" Berere illness prevented me last week from
appearing before you as Associate Editor of
this paper. Jly name, however, as you have
seen, was announced. have only to say
that I shall use my best endeavors to meet
your wishes. At all events I 6hall at all
times be found tattling for the cause of hu

the principles of Democracy. Being untried,
and, to some extent, inexperienced, I ehall
ask your forbearance for the present, hoping

Harmony in the South.
A correspondent of the Texas Herald gives
the following statement of the harmony
" which exists among people of all opinions in
the interior of Texas. It would be universal
. but for the Radical agitators :
When the war closed, many feared that
when the eoldiera those who went North
and those who sought protection in the brush
from what they doubtless regarded as tyran
ny and oppression returned to their homes,
that all theold grudges and ill-feelings that
were created during the war would be open
ed afresh, and that our towns and villages
would be almost a constant scene of the most
serious riots and difficulties, but I am hap
py that I am able to say that here such is
net the case. All have, like true men, re
turned to their usual vocations, and seem to
be determined to let the past die with the
past and sink into oblivion. They meet on
public occasions, transact their business with
less hard feeling, (apparently,) intoxication
and exhibition of desperation, if possible,
than before the war begun ; and although
two different parties have ever since the
close of the war, and do yet exist here, not
one single .difficulty, that resulted seriously,
has taken place in this county.
A writer in the Fall River (Mass) News
bitterly complains that nearly one-half of the
children in that place does not go to school.
There are 4,330 children there between the
ages of five and fifteen years, while the num
ber of scholars of corresponding ages in all
the public schools is only 2,342, leaving
nearly 2,000 children out of the schools.
Thy Teason is given by the complainant :
"The children are placed at work in the fac
tories when they should be in the schools."
This is in moral Massachusetts, whose Con
gressmen voted $539,000 from the public
Treasury for black buck adults down in the
canebrakes of Louisiana, Texas and else
where in the South. But do provision was
made for schooling the white children in
Massachusetts, or for "protecting," by the
Bureau or otherwise, white infants of five
years of age irom being doomed to the sla
very of factory life for the benefit of their
"philanthropic" parents.
Honor.
There is an old and well known principle,
among all classes of men, that striking an
antagonist "when he is down" is very mean
business. The principle appFes with pecu
liar force to the present condition of things
in this country. National honor is quite as
important as indi ?id ual honor. The national
honor has been pledged over and over again
to the people of the North as well as of the
South, and the Radicals unhesitatingly vio
late the pledges. Bat are there not among
them men who can see the importance of
preserving the honor of the nation in the
eyes of the world, without reference to any
written or resolved pledges? A free people
striking and continuing to strike a prostrate
foe, trampling on him with iron heel, is not
a pleasant sight to the world. It does not
give to the world any exalted picture of
Ameaican politics or even of American civ
ilization. There never was an instance of
more complete submission than that of the
South. The utterly broken down condition
of the whole Southern mind passes descrip
tion. The honorable course for the Ameri-
can people, the course which would justify
our claim to be exponents of the true prin
ciples of liberty and free government, the
course which would convince the world that
our government is what we once called it,
the most beneficent on earth, would be to
gay to the prostrate States, "You have been
compelled to abandon your secession here
sies, and we now withdraw oar hands from
- your throafi, rise and govern yourselves ac
cording to the great principles we have all
learned in the progress of our common civil
ization. -
The contrary treatment i3 cowardly. It
indicates fear. It shows want of confidence
in the doctrine of self-government. It is
the conduct of. a man who has fought be
cause he hates his antagonist, and intends to
add torture and humiliation to defeat In
the present case it is equivalent to saying to
the world, " We have boasted a great deal
of free governments, but on the whole we
do not dare to trust some millions of our
own people, educated in our own system, to
govern themselves"
With what show of reason can we tell the
people of Europe that ours is a good system
of government, when they see such an cxhi-
bitioa of want of confidence in it on our own
part? They would rightly reply to our ar
gument that we cannot get along ourselves
without practicing the most tyrannical mea-
sures of their old autocracies ; that we erect
?-n aristocracy, pretending to base it on high
. moral principles, or on superior political and
social views, and that aristocracy governs
millions of non-voting, unrepresented citi
zens. For the whole course of the Radicals
towxrd the South is opposed to the first prin
ciples cf democracy and popular government.
Democratic Meetings.
On Monday of last week, the Democracy
of Benton Township held a political meeting
at the public house or John J. Stiles, which
was presided over by our venerable and
staunch Democratic friend, Abraham Yourig,
Esq. The meeting was organized at about
three o'clock. The speakers appointed for
the occasion were Hon. Levi L. Tate and
CoL John O. Freeze. The meeting being
called to order, CoL Freeze took the stand
and spoke at considerable length.
On Tuesday evening the Democracy of
Sugarloaf Township were addressed by Hon.
Levi L. Tate, at the house of Ezcjkiel Cole.
David Lewis was chosen President The
Democracy of the township and its sur
roundings were out in large numbers to hear
the war-horse of Columbia County Democ
racy fairly and ably discuss the living issues
of the day.
The Democracy of Espy, in Scott Town
ship, were addressed by 31. M. Traugh, Esq.,
and Col. John G. Freeze, on Tuesday eve
ning the 20th inst.
On Wednesday evening last, the Democ
racy of Catawissa held a meeting, which
was addressed by Hon. C. R. Buckalew.
lie made an able, argumentative speech.
On Thursday last tho-Democracy of Jack
son held an afternoon meeting which was
addressed by Hon. William II. Miller, of
Harrisburg, and Col. John G. Freeze. There
was a lerge attendance ; and on the evening
of the same day a meeting was held in the
Court House at this place, which was ad
dressed by Jliller, Gowan, of Fotfcsville, and
Buckalew. This was one of the finest meet
ings held in this place during the whole
campaign. A large delegation was in attend
ance from Light Street.
On Friday afternoon a large meeting was
held at Jersey town. It was addressed by
Freeze, Campbell, and Chalfant.
The Democratic Club, of this place, was
addressed on Saturday evening last by E. E.
Orvis, Esq., of Williamsport in a lengthy,
able, .argumentative speech of over two
hours in length. His theme was the Con
stitutional Amendments as passed by the
last Congress. He discussed the subject of
his remarks with more than the ordinary
ability found in stump speakers. At times
his remarks were quite eloquent, especially
towards the close. The longer he spoke the
more force and eloquence he seemed to throw
into the subject. We never saw an audience
more interested and attentive than the one
in attendance. The whole affair wound up
with giving cheers for the speaker, the
band and whole Democratic ticket.
The One-Mari Power.
Sumner will never forgive the President
for refusing to be led by the ears, a3 Simmer
wanted to lead him, and he sacrifices truth,
sacrifices decency, sacrifices every dictate f
propriety, for the poor satisfaction of mak
ing a sounding peroration to his imbecile
oration :
"The President, wielding the one-man
power, has assumed a prerogative over Con
gress utterly unjustifiable, and has underta
ken to dictate a fatal policy of reconstruction
which gives sway to rebels, puts off the
blessed day of security and reconciliation,
and leaves the best interests of the republic
in jeopardy. Treacherous to party, treach
erous to the great cause, and treacherous to
himself, he has set up his individual will
against the people of the United States in
Congress assembled. Forgetful of truth
and decency, he has assailed members as
'aFsassin?,' and has denounced Congress it
self as a revolutionary body, 'called or as
suming to be Congress,' and ' hanging on the
verge of the government,' as if this most
enlightened and patriotic Congress did not
contain the embodied will of the American
people. To you, each and all, I appeal to
arrest this madness. Your votes will be the
first step. The President must be taught
that usurpation and apostacy cannot prevail.
He who promised to be Moses and has be
come Pharaoh, must be overthrown, and the
Egyptians who follow him must share the
same fate ; so that it shall bo said now as
aforetime, 'and the Lord overthrew the
Egyptians in the midst of the sea.'"
It is but just to Mr. Sumnor to say that
we bclieve,that he was aware he wa3 uttering
untruths in this extract, but that he let that
little circumstance pass, rather than spoil
the effect of well rounded sentences. With
regard to his revolutionary appeals concern
ing the President, we are content, if it sd
pleases him, that he should make them, re
membering that the government is as strong
to-day againrt Northern conspirators as it
was against Southern traitors. Boston Com
mercial.
Ben. F. Butler. Appleton's Cyclopedia
of Biography gives the following account of
one or fcpoQny Lutler s ancestral relatives:
Butler John. The atrocities committed
by this miscreant during the revolutionary
war almost exceed belief. He was a native
of Connecticut, but removed to the Gallev of
Wyoming, where, in 177S, at the head of
1,C00 men, of which 300 were Indians, and
the rest painted like Indian?, he attacked
the towns and villages of that romantic re
gion, and indiscriminately massacred those
who submitted as well as thoe who fought,
women and children as well as men. To the
question what terms would be granted, he
replied "the hatchet!" People of both
sexes and every age were indiscriminately
shut up in houses which were then set on
fire ; some were held down in the flames by
pitchforks, and in one instance, at least, a
poor wretch had his body stuck full of pine
knot splinters and then burned, etc.
Our only comment is "that blood will
tell.' "
13- Thaddeu3 Stevens says that if the
present Congress is not a legally constituted
body, etc., then the government bonds were
not legally issued. Not so fast, Thaddeus.
When the bonds were issued, all the States
were represented in Congress that could be,
or that would be. Now, however, the thing
is changed, and all the States may be and de
sire to be represented, but nearly one-third
of them are violently kept out of Congress
by the Radical Rump. The dullest mind
can perceive the sophistry of Thad's argu
ment. . -.

Political Affray in Baltimore.
Baltimore, Oct 7. On Saturday night
a shooting affray occurred in a public house
in the eastern part of the city, resulting in

The Flow of Gold to tue United
Status. The London Review has the fol
lowing: "The efflux of gold to the United
States has continued on a somewhat larirer
scale than had been looked for, although in
fact, amounting to no great sum. After the
enormous receipts from that country, a month
or tlvo back, it is not much to have to return
some two hundred thousand or three hun
dred thousand pounds in two or three suc
cessive weeks. The most satisfactory fea
ture in the movement is the confidence that
it shows in the permanence of peace in
America, and that, as far as investors are
concerned, the renewal of the civil war is
considered in the highest degree remote.
As we have already had occasion to observe,
this belief is not only felt by Englishmen and
Germans, but has latterly been shared by
Frenchmen. The five-twenty bonds, which
these shipments are made to pay for, are as
eagerly, if not more eagerly, bought in Paris
as in London and Frankfort. Not very many
years ago, scarcely any foreign securities
were quoted on the French Bourse, and it is
significant to notice how great an alternation
has taken place in this respect Except on
our own Stock Exchange, it may bedoubted
whether in any other capita! of Europe, not
even Frankfort or Amsterdam, loreign in
vestments are now so largely held as in Paris.
Formerly native capitalists would take noth
ing but the rentes ; now they arc ready to
invest in Italion, Spanish, Mexican (unfor
tunately), and many other similarsecurities.
Except, however, in rare instances, United
States bonds have been in little favor, and
hence the significance of the present de
mand." Heavy Dank Robbery,
Boston, October 7. The fact was devel
oped Friday morning that the First Nation
al Bank at Yarmouthport had been robbed
of a75,)00, and that the crime had been
perpetrated by a son of the cashier of the
Bank. The facts, so far as they have tran
spired, are as follows : It had been the cus
tom of the cashier of the Bank, Mr. Amos
Otis, to keep the coupon interest notes and
United States bonds belonging to the insti
tution in a tin trunk. His trunk was found
missing on Friday morning last, and with it
theson of the cashier, George Otis. The
father, on discovering the ituation, made all
haste to apprehend the thief and recoverthe
goods. Word was despatched to detectives
in distant cities, and so thorough was the
search, that young Otis found himself a pris
oner the next day. He was arrested at Ply
mouth, having travelled to that place during
the night On being arrested, he made a
clean breast of the whole transaction. The
stolen funds were found secreted in the bank
shed by the cashier. A small amoui.tof the
compound interest note? was missing, but
the amount was finally restored. The pris
oner is about twenty-one years of age. He
was employed in the bank. Mr. Otis, the
cashier, is a respected citizen of Yarmouth
port, It is probable that young Otis will be
held to bail.

Proclamation by the President.
Washington Oct, 8.
The following proclamation has just been
issued by the President of the United States :
Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, has
been pleased to vouchsafe to us, as a peo
ple, another year of that national life, which
is an indispensable condition of peace, se
curity, and progress. That year has, more
over, been crowned with many peculiar bless
ings. The civil war that so recently closed
among us, has not been anywhere reopened.
Foreign intervention has ceased to excite
alarm or apprehension,' intrusive pestilence
has been benignly mitigated , domestic tran
quility has improved, sentiments of concilia
tion have largely prevailed, and the affec
tions of loyalty and patriotism have been
widely received. Onr fields have yielded
quite abundantly, our mining industry has
been richly rewarded, and we have been al
lowed to extend our railroad system far into
the interior recesses of the country, while
our commerce has resumed its customary ac
tivity in foreign seas.
The great national blessings demand a na
tional acknowledgement.
Now, therefore, I, Andrew Johnson, Pres
ident of the United States, do herebyrecom
mend that Thursday, the 29th day of No
vember next, be set apart and be observed
everywhere in the several States and Ter
ritories of the United States by the people
thereof as a day of thanksgiving and praise
to Almighty God.
With due remembrance that "in his tem
ple doth every man speak of His honer,"
I recommend also that, on the same solemn
occasion, they do humbly andj devoutly im
plore him to grant to our national councils
and to our whole people that divine wisdom
which alone can lead any nation into the ways
of all good.
In offering these national thanksgivings,
praises and supplications, we have the di
vine assurance that "The Lord remainetlr
a King forever ; them that are weak shall be
guided in judgment, and such as are gentle
shall he learn his way. The Lord shall give
strength toHis people,, and the Lord shall
give to II 13 people the blessings of peace."
In witness whereof, I have hereunto set
my hand and caused the seal of the United
States to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington,
I this, the 8th of October, intheyear

The "White House Improve
ments now Being Made.
The long and much needed improvements
at the White House are making rapid pro
gress, and in a few weeks the mansion will
present a general attractiveness, becoming
the residence of the nation's Chief Magis
trate. A small regiment of workmen are
daily engaged in the lower rooms in painting,
gilding, papering and removing soiled dra
pery, which is soon to be replaced by rich
and tasteful importations from Europe, an
agent being there for the purpose of select
ing the goods. The cast room is at present
used as a depository for furniture, and will
be fitted up in a style of becoming elegance
within a week or two. The walls have al
ready been neatly hung with crimson and gold
pappering, and the worn and unsightly car
pet will be replaced by another of a much
more elegant pattern. The furniture will
remain the same, with the exception of the
covering.
In the cast, as well as in the red, blue and
green-rooms, the mirrors and chandeliers
have all been re-gilded, and present an en
tirely new and beautiful appearance. The
refitting and decoration of the green-room
have already been completed, with the ex
ception of laying the carpet, which will be
new and of an appropriate pattern. The pa
per on the walls of this, as well as of all the
other rooms, is of what is known as the pan
el style, the panels extending nearly to the
ceiling ; the borders, which are strikingly
beautiful, variegated as they are by brilliant
colors, inclosing a plain surface according
with the designation of the room.
The blue-room is to be handsomely deco
rated with blue and gold papering, in panel,
and with appropriate furhiture. The refit
ting of the red room has already been com
pleted, and in the style of its decorations
probably surpass all others. Among its most
attractive features are the beautiful gilt dev
ices on the marble fire-piece, which are de
signed and executed by Colonel Stevenson,
under whose immediate supervision the
work is being done, with a truly artistic
tastefulness which commands the admiration
of all vifitors. The state and President's
private dining-rooms have also received the
attention of the workmen, both having been
newly papered and the furniture poliicd.
The main hall opposite the entrance, is also
undergoing repairs, and has been prepared
in imitation of white and yellow marble. The
improvements will not probably be fully com
pleted befare the 1st of December.
Dangerous Counterfeit.
A very dangerous counterfeit bank-note of
$100 has been shown to us. It is on the Cen
tral National Bank of this city, but the plate
can easily be altered to any other bank in the
country. This is one of the evils arising out
of the uniformity of design for all the Na
tional Bank-notes wherever issued. .The
counterfeit before us is extremely well exe
cuted, and might easily deceive an expert.
The only way for the public to protect them
selves will be to refuse, for the present, all
$100 National Bank-notes, except they are
received from sources of well-known respect
ability. One of the peculiarities of the coun
terfeit we have referred to, is that the T in
the word "maintain," on the right hand of
the bill, is defective, and looks like the letter
I. The counterfeiter, however, can soon
remedy this defect Acic York Post, 2d.
S3F Gen. Custer's letter to General Mere
