We hope our friends Will read this cap
tion carefully. We have no recollection
of seeing a gathering connected with our
local politics which has the had good fortune
to bedignilled with a titleso imposing. There
is something grand foreshadowed by the
name—something entirely dilferent in pur
pose and intent from tine, little gathering;
of Democratic and Republican politicians
which are held yearly or semi year'y to Ilx
up candidates for the people to support for
the petty and unimportant posts of Prothimo
tory, Register, Coroner or Member of the
Legislature, or to elect delegates to a State
Convention. The call for the meeting of
this Convention was alsounhsually imposing.
For other County Convention , it is usually
sufficient to have the authority of the Onti r
man of the County Com lid Ito. who g.m
is an E litor, a Foreman of a pri nti rig office, a
Justice of the Peace or a newly fledged Law
yer. The National County Convention was
convoked by the authority of the Post
Master of Carlisle, an Ex-chief Burgess, a
medical gentleman, two pront.nent members
of the Bar and a former Editor of the
Herald who jointly and severally composed
the Johnson Esei'euliee Comm Wier• ( the italic;
belong to the concern). Small politicians too,
are careful to indulge in no enunciation of
a political creed but trust that to the Con
vention to fix up according to it, narrow
and contracted rem, of expediency and
party needs. The Jill )IMM Exe'rld ire I'olli

day with an independence and fearless abili

uncertain and fitful utterances of dema,
gogues andlanatics. They invite the loyal
citizens who favor the call for a National
Union Convention of Cumberland County
to meet at Mr. Faber's Hotel on the '_'Nth

—Having thus described the result of the
effort to get up a Johnson Phrty in our
Cokoty we wish to say a word with, regard,
to a fact which the meeting of this eon
vention demonstrates beyond cavil and that
-is the unity which' pervades our own or
ganization in the County : The party which
during the war presented a united front to
those who covertly gave their adhesion to
the cause of the South is without any di
vision of sentiment on the great questions
which are still at issue. The managers of
the Democracy counted on an immense de
velopment of the Johnson element by the
meeting of the Convention. For weeks
they boasted how the radicals would open
their eyes when this convention ment. The
office holding portion of the party was
formed energetically. Postmasters received
letters in which they were " particularly
urged" (does anybody recognize the quota
tion) to cc present, and as a grand result
THREE gentlemen were got together who
voted for Andrew Johnson for Vice Presi
dent who now endorse his policy. In a
County wherein there at least 40 offices in
the gift of the administration ; after months
of most industrious threatening of incum
bents and the most lavish offers to aspirants
but tonne men of our party were found
who would take the responsibility of en
dorsing publicly the policy of the President.
Surely the people ear be trusted. Andrew
Joh rl , Oll when an obscure member of the
United States Senate for one bold open re
buke of treason wits at once taken into
the Union ranks and as soon as there were
honors to bestow he was named second to
our chief. In this County more than 3,000
loyal men forgetting his whole record except
that one speech ea=t their ballots for him
and defended hi , fame against the assaults
of every traitor in the land. Tht:;Jugh
accident he is now invested with more
than regal power and influence, but having
in an evil moment ea , t aside his mask of
patrotism but THREE are here to day, so

We are, led to this by- an article which lip

entire soldiery of his country. We will
here give most of the article one commenting
on the paragraphs. Thu drst is as follow, :
John W. Geary tins first brought into
notice in connection with the Mexican Arai.,
having been elected Lieutenant Colonel of
the i.fd Penna. Regiment. During his term
of service he seems to have completely won
the affections of the men in his command, as
will be seen from the following resolutions
rahhed by the uteri of his regiment, on their
tiara 1,) the States, in a public indignation
meeting, held at Connellsville, on Saturday,
July lOth, 1818. Here are the resolutions,
officially published at the time by the officers
of the meeting :
Whereas, The discharge and arrival
home of the remaining members of he
Fayette Volunteers has again placed them in
the position of citizens of the Common
wfialth of Pennsylvania, and enabled them
to speak mid assert thffir rights, they now
embrace this occasion TO EX PRESS THE I R
" Resolved, That the whole course and
conduct of said Geary was INCONSISTENT
was corrupt and mercenary in all its bear
ings, characteristic of a low and groveling
creature, hunting and seeking popularity
gafning with supple tools and mercenaries,
ono of whom at least was A NOTORIOUS
The resolutions given are graced by no
names, and for ell purposes of evidence are
worthless. From their appearance we
might be justified in saying that they wore
msnufactured for this campaign l expressly-,
or that they were the production of a some
disappointed rival whose modesty alone
prevented him from getting o ,ono vote
There is one thing in however which makes
the resolution suspicious, GEARY was elected
Lieut. ColOnel.of the regiment at its organ
ization. After fighting . through from Vera
Cruz to the city of Mexico, Col. Roberts
the commander of .the regiment died. The
Resolution charges that Joins W. DIA RY

hood and deception. Now. mark, ho was

where then was ,the need or motive for his

services in its capture.
From Mexico the Volunteer 'marches. to
Kansas and makes these discoveries :
In, 1856 Geary, was appointed Governor
of Kansas by President Pierce,: ivhichpOsi
tion he held but a few months, When' ho was
removed On the ground of incompetency.
Tho ,Only official net of his administration
worthy of note was his appropriating the
inaugural address of the Governor of Massa
chusetts and sending it to the Legislature of
Kansas as his own "first annual message."
Those who delight in tracing the similarity
in the thoughts and modes of expression of
great men will find a rich field of labor in
comparing these two documents.
GEARY was not removed for incompetence.
In the short space of six months by his firm
ness and/wise administration ho suppressed a
civil wtir that had defied the efforts of his
predecessors and restored order, law and
Government ; dispersed the thousands
of border ruffians who had invaded Kansas
and also disbanded the irresponsiblehbrgan
izations of her own citizens and all this was
been accomplished without bloodshed or a
resort to force. It is a part of our history
that Cot: GEARY found Kansas inn con
dition of anarchy and civil war and left it
orderly, well governed and submissive to
authority. This disposes of the incompe
tency. On the subject of his removal_ we
respectfully submit the following document :
lA:COMPTON, Marc), 4th 1557.
" Pre7ident of the United States
" DEAR Sit :—Please accept my resigna
tion as Governor of Kansas Territory, to
take effect on the 211th of the present mUnth,
by which time you will be enabled to select
and appoint a proper successor.
With high respects, your friend and
obedient servant,
If you have anything !Imre, to say about
his removal on the ground of incompetency
or on any other ground hurry it up. With
regard to his plagiarism in the message, us
we have already Convicted you of one lie in a
paragraph, •it is hardly necessary to urge that
as Geary was a Democrat at the time and the
Governor of :Massachusetts a Republican, it
is n ' t more probable that he would steal
message than it is that we should go
thieving filnong your Cditorilik
From ]ioura our truthful biographer

Considering that. tin' rebels had left the

was indeed Somehow the joke
of the Harper's Verry Spittrain" began to
get thiough the General's cranium, and it is
needless to ud l that the city of Philadelphia
never rec,•ived the cannon.
()lie of the famous battles in which
the subject of this biographical sketeh
engaged. was the term ti~c' t'eitiot of "Snick
ersville," a graphic ace,,mil,,f which written
by the General's. private Si,:retrary, and re
vised by himself, occupied an entire page of
the Philadelphia Tmprirer. 'rho most re
markable feature of this engagement is that
not a man kilted or wounded on either
side, and Lot a prisoner taken.
In nll political campaign; there must be
allowance nr,iile for a little detraction and
ridicule but there is a point beyond which
forbearance erases to be a virtue, /mud we

(7eary with 1,0.10 men repul,ed Ashby and
Evan , with s,fou men at Ilarperl; Ferry in a
severe engagement lasting eight hours in
hich his of umand suffered severely and
he was himself wounded ; for his bran cry in
this action he nuts made a Brigadier. From
this titur to the c•lnsu of the with he was con-
stantly on the most active duty and partici
pated in nearly all the important battles in
Northern Virginia Pennsylvania, and the
South West. At Chancellorsville he received
a Mound in the breAst from which he has not
yet recovered. At Gettysburg he fought in
the front oil ('ulp's Hill, during that seven
hours' conflict which nearly annihilated the
corps which had been the pride and boast of
Lee's army, and: which gave final victory
and triumph to the l'nion arms. It isn't
11ee,,,1117 to follow our candidate through
the campaigns of Grant and Sherman in
the S.mth West, where he won honors for
himself and his country and gained the
commendation of his comrades in urine and
his superiors i command, but as an offset
to the l'o/afaccr's ridicule we will give the
opinion of his corps commander, GEN. SLO

Treachery Rewarded
Mr. ROBERT WILSON has for some years
been Postmaster 0. - Mechanicsburg, having
been appointed to that position by President
LINCOLN. As -soon as it was definitely as
certained that Mr. Lnico',lt's accidental
successor intended to go over body and soul
to the rebels and copperheads, and that a'
literal adherence to his example was the con
dition upon which alone incumbents could
retain official position, Ma. WILSON hasten
ed to announce himself an abject follower of
our modern Tyler.
In slavish subservience to orders from
headquarters, WILSON presented himself at
the great Johnson Convention in Carlisle, on
Saturday last, and elected himself Vice-Pres
ident of that tremendous gathering. It
would seem that this was degredation deep
enough to entitle the subject to an almost
indefinite tenure' of office ; but strange to
say Saturdayls papers announce the displace
ment of W.I.LsoN and the appointment an
confirmation of Colonel DAVID KIMMEL, a
brave and gallant soldier, as postmaster at
Thus the full measure of poetic justice is
meted nut to one of the swiftest converts in
all the noble band of Postmasters. He swa'l
lowed his leek with the most commendable
subserviency, and is now chewing the bitter
cud of disappointrrtant with the wryest of faces.
May the same luck befal every one of such
$ 305,864.528.20
The books of thq Internal revenue office,
in Washington, for the fiscal year ending
June 30th, have just been balanced, and it
appears that the amount of money collected
during the year, in taxes in that department,
was thi en hundred and five millions, eight
hundred and sixty-four thousand, five hun
dred. and twenty-six dollars, and twenty
cents! This is merely one of the Govern
ment taxes, and is exclusive of the customs,
or State and local taxes, which are about as
much more. Every dollar of this might
have been saved by the exercise of a proper
patriotism and fraternal feeling, in the Con
gress or 18110-1. We would have " a little
blood letting," and now we are paying for
it as abio.e.— Eouracer.
You have guessed it this time exactly.
Every dollar of this might have been saved
by the exercise of a proper patriotism and
fraternal feeling in the Congre.s of 1860-1,
but then those virtues weren't in any great
demand. Some dozen of Senators and may
be 'Clam''trod representatives who held then
and who now held the same political faith
as does the l'o/unicer, withdrew from Con
gro,s, and after getting their pay organized a
Government or their own ; stole property
that belonged to the nation; organized ar
mies, erected forts and batteries, stormed
and captured garrisons, and proclaimed pub
licly Unit they would p.'ssess themselves of
the l'apital of the nation, and in short dis
played such a want of patriotism and frater
nal feeling, that very much against our wills
we were forced to turn in and whip them
into decency. It was a pretty big under
taking and cost us ell the big figures you
have made and many more besi4. Lately
we Intro been trying to forget these impru
dent little games of Democrats, but you will
recall the subject. This Internal Revenue
is a great nuisance, for it is continually re
minding us how much Democratic treason
makes us pay yearly in taxes. You would
have a big blood letting in spite of all we
cold(' do to prevent, it and 110 W use are paying
much the larger share of the expense. We
would forget this though were you nut con
stantly reminding us of it.
Tux outrageous proposition to place 11 tax
of live cents a pound on cotton, was reduced
to three cents in the Senate, and passed. It
is the only agricultural product that has this
burden placed upon it. The West does not
vote to put it upon wheat-growers, but the
South is unrepresented and must submit to
just such taxes as the Radicals see tit to im
pose.— l'olunteer.
This is exceedingly smart. Everybody
knows that taxes on productions are paid
in the end by the consumer and that the
pr4,dneer or inn Mlftle til rer always makes him
self whole on the increased price of the ar
ticle. You anti-tariff men areal ways strong
on this argument. Well, the North and
West consume about twenty times as much
cotton as the South and will continuo to do
so for SOlllO time. Gonse.juently the great
bulk of this taxation will fall on the section
which is represented in Congress. So the
Radicals are taxing themselves—they aro
great tyrants, aren't they?

From the Sunbury Amorienti.]
In pursuancu of a call in tho Northumbr?
land Cuunt II Democrat, of honorably dis
charged soldiers, to meet at Sunbury on the
25th inst., fur the purpose of electing dele
gates to attend the Soldiers' Johnson and
Clymer Convention at Harrisburg, on the
Ist of August, 1806, a number of soldiers as
sembled in the Commissioners' Room in the
new Coert House, over which meeting Dr.
Newbaker was called to preside.
It was soon apparent that a large,majority,
perhaps three-fourths of the soldiers present,
were the friends add supporters of (Oen-
Geary. In order to avoid any confusion or
difficulty, Lieut. A. Brice, of Sunbury, , in
quired of the chairman whether the meeting
seas intended fur all honorably discharged
soldiers, or only for such soldiers as were in
favor of Hiester Clymer for Governor. The
chairman stated that the meeting was only
for soldiers favorable to Clymer. Where
upon at least three-fourths of the soldiers

adopted :
Resolved, That while we heartily endorse
Maj. Gen. John W. Geary, the Union can
didate for Governor, and while his distin
guished career, in the service of the Repub
lic, elicits our admiration, we as heartily
condemn the political action of Mester Cly
mer, the candidate of the so-called Demo
cratic party; for his persistent attempts to
thwart all legislation having for its object
the benefit of the soldiers of the country,.and
especially those of Pennsylvania, by having
voted in his place against granting them the
right of suffrage, whilst battling nobly for
the nation, giving their lives a sacrifice, that
the Republic might live.
Resolved, That we heartily endorse the
re-construction policy of Congress, and we
look to the loyal majority of that body, as
our only guarantee and hope of the Repub
lic, and o the sacred principles for which
we fought and suffered privations in the
upon field.
Resolved, That we are opposed to the re
admission of the rebellious States, until
they have given proper guarantee of loyal
ty to the Federal Government by ,stan'lrm
ing to the prescribed conditions offered by
Congress and while the so-called Democracy
are in favor of the immediate re-admission
of the rebel States, without any guarantee
of, loyalty, we are in favor of their admiss
ion after they have given evidence that they
aro sincere in their devotion to the supreme
law of the land. •
Resolved, That we are alike opposed to
the course of Andy Johnson, in appointing
rebels and their sympathizers to office, and
his proscription of mon who have nobly
stood by the Government in its hour of peril,
ince6 , our unqualified disapprobation.
Resolpcd, That the course of Edgar
Cowan in the Senate of the united States is
On avowed betrayal of tho loyal men and
soldiers of Pennsylvania ; that ho has failed
to carry out the views of the majority that
elected him to the Senate, and we call upon
him to resign his place, that a man true to the
interests of the Keystone State, and the 800,-,

The Great Telegrapiq Wonder of
the 19th Century Accomplished.
The fifth attempt to connect the old and
new world by telegrapic cable has been
crowned by success. To Mr. Cyrus W.
Field, more than to any other man, is the
credit due of achieving this great result.
His indomitable zeal and faith in the suc
cess of the undertaking accomplished it,
and to him millions of men to-day accord
the honor.
The first attempt to unite the eastern and
western continents with the telegraph was
made in 1858. The cable extended from
Valentin to Newfoundland, and was laid by
the Great Eastern. The cable employed
was 2500 miles long, and cost $485 per mile,
or, with tho cost of the shore ends and in
cidental expenses, 1,834,500. Although it
it is claimed that some messages were trans
mitted, the enterprise proved an entire fail
ure, save in so far as its results encouraged
the effort of 1800. This last effort, which
operating in concert with the other com
pleted, Progressing and contemplated lino.,
will put a girdle around the world in com
paratively a short time, and make every
country tributary to every other and benefit
the whole, is noty pronounced a success.—
The cable which began to be laid b; the
Great Eastern, from Valentin, on the 15th
of July, has reached the western coast, and
commhnication between the two continents
is now established. That. it may prove to
be permanent is our earnest prayer.
Below we give the first dispatches that
have traversed the depths of the Atlantic
front one continent to the other as quickly
ahno...t as if their distant shores were seper
atria only by a rivulet. How astonishing
are the triumphs of man's genius !
