| HARVEY Sit KLER, Editor. TitJNKHANNOCK, PA. Wednesday. 3lay 29, 1867. LATEST FROM MEXICO. —The papers of yesterday publish official dcspaches of the capture by the Liberals, ofQucretaro, Mex ico, on the 15th inst. The Emperor, Max imilian, and several prominent Imperialist officers are prisoners of war. It is thought that the temper of the victor is such, that the prisoners will be executed. The Fourth of July. As intimated last week we are now pre pared to speak more definitely in Tegard to the laying of the CornerStone of the Pres byterian church now in process of erec tion in this Borough. The Corner Stone will be laid with Ma sonic ceremonies, an address suitable to the solemnities of the occasion, will be de livered by a distinguished speaker, and the Tunkhannock Brass Band have kindly consented to afford their aid to the cere monies, and thus to enchance the pleasure and satisfaction of all who attend, Immediately after these services are con cluded, a dinner will be served ; and in the evening ice cream and straw-berries will be furnished. The ceremonies on this occasion will be such as have never yet been witnessed in thi9 country, and the members of the Ma sonic Fraternity in adjoining Lodges, and Ladies and Gentlemen genrally are invited to attend. The procoeds of the celebration will be applied to iurnishing the new Church. NEW BRIDGE The Bridge Meeting, held at the Court, House, Saturday the 2.5 th, although but poorly attended, was certainly a very en couraging one to all who feel the necessity of a bridge at this place. Messrs. Stark, Miller and Day,the owners of the-piers, abutments, aud what remains of the old bridge, made to the friends of a new bridge, the offer of their franchise, toll house, piers, abutments, and what remains of the superstructure —the pre Sen t value of which is estimated at from *22 to $24000 at *6.000 ; which amount, is to be treated as so much paid up stock in the new com pany about to be organized. This very liber al proposition was cheerfully occupied bv those present, and stock to the amount of upwards of S,BOOO has already been 6ub scribed. • With so much already done towards a bridge, the value of which is so great, compared to its costs, and with the pros pective increased travel of our County, and trade of ou* town, we feel warranted in the prediction that stock taken under the new arrangement, will pay a better in terest than any other legitimate invest ment, By the most liheral estimates, the cost of a permanent, double track bridge, com plete in every particular*, will not exceed $•24,000. This added to SO,OO0 —cost of tbe old bridge—would make the entire cost $30,000. Dui t rng' t thc.last year or two before its destruction, the net receipts from the old bridge, was about $3,000. With the in crease of travel and trade which must in evitably result from the completion of the "Rail Road, along the line of the river, these tolls will in a short time, certainly be in. creased in amount, 50 per cent. It would be no wild conjecture to presume that they would be doubled. With the cost of the bridge at $30,000, with even the old rate of receipts, the stock would pay ten per cent, ou the cost. But, the incidental advantages resulting from the facilities for crossing at this point, the increased Value of real estate on both sides of the river, and the largely increased trade that would be brought to our town, outweighs all of those "ahent per shent" considerations. The public necessities, the growing in terests and trade of the connty, demand a new bridge at this place. There never was a more favorable time for its building than the present. Monied men were nev er offered a more certain and paying in vestment. There is no good reason why at the beginning of the new year, or at the the time of the completion of our Rail Road, the bridge, too, should not be fin ished and fit for crossing. The people, everywhere, and especially ttoose most directly interested in it, have now an opportunity to secure this most desirable improvement. It is to be hoped that enough stock for. the purpose will be subscribed without de lay.

GREELEY MEANS TO DO, AC. AC. BY THESE PRESENTS, GREETING •' To Messrs. George W, Blunt, John A; Kennedy, John 0. Stone, Stephen Hy att, and thirty others, members of the Union League Club. GENTLEMEN : I was favored, on the 16th inst., by an official note from onr ever-cour teous President, John Jay, notifying me that a requisition had been presented to him for "a special meeting of the club at an early day for the purpose of taking into consideration the conduct of Horace Gree ley, a member of the Club, who has be come a bondsman for Jefferson Davis, late chief officer of the rebel government."— Mr. Jay continues : "As I have reason to believe that the signers, or some of them, disapprove of the conduct which they propose the Club shall consider, it is clearly one, both to the Club and to yoursslf, that yon should have the opportunity of being heard on the subject; I beg, therefore, to ask on what evening it will be convenient for you that I call the meeting," Ac., A. MR GREELEY WANT 3 NO TIME FOR RE FLECTION. In my prompt reply, I requested the President to give you time tor reflection but assured him that I wanted none ; since 1 should not attend the meeting, nor ask anv friend to do so, and should make no defence, nor offer aught in the way of self vindication. lam sure my friends in the Club will not construe this as implying dis respect; but it is not my habit to take part in any discussions which may arise among other gentlemen as to my fitness to enjoy their society. That, is their affair altogether, and to them I leave it. HE REFERS TO HIS RECORD, The single point whereon I have any occasion or wish to address you is your virtual irrplication that there is something novel, unexpected, astounding, in my con duct in the matter suggested by them as the basis of their action. I choose not to rest under this assumption, but to prove that you, being persons of ordinary intel ligence, must know better, On this point, 1 cite you to a scrutiny of the record. The surrender cf General Lee was made known in this city at 11 p. r. of Sunday, April 9, 186-3, and fitly announc ed in the Tribune of next morning printed in these columns, a letter entitled "Mag nanimity in Triumph," wherein I said : We hear men say: "Yes, forive the great mas? of those who have been misled into rebellion, but punish the leaders as they deserve" But who can accurately draw the lino between leaders and followers in the premises 1 By what test shall they be discriminated 7 * * # Where is your touchstone ot leadership I We know of none. jyXor can we agree with those win would punish the original plotters of secession, yet spare their ultimate and scarcely willing comerts. On the contrary, while we world revive or inflame resent ment against none of them, we feel far less antipa thy to the original upholders of "the resolutions of '98," to the disciples of Calhoun and AlcDufTu, to the Xullifiers of 1862. and the "Sta'e-flight's men of 1850—than to the John Bells, Humphrey Mar shall*, and Alex 11. 11. Stuarts, who were schooled in the national faith, and who, in becotniug disun ionists and rebels trampled on the professions of a file-time, and spurred the logic wherewith they bad so often unanswerably demonstrated that seces sion was treason. * * * We consider Jefferson Davis this day a ICES calculated traitor than John Bell- But wo cuinot beliero it wise or well to take the life ol any man who sbaLl have submitted io the national nu:hority The execution of even one such wouM be felt as a petsonai signui by one who had ever aided tbe rebel cause. Each would say to himself, 'T fim as eulpablo as he ; we differ only in that lam detmcd of comparatively little conse quence." A single confederate led out to execu tion would be evermore eiishrir.ed in a million hearts as a ronspicuous hero and a ninrtyr. Wc cannot realize that it would be wholesome or safe— we arc Fure it would not be magnanimous—to gire the overpowered disloyaltj- of the South such a shrine. Would the throne of the House of Hanover stand more firmly had Charles Edward been caught and executed after Culloden 1 Is Austrian domina tion in UuDgary more stable to-day for the bang ing of Nugy Sander and his twelve compatriots after the surrender of Vilagos 1 We plead against passions certain to be at this moment fierce and insolvent : but on our side are tbe Ages and the voice of History . Wo plead for a restoration ef the Union, against a policy which would afford a momentary gratification at the cost of years of perilous hate andjbitterness. * * * Those who invoke military execution for the van quished, or even for their leaders, we suspect will not generally be found among the few who have long been exjiosed to unjust odium as haters of the ?oulh because they anhored slavery. And, as to the long-oppressdd and degraded blacks—so lately the slaves, destined still to bo the neighbors, anil (wo trust) at no distant day, the fellow-citizens ol the Southern whites—wo are sure that their voice, could it bo authentiealfy uttered, would ring out decidedly, sonorously on the side of clemency, of humanity. On the next day, I had some more in this spirit, and on the 13th, an elaborate leader entitled "Peace—Punishment," in the conrse of which I said : The New York times, doing injustice to its own sagacity in a characteristic attempt to sail between wind .and water, says: "Let rs hang Jeff. Davis and spare the rest " * * * We do not concur in the advice. Davis did not devise nor instigate the rebellion ; on the contrary, he was one cf the latest and most reluctant cf the notables of the cot ton States to renounce definitively the Union ilia prominence is purely official and representative ; the only reason for hanging him is that you therein condemn and stigmatize more person*, than in hang ing any one elac. There is not an ex-rebel in the world—no matter how penitent—who will not have unpleasant sensations about the neck on the day when the confederate President is to be'hung. And to what good end 1 We insist that this matter must not be regarded in any narrow aspect. *We are most anxious to se cure the assent of the South to emancipation ; not that assent which the condemned gives to being hung when he .shake hands with bis jailor and thanks him for past acts of kindness ; but that h'-arty assent which can only be worn by magnan imity. Perhaps the rebels, as a body, would have given, even one year ago, as large and as hearty a rote for hanging the writer of this article as any other man living; hence, it more especially seems to him important to prove that the civilization based on free labor is of a higher and hnmaner type than thatiiased on slavery. We cannot realize that the gratification to enure to our friends from the hanging o! any one man, or fifty men, should be al lowed to outweigh this consideration. On the following day I wrote again: * * * Ws entreat the President promptly to d* and dare in the cause of magnanimity The Southern mind is now open to kindness, and may be magnetically affected by generosity. Let assurance at once be given that there is to be a general ani mosity and no general confiscation. This is none the less the dictate of wisdom because it is also the dietat* of mercy. What we ask, does the President say in effect: "Slavery hating, through rebellion committed suicide, let the North and the South unite to bury the carcass, aad then clasp hands aoross the grave. HIS SUBSEQUENT RECEPTION BT THE LOTAL LEAGUERS. The evening of that day witnessed that most appalling calamity, the murder of President Lincoln, winch seemed in a in stant to curdle all the milk of human kind ness in twenty millions of American breasts. At once, insidious efforts were set on foot to turn the fory thus engendered against me, because of of my pertinacious advoca cy of mercy to the vanquished. Chancing to enter the club-house the next (Saturday) evening, I received a full broadside of your scowls, ere we listened to to a clerical ha rangue intended to prove that Mr. Lincoln had been providentially removed because of his notorious leanings toward clemen.cy, in oider to make way for a successor who would give the rebels a full measure of stern justice. I was soon made to compre hend that I had no sympathizers—or none who dared seem such—in yeur crowded assemblage, THE CLUB REFUSES TO RECEIVE BIS POR TRAIT. And some maladroit admirer having, a few days afterward, made the club a pres of my portrait, its bare reception was re sisted in a speech from the chair by your president—a speech whose vigorous invective was justified solely by uiy plead ings for lenity to the rebels. HIS OPINION OF MINOR RADICAL EDITORS. At once a concerted howl of denuncia tion and rage was sent up from every side against me by the little creatures whom God, for some inscrutable purpose, permits to edit a majority of our minor journals ; echoed by a yell of "Stop my paper!" from thousands of imperfectly instructed readers of the Tribune. One impudent puppy wrote me to answer categorically whether I was or was not in favor of hanging Jeff. Davis, adding that I must stop his paper if I were not! THE VULGAR 4 *CONCEPTION OF THE EDITORIAL VOCATION. Scores volunteered assurances that I was defying public opinion—that most of my readers were against me—as if I eould be induced to write what they wished said rather than what they needed to be told, — I never before realized so vividly the base ness of the editorial vocation according to the vulgar conception of it. The din raised about my ears now is nothing to that I then endured and despised. lam humilia ted by the reflection that it is (or was) in the power of such insects to annoy me,even by pretending to discover with surprise something that I have for years been pub licly, emphatically proclaiming. HOW HE LOST THE SENATORSHIP. Upon the Republicans having, by des perate effort, handsomely carried our State against a formidable-looking combination of recent and venomous apostates with our natural adversaries, a crv arose from sev eral quarters that I ought to bo chosen United States Senator. At once,kind, dis creet friends swarmed about me, whisper ing "Only keep still about Universal Am nesty, and your election is certain. Just be quiet a few weeks, and yon can say what ynu please thereafter. You have no occasion to speak now," I slept on the well-meant suggestion, and deliberately concluded that 1 eould not, injustice to my self, defer to it. I could not purchase office bv even passive, negative dissimution.— No man should be enabled to say to me, in truth, "If 1 had suppose! you would per- in your rejected, condemned Am nesty hol>b)\ I would not have given you my vote." So I w rote and published, on the ?7th of that month, my manifesto en titled "The True Basis of Reconstruction," wherein, repelling the idea that I proposed a dicker with the ex rebels, I explicitly said : ' v :i,I am for universal amnesty—so far as inynunity from fear of jiunishineut or confiscation is concerned •—even though impartial suffrage should, for the present, he defeated. I nin think if desirable that Jefferson Davis should bo arranged and tried for treason ; and it still seems to me that this might properly have been done many months ago. But it was not done then ; and now 1 believe it would result in far more c/il than good. It worrld re kindle passions that hare nearly burned out or been hnshed to sleep ; it would fearfully convulse and agitate the South ; it would arrest tho progress of reconciliation and kindly feeling there, it would cost a large sum directly and a fai larger sum indi rectly : at-I—unless the jury were scandalously packed—it would result in a nen-sgreement or no verdict. I can imagine no good end to be subserved by such a trial ; and—holding Davis neither bet ter nor worso than several others—weuld have him treated as they are. HE CALLS G- G. BLUNT, PROSPER M. WET MORE, JOHN A. KEnNEDY AND "THIRTY OTHERS," NARROW MINDED BLOCK BEADS.'' Gentlemen, I shall not attend your meeting this evening. I have an engage ment out of town, and shall keep it. Ido not recognize you as capable of judging or even fullv apprehending rte. Yon evident ly regard me as a weak Fontiraentalit misled by a maudlin philosophy. I arraign you as narrow-minded blockheads, who would like to be useful to a great and good cause, but don't know how. Your attempt to base a great, enduring party on the hate and wrath nccessarially engendered 'by a bloody civil war, is as though you should plant a colony on an icebnrg which had somehow drifted into a tropical ocean, I tell you here that, out of a life earnestly devot?d to the good of human kind, yonr children will select my going to Richmond and signing that bail-bond as the wisest act. and will feel that it did more for free dom and humanity f than all of you were competent to do, though you bad lived to the age of Methuselah. COME ON ! THE WHOLE OF YOl'l All I care for is. that you make this a square, sland-up fight and record your judg ment yeas and nays. I care not how few vote with ine, nor how many vote against me ; for I Know that the latter will repent it in dust and ashes before three years hare passed. Understand, once for all, that I dare you and defv you, and that I propose to fight it out on the line that I have held from the day of Lee's surrender. So long as any man was seeking to overthrow our government, he was my enemy ; from the hour in which he laid down his- arms, he was formerly erring countryman. So long as any is at hearbopposed to the nations 1 unity, the federal authority,or to that asser tion of the equal rights of all men which has become practically identified with loyal ty and nationality, I shall do my best to de prive him of power ; but,whenever he ceas es to do thus, I demand his restoration to all the priveleges of American citizenship. MR. OREELET'S FUTURE PLATFORM. 1 give jou fair notice that I shall urge the reenfranchisement of those now pro scribed for rebellion so soon as I shall feel confident that this eourse is consistent with the freedom ot the blacks and the unitj of the republic, and that I shall demand a re call of all now in exile only for participa ting in the rebellion, whenever the country shall have been so thoroughly pacified that its safety will not thereby be endangered. And so, gentlemen, hoping that you wilL henceforth comprehend me somewhat bet ter than you have done, 1 remain. Yours, HOKACE GREKLET. NEW-YORK, May 23, 1867. SOMETHING ABOUT NATIONAL BANKS.— Various questions of great interest to shareholders in National Banks are at the present Mine under discussion,and we have received many inquiries for information upon certain points. And first, as to the liabilities ot stockholders in national bank ing institutions, we reply that section 12th of the bank act declares that shareholders are liable to the extent of the amount of their stock, at par value thereof, in addi tion to the amount invested in such shares. A national hank may reduce its crpital by a vote of shareholders owning two-thirds of its capital stock. A reduction cannot, of course, be made to a point below fifty thousand dollars in capital of banks in places containing not over six thousand in habitants, nor to less than two hundred thousand dollars in capital of banks loca ted in cities whose population exceeds fifty thousand, and uo chaDge whatever can be made without the approval of the Comptroller of the Currency. Our national banks are constantly called upon to redeem and retire worn and mu tillatcd notes. The b<ak act provides for the replacing of these by new issues, National batik charters run twenty years, but they can be given up at any time by a vote of the shareholders. * Na tional banks mry receive from the Comp troller circulating notes to the amount of ninety per cent, of the bonds deposited with the Comptroller, and not exceeding capital paid in.— Peterson's Bank Xote List. Model Temperance Missionary. Mr. AZ. Bates, v. ho was brought be fore the Public Court, at Chicago, a few days since, charged with having drugged and robbed some one, thus addresssd the magistrate in his defence : At this moment, sir, you may despise me but before I finish you will pity me.— I am a Christian —one of the Lord's gtier rillos. They fight for the Christian faith on their own hook, lam also a mission ary. I try to make people sigh the tem perence pledge. I don't belong to the regular society for that purpose. Our ways of doing the thing differ. Mine is the best. I don't have to beg for money as they do. My system is self-supporting. I often say jokingly of myself and fam ily that we are Bates for intemperate peo ple, The joke is original with me, and I don't want any of the reporters to pass it off* as their own. The way I convert people to the temper ence cause is this : When I see a man about to drink I drug the liquor. When he sleeps, I take all the money and valua bles he has. I spoil his clothes, and some times beat liira. Then I put him in the gutter, wheie a policeman can find him. But first I fill liis pockets full of tracts showing the evils of intemperance. What is the result ? That man is brought here and. fined $5 for drunkenness lie finds all his money gone, and his; clothes spoiled. Thus does he see and feel the effects of intemperance. It is better than a thousand tracts. Then he reads a few of the tracts in his pocket, and they complete the good work, lie goes and signs the pledge. I have thus saved that man from a drunkard's grave. All honor to me. The money and valuables which I get from him are enough to support me until I find another man to convert. I know that the world may mistake my motives, but you, Judge, will not. You will say at once: • ' Let the missionary go. He is one among many." And so I am. Once I converted an aunt of mine in this way. It costlier $250 but she does not drink any more. It is sweet to me to think how many souls 1 have saved, and how much it cost them to be saved. Mr. Bates was required to appear be fore the Recorder's Court. Pireuts aud Children. There is nothing better, nothing safer, nothing so sure of bringing forth the right fruit in the end, than truth. Tell your child the truth. Tell him that obedience requires unpaid sacrifices. Tell him that he need not expect that a purse of gold will drop into his baud the moment he de nies himself of a coveted pleasure. Tell him that the path of duty is often terribly hard, and seldom leads to an oil well, or a seat in Congress, or to a brown stone front house Tell him that virtue sometimes brings thorns, enemies, neglect. But tell him that it is virtue nevertheless; tie bright est, the noblest, and the best of gifts, and whatever comes of goodness it is the one thing desirable, itself above all price.— Make him feel that obedience is pleasure, that goodnesk is delight, that love is alto gether lovely, and he will not expect to be paid for the smallest service and be tempt ed to withhold a kindness when he is not sure of a reward. Parents must cease ap pealing to and the averice of their children if they would have them any thing but selfish and sensual. The great impeacher, Ashley, is having daily interviews in the Washington jail with the perjurer Conover who have not been removed to a penitentiary. The jailor should send for Holt and Stanton and then lock the whole of them up together They are so near alike in crime that they are entitled to the same rooms, at least, if not to the same pains and penalties. Greeley on Reconstruction, The following extract from the Speech of Horace Greely, on Reconstruction, de livered at Richmond, Va., May 4th, 18G7, is certainly refreshing when compared with the ranting of Sumner, Stevens, Kel ley & Co., and proves that the success of the Democratic party is having a whole some effect in tempering Radicalism, aud that the bubble of negro equality, will be the rock on which their party must even tually split. 'then as to the question of Confiscation, what is to be said ? What is the truth about Confiscation ? I have been told, since I came here, that the colored people of this city and the State were refusing to buy for themselves homes, because they were imbued with the belief that Con gress would very soon confiscate and dis tribute the lands of the Rebels of this Btate, and give each of them a share. If this be so, I beg you to believe that you are more likely to earn a home than to get one by any form of confiscation. I do not approve of appeals to any par ticular class, and I make no claim to be a special friend of the colored people : but this I say, friends and countrymen, since I have been here I have been more than ever belpre impressed with the exceeding cheapness of Virginia lands, I believe there are lands selling to-day near this city at ten dollars per acre which will be worth in a tew years ten times that price ; and I say to all, If you can buy lands in Virginia and pay for them, buy them ; for they are certain to be dearer in the early future, I amconfident buying lands is the cheapest way of getting them. I am confident that buying these lands is the cheapest possible mode of securing a homestead. Carlyle says that the great mistake ot Bob Roy was his failure to rea lize that he oould obtain his beef cheaper in the grass market cf Glasgow than by harrying the lowlands ; and he will re peat that imstake who fails to secure a farm by purchase to day in Virginia be cause lie hopes to obtain any under some future act of confiscation. I urge you* poor men of Virginia, whether white or black, to secure yourselves homes of your own forthwith. If you can buy them here, do so, before the coming influx of im igration shall have rendered lands too dear. If not, strike off to the Public lands, South, North and West, and hew out for yourselves homes as ray ancestors did in New Hampshire, and become laud owners, all of you, so soon as you may. — Own something which you can call a home. It will give yon a deeper feeling of independence and of self-respect, and do not wait to obtain a home by confiscation. [Applause.] A BRILLIANT SXD PATRIOTIC SCHEME.- The project lately started by a number of prominent and patriotic gentleman to erect or. the battle-field of Gettysburg a perma nent borne for crippled Union soldiers of the rebellion, is destined to prove a complete success The scheme, which is a very feasible one, and which will be carried out strictly and faithfully, is sim ply this :-Althongh the erection of a home for invalid soldiers meets with the cordial approbation of every one, the State Legis lature did not feel itself in a position to make the necessary appropriation to estab lish such an institution, but in lieu thereof passed a bill on the Gth of March last, granting power to the corporators named therein to raise the required amount]? by means of a grand gift distribution. It becoming known that certain parties in New York had, during the Rebellion, purchased a large number of diamonds and precious stones, measures were taken to se cure tliem, and certain parties advanced the money for their purchase. Certificates valued at five dollars each will be issued and the holder will not only contribute to a national and commendable enterprise, but will also have a direct interest in the distri bution of these magnificent jewels. The princely gifts are now on exhibiion at No. 1126 Chesntt street, and daily viewed by hundreds of our citizens. The management of the great enterprise has been confided to able and experienced hands, and there is not the slightest doubt that the entire scheme will be consumated to the perfect satisfaction of everybody in terested. The site selected for the erection of the Home, and which consists of the piece of ground used as General Meade's headquarters during the battle of Gettys burg, has already been burchajed' and it now only remains for our citizens to come forward en ?nas?e and purchase shares for the grand distribution, to insure a comfort able home for invalid soldiers, where they will be cared for at no cost to themselves. The project has met with some opposi tion in certain quarters where its character and provisions have not been thoroughly understood ; but the projectors hold them selves responsible for the faithful perform ance of everything they guarantee in the published prospectus. The sale of certificates lias already com menced, and the indications are that the 800,000 subscribers required to complete the first distribution will be obtained in a very short time. As the people throughout the country went with great readiness into the Crossby Opera House speculation, a scheme solely for personal aggrandizement, still greater inducements are presented to subscribe to the Gettysburg Asylum, the success of which will secure a happy home for thousands of crippled soldiers.— Phila• adelphia Evening Telegraph, A CLEAR HEADED MAW. —An editor in Alabama, having readjfan article in Hall's Journal of Health advising that "husband and wife should sleep in seperate rooms, says Dr. Hall can sleep when and where be choses, but, for himself, he intends to sleep where he can defend his wife against the rats and all other nocturnal foes as long as he haa got one to defend.
