' was almost about to say " that the j
freedman was equal with each, but he
fails to enunciate the sentiment, and we
fairly infer that in his opinion the sacri

those of all others. This is the deliberate j
language of the Senator, in a studied at- j
tempt to fiatter and praise the mechanic, j
It was called out during i'.ie discussion !
upon a bill for the relief of certain naval
contractor?, in which the theme chosen i
for his elaboration, was the value of the j
American mechanic in the recent civil j
struggle. He believes the Negro is equal '
to any white man, and here lie expresses j
his conviction that his services are greater I
than those of the men who lore the brunt '(
of the light for the Union. The Negro alovj j
the mechanic, the equal of all white
men, the Negro entitled to vote, to sit on

Alpha and Omega of his daily thoughts,

Ci.N:siENT ix Disunion. In Congress
on the 3J day of March, 1SC2, Mr. Ilol
raan, of Indiana, (Democrat,) offered the
following resolution :
ll'Solced, That in the judgment of this
House, the unfortunate civil War into
which the Government of the United
States has been forced by the treasonable
attempt of ihe Southern Secessionists to
destroy the Union, should not be prosecu
ted for any other purpose than the resto
ration (if the authoiity of the Constitution ;
and that the welfare of the whole people
of the "United States is permanently in
volved in maintaining the present form of
Government under the Constitution with- i
out modification or change.
The ditunionists defeated this resolution
by a vote of GO to 9. Every Democrat
voted for the resolution. Thaddeus Ste- j
vcr.s and Mr. Speaker Grow, by this bold
act avowed their deliberate intention as
early as 18G"2, to carry out their radical
and revolutionary programme of disunion.
Did not President Johnson speak truth
fully when he said tiiej- were disuniouists ? j
Tin: Good Wui;k Co:.rn:Nci-:r. The
Marshal of the Western District, the j
Postmaster at Pittsburgh and Harrisburg, j
being rank disunionist, have been removed I
by President Johnson, and patriotie J

I places. It is hoped and believed that the
President will continue to wield the axe
ui itil every disunionist is removed from
Opinion of Stephen A. Docoeas.
In the discussion before the people of Illi
nois just previous to his last election to
the United States Senate, Judge Douglas
" I hold that a negro is not, and never
ought to Ge a citizen of the United States.
I hold that this Government was made
upon a white basis, by white men, for the
benefit of white men and their posterity
forever, and should be administered by
white men and none others. I do not be
lieve that the Almighty made the noro
capable of self-government.
"Now I say to you my fellow-citizens, i
that in my opinion, the signers of the
Declaration of Independence had no refer
ence to the Negro whatever when they
declared all men equal. They desired fo
express by that phrase, w hite men of Eu
ropean birth, and descent, and had no
reference to the Negro, the savage Indians
or other inferior or degraded races. At
that time every one of the thirteen Colo
nies was a slave-holding colony, and every
signer of the Declaration represented a
slave-holding constituency, and wc know
that no one of them emancipated his slaves,
much less offered citizenship to them when
they signed the Declaration."
C2 A large Democratic mass meeting
was held on Wednesday evening at the
Academy of Music, Prooklyn, at which
resolutions were passed in support of the
President's policy of reconstruction.
Speeches were made by General Rousseau,
of Kentucky, Hon. John Van Puren,
The Secretary of the Treasury has de
termined on the reduction of all mutilated

Foreigners to le Put Down Iy Jieyrocs.
Every adopted citizen fhould examine
the Negro '-Civil Rights" bill and. the
Veto message thereon and see how the
Disuniouists have made a most outrageous
and unjust disc; initiation against all for
eigners and in favor of the negroes.
Every German, Irishman, Englishman,
Scotchman, Welshman, or emigrant from
any foreign country, no matter how intell
igent, is required to wait live years before
he can secure citizenship, anil then only
Uy showing that he is of good moral char
acter, attached to the principles of the
Federal Constitution, and well disposed
to the order and happiness of this coun
try. In addition to this, he must then
swear to support the Government.
The "Civil Rights" bill does not alter
or amend these requirements from foreign
ers, but it takes into immediate citizen
ship the whole iiecro population with all
its ignorance and tlegredation without an
if" or a ''but ;" without proof of moral
character, mental fitness, or attachment to
the principles of the Government. No
questions are to be asked the negroes, and
no oaths, qualifications or requirements
are to be demanded of thein. The most
) ignorant ant uegraueu negro in ine oeiuin
or North without knowing that there is'
such a thing as a Constitution ami not
caring whether there is or not is thus, in
an instant, without any requirement from
him, granted privileges which the most
intelligent foreigners must wait live years
to secure, and then only at trouble, ex
pense, proof of character, and the taking
of the most solemn obligations.
Notwithstanding these odious discrim
inations against every class of foreigners,
every so-cailed Republican newspaper in
Pennsylvania now supporting; .John W.
Geary for Governor, h;.s declared in favor
of the Negro "Civil Rights" bill, and ex
pressed joy at its "passage" through the
Rump Congress by disunion majorities!
Intelligent adopted citizens can thus see
the outcropping of that Know Nothing
ism, which was the germ of the present
mis-named Republican party. They can
plaiul- see that this lightning citizenship
conferred upon ignorant negroes is to neu
tralize their influence : and, even after un
dergoing their probation of live years, to
deprive them of a fairly earned share in
the government of" themselves ! Can any
foreigner of any nationality support the
candidate of such a party ? We sincere
ly hope not. PatrU.t ec I'nion.
A Kevekeni) Rlit -tan. When a cler
gyman turns politician, he is like a Welsh
liver after a flood ; the greatest exempli
fication of this wc know of is that vile
rogue and ruffian 1 'arson Iliowniow, of
Tennessee. And yet the shameless rene
gade and demagogue, has the audacity to
speak of President Johnson as being "a
double dealer." Put the Louisville Journal
comes to the rescue and fairly takes the
rhinocerous skin, thick as it is, from the
bones of the J ennessee ruliian. it savs i
truly that no other State was so aillicted
and di-graced and cursed with such an
unmitigated and unirdtigable, such an un
redeemed and irredeemable blackguard as
her Chief Magistrate. He is a parody, a
caricature, a broad burlesque on all pos
sible governors. TJiey say there is a lire
in him, but it is hell lire, every particle of
if. Though he is but a single swine,
there are as many devils iu him as there
were in the whole herd that "n-n violently
down a steep place into the sea." His
heart is nothing but a hissing knot of i
pers, rattlesnakes, cobra and cotton
moths, lie never argued a question in his
life, approaching no subject but with
fierce, bitter, coarse, low and vulgar ob
jurgations. His tongue should be bored
through and through with his own steel
pen, heated red hot.
This man, as we have said, calls him
self a clergyman. He preaches, prays
arid exhorts, draws down his face, drops
the corners of hrs mouth, and undertakes
to look sanctimonious. And yet lie seems
always trying in his pulp.it discourses to
see under how thin a disguise he can ven
ture to curse, and swear, and blaspheme.
He can't offer up a prayer in the house of
God without telling the Lord what an in
fernal scoundrel, damned thief, or cursed
vagabond, this, that or the other neighbor
is. From his youth up to his old age he
has had no personal controversies without
attacking the wives, fathers, mothers,
grandfathers, grandmothers, brothers, sis
ters, children, uncles, aunts and nephews
of his opponents.
GvF Gov. Curtin, Ex-Gov. Johnston,
Ex-Gov. Ritner, 17. S. District Attorney
Carnahan of Pittsburg, Hon. Andrew
Stuart of Fayette county, and a score of
other moderate Republicans in this Stale
have declared in favor of President John
son, and against Sumner, Stevens ec Co.
They can't go Geary because he is the
candidate of the disunion majority in
Congress, and would refuse to support
the President's reconstruction policy if
C3" A Nashville letter-writer tells of a
poor boy who walked seventy-five miles
from his home in Hancock count', Tenn.,
to Knoxville, with his old mother to get
something that might keep them from
starving. When they arrived they had
no means of procuring food, and the boy
was so exhausted that he fell prostrate
upon the pavement. lie had served as a
Union soldier in a Tennessee regiment.
Part of his business in Knoxville was to
prefer claims for money still due him for
his services as a soldier.
