Opposing aa we hare always done, and
always shall, the -doctrine pf centralization
as contrary to the genios of oar institutions
and snbversive of Democratic idea, we have
also been firmly. opposed lo ijae ideas that
States can dissolve their allegiance at will
to the good faith which bound them in our
Governmental compact. Believing as we
do ihalihe Constitution was intended to be
perpetual, arid only to be amended through
the meant it by itself provide, we heartily
I endorse the declaration of the .President that
the States lately engaged in rebellion, are
still in the Union and have never Jxin out
of it. Oq this point our course, has been j fully report: That we have eximined the
pfeciaeljr the same as his. We hold also J Public buildings belonging to the said court

fairs should be entrusted, even though they
were ia numbers but a corporal's guard.
We know that many, very many who en
gaged in this rebellion are and always hae
been, traly Voyal, while thousands of others 1
who cberisted ihe grand idea of a "South- lo wit : The btidge over Fishingcreek, on

This idea tha( the States are not eut f the
Union is also maintained by many 7Iepubli
cans, bat with a totally different interpreia
lion from the one entertained by tbe De
mocracy. They hold this idea, because
frdm their stand point they look upon ii as i
a point gained for Federalism-being acta . i
ated by the same motivea which impel tfceir .
bolder brethren,-Scmner, Wade, Sievens, I
and their followers, to maintain that they are
out of the. Union. Both parties seek rtie .

is built i
upon tbe fundamental basis of States Righ's,

j there is ore principle which obtained dur
j ing Mr. Lincoln's administration, which
1 seems to cling to the administration of Mr.
: Johr.sor. It is lhe superceding of civil by
I mili'tary law. A Military Cammi-sion has
been selected for the trial of Booth's con-
abettors. A crime such as
thcy are of "mesrfctly and spec
ally under the jurisdiction of ciil courts,
and the constitution expressly provides that

'. The Blind Fubt or a Mob. In Philadel
phia, last week, a man named Simon Sny
der (a name historically reverenced ii
Pennsylvania.) was struck, through mis
take, by anothrr. Immediately the cry of
j "Copperhead'' was raised ; and bh excited
crowd became wild in theT endeavors to
kill him, under the impression be had said
something direspec:fuP oli Mr. Lincoln.
Fortunately an officer was present, the local
telegraph was set lo work, the police came,
a'ul fcy almos: super-human efforts lhe
man'a life was savedj though his person
wa seriously injured. It turned out, on
inquiry, thai he wa a warm friend of Mr.
LiLColn, had vo:td for Jjiji ia 1860 and
1864, and deep'y regretted bis Jiaib. Nev
erhe'eas the Pres says : ' it is evidenl !hai
Mr Snyder wold have been killed ia a
mistake, had it not been for officer Kending, (
to whom he msy attribute tbe preservation
of his life."
Thb vessel upon which Booth, the. as
sassin, sent hiii theatrical wardrobe from
Canada to Nassac, last fall, was never heard
of, and is supposed lo have gone down with
air on board. Booth's ' intention was to
tiave his wardrobe run Ihrougl the block
ade into the South, where he designed to
go himself on a theatrical tour. A fatality
seems to have pursued all that was in any
way connected with the criminal, who even
then may have meditated .his great crime
It is asserted that the fracture of his le"

The.crea!ion of national debts is. not a
modern improvement, but the ability of a
great nation to provide for a great debt, and
to make it fbe most convenient and best
form of personal properly, is a modern
wonder. The debt of Great Britain was be
son by raisin a million sterling by loan in
1692, and when her great contest with
Louis XIV. was terminated, the debt had
reached -fifty millions. Many statesmen
and economists were then alarmed at the
great burden which had been imposed or
on the country, but when the war of the
t-l -M-l .L-1
uau eweiieu im
amount to eighty millions, Macaulay says
that historians and oritors pronounced the
the case to be dasjiera'e.. But when war
asain broke out, and the nalisnal debt was
rapid! y carried op to one hundred and for
ty millions, men of theory and - business
both pronounced that the fatal day bad
certainly arrived. David Hume said that,
although, by taxing its energies to the ut
most, lhe country might possibly live,
the experiment mut never be repeated,
even a small increase might be fatal.
Granville said the nation must sink nnder it
unless some portion of the load was borne by
the American Colonies, and the attempt lo
impose this load produced the war of the
revolution, and, instead of diaxinishincr, a id
ed another hundred millions to the bur. Jen.
Again, says Macaulay, was England given
over, but again she was more prosperous
than ever before. But when at the close of
her Napoleonic wars in 1316. this debt had
been swelled up to tbe enormous sum 'of
over eight-hundred million sterling, or four
thousand three hundred million dollars, or
nearly one half of the LTrited Kingdom, the
stoutest heart, the firmest believer in the
national progress end national development, j

very face of this mountain of obligation,
to say nothing of her vast colonial posses

has beeu more than trebled, and her debt is
now a charge of but I2j per cent, against

Horace Greeley, Speaker Colfax and fam
ily, passed over the East Pennsylvania rail
road to New York, the other day, in one of
the gaudy private cars, built for the "gov-
ernmenr' at an immense expense. l ne
day was very inclement, and the train an
immense one. From Harrisbur to Allen
town the bumpers of the cars were full, not

Greeley and Colfax playing cards. The
wife of a member 01 Congress from the Wet
also took sick on the road. Application was
made lo Messrs. Greeley and Colfax for her
admission into their car.and it was refused.
At New York she was carried from the cars
10 the ferry boat being nnable to walk.
The conduct of these two men was a sub
ject of general condemnation, and the ques
tion was generally asked, particularly by
the soldiers, what business Greeley and
Colfax bad with a 'government private car?'
They are,it is true. of the 'loyal' aristocracy,
and have a great deal to say of their friend
ship for the soldiers and "brave defenders
ol the country," but they would see them
die on the threshold of their doors, before
they would open to admit them. AUentown

undoubtedly command a premium as has
uniformly been the case on closing the

probable that no considerable amount beyond the

throughout the country have generally
