OB Thursday evening, Oct. 24th inst., the inhabitants of Butler and vicinity were permitted to enj oy a rich feast in listening to the soul stirring strains of sweet vocsl music. The occasion is one that will long be remembered by all who were present. In accordance with pre vious arrangements, Rev. R. B. Robert* son of Freeport, and twenty»five ladies and gentlemen of his Binging class vis ited our quiet town for the purpose of giving a musical Concert for the benefit of t}ie furnishing fund of the splendid new U. P. Churih of Butler, Pa. Expeotationa run high and anticis pation was on tip toe, for those who were privileged to know the Musical ability of Mr. Robertson and his class felt satisfied that we would have a rich entertainment; and when we say, that the expectations of those who were best informed, wero more than realized, we but faintly express the deep seutiments of admiration and ecstasy which were kindled in the hearts of all lovers of mut sic who were permitted to listen to the rich, sweet and elegant musio of the oc casion. The class did credit to themselves and their worthy teacher. So well did each and all perform their parta that we would not be excusable if we were vain enough to undertake to particularize. These lections were good, and of aufficient va riety to make the entire performance en tertaining and instructive- The lady, who performed upon the Piano is an ex cellent player and deserves great credit. The two leading, Soprano singers a>-e deservedly held in high estimation for the part they took in the performance. This Concert haa given an impetus to ths musical talent ot Butler, which was very much needed and it will no doubt do us good. It has been intimated that we may possibly be favored withjSnother visit by this class shortly. Come, one and all. "Friends, of my youth," bring your rich apparel, and we will welcome you to our "old Fireside." THE question of reconstruction is no longer an open ene. It was settled by the people in their elections one year ago. Their decision was rendered after a careful examination of the cane; they heard both parties, considered the plana proposed and weighed the arguments ad vanced by each. The isauo was clearly defined as between the President and Congress, and the people understood it as well, if not better, than any na tional question they had ever voted upon. They decided in favor of Congress aB •gainst the President. The;, ultcted a Congress strong enough to defy the President's opposition, and committed to it the work of teconnstructing the gov ernment. To that Congress slone tiicy look for the restoration of the States lately in rebellion, and they hold it re sponsible for the manner in which it shall be done. The plan it has determ ined upon, and which it has submitted to the Southern people for their adop tion, is the only one that need be ex pected from that body. Its rejection by the South may delay the work of recon struction but it» final consummation on this basis cannot be prevented by any op position they may offer. The Congress that offers these terms must remain in power for two years to come, and it is idle to suppose that any of these States can or will be allowed to remain in their present status for that longth of time. It is just as idle to suppose that Con great will iin any respect yield or recede. Even should there occur that reaction in Northern sentiment which the enemies of Congress so ardently hope for, but which today is as far removed as ever, it could avail nothing. No rev olution in public sentiment could change the political character of Congress within the next two years, and without this, it would amount to nothing to far aa re construct!: n is concerned. The policy of Congress has been finally determined, and resistance to it can accomplish noth iug but—delay— Franklin Repository. FROM the Yankee Dokotian, of the 12t'n inst., we learn that the returns from the various counties on the Missouri slope of Dakota Territory indicate a Re publican victory in the recent election Yankton county gave a handsome major ity for the straight Republican ticket Clay county did the same while Union county elected one Councilman from tho straight Republican nominees, the re mainder being both Democrats and Re publicans running upon what was called the Union ticket. No political issue was made in th« upper counties. Re ports from Bon Homme are to the effect that the election was carried by the votes of the Nebraskians imported for the pur pose, and it i®"*imored that the election will be contetifed. WE do not tear General Grant in any emergency. So says the Cincinnati tn qnirer. So said the Rebel General Bragg at Mission Ridge; and half an hour af ter his army of seventy five thoussnd men were beaten and fleeing in every direction. —There is more he !p to yonr soul in one moment's conviction that God, look ing on your personality, says,"l I<iit you," than in all ordinary experience.

Roberston's Music class tore turn to the citizens of Butler our heart fait thanks for the kind attention shown us and the hospitable manner in which we were entertained during our shert stay with them. They seemed to Tie with each other in Diking our visit a pleaeant one, and they more than succeeded. I once heard a celebrated divine remark that "Butler" was famous for talents and starvation, the former we sndorae ; but the latter we do enter our protest against. The worst wisb we have for this diviDe is that he may fall into the hands of the Buttorians sometime after having fatted ten (10) or twelve (12) hours and if he don't change his mind I am not a Proph et, that's all. And now in closing we thank you "gain, peopie of Butler ; and our earnest wish awd prayer is, that, you may not only be blest with an abundance of the geod things of this life ; but that you may always "be characterized by the same generous spirit which was shown to us. Yours truly, Friends of my Youth- BENZONIA, Mich. Oct. 17th 1867. MAJ. ANDERSON, Dear Sir : —I wish some of your readers wbo have been dis gusted with the way in which the good old Agricultural Society of Butler Co., has been turned into a joint Stock, Horse racing Association had been here last week to see how we do in the back* woods. If they had, there would have been a very sudden rise iD Heal Estate in this vicinity. Our Fair passed off very pleasantly, the weather was vory disagreeable but we had a very creditable turn out. Two hundred and Eighty nine entries. One n>an brought a wagon load ofvegetablis &c.. conspicuous among which were three Squashes weighing re spectively 111, 115 and 116 pounds, as I was on the Committee of arrangement I saw them weighed and assisted in car rying tliem in. They were about two feet in diameter- We had Turnips and Beets weighing 8 or 9 pounds a piece. Potatoes of nearly two pounds and other things in proportion. The show of fruit was small but of excellent quality. Dv. Walker exhibited ten varieties of I'ears and also some very fine Plu»s and Apt pies. Several persons exhibited Apples Peaches and Grapea equal to anything I ever saw elsewhere. The Floral Dei 7'«rtmcnt was beautiful. Such Parities Aators and Dahlies you nover saw. It is said that the Dahlies run out hero. I took a diploma for one tliat ha' 1 , rua out to the height of Seven feet nine inohes- Next year I intend to select some good roots put them in a well-prepared bed and take care ot them and see if they wont run out a^ain. I wish you could tako a sail on Crys tal Lake now, when the Jforests are in their full glory. The dark Green of the Hemlocks, the lighter shade of the Ce dars and Fir Balsams interminglsd with the Crimson and yellow of tho Maplos and Beech trees, and below the water like a huge mirror reflecting and setting off the tints of the Forest. I am no en' thuaiast, but such a scene as I saw to day, auch as I see every day is worth go ng for to see. Michigan abounds in fair and beautiful Lakes bat ours is the most beautiful of all. We have had very little frost here yet My Potatoes arc still green and*growing- Some of them don't show a aign of the Frost yet- Back from the Lake it is more frosty. But I must close for the present* Yours forever, W. J. YOCNO. For th«Citii«n. MR.

GEARY. Now, while we think the above law should be considered by a christian peo ple as a credit to a legislative body, that had the honor to represent them, we still thiuk tho Legislature and tho Republi can party, acted very injudiciously in passing any such act. What we want to be successful (without which our or ganization is a dead letter), is, that every Republican volar should know that this question of Temperance, Good Templars, or bad Templars, Good Whiskey or Rad Whiakoy, License of%o License, Rot Got or no Rot Gut, has nothing to do wilh lhe political istues of the present day. When that Whiskey Question becomes a polit ical issue, we shall expect every man to take whatever side pleases him. Uow foolish to quarrel about a little whiskey, and repel lrorn the Re publican party a few men whose customs aud habits partake of the oldeo times when it was a virtuous habit, and partic ularly a social accomplishment to know how to treat. The Republican party was organized to save this country. Th» question of Loyalty was the only question put to a man upon bis initiation, and the badge of treason was the only target of our league. But now, a few men who forget that "All things that are right may not be expedient," have sought to make this party a battering Ram to bat ter down th# walls of every Tavern, Sa loon and Distillery io the land. They think to break th* Devil's head end drive sin out of the world at one grand blow, and like the old hen that laid the gooso egg, they would kill themtelves an I the party in the operation. The true way to look at the question is, that the Demo* cratic party is the Devil , aud if its head was eutirely broken, the way would be open to every reform. We defeated treason and rebellion by defeating the Democratic pany ; and now, we wish to defeat the cunning conspiracy between the Rebels, the Democrats, and Cana dians, to rob our country and posterity of the priceless jewels bought by the blood of our brethren, we must throw every thing aside but that one question. Vi e have tried this side issue to our sorrow, and must now take a leison from our misfortune, and re'urn to those days of 'Ol, when the on'y question was, wil' you fight for the Stars and Stripes Do you love the t Uniou of our fathers? When the Tocsin of Wnr was sounded, and the recruit presented himeeif, there no ques tion of Whiskey, or License, or any thing of this kind was atked. Let it be so again, and eay, as a party, to every legal voter, that our only motto is, that "the loyal shall rule." If you believe that whiskey should be free as water to every man that has 10 cents, all right. If you only believe iu)tbe t ruth of thoso great principles oflluman Freedom, that were sealed with the blood of Four Hundred Thousand, Republicans, that is all we ask. If you, on the contrary, believe that a mm should never indulge more than 0 cups of coffee, 3 cups of tei. 4 ounces of tobacco, aud half a dozen ce gars in a day. that Apple outter should be made without oider, and whiskey should never be sold by less measure than 10 gallons, to be kept in the cellar for the daily colic, all right if you can only vote to keep the murderers of your fathers and brothers from place and pow er over us. Now, Good Templars, Read the above circular ami let it satisfy you that no liquor issue can save our country. This Circular was a regular campaign docu ment, aud at the B<tinc time an argument, direct in favor of indiscriminate and un res train/ed traffic in ardent spirits; an sr. gUinpnt in favor of disorderly houses,and of Habbath breaking-, nevertheless, take that to (he private roim of your Demo cratic Deacon, on Sunday morning, aud pray with him until the Tuesday mom ing of the election, and he still will vote the Democratic ticket aud laugh at your foolishness The above document should be sjfficieut io repel every christian man from the Democratic patty, but loug ex perience has proven that party spirit will often overcome moral convictions. The country and the interest of humanity demand that a Republican President be elected in 1868. This is work enough for one day, and to this every other pur pose muet be subservient. All are wel come to give to loyalty a crown, and in the lauguage of Andy, tho Apostate, once more "Make Treason Odious " And in this, let all be assured that they shail be protected in their rights, and that they support a party pledged to one and only purpose, immediate salvation of our country from the hands of its ene» mies. They have won by fraud a tem porary victory. The hosts will bo mar shalled for November, '6B. Then shoul der to shoulder let them be met, and a 2ud Gettysburg w:ll send them reeling to tho Rapidan, or son} 6 other dam. MONITOR. TALLEYRAND ouce gave as his opin ion that lauguage was intended not to ex press but conceal ideas. In American politics this theory seems to have been accepted as correct. For instance we have in this country a great national par ty advocating the doctrin that the goverm ment belougs to a particular class of its citizens, and that none outside of that class should have any voice iu its dire roction or control, and it is called the Democratic party. Now either Talley« raud was right or else this party is guil. ty of an unwarranted pcrvisione of lau guague. We don't adtn tthe correctness ot the theory, the party may and most likiily does. According to our notion it is an improper use of tne English lan-» guajie, a prevision, a fraud. Democracy, as we have been taught, don't signily the rule of any particu.ar class of the people, but of ill the people. .Literally and hisi toricallf it means the same thing. A careful study of its derivation aud its historic meaning will salsify any one of this fact. It implies the right in those who are governed to say of what c tar» j actcr their government shall be aud how ! it shall be directed. This very party admits all this, and until recently Was accustomed in its mass meetings and contentions to declare in solemn terms that all governments, derive their ju-t powers from that consent ot the govern-, ed. Yet in seeking power it combats this veiy theory and resists every effort that is made to reduce it to practice It calls itsrlf Democratic and advocates | just what its name does not imply. Ins stead of being Democratio in it* ideas i» is jnst the opposite ; it ignores the people as a mass ami would restrict all power to a paiticular class To uall it democratic is to disregard all propriety, call virtue vice, or black white. Wo seldom thijk of this when speaking of the party, be cause wo have become aceu touted to the provision ; just as wo would to any other abusive lauguage frequently in-, dulged in and long continued. Democ racy way answer as well as any other word ot au equal nnmber of letters merely to designate a praticular party, bat as for expressing or in anywise indica ting the principles of the party that is now called by that name, it is worse than worthloss — Frank fin Rejmri'ory.
