Reminiscences of the C4l•C'r'sll9
Au old correspondent furnishes us
with the followin• , reminiscences of the
Southern chivalry. showing their char
acteristics as exhibited in the Brooks
assault on Sumner. in the rebel procliv
ity to fight their enemies by concealed
torpedoes, and in their fiendish treat
ment of prisoners.—Newark Advertiser.
"I met in 1831, in Columbus, Geor
gia, a young lawyer named Camp, who
was, I believe, of the Newark family.
He was a young man of great promise,
but unfortunately became embroiled in
a quarrel with his political opponents,
which resulted in his death. He was a
Whig, a supporter of Henry Clay, and
was nominated for Congress against Mr.
Wolfolk, the State Rights candidate.—
Mr. Camp was popular, and there seem
ed no way to defeat his election but to
get him out of the way ; so occasion was
found for a quarrel, and a challenge was
sent by Mr. Wolfolk, with the expecta
tion, I presume, that Mr. C. would a
bandon the first rather than expose his
life to the chances of a duel with ayoung
chivalrous Southron. This expectation
was disappointed ; the challenge was
accepted, and the parties met at Fort
Mitchell. I was present at the duel.—
At the first fire they both fell. Mr.
Wolfolk was shot through the heart and
died instantly. Mr. Camp was danger
ously, though not mortally wounded.—
Some months after his recovery he was
shot down in the street by Col. Milton,
a chivalrous friend of Wolfolk, in the
following manner ;
" Colonel M. stationed himself in a
store which was on Mr. Camp's route
from his house to his office armed with
a double-barrelled gun loaded with buck
shot. As Mr. C. was passing the door.
one barrel was discharged at him, and
as he lay bleeding upon the sidewalk he
received the contents of the remaining
barrel, which soon ended his life. Col.
Milton removed to Florida, where he
was living previous to the war. He has
been, I think, Governor of Florida, but
I was told by one who was an inmate of
his family as tutor to his daughter that
the curse of Cain was upon him."
Reconstruction in Alabama
The New York Post prin s ts extracts
from a letter written by an Alabamian,
a Solithern man by birth and residence,
and who, with several of his relatives,
served in the Union army, in which the
writer thus speaks of public sentiment
in his neighborhood :
" The rebels here are rebels yet, and
we find as much disaffection as ever.—
Union men since the development of
what is here supposed to be President
Johnson's policy; are hardly safe in the
country. The rebels have arrogated a
great deal to themselves, in consequence
of Mr. Johnson's course, and are very
sanguine of another revolution, which
shall somehow end in the re-enslav&-
ment of the negroes. -Known as the
consistent friend of the Government
and of the freedmen, I am especially
obnoxious to the rebels hereabouts, and
almost daily reports are brought to me
that these reconptructed' say I will be
killed if -I do not leave the country.
" You will be best able to s appreciate
the condition of loyal men here when I
tell you that many of my neighbors, in
cluding such men as Judge
his brothers, are thinking seriously of
getting up a large company and aban
doning this State in a body, for a home
somewhere in the West.
" jteconstruction under Mx. Johnson's
policy will force the Union men either
to leave the country or submit to a con
dition scarcely better than that formerly
occupied by the slaves. Young men
who a year ago were proud of having
run away after conscription and joined
,the federal army, are now afraid to
avow the fact, and claim to have been
tal•;en-prisoners, dc. ; and no man is of
any account among the people except
for the services he can boast of having
rendered to the Confederacy. At our
election for Justice of the Peace recently,
one - 7 in the most public place in
our town, cursed the Government, say
ing : ' I was a rebel, and I am a rebel
yet ; hurrah for secession and the rebel
army, and damn them that do not like
" The Freed Men's Bureau bill was an
excellent bill for the loyal Wtite men of
the South, as well as for the ffeedmen,
and so was the Civil Rights bill. We
would have had some showing here if
these measures had become laws. There
is nothing left for us now but to plant
on universal suffrage, and to fight the
fight out on that issue.
' You know that I was earnestly op
posed to negro suffrage, but I conceive
that the course of the President is one
that will ultimately insure its adoption
as the law of the land.
" The Union men of the South feel
their helplessness, and mark my word
for it, though they were unwilling to go
to the negro, they will be willing to
have the n o come to them. They .
will be glad have suffrage conferred
upon him, tat he may be their ally
now, just as they were willing to .have
him armed while the war was pending,
that he might be their ally in the field."
The Philadelphia North American,jitt
the close of some very pertinent and
sensible remarks concerning the Union
party and the position of Mr. Johnson,
sa But to ask us to stand still when the
whole country shows so much need for
our going on, to ask us to be governed
-hy a platform not now " applicable, to
ask us to ignore every live issue and be
take ourselves to a parcel of dead ones,
is sheer nonsense. The President, if he
were disposed to hearken to reason,
might perceive that he cannot possibly
sweep back with , a broom the great
flood that is rushing past him. If he
raust.stand still and be swamped, we
shall regret it more for his sake than
that of the party. For the party is
strong enough to help itself. It did so
without the aid of offices, and it can do
so again whenever it may be necessary.
It is idle now to talk of retrogression.
Let the Administration go where it
chooses, we pronounce for equality be

When Governor Curtin first ran for
Governor, in 1860; the Democrats got
up a story that he shot a, poor man's
dog, and they insisted that he was a
great tyrant and a purse proud ,aristo
crat. Similar stories, suited to thd times,
are now going the rounds of the Cop
perhead papers in regard to Gen. Gea
ry. One appears in the Gettysburg
Compiler, semi -rebel, in which it is sta
ted that Gen. Geary once knocked down
an intoxicated private with his fist for
neglecting properly to salute him. - An
other story is that he refused to eat at a
hotel table because a private soldier was
sitting at one end of it. These are about
equal to the Curtin dog - story, and quite
as destitute of truth. Copperhead pa
pers place a very low estimate on the in
telligence of their readers, when they
print such stuff,

OF CIIMSERLAND comm.
A Copperhead sheet, published in
Wayne county, announces with much
satisfaction that the 'Repablican: party
in Lycoming county is split in twain.
Our Lycoming friends will enjoy that
"goak" muchly. •
We are pained to record the sudden
demise of Capt. G. W. FENN, late one
of the editors of the Upper Dauphin
Register, and for several years connected
with the Harrisburg press. Capt. Fenn
was but 23 years of age, but was one of
the most earnest and vigorous writers
in the State. He served during the war
of the rebellion with much credit. The
country cannot well afford to lose so
useful a man in the present crisis.
The brunt of the European war seems
to have been passed. Austria agrees to
evacuate Venetia and give up' her por
tion of Schleswig Holstein, the joint
theft' of Austria and Prussia from the
Dane. This is all understood. Austria
is further to pay $10,b00,000 to Prussia
and Italy as war expenses. ' :Some folks
may think that this is pretty severe—
making the whipped party pay the bill ;
and it Opelll's to us that our rebels ought
to set up a terrible howl over such injus

of the mire of falsehood and ignorance,
and tell us that there is one word of
truth in the assertion? Did S. F. 'Wil
son ' vote to give the ballot to eithe'r
white or black in Pennsylvania; during
the session ? Did any such issue pre
sent itself in Congress? Come, Mr.T.,
let us have an answer. - Plain yes or no ;
The following is the superscription of
a letter that passed up the Tioga road
some days ago.—Corning Journal.
"P. M.—Before your shipped by " Removing
And some Johnny Reb shoved in quite handy,
Just take this letter to Crooked Creek,

The New Orleans massacre turns out
to have been preconcerted affair. We
have read fully the several reports
from differs .sources, and cannot but
conclude that the whole thing was plan
ned and executed by persons lately in
arms against the Government.
We stated last week that the Conven
tion was reassembled by the Governor.
That was an error. The Chairman of
the Convention issued the call in pur
suance of the law, and the Governor
issued writs of election to fill vacancies.
Only 26 members were present at. the
time the police fired into the room.—
These 26 men had just adjourned, there
being no quorum present. The attack
commenced upon a procession of colored
men which was passing up Canal street,
but soon turned upon the doomed 26,
who were still in the Hall.
Rev. Mr. Horton, Chaplain of the
Convention, went down to display a
flag of truce in token of surrender.—
The rebel police seized him and beat
him so horribly that he has since died.
Dr. Dostie, one of the truest of Union
men during the war, was set upon by
the police, shot five times, and stabbed
in a dozen places. He has since died.
Let it be remembered that not one of
these brutally murdered men was armed.
The sum of the butchery wasloo per
sons killed and 303 wounded, many of
whom have since died.
The reason, did you ask ? The reason
for this massacre, good people, is coinci
den t with that Which caused the bom
ba‘rdment of Fort Sumter by rebels.—
The reason for this outrageous killing
of unarmed men lies in the encourage
ment which Andrew Johnson gives
rebels that they shall be protected in
their fearful oppressions of Union men.
The Convention was just as legal as
law could make it. The Mayor of N.
Orleans is John P. Muiaroe, the very
rebel sent to Ship Island by General
Butler. The very manwhOse recogni
tion as Mayor Andrew Johnson hesita
ted about last spring.
Gen. Sheridan has returned to New
Orleans and again declared martial law.
He undertook to telegraph to General
Grant, but his dispatch was so rebelized
that when he read it in the New York
papers he did not recognize it.
The sequel of this sequel of " my pol
icy" is, that every man who remained•
true to•theUnion during the war, is to
be driven from the South. Upward of
1000 Union men had left for the North
at last advices. They have that choice
—to go, and be at peace, or stay, and
light in a war which will be annihila
tion of one party or the_other.
Let it be remembered that-Andrew
Johnson, the self-vaunted conservator of
constitutional government, is the author
of this massacre ; not intentionally, we
hope ; but responsible, nevertheless.—
He deliberately telegraphed an order to
suppress a loyal assembly of the Union
men of Louisiana, and at once suspend
ed the state Government. The GoVer
nor lies wounded in rebel hands.
Mr. President, there is a Convention
now in session in the city of Philadel
phia. Suppose you suppress it. Give
us u' taste of your impartial justice.—
It is sometimes necessary to contra
dict palpable falsehood when it relates
to the action of public men. Generally,
it is useless, because a lie will not long
deceive an intelligent man ; and to the
ignorant a lie is as apt to seem truth as
The Union Republican, of .Williams
port, (what a misnomer!) in its last' is
sue,undertakes a criticism of the 39th
Congress, in which, after exhausting its
dictionary of hard words and slang, it
denounces the members for having vd
ted to increase their pay 82000 per an
num, and says:
" Let the people of this Congressional district
bear in mind that Stephen P. Wilson, of Tioga
county, Pa., the present member, veted every
time fur all of the above unblushing extravagan
ces, and against the bill equalizing bounties for
Of course Mr. Dunham, or Mr. John
R. Campbell, or Mr. Sallade, or whoev
er may have written the article, knew
very well that Mr. Wilson voted against
the bill to increase the pay of Congress
men. The writer knew, also, that Mr.
Wilson voted for the original bill to
equalize bounties, which provided for
twice as large a bounty to soldiers as
that which passed finally. The writer
also knew that Mr. Wilson did vote
against the "omnibus" bill, which in
'fdluded the Senate amendment to the
bounty bill, for the reason that he could
not vote for it without voting for an in
crease of salary. He certainly did not
vote against it because he was opposed
to giving the soldiers additional bounty,
since he had already voted for a bill giv
ing twice as much bounty to soldiers
We apprehend that no man of com
mon self-respect will deny' the , facts
above stated. We guess neither Messrs:
Dunham, Campbell, nor Sal'lade, will
presume to•deny them over their signa
Then why publish such a falsehood?
There is a paper down Pennsylvania
which shivers like a poplar leaf in view
of the awful consequences of two years
more of Radical rule. It predicts that
two years more of Radical rule will ele
vate the African so much that he will
usurp the positions (so much coveted by
modern Democrats) of Dukes, Earls,
and Barons, and the poor white man
will have to do 'the " paying" to sup
port the jetty Dukes, Earls, and Barons.
We suppose the patrons of that paper
are fools enough to believe and tremble.
If they are not, they have illy-profited
by the teachings of their newspaper.—
A few of them, to our knowledge, still
regard the earth as a monotonous fiat,
swimming in the sea like a huge wood
The talk about paying reminds us
that there are a thousand negroes in the
city of Washington who pay from two
to Afty times as much in the way of
taxes as the editor of the sheet in ques
tion. And we think it safe enough to
say, that these negroes pay double the
amount in taxes paid by all the editors
of Copperhead country sheets in Amer
Show us a man who doesn't steal, who
would not prefer the reputation and.
standing of such men as Fred. Douglass,
Dr. Garnet, and Wm. Wells Brown, to
the repute and standing of Vallaudig

of the Copperheads—Jeff. Davis.
The Legislature which made the ne
gro a voter in the State of New York
was Democratic, and the Governor who
approved the law was a Democrat.
Did that Governor and that Legisla
ture decree that the negro should be the
equal of thewhite man?
Andrew Johnson, in a conversation
with Nfajor Stearns soon after the assas
sinatiOnj of Lincoln, said that he was in
favor of giving the ballot to three class
es ornpgroes, viz : Those who could
read and write, those who had served in
the army with credit, and those who
owned $250 in real estate.

Now will some of the more blatant
Copperhead editors be good enough to
place these facts before their readers?—
We gues'S not.
The " Clymer-Soldier" Convention
'which assembled at Harrisburg on the
Ist instant, proved a serious failure, as
might be supposed. Since Mr. k Clymer
voted dead against men and money to
carry on the war; against instructing
for an increase of the pay of private sol
diers; against a vote of thanks to Gen.
Grant and the officers and men under
his command; against the amendment
of the Constitution permitting soldiers
to vote while absent fighting thebattles
of the country ;—since Mr. Clymer vo
ted against all these measures for the
encouragement and profit of the sol
diers, how could a Clymer-Soldier Con
vention be other than a ridiculous fail
ure? We append the following report
from the Harrisburg Telegraph, premis
ing that its report -is corroborated by
those of the Philadelphia papers:
" It is not our intention to consume any more
room than is barely necessary to expose the utter
and complete, if not really ridiculous failure of
the Clymeritea of Pennsylvania to makapolitical
Capital at the expense of the men whom they re
viled during the war, and have misrepresented
since they crushed the rebellion—and thus ruined
the hopes of the Democratic party of the coun
try. There were not three hundred men delegates
to or in attendance at the Convention. The pro
cessiori which was formed, is marching to and
from the capitol, did not contain over two hun
dred men and boys. The House of Rep esenta
tives will not contain five hundred poop e. At
no time during the session of the Convent, on was
that half full; so that—taking the Clyme ID sol
diers from abroad and the Copperheads of ' anis
burg—this mighty demonstration did not nuhaber,
in all its host, five hundred persons—did not con
tain, in fact, three hundred votes for Mester Cly
mer! We submit these facts to our cotempora
ries of the State. With Berke county within two
hours' ride of Harrisburg, with the Copperhead
counties of the Cumberland valley just over the
river, with York county close at hand, only three
hundred voters could be induced to rally fer Hies.
ter Clymer in a State Soldiers' Naas Convention!
There is abundant evidence to sustain
our theory that the Convention which
yesterday assembled in Philadelphia Is
the Chicago Convention of 1884 come
up to breathe. Of the delegates from
Pennsylvania we see but one who was
not an open sympathizer with rebellion
and rebels during the war. The dele-
gates from this Congressional district—
Phalon Jarrett, of Lock Haven, and
James Gamble; of Lycoming—are fair
samples of the whole crew: • Both of
these men are violent partisans of the
MONTGOMERY BLAIR, who 'cannot
forget that he was driven from the Cab
inet of Mr. Lincobiby the Republican
party, in a speech at the Copperhead
Mass Meeting at Reading, said:
" Should the Radicals carry the elections in
October, theresult would be the establishment of
two Presidents and two Congresses, for the Radi
cal sectional majority would then immediately
impeach President Johnson and turn him out.
while on the other hand the Democratic members
of Congress would unite with the regularly elected
members from the South."
All very nice, Mr. Blair. But if the
radicals want to impeach Andrew John
son, they could as- well have done it any
time within the last, six months as at
any time in the futilie, They had sev
eral more than a two-thirds majority in
Or are, yoli cracking the negro-whip
over the neads of the men who do the
voting? Nobody fears your whip, Mr.
Blair. Nobody wants to impeach A. J.,
Mr. Blair. One President is enough for
this country, Mr. Blair, taking the ave
rage of A. J. as the criterion.
The Clymer Soldiers' (?) Convention
undertook to pass the following pream
ble and resolution :
" WHEREAS, It is asserted in the Republienn
newspapers, that the members of this Convention
were skedaddiers and boontyjompers during the
war; And whereas, in order to disprove this
charge, he it
"Retailed, That the Secretaries of this Con
vention be instructed to prepare a list of dele—
gate's, with their rank, companies and regiments,
while in the army."
After a severe -skirmish, the preamble
,were squelched, and did
not even appear in the official report.—
The members of that Convention could
not afford to bring their records into the
light of day, as a rule.
The quail y of Southern loyalty may
be learned from the late canvass in Ken
tucky for a Clerk of the Court of Ap
peals. At a meeting held at Bowling
Green in the interest of the Copperhead
candidate, Lee, Davis and Johnston
were cheered vociferously, and Grant,
Sherman and Sheridan were as-vocifer
ously hissed. That tells the story of
the returning "prodigal" quite as glib
ly as Petroleum Nasby could do it.
The last advices from New Orleans
show that upward of 100 Union men
were killed, and 300 wounded, in the
late rebel massacre in that city. It ap
pears that the dispatches from Sheridan
were mutilated and changed to favor
the murderers after they reached Wash
ington. What next and more?

Friend Agitator :—Through the medium of
your weekly, I beg leave to address myself to the
following places. viz : Cherry Matta,
Dora's Settlement, Round Top, and others
that have met or may yet meet in Sabbath school
Conventions in this vicinity.
Fellow laborers of the Sabbath school: If it
meets your approval, let meetings be called in as
many places as will join in this enterprise, to
appoint a•committee of one or more, to meet at
the Welsh meeting house, (it being the most cen
tral plane,) on Saturday evening, September lst,
1866, to consult on the propriety of employing
one competent singing teacher, who will teach one
evening per week at each place; and also upon
the propriety of procuring the same books, in
order to be able to join in one harmooions ekair
at out annual celebrations.
The imaginary result would be, beside a real
enjoyment on such eccasiens : The youth of our
land would soon become delighted in what is real
anti beneficial, and thus qualify themselves to be
useful members of society in coming days. hop
ing also that love and harmony would be the pre
vailing elements; for it is evident to all that in
proportion to the growth of these elements, will
vanity and the spirit of sectarianism diminish.—
There are other things which it would be necessa
ry to consult upon. As to the mode of conduct
ing such celebrations; who sheuld be the labor
ers—the ministers of the gospel, or the different
schools, iti their turn 1 I believe the latter, and
the former, like the mariner steering the ship. In
order to carry out these measures, it requires the
•support of heads of families in general. Hoping
the suggestiqn will meet your approval, and ex
cite immediate action, I respectfully submit it to
your consideration, confidently believing it will
prove beneficial to our whole co - immunity.
