There is no fact in history further be
yond dispute than that the great majority
of the leaders ot the Democratic party, as
it existed in 1860, went into the rebellion
of 1861. The Vioe President elected by it
became a Major General ot the rebellion,
as did also it Secretary cf the Treasury,
its Secretary of War, and its Secretary of
the Interior. Gf its thirty-eight Senators,
- twenty four of them lelt their seats to enter

of departments, two of them ts serve a it

Hoiue of Representatives, at least sixty
personally joined their fortunes to the re
bellion. Ol its flsteen Governors, twelve
recognised and co-operated with the JtfT

thirteen went into the Confederacy. From

Grant and Logan at a Race.
VAIN ATTEMPTS OF THE PEOPLE TO
Last Wednesday there wu an animated
horse-race at tha Illinois SUla Pair
Chicago, and Genera's Grant and Logan
were among the spectators. The Chicago
tupuHuan girei the following lively
scription ot the tcenet
"Accompanied by General Logan, General
Grieiaon, Adjutant General Baynie,
General J. N. Cook and several other officers,
Lieutenant General Grant made
appearance on the stand, and was greeted
lm mediate lv with a rmrfant innjn
lor which he bowed his acknowl
ementa. Then rose the usual orv fnr
ia;u, witu toe usual n suit which follows
aui aucn demands made upon the Lieutenant
General. As impassive a if he was
unaware cf the prerence of the crowd
before him, be stood quietly rmoa
ing his cigar,, with an air of ab
straction, which teemed to indicate that
his thought were so entirely preoccupied
that he did not even hear the shouts and
cheers which rose from below. Tnen culls
were made for General Logan, but he also
proved to be in a provokingly reticent hu
mor. Those immediately near the two
distinguished individuals wh'e appear
anoe had createi all the stir, had sufficient
entertainment in watch i no- tha
of the crowd, and the perfect coolness of
those whose voices they so earnestly en
treated to bear. At last their imrjortunitw
could be no longer resisted, and General
Logtn stood forward to comply. His
sptwuh was a very simple one. lie merely
informed hi delighted au'lience that the
judges of the race course had announced
that the horses were now ready to start for
tua next neat, ana taat ne hoped they
would have the satisfaction of witnessing
a nice trot. Each man who wanted to bet
upon the event might do so, but for my
part," the General said, I shan't."
"The speech was cheered as heartily
as could have been the most elabo
rate display of oratory ever made, and im-
mediateJy afterwards the horses made their
appearance, and the track was cleared for
the conclusion of the race. No sooner had
the assembled officers witnessed and ap
proved the performances of 'Lad v Walker.'
and the mares had returned to the stable,
than the track was again crowded, and
again commenced the same vociferous de
mands lor General Grant. 'If you won't
rpeaa, uenerai, let us see you,' shouted one
enthusiastic Udividua1; and the tumult of
applause with which the suggestion was
received prompted the General to advance
to the front of the stand and stand there
while he was saluted by another tremendous
volley of cheers. Then, Logan was called
for, and he gratified tne people so far as to
advance and inform them that he would
willingly make them a speech, if, In the
first place, he bad anything of importance
to say, and in the second, if the occasion
were a fittine one for speeches to be made.
He considered that this was not a tilting
occasion. It would be ont of place to talk
polilics.and he was not sufficiently acquaint
ed with agricultural matters to be able to
spaak of them. Above all, however, he as
sured them that he had very pressing bus
iness to attend to at once (and the sudden
pop of a champagne cork immediately be-
nind him assured the audience that the
excuse was valid).
SO he reauestad to fat
excused, at least tor the present."
SPEECHES. A Snake Carried in a Lady's Crinoline.
One day last week a party of young
folks, male and female, in the township of
Franklin, went to the whortleberry rock, a
a d .stance, of about eight miles frcm the
neighborhood. After reaching the rock,
the day was spent in the usual way by
picking berries and wandering over the
vast plain of rock. Evening came, and
the parties returned to their homes. One
young lady, after reaching her residence
ana periorming ner cus ternary wjrk about
the house, repaired to her room to retire
tor the night, and, npon undressing; what
did she discover nicely entwined around
her waist, between her crinoline and under
garments, but a snake fully twenty inches
in length. As might be expected, on mak
ing such a discovery, the lady's feelings
can be better imagined, than described.
She gave the alarm, when other inmates
of the house came to the room and dis
patched hi snakeship. It turned out to be
una of the spotted adder species, which is
very numerous on the rock. The query is,
how did the reptile manage to get in that
position? The only way such can be ac
oounlep for is this : Sometime during the
day the young woman must have been sit
ting down on tha rock, and the broad
skirts now worn might possibly have cov
ered the snake, which in its endeavors to
escape got between the garments, and so
worked itself up to the waist, unfelt by the
party. She states that several times dur
ing the day and evening she felt a sort of
griping sensation about her body, but del
icacy in company constrained ner to bear
it rather than attempt to ascertain the
cause. Huntingdon (V E) Jnurnal.

The mats meeting and soldiers' re-union

and listened to able speeches by Generals
Cox and Geiger and Chaplain Collier.
General Cox made a logical speech, com
pletely reviewing and refuting the doctrine
of State Bights, which he declared the
source of the rebellion. He holds that the
scene of the conflict is merely transferred
from the field to the polls, and that the
struggle will not be ended till the secession
idea has been crushed and made as odious
as Toryism in the days of the Revolution.
This is the controlling idea of the cam

SPEECH OF PRESIDENT JOHNSON.
NEW YORK, September 12.
The following are the main points of the
very important speech made yesterday by
President Johnson to the delegation from
the Southern States :
Gentlemen:: We have passed through
this rebellion. I say we, for it was us who
were responsible for it. Yes, the South
made the issue, and I know the natua of
the Southern people well enough to know
that when they have become convinced ui
an error they frankly acknowledge it in a
direct manner. And now in the Derfoim.
ance of that duty, or any act they under
take, they do it heartily and frankly. Now
they have come to me, as I understand
them saying, 'We made the issue; we
placed the union of the States against the
institution of slavery. We selected the
arbitrator, the God of battles. Tne issue
was fairly and honorably met. Both ques
tions presented have been settled, and we
are prepared to stop the issue.'' I had op
all sides this spirit of candor and honesty
prevails. It Is said tha Issue is ours, sua
judgment has bten against us ; and the
decision having been made against us, we
feel bound in honor to abide by the arbi
trament. In doing this we ara doing
ourselves no dishonor, and should not feel
humiliated, but rather that we are en
nobling ourselves by our action, and we
should feel that tne government has treat
ed us magnanimously. So far as I am con
cerned I im uninfluenced by any question
whether it atlects the North or South, the
East or West. I stand where I did of old,
battling for the constitution and the Union
these United States. In doing so I
know I opposed some of you of the South
when the doctrine of secession was being
urged on the country, and the declaration
your right to break up the government
and disintegrate the Union was made. 1
stand to-day as ever, firmly in the opinion
that if a monopoly contends against this
country it must go down and the coun
try must go up. Yes, the issue was made
the South against the govern
ment, and tha government ha
beaten, and the South, true to
her ancient instincts of frankness and
manly honor, oomes forth and expresses
willingness to abide tbe result of the de
cision In good faith. "While I think that
rebellion ha been arrested and sub
dued, and am happy in the consciousness ol
d uty well performed, I want not only you
tha world to know, that while I d raid
ed and feared the disintegration of the
States, I am equally opposed to consolida
tion and the centralisation of power here
under whatever name they may occur ; and
the issue is forced on us I shall still en
deavor to pursue the same efiarts to dis
suade from this doctrine of running to ex
tremes. But I say let the same rules be
applied. As I have before remarked, I
gratified to see so many ot you here.
manifests a spirit I am glad to observe.
know that it has been aaid about me
my asperities are sharp ; that I had
vindictive feelings to gratify and that 1
should not fail to avail myself of the op
portunities. If my acts do not speak tor
and for themselves, then any profession
might now make would be useless. But,
gentlemen, if I know myself as I think I
I think I know the southern people and
love them, and will do all in my po wer to
restore them to that state of happiness and
prosperity they enjoyed before the mad
ness of misguided man, in whom they re
posed confidence, led them astray. If
there is anything that can be done on my
part in correct principles of the constitu
tion to promote these ends, be assured it
shall be done. Let me assure you that
there is no disposition on the part of the
Government to deal harshly with the South
ern people. There may be speeches pub
lished lrom various quarters that may
breath a different spirit. Do not let them
trouble or excite you, but believe it is the
great object of the Government to make
Union of these United States more
complete and perfect than ever, and main
tain it on constitutional principles more
firmly than ever before.
Then why can't we all come up to the
work in a proper spirit ; in other words,
us look to the Constitution. The issue
been made and reached. Then as
wise men, as men who see right and are
determined to follow it, as la'.hers and
brothers, and as men who love their coun
try in this hour of trial and suffering, why
can't we come up and help to settle the
questions of the hour, and adjust them ac
cording to the principles of justice and
honor. The institution of slavery is
gone, the former status cf the negro had to
changed, and we, aa wise men, must re
cognize so potent a fact, and adapt our
selves to circumstances a tbey surround
Voices We are willing to do so.
Yes, sir, we are willing to do so I be
lieve you are. I believe when your taith
pledged, when your consent has been
given, as 1 have already said, I believe it
will be maintained in good faith, and every
pledge fully carried out. Cries "It will."
Ail I ask or desire of the njouth or North,
the East or West, is to be sustained in. car
rying out the pnnoiples ot the Constitu
tion. It is not to hi denied that we have
been great suffarers on ton Bides. Good
men have fallen, and much misery is being
endured, as the necessary result of so gi
gantic a contest. Why then cannot we
came together around the common altar of
our country to heal the wounds that have
been made. Our country has been scarred
ail over. Then why can't we approach
each other on principles that are right
in themselves and which will be produc
tive of good to all. The day is not far dis
tant when we shall feel like some family
that has had a deep and desperate feud,
the different members of which have some
time met and compared the evil and suf
ferings they have inflicted on each other.
They had seen the infiuenee of their error
ana its result, and governed by a generous
spirit of conciliation they had become mu
tually forbearing and lorgivinar, and re
turred to their old habits of fraternal kind
ness, and become better friends than ever.
Then let us consider that this feud which
alternated us ha been settled and adjusted
to mutual satisfaction, and that we come
together to be bound by firmer bond of
iuyb, respect ana confidence than ever,

To George Garrison, Acoomo county, Vs.:
Sir: Having an idea of leaving tha
United States and being unwilling to have
myself connected with any transaction
which would by any possibility be torVired
into any reflection on myself, I give you
tha following facta:
Sometime in tha summer of 1864, Gen.
Stoneman and his command were on a
raiding expedition through the State of
Georgia, and being captured and most
of tha privates of his command seat aa
prisoners of war to Andersonville, Ga,
owing to the fact that they had been pilla
ging and stealing all they could lay their
hands on from the citizens of Georgia.
General J. H. "Winder ordered that all
species of property in their possession to
be taken from them and deposited in my
hands as poet Quartermaster. This order
wa executed by the commandant of tha
prison. I wa then instructed to return
all property identified to tha original and
rightful owners, aad to hold the balance
subject to orders.
I have thus returned all identified prop
erty, in obedience to orders, and have a
balance oa hand. Knowing tha bitter
feelings of tha Federals toward any one
connected with tha prison department, I
have not considered it advisable, at pres
ent, to call the attention of any Federal
officer to these facts, or to turn over
the property to them, but at the same time -I
am unwilling to hold them without a
proper explanation, to be used in my de
fense hereafter in case any charges ara
brought against men. Some of tha prop-
arty evidently belongs to citizens of Geor
gia, while some of it was prisoners' prop
erty. No list of prisoners from whom
things were taken was ever furnished to

information as to tha individual owner

arty in your hands, subject to your discre

The Tribune's Matamoras correspondent
says the aid wanted by the chiefs ol the
Liberal party is a legion eelrangera of
about slO.OOO men, in order to force all
leaders to obey the regular generals, and
to take and hold some points as a centre of
union. In my conversation with Trevia
De Leon and others, they dwell upon those
two points. The Liberal forces are now
split up into small bodies, each operating
ia a different state. If two or mora of these
bodies unite a French force is sent against
them, and owing to the inability of the lat
ter the result ot nearly every tight at in
their favor. A column of 10,000 men en
tering this country now would find the Im
perial forces in small bodies all over a vast
extent of territory, and would be able to
beat those bodies in detail and drive them
in great haste from the polr'a they hold
with the lose of all their war material. To
raise a legion of 10,000 men one million
dollars is necessary to begin with, and this
is tba great want at present If that sum
could be raised there would be means to
arm, clothe and feed tha legion until some
points in this country, such as Matamoras,
could be taken, and a few million dollars
raised by requisition.
A commissioner is at this moment in
Brownsville with instructions from tha
Minister of Foreign Affairs to raise a loan
of one million dollars, then to raise a legion

joy over tha official announcement by
Marshal Bazino of two Imperial triumph.
It seems that the rumor which we have so
often had of tha flight of Jarauz and the
taking of his eapitol by Maximillian's
troops, has at last proved true. They en
tered it on tha 15th day of August Tha
other important victory was tha occupa
tion of the town of Hemo Lillo, a place of
less than 9,000 inhabitants which the Re
publicans had previously evacuated. These
affairs, though of no great importance,
were being made much of ia celebrations
by the Imperialists, and a special steamer
had been despatched from Vera Cruz to
