Tin recess of Congress has .been
still further extended. No session was
held on the 10th inat.,.and hone will
be held until the regular day for meet

THE country will be gratified to learn
that Gen. Reynolds, the 'Military Com
mander whose inefficiency is reSponsi
ble in some degree for the reign of terror
which has- prevailed •in Texas, has
been superseded by Gen. Canby, who
now goes to that district with full dis

already bears fruit. -
AN affair similar - to the " Memphis
piracy" has occurred in Florida. Two,
thousand stand of State arms were ta
ken from a railroad train, in which
they were being _conveyed to Talla
hasse, and scattered along the road for
several miles. What the lcu-Klux,„

the news of Grant's electicUp has not , 1
yet penetrated the Florida jungles.

the - war symphthized with our cause
as the common cause oS Humanity and
Liberty, art " erremen men like Laird

"ral their support of one of the most
ions systems of oppression, are nat
firally shocked at the intimacy which
has sprung up between these inveter
ate enemies of free America and the,
present Embassador of the IL States
in England. It is certainly a remar
kable position forthe Embassador of a
. great country to have the enemies Of
his own country for friends, and the
friends of his country for opponents.
THE next United States Senate will
be almost entirely Republican, tint fonr

body, Messrs, Hendricks, of Indiana,
Rnekalaw, of Ponnoylvora,Tl lade,
of Wisconsin, and - Dixon; - of Connec

these, Patterson, of Tennessee, gives
'place to Gov. Brownlow. On the other
hand the Democrats have two acces

. of Republicans—
Thurman, of Ohio, and - Casserly, of.
California. The next Senate-will there

How Grant Received the Ncirs.
A special despatch to the Philadel-
phi.% Morning Pint, dated Galena, 111.,
,November 4th, says : The room in
which Gem Grant sat last evening was
crowded with Congressmen, judges,
town and county politicians, army of
ficers, and reporters, :111- apparently :
more eager than the man on whose ac
count they were gathered, while they

from Petroleum ,Y.'Nasby, who for
warded-his resignation as PostmaSter,
and announced that he had gone into

torrent of hews and congratulation was
incessant, interrupted only by the com
ments of the little party. afore than
the requisite number of_electeitatiotes_

'break that we made on that average
WlO in the campaign of 1.866; when
dovernor Geary succeeded iri reducing
'theater Clymer's majerity to fivehun
dred and thirty-seven. Last year the
Pemocraey again' rallied and brought
up their majority for Judge Shorewood
to seven hundred and eighty. When
this campaign ripened, it is true, we lead
the. prestige of the name of a great
Soldier as our emendate for the Pres
idency,and. of. -the name of a great
States Man as our candidate for the Vice
Presidency, while their candidates were
offensive to a goodly number of the
memhers of their party. 'art, on . the
other — hind, they had the weightier
advantage of having enlisted in their
ranks every man - Whose political faith
was founded either upon prejudice
against the negro, or upon sympathy
with the "Lost Cause." These two die. ,
— gracefUT feelings were the main-spring
of their canvass. And still further, had
they the addition - al advantage of hav
ing the whole of the county patron
age in their hands, and most unscrup
ulously did they use it. From the
smirk of the Clerk in the Commission
ers' offiee, to the greenbacks of the itin
erant eatididiite for Congress—al
everything—was used by them.
deed, we even' heard of one man who
voted the Democratic ticket simply
-because - the Commissioners' -office to
him is so pleasant a place to loaf during
the long winter evenings in the full en
joyment of the glare of gas-light, at
the expense of the county. In addi
tion to these influences, - were used
pi.omises of position on the county
ticket in years to come, with the bland ,
ishing inaucement of the full enjoy
ment. and- fruition of the emolu
ments thereof. Against all these odds
did we enter the campaign, and how
glorious a result have we accomplished!
At the October election -we reduced
, the Copperhead "majority from seven
hundred and eighty last year to six
luitdred and seven. Inspirited brow
snetes'S we again went to worlti-and
the result. is, that ; 'open the largest
vote ever_polled in the county, we re
duced their majority, on the 3d inst.,
to'four hundred and twenty-three.. The
total . vote in NON-ember reaching 8,7',
while that of October, the largest vote
ever cast up to that. time, was but
Bfi677showing an increase in Novein-
ber of ninety-iiix. The"' Republican
vote increased one hundred and forty,
and the Democratic rote fell- short
Sorely this is-a result over which
the Republicans of this county have
great reason to rejoice, amt one by
which they should gieatly profit. We
have broken in upon_ them and. we
should follow up our adyarrtage. Now
when the heat of the conflict i, over,
and ',arty animosiffs have almost en
tirely subsided: is the time to reason
with !limiest Democrats and e n deavor
to persuade them to leave their old
organization, and unite' u ith the great
-Union party which has so late achiev
ed the greatest political victory in the
history of our country. Men wilrnow
whose prtjudice and partisan feeling a
few weeks ago would not permit them
to pay attentiomto anything outside of
their own journals and speakers. If
our friends lot make and keep up a
quiet. earnest effort, we will be able to
carry this county-long before
Presidential election. Surely to accom
plisb sucha result is worth working for,
and surely our recent successes should
encourage us to make the effort. Let
each one, then, vie with the Mite , . in
the great and good work It is in the
tidiness of time that Cumberland coun
ty must be resoued from the control of
the corrupt and degenerate Democracy.
Vice President Colfitx delivered a
speech to the citizens of South Bend,

in which he said : " The sorelytried

must be enhanced when he reflects that
this position is destined to _been perma

polity; is- for ever at an end, and that
if it again enters . the field. as -a Roll
tical organization, it must do so as a
new party, under new men, and with
new prizwePleS.
During the-many—years-the Democ—
racy controled the political destinies of
the State, but little was done by them
either to promote its interests, or 'sue
tain its honor. They cared more -for
Southern interests than they did for
those of our own State and whilst
'cotton was made king, our manufac
tures were by- them left to languish or
perish. Their great object seethed to
be_ to secure for. themselVos and their
-friends the petty offices in the disposal
of the National Executive, And to Be
th/re these, they bowed down in abject
'submission to the haug,hty knifings of
the South. This subserviency was re
warded by bestowing upon the leaders
of the party occasional sops of patron
age, and by calling Pennsylvania the
g' saddle-horse"
.-of the party. The
South secured the real power, took to
itself all the highest honors, and gave
full protection to their own great inter
ests: In ,so humiliating, a positiortwot/
our State placed under Democratic
rule, that a shrewd politician of—that'
day called her " a blind giant, stagger
ing under the blows- dealt her by her
friends."' .
But, thank Heaven ! this state .o
things is now at an end. The sway
of the Biglers, the Blacks, the Jones,
the Wallaces, and politicians of that
stamp, is now at an end, and let us hope
we may ne;er again experience any
thing so corrupt and humiliating-The
people of the Commonivealth, who bore
with them so long . and so pfitiently,
have rgudiated and discarded them

We have worked hard to securethis

The campaign that is now so happily

party in its defence of the Union, and

prom ainued also upon the conduct of
the Copperheads then arid since, and
upon the protma k es they liaveMade in

with four-fifths of the Senate to uphold
the new Administration, the country
*enters upon a renewed and prosperous
repose, . •
The following brief article, from the
Pittsburgh Gazette,' contains more
truth than poetry, and., is exactly •to
the point•
,The bitter' experience •of the war
has. wrought little .i apparent change in
the political principles and sentiments
qt the white portion of the population
of the Southern States.
The States that went into Rebellion
:were.-undue _Democratic_controli .
they,had been under other manage-_
ment they would haTie4'emained in the
Union and - obedient . to . the-laws.----
The white inhabitants of those
Stites are as strongly Democratic now
as when they plunged the nation into
civil war; And beeftuiie Democratic, arc
just as hostile to the government, this
day as they wore in, 1860.
That - this Democratic element Con
stitutes a majority of the Southern'
people, We do not believe;-but by in
,numberable murders and lesser vio
lence's, systematically committed be
fore the elections, they effeetually in
timidated many ;of their loyal neigh
hors, both white and black.
' But for the election of GRANT and
COLFAX:no - prominent loyalist would
to-day be safe from bodily 'harm in
those. States- Whatever protection
they now enjoy they owe to the de
cision made at the ballot-boxes. That
decision; with all that• it implies,, must
be enfOreed, and thrOugh its enforce
ment alone will be found the way to'
Peace, Order and Fraternity.
Tupu.o are serious apprehensions,
that the increasing excitement against
the American residents, in Hayti, may.
result in ;outrages upon their-individu
al-and National rights, requiring the
naval and perhaps ‘, the military inter
vention,',Of this GoVernment for thqir
protection, such a: - case would pre
sent to the adherenis of, the late Gen.
Ht:allt an excellent opportunity for
wreaking their still unsatisfied ven
geance against - the "naygura." It
"would also be,well forthem to remem
ber that, 'as Camilla and Opelousas

the. safe exemplification of Derriocratio

SOUTHERN,REBELS will bluster, for
a while, but we have no serious appre
hensions that they will fit:tempt:any
Practical denionstration of their:reiiicf4•
lance to -accept the present sittiatinht:
We annex a colledtion of- gemn, from'
thn; Memphis Avalqnche, of *ovcrnbor
4th, toillustrate'their first agonies:
"We now say our friends must take
care of themselves,' Heretofore we
have advised our, friends to be cool and
wise—to discard—anger and passion;
but since prudence and wisdom bawl'
made no impression,, we only , ask-our'
friends' to take care of .themselves.
We can only say that, for . the future, •
the Avalanche will be more bitter and
proscriptive upon the carpet-bagger in
our midst than heretofore. It may be
they have forced us to become Sam- -
sons, to pull down , the pillars of the.
Republic. The' vote of the North,
yesterday, branded us as outlaws. Bo
"Since prudence and submission to
-humiliation and degradation bring us
no relief,,we feel no iuterestin the Re
public; and while we have heretofore
counseled prudence and restrained . the
band of violence towards those who
have brought upon us all our woes - , we
can only say to our friends, despise
the Government that oppresses you,
and visit a just and merited retribution
upon the thieves and Carpet baggers
who have made us slaves. Grant-is
President. We are at his mercy: • But
of the bond-holders and the snobs of
the North expect to roll in luxury and
maintain their wealth by oppression
and. tyranny, Ley will be sadly mis
taken, for the tone and acts_
of the
'Southern people toward the thieves
and plunderers in our midst,- during
the next
. six nionths, :will teach them
that history is repeatbit itself, and'
That it will bankruiiohe - Gibvernment
to suppress the heaving emotions and
the uprising of a people.who, once freb,
can never be slaves."

Vice-P esidential candidate of the De

early hour Wednes,day morning, and
stopped at the 'fretnont House.—,
Scarcely a rn(inher of his party called

from confronting their nominee. After

remarked that be bad been beaten like

Were severally called upon and delivered

From the last number of • the Pennsyl
vania Setioq Journal we clip the follow
ing tensible advice on the importance of
directors visiting the schools: •
"The duty of visiting the schools is con
sideredf one of the most important &Ales
that directors have to diAcharge in the
administration of the system. The law
maaes the duty imperative, cud no person
should accept the office of school director
unless he is willing to perform it. When
well done, its effect is always to make the
schools more efficient. It stimulates the
pupils in their studies. It ()nab] toc-_
tors to ascertain the exact concliCi of
the .schools, ;schoolhouses and" schin:l
grounds. On , the whole, so high a value
does the Department set upon the local
