HARVEY SICKLER, Editor. TUNKHANNOCK, PA Wednesday, Apr. 12,1865. THE N. IS, DEMOCRAT OFUCE, has been removed "round tbe cormer" to rooms over Hon. Win, M. Piatt's Law office. Our de linquent subscribers should not forget the place. It is a great deal easier to find tbe office, now. than ever before. Try it! ■ ■ sx It is with emotions of pleasure and gratitude that we announce, to day, the no biest and most decisive victory of the war. Gen. Lee has surrendered himself and his army to our forces, upon terms entirely hon orable to all concerned. The victory is enno bled by being a bloodless one. The only man that could centre and control! the dis cordant and rebellious elements of tho south, has pledged his honor not to take up arms until exchanged. With judicious manage ment, and the exercise of wise statesmanship the war would now be at an end, and tha union speedily restored. Whether the im practicable, fanatical crew, who now controll our affairs, will listen to the voice of reason, and humanity, and stop the further useless sacrifice of' blood ml _'reasure, remains to be seen. llow THE MONEY GOF.S. The Legislature of our State has passed a bill to increase the. pay of members to SIOOO each, being an ad vance of S3OO on the pay of last year. So much for Abolition retrenchment and reform, about which we heard so much previous to the advent of the present party topiwer But as long as the people can be gulled by their promises, which are only made *to be broken, just that leng will tho tax-payers be plundered with impunity. The Abolitionists seek office for the purpose af enriching them selves at the expense of the people, and the winder is that the members did not make their own pay S2OOO while they were at it. They will do this next year, mark our pre diction—if sustained at the ballot boxes in October. Lancaster L.teilgencer. PEACE. —The following is an extract from Greeley's peace article in the Tribune, of the 20th ult. "We are confident that the rebellion is crushed, and further blood-shed needless, — Only let President Liucolu ev uce an earnest desire that the war shall now end—let him appeal to the people of the South to 6tay this useless, wasteful effusion of blood and throw herself on the clemency of their country, and we firmly believe that the next thirty days may see the close of the war." This means that the Abolition party shall get ready to veer around, as soon as the war closes take possession of the peace platform, and tben curse the war into ignomin\ r —all to be on the popular side. Following up the Tribune, the Washington Chronicle says: "In our judgment, the only way to attain these results, is by tho exercise of a wise and liberal poiicy toward the southern people. The spirit of revenge must have no place in our treatment of them. Luckily, policy and expediency call for the exercise of magnan imity and liberality. Cupidity and cruelty may demand indiscriminate confiscations and relentless persecutions ; but a wise and hu mane Government will turn a deaf ear to such scoundrels: In no other way can the country escape all the horrors of a protracted financial revulsion. Expediency and duty are always in harmony, but it is not„often in human affairs that the parallel is so unmis takable." - ■■ How TRUE. —The Cincinnati Gazette says "The patriot In this war is the private soldier; the man who endures all the hard ships and faces all the dangers of the war with no share in its rewards and tut an un divided portion in its glories which bring no personal honors. They advance to the charge which decides the fate of the battle in the face of a storm of death, or they rush to the assault of murderous fortifications a glorious sictory won, the commander's name rings ihroughout the land, the swift gratitude of ♦be Government mounts the popular impulse and promotes him, perhaps repeating it at an instant; they fall to unknown grave", their names even too numerous for the war bulle tins, An indifferent addenda to the glorious ascription mentions our loss at so many thou sands, and the country congratulates itself on the cheapness of the victory, and pays its dept of gratitude in honors and offerings to the fotunate commander." —— XX A doctor up town, recently gave the following prescription for a lady : "A new bonnet, a Cashmere ghawl and a new pair of gaiter boots." The lady, it is now needless to say, has entirely recovered. ■•> STX The "colored people" of Rhode Is land have nominated Edward Harris, of Woonsocket as their candidate for governor. Hope he may be elected. A Scribler from Charleston has 6ent some relics, from what he calls a slave pen io that locality, to Boston. It ought to be placed side by side with a relic of a slave-ship, in which the Yankees carried tho negroes they stole from Africa and 6old South. SURRENDER OF LEE AND HISWJROLE ARMY TO GRANT.

It is our deliberate judgment that the young Draper is a full believer in the doc trine that' 'Modesty is a quality that highly adorns a woman 1 ' but is not a component part of the character of a gentleman and pa triot. SIBO,OOO for two weeks, is $360,000 a month, or $4,320,000 per annum. A toler ably fat office for a young man amid the pressure of hard times during our great civil war. That he has at least a full apprecia tion of the value of his service*, we shall cot attempt to deny. However, having displayed such astonishing ability for charging, we suggest that he shall now join the cavalry so that he may charge to bis heart's content, and inflict his destructive blows upon the enemy. It is a sad thought that the huge grabber pendant at the extremity of his cot lossal right arm should be devoted to the depletion of the Treasury of his own country. Patriotic young man I Has he shown him self "eager for the frsy ?" Is he maimed and battle scarred, that such reward should be his? What nation, or set of lunatics ever dreamed of giving such compensation for any manner of service ? He join the cavalry draw his sabre and venture so much as to look upon the angry enemy ! Not a bit of it. Not even a taste. If this intensely 1 loyal young Draper be really a eon of Simeon It* can have no stomach for anything of the sort, though be certainly possesses the strength of a Sampson to draw his enormous pay.*- Washington— Union.

The New York Herald , of Tuesday, has the following despatch from Washirgton : The grand success of our armies before Richmond during the last three days hss in a measure, removed the secresy from events which have transpired at City Point since tbe President arrived there. lam informed by a high official in the government that in the early part of last week, Jeff. Davis made a direct overture to Mr. Lincoln to surrender everything to the United States government, and asked but one condition— everything else he would yield. That condiiton was, t hat all who had taken part in the rebellion should be resto r ed to citizenship. All else he would give up if that would be granted. Mr. Lincoln's reply was that "He did uot have the power to grant tbat point. Con gress had passed a law expressly prohibiting all persons in this rebellion holding important official positions, as well as all in their armies above the rank of Colonel, from being restor ed to citizenship, and had, therefore, taken it outofhis power to accede to that proposition" This ended that peace negotiation, and fight ing commenced within forty eight hours af terwards. The President wrote to Secretary Seward detailing the above facts. The latter, upon receiving the letter, immediately started for City Point to urge the President to accept the proposition immediately, call an extra I session of Congress, and appeal to their uiag -1 a&niuiity to ratify the terms of settlement.— But, be f ore Mr Seward anired the fighting had commenced which resulted in the cap ture of Richmond. These facts are from a reliable source, and may bo considered semi official. If this be true and had Seward's advice been taken many thousand lives would have been saved. An Abolitionist en Abolitionism. " THE WHOLE IDEA OF FLEKDMEN. A HIDE OUS JOKF.." At a recent meeting of the anti-slavery society in Boston a sharp discussion arose in relation to the condition of the "freedmon," the effect of Lincoln's emancipation procla mation, Ac., Ac. Dr. Knox, who had been down south, at Beaufort, among the R lands within Saxten's line, and who said he spoke the literal truth, from actual experience, de clared that the whole idea of "freedmen" was a hideous joke; the President's emancipa tion proclamation a sham. The so-called freedmen of the south, were, today, as bd off as they were In slavery ; worse off than before tbe war, for the northern men who have gono down there and undertaken the charge of the "pool negro," in the name of philanthropy, were full as wicked, as oppres sive, as tyrannical—yes, more wicked and avaricious, than tbe original slaveholder.— The day wages for a negro on the Sea Island cotton fields is worth $4 a day, at the pres ent prices for cotton ; but they who hold the plantations make the negro work for fifteen cents a day, and, if he dares to .complain, is treated with the foulest language, abused in various cruel ways, scourged, told he is not worthy of freedom if he complains,and threat ened with immediate enlistment in the army. In this way, they are forced to submit to tbe most galling servitude. Dr. Knox then turned his attention to the Freedmen's society. He characterized it as "The God-forsaken National Freedmen's Aid Society !" It was a humbug, a cheat; obtaining funds under false pretences to buy goods, which they sell to the negroes and then pocket the money. The society, united with tbe new northern slaveholders, were grinding the negro to the diist, in the name of humanity, and growing rich out of the suf ferings of the black man, and the miseries of the country. As for General Sax ton, Dr. Knox declared, in the moat emphatic terms and repeated the declaration, that Gen. Sax ton. who is a coward and a rascal, stands at the bead of this oppression, and is, practi cally, tho leader and the head of the slave holders at Fort Royal." ' A Pointed Rebuke. — ——— A debate took place in the U.S. Senate recently on the question of illegal arrests It vu contended by many Senators of both parties that no man can be arrested without "due process of law," and tbat military trials are mere mockeriea, unconstitutional, unlaw ful and villainous. Conness, tbe miserable creature, who misrepresents the great State of California in the Senate, expressed himself in favor of illegal arrests and trial by drunken military courts. In his speech on ttie sub ject, he said he "cared nothing for the Con stitution." Senator Trumbull of Illinois who is a strong Republican partisan, but un like most prominent men of that party, op posed to infidelity, perjury and wickedness, replied to the expression used by Conness, and in doing so, literally skinned the poor, California Infidel alive. We quote from the Globe: Mr. Trumbull. A word or two, only a word or two, as the Senator from California (Mr. Conness) who modestly assumes so much patriotism ; and if patriotism consists in noiso and bluster, he certainly is possessed of a great deal. He made himself heard most certainly, and he talks of "croaking" and of "cowards," and says that he cares nothing for the Goustitution, so that he has a coun try. He had better migrate to Dahoonev or somewhere else, where there is a country. I care, sir, for the Constitution and for liber ty, and I think a country or life itself scarce ly worth having without liberty- -without liberty regulated by law. But he is bold and brave ! bold enough to violate his oath and defy the Almighty ! Yes, sir, bold and brave and would sink tbe government, woulu vots Against all appr( priatioue, so ner than not have the power to try a man by court mar tial or a military commission. That grtai patriot would stand here and vote—vote against appropriations for the army or any thing else, if he could not arrest somebody and try him in a loyal State, where the courts are open by military commission or court martial ! He says substantially, "I will not appropriate to sustain our soldiers ; the rebels may come here and tear down the Capitol and destroy the Government, because I, the Infidel Senator from California, canoot be perm tied to have somebody arrested—no not arressted, but cannot have somebody tried by a court martial and that is his "patriotism that is his love of country ! 1 And he says no provost marshal arrested him. Why, sir, those who "crook the preg nant hinge 9of the knee where thrift may follow fawning" are never arrested. Mr. Conness rose. PRESIDING OFFICER : Docs the Senator from Illinois give way ? Mr. Trumbull. Wh3ti lam through the Senator can talk if he wishes. He need not expect to be arrested ; but the l'.ftrty he talks of is the liberty of the highwayman. Disregard law ! How is he any better than the brigand who meets ycu at night and calls upon you to stand and deliver ? No regard for law; he cares "nothing for the Constitution," so that he has a country, and j he talks of cowards and croaker ! Sir, lam not brave enough, thank God ! I am not bold enough to walk up to that stand and lay my hands upon the words of Eternal Life and promise, calling God to witness, to maintain the Constitution, and then say I care nothing for ii! Ia n not bold enough to make such a declaration. I hope I never may be. Sir, if nothing else should restrain us from treating with contempt the , Constution of the country, the oath wc have taken should restrain us, ibe appeal we have made to the Supreme Being, should withhold from us such a declaration. I say that Ido care for the Constitution and tor law and for liberty, and that I ain for preserving them •all, and the country and the Union also, for it is the Constitution and liberty that make the Union worth preserving. Without them a Union forced by arbitrary power, a Union such as is brought about by the heel of despotism is not the Union I ara strug gling for. It is not the Union that the brave soldiers of the republic are fighting for—, They go forth to battle for the purpose of maintaining the Constitution under which they themselves have enjoyed frpedom, and handing it down for the protection of their posterity. It is for this we are fighting, and not simply to try a man by court martial or a military commission, I have no disposition to prolong the de bate. Ido not desire the bill to be lost, but I have felt it due to myself to say this much after the remarks made by the Senator from California. Our opponents used to claim with admirable persistency that their party mon opolized all the intelligence and all the decen cy, Mr. Lincoln is the compendium ot "nil the intelligence," and Andy Johnson of "all the decency." A REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR ON ANDY JOHN SON.—Gov, Buckingham, of Connecticut; has issued a proclamation for a fast day, in which he refers to the crying sins of the times, among them cnumeratiug the "incoherence" of Andy Johnsort : "The oath of fidelity to the Constitution and the high official duty, has recently been taken with a stammering tongue, in the pres once of, and to the reproach of the American people."
