Republican member of Congress from'
Pennsylvania, admittod, in tho IIouso on
Monday, that ho was not in favor of re
storing the Constitution and tho Union, if
slavery was to bo maintained also.
This is tho cry of tho Abolitionists
from all quarters, and of overy stripo and
figuro of tho Republican organization, and
of the traitor Democrats who havo sold
out to tho frco negro concern. ''No Con
stitution as it is, no Government as it
was,'' is tho watchword of tho Abolition
elans from Maino to Kansas. Wo rejoice
that they havo at last been smoked out.
Wo now havo a clear field and an open
contest, and "ho who runs may road."
We shall havo no more dodging, beat

who votes hereafter will know what lie is
voting for and against. If ho i3 for tho

Special Congressional Election.
The special election for a member of Con
gress in tho Bucks and Lehigh district, to
fill tho vacancy caused by the death of
Dr. Cooper, will be hold next Saturday,
May 24th. The Democrats have nomina
ted John D. Stiles, of Lehigh, and tho Re
publicans Gcorgo Lear, of Bucks.
Tbishas always been regarded as a
close and doubtful district. In the full of
1858, it elected Henry 0. Longneckcr,
Republican. At tho election of 1800, Dr.
Cooper beat Longneckcr 143 votes out of
a poll of 21,383. Both parties aro exer
ting themselves to carry tho dutrict on the
4th inst. Our Domocratio friends appear
confident of success.
Hon. CnARLFs Jared Inqersoll died
in Philadelphia on tho 14th inst,, in tho

1815, and from 1841 to 1847. After his
retirement from Congress, in 1815, Pres
ident Madison appointed him United States
District Attorney in Philadelphia, in
which capacity ho served for a long peri
od. Ho was an able Constitutional Law-
jer, and a fine scholar. Ilia most ambi

his famo as an author rests, is a "History

The pair of sap-hoads who chuckcl over

William II Keim, lato Surveyor General
of this Stato, died of a combined attack of

House, in Harrisburg; on Sunday last, in
tho 49th year of his ago. Gen. Keim held
tho position of Major General of tlio Penn

by tho Prcsideut, which ho accepted, and

A Just Triute. Gen. McClcllan's re

ing his detractors to their knees. On Fri
day last, Mr. Lovcjoy offered, and tho
Houso adopted a resolution tondoring sin
cere thanks to Gen. McClellan for tho
display of those high militarti aualitics
which secure important results with but
utile sacrifice of human life. What an
exalted tributo is this to tho military skill
and tho humanity of tho Commanding
General, and what a rebuke to the faction
which attempted to displace him from the
command of tho army. Tho country can
now bco tho brilliant fruits of mouths of
tedious preparation in organizing tho ar
my and fitting it for tho achievement of
these glorious results ; and while thanking
tho commanding General, it cannot but
admire his wonderful courage aud palienco
undar assaults that would have unnerved

despising the cabal engaged in tho plot to

doubtless, havo been greater, but for the

of negro's wool, and a doctor's girdle about
his loins: aud his moat was tho lltpulli

5. Then went out to him tho Republi
cans of Bloom, and all tho Know Nothings
of Cattawissi, aud all tho Abolitionists in
tho region round about Millvillo,

Republican, thereby confessing their sins,
7. But when ho saw many of tho office
seekers and turn coat Democrats come to

8. Bring forth thorcforo votes meet for

for I say unto you, that I am able of these

man who hath not shown himself to bo a

ho will scourgo you from high places, aud

to Bloomsburg uuto John, to bo instructed

15. And William answering said unto
him, suffer it io Ic so now ; for thus it be
comcth us to fulfil our master Greeley's
will. Then ho suffered him.
1G. And William, when ho was fully in

follows havo had a hankcrinc after sonio .
sort of a secret organization so contrived MayS4, iE02-3t
as to invest a small circle of insido mana
gers with tho power of making nominations
and distributing offices and patronage.
They imagined that thoy had struck tho
righ vein when thoy organized tho "Loyal
League'' and seleted Ilosca Carpenter as
tho proper instrument to go about tho
Stato organizing lordges nc fivo dollars
each. But to their utter confusion, aftor
Mr. Capron had exhausted his ingauuity
in drafting a constitution to deprive tho
uususpecting mases of tho privilego of
choosing whom they would elect to office,
and lo sccuro that power to a select cliquo
of managing politicians to their uttor con
fusion thoy discovered that thoy had en
trusted tho secret to a leaky vessel, and
thattha Patriot and Union, and through
it the public, becamo awaro of tho dirty
conspiracy in whioh they wcro engaged.
Confused, but not dismayed at this expo
sure, they tried to wrigglo out of the trap
in which thoy had caught themselves-
somo boldly denied tho csisteonco of tho
now order, othor3 admitted and justified it,
and others, agaiu, tried to look sweetly
iunoeont and ignorant.
It will bo recollected that there was a
mectiug of Repjbliean editors hero last
winter. Not long after, tho "Loyal
Leaguo'' made its appearance, and was
exposed to merited contempt Now we
havo another meeting of Republicans ed
itors, and it is fair to conoludo that somu
secret des'gn was set on foot. Wo don't
pretend to guess what it was. It may havo
been merely a meeting of mutual condo
lence or it may havo boon for the purpose
of reprimanding tho Telegraph for disclo
sing tho secret of tho "Loyal League"
or to raiso funds to enable Ilosca Carpen
ter to find out where "Ann live aud travels"
or to compel tho plunder-patriots to
subscribe largely to tho Ropublioan party
to carry the next election or to petition
tho government for the suppression of'Dem-
ocratic newspapers or to select candidates
for Auditor General or Surveyor General.
The meeting may have been for ono of
these purposes or for something else equally
objectionable ; but a3 it wai conducted
with all possible sccreoy, wo may ha cer
tain that it was for somo purposo that
would not bear the light of day.
