CONSCIENCE IN MASSACHUSETTS.
Speaking of Gen. CooasvrBLL's declination
j of the office of Postmaster of Salem, Mass.,
, ono of the few evidences of political con
s' sctrntloasness .that we have recently wit-
nesstil In Massachusetts, the BustojJJVani
crlpl Tolnnteers the following language:
"General Coooswbll's record as a Massa
chusetts soldier and a Massachusetts man is
unstained; and his friends are confident he
will keep it so, in spite of the falsehoods of
the Washington IUrcBUCAN or the tempta
tions of executive patronage,"
We do not understand the Trantcript. If
any Washington paper has been lying about
General Goaoawiu. It most hare been the
Chronicle, aa that paper has the monopoly
in that tine. We have never mentioned
General Coooswiix's name In the llBrcBU
cak, except to (imply announce his appoint
ment. In a leading article, on Massachusetts
politics, the other day, in passing, we alluded
to the (5cneral's father, who was formerly a
member of Governor Bucks! Council. We
may have erred even in that, for it is nut Im
possible that tho whole Couaswtu. family
may have fallen from grace, especially since
the promulgation over Massachusetts of the
radical Interpretation of the New Orleans
riot. The statements in regard to that affair
in the radical papers are all, or nearly all,
most infamous misrepresentations.
If, is the Tratucript states, " the office in
question was tendered to the General with
out any application or solicitation on his
part," wherein Is the attempt, on the part of
Tin Phisidist in conferring it, or the Its
rcnucAit in stating it, made to stain his
record! Did we state a falsehood when we
said he was appointed ? No. Did we state
a falsehood when we copied the Salem Oa
lette't complimentary notice of his appoint
ment t Let the Gazette answer. In accept
ing a Federal office which he did not solicit,
and which he thereby receives without com
promise, does Gen. Cooaswtu. consider his
record as a soldier "stained t" If to, he is
placing a largo number of radical office
holders in Massachusetts in a bad position,
from which we would advise them to relieve
themselves at once. Gen. Coooswiix's note
Is much more polite, consistent, and honest
than the Transcript' t comments thereon.
There have been some givings out that
the Philadelphia Convention will be forcibly
Interfered with by outsiders, but we appre
hend nothing of the sort The politicians
who arc opposed to Its objects, however
much they may fear its effect upon their
own party Interests, can hardly have sum.
cient partisan insanity to make such a de
monstration. We are sure that If they con
sult their financial advisors they would not
be guilty of the folly of attempting to break
up the Convention, for if such a purpose
were consummated the evil results would
fall upon them so directly and certainly
they could not escape them. How much
would greenbacks be worth if such a
load scheme should be carried outt It will
require but a small amount of that kind of
social disorder to reduce the value of Gov.
eminent securities materially. Five-twenties
are In demand in Europe, (at a lower rate
than English three per cents, however,) but
that demand is based upon the confidence of
foreign peoples In the stability of our insti
tutions as they stand, or as they did stand
before the war, a belief that President
Jo7Usox's restoration policy is to prevail,
and thst all the wheels of industry and trade
will again be set in motion in this country.
While the European capitalists are cogni
zant -of the great resources of our nation
they have not an abiding faith in the stabil
ity of the financial policy of our Congress.

" Return mails are now beginning to bring

Gov. Seward always had a " policy of his
own," and has never hitherto been uuable to
" trlve a reason for it." Thoso who havo been
so eager to denounce him, in tho fuco of his
whole history and of every sontirocnt ho has
ever uttered or held, w having deserted the
Union party and gone over to tho rebels and
copperheads, will, sooner or later, understand
his position and their own a good deal better
than they do now.
Mr. Seward has devoted the whole of his
life, with a degree of ability and fidelity sel
dom paralleled, to tho promotion of Repub
lican principles, as tho basis of a permanent
aud peaceful Union, Now, that thoso prin
ciples are established, he is mora than ever
anxiaus-that tho Union, interrupted by war,
should be restore, He looks to the Phila
delphia uonvcntion as naeiy to prove an im
portant agency In effecting that restoration.
Whether It will have a tendency to "disor
gunize tho Union Republican party of the
North" or not, will depend far more on tho
action of that party than on anything the
Convention Itself may do or ny-if. V.

The New York Convention ol tho
"rBBCii or srkator boouttlb.
Afternoon Session. On the reassembling
of tfic Convention, Senator Doolittlcof Wis
consin, was Introduced u a friend of Andrew
Johnson and an advocate of his policy.
Mr. Doolittle said he had been so long a
resident of a Western Bute that he felt
almost as a stranger here In his native State.
He was a delegate from his own SUte, on
his way to Philadelphia. He came here be
cause he was anxious to know the feeling ol
the great filato of New Yprk on the vital
question of the day. The war hat ended and
peace has come. He trusted it had come to
stay. The question is whether the American
people can be as great and magnanimous In
peace as they were powerful in war; how
powerful the world now well knows since the
war Is over. Con wo meet tho problems
which Doace has brought I ' lnhlstudirmrnt.
wo should follow In the footsteps of Lincoln, I
continued applause, guided by the wise amrl
uumane principles wmcu governed bis career,
extending "charity to all; malice towards
none" In that same path which his succes
sor is now treading, Cheers. We shall
demonstrate that our people are, as mag
nanimous in Dcace as thev are strontr In war.
But if Vo snail follow the suggestions of
i naooens elevens and nis louowera in their
cry for vengeance upon tho conquered, we

There are tome who say that the South
has not been sufficiently punished. This he
dented. -They havo lost that Institution for
wnicn tney staked their all. They have been
desolated, while we of the North, although
our Bufferings and losses have been great,
are not to be compared in this respect with
the people of thejjouth. The war 'was car
ried to their very doors their property de
stroyed by hundreds of millions, and their
population fairly decimated. They have in
deed suffered most terribly and beyond pre
cedent in the history of cither any ancient
or modem welfare. The South has been
punished, and, in his Judgmont, sufficiently
punished, to make her feel most keenly the
enormity of tho crime which there originated.
The desolation created by tho famous and
proud march of Sherman to the sea wu
enough to satisfy the spirit of revenge of
xuauaeus elevens; out irom tne spirit or re
venge exhibited by some men, it really
seemed that there were those who believed
,we were still at war. There were tome men
who were most warlike in peace. Ho con
fessed to no respect for such men.
When we must hare war, let it be as sharp
'and severe as peoplo can make it for it is a
mercy to their adversary but when that
adversary cries enough, and laying down his
arms submits to the conquerer, men tfho
would still continno the warfare upon him
are not fit to govern, and ought not to be
trusted by a magnanimous people. .The
wildest Indians on tho plains, when at 'war,
practice all sorts of- enormities; but even
they could give lessons in humanity to the
Stevenscs of to-day. There are some who sav
that Mr. Johnson docs not nte the same lan
guage to the rebels of tho South that he did

it is an attitude of peace. It should and
does make a vast difference with a Christian
people. Ho long at war exists it Is a strug
gle between the national forces; but when
war is over, the conflict Is a moral conflict.
Love Is stronger than hatred. In mustering
tho hosts of men, the doctrine of Christianity
that "you shall deal fairly and humanely
with your enemy" It much more powerful
than the doctrine of rercngo. President
Johnson would not do justice to the Ameri
can people nor to his own groat name did he
not realize this and act upon it as he Is act

Tho speaker briefly alluded to the rjatriotle
career of the President in tho Senate, and es
neciallr from tho beiriunuiir of the rebellion.
After the assassination of Mr. Lincoln; after
our great victories, and after the Southern
armies had surrendered, and the humbled
Southern States sent delegates to Washing-
ion suing lor paroon, ne proved ntmseif true
to his country and true to himself, and though
he suffered as those who now denounce hun
never Buffered, he proved to the world that
ne, anu mrougu mm, tho people of America,
could be as great and magnanimous ip peace
as they were strong and powerful and bril
liant in war. Cheers for President Jolmson
and Bcnator Doolittle. ,
' After Mr. Doollttle't speech, the Commit
tee on Organization reported Robert II.
Pruyn, of Albany, as President, and a long
list of Vice Presidents. Mr. Pruyn made a
few remarks on accepting the position of
President of tho Convention.
Resolutions were adopted that tho plat
form by the National Union Committeo in
tho call meets our unqualified approbation;
that wo havo unfaltering confidence in the
honesty and ability of the Chief Executive
or the nation, and in his fidelity to constitu
tional law aud liberty, upon which the future
safety of tho Union depends; that we are in
favor of the restoration of all the States
lately in rebellion, bnt now loyal, to full po
litical relations to tho Union, including the
right of Congressional representation; that
we deprccato the failure of Congress to
operate on measures for the restoration of
the Union upon the honorable terms initiated
by the late President and adopted by his
successor, and also its postponement of
measures likely to lead to such, restoration
and adoption acts involving a prodigal
waste of the national territory and public
money; that the results of the late war hare
forever set at rest the questions out of which
It arose, and the efforts of the people of all
tho States should now be directed to the re
pair of its ravages by the development of
the country's resources; that our thanks are
due to our soldiers and sailors.
Delegates to the Philadelphia Convention
were then elected. The delegates at large
are Gen, John A. Dix, Henry J. Raymond,
Chas. J, Myers, A. L. Oomstock, S. J. Til
den, Wm. Kelly, Hiram Devine, Sanford E.

were also elected. The convention adjourned
