Republican editor of thi place is ; considerably exercised about ibe starting of a new paper ia this cocr.ty,r;y the disorgan - izntn his own party. Ha seems to think - It a fixed fact that another paper, ia the . support sod holding to the same principles of the rr,J to which he belongs, will be ' established, and in strong and loud-souhdiog " words caotiona his patrons not to touch or handle the unclean thtag, at it would only -' have the effect lo weaken acd destroy that unionism of which he so much boast in this county. It is asserted In this Republican that the new institution is to be an Andrew JAason organ, and that Senator BtrcssLiw is leading his efforts to effect kt hit object . This litter we know nothing about, but f -ecncede that information entirely to the editor 'of the Republican. We scarcely dsern ' it necessary to warn oor Democratic fr'rends against subscribing, or in any way patronizing, the -new paper. The Demoe rarj of Colombia county sustain their press ; " and stand to-day, as they always have stood by the sop port of the President, so far as he has gone right ; and in doing this, they have not yet found it expadiect to become ' tae dopes of a set of unprincipled scoun drels who manage ai:d shape the affairs of rhe Republican party. This party estab- liahed an organ to do their blowing ia this county ; and it now has become apparent to many of them, when it is most too late, that the man who handled the horq has been blowing it successfully for bis own -aggrandizement. This may be sufficient .grounds with some peop!e for the establish H.ent of another Republican paper, but iib many honest men who have allowed themselves to become the tools lo do the bidding of the fugleman of the Republican , party in this county, it will not meet with much favor; hence the Republican editor and Rsvtnve Asstssor should not squirm and wriggle omit he has, as we think, some s'ronger evidence of his downfall. The ..poor fellow imagines that Senator Bccxalew is after him, acd that he beholds. wi;h his fnnoinooa eyes, the broad vortex of ruin . -into which he is about to be so ruthlessly ;ptungeL Senator Scckalxw is a hard man 4o fight, and when he takes anything into . Ti head he generally goes through with it ... regardless of expense or labor; but our experience and acqnaintance wi n him, leaches us to know that he gives his an en . .. tion lo larger game than looking after Re publican editors of the Thomas Dunn stripe. If it is necessary that the Republican . party of this county have another paper, . one that will give President Johnson a more hearty and unflinching support than the one they now nave, in God's name start it; for, so far as. the Democracy are concerned, they have no protest to make; they hate their paper, and with the support the Pres ident receives through them, they are en tirely satisfied. The Republican editor not dicing willing to come out squarely in favor of the President's reconstruction policy, is alleged by the men whom he sees fit to call - djtarganizers, at ont of the reasons for es tatlishing an Andrew Johnson paper in op- .- posi.ionto the Republican. This reasoc the ...self-conceited and bombastic editor attempt :ic argue out of the case by saying that be if wed; by Andrew Johnson now and al way has . been one of bis warmest sup porters; but men who voted for Akcrew Jchkio bare very great doubts on that - eobjectjvand the agitation in the Republi can raaks over the starting of another paper is one jo the results of this doubt. They r iiave failed to see in the columns of that de JeetaUe sheet, the Republican, many short ... patriotic. speeches, delivered to the different Southern delegations, on reconstruction, as well as the late speech to the Fred. Doug. -. las delegation, that vi-hed him for the pur pese of insisting on the right-of suffrage beiDg extended to all their b'ack brethren. Of coarse this speech did not nit the Re publican man and be gave it the get by ; yet be claims to support the Prtsident! l5e en dorses the acts of -Cbngfeas in their nugro suffrage vote, which is in direct hostility to ' the expressed sentiments of the Pre.sident( ,bat still he supports Andrew Johnson. .- TIiJ Frcedaen'i Bareaa Bill Tetoed. On the 19;h of February, 1866, Andrew t Johnson, President of these (Jailed States, ..delivered to Congress a message vetoing the Ftaedmen'e Barsao Bill. This is one of the best acts of his life, and history will so record it, one too that be ned never regret. The whole; country, north end couth, can't " kelp bot sustain him in this veto. An ef fort, it is thought, will be made by the rad icals te past the bill over his head by a two-third. vote. , We have our doubts wheth er these radicals can 'marshal force enough to no mis in opposition to me rresiaeni. T.e Republican, claiming to sopport the President, is it possible that they .wjU now tern toond and oppose the government 1 They dare ml do this, to be consistent with i&eir tormer , preacniag. - Let teem- ngnt lo bnsou it tney they think ' there is' no hareafier." -... . ' . The Romp Congress will have1 to do one of two Tilings ; Support or oppose the Pre idsnt. The nigger bill has-brought things To that poioi. " ' - Ti Car Patrons."

Ikklkb, Eq., the present proprietors of the respective offices have thought it best for the Democratic par ty, as well as to their own ioierestso merue the" two papers and 'hereafter "publih but one. What the title of that paper will be is Dot yet fuHy decided. It has been pro posed to drop ite name of the Srsa or the NokTH, and on the other hand to drop the name of the Colcmbu Democbat. .This, of course, would not auit all, let either title be dropped. BatVith us, individually, it mat ters little what the name shall be, and with our patrons it should be a mstter of small concern, only that we furnish them with a good paper. It i our intention to make the new paper a more readable sheet than our patrons are now- teceiving ; to give it more life, originality, local and general news. In its appearance we would at-k our patrons, and the pablio generally, to not look for any decided ' improvement, as that will be im posile oniilonrnew material arrives,wbich we have ordered. Oar facilities for execoting job work are not surpassed in this section, and it is our intention to ti extend them. For neat ness and dispa'cb, in executing work, this office cannot be surpaned. Signs of the Timet. The people throughout the whole State seem to be coming back again to reason and common tence; they are exhibiting in their actions a willingness to abandon their fa natical notions, bich have had full control ol their better judgment for the past five years. Al! the town and city elecliocs held within the past month indicate a return of the people to firnt principles, those laid down and promu'gated by our forefathers, and maintained many long years enchanged by the people, until the dominant psr'y came into power. Since the advent of the Republican party into position, the order of the day has been, in all the departments, from the most humble to the highest, ruin and destruction. This the people have felt, to tbeir heart's conlent,in various ways, and a disposition now prevails to a very great extent, to chacge tne present syttem of managing the affairs of our government; and in order to do that, all bands agree, that the present party in power must be dis placed. This change is being imperatively demanded by the people of all parties of these United - States. These are stubborn facts, aud may alarm the Republican party, but we can't help it. It is the truth; the hand writing ran plainly be seen on the wall. Read the speeches of the shoddy leaders on btick suffrage, then glance" over the columns of their party organs -and no lice the lame support they receive, and you can't help but come to the coaclasiou, "all is right for the Democracy next Fall.-"' Lee aud Sterens. We are told that Gen. Robert E. Lee is in attendance at Washington u.ider a subparts of a committee of which Mr. ThadJeus Stevens is chairman. It must be an interes ting picturethe soldier who has faced danger in every form brought in fror.l of a mao who orce, in a panic, ran away and jumped out of a back window. It strikes ns that itis hardly in good las e and perhaps not consistent with good faith to make pa roled prisoner of war an unpardoned rebel a witnefs before a hostile tribunal, and that, too, on subjects not military. The law of war ia very strict asto violation of parole. Not only acts but words may break it, and one of the first frjits of this interrogation may, as in the case of Admiral Semmes, be she close confinement of the President of Washington Colie3 in a military prison. Besides, what can Gece.?l Lee, who has been in the field for three years v?ithool in termisAioo, know about reconstruction on the new basis. We pity him ia the hands of Stevens and his committee. KotbJBg Legal In it. When one hnndred and twenty members of the Rump House voted for the constitu tional amendment changing the basis of representation, the Speaker announced that two-thirds having voted for ir, it was paseed. But iwo'ihirds of the House did not vote for i: only two thirds of a fragment of the House voted for it.

By the same rule the next Con gress may undo all the legislation perform ed by the present Rump.--&un6ury Democrat 'Precept v. Pkactice. As a supplement to the vote ef Ben, Loan on nigger sfifTr?a in the District of Colombia, we take (be following from the St Jo. Herald, an in tensely Radical sheet : 'Charlotte Loan, a colored womao of aboot 22 years of age, died in this city a few days ago, and was buried by the chari ty of the colored .people. This woman was 4 formerly the property of Ben. Loan, who misrepresents this district in Congress. She bad toiled many a long day without compensation, for ber bard-hearted and close-fisted master, and when she came to die, after a lingering illness, Mr. Loan a lowed her lo be cared for and consigned to her final resting place by the contributions of her poor friends. Comment is unneces sary, ji is uui cnaraciensuc ot me man. He coeld take the poor woman's earnings for years, until the emancipation ordinance noloosed her shackles, . but .never a cent would he give lo bury her." .

During the four past years the eduetional interests of the Commonwealth have been effected more or less unfavorably by the war. Fewer school houses have been built, and ol thoe erected, there less In number of first class houses, less furniture has been furnishe d and less apparatus been pro cured than in former yeafs. Many districts whose directors intended to put fine school buildings, upon large and commodious lots, during these four years, have vet their old, dilapidated, inconvenient bouses, loca ed at the corners where the public roaJs meet. Many houses that would but for the war, hare been well supplied with good furna tore and apparatus, are yet without either. Still the greatest injuries that the schools have sustained is the withdrawal of so large a number of our best male teachers. In counties where none but males have previ ously been employed ' as teacher, many of the schools have" bean closed, because do teachers could be proenred. Females, not bavins: teen expected to teach in these counties, had not previously prapared them selves for the .position. Thus the schools were left without teachers in some cases, and with incompetent ones in others Superintendents were obliged to issue cer tificates to individuals that woold not, u nder other circumstances, have received them, directors were forced to place persons in their schools as teachers, that they would otherwise have rejected without hesitancy. In some of the Southern counties many of the schools have been broken up by the rebel raids and invasions. Teachers in some instances were carried off to suffer and die in rbel prisons, and school houses have been used for hospitals. In the city of Harrisbarg four of th public sohool bouses were filled with woundeS and dyisg soldiers for several months during 1861 and 1863, and the boya' schools of the city were entirely broken op. The borough of Cham bersbcrg was destroyed by fire, kindled by rebel hands, and most of the citizens there by rendered unable to pay taxes for the scp port of schools, now needed more than ever befre. There academy and female semi nary were burned, and thus arose the great damacd for more extensive accomodations, and higher grades of instruct ioc iu the pub lic schools ; bot how could those demands be met by citizens whose property had in one sad hour been swept away? To aid the directors in this emergency, the Leg:s la: ore made a special appropriation to the schools of the district, of four thousand dol lars, and released the citizens from the pay ment of all school taxes for the year 1864. County superintecdants iu several cases were drafted, or entered the service by en listment. This oocasioually happened,too, at the time when they were roost needed in their respective counties, as when ex aminations of teachers were to be held, or institutes conducted. As a consoquanca. schools must be supplied with teachers who had no certificates when their schools began, merely because there were no Su perintendents to examine them, and the schools most be opened before an appoint ment could be made. Hence, t oo, lenien cy on the part of the School Department has been absolutely imperative, in order to keep the school in operation at all, iu tnaoy dis tricls of the State. The difficulties" that have met the school officers of the several counties cf the Commonwealth have greaily embarasseJ their operations, ar.d caused thera at limes to almost despair of keeping the system in operation. Aud yet, notwithstanding the di fficulties , and drawbacks, and discouragements, these officers have, as a very general thing; per severiogly, and with Gidelity. to the cause, perlormed their duty, refusing to shored the terra cf school, or employ incompe fentteac hers when competent ones could possibly be found. As the war has been brooght toa successful termination we may reasonably hope for less embarrass merit. Our soldier teachers, who have sur vived the marches, and exposures, and jhe battles of the campaigns, and the fevers. anc diarrheal, and pneumonia, and scurvy, and gangrene, and starvation of the prison ers, have returned to their fields of labor io the school room, and we have promise of better schools. 'Tis true that many came back crippled and maimed, many with bro ken down constitutions, and some also with moral and character gone. Stiil many re turn to ns better men and better teachers than they were before. In the army they have learned most effectually the absolute necessity of ready, prompt, unquestioning obedieuce to order, and the importance of teaching the youth placed under tbeir charge lo love their country acd its institu tions. With those things favorable, may we not hope that oor schools will be more prosperous t With less taxation for purpos es, shall we do! build more good school bouses, and make greater expenditure for furniture and apparatus? Wi'.h many of our best teachers returned to ns, can we not anticipate better gchooli, more thor ough teaching, and a better system of gov ernmeCt? With our minds free from the excitement of the past four years, shaii not the public attention be more steadily direct ed to the matter of ednctaling the youth of oor Commen woalth, and thereby preparing them for the responsibities that are coming upon them ? With school officers unem barrassed by other perplexing official duties, aot pertainicg to school affairs, can we not demand of ihern more time for tbeir school duties, and greater fidelity in the discharge tf those duties ?
