Gen. JOHH F. HARTRAITrT, of Montg'y.
Col. JACOB M. CAMPBELL, of Cambria
The Vice Presidency.:
When the name of Speaker Colfax for
the Vice Presidency was presented before
the Indiana Republican State Convention,
that of the gre Senator from the same
State, Hon O. P. Morton, was" suggested
in the same connection. ,. Having originally
determined not to allowhip. friends to make
him a candidate for that or any other posi
tion, the Senator hearing tha.fc the effort was
nevertheless made, telegraphed from W ash
ington that he hoped none of hid friends
would offer any objections to the endorse
merit of Colfax. The result was the enthu
siastic nomination of the latter. 1 his ex
ample so characteristic of the generosity
and magnanimity . of Governor Morton, is
" worthy of imitation in every section of the
Union. " " :-
In the history of both the great . parties
of Pennsylvania no candidate has ever been
presented to the suffrage 6f a national con
vention with more enthusiasm than Gover
nor Curtin. When a great State, after full
deliberation,' presents the name cf a distin
guished citizen for a high offioo, it should
be the common duty of all the members of
the party not simply to accept but to honor
the decree.', ;
As many as ten persons have been desig
nated, by the Republicans of as many dif
ferent states,-for the Vice Presidential nom
ination of the Chicago National Convention.
It is probable that half a dozen more names
will yet be added to, the list. Of course,
only one of these can be taken. Who that
one will be, it is idle to conjecture. This
however, ia certain, that the National Oon-
vention will choose with the greatest circum
spection. Three stupendous betrayals by
Vice Presidents stand out conspiciously in
the history of the politics of the United
States., The point of danger is disclosed.
A new and untried man in the Republican
ranks will not be accepted. Nor yet a man
who has' evinced any degree of uncertainty
in his course. The place demands an indi
vidual who is a Republican not from poKcy
but from conviction , who has exhibited
marked, steadiness in his career, and a
promptness and certainty which has not
been baffled or turned aside. . The Republi
can masses will accept only such a candidate,
and there is not the slightest probability
that the Convention will entertain for one
moment the idea of selecting one that doe3
. not meet the requirements of the case. .' ,
The President's 'Policy." The line
of the President's defense, it is said, will be
the submission of a demurrer taking the
ground that the matters charged against
him are frivlous, and that if true would
not warrant impeachment. It will next be
intended that the Senate is not a constitu-
tional court, certain States being unrepre
sented ; and it will be contended further
more that certain members having express
ed an opinion are not constitutionally qual
ified to act as judges. It is said in Demo
cratic quarters that Mr. Stanbery tells the
President that he will not be convicted, and
that he bases his opinion chiefly on the be
lief that opposition to Mr. Wide will-clear
him. .
- The Latest Horror. By the explosion
of the steamer Magnolia,, near Cincinnati on
' the 18th, over.one hundred persons almost
instantly perished. It is said that of one hun
dred and sixty persons on board, passengers
and crew, only fifty-four lives are known to
have been saved. No plausible explanation
of the cause of this terrible disaster has yet
appeared, but we trust there may be a strict
investigation made, and that any living par
ties who may prove to be responsible for
such wholesale slaughter will be held to
the tJosest accountability.
Tue Elections of 1868. The next po
litical eontesifc is that in Connecticut, and
preparations have been made for a thorough
canvas of the State. The Republicans,
though the odds are against them, have
good reasons to hope tor success: Among
others who will visit Connecticut in a few
days to assist in the contest ia Ex-Governor
3 iSCurtiQ, of this State, who will render effec
'ii9flryice. " 'Ah Additional Judoship. Governor
Geary. Wednesday, March 18th, appointed
D. Watson Rowe, Esq., of Chambersburg.
Franklin county, an additional Judge of the
Sixteenth J uditiai : District. The appoint
ment was solicited by the members of the
Bar, aod will therefore give satisfaction. -
Why Seymour Declines.
The Ohio State Jovrnal makes the fol
lowing statement in explanation of Ex-Gov
ernor Seymour's refusal to be a candidate
for the Presidency : '
"We happen to know that there is on file
in the State Department sworn evidence of
Horatio Seymour! s complicity with the re
bellion, tor the reason mat it Decatoe our
duty while serving in an official capacity ' to
prepare autl transmit to the Government
evidence to which we, refer. Mr. Seymour
is probably aware that should he ever De
come a candidate for the Presidency, -the
statements of reliable witnesses will convict
him of having been, in the tali ot lbb4, m
confidential correspondence with Clement
IT T T 1 1 . il r.l
U. Ulay and James 1'. iiojcouukj, uieinu-i.-
mg.as Commissioners oi me oouiueru
States in Canada. It is a somewhat singu
lar but at the same time a significant fact,
that the direct proof of Seymour's treason
able correspondence with the enemy has
never been made known to the pubiic.''.
This positive statement seems to demand
attention. If there is any such evidence ou
file in the State Department it ought to be
published ' at once.' . A call from Congress
would probably bring it forth. -
A New Gold Field. An immense gold
field has been discovered in Peru, the; metal
being so abundant that the Indian, with the
simplest and rudest mechanical aid, is able

The Way of the World. The editor
ot the Rochester (New York.) Democrat
asserts that scarcely any ot the writers tor
the New York World ore Democrats at
heart but generaly Republicans. They con
duct that-journal on Democratic principles
just as a lawyer dcienda criminal lormon
ev. Thev found a numerous body of Dcm
Ocratic clients in and around New York sad
ly in want of an advocate without any body
to state their case in a proper manner or
Dlead for them before the bar of public o
pinion. They got hold of the World and,
on speculation, made it a Democratic organ
and did the best they could to get a verdict
for their client. It should be added, tliat
as men of principle they are entitled to but
little respect.
Ttie Connellbville Railroad. There
seems to be a fair prospect ot this company
realizing their lone deferred expectations.
Since the favorable action of the Council of
Baltimore, we understand the ' Baltimore
and Ohio Company have taken ot the Con
nellsville bonds one million of dollars ; and
as to the individual subscriptions, we are
assured that in Baltimore tbev are very lib
eral, and that equally liberal oners have
been made alon? the line ot the road. There
seems to be no doubt that the condition of
the two millions attached to the action of
Raltimore city will be early complied with,
when work will be resumed and vigorously
prosecuted to completion.
General Reynolds, who, until n successor
to General Hancock is "appointed, will suc
ceed him in command at New Orleans, is
an able man. and an accomplished soldier,
and entertains view3 quite different from
some which General Hancock has avowed
and attempted to enforce. That be wiil car
ry out the retirin General's orders in eve
ry respect, is hardly probable, but will be
disposed to return rather to the policy of
General Sheridan. It is hardly probable
that he will be permitted long to hold the
position, unless indeed the President is too
much occupied or feels his own oflicial life
too short to remove him.
The Texas papers speak ot the appear
ance of grasshoppers in great numbers. The
Colorado Valley,in the neighborhood of La
grange swarms with them. They are now
very small, not half as large as a common
fly, but seem to cover the whole fiice of the
earth. A private letter from Bastrop says
that the whole country is covered with them
in countless numbers. What is to be the
result seems to be a matter of mere conjec
ture. Some think that their early appear
ance affords a hope that they will disappear
also early, and perhaps before they have
done much damage to vegetation.
A whLskey rebellion, on a small scale, is
carried on at Richmond, near Philadelphia,
and United States Marshal Ellmaker and
assistants find raids on the rebels both in
teresting and profitable. On Wednesday
morning March 18th, the authorities made
a second descent and succeeded in captur
ing twelve stills, some of them in operation
at the time, and others which had ceased
work but a short time before. Most of
these stills were of small capacity, hut all
the more.- dangerous from the fact, as their
owners could readily remove them to a place
of safety in time of danger.
A Good Proposition. Mr. Bromwell,
of this State, has introduced a joint resolu
tion, which was referred to -the Committee
on Expenditures, providing that every Sen
ator and member of the House shall be
charged ten per cent, of the cost of report
ing and publishing in the Globe all remarks
and speeches made daring the sessions of
the Senate or House in the Committee of
the Whole ; provided, that the same shall
not appiy to one hour of the time occupied
by the Senator or member who reports a bill
or other matter for action.
The whole plan of Radical reconstruction
originated with Andrew Johnson, and it is
among the providences of these extraordi
nary times that, while his defrntinn has de
layed the enforcement of his own doctrines,
that defection was so gross and inexcusable
that it united the whoje Republican partv
as one man upon nis once iavonte measure,
and is now carrying it to assured triumph.

present., '
The entrance of the 1'resident 3 counsel
attracted general curiosity, as some ques
tions had arisen as to the relations between
Judge Black and one or two others men
tioned as retained by the President, and the
presence or absence of these were expected
to supply an answer. It was at once notic
ed that Judge Black was absent, and that
Win. Groesbeck.of Cincinnati, was present.
, It is known that Judge Black had urged
the President to resign, and that his advice
ia this matter reached the verge of open
rupture.'" There were also other points of
marked difference between them as to the
line of defense, and as these could not be
satisfactorily arranged, J udge Black refused
to act' The withdrawal of Judge Black is
considered as most favorable to the trial
coming to an end without, at least, interrup
tion from violence.
Gerrit Davis, objected to the Senate sit
ting as a Court because ten States were not
represented. The question was referred to
the Senate for decision, by the Chief -J U7-
tice, when all voted "No," except Davis
and M'Creery.
The counsel for the President then pro
ceeded to read Mr. Johnson s answers to
the artielesof impeachment, which have not,
as yet been published.
T7hat a Democrat Eays.
We do not dispute that the Senate i3 a
political court, and has the power, if not
the riftht, to condemn an Executive that
has violated the plainest principles cf states
manship. For example, if, as President,
the officer has refused or neglected to exe
cute the laws passed by Congress, then,
though he has broken no law, he is amtiua
ble tor high crimes and misdemeanors in
neglecting to ex-, cute them. Louisville
Whenever Democratic journals of char
acter, and respected for their caDdor and
ability, attempt to examine the principles
involved in this impeachment, they must
follow the same reasoning, and come inevi
tably to the same conclusion, as our Louis
ville cotemporary above quoted.
The President and his two daughters
Wednesday March ISth, attended the fun
eral of Win. Slade (colored,) late the stew
ard of the Executive Mansion. The flow
ers on the coffin were contributed by the la
dies. The Mayor of Washington and the
attending physicians, together wifh other
white citizens, were present. Both white
and colored ministers (4 the gospel officia
ted at the ceremonies. The pall bearers were
in part white. The deceased was deserved
ly resp2cte l by all who knew him, and had
accumulated considerable property.
In the Ohio Legislature a few days since,
Chistophci Hughes, of Butler county, in
the old Vallandigham district, got off the
following imoious passage in a political ha-
rangue: 1 would rather trust trie JJemo
cratic party in political matters than God
Almisrhtv !" Hughes is said to be a candi
date for Congress in the Third District,now
represented by Gen. fechenck. A3 the Ke-
publicans have a majority of nearly "two
thousand m the district, it is not probable
that Mr. Hughes will succeed in his aspi
rations. i
When the political pot boils so furiously,
as it has within tbe last month at Washine-
ton.thcre is sura to be much froth and scum
on its agitated surface. The last queer thing
to turn up to the daylight is the existence
of a few Radical gentlemen who don't like
Gen. Grant, and want Wade and Wilson to
be the ticket. When these Senators were
informed of the contemplated honor, thev
declined to be counted in, and the froth has
apparently subsided. The new movement
perished in its birth.
"Among the iter&s of the State appropia

to the soldiers of 1812. allowing the pen

which is a high estimate it is difficult to
see how there should be, a half a century af-
tsr the war closed. four thousand pensioners.
We do not knowjatthis moment the quota of
Pennsylvania to the volunteer army of 1812-
181 4, but certainly tour thousand men must
have been an immense proportion of it.
Hon. David Wilmot died at his residence
in Towanda, on Monday, March 1 6th, after
an illness of hix davs. To those who have
been observant of him during the past half
dozen years the announcement of his de
cease will cause no surprise, as it was mani
fest that his health was gradually wasting
under a severe nervous prostration. He
was born in Bethany, Wayne county, in this
State, January 20, 1814.
Along" the Schuylkill river, between the
Falls and Norrstown dam, a distance of ten
'miles, there are 104 manufactories, employ

Of these 59 are cotton and woollen mills, 13
