    erousezwellez just. Yoor Legislatures
should be instantly called together, and
proper laws for the government uv the
freedmen should be passed. Slavery is
abolisht, and the people must live up to
the requirements of the act in good faith.
I protest agin any violation uv good
faith, but labor must be done, for the
skripter commands it, and our frail na
chur demands what can't be got with
out it. We don't like to do it, but shell
skripter be violated? Not at all. The
nigger most do it hisself, not ez a slave,
for slavery is abolighed, but ez a free
man. Etheopian citizens of American
descent, which is a mulatter, and full
blooded blacks and all hevin in their
veins a taint uv African blood, must be
restrained gently; and for their own
good I suggest laws ez follows :
1. They must never leave the planta
tion onto which they are, when this act
goes into effect, without a pass from the
employer, under penalty uv bein shot.
2. They shell hey the privilege uv
suein everybody uv their own color, of
they kin give white bail for costs.
3. They shell hey the full privilege uv
bein sued the same ez white folks.
4. They shell be competent ez witnes
ses in cases in which they are not inter
ested, but their testimony is to go for
nothin ef it is opposed by the testimony
uv a white man or another nigger.
5. No nigger shell be allowed to buy
or lease real estate outside uv any incor
porated city, town or village.
6. No nigger shall be allowed to buy
or lease real estate within any incorpo
rated city, town or village, except as
hereinafter provided for, to wit :
He shell give notice uv his desires by
publication for six consecutive weeks in
some noosepaper uv general circulation
in sed village, for which publication h,p
shall pay invariably in advance. He
shell then give bonds in such sums ez
the mayor shall decide, that neither-he,
nor any of his ancestors or descendants
or relations, will ever become public
charges, and' will always behave them
selves with doo humility, the bondsmen
to be white men and freeholders. Then
the mayor shall cause a election to be
proclaimed, and ef the free white citi
zens shall vote "yea" unanimously, he
shall be allowed to buy or lease real es
tate. If there is a dissenting vote. then
he shell be put onto the chain gang for
six months, for his impudence in mak
ing such a request,
7. Their wages shell be such ez they
and their employers shell mutually
agree but that the niggers shell not be
come luxurious and effeminate, which
two things is vices which goes to sap
the simplicity and strength of a people,
the sum shell never exceed $5 a month,
but not less than enuff in all cases to
buy him one soot uv cloos per annum,
which the employer shall purchase his
8. The master shell hey the privilege
we audit' to this cone such inher rules
and regulations for their proper govern
ment ez may strike him ez being gold
for em, from time to tinte.
These provisions sekure the nigger in
all the rites which kin be reasonably
asked for him, just elevated ez he is
from slavery and thrown out upon-the
world ignorant of the duties of his new
position and status. He is simple, and
needs the guidin hand of the stronger
My hart is too full to make further
suggestions. Organized into a tabloo,
with the constitooshun in one hand,
(which beluved instrument kivers a
great deal of ground,) a sear-spangled
banner in the other, and a tramplin on
a bloo coat, which I stripped off uv a re
turned nigger Bolger which wuz sick, I
exultingly exclaim, "'The union ez itis
is ez good ez the unit ez it was. 'Ror!"

Utley on "Bread and Suttee—He Tells
a Little Story.
Col. Utley, of the Racine Journal,
goes in decidedly for the " bread and
butter policy." Alluding to the report
that Es-Governor Randall says those
v?ho eat the President's bread and but
ter must sustain the President's policy,
he says:
"Now we like this cleanin out ope
ration. We are going to s stain this
policy. Not for bread and utter, for
we should never get any of that, if we
were to forfeit our soul in behalf of all
his policies. We do it for the purpose
of having the Republican party weeded
out, preparatory to the coming in of a
new dispensation. For every man that
was a Republican from principle will
scorn the bribe, and every one that was
a Republican for what he could make
out of it will tick the hand that holds
the axe. What a precious haul John
son will make! It will be what our
fishermen call a water-haul. It may be
that some of our readers don't know
what that means. We will tell them for
nothing, although it cost us five dollars.
This thing happened to us in an early
day, as long ago as we were keeping the
old Fulton house in this city. It was
before they got these new fangled gill
and pond nets. It happened in this,
way : We had been keeping tavern
through a severe, hard, dull winter.—
House full of boarders that never missed
a meal nor paid a cent. (Their bills re
main with us unto this day.) We had
been running the thing on suckers for
some time, when we heard they were
catching trout down on the lake shore,
and we concluded we would change the
diet of our boarders, lest they should
leave us. We were a little green then,
which was a very excellent, thing for
that class of boarders. (They never
leave.) But to the fish etory. We went
down to the beach. They made Ei splen
did haul just as we got there—lots of
trout and white fish. Well, we negoti
ated for the next haul for five dollars,
and the fishermen put out to iiast their
net. The net was very long, and cov
ered a quarter of a mile of lake. It was
a cold, raw day, and after shivering
around there for about two hours, the
thing began to draw in to the shore,—
We were all excitement. There were
evident signs of a big haul. Fisher
men offer us an advance on the haul.—
Couldn't think of it. Head fisherman
congratulates us. How the water foams
as the net nears the shore ! Large white
sides roll under the water. There were
lounders there, that was certain. Well,
they were dragged out on the sand, at
last, when the old fisherman turned to
us with the most blank countenance
that we have ever seen before or since,
and says, ' Bill,' (that was before we
got to be a colonel and general, and all
them sort of things.) says he, ' Bill, I
swear, we've made a water-haul." A
water-haul ?' says we. ' How is that?
There is a wagon load in the net.' So
there is,' says he, ' but they are the tar
nalest meanest things the Lord ever
made, and nobody can tell what He
made them for. They are neither come
ly to look at nor fit to eat. There is no
chance for decent fish when they are
around.' We stopped and took a look
at our water-haul, and we must say they
were the filthiest,meanest looking things
we have ever seen in the shape of fish.
We asked him what he called them. He
said he called them lawyers. H e wa s
unable to satisfy us that there was any
like tir similarity between those crea
tures and that most respectable portion
of our fellow citizens. We started for
the house a wiser, if not a wealthier cit
izen. As we turned to go, the oldash
ennan said to us, ' Bill, I'm right sorry
about this haul on your amount; but
I'm mighty gladto get rid of these die
graceful critters. They area great curse
to us. Theie will be a chance - to make
a haul of better fish now.'
" When Johnson hauls his net that he
has east among the officeholders, to the
shore, although it looks promising and
the net seems full, he will come to the
same conclusion that the old fisherman
did, and swear it's a Water-haul, or at
least that they are the `tarnalest, mean
est lot of critters the Lord ever made;
and he will wonder why He ever made
them ; and the Republican party can
console themselves that there will be a
chance for honest men now." 1p

WEDNESDAY, MAY :30, 1866
With MALICE toward none, with MARLEY for ALL, with
firmness in the wort, let ns strive to finish the work
we are in, to bind up the nation's wound., to care
for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his
widow and orphans, and to do all which may achieve

The Tribune says, "We do not fire a
100-pounder to kill a wren."
Ah—but that is Just what the Presi
dent is addicted to.i Why remonstrate ?
We see that the half-breed :Republi
cans and Copperheads have combined
against Hon. G. W. Julian, for Con

Republican victories are so common
that we neglected to chronicle the result
of the first city charter election in Will
iamsport, on the 16th inst. • Maj. J. M.
Wood was elected Mayor by 104 major
ity. The Select Council stands six Re
publicans to two Copperheads, and the
Common Council twelve Republicans
to four Copperheads. This is the first
time for many years that the Copper
headshave not earned `the charter elec

We have special reference to the work
of the old dame In this Commonwealth.
This is the situation: son. Mester
Clymer has been selected by the " dem
ocracy" as thei r candidate for Governor.
Gen. John W. Geary has'been select
ed by the Republicans as their candidate
for Governor.
Mr. Clymer,, in the language of his
own home paper, is "the Vallandig
ham of Pennsylvania." Our readers
understand that. In other words, Mr.
Clymer, during the effort of the Gov
ernment to put down the rebellion, ad
hered to the enemies of the Govern
ment, encouraged his fellow Copper
heads in Congress to vote against, men
and money to carry on the war, and op
posed the passage of a bill to enable the
soldiers of Pennsylvania to vote while
in the military service.
During this period, Gen. Geary was
at the head of his regiment, brigade and
division, fighting against the rebels,
that rebellion might be crushed and the
integrity of the Government main
You will see, at once, that Mr. Cly
mer's record is not a pleasant one to ex
hibit among the people ; more particu
larly among the 200,000 returned sol
diers whom he labored and voted to dis
franchist. In fact, his party seem to
regard his election as entirely out of the
What, therefore, is to be done? Lis
ten to Rumor: " They Say"—
That Senator Cowan is authorized to
measure the Republican party in his
silver half-bushel. Every Republican
who puts his foot in that measure is to
have the place, post office or otherwise,
of eery republican place-holder who
will not put his foot in it.
Then, after the half-bushel test - 8411
be thoroughly tried, the dignified Sen
ator will take a riddle or sieve with
holes one half-inch square, and go out
among Republicans to sift them. Eve
ry Republican who can be shaken thro'
the sieve is to be baptized into the new
Conservative, copper-bottomed and cop
per-fastened party which is to inherit
all the plunder within the gift of An
drew Johnson ; and then sit in the great
Conservative Valhalla and drink beer
from the skulls of the radicals.
Then, on or about the 4th of July
next, these „redeemed, regenerated, and
disenthralled disciples of "my policy,"
are to congregate in -Pittsburg, and se
lect some military man to run for Gov
ernor, against Gen. Geary.
The object of the Convention is, of
course, to put a third man in the field
so as to "divide and conquer" the Re
publican party.
But dignified Senators, armed with
measures and sieves, have more than
one string to their bows. On consulta
tion with the people, Senator Cowan,
obtuse though he may be, has discover
ed that few Republicans are ready to
put their foot into his silver measure;
still fewer will shake through a half
inch hole. What then?
Listen to Rumor : " They Bay"—
That Mr. Clymer, having become con
vinced that he stands no chance to be
elected, propoSes to withdraw from the
contest and accept a foreign mission
from President Johnson. Upon this the
" Democracy" will meet in Convention,
and after deploring the declination of
Mr. Clymer, will proceed to nominate
son. pre°. R. Barrett, at present a resi
dent of Clearfield county, but Judge of
the Wayne judicial district.
That would be a nice arrangement.—
Judge Barrett is a man (*considerable
ability, fine presence, and fair personal
popularity. • He was-net particularly
obnoxious to the charge - of sympathiz
ing with rebellion during the. war, tho'
he is incapable of sympathizing with
any Party not engineered by such men
as Hiester Clymer.
Bat, unfortunately for this arrange
meta, Judge Barrett has recently deliv
,cred a partisan charge to a Wayne jury,
in which he denounces the act of Con
gress disfranchising deserters, as uncon
stitutional. If Judge Barrett expects
to find favor with honorably discharged
soldiers in that way, he will be bitterly
disappointed. Soldiers regard the pun
ishment of disfranchisement as light
Whether the prognostications of
" They Say" shall be justified by events,
or not, the fact that there is a plan to
di•‘/de the Republican party, with a
view to its subjugation, is not to be dis
puted. It will fail. There is no likeli
hood of any extensive demoralization of
the party which rescued the country
from death at the hande of treason, and
which will now preserve it from the ill
judged policy, of the President.
Third parties never succeed in getting
any permanent foothold. It is not in the
nature of things that any man can rally
a party around him, and hold it subject
to his will, for any considerable period
of time. The soil is too thin and poor
to sustain a vigorous growth. The edu
cation of the people for five years past
is actively adverse to the growth of such
a party. Whether a Convention be held
at Pittsburg, and a half-breed Republi
can put in the field against Gen. Geary,
or whether Mr. Clymer be • withdrawn
from the field, and a new, and possibly
less obnoxious man, be substituted as
the 'candidate of the "Democracy," in
our judgment makes not a particle of
difference. The • Republican party oc
cupies too large a space in history to be
divided and defeated in detail. The
people cannot be deceiVed into any
movement so absurd. If any eoldier,
heretofore acting with the party, sees fit,
to enter the field against Gen. Geary,'
he will invite the fate which overtook'
the gallant Slocum in New York, last
fall. Treason cannot regain power thro'
the fulmination of borrowed thunder. '
The new Excise Law in New York is
playing the deuce with the rum and
beer sellers. A license to sell rum posts
$250, and for beer, $lOO. Why not? If
revenue •is wanted, why not put the
price of:a license up among the pictures?
But the great effect of this law, accor
ding to-the New York Herald, will be
to use tip the big Copperhead majority
in the city. It says that by this law
hundreds of manufactories of " Demo
cratic" votes will be closed.
Awful ! Positively awful !
The Tribuir said a pretty good thing
when it declared that "it is no part of
the American system to make our obli
gations types of eternity."
Certainly, give us a five per Cent.
to take the place of the other loans

The loyal Virginians are holding a
State Convention in Alexandria. Sonie
of their proceedings are decidedly radi

that he was born with a silver spoon in
his mouth ; that he had lost everything
by the rebellion, to which he was op
,posed from the beginning to the end;
and that he was in favor of the recon
struction policy of Congress, by which
treason would be made infamous, and
opposed to the policy of Andrew John
son, which rewarded traitors.
Another man, a Mr. Lewis, among
other things, said that he could not see
any other way than to give the bahot to
the negro; that he could see no differ
ence between "going with the democ
racy and going to the devil."
Well, we don't see any difference be
tween tho two " soot)." Going with the
Democracy is a short cut to the devil.
A most destructive fire occurred in
New York last Tuesday morning, caus
ing a loss of $3,500,000. The fire was
kindled in the Academy of Music, the
largest and most magnificent opera
house in America, whence it spread in
every direction. The University Medi-,
cal College, with its valuable apparatus!,
and collection of curiosities, two piano'
factories,' two churches, and a dozen—
other buildings, were totally destroyed.
There seems to be no question that the
fire was set by an incendiary.
A Copperhead exchange says that
when the Union "goes up," the Repub

We are obliged to Senator Cowan for
a copy of his speech on the report of

reading it we observe that his sympa

as they have been during the major part
of his Senatorial term.
Some of the Copperhead papers below
the mountain are making a very little
capital out of Gov. Curtin's silence upon
the great issues of the day. One or two
state, positively, that Gov. Curtin ia
not in favor of Gen. leary's election,
but will throw his influence for Clymer,
or some stool pigeon who may be nomi
nated as a "Johnson candidate." •
We doubt if the Goveinor is quite so
obtuse as this gives him credit for-be
ing. He will, doubtless, have consid
ered the plain truth, that his popularity
arises from his conduct during the war,
and not from aught more personal and
peculiar. He is a , man of some ambi
tions. He comprehends, of course, the
fact, that occupying a doubtful position
in these days, would " fling", him, so
far as any preferment at the hands of
the people is concerned.

To DAIRYMB4I.—Most of the Cheese
Factories hereabon:a a+ probably in operation at
this time, and notwithstanding the prognostica
tions of some, we prophesy that there will be
a greater quantity of cheese made in Tioga coun
ty this season than last. By looking over the
market reports it will be seen that Factory Cheese
commands a higher priCe than any save the Eng
lish Dairy. The reason of Akio is apparent to
every one at all familiar with cheese making.—
Small dairies cannot get an even quality o
cheese, the quantity being small, and some of the
curd having parted with its best properties by
exposure to the atmosphere while waiting for
enough to accumulate to make a cheese of proper
dimensions. Factory Ches.'se is remarkable for
its evenness texture andosuality.
There is, however, one fault with the factory
cheese made hereaboit. hii too rich. There is
toe until butter in , it, both for health, and for
priniervatinm The highest priced cheese in mar
ket, a few years ago, was made of milk, from half
the quantity,or which just so 4 tnuch cream as ris
es while the milk is parting with its inimai
heat, was taken. The night's milk was set
n a cool place, and the cream taken off early
next morning. The milk was then pht in with
the morning's milk.
In our opinion—founded upon observation
while a boy, upon a dairy farm--cheese is better
for the stomach, and cures better, when prepared
in this way. If some of the proprietors of cheese
factories would try it for a week, setting the pro
duct for that week by itself, and leaving it to cure
in the ordinary wey, they might satisfy them
selves of the truth or error of this opinion at
small cost.- If we are correct, then our farmers
will be the gainers; and if not correct, nobody
can lose much by the experiment.

When to Revive the Democratic Party.
Hon. Yohn Sherman, of Ohio, in a
speech made at Bridgeport, Connecticut,
in touching on the question'of the revi
val of the Democratic party, told the
following story, describing the simple
logic of Gov. Todd, of Ohio, an old De:
mocrat, concerning the vitafizirig of the
Democracy :
"A modern Democrat came to a dis
tinguished Democrat of the State of
Ohio, (Gov. ,Todd,) list fall, after the
war had ended, and said: `Now my
friend, you supported Lincoln all till.°
the war; now the war is over; you hal"
had everything your own way; and
now suppose we startagain the old De
mocratic party?' Well,' said the old
Ohio Democrat, ' I don't know but that
would be a good thing ; I like the Dem
ocratic party; I was raised in it, and I
stuck to it until it deserted the country
'and went over to the rebels. I don't
know but it would be a good thing to
revive and purify the old party ; but I
would not do it just yet.' Ah,' said
his friend, ' when would you do it, then?'
'My friend' said the Ohio Democrat,
when the 'Union party shall have dis
charged in full all the obligations it has
assumed during the war ; when it shall
have paid all the pensions that are due
to widows of soldiers; when it shall
have paid every dollar of the national
debt incurred during the war ; when it
shall have punished all the rebels; when
In short it shall have accomplished all
that it has promised to do, then I am
willing that the old Democratic party
should be revived. lam not willing to
trust the Democratic party to perform
obligations that they opposed in their
contracting. I prefer to see it done my
self—to pay my old debts myself.' "
