It is a curious Act, that has not receiv

that while we are'shipping each week mil

sending us grain'in return. A few yeats
ago the case was the exact opposite—we
shipping Europe grain, and she furnish
ing us gold to pay forit.
During the three weeks ending with
Saturday, June 2d, the officially declared
exports of gold from New" York were
_ rather oy.etthan under $25,000,000. Dur
ing the last month, the premium on gold
has pretty Steadily appreciated—begin

grave facts. They are fa ll of admonition.

such a draft upon us for coin would have
dimiaishiSl all current values from 10 to
25 per cent., causing very general embar
rassment if not absolute stagnation. As
It is, the result is a sudden derangement
of values, leas obviously disastrous only

Hon. Geo. V. LAWRENCE, Ladled mem
her of Congretiei from the Washington dis
trict of this State, has written a letter in
which he pronounces Hiester Clymer "a
personal friend and an honest man." Of
how many candidates for office in these
days would a political opponent be willing
thus to write ? "He is an honest man," l
is the unanimous expression of every
leading Republican, when speaking of Mr.
Clymer.: They denounce .his political
course, they oppose his election, and re
vile the perty with which he is connected,
but none of them attempt to conceal their
respect for. his gentlemanly qualities and
the purity of hhi character. Think of it,
voters of Pennsylvania,! If you elect
Hiester Clymer for your 'next Governor,
by the admissions of his fiercest political
foes, you, will have chosen a gentleman
and an honest man. In the midst of the
corruption which everywhere stares us in
the face, and sickens all wire love their
country, is not such a consummation one
eminently worth effecting ? _
Mama Cx.ntsa declared the war for
the Union an unholy and an unjust cru
sade on thepersonal rights and local in
stitutions o e people of the South.—
The above is a fair specimen
. Of the
mode in which our political opponents are
conductin4 the campaign. Knowing they
can find nothing in Mr. Clymer's person
al character to make party capital out of,
they have sat to wor at deliberately dis
torting and falsifying - his political *ord.
The sentiment above put into his mouth,
we pronounce untrue from beginning to
end. Mr. Clymer never, by word or deed,
placed any obstacle in the way of a speedy
and successful prosecution of the war ,
He has ever been unalterably opposed to
a dissolution of the Union. He denounced
the siwassion of the South at all times
and on all occasions, and when the war
broke out was one of the first to give hi s
aid in faior of the Government.. In his
entire publio career, we defy any one to
point his finger to a solitary expression of
our candidate which can possibly be con
strued into an sot of disloyalty, while hun
dreds of instances can be'cited to prove
his lore of country.
The movement of the Radical politi
clans to get the-soldiers' convention, soon
to meet in Pittsburgh, to endorse the
\ nomination of Gen. Geary, is not 'meeting
with the harmonious success anticipated
by its managers. Called under the guise
of purely patriotic motives, its real object
soon became generally understood, - and iri
nearly 4very county where meeting* have
been held to select delegates, the Demo
ratiol soldiers have purposely refrained
rout attending them. In others, howev
er, 'they resolved t 45,) spoil the Radical
game by a flank - movement, and, turning
out in their Strength, have selected Dem
ocratic delegates to the Pittsburgh God•
vention, very much to the disgust and
consternation of the Geary leaders. In
York, Cumberland and Perry, Democrat
io delegates have been chosen, with in
structions to support the election of Mr.
. Clymer, and sustain the policy of the
President. Should the same results attend
the efforts of the Radicals in, other coun
ties, their clap-trap convention at Pitts
burgh may become es much of an ele
phant upon their hands as it was expected
to bell bug-a-boo to Democrats.
We know not how it may be with the
gallant men of our army and navy else-
Where, but here in Erie the rank and file
are nearly all in favor of the President
and opposed to negro suffrage. If an or
gailisationof soldiers and sailors were to
be established to sustain Mr. Clymer's
election, it would shortly number two-
thirds of all the brave men who fought
in the late war. While this is true of the
privates and petty officers, it does not ap
ply' to those who held high rank in the
service. The innumerable host of col°.
nels, captains, to., most of whom owed
their titles to their political connections,
sod two-thirds of whom are. looking for
further fevers at the hands of their party
• friends, generally go for Geary. But their
influence .is so exceedingly limited that
they will be able to control comparatively
few votes.

A Oorreiptiriaihrer 4 tirkslin ilferrO the I
London Times sends to that paper, under
date of the 10th April, a lengthy report
of an interview he had with the President,
on the day previous. He was fortunate
enough to Call upon Mr. Johnson at a
time when no other visitors happened to
requires his attention, ancrthns got as op
portunity of conversing with him n:ire
freely and agreeably than most persons
who have not official business to transact
are able to do: Tho correspondent being
desirous of hearing from the Presidents
own lips a statement of-the motives whit*
induce his policy, succeeded in confin
ing theoonversation mainly to topics con
nected with the war and the important
events 'which have.grown out of it. He
says Mr. Johnson talked.with a , freedom
and candor which was gratifying to listen
to, and seemed to be perfectly familiar
with every point bearing upon our present'
political difficulties. The views 'thus giv
enhaving been uttered to the ordinary
tone of social familiarity, and without the
formality necessary state documents,
more nearly express, perhaps, the Presi
dent's feelings upon the subjects of pub
lic interest to which they refer than any
thing which has before appeared in print.
The President first adverted to thepcon
dition in which he found tho country on
his accession to office, and pointed 'out
that ever since that time the radical party,
which now . has the control over Congress,
had been preparing for -the issue . forced
upon him. Their object was manifest, and
it was one which from their point of,.view,
they could scarcely be blamed for pursu- -
ing so eagerly. They knew perfactly well
that when the South came back into Con,-
grecs their day of power would be over—
the Southern representatives would stand
as a unit they would probably fall into
alliance again with the Democratic party,
the old issues of Slavery and Stato sover
eignty would be dead and bnried,lind the
party which now ruled would be stripped
of its power. ,Their talk about philan
thropy and benevolence to the negro
core than a desire to work
upon the feelings of the North, so that,
they might be ena led to carry everything
their own way. I was a renewal of an
old conflict. The two sections of the
country were ready to go to war before
the rebellion broke out—the one to pre
serve slayery, the other •to deatioy it.—
Each aide was willing to sacrifice the Gov
ernment in order to gain its object. The
South struck first ; the rebellion was,sub
duedst the Southern end of the line, and
now it is swinging round to the other end.
"These men," continued the President,—
and he.alwaya used these words to denote
the Radical party,—"are almost ready to
go into rebellion - again rather than have
their supremacy destroyed by the re-intro
duction of the South. They know nothing
practically of the real state of the South.
The very man who had drawn up the
Civil Rights Bill—what are his means of
judging? I left him in the Senate during
the war, and went oat to Tennessee and
saw it all, and bore my share 'of the
troubles. He stopped at home; and now
endeavors to make his theories- square in
to the event* of the war, and legislate on
ideas which Ile has never. put to the test."
The President then went on to Speak of
slavery and the. negro. He had been
brought up, he said, under the very shad
ow of the institution of slavery. Ile had
bOught and owned slaves, but still he had
always been for abolighing slavery upon
any basis which could be adopted with
safety to the country. When it came to
the question whether slavery should be
abolished or the Government broken up,
he never had a doubt as to the course he
ought to pursue. Ile •decided to - give up
slavery, and he abided by that decision.—
But the South now would treat the negro
with greater kindness than the North, if
it were left alone and not exasperated.—
"They -talk of justice to the negro," con
tinued the President. * " Goal knows my
heart yearns toward him when 'I think of at
cad which these men.ctre preparing for Aim I
see that end clearly enough, they are pav
ing the way for a conflict of races. When
that occurs we all_knnw lintv it will. fare
with the negro. How 'h as such a contest
always ended t When the time cornea
there will be no struggle. The result will
be decided without that. Now, then,
what do we find ? The very thing which
we said these Southern States could never
do, which we fought these four years to
prevent them doing, these men affirm
that they have actually done—namely,
been out of the • Union. The_Southern
States are ready to come back upon our
terms, take loyal oaths, and acknowledge
their allegiance, but these men say they
shall not. Why, if they had offered to
come back, or any of them, during the
rebellion, should we have turned them
away,on the that they had placed
themselves out of the Union? Mr. Lin
coln offered to receive the whole legialam
ture of Richmond—a rebel legislature—
and would have welcomed them with open
arms. Would he have refused to receive
these States, now that they have fully
submitted ?"
Mr. Johnson then enla4ed with con
siderable detail upon the operations of the
Freedmen's Bureau, and said that its ma.
chinery was now being used to get negroes
conveyed from the North back to the
South by the very men who were assert.
log that the lives of the freedmen were
not safe in the South. They had hired or
bought hands, they wanted labor, and
they got their negroes transported at the
expense of the Federal governmer.t. The
Freedmen's Bureau compelled the negroes
to go, or they stopped their subsistence al.
lowances. It was little better than an
other form of slavery, only that it was
solely Conducted by Abolitionists; foil&
Freedmen's Bureau would not assist a
Southern man in getting negroes from the
North, where many thousands of them
have taken "refuge during • the war. A
gentleman from Falkland county, Virgi
nia, had been to him, the President said,
only a few days ago, spying that he had
sent 300 negroes to the District (of Co
lumbia) for security during the war. He
now wished to hire them, but the FreM.
then's Bureau interposed obstacles, and
would give no help in transporting them,
whereas the Government railroads were
placed at the service of other speculators.
In all that he said it was evident that the
President approved some plan for protect
ing the negro and giving him succor; but
that he admitted the .administration of
the Freedmen's Bureau was not alt that
the true object for which it was founded.
Fusing from this subject, the President
said that the Radical party In Congress
talked to the people as if they had to fear
some act of opposition on the part of the
Executive because the Civil Rights Bill
tulbeen. vetoed. the veto power."

law of his State., Then the case will be
brought to the Stipremo Court, and the
people will soon sec who was right— Con
greis,ln insisting upon baiting it or I in
endeavoring to dissuade diem from R."—
Here, again, the President distitiguished
between the principle on which the bill is
professedly based and the bill itself: the
former he was anxious to see (mined out,
but the means proposed he Considered ob
jectionable and hazardous. "Congress,"
the President further , mid, '• represents

these words with a smile—"we think this

QUM ? —Can it be possible that An
drew, G. l. Curtin, Governor of Pennsylva
nia, is withholding his signature from the
Bill for'the Disfranchisement of Deserters,
with the full knowledge that by so doing
he gives twenty thousand Copperhead
votes to Hiester Clymer, and neutralizes
that number for the Republican nominee,
Gen. Geary? •Wo trust not.—Cratqford
Journal. ,
Such are the opinions of every loyal
newspaper, men, women and children in
Pennsylvania, and yet the Governor, who
was elected by them, has turned, so far, a
deaf ear to their interesta. We hear that
Senator Wallace, the Copperhead chair.
man of the committee, can give. a reason
why he offered a resolution conlpliment
inggovernor Curtin, at ,the close of the
seasio l .
Time will develop the reason why
STheads compliment a professed loy
iovernor.—Lfarrisburg Tetlie-graph.
This joint attack of two ardent Repub
lican papers upon Gov. Curtin is a striking
evidence of the intolerance of the Radi
cal leaders. The act in clue-41°n is one
upon which wide and honest differences
of opinion exist, and it is well known that
a case involving its constitutionality is
now peksding in the Supreme Court. The
Governor was anxious that the result of
this suit should be ascertained before af
fixing lsis signature to the bill of the Leg
islatures, in order that if the original Act
of Congress was pronounced 'invalid, he
might not be placed in the ridiculous
plight of signing an unconstitutional
measure. This simple act of conscien
tious duty has called down upon him the
sneers and contempt of every Radical pa
per In the State. They have forgotten in
an instant his life-long enmity to the
Democracy, his partizan zeal, and the ap
plause they have bestowed upon hesitation acts ;
and remembering only that his hesitation
was likely to enure against their party
schemes, have fallen upon him with as
little scruple as if ha were one of the worst
of Ccipperheads.
We regret to find that the attacks of
his political friends have had their intend
ed effect upon the mind of our timid ifx
ecutive. After publicly announcing that
he would not approve the bill unless it
was pronounced constitutional by the Su
preme Court, he has at length basely
yielded to the pressure of his political al
lies, and on Monday attached his signa
ture tck the document. The excuse given
for this course—that the Supreme Court
adjourned without announcing its deci:
sion—is too weak to deceive any but the
most shallow; and the whole tenor of Gov.
Curtin's conduct on the subject is a fresh
confirmation of the impression which has
gained general currency, that although by
nature he may be disposed to do right, he
is a mere puppet in the hands of snore
adroit politicians, who take advantage of
his cowardice to brow-beat him into an
endorsement of party acts which at heart
he knows to be wrong and dangerous.
On Thursday evening, two weeks ago,
Hon. Hiester Clymer, our candidate for
Governor, paid a visit to the city of Potts
ville, Schuylkill county, on professional
business. His presence in the place soon
bectuniz-generally known, and the citizens,
without distinction of
. party, turned out
in immense numbers to give him a sere
nade. In response to their repeated calls,
he appeared on the balcony of the hotel
where he was stopping, , and delivered the
following beautiful speech. Like all Mr.
Clymer's oratorical eflorts,-it is singularly
appropriate and interesting :
A Sojourner for a few days, engaged in
the trial of a cause in your C ourts, I ieed

necessary for me - to return. to my native
county, I did so with regret which has
been 'unceasing.' I left here perrop4l

present, and their ad in the future. .To

You do not expect meat this time nor
do I intend to address you upeti4o,eln-‘
eral questions agitating the public mind:
-It would be improper for many reasons;
some future opportunity will, I trust, be
affeded me to do so ; and yet I may not
refrain to dwell one moment upon a sub:
ject of such absorbing and paramount 'in
terest that it may not be avoided.
It cannot he, any friends, that the'civil
war just ended was waged to .dismember
the sacred Union of these States, to up
root and destroy the doctrine that taxa
tion and representation are inseparable
to enfranchise four millions of tiegrotitirid
enslave eight millions of whits mad ;and!
to reduce to the condition of conquered ,
provinces eleven sovereign States! Yet
such are claimed to be its legitimate re
sults by, many. If' they abonK prove to
be so, if' fanaticism and latent treason
slkirld overpower patriotism and true
st esmanship, and if in obedience to the
demoniac rage of those whom-the Presi
dent has branded traitors, it be attempted
to govern the Southern &striate Hungary
is governed by Austria, Poland by Husain,
and Ireland by England, who may deny
that the blood spilt and treasure expend
ed have been in vain ? But these are not,
and by the aid of the good and true of all
parties, shall not be its results. A restored.
and perfect Union, arrintact and enforced,
Constitution, shall be the priceless and
enduring rewards of the trials and blood
shed of our civil strife.
To aid in securing these remits, to sus
tain all men in every position whose enir-'
gies are devoted tc these ends, is the high
est duty of the patriotic citizen at this
_hour, and for the reason that do so is no
partizan effort, I have referred tb it upon
this ocension dedicated to the interchange
of kindly personal civilities, which are nbt
to be marred by the expression of senti
ments tdistasteful to any one who hears
me. • t •
Wishing you, one and all, health and
happiness, I bid you good night.
The accusation against the Southern
leaders is, not that they retro to submit
to the decision of that arbitrament of
arms which they invited, but that they do
not repent; confess and Ketract their opin
Leo was beaten by Grant, and Johnson's
surrender to Sherman, closed the *hopes
of the South. Therefore; it is argued, the
scholarsiand statesmen of the South must
not only yield to the decision, but must
publicly recant all, their form e r- interpre
tations of the Constitution, must abandon'
the school of Jefferson for that of Adams,
nay, must go infinitely further than Ham-,
ilton or Adams, or the most ultra Feder i al.•
ist of the past, and embrace the consolida
tion doctrines of a Sumner, and assent to
the dictation of Stevens, and his omnipo
tent Congressional Directory. •
But' this is the intolerance of bighted
minds ! The South accepts 'the decision,
and will not appeal from it. But the in
dividhal minds do not, and cannot assent
to the arguments of the Consolidationists.
The' Richmond Enquirer illustrates the
position thus aptly :
It was in the spirit referred to, that the
South accepted the verdict of the war.—
Daniel Webster, atter the unmiatakable
verdict of the people against a United
States Bank, did not feel called upon to
admit that the averment was against such
an institution, but only that the decision
was. He did not concede that such a bank
was unconstitutional, but only that the
idea was "obsolete!' Without confessing
that he had struggled in behalf of a cor
rupt and unconstitutional monstrosity, as
its opponents averred, he simply submit
ted in good faith to the decision against
him. lt,was thus that the Southern States
returned to their duties in the Union ;
with the same acceptance of the rerdiCt
of the war, and the same purpose to dis
charge their duties in conformity with it.
The very hest thing that can be done
for the country as a whole, and for the
States, North and South. is to treat the
late war as if it had been a political cam
paign, and to tecord the result and pass
on. • This would be both expedient and
* * •
The very heroism and
deliotion which made the Southern peo
pie illtotrious during the war, are the best
guarantees which could be gives that their
present declarations may ba confided in.
They should be specially trusted for what,
by a strange, perversion, is specially con
demned—a courageous devotion to what
they believed to be right. It is only the
men who dissembled, that are unfit to be
WENDELL Punt.tes, with all his faults, is
deserving of credit for one trait, and that
is frankness. He generally says just what
he thinks, regardless whether it strikes
friend or foe. His description of the char
acter,of the Republican party, for exam
ple, is a master-piece of candor and faith
tulnesa to nature :
"The Republican party to day seeks
only to save its own life. God grant that
they may lose it. Social equality follows
irreaiatably political equality ; and equal
ity of manhood, without distinction of
color, is the last lesson of the war. The
nation has one salvation, and one only,
and that is to ignore race. The President
avows at least an intelligible, plan—he
has a purpose. The Republicans go to the
people in deceit and hypocrisy, with their
faces masked and their convictions hid.
Thope to God they will be defeated."
Tun 'people are expected by the Presi
dent to sustain the Johnson policy, to or
ganize Johnson clubs, add to form a John
son party in opposition to the Radical
Disunionista.They, in return, expect him
to surround hithself with a Johpson Cabi
net. The President is all. Tight, and Abe

Mr. Wocdruff. .The "old Gasette," which
used to be the respectable organ of its party
and of its candidates after nomination, hes sunk
down to-the position of tke'ersan of a clique,
composed chiefly of its owner's relatives, in.
tent only upon foisting themselves upon the
party. is it not strange that a man so well
known as John "IL Walker should require a
half column lender in the Gazette to make
him acceptable to the small clique who still
continue to be influenced by that paper I If
we, asp party, had a reasonable chance of
success with such an ablellawiirolfed polish
ed, gentleman 'as Benjamin grant; Esq., it
would be of little concern to as who might be
the needs.. of the Republicans, but at the
matter now !tends, I feel (hat it is a matter
of deep interest to all. Yours, ito.,
