The Union Central Committeo in New
York are making arrangements to givo
Gen. Sickles a fitting reception at Cooper
Institute. This is right. The General
lias done his duty well, and is a victim—
whom even General Grant could not save
—to the desperation of Andrew John
son. At a meeting of the Committee
Monday evening, a large committee was
appointed to execute this purpose, with
Charles S. Spencer at the head. Hav
ing done this the Committee waited on
General Sickles at the Brevoort Houso,
and were introduced, thereupon Mr. Spen
cer stated the object of the visit. lie
concluded liis brief speech as follows :
We ask you to address the people at
the Cooper Institute at such time as you
shall select. As friends of yours, we do
not expect, and shall not ask you to speak
as an exponent of our peculiar political
views; but merely in vindication of your
administration and policy as the Com
mander of the Second Military District
of the South.
Gen sickles replied •
Gentlemen —I need not assure you of
the pleasure I feel in receiving you, and
the gratification I derive "in the assurance
you give me that my course has met with
yonr approbation. I will prepare to take
into consideration the polite offer you
have made mo to meet my fellow-citizens,
it is not possible for me at this moment
to signify MY formal acceptance of this
offer. 1 have taken pains to ascertain
from tlie Government the particular
grounds ef accusation which have promp
ted MP TCMOVAL. Pending the formal an
swer to my communication, it would not
be proper for me to discuss (in public as
semblage) the measures of my adminis
tration. But I presume, at an early day,
it will bo in my power to name a timo
when I can meet my fellow-citizens to
discuss before them questions that most
interest the country at this time. As
soon as it is in my power to do so I will
communicate with you further.
The officers and soldiers of the Excel
sior Brigade are also making arrange
ments to give their old commander a fit«
ting reception. But General Sickles de
sires to avoid all public display at pres
ent. His rank in the regular army is
that of a Colonel in the Forty-Socond
SHAME. —We had thought that our
neighbor of the " Herald" had more re
spect for truth and character than to
give utterance to language like the fol
The Governor of this State. John IT.
Geary , has been over at Washington
City to see Grant about disloyal Mary
land. He had better stay at home and
jsave what little reputation is left to him.
He never held a situation in his life
ihat he did not prove a failure.
A man who did his duty so well and
faithfully as Gen. John W. Geary, du*
ring the severe ordeal through which our
Country passed in the late struggle,
which was brought about by t Democratic
tukrule and intrigue, to be stigmatized
as a "failure" and of "litile reputaion"
is stooping very low. If he had remain
ed in the ranks of the Democratic
party, and subscribed to the bogus Dem
ocratic principles, and consented to have
been their candidate, he would have
been all right, but because he fought
against Rebels and their sympathizers,
anJ was elected Governor by the loyal
voters <pf Pennsylvania, and is honest in
the execui.' 00 °' 'he ' aws au d uses his
influence fo»' the good of our whole
Country, he is a "failure" and of
"little reputation. O, shame, where is
thy blush '!

''SCHNAPPS."; —Since the Court refused
to grant License, several parsons in the
Borough are subject to cramps, colics
and other diseaes, which according to
their ideas are curable only by the use
of Hoffman's Schnapps, Stomach, Bitters
of various kinds, or anything that smells
or tastes of whiskey or alcohol. In fact
if madam rumor be correct, mechanics
who are compelled to use alcohol in their
trades must take the precaution to keep
the same under lock and key for fear
these sick individuals take too much.
We have even been informed that prin
ters sometimes use alcohol mechanically
not, we presume to clean the type but to
wash down the Cobwebs that sometimes
get into the throat.
Ex-Printers are especially hard up for
Schnapps when they are compelled to
employ persons who are laboring under
the effects of fighting whit key or some
other poisonous drug, to visit the Drug
Stores to procure the same, and thus, be
instrumental in getting up a general row
because they were refused the Schapps.
Lovers of Schnapps are not the kind of
Representatives that the peopeple of
Butler County intend to send to the
DISGRACEFUL. —On Saturday evening
that part of our quiet town, on Main
Street between Sykes' Photograph Carr
and Charles Weisemaa's Jewelry and
Shoe Store was very much annoyed by
the bad Conduct and profano language
of a young man who was laboring under
the effects of fighting Whiskey. So
fully was he under its effects that he
considered himself insulted by every
body that could not and would not com
ply with his requests, and was for pitch
ing into everything in the shape of a man
old or young, and was only saved from
getting whipped because he was in
toxicated. It is but justice to say that
when not intoxicated he is one of the
most civil and inoffensive young men in
our Borough. It is a pity that he drinks
and a Bhame for any man to give him
drink. Our advice is, Taste not, Touch
not, Handle not, the unclean thing.
CORRECTION. —In publishing tho pre
ceedings of the County Executive Com
mittee last week, the closing paragraph
was a part of the article entitled, "Meet
ing of Union Republican State Central
Committee," and should have been at
tached thereto, but was not noticed in
time to make the change. No doubt the
County Committee would have been glad
to visit our distinguished candidate, but
the distance and the mode of traveling
were barriers in the way; and although
they did not visit him, they will see to
it, that each of the distriota represen ted
by them does its duty at tho coming
THE Hon. Mr. Boutwell, member of
the Housfc of Representatives from Mas
sachusetts, spoko in Boston, on Friday
evening. As one of the foremost men
in Congress, his lauguage has some sig
nificance. He said :
The times, Mr. Boutwell declared, wero
as critical as in 1861. The question of
Mr. Johnson's impeachment must come
before the House of Representatives.—
There was no escape from it. This coun
try could not remain passive and subinis
sive, while every patriot in the land tho't
there was danger from the man who oc
cupies the chair of Washington and Lin
coln, and who, it was so generally be>
lieved, was endeavoring to restore the
" lost cause" to power. All subordinate
interest should be laid on the altar of the
country. The President's conduct should
be investigated, and if guilty ho should
be punished. The grounds for the accu
sation against him would soon be laid
before the country. If innocent he
would be acquitted ; if guilty he would
be convicted ; and if convicted, tho coun
try would acquiesce, and won!d pass
through the trial safely, and would yet
goon in a prosperous, free, united and
happy career.
DEBT STATEMENT. —Secretary Mci
Culloch has issued a corrected state
ment, which shows that the debt, less
cash in the Treasury, has decreased in
the last'month 818,523,000 96, instead
of less than six millions as shown in the
erronons statement. The corrected state
ment also shows that the debt has been
reduced since the Ist of September, 1865,
$264,806,206 38. If this rate of reduc
tion could be kept up, the entire debt
would be paid off by July 1,1867.
THE year seems to be favorable to
Copperheads. To the horde already in
the field, Judge Woodward is now added
he having been nominated by theShars
wood Democracy in the Luzerne district.
His nominatien is the latost illustration
of the fitness of things. During the res
bellion he was on the side of Jeff. Davis.
As Judge he declared the draft uncon
stitutional, and did his best to assist the
rebels. He is, therefore, the most fit
man in the world to be the candidate of
the Johnson«Sharswood Democracy.
"Now is the moment for Mr. John
son to seize fortune at the flood. The
reaction is earning. Let him resign and
lead it." So said the Herald lately.
This allusion to the flood is mysterious.
Does it mean that Mr. JOHNSON'S best
chance of fortune is to drown himself,
and to do it in a hurry* while he has a
chance!' The fortnight's history, em
bracing the IleraM,* railing at Mr. JOHN
SON. its flattering of Mr. JOHNSON and
it* finishing touch and climax, in advis
ing him resign, is equal to the per
formance of any "harlotry player," and
should be illu«»,»ted in some funny paper. I
IN a speech in Boston a few days since,
Hon. R. 11. Dana referred to the revolu
tionary designs of the President, and the
meditated coup d'etat. He did not be*
lieve, however, he could execute it while
Grant and others wero in the Cabinet.—
Mr. Dana said :
When Mr. Johnßon got rid of these
men, and began to gather a military force
a* out him, he could do it without obser
vation ; and force would be met by force.
The States furnished the men to protect
Washington during the war. The mili
tia of Massachusetts found their way to
Washington at once; they knew the mad ;
and if they were needed, they could find
their way there again. [.Applause.]
Tin New York Timet Bays, in regard to
the Amnesty Proclamation, tbat "the as
sertion by the President of his right to issue
such a proclamation at nil is the point which
most concerns the country." We suspect
the Times has hit the vital point and opened
up the question most threatening to the na
tion. Of course, the motive enters into the
discussion. No one can question what that
is—the vitalization, BO far as it can be done,
of tho "dead cause." The spirit at the bot
tom of the proceedings is the same as that
which animated Johnson in reinforcing
Beauregard at Bull Bun. And it is thus
hat the President is to be judged.
THE Democratic party this year pre
sents an anomalous appearance. So far
as its leaders exhibit it in Allegheny
county it has no important principles of
jts own to maintain and no general bene
fit to the community even to promise.—
Having nothing to defend' its strategy is
wholly aggressive, and, being without tho
slightest chance of success, is as reckless
as it IB hopeless. The party may be Baid
to have a tripod form. On its three legs
it stands, walks and staggers ; or, as the
late lamented Artemus might have ex
pressed it : " The pints of argument,
first and foremost and forever, the nigger;
secondly, the licker; third and lastly, the

Sabbath School Convention.
MR. EDITOR :—On tho 10th inst., ac
cording to previous arrangements, a Sab
bath School Convention of the following
M. E. Sabbath Schools was held in the
beautiful grove East of tho village of
North Washington, viz : West Sunbury,
Farmington, Maple Furnace, and North
Washington Schools. At an early hour
the different roads leading to the place
appointed for the Convention w ere throng
ed with wagons and carriages, loaded to
their utmost capacity ; while great num
bers were seen on horse back. Delega
tions of the North Washington School
were sent out un the different roads to
escort the visiting schools to the place of
meeting, and it was truly a grand sight
to see the different schools as they ar
rived. From the great number in attends
ance, one would havo supposed that the
whole surrounding country had turned
out en masse.
At 12 o'clock, M., *ll had arrived in
the Grove. Scats had been provided to
accommodate 1000 persons which were
closely packed, while a great number
were compelled to stand or sit upon the
Tho grounds were beautifully decora,
ted with Evergreens and wreaths. A
large stand was erected for the officers
and speakers, upon the right and left of
which two platforms wcje erected for the
music. Two large and excellent Martial:
Bands were present in full uniform, viz:
the West Sunbury and Clintonvillc, the
former upon the right and the latter on
the left of the Speaker's stand. Ever
rything being in perfect order the Con*
vedtion was organized by electing Joseph
Hamilton of Farmington School, Presi*
dent, and C. E. Anderson of Butler, Sec
retary. Tho exercises were opened with
prayer by the Rev. D. W. Wampler ; af
ter which tho Convention was favored
with a sweet Sabbath School song appro*
priate to the occasion by tho North
Washington S. S. Quire. Rev. A. II-
Domer then addressed the Convention,
Subject: ''To tho Parents." This was
followed by an address to the children by
Rev. J. Perry. Music by tho Bands.
During the time of the speaking a
committee of ladies and gentlemen had
been busily engaged in arranging the
table. Tho Convention now formed in
procession, preceded by the Martial
Bands, playijg, and marcliod in com
plete order and took position on the four
sides of a large square, four «ieop, and
the crowd being so much largor than was
anticipated the North Washington School
took position on the West side of the
square outside of the regular line. Tho
Divino blessing was then asked by the
Rev. E. Woodruff, of the Babtist Church.
The Committees who had been appointed
for the purpose, then served the large
gathering with the good things that had
been provided for the occasion. It was
truly astonishing and none the less grat
ifying to behold the vast amount and
graat variety of Sweet cakes, Light cakea,
Pies, and sweet meets that had been pro
vided for this occasion, and vast as it was
1 am not aware that many baskets full of
fragments wero gathered up after the
multitude had been fully satisfied.
Tho repast being over t he Convention
matched back to their respective places
in tho same order in which they had ap
proached tho table; and while the audi
ence were being seated tho martial bands
favored the audience Vith some excellent
music. Rev. Thos. Grahnm mad# a few
remarks to tho audience,on the "Sabbath
School Cause." Mr. Graham would have
extended his remarks to a much greater
length but time would not permit. Mu
sic by the Sunbury Band.
Exercises closed with prayer and ben*
cdiction. We would not do justice to the
occasion to close this article withou'
noticing some of the banners and mottoes.
There were several, of which the
following, viz : "West Sunbury Sabbath
School ;" "Always at work;" "Search
the Scriptures;" "Those that seek Mo
early shall find me "0, how I love
Thy law;" On which were the portraits
of Asbury and Hfdding. 2d. "M. E.
Sabbath School;" "Tho world is my Par
ish,' Portrait of Wesley. "Never say
fail, for God is with us." 3d. "Farm
ington M. E. Sabbath School," decora*
ted with Eagle, Stars and Stripes. Mot
to : "Feed my Sheep." 4th. North
Washington M. E. S. S., "Youth is the
time to serve the Lord." sth. "North
Hope, O. K.," - 'E Pluribus Unum;" "In
God we trust."
These banners were all tastefully and
richly decorated. This to say the very
least, was one of the grandest, largest and
best conducted Sabbath School exhibibi
tions we ever had the pleasure of wit
nessing. By actual count we are told,
tk&t there were 590 officers, teachers and
scholars in procession ; and that there
was near 1500 persons in the convention.
This together with the expense incurred
in making the necessary arrangements
and provid ing the eatables and confec
tionaries is surely indicative of the in
terest taken in the Sabbath School cause.
The very best of order was observed
throughout the entire proceedings ; all
nppear«d well satisfied and even delight
ed. May the interest which has been
awakened in this good cause increase,
until every one, young and old Bhall be
fully aroused to duty and action.
C. E. ANDERSON, Sec'y.
Sabbath School Convention
In response to an invitation extended
by a committee, representing the U. P.
S. S. of Varnum, and the Lutherean
S. S. of North Washington. The Morn
ing of the 10th, saw the usually quiet
village of North Washington overflowing
with people, of all ages, and both sexes
enroutt to the appointed place of meeting
in Mifflin's Grove,where preparations had
been made for their reception. On as
sembling in the grove, the convention
was organized by calling J. W. Christy
Esq. of the West Sunbury U. P. S. S.
to the chair, supported by a Vice I'resi»
dent, form each of the other schools rep
resented, and appointing Chambers Scott
and Samuel Glenn, Scc'ys.
Tho meeting was opened with prayer
by the Rev. E. 11. Stevenson, returned
Missionary from India. The convention
was addressed by the Revs. Messrs.
Coulter, Brcdin, Shade, Marshall, Ste
venson and Jamison. Each school en
tered tho grove, led by persons bearing
beautiful banners, accompanied by bands
discoursing delightful music. The mot
toes of some of the banners were so ap
propriate to the occasion, that we cannot
forbear mentioning them. Tho German
Reformed banner of Fairview was ren
dered noticeable, by its contrast with
the others; the ground of the banner
being dark, lighted up with the short
sentence in bright letters "God is love."
The banuer of the U. I*. S. S. of Sun
bury was very beautiful, having various
oppropriate inscriptions, among which
were "Suffer littl* children to eomo unto
mo &e.," and "Lo children aro God's
heritago." The Annisville O. S. P. S.
S. had a tasty banner with this motto;
"They that seek me early shall find me."
The Concord O. S P. 8. 8., and the
North Washington Lutheran S. S. each
had a very neat banner with the motto;
"We are the hope of the church."
There was a very pretty banner borne by
the Mount Varnum S. S. with this mot
to, "In the name of our God, we will set
up our banner." With regard to the
Fairviow U. P. Banner, we can say noth.
ing as we have lost our notes.
The convention passed off pleasantly ;
this vast concourse of people, numbering
from 2,500 to 3,000, were sumptuously
feasted by the ladies connected with the
different schools. TIIO interest, mani
fested by such conventions as this, is an
evidence of tho waking up of the people
to the importance of the Sabbath School
cause. When we soe people leaving
their daily avocation and flocking by
the thousand, to the place of meeting
and spending time, and money, in bring
ing thither and entertaining, Sabbath
School children, we may cherish bright
hopes for the future.
J. W. CHRISTY, Pres.
C. SCOTT, ) O ,
For tbe Cftisen.
MR. EDITOR : —I have always been a
friend of education, and take delight in
seeing tbe cause advanced. And I have
frequently spoken a word in its favor,
and at all times endeavor to throw my
influence in such a direction as I think
will assist in rolling on the ball that has
been so long in motion. I have frequent
ly stepped into the common school house
on the road side, as I passed along on my
journey, to see and hear if perchance I
might learn something that I might put
to account. Once, as I was traveling in
an adjoining county, I stepped in a school
house by the wayside, for I was well ac
quainted with Mr. M., the teacher, and
was invited by him to remain and hoar
some of his classes recite. I complied
with his request, and saw and heard what>
perhaps, I will never forget. I distinct
ly recollect a little incident which occur,
red during my stay, and which I propose
here to relate. When the roll was call
ed, each scholar might respond by giving
a motto or sentiment, and some of these
were very good, but thero was one that
rather " took me." It was, " God speed
the man that steals, swears and lies." I
was astonished to think that any one
should be so lost to morality as to utter
such a sentiment in the school-room. I
cast my eye at the teacher to see what
effect it had upon him ; but instead of
frowning his disapproval, he sat with his
eyes cast downward while a faint smil*
playing upon his countenance. Did he
approve of such wicked language, know
ing that " ho that biddeth him God speed
is partaker of his evil deeds." Solemn
thought.' teacher and scholar traveling
j together in that road which leads to ever
lasting ruin.
It is inde ed a serious thought to the
Christian to seo so many who regard
neither the laws of God nor man. "Swear
not at all." "Thou shalt not steal."—
And oh ! what an awfu 1 doom is pronoun*
ced upon all liars. "Because of swear
ing the land mourneth."
The God of love, who reigns above,
A law to us hath given ;
And he who steals, and swears and lie»,
Shall never enter heaven.
And oh ! what a train of thoughts passed
through my mind while he was uttering
such an infamous sentiment.
But let ns return to the sublet. "God
speed the man thatjateals, swears and lies,''
and here he made a long pause, as if his
conscience was checking him and his
tongue refused to utter such revolting
language; but he at last proceeds some
what as follows : " God speed the man
that steals, swears and lies, —that steal 8
away from vicious, vain and idle compa
ny ; that swears the truth at all times, and
lies in his own bed at home, while otTi
ers spend their nights in revelry and de
baochery. I leave your readers to judge
how I got over my surprise. M.
