GREAT DEMOCRATIC GAIN IN VER.
It turns out, as we expected, that the Ver
mont election, over which the poor Radicals,
unaccustomed as they haie been of late to
encouraging results, have worked themselves
into a frenzy of delight, is really a gratifying
event for the Democracy. The estimate of
the Radical State officials places their major
ity at a round 27,000, which is a Democratic
gain of over 2,000 since Lincoln's election,
the last ulten a full vote was secured. The
State for many years has been hopelessly
given over to everything anti-Democratic, lit
tle effort is ever made on the part of our friends,
the people are . domestic In their habits, but
little affected by the varying eurents of pop
ular opinion and stubbornly set in their party
notions, and yet %%ILI' nil theseisireuniqtances
to contend against the Democratic cause
progre:lSCS at a ratio that In Pennsylvania
would give us twenty ttuatmand majority.
'rite vote cast this year is larger by some
thousands than that at the Presidential elec
tion of isut, of which it is calculated that
the Radicals gain about twenty and the Dem
ocrats forty per cent. • We have also secured
some thirty-seven members Of the Legisla
ture, one-half more than we hid last year.
A few victories like this would unseat the
Radical party entirely, and leave it nothing
to fall back upon but the uncertain negrO
vote of the South. Let them rejoice while
they can, for the day of their glory is rapidly

A comparison of the pulilic debt state

The debt bearing currency interest has in

amount of currency on hand has decreased

crease is principally due to the payment of
the Alaska purchase, and the. large issue of
bonds to the Pacific Railroad; but let the
cause be what it may, the tact that our debt
is steadily growing larger every- month will
be viewed with alarm by all who seriously
consider the condition of the country.

Hon. ThOmns H. Seymour, which occurred
at his residence in Hartford, Connecticut, at

was Governor of Connecticut for several
years, and the Amencan Minister to Russia
during the administration of President
Pierce. In politics he was an unwavering
Democrat, able, learned, eloquent and up

NEGRO LEGISLATORS EXPELLED.
. _ . „
In the House of Ilipie4trktatives bf the re- -
constructed Legisklure of Plorida, on Friday
last, atter a strong discussion of several days,
a resolution was passed by a vote of eighty
to twenty-three, declaring, under the new
Radical State constitution - accepted by Con
gress, the negro members of the body—twen
ty-five in number—ineligible on account of
their race and color. Four doubtful Mem
bers remained, Who claimed to be white men ;
but their cases are to be investigated. With
the announcement of the vote the expelled
negro members rose and left the hall, bowing
to the Speaker and waving their hats to the
House as they retired. The closing speech
on the question Of expulsion was made . by a
black member named Turner—and a strong
and somewhat startling speech it was, too—
in defence of his,equal rights on the floor.
As- ho retired he brushed the dust from his
feet as an expression of his contempt and as
a declaration of war against the combination
which had expelled him.
The reports of the proceedings rest-thing
in this expulsion of these colored legislators
are not very clear as to the composition of
this anti-negro white vote. It seems. though,
that the question was first started by the
Democratic members ; that the Southern !Nun
Radicals united with them to the extent of de
claring the blacks incompetent to vote on the
question of their right to seats in the House ;
and that the only members favoring their
retention on the final vote were the "carpet
baggers" from,the North. A movement to ex-
Pei the negro members of the Senate had not
been successful up to the date of writing this
article. Until we learn further particulars, we
can give no opinion on the justice or proprie
ty of this step, but as the case stands now it
looks like ,an unnecessary and impolitic
course of action, which will only tend to re
vive the passions and prejudices of the dom-
Since the above was in type, we Lave
received the .M.ac . on (Ga.) Telegraph, which
cites the following clause of the Constitution
as the authority upon which the House acted
in expelling the negro members:
"The Convention hereby re-enacts 'all acts
passed since the 19th day of January, 1801,
including that body of laws known as the
Code of Georgia, and the acts amendatory
thereof as passed since that time, which said
code is embodied in the printed book known
as Irwin's Code."",
This clause e , ..tablisluS,- says the Macon
Telegraph, all the old legislation of the State
not inconsistent with the Constitution of the
Crated States and of Georgia. As the code
allows none but white men to hold °thee, the
Legislature has merely obeyed its provisions
in turning the negroes out.
GOLD VS. GREEISIDACKS.
The New York Tribune states that, after
Grant is elected, "Congress will declare all
the 'hinted debt of the United States payable
in golci."and silver at maturity ;" that it will
issue a new consol bearing four per cent. in
terest, and that the bondholders will be very
glad to exchange their six per cent, bonds'
for a security drawing one-third less in
terest. We do not believe that in case of
Grant's election the rate of interest will be
reduced, but SupPOsing the plan of the Tri
bune is adopted, what will be its
effect? The debt of the country is-now $2,-
600,000,000, some $2,200,000000 of which is
in the shape of bonds. If that is payable in
gold it makes a difference of $866,000,000 in
favor of the bondholder, so that the debt, in
stead of being $2,600,000,000, is, according to
the republican demand, over $3,400,000,000.
The people arc taxed $866,000,000 more if
Grant and Colfax are elected than they will
be if Seymour is our next President. • Gree
ley says, in effect, to the bondholders "I will
give you in case you elect Grant; $866,000,-
000 more than your bonds call for, and will
levy additional taxes to that amount upon
the people." On the other hand, the Demo
cratic party expressly declares that the
bonds shall be paid in strict accordance with
their terms; that whenever they Mae not by
law or contract made- payable in coin they
shall be paid in the lawful currency of the
country—in the currency that was loaned to
the Government—in the cuirency the Gov
ernment pays to all butt privileged creditors.
If the people desire to add thirty-three per
cent. to the 'present burden of taxation, they
will vote for Grant and Gold for the holders
of bonds which ere now payable' in green
TEE BATTLE BROU3iIL
It is reported, from good authority, that a
meeting of the Radical National Com
mittee was lately held in Washington to
consult over the prospects of the canipaign,
and decide upon the best course to
pursue. It was agreed that no power
could take New York•frotn Seymnour&Blair,
and that labor and money used in that State
would only be thrown away. They; titerefure,
resolved todevote all their energy and money
to Pennsylvania and Ohio in the OctOber
election, and carry them, if possible. We
may conclude that no amount of means,
energy or skill will be left unemployed to
accomplish this purpose, and prepare to con
test the ground accordingly. Democrats of
of Pennsylvania! are you ready for the "work
before you? On the verdict of your State is
staked the momentous issues of the cam
paign, and it becomes you to sed that noth
ing is 'left undone that will contribute to a
victory for the rights of the people.
A SORRY PICTURE.
According to the statement of Dr. Delmar,
Director of the Rumen of Statistics at Wash
ington, the .total tonnage of mar merchant
marine is 3,563,028 tons, without reckoning
the loss of vessels during the last year, which
would not vary the estimate much. In 1860,
the year ',dine the war, we had over 5,353,-
868 torts. We lost, therefore, during the past
right years. about
. 1,800,000 tons. England
gained in de same time s,ooo.ooo—that is,
her tannage increased from 4,000,000 to
9,000,000. The mercantile marine of France
grow in that period from 1,500,000 to 3,000,-
000 tons. The tonnage of England has more
than doubled, that of France about doubled,
and that of the United States . has declined
more than a third. This is a very humilia
ting stato of things, and ought to arouse the
people to a sense of the injury that Radical
measures are inflicting upon their most im
In our last issue we gave ari account, at
some length, of the visit of Gen. Rosecrans to
Gen. Lee, and other - prominent Southerners,
at White Snlphur Springs, Va. Since then,
the result of this mission has speared, in the
shape of a correspondence between the two
distimmished officers, which ought to be Care
fully and calmly read by every citizen in the
country. Gen. Roseerans addresses a letter
to Lie,,in which he expresses his conviction
that the ft.Tlings and purposes of the Southern
people are much misrepresented at the North,
and ' adds a desire to have her representative
men place the truth before the public in a
shape that will admit of no dispute. He says: .
"I want to ask you, in whose purity and
patriotism I here express unqualified confi
dence, and as many good men as.yon can con
veniently consult, to say what you think of
it and also what you are willing to do about '
it. I want a - written expression of views that
can be followed by &concurrence of action.
I want to know if you and the gentlemen
who will Join in that written expression are
willing to pledge the people of the South to
a . chivalrous and magnanimous devotion , to
restoring peace and prosperity to our comb
mou country. I want to carry that pledge
high above the level of party politics to the
late officers' end soldiers - of the Union army
and the people of- the North and West, and
to ask them to consider it and to take the
necessary action, confident that it will meet
with a response so warm, so . generous and
confiding that we shall-see ut its sunshine
the rainbow. of peace in our political sky,

WHITE t t - iettrtios, Aug. 26.
GestnitAt —I have had the honor to re
ceive your letter of this date, and in accord
ance with 'your sug,gestrdn I have conferred
with tauumber of gentlemen from the South,
_judgment I have confided and
who are well acquainted with the public sen
timent of their respective States. They have
kindly consented to unite with me in reply:
rug to your communication, and their names
will be found with my own appended to this
answer. • .
With exnlatintiOn we proceed to give
to you a candid statement of what we believe
to be the sentiment of the Southern people
in regard to the subject to which you refer.
Whatever opinions may have prevailed in
the past in regard to African slavery or the
right of a State to secede (mm the Union, we
believe we express the almost unanimous
judgment of the Southern people when we
declare that they consider that those ques
tions were decided by the war and that it is
their intention in good faith to abide by that
decision. At the close of the war the South
ern people laid down their arms and sought
to resume their former relations with the
United States Government. Through their
State conventions they abolished slavery and
annulled their ordinances of secession, and
they returned to their peaceful pursuits with
a sincere purpose to fulfill all their duties
under the Constitution of the United States,
which they hail sworn to support. If their
action in these particulars hall been met in a
spirit of frankness and cordiality we believe
that ere this old irritations would have
passed away anti the wounds inflicted by the
war would have been in a great measure
healed. As far as We are advised the people
of the South entertain no unfriendly feeling
towards the Government of the United
States; but they complain that their rights
under the Constitution are withheld from I
them in the administration thereof.
The idea that the Southern people arc
hostile to the negroes and would oppress
them if it were in their power to do so is en
tirely unfounded. They have grown up in
our midst, and we have been accustomed
from childhood to look upon them with
kindness. The change in the relations of the
two races has brought no change in our feel
ing toward them. 'They still constitute the
important part of our laboring population.
Without their labor the lands of the South
would be comparatively unproductive. , With
out the employment which Southern agri
culture affords they would be destitute of
the means of subsistence and beconie pau
pers, dependent on public bounty. Self-in
terest, even if there were no higher motives,
would therefore prompt the whites of the
South to extend to theaegroes care and pro
tection. The important fact that the two
races are, under existing circumstances, nec
essary to each other is gradually becoming
apparent to boor; and we believe that but
tin influences exerted to stir up the passions
of the negroes the relations of the two races
would soon adjust themselves on a basis of
mutual kindness and 'advantage,
It is true that the people of the South, to
gether with the North and West, are for ob
vious reasons opposed to any system of laws
which would place the political power of
the country in the hands of the negro race.
But this opposition springs from no feeling
of enmity, but from a deep seated conviction
that at present the negroes have neither the
intelligence nor other qualifications which
are necessaryto make them safe depOsitarres
of political power. They would inevitably
become the victims of demagogues, who for
selfish pdiposes would mislead them to the
serious injury of the public.
The great want of the South is peace.
The people earnestly desire tranquillity 'and
the restoration of the Union. They depre
cate disorder and excitement as the most ,
serious obstacle to their prosperity. They
ask a restoration of their rights under the
Constitution ; they desire relief from oppres-H
sive misrule. Above all, they would appeal 1
to their countrymen for the re-establishment
in the Southern. States of that which has
justly been, regarded as the birthright of
every Ameriemi—the right of self govern
ment. Establish these on a firm basis and
we can safely promise on behalf of
of the!Southern people that they will faith
fully obey the Constitution and laws of the
United States, treat the negro with kindues
and humanity and fulfil every ditty incum
bent on peacefhl citizens loyal to the Consti
tution of their country.
We believethe above contains a succinct
reply to the general topics embraced in your
letter ' and we venture to say on behalf of
the Southern people and of the officers and
soldiers of the late Confederate arm) that
they will concur in all the sentiments which
we have expressed.
' Appreciating the patriotic Motives which
have prompted your letter and reciprocating
your expressions of kind regard we have the
honor to hie very respectfully and truly,

Andy Johnson is a worse traitor than Jell:
Davis. lie has destroyed the peace of the
nation by trying to keep Congress from vio
lating their oaths; and enacting laws that
prevent the restoration of the Union. Tie
adopted the . policy of the martyr Lincoln,
and for that deserved,ni he received, the in-.
dignation of all truly loyal men. Ills vetoes
have been unanswerable documents, and he
ought to be hated because he sent them.
What is the reason - these Copperheadh.oP
pose our Philo) , of reconstruction ? Is it be
cause. after three years of peace, the Union
is still unreslored ? liavn't we given the nc
groas the privilege to vote, while we refuse
it to theca in Ohio and Kansa3? Ain't all the
intelligent rebels deprived of their right to
phrticipate in the Government under which
they live? Don't our papers still tell yon the
South is unsafe to live in, though we have
governed it according to our own• notion for
three years? -We keep up a standing army
and a Freedmen's Bureau there, which gives
thousands of, our friends fat situations at
large salaries. , For all these blessings let us
be thankful, as truly loyal men always are.
What if they do cost millions of money?
The nation is rich, and can well afford to
pay. If we halm spoilt a great deal to keep
up negro schools, and feed, and clothe, and
doctor the black people, It la more than hal
tmeeti by the fact that they vote'-as WC• tell
them. The whitemen elf the Sitinth dislike
our partiotall,iVe punish them accordingly.
A brave and free people can best `show their
magnanimity by depriving their conquered
foes of all the privileges of liberty. It is a
sure way to make them love the Govern

things cost, and who pay the tales, h - tiCI
know he is a Copperhead, tifitrwilrgiVe'no
attention to him. See what we have done to
benefit the country. Wc have-built up a debt
of three thousand millions, which is increas
ing daily. Perfidious England can no longer
boast that she has a bigger debt or pays more
taxes than we do. Our system or National
Banks is the best system ever devised to keep
the people under' the heels of the money
power. We leave the rich bondholder go
free of taxation, and get our revenues from
the working-men, who arc such fools they
don't know they pay them. Glorious Xmcr
heal thrice ha'ppy land!
I am a Democrat ; so is Ben Butler and
Simon Cameron. We arc all betti.r Demo-
emts than any I know of. It IS a proud thing
to be a Democrat, bit the party is not the
genuine thing now-a-days. Several millions
left us, and we are all that remain to keep up
the honor of the party.
Fellow citizens: vote for Grant, who can
talk horse and will have no policy to prevent
us from robbing the treasury and breaking
the Constituton just as we want to. Vote for
,Colfax, who will smile with delight at our
nice little tricks to cheat the people. Vote
against that traitor, Horatio Seymour, who
sustains the Constitution, and sent more
troops to the war than any other Governor.
Curse Frank Blair, who fought in the army
four years, and wants to get up another war
by abolishing our lawless proceedings and
exposing our stealings from the Government.
Stand by the Declaration, that hallowed in
strument, which says all governments derive
their power from the consent of the gov
erned. The i:111011 built upon bayonets is
ever dear to us, and we will never consent
.that it shall be surrendered to these horrible
Copperheads who *ant it to be cemented in
the bonds of love, and equal and exact justice
to every section.
' All truly loyal men will do what they can
to keep up the passions created by the war.
It is so much easier to maintain a govern
ment in which the people of one portion cor
dially halo those of the other, than one linked
together by mutual respect, that we,must do
our best to engender bad feeling and - propiotc
suspicion between the .loath and South. Our
party necessities absolutely require, fellow
citizens, that we should const4k4y remind
the people of the war. Unless we do, they
may begin listening to these nasty,Copper
heads—they may investigate the Goirernment
expenses, the bond question, and other things
we don't want them to know—and then
"farewell to all our greatness," Hate your
neighbors! Do evil to those who advocate
your best interests. If a Copperhead kisses
your cheek, lilt up your foot, and kick him
on the sensitive part of his body. Vote to
keep us in office, and—

THE Lebanon Advertiser charges that
Henry L. Cake, the Radical candidate for
Congress in the Schuylkill and Lebanon Dis
trict, has obtained from Washington a large
contract fur coal, fair the government, at an
advance orally cents per ton over and above
what any one else would 'furnish it for. This
nice little cirfafttiattent was made to aid him
in securing a re-election.
NINETSD; negroes, ono hundred carpet
baggers, and Joe. Brown, the rebel Governor
of Geergia and the founder and supporter of
the Andersonville prison pen, were mem
bers of the Chicago Radical Convention
which nominated U. S. Grant. Of coarse
every soldier citizen will be drawn towards
the Radical nominee by this fact. How can
a Union soldier vote for the war Governor of
New York, Horatio Seymour, against the
candidate of the rebel Governor, Joe Brown,
the fouridex of the Andersonville prison ?

now conies ant that that sentence in reality
does not belong to tho , letter at all, but was
inserted by thfiqollowingeurious mistake:

that thete should be no doubt about its origi

naturally tried to make' sense of it, and so

sprang this famous Saying.
qto. R. PI7GII expressed a pretty
universal sentiment at the Cincinnati
cation meeting, when he said : "They (the
Radicals) are afraid that the Democratic
party is going to preeiritate the country into
another war. Weil, you may count me out.
do not want to see another war as, long as
I live, or at least until this debt is paid."
We also wish to be counted out. We assist

of both sections got up seven years ago ; lAA
we give the Radical party divine notice now
that, if they start another, they need nokrely
on Democratic help a second time.
Tnans.resides in the city of Pittsburgh a
gentleman - who served str years in'the rebel
army, and was in that army until the rebel
lion ended in the surrender to General Sher
man. In conversation with a Radical, a few
days sincikhe informed Mr. Radical that he
was going to vote at the corning election.
"I swear yoit , shan't," replied Mr. Radical ;
"no rebel shall vote in Amesylvania if I can
help it." "But I tell pall I Shall vote, and I
shall'irotelbr Grant:" that -alters the
case, and I have no objection to your voting,
for you are a loyal man." This is the test of
,loyalty among the Radicals:

BEFORE the war the cost of the Navy . De
partment was less than thirteen millions per
year. Then the shipping interests of the
country were fully protected on every sea in

That was first-elass•evitlence that he had no
