Tun RadicaLS tate Convention met in Phil
adelphia on Wedneiday, and re-nominated
Ilartrauft and Campbell for Auditor and Bur
veyor General; endorsed Grant for Presi
dent unanimously ; presented Curtin for
Vice President by a vote of 109 in his favor
to 22 for all others. The resolutions dodge
negro suffrage entirely ; call for impeachment,
and pledge the support of, the party to Con
gress ; oppose paying off the bonds In green
backs ; and Instruct the delegates to vote as
a unit at CiticaErn.
The Impeachment Rump have - ao far com
pleted their preliminary arrangements as to
organize their "high court" and fix upon
next Friday, the 13th, as-the day for the ar
raignment of the President. As the course of
truelove never did run smooth, these conspi
rators met with some unexpected difficulties
in organizing a court under the forms of de
cency out of the political tatter-demalions of
which it is composed. The Chief Justice,
put upon his go<sd_ behavior by the feartlil re-,
sponsibilitios of his position, has manifested'
a disposition to conduct' the business with at
least a show of Fairness ; but with his prover
bial aptitude . at whipping the devil around
the stump, he has contrived to let Ben Wade
swear himself in; member of the Court,
which is organized to swear Mr. Johnson ont
of office to make room for himself.
At 7 o'clock on Saturday evening the Ser
geant-at-Arms of the Senate called atl the
White louse to serve upon the President the
writ of summons in the impeachment., The
proceedings were very brief, and did not ap
-pear to give Mr. Johnson much concern.
All the counsel of the President are not yet
selected, but Judge Curtis, of Massachu
; setts; and David Dudley Field, of New York,
have been regularly retained, and rumor has
it that Judge Black and Attorney General
titanberty will be anionic the number.
The Democratic State Convention, on the
Iltir instant, was a great success in every' re
aspect. Perfect harmony characterized all its
proceedings, and its work has undoltdly
-met the approbation of the -party gene iy.
The nominations of lion. Charles E. Bole
for Auditor General, and Gen. Wellington H.'
. Ent for Surveyor General, will meet with
universal favor. Both are young -men, and
Mr. Boyle has distinguished himself as a
member of the Legislature from his native
county of Fayette. His example is a good
one for the young - men of Pennsylvania to
imitate. But a few years since he was a jour
neyman printer; at intervals he studied law,
was admitted to practice, and is now one of
the rising lawyers of Western Pennsylvania.
He has ability of a high order, is aline speak
er, and what is best, of all, is a- thoroughly
honest man. Gen. Enlis at present a prac
tising lawyer of Columbia county, of which
he is a native. Ile graduated at the
Law University at Albany, New York, a
' short time previous , to the outbreak of the
War, and had commenced the pnutice of law
in Bloomsburg, when the call
,to arms re
sounded through the land. Dropping 'his
books he shouldered a musket as a private in
the Sixth Pennsylvania Reserves. From
that time forth, for a period of more than
three years, he, participated in carving out
the brilliant war record of .that gallant regi
ment. Step by step he rose—from private
to lieutenant, from lieutenant to captain, from
captn to major, from major to lieutenant
colonel, from lieutenant colonel to colonel,
which latter position he honorably and
bravely filled at the muster out of the Re
series in 1864. • For his "distinguished servi
ces" he was breveted ii Brigadier General at
the close of the - war. Gen. Ent does not rest
alone upon his war record. - His legal and
business knowledge is fully equal to the dis
charge of the duties of the office for which
he hi.s been nominated.
With candidates like these, the Democrat
ic party can scarcely fail to come:out of the
campaign victorious. It behooves every
Democrat to hankie on his armor. The cam
paign can be commenced none too soon, and
we trust the County, Ward and Township
Committees will lay "out the work, soshat all
can put their shoulders to the wheel at once.
We want no laggards. Victory is within our
grasp, and it must not be lost by Supineness
or lethargy.
It is a fact . that Stanton declared that the
Tetiure-of-011ice bill, under which he holdi
his office, was unconstitutional!
It is a fact that GCneralsiktint end Sher
man urged Stanton to leave the Cabinet.
•It is a fact that Stanton remains in the
Cabinet out of personal not patriotic nintiveti.
It is a filet that the impeachment resolu
tions were caused by spite, and by no other
reason I .
It i 4 • fact that John Sherman, and other
Republican Senators,anid flO gentleman would
want to remain iathe Cabinet it' the Pred
dent did not want him to do ear
It is a fact that Sumner, Wade and-others
who are to try the President, have already
made up their verdict, and the trial %sill only
be a sham'!
flowerer nitwit Eastern joumals may talk
about negro suffrage and Neonstruction, the
great question which must be met and decid
ed in the nett Presidential campaign, will be
the proper adjustment of the national debt
and the reduction of taxes to iliclasses. The
negro surrage question was presented to the
people by the Republican party, and the pea.
pie have answered and decided it.. The pub•
lic debt and tezation arc presented by the
Democracy and Must be met in the coming
political struggle. Greenbacks for bonds will
be the rallying cry, and the candidate of the
Democracy for President• must stand upon
that platfoim.

The Democratic State Convention assem
bled in the Hall of the House of Representa
tives at Harristaxrg,at noon on Wednesday,
the' 4th of March, and was called to order by
Hon. Wm. A. Wallace, Chairman of the
Democratic State Central Committee. The
attendance was larger than at any previous
assemblage of the kind for years, it being
estimated that not less tlian,llve thousand
persons were attracted to Ilafrisburg by the .
occasion. The delegations fibre Crawford,
Northampton, Bradford, Warren, Susque
hanna,Sullivan, and a portion of tho Erie del
egates, were detained by the atom from
reaching Harrisburg until the Convention
bad adjourned, but every other portion of the
Commonwealth was fully represented. In
the absence of the regular delegates, Judge
Church sat in the Convention for Crawford
county, and Mr. Pennell, of Venango, for
Warren. In calling the Convention to order,
Mr. Wallace made the following admirable
address :
Gentkmen of the Convention :—The politi
cal events of the past year are full of reasons
for pride in your strength and confidence in
your future.
Success has crowned yottreorts and the
great principles of civil liberty and constitu
tional governMent have asserted their power
over the niledSof the people.
These great doctrines gave birth to our or
ganization, and when we are defeated in their
supeort, like the fabled Antaeus when burled
to his mother earth, we gather ,therefrom re
newed vigor and arise stronger and more de
termined than before.
The war and its attendant train of horrors
are remembered in sadness. Reason resumes
its thrtne, and designing men can no longer
attain their selfish ends by appeals to passion.
Christian charity now fills the place that rant
cor had usurped, and bate and bitterness are
sloWly passing away.
The Radical party have shown their in
capacity to govern the Republic, and the
mass of their own adherents recognize the
Famine and crime, military pule, insecurity
of life and property, the negro dominant, tilt(
white race oppressed, are the proofs of -this
in one, section, while grinding taxation, Un
certainty in business and financial 'distress
pervade the other.
It has given us "a broken and dissevered
Union ," corruption and extravagance in the
use of the public money, confusion in mone
tary affairs, and mismanagement of the im
mense revenues it haS wrung from the peo
It can unite upon no policy, but the per-
petuation of its own power. In the thad
spirit of faction, it seeks to strip the Execu
tive of his prerogative, and to ignore the
sacred Danclions of the Judiciary.
It tramples upon the organic law, reverses
our traditions, and brands as criminal every
attempt to stay its wild career.
Our form of government is the external
evidence of our capacity for self-tovernment,
for governments are what the people make
them. t
If we can govern ourselves, we can sustain
the government we love, and 'can safels
- to the force of ideas,to the march Of mind,
to public opinion, to crush with the bitllot
those who; through the forma of law, iiitack
the vital spirit of our institutions.
The people have ordained a free system of
laws and a complex yet simple organism
the people, the States and the Union. The
preservation of the rights of each of these is
essential to the existence of the whole.
To maintain these they have created the
three great co-ordinate branches of the gov
ernment ; : the Executive, the Legislative and
the Judicial. Puhlic good and private rights
demand the preservation of the integrity of
Sovereignty is in the people ;. the govern
ment is their creature, woven to protect their
liberties; its division into Independent
branches was of the very essence of the sys
tem ; the destruction of either is a stride ,to
ward tyranny. The organic law defines the
powers of each, and to that law each must be
The Constitution is the Supreme law. It
is the only evidence of powers granted by the
States and the people. It must be strictly
pursued and implicitly obeyed. To sustain
these truths more than tutee hundred thous
and nien, in conscious strength and quiet
dignity, await your call, and this day speak
through you for obedience to law; for the
Government of the Constitution and for the
Federal Union of the States.

The Committee on fiesolutions not being
ready to report, the Convention took a re
ceAs, when speeelteS were made by Iron. .G.
0. Deise, of Clinton, and Gen. Wm. MeCand
le, of Philadelphia. While the latter was
speaking; the Committee arrived, and report
ed, throtigh their Chairman, Judge Church,
the following:
Resolved, That the happiness of the people
and the preservation anti continuance of our
power as a Republic depends upon the per
petuity of the Unton and the preservation of
the Constitution ; and the prompt restoration
of each and all of the States to the enjoy
ment of their rights and functions in. the
Union is essential to -our progress, to our
prosperity, and to the protection of our liber
ties ; and radical legislation is the sole harri
er thereto. .
2. That the Constitution of the United
States is the Supreme law, It Is binding mmn
the people and upon , every department of the
Government, and it is the highest duty of
those In and out of official place to yield int.
Illicit obedience to all Itkprovhdons until Rim
changed in tiro manner provided thetehi, that
the recent attempts of the LegtslativetEmnch
of the - Government to usurp the power of
the Executive and to destroy the independ
ence of the Judiciary, are deliberate attacks
upon thelplainest provisions df the Constitu
tion, in utter violation of-the irit, and tend
ing to the overthrew of the Government it
3. That the Radicals in Congress have
wrung from the people enormous sums of
money which they hare - sqnundered IV reck
less eitra ; their system of taxation
is ill-devised, Incongruous and inequitable,
and they have mismanaged the large reve
nues thus obtained ; that rigid, economy in
every branch of the public service, a decrease
in the number of the officials, reduction in
the army and navy, and a reform in the mode
of the collection of the revenue are impera
tively demanded, and only by these means
can a reduction in the amount of taxation
now imposed on - the industrial and manufac
turing interests be attained and . the paytnent
of our indebtedn es s be assured.
' 4. That the Republican party h responsi
ble to the country for the delay in the resto
ration of the Southern States to their just
relations in the Union, and for the govern
meat of their people by military rule ; that
the purpose of These measures is to perpetu
ate Radical power through the votes of illit
erate negroes, and that these are the great
primary causes of the present prostrate con
dition of productive industry in all its de
5. That in enacting the Tenure-of-Office
Law, the Legislative and Executive branches
of the Government, each of itself, had the
right to judge of its constitutionality, and
that, in so exercising the right, the Executive
was but obeying that portion of his oath of
office which requires him to "preserve. Virti
tact and defend the Constitution of the United
States," and that it is the right of every
branch of the govertunent, and of every citi
zen to have questions itivolving the consti
tutionality of any law apeedily adjudgeil, by
the Supreme Court of the United States; and
of all the people to havt said decisions en
6. That the pending impeachment of the
President of the Unitelfitstes is a gross and
reckless abuse of power,. l -withoutjustifiable
cause, and intended fqr - the attainment of
party purposes, at the saerifiee of. the most
vital interests of the country.
T. That a return to aspecie paying basis at
the earliest practicablelimoment is essential
to the interests of the ptiple and the' pros
peritrof the nation.
8. "That the national febt should he paid
as rapidly as is consisteld with the ability of
the people and in accordance with the terms
of the laws upon which its, several loan§ are
9. That the five-twenty bonds anVthe
legal tender notes are component parts' of
the same financial system, and, until the Gor
ernment is able to redeem the legal tenders in
coin; the holders of those bonds should lie
required to receive legal tenders in pay
10. !That every species of property should
bear its fair proportiotrof taxation, and that
the exemptiorvor,Government Wads there
from is unjust and inequitable.
11.... That we recognize with emotions of the
deepest gratitude the efforts of the gallant
volunteer soldiery, who so freely took up
arms to defefid the flag and prevent the de
struction of the Union; and that we. de
nounce as an insult to them the efforts of the
Radicals to preYent a restoration of the
Union until negro supremacy is established
in certain States,' and negro 'equaliti" made
the rule in all.
'l2. That the natnrnlization of foreign born
citizens places them upon the same footing
as those born in the country, and 'it is the
duty of the Government to see that all citi
zens, naturalized or native, are protected in
their rights of life, liberty and property
abroad, as well home, and that, in the
view of the Democracy, the flag of the coun
try ought and must be made to protect all
Mr. Turner, of Luzerne, offered-the follow
ing resolution, which was agreed to:
&•aolred, That the delegates froip Pennsyl
vania to the National Convention, be and
they are hereby instructed to vote as a unit
for President and Vice President, as well as
upon the Platform.
The Convention, on the third ballot; nom
inated Hon. Chas. E. Boyle, of Fayette, for
Auditbr General. Col. Wellington 11. Ent,
of Columbia, was nominated for Surveyor
General on the second ballot. The following
is the vote for delegates at large to the Na
tional Convention :
G. W. Woolward,
Wm. Bigler, -
Am Packer,' •
Isaac E. theater, •
S. J. Randall, - -
John Latta, - -
J. P. Bart, '--
J. S. 3l'Calmont, -
tssrs. Ileister,. Packer, Woodward and
Bigler having received a majority of all the
votes, were declared duly elected delegates
at large. Hon. Wm. A. Wallace was re-elect
ed Chairman of the State Central Committee
for the ensuing year.
, It has been stated that Mr. -Pendletores
strength is confined exclusively to the West.
The following resolution adopted by the-
Democratic District Convention held at Ban
gor, Maine, on the 3d, together with the pro
ceedings heretofore published from various
places in New Hampshire, Connecticut, New
York, Maryland and elsewhere, will, ,we
think, convince the most skeptical that in
every respett he is a - national candidate.
Here is the resolve :
tffirsarek?, That in the lion. George H.
Pendleton, of Ohio, we recognize a states
man of profound wisdom, of unflinching in
tegrity, of devoted patriotism, and of high
and eminent
_abilities and genius; conse
crated - to the Constitution and the Union,
whose view on all the great questions of the
hour, and especially in regard to the. pay
ment of the public debt, the taxation of the
Government bonds, and a propel' and equal
system of taxation of all other property, meet
the wishes, convictions and necessities of the
people of this Congressional district. We,
therefore, hail, and sustain with-the heartiest
approbation, the action of the united Democ
racy of the great West and North-west, hi
nominating him for the Presidency of the
United States."
Delegates to the National Convention were
chosen and instructed for Pendleton. -
The town elections in New York have al-
most invariably been favorable to the Demo
,crass. Returns from thirty counties, ..or half
of the State, show a Democratic gain of
seventy-three Supervisors. over last spring.
The gains are almost entirely in the rural dis
tricts, where people are usually slowest to
change their' political opinions. Careful` fig
ures lead to the estimate that it there had
been a general election the State would have
gone Democratic- by one hundred thousand
majority. ' -
The election in New Hampshire has gone
in favor of the Radicals by a reduced major
ity on the largest vote ever cast in that State.
The Radical candidate-for Governor has less
than 3,000 majority, against 3,146 last year,
4,656 in 1866, and 6,128 in 18115., At this fate,
not many years will elapse until the Radical
preponderance is overthrown.- - • .
Local elections in Pennsylvania, New Jer
gey and New England show Democratic
gains in nearly every instance, though now
and then a Radical gain is reported.
WIIAT the people are determined to have
is a reduction of taxes to a point which will
yield revenue enough to pay the interest on
the National debt, and an economical gener-
al Government. With the war - ended three
years, the cost of it is as severely felt 'mitten
it was at
.its height, if, indeed, Its evils are
not more grievous. High taxes make up a
good proportion of the large prices paid for
every commodity, and the 'sooner they are
reduced to the most economical standard
consistent with national integrity to its credi-
tors, the better. Capital is timid, and the
demand for labor Is on the decline. The
waiting laborer must be fed, and fasting will,
in thii country, surely breed the discontent
noticed among the laborers in other lands,
where bread is scarce and work is not to be
bad. The speediest, way to put the labor of
the country in.motion is to reduce the taxes
which now cripple capital and keep ltout of
long engagements. The sooner Congress
takes the financial policy in hand the better.
A nw yeara ago Radicalism called it"die•
loyalty" to speak ill of tho President.

The little - mums created in, our party
ranks, within the last few weeks, has created
so much interest that it will, perhaps, be ex
pected of us, to furnish a statement of its con
eluding features.
Two of the delegates appointed by the
County Committee, started for Harrisburg at
5 o'clock on Monday allernoon, llte 2d
by way of' the Philadelphia oft Erie - R. R.
The road wag blocked up by the snow, but
the officers thought the train would work
through, and hope than confidenCe
the delegates started upon their journey.
Haeltime, Capt. Hutchinson found •it im
possible to leave Girard and telegraphed a
substitution to liarriSburg, authorizing Judge
Marvin to take his seat in .the .Converition.,
The train moved along very well, with three
engines in advance, until it came to Sheffield,
when one of the engines ran off the track.
This caused a detention of several hours.
When matters had been righted, the train
again went ahead to Kinzua Station, near
where it was ascertained. that three imams.'
fives attached to the Westward bound train
were last in the snow. The engines from the
Erie train were detached for • their relief,
leaving the Lira upon the Kinzua siding. In
undertaking to return, one of the . locomca
fives went off the track, and' it .was twenty•
six hours before the road was passable again.
The delegates h;d taken - a huge lunch along,
which they divided among the other passen,
gers for breakfast, and when it was found.
that the whole day would- have to be spent
at Kinzua the prospects looked ' doleful
enough, although all on board the train took
it as coolly as men could be expeeted to do
under the circumstances. About . three
o'clock, hunger began to get the upper hand,
`and it was suggested that a raid would have
to be made upon one of the three shanties
which constitute the city. The plan was no
sooner broached than adopted, and great was
the joy of nil on board when the messenger
reported that dinner would be ready at the
shanty of Mrs. Harrigan in fifteen minutes.
AN the appointed time, the. whole - party
formed a line, and betook themselves to the
hospitable mansion mentioned, where they
found a meal "fit to set before a king." What
it lacked in made up in quantity.
' -The principal courses were boiled pork,
without a streak of lean, and peftatoes, stacked
up on the plates almost as high as the ceiling.
It wasn't 'exactly such a meal as we would
have relished at home, but, situated es we
n ere, it tasted as good as tpson it Dobbin's
beat. We trust none of our readers may have
the misfortune to ever be detained a whole
day at Kinzua, but whenever they are, we
recommend the Harrigan House to their at
tention. They will find it roomy and airy—
the rooms being two in number, - and the air
coming in in healthful quantities through
inch wide gaps beneath the doors and win
dows—and thelandlady just as honest and
cheerful , hearted a specimen of an Irish
woman as they can meet in a week's travel.
She informed us that she had, several board
ers, besides a husband and:, two children.
We looked around where they could be
stowed, and came to the conclusion that it
must either be on the floor, roof, or outside.
One locality was apparently as comfortable
as the other. Yet, cheerlcSs as the sur
rounding-4 neye, this jolly little woman was
as happy as the birds, and alleged that she
felt perfectly contented. "We're barn%
rainy conveniences," she said, "but thin
we'se all very healthy. We. bavn't needed
the doctor, aur, in four years; not even when
the baby, bless its little soul, was born." The
train lay ut Kinzua till midnight Tuesday,
when it started again on its eastward way,
reacting - Kane about two o'clock. Here, by
the oidnesa of the landlord, we secured a
first-class meal, late as it was, but another
accident interfered with our progress: Just
as the train was ready to start, a tender of
one of the locomotives s naa aiscorered to he
off the track, which occasioned sa., detention
of five or six hours. From Kane everything
went smoothly until near Renova, when an
other obstacle interfered to cause a detention
of severat hours. The upshot of all these
delays was, that the delegates did not reach
Harrisburg till midnight of Wednesday, just
as the Convention adjourned. Some half a
dozen from the Northern tier of counties, who
got on board at Williamsport, were in the
same delightful fix. All took it good natured
ly, and if the members of the Convention
had a . happier time,we envy them the privi
lege. •
The delegates appOinted by the• Monday
evening meeting started on Tuesday morn
ing, by way of the Pittsburgh and Pennsyj
vania roads, and were fortunate-enough to
get through on time, reaching Harrisburg on
Wednesday morning. • From daylight to
noon they pushed their claims in a
manner, and in the absence of the otherdele
-gates, succeeded in creating considerable
feeling in their favor. Judge Marvin took
his seat as . substitute for Capt. Hutchinson,
and the contestants promptly put in a de
mand for their seats, the names of the dele
gates appointed by the Col t Committee hav
ing been regularly placed on the rolls of the
-Convention. A committee on contested
seats was appointed, before whom each side
was summoned to app. ar. Messrs. Scott,
Thompson, Sloan and Camplinusen made
speeches, and were replied to by Judge Mar
vin. The Committee sat about half an hour,
and unanimously reported the following. re
solution, which was adopted by the Conven
tion without a dissenting voice :
"Rceo{red, That Benjamin Whitman, Sena
torial, Capt. Hutchinson and W, t W. Lyle,
Representative delegates, are duly yintitied to
seats from Erie county."
At seven o'clock, the Convention met for
an evening session, and, it being ascertained
that the missing delegates could not be pres
ent, Oil Judge Marvin's motion, B. P. Sloan
was admitted . as a substitute for Benrn
Whitman, and E. Camphausen as a aubsti:-
lute for W. W. Lyle. These gentlemen par
ticipated in all the subsequent proceedings of
the Convention, helping to select candidates,
and choose the delegates to the National
Convention. When the choice by districts
was made, W. L. Scott and Byron D. Ham
lin were selected as Congressional delegates
to the New. York Convention, and Wm. A.
Galbraith as elector for the 19th district.
This arrangement was the result of a compro
ndse, proposed by the delegates from the
other counties of the district, for the sake of
harmonizing the difficulties in Erie county.
And thus ends this "strange, eventful his
tory," and may we never be called upon to
detail another of Its kind. The compromise
tigreed upon gives general andifaction,and the
confident anticipations of a "split," which
the Radical organs have been gloating over,
and doing so much to encourage, are doomed
to disappointment. The rank and file of the
party, from one end .of , the county to the
other, refuse to permit a local squabble to
interfere.with the unity of the organization,
and will indignantly rebuke any attempt to
perpetuate the feud, let it - come from what
quarter it may.

WE are taxed about one hundred and fifty
millions a year in order to pay interet on the
war debt ! If this interest were to be paid in
greenbacks—which sire have to take as mon
ey—we would be free of this tax! If we
have to take 'greenbacks in place . of gold,
'why should not the
take the
same'? Why does not the Government print
off some more greenbacks and pay bondliold

Tab Philadelphia Silinlay Transcript, au
original Grant 'paper; in speaking of the
General, says he has "forfeited all claim to
respect as a gentleman, or 'confidence as a
soldier," and that "he has suffered his lust for
offige to override his manhood," and further
bore says, "a candidate who commences his
career in deceit will to find shame if

IN A certain school district in New
Hampshire there; is a debt of shout 10,000, to
be apportioned among sixty voters. One
man who is worth $40,0* if. assessed $66,
while another worth a few,thousand and do
ing a small manufacturing businiiss, is as
sessed s'34n; and thus it is through the diti;

all the benefits, withoUt sharing the burdens.
So it is everywhere.
Pion. Washington to Lincoln,every pre4i

such a course right and proper. No-one ever

for Secretary of War or Postmaster General.
Yet now, Andrew Johnson is impeached for,
doing' this very act, '

Is iruz Legislature lately, John. Hickman,
a Radical member from Chester county, pre.
seated a project he had much, at heart—ta
establish a line of steamers from the United
States to the black Republic of Liberia, in
Africa. Hickman Was of opinion that such
a line would repay the stockhidderts,, and pa.
thetically implored his fellow members to
vote for it. A Democratic mombei rose, and
in a pathetic voice,. said, he had an amend•.
meat to offer to 31f. Hickman's bill to. estab ,
lislt that line of steamers to Liberia, and
read it at followl--"That every steamer
should carry• from the• United States to
said Liberia a cargo of neg,roea." Roars of
laughter followed all over the House, and
John sat down quite ehopfallen. -
A RADICAL pirijker says ' 4 the public debt
must be paid," hut it insists the ProPosittets
to pay it in greenbacks, or the payment of it
in greenbacks, is*not a payment. Why nc ?
Does it prbpose thdttliere shall be one kind
