W. H. ENT, of Columbia Co
THE President's veto of the bill declaring
Georgia, South and North Carolina, Alaba
ma:Louisiana and Florida to be entitled to
representation in Congress
,was received
in the House on lune 23th. Without any
discussion, the 'House at once passed the bill
over Vac veto by a party vote and Awns sent
to the Senate and passed there also by a par: ,
ty vote. It was not an hour after the bill
was returned before it waS.enacted into a
law, the objections of the President to
. the
contrary notwithstanding.
The Radicals in their Chicago Convention
declawd in favor of "economy." That was
mere buncombe—mere talk to humbug the
people with. Look at:their professions. Last
week the Radical Congress voted one million
dollars extra compensation to the clerl in
the various departments at Washington.
Nice party to talk about "economy." Gen.
Grant, who is the candidate on the "economy"
platform, has written 11 letter to the Commit
tee on Military Affairs, recommending a re
newal of the law increasing the pay of army
officers thirty-three and one-third per cent. !
The General's recommertilation would, of
course, increase his ono enormous pay!
General Grant's pay is now larger than that
received by any officer of the General Gov
ernment, but still he is willing to take more
off a people who are already borne down by
a frightful load of taxation.
EACH of the bogus Southern Constitutions,
t reattA under the dictation of Federal bayo
nets, contain; a clause similar to the fol
lwing from that of Alabama. How ninny
nom who vote the : Radical ticket would be
‘‘,illing to take the oath required?' • What
proportion of the Republicans wild voted
against negro suffrage in Ohio, Kansas, lowa
and Connecticut would .peaceably consent to
have a provision forced upon them similar to
that imposed on the white citizens of the
South . ' By its:adoption, a large majority of
Northern citizens would lie practic ally dis
franchised, in case they chose to remove in
to the Southern States :
"All persons /before Yegistering must take
and suhscribc to the following oath : 'I, —,

Mr. W. H. Syiris, of Philadelphia, the
head of the Workingmen's organization in
this State, and a gentleman of more than or
dinary attainments, writes to the People's
Weekly, organ of the Workingmen of Wash
ton, a:, follows:
"FIIILADEIXIIIA, May 23, 1868.
"FRIEND GREEN—I have frequently said
there was no hope for the industry of the
nation in the Republican party. That was
clearly demonstrated at Chicago. Wall
_street run the whole concern,' and bound the
party, body and soul, to the money swindlers.
The platform adopted at Chicago is nn
lt to every workingman in the country,
and an outrage upon common sense. They
ihvor a reduction of taxation, and recom
mend measures that make• any reduction in
14xation an impossibility. The great land
and labor reform questions are ignored alto
gether. They p/edge their !syinpathy with
all the oppressed people' who are struggling
tbr their rights,' and repudiate the claims of
the oppressed people at home, whciare strug
gling for their rights, and starving while they
• Ur. Sylris says truly that there is no "hope
1;)r the industry of the nation in the Repub
lican party." . That party has taken under
its e-pecial care and patronage the bond
holder, of the North, and the negroes of the
South ! Its le.tti , lation, for years, has been
solely directed for their interests. The white
laboring men of the country, whose scanty
earnings are now taxed in a thousand dif
ferent ways, are to pay the interest on th'e
twenty-two hnmlrcd millions of bonds, which
pay no taxes, and to maintain the 3,000,000
hay negroes of the South in idleness, for the
, ole- purpose of making voters of them to
.place Radical (1, enerals and fitvbrites into
office ! No wonder Mr. Sylvis says : "The
platform adopted at Chicago is an insult to
every workingman in the country !" The
working men will, at the polls, in November,
rebuke the Radical politicians, and drive
twin out oT the places they now occupy.
The Radical papers are endeavoring to
make sonic capital out of the selection of
General N. B. Forrest, the noted Southern
eavalry.blllcer, as a delegate to the National
Democratic Convention from Tennessee. To
show what manner of man he is, we give the
following extract from the General's speech
before the body wlikdt elected him to that
capacity. Whatever the General may have
been in the past, it is certain that he posses
ses sterling sense at present:
-I come here, - said he, "because I sympa
thize N\ 1111 this movement, and I have no
where else to go. I claim that if lam not a
loyal eiti7enf Tennessee and the United
States, I ought to be ; and, as an evidence of
the fact, I attach my fortunes to one of the.
great political partMs of the Union offering
me the fairest terms. I was not a secession
_ Ist. I voted against secession all my life. I
,- voted against the seccsion of Tennessee.
And when I went into the war I considered
it was my duty to do my best and I fought
four years mid 10-t all I had. Then I sun
rendered, and I did so in good faith. When
gave my parole of honor I meant it, and
,have kept it and mean to keep it. That is
why I am here to-day. I'don't either want
to :ro to the New York Convention, or not to
go there. If -you tell me to go, I'll go. If
you say stay at home, I'll be perfectly satis
. lied ; for 4 know you are my friends and will
do what is best. But lam not going to con
sider myself an outcast, or to ignore my
duties as a representative man in the emu-
munity in which I live. That community
sent me here, and I come to do my best.
The man who thinks I could go back upon
myself, or my parole, or who distrusts my
intentions, does not know me; and I will say
that, if any foreign nation should levy war on
the United States, I vt ill engage to get up a
bigger and better fighting command nut of
my grayjackets to sekye under old flag
than any - Radical in America."
" 'Dm Rev, Gilbert • Ilacen—a clerical Jen
kins— speaking of .T , chuyler Colfax, says:
- lb; face is a banqueting house." Next fall
it will be a "banquet hall deserted."
We have already stated that Congress has
voted to perpetuate the odious and expen
sive Freedman's Bureau for another year.
The Democratic minority in the Senate, un
der the lead of Mr. Hendricks, made a vigor
ous fight against this continuance of an annu
al burden of from ten to fifteen tnilhiu.,3 of
dollars upon the industrious labor of the
North, but it was no use; the Radical party
want the negro vote of the South for General
Grant in the Presidential election, and with
out the machinery of the Freedman's Bureau
and its army of carpet-bag officers, they know
they cannot secure it. The Senate had, just
before votina on the bill for continuance,
passed the omnibus act for the "admission"
of the rebel States with constitutions assert=
ing all the rights claimed for the negroes,
and declaring their competency for self-gov
ernment ; but Mr. Hendricks urged this fact
in vain to prevent the saddling of the Bureau
upon the tax - payers of the country for an
other year. The people, therefore, are called
upon to contemplate the fact that Congress,
purely as a measure to prop up the party of
the majority of that body, saddles upon them
a tax of from Ten to Fifteermillion.s of Dol
lars for the year ending June 30,1369 ! The
rebel States will be in the Union during the
year for which the negro bureau is contin
ued. Why, then, should the Federal Gov
ernment assume the keeping and care of the
millions of Southern negroes, when it does
nothing to ameliorate the condition of the
millions of white laborers In the North? It
not only does thus assume tutelage over the
Southern negroes, but, what is worst of all,
it wrings the millions expended in that:,-
Inge from the sweat and toil of our w
producing masses. There is not a laborer,
mechanic or onser producer in the Northern
States, who is not compelled, directly or in
directly,,to pay from the wages he earns a
portion of the millions expended upon the
neeo bureau. The continuance of that bu
reau by Congress for another year, that it
may gather votes for General Grant, is some
thing that workingmen should think of and
aet'upon, when they get a chance at the bal
lot' lbbx. With the Democratic party in
pi s twe'r the, negro bureau would be smashed
to pieces, andjhe lazy negroes and the army
of carpet bag officers would be left to earn
an honest living—to work out their destiny
in accordance with Mr. Lincoln's homely
maxim, uttered at the Hampton Roads Con
ference : "root hog or die.".
But this negro bureau is not the only bill
of expense upon northern labor as respects
the Southern States. The army, as well as
the bureau, is to be maintained there, after
their -admission." Tennessee has been in
the Union and represented in Congress for
the past tivo years. It is, too, a border State.
And yet we see a large standing army main
tained there under General Thomas, just the
same as armies are maintained in the States
now about to he admitted. Here is a bill of
expense of many more millions than the ne
gro bureau costs. To say nothivof the reg
ular cost of the maintenance of t army, the
"incidentals" loom up in large figures. Thus
an appropriationnf several millions was
made for the carrying out of the reconstruc
lion acts. On the very day tikt the Senate
passed the negro bureau bill, the- new Seere
tary of War sent tq the House an estimate of
‘.‘deficiencies" that would be required as fol

So, in the Unimmr out of the Union, the
Congressional 'scheme of reconstruction is
C a re
ICJ sy
the fourth year since the rebellion collapsed,
and the in power in all branch
) es of the Government had it in its hands to
restore the Union and prosperity. The,Mili
tary and the Negro Bureau were theii, we
are told, to be temporary. They have been
continued from year to year since, upon the
same plea. And now, with reconstruction
accomplished so far as the Radical scheme
can accomplish it, they are voted for the year
to come. If the Radical party is in power at
the end of that time, what reason is there to
believe or to hope that they will not be fur
-1 ther extended ?
When Lee surrendered the shattered rem
nant of his forces the 'rejoicing throughout
the entire North was general and heartfelt.
Tite masses were truly glad that the fierce
strife which had made such a heavy and
constant drain upon the blood and treasure
of the nation was over. - The return of peace
and the immediate restoration of that Union,
for the perservation of which such great
sacrifices lied been made, was confidently ex
pected. The exultant joy ofi the populace
was uninterrupted, except by the discordant
curses of a few extreme Radicals who, even
in the glad hour of our triumph, were heard
denouncing General Grant for according
generous terms to the vanquished. But the
masses fully approved what he hail done,
and Abraham Lincoln gave to his acts the
fullest official sanction. When Andrew
Johnson exhibited an impulsive vindictive
ness, after the assassination of his predecessor,
he was opposed and restrained by General
Grant. That action was noble and heroic.
After Mr. Johnson had changed his views, so
that they accorded with those of Mr. Lin
coln and General Grant, the President and
he continued to labor for the restoration of
the Union with perfect harmony of senti
ment. A tour through the South, taken for
the express purpose of observation, convin
ced Grant that those who had been leaders
in the rebellion Were acting in perfecilygood
faith, and that the work of reconstruction on
the plan originated by Mr. Lincoln and adop
ted by Mr. Johnson, was proceeding most
prosperously. When asked for an opinion
he freely expressed his views in favor of the
policy of the President, and in opposition to
that of the Radicals in Congress.
That General Grant was honest in these
his earlier acts no one can doubt. He had
no temptation then which could have induced
him to disguise or conceal the truth. He
unquestionably acted and spoke from sincere .
What a change has since come over him!
Tempted by the alluring prize of a Presiden
tial nomination, he has submitted to be made
the tool of a gang of disreputable Radical
politicians who are willing to hazard the
best interests of thenation for tlk sake of the
spoils of. office. Too week to decline the
coveted prize, he lacks the sagacity to see
that he threw away all chance of securing
it the moment he allows himself to be placed
upon a Radical platform. His wonderful
reticence has not been a shield to him. He
no sooner fully consented to allow himself to
Lensed by the Radicals than he was invol
ved by them hi a labyrinth of dirty political
trickery from which he did not come forth
without the loss of honor. HO was not only
compelled to abandon the views he bad so
long honestly held, but he was forced into a
corner from which he ... tag:aped only by -de
ceit and what looks much like downright
The revulsion in popular feeling is wonder
ful. The man whom all men respected but
a short time ago has fallen very low in.popn
lar estimation. The recent conduct of Gen.
Grant cannot be defended. No man who is
prepared to estimate what is truly honorable
can help feeling that he bas acted the dis
reputable part of a political trickster. The
reputation which he won ps a soldier has
been sadly tarnished, and he cannot expect
to he mated with any greater consideration
by his opponents than ,Chase or Wade would
be. He will carry the votes of those who
approve of the platform on which he stands,
and not one more. The Democracy do not
fear him. They feel perfectly . confldent that
he can be beatenildid they 14e thelisa•
vantage of having him pretty well tssed lip
betore the campaign is formally °med.
All that is needed to secure our success is
the exercise of proper sagncitrin selecting
candidates. The coming battle is to be
fought upon the living issues of the proscnt
year, and we should take care that nofhim•
done by us to enable our enemies to divert the
minds of the people from the great questions
which 'are stirring the popular mind to its
profoundest depths. Our candidates should
be men whose personal and political record
cannot be assailed. We must strip ourselves
of every impediment in the coming race. If
we do so, our success is absolutely_ sure.—

THE editor of the Henderson County (Illi

neat " sell" recently. He received an original
piece of poetry highly laudatory of general
Grant, which he published. The " Spectator"

with the same poem, and by giving promi
nence to the first letter in . each line, showed
it to be an acrostic, "Hurrah for Pendleton."

Ora Radical Congress are again at their
tricks of wasting the public money. The
House of Representatives lately passed a bill
increasing the salaries of the clerks in the
various departments at Washington, twenty.
per cent. This does not appear to be a very .
important matter, at first sight, hitt it becomes
of some consideration when the result of It
is known. This little bill takes the snug sum
of two millions of dollars from the public
treasury, which amount must be supplied
from the pockets of the tax-payers.
Tits Revolution hints that a national con
vention of disaffected Radicals will be held
at Chicago in September to nominate for the
Presidency " some sound man" on a platform
of universal suffrage, the "rights of labgr,
greenbacks and free trade." Such a conven
tion could not fail to attract general attention
by reason of its contrast to the other Radical
convention which met in the same city last
month, and which adopted a platform without
principles and nominated a candidate without
a policy.

io the House* of Representatiees:
In returning to the House of Represents
tatives, in which it originated, a bill entitled
an act to admit the States of North Carolina,
South Carolina, Georgia, Lordslana, and Flor
ida to representation In. Congress, I do not
deem It necessary -to state at length the rea
sons which ixonstrain mo to withheld my , ap
proval. I will not, therefore, undertake at
this time to reopen the actuation upon the
grave constitutional questions involved in
the act of March 2, 1867, and the acts sup
plementary thereto, In pursuance of which
it is claimed in the preamble of this bill that
these States have framed and adopted Con
stitutions of State Government, nor will I
repeat the objection contained in my message
of the 20th inst., returning, without my sig
nature, the bill to admit to representation
the State of Arkansas, and which are equally
applicable to the pending measure.
Like the bill recently passed in reference
to Arkansas, this bill superoul.. es the plain
and simple mode prescribed by the Consti
tution for the admission to seats in the re
spective Houses of Senators and Represents
tires from the several States. It imposes
conditions which are In derogation of the
equal rights of the States, and is founded up
on a- theory which is subversive of the
fundamental principles of the Government.
In the case of Alabama, it violates the
plighted faith of Congress by forcing upon
that State a constitution which was rejected
by the people, according to the express terms
of an act of Congress requiring that a ma
jority of the registered electors should vote
upon the question of its ratification.
For these objections, and many others that
might be presented, I cannot approve this
bill, and therefore return it for the action of
Congress required in such cases by the Fed
eral Constitution.

time to see some of the far West, and pos

the Mississippi. It is built on a bluff, some
sixty or seventy feet above the water, and
contains about 45,000 inhabitants. The rail
road here connects with the Hannibal & St.
Joseph road by a steam ferry over the Mis
sissippi which is one mile wide.
From Quincy to Macon is 80 miles. Ikre
there is a cross-cut railroad running from St.
Louis to St. Paul, Minnesota: Macon is des
tined to be a city of some importance. I
took the Cross-Cat road, completed as far as
Atlanta, 12 miles from Macon North ; thence
took stage to Kirksville, 25 miles, situated
on a beautiful prairie, the county seat of
Adair county. There was a,battle fought at
this point during our civil war, some of the
marks of which are still visible: - The coun
try consists of vast rolling prairies, With
skirts of timber varying from the hazel brush
to large oak. I noticed some hickory groves,
from an inch to four inches In diameter, and
from fifteen to fifty feet high ; so rapidly, do'
they grow that leaves which I plucked a
cluster of measured fourteen inches Tong by
five in width. I have seen these tender trees
bow their heads during a rain and wind
until their topmost branches would tench

The soil is a black muck, varying from six
inches to as many feet deep, underlaid with
a stiff hard pan. Alter analyzing this-Clay,
I found it to contain lime and quick sand ;
these combined prevent the water from
soaking through, and hence the necessity of

The price of land varies from four dollars
to twenty dollars per acre,according to loca

was "a right smart draw there," I must fol

a horse, I concluded that "right smart draw"
must be the horse of course ; going up to him

could I comprehend what the next animal'
would do when I crossed the creek.

Letter from New York.
NEW Warn, June 30,1808.
Dear Observer:—As the ever-memorable
birth day of the Nation approaches, the corn
ing one more especially, because looked for
in the hope that it may be a new birth
day for We country's blasted prospects, the
attention of all is centered on this great me
tropolis of our wide-spread republic. No
city, no locality has been more prompt and
enthusiastic in denionstrations of patriotism
thari New York. With little pretensions to
"loyalty," she seems to be as fully patriotic
as she is uniformly Democratic. The all-ab
sorbing topic at present is the coming ration
al convention, and how anxiously this con
gregated mass of people look to that gather
ing for the solution of the coming time of
our imperiled country how, fast the na
tion's life-blood is ebbing away,•and how un
concerned. those in power and in places of
trust !
The ardent desire of the great majority
seems to bet freedom from Military rule, and
return of civil authority throughout the land;
that there may be protection to society and
confident security in the Tight.
Delegates from the remotest points have'
already arrived. Oregon,. California and
Texas are already represented, and, Judging
from . the engagements made at the different
hotels, there will be one of the largest visit
ing crowds here, On the fourth of . July, that
ever congregated in any city of this country.
The presence of:so many strangers, together
with the usual elaborate demonstrations of
the day, will certainly make acarnival of ex•
citement and pleasure which occurs but once
in a life time. ' Without essaying to discuss
the merits and demerits of any of the promi
nent candidates before the people, your cor
respondent unhesitatingly saith that the
majority of the best read, leading Democrats;
favor the nomination of Chief Justice Chase.
There seems to exist an abundance of faith
and confidence in the honesty of their &wr
ite; that he will place himself squarely upon
the doetriiiioi the tight of States to control
the franchise and . ether loCal matters ; that
he will adhere closely to the organic law' or
the land; and thathe will favor the displac
ing of military rule and inaugurate Civil nu-'
thority everywhere. -
It is too late for Demo:Tots, nho ' e
dured so much meanness and perseeti9a
for adhering to principle, to abandon the
path of duty a moment for availability. ,
Our constant, prayerful hope is that our
convention, upon the fourth of July, wil ]give
us an out-spoken platform of principles, and
that to the ablest and most honest man may
be handed the standard. Will he bear ilgto
victory ? Let us all resolve that na WILL,
and once more will our'sky be bright with
hope for future tears. Yours,
Conneaut Towndip.

sulting from a deranged stomach,, and also
that harrassing di. asc Sick Headache, Bil

WE know there are many who scoff at,
laugh at, and designate every advertised re
medy as " Quackery," " Humbug," and pro
nounce them worthless. Such terms cannot
be truthfully applied to the medicinal reme
dies of which Dr. IL T. Helmbold, of 594
Broadway, New York, is proprietor. His
"Fluid Extract of Buchu" alone has stood
the test of science, and yet proved valuable.
It has been subject to the severe criticism of
eminent professors of pharmacy, and none of
such there are but will pronounce it an ex
cellent article, while many there are who
freely recommend it as a curative agent for
all diseases of the kidneys and urinating
organs; in addition to all this, it has been a
quarter of a century in existence, vet its sale
is constantly being increased. There are
numberless concoctions called Fluid Extract
of Buchu, hence our friends, in buying, should
be careful to ask for and get none other than
Helmbold's. Dr. Helmhold's drug and chemi
cal warehouse, at 594 Broadway, N. Y. is one
of the lions of that gay metropolis. guch of
our friends who may be there sojourning
should not fail to visit it. We can assure
them a kindly welcome from the Doctor and
all his courteous, employees.—PAlladelp/da

find that I can accomplish one-third more with
this machine than with any other I am ac
quainted with. It combines the' qualities of
lightness cheapness and durability, and is the
most perfeet harrow that I have over seen. It
can be easily changed into a cultivator for Corn
and any boy large enough to drive a tram can
readily anti easily take it apart and put It to
gether again. I most cheerfully recommend
my friends andacquaintances to buy this ma

before paying for It. I have purchased a liar

ingr that I believe it to be a very su riot- imple
ment of its, and quite wort ty the atten

itself closely to the surface of the ground, how
ever rough or uneven it may be, is, a feature of
much Importance, and one that distinguishes
this from all other Harrows. There are also
other peculiarities In its construction which
will be readily perceived by the Intelligent far
mer, and 'which will doubtless tend, ere long, to
bring it into general use. I have purcluised one
of these Harrows for use on my laud.
