The latest corrected returns from New
Hampshire make the majority for Harriman
2,530. The, House of Representatives will
probably show 193 Republicans and 138 Dem
ocrats. The Lower House of the Legisla
ture stood in 1867, 203 Radicals t 0.128 Dem
ocrats ; Radical majority, 75. The vote of
New Hampshire for the three preceding years
was as follows
. .
The Biddeford (Me.) Democrat figures up
the Democratic_ gains in the recent election_
in that State. In Biddeford the Democratic
gain is 105 over last `ear; in Saco It is 103;
in Kennebunkport it is 61 ; inAugust4l, it is
.500; in Portland it'is 900; in Windham it is
SO ; in Gorham it is 154; in Lincoln iris 80;
In Lewiston it is 460.. In most of the other
towns the gains have been heavy.
The town elections.held in New York all
tell one story—overwhelming Democratic
gains as compared with last fall, when the
Radicals were ' everywhere beaten. With
these facts before us, it is safe to say that
were a Presidential election to be. held now
the Democrats would carry the State . by a
hundred thousand majority. .
The Democracy of Orange, New Jersey,
carried the city by a majority of 245, making
a large gain and sweeping everything.
Brunswick, in the same State, elects the
Democratic ticket by 400 majority—a gain of
23 per cent. In Salem, the Democratic gain
is 72. The Democracy of Bridgeton made.
a=gain of 112 over last spring.
At the election in Hollidaysburgh, Pa., tOr
borough officers, the Democratic candidates
were elected by a majority of 03, being a gain
of 40 over the vote of last falL The election
at Tyrone shows a Democratic gain of twen
ty-two over last year: In Pike county, the
Democrats have increased majorities in
every district. The gains are large, not only
over the gubernational election of 1860,
butM7er the late . contest for Judges of the
Supreme Conn. The municipal election ip
Lock Haven resulted , in a most gratifying
victory to the Democracy: Every' ward has
been swept, not It single Radical candidate
being elected. In the' Weit Ward the .De
mocracy have made astonishing gains and
completely turned the tables. In Pine Creek
and Elderton townships, Armstrong 'county,
the Democratic gain is 40 over last fall.
The telegraph, heralded a great Radical
triumph in Memphis. The papers of that
city, giving the classified vote of the various
wards,.show that of a total vote of 7,154, only
2,838 were whites: The negroes outnumber
the whites nearly two io one—by a major
ity of 1,478. Of the 2,838 whites, six-sev
enths—a majority 2,o22—voted the Conserva
tive ticket. Of the 4,316 blacks, Torty-six
forty-seventh—a majority of 4,l3o—Voted the
Radical ticket. This is a striking evidence
of the result of negro domination. •
Westfield, Mass., went Democratic last
week by 130 majority, being the first victory
for our party hi that town for nine years.
We, the people of the United States; pon
dering tfie events of the last three years—our
interests neglected, our rights violated, our
most sacred instincts outraged by the party
in power—by virtue of-our immortal ,sover
eignty, in the Dante of Ike Constitution to
• which we all owe fealty, in the behalf of that
liberty which has never yet quite perished
from off the - face of the earth, and by the au
thority inherent in free institutions, do now
set forth the following charges ; and set them
forth, pot as quibbling and wordy lawyers,
but broadly- and in the general, as befits mas
ters speaking to their servants, to wit
First—We charge Thaddeus Stevens and
his following with incompetency, incoheren
cy, failure ; in that, having exercised for
three years all posSible poWers, they have ac
complished nothing, save only this—that in
the month of March, 1868, the country is
more divided, its energy more depressed, its
business more halting,its finances and revenue
policy, more disordered than each and. all of
them were in the mondi of April, 10 , 3.
- Second—We charge the said parties with
having, throughout these months and years,
almost' without exception, subordinated the
essential and permanent interests of the whole
people to the temporary exigencies (real or
supposed) of _whatls at best but a faction of
Third—We charge the said parties with
• having, as political foot-pads, robbed the ex
ecutive fimction of its most important attri
butes, conferring, or pretending to confer,
them on a stalking horse unknown to our
frame of. Government, namely, a General-in-
Fourth—Not content with degradition of
the person for the time being invested With
the Presidential authority, we charge the said
parties with the intention and effort to reduce
the position itself to a level with that of
King of Great Britain, that is to say to an in
ert and empty title.
Fifth—Lastly, we charge the said parties
with having attempted intimidation of the
tribunal before which the official repreienta
live of the people's majesty is to be tried.
For all and each of which high crimes and
misdemeanors we cite the said parties r ind
all their abettors to appear before the High
Court of the. People on the 3d day of Novem
ber next, then to listen to our verdict—Guil
ty, or Not. Guilty. -
Wherever our candidates for Auditor and
Surveyor General are known, their personal
qualities are unequivocally endorsed by the
press of both parties. Mr. Royle, from hav
ing served two years in the .Legislature, has
a reputation more generally familiar than
Gen. 'Ent, and of hirrt_the Radical press speak
in terms of the most unlimited praise. As a
sample, we quote front the Harrisburg State
Guard :
"Mr. Charles E. Boyle, of Fayette county,
the Democratic nominee for Auditor General,
is among the extreme men of the faction to
which he belongs, though it cannot be denied
that he is a man of ability, that he is person
ally honest, and if elected Auditor General,
would make .13 competent officer."
The Meadville Republican, whose editor,
Mr. White, was a neighbor and intimate ac
quaintance of Mr. Boyle's, thus bears testi
mony to his qualifications for the
which he has been nominated:
"The nomination by the Democracy of
Hon. Charles E. Boyle for Auditor Geiaeral,
is 'one of the most creditable made by that
party in many years. Mr. Boyle is a resident
of Fayette county, was formerly editor of the
Genius of Liberty, at Uniontown, and for the
past two years has been a member of the
lower House at Harrisburg. lie is a gentle
man of pleasing manners, amiable" and affa
ble, and hts record as n legislator has been
t ree from any taint of COMIptIATI so far as we
have observed it. Ile is really too good a
man to be the candidate of a .tuai
THE Radicals have made mote history
since they have had charge of the govern
ment than any other party since the old Rev
olutionary chaps who kicked up a row about
tea tax. They have had a civil war, a
martyr, piled up the biggest National debt
ever heard of, and now they are prepared to
wind up with impeachment and revolution.
They are a lively party now, say what you
will, anti-as long as the people will stand the
pease, they will give them plenty of ex
it iitment for their Mbney.
The Senate Chamber was crowded from
top to bottom on Friday of last week, with
men and women, anxious to witness the
opening ceremonies of the impeachment trial.
At one o'clock, the Chief Justice took the
presiding officer's chair, and, after some un
important preliminary business . , the managers
and members of the House were admitted to
seats in the Chamber. The counsel for the
President occupied a table on the right of
the Chief Justice and opposite to the mana
gers, who were seated on the left, Mr. John
son,ltimself, not being in attendance. Mr.
Stanbery arose and produced a paper, from
which he impressively read, amid the pro
foundest silence, the following :
"In the matter of the impeachment of An
drew Johnson, President of the United States,
Henry Stanbery. Benjamin R. Curtis, Jere
miah S. Black, William M. Everts, and Thos.
R. Nelson, of counsel for the respondent,
move the court for an allowance of forty
days for the preparation of the answer to the
articles of impeachment, and in support of
the motion - peke the following professional
statement :
• 401
"The articles are eleven in number, in
voicing many questions of law and fact We
have, during the limited time and opportuni
ty offered us,considered as far as possible the
field of investigation which must be explored
in the preparation of the answer; and the
conclusion at which we have arrived is that,
with the utmost diligence, the time we have
asked is reasonable and necessary. - The Pre
cedents as to time for answer upon impeach
ment before the Senate to which we have
had opportunity to refer are those of Judge
Chase and Judge Peck.
"In the case of Judge Chase time was al
lowed from the 3d of January until the 11th
of February next succeeding, to put in his
answer, a period of thirty-two days, - but in
this case there was but a single article.
"Judge Peck asked fiir time from the 10th
- to the 23th. of May, to put in his answer, and
it was granted. It appears. that Judge Peck
had been long cognizant of the ground laid
for his impeachment, and had been present
before the committee of the House upon the
examination of the witnesses, and had been
permitted by the House of Representatives to
present to that body an elaborate answer to
the charges.
.."It is apparent thatthe President Is fairly
entitled to more time - than was allowed -in
either of the foregoing cases. It is proper to
add that the respondents in these cases were
lawyers fully capable of preparing their own
answers, and that no pressing official duties
interfered with their attention to that busi
ness. Whereas, the President, not being a
lawyer, must rely on his counsel the chargo;
involve his acts, relations, and intentions, as
-to all which his counsel must be fully ad
vised upon consultation with him, step by
step, in the preparation of his defence.
"It is seldom that a case requires such con
stant communication between client and
counsel as this, and yet such communication
can only be bad at such intervals as are al
lowed to the President from the usual hciiirs
that must be devoted to his high official du
"We further beg leave to suggest- for the
consideration of this honorable court, that as
counsel, careful as well of their own reputa
tion as of the interests of 'their client, in a
case of such magnitude as this, so out of
the ordinary range of professional experi
ence, where so much responsibility is felt,
they submit to the candid consideration of
the court that they have a right to asic for
themselves such. opportunity to discharge
their duty as seems to theta to be absolutely
necessary. "HaairrY SUMMERY,
"Bzniasrm IL CURTIS,
"WILLIAM M. Evan's,

"Counsel for Respondent. '
"Matto' 13, 1868."
The eyes of all in the Chamber Were
turned to the managers as Mr. Stanbery took
his seat. Mr. Bingham, one of the House
managers, arose and developed at once the
startling tactics and indecent haste of the
prosecution, by announcing that it was ex
pected that under the , eighth rule of those
adopted by the court the. President must
file his answer this day unless otherwise
ordered. This assertion created the most
intense surprise to :the President's counsel,
and, in fact, seemingly to every one who
heard it made. He. insisted that if the Presi
dent had failed to answer, as in fact he had,
according to his construction of the rule; the
trial would have to go on just as if a plea of
"not guilty" had been entered; and the ac
cused having appeared the effect is the same.
A lengthy debate then took place between
Judge Curtis and Mr. Stanbery on the Pres
ident's•side, and Messrs. Wilson and Bing
ham on that of the House, involying sub-
stantially the same points as above given.
Finally, the Senate retired to consult over
the matter, and on its return, at 4 o'clock,
the Chief Justice said
"The motion of respondent's. counsel for
forty days' time in which to file their answer
has been overruled, and the 23d day of 3farch
is fixed for said return."
Mr. Bingham then moved that the trial
proceed forthwith on said 23d day of March.
The motion was lost by . yeas 25, nays 26, as

Several motions to fix the time for the trial
were made ; but one, bffered by Mr. Conk
ling, that the triul proceed immediately
after the replication be filed by. the House to
the President's answer on the 2311 of March,

nays, 10. The latter were Messr4. Bayard,
Buckalew, Davis, Dixon, 'Hendricks, John
son, McCreery, . Norton, Patterson (of Ten
nessee,) Saulsbury, and Vickers:
On the preliminary motion to fix different
dates, none exceeding April G, no votes were
taken ; but an hour's discussion took place
against such a brief time, by Mr. Curtis for
the President, and Butler fhr the Managers
—for the shortest notice. The latter's speech
was exceedingly partisan, full of low film—
such, for instance, as one, "that the Lord
destroyed the earth in forty days, and that it
would not take any such time to try im
peachment." Mr. Nelson, of the President's
counsel, handsomely rebuked the partisan
ship of Butler, and spoke eloquently of the
solemnities of the pending events, which, he
said, in no spirit of compliment, were - now
passing before the highest tribunal on ,earth.
The famous 3lcAnDe case, involving the
constitutionality of the reconstruction laws,
was argued before the Supreme Court, last
week, and was likely to be decided in a brief
period. In order to prevent an opinion of
the Court on the subject, a bill was melted
through Congress, on Thursday of last week,
,whielt i 9 designed to remove this and all
'similar cases from the jurisdiction of that
tribunal. "The bill," says the New York
Times, "on its face bore no evidence of im
portance. It seemed to be no more than a
measure required to relieve Collectors of In
ternal Revenue from annoyance ; and so it
professed to be. Taking advantage of the
absetMe of Democratic members, and with
out affording the slightest clue of its object
and scope, an amendment was added. re
pealing so much of a certain act as provides
for an appeal in habeas rows cases from the
Circuit Court to the United States Supreme
Court. No opposition was offered, because
nobody not in the secret understood the
game, and the bill us amended passed at
once. It was wried to the Senate, where it
slipped through with equal celerity. Not
until it had escaped the leghilative ordeal
was its import. underatood,:or its effect upon
the case now undergoing argument in the
Court." Mr. Johnson will, no doubt, veto it,
but it will be made u law over the veto, in
time to squelch the McArdle case.

The indications of the day all point to the
selection of Hon. Oeo. 11Pendleton, of Ohio,
as the probable nominee of the Democratic
National Convention for President, with
Mayor Ifoffman, of New York, or Senator
Doolittle, of Wisconsizi, as Vice . .President.
In our recent visit to the Baal we found the
feeling in favor of Mr. Pendleton nearly
unanimous; and some of his warmest sup
porters are gentlemen hailing from localiti e s
where it is not genemlly supposed that he has
a-great deal of strength: Mr. Belmont, Chair
man of the Democratic National Committee,
is said to favor his nomination, and the
friends of Mr. Pendleton allege 'that over
half of the New York delegation are pledged .
to sustain him. We may be deceived in up
pearances, but if the current of feeling among
the leading politicians of the State is a reli
able index, there is little chance to go amiss
in predicting who Pennsylvania's choice will
be in the of July Convention With

or more ago, a proposition
.to establish im
partial suffrage in'the State, i. e., let negroes

Messrs. Stranaltan, and Rea being among the
nays. That is a fair specimen of much of the
"Radical" Republicanism of the day, which
insists on negro suffrage in the South, where
it is more ignorant and irresponsible than
anywhere else, but refuses to engraft it upon
the policy of its OVVK State at home.
GEN. HANCOCK, some tithe since, removed
some of the aldermen and• other city officers
of New Orleans. lie did so because he de
clared that their conduct was so bad that
they could not be tole'rated. Nine of these
officers were removed. Seven of them were
negroes. The other day Grant issued en
order commanding Hancock to restore these
officers to the places from which he had re
moved them ! How do you like that, white
soldiers P IT. S. Grant has become the servile
tool of the Negro Suffrage fanatics in Con
gress. He appoints negroes to office, by his
own order. •
TiTE Boston Post's Washington correspon
dent telegraphed on Sunday night, thus : -
"Thb friends of President Johnson are less
sanguine of his acquittal this evening than
they have been before. The impression is
being made upon the minds of the Radicals
that unless they convict him' their party is
hopelessly lost, and fears are entertained that
this impression will insure the conviction of
the President beyond peradventure. If the
issue be the conviction of Andrew Johnson
or the destruction of the Radical party, the
Democrats feel satisfied that conviction will
follow. Such is the talk to-night in political
E are asNfar from real peace to:day as
we were when the war was closed. Indeed,
the feeling that now prevails between the
two sections is less peaceful, more bitter, and
more hostile, than it was when -Lee surren
deted to Grant. The people feel this to be
a fact, and they deplore it as calculated to
plungethe country deeper and deeper into
trouble and confusion. We are not` coming
out of the war with either credit to ourselves
or profit to the country. We are simply pro
longing its enmities and widening the'breach
which the cessation of armed strife ought to
have closed.
