Negro schools sustained by the govern
ment t Where do the United States authori
ties gul the power to take money out of the
treasury to educate negro children ? How
can they use the people's money, for such
a purpose ? Verily, these are slrange times,
when that provision of the Constitution (or
any ether) which says no money shall be
taken from the treasury except by appro
priations made by law, is wautonly violated.
Have we no Constitution to guide 03 ? no
law but the will of the Administration 1 no
checks upon the action oi those whom we
have elected as our official agents to con
duct the affairs of our government! Are
our lives and fortunes at the mercy of des
pots and fanatics, who thirst for blood, and
cravo wealth and. power? Are our rights
and liberties set aside to build up an inferi
or race of beings ? Then, indeed, is revo
lution justifiable, a jevGluiion to establish
a Constitution, and make laws, and secure
our liberties, "Resistance to tyrants is obe
dience to God." II these things be true,
then the time for snbmueiou is already
passed, and the boor for the people to move
for their deliverance from the edicts of ty
ranny, at hand.
Nt gro children educated by the govern
ment t If the government has money to
spare for this purpose when her fair fields
are deluged with the blood of her children,
and when she is groaning under the debt
and misery entailed upon her by a fanati
cal abolition war, in the name of Heaven,
are there no cMle children 10 educate, whose
advancement ia knowledge would be an
honor to the country and a benefit tq, the
race ? Is the negro the protege of this gov
ernment, upon which it must lavish all its
car, and squander the people's money ? Is
he better than our children, that they must
be neglected, despised, their God-given
rights trodden-under foot, their own free
government, given them as a heritage by
our fathers, taken from them, to liberate,
and fondle, and educate him? Are we

Where did Old Abe get the right to make
State laws for Southern people ? In his
Proclamation he says they may come back
whenever one-tentb of the number who
voted for President in 1860 take the Aboli.
tion oath he prescribes. They may then
form a State gorernment and come back
into the Union under the blessings of the
old rail-splitter. -
What a good thing for the Sonthern peo
ple that they have so wise and eminent a
mm as Abraham Lincoln, to watch over
their destinies, &c , &c, who first discover
ed that "it is easier to pay a small debt than
a .large one," and otherwise equally
"chunks of gold J" And he was the firM
oteofhia family that discovered what a
tariff was ! And if he didn't know while on
his Toad to the national capital whether it
the tariff was an animal of the ground'
hog species or like "the beautiful bird they
cull the bear," that's co body's business,
h i learned what it was soon after he got
there ; and that was doing very weil, taking
into consideration that he went by way of
Bat about the mercy shown the people
of the South by this proclamation : It will
be such a good thing for them to have Abo
lition State Governments! All the Aboli
tionists have to do is to .- emigrate a few
Lend red fanatics from the North to some
tafe points in each of the States mentioned,
which, with the aid of niggers and Govern
Kent bayonets, can easily cast one tetitb cf
the votes thrown for Presideat in i860.
Then it will be a good, I'loyal government;"
the niggers will be equal . to white men,
and white men equal to niggers, audall
will be so happy ! provided there are no
Bogus Union Conventions Down South.
It makes honest Union men indignant
when they read the resolutions of the Con
ventions in Louisiana and Florida which
are sought to be passed off as expressions
ct revived Sonthern loyalty. The fact of the
cijger being allowed to sit on terms of per
fect equality with the white man in these
gatherings is in itself sufficient to expose
their real character. They are made up not
of Southern men, but of the cormorants

The AoJiior General's Report, on the Fi
nances of she Commonwealth of Pennsyl
vania, for the year ending November 30th,
1863, shows the valuation of Real and Per
sonal Estate of Columbia county, as fixed
by the Revenue Commissioners at their
last tri ennial mee:ing,to be $3 260,273, with
an assessment of lax upon the same, in
cluding the half mill tax per Act May 19th,
1861, of $9,956,94. ,TLe entire population
of the county is set down at 24,603 and the
taxable inhabitants at 5,809. On the 30ih
of November the amount of tax paid by
Columbia county to the State Treasurer, en
real and personal estate, was $7, 951 36 ;
besides our special tax of one half mill on
the dollar was promptly handed over by
the County Treasurer, James S. McNinch,
which wasSl.447.12. The Tavern Licenses,
for the past year, were $712.50; and the
Retailers' Licenses amounted to $708,50
The Distillery and Brewery licenses in this
j County do not amount to a great deal, only,
the past year, to $2,25.
- The tax on the Eating and Beer Hous es,
throughout the county, sum up in the ag
gregate, to a much larger figure. The
amount paid State last year for this pur
pose is SI 60,68. The tax on Writs, Wills,
Deeds, etc., paid by Daniel Lee, late Reg
ister and Recorder of Columbia county,
amounted to $161-63; and that paid by
Jacob Eyerly, tben Prothonotary of the co.,
Si 14.72. The whole amount paid State,
so far as we have traced the matter, is Si 1,
308,56. This is quite a snug sum of money
for little Columbia to pay as taxes for one
year. Her accounts on the State Books
will compare favorably at all times with
those of any other county in the Slate.
The resident Dcconnees bis Own Action,
The discussion of political matters in
Louisiana between the Democrats and the
imported abolitionists and negroes has
brought oat a letter that was written by Mr.
Lincoln in November 1862, to General
Sheplet, in regard to the election of mem
bers of Congress from that State. The letter
like a4 speech once made by Mr. Lincoln
in Congress, on the right of a people to rev
olutionize and set up a government for
themselves , is a severe criticism upon hi
own action. It is a little singular how
''pressure" acts upon our "Jacicsonian"
President, ft seems that he was "con
strained" to do in the last Kentucky elec
lion, and at other times and places recently,
what he pronounced in 1862 to be a dis
graceful and outrageous action, and a deed
that be would vote to condemn, if he were
a member of Congress. "Consistency thou
art a jewel." Here is the letter which we
copy from the Cincinnati Gazette, aa aboli
Executive Mansion, )
Washington, November 21. 1862 f
G. F. Shepley :
Dear Sir : Dr. Kennedy, bearer of this,
has some apprehension that Federal offi
cers, not citizens ok. Louisiana, may be set
up as candidates for Congress in that State.
In my view there could be no possible ob
ject in such an election. We do not par
ticularly need members of Congress from
there to enable us to get along withjlegisla
lion here. What we do want is the conclu
sive evidence that respectable citizens of
Louisiana are willing to be members of
Congress and to swear support to the Con
stitution ; and that other respectable citizens
there are willing to vote for them and send
them. To send a parcel of Northern men
as representatives, elected as would be un
derstood (and perhaps really so) at the
point of the bayonet, would be disgracefol
and outrageous : and were I a member of
congress here, 1 would vote against admit
ting any 6uch man to a seat.
Yours, verjr truly,
"What's in tnc Wind."
Although not distinctly announced, ye t it
is pretty clearly shadowed forth in the Men
tour American of this jveek, that an "unholy
alliance" is about to be formed between in
two Republican journals of this place the
American and the Democrat. This onion 0
American Know-Nothingism, and Repub
licanism, is by no means unnatural. Th
natural affinities of these, the two most cor
rupt and baleful political isms that ever cur
Bed this or acy other nation, would of course
lead them to coalesce, whenever coalsscence
would further their wicked designs of attain
ing or retaining political power. Hour infer
ence from what we see in the American re
spec ting tue proposed union of these two
papers be correct, then we may expect the
fruits of this amalgamation will be concen
trated Abolitionism. 'Danville Intelligen-

that they represent a constituency of 800,

the loyal league clube of the North could
not muster 10,000 men for any political
purpose wbaterer. They only exist in
few of the large cities, and are composed of
shoddy contractors and their hangers on
who are of very little account in political
circles. Mr. Lincoln would do a wise and
popular act if be promptly showed these
people the door. The voters of the country
have elected their representatives, whom
the chief magistrate of the country cart find

armed with revolvers, and demanded bis

In the Senate, resolutions of thanks to
Generals Hooker and Burnside were report
edack from the Committee, and one thank
ing Gen. Thomas was introduced.
A resolution was introduced by Mr. Hale
ordering an investigation of naval steam
engines. Mr. Hale wished the investiga
tion because a Mr. Dickinson had made
charges against the Navy Department. Mr.
Doolittle thought it would do more harm
than good. Mr. Conness thought so too,
and did not like the way in which Haleand
Davis of Kentucky had been opposing iho
Administration. Mr. Hale denied that h
marie wholesale charges against, the Ad
ministration. Mr. Davis said he had op
posed the great lion of the Hermitage, and
was not afraid of the jackalls of the present
day whatever they might threaten. He in
tended to investigate and expose every
fraud of the Administration. Doolittle re
plied that he deplored Mr. Hale's conduct
and as far as Mr. Davis "he opposes every
thing and proposes nothing." He did not
deny that there jere frauds. Mr. Grimes
admitted that there were frauds in the Na
The debate quickly became very acrimon
ious, and Mr. Davison Jan. 5th having in
troduced a resolution that "the people of
the North ought to revolt against their war
leaders and take this great matter into their
own hands.i' Mr. Wilson, of Massachus
etts, moved a resolution reciting this and
declaring that by it Davis advised the peo
ple to "treasonable, insurrectionary and re
bellious action" and was guilty of a gross
violation of the privileges of the Senate, for
which he should be expelled.
Davis and Wilson then got at it fiercely,
but without Eettlingthe matter, the resolu
tion was laid over and the Conscription bill
taken up. The Senate adjourned without

"The Age or Pdritv." The Washington
correspondent of the Journal of Commerce,
says great "indignation is being expressed"
at the discovery that the editor of the Wash

ing, for the lastthree years, a salary of3l200,
as "messenger in the folding-room," a
place which it is said he never visited !
Mr. Forney's paper is filled with virtuous
homilies on honesty and patriotism, and
this is the way he carries out his precepts.
Verity Washington has become as bad as
Solom and Gomorrah ! Iniquity of every
kind is flourishing in that once respectable

It is so called because it leaps over a day
more than a common year ; thus, in com-

more bachelors commit matrimony than in
any oi the other three, and for this several
reasons have been assigned. Caring nothing
about reasons, we hope the ball may com

Terrible Death. Robert Quick, an aged
citizen of Rush township, Northumberland
county, met his death ia a dreadful manner
one day last week. He bad gone into his
stable to bridle a vicious horse, when the
animal attacked him, siezed him by the
arm and broke it in three places, and
finally trampled him to the earth where be
was discovered by a little girl, who imme
diately gave the alarm to some boys work
ing in the neighborhood. The boys not
daring to euter the stable, where the fero
cious beast and bis victim were, formed a
loop on a rope and by the aid of a pitch
fork, managed to fasten it to the leg of Mr.
Quick, and by this means dragged the body
to the door, the horse frantically followed to
the length of his tether. When rescoed,
Mr. Q. was found to be entirely lifeless. It
is but a year or two since we chronicled
the death cf Mr. John Blue in a similar
manner. i ersons ceaung witn vicious

IATE WAR NEWS.
There is but one thing definitely known,
the state of affairs ic the Shenandoah Valley,
and that is that the people who send news
from that quarter, have a very indistinct
idea of what they are writing about. For
the past thres or four days we have received
the most coitradictory statements. That
the Confederates are there we have no
doubt, and ihy have advanced as far north
as Winchester. The Federal authorities at
Harper's Ferrjr and Cumberland are in a
great state ol excitement, and it appears
that the Confederates contemplate a raid on
the latter place. They can readily do this un
less the cold weather and enow prevent it ;
for by avoiding Harper's Ferry they entirely
neutralise nine-tenths of the Federal force
opposed to them, Cumberland is west of
Harber's Ferry, and Staunton is west of
Winchester, The enemy appear to have
approached near Cumberland but subse
quently to have retreated lo Staunton.
They have also been making great havoc
among the wagon trains in that neighbor
hood. There is nothing kown yet however
of their real object.
From Texas we . have, at length, the
reason why all the Federal troops have
been idle. The Confederates are concen
trating their forces in Central Texas, and
intend to attack Matagorda Bay. They
have an army of twenty thousand men, and
and there appears to be great anxiety in the
Federal camp as Gen. Banks' available force
is scarcely able to cope with them. Im
portant news is anticipated from Texas by
the next arrival.
General Meade's army is still quiet. Two
or three nighi. ago the guerillas made their
appearance at Fairfax, but disappeared
after a short contest. There are fourteen
hundred men required to manage the rail
road which supplies the army. General
Hancock, it is reported, has been ordered
to Washington and General Warren takes

The Government decided some time since
that it was treason to hold your peace and

nation difficulty. They profess great loyal

our great men. The first thing that a true

noble nusims, he has nqr-further right to

publican officials, are daily being develop

knows how much more) and who excuses
