Towanda, Thursday, May 10,1866,
We printed last week a report of the re
sult of the deliberations of the joint Con
gressional Reconstruction Committee. The
report embraces a joint resolution propo
sing the amendment of the Constitution of
the United States ; a bill to provide for the
restoration of the States in insurrection, to
their full political rights ; and a bill de
claring certain persons inelegible to office
under the Government of the United States.
The amendment to the Constitution contains
the vital principle of national life, freedom
and justice. It interdicts a State from
abridging the privileges and immunities of
citizens of the United States, and creates a
bar to every State depriving any person of
life,liberty or property without due process
of law. It bases representation on popula
tion, counting the whole number of persons,
excluding Indians not taxed, and where the
elective franchise is denied, those thus ex
cluded shall not be estimated in an appor
tionment. This is radically just, practical
and proper,placing every State on an equal
ity from which no advantage can be derived
by a Commonwealth or section. The dis
franchisement of all who the
rebellion, for four years, is provided for,and
the debt of the traitors repudiated by the
United States, and its repudiation enforced
on all the lately revolted States by pro
viding for the annulling of all legislation
having its payment in view. The princi
ples of the amendment have been endorsed
in the platforms of the Union Republican
party of the several States, and we are per
fectly willing to go before the people with
the same issue in its present shape.
The lately revolted States which ratify
the amendment to the Constitution above
referred to, and which change their Con
stitutions and laws to conform therewith,
shall at once be entitled to rehabilitation.
All persons identified with the Confeder
ate States as President and Vice President,
those of other countries who acted as agents
of the Confederacy, Heads of Departments
of the United States, officers of the army
and navy of the United States,graduates of
naval or military academy of the United
States, Judges of the United States Courts
and members of Congress of the United
States who gave aid to the rebellion, are
forever excluded from all offices of honor or
trust in the gift of the government or the
people of the United States. It also ex
cludes from office all persons who held com
missions in the rebel army above the grade
of Colonel.
The removal of PALEMON JOHN as assessor
of Internal Revenue, for this District, and
the appointment of ROBERT J. CLARK to that
office, is the most flagrant political outrage
ever perpetrated upon a party. It is not a
usual case of political proscri ptior. Dr. John
has peculiar claims upon the respect and sup
port of the present Administration. He has
been for years the publisher of an able
I nion Journal, in a County where the dom
unant party is intensely disloyal. He has
struggled against adverse circumstances
such as would have discouraged any man
with the usual amount of courage and en
ergy, and has fought the battles of Right,
perseveringly and successfully.
He has doubtless by the display of the
honorable and courageous qualities he show
ed, made himself enemies of professed Re
publicans, who have not the soul to appre
ciate his merits and his labors, and who
envy him the possession and display of those
hign parts, which they feel they stand so
much in need of. Such men would embrace
the first opportunity to strike down one so
much above them ; and their enmity and
jealousy is the highest meed of praise they
could accord him. They may, by means of
a renegade President, and a faithless Ad
ministration deprive him of office, but they
cannot wrest from him his high reputation
as an honest and faithful officer, and his
great renown as a valiant champion of the
cause of equal rights.
We must confess that we are somewhat
surprised to see ROBERT F. CLARK lending
himsolf to senator BUCKALEW and doing the
dirty work of this faithless Administration-
Mr. CLARK has disappointed his many friends
in this County. The assurance from those
who have known him longer, that nothing
better was to be expected from him, does
not lessen that disappointment. He has
placed himself in a position where no hon
orable man would be found, and as he has
made his own bed, so let him lie in it. If
the machinations of Copperheads are con
genial to his feelings, let him aid them in
carrying out their scheme for punishing
those who unlike himself decline to stultify
themselves, by becoming recreant to their
principles. He can only succeed in bring
ing upon himself the contempt of every
right thinking man. The Republican party
and its great principles, are above his reach,
and his impotent efforts to destroy either
will only bring upou him derision.
The Senate will probably hesitate before
it confirms Mr. CLARK'S appointment,or that
of any other man made under similar cir
cumstances The disposition shown in that
body to intefere in these gross and outra.
geous cases of political proscription is al
ready working much good. Such men as
Mr. CLARK will hesitate in their schemes of
demoralizing the Republican Party, when
they find that the reward of their treachery
is doubtful, We trust that the senate will
reject them, and satisfy the universal de- j
sire of the Republican Party.
#© Hon. John Ilogan, one of the Mis
souri Congressmen, asserted in a speech at
St. Louis, on Tuesday night, that he had
been informed by one of the Judges of the
United States Supreme Court, that the
Missouri preachers' and lawyers' test oath
law was unconstitutional. The decision
will not be officially made public until next
A large and enthusiatic Mass Meeting of
the Republicans of Bradford County was
held in the C >urt House, on Monday even
ing last. The meeting was organized by
the election of EMANUEL GYER Presi
Sect's. The President upon taking the
chair, in a forcible and eloquent manner,
stated the objects of the meeting, and ably
discussed the political topics of the day.
Hon. GEORGE LANDON being called upon, re
sponded in a speech, which was received
by great enthusiasm and unanimity of en
dorsement from the hundreds present. It
was one of the ablest efforts of Mr. LANDON,
in saying this we give but stinted praise.
The whole meeting was pervaded with an
earnestness and enthusiasm of feeling
which agurus well for the coming cam
paign. Bradford County will honor the
soldiers and the principles for which they
fough, by giving to their representative
man, Gen. John VY. Geary, a majority that
will put to shame all enemies of our coun
trie's best interest.
KQL. At Petersburgh, Va., on Monday
night last two churches belonging to the
colored people were set on fire and con
sumed, and during the conflagration anoth
er was discovered to be on fire, but in time
to save the building. The event has caus
ed much excitement in the community.
The Index says : From every quarter and
from all classes, we have heard an unbrok
en comment of regret and indignation that
there could have been found within the
limits of Petersburgh one heart so profli
gate and abandoned as to inflict this outrage
on our colored people, and there is a dispo
sition equally wide-spread to take every
possible means to hunt down the author or
authors of the crime. If the guilty parties
imagine that they would find the faintest
shadow of approval of their villainy in the
sympathy of this community, they have
been wofully deceived. In no part of Vir
ginia, or of the South, does a better feeling
exist between the whites and blacks.
Col. J. W. Burke, of the Tenth Ohio,
has published a statement of the sufferings
of the people for food in North Alabama.
He says the destitution extends through all
those counties lying south of the Tennessee
River, and constituting what is called the
mountain region of Alabama. The close of
the war found the people destitute even of
the necessaries of life,and last year, no rain
falling throughout that region, their slen
der crops were burnt to a crisp by the
fierce rays of the sun. Without money,
crops or any resources whatever the peo
ple have been reduced to a state of suffer
ing which equals in ghastliness the hor
rid scenes of the Irish famine years.
A correspondent of the Cincinnati
Gazette, writing from Nashville says of the
late riot at Memphis, that "every report
renders more certain the fact that the affair
was a savage outrage upon the blacks num
bers of whom were murdered without pro
vocation, and only to gratify the barbarous
passions engendered by slavery and trea
son. At first it was thought the blacks
were guilty of commencing the disturbance,
but even that is successfully disputed, and
the whole thing appears to have originated
from the asault of the police upon some dis
charged colored soldiers, who, although
making a noise, were neither injuring or
molesting anybody."
George Feet, the hotel proprietor at
the foot of Ovvasco Lake, Cayuga County,
who was arrested some months since for
the murder of his wife by poison, but broke
jail and escaped to Canada, was rearrested
not long ago. On Friday last, when on
the train from Rochester to Auburn, in cus
tody of two officers, he asked permission to
go into the water-closet, which was gran
ted—his custodians neglecting the precau
tion of going with him. Not returning the
door was opened, when Peet was discover
ed with his throat cut from ear to ear. He
was already on the point of death and lived
but a few minutes longer.
The Montreal Gazette of May 1 says:
" Mrs. JEFFERSON DAVIS left that city yes
terday for Fortress Monroe, with permis
sion to visit her husband. She is a woman
of superior personal appearance and man
ners, with a highly cultivated miud, and
admirable power of conversation. A son
is at the Bishop's College, Lennoxville, and
a little daughter at the Couvent of the Sa
cred Heart, Sault-au-Recollet. The mother
and two sisters are residents of this city.
JttS" Among- the recent conversions in
Illinois under the preaching of the famous
revivalist, Rev. Mr. HAMMOND, is Hon.
JOHN T. LINSDAY, of Peoria, Senator from
that district. Since his conversion he has
addressed large meetings at Springfield
and other points with wonderful power and
eloquence. Hon. W. W. O'BRIEN, a lead
ing Democratic lawyer of Peoria, and here
tofore a strong Roman Catholic, is also en
gaged in the same work with Mr. LINDSAY.
JJ©" The steamship Peruvian arrived oft"
Father Point Thursday, with five days
later news from Europe. Much alarm was
felt in England with regard to the steamers
City of Washington and Propontis, both of
which were iong overdue when the Peruvi
an left. The Reform Bill was still the cen
tre of political interest in England. The
prospects of a ministerial majority were
less brilliant, owing to the unseating of
Liberal members on the ground of corrup
tion at the elections. The German question
was still unsettled, and all sorts of contra
dictary rumors were flying about. It was
reported at oue time that an amicable ar
rangement had been effected, but this was
contradicted by later dispatches. We
have a report of a great victory of the
Chinese Imperialists over the rebels in the
northeast. Fifty thousand Taepingg are
are said to have been slaughtered or taken
the murderer of the DEERING fami'y, has
been convicted of murder in the lirst de
gree, and sentenced to be hung. After the
sentence had been pronounced by Judge
ALLISON in a Bolemn and deeply impressive
manner, Mr. EBKN, the official interpreter,
turned to the murderer, and asked him if
he understood it. He repled, "Yes, all of
the priucidal things ; but some words I did
not understand."
Mr. EBEN turned his head, when the mur
derer called to him, Baying, "The Judge
forgot to tell me when I am going to be
Mr. EBEN explained that the Governor
would fix the time, and PROBST said, "Yes,
that's it."
The wretch never moved a muscle of his
face or neck duriug or after the passage of
the dread sentence of the law.
On Friday last, the quiet town of
Crommell, Conn., was thrown into an in
tense excitement by the discovery of a foul
murder within its precincts. Near the
edge of a wood, in an open lot, a farmer in
repairing his fence, came upon the naked
body of a young woman, that had evident
ly been dead for several days. The bruis
ed condition of the head and other parts of
the body, gave unmistakable proof that
she had been murdered. At the last ac
counts no clue hud been found throwing
any light on the mysterious affair.
WASHINGTON, Thursday, May 3, 18(30.
In the Senate yesterday, Mr. CHANDLER,
from the Conference Committee on the Cu
ban Telegraph Bill, made a report, which
was agreed to. The bill now awaits the
signature of the President. A bill to pay
JOHN ERICSSON $13,930 fpr services in plan
ning the war steamer Princeton,, was called
up by Mr. ANTHONY and passed. The bill
to reimburse the State of West Virginia
for her expenses in calling out and equipp
ing troops, was called up by Mr. VAN WIN
KLE. The amount called for is $368,548.
The bill to regulate commercial and postal
communication between the States, com
monly called the Railroad Bill, was next
taken up, and occupied the attention of the
Senate for the rest of the day. The Post
office Appropriation Bill was recalled from
the House, and its reconsideration fixed for
Monday next.
Iu the House the vote rejecting the Army
Bill was reconsidered and the bill recom
mitted. Voluminous testimony from the
Reconstruction Committee was reported.
Mr. ASHLEY, of Ohio, from the Committee
on Territories, reported a substitute for the
House bill to amend the act of May 20,
1804, providing a temporary Government
for Montana. The first section authorizes
the Governor to reapportion the Territory ;
and the second section annuls all the acts
of the so-called Legislative Assembly,
which met in the City of Virginia on the
sth of March, 1860, and forbids the pay
ment of money to the members thereof.
The substitute was agreed to, and the bill,
as amended, was passed. Mr. ASHLEY, of
Ohio, also reported back the Senate Bill
1 passed March 14, enlarging the boundaries
of the State of Nevada by including part of
Utah aud Arizona, and the bill was passed.
A joint resolution was passed to encourage
the sinking of artesian wells along the
mail routes in the Territories by grants of
public land. The bill to admit Colorado
into the Union wa3 then taken from the
Speaker's table. The House refused, by a
vote of 29 to 109 to lay it on the table, and
refused to commit it by a vote ol 64 to 74 .
The bill was then considered and passed
without'amendment; yeas 80, nays 55. The
bill to incorporate the National Soldiers'
and Sailors' Orphan Asylum was referred
to the Judiciary Committee.
In the Senate, the bill to provide for the
payment of Quartermaster's stores and sub
sistence supplies furnished the army by
loyal citizens was read three times, and
laid over till Tuesday next. Several peti
tious were offered and referred, and private
claims considered.
Iu the House, ou motion of Mr. STEVENS,
a joint resolution was unanimously passed
congratulating the Emperor and people of
Russia on his recent Providential escape
from the danger of assassination. The re
port of the Conference Committee on the
Habeas Corpus Bill was agreed to, and the
bill now waits the signature of the Presi
dent. The bill authorizing the construction
of thq lateral branch of the Baltimore and
Potomac Railroad into the District of Col
umbia was passed; also the bill to incor
porate the National Association to Educate
Colored Men for the Christian Ministry.
The House tlieu took up the bill to revive
the grade of General in the United States
Army, and was addressed by Mr. DEMI NO,
Mr RAYMOND and other members in favor of
the bill, which was passed by an almost
unanimouo vote—yeas, 116 ; nays, 11.
The Harrisburg Patriot —State organ of
the Clymer Copperhead party—says that a
Johnson State convention is to be held at
Pittsburg in July next to nominate a can
didate for Governor to help doleat Gen.
Geary. Senator Cowan is engineering the
movement, and he is backed by the Presi
dent and leading Copperheads throughout
the State. The plan is to remove all Gov
ernment officers who do not join the John
son party, and to fill their places with Re
publicans and Democratic Unionists of easy
conscience, who will work for the Presi
dent's 'policy' and Cowan's ticket. A strong
attempt will be made to defeat the Repub
lican candidates for Congress in close dis
tricts, aud to return a majority of Copper
heads to the next Legislature, in which
case, as a reward for Cowan's treachery, he
is promised a re-election to the U. S. Sen
ate. Cowan is now,and has been for weeks,
in correspondence with members of the Cop
perhead State and County Committees,who
are instructed by him to fiud out aud report
the names of each Government office-holder !
who refuses to sustain the president, and
also the name of some hungry office-seeker
in the same district, who can be bought to
fill his place. It is said that Col. Richard
Coulter, of Westmoreland county, has beciri
fixed upon as the Johnson candidate for
Governor—we presume with his consent.
This Clymer-Coultor Cowan-Copperhead '
game is a very pretty one—but it will not :
win. It is an admission of Clymer's weak- !
ness by his own party leaders, which will i
lose him many votes of the rank and file, j
Besides, intrigues of this sort never do win
when brought to the popular test. The
Union men of the State have no occasion of
alarm. Let them organize thoroughly in
every district —close up their ranks—charge
upon the enemy, aud victory will be theirs
without a doubt.
