THE PEPPER'S CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT,
SATURDAY EVENING, MARCH 12, 1864.
We are just as ready to denounce a fraud
committed on the Government as any jour
nalist in the country—and we have gone as
far as the most zealous in condemning those
in authority, when the public voice has point
ed to their dereliction. But we wish to ask
seriously, what are the benefits which have
been conferred on the country by the differ
ent Congressional and Legislative committees
whose invedtigations are daily being laid be-
fore the world? These committees, partic
ularly when their attention is directed to
officers in command in the field, constitute a
source of annoyance to our fighting men, in
nine cases out of ten, more dangerous than
are the armed foes of the nation. The testi
mony before such bodies is always a jarring,
discordant mass of elimination and recrimin
ation—witnesses broadly contradicting each
other—until the veracity of good men is placed
in conflict—and the summing up of the evi
dence results in the failure to convict any
body—in fact to do anything but waste
immense sums of money in paying the fees
of witnesses, printing the reports, and scan
dalizing the nation at large. The evidence in
the case. of Major-General Meade is in point.
Serious charges were preferred against this
gallant soldier. These were sustained by
men who fought- bravely by his side while
they were at the same time flatly contra
dicted by other officers who fought as
bravely with -their accused leader. Now,
what are sensible men to think of such
proceedings? What are the men in the rants
of the army to--think of such ioaestigations?
They impress the nation, the world and our
brave boys who endure fire and sword, the
weary march and the cheerless blvoutiek, with
diarist. If wrongs are committed, let the
proper tribunals take in hand and punish the
offenders. It is not necessary that Congress
should organize itself into a Court of Quartor
Sessions, for the trial of dishonest contractors,
or tliatit should form a Court Martial for the m
vestigation of charges against militaryofficis,
If Congress attends to its legitimate business,
it will have more labor to discharge than
most of its members are capacitated for. If
it legislates for the good of the nation, and
frames wholesome laws for the punishment
criminals and delinquents, there are these
outside of its halls who will see that they are
A Legislator on the Rampage;
Benjamin Franklin Meyers, the editor of the I
Bedford Gazette; (one of the vilest and most in
tolerant copperhead sheets in the Common
wealth:ols also a memher of the Legislature.
In hie leisure moments, (and they are numer
ous,) he amuses himself by writing letters
from the 'Mouse of Representatives,"- to the
Gazette, from one of which productions we ex
tract the following:
There is quite a flutter, just now, among 1
the "Republican" Abolition politicians. They •
are divided into three factions, the Chase,
Lincoln and Fremont parties. The war be
tween the Chasites and the Lincolnits is grow
ing very bitter, and the whole Abolition
Presidential imbroglio is "a very pretty quar
rel as it stands." The Democracy are united,
harmonious and determined. "There is a
better day coming, wait a little longer."
—When Benjamin penned the foregoing,
lie knew that he eras writing an untruth, but
the hunger of his readers for what is false and
vile induced him, doubtless,
.to concoct the
lie. That the Union men of Pennsylvania:and
hereabouts particularly, are united ankt4e4A. o.
nions, is what troubles the bowels of suplatAieds
as Meyers. That the loyal men of thetegisle
ture are undivided in favor of Mr. Lincolk is is
palpable as the fact that they are devoted
the Union. Anti yet there is one who occu
pies a seat on the floor of that House, who in
4he presence of this unanimity, deliberately
occupies himself with writing falsehoods
the readers of a . journal; of which he is . the
controller, to servo the dirty purposes of his
colleagues of his side of the House in deceiv
ing tke people. Is it to be wondered at that
the people are losing faith in the morality ot
of many of our legislators ?
TEC LEGIBLATMLE OF Taw Yana has decided
to enlarge their Capitol building to meet the
increasing wants of the State Government.
This reminds us that the wants of the Gov-
ernment of Pennsylvania, both executive and
legislative, demand a similar enlargement of
our Capitol , building. The increased labors
of the different departments have made it ne
cessary to employ additional clerical force—
while the coming into operation of military
departments whose duties, before the war,
were merely nominal, completely crowd the
Capitol building with business, taking up
rooms which were heretofore used exclusively
by committees, awl forcing committees to
meet in the Library rooms, for the transaction
of their business. It is ardently hoped. by
those who have the public interest sincerely
at heart, that the Legislature will not adjourn
without providing for this great want of room
to accommodate the different departments.
Indeed the highest interests 'depend for suc
cess upon such enlarged facilities for the
transaction of the daily growing public busi
A PECLADELPRIe paper of yesterday says
"that a letter has been received from a friend
of the late brave Col. Dahlgren, who served
with that unfortunate officer during the re
cent raid about Richmond, which states em
phatically that the so-called 'order' alleged to
have been found upon the body of Dahlgren,
wai a fabrication and forgery in tote. No such
order was ever written, issued, printed, or
even considered by the noble young Colonel,
as fax as his friends are - apprized. It is be
lieved that this miserable lie was gotten up

The constitutional Amendments.--S en
The right of the soldier to vote—the right
of the soldier to be represented in the Govern
ment, involves a question of the most vital
importance. The orighial colonists, who
pioneered the newly-formed States through
the rough battle fields of the Revolutionary
war, fought for identically the same principle
for which the friends of the soldiers now eon
tend. The colonists, while contributing to
the success and the glory of the mother coun
try, deemed that they had a right to represen
tation—a right to participate in the control of
a government of which they were so import
ant a portion. We all know what followed the
refusal to acknowledge this right. Prom its
rejection sprang the mighty Republic which
is now filled with a dissension on identically
the same question. A class at the South,
which has assumed to itself aristocratic attri
butes, have long declared that there was too
much representation in the Government—
that the irresponsible masses had too much
control in affairs of State—and hence to crush
the idea of free government, the Southern
aristocracy resolved, and for three years have
waged a war for the introduction of slavery, and
the degradation of free labor in all the States.
Acting with the aristocracy in the South,
(which is the only element of the influence
which monarchial Europe left in the Ameri
can States, after its rule was broken therein,)
we have a party here in the North, seeking to
carry out the- Original idea of disfranchis
ing the masses. 'They started the experiment
by attempting to disfranchise the soldier.
If they could outlaw' the soldier, as it
were, by disfranchising him, the path to the
disfranchisement of the citizen would be con
siderably shortened. If they could degrade
the defenders of the Government by refusing
them citizenship, they would soon render onr
institutions too worthless to be defended, and
thereby make certain the conspiracy to over
throw and destroy the Govermnent. This is
just the light in which to view this question of
enfranchising the soldier. But we did not
commence-to write this article for the pur
pose of. diitussing the subject of the soldiers'
right to vote. We rather took up our pen to
point to the very able speech of Senator John
son, published on our outside of this after
noon., Senator Johnson may be justly re
garded as the champion of the principle
involved in the question of the soldiers' right
to vote, as it was he who introduced the
amendment to the Constitution. His ad
vocacy of that amendment has been per
siatent -and eloquent; and the speech which
we publish ,this afternoon, though brief, is
nevertheless a very powerful defence of his
principles. We trust that the soldiers who
are now present in the capital, will not fail to
read this speech. Our brave defenders are
here to - note the pro - ceedings on this - great
measure of justice and of right. By the vote
on the liassage of,this ainendinerd they can; see
that every Annocrat:bitt One, either toted against
or dodged the guestiOn.

The Publte Schools of liarrishtliv.
EDITOR:—Some days ago I handed to
the local editor of the Patriot and Union the
following communication,which promptly ap
peared in its columns: -
" Oun Commol; Scuoona.—The common
school system of our State is one of her
proudest monuments. She has reason to con
gratulate herself upon its excellence, and can
look with honest pride upon what it has al
ready accomplished. One of its adriiirable
features is that, whilst it is adapted to all sec
tions of the State, and capable of practical
and profitable application to sparsely settled
and poorer districts, it is at the same time spe
cially suited to meet the educational wants of
larger towns and cities; and, when properly
developed and applied, secures, at the very
lowest rate of expense, the very best education- '
al facilities for the entire population.
That these excellencies of the system have
not been illustrated in our own city is no
fault of the system itself, but is owing mainly
to two causes: first, an unwarrantable and
unreasonable prejudice against the system on
the part of some of our leading citizens • and
secondly, to a defective developcment and
plieation of the system on the part of those
entrusted with its management in our com
munity. Were it not for the influence of
.these causes we should now have our common
schools thoroughly graded, the - primary
schools reduced in size and supplied with
truly capable teachers, and we should have
one male and one female high school, to which
our wealthier citizens, who are now paying
their school taxes for nothing, could send their
children without any further expense.
The opinion is indeed entertained. by some
among us that such carefully graded schools,
culminating in a male and female high school
for the entire city, have elsewhere pioved a
failure. We-have been at some pains to
certain the facts in the ease, and have ob
tained permission from the present Superin
tendent of . Common Schools of our State, C.
It. Coburn, Egq., to lay before your readers
several communications on this subject, which
he has received from some of the leading ed
ucators of the land, in answer to interrogato
ries addressed to them by him, in consequence
f our representation to him of the present
condition of the schools in our city.
A CHRISTIAN PARENT."
In your evening issue of the same day, you
noticed this'item of your "morning eotempo
rary," and expressed your deep interest in the
subject proposed for discussion, promising to
watch the course of articles alluded to, and,
as you might findlhem interesting, print•such
of them for the benefit of your readers, as you
might have room to insert in your columns.
My second article for the Patriot and Union
was, however, declined, - in the next morning's
issue, in the following paragraph:
"To COBRESPONDENT3.-It would afford us
much Oaten:ire to acommodate "A Christian
Parent," but he asks more. room than we can
possibly spare in our limited department. The
object he has in view is agood one, but it seems
to us that the proper place to agitate the subject
would be in the meetings of the board of school
directors, who have the matter entirely in
their own hands."
To this I replied, in the next issue, as fol
"Mr. Eorrou.—l am glad to learn that you
approve of the object I have in view in calling
public attention to the defective administra
tion of common school affairs in our city, and
am sorry to learn that the length of my second
communication has deterred" you.. from its
publication. Please assign mo space, how
ever limited; in your columns, and I will en
deavor to keep strictly within. On
limits. Be assured that very many of your
readers feel interested in this tiaestion and
dehire its ventilation. I must beg leave re
spectfully to dissent from the opinion that the
school directors "have the matter entirely'lir
their own hands." Are they not public ser
vants, and responsthle to those who appoint
them to office ? Have we no right to discuss
publicly and freely their mode of administering
the trust confided to them ? You surely spoke
inadvertently, Mr. Editor, and I cannot be
lieve, that, upon reflection, you will exclude
(vim your columns a calm and friendly discus
sion of this topic, so_vital to the interests of
the whole community, and is which every
property holder has a personal stake. If yon
should nevertheless decide adversely to my
wishes, I will be doubly disappointed; for I
perceive that the other daily paper proposes
to transfer at least the substance of my re
marks to its columns, and in that case the
facts and reasonings would reach the readers
of both papers, who are all equally interested,
or ahoulcl-be, in this, which is no party ques
tion. A CHRISTIAN PARENT."
And to this note the Editor appended the
'We repeat, that we regard the object aimed
at by "A Christian Parent as one of4Jae high
est importance, and ,heartily aOl tv 6T lhss
views. Our ordy.objectifbnAMV? o roeat
length of his necond ciniutintdoliti*,lf L in
the discussiotit f:a the subjeCt, he will confine
himself withi&reisonable bounds, our columns
are at his disphial.'
My second communication, however, after
being set up, was ordered by the proprietor
to be set aside ; and now, in his. absence from
town, the editor declines assuming any fur
ther reeponsibilityin the matter.
I turn yon, Mr. Editor, hoping that, if
you will be kind enough to day these well
meant and unpretending statements and re
flections before your readers, the proprietor
of the other journal will soon discover that
there is nothing in them but truth, and just
such truth as the great mass of his readers
desire to blow.
That grand old hero, who was not afraid to
"take the responsibility,", used to delight in
the motto : "Truth is mighty and will_
