Pennsylvania. The Union men of Penn
sylvania are preparing for a d eeided and aggressive
contest, w ith no apprehensions as to the result.
Their 'opponents have given them a great ad
vantage, by nominating a candidate for Govenor,
notorious on account of his secession proclivities
a thorough-going opponent of the war for the
Union ; an endorser of Judge Woodward's in
famous yvish that the line of the Rebel Confederacy
were so drawn as to include the State of Penn
sylvania ; a defender of the Supreme Court de
cisions that the Government had no right to levy
soldiers from the State, and that the fact of service
in the Union army disqualified a citizen for exer
cising the right of suffrage. In view of this
damaging record, the assertion that Mr. Clymer
is now a supporter of the Administration which
has been changed only by the accession as its head
of a man whom he bitterly denounced for j-ears
can have very little weight. The struggle will be
a sharp one ; but its result is not doubtful. Ex
change. The ice on the Hudson river is rapidly
breaking up, and navigation between New
York and Albany will soon be resumed.

ANOTHER PLAN FOR THE RE-ORGANIZATION
OF THE SOUTHERN
Mr. Stewart, (rep.) of Nevada, introduced
the following joint resolution, which was
referred to the joint Committee on Recon
struction : '
"Whereas in the present distracted condi
tion of the country it is eminently proper
and necessary that all just and constitutional
means should be employed for the quieting
of popular excitement, the removal of un
reasonable prejudice and the obliteration of
all hostile feelings growing out of the late
unhappy civil war ; and whereas one of the
most prolific sources of unfriendly settlement
is the conflict of opinion existing on flic sub
ject of negro suffrage ; and whereas it is now
most evident that there is no probability
whatever that Senators and Representatives
in Congress from' the States whose, people
were lately in insurrection will be allowed to
occupy the seats to which they have been
elected until such States shall have complied
with certain fundamental conditions, a por
tion of which are hereinafter recited ; and
whereas it is unreasonable to expect the re
establishuient of harmony and good feeling
as long as the eleven Southern States whose
people were recently in insurrection are pre
vented from resuming their ancient relations
to this government , therefore, be it
Itcsolccrf, first, that each of said States
whose people were lately in insurrection, as
aforesaid, shall be recognized as having ful
ly and validly resumed its former relations
with this government,' and its chosen repre
sentatives shall be admitted into the two
houses of the National Legislature, when
ever said State shall have so amended its
constitution as to do away with all existing
distinctions as to civil rights and disabilities
among the various classes of its population
by reason either of race or color, or previous
condition of servitude; second, to repudiate
all pecuniary indebtedness which said State
may have heretofore contracted, incurred or
assumed with the late unnatural and trea
sonable war; third, to yield all claim to com
pensation on account of the liberation of
its slaves; and fourth, to provide for the ex
tension of the elective franchise to all per
sons upon the same terms and conditions,
making no discrimination on account of
race, color or previous condition of servi
tude; 2"'1' "tot, that those who were quali
fied to vote in the year 1800, by the laws of
their respective States, shall not be disfran
chised by reason of any new test or condi
tions which have been or may be prescribed
since that year.
JU-mlred" That after the aforesaid condi
tions have been complied with and the same
shall have been ratified by a majority of the
present voting population of the State, in
cluding all those qualified to vote under the
laws thereof as they existed in 1800, a gen
eral amnesty shall be proclaimed in regard
to all persons in such State who were in tiny
way connected with armed opposition to the
government of the L'nited States, wholly ex
onerating them from all pains, penalties or
disabilities to which they may have become
liable by reason of connection with the re
bellion. HfvilreJ. That in view of the thorough as
similation of the b:iis of siitl'rajrc in the va
rious States of the Union, all other States
not above speciticd shall be respectfully re
quested to incorporate an amendment in
their State constitutions respectively corres
ponding with the one specified.
! snla l. That in the adoption of the afore
said resolutions it is not intended to assert a
coercive power on the part of Congress in
regard to the regulation of the risht ol" suf-
I I rage in the dillcrcnt States of the Union, but
only to make a respectful and earnest appeal
I to their own jood sense and love of country.
with a view to the prevention of serious evils
now threatened, and to the peaceful perpetu
ation of the repose, the happiness and true
glory of the whole American people.
The Uoston Pilot, in a well written and
candid review of the frt sidenfs position,
concludes thus : " Amid all these combined
attacks, the President has stood firm, un
flinching and undaunted. He has appealed
from party to the people ; from leaders to
the masses; and he stands, to-day, the standard-bearer
of the Union, the defender of the
Constitution, the one man on the watch
tower of his high otlice to defend both from
assaults, anil to sound the notes of danger
IItt. The Ciiarlottsville Chronicle of Sat
urday lar. give a palpable hit as follow:
It seems fo us as hard to uyt ; the Union as
i it is to get out. The South respectfully asks

j the fellow who was forced to go to the show.
and then not allowed to go any further than
where he had paid for his ticket. A"e have

collectors. e can hear the animals growl

we pay for two and take in a colored lady.
And the worst of it is, they keep a great

A RADICAL SLANDERER EXPOSED.
Charles A. Dana, formerly of the New
York Tribune, and now the editor of a bor
der ruffian journal in Chicago, has been for
some months one of the most violent and
abusive of the radical slanderers and villifiers
of President Johnson. The publication of
the following letter shows that the motives
of this chap have simply been wounded van
ity and a desire for revenge upon the Presi
dent for refusing to appoint him Collector
of this port :
Chicago, Jan. 20, 13G6.
Deau Sir : Some of my friends in the
New York delegation in Congress want me
to be Collector of New York. I shall be
glad to have that office, and accordingly ad
dress myself to you. I have been a resident
of New York city for nearly twenty years,
till a few months since, when I came here on
leaving the War Department. I know New
York, its merchants and its politicians, but
by reason of my connection with the War
Department I have been absent, so as to be
free from all identification with the political
factions or personal controversies by which
the Union party there had been much divided.
I believe that there is no person of any prom
inence in the party whose appointment would
give greater general satisfaction than mine.
Should you be disposed so far to entertain
the idea as to wish for information concern
ing my capacity to administer the office,
there is no one who can judge better as to
that than Mr. Stanton.
Let me add that I am myself confident of
performing the duties, should they be in
trusted me, to the advantage of the public
service and to your entire satisfaction.
I am, with profound respect,
Your faithful servant,
CHARLES A. DANA.
To his Excellency the President.
In this letter the character of Dana is fully
exhibited. He thinks himself a prominent
member of the republican party; he actually
believes that his appointment "would give
general satisfaction ;" he refers to Secretary
Stanton, for whom he acted as a spy ttpon
our generals ; he " feels confident of perform
ing the duties " of Collector " to the advan
tage of the public service " and to the Presi
dent's " entire satisfaction," and he entertains
"profound respect " for the President. But
when Mr. Johnson declines to give him this
otiice he turns about, declares that the Presi
dent is inferior to a negro in intelligence and
capacity, calls for his impeachment anil re
moval from oflleo charges him with all known
and unknown crimes, and rants like a black
guard to whom a gentleman has refused to
give a shilling to buy a drink. Further com
ment is unnecessary. Like the President, we
have no ammunition waste upon dead ducks.

SATURDAY, - - MARCH 24, 1866.
Governor (Jraham-3Ir. Fessendeu.
We lack room to-day to publish in full,
but shall publish in our next, a communica
tion to the National Intelligencer from the
Hon. William A. Graham, containing some
correspondence between that gentleman and
the Hon. W. P. Fesseuden, of Maine, in re
lation to the examination of witnesses before
the Committee on Reconstruction. We are
not disposed to submit any comments on
this correspondence without giving Mr. Gra
ham a fair and full hearing in our columns.
Mr. Graham asked the privilege of being
present at the taking of testimony by the
committee in relation to this State; and Mr.
Fesseuden replied that " it is not customary
to allow a cross-examination of witnesses be
fore a committee appointed to report on a
subject not involvingindividuals."' And Mr.
Fesseuden adds, "the committee is quite
willing, however, to examine any witnesses
who may be produced, having a knowledge
of the subject-matter, to any reasonable ex
tent." This reply, it seems to us, should
have been deemed satisfactory, and as closing
the door to further correspondence on the
subject ; but Mr. Graham rejoins, aud raises
the question " whether the right of a State
to representation is not entitled to an equal
privilege of defence by those whom she has
chosen for that office.' To thin htUr no ai
sirer ir,;x tni'ili' by Jfr. Fexxciuh'it.
Mr. Graham seems to have proceeded on
the assumption that the merits of the indi
viduals chosen to represent the State would
be inquired into, on evidence before the com
mittee ; but in this Mr. Fesseuden tells him
he is mistaken. The committee is inquiring
for itself, in its own way, not into the char
acter of the members elect to Congress, but
into the political condition of the State;
and Mr. Fessenden says in relation to
this inquiry that the committee is quite will
ing to examine, to any reasonable extent, any
witnesses who may be- produced. What
more could be asked or expected ?
We copy from the proceedings of the Sen
ate of the 19th, the following debate in rela
tion to this correspondence :
"Mr. Fesseuden rose to a personal explanation.
He found in the National InMligcneer of the 17th
instant a letter from William A. Graham, a clai
mant for a seat in ihe Senate from North-Carolina,
in reply to his (Fessenden's) remarks, a few
days ago, concerniug the nature of the investiga
tions carried on by the Committee of Fifteen.
This letter of Graham's was intended to convey
the impression that the investigations were not
impartial. Mr. Graham had written to him (Fes
senden,) making two requests one, that the wit
nesses suggested by him (Graham) should be
examined; "and another, that the Representatives
aud Senators from these States be allowed to be
present to cross-examine the witnesses. The last
request was not complied with, because it was not
customary in cases of investigation by a commit
tee, and because tiie proceedings of the committee
were not in the nature of a criminal investigation
where cross-examinations were necessary, lie
(Fessenden) did not regard the lately rebellious
States in the ligat of criminals on trial, nor was
he acting in the capacity of prosecutor. Another
error of Mr. Graham's was his. belief that the
testimony had closed because it had been ordered
to be priiited. It had not closed, except in the
cascol Tennessee. In the case of North-Carolina
no testimony had yet been printed, it all being in
the hands of Mr. Howard, of Michigan, now alj
sent on account of domestic affliction.
Mr. Davis, in reply to Mr. Fessenden, advoea
ted the right of the claimants for seats as South
ern Senators and Representatives to be present
and cross-examinewitnesses. Mr. Davis proceeded
to read Mr. Graham's statement in the Intelligen
cer. Having read for half an hour, he was called
to order by Mr. Chandler, yvho insisted that there
was no question before the Senate.
Mr. Fessenden said he had yielded the floor to
Mr. Davis for him to read Mr. Graham's letter,
but it was evident now that he was reading the
editorials and news columns of the paper.
Mr. Davis said he yvas reading an explanation of
the case by Major Lawrence. At the conclusion
of Mr. Davis's reading, Mr. Fessenden said that
if Mr. Graham desired to introduce further testi
mony in the case of North-Carolina, he could
do so "
We have heretofore published the fact, as
stated in their places by four members of
the committee besides Mr. Fessenden, that
every witness mentioned by persons claiming
scats from this State had been examined.
Mr. Fessenden has subsequently stated that
the testimony as to this State has not closed,
and that the committee will continue to ex- "
amine witnesses to any reasonable extent.
We trust the committee will not content it
self with examining only such witnesses as
may be tendered by persons claiming seats,
but that persona ''unmistakably " loyal, and
not of the faction which now controls this
State, may be sent for and examined. We
want " the truth, the whole truth, and noth
ing but the truth " in this matter.
The Sentinel quotes the following from the
President's veto message, and adds, "we
stand squarely up to it :"
" I hofd it mv dutv to recommend the admis
sion of every State to its share in public legisla
tion, when it presents itselt in the persons ot rep
resentatives whose loyalty cannot be questioned
under any existing constitutional or legal test."
The President here emphatically endorses
the existing test oath, and says it is the duty
of the insurgent States to conform to it.
The Sentinel supported candidates for Con
gress on the ground that they could not and
would not take this oath, and opposed can
didates who could take it. And j'et it says
it stands " squarely up" to the President.
The President also said to the Virginia
delegation that if there were but five thou
sand loyal persons in a State, to tJiem should
be entrusted the work of restoration. Does
the Sentinel " stand squarely up" to that ?
No. On the contrary it assails and maligns
the very persons thus referred to by the
President calls them " cowards" because
they wanted peace during the rebellion, and
slories in the fact that its Editors, were
"good Confederates." The truth is, the
Sentinel and its faction are bitterly hostile to
the President. Hypocrisy is said to be the
tribute which vice pays to virtue, and this is
strikingly illustrated in the course of the
Sentinel and its faction in relation to Presi
It might well be said that extremes htd
met if Senator Stewart's proposition for uni
versal suffrage and universal amnesty should
be adopted. One of the difficulties in the
way is that the true Union men of the South
are opposed to universal amnesty. The time
was when they would ;have agreed to it,
but they have been so deceived and out
raged by the secession element that they
would not do it now. So far as universal or
colored suffrage is concerned, the insurgent
States are in the hands of a majority of the
people of the United States. That majority
can do as it pleases. If it should devise
ally plan by which the insurgent States
should be coerced or tempted to establish
a certain kind of suffrage, the result would
be the practical ignoring of the right of the
States to determine this question for them
selves. It would be idle to say there was no
coercion when a proposition of this sort
should be finally laid down, and the States
should be told they must accede to it or be
indefinitely excluded from the Union. The
insurgent StaU's would do any thing in the
long run to be l-estored to the Union. The
majority in Congress ought to be above
placing conquered States in such a situ
ation. The principle of the right of the
States to decide the question of suffrage
for themselves ought to be strictly and
honestly adhered to. This is the gist of the
President's plan, and for one we do not feel
disposed to abandon it.
We appeal most respectfully and earnestly
to the Congress of the L'nited States to
adopt some plan to restore the States to the
i Union. Our people are anxious to know
I their fate. Every week's delay is still fur
ther crippling us in our industrial pursuits,
and is increasing among us the disaffected,
disloyal element. We make this apeal as
an unconditional Union man. We sincerely
trust Congress will not adjourn without
taking final action on this vital subject.
We have no taste for controversy with
our brother Editors, though we frequently
engage in them with warmth. They arc
unwelcome and unpleasant to us, especially
with those who indulge in " quips and
quiddities," and substitute passion or ill
feeling for calm statement and argument.
Our neighbor of the Sentinel seldom if ever
discusses any question on its merits ; and as
for " artful dodging," he excels in this re
spect the crack characters sketched by
However, in our next, if we should find
space, we shall hoist our neighbor and dis
pose of him on several points that seem to

thus fir we are not damaged. Meanwhile

Prices Still Coming Down. In the Dis
patcli of Thursday we called attention to the fact
that some of our merchants were selling goods
at prices very near those prevailing before the
war. We are glad to add others to the number
this morning. Mr. W. R. Polk, corner of Broad
and Sixth streets, advertises bleached cotton at
twelve and a half cents ; unbleached cotton, made
at the Manchester Mill, at fifteen cents, whieh
the mill was selling a few days ago by the bale at
twenty cents ; calicoes at twelve and a half cents,
and nearly all his new stock of dry goods, just
received, at about the same falling off from the
high prices which prevailed a short time ago. So,
also, it will be seen that Messrs. West & Andrews,
at foot of Church Hill, on Broad street, are sell
ing brown sugar at ten cents ; coffee at twenty"
five cents, and butter at twenty cents. We chron
icle these fact3 with very great pleasure, and hope
soon to be able to report a general decline in all
the necessaries of life. Richmond IHiqxtteli.
Suicide. A Richmond correspondent of
the Index says recently :
Early on yesterday morning, Dr. Busk, of
late a resident of this city, was found in the
privy attached to the store of W. B. Phillips
& Co., on tho corner of Seventh and Broad
streets, in a state of insensibility. In his
pocket was found a partially filled" bottle of
solution of morphine, from which, and from
his condition, it was evident that he had
taken a dose with intent to kill himself.
Medical aid was immediately called in, and
despite every effort made to restore him to
sensibility, he died in the course of an hour
and a half.

have them, without regard to justice or pre
