The Republican party chested themselves
tremendously when they elected to effice

By their own Republican votes they placed
item in high' positions of power and au-thr-ri'y.

that their princip'es were in entire barmo

and sincere in their intentions to maintain
the Constitution and labor faj, the gcod of
whole country ; that :hey were a 4r.o par

very, Negro Suffrage, Equality of the races,
amalgamation, centralization or anything of
the kind were thj pledges, they gave the
people, and the very ones too ty which
they placed their candidates in power. Our

TOtir Position. y
Many persona have imbibed the idea that j
the Democratic partyxiaim Andy Johnson.
Spjch is oft the case. Yfe sirrply endorse
trim in his-constitutional effort? to restore
the Union of our fathers, and lo bring
I peace and order oul of confusion. So long
as Abraham Lincoln adopted wise and constitutional-measures
the Democratic party
aided him in the field and at home. Their
support to his successor is ' the more out
spoken, because the Radicals of his own
party bare denounced him and if we failed
to cast our strength for him in Congress,
every one knows bis pplicy could not pre
vail nor would his vetoes prove effective.
Moreover, our support is disinterested.
That is, we neither claim nor ask . from bim
any reward in the shape of offices. We
wish to prove that our party js one of prin
cip!end needs not the cohesive power of
blonder to keep it together, nor can i:s sup
port be pun'msed. But we: do insist thai
Andy Johnson thall Gil ttie offices ; within
his gift by bis friends, and: not by avowed
enemies... And we insist that they who en
dorse the Radicals in Concress are bis en
emies, because they encourage them in
their opposition to bis policy. Tt.e Presi
dent has taken an appeal from Congress to
to the people, and it i utterly impossible,
crpecuiVy for an rjji:e holder, to endorse both.
He who is not for him is against him, and
where the lines are so clearly drawn, ihere
is no middla course. . :
A Word to Our Subscribers.
Having combined the two 'Democratic
papers of this place, we feel entirely safe
in saying, that the Dmocrit and Sak bas
to-day a larger circulation than any other
county paper in Northern Pennsylvania ;
and with the steady increase ii circulation
which it now enjoys, and with a little' more
energy on the pan of our many friends
these nemteri will soon te increased to
two thousand fiva hundred. Nothing less
than this should satisfy the Democratic
party. Enterprise, industry and money,
will te liberally expanded to make the
Democrat A5D Star in every respect a fir$t
Our mechanical imjrove merits, however,
cannot be made, and should not be expected,
until after the first of April next, when we
will remote our combined material and
force, to a better business location. Pro

in our power for the edification, prosperity
and happiness of the people, we kfndly ask

The President said that he was much
obliged io them lor iheir visit, and thanked
them tor tfce compliment ol calling upon
turn. He svm p ilhized to the mmost exten
in what they desired 10 perform in reference
to increasing the happiness and promo ina
the interests cf the Torkina classes. His
whole life had been devoted to the work of
elevating the condition of the working class
es. Kvery action of his life had been in
con-onance with that principle. 'Whether,
in the means he had adopted, he had been
right, tim would decide. He would say to
them that whiie they were here engaged in
their object, he b-ped there wa another
otjeel 111 which ihey were equally interest

spoke of the state of the currency, and the
different views entertained of contraction
and expansion, and said i When we look
at these things the .Erst object is the resto
ration of the Government. He spoke of
the internal revenue, and said That a resto
ration ol the Government in' all its branches
would have the effect to remove all the bur
densome internal tax of the country. Any
thing he cdold do to promote all the inter-
ests of ihe country, he assured them be
would do. -
Mr. Ward then said : The great danger to
the country are ihe vast importations (rom
Europe, which cannot be checked except
by the imposition of huh duties. .
The President replied : By creatine a
greater demand for the currency in extend
ing the 'area of its circulation, thereby ob
viating the necessity of diminishing it, all
danger would be averted. The paramount
object, however, i to let us have a restored
Government a uni ed Union.
Mr. Ward here said : We are under the
impression we have a government.
The President replied: Let us have a
whole Government a restored Union, a
thoroughly reconciled and united couniry.
The members of the Committee were
then severally introduced io the President,
and the delegation withdrew.
Tbe above Extracts show the nerve
and courage of the President and his
honest and determined intent on restor
ing our distracted Republic to its normal
unity and prosperity.
