'-_ not make them believe that it is right.

has more philanthropy, he is a better

and with these advantages, am I afraid
to take my chances in a race with him,
and compete with him in merit, honor,
and private worth? If so, then I might
well oppose his elevation, and so might
any man.
It is a part of the same old dogma,
• this eternal warfare against the rights
of the poor and the weak. Just in pro
portion as we elevate the masses, white
and black, who are the laborers of the
land, in the same proportion all other
classes will be elevated. No human
. mind can invent a policy to elevate the
lower class, and at the same time de
press the elevated. There is no such
principle in morals. It is as impossible
as it is that light and darkness should
exist together.. The people of the Uni
ted States should understand this. They
have tried it farther than we have, and
understand it thoroughly.
Mr. Seward all Right.
It seems to us quite strange that so
much fault should be found with Mr.
Seward's terms of restoration of the reb
el States.
He said, in one of his Auburn speech
es, that they came back like the
prodigal son, and desired admission, he
was perfectly willing, for his part, to
receive them and to kill the fatted calf."
Is anything wrong in these condi
tions ? Let us inquire how the prodigal
came back.
First. He came voluntarily.
Second. He came bankrupt.
Third. He came penitent.
Fourth. He came confessing his sins
against Heaven and his father.
Fifth. He came foregoing the 802 8
place, and asking only the servant's
To comply with Mr. Seward's condi
tions, the rebel States must come,
First. Voluntarily. But they have
come back only because they were whip
ped back.
Second. Bankrupt. They meet this
condition ; but some of them want ano
ther slice to make lip for what they have
squandered on those twin harlots, sla
very and rebellion.
Third.. Penitent. They are very sor
ry, but it is only because their rebellion
was a failure.
Fourth. ConfeSsiug their sin. But,
like the Pharisee, they justify rebellion,
or the going away from their father's
Fifth. Acknowledging the forfeitre
of their prerogatives as States ; but, •n
-stead of this, they boldly demand he
son's place—that is, the same rights and
privileges as if they had stayed athorne
and behaved themselves.
Now, it seems tons that Mr. Seward's
theology is as correct as his statesman
ship, and that it would be well for him
to advise Uncle Samuel,' that kissing
these prodigals before they have com
plied with these terms, is not orthodox.
The position of Mr: Seward is evi
dently all right. We seel however, one
objection to it. If we keep our fatted
calf till the prodigal States comply with
ins terms, our calf will have become an
ox before we can keep the feast. Still,
on the whole, it will be as well, perhaps,
to wait, as Uncle Sam has plenty of
corn.— Washington Chronicle.
Clymer and the Pennsylvania Reserves
On the 12thof April, 1961, when Sum
ter was already beleaguered, and sullen
threats of defiant treason carne rum
bling from the South, it was moved in
the Legislature of Pennsylvania to arm
the State—to put the old Commonwealth
in a condition to defend itself; and pro
tect the homes and the women and chil
dren within its borders. On this mo
tion, prompted by the instincts of free
doin and patriotism, Hiester Clymer,
then a Senator in the State Legislature,
misrepresenting a State which was the
cradle of the Revolution, voted It
seems hard to believe it—it seems a
strange thing to credit—but so it is, and
the record of infamy is emblazoned for
over and ever in the legislative minutes.
There were but six men in the Senate
of Pennsylvania so lost to all sense of
honor or of shame as to vote against self
defence, and Mester Clymer was one of
Would that every man and woman

Clymer was in faverpeof surrendering
without firing a shot. He quailed at
the pistol and bowie knife, and oaths of
truculent traitors, before they had shot
ted one gun or marched 6ue step. Hies

the Declaration of Independence, cow

lash, and was willing to trail the colors
of a Commonwealth consecrated by a
thousand memories of revolutionary
suffering and sacrifice without a strug

What right has he to face a woman in
this whole land ?--the recreant dastard •

bear that record?
This same bill organized the Penn

of the Commonwealth. Clymer would
have strangled this corps in its cradle.
He would have had ?ennsylvania, of
all the Northern States, alone, without
a son to defend her. Every soldier of
the glorious Reserves went out against
this man Clymer's will, and won the
undying honor, which it ever will be,
to hive been enrolled in those immortal
legions in spite of Clymer. He proved
his own manhood and shielded his own
home, and gathered new laurels for the
eagles of the Commonwealth, in defi

Soldiers of the Old Reserves, you men

WE regretto announce that the Sen
ate has postponed the tariff bill to the
10th of December next. The friends of
American industry will be much disap
pointed by this dilatory action of the
nounced as a candidate for 11. S. Senator
from this State. As the announcement
comes by his home paper, we presume
it is authentic.
With so many true men in the field,
we cannot repeat the awful farce which
closed with the election of Edgar Cowan.
Hon. JOHN M. Bows, of Virginia, in
a speech made at Baltimore recently,
said : "We are all Johnson men ; the
only difference being, that one goeS for
what Sofinson says, and the other for
what he does."
That defines our position. We go for
what Johnson says he will do—make
treason odious. We don't go for what
he is doing—making treason , a venial
crime. Not at ail.
We hope every patron of the AGITA
TOR, will read the speech of Gov.. A. J.
HAMILTON, of Texas, which we publish
on the ~first page ; and having read it
aloud to his family, let him pass it over
to somebody who hit not read it.
Seldom have we read a speech so tren
chant in its declaration
,of fact, '".so in
controvertible in logic, and so scathing
in its irony.
It rings like steel.
Do you doubt the loyalty of Governor
Hamilton? Do you suppose he would
be permitted to occupy a seat in the Cop
per-Johnson Convention to assemble in
Philadelphia on the 14th of next Au
Not a bit of it. That Convention will
admit such double-dyed traitors as Al
exander H. Stephens, Vallandigham,
Wise, and their fellow-rebels. But its
doors will be closad against men who,
like Gov. Hamilton, have stood up a
gainst treason, when to do so was to in
vite almost certain' death on the nearest
Neither Gov. Hamilton nor John M.
Botts, nor Joshua Hill, of Georgia, will
participate in the Philadelphia horned
horse Convention.
We ask your attention to the follow
ing extract from the speech alluded to :
•' I love the entire Government, and my allegi
ance is due and paid with Willing heart to the
whole Government of the United States. I love
all its loyal people, North and South, black and
white. Every man that lovee the Government to
my friend and I hie; and every man that loathes
and bates it, and will not be reconciled to it, and
hopes to have it broken up, is my enemy, and I
intend ho shall remt4in my enemy. I cannot con
sort with him. I spurn him! You saythis isnot
the way to conciliate men. Ido not wish to con
ciliate Such mch—it is time thrown away. If you
attempt to extend the mantle of charity, it is so
much glen for' n ought."
We thank Gov. Hamilton for that de
cisive declaration. That is our platform.
Conciliate blatant traitors ' and their
Northern sympathizers! As soon would
we undertake to conciliate assassins—
For one, we have Jul forgiveness to ex
pend upon unrepentant offenders. If
men Sin they must suffer. It is so writ
ten, land we t woUld not blot out a letter
of the recor6l.
Some things may not be conciliated.
We do not conciliate the gang of men
who steal horses and break into houses
and stores by system. We try, convict,
and put them into the Penitentiary.—
We do not conciliate incendiaries ; but
we catch, try, convict, and Imprison.—
We do not conciliate murderers. We
hang them. •
Theft, burglary, arson, and murder
are high crim4s. But there is a higher
crime than any of these. That higher
crime is TREASON against the State. •
. g. i
But w, en it is, proposed to punish
these hi ' hest of all criminals, a set of
men who gave them all the encourage
ment they could to' persist in the com
mission of crime, exhort us to " concil
iate" the 'traitors. They whine over the
incarceration of Jeff. Davis, who break
fasts, dines, and sups on -richer viands
than any man we know of, up herein
the mountains. But we have yet to hear
the first one of these conciliators whine
over the awful bill of fare which rebel
leaders set before our boys in Anderson
Conciliate Jeff. Davis? We:saY, try,
convict, and hang Jeff. Davis!
We close with a single quotation from
the speech in hand. It is commended
to every man who is jealous of the ne
gro :

We see by the Lycoming•Gazette that
Mr. Theodore Wright, vaid-wns not
elected Congressman in this district in
1864, has again consented to•the use of
his name and fortune. With this we
find no fault. Mr. Wright is about as
unobjectionable as any man of his stripe
in the district. He has also amassed a
fortune by operations in Petroleum, and
ought to divide. How much it cost him
in 1864 we cannot say. Rather more
than $lOOO in Tioga, probably ; not less
than that in each of the other counties,
we guess. BLit the fruit of his much ex
penditure hi Tioga county compares'
well with a statement we once saw of
the cost of converting a single Jew by
the British Missionary Society. Taking
the whole amount of money expended
for that purpose and dividing it among
the converts, it turned out that the cost
of converting a - Jew was £50,000, or
$250,000. Mr. Wright's money did not
get him one vote extra in Tioga county.
Nor will it do better this year. He will
poll the full " democratic" vote of the
district, and so would " any other man"
of his color in politics.
There is one striking and original sen
tence is the address of the Copperhead
members of 1 Congress eudorsing Mr.
Cowan's call for a National Convention
in August, at Philadelphia. It is this :
" The Constitution is in danger !"
Some of our gray-headed readers loam
have seen this expreasieu before. We
do not like to say that it is entirely new
to us, even. But there is'a great deal of
eloquence in it nevertheless.
" The Constitution is in danger." '
Possibly. We remember that the
late grand attempt to destroy that "Cit
adel of our liberties," was preceded l by
just such cries from the pro-slavery
We remember, too, that after seven
States had repudiated the Constitution
and framed another, James Buchanan
said that the Constitution could not pro
tect itself—that there, was no remedy.
We, recollect of thinking then that a
Constitution which could not protect
itself, was not much to brag of. It would
never be out of danger. '
But four years of war against rebell
ion in arms and Copperheadism in ,the
rear, proved that there was a remedy,—
that the Constitution could protect it
self. That question is settled.
But we do 'pot- remember that any
Copperhead Congressman, or truckling
editor of that stripe, sounded the alarm,
"The Constitution is in danger," when
the South seceded. It was only when
the Government proposed to put down
a war upon the Constitution, that these
Verbose Falstaffs discovered peril to the
Just so long as Congress keeps Its foot
on the neck of these rebels, will they
" The Constitution is in danger."
It reminds us of a little affair which
came off in Wellsboro not many years
ago. A Copperhead was mouthing the
Constitution at a furious rate, when a
war democrat said to him :
" The Constitution ! Why; you dirty
dog, you can't repeat three words of the
Constitution !"
And heecouldn't.-
The moral of ,whieh is, that those Who
talk so glibly of the constitution know
least about it.
The Southern press is raving
over the shackling of Jeff. Davis. What
isl i .jeff. Davis but a villsviA, guilty of the
sum of all villainies—Treason ? Being
a villain and a traitor, why , should he
be treated better or worse than other
great villski s?
One paper declaro that England's
treatment of Napoleon was kind and
courteous compared with that of Jeff.
Davis by the Government. Was Napo
leon a traitor? No ! Then where is the
The reply of the loyal North to these
ravings is : Remember Andersonville;
remember Salisbury; remember Belle
Isle ; remember Fort Pillow ; remember
all the aboriginal barbarity of the infu
riated slave-breeders; remember, and
let justice be meted out to the head and
front of this awful offending.
Andrew Johnson, the people expect
you to redeem your pledge to make trea
son odious. You can do it if you are
not totally demoralixed. Release Davis,
and you crown treason with bays.
The Copperhead editors may dry their
tears. Jeff. Davis authorizes a contra
diction of the relation of his being
shackled, as published in Dr. Craven's

and twenty others, who have passed the
fiery ordeal of rebellion without swear
ing allegiance to its leaders.
The light breaks in.

against the persons of citizens, without

The crowd thought better of it.—
Friend Young carried too many guns.

bellowed itself - hoarse about Free Speech
and free presses, a year or so ago ?
Guess it was.
What's the matter ?
The men who went to fight the bat
tles of the Union were, as a rule; men
of intelligenneand independentthought.
Hundreds of them—ay, thousands—
were just as fit to lead regiments as those
who did lead them.
What a high compliment, then, do
those politicians pay the rank and file,
when they excuse their fighting to put
down the armed Democracy of the
South, on the ground that they, the
rank and file, were honest and well
meaning, but deluded.
Which is equivalent to saying that the'
volunteers went into the fight without
any knowledge of what they went for,
and ignorant of the issues involved.
Some of the Coppery papers are mak
ing a great spread over a Johnson meet
ing held in Towanda, which was "par
ticipated in by some of the most influ
ential Republicans of the - county," as
these papers say. "Allen McKean,
'once a member of the Legislature, an
influential Republican, and a son of
Hon. Samuel McKean, who was form
erly United States Senator, presided,"'
say these papers.
The laugh comes in all along. Allen
McKean, in addition to his virtues as
above 'Med, was reputed a defaulter to
the State but a year or two ago. That
should have been put in also. The al
lusion to his father reminds us of the
old sarcasm of some Irish orator, who
remarked of some boaster of pedigree,
that he Was like a potato—the best part
Of the balance of influential Repub
licans, mention is made of Elhanan
smith and Mr. H. W. Tracy. The enu
merationzoes no further. The reputa
tion and influence of each of these men
improves in the square of the distance
you happen to be from Bradford county.
That sort of whistle won't bear blow
ing, gentlemen. You can't get rrup a
Johnson-Republican party in the nor
thern tier.
" Occasional," the Washington correspondent of
the Philadelphia Press, says that as soon as Con.
Bess adjourns, "an indiscriminate removed gee.
cry national of who does not slavishly
yield to the plan of securing to the South the same
power in the national councils which else
_held be
fore the sebeninn, will take place."
Well, let it come. Office is slavery at
the best. Therefore let Mr. Johnson is
sue his emancipation proclamation, and
the sooner the better. We should prefer,
hoe-cake and water to bread-and-butter
at such a cost. Forward, the "Bread
and-Butter Brigade!" Fall in for ra
tions ! '
. The papers are making much ado a
bout a soldier who came home from the
war with an arm ep badly wounded that
the 'Surgeon wished to amputate it. His
sweetheart, whom he soon aftermarried,
objected, and herself nursed the woun
ded arm until it healed. In due time a
baby was born into the house, having
but one arm, the other being a stump ,
with the scar of the bullet hole at the
base thereof. That is remarkable.
The Tariff bill iii!ased the House on
the lOth instant, ink a vote of 94 to Ekc.f:
.This bill Adums the duty on railroad
iron, salt, sugar, tea, and coffee. On
the latter articles the duty is reduced
one-half. We regard this as bad policy.
The luxuries of life ought to be taxed
to the utmost. The duty on railroad
iron, alio, might have been increased
rather than diminished. The bill is
considerably better than none, however,
- and might have been worse.
• The tax bill still hangs fire, but will
'pass soon. The bill as it left the House
reduces the internal revenue tax $lOO,-
000,000. This is doing pretty well, con
sidering all things. And unless "my
policy!' of rewarding . treason plunges
into another civil war in the South, the
people may look for a still farther reduc
tion of the rate of taxation next year.
