'I1 he Jubilant Democracy.
Since tlie great and bloody defeat ofHooker at CUancellorsviile the Dcmorcacy have had nothing so well calculated to elevate then spirits as the defection of President Johnson, and his confession of faith and formal intro duction to the copperhead church on the 22d hist. They had burned gunpowder over Ills veto message, and thrown up their caps from very joy that he had headed ofl the “radicals,” and tiiat the “niggers” were likely to be left out in the cold, hut the speech of Thursday last from the balcony of the White House, the condemnation by the Executive of the men who hud sustained him, as traitors, the en dorsement by the President of the heathenish doctrine of a “white man’s govemmemt,” and the shameful denial by implication of the plain doctrine of the Declaration of Independ ence, ware needed to fill the cup of Democrat ic rejoicing, and to make their jubilation per fect and without allay. Seriously, however, who are Uie parties now rejoicing over the recent developments at Washington? Who are the men that burn gunpowder over tbe defeat of a great measure of Congress? Who are the men that now throw up their caps for Andrew Johnson, talk of him as a second Jackson, and laud him as the saviour of his country ? The answer to these questions is not diffi cult to determine, and, it is eminently suggestive. The men who now rejoice the loudest are the same who rejoiced at the de feat of Burnside at Fredericksburg, of Hooker at Chanoellorsville, of Pope at the 2d Bull Xtun; who wore long faces when Grant was crowding Lee in the Wilderness,before Peters burg and Richmond, and when Lee surrender ed. They are the same men who at Chicago resolved the war a failure, who opposed every measure of the war, who voted against Lin coln, who denounced him as a tyrant, who said Andrew Johnson was drunk when in augurated, and who gave nerve to the arm of Booth oil the fatal fourteenth of April last.— They are the same men who constituted the Golden Circles, who cried down the govern ment credit, who appologi2cd for treason, who defended the right of secession, who hob nobbed with the British minister to influence his government to recognize the Independence of the South, to break the blockade, and to afl'ord material aid to the.rcbels hr arms. More than this—every copperhead paper in the loyal States is now in extacies. The Ban gor Democrat—once destroyed by a mob for Us treason—crowns the Presidential brow with a laurel wreath; the Aryus, which in 1831 proposed disunion as an easy and proper solution of the difficult question before the na tion, fills its columns with the speeches of Messrs. Johnson, Seward and Beecher, with out a drawback upon its adoration of their au thors ; the Advertiser, which has been more honest became more outspoken in its rebel sympathies, blazons its columns with a dou ble leaded leader, and even the New York New#, edited by a rebel General, and the ac knowledged Northern organ of the Southern traitors, is ready to crown Andrew Johnson as the best patriotr-cxcept, perhaps, Jeff. Davis —known to history. This is not. ail. A voice comes up to U3 borne on the balmy breezes of the South. No dissent to the copperhead rejoicing is heard from that quarter, unless it comes from those deluded men wlio, thinking more of their country than of their State, refused tc^tyow their heads to the rebel blast. The men’ i?ho were recently leading rebel armies, now re gal'd Andrew Johnson as ihe God-sent man of the age. Intelligence from Cherleston shows great jubilation there. Gov. Orr claims that liis suggestions uiu muen 10 prouuce receni re sults. The papers that have been tilled with treason, the men who have fought the battles of the rebellion, the leaders whose hands have been clutched at the nation’s throat, the mur derers of our brave boys, the assassins of the lamented martyr President, all these are jubi lant ; all these aie in high feather, and though Mr. Johnson spoke opprobriously of the Da vises, the Toombses and the Slidclls, they will all forgive him, and rejoice that he has spok en ; that if they are to hang lie is willing for the Stevenses and Sumners and the Plitilipes to dangle on the other end of the same cord. In a word, while all hitherto loyal hearts are made tick and filled with sadness in view of what has recently transpired, while patriots mourn and friends of their country weep, ev ery rebel rejoices, every copperhead is jubilant; and pandemonium may reasonably be presum ed to be decked with flags and engaged in a hellish carnival of rejoicing. The duty of the trae men of the country was never plainer than now. Trae, they have been grossly deceived, severely cheated, and basely betrayed. But the cause in which they are engaged is the cause ul right. It is in har mony with justice, with equal rights and with true pi ogress. False friends may betray, but they cannot destroy Ibis cause. It will tri mnph, and unborn gcuerations will rejoice in the blessings its consummation will secure to them, when the uames of those who seek to destroy it shall have perished from human re membrance. The President’s Speech. When Mr. Seward rose last night in Cooper Institute to defend the President, he did not know how greatly the President had just of fended. In the singular and in some respects unfortunate speech which Mr. Johnson made yesterday afternoon in the White House grouuus, he struck right and loft, and in his zeal to parry attacks which have unnecessari ly irritated him, hit friends and foes indiscrim inately, and even gave himself one or two knocks which will cause him, if we are not mistaken, more suffering thau the worst blows of those whom he chooses to think his ene mies. It is a matter for regret that Mr. Johnson should so far allow his reseutment to get the butter of his judgment, as to forget, what Mr. Seward very truly observed last night, and what all judicious men in Congress and in the country constantly bear in mind, that the difference between the President and certain leading Republicans is a question of methods for obtaining the same end, and not one of dif ferent ends. It is no excuse for the President, that those whom he singled out by name, for personal vituperation, had already offended against him in a similar manner. When Mr. Sumner, recently, spoke in the Senate of the President’s policy as “ whitewashing,” he on ly shocked the country’s sense of propriety thereby, and felt himself obliged, as quickly as possible, to explain and apologize for liis rude ness; when Mr. Stevens in the House used that foolish phrase about a British king losing his head, which appeals to have so greatly and needlessly irritated Mr. Johnson, the whole country exclaimed against it as an indecency, and even Mr. Stevei.s must have felt that he bad greatly injured his own cause by such words. But the same sentiment of propriety and respect which was shocked by the intemiierate words of Messrs. Sumner and Stevens, is still more outraged by the uncalled lor aud offen sive retort of Mr. Johnson. We are not of those who hold it improper lor the President to speak to the people; we were not offended at Mr. Lincoln’s speeches, and shall not find fault with Mr. Joluison if he is moved to an nounce or defend liis policy in a speech. But the President of the United States ought not to descend into the pit; and instead of calling names and indulging in personalities, he would have done well to imitate the noble pa tience with which Abraham Lincoln bore far bitterer gibes, far ruder attacks, from tlie same men. pi'or the shocking and unseemly imputation Mr. Johnson chose to bring against Messrs. Stevens, Suumer aud others opposed to his policy, that “ their intention was to incite as sassination,” we trust that lie will make haste to apologize, not merely to them, hut to the country, which lie lias most grievously in sulted. Sucli words as lie uttered on that head would not be tolerated in the hastiest stump speech- They ere too ill judged and impulsive for us to think or write patiently about them; and we count it no slight mis fortune for the nation that its Chief MagU trate should have spoken in this style. We do not think the President would him self care to have the political sentiments of his yestei-day’s speech discussed. It will lomi no part of his record, for he must already wish that it had never been spoken. He said noth ing new, nothing which he has not before de clared. Not one—not even Mr. Stevens—has doubted his desire to do right, as he saw the right. And we prefer, in discussing his poli cy, to take for its exponents his previous speeches and messages, in which he lias talk ed more plainly and temperately, and display ed more completely his ideas and purposes on all parts of the question of reconstruction.— Standing upon those expressions of himself, i he occupied a strong position, to which the : whole country was rapidly rallying; while j such a petulant outbreak as that of yesterday can only repel sympathy and support. The above is from tlie_N. Y. Evening Post of Friday. The Post lias steadily supported Mr. Johnson’s poli-y of reconstruction, has been severe u|>oii such men as Mr. Stevens and Mr. Sumner, approved the leading objec tions of the President to the Frecdmen’s Bu reau Bill, and accepted the veto as upon the whole a wise document. The above shows that the President 1ms grossly shocked his best friends. Senator Fessenden. Our distinguished Senator confessedly the leading man of the United States Senate—is laying his friends and the friends of the coun try under everlasting obligations by the man ner in which he defends popular rights, de fends the rights of the people’s representatives and rebukes the insolence of oflicial power. lie has had the good fortune to come in for a gross attack from the New York World, but abuse from that quarter will only endear him to the hearts of all loyal men. Mr. Fessen den’s speech on Friday was a masterly effort, —dear, cutting, sharp as a Damascus blade, and yet as dignified as the orations of Cicero, lie is not the man to quail before the menaces of the throne, to yield to the blandishments of power, or tamely to submit to the slightest in fringements of his own or the people’s rights. All honor to Maine’s distinguished Senator. Portland Academy.—We would com mend this Institution, which is now under charge of Mr. Files, to the attention of pa rents, who wish to prepare their sons for col lege, or to give their daughters a superior edu cation. The manner in which Mr. F. has con ducted the Academy has given the greatest satisfaction, both to parents and pupils. The next term commences on the 5th of March. ITEMS OF STATE NEWS. Messrs. Talbot, Bust & Co., of Bock port, have put in store 6000 tons of ice, the few past weeks. The prospect of the ioe trade the coming season, it is said, is not as good as our dealers were anticipating, owing to large quan tities having been secured iu the Middle States. —[Belfast Age. ty The heaviest fall of snow which has oc curred this season, in t 'ais vicinity as least, was experienced here last week. Eighteen inches on a level were added to our former stock, ren dering travelling a very unpleasant business.— [Aroostook Pioneer. The Ellsworth Journal says that Bioh ard Higgins, of Trenton, has been appointed Lighthouse keeper at Winter Htrbor,by Col lector Thomas. Mr. Higgins served honorably in the 1st Maine Heavy Artillery, and was se verely wounded while facing the enemy at Spottsylvania, Va. That treasonable sheet, the Bangor Democrat, which opposed the war from first to last, and denounced Lincoln as a tyrant, en dorses President Johnson’s veto in a double leaded leader. Hon. Sidney Perham and Hon. John Lynch have both laid us under obligations for valuable bound volumes of Public Documents. The Argus, from motives apparent to every one, attributes an article in the Press to the new postmaster. The writer of that arti cle feels highly complimented to have his pro duction attributed to so graceful a writer as Judge Davis, but truth requires us to say that not a word has appeared in our columns from that gentleman for months; not apolit.cal word lor years. [jjf The men who are burning, gunpowder over President Johnson’s veto, never burned a grain of that article over a Union victory.— They arc the men who always wore long faces when the rebels got badly used. The Calais Advertiser says tho gang sawmill in Princeton, belonging to Messrs. Charles Waite & Co, was destroyed by fire on Sunday morning, 18th inst. Also a building belonging to Mr. B. Young, occupied as a shin gle mill by Mr. Win. Sargent, who owned the machinery. The loss sustained by the Messrs. Waite was about $6000, on which there was par tial insurance. fcjjF“Tlie Governor has nominated W. W.

So he has—notmincing his words, to be sure ! But must the President of the United States descend to blackguardism because he is sharply criticised ! Much worse, must he impugn the motives of the loyal masses must he disgrace his high office, because Con gress chooses to exercise its Constitutional right to determine the time and conditions of the restoration to political power of States lately in rebellion ?” yr”The Anson Advocate learns that Robert B. M. Bray, son of George Bray, formerly of that town now of Elgin, Minnesota, was frozen to death on the night of Jan. 19th last, in at tempting to go from where he was teaching school, home to his brother’s, across the hills. It was a terribly dark windy night, and very cold. He was 25 years old. yfOn Friday morning, says thb Bangor Times, wliile passing over a rough place in the town of Aurora, some 18 miles distant from Bangor, the coach belonging to the Air Line stage route, upset while tilled with passengers, injuring several of the inside passengers, though not dangerously so. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. VSTlt is well understood here, says a Wash ington dispatch, that the Richmond Examiner was resuscitated by order of the President in direct opposition to the desire of Gen. Grant. iSr*ln a private note from Washington, an intelligent friend writes—boforethe late speech of the President—“the breach is complete and hopeless, I judge, between the President and his late party. We are sold out aud betrayed completely.” ftifMr. Vatlandigham has tired a hundred guns in Dayton in honor of the Veto, and hung out a flag from liis window. Which flag the dispatch omits to state.—[Tribune. The Union members of tft Ohio Legis lature unanimously indorse the action of Con gress on the Freedmen’s Bureau bill, and con demn the President for vetoing it. The Savannah Republican, in noticing the departure of the 90th New York Volun teers, significantly says: “ The regiment, though small, made a fine appearance as they marched down Bay street, headed by their drum corps, the national colors floating in the cheerful sunlight. Thus day by day the last vestige of military power is being withdrawn from our State, but it will no doubt be a long lime before we shall witness the total with drawal cf the military from our borders. One thing is certain, it would not be promotive of the safety and welfare of Unionists to do so." A starving corset-maker thus vented her miserable complaint: “Shame that I should be without bread—I that have stayed the stom achs of thousands.” IkifThe New York City Council propose to bridge I>roadway at various points, to secure tlio safe crossing of citizens, who are now in imminent danger from the throng of carriages. The total span of the great bridge at Cincinnati over the Ohio will be 1057 yards. yr* Similia similibus curantur. Statesmen, poets, lawyers and soldiers now unite in the opinion that the punishment for “High Trea son” should be “Sour Apple Trees on." Bir'We have now within the American pos sessions, west of the Rocky Mountains, three States aud five Territories, embracing an area of more than one million square miles, the whole of which may be considered a mining Country. Si if Those are very cautious gentlemen who insist that it is unwise to force an issue upon the President. We should like to know if the issue is not one of his own making, and if the loyal men in Congress can decline the issue he lias forced upon them, or dodge it, without be | owning, as Mr. Pesscnden has it, mere “no I bodies T* Letter from the Federal Capital. Washington, Feb. 23,1S6C. To the Editor of the Press : This has been a week of almost unparalleled excitement. Monday was a day more event ful and memorable, a day of darker presage than has fallen upon us since that on which Abraham Lincoln breathed his last. Dining the early hours of the afternoon, while Sena tor Yates of 111. was making a noble aud most tearless plea for universal and impartial suf frage, a message from the President was an nounced. Its contents were soon known.— Those oracular responses which of late had given the Union men in Congress so much uneasiness, the growing intimacy between the President and sundry Democratic aud even copperhead politicians, may have lessened the astonishment, but certainly did not abate the indignation and disgust with which that as tounding document was received. The Union Senators hastily consulted together and were generally prepared to vote on the bill imme diately, hut an adjournment was finally effect ed. Tuesday morning brought a scene of such anxiety and excitement as I have seldom wit nessed. The galleries of the Senate were ear ly crowded to the utmost, and the vestibules in tbe rear of them were thronged with anx ious crowds utterly unable to get within or ev en near the doom. Garrett Davis, whose pro slavery ideas have run to the very verge of lu nacy, appeared as champion and spokesman tor the President. Ot his rambling and dis jointed harangue I will only only quote one sentence—a sentence of profound significance even though it did come through, I will not say from him. “ The white people of the South are to be the owners, the colored people the tillers of the soil. Such is their destiny.” A volume could not more exactly describe the condition of serfdom and villainage to which the late slaveholders are determined to reduce the freedmen, if indeed it be right to call them freedmen. Nor need I speak of that noble, that grand effort of Senator Trumbull, in which he sifted the illogical reasonings, the amazing assertions and assumptions of the ve to message till very little of them was left.— Nor yet will I dwell upon the final and humil iating failure of the bill, with its suggestive incidents and instructive lessons to all who would be truly and faithfully represented in Congress. But, surely It is something, it is much, that In this trying emergency five-sixths of the Un ion Senators stood firm and resolute, and that the House asserted its rights and dignity in a manner not liable to be misunderstood. Nor can I believe that the spirit of the people will fail to manifest itself in a way that shall sup port and strengthen their faithful representa tives in both branches of Congress. The meeting called to indorse the “Presi dent’s policy” in this city, was held on Thurs day, and was of course numerously attended. If the President is not already fully and irre vocably decided upon his present course, he might, one would suppose, be admonished by the manifest effect of his recent act, and the sort of men it is bringing around him. I be lieve the secessionists of Washington have not been in such excellent spirits since their fliends In gray were beseiging Forts Lincoln and Stev ens, and sending the boom of their guns through all these streets. I suppose no rebel victory, real or pretended, with its revolting details of “Yanks” slaughtered in fabulous thousands, ever drew from traitor's throats such shouts of rejoicings, as this act of . Presi dent Johnson. Every traitor who ever wore grey from Lee downward, every demon that starved and butchered our helpless prisoners, every northern copperhead that gloated in se cret over the news of disaster to the Union cause, every Chicago conspirator who declared the war a failure, plotted and labored night and day to make it so,—who of all these will not exult with joy unspeakable and hasten to assure President Johnson of his sympathy and support? The objections of the President to the Freedman’s Bureau Bill are of so fundamental a character that they seem to form a complete bar to any adequate legislation whatever for the protection of the Freedmen. All the coun try knows that notwithstanding his previous professions, the President has of late set him self like a rock against every attempt to grant the negro the ballot, that wondrous weapon of defence, which might help him to protect him self. Now he plants himself, so far as I can see, just as squarely and resolutely in the way of that national protection which the enlight ened and Christian sentiment of the country is trying to throw around the late slave. Be cause “Ms condition is not so exposed ces may at first be imagined,” because his condition is only not so bad as it might be, therefore the President appears to be satisfied with it.— Homeless, landless, penniless, ignorant, desti tute of every material aid and every moral help, deprived of civil rights, nay even of that poor protection which the selfish interest of liis late owner threw about him while yet a chattel, the servant flf one master no longer but the slave of any and every tyrant who may be pleased to lord it over him,—this is the condition to which the President, this mod ern “Moses,” volunteers to lead his colored charge. This condition in which can remain only the name and shadow of liberty like a cruel taunt and bitter mockery, this condition is the reward which he offers to the valor that filled Burnside’s crater with sable dead, and piled the ditches of Wagner with their dis membered bodies; that on a hundred battle, fields poured out blood as rich and red as ever flowed in Saxon veins for the defence of a country and flag, which to us indeed had al ways stood for all that is dear to man on eartht but which to our darker brethren had always been a land of bondage and a symbol of op pression. This is the goal to which the negro is told to aspire and the estate with which he must be content unless he will leave the land he has subdued and enriched with his labor and defended with his blood, and “emigratei”— whither? How does semi-barbarous Russia with her emancipated serfs provided with homes and freeholds, rise up in judgement with such a doctrine and condemn it and all who support it? But the fi-eedman is to be protected, says the President. How, and by whom? By their late tyrants and oppressors of course. That is the tins constitutional way of doing it. But have not the most kind, humane, and relig. ious people of the South for generations inflict ed on these same negroes a system involving and comprehending every crime and wrong, every sin and shame, every cruelty and out rage named or nameless, known under heaven and among men,—inflicted it not as a wrong but as a right, not as an evil but a3 a good, not as a curse but as a blessing almost infinitely precious to all concerned? What now can any consistent ex-slaveholder, who wants to do the very best he can for his late chattels, do better in liis own estimation, than, since he is debarred by Federal tyranny from conferring the supreme good of slavery, to fix up some thingjust as near like it as possible for his black beneficiaries ? And if the best and kind est of the Southern people do this, what will the vilest and most brutal, excited by the re sults of the war to even more than their usual ferocity, what will they do, or rather what will they not do ? But the courts are open to these freedmen 1 “So,” replied a British statesman to a similar remark about the English poor, “So is any tavern in London ” But Congress can interfere 1 exactly—and be met with an Executive veto. And this is the end of all our patient en. deavors and aU our high hopes 1 No this is not the end. Much is yet to come. Some things might be easily predicted, but they will best announce themselves. The people, thank God! still have everything in their own hand3, and while this is so the cause cannot be lost. One sentence let every one who loves his country and liberty take for his motto and bind it to his heart—the message of Ignatius to Polycaap—'‘See that thou standest as the antil when it is smitten.” T.

Invalids can be assured that it contains not a particle of opium, or anything else that is in any way injurious to the system, but that it is an agreeable and permanent tonic.

Perry’s Motb and Freckle Lotiou* Chloasma, or Moth patch, (also called Llverspot,) and Lentigo, or Freckles, are often very annoying, particularly to ladies of light complexion, for the dis colored spots show more plainly on the face of a ? blonde than of a brunette; but they greatly mar the beauty of either; and any preparation that will ef fectually remove them without injuring the texture or color of the skin, is certainly a desideratum. Dr. B. C. Perry, who has made diseases of the skin a speci ality, has discovered a remedy for these discolora tions, which is at once prompt, infallible, and harm less. Prepared only by B. C. PERRY.

This sudden and unexpected dispensation has cast a gloom over a larqe circle of relatives and friends, extinguishing Ibeir loudest hopes and disappointing the future ex pectations of a kind, confiding husband. A few short months only were they permitted to live together, ere the angel of death has come to sever the bright est link in the chain of their aftecrious. Her early death is a source of deep ailllctidb to him. She was amiable, virtuous and beloved by all who ervjoyed lier acquaintance. Her whole life was characterized by Christian principles, and during her sickness by pa tience anil Christian resignation, quietly submitting to her heavenly Father's will. Asa aaughfer she was kind, affectionate, and obedient; as a wife, gen tle, loving ana faithful. May the mourning frieuds all find consolation iu tho reflection that those who have preceded them In the pilgrimage of liie are not gone before—that, “over the river” they are wailing for us to join their society and participate m their joy. In North Fryeburg, July 25, 1865, James Oharles Bradley, son of David A Bradley, and grandson of James diaries, at the youthful age of 7 years. _ “Asleep in Jesus.*' O, can it be that the bright , little blossom is stricken down thus early in tne morning of life ; faded away from earth forever? Just nine months from the day his dear mother’s spirit took its flight, little Charlie's also departed and left a father and grandfather almost frantic wi'h grief, besides a bereaved circle of schoolmates and | friends. Dark and cheerless is the fireside now; as the broken circle gathers around it and the bright smiling* countenance of little Chailie is no where to be seen; no more the clear ringing laugh can gladden the ear of those who held 1dm dear. How myste rious are thy works, O God! How strange to us, that one so active and intelligent should be so sud denly taken from our midst. One who bade fair to bo a father’s and grandfather’s pride, ever ready to listen to reason and to be reprimanded when neces sary, a remarkable memory, punctual in attendance, kind aud obedient. Little did we think when we saw him fresh in the bloom of life, about a week pre vious to his death, that “Another dear he’d tollow soon, Whose sun did set ere it wus noon.” Painful was the death bed scene of the little suf ierer, as he lay breathing heavily in the strugi.de 1» tween life and death; but Death is too evidently de picted in his countenance for the anxious watchers to entertain the slightest hope of his recover}'. At last the trying moment arrived and the little inno cent's spirit has passed the earthly vale and entered that eternal world of bliss where there is nenher sor row nor pain. *Tis hard to part witli those to whom we become fondly endeared; and yet how agonizing tor parents to behold ibe flower just nipped whilst budding, the promising son cut down in his youth and beauty, yet we must consider that we too must die, and unto dust return. But our consolation con sists in the belief that we are in the hands of a just God, who does not, atdict willingly, and that following the example of Him who taketh away the sins of the world, we shall rejoin those who have sojourned to that happy land whence no traveler returns.
