Lincoln Memorial Fond,
A!l over the country contributions are
being levied and collections taken ap in our and Sabbath Sctoo Is, to swell the
above fund.
We deem it meet and right that Mr. Lin
cola should have a memorial at his tomb
defining and creditable to the country, but
the expenditure of the enormous suras now
being gathered (if honestly-applied) will
tend very much to weaken republican sim
plicity and revive a reverence in our people
for regal pomp and aristocracy.
Why should our preachers make these
appeals to the Churches and Sabbath
Schools? this thins was never thonghl of to
raise money to complete the memorial to the
Father of our Country. The Washington
' Monument commenced cer twenty years
ago and stands balf complete for the want
of means ; no preacher or Sunday School
Superintendent ever thought of begging a
cent for that, and exciting the children to
contribute, by telling them that for five cents
their names should be recorded and de
posited in a corrcr stone of George Wash
ington's Monument. No, and we very
mcch doubt if one of these loyal clergy ever
dropped a half a dime or even a nickle in
one of the thousands ol boxes put up all
over the la nd to receive contributions to fin
ish the Washington Monument.
Tus Philadelphia Inqnrier of the 1 1th
inst. say :
Something of the Old intolerant spirit is
begicning to show itself again in North Car
olina. The Raleigh Progress declines 4o pub
lish, even as an advertisement, an account
of a meeting of uegroes.
Intolerant! why yes, that is impudent!
The proprietor of the Raleigh rrogrcs mnst
be a traitor I! he pretends to dictate what
shall and what shall not be published in
his paper." Get Seward to ring bis bell.
Have Stanton back him op. It may not be
safe to allow such a man to be at large. At
least send a delegation to President John
son and mase complaint. He might do
eome terrible deed. He might say the "!ate
martyred President" was a despot, or call
Stanton an apostate oppressor. It is cer
tain!) very intolerant ! or the Philadelphia
'Inquirer is controlled by an ass.
Ths Ladt's Fbikhd The July number of
this Magazine opens with an engraving ap
propriate to the season, called "Oa the

Dissolution of Loyal Leagues The so
called "Union General Committee" of Kings
county, New York, has suggested the im
mediate dissolution of the "Loral Leagues"
in that, county, and it is generally believed
that this action will result in the breaking
up of these disreputable and treasonable
combinations. It has been well said that
these Leagues, "composed of men of narrow
views and inveterate prejudices, formed for
mischievous purposes, and used for the
personal aggrandizement of the members,
have been justly looked upon with distrust.
Slany of thce Leaguers', especially in sec
tions of the country whera liberty of speech
was considered a crime, were furnished
; with arms and araunitioa at the public ex
pense, sod are known to have been em
ployed as spies and informers in the service
of their leaders."

ffinrder la Cambria Couaty, Pa. j
Miss Mary Paul! an sged maiden lady,
resided In Ctovle township, Cambria county,
about two rr.jles north from Summer Hill
nation, on the Pennsylvania Central "rail
road. She had oo family save a domestic,
a handsome abd intelligent young ldy, by
the name .of Catharine Mundieh. She
irved on a-secluded spot oL ground, a" short
distance from any road, and nearly a mile
from the ne'a'rdst-farm house. About sun
down oa Wednesday evening, the 7th inst.,
a neighbor's li; tie girl, while hunting cattle
beard screaming -in the direction of Miss
rani's residence and on coin within"
sight of the house, saw two men ma from
the house towards the -stable. The little
girl being frightened, ran home, and told
what 6he had beard and seen. Her parents
thought nothing of the matter cn till the
next morning when it was observed that
no smoke carte from the chimney, and
about the middle of the day thei r neighbors
went to the hoase, when a scene of the most
horrible brutality presented itself. Every
thing in the house had been overhauled in
a search for plunder, and no living person
was to be found. On searching the prerai
ses the body of the old lady was found in
the fodder-room of the stable, the back of
her head eviden tly crushed in, and a club,
evideatly the instrument of death, lyiag be
aide her. About an hour afterward, the
body of the gir', Catharine Mundieh, waa
found. Her scull was crushed in over the
right eye and t vmple, and a club lay by her
side, A post-m.$rtem examination was made
the day following (the second day after the
murder) by Drf. Bunn and Gardner, which
resulted in a verdict according to the above
facts. Money was doubtless the object of
the murderers. How much was obtained
has not yet been learned. One arrest has
been made, but, as yet, the. evidence con
necting him with the crime is not very
Notes of Tuibd Series of 7-30s now
ready. Tbe demand for the Second Series
of the 7-30 Notes was so great that the
Treasury Department was unable to print
them wiih sufficient rapidity to fill the or.
ders It will be remembered that a hun
dred millions were subscribed and paid for
in a single week. The printing presses
have finally surmounted the, difficullr, and
on Wednesday, June 7th, the deliveries of
the Third Series commenced, and will be
continaad with the same promp'ness that
marked the supply of the notes of the first
and second series. It has been this inter
ruption of delivery at the lime of subscrip
tion which has given an appearance of a
falling off in the popular inking of the loan,
the great boc'y of small takers being un
willing to pay ihtir money uuless they re
ceive their notes right in hand, to carry
them home. It is expected that after this
week the daily subscriptions to tbe Seven
Thirties will rtin op into millions, as they
will undoubtedly be stimulated b) the open
ing of the farmers' wool markets Eat and
West. It is not all likely that the Govern
ment will ever again offer so desirable a se
curity as these notes, and about two hun
dred millions on'y remain (o be taken.
With the close of the war the national
expenses will be vastly reduced, and in
vestors most look for a sharp red-sction in
Ihe rate of interest as soon as (he present
loans become due, and can be paid off.
There is no reason why the United States
credit for money should ever again fall be
low its credit for courage Tbe same spirit
that preserved tbe geographical integrity of
the country will place its pecuniary integrity
on a par witk that of the most favored na
tionsand that will represent a rate of in
terest under rather than over four per cent.
It baa always been asserted by the Dem
ocratic party that emancipation of the South
em negroes would leave them in a worse
condition than i la very. Now that the Ab
olitionists have apparently accomplished
their object the truth of Democratic a'gu
ment has become evident. The most en
thusiastic Abolitionist does not pretend to
contradict that the black population is in
infinitely won condition. The Philadel
phia Inquirer, a ranting Abolition sheet, an
nounces the following :
A delegation of colored men, who arriv
ed at Waahing'on from Richmond, were at
tbe White House on the loth inst., awaiting

the military restrictions aj Richmond, which
condition, they allege, is not better than it
was when they were in slavery.

What of lie Fntnre !
Il i3 difficult to get out of a labyrinth of
contradictions, when a man once gets fairly
involved in them. We judge Mr. Andrew
-Johnson is getting in such a position afast
as h8 knows bow. His "Amnesty and Re
construction', policy has now been before
the country two Weeks, and thVmore it is
exam ined the worse will it appear. Be
sides , it has not the merit of pleasing any
body. The out-and-out Abolitionists dislike
it, and every man professing to be a Demo
crat must utterly repudiate it. It looks like
weak attempt to carry water on both
shoulders, one of ihe most difficult feats
that any public man in this country can at
tempt. Besides, people have an abiding
conviction that Mr. Johnson is sinning
against light and knowledge. Il was often
difficalt lo decide, positively, whether Mr.
Lincoln knew the right from the wrong, but
with Andrew Johnson the case is totally dif
ferent. No better practical statesman lives
in the United States, not ene more convers.
ant wi h the genius and charscter of our gov.
ernment. We have, therefore , extended to
Mr. Johnson tbe utmoM liberality, prefering
not to jadge him by his acts during the past
four years.but by the record of his life-time,
(tis evident, however, that he is following
in the crooked and devious ways of his pre
deeessor. His two Proclamations, one of
Amnesty" and the other of "Reconstruc
lion," are but a combination of the mon
strous usurpations of Executive power which
have now transformed this government into
a military autocracy. If Mr. Johnson had
the candor lo announce that he intends to
hold (be southern Slates as conquered prov
inces,we could appreciate at leasl the frank
ness of the avowal, but to pretend that he is
"guaranteeing to them a Republican gov
ernment," mhile overthrowing their State
Constitutions, and demanding that thay shall
change their form of society lo suit his views,
or the views of the infamous gang of John
Brownites who now pasture in Washington,
is, and can be, nothing less than a cowardly
truckling to Abolition dictation, or sublime
mixture of audacity and hypocrisy. Mr.
Johnson knows better. We repeat it, he
know better, anil here is the proof of it, from
a speech of his delivered in NashvilleTerm ,
in 1865 :
The Federal Government derives all its power
from the Slates, and it is limited and defined ;
and it cannot impart sovereignty to the peo
ple of a territory, which is necessary to con
stitute a State. Coneress has the power
conferred npn it by the Conetiiction to ad
mit new States into the Union, but has no
piicer to muk". them. It most be a State, in
ihe proper sense of the term, before it can
be admitted into the Union ; and the power
to make a State must emannte from the people,
and not Ihe Federal Government. As I before
remarked this is the dividing lire between
the Democratic party and all oiber parties
springing up in opposition lo it, since the
days of Alexander Hamilton, or the origin of
the Federal Government.
Is this the part of Mr. Johnson's record
that he told us he was going to stand by ?
We will not, however, gravely discuss the
terms of ilr. Johnson's policy as embraced
in the Proclamation referred to. We fake it
that dome things are to be considered as
settled, so far as argument is. concerned.
That two and two make four, is no more a
fixed principle in mathematics than that
each S ate has the right :o manage its own
domestic affair. Tbe only valid reason,
therefore, 'ibat Mr. Johnson or any of the
supporters of his policy can give for it, is,
that that they have tbe power to enforce it 1
Constitutionally, legally, morally, il is, in
one word, monstrous!
What can be more reprehensible thsn to
demand that every perion, before he can
have any civil rights, shall swear to sup
port executive Proclamations, as well as the
Constitution ? He is thus compelled to
swear to uphold and to break the Constitu
tion in the same breath ! Mr. Johnsoo also
takes a part of the Abolitiou creed and re
jects the remainder. He insists upon mak
ing the negro a freeman I Then, too, if he
can change a Stale Constitution in one re
spect, he can in another.- If hecan make a
freeman of a negro be can make a slave of a
white man, or take the ballot from one and
give it to the other. The right to do the one
implies the right to do the other. The only
question is one of force and power.
We feel convinced, now, that we under
stand ihe exact drift of Mr. Johnson's policy
We have waited long enough to see tbe pro
gramme, as laid down, cropping out in var
ious forms and places. He evidently hopes
to form a party out of the Shoddy Republi
cans of the Weed Seward School and the
Shoddy Democrats of the Ne York World
and Albany Argus persuasion. This is a
very nice programme to look at,but il won't
work. Ia the first place, ihe livt Democrats
of the North will not touch tbe unclean bas
tard with a forty-foot pole. They demand
their Constitution (not Andrew Johnson's)
back again. They want their laws, their lib
erties and their Union, as they were made in
a time of peace, and not as they have been
transformed and deformed by (he bloody and
despotic war which has destroyed "ihe best
government on earth," and they want these
rights extended, with generosity and kind
ness, to their brethren of the South.
In view of these considerstions, ought
there not be an immediate movement
among Ihe Slate Rights Democrats of the
North, to organize a party upon State Rights
principles 1 Is it worth while any longer to
brother with "the Democratic party" which
is run by capitalists and foreign monarch
ists, aad ia which true Democrats are al
ways swindled and involved in the support
of principles which they abhor 1 The De
mocracy of Kentocky have already planted
themselves on thejrue platform, and not a
moment should ba lost in warning, northern
Democrats from committing themselves to
tbe insidnons policy of Mr. Johnson, which
i's advocates veil under tha guise, of modar-.
alion and conservatism. Wa most remem
ber that our brethren of the South are cow
under a despotism, that they cannot speak
and act with freedom. ' The terms of -the
conquerer are upon them. His feet Js upon
their necks. Thay yield with the best grace
possible, because resistance would be use
less and futile. - If there, ever was a ti mo.
therefore, whett northern Democrats could
chow a disioteretted deyoiioa to principle,
it is at this very moment. Lotus extend
hope and encouragement to the gallant and
suffering peopte of the demanding
tha same rights for them that we enjoy our
selves. In this way will the true Demo
crats of the country ba re-united, and in
that re union lies tbe whole hope ol the fu
ture of our country. -We must strike for
"the Constitution as it is and the Union as
it was." Let this be the rallyiog cry of ev
ery true man in tbe entire .country AVw

Majob R. B. Rickets, of the Army of the
Potomac, arrived at this place on Saturday
morning last, enjoying excellent health. He
is still in tbe service burexpects to be mus
tered out, at his own request, in the course
of a few weeks.' There are few men in the
army who have seen more or harder service
than Major Ricketts. He volunteered at
the firing of the first gun and has been in
active service ever since, participating in
all the hard fought battles of the Arm) of
the Potomac, under McDowell, McClellan,
Pope, Burnsides, and a score of other com
manders, making many hair-breadth es
capes, without ever receiving any seri
ous injury. He rose lo his present rank, a
year or more since, net through the wire
workings of bar-room politicians and stay-at-home
patriots, but by bis own untiring
exertions and energy, displayed npon every
battle field that it waa his lot -to be engaged
with bis Battery, disputing the progress of
thcenemy. He baa lost few, if any, pieces;
but captured quite a number fiom the ene
my; which is more than can be said of
many of our old regular artillerymen. Maj
Ricketts is a. gentleman, scholar and sol
dier; and no officer in the army of his rank
enjoys a better record or a larger circle of
Why Don't each and every one of our
town Republicans send down South, now
that Sambo is free, and get a negro apiece
to do their chores, cultivate their gardens,
curry their horses, &c, &c. ? and thus strip
the white man of all that kind of .labor.
This, evidently, is their intention to grind
down the white laboring classes, as we no
tice some of our. more ardent Republicans
are already giving employment to the negro
in preference to the white laborer ; and if
we mistake not, our. loynl neighbor of the
Republican is among ihe number who em
ploy Sambo. Black labor may be cheaper,
but it isn't possibte that it is better. In cer
tain parts down South the negroes are beg
ging lo return to their Masters. This thing
of supporting oneself is something they
were not broogbt up to, end are starving lo
death at it, in large numbers. How much
worse their condition ! In the North they
are not needed. We have a sufficient am't
ef labor in the North to meet the demand;
and when our businesi mer. cannot afford
lo pay for white labor they bad befer sus
pend opera'ions, is the sentiment of the
great mass of the white people North.

it, is a hard one ; and our enly wonder is,
that so many return from the army looking

nntill his head was obscured and his arms
full of bouquets. S ill they came, and he
was obliged to lay the fragrant offerings up
on the table. Cheer . on cheer, and burst

as tbe hero, never daunted or hesitating on

How different tbe administration of An

tenet much to facilitate the work of recon

Our fair Correspondent may be right in
the abstract. We don't profess to know
much about the odor of sanctity with which
these people regard their churches. For
ourselves, we don't believe that the church
es which for four years have answered the
purposes of Sunday political club rooms,
week-day theatrical or panoramic exhibi
tions, and bloody war lectures, could be
further desecrated by being turned into a
restaurant or a juggler's shop. And ap
pearances indicate lhat the preachers, and
at least a majority of their people are of
the same opinion..
Why the
French SIssion
was TYndcrcd
Special Correspondence of the N. Y.News.
Washington, Jone 17, 1865.
I have been informed how ihe letter from
deceased President Lincoln, tendering the
French mission to Bennett of Tbe Herald,
was obtained. Bennett sent, a person to
this city, who stated that The Herald had
possession of some communica'ions reflect
ing upon a member of Mr. Lincoln's fami
ly, but that Bennett was undecided whether
or not to poblieh ; following that it was in
dicated to Mr. Lincoln that the tender of
the mission to France would be pecsliarly
gratifying to the editor of the Herald, who
would be willing to rost-date a letter, de
clining the same. This letter was in pos
session of Abraham Lincoln when he wrote
the letter tendering said mission to Bennett.
The reports which Bennett's emissary made
capital of under bis direction, were utterly
destitute of truth, but Mr. Lincoln, know
ing that a lie wonld travel further than the
truth, thought it best to gratify the vanity of
this old man. It was a condition of this
curious transaction that it should not be'putlic without Mr. Lincoln's consent,
but Bennett, anxious to give it publicity, as
usual, broke faith, and showed the let'er to
gentlemen at bis own house on Washing
ton flights, whom he had invited for the per
pose. It it said that Mr. Horace Greeley
was one'of ihem. I possibly may be mis
taken as lo Mr. Greeley, but I know the
document was exhibited to others.

issued a proclamation to ihe people of
Pennsylvania, recommeading a.proper ob

mendation :
"I recommend that in every part ol the

President Johnson has appointed the

with a cold, accompanied with a croupy
cough, so bad, indeed, that il could not
talk and scarcely breathe.- Having beard
so much said about the PI.cb lix Pectoral
I procured a bottle of it. The first dose
relieves the difficulty ol breathing, and be

should have it in their bouse.
