TWO LITTLE PAIRS OF BOOTS.
"Two little pairs of boots to-night
Be fore the fire are drying ;
Two little pairs of tired feet
In the trundle-bed are lying
tncks they leave ujon the floor
Makes me feei like sighing.
Those little boots with copper toes,
They run tho live-long day,
And oftentimes I almost wish
That they were miles away ;
So tired I am to hear so oft
Their heavy tramp at play.
They walk about the new-plow'd gruuDd,
Where mud in pleuty lies ;
They roll it up in marbles round,
And bake it into pies,
And then at night upon the floor
Iu every shape it dries.
To-day I war disposed to scold ;
But when I look to-night
At those small boots before the fire—
The copper toes so bright—
I think how sad my heart would be
To put them out of sight.
For in a trunk up stairs I've laid
Two socks of white and blue;
If called fo put those hoots away.
Oh God ! what should I do ?
I mourn that there arc not to-night
Three pairs instead of two,
I mourned, because I thought how nice
My neighbor 'cross the way,
Could keep her carpets all the year,
Fmm getting worn and gray,;
Yet well I know sho'd smile to own
JSome littlo boys to-day !
Ah, we mothers weary get anl worn
Over our load of care ;
But how we speak of these dear ones
Let each of us beware ;
What would our (besides be to-night
If no small boots were there ? "
THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR RUE DELAY
IN RECONSTRUCTION. —The London Times
of a recent date, in a Jenthy article on the
situation in this country, gives the Radical
deslructionists the following to jnedilate
" The responsibility of most of the evils
•at present overshadowing the South rests
upon Congress. The sudden liberation of
four uiiilions of slaves, and the vast de
struction of property, conlJ not, in spite of
all that might be done, fail to cause great
disarrangement and many troubles. — Rut
the inevitable difficulties have beeu increas
ed by inconsiderate or partisan legislatino.
The overthrow of State organizations and
the establishment of military govcrnmenti
strangled private enterprise ane frightened
capitalists away. The delay in the work
of rsconstructiou has further impoverished
the plutiters, AND in homely phrase, taken
'the heart out of them." The promises to
freediucn made under the sanction oi the
Radical party have confused all relations
BETWEEN the employer and the employed
Political discontents — those dkcontents
which have grown up since the war — have
entanglod the people of the two sections
so, that the North will not use the South
even as a field for investment. This is
all that Congress has yet effected lor the
settlement of a question which way intri
cate enough to puzzle the wisest men
America has ever had, but which would
have yielded to patient discussion and fair
treatment. In 1862 Congress silenced
the men who pointed the way to restora
tion, now it is obliged to listen to them,
and the people are not unlikely to take
their adricc after all. "

I The Democratic State Convention.
Five Thousand Persons Present—Great
Enthusiasm—The Speeches, Nomina
tions, and Resolutions, Ac., Ac.
Harrisburgh, l'A , March 4.
Long before the hour of I' 2 o'clock the
hall of the House of Representatives was
: crowded with enthusiastic delegates, called
together from every district in the COM-
I niouwealth. The attendance is the largest
[ ever witnessed at a State Convention iu
Pennsylvania. The number of persons
i present being not less than 0.000.
At 12 M. the Convention was called to
order by Hon. William Wallace, Chair
man of State Committee. The list of del
| egates having been called, Mr. Wallace
proceeded to address the Convention as
j follows :
I GENTLEMEN OK THE CONVENTION ; The
political events of the last year arc fnll of
: reasons for pride in your strength and con
fidence in your future. Success has
crowned your efforts, and the great princi
j pies of civil liberty and constitutional gov
| ernment have asserted their power over
] the minds of the people. These great doc
-1 trines gave birth to our organization, and
when WE are defeated in their support, like
' the fabled Anteus when hurried to his
mother earth, we gather therefrom new
; vigor to rise again stronger and more
determined. The war and its attendant
j train of horrors are remembered in sad
! ness. Reason resumes its throne, and de
! signing men can no longer attain their self
j ish ends by appeals to passion. Christian
charity now fills the place that rancor had
usurped, and hate and hiiterness are slow
ly passing away. The Radical party have
shown their incapacity to govern the re
public, and the mass of their own adher-
I ents recognize the fact. Famine and
j crime, military rule, insecurity of life and
I property, the negro dominant, the white
raee oppressed, are the proofs of this in
one section ; while grinding taxation, un
certaintv*i business, and financial distress
pervade the other. The Radical party has
given us a broken and dissevered union,
corruption, extravagance in the use of the
public money, confusion in monetary af
fairs, mismanagement of the immense rev
enues it has wrung from the people. It
can unite upon no policy but the perpetu
ation of its own power. In the mad spirit
of faction it seeks to strip the executive of
11is prerogative, to ignore the sacred func
tions of tin: judiciary. It tramples upon
' (he organic law. reverses our traditions,
and brands as criminal every attempt to
stay its wild career. Our form of govern
ment is the external evidence of our ca
pacity for sell-government — for govern- .
ments are what the people make them. IF!
we can govern ourselves we can sustain
the government we love, and can safely
trust to the force of ideas, to the march of
mind, to public opinion, to crush with the
ballot those* who through the forms OI law
attack the vital spirit of our institutions. —
The people have ordained a free system
of laws, and a complex yet simple organ- I
ism— the people, the State, and the Union.
The preservation of the rights of each of)
these is essential fo the existence of the
whole. To maintain these they have ERE- j
ated the throe great co-oidinate branches |
of the Government — the executive, the leg
islative, and the judicial. The public good
and private rights demand the preservation
of the integrity of each. Sovereignty is
in the people. The Government is their
creature, sworn to piotect their liberties.
Its division into independent branches was
of the very essence ot the system ; the de
struction of either is a stride towards tyr- J
army. The organic law defines the power
of each, and to that law each must he con
formed. The Constitution is the supreme I
law. It is the only evidence of powers J
granted bv the States and the people. It j
must be strictly pursued and implicitly '
obeyed. To sustain these truths more than
ILUO,OOO men, in conscious strength and !
quiet dignity, await your call, and this day I
speak through you for obedience to law, I
for the government of the Constitution, I
aud for the Federal Union of the States.
On motion of Hon. S. £. Ancona, of I
Berks, the Hon. William M. Randall, of
Schuylkill county, was chosen temporary
chairman of the Convention.
Mr. Randall, upon taking the chair, was
greeted with tremendous applause. He
addressed the Convotition in substance as !
We are on the eve of opening the Pres
idential campaign, and if we desire success
in our deliberations they must be conduct
ed with wisdom and judgment. We mnst
burv all past differences and animosities,
and unite in one solid phalanx to defeat
our ancient enemy ,w ho is arrayed before ui,
and whose only name really is opposition
to the Democratic patwy. The success of j
that party is imperatively demanded, not
on accouut of the advancement of individ
uals, but that not only the welfare of the '
people, but the very essence of the govern- 1
merit itself may be saved. Look into the
national councils, that should be the repre- !
sentativc of the people, and find the exec - j
utive branch of the government enslaved, I
the judiciary of the nation curtailed of its'
prerogatives, and the legislature, which 1
under our form of government was but a
co-ordinate branch, assuming the entire
power and control of the national trinity in
a way that has been deemed by all the
great legal minds of the country inimical
to the unity of the nation, if not violative L
of the organic law.
MR. Smith, of Lancaster, ofiered the fol
Resolved, That A committee of thirty
three, the members thereof to be named
by the delegations from the different Sen
atorial Districts, be appoined to report
I permanent officers of the Convention.
The resolution wa agreed to.
The committee on permanent organiza
! tion reported for President the Hon. Wm.
Hopkins, of Washington connty, with a
Vice President from each Senatorial dis
trict, and five Secretaries, The veteran
Hopkins, on taking the chair, was greeted
with prolonged applause. lie referred
briefly to passing events, saying the De
mocracy had stood by the Constitution and
the Union of the States from the founda
tion of the Government ; so it would staud
in every crisis, whether the same be assail
ed by traitors from without or secret foes

Isaac E. Ileister, Asa Packer, George W. j

The convention adjourned with three J
cheers for Johnson, the Union, and the
Lewis C. Cassidy, of Philadelphia, from
the committee on resolutions, reported the j
following, which were adopted :
Resulted, That the happiness of the people and j
the preservation and continuance of our power as a
| republic depend upon the perjcUiity of the Union
; and the preservation of the Constitution ; and the
J prompt restoration of each and all of the States to
, tho enjoyment of their rights aud functions in the
j Union is essential to our progress, our prosperity,
and the protection of our liberties; and Radical leg
i lslation is the barrier thereto.
Resulted, That the Constitution of the United
' States is the supreme law. It is binding upon the
| people and upon every department of the Uovcrn-
I mout, and it is the highest duty of those in and out
; of official place to yield implicit obedience to all its
! provisions until it is changed in the manner provided
therein. That the recent attempts of the legislative
j branch of the government to usurp the office of the
executive and to destroy the independence of the ju
diciary are deliberate attacks upon the plaioestpro
visions of the Constitution, iu utter violation of its
spirit, and tend to the overtnrow of the government
Resolved, That the Radicals in Congress have
wruug from the people enormous sums of money
which they have squandered in icckless extravagance;
that their system of revenue is ill-devised, incongru
ous, and inequitable, that rigid economy ia every
branch of the public service, a decrease in tho num
ber oi ofiicers, a reduction in the army and navy,and
reform in the collection of revenue, are imperatively ;
demanded, and only by this means can a reduction
in the amount of taxation now imposed on the indus
trial and manufacturing interests bo attained, and
the payment of our indebtedness be assured.
Resolved, That the Republican party ig responsi
ble to the country for the delay of the restoration of
the Southern States to their just relations in the Un
ion. and for the government of their pet pie by mili
tary rule ; that the purpose of these measures is to
perpetuate Radical power through the votes of illit
Rcsolred, That in enacting the Tenure-of-Office
j law, tho Legislative and Executivo branches of the
1 government each had a right to judge of itaconsti-
I tutionality ; aud that in thus exercising the right the
j Executive was only complying with that porti m of
I his oath ot office which required him to " preserve,
protect, and defend the Constitution of the United
! States," and that it is the right of every br.anch of
: the Government, and of every citizeD, to have the
I questions involving the constitutionality of any law
speeiily adjudicated by the Supreme Court of the
United Statoc, and the right of all the people to have
said decisions enforced.
Resulted, That the pendinz impeachment of the
President of the United States is a grogs and reck
less abuse of partisan power, without justifiable cause,
ami intended for the attainment of party purposes at
the sacrifice of the most vital interests of the country.
! Resolved That a return to a specie-paying basis
! at the earliest possible moment is essential to the
interests of tbe people and the prosperity of tho na
ResoWed, That the national debt should be paid
as rapidly as is consistent wilh the terms of the laws
uin whwh tbe several loans are based,
in the view of the Democracy the flag ot the country

CURIOSITIES OF A CONSTITUTION. —It
seems a paradox to say those persons who
shout loudest for liberty are commonly
i the most illiberal ; but the world abounds
in proofs of the assertion. The telegraph
J brings fresh evidence from the State of
Arkansas. The convention which has
| been incubating at Little Rock for a long
j time past has at last hatched out a conati
| tution, which combines the extremes of
: freedom and tyranny to an extent hard to
be paralelled in history, After giving the
ballot to women and negroes, it proceeds
to declare how voting shall be done on the
i new constitution. Voters are required
,to swear that they have never given aid
'to secession in any State. This offers a
premium to perjurv, or shuts the door of
repentance and reformation against those
j who have erred, and it is of itself a mon-
I strous instance of injustice. Not satisfied
with this, the framers of the constitution
clap a muzzle upon every man's mouth, by
requiring him to swear that he accepts
for all times the social and political equal
ling of the white and black races; not mere
ly the " political, " observe, but the " soci
al! ! " But the essential despotism ofthis
new constitution reaches the climax when,
after insisting on all these qualifications J
for voting it disfranchises all persons who '
shall vote against the new Constitution. — 1

; Jt^-Judge Woodward has already prov
;ed himself as aide a debater in Congress
las he was jurist upon the bench, llis late
| speech upon the currency is, we think, one
;of the ablest speeches ever made in Con
giess, and is absolutely unanswerable.—
Nor does he fail to denounce in fitting
! terms the monstrous crime of impoverish
ing the white race to let nejjroes eat the
bread of idleness, lie says: " Let the
country understand, therefore, that one
hundred millions of their money go annu
ally to setting up the negio to rule over
white men. * * * g ut t}jj s j s cot a ]i
the negro is costing us. * * There are
three and a half millions more of money
thrown away upon the negro. The secre
tary says the freedmen, as a people, are
making rapid progress in education, and
mechanic arts, and in all branches of indu3
try, and snrely they ought to be, for no
white men were ever so cared for by this
government; ft d, clothed, warmed, educa
ted, doctored, and carried about the conn
try at the expense of the government."—
Is not such a picture enongh to inspire the
white race in America with a feeling of
shame and revenge ? Then this report
referred to by Judge Woodward, of the
progress of the negroes are making is to
wards their natural barbarism. They
are already progressing in Hayti, Jamaica,
Trinidad , Barbadoes, Surinam, and any
other spot where they have been let loose
from the control ol the white race. — Old
A NICE LITTLE ROMANCE. —In *64, one
of Price's rebs got left behind after a raid
on Glascow.Mo being dangerously wounded
in the back. Miss Sarah A. Smith, a
school teacher happening to pa®s by took
pity on him and staunched his wounds
probably saving his life. She remained
with him till near nightfall, when the sol
dier advised her to leave, saying that his
companion would probably come in the
night and take him — if not, she would
find him there in the morning. He told
her that his name was H. C. McDonald,
and that he was from Louisville, Kv. —
The next morning he was gone, and Miss
Smith did not hear from him again till
a few days ago, when she received a letter
from the administrator of 11. C- McDonald,
senioT, informing her that she was named
in the will of the deceased as the legatee of
$50,000, in consideration of saving the
life of his nephew and only heir, the
11. C, McDonald named in connection with
the incident of 1864. The Glasgow
Times vouches for the correctness of this

—One winter day, with careful foot, I wan
dered o'er the slippery way ; The snow, in
balls beneath my boot, made it a task up
right to stay. And I so waddled in my walk,
I jostled every one I met; So that some in
some familiar talk, remarked : "He's very
tight, you bet!"
I stooped and stood upon one leg, With
cane to clear uiy hampered tread ; But as I
stooped a boy did "peg" Another snow bad
at my bead. And thus. I said, as down my
neck I felt the melted snow balls ran. We
