SAYS a Southern .journal before us: ""The
negroes are - somewhat tired of politk4, and
with starvation staring them in the face, are
more disposed to consider their pecuniary'
condition than their political." We alluded,
on Saturday, to the situation of the South
ern canvass. The paragraph now quoted is
very significant, in that connection.
WE TIMIST that the Commissioner of Rey
enue, in the discharge of his official Anti*
will enter into no collateral and eitra-officiid
compromises, or "arrangements," with other
pilicialf4 ai Washington. Whateyer poweis
'Congress may have conferred upon him,
let him exercise them faithfully, and he will
then be acquitted of his responsibilities. If
his action be inmedell or rendered nugatory
by any unlawffil oppo'sition, whether from
Secretary or President, the country knows
how to hold them to a proper accountability.
WAR Sairmoun's "friends" fol
lowed the sentiments of his speech to their
logical issue, by the breaking out of the
drati-riots, burning an orphan asylum, hang
ing Federal officers to lamp posts &c., he
found it necessary to appear to do some
thing to quell the storm he had raised, by
declaring the city in a state of insurrection,
and all parties sustained him. Why then
shoulfighe Saz3foun Democracy complain ,
- if districts in the South, where. Union men
are being assassinated by dozens, are also
declared to be in a state of insurrection? Is
this any more in derogation of "the popular
will" than it was at New York?
,TWE BERET. DEMOCRATS, whet attended
the New York Convention, as delegates were
delighted with the cordial reception they
received at the hands of their Copperhead
brethren of the north. ' On-their return to
their constituents they spoke of this in the
most enthusiastic terms, and boasted, truth
fully no doubt, that they were allowed to
3aave everything their own way, to dictate
the terms of the platform, and name the
man for the second place on the ticket.
Moreover, they were greatly flattered by the
marked attentions that were paid them,,es
pecially the rebel generals, such as Hemp-
TON, FORREST, PRESTON, EARLY and oth

of Fire-eater and Doughface, and no wonder
they felt hopeful and happy.

WE HAVE at last an authorized exposition
of the meaning of - the word "Copperhead",
.from Democratic authority no_less
kuished than the lion. G. 11. PENDLETON,
Whose, remarks in response to a public re
ception given to him at Boston a few even
ings aince,,were commenced as follows:
' "stv Ft:GLOW-CITIZENS— A. Toloc — "D — d old Cop

means. (Cries of '.Good." sad c heers.) it taus
that Dentoerath c party st o , _save ; liberty to
Hits eountrN if it is saved at all. (Cheers.)
Remembering that the liberty which the
Copperheads, thus defined, would save, is
the liberty of Secession a:cd Revolution for
the sole purpose of upholding or of restoring
Human Slavery, the liberty of Repudiation,
for the purpose of destroying the public
credit and the national honor, the liberty of
undoing all that a free and freedom-loving
people have done toward establishing the
Personal Liberty and Freedom of all men
on "the continent—the definition is a good
one, and precisely' such as one would ex
pect from a "Son of Liberty," a: K. G. C.
or aK.K. K. Let the next edition of Web

THERE i 5 just now an unusual gathering
of distinguished ex-rebel Generals, includ
ing Lee, and of civilians, at-the Virginia
Springs. General Rosecrans is also there,
and an impression prevails that the meeting
has been arranged to discuss matters of im
portance. So far as this conference, may
have political designs, and relate to the
"pacification" of the South, the country
has no objection to any political meeting
for 'any lawful purpose. But the only
"pacification" which is . needed at the South:
is that all parties and all 'pluses shall loyally
submit themselves to the Constitution and
laws of the land. Nothing more is desired,
and nothing less will satisfy the loy_al peo
ple everywhere. Such a recommenda
tion comes well from any body of citizens;
any other advice, especially when emanating
from these gentlemen, will have no weight
whatever. The pacification of the entire
country can and will be accomplished, in the
due course of time, by the 'legislative and
political powers of -the nation, when faith
fully seconded by a ccimpetent and honest
Exequtive—all which the people are now
taking steps to secnre.
A SOLDIER, who has once bared his bo
som to the bullet of the traitor, braved all
dangers, undergone the fatigues , and tor
tures of war, withstood the hardships of
campaigning, and perilled his own life that
his country might live, cannot now join
hands with the same enemy who confronted
him. And yet Democratic orators haye the ,
assurance to invite them to desert their old
principles, their old comrades, their camps
and their flag, to enlist_under the banner of
treason and revolution. It would be a sad
commentary on the character of the Ameri
can soldier to say that he fought in rgribr
ance of the principles for which he was
fOting, and nothing more charitable can
be said of the soldier, who now, in the hour
of, peace and victory, goes over to the ene
my. There will be no such desertion. The
Democrats count without their host' in ad
.dressing their sugar-coated, treasonable
gurnents to our gallant soldier-citizens, and
they are welcome to all the loyal-hearted
heroes Whom they can convince thaethe
war against the rebellion was an outrage com
mitted in the name of Right and Justice
,against the Southern rebels. '
Has a wiqui' max in Pennsylvania_the
same political rights as in - the Carolinas'
Ought the latter to have a greater share
than the former in the Congxessional repro
sentation ? The old system of representa
tion, ahich the Democracy desire to re.
store, gave to the former two and a half
times more of Congressional representation
than to the white men of the North. Upon
a basis taking one hundred thousand popu
lation as the ratio of representation, forty
thousand whites, owning one hundred thon
sand negro slaves in the Gulf States, were
entitled to a member of Congress, while
one hundre# ,thousand white citizens of a
Northern State could have no more. The
Southerner voted for himself and his slaves
too, but the Northerners voted every man
fur themselves, Which was the most Dem
ocratic ? What sort of Democracy is it which
opposes the removal of this inequality? `lt
is the De.nocracy of iciantotra. Blain and
the New York Con . vention. They demand
that the negroes shall not vote, but that
they shall be counted in and let their late
masters vote for them. For that purpose,
they oppose the XlVth amendment and talk
of nullifying the Constitution in that par
ticular, and the laws of Congress made in
accordance therewith. Remember that the
Charleston Mercury —good Democratic au
thority—declares that "if the Democratic
party: succeeds in the Presidential election,'
the ratification of the amendment (the four
teenth article of the :United States Constitu
tion) will doubtless be treated as a-gigan
tic fraud, and, therefore, void." If that
party succeeds, they will restore the old
rebel. State governments and every Demo
wide member of Congress will vote full
payment for the slaves. Fellow-citizens, are
you ready for the question?

A BRILLIANT 'OVATION
CARL. Schultz, the gifted and patriotic
representative of the German'element of our
tation, was welcomed into Allegheny
county last night by one of the largept_and
most brilliant civil ovationsf ever extended
to any- public or private citizen in this city.
The people turned out in their full might tot
do him, honor ; to make him feel that hip
manly efforts in the cause of Universal Lib•
erty arc keenly appreciated by the loyal and
patriotic. We felt proud of our German
fellow citizens as we looked on the vast
multitude assembled at City Hall last
night, eagerly listening to the - Miming elo
quence, poured forth in all the beauty,of
the language of the Fatherland, from the
lips of one who has attested his sincerity
by sacrifice at the altar of Freedom. They
stand now where they have stood either in
trial or triumph—cemented together and
arrayed as a solid mass to crush the enemies
of their country. They fear not to do right,
and it would be as easy to swing a moun
. from its base as to swerve them from
principles founded on Truth, Right and

Simpkins sold a lot of property of sundry
kinds to Toinpkins; for the amount of
which he took Tompkins' bond, which was
run a series of years, the interest to be
paid semi-annually. Tompkins paid his in
terest punctually several times in cash, as
he had agreed to do; but finally he took it
into his head that he was expending too
much money in that way, and that it would
be much easier to draw his own promissory
note, payable, without interest, at some in
definite future period, and give that, each
time,to Simpkins, in payment of the interest,
and when the bond should mature, it was
his intention to pay it off in the same way.
in this way, like an honest man, as he flat
tered himself he was, he would pay off the
debt the moment it became due, and then
he would be all right. As the promissory
notes bore no interest, and as no time was
fixed when they should become due and
payable, they would i give him no trouble.
As for Simpkins, wh'y shoidd he trouble him
self about him ? He was only a "bloated
bondholder," and he was resolved that he
should have nothing but these notes, and
he might do with them what he pleased.
He could not collect them anyhow, but he
might trade them off, if he saw proper, for
what they would bring. Anybody who
Might getihold of them could say with truth
that Tompkins •owttl lurn so much money,
and if he had business with Tompkins ho
could get credit for that amount.

THE BONDS AND WHAT WE GOT
We quote tic annexed paragraph from
the eloquent and powerful speech made by
Boni B. B.- Carnahan, at Steubenville,
on Saturday last :
It is said that full value was not paid for
these bonds? What was given was ac
cepted as full value, and in factlthose sold
in 1861 and In 1862 were purchased with
coin or its equivalent; The war actually
began in April, 1861. Until February,
1862, the paper currency was at par with
gold. From that period until July, 1862,
the premium on gold ranged from one to,flve
per cent: From 1801 to January 1863,
the average premitith was 29 per cent., but
prices had not yet become Inflated, and the
paper currency was practically the equiva
lent of coin.
During these twenty-one months of the
war a large portion of the bonds we're sold,
including.the $250,000,000 authorized by the
act of 16th ofJuly, 1861, and the $500,000,000
5-20's of February 25th, 1862. All of these
were paid for in gold or its practical equiva
lent. In 1863 the average premium of gold
was 48} oer cent. and in 1861-102.4: Of
course the loss in discounts to the goverm.
ment was very great, or rat er the loss of
the citizen was great. B the act of Con
gress of March 3rd, 1864, authorizing the
,of $200,000,000 of b nds, called the
10.405, specifically proviths for their pay
ment in coin. You will bserve that the
bonds issued when the " eenbacks" were
at the lowest figure, are expressly made
payable in coin. Does ni t this show that
the United States inter ded to preclude
any doubt as to how and in what
currency the bonds shoul be paid ?
AN EXTRAORDINARY ! .EROLITE.
The Nashville Press states that the enor
mous meteoric body, which: fell a fow days
since near Cheathan's , Cross Roads in Ten
nessee, and buried itself deep in the earth,
has been partially 'uncovered, and will, as
soon as it Is sufficiently cooled, be taken
up for preservation. The account given in
the Press is evidently reliable, and affords
an authentic description of what is perhaps
the largest and most remarkable terolite ever
known. We quote from the description in
that journal as follows:
"When we reached a depth of about
twi nty feet we came to the mrolite, or mass
of metal, still hot and covered outside with
a slight film or coating of oxide. It Is
wedge-shaped, the heavy end being up
ward. We cannot account for this except
on the supposition that it was globular as it
descended, but the contact with so dense a
body as a mass of limestone, while in a
soft condition, pushed backwards the mass
as it passed through and gave it the cone
shape which it has. The terolite we found
to measure about seven feet from the apex
to base, and at the greatest circumference
about ten rem round. It is specifically very
heavy, and the lump cannot weigh less than
five or six tons.

Ithaca, N. Y., and Sawanee, Tenn. Chairs
for the same sort of instruction have been
endowed in the University of Pennsylvania
and in Lehigh University. •
We see here the beginnings of what may,
within another generation, prove to be a
leading branch of popular instructiOn.' The
important, influence which Technical and
Scientific knowledge are destined to exer-
cise, in relatidn to the material interests of
the American people, we have heretofore
' endeavored to speak of. The statistics given
above show that this importance has been,
and is increasingly, appreciated by thought

For an example of the mode in which the
Southern Democracy occasionally vary
their occupation in shooting "Radical nig
gers,", by trying to coax thein to become
"colored Democrats," we submit the an
nexed catechism, which has been prepared
for the use of the Virginia freedmen by the
Richmond Whig, one of the leading Demo
cratic rebel journals of the Sonth. It
covers the whole ground, with more than
usual fidelity to the truth, and makes very
fair reading for the Democrats hereabouts,
who believe in "a white man's govern
ment." The Whig asks:

WORK: WORK!: WORK!!!
Our friends must go to work and keep at
work, and then their work will be done in
the right way and with the right results.
The following suggestions deserve- the at
tention of every Republican:
1. Form a Grant Club at once in every
township, with an independent working
organization in each election district.
2. Get the name of every Grant and Col
fax voter In that district, and have him a
member of the Club, if possible.
3. Next, record the name of every other
voter in said district, with every one entitled
to become or to be mails a voter before
4. See that every one who will read Re
publican papers is provided with at least
one good one.
5. Make arrangements that, Will render
the polling of an illegal vote in that district
6. Take care that—no matter what may
be the weather—every Grant voter in that
district shall be at the polla before noon of
election day, and shall vote as early as may
be. . .
7. Look out for the undecided oL waver=
ing, that they vote for us so far as may be.

THE PEOPLE'S GUIDE.
The Boston Poet, which abuses Gen.
Grum; heartily now, spoke otherwise of
him on the 27th of July, 1867. It then said :
"It will not be simply a National Con
vention that will control General Grant's
nomination, but the national voice. If that
demand his nomination, it will be made, and
his election rendered certain, independent of
all Republican committees. The people—
tired of the ultraisms, vacillations, intrigues
of hackneyed, unprincipled partisans--Inay
seek a guide w pioneer them out of the wilder
ness of civil anarchy, who is untainted with
the complications, corruptions and hypocri
sies of the leaders of the Radicals, and give
him the highest civil power." ---
STONEBORO, Pa., August 24, 1868.
DEAR GAZETTE : Hav inb, With my fam
ily spent several days at this new candidate
for summer visitation, I feel qualified from
personal experience to speak •advisedly- of .
its claims or=rather to enumerate some of
its characteristics and leave your readers to
judge for themielves of its claims to favor.
Stoneboro is a very small village, compris
ing the "Lake House," a new and commo
dious hotel two stories high, with two rec
tangular wings, spacious piazzas on the
east and north sides, also an extensive bal
cony athwart the north front towards the
lake. The lower story is divided into hall,
gents and ladies' parlors, office, barber
shop, reading room, saloon, billiard rooms,
bowling alleys, dining room, kitchen, &c.
The second story is divided by. halls with
sleeping rooms on either side, extending
through the entire floor. In the attic
tice ball room, bath rooms, ece:.
The hotel i s the chief feature of the village.
Contiguous to it is the Station House, with
its appurtenances of waiting rooms, ticket,
telegraph and postoilice; spacious platform,
with board walks, extending to the hotel.
There are large and smaller buildings, com
prising an extensive saw mill, plaining
mill and shingle. mill. Al - so a rickety old
school - house or shooting gallery for the
young - idea, in which, on Sundays, a very
intelligent and pious miner, or some stray
ordained minister, occasionally preaches.
Off to the east from the hotel, some two hun
dred yards, a beautiful grove of grand old
sugar trees have escaped the axe of the Van
dals. Embowered and half concealed
among these trees are the charming resi
dences of Col. Blood, Mr. Haines and one or
two other gentleman, officers of the railroad
company, 1 believe.
, About a like distance from the hotel, to
the south, is to be found the flourishing
country store of Mr, Bonner, with some
half dozen cozy dwellings, and a short dis
tance further out, on the adjacent hill, are
forty or more neat frame houses of one and
a half stories, all painted brown, occupied.
by the employees of the extensive Coal Min
ing Compsny, whose works are in the im
mediate vicinity. This is about the extent
of the village, destined hereafter, we doubt
not, to compete in business and population
with Mercer, its present metropolis and
elder sister. .
Hardby the village, on the north side, lies
the chief natural attraction of this resort, the
beautiful and placid "Sandy Lake," cover
ing about a square mile of surface, fed
chiefly from springs, of cerulean clear
ness and great depth. This lake
has heretofore yielded large quantities
of the finest fish, but recently, owing to a
temporary cause, about to be removed, has
not rewarded the diligence of the Izaak
Walton's who have sought in its deep re
cesses for the finney piey. The proprietors
of the Lake House have erected a spacious
secure platform extending from the shore
out to the deeper waters, from which visi
tors daily take their departure to the oppo
site shores of this miniature Mediterranean,
in sailing yacht, row boat or skiff, of which
the number and variety is ample. This, it'
appears to me, is a delightful pastime, espe
' cially for invalids; the lake is fringed on
three fourths of its shores by the grand old
primative forests now in their most umbra
geous garnature of leaf and branch, so that
with the village on, the one side and the for
est and jungle on the other, the visitor can
easily imagine himself on the very borders
of civilization, with only a little sheet of
water to separate the palace from the wig
The Lake House makes no pretensions to
the gorgeous magnificence and style of the
"Clarendon" or "Congress Hall," at Sara
toga, but it is well kept and the table and
beds are quite equal to those of the great
resorts on the Jersey coast. Major S. T.
Kennedy:, _the host, is a good fellow; I
hope, if.J.= shall visit other,resorts, I may
find his equal. I shall long remember the
thoughtful and habitual kindness of himself
and excellent wife to me and mine. The
charges are $2,50 per day or $l2 per week.
The place is quiet and orderly, the living
good, and the lake and land scenery are
varied and picturesque, the air and water
pure. The medicinal waters are chalybeate
and sulphur. •
In another paper I will probably give you
some account of the person.' of the guests
whom I saw. at Stoneboro and what I
thought of them. '
Parties gong from Pittsburgh will take
the 7:28 A. Erie and Pittsburgh cars, and
proceed to Jamestown on that road, about
ninety miles, where they connect with the
train on the Jamestown and Franklin road,
and proceed twenty miles to Stoneboro, ar
riving before three for dinner—or Will get a

IS YOUR DISEASE RHEUMATISM I
Many persons, supposing they are suffering from
this disease, have aprited Llimments, Plasters and
other Rheumatic Remedies without obtaining any
relief, when in fact the cause of pain Is a derange
ment of the Kidneys. These are small organs. but
very important, and any obstruction or interference
with Its functions are Indicated by pain in the bask
and loins, languor and weakness, dilliculty In avoid
ing and unnatural color of the urine. A Diuretic
stionid t once be resorted to.
Liuretic or Backache Pills

direct influence on the cells of the kidneys, assists

THE BODY RENEWEDL
According to Physiologists, the human body is
renewed once in seven years. Every day, every
hour, every moment, the flesh, the cartilage. bone_
andmuscle of the frame are wasting away, and be
ing imperceptibly replaced by new material.
Health depends 'upon the nature of that material,
and whether It shall be pure or diseased, full of
vitality and elasticity, or feebleand flaccid, depends
mainly upon the action of the stomach. In warm
:weather the waste of the system Is very rapid, and
If it is not as rapidly repaired by the great sustain
ing organ, the consequence is debility, emaciation
and decay. It is. therefore, of paramount import
ance that the stomach be kept in a vigorous condi
tion at this trying season, and the safest, surest
and Ink tonic that can be employed for,that purpose
is HOSTETI ER'S BITTERS. This Incomparable
vegetable stomachic gives unwonted energy to the
digestive powers, promotes the conversion of the
food into healthful blood, (which is, so to speak, the
raw material of all the solid portions of the body,)
arid thereby puts the system in the best possible
state of defence against epidemic or other diseases.
The strong require it to keep up their strength; the
weak, to re-invigorate them. It consists of the pu-
rest of all diffusive stimulants. charged - with the
Juices and extracts of the most genial roots and
herbs, and lea permanent testorat ive—not a mere
temporary excitant. It acts simultaneously ulion
the stomach, the bowels and the liver, and Is the
best known remedy for di spepsia, biliousness, cos
tivenoas and general debility.
CURONIC DISEASES OF THE EAR
In observatlons and notes taken by Dr. KEYSER
of this city, on the various diseases of the ear, he
96yE that nine out of ten cues could be cured In
their incipiency if appAcation were made to .c...arne
responsible still competent aural surg462. The
Doctor quotes frem the opinion of wude,
known aural surgeon, who says: "I fear not to re
iterate the assertion which I made on several for-
mer occasions. that If the disease of the ear were as
well studied or understood by the generality of
practitioners, and as early attended to as those of
the eye, It would be found that they were lust as
much within the pale of scientific treatment. • •
Deafness Is so common and so distressing an in
firmity, and when of long standing so Incurable,
that we cannot lola strongly urge all medical practi7
Miters to make themse'ves familiar with the treat
ment of the diseases of the ear:
The Doctor says that nearly all annoying Dis
charges, Buz7ings and Morbid • Growths peculiar to
the organ of the hearing, some of which had lin
gered through a score or two of years, can be cured
or ameliorated by proper treatment.
