THE returns from the county elections
held in South Carolina lust week, show that
the Radicals have again carried most of the
counties, but by reduced majorities. Many
counties in the interior, which gave Radical
majorities in April, have now elected Demo
cratic county tickets. We have: no doubt
that before five years, if the Democrats of
the South display proper judgment and zeal,
all the States of that section will be wrested
from the clutches ofßadicalism.
Galena, Illinois, the home of Gen. Grant,
was last week carried by the Democrats by
from 230 to 000 majority. If the sidewalk in
that city, from Grant's house to the railroad
depot, which he once wanted .built for his
own accommodation, and in order to accom
plish which he then aspired to be Mayor or
Councilman, i , not laid down yet, we hope

tinder this heading, the Dispatch prints
the following extract from a letter which it
says has been received by "an enterprising
Mannfacturing firm in this city," who made
application to a gentleman in West Virginia
for informationrelative to the responsibility
of a person residing in that State •
"They were followers of our 'lamented
Stonewall Jackson, and I believe them to be
MS reliable in the civil pursuits of life, as they
were brave in battle. *
In your dealings with our people select those
who were earnest, brave, fighting men in
our late unfortunate struggle, and you may
confidently expect open, honorable, fair
dealings. If you wish to be swindled select
such as were canting, ranting, cowardly fire
eaters, and who have desented - us in our day
of trial, are now7clahning to have been al
ways "loyal," and are now engaged in form

women, you NN ill very soon lose your liber

Deal honorably and magnanimously with
the South, and we may once again lee a free
amd happy community of States."
Without endorsing the presumed seces
sion views of the writer, w e cannot resist the
temptation to express our belief that there is
"more truth than poetry" in whet he states.
However ill-judged their conduct may have
been, there is no denying the fact that n;ne
ty-nine hundredths of the best people in all
the Southern States fully sympathized with
the secession movement, if they did not giro
it their active aid in the field. The class
who now disavow their former °Dinkins, and
seek y; humble themselves as low SLR possi
ble before the Baal of Radicalism, with few
exceptions, comprise the very meanest ele
ment d'Southcrn society, and arc as little to
be misted as the debased blacks with whom
they consort. A brave man is always an
Jtenorable man, while a sneak will stab his
best friend in the hack "wheneveri-his advan
tage can be secured by doing it, The in
stincts of every high toned citizen would
lead him to prefer dealing with a manly, out
spoken southerner, who does not hesitate, to
avow his candid sentiments, to any of:the
degenerate breed who now profess to have
renounced their past belief, and are ready
to creep on their knees in the mire for the
sake of winning the favor of the North. It
is one of the most telling points against Rad
ical reconstruction that it gives the contr.4
of the finest portion of the Union into the
hands of this l'OntVli , i , kib!r' and their
negro allies, v.1.a,, the brain, the wealth an,i
the business elem-nt of the South are de
prived of their political privilege's, and de
barred from renewing the vitality of their
section, as they alone are bt -t capable doing.

of Angeline Stewart, made a speech on the
gallows in which he proteoed his innocence
of the crime for which be w•aLs executed. He
pretended to haw experienced religion, re
ceived the - administrations of two clergymen,
said that hb forgave Lis enemies, including
the Judge who tried him, and who he thought

and spent the closing moments of his life in
prayer; and yet he went out of the world
with a falsehood on his lips,-or lawns an in
nocent man. Either of these alternatives is
dreadful to contemplate. One shrinks with
horror from the thought of an innocent man
being executed, and the very idea is enough
to convince any person of humane instincts
that our system of capital punishment needs
reform or abolishment.

1800 AIM 1868
The Albany Argus publishes ati editorial
article which clearly exhibits the contrast
between the Republican party as it was in
1860, when Lincoln was elected, and as it is
now. The conspicuous members of the
Republican Convention of 1860 were such
men as Francis P. Blair, Wm. M. Evans,
and a host of others embodying the talent_'
and respectability of the Convention—a ma
jority of whom are now ranked among the
Most decided opponents of the Radicals. In
the Chicago Convention of that year, there
were four prominent candidates for the
Presidency—Lincoln, Seward, Chase and
Bates. The last act of Lincoln's life was to
originate and adopt the policy of Johnson.
Bates abandoned the present Radical organi
zation before Lincoln died ; Seward is un
active enemy of Radicalism, and if there is
one man" in- the United States whom the
Radicals of to-day hate more bitterly than
Andrew Johnson, • that man is Salmon P.
Chase. Then Chase, and Trumbull, and
Fessenden, and Grimes, and Doolittle, and
Dixon, and Stanbery, and a host or other
great names were in the ranks of the Repub
licans. Now, they are either acting openly
with the Democracy, or are read out of the
Radical party by the hot heads who control it.
Nor is this all that is noticeable. IVhile_the
statesmen of the Republican party have aban
doned Radicalism, the vicious and treacher
ous elements of the Democratic party have
entered its fold. The party which became
too corrupt for Chase and Doolittle; Bates,
and Evarts, has demonstrated its affinity for.
Butler and Logan, Stanton and Dan. Sickles.
The leaders of the Radical party to-day—the
men who have Giant in their keeping—were
clamorous for SecesSion in 1860, and justified
the Southern States in re - sorting to arms to
repel the exercise of Federal power. Now,
Butler, Logan, Stanton, and Dan. Sickles,
are blatant Radical demagoguesond arc ac
corded the highest positions of honor in the
party that so recently despised them. They
take the places once occupied by Seward,
Chase, Trumbull, Stanbery, and others like
The abject pledge of Gen. Grant that he
will have no policy except that laid down
for him by the Radical leaders, affords a cor
rect measure of his capacity as a statesman.
He does not propose to be "a pillar of state,"
bin a weathercock to show which way the
wind blows, veering as the popular breath
changes and having no direction of his own.
But the Presidency is no place for a man
without ideas and . destitute of a policy; who
knows no rule of conduct but the servile one
of doing as he is bid ; and because it is bid
den thinking it right. Such debility of un
derstanding and servility of will cannot take
shelter under the truism that, in a republi
can government, the will of the people ought
to prevail. Certainly it ought ; but their de
liberate, settled will as expressed iu the Con
stitution ought to prevail over their fitful im
pulses on some fleeting occasion. The Con
stitution i_v*eir permanent mandate. If by
the will of the people be meant the caprice
of a transient majority, it is not at all binding
on the President. 'Unless we adopt ,, the
tyrannical principle that in a republican go-v.
ernment the minority have no. rights which
the majority are bound to respect, it maybe
a base desertion of Lis duty for a President
to have no policy of his own in opposition to
the will of a majority.
In a recent address before the Young Men's
Democratic Central Committee of New York
"City,„the gifted orator and patriot Don. Rich
4rd O'Gorman toughed upon one point that
shoulot be neglecteil by the young Dem--
ocr.Ts of the country, namely, the organiza
tion of Young Men's Club , for active work
in the great campaign now opening. The
young men of the North do not exhibit that .
interest in politics Which the state of the
country demands oe'them. They are ready
enough to vote, when voting day Comes, but
they do not work as they should during the
canvass. Nearly all the old men who once
guided the Democratic ship .have passed
away, and their placts must be filled. It is
the duty of young men in every part of the
country to step forward and do what they
can to save the •govennuent. They should
organ;:e elubs in - every county, and show
by an example ef_industry that they realize
the situation and know how to meet it. This
is the time for iv(ilk and there should be no
laggahls,es - ecially in the ranks of the youth

TUE irrepressible Wendell Phillips is alter
Gen. Grant and his Radical trainers with a
sharp stick. In a late ,peeeh in Boston, ho
said :
"We will have the ballot for the negro by

pose to do it? Mr, Phillips—l propose to do
it just as Christianity occupied the throne of

it by telling men just what God tells tue. I
will do it . by doing what the temperance
societies, which are as hide bound as the
churches, dare not do—examine a.Republi

popular man in America, who cannot stand
up before a glass of liquor without falling

plause.] I will4lo it by' opposing the Re
publican party when iblbids me "be silent

The Pittsburg Republic (itlepeudent) prints
the following deserved editorial tribuM to
the ability and worth of Pennsylvania's
Democratic United States Senator:
"It is with feelings of State pride, entirely
unmixed with anything like partisanship,
that we are led to make honorable mention
of Hon. Charles It. Buckalew, United States
Senator from Pennsylvania. We regard
him .as one of the ablest men of that body.
His speeches arc characterized by clearness
of logic, sound reasoning, forcible argument,
and loftiness and purity of rhetoric. Al
though an uncompromising Democrat, he
never fails to command the attention and re
spect of Republican members, for he never
so far forgets himself in the heat of debate,
'as, to indulge in intemperate and ill-timed re
marks. It would be well for the country if
both the great political parties would always
select such men as their' representatives in
the councils of' the nation." .
THE indications arc that the Senate will
pass the bill which* has already been adopted
1w the admitting 'N'orth and South
Carf:llua, Georgia, Alabama and Louisiana.
A separate: bill has virtually passed- already
for the admission of Arkansas, and the re
mainder of the excluded States, viz.: Vir
ginia, Florida, 'Mississippi and Texas, will
probably go over until next winter, unless
the Radicals should deem their admission a
necessity: in order to strengthen -the Grant
and Colfax ticket. All the legislation of
Congress towards the Southern States, for
the past two years, has been with a view to
obtaining their vote for the Radical candi
date for the Presidency in the pcnding cam
paign, and whatever, in the opinion of the
party leaders, will contribute to that end, is
pretty sure to be done ere the election takes
T lIE Louisiille Journal, which enjoys the
reputation of being cautious in its statements,

that Senator Ponteroy's vote was offered him
for ten thousand dollars. The Managers de
clined the proposal. If the story• be true a
committee to investigate the Managers' in
vestigation should be appointed at once ; if
not true, it should be authoritatively denied

The obsequies of ex-President Buchanan
at Lancaster,. on Thursday list, were the
most impressive that have ever been 'seen in
that vicinity. All classes of people - United in
paying their last respects to the memory of
the departed sage, business was suspended,
flags displayed at half mast, the city bells
tolled, and party „dissensions fcr
completely buried. The . i
terred in the Cemetery at' Lancaster, and
were followed to the grave by a - proCessiota
two miles long, including some of the mcst
prominent citizens in the Union, and many
of the ex-President's political opponents.
Mr. Buchanan's hold upon the, affections of
his neighbors was very great, and was owing
to the purity, patriotism and benevolence of
is character, which even his most violent
partizan foes freely acknowledge. On the
Saturday preceding his death, the ex-Presi
dent gave explicit directions to his executor,
in regard to his burial and funeral. He re
that there should be no large or ex
pensive monument erected over his remains,
but only a simple and substantial. oblong
tomb, the capstone to be of the finest and
most durable marble, on which should be cut,
in Roman letters, the, following inscription,
end nothing more : Here rest the remains
of James Buchanan, fifteenth President of
the 'United States. Born in Pranklincounty,
Pennsylvania, April 23,1791. Died at his
residence, at Wheatland, Lancaster county,
Pennsylvania, on June the Ist, 1868. In the
same interview he said : "The principles of
the Christian religion,were instilled into my
mind in my youth, and from all I have ob
served and experienced in the long life
Providence has vouchsafed to me, I have on
ly become more strengthened in my convic
tion of' the divine character of the Savior,
and the power of atonement through His re
deeming grace and mercy" At the conchi
sion he remarked in reply to an expressed
hope that he might yet live to see the coun
try . fully restored to peace and prosper

the future. Posterity will do me justieb ; I

The present temper or the Democratic
party leads to the inference, at least, that no
mistake will be Made in the New York Con
vention. From all sections of the country
there is the same earnest desire to nominate
a ticket that will command the confidence of
the public in all localities, and place that
ticket upon a platform that will be cordially
endorsed by all who do not approve of the
revolutionary proceedings of the Jacobin
cabal at Washington. It is this unanimity
of sentiment that has given the Radicals the
impression that the Democracy are troubled
about finding a candidate. There is no such
trouble existing. There are candidates
enough, , and every one of them good men,
but with ail the candidates and the leaders
of the party generally there is the same de:
sire to so shape the action of the Convention,
and present such a ticket as will unite In its
support the great mass of the people of all
sections, who are opposed to the revolution
ary course of the Radical faction now trying
to ruin the country. From all the present
indications the Democratic Convention will
assemble ou the Fourth of July under circum
stances calculated to insure harmony in its
actions, and the adoption of a course that
will meet the approval of the public of all
sec lions.

THE Southern "rebels"—the "unrecon

AT the late election in Washington
city, some of the negroes who could
read and write voted the conservative
ticket, and came near iicrificing their lives
for so doing. The Mounted police had to
rescue them from the Mob of black men, who
beat them severely. The negro ticket was a
large placard, with a red wood-cut of Grant
printed on it, so that the poor, ignorant ne•
grocs could tell that the picture-ticket was
the one they had to vote. They knew it in
no other way.
WE bare made the charge over and over

who deny that they are in favor of any such

act and escape the resposibility. Every man
who sustains a Republican nominee is in

TILE :cost of the Impeachment trial is
foobid up by the Albany Argus at four hun

Girard Correspondence.
DEIR OE:SERVER :-It would be quite safe
to say that summer has really commenced.
Our village and, vicinity never looked more
beautiful. The comilon expression of strong-,
erg, so many of whom come and go daily
from every town and village, now-a-days, is
that Girard is the most pleasant looking
place they know -of. Its surroundings are
certainly enchanting. Those who admire
the beauties of nature and those who regard
only: the stern realities of rich lands and
good crops, both find an abuodante with
which to delight themselves. Why men of
wealth, whose only task is to live at ease, do
not choose such quiet, beautiful places as
Girard for their residences is to be wondered
at. With all the privileges of a stirring
town; and near enough to enjoy the peculiar
favors of a city by a ride of less than thirty
minutes over the best railroad in America, it
would suit the most fastidious. A street has
been opened direct from - the depot to the vil
lage, over which, we are confident, street
cars will run as early as you have them on
State street. _Along this street many dwelling
sites have been sold. A few most desirable
ones remain unsold—splendid opportunity
for an editor's summer residence. Girard cer
tainly. owes much to the liberality-and energy
of Dan Rice, who is so deeply concerned m
the welfare of the village and vicinity, that
it is doubtful whether a transfer to the White
House would be, to him, desirable.
The "happy family" were advertised for a
re-union last Saturday night, and, getting
sight of the same bottle referred to last week,
we followed to the place of meeting, which
was Albee's Hall, at the tavern. Upon our
arrival, we found a dreary silence pervading
the assembly—the meeting, as yet, being,
"without form and void." The President,
with commendable courtesy, offered us front
seats, but not wishing to go forward quite
yet, we retained a secluded spot, strongly
impressed that the "place of honor was the
private station." An address by the candi
date "possessing the requisite qualifications"
was on the bills, and several Democrats, some
who labeired in the good old cause when the
expected speaker was strong in the faith,
chairman of Douglas meetings, and respected
President Lincoln enough to say that "he
was an old fool" In lieu of the address the
aforesaid candidate would make' a speech,
"for be had not prepared himself, and there
were but few out," both' of which assertions
were undoubtedly true. • About the time the
speaker arose, we glanced about the room at
the material:. An Ass-emblyman, a bank
rupt Register, Postmaster, Assistant Ass-es
sor, several tax CO - Hectors, candidate for Con
gress, candidat for Legislature, and a few
citiiens,among candidate
were several unterri
fied Democrats. Upon first entering the
Hall, we observed a lame placard upon the
wall announcing that 'gentlemen will not
form on the floor until called by the mana
ger." For a while we were undecided ns to
the nature of the performance. Was it to be
a war dance? or possilly a procession was to
be formed for a funeral 1 The melancholy
countenances rather indicated the latter.
At all events, the people are digging the
grave-for the corrupt party, which, for the
past few years,'has inflicted upon' the coun
try 'curses gxeviertia to endure.
The President, at this juncture, announced
that on account of the unexpected absence of
the committee upon resolutions he would
call upon the speakers present to make a few
remarks The Congressional aspirant pro
ceeded to say, "that at present there is not
much to say. He could not get steam up,
but that so soon as the Democrats made their
nominations there would. be something to
pitch into and talk about." How' grand a
thought! How weighty the conclusion.
How widely different in spirit from the im
mortal Webster, whose virtue a candidate
should regard while he aspires to occupy his
honored position. Said the great statesman :
"If I am gifted with little of the- spirit which
is said to be able to raise mortals to the skies,
I have yet none, I trust, of that other spirit
which would drag angels down." About
this time, two gentlemen and a dog entered,
whereupon the President announced that as
the committee had arrived the resolutions
would be read. These were of the common
stripe, wailing for the poor soldier, who left
home and them, and went out to lay down
his life for his country while they stayed at
home, announcing a determination to sup
port the available•candidate and obey orders
generally. The - next speaker followed with
some good counsel as to the labor before
them. Ile.tehi. them "not to, be , deceived . ,
as he had been for yea* thinking the-Dein
ocratie party dead, for it would ncrer (lie."
Glorious truth ! Long after the fanatics, who
have reveled in the countrY's destruction and
crucified its brightest hopes; {hall lave rot
ted to common dust, will the guardian spirit
of true Democracy live to bear her up.
up, 'till she becomes the light of Nations.
When we departed, a facetious gentleman
Was, CSsessing the - patience of those present
with a speech ("he, , also, was 'unprepared,' ")
which reminded us forcibly of a balfol, lisp
ing schoolloy's first effort— ° .ou'd scarce
'speet one uv my age," &-c. We understand
that a roll of ills-holier was opened, and each
- recruit was recorded—bolter , arc to be l

"sometimes raised against certain medicines
on the ground that they cure so many dif
ferent diseases. A moment's reflection will
expose the shallowness of such anargument,
for there is scarcely a medical drug-of any
kind that is not used for more than ono
*disease. The reason why 3lishler's Herb
Titters cures so many diseases is because it
is the best remedy ever discovered for a
deranged stomach, or dyspepsia, and because
it invigorates the entire system, strengthens
the nervous fibres, elevates the standard of
ail 'the vital forces, and sustains a most
healthful tone of the entire human organism.
Medicine that will do this, will cure any
