COL. BOEHM' B. :BEATH, of Schuylkill'
"GravisEmmr," said a very` eloquent
Democratic orator, In "if the Re
publican-party succeede, nothing in the
world can pinvent colored men from
marrying .your daughteri." Ev t ery.
Domocratio would liaim- - --affirnied that
that speech was trim as Gospel. Well
gentleman r ßepublicanism was mild then,
compared With- your now departure.
How do you liko it?,
JEFF' DAVIS and Andrew Johnson;
have recently been making speeches,
and A. IT. Stephens has been writing
letters. Tlteie distinguishecl apostles of
Democracy, — are not very strongly in
'favor of the new departure, but that
don't pravept thiml from being in full
communion with the party.' There was .
a time when the Democratic party kicked
out of the organization overibOdy who
questioned the platform, but that day is
over. They aro much more liberal now.
Ix running over the aspirants for
office in the Democratic party some
weeks ago, we accidentally left out the
aspirants for the office of District At
torney. We beg the talented and crier
getie,young gentlemen, who are working
up ? nomination for this very, important
office, to believe that this omission was
unintentional. There are quite a lot",of
them, and they fire all very industrious
and Rtery hopeful. As the nominations,
however, will be made ere long,,we will
o er any men ion of I'beh nat
-then. In the meantime we hope they
will all be nominated,' it would ho so
much more interesting.
TnE Volunteer last week discourses
" In the 'first place we have not, to any
extent, run counter to the resolutions of
the State Convention. And even if' we
have, that is our own business, and we
alone are responsible. An editorial
perienco of nearly thirty years has in
duced us to, believe that it is better to
form your own opinions and then express
them, than to follow and epddrso the
opinions of others. We care. not a
baubee for the resolutions of a Conven
tion. if a Convention opposes our
views, we will oppose the views of a.
Convention. But, as we have said, we
cannot see that our sentiments, as ex
pressed in our article of two weeks since,
are antagonistic to the resolutions of
the Convention. That Convention re
cognized the validity of the recent
amendments to 'the Constitution, but it
did !iut,' recognize the manner in which
those-amendments were forced upon the
people, nor did it recognize negro
equality or the 'right of negroes to hold
high and important positions under the
We always admired the outspoken
candor of our neighbor, and we think
we like it better now than"ever before.
We will, however, ask a few questions,
which need not be answered if they are
impertinent or embarrassing.
Do the Democracy, if they succeed,
expett to be governed by the prinCiples
of their new departure?
Do they propose to attempt to repeal
the amendments to the Constitution?
Do they propose to pay the debt in
greenbacks? •
If the new departure is what the
Democracy propose to stand to if they
succeed, what good, according to their
own notions, can come from changing
the parties in control of the government?
What aro the new and living issues
they propose to tako up?
And finally, who represent tho Democ
racy of the State—the Convention that
met at Llarrigburg, or the county Con
ventions and editors that repudiate its
We are informed by very reliable gen
tlemen, who speak frcim their own per
sonal knowledge, that tho• Commissioners
of Cumberland county, in their precept
to the Assessors, requiring them to make
the enrolment of voters, give the in
structions as follows : " You Avim., xntcs
QUALIFIED VOTERS, &c, &C., and, fur
fifer; "011 application you will acid to the
list all WHITE MALE PERSONS, &(3. - " We
have not had an opportunity,to examine
this matter ourselves, but the infornia_
tion wo have received is of such a char
acter as to leave us withoht doubt, that
the histructials in this important matter
are just as above stated.
Now WO respectfully suggest to the
- dignitaries of the Commissioners' office,
that this little game isnot to he played'
in that way. Last winter's investigations
showed that' there -Arils no hesitation
on the part of our county fathers to
violate the law . when' there were con
tracts to be given out, and there seems
to ho quite as easy a state of conscience
existing, when there is a chance to de
prWe citizens of their vote. 'We have
no ; doubt, that this, outrage, as soon
as it is exposed, will be excused, on
the irounds that the old blanks were
used thoughtlessly, or that they didn't
know of tho new law ;' and, if it were not
for that unfortunate ninth .rOsolittien,
that Hie Fifteenth Amendment don't
bind conscientious citizens. However,
for the information of allconcerned, we
publish hero the last section'of the Act
of April 0, 1870, relative to elections in
this Commonwealth, and call'tile atten-,

• A groat deal has boon said with refer
ence to' - the Candidates of UM Southern
States,. and the Demeeratio :papers are:
verYprone to represent the raid element
of that section as entirely.peaotiable And

hie regfiensiblo for any troubles that May
exist in that regiOn. Hence. thOy con..
stantly denounce the Ku Klux bill and
the other Measures which have boon found
necessary to keep the people of that coun
try even in tolerable order. • Tyat 'Onk
readers May understand exactly what e
neat place of residence_ the South hi,_ we
give the following from the borreepeudent
of the New York Tribune in Georgia.
"The reason assigned for the excep
tionally bail condition of the north-West
ern counties is, that they were the scene
of a predatory guerilla warfare during .
the Rebellion, which left in the country
a class of desperadoes aCcustomed to
murder - laid robbery. There aro but
few negrocs in these counties so there is
not the cause of bad feeling against
them that exists in South Carolina,
where they have taken control of the
county offices, "without regard' to: their
capacity to fillthem. Political animdtity,
however, still occasions many 'of the out
rages. Two white men were whipped
in Chattooga County, last month, for
the sole crime of being Republicans. At
the election in December, tholiu Klux
were efficient in keeping negro& from
the polls in the section referred to. In
Floyd county, of 800 negrci voters, only
. 260, voted, and in Cho ttoo,ga connty, duly
13 negroes voted out of about 850. It is
solely on account of the political results
it accomplishes that the Klan is allowed
to exist by the influential and, respect
able citizens, who could suppress it in a
week if they would. The phinters are
opposed to it, because it interferes with
their laborers. Many of the best farms
Itivated — on account — a — Ms — . is.
organization of labor caused by the Ku
Klux ; but the planters, isolated as they
aro, and exposed to night attacks, have
not dared to set on foot any movement
against the order. ; In the towns. where
slch a movement should originate with
the officers of the law, the sympathy of
the people is emphatically with the Ku
Klux. The little 'court house towns in
' Georgia arc hot beds of Rebel sentiments,
which are fostered and stimulated by the
lawyers and politicians who Intro nothing
to lose by the disorders they encourage.
The planters are conservative, and want
peace and good feeling with the negroes,
without whose labor they are ruined.
The real leaders of the Ku Klux are
UM Court House and tavern politidians,
and the rank and file is composed of the
idle, ignorant. and worthless poor white
element, which is unquestionably the
worst class of people to be found any
where in the United States. They are
deplorably ignorant; but have no desire
for education for themselves, or, their
children. They are wretchedly poor,
but the desire for wealth never stimulates
them to steady labor. They are without
ambition to better their condition. They .
are coarse, cruel, and vindictive, and in
every way deserve their appellation of
the ' low down' people. To understand
the liu Klux problem, the existence and
character of; this class in Southern so=
ciety-musthuborn in mind ; for, without
it, Ku Kluxiam-would be impossible. To
parade at night in a mysterious masquer
ade, terrifying,penceable people, has a '
strong fascination for men of this class.
The Governor has-in his office a number
of Ku Klux uniforms captured recently
in Chattooga county. The costume con
sists of red flannel MVOS; black blouse,
trimmed with red and- gathered at the
waist, and a black `aj ml covering the
(ace and falling clown to the breast, with
a cape behind. The holes cut for the
eyes mu bordered With white, and from
the mouth
, protrudes a piece of red
flannel representing a long tongue. For
a head piece, 'real horns are sometimes
worn, and often a common felt hat or
some unebuth device of paper. A man
of considerable nerve would be frightened
by titintpearance at night al,' hand of
men tricked out in this dismal and fan
tastic garb-; and it is easy to imagine
with what terror they inspire the poor,
ignorant negroes on the plantations,
who know that their errand is • elWays
violence, and often murder. The mys
tery of the organization and the fantastic
disguise has naturally a -great charm for
thin Ku Klux ;- and to this is added a
spic() of danger, a sense of power, and a
decided pleasure in breaking the laws
and defying the authority of the Radical
State Government, which they have been
taught by suck men as Stephens and
Toombs to' look upon as a tyrannical
usurpation which had - no claim to their
obedience or respect." •

nonce which always, attends• a man who

His politicalhistory may be summed tia
hi the statement, 'that ho :served . OF
terms in the Ohio, Legislature, thr i ce
terms in the National Congress, . and
once' received the: Democratic nomina
tion for Governor of Ohio, for which he
was beaten by a majority of one hundred
thousand votes. On the affairs of the
country, ho exerted no influence what
ever. Every measure he resisted was
successful, and the very last effort of his,
life. was the attempt"to lead his party to
acquiesce in and endorse measures in op
position ,to which. he had sustained
odium, defeat and persecution..
Mr. Vallandigham was personally a
man of integrity and respectability. Ho
had fair abilities and energy and am
bition sufficient to bring himself into no
tice under any circumstances, During
the mighty events of the war his stub
bornness and lack of ordinary foresight
'nvelved4iim—in—complications —which
brought him into a prominence that many
men of Vastly greater abilities failed to
acquire. But he holds his claim to great
ness by no stronger title than this. Ho
was no statesman in any fairsebse of the
word, nor was he even a very astute politi
cian. The man who failed tosee, or see
ing, failed to accept the necessity of
sustaining the Government, against all
forcible , resistance to its authority, or
who endeavored to place himself in op
position to a policy which expediency, as
well as justice and humanity, demanded
has surely no right to bdrecognized as'a
statesman. While we freely forgive the
errors of his public life, and lament his
untimely and sudden death, we insist
that his public record had nothing in it
which entitled hiin to be ranked with
those whose. names should be handed
down to posterity.
MAT distinguished Democrat, Hon.
Jefferson Davis, Presit of the South
ern Confederacy, in his rEtb - nt speech,
made some very• startling- announce
ments. Mr Davis, it will be seen, gives
'up none of the treasonable Ideas, which
cost this country so great an expenditure
of blood and treasure ; he claims that the
result of the war decided nothing - ; ho
denies that ho 'did anything' wrong or
that he or his people have. any crimes to
acknowledge-or be ashamed of. In short,
ho has as little regard for the authority
of the Government 'as ho had when
elected President of the Confederacy.
Read the following extract from -his
speech, and he convinced'aneW of the
clangers which must follow the success
of the party to which Mr: Davis belongs :
- "Statd sovereignty must again be-re
stored, or else the Republic of America
is a failure. Despotism cannot be exor
cised under a republican form of Gov
ernmeht, and, my friends, if you can
but wait all will be well. If any of us
die before the day of peace and liberty
+dawns, lett j tis die in the faith that it will
conic at last. The people of the North
will never. surrender their right ; .and
when they see the danger at home then
they will need your aid and will conic to
you, and then you will be crowned with
victory and triumphant succosaLAp
plause.] Idm not of those who "ac
cept the situation." I accept nothing.
Those cant phrases that we hear so much
of about "accepting the situation" and
about °Ur rights having been submitted
to the "arbitrament of the sword" are
but the excuses of cowards (Applause.]
I admit that power prevails over truth ;
,I. admit that power,,is so great that it
would be folly t 6 resist it, and therefore
I am iu favor, mySelf, of being acquies
cent and I advise you to the same
course, but I do not admit that our
rights have over been submitted . to the
arbitrament of the sword, Who has
the power to submit your liberties to
the arbitrament of battle?
You never delegated that power to
your representatives. I, as your Execu
ti've, never claimed it, and never,dying
or living, will I admit it. E Applauso.]
And then, my friends, about this much
talked-of subject of "accepting the situ
tion." You are not called upon to ac
knowledge that you have done wrong,
unless you feel it. I doll% believe I did
any wrong, and therefore I don't ac
knowledge it. All that a Government
has a right to claim fromany of its sub
jects is that they will quietly submit to
the law.
ARE colored men regarded by the
Democracy as an inforier race, since the
announcement of the new departure, or
how is-it?

denounce all who favored equal rights,

Destructive Fire in Buffalo.
BUFFALO, June 15.—At 10 a. in. to
day a fire broke out in the engine room
of the Buffalo Express newspaper estab
lishment, and before it could be got under
control, the building (a four story brick
one) WaS almost totally destroyed. The
fire spread with such rapidity that the
workmen in the qiird story had some
difficulty in making their way to the
street. The Express Company's loss has
not yet been ascertained, but will pro
bably amount to $30,000. They are in
sured for $lB,OOO. The greatest lose
was sustained by water, as it was neces
sary to actually flood' the building, in
order to gain 'the mastery of the flames.
The books and businegs documents were
saved. . ,
The second story of the building was
occupied by Messrs. Horsman & Rock
well, job publishers, as a press room.
The loss sustained by that firm -will
amount to• about $5,000; insured for
The carriage manufactory of Mr. D.
Taylor, and the establishnient of Hart,
Bell Hart, in the vicinity, were dam
aged by the water to a considerable ex
tent. They are, however, fully insured.

Passing through the beautiful and rich
folds of tho Cumberland Valley, over
ono of the best constructed railroads in
the, country, we reached Harrisburg
where ;we met a largo number of the

companied by their wives, ready for.. the

Through the courtesy of ]III•. Fiske,
the gentlemanly Superintendent of the
Northern Central Railway, we were
furnished free passes over that. road.
For this evidence of liberal spirit, and

Mr. Fiske is warmly and thankfully re

could ever need any defense there are
very many pens quite eager to under
take the task.

existed. On Wednesday morning, at
10 a. In., through the liberality of Mr.
Peter Herdic, the excursionists were
taken on three line little steamers up
the river to see the great 'Williamsport
boom, of dhieh so much has been said
and written.: The hooin consists of a
succession Of-gters extending for sonic
tun miles above and below the city, and
between each piei- are piled vast Illtlll
- of higs, each with its particular
trade mark. The cost of the booms is
variously estimated from $1,000,000 to
K 5510,000, while the number of logs
detained in the boom is annually about
220,000,000 feet, or enough to supply the
whole Pennsylvania Market. The boom
is owned by a chartered company, and
privileges have been given them by the
State Legislature. One dollar and thirty
cents per thousand feet is charged for
the storage of logs, mid none are al- -
lowed to pass without paying tribute.
In this, as•.,igalmost everything else of
any great mag,nittule, about Williams
port, Peter Herdic is the leading spirit,
and the present growth and -prosperity
of the city is mainly due to,his individ
ual exertions mill perseVeranes. To him
the city is indebted for its miles of Ni
cholson pavement - ; .. and it was Only by
long, determined effort that he succeeded
in getting it laid. Now, along the whole
distance of the street, magnificent villas
have been erected on huge lots, well
