Why we Support the President.
We are frequently asked why we support
President Johnson. We support the Pres
ident because he has placed himself in an
attitude, which we believe to be in alliance
with Democratic principles, which must pre
vail, if the Union, under the Constitution,
is to be restored to its former happiness and
prosperity. The Democratic party have
never withheld their endorseme.it from any
i.an, when advocating Democratic princi
ples. And only so far as President Johnson
follows Democratic principles will the De
mocracy endorse him. We support Presi
dent Johnson only in his patriotism and fidel
ity to the people, and in his labors to effect
what we believe to be die best interests of
the country. But while endorsing President
Johnson in many things, we hold fast to
every principle of Democracy with renewed
vigor. We do not cease to be Democrats;
we do not cease to cherish the doctrines of
Jefferson ; we do not loose our grasp on the
Democratic doctrines of yore as the true
sources of prosperity to a Union.
We trust that it is well understood that
we support him as Democrats, and because
he urges Democratic measures, and that it
is only in these that he receives the support
of the Democratic party. And we are glad
that President Johnson, as well as hundreds
of others, realize theact that the best in
terests of the country demand that the Dem
ocratic doctrines be faithfully carried out
We rejoice that so many who have hereto
fore been affiliated with the Dis-union party
bow see that they must throw themselves
"into the arms of the Democracy if they would
save the Union from utter destruction, and
themselves from the "earthquakes" which
are surrounding them. We are pleased to
know that so many see that the white men
of this country cannot'be longer deluded into
the support of sectional measures.
County Poor House,
The editor of the Berwick Gazette is will
ing to come down a little, and confine his
remarks, in opposition to the Columbia
County Poor House, to the Borough of
Berwick; a nice way of acknowledging that
he publishes a paper for the guidance and
edification of the citizens of that place alone.
But, in his first article one would not sup
pose this the case, as his strictures upon the
Poor House question were too general, and
not made applicable alone to any Borough
or township in the county. We do not feel
disposed, if we had the power, to force any
district into this measure, but desire each
and every ne to think and act in the matter
for themselves ; and if that is the position
of the Gazette, we shall better understand
it in the future. And so far a3 calling upon
the Borough to pay taxes to keep any poor
of "other townships," we can say that, from
what information we have in the matter,
these County Poor Houses are self-sustain
ing institutions. At least this is the case in
the counties of Chester, Lehigh, Berks,
Bucks, Schuylkill, Montour, Clarion and
others, that we might mention. In several
of these counties' the Poor House farm cre
ates, instead of a burden upon the tax-payers,
quite a revenue to the county, and we
fail to see why the same thing can't be done
in Columbia county. It must be a poor
farm, indeed, if properly managed, that
would not produce sufficient to maintain the
paupers of this county, without taxing the
people, when a large amount of the labor
can be done by the paupers themselves.
In conversation with a gentleman from
Schuylkill county, not long since, we were in
formed, that for twelve years while he lived
his property. At present he could not state
whether or not the people of that county
were subjected to any poor taxes, but rather
thought they were, on account of there
being so many children made orphans and
mothers made widows during the late war ;
beside5!, the population of that county is
made up' of a different class of people from
those of our county. If Schuylkill can
maintain her poor twelve years without
levying and coUectingtaxes for that purpose,
"why ehould not Columbia be able, with her
rich and well-producing farm land, to main
tain her poor without burdening the people
by taxation? She can do it, is our honest
conviction. " . .
The experience hza been in 3Iontur
county, that those townships not in the Poor
House have had heavier taxes to pay in sup
port of the Poor, than they had before the
erection of the County Poor House, while
the other townships had very light if any
taxes to pay. Those not accepting have
since seen their mistake, and the result has
been, the townships remaining out petitioned
to the Legislature last winter and procured
aa act foe the erection of another Poor
House in that county. They have been con
vinced that it is cheaper and better to keep
their paupers in a County Poor House than
tare them promiscuously all over the coun
ty in filth and idleness. The30 are facts
and can't bo disputed.' The people of this
coiiriy should cortidder the matter well in
Hj its particulars and act in the premises in
h a manner 23 not to bo regretted in the
The "Republican" Editor Visits
E3u The editor has been absent the past
few days beini? called away to Boston, Mass. ,
on business. He will probably return this
evening. Col. Co. Republican.-
A very important mission, indeed I Of
course the editor of the Republican had to
go to Massachusetts to get an insight of the
true line of policy to be pursued by the Dis
unionists, and to obtain his proportionate
share of the plunder secured by the Massa
chusetts officer's during the late war. No
doubt he went there by a special call, and as
the special guest, of blundering BeastButler,
or some other celebrated thief of modern
times. Not a shadow of a doubt but that
the editor of the Republican was to Massa
chusetts ; because he is a fit subject to be
found in the very lap and birth-place of
treason. He is eminently fitted to associate
with the military satraps who forsook the
faith of their fathers for gain or insignia of
office fitted entirely, is he, to be the com
panion of the thieving minions who deserted
their cause as Union officers, and engaged
in wholesale robbery from a conquered foe,
from banks, stores, street corners, private
dwellings, from orphans, widows defence
less women and children.
Wonder how the Republican editor felt
with a "loyal thief leading him through
gilded halls, ornamented and furnished with
the fruits of pillage? How did those mir
rors and centre tables, belonging to Southern
citizens, look in a Massachusetts parlor?
How did the notes of those pianos sound in
your ears f How did the Massachusetts
ladies look, dressed in stolen calicoes and
silks? How did the plundered cotton seem
to work in those eastern Manufactories?
How did those spoons, and other articles of
silver-ware, look on a Massachusetts table,
with the original and rightful Southern
owner's names inscribed upon them? How
does stolen Southern books and station
ery sell in Massachusetts stores? And could
you not get a supply of them in order that
you might be able to sell at reduced prices?
How did the gingling of the balance of that
pilfered specie in Old Ben's pockets vibrate
upon your earsr How did you feel, and
where did you put your watch and "pocket
book" when you retired at night, and did
you find them next morning all right? Do
the New England people generally appear to
appreciate the luxuries, goods and effects,
lately stolen from the citizens of the South,
of which they are now in possession ? But
one more question, although we do not de
sire to weary your patience, did you bluh
with shame when you looked in those costly
and splendid mirrors which were stolen from
the South ?
We think such a trip would furnish an
editor with a theme for a lengthy and inter
esting editorial, and inasmuch as you have
given notice of your momentous journey "to
Boston, Massachtfeetts," we shall expect in
your next issue to see you dilating upon it
For a number of years previous to the se
cession of the Southern States the Aboli
tionists of the North advocated the dissolu
tion of the Union. From the rostrum they
spoke for it, from the school houses and
lecture rooms they advocated it, from the
pulpit they preached and prayed for it, from
their seats in the Legislatures, both State
and National, they plead for it, from the
people to Congress they petitioned for it,
and declared that the Northern people could
in no way induce, drive, or kick the South
out of the Union. Thu3 stigmatizing, abus
ing and threatening the people of the South
ern States, until in 1861, when they took up
the gauntlet of secession, which the Aboli
tionists of the North had hurled at them with
defiance; the Disunionists of theNorth.then,
Lwith wild and wide-spreading enthusiasm,
declared irom every nook and corner of the
North, that secession should be prevented,
that it was unauthorized by the Constitution,
and ruinous to our system of Government.
To the latter all parties in the North agreed
and united in the overthrow of secession and
rebellion. But no sooner had the rebellion
been put down, and the idea of secession
abandoned by the South, than the same old
Disunion party of the North declared that
the Southern States were out of the Union,
and ought to be kept out And to this end
the Disunion-Abolition party of the North
are laboring at the present time. Their po
sition needs no further comment at our
hands. Just think of their course then

The President has approved the bill to au
thorize coinage of five-cent pieces, compos
ed of nickel and copper. The coin is to be
a legal tender in any payment to the amount
of$l. There are to be no more issues of
fractional notes of a less denominationation
than ten cents.
The President has also approved the bill
providing that on and after the 16th inst
there shall be levied, collected and paid on
all horses, mules, cattle, sheep hogs, and
other live animals imported from foreign,
countries a duty of 20 per cent ad valorem;
provided that any such an-mals now bona
fide owned by resident citizens of the United
States and now in the provinces of British
America may be imported into the United
States free of duty until the 27th of May.
The President has also approved the bill
to allow the Vice Admiral a Secretary,
with the rank, sea pay and allowances of a
lieutenant in the navy.
The President has approved the joint res
olution sending greeting to the Emperor of
Russia, congratulating him on his escape
from the hands of an assassin.
The Notes op State Banks. After the
1st of June, the Notes of all State Banks
will not be received in payment of debts at
the counters of the National Banks, or on
deposit, except at such a discount as will pay
the expense of returning these notes to the
Banks that issued them; and exchanging
them for National Currency. This is done
on account of jjie high tax imposed by the
Federal Government on the circulation of
all State Banks that is out after the date
named. The effect of this will be to give us
a uniform paper currency. '
' Horace Armstrong, of Orange town-t"-?.
e:ectocl Ccxxaty Superintendent of
Our TO hereabouts. f
xn an article written by us, (the sen
ior) some time in February last, respecting
the starting of a new paper in this place, we
stated that it would be conducted by one
Captain Moore, late of the Chronicle office,
Washington, D. C. This announcement was
made upon what we deemed good authority.
But in the first issue of the new paper we
were corrected in words as follows : "Captain
Moore is not late of the Washington Chron
icle office, never haviag had any connection
whatever with that establishment" Not
having " enlightened" his readers of his
"whereabouts" previous to his coming to
this county, we, in noticing the new pa
per on its first appearance, spoke of the
editor as of "some other place besides this."
This was the best we could do. But since, in
his last, he states ths.t, "at the out-break of
the war we were editing a paper in New
York, but abandoned that occupation, and
enlisted as a private in the Thirty-Sixth Reg
iment of New York Volunteers, in the month
of April, 1861." Ha served his full term of
enlistment in said Regiment, during which
time, he says, he received promotions.
As he would like to know of his contem
poraries' "whereabouts" during that time,
for one we will state that, at the breaking
out of the war we were engaged publishing
the "Star of the North," in Bloomsburg,
Pa., and continued in that business until we
enlisted in the Thirteenth Regiment, P. V.,
for the purpose of repelling the invasion
made into our State by the rebel army, and
a few weeks after our return home we were
conscripted and served out our time in the
One Hundred and Seventy-Eighth, P. M.
We simply make mention of these facts to
show that Captain Moore is not the only ed
itor in this place that soldiered in the late
war; and in doing this, we don't wish to be
understood as claiming any credit to ourself
or attempting to establish our loyalty, as we
hold it is to no persons' credit who took any
part in the late war. For ourself, we would
have none of it Give it all to such men as
Butler and Banks ; privates desire none,
since the war has been prostituted to the
purposes of disunion and abolitionism. .
As to our partner, he remained at home
like all good citizens, pursuing a legitimate
business, doing more for the good of the
country than many who claimed and seemed
to be intensely loyal and desirous of mobbing
all democrats who did not think, believe
and act with them.
Not exactly Mr. Hill. The Columbian
neither claims to be a Republican paper nor
is it on the "true Democratic track." It
does not support Clymeil Hence it is not
Democratic. Geary's name is not at its
mast-head, consequently there is nothing
left for any one to conclude but that it is a
bastard institution and not on any "track."
Democrat and Star.
We would inform the Democrat and
Star that we take the Columbian at its
word. It says "it will support all principles
and measures of policy which look to the
consolidation of the Union,- the object
announced by General Washington as the
principal one had in view in forming the
Constitution of the United States, and that
on the other hand, public men who oppose
the unity and harmony of the country, and
who would keep alive sectional partisan hate
to the injury' and detriment of the United
States, are to be denounced and oppo.sed."
As we understand it this is the Democratic
ground, and we still insist the Columlnan,
so long us it pursues this course, is on the
true Democratic track. If we are in error,
we hope the Democrat and Star will
show us howand where. Scranton Register.
The editor of the Scranton Register "still
insists" that the Columbian is on the "true
Democratic track." The mere assertion of
the editor of the Register, backed by the
quotation from the ' Columbian, does not
make it so by any means. You have only to
examine their paper closely, each week, and
personally know th-3 factious clique, to be
convinced that the paper is not on the "true
Democratic track." It is true the Demo
cratic party "support all principles and meas
ures looking towards the consolidation of
this Union," and the Columbian avowing
this one plank, does that alone place them
on the "true Democratic track?" We hold
that it must still profess and do more before
the Democracy can acknowledge them in
any such position. We might quote a line
or two from its last issue to show that our
position is right, where it says: "By some
the Columbian is pronounced a Republican,
and by others a Democratic paper. Let us
assure them again, that it is neither ; it is
not a political, but is, and will continue to
be, an independent Journal." Here we
have it declaring that it is not a political
3 ournal. This being the case, how is it to
be considered on any political "track" Dem
ocratic or otherwise? In the same issue it
alleges, "we shall stand by him (Johnson)
and his friends." We would ask in all can
dor, does it do this? Does it support Cly
mer ? No. Is he not one of the Presi
dent's supporters ? Does he not support all
principles and measures looking towards the
restoration of the Union? Certainly he
does. Then why does it not support all
who stand by tlie President and his friends
and get clearly on the "true Democratic

Counting the Cost.
Our excellent contemporary, the Detroit
Free Press thinks it highly proper to begin
counting the cost of the Abolition party to
the country. It remarks that in times past
when he Government was administered by
Presidents Adams, Jackson, Van Buren,
Harrison, Polk, Taylor, Pierce and Buchan
an the expenses of the nation were canvass
ed with great care and deliberation, and
limited to thesmallest sum possible. But
it is a remarkable fact that since the advent
to power of the Republican party the word
ftjonomy has become obsolete. We never
hear from the Republicans the objection
which Clay and Webster, and their coin
peers, used to urge with such eloquence that
this or that bill should not be passed because
it unncccessarily increased the expenses of
the Government and the burthens of taxa
tion on the people. In those days public
men often counted the cost to the people of
the measures they proposed, and more than
one man was shipwrecked because he was
reckless and extravagant with the public
money. But the times have sadly changed.
We never hear the question of how much it
will cost started by any one belonging to the
dominant party. The thousand and one
schemes against the Treasury are received
with favor, and millions upon millions are
appropriated without a single thought of
how the money is to be raised, or how many
must suffer for the actual ncccessaries of
life, because the Treasury of the United
States must be filled to meet the expenses of
government. Pittsburg Post.
The Civil Rights Bf II .
The Washington Constitution says :
"Equal Rights. About noon yesterday
two fat, greasy-looking, two-hundred-pound
'colored ladies,' evidently cooks for some
cheap restaurant, got into one of the street
cars at the Capitol, and the seats all being
occupied by ladies and gentlemen they, the
darkey women, began to turn up their noses
and tlirow out slurs about 'white trash,' and
finally one of them called : 'Cornductor, I
want you to get 113 seats, de same as de oder
passengers we're peoples,.we ain't does.'
The conductor politely informed them that
by the time the car got to Four-and-a-half
street there would be seats, as most of the
passengers were bound to Doctor Sunder
land's Church ; but for the present there
was no room. The largest negress then
shouted, in her warmest strain, with anger
depicted in every lineament of her counte
nance : 'We am jist as good as any ob de
white trash riding in dis yer kcare we ain't
dops, and we want seats "jist de same as de
white women and if de white trash was
gsmmcn dey would git up and give a lady
a seat, and if I can't git a seat 1'se gwang
to git out Mr. Cornductor, stop de keare,
stop de keare- we'se not gwang to ride wid
sich trash.' The wenches bustled their
sweaty and aromatic persons out of the
car, much to the gratification of the passen
pers lound to Doctor Sunderland's Church.
The last seen of the two wenches they were
peering down toward the Capitol, for anoth
er car. Moral The equalization of color is
no more relished by the Abolitionists of
Doctor Sunderland's Church than the most
radical anti-negro worshippers in our land.
The negroes will soon learn their position,
as water finds its level."

of the best and purestmen in this Common
wealth, is superseded as postmaster at Har

removed Bergner and appointed Knipe, and
although the Senate lingered awhile over
the appointment, the influence of Senators
Cowan and Buckalew finally effected its con
firmation. Had it not been for the "indefa
tigable exertions of these true friends of the
Union and the Soldiers, the appointment of
General Knipe would have buried in the
tomb of the Capulets, by Sumner, Wade &
Co. But the whole Democracy, combined
with the conservative Republican vote of
the Senate, secured its confirmation. We

Assault and Highway Robbery. We
learn from the Clinton Republican, that on
Sunday evening a week, between seven and
eight o'clock, Mr. J. McCormick, who re
sides below Lock Haven while on his way
to town, was attacked near the dam by three
men, who knocked him down with a stone
or slung-shot, and rifled his pocket of thirty
or forty dollars in greenbacks. The blow
which was on the back of the head, a little
above the right ear, rendered him insensible
fir a moment, but inflicted no serious injury.
The approach of Mr. Alexander Maxleni
(who was only about fifty yards distant
when the attack was made, and saw the
whole transaction) frightend the villains,
who ran toward town and made their escape.
Three persons, J. A. Kunes and G. B.
Nicholson, of Beech Creek, and Charles
Hunter, a joung man from Columbia county,
who were known to have been in that neigh
borhood together about the time of the oc
currence, and whose previous character
rendered them liable to suspicion, were on
Monday last arrested, and after a hearing
before justice Batehelor, they were commit
ted in default of bail of $1,000 each, and
are now in the Clinton county jail to await
their trial at the next Court Kunes and
Nicholson are said to be old offenders, but
Hunter who seems to be quite young, if
guilty of participating in this criminal ad
venture, may have been tempted into it
against his better instincts and habits. Ly
