Washington City Election.
The first gun since the Chicago Con
vention — Democratic triumph in Washing
ton —the result distasteful to Grant as a
sol lier,arid more particularly so as a politi
cian—the great "no policy" candidate con
demned in the house of his friends. Not
withstanding Congress had enfranchised
niggers and disfranchised white men in the
District of Columbia, the conservatives won
a glorious victory at the charter election
in Washington on Monday, by electing the
entire Democratic ticket for city officers
and a majority of Councilrnen in the vaii
ous Wards. In one Ward, which bad a
Radical majority, two niggers were elected
councilrnen.
The nigger ticket was a large placard,
with a red wood cut of Grant printt d on it,
so that the ignorant niggers could tell that
the picture-ticket was the one they had to
vote. Tney knew it in no other way.
DEATH OF JAMES BUCHANAN.
We regret to announce the death of James
Buchanan, 15th President of the United
States, which occurred at Lis residence in
Lancaster, Pa., on Monday morning the Ist
inst. James Buchanan had been in public
life upwards of forty years and bad ever prov
en a faithful and devoted public servant. Ik-
was born April 22, 1791, and was therefore
past his 77th year when he died. We shall
in our nexfcis*ue endeavor to give a sketch
of his public life.
Conservative Soldiers' and Sailors' Na

Tli" Executive Committee appointed 1v

to meet at the city of New York, the 4th
of July next, to take action on the nomina
tion of Conservative candidates for Presi
dent and Vice-President. As it is desira
ble that Pennsylvania should be fully rep
resented in said Convention, we lequest
our late conratles in arms to take the
necessary action to have delegates elected
or appointed from every Congressional
district in the State. As the time is rap
idly approaching when the Convention
will meet, there should be no delay in the
matter.

Bribery.
During the silling of the Radical Con
vention at Chicago, the following dispatch
was sent to the New dailies :
The knowledge that Senator Wade's
nomination as Vice President will prevent
the success of a pending negotiation for
the votes of two Republican Senators for
conviction, who voted against the Elev
enth Article, has virtually withdrawn him
from the contest.
On the next evening the telegraph an
nounced the nomination of Grant and Col
fax. Now let us know who are the " two
Republican Senators " for whose votes a
" negotiation " was pending; and what
bribe was offered them to vote "for con
viction ? ' eveDts*have shown that the tele
graph had same foundation in fact, let us
know if it was all true.
New Senatorial terms have been free
ly offered by Radicals for votes for con
vicitou. In other words, a splendid office
for six years, and THIRTY-SIX
THOUSAND DOLLARS have been
held out to Senators to induce tliem to
vote against the President, and a threat to
deprive them of those positions and that
money, if they did not so vote. Open and
shameless bribery.— Columbian.
Forney's Press places the following
journals on the " black list," because they
did not denounce the Republic.™ Senators
who voted for acquittal: Netv York
Evening Post , Chicago Tribune , Cincin
nati Commercial , Providence Journal,
Springfield Republican , Bridgeport Stand
ard, Buffalo Advertiser , Buffalo Express,
and Hartford Covrant. This list, it will
bo seen, embraces some of the ablest and
uiost influential journals in the country.
SPOONS.—Brute Butler has given up
for the present, all idea of getting posses
sion of the spoons of the White House.
The Radical Platform.
We give our readers the platform adopt
ed by the Mongrelists at Chicago last week.
It is a strange jumble of jargon, made up
to hoodwink and deceive. How far it
will succeed is hard to say :
The National Republican party of the
United States assembled in National Con
vention in the City of Chicago, on the 20th,
of May, 1868, make the following declara
tion of principles :
RECONSTRUCTION.
We congratulate the country on the as
sured reconstruction policy of Congress as
: evinced by the adoption in the majority of
j the States lately in rebellion, of Constitu
tions securing equal rights to all, aqd it is
the duty of the Government to sustain
those institutions and to prevent the peo
ple of such States from being remitted to
a state of anatchy. (Cheers.)
The "assured reconstruction of Con
gress" is a fraud upon the spirit of repub
licanism, forced by the arbitrary and des
j potic power of the bayonet ; a swindle and
a lie, and will prove a greater failure, ex
cept in robbery, than the impeachment.
SUFFRAGE IN THE SOUTH GOVERNED BY
CONGRESS —SUFFRAGE IN THE NORTH
GOVERNED BT TIIE STATES.
2. The guarantee by Congress of equal
suffrage to all loyal men of the South, was
demanded by considerations of public safe
ty, of gratitude, and of justice, ami roust be
maintained, while the question of suffrage
in all the loyal States properly belong to
the people of those States. (Cheers.)
Equal suffrage to the negro ; confisca
tion and disfranchisement to the whites ;
mongrel gratitude to the negro, are the pet
measures of the party.
GLITTERING GENERALITIES ABOUT TIIE
I'UBLIC DEBT.
3. We denounce all forms of repudia
tion as a national crime (prolonged cheers,)
and the national honor requires the pay
ment of the public indebtedness, in the ut
most good faith, to all creditors, at hotne
and abroad, not only according to the let—
i ter, but the spirit ot the laws under which
it was contracted. (Applause.)
i This is good; and hits Thad Stevens
and the Impeachers a terrible whack for
repudiating the Constitution. As for the
. payment of the public debt, that is thnnJ
er stolen front l'endleton, who is for pay
ing the debt off according to the law un
der which it was contracted.
ABANDONMENT OF PREVIOUS RADICAL TOL
ICT WITH REGARD TO TAXATION.
4. It i 9 due to the labor of the nation
that taxation should he equalized and re
duced as rapidly as the national faith will
! permit.
That is true, Messrs. Mongrels, it is
'•due to labor" and the world will be grat
ified to know that you profess repentance
for your acts during the past seven years
of your oppression and robbery of labor,
and exclusive privileges to the wealthy.—
Taxes should be equalized, and will be,
when power is wrested from yonr hands.
EXTEND THE DURATION OF THE DEBT RE
DUCE THE INTEREST?
5. The national debt, contracted as it
lias been for the preservation of the Union
for all time to come, should be extended
over a fair period for redemption ; and it
is the duty of Congress to reduce the rate
of interest thereon whenever it can reason
ably be done.
Yes, that is it ; extend the payment of
, the debt to all eternity. Don't repudiate
the debt, but repudiate the interest, when
I ever it can be reusonublg done
'• K GLITTERING GENERVLITV, AND A HAP AT
BUTLER.
6. That the best policy to diiqinish our
burden of debt is to so improve our credit
that capitalists will seek to loan us money
at lower rates of interest than we now pay
and must continue to pay, so long as re
pudiation, partial or total, open or covert,
is threatened or suspected.
RADICALS CUT "ECONOMY AND STOP COR
RUPTION."
7. The Government of the United States
should be administered with the strictest
economy, and the corruptions, which have
been so shamefully nursed and fostered by
Andrew Johnson, call loudly for Radical
reform.
This miserable attempt to foist the sins
of Congress on the shoulders of Andrew
Jobnsoo, is shamoful in the extreme. His
hands have been so completely tied by the
fraudulent acts of Congress, that he is al
most powerless, to punish acts of delin
quents. We have had Radical reform for
the past few years.
ANDREW JOHNSON IMPEACHMENT HOW
TO DODGE A FIZZLE.
We profoundly deplore the untimely
and tragic death of Abraham Lincoln, and
regret the accession of Andrew Johnson
to the Presidency, who has acted treacher
ously to the people who elected biin and
the cause he was pledged to support; who
has usurped high legislative and Judicial
functions ; who has refused to execute the
laws ; who has used his high office to
induce other officers to ignore and violate
the laws ; who has employed his executive
powers to render insecure the property,
the peace, liberty and life of the citizen ;
who has persistently and corruptly resist
ed, by every measure iu his power, every
pioper attempt at the reconstruction of the
States lately in rebellion ; who has per
verted the public patronage into an engine
of wholesale corruption, and who has just
ly been impeached for high crimes and
misdemeanors, and properly pronounced
guilty thereof by the vote of thirty-five
Seuators.
RIGHTS OF NATURALIZED CITIZENS.
9. The doctrine of Great Britain and
i other European powers, that because a
man is once a subject, he is always so,
must be resisted at every hazzard by the
United States, as a relic of the Feudal
times, not authorized by the law of nations
and at war with our national honor and
independence. Naturalized citizens arc
entitled to be protected in all their rights
<of citizenship as though they were native
born, and no citizen of the United States,
native or otherwise, must be liable to ar
rest and imptisonment by any foreign
power, for acts done or words spoken in
this country ; and if so arrested and im
prisoned, it is tbe duty of the Government
to interfere in his behalf.
PIFF or DEMOCRATIC SOLDIERS AND SAIL
ORS.
10. Of all who were faithful in the trials
f the late war, there were none entitled to
more especial honor than the brave sol
diers and seamen who endured the hard
ships of campaign and cruise, and imperil
ed their lives in the service ot the coun
try ; the bounties and pensions provided
by law for those brave defenders of the
nation are obligations never to be forgot
ten ; tbe widows and orphans of the gal
lant dead are the wards of the people, a
sacred legacy bequeathed to the nation's
protective care.
THREE HUNDRED they toted the nigger,
And PIFTT they voted for yon.
EMIGRATION.
11. Foreign emigration, which in the
past has added so much to the wealth, de
velopment and resources and increase of
| power to this nation —the asylum of the
I oppressed of all nations—should be foster
ed and encouraged by a liberal and just
policy,
SYMPATHY WITH EVERYBODY EXCEPT
SOUTHERN WHITE MEN AND HONEST SEN
ATORS.
12. This Convention declares itself in
sympathy with all the oppressed people
which are struggling for their rights.
The Impeachment Investigation—Exami
nation of Mr. R. W. Newton.
Mr. Ralph W. Newton, of New* York,
was the principal witness on Tbursduy.be
fore the impeachment managers, and was
under examination for four hours and a
half, with about the same results as in the
cass of Mr. Woolly. Thirty six private
telegrams ( >1 Mr. Newton's relating to all
sorts of subjects, were produced and read,
but nothing was elicited upon which to
base the shadow of a proof of corruption.
Butler asked Mr. Newton if he bad not
written a certain letter to Mr. Smythe, col
lector of New York, and went on to indi
eate the contents of the letter referred to.
The witness replied lie had ; that he hap
pened to leave 4on the table in his room
unfolded, and that it was stolen from
there.
"Who stole it ?*' inquired Butler.
"I expect yon did, * responded Newton.
The witness was put tinder arrest four
times, but as often liberated, the whole
proceeding being conducted with a moek
decorum that was quite refreshing to wit
noss. The wiiness resolutely pers sted in
refusing to disclose his private affaiis, tho
he very good limnoredly answered all the
questions lie possibly could without quite
turning himself inside out. Butler, for in
stance, read a telegram addressed to col
lector Smythe ''Come on here at once"' —
signed Newton—and a-ked witness what
nefarious scheme he had in contemp'ation
when he penned such an atrocious request
as that. Ne.wton replied he felt lonesome
and wanted Smythe to come along and
take a drink, whereupon Butler got indig
nant, and said the Board of Managers was
not to be trilled with in that fashion. A
great deal of such silly matter made tip
the fruit of to-day's investigation.
Near the close of Mr. Newton's testi
mony lie was a-keJ if he had ever known
an other of rnon-y made to the President.
He repli< d, with much grave deliberation,
that he had, and immediately all the man
agers became attentive and prepaied them
-elves, in imagination, for another article
of impeachment. lie stated that Mr. \\ m.
H. Appleton, the publisher, had come to
Washington some four or five weeks ago,
and signified to the President, through ,
Newton, that in case of his being convict
ed, several gentlemen in New York in
tended to present him with a purse of
SIOO,OOO in gold, and that the In use of
Mr. Appleton would he at his service after
he quitted the executive mansion. Incase
lie should be acquitted tbe sum to be pre
sented would he made *.">O,<'oo. There
was nothing impeachable in this, and the j
managers got disconsolate, and told the
wiiness he might go. — Washington dis

BUTLER'S INVESTIGATION. —The bribery
investigation of Butler was good tor ooe
thing. It brought out the fact that, Sena
tor Pomeroy otlered to sell bis vote and
four others for acquittal, if the President's
friends would fork over the change. That
failing to get the greenbacks, he and bis
four Senatorial palls, voted for conviction.
IST The N e\v York World publishes
official figures which show that in the
closing campaign of the war between the
Rapidan and James, Grant had a total
force of 222,000 against Lee's 70,000. —
Grant lost 117,000 in killed and wounded,
and Lee, 19,000. " All hail, butcher
Grant! " says loyality.
Radical Corruption.
The blustering attempt of Butler, the
beast, to badger tbe Republican Senators
who voted for the acquittal, by charging
them with being influenced by bribery
and corruption, met with a sad disaster in
the examination of Col. Cooper, Assistant
Secretary of the Treasury, liis testimony
makes sad work with the Senatoiial Im
peachers, and proves an unsuccessful at
tempt on their part, to make money out of
the bluster. Forty thousand dollars was
the price ofPomeroy and four mongrel
Senators. What Bntler's price wan, has
not yet been made public.
The lirst witness examined was Colonel
Edinond Cooper, Assistant Secretary ot
the Treasury. He was asked whether he
had been approached on tbe subject of
using money for the acquittal of the Pres
ident, and made in reply, tbe following
astounding and disgiaceful revelation.—
Colonel Cooper said that B person pro
fessing to act on the authority of Hon. J. C
Potm rov, Senator from Kansas, cubing on
him, Cooper, and proposed that for $40,000
in hand. Senator l'oiueroy would control
four Radical votes in the Senate, and put
in his own so as to insure the President's
acquittal. When as Colonel Cooper testi
fied, he professed to doubt this person's
authority, the person produced a li tter
from Senator Poineroy dated, day
Sin 1 will, in good laitb, carry out any
arrangement made with my brother in
law, Willis Gay lord, to which I am a par
At this juncture in the examination
Butler objected to witness's testifying to
the substance of the litter, saying that he
( Butler ) would produce it. Then, as
Colonel Cooper went on to testify, W Hi-.
Guyloid was intioiuced by the per-ori
who produced this letter, who read it to
the witness and Gaylord, the person who
first Called then retired, leaving Colonel
Cooper and Gaylord together, thereupon
Gaylord renewed the proposition, namely,
to secure five votes fur the President, for
Mo.UOO. The patronage of the Adminis
tration to be thrown in for Pumetoy in
the State of Kansas. Colonel Coop- r,
having te.-t ficd so far, said lie had believ
ed that th s proposition from Senator Pom
eroy was inten led te entrap him, and act
ing under that belief, be had determined
to lead the pat tics on to exposure, lie
assigned a reason for that belief. Firs'.,
that Senator l'omeroy was a strong parti
san, that lie felt bitterly towards the Pres
ident, and that if money was his object,
the party to which he belonged was much
moie ab'e to pay than the administration
was. Second, the person who appioachcd
h rn, Colonel Cooper, with the proportion
enumerated, ainong the uan sot Sena
tors whom Pom eroy proposed to control,
those of Morton, of Indiana, and Nye, of
Nevada. Colonel Cooper did not believe
it possible that Senator Morton could be
bought. Colonel Cooper resumed by
stating that the interviews were sought by
the persons professing to act for .S nut .r
l'omeroy. That letters wore brought
showing their authority, tint the terms
were not accepted, and that he, the wit
ness, had never intended to accept them
I'he additional testimony of Colonel
Cooper was to the effect that he was not
advised of any money having been used
10 influence Senators' votes.
When Colonel Cooper's allegations wire
brought to the notice of Tbad. Stevens,
that good man, according to a current
statement, asked :
44 Who were .present in the committee
room when Colonel Cooper was examin
ed "
Having hem told that Butler, Boutwell,
and Wilson were there, Mr. Stevens, as
the report goes, said :
4 * They arc* a set of tyros. Nobody but
a set of tyros would have admitted such
testimony. It has knocked llie impeach
ment into fits."
The erjjone of Senator Pomcroy's prop
osition has, in (act, caused a tremendous
sensation. The reputation of this paiticu
lar Senator from Kansas lias never been
too flattering, and, some of his friends
allege that 44 he really wanted the money."
The Chicago Convention— Small Dodg
ers :
It is probable that those who prepared
the resolutions of the Radical convention
thought thev were doing a smart thing in
trying to dodge the nigger suffrage ques
l.on which they did in the following man
ner :
Second. The guarrantce of Congress
of equal suffrage t<> all loyal men at. the
South was demanded by every considera
tion of public safety, of gratitude, and of
justice, and must be maintained ; while the
question of suffrage in ail the loyal States
properly belongs to the people of these
States.
Here is a plain assertion that what is a
correct principle in the Southern States
is not a correct one in northern States ;
for, if what they call equal suffrage he a
piinciple, it must apply to niggers in the
North as well as to those in the South ;
and if the question of suffrage properly
belongs to the people of States in oue sec
tion, it cannot be justly denied to the peo
ple of St.ites in another section.
A more clumsy effort to get out of a
difficulty, which arises from the knowledge
of the fact that the northern people will
not have nigger suffrage, can hardly b£
imagined. Its stupidity is only equalled
by the reasons given for establishing one
principle in the South, and allowing the
people to establish another in the North ;
44 gratituJe and justice to the niggers."
A considerable nnmber of northern nig
gers entered the Federal armies during
the war, while the southern ones were
willingly working on southern plantations
to produce subsistence for the rebel armies;
and yet we are told that our gratitude
should be shown to those who sustained
the Confederate forces ; but gratitude does
not require us to give suffrage to the nig
gers who entered our armies to fight a
gainst the rebels.
Radical principles are very curious things
especially when the liadical party is in 44 a
very bad box."— Bradford Argus,
Wendell Philips Gives It Up.
There is something ominous for the
Radical party in Wendell Philips' late
speech. It is not that he berates that
party and declares that unless it do >o and
so it is lost, since this has been the staple
of his talk for some years past, but that he
seems to consider it so irn-trieveably lost
that he will not even put himself to the
trouble of giving it good advice. Hereto
fore he has been Mentor, pointing out
bow the future might redeem the past,
but in this last discourse assumes the tone
of Casandra, and weeps over the ruins it
is given the prophetic eye to see. The
pa>t, the past, the past, is the burden of
Mr. Philips' elegiac remaiks, and when
was it before that this prompt, fi. ry, clear
hea ied enthusiast ever poured himself
forth by the hour in that species of la
mentation which has no parallel but in
tears that aie shed over spilt milk ? Ouce
he was ready enough to blaze out the way
for the party, and sooner or later, it is to
the credit of his frantic logic, that pariy
toiled on up to the advancid ideas he left
in the read for their guidance. Ilut now
all is changed The seer is sunk in the
crone. Jlr. Philips no longer prophesies.
He weeps, and weeps in the fiun persua
sion thai liadicoli.-ni has been def. ated in
as he well calls it, its " death grapple ; "
that the liuhl has been fought and the
victory is woB : that his principles have
received their death blow, and he is too old
to hope to live to see their resurrection.—
Wendell Philips foretold secession, and it
came; emancipation and it came; and
now that he has foretold the overthrow,
utter and awful, of the liadidal party, we
have only to wait for November to see that
this third in his trinity of great predictions
is true too. — World.

Casting a<\le the co-t of the war, radical
legislation has expended f" 150,060,0ut! per
annum in the effort to make a b'aek bal
ance of power that will control the Pres
ident! d election and injure a radical Pres
ident.
I- it not a monstrous proposition that
7'to,o jo black voters, who have cost the
white tax-payers <d the North 5150,0j0.
000 per annum are to be used to put down
those same white tax payers at the hallot
b x. and defeat their will in the: election o!
a Pre-idi at
Senator Landon and Corruption.
The following extracts in relation io
Sena'- r Landon's hontsfy we clip from
two Radical papers, which am among the
faithful and supposed to speak the truth
about their own party men :
We regret to learn there is a str. no
probability that the Republicans of Iliad
ford di-tuct will return li>*v. George Lan
don to tlie State S-nate That he posses
ses uncommon abilities as a d b t r is ac
knowledged al hands, but lie has made
a repiration in other particulars w Inch ren
dors ii Lig'-ly desirable that he should be
remitted to the duties of puvate life.—
Pittsburg GiZitle.
No Senator on either siile of tie Cham
ber was connected by the common rumor
of the lobby, with more corruption than
the Hew <■! o. London. We of eoar-c make
no charge against Mr. L„ nor ilo we re
peat what others so frequently and so
boldly alleged again t him. but we do say
that either (ieorge Landon was recklessly
slan iered last winter, or he willfully dis
regarded his oath as a Senator, and perill
ed his high reputation as a professing
Christain. —// u rifbur<j State Guard.
