Ono of the things which made, Mr.
Johnson Vice- President; and by the death
of Mr. Lincoln President of the United
Stafea was his celebrated saying,, 4.TreasOii
Inuit be made odious,andttrai tors punished."
The Union Loving people of this country
saw, safety in that speech. They' adhered,
to man; to that . programme. The felt—
and feel—that if' the leading traitors are
tin:night to punish menti for i their monstrous
crime, and if treason is made odious, the
country is safe, for we May hope to gain'ail
else by argunient,. and by the help ()Nate.
Somehow -traitors` hare not yet been
punished: Many of *lie Vilest and most
pernicious have been pardoned; and the
ckief ef all still lies in prison. Nevertheless,
treason is daily - becoming more odious;
there isrno doubt about it. It was more
()thous do the day after the Memphis, riots
than it was before; it was more odion When
the colored• Unionists of Georgia were driv
en away frOm the Union soldiers' graves
they wished to decorate, .than before. it
became still more odious - yesterday morning
as peoPle read the account of the New
0-leans riot; and the New. York Daily
the RichmondlEalair, er, and half
a dozen. journals conducted in a similar
spirit. make it more and more odious from
day to day. ,
Not only is the sph it of treason becoming
edi:ous by the lawless and defiant conise of
the men who lately 41 . c engaged in an at
tempt :to overthrow the
,IGovernment and
Union—and who have been so . freely for
given for their crime; traitors as well as
treason-are becoiningOdious.. The process
by which -this is brought about is not pre
cisely that which wits in people's minds
when they applauded Mr. Johnson for his
famous phrase: But it is just as effectual
—it may turn put to be more so.
Fur, the condemnation which the south
- can leaders are bringing upon themselves
is msre severe,and will bring with it severer
penalties, than any the courts would hate
-decreed.. The Union loving people are
quietly' watching these man; they see theta
everywhere the abettors of violence, of un
righteousness, stirring up sedition, the in
dustrious sowers of hatred uncharitableness
turbulent, lawless,/ defiant. They draw
their own conclusions from all that has
passed in the last Year in the South; and
those conclusions are not favorable to the
continued rule of the class which boastfully
pretends that it alone can and ought to
rule in the Southern State,s.
I# thereis any Irma of influence and of
'common sense in those States, he would do'
vrell to warn thorn who were lately en
gaged/ in rebellion,l that they will be. wise
to act somewhat more cautiously and pro
dent 4 than they are doing. They ought
to,uuderstand that .though. the twenty
millions who fOught'for the Union are
patient, and long sutfering, they are not
fools. They would do well. to remember
that by -about twenty-four millions of 'our
populatioo treason and rebellion are re-,
graded as crimes deserving of the' heaviest
punishment; and that every- act,
every reckless defiance, every boastful as-1
sumption on the part d i f men Who were
rebels and traitors, only strengthens the
sentiment,a which is growing rapidly in the
Northern States,that conciliation of traitors
is a huge blunder, free pardon a deadly
wistake,and severity and the strict enforee
ment of the laws against treason and 're
.bellion the only wholesome or safe course.
It should be remembered that it is not
yet too / late to revise and reverse all that
has been donein the way of reconstruction.
Already' the very name of pardon -has ba
con:tie hateful to the Union loving people,
and every rebel pardoned excites new alarm
au .l dissatisfaction. Already people begin
.to7feel,---and to say, that rebel leaders ought
not to be pardoned, that the chief movers
in ecel state ought to be treated as the
crimina.s they are, or atleast as aliens,and,
if they are permitted to stay io the country
at all, should have this permission only on
condition that they, refrain from all part in
politics, either by speaking, writing, voting
or hOlding office.
Public sentiment is more set now, upen
confining office to original Unionist, than
it wits six ar three months ago; the peop!le
more universally 'demand the execution bf
the . laws against treason - now than thy
la7e ever donei since -Lee's surrender.
Congress had •blioSen to adopt a Constitu
tional Amendment guarantyi ng,in the name
of the nation, not only equal rights hut
equal suffrage, lit would need only andther
New Orleans riot to gain the vote of every
northern State for such arrieasure.
The - lawless 'Class in the Southern States
seem 1,9 be engaged in a deliberate attempt
to mate free government impossible there;
let them not go too far; let thern.remetn
ber that the patience of those who supported
the Union when they were in arms to de
stroy it, h a limit, andthat there is only
one thing sure—whatever may happen to
repels and traitors, whatever.inconvenienee .
they have to be put to,er - whatever severity
of 'punishment May be required to hold
them in awe, the American people are 40,-

seem to have reached this interesting and
.1 :,ys 0
i structive stage. The Times s acs
• What the Daily Naas understands by Con
ervativism, is now manifest. The COnservative
arty, as interpreted by our contetnPorary, sig
ities an alliance of tho.Norlhern ..VOPperhcads"
with. the Southern , ,lemb , rs of the rebelli r hn. ,Itis a
party made up lof VALLANDIGDAT. and JACOB
Plomrsox, Yeatti,xuo WOOD and 1-lowEliL COBB,
and all who, like them, , •participatel heart and
hand in the rebellion," on one hand, or exerted
themselves to cripple and thwart the National
Government on 1 tke other. ObserVe, he plea
is not for the Moderate men of t'e 'oulh—
those who aim* necessarily took part in the
rebellion, but either did not fight fOr t, air fought
under compulsiOn ; but for the rob I Faders
the men who „ot)eilly promoted ie ennui, and
were its active spirits throughout the (conflict.
These are they! for whom the DaVy brews de
mands admission, and on whom it relieS,in con
junction with the '.Copperheads,'l to' control
the deliberations, and lay the•foundatioms of a
National party. TO those who have watched
the tactics and the reasoning of the News and
the World, the avowal will hardly' be surpris
ing. If the oCopPerheadsl'. are to be recog
i nized at Philadelphia as loyal Unionists, it fol
-1 lows as a logical result thatithe members of Jrs-
BERSON DAVlS'Cabinet, and the commanders of hie
armies, and the managers of his plots, and the keep
ers of his prisons, are also entitled to be placed in
the same category because -they luippen. now to call
Vtemselves Union milt. :
, ! ,
This is certaiuly true, but the Times ' un
like nearly every other j4oUrnal . with Re
publican antecedents, refd4es to abandon
participatiOn in an assemblage, whose ten
dencies it accurately describes on, the pre
tence that it can control or Change its com
position, and that the inotititain will come
to Maliomet instead-of Mahomet going to
the mountain.
The Ncios, on the other hand, defines
the position Of the Times,' as follows:
The Pima still insists that i no Southern dele
gate shall be admitted to thelConvention except
”those who may not have borne arms against
the National Government," !or, who having.
done this, shall have been pardoned by the
'President ; and that no Northern delegate shall
be admitted unless he shall satisfy the conven
tion that he supported Mr. Lincoln's adminis
tration. The object which the Times seeks to
I accomplish by attempting to make these tests .
is plain enough—the dwarfing of the movement to
1 inch contemptible Propoilions that it shall be Under
the control of the Seward and !Raymond section of
the radicalparty, to the end that this faction (for
it hardly deserved any better name) may get
together, from the war Denioerats and South.
eru renegades, a Sufficient fallowing 'to enable
its leaders to make a respectable fight for the
control of the next National Convention of'the
radical party, thachairman of whose oxecutivo
committee is Mr. Henry J. Raymond..
It is obvious enough that it these gentlemen
shall succeed in enforcing the f application of
these strange tests, that the, convention will not
represent any 'respectable constititen, in any
Southern Stale, nor any considerable ';constituency
in any Northern State; and that the Movement
which the convention was intended to inaugur
ate will not r e sult, nor do we suppoSe that Mm.
• Raymond desires that .it shall, in the:accom
plishment of the professed object of the call—
the restoration to the Southern States of their
rights Linder the Federi.l Constitution, among .
which rights is that ,of being represented in
Congress by Senators and Representatives who
possess the qualificallops prescribed by the
Constitution of the United States."
From this controire sy it is evident that
an insincere attempt delude members of
the Union party is 1, ade by the Timps •
or that, were its tests applied,the Democ
racy would be subjec ed to the insult of
having their • represea tive 'men excluded
from a body endorsed by thir representa
tives in Congress. 'I ','the Position ofd the
News is fully sustained, the language of
the Times' accuratelkdefine the composi
tion of the convention; but the latter jour
nal occupies the contemptible position of
seeking' the cO-operation and aid of 'meri
whose companionship it is ashamed : and
afraid to acknowledge; and, as the New
York Triouae L :ivell remarks: "The fatal
obstacle that, bars the way to power before
the formidable coalition of ex-Rebels, Cop
perheads, and Johnsort-Unionists, is the
palpable and natural indisposition of the
two former classes to keep iout of public ,
sight and simply vote the latter into office."
At this stage of ,theplay, the Hews trots
out, counseling its fellow rebels as follows:
We say, therefore, that the first thing for the
South to do is to secure a foothold in Congress.
They must get into the arena &fore 110. y caner
peet to strike effectively for their cause. Let their
march in, with flying colors; by virtue of their
rights, if potsible.* If. not, let them' crawl in,

in what way they can, so that the next SCSSIO11;of
Congress hods them there..
What the Mtn means by itrikiag eft_
tively for !theie cause" is not distinctly
stated heie; brit'Avery loyal . man knowe
full well .what it typified during the last
five years.
The strictness with which the South crit 7
icized its delegatei can he witnessed in the
.11thuliosn, July 25, 166 G.
1 A meeting of people of Hanover county,
•was held at the court-house yesterday (court
day), to appoint delegates to the district con
vention to select representatives of this -con
gresaiond district in the Philadelphia conven
tion. The four men who had been the most
active and prominent seesionis:s in the coun
try were sdected. A motion AV as Made to add'
General Wickham to the delegation, General
W. had been tv member of the convention that
passed the ordinance of secession and - strongly
opposed it. lie sutsecitiondy .served in the
Confederate army, but since the termination of
the war, has IMen active and ardent for restora
tion. The motion was opposed on the ground
that General Wickham ..had. written a letter
denouncing secession" and he was *tad.
When Gott. Dennison - saw that the ma
chinery of the government was to be pros
tituted to the vindication and restoration
of treason, !he withdrew . from Johnson's
Cabinet, and raised the curtain before the
eyes of thousands who, without such testi,
molly, would have remained incredulous.
Since his resignation, that which he saw
inside of the'Administration is constantly
showing. itself to the outside world, until
at last the Republicans who aro taking part
in the mongrel convention are a very small
percentage Of the copperhead and traitor
aggregate. The fact above stated is true
of every southern community from which
delegates to the grand roost of the carrion
birds of the : rebellion have been selected.
Nothing elsEi could have been expected
from Richaiond. There is not a day that
we do not hear of the iniplacable feeling in
the former capital of the crushed Confed
eracy against the people of the loyal States.
Officers of the national government station
ed there in the discharge of their duties
testify not only to this feeling, but to the
offensive , way in which it is exhibited.
Every door iis closed upon a patriotic citi
zen, especially if ho wears the glorious uni
forai of the Republic. The very children
are taught to lisp maledictions against the
"Yankees," and school books are being pre
pared and printed in which the glories cf
the rebellion are exalted and the cronesand
tyrannies of tlie National Government made
clear to the:rising rebel generation.
4ut here comes the father of lies with a
song that will tickle the fancy of a rebel
bully, and at the same dine not , frighten
any one very seriously :
„ The Hon; Montgomery Blair was the next
speaker. He said the only issue was whether
the country ;would continue to remain in a state
of disunion in order that a political party may
retain power;- or whether the old Linton, as es
tablished by our fathers, should be restored. It
had : beeri his misfortune to differ with the
Democratic party; but it was composed 'of hon
est men' T hom he always, honored. They bud
presented the spectacle of furnishing 'Men and
means to defend the Government at the same
time that that Government was in the hands of
their political adversaries, thus proving,to some
extent,tW intense feeling of devotion to country
which ever characterizes them; this too, when
as the speaker knew (he beings member of the
Government) that Government wg' wielded in
a most miserupulous and unjustifiable manner.
The speaker predicted that should the radicals
carry theelections ifs October, the resultwould
be the , establishment of two Presidents and two
Congressei, for the Radical sectional majority
would then immediately impeach President
Johnsontird turn him out, while on the other
hand th .p emocratic members of Congress
would unite with the regularly elected members
from thel South. He also warned his hearers
that they 'sere on theeve of another civil war,
the battle -fields of which would be in the north
while the south would remain united. He dis
claimed kpeaking for any sensational purpor;
but earnestly warned the people of the North
'against thelevil effects of tampering with the
fundamental law of the land.”
, There 'rims but one thing lacking in Mr.
litontgomery Blair's Speech, he should have
given his reasons for always endeavoring to
he on the side of those who have the dis
position.of put lie plunder, — after which he
'might have told the story of the encountre
between Mrs. Jessie Fremont and the elder
'Blair. ,'
"And ire shall feed like oxen at a stall,
'rlie bett!er cherished still the nearer death."
—We have made these quotations to
show the 'spirit of the men who seek to re
new the contest of four years ago, unless
they can rule. Memphis, Now Orleans,
and Georgia, testify the character of their
A elTlON'.—The paper started by E. 8. Lowe, ex
. Governor Packer, and others of the Copperhead fra
nity, asking L. A. Mackey to become a candidate
for Congress, is designed to have Mr. Mackey run
AGAINST the regular Republican Candidate. • Mr.
Mackey haa o WO think, too much sense to be caught
is that trap, and no Republican should aid their cue
mice by signing such a document as that now -In cir
culation by the Copperheads in this city and else
where.—('rest Branch Bulletin.
This manifold movement has been on foot
quite long, enough, We have verbally cau
tioned thq few republican friends of Mackey in
this place' ? connected with it, against giving anY
countenance to the ell'ort to distract our party
by the introduction of his uatne,at this time,into
our canvass for Congressman. Some of them,
we have reason to believe, have liken our ad
vise, and are no longer identified with the
movement. Others, not more than a half dozen
in numbe'r, whose motives are clearly Under
stood, with a degree of folly which nothing but
an irwane greed of office can account for, are
still pressing it. If their efforts were open and
honerable we should have nothing'. to say; but
they hard seen proper to proseciite their work
outside ()tthe town with secrecy.and,it mustbe
with lying and deceitful speech. Under such
circumstances we cannot remain silent without
doing violence to our sense of duty to our party
and the sacred cause which it has in keeping.
For'obvious reasons the movement was not
begun in -Clinton county./ Prominent Republi
cans,whoWere supposed to entertain unfriendly
sentiment towards Mr. Wilson personally for
his course in the distribution of the Federal
patronage in Centre/and I'otter counties, were
applied to hid in securing the Republican nom
ination fur Mr. Maekey in these counties. It
was believed that by representing him as a
sound and reliable Republican there would be
no diffictilty in' obtaining for him the endorse
meat of the two counties named, and no doubt
1 seemedto be entertained that hisindividual pop-.
ularity and influence in this county,would over
bear any prudential or patriotic chnsidemtions
that might exist to oppoie his nomination by
our Convention. • .1
The announcement of the intontion of Mr.
Mackey to become a candidate for the Repub
lican nomination was first made in -the Central
Preis of Bellefonte. A little investigation soon
convinced us that this-though osteuSibly a
movement bf Republicans-o , ms simply an in
genious snare laid by our opponents to divide
and: if possible, defeat our partyat the coining
tdectiou fur Congressman. • ,
, It was.believed by . these intriguers that Ti
na 'woulfi yield to no compromise, but would
haslet upon the renomination of Mr.•Wilsonan.d
would support no one elan at the, polls; and it'
Mr.; Mackey could only get the conferees of
the three counties mentioned he would
Mated on the first ballot, and thus a split in the
Republican party would be Occasioned: that
could not be healed, and-which would defeat
both Mr. Wilson and Mr. Mackey, and return a
CoPperhead to Congreize. ' This was the design
of the Copperheads who projected the move
menttliough We do not charge the Republicans
engaged in itwith any complicity or sympathy
with this, its designed ultimate effect,. They-,
perhaps good,easy mien s thought they were act
ing in perfect good faith with their party, and
were only going to:obtam a republican victory
where they believed none could be otherwise
obtained. Whatever might be the precise re
sult of the effort to give Mr.-Mackey the Re-
publican nomination, the effect, it was thought
would be to, divide our party and relies c Mr.
Wilson, or Whonisoever the choice of that party
might be of the, requisite number of votes to
elect the Copperheedcandiclate.
As for the action presupposed of Tioga county
by , these Copperhead manoeuvres, we think
there was not the least ground for the assump
tion. That county, like all others in the dis
trict, will stand by the nominee of the party
when fairly presented. •
The Republicans of the district are iu earnest
in their political faith. and they will yield to no
schemes, of selfish politicians to divert them
from thd support of such measures as they be
lieve to be righter of such men as they . know
to stand squarely, and avowedly on their plat-,
form of principleail
For the information of our . friends in the
country, we would say that this effort to bring
out a man in opposition to Mr. Wilson, is not
approved by a single prominent undisguised
friend of the Congressional policy in this" born'

DEAR ;JOURNAL : The loyal SOILS of. Pennsyl
vania in this section' Of the State, held a grand
Mass convention at york, on the 9th inst. It
Was a decided success in favor of Gen. Geary;
and did honor to the loyal people of the great
commonwealth. There were at least twenty
thousand true soldiers on the grounds, soldiers
Who have fought and suffered for our country;
soldiers whose scars tell of their undying hero
iim for the protection of. the Republic ; soldiers
Who have stoOd undismayed at the shock and
carnage of battle. Such were the men who ral
lied from the hillside, arid from the valley, in
the old Keystone State, and assembled in irork
On Thursday, and spoke in tones which will re
ceive the sanction of every true soldier.
The number of tickets sold in this place alone
amounted to over one thousand, and the train
from here was the largest passenger train that
ever passed over the Susquehanna bridge, it
numbered twenty ilve passenger cars. His
Excellency, Gov.Curtin accompaoicd the party,
as did Gen. T. W. Geary, who got on the train
at New Cumberland. The table at York,which
Was spread in the grove, was' half a Mile long,
ii.ncl was covered with forty Wagon loads of pro
'Vision, and all had a free dinner thus showing
the sentiment of York countY,which the "cops"
of this place say can never be redeemed, but is
true. to Hiester Clymer. But the soldiers who
have been Clytner's friends are fast leaving him.
Ilis history in the Senate of h ihe State, tells too
"strongly against him. lii April, 1561,he voted*
'against putting Pennsylvania on a war footing.
He voted against increasing l.he pay of soldiers,
and also against the right ofisailors andaeamen
to vote He voted against tine bill to regulate
the elections held by soldiers in the field,in c r
der to disfranchise them. Still he snid in Lis
;18th of July,speedh at Reading.that/hiS history
ris the history of the State, ! and •tliat he would
not alter it if he could.
,Such being his record,
land such his principles, now, he cannot dupe
the soldies who fought to pit 6wn Rebellion.
The watchfires burn brigl tly over every
portion of the old Keystone, and nothing but a
miracle can turn the election against Gen. Gear y.
The Rival people of the/Commonwealth aro
massed 7 in one grand phalarix, and bear their
banner aloft with the inscription, ' , Geary and
Victory "
But while Pennsylnia rests in comparative
security, we must not forget the brave Union
men of the South, Who are, and have been be
trayed by a modern "Moses"—or I should have
said a modern Judas. The Republican party
has been betrayd—grossly,dastardly, betrayed.:
As soon as An rew Johnson began to slaughter
his solemn pl dges,by a preorganized and /pre
concerted pl n, the slaughter of Union men in
in the South begun. The city of New Oilcans
is reeking,.Witla the blood of tjnion men,) mur
dered by/Rebels, instigated by Andrew John
son, His course is condemned by every loyal
paper and , loyal man in the land. He insolently
overrnieci.the authority o£ Gov. Wells, and con
ferred with subordinate State officers who are
in sympathy with the traitors. Stich a course
looks black and heinous. Is not such actions
on' the part of Andrew Johnson,engendered by
lie same spirit that plotted the Rebellion ? Is
/he not in secret conclave with the traitors of
this government? The Issue is upon us. The
death gurgle of more than thirty Union men is
borne on the breeze from N ew Orleans, speak
ing in terrible tones of .the deep damnation of
their taking off.", The scenes of a martyred
President looms up to our vision, and all cry
in this calamity of our nation's betrayal, GOD
AO - Horace Mayn i ard, Gov. Brownlow,
and Hon. S. M. Arne% Congressman elect
were present at . a Union celebration on the
4th in Nashville. Mr. Maynard declared
that the terms of!Congress showed a mag
nanimity unparrelleled in the history of
the World. Mr.4rnell supposed a case of
the "reconstructed horse-thief," and said
Go to your jails and penitentiaries,bring
out your horse-thiefs, and say, "Hold up
your hands; you do solemnly swear that
henceforth and forever you ' will steal no
more horses— so, help you God." Go re
constructed horsq. thief! This is a parallel
case. Hair splitting logician,constitutional
quibblers, are not mnrder and arson higher
crimes than horse-stealing?, Hold up your
hand; you do solemnly swear. that you will,
murder no more citizens' of the United
States, starve no more of her soldiers in
Andersonville pens, and that you will be an
Abolitionist for the balance of your ' days
help you God! Go, reconstructed
traitor. NoW, if the highest of crimes can
be so sworn !away, so that 4, never hap-,.
pened,' why not try that same doctrine
horse,thiels? If you are going to be con=
dilatory, why not pardon the little fellows? said that we are thirsting for revenge.
No, revenge is a great mistake.- There is.,
no one person ou this earth to ';whom '
bear malice. But Ido not wish my chi),
dren fifty years hence to be''fighting over
again this . Rebellion. The position that
wise statesmen ought to maintain is to hold
the; Rebel element, hopelessly poWerks?
until it is "clothed in the right mind. 7
I can well understand ; how a poor I:rah:lh
ist - would Soliloquize to bin - mall, "Olt Presi
dent Johnson!, you penned the'sentiment
On our banners that "treason oughtltd be
made odious"—what treason inean
We poor. Unionists stood by you when the
proud dames of Nashville crossed th4'street
and avoided meeting you, as if yon ; were
struck with the leprosy—When even the
children sneered as you passed, becatise you
were a Union man4—we thought you l meant
treason to the. United States. Under yOur
leadership we were summoned to this fight
—did you let us in the for front to be
crushed? Well, we owe it to God and our
selves that we have: found out one 'thing,
that this Government is in the hands of no
one man, or half a dozen men. It fount
dations are in the heart of a great people.
rYSenator Trumbull, the 'author of the
civil rights and freedmen's bureau bills,in
late speech at. Chicago' gave the following_
account of the course pursued by 'Oe
President in refereLee to them:
Both these bills' as you are aware, were
met by au. Executive veto. Bills drawn
tip in harmony with the mes,sage delivered
to us at the commancrrnent of the gessiori;
bills submitted and read to the President
in manuscript before they were printed.;
Ibills ,sent to him aft i 4. they were prtnted
land against the provisions of whidi he
never lisped a wordluntil after they were
enacted by both Lloitses of Congres; both
these bills, then, met with 'a veto, not by',
' reason of any particular feature in thero,but
a veto against the Iwhole principleS :.f . the
bills. We then fou I d that the President
of the United Stakewas ; as' false to the'
pledges of his anal message, when he
said that equal and exact Justice should be
meeted out to al mien, as he had Proved
recreant to the pledL , :es he made When he
took the oath of 'l ) reSi•lent, that rebels.
should be impoverished and take back seats

/10 - Vallandigham, in a speech at Lex
ington, Kentucky, a short time since, when
advocating the claims of a rebeL eaididate
for office,said he never had for an hem. be
lieved that the war would restore the Union,
and he found the:same issues. presented as
in 1861. He , said also that the !contest.
was the same in Kentucky as in Obio.—
Put this and that tegether, and` follows,
according to Vali, that the Ohio Democracy

as was done at Chicago, that the war was
a failure, and Unit "the issues o(1861"

are yet undecided. Vallandighani will, of

maligning Gen. Chant. Pendleton affects
to believe that Grant, instead of being a
a soldier, is a mere butcher—a brute. whO
depends on the force of nnmbers 4nd not
on military genius or strategy for hiS vic

tar Howell Cobb,BUchanan's Secretary
of title Treasury, has taken the stump in
Georgia, in advocacy of Johnson's Recon
struction policy. He took the funds of the
Natiimal Government, while be was Secre
tary of the Treasury, to aid rebellion, and
hence it is logical that he should take the
stump in defense of Johnson. Besides this,
there are rebels in the South Whottow take
the lives of Union men in aid of the Pres
ident. The fact is, the Johnsouian move
ment is "taking"—taking the Government
to the rebels with lightning speed.

rebels_ in the attack on the Union men at
New Orleans, is to be a delegate to the
