General Sherman's reception at Chicago
r a the most enthusiastic affair of the kind
ever winessed. The news of Lis arrival
spread with lightning rapidity through thai
ri'V, and the grounds of the Sanitary Fair,
w here he was announced to appear, were
speedily thronged with a denia mass of citi '
zens. At noon, precisely the General enter
f 3 the Fair Building, and was escorted by
the Mayor io the platlorm. Gen. Sherman,
was received with tumultous applause. The
M ayor introduced him in a neat speech, and
Mr Bates recited an appropriate ode. Gen
eral Sherman then stepped forward aad de
livered a short address of thanks :
"I have been far iway from you, but my
feelings have been here qine as much a
hoi;h my tody had been within the limits
if Chicago. My sphere of action lay way
i tT in the South. I had with me your brothers
;!f.d your sons, and I never wanted better
backer in anything. 1 can recall, among
idoj-e backers, men of Chicago, armed with
ftronger arguments than mere words or let
tersarmed with the twenty-pounder and
twelve pounder, which speak, in language
w hich cannot be mistaken, the only voice
with which men arrayed in arms again! us
ire to be addressed and the only means man
can use when reason loses its sway to con
vince. Now all is passed ! Now all is
pence from here to the Gulf, and yoa gentle
ii. en, know belter (ban I can tell what yopr
('.ones have become. Instead of destroy ing,
oo tnnst build op. Instead of insulting you
n-nct encourage. Instead of destroying, you
muM aid those willing to assist Do in bnild
im2 up a Jand so diversified as ours. You
uni.ot expect tie people of Louisiana to
(re as you do, nor those who live iu tb'e
Caroliuas. All parties have their prejudices,
and yoa must, and should respect them as
they respect" yours. With that simple cao
tioji tnere is do danger of the peace we now
ci-jny being disturbed daring our life-time,
and we can leave the future to our
Lincoln and Washington A roTfiEo? is."
Among the many ridiculous and heathen
ish representations of Lincoln by photo
grjph now being exhibited in the win
dow ot stores and found in the parlors of
the Phariees Abolitionists that one, ur.
dti which we Cud the above quoted words,
i? certainly most accordant with the deism

ioii r raising one tolrhe raak of a God.
Therefore these loyal people deists, who
have sit ce the beginning of the rebellion
s.ii!noiif.y opposed the doctrine ol reveal
ed relL-ion, would have the world believe
that another god has jnined the great I am,
in II-aven, there, we snpposs, to assist in
ruling the universe. Whether he has eooe
to be subservient to our beneficent Creator
wi:h whom all just and good men are con -tent,
and whorr they adore and praise, or
to supersede the -Almighty, assume the
throne and 'supply the demand of Aboli
tionists, w-ho have been clamoring for an
anti'slavery GcJand an anti slavey bible, we
have col been informed. We suppose, ere
long, some most- worthy minister of onr
Lord and Saviour, Abraham Lincoln ! will
give us the information.

ing to. say agint his right to make propo

plans which seem-foolish, but, we warn the
people that vrhal is done by the bands of
such a man will need substantial confirma
tion. He is the blackguard who after making
the tour through Columbia county in search
of evidence a?aint the persons arrested last
Fall, mounted the stump in Bloomsburg, and
declared with much boasting, that he had
-sufficient evidence to prove the building of
forts, &c, by the people of Fishingcreek
and to convict them of treasoo. A blatant
lie made by a runt pig of the Republican
party. As it is probable Albright desires to
be written ol in the history proposed, we
suggest this its an interesting and impartial
item to be followed by a history of the tri
als and determination of the court upon the
doing of the Fishingcreek patriots, which
prove him a base falsifier. He is now com
manding ajorce in Schuylkill county, sent
there to enforca deduction of wages de
manded by coal operators from colliers.- A
history produced under the auspices of a
society headed by such a man, must be
partial, biased and filled with low-bred
It is enough to blanch the cheek of every
Christian gentleman in America to listen to
the ravings of a large class of Northern men
in relation to the people of the Southern
States. And of all these noisy brutes, none
are more brutal, or more profane, than the
clergy. They appear to be inspired by two
passions, each equally vile, a thirst for t
venge and a desire for plunder. They want
the North to become a boundless thief, and
possess itself of all the lands and property
of the Southern people. A heathen poet,
j Menar.der, said, "Covet not, O, Pamphilns.
even the threa J of another man's needle; for
God, who is near thee, perpetually beholds
tby actions." How much better, how much
more acceptable to God, would a man's
lime on Sundays be spent in reading even
the heathen poets than in Ihttnin- to the
'brutalizing jr,;on of the pulpits. For one,
we will listen to no priest of Mars, to no
woulJ-be thief and murderer, in the dese
crated pulpits of the divine 1 Prince of
Peace. ''Old Guard.
Wc occasionally hear the remark made
by men of less brain and talent than they
suppose they possess that the publication
ol the Republican is a "perfect success."
Please inform the public in what way it is
a success ; for our part we can't see it, only
so far as it rela es to the publisher. The pa
per Jiaa not increased the Republican vote in
this county or district, but to the contrary,
reduced it. There is scarcely an iufloential
Abolitionist in the county that takes the
Republican who'does not declare it to be a
curse to him I , Save the Editor's having
made some money out of the concern, the
enterprise has been a total Jiikirt Where
the success comes in, is only. seen by s-jch
men as proclaim it, to the amount of tvo
dollar, a year, for hit paper. Morally and
politically where is its "success'?
Down on Nfcjwo Pic-Nic. Lately Bn ap
plication was made "to President Johnson
for permission to hold a negro pic nic o i the
grounds belonging to the White House. It
was refused on the ground that "the local
ity should be kept free from snch an?em
blages." Fare-vell ! negro pic-nics. Two
years ago when President Lincoln threw
open the gates of the White House grounds
to a negro pic nic, Cccationil (Forney) ol
the Press spoke very favorable of it, an J
thought it was s more "in the right direc
lion." Information is wanted of what he
thinks of negro pic-nics now. Has his mind
undergone any changes on this subject 1

We KOTtCK tlat. many of our Abolition
cotemporaries still persist in tel'ing their
poor dupe that Jefferson Davi donned wo
man's attire to avoid detection and capture
br our troops. Now, the fact of ihe marer
is, there are no evidences to warrant them
in making any such statement about Mr
Davis. The offcial report of his capture
slates nothing of the kind; but that he
made a manly dignifiad and honorable sur
render. The Southern papers (edited by
Northern men) corroberate what is" here
Iris announced that Governor Broloh, of
Ohio, declines ibeing a candidate for re-,
election to the Gubernatorial office.
Since writing ;he above we notice in the
wenern papers that General Joseph D Cox
has received the Republican nomination.
The Democrats of that State talk strongly
of nominating General William T Shp.h
mam as their candidate for Governor. He
ought to be elected but with the large odds
against the- Democrats of that State we
hardly anticipate any such good leck.
What adileraroa the Abolition party seem
to be placed in siuce the demise of the late
President Lincoln. They dare not, it ap

present incumbent ; fearing thai Mr. Joh

opposition to- ibsir views. He has declared

fcIUical Power of tlie Soulh.
-V The South has fought valiantly for politi
cal independence? wtthont the Union. It
has lost the battle; Will it therefore ig-noro
the opportunities for securing political pow
er tcithin the !Union ? We cannot believe
(hat men who have exhibited so much spir-
Uj nerve and endurance during ' the hottest
and most doubtful periods of terrible con-
flict, will give way to a morbid sensibility
or waste the golden moments in useless re
pining and sullen indolence. . Every hour
of inactivity at this crisis will, help to con
firm the imprension that the prostration and
bewilderment of the people u fit ihem'for
the responsibilities of local government.
Apathy on their part at this juncture, a
seeming indifference to their fate, an appar
ent disposition to b'ood over the past rather
than to stiive for the future, will be regard
ed as an excuse for the exercise of an arbi
trary central authority for the re adjustment
of the systems of tcpela'iion, judicial action
and social order that have been heretofore
exclusively managed by the States respect
ively. If on the contrary, the Southern
people display a cheerful resignation to the
natural consequences of their military and
political disco nrlture, if they show an honest
alacrity, and, if possible, some little enthusi
asm, in resuming the interrupted relation
ship between themselves and the Federal
Government, it will soon become impossible
lor the most violent eflotts of fanaticism and
partisan intolerance to withhold from them
ihe full rights of American citizenship.
There is a latent political power-in the
South that awaits but a restoration to the
normal condition of republicanism to assert
'itself. An unmistakable disposition on the
part of the Southern masses to resume, ia
good faith, the duties of 'citizenship under
the laws and constitution of the United
S'.atafjWill appeal so powerfully to the pop
ular nentiment of jnstic e and self-interest in
the Nonh, that demagogues and factionists
will be compelled to yield to the current
and to accept the reastablishmenl of the
political attribates of the Union as they were
acknowledge to exist previously to the com
mencement of hostilities.
Of course the R-idicals will make every
effort to limit the right of suffrage in the
South lo tho?e of their own inclining; and
sophistry, forced conclusions, the familiar
and convenient argument of expediency, all
will be employed to iecure that great ad
vantage to their party. But they cannot
prevail. It is impossible. The good sense
ol the people, and the imperative dictates
ol their republ icanism, will forbid the dis
franchisement ol any p'ortion of their coun
trymen for whatever ffetioe, by the mere
exercise of the central authority. . Besides,
the Democracy of the North have, at least,
influence enough to protect the Democracy
of the Sooth in the enjoyment ol Tights so
essential lo the supteraacy of the Democrat
ic party. Our history does not reveal an in
stance whea the democracy permited the
canceling of a single vote in their interest
without emphatic remonctrancd and oppo
si ion. Purtisa'i organizition will soon set
tle that question, and we defy the centralists
at any important general election, to drive
a Democratic voter from the polls by any
other process than the applicaiion pf brute
force, which roy ii ot always ecrve their
turn. As soon as order has been re-enacted
out of the existing chao, principles
privilege?, organization acd political alli
ances, and applications, will find their
natural level, and the State- will resume
their prerogative of determining who stair
and who shall not exercise the elective
franchise within iheir respective limits.
Meanwhile Ihe Southern people mast
demons ra'e to the Democracy of the
North their prospective value as active ar'd
efficient adherens the party. They
must be op and doipg, exhibi;ing their in
telligence and industry in all the fields of
labor that make up the miion ol American
citizens. When ihe harvet of the South
begin to come to Northern markets, and the
logic ot profitable commercial intercoor-e
disputes the theories of demagogues and
ettre-nj partisan, there will be Ijss
talk of disfranchisement and the penalties
of treason. Be it the care ol the Southern
peop'e to make themselves valuable a
hard working members of the national com
munity, and their politic! equality will
soon be recognized. With proper manage
ment they will assist, in 1S63, in handing
over Ihe reins of power to a Democratic
Admini6ira:iot! N. Y. Djily Xeic$.

The high tax of two dollars a gallon im
posed on whiskey in January, has most
largely reduced the revenue. It ia stated
that out of one hundred million gallons
manufactured, revenue is collected on only
aooul twenty million. . In some sections of
lite country each liqaor retailer has a small
still of his own, and the recent frauds dis
covered in Bostoo, Chicago, Cincinnati, and
elsewhere, indicate that honest manufac
turers aud payers of the revenue cannot
compete with the illicit producer. If the
law shall be continued, private domestic
stills will next be introduced, and each guz
zler of the ardent will draw consolation from
his own worm. -

a year, that 'be never was a Republican.

A Kansas Abolitionist at Richmond.
Another good sign Is found in a letter
from Hon. Martin- F. Conway, late .M. C.
fromKansas, now an attorney at Richmond,
Va., and a tearing Abolitionist, in and "out
of Congress. Mr. Conway addresses the
Tribune to correct what he calls the flagrant
misrepresentations of its Washington cor
respondent touching the recent elections.
We quote :
In the first place, (says Mr. C.,) there has
no general election taken place in Virginia
since the restoration. The election to which
allusion ;.s made was a special one, held in
but six counties ; and of them returns have
as yel t een received from only three. I am
informed upon the best authority that of
the pereona in three counties heard from,
all were Union men before the war, ex
cept the ones from Alexandria.
Iu the next place, it is a fact that there are
no longer any "DisunionUts" in Virginia.
The people are all for the Union, having
failed in their effort for a separate overu
ment, and recognizing thai failure as con
clusive. They acceptj ihe Union without
reservation, intending to stand by it in good
faith. I he National. Government is to be
theirs and their children's forever, and to
that governmeni, although Ihey would not
have voluntarily chosen it, they will bear
faithful allegiance. This is the exact posi
lion ol ninety-nine hundredths of the peo
ple of Virginia.
I deeply regret to see the spirit of pro
scription which many persons entertain
toward ihe Southern people in their present
condition a people whose kindred blood
and befoic character, to say nothing of their
misfortunes, should commend them to our
sympathy and respect. Thia spirit of pro
scription is wrong. Ihe slaveholders re
bellion was precipitated by irresistible
forces, and it is unjust to hold individuals
responsible for it. It should rather convict
Thomas Jefferson than Jefferson Davis of
being its author ; but ihe truth is, it was an
event developed in the progress of civiliza
tion. Shall we not be kind and forgiving to
those whohave committed error, however
gribvous, when it is manifest that their error
was ordered by Providence, in His wisdom,
to advance the interest of mankind 1
With regard to the "incidental" quea
tions connected with the war, I find the
Southern people as reasonable as could be
expected or desired. They consider slavery
dead and gone, aid are glad that it ia so.
They are disposed to accommodate them
selves lo the new system of labor, and to
promote thc well being ol the black man lo
the best of their ability. As to saf
Irage, ii is a new idea here; but 1 am sure
that it will in some form or other, be ulti
mately adopted by ihe people.
Very respectfully, your friend,
Martin F. Conwat.
Richmond, Va , June 2, 1865.
This new system of banking, fastened
upon theconatry in the hoar of trial by the
old money hunks who fought Jackon in
his day, promises as much now as then, but
are lhete promire based on anything more
secure and lees dangerous than the old U.
S. bank system ? we ihink not.
The men who contend for a uniform
paper currency for the while country, are
men who have accumulated larje es'ate
and desire to perpeiaale ih- same in theii
families, by puning itie country under
bond- in shape c.f a heavy perpatual
national dell, inaking it the basis of bank
ing, and by that system astociate the weal.h
of the country, so organized as lo over
shadow every other interest and control
the government of the country.
That class cites Eng'and as a precedent,
telling the people how large a debt the
owes, how etable and prosperous she is
under litis heavy debt, but fail to tell the
people England -has by a id through this
system, a pauper list of over 25O 000 of
grandee?, gentle folk, bet-idef her active
and useful thoua?ids who also liva upon
the preu'ueing and. laboring class, while the

money system have no more to say in ihe

throw out a thought for tb.3 consideration of

These national banks now number over
one thousand, and it is quite safe to say
will double within a year. Our State or
local banks are all fast becoming national
banks, soou ihe people will have no other
money, men under these specious promises
will lose their accustomed caution, and as
inflation increases speculation will increase;
men will sell aitd buy, money contracts
will become due, Mr. Jones will lift his
deposits, say len, twenty, cr perhaps fifty
thousand dollars at the Eirst Natioual Bank
of Funkstown, carry the same to Discount
ville lo pay offh'ts farm, bought from Mr.
Hunks ; the vender eays lo Mr. Jones, ' I
don't like this money, can'l take it." ' But,"
says vendee "Mr. Hunks those are natio-nai
bills, all genuine and receivable by the
United States government in payment of
debts ar.d dues, except" ''No matter, Mr
Jones, here is our contract, and 1 am
judge of what 'money I will take, and as I
am not obliged to " receive this son of
money, you had better just return to the
bank and exchange these bills for gold or
legal tender."
Mr. Jones returns to the First National
Bank of Funkstown, after laying his money
package upon the counter, says to the
cashier, "Mr. Hunks won't rvceire this
racney, but demands greenbacks or gold,
now if you please Mr. Cashier, 1 will feel
obliged it you'll exchange with me.".
'Indeed, Mr. Jones, it is impossible, we
have neither gold nor greenbacks."
"Well," says Mr. Jones, "you'll please
redeem yo.ur bills, and as Mr. Hunks will
not take this money. I cannot receive other
j than legal tender for these your bills, and
will be obliged to carry your bills lo a
Notary Public for protest." The bills are
protested and forwarded lo ihe Treasury
Department at Washington, D. C.
The Comptroller of the Treasury is re
quired lo realize, upon the bonds deposited
by the First Na'ional Bank of FunkMowti,
and after thirty days must begin - the re
demption of the bills of the First Nationa 1
Bank of Funkstown. The Treasury agent
puts upon the market one, two, or fife
hundred thousand dollars of 5 20 U. S
bonds, belonging to the First National
Bank at Funkstown, announcing at the
same time that nothing but gold or legal
lender will be received as money for those
bonds, as national bank bills are not legal
tender they cannot be received ; yet the
duty of the Treasury ageut is imperative,
and these bonds mu-l be sold that the bills
of the First National Bank ol Funkstown
may be redeemed according to law. Down
goes Five Twenties, down, dowr, down,
the people lake the alarm, a panic ensues,
who is to stop it and how is it to be stop
ped. Some perons will say , "Why, let Con
gress declare all national bank bills legal
tender ;" Congress can do no such thing,
no more than Congress can compel Mr.
Hunks to take Mr. Jones promissory note as
legal lender. .Congre ss may suspend specie
payment, as England did, what then 1
why lo compensate for this check lo
depreciation, gold, teal e-tate, and every
commodity will go op, up, up, no one can
le 11 bow far.
All this may or may not happen, we
hope it will not, but il something is not
done to restrain this national banking sys
tem, and the nation cease to borrow Irom
these national ba-iks, it will come, for it is
the logical sequence of the system.
We have confidence in the prudence and
foresight of President Johnson, (ha- he will
call lor some action Congress eatly to check
this mad banking system and by recom
mending a continuance and extended issue
of legal tender U. S. bills for circulation
amongst the people, and thereby ward off
an evil as threatening almost as the inva
sion of our country by a foreign enemy ; but
will the loyal Congress see it, or will their
1 y ally permit them to sepport President
Johnson, and save the country from a
panic, and the sovernment securities lrom
deprec iation. West-Branch Democrat.

that our late President went straight to

nor repentance, nor communed, nor w.
