(Subject to the action of the Union State
Wo print on the first page to day the mes
sage of President JOHNSON vetoing the
Freedmen's Bureau bill and also the bill it
self and commends'both to the careful peru
sal of every friend of the Union in the
County, While we appreciate the expressed
regard of the President to guard against en
croachments on the Constitution and in
creased expenditure we regret that he found
it necessary to oppose his veto to the action
of Congress in this case. The bill had passed
both branches of the National Legislature
by a majority of nearly three fourths in each
and reflected to an unusual extent the desires
of the representatives of the people. It may
be urged that the superior wisdom or patiot
ism of the President is sufficient to give him
a right to override Congress but it should
be remembered that there are two sides to
'this question. Congress is composed of men
who are or were until very lately regarded
by all as the peers of Z‘.NDIi.ICIV JOHNSON.
Many of them have served as long as ho in
our National Councils and some of them
much longer and more conspicuously : They
stood as unfalteringly by the Government
during its hour of peril as did he ; they
have had the same sources of information
concerning the wants of the Country, and
are equally competent to judge of the Con
stitutionality of the net as the President.
With regard to honesty of purpose or pa
triotism it is assuming rather bold grounds
to assert that the resident is immaculately
honest and patriotic and the one hundred
and forty Senators and representatives are
scoundrels and demagogues. We confess
we are unable to arrive at such a conclusion
with the rapidity which a few of our and all
our opponents have shown in solving this
question. We are not questioning the mo
tives of the President for the veto nor de
nouncing his course as ill advised or foolish
hut we are not prepared, after a careful read
ing of his veto and the bill to denounce the
Union majority in Congress as fanatics or
fools. The present Freedmen's Bureau has
been productive of great benefits to the en
tire Southern Country and to the Nation,
and we hope to see a similar system pursued
until the municipial affairs of the late Con-
Aederacy are fully restored. In this connec
tion we would ask attention to the synopsis of
Senator Trumbell's speech which we pub
lished also on our first page, only regretting
that we have out room for the entire argu-
In this apparent rupture between the Pres
ident and Congress it behooves those who
have the welfare of the great Union party
at heart to actcalmly and rationally. Abuse
of the President and denunciations of the
" radicals" is alike unwise and unnecessary.
There need be'no rupture in the party un
less the President is determined to betray
his trust and this we cannot yet - believe.
ANDREW JOHNSON has received too much
persecution at the hands of rebels and their
friends to go over to them hastily. Their
demonstrations of joy at . any of his actions
only arise from their hopes of an estrange
ment between him and the party and not
from their admiration for him or for his
course. When he declares himself with
them or makes it manifest by his continued
hostility to Congress that he has betrayed
those who elevated him to the position he
last held it will then be time to count him
with our toes.
The friends of Andrew Johnson, those
who supported and admired him when he
stood up against the traitors of the South
and when the entire force of eopperhendisin
Was engaged-in reviling and slandering hi in ;
who gave him as a free will offering the
second seat in the nation, have had their
friendship severely tried on more than ono
occasion since their last act •of honoring
him. He has seen fit to refuse any cordial
affiliation with them in their political con
duct, and on several occasions to set up his
will and policy -in opposition to the almost
unanimous voice of their represent tives.
This may have evinced wisdom and patriot
ism and for the country's sake we sincerely
hope that in these things the President was
right. As long as there was a hope that his
actions wore dictated by proper motives we
were willing to indulge that hope. We can
do so no longer. The - President has spoken
words which shoW that he entertains no
feeling of kindness for those who have made
him;all that he proudly boasts of as his own.
On last Thursday he saw fit to give to the
country his viows at length on the 'policy
which he has seen fit to adopt, and that it
grieves us to say, appears to be friendship
and sympathy for rebels and traitors and
hatred and proscription for loyal men. We
do not care to urge that his late speech at
Washington was deliver d in presence of,
,to please s c rabble that was organized
and led to the White House by the worst
typo of northern copperheads, or that from
the Presidential mansion of the, nation he
was guilty of low personal abuie of C;pii,-
gressmon and private citizens to gratify the
demands of that mob, as the cause which
should make patriots hesitate to support him.
There are other considerations that tell
against the President with much more force.
He knows the wickedness of Southern trea
son and has denounced the traitors with more
vehemence than any other man in the na-,
tion. Until ho was made President he stood
fully up with those who went farthest in
every measure which he now deprecates.—
His record abounds with threats of tho most
dire 'v,pligeance on- those who participated in
the lateTebellion. , Those who had any fears
for him feared that he would rule the
Aubied rebels with tee great severity. Yet
the President seems to have forgotten, that
.guilt attaches at all to those who were lately
in . 'rebellion. He apprehends no danger now
from ,entrusting them with n'volee in the,
4,Government, but is extremely,.

Last week GEN. GRANT shut 13p the of
fice of the Richmond Examiner on account
of its treasonable course and issued an order
requiring his department commanders to
forward to him copies of all journals con
taining seditious articles so that he might
suppress them. Two or three years ago such
an order would have raised a howl among
the copperhead papers but now they have
thought prudent to pursue another tack.
They pretend to be much pleased with the
order and kindly warn radical Abolition
newspapers to bo careful as it is aimed
at them. The impudence of those follows
is perfectly astounding. Apologists for
treason themselves they denounce as trai
tors all who did not join them in their
crusade against the Government and al
though morally nearly as bad as the jour
nals of the Into Confederacy they now claim
that they are the only exponents of loyalty
and insist that the Government is about
shutting all who aro opposed to them. Of
course our neighbor the Volunteer is con
spicuous in impertinent suggestions of the
kind, of which this is a specimen.
General Grant has issued a circular to the
department commanders directing them to
furnish information in regard to disloyal
newspapers with a view to the suppression
of such. Lot Republican editors look-out,
or Grant will put his foot upon most of
By way of offset we will try now to show
what journals Gen. GRANT referred to
and that by an authority that they won't
are about disputing. Pollard the editor of
the Richmond Examiner has finally got per
mission from the President to print again
and in his first issue he tells the whole story.
Ile isn't lying either because ho has had no
abolition influences around him to give him
the habit. Ilesays—
knew nothing of General Grant's order
for the rSlease of the officers until I read it in
the papers. I saw that officer but once when
he refused emphatically to revoke the order
for the seizure of the office. It was evident
that I had nothing to hope from him; for lie
said to me expressly that, if he had the as
thority, he would that day suppress the New-
York News, the Cincinnatti Enquirer and the
Chicago Times, adding the, the "copperhead
papers of the North, "as Le designated them
were doing quite as much harm as the pap •rs
in (he South. Deriving no satisfaction from
him, I was forced to appeal to the President,
giving him the pledge contained in the letter
above. It was written during my last inter
view with the President, and in his own office
To his kind and considerate hearing, and to.
his sense of justice, I feel that I owe the res
toration of my,paper.
Gen. GRANT shows by this how complete
ly he appreciates the labors of our copper_
head brethern and also evinces adesire to give
them a punishment from which they too
frequently escaped during the rebellion.
We hope however that he may leave our
Northern Cops entirely alone and only sup
press even Southern sheets as a very last re
sort. As long as the nation has its present
Lieutenant General and its loyal press the
fellows can be safely tolerated. They would
be less ridiculous ..h.owevet;,_if they had less
i mpudence.
Heretofore when we charged the Volun
teer and its party with being in the interest
of the English manufacturers as against our
own laboring classes, we have been unifor
mely met with indignant denials. Time,
however proves the truth or falsity of all
statements, and if after reading the annexed
editorial from this week's Volunteer, any
body is deceived as to the position of that
journal on the all important question of pro
tection for American industry against the
pauper competition of England, it will' be
because ho refuses to see the truth.
The Yankee cotton prints in the market,
although enormously high in price, are often
most worthless in quality. Doubtless thou
sands of housekeepers can vouch for the
truth of this statement. Notwithstanding
this fact, and the enormous profits realized
by the manufacturers, they want a tariff to
raise prices still higher, and to keep out of
the country much superior fabrics of ',En
glish production.- Volunteer.
It affords us much pleasure to inform the
property holders of our County that the act
repealing the State tax on real estate, which
we published last week has been signed by
the Governor and is now a law. Our tax
burdened people will rejoice greatly over
this action of our State Government. Tax
on real estate has been always BALA'S bur
densome and particularly so i by the agricul
tural community. By the amended revenue
/ et the revenue of the State is kept up to its
former amount even after the repeal of this
tax—the tax on Bank stocks and gross re
ceipts of Railroad companies making up for
the loss of this item. The current expenses
of the Government will therefore be paid and
the State debt reduced still at the rate of
about a million a year. We ask our people
to bear in mind that although Pennsylva
nia's burdens were increased almost incalcul-
I ably by Democratic treason during the four
last years, she has maintained her credit, re
sponded to all the demands made upon her
and yet relieved all her real property entirely
from the heavy taxation imposed on it by
Democratic misrule. All this may go to
prove that Abolition rule is destructive to
the interests of the State but we confess we
are unable to see it in that light.

The Volunteer compliments Gov. CURTIIst
in its usually elegant style, as follows :
The Governor may be "the same genial,
kind, good-hearted , man, with a pleasant
smile for all," but to say that "his administra
tion has been a great success and an honor to
the State," is more than any man who haq
respect for law, the Constitution or decency,
can endorse.
Of course this is a matter of opinion, but
we beg leave to suggest that Governor Cur
tin, has received the endorsement of a very
largo majority of the people of the State after
three years experience of his administration.
These men who did so may have had no re
spect for the law, constitution or decency, but
we venture to suggest that they wore nut
those who made speeches in favor of rebel
lion and organized societies to resist the
laws of the land. The men who showed
their decency in this way have much the
same opinion of the Governor as the Vol
Those who insist the Country would have
gone to destruction bad not the President
vetoed the Freedman's Bureau bill are fond
of saying that the U. S. Senate "sustained
the veto." We think this is drawing it rath
er Dne. The vote in the Senate was 18 in
favor of the veto and 30 against it. This is
a kind cf sustaining that we don't quite un
derstand. It is true that there were not two
thirds of the Senate opposed to the veto and
therefore the bill failed to become a law, but
as to the Senate sustaining the veto that is
somewhat too strong.
\'ALLANDIUILAM who attempted to save
the Union by having it split into four pieces
and who afterwards was banished as a trai
tor from his country, had a hundred guns
fired on receiving the news of the veto and
displayed a flag from his windows. It must
be very gratifying to the Union men of the
Country to know that this most pestiferous
of rebels so warmly endorses the President.

Extracts from President Johnson's
Delivered nl ifra.qhingion Fch. 22, 1806
The following are a few extracts from the
Irate remarkable speech of the President and
will chow the•gerieral tenor of this very ex
traordinary effort.
I fought traitors and treason in the South.
I opposed the Davises, the Toombs, the Sh
dells, and a long list of other:4, which you
can readily fill up without my repeating the
names. Now, when I turn round and at the
other end of the line find men, I care not by
what name you call them, who still stand
opposed to the restoration of the Union Qf
these States, I am free to say to you that I
am still in the field. (Great applause.) I
am still for the preservation of the Union.
I am still in favor of this great Government
of ours going on and on, and filling out of
its destiny. (Great applause. Voices—(live
us three names at the other end.)
The President—l am called upon to name
throe at the other end of the line. 1 am
talking to my friends and fellow-citizens, who
are intrusted with ins in this Government,
and I presume T fun free to mention to you
the names of those to whom 1 look uponols
being opposed to the fundamental principles
of this Government, and who are laboring
to pervert and destroy it. (Voices. "Name
them I" " Who are they '1") Tho Pres
ident—You ask mo who they are. 1 say
Thaddeus Stevens, of Pennsylvania, is one;
I say Mr. Sumner, of the Senate, is another,
and Wendell Phillips is another.—(Long
continued applause.) (Voices, "Give it to
Forney 'l') The President—ln reply to tijat,
I will simply say 1 do not waste my ammu
nition upon dead ducks. (Great laughter
and applause.) I stand for my country;
I stand for the Constitution. There I have
always placed my feet from my advent to
public life. They may traduce, they may
vituperate me, but let mo say to you, all this
has no influence upon me. (Great applause.)
Let me say further, that I do not intend
to be overawed by real or pretended friends,
nor do I mean to be.bulliod enemies.
(Tremendous applause). Honest conviction
is my courage, the Constitution is my guide.
I know, my countrymen, that it has been
insinuated, no, not insinuated, it has boon
said directly in high places, that if such a
usurpation of power as I am charged with
had been exercised some two hundred years
ago in a particular reign, it would have cost
an individual his head. (Great laughter).
Of what usurpation has Andrew Johnson
beep guilty? (None. None.)
Is it a usurpation to stand between tho
people and the encroachments of power.
Because in a conversation with a fellow
citizen who happened to boa Senator, I said
that I thought amendments to the Consti
tution ought not too frequently to bo made ;
that if it was continually tinkered with it
would lose all its prestige and dignity, and
th'e 'old inStrument would be lost sight of
altogether in a short time; and because, in,
the same conversation I happoned'Ao - say,
that if it were amended at all, such and an
amendment ought to bo adopted, ibis to he
charged that I was guilty of usurpation of
power, that would have costa king his hdad,
in a certain , of; Efiglish„ ?
(Great latigiiter)'. From the same source
the exclatnation .has gone forth that they
were in tho midst of earthqualces; that they
were trembling and co,uld not (Laugh

country is in peril, I hold 'it to be my duty
to speak what fthink and what I feel, as I
--have done on former occasions. (Great ap
, plause.)
I have said, ithas been declared elsewhere
that I was guilty of usurpation'Whieh Would
have cost a king his head, and in another
place I have been denounced for whitewash
ing. When and where did I ever white
wash anything or anybody ? I have been an
Alderman of n town; I have been in 'both
branches of ,the Legislature of my State,- I
have been in both Houses of the National
Congress, I have been at the head of the
Executive Department of my State, I have
been Vice President of the United States,
and I am now in the position which I occu
prbefore you, and during all this career
where is the man and what portion of the
people is there who can say that Andrew
Johnson over Made a pledge which he did
not redeem, or that he over made a promise
which he, violated! None. Now point me
to the man who can say that Andrew John
son ever acted with infidelity to the great
mass of the people. (Great applause.)
Men may talk about beheading and about
usurpation, but when I am beheaded I want
the American people to bu the witnesses. I
do not want it, by inuendoes and indirect
remarks in high places, to bo suggested to
men who have assassination brooding in
their bosoms, that there is a lit subject.
Others have exclaimed that the present ob
stacle must begotten out of the way. - What
is that, but to make use of a strong word,
inciting to assassination? No doubt, I say,
the intention was to incite assassination, so
the obstacle the.people placed here could be
got out of the way. Aro the Opponents of
this Government not yet satisfied ; are those
who want to destroy our institution and to
change the character of the Government,
not satiated with the quantity of blood that
has been shed ? Are they not satisfied with
one martyr in this place? Does not the
blood of Lincoln appease their vengeance
and is their thirst still unslacked ? Do they
still want more blo. d Have they not honor
and courage enough to seek to obtain the end
otherwise than through and by the hand of
an assassin. I am nut afraid of an assassin
attacking me whqre one bravo and cour
ageous man will attack another. I only
dread him when in disguise, and whore his
footstep is noiseless.
If they want blood let them have the
courage to strike like men. I know they
are willing to wound, but afraid to strike.
If any blood is to be shed, because I vindi
cate the Union, and insist on the preservation
of this Government in its original purity, let
it' e shed ; but let an altar to the Union be
first erected, and then, if necessary, take mo
and lay me upon it. and Ole blood that now
warms and animates nijxistenee shall be
poured out as the last libation, as a tribute
to the Union of these States. (Great ap
plause.) But let the opponents of this gov
ernment remember, when it is poured out,
that the blood of the martyrs is the seed of
the church. This Union will grow, and it
will continue to increase in strength and
power, though it may be cemented and
cleansed in blood. I have already spoken
to you longer than I intended when I came
out. (Go on.)

Special Corretipoittlence of the Carlisle Herald
WASH I,:`ICITON, Feb. 26, 1866
It is really funny to observe how jubilant
the Copperheads have been in this city since
the veto message of the President was made
public. Their joy took shape immediately
after its appearance, and their feelings, so
long pent up, because,of the voice of the
great Union party of the country which ef
fectually drowned their hissings, finally cul
minated in a convocation of the species in
Grover's Theatre on the 22d, inst., where
with maudlin sentiments of love for the Con
stitution, Star Spangled Banner-&c., and
general expressions of everlasting esteem for
Andrew Johnson, they, on the principle of
the polite spider, endeavored wheedle him
into the ranks of their party, and away from
the bold course of Constitutional right, which
he has so manfully adopted. Never before
have the secession circles of Washington en
joyed so delicious a matin day as, on the 22d,
of February, and never haVollniy so unre
servedly unburdened their souls, and given
such real expressions to their feelings. The
issue, which is sincerely, to be lipped mill be
short-lived, between the executive and Union
majorities in Congress, has filled them 'with
unbounded ecstasy because the most conspic
uous and hitherto constant object of their ,
hatred, has, in their interpretation of ;the
signs of the times, presented himself as tin,
auxiliary and friend:
. ,
The Union men, hero and: now, repudiate
the charge that because President Johnson
has seen fit to",disagree with Congress in? re :
gard to the expddieneY of a measure, 'Which
on mature and thoughtful consideration ihaa
beeri.deemed of questionable propriety ; 4:tint,'

Special Correspondence of the Carlisle Herald
, HAitltistVitd,:March. .1, 186 G
rinirposely delayed my letter until this
morning in the hope that I might be able to
give your readers the result of a meeting of
a committee of members of the Legislature
called for yesterday afternoon to make ar
rangements for a public reception of Penn
sylvania Battle-flags. But owing to tho
pressure of buSiness upon both branches of
the Legislature the committee was obliged
to postpone its meeting until this evening.
This reception, which will take piece in
Philadelphia, Harrisburg or Pittsburg, as
the committee may determine, promises to
be a greater and more enthusiastic demon
stration than has taken placirfor a long time
in this good old Commonwealth, these war
worn and battle stained standards will be
returned to the Governor by some able, elo
quent and distinguished son of Pennsylva
nia whom the committee will select with an
eye to the importance of the occasion and
the Governor will doubtless reply. It has
been proposed that a history of each of these
flags be prepared and that these histories
together with the addresses and ceremonies
of presentation, shall form a State Book,
which cannot fail to be of great
cilizons generally, besides it must prove a
work of historic value. Now York has just
produced this beautiful and useful idea.
It has been erroneously reported that the
special committee appointed tor the purpose,
has already selected an artist for the great
work of placing on canvas a representation
of the battle of Gettysburg, as authorized
by the Legislature. The committee have
not yet made their selection. When the
work is Completed it will be hung in one of
the Chambers of the Legislature or in the
newl,ibrary room.
The Atlantic an Great Western Railroad
fight, that two months ago seemed to loom
up in the distance like a rugged mountain,
has now, after much labor and turmoil,
I brought forth a very respectable sized mouse.
I The Atlantic and Great Western is defeated
all around ; their grand through line has in
the full sense of the term, become an air
lino and their improvements air castles—at
least for a considerable time to come. Both
Houses of the Legislature seem impressed
with the duty of sustaining the interests of a
bona tide Pennsylvania Corporations, and
hence the rower House some three weeks ago
passed an act authorizing the Philadelphia
and Eric (the Pennsylvania central lessees)
to build any number of colatteral roads they
may deem it advisable to run through any
of tho counties adjoining the Phila. and
Erie. This bill came up in the Senate yes
terday and was fought bitterly by such men
as Lowav, Bionnm, and CLYMER who are
very mtich iuterested in the Atlantic and
Great Western ; They spoke against time
and accordingly the discussion was pending
at the hour of adjournment. The bill came
up again yesterday and after the most bitter
opposition passed finally. This will give
the Pennsylvania central such a choice of
routs as must make the Atlantic andiGroat
Western but a secondary affair—at least in
Western Pennsylvania; while at the Eascrn
end the Supreme Court has decided that the
lease of the Catawissa by the Atlantic and
great western is illegal.
Prof. H. D. Rogers, author of that stupen
does work, the Geology of Pennsylvania,
written from surveys under the authority of
the State, and American professor of Geolo
gy in the-University of Glascow, Scotland,
by invitation of the Legislature, delivered a
lecture last night in the House of Represen
tatives, on the subject of Petroleum in Penn
sylvania. In the course of his remarks, ho
said that there was no other locality in the
World that could compare favorably with
Pennsylvania in the quality and quantity of
and the facilities for obtaining petroleum.
Ho asserts that no wells can yield any con
siderable amount of oil for more than three
years; indeed that seemed the usual life-time
of an oil well—some could not produce for
a longer period than two years. But in our
oil regions there are too many wells. This
is detrimental not only to a fair yield from
all, but owing to the numerous vents in the
earth the gas, which forces the oil to the
surTuce,3s alTowed lo escape too freely and
we thus waste the impelling power by which
the petroleum is forced to the surface. Ile
recommended that a scientific gentleman be
appointed as a director or manager, with
power on an inspection to close such holes
as had ceased to be productive. If this plan
were followed, he alleged that in the cour,,e
of three or four years many of the wells that
aro not now working would again become as
productive as ever. All the petroleum is
west or northwest of the Apalatchian range,'
and comes from marine .deposits.
Under the act appropriating $500,000 to
the people of Chambersburg for their losses
in the conflagration during the rebel raid of
18134, Judge Pearson has appointed, as com
missioners to assess the damages, 11. N.
McCollister, Esq., of Centro county, John
H. Briggs, Esq., and Col. Thos. J. Jordan,
of Harrisburg. These men are of undoubted
competency, and are honest and conscientious
The House yesterday passed finally the bill
that is demanded by the citizens residing in
the vicinity of the Susquehanna and its tri
butaries, who desire the luxury of fresh slid.
It received the votes of a very largo majority
of the members, though the. Susquehanna
and Tido Water Canal Company, owning
the dam at Columbia which is the first and
greatest obstacle to the passage of shad,
fought the bill savagely. This bill provides
for the proper alteration of all dams on the
Susquehanna and its tributaries in such a
way as will allow the free passage of fish up
the stream. The Governor is authorized
and required to appoint an inspector, whose
duty it shall be to direct the alterations
agreeably to the provisions of the bill, and
report any neglect on the part of corporations
or individuals owning dams to the proper
district attorney, who shall enter suit for
nuisance, which may be removed by the
Sheriff and his, posse as all other .nuisances
aro removed. This bill now goes to the
Senate and will doubtless pass thatbody - and
become a law.
The Republican and Democratic members
of the Legislature held party caucuses night
before last ; but the result of their delibera
tions has not been made public. It is said,

CARD.—The Inajes of,;St..,John's
Churoh, having ell'arge of the Festival and
Fair recently held by them, hereby tender
their warm thanks to those persons who kind
ly contributed articles of value and their ser
vices to promote the success of the enterprise.
They feel particularly grateful to those of
other Congregations who aided them, and
appreciate the valuab4.assistance rendered
by the gentlemen composing the committees
of tlte Union, Empire and Cumberland Fire
ERTY.—Major E. C. Reichonbach advertises
in to day's paper that, ho will sell on the 9th
instant a considerable amount of U. S. prop
erty consisting of the wooden buildings
composing the quarters at the late Camp
Biddle (or what is better known as the
•' drafted camp" adjoining Carlisle Bar
racks) and the unfinished hospital building
adjoining the guard house of the barracks.
This is a rare opportunity for carpenters or
persons contemplating building to purchase
the very best of materials at auction figures.
NEW HOSE.-1 4 ho Union fire compa
ny, on Saturday last inspected and formally
received from the manufacturer five hun
dred feet of now hose. The lot consists of
ten sections, every one of which was severely
tested by the powerful engine belonging to
that company, without a flaw or weak place
being discovered. The manufacturer is
Semi. Y., of Philadelphia, and he
may be justly proud of the success of hiS pro
duction after such an oraeal. The couplings
attached to this hose aro known as the Jones
patent, and are certainly the simplest and
most elfectiveconneetion ever devised. With
them the operator can attach or detach the
sections in a second of time so securely too,
that not a drop of water will escape.
During the exercise on Saturday the
" Union" performed the unprecedented feat
of throwing three streams clearly over the
Spiro on the dome of the Court house.
from to-day the annual spring ciections take
place and we deem this a fit time to urge
upon our friends the importance of giv
ing their early attention to the questions
then to be decided. In our borough we
have to aleet chief and assistant burgesses
town council, school director, tax collectors,
constables, election officers &c. Tho finan-
ces of our town are not by any means in a
flattering condition. A burdensome debt
oppresses us with heavy taxes, our police de
tment is in a shockingly inefficient con
dition and ninny improvements in the streets
are imperatively needed. To remedy these
evils a general reorganization of our muui
cipial affidrs must ho accomplished, and to
do this thoroughly amendments to the exist
ing charter will be necessary. If our citi
zens desire the enlargement and general im
provement of our beautiful town some means
must be devised to get rid of the twrible ih
eubus of municipial debt and taxation which
at present almost entirely prevents strangers
from purchasing or building' here.
The Union men of the West ward will
elect a - majority of the . Miw council this year,
and to that majority our people will look
hopefully for such legislation as will tend to
build up and improve our town and at the
same time provide for the ultimate extinc
tion of the borough debt.
We cannot speak too earnestly to our
friends in townships and boroughs in regard
to the election of judges and inspectors of
elections. We have before us an important
- andTexciting - ennipitign l n which wylinpe and
expect to see the Union banner carried by that
heniie soldier and valued fellow citizen of
(our own county, Gen. JOHN W. EARY.
In the event of his nomination it should be
the pride of the County of his adoption to
give him a majority over his copperhead op
ponent and this we honestly believe can be
done. Hut not without earnest continued
labor, which, can only be properly cum : ,
menced by the election of conscientious and
fearless elective oilicei.s. There are many
other considerations which commend these
early electiorks to the watchful attention of
the friends oikgotid government and equal
justice to all, Vbich we need not here dis
cuss—they are patent to all. Let us then
all—township and town alike—go to work
at once and stop not until the business is
