UKEKLEY AS DAVIS' BAIL.
HORACE GREELEY seems to think I
that all who find fault with him for'
becoming Jefferson Davis' bail, are
common way, of common men, when
they get into a bad scrape, are call
ed to an account, aud are unable to
offer any justification for bad con
duct, to feel, and to say they are
abused, and abuse ;s not worth re
plying to ; but we did not think Mr.
G. would attempt to hide himself un
der this old subterfuge. Now what
are the facts in this case ? Why,
that the entire republican party, so
far as any expression has been given
it has been pretty generally
given) condemns Mr. Greeley's act
iu offering himself as security for the
arch traitor. All the men, and all
the papers, in the party, denounce
the act as an unmitigated piece of
lolly ; and yet, almost all these--the
people and the papers—up to this
time, have been friendly to Mr. G.,
and have looked upon him as an able
leader ; aud now, because these con
demn his action in the premises, they
are called enemies, and are scurril
ous. They pity the man and con
demn the act, but it is not the work
of enemies, and the reason why they
find fault with his action is, because
it is wrong. They would not com
plain if those who thought aud act
ed with Davis, went his bail. His
traitorous proceeding was right in
their eyes, and it was only consist
ent in them to help him, when he
needed help. But for one, who had
always contended that the rebellion
was a crime, to assist in releasing
from punishment the head and front
of that rebellion, makes nimseif not
only inconsistent, but he becomes the
apologist for the criminals' wrongs.
Do honest men, who condemn horse
stealing, house-breaking, pick-pock
eting, &c., usually become the se
curities of this class of desperadoes?
And it b because Horace Greeley,
has, indirectly, at least, approved of
Jefferson Davis' crimes, by bailing
him away from punishment, that the
republicans all over the land, con
demn him. Not for the reason that
they are his enemies, but because he
has done wrong. By this step, he
has lost more than he is aware of,
and more than he will recover acrain
soon. He may swagger, and boast
his indifference, but no man can (and
he is not a man if he can) be indif
ferent to the censure of a whole na
tion, such as the republican party
now represents. Greeley, like ev
ery one else who is infatuated with
his own wrong, says he was right in
doing as he did. He alone has the
sagacity, the intelligence, the liber
ality and magnanimity, to compre
hend fully the generosity and noble
ness which led him into this step—
lolly in our judgment. This grows
out of excessive vanity, aud egotism
with which the Tribune's editor has
been sorely aillicted for the last ten
years. He has not been proof against
the flattery aud adulation which has
been heaped upon him. The truth is,
it has nearly, and is in a fair way of
ruining the man altogether.
It may seem like a bold assertion
in us to say, that the Tribune's edi
torials, in which arguments are ad
vanced in justification of Mr. Gree
ley's conduct iu becoming surety for
Jeff. Davis, appear absurd, and yet
such is the fact.
Look at it. The main reason as
signed for Davis, is that he
lias been kept in prison for two years,
and yet has not been convicted of any
crime! Mr. Greeley does not know
that Davis headed a rebellion against
the government of the United States,
and caused, through it, the commis
sion of all the crimes that were ever
committed against a people, oh no,
he does not kuow this. It must be
proven before a jury before he will
believe it. Is this not mockery ? Is
it not an outrage upon the under
standing of the people who suffered j
so fearfully through Davis' villainous
crimes ? And then, it was such a
disgrace to the nation, such a gross
injustice to keep an arch-traitor two
years in prison before he had beep,
convicted of crime ! Oh yes, accord
ing to Greeley's logic, Jefferson Da
vis alone has been the sufferer in this
controversy and fight with the Uni
ted States. Where is his folly lead
ing him '( He says, the mass of the
American nation hold that Davis
should be hung for his crimes, and
while he has received no just punish
ment, still Greeley contends that two
years imprisonment is a great wrong
to a man that ought to be hung.
The malicious Bpite of Greeley, as
exhibited in his lliug at Bryant and
Weed, adds a bad spot in his heart
to the want ol sense he has shown in
this bail business. We have no lik
ing for Weed, but was it air to
draw a comparison between him and
j Davis! 1 At most a rumor,or surmise
is atioat, that Weed was concerned
in a cheat against the government,
and on a trial at court, it could not
be proven against him. Yet how is
it with Davis. Is there any doubt of
his having been a traitor '( This is
a certainty, and all can say it with
impunity, but Greeley dare not say
that Bryant and Weed were concern
ed in a fraud against the government;
yet he will meanly insinuate it.
In his last article of self defense,
Mr. Greeley gives extracts from the
Richmond Whig, the Lynchburg Fir
ginian, and Baltimore Sun, three ram
pant rebel organs, showing that he
did right in going bail for Davis.—
What worse could he have done ?
Docs not every republicau in the
laud know that not only these three,
but more than three hundred rebel
and copperhead organs will laud his
act as so much of a justification of
Davis' crimes, aud that of all the
other rebels ? But are these quota
tions not fatal to Greeley's defense ?
Is he not hard up, has he not got in
to bad company, when he is obliged
to take extracts from rebel papers to
justify his acts. It seems to us, he
is rehearsing the 'bull in the meshes,'
the more lie struggles the deeper he
gets in. He declares that those who
charge that he went Davis' bail for
the sake of uotorcty, " abuse him,
throw mud at him," &c., and of course
throwing mud is wrong. Hear what
he says : " Nine-tenths of those
now loudest in condemning that re
lease are heartily glad of it, and on
ly affect the contrary because they
thereby gratify a spite, or hope to
advance their own fortunes at the
expense of some one else. If they
could have Davis back in Fortress
Monroe this hour by simply wishing
it they would not." It is wrong in
us tb attribute seltish motives to G.
Is it right in him to attribute them
to us ? Then, what spite have we
to gratify ? Or how is our fortune
advanced by censuring Greeley for
his errors? We would not, if we
could, wish Davis back to Fortress
Monroe to be entertained like a
prince, but we would send him to
the gallows, or to an Audersouville
prison during his natural life.
Mr. Greeley predicts that all those
who find fault with the release of
Davis, and with him for assisting in
the matter, will, " ere three years are
passed, protest that they did not
mean it," or in other words, regret
their condemnation of this business.
This is barely possible, but highly
improbable ; and while Mr. G. has
set us the example, we will also pro
phecy : and that is, that he will
deeply regret this Davis bail trans
action ere three years are ended, un
less indeed, he goes entirely over to
the enemy, and there is now some
danger of this ; even then, we can
not see how he can get rid of deep
Netus of tl)c lUctk.

—Anson G. B. Dodge, of New

The location of this land is on the Smctk

County. Good roads are being opened to
the railroad, and it is expected that during
the summer a good road will be made to
bring this "settlement" directly in commun
ication with Clearfield. There is no ques
tioning such liberality and enterprise. So
says the Haraisburg Tattyraph.
