Shelbyville Uo ion.' mm m nj iaaasW-- t K' ' The 4th at Fairfield. ' s ' TiMfLiTon's Crwic, July 7tb, 1863. Ma. BiNaiUM, Ä: Having seen an announcement in the American aod Dem' i ocrat of an old-fashioned celebration to be beld at Fairfield on tbe Fourth that ever memorable day, that all true patriots love to celebrate and seeing that able sneakers were to be present, wo laid iside a our every-day suit, donned our "Sunday go-to meetins," and repaired to tbe beau tiful crove adjoining town, with our wife and little ones) to pass the day in ' greet ing of friends and hearing what could be said by Judge Heid and others. The ball opened by tbe boom of the cannon, but we thought that the aonnd thereof was not tbe sound of the ftTreand outgushing fatriotim or"6, and" upon inquiry we ound that it was the Youo'g'HIckory from Brookville that gun that was never beard to sound aaletkfor Uoion victory dur ing the whole of our. struggle with seceis aion. Then it was that the mystery with us was solved'. 1 " Notwithstsndiog the heat of tho day, at en early hour the crowd began to as semble, and the woods began to ring with the chirp of birds, the cry of babies and the shouts of Young America. At 10 A. M. the Judgo and. others mounted the stand snd took tbeir scats, while the Mar shal of the dsy announced to the expeo tant crowd that tbo first thing in cider waa prayer by Rev. Proctor. Next was tbe reading of the Declaration of Inde pendence by Mr. llrookhank, who, ia a. clear distioct voice, read ao that all could hear, that ninety two years ago our sires, on account ot oppression by the Lnglih; said they would be freo. .After which tbe Judge arose, with the stars and stripes wsvioz over his hesJs aod rusde a veiy . pretty address of an hour's length, in which he applauded all the heroes of the Revolution for creating and handing down to us one of tho best gov ernments on earth; told of the mighty struggle to gain the victory; that they left their homes, and left tbe heroio women to till the soil aad raie the cropc; after eight long, weary yaars of bloody conflict and death, they were victorious; that when the war was over they made the immortal Washington the ruler of this nation; all of which to me waa very interesting aod pleasing. Bit methought I could see aoxioua, listening, gray-beaded men and women waiting to hear something said of the dear Loya Aey bad given in tho late war to protect tnd maintain those glorious principles for which their forefathers had foogbt. But L! not a word did be have to say lor those trave soldiers, for whom had it wot boen, (ho blessing he and all of us wsa enioyitg at thia time would not lave been, that to-day; instead of being assembled under that old flag, (that, by the way, refused to stand and float over his head until supported by a staunch Union man,) that to day, had it not been for thoso bravo boys, in that old fisg'a stesd might have been tbe stsrs snd bars. Is it pofhible that Judge Heid has noth ing to say for there poor dead soldiera who starved and rotted in the prisons of tbe South during the late war, and theu have the iinpudened to ak the living soldier to vote to send him to ruake laws for them! lor tlame! Judire Held. No wonder that that flag whith tbey carried in battle, and sumo of thta trapped their wounded bodies in and died, rather than see it trampled in the dust; do wonder, 1 fay that it refused to stand and wave over your unhallowed head. Oh, Judge, it is a true nayiog, that tbe way of the transgressor is hard: at least vow will find it ao by tbe time Geo. W. Julian cets through with you. The JuJe took his seat, no doubt feel ing thstbe hsd made a lasting impression on bis hearers. After dinner, the hero of calt Well offered some toasts, which, from some cause unknown to the writer, did not meet with very hearty responses. Af ter which, there sppesred to be a desire in some to go home, but the Kev. Mr. Pye boing present, , wis called, and came for ward aod made a very fine address that seemed to suit tbe occasion. lie told us that whjlbt he )ield sacred and cherished in his memory our forefathers who be queathed to us our free and cherished in ntitutions. lit could not forcet those equal ly bravo patriots who fought secession and gained a victory over a foe doubly danger ous.by.beiug rieht in our midst. Then it was that you could see the tears of joy start from the. old me n's ees, to think that there was one who had a word to say for their bravo boys. .Then all soemed pleased with the cele bration, andms tha shadows of evening were gathering, tha crowd dispersed for their homes, very well satisfied with them selves and tho rest'of mankind. Fii.lis. 'Negro Equality. i It may bo all very well for tho lower scum of Democrata to continue to prate about "ncero eouality." but with . the leaders that sort of thing is about played out, and bow to manipulate the negroes, in order to secure tbe electoral voto of the Southern States, is now the . subject of their most cherished thoughts and pro fonnd solicitude. The Democrats of Tennessee were' sagacious enough to take a bold stand,. and so tbey appointed Joe Williams, a prominent ebony-colored and conservative gentleman, as one of their delegates to tbe New York Convention, and lie is now in that city, in company with the Tennessee delezates, with bis credentials in his pocket. He psssed throuch this city Monday night, in com pauy with other delegates from that Sttte, and was treated- with great consideration - a . t ' a by his Icllow-travelers. tie wsa lnij-o. duced.to a number of delegates who joined the tmin at this place, to all of whom he took great satisfaction in" sbowiog his 'papera," including his free railroad pass from Jcflcrsouvillc to New York and re turn.,. ,The nclt .'hing wc expect to see will be a full blooded negro nominated as a Dcraocrstio candidate for Cohgrem, and elected. Just tLe luouieut it become; the interest of that party to adopt negro suf-1 frage, Just that moment will tbey awear that it was always a cardinal principle of the Democratic faith. Journal. 1 - j , i , GIVING AWAY HALF A OTATE. Exposure of an Enormoua Fraud. ' We printed in tho Coogressionsl proceedings- Mr. Julian's speech, exposing one of the most prodigious attempts at fraud ever made. The following from the St. Louis Dvho erat gives a more particular account of thia matter: V'We receivo many "communications proteating very earnestly against the 'treaty ao called, recently effected with the Osage Indians. Tbe settlers of Southern Kansas are very strongly op posed to it; the people of other parte, of tbe State, it seems, begin to realise that it was an enormous swindle. There is no use in wasting words about, such a per formanceit is a swindle, no more and no. less. -' One correspondent fears that Senator Henderson will support tbe tresty in the Senate. While censuring that Senator for his course on impeachment, we have repeatedly given credit to liiu for his valuable services in connection with Indian affairs, and ' cannot believe that he will give any countenance to a treaty which ia at once1 an infamous out rage upon the Indians and a great wrong to tbe people of Kansas.'' ' "The practical workiog'of these; great land grante or sales docs not seem to be fully understood In Congress. Enormous grants of land are voted in aid of some rsilroad or to provide for agricultural colleges, or tracts equally extensive and valuable ate sold to some enterprising company, and members go to 'dinner, no doubt, with an idea that they have done a very sensible thing. The speculator or the railroad company, aometiroes, assists the Conercssmsn to feel that he has de served well of his country, eorne times by a big dinner, sometimes a littlo political influence at a critical moment, and some times by more aubstnntial aid. But the great majority of members, no doabt, really imagine that these grants or sales of land are great pablie blessings, which harm nobody, and materially forward im portant enterprises. Sometimes they are of needed service to railroad companies; more frequently they serve to enrich the railroad operators without at all hastening the construction of tha road; sometimes they are simply big gifts to privsde panic, for no consideration or poblio advantage whatever; mere awindles and .thefta from tlo public on an enormous scale. But whether beneficial or not, they are alwaya in one sense a curse to the country. Tbey put great tracts of Isnd into tho bands of speculators, to be held, shut out from set tlement, and controlled ' by a grssping monopoly. Let any man go into certain countica in this state and aco how the best and richest land is all monopolised and kept from settlement; how immigration, flowing eagerly iu that direction, looka in vain for suitable locations st reasonsble rates, and then rolls on to more distant regions; how wbole counties aro thus stunted and strangled, prevented from making improvements or establishing schools, and retarded in every element of rtrosperity; how the state itseif is thus do ayed io growth, retarded in development of resources aod deprived of a thrifty and In Justriouapopulation, which would gladly settle if it were not for these lend grsots. Precisely the same consequences may be seen in Kansas and in ever other State where tbe mistaken liberality of Congress to private interests or to corporations has lucked much of the land tn enormoua grants. Nothing is more surely injurious to a State, and scarcely snytoiag more surely retards its healthy growth than tbe establishment of large land monopolies within its borders. ' To members of Con gress, no doubt, it seetaa a very desirable thing to help the building of a new rail road, particularly if the railroad men are agreeable or useful or liberal persons. But in very many cases tho State and the peo ple could far better afford to build the road themselves than tc see vast tracts of land locked up from settlement. "So much for land grants in general. But the particular grant in question has odious features peculiar to itself. We call it a grant, and it is nothing ele. Tbo trice paid is a chest: the manner of getting rid of tbelndiau title ia a cheat; the exclusive sale to one company out of several that would gladly have competed for tbe purchase is a cheat; the transfer itself, covering so vast a tract of valuable land, in pretended aid of one railroad which does not touch any part of it, is a cheat. It is, in fact, a grant of land to certain private individuals for their own uses. If they never build a railroad at all, the United States and tbe people of Kansas have no redress. If they refuse to pay the sum promised to the Indiens, or to protect the interests of settlers, there is no effectual redress. If the road proposed ia worth anything, it can be or will be built without any such grant to aid it, aod if Congress intends to enrioh its managers it might at least enrich them without de frauding Kansas or swindling the Indiana. Eight millions seven hundred thousand acres of land, some of it as rich as any in Kansas, to one act of men for what? "It is a grant of land which Cangress has no right togivo away, because it be longs of right to somebody else. The 'treaty' with the Indians is not worth a moment's consideration.. The man who would extort such a treaty ought to be punished fcr it; the Senate, if it ratifies such a treaty, will deservo the severest censure for it. We have heard before of tbe manner in which, these 'treaties are obtained, Kansas, settler, entering upon the tract which the government had solemnly pledged itself to reserve to tie Osages, took forcible and unlawful possession of a atrip of this very same, land, and then, to sustain them in . tbeir claims, a treaty was got out of the Indians relinQuiohins the cronertv. There was at least this to be said in that case, it was a measure lor tne beoebt of actual settlers. But now it is proposed to take from the Indians the lands guarantied to them by the United States at a prico utterly inade quate, and less than was actually offered by otbr parties, cot for the benefit of settlers, but without proper protection for tnrir rignis, ana an to put nearly nine millions of acres of land into the hands of a tingle corporation. Really the itxipa- dence of this pcrformonee is its only ex cuse. , ' ' r ':V "We cannot belierc that the Senate will ratify this o-i-lled treaty. If it is duiccd'ccsl to remove the Oagej' froin the State, then let them at least have the benefit ofa fair sale of tbeir lands for what tbey will bring, actual settlers bavlog the first choice; let the land be sold to parties who are able to pay for it, in auch I .arts or lots as tbey may prefer; and then et tbe government itself buy the rest, If necesssry, rather than give it to a single railroad, whieb does not run near it, and which may never be built. . K.nsas will need other roads by and by. Southern Kansas, especially, will stand in need of more than one. Tbe true policy is to open the land for settlement, after juatly removing the Indian claim. But if that cannot be done, the land can; at ' least, be aold to the highest and not to the lowest bidder THE AMNESTY PROCLAMATION. Andy'a Bid for Renom (nation. . WAsniJtaTOH, July 3. Bg the rrctUent of tU United Statci: - Wher(ss, io the month of July, Anno Domini, 16C1, in accepting the condition of civil war which waa brought about by the insurrection and rebellion in several of the Slatea which constituted the United State, the two Iiou.hb of Congresa did solemnly declare that the war was not waged on the part of the Government in any spirit of oppression, nor for any pur p? e of conquest or subjugation, nor for any purpose of overthrowing or Interfer ing with the rights or established institu tions of tbo States, but rely to defend and maintain tbe supremacy of the Con stitution of the United Ststes, and to re store the Uoion with all the dignity, equality and rights of the aeveral States unimpaired, and that aa soon as those ob jects should be accomplished tbe war on the part of the Government should cesse; And wheress, The, President of tho United Statea has heretofore, ia tbe spirit of that declaratioa, and with tbe view of securing for it t bimste and complete ef fect, sent forth several proclamations of fering asunesty aud pardon to persons who had been or were concerned in tbe sfore said rebellion; which proclamatiooa, how ever, were attended with prudential re- servstions and exceptions, then deemed nccesaary, and hieb pro I am at ion were respectively issued on th th day of De cember, 1803; on tCe 2Gth day of March, 18G1; on the 2'Jlh day ot May, lHCi, and on the 7th day of September, 18C7; and Wbeieas, The said lamentable civil war has long ainoe altogether ceased, with an acknowledgment, by all the States f the supremacy of this Federal Cunst'tlutiou and tbe Uovernmeut thereunder, and there no longer exiata say reasonable ground to apprehend a reuewal of thesaid civil war or any foreign interference, or any unlawful resistance by any portion of the people of the States, tha Constitution and laws of the United Stater; and, where as, it is desirable to reduce the standing army and to a ipeedy termination military occupation, martial law, military tribunals, abridgement cf tbe freedom of speech aud of the prtsa, cppres the privilege of habeas corpus aid of ths right of trisl by jury, such enrrouchment on free institu tions is time of puce being dangerous to ptAblie liberty, )eoupatible with the in dividual rights of tbe tiliaen, contrary to tbo germs aud spirit if every republican form of government, and exhaustive of tbe national resarces; and, whereas, it is believed that a mutt I v and pardon will lend to secure a complete aud universal establishment and prevalence of municipal law end order in conformity with the Constitution of the United Ststes, remove all appearancos and presumptions of a ro taliutury or viudictive polioy on the part of the Government, attended by unneces sary disqualifications, pains, penalties, confiscations and dsl'raibemeut, and on tbe contrary to promote aud to sccuro eompleto fraternal . reconciliation among the wbole people, with due submission to the laws; uow, therefore, be it known that I, Andrew Johnson, Pre.idsr.t of tke United States, do, by virtue of the Con stitution, and in the name of the people cf the United Stales, hereby proclaim and declsre, unconditionally and without res ervation, to all and to every person who, directly or indirectly, partly participated in the late insurrection or rebellion, ex ceptiog such person or persons as may be under imprisonment or indiotment in any court of tne United States, having com plete jurisdiction, upon a charge of trea son or other (alony, a full pardon and am. neMy for the offense of treason. . againat the United Ststes, or of adhering to their enemies during the lata civil war, with the restoration of all the rights of proper ty, except as to slaved, and accept also as to any property of which any persons tsay have been legally divested ander the laws of the United States.

To the Editor of tU Salem ( Ma$$.) Gaz ette; . Dear Sir I am sorry your editorial in the Gasette was not aa good-natured aa usual. Is it not possible that Geo. But ler may he right, not in ''slaughtering tbe tax bill," because be did not do that, bat fearing lest the wbole bill should not get through at this session, io proposing that the two great sources of revenue frauds, whisky and tobacco, should be reported in a eparate bill, so that the whiaky ring might, surely ho deprived of its corruption fuud which had already proved too atroog for the Government io the impeachment trial. He hsd seen the revenue from whisky alone, sink from thirty millions to thirteen milliooa, whero a hundred mil lions ought to have come to tbe Government (it waa collected from the people by the Ting,") and he thought that a stop ought surely be put to this abase, which, un cheoked, he feared would be used to over throw the Republican party in tbe coming election. " Believing this, was it not right for him I to aee to it that thia Andrew Johnson cor- j ruption fund should end? ! will not the fact that Gen. Butler wss ! supported in ilm view by tbe votes. ol such able and true Urpublicauf as Diaine and Pike of Msine; Dawes.

Butler for bar-1 log an opinion of bia own, in which aacli men concurred?. Do you really believe the above named, headed by Waahburoe of Iliinois, eo tared into a cooapiraey with. Gen. Butler to injure Grant and kill the Republican party? , As to tbo Impeachment, General Butler pleads guilty of conspiracy with .every member cf the House, beaded by Schuy ler Colfax, and every member of the Sen ate that ever was a Kepabtican, save the conscientious and incorruptible ssvsn, to avenge himself on Grant (aod Colfax?) by "weakening tbe llepublican' party," by impeaching aad convicting Andrew John son.
