Fritn.r Horning, November 20, IS4S. PREPARE! The rank-and-file of the Radical par- j ty can now make up their minds to meet the issue of Negro Suffrage in a shape that is without disguise. It is authoritatively announced that Wil liam D. Kellev, member of Congress from Philadelphia, will at the next session of Congress, bring to a vote his measure to enforce Negro Suffrage throughout the Union. This is exact ly what was predicted by us Democrats ; during the recent campaign. We call to witness every man, "Republican" or Democrat, who listened to theeditor of this paper when on the stump, pri or to the late election. Did we not tell you that if Grant would be elected, such would be the case? And what : was your answer? "Oh no! we can't believe it. But if it -houkl turn out as you say, we will certainly vote with the Democrats!" Now, mark our words, oar prediction will be fulfilled, is vow in process of fid. fitment. A Convention of Negroes was held at Han i-burg, on Friday last, which was addressed by Morrow B. Lowry, State Senator from the Erie district, oneof the most prominent and able men in the Radical organization, lie advocated the propriety of at once con ferring the right to vote upon every uegro in the country. A committee of darkies waited upon Gov. Geary, who assured them of his sympathy with the objects of their convention. — Isaac I>. Gara, Gov. Geary's Deputy Secretary of the Commonwealth, wrote the following letter to the convention, which we copy verbatim from the State Guard of last Saturday : STATE or PK.NSSVLTAXIA, OFFICE OF SECRET ART OF COMMONWEALTH. - HARIIINBLRO, PA., NOV. 13. IS6B. J To Merryman Cupit and others, Com mittee : GENTLEMEN : Accept my thanks for your kind invitation to visit the Convention of Colored men now in session in the Wesleyan Union Church ofllarrisburg. Although I cannot be personally present, yet I shall be with you in spirit, heartily sympathizing, as I do, in your struggles for full re cognition as citizens of this State in common with your brethren of other States. Trusting that the day is not far distant when the ballot will be put into the hands of everij colored, man in Penn sylvania, I am, yours, very respectfully, ISAAC B. GAKA. Is any additional evidence needed to prove that it is the purpose of the Rad ical party to enfranchise the negro throughout the whole country ? Are you prepared to endorse this move ment, "Republicans" of Bedford coun ty ? Are you ready to degrade anil de base the franchise by extending the number of ignorant and licentious voters? Is there not already enough corruption, purchased voting, intimi dation and fraud in our elections? If you are not, prepare for i as soon as possible! Prepare to resist it, or you will lie forced to acquiesce in its accom plishment. The election is over. We have no part izan purpose to subserve, no voles to make for any cadidate, by an appeal like this. We only state what we believe to be the God's truth, and only ask you to consider it in a spirit of candor and fairness. We ask you to watch Congress, which will soon again be in session, and see for yourselves, if what we say turns out to be true or false. HOLDING THEM TO THEIR PROMISE. A convention of Negroes was held at Harrisburg, the other day, which adop ted a series of resolutions demanding the right of suffrage and perfect equal ity, in civil condition, with the white man. These resolutions were evident ly written by someofthe white negroes in the Radical party, and the conven tion was, doubtless, gotten up by the ultra Radical politicians, for the pur pose of forcing Negro Suffrage on their party, and through it, upon the coun try. We are assured in the preamble to the resolutions adopted by this con vention, that "the Rebpublican party "have given us additional assurances "from time to time of their determina "tion, when once they had the power, "to carry out every line of the Declar "ation of Independence,and make good "every promise made by the party in "the complete elevation and enfian "chisement of colored men wherever "they may reside within the national "domain." fn view of these "assurances," the resolutions demand that the Radical party shall now confer the right of suf frage upon the blacks in all the States. The "colored brethren" have deter mined to hold the white Radicals to their promises. We think that, for once in their history, the latter will be true to their pledges. They want the negro as a tool, and will, therefore, try to enfranchise him. 4 A EI FORMA. The telegraph is very mute iu re gard to the result of the election in the Golden State. The Democrats have elected two of the three Congress men, and it may turn out, in the end, that Seymour has carried the State, The vote is very close. BE KUHI:ItODV. In the worltl'd bro*d field of battle. In the bivouac of life, Be not like dnmb driven cattle, Be a htro in the strife. If the nian recently elected President of the United States ehooes to mark out a course for himself, independent of the Republican party, he has the opportunity to do so. We are not a ware that he has given any pledges which hold him to an observance of Radical policy, and if he goes into the presidential chair with hea i and heart devoted to constitutional government and the best interests of his country, ; however Radical politicians may howl and threaten, he will find himself shs tained by a power that all the influ ences and appliances of that party can not shake. If the hero of Fort Donel soti, Pittsburg Landing and the Wil derness, has the .-tuff in him, the mor al courage and patriotism, to serve his country instead of a party led by gradu ates in the schools of fanaticism and sectionalism, he has a glorious chance to do so. He is pledged to "no poli cy." He gave no broad assent to the Chicago Platform. He once declared, long before his nomination, that he did not desire and would not accept the office unless as president of the whole people. Let him recur to those early utterances and conform his con duct to the policy they imply ; let him, in his administration of Fedefal af fairs, consult, not the wishes of the politicians and demagogues of the par ty that elected him, but the substan tial interests and constitutional rights of the masses North and South ; let him, in short, be a moral "hero in the strife," and he will find himself sus tained by the people of the country and win a renown before the glory of which all his military exploits will pale. LIARS OK KMUA. Suppose the country take the Radi cals at their word—suppose that they are taken asa truth-telling party, and that they mean what they say—sup pose, in short, that when they charter ize us as a disloyal party, as the rebel Democracy , as the party in sympathy with reliefs and traitors, they speak their deliberate convictions, and desire to lie so understood by the American people, what an all-powerful and in vincible army of rebels and traitors we would have in our midst! If Radical editors know the plain meaning of plain words, they are eith er a pack of graceless liars, or else they judge their readers to be fools. The recent Presidential election shows that nearly five millions of votes woro actually polled. Of those the De mocracy cast two and a quarter mil lions. But in Viginia, Mississippi and Texas elections were not held. Had the people of these three States been permitted to vote, they would have given a majority of at least 1 ">O,OOO. Then take the number disfranchised in the States of Missouri, Tonne-see, West Virginia, North and South Carolina, Alabama, Arkansas and Florida, ag gregating at least and we find that if Radical editors tell the truth , the rebel army will outnumber that of the | loyal army by at least a quarter of a million. THE FORTY-FIRST IHMiRKSS. The Congress which will date its ex istence from the inauguration of Gen. Grant, will contain at least ninety Democrats. The present Congress musters but fifty Democrats and Con servatives. This destroys the Radical two thirds in the forty-first Congress. II ence as much villany as possible may be expected to be crowded into the ex piring session of the fortieth Congress. Kelly will at once bring up his Negro Sutfrago bill, for he dares not trust it to the Congress elected this year. Snap judgment will be the Radical order of the day. Mark it! THE Radicals of Georgia have held a meeting, at which it was resolved to exclude, if possible, the participation of negroes in politics, they having be come fully satisfied from the results of the late election that negro suffrage will not work. Had these scalawags arrived at this conclusion twelve months ago, much of the trouble that now prevails in the South would have been obviated, and that disturbed sec tion would have been in the enjoyment of comparative peace. We have, in this action of the Georgia Radicals, a striking contrast with the proposed action of the Northern Radicals.— Having had a fair opportunity of prac tically testing impartial suffrage in the South, the "carpet-baggers" are going dead up against it, while in the North the leaders of the party are making it a pet measure. OKtOON. This State goes for Seymour by 200 majority. Good for Oregon. She is Democratic now and will remain -o.

It is now conceded that Seymour and Blair have carried the State of Oregon by a small majority. This renders it certain tiiat Gen. Grant has been elec ted by military violence and fraud. The Electoral vote, if constituted ac cording to the will of the people, would stand as follows: FOR SEYMOUR. i New York 33 New Jersey 7 I < )regon 3 AH the old slave States 116 Total 169 Whole number Electoral votes 317 Of this Seymour and Blair have se cured a majority upon a fair and honest vote. Who supposes that North Caro lina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Mis souri and West Virginia are for ; GRANT? It is safe to say that no one man in five, unobstructed by any out i side interference, would vote for him ; yet, by military violence and by the sending to the polls, under its auspices, of hordes of illegal negro voters, these | States have been declared carried for ; him. Their votes, together with those of Mississippi, Virginia and Texas, which, by a pure act of military des potism, were not allowed to vote at all, ! decided the contest. The result of all ; may be summoned up as follows: SEYMOUR was elected by the legal J electors and white people of the Uni ted States. GRANT was not elected, but by the power of the bayonet, sending several hundred thousand negroes to the polls, and keeping hack several hundred thousand whites, he was declared chosen. This is all there is of it.—Cin cinnati Enquirer. THE Lancaster Intelligencer contains some very judicious observations in re gard to the National Democratic Com mittee, and suggests that the chair of the committee he filled by a more effi cient incumbent than the present one. Democrats generally will agree with the Intelligencer. Mr. Aug. Belmont, doubtless, is a very shrewd financial operator in Wall street, and is a faith ful agent of the Rothschilds and other foreign hanker-, hut he is totally out of place as chairman of the Democratic Committee. He is more concerned about his per cents, than about the in terests of the Democratic party, or of the country at large. A successful coup among the bulls and the hears of Wall street, is of more consequence to him than a Democratic triumph.— While he is attending to the sales of his stocks and bonds, he has very lit tle of his valuable time to devote to the cause to which he professes alle giance. He has hchl the po.-' iin far too long already. He does not pos sess the confidence of any considerable portion of the Democratic party. At the same lime his personal excellence and amiability are freely owned, as well as his orthodoxy. The number of children who attend school in the United States is about 5,000,000, and the number of female teachers is about 100,000. The pupils use 20,000,000 books, which cost $18,• 750,000. England's experiments with so-called improvements in fire-arms havecost her $140,000 during the last five years. TOI ABE TO PAY THE PKH'EX. A New York Mongrel organ, an or gan that leads the "conservative" wing of the poverty-creating party, says, in a late editorial, that "the sum of $25,- 000 per year is too small to support the President in proper style ; it should be at least SIOO,OOO to meet the necessary expenditures as Chief Executive of the nation. President Grant should not be compelled to live in the cheap boarding house style." How do you like this talk, tax-payer? This is the idea of the New York Time*. This is a specimen of "Republicanism," the plain, unpretending simplicity which, we have all been told, was the strength of all good governments, and which the leaders of the great reform party j pretended that they desired to restore. I The sum of §25,000 per year is only sufficient to enable the newly elected to live in cheap boarding house style. In other words, the style in which Mr. Johnson now lives, the style which tlie "late lamented" enjoyed, is not good enough for General Grant, and the now groaning tax-payers must prepare to sweat out bigger drops of blood, that the new idol shall roll in the luxury of a pampered monarchist. Go ahead with your "reforms" gentle men ; not only give your new idol the $100,(KM) per year, but move to give it tj him for life, and move also to keep him in office during that life. I)o not bother your white slaves, who are to pay the price of all this in bigger taxa tion, with any more election farces. Bet up at once a permanent despotism, increase your army, and then apply the screws to the thirty millions of white population, and see how much they will stand.— Day-Booh. WEST VIRGINIA uesrotEsx. [From the Greenbrier Independent.] We have been surprised more than once at lite want of information abroad, even ;n the adjoining States, concern ing West Virginia despotism. it is a fact of easy demonstration, that even the Southern States, ruled as they are by the sword, are more free to-day than the always loyal State of West Virginia. In this State there are not less than twenty-five thousand disfranchised citizens. No, not "citizens!" for the amended constitution of the State de clares that they can never become citi zens; although they were horn on her soil, have lived here all their lives, and are heaviiy taxed to support the muni cipal, State, and national govern ments. They arc aliens on their na tive soil, as lai as the State constitu tion can make them aliens. In this county alone there are 1,400 disfranchised men, comprising the wealth, intelligence, public spirit, and moral worth oi Greenbrier. In this town, with a population of 1,200 there are only eight voters ; and yet in this county there is not one dis loyal man, excepting the iiadicals, who are all disloyal, in West Virginia there are not less than 25,000 men who cannot hold any office, sit on a jury, or teach a public school. In West Virginia there are not less than 25,000 men wiio cannot obtain judgment on old debts due them, or enforce contracts. In West Virginia the taxes fur coun ty and township purposes are eight times heavier than bofr©tho war. In West Virginia we have five paid officers now lor one before the war. In West Virginia the salaries of county officers are double, and s me of them treble, of what they were before the war. In west Virginia, especially in the border counties, the offices arc, with few exceptions, filled by the most ig norant and vicious of the population. In West Virginia three men in each county, known as the County Board | of Registration, are actually licensed, by an act of the Legislature, to enter on record that their fellow-citizens are : perjurers! In West Virginia, the County Boards j of Registration have entire control ol 1 every office in the State. The Board j of Registration of Ohio County can unseat Governor Boreman by merely | scratching his name from the list of | registered voters. The Board of lteg i istration of Monroe County can unseat Judge Nat. Harrison in the same | way. No man can hold office unless j he is a voter. No man can be a voter ■ unless he is registered. No man can • register, or remain registered, without i the consent of the county hoards of | registration. Scratch Boreman's name j or Harrison's name from the registry, | and the sceptre of power drops from i their nerveless grasp. Did such a state of things ever before ! exist in any civilized community? i Has as mean, contemptible, sneaking, ; cowardly, brutal a despotism as that i of West Virginia ever before rejoiced ! the hearts of devils, or called for the | avenging bolts of heaven? "Mountaineers always free!" Oh, what a mockery of a noble sentiment! What a brazen-faced lie! There is no freedom in these mountains, except the freedom of ignorance and villany to lord it over intelligence and honesty. WANT OF TOLERATION.--Gen. But ler, in his late speech at Lowell, in ac knowledgment of the greetings of his fellow-citizens, after dealing in the most truculent menaces to the South, wound up by saying: "If the Repub lican party is true to the great Demo cratic principles of Jefierson and oth ers, it will hold the government for a generation to come." In theinaugural address of Mr. Jefferson, at his first term of office, is this passage: "If there be any among us who would wish to dissolve this Union, or to change its republican form, let them stand, undisturbed, as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left free to combat it." If the Republican party proposes to act on the "Democratic principles of Jefferson," it will exer cise at least as much toleration towards those whose only offense is voting for the Democratic ticket as he proposed towards those whoseaiins wore against the Union and a republican form of government—which no one charges against the South in the late canvass.— Baltimore Sun.

WE know of no musical instrument for which there is a greater demand than for the American Organ, manufactured by S. D. A 11. W. Smith, at Boston, Mass., the reputation of which is based upon its solid merit. The internal construction differs from all other in struments, being on a superior princi ple, while the absence of complication renders it less liable to get out of or der. The action is so delicate, that its response to the touch is as ready as the Pianoforte, making it desirable for light and quick music as well as for that which is connected and sustained. We trust our readers will take early oppor tunity to become acquainted with these fine instruments, as no home is com plete without a musical instrument.— Boston Traveller.

Every family should be supplied with these Bitters, at whatevercostor trouble it may be to obtain them. Be careful that you get the genuine, and that you are not imposed upon by a spurious ar ticle.
