A String of "Loyal" Pearls
The Richmond .Enquirer, noting the
fact that the names of Grant and Sher
man were hissed at a political meeting
in Louisville, Ly., significantly and na
turally coupling the names of Lee. and
" Not only in Kentucky, but through
out the Union and the world, Grant
and Sherman will decline in estimation,
while President Johnson and Gen. Lee
will be recognized in all their purity,
goodness and greatness."
The Louisville Journal unwittingly
tells the significant truth when. it says:
"The people of the South would ra
ther not be repregented at all in Con
gress, than represented by such of their
people as could get into that body un
der the operations of the test oath."
The rebel Gen. Forrest said in his
Memphis speech :
"There was no decision in the late
war, and we must now go to the ballot
The Atlanta Era says: " Should the
Administration succeed, the Radical
Congress will be overthrown, its acts
pronounced illegal, and the body itself
liable to dispersion as an illegal and se
ditious assemblage. In either case, it is
not safe to predict th4t the controversy
will be settled without an appeal to
The Mobile Tribune, speaking of the
New Orleans massacre, says : "It was
well done. Even if five times, or five
hundred times the sacrifice of life had
been made to accomplish the purpose, it
would still have been well done."
The New Orleans riot is to be dupli
cated, according to the Nashville (Ten
nessee) Banner, which says: "We are
shown the natural end of the violent
schemers who are plotting for power in
Louisiana. Such will be the end of the
same men, duplicated, here in Tennes
see. They are already hastening their
own destruction, by passing the bounds
not only of patience, but of prudence
and human forbearance. The people of
Tennessee are a sober and peaceably dis
posed class, but it is dangerous to med
dle with them too far."
Pittsburg Soldiers' Convention
The following platform of principles
was adopted by the Soldiers' Conven
tion which recently assembled at Pitts
" Resolved, That the faction of the
present Congress in passing tbepending
constitutional amendment is wise, pru
dent and just. It - clearly defines Amer
ican citizenship, and guarantees all his
rights to every citizen. It places on a
just and equal basis the right of repre
sentation, making the vote of a man in
one State equally potent with the Tote
of another man in any State . It right
eously excludes from places of honor
and trust the chief conspirators, guilti
est•rebels, whose perjured crimes have
drenched the land in fraternal blood.—
It puts into the very frame of our Gov
ernment the inviolability of the nation
al debt, and the nullity forever of all
obligations contracted in support of the
" Resolved, That it is unfortunate for
the country that these propositions have
not been received in the spirit of con
ciliation, clemency and fraternal feel
ing In which they were offered, as they
are the mildest terms ever granted to
" Resolved, That the President, as an
executive officer, has no right to a policy
as against the legislative department of
the tlevernment ; that his attempt to
fasten is scheme of reconstruction up
on the country, was dangerous as it'is
unwise ; his acts in sustaining it have
retarded the restoration of peace and
unity; they have converted conquered
rebels into impudent Claimants to rights
which they have foifeited and placeti_
which they have desecrated. If con
summated, it would render the sacrifice
of the nation useless, the loss of the lives
of our'buried comrades vain, and the
war in which we have so gloriously tri
umphed, what his present friends in
Chicago in 1884 declared to he a failure.
" Resolved, That the right of _the con
queror to legislate for the conquered has
been recognized by thepublic law of all
civilized nations; byte operation of
that law for the eonperva ton of the good
of the whole country, Congress has the
undoubted right to establish measures
for the conduct of the revolted States,
and to pass all acts of legislation that
are necessary for the complete restora
tion of the Union.
" Resolved, That when the President
claims that, by the aid of the army and
navy, he might have made himself Dic
tator, he insulted every soldier and sail
or in the republic. He ought distinctly
to understand that the tried patriots of
this nation can never be uzmxi to over
throw civil liberty nor. popular govern
"Resolved, That the neutrality j aws
should be so amended as to give thes„ 2 ll_
est liberty to the citizen, consistentwl*
the national faith that the great Union
Republican party is pledged to sustain
liberty and equality of rights every
where; and therefore we tender to all
people struggling for freedom our sym
pathy and cordial co-operatOn.
" Resolved, That the Union men of
the South, without distinction of race
or color, are entitled to the gratitude of
every loyal soldier and sailor who served
his country in suppressing the rebell
ion, and that in their present dark hours
of trial, when they are persecuted by
thousands solely because they are now
and have been true to their Govern
ment, we will not prove recreant to our
obligations, but will stand by and pro
tect with our lives, if necessary, those
brave men who remain true to us when
all around are false and faithless.
"Resolved, That in reorganizing the
army, justice to the volunteer officers
and soldiers demands that faithful and
efficient service in the-field ought ever
to have place in the army and navy of
ABOMINABLE.—In the speech of Cly
mer at Uniontown, as reported for the
Pittsburg Post, we find the following
By the assassination of Abraham
Linco 11, Andrew Johnson became Pres
ident of the United States. If, under
his administration, harmony should
come again to the land, who will not see
in the auspicious event the spirit of God
moving over troubled wat e r B , ,,
Are we to understand that the spirit
of which Mr. Clymer so profanely
speaks strengthened the heart and gui
ded the arm of that Democratic hero, J.
Wilkes Booth, and enabled him to bring
about that "auspicious event"? Cer
tain it is, that to Booth Mr. Clymer and
his party are indebted for their present
momentary gleam of hope ; and equal
ly certain it is, that if the party , who
are' now rallying around Andrew John
son shall be successful, the assassin of
Lincoln will be politically canonized as
their greatest benefactor. Such is the
depth to which an alliance with op
pression and treason can sink men, who,
if free, would be respectable. What
are we to make of the language we have
quoted, but the beginning of an effort
to rescue the memory of that assassin
from an immortality of infamy, and
give him a place among the honored
agents of Heaven ?—Gazette.

RUM olifi of frauds to be attempted by
the Coppetjohnsons in the interest of
Mr. Theodore P. Wright, their candi
date for Congress, are prevalent. We
cannot step to ferret out, the facts upori
which thesertnriors are founded. It is
too late to explore in that direction ; so
we embrace this opportunity to warn
Republicans in every election district:
lst—To place active and reliable men
on guard as challengers, early in the
day, with orders to remain there until
the polls close. Any attempt to colo
nize must be resisted to the utmost.
Strangers offering to vote should be
promptly challenged, and questioned
under oath as to their late residence,
their business in the loCality, and as
to the length of their stay. If it ap
pear that any such person is there for
the purpose of voting, with no inten
tion to remain as a resident of the dis
trict, and the Board shall be satisfied
that be is not a bona fide resident, his
''vote should be at once rejected.
2d—Put none but active and reliable
Republicans in charge of the tickets.
See to it that no man is deceived by
tickets upon which the name of Wright
or Clymer has been gummed oxipasted.
Very likely the Copperheads will be on
hand with these gumbacks, and endea
vor to substitute Clymer's name for
GEARY'S on the State ticket, and on
the ticket labeled- " County," they
may try to substitute Wright for Wil
son. Be vigilant from morning till the
polls close. The Republican ticket is
printed at the head of this column, and
any other ticket purporting to be the
regular Repupliean ticket, is a fraud,
and any person circulating it shall be
So, friends, as you would avert the
usurpations threatened by Andrew John
son, be on your guard against possible
fraud at the hands of our unscrupulous
opponents. Look out for lies and lying
handbills. Look out for attempts to de
bauch the unsuspecting and :dissipated
with - whiskey. Be on the alert. Work
as you never worked before, for the eat
cation of the republic luinga - upon our
untied efforts for GEARY and Wu.sas
Look to your polling lists, Republi
cans. If any man living far from the
polls shall not have voted by 3 o'clock,
send for him at once. Let no Republi

while Mr. Wilson voted against it.

you ever will be - privileged to east, in
our candid judgment.
Think of it: Andrew Johnson gays
in so many words that the present Con
gress is illegal—is not the Congress of
the United States, but of only 'twenty
If it be an illegal Congress, then its
every act has been illegal. Because . le
gality cannot issue out of illegality.
If the present Congress be illegal,
then every Congress which sat during
the war was illegal;, for only a portion
of the States were represented in the
thirty-seventh and thirty-eighth Con
It follows, therefore, that if these Con
gresses were illegal, their acts were ille
gal, and the laws passed by them are
null and void.
So, if Andrew Johnson be correct,
there is not a dollar of Government pa
per afloat, whether it be greenback,
bond, interest-bearing note, or national
bank paper, which is worth one penny.
For these evidences of debt were crea
ted by law, and the laws creating them
were enacted by the 37th and 38th Con
Now if these Congresses were only
"assumed" Congresses, they were ille
gal; if they were illegal, their acts were
illegal and without force or effect; and
if their acts are null, then there is noth-
Mg more certain than that rebel judges
and rebel officials will so declare them,
If given an opportunity to do so.
This would involve the repudiation of
the Union debt incurred to put down
treason. This, In its turn, would in
volve the destruction of the credit of
the nation. And with the death of na
tional credit, universal and wide-spread
ruin would come to this country.
These are the dangers - ahead. These
are the rocks to be given a wide berth.
Stephen F. Wilson, and his fellow
candidates on the Republican ticket,
believe that every Congress which has
existed during the rebellion, or since the
rebel surrender, has been strictly legiti
mate, and the acts of each legal. Mr.
Wilson voted for the amendment to the
Constitution which declares that the
debt of the nation shall be paid, dollar
for dollar, and that no future Congress
shall assume to pay the rebel debt, or
vote compensation to former owners of
slaves now free.
Make the 40th Congress as earnestly
and radically Republican as the present
Congress, and there ryill be no more talk
about the illegality of a Congress com
posed of loyal men. Andrew Johnson
must be taught, and jthe people must
teach him, that he is not competent to
impeach the Congress of the U. States.
The Constitution places the Congress
above the President. The President
must keep his place. The people are to
define his function in the Government
A vote for S. F. Wilson is a vote for
the inviolability of the national debt,
and a vote for the repudiation of all
claims of rebels upon the Government
for debts incurred in the attempt to de
stroy the nation ; it Is also a vote against
compensating slaveholders for their
In these days it behooves the people
to put men of tried courage and truth
in high places. Where would Pennsyl
vania have been, had not .A.ndie Curtin
been elected in 1880, and in 1888?
Thibk of this and remember : That
Pliester Clymer sympathizes with the
rebels; that he gave them aid and com
fort in the period of war; and then re
member that Gen. Geary was a-field at
the head of his division, fighting his
country's battles, for more than four

HENRY J. ALAYmoND, in conjunction
with the rebel press in the South, is
hinting at an usurpation by the Presi
dent, to take place in December. It is
no more nor less than this: The as
sum ed-to-b e members of Congress Irmo
the rebel States and the COpperhead
members from the North will meet to
gether, and the President will recog
nize them as the legitimate Congress.
Under these circumstances the people
of Tioga county would do well to ask
Theodore Wright which Congress he is
running for—the Congress of the peo,
pie, or that which may possibly be cre,
ated by one man, Andrew Johnson.
We say to the people what will not be
gainsayed, we guess: That if the peo
ple of Pennsylvania do as the people of
Vermont and Maine have just done,
Andrew Johnson will not think of re
cognizing a Congress of unrepentant
rebels and sneaking Copperheads.
Every man to his post. Let the free
men of Tioga speak loud enough to
shake the windows in the White House,
and teach Andrew Johnson that they,
at least, will countenance no usurpa
tions.. Congress must make the laws,
not any one man. Congress will fix the
terms of reconstrucrou, not the Presi
dent. Usurpers cannot live peaceably
in the United State's.
The President's policy is producing
its legitimate fruits in Texas. One coun
ty—Washington—is lu a state of insur
rection, and the old rebels—repentaut
and pardoned, you know—are under
arms again: Gen. Sheridan has left N.
Orleans for the seat of war.
Had Andrew Johnson held a taut rein
upon the rebels, there would not have
been a single attempt at revolt. The
villains regard Johnson as their cham
pion, and presume to defy the U. States
Republicans, we go to the, polls next
Tuesday for the express purpose of in
structing Andrew Johnson• If we roll
up our biggest majority for Geary and
8. F. Wilson, the President will find
himself instructed, and the worst will
Hurra for Oregon! Her Legislature
has adopted the_constitutional amend

of reconstruction. Six States have now
adopted the amendment, and if we mis
take not every Northern and West"ern
State will have adopted it before the 4th
of March 1867.
The Congressional Globe says that
Congress voted to give the white soldier
$lOO more bounty than to the negro sol

The Copperheads say that Congress
voted . to give the negros3oo bounty, and
only $lOO to the white soldier.
Now which lies?
Every one who says that Congress vo
ted more bounty to the negro than to
the white soldier, wilfully lies. The
negro does not get a dollar under the
additional bounty act.
We have never seen a word of denun
ciation of the New Orleans massacre in
a Copperjohnson newspaper.
We have never seen a word of denun
ciation of the atrocious treatment of
Union prisoners of war by the rebels at
Lndersonville, in a Copperjohuson

as a butcher, Sherman, as an incendia

And Just now these vile sheets are
raging over the ill-treatment of Andrew

That's what's the matter.
Republicans ought to feel obliged to
the Copperhead papers of this district
for their"publication of the record of S.
F. Wilson. Purified of the muddy com
ments which the divine Orvis has ap
pended, the record is one which will
commend Wilson to every loyal man.
But for the fact that we have msde often
allusion-to his record In Congress, we
would compile this one published by
Orvis, without hismistifying comments.
MT. THEODORE WRIGHT has written
a letter endorsing President Johnson.—
We are glad of it, and presume Mr.
Johnson feels better. If a copy of the

" This is the plain, unvarnished truth.
In view of it, we want you to explain
why you steadily refused, in your pine
in the Senate, to vote men and money
