THE Radical party from its very in ception down to the present time, has been a party of treachery and double dealing. It has never fought a cam paign openly and manfully, nevcs de clared to the country, before the elec tion, its real principles and purposes. The ultraism of its leaders needed only to be avowed to be repudiated by the people. Hence its uniform policy has been to deny the real issues and carry the elections on false ones. This it has done from first to last, with an unblush ing effrontery that baffles description. From 1856 to 1860 that party, through every authoritative channel, through its press and stump-speakers, its State: and National Conventions, solemnly declared tothe country that it intend ed no interference with slavery in the States. Mr. Lincoln, in his inaugural address, reiterated the same doctrines that had cheated the country into his support. Congress followed this by joint resolutions deliberately repeating the same solemn lie. The sequel is familiar to all. As soon as they had the country hopelessly involved in war, this party, false to all its pledges, but true to its secret intentions from the first, abolished slavery by a single stroke of the Presidential pen. They have always shirked the ques tion of Negro Suffrage and Negro E quality, and yet these doctrines are as much a part of their creed as the ten commandments are a part of the Bi ble. Their leaders have intended from the first, to stop at nothing less than complete social and political equal ity between the two races. Their de nial of this was only another instance of their cowardly mode of warfare. In this, as in every thing else, they have uniformly gone into the contest with an honest flag floating over a pi rate's deck, and thus achieved their victories. They have, however, at last seen proper to throw off their disguise and unfurl the black flag that marks the true character of their craft. Congress, at its present session, has established unqualified negro suffrage in the Dis trict of Columbia and in \ all the terri tories of the "United States. It has al so passed a law excluding the Southern States from the Union until they shall establish Negro Suffrage. These acts, it seems to us, render it impossible for the Radical leaders longer to conceal their real purposes from the people. The issues must hereafter be squarely met. It remains to be seen whether the country will indorse these meas ures ; whether this party of fraud, hy pocrisy and lies, can be continued in power after it has cheated and betrayed the great body of its own followers. THE Radicals in Congress have at last declared their deliberate purpose to exclude the South from the Union until Negro Equality is established by the several State Constitutions. In the meantime the Southern people are to be governed by the bayonet. Armies 'are to be quartered upon them, and the military is to be superior to the civil power. Military commissions with all their infernal incidents, are to take the place of Courts of Justice. Such are the provisions of the Military Subjugation Bill as it at last passed both houses of Congress. The infamy of this measure is unparalleled in the annals of oppression. Never before were a conquered and unresisting peo ple so mercilessly compelled to bite the dust. But one result can follow. A spirit of hatred and vengem e, the nat ural offspring of tyranny, will spring up all over the South. A dozen Po lands and Irelands are established within our borders, and standing ar mies are necessary to keep them in subjugation. God alone can foresee where all this will end. —A. H. Coffroth has been rejected by the Rump Senate as Assessor of Inter nal Revenue for the 16th district. Al fred G. Lloyd, of the 23d district, is in thesame'flx. They are not Radical enough on disunion and the darkey to get their bread and bitter. Rufus < bwope, of the 16th, and W. S. M'Caud less, of the 23d, have been rejected as eol lectors. EDITORIAL CORRESI'OXDEXCE. IIARRISBURG, Feb. 23, 1867. DEAR GAZETTE: —Having a few moments of leisure, I will jot down some desultory notes touching things at the State Capital. The legislature is not in session at present, having ad journed on Thursday last to meet on Tuesday next. This adjournment, it isalleged by some of the majority, was effected because of the respect the Leg islature are supposed to entertain for the memory of thatold Virginia rebel, George Washington ; but it is shrewd ly surmised that since Andy Johnson's disquisition on defunct ducks, the Rad icals regard this as diesirac , and, there foie, think it best to keep quiet whilst its hours are passing. At any rate the glorious Twenty-Second was permitted to go by without any demonstration in its honor by the Radical Legislature of Pennsylvania. There is still some little talk about ! the Pittsburg and Connellsviile Rail | road bill which was lost in the Senate, | a few days ago. The bill will soon be ! acted upon in the House, but I think , will fail there also. There is a good ; deal of acrimony between the friends | of this bill and those of the Pennsylva | nia Railroad, and in the debate upon j the bill in the Senate, the Speaker was : frequently compelled to check Senators j in their attempts to reflect upon each : other's motives. It is a sad thing that i jealousy of sectional interests should thus divide and distract the counsels of the legislature in regard to railroad im provements, and the people should a i wake to the necessity of electing men j to that body whose broader views and earnest desires for the good of the peo ple of every section of the State will put an end to legislation which favors one locality to thedetrimentof another. I fear that there is but little prospect of the enactment of a Free Railroad Law. True, there may some law be passed which will bear such a title, but the bills which I find on the tiles of the two j Houses, professing to be "free railroad laws," would make an infinitely worse j system than that which exists at pres- j ent. One of them, for instance, pfopo- j ses to erect a "Railroad Bureau," the j "Comptroller of Railroads," to be ap-! pointed by the Governor. There is j too much one man power in this to be a safe measure, and at any rate we want j as few bureaux in this country as possi ble. There are generally too many j drawers in such institutions to suit the i pockets of the people. Another bill (the "free railroad" law pur excellence) constitutes the Secretary of the Com monwealth the head of a railroad de partment, and requires that fifteen thousand dollars of stock shall be sub scribed for every mile of railroad to be built, ten thousand dollars of which must be subscribed and ten per cent, of the ten thousand dollars paid up, be fore permission will be granted by the Secretary of the Commonwealth to a ny company to act as a corporation. This bill, also, makes the members of companies individually liablefor every responsibility incurred by such compa nies. I should like to see the railroad that will be constructed under such a law as this. If we are to have a "free railroad law" at all, let it be free in the true sense of the term. Let us have no Railroad Autocrat at llarrisburg, but, as railroads are a public blessing, let us have a law which will permit a nyman, or set of men, under proper restriction, to construct all the railroads they please. If we cannot have such a "free railroad law," it will be infi nitely better to have none at all. There is not much said about the pro posed Constitutional Convention. The Radicals are very reticent in regard to the matter. Ls there any doubt that such a body should assemble? I think not. Our State system needs remodel ing. The local interests of this great Commonwealth are so various and di versified that justice to all of them de mands that communities rather than counties or municipalities, should have representation in the Legislature. A gain, the office of Auditor General should be abolished, and instead there of, a board of State Auditors should be erected, to consist of two persons, both to be chosen at the same election, and each voter to cast a ballot for but one of them. This would operate as an effect ual check to all partizan white-wash ing Of the plundering of the Treasury. Other reforms, of which I have not space to speak at present, would also engage the attention of such a body. I, therefore, hope, almost against hope, that the Legislature will yet adopt a call for such a Convention. I have just learned that Gen. A. 11. Coffroth, Assessor of Internal Revenue for our district, and Col. R. C. Svvope, Collector of Internal Revenue lor the same, have both been rejected by the U. S. Senate. lam sorry for this, per sonally speaking, as they were both excellent officers and good friends of the subscriber. I cannot see why the Senate refuses toconrfim the appoint ments of President Johnson, as their refusing to do so does not restore the Radicals to office, but operates only to give the vacant places to other friends of the President. There has been lately some legisla tion for Bedford county, among which I notice the passage bv the House of the bill to incorjK>rate the "Morrison's Cove liailroad Company," which com pany, I understand, is to build a road to connect Wood berry with Newry, Blair county. I must close. An re voir. B. F. M. —The lihode Island Radical State Convention nominated the following i canidates. For Governor, General Burnside; Lieut.

BOW EN ESQ., is a regular j lv authorized agent for this paper, and ; will visit our friends throughout the county, for the purpose of makingcol leetions and taking suhscritions. We hope that his calls will be responded to in the proper spirit. We havesome SO,OOO on our books, SI,OOO of which we need very badly to pay a debt we owe in bank. In fact we must collect, and if mild measures will not answer our purpose, we will be compelled to resort to harsher ones. There are many per sons who pay promptly. To such, thanks ! There are more who do not. To such, duns, and finally writs. We desire to oppress no man. We are wil ling to be liheral to those who are in straitened circumstances. But if me do not heed our request to settle, ifthey treat our call for payment with con tempt, they have no further claim upon our generosity. We have given away enough in onr business to keep a small family five years. If we are to contin ue that sort of work, we want those who can pay to coine forward and do it, and those who can't, to step upland settle. Of course, we don't refer to those who do pay. If this be not at tended to soon, we will see whether "some things can't be done as well as others." CONGRESS. SENATE.—The President was reques ted to inform the Senate whether any salary has been paid to Mr. Ilarvey the United States Minister to Portugal, since ; the passage of the Diplomatic Appro ' priation bill of July 2oth, 1866, The bill to quiet land titles in California, and al so the bill to amend the act providing for the safety of passengers in steam ves sels, were taken up and passed. The Clerk of the House, at 12.40 P. M., an nounced that the House refused to con cur in the Senate amendments to the bill providing for the establishment of military governments in the Southern States and asked a committee of confer ence. A motion was then made by Mr. Williams that the Senate should insist on its amendments and appoint aeom mittee. After a long and spirited discus sion, in which Messrs. Williams, Sum ner and Fessenden spoke in favor of the motion, and Messrs. Conneas, Sher man, Lane, Wade and Brown against it, themotion was withdrawn. The mo tion was then made that tiie Senate in sist on its amendments. Messrs. Sher man and Trumbull then made speeches in favor of the motion. At the close of Mr. Trumbull's speech a warm discuss ion sprung up upon his having stated that theFreedmen's Bureau bill was not executed by the President. Mr. Cow an denounced the habit of tiie Senators from Massachusetts (Wilson and Sum ner) and Howard, of Michigan, of re citing to the Senate accounts of alleged murders ond outrages on the freedmen in the Southern States, which he bow ed to be wholly unfounded. A vote was finally taken on tlie motion that the Senate insist on its amendmentsand it was agreed to. The Senate then took a recess until 7} o'clock P. M. j keening Session. —A number of bills i were reported from the Committee on j Military Aifairsand passed by theSen l ate.

The House then went into Committee of the Whole on the Army Appropria tion bill, and after some time spent thereon the committee rose and the House took up the message of the Sen ate, insisting upon its amendments to the bill providing for military govern ments in the Southern States. A mo tion was made that the House recede from its disagreement, and concur in the Senate amendments with an additional amendment, providing that no person who is unable to hold office under the bill shall be allowed a seat in the con stitutional convention or permitted to vote for memb. rs of such convention.

A long discussion ensued on amotion that the Senate concur in the House amend ments, and a number of speeches were made. Mr. Johnson,of Maryland, made a speecli in which, after a long eulogy of the South, heannounced that though he did not approve of the bill be would nevertheless vote for it. Withouttaking a vote tiie Senate took a recess until 7.30 o'clock I'. M.

The previous question was then demanded and seconded on Mr. Wil son's amendment as amended, and a vole was taken which resulted in the adoption ofthe amendment—yeas 1)8, nays 70.
