Gen. JOHN W. GEARY,
OF CUMBERLAND COUNTY,
(Subject to the action of the Union Slate
Negro Suffrage—Our Position
The 1 7 ,,Itinteer devotes about two and a
half columns to a re . ily to our endorsement
of the negro-suffrage bill for the District of
Columbia. Wn concede to our neighbors
much more than their usual fairness in re
joinder. We are not materially misrepre
smted more Allan twice and this shows nn
improvement in their manner of conducting
a controversy much greater than we antici
pated. Still as there aro misrepresentations
and as we will likely have the subject on
hand for some time, we deem it advisable to
state distinctly again the position we assumed
in our farmer article and also our position
nn all the different rhas. , s of the question of
negro-suffrage that have any chance of being
dragged into discussion.
Our article was written in support of the
action of Congress on the question of negro
suffrage in the District of Columbia and
every word and letter of it had direct refer
e•iee to that measure and to that alone. We
b'littve that Congress had the power to pass
siich nn net for the yis.triet ; that such a law
was neces-ary fur the protection of the ne
grocs who were about the only loyal resident
population during the war ; that the negroes
although they might hn incom potent to ex-
ereise the right of suffrage understandingly
and although they might possibly abuse the
pri vi:egei of citizens were no seoree than the
white voters nearly all of whom were g eddy
of crime: , that in any other country would
not only deprive them of the franchise but
also of liberty arid life. Andrew John•on
when his greatness depended not on accident
but on actions declared that •• loptl men,
whether white or black, and nut traitors,
should vote"—ln our article we did nut go
quite so far. We adunired loyal ir en only
to what we didn't deny traitors. This was
the entire range we took on the question.
As to the other qUeiLit , ll which our neigh
bor forcesui us we beg leave to state distinctly
that we do not ;1.-k l'.wgre , s to make. negroes
voters in the Southern State, nor would we
approve Each lqcislation. The :dates alone

We are alwAy.: in 1,1,v0r t)t . R white man's

sity of having to put negroes on a political
equality with white Wen, but t we have a
dove . regret that a community of white
men. ;hould be guilty of the crimes which
in strict ju , tiee would forfeit their lives. We
are willing to make a distinction with regard
to color but net so great a one as there ex
ist; between loyalty and treason. We are
free to say further that we would be will irrg
to apply the Sartle principle to the States
lately in rebellion had Congress the power
to do so. We would there, if we could, make
the loyal black man about equal in controll
ing the government he had helped to save,
to the perjured traitor and tli.eving guerilla
who, did his utmost to destroy it. To do
this however we have no power. Each state
has the right to lix the qualification of its
own voters. This is conceded oven by Thad
deus Stevens who is regarded quite as much
of a radical as any in our party. We there
fore oppose legislation of this kind fur the
Southern States because it is beyond the
power of Congress to make it.
We have a word or two concerning our
neighbor's misrepresentation. We seers not
a little susrprised to see this sentence in their

Is there any necessity to misrepresent an
opponent particularly when you insist he
has the weak side of the case 1 Wo said
nothing of the sort, and wo hope to see this
rather mean perversion of words corrected.
There was nothing in our article that
gave a right to infer that we favored negro
suffrage in Pennsylvania. The compliment
that we are too generous to force on a Dis
trict what .we are unwilling to accept our
selves is altogether gratuitous. We profess
no generosity to traitors that is not compa
tible with justice. We believe in remitting
the'punishment of all, except the most prom
• inent of thorn; we have no objection that
they even participate in the Government
they have now most unwillingly quit fight
ing, but wo do contend that it would bo as
groat an injustice as was„the system of sla
very, to deprive loyal black men of the pri
_ vileges we bestow on traitors. In this con
nection may we ask our neighbor on whom
he would bestow his favors—the white man
who .would attempt to take his life or the
black man who would re cue biro from dan
ger? Our Government is now debating that
question and asks us all for our opinion.'
Please lot us have your answer.

tection. Every ono-knows that-guarantees
would be made to these distinguished civil
and military chieftains, of every thing that
any of thiltn would demand, by rebels whose
only temporal salvation consisted in getting
reconstructed. What these guarantees will
be worth when the States are fully invested
with their municipial powqrs is the ques
tion that really concerns fobr millions of
beings in whom alone treason was not dom
inant. At present the forces of the 'United
States . hold the Southern States in subjec
tion ; a freedman's bureau is in operation, the
necessity for restoration of their former rights
as States, is an incentive to modern' ely re-
spectable behavior on their part ; and yet
we find in many instances that they aro
running counter to the President's wishes
and that Gen. Grant has been obliged to
order his officers to disregard their local
laws with regard to the freed - nien. We
know that the men of tho South have disre-
garded every moral and 15gal duty to their
Country ; we know that while engaged in
10 late war they murdered by slow 4tarva
tion ninny thousands of our prisoners, and
knowing these things wo are notjotind to
put a great deal of confidence in guarantees
made under duress, by men who have not
onor enough in them to regard their vul-
Mary allegiance to their Government or
humanity sufficient to restrain them from
starving and shooting helpless captives. The
common experience of mankind has demon
strated that it is hazardous to rely on the
word of a common liar, the honor of a thief
or the humanity of a murderer even wher
nothing more than the interests or safety o
a single individual is at stake, but our mod
ern reconstruetionists would intrust the fu
ture of four millions of human beings to the
•• guarantee ' of men Who stand eteivicted ut
about all thu crimes kno MI to humanity and
hose previous relations to thew have beci
those ut ty: ants and oppressors. Our " upin
ions of Southern men and Southern charm:
cr are not "derived from sensational ab
olition novels such as Uncle ToM's Cabin."'
Wa wish inde,al they were. Legree's bru
tality is of its kind, intense enough, but it
seems gentleness when compared with that
or the men who arc respomildc fat the hor
rors of Libby and A ndersonville. The
whole Jecord of the rebellion from the as
sa-a-ination of - Ellsworth to that of Lincoln
t. , 11s us plainly that patriotism and humanity
aro not cardinal S irtucs of the dominant
race in the late Confederacy.
There is an argument in the I,,lntrer's
artieh , that is certainly - worth copying for
our OW II )111rp ,, i , It seems somewhat out
of place in the columns of a paper that is so
ouch exercised for the interests of the late
traitors of the South. How strangely it
reo.ds in its own 0,11 nection.
The truth of the matter is—and here is
where the advoeateh of negro sutfrage.Make
their great mistake—the elective franchise
is not a natural and absolute, but a relative
and legal right—that is a "right conferred by
law, 'and arising out of the construction of
eoriety. Frotchise is defined to be " a par
ticular privilege or right granted by the
sovereign power in a State to , an individual
or a number of persons. - Now no nation
has the right to bestow any franchise upon
a number of persons, when it is probable
that they will not make a proper use of that
privilege; and no man can claim ns II right
front the nation that of which he knows
neither the titt nor the value, and which in
.his hands 'night result in damage to others.
The Constitution guarantees to every man
the right to keep and bear tire-arms, but who
except a fool would contend that a maniac
should be allowed the exercise of that privi-
L•ge. \Vhat may therefore be granted to
one 111E111, cannot always be allowed to anoth
er. Stieh restraints should be thrown around
the elective franchise, as indeed around any
ws will I,,evcnt it fr..0l ho
coming dangerous to the liberties the
We endorse every word of this—except
th.• intimation that thou who advocate suit . -
ra4o for a negi:o claim it as a natural right.
We believe we can distinguish between an
al -oluto right and a franchise without a
great deal of instruction as to what consti
totes each. But new let us apply the
merit. At least four-titlis of the former
voters of the south have used the elective
tranchisu iu ucli a way re-ult in the
serious injury to the nation—has the
nation a right to confer ir on them again ?
The privileges of citizenship in their eases lots
resulted in the utmost damage to them and
to other , — •an th •y claim to be restored to
them as a matter of right'.' Certainly not,
oar neighbor being the judge. What con
sideration then justitie; u, in allowing them to
become citizen; again ? Nothing, except
the hope that they may become hereafter
worthy of their privilege. Is it probable
that these conquered traitors filled with the
bitterness that all !nun feel toward those who
vanquished them, will make better citizens
than the black men who have remained loy
al and contributed their efforts to sustain the
wivernment. On this consideration and that
of justice must this question be deterinined.
Hayti and Jamaica appears to be favorite
illustrations by all advocates of oppression
and injustice, of the necessity of both in
order that Om black race may be
from certain revolt, anarchy mid degrada
tion. We prefer an illustration somewhat
nearer home. South of Mason and Dixon's
lino the two races have lived just as the De
mocracy no; tend they should live. What
is the result 7 Prosperity, order, and peace T
Not in any very astonishing degree. Hayti
may not be nearly as rich and prosperous as
some countries we know of, but we doubt
seriously whether it isn't in better condition
than that portion of our country which is
controlled by an intensely Democratic vari
ety of the white species. The late outbreak
in Jamaica was bad enough doubtless, but
the Southern rebellion was about as cause
loss, lasted somewhat longer and produced
nearly as much misery. We doubt seriously
I whether the little amusement got up by Gov.
Seymour's friends in July 18113, wasn't
nearly as bad as the Jamaica revolt, except
that we didn't quite hang two thousand of
those who participated in it. Would it not be
well enough to fix up things that we have at
home before wo travel to Hayti and Jamaica
to prove that the old order of things should
not be changed?
But we must close. The experience of the
last ton years has demonstrated more forci
cibly than events usually do, that the only
foundation on which the platform of politi
cal parties can be securely built is that of
justice. The indications of popular opinion
that appear on the surface have frequently
lured men to their political graves as hun
dreds of the now forgotteh leaders of the
Derriocracy have discovered to their sorrow.
The lessons of the past seem to have been.
lost on them for they cling to thoir old idols,
with as much tenacity as over. If they de

We have received from the author, D. M.
Richardson, Esq., of Detroit, a pamphlet,
neatly printed in Philadelphia, entitled how
Specie Payments may be resumed within three
years without contraction of xthe Currency or
Commercial Revulsion. His plan is to lay
an export duty of ton cents per pound, in
gold, upon cotton. In beginning his calcu
lations ho says that the "crop of 1865 is esti
mated nt 2,100,000 bales. 1t is not half that.
He puts the crop for 1866 at 2,750,0 0 0. It
may reach 2.000,000, bales. By 1808 he
thinks our crop will reach 4,500,000 bales.
It may amount to that—we hope it will.
Thus on the three years' crop at lue per
pound he expects to raise $320,000,000 of
gold, which would enable the Government
to pay specie for its greenbacks. How long
would the Government have any portion of
the $820,000,000 of gold even if $100,000,-
000 greenbacks should, in the meantime, be
called in ? It should be remembered that
there will be not only 30,000,000 of people
hungry for gold, but hanks having some
$350,000,000 of notes, will want all the gold
they can got, especially, if they shall be com
pelled to pay in specie. Besides . , the author
tells us that on inquiry at the Treasurer's of
fice, he finds there are now $200,000,000 of
gold in,the country. Of this the Govern
ment has to use over $00,000,000 in paying
interest, and if Mr. MeCulloa s hould go in
to the funding business at gold rates of in
terest, the Government may need $1 00,000,-
000 or more of gold, half if to use semi-an
nually. Deducting this from $250,000,000
and there remain 6100,000,000 of e old, ou
of which Mr. Richardson proposes to pay I

THE INTERESTS OF AMERICAN
Letter from Maj. Gen. John W
In Favor of Protection to Every
Branch of Biome Labor.
nimiiuti.ltY 0,186 G.
The following letter from Maj. Gen. John
W. Geary will he read with marked atten
tion by the people of the entire Common
wealth, evincing, as it does,noble regard for
the interest and prosperity of the pursuit of
peaceful labor, and declaring in favor of
that protection from which, alone, the Gov
ernmetit can derive the necessary revenues
and oppressive taxation
To the Editor of (he Telegraph
As I run constantly in receipt of ninny
letters, asking substantially the same ques
tion, namely: 'Whether I am in laver of a
protective tariff, I desire to avail myself of
your widely circulated journal for the pur
pose of briefly expressing my opinion upon
I not in favor of the encouragement of
Homo Industry, and of extending such- pro
tection to American manufactures as will
make us entirely independent of any foreign
country. Our true pollicy should be to sup
ply our wants, so far as we can, from our
own reseorces, thus giving remunerative
employment to our ()Wu people, instead of
reducing their wages, by compelling them
to attempt to compete with the ili paid labor
of Europe. By means of rt protective tariff
we develope the rescorces of our country,
increase the value of property, open up new
scources of wealth, multiply the pursuits of
indostry, create a good market for all kinds
of turricultural products ; in a word, we set
in motion a system which, while it benefits
all classes of community, does no injury to
any. Nature has been lavish of her gifts to
us. She has given us Mountains of iron,
inexhaustible fields of coal, a bounteous
supply of the precious metals, while our
soil and climate are capable of producing
almost every variety found in the vegetable
kingdom. American genius and enterprise
have given to the world most of those grand
inventions in machinery, through whose
agencies the world has been revolutionized.
It would seem that we p3ssess all of the
elements to make us IL great and indepen
dent nation. To ignore the existence of
these great natural advantages, is to be
blind to our own interests; to fail to improve
them, and to profit by them, is to pursue a
suicidal policy. The interest on a portion
of our national debt must be paid in coin.—

Labor is low, capital is scarce, and interest
is high, in every country on the globe which
exports raw products. Turkey, 'Mexico,
Russia, Ireland, Canada, and South Ameri
ca are solemn witnesses to the truth of this
law of keen my . It is au inexorable law,
without variableness or shadow of turning.
In all those countries which consume their
raw products, land and labor rise in price,
capital becomes plenty, and interest steadily
falls. This, too, is One of God's unchange-
able laws. ;Massachusetts and Connecticut,
Belgium, France and Germany, joyfully
witness to its truth and beneficence.

It is now stated that it is Governor Cur
tin's intention to resign hi, exccutiN c orrice
soon after the expiration of the present leg
islative session, and that this action on his
part is prompted by a conviction that hi ,
continued foiling health will not permit his I

executive funetions w ilhout inimtie , to hi m .
self_ It is known that a foreign ministry
has been tendered him —though to what
country has not ylt been mad, public -and
that he is personally di-tpe.ted to accept the
mbtsion. He is very anxious, hoot vett. that,
either in the recut of th. twee dunce 'this
foreign appointment and c on-e q m.ot
resignation as Governor, or of his cominu_
ance as chief mogh.trote to the end of hi,
term, that he nwy not hid adieu to hi , r, ;it
ollbv, in which s die has served so long :Ind so
faithfully, without the glorious record of
having porfcrined Iris duly to the soldier, of
hi, State to the vory last moment of hi; ex
ecutive action. His darling object now is to
complete the good work R hioli be eommenood
over it year ago, the idabli,hment 4 at thor

which the orphan; of d t t ee as,d
soldiers may receive that I' 'l e-tering core .1111
attention which a great-hearted Col, mon
wealth shou:d butdow on her children a ode

that is now needed is a large and liberal ap

competent for the officers appointed to the

Several very important measures have
passed the Legislature since my last letter,
and they will undoubtedly receive the Gov
e: nor's signature.
In the Senate to-day, .Mr.
called up the House bill appropriating live
hundred thousand dollars for the relief of
the citizens of Chandier,burg, and the bill
passed finally, by a vote of 18 to 1t2.. This
bill is now practically a law.
Mr. CoN N FAA , . this a orning called up the
Ifoule bill exempting real estate from State
tax, and the bill passed finally ; so that here
after all real estate is exempt from taxation
for State purposes, and I refer you to the
close of my letter for a copy of the bill as it
passed both Houses.
The interest in the gubernatorial nomina
tion is unabated. Although it number of
county conventions have indicated their pol
icy in the coining State Convention, it is, of
course, rather premature tutiAr to state What
are the chances of the respective candidates
for nomination; but 1 am confident, from
what I sou here, that after the smoke of bat
tle shall have cleared away, and the various
parties shall have shown their hands clearly
and distinctly, that Gen. JonN NV. GEARY
Will Stand at the head of every loyal paper
as the candidate of the "Unii.in
party for the Governorship. Ido not make
this assertion as a false allurement to inac
tion on the part of his friends, but simply as
a conviction that if they do their whole
duty, they will come out of the convention
with their man. The Harrisburg Patriot ).
Union, a sheet of the darkest copperish hue,
evidently views General GEARY as the coin
ing man, having shifted her rigging for a
furious attack upon the general's private

spine, or backbone, say for len or twenty minute); at
a time, about three times a day, and away goes at once
all the pain resulting from such female complaints as
lenuorrhea, weakening discharges, obstructions, reten
tions, prolapses uteri, hysterics, headache, &c., the
complaints themselves gradually disappearing If you
only persevere In the application of the Ready Relief.
For all spinal affections, for weakness, rheumatism,

paralysis, numbness, diseases of the kidneys, bladder,
urethra ; for pains in the small of the back, to the hips

tient.* and you may depend upon a certain and speedy
curs. Some prefer to rub with iluudy Relief the part

theria, sore throat, horsenoss, pain in the breast, pain
in the bowels, sprains, cuts, bruises, wounds, cramps,
chilblains, headache, fits, sore knees, feet, joints, legs,
