How the Radicals will Vote.
The reconstruction bills were passed by the
Radical Congress for the purpose of securing
the permanent domination of the Radical party.
Through the instrumentality of these reconstruc
tion bills, they expected to gain as much or
more in the South, than they would probably
lose by reaction in the North, if they could, by
persuasion or threats, induce the Southern
States to comply with them, by calling conven
tions and adopting constitutions of the charac
ter prescribed in these bills. In this way, the
South would be radicalized, and the strength of
the South would be added to the Radioal party.
With this object accomplished, the rule of the
Radical party would be ensured, beyond perad
venture, for an indefinite period, if not for alj
time. So well is this understood, that there is
not a Radical in the South, white or black, who
does not favor the call of conventions and the
adoption of constitutions in compliance with the
plan of reconstruction devised and prescribed by
the Radical Congress. Show us a Radical,
white or black, and we will show you a man
who will vote in favor of a Convention. Show
us a sympathiser, with the purposes of the
Radicals, and we will show you a man who will
vote for a Convention. Show us a man who
expects to be benefitted by the ascendancy of
the Radical party, either by the hope of office
or the expectancy of patronage in any form, and
we will show you an ally of that party who will
vote for a Convention. Those who will vote
for a Convention to comply with the Radical
plan of reconstruction, will vote exactly as every
Radical, white and black, will vote, and just as
every Radical paper in the South urges them to
vote. So anxious are the leading Radicals that
the South should reconstruct upon their plan,
that thpy endeavor to coerce the South $o do so

The opponents of the Radicals, North and
South, are opposed to compliance with the
Radical plan of reconstruction, and the friends
of the Radicals, North and South, are in favor
of it If you are a Radical, vote for a Conven
tion ;if not, vote against it. If you wish to

you wish to vote in opposition to them, vote
The Amnesty Proclamation.
In another column will be found the new
Amnesty Proclamation which was issued on
Saturday. It extends amnesty to all engaged
in the rebellion, who take the oath set forth in
the proclamation, except three specified classes.
1. The chief executive officers, heads of de
partments, foreign agents and State governors
under the rebel confederacy, military officers
above the rank of brigadier general, and naval
officers above the rank of captain.
2. All who were guilty of cruelty to Union
3. Those who, at the time they seek to avail
themselves of the proclamation, are in custody
of the civil, military or naval authorities, and
are held to bail; and all persons implicated in
the assassination of President Lincoln.
The oath to be taken by the seeking amnesty
pledges loyalty to the Union and all Constitu
tion, and the faithful observance of the laws
relating to the emancipation of slaves. The
Cabinet was a unit in recommending it, and it
is in exact accordance with the terms offered to
the rebels at the time of Lee's surrender. Of
course the Radicals denounce it; but all their
objections are founded on the fact that they
fear it may prevent them from perfecting their
scheme of establishing negro rule in the South.
The white people of the entire country will
greet this proclamation with unqualified ap
Speaking of the number of persons excluded
from the benefits of the Amnesty Proclamation,
the National Intelligencer says: "Upon the
whole, after the disposition of the applications
for special pardon now on file, which we hope
will be done in the spirit which dictated the
proclamation, it is not believed that the entire
number of the excluded will finally reach be
yond a few hundred."
It has become customary with some, since
the war, when they wish to do an act which
tbey feel to be wanting in manliness and pa
triotism to attempt to shield themselves from
just odium by saying that the soldiers approve
of it. In this way the soldiers are insulted and
made scape goats for the least worthy of their
number. True soldiers, feel that whilst it is
honorable to abido the decision of arms so far
as the issues involved were concerned, that it
is base to yield voluntary a.-sent to exactions
outside of the issues properly decided by arms.
Governor Helm, of Kentucky, died on last
Sunday week, the Bth, at his residence near
Elizabcthtown. His death having occurred du
ring the first two weeks of his term, the law
makes it the duty of the Chief Justice to order
an election for Governor to be held on the first
Monday of August next. Iv the mean time all
the powers and duties appertaining to the office
must be exercised by Lieutenant Governor Ste
Hunnicutt in Trouble.—A recent editorial
in the Richmond (Va.) New Nation closes as
follows: "We now warn you, friends, every
one of you, white and colored, that unless you
come quickly to the aid of the New Nation it
will close up forever. We have done our duty;
will you do yours? We shall see. May the
Lord help you!"
Acting Governor of Kentucky.—Lieu
tenant-Governor John W. Stevenson, who be
comes Governor of Kentucky by reason of the
death of Governor Helm, is a native of Rich
mond and a son of the late Hon. Andrew Ste
venson, who was once Speaker of Congress and
Minister to the Court of St. James.
The heavy Radical loss in Maine creates in
tense excitement. The State House of Dele
gates, which last year had but thirteen Demo
crats in it, is now claimed by that party. The
great central States of New York, Pennsylvania
and Ohio are claimed as certain, and the defeat
of negro suffrage in Ohio seems to be conceded.
, The Richmond Whig says that, "physical
science, and that is but another name for me
chanics, has, in these latter years, wrought a
revolution in industry, in business and in society
that has resembled the work of magic. The
man of correct thought and feeling who strips
" men and things of all adventitious and meretri
-3 cious trappings and ornaments, and judges them
s according to their merits and general usefulness,
_ feels that he has cause to thank God who con
structed the Globe we inhabit and the starry
. firmament, the sun that lights us by day and
i the nioon that lights us by night, in that He
J has opened, and is opening still further the eyes
- of the world to the real value of the mechanics.
What an error, what a heresy, what rank injus
-1 tice has been held and manifested towards that
3 great class! The centuries that have passed
stand disgraced in our eyes by reason of the
contempt they concurred in putting upon the
mechanic. Was it not a fraud practiced by the
' powerful few who ruled to repress the might
' and majesty of the masses? If so, this nine
■ teenth century has, we hope, forever frustrated
it. The mechanic, the educated mechanic, has
triumphed over the false logic and the despotism
of the centuries, and he stands now the direct
ing and the ruling power in all civilized coun
-1 tries, His discoveries have revolutionized all
the peaceful avocations of life and made war a
new science. The productions of the farmer
, are multiplied, and his labors lightened by the
machinery supplied to him by the mechanic.—
In whatever quarter we look we discern the evi
dences of the mechanic's presence in all that is
useful, beautiful and profitable. i
"Physical science is to the mechanic what the
lamp was to Aladdin. It has raised him from
a beggar to a prince, and given him power over
those who were wont to, despise him. He has
at length, after struggling for ages, found his
true position, and he is this day the master
spirit ofciviliz-ation. His triumph is complete,
and yet his power has not been half expended.
He has an immense reserved force that can only
be measured hy the unknown capacities of phys-
I ical science."
In Vermont the Radicals lose heavily on the
popular vote and the Democrats gain quite a
number of members of the Legislature.
In California the Democrat- make a clean
sweep, electing their Governor, Lieut-Governor,

i this year is 6,032, against 15,085 in the same
I towns last year, making a Republican loss of
9,053. The aggregate vote in these towns is
1 43,398, against 48,215 last year. The total vote

it will probably fail under 100,000.

STAUNTON SPECTATOR AND GENERAL ADVERTISER.
The Last Amnesty Proclamation.
The New York Tribune is consistent on the
subject of amnesty to the Southern people. It
is in this matter certainly wiser than Mr. John
son himself, who should have issued a general
amnesty proclamation when he issued his ab
surd $20,000 exception paper. The Tribune
"We were in favor of a sweeping amnesty
when Mr. Johnson was raving and roaring
thrice a day that 'treason was a crime, and
traitors must be punished.' We are in favor
of it now, and would gladly have every peacea
ble well-disposed man in the South assured
that no harm will befall him because-of his
share in the rebellion so long as lift deports
himself as a good citizen should. Let those
who were rebels feel and know that they may
plant and till, build and trade, buy lands and
sell them, without fear of confiscation or mo
lestation. So far as President Johnson's new
proclamation tends to secure this end, it has
our hearty approval."
The Tribunes article concludes with the fol
lowing paragraph, a part of which is worthy the
attention of the Southern reader:
"The only thing he is likely to effect is to ex
cite an antagonism and a conflict between Con
gress and the leading rebels now excluded from
the voting registries, which will tend to prolong
indefinitely the disfranchisement of the latter,
luis we should most earnestly deplore. We
hope to see every seceded State restored, or
nearly or quite every ex-rebel enfranchised, be
fore the impending eh©__e of President. Mr.
Johnson % proclamation, whatever may be his
motive, tends to, defeat this. If the ex-rebels
are deluded iaso complicity with his schemes,
he will defeat it. Let them keep perfectly
quiet, ftfad we trust the mischief may yet be
Rise in Gold.
The Richmond Lisjjatch says the rise in gold
is not attributable to California or the move
ments of President Johnson, but to the unmis
takable signs of the determination of the people
to redeem a large part at least of the Federal
bonds with greenbacks, and to so modify those
not redeemed as to subject them at the earliest
day to taxation. The extraordinary alliance be
tween leading Republicans and Democrats for
this object leaves no room to doubt as to the
result. Pendleton, Vallandigham, Allen, and
other Democrats of the Northwest, and General
Butler, Thad. Stevens, and other leading Re
publicans, have met on this platform. Such a
combination is irresistible. A considerable in
flation of the currency is inevitable, and it is no
wonder that the capitalists and gold speculators
have become alarmed.
A Ma„ylani> Democratic Journal on
Impartial Suffrage.—The York (Pa.) Ga
zette, a Democratic journal, predicts that Con
gress, at its next session, will declare that the
Governments of Maryland, Kentucky, and Del
aware are not republican in form, and will in
sist on "engrafting negro suffrage" upon the'r
Constitutions. The Gazette concludes that
"then there will be a 'general muss' and an
overthrow of Congress.'' The Frederick (Md.)
Union, one of the most violent Democratic
journals of Western Maryland, comments upon
and endorses these statements and opinions,
"We assure our contemporary that if the
good people of Maryland, by a fair vote at the
ballot-box on the ISth instant decide in favor
of the adoption of the new Constitution, as we
believe they will by a large majority, and the
satraps of the' Rump Congress' undertake to
overthrow it, as they threaten will be the case,
and attempt to fasten a military despotism up
on the freedmen of this State, there will, in
deed be a 'muss' that will overthrow the whole
machinery of Radical despotism. We know
that President Johnson will never permit such
an act of rascality to take place without a des
perate struggle, and at his call more than a
million of men, strong-minded men, 'men who
know their rights and dare maintain them,'
will rally to the rescue of a violated Constitu
tion with a will that will make such rotten trait
ors and tyrants as Stevens, Butler. Schenck,
Sumner & Co., quake and fear. The Demo
ocrats are not to be intimidated. They will do
their duty like men."
Negro candidates for the Convention and
for Congress, are already out in Georgia, and
from the specimens of their addresses which we
have seen, they may well claim to be competent
to discharge the duties incident to the position.
Every indication points with almost absolute
certainty to the fact, that there will be in every
Southern State colored candidates for Congres
sional honors, and it is becoming a patent fact,
that the better class of Southerners will in many
instances support the claims of intelligent and
honest negroes, rather than those of persecuted
loyalists, whose expression of devotion to the
Union were never heard until after Lee's sur
render, and whose elasticity of conscience en
ables them to swear, that they never sympa
thized or furnished aid to any person engaged in
armed hostility to the Government.
In Virginia, at least, this feeling is daily ac
quiring strength, and we have every reason to
anticipate that colored candidates for Congress
will receive the support of the more intelligent
and influential white citizens, not through spite,
and a desire to disgust the Northern people
with the doctrine of negro equality, but because
they prefer entrusting to them their interests,
than to confide in the honesty and integrity of
white men who avow their willingness to swal
low the iron clad oath.— Lynchburg News.
The Massachusetts Republican State Conven
tion, which assembled in Worcester on the 11th
inst., adopted the following resolution, which
shows to what extremes the Radical leaders
are disposed to resort, rather than give up the
reins of government or lose the spoils. "We,
therefore, in behalf of the people of Massa
chusetts, while declaring our approval of the
just measures of Congress to arrest the career
and defeat the plans of this dangerous and des
perate man, pledge also to that body in the
future the fullest support in such constitutional
measures as in its wisdom it may find necessary
to resort to in furtherance of the same end, even
to the exercise of its extraordinary power to
remove from office this destroyer ot the public
peace and this enemy of the government itself."
A White Man's Party.—The Charlottes

The whites have thus ticenty-one thousand
six hundred majority. Shall Hunnieutt run
over us ? Can we stand together like the blacks?

in hand. There have been enough negro
meetings. We have had enough insults. Peo

Our Position—Against a Convention.
Some time since, the Fredericksburg Herald,
in an article with the caption above, spoke as
follows, from which it would seem that that
journal was somewhat opposed to calling a Con
"We are 'against a Convention,' because,
when we registered our name as a voter, we
took a solemn oath to maintain with our integ
rity the Constitution of the United States.—
Aye more, to counsel and persuade others to do
so. Voting for a Convention involves the ac
ceptance of the military bills of Congress, which
are contrary to the Constitution ! We will not
perjure ourselves wilfully—we will not swear to
support one hour and stain our conscience by
falsification the next week!
"We are 'against a Convention,' because two
distinct races never did and never can govern
together in peace. We insist that our's was in

Radicals shall be estopped in all the future—if
their counsels now prevail—from holding us to

i Terrible Riot in Farmville.
i We learn from passengers by the Southside
cars, that a riot occurred in Farmville, yester
day, between the Yankee soldiers statoned
there and the negroes of the town, which re
sulted in one soldier being shot through the
. head and killed, another dangerously, and per
i haps mortally wounded from a blow on the
head with a fence rail, and several others more
.or less injured. Some four or five negroes were
. dangerously wounded, and a number of others
slightly. The riot commenced early in the day,
i and was not quelled until dinner time. The
origin of the disturbance was as fullows :
. A difficulty occurred Monday afternoon, be
, tween the colored bar-keeper at Booker's Ho
tel, and a couple of Yankee soldiers, which re
sulted in the negro's being badly beaten. Yes
. terday morning, a number of negroes, armed
, with every available weapon, suea as pistols,
. knives, sticks, clubs, fence rails, &c, appeared
on the streets, and being met by a half «lozen
. or more soldiers, the fighting commenced. The
i negroes were constantly reinforced until they
numbered several hundred, the soldiers also re
ceiving accessions to their numbers. The offi
cer commanding the soldiers, ordered such of
i them as were not engaged in the riot, to the
■ scene of conflict to suppress it. Upon arriving,
however, instead of attempting to stop the
fighting, they pitched into the negroes, and a
, general meelee ensued, with the result above
i stated. _ The negroes were finally driven off,
and quiet restored, though a renewal of the
. fight is momentarily to be apprehended. But
. one citizen, we are informed, took part in the
affray, and he received a considerable whipping

Convention or no Convention.
! The following is the conclusion of an article
i in the Leesburg Mirror on the subject of Con
-3 vention or no Convention :
5 "If we are drifting along like a mighty ship
on a tern pest-tossed ocean, without compass or
' chart, directed solely by the caprice of the mv
" tinous crew that has violently seized the helm —
3 we must inevitably, sooner or later, be dashed
r to pieces against the dangerous breakers that
" line our trackless path, and as the South is not
| responsible for the whirlwind, wisdom, pru
■ dence, and the best interests of the whole peo
f pie, it seems to us, dictate that they should not
1 be guilty of the farce of attempting to direct
3 the storm by holding State Conventions. A
J party that boasts of acting outside an instru
ment they had sworn to obey, is ripe for the
violation of any pledge, and as without a revo
lution of parties in the North no change of the
condition of affairs can be hoped for, it becomes
| a serious question for consideration, whether
• we had not better remain as we are, than take
1 such action a* will only tend to swell the al
, ready large odds against the Conservative ele-
m ent of that section.''
, The Election in California—The Re
) action. —The intemperance and violence of the
. radical party leaders and their organs are having
, their effect upon the country, and indicate a
popular movement against the policy of negro
supremacy. This is evidenced by the recent
1 election in California ;by the increase of the
i democratic vote and the great falling off in the
> strength of the republicans in that State. Cab
> ifornia is slow to feel the influence of a political
■ re action. This was shown in the commence
t ment of the rebellion, as well as in the subse
• quent issue between the President and Congress
■on the question of reconstruction. The fact that
l the republican party in California was rent asun
-1 derby internal dissensions, and that theopposi
; tion vote has been materially increased, will ma
terially influence the result of the elections in
l N. York & Pennsylvania, and probably in Ohio.
• Iv the latter State the democrats have commit
ted serious blunders and will be damaged by
their own folly. But in Pennsylvania and this
State we shall not be surprised to see a general
