GOSSIP WITH OUR FRIENDS.—New Fork,via
Crowdeiland Ambiguois Railroad. Covered with
sweat and dust, way-worn and Weary; in a bad
humor, with a carpet bag and a headache. Find
the New .I"orkers_telt fold accursed. Man was
pursed with "The sweat of the brow." The New
Yorkers sweat all over. The Hotels all filled,
stores thronged,. streets overflowing not "With
milk and honey," and such a bustle as has not
been seen sinco befoie the war. Thousands of
Sontkern buyers are agglomerated here—no thin
ger of Hotelimthers now. The millenium has
come. The Southern golden lion lies down with
the Jamb-like merchants, and all is peace and
harmony.4-Once again the veritable Southerner
with his inevitable swagger, broad brimmed
slouch•hat, loose baggy clothes, pleasing address,
cheery laugh and social talkativeness and unap
peasable thirst for sherry coblers, claret punches
and brandy smashes—once more, I repeat, the
chivalrous Southerner permeates the streets of
New Yolk, and to his surprise sees co "grass on
Broadway even in the Park, where the
tramp of Union soldiers from "the accursed Yankee
States" has obliterated all vestages of even that.
My business threw me into association with a
number of them, and I heard but one opinion;
"whipped, by —1" I bail a long talk with
a very gentlemanly man from Mobile, who gave
me ayery interesting account of his experience.
Re had been in the army three years, and had had
command of a battery. I asked him if he had
been in the armies that invaded Pennsylvania "no
thank God !" was his reply, "but I was in a State
that was invaded.". He stated that he with his
friends had been misled as much by the peace
party of ttie North as by the secession faction at
Houle, that he had counted on assistance from the
-opposers-of the goveinment north, fur he could
- not imagine how people could talk as they did,
and not take a more active part. The burden of
his cry was, " the peace party." He wan-
ted to-know how We felt in our part of the coun
try about a foreign war, adding "Mexico is too
small a game-why can't we pitch into our mutu
qf friends, France and England?" He said, the
simple country people of the South, even among
the educated, who had never been north were
perfectly amazed, when they saw Sherman'airmy
marching through their country. In the first
place they bad no conception that it could be
done; and secondly, they firmly believed that the
Northern troops were an inferior race of men.--
"Why, said be," when I first saw the advance
guard of that army marching through . the town
in which I was (I was out of the army then) I
turned to some friends, as company after compa
ny marched past, headed by officers carrying sho
vels and spades and pick axes on their shoulders,
and said, "Boys, we have fought like devils, but
We never carried pick axes." With regard to
slavery. He believed that the white man of the
South would be benefitted and the negro injured
by its abolition, and that the plilauthropist of the
.North would hare heavy drafts made upon them
this whiter fur their support. So far as his.rie
quainter:tee extended he thought thatgood men as
a rule had owned many more - staves than they
needed. He also protested that Mr. Stevens
with the gulf States was ready to come back two
years ago. A. Southern man must brag a little—
so he boasted of the cost of his clothes ; "my boots
cost me four hundred and fifty dollars, my—"
"That's enough, sir," I interrupted him with—
"l-11 go you a hundred better on them in the same
hind of money." He grinned and asled me to take
For the past week I have not seen one drop of
rain. I' never experienced such hot weather in
all my life. It is almost impossible, to eat or
sleep. :I hurried out of the city, with a whole
some horror of the four fearful hours I would have
to spend in an enemy's country. A crazy man
sat wrth,his, keeper in the seat in front of me. At
times he was quite violent, and would exclaim in
heartrending tones, "Oh God, I am dead!" I
solemnly believe that the Directors put that man
there on my account. Let them look to it, or I
will expose them. In the words of the old man
in Excelsiorpthey had better "try not the pass"—

SPEECH OF PRESIDENT JOHNSON
A delegation of Southerners, representing nine
of the rebel States, visited the President recently
and addressed him, professing the, most devoted
loyalty for themselves and rebels generally. The
following is a revised copy of the reply of the
GENTLEMEN :—I can only say, in reply. to the
remarks of your chairman, that I am highly grat
ified to receive the assurances he has given me.
They are morethan I could have expected under
the circumstances. I must sayl was unprepared
to receive so numerous -a delegation otv this occa
sion ; it was uffexpected ; I had no idea it was to
be so large;ror represent so many States. When
I expressed as I did my willingness to see at any
time so many of Y'ort as chose to-do me the honor
to call upon me, and stated I should be grid
ified at receiving any manifestatibus of regard you
might think proper to make: I was totally unpre
pared for anything equal to the
. present demon
stration. I am free to say, it excites in my mind
feelings and emotions that language is totally in
adequate to express: When I look back upon
my past actions and recall a period scarcely more
than four short years ago, when I stood battling
fur_ principles which ninny of you opposed and
thought were wrong, I was battling for the same
principles that actuate me to-day, and which prin
ciples I thank my God you have come forward
on this occasion to manifest a disposition to sup
port. I say now, as I havii said on ninny former
occasions, that I entertain no personal resent
ments, enmities, or animosities to any living soul
south of Mason and Dixon's line, however much
he may have differed from me in principle. The
ataild I then took I claim to have been the only
true one. I remember how I stood pleading with
my Southern brethren when they stood wittitheir
hatsin their hands ready to turn their backs upon
the United States; how I implored them to stand
with me there and maintain our rights and fight
our battles under the laws and Constitution of the
United States. I think now, as I thought then,
- - .
and endeavored triliduce them to believe, that
our true , Teasition was under the law and under
the Constitution of the Union with the institution
of slavery in it; but if that principle made an issue
that rendered a disintegration possible—if that,
made an issue which should prevent us from trans
raiding to our children a country as bequeathed_
to us by our fathers—l had nothing else to do but
* toistand by the Government, be the consequen
ces what they might. I said then. what you all
know, that I was for the institntions of the coun
try as guaranteed by the Constitution, but above
all things I was for the Union of the States. I
remember the,taunts, the jeers, the scowls with
which I was treated. I remember the circle lot
stood around me, and I remember the threats and
intimidations that were freely uttered by the men
who opposed me, and whom I wanted to befriend
and guide by the light that led me ; but, feeling
conscious in my own integrity, and that I was
right, I heeded not what they might say or do to
me, and was inspired and encouraged to do my
duty regardless of aught else, and lived to
see the realization of my predictions and the fa
tal error of those whom I vainly essayed to save
from the results I could not but forges. Gentle.
men, we have passed through this rebellion. I
say we, for it was we who were responsible for
it. Yes, the South made the issue, and I know
the nature of the Southern people well enough to
know that when they have become convinced of
an error they frankly acknowledge it, in a man
ly, open, direct manner: and now in the perform
ance of that duty, or, indeed, in any act they un
dertake to perform, they do it heartily and frank
ly : and now that they come to me I understand
them as saying that: "We made the issue.
We set up the Union of the States against the in
stitution of slavery; we selected as-arbitrator the
God of battles; the arbitrament was the sword.
The issue was fairly and honorably met. Both
the questions presented have been settled against
us, and we are prepared to accept the issue." I
find on all sides this spirit of candor and honor
prevailing. It is said by all—the issue was ours,
and the judgment has been given against us, we
feel bound in honor to abide by the arbitrament.
In doing this, we aro doing ourselves no dishonor,
and should not feel humiliated or degraded, but
rather that we are ennobling ourselves by our ac
tion ; and we should feel that the Government
has treated us magnanimously upon the terms it
has so magnanimously proffered us. So far as I
am concerned, personally, I am uninfluenced by
any question, whether it affects the North or the
South, the East or the West. I stand where I
did•of 'old, battling for the Constitution of the
United States. In doing so I know I oppose
some of you gentlemen of the South when thiS
doctrine of secession was being urged upon the
country, and the declaration of your right to break
up the Government and disintegrate the Union
was made. I stand today as I have ever stood,
firmly in the opinion that if a monopoly contends
against this country the monopoly must go down,
and the country must go up. Yes, the issue was
made by the South against the Government, and
the Government has triumphed and the South,
true to her ancient instincts of frankness and man
ly honor, comes forth and expresses her willing
ness to abide the result of ttie decision in good
faith.' Mille I think that the rebellion has been
arrested and subdued, and am happy in the con
sciousness of a duty well performed, I want not
only you, but the people of the world, to know(
that while I dreaded and feared disintegration of
the States, l am equally opposed - to consolidation
. or concentration of power here, under whatever
- guise or name ; and if the issue is forced upon us,
I shall still endeavor to pursue the same efforts ,
to dissuade from this doctrine of running to ex
tremes; but I say let the same rules be applied.
Let the Constitution be our guide. Let the pres
ervation of that and the Union of the States be
our principle aim. Let it be our hope that the
Government may be perpetual, and that the
ciples of the Government, founded as they are on
right and justice,
may be handed down without
spot or blemish to our posterity. As I have be
fore remarked to you, I am gratified to see so
many of you, here to-day. It manifests a spirit
lam pleased to observe. I know it has lava
said of me that my asperities are ,sharp,-that I
had vindictive feelings to gratify; and that I
Could not fail to avail myself of the opportuni
ties that would present themselves to
despicable feelings. Gentlemen, if my acts will
not speak for me and for themselves, then any
professions I might now make would be equally
useless. But, gentlemen, if I know myself, as-I
think I do, I know that I am of the Southern peo
ple; and I love them and will do all in my power
to restore them to that state of happiness and
prosperity which they enjoyed.before the madness
of misguided men in whom they hild-reposed their
confidence led them astray to their own undoing.
Inhere is anything that can be done on my part,
on correct principles, on the principles of the Con.
stitution, to promote these ends, be assured it
shall be done.- Let me assure you, also, that there
is no disposition on the part of the Government
to deal harshly vviththe Southern people. There
may be speeches published from variouif quarters
that may breathe a different spirit. Do not let
them trouble or excite you, but believe that it is,
the great object of the Government to make the
Union of these United States more complete and
perfect tint.") ever, and to maintain it on constitu
tional prineiples, if possible, more firm than it
has ever before been. Then why cannot we all
come up to the work in a proper spirit 7 In oth
er words, let us look to the Constitution. The
issue has been made and decided; _then, as Wise
men—as men who see right and are determined
to followit as fatheti :and brothers, and as men who
love their country ih this hour of trial and suffering
—why cannot we come up and help to settle the
questions of the hour and adjust them according
to the principles of honor-and justice ? The in
stitution of slavery is gone. The former status
of the negro had tri be changed, and we, as wise
men, must recognize so patent a fact and adapt
ourselves to circumstances as they surround us.—
[Voices—We'are willing to so. Yes, sir we are
willing to do so.] I believe you are. I believe
when your faith is pledged, when your consent
has been given; as I have already said, I believe
it will be maintained in good faith, and every
pledge or promise fully carried out. [Cries—lt
All I ask or desire of the South or North,
the Last or the West, is to be sustained in car
rying out the principles of- the Constitution. 'lt
is not to be denied that we have been great suf
ferers on both sides. Good men have fallen on
both sides, and much misery is being endured as
the necessary result of so gigantic a contest.—
Why, then, cannot we come together, and around
the common altar of our country heal the wounds
that have been made 7 Peep wounds have been
inflicted. Our country has been scarred all over.
Then why cannot we approach each other upon
principles which are right in themselves and
which will be productive of good to all I The
day is not distant when we shall feel like a fami
ly that has had a deep and desperate feud, the
various members of which have come together
and compared thexvils and sufferings they had
inflicted upon each other. They had seen-the in
fluence of their error and its result, and, govern
ed by,a generous spirit of conciliating, they had
become ruutuallylforbearing and forgiving, and
returned to their old habits of fraternal kindness,
and become better friends than ever. Then let
us consider that the feud which alienated us has
been settled and adjusted to our mutual satisfac
tion, and that we core together to be bound by
firmer bonds of love, reStreet and confidence than
ever. The North cannot get along without the
South nor the South without the North, nor the
East without the West, nor the West without the
East ; and I say that it is our diry to do all that
lies in our poWer to perpetuate and make stronger
She bonds of our Union, seeing that it is for the
Common good of all that we should be united. I
feel that this Union, though but the creatien of a
century, is to be perpetuated for all time, and
that it cannot be destroyed except by the allwise
God who created it. Gentlemen ,J repeat, I sin
cerely thank'you for the respect. manifested on'
this occasion; and for the expressions of appro
bation add confidence, please accept my sincere

shadow of death.
But, perhaps. I may'not be assexiing too much when
saying, that the majority of those who participated in his

Dr. Culbertson was the son of Robert Culbertson, who

was quite young. he was left to the care of his widowed
mother, a very superior woman.
.•• • .
Dr. C. received his classical education at Jefferson Col
lege,Cannoasburg. Pa .where, I believe, bewasgraduated.
At that early day, means of conveyance to such a distant
western point were limited and difficult, anal have often
beard it said that he usually made his way to and from
college on foot. After quitting Cannonsburg, he began
the study of medicine, under Dr: Walmsley, who prac
tised at that time in Chanabershurg, bat who removed to
Hagerstown, his, student following hint. Dr. W. died
soon after, when young Culbertson finished his cour se of
study in the office of Dr. Young, of that place
Dr. Culbertson spent one winter in attending the in
structiobs of the University of Penna.. but was not gradu
ated The honorary degree bf Doctor of Mcvlicine was
conferred upon him in I; , :iff, by the Jefferson Medical Col
lege, in recognition of his eminence and usefulness in his
profession. He commenced the practice of medicine in
Chumbersburg, probably in Ifitb, and arena succeeded in
a large practice. and acquired great celebrity. In 1215.
he went to Philadelphia. and engaged in mercantile busi
ness with a Mr. Wilson ; but he was unsuccessful in his
new pursuit. and returning to Chambersburg, resumed
practice, in which he continued until 1831, when he final
ly relinquished it in favor of Drs. Lane and Bain. He
then entered upon the manufacturing of straw paper, in
conjunction with Messrs. Calhoun, Chambers. Washing
ton and Shryock. Subsequently he purchased the inter
ests of his partners, and conducted the business himself,
until a few years ago--when he resigned it to his sons
Edmund and, John.
, During the late war with England, Dr. Culbertson was
an ardent patriot and shared in the struggle. In 1812, he
formed a company in this place for the defence of the Nor.
thorn border. With his little kind of volunteers, he left
Cbambersburg, September 5, 1811, and marched to Burt
falo. where they lay mitil January, 1813, without other
winter quarters than their own rude Inds, He was ap

There the Ist Penn'a Rest. was formed, and he selected
as its Surgeon, in which capacity he served until the troops
were relieved. On the return of the regiment, he remom
menced his practice. But his quiet life was soon again
disturbed. In 1814 the country was alarmed with the in
telligence that the British threatened Baltimore, The
Doctor promptly called his neighbors to arms, raised a
-company rapidly, was chosen its Captain; and marched
with some. eighteen hi:inked men of Franklin county to
the endangered city. There he was once more appointed
Surgeon of his regiment. They remained about a mouth
near Baltimore,aind were then discharged.
lhave often listened with boyish enthusiasm to the de
scriptions given of the tumultuous night when the news
was brought here of the approach of the British upon Bal
timore; when Dr. Culbertson turned out at midnight, and
with drums beating, marched through the strettts of our
goodly old borough, summoning his townsmen to the res

the dusky forms of the aroused citizens were seen falling

C. in the vigor of Youth suffered no decay amid' the infir
mities of age. Whets the Rebellion massed its hosts for
the overthrow of the government, he gave no equivocal
support to the vigorous prbsecution of the War for our
nahonal existence ; but wis always earnest in his advoca
cy of prompt, decided. unintertnittent action.
As a business man, Dr. Culbertson is known to have
been sueemsful , but it was his professional career that
made him eminent. In surgery he was very expert and
daring, but it was said by one trim knew his practice well
that he excelled especially as an obstetrician. His
gal qualification which Most impressed one, was hi, won
derful readiness in discovering the seat of disease, its na

made litesel extremely valuable. If there appeared
new disease, (or perhaps I bad better say an unseal dis
ease, as a new disease is generally none but the new ap
pearance of a disease itself not new,) none was more apt to
aletect Its character and tendencies, and hence better qual
ilied .to suggest its treatment than Dr. Culbertson_
It has been my privilege to have witnessed the practice
ofvery many medical men. Some of them holding high
positions in professional regard but. I have never met any
who impressed rue more fa, (trebly us a practitioner. Al
though Dr. C. abandoned the practice, for which it is
known he had no liking, he was fund of the study of
'med,cine ; and, although he was unable to keep pace
with the rapid strides of the smences—todo which requires
the whole attention anal efforts of its disciple,—he kept his
knowledge fresh and added eenstaatly to its stares.
Alterte had retired from the practice, he was always
willing to consult with his medical brethren, and his opsa.

course with the members of his profession, he was ever
respectful and courteous, observing- it, ethics with strict
fidelity, mad deporting himself with a delicacy that be

character, no less than out of reg ard to his acknowledged
abilities, that the physicians of Franklin county. when

For many years he was a sufferer from bodily diseales;
being subject to frequent and -violent attacks of 'vertigo,

DR. JOHNSTON, Member of the Royal College

Colleges of the United States, and the greater part of
whose life has been spent in the hospitals of
Paris, Philadelphia and elsewhere, has effected some
the most astonishing cures that were ever lasarn. Many
troubled with ringing in.the head and ems when asleep,
ggrreeaat nervousness, being alarmed at sudden sounds, and
bashfulness, with frequent blushing, attended sometimes
with derangement of mind, were cured immediately.

recommend a safe and speedy cure to the unfortunate 'vic

an untimely grave, or make theresidue of life miserable.
