Frest. Jolinson and the South
A large delegation ot gentlemen from
Soulh Carolina waited upon President
Johnson on Saturday afternoon last, in
relation to the question of reconstruction
in that State. The President improved
the occasion to "talk plainly" to them, as
he said, "jo there might be no misunder
standing." lie p;ave these gentlemen his
views upon the question of reconstruc'ion
and the relation of the late rebeliiou3
States to the Federal Government. Ilia
speech, says tho Philadelphia Inquirer, is
remarkable for its honcstj, frankness, and
firmness, and is important, as it no doubt
fchadows torth the general policy of the
Administration on the great question of
reconstruotion, or, as the President terms
it, of 'restoration."
In the first place, the President takes
the ground that there can bo no such
thiDg as Secession. A State, he says,
"cannot go out of the Union." This doc
trine is the very antipodes of all that has
ever been held by the statesmen and po
litical leaders of South Carolina. Per
haps President Johnson, who is well
aware of this fact, thought it best to be
jrin his "plain talk" by a denunciation of
the cardinal error in tho political creed
of the State from which the delegation
hailed. It must have sounded rather
strangely in the ears of his auditors, for
there are few South Carolinians whose
political education has not taught them
to cherish the right of Secession as sa
credly as a Pennsylvanian does the right
of Congress to pass a protective tariff.
Perhaps the gentlemen composing the
delegation do not entertain thi3 opinion,
but it was the fatal rock upon which tluii
State was shipwrecked, and as they had
come to the master mariner to have their
ship righted again, he did no more than
he should have done in poiutiug out to
them where the first mistake was made.
The next question coming up iu proper
order upca which the President gave the
delegation his views, was that of tlavery.
Ilia opinions upon this subject have been
pretty well understood ever eir.ee the be
ginning of the rebellion. While the
Southern States remained Ju the Union,
and obeyed the Constitution and the laws
of the United States, thej and their ir.
utitutions were entitled to and received
the protection of the Federal power, but
the moment they rebelled they rendered
themselves liable to all the consequences
of that rebellion. Their institution of
slavery took issue with ib.6 Government,
and if it went.down in the struggle, they
alone are to blame. These are tho opin
ions expressed by. the President -to the
delegation on the subject of slavery, and
they find their echo in the heart3 of the
loyal masses throughout the eDtire coun
try. President Johnson holds that the Fed
eral Government is supremo, and that all
institutions, no matter what their charac
ter may be, must be subordinate to it. If,
during the last four years of bloody strife,
this great truth has been thoroughly
learned by all sections of the country, it
will serve in ome measure to compensate
for the blood and treasure which have
been poured out so lavishly in its defense.
Tho question of labor at the South,
and the status of the negro were also
touched upon by the President. He is in
favor of leaving the question of negro suf
trase to the decision of each State, be
lieving aa he says, "that it will be settled
as we go along." lie is anxious that
that unfortunate class at the South known
as "poor, whites," phould be emancipated
from the overbearing tjranny of the rich
land owners, and allowed to exercise the
full rights of American freemen. It is a
well known fact that in some of the South
ern States, and especially in the State of
South Carolina, the "poor whites," or
"white trash," a3 they were called, were
as much ignored, prior to the rebellion,
in the political affairs of the State, as the
slaves. It was no doubt to this that
President Johnson alluded when he said
that "he was for emancipating the white
man as well as the black."
One of the most important passages in
the speech of the President is that where
in ho gave the delegation to understand
that the people of South Carolina, before
being restored to their privileges, must
amend their State Constitution by abolish
ing shivery, and that their Legislature
must adopt the amendment to the Feder
al Constitution, passed at the last session
of Congress, which prohibits slavery ev
erywhere throughout the territory of the
United States. This, he said, they must
do in good faith. In several instances
throughout the speech, he took occasion
to impress upon the minds of the delega
tion that slavery, a. an institution, was
dead, and that all efforts to resuscitate it
would be worse than futile.
Under the new order of things, it is
evidently the policy of the Government
that all States wishing to enjoy the bles
sings of the Union must come back"re
gencrated and purged of every taint of the
great evil which was the moving cause of
the rebellion. This is nothing more than
right. We have paid too highly for the
destruction of the monster which lifted its
red hand against the life of the Govern
ment, to ever entertain the idea ot any
trace of its existence remaining on any
portion of our soil.
Union County Convention.
Pursuant to call, the Union - County
Convention of Cambria county met in the
Court House, Ebensburg, on Monday,
June 20, 18G5, at one o'clock, p. m., and
was called to order by Cyrus Elder, Esq.,
Chairman of County Committee. The

George M. Rcei ; Vice Presidents, Win.
K. Carr, Dr. W. Bell, Col. J. B. Fite;
Secretaries, It. H. Canan, A. Jones.

districts in the county excepting three,
who were duly recognized and admitted
to seats in the Convention.
On motion of R. II. Canan, it was Re
solved, That Col. Jacob M. Campbell, of
Johnstown, be and hereby is declared the
unanimous choice of this Convention for
State Senator, and that he be authorized
to select his own conferees.

On motiou, it was Resolved, That when
this Convention adjourn, it adjourn to
meet at the call of the President, to nom

Oa motion oi II. J. Roberts, a com
mittee of five wa3 appointed to draft reso
lutions expressive of the sense of the
Convention, as follows II. J. Roberts,
Cyrus Jt-flVio3, II. A. Boggs, Isaac Evans,
The Convention took a short recess;
aud upon being called to order again, the
Committee on Resolutions reported the
Resolved, That we do most sincerely ren
der thanks to Almighty God, that lie has
kept and preserved us a nation ; that in
Abraham Lincola, late Fresident of the Uni
ted States, we recognized "the man of God"
chosen to restore our people to the paths of
peace, i-n dependence, and universal freedom,
aud that we regard his assassination as bnt
a culmination of the spirit of treason and dis
nnionism as one and the same spirit that
battered down the walls of Fort Sumter and
trampled the American Flag in the dnst m
the streets of Charleston as one and the
same spirit Cat starved to death upwards of
sixty thousand of our brave soldiers in the
prison-pens of the South as one and the
same spirit that butchered our "country's
defenders" in cold blood at Fort Pillow after
their surrender aa pi isoners of war as one
and the same spirit that cist in Cambria
county last fall over 500 of a majority against
the Constitutional Amendment allowing our
brave soldiers the right to vote.
Rtaolved, That in Andrew Johnston, Presi
dent of the United States, we have a strong
and uncompromising Union man, a pure pa
triot, and an able statesman, who will live
enshrined in the hearts of the American peo
ple for ages afttr all recollection of the cop
perhead House of Representatives of 1862
(which refused by a strict party vote to grant
the use of the Hall to the patriot of Tennes
see, that he might express to onr people his
sentiments) shall have been forgotten.
Resolved, That in Governor Curtin we rec
ognize a faithful and energetic officer, a tried
and true friend of his country and her noble
defenders. His administration of State af
fairs meetc onr most cordial approbation.
Resolved, Tbat the thanks of this Conven
tion are especially due our brave soldiers,
who patriotically responded to the call of the
Government and periled their lives in defense
of their country, in vindication of the honor
of the Stars and Stripes ; and the Union or
ganization of Cambria county, appreciating
their valor and patriotism, pledges itself to
do justice to the living and ever bear in
grateful remembrance the memory of the
Resolved, That the heavy debt incurred by
our Government in putting down rebellion
can and will bo paid by a patriotic people,
who feel that the value of our institutions
cannot be estimated in dollars and cents.
Whilst a large portion of the taxes to pay the
interest and principal of the public debt must
of necessity be borne by the manufacturing
interests of the country, expediency as well
as justice demands that those interests should
be protected by abound and sufficient Pro
tective Tariff; and in our Congressman elect,
Hon. A. A. Barker, we feci confident that we
have a Representative who will ably and
faithfully represent the interests of the 17th
Resolved, That in unanimously prese-ntiaga
citizen of Cambria county tor nomination lor
State Senator, and in urgently insisting upon
hi3 nomination by the Senatorial Conference,
we feel that we are asking but even-handed
justice fiom the other counties composing
the Senatorial District. For more than half
a century Cambria has been one of the or
ganized counties oi tbe State, and during all
that time none of her many worthy citizens
has been permitted to occupy a seat in the
Senate Chamber. "We think that the time
has certainly come when her just claims
should be favorably regarded.

Tbe Blockade at an End.
, The President has issued the following
proclamation, declaring the blockade of
the Southern ports at an end :
Whereas, by the proclamations of the
President, of the 15th and 27th of April,
1861,9 blockade of certain ports of the
Uiiited States was set on foot ; but where
as tho reasons for that measure have ceas
ed to. exist,
Now, therefore, be it known, that I;
Andrew Johnson, President of the United
States, do hereby deplareand proclaim the
blockade aforesaid to be rescinded as to
all the ports aforesaid, including that of
Galveston and other ports west of the
Mississippi River, which ports will Ie
open to foreign commerce on the lft of
July next, on the terms and conditions
set forth in my proclamation of tho 22d
May last. It is tor bo understood, howev
er, that the blockade thus rescinded was
an international measure for the purpose
of protecting the tovereign rights of the
The greater or less subversion of civil
authority iu the region to which it applied,
and the impracticability of at once restor
ing that due efficiency may, for a season
make it advisable to employ the army and
navy of tho United States towards carry
ing the laws into effect whenever such
employment may be necessary.
Iu testimony whereof I have hereunto
pet my hand, and. caused the seal of the
United States to be affixed.
Done at the city of Washington this
23d day of June, in the year of Our Lord,
1865, and of. the independence of the

t4IIori. William Wilkins died at his
home in Allegheny county one day last

of 86 years.
B&,Rear Admiral Samuel F. Dupont

It is something IessTtnan seven years
since the first Atlantic cable was laid and
messages sent through it between Europe,
and America. Into what ecstasies of de
light and admiration that partial success
lifted the people of the two continents we
have not yet lorgotten. The "Cable Cel
ebration" will live long in the memory of
New Yorkers, and the keen interest with
which the brief life of that link between
the Old and New World was invested will
he remembered as more than romantic.
The hopes of Humanity in onr then ex
aggerated estimate of the importance of
communication pCemed to hang on the
slender thread that stretched from Ireland
to New Foundland ; and, when it broke,
we should have been inconsolable if other
events more momentous aud vital had not
succeeded. . .
Now, that the great telegraph enterprise
of the century is once more to be renewed,
tbe public takes the matter "more coolly.
The tremendous excitements of the last
four years have superseded our iuterestin
peaceful affairs, so that, though we have
heard from time to time of the progress
of the new cable, we content ourselves
with languid speculatlbns on its probable
success or want ot saccess quite ready
to welcome it heartily if it prove deserv
ing of welcome, but by no means disposed
to set the City Hall on fire again, should
a message once more cross the ocean.
Yet it would be an affectation to deny
that we look anxiously and hopefully and
eagerly to the" great experiment which is
once more on the eve of a great success or
great failure. The new cable is comple
ted. The last mile has been rolled aod
spun and twisted and coated, and all, or
nearly all, of its immense length is safely
coiled away in the huge tanks of the
Great Eastern. Yet we do not know that
the anxiety or indifference of the public
has much to do with the probable success
of the voyage which next month will see
begun and completed. It is safe to pre
sume that, if the cable is once fairly down,
our municipal fathers will find ample op
portunity to organize another celebration,
and spend or steal a comfortable sum of
mouey in Denouncing the event.
Comparing the circumstances of the
last attempt with the present, there is
abundant cause for expecting good fortune
now when before we had only ill. The
very first question is, of course, the cable
itself and the difference between the
two is the difference between an awkward
and hasty attempt of ignorance,. and the
intelligent, deliberate effort to which ripe
experience and . conscientious devotion
have contributed their best resources.
The present cable is 2,600 miles long.
its central conductor consists ot seven
fine copper wires, twisted into one com
plete strand, and perfectly insulated.
Four layers of gutta-percha, inclose it,
each of them insulated like the conductor
itself. This outer covering is protected
by eleven strong wires, each wound with
strands of hemp, saturated with tar. . Du
ring the process of manufacture, the ca
ble has been kept constantly exposed to
severe testa of its conductive power and of
its insulation, having been all the time
immersed in water and traversed by elec
tric currents of buch density aud force as
to develop the weakness of -the wires, if
it anywhere existed. -The difference be
tween the process of manufacture of the
first cable and ol the present is remarka
ble. Then everything seems to have been
taken for granted; -now, nothing is left
to chance or theory. The strength of the
cable, as well as its insularity and "con
ductivity," has been perfectly established
It will bear a weight of nearly eight tons,,
andean Fafety be depended on to support
eleven miles of its length in water. In
stead of being committed now to two ships,
as formerly, the whole cable is stowed on
board the Great Eastern ; and to that ves
sel,, ajded by escorts which will supply
assistance but carry none of the wire, the
great task of depositing the cablo oa the
bottom of the Atlantic is to be intrusted.
It is stowed in three tanks, which are re
spectively, 51 feet, 58 feet 6 in., and 58
feet in diameter, and will hold a coil the
first of 630 miles, the second of 810 miles,
and the third ot 850 miles of cable. The
mechanical arrangements for its delivery
are not materially different from those on
the Niagara and Agamemnon. It is on
the character of the cable itself that the
company rest their chief hopes of a more
permanent success than attended their last
It would be unjust not to give credit to
tho leading men in this enterprise for
their persistent faith in its final success,
and their unremittiug efforts to secure it.
They have not refused" to profit by the
lessons of experience, but, in the miuutest
details as well as in the general scheme of
the present undertaking, have sought to
avoid tho errors which caused a failure
before. If this also should, from any
canso that cannot bo foreseen or provided
against, be necessarily abandoned, we pre
sume tho fame men will with the same
zeal and faith renew their efforts, aud
continue them till the two continents are
It is expected that the Great Eastern,
with its invaluable freight and precious
hopes, will begin its voyage in the early
part ot July a time chosen purposely
later than that ot the first expedition in
1858. Capt. Anderson, who is to com
mand the Great Eastern, is aa old officer
in the Cunard service, and it is in accord
ance with his mature opinion that the
time of sailing is selected. The voyage is
to be a slow one the speed of the ship
being limited, except in certain contin
gencies, to six knots an hour, and it is
calculated that the whole time oonsumed
in the passage from Valentia in Ireland
to the Ray of Heart's Content in New
foundland, will be from 12 to 14 days.
The English papers, which have kept a
much fuller record than we have of the
progress of the enterprise, eeem to be
inspired with aa-uudoubting confidence
that the present Summer will give us an
instantaneous and permanent communica
tion between tho twt continents. New

Cbief Justice Chase to a Com
mittee ot Colored Men.
The following letter of Chief Justice
Chase to a committee of colored men of
New Orleans, explains itself:
"New Orleans. June 6, 1865.
"Gentlemen : I should hardly feel at
liberty to decline the invitation you have
tendered me, iu behalf of tho loyal color
ed Americans of New Orleans, to speak
to them on the subject of their rights and
duties as citizens, if I had not quite re
cently expressed my views at Charleston
in an jddress, reported with substantial
accuracy, and already published in one of
the most widely circulated journals cf this
city. But' it seems superfluous to repeat
them before another audience. -
"It is proper to say, however, tbat
these views, having' been formed years
since, on much reflection, and confirmed
in new and broader application by the
events of the civil war now happily ended,
are not likely to undergo, hereafter, any
"That native freemen of whatever com
plexion are citizens of the United States;
that all men held as slaves in the States
which joined in rebellion against the
United States have become freemen thro'
executive and legislative acts during the
war ; and that these freemen are now citi
zens and consequently entitled to the
rights of citizens, are propositions which,
in my judgment, cauuot be successfully
"And it is both natural and right that,
colored Americans, entitled to the rights of
citizens, should claim their exercise.
They should persist in this claim respect
fully but firmly, taking- care to bring no
discredit upon it by their own action.
Its justice is already acknowledged by
great numbers of their feliow-citizcGt?, and
these numbers constantly increase.
"The peculiar conditions, however, un
der which these rights arise, seem to im
pose on those who assert them peculiar
duties, or rather special obligations to the
discharge of common duties. They should
strive for distinction by economy, by in
dustry, by sobriety, by patient perseve
rance in well-doing, by constant improve
ment of religious instruction, and by the
constant practice of Christian virtues.
In this way they will surely overco-rae un
just hostility and convince even the most
prejudiced that the denial to them of any
right which they may properly exercise
is equally unwise and wrong.
"Our national experience has demon
strated that public order reposes most se
curely -on the broad base ot universal suf
frage. It his proved alao that universal
suffrage is the sure guaranty and most
powerful stimulus of individual, social and
political progress. May it not prove,
moreover, in that work of reorganization
which, dow engages the thoughts of all
patriotic men, tbe best reconciler of the
most eomprehensivo lenity with the inot
speedy aud certain revival of general
prosperity ? S. P. Chase."

The State Prisoners.
A correspondent of the Philadelphia
Inquirer affords us the following inside
view of Fortress Monroe, where suudry
State prisoners are confined :
John Mitchel is treated very much in
the style of the more important Reb-i.
lie subsists on Government army rations,
is closely guarded, and is not alloweJ the
wherewithal to manufactura treasonable
newspaper articles; nor is he furnished
with papers or any reading matter, save
the Bible, or any prayer book that he may
desire. John wiles away the weary hours
of his prison life with smoking, lie
brought a pipe with him, and is allowed
tobacco. No conversation is permitted
with him, nor does he court any. Thus
far he ha3 shown himself rather taciturn
Clem Clay smokes with philosophic in
difference. He occasionally addresses a
pleasant remark to his guards. As a pris
oner he has given very litle trouble.
From the beginning he has subsisted on
the army Tation. He eats but littie,
smokes a great deal, and has evidently
made up his mind that neither fretting
nor grumbling will help his case, and the
best courpe to be pursued is to take things
easily and quietly.
Jeff. Davis, the chief of all offenders,
has fully recovered his hpalth. He has
not yet been returned to his firstdiet, the
army ration. His food is prescribed by
Dr. Craven, and is such as will conduce
most to his health. Since the tone of his
physical health has been restored, he too
has taken to puffing the Indian weed.
He uses an elegant merschaum pipe,
which he brought with him into the Fort
ress. The bowl is wrought in the sem
blance of a turbaned head a la zouave.
The stem and mouth-piece are of pure
amber. This pipe is doubtless a relic of
tho pseudo royalty that Jeff, maintained
while presiding over the fortunes of the
ifjnis faluus Confederacy.
As not a word is allowed to be said to
Davis, he speaks very little. No one is
allowed to see him. Occasionally a high
ly imaginative or positively mendacious
individual, passing through here, gives
out that he has seen Jeff. Davis. These
statements are utterly false; no ono what
ever, excepting only the guards, and Gen.
Miles, have looked on cho "fallen Luci
fer" since his incarceration. Cabinet
officers have visited the fort since JefF s
imprisonment there, but not even to them
vnas accorded the privilege of looking up
on him. Passes to enter the fort can only
be obtained by persons well known here,
and these must have most urgent business.
Then, when in the coveted inclosure, they
are obliged to transact their business and
then leave, not even seeing the row of
casemates whereia Jeff's cell is situated.
