Thomas Dunu'a Last Squirm
The Editor of the ltepublioan, is evi
dently alarmed ha knows that by hi3
unreasonable demands, unjust acts and im
politic ooursc,lrc has drivon from his sup
port his Grit, best and most influential)
friends, lie now realizes tho serious fact
that he must either yiold to their wishes
or lose his humble an J ill-gained position
both as Editor and officer. To prevent
this tho cntiro editorial of his last issue,
was devoted to the endorsement of Presi
dent Johnson's policy, and to tho wily en
deavor lo make good honest Republicans
believe that tho Democrats arc playing at
his (Dr. John's) game of low cunning,
which is entirely beneath the dignity and
honor of the Democrat;, besides being aj
liaro falsehood'.
Senator Buokalow, as a generous and
liberal man may or may not assist the
Republicans in procuring a man to edit
tho proposed new paper, but as to tho facts
of its origin being, from a Democratic
Eoa'rca and in aid of Demoeratio principles
arc entirely unfounded and absurd. Wo
belicvo that no Democrat will, and wo
know that none should) suffer themselves
to bu engaged a tho effort of ousting Dr.
John from tho head of the Republican par
ty of thh county and placing a better
man in his stead ; which is the exclusive
object of tho intonded paper, all of which
will tend to their boneGt and advantugo
and to the disadvantago of tho country
and the Democratic party.
Marching On.
Tho New York Tribune says "John
llrown's soul is marching onl"
Wo think so. A number of peoplo think
so. John Brown in tho body corporate
marched off through Kansas and else
where, stealing horses and other property.
file marched to steal niggers and break
laws, till at last ho marched into eternity
by a different line. And now wa judge
1 1 is eoul is marching on ! It marched
through custom houses, post offices, col
lector's bureaus, legislatures and congress,
stealing by the gross. It marolied away
from lho While IIouso lately with ninety
largo boxes in oharge, and left the Preti-

John Brown stands by His sido, so tar
above him, in spito of every obstacle that
could bo throwu in his way in spito of

It makes a diffcronoo who kicks! If
wo say a word against Lincoln, people
swear, curse, denounoo and abuso us with
out stint or limit. But ono of his followers
and glorificrs, now that .the illustrious is
no moro, indulges in very queer talk.
And tho idea that John Brown, a notori-

well satisfied.
Elijah It. IkeTjER, E6q , of Blooms
burg, lias purchased tho cntiro establish
I mont of tho old Columbia Democrat.
Mr. Ikelek, is a young gentleman of high
character, known integrity and fino abili
ty a sound Democrat, a chaste literary
Writer and a fluent public Speaker. Wo
commend him as such to our friends and
tho public the noblo lion-hcaitod Democ
racy of Columbia, to whoso liberal pat
ronage and generous confidence wo are
mainly indebted for whatever of success
has attended our poor labors anil placed
this establishment upon a permanent basis
and career of unexampled prosperity.
Mr. Ikelcr announces elsewhere in our
columns his intentions in relation to the
future conduct of this journal.
Subscribers and advertisers who havo
overpaid their accounts!, will havo a orcdit
for tho same on the Books of our suec.
sor, and all unexpired contracts will be
fulfilled by him. We shall uso our efforts
to have all tho busincs3-minutia of ths of
fice satisfactorily urranged. More cannot
bo promised or expected.
And hero wo might close thu bri'f Vale
dictory, and drop tho Pen, were it not that
the present untoward condition of affairs
would seem to require at least a passing
notice on the stato of tho country.
My Pellow-CountryineD, wo aro now
in tho midst of another, and what promi
ses to bo a fearful, if not a blooily Revo
lution. The spirit of fauatioism, troason
and disunion, has unfortunately, for tho
honor of tho nation, and tfic happiness of
tho country, placed a lot of traitors to tuo
Constitution in high positions under tho
Government. Stevons, Sumner, Wilson,
& Co., have determined to rule or ruin tho
country. And for this purpose thoy havo
thrust upon tho people tho odiou3 measure
of AVi'io Suffrage. Thoic traitorous con
spirators have mado tho issue with the
people and tho President, and scorn deter
mined that tueso btates snail not be re
united that Pcaco shall not be restored
that tho Government of our Patriotic
Fathers shall be broken up, and that
death, devastation aod anarchy shall again
pervade our common country. President
Johnson has sworn to support tho Con
stitution and sec the Laws faithfully ad
ministered. We only ask him to main
tain his Constitutional Oath inviolate
not to commit perjury and he will bo sus
tained and tho honor of the .oountry pre
served. Tho Southern States must cither
bo brought back into tho Union, or they
will bo kept out, and in tho latter event,
JVegro Equulity will bo forced upon the
PcOjile against their will and remon
strance. Upon this great matter of tho franchise
privilege, depend consequences, for weal
whioh are to consummate our lata unhap

Pob. 21th 1800.
Veto of the Negro Bureau !
Wo havo not room to-day for tho rocs
sarro of tho President vetoing tho "Preod
men's Bueeau Bill." Tho main objec
tions to tho bill aro : It gives too inuoh
power to tho executive, it is too expensive
and burdenaomc; it is unnoceessary ; it was
passed in thu absencu of rrprcsentation
of tho Statc3 chiefly io be affected by it ;
and, finally, it is uuoousliitftional.
Wo freely and candidly deoliiro says
tho Fatriolc & Union, that this mosiagg
of Mr. Johnson is a most masterly paper j
oloar, searching, unanswerable. It dives not iZicrcly that the revolutionists in Oou
to the verv bottom of the oubject and cress hayo been rcbukid, and one of their
overturns the shoddy Hruoturo of tho Yan-
keo negro rushlights J3 though it were
built of paper. Wo will prict this truly
state3tiiauliko message to morrow, and
hope that every man woman and ohild
will road it and thank its author as wc do
from their very heart of hearts; In tho
namo of our Demoeratio patrons wo thank
President Johnson for the stand ho has
thm taken to protect lho white laboring
tax pay'iug masses of tho oountry from
cxtorlionato oppression.
In tho Sonato when the massago was
road, an effort was mado during the ex
citement, and indignation of tho radicals,
to pass the bill over ihe voto, but it was
soon evident that two-third could not be
socurcd. A voto to postpone stood
ayes 17; nays 29; and as this test was
considered a suffieiout danipcncr, tho Sen
ato soon adjourned without even discuss
ing tho subject they decided not to post-
pouo. A "loyal" negro organ says that
while the message was being read "brows
woro knit and many oouutonancc3 boro
an unusally stern and determined expres
sion." Of course, thore is now wooping
and wailing in tho negro camp
Lieut. D. Loicenburg. At tho risk of
iuouring the disploasuro of this gentleman,
wc voluntarily take the responsibility of
putting his namo in print, as this may be
the hist opportunity we 6liall havo of do
ing him justice. Mr. LowExuunois not
only a worthy citizen and gentleman, in
tho fullest acceptation of tho terms, but is
also a man of the most enlarged liberality
and -acknowledged patriotism. Wo need
only add, that he has ever been a consist
ent Democrat, and the best friend wc ever
had sicoc wc located in liloomsburj;.
Tho Ledger's correspondent says lliero
aro serious doubts about tho admission of
Colorado as a State; and that a sharp fire
will bo oponcd against hor in both bran
ches in which the whole combined Sumncr
Stovens strength will bo concentrated.
All this because her constitution was not
mado by negroos instead of white people
as it was. It now becomes a recognized
principle 01 iiepuuiioanism, as a.stortca
and debasad by its leaders, that no State
is 'rcpublioan in form' which docs not al-
principle of Republicanism, as distorted
low negroes to volo.

rcau Bill !
The peoplo breathe moro freely. The
cloud that hovered o'er the Republic lias
brokeD, and, although the storm is not yet
over, thcro is light on the horizon and the
promiso of rest and safety. It is not
morely that an unjust, unnecessary and
unconstitutional bill has been vetoed, it is
sohomes frustrated, but, better than that,
tho President has. flung defiance in the
faces of the Radicals, af.d the republican
ism of our country is sure of a champion,
in tho person of its Chief Magistrate,
against tbo ambition and fanaticism of the
arrogant faction, whoso intrigues and rcok
less legislation threatened the very life
ossouec of our political system;
Tho long-wished for hour has-comc that
elevates Mr. Johnson into tho glorious po
sition of defender of the Constitution.
The Radicals may rail, and plot, and fling
their fire-brands into the Congressional
arena. Stevens may ' vent hh rage and
Sumner declaim in the polished rhetoric
of abuso, but the spell is broken, the
meshes have been rent asunder, the voice
of authority has been heard in lerms that
cannot be mistaken, and lho people arc
ready to respoud with au earnestness that
will endure no opposition. The masses
have waited but for tho signal from the
leader, in whoso hands dwells tho power
to baffle the disunion conspirators. Thoy
have not wailed in vain. Andrew John
son has throwu down the battle gaga and
let tho Radicals tako it up if they dare
the days of their power arc numbered.
