FIRST OF APRIL
This general settling day is dose at hand, and
we, with many others, must prepare to meet it.
Allpersons indebted to us, therefore, whether for
subscription, advertising or job printing, will
confer a special favor by paying up promptly
before the first of April, so that we may be ena
bled to pay the demands that will be made
We are thankful to those who have settled
their accounts during the winter. But there is
yet a large number in arrears ; and we now ap
peal to them not to let the first of April pass
without paying up. The paper we print upon
is still as exorbitant in price as it was two months
ago, with no prospect of any decline; and we
are obliged to pay cash for it, and all other arti
stes we coneume, on delivery. We must therefore
adhere to the cash system, or we cannot get along
in our busidess at all. While things remain as
they are, we shall have to demand advance pay
ments from all subscribers, and cash for adver
tising and job printing. When the times get
back into the old track again, we shall be glad
to relax this hard rule.
Our annual charter election will be held next
Friday, the 20th inst. A Mayor, Treasurer, &a.,
are to be chosen for two years, and the usual
Ward Officers for one year. The tickets nomi
nated by the two parties aro published among
our local news. Josnra S. Horan, Esq., the
Democratic Candidate for Mayor, is a gentleman
of unblemished character, and well qualified to
discharge the duties of that office. He was for
merly Clerk of the Court of Quarter Sessions of
Berks county, which position he filled with much
credit and fidelity. He is in every way worthy
of the hearty support of the Democratic voters
of the city. Judge Heressrsatien, our candidate
for City Treasurer, is an old merchant—formerly
an Associate Judge of this "county—and is es
teemed by all who know him. His capacity for
the office is admitted, and the personal popular
ity he deservedly enjoys, makes him just the man
to win. The Democratic candidates for Auditor,
Constables, Councils, and the Ward Offices gen
erally, are also, without exception, good men,
who will compare favorably with the opposing
candidates, and who deserve to poll every Demo
Rut, independent of the excellent material of
which the Democratic tickets are composed, there
are higher considerations involved in the coming
contest, which should induce every Democrat and
genuine friend of the Union to use his utmost
efforts for the success of the Democratic candi
dates. Reading is known all over the country
as the capital of old Democratic Berks—a county
that at the election in October last, recorded her
verdict of condemnation against the unconstitu
tional Abolition policy of the Administration, by
a majority of nearly 6,000 votes. That policy, by
the legislation..of the late Congress, has been
carried to the utmost extremity short of a com
plete overthrow of the Constitution, and if there
ever was a time when the people should speak
out against the dangerous encroachments of Ex
ecutive power, that time is now. A defeat of the
Democrats in the city of Reading at this time,
would be heralded far and wide by the hirelings
of the Administration, as are-action in Old Berke,
end an endorsement of its destructive policy.
This must not be. The masses of the people of
Reading are not Abolitionists, neither are they
in favor of destroying the last hope of saving the
Union by perverting the war for its restoration
into an anti-slavery crusade. Let all who love
the Union and the constitutional liberties of white
men better than they do the liberation of the
blacks of the South, turn out next Friday, and
prove their fidelity by voting the Democratic
candidates. In this way an easy victory will be
assured, and the heavy verdict of the county at
the October election, will be gloriously confirmed
by the city. Two years ago, the Democrats
elected their Mayor by a majority of over 600.
They can do it again, if they only stand together
amide their duty.
The Democratic State Central Committee of
Pennsylvania, some months since met in Read
ing and fixed the time for holding the next State
Convention at Harrisburg on the 17th of Jane,
to nominate a candidate for Governor and Judge
of the Supreme Court. Subsequently some of
the members of the Committee who were not in
attendance at Reading, requested the Chairman
t o eon the Committee together again for the
purpose of reconsidering the former action. The
Committee met on Saturday evening last, at the
Merchants' Hotel, in Philadelphia, twenty-seven
Members being present, and after a full discus—
sion of the subject and interchange of sentiment,
the motion to change the day was voted down_
The day originally fixednpon, therefore remains,
Which is Wednesday, the 17th of June. This
gives four months for the campaign, which in
the present unsettled condition of the country,
is ample time for a vigorous canvass. The
Democracy will go into the contest with a deter
mination to succeed, and their efforts will be
crowned with success.
SURVIVORS OF Tug 'REFORM CONVENTION OF
1837-38.—Iersassrma Rs-Unton.—On the 21st
of February, a meeting of the surviving mem
bers of the Convention which framed the amen
ded Constitution of Pennsylvania, which tom
menced its sittings at Harrisburg May 2, 1837,
and adjourned February 22, 1838, was held in
the Musical Fund Hall, Philadelphia. A quarter
of a century has passed sines that Convention
closed its labors. It contained 133 members.
Only 48 now survive. Hon. Joseph R. Chandler
was elected President of the late re-union, and
It was resolved to hold a re-union annually here
after. The delegates to the Convention from
Barks county, were John Ritter, George M. Reim,
William High, Mark Darrah and James Donegan ;
only one of whom (Dr. Donegan) is now living.
Rana are going back to their old value,
bid paper =ahem still hold on to high prices for
The Abolition leaders, seeing that the people
will not sustain them in their extreme unconsti
tutional measures, are endeavoring to cover up
their many misdeeds, and to draw away the pub
lic mind hem the contemplation of their real
designs in prosecuting the war, by getting up a
series of so called °Union" meetings, at which
the speakers are loud in sounding the war cry,
and profuse in their professions of unconditional
Unioniem. The better to deceive the people,
I they have bought the services of a few loose
Democrats, like Andy Johnson and
liendriek Wright, to give the color of no-par
tyism to the meetings, and to divide, if possible,
the Democratic organization, which, they but too
plainly see, is again closing up in a solid, united
phalanx, to save the country by driving from
power, by the lawful and eelletituticnci means
that are within their reach, the sectional par
tizans, who have so shamelessly abused their
most sacred trusts. We would caution all Dem
ocrats to beware how they become entangled in
this weak invention of their political enemies.
Let them judge them by their acts, and not by
their professions ; and they will' find that their
pretence of saving the Union is a mere cloak to
hide their assumption of arbitrary power, and
their thirst for war an appetite that springs from
the lust for private gain, and not from pure pa.
triotism. The men now in power are not the
true friends of the Union, or they would have
seeepted the Critteuden Compromise, which
would have saved the Union and averted civil
war; for the records of Congress prove that the
leaders of the rebellion—even Jeff. Davis himself
—declared that the South would accept it as a
measure of final pacification, if it was tendered
them, in good faith, by the Republicans. They
are not the true friends of the Union, or they
never would have adopted the revolutionary
dogma of Seward's "irrepressible conflict,"
which, contrary to the peaceful and prosperous
experience of seventy-five years, insisted that
"this Union could not exist half slave and half
free." They are not the true friends of the
Union, er they never would have tenoned the
Insane teachings of Garrison, who declared
that the Constitution of our fathers—of Washing
ton, of Jefferson, of Madison, of Franklin, and
their illustrious compatriots—was "a covenant
with Death and a league with Hell''--of Phillips,
who, in the city of Washington, under the very
nose of the President, boasted that " for thirty
years he had been a disunionist," and he rejoiced
that be had not labored in vain I—of Greeley,
who advocated separation for yearerbefore seces
sion took the damnable shape of treason and
civil war—of Thad. Stevens, who, in his seat in
Congress, boldly scouted the idea that they "had
any warrant in the Constitution" for their con
fiscation and emancipation schemes, and pro
claimed that "this Union never shall, with sty Con
sent, be restored under the Constitution as it is."
They are not the true friends of the Union, or
they would never allow the Government to be
robbed of millions by a horde of rascally con
tractors and agents, while the Treasury is daily
embarrassed for the means to pay the enormous
expenses of this protracted war. They are not
the true friends of the Union, or they would not
have divided public sentiment at the North—
whose people were united as one man in support
of the Constitution and in defence of the Flag,
when they were first assailed by armed rebellion
—by their attempt to force upon them the hate
ful and unconstitutional doctrines of Abolition
ism; by their arrest and persecution of loyal
Democrats for speaking out their honest senti
ments ; by their suspension of the habeas corpus,
the last safeguard of personal liberty ; by their
suppression of Democratic newspapers, and
incarceration of their editors in forts converted
into prisons; by their enforcement of martial
law in States undisturbed hy disloyalty or rebel
lion, and where the administration of the civil
authority was wholly unobstructed ; by the
substitution of the sectionalism of the Chicago
Platform for the nationality of the Constitution;
and by the deliberate violation of the solemn
oaths and pledges that they took on their acces
sion to power. Finally, they are not the true
friends of the Union, for by the whole current of
the legislation of the last Congress, they have
shown that the freedom of the negro is to them
dearer than the salvation of the Union, and that
they have resolved to prosecute the war for the
former, and let the latter take care of itself.
A war, to be justifiable and properly support
ed, must have a lawful object, and must be
prosecuted according to that policy which will
best promote its object. Now, the only legitimate
purpose of the present war, is the maintenance
of the Constitution, and through it, the restora-
tion of the Union. When Congress, at the extra
session of July, 1861, declared by a vote nearly
"That this war is not waged on their part in any
.writ of oppression, or for any purpose of conquest
or subjugation or purpose of overthrowing or utter•
feting with the rights or established institutions of
those States, but to defend and maintain the supre
macy of the Constitution, and to preserve the Union,
with all the dignity, equality, and rights of the sev
eral States unimpaired; and that as soon as these
objects are accomplished the war ought to cease,"—
They proclaimed the true and only lawful pur
pose of the war; and to:its prosecution for that
'purpose, the Democratic party vies and is unal.
terably pledged. But they have given no pledge,
and no earthly power can compel them, to sup
port a war which, by the pursuit of a policy
directly the reverse of that which would have
tended to the accomplishment of its single
purpose, has been diverted and perverted into a
war for the extermination of slavery. The Uni
ted States have no power, under the Constitution,
to wage such a war, and the Administration that
undertakes it, is as much a usurper and traitor,
as the rebel leaders themselves. When Demo
crats, therefore, are solicited to join in these I
falsely called "Union War Meetings," let them
inquire who are their instigators and chief man
agers, and judge from the character, antecedents,
and present political associations of the men,
whether they are genuine Unionists, or merely
Negro.worshippere ; upholders of the war for
the sole purpose of restoring the Union, or for
war " without a why or a wherefore," only so
that slavery is abolished. b'or a Union, these
men undoubtedly are. It is not, however, the
Union as our fathers made it, founded open an
equality of rights and interests, impartially pro
tected by the Constitution ; but a Union of force
and arbitrary power, held together by the strong
arm of a centralized, despotic government, and
built upon the ruins of the state rights which
are, ever have been and ever should be, inde
pendent of but not in conflict with the Federal
power ; and which alone can preserve the liber
ties of the people. To the creation of such a
Union, by the destruction of the Union as the
Constitution of 1787 made it, the Democratic
party, as the faithful conservator of the undying
principles of civil and religious freedom, and of
the individual rights of man, is and ever will be,
unalterably opposed. It will only yield obedi
ence to the tyranny that attempts to establish
such a usurpation, when all its powers of resist
ance shall have failed.
REPORTED UNION VICTORY ON THE YAZOO
RIVER.—The Cincinnati Gazette of yesterday
(13th) publishes a report from Memphis, that
Gen. Grant has captured Yazoo City, together
with 7,000 prisoners and eight transports. No
particulars are given.
The following highly complimentary notice of
our State Senator, is taken from the Harrisburg
correspondence of the Exton Sentinel, written
by the editor of that paper, D. H. Neiman, Esq.,
a member of the Legislature:
Since I last wrote you we have had some lively
times and animated discussions in both the Sen
and House. In the Senate on a preamble
nod resolutions tendering the use of the Senate
Chamber to those two archrdemagegues, Andy
Johnson, the Provisional Governor of Tennessee,
and Es-Governor Wright, of Indiana, for the
purpose of delivering political harangues. The
Democratic Senators offered an amendment ten
dering the same courtesy to Gen. McClellan.
This the abolitionists resisted, whereupon a dis
cussion arose, which lasted about sit hours. The
debate was most animated and the speeches
made on the Democratic side, by 'Messrs.
Clymer, Lumberton and Wallace, were most elo
quent, patriotic and thrilling, bringing forth
frequent spontaneous bursts of applausefrom
the crowded galleries. The speech of Senator
Clymer, of Berke, was particularly bold, master
ly and unanswerable. He held the large audi
ence:spell-bound for nearly an hour, and when
he. concluded he was surrounded by a host of
friends, who complimented him on his manly de
fense of the Democratic party, its principles and
policy. I could not do him justice by attempt
ing a synopsis of his remarks, therefore I will
send you a copy thereof as Boon as printed, for
publication, that your readers may have an op
portunity to read for themselves. In this connec
tion, it may not be out of place to say that Mr.
Clymer's course and position here are of such a
Character, that circumstances, aside from his
peculiar fitness for the position, make him a
prominent candidate for Gubernatorial honors,
Scarcely a day passes that we do not notice some
new strength, in the shape of Democratic papers,
coming to his support. Among the most recent
of these accessions is the Clinton County Demo
crat, Hon. H. L. Dieffenbach, from the last num
ber of which we take the following :
" NEXT GOVERNOR.-11 is a proper thing that
Berke county should furnish the next Democratic
candidate for Governor. Berks has a sturdy pa
triotic history that no other county can equal.
Any son of her's elected Governor of the State
would be literally under bonds, with the best of
security, to discharge his duties well. she pre
sents MESTER CLrotea, who represents the best
blood of '76—the descendants of both the Mes
tere and Clymers of the old Revolution. The
State, in these troublesome times, needs an able,
firm man, or undoubted and unquestionable in
tegrity, and a thorough Democrat, for Governor.
Clymer has all these qualifications * and therefore
we hope he may be nominated."
The Granite State has gone against the Ad—
ministration, notwithstanding the strenuous
efforts that were made to carry it. Ira A. East
man, the Democratic candidate for Governor,
has a plurality of nearly 3,500 over Joseph E.
Gilmore, Abolitionist, and if he has failed of an
election by the people, it is only because some
4,300 votes were thrown away upon Col. Walter
Harriman, a so•ealled t. War Democrat." For
Congress, Daniel Marcy, Democrat, is certainly
elected in the Ist District, which is a gain, and
the vote is so close it. the 24, that the official
count is required to decide.. The 3d District
elects an Abolitionist. Well d me, New• Ham
pshire! The great reaction is "marching along."
INTERESTING LEGAL OPINION.—At a recent term
of the Court of Montgomery county, in the case
of Breitenbach vs. Bush, Judge Chapman deold.
ed that the law staying civil process against
soldiers was unconstitutional. The case was
carried to the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania,
and on Thursday last, at Philadelphia, an opinion
VMS given revel-Sing the decision of the Court of
Montgomery county, thereby affirming the con—
stitutionality of the law. The stay law was en
acted on the 18th day of April, 1881. The 4th
Section, the constitutionality of which was in
question, reads as follows
•• No civil process shall issue or be entered
against any person mustered into the service of
this State or of the United States, during the
term for which he shall be engaged. in snob ser—
vice, nor until thirty days after he shall have
been discharged therefrom : ProvAled, that the
operation of all statutes of limitation shall be
suspended upon all claims against Such persons
during such term."
THE CULTITIM oa TOBACCO.—We shall publish,
in neat week's Gazette, a "Prize Beatty on the
Culture and Management of Tobacco," by W. W.
Bowie, Eeq., of Prince Goof* county, Md., for
which a prizeof silver plate of the value of 530,
was awarded by the publishes , of the American
Farmer, several years as. It contains, in aeon—
densed form, a vast amount of valuable practical
information in relation to the raising of Tobacco ;
and as a number of the farmers of Berke county
have lately entered somewhat largely into the cul
ture of that plant, the Essay will doubtless be as
acceptable as any thing we e could print at the
TERRIBLE RIOTS IN RETROIT.—A serious riot
occurred in Detroit last Friday, begun by an ex
cited mob who attempted to seize a negro who
was being taken from Court to jail, after a con
viction of an infamous outrage upon a white girl.
The mob was driven off, but afterward made a
furious assault upon all the colored people in the
city, burning their- houses and killing 10 or 15
persons. The riot was finally suppressed by
military force, but it is liable to break out at any
moment. There were 32 houses destroyed and
200 negroes deprived of . .their homes.
