being one of the most intereq-
and ably edited of our exchanges,
never fails to evince a more than ordi
naryshare of good sense, in alluding,to
the proposed nomination of Chief Jus
tice Chase as the Democratic candidate
for President, well says that when the
idea was first suggested, it "teemed so
wild and absurd, that we regarded it
the,sensational talk of crack-brained
Washington reporters, who, impeach
ment being over, found themselves some
what at a loss for topics about which
to write. We find, however, in the
New York World, a leading editorial,
seriously naming Jisige Chase as "of
course" the chief opposing candidate to
Mr. Pendleton in the 4th of July Con
vention. The article was evidently writ
ten as a " feeler," in behalf of the Chief
"It seems to us most wonderful that
any trustworthy Democratic Journal
should delude itself for a moment with
the idea that the Democracy in rein
vention assembled will seriously enter
tain a proposition to make Judge Chase
their candidate. He will be a bold man
who will even suggest his name to the
Convention ; and thi-, because Judge
Chase is not a Democrat. The Democ
racy have never yet selected as their
candidate for the Chief Magistracy, a
man whose record as a Democrat was
'not life long, consistent • and unvary
ing; and they will not begin to do it
now. Having.pursuelihis course, they
have alWays e,caped being "Pylerized'
—a fate which constantly befalls the op
po:-ition. When the Democracy fight
a battle, they want 'to be thoroughly
that if they win, they will gain
:tilbstantial victory for their princi
pl,, and not Merely the shade of one.
They want to know that the fruits of
ti wir victory will not torn to nAte-; on
their lips.
" We have the highest persontil admi
ration and respect for Judge Chase.
Ent he is not with us anti cannot be our
candidate. One great issue in the pre
sent contest is the negro suffrage ques
tion. Judge-Chase has made a record
strongly in favor of negro suffrage, and
the Democratic party is unalterably
opposed to it. Judge Chase might re
ceive the support of a good many Con
servative Republicans, but' his nomi
nation would chill the ardor of 'the
Democratic hosts, even it' 5t did not

ern haters, negro fanatics, and needy
adventurers, backed in their power by
the 'army of the United -States. They
have done , more to breed an irradicable
alienation of the . peorde ofthe Southern
States, from the people oflhe Northern
States, than the war itself. It is they
who have got up the Union Leagues
amongst the negroes, and have made
them enemies of the white race. It is
they who are the instruments of the Ra
dical plirty, to Africanizo' the South, and
to put the white man under the nd,gro.
It is they who have indoctrinated the
negro with the idea, that to take the
White man's land is their right; and to
kill him is a righteous duty. All the
public riots, and not a few of the private
murders perpetrated by the negroes on
the white people, are traceable directly
to the ineendia - ry teachings of some of
the agents of this Bureau: Everywhere
its influence, With but few exceptions,
has been adverse to the peace of the
country, or to any steady or efficient
industry amongst the blacks. It is not
at all surprising that the revolutionary
disunionist.; at Washington, and the few
Southern traitors who support their po
licy, should desire it- continuance
until after their negro policy in the
South is completed.
TIM Cleveland " Plaindealer" notices
the fact of the election of a Democratic
Mayor and Iloard of Aldermen in Ga
lena, Illinois, the former home of (;ene
ral Grant, and add:::
, The victory is more gratifying as it was
a strict party contest in view of the ap
proaching Presidential campaign, in the
place where Grant is better known than
in any other spot on earth, and where
E. B. Washburne, who has assumed the
guardianship of the General, has resided
for many years. Mr. Savage, the newly
elected MayOr of that city, is one of the
moqt thorough-going r outspoken, and re
liable Democrats in all that region, and
was, at the time of his election, the editor
of the Galena "Democrat," a journal
that has ever been perfectly free in its
utterances, and consistent in its undis
guised hostility to Radicalism in all its%
forms and_varieties: A few years ago,
six different attempts -were made in one
day to demolish the office of that paper,
by a rabble instigated to the cowardly
act by that same E. B. Washburne and
his unprincipled foil owers and dupes.
But now the City 'of Galena stands re
deemed from every -vestige of that intol
erant and dastardly spirit, not a single
office in the city being held by the
friends of Washburne and his reticent
protege. - •
Tux extravagant managoont of the
Federal finances by the Radical party
is likely to be :further exposed. The
deficiency- in the Paymaster -general's
office is $2,3,000,003, and is attracting
much attention. Congress •endeavored
to secure popularity by voting large
- bounties to soldiers, and at the same
time avoid the charge of profligacy by
nut appropriating the necessary funds.
Hence the enormous deficiency in the
War Department. The Internal Re
venue Department will fall thirty-live
million dollars below Mr. Rollin's e'sti
mate. This fact induced the Commis
sioner's unexpected resignation. "fo all
this will soon be added the fearful defi
ciency of the Post-office Department ;
the accounts of which have not balanced
since the 31st of December. Let the facts
and figures come before the people, and,
the dominant party will not receive'
much credit on the score of economv.
MessrB. Bratton & Kennedy, of the Car
lisle Volunteer, will resume the publica
tion of the Caucasian, an illustrated De
mocratic campaign paper, on July 10,
1868, to continue until after the Presiden
tial election. Each number will be embel
lished with portraits of distinguished
Democratic statesmen or humorous cuts
illustrative of the political history of the
times. This feature made the Cauca

oc monthly reports of the secretary of
.ue Treasury disclose to the people at conve
nient intervals the financial exploits of the
Government, and the policy it has pursued
in the effort to relieve itself of monetary em
barrassments. The report for May is par
'fieularly interesting. We made some allu
.sion to it last week, but in order to.afford our
readers a better conception of the facts, wo
give a summary of its contents, with such
'comments as are necessary to show its beau
ties to en admiring world:
Gold debt increased, - - 07,449,650
Seven-thirties reduced, - ris,oos,oso
Compound-interest notes reduced, 19,701,710
Coin in the Treasury increased 19,631,098
Currency decreased, 11,104,983
The total result, therefore, of our financial
operations for May is to add about three and
a half millions of gold interest to our annual
1 indebtedness. Our currency-bearing interest
debt we have qduced in about the same pro
portion. The object of the Secretary. and . of
the Radical Congress is to take up as fast as
possible all the debt that bears no interest,,
and all the debt that bears currency interest,
and convert into to gold bearing interest debt,
which interest is about forty per cent.
above what the interest would be in 'Currency.
There is financial talent for you.
Bat this is not all. The Treasury has
nearly $17,000,000 more of gold this month
than it had last month. :Many people would
have supposed that it would have been lietfer
to have taken this seventeen millions that is
now lying idle in the Treasury, drawing no
interest; and employed it in taking up five
twenty bonds, upon which we are paying six
per cent. gold interest. There would- have
been in this little transaction a saving of a
million of dollars in gold. a year, In the shape
of interest on the bonds. But Such. an item
is not thought to amount to anything by the
Radical financiers in Congress, who control
the Secretary of the Treasury. While we
have got sixteen millions of dollars in gold in
the Treasury more than we had last month,
we have called in and burned up over eleven
millions of dollars in currency, that was
costing the Government no interest whatever.
But money was thought to be too plenty nosy
by the wiseacre.; in Washington, and hence
they have adopted this policy of making it
scarcer, and producing a stringency in the
times. The points of our National financial
policy may be briefly recapitulated as follows:
1. Increase of the gold debt, and gold inter
est upon it.
2.• Extinguish all indebtedness that draws
Ino interest; or is payable in currency.
3. Accumulate an enormous amount of
gold in the Treasury, to he kept idle, and for
which the Government receives no interest.
Columbia Co
4. Call in anti destroy the greenbacks, in
-order to make money tight, with its corres
ponding correlatives of depressed business
and hard times.
This, we repeat, is the policy at Washing ,
ton'. It is the policy of the Secretary of the
Treasury. It is the policy of the Radical
Congress, which, by law, has authorized the
Secretary to adopt it. It is the nolicY of the
Cideago Convention which nominated Grant.
It is a policy to impoverish the country. It
is a policy that is opposed to reason and com
mon, sense. It is a policy which, if it was
pursued by a private individual, in the man
_agement of an estate, as guardian or admin
istrator, would justify the wards or heirs in
resorting to legal proceedings to stop such
squandering of their patrimony. An indi
vidual who would manage his own estate in
this manner would be considered a fit sub
ject for the lunatic asylum.
Our National affairs are now being man
aze.l for the interests of a privileged few.
1 hey are managed in the intere.fs of gold
"rings" and stock jobbing thieves. There is
no use mincing matter, or of refr.tining
eillinq them by their right n•sme2. It is
'imply nn elaborate scheme of villainy and
public plunder.
The bill for readmitting the six States of
No l rth Carolina, South Carolina, Louisiana,
Alabama, Georgia, and Plot ida, has pa.-sed
both Houses, and, at the end of the ten days
allowed the President for its spusideration, it
will be, iu form and semblance, a law of the
United States. Arkansas has already been
admitted by a separate bill, and there re
main only the three States of Virginia, 3lis
sissippi and Texas to be acted upon. The
act recites,that these States have adopted
Constitutions republican in form, and shall
be entitled to representation as soon as their
Legislatures have ratified the amendment to
the Constitution known as Article
_l4, pro..
posed by the XXXIX Congress. It provides :
"Sr.erimi 1. That the, Constitution of
said States shall never he so amended or
changed as to deprive any citizen or cl a ss of
citizens of the United States of the
right to vote by the Constitution here
in recognized, except as punishment of such
crimes as arc now felonies at common law,
whereof they shall have been duly convicted
under laws equally applicable lb all the in
habitants of said State ; provided, that any
alteration of said Constitution, prospective
in its effect, may be made with regard to the
time and place of residence of voters; and
the State of Georgia shall only be entitled
and admitted to representation Upon this
fundamental condition That the first and
third subdivision's of section 17 of the Oh
article of the Constitution of said State, ex
cept the proviso to the first subdivision; shall
be null and void, and that the General As
seinbtv of said State by solemn public ,act
'shall declare the assent of the State to the
foregoing tundamental condition,"
It further provides for the early compliance
with the terms of readmission by the assem
bling of such of the Legislatures of the
States as are not in session within twenty
days from the time this act takes eifect ; and
when the terms specified are complied with
the rifficiFrs of each State duly qualified un
der the State Constitution shall ba inaugu
gurated without delay. It is also made the
duty of the President, within ten days
after receiving official information of the
ratification of said amendment by the Legis
lature of either State, to issue a proclama
tion announcing the fact.
Ix our =nu:nuance with politics weThaVe
never seen or heard of any nominations that
hare fallen so coldly on a party as those of
Chicago have fallen on the Republicans. At
their ratification meetings andthey have
been comparatively few—the enthusiasm
manifested is of a forced character, as differ
ent from the genuine its is the thunder and
lightning of the stage from that of nature.
The attempt made in this city, a few weeks
ago, to rouse the energy of the party, is a
fair sample of the experience in every locali
ty. The heart of the people is not yearning
toward Radicalism just now. It wants some
thing more thazynilitary glory to warm it up.
Military glory will not lift the heavy burden
from the shoulders of the people that now
oppresses them.. It will not meet the interest
on the public debt. It will not pay taxes,
nor help to pay them. It will not bring
bread to the mouths of the hungry, nor cloth
ing to the barks of the naked. It will not
stimulate indintry, encourage business or
furni , h employment to labor. Those Radi
cals who expect to carry the election by the
military prestige of their candidate will be the
most deceived of men. The people will hon
or that in its place, as they have done ; but
they will discriminate as to the occasion.
And it is evident,. they do not think the nom
ination of an overrated General, at this time,
to the Presidency, is one of the occasions to
manifest their admiration and gratitude for
his services.
A VERY recent number of the Philadelphia
Press is freighted with the - astounding Infor
mation "that there are many children named
after Chase, Fessenden, Grimes, Ross or Fow
ler, who are now branded with a stigma for
ever." Alas I alas! what is to bo done with
these unfortunates ? Why should not the
Rump issue a decree like that of King
Herod's, and order the immediate slaughter
of these innocents, and thus save them from
the weary weight of woe they • must drag
through life with such terrible names at
tached to their patronymics? Why not im
peach the guilty parents who have had the
impudent audacity to attempt to perpetuate
the memory of such ttifhtuous traitors?
The latest reports from Oregon give the
Democratic majority as between twelve and
thirteen hundred.-Most of the counties gave
unexpectedly large Democratic majorities.
The'total vote is 22,000, the largest ever cast
in the State. The Senate stands 12 Demo
crats and 10 Republicans ; "the Rouse 28
Democrats awl 19 Republicans. For the last
seven years, every department of State
government has been in the hands of the
Republican Oregon is reliably Democratic
in future.
The election in South Carolina astounds
.the Radicals. The negroes there outnumber
the whites two to one, awl they never - ima
gined that any other than the Radical - Rcket.
j could be elected. They had just readmitted
the State into the -Union, when, lo and be
hold, the news comes that sixteen out of the
thirty-one districts have been carried by the
"Deniocrats! We are in momentary expect
ation,that some enterprising Radical will in
troduce a bill remanding the pugnacious lit
tle State to her late condition es a "subjuga
ted territory."
Wherever an election occurs this year the
evidences of the swelling• tide against Radi
calism receive fresh reinforcements. At the
municipal contest in Mound City, I 1., the
Democracy were victorious by arlarge ma
jority, making a gain of 100 since last year.
Why is that neither the Dispatch, Gazette
-nor Republican publish any of this interest
ing information?

The man Callicot, who was•recently sent
to the Albany Penitentiary, was, some years
ago, elected to the New York Legislature as
a Democrat. The State House for legiilatiiin
is: at Albany, as is also the State prison for
the punishment of Criminals. Callicot,
when he went to Albany as a legislator,
found the two political parties of the House
equally divided, and he sold his vote to the
Republicans, by which they got a United
States Senator. After that, Callicot was apt
pointed by Lincoln a cotton agent, which,
position he used to feather his own
nest. He
next appointed a collector Of
revenue by President Johnion, on the recom
mendation of Senator Morgan and other lead
ing Radicals. For fobbing the revenue he .
was recently tikd and sentenced to the State
prison at Albany. Ile arrived at Albany a
day or two ago, nn'l was consigned to the
State ini4 )wa; a criminal. He went to Albany
as legislator, and he returns as a convicted
criminal. That was a melancholy swinging
round the circle.
Colfax, the Radical candidate for• Vice
President, Is a politician by trade, and
has always been notorious in Indiana as
a chronic office beggar. He was an ori
ginal Know-Nothing, and as such was
elected to Congress, being one of the
most bitter And loud-mouthed defamers
of Catholics and of our foreign born fel
low-citlgens. Like others of his class,
he naturally allied himself with the Re
publiban party, when the fusion between
the Know-Nothings and the Abolitio
nists took place. The resolution in re
ference to naturalized citizens adopted
by the Chicago Convention was merely.
a tub thrown to the whale ; and when
that is quoted every naturalized citizen
will recall the andeeedents of the party
and of the nominee, Schuyler Colfax,
the Know-Nothing.
So mm of our Radical - cotemporarics are
speculating extensively upon the chances of
Chief Justice Chase's election, in ease,' he
should receive the Democratic nomination
for President. We - sugirest to our amiable
cotemperrtries that the less they say upon the
subject the less time, trouble, ink and paper
will be wasted. Judge Chase will not re
ceive the nomination, but a true, tried and
straight-forward DemPerat will, whose .ellec

The "Bops in Blue."
3ln. EDITOR:-At a Black-and-Tan-Car
pet-Bag meeting held at the State Capitol in
Montgomery; Alabama, on the 30th of May
last, many of the soldiers stationed there
were present, no doubt by invitation, as the
Rads presumed of course the "Boys in Blue"
were all for Grant and Colfax. In thin the
"loll" Black-and-Tans were egregiously mis
taken. When the place for applause came
in, these "Boys in Blue" gave three groans
for Grant, three cheers for McClellan, and
three 'cheers for Andrew Johnson, and all
with a hearty good will. This dis-"loil"
conduct on the part of the "boys" called out
an order from the shoulder-strapped com
mander, Brevet Brig. Gen. Shephard, giving
the "boys" a blowing up for "insuixtrdins,tion
and disrespect to the General of the Army."
The fact is; these "boys" understand the po
litical status of• the times, viz: As comman
der of the army they award to Gen. Grant
all dui rtopeet, but to U.-S. Grant,.the stand
ard-bearer of this Radical, disunion party,
they as citizens (for they are American,citi
zens) claim a right to express their 'opinion.
Yes, their contempt for such a candidate and
the party. he represents. Conterapt,..l say,

fields they have.waded through teputdown
the Rebellion: sad restore the Union, new all
turned to Radical account to prereaf the res
toration of the Union . and perpetuate their
power; and that is not all. They claim ne
gro equality, and that "were, it - not tor the
megro soldiers victory would not have been
ours." Verily,, these braye "boys", have a
right to claim, as they did claim, that "this is
IL white man's'Govenunent,and that tlaCy.nre
white men."
Suppose we put the boot on the other leg ;
had they given three cheers for Grant, three.
groans for MCOlellim, and taw groans for
Johnson, do You believe Gen. Shepherd
world have issued his order? Not a bit of
it. The cry would have sounded from one end
of the country to the other, through the Rad
ical papers, "The Boys in Blue are for Orant
and Colfax!" Yes, sir, this would havebeen
the case, notwithstanding President Johnson
is their legitimate head, the "commander-in
chief of the army and navy of 'the United
States." , •
But, again, how is it nearer home! At the
municipal election in Washington city, the
"Boys in Blue" voted the conservative tick
et, notwithstanding the physiog. of the com
manding General was printed at the head of
the Radical ticket in red ink, to show that
"Hiram" had blood, in his eye, and that the
"Boys in Blue"—who no doubt had special,
leave to attend the election—were expected
to be "loll," and .vote ids ticket. But, alas

"A month ago oa - Sunday afternoon, the

... Tug Clinton (Ct.) County Independent, for-
Inerly a Republican paper, Is now published
in the interest of the Democracy. Its editor,
Mr. George,Sellers, who has been a Republi
can ever since the organization of that party,
"Says he 'could stand .it no longer. We quote
the following from his last issue: -
a "Nearly - all the decent men who ever be
longed to the Republican or Radical party
Lave left, and many more will leave it as
soon as they learn the truth. Chief Justice
'Cites(; "Senators Trumbull,' Grimes, RosS,
,EMenden, - Cowan,' Doolittle, Dixon, and
even the President of the United States, have
left 'the party since It fell Into the hands of
such ,dirty, thieves as Butler, Dirty
Work Logan, and other original fanatics and
abolitionists like Stevens and Sumner."
BEronE surrendering the War Office, Stan
ton destroyed many, very many, papers on
file there relating to secret interior party mat
ters, - particularly of detective matters ,and
confidential reports, upon which' his high
handed action was in many instances based.
It will never be known how much the inde
pendence of his - subordinates has been op
pressed. In all branches'of office—the Freed
men's Bureau, the Detective and the Army—
he has had hosts of satellites in secret corres
pondence with him, the matter of which has
no doubt been destroyed. In the army the
purest and best hav'e had to be extremely
cautions of speech among even intimate as
sociates. The army has been degraded by
minions. i 1 better time dawns.
IT is worthy of remark that every election
which has been held since the nomination of
General Grua for the Presidency exhibits
Democratic gains and Radical losses. The
notion that General Grant's popularity as a
military man would seduce Democrats to
abandon their principles, and support negro
equality- and military despotism, proves a
complete mistake; on the contary, the Demo
cratic party is daily growing stronger by the
accession of the honester and alone intelligent
portion of the Republicans, who find' that
their leaders are constantly violating the
principles hypocritically professed by the
Convention , which ; nominated Lincoln and
Hamlin at Chicago in 1860.
TIIE Secretaries of the forthcoming Na
tional Democratic Convention of the 10 - fal'
,conservative soldiers and sailors organized
.under the call of the Cleveland Convention,
have taken the large room of Cooper Insti•
tote froin the 4th of July forward, with the
intention of holding their Convention there,.
if possible, iu harmony with the National
Democratic Convention which is to assemble
at Tammany Ilall. The chief officers of this
Convention will embrace among others :
3laj. Gen. Franklin, Maj. Gen. Steedman,

IT is a little remarkable that the Chicago
Convehtion should have called for its first set
speech after organization upon ex-Governor
Brown, of Georgia, the'ouly undeniable trai
tor in that State. For the others there is at
least the plea of secession, but . this-fah
seized, et arida, upon Fort Pulaski even
before his State "went out." Yet the Con
vention, this "loir Convention, invited him
to open its delibirations, and by this su
perior compliment put itself on record as pre
ferring a renegade secessionist to any of,
its five hundred loyalists tried in the fire.
•Ai admirer of Thad. Stevens, writing to
the Chicago Journal, says he plays at "faro' ,

he seldom bets more than $5O at a time:
The simplicity of the statement is about on a
par with that of a returned Gentile from

friends, that kreereant son had abandoned
the religious faith of his fathers, remarked,
"Well he isn't what you may cairn regular

Tm warrants issued by the Treasurer for
the expenses of the Goternment during the
month of May, amounted to, forty-six and a
half millions of dollars. At thatrate*the an

the wasteful rule of the Radicals, amounts
to five hundred and thirty-eight millions a
year ; and that in time of. peace. If the peo

11.1nrc.r.' newspapers are circulating a
story to - the effect that Gen. Grant wrote his
letter of acceptance in less titan ten minutes,
dashing it off in the presence of some gentle
men who had called upon him. The thing
is'possible. We know hundreds of men: who
could write a better letter in less time. Any

It brfigorates the entire system, strengthens
the nervous fibres, elevates the standard of

healthful tone of the entire human organism.
Medicine that will do this, will cure any
