It puzzles the "narrow-minded block

not speak a dozen sentences correctly or in

if they could be made to believe the truth j
that he doesn't write his letters. Ills si
lence is equally as great on paper as other
wise. Stanton wrote his letters to the Pres
ident and nearly all his other letters are the
production of other peos than his.

The Rollins Imbroglio.
The following sharp response of Secre
tary McCullougli to the insolent and lying
letter ot Rollins, (Radical) Commissioner of
Internal Revenue, we take from yester
day's daily paper. It is a complete refu
tation of the charges made by Commission
er Rollins in his pretended letter of resig
nation. This Rollins is a mere tool of the
Jacobin party, and as such, has lent him
self to its dirty work. lie lias endeavor
ed, by falsehood, to bolster up the sinking
cause of his party, but has utteily failed
in his first attempt:
"This communication is partial, because
it attributes the present deranged con
dition of the Internal Revenue service to
removals and appointments made by the
President, while it must be clear to tbe
mind of the Commissioner that this de
moralization is attributable in part to an
tagonism between the Executive and the
Legislative branches of the Government,
which has prevented harmony of actiou
between them in regard to appointments,
and to the Tenure of Office act,but mainly
to the high duties upon distilled spirits,
tobacco, &c., which have created an irre
sistible temptation to fraud on the part of
revenue officers as well as on the part of
manufacturers, dealers, and others.
u Il is incorrect, in that it alleges that
numerous recommendations of the Com
missioner for the removal of Assessors and
Collectors, even for the grossest miscon
duct, had been always disregarded, while
the truth is that in all cases in which rcc
omendations for removals were accompa
nied by evidence of incompetency and
misconduct or. the part of officers, the rec
omendations were promptly responded to
by the President.
'•lt is unjust and disrespectful to the
President, because the records of the
Bureau show that the falling off of revenue
in districts in which removals were made
by the President in 'G6 was not compara
tively greater than in districts in which no
change took place ; that, in fact, the rev
enues of the fiscal year ending June 30th.
1867, during which removals were made,
were entirely satisfactory, coming np very
closely to the liberal estimates of the De
partment, while the demoralization of the
service and the decline cf the revenues
have chiefly occurred during the present
fiscal year, long after the officers remjved
by the President had been rcinsiated or
others whose nomination had been approv
ed by the Senate had taken the places of
the appointees of the President.
"It was for these reasons, and no other,
that the communication could not be re
ceived, and was returned to the Commis
sioner. The return of it is also justified
by the fact that copies of it were sent to
the press before it was handed to the Sec
retary. It must, therefore, have been in
tended for the public rather than for the
files of the Department."
Thnrlow Weed before the Smelling Com
mittee, in an effort to draw from him some
confession damaging to the Senators who
voted for Mr. Johnson'* acq littal, Butler
asked, "Do you know of any money contrib
uted for political purposes ?" 4 'l do sir. I
helped lo raise $30,000 not long ago for
such a purpose."—Butler, all alive to fur
ther developments, continued: "\ou will
state to the Committee what use was made
of it" "It was used,'replied Weed, "to en
able the Republicans to carry tbe New
Hampshire election." That was a blos
som from a sour apple, and a suddeo ad
journment of the Committee was the con
sequence ot its introduction by Mr Weed.

The Radical Leader* of 1860 and 1869
Contrasted. *
. A moment's glance at the present situa
tion of the Radical party, will serve to
show its contrast between its condition in
iB6O and 1868. Among the conspicuous
members of the Republican Convention
of 1860 were such men as Fiancis 11.
Blair, Wm. M. Evarts, and a host of others
embodying the talent and the respectabili
ty of the Convention —a majority of whom
are now ranked among the most decided
opponents of the Radicals. In the Chica
go Convention of this year, there were four
prominent candidates for the Presidential
nomination —Lincoln, Seward, Chase and
Bates. The last act of Lincoln's life was
to originate and adopt the policy of John
son. Bates abandoned the present Radi
ical organization before Lincoln died;
Seward is an active enemy of Radicalism,
and if there is one man in the United
States whom the Radicals of to-day hate
more bitterly thaft Andrew that
man is Salmon P. Chase. Then Chase,
and Trumbull, and Fessenden, and Grimes,
and Doolittle, and Dixon, and Stansbury
and a host of other great names were in
the ranks of the Republicans. Now, they
are either acting openly with the Democ
racy, or are read out of the Radical party
by the hot heads who control it. Nor is
this all that is noticeable. While the
statesmen of the Republican party have
abandoned Radicalism, the vicious and
treacherous elements of the Democratic
party have entered its fold. The parly
which became too corrupt for Chase and
Doolittle, Bates and Evarts, has demon
strated its Rtfinity for Butler and Logan,
Stanton and Dan Sickles. The leaJers of
the Republican party to-day—the men who
have Grant in their keeping—were clam
orous for secession in 1860, and justified
the Southern States in resorting to arms
to repel the exercise of Federal power.—
Now Butler, Logan, Stanton, and Dan
Sickles are blatant Radical demagogues,
and are accorded the highest positions of
honor in the party that so recently despis
ed them. They take the places once oc
cupied by Seward, Chase, Trumbull, Stan
bery, and others like them.— Albany Ar

In addition to these it must have "either
Pennsylvania or Ohio, or Indiana with
Nebraska or Nevada," in order to get the
requisite numbet of elcctorial votes to se
cure the election.
It will thus be seen that the newly " re
constructed "' States arc the ones which
the Jacobins rely upon to carry the elec
tion, and heuce their desperate efforts to
get President Johnson out of the way, so
that Congress and the carpet-baggers may
have full sway in the South. If these
44 reconstructed " States here enumerated
—in which every one knows that not one
ir. fifty of the rightful voters will vote the
Jacobin ticket—are allowed to be so man
ipulated by Congress as to cast a deciding
vote in favor of the Jacobins, it will be the
greatest political outrage ever perpetrated
iu any country ; and if the Conservatives
acquiesce in a Jacobin victory obtained by
such transparent fraud and chicanery, they
will be equally responsible with the Jaco
bins for the final overthrow of Republi
can institutions in this country.—MiJdle

Chief Justice Chase cm t'le Situation.
The following is an extract from a pri
vate letter written by Chief Justice Chase :
I am amazed by the torrent of invec
tives by which I am drenched. Almost
everything alleged fact is falsehood out of
the whole cloth. Where au allegation
has a littte fact in it the fact is so perver
ted and travestied that it becomes false
hood. I know no motive tor all this ex
cept disappointment that impeachment
has not thus far proved a success, coupled
with a belief that I have done something
to prevent it being a success. I have not
been a partisan of impeachment certainly,
but I have not been a partisan on the other
side. As presiding officer over the trial
my conscience testifies that I have been
strictly impartial; and lam sure that any
one who reads the report will say so. In
dividually I have my convictions and opin
ions, but I have very 6eldom given utter
ance to them. Indeed. I do not think
that the case, in any of its aspects, has
been the subject of conversation between
myself and more than four or five Sena
tors, and then only casually and briefly.—
No Senator will say that I have sought
to influence him.
The real ground of denunciation is that
I have not been a partisan of conviction ;
and tbis denunciation 1 am willing to
bear. They may denounce and abuse me
and read me out of the party if they
choose. I follow my old lights, not the
tW Ben. Butler made himself famous
in New Orleans by his war on women, and
to keep iiis exploits fresh in the minds of
the people has commenced persecuting Miss
Vinnie lieam,an accomplished young sculp
tress in Washington, whom Congress com
missioned some time ago to make a statue
of President Lincoln. After failing to get
her to use her influence with Senator Boss
to go for convicting the President,they have
assailed her character, and have ordered
her out of her studio in the basement of
the capitol, and thus destroyed ber model,
which cannot be removed. What a pitiful
spectacl the American Congress presents !
Galena, the home of General Grant,
answersd the voice of Oregon by electing
the whole Democratic ticket, on Friday

Colfax on Free Speech.
In bis letter of acceptance Schuyler Col
fax says :
"If tbsre bod been no Republican party, a free
press and free speech would be ss unknown from the
Potomac to the Rio Orande as ten years ago."
Perhaps, says the llarri6burg Patriot,
Schuyler has not heard of the doings of
the military Satraps in the South during
the past year. Undoubtedly be is ignorant
that an editor in Tennessee and another iu
South Carolina were lately imprisoned for
strictures published upon military govern
ment ; that several others have been com
pelled to relinquish their positions upon
notice from the military authorities
that free speech is a crime ; that scores of
newspapers have been warned to cease op
position to the "reconstruction" acts or be
closed up. He does not know, probably,
that judges have been dragged to prison
for refusing to empanel uegro juries ; that
all public officers have been debarred from
the right to speak in opposition to the Af
ricanization acts of the Rump ; that thous
ands of white men have been rejected from
the registry lists for electioneering for a
white man's government and that negroes
have been mobbed, beaten and murdered
by loyal rnobs for daring to speak for and
vote the Democratic ticket. Of course he
has forgotten (Radicals have short memo
ries, yon know,) the reign of terror which
existed during 1862-3 4, during which time
more than one hundred Democratic news
paper offices were mobbed and destroyed,
and scores of editors thrown into prison
and their papers suppressed,excluded from
the mails, Jcc., because tliey dared to pub
lish the truth. He never heard the tinkle
of the little bell, which sent hundreds of
honest and guiltless men to dungeons for
the "crime" of telling the Radical despots
and plunderers they were hypocrites and
scoundrels, and that they were dragging
the country down to the ruin and degre
dation which it is now so rapidly ncaring
Certainly Mr. Colfax never knew or heard
of these circumstances or he would not at
tempt to impose upon the American peo
ple so palpable an untruth as the above.
The Radical Double-faced Platform.
The Chicago Republican platform, on
the two leading questions of the day—the
money question and the negro suffrage
question —is a thing of two faces, yea, we
may sav, of four. On the money question
it has a face looking East and a face look-
West ; and on the negro suffrage question
it has a face looking South and a face
looking North. We have shown that on
the national debt this double-faced plat
form may be claimed by Butler as calling
for greenbacks, arid by Greeley as demand
ing gold for the five-twenties. On negro
suffrage thus reads this two-faced platform.
"That the guarantee by Congress of equal
suffrage to all loyal men in the South was
demanded by every consideration of pub
lic safety, of gratitude, and of justice, and
must be maintained ; while the question ot
suffrage in all the loyal States properly be
longs to the people of those States.'' 'J his
is a shabby backdown from the grand Rad
ical ideas of "universal suffrage." impar
tial suffrage,and "equal rights." Con
gress, having forced universal negro suf
frage upon the late Itebel Southern States,
is bound to maintain it over them ; but
Ohio and New York last fall, and Michi
gan tl|js spring, having each, by a heavy
popular majority repudiated universal ne
gro suffrage, Congress will not touch nor
do anything for their colored populations.
Mr. Senator Sumner's bill providing by
act of Congress for universal negro suffrage
over all the States must be held for a more
convenient season, and Wendell Phillips
are left to mourn over or revult against the
treachery of the Chicago Convention. The
genuine equal rights Radical, North and
South, if no double dealers themselves
with Sambo, will show their scorn by put
ting an independent Presidential ticket in
the field without loss of time,— New York
Practical Application of Radioal Policy.
It is reported that a gentleman, a Dem
erol, living in the southern part of this
county, being desirous of illustrating the
beauties of Radicalism, and testing the sin
ceritv of its votaries and advocates, invited
a certain Radical to his bouse to stay over
night with him, and at the same time in
vited a " man and brother " to pass the
night under his hospitable roof.
Bed-time arriving, our Democratic
friend took a light and conducted the
" brother "to the room and pointed out
the bed he was to occupy. Soon after,
the Radical gentleman desired to retire,
and our friend also conducted hint to the
same room, and informed him that be was
to occupy the same bed.
Who is in tbat bed ? " asked the Rad
< Mr ," was the answer.
" What! That nigger?" indignantly
exclaimed the Radical ; " you don't sup
pose I am going to sleep with him, do
you ? "
" I most certainly do, " was the quiet
reply. " You voted to force this state of
affairs upon me aud my people, and took
and subscribed an oath that you would
grant the nigger every " privileged and
immunity" enjoyed by any class of per
sons, and ( producing a six-shooter ) by
the Eternal you shall carry out your poli
cy—go in there with you ! "

imity to the pistol, got into bed, but we do

Why Grant Dislikes the Jews.
The question is often asked." What has
Gen. Grant against the Jews 7 " or " Why
did he issue that notorious proclamation
driving all Jews and other vagabonds sut
side his encampment I " And, not having
seen published any satisfactory answer, I
will give jou what I suppose to be the real
cause of his dislike of the Jews. Daring the
winter of 1859 and 18G0, while Grant was
living at Gsleaa, he took into his head to
commence business on his own hook ; and
thinking there was a speculation in buying
drpssed hogs and shipping them to Chicago
he came down to the town of Bellevue, lying
some 12 miles southwest on the we*t bankot
the Mississippi, for the purpose of buying of
farmers as they caine in town with their
pork, and having it haulod to Galena, and
there shipped on the railroad to Chicago, or
in any other way disposed of so as to make
a profit, which was a very honorable, and if
managed understanding!)-, could have been
a profitable business. There lived at that
time in Bellevue a man by the name of Ro
senthal, who was a Jew, and who was in the
pork trade, and, of course, would be glad to
keep the trade in his own hands ;so he de
termined, if possible, not to givo Grant much
of a chance, and the first two or throe loads
of pork, were bid up far beyond its real value
and finally sold to Grant. By this time
Kosenthal discovered that Grant knew no
difference between the price of light and heavy
hogs, when, in reality, there is a difference of
at least one dollar per hundred, —heavy hogs
being worth one dollar the most,—the hogs
already purchased being light, and he having
paid the lull price for heavy hogs. So Rosen
thai goes to his warehouse ; selects out all
his light h >gs, enough to load two or three
wagons ; gets some farmers who had wood
racks on their wagons to load on the hogs,
drive out of town by another street, snd come
in on the main road to the corner where they
were buying. Rosenthal meets ihetn by an*
other street, snd commencjd bidding against
Grant, and, after bidding the p rk up to the
full value of heavy pork, it wa* sold to Grant
But the joke, or " sell being too good to
keep, it was not half an hour before every*
body nearly was splitting with laughter to
see how the Jew had sold the Galena pork
buyer ; which so di-gnsteJ Grant that be
went home that night, and was never seen in
Bellevue after. And that transaction so em
bittered him against the old tribes ot Israel
that I doubt whether he could now be recon
ciled. And this is undoubtedly the whole
caue of the expulsion of Jews from his camp.

The Secretaryship of the Senate.
Forney, afier inflicting a moral odium on
the Senate which any jury would assess at
more than §4O 000 damages, has at last been
weeded out. Various men have aspired to
his place. Among tliem Creswell, of Mary
land. lb: was a secessionist in 1801, and
afterward became a torch and turpentine
tramp. He took advice and withdrew. His
record as a Senator is of too recent memory
to make hi association tolerable even to the
Rump. Fulton, of the Baltimore American,
loomed up His paper led the applause for
Maishall Kane when Federal Soldiers wtre
killed in Baltimore, April 10, 18gl, and he
uiged making Baltimore a Moscow, bef-ro
yielding it to Northern occupation, ot allow
ing Union soldiers to march through it to
Washington. He afterwards became " loy
al "in a night before coercion, just as Ben
nett duf in the Heral'l. Since then he has
been the most radical of Radicals. But
reported to be a strict pecuniary proto
type of Forney, he was contumaciously re
jected. Burbrtdge of Kentucky wauled the
place. Butler and Bingham laid pipe for
him. Probably his backers defeated him.—
The memory of the murdered Mumford anil
the " blood of an innocent woman" attach
ing to Burbridge'a supporter*, made the Sen
ate think of the defenceless Confederate sol
diers, twelve in all, whom this man shot in
cold blood one Summer morning near Lex
ington. The Senate declined the infamy of
Ins r> corderslup'by one vote, not willing, af
ter the experience of Forney, to take Bur
bridge, albeit with ao scriptural an injunc
tion as " let him that stole steal no more."
Thesa are the defeated candidates. A sorry
list, unless compared with the majority of
'ho elt-c'ors wtio defeated them, only to elect
on# even more in their own likeness. This
man is Gorham He belonged to California
till that State gave him a forcible invitation
to leave last year. It may or may n<>t be

him at the last election. A packed conven

lican paper in lite country, including the New
York I'osl and Times, and several indecent
journals of the same politics, among them the
77 flume, denounced his nomination as dis
gracelul. California papers sang in the same
key. A third man, and an honest, Mr. Bid
well, was run against him Governor Ilaight
had the pleasure of defeating both by a ma
jority of 8,000. Repudiated by his State,
political putrescence buoyed him to Washing
ton. There be has conOnuod the courses of
lobbyists and what not that made it healthy
for him for to change his residence. The

braved public sentiment by praising him

At the late Methodist Conference,
which assembled at Chicago, the Rev.Mr.
Waldo introduced the following resolution:
"That all government is based upon the re
ligious ideas of those who carry it on,and
that the Northern Methodist have acquired
bv conquest the right to control the religion
of the South. That it is just as wrong to allow
the Southern Methodists to meet and wor
ship in their ways as it would be to allow
Lee and dohnson to call together and drill
their armies again. 1 hey will soon be pro
hibited from so doing. The religion of the
North is bound to rule this continent and it
proposes to make a proper application
of our Bible to all the Southern States and
people. A subjugated people have no more
right to apply their own peculiar moral
ideas,than to use their physical implements
of war."
We have not the patience to comment
on thisinfamous thing. We almost wish we
knew how to blaspheme like old Ben Wade
that we might swear at it. But this is the de
graded level to which the religion and pol
itics of this country are descending under
the reign of the African barbarian party.

him the time of the day, when the Major
rejoined ; " Who are you, and what do you
want ?" He replied ; M My name is Nash
sir." " Well," says the Major, "what of
that ? " " Oh, sir. '' said he, " I am Bev
erly Nash, Senator elect to the State Leg
islature of South Carolina, and have call
ed upon you officially to pay my compli
ments as such." * Well, sir, 1 neither
pive nor receive compliments from niggers.''
But says Nash, " I am not a nigger, I am
colored ." The Major brought the whole
matter to a speedy and final close by say -
ing : " You are a nigger, sir, and as black
a one as J ever saw. I recognize but three
races, and these are whites, Indians and
niggers." — Charleston Mercury,

our black biethern and equals, was deba

passed. This is the way a Radical Con
gress retrenches the expenses of the Gov
ernment and lightens the burdens of the
people, by appropiating millions of dollars
annually to support and clothe a lot of
ignorant, lazy niggers, in order that tbey
may secure their votes.
Let it be remembered by the people,
that a Radical Congress is appropiating
j'early, a suin of money, for party purposes
aud party good only, that nearly equals
the entire expenses of the government
when under Democratic control.
