days have not been too hot and the nights are cool

we will try, and help it, even if we have to go

Pardon seekers! . Th e cry is still they come,
and the number of arrivals daily inereasing in a
sort of geometrical progression. We are literally
covered up with them, every boarding house and,
hotel being 611edrwith them from cellar to attic.
The crowdyesterday at the executive mansion
exceeded iu numberanything of the kind ever be.
fore collected there. They filled not only the east
room but all the adjoining rooms and passages,
and a large portion of the space in front of the
building. Among them was 'Extra Billy Smith
and Fayette lfeMullen of Virginia. Fitzhugh
Lee is looked for on Monday.
The Presidetit yesterday pardoned thelwife of
the rebel General Longstreet. This wan urged_
forward on the park of Longstr9sat's friends in or
der that fife immense property held in the name
of Mrs. Longstreet should escape confiscation.
The'pafdon has been granted and the property is
safe in the hands - of its rebel owners.

On in the office of the President's private Secre
tory, With which he signed the.first pardon under
the provisions of his• amnesty proclamation.—
What is the difference betwixt that pen and the
one he now uses we cannot see. One thing is
certain. should the pardon business continue. there
will be enough pens used to supply every library
and curiosity seeker in the country with one.
As an illustration of how deeply the Southern
brethren are in earnest in their feelings for the
union and for the Northern people, we have only
to look at, the action of the, annual council of the
Episcopal Church of Virginia, now in session at
Richmond. Yesterday-they declined to unite with
the. Episcopal Church North by adopting resolu
tions referring the subject to the next annual
council. Bishop johns took a noble stand in fa
vor of re-union, but his advice did not prevail over
the bigoted political prejudices of the majority of
the council. The hatred of the council aturtheir
sectional bias was shown by their electing dele
gates to the generaLcouncil of the church at Mo
bile next November.
The Werze trial was continned• through the
past week. bringing to light nothing but additional
details of the murders and sufferings of the pris
soners while in that prison pen of death. yester
day Lewis Dyer, who was employed about the
headquarters of Werze, testified that Werze said
he intended to starve all the prisoners to death,
or make them join the Southern army. The cloth
mg sent there for the use of the prisoners by the
United States Government was distribitted among
the• rebel soldiers. One day tha. witness saw 3000
letters come there for the prisoners. Captain
Werze took the letters out for Capt. Reed's wife
to read. ne took the money, pictures, &c.; out
of the letters and then ordered the witness to
burn the letters. Witness heard the Surgeons at
Doctor White's house say, "I have poisoned five
Yankees to-day;" another would say, "I poisoned
ten." They would all§tell of the number poisoned.
Heard Werze tell the Surgeons to "vaccinate all
the prisoners in the stockade heard the Doctors
say "they would vaccinate all the Yankees ice the
Stockade and kill them all or take their arms off."
Witness saw several hundred dollars taken from
the letters and no memorandum everiept of the
There are yet four or five witnesses to be ex
amined on the part of the government who were
nut present yesterday and Col. Chipman said "he
v.ould informally close the case on the part of tbe
prosecution—reserving the right to examine these
witnesses hereafter and also that certain dein
mentary eoidence would yet be offered connecting
the Richmond Government with the Andersoniille
prison." - . .To this Mr.llaker,Attorney tor Werze,
objected, as it might affect his client. Col. Chip:
man replied that the evidence referred to, Davis.
Lee and others connected mith the rebel Govern
ment, and the counsel had no right to object to ,
testimony which did notaffect tlieir client. They
appeared for Werze, and it was not their duty to
follow the Government in pursuit of these 'par
ties. They have only to explain the conduct of
Werze for the Past eighteen months. To'this
Mr. Baker agreed, and Col. Chipman stated,
that the testimony for the go l verntrient would be
here informally closed. In order to allow . the
defence time to prepare their Case the court Mi
journed until next Tuesday. .
The number of witnesses examined on the part
frf the Government, was one hundred and twelve
and the evidence cover's 3000 pages of legal cap
Ipaper. The defense has summoned over °hymn
dred witnesses; about thirty of whom are already
.here. The case has, occupied the attention of
the commission since the 22nd of August and
promises a continuance of at least a month more.
The prisoner looks very feeble, reclining all the
time on a sofa, while the court is in session. It
is very doubtful it he will live to. see the end of
it. „ 9. c.

E DEMOCRATS AN D THE PRESIDENT
Tlierti•is but one way to render a real,genuine,
unmistakable support to the administration of
Andrew Johnson, andlhat is by voting the Union
ticket at the ensuing election. To talk or write,
however zealous, in favor of President Johnson's
poliey, and then to vote the Democratic ticket, is
to aid a party not in anywise in sympathy with
the objects ut the Administration, and which has
proven, by four years of unmitigated hostility to
the dlntun cause, btntrjrllleh it is acting with the
rebels. President Johnson plainly told the South
Carolina delegation that their State must ratify
the constitutional amendment and alter their State
cons i ritution so as to abolish slavery; and in con
seipanice of his expressed wishes the States of
Alatiitina and Mississippi have atneneed their
State constitutions so as to abolish slavery. Yet
in the States of Kentucky and Delaware the
Democratic party unanimously refuse to do this,
and in New Jersey it refuses to ratify the consti
tutional ainenduieut. Under such circumstances
we leave our readers to decide with what amount
of sincerity the Democratic party can claim to
be heattily in accord with the President's policy.
It dues not admit of question that, if the party
had power, so fir from supporting that policy, it
would dispute the abolititin of slavery at every
'step, aud agree to nothing President Johnson
might propose, unless it might happen to favor
the schemes of the pro-slavery advocates. If the
smith does nut not deny the abolition of slavery,
why does the Democratic party struggle to save
the ins titu thou r If it is in favor of the President's
policy, why refuse to do in New' ersey, Dela
w.it e and Kentucky what the President requires
the. rebel States to du as a condition of resuwa
tion—ratity the constitutional amendment I The
truth w that the party is nut in 'accord with the
President at all, that it is in %tor of the uncon
ditional return of tbtr rebel States to Congress
VOL. .114101 . 0'N'Q.: 3,7-6.
• • r
and to full State powers, while the President in
sists on guarantee 'against future ttiouble. He
wants an entire free republic. Tlley want- to
rescue slavery. ,
If ttie DemoCials are riot in -favor Of reconsti
tuting slavery why do they call us aholitionists ?
The rebel States-areall'seriatim.beemning'aboli
tienized of necessity, and the President demands
abolition as a condition of restoration ; while this
DemoCratic party -continues to denounce us as
abolitionists and to refuse to aid the moveinebt,
and . yet pretends to inipport the President's poll
cy and to aid the work of reconstruction, Now,.
there dodging this issue. The President is
either for abolition or heist against it: If the ab
olition which has been adopted in Alabama and
Mississippi is not his' work, we should like to
know whm.eit is; and if he Aid Oct indorse the
emancipation policy of the Union party in Ken
tricky we have been most stningely Mistaken.—
The fact is it was so well known that, the eman
cipation party in Kentucky was indorsed and sup
ported by the Administration* to cause the most
furious denunciations of alleged military interfe
rencelhere to defeat the Democratio - candMates.
The President being, therefore, earnestly for the
- extirpation of slavery, how Can the Democratic
party pretend to support his policy,- while doing
all in its power to obstruct the achievement of
that result? - The two positions are as distinct
as possible and- clearly hostile. The President
insists upon the irrevocable extirpatiob of slavery
as 'a 'condition of - the restoration of the _rebel
States. The. Democratic party demands their
restoration without any conditions, and with all
their slave codes in full force. The President's
policy is candid, manly and statesmanlike. It is
that of the great Union party without division or
distinction. The Democratic policy is danger
ous to the peace of the republic, and-entirely in
consistent with that of the President, so that those
who, at the ensuing election, vote the Democrat
ic ticket vote against the Piesident'spollcy.
HOW THEY LOON ATTr.
We have abundant information as to what the
President, and Mr. Stevens and Mr. Sumner, and
various other public men think of reconstruction;
but we have heard but little as to the views of
the Southern people themselves. Are they in
favor of " restoration?" and if so, why ? What
do they expect to gain or lose by it? '
'Fortunately, we have the answer at hand. Some
of the " restorationids" at the South have the
grace of being plain spoken, and among these is a
correspondent of the Mobile Tribune, who thinks
that if the State Bights party in the South plays
its cards properly, they will get pay for all their
slaves and all the property which :Gene. Sherman,
Grant and others destroyed. Moreover, he says
that "if we don't have whom we choose for the
next President, it will be our own folly." Hear
There 4gems to be much error in regard to
claims against the government. All claims,
which are not founded upon express contracts
orith the Government, or upon vouchers furnished
by, quartermasters and commissaries, have no
present hope or-possibility - of payment. All such
demands must, •by law, be adjudicated by the
' Court of Claim.' in Washington City. But the
doors of that court are now closed by a peremp
tory statute, against all persons, (lo} al or disloy
al) residing in the Confederate States, on ac
count of claims for property taken or damage
done during the war. Such is the present state
of the case, but I feel confident that the neat
Congress will repeal...this statute, and open the
court to all claimants. I have charge of large
claims of the character, but it is useless to urge
them now. ' Haste is not always speed.' When
the Government shall return to its ancient prin.
elple.s and precedents I believe it will pay for
touch of the property taken and destroyed during
the war. It is constitutionally bound to pay the
owners of slaves fur abolition of that institution,
and I do not despair of the fulfilment of that ob
ligation. It is, also, according to the general
principles of law, bound to pay the damages oc
casioned by their recent gee.powder explosion in

The so-called Democratic party are exceeding
ly loud now in their praises of the returned sol
diers, and are even forcing themselves to put in
practice what they reluctantly preach, by putting
them on their ticket to make their ticket stronger.
We are sure they pursue such a course more
from pulley than choice. The following remarks
by Major Gen. Collis at a Union meeting in-Phil
adelphia, will reveal the the true p(vition of the
opposition party :, '
" He made an appeal to the soldiers to enroll
their names once more in the great cause of the
country, and be mustered into service to fight
sympathizers with treason, as faithfully with their
ballots - as they fought traitors - with their muskets.
It seemed strange to him that it should be neces
may to say anything to soldiers on the issues of
the day, but he was compelled to caution them.
"You must not be deceived by the head and
front of the so called Democratic tickebeing
dressed in the national uniforms; you—must not
be deceived by the -enemy's column of candidates
headed by a: couple of 'your comrades. Didn't

and then strip you of even thing worth carrying,

who on the 10th 'of next month will approach
you carrying the Shire and Stripes, and led by a
couple of blue coats. When the bead of their,
column appears, I want you to look well down
its ranks, and I think you will find following in
the rear as sorry, and seedy, and hungry a set of
grey backs lis you ever - set eyes upon between Pe

you do not hurl them back upon their reerves in
