A Radkal Rebellion Threat-

The Radicals are preparing to rebel in
case any of the Southern States are needed
to elect the Democratic candidate. John•
son, the Radical candidate for Attorney I; en.
oral of Missouri, made a at Saline.
in that State, a week ago, in which he said,
repeating the sentiment several times:
"There could and should be but one re.
milt to the election this liill—that licneral
Grant, backed by the army and supported
by the whole Radical party, would prevent,
with the bayonet, the inauguration of a
Democratic administration at Washington,
and that the Radical State Government at
Jefferson would resist and ;tut down in the
Same way any attempt to inaugurate the
Democratic party into power in this State."
Such is the revolutionary and bloody pur
pose of the Radicals. The only way to act•
do them is for the people of the Northern
States to overwhehn them at the polls.—
Conservative Republicans should understand
that if they would prevent the threatened
Radical revolution, the vote for Seymour
and Blair must be made decisive in the
Northern States. Moderate thinking men

pointed in not having the promised and in
sured "intellectual treat." Thu great r ,
ored Demosthenes is traveling the country
in the interest of the Radical party. The
Grunt and Grab•tax party have enlisted all
the intelligence there is in the African race
to aid in the election of their Presidential
candidates. It has not been disputed that
the Radical party favor amalgamation, negro
suffrage, and negro equality, therefore it is
not strange that they should have negrees
out stumpiugethe sate. It only goes to
prove that Mr. (Row is ha/ d up fur speak.
ors—that reputable white men will not en
gage in the business of stumping for this
corrupt party and their sinking cause.

the field. Mereur ought to be beaten sure ;
if one can't do it, three should be able to
defeat him. The Radicals are a good deal
frightened in this District already. We
bear of "good Republicans" almost every
day, who will not vote the Radical ticket
this fall. With a good nomination we can
carry this Congressional District. The pros.
poets tor success to the Democratic nominee
for Congress in this black District never
looked more nattering than they do at the
DCRINU the past Week we have wet a
number of persons who voted against us
last fall, who declare that henceforth they
must vas the Democratic ticket. They
say that the affiliation of the bloodstained
Southern negroes with Northern Abolition
politicians iu the Chicago Convention—the
enthusiastic reception of the would-be intel
ligent blacks of that party—the new civil
war hinted at by the leading f►ieuds of
Grant and Colfax, are all public events that
attract the attention of every careful and in-
Wiligent voter of the country.

Greeley Howling al ' , icy MOUE.
The New Yolk Tritium , opposes Horatio
Seymour with extreme bitterness. This is
not to be wondered at. (;,coley was an
original seeessiunist, whilst Seymour was no
original Union man. 1% hen the original
secessionists or the South were endeavoring
to work up the Southern people to the
point of rebellion, I; reeky assisted them by
declaring that they had a right to secede.
Seymour took the opposite view, holding
that no State eould secede from the Union.
And when at length the South, encouraged
by Greeley and others of the same kidney,
made the attempt to go out, tiny. Seymour
sent the legions of New York to the battle
field equipped in a manner that put to
shame the shoddy equipments furnished by
the Radical State authorities of Pennsyl
t;ree.ley appalled by the rnion sentiment
that displayed itself in the North, and
especially in the great Pemocmtie city of
New York, abandoned the advocacy of the
secession cause and bawled awhile on the
Union side. But his heart was not in it,
and when reverses overtook the Federal
arms, he tried to aid his Southern eo•work
era in the secession eause by advocating
peace on any terms. He even went so far
as to hold a curare:leo with Jake Thomp
son and others at Niagara Falls, but the
Rebels ingq there, like honorable men,
have refrained from makiug known any
treasonable propositions or suggestions he
may have communicated to them, so that
the full measure of his guilt is not known
to the public. When the tide turned h i
thvor of the Federal arms, ho bawled for
the Union again ; but he has never forgiven
Seymour Pm bafflinq his attempts to help
the SJuthern secessionists to get out of the

FoItNEV KNIKIRSES SEVMOUR.—Iii June
of Istl3, when Pennsylvania was invaded,
Governor Seymour so promptly sent all the
forms at his command to our aid, that (icy.
crnor Curtin publicly thanked him in a
speech, and Forney thus landed him in the
Avis, which is now so loud in its abuse of
him. Said Forney :
'Heuer to New York ! 11cr Governor
has acted like a man who knows when the
time for partisanship is at an end. 11cr
gallant SOMA is now at Ilarrisburg, and,
side by side with our brave Pennsylvanians,
preparing to resist the invaders. This is
the true spirit of brotherly love. Ilut while
the City of New York is doing so touch to
save our State, what is the City of Phila
delphia doing ? '
Can't the /Wm find room f►r the republi
cation of the above extract? It would be
remembered by many of its readers.
MERE is a clerical typographical error in
the Democratic platform, which does not
appear to have been heretofore notiml. It
is in the Sth Resolution, which declares
against "the almoluie doctrine of immuta
ble allcgianm," which should read: "0/49-
lac doctrine of immutable allegiance ;" a
very wide difference certainly. This clause
is expressive of the sentiment of the Dem
ocratic party, opposed to the European doc
trine, "once a citizen always a citizen." It
was intended to declare that the naturalized
citizen was entitled to all t h e rights and pro
tection abroad to which a native born citizen
was ; and hence the correction is an im
portant one. We invite the attention of
our cotemporaries to the correction and sug
gest that. they give it in their columns.

The reader must not commit the error of
supposing that the above tables show the
sums of all the appropriations for each year.
Theme figures cover only the cost per head
of the members, clerks and attaches of each
Legislature. The appropriations made by
them fix other purposes, amount to many
millions, and arc not here taken into the ac
count at all. In order to make the matter
dearer, let the above sums hi divided into
133, the whole 11111Hher of Fenators and
Representatives. and the cost of each mem
ber to the State will be ascertained. Thus,
a member of the Democratic Leg;slature of
1558, with his proi , ortion of the incidental
ex p enses li dded to his salary, cost the State
f-. 1.296, whilst a member of the Radical
Legislature of 1568, with his proportion of
the incidental expenses added to his salary,
cost $.2„631! 11 ith the different,: between
gold and greenbacks added to the cost of

"The 'Post' is the initiatory degree in

very 'limply. In order to delude those who
have been in the service of the United

made that the G. A. it. is not of a political
character, and that its object is only to pro
mote the interests of those who were in the
army. But upon initiation the novice is
obliged to vote for a soldier as against a
civilian, mikes otherwise instructed by the
order, which means that in case a Radical
civilian is a candidate fur office against a
Demovratie soldier, the order will instruct
its members to vote for the civilian. Thus
the 'Post' is used as a political machine, and
as it is under the control or the Supreme
Commandery, this subordinate brauch is
subject to military duty under the orders of
the Supreme Commander. This, however,

to be called upon to announce, the unex
pected death of Mr. Samuel Seeley, eldest
son of Cul. S. S. Seeley, editor of the Jersey
Shore Herald. This young man, who was
about 17 years of age, bad been afflicted for
several months with a diseased leg, until
last Friday, when it was amputated near the
body, by Doctors Strauss, McKinney, Pfouts
and Grier, successfully, but reaction did not
take place and the patient died on Saturday.
We deeply sympathize with Cul. Seeley
and his Family, in their sad bereavement.
Another son of theirs has also a long time
been similarly afflicted, and although maim
ed for life, has partially recovered. May
they place their confidence in Him, who

Huth front our presenee torn
A tender brother kind and dear,
Whose loss we dearly mourn.
Just in the flower and bloom of youth,
The morning of his day,
Like snow beneath the vernal sun,
Our blether pasted away.
Like fruit that falls beli - tre its time,
Or flower cut down at noon,
He withered by death's blightuing breath
And sank into the tomb.
But why should we lament his death ;
He has left a world of strife,
And though we miss our brother dear,
He has gained eternal life.
