Fnxmicfi Uonlivllla Journal talks "right
out in meeting" about the political situation
and Iks duty of th hour. The following in
a specimen 'of an camet anil patriotic edi
torial In that paper of the 2J Inst i
"The elections In four great State l'enn.
tylvanla, Ohio, Indiana and Iowa take place
.to-morrow week. If they should be lu lator
of the i'reaident for hit policy is the pivot
upon which they will turn there it littlu
doubt that thoae of next month, including
Xew York, will be of the tame character, 1 1
would amount to a popular vindication of
the National Executie, and would exult
ingly atrengthen hia handa and make buoyant
Ini heart. We ahould certainly look, then,
for some sober and well-directed efforts on
the part of the more conservative member of
the Repnbllcan party in Congress to accom
modate the differences between them and the
President, and, if possible, to adjust nur na
tional difficulties, admit loyal representath cs
from the South, and end the long and dis
tracting agony. Wouldn't that be best?
Wouldn't it redound to national harmony
and thrill tbe great heart of the Republic as
with an electric shock from the frozen bay
of Passamaquoddy to the golden slopes of
the Pacific, and reawaken the old rapture
" "Walsh hook tat deplhe of the deaart'e gloum '
when It was announced that Lord Cornwall!
had surrendered to the peerless Washington?
Wouldn't It give a new and marvelous Im
pulse to every species of industry through
out the United 8tatest Wouldn't it lend
wing! of supernal lightness to the "ocean
birds" of our commerce on every sea, and
send them home laden with the r.ch argosies
of wealth gleaned from every climcf
Wouldn't it Increase the value of the public
securities, and so augment the national re
sources, through the prosperity of business,
as soon to make heavy inroads upon the
debt of the Government V7ithout imposing
undue burdens upon the people? Wouldn't
It restore confidence, hilarity, vigor, ti'm, and
boundless enthusiasm to every portion of
the country, to every honest interest of the
community, and pour a golden stream into
every industrious man's purse? Wouldn't
it, in a word, make our glorious game bird,
the American eagle, plume his mugs for a
loftier flight than ever, and cause him to ut.
ter a louder, bolder, shriller, calmer, and
more majestic and better-toned scrfain than
ever caine from his airy throat?
" We think so, and if our voice could bo
heard above the dm and the smoke of the
battle-fields in Pennsyh ania, Ohio, Indiana,
and Iowa, we should shout to them, ' Men
and brethren, peace, ho ! Let the Republic
have rest. Let the scalpbg-Vnifu of ven
geance and of blood be buried. Create not
another Frankenstein. Let not loose the
winds again. 'Accept the situation' Let
loyal men of the South in; put them upon
their honor and keep watch and guard ocr
them and everybody else and the Republic
with the sleeplessness of a thousand Ar
guses.' "We shall be able within ten days to form
a tolerably correct idea of the popuhr ver
dict upon the present controversy between
the President and Congress; and whatever
may be the decision, whether we rejoice at
or deplore it, it will be our duty, as it will

The Journal should remember that Tnr
ParsiDUtT bows to ho majority will of the
people whatever that verdict may be
whenever it is fairly, fully, and legally ex
pressed. We take this opportunity to suggest
to the Journal, and to all others whom
it jaiy concern, whatever may be the result
In the States of Pennsylvania, New York,
Ohio, Indiana, and other States, that the
issue presented to the country by The Purs
ing has not been fairly made in those states.
Many leading Democrats who went to Phila
delphia and pledged themselves as National
Union men. assumed the party name,
adopted and shouted for the great principles
laid down there in the platform of principles
and address, returned to their several States,
resumed the old machinery of the Demo
cratic party, took its name, and with an un
patriotic haste made up their slates for all
the offices, ignored Conservative Republi
cans, ar Democrats, and soldiers us the
candidates for the prominent State offices
ana nominated Peace Democrats and
Copperheads I Maine led the an. The
people's handwriting is on the wall. In
New York the Copperheads und copper
seekers defeated the gallant Dix, and thus
forced Conscrvotivo Republicans, if not
back Into the company of radicals, certain!)
into political silence and inactivity. What
is true In New York State is true m Penn
sylvania We protest against the assertion
thut the Issue made with Congress by The
Pbesidfnt baa been fairly presented to the
people in cither of these state. Uen. Dix
truly represented those principles, and if he
haJ been nominated for Governor of New
York would have been elected by an
overwhelming vote. Citmer, In Pennsjlva
nia, believes in the Administration, but the
people, especially the soldiers, War Demo
crats, and Conservative Republicans, do not
believe in him. After the National Union
Convention was holden In Philadelphia. .Mr
Cluieb should lave manifested patriotism
enough to have withdrawn An) good War
Democrat, like Pari,, or Conservative He-
publican, like Cow an, true repiesentntiesot
the Administration, would hate defeated
Geart by tweut) thousand majority.
Upon our own responsibility, without con
siiltatiou with any man or set of men, we
enter our solemn protest against Copper
heads letting themselves up, in a iritis like
this, as leaders of the great National Union
party. The people will not follow them.
They roust take back seats in this country
for the present. It is assumption on their
part to attempt to lead. The true issue is
cot fully and fairly made, and tho defeat of

THE SITUATION IX A NUT-SIIKM,.
The following Is an extract of a private
letter written In thU city few days ince by
a Republican a'nd'antfylavcry man from the

endorse every word of it:
"Tell my friend to insist upon a united
country. Our foreign relation demand it.
Admit loyal representatives, no matter from

fought by one party to carry eleven of them
out; by the other party topreient themrom
going on. Tho latter triumphed. The
former acknowledged themselves whipped
and defeated in their purpose and laid down
their arms, abolished slavery, asked pardon
of the Government for sins commlttod, but,
like inconsistent and ungenerous victors, we
proclaim that the eleven States are actually
out 1 and that the former insurgents arc still

and impolitic, but it Is unmanly and cowardly.

They clanked his chains in the ears of the

They uro now at a loss to know what to do.
They are looking around to find a nest with
an egg in it. In the mean time, finding
nothing else to do, they hate taken to lying
about Andrew Johnson and his political

assembled in Tancuil Uall last Wednesday,
and also the speeches of Gen. Jons L. Swift,

carefully perused. It will bo seen that Gen

A prize fight took place eight miles from
Boston on Wednesday morning, between
Iiiomas Uissey and George Rooke, both
Englishmen. The first-named is about twen-ty-eix
years of age, while the latter is a couple
of years joungcr. The fight was a stake of
$200, catch weight N either men had under
gono a regular course of training. Ileum's
weight was adjudged to be about one hun
dred and fifty pounds, while that of Rooke
was probably ten pounds lighter. On tho
fourteenth round IIisseVs secouds threw up
the spongo in token of defeat. Ruokk ex

' THE DEPARTMENTS.
Importautfio Claimant for Ihe Ad
Upon consultation between the accounting
otticcrs or tne uovemment in relation to cer
tain questions arising under tho act of July
28, 1H6G, it has been decided that where a
soldier served out a two-year enlistment and
then re-cnllstcd. was promoted and died in
the service as a commissioned officer, his
heirs are not entitled to additional bounty.
Nor are the heirs of a soldier entitled who
was transferred to tho navy and died in the
service. Parents of a deceased soldier, fan
der the regulations of the Secretary of War,
must Job in, the appliiiaUoa for tho tddition-

tho mother is dead, the fact should be stated
in the father's application. Parents of a de
ceased soldier wno reside In n foreign coun
try are not entitled to additional bounty.
Paragraph B of the regulations issued by the
Secretary of War declares " that tho act of
July z, ISliO, creates no rights orinucntancc
beyond those ested by tho law under which
theBe heirs received, or were entitled to re
reive, the original bounty;" and as by the
act of July 11, 18C2, such foreign heirs were
excluded from rccci ing the original bounty,
they cannot receive additional bounty.
Where parents of a sold.cr have been
divorced or hare been separated by mutual
consent, the same rules govern tne settle
ment of a claim for additional bounty as
have been heretofore followed iu the settle
ment orstinilar cases.
Where the claim of tho widow or a soldier
is pending for arrears of pay and bounty, tho
addit .onal bounty will be allowed In the sama
settlement, without additional application,

n hand to switch 'this brother of ours for

us, 'He must feel it,' and gratulate us that
we are not catching such a roasting and bast
ing. All of which reminds us of a favorite
story used often by Mr. Lincoln: A man, by
name Sampson Pewee, had the reputation of
being hen pecked. And yet he throve so
that ids friends resented the scandal in his
behalf, until one day Pence was noisily
switched out of his own house by his ram
paging wife. Then a friend remonstrated
with Pewee 'Sam! It's a shame to let her
do so. I can't stand it any longer. Yon
are not a man to let her go on so.' 'Oh,'
said Sampson Pewee, with a jolly knowing
wink, 'you don't understand. Theswitchlng
don't hurt mo a mite, and yon don't know
nhut a nowcrofgood itdoesmt Sarah Aim!'
"Wo bavo not seen or beard from Henry
Ward; but knowing him to be a man of faith
and prayer, and Christian hipe, we are
amused to see any m switching him let
them twitch. It don't hart him a mite, and
does them a power of good."

"Sir: Your letter of the 24th inatant. in
regard to applications for patent by jk; irons
rcBiuniff wumn tne stales tateiy m renelllon,
has been duly considered. The dnty of this
Department is to executo, not male, lawB.
Tho legislative power of the Government
designates lho ptraoiiB to whom and pre
scribes the conditions under uhlcli patents
shall be issued.
'! can neither add to nor dispense will the
rules prescribed by Congress by which the
granting of patents is to be governed. It is
of public interest that aa few restraints as
possible shull bo imposed upon theinventlvo
genius and productive capacity of the people.
The public is not so much Interested in who
shall invent or produce as that Invention and
production shall continue. In whatct cr por
tion of our common country au in entor may
reside, the community will be equally bene
fited by his discovery. Iiis local habitation
cau have no influence upon the value of his
contribution a to ttio industrial arts. I am not
aivare that any portion of the country or of
uiu pvuuiu uru now in insurrection against
the authority of tho General Government.
You wilt, therefore, In all'cases of applica
tions for patent rlchts. be covemed bv (lm
law. Kvery applicant who brings .himself
wimin tae prousiojisoftoe law ana complies
with its requirements is entitled to have his
application granted. Jn all cases you will
follow the luw, neither adding to its require
ments nor relaxing its restrictions or limita
tions "Very respectfully, jour obed't Fcrvant,
' O. II. JiauYMJiO, Secretary."

of the firm, arising out of the alleged informal

to him, and possessing a RcnBitIveorganIza.
