Democratic State Committee.
A meetinsr of the Democratic State Com
mittee will be held at the ST. CHARLES I
HOTEL, on TUESDAY, the 3rd day of
JULY, 1866, at 11 o'clock a. m.
WJI. A. WALLACE, Chairman.
The undersigned proposes to furnish the
Democrat and Sentinel, during the approach
ing campaign to new subscribers at a re
duced price to clubs, for the period of four
months July, August, September and Oc
tober upon the following terms.
5 copies to oae address, - - - - $3 00

"We tLus offer the paper below cost, being
at the rate of $1 80, 1 50 and $1 20 per
year, for the purpose of getting it into more
general circulation. There are 1500 Demo
crats In the county, who do not take a coun
ty paper. This can. all be avoided; if our
Democratic friends sacrifice a little time in
trying to get their neighbors to subscribe
for the paper. A Club of ten ($5 00) cad
be raised in aDy township in the county if
some one will make the effort- We hope
our friends in the different boroughs and
townships will brinj this matter before
No attention will be paid to orders, unless
accompanied by the ca.-h". Address,
The Kind of Organiztion We Need.
The Lancaster Intelligencer makes the
following sensible remarks which are ap
plicable to this section :
The Democracy should organize clubs
immediately in every election district in
the State. The object of these clubs
should be organization. There is no spe
cial necessity for much speech making yet.
That will be done in due time and done
with effect. When the appeal comes to
be made to the people of Pennsylvania on
the great issued now agitating the nation,
we have no doubt as to .he response which
will come swelling up from the great pop
ular heart. The stump will be more po
tent than it ha9 ever been before. The
Kadicals cannot defcud their policy, and
it will.be repudiated with scorn and loath
ing. We shall have the masses with us
But enthusiasm alone never yet accom
plished great results. We need organic
tion, close, perfect working organization.
There is much other work to be done be
sides making and listening to speeches.
In the New England States and in New
York the Kopub'icans have had an effi
cient organization for years which reached
to every school district in those states.
Every voter has been registered and mark
ed as with them, against them, or doubt
ful. They could count up and ascertain
very nearly what the result would be be
fore an election occurred. Such organiza
tion as that is a most potent engine of
power. That is just what the Democra
cy must do in Pennsylvania and elsewhere,
if they would win. The time has gone
by when elections can be carried without
organization. We have a clear Demo
cratic majority of votes in Pennsylvania
if they are all polled. To do that, must
constitute the chief work of the Democ
racy. It is to employ every honorable
means to accomplish such a result that
we urge the formation of clubs in every
election district in the state. That should
be the especial object to which the town
ship clubs should direct their attention.
The voters should all be registered, mark
ed and known. Then the potent agency
of personal appeal must be 6uper-added
to that of public speaking. It will be
found to be infinitely more potent in the
end. There are thousands of men who
would vote with us if their minds were
disabused of predjudice. Such men must
be furnished with proper reading matter.
The circulation of such literature and the
adoption of proper means for polling the
vote of every man who is ready to repu
diate the radical platform and the candi
dates who stand upon it, is the task set
before the working Democrats of Penn
sylvania. It can be done by proper concert o&
action. The first step to take is to form
a Democratic club in every election dis
trict. We hope the Democracy in every
district in the county will take this mat
ter up and urge forward the work until it
is fully accomplished. If it is well done,
success is certain beyond a peradveture.
Unless it is done we shall be defeated
again as we were last fall, when fifty thou
sand Democratic voters failed to reach the
The Voice of a True Soldier.
No man in the army from Pennsylva
nia fought more gallantly during the re
bellion than Col. W. W. II. Davis, of
the Doylestown Democrat. Scorning to
fawn and cringe to secure promotion he
stood by his principles throughout the con
test. He commanded a brigade almost
from the commencement of the war, with
his original rank of Colonel. He has
been brevetted a Brigadier since the close
of the war. The numerous honorable
wounds which he bears on his body attest
io his devotion to the Union and prove
his undaunted bravery. Such a man has
a right to speak to the soldiers of Penn
sylvania. With his left hand, his right
having been shattered by a shell, he
writes for his paper, the Doylestown Dem
"No one can longer be made the dupe
of false "glitter and show," nor deceived
by the hollow cry of "patriotism and loy
alty." Ihe soldiers who vere once im
posed upon by the sophistry of the liadi
cals, find their pretensions stripped bare.
They were taught that they were fighting
for the supremacy of the Union and the
Constitution, aud now that their object
was accomplished, is the victory to be
taken from their hands, and are they to
be told that the war was only to subserve
partizan schemes? Ask the wife who
sent forth her husband to maintain the
nation's honor, if he went to force people
out, or to keep States in. Ask the fond
mother who packed the knapsack of her
son, her bright and lovely boy, and sent
him to battle with willing words, but
heavy heart, from which conflict he ne'er
returned ask her as she sits pensively in
the summer twilight, remembering how
she sat there a few years ago, with her
only son by her side, and she will tell you
while tears leap from her eyes, of the im
pulse which moved her child. She will
tell you that for the Union he fought and
died, the whole Union represented by the
flag with thirty-six glittering, stars upon
it, one for every State, and not eleven
erased from the rich emblazonry of its
folds. Will the Kadicals dare, even with
all their brazen effronterjr, go to the coun
try upon the issues so plainly made up.
When the soldiers fought against treason,
are they to be told they fought for treason;
when they fought to keep States in Vie
Union, are they to be told they fought to
drive Suites out f Before another year
these questions are to be decided. We
are also to decide between a noble Cauca
sian destiny, and the blighted and misera
ble condition of African equality. We
are to decide whether the withering and
baleful influences of Radicalism are to
prevail over the broad and generous view
of Conservatism. So plainly are the is
sues drawn. Where shall we each 6land ?
Party lines are not drawn so closely that
once faithful adherents to a now broken
and despicable cause should hesitate to
march under our banner. We are pledg
ed to a restoration of these States to their
proper functions under the Constitution,
and to oppose all attempts of the men
who would elevate, for party purposes,
even Satan himself to be their equal. But
the signs of the times indicate promising
" our power is ready;
Our lack is nothing but our leave; L'acbeth
Is ripe for shaking, and the powers above
Put on their instruments. Keceive what
'cheer you may;
The night is long that never finds the day."
Let us all join in the grand army, and
we will hurl trom the high places the men
who daily disgrace them, and restore to
power, now so justly merited, the party
which for forty consecutive years ruled
the country and elevated her to such a
pitch of grandeur and renown. Then will
the American Union . no longer be a by
word of reproach among other nations,
but her position will comport with the dig

"A few evenings since" the editor of
the Armstrong Republican "had the pleas

coxcomb." On the contrary, like Joe
Ilooker, he found him to be a very "hum

humble when he is out begging votes; but,
like lacquer, his humility covers a large
quantity of worthless "timber."

THE TEN PER CENT. TAX.
Imlay & Bicknell's Bank Note Repor
ter dated June 15, says : There are so
many incoherent statements made about
the tax that will be imposed on the issues
of banks organized under State laws, paid
out by banks on and a fter the 1st of July,
18GG, that it is important for every busi
ness man to understand the law. The
Act of Congress, of March 3d, 1SG5,
Sec. G. And be it further enacted,
That every National Banking Association,
shall pay a tax of ten per cent, on the
amount of notes of any State Bank or State
Banking Association paid out by them,
after the first day of July, 1866.
It will be noticed that the tax is im
posed only on bunks paying out other
notes than those of National Baifks, or
United States legal tenders, and that in no
case can the tax be imposed on individuate,
merchants, brokers, or agents, (other than
Banks,) paying them out, or using them
in their business.
The circulation of the notes of State banks
among individuals, is in no way interfered
with by this law. Holders of these notes
need be under no apprehension of
any loss by the ten per cent, tax imposed,
as Banks alone are subject to that penalty
for paying them out alter the time speci
fied in the law, for as some of our eotem
porarics remark, there will really be no
tax at all on State bank circulation, be-
causo no one but banks are taxed for pay
ing them out, and they will not be under the
penalty. Private bankers will spring up
throughout the country, and will buy up
from brokers the bills of the State banks,
and use them as circulation for the people,
while the State banks will close up, to
some extent, after providing for the re
demption of their notes when returned to
their redeeming agent. We think ' that
the effect of this will be that less deposits
will be made with banks, and more with
private bankers and banking officers, who
are left free to receive and pay out State
bank notes. Shrewd bankers see this,
and already some changes have leen
made ; or rather, banks closed (both Na
tional and State) and private banking of
fices opened in their places ; and doubtless
many more changes will occur of the
same kind, as very good reasons will ex
ist for the changes, which are, that by
closing the banks they avoid heavy taxes
which the States are attempting to impose
on both National and State ; as private
bankers, they are not liable to a tax on
the currency they pay out, but are left free
to receive and pay out State bank notes ;
and now that the banking business is less
profitable than for the past few years,
theso considerations have weight.
How They Love the Soldier. -
The following pictures, which we clip
from the news columns of our exchanges,
need but little comment ;
"A soldier, sick and destitute, is now
lying at Globe Hotel. Yesterday they
were talking of sending him to the poor
house. If there is any loyalty and pat
riotism left in Indianapolis, that means
anything more than words," &c Indi
anapolis Jcrald, June G.
The following is from the Cleveland
Herald, of June 12, and occurred in the
loyal city of Cleveland :
A sad Affair A poor soldier's wid
ow, living in the house adjacent to the
Bethel Church, on Water street, had her
household goods thrown into the 6treet
late yesterday evening by a constable. It
is said her rent was paid up to last Fri
day. She has been in the house about
two years, and supported herself and two
little children by washing. All who are
acquainted with her, in that part of the
city, represent her to be a very good and
industrious woman. The broad canopy of
heaven was the covering of her houso last
And here is the following from a Wash
ington dispatch of the Associated Press,
a few days ago :
"Gen. Howard has begun the distribu
tion of the 825.000 appropriation by Con
gress for the releif of destitute and suffer
ing freedmen in this district. A board
has been appointed, with Dr. Ivelburn,
chief of the surgical bureau as president,
and the city divided into two districts,
with a superintendent for each."
The poor Cleveland widow of a dead
soldier, living next door to a Church she
and her two little children thrown into
the street by a constable, and passing the
weary night in the open air ! What an
inducement for a white man to die for his
country I. The woman was white her
babes were white. Had they been black,
half a dozen long-nosed philanthropists in
green spectacles would have come to the
rescue. Venango Spectator. ,

the Kump Congress from Pennsylvania,

no foundation whatever in common sense,
we have no doubt that the House will
speedily pass it.
DEATH OF GENERAL CASS.
Our telegraphic column, yesterday, says
the Pittsburgh Post of the 19th instant,
contained the announcement of the death
of the great Michigan statesman General
Lewis Cass, in his eighty third year.
He was a New Englander by birth but
moved to Ohio at an early age. When
quite young he was elected to the Ohio
Legislature and remained almost con
stantly in office until he left Mr. Bccuas
an's Cabinet. He was Governor, Cabi
net officer, Minister, to France and United
States Senator ; his most remarkable per
formances were his pamphlet while in
France upon the quintuble treat', his ad
vocacy of fifty four forty while a Senator,
and his support of the compromise meas
ure of 18.30.
General Cass was, from his return from
France, up until 1852 a standing candi
date for the Presidency. In 1844 the
enemies of Van Bcukx fixed upon the
General as their candidate ; but they fail
ed to nominate him, owing to the adroit
management of Van Buren's friends with
drawing his name and substituting that of
Governor Polk, of Tennessee. In 1848
the General was nominated at Baltimore,
but the Barnburners under the lead of
Van Buren got up their Buffalo platform
dodge, dividing the Democracy and secu
ring the election of General Taylor. In
1852 the contest for the Democratic nom
ination at Baltimore was so fierce be
tween the friends of Cass, Buchanan,
Marcy, and Douglas, that they were,
after five days battling all withdrawn and
the nomination given to General Piekck.
After this the General withdrew from the
position of a Presidential aspirant, and in
185 6 he favored the nomination of Mr.
Slavery in Massachusetts.
Moore's "Notes on the History of Sla
very in Massachusetts," just published by
the Appletons, is an interesting and time
ly work. It appears from unimpeachable
data, that of all the stringent slave codes
which have existed in this country, that
of the Commonwealth which claimed two
hundred years ago, and claims now, to be
a moral prodigy, was the most arbitrary,
godless and cruel. But this is not all.
Mr. Moore shows that the laws establish
ing slavery in Massachusetts were never
formally repealed, and that it only ceased
to exist there by reason of the dying out
or removal of the negroes ! It seems,
therefore, that the old Puritan Common
wealth was, in point of law, a slave State
until 18G6, when the Constitutional
amendment terminated slavery forever
within the limits of the United States.
C3In a discussion in Congress on the
14th of June, Mr. Harris, on referring to
the assassination of President Lincoln,
Beferring to the assassination of Lin
coln, he said: Mary Surrett was convict
ed of course. Sue was tried by a court
martial. Her immediate execution was
ordered. She entreated for four days to
enable her to overcome the shock, and the
better to prepare her soul to meet her God.
"Not an hour," thundered forth the voice
from the War Department. "On with
the gallows, the coilin and grave, the an
gels of Heaven shall not rejoice over this
repentant sinner." Agents of mercy
sought the ear of a higher authority, and
probably a more merciful heart. But
Preston King was janitor that day, and
they were excluded. Where is Preston
King ? Echo answers, where. She was
thus executed speedily, and notwithstand
ing application had been made, in behalf
of her heart-broken daughter, for her re
mains, those remains are still in the keep
ing of the War Department. Pontius
Pilate delivered the body of Jesu3 to Jo
seph of Arimathea, but a worse than
Pontius Pilate is here.
"It is true that wo are completely un
der the saddle of Massachusetts and Con
necticut, and they ride us very hard, cru
elly insulting our feelings, as' well as ex
hausting our strength and subsistance.
Their natural friends, the three other East
ern States, join them from a sort of fami
ly pride, and they have the art to divide cer
tain other parts of the Union so as to
make use of them to govern the whole."
The words, in which the present situa
tion of these States is so exactly descri
bed, are not ours; they were written in

What Constitutes a Barrel.
An important question was settled at
the last term of one of our Courts, of
which our oil men will do well to take
heed. A purchaser contracted for one
hundred barrels at 89,00, but sent to the
well barrels which considerably overrun
forty-two gallons each. The producer
filled eighty-five barrels of these, making
4,200 gallons, one hundred barrels of 42
gallons each, but declined to fill any more.
He was sued for the fifteen barrels claim
ed. On the trial it was claimed that the
act of Assembly provided that 31$- gal
lons make a barrel, and that no custom,
nothing but express agreement between
the parties, could reckon a barrel at more.
Consequently, the claimant, instead of re
ceiving his fifteen barrels, as sued for,
was compelled to account for the excess
of 4,200 gallons, over one hundred bar
rels, reckoning each barrel at 3H gallons.
The sharp practice, therefore, of some oil
purchasers, who had been increasing the
capacity of their barrels, will not 8tand a
legal test unless they specify the number
of gallons held by their barrels, they can
not recover in a court of law, over the
31i gallons fixed, by the act of Assembly.
