From the Herald
For a lonp while r;.t Brother lieechrr and
Heu. Butler have been travelling the came xond.
Butler joined Beeeher at the beplnuing of the
late war, anri they both talked netrro, and
walked along together. Durini: the war it was
interetinR to observe Ihe clillerent deportments
of the two pilprinis. Beeeher, who hud thrown
away his Sharp's ritle, of Kansas fame, passed
alotigr with bin hand? folded, his lips moving in
prayer, and his eyes turned devoutly upward.
Of course he made many stumbles, but still he
kept steadtubtly upon his way, looking neither
to the right hand nor to the left, while above
Jiltu hovered a bright angel, leading and guid
ing him. Butler, however, although upon the
unue roud as Beeeher. met with many more
auveuteres. As he trotted on he swore at
'very obstacle, while Beeeher prayed. Then,
loo. he would switch off the track to insult
wonn'u, and rob adjacent boue of pianos and
silver spoons and Bermuda Hundred wine. At
one time be was lost in u ditch, called the Dutch
iap canal; at another be was bottled up, like
the Imp in the "Arabian Nlelits:" and ut an
other he declared that Fort Fisher could not be
captured when (ieneral Terry hid already taken
it. A mason at Lowell crave him an annoying
check-, aud at Big Bethel he came out ut ti.e
little end of the horn. Always bobbing about,
talking fleht but never show ing it, with an eye
to the spoils instead of the enemy, and more
jeady to storm a bank vault than a fort, Butler
trusted lor protection, not to Beechpr's angel,
"but to a well-knuwn cuaracter who Uresses in
black, loves brimstone, has a forked tail, and is
3opularly supposed to tuke cure of his own.
The people wondered to nee these singularly
consorted pilgrims travelling together, the one
till prayer and the other all viciousnenH. Still
at was evident that there was some sort of a
companionsnip between them at this period;
for ever and unou they would link arms at uu
election and rejoice tocether over a political
fsuccess. teechei's thoughts were too much
upon heavenly thincs for uim to scrutinize
Butler's conduct wry clocly, and perhaps he
imagined that the hero at Bis' Bethel must be
si great warrior because he brngnod and blus
tered so much, and so imperatively insisted
upon moie blond. Beecher'n eyes, being
turned piously upwards, could not observe the
pnoons sticking out of Butler's pockets, nor
the quantity of oilier people's furniture which
3te had Hra'pped, like John Brown's knnpsaek,
upon his back. Sou happened that about two
years ago, when these two pilgrims rested for
awhile at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, upon the
occasion of a public reception given to Butler
?y the loyal leaguers oi this city, Beeeher made
u speech, in the course of which he nominated
Butler for President. Butler made a speech
also, aud pretended to be very patriotic and
conservative, very anxious lor tho restoration
of tho Union and the return of the rebellious
Southerners to their alleciance. The pilarims
were in such happy harmony that everybody
was delighted, and when ttiey started oil once
jnore, the ub qnitous Wetmore strewed their
path with bouquets of flowers, and tlw Herald
magnanimously gave them its benediction,
alter atceitaiuing that no spoons were missing
at the hotel.
But it came to pass that as these pilgrims
Journeyed on their wav thy learned tuat Grant,
Fairagut, Sherman, Sheridan, Thomas, aud our
brave" soldiers and sailors had suppressed tho
licliellion, and soon afterwards they arrived at
a point where two roads met. That to the neht
liad a linger post-upon which were the words
J'eace, Restoration, Reunion, Happiness, Pros
perity, and Power, and it seemed to lead upward
to sublime and glowinu heights of national
?lory. That to the left had a Anger-post very
dillerently inscribed, for upon it were the wjrds
Civil War, Disunion, Repudiation, Misery, Woo,
and Anarchy, and it pointed grimly downward
to dark aud dismal depths of wretchedness and
hhuine. Beether's good angel led him by the
right road, but Butler, alter considering that
there were no chances for silver spoons and other
plunder along that route, deliberately marched
to the left, thus parting company witiihis lellow
pilgrim. The wise, patriotic, Christian, audstates
juanlike letter ot Brother Beeciier which we
published on Sunday shows that he has selected
the true course, and that it agrees with hiai,
and all good men will cheer him on. The
blood and thunder speech ot Ben. Butler, which
we published last week, is an evidence that he
has become more demoralized than ever; tur he
now assorts that the only right remaining to
the Southern people U the right to be hanged,
and talks about getting up a rebellion at the
Worth to make a raid upon our valuables as he
did upon those ol the South. In vain will poor
llreeley, aud twadaliug Tilton, and the ra ileal
Trustees of Plymouto Chinch attempt to bully
Brother Beeeher into goiug back to the cross
roads and taking the other turn with Butter.
It is too late tor him to cast in his lot with
Tuad. Stevens and Satan. Butler may rant and
rave, and padole his canoe upon the lake ot tire
and brimstone, but B-echer has chosen that
good part which shall never be taken away
The Negro-Sufl'rnsri C on vcut lou nt Phila
from the World.
The present gathering at Philadelphia is a
narody on the Groat Union Convention held in
that city last month. It bears the same kind
ot resemblance to it that Morraonism
does to Christianity. The great Union
reinvention was called for the purpose of
giving to the Southern States the jut
recognition which is denied to them by
Congress. I. was a great success; every part of
the Houth being represented by delegates of
standing, who enjoy the contidenco of nineteen
twentieths of the citizens of their several locall
tips. In that Convention, so composed, the
doctrine of secession was renounced and abjured
the downfall, death, and burial of slavery was
admitted; the Federal debt was indorsed and
tho Confederate debt repudiated; and the Union
under the Constitution was declared perpetual.
All these items, summed up, amount to this
that the South abandons all the. objects tor
which it took up arma, and accepts all the legi
timate consequences of its defeat.
The synod of "black spirits and white, blue
spirits aud grey," which began its session in
Philadelphia ou Monday, dubs rteell a convention
of Southern loyalist. But, in truth, it is made
no of men a mujority of whom are neither Soutu
ern nor loyal. Even the small portion of these
men who have a Southern domicile are without
constituencies, except in scattered localities;
and in no locality do those who sympathize,
w ith them lorm a tenth pari of the quaUded
AtPr Most of the delegates are self-appointed,
...,,i.n nnhndv but therosolves. It is
i..ri t.call such men as Jack Hamilton, of
Texas, a delegate, when nobody in Texas ever
....hi,..n airniitor anv credentials. The
self-appointed Governor Brownlow. and the Belt
appointed Fletcher aud Waynard, makeup, with
Jack Hamilton, the magnates ot this body from
tho South. The Northern "delegates" are just
ole. Those from New
of Governor Ward:
those from Pennsylvania are deputed by Gov
n,n ,irrin most of those from New York by
Governor PeuHMi. It is generally supposed that
t,. oniiBtii.nntita of such a boJv are lar more
-....Tnerous than the delegates: but In this Phila-
,i..i.,.iu ir:,ir. three men. Governors Ward
Curtiu, and Fenfon, are represented by several
Lmuiron so-called delegates. This assembly
was called as ft Southern Convention to meet on
Northern noil; but 11 only 8outherner had
attended, it would bave been a pitiful Or.zle.
Northern "delegates" have been extemoorized
and poured in to give it a sham respectability
ai.d redeem it frara ridicule.
The men composing this Convention are not
loyal, because they are conspirators azainst the
Constitution and against the restoration of the
Union. Their plattoira will be, in substance,
certain thing proposed by the Rump Congress
as amendments to toe Constitution, Com bin el
with a declaration that the Union shall not be
restored until these proposed amendments are
Hdopted. This amounts to a declaration that
the Union shall never be restored on the basis
ot the Constitution as it Is; and jet the Consti
tution as it Is i the sole warrant of Congress tor
pcrlormlng any act; the sole warrant for the
assembling ot any such bodv as Cougtess. Men
who meet to publish their determination that
the Constitution shall not be ejecutd unless it
is changed, virtually declare that their ou n will,
and not the Constitution, shall be accepted as
the Mipieme law ot the laud. To call such men
"loyal ' is an abuse 01 language, iiiey are con
spirators against the Constitution; refusing to
obey it us it stands, and plotting to make it a
dillerent thing Ironi vihat it is.
In the gieat Union Convention at Philadel
phia, last month, the South accepted the Con
stitution and protessed tneir will'ngness to
yield It full and strict obedience. The ben 1 of
conspirators now assembled repudiate the Con
stitution, and insist on having BOincthiu? ditfer
ent. What title have tney to insist that the
Constitution shall not be in force ? The great
!ody of the people can, ot couise, amend the
Constitution: but those lew hundreds of sell
elected delegates do not represent the people.
They have no more right to speak in the name
ot the people than had the three tailors of
looley street. The great Union Convention,
al hp ugh it had constituencies behind it, and
did represent toe people, did not assume to dic
tate changes in the Constitution: they met for
the more modest purpose ot declaring their
willingne.-s to obey it.
Even it they had desired alterations in it,
they would have telt bound to obey it as it
stands, eo loin; as the wished-ior amendments
bad not been ratified. But these radicul cou
ppirators stubbornly refuse to recognize any
thing as binding but the Constitution as they
wish to have it. The Constitution declares nil
ihe States entitled to representation, and per
mits them to regulate the suffrage tor them
selves. But these disloyalists openly repudirue
its authority, and announce that these provi
sions shall "be lorever null, whether they suc
ceed in amending them out of the Constitution
The holding oi this absurd parody of the
great Union Convention is an extorted acknow
ledgment ot the great political influence of the
body which is so awkwardly mimicked.
The PresliU'ut unit the People.
From the Times.
The spontaneity of the demonstrations which
attend the tourol the President is their most
interesting and mot significant feature. T.iere
is little evidence of prepaiatiou on either side.
The people seem to have tiken the allair into
their own hands, and to manage it with the
ardor of an honest enthusiasm. And the Presi
dent evidently so interprets it, for his speeches
are an expression ol hi- own earnest convic
tions, couched in the lorm which best com
mends iisell to the popular heart.
If politics enter more largely into the inter
course ihan was at tirt intended, let us not
forget that the circumstaute w niaiuiy attributa
ble to those who no pretend to deprecate it.
The journey, as arranged, was not ciesiguedtv
politcal. It was undertaken with reieieuce to
the memory ot u eta euun who possessed the
coidideuce'of.a considerable body of his country
men, who cannot be uunnndlul of the honor to
be paid to ihe pa riotisui ot the.r departed
leader. Puny politics in such a connection
seemed out ol plat e, Hnd the President and his
triendB announced their intention to ignore
them. Buc hia enemies pieveuted adherence to
ibis intention, and piovoked the displays which
now n.ortilv and oilend them. The Philadel
phia radicals took the initiative. They pursued
a course which rendered the exclusion of poli-
ics impossible. They thought proper to shameu
political hostility with personal insult, and to
vindicate their oppo-riou to tne policy of the
President by Blighting his person aud his oflice.
From that moment no choice remained. The
adicals had decided upon using the oonortu-
nity against the President, whose friends were
thus compelled to rally to his support, and to
accept the issue forced upon them.
Hence tne political complexion which the
tour has assumed, and the importance of the
manifestations of popular lei ling which it has
aiied lorth. TUe people tooK uo the challenge
which the radicals had thro u down, und now
we witness outbursts oi enthusiasm nhich the
eii( imes ot the President cau neither explain
away nor counteract.
Kach succeeding ellort of radical malignity
selves but to exhibit the popularity whicn en
circles Andrew Johnson in more striking light.
The Mayor and oiher small great men of Phila
delphia helped 10 disgrace the city for which
they are expected to speaii ; bin the people ot
the city redeemed Us reputation noblv. And
the experience has been the paiue wherever the
ame direputable conduct has been attempted.
Staid old Alnany re I used to be bound by the i LI
natured proceedings ol the radical State Sena
tors, and along th route thence to Niagara the
President has been honored with a series of re
ceptions which prove taut the radicul boasters
do not quite carry rural Jiew York in their
pockets. Indeed, the more violent the efforts
oi rauicaiB to oecry tne tour ana insult the
President, the more triumphant are the doings
of the people in his fnvsr.
Aud Andrew Johnsons Bbrewnesa enables
him to prohi by the genuineness und impromptu
nature ot the demonstrations to the fullest ex
tent. High-art critics have tound fault with
some ol his speeches as too combative and un
polished; forgetting that they are elic.tod by
floss attacks upon himself aud hU principles,
and that thiir iorce is derived trom tlie nbeuce
of formal preparation. The people proceed on
the assumption that be is their President; and
ho speaks to the people under the idea that the
cause he coctenoj for is their cause, and that In
the end they will win, whether the radical poli
ticians like the victory or not.
The tone of speeches on occasions of this sort
is vastly mere iaiportant than mere tortus of
expiess'iou.' The people care less for verbal
niceties than lor the clearness aud honesty of
the mind to which they hsten. And in this
decided pieference lies the strength of the
President. The case he is called to state requires
neither metaphor nor subtlety. It is a question
of restored Union based upon the Constitution
as it is, or disunion as a consequence of the
radical policy. It is an appeal Ironi the dogmas
of professional philanthropists and the plots of
revolutionists, to the judgment ot the patriot
inthers and the purposes ot the Union armies.
Radical tounialists may endeavor to confound
the merits ot the question, Dut Andrew jonn
son's statement of it carries conviction to the
hearts of the people.

-From the Ilerald.
Tlie Convention of all the odds and ends of
bumanlty, from the cadaverous, pale-faced and
canting New England parson to tne blackest
and Btrongi'st-emellinK African, met in Philadel
phia yesterday. The shades of color among the
conventionists were as various as the physiog
nomy nDd idloByncra&les were remarKable,
Such an aggregation of the freaks of nature,
physically aud mentally, in tho shape of
humanity, tas never seen before. Our cor
respondents have clven us graphic pen and ink
tketches of Eome ot the delegates and scenes,
but it It to be Loped that one ol our best pho
tographers will cot lose tne opportunity of
taking a plctuie of the motley und extraordinary
lu tbe call for this Convention It was dpnlg-nau-d
"The Southern Lo abuts' Convention,"
but it is now culled the "LovallH's'Conveutioii."
We do uot kuow what the alterthougot wa
which led to dropping the word "Southern."
Probably the managers lound that it would be
a very beggarly aflair if confined to the "white
trash'' of the South, and therelore they con
cluoed to fill Hp with Northern niggcr-wor-shippers,
and give it a more general title. Now
know that, according to the sense io which
the radicals use the word "loyalist," there are
but lew white men In the South who come
udder the designation. They say themselves
that the mass ol the loyal people of the South
are the blacks. It is hardly necessary to
say that we and all the consirvative
people of the North differ wlta tbera as
to the truly loyal white men of the South.
The really disloyal Hie dlsunionists of
the present day -are these very radicals,
miscalled Southern loyalist, now assembled In
Philadelphia, while the loyal, honest, and true
nieu are the bulk of the Southern whites who
accept in good faith the decision ol the war,
ond desxe to live in harmony again under the
old das. But, taking the declaration of Jack
Hamilton and his fellow-conveDtionists, I hat
tlie niggers lorm th great maionty of the
Southern loyalists, why. we ask, is not the Con
vention composed chiefly of thee blacks?
Why were no some ot the distinguished and
numerous I'ompeys, CVsars, Scipl s, George
Wasbingtons, and Tom JeCersons chosen as
delegates? If they are intellieent enough to
have the elective franchise, and are entitled to
all the piivileges of white men, it is flat usur
pation on the part of Hamilton, Person Brown
low. Greeley, and the rest of the Conven
tion to keep them out. Why does not
Fred. Douglass denounce this hypocrisy ? He
ought to see to it that these political tricksters
do not usebim and his race loriheirown beuetit.
Not only ought the Southern negroes to be most
largely represpnied, but one ol them oimht to
b( tho President of the Convention. Or, it their
while brethren ol both sections have not c nU
deuce em ugh in the abili y of one of the planta
tion nlcgcis lor the position, Fred. Uouglass
ought to be unexceptionable. He has iuore
ability than most of the white delegates,
and certainly in the representative man ot his
tace. li appears, however, that Frei Douglas
is not even to be admitted as a delegate. He is
to be ruled out on th pretense that he is a
Northerner, but evidently on account of his
color. It is said that General Hiram Walbridge,
too, will nor be admitted. Whether it is sus
pected that he has nigger blood in his veius or
not we have not learned.
The only busir.es9 ot tho Northern mean
w hites at Philadelphia seems to be to swell the
numbers and to make a noise. They are only
to sit in the Convention as guests or 'friends of
the miserable small clique of mean Southern
white.-, taking no part in ihe oflicial proceed
ings, it looks as if this had been so arranged
in order to keep out Fred. Douglass aud other
The oaikies r,f Philadelphia, the bootblacks
and waiters, evidently have a proper apprecia
tion u the ConveuiionUts. Oue of them, re
jncir.g in the name ol Dauiel Webster, was
askeo v. bat he thought of the Convention. He
replied. 'Weil, sua, opu't know much; these
folks talk a great deal, but they never give us
any -ta:)p-:'ell our stamps come trom the other
sine." In all probability, most of the mei.n
membeis ot this most mean Convention black
their own or each other's boots. The negroes
urp a very pract cal hoi t of people about stamps,
and know well euough who are their friends.
Frrd. Douglass aud his colored brethren may
feel llattered lor a time by having walked arm
iu-arm v.ith GtLor.il Ben. Butler and General
Buriisicle; but they will soon find out how they
have been humbugged.
The Convention, so-called, is a complete fizzle.
D. I). Forney, with his strikirs and tlie ritl-rati'
of Philadelphia, endeavoied to make an excite
ment by parades, and a display of bunting; but
all thai turned out a ridiculous farce. The dis
niay of fire engines, and tire companies, the
sounds of drums and lites. and t;ie hurrahs of
crowds ot rowdies and boys, hired lor the occa
sion, were like the noise and fuss ol a niouuie
bank show , to astonish aud amuse the ignorant.
Failms to attract attention 111 any oiher way,
these black and white radicals resor'ed to the
showman's tricks. All tins is reaily amusing,
and we might dismiss the Convention with ridi-ci.U-:
but' ihe incendiary language of the
speakers, and the inlamous abuse of the Presi
dent, deserve Cue seveiest condeniuat;ou. The
language of these radicals was revolting and
revolutionary in the extreme. They spoke of
:iegro insurrection, violence, blood, and revolu
tion, as boldly as ever the Rebels did. We are
uot sure that it is not the duty of the President
to arrest these new traitors and disunioniBts,
One thing is certain their proceedings will

of tbe republic, and give impetus to the reaction
which has set in against them throughout the
