.For the Democrat,
A History of the Great Struggle in
America between Liberty
and Despotism.
The Tribune, in an article entitled " the
Progress of reconstruction," says :
" We have had enough of the Military
bill to see how it works. Thus far we are
satisfied. The Generals are doing as well
as can be expected, generally operating
a good deal better. We could have wish
ed some things otherwise, but we try to
remember that these men are in positions
that have no parallel in our history, and
we trust will remain •without a parallel.
Under the orders of the President, they
are charged with the execution of a poli
cy which the President assures us he de
tests, and has, only received from him a
petulent toleration. Every day we are
told that ho is about to interfere ; that
Stanberry is preparing an opinion that
will upset everything ; that Sheridan is
to be removed from the Gulf, and Thom
as from the Mountains ; and that his Ex
cellency is about to take things in his own
hands, and rush the South back to the
Union. We have little fear of the Presi
dent as long as the Judiciary Committee
is i❑ session to checkmate him if necessa
Secretary Seward, while on a visit with
'the President to his birth-place in North
Carolina, made a speech which contains
the following allusion to the present state
of the nation. He says:
" At the present time there is an eclipse
passing over our Constellation and from'
the Southern limb. Don't believe with
the savage that an eclipse can obliterate
the Constellation. If Washington could
now be called from the grave, and the
questions at issue be referred to him, he
would say, 'No delay in the restoration
of the entire country.' Ido not aspire to
be a greater than Washington." •
President Johnson at the same place
said, " My object has been to sustain the.
institutions of a free government."
What has caused this eclipse to pass
over our Constellation but the blotting
out the institutions of a free government,
and the substitution of a military despo
tism ? No wonder the President "de
tests" such a policy, and shrinks from the
awful duty imposed upon of assisting a
band of traitors in veiling the orb of
American liberty with the pall of dark
ness and death The Tribune says, "the
Generals in the Southern States are in po
sitions that have no parallel in our histo
ry." Yes, no parallel in our history un
der the free government established by
Washington. But is it forgotten that
such an eclipse passed over the American
continent precisely a century ago ? That
the positions of the generals in the South
ern States find their parallel in the posi
tions of the generals commanding the
troops of George 111.
Then let ns turn our attention to the
period that marks just a century of years,
and.view the scenes of those dark and
troublous days of the eclipse of liberty,
and there shall we find the paralleliii
these: The corresponding convulsions in
the political atmosphere; the renewal of
the same tragic scents; the repetition of
the same disastrous events ; in short, the
performance of the same tragedy of Amer
ican Freedom—the eclipse of the same
celestial orb of Liberty.
The eclipse of a century . ago com
menced in the North instead of the South.
The obscuration of the Sun of Freedom
began in .Massachusetts Bay. In the his
tory of the Province of Massachusetts
Bay from 1749 to 1774, by Thomas Hut- '
chinson, LL.D., formerly Governor of the
Province, occurs the following account of
the rebellious conduct of the people.
" Parliament, though it has not the
right to impose taxes upon any part of
the empire 7 has in some cases thought fit
to forbear doing it upon parts not repre
sented, or having no share in the selec
fion of members. This is the case of Ire
land at this day. This was the case oft
Wales after its submission .until it was
represented. In other matters the legis- I
lative power - was exercised over both
those countries whenever it was judgisl
necessary. And if the claim made by
Massachusetts Bay to a representation in
Parliament had been continued, probably
it would have been acceded to, or taxes
would have been forborne. But the claim
had scarcely been made before it was ,
withdrawn, and
,publicly renounced in
mostofthe colonies, and by the first eon
' vention in 1705_4 New York. They re—
solved to import no goods from England.

persecuted for several weeks after by the
rabble collected to interrupt customers

Feb. 22d, 1770, a mob more powerful
titan common collected before the house
of one of them, a shopkeeper of fair char
acter.* He fled 'to his house for shelter.
The mob surrounded his house and threw
stones and brickbats through the win
dows, and as it appeared upon trial, were
forcing their way in, when he fired upon
them and killed a boy of eleven or twelve
years old. lie was soon seized, and ano
ther person with him who happened to
be in the house. They were in danger of
being sacrificed to the rage of the people,
being dragged through the streets, and a
halter being prepared. The boy that was
killed was the son of a poor man, but a
grand funeral was judged very proper
for him. Young and old of all ranks and
orders attended in solemn procession from
Liberty-tree to the town house and then
to the burying ground.
" A more tragical affair happened soon
after. The troops were insulted, and
hissed, and pelted with pieces of ice.—
Captain Preston ordered them to desist,
or they would be fired upon. But the as
sailants coatinu&l to .pelt the troops, dar

immediately fired, and all the rest, one ex
cepted, followed the example. Three men
were killed outright, two died soon atter.
Gray, one of the killed, bad been in fre
quent quarrels with the soldiers; and he,
kith Attucks, a mulatto, another of the
killed, were the most active in this attack
upon the ,soldiers. One of the British
soldiers, on his death bed, said he had
seen mobs in Ireland, but never knew
troops to bear so much without firing, as
these had done."
This is the version of the Royal Gov.
ernor of Massachusetts of what is known
in histdry as the "Massacre of Boston,"
and the riotous proceedings of the rebels
of that State. These troops which were
insulted, hissed, and pelted with pieces of
ice, were the troops of George 111., who
had crossed the Atlantic, says John Han
cock, "not to engage an enemy, but to
assist a band of traitors in the British Par
liament in trampling on the rights and
liberties of the people." By turning to
the Declaration of Independence, which
is headed with the name of this patriot,
we shall find what is meant by trampling
on the rights and liberties of the Ameri
can people. It says :
"The history of the present King of
Great Britain is a history of repeated in
juries and usnrpntions, all having in direct
object the establishment of an absolute

posed taxes upon us without our consent;
kept among us in times of pence standing
armies withnut the consent of our Legis
latures ; affected to render the Military
independent of; and superior to the civil
power. He has combined with others to
subject us td a jurisdiction foreign to our

laws ; for taking away our charters, and
altering fundamentally our form of gov
ernment ; for suspending our own Legis

with power to legislate for us in all cases
whatsoever. He has . excited domestic

" When the people are oppressed,wben
their rights are infringed, when taskmas
ters are set over them, when unconstitu
tional acts are created by a military. force
before their eyes t while they have the
spirit of freemen they will boldly assert
their freedom, and they are to be justified
in so doing. I know very well that to
murmur or even whisper a .complain,
some men call a riotous spirit ; but they
are in the right to complain, and com
plain aloud ; and they will complain until
they are eit her .redressed, or become pour
deluded altipes, fitted to be made the
slaves of arbitrary power. To submit UP
the civil magistrate in the legal exercise
of power, is the part of a good subject,
but to be called to an account by a com
mon soldier, or any soldier, is a badge of
slavery which none but a slave will wear.
" Military power is by no means calcu
lated' to convince the understandings of
men. It may affright the women and
children, and perhaps some weak men out
of their senses, but will never awe a sen
sible American tamely to surrender his
liberty. Among the brutal herd the
strongest horns are the strongest laws.—
But to a reasonable being there is nothing
more-in military achievement, any more
than in knight errautry, so terrifying as
to induce him to part with the choicest
gift that Heaven bestows upon man.
" Are citizens to be called upon and put
tinder arrest by the military, in breach of
the fundamental rights of subjects, and
contrary to the laws of the land ? Are
these the blessings of government ? Is
this the method to reconcile the people
to the administration ? The presence of
the military to enforce obedience to un
just laws causes all the strifes, and upon
those who sent, them here rests all the re
sponsibility of the blood which has flowed
or is yet to flow."

The Evil and the Remedy.
The reckless course pursued by the late
Radical Legislature of this State is exci
`,Aug much indignant comment. The Rad
icals were in a large majority in both
branches, and the Executive Department
of the government was and is controlled
by the same party. The interests of the
tax-payer were in no way consulted. Jobs
of the worst character were enacted.—

seemed to e

personal considerations.
The Inquirer recently said, "there nev
er was a period in the histgry of our pub
lic affairs when the real interests of the
public were as little cared for. Schemes
of laws-.were brought forward with such
profuse recklessness that they were emp
tied out upon the clerk's table, daily, by
the bushel." In referring to the two acts
to which public attention is now direct
ed, the liquor law and the Gettysburg
Asylum scheme, the Press recently said :
"No one can deny that the manner of
their passage was disgraceful." In fact
the real beauties of Radical legislation are
only beginning to unfold themselves. So
utterly shameless has this corrupt and in
famous organization become, that its ae
tion is extorting an unwilling condemna
tion even from its own partisans.
It is now time that the people should
take this matter in hand. At the coming
election, let none but faithful and 'reliable
representatives be chosen. If the Demo
cratic party will place in nomination the
right kind of a ticket, it will sweep the
Radical party from existence this fall.—
The masses are ripe for a change. They
want retbrm. They have tried Radical
ism, and it has deceived and betrayed
them. Now is the time for the Democra
cy to seize the helm.
Remains Discovered.
During and since the war, Corcoran's
Building, between Thirteenth and Four-1
teenth streets, Washington, was occupied
by the government as a medical museum,
where dissections were of frequent occur
rence. The building bad been used for
this purpose until nine months ago, when
the Museum was removed to Ford's The
atre. This week circumstances led to the
examination of the lot adjoining the first
named premises, when there were discov
ered a large number of hogsheads, which
had been sunk in the ground, filled with
the remains of !Inman bodies left there by
the students. The hogsheads were or
dered to be removed, and the cavities fill
ed with lime and otheryowerful _disinfec
tants. Since the discovery of these de
posits medical gentlemen attribute the
tinusuatuubealthiness and sickness in that
vicinity . to . the presence of these pits of
vitrifying substances...

country, and it seems probable that each
section will - produce, at the next - harvest,
enough grain to supply its own wants,
with something to spare.

We the delegates of the Democratic
party of Pe.nusyleania, in general State
Convention assembled, for the nomination
of a candidate for Judge of the Supreme
Court, profotindlygrateful to the Supreme
Ruler of the Universe for the return of
peace to our beloNted country, but deeply
anxious on account ,of the trials and de

the safety of our political institutions, and
the future yeace, liberty and prosperity of
the people, Resolve,
- That we steadfastly adhere to the
principles of -civil gove;nment establish
ed by the founders of the Union, and in
the present contliel, of legislative usurpa

wise, upright, and fearless judiciary the
great bulwark of public liberty and indi-
vidual right.
That the Union of the States is perpet•
nal, and the Federal government supreme
within its constitutional !links.
That representation in the Congress of
the United states and in the electoral
College is a right, fundamental and inde
structible in its nature, and abiding in ev
ery state, being a' duty as well as a right
pertaining to the people of every State,
and essential to ohr republican system of
government. Its denial is the destruction
of the government Itself.
Each state having, under the Constitu
tion, the exclusive right to prescribe the
qualifications of its own electors, we pro
claim as a us urpation and an outrage
the establishment of negro suffrage in any
of the States by the coercive exercise of
Federal power, and we shall resist to the
last resort, the threatened measures of the
leaders of the .republican party to inter
fere by acts of Congress with the regula
tion of the elective franchise in the State
of Pennsylvania.
We are opposed to any amendment of
the Constitution of the State giving to
negroes the right of suffrage.

'and their neglect of their profession in re
lation to the great industrial and financial
interests of the country.
That the radical majority in Congress,
and those who sustain them, have over
thrown the Constitution, dismembered
the Federal Union, and subverted our re
oblican form of government by a long
series of usurpations, among which are
the following : The denial of the right of
the. States of the Union to repiesentation
in. Congress; the treatment of ten States
as subjugated provinces, and governing
them by military force in time of peace; the
enactment of laws denying indemnity for
arrest and false imprisonment made with
ontuuthority of law; the resistance ofthe
anuority . of civil Leibunals, and their over
threw by the substitution of military corn
miisions for the trial of unclennea men
ses; their efforts to destroy the executive
and judicial departments of the govern
ment by threatened impeachment, to con
trol executive action, and a projected re
modeling of the Supreme Court of the
United States, to, force obedience to the
venal mandttes of Congress; ‘ the ejectment
from their teats in the Federal Senate and
House of Representatives of members du
ly and legily chosen; the purpose of con
fiscation wowed by the republican lea- ,
ders in violation of the declaration of '
rights and other guarantees of Federal
and State' constitutions, tending, as it
does, to cbstroy all protection to private
property, advancing them far on the high
road to repudiation.
That n strict conformity, both by Fed
oral and state governments, to all powers, ,
restrictions, and guarantees, as contained
in the Constitution of the United States;
a rigid and wise economy in the adminis
tration of public affairs, and the election
of capable, honest, and patriotic men to
office, are measures absolutely necessary
to restore
public confidence, avert nation
al bankruptcy, and to insure the perpetu
ity our free institutions.

" Self Evident Truths."
Major General Butler, in a letter to a
jollification black-and - white meeting in
Washington, over which a negro (John
T. Cook presided, among a good many
other wicked things, wrote as follows to
the colored gentlemen :
" Is it not a self-evident truth, where
the land is held in large tracts by the em
ployer, and to be tilled by the employed,
there can be no just and true field for the
exercise of republican citizenship ? And
it is one of the pressing exigencies of the
country, as the very basis reconstrnction,
the lands of the South may e iv] A

And is it not a self-evident truth, that a
man who holds about a'million dollars,—
and'it is said you do if not over—has
more than his share, and that so much
money should not be held in so large a
" tract ?" And, is it not just as self-evi
dent, 'that while land can be had in any
abundance, at from 10 eta. to 81,25 per
acre, (the very richest prairie land,) and a
homestead for nothing, that you and the
other holders of the two billion debt, to

any system be devised for the white work

plunder, is there not danger of also edu

Seven Thirties.
The New York Journal of Commerce
furnishes the following information to
holders of seven-thirties :
The holders of these notes maturing
Aug. 15, 1867, cannot, be compelled to
take. the five-twenties dated in 1865. The
promise is very explicit. They are con
vertible at maturity, at the option of the
holder,into a 6 per cent. bond redeema
ble after five years at the pleasure of the
, rovernment, and payable twenty years
from Aug. 15, 1867, bearing 6 per cent.,
semi-annual interest, payable in gold. No
other bond will answer the purposes of
such redemption, when the notes matnrc.
In our judgment such a bond should have
been prepared, and tendered to the hold
ers in advance; but this has not been
done. Those who have exchanged have
taken the bonds of July, 1865, while the
government andits agents have bought
freely of the notes, and sold-out the bonds
to cover as the fluctuations in the market
gave them opportunity. The holders of
the fit - :q - e'l; , is not legally bound to declare
his option , on the very day of maturity.
At ,Maturity, for all such Purpoges, means
ot and alter the day of maturity; and we
do not think the Secretary would quibble
about this interpretation.

the water rises continually over the - nap

yourself. Ah' what's the nsepf all that

place it in this shallow-pan, then stand the

place it over, the filter so that the edges
of the cloth dial lie in the mixture, and
all I have to do for amonth is to renew the
water in the pan every, day, when you
know the water which is daily put into

" But why do you have the Luther put

" Because the sir in a drauant is cool

the sides of the cloth being laid in the
