As'Explanatios'. Two weeks ao, in a rather
jocular manner, we Intimated that "W.A. W."
Dad had hi satchel stolen on the cars, containing
a number of papers and other valuables, and that
the editor of the .lonrtuil was in the same; car
as we presume there were ala. a score of other
persons. The statement, though true, seems to
hare offended oar neighbor tremendously. ' We
had made the shoe to fit another party, intending
to use the Journal editor as proof in the future,
if necessary. We are surry that he has, in his
haste of self-justification, "put his foot in it--'
We did not then, nor do we now, believe that he
it ok the satchel ; but, stfbmehow or other, his re
fined and chaste mind has become highly in
censed at what we said, and in his last issue noti
fies ns to retract. This we certainly d'fc if, as he
iutiinates, our language is offensive and slander
ous to him. ' We do not want to misrepresent, or
state that which may be - personally offensive to
anyone; but we may sometimes be mistaken, or
our language be uiUinterpretod, and in our un
couth, backwoods manner, publish that which is
offensive to the refined and educate! mind: ' This
seems to be our misfortune not' our ' design at
this time; hence, like Cot. Crockett's 'coon, -'we'll
come down," so far as our lanzuajto appears per
sonally offensive or slanderous, because nothing of
tbe kind was intended. In political affair we
acknowledge we do not draw a very fine sight
sometimes, but in personal or private matters we
always want to be right; and should we at any
time give offence in this way to any one, we de
sire to be notified of it, and the offenco poiutcd
out, in order to apply tne corrective.
That will do, George. Your "explanu-

,-, . m , - Olymer to Withdraw ! -.
It really looks as if Hiester Clyiner would
be compelled to "withdraw" as a Guberna
toriaj candidate. . A verjr strong pressure was
brought against: him in the Philadelphia
Convention, and the . compulsory "with
drawal'' of Vallandigham, Fernando Wood,
ana Henry Ulay iJean, whose records dur
ing the war are not more objectionable than
Clymej's, has given it peculiar force. The
new party insist upon a new man of the
"National Union" stripe- a Soldier, if one
can be obtained, in CK'nier' place. It is
eaid that ' Clyruer is to be offered a Foreign
mission by Johnson, as a bribe to decline
which considering his hopeless chance to be
made Governor he will tyobably be glad to
accept. ' So farjis the Republicans are con
cerned,il makes not a bit of difference wheth
er.. Clymer withdraws or not. Gen. Geary
will sweep the field against any new candi
date the Copper-Johnson's can trot out.
.. .. . .. The Prospect.
Hiester Clymer is by no means popular
among the Democratic party leaders in the
eastern portion of the State. Indeed,promi
nent Democrats of Philadelphia have ' but
little respect for the Berks county politician.
and are not slow in thus expressing them
selves. Every day Geary's chances of suc
cea grow muck better, and if present ap
pearances are to be taken as an index for
comiig events, the soldier-candidate will be
eloctHl by a majority even much larger than
his warmest friends anticipate. "
If any one yet supposes that the Philadel
phia "National Union" Convention was not
gotten up in the interest of the Democratic
partly, he will probably be undeceived when
tie reads that Hester Clymer was in Phila
delphia "cheek by jowl" with the managers
of the concern, aud was cheered upon mak
ing his appearance at the Wigwaui. ,
u .,
The fact that the texts of Gen. Sheri
dan's dispatches to members of the Execu
tive departments are withheld, must be ta
ken as evidence that the original, garbled
publication did him great injustice. . The
same conclusion is reached by direct testi
mony from New Orleans.
Mr. A. II. Stephens was at Philadelphia,
but was not allowed by the managers of the
Convention to make himself .heard. Free
speech was suppressed in order to deceive
the people by a semblance of harmony. ; "

vThe President ha' issued a proclamation
restoring the wrTtof habeas corpus, in Tex
as, and declares that Texas is tranquil and
orderly and entitled to all the rights of a
State in the Union."
On the 15th, Hon. Thaddeus Stevens
was nominated for Congress by the Repub-"
licaus of Lancaster couuty, by acclamation. .
;M On Tuesday, August ; 14tlv tie so-called
'National Union " Oouventioo assembled
at, Philadelphia, and continued in; session
for three days. An iinmense'Wigwam, ca
pable of holding 10:000 persons, had been e
rected for the accommodation of the parti-'
cipants and spectators. The gathering was
certainly the most miscellaneous affair that
has been seen in this country for many years,
comprising reconstructed Rebels from, the
South, inveterate Copperheads from the
North, and perhaps a tithe of disappointed,
nowhere in particular. Every State, we be
lieve," was represented,5 tut' many of the
prominent nien, whose names had .hereto
fore been used in connection .with the move
ment, were absent ; Among those in attend
ance were Gov. Randall, ' the two Blairs,
DooHttle. Cowan, Turlow Weed;'1' Dean
Richmond, Sunset Cox, Vallandigham, Fer
nando Wood, Gov. Bigler, Judge Wood
ward, Cornelius Wendell, Gov. Orr of South
Carolina.' Gov. Perry, Wm. A. Graham,
Ileverdy Johnson,.Garrett Davis, Alex. II,
Stevens, and. others of the same stripe.
; Gen.' Dix, of New York, was chosen tem
porary chairman, and Mr; Doolittleof Wis
consin, as permanent presiding officer, with
a Vice President and Secretary : from each
State.; - y. i
'. The managers of the Convention had ev; :
erythiug "cut and dried", for . the occasion,
and by a judicious manipulation of Vallan
digham and Fernando Wood, succeeded in
getting those two ' immaculate . patriots to
."withdraw" as delegates, though we can
not see how this, act will rid them of the o
diura of their having been 'nt there by the
party to which they belong.
There was any amount of cheering when
ever any promiuent man made his appear
ance, and great was the enthusiasm when
the delegates from Massachusetts and South
Carolina, headed by Gov. Orr and Gen
Couch, were asked to come forward, arm
in arm.
On motion of Mr. Cowan, of Penn'a, a
committee of two from each State and Ter
ritory was appointed to prepare resolutions
and an address. Mr. Cowan and Hon.
Wm. Bigler represented Pennsylvania on
this committee. ' , '
The committee ; on resolutions reported
the following platform, or declaration of
principles: ! r .
The National Union Convention now as
sembled in the city of Philadelphia, com
posed of delegates from every State and
Territory in the Union, admonished by the
solemn lesson which for the last five years,
it has pleased the Supreme Ruler of the U
ni verse to give the American people ; pro
foundly grateful for the return of puacC; de
sirous, as a large majority of their country
men, in all sincerity to. forget and to forgive
the past; revering the Constitution as it
comes to us frqm our forefathers; regard
ing the Union in its restoration as more sa
cred than ever ; looking with anxiety into
the future as of instant importance hereby
u-suesand proclaims the following declaration
of principles and purposes, on which they
have with perfect unanimity agreed: .
First. We hail with gratitude to Alniirrh-
ty God the end of the war and the returu of
peace to our afflicted and beloved land.
Second. The war just closed has maintain
ed the authority of the Constitution, with
all the powers winch it confers and all of
the restrictions which it imposes upon the
General Government unabridged rnd unal
tered; and it has preserved the Union, with
the equal rights, dignity, and authority of
tne stares periectand unimpaired.
lhird. Representation in the Congress of
the United States and in the Electoral Col
lege isa right recognized in the Constitution
as abiding in every State, and as a duty im
posed upon its people, fundamental in its
nature, and essential to the existence of our
republican institutions; and neither Con
gress nor the General Government has any
poweror authority to deny this right to any
btate, or to withhold its enjoyment under
the Constitution from the people thereof.
Fourth. We callupon the people of the
United States to elect to Congress, -as 'mem
bers thereof, none but men who admit this
fundamental right of. repretientation, and
who will receive to seats thereiu loyal repre
sentatives from every State in allegiance to
the United States, subject only to the ConJ
stuutionai ngnt ct each House to judge of
the election returns and qualifications of its
own members.
Fifth. The Constitution of the United
States and laws made in pursuance thereof
are the supreme law of the land, anything
in the Constitution or laws of any State to
the contrary notwithstanding. All powers
not conferred by the Constitution upon the
General Government nor prohibited by it to
States, are reserved to the States, or to the
people thereof, and anion" the rights thus
reserved to the States is the right to pre
scribe the qualifications for the elective f ran
ch lse therein, which right Congress cannot
interfere with.. ( No State or combination of
States has the right to withdraw from the
Union, or to exclude, through their action
in Congress or otherwise, any other State or
States from the Union. The Union of these
States is perpetual, and cannot be dissolved.
Sixth. Such amendments to the Constir
tution of the United States may be made
by the people thereof as they may deem ex-
Eedient, but only in the mode pointed out
y its provisions; and in proposing such a
mendments, whether by Congress or by a
convention, and in ratifying the same, . all
the States of the Union have an equal and
an indeteasable right to a voice and a vote
thereon. - , , . ' '
Seventh. Slavrw ;a'
prohibited, and there is neither desire nor
purpose on the part of the Southern States
that " should ever be re-established uponievery shape and form which great calami
the soil or within the jurisdiction of the U
mted states; and the enfranchised slaves
in all the States of the Union should re
ceive, in common with all their inhabitants,
equal protection in every right of person
and pro(erty.
Eighth. -while we regard as ntterlv in
valid and never to be assumed, or mado nf h
I - - ... . - .....v...
binding force, any obligation incurred or un- 1
dertaken in making war against the United
States, we hold the debt of the nation to be
sacred and inviolable, and we proclaim our
purpose in discharging this duty, as in per
forming all other National obligations, to
maintain; unimpaired and unira peached, the
honor and faith of the republic. ;
Ninth. It is the , duty of the National
Government to recognize the services of the
Federal soldiers and ' sailors in the contest
just closed, by meeting promptly and fully
all their just and rightful claims for services
they have rendered the nation, and by ex
tending to thoseof them who have survived,
and to the. widows and orphans of those
;who,'fell, the .most generous and considerate
Andrew Johnson, President of
the United States, who in his great office
has proved, stead fast iu- his devotion to the
Constitution and the laws, and the interest
of his country unmoved by persecution
and undeserved reproich ; having faith un
assailable in the people,:and in the princi
ples of free -government, we recognize a
Chief :MagLstrate .whois worthy of the na
tion, and equal to the great crisis "upon
which his lot is cast, and we tender to him,
in the discharge of his high and responsi
ble duties our profound respect, and the
assurances of our cordial and sincere support.
The. reading of the resolutions was fre
quently interrupted by bursts of applause,
and at the close the audience rose en masse
to give vent to their satisfaction. .The res
olutions were adopted by a unanimous vote.
( ! The address was read by Mr. Raymond,
who was frequently interrupted by applause.
The document is' a very lengthy one,Tand
mainly but au amplification of -the resolu
tions. There are, however, a few para
graphs which are important as showing the
temper and purposes of the mauagers of the
Convention, and we, therefore, give them,
as follows:- - ' ; :
. History affords no instance where a peo
ple, so powerful iu numbers, in resources
and in public spirit, after a war so long in
its duration, so destructive in its progress,
and so adverse in its issue, have accepted
defeat and its consequences with so much
of good faith as has marked the conduct of
the people lately in insurrection against the
Uni.ed States. Beyond all question this
has been largely due flo the wise generosity
with which their enforced surrender was ac
cepted by the President of the United
States and the generals in immediate com
mand of their armies, and to the liberal
measures which were afterward taken to re
store order, tranquility and law to the States
where ali had for the time been overthrown.
No steps could have been better calculated
to command the respect, win the confidence,
revive the patriotism and secure the perma
nent and affectionate allegianee of the peo
ple of the South to the Constitution and
laws of the Union than those which have
been so firmly taken and so steadfastly pur
sued by the President of the United States.
'And if that confidence and loyalty have
been since impaired if the people of the
South are to-day less cordial in their allegi
ance than they were immediately upon tho
close of flie war, we believe it is due to the
changed tone of the legislative department
of the general Government toward them ;
to the action by which Congress has endeav
ored to supplant and defeatrthe President's
wise and betieficient policy of restoration ;
to their exclusion from all participation in
o'ur common Government ; to the withdraw
al from them of rights conferred and guar
anteed by the Constitution, and to the evi
dent purpose of Congress, in the exercise
of a usurped and unlawlul authority, to re
duce them from the rank of free and equal
members of a republic of States; with rights
and dignities unimpaired, to the condition
of conquered provinces and a conquered
people, in all things subordinate and subject
to the will of their conquerers ; free only to
obey laws in making which they are not al
lowed to share. No people has ever yet ex
isted whose lo3-alty and faith such treatment
long continued would not alienate and im
pair. . And the ten millions of Americans
who live in the South would be unworthy
citizens of a free country, degenerate sons
of a heroic ancestry, unfit ever to become
guardians of the rights and liberties be
queathed to us by the fathers and iounders
of this Republic, if they could accept, with
uncomplaining submissiveness; the humili
ations thus sought to be imposed upon them.
Resentment of injustice is always ami evcry
'.tchrre essential to freedom; and the spirit
which prompts the States and people lately
in insurrection, but insurgent now no longer,
to protest against the imposition of un
just and degrading conditions, makes
them all the more worthy to share in the
government of a free commonwealth, and
gives still firmer assurance of the future
power and freedom of the Republic, For
whatever responsibility the Southern peo
ple may have incurred in resisting the au
thority of the National Gevernment and in
taking up arms for its overthrow, they may
be beld to answer, as individuals, before the
judicial tribunals of the land, and for that
conduct, as societies and organized commu
nities, they have already paid the most fear
ful penalties, that can fall on offending
States in the losses, the sufferings and hu
miliation of unsuccessful war. But what
ever may be the guilt or the punishment of
the conscious authors of the insurrection,
candor and common justice demand the con
cession that the irreat mass of tho.s wlm
became involved in its responsibility acted
upon wnat tney belieed to be their duty,
in defense of what they had been taught to
believe their rights, or under a compulsion,
physical and moral, : which they were pow
erless to resist. Nor can it be amiss to re
member that terrible as have been the be
reavements and the losses of this war, they
have fallen exclusively upon neither section
and upon neither party that they have fal
len, indeed, with far greater weight upon
those with whom the war began ; that in
the death of relatives and friends, the dis
persion of families, the disruption of social
systems and social . ties, the overthrow of
Governments, of law and of order, the de
struction of property and of forms and
modes and of means of industry the loss of
political commercial and moral influence in
ties can assume, the States and tfeonl wh;h
engaged in the war against the Government
of the United States, have suffered tenfold
more than those who remained in allegiance
to its Constitution and laws. These consid
erations may not, as they certainlv do nnt.
justify the action ofthe insurgent States
win, uu ju;i f-v-iiuiu-xs miuu win reiUSe to i
them very considerable weight iu dotcrmin-'
ut no just or generous mind will refuse to
ing the iine of conduct which tho govern- j
toward them; V ', ' J ;.,;' "'"
""We call upon you, therefore,, by every
consideration of your own' dignity and safe
ty, and in i the name of liberty throughout
the world,' to complete the work of restora-:
tion and peace which the President of the
United States has so well begun, and which
the policy adopted and the principles assert
ed by the present Congress alone obstruct.
The time is close at hand when members of
a new Congress are to be elected. If that
Congress shall perpetuate this policy, and,
by excluding loyal States and people from
representation in its halls, shall continue
the k usurpation - by whk-h' the legislative
powers of .the government are now exercis
ed, common prudence comefc"us to antici
jxite augmented discontent, a sullen icith
dratrfd from' flit duties awT oblirjettions of
the Federal Government, internal dissension
and a general collision of sentiments and
pretentions which map renew, in a still more
fearful shape, the cirif icar from tchich we
hnvejnst emerged. We call upon you to in:
terpose your power to . prevent the recur
rence of so transceudant a calamity, r We
call vpo yon in every Congressional district
of erery State, to secure the election of mem'
hers, tcho, icliatever otlusr differences may

committee was appointed to wait on
President Johnston and present him with a
copy of the proceedings, etc, after which
the Convention adjourned. :'
The distinction between evidences of sin
cere penitence and utterances coined in view
of an eniergenc', and for a special purpose,"
should be borne steadily ib mina, more
especially, in view of the high game being
played at Philadelphia. The Convention
purgod itself of Vallandigham and his set,
solely because it would be impolitic to per
mit them to sit as members. This act of
the convention evinces the expertness of
the managers, but the choosing of traitors
and copperheads to go to Philadelphia was
high proof of the actual state of things, and
the real danger. ; However the convention
may strive to cover this up and suppress all
appearance of it there, the danger remains
and will .grow, and is all the more to be
dreaded J'or the attempt to hide it. A
masked battery is more to be feared because
more destructive than au open' one. 1
In the Philadelphia convention Louisiana
has a certain number of mild-mannered
gentlemen, consenting for the time to abate
the habitual expression of treasonable sen
timents, whereas the true, representative
of Louisiana, a a reconstructed State claim
ing equality in the Union, is the New Or
leans massacre, the terrible fact that peace
able aud orderly citizens are compelled to
flee on account of their Unionism a state
of things strikingly similar to that which
existed in the early davs of the rebellion.
! It is a stupendous fraud the Philadelphia
convention has deliberately undertaken to
perpetrate. Governor Orr says the South
accepts the verdict ot the war, is peaceable
and loyal, deserves to be treated well, and
would act as she should act if permitted to
re-enter, in perfect equality,- the Union.
How must the words, in view of the daily
evidence of their falsity, blister his tongue!
We refer not to isolated cases, to occasional
disturbances resulting from a disordered so
cial condition ; but to the glaring fact that al
most the entire military force of the country
scarcely suffices to protect Union men from
the growing . rebellious, spirit all over the
South. We refer not to irresponsible or
distorted statements, but to the testimony
proceeding from amoug officers and living
witnesses in the persons ot fugitives fleeing
for their lives, bringing with them warnings
by Vigilant Committees and self-appoin ted
"regulators," whose office it is to "clean
out" Union men. Such facts' as these told
us what was the Southern spirit immediate
ly proceeding ; the rebellion they prove
what it is now ; and they are no more to be
disregarded or treated lighlty now than they
were then. , . .
Tho Philadelphia Convention is a stupen
dons and de-perate scheme to mask the de
formities of the South. But it would be as
reasonable to attempt to mask a volcano by
throwing a blanket over its mouth, as to un
dertake to conceal the facts as shown in the
eruptive rebelliousness prevalent and grow
ing in ' nearly everv Southern State, with
speeches and resolutions at Philadelphia.
The fugitives and expelled Union men, ar
riving in Washington, are the living wit
nesses of a damnable truth which a thou
sand Philadelphia Conventions, with ever
so much clap-trap of South Carolina, and
Massachusetts arm-in-arm, cannot blot out.

General - Howard Commissioner of the
Freedmen's Bureau, has wriuealetter in
reply to some inquiries made by the Hon.
Roswell Hart, member of Congress from
New A'ork, concerning the operations , of
the bureau. The General details the organ
ization and work of the bureau, giving its
statistics from June, 1865, to June, 1806,
from which it appear that the number of
persons receiving rations is decreasing, and
that the poor whites dependent on Govern
ment bounty are equal in number to the
blacks. The letter closes with the opinion
that, in the present condition of affairs, the
bureau is indispensable. ;
