June28,-tf Hemlock, Cambria co., Pa.
The river flowed with the light on its
And the waves went eddying by ;
And the round red sun went down in the
When my love's loving lips to my lips were
Under the evening sky
Now weeping alono by the river I fitray.
For my love has left me this many a day;
Left me to droop and die.
As the river flowed then the river Govs
In ripple and foam and spray ;
On by the church and round by the hill.
And under the sluice of the old burnt mill.
And out by the fading day ;
But I love it no more, for delight grows
When the song is sung and the tale is
And the heart is given away ;
Oh, river, run fast! Oh, river, run fast!
Oh, weeds, float out to the sea !
For the sun has gone down on my beautiful
And the hopes that like bread on the waters
I cast
Have drifted away like thee !
So the dream it is fled .and the day it is
And my lips stilFmurmer the name of
Who will never come back to me !
Upon Uccetvlng I lie Proceedings of
tUt Katlonal Union Convention,
Washington, Aug. 13, 180G.
The committee, consisting of two dele
gates from each Slate, appointed by the
National Union Convention to wait upon
the President with an official copy of the
proceedings of the Convention, called upon
the President at one o'clock to-d:y, and
after the presentation address by Hon.
Reverdy Johnson, the President said :
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the
Committee ; Language is inadequate to ex
press the emotions and feelings produced
bv this occas-ion. Perhaps I could ex
press more by permitting silence to speak,
and you to infer w hat 1 might and ougli!
to say. I confess, that notwithstanding
the experience I have had in public lite,
and the audiences 1 have nduresscd, this
occasion and this assemblage arc well cal
culated to, and do overwhelm me.
As I have said, I have not language to
convey adequately my present feelings and
emotions. In listening to the addresses
which your eloquent and distinguished
chairman has just delivered, the proceed
ings of the convention, as they transpired,
recurred to my mind. Seemingly I par
took of the inspiration that prevailed in
the convention, when I received a des
patch, sent by two of its distinguished
members, conveyin in term3 the scene
which has just been described, of South
Carolina und Massachusetts, arm in arm,
marching into that vast assemblage, and
thus giving evidence that the two extremes
had come together again, and that, for the
future, they were united, &s they had been
in the past, for the preservation of the
When the despatch informed me that,
in that body of men, distinguished for m
tellect and wisdom, every eye was suf
fused with tears on beholding the scene,
I could not finish reading the despatch to
one associated with me in the office, for
my own feelings overcame me. Ap
plause. I think we may justly conclude
that wo arc moving under a proper inspi
ration, and that we need not be mistaken
that a finger of an overruling and uner
ring Providence is in this natter. The
nation is in peril. We have just passed
through a mighty, a bloody, a momentous
ordeal, and do not yet find ourselves free
from the difficulties and dangers thai at
first surrounded us.
"While our brave men have performed
their duty both officers and men (turn
ing to General Grant, who stood at his
right) while they have won laurels im
perishable, there are still greater and more
important duties to perform ; and while
we have had their co-operation in the field,
we now need their support in our efforts
to perpetuate peace. Applause. So
far as the Executive Department of the
Government is concerned, the effort has
been made to restore the Union, to heal
the breach, to pour oil into the wounds
which were consequent upon the struggle,
and, to speak in common phrase, to pre
pare, as the- learned and wise physician
would, a plaster healing in character and
co-extensive with the wound. Applause
We thought, and yet think, that we had
partially succeeded. Hut as the work
progressed, as reconciliation seemed to bo
taking place, and the country becoming
united, we found a disturbing and marring
element opposing us.
In alluding to that element I shall go
ntf' farther than did your convention and
the distinguished gentlemen who has de
livered to me the report of its proceedings.
I shall make no reference to it. That, I
do not believe the time and the occasion
justify. We have witnessed in one de
partment of the Government every effort,
as it were, to prevent the restoration of
peace and harmony in the Union. We
have seen hanging upon the vergo of Go
vernment, as it were, a body called, or
which assumes to be, the Congress of the
United States, but in lact a Congress of
only 'part of the States. We have seen
this Congress assume and pretend to be
for the Union, when its every step and act
tended to perpetuate dis.union and make a
disruption of the States inevitable.
Instead of promoting reconciliation and
harmony, its legislation ha3 partaken of
the character of penalties, retaliation and
revenge. This has been the course and
policy of one department of your Govern
ment. The humble individual who is now
addressing you stands the representative
of another department of the Government..
The manner in which he was called upon
to occupy that position I shall not allude
to or. this occasion ; suffice it to say that
he i: here under the Constitution of the
country, and being here by virtue of its
prov ion, he takes his stand upon that
charter of our liberties, as the great ram
nart'ii civil and religious liberty. Pro
longrd cherinir. Having been taught
in rr.y early life to hold it sacred, and
having practiced upon it during my whole
public career, I shall ever continue to rev
erence the. Constitution of my fathers
and iuuk it my guide. ' Hearty ap
plause. I l.rov it his been ?aid, and I must be
pei-iiiT"cd to 'indulge in the remark, that
the Executive Department of the Govern
ment has been despotic and tyrannical.
Let me ask this audience of distinguished
crentlecicn around me here to-day to point
to a vote I ever gave, to a speech I ever
made, to a single act of my whole public
life that has not been against tyranny and
despotism. What position have I ever
occupied, what ground have I ever assum
ed, where it can be truthfully chnnrcd J
ilint T f-iil.d in ndvoc.ate T . "..J: '
and elevation of the great tnrsss of my
countrymen? Cries of " Never !" and
great applause. So far a3 charges of
that kind arc concerned, I will say that
they are simply intended to deceive and
delude the public mind into the belief that
there is some one in power who is usurp
ing and trampling upon the rights and
perverting the principles of the Constitu
tion. It is done by those who make such
charges for the purpose of covering their
own'acts. Cries of That's so !" and
applause. I have felt it my duty, in
vindication of principle and the Constitu
tion of my country, to call attention to
these proceedings. When we come to
examine who has been playing the tyrant,
by whom do we find that despotism lia3
been exercised 1 As to myself, the ele
ments of my nature, the pursuits of my
life, have not made me, either in my feel
ings or in ray practice, aggressive. My
nature, on the contrary, is rather defen
sive in its character. Hut I will say that
having taken my stand upon the broad
principles of liberty and the Constitution,
there "is not power enough on earth to
drive me from it. Ioud and prolonged
applause. Having placed myself upon
that broad platform, I have not been awed,
dismayed or intimidated by cither threats
or encroachments, but have stood there in
conjunction with patriotic spirits, sound
in the tocsin of alarm when I deemed
the city in danger. Great applause. I
said on a previous occasion and repeat it
now, that all that was necessary in this
trnmt struggle against tyranny and despot
ism was. that the struggle Miould be suffi
ciently audible for the American people to
hear and understand. They did hear, and
looking on and seeing wlio tae contestants
were, and what that struggle was about,
they determined they would settle this
question on the side of the Constitution
and of principle. Cries of "That's so !"
and applause. I proclaim here to-da-,
as I have on other occasions, that my
faith is abiding in the great mass of the
people. In the darkest struggle, when
the clouds seemed to be most lowering,
my faith, instead of giving way, loomed
up through the dark cloud far beyond, and
I saw that all would be safe in the end.
My countrymen, wo all know that, in
the language' of Thomas Jefferson, ty
ranny and despotism even ran be exercised
and exerted more effectually by the many
than by the one. Wre have seen a Con
fess cradually encroach step by step upon
constitutional rights and violate day after
day and month after month the funda
mental principles of tho Government.
Cries of "That's so," and applause.
We have seen a Congress that seemed to
forget that there was a Constitution of the
Unijed States that there was a limit to
the sphere and scope of legislation. We
have seen a Congress in a minority assume
to exercise powers which, if allowed to be
carried out, would result in despotism or
monarchy itself. Enthusiastic applause.
This is truth, and because others as well
as myself have seen proper to appeal to
the patriotism and republican -feeling of
the country, we have been denounced in
the severest terms. Slander ujion slander,
vituperation upon vituperation, of the
most villainous character, has made its
way through the press. What, gentlemen,
has been your and my sin 1 What has
been the cause of our offending? I will
tell you. Daring to stand by the Consti
tution of our fathers! Approaching
Senator Johnson. I consider the pro
ceedings of this convention, sir, as more
important than those of any convention
which ever assembled in the United States.
Great applause. When. I look with my
mind's eye upon that collection of citizens
coming together voluntarily, and sitting in
council, with ideas, with principles, and
views commensurate with all the States,
and co-cxtensive with the whole people,
and contrast it with the collection of gen
tlemen who arc trying to destroy the
country. I regard it as more important
than any convention that has sat, at least,
since 17S7. llencwed applause. I
think I may also saj', that the declara
tions that were there made arc equal with
the Declaration of Independence itself,
and I here to-day pronounce it a second
Declaration of Independence. (Cries of
" Glorious," and most enthusiastic and
prolonged applause.)
Your address and declarations are noth
ing more nor less than a reaffirmation of
tho Constitution of the United States.
Cries of " Good," and applause. Yes,
I will go farther, and say that the decla
rations you have made, that the principles
you have enunciated in your address, are
a second proclamation of emancipation to
the people of the United States renewed
applause ; for in proclaiming and repro
claiming these great truths you have laid
down a constitutional platform upon wh;cl
all can make common cause, and stand
united together fLr the restoration of the
States and preservation of the Govern
ment without reference to party. The
query only is the salvation of the country,
tor our country rises above all party con
siderations or influences. Cries ol
"Good," and applause. How many
arc there in the United States that now
require to be free ? They have the shack
les upon their limbs and are bound as
rigidly as though they were in fact in
slavery. I repeat, then, that your decla
ration is the second proclamation of
emancipation to the people of tho United
States, and oilers a common grounu upon
which all patriots can stand. Applause.
Mr. Chairman and gentlemen, let me
in this connection ask you what I have
to gain more than the advancement of the
public welfare? Iam as much opposed
to the indulgence of egotism as any cne,
but here in a conversational manner,
while formally receiving the proceedings of
tin convention, I may be permitted again to
ask, what have I to gain consulting hu
man ambition more than I have gained,
except in one thing ? My race is nearly
run. 1 have been placed in the high
office I occupy under the Constitution of
the country," and I may say that I have
held, from the lowest to the highest, al
most every position to which a man may
jittain in our Government. I have passed
through every position, from Alderman of
a village to the Presidency of the United
States" and surely, gentlemen, this should
be enough to gratify a reasonable ambi
tion. If I wanted authorit', or if I
wished to perpetuate my own power, how
easy it would have been to hold and
wield that which was placed in my hands
bv the measure called Freedman's IJu
reau bill. (Laughter and applause.) with
an army which it placed at my discre
tion I could have remained at the Capital
of the nation, and with fifty or sixty mil
liens of appropriations at my disposal,
with the machinery to be worked by my
own hands, with my satraps and depend
ents in every town and village, and then
with the civil rights bill following as an
auxiliary (laughter) in connection with
all other appliances of the Government, I
could have proclaimed myseit uiciaior.
("That's true," and applause.)
But, Gentlemen, my pride and my am
bition have been to occupy that position
which retains all power in the hands of
, . i v T .
! -- x ,. ,
that I have always relied,
that I relv now. (A voice,

VOL.. 13 NO. 28
repeat, that neither the taunts nor jeers of
Congress nor of a subsidized calumniating
press can drive me from my purpose.
(Great applause.) I acknowledge no
superior except my God, the author of
my existence, and ihe people of-the Uni
ted States. (Prolonged and enthusiastic
cheering.) F'or the one, I try to cbcy all
his commands, as best I can, compatible
with my poor humanity. For the other,
in a political and representative sense,
the high behests of the people have always
been respected and obeyed by me. (Ap
plause )
Mr. Chairman, I have said more than I
had intended to say. For the kind allu
frions to myself contained in your address,
and in the resolutions adopted by the con
vention, let me remark that in this crisis,
and at this period of my public life, I
hold above all price, and shall ever recur
with feelings of profound gratification to
the last resolution, containing the endorse
ment of a convention emanating spor;
ncously from the great mass of the poo
pie. I trust and hope that my future
action may be such that you and the con
vention you represent may not regret the
assurance of confidence you have express
ed. (" We are sure of it.")
Before separating, -my friend?, one and
all, committee and strangers, please ac
eept my sincere thanks for the kind mani
festations, of regard and respect you have
exhibited on this occasion. I repeat that
I shall always continue to be guided by a
conscientious conviction of duty, and that
always gives me courage, under the Con
stitution, which I have made my guide.
At the conclusion of the President's re
marks, three enthusiastic cheers wera
given for Andrew Johnson and three more
for General Grant. The President and
General Grant then retired arm in arm,
and were immediately followed by tho
committee and audience.
An A?;e cf Shams.
We have not a shadow or doubt that
this is a fast age and a great country, and
that we Americans arc an immense peo
ple. In conversation with a practical
chemist, the other day, we were to'd that
during two years he hod made over two
hundred inspections of vaiious kinds of
liquors, and Lai found nine-tenths of them
mere imitations, and a great portion poi
sonous concoctions. Of brandy, lie docs
not believe there is in larpe cities one gal
lon of pure spirits in ft hundred gallons.
Malaga, etc., is made of water, sulphuric:
acid, cct., and many liquors are without
a single drop of alcoholic spirit. As a
general thing whiskey contains only from
seventeen to twenty per cent of alcoholic
spirit, when it should have from forty-five
to fifty ; and some of it contains sulphu
ric acid enough in a quart to eat a hole
clear through a man's stomach ! It was
Byron, we believe, who said
" The tree of know ledge is not that of life :
They who know tLe most must mourn tLo
O'er the fatal tiuth."
Byron might have meant a great deal
more than we know of, but it he had
lived until now he might, and no doult
would, have made the expression a little
stronger if he could. There is no deny
ing that we are living in an age of tliam?,
and that humbi'g and ch a?ery have be
come polite arts. There is positively
nothing that is really what it appears to
be upon its face. Wc have bogus reli
gion, bogus politicians, bogus patriots,
bogus lawyers, bogus authors, and doc
tors everything sham, from mock auc
tioneers to sensation preachers and politi
cal acrobats. The ladies, in all the
splendor of silks, cotton, whahbone, "lil
ters," "dumpers," "waterfalls'' and
paint, are confounded no such things !
The doctor who has been himself called
out of two or three different churches on
the same day, or the lawyer who rushes
to and fro with an immense green bag
htuffed with old newspapers, are only per
sonified expressions of adulteration all
lies and deception ! Prussic acid whis
key, logwood claret, wax Luttons, paper
collars and chalk milk are all practical
bouncers. As Black Hawk said, when
upon seizing a soldier, with intent to scalp
him, hii wig came off, " it was a big
lie !" Just so in this age of progress
everything is whopper I We have gone
on improving things until at last we have
no more idea what we ent and drink than
if wc lived in a Chinese restaurant.
Even horses look reproachfully at bolog
na dealers, and in the sausage season wo
are positively ashamed to look a dug' in
the face I
The hop crop of the State of New
York will be better this season than it !;
been for many previous years.
