Jht Republican of last week, in an' item
alout the Staii, referred to an article in our
sheet of the lilih oil., as an emanation from
a canting hypocrite," while it chose to
speak in favorable terms of the leading edi
torial of the sums sheet. Now, while we
are at all times opposed to handling dirty
things, we shs.ll give the dr. a little notorie
tyin our colornns, in a calm and trnthfnl
manner, portraying for his benefit and the
information of the people, in a generous
war, oar belie f that' hypocrisy and deceit
lie, if " any where among the pnblic jour
nals of thi county, in 1 the sanctum of the
Republican editor.. The first charge of
which we plead guilty is that our paper ,
appeared in nsooming over the death of our
late President.- In connection with this,
let as state that it was remarked by a citi
zen of this town on the streets, when the
subject of hanging out the American-flae
waa spoken of, that it mattered not wheth
er we, Democrats, made a display of our
sadaess or not. because the vindictiveness
and malice of the Republicans of this town
were se great that if we rejoiced with them
they were mad, if we did not rejoice they
were mud, aid it was probable if we
mourned with ihern they would be mad ;
which saying has been satisfactorily shown
To be true. Dr. p. john rages because the
first symbol of raooroir.g came from the
opposition, and an inveterate leader of the
Provost Guard who was nsed as a py to
point oat law-abiding and patriotic citizens
of this county, of whom to make victims of
decpo ism, declared oa the street in front
of the Exchange Hotel, that the flag there
hanging, draped, ought to be torn dawn, for
it was pat op by.c'a set of G d d m cop
perheads." And eot only was this inclina
tion of Republicans shown here, but at va
rious and masy places in the country. Io
Philadelphia a band of lawless Republicans
assembled about the Age office, declaring
their determination to raze the building be
caose the proprietors of that office deemed
it proper to make public their feelings over
the tragical death of the late Chief Magis
trate. But the rule of our paper were
turned, and that leading editorial of which
the dr. speaks was inserted after the perpa
.ration ot this malicious conduct, of which
we bad full knowledge. Abraham Lin
coin was the Preeidentof the whole people;
we a9 citizens of this once proud and great
na'.ion, felt that in the assassination of the
Chief Magistrate a stroke was made not at
Mr. Lincoln as an individual, but at the Ex
ecutive, with tie intent of striking down in
one lawless and mad attempt the iniezrity
and permanency of the Government Thus
viewing the affair, it was the solemn con
viction of every patriot that the occasion
was one ol great calami'y, cillin:j forth their
earnest condemnation, and a fit tune for
the nation to monrn. ft was not meet for
us when the lifeless body of Mr Lincoln
was lying in slate to call up his ma!-ad
ministration, bis total disregard of the Con
stitutionhis tyrannical acts, by which sev
eral citizens of Columbia cennty were mat.
dsred, and hundreds more throughout the
country. No, but feeling the weight of the
dark cloud that hong over the nation,
brought npon us by the fiendish act of an
assassin, we cast onr prejudices aside for
the lime being, and called sadness to comfort-
as in considering the unprecedented
disgrace into which a Tew individuals had
cast the conntry. This, we venture to say,

closely the murder of Joseph Shaw, the

in view of many other instance cf violaace
against i; offensive citizens that have recent

lence and riot were about to be inaugurated.
We tope, however, that the good sense of
our communities will not suffer this system
of violence to prevail. We have just passed
the ordeal of a terrible civil war. and it is
time that the people should have, acme

In all these canes of mob violence, it is
observable that Democrats are invariably
the victims. Let it not be supposed tbat
the Democracy are to be cowed down by
anv such cowardly persecution. INo man
of courage will ever be found leagued with
a mob to insult and teal a citizen for his

But now, we are brought to the article ot
which the dr. says the writer is "a canting
hypocrite." In this article there is not a
single word ia derogation of the leading
editorial.. It is in ex3Ct correspondence in
sentiment and tone. We particularly avoid
ed allcding to the late President's adminis
tration for the reasons given above. But
we stated some plain facts, in plain words,
wbich seem to hnrt the dr and others ol hts
reviling clan, because they reflect opon the
honor Aonor ? do, ihe infamy of .the Re
publican party, honor is not knowain the

an J secret plots cf the Union League of
their horde of petty depots. First, we as
serted, they were incited to madness curung
'cfppfrAeads" and that their xpreJ5i"ons and
actions were indicative of riot. This the dr.
has not attempted to deny, and eannot suc
cessfully. We know the assertions to be
true in every particular, and though they
are opprobrioun and hateful in their Lcyal
bosom, when fcnotcn to the public, they moat
remain in that party, the originators of mal
ice and the perfidious instigators of rebel
lion. We can call to their minds the names
of individuals engaged in thia degrading
talk, if need te ; and though a notorious
Leaguer, wbo desired -lo be the leader of a
party to 'tretch" some Democrats of this
place, is not a citizen pf TJloomsburg, yet
many oi our neighbors are equally guilty.
The lying despatches received on the day
of which Mr. Lincoln's death was announc
ed, stating that at Washington New York
ar.d other places "Copperheads were hang
ed" for expreMing joy over the "death of
the President, were received with acclama
tions of pleasure by many of the League
patriots. A sitigle individual of their party,
thoogh we scarcely believe a member of
the League, hiid sufficient manliness to re
prove them by saying, 4tif that is true it is
a worse feature than Ihe death of the Presi
dent." To hirn we give credit and pro
nounce him a ijentleraan worthy of being an

We learn from the New Hampshire Pu
triol, that en Saturday night, the 14th ult ,
about 9 o'clock, a crowd numbering from
two hundred to four hundred appeared
about the door of the residence of General
Pierce, in Concord and, surprised hirn by
vociferous calls. Immediately the door wa i
thrown open, and in the blaze of the entry
light the ex President appeared upon the
steps and addressed to the assemblage the
remarks which we print below.
Our readers will perceive that, thongh
taken by sorprise, General Pierce deported
himself in that brave and sell-possessed
manner which has always so pre-eminently
distinguished him. There can be but little
doubt that this crowd bad some thought of
mischief when tbey assembled in front of
that mansion, but the noble and fearless
bearing of its great and patriotic occopant
awed them into sileace at first, and soon ex
torted from tbem expressions of approba
tion. The Patriot says that when he finish
ed speaking and ottered his "good night,"
they responded with a hearty "good night"
and three cheers for the General, and retired
as quietly as thoogh there had been no
scene of excitement in the day.
We hold op the ex-President's lofty bear
ing as an example for all public men who
may find themselves similarly circumstanc
ed and we commend the conduct of his lis
teners to the imi'ation of that demonstra
tive class of people everywhere, who can
neither enjoy good nor endure bad news
without disturbing their quieter and mora
law-abiding neighbors :
EPKECH OF CEN. PIERCE.
Fellow Townsmen I come to ascertain the
motives of this call. What is your desire ?
vSome one in the crowd .replied : ''We
wish to hear corns words from yoo nn this
sad occasion." Gan. Pierce proceeded :J
I wi-h I could address ynu word of so
lace. But that can hardly be done. The
magnitude ot the calamity, in all its aspects,
is overwhelming. If your hearts are op
pressed by events more calculated to awsk-
Ian j en profound 6orrow and regret than any
ith ! whicn hae hitherto occurred in our history,
mine mingles its deepest regrets and sor
rows for yours. It is to be hoped that this
great wickedness and atrocity was confined,

doom. He had perpetrated his deed of
blood in a public place, felly lighted, amidst
thousands of spectators bad paused, con
fronting that vast crowd, to otter words ol
fiendish exulta'.ion at the consummation of
his awful crime and then disappeared,
suddenly. and almost without leaving a trace.
For days he had evaded the searching eyes
of millions of people, and every day added
to the intensity ol the feeling of disap
pointment at bis continued evasion ot all
the appliances used for hi discovery. Then
came the painful lear thai, his mousirous
deed might go onpneished except by the
men'al hell that must attend such crime as
his. But eternal jjsiice was not thus to be
baffled. He had raised his felon hand at
once against ihe life of Ihe President and
the peace of the nation. Chrisfendom
could not bave concealed or shielded him.
No nation on earth would have harbored
him. Age of2Sih utl.
All soldiers oa furlough have been noti
fied by an order from the War Department
The war is ended. All the Confederate
troops east of the Mississippi, excepting a
smad force between Tupelo and Corinth,
commanded by General Taylor, have laid
down their arms.. The Confederates weat
of the Mississippi are negotiating a surren
der. There ought to be no more fighting ;
for every drop oi blood shed now by either
side, will be uselessly spilled. The march
ing and countermarching is over, and there
is nothing left for us to chronicle. Two ircti
c!ad, one on the Mississippi ; a few band
of partisans scattered over the South ; a fu
gitive President with his body guard, are
all that are left of the great American rebel
Tbe task marked out by os nearly three
years ago. has come to a conclusion. The
peace so long and earnestly sought ftr by
e very American, i dawning brightly.

The Soldibr's Casket, a new work, is
published by C. W. Alexander. No. 123 S.
Tnird St., Philadelphia, at S2.00 per annum
in advance. Having glanced over its pages
we car. safely recommend it to the reading
public aa an interesting and entertaining
work. Any person having had the least
experience in the army should" subscribe
for it, as to him it will prove doubly interest
ing. It contains many incidents in con
nection with army life that are really rich,
racy and pleasing. The literature is good ;
will surpass many Magazines received by
as. -This work is, too, filling a place here
tofore blank in literature ; as there were no
works published of like character ; and
should succeed beyond .expectation. Send
and get it.
Division of Opinio. Considerable com
mem has been made in religious circles
over tbe fact that President Lincoln should
bave been at the theatre on the evening of
Good Friday- One Divine asserts tbat be
could not bave been a "good Episcopalian,
or he would not bave been in such a place,
at such a lime," while another person
thinks he could not have been a good
Presbyterian, or he would not have been
there at all, while another Divine in a dis
course brushes away all such objections
against Lincoln, by contending that he has
already entered the portals of Heaven and
