Both DRrtles the Democratic and Re I publican I" Pennsylvania are,ln the field with their candidates lor Governor, une Issue made np between the parties Is clear and . distinct. There is no snullllug or ' doilglng.i The Democratic party have In dorsed the policy of thePrealdent and have commended the Senators ana Congressmen who have stood by hltn. On the other hand, the Republican Convention have lu dorsed the Radicals la Congress, and by Implication have condemned the President. Thev even went so far as to censure Sena- Ltor Cowan because he voted to sustain the President In his veto, and requested him to rexign. We are heartily glad the issue has been presented so ruggedly. It. now re mitns to be teen wh. ther the President will allow his officeholders to contribute to the success ot tlie party - that thus brazenly seeks to put him to shame. Gen, GxarV, the Republican nominee for Gover nor, was Colonel Foknev's candidate, and be, undoubtedly, had a hand lu framing the nintinrmj So far. Colonel Forniy and gTvr.NS are triumphant, and with a reck less boldness they have challenged thePres Went to do his worst.. To com pass the de feat of these men will require prompt and mifileenlnact vlty. The men wno mar shal the Radical forces in Pennsylvania are bold, unscrupulous and untiring men.wno fight campaigns somewhat after the style that Oily Gammon fought the famous Tit tlebat Tithoubi contest for a seat la Pat liament. ' -; ' - Have Your Heard of Such a Thing? "Ohthe Copperheads support Johnson's policy, ana, tnereiore, h muw be Intrinsically wrong," exclaim the cham pions of the Disunion cause of Sumnkr, Stevkhs and Phillips. Now, have you ever heard these gentlemen object to the "Copperheads" voting for their candidates? Have, you ever heard them declare that there must be something wrong with their platform or the soundness of their candi dates, upon the Intimation that "Copper heads" intended supporting them f. Noth ing of the sort. Col. Forniy, in writing to his Press under date of the 6th l ist touching the action of the Pennsylvania Democratic State Convention, says : fit n-aa littifi icrnlfl(Miiit thnt while this Convention was deliberating, the people of since the veto of the President and his 22 J of February speech, gave a larger vote and a la-ger nmjority for the Republican can didate than ever before, and this, too, with the Opposition lully organized upon the issues growing out of these two extraor dinary executive demonstrations." If "the people of Portland, Maine, at the first election held since the veto of the President and his 22d oi February speech, gave a larger vote and a larger majority lor the Republican candidates than ever be fore,'! they must have unquestionably done so through the aid of "Copperheads;" and if there is cause tor Radicals to rejoice over a combination of Radicals and "Copper heads" to repudiate the President's Reor ganization policy, wherein consists the Im policy or want ot patriotism in Conserva tive Republicans uniting with and voting for Democratic candidates who do support the President,? If there would be Impro priety la such action we should be obliged to some one to point It out to us. . Well, Why Don't They Indorse Him, then? By a "loyal" journal,, we are told that the' Copperheads occupy precisely the same ground that tbey did durine the war -the President the exact opposite." It this is the case, why dou't the Repub licans throughout the country indorse the President, then ? "Why do they accuse htm With " Tylerizing" the party with being as bad as Benedict Arnold and Aaron Burr as being guilty of usurpation that would have cost him his head In a certain period of English history, and all that Will some "loyal" journal answer us? Can Be No Compromise. The CfeMland Leader (Radical) asserts that the difference between the President and "the Union men" "is fundamental," and, therefore, "cannot be 'harmonized' or compromised;" that "Mr. Johnson stands on the same platform with Vallandigham, and no true Union man can stand there with him," that "if he will come back to" them, "well and good," but It declares they "can never go over to hlin." - How Can You do It? To the President Republican politicians say: "Beware of the Copperheads. Their indorsement of your course will be death to you." To Democrats they say : "How can you support the President? Ills views In regard to the Freedmen's Bureau and Southern Representatives are diametrically opposed to you," The object of all this is to secure strength to the Radicals. Special Dispatch to Forney's Press.] Weak-Kneed Compromise. WASHINGTON, March 6, 1866. There Is a class ot inconsistent Unionists here who are disposed to compromise with the Executive; or, in other words, to keep him in the party. They are willing to sac rifice principle, Ignore the existence of the great loyal Republican party, and allow the friend of a faction to d ictate to and over ride a majority. It Is gratifying to know that our Representatives remain firm and consistent. , There can be no compromise. It is impossible to convert or commit the President to the policy as announced and reiterated by the saviors ol theUulon.- His actions Indicate, that he agrees with the remnants of the rebellion, affiliates with Northern Copperheads, and remains true to his Southern instincts. Then and Now. Four years ago we were assailed on ev ery hand by the toyoZ"JVeuw,"ot this place, its "Annotators" Dorms n, and donlui cor respondents, as a "rebel,'? a "traitor," and almost nightly threatened with mob violence, lor advocating the same doctrine now contended for by the President, who was eiectct or me pany u mmu wm above named blood-thirsting creatures be longed. jNow, it seems that we are the only editor n' "Old Highland" who dares to come out fairly, squarely and unreservedly In support of said President and bis.pollcy. We have now the best of authority the as sertion of their own President for the re taliation; but we have too much magna nimity and fellow-leeling to call them "traitor," however much they may be en titled to the application ot such an epithet. Poor souls, we pity them, though they merit nothing more than our most lneffa ble contempt. Highland Democrat. " General Scott Indorses President Johnson.

A gentleman Just from nished us with the particulars of a fearful tragedy which was enacted in that town last Monday night resulting in the death ot Professor J.Madison Evans, by violence, at. the -hands of Dr. Ben. Newland. The cause which Impelled Dr. Newland to Im bue his hands In a fellow creature's blood Is said to have been the seduction of his daughter by Evans. Miss Newland, we learn, has been at boarding school for some lime, and her unfortunate condition becom ing known to the Principal, she was sent home, . arriving at Bedford on Monday, where sheconfessed to her father and de nounced Evans as the man who had effect ed her ruin. ' It Is said that Evans accom plished the Seduction of the girl some years ago, when she was quite young, and was going to school to him, and has been Inti mate with her ever since, the Intimacy final ly resulting In the girl's becoming enciente. ber dismissal from , the boarding school she was attending, and confessing to her father as before stated. Upon learning the foul dishonor brought upon his' child. Doctor Newland, frenzied with rage and shame, armed himself with a revolver, and a long, sharp knife such as surgeons nse In amputating, and started forth to seek the gouty wreven. ue wens to Evans' boose, but found him absent. The Doctor told Mrs. Evans th circumstances, and that be had eomfl to kill her husband. and wonld kill him as toon as he could una him. Passing up tho street be met vK vans, and as soon as be was satisfied In regard to bis identity, shot him down, the ball taking effect in bU body, Evans fell to the earth, and began Imploring Newland to spare him. Newland advanced to where he was lying, plunged the long knife into bis neck and nearly severed the head from the body, lie then subbed blm repeatedly In differ ent parts of the persorv and did not desist un',U It was evident that the sinful spirit of the wretched man had taken Its flight. i The above Is the story we heard It. Thera may be tome trifling Inaccuracies, but we are assured that, In the main, it Is a correct version ot the terrible affair."-'" Professor - Evans wa a minister of tho ChTlatian Church, who at one time enjoyed a position of considerable eminence. He was once a professor in the Northwestern Christian University of this city, and was the auuhoi of a popular work called "The f i i-w lii.i Tloneer Preachers of Indiana." He Is the same person who. some, weeks Rffo, wa4 de tee ted in flagrante delicto with another man's wife at a ho el In Ureencastle.
