ever the President scz. but I mildly pro
tested. I owe a duty to the paity, and
I 11m determined to do it.
'Most High,' sez I, 'a seltin hen which

Lincoln's ollice-huldeis are scttin-hens.
They don't like yoo nor y.oor policy, but
while they are on their nests will keep
modcritly quiet. Cut off their heads
and they will spurt their blood in yoor

Calkerliition uioderilly, there are at least

him ez tho Chect Magistrate uv the

over tho party, and tho President got
out uv it ez soon ez possible. Bein

MR. JOHNSON IN HISTORY.
Mr Johnson and Mr. Johnson's friends
urge in favor of tho inconsistencies and
caprices ot that gentlemen's course
known as his policy, that bo is simply
administering Mr. Lincoln's estate ot
patriotism and stalemanship. The do
ts nso is urged with great unction, espo
chilly by the men who systematically
abused Mr. Lincoln for his policy and as
systematically praiso Mr. Johnson for
adopting and following it. It is dillieult
for reasonable men ' to understand why
what was foolish, base, tr weak in Mr
Lincoln should bo wise, noble, and euer-
getio in Mr. Johnson. No satisfactory
explanation of this political alchemy has
yet bean given, and it has the appear
ance rather ot a slander upon Mr. Lin
coln than a defenso of Mr. Johnson.
Mr. Johnson's policy in this respect is
not without fr-irikiiigp irnllol in history.
After Ciuar's assassination the profligate
Mark Antony succeeded by tho most
arrant demagoguisin in controlling the
Government. He accomplished this by
promises as unequivocal and apparently
unselfish as thoso of Mr. Johnson, and
by equally unscrupulous disregard and
violation of them. Tho language ot the
historian describing his usurpation, his
ambition and his treacheiy to the lie
public, under tho specious pretenso of
carrying out Lis predecessor's policy, is.i
graphic pioturo of tho present political
career of Andrew Johnson.
'It was not till tho first of Juno that
Antoniiis had changed his conduct.
From that limo all hia actions were in
strong contrast with the policy which he
bad already stamp'.d as true loyalty.
He ceased to consult iho Senate, and
carried his measures through tho coinilia
oftho li'ibes. IIo recalled whom he
would from banishment, made what laws
he pleased, appointed his own creatures
to place and ollloe, and pleaded thu ill
,of tho dead Ciear tar every act of his
selfish ar.d voi ul policy.'
It would bu dillieult to describe more
accurately the American dictator, who
settled great national questions in accor
dance with his individual opinion, placed
Ins actions in stroi g contrast with Ih
policy which he had already stamped as
true loyalty, ceased to consult tho Senate,
and manages public aliairs throiiL'h bis
own reconstructed Slate Governments,
'pardons whom ho chooses, appoints his
own crealiitcs to place and dike, and
deads the purposes of tlio dead Lincoln
for every act . ot his selfish and venal

Ifany loyal man is at a loss to know
how to voto us between Geaiy and Cly

to ask whioh of the two men the tiure

want to see successful, Threo years ago
when the war was raging, and when
Andrew G. Cuilin and George W.
Woodward were before the people of
Pennsylvania as opposing candidates for
Governor, we proposed tlio raiuo lest by
which Union men could at once ascertain
what was their duty, and now that trea
son would laitr accomplish in thu halls
of legislation what it lost 011 tho field, it
is uonu thu less infallible That the
b dlled traitors nil desire the election of
lh i.-ter Clyuici' is so plain that no one
need bu mistaken. The Il.irri.sbtug Tel
'jniph lately re.x-ived a Mississippi paper
containing iho following first rate notice
of Mr. Clvmur, which of course ought to
commend him strortgly to his followers.
'The South will never forgot 1 leister

THE RISE IN REBEL BONDS.
The Chailseton (S C.) Courier of the
3d inalant slates that tho cablo telegram
announcing that thu Philadelphia Con
vention had caused a rise in Uobol bonds
in London has been fully confirmed by
a private dispatch sent to that pnper by
tho agent of thu Associated I'iosh.- As
this comes fiom undoubted authority, it
may well to examine the chances -which
there are that thoso bonds will ever be
paid'ciiher wholly or in part. The real
aim ur.t of lhe liebel debl iH not less
than 2.500.000.000, and the holders of
this amount ot worthless paper coul,
well afl'ird to give lhe stini of $500,000,
00ft to secure its payment t fifty cents
011 a dollar, and make a haiidsoine profit
at that. Ill order to do this,
it is only necessary to secure the
next President and a majority in the
two Houses of Congress. If President
Johnson succeeds in his scheme of ad
mitting the Kcbe! States inlo Congress
without their making nny security
against tlio payment ot this debt, it needs
no prophet to foretell its assumption by
a Congress constituted ns that will bo.
In case the Constitutional amendment
is defeated, it requires only twenty-two
Senators nud filty eight IJcprcsentatives,
witli ti e additional force which thu ten
non-represented States will havo after
tho text census, aided by iho Copper
head Btrength of tho North, and the
sympathizing ineinbi is from Delaware,
Maryland, Kentucky and Missouri to
got a Congressional 'majority, which
will saddle thu whole or a part of this
debt on Iho United States. This thing
la not so improbable as ninny niny im
agine. When lexas was annexed to
tho United States it was expiessly Blipiii
luted that she should pay her own debt,
but in less than six years that debt was
nssiimed by tho United 'Slates on the tie
maud of lhu united South, and Texas
scrip, which was sold for ton cents on

On Saturday last Geu. John A. to

tory remarks, ho -aid ho reraemberea
that it -was Galena that had given 0 the
country that distinguished soldier and
patriot; General U.S. Grant, and tlmt
this was his home, and it was to bis
friends and neighbors ho now spoke

field j he expected to' fight under it in
civil life. He could say ho kuew Gen
eral Grant well and intimately, and he
knew all his hopes and sympathies were1
witli the great loyal masses of the na
tion, w ho by their valor and blood had
saved thj country. Long continued
applause. Whatever efforts might b
made lo have it appear that ho was in
sympathy with Copperheads' and rebel
in their efforts to turn tho GovernmerVt
over to traitors, North and South', ;'h
wished to Bay to the people hero and!
everywhere that Gen. Grant was entitled

shown unmistakably that ho was right.'
A voice, "We all know it." He would'
say this to relieve the counlry, that he

all who know General Grant's opinions,
know, that he was openly for the ConstU'

that, but he knew of his own knowl
edge that ho was earnestly for the Civil 1
Bights Bill, and had used all his influx,

Great cheering He would say fur-)

concerned, the army would be used fdfl
every proper extent to protect the Union t
men ot the South against the oppression ,
of rebels. Cheers. All tho signs o t
tho times indicated that Johnson was tp

Coppeihead and rebel party, p. In that 1
view it was important do' destroy the;
confidence whioh the Union party , had
in Grant. That great soldier is the idol1
ot tho Union party and the loyal men of,

they delighted to honor. . The plan, of ,

was to destroy General Grant's chances,,

of turning thu Government over to trai,

will in .intain such a position by his con-'

GRANT'S OPINION OF CLYMERe '
White Gun. Grant was in Philadel
phin a Johnsonite told hint that Clymer t
would got tho larger part of the soldier
vote. Tho Gen. replied r "I think you -
will bo mistaken in that. Clymer is a
Coppeihead, and the soldier who votes 1
for him, will disgraco himself and the
flag ho tought uuder." ,
