Maj. Gen. JOHN W. GEART, of Oumb. Oo.
The Connecticut Election.
The election in Connecticut, or Monday,
April 2d, has resulted in a complete rout of
the Democracy. Gen. Hawley, the Repub
lican candidate, beats English, Democrat,
by 599 majority; and the Legislature is
largely Republican, thus securing the elec
tion of a Republican United States Senator.
-:. The contest in Connecticut was attempt
ed to be made a test between President
Johnson an J Congress as to the best mea
sures to be adopted for the restoration of
the National authority in the States lately
In rebellion ; and it was hoped that, by load
professions of approval of the "President's
policy," the Democracy might ride into
power as the champions of the measures of
the Administration. . Mr. English, their
candidate, was not only a popular man, but
he was a so-called war Democrat, and had
voted in Congress for the Constitutional
Amendment abolishing slavery. All these
"favorable circumstances, however, proved
of no avail. lie has been defeated, and the
most determined attempt to overthrow the
party in power has failed in a State which
many considered doubtful. The result of
this election shows that the Republicans of
the "land of steady habits" couldn't be
gulled by any clap-trap professions on the
part of men who were the bitter opponents
of the war for the Union, the calumniators
, of the lamented Lincoln, and the inveterate
enemies of Andrew Johnson during the con
tinuance of the Rebellion. There is a lesson
la this which ought to have its influence
upon political affairs in other quarters.
Conservatism What ia it ?
Now-a-days we hear much said about
"conservatives, and hence the question,
. What b conservatism ? . Webster's diction
ary gives,
"Conservatism, s. The deslro and effort to pre
" serve what ia established."
Andrew Johnson, in tho United States
Senate, during the first session of the 36th
Congress gave the following definition : '
"Conservatism ! It is the argument of Ty
ran and despots, one that entails an existing
tnsttotion in its present form, whether it Le
fighter wrong."
Now, we opine, that Mr. Johnson's defi
nition is, in all probability, more applicable
to these latter days, than that of Mr. Web
' eter ; for it is an obvious fact, that the ex?
tremeists, whenever they wish to carry or
enforce any particular measure or policy, bc-
:. come the special advocates of, and prate
loudly about "conservatism." During the
progress of the rebellion this same class of
persona generally Btyled themselves "neu
i teals," and were disappointed in their de-
-trigns. The war over, they assume the so
briquet of "conservatives," aa a cloak to
hide their former duplicity, and to popular
ize their present detestable projects, "wheth
er right or wrong," or however detrimental
to the general prosperity of tho Union, or
the welfare of the people.
The Fenians.
Some of the New York papers got up
quite a sensation last week by a report that
Gen. Killian had set sail with some 5,000
, men for Bermuda, and that the war for the
, liberation of Ireland was about to commence
in earnest. There aro those who look upon
! the movement as a humbug, designed only
to keep up the subscriptions to the Feuian
bonds, out of which the leaders are making
rather "nice thing." Tfie Herald, how
ever, thinks that the hour of action of the
real military movement under President
Roberts and General Sweeney draws nearer
and nearer. Tb.e "sensation" caused by
. this will be of a peculiar character, and best
explained by a bullet lecture to her Majes
ty's red coats.
Tha United States and Mexico.
On the evening of the 3d April, Secretary
Seward : gave a handsome entertainment to
Madam Juarez, the exile wife of President
' Juarez, of the Republic of Mexico, at which
all the representatives of the Spanish-A-
merican republics were present, as was also
he Russian Minister. The affair is regard
ed fld a significant and important diplomatic
event, and a delicate official notification that
oar Government recognizes no other gov
ernment in Mexfe? than that of the Repub
lic ' The presence of the Russian Minister
aril) be understood by Louis Napoleon as a
waiter of the gravest political import in re
ference to the policy of Russia in both
hemispheres.' :'. J

Jfr. Clymer'8 Record.
In the State Senate, on April 12th, 1861,
on motion of Mr. M'Clure, the second read
ing and consideration of the bill providing
for the arming of the State of Pennsylva
nia was entered upon. . Previous to the as
sembling of the Senate that evening a tel
egraphic dispatch announced that the Union
tioops were engaged in actual conflict with
the rebels at Charleston. All the members
were in possession of the news, and each act
ed under it as his feelings and principles
The Senate proceeded to the discussion of
the bill, and upon the passage of each sec
tion the yeas and nays were required. Each
division produced a strict party result. Ev
ery Republican voted to put the State in a
condition of defense ; and every Democrat
voted against doing so. On every division
Mr. Clymer voted to the advantage of the
rebels. On the final passage of the bill the
vote stood :
Yeas Messrs. Benson. Boughter, Bound, Cor
nell, Finney, Fuller, Gregg, Hall, Hamilton,
lleistand, Irabrio. Irish, Ketchum. Landon, Law
rence, M'Clure, Meredith, Nichols, Parker, Pen
ny, Robinson, Serviil, Smith, Thompson, Whar
ton. Yardsley, and Palmer, Speaker 27.
Nats Messrs. Blood, Cltmer, Crawford, Mott.
Schindel, and Welsh 6.
This record, which Mr. Clj mer made at
the very commencement of the war, he
maintained with a marked persisteney,uutil
the close of hostilities. His principles, bis
sympathies, and his ambition, all seemed to

the truth of. these assertions, we refer the
reader to the "Legislative Record," where
his votes will be found recorded against ev
ery . measure calculated to quell the rebel
lion, and uphold the,' 'Constitution and the
The New Jersey Senatorship. '
It seems that the New Jersey Legislature
has adjourned, without electing a United
States Senator Mr. Scovell, the Speaker
of the Senate, who held the balance of pow
er, refusing to go into joint conventitn for
that purpose. Why Mr. Scovell, who was
elected by the Republicans, pursued this
course is unknown. ' Various reasons are
assigned as the probable cause. Among the
charges made against him is the following
from the Trenton N. J,) Gazette, of April
5th: . .
"We hard already demonstrated that Ja. M.
Scovell is a hypocrite, a turncoat, and a falsifior
a man of much pretension and little brains. It
would seeni that little more could be added to
this catalogue of vicioasness, but we have now to
add our solemn conviction that this man of much
conscience and little principle has been bought,
and has received a portion of the purcffkse
price, . . . When he came to theSenate this win
ter he was as poor as a church mouse, and the
circumstance that on his return from his visit to
Washington after the rejection of Mr. Stockton,
he visited Mr. Vanetta, tinman, of Camden, and
ordered a tin box made to contain Seven-thirty
United States Treasury bonds, using one of large
denomination for a measure and the ease is clear,

Cattell, the finished gentleman and noble patriot.
is the people's choice; and, if not elected now,
he will yet be sent in triumph to tho United
states eonate
An Honest Confession.
Mr. Clymer in his seech to the Conven
tion that nominated him, in referring to the
qualifications requisite for a Governor of
Pennsylvania said :
'He should stand the avowed and nndoubted
champion of the Union of these States in its orig
inal purity, ready and willing, if need be, to sac
rifice life itself in defending from the assaults of
ail enemies. . . . who, (under the garb of loyal
ty and the guise of friendship.) would undermine
land destroy it. . . . J am paint it lly conscious of
XT own inability to approach this standard of ver-
t i i ' i
evimi ana potiiicai excellence.
Exactly sot No one feels disposed to doubt
your judgment in this matter. And since you
are "painfully conscious of your own inabil
ity to approach the standard" you have
erected, had you not better refer your po
litical friends to Gen. Geary? The Gener
al is the "champion" you have so glowingly
depicted, lie was "ready and willing to
sacrifice life itself" for the " Union of these
States in their original purity," as is attest
ed by his bravery and gallantry on many a
hotly contested field with the armed hordes
of treason. .
NoRxrr Carolina. The Raleigh Stand
ard, Gov. Ilolden's paper, says that "ultra
secessionists now fill every office in the State
from the highest to the lowest," and that
"the secession leaders arc determined that
the Union men shall never be permitted to
govern the State." It adds:
"The cause of restoration has been sud
denly arrested the State has been set back
to the point it occupied when the work was
commenced, and no ono can foresee when
the work will be completed. The generosi
ty of the President has been trifled with,
and the good he desired to do this people
has been neutralized bv these leaders. . vhn
have been actuated - solely by the love of
money and office. How long will it be be
fore they are rebuked, as they should be,
and made to knv their places?"
The Bond Robbery. The man who
was arrested for robbing Mr. Lord, of New
York, of $1,500,000 of government bonds
and other securities, tried to make a bar
gain with the detectives. He proposed to
divide with them the $200,000 offered for tho
recovery of the property. They assented,
and then arrested him. This he resents as
a breach of contract, and says they, may do
what they will with him, but be ' will not
disclose where thar hands are onnflealed un
til sure of half the reward and his personal j
ireeaom Desiaes. lie accounts his enter

Special Dispatch to the Pittsburg Commercial.
WASmsoTOjr, April 6. 1?66 To-day has been
one of unexampled Congressional excitement.
An almost nndivided interest was entered in the
Senate and the House. In the former it was
well known that no adjournment would be affect
ed without a vote on the l'resiviea :'s veto of the
Civil Rights bill, while a vfle on the great con
tested election ease of Dodge vs. Brooks was also
anticipated in the House ,
The Senate presented the same dense mass of
speotators as on yesterday and the day before,
and so intense was the interest that it remained
filled to overflowing for six consecutive hours
Distinguished privileged characters were also
on the floor of the chamber and in the diplomatic
gallery. 'The contest opened atone o'clock, by
a speech from Senator Lane, of Kansas, in which
he declared very vigorously for a support of the
President, th us removing all doubts that were
circulatel in the morning as to tbe way he would
vote cn the veto when the question came up. He
was answered by Senator Trumbull, to whom he
in turn replied. Then came a long speech from
Doolittle in support of the veto, at tbe conclusion
of which a vote was anticipated. Speet itors
looked around for the heretofore absent Senators,
Wright and Dixon. The former was already in
his si at, looking in very fair health, and a thou
sand anxious inquiries were made, "Where's
Dixon V But he did not appear.
Then Garrett Davia spoke for an hour, notwith
standing the patience for a vote. When he
had concluded, Senator Yates arose and urged the
Republican Union onators to press immediately
onward to victory, and take a vote. Straightway
there was a seusation. Members of the House
came pouring' in on the Senate floor, and formed
a solid front of spectators aronnd the outer semi
circular row of senatorial seats.
It was now six O'clock, and the sparkling gag
jets were turned ;on from the ceiling, adding
great brilliancy to the scene. A rumor flew over
the Senate floor and up iuto the reporter's gal
lery that Senator Morgan had decided to vote
against the President. The general spectators
were not awaro ot tbe change, and busy bum
again ran through the galleries, '-Where's Dix
on?" But Dixon had. become aware of the
change, and his health was so very poor that he
did not enter the chamber at all, but returned
again to his room. Around Senator Mofgan
stood a group of Sew York members from the
lower house
"Question," ''question," shouted several Sena
tors There was profound silence as Vice Presi
dent Foster rose from the chair and said : '-Senators,
the question is, "Shall the bill pass, the
President's objections notwithstanding? Tbe
Secretary wi II call the roll." The heavy mono
tone of the Clerk, as each name was called, was
followed by the utmost silence to hear every re
sponse. The new Senator from Vermont Mr.
Kdmonds.did notanswer - '-Where's Edmonds ?"
"Send for .Edmonds," said half a dozen Senators
at once.
The excitement was now at its height Yea
and nay lists depended from every reporter's
seat, and fluttered , from many portions of tbe
spectators' gallery. In a moment the clerk call
ed Mr. Morgan. '-Aye," said the New York Sen
ator in a clear voice. All doubt was removed.
Instantly the spectators rose in the galleries, and
made the Senate chamber echo with applause.
On the floor the scene was but little less exciting.
Several Senators rushed np, and congratulated
Mr Morgan, as did also several members of the
House. On went the roll to the end. Mr. Kd
mohdscaine in and voted. The result was footed
up and handed to the Vice President, who said :
"The bill having received a two-thirds vote over
the veto, is passed."
The last word ii ad hardly dropped-when the
vast crowds of spectators in the galleries rose to
their feet and gave the most deafening applause.
In vain the Capital police sought to end the
tdfeult. .After three cheers, the visitors com
mencod to withdraw from the galleries. On the
Senate floor tho oonfusion was very great, and it
was some time before order was restored.
At length Senator Trumbull offered a resolution
to notify the House of Representatives of the re
sult, and then the Senate adjourned.
Washington, April 9, 4 p. m. The
House passed theCivil Rights bill, over the
President's Veto yeas 122, ndys 41. The
announcement by the Speaker, that the bill
had become a law, was followed by tremend
ous and long continued applause.
A Specimen op tiie Reconstructed.
The Richmond Examiner, of a recent date,
in an article relative to the trial of Jeff.
Davis, after informing the Committee on
Reconstruction that in the State of Virginia
'tlicy can easily find twelve times twelve
men who will eagerly undergo Mr. Davis'
imprisonment and all the peril in which he
stands, if thereby liberty may be purchased
tor him, elopes as lollows:
"When the man whom toe placed at the
head of our undertaking shall be tried for
his share in that or which we were all par
takers most of us more willing, perhaps,
than he every one will keenly feel that it
is only for him that is without offence to
cast the first stone. More than that, all
will be ready to repel the charge of treason
with indignant emotions. Allegiance was
due only to the State, and any duty arising
from the Union only bound the individual
through the State. The State absolved all obli
gations beyond her will, and all who obeyed
the State did nothing but what patriotism
.justified. The people believed this doctrine
before the war, and force has not chaneed
their convictions. Courts may instruct, but
as juries here have always exercised the
right to judge the law, even ia a matter of
dollars and cents, they will not forego that
privilege in a trial that involves the life of
their representative man and the commcn
honor of individuals and of States. The
Committee the whole world may rest
confident that Virginia gentlemen can under
no circumstances consent that Jefferson
Davis be made the scapegoat of the whole
people. No, neverV

Senator Foote of Vermont died at Wash
ington, on Wednesday morning, the 28th
March, after an illness of several weeks du
ration. He was the oldest and one of the
most distinguished members of the Senate,
having been chosen in 1850 and served con
tinually ever since. Both Senators from
Vermont have died during the present ses
sion, and in their death, not only that State
but the nation has suffered a great loess.
