N. B. Forrest, the amiable butcher of Fort
Pillow, has been elected a delegate to the
.National 'Democratic Convention in ?slew
York. Will he or they he disgraced ?—Dir•
Joseph E. Brown, the rebel Ex-Governor
who had special control of the horrible An
dersonville prison, was a delegate to the Rad
ical Convention in Chicago, and the first man
called upon for a set speech by that immacu
late body. W s a; he or they "disgraced ?"
Brown was an original secessionist. He was
one of the "preeipitatdrs" of that fool-hardy
measure, N\ hich Forrest was- not. Forrest
opposed secession. Brown favored it, and
after he had induced the people to accept it,
he abandoned it. Forrest did not, but fought
•until the close.. Which is the most honora
ble man ? The original fomentor of a strug
.4le, who, after it has commenced, in accord=
once v,:tlt Lis suggestions, ignominiously
halo out,or one who opposes the commence
ment of a fight, but, after he is in, adheres to
it like a nrm and a hero ?
CUAS. E. llcho, Esq., local editor of the
Dispatch, and Thos. E. Wilson, Esq., night
editor, will
,soon dissolve their connection
with that paper—the former to go upon one
of the New York dailies, and the latter to as
sume the supervision of the Detroit Tri-
Weekly Tribune. We regret to see them
leave Erie, with them success and content
ment, anal hope both may experience a Rad
ical change of heart—that is from Radical
Republicanism, to good, sound, healthy Rad
ical Democracy, the only thing that produces
true happiness hi this degenerate age of the
the world. Samuel Woods, Esq., will re
sume his old position as the Dispatch local,
and Mr. Levi Johnson becomes the night
editor of our cotemporary. B. F. IL Lynn,
Esq.,thas secured an interest in the Detroit
Tribune office, one of the largest and most
profitable printing establishments in the
West, where he will -find an ample field for
his energy, enterprise and unexcelled skill as
a printer. Mr. Lynn labored as few men
could do to build up a successful daily paper
in Erie, with better advantage to his reputa
tion than to his purse, and we hope he is at
length to secure that substantial prosperity
which was denied him here.
A Nutt - HARM:INV.—Upon invitation of
Capt. John If. Welsh, we went on Tuesday
afternoon to the farm of Gen. Rillpatrick to
see the working of the "Mercier Flexible
Harrow," the right of which for Erie county.
has been purchased by the Captain. This
harrow is - composed of seven light wooden
bars with five teeth iu each bar and connect
ed by 3-4 inch iron rods joined between each
bar by cast-iron thimble joints, and the whole
connected by ordinary trace chains running
through the ends of the bars, leaving each
one independent of the other, find thereby
working equally well on tough or smooth
ground. The horses can be attached to
either end of the harrow, thus making the
teeth to last twice as long without sharpen
ing as by the old fashioned kind. By taking
out the third bar from either side, and sub
stituting one without teeth, it becomes an
excellent coot cultivator, doing three times
the amount of work that can be done by the
common cultivator. No ttvo teeth run in
the same line, and consequently- the gpund
is thoroughly pulverlied. The ground where
this trial was made was mere than ordinarily
rough and uneven, yet the result was entire
ly satisfactory. This. harialff can be taken
apart in less than one minute and packed in
any buggy, and can be put ;together in about
the same time by any boy of ordinary intelli
gence without possibility of mistake. While
costing , no more than the common harrow,
it combines the qualities of lightness and
durability, and does more work 'and far bet
ter than any implement of the kind now in
use. The Captain informs us that he is
about to purchase more territory, and will at
once proceed to introduce the harrow to the
notice of the limners, and we predict for him
complete success.

Dcai• OW/ Ter :—Since writing you last,
nothing has transpired worthy of notice, and
were it tot that there were some new sub

in writing. Some of the anxious may, be

orator of this section said he would not make
his expected address because—because "it

his head inside the door, when the number

among the faithful is, "who is the correspon

"right" in this as in his political opinions
The Democrats here are waiting anxious

age in this section. Since its descent to the
lowest form of Radicalism the number taken
here has beautifully decreased. Its unprin
cipled course ,on politics for several years
has been admitted by all, while some promi
nent Republicans claim it has been an injury
to the party ; now, they say it is insult added
to injury. lts -political articles are simply
disgusting everybody save, possibly, the fel
low who writes them. Yours,
A muous feature of the present campaign
was the meeting recently of the American
Equal Rights Association; including the
leading advocates of woman suffrage, and
the appointment - by them of Miss Susan B.
Anthony as delegate at large for the women
of the 'United States to the Democratic Na
tional Convention "to press upon the dele
gates the propriety of embracing woman
suffrage within their resolves." Miss An
thony declares Ler determination to appear
in' the Convention as a delegate. We hope
she will be admitted and given a tall seat in
the synagogue.

Lir. Gazette of this Week contains a severe
communication furiously attacking Congress-
Man Scofield's political record, accusing him
of being grasping, insincere and unscru
pulous, and calling upon the Radical voters
of the county to vote down Us aspirations
for a fourth term. _
"The combat deepens'; on ye brave

ME present relatiie strength of the rival
Pettis and Finney wings of-the Republican
party in Crawford county was shown on the
vote in Convention for Chairman of the Co.
Committee—Mr. IL Henderson, who , has
distinguished himself as a friend of Judge
Pettis's, receiving 4G votes to 1t for Mr. F.
C. Peck, an equally ardent supporter of Con
gressman Finney.
AN the election in Washington city, every
black man voted without hindrance, but the
boys in blue were not allowed the same privi
lege. Judge Carter, Radical, decided that the
Soldiers bad a legal right to vote, but recom
mended General Grant to order that no soldier
leave the barracks_on election day. General
Grant declined interfering and forty soldiers
voted the white man's ticket.
Tim Radicals of Crawford county have

Pettis received all the votes cast for Congress,
his enemies in the party ranks • not having
enough confidence in their strength to make
even a show of opposition;t Pluck always

WE invite attention to the communication
over the signature of Isaac R. Taylor, Esq.,
of Edinboro, detailing his observations (lur
ing a recent tour in the South. Mr. one
of the most intelligent men in 'the county,
and hears a reputation for vilior and integ
rity width entitles his statements to more than
ordinary consideration. Re tells his experi
ence in so plain and straightforward a man
ner, and with such an evident disposition to
allow no party bins to distort his judgment,
that few can read it without being interested
and convinced.
IKE infer from the following paragraph in
a ate copy of the Titusville Herald, that
matters about that office have become some
what "mixed." We hope our estimable
friend Bloss has not allowed, himself to be
overcome by the seductive influences of
Titusville lager:
"We iidendcd to say, yesterday, that James
Tarr, of Meadville, is announced as an inde-
Tpendent candidate for Associate Judge. Mr.
Tarr is the veritable "Jim" Tarr, of Tarr
Farm, Venango county. But what we actu
ally did say is this: 'Mr. James Larr, of
Modvill, is announced as an independent
candidate for Associate Judge. Mr. Larr
is the veritable "prim" Larr of Larr farm,
Venango county' If anybody was more as
tonished than ourselves at the result of this
typographical achievement it was undoubt
edly "Lan." himself."
- are gratified to learn that the effort to
get up a splendid celebration of the Fourth
is meeting with such unexpectedly flattering
encouragement. It is expected that the pro
cession will be the largest and most magnifi
cent ever seen in this portion of the State.
Nearly all the societies of the city have agreed
to will
. participate, and delegations of Masons
be present from many of the neighboring
cities and towns. A fire company from Buffa
lo': will parade. in addition to 'our own
file department. Dr. termer Is rallying an
immense troop of. horsemen, and promises
that the cavalcade shall beat all other -at
tempts be has made in that direction. We
know it is common on such occasions to
promise much more than can reasonably be
expected, but unless we are: deceived, the
next Fourth will be a day long to be remem
bered in Erie.
Tile "Republican", thinks the Observer is
"greatly exercised" over 'its recent editorial
.slur" upon some of the gentlemen elected to
oftlee it Ibis etattnt3 Not
sure you, Mr. "Republican." Isn't it you
who arc the "exercised" party, over having
:put your toot in It" in such a foolish and
reprelicniiblc manner. "We had no refer
em.c," sass our sagacious cotemporary, "to,
ot our patty, but to gentlemen of
the Doinocratic faith, uho folroiv 'the 'teach-;
in,p of the 011ierver, and whO in !talcs past
stepped into office in Erie county, as a result
of the dissatisfaction and consequent dissen- , .
sions in our party ranks, produced, we be-,
lieve, by the old system of making nomina-i
Lions." Now, that is good, Mr. "Republican.',
1 '6 a capital joke indeed—worthy of Davy :
Crockett or the "late lamented" martyr.",
But,doesn't it look mightily like wriggling to
get out of a tight place ? When d
_ "honest ol
Abe" found himself uncomfort ably pressed
he was always "reminded of a story." Oaf
equally "honest" cotemporary bids fair, ere,
long, to become "an adapt in polities) petti-
TITE Corry Telegraph says arrangements
have been made for a fine celebration of the
Fourth in that city, and adds : "We know we
speak the feelings of the Itepublielos when,
we say, that on their part they are only de=
sirous that the celebration shall be kept
tircly free from any political cast." We sin
cerely trust their practice may accord with
their professions. The Democrats of Cony
have been swindled on several preceding
occasions of a similar nature, and it is quite,
natural that they should hesitate somcrhnt
before lending their co-operation to the presr
cut movement. • Let them secure adequate
pledies that no polities of any kind shall be
permitted to interfere with the harmony of
the proceeding,s, and then take off theircOati
and help to make the celebration a success.
THE Democrats of Edinboro have organ
ized a Campaign Club, with the following
"live men" for officers : President, I. C. Wil
son ; Vice President, Charles Shermani
Secretary, S. E. Phipps ; - Treasurer, a a
3lcLaughrey ; Finance Committee, G. A. Al
len, C. F. Sweet, John T. Reeder. Over
thirty members united themselves with the
organization at the first meeting, and it prom
ises to become .a valuable auxiliary in the•
cause. Let the example of the Edinboro
Democracy be imitated in every portion of
the county.
TILE Crawfortl County Radical Convention
adopted the following resolution, which we
hope to see - imitated by all the political as
semblages held in Western Pennsylvania
during the present year:
"Whereas, This county is largely interested
in the enlargement of the Erie Canal ; there

"Resulted, That our Senators - and Represen
tatives be instructed to use every honorable
means, by their votes and action in_the elec
tion of Speaker, and in forming the com
mittees, to obtain from the State the assis
tance needed for the prosecution and com
pletion of the work."
ONCE more, we urge upon the Democrats
of our city and county to commence :making
their preparations for themomentona_esra
palgn before us, We cannot begin too soon.
Delays are no less dangerous in politics than
in the ordinary affairs of life. The rank and
file aro ready for work,.if the leading men
will initiate the necessary measures. What
active Democrat in each of the districts will
put himcPlf at the head of the column, and
commence the necessary steps for athorough
~ rgattization throughout the county?
Geo. A. :taxes, Esq., of Edinboro, was
drained to the practice of law in Meadville,
Ist week; after passing a highly, creditable
examination. Mr. Allen is one of the most
active, intelligent and high toned Democrats
in the county, and ave predict that he will
make his mark as an attorney. We trust
that he may conclude to locate in Erie, as he
thinks some of doing. We need a few men
of his energetic stamp to help infuse tnore
life into our city Democracy.

Ox Saturday, May . 80, Mrs. Wm. Thomp

completely happy by presenting him with
three fine boys, reighing together twenty

was in attendance, and the mother and
children are doing finely. Who can beat
that ?— Wooster Republiean.
Who in the deuce, do you suppose, would
want to "beat" it? '
JCIXIING by the following paragraph from
the Lock Haven Democrat that lively little
town is bound to keep up its reputation for
enterprise :
"Besides the triplets last week, born in this
place, another singular birth occurred. It
was that of twins, one of whoni had a double
face, namely, four ever, two noses, and two
mouths. This singular creature was still
born, but the other is a fine healthy child."
Tim Corry Republican prints the ibllow
ing as a verbatim copy of an epitaph on a
tombstone in Spring, Crawford county:
"Death comes to all
Both great and small
As in this case loth seem ;
This little lad
Came to his end
By the swallowing of a bean."

to their political, finitude', Monti and reli

the truth by actual end personal observation.

teem Gov. Pletpaint end Hawkinirst, down

gious meetings of: various denominetkns,
both black and, white.; I, visited some of the
colored schools, the army quarters, and saw
the. congregatid masses of her sable sons
and darightera, assembled at the menagerie
and circus. I visited the scenes and heard
the debates in far of the. mongrel conven
tions,wheretheYirere fhiining constitutions,
in Richmond, Raleigh, Charleston and Atlan
ta. I took time to mature ray observations
and opinions, as far as it was possible, upon
all the variant. topics _ relative to Southern
therater and reconstMetion policy: What
latudlitay in this conimaicaticm will mostly
relate 'to - thk r- political issues of the day, oc
casionally Mailing upon other topics as
they incidentally present 'themselves. The
great' object, however, shall be- to set the
Northern mind right with regard to the
tkiuth in a political point of view. -
Tho Seuth presents one vast Add of deso
lation.- The ravages of war, together with
the lack, for years, of reliable manual labor,
makes every place look most gloomy indeed.
Almost the entire people are bankrupt, but
few being able to pay their debts. They
planted a large breadth of cotton last year,
but it produced not more than half a crop.
Prima ruled low, most of the planters having
to self their qotion at from nine to - eleven
cents per pound. It took at least one-fifth
of this to pay the tax, leaving en insufficient
amount for the planter to ply his - hands.
Members of the several conventions, seeing
this financial embarrassment, shrewdly in
corporated into.-their several constitutions
'stay kiwi whicheonstituted the great lever
by which they carried these constitutions at
the polls. The conventions are mainly coin;
posed of neiroes and Northern political ad- ^
venturers, known as "Carpet Baggers," who
have no interests in , common with the whites
of the South. They pander to, the credulity
of the negro for' the sake of obtaining, his
vote. In some instances they impose upon
the credulity of the blacks in a shameful
manner—for instance, they sell their tickets
theniby which they are elected, for *in- ;
ty-five cents each. I was informed by the
best autheritY in Charleston that their con
vention was composed of more than one-halt
negroes x and the balance, except three, were
Northern Men, among them a great number
of Abolition preachers. Only three white
native South Carolinians in ale,gislative body
of some one hundred and thirty or forty
members, to make laws for the people of
South Carolina, 'is simply preposterous !,
This rule wilt not hold good in all the con
ventions I visited, but I think the negroes
and Nortitelvi whites control them by a large
The condition of the negro in the entire
South is, anything but pleasant and desirable.
He has the name eliberty, to be sure, but lo
be a slivetrom condition and circumstances,
atom necessity and poverty, is the most ab
ject of all slavery. Such is his condition.
He has nothing he can call his own—unused
to core for himself, improvident in the ex
treme, unwilling to confine hiniself to steady
labor, imposed upon by professed friends who
have made him promises he can never realize,-
all tend to make him the veriest slave upon
the face of the earth. Their character for
industry and honesty can be summed up in
a few words. One-half of them will about
half work, the other halewill obtain a miser
able pittance inrany way, regardless of honer
or honesty There are scarcely two opinions
in the South in regard' to their industry.. One
east in point—while "in Richmond, I roomed_
with a member of the convention, a firmer,
formerly from the State' of New York, and.
an original Abolitionist: He said, "the negro,
if you work with him, will work well, but is
almost worthless alone," and adds, "after
trying negroes, I have hired Germans to do
my work." Them are hundreds and thous-
ands of negroes unemployed, Yet the univer
sal cry is for white labor.: !The depletion Of
the negro race by death far exceeds the in
dense by natural generation. They are a
doomed ran. The fiat of the' Almighty
seems tq have stamped upon his brow de
crease, And he is destined to fade way like
the Indian hefore the superior prowess .and
intelligence of the white man, until his race
in tiditountrY becomes extinct or so exceed.;

to this, the South Carolinian gave each man

they did. Their main desire now appears to
be to resume their former standing in the
sisterhood of States, not with slavery, but
with all their . political rights, forgettinp, the
past and pressing forward to a glorious fu
In every locality I. visited,but more especi
ally in Vircinia,they were extremely anxious
that Northern people should. settle aincing
theta. One man, a Major in the Confederate
army, said :' "Any man - that has a White face."
They have no prejudices against Northern
men becnnse they are Northern men—any
man going there to parsuen r iegitimate busi
ness, no difference what his politics are, will
be received with open arms and warm hearts.
But political adventurers, who go there for
place and power by pandering to the pre
judices of the negro, and wishing to upturn
their whole religious and social fabric, arc
despised ni they. shOuld 'be, as the accursed
of God, and the offscouring of the earth.
In all my intereourse with the Southern
people, I heard no harsh or threatening
expression toward the Government, or
agitnat any of the citizens: They are uni
forirdy, more mild In their Itinipsii;go than we
are of the North hi talking orour political
opponents. Then, I say all this stuff going
the rounds of the Radical papers. about the
danger of Northern men going 'South, I be
lieve to be a base fabrication.
There' remains, then; but 'otte• More point
to discuss, viz: The necessity of the army
and -the Freedman's Mire= in the Southern
States. My former opinions were only con
firmed by my intercourse with the 'Southern
people, that the army and Freedman's
Bureau constitute a most 'iniquitous system
of legislation, designed to perpetuate 'the
reign of the party in power. 'consider there
is - no more use of an army there than there
'is-in the city of Brotherly Love. The Freed-
Man's Bureau has, undoubtedly, done, some
gpod E has mitigated some suffering. Again,
it hies done much evil. ,The poor black,has
depended WO , much for'. aid receiCed there
from, and thus indirectly it hag encourdged
Idleness. Upon the whble ills a bad system
and should never have been established, and
the sooner abolished thobetter. In vainyou
will search the record of history for a more
corrupt, venal and Iniquitous system of leg
islation than boa' been imposed upon that
people; and not only upon them, but upon
the -whole country , ; burdening the people
with hundreds of millions of debt, malting
it neemsary for the .Imposing . of taxes too
onerous to be borne, for the purpose of sus
taining army in order to keen the' Republi
can party In power.
There are no hopes of returning prosperity
in the South with the present party'in power.
There must be a change in the administni
tion polity of our Government. The Demo
cratic party must assume the reins of power.
By the Democratic party I mean that part of
the old Democracy that remained after the
Freesoil and Abolition (notions had sloughed
off, and such time-honored Whigs as indig
nantly refused to be sold out to the Abolition
party, or to enter the baptismal fount to be
christened by tho new name' of Republican.
I mean to he understood that these men, old
Whigs and Democrtits, that stand np for the
Constitution of our Eithers; - ,must resume
power, or the day of prosperity to the South
ern States is far away. The dawn of pros
perity will usher in upon us from the (lay
the groat Conservative party controls tho
fairs of the 'Nation, and brings back every
branch of our Government tq the old land
' marks of our fathers. •
I will add, in conclusion, thlit one of the
greatest mistakes ever made, is to disfranchise
the brains'and the intellect of the people and
deliver over the Government into' the hands
of the ignorant and the rabble; and .. then
look for a prosperous state of affairs. An
other mistake, perhaps equally great, is that
when the Confederate army laid down their
arms and submitted to the Federal authority
the seceding States were not permitted to re
sume•their position as States in the Union
their Representatives and Senators allowed
to take their seats in Congress, requiring no
change in their Constitutions only such as
had been made necessary in order to con
firm the proclamation made by the Presi
fent before the submission to -Federal au
thority. All those whose crimes were tbo
great to receive pardon should have been
brought to a speedy and impartial trial before
the civil courts. If this had been done the
whole machinery of government would have
long since been running smoothly. This
would have saved hundreds of millions of
dollars, and an untold amount of misery, and
suffering.' For not doing this, the party in
power is, and will be held responsible for
Consequences. Historians will so record it,
