for mercy ; that he would do forth, and

,tha Field justice, and to confound his',
y. From that time forward Jno.
;Gordon could look upon him as his
:deadly enemy, and remember that, as
he had denied mercy, so would it be de
nied to him. David Bigeloll - strode out
; of the room, while the old man glared
fiercely at the group, who murmured
their admiration of the carpenter, and,
one by one, followed him out.
David Bigelow had left the village,
none knew exactly where, but the sur
mise was that he had gone to London.
Days and weeks slipped by, and noth
ing was heard of him. Martha Field
was still a prisoner awaiting trial. John
Gordon was gaining strength in his
arm, the bone was knitting finely, the
doctor said, but he was not gaining
strength in "The Village Tavern."—
The neighbors came less, and gossiped
less. The story crept about. Even
those who drove up from the city knew
something About it. There was one
thing they could all see, which was,
that John Gordon's face was pale, and
the strengthl of his welcome gone.
The day for Martha Field's trial came.
There was great sympathy for her thro'
all the country. Her story was believed
—but there was no evidence. The pros
ecution made its case very clearly and
distinctly. The loss of the money was
proved, the marking, the tracing of the
marked money to the village shops,
where it had been passed by Martha.—
There was no defence; the very able
counsel, who had volunteered for her,
said that he could only make the state
ment on behalf of the prisoner; and
then he gave Martha's story of how she
had become possessed of the marked
money. There was a dead silence in
the court room as he closed a beautiful
appeal for mercy for the prisoner. In
its midst came a loud groan, and in a
moment after a shuffling of feet, and
several persons were straining to lift a
man who had slipped from one of the
benches, and lay prostrate upon the
floor. It was John Gordon, the strong
man. Weak enough now he was, as
they strove to raise him to his feet. His
eyes were wide open, and looking ea
gerly toward the judge, he said:
" Acquit her ! lam sorry. I know
she tells the truth."
" Put that man back upon the stand,"
the judge says sternly.
his heart had softened, and he could see
the truth in the story the prisoner had
told, now, when he would not see it be
fore. And so they carried him away to
his-cart, and' drove him home.
As they bore the old broken down
man out by one door,
there were eyes
met Martha from the other that made
her heart leap. Each of that jury said,
when speaking of the case afterward,
that they would have acquitted the pris
oner through sympathy, without any
evidence for the defence.
When the eyes of David Bigelow and
Lefty Gordon Met Martha's, she knew
that she wanted no sympathy now to
send her out upon the world without a
stain upon her name forever. The truth
had come, and when Letty Gordon,
now Mm. Philip Conger, threw her
arms about the prisoner's neck and kiss
ed her, while she cried and laughed by
turns, everybody knew the story as
well as though it bad been told. As a
form the evidence must be given,—and
before the tears had dried upon Letty's
cheeks, the verdict was rendered
" Not guilty 1"
How thepeople shouted, until the
judge was obliged to adjourn the court
for an hour to allow the enthusiasm
time to cool. How the news spread like
wildfire through the country town, and
the ladies looked out of their windows
and waived their handkerchiefs to Mar
tha as she passed up the street from the
court house! And how the little boys
burned up all the stray barrels and box
es that night in her honor!
John Gordon retired from being host
of " The Village Tavern," and David
Bigelow and Mrs. Martha Bigelow took
his place, and for.twenty years dispens
ed its hospitalities; after which period,
round in purse and person, they gave
way in turn. John Gordon lived many
years after, undisturbed in the wealth
that by legal right belonged to Letty.—
Philip Conger was not rich, but fortune
prospered with him, and he grew so.
On the night of Martha's arrest, with
the instinct of love, he knew that some
thing was being plotted by John Gor
don, without knowing what, and be
lieved it to be a scheme to remove Lefty.
Watching, be saw old Brown drive to
the door with his cart. He stole noise
lessly to the back of the house. He
heard Martha summoned to the parlor.
There was no time to lose. He knew
every step of the house, and in a mo
ment was , beside Letty. There was no
time for preparation, for thought. While
the two men were accusing Martha in
the parlor, the lovers were flying thro'
the garden, and ignorant of all that oc
curred, until David Bigelow, by never
ceasing search, found them and told the
hope that it is not taking away the I
romance of my tale, to tell that Letty
Gordon and Martha Field, that were,
are both grandmothers, comely and
handsome at that.

For ten years each campaign has been
more important than its predecessor.—
It has been a revolutionary decade. Du
ring these ten years, the great work of
disenthralling the land has been oing
on. It is fn the nature of such struggles
that they should - broaden, and deepen,
and grow in importance, as they near
their final settlement.
And this is why we have found it ne
cessary to say in the opening of each
campaign in the past, that it was to be
the most important in its results of any
which the people had ever been called
to meet. It is for this reason that we
now, at the outset of the campaign for
Governor and Congressman, say, that
the contest is big with fate. Nqne of
us . have ever cast a vote which- at all
compares with the vote we shall each
drop into the ballot-box next October,
life and health spared.
The question is direct and simple. It
ismot whether suffrage shall be univer
sal or limited, though our opponents so
declare. It is not whether this or that
man shall be lifted to this or that place,
though it so appear on the cursory view.
The question, the real question to be dis
cussed and settled by our votes this com
ing fall, is, shall the settlement of nation
al difficulties be given into the hands of
the men who lately undertook the over
throw of this republic, and their aiders
and abettors in the North, or shall the
great Union party, which fought the
fight in field and council and subdued re
bellion in the south and Copperheadism
at home, adjust the balances of justice
and pave the Way to a permanent peace.
That, friends, is Flae question which
we have to settle at the ballot-box in
October. Those who seek to cover it
up, or complicate it, are now t as but
lately, the open enemies of true and
We are among those who, believe
Mester Clymer to be thoroughly separa
ted from the people in education and
sympathy. He is notrepubliean in the
marrow of his mind. He was, beyond
dispute, opposed to the war of national
deliverance, and proved it by his refu.4
sal to vote, as senator, thanks to brave
Union Generals and the as brave sot:
diem who fought the common fight of
mankind and rescued the nation from
the clutches of treason. He proved it
by voting against giving these brave
soldiers the right to vote while fighting
the battles of the country. And by the
unimpeachable record, he can be con
victed of treason in all that constitutes
the essentials of that high crime.
Friends, we have to choose between
such a man to wield chief authority in
this Commonwealth, and the brave and
patriotic Geary, who was in the field do
ing battle for us all, while his opponent
stayed at home, and sought to plant
thorns in the path to national deliver-
We have no difficulty in making the
choice. Rather than cast a vote for

Intelligent men know that Republi

Some, like Mr. Greeley, advocate uni

THE CAMPAIGN OPENED
Col. J. W. FORNEY, editor of the Phi
ladelphia Press, and Secretary of the
Senate of the United States, opened the
campaign in a glowing speech to the
people of Lebauon county, on the 21st
We have never read a more thorough
and exhaustiVe speech than this. Be
ginning with the, initial events - of the
great war for freedom, and following
men, measures, and happenings, con
secutively and closely down to the pres
ent moment, it constitutes an effort of
great power, breadth of view, and im
partiality. In fact, it is a concise rela
tion of the history of the country, in its
political aspect; for the last five years.
What we like particularly in this
speech, is its strongly expressed confi
dence in the virtue andintegrity of, the
people, and its frank treatment of all,
the issues growing out of the work of
reconstruction. It takes great liberties
with the record of public men, and cov
ers up none of the glaring inconsisten
cies which disfigure even the highest
functionary. Col. Forney, in announc
ing himself as a candidate for the Vatted
States Senate, or rather in alluding to
the fact that he had been named as a
candidate for that position, took care to
speak fairly and frankly upon all the
questions now uppermost in the public
mind. Re deelared•himself for impar
tial suffrage, embracing all classes of
American citizens, without respect to
creed, color or nativity,' as the only
means of restoring the republic to a.
state of permanent peace and prosperi
ty. We could have wished fora further
dwelling upon the point, and an argu..
went for basing suffrage upon intelli
gence, which we understood to. be Col.
Forney's meaning in the use of the ad
Col. F. will prove to be a formidable
opponent in the Senatorial contest. He
is a man of remarkable intellectual en
ergy and capacity, and has as good a
record for loyalty as any man in the
country. His speech will probably
bring the other candidates to their feet,
with further declarations of platforms
Last week we published the proposed
constitutional amendment relative to
reconstruction. This was a concurrent
resolution, and as such did not require
the Presidsnt's signature. The Presi
dent had no more to do with it, except
to send it to the Governors of the seve
ral States, than John Doe or Richard
Roe. However, on the 22d of June he
sent in a message to Congress, disap
proving of the constitutional amend
ment. He objects, as usual, that eleven
of the States are not represented in Con
gress, and that the " sovereign people"
of the United States have not had the
matter submitted to them.
His approval or disapproval is of no
consequence. And as to the non-repre
sentation of eleven States, Mr. Johnson
may as well understand, once and for
all, that the loyal men of the Union
will never consent to the admission of
such representatives as have generally
presented themselves at the doors of
Congress. They will never consent to
the admission of ex-rebels to make laws
for this republic. If they were so fatu
ous, they would deserve another war,
as terrible as that just passed through,
and they would get it. Admitthe rebel
States on Johnson's plan, and their rep
resentatives will force another war for
" freedom and independence" upon the
General Government, in less than three
We regret that Mr. Johnson 'should
make such a ridiculous exhibition of
himself as he did in lecturing Congress
upon a a - stater, with the merits or de
merits of which he bad no more to do

pray for oblivion.
