r .The. Republican editor of thi place is
; considerably exercised about ibe starting of
a new paper ia this cocr.ty,r;y the disorgan
- izntn his own party. Ha seems to think
- It a fixed fact that another paper, ia the
. support sod holding to the same principles
of the rr,J to which he belongs, will be
' established, and in strong and loud-souhdiog
" words caotiona his patrons not to touch or
handle the unclean thtag, at it would only
-' have the effect lo weaken acd destroy that
unionism of which he so much boast in
this county. It is asserted In this Republican
that the new institution is to be an Andrew
JAason organ, and that Senator BtrcssLiw
is leading his efforts to effect kt hit object
. This litter we know nothing about, but
f -ecncede that information entirely to the
editor 'of the Republican. We scarcely dsern
' it necessary to warn oor Democratic
fr'rends against subscribing, or in any way
patronizing, the -new paper. The Demoe
rarj of Colombia county sustain their press ;
" and stand to-day, as they always have stood
by the sop port of the President, so far as
he has gone right ; and in doing this, they
have not yet found it expadiect to become
' tae dopes of a set of unprincipled scoun
drels who manage ai:d shape the affairs of
rhe Republican party. This party estab-
liahed an organ to do their blowing ia this
county ; and it now has become apparent
to many of them, when it is most too late,
that the man who handled the horq has
been blowing it successfully for bis own
-aggrandizement. This may be sufficient
.grounds with some peop!e for the establish
H.ent of another Republican paper, but
iib many honest men who have allowed
themselves to become the tools lo do the
bidding of the fugleman of the Republican
, party in this county, it will not meet with
much favor; hence the Republican editor and
Rsvtnve Asstssor should not squirm and
wriggle omit he has, as we think, some
s'ronger evidence of his downfall. The
..poor fellow imagines that Senator Bccxalew
is after him, acd that he beholds. wi;h his
fnnoinooa eyes, the broad vortex of ruin
. -into which he is about to be so ruthlessly
;ptungeL Senator Scckalxw is a hard man
4o fight, and when he takes anything into
. Ti head he generally goes through with it
... regardless of expense or labor; but our
experience and acqnaintance wi n him,
leaches us to know that he gives his an en
. .. tion lo larger game than looking after Re
publican editors of the Thomas Dunn stripe.
If it is necessary that the Republican
. party of this county have another paper,
. one that will give President Johnson a more
hearty and unflinching support than the
one they now nave, in God's name start it;
for, so far as. the Democracy are concerned,
they have no protest to make; they hate
their paper, and with the support the Pres
ident receives through them, they are en
tirely satisfied. The Republican editor not
dicing willing to come out squarely in favor
of the President's reconstruction policy, is
alleged by the men whom he sees fit to call
- djtarganizers, at ont of the reasons for es
tatlishing an Andrew Johnson paper in op-
.- posi.ionto the Republican. This reasoc the
...self-conceited and bombastic editor attempt
:ic argue out of the case by saying that be
if wed; by Andrew Johnson now and al
way has . been one of bis warmest sup
porters; but men who voted for Akcrew
Jchkio bare very great doubts on that
- eobjectjvand the agitation in the Republi
can raaks over the starting of another paper
is one jo the results of this doubt. They
r iiave failed to see in the columns of that de
JeetaUe sheet, the Republican, many short
... patriotic. speeches, delivered to the different
Southern delegations, on reconstruction, as
well as the late speech to the Fred. Doug.
-. las delegation, that vi-hed him for the pur
pese of insisting on the right-of suffrage
beiDg extended to all their b'ack brethren.
Of coarse this speech did not nit the Re
publican man and be gave it the get by ; yet
be claims to support the Prtsident! l5e en
dorses the acts of -Cbngfeas in their nugro
suffrage vote, which is in direct hostility to
' the expressed sentiments of the Pre.sident(
,bat still he supports Andrew Johnson.

On the 19;h of February, 1866, Andrew
t Johnson, President of these (Jailed States,
..delivered to Congress a message vetoing the
Ftaedmen'e Barsao Bill. This is one of
the best acts of his life, and history will so
record it, one too that be ned never regret.
The whole; country, north end couth, can't
" kelp bot sustain him in this veto. An ef
fort, it is thought, will be made by the rad
icals te past the bill over his head by a
two-third. vote. , We have our doubts wheth
er these radicals can 'marshal force enough
to no mis in opposition to me rresiaeni.

present proprietors of the respective offices
have thought it best for the Democratic par

the" two papers and 'hereafter "publih but
one. What the title of that paper will be
is Dot yet fuHy decided. It has been pro
posed to drop ite name of the Srsa or the
NokTH, and on the other hand to drop the
name of the Colcmbu Democbat. .This, of
course, would not auit all, let either title be
dropped. BatVith us, individually, it mat
ters little what the name shall be, and with
our patrons it should be a mstter of small
concern, only that we furnish them with a
good paper. It i our intention to make the
new paper a more readable sheet than our
patrons are now- teceiving ; to give it more
life, originality, local and general news. In
its appearance we would at-k our patrons,
and the pablio generally, to not look for any
decided ' improvement, as that will be im

we have ordered.
Oar facilities for execoting job work are

intention to ti extend them. For neat

Signs of the Timet.
The people throughout the whole State
seem to be coming back again to reason and
common tence; they are exhibiting in their
actions a willingness to abandon their fa
natical notions, bich have had full control
ol their better judgment for the past five
years. Al! the town and city elecliocs held
within the past month indicate a return of
the people to firnt principles, those laid
down and promu'gated by our forefathers,
and maintained many long years enchanged
by the people, until the dominant psr'y
came into power. Since the advent of the
Republican party into position, the order of
the day has been, in all the departments,
from the most humble to the highest, ruin
and destruction. This the people have
felt, to tbeir heart's conlent,in various ways,
and a disposition now prevails to a very
great extent, to chacge tne present syttem
of managing the affairs of our government;
and in order to do that, all bands agree, that
the present party in power must be dis
placed. This change is being imperatively
demanded by the people of all parties of
these United - States. These are stubborn
facts, aud may alarm the Republican party,
but we can't help it. It is the truth; the
hand writing ran plainly be seen on the
wall. Read the speeches of the shoddy
leaders on btick suffrage, then glance" over
the columns of their party organs -and no
lice the lame support they receive, and you
can't help but come to the coaclasiou, "all
is right for the Democracy next Fall.-"'
Lee aud Sterens.
We are told that Gen. Robert E. Lee is in
attendance at Washington u.ider a subparts
of a committee of which Mr. ThadJeus
Stevens is chairman. It must be an interes
ting picturethe soldier who has faced
danger in every form brought in fror.l of a
mao who orce, in a panic, ran away and
jumped out of a back window. It strikes
ns that itis hardly in good las e and perhaps
not consistent with good faith to make pa
roled prisoner of war an unpardoned rebel
a witnefs before a hostile tribunal, and
that, too, on subjects not military. The law
of war ia very strict asto violation of parole.
Not only acts but words may break it, and
one of the first frjits of this interrogation
may, as in the case of Admiral Semmes, be
she close confinement of the President of
Washington Colie3 in a military prison.
Besides, what can Gece.?l Lee, who has
been in the field for three years v?ithool in
termisAioo, know about reconstruction on
the new basis. We pity him ia the hands
of Stevens and his committee.

'Charlotte Loan, a colored womao of

During the four past years the eduetional
interests of the Commonwealth have been
effected more or less unfavorably by the
war. Fewer school houses have been built,
and ol thoe erected, there less In number
of first class houses, less furniture has been
furnishe d and less apparatus been pro
cured than in former yeafs. Many districts
whose directors intended to put fine school
buildings, upon large and commodious lots,
during these four years, have vet their old,
dilapidated, inconvenient bouses, loca ed
at the corners where the public roaJs meet.
Many houses that would but for the war,
hare been well supplied with good furna
tore and apparatus, are yet without either.
Still the greatest injuries that the schools
have sustained is the withdrawal of so large
a number of our best male teachers. In
counties where none but males have previ
ously been employed ' as teacher, many of
the schools have" bean closed, because do
teachers could be proenred. Females, not
bavins: teen expected to teach in these
counties, had not previously prapared them
selves for the .position. Thus the schools
were left without teachers in some cases,
and with incompetent ones in others
Superintendents were obliged to issue cer
tificates to individuals that woold not, u nder
other circumstances, have received them,
directors were forced to place persons in
their schools as teachers, that they would
otherwise have rejected without hesitancy.
In some of the Southern counties many of
the schools have been broken up by the
rebel raids and invasions. Teachers in
some instances were carried off to suffer
and die in rbel prisons, and school houses
have been used for hospitals. In the city
of Harrisbarg four of th public sohool
bouses were filled with woundeS and dyisg
soldiers for several months during 1861 and
1863, and the boya' schools of the city were
entirely broken op. The borough of Cham
bersbcrg was destroyed by fire, kindled by
rebel hands, and most of the citizens there
by rendered unable to pay taxes for the scp
port of schools, now needed more than ever
befre. There academy and female semi
nary were burned, and thus arose the great
damacd for more extensive accomodations,
and higher grades of instruct ioc iu the pub
lic schools ; bot how could those demands
be met by citizens whose property had in
one sad hour been swept away? To aid
the directors in this emergency, the Leg:s
la: ore made a special appropriation to the
schools of the district, of four thousand dol
lars, and released the citizens from the pay
ment of all school taxes for the year 1864.
County superintecdants iu several cases
were drafted, or entered the service by en
listment. This oocasioually happened,too,
at the time when they were roost needed
in their respective counties, as when ex
aminations of teachers were to be held, or
institutes conducted. As a consoquanca.
schools must be supplied with teachers
who had no certificates when their schools
began, merely because there were no Su
perintendents to examine them, and the
schools most be opened before an appoint
ment could be made. Hence, t oo, lenien
cy on the part of the School Department has
been absolutely imperative, in order to keep
the school in operation at all, iu tnaoy dis
tricls of the State. The difficulties" that
have met the school officers of the several
counties cf the Commonwealth have greaily
embarasseJ their operations, ar.d caused
thera at limes to almost despair of keeping
the system in operation.
Aud yet, notwithstanding the di fficulties ,
and drawbacks, and discouragements, these
officers have, as a very general thing; per
severiogly, and with Gidelity. to the cause,
perlormed their duty, refusing to shored
the terra cf school, or employ incompe
fentteac hers when competent ones
could possibly be found. As the war
has been brooght toa successful termination
we may reasonably hope for less embarrass
merit. Our soldier teachers, who have sur
vived the marches, and exposures, and
jhe battles of the campaigns, and the fevers.
anc diarrheal, and pneumonia, and scurvy,
and gangrene, and starvation of the prison
ers, have returned to their fields of labor io
the school room, and we have promise of
better schools. 'Tis true that many came
back crippled and maimed, many with bro
ken down constitutions, and some also with
moral and character gone. Stiil many re
turn to ns better men and better teachers
than they were before. In the army they
have learned most effectually the absolute
necessity of ready, prompt, unquestioning
obedieuce to order, and the importance of
teaching the youth placed under tbeir
charge lo love their country acd its institu
tions. With those things favorable, may
we not hope that oor schools will be more
prosperous t With less taxation for purpos
es, shall we do! build more good school
bouses, and make greater expenditure for
furniture and apparatus? Wi'.h many of
our best teachers returned to ns, can we
not anticipate better gchooli, more thor
ough teaching, and a better system of gov
ernmeCt? With our minds free from the
excitement of the past four years, shaii not
the public attention be more steadily direct
ed to the matter of ednctaling the youth of
oor Commen woalth, and thereby preparing
them for the responsibities that are coming
upon them ? With school officers unem
barrassed by other perplexing official duties,
aot pertainicg to school affairs, can we not
demand of ihern more time for tbeir school
duties, and greater fidelity in the discharge
tf those duties ? Report cf the State Suwnn-

been under the control of the Republicans;
but on Friday last ihe. Democracy rallied at
the municipal election and made a cleau
sweep of the city. The whole Democratic
city ticket was elected by a majority of ever
two hundred. This shows plainly ihat the
popular tide has turned against the fanatics
who are now in pewer. The people see
and leel that they are not fit to be entrusted
any longer with the affairs of the govern
ment. Reading has long been a black ?y;
on the fair escutcheon of the Gibraltar of
Democracy. rOld Berks is now white all
over. Lancaster fired the first gun for the

For them no human power could save.

Wandering o'erthis world's hopes aud fe.us;
Their school days end, iheir lot was cast,
To be the playthiug of the blast.
Where once a smile our hearts did greet,
We now-behold a vacant seat ;
A shadowed gloom rests 00 each brow,
For we are sad and lonely now.
When merry voices reach the ear,
It calls to mind when thou wen hare,
Midst solitude in.eltiri bowers,
We dream of happy by-gone hours.
Dear parents cairn those anxious fears,
And dry your many falling tears ;

Within a calm and sure retreat.

Their morning sun has set at noon ;
