The National Int'lligencer, , John son's ororan at Washington, regards the sue-, cess of the Copperheads in Connecticut as a great calamity —to his party, and the re joicings of Tuesday are turned into mourn ings on edupsday, for the reason that its * party must have the votes of the negroes if thev hope to succeed, and the election in Connecticut was gaine i in the interests of i those who are opposed to negro suffrage. Their "Southern friends" cannot rt-joice with th. m. Kuf Little -Rhode island at !;•! election on last Wednesday remained t ui to ID r loval record. It has taken a few years' advance of her sister Connecticut, and we hope will by b<-r examp'e improve the moral tone and stiffen the back-bone of the Radical element that is so vacillating as to give corruption and fraud, with negro hat red, and intolerance the governing powei in a State whose iutellig nee should have brought forth different fruit. All hail! • 1 Rhode Island! It is a great thing to be right, if you are sma'l. A GOOD ANSWER —The Provisional Legislature of North Carolina lately invited "all the States, North, South, East and West," to meet in national convention, f r the purpose of proposing amendments to the Constitution of the United States. Gov. Geary, in laying these resolutions before the Legislature of the State, r minded il e. North C ardina gentlemen that it is not] the place of defeated traitors "to ask tin loyal men of this coun ry to meet them upon equal terms in Convention to amend the Constitution tl.ey repudiated and at tempted to destroy. Democratic papers state that the Connecticut ejection was fought and w.n on the war record of their party, the) LIE. The Jerson they have elected Gov ernor voted for the Abolition of Slavery in the District of Columbia, for the Constitu tional Amendment Abolishing Slavery, was a good war democrat, and his course during the war was so obnoxious to "bis party" that he was burned in effigy and denounced as a renegade. They have been compelled to cast aside their Toucevs and Seymours. The adherents of English claimed that he had been as loyal during the war as Go v.TI aw ley. That was one of the issues made. BPSVCoI. Levi L. Tate, for a long time publisher of the Bloomsburg Democrat has commenced the pub ication of a new paper at Williarusport entitled the Lycoming Standard It is a sprightly sheet, vwl printed and well edited We wish him pecuniary success. We hope, however, thai he will be able to avoid those rocks upon which the Gazette is fast losing its littli life. Such as, "white man," "nigger" "Ste vens," " god aiid-iiiuialil•• Sir ner.' "higher power" "black man," "wool." The poor thing got too much on its naturallv weak •*to nacli. an lis hastening rapidly ti the grave, without eliciting even a crocodile tear. General Longstivet, recently, it recommending a cordial acceptance of tie military reconduction bill, followed the ex ample of some of his most notorious coiu panions-in arms, in telling his r°bel breth ren that they vveie "a conquered people,' and that, "recognizing this fact fairly and squarely, there is but one course left foi wise men to pursue, and that is to accept the terms offeied by the conquerors." L is as natural for the parties who commenced the rebellion to lose some of the immuni ties they posses-ed before thev opened tlieii batteries on Fart Sampler' as it would have been for them to rend asunder the Union, and prohibit the Government of the Unite i States from exercising anv author ity w lialever south of Mason and Dixon 1 .- line, if LEE had been victorious instead of GRANT. Southern soldiers remember that theao was a war, and who was whipped, even when the Southern and Copje-rhead politicians seem to forget the Bteiu logic of the last six year#. The formal organization of the Re publican party in North Carolina on the '"round of equal sufftage is an event inj which all men, of whatever political opin ions or party affiliations, have reason to re- Ijoice. For this establishes free discussion I once more in this one of the Southern j States; it creates two parties there, and : ihus secures free government. ; We congratulate the Republicans of North Carolina that they have taken the nama of Republicans, instead of "Union party" w hich at first they used. They are Repubicans; they have taken their piace, 'squarely, now, iu the ranks of the Repub lican party; and they have a right to de mand the assistance of the Republicans ■ f the northern states—which we trust will not be refused them. Connecticut. The Republicans of Connecticut have j lost the election, but they can afford to ! lose it. They planted themselves upon the just ground of universal suffrage. We trust they wi.l not budge an inch from | that platform. Let them stick to it, and zealously educate the people up to it. Connecticut is notorious as a negro-hat ing state. Schools for the education of negro children have been broken up there, j nd a year or two ago a negro was mobbed there, and some Dogberry, whose name we have forgotten, advised the negro to leave the state. Ignorant and inhuman prejudices have therefore to be met and i overcome, and Governor Ilawlev and his party need i.ot be discouraged at one de feat It is their mission to train the people of die state to liberal and sound views, to a love for equal justice, and they w ill remem ber, we trust, that, occupying right and I just ground, heir defeat now ought onh | to be the precursor of an enduring victory, j The Re/ bean pa f v in Connecticut de serves the thanks of the people of the state, . because it has forced iis opponents to cast aside such men as Seymour, and put for | ward a man whom they formerly reviled, d 'louiuvi and even burned in effigv—a m u v ho in even thing hut the nam * was a R-pub ican during the war, md who did not hesitate to abandon his patty on the | great i<--ue> of the'time, and vote for eman cipation in the District of Columbia first, and for the total abolition of slavery iu ev ery state, afterwards. IION. ALBERT G. DROWN, of Mississippi, in his letter advising an acceptance of the 1 military reconstruction bill, denies that it is either probable or desirable that the col i "ted race will decline in numbers in the | South. He says: "The negro is a fixture in this country lie is not going out of it, he is not going to die out, and lie is not I going to be driven out. Nor is his exodus from the country Uesirab'e." He thus takes direct issue alike with those who ad vanced the absurd doctrine that freedom wilijmne a fatal gift to the colored men, j and with those who have contended that the interests of the white race would be . promoted by a removal from the South of • her mast productive laborers. The Missis sippi statesman follows up his argument I j with the conclusion that, "if the negro is Ito stay here, and it. is desirable to have '! him do so," that it is the duty of intelligent 1 j white men to "educate him, admit him i when sufficiently instructed to the right o; , ; voting, and as rapidiv as possible prepare j hun for a safe an-l rational enjoyment ol L that 'equa'ity before the law' which as r freeman lie has a right to claim, ami which we cannot long refuse to give." P; v ° i THE DEPARTURE of General HANCOCK ' with 1,5011 men, upon an expedition against a\ the Kioways and Cheyewnes, indicates thai !.; the hostile Indian tribes on and above tin j Arkansas* River will speedilv be overawed ; But meanwhile the Sioux, who perpetrate-i 'jilie F-rt Phil Kearney massacre, remaii 11 1 unpunished, and the tragedy at Fort Bu - | tr-1 is a terrible proof that the savage? . have been incited to new deeds of borroi • by their apparent immunity from retribu- j tive justice.

Copperheads and traitors, all the auguries • are deceptive. Last Tuesday's and Wed nesday's papere containing the Connecticut returns simultaneously recor led Repubii ' can triumphs in nearly every otlmr State 1 ■ Both Ohio and Michigan held elections on I the same dav. in Michigan there was an -' electiou for two regents of the Siate Uni-j • versitv, a Justice of the Supreme Court, ; and one hundred an 1 twenty delegates to • revise the Constitution. In Ohio there was i an election for township and city officers. , j The Repeblicans carried Michigan,although tithe vote was light, by a very large major- City —elected their whole State ticket and a f majority of the delegates to the const itu - tional convention. In Ohio, where there t was more of a contest, STARK, the Union s candidate for mayor in Cincinnati, has e | 4.400 majority, and the average majority t. of the Union ticket is 5,000, showing a n Union ga nof 1 500. Columbus re-elects a Democratic mayor, and shows a Union e gain of 500 over the vote of last vear. To >t ledo elects the entire Radical ticket I y from a three to five hundred majority, and ftom h ten to twelve councilmen, exhibiting a sub stantial Union gain. From Dubuque, lowa, : a special despatch announces the election of CRAVES (Republican) mayor by 300 majority—last year the Copperheads had g 250 majority. From Missouri we learn e that the election in the city or St. Louis j resulted in the triumph of JAMES J. TIJOM ,) AS. Radical, by fifteen hundred majority, n From Circlevi le, Tennessee, we learn that I- WALKE, Union candidate for mayor, was ,§ ! elected by sixty-seven majority; a large , r Union gain The returns of the election i- m Rhode Bland, next door to Connecticut, show that the Copperheads made no fight, and the Radicals swept the field. So much P for the other Stales who voted almost at I I the same time with Connecticut. The . J contrast shows that, whatever causes mav 11 have operated in Connecticut, they were .' not felt in other quarters. But if we turn s to the South we realize the costliness of tbe victory in Connecticut to the Copper ; head leaders. It every Southern Slate the i traitors, with whom th-y sympathize, are i 1 making herculean efforts to secure the col " j ored vote. Failing in this, there will . 1 scarcely be left a vestige of opposition to ijihe Radicals in the coming election. But in the midst of their intrigues for this sup i port, and while they are putting themselves , ! prominently forward as better friends of the i negro than the men who advocated and 'forced emancipation, the intellig nee of a i Copperhead \ictory in Connecticut fa'ls : upon them like a thunderbolt. If tliev f publicly rejoice over it, they only prove i what utter hypocrites they are in their . professions of regard for the colored man; ii and if they fail to rejoice, it is exactly like - telling the Connecticut sympathizers that j hey have labored in vain. Already, there fore, the Connecticut election has had its i fleet in t.e South, not only upon the , j whiles, but upon the Macks, for the latter i. must now je c ive, f, in 'ee>', they needed it an\ further assurance, that every vote ca-t the iittiicul party iu the Worth is in the interests of their enemies at home, and that their only reliance is upon the , radical party. — Phil a.

FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS: Having just opened a commodious shop for the sale of LIQUORS in this place, I embrace this opportunity of informing you that on; Saturday next I will commence the busi-. 1 ness of making DRUNKARDS, PAUPERS and BEGGARS, for the industrious and respecta- i ble of the community to support.

I will, for a small sum, undertake upon I short notice, and with the greatest expedi tion, to piepare victims for the POOR HOUSE, ASYLUMS, PRISONS, and the GALLOWS. I will furnish an article suited to the taste, and w ill increase the number of aeci- i i dents, multiply distressing disease and ren-j ler those comparatively harmless incura-i bfe. I will deal in drugs which will deprive some of LIKE, many of REASON, most of PROPERTY, and all of PEACE, which will cause fathers to become FIENDS, wives t<<; become WIDOWS, children to become OK- j pit AN s, and all to be GREAT SUFFERERS I will cause the rising generation to grow | up in ignorance and prove a nuisance to the nation I will cause mothers to forget their helpless children, and priceless virtue no longer to remember its value. I will endeavor to corrupt the ministers |of the gospel, defi'e the purity of the j churches, and cause spiritual, temporal and | eternal death. If any should be so impertinent as to ask why I have the audacity to bring such j accumulated misery upon a comparatively j i happy people, my HONEST reply is "GREEN- \ | BACKS.
