THURSDAY, MARCH 21, 1867.
A Dht Eating Consul. It is well known that some months ago (it is said at tho dictation of President Johnson) Wm. II. Seward, Secretary of State, sent to the various consuls and ministers of the United States resident in Europe, on the strength of a letter received from one "Wm. II. M'Cracken, who at tbe time was traveling in Europe, an inquisitor? epistle inquiring if they had indulged in any remarks derogatory of the President or that condemned his "policy." Although many humiliating if not craven replies were received from our representatives abroad in answer to the inquisition of the President, that from Charles II. Upton, consul at Geneva, Switzerland, is fairly and by great odds entitled to bear the palm. Cousi'l Upton first "passes over" the assertion that he is a "common drunkard." He seems to be willing that he should be considered a victim to his cups; he can bear up under that charge, and for sake ot his dignity treats it with ihe contempt ot silence, but that he should have abused the President, or uttered a word not in praise of him, is too much for the consul at Geneva, and he accordingly clears his skirts of that grae assertion in these words: "Born and educated at the North, and having lived thirty years at the douth, I hare learned much of tbe character and faults of both sections. Our late civil war was, in my judgment, the result of those mutual provocations. I believed that the earliest possible reconciliation, after the war was over, whs the dictate of wisdom and human ity. When Mr. Ward Beecher published his Cleveland letter I rejoiced ; when the pres sure of party compelled him to retract I was grieved. "At a public dinner given in this city on the last 4th of July, to which I was invited, and which was gotten up by some gentlemen belonging to the Philadelphia League, I was called upon to respond to a toast for the President. In roy remarks, this part of which was published, I begged those who heard me to remember the great services which tbe President had rendered to the country, and when they returned home to treat him with kindness and forbearance. Buch have been my sentences aud utterances; but if it happened that I differed politically with the Chief Magistrate, whose commission I held, I should have too much respect for cry position either to abuse him or to allow others to do so in my presence." Poor Upton ! he must have a weakness for consulships, aa ho certainly has for the softer sex, and they also for him, for his letter is accompanied by another signed by seven of them testifying to his temperate habits, his kindness to his country men,- (and, of course, infinitely kinder to his country- tcomen,) and that he never apoke other than respectfully of the President for which tho President ought to be obliged, especially if his St. Louis speech ever reached Geneva. Tlie Fenians. The Fenians are more ubiquitous than Ranquo's ghost. Dispatches from Brit ish sources say that all disturbances in Ireland have ceased, and that the entire people are tranquil, but ominously add that the authorities have good reason to fear another rising, and have taken the nerensarv measures to nrevent it. That j - r - - - is, although the Fenian outbreak is over, the British government still sends ships and troops to the disaffected districts. On this side the Atlantic, the fear of an other invasion on the Canadian border by tbe Fenians seems scarcely less in magni tude thau the fright caused by the nearly successful invasion of last year. Ogdcns bure, N. Y., appears to be the place of assembling for tbe Fenians. British troops are moving toward rarious points on the Canadian frontier, in anticipation of an attack by the Fenians. The eccentric John Randolph, after having been appointed miuister to Russia, was aked, while stopping in Liverpool, on his way to tbe Russian capital, what, in his judymeut, was the remedy for the dissatisfaction of the Irifh people with the Britibh government. To the question, he promptly and aptly replied "Unmuz lc the ox that treadeth out the corn." The words uttered by Randolph are no less true and applicable to-day than when they first fell from his lips, and now, as then, constitute the magic wand that is ,able to make the breezes of the sea bear ' tranquility to the people of Ireland. That unfortunate nation suffers wrong at the .hands of Great Britain, and we trust she may continue to make the earth echo with her cries until she receives tbac jus tice to which all mankind have an equal and indefeasible claim. ,JIf every Presidential message, from the first message of Lincolu down the lst mes sage of Johnson, veto messages and all, were published in regular succession, no fair rea aoner could fix the linf of departure between the first message and the laat." Ebensburg 'Freeman. So the editor of the Freeman, by his own chopping of logic, acted a dunce's or a hypocrite's part in opposing the war nd the administration of President ow in upholding iresMcni John-un. Which 1 Supplementary Reconstruction inn. A" bill "supplementary to the act of 2d March, for the more efficient govern ment of the rebel States, and to facilitate restoration, was passed by the House on the 11th indtant, by a vote of 117 to 27. The bill directs the commanding General in each district provided for by that act to cause to bo made, before the first of September next, a registration in each county or pariah of the male citizens of the United States over twenty-one years of age, resident in such couufy or parish, which registration shall include all those persona who are qualified to vote for dele gates by the act of 2d March, and who shall have taken and subscribed an oath of fidelity to the Union and the govern ment of the United States and to the Constitution and the laws made in pursu ance thereof. When such registration shall have been completed, and copies thereof returned to the commanding Gen eral, tbe General commanding shall with in thirty days thereafter cause an election to be held for delegates' to frame State constitutions, to re-establish loyal civil government, and to pass all needful ordi nances for putting such constitutions and government into operation. The constitu tions to be adopted by a majority of the registered voters, and on approval of Con gress, Senators and Representatives to be admitted from Buch States. On Saturday, the bill was taken up by the Senate and was passed by the deci sive vote of 38 to 2. It was not materi ally altered from the shape in which it passed the House, the principal changes being that unless a majority of the regis tered voters vote for a convention, no convention shall be held, and that the constitution shall be adopted when voted for by a majority of not less thau one-half of the registered voters. The bill now goes to a committee of conference. Torts and Retorts. The Freeman lasi week published the bill for the reconstruction of the Southern States, and gave as a reason for not pub lishing it in the same issue in which it was severely criticised that "it was not a law at the time." Having passed both Houses of Congress and been put into the the hands of the President,' it was in the Freeman's judgment a fit object for adverse criticism and severe denunciation, but not for perusal by its readers. How superlatively fair it is to forestall judg ment by bitter denunciation J In the issue next subsequent to the one in which it was denounced, although the bill had in the meantime become the law of the land, it was still kept from tho Freeman's readers, and when given in last week's issue, it ii accompanied by still further denunciations tending to excite prejudice against its provisions. The Freeman chooses to denounce rather than argue, probably because the latter was the more congenial course both to itself and to its readers. The Freeman makes thrusts at The Alleyhanian on the score of fairness, but fails to distinguish between The Alleyha nian under the present management and that of its former editor. If the Freeman 6peaks only of the present volume, then it is true that we have never published a veto message of the President, but neither has the Freeman. So, to convict us, is to convict itself. But every message (of the President) has not been abused with out stint, and the President has nor been called a traitor (to his country) in these columns. Kew Hampshire. New Hampshire has elected General Harriman, :he Republican candidate for Governor, by about three thousand major ity, over Sinclair, the Democratic nominee. In the Republican nominating convention, the contest between Harriman and his opponeut was close, and although decided in favor of Harriman. it left wounds that threatened to jeopardize our success. But the Granite State has elected a Republican Governor, an entire Republican delegation to Congress, and a Legislature everwbelm ingly Republican. Next conies Connecti cut, and we do not doubt that the decision of New Hampshire is the key note to that of Connecticut. It is always gratifying to us to see the manner in which faithful Republican legislators are regarded by their constitu ents, as well as by the Republican press outside of their districts. The following, from the Meadcille Daily Republican, is iu approval of one of the ablest men in the State Senate : "General Harry White stands deservedly in the trout rank of our legislators, is a bold and honest advocate of just measures, and a fearless, uncompromising enemy of all corrupt legislation. Fear of our leading public men have earned a reputation so creditable and enviable.

The Freeman says that the ancient boro. of Huntingdon is "looming up." Are we to understand from this that the ancient boro. of Huntingdon has gone extensively into the weaving business? James C. Clark, of Huntingdon, Dep uty Collector, is acting Collector of this (the 17th) district, and will continue to discharge the duties of tbe office until an appointment shall have been made and confirmed. jfta? "A bushel of slate weighs more than a bushel of coal." Freeman. Indeed ! But suppose we pay a slate price for the slate, ind a coal price for the coal what then? Your understanding appears to be bound up in a bushel measure. ZQ? Tbe Internal Revenue Assessors are now engaged in the assessment of income taxes. By a late act of Congress, the time for assessments is changed from May to March, and the uniform rate of five per cent, is fixed on all incomes above $1,000. J6S The Freeman advises us to buy origi nal poetry by the pound, instead of by the yard. If we accepted the proposed idea, we would hate to buy MacShane's effusions at the ruling price, for his poetry, unlike his Blacklick coal, is uncommonly heavy. During the existence of the Thirty ninth Congress, the President vetoed ten bills and pocketed one. Six were passed over the veto, four, vetoes were sustained, and four bills became laws without the Pres ident's signature. JEtS" ltThe Alleghanian has not published a single message of the President of the United States since the radicals bolted the Republican party." Freeman. The Republican party without the Radi cals is like a skull with the brains out. ' ESF" The rains of week before last have caused some of the most destructive floods known in the history of the country. The Ohio, the Tennessee, and the Mississippi has each overflowed its banks and carried terror and destruction among the people. These disasters will make the proposed gift by Con gress of a million of dollars for the relief of the suffering people of the South still more acceptable. "Had six additional Democratic votes been cast in favor of this proposed remedy, (the tariff.) it would have been a success." The Alleghanian. "Yes ! or six additional radical votes. But both parties voted against it, and so it was killed." Freeman. Tbe Republicans who voted against the tariff bill were, almost without exception, from agricultural States. But Democrats from manufacturing districts, as our own State and New York, either voted against the bill or not at all. republicans from manu facturing States did their best. Had Demo crats from manufacturing States seconded thni. ihe bill witd htre bn a suetu Tbe Black. Man at the Polls. The solution of. the national problem was foreshown in miniaturo in the Dis trict of Columbia at the late municipal election. Georgetown was redeemed by radical voters. It was shown that the colored man knows better than to vote with the pro-slavery party, and that white men and colored men can vote together without a .".war of races." . There was never a more peaceful election. The same thi d; can be repeated on a grand scale. As to the apprehension of a "war ot ra ces" in such an event, the Georgetown experiment furnishes a striking illustra tion of the facility with which even prej udiced whites become ashamed of their prejudice and lose all their aversion to seeing the negro at the ballot box. A correspondent who visited the polls oa the occasion named say : "A venerable colored citizen pave us a ticket of the kind he voted. It had at the top a picture of the black man's true friend. Father Abraham. Passing on to one poll, we found an orderly crowd, about one-fourth blacks. Policemen were sta tioned at the window where the tickets were banded in, but this display of uni forms and clubs appeared to bo entirely unnecessary, unless it was to curb the re bellious spirits of the secesb, who indica ted their opposition by wry faces and contemptuous meio. ' J "One of them broke out in this strain : 'These d n niggers only had to present themselves to the board of registry and certify that they were residents of George town, and they were enrolled, but we white folks had to answer a lot of ques tions, such as, did you aid or assist the rebellion ? and we had to swear we were loyol j "Here is the rub. These questions were not asked the freedmen, beeause they are all loyal. At another poll, in an adjoining ward the colored voters num bered four-fifths. They were ranged in a long line and voted in turn. Two negro voters made a tally of each voter, and two others stood ready to vouch for any voter of whom there might be any doubt in identity or name. A more orderly election I never saw, and this was also the testi mony of the gentleman with me, who is an old pro-slavery Democrat. lie came away saying: 'These men are intelligent enough to vote, respectable enough ; more decently behaved men 1 never saw; they are loyal, and what is tho reason they should not vote? There is no reason In fact, he grew decidedly enthusiastio :n favor of universal suffrage, and boldly announced that henceforth he was on the side of justice and right, and should array himself against the party of prejudice and caste. Every negro had a smile on his face, but no taunts or boasting was heard." The 91. E. Conference on tbe State or tbe Country. During the reeent (session of the Pitts burg MethodUt Episcopal Conference, at Massillon, the Committee on the State of tbe Country presented tho following report, which was adopted : "The state of the country is at the pres ent time peculiar and anomalous. The war for the preservation of the Govern ment and the Union has closed, but the conflict has not terminated: it has only been transferred from the field to the forum; from the camp to the council. Ideas, not armies, are the forces which now confront each other, and the realissue is whether treason shall recover what it lost in the field or whether the sublime truths expressed in the Declaration of Independence shall have a distinct and emphatic recognition and application in the reconstruction of the Government and its future administration. Your commit tee therefore offer for your adoption the following resolutions : "Resolved, 1st. That we heartily and emphatically indorse the action of the Thirty-ninth Congress on the question of reconstruction, and approve the measures adopted for the final settlement of that question. "Revived, 2d. That we believe Christi anity to be the basis and bulwark ot civil liberty, and hail with joy as among the auspicious signs of the times the Con gressional temperance and prayer meetings. "Resolved 3d. That as 'righteousness exalteth a nation but sin is a reproach to any people we will not cease to pray for our rulers, and will give our influence and suffrages to elevate to offices of profit and trust men of unbonding moral integ rity ." m 9 ' Words of Truth. Maj. Gen. Thomas, commanding the Department ot Tennessee, in a letter to the Mayor ot Borne, Ga., who had asked the release of certain citixens of that place, arrested by General Till ion for displaying tbo rebel flag, took occasion to express sentiment! which will meet response in every loyal bosom. Replying to the pretence that no disrespect to the govern ment was intended by those who flaunted the rebel emblem, he says : "The late civil war was a rebellion, and history will so record it. Those engaged in it are and will be pronounced rebels; rebellion implies treason, and treason is a crime, and a heinous one too, and deser ving of punishment ; and that traitors have not been punished is owing to the magnanimity of the conquerors. With too many people of tbe South, the late civil war is called a revolution, rebels are called 'Confederates loyalists to the whole country are called d d Yankees and traitors, and over the whole great crime, with its accursed record of slaughtered heroes, patriots murdered because ot their true-hearted love of country, widowed wives, and orphaned children, and pris oners of war slain amid such horrors as find co parallel in the history of the world, they are trying to throw the "clot of respectability and' thrusting with eon. tumely and derision from their society the men and women who would not join hands with them in the work of ruining their country.
