What's the matter with the RepnWicans ?
Go where yon may, if by chance yon meet
one or more Republicans, you will find that
there is something wrong by the talk you
hear.' They will have something to say
about Union men and traitors ; always,
though, insinuating that the Democrats
have charged them personally or their party
with being traitors to their country and the
lavrg. And by a short conversation you will
be able to leam that they are terribly w win

Alluding to the valorous threats of the
coercion section of the Black-Republican
parly, the Albany Evtning Journal, whose
editor may be supposed to know them well,
quietly reminds them of their fondness for
words rather than blows : -
"The cheapest and the thinnest kind of
patriotism is that which costs nothing. So,
loo, with that species of courage which,
out of danger, vapors and swaggers. Of
the army of aboliiionists'whn have for so
man' years been teaching war and rapine,
(on paper ) not one of them ever faced their
enemy. When heroic John Brown,- acting
upon the principles so many professed, lay
in prison awaiting execution, what aboli
tionists went to his rescue ?"
The braggarts who discourse most elo
quently in favor of coercion will keep their
precious bodies out of sight should bullets
begin to fly.
Opposed to Adjustment.
The unyielding temper manifested by the
Republican party in Congress is fast wear
ing out the patience of the most conserva
tive Southern men. The venerable Crit
tenden, begins to despair, and Mr. Rust,
of Arkansas, who has labored hard in behalf
of adjustment is filled with disgust, and ex
presses the opinion that the Republican
members are averse to all settlement. Ten
of the Virginia Congressmen have sent an
address to the people of their State, :n
which they say, "it is vain to hope for any
measures of conciliation and adjustment
from Congress, w hich the people of Virginia
could accept." Truly we have fallen on
evil men. Can the people of the North
endure much longer the reign of their
Black Republican politicians?
The Executive and both branches of the
Legislature being now in the hands of the
Republicans, the people of Pennsylvania
will hold them td strict accountability for
all they say and do during the "resent win
ter. They cannot shirk it now. The des
tinies of the Commonwealth, says the Lan
caster Intelligencer, for weal or for woe, are
entrusted to them, and they cannot, if they
would, throw the responsibility upon the
Democratic party. There is no dodging, on
their part, of the important questions of
State and National policy which bare aris
en or will arise during the year upon which
we hare entered. They will have to "face
the music," and must hereafter give an ac
count of their stewardship to the people.
Pennsylvania, from her central location
and her untold agricultural, mirferal and
manufacturing resources, occupies an im
portant and prominent position in the Con
federacy, and her potential voice, if prop
erly expressed, will go very far to save our
beloved Union from the perils which sur
round it. Let her Governor and her Legis
lature, for the time being, throw aside party
trammels and "irrepressible conflict" plat
forms, and let them unite with their fellow
citizens in holding out the olive branch of
peace to the South, and all may yet be well;
but let them pursue the opposite policy, and
no gift of prescience will be needed to tell
the consequences to the State and the Na
tion. : -
We are pleased to record the fact, that the
new Executive, so far as he has adumbra
ted his policy, is disposed to be conserva
tive and conciliatory. If he is sincere in
what he says, and his own party friends in
the Legislature carry out his suggestions, it
will be well, and we shall be prompt to
give them credit for their good . actions.
But we distrust these professions of tie Re
publican leaders, and shall wait with pa
tience to see how far they may be realized

questions that should engage the attention

To show the hostile feeling existing at
the North, cannot be more plainly illustra
ted than by a few extracts from a book enti

That Slave-holders must emancipate the
negroes or we will emancipate them for

king advantage of their Southern brethren,
have in direct violation of the Constitution,

Mr. Cameron said the Senator from Vir
ginia seemed to be anxious for an excuse
to leave the Union. He had vote J as he
did becanse be saw no disposition to Com
promise on the other side unless we went
to them on our bended knees) and asked
forgiveness. He should ask no forgiveness,
because he had done no wrong He was wil
ling to forgive the backsliding of the South,
and do all he could to preserve the Union,
but he was not to be dragooned or driven.
He was the peer and equal of :he Senator
Mr. Mason said he was unconscious of
having said anything to arouse the wrath
of the Senator of Pennsylvania. He did
not want an excuse for leaving theUnion.
He had seen to-day six Senators take for
mal leave, and he knew the Union was dis
solvedabsolutely dissolved. The Sena
tors may not recognize the dissolution, but
that does not alter the fact. Those States
are gone, and the chairs of their represen
tatives are vacant. What is the remedy ?
CoerchV? Shall we use the discipline
that the pedagogue inflicts on the uichin at
school? The Constitution is against coer
cion ; humanity . and the civilized world
are against it- We cannot make war un
less we change the laws, and we cannot
change the laws unless we violate the Con
stitution. But the question of peace or war
was in the hands of the majority. The
South deplored war because of the conse
quences, and not from fear ; and if she was
forced into the war, then there would be
such a conflict as the world has never seen.
The only excuse he wanted was now to
remain in the Union, and would to God that
the Senator of Pennsylvania could give him
6uch ao excuse.
Mr. Cameron said he had not heard of
any threa's of war from his State, but it it
must come, Pennsylvania will be ready to
meet it. The people of his State were
ready to do anything honorable to save the
Union. They were willing to yield all pre
judices. But tho North has committed no
aggression or wrong, and you can't drive
them by bullying them. If you want the
Union preserved, let us know what wrong
we can redress, and we will redress it.
Mr. Saulsbury said he looked upon the
remarks of the Senator from Pennsylvania
as an omen of good. He believed ihat the
Senator was sincere, and though four or
five Stales have Jeft us, if the Senators on
this side now meet the Pennsylvania Sena
tor in the same spirit, the Union will btill
remain. He invoked the Senators all to
imitate the spirit of the Senator from Penn

i Dsatli of Capl. C&rence n. Frick.
It is with sentiments ( of the deepest re
gret, that we announce to the public the
decease of our estimable friend and fellow
citizen, Cap.. C. H. Prick, which .took
place on Monday morning last. - v- '
The subject of this notice, the son of our
townsman, George A. Frick, Esq, was born
in this place on the 17th of April, 1818,
and at the time of hi dath was aged 42
years, 6 months, and 4 days. , , ,
. At an early. age he received, an intellect
tual training in the Danville Academy. , Af
ter finishing his stadies there he commen
ced the study of Medicine under Dr. Wm.
H. Magill, and attended lectures atthe Jef-
fierann YTlisnl C.nllaaa nf PhilaHAtnhSa. (
and subsequently graduated from that insti
tution with distinction and honor. From
this time onward, he pursued the practice of
his profession in our midst with marked
skill and success, until the Mexican war
brole out, when in obedience to the call ot
his country he volunteered his services to
defend the honor and flag of our nation on
foreign 6oil. He was commissioned as First
Lieutenant in Company C, (Columbia
Guards) Capt. John S. Wilson.
This Company departed for the seat of
war December 29ih, 1846, and landed at
Vera Cruz, and took an active part in the
reduction of that City. After the capture
of this stronghold, Capt. Wilson was swept
off by disease, and Lieut. Frick was pro
moted to the command of the Company,
and served in that capacity to the end of
the war. They took part in the battle of
Cerro Gordo, and in the mors desperate en
gagement of Cbapultepec, where Capt.
Frirk and his Company gained unfading
laurels in storming the "imminent deadly
breach," and in being among the first to
plant the "old battalion flag of Columbia
county" on the ramparts of the Castle, the
key to the City, of Mexico. Subsequent to
this the Commander of the American forces
recognized the merits of this Company by
assigning to them the "post of honor" at
San Augustine. They were also at the cap
ture of the City ot Mexico, and assisted to
plant the Sur-Spar.gled Banner on the far
famed Halls of the Montezumas. Alter
peace was declared Capt. Frick returned to
Danville with about thirty of his men, in
cluding recruits, and never did the citizens
of this Borough evince more patriotic fervor
and gratitude, than when they welcomed
back to their homes thm little decimated
band of war-worn veterans.
Two years had wrought great changes
Instead of the gar laugh, bright eyes and
stalwart bearing that marked them in going
they returned with faltering step and under
mined constitutions, the fruits of exposure
and an inhospitable climate. Capt. Frick
was among those who suffered most. All
that medical art and kind friends could do
would not arrett the disease that had fatt
ened upon him. During the year of 1854
he had an attack of paralysis, which par
tially disabled him, since which time his
system more rapidly gave way, until a
complication of diseases terminated in con
sumption and death. ,
Dr. Frick was a genial, accomplished,
honorable and high-minded gentleman, re
spected by all. who. knew him. He was
the conscientious physician, the courageous
soldier, the public spirited citizen, the lov
ing husband, indulgent father and warm-
His funeral took place on Wednesday

after which Rav. Mr. Torrence, delivered

Why is there no disposition manifested
by the Republican members ot Congress to
make such concessions as will lead to a
satisfactory termination of tbe difficulties of
the nation?; Why is it that they are not
simply idle, but oppose the adoption oft
such measures as will reach the exigencies
of the case ? There can be but one answer:
Mr. Lincoln is against all suitable compro
mises in a word he is, in our opinion, for
war. This is the only conclusion that think
ing men can arrive at, in view ol the fact
fiat had Mr. Lincoln -been disposed, he
coskl have long sinced exercised upon his
party friends in Congress just the kind of
influence which the condition of the coun
try demanded. It was stated before the
secession of South Carolina, that when Mr.
Lincoln was urged to issue a manifesto to
assure the South of the Pacific intention of
his administration, he declined, on the
ground that it vould have no effect in re
straining the secession of that State, that
being already determined upon. But this
was not the case with the other States that
followed the example of South Carolina,
inasmuch as it was docbtful whether they
would secede at all, provided that concilia
tory measures were adopted by the north.
Therefore there was no reason for the si
lence of Mr. Lincoln, so far as regarded
those States. Congress met in December,
more than a month before these latter States
seceded, bu: no proper efforts were made
by the Reptlblicans to stay secession,
neither have they been made up to this pe
riod. If Mr. Lincoln was for peace and not
war if he held the opinion expressed by
Mr. Seward, that party platforms should, if
necessary, be sacrificed to save the Union
why did he not, at the earliest moment
after the meeting of Congress, suggest to
his Republican adherents the necessity of
at once adopting measures to arrest seces
sion and preserve the Union from falling
into its present lamentable condition? If
he had done this, it would have exercised
a magic influence upon his followers, most
of whom waited only for him to give the
key-note. But we have reason to believe,
in the absence of the exercise of such in
fluence, that he early made up his mind,
surrounded as he was by the worst of influ
ences, to uphold the doctrines of the fanat
ical portion of his party, if it should peril
the continuance of ihe Union. We believe,
then, that Mr. Gheklev truly represents
him in saying that he will make no con
cessions, nor favor any compromises, which
will be sufficient to save the Union and
avert the horrors of civil war ; and that this
accounts for the course of his Iriends in
Congress. What, then, can we expect but
war, on the incoming of the next Adminis
tration, unless satisfactory measures are
adopted previous to that time1 If this be
not done without delay, all hopes of peace
may as well be abandoned. The incoming
Administration will be antagonistic to tbe
South, and the South will be antagonistic
to it. This condition of things, unless pro
vided against, will beget war there can be
no reasonable doubt of it. In the language
of Mr. Fillmore, uttered four years ago, in I
his speech at Albany New York, in veiw of
, . i u vi r .i
the existence and probable success of the
Republican party, in electing their Presi-
denlial candidate, "we are treadinding on
the brink of a volcano, that is liable al any

direction this time. Tho most certain evi

everything looks green to its eyes. Verily,

right side if you are opposed to the Tribune.
And Simon has good reason to congratulate
himself that be is no longer endorsed by
old Greely, or his clique ; he is well rid of
a moral pest. Carbon Democrat.'
A Short Chapter of History. The Re
publican speakers are accustomed to say
that ihe exclusion of slavery from the Ter
ritories was the policy of tbe fathers of tbe
Republic. This is one of the favorite and
stereotyped declarations of Horace Griclkt.
He endeavors assiduously to effect the
lodgement ot this idea in the public mind,
so as to impress the belief that the Repub
lican leaders aim to carry out tbe policy of
Washington, Jcffcrson, Madison, and those
other great statesmen who shed lustre on
our early history. The constant repetition
of this falsehood hal won many believers
in the free States, and in the obstinate refu
sal of the Republicans to settle on a con
stitutional basis tbe question of slavery in
the Territories, we are now reaping some
of the fruits of this pernicious fallacy. An
article in the Boston Courier of a late date,
deals wtih this matter in a very clear and
satisfactorily manner, .and revives some
