1 What is to be Decided. : 1
- The Election in Pennsylvania, in October,
is to decide more than the success of candi
dates for State and county offices, says the
Telegraph! Contests at the ballot-box now
decide upon principles, whether political
parties so will it or not" The people of the
South who armed for the destruction ot the
Government : were whipped on the" battle
field. They resorted to the sword as an ar
biter of differences which could have been
adjusted without its aid, and they were de
feated. . But , they are not satisfied with an
overthrow in battle, they are not content
with the logic of war. The ballot-box is
now to decide still further the injustice of
treason; the power and ability of those
who believe in strong government. These
facts are all important. It is necessary that
the voter know there is as much force in a
ballot as in a bullet, 'when the contest is be
tween loyal men and traitors. The people
of Pennsylvania must decide with the ballot
as they did with the bullet, whether or not
traitors shall control the government. We
must decide whether Northern ideas of good
government, of order, peace and observance
ofthe law shall prevail, or whether the
Southern idea of resistance to the law, en
couragement of disorder, defiance of author
ities, murder, arson and revolution, shall be
established. This is the issue of the con
test now waging in Pennsylvania.

The Object. The New York Herald,
which has suddenly become . the favorite
organ of the President, intimites that the
object of the removal of the district com
manders is to give all the disfranchised reb
els an opportunity to vote at the approaching
Southern elections in defiance of existing
laws. This result is to be brought about by
a general amnesty proclamation releasing all
the secession leaders from the existing pen
alties, and overriding, by an edict from the
White House, the law3 of Congress. The
Ilerdld contends that in this event it would
become the duty of the district command
ers to grant universal suffrage, and adds :
It may be m anticipation of a neglect or
refusal to perform this "duty on the part, of
the original five military commanders of the
districts that the President has thought fit
to remove them,' or some of them, prior to
the issue of an amnesty proclamation." The
present indignation of the country at the
removal of Sheridan and Sickles will be
greatly increased it this conjecture of the
object of these changes should prove correct.
Execution of Winnemore. George
W. Winnemore, convicted of the murder of
Mrs. Magilton, of Philadelphia, was execu
ted at Moyamensing prison, in that city, at
11. o clock, A. M., on Thursday, August
29th. He made a few remarks to thank
those who had been kind to him. He would
not - receive the ministrations of any pro
fessors of religion, and protested his inno
cence to the last At a quarter after eleven
the" body was cut down, and it was found
that death had resulted from strangulation.
The brain was large, clean and active, with
less of the vital fluids than usual. Before
death Winnemore said, that at death, his
spirit would remain in the world to haunt
and disturb those who had persecuted him..
He died without professing religion, a con-
firmed spiritualist,. There was very little
popular excitement about the execution.
The failure of the N ational Labor Con
gress to accomplish much good is partially
accounted for by the statement that its lead,
era endeavored to engineer it for the benefit
of the Democratic party. c. .

A' Worthy Candidate.
' The loyal voters Ithe Common wealth
ask . rio higher tribute; to the worth and char
acter of Judge Williams than the, following
neat compliment paid.him by, the only daily
Democratic paper of, Western Pennsylvania
the day following hisnomuiation. It said :
The ridminatioirof the Honi- Henry W."
Williams as a candidate forjudge of the
Supreme Court is a good one. lie was the
best man named before the Republican con
vention, and possesses legal and moral qual
ifications for the responsible position to
which he has been nominated. Both par
ties have now presented their candidatesi
An important duty, has been, faithfully,, dig;
charged by the respective conventions. The
campaign may now be conducted vcitliout
personal aspirations, and decided upon the
principles of the two great parties. , This is
as it should be. It is an auspicious sign of
the ' times, and if the county conventions
are equally fortunate in the selection ot leg
islative candidates, thero will be a stop put
to the deplorable corruption at the seat of
government under a new reign of honest
men and conscientious legislators. Pitts
burgJi l'ost, June 2$th, 1867. ; " C-
The Post, in referring to. the above, on
the 29th of August was pleased to say :
"We-4iave nothing to take batfk or modify.-
Of Judge Williams' private or legal
reputation we have nothing but words of
praise, and however it may suit some pug
nacious and heady politicians, we cannot
bring ourselves to view personal assaults as
either wise or politic." ,
The Post, no doubt, speaks the truth in
regard to the "legal and moral qualifica
tions" of Hon. Henry W. Williams, the
Republican candidate for Supreme Judge ;
and yet, in the face of this positive testi
mony of a candid opponent, the "pug
nacious" small fry Copperhead papers per
sist in denouncing Mr. Williams as a "hig
gling, fanatical, curly-headed, - sour-faced
adventurer," with "no reputation." All
honest and well-meaning voters will view
these "personal assaults" on the ."private"
reputation of a worthy man ia their proper
light; and, on the Second Tuesday of Oc
tober, thousands will vote for Hon. Henry
W.: Williams, who,: otherwise, would 'have
supported his opponent. Let the people
remember these facts, and go to the polls
with the assurance that Mr. Williams will
be elected by an overwhelming and trium
phant majority.
' ! Grant's Indictment of the President.'
The Detroit Post regards the letter of
General Grant as the grand indictment on
which Andrew Johnson "will be tried and
convicted, and removed from office." In
the language of Grant, he is charged with
an "effort to defeat the laws of Congress,"
fot granting "a triumph" to the "unrecon
structed element in the South those who
did all they eould to break up this Govern
ment by arms and now wish to be the only
element consulted as to the method of re
storing order ;" for "emboldening them
renewed opposition to the will of the loya!
masses, believing that they had the Execu
tive with them ;" for removing Gen. Sher
idan, though "he had performed his civi
duties faithfully and intelligently ;" for dis
regarding General Thomas's services in bat
tling tor tne Union, and assigning him to
relieve Gen. Sheridan against his earnest
protest : for removing Gen. Hancock when
tne puoiic interests demanded his services
in a "complicated department;", for disre
gardmg military interests, pecuniary inter
ests, patriotic interests;" for defying "the
expressed wish of the country that Genera
Sheridan should not be removed," and the
"earnest remonstrance of the General of the
Army, who protested, in vain, aeainst it,"
in "the name of a patriotic people who have
sacrificed hundreds of. thousands of lives
and thousands of millions of treasure to
preserve the integrity and union of this
iu xerK3 county me Administration is
turning out all the assistant assessors, and
replacing them with Democrats of the real
Copper ring. This is, of course, a cam
paign measure, and may be followed up all
over the btate preparatory to the election.
We do not think the aid or friendship of
Andrew Johason will help Judge Shars
wood, nor do we believe that gentleman
himself values it very highly. Once before
it was attempted to buy up Pennsylvania
with post-offices, but a disastrous failure
was the result. This old Commonwealth,
with its broad fields and substantial, indus
trious population, is no ground for a "poor
TTU-.LC uuuucian to onerare in.
Judge Williams' Pkospects. Ac
counts from Western Pennsylvania are most
cheering. West of the Alleghenies Judge
Williams' name is a tower of strength, and
will rally to his support thousands of oppo
sition voters. His spotless integrity his
unblemished reputation his unquestioned
loyalty in the darkest hours have won for
him hosts of friends. More than that, the
ungenerous and ungentlemanly course of
the Democratic press, in coarsely attacking
his private character with, slander and false-;
hood, has aroused a feeling of general indig
nation that will tell powerfully next October.

with it, omitted no opportunity to render it
assistance, were even nopeiui or its success,
aiid no doubt were in some way;W other in
constant communication with Jefferson Da
vis and other public euemies.4?. Conspicuous
among this '-class was Jere. S.' rJlaekv th
leading spirit ot the i'emocratic party in
Pennsylvania, and at present the chief ad
viserotMr. Johnson, and principal insti
gator of his alarming proceedings. Were
we to attempt to characterize the. present
actions' of Mr Johnson; we could io no way
do it so fittingly a3 bj declaring that; hav
ing submitted himself. to tb.e..aJ.visemeut.of
such men as Black, he is acting up to the
standard of Pennsylvania Democracy, of
vorite and standard-bearer in the present
canvass. , Black and Sharswood belong to
the same school of politics, and it should be
enough for the loyal people of Pennsylvania
to know that the Democratic candidate, were
he to speak now, would approbate warmly
the course of Andrew Johnson and stimu
late him to further steps in the same direc
tion. - But - for the encouragement derived
from this school of politicians in the North
the rebellion would have- been put down at
least three years before it was. And now-
as then, true to their instincts and hympa,
thics, they have in a sense organized anew,
with Mr. Johnson at their head. We see.
therefore, that the old issue of Lovaltv and
Freedom has been thrust on the people of
Pennsylvania. All ot a sudden, through
this unholy combination and the desperate
actions and still more desperate intentions
of the ; President, which naturally result
t herefrom, other issues have been cast into
the shade and measurably set aside. This
has been the peculiar work of Pennsylvania
Democracy, led by Black with Sharswood
for standard-bearer. Of the latter's sympa
thyin common with the Democratic partv
in the North with the cause of the South
throughout the war ; of his support of the
peace-at-any-price doctrine and the candi
dates standing on that platform, there is no
shadow of doubt. His contribution to the
cause was tne opinion which he volunteered.
with no motive but the damaging effect it
might have on the loyal cause. ' That he is
now, as he was then, in perfect accord with
Black & Co., is indispntable ; and he there
by becomes the representative of the ideas
and purposes of Mr.' Johnson in his present
desperate .attempt to prevent the perfect
restoration of the country. I he. strong in
dictment framed by Grant against Andrew
Johnson applies equally to the tribe of Black,
Sharswood fc Co. By them no word of
alarm is spoken, no note of warning is
sounded, although we have reached one of
the gravest periods in our history. No in
telligent man can fail to perceive that the
Democratic party in Pennsylvania and the
desperate cause of Andrew Johnson are so
intimately connected that support of the
one is indorsement of the other. ConiU ,
In the speech at Canton, Ohio, a few days
since. Senator Sherman, after refering to
the adoption ot the Constitutional Amend
ment, said; "Even now, if the South, with
"the spirit that actuates Gen. Longstreet
"and others, would adont the amendment,
"and elect loyal Senators and members un
"der it, their admission to representation
"would be easy. I know what I say to you
"is true, when I declare that a majority of
"the Republican Senators and members
tlwould have admitted any Rebel State upon
"its adopting the Amendment and comply
ing with its terms." -
President Johnson opposed that Amend
ment. r Had he not done so the South would
have accepted it, and might now have been
in the Union. The worst of their present
misfortune the Southern States owe to their
persistence in taking bad advice. They
will never get out of the ditch till they
give up following a blind leader.
A tabular statement prepared from offi
cial sources by Governor Throckmorton,, and
furnished the War Department and the
military commander of Texas, shows that
withiu the last two year's the Indians have
murdered 155 persons, wounded 24, and
carried into captivity 43 men, women and
children.'. 1 Of the latter 29 have been re-f
claimed." In addition to these, it is known
that in the month ot July past, seven others
have been killed, four wounded and seven
carried off captives. The official report of
tne amount and value ot stock Jost is mea
gre, out the lollow.ng is the total ot the re
ports made. Horses, 4,781 ; cattle, 3i,838;
sheen and goats; 2,430. This is far from
being a complete statement of Indian den-
relations on xexas. . .

"we have had enough of military men."
