Will You Endorse Stanton?
It cannot be denied that Edwin M. Stan
ton, Secretary of War, is justly chargeable
with the long detention of our prisoners in
the Southern stockades, he having refused
persistently to exchange them, on the ground
that tire rebels would not exchange
for negroes. Thus, on account of Sta
whim in regard to the status ot tlrenegvo,
thousands of the unfortunate
fell into the hands of the rebels, peristal
in the prisons of the South. This i 3
stantiatcd by Mr. J. H. Browne, the cor-j
•espondent or the N. Y. Tribune , who was, j
himself, a prisoner at Andersonville, and;
who has always been an ardent "Repnbli-
UUl* a Wfov At* terl A G, !
Mr. Browne uses the following emphatic
language: "That they (the Union pris- j
oners at the South) were not saved, is due
alone to Mr. Edwin M. Stanton's peculiar |
policy and dogged obstinacy ; and, as 1
have remarked before, HE IS UNQUES- j
TIONABLY THE DIGGER OF THE j
UNNAMED GRAVES THAT CROWD
THE VICINITY OF EVERY SOUTH
ERN PRISON, WITH HISTORIC
HORRORS."' This monster, who Held in
so light esteem the lives of the men who;
were tiighting to save his very neck, has
been endorsed in the most unequivocal
manner by the late Abolition State Con
vention. The resolution of approval of his
official conduct is as follows :
Resolved, That we recognize in Edwin M. Stanton, the
present honest and able head of the Department of' War,
a public servant who hap deserved well of his country and
has borne himself so clear in his great office a? to merit
the earnest gratitude of ali loyal men; and we tender to
him and to his distinguished colleagues in the Cabinet,
our thanks for their valuable services in the use of liber
ty and law.—< See Bedford Inquirer, Aug. 25.
Now, it is plain, that every vote cast for
the Abolition State ticket, at the coming
election, is an approval of Stanton's con
duct in refusing to exchange prisoners.
Are you quite prepared to do that, fellow
citizens? Are you entirely willing to say,
with the Abolition leaders who passed the
foregoing resolution, that the man who
might have saved the prisoners at Ander
sonville, but who permitted them to sink
mto nameless graves, "merits the earnest
gratitude of all loyal men ?*' Remember,
it you vote for Hartranft and Campbell,
vou give your endorsement to Stanton, and
declare to the world, that you approve of
the policy by which thousands of the brave
inldurs of the Union were doomed to fear
ful privation, horrible suffering and un
timely dctth. How can you do it V
Remember the one-handed veteran, Col. W.
VV. If. DAVIS, who heads the Democratic
State Ticket. That hand-lees right arm,
which struck so vigorously tor the Hag uu-
Jer which you fought, appals to you new!
Remember Col. Linton, covered with scars
received in the service of his country*.—
These men were neither holiday soldiers,
nor hangmen; they are true and tried de
fenders of the stars and stripes. Fall into
line, boys, and give them a hearty support.
fbat a Democratic victory in Pennsylvania,
r.t this crisis, may be worth to us what we were
i heated out of last fall, a Democratic President.
Andy Johnson must be sustained in what he
nas done to overturn the schemes of the rad
Cessna vs. Cessna.
In order to show the complete political
tergiversation of the present Chairman of
the Abolition State Committee, we have but
fo refer to the series of resolutions in his
own hand-writing, presented at a Democrat
ic meeting, held in the Court House, in this
place, in September, 1861, and compare
them with one of the principal planks in
the platform upon which he and his candi
dates now stand. We have, in our posses
sion, the following resolutions, in the verita
ble ealigraphy of John Cessna, and any
person wishing to see these
Arso by calling at our office:
•'Resolved. That we hereby fipprove. endorse and rati
fy the platform of Democratic principles adopted by our
lato County Convention and cordially recommend the tick
et nominated by that convention to Uu support of thr
people." TMM"Wh "■Tifi<m<|i|J l ill
•'Resolved. That the civil war, by which our country is
at present distracted, is the natural offspring of misguided
sectionalism, engendered by i-natical agitator*. North as
well as South, and that the Democratic party have equal
ly opposed the extremists of both sections, and having, at
all times, zealously contended for the administration of the
General Government, within its constitutional limits, that
party is in no way responsible for calami lies that have re
sui ted from a departure from its doctrines and a disregard
of its warning and advice.
"Rrseivii, That the following resolution of the Hon.
John J. Crittenden, of Kentucky, lately introduced into
Congress by hiiit and adopted almost unanimously by that
body, so far as it relates to the objects of the war. meets
with the approbation of the Democracy of Bedford coun
ty : 'Resolved, that the present civil war has been forced
on us by the disunionists of the Southern States novr in
rebellion against the Government of the l T nited States;
that in this national emergency, Congress, bav ding all
feelings of passion and resentment, will recollect only their
duty to their country, that the war is not waged for eon
quest or subjugation, or interfering with the rights or es
tablished institutions of the states, but to maintain Rnd j
defend the .supremacy of the Constitution, with all the
dignity, equality and rights of the several states under it
unimpaired, and that as soon as these objects shall be ac
complished the war ought to cease."
Here it will be seen that the
man ot* the Abolition State Committee, com- j
plctely exonerates the Democracy from all
responsibility in connection with the origin
ol* the war, and that he blames our nation
al troubles wholly upon "fanatical agitators,
North as well as .South," meaning the very
Abolition leaders with whom he at present
consorts. But how does the Crittenden
doctrine which Jolin Cessna so strongly en
dorsed and which declared the war not to
be for conquest or subjugation, but merely
for the restoration of the authority of the
Constitution, tally with the fourth resolu
tion in the present Abolition State Platform?
J 'hat resolution declares,
"That, having conquered the rebellious states, they
shouliUfee HELD IN SUBJUGATION, and the treatmeo
they are to receive, and the laws which are to govern them,
should be referred to the law-making power of tue na.ion.
to which they legitimately belong."
Observe the sharp arid direct antagonism,
the Crittenden resolution arfflPflis
fourth plank in the Abolition Platform. The
former says that the war is not for conquest
or subjugation. The latter declares that tiie
"rebellions states have been conquered " and
"should be held in subjugation Ther
efore, .John Cessna, in order to stand upon
the present Abolition platform, is compelled
to face in an exactly opposite direction from
that in which he looked in September, 1861.
Now, as to the consistency of such a man
and his claims to the confidence of the pub
lic, we leave the reader to make up his own
The Defaulting Collector.
The story of the boy who caught the
wasp, exclaiming "Zip, I got you!" and as
quickly, "Zip, I let you go again!" is beau
tifully exemplified by the dashing style in
which the Bedford Inquirer pitched into
the Democracy, on the county debt ques
tion, and the hasty manner in which it tried
to extricate itself from the dilemma into
which its rashness led it to plunge. Hav
ing been branded as a DEFAULTER TO
THE COUNTY, the senior editor of that
sheet, makes haste to shelter himself under
the coat-tails of his father-in-law, Thomas
Johnston, to whom, he says, he gave his
duplicate when he left Wood berry. But it
makes no difference to the creditors of the
county, who is the deputy of the collector
for Middle Woodberry township. JOSEPH
B. DUR BORROW is responsible for the
acts of his agent, Thomas Johnston, and
he (not Thomas Johnston) now owes the
county $861.66. He dares not deny that
he is responsible to the county for this sum.
Let him do so, and a writ of fieri facias
will make him tell another tale mighty quick.
Hartranft and Mrs. Surratt.
Gen. Sherman said, in a recent speech at
St. Louis, that the true soldier was no hang
man. Sherman can't have a very high o
pinion of llartranlt, who had charge of the
hanging of Mrs. Surratt. What makes the
matter so much the worse for Hartranft, is
the fact that he sent a letter to President
Johnson, avowing his belief in the inno
cence of Mrs. Surratt, and yet, afterward,
acted as her executioner. A true soldier
would have resigned rather than he would
have done an act of such bloody inconsist

giving as our proof the following extract from
the Inquirer, of June 2:
"JVow to be plain, we know several dozen of
colored men that we would sooner see march to
the ballot box and cast their ballots than an e
qual number of Copperheads we can name."
Wirz and his Confederate.
If half that is testified to against Wirz be
true, he richly deserves hanging. Rut as Wirz
could not have abused and murdered the Union
soldiers who were prisoners of war in his charge,
if Secretary Stanton had consented to exchange
them, Stanton ought to be tried as a conspirator
with Wirz and be condemned and punished with
him. it is quite clear that to every barbarity
practiced against our men by Wirz, Secretary
Stanton was an accessary before the fact and he
should be held responsible accordingly. Had
the poor fellows, some of whom were shot and
others starved to death in Southern prisons,
been promptly exchanged, they would have es
caped the terrible tortures to which they were
MiLji#etcd. llut it is notorious that Mr. Stan-
Ton obstinately resisted all overtures and ap
peals to effect arrangements for the release of
the national soldiers captured by the rebels and
that he sought to justify his inhuman conduct
in this matter by saying that he would not agree
to exchange "fat men for skeletons." Even
if this alleged difference in the physical condi
tion of the prisoners taken ou both sides, had
rtSteft'lj it rr UUI fui
warrant for the heartless policy adopted by Mr.
Stanton. But the truth is, that Stanton first
allowed the Union soldiers to remain in captiv
ity until they were reduced to "skeletons" by
cruel usage, and then made the infirm and dy
ing conditions, to which we had suffered them
to be brought, the chief ground of his refusal
| to rescue them by exchange from their vvrefeh
|ed situation. All who have read the testimony
; against Wirz must regard him as a rare mon
! eter, whose crimes totaliy shut him out from
human sympathy, though he is not a whit more
culpable and odious than the unfeeling fiend,
who, as the head of the national War Depart
i ment, virtually acted as his confederate, by
! putting it in his power to torture and destroy
I hundreds of the brave defenders of the nation.—

Speech of President Johnson.
It is with pleasure that we publish the an
nexed speech of President Johnson, to adelega
-1 tion of Southern gentlemen who called upon
iiim, on Monday last. It has a very strong
Democratic tendency. We hope the Bedford
Inquirer will not forget to publish it. Mf.
McFarland, of Virginia, having addressed Hit
Excellency, his speech elicited the following
KEPLY OF THE PRESIDENT.
The President, in reply, expressed his sur
prise at receiving so large a number of gentle
men from the South. He had no idea that
so many persons would call upon him when he
consented to this interview. He could not
command language sufficiently to express the
deep gratification he felt at the visit and at the
patriotic remarks of the speaker who had just
| retired. He spoke of his antecedent position
j before the civil war. He. had urged his South
| ern brethern to remain in the Union aftd then
| contend for their Constitutional rights. He
felt it was their only safety and protection. He
had always been for the recognition of ail the
Constitutional rights of the slave-owning States
and believed they could have been' preserved
in the Union, if the issue had been made in
the forum instead of in the field. He himseß,
had been a slaveholder, but he had made up
his mind that if the issue ever narrowed itself
down to the question of Union or slavery that
slavery must go and the Union be saved. He
had confidence in the expression just uttered of
I devotion to the restoration of the Union, sad
| the professions of loyalty so generally evidene
| ed, and he was assured that the disposition
I was to aid in building up the waste places- of
I the South, and restoring peace, happiness,
! good-will, and Union.
He did not believe the sensation letter wri
: ters and editors who were endeavoring to cre
ate the impression that there exists in the South
disaffection and dissatisfaction, for the presence
of so many eminent and distinguished gentle
men, representing such a large constituency
fully disproved the fact, and gave the lie to
their penitent and malignant utterances. He
had confidence in the professions of the people j
of the South, and of their purpose to restore
the Union upon the principles of the Constitu- !
tion; and he hoped and believed they were
ready to come up and rally around the Union
and the Constitution.
The feud that existed was in a family circle,
and the ties of friendship, now it had ended,
he trusted would be stronger and more endtir- j
ing than ever. The mission of this great peo
ple is a lfe?h and holy one. an J in tbs Union
only could the purposes of its people and free
government be administered.
The President referred to the existing condi
tion of public affuitrp, and the gratifying anil
patriotic evidences presented to him of an early
restoration of fraternity between the different
sections of the Union, and the good to follow
this peaceful slate of affairs; and in conclusion
expressed the hope that men thoroughly loyal
would be elected to congress, in order that the
South might be again admitted to the councils
of the nation. The remarks of the President
were frequently interrupted by applause, and all
seemed highly gratified by the interview.
This county has come up ou the soldier
questiou. It is well known that the two can
didates for State officers have been soldiers,

ton, iate of Oth Pa. volunteers. For Auditor,

Fianigan, of Greene, late of 140 th Pa. volun
This is as good a Soldier's ticket as they
generally make, and we congratulate, our
lltiuver co. Democratic brethern that they have
recognized the merits of the rank and file by
nominating non-commissioned officers and pri
vates as well as those authorized to wear
sloulder straps as soldiers. There was as much
merit circled in the boys who, in private's dress
ssid "stand up, boys." as in those who, behind
them, said "go in." Let the privates and non
commissioned officers have a chance.

After serving faithfully three years and three
! menths in the army and losing his right hand
in battle, the Pittsburg Gazette, of the 28th

! that Col. Davis "had neither the gallantry* or
pttriotism to re-enlist in 1864-5." Had Col.
j Campbell, the Republican nominee, the "gal
| laitry and patriotism to re-enlist in 1864-5 ?"
VVe tind he was mustered out September 3,

I aostered out Oct. 1, 1864, and although Col.
Campbell was not disabled by any wounds, "he
dd nut re-enlist. If the Gazette's logic is cor
ed, therefore Col. Campbell has less "gallan-
I ty and patriotism" tlmn Col- Davis,

B-enlist, consequently Colonel Davis could not

It was a bad move for the Republicans of lowa
to put their candidate 011 the black platlorm,
directly and openly. They should have been
slirewd, like their Pennsylvania brethern, and
so constructed their platform as to mean one
thing or another. Had the lowa Repubs a

Trusted in the work of Restoration.
NRW ORLEANS, September 7th — A special
despatch from Jackson, Mississippi, to the Time*
of this city, says General Slocnm, has recall'd
his order opposing General Sharkey's call for
! the militia.
Goiernor Sharkey publishes the following
I; is believed there can be organized in each
l county ft force of militia to preserve order and
enforce the civil authorities of the State, and of
the United States, which would enable the Fed
eral Government to reduce the army, and with
draw, to a great exteut, the forces from the
State, thereby reducing tlie enormous expenses
of the government.
| If tlune was any danger from an organization
of the citizens for the purpose indicated, the
military are there to suppress, on the first ap
j pearance, any move insurrectionary in its char
acter. One great object is to induce the people
to come forward in defense of the State and
Federal Government. Gen. Washington declar
; ed that the people, or the militia, was the arm
of the Constitution, or the arm of the United
i States, and, as soon as it is practicable, the o
iiginal design of the government should be re
j sinned under the principles of the great charter
i of freedom, handed down to the people by the
founder of the republic. The people must lie
trusted with their government, and if trusted,
j my opinion is, that they will act in good faith,
i and restore their former constitutional rela
tions with all the States composing the Union.
The main object of Major Gen. Gail Scburifs
mission to the South was to aid, as much as
practicable, in carrying out the policy adopted
by the government for restoring the States to
I their former relations with the federal govern
ment. It is hoped such aid has been given.—
