Government. the Senate of the United

Empire State, and very anti-democratic—
and if New England he beat upon a
change, eo be it.
This is a government now of 35 States
—of which it takes some 12 or 15 of the
lesser ones to make a New York—aid
yet New York has only two Senators in
Congress, while these 15 States 'titake 30

the nearly four millions of New York.
Why, we have more people under our

A Mr. Ford appears to be the owner of
a theater in Washington City, wherein
President Lincoln was assassinated. Being
thereupon closed, Mr. Ford attempted to
open it some days afterward, but was for
bidden'and prevented. He next sold it
for a church, but the purchasers were
unable to fulfill their engagement, and
the property reverted. Last Monday
evening, he tried once more to reopen,
but was peremptorily shut up by an order
from the War Department. The Herald
says of Ford's attempt- to resume his reg

if not in fact, involved in the crime com
mitted in it, just as a murderer's weapon,
which from time immemorial has been •
forfeited to the law. The War Depart

the theater; and in doing so it only acted
up to the popular 'thought; and though
we shall on this subject hear many cop
perhead bowls, the act will receive the
full approval of the people."
It is quite probable that " the popular
thought " accords with the above assump

which dares defy " popular " impulses
when they contravene law and justice.
We had intended to let this matter pass
without comment, with many similar va

plump justification by the Herald imposes
the duty of emphatic di - sent.

It surely will not be pretended that an
imminent, overruling public danger dic

We have heard that he apprehended a
riot in case the theater were opened—so
he arbitrarily closed it . in pursuance of a
policy-to which Abolitionists of other
days were long accustomed without be
coming reconciled. The police fear your
property will be injured if you use it; so
—instead of protecting you in its use—
they forbid and prevent your using it at
all ! It would take a long and severe
training to enlighten U. 3 as to the beauties
of such legal protection.
Mr. Ford, it is' said,.evinced bad taste,
or a deficient sense of propriety, in under

months after Mr. Lincoln's assassination.
Very likely. But in what clause of the
Constitution, what chapter of the Statutes

Democratic Celebration of the Fourth at
HARRISBURG, July 8, INS
MR:Burros : As the celebration of the 4th
of July at this city partook of a party &tura,
I have thought an account of it would not be
uninteresting to your rattlers. Bat, first, let
me give you a history of how the 4 , split"
was occasioned: It, was originally the pur
pose of the citizens to have &general oelebra•
tion, participated in by all. For this purpose
a meeting was called on June 10th. The
meeting was largely attended, and good order
prevailed throughout. The Republioaas con
trivedito have one of their own party elected
President, while a vast majority of the Vice
Presidents were of the same political com—
plexion. Now, Harrisburg, as is well known,
is a strong Democratic city, and always has
been, and it would have been no more than
common justice to have allowed the Damoorats
an equal number or a majority of the officers.
Matters began to assume a political hue. It
required no great length of time, nor no keen
perception to see that the Republicans were
conducting affairs solely for partizan ends.
The Telegraph of this city, which'', the Tong
nixed organ of the RepUblicaas hereabouts,
kept up a continuous abuse of Democrats,
and was'hot long in giving vent to the follow
"One-half of what are called Democratic
voters are not tit to mingle with decent men
in any celebration, while the other half could
not be Induced to conduct such an affair,
simply because 'the greater portionlof them
have neither ability nor taste for such labors.
The Union men of ilarrisburg—the war De.
mocracy and Republicans—really constitute
the Intellect, the energy, the genius and the
respectability of the city."
It is not natural 'that the Democracy, with
such statements as these staring them in the
face, could unite in the celebration with any
degree of spirit. On the contrary, they de
termined on having one among themselves,
and for this purpose public notice was given
in the Patriot and Union, and by posters
throughout the city, of a grand old-fashioned
pio.nio, to be held in a beautiful grove ad
joining the city. The time rolled slowly by,
and the morning of the 4th 'arrived. I 144
mained in the oily long enough to witness the
Republican prooeision, which constituted the
main feature of their celebration. I had pre -
pared myself to witness something grand,
but judge of my surprise at seeing the weak.
esl demonstration of the kind ever witnessed
in Harrisburg- There was nu taste displayed,
ao enthusiasm, and is pint of numbers it
was extremely small.
Three trains were to run to the woods at
different hours. Esoh of these were filled to
the utmost. Passengers stood upon the plat
forme, and crowded the tops of the care—it
was with difficulty I found - passage on the
fourth train. When I reached the woods it
was to find them densely packed with people
—all enjoying themselves in every possible
way. Charles J. Biddle delivered the oration
tnabilikidienee, and was rapturously ap.
plaWPatriotic toasts were drank, songs
were sung, and all so disposed regaled them &
solves in I , tripping the light fantastic toe."
Immense quantities of provisions were dealt
out to the crowd, and wagons were engaged
during the whole day in carrying water to the
immense throng, but all insufficient to supply
the demand. Large numbers of soldiers were
present - to grace the scene. A salute of 100
guns was fired; all tha plays usually engaged
in at such parties were participated in, and
music, and song, and gladness ruled the hoar.
The hour of departure came too soon. Thus
passed away one of the grandest celebrations
ever witnessed by the citizens of the Capital
City—and, thus ended the best old-fashioned
gathering I ever attended. Ssyserr-Stx.

The Boston Courier says it has " a slight re•
collection that a few white men had a hand
in the matter, although the Tribune seems to
forget it." We hope it may be recalled to Mr
Greeley's memory before he finishes the
" History of the Rebellion."
The Boston Courier perpetrates the follow
ing neat syllogism: "The radicals have de
clared for four years that it is treason to op
pose the Government , in time of war. The
radicali declare that war still exists. The
radicals are opposing the government: there
fore—the radidals are guilty of treason. Let
halters be brought."
Senator Shermaa delivered the 4th of July
oration at Warren, Ohio. The central idea
of the oration was, that all men are equal in
this country—" the native and the foreign—
the White and the Black "—" any creature
upon whom the Almighty has stamped the
lineaments of 'man.'" Oa this point there
is a conflict of opinion between General and
C:iambus Delano, speaking for the Ohio
radical Republicans, a few week ago, said:,
"The heroism of negro troops has added lus
tre to our history, and without the negroes
aid our armies would not have succeeded!
The negro has fought and conquered for us,
and deserves his reward. lie has a right to
sit on juries, to hold office, and to vote as •

_rite KIIBILLION !"--The
Peoria (Ill.) News says that the distillers ar.
rested recently in that city for a violation of
the revenue law, by which they had defraud
ed the Government out of $25,000 and thus
enriched themselves, were of the "strictly
loyal persuasion, and ware loud-mouthed,
blatant revilers of the copperheads,' and
frequently boasted that they would give their
all to put down the rebellion." For four
years, under the plea_ of le putting down the
rebellion," the Treasury leeches have pre
vented a rigid scrutiny iato.the affairs of the
public treasury. The rebellion has been put
down, and the sovereign people, now called
upon to pay the iatmenee debt, are beginning
to feel that this cry has covered a vast num
ber of peculating raids upon the public treas
ury. Had it not been for the outcry made by
the Democratic party the debt would have
been greater than It- is, and the private for
tunes made out of the necessities of the nation
by the tribe of shoddy would have been even
greater than those accumulated by these dis
honest speculators. The records will show
that those who were loudest in their denunci
ation of " copperheadism," those who cried
" traitor " loudest and hurled the most infa
mous epithets at the Democratic party have
been the largest plunderers of the Treasury !
Let all the facia that can be developed be
spread before the people, from the Mileage
Grab to the Great Vessel Charter Frauds—
and then let them render a verdict as to the
political honesty of an organization that con
tains within it so many men who, while de
pouncing Democrats as dishonest, were filling
their own pockets. There is a "good .time

One of the questions of the day, in Boston,
New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, and
a question that immediately concerns every
housekeeper, is: " Have the manufacturers
of gas heard of the fall in the price of coal !"
At this present writing, we can only answer
for the Boston Company. They have not.—
Henry Ward Beecher asked Park Benjamin
why he never owns to hear hint preach. Ben
jamin replied : " Why, Beecher, the fact is, I
have conscientious scruples against going to
places of amusement on Sunday."
A real gentleman never dresses in the ex
trews of fashion, bat avoids singularity in
person or habits. Is affablo with his equals,
pleasant and attentive to his inferiors. In
conversation he avoids hasty, ill.temperect or
insulting words. Never pries late other peo-
ple's affairs. Detests eaves-dropping as one
of the most disgraceful of crimes. Never
slanders an acquaintance. Does never, under
any circumstances, speak ill of a women.
In the revolutionary war a handsome young
patriot-officer, fleeing from his British pur—
suers, sought protection by entering • house
where there was nobody but a beautiful youn g
woman. She aided him in seeking for a hiding
place, but none could be found. — The enemy
were close at hand, and not a m3ment was Co
be lost. The young lady, wore the wide
spreading dress of the time, and a thought
occurred to her. Come under here and lie
close, she exclaimed, and he had barely time
to obey when the soldiers entered the door.
Bhe stood stern and still, while they sewhed
the house in vain for the fugitive. If Jeff.
Davis had been smart enough to hide himself
as that young officer did, perhaps be would
not at this time be the occupant of a casemate.
PORTRAIT OF A RIVRRIND GOTRRISOR.••••It is
an unprecedented thing, almost, if not quite,
for a clergyman to be made Governor of a
State. Parson Brownlow, however, has been
made Governor of Tennessee ; and a corres•

personally acquainted with - his Ezeslleaoy,
draws his pen and ink portrait that :

aen. 11. W. Slocum had a flattering recep—
tion at Syracuse, N..Y., last Thursday. Gen.
8., in response to • welcoming speech, paid
a grateful tribute to the common soldier:
He referred to an article in a Syracuse
newspaper, which, he said, "bad contrasted
the reception given to an officer with that
given to a private soldier. Both entered the
service from this county—both bad been
wounded in the same battle and returned
under similar circumstances—yet how differ
ent their receptions. The officer was met at
the depot by a large number of friends and
cordially greeted. The soldier was met by
an only sister, and by her_nlone accompanied
to his home. I presume there are not ten
men within reach of my voice who remember
the article to which I refer, and I am very
confident no one was more impressed by it
than myself. I felt it for I was the officer, to
whom the allusion was made, and I could not
but acknowledge the justice of the article.
Our private soldiers, unlike those composing .
the armies of other counttes, enter the service
generally from purely pstriotio motives. They
make equal sacrifices, andendure even great
ei hardships than their officers. In all those
traits of 'character which you delight to
honor, the soldier has claims upon you equal
at least to his officers.

"A young lady of this city, professing the
Catholic religion, recently became enamored
with a Protestant young gentlemtn. In order
to make things pleasant all around, the gen
man embraced the Catholic religion, but upon
applying to a priest to perform the marriage
ceremony, the latter refused, on the ground
that the young lady had stood as god. mother
at the gentleman's conversion--it being
against the doctrines of the Roman Catholic
Church to solemnize marriage between the
godmother and the god-child.

Dirty and greasy, and all forlorn ;

And my edges are frayed and tort.
The presses are running by day and by night,
Spawning me off, a thousand fold,
Though honest men call it a shameful sight
To see me pining for gold.

To keep " ins" in, and to keep 4 , outs " out,
And paper is cheaper than yellow ore, •

And it rests alone with me !

Commerce mourns by her empty till,
Progress weeps by Liberty's tomb—
