HON. UIESTER CLYMEIl,
OP BERKS COUNTF.
The Proclamation of Peace.
ltie President's proclamation published
cn onr first page ia this issue, is fit, well
timed, and will go far toward restoring
tranquility and order to the Republic. It
bas long been known by everybody, and
acknowledged by all, except a few tyrants,
fanatics and demagogues, whose will in law,
and whose purpose is anarchy, that the
' Southern insurrection was at an end, but
the official recognition of that fact by Ex
ecutive authority will leave the Revolution
ists no pretext for their, treasonable action,
and violation of the plainest provisions ol
the Constitution. The National Congress
can no longer, without outraging decency
and justice beyond endurance, ignore a po
litical condition that is palpable, self-evident,
perceptible to the most limited com
prehension cf the multitude, and officially
announced by the C&ief Magistrate ol the
land. There is co longer an excuse for
wiihholding the people of .the South from
Congressional representation, and those
who do, do it in defiance of an established
troth upon record and under the seal of the
United States. .The President, in his proc
lamation proves by the resolutions of both
Senate and House at the commencement of
botiiiiiei, that we have attained the ob
ject then aimed at, and now that the war i
over let that intention be carried out. There
is at this lime no obstacle in the way of
reunion tot the Northern Radicals. The
Southern people have yielded the point for
which they contended. They fought for it
openly and bravely arid were lefeatd ;
they now acquiesce in the result of the
appeal to arms. Tfcey have, according to
the advice cf the President of the United
State,passed laws annulling the ordinances
of secessioa, ratified t'ie amendments cf
the Constitution of the United States abol
ishing klavery, repudiated the rebel debts,
and-recognized the debts of the United
States, and confess an entire willingness to
abide ty all constitutional qualifications cf
the United States in resuming their former
relations with the Central Government. We
bave every reason to believe that they are
sincere andzeatonii theireflotts of reunion.
But the Radicals have taken up the disun
ion cause where the Sontbern peopta re
linquished it. They are the disunionists
nd traitor to-day. They are leagoed to
overthrow the foundations of ou r political
, sjstera. They are the conspirators against
the principles of our form of government,
the .enemies of onion, the anarchists and
revolutionists, and as such they should be
treated. The country will welcome the
official announcement ol peace. Every
lover ol his country will rejoice thai the
day of "military necessities," of the mon
strous" war power," and of those tribunal
termed in mockery "courts of military jus
tice," is at an end, and . that the reign ol
liberty, regulated and protected by law is
restored. This is the the effect of the proc
lamation just issned by President Johnson.
The election in Connecticut on the 2d
ins:., was very close, the majority for Gov
ernor being- but 99 on a ro e of S5.C00
The campaign wan one cf the most spirit
ed ever known in the State. Last year the
Republicans carried the Stale by 11,500
majority. The loss of almost 11,000 by
the Radicals in one year is h terrible blow
to the hopes of that party in the totnre,bo.h
in the State of Connecticut, and every where
eUe. If they can hardly maintain them
selves in a New England. State like Con
necicut, it ia eay to be seen that they will
fre beaten by' lens of thousands, in the
great Central Middle and Western S a'es.
' Had the Radicals, shown their hands tairly
they would have met with a moat crushing
They merely saved themselves fcy openly
jrof'.aing frienship for the- policy of the
National Administration, while tbey were
really utterly opposed to it. As it is, it cab
be claimed at a Democratic triumph,
and its effect will te'.I cpon the elections to
take place this Fall.
The victory is as complete as if English
lad been elected. All bail! Connecticut !

that the House will pas it with a like ma.

the President wilfr enforce a law, the uncon

Hon. Gcorgc Landos, Senator from Brad
ford county, presented petitions to tUe Sen
ate from citizens of this county, praying
for the passage of an act changing the
mode of selecting and drawing Jurors in
Colombia' county. The petition, we are
informed, does not contain the name of one
single Democrat, but all. Republicans. Tbi
ha been the work of the fugleman of the
Republican party of this county, but be will
not succeed. There eiists no cause
for a change in the selection and drawing
of Jurors in this county; and so long as
there are no aggrievaoces which demand
redressing, the present mode will not be al
tered. Mr. Jacob?, in the House, bas kept
a watchful eye upon such legislation; and
we truit while he remains In the Legisla
ture, the people of this count will have no
lawsorcjti upon them that they do not d
aire. The bill Introduced in the legislature
o change the manner of selecting and
drawing Jurors in certain Democratic coun
ties of this Commonwealth provides for
the election of July Commissioners,, one
of each party, with equal privilege in
making selections for the Jury-wheel. This!
imposes an ennecesaary expense upon
those counties. These Commissioners are
allowed two dollars per day for every day
engaged in selecting and drawing Jurymen.
Under the present mode of drawing Jurors
these officers are not needed and the ex
Truth will out.
Believing it will be interesting to onr
readers many of whom, are making some
inquiry about the cour.-e to be permed rr

he Prefers Ihe lltv. Jobc Chanters, (Ceci
ccrat.) His Excellency, PresiJent Johnson, ac
companind by the Hons. Wm. H. Seward
and Edgar Cowan, unexpectedly arrived in
Priladelphia on Saturday evening last. The
dt:irignihnd party were driven to the Gi
rard Houe, where rooms had been engag
ed for them. On their arrival becoming
known it created quite an excitement among
the sojourners nf the Girard.
The disiingoished party attended divine
service Sunday afternoon at the First Inde
pendent Church, Broad and Samsom ts.,
of which the Rev. John Chambers is pas.
Of the two evils, we endorse his action
in choosing the leat. But we take excep
tions to his assertion, that he is following in
the foot-steps, and pursuing ihe course of
Mr Lincoln, and the less be boasts of car
rying oat . Lincoln's programme the more
be will be respected by both paries
We ucdintacd that there are still some
old enemies of the Democratic party, in
this county, harping on the old theme of
'no party" party. The Democrats h'ave
heard enough of this kind of twaddle.
They will stand by the Constitution they
will stick to tbe old Democratic Associa
tion they are not to be deluded and hum
bugged from the path of patriotism. Such
schemes will not take at this time.' The
cloven foot is visible, and the editor of the
Republican laments, foams, and becomes
(savigerous" because he has been educat
ing a set of men in treachery and rascality,
whom be cannot now control. - Wonder if
there ia any honor among thieves 1

The above parazraph is a a compound nf
wickedness, malice, deceit and aL-efnod,
prepared by Dr. P. John, '-Middle States

than a dose of bis catnip lea, and no more

even the shadow of fact for its foundation.
The new paper, about which so much bas
! been said; i?, as every tody knows, a
purely Republican concern, owned by
them, will be conducted by them, and will
advocate their views and policy. The

The pretence of adftUios in the" Radical
party we have shown recently to be with
out foundation In fact. As in the popular
elections of last Spring, at in the votes ol
the bouses of Congress for the last four
months, so also in the contest just closed in
Connecticut,, the Black Republicans con
stito'e a solid mass. From the crown of
its bead to tbe sole of its fool, that party
contains not a member that is not radical.
Mr. .Thaddeus Stevens and Mr. Charles
Sumner are its true eipone's, and speak
the language of its heart whet, ibey sneer
at all pretences of its moderation as mere
twaddle. Knemies.cf the Government,
every one, as ihe compact ranks that follow
at the heels of thoe gentlemen are now
seen to be beyond all cavil. We trot that
the country has heard tbe last of the mis
erable paltering which, exposed to univer
sal contempt ,by tbe polling in Connecticut,
all who prate of any divibiun of those
ranks as "conservative."
It is evident to the eye of the most un.
observing, that the ''conservatives' sanc
tion the unconstitutional test oath, that they
furnish a conservative platform fur such
men as Geary, of Pennsylvania, and Haw
lay, of Connecticut, who was supported
not only by the Radicals, but by the Con
servative Republicans, and that his election
elicits as loud shouts of joy from the New
York Times, which is the exponent of the
conservatism of Seward. Tnurlo Weed s
and Raymond, as from the Tubunt, that
speak. for Greeley nd Stevens and Sum
ner. The conservative Republicans intend
to catch the disaffected of both parties and
when the time shall arrive, throw them
back into the cess-pool of Abolitionism.
Lei the earnest Iriends of Democracy look
beyond the s'roggle which is taiv almost
won let them frown down the intermediate
and treacherous "conservative" party, and
ird themselves up lor carrying forward
their onslaught unhid pause, until ibey
shall have borne down the real barrier in
in the path of reunion.
The Democratic party cannot be taunted
wiih a bigoted adherence to its organiza
tion for refusing to coalesce with te so
calied ,Cotie.ra'ive." Even thoogfi such
a wing ol Black KepuMiratiaism bate any
actual existence, een though it conMin.te
a real power in Congre or at the p.rU,
the Democrat conid accompli-h rottiing
by corisentina to il -appear under i; shadow,
so Ions as it stands pledged to that intal ob
struciioii to reunion the tei oa'h. Patri
otism and pwriy are consii.'eraiirm- iha-, in
the present jnccturn ol politic! ailiWf, trie
Detiiociacy hold more than ever, in int.
ma e alliance. The res'ortinn of the Un
ion, pore ami imp!e, while granting their
country repose, grants their party breadth.
That purpose must therelore be held a sub
ject f the most earnest wishes of the De
mocracy ; and though t,he only one for
whose accomplishment (bey could be asked,
without absurdity, to coalesce wi;h any
party, it ceitainly does not prccen: itselt so
Ijo" as (he Biairk Republicans ;and srrayed
in so'id front, in support of the unconsti
tutional ar.d ani-rssMra'.ioa of the lest oath.
. Mr. Raj mond was said la be the leader
cf the Republican Conservatives ! His
vote in support of the Civil Kitits Bill
bas, we hope, set that pretence at ret. As
editor of the Times he crumples cp his al
Ie2ed "conservatism" u:h the coolnes
of a man who appears to have been una
ware that it had ever any real existence.
He moves overif, indeed, in doing so, he
had aay dhlonce to tfjvel in Monday's
issue of the limes, to the column headed
by Messrs. Steven and Sumi er. He doe
so in a manner which has leJ men who
I were weak as to believe in Ra heal mod
eration to t-uppoe that ie merely contera
p!a es trading r fT his :conerva!ism" in
favor of the compromise which he pro
poses wi:hhe President. Be his bargain
ing for compromise wor:h what it may,
Mr. Raymond has, virtually, surrendered
jn Monday's Time fcli further pretense of
division in the ranks of the JVpublican ;
and, while taking his place with becoming
humility in the train of Mr. Stevens, merely
ventures to whimper out a few wor.l ol
petitioti that his leaders deat tenderiy wi.h
tte Executive !
The country has gained by Ihe termina
tion ot the pretense of Black Republican
"conservatism. " The issue between par
res has bcome by tha' means, all tha
more clearly defined. Conres, with it-da-igeroas
designs upon ihe msiitctior.s ot
the country, wtti its hostility to the resto
ration of tbe Union, with its devotion to
the cause ol enforcing negro sufTraie ou
ihe Sou h, stands championed betore all
comers by (he solid ma. of the B'ak Re
publican part) ! Tbe President, wi'h his
anxiety to restore the I'ninri, with hi ad
vocacy of conciliation, with his deyoiion to
Democratic government, is hencetnr.h rep
resented in ihe contest with revolution, by
that only embodiment ot ronervatt-m. the
Cu'isti'uiional Democracy ! Ttie lacl thus
established broadly, will soon find its way
to ihe heart of Ihe people; and, our life
lor it, will, belore very I ng, asseri itself in
the popular verdict thai the Democratic
parly is the only T-pr?nt2ttve ol Ameri

theives of ancient and modern times. There
are a few honorable exceptions, but alas !

of their former selves, honet officers who
never tole from a defenceless foe, nor for
