Ilia Opinion of Southern ;Treatment of
A distinguised citizen of St-Louis, a
professional gentleman of reliable judg
ment, .has just returned from. Wasit
ington, where he had an 'introduction
to the President elect, and very pleas
antly relates characteristics of the in
terview that go far to exhibit/ the clear
thought,and the independent judgment
of the man whom the people honor.
After a cordial greeting he offered
us seats, and in tic very easy, familiar
way, entered into conversation.. In a
few moments Senator— was an
nounced, with Judge---,-, of Louisiana.
General,' said the Senator, Judge
wishes to see you a few moments
and consult with you in regard 'to the
improvement of the levees of the low
er - Mississippi. We wish the , United
States Government to endorse and thus
guarantee the, bonds of the State of
Louisiana for the restoration and im-
Provenient of the levees.'
hope the Government will not do
it,' the General replied with a quick,
positive utterance that was not only
decisive And final on that subject, but
al most,stunn ing.
' But, General,' urged the Senator,
' we only wish the United States.to en
dorse the• bonds, so that we can sell
them without a ruinous discount, giv 7
'lug the United . States ample security
for the entire amount, so that it would
be impossible for the , Government to
lose a cent in any emergency.'
Again Grant quickly interrupted : I
never ,knew a Government to become
responsible for any atinjunt that it did
not , ultimately have to pay. You now
want the) endorsement of the bonds.—
If that is given, you will soon want to
legislate-for the payment of the'bonds.'
' General,' said the Senator, you are
too hard on us.'
While we are dis ussiug on all sides'
said Grant, ' how the national debt is to
he paid, I shall opp e any increase of
the national obliations.' • . '
'lt is impossible to cultivate our
lands,' interposed the Senator. The
levees are absolutely necessary.'
.I Rupw all about the levees,' he an
swered. , ' I served in that country
When a young Man, and I had &sue
thing to do myself with the brealling
of those levees.' , ,
'But,' said the Judge, ' millions of
acres of the best land in the world' are
subject to overflow.'
' Let them overflow, anti let them
stay, under water,' said Grant,'' until
their owners are willing that Northern
men and aN'orthern capital should come
in and protect and improve them.—
Northern men with ample capital are
ready to make a garden of your State,
and youi won't let them do it. Your
large landhOlders aro as hostile to the
'United States Government to-day as
they have -ever been; and if the Gov
erm - lent should rebuild their levees it
,d not change then fa particle. 1
kno v no way the Government could
haV ; adopted for the rebuilding-of the
lev i e s but to have confiscated the lands
of i lt iose engaged in the rebellion, and
use the proceeds to restore the country.
As that was not done, nothing remains:
but to set your negroes to work, and in
vite in and welcome Northern yaen.'
' General,' said' the Judge,
grog won't work.'
' Won't work' !' grant quietly replied
they'll work if you'll pay them for it.'
'Am I-not right?' he added. 'ls
there not such a hostility to Northern
nice that it amounts in most seetions of
the State to a practical exclusion of
them from the agricultural interests of
the country ? Is there not an unwill
ingness to diVide up the lands and sell
in small parcels to those who might im
migrate; and is there not a general
tendinicy to secure the services of the
negrk without prompt and adequate
' I must say,' Said the Judge, ' that
there. is more or less of trttth in all
Then,' said Grant, ' I t1,:, , k you will
have to build your own levees, tr wait
under water until you are willing men
should come in who will build them.'
The above, though not all that was
said, gives the substance and spirit of
the conversation. It shows much more
plainly than any statement I have seen
precisely where the President-elect now
stands with reference to the South.
This conversation shows that what
ever he may hereaftef do, he new
stands by his ' st record. lie means
that a citizen of the United States shall
be recognized a such, and secured and
protected in hill rights and privileges in
every State ; tl at the freedom of the
freedman shal be recognized and his
labor con/pens ted ; that the national
obligations, shall not be increased; and
that the promoters of the late war at
the South shall not be aided by the
Government in repairing the damages
occasioned by the war.—St. Louis Dem

ON. ABA PACKER.—A. large num
ber of - Democrats in the northern part
of the State have declared their pref
erence for the Hon. Asa Packer as the
. Gubernatorial candidate. The Venan
go Spectator, a staunch Democratic pa
per, says : '
`Some of the papers that worship
mammon are talking about Asa Pack
er for Governor. Wouldn't It be bet
ter to hold him in reserve to receive the
vote of Pennsylvania in succeeding
Presidential elections? It worked so
beautiful last July in the New York
convention that the delegates who origi
nated that brilliant stroke of policy will
never be willing. to vote for anybody
else. Let 'us' -hold Air. Packer In re
serve, and get out' a pampnlet. .
-The Lockhaven Democrat, a regular
Copperhead sheet, says :
We plead guilty, however, to a strong
disbelief in the ability of the Democ
racy of oPennsylvania to elect him, or
any othereandidrte belonging to what,
with all due deference, we shall term as
the fossilized school. The miserable,
degrading and disgraceful conduct of
the Pennsylvania delegation at New
York, controlled as its action was by
that .class of politicians, together with
the lamentable results of the campaign
in this State last fall,,the legitimate re
„suit of the bungling inefficiency not to
say stupidity displayed in the conven
tion of the Fourth of July, convince us
that a certain class of politicians—in
Pennsylvania4tt least—have had their
day. Th approaching canvass will af
ford a spi ndid Opportunity for them to
maintain a mastetly, inactivity. We

By the Report of the Auditor Oen

we learn that the total amount of cir

$3,219,668.00. The amount outstanding"
Jan. 1, 1869, was $96,86.00. These in

President qohnson I (this is the last

the folly of the Copperhead editors who
speak of these. as innocent persons, ex
seeds belief. The editor who takes such
ground must be onel of three things:
Ignorant, a liar, or an assassin in spirit.
If any one of the • persons 'hung, next
to Booth, was guilty of Linceln's death,
it was Mrs. Suratt. Still; it is well
enough for the party of assassination to
defend its tools.
The adventurers who make a busi
ness of writing froin HArrisburg to
county papers, are playing a beautiful
game. They are, about now, attacking
Gov. Geary in a mean, underhanded,
cowardly, sneaking way, by suggesting
doubts of his ability to make the re
nomination. phis "Bureau of corre
spondence" opines thatllMr. Ketcham
stands a better chance than Gov. Geary.
Why not come squarely out and show
the operation of these newspapers pup
pets in the background. The attack
upon Gen. Geary is made by the Curtin
faction. Geary has been over two
years in office and has stolen nothing.
Can such a man be tolerated in Harris
burg? Are we to return to his present
position a man who not only (loth not,
steal for himself, but refuses to let Ilia
friends steal on the sly ? Ought not,
Geary to have grown rich himself, and
ought not his numerous friends to
grown rich, also ? " Can these things
be and not excite our special
THE NATIONAL PERIL
We do not envy' the man who can
read time report of the Congressional
Committee to investigate the alleged
frauds in the New York election - and_
feel no throes of alarm for the security
of the republic.
By far the blackest record of crime
and scoundrelism that was ever revealed
to the public is revealed by that report.
It is now • positively known that SIX
TY-SIX THOUSAND THREE HUN
DRED\ AND FORTY THREE fraud
ulent naturalization papers were issued
Ity the Supreme and Superior Courts Of
New York city alone, and that these
'papers were voted on is pretty well
ascertained. These papers were used
in all the large cities, but more espec
ially in the city of New York and in
The fees for these fraudulent ers
were paid by. the Tammany Hall C m
mittee ; and FORTY THOUSAN of
these papers were -furnished _ the
printer to that Committee. The \ l 4 . A
sses. swore that these papers were
aattered broadcast over the city, and
1 rge packages were sent into the inte
ror towns and cities. It was also
roved that these papers were deliv
ered to .liens, in other counties, who
never appeared in court at all, as the
law requires, and never took the oath of
allegiance. 'Witnesses testified that
certificates of naturalization were issued
to the fictitious names in almost num
berless instances, and these were given
to " repeaters," and voted upon many
times by the same persons. Proof was
abundant of the issuing of papers with
out proof made to the Court, and with
out any order of Court. Judge Bar
nard, of the Supreme Court, the great
est scoundrel in the State of New York
it is said, and we believe without effort,
refused to submit the records of natur=
alization in his CoUrt to the inspection
of the Committee. The Clerk or that
Court, however, swore that papers with
fictitious names had been granted there
in, on forged signatures of app icants
The Committee further state that
they were constantly hindered rin the
discharge of their duty. Veatious
delays, technical objections, que.4tions
of jurisdiction, all were resorted to by
the Copperhead officials to obstruct and
annoy the Committee.
The_ Committee report further that
the vote of the State was largely in ex
cess of the number; of legal voters; that
in no 'instance were they able to trace
the work of issuing fraudulent natural
ization papers to a Ttepublican court or
County. This, of, course. ; for but a
small percentage of the Republican
vote is upon naturalization papers The
fact that the counting of the votes in
New York city, was delayed until cer
tain portions of tho State were heard
from, is as well known as any fact un
disputed, Mayor Hall, the author of
the secret Circular calling for the delay
in announcing the result in the city,
was called as a witness, and failed to
deny the charge that that circular was
intended to keep the result in the State
In the hands of the ballot-box stuffers.
It seems that some of the " repeaters"
voted as many as fkirty times each, and
all from two to 'forty times. It would
seem pretty elday, then, that not less
than SEVENTY 110USAND fraudulent
votes were cast iu New York State last
November, all for Seymour, and Hoff
—What follows, then ?
This: That the electoral vote.i)f New
York £tate was cast for Grant And Col
fax,, and that John • T.,Hoffinan is no-,
more Governor of that State by right,
than are we. And it ought to follow—
As VVo it must—that Mr. Hoff
man must be unseated and John A.
Griswold put where the honest majority
of the people placed him.
Will this be done?
Why not? How k ean the offiCials hope
to preserve the integrity of the govern
ment unless such villainy be punished?
How long can you depend upon the
well-intentioned masses to flock to the
polls, while fraud is able to defeat the
outspoken wilt ofthe people?
But mark the fact that these frauds,
in every ease, inure to the benefit of
the Democratic party. Mark, also, the
fact that every' effort to unearth such
frajlds is resisted by Democratic offic
ials. When such thorough-bred scoun
drels as Judges Barnard and McCann
are permitted to sit upon the , Bench of
the Superior and Supreme COurts of the
great State of New York, can the peo
ple rightl' expect an honest adminis-!
tration of public affairs? Will the
Legislature of that State permit such'
flagrant outragesupon the ballot and
suffer the_ authoys thereof to go free of
Pennsylvania may wink at the
crimes of Senator Wallace in the same
direction, after this. The coffee-boil
ing Democracy may take heart In view
of the deeper infamy of Barnard & Mc-
Cunn. The "repeaters" whp averaged
twenty votes each in Philadelphia, last
' fall, ale fairly beaten by their Demo
crati brethren of New York city. Af
ter tis may we not expect a few shots
from the puppy-dogs of that party at
the "dod and Morality" Republicans?
It is not about time for some of the fel
lows who , have . not expiated their
crimes in Sing-Sing and Moyamensing
to indulge a few sneers at common de
cency?. A trifle of indignation at the
tyranny of law and' the despotism of
order, manifested by the apologists for
such frauds, could not fail of, attracting
the attention and winning the admire
tiontrall rightminded_ men. The lof
ty scorn with which these blacklegs
and thimble-riggers, these pimps and
kn.'aves of the Democratic fold, regard
those impoverished souls who hold that
man is capable of higher things than
i theft and murder, is always interesting,
1 if not instructive.
However, the punishment of these
criminals is not for courts or legisla
tures. It is for the honest and honor
able masses to inflict the penalties for
such crimes against free government.—
All men with manly impulses and pat
riotic resolves must stand abut and op
posed to such a party. It was the-party
of treason during the hour of national
peril; and it is now the party of perjury,
forgery, and fraud. Every step toward
its success is 0, long stride toward de
scl uetion, every blow
infliotad turvil its
leaders is a manly blow for the perpe
tuity of free institutions. Let us pledge
our efforts anew to the work of the de
struction of this felon party.
Take the doctrine of State Rights out
of the Democratic creed and the occu
pation of that party would be gone.—
Few of the . leaders of the party com
prehend the doctrine of State Rights in
all its bearings ; fewer, comprehending,
aro bold enough to declare the whole
counsel of that school of politicians.,
Of the latter, Mr. Garvin, 'of the Mer
cer Press, deserves a front seat. He is
a States' Rights advocate of the Jeffer
son School, accepting the entire result
of the teaching. He sees in the war of
the rebellion only a heroic strugggle, on
the part of the South, to preserve the
rightS of the Southern States under the
Constitution ; and on the part of the
North only a forcible and despotic vio
lation of the Constitution.
We have kvery great respect for Mr.
Garvin, as a straightforward, fearless
politician. Yet we presume that he
cannot rally Much of a party in the
North. His party—the Dernooratic
party—,is not ready t face the enlight
ened• American people with •
such a doc
trine. Mr. Garvin complains that the
Constitution ; by the amending power
therein contained, is made the instill
nent of its own destruction. Do we
understand this to involve an attack
upon that portion of the Constitution
which provides for its amendment? If
so, then we arc called upon to defend
what ought to be impregnable—the
right of the people to alter, or abolish,
the government under which they live.
The Constitution is just the aggregate
of the wisdom of its framers, and no
more. Unless somebody will take the
ground that the wisdom of the last
century fills the measure of human
wisdom for all time, there is not much
to say. We had supposed, and still sup
pose, that the right to amend the
garlic law is as clear as the rightto
alter, amend, or repeal a statute ; greater
care and circumspection being duo to
an exercise of the former than to the
latter, and difibringalone in that respect.
Above Constitutions stand their fra
mers; and above the framers rules the
Almighty. The ages bring change;
and with change of the condition of the
people conies the .necessity of a change
in organic forms of law. Above State
Rights, above all civil rights, is ithe
right to alter and amend the Consiltu-
We sympathize with, and partake of
the astonishment of Mr. Ham, of the
Honesdale Herald, at the assertion of a
Milford paper that C. B. Cotter, Esq.,
" had backslidden into the slough of
Radicalism." We also confess to a
greater measure of surprise that Mr.
Cotter shuld, from his home in Sagi
naw City, Michigan, think it necessary
to write a denial that he has over been
received into the republican ranks. No
matt who ever knew Mr. Cotter believes
him capable of such an overturn ; and
we believe him when he says that he
voted for Seymour & Blair last fall.
We are willing to go further and say,
that if the Democracy had put up Jeff
Davis for President Mr. Cotter would
would cheerfully have voted, for that , 1
suffering martyr of misfortune.
We hope the Legislature will decis
ively prohibit the carrying of concealed
weapons, under severe penalties, before
It adjourns. Keep right on, gentlemen.
The practice is barbarous in the ex
treme, has become alearful abuse, and
will become worse than that, if not
abandoned. In communities where
everyman of repute teaches obedience
to law by his example there can_ be no
use for such weaponi; and - the - man
who habitually carries them in such a
community is a coward, pure and sim
ple. He dare not trust to good behavior
and the weapons of nature.. That is
the rankest cowardice of all. Not less
than a hundred men and boys have'
been killed and wounded by their own
weapons during the last twelve months.,
Down with the silly practice.
