Downfall of Republicanism.
Mit. Editor : It is very amuiing in
certain localities, to contrast tho present
aspect of things, flith those that which ex
isted a few days ago. I moan in relation
to our Repuhlican brethren, for such we
can call them now, as the figltt is nearly
all out of them. Then it was from the
"Jlan of War," Gralcy, down to tho least
worshipper of the wooly head. Only wait,
until we get a Man at the helm, then you
will .eo the Southern traitors quail and
quako with fear, when the great six feet
six shall put his "foot down" and say, "I
am Lord of all I survey..'' Then you will
hear thoao traitors call for tho rocks and
mountains to fall on them and hide them
from tho wrath of tho Republicans ; but
even before tho inauguration there was a
great flutlering among them in relation to
the underground Rrailroad trip of Abram
from HarrUburg to Washington, and to
cap tho climax of the wholo matter and I
take out of them the little starch left, was I
the astounding news that Foit Suuipter
wa3 to bo evacuated before tho New Pres
ident was warm in his scat I How chatt
ed. Now they talk aa mild as sucking
doves. General Scott has told them it would
take 10,000 troops to reinforce tho Fort,
and as it is a military question the Presi
dent had nothing to do with it ! This
looks like "recapturing the Forts & retak
ing the sto en property," wo have heard
rio much of recently. These developments,
we aro now passing through, warn us to
give more earnest heed to the Farewell
warning of Washington in relation to tho
establishment of sectional parties. Hop
ing our people may bo more guarded in
future, and pay their first respects to tho
white men of America, I will tresspass no
further upon your columns at prescut.
Two Voiy Useful Clergymen.
The people of tho Bradford district saw
proper toeloct and send to our State Senate
the very Rev. Geoiwe L.vndon ; and tho
peoplo of the Lehigh district faw proper to
tend to tho State Senate the Rev. JeiiEMI.
All SiilNUl.E. These two Rev. gentlemen
have done their best to purify our State,
Treasury by casting out of it a goodly por
tion of tho god of tills world, commonly
called Jlauimon in clerical stylo I These
individuals both voted for the Sunbury &
Eric railroad bill, and for tho Tonnao
'lax swindle. Tha peoplo thould, by all
means, hereafter elect none but clergymen
to represent them at Harrisburg, becauso
they aro such excellent purifiers in a few
years they could wipo the Stato as clean
as any puppy ever licked out a skillet.
By the Sunbury & Eriostwndlo tho Stato
will loso about ga,500.000, at least; and
by tho Tonuago Tnx swindlo, tho Stato
will losa about from ten to 512,000,000.
This is a mighty bad thing for tha Stato,
but of course noboy dare say aught against
it since it has tho sanction both of church
and stato. Get to work now, poor fellows
throughout tbo wholo State; shoulder your
axes and march again to tho woods; hunt
up your old mattocks and go afresh to
grubbing; and in general let everybody
eat less, lccp less, wear less clotken, and
work harder, to pay the extra taxos for
tho -ubliine pleasure of sending such supe
rior rascals to tho Legislature.
SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 30, 1B61
Wohavo for tho past several weeks paid
some attention to tho subject of the late
enormous Swindling optrutivns by tho
Legislature of Pcuujylvania, and this week
give additional extracts, from our exchan
ges, on tho same subject, as will bo seer;
by reference to subsequent columns of tho
"Columdia Demociiat." When the
people's tervanls become corrupt, and be
tray publio confidence, their iniquities
should bo fully exposed, and this duty, how
ever unpleasant, necessarily devolves upon
tho conductors of the Publio Press. In
tho passage of the Sunbury and Erie Rail
road Bill, and tho Repeal of the Tonnage
Tax on the Pennsylvania Railroad, we re
gret to say that a largo number of mera
bors of both branches of tho Legislature
havouttorly forfeited tho confidence of their
constituents aud sealed their political doom
for coming time.
In this category, wo regret to record tho
names of Hiram R. Kline, of Columbia!
Thomas Osterhout, of Wyoming; Wm. IP
Rutler, of Carbon, and Peter F. Eilcnbcr
ger, of Northampton, democratic members
of tho House. Frsnklin Bound, of North
umberland ; Jeremiah Schindlo, of North
ampton; and Kennedy L. Blood, of Jeff
erson, tho first named a Republican, and
tho two last named, Democratic Senators,
H'e sympathise with them, not in their
rascality, but as personal friends, in their
great misfortune, and can only commend
them to the mercy of their injured and be
trayed constituents ; having sown to the
wind, they must expect to reap the whirl
wind. Important Development
'Tho long and short of it is, he was
committed to the passage of tho bills long
before they were brought up for action.
Of this wo aro assured by persons of thu
place who were at Harrisburg for a pro
traded peiiod on Legislative business, aim
in which opinion we are confirmed by thi.
very fact t.iat wiuii.i tha Ia:t -..x weeks Mr.
:h ridel Iu.iim:!.' paid two vi.its to Allen
town for the :.pie-i purpo;e of iufluenuii;.
the Picsd 10 suit.iiii ii.,11 in his couteuiplti
ted iuiquitiou work! His lust crr.tul for
this purpose was ptrfoimed on tho Sim
day before the passago of tho bills. On
this occasion he "sounded" one ol the
publishers of this paper on tho subject,
and met with such a rebuke that his heart
failed him in making the overtures he had
determined upon, and returned to Harris
burg. Iext day one of tho hired lacqueys
of tho Pennsylvania Railroad Company
come on to besot tbo press aud hold out
with an uuspairing hand the temptation oi
lucro. We were offered a largo sum of
money to sustain Mr. Schiudcl ; we took
the mo.nkv, and coneluded to give him
the sustaiuanco lie merits, ana ere this we
suspect ho has found that ho got a bad bite
with good bait. He is doubly guilty of
iniquity, first in giving his votes against
friends, against his instructions, against
public interests and against his better judg
ment, and then seeking to cover up his
sins in effort to corrupt the sentinels upon
the watch towers ottlio psopio ! God knows
it is bad enough that Legislators sap the
pillars of the Commonwealth without their
seeking to corrupt the press, whoe boun-
den duty it is to ttaud by tho interests of
the state. Y hen onco it comes to this,
tho end must bo ruin, inevitable ruin to
society and government. In view of all
this hypocrisy on the part of the Reverend
Senator, docs it appear at all as if he had
bceu led by individual advice. Far
from it. But further. Before lcavincr this
place on tho Monday beforo the passage'of
the bills, lie declared that there was a
great pressuro for his vote, that ho could
communa any sum by giving m to them,
even an high as 830.000, but in the svne
strain asseverated that God should witness
him iti opposition to tho measures, as ho
considered them an outrago upon the tax
payers of tha Commonwealth. Wo have
too little faith in miracles to believe that
uuiuspircd men can transform a vico of
to-uay into a teu-lold virtuo to-morrow, '
The Eas'on Argus, stys :
'I ho foregoing is an extract from an ar
ticle in tho last number of the Allen'.own
Democrat, relative to tho course of Mr.
Sciiindei., and we invito particular atten
tion to the evidenco of corruption which it
discloses. Tho truth is, tho pilo of bricks
is about to fall, and all who havo been
engaged in this swindling business better

had his hand in, it seems to us he ought to
havo mado a clean breast of it, and told
how "largo a sum'1 lie received, and given
tho name of tho "hired lacquey" of the
Railroad Company who paid it. The pub
lio would like to know tho name of the
agent of said company whoso business it
was to bribe editors, senators and mem
bers, so that tho Penitentiary may be made
to claim its own. Wo would like to know
also what ho intends to do with the money.
Wo suggest that he pay it to one of Mr.
Schindel's congregations to employ a high
er priced and better Pastor. He says ho
took tho money, but the question which
greatly concerns tho honor of our friend,
is, did ho not at tho same time agreo with
tho agent to sustain Schindcl 1 Did not the
agent truly report said agreement to Schin
dcl, and would Schiudcl have voted for the
bills had ho not been assured that he would
bo sustained at homo by tho Democrat and
other papers His voto was nceossary to
carry tho bill; without it thero would have
been a tic, and tho bill would havo fallen.
Ho seems to have been sorely tempted, and
to havo had a hard atrugglo between duty
on the one side and something else on the
other. Ho wanted to go for the bill but
feared the just indignation of tho people,
and it nowhero appears that ho finally
agreed to support the Bills until he was
assured that he would rcccivo the support
of some of tho leading papers of his own
county. Dishonor treads close upon the
heels of frailty. If tho Allentown editor
had taken the money and at once tele
graphed or proceeded in person to Harris
burg aud told Schindcl that he had done
so that he would not sustain him, and in
tended to expose tho whulo transaction, ho
would now occupy a different and better
position. He ought immediately to have
communicated the facts to tho Senate, and
it would.havo arrested tho passage of the
Bill ! This hitch in the case at Allcntown
may yet lead to important developments,
A misunderstanding or a quarrel among
rogues is always attended with ugly and
unexpected consequences to themselves and
Tho fraud and bribery practised in tho
original salo of tho public works to tho
bankrupt Sunbury & Erie Railroad Com
pany in 1S57, ought also to be ventilated,
i'hc rascality of that business lead to tho
present deplorable condition of things at
Harrisburg, Tho publio ought to know
who got paid for the passage of that Bill,
cither in money or in Stock at half price.
It is all wrong that a few littlo rascals
should now bo mado tho scape-goats to
carry off the sins of larger ones who plan
ned tho scheme and have pocketed moitof
tho plunder. Let the little and obscure
fellows compel the big ones to share the
responsibility, aud the publio may oxcuso
them in soiuo degree.
In view of our dismembered Union,and
what is now (loin" at Washington and
Harrisburg, it must bo confessed that wo
aie a disgraced people. What man would
like to visit Europe and boast of his gov
ernment aud country as Americans have
been too much in the habit of doing I And
wc fear that wo have not yet seen tho
beginning of tho end. Tho Republicans
met at Chicago and declared for Lincoln
and revolution, and now tho same party
is selling out tho State at Harrisburg.
Corruption of tho most damnable kind
stares one in the face at every point. It
is as shameful as it is disgraceful.
Tub Dclvan House, at Albany, has
presented to tho authorities of New-York a
bill for 51,120, for entertaining Mr. Lin.
coin and his suit for one day. Thoj; only
partook of breakfast and dinner but
among the charges arc 5257 for wines and
liquors, SI 0 for cigars, and 5100 for bun
dry broken articles. How much was old
Abo's Hotel bill in Baltimoro can any
body tell I
