THURSDAY NOVEMBEH 10, 1868. Tbanktiglvtiip. ComttllMWealth ojf Pennsylvania : Unto Ood, oor Creator, we tire Indebted for liTe and all Ita blessings. It, therefore, becomes us at times to render unto Him the homage of grateful hcf.rts; and in the performance of our sacred duties, to setupart ppecial periods to ''enter into His pates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise." For this purpose, and in accordance with an established custom, I have designated Thurs day, TUB 2tiTH DAY Or XOVEMBKR NEXT, and I recommend that the people of this Common wealth on that day refmin from their usual avocations and pursuits, and assemble at their chosen places of worship, to "praise the name of God and mngnify Him with thanks giving;"' devoutly to acknowledge their de pendence, and lay upon His altars the cheer ful offerings of grateful hearts. Let us thank Him with Christian humility for health and prosperity, abundant harvests, the protection of commerce, and advance ment of scientific, mechanical and manufac turing interests ; our progress in education, morality, virtue and social order; the increase of our material wealth ; exemption from pes tilence and contagious diseases and the de structive lufluences of war ; for having Dies sed us aa a peope and a nation, and opened before us the brightest prospects tor the iu ture ; and for all other blessings, both tem poral and spiritual. With sure reliance upon Divine favor, let ns pray for the forgiveness of our sins king public confession of our epend'ence, that we may continue worthy 0f fij3 parental love and protecting cr? - " viva and icitgujus nner'.a And political rights may remain 'unimpaired; that we may remember with gratitude our country's brave defenders, and cherish with sympathy their widows and orphan children ; and that our paths through life may be directed by the example and instructions of the Redeemer, who died that wc might enjoy all the blessings which flow therefrom, and eternal life in the woild to come. Given under my hand and the Great Seal of the State, at Harrisburg, this twenty eighth day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-ty-eight, and of the Commonwealth the ninety-third. John W. Geaby. By the Governor: F. Jordan, Sec'y of the Commonwealth. Constitutional Representation. The XIV th amendment to the National Constitution, ratified before the adjourn ment of the last Congress, provides that when any State shall deny to any of its citizens the privilege of the ballot on ac count of race or color, the number of its representatives shall be diminished in the same ratio as the number so disfranchised bears to the population of such State. Certain States, Kentucky and Maryland, each contain a large percentage of popu lation to whom suffrage is denied for the causes mentioned in the amendment, and consequently are not legally entitled to the same representation in Congress which they have heretofore had. Delaware would be in the same predicament were it not she has never had more than one rep resentative, of which she cannot so long as she remains a State be deprived. In order that this provision of the amendment may be carried into effect, it is necessary that Congress make a new apportionment of the representatives among the different States. But this, Congress failed to do at its last session, most probably because it would necessarily have to be done at the close of an extra ordinarily long sitting. The last appor tionment made by Congress authorized to Kentucky nine and to Maryland five representatives, and in pursuance of this apportionment those States at the late elections chose the number allotted. It is evident that the number chosen is not in compliance with the Constitution. It is equally evident that they acted in perfect good faith. The question now comes up, shall these representatives be allowed to hold their scats in the coming Congress 'I It is argued by those who say they shall not, that the-number of representatives elected is in violation of her Constitution, and is therefore illegal, and as it is not proper for Congress to say which of these representatives should ana which should not retire, the only recourse is to deny the right of sitting to the entire delegations. We hold the proposition to be rotten in point of logic, and impolitic in point of practice. First of all, we maintain that no State should bo deprived of her repre sentation for light, or trivial, or mere tech nical, cause. Next, as a principle, we say tiat no person, real or corporate, should or can rightfully be held to the conse quences of violating a Jaw so long as the lawm iking power has left it impossible for him to obey it. If this is not the coiTcct view, then not only may States be de prived at any time of representation in the National councils, but fines may be impos ed, property confiscated, and the citizen biuibulf eabt into prison for not doing what he could not do. It is an old and long settled principle of construing laws that acts of the Legislature which command wh.it is iai possible to be performed are of no binding force. In the present case, it was utterly impossible for any State to comply with the amendment until Con gress had paved the way by a new appor tionment. How, then, shall a State be punished for its non-compliance ? Hut it. is no less against good law than aainst good comniou souse that while the culpa bility, if any, rests uron Congress. tlu penalty should be visited upon Keyi- ttfccfcy and Maryland. But if the principle is good against one State, it is equally good applied to alL Suppose, then, that the States representing a quorum of Congress had been placed in the same condition as Kentucky and Ma ryland now ore. Their representatives could not have legally taken their seats. Nor could the respective States have elec ted others, for it is the duty of Congress, not the States, to make the apportionment, the Constitution expressly so providing. There would then be this dilemma : The States could not elect under the old ap portionment without a violation of the Constitution. Nor could they themselves apportion representatives unless in viola tion of that instrument. As a conse- scquence, Congress could never again constitutionally assemble. It is useless to say this is an extreme case. It is a very possible case. But extreme cases are the tests of rules where the rules r,'t on principle. Where a law dyoS not sccurc its own enforcement is thc duty of tne Legislature provide for that enforce mo.Li; Dy proper legislation. Until it does so do, it can rightfully hold no person ac countable. It will be time enough to talk of excluding these States from representa tion when they shall have refused to abide by an apportionment made under the XlVth amendment. But if the argument is good for anything, it was just as good the day the amendment was adopted as now, and the delegations from Kentucky and Maryland should have instantly been ousted from their seats. There is no such law nor logic nor common reason that would exclude States from representation guilty of no wrong nor even of neglect. Test of Character. Each individual of every community must necessarily have some sort of char acter. It is possible for him to be with out reputation, but a character is as cer tain to be a consequence of his existence as that death should follow birth. More than this his character may be one sort, and his reputation another. Character is what the man is, and may be described as the sum total of his habits. Reputation is what he is reputed to be. It is possible that .a man be a scoundrel, and have the reputation of a saint ; or be a saint, and y et looked upon as dishonest. A man's reputation should accord with his charac ter, and it is important to the community in which he lives, as well as to the State at large, that it do so accord. Nor is there any agency by which the two may be made to harmonize other th?.n such as each community establishes for itself. The law is powerless in the case, for the plain reason that it could enforce no rule that it might adopt. But were it other wise, it should not prescribe a rule, for to do so would be to usurp the province of private judgment and to destroy all indi viduality of thought and action. The object to be attained by the adoption of a rule is the good of the State or communi ty. It ought to be such u One as would tend, in its application, to make sincere men and good citizens. Now, what is such a rule ? Let us suppose a case : A man of inquiring mind concludes, how ever mistakenly, that the Christian religion is false, but he perceives that if he openly avows his conviction, he will lose his re spectability, by which . term is usually designated the possession of an entree to "good society;" and if he is a man in business, he will lose a great portion of his custom also. As a consequence, he shrinks from the avowal, continues a profession which he regards as a mere superstition, and at last almost imperceptibly to himself becomes the chief of canting hypocrites. But would this be the case if a man were judged solely by what ho is and does, rath er than by what he professes ? In the days of the English commonwealth, when thc Puritanic influence had reached its hight, thc most sincere Furitan was put to the blush in all his professions and all his scriptural phrases and sepulchral tones by thc most graceless hypocrites and shameless libertines. So it will continue to be to the extent that men acquire" de ference and respectability by virtue of their professions. Adherence to a partic- i ular system, assent to certain dogmas, or .idhsion to particular forms, should weigh liPthing in our estimate of charac ter, or in the confidence or the lack of it which wc may show towards cur fellow". If a man dots well, if he love justice and hate wrong, if he is industrious in his hab its and upright in his life, the motives that move him must be good. The question is net, is his theology correct t or his philos ophy sound ? We yield to none in love of a correct theology and sound philosophy. But the very end and aim of these is pu rity of life, industry, cleanliness, and love of justice, It may be objected, and plaus ibly, too, that a community whose inquiry is directed to what a man is and does rath er than to what a man believes aud thiuks, undermines the foundation of religion aid encourages skepticism and infidelity. 3he objection does not weigh much with as, nevertheless we give it this answer : M,ny persons assume an air of religion an c as sent to Christian truth, because the ias3 of those about them do the same. , Bit if Christian truth, or any other truth, rere less taken for granted, it would be moe of ten accepted intelligently and more fre quently rejected, not because thoroug. in vestigation could lead to different reiilts, but because it would sometimes be neoher candid nor thorough, and very frequ'atly as crotchety as the investigator himscf. Yet this would result : Insincere 7xm9 having nothing to gain by profession of a particular belief or observance of foi would have no temptation to maV thoone or observe the other.

J I wo weeks ago, an article appeared in these columns relative to the alleged dem ocratic election frauds in the 21st Con gressional district f of this State. Tliii article contained, in the general specified tion of frauds charged, a statement to thetown -Williamsburg and Newry, is talk'ed effect that certain foreign-born inmates of the St. Xavier Catholic Monastery at Youngstown, Westmoreland county, voted at the October election without first hav ing gone through the formality of obtain ing naturalization papers. The article in ouestion was copied from the Uniontown Standard and duly credited to that paper, and was published by us as an item of current political report, and without a word of comment. But the editor of the Freeman, who imagined he saw a point to be made in his own favor, fished out the extract referred to above, and, maliciously assuming it to be our utterance, and en deavoring to make his readers believe it such, proceeded to say : "Now we will bet either of the editors of the Alleghanian $500 that not a "member of 'the Catholic Monastery of St. Xavier' voted unless he was either a native or naturalized citizen. Such stuff we would expect from Covode, a born Know-Nothing, and his toad ies, but the Alleghanian does not believe it, and ought not to publish it. It is pretty hard fare for its Catholic readers to charge that their clergymen and religieuse are guilty of perjury; and violation of the election laws." The editor of the Freeman is over anxious to display his zeal in his new-found faith. -We made no accusation against St. Xavier ; wemerely printed a news paragraph as we found it in an exchange. St. Xavier may be a very nice institution, three stories high, built of brick, and sup plied with all the modern c.rz?;f nces and on the other hand, it may be an hum ble, unpretentious concern we don't know which. Its inmates who voted may have all been legally qualfied to exercise the elective franchise ; and again, maybe some or all of them oujrht to have been non voters. We know nothing about this either, and it can scarcely be said Oi us that we particularly care. But we do know that the Freeman has resorted to a very low trick to injure us and gain ap plause for itself from a certain class of people. The ability to offer to bet $500 may be a nice thing, but the possession of at least a modicum of honesty and common decency is a nicer. The editor of the Freeman . may be largely endowed in the former respect, but we fear he is lacking in the latter. U. S. Senator. Our next Legislature will elect a Re publican successor to Hon. Charles A. Buckalew in the United States Senate. Who will be thc man ? The names of a large number of Republicans are mention ed in that connection all good men and true, and worthy and well qualified to -fill the office. But the name of Hon. John Scott, of Huntingdon, appears to loom up most prominently in the foreground.. Mr. Scott is everywhere known to be one of the ablest men in the State. We heard a gentleman say, not long since, that he had "listened to all the best speakers of either- party during the late campaign, and that John Scott was a head and shoulders above any and all of them in point of gen eral ability' This is high, but merited, praise. k Then, he is a representative Re publican -an advocate and' exponent of the adranced principles of thc great Re publican creed. We trust the State will honor itself by electing Mr. Scott to rep resent it in the upper house of Congress. He will reflect a higher measure of credit upon the State in that capacity than prob ably any other available man. A Democratic election board in Taw- amensing, Carbon county, Pennsylvania, on the 3d day of November last, received the vote of a negro, his ballot being for Seymour and Blair. How arc you, White Man's Party ? South Carolina and Alabama having gone for Grant, and Oregon for Seymour, the final count of Presidential electors stands as follows: Grant, 214; Seymour, 80.
