On the 21st, the House had the sub
iect of Reconstruction up for argument.
'lJr. Thomas, of Maryland, held that
Congress hadlull control of the whole
matter. He stated that the late rebels
were still determined to destroy the Go

should not be admitted to a representa

said that every rebel, froth Jeff. Davis
to every guerilla, .was .in favor of the
Presidents policy of reconstruction.

In the House, the rules were suspend

The battle is not yet over.' The men
who fought down the rebelltott and re
ceived the submission of the armed
hosts, thereof, are about to be subjected,
to another test, notso terrible, notso
exacting and exhausting, but still re
quirit2g an undeviating love and devo
tion to the principles upon which , our
liberties are ,founded, to pass through
We regard the evidence of the disaf
fection of the President as cumulative;
such as to weaken the faith of consid-
erate men in his fidelity to the princi
ples to which he pledged allegiance
when he accepted the nomination of
Vice presicient at the hands of the Un
ion party.
To us thenew test has no terrors. We
fear no axe wielded by the dispensers of
place in this republic. Were we the re
cipient and holder of such patronage,
it would be as one obliging a superior,
and not as one obliged by him. Trained
to labor, not for the love of work, but
from necessity, we have; and have ever
had, More 'respect for a plow, or' other
implement of honest work, than for
that patronage which has come to be,
wrongfully, the appliance of power.
Our leaders tcil at„, once_ guess what
the nature of this new test is to be. It
is affirmed, with a pertinacity that sa
vors of truth, that the President is about
to use the patronage in his right to dis
pense, to defeat the Republican party in
the coming elections. This,. of course,
involves the rewarding of Copperheads
and the punishment of true and stead
fast Union men.
It is difficultto believe this, but it is
well to be prepared.
Admit it to be true. What follows?
Simply this: The emissaries of 'the
President go out, from Washington in
search of men heretofore somewhat
.fdentitied with the ,IRepublican party,
who can be purchased with some small
office. -
The number of men-who can be bought
and sold by demagogues—among those
who stood firm throughout the late war
—is small. But here are men who can
be purchased ; whose prices are graded
all the way from a glass of beer up to
an office worth $2,00 per annum.
To this class the President will send
his agents, if rumors be true. To this
class office was dispensed by Franklin
Pierce and James Buchanan. Yet, with
all this numerous class bought tip and
in working order, and at work for Bu
chanan and his cb-rebels, ABRAHAM
LINCOLN Was triumphantly elected Pres
ident in 1860. •
r For this reason we apprehend that the
day when . the ballot-box can be:con-,
trolled jiy political pimps, is passed
away ; and that, were the President to
remove every true-blue Republican from
office to-day, and give their plaCes to
men who either gave the Government
a doubtful support during its great trial
by battle, or openly opposed it, he could
not defeat the Republican party in the
next fall elections.
The loss of place is one of the lightest
of evils to the individual. The use of
patronage - as a bribe to the weak and
conscienceless, has been, and always
must be, a stupendous abuse, a nameless
degradation to the people, - and a wanton
insult to manhood.
Think of it: Has it come to this,
that a President values the loyal thou
sands who placed him where he suc
ceeded to-the office he holds, asinarket
able commodities? Does he expect to.
purchase respect and support denied by_
conscience and right thinking ?
Look at it in tbislight: Peter Pimp,
duly k4iuthorized by the President of the
United States, as an agent to purchase
a certain quantity of popular respect for
his - employer, (said employer having
neglected to fulfil his solemn promises
to the people who"gave him the right of
way to his present position, and 5)3
their confidence), canvasses Tioga coun

We close, the report here, because it is
not probable that, upon our mountains,
there could be found any renegade of
sufficient merit to be worth a more ex
alted position than a third class place
under a chief of a Bureau or Depart
ment. Nor are we certain that one can
be found, who could not be as well pur
chased with a promise of preferment six
months after the overthrow of the Gov
ernment by the late-born eulogists of
the President/0 policy of reconstruction.
Does any man ask - what the rebels and
their Copperhead allies expect to accom
plish by this attempt at wholesale bri
bery? - - - _ _
This : The defeat of Gen. Getiry, and
of some half-dozen Union members of
Congress in the State of Pennsylvania.
The issue is plain. Every man who
goes to the polls next October must vote,
either to sustain the President's policy
of reconstruction, or Congress.
But the President's policy of recon
struction, according to Ebe evidence of
Gov. Brownlow, of Tennessee, Joshua
Hill, of Georgia, Gen. Schurz, Horace
Maynard and Col. Stokes, the last two
from Tennessee and members elect, to
CongrAs, is a complete failure. NO man
-of -candor can vote to sustain a "dead
duck" of a policy. •
No. The people who have fought
down the rebellion in the field, can do ,
but one thing and be consisteni:—That
is—rally to the support of Congress--
And they will do it. '
Aud the right way to sustain COn
gress, is to return every man w.h6 tins
stood 'firmly in the great trial of the
present session. These men have stood
by the country, and the country must
stand by theni.
What . the bedraggled fly is to-the but
ter of the hungry man, or thestray hair
to smoking muffin, are the caprices and
eccentricities of President Johnson to
his late-born friends and eulogists, the
rebelsand their Northern allies. When
he issued•his proclamation of peace, the
orators and editors of that faction vied
with each other to see whoshould.shout
loudest in his praise. To usean expres.
sive, bnt not exactly classical Ph - rase,
"all - was lovely," the way
. up' to power.
regained, and the treasury revisited.
They likewise rejoiced that,martial law
was no more, that the Union troops
would be at once withdrawn from the
rebel States, and that the 'privilege' of
the writ of habeas corpus would be at
once restored.
Alas, for the vanity of human wishes
and calculations! Days, and even
w4s, passed by, and. still the hated
"boys,in blue" were kept ih the rebell
ious South. What did it mean? they
asked. At last, in reply to one of the
Generals commanding in the Depart
ment of the South, the ,PreSident issues
an order to the effect that the troops are
not to be withdrawn from the south at
present, and that martial law rules in
all those places where the civil authori
ties are still as bitterly opposed to the
Government as ever.
The abrupt subsidence of Copperhead
orators and press* from great rejoicing
to bitter lamehtation, is remarkably af
fecting. "Hope, deferred, maketh the
heart sick," is written somewhere. If
appearances do not deceiVe, this failure
of the President to respond to the dear
est hopes of his volunteer " eulogists, has
" struck to the stomach" of the entire
rebel .crew. They are as unfortunate in
their loves as they are impotent in their
hates and malignancies. '
The appoiptanent of Ex-Governor
Johnston, of I 4 ittsbuErg, to the Collec
torship of the Allegheny, district, re
minds us of a few lines to he found in
Macaulay's " Lays of Ancient Rome" :

This is the sa e W
tiWm. F. Johnston
who, in 1852, wen down on his knees
and solemnly recanted his anti-slavery
heresits , before the Baltimore Convert
, •
It is also the same Wm, F. Johnston
who, in 1856, undertook to force himself
upon the Republican party as its candi
date for-Vice President. - Fallibg at Phil
adelphia, he set up for himself, "on his
own hook," and was probably induced
to get out of the way by promise of a
place should Fremont be elected. He is
a sot mow, and classed among wind-bro
ken politicians. The people - will see
out of what sort _of material Senator
Cowan is to' construct the new party.
We see that Mr. James Buchanan,
once President of the United States, has
taken the field, (or council,) for Mr. Cly
mer. Mr. Buchanan seems to be for
getful of the fact that Clymer is already
a "dead duck," having died of his rec
ord. For this reason Mr. Buchanan,
who is remarkable for rewarding his en
emies and punishing his friends, should
forbear championship of Mr. Clymer.
He is already dead, politically; and this
attempt to re-kill him, by Mr. Buchan
an, is in disregard of the injunction:
de mortuia, &c. The statute against
suicide should be enforced. -
In the debate upon the bill to amend
the habeas Obrpus act, in the J.T.
Senate,'week, Mr. Cowan got very
sarcastic upon the immense State of
New Hampshire." In the course of his
remarks he -said that he could not be
frightened into submission to the'major
ity of the Senate,
Certainly not, Mr. Cowan. There are
two classes who are never afraid—chil
dren and fools. Take your choice.

To the Welsh Congrogational Chuith, Charles

Taylor Farm, nine miles from Florfolk, a hos of
clothing for the Freedmen, marked -as -coming

of many of them. I remember that one flannel

tibia, and reflected much credit upon the author.
Wednesday Lveurng, u large audience assem
bled to listen to a lecture by Professor Streit, of
the State Normal School. His subject was, as he
stated, out of - the beaten track, being no" less
than a graphic presentation of
, medieval times in
the person of the representative man of that sto
ried B)3O—nILDEBIWiD, known in history as Pope
Gregory Seventh. The 'teams. was able in its
grouping of historical characters, and showed tote
close student of history. The teaching =forded,
as the power of disciplined intellect when di
rected perseveringly. to the attainment of
,a single
object. Liken ilia:, the irresistible power of know
ledge, directed to the control of unenlightened

The lectare on Thursday evening was by Pro
falser F. A. Allen, Principal of the Normal
School. We find it extremely 4ifficult to - speak of
this lecture as it destirves. Perhaps' no man in
Pennsylvania can's° forcibly and effectively pre
sent the truths which underlie and np-bearizealth
ful society, as Professor Allen. Prom youth a
teacher of youth, he has bad the remarkable-for
tuns to overbear and bold in complete check the
narrowing influences which unavoidably belittle
minds less self-poised and say-contained, when
long subjected to the task of training:intellect of
less measure of discipline. s,o, in his lecture, or
" conversation," as he namedit, ho was intensely
practical. His illustratione,,going to show- the
influence of example upon children, were - direct
and most happy. He addressed himself to pa
rents, citizens and professional teachers, and went
do - Wil to the roots of evils now cropping out, in
the lives and behavior of the rising generatien.
The exciting causes of unrulyand mannerlessle
havior, were stated clearly and convincingly; and
the responsibility for this state of things was
lodged where it belongs—with every adult mart
and woman. We have heard more brilliant, and
more showy discourses, but never one more emi
nently practical, more apposite to the theMe r - ar
more profound in its dealings with the philosophy
of expanding and ennobling mind, and soul, by
systematic discipline.
The lectures of Friday - evening were by Rev.
J. F. Calkins and Professor Allen ; the theme of
the former being Common Sehools—how to ele
vate them in public estimation. .The speaker
took a common sense view of the subject, and
was therefore eminently practical in his applica
tion of facts.
Professor dilen's remarks touched the subject
of " graded schools;" chiefly, but related to the
whole system of popular education. He brought
to bear upon.the subject, the experience and ob.
serration of a life-time of devotion to the cause
of education. Occupying a first place in the
ranks of educators in the State, his suggestions
were listened to with great interest, and, we trust,
to the permanent profit of teachers and parents.
