The meeting of tbe honorably discharged soldiers to select delegates to the soldiers' Johnson and Clymcr Convention, os it is called, at Harrisburg, on the 1st of August, enmo off on Wednesday last, intlie County Commissioners' room. Somo disturbance was apprehended when it was observed that more than three-fourths of the soldiers present were Geary men. But when it was an nouueed that the friends of Mr. Clymcr only were included in the call, the soldiers in favor of Oen. Geary very properly with drew and organized a meeting in tlio old Court House, the proceedings of which will be found in another column. Tho Clymcr meeting was necessarily very slim affair, as far as soldiers were con cerned. It nevertheless afforded an opportu nity for some of those patriots who bravely fight for office, if they do not fight for thcir country, to show up the faults, and perhaps errors, of those who were guilty of the folly and temerity of going into the service to fight against those unfortunate Southern democrats, vulgarly called rebels, who aim ply desired to be "let alone." Soon after tho resolutions were read, w observed Mr. Reimensnyder on the floor, We did not hear much of Mr. R.'s discourse, but what we did hear convinced us that he was still strong in the faith of Southern do, mocracy and Southern institutions. As Virginian, his hatred of Yankees, whom ho traduced, was natural. lie, no doubt, could see more virtues in Gen. Lee, Toombs, or even Jeff. Davis, than in any Yankee, living or dead. He spoke of some Yankee missiona ries or preachers, who went among the negroes in tho South, swindling them out of their money, or treasures on earth, witbt ut, er- liaps, even helping them to treasures in Heaven. All this was ceitainly very naughty in persons wearing the "livery of Heaven." We have no doubt he thought it bad enough for preachers to indulge in politics, not excepting himself, but to swindle the poor negroes out of their hard earnings, by Yankee preachers was villainy in tbe ex treme especially as they had no right, Con stitutional, hereditary or divine, to rob the negroes of anything. Negroes were purely Southern products, and part and parcel of Southern institutions. And when Chief Justice Taney decided that "negroes had no rights which white men wcro bound to ro spect," he evidently meant Southern white men, else how could Yankee preachers do wrong in plundering them. Mr. R., no doubt, satisfied his audience that preachers are human, as well as Yankees and negroes- J3F"Tho Democrat, of last week, says tho Republicans nominated Mr. Rothcrmcl as a reward "for his services against old citizens, to make them 'hoist the flag, &c.' " The object of the above charge is to create an impression that Mr. Rothermel assisted or encouraged persons to compel Mr. Wagner, of Little Mahanoy township, to raise tho American flag over his house, which was the subject of a prosecution in Court. Mr. Rothermel requests us to say that there is no truth whatever in tho charge That lie can prove by democrats, neighbors of himself and Mr. Wagner, that he not only took no part in that matter, but that he en tteavorcd to persuade those who were im" plicated not to engage iu any such trasac tion. 1 a a r 52?Hiostcr Clymer, in a speech at Read ing recently, said "his history as a politician was the history of the State for the last six years, and he would not to-day alter a line or bolt out a particle of it." In 1804 ho voted against a resolution that the Scnato of Pennsylvania urge upon Congress tho pro priety of increasing the pay of the Army. Now he asks the very men to vote for him against whom he voted. Z3f Blackwood for June. This num ber contains the conclusion of the memoris of the Confederate war for Independence a work that may be read for amusement, but certainly not for correct information. Tho author, Heros Von Borcke, was the chief of Btaff to Gen. Steuart, the great rebel cavalry chief. The review cf the life of Steele, does not add to the reputation of that author whose association with Addison had much to do with his fame as an author. A new version of Burn's well-known poem "A man's a man for a' that" by Charles Markay, is a very clever production. "The Political Crisis" is an interesting article on British politics.

In pursu ance of a call in the Northumberland County Democrat, of honorably discharged soldiers, to meet at Sunbury on the 25th inst.,' for the purpose of electing delegates to attend the Soldiers' Johnson and Clymer Convention at flarrisburg, on the 1st of August, 1800, a number of soldiers assembled in the Com missioners' Room in the new Court House, over which meeting Dr. Newbaker was call ed to preside. . It was soon apparent that a large majority, perhaps three-fourth of the soldiers present, were the friends and supporters of General Geary. In order to avoid any confusion or difficulty, Lieut. A. Brlce, of Sunbury, in quired of the chairmain whether tho meeting was Intended for all honorably discharged soldiers, or only for such soldiers as were in favor of Hicster Clymcr for Governor. The chairman stated that the meeting was only for soldiers favorable to Clymer. Where upon at least three-fourth of the soldiers withdrew to the old Court House, and or ganized by appointing Capt. A. CALDWELL, President. Corp'!. N. F. Lightner and Scrgt. II. D. Wharton, Vice Presidents. Cwrt. J. E. Torrington and Cait. II. Pain ter, Secretaries. On motion a committee of seven, viz: Lieut. A. N.

The committee after an absence of fifteen minutes returned and reported the follow. ing resolutions, which were unanimously adopted : Resolved, That while wo hoartlly endorse Maj, Oen. John W. Geary, the Union candidate for Gov ernor, and while his distinguished career, in tbe ior vice of the Republic, elicit our admiration, we a haartilv condemn the political action of lleutor Cly mcr, the oandidnte of the so-called Democratic party, for hii ncrsistont attempts to thwart nil legislation having for its object the benefit of the soldiers of the country, and especially those of 1'ennsylvania, by having votod in his pluca against granting them the riahtnf auffroiro. while battling noblv for tho nation, giving their lives a sacrifice, that the Republic might WTi;ni;sTi tpi;i:cnor o. i HUUIlMAi'i.

That wo heartily endorse the ro-con. struction volley of Congress, and we look to the loyal majority of that body, as our only guarantee and hope of the Republic, and of the sacred princi ples for which we fought and suffered privation in tno open neiu.

Unfortunately for me, I was not so favored as you have been, and I regret it now and shall regret it to the end of time. I was compelled to pick up what little knowledge I possess by grasping it, as it were, through brambles, and I some times had my hand pretty sharply pricked, too. You have had tnoso around you who have gladly told you everything you desired to know, whose minds were well stored with the richest learning of the past. And now, young men, you must look out for your selves. Applause.

Applause. My young friends, I remember that twenty-six years ago I stood as jou now stand, about to go forth to do whatever might fall to my share, and I now find myself here in the prcsenco of men who were graduates of this college before I was born. It appears to me almost like sacrilege for mo to stand up in thcir presence and attempt to give advice or instruction, and I would not presume to say ono word had not your honored president asked me to do it; probably for somo reason unknown to mo.

Shortly afterward, just about twenty years ago, 1 remember sitting with many young officers Braxton Bragg was one at tho dining table of the Hon. James Pettigrcw. I believe the best Union man present will not doubt tUe loyalty oi Mr. fottigrew, lor ho was loyal in 1831. He was tho only loyal intelligent man in Charleston during the rebellion, and he is loyal now. Mr. ettigrew listened to our complaints that our future looked poor, and that the only promise held out to us was a brevet-major commission and command of some littlo post ou thc New England coast. Ho told us, "Gentlemen, do not be alarmed ; there is Providenco guides tins world, anil you young men will yet have to await an oppor tunity to put your talents to use." His lan guage gave us encouragement. Tho Mexi can war soon broke out, and I was sunt to California, where in my wandering I saw the first pieces of gold discovered, and watched its magical ellect upon tue whole worm. The discovery of that gold gave millions to America, and I doubt much whether, if that gold had not been discovered, the nation would nave managed to worn out me pro blem of finance which the war of rebellion had raised, and preserved its present glori ous position. That gold gave us wealth and credit abroad, and a strength and durability which survived the war. After some years again went South, and all at once I paused to see and feel in the very air that we were upon the verge of a sectional war. I had heard it spoken of ia Charleston. We had laughed and joked over it at the mess table. hud heard it discussed by politicians : I had heard General Scott say we were upon the eve of war ; but my mind never realized it until the spring or summer of 1800, when was in rtew Orleans and Baton Rouge. Then, for the first time, I saw that it was not all talk. That cry of wolf, wolf, meant something, and that civil war was upon us sure enaugh ; and what has been tho issue f You all know it has been a short war to tho world at large, but long enough to ns du ring thoso dark days which formed the early part of it. I will not review it. Let Imtory take charge of it. All I will say is that in that war arose men, one by one, equal to the emergency, until the war closed and the nation was saved. Applause.
