Poisoning (He Ulinda of Children.
During tho past week, we have
como across a book which seems to
ns to exceed anything before given to
the public, both in falsehood as to
facts and in vulgarity as to style. The
book is "The Child's History of the
Great Rebellion." published by the
Harpers, and it is sufficient to stamp
that house with ineffable infamy, if
they never again publish another
book of the kind. In order that our
readers may form some idea both of
the style and contents of this infa?
mous volume, which is to be put into
hands of the youth of our land, we
give a few choice extracts.
Referring to the secession of South
Carolina, the writer says:
"These bad and foolish men now
said the long wished-for pretext had
come, and that tho Union must be
dissolved. The State Governor, one
Gist, called his Legislature, and sent
word to them that the Stato ought to
secede. The United States Judge,
one Magrath, who had taken an oath
to be faithful to the United States,
took off his robes in open court, and
declared that the United States of?
ficers had no farther business in South
Carolina. The South Carolina Sena?
tors in Congress resigned-a good
"A good riddance'" to those whom
the writer denounces as traitors for
going! Again, referring to Mr. Bu?
chanan's Cabinet, he says:
"His Cabinet was full of traitors.
The Secretary of the Treasury, How?
ell Cobb, labored with a will to ruin
the credit of the United Suites, re?
signed when he could do no more
mischief, and became a rebel general.
The Secretary of War, Floyd, sent to
the South all the arms he could lay
hands on, stole some money, and
then ran away, and became a rebel
general. The Secretary of the Inte?
rior, Jacob Thompson, stole a mil?
lion, ran away, and became a rebel
Considering that it has been
proved, over and over again, that all
the above charges of stealing are ab?
solutely false, tho coolness with which
they are here stated as historical facts
is, to say the least, refreshing. Again,
hear the wretch tell how Mr. Bucha?
nan turned "green," and wrung his
"yellow" hands. Fine reading for
"Mr. Stanton boldly told tho Pre?
sident that further parley with rebels
"was treason, on which feeble Bucha?
nan turned green with fright, and
wrung his hands in abject imbecility. "
"Mr. Buchanan looked on coolly,
wringing his yellow hands, and the
rebel batteries grew by the rood each
Here is a lie out of whole cloth :
^ "Those Northern men who are
Vfc-iends of the rebels bellowed franti?
cally for peace; a regiment was raised
- in New York to fight for the South,
and many Northern newspapers as
sured the rebels that if it came to
war, there would be as many North?
ern men on their side as against
Who raised a regiment in New York
to fight for the South? Just listen
to tho sneering way which he refers
to the patriotic efforts of ex-Presi?
dent Tyler to prevent the horrible
war through which we have passed :
"There was a droll body which met
at Washington, under tho Presidency
of shuffling Captain Tyler, and called
itself a Peace Conference. This
droll hotly met to see if anything
would satisfy the South, but the
wholesale eating of dirt by the North;
on inquiry, the South said, 'No,
nothing would do but the eating of
dirt wholesale;' and so this droll body
Here is something absolutely fiend?
ish. Referring to the killing of Gene?
ral McCook, in Tennessee, by a band
of guerillas, he says:
"I Confess that I am not quito as
sorry a.% perhaps, I ought to be when
I tell you that this gallant hero's
regiment, hearing of his death, ob?
tained leave to visit the place where
he was murdered, and burnt down
every house within ten miles of the ac?
This is a sample of thc amiable and
Christian spirit of this volume for the
youth of our laud!
Can any one conceive of a book to
be placed in the hands of children
more damnable, moro fiendish than
such as the above indicate this to be?
And yet these extracts are but a sam?
ple of the entire volume. Such
wretches as Butler are praised and
endorsed to the fullest extent, while
every person opposed to the war ol?
in the ranks on the opposite side is
put down as a scoundrel and avillaiu.
I New York Neus.
"Thc Groans of tin- Britons."
It affords us infinite pleasure to
read the lugubrious complaints made
by Forney against the President.
Hear his lamentations:
"Andrew Johnson's conspiracy to
destroy the great Republican Union
party of America is being rapidly de?
veloped. The signs are unmistaka?
ble. It is now confidently asserted
that Colonel Richard Coulter, of
Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania,
has been fixed upon as the Johnson
candidate for Governor, aud will be
placed in nomination at Pittsburg, in
July next, for the overthrow of the
Republican Union party, the electiou
of Clymer over Geary, the oblitera?
tion of thc Republican majority in
Congress, and the admission of the
rebels into the Senate and House.
There is not a County iu Pennsylva?
nia iu which Republicans ure not to
be tempted by patronage to aid in its
demoralization and defeat. The bu?
siest man iu this .shameless treachery
is the President himself. Foreseeing
that lie cannot force his policy
through Congress, he has determined,
nuder the guidance of William H.
Seward, to employ the ready and re?
vengeful ageucies of the copperheads
of the North and the traitors of the
South to bring it about. Corrupt
politicians are of course ready to seil
out. You can see them waiting for
their pay around you; and a very
few, whose Republicanism has been
noisy, are prepared to defend 'my
policy' in return for a lucrative office.
If thc people are not themselves
vigilant, resolute, and proof to all the
blandishments of patronage and
power, a short time will see the aris?
tocracy of the South restored to that
fatal ascendancy which safely pre?
pared and speedily precipitated the
Alas, for Forney! He sees but n
poor prospect of getting into the
Mu. SEW ABD.-Whilst Mr. Seward
would have entitled himself to in?
finitely m re credit hud he taken
more decided ground in behalf of the
President at the time of the veto of
the Freedmen's Bureau bill-had he
confessed the open breach between
the President and Congress, instead
of endeavoring himself to conceal it
we nevertheless regard him as .thc true
friend of the proper policy of recon?
ciliation. Ho has used his influence
very earnestly of late, wc believe, to
give all possible strength to that
policy. Wc have good reason for
this conclusion, and good reason to
believe that lie entertains enlarged
and liberal views on the state of the
country. He is especially grieved at
the nature of tho present conflict and
the bitter war upon the South. We
have good authority for ascribing to
him the honorable and just sentiment
th.it "// is cowardly to continue the
quarrel when the war is ended."

Wo know Jack Hamilton well. Ho
started in Alabama as a merchant's
clerk; afterward?? went North and
purchased a stock of goods on credit,
sold them, put the money in his
pocket, disappeared between two
days, aud next turned up as a lawyer
in Texas, where, through a course of
years, he gained much more reputa?
tion as an unprincipled pettifogger
than as a jurist. In other words, he
was universally held, wherever known
by the bar of Texas, as a knave, and
was watched and treated as such. His
card now is to rule Texas, or make it
a field of perpetual strife.
