BEDLAM IN CONVENTION.
In a graphic account of the clos
ing scenes of the Mulatto Conven
tion, recently held in Philadelphia,
the exhibition was one that can not
but arrest the serious attention of
every patriotic citizen. He will
see, in the leading characters of
that Convention, the class of crazy
beings to whom the tax-payers and
peaceable and order-loving citizens
are asked to intrust the Govern
ment. Are they the proper per
sons to take charge of the Govern
ment, and restore the States to
harmony? Are they the persons
to lighten the burthen of taxes
under which we are suffering, and
inaugurate a system of retrench
ment and reform in expenditures?
Are such crazy folks fit to be in
trusted with public position of any
kind? These are serious questions,
and will have to be seriously an
swered, if the Republic is to con
tinue and prosper.
Stuck on a Sand-bar.
An Eastern paper tells us that a
distinguished negro, who attended
the Radical Convention at Phila
delphia, drank so much of the
Schulykill's muddy waters as to
form a sand-bar in his alimentary
canal. That, accounts for the
misfortunes that attend the Radical
leaders ot the Convention. They
attempted to put their crazy vessel
through that canal, but on account
of a powerful current at the time,
and unskilled piloting, they ran
her on the sand-oar spoken of and
stuck her fast; and there. 6be is
yet' Ugh! 'What a fix! i

WILSON ENDORSES EVERY
ACTION OF CONGRESS.
John T. Wilson made the follow
ing declaration in the' "piece" he
spoke at Portsmouth, last Satur
day a week ago 1 "1 RATIFY THE
ACTIONS OF CONGRESS FROM
BEGINNING TO END."
Let us briefly recount some of the
acts of this Rump Congress, which
John T. "Wilson, Radical candidate
for Congress in this District en
dorses. , .
The Radicals in Congress voted
a subsidy of $30,000,000 to Na
tional Banks; about $20,000,000 to
the Nigger Bureau; $20,000,000 for
bounties to Negro Soldiers; 46,000,
000 acres of public lauds to negro
women and children, deserted by
their husbands and fathers, worth
at least $50,000,000; $100,000,000
into the pockets of monopolists and
dealers in cotton, etc; $200,000,000
of a tariff voted for the benefit of
eastern manufacturers and capital
ists; $50,000,000 for miscellaneous
stealing jobs; voted NO bounty to
white soldiers that they will ever
get; and finally voted $4,000 each
into their own pockets! Here is
FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTY
THREE MILLIONS OF DOL
LARS, voted for corrupt purposes,
out of the people's pockets, by
those noble, virtuous, and incor
ruptible philanthropists in one
year. This is about $18 voted out
of the pockets of every man, wo
man and child in the United States.
Congress, also voted to force Negro
Suffrage upon the people of the
District of Columbia. It passed the
Freedmen's Bureau Bill and the
Civil Rights Bill. It violated the
Constitution by keeping eleven
States out of the Union, and pre
vented a harmonious re-union of
the States and the inauguration of
peace throughout the land. It
thwarted President Johnson in his
patriotic plans to bring about the
pacfication of the whole country.
A most noble Congress.
If you vote for John T. Wilson,
you vote W sustain the present
Congress in all its revolutionary
and disunion schemes, for he says
he endorses "all its fictions from
beginning to end."
THE SOUTHERN LOYALIST"S
CONVENTION AT PHILADELPHIA.
The Convention was Intended as an off
get to the Union Convention held at Phila
delphia, somo time since.
It was meant, thereby, to neutralize the
demoralizing effect upon the country of
the utterances of General John A. Dix,
II. J. Raymond and Senator Doolittle, on
the part of the Xorth, and the complete
submission to the Constitution and laws,
expressed on the part of the South, by
Governor Orr, and others, of the South.
So Frederick Douglass, the colored orator,
und Miss Anna S. Dickinson, the interest
ing female amalgamationist were lutroi

These two sat lovingly, side by side, in
a happy wedlock of principles, and Bev.

holy sanction to the blissful Union, Miss
Anna wax called upon to speak. She put
her hand on her robustuous bosom, as she
spoke of being too full for utterance, and
retired to give place to the sable Douglass,
who, thereupon, proceeded to develop

PRESIDENT JOHNSON'S PROGRESS.
As Mr. Johnson moves westerly, his
speeches increase in vigor and determina
tion. Alone or two places llie Mongrels
have, in a low ami vulgar spirit, tnrown
out taunts and insults, and the effect has
been to rouw the sleeping lion in Andy's
nature., He tells them that he shall not
stand upon dignity when attacked, but give
back all they can send. At Cleveland, he
denounced the Mongrels as ' blood suckers
and cormorants," who stayed home from
the war and speculated while brave men
fought. He also informed theat that his
purpose was fixed, and that "wither the
powers of hell nor old Tiad. Stevens and
and all his gang," could turn him from it.
Tbis Is rougii, plain language, iuth as ap
peals to the strongest feelings of the peo
ple, for there is nothing so popular with the
masses as right dow n determined "pluck,"
It is very evident that if the Mongrels io.,'t
want to hear the truth, they better let in ly

as it was a real triumph. It is the
last State they will succeed in,

The Disgraceful Mob at Indianapolis

There are few Americans, we
trust, that can read the telegraphic
Despatches from Indianapolis, with
out tie deepest shame and mortifi

United States Kas prevented from

brutal and drunken mob, . who

There is nothing the leading Ja
cobins of Indianapolis so much
dread as free speech, without it is
the action of unbiased grand juries
and criminal courts, who can in
quire into their past misdeeds.
This riotous display was the off
spring of the spirit of the Radical
managers, and was undoubtedly
secretly arranged by them.' They
may now affect to deplore it, but it
was their work, and for it they and
their party will be held accounta
ble. We much mistake the temper
and feeling of the people of Indi
ana if this foul outrage this shame

respect for the laws of hospitality
and of regard for the Government
of the United States this insult to
the person of its Chief Magistrate
is not rebuked in thunder tones
at the coming election.
No party can stand the odium of
such a performance as has lately
transpired at Indianapolis.
Jim Ashley, candidate for Con
gress in the Toledo District, comes
out boldly. He states in a .recent
speech: "I know that the loyal
people of Ohio are with me in de
manding absolute equality for all
loyal citizens before the law., and if
any man in this District differs
with me here, ' I cannot represent
him." i$y this ne means that a
nigger is as good, in all respects,
as a white man. Nothing more or

while Congress voted to give the
white soldiers fifty and oe .hund

according to their terms
of service or the sums heretofore
received, it voted to give the black
soldiers three hundred dollars? If
yea, it is true, that while this addi
tional bounty is being paid to the
negroes, payment is refused to the
whites upon the plea that there ore
no appropriations for the purpose?
Look This Then on
This Radical Congress voted the
black soldier $200 for extra buunty,
and appropriated the money to pay
It also voted the white soldier
$50 in Home cases, in others $100
extra bounty, but made no ap
propriation to pay it.
The black soldiers are drawing
their fcJOO extra bounty. The
white soldiers must wait until Con
gress can bo induced to make an
appropriation for them.
When the black was concerned,
the Radical Congress made no mis
take. It was only when the white
needed its services that it was care
less, indifferent, or hadn't time.

Prevent the President from Speaking--General Grant Rebukes
INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 10, 1866.
Each of the party were in
troduced to the crowd from the
balcony on Washington street, and
were received with prolonged
cheers. When General Meredith
commensnd the welcome address
nf the President,it was evident there
was an organized gang of rowdies,
led by prominent Republicans,
determined to prevent the rresi
dent from speaking. When he
commenced returning thanks, cries
of all descriptions were uttered by
the Republican rowdies, who said
he should not be beard.
The President spoke a short
time notwithstanding the confu
sion, and then retired. General
Grant came out and said: "For the
credit of your city, hear U3 all
speak." But the response came
"We won't hear any of you."
After the party retired there was
an altecation, during which several
pistol shots were fired, and several
persons were wounded. The dis
turbance of the meeting -was dis
graceful to the city, and is so felt
by all good citizens.
A Flag Insult.
ST. LOUIS, Sept. 10, 1866.
The' only unpleasant incident
that occurred during the President's
reception here was this: In the
midst of the flags and banners that
draped the locality around the
Lindell Hotel was a 6tnp of white
cloth inscribed with the words
"Andrew the Apostate." This was
scarcely noticed until after the
procession had passed,' when the
owner of the adjoining house went
to tho place, caught the owner of
the offensive device by the throat
and forced him to take it down on
The Radicals made no insulting
demonstration against the Presi
dent; every crowd that assembled
on the streets nnd in the hotels
was so overwhelmingly in favor of
the President that they did not
dare to do so.
The Radicals are organizing and
arming a secret military force in
the State called the Advance
Guard. It is to take the place of
the lawless militia, which the Gov
ernor was forced to disband, and
its object is to carry the election

ANDREW JOHNSON, BY THE
The Butternut editor of the Re
cord says of Andrew Johnson: "We
support him by the job." He says
"We applaud a good' thing when
we see it," and denounce a bad
thing, &c. "Upon this principle,
we applaud the Philadelphia Con
vention." I. e., tho Philadelphia
Convention was a good thing. He
says: "Men are nothing principles
"are all in all." Now, we submit
whether men are not exponents of
principles? Whether, for instance,
the nominee and the leader of a
party are not exponents of tho
principles enunciated by that par
ty? Was not Vallandigham an ex
ponent of the anti-war party in
1863? Is not Andrew Johnson the
exponent of the new party which
he claims to lead? He pretends to
stand by a certain principle. The
Philadelphia Convention was call
ed, and acted upon that principle,
to wit "Immediate admission into
Congress- of the representatives
from the Southern States." Now,
what manner of man is he who
talks about endorsing a great prin
ciple by the "job?" We, of the
Union party, say that Andrew
Johnson's "policy" is wrong. If it
is wrong, we are right-if right,we
are wrong. We have some sym
pathy with a man who honestly en
tertains opinions contrary to ours,
and in harmony with Johnson; but
the men who can come out and say
we are in favor of the action of the
Philadelphia Convention; but, then,
we we, that is, Johnson is an
unsafe man. We can rely on him
to-day, but can't rely on him to
morrow. We can depend on him
in some things, but not in others.
We would like to succeed in elect
ing the butternut ticket, and: we
endorse Andy when the "job" aids
us. When Ave gnd men who don't
liiie mm, and denounce him that
is. when he adds nothing to our
strength, then we don't endorse the
"job." We, the leaders of the but
ternut party in Vinton county,
would like, if possible, to blow hot
and cold with the same mouth.-
We would like to make a hero of
the President then, we would like
to oppose him we want to float
we cry, "Good Lord I good d 1!"
for we know not into whose hands
we may fall. "My policy" is well
it's doubtful 1 We are in iavor
of something new most anything!
We would like to elect our butter
nut ticket, and we don't care much
how we do it! We are not exactly
in favor of Johnson we're in fa-
vor ol the success, if there is any
success to him. If he fails, we
want to be away "from him. We
oppose the Union party because
they oppose us, and whipped our
friends of the Confederate army.
We don't know exactly what we
are in favor of! .
MEETING AND GREAT
Our Court House wa3 filled to

body turns out to hear Bundy;

Raising Their Pay.
The Democratic papers hate a good deal
to say about Congress raising tln.Tr pay.
This same thing was done at the session
of 1855 fl. Before that time each member
received eight dollars per day. At that
session, Congress raised, tho pay to $3000
per year, and that provision applied to
that same Congress, and O. F. Moore voted
to thus raise his own pay. We examined
this matter in the summer of 1850, in the
columns of the Standard, nnd 51 r. Moore
admitted that lie had done so. to a meeting
of Knowuothingg who assembled in West
