The' Opposition. Notwithstanding the
attempts now made by those Republicans
whom Thaddeos Steven designated as
"parasitic Republicans," to disguise their
opposition to the President' policy, under
the hypocritical profession of support, bat a
few montht will elapse ere the entire Re
publican party will be arrayed in open war
fare against the Administration. We ay
the Itepoblican party of coarse occluding
those noble patriot! who prefer country to
party, and jive their adherence to the Pres
ident' policy because they deem it to be
lie only plan for the complete reotoratiort
of the government to ita old status. With
these exceptions the great mass of the Re
publican party clin; to their organization,
and on purely partizan ground reject the
salvation of the country.
That the aaccesa of the President's wise
end patriotic policy is not dependent on
them we riay be thankful but we"" may
rest assured they will not cease opposition
so long aa' they are able to oppose. Bat
; sustained by the entire Democratic and oth
er Conservative masses of the country, the
President may well dispense with their sop
port. As wk informed car readers before the
October election, the radicals claim the re
sult io Pennsylvania aa a victory favoring
negro suffrage. Read what the Pittsburg
Gazette says : ' . ..
"The Democrats cade negro suffrage a
special issue in the late election throughout
th State, and have been beaten. They in-
, sisted upon it that it was the issue, and the
fnly issue. We accept the rnsolt aa deci
sive on. that point, and the Democrats being
judges may fairly claim that Pennsylvania
iias decided against the admission of south
cm States nnlets manhood suffrage is first
" conceded and secured.""
Herschel V. Johnson, in Augusta, gave
good advice to bis friends. Ha told them to

On the night of the 20tb, cattle thief Jim
Lane. Senator from Kansas, made a speech
at Washington, in which he said that he
would rather bear, instead of the daily an
nouncement of the pardqri of eighty or one
bendred and fifty rebels, that two or three
were hung. He also expressed the opinion
that no roan should be pardoned en til his
e;a(e should be reduced to the squatter's
claim one hundred and sixty acres. By
snch oddities and atrocities Jim manages to
gather around bim enough rascals and cut
throats to constitute' an orbit, and to form a
uriking contrast to the good which merilori
tjcs men perform.
At St. Louis, Missouri, an Attorney who
was indicted for practicing without taking
the eatb, has been subjected to a fine of
fie hundred d&IIars. An appeal waa taken
m the. United States Supreme Co art, and a
p' of execution was granted to file a bill oi
exception. General Frank Blair made a
speech recently t Rolla, Missouri, in which
lie stated that of one hundred thousand bales
of cotton seized in the vicinity of Vicksbnrg
, and turned over to the Government, not a
thousand bales were ever accounted.for
lie charged that the Provost Marshals of the
West were a set of thieves and plunderers,
generally; accused Secretary Stanton with
t ping an original lraitor;said that Alexander
H Stephens was, on the other band, a loyal
man, and that when Stephens was : locked
t'P, the true man was imprisoned and the
nrcal and traitor meaning Stanton was
left on the outside.

A EciTon tsr Lccx. William L. Davis,
Eq., proprietor of the Easton Daily Erpress,
received a very substantial token of the
pood wi!l of his fellow townsmen on Friday
evening last, in the gift of a handsome steam
p-i-'na and boiler.-complete, intended to
v'-r.'i fc's new power press.

The Washington correspondent of the
Roatoo Herald says: 1
The room at the Surratt House in which
Payne slept, and Booth conspired, are to be
thrown open to the idle gaze of a crowd,
while all of the household farnature and
utensils are to .be knocked off to the highest
bidder by the auctioneers hammer. Even
the house which belongs to John Surratt and
sister, and who now occupy it is for
runt. The estate is to be settled, and all
that remains of the-name of Surratt, save
the interred corpse in the arsenal yard, is to
disappear from Washington. ' The house
continue to be an object ol interest to stran
gers and citizens. I rosy add here that it
haa always been something ofa mistery as
to what caused the detectives - to go to the
Surratt House in little more than an hour
after Mr. Lincoln was shot in the theatre on
that terrible Friday night. They went there
and inquired for John Surratt about mid
night. Not finding him they went away
and did not go there again until the follow
ing Wednesday night, when Payne came in
and was caught. Wiechman, the witness,
could not have given the information, for he
was in the house abed and asleep when the
Deiective called. The fact may also be
cited that the detective force wbo inquired
for Snrratt that same night belonged to the
Metropolitan police, while those who arres
ted Payne some days afterwards at that
house were attached to Gen. Augur's head
quarers. The two visits here have been so
mixed up in conflicting accounts that the
public are doubtless unaware of the fact
that in about an hour after the assassination
the authorities were at the conspirator's
headquarters and close on the heels of the
assassins, bo much for the Snrratt house."
Arrest cf Election Officers.
On Wednesday last Jacob Fisher Acting
Judge and Charles Lewis Inspector of Elec
tions in the middle ward, were arrested and
bound over to Court by Esq. Hunsicker, to
answer the charge of receiving votes know
ing them to be illegal; for those of Samuel
Roberts and John Baan, who have clerk
ships at Washington. On Thursday, Wal
lace Henderson and John Leedom, of Upper
Merion, Jude and Inspector, were bound
over on four distinct charges of refusing to
receive the votes of drafted men who had
sot reported. Aigermon S. Jenkins Esq , of
the Gwycedd election district was also on
Friday bound over to. answer the charge of
refusing to receive the vote of e qualified
On Tuesday, Samuel S. Roberts and John
Bean, of this ' Borough, were arrested 'and
bound over to court in the sum of S300, to
answer the charge of illegal voting in the
middle ward of the Borough of Norristown.
These prosecutions have been instituted
to test what the laws really are in relation to
voting and to ascertain who are the legal
voters of a district. Regularly as elections
come around we have several votes brought
home to the Borough, who reside out of it
daring the whole year, with boarding, wash
ing etc., out of the State. We are opposed
to petty prosecutions out of improper mo
tives, but it is well enough to have these
matters promptly settled. It will be fair
for all parties in the future. In the case
of the Upper Merion Judge, no vote certain
ly, could be rejected that were qualified
under the Slate laws. Norristow i Republi
can. A friend bends us a verbatim report of
one of Beechers late sermons, as a '-'curiosity;'1
and in the matter of logic and philoso
phy, it is indeed a curiosity. For the most
part, big sounding words, but senseless.
Take an example: "Things foreign to the
universe cannot last, because they have not
God in them." This i a perfect Beecher
ism,one of those novel sentence which sur
prise shallow people without conveying any
meaning whatever. What are we to under
stand by things foreign to the univtrse ? No
thing can be foreign to the universe, for it
comprehends, in itself, all things, being a
whole of wholes and embracing all parts of
all. It is units and versus, one and all. No
thing that is can be foreign to it, or outside
ol it. Even Beecher himself is a part of it,
a fact which, however disagreeable, must be
accepted. If the people generally were sen
sible, such a senseless sentence-monger as
Beecher could not earn his salt at the preach
ing business. He stands high upon the ig
norance of his bearers. If they bad a high
er degree of intelligence, his position would
be much lower. He flourishes upon their
stupidity. Reduce bis sermons and his lec
tures to the strict line of logic and sense and
they vanish lika so much smoke. The Old
Tec worthy people of Massachusetts sent
$150,000 to the Black Republicans of New
Jersey, for the purpose of carrying the elec
tion in that State by bribery and corruption.
The same class of men at Washington, New
York and Philadelphia sent, for the same
purpose,-between S300,000 and $400,000
more. What is (his but attempting to de
prive ejrery honest man of tb benefit of hie
right of franchise ? : Every man whom they
cannot corrupt they would a effectually dis
franchise as though they were to drive him
from the polls with the bayonet.
Shocking Inhumanity. At daylight yes
terday morning, the naked, dead body of a
large; healthy, and newly born male infant,
was found on a pavement in Callowhill St.
near George, this borough. An inqaest was
held subsequently, and it was evident that
the child bad been born In some other spot,
carried there and bad died from exposure.
No marks of violence were found on the
body. No evidence was elicited which
would lead to the detection of the unnatural
mother. A verdict of infanticide by some
party unknown, was rendered. The body
of the child was subsequently interred in
Potter's Field Pottsville Paper.

At the late election in Philadelphia the
nominee of the Republican party for City
Commissioner,1 Mr. Given, was .defeated by
the vote of the people of Philadelphia, and
Major Weaver, the' Democratic candidate,
was elected. Mr. Given lost over bis party
vote nearly lO.OOO! Major Weaver's ma

Republican nominee for District Attorney,
an the same ticket with Given, had nearly
10,000 majority. Yeaterday the so-called
"soldiers' vote" was returned to the Protho
notary's office. By this vote .Mr. Given was

This gigantic fraud has taken the people
by surprise. Even the Republicans are
frightened at the audacious attempt to set at
defiance the popular will. Men of all par
ties begin to ask if the Republican party is
not rotten. This attempt to "treat an elec
tion as though it had not taken place" has
stirred the public mind to a state of great
exasperation. The " negropnblicans" feel
that they have trifled with the elective fran
chise once too often they have overshot the
mark. These "soldier vote returns" show
patent frauds. The ballots are no: folded ;
the envelopes are all of one kind; they

Hcnst Ward Beecher says he w a tit J "a
government hereafter so strong that there
can never be either a tumnll or n insurrec
tion." Then the government of hell otlght
to suit him exactly, for there Lucifer's pow
er is so absolute and go great that no one
can ever think of resistance. We read of ' re
bellion in heaven,''but never of rebellion in
bell. According to Beechers theory, hell is
the best, and the best administered govern
ment in existence. No wars ! no riots ! no
tumnlts ! no insurrections! no rebellions!
no sympathisers with treasoa! There'pow
er is so perfect and despotism so admirable,
that the peace of the kingdom is never dis
turbed. Insurrections and rebellions sup
pose a consciousness of oppression.or some
wrong, with the hope of redress. Bot there
is nothing of this kind in Mr. Beecher's mo
del government of hell no consciousness of
injustice, and no hope to inspire action.
All is the dead inertia of power ; that is the
perfect model of a strong government. We
hope Mr. Beecher's admiration of that sys
tem of government will not be dampened
when he gets there. For our part, we want
to see discord, vengeance, and resistance
reign, wherever and whenever tyranny and
oppression raise their heads. We pray God
that there may never be any peace, any
where, on the basis of despot 'urn. It is the
people's right and the people's doty to free
this world of tyrants. It is the people's right
t.o be free,tnd to send to Satan's kingdom all
wbo try to introduce his system of govern
ment on earth. The Old Guard. -
Wear a Smile. Which will yon do.smile
and make others happy, or be crabbed and
make every body miserable? You fan live
among beautiful flowers and singing birds,
or in the mire surrounded by fogs and frogs.
The amount of happiness which yon can
produce is incalculable, if yon will show a
smiling face, a kind heart, and speak pleas
ant words. On the other hand, by sour
looks, cross words and fretful disposition,
yon can make hundreds unhappy almost
beyond endurance. Which will yon do?
Wear a pleasant countenance, let joy beam
in your eye and love grow in yoor forehead.
There is no joy so great as that which
springs from a kind act or a pleasant deed,
and you may feel it at night when yon rest,
and at morning when yon rise, and through
the day when about your business. .

A so-called "War Democrat" is indig

is probably the best thing to be said of you.
A mule is something between a horse and a

would almost certainly be the latter; i. e., if
yon were not a mule Democrat, yoa would be
a Black Republican ; lor it is probably not in
you to be a true, foil-blooded Democrat.

man of honor in all England wbo does not

After foor years of civil wsr. forend upon?
the people of these United States b the
violence of sectional parties, we now en
ter upon a new era Of Unity and of prog,
ress. North and South, a oordial co-ope-raiion
of all honest men is needed to re
pair Ihe waste of wit; lo establish our
Peace through the triumph of sound con
stitutional principles in the administration
of the government, and our Unity bv guard -inz
all thai makes Union desirable.
The great Democratic party, rhose hi
lory In the past is the hUtory of private
prosperity, of territorial extension, and of
public order in America, stands now, as it
has ever stood, the Party of the . Naiiori;
superior to all sectional passions in it loy
alty to ihe rights of co-equal Slates and 10
the liberties of the individual citizen. Once
more its voice will be heard, once mora
its adherents will be rallied to its time
honored standards in every city and town
of the Northern, and Southern State.
To the principles of the great Democratic
Party of the Nation, The World has borne
firm witness throughout the ordeal of civil
war. It tvill now be devoted to ihe not
less arduous task of appljing those prin
ciples to the solution of the many and
weighty questions financial, social, polit
ical which come upon ns with the return
of peace. Faithful to the real interets of
all sections, it will be enslaved by the prej
udices and blinded by the prepossessions
That the principles of American Democ
racy should thus be uttered, with no weak
or uncertain voice, here in the great metro
poliian center of American enterprise and
commerce, is a matter of such importance
10 every citizen as itiost recommend The
World to ihe co-operation and soppoit of
good men in all sections of the Union.

accomplish will contribute o make The
World what it is our resolve that it shall

Competent correspondents at every com
mercial and political center of both hemis
