'T* have in caneas determined to hold a
- Convention, in Washington, in Sep?
tember", to erect a new platform and
nominate .Gen.' Grant for the Presi?
dency, tho writer says: ,
"If the convention is held, and the
. .plan is carried to a nomination, it
" simply means that the radicals intend
i revolution, lt is an attempt to carry
theFortieth Congress for th? radicals
?on the personal strength of their
nominee; then to keep ont the eleven
unrepresented States from the next
Congress and the next Electoral Col

"with; and if an issue arises between
the votes cast in accordance with the

scribed by Congress, to have the

stitutionally elected President in
We devote more attention and
space to the doings of this faction
" than might appear seemly in a jonr
- nal published among a people who
are deprived of their political rights
in Congress by this very party, hut
we deem it Our duty to expose their
machinations and do all in our power
to concentrate an opposition to them
among all the friends of the Union
and liberty. The press of the coun?
try aro doing good service in theil
timely exposures of the various
schemes that these unprincipled men
are concocting to retain power in theil
own hands, and thereby ruin every
interest. The writer referred" to doet
not think they can succeed in tbh
new movement, as it would inevitably
produce civil war, and they canno1
inaugurate this without-' the supper
of the bond-holders and soldiers
neither of whom want to see a re
newal of sectional strife?
More of lt.
lt may have escaped the attention
of our readers, that in the new pro
gramme of the radicals there is a sec
tion which declares that the nntionn
faith pledged to the United State
bond-holders "shall not be question
ed." Now, we venture to say that n
one in America ever thought c
"questioning" the pledged faith c
the country for the payment of it
But the scheme of the radicals, b
lugging in this unnecessary anienc
ment, is easily ventilated. In th
first place, they designed to recru
as allies all the bond-holders in tl
country; and in the next place, thc
wanted to make it apx ar that all wi
opposed their whole nefarious fh*oje<
to disfranchise and keep the Sout
ont of Congress, and her people fro:
holding of?icial positions, were repi
diators. A more bald-faced ntteni]
ai political jugglery cannot well 1
imagined. It would puzzle a Phil
delphia lawyer to discover what coi
nection negro suffrage had with tl
national faith and public debt.
The proposal by this faction i
Congress to prohibit the States froi
taxing United States bonds, besid
its manifest injustice, is another bo
.stroke at the destruction of all th
is left us of State rights. The
bonds are chiefly, we presume, in tl
hands of moneyed capitalists, usure
or brokers, and to tax all other int
rests in society and let these shar
go free, is a shameless bid for the su
port of the money-changers ai
bloated capitalists. When or whe
is this thing going to stop? Sur?
tho people of this country have int
ligeuce and patriotism enough to p
the brake on this car of Juggi
naut, which is crushing under
wheels every vestige of the libert
of the people and every remnant

The injury to winter wheat, in New

. The Revolutionist*.
We learn from the National Intelli?

and startling; scheme of usurpation ii
contemplated by the radicals, whicl
is that Congress sholl take a recess
and meanwhile they will organize an
other central directory, upon whicl
shall be conferred plenary authority
to exercise during the recess-if poa

"The boldness of this scheme i
absolutely startling. It is an undi?
guised attempt to substitute a Con

by brow-beating the Executive ant

hands of the Congressional majorit
until it can complete the revolution i
has undertaken, entirely set aside til

of this great nation."
It cannot be possible that the Prt

Even their own newspapers can?
not stand the new tariff bill of the

of tho moat influential organs of Re?
"We cannot doubt that the Presi?
dent'will veto this oppressive bill. He
.is too enlightened a statesman, and
too impartial a lover of tho whole
country, to give his consent to a
scheme whose efforts will be, as we
have frequently shown, to cripple our
foreign commerce, to increase the
present high pri?es of the necessa?
ries of life, to retard the progress
of the country, to grant monopolies
to a few manufacturing capitalists,
and to seduce the scanty laboring
for?e of the country from profitable
into unprofitable employments.
' 'What is needed is a revenue tariff,
and we hope some members of Con?
gress will take the trouble to frame a
bill to jfchat end, and propose it. In
the meantime, we trust thc members

"We warn the prohibitionists that

They aro trying to force a most hate?
ful and wicked Boheme upon the
country.- That is bad enoagb, but
-they are, at the same time, keeping
ont the Representatives of the South?
ern States. Are they doing this in
order to make sure of their own
schemes? Is it to secure the passage
of this prohibitive and destructive
bill, that they refuse to admit the
Southern members? It would seem
so, from their high-handed course.
f*Thc American people will not
tolerate such legislation; they will
sweep away, at the first opportunity,
men so faithless lo the general wel?
fare; there are already signs to show
that the men who vote for this tariff,
especially under the aggravating cir
enmatan cea of the exclusion from de?
bate and vote of the Southern mem?
bers, will be left in a small majority
in the'next Congress."
: It appears that the proposed tarif
hill amounts almost to a prohibitior
ou certain articles of hardware. A
writer in tho New I'ork World show;
up this feature of the bill as follows
It is now proposed, by taxing tin
importation of pocket cutlery, cost
ing under $5, with a specific duty o
75c. per dozen, and costing $5 pe:
dozen and above, with 82 per dozen
in addition^to 50 per cent, ad val.; t<
tax every child's knifo costing (Jd
sterling per dozen, or C. H. value
12e., with both rates of tax, 8c.
which is COG per oont. On car?
boy's knife, which cost ls. 3d. or 30c
per dozen, the two duties will amoun
to 90c., equal to 300 per cent.; ani?
on every farmer's knife, costing 3s
or 72c, the tariff will be $1.11, o
154 per cent. ; whilst the duty on al
pocket knives costing custom hons
value, 72c. to $9. GS, will average 72 pe
cent. Surely the present tariff of 5
per cent, should be enough to satisf;
In table cutlery, a considerable
quantity is imported, which cost 0.
per gloss, or $1.44. The specif!
duty, as the clause passed the House
is 12c. per dozen, or $1.44 per gross
which, with the 45 per cent, arl ral.
is S2.09, equal to 145 per cent. Th
table cutlery extensively used throng!
the country costing Ids., or $3.86pe
gross, the Specific and ad ral. duty i
63.18, or 82 per cent. Ivory tabl
knives, costing bs. per dozen, o
$1.44, is to bear a specific duty of 6

together $1.65, or 115 per cent,, an
a 10s. table knife C. H., value $2.4".
with - both rates, bears a duty <
$2.09, equal to 8f> per cent. Now
was it not reasonable that the presen
tariff of 35 per cent, should bo suit;
cient, or could there not be moder;
tiou enough lo dispense with the spt
elfie now proposed?
An English 12-inch flat-bastar
file, used by nearly every mechanic
custom house value 62.20, with th
proposed heavy specific of $2 pt
dozen, is taxed 91 per cent., whih
Gcrmau files, being of less cost, at
taxed, on tho average, l il per cen
Tho proposed duty on Genua
wrought nails varies from 111 to l?j
p^r cent. ; halter and dog chains, S
per cant. ; coil chains, jllO to 135 pi
cent ; trace chains, 134 to 154 p?
cent. ; hooks and hinges, 183 pt
cent. ; on curry-combs and pad-lock:
with specific, 25c, and ad roi., 46 p<
cent. ; on cheaper kinds, costing hoi
18c. to 48c per dozen, cd which grei
quantities are used, the tariff is 93 1
1S4 per cent.
All these goods come into goner;
use by tho bulk of tho communit;
especially among tho poorer classe
main of whom have not tho moans I

MESSES. EDITO-ES: I have jost re?
turned from the battle-field of Sharps
burg, where I met Mr. Aaron Good.
He has devoted his time to tho care
of the graves of those buried on that
field, and has the names and locali?
ties of all the marked graves. He
has also all tho unknown graves
marked by their localities and the
names of those buried on each side
of them. In this way, he knows
j every grave on the field, and can take
I you to any grave you may ask for.
I These graves are as kindly cared for
as is possible nuder the circumstances,
I but the owners of the land cannot be
prevented from ploughing over them.
This they have done, and committed
outrages of which I dare not write.
[The "rebels" of Maryland and Vir
ginia beg the daughters of South
arelina to bring home their dead;
j and could they see the battle-field af
j I did, I know they would accede tc
I the request. Enclosed you will find
I a list of the marked graves of thc
