Towanda, Thursday, January 18, 1866.
The following article is from that sterl
ing Republican sheet, the Pittsburg Gazette,
is so apropos that we adopt it as our own :
For four long years we have been engag
ed in the most gigantic and bloodiest war
ever waged. Wicked men, to perpetuate
a great wrong on four millions of men, at
tempted to overthrow the government, and
have caused the death of five hundred
thousand men and have involved the na
tion in a debt of three billions of dollars ;
their pirates have swept our seas, their
barbarous prison-keepers have starved and
tortured our prisoners, their incendiaries
have fired our dwellings, and from a "neu.
■ral " province they have sought to smug
gle contagious, loathsome and fatal dis
eases into our cities. Every cruelty has
been practiced, and every possible means
resorted to to dismember our nation and
bring degredation and ruin upon us. By
vigorous and long continued eflorts and the
smiles of Him who regardeth the right and
hateth oppression, they have been thwar
ted in their plans, and defeat and forcible
submission to the government they have
hated, is theirs.
While the war was raging furiously, and
good and brave men were falling thickly,
and our men suffering the unparalleled hor
rors of Southern prisons, and tears were
flowing freely from all parts of the North
for husbands, fathers and brothers slain,
we talked much, and to us it seemed sensi
bly, of confiscation of rebel property and of
debarring forever from any office under the
United States any one who voluntarily
took any part against the nation's life.
Even later we have been told again and
again " treason must be made odious.";
Many months have passed since the taking i
of Richmond, the surrender of Lee and the j
capture of the prince of traitors, and is!
treason less "odious" now than it was ? On i
ihe contrary, if we can credit the multi
plied testimony which comes to us from va- j
rious sources, from rebels themselves di- j
rectly, from many officers of our army who t
have beeu long-at the South, from reports 1
of Generals, from competent and reliable
witnesses who are at the South, from the
action of Presbyteries, Synods, and Clerical
Conventions, from the actual rebels whom
they insultingly have elected to represent
them in our Congress, are we not compelled
to-believe that, though they have necessa
rily submitted to the "arbitrament of the
sword," yet they have the same hostile
spirit, and that the pageantry of treason no
lo iger lingers in the sunny portion of our
land, but that treason itself is less unpopu
lar, less odious now than it was at the
close of the war ? It is not necessary
that we should go to the South in order to
observe this state of feeling. We have
testimony in abundance, similar to that on
which we rely for facts which are unques
tioned. Neither are we shut up to two
witnesses, one of whom made a trip of a
few days to the South. Shall we not take
all the evidence on all sides, and carefully
examine it and form our own opinions, or
shall we take the opinions of others blind
ly, of like a certain lawyer and senator,
apparently conscious of a bad eause, reject
without examination the great mass of ev
idence which was against him and "coarse
ly," not in a polished and scholarly man
ner, dwell on the evidence of two whose
views correspond with his own. They have
boasted in this very city, that they will
have a wny to disnose of all %vlio -shall go
South to interfere with their plans ; they
speak of their " plans when they secure
'equal' rights to all sections and while
they pass the constitutional amendment, as
Gen. Schurz says, the emancipation of the
| slave is submitted to only so far as chattel
slavery in the old form could not be kept
up. But although the freedman is no lon
ger considered the property of the individ
ual muster, he is considered- the slave of
society, and all independent State Legisla
tion will show the tendency to make him
such. The ordinance abolishing slavery
passed by the conventions under pressure
of circumstances will not be looked upon
as barring the establishment of a new form
of servitude. We well remember the bold
and defiant air, and venomous spirit of the
aiders and abettors of treason, who defen
ded the South in the late General Assem
bly in ibis city. The truth is the effects of
the system of slavery on masters, render
ing them tyrannical, unfeeling and selfish,
are still there ; and hatred towards tie
North still exists, and they will be ready
to engage in any measure which will tend !
to undo all the good that has been done. '
We are told on the very 1 est authority that
loyal men will not be able to live in certain
Southern States if the Union troops are!
withdrawn. Is not the proof ample and 1
conclusive, that there is still much to be
done at the South to protect loyal men, and
the freedmen —to secure loyal represent a-!
tives and fair represent sit ion and to pro- j
teet ourselves against combinations to se
cure the passage of acts of repudiation of
our national debt, before the men who, ;
since our last Congress met, were heartily i
and wholly engaged in treason and rebell- '
ion, shall be admitted to seats in our na-1
tional councils?
Whether the Southern States were theo
retically out of the I nion or one can
deny that practically they were out, that
they were so treated, and that like other of
fenders against law, they should not be re
ston d to all the privileges they have justly
forfeited, as soon as they arc arrested, and
can possibly go no further. Does the Sen
ator from Pennsylvania, usually in criminal
c isos plead for mercy and forgiveness at d
"peace by consent and not by force? ' What
folly to speak of such a peace after the war
we have passed through to secure "peace!"
Here we have just the language which dis
loyal men North and South have been using
for years. "Lotus go jn for peace," said
prince of traitors over and over. "Union
by forcible measures never can succeed,"
said others. As to the condition of the
South we an; not shut Up to the testimony
of two men or of twenty men, and if dis
posed to look at this matter fairly we shall
see that all yet is not right at the South,
and that 110 harm can result from waiting
a little before we admit traitors and rebels
to make our laws.
We see no proper cause for so great a
change iu some of the Republican papers,
and their striking hands with those who till
along have been against us. If a merchant
lias a clerk who had been robbing him and
seeking his ruin, and if the clerk should be
seized and forcibly held the merchant would
not feel called upon to restore him at once
to his employ and lull confidence ; or if he
had been a partner, he would not feel re
quired to do so. One year ago we would
not have believed that any Republican pa
pers would have advocated any such meas
ures. Let us not have this hot haste ; let
us have time to test a little of their loyalty
and willingness to do justice to the Uniou
men, white and black of the South. Al
ready they have, as General Sherman says,
more privileges than they would have in
any other country. •
WASHINGTON, D. C., Jan. 11, 186FI.
Being in position to observe the action of Con
gress from day to day, I will endeavor to give you
occasionally, as time permits, a synopsis of such
measures under consideration, as seem to be most
interest to your readers, as well as my own impres
sions of the general aspect of public aff airs as they
are presented to my mind from this stand-point.
There seems to be so much unanimity among
members of Congress, in favor of giving to tbe
early enlisted soldiers who stood the brunt of the
rebellion, the same pay and bounty as those who
entered the army after 18(i;S, as to .cave little doubt
that such a law will be passed during the present
Bilks are pending in both branches of Congress,
proposing to confer, under proper restrictions, the
elective franchise upon the negroes in the District
of Columbia,and the indications are that the meas
ure will soon become a law. This Distric is cer
tainly a very proper place to begin the experiment.
The opponents of negro suffrage here, flntter them
selves, that such a bill would be vetoed by the
President, but reliable information, contradicts
this supposition, and leaves better room to doubt
that the President would approve the measure.
In the unsettled state of affairs relating to the
reconstruction of the governments of the .States
lately in rebellion, it is impossible to arrive at a
conclusion as to the filial result. I may safely say
however, that from present indications, none of tlie
persons claiming seats in Congress from those
•states will be admitted under the present condition
of things ; and that those State governments will
be treated by Congress as unorganized, until tbe
people of thoee States manifest a willingness to
accept aud abide by the legitimate results of the
war. Yours most Respectfully,
passed by the Louisiana Legislature for the
government of freedmen reduces them al
most to a state of slavery again. To talk
of " freedom" with such a law on the stat
ute book is only a mockery. There is no
liberty to make contracts for six months,
or for three, or to make none, but the la
borer is bound by law to make a contract
of seme sort during the first ten days of
January for the whole year. He may not
| be offered a dollar a month for his labor—
, he is bound by this law to take the best
i offer ho can get during these ten days. The
planters may make what agreement they
; choose as to price ; they have only to hold
j out ten days and the laborers must either
i assent to their terms to take the conse
-1 quences of violating the law. The freed
men must hire by families when they exist,
and the contract with the head of the fami
ly is binding on all the members. Only
I one-half of the wages is to be paid as fast
as earned, and if the laborer leaves before
j his contract expires fie forfeits all that is
j due him.
FROM EUROPE. —The steamship Scotia ar
rived at New-York Friday morning, with
! seven days' later intelligence from Europe.
The Fenian excitement is England had re
j ceived a fresh impulse from the circum
i stance that several regiments of English
troops had been dispatched in haste to Ire
land. Military movements indicated either
great danger or remarkable credulity on
the part of the authorities. Special ser
vices bad been held in Westminister \b

anniversary of the foundation of the Abbey

Ihe President has communicated to Con
gress important correspondence which has

pears tha: the special agent from Mexico
who visited \\ ashington iu July carried a
letter from Maximdlion to the President,
and that the latter declined to receive it.
The recognition of Maximillian has been
asked by France, and refused by our Gov
ernment, and the French Government has
been warned that friendly relations with
this country will be seriously jeopardized
by the continuance of its armed interven
tion in Mexico.
tear Last week, as a railroad train was
stopping at Gordonsville to put off the mail,
quite a crowd who had assembled there •
made an assault upon tlie mail agent, who
was a Northern man—as the Post-office De
partment appoint none who cannot take the
oath. They informed him that they would
not allow any ankee to run on their roads.
Words led to blows, and the train moving
oil the mail agent escaped with his life. On
reporting this to the Post-office Department,
Gov Randall immediately struck Gordons-1
ville from the list of post-offices, and trains
now run by that point.
