THURSDAY, JANUAF.Y "SG, 1SCS."
Thk Republican State Committee met
in llarrisburg on the 221 inst , and, after
a full conference, selected Wednesday,
March 11th, as the time, and Philadel
phia as the place, for holding ilic Ke
publiean State Convention to nominate
candidates for Auditor General and Sur
veyor General, and to select four delegates
At large to the National Republican Con-
lr a number of years past, a few
persons, representing various religious
societies of Western Pennsylvania, have
aununlly met together to express their
desire and advocate the propriety of hav
ing incorporated into the National Con
stitution a clause "acknowledging God as
the source of all authority in civil gov
ernment, the Lord Jesus Christ as the
ruler among all nation?, and His will re
vealed in the Holy Scriptures as of su
preme authority." Similar meetings, we
believe, are also held in other parts of the
With the motives of these men, we shall
not deal. But the wisdom of the change
advocated, we impugn. So far from hold
ing it to be wise, we regard it as a folly
and a crime. Wo do not suppose such a
change will ever be made ia our National
Constitution, nor in that of any of the
States, yet should it by any cbanct3 occur,
it will be cause for deep lamentation
among all lovers of religious freedom.
Our fathers established the principles of
our Constitution upon a very great truth,
a truth that arises not from the nature of
civil government, but from the geuius
and express teachings of the Christian
religion. With the Jews, government
was a theocracy. So, also, with the boa-"
then. The same hand that upheld civil
order and administered civil justice, up
hold also the ecclesiastical structure and
dispensed the lites of religion. With
those religions, on the one hand spurious,
and on the other merely preliminary,
preparatory to the better religion that was
to follow, the course pursued was doubt
less the dictate of wisdom. Whether all
religious are false or not, the fact is patent
that no State has ever existed without the
aid of religion, and with a religion too
weak to be its own support it was better
that it should be upheld by the State
than that it should totter to. its fall, Rut
on the coming of the Christian faith, there
dawned a new era. Then this alliance of
Church with State was to end. Yet ever
since, there have been men anxious to
confound the two, who would have the
Church wed the State, and the State the
Church, in as unholy a union as that
whioh robbed heaveu of one-third of its
As to the present movement, the very
first words used to express one of the aims
sought, include a sophism. Paul said,
"The powers that be are ordained of God,"
and hence we 6bouId render them obedi
ence. Put Paul used the words when
under and surrounded by heathen civil
government, whose people he was earnest
ly striving to turn to the true worship.
These governments rejected and even
spurned the true God, yet Paul said they
weie ordained of llitn. Evidently, theu,
his entire meaning was that all civil gov
ernment was by I is sanction, II is approval.
Our own Declaration ot Independence
says the people are the source of all au
thority in civil government, lot there
:s no contradiction. All governments
should rule for the good of the people,
and so ruling, are approved of heaven.
Put this ckioe, if incorporated iuto
our Constitution, would establish a faith,
an act in direct repugnance to the Consti-
.Hnn. It would lay a deep aud broad
basin for persecution. L.et u.? admit Cod
to be the source of all authority in civil
government. What of iff Is Ho not
the fouroe of all things? Why re
strict the acknowledgement? What is
our Constitution but a compact, and if wo
tihuuH make this acknowledgement iu oue
coin pact, why not iu al. If these men
!rivv a bond cr docd, or a lease of prop
erty, do they go to the trouble of making
all theec acknowledgments ? If not, why
i.ot ? Thb otJy difference is that the
bond, deed, or lease would be a compact
between two or three, while our Constitu
tion is a compact between millions. Is
not GoJ, too, :L? authority in al! matters
of moral rectitude t" necessary to the ex
ceutiuu of all pledge ?
Put thc-c men would fe-o further. They
define the vcyy God when. (Key would
have ihu roeniied, and clearly desig
nate the religion wl,ieh lhey wo'ald ia
corporate into udT institution. A civil
Constitution declaring 'Mt- humble ana
ovcr-forgi"ing Nazarene to be the rnler
i.ations and His scriptures as f
supreme authority iu civil government!
Put let us suppose tnis cnange maue.
Then he who denies the divine character
of th? Bible, or that God is r3vealed in it,
or tho divinity of Jesus, violates the Con
stitution of It is country and is deserving
of fine, imprisonment, or even death! In
common with our whole country, we pre
fer civil and religious freedom to any
such fanaticism as this.
T!ie Judiciary Question.
. The law now before Congress proposing
to require a two-third vote of the Judges
of the Supreme Court of the United States
elicits very general and animated discus
sion. It is matter of regret that much of
this discussion is iu a mere party spirit,
aud apparently more with reference to its
possible or probable effect on a decision
or two soon to be rendered than to its in
fluence in the f uture. Such measures, as
mere party measures, should never be re
sorted to. Aside from their bad influence
iu lessening the reverence of the people
for the laws and customs of the country,
they are very apt to re-act some time or
other upon those with whom they origi
nate. In this case, 7hile circumstances
might make the act at present somewhat
disadvantageous to the Democratic party,
their leaso of power io the nation even for
a single Congress might easily cause it to
enure to their benefit. But advantages or
disadvantages to parties, as such, are not
worthy of consideration in cases of this
That the present measure is constitu
tional, wo do not regard as admitting
successful denial. That instrument ex
pressly enjoins on Congress the establish
ment of a Supreme Court, aad authorizes
it to form inferior jurisdictione. In dis
charging these duties, discretion must
necessarily be used by Congress in many
respects, such as the times of holding
Courts, the number of circuits aud the
extent of each, and the number of judges
to compose each couit. No man doubts
the authority and power of Congress for
any of these purposes. Yet some vehe
mently deny that Congress may declare
the number of judges necessary to over
turn on3 of its laws. It is this point we
wish more particularly to consider.
On the first institution cf the Court,
six judges were placed cn the bench, of
whom the lav? required that four should
concur in pronouncing a decision over
turning an act of Congress. It was only
whan the number of judge3 wa3 increased
that in point of fact the two-thirds rule
was abolished. The requirement that
two-thirds of a Court shall concur in up
setting a law is not an anomaly to our
Constitution. In case of the impeach
ment of the President, the Senate sits as
the highest Court in the land, the Chief
Justice presiding. The trial is conduct
ed according to tha forms and rules of
law. The Senate emphatically consti
tutes a Court of law. Yet neither the
President nor any other officer impeached
can be convicted unless two-thirds of the
members present concur.
In every District and County Court in
this State, two out of three judges are re
quired to agree in pronouncing a decis
ion. In case of juries, the verdict must
be unanimous. It is argued by some that
iu case of a jury, the requirement of una
nimity is as favorable to one as to another.
But how so ? The presence of one cor
rupt juryman will set a clearly proven
culprit loose upon the community. Or if
a dishonest man obtains possession of
another man's land or other species of
property, one corrupt juryman will enable
him to retain it.
It is also argued that the proposed
change is unconstitutional, by reason of
the common law which requires but u
inajority decision. We venture to say
the coiiimon law has no case nnalagous to
this, or if analagou?, is in its favor. The
only measure of English law is whether
or not it is part of the common law or an
act of Parliament. If either of these, all
the judges of England cannot overturn it.
Where, then, is the analogy ? An una
nimity of the English judges dare not
overturu a solemn act of the Legislature.
Their whole business is to construe and
to apply it. The authority of our judges
to declare a lav; unconstitutional is not
derived from English law, but from the
peculiar nature of our own institutions.
Wo do not regard our Judges as gen
erally partisan. Of course, there are
some such, but, we are prone to believe,
uOt many. Yet in certain cases, it may
be very nearly guessed beforehand what
will be the decision of a JuJgo from a
knowledge of" his politics. But why ?
Because he is a partisan ? No. The dif
ference between the two great political
parties, iu some respects at least, is funda
mental. A strict constructionist of the
Constitution must ever differ in bis views
of many public measures from one who
holds to opposite sentiments in reference
to construing that great instrument. Yet,
If such a man is elevated to the Bench, it

A Democratic Speech.
i v- "
On the 15th instant, a resolution was
offered in the Pennsylvania House of Rep
resentatives, by Mr. Kleckner, of Phila
delphia, endorsing the action of the U. S.
Senate in reinstating Hon. Edwin M.
Stanton as Secretary of War. The reso
lution ultimately passed. During its prog
ress through the House, a large number
of members took advantage of the occa
sion to ventilate their oratory cn subjects
of National import. Among others who
delivered themselves - of speeches, was
Cambria county's representative, Col. Lin
ton, who deliberately, if -not indignantly,
placed himself on record as opposed to the
resolution. Mr. Lintou's speech in this
connection is highly lauded by the Fret
man as "a most scathing rebuke of," &c.
We have carefully looked oyer the speech,
aud must confess that we are able to find
nothing especially scathing in it nothing
wherein it essentially differs from the
great volume of common-place Democrat
An analysis of Mr. Linton's effort gives
about the following propositions :
1. The rebel General Lee was an able
general, a courageous general, a masterly
2. The Democratic party are the only
true and steadfast supporters of the Con
stitution. 3. The reinstatement of Mr. Stanton
4. Mr. Stanton was and ia a poor pat
riot and a bad man.
That's the old, old story. During the
war, we were told by the Democrats
1. That General Lee was so able a gen
eral, he could not be overthrown.
2. That the Democratic party, even
while affording treason all the aid and
comfort in their power, were the only true
and steadfast supporters of the Constitu
tion. 3. That the prosecution of the war for
the Union was unconstitutional.
4. That Mr. Stanion was the Jonah of
the Republic, without whose immolation
we would never have peace.
"History is not yet written' Mr.
Linton takes care to impress upon his
hearers and readers. But history ia at Ieaat
madet and when it comes to be written,
it will be found that the record of the
Democratic party will occupy the black
est page of the book. All the Democrat
ic oratory of a century cannot affect that
Subjoined is an extract from Senator
Morton's great speech on reconstruction,
delivered iu the U. S. Senate on Friday
"Mr. President, the column of recon
struction, as I before remarked, has risen
slowly. It has Dot been hewn from a
single stone. Jt is .composed of many
blocks, painfully laid up and put together,
and cemented by the tears and blood of
the nation. Sir, we have done nothing
arbitrarily. We have done nothing for
punishment ay, too little for punishment.
Justice has not had her demand. Not a
man has yet been executed for this great
treason. The arch fiend himself i3 now
at liberty upon bail. No man is to be
punished; aud now, while punishment
has gone by, as we all know, we are
insisting only upon security for the future.
We are simply asking that the evil spirits
who brought this war upon us shall not
again come into power during this gene
ration, again to biing upon us rebellion
and calamity. We are simply asking for
those securities that we deem necessary
for our peace and the peace of our poster
ity. Sir, there is ono great difference
between this Uuiou party and the so-called
Democratic party. Our principles are
those of humanity; they are those of
justice; they are those of. equal rights ;
they are are principles that appeal to
the hearts acd the consciences of men ;
while on the other side we hear appeals
to the prejudice of race against race.
The white man is overwhelmingly in the
majority in this country, and that major
ity is yearly iucreaaed by half a million
of white rueu from abroad, and that ma
jority gaining. in proportion from year to
year until the colored men will finally be
but a handful in this country ; and yet wo
hear the prejudices of the white race
appealed to to crush this other Taoe, and
to prevent it from rising to supremacy
and power. Sir, there is nothing noble,
there is nothing generous, there is noth
ing lovely, in that policy or that appeal.
How does that principle compare with
ours? We are standing upon the broad
platform of the Declaratioa of Indepen
dence, that 'all men are created equal;
that they are endowed by their Creator
with certain inalienable rights; that
among these are life, liberty, and the
pursuit of happiness.' We say that these
rights are not given by laws ; are not
given by the Constitution ; but they are
the gift of God to every man born into
the world. Oh, Sir, ho;7 glorious is this
great principle compared with the inhu
mau I might say heathenish appeal to
the prejudice of race against race; the
endeavor further to excite the strong
against the weak; the endeavor further
to deprive the weak of their rights of
protection flgairist the strong?"
February 24 has -been fixed for the
trial of Surratt. It will be remembered
that when this case was previously attack

disagreement and sickness.
"The Blue-Coats, and how they Lived,
Fought and Died for the Union ; with
Scenes and Incidents in the Great Rebel
lion," is the title of a handsome volume,
just issued by Jones Brothers &, Co.r
Philad'a, Pa. There is .a certain portion
of the War that will never go into the
regular histories, nor be "embodied in
romance or poetry, which is a very real
part of it, and will, if preserved, convey to
succeeding generations a better idea of the
spirit of tlie conflict than many dry reports
or careful narratives of events, and this
part may be called the gossip, the fun,
the pathos of the "War. Thb illustrates
the character of the leaders, the humor of
toe soldiers, the devotion of women, the
bravery of men, the pluck of our heroes,
the romance and hardships of the service.
From the beginning of the war, the author
has been engaged in collecting all the
anecdotes connected, with or illustrative of
it, and classified them under appropriate
heads, and in a very attractive form. The
volume is profusely illustrated with over
100 fine engravings, by the first artists,
and its contents include reminiscences of
camp, picket, spy, scout, bivouac, siege,
and baftle-field, with thrilling feats of
bravery, wit, drollery, comical and ludi
crous adventures, etc., etc. Amusement
as well as instruction may be found iu
every page, as graphic detail, brilliant
wit, and authentic history, are skillfully
interwoven in this work of literary art.
It is just such a volume as will find
numerous purchasers, and just such a oue
as persona seeking to act as book agents
should add to their list.
John Jacob Astou, the second son of
Jobn Jacob, the millionaire, died in New
York on Friday morning, in the G5th
year of his age. In early youth Mr. Astor
gave much intellectual promise, but, at
about the age of 17,. he accidently fell,
striking on his head, aud thus his menial
faculties were impaired. His father, after
vain efforts to effect his restoration, built
ou Fourteenth street, near the North
River, a mansion for his accommodation.
It occupies one entire block, and is sur
rounded " by a high fence, to prevent
prying and curious eyes from seeing the
movement of the occupants. On . the
death of the father, one of the principal
items in his will was a provision intrust
ing the younger John Jacob to the care
of a physician in whom he placed implicit
confidence, and settling a handsome in

Some newspaper, eays tho New York
Sun, has insinuated that General Grant
failed to meet an appointment with Mr.
Johnson relative to the recent War Office
muddle, because he was hilarious, i. e.

insinuations without thinking of an anec
dote of Mr. Lincoln. After the victory
of Pittsburg Landing, a furious raid was
made ou the President to cashier Grant
on the charge that lie was not .sober du
ring that -terrible battle. A committee
who had '-waited upon him to urge this
course, "were cowed into silence and shame
as the Pre.'ideut rose from his eeat, and
standiug six feet four inches, said, "Gen
tlemen, I wish you would tell me where
Grant buys his whisky. I would like to
send a barrel of the same brand to each of
our generals." -

It is generally known that Mr. Robi
soo, Republican, is contesting the seat in
the Stat'e Senate of Mr. Shugart, Dem.
The subjoined extract, from the Harris
bur" correspondence of tho Pittsburg
Commercial shows the ground upon which
the contest is based, and also will give
some idea of the purity ot Democratic
politics io the Twenty-first district :
"The principal ground for contesting
Mr. Sbugart s 6oat is, that quite a uum
her of Irishmen had voted on false natu
ralization papers, and others had been
brought into the district and kept there
ten day9 prior to the election, for the
express purpose of voting. Mr. Shugart's
majority was only twenty-two votes, and
it was alleged that there were near one
hundred illegal votes polled in one plac
in Centre county. It appears that there
was a railroad being made from Phillips-
burg, in Centre county, to Clearfield, and
that there were last fall about forty rods of
light work to be done near Phillipsburg,
which could have been done by twenty
men in five or six days. However, an
arrangemffct was made with an Irishman,
named O'Mara, a bosson that work, to
bring about one hundred Irishmen on that
part of the work, which was iu Centre
county, ten days before the election. This
he did, aud as soon as tfer election was
over they were sent away. ""When it was
ascertained that Shugart had only twenty
fwr majority, including the hundred ille
gal votes at Phillipsburg, and that Robi
sou was going to contest his seat, the
leaders ol the Democratic party concluded
that the Irish boss, O'Mara, who knew all
about the importation ot voters and the
fraudulent papers upon which many ol
them 70ted; must be sent out of the State.
For that purpose they employed a Catho
lic priest, known by the uume of 'Father
Tracey to induce O'Mara to leave.
Shortly before the Legislature met, Fattier
Tracey visited O'Mara and stated to him
that the Legislature would eoou meet ;
that Shugart's seat would be coutested;
that his (O'Mara's) testimony would be
very much against the Democratic party;
that it would be best for him (O'Mara) to
leave the State; that he (Trcey) had
some mouey which he was authorized to
give him (O'Mara) if he would go out of
the limits of the State, &c, &c. O Mara
asked two thousand dollars for takiug his
family out of the State never to return.
Father Tracey taid he was not authorized
to pay that much, and could not do so
until he would write to Philadelphia.
After several interviews between the
priest and O'Mara, the former at last told
the latter that William A. Wallace said
that 'a hundred dollars per month was
enough to pay for getting him to leave
the State.' Father Tracey then struck a
bargain with Mr. O'Mara to leave for he
huudicd dollars, which were paid over to
him and afterwards counted by a young
man ia Clearfield, and he accord inuly left,
aud took up hi3 abode in Elmira, New
York. But his whereabouts became
kuown to the counsel for tho contestant,
aud the Sergeant-at-Arms of the Senate
was sent to Elmira a few days ago, where
ho found Mr. O'Mara, and brought him
to this city. He was brought before the
Committee last night, and upon his oath
tes-tified to the foregoing tacts, and in
addition, he stated that another boss cn
the work above referred to took the frau
dulent naturalization papers and colored
them with coffee, so as to make them
appear old. Is not the foregoing, which
is sworn to b' au Irish Democratic rail
road boss, a disgrace to any party, and,
especially, does it not show what meas
ures the rebel sympathising Democratic
party will adopt to carry elections and
thwart the will ot the majority of the
bona fide citizens of the country ?"
We have received the annual report of
