A FRANK KLFLI
The following letter from John S. Mann, Esq., of Coudersport, Potter county, Penn sylvania, is poiuted and opportune. Ran dall, chief of the Bread-and-Butter Brigade t Washington, addressed Mr. Mann, sup posing him to be still postmaster at Cou- a position which IHJ occupied up to January last, when he took his seat as a representative in the Legislature from his couuty. Not knowing that he had resigned. Randall sent him, as to all other officials, a priuteJ circular, aud Mr. Mann's Reply is as follows; COUDERSPOKT, POTTER CO., PA., July G, 18GG. //on A. W. Randall: Dtar Sir : Your favor of June 25, en closing a call for a National Union Con vention, is received, with a request that if the call meets my approbation, I will sig nify it by a brief letter for publication. I presume I have as good a right to sig nify my dissent as approval of this call, and I therefore take the liberty of saying that I have no sympathy with it nor with the men whose names are signed ti it. In the spring of 1862 I spent some weeks ■in Washington, and every day was a lis tener to the great debate in the Senate on ' the right and duty of confiscating the prop- i •erty of traitors. The speeches of Messrs. Cowan, Doolittle, and Browning on that occasion were all of them calculated, if not •intended, to throw obstacles in the way of the triumph of our arms, and when I re turned home 1 told my friends thoso Sen ators would all land in the camp of the Copperheads before the contest was settled. The endorsement of this call by the Cop perhead members of Congress shows that rt is the bridge over which these betrayers of their constituents are to march to the ■disloyal party of the nation. If you think you can build up a party •of any slrength by parading the name of there n-creantsto the principles that exalted Ibem into power, you deceive yourself. The people are in earnest; they have made such sacrifices as no pen can portray to overthrow treason, and no sophistry can 'c heat them out of the just fruits of their | victtfry* so dearly purchased —the first of which is, that loyal men, if they are only *-five thousand" in a State, shall cuutrol its •destinies and fill its offices. Your movement seeks to give the control tf the government of the nation into the Viands of those who sought to destroy it, *T)d of their sympathizers; and so it will fail, just as the great Chicago movement failed. Read the effort to build up a Ty ler party, and take warning. i Truly yours, for a National Union of] loyal men. JOHN S. MANX. We have here an insight into the des picable machinery of the Post office I)e partment. Every one of the thousands of postmasters throughout the country has received one of these circulars, and is ex pecced to respond, on pain of dismissal. Was ever Austrian despotism more shame less thau this? And the rtian who under-, takes it professes to be a Republican.— Washington IXispatch to Philadelphia, Press. The Zauesville (Ohio) Courier says it •once heard General W. T. Sherman explain how it happened he never voted but once for President: tell you why," said the Genera', 4i l never voted but once, and then I disfran chised myself." Such looks of wonder and incredulity as this produced may be imagined, but the General p ying no attention thereto, pro ceeded. "I never voted for a President but ouce in my life, and that was for Buchanan, and I am since satisfied that any perron who, was d—d fool enough to do that, has not sense enough to exercise the elective fran- j chise I disfranchised myself, and conse quently shall not vote." Col. Forney has published a long edito- 1 Gal letter to the President, giving him leave to print all and any of his private letters written to him since the assassina tion of Mr. Lincoln, lie'speaks in very sharp and sarcastic terms of the President's] cousse iu giving out such letters for pub lication, and says it is consistent with his; betrayal of the party which placed him in the Presidential chair. The letter closes with a word to the President in reft'erence to his personal affairs, and hints that it may be necessary to tell a full story of the dis graceful scenes of Inauguration day. A novel way of making change recently occurred at Hong Kong, in China. An Americen having complained to a native judge of a tailor who had cheated him, the official sentenced the culprit to fifty blows of the bastinado—a sentence which was at once executed, and the American charged fifty cents costs. The judge, not being able to change the dollar given him bv the O D • American, the latter humorously told him to take it out in the same manner. Ac cordingly the tailor was again tied down and received fifty more blows, thus making 1 up in his own person the required change.

Can soldiers espouse the cause of deserters and vote for the active friends of deserters'! is a bit of sarcasm in the following from the Sandusky Register, which must be felt by all who read it: "There is a startling rumor afloat that Presi dent Johnson lias offered Jeff, Davis his liberty if he will consent to preside over the Philadel phia Convention, and give it the eclat of his ; name. Rumor further says that Davis indig nantly refuses, and prefers any other method of humiliation—even ironing." " most bitter opponents of an error arc those who know the most about it. Before,du j ring and since the rebellion Southern Unionists have not for one moment been deceived by the ; subterfuges of the rebels at home or their allies in the North. At a recent meeting in Shelby county Missouri, it was resolved "that any pol icy that is warmly supported by every rebel, | Copperhead, and guerilla in the land, is not the policy for Union men." That resolution ought j to be reaffirmed by every Union convention in j the United States. About 4 o'clock on the morning of June the 27th. Geo. Manley's blacksmith shop on Broad Street, Emporium was discovered to be on fire. The building and contents were entirely destroyed. Mr. Manley's loss is about $2,0(10, no insurance.

They are worthy, industrious young men, and it is hoped those having account# with them, will call ut once and sittle.— Pre**. decided that Gen. Rosseau should be publicly reprimanded, but fuiled to do anything with GrinnclL Our opinion is that both should have been expelled. Rosseau played the part of bully, and Grinell that of blackguard.

CST*I 11 1 860 Oregon elected Baker, Republ ican, and Nesruith, Union Democrat, to the Senate; But Nesmiih gradually relapsed into the embrace of the old Democracy, and now votes just as Jeff. Davis would vote if he were a Senator. The recent election in Oregon involved the issue of Nesmith's re-election, and the Re publicans have carried both branches of the legislature, thus giving him notice to retire. A true Union man will take his place on the 4th of March next. Well done for Oregon. Penn sylvania will render the same condemnation of the apostate Cowan in October next, and elect a loyal man to succeed him. They have a new paper at Williamsport, calling itself the Union Republican. It is a spicy sheet. "Bets" money—a thing printers don't generally have too much of. Gets dis composed and calls somebody a "liar, scoun drel and villifier." Says its for Geary, but | loves Johnson. "Ye cannot serve God and Mammon." "Stick to the truth and shame the devil." (We don't mean to say that Johnson bears any relation to Mammon or the devil)? Don't get into a bad humor about Congressman for this district—his po&t-ojjice privileges have have been restricted. Don't get "dead-ducks" on the brain—stronger minds than yours have been sadly deranged by the feathered tribe. Keep cool. The people are not fools. 11 is too late in the day to play hypocrite success fully. "THE OLD IOG GRANT." The following article from the Springfield,lll. | Journal, needs no supplement, It is respect fully referred to the gentlemen who are engaged in the pleasant pastime of asking the Pennsyl vania soldiers to vote for Hiester Clvmer against John W. Gear}', for Governor of Pennsylvania. Even more amusing and astonishing than the new-born approval of Andrew Johnson by his recent slanderers and persecutors, in thus effort to rally the support of the soldiers for Clymer their chief assailant in the State. I f (lie Copper heads represented by Clymer had one hatred \ stronger, it is that which thev bear to Licuten ant General Grant; and the La Crosse Dc/nocrtU that is so calumnious of him, deserves the more credit than they, because it speaks precisely as it feals. How curious it is to contrast the Cop perhead dislike of Grant with the Copperhead a lrniratino of Lee I While they eiccrate the one as a butcher, they canonize the other as a saint,forgetting that, long belorc Grant finally defeated Lee, the latter was fully conscious of his fate, yet kept his famishing and fainting troops in the field, as if for the purpose of offer theui up as victims to the bayonets of the Union . heroes. But read the article: The La Crosse Democrat, one of the leading papers of the Democratic party in Wisconsin,} makes a furious onslaught upon Gen. Grant, of} whom it speaks as follows: Ah, but old dog of Galena, your teeth are gone,and as the age of miracles has passed away you are not likely to grow a new set right away, What an aspiration for a man by whose •orders the torch swept the fair land and beau tiful Shenadoah! Nero diddling dancing, and reveling over the wreck of burning, did not ask another Rome te satiate his passions; but Gen. Grant, who planned deeds, and caused by his agents, horrors at which the civilized world stood aghast, is dissatisfied because the war did not last a year longer, that he might have used the persuasive agencies of the torch,rope,pillage and murder upon portions of the South still un visited. This infamous attack upon the character of 1 General Grant, also comprises all who served under him.and is one of the foulest slanders ever uttered against American soldiers. Notwith standing this is the language of leading Demo* j cratic journals, and undoubtedly represents the spirit of the party uis manifested during and since the war, there are persons in it who ex pect to hoodwink soldiers with professed friend ship, and cajole them into an organization con trolled by such journals as those, from which the foregoing infamous extract was taken.— Philadelphia Dress, £3§F"The composition of the so-called "Na tional Union Convention" to be held in Phila ! delphia, in August, presents sorry blunderers. From men claiming to be Union down to dem agogues and rebels of the Woods-Breckinridge stripe, the delegates elected and those suggested present a conglomeration of all that is corrupt, time-serving, and traitorous. Unwashed and unrepentant rebels hope by its doors to enter Congress, repeal all test-oaths, repudiate the national bonds, and punish—not the men who sought to destroy the government, but those who bravely rescued it from their treasonable atiempt. For these men to raise a banner on whose face is inscribed "Union," is supremely ludicrous. The people have been deceived too often by the false notes of this party to join very enthusiastically in the chorus of this last song. The real metre is too palpable. I ntelli genee is past being frightened by the terms "Radical," "Negro-Lovers," and "Rump Cou gress." Four vears of war lias tested the char acter, weighed the truth, and demonstrated the justice of much that frightened political babes in davs gone by. The defeat of Lee at Gettys burg decided more than the question of his ad vance in the State. It opened the strengthened the hearts, and quickened the un derstanding of a large mass who previously be lieved the Democratic party infallible. 11 gave new force to the truth tbßt a Benedict Arnold might be * reanimated, and a Judas lake new pieces of silver. The Constitution which in the hands of Buchanan was too weak to protect it self, in the hands of the martyr Lincoln became a tower of strength, under whose strong walls treason, state rights, and secession, sunk in utter defeat. The spirit may be subdued, may be changed, may develope new phases and claim fresh privileges, but if power is not given unto it its pernicious designs and evil machinations mil work only discomfiture aud disappoint roent to its adherents. The men whose courage, patience, perseverance, love of principle, and steadfast loyalty, preserved, sustained and de fended the Republic in its hour of peril, are well able, now that the full storm lias passed and feeble mutterings only heard, to settle the score of blood and establish guarantees for the hfture. To take it out of their hands and give it to those who did the wrong, Would be making the mur derer the judge at his own trial. Mercy is a good thing—Justice is a better, God tempered justice with mercy, and Adam ftnd Eve went out from Paradise. Are we wiser than God? Is human love and human generosity more no ble? Punishment has followed crime from the time our first parents learned the difference be ; tween good and evil. Cain was branded, Judas hung himself, Arnold was an exile and died in j a garret, but Davis eats milk and honey. This last is not sufficient and the Philadelphia Con- I vention is expected to reraerly it. Southern re bels must be admitted to Congress, Jeff Davis must be released, and Vallaudigham and nten of his ilk given control of the government they lately declared had ceased to exist. Such is the programme. The delegates, as will be seen by what follows, are mostly from the party which j declared the war a failure. Pennsylvai ia's state j convention consisted of two dozen office-holders j and one dezen expectants, not selected by pub lic meetings but self-appointed. Notice who control the conventions to send delegates. "Conservative," means Johnson office-holders. "Democrat" means rebel and copperhead oppo nents of the war. In Rhode Island the Democratic State C?en i tral Committee has taken action. I h Connecti cut conservative Union men call a mass State convention. A conservative State Convention I lias been held in Pennsylvania. The democrats jof Vermont will have delegates in attendance. In Maryland ronservative delegates will be ap pointed. The old Breckinridge State Committee of Virginia has taken steps to the same end. Conventions have been called in South Caro lina. Georgia, and Alabama. The Democratic State Central Committee of Louisiana have ap i pointed a full delegation,placing ihe rebel arm v | under contribution for the pursose. Among them are Gen. Dick Taylor, Alexander Bouton W. C. 0. Clay bourne, H.M. Spofford and Judge j A bell, therebeing but one man, Gen. TJ.Hcr ron, on the list who was not a rebel. A dele jgation of "conservative'' Union men headed bv Christian Rosclins, will contest tin ir seats. The conservative members of Congress from Tenn essee will also be in attendances well as those from Mississippi. The "Clavbank" State con vention of Missouri those delegates some davs since. The democrats of Illinois will send*a full number. Indiana will be provided for by ■ the democrats; Ohio will liave a composite delegation; so also will Wisconsin. lowa will be represented by General Augustus C, and assciates of that stamp; also bv "a stron" delegation of conservative Republicans." Judge Hughes, a prominent citizen of India na, an old Democrat but a true Union man, a believer in Johnson but not in copperhead ism believing that the Philadelphia Convention will be an asentblag of copperheads and rebels, writes the following letter to Governor Morton: "Washington, July Id. 13GG. "Governor Morton; The Proposed Philadel phia Convention tends to the alxsorpfion by the! democratic party cf the conservative Union men of the North.

Let the Democratic partyfirst retire its conspicuous anti-war leaders, and let sufficient time elapse for the grass to grow on the graves of the heroic dead. For the present 1 advise all Union men to remain steadfast in their own organization, hoping that its dissensions may yet be healed, and to keep aloof from procedings which can only result in the election of the regular democratic ticket in I ndiana.
