We shall publish in onr next issue the

The motley crowd of unscrupulous politi
cians,,known to law as Congress, and to the
people as the "Rump," instead of adjourn
ing, as is customary, to the first 31ondav in
December, has taken a recess until the 21st
of September—not daring to risk the riek"ety
" Reconstruction" project to stand alone
the Presidential election. Its re-as.
hlin.r in September is made dependent on
the call of a committee, consisting of Senator
Morgan and Representative Sch„tzuk—whieh
will undoubtedly rind smne excu>es fir call
ing it together at the appointed time. When
the subject of adjournment seas disete—ed in
the lions'', Schenck proposed that Congress
should meet again in October, as , igning as a
reason that the Octobe'r elections in Penn
sylvania, Ohio and Indiana might furnish
reasons for Congressional action. He was
shained out of tlds proposal by the sharp
cross-questioning of Democratic members,
who made it difficult for him to tell what
Congress had to do with the October elec
tions in those States. But Schenck had un
warily let the cat out of the hag and disclosed
the real motive for ad autumn session The
Radicals are fully resolved to carry the Pres
idential election by 11)01 meant or fair; and
if the October elections indicate that the
Democratic party is too strong, measures «ill
be taken to prevent the counting of all the
Democratic electoral votcs. C'ongtess will
probahly meet on the 21st Of September with
a thin attendance, and keep the session alive
by adjournments from tinr to time until af
ter ,he October elections. The Republicans
will then be able to form an estimate as, to
how theiltand, and they will stick at no po

It is unneces;:ary, in this connection, to re
fer to the many outrageous- acts of the late
session, as they arc still fresh iu the minds of
the people. For the past week or two, Con
gress has been occupied principally with the
disreputable business of swearing in " carpet
baggers" and calling them Representatil es
'Prom the Southern States. In this way an
unprincipled class of Political adventurers,
representing nobody and caring for nothing,
save a raid on the Sergeant-at-Arms for com
pensation audMileage, have been admitted
from North and South Carolina, Georgia,
Abibama, Florida. Louisiana and Arkansas.
They.axe in, by virtue of the lawlcss and
unconstitutional enactments of Nordic' n
Radicals, and the latter deserve all the dis
grace and contempt that the people must

VALLANDINGIIIII has v, rittcn letter
explaining the reason:, N% hid! induec,l the
Ohi,. &legation to pros Gov. Seymour's
nomination, and denying the charge of trick
ery upon the part of the latter. He says :
"As to the manner in which the rrnina
tion was partly brought about and partly
happened, It is not proper that anything be
said further, except that positively Governor
Seymour had no knowledge or intiination of
the movement till'twenty minutes previous
to his nomination, and acted in good filth
throughout, and, moreover, will go into the
Presidential office without a single pledge or
promise of any kind made to any One preci
ous to his nomination."
Tus lleorgia Legislatureitas disappointed
the Radicals quite as badly as the neg Toes of
Missis,ippi did at the election last month.
Although that body has been claimed to have
majority in their favor, on Tuesday it went
to work and cooly. elected Joshua Hill and
H. V. 31. Miller, both Democrat; and unde
viating Union men, to , the U. S. Senate.

while they'ought to have been growing rich
and prosperous—while they ought to have
sold cotton enough abroad to pay for surplus
goods that are now weighing down our man
ufacturers and merchants. They ought to
have aided largely in paying the National
debt. Instead of that, Congress, through
Freedmen's Bureaus, has been issuing mil
lions of rations ta , the South, and spending
two hundred millions of dollars in various
ways to "reconstruct - States which its laws
have destroyed. Its object has been to keep

It will he holed that Mr. Sumner alleges
that he is willing to " welcome the election
of a competent representative of the colored
rare to either House of Congress," a inagnan- .
itnity which is only paralleled by Artemus
Ward's willingness to sacrifice all his wife's
relations in the late war to suppress the re
bellion for the welcome is limited to the
election of a competent colored man, whilC
his credentials, both in respect of color and
competency, as Mr. Sumner well knows,
would stand a very pour chance of accept
ance by a compittee of either House. No
one will believe that Sumner is sincere till
he writes a letier of the same purport to the
next Legislathre of Ma,sachusetts,
that body to elect it negro in the place of
Charles Sumner, whose term as United States

The most improbable stories are being put

weakness. The Democratic party can laugh
at these weak inventions of the enemy. The

for any such person or persons to offer to
vote. "The second and third sections impose
penalties upon election officers for receiving
such votes, and upon those disqualified, as
affiresaid, for voting or offering to vote. The
filth and sixth sections prescribe what shall
he the evidence of desertion and consequent
disqualification, declaring it to be not the
record of conviction and sentence, but certi
fied copies of rolls and records, containing
official evidence of the fact of the desertion
of all per.ons who wefe citizens of the Com
monwealth, and who were deprived of citi
zenship and disqualified by the said act of
Congress. The act thus denies the rights of
an elector to all who, tinder the act of Con
•gress, have been registered as deserters from
the military service of the United States, even
though they have not been tried, convicted
and ,enteneed for the offence. It attempts
to disfranchise those who arc enfranchised
by the fundamental raw of 11Th Common
wealth, audit enacts what shall be the evi
dence of disfranchisement. It is not, it does
not profess to be, a regulation of the mode of
exercise of the right to an elective franchise..
It is a deprivation of the right itself. Ow
then, the Legislature tithe away from an
elector his right to vote, while he possesses
all the qualifications required by the Qmsti-
Union ? This is the question now before us.
When a citizen goes to the polls on an elecs
tipn day, with the Constitution in his hand,
and presentsdt as giving him a right to vote,
On he be told : "True, you have- every
qualification that instrument requires. It
declares yffit entitled to the right of an
elector, but nu net of Assembly forbids your
vote, and thereffire it cannot be, received 1"

lime spare of one whole next berore the
day of eleetioh tbr Itepre,entatives, and paid

that an elector who slit told rest ive any gift or
reward for his vote, in meat, drink, ninnies
or otherwise, should forfeit his right to elect
for that time, and suffer such other penalty
ai future laws should direct. • On the first of
11 an act was passed requiring elec
tors to take the oath of allegiance. But the
history of the time shows us that this act was
strenuously resisted as unwarranted by the
Constitution, mal.within a very brief period
it nas swept-awae from the statute book-
The Constitution of 1790 followed. It left
mit the provision of that of 1776 respecting
15ribery. But in 1799 an act of Assembly
was passed enacting the omitted provision
iii the words used in 1776. Disfranchise
ment under it was never enforced, so far as I
know; and it.conl4 hardly have been, for
the offence was not complete until the vote
vos given. Since the Constitution of 1838
was adopted, the general election law, passed
in 1839, enacted that the votes of persons

practice ; anti the provisions of the l`cmslitu

_hold, therefore, that the act of Assembly of
Time 3, 1866, could not disfranchise thd
plaintiff, and that it did not justify the de
fendants in refusing his vote.. According to
the agreement of the parties hrthe case sta

Ttm St. Louis Democrat, in noticing the
arrival of General Grant in that city, says,
"it is his wish to escape altogether for a time
from the weariness and care of public affairs,
and to enjoy a season of relaxation with his
family." it is not the intention of the peo
ple to increase the amount of public affairs
entrusted to the care of General Grant and
Id ,- season of "relaxation" will be -materi
ally lengthened aft6r the November election.
TUE New York Round Table, a literary
journal with Republican tendencies, makes
the following admission: •
"If we closely compare and weigh the two
present candidates, Grant and Seymour, and
are able to consider their merits apart front
political bias, it is impossible - to deny that
the latter, by natural intellectual powers, by
education, by social culture, hy'experience of
public affairs; is infinitely the titter man of
the two to be President of the United States.
THAD. STEVE Ng predicted that if Impeach
ment failed, the Radical candidate for Presi
dent would ho Nuominiouslylicaten nt the
election ; and John. W. 'orney, in
one of his '!Occasional" letters to the
declared that unless Andrew Johnson was
rembved, the Radicals would not carry six
States.. We believe the predictions of Ste
vens and I•'orney will conic true, not solely
because impeachment has failed, but be
cause the people are sick and tired of Radi
cal rule.
Ton Radical newspapers generally appear
to think their readers have no sense, and
that it is only necessary to abuse the Demo
cratic candidates... Thurlow Weed, the
shrewdest Republican politician in the coun
try, entertains a very different opinion. Ile
says. in the New York Commercial:
"Govtmor'Seymour is not to be beaten by
being called a copperhead, or Frank Blair to
be distanced In the race because he is called
a revolutionist. Ridicule Seymour as some
Republican journals may, he is the most pop
ular man in the Democratic party."
Tut.: New York Sun, a leading independent
. paper of New York, speaking of the shame
less lies now being circulated by Radical
journals in regard to Horatio Seymour, is
forced to caution them that their falsehoods
will be all exploded to the great ultimate
damage of their party. It says :
"We trust that in .common fairness they
will not attempt to conceal the fact that dur
ing the same period-,Governor Seymour
promptly furnished all the troops 'balled for
from the State of New York, and even re
ceived the special thanks of President Lin
coln for this timely aid, and for the cordial
feeling manifested in his communications to
_the National Government.'.'
No wonder the N. Y. Tribune is in such a
rage. Its party have forced upon it a candi
date who in the opinion of its editof-ih-chief,
is bound to be beaten. Greeley-, in the Tri
bune of November 7,1667, thus discoursed
concerning the proposed nomination of
"The war 'being over, we can no longer
carry elections by reading - bulletins of Union
victories and exhorting the people to 'rally
round the Plug.' And those pushing Gen.
Grant for President will land where the
Whigs di.l with Scott in 185'2, if they are al
lowed to have their own way. They utterly
inktahe the time of day."
Tim Pitt'.burgh Post i•ays : "We have it
from undoubted authority that the hands hi
one of our I.trgest iron mannliteturingystab
lishments, numbering between four and five
hundred nwm have determined to vote
against Grant and the bondltiilders this fall.
Heretofore, there have been but few Demo
cratic t 'voters among them, and whenever
Pittsburgh had a Republican demonstration,
the men and teams of said establishment
took an active and prominent part. The
workingmen art , getting their eyes open.

of the principal dealers in Grant medals in

Tan New York correspondent of the
Louisville Democrat has had an interview
with Judge Chase, who is thus leported :
"As to the resultin November next, he
fully expresses his conviction that the
chances are decidedly in favor or the Delm
er:lir nominees—provided there is noeheat
inLr round the bo.u•d. The Edmunds Bill
regulating the Southern electoral votes, lie
looks upon as a foreshadowing of tinitplay,
and the Democrats are advised to keep their
eyei on it accordingly. Blair's letter he says,
is simply up to the exigencies of the times.
Ile sees nothing revolutionary in it. On the
contrary, he is.inclined 'to think that it aims
to stop the revolution, which the admission
of carpet-bag Senators is undoubtedly work
ing in our form of government."
Timm is what the Milwaukee Wisconsin,
a strong Radical paper, says of Governor
Seymour :
"The nomination of Seymour, under the
circumstances, is the strongest one that could
have been made. He is a gentleman in his
address, most popular and winning in his
ways, and has secured thousands - of warm
friends by his personal attractions. In truth
be Is a winsome man, and may be considered
as respectable a representative of the modern
Democratic party as could be obtained in the
present exigency.- Personally we have
known Mr. Seymour for many yours. In our
early life we saw him almost daily, and we
have nurtured a strong esteem fo r his . genial
and gentlemanly qualities, and fi ir the credi
table Manner in which he appears in all pub
lic positions."

they are going actively to work to turn it in
the right direction :

to try conclusions with them on this point,

the West, where its real strength is, if any
where, is shown by the thoroughly fright
ened Cleveland, Ohio, Lcader, which says:
"The State of Ohio was carried lot the Re

thousand Majority. A change of one vote to
the Democracy from the Republicans in each
ward and township of the State would wipe
out that majority and give the State to the
Democracy. Let Ohio Republicans ponder
this. Let them consider that they are as yet
by no means out of the wilderness."
TitE Morning Post, olio of Philadelphia's
most enterprising Radical sheets, gives up the
.fight in the following strain:
"The national prestige of Grant :ind Col
fax, the'soundncss and equity of Republican
principles, the political speeches of eminent
statesmen, and public processions; and
