No pen-Genii the citizens of our common country are
more devoted to the support and maintenance, in all their
vigor and Integrity, of the Constitution and the laws, than
the Democracy of Berke—they do not now nor have they
at any time for a moment contemplated any act in deroga
tion of either; condone of the purity of their motives
and moral certitude of their conduct, they have for some
time reit alarm at the (mummy and boldness with which
both their Moillee and Conduct have boon emailed. Still.
they were willing patiently to bear them. foul aspersions
became until very recently they suffered only in common
With their fellow-citizens entertaining similar political
sentiments, in other counties and in other Staten. This
privilege has now been denied them ; information has
been lodged, founded on mere rumor, which has ended in

tofore. have never been called in question ; ee.l GAs hag

the whole body of the Democratic citizens of Serbs, crimes
which if true would render them unworthy of citizenship
in a free country. These charges have beenspread far and

P. S.—The Members of the Standing Committee are re

of said day.
sir OUR CORRESPORMINT X has sent us a re

RATIONAL CONVENTION.—The Report of the
minority of the Committee on Fe(lerol Iteietione,
of the State Senate, on the petitions of citizens
of Pennsylvania for a National Convention of
the States as a means of peace and redtoration of
the Union, will be found on the fourth page of
this week's paper_ It was in typo for insert ion
last week, but crowded out by a press of other
matter that could not be deferred.
The call for a General Mass Meeting of the
Democrats of Barks county, will be found at the
head of this column. Its object is sufficiently
explained in the letter to the Chairman of the
Standing Committee, requesting him to make the
tell. The eventS which have ooeurred within
the last fortnight in this county, and the high
handed attempts which have been made to affix
the brand of treason upon a people who have
never yet faltered in their obedience to the Con
atitution and Laws, and to overawe them from
the peaceful exercise of their rights as freemen,
render such a meeting at this time not only prop
er but necessary, for the purpose of vindicating
their reputation from the foul and false asper
sions which partizan malignity has east upon
them, and taking measures of self-protection
against any interference with their rights and
privileges as citizens of a free country, by the
threats, intimidations and open violence of law
less mobs. We hope to see this meeting fully
attended, as it doubtless will be, and that the
Democracy of Berks will speak out freely and
feesleaely es Memos a people who acknowledge
no master but the Constitution and laws of their

GOV. CURTIN WITHDRAWS.
Governor Curtin has adopted the famous opin
ion of honest dock Falstaff, that "the better
part of valor is discretion," In a message I o the
Legislature, on the day of their adjournment, be
announces his determination to withdraw from
the canvass for a re-nomination for Governor.
Failing health, and the offer by the President of
"% high position at th& expiration of his present
term of offioe," are the reasons assigned for his
withdrawal. We think ho has noted wisely, for
the prospect of two successive, and, as they are
sure to be, fierce and exciting conflicts—first, for
the nomination, and afteriard, before the peo
ple, for the office, with extreme doubt as to the
result in either case, might well appal a man of
stronger nerves and more robust fhysical con
dition than the Governor now possesses. Those
who have seen him lately, will certify to the fact
of hie shattered health, and commend the pru
dence of hie choice to consult personal comfort
in preference to political ambition. But, it. is
singular that the President should offer him the
high position alluded to, so long a time in ad
vance. We do not think another instance can be
found of record, in which an officer of the Fed
eral Government, has been appointed eight mesas
before ho was expected w enter upon his duties.
If it were proper to regard such a matter in any
other than a serious light, we would be disposed
to set it down as one of the sly jokes for which
the President is chiefly distinguished. It has
vary mutt the appearance of the bargains that ,
are sometimes made by parents with their re
fractory sons—he offer of a tempting reward in
future upon condition of good behaviour in the
interval. The only hold the Administration now
has upon Pennsylvania, is through her Governor.
The Legislature, the other State officers, and a
majority of the people, are opposed to it. But
Pennsylvania is too important a State to lose in
carrying out the Abolition programm& That
must ho sustained, Union or no Union; the Con
scriplion Law must be enforced; the "Copper
heads " must be taught submission; their impu
dent claim to the rights of free Speech, free dis
cession, and a free press, must be put down;
(he absolute authority of the Administration to
set aside Constitution, law and State sovereignty,
and to do whatsoever it pleases, under "the War
Power," must he maintained; and Abolition rule
must he perpetuated, if need be, at the point of
the bayonet. Governor Curtin is• the man who
must assist in this work, so far as it is to be
done in Pennsylvania: and therefore the Presi
dent tells him to stay where he is, and, to secure
his fealty to his masters—for the Governor has
not been, heretofore, ono of the most willing
tools of the Administration—holds out to him
the reward ho seeks, to be conferred elf ter hie
work is done. In this light, and we can view it
in no other, the tender of office to Governor
Curtin, is by no means a compliment, but the
mereporchare of support. However, the bargain
has been struck, and from this date forward, we
may expect to see the Administration policy rig
idly enforced in Pennsylvania, so far as her Gov
ernor has power to enforce it, Wo have no more
to say, except to inform our readers that the
"high position" which has been tendered to
Governor Curtin is understood to be the Mission
HON. HIESTER CLYMER.
The prospects of the nomination of this gen—
tleman as the Democratic candidate for Governor,
are every day brightening. Ms manly, fearless
and at the same time traly constitutional and
patriotic course in the State Senate during the
session just closed, has won him hosts of friends
throughout the Commonwealth, who will work
zealously to make him the leader of the party in
the approaching canvass. In addition to the
counties that have already elected delegates fer
him, we are gratified to publish the following
recent demonstrations in his favor from stroog
THIRTEENTH SENATORIAL DISTRICT.—The De
mocratic Senatorial conferees of the 18th district,
composed of the counties of Snyder, Montour,
Northumberland and Columbia, met at Northum
berland and elected Isaac Raker Senatorial Del
egate to the Democratic State Convention, with
instructions to vote for Dtwernn CLYMER fie the
nominee of the Democratic party for Governor.
PERRY County—The Democratic Convention
of Perry county met at Bloomfield on Monday,
the 13th, and elected Henry D. golf Represen—
tative delegate to the 11th of June Democratic
State c onvention, unanimously itietructing him
to vote for the nomination of RIMER CLYMKa
as the candidate of tho Democratic party for
These instructions are an index of the rising
popularity of Mr. CIiTMEM, and will encourage
his Meads at home to more active efforts in fa
vor of his nomination. An abler or purer man,
or one who unites within himself more of the
elements!, of political strength, cannot he chosen.
And this, we believe, is beginning to be the pre
vailing opinion of the Democracy of the State at
The Adler, our old German organ, in its issue
of the ith inst., published Mr. GLIIIIIe3 late
speech in the Senate on national affairs, accom
panied with the following remarks, which it af
fords us pleasure to heartily endorse:
" This speech exhibits Mr. Clymer in the light
of both a fearless and a talented and eloquent
man, and therefore it is deserving of tho atten
tion of the people as if will undoubtedly obtain
the appreciation of his more immediate constit
uents in Berke county. There is in it a determ -
ined and firm language, which bears evidence of
settled views and opinions, and of the courage to
set them forth at the right place and at the right
"We cannot allow this occasion to pass by,
without acknowledging at this place our high
satisfaction at tht- excellent lad dignified alti—
tude of Senator Clymer during the whole presen
session. Always at his post, with vigilant eye
watching and guarding the interests of his Coun
ty and of the State generally, he suffered no op
portunity to pass for advocating, and as far as
was possible, for bringing the principles of De
mocracy to bear on all the general acts before
the Senate. He has made thereby naturally
hosts of friends in all parts of the State.
"Derks county has every reason to be proud
of this, her son, and may justly expect, that he,
recommended as he was by Lite Demoeraey of the
county in their late Convention as a candidate
for Governor, will receive the fullest regard in
the June Convention at the hands also of the
Democracy of the State. There is scarcely any
doubt whatever,:that with Mester Clymer as the
candidate for Governor, the most splendid oleo_
lioncampaign can and will be fought through
with the surest success by the Democracy in the
coming fall election."
TIM NINs IVIONTIIB' MEL—The main object of
the recent visit of Uovernor Curtin to the army
of the Potomac, we are informed, was for the
purpose of promoting the success of the re-enlist
ment of those whew terms will expire in a few
weeks, In this, the information is, that ho has
been highly successful ; arid- it is believed that at
least two-thirds of the nine mouths' men will
re enlist, after they have had a month's leisure
and recreation at home. All who re enlist will
receive the full bounties, and their number will
go to make up oar quota of the new call that
will be made under the Conscript law.—Philadel
NEW COUNTERREIT.—The following new and
dangerous counterfeit on the notes of a flank

The most cheering news we can present to our
readers this week, after the reverses that our
gallant forces have encountered within the last
ten (lays, are the late returns of olooliOns in va•
rious States and districts.
Milwaukee city and county have given nearly
G,OOO Democratic majority, electing nearly all
the Democratic nominees for the municipal offi
ces. La Demme, Kenosha, and other large towns,
hitherto generally Abolition, have gone the twee
way; and it is believed that the Democratic can
didate for Supreme Judge in the State at large,
(Wisconsin) is elactea.
Detroit., Michigan, gives 700 Democratic ma
jority, and the State at large Dhows great Demo
St. Paul, Minnesota, has gone Democratic,
under very discouraging circumstances.
Ohio, *ith the exception of Cincinnati, Clove
land and a few other places, has made a clean
Democratic sweep, carrying the State by a ma
jority estimated at 25,000 to 20,000—more than
three times as large as it was last fall.
The Democrats have carried Trenton, N. J.,
by a majority of about 400. Franklin S. Mills
is re elected Mayor by a handsome majority, and
the Democrats have carried five of the six wards,
electing their whole city ticket and making a
In Connecticut the Democrats have carried
Hartford by 400 majority—a gain of nearly 100
since the general eleotion,—electing fourteen
Councilmen anti three Altiernten, to lon Abolition
Councilmen and two Aldermen. For one Alderman
t here:is a tie. The city of New Haven has been car
riwij by the Democrats by 130 more majority than
Seymour received for Governor. The State is
to day Democratic.
The Charter election in Albany, New York, on
Tuesday, terminated gloriously for the Democ
racy. The Argus says the victory is unexampled
in their history. The Democrats elected ten of
the eleven Aldermen and eight of ten Supervi
sors--every ward but the 4th being Democratic,
and the Abolition majority in that ward'being
small. There were upwards of 8,000 votes
polled, awl the average Democratic majority was
tO. So we go. Depend., upon it " there's
a good time coming_"
The State Legislature adjourned finally on
Wednesday at noon. The General Appropriation
bill, and all the necessary measures for keeping
the machinery of our State Government in run
ning order for the next nine months, were per
fected and passed previous to the close of the
session, so that there is no likelihood of a special
meeting of the Legislature during the summer.
According to custom, on the last day of the
session, the Speaker of the Senate, Mr. LAW
RENON, resigned the Chair, and the Hon. JOHN
P. PENNEY, (Rep.) of Allegheny county, was
elected Speaker for the recess. The Demetfratio
Senators voted for the Hon. Ilicevan CLVIS/ ail, of
Berks. Mr. Penney had 19 votes, and Mr. Cly•
um 13. The latter received thd compliment of
a unanimous nomination by the Democratic eau-

THE lIAAR/SBURO CHILD•MURDER.—Our read
ers will doubtless remember the case of a little
girl named Mary Elizabeth German, of Harris
burg, who was decoyed from her home on the
night of the 3d of October last, and brutally
murdered by some fiend hi human shape, who,
notwithstanding the most diligent search was
made for him, under the incentive of the offer of
large rewards, escaped detection for the time.
We now learn that the old adage, "murder will
out," seems about to be verified by the diseoveryof
the murderer of this poor child. The Harrisburg
Patriot t - Union of Thursday, says:
"Some days ago Mrs. Weitzel of this city, ac
companied by Mr. Emanuel German and officer
Fleck, went to Dayton, Ohio, to examine an
alleged murderer confined in the prison there,
supposed to be the fiend that outraged and mur
dered little Nary Elizabeth German in the month
of October last. The District Attorney has in-
formation from officer Fleck to the effect that the
witness, Mrs. Weitzel, at once identified the
prisoner as the individual in whose company she
had seen the deceased on the evening prior to
the murder. What revelations, if any, the prix•
oner made in regard.to that horrible tragedy, is
not stated, and we must await allicer Fleck's re
turn for further developments. It will'he a re—
lief to our whole community to know that the
perpetrator of fire meat fiendish outrage on record
has at last been detected. Should he escape
conviction on the charge for which be was ar
rested at Dayton, he will be brought hero for

of the large sum of ten thousand and ninety-six dollars.
The money had been drawn from Beak during the day, by
Mr. Samuel J. Potts, the Clerk, with the intention of re

was placed in the money-drawer of the safe before the office
WAN closed at night. d Watchman is employed In the
Freight Station, but he was temporarily absent a part of
Monday night, on other duty. It is supposed that the
thief or thieves enured the premises and abstracted the
mono,' during this absence. Although bat two keys were
known to be in exhtenee, and both wore In the posseegion
of Mr. Potts, the safe mud have boon opened with a key,
for in the morning it was timed to be looked as usual, and
the lock was not broken, but the money package woe min-

about the depot on Monday evening, and the pollee are on
the alert for them. They are said to lambent Philadel

The Inquest, before conchulleg, would suggest, that some
regular arrangement should be made for religious inetruc

are old and young, male and female. Children are growing
up, who have a right to the teachings of Christianity ; the
aged are passing away who have a right to its hopes and
consolations. Many of these bare men better drys, they
have had respectable positions in life, have been members
of our various ohurchee, have enjoyed the comforts of
home, and have had their children growing up around
them. The supply of their physical wants in not our only
duty. In the main building there is a ball fitted up for
religious service and large enough to accommodate the In
mates of the Institution. Ike believe that the clergymen
of the city of Reading and neighborhood would, if a eye
tematic arrangement were made, officiate by turas, so that
retlgione worship in English and German could be secured
every Sunday afternoon. The Inquest return their ac

The great event of last Sunday, was the dedication o
the new Organ at St. John's, (Rev. Mr. Kw odig'c) Lath
eras Church. S
It le really a noble instrument, possessing great power,
extent and variety; perfect In egnality of tone, and rich
ness of combination. A large congregation was rapt in
admiration an its dulcet notes rolled through the sacred
edifice in solemn grandeur.
The angregation may be proud of the instrument, as it
Is by far the best in Reading or the county, reflecting great
honor on the congregation, who. with the aid of a liberal
public, furnished the moans of procuring It.
John Enditch, Ebq presided at the Organ, and played
in a masterly manner, exhibiting the instrument to every
possible advantage. This distinguished gentleman has
long ranked among the beet amateurs in this city, and
durfng his Consulship at Basle, he studied music with the
fathers of the divine art." His playing on the occa
sion referred to, was truly eloquent, and I was proud that
we poseeesed so talented a performer.
The car . olir wore sublimely sung by the choir and con
gregation, and the effect was unappeased.
Among the best sacred compositions in the Lutheran
Church, are the productions or Martin Luther, who was
distinguished for his lankiest acquirements.
