It. seems that Alt. S. Kier°lf, now
doing the editorial for . the Watch
man, and who was formerly the inti
mate friend and supporter of Brick
Pomeroy, has, after sundry twitches
of conscience, caused doubtless by
the advocacy of incorrect principles,
and the studious suppression of the
truth, concluded to ease his mind
by a thorough ventilation of Brick's
rascality. We strongly suspect that
liierolf gave no half-hearted assist
ance in matters which the experience
of years, and a calm and unbiased
judgment, now convince him were
radically wrong. Be' this as it may,
we enter.tain the idea that his book,
now in course of publication, and
which is intended as asthorough ex
pos.? of Brick's villainy, will contain
more truth than poetry. And to
those who prefer truth to fiction, in
the selection of their reading matter,
WO would recommend thislook. It
alt - pear, we believe, under the
title Which heads this article. In
this, and possibly in this -only, does
its author err. We never supposed
that Brick wore a mask. In other
words, we have long been of the
opinion that his villainy was, to
those not wilfully blind, altogether
too evident. Indeed, his rascality
has been so apparent that to us it
has always been a matter of surprise
that his readers could approve of his
course; without at the same time
making the acknowledgment that
for them there is an infatuation in
slang ; in vile and filthy abuse. His
greatest strength ass - a journalist has
been found to consist of a style
which a correct taste must ever de
nounce as despicable. His neatest
efforts have been but the ebulitions
of a mind diseased; while his slimy
utterances were but too sure an in
dication of the corruption existing
within, and what, in the estimation
of his worshippers, constitute his
most commendable efforts but too
clearly distinguish him as an embod
iment oiamoral putrefaction. Kier
olf will doubtless make these facts
patent ;,,to all. We would advise
him, however, to not rely for the
success of his book, upon its novelty,
inasmuch as the Republican party
entire, as well as the more respecta
ble portion of the "so-called" Dem
ocratic party, have long'since been
persuaded of the faCt that Brick is
lost to a sense of common decency;
that he is destitute of morality; and
that his highest gratification is an
inordinate indulgence in the basest
passions known to depraved human
ity. "Like priest, like people," is
an expression which has long been
used to express a traditional belief
in the disposition of multitudes to
follow their leaders. May we not hope
Quit AV% liierolf, now that he ha's
engaged in the ventilating business,
will give full vent to his feelings,and
followßup this effort with an exposi
tion of the once great Democratic
party. his intimate knowledge of
that Party, and its inherent rotten
ness, will, with the ability he evin
ces, justify us in expecting some
thing "rich, rare and racy." Go in,
Kierolf. Give them the truth. It
may be unpleasant to them at first,
but then, you know, they should
aconstom.themselves to it.
ACPZON OF CONGRESS 'UPON lEEE
DEATH OF %HAMMES STEVENS.
On Thursday of last week the
proceedings of Congress were of a
very interesting character. Mr. O.
J. Dickey, the successor of Thaddeus
Stevens, from the Lancaster dis
trict, introduced a series of resolu
tions expressing the sentiments of
the House concerning the death of
Mr. Stevens. In the remarks ac
companying the resolutions, Mr.
Dickey gave a biographical sketch
of the deceased. For this duty he
was eminently fitted ; since, by his
business connections with Mr. Ste
ve:lS', with whom he commenced his
professional lifb, and with whom his
relations are been for years of the
most intimate kind, he was particu
larly well qualified to sneak of his
Virtues. And these are all that
should be remembered of one who
is no more. It too often happens
that the good men do, is buried with
their bones, while the sting of re
proach, and the envy which follows
saecess, live after them. Mr. Dickey
was followed by Poland, of Ver
mont, who represents the District in
which Stevens was born and edu
cated. His remarks were accom
panied by a series of resolutions
adopted by the Legislature of Ver
mont, at their recent session. We
regret onr inability • to furnish each
one of our readers with the entire
proceedings in this matter, as we are
persuaded that they could not fail to
be interested in anything relating to
one, who for so many years has been
regarded as their counsellor in mat :
ters affecting the national welfare.
They have ever regarded him as a
man wedded to principle, loydl to
right and justice, as a bold, brave
leader ; radical, it is true,•but as we
are pleased to believe radically right.
He was called extreme by some
we may say by those who arp al
ways in doubt about the propriety
of adopting new measures, it mat
ters not what the necessity may be
which requires them, nor the emi
nent justice of the measures them
selves. In fact his. opponents were
just such means have never assumed
the .responsibility of inaugurating
anything good, bad or indifferent.
It is a noticeable fact that it mat
tered not what reform was proposed
by Mr. Stevens, how extreme it at
first appeared, or how utterly devoid
of precedent it was, the people, com
mencing with its toleration, soon
came to its adoption ; and in time,
to consider it as one of the essentials
o good government
In the very general expression of
'egret fbr the death of the "Old
Commonor," in eulogizing his mem
ory, and paying tribute to departed
worth, Pennsylvania was represent
ed by Mr. Dickey, of whom we
have spoken above, and by Messrs.
Moorhead, Kelly, Broomall, Miller,
Koontz, Cake, Woodward, and Co
vod e. Mr. Maynard spoke for Tenn
essee, Messrs. WTood and Robinson
for New York, Ashley for Ohio,
Orth for Indiana, Donnelly for Min
nesota, Whittemore for South Car-.
olina, and Sypher for Louisiana. In
these efforts, each speaker tried to
outdo, it possible, all who had pre
eeeded him, in, beauty of expression,
in manly sentiment, and in charita
ble feelings for past differences,
where they had existed. This is
right ; it shows the bright side of
human nature, and fosters in us, a
pride in our humanity. The death
of Mr. Stevens is truly a subject of
national grief ; and happy indeed
will be our people, if amongst those
who come after him there will be
found .one worthy to wear his
