Andrew Johnson is true to the in terests of the Conservative men of th" country. His second annual message to Congress, which we lay before our readers on the first page, proves that he will take no step backward from the position which he assumed in his first annual message. On the other hand, he goes much further in this message than in the former, byway of arguing and explaining his position. And what could be more candid, dignified, lucid and convincing, than the argument which he makes in favor of represen tation in Congress for the ten excluded {States? We put it to any fair-minded man, no matter what may be his po litieal proclivities, is not the President's logic sound ? It cannot bo denied that the style of the message indicates cul tivated taste, and that iis whole tenor reflects credit upon its author. Con trast it with the spiteful and malignant legislation of Congress, and in what favorable light it places the President! Not a line of bitterness toward Con gress, not the least trace of acrimony toward those who have traduced and hunted him down, is to IK* found in its whole length, but from beginning to end a firm reliance upon good motives and a righteous cause as the ultimate vindication of the President's course, is the characteristic of this truly admi rable state paper. Mr. Johnson has planted himself upon the rock of the (institution, and he will stand there n sunshine and in storm. The angry billows of fanaticism will dash around him in vain. Secure uuon this eternal basis of liberty, he will stand untouch ed until he shall see the storm abate, and the troubled waters quietly roll at his feet beneath the sunshine of a perfect peace. RIXG IT IX THEIR EARS. "Taxation without Representation is Tyranny ! " Ring it in the ears of Congress! Let the people hear it! Let the wide world know how ten sov ereign States are disfranchised! Head your musty old copies of the Declara tion of i ndependence over again ! Let the State House bell be rung once more, and let another John Hancock pro claim, "Taxation without Representa tion is Tyranny!" Speak it, write it, print it, engrave it, sing it, and shout it, throughout all the land, till the utmost bounds of civilization shall give back the echo, "Taxation without Represen tation is Tyranny!" God of justice! Shall Thad. Stevens fare better than Lord North? Shall Rout well be might ier than George the Third ? Ten States, eight millions of people, are taxed without their consent. They are voiceless in the choice of .their ru lers, in the making of their laws. They are groaning under the Tyranny of "Taxation without Representation." Now, where is the miscreant slave who will dare to say that this wrong shall not be redressed ? TilE Delaware Republican, edited by , Y.S.Walter, Esq., opposes the elec tion of Gov. Curtin as U. S. Senator. The Republican intimatesthat the Gov ernor cannot l>e trusted on the issues of the day. You are right there, Mr. Walter. He has deceived both parties. It is not in his nature to be true to any body. We Democrats have fully prov ed that fact. XEV YORK CITY will do. The other day her Democracy elected a Comptrol ler by 2,000 majority over the Mongrel candidate, an independent Democratic candidate taking 20,000 votes from the regular nominee, and 2.">,000 Demo crats not voting. Mongrelisni in the Metropolis, is a mere toy for Demo crats to play with. JACOB GRAFT, a very highly re spected citizen of Somerset, died a few days ago, in the ninety-eighth year of his age. Mr. G raft vote i for George Wash ington, and for every Democratic can didate for the Presidency from Jeffer son to MVP-Man.

Mr. Walter, proprie tor of the London Times, is now in this country, and one day last week was given a grand entertainment at Wash ington by John W. Forney. This same Mr. Walter was one of the most thor ough and active opponents of the Fed eral government in its efforts to put down the rebellion, and his paper, The Timed, became notorious as the organ of British blockade-runners and Con federates domiciled abroad. Now he is feted and lionized by the "loyal" Chevalier Forney, and the Mongrel M. C.'s rush forward to tipple cham pagne and crack jokes with this lately despised associate and abettor of "'reb els" and "traitors." Birdsof a feather will flock together, and fellow Disun ionists, doubtless, find pleasure in each | other's society. COL. JAMES P. BAKU, of the Pitts burg Pod, has associated with him, in the publication of that journal, Messrs. Jos. S. Lare, Win. Schoyer and E. A. Myers, and hereafter the paper will be conducted under the firm name of Jas. P. Burr & Co. The Pout did yeoman! service in the iate campaign, andweare glad to note the promise of the pub- j lishers that its usefulness is to be still j further extended. The Democracy of ! Western Pennsylvania need a spirited and enterprising newspaper organ, and there is plenty of ability in the Post establishment to make just such a pa- 1 per. We wish the new firm abundant j success, not only for their own sakes, but for the sake of the Democrats who look to it as exponent and leader. IT is not for want of votes that the Democracy of the North have so mea gre representation in Congress. It is owing to the gerrymandering of the Congressional districts, by the Mongrel legislatures. If the people of the North were represented according to the vote, there would be about 8(t Dem ocrats and about 100 Mongrels in the next Congre s. Any arithmetician; can cipher this out for himself. For instance, as 4,100,000 (the whole vote)! is to 180 (th" whole number of Con-; gressmen) so is 2,000,000 (the whole Democratic vote of the North) to the numberof Congressmen to which the; Democrats are entitled. A COKRKSPOXDEXT of the New York World says that the present Congress! has no intention of doing anything definite in regard to the excluded States j or the President. The members intend to turn their attention particularly and solely to stealing, whilst they keep up their old outcry against the South in ordertodivertattention from theirown • rascality. They have played the same game before, and, of course, intend to play it again. HERE is the predicament in which j the Mongrel leaders in Congress find : themselves : They cannot retain power ; with the ten excluded States restored j to their places in the Union, and they cannot continue the exclusion of those States without violating the Constitu tion and thus incurring the displeasure of the people. Confined between the horns of this dihmma, is it any won der that they rage and roar like so many bulls of Bashan ? PROSCRIPTIONS. When President Johnson removed some of the brawling disunionists who used the patronage of the Administra te create opposition to its policy, the act was pronounced prescriptive and tyrannical. No sooner, however, does Congress meet, than the Senate decapi tates Messrs. Cowan, Dixon, and Poo little, taking from each the chairman ship of the committee held by him during the former session. Pray, by what name shall this petty vengeance be called? If it be not proscription, what is it ? RAP them over tin knuckles! Some of our Democratic exchanges are pub lishing prospectuses of Abolition peri odicals andare receiving reproofs there for from their editorial brethren. We are glad to see that the Democratic press is waking up to the importance of lighting the insidious literature of New England. Yankeeism is venal and if you but strike at its pockets, it i will come down on its marrow bones. THE llcrahl is the title of a new pa per just started at Columbia, by Geo, Young and W, 11. Grier.

EHI TO u'The assembling of Congress on Monday last, was signali- zed l>y an immediate attack upon the Constitutional prerogatives of the Pres ident, by the Mongrel majority in the lower Scarcely had the sound of the speaker's gavel ceased, as the House was called to order, when a bill was introduced, and rushed through \ under party pressure, repealing that part of the act of 1862 which authori zes the President to pardon persons en ! gaged in the rebellion. This course of ! action had been determined upon by j the Mongrel caucus on Saturday eve ning previous, and was intended to frighten the Southern States into the ratification of the infamous Amend ment passed at the last session. The Senate, however, refused, by a close vote, to take up the bill, though Chan | dler, of Michigan, tried his best to bul ; ly Senators into following the hasty I example of the House. The bill was 5 referred to the Committee on the Judi ciary, where I predict it will slumher awhile, as the Mongrels fear that in j the event of of its passage, tHe Presi dent will, under the power confer, ed : upon him by the Constitution, issue a proclamation of general amnesty, which would hurt them infinitely more than the special pardons which he has gran t j ed, or may issue. Thus' does theCon j stitution protect itself and those who i stand by it. i Gen. Rousseau is back again in his seat. You will remember that he was censured, last session, for caning that reverend slanderer, Grinnell, of lowa, and that he resigned in consequence, i lis constituents returned him by an overwhelming vote, which means, if Grinnell lies again, Rousseau is to give him another ratan-ing. 1 notice, also, the presence of theshameless Raymond, whose Janus-face looks in two differ ent directions at the same time. lie is the fe.low who read the platform of the Philadelphia National Union Con vention held in August last. You re meinber that he said in that address that if the Southerners accepted thede grading conditions which were sought to be imposed upon them by the Rad icals, they would be unworthy citizens of a free country. Such was the sub stance of the remarks, if not the exact language, used by this delectable Con servative. Well, 110 sooner had .Maine and Vermont voted, than Raymond turned tail upon the National Union Convention, and made a straight eoat tail for the camp of the .Mongrel Rad ical.-. lUs paper, the N. Y. Tinws, came out in favor of the Amendment and threatened the Southern people that if they didn't accept the "degrading con ditions" offered them in that Amend ment, they would fare worse. He al so did his best to defeat .Mr. Ciymer in your State, and Mayor Hoffman, in New York. Notwithstanding his ser vices to the Mongrels he was kicked oct of the "Republican National Com mittee," anil tabooed generally by the leaders of the party to which he pro fessed to belong. The other night he ventured to poke his nose into tiie Mon grel Caucus, when old Stevens discov ered his presence, and the Mongrels be gan at once to consider among them- selves the propriety of invjting him to leave. A resolution to tluvt effect was offered, which received some 2"> votes, hut was 10.-W Down sat Raymond, as big a dogas any in the kennel and as ready to growl sit the Southern people because they will not accept "degrading conditions" as the men with whom he affeets to disagree. What an infernal hound he is! Tlie 1 'resident's message has just been I announced, and OldThad. doesn't care about hearing it. He has moved to postpone its reading, hut the House feels disposed to listen to it. It is re ceived with attention and I can see a bitter smile on the countenance of that old knave Bout well, of Massachusetts. He is one of the miserable tricksters Avho in the Peace Convention of 1801 1 refused to listen to any compromise, and who would have nothing but war. lie said then, to some of the Southern representatives in that Convention, "We will either march our armies to the Gulf of Mexico, or you will march yours to Canada." This pestilent fel low means more war, more blood, and what is the all in all to him and his section, more plunder. The firmness of the President makes him writhe in his seat, and the dignified, yet pointed manner in which the message puts the position of the Executive upon the question of Southern representation, makes him very uneasy. lie has had it in his mind to draw up articles of impeachment against the President. But he is a coward and fears to meet a man of such mettle as is exhibited in the document which is just being read. The temper of the message has given great satisfaction to moderate men of all parties. Even "Republicans" de clare that if Congress renews the quar rel with the President, 011 any thing uttered in this message, they will go with him and against Stevens and his faction. It is seen and felt here, that the firmness and dignity of the mes sage have strengthened the Conserva tiveeause greatly. Thanks to Andrew Johnson ! lie will yet he sustained,as he would be to-day, could every Amer ican have a voice in the government. There will, beyond all doubt, be an effort made by the ultra men in Con gress, to destroy the power of the Pre sident. They want to insure the suc cess of their party in the next Presi dential election, and they are willing and ready to do anything to secure that end. They are already beginning to talk about legislating so as to exclude the ten Southern States not represent ed in Congress, from the Electoral Col lege. Well, let them undertake that, and they'll have somebody else than "grey-backs" to whip! As to impeach ment, they would like to try it, but they are afraid lest the sympathies of the people might run in the wrong di rection. Their plan will evidently be to get up some kind of a smelling com mittee, which will take one side of ail the evidence that perjurers like Ilolt's man Conover, and cattle of that de scription (ran be procured to give against the President, and then print a report at the expense of the people, and scatter it broadcast as an election eering document. Now, mark my word, if this isn't all their impeach ment business will afnount to. But smelling committees are about played out. People will not be humbugged by one side of a story when they can't get to see the other side. I don't be liey; that they will get much of their ultra work through the Senate. That body appears to be a little squeamish and doesn't swallow the dose prepared in the House without some signs of dis gust. 1 look for moderation in the Senate, but there is 110 telling to what extent the majority of that body may be driven by tiie party lash. I miss greatly the pleasant counte nance of your former representative, Hon. A. 11. Coffroth. I hear that "Aleck" is Assessor of Internal Rev enue for his old district. I hope he will not forget the fact that he needs to be confirmed before he is safe in his new office. I mention this only in the hope that, if he sees it, he may be re minded that he ought to be here to look after his interests. The fact is, Aleck, your friends here want to see you. Should anything remarkable trans pire here between this and next Satur day, I will telegraph you. PRY. I.KTTKU I'KOn I .V I.K TOBY. Is the Shapow of tiie MorvTAif, ) December 10, 1860. ) DEAR EDITOR:—U. T. never was in such trouble as now threatens him on every side, lie is blamed, 011 the one hand, for writing those petty slander ous "Pilgrim" letters to the Inquirer, and on the other he is charged with trying to curry favor with those whom he formerly denounced as "drunkards," "gamblers," &c. Now, isn't this too bad? Uncle Toby to be considered a poor miserable defamer of those who have been his warm and consistent friends, Uncle Toby to be pronunced so mean as to drag his private griev ances into the public prints, as "Pil grim" has done in regard to the school teacher business! Does anyone who knows the undersigned, believe, for a moment, that if he had a son who was refused the charge of a country school, that he would fly into the newspapers and blazon that son's ill luck to the world? Not a bit of it. U. T. is no such fool as that. He would expect people to corne to the natural conclu sion that his son was considered unfit to leach, and for the son's sake he would keep as quiet about it as possible. A gain, would U. T. abuse a gallant and honorable soldier, simply because he didn't happen to vote the ticket sup ported by U. T. ? Or, would your old friend, riding in his ear of progress, step out of his pleasant carriage, to get into the company of the "drunkards" and "gamblers" whom he was wont so fiercely to denounce ? No, 110 ! These

things are not at all consistent with the character of Uncle Toby. It will not be taken as vanity in me, if 1 say that Uncle Toby's profession is to speak "peace, good will toward men," that ho is a minister of the meek and low ly Nazarene who counseled us that when smitten on one cheek, wo should turn the other also to him that smote, and that he is a teacher of that sacred Word which tells us, "Blessed are the peacemaker.-, for they shall see God." How, then, could Uncle Toby be the author of the embittered seribblingsof "Pilgrim?" llow could he draggle his sacerdotal robes in the muck of slander, and stain his preacher's vest ment with the "gall of bitterness?" llow could he, by miserable, sneaking innuendo, assail private citizens who have been his friends, or sit in a village post office or country store, eaves-drop per-like, to catch the private conversa tion of his neighbors so that ho may report it for publication in the news- I papers? A vaunt! would you insult; me beyond endurance, then charge me | with so vile an act as any of these!; Then, that I, Uncle Toby, should be blamed with dabbling in politics, I j who have always opposed interference ; in political matters by ministers of the j Gospel! Now, isn't such misrepresen- j fation of my position too outrageously j bad? If any body despises a political ! preacher, it is myself. He is the nas tiest, foulest-mouthed, most hypocrit ical, corrupt and generally villainous compound of earth and spirit that God permits toexist. Yet those who charge me with theauthorshipof "Pilgrim's" letters, by that very charge, make me out such a dog as this. "Can such things be and overcome us like a summer's cloud, without our special wonder?" But, time will set all things even, and I am content to wait for my vindica tion. Meanwhile let all beware how they talk of that miserable excrescence of scribble-dom, "Pilgrim," as being the same person as UNCLE TOBY. COXdKESS. SENATE.— The petitions of Gen. Jeff. C. Davis, and of other officers of the ar my, asking for an increase of pay, were presented and referred to the Commit tee on Military Affairs. The bill taking away the pardoning power from tiie President was reported from the Com mittee on the Judiciary for immediate consideration, but, objection being made it went over. The .Secretary of War was requested to inform the Senate wheth er Commissioners had been appointed to award payments to loyal slaveown ers for slaves drafted or enlisted in the army, and, if so, whether any report has been made by such Commissioners. A bill was also introduced suspending all payments as compensation to own ers of slaves drafted or enlisted in the army until the final report of tne Com missioners has been made and approv ed by Congress. It was referred to the Committee on Finance. Joint resolu tions of the Vermont Legislature in fa vor of negro suffrage throughout the United .States and the District of Colum bia were presented and laid on the ta ble. Notice was given that on Monday next the bill to establish an uniform system of bankruptcy for the United States will he taken up, and also that the resolution disbanding militia organ izations in the Southern States and pro hibiting their re-organization, will be taken up at an early day. The Senate then adjourned until Monday next. HOUSE. —TheCommitteeon Postoffi ces and Post Roads was instructed to inquire into the propriety of conferring upon the Postoffice Department the sole jurisdiction over telegraph lines now in operation, or to be constructed, as it now exercises over postoffices and roads. A resolution was passed calling on the Postmaster General for the names of all postmasters removed since the last ses sion of Congress, the cause of removal, names of the new appointees, and as to the increase of salaries. Mr Williams' hill regulating appointments and re movals from office was taken up, and an amendment was offered allowing the heads of Departments to appoint all their assistants and subordinates, sub ject to the consent of the Senate. The further consideration of the bill was then postponed until Monday next. The President was requested to inform the i louse whether any portion of Mexican territory has been occupied by United States troops, and ifso, for what purpose and by whose authority. A resolution was passed appointing a committee of three to proceed at once to New Orleans and institute a thorough inquiry into the cause of the riots in that city dur ing last July. The Committee on the Judiciary was instructed to inquire as to what legislation is necessary to pre vent the counting of electoral votes from States not entitled to representa tion. A resolution was adopted in structing the Committee on the Judici ary to provide by law for the exclusion of all persons who served in any capaci ty under the Confederate Government from exercising the right of suffrage in the District of Columbia. The resolu tions introduced by Mr. Myers, of Penn sylvania, on Tuesday, calling on the President for information in regard to appointments made during the recess were taken up and passed. Mr. Schenck's bill changing the time of the meeting of Congress to the 4th day of March for the first session and to the second Monday in November for the second session* was taken up,andalong debate ensued, during which a number of amendments were proposed. Pend ing the consideration of the bill and amendments the House adjourned un til Monday next. STAKTMXi IXSCI.OSI RES. WASHINGTON, Dec. s.— The report of the investigating committee dis closes startling frauds upon the Gov ernment. Parties in high position in the South during the war are seriously implicated. The frauds amount to HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dol lars. No wonder the "loyal" scoundrels, were opposed to the cessation of hostil ities and denounced as "copperheads" all who favored that object. Whilst contractors, and sutlers, and commis saries, and provost marshals, Ac., were swindling the people, they were brim full of patriotism, and were always rea dy to mob, and imprison, and talk loudly about preserving "the best gov ernment the world ever sawyet, at the.same time, they were stealing them selves rich. The truth is the people will never know how much these Rad ical robbers have stolen until the Dem ocratic party gets into power and is en abled to unearth the rascality and cor ruption that is now covered up. Even now these self same paragons of New England honesty and "ove of country are set in uncompromising hostility to a reconstruction of the Union, for the reason that-the rascally "rebels" would thereby be invested with rights and privileges of which they are undeserv ing! On'y think of it, hundreds of mil/ions of dollars stolen by those who held high official positions during the war ! But, a Radical Congress will, no doubt, wink at thesestupendous frauds, and swear that it is a story concocted by "rebels and rebel sympathizers," and most probably their poor (luluded fanatical followers will believe them, and "stick to the part;/."—Crawford Democrat. —The Rump Congress hasashort lease of life—twelve weeks.
