teen columns of matter and is filled

The sum and substance of true union
ism in both political parties, will soon
be fully developed. The radical ele- j
ment, whether of Northerner South
ern proclivity, is about to be separated
from the great mass of the people.—
The popular indignation i> blowing as j
a fierce wind upon the political thresh
ing-floor, sweeping the chatf from the
grain, and sifting the tares from the
wheat. The party that favors prolong
ed Disunion and whose avowed pur
pose is to exclude ten States from the
Republic, can no longer retain Union
men within its ranks, nor will it be
permitted, in future, to dishonor the ;
name of "The Union Party." Its true
character is now fully disclosed. Its
Charles Suinners, its Thaddeus Ste
venses, its Fred. Douglases, nay, all its
representative men, are now engaged
in resisting the restoration of tin Luion.
They are striving to render nugatory
the great struggle of the Government
for self-pre-ervation. They are labor
ing with might and main to force up
on the country a policy under the in
fluence of which the legitimate fruits
of the war will be mildewed and
blighted even in their perfect ripeness.
Their allies in the South are men like
D >stie and the other leaders of the
Louisiana Convention, who were orig
inal Secessionists and did more to in
flame the Southern mind, in the early
stages of the war, than the most en
thusiastic lire-cab r- in that devoted
section. Extreme-have met and the
first of Secessionists and the worst' of
Radicals, now occupy a common plat
form. On the other hand, by natural
gravitation, the conservative elements
of all parties arc about to In* consolidat
ed in one invincible host, and Demo
crats and Republicans, on the basis of
the maintenance of an "unbroken
Union," stand shoulder to shoulder in
opposition to the dark phalanx of the
Disunion Radicals. No matter about
n vines, with these patriotic men. No
matter about antecedents. They rally
under the banner of the Union, to re
store and preserve the Union, and if
need be to lay down their lives for the
Union. Thev care not whether they
he styled Democrats, Conservatives or
National Union men; they aim at a
common purpose, and they are willing
to bo called by any name, or to associ
ate with any class of white men, to
accomplish their patriotic tnd. The
people must and w ill make choice be
tween these two parties. They must
choose between Radical Disunionism
and Conservative Unionism. They
mu-t decide between ThaddeusStevens
an;l Andrew Johnson. Men and breth
ren, think, reflect, and pray God to
g veyou mind and heart to decide for
tae right!
General Geary's speech at York, on
the Oth inst., will make thousands of
his best friends blush with shame. It
was a carefully considered speech—at
least, the occasion was an important
one, and the General had plenty of time
to consider. He was to be put on ex
hibition. He was to solicit of the peo
ple the highest honor in their gift.—
He was to appear before assembled
thousands and open one of the greatest
political campaigns ever fought in the
Keystone State. The veterans of a
hundred battles were to look upon
their General for the first timeina new
'character. Wealth and beauty and
fashion wereto surround him. Gover
nor Curtin was to sit by his side.—
Bands of music were to .cheer him with
their martial airs. And of this impos
ing and splendid scene General Geary
was to be the center, the hub. Some
thing good was expected of him—or, at
least, something decent and dignified.
The crowd who had assembled to hear
him were respectable, and the General
was expected to deport liimsoif accord
Under such circumstances, a speech
abounding in bad English, slang and
scurrility, was humiliating. But that
he should in course and vulgar terms,
vilify the Democratic soldiers of Penn
sylvania, was disgraceful. We-quote
from the report of his speech in For
ney's Press:
"When I look around this assem
blage and see that around me are fel
low soldiers, ivho have borne arms
with me first battle of Bull
Run, not one or two from a regiment
a> w as the case at Harrisburg the other
day, shysters and coward*, skulkers and
hospital bummers. 1 know such to be
the fact, for 1 have driven them Irom
the army myself. They say they are
going to vote for Hiester Clymer."
Pray whyshould General Geary use
such language? Is he so narrow mind
ed as to deny personal courage to all
except those of his own political faith?
Is there no glass in his own house that
he can thus afford to throw stones?—
The soldiers who assembled in conven
tion at Pittsburg were brave men. So
were those who assembled in Harris
burg. So are the members of any sol
diers'convention that can ever he as
sembled in Pennsylvania. We hope
for the honor of our State and our race
that bravery is not confined to any
particular party. Some there may have
been who attended these conventions
with tarnished military records, and
such were as likely to be found at one
as the other. That there were many,
or that any of them appeared as dele
gates no one believes. General Geary
knows this as well as we do; and yet,
in the littleness of hi- soul, he calls the
soldiers who do not agree with him in
politics, "shysters and cowards, skulk
er- and hospital bummers." Is thi
gencrous? is it manly? is it gentle
manly? are questions that will address
themselves to brave men of all parti"-,
and be answered at the polls in Octo
And who and what is Gen. Geary
that he shoubi use such language? Be
fore the rebellion he was a failure in ev
ery thing he undertook. The soldiers
from this county and Westmoreland,
who served with him in Mexico,
allege, with great unanimity, that lie
-ecured his election as Colonel by a
trick and afterwards skulked at Cha
pu I tepee. During thereliellion he ear
ned the scorn of thousands of brave
men by hiring mercenary newspaper
correspondents to puff hfm into noto
riety, while better soldiers who scorned
such trickery, remained unnoticed. As
Mayor of San Francisco, and as Gover
nor of Kansas, his laurels were not en
viable, and in the latter capacity his in
augural address is well known to have
been a wholesale plagiarism. And
lastly, this speech at York,is very like
the speech of an ignoramus and black
guard. And yet this trickster and
-kulker in Mexico, this promoter of
mobs and riots in San Francisco, this
failure and literary thief in Kansas,
tlii- newspaper general and eapturerof
quaker guns during the rebellion, lias
the hardihood to call Pennsylvania sol
diers shysters, and cowards, skulkers
and hospital bummers.
The Radical l)i.-unionists are fright
ened almost out of their wits by the
d'seovery of the existence of a society
railed the "Mystic Circle." This new
as-ociation i> said to number two hun
ilrt I hind fifty thousand < nrolh d Members
in the State of Pennsylvania. It is
represented as not being a secret socie
ty, but its men:be;sure pledged to each
other to defend the Union of the States
and to preserve the liberty and suprem
acy of the White Race. If there be
such a society (for which we only have
the authority of the Radicals) it will
certainly wield a powerful influence in
the coming elections. The old Union
Leagues are said to have given rise to
it and those of their members who
were really Union men are registered
on it- rolls. No wonder Thad.Stevens
exclaimed in Congress, "there are
earthquakes around us."
The Democratic Congressional Con
ference for this district, met at 31c ll
vaine's, in Fulton county, on Thurs
day, Oth inst., and on the 26th ballot
nominated Hon. J. McDowell Sharpe,
of Franklin county. The candidates
before the Conference were Hon. A. H.
Cotfroth, of Somerset, Hon. Win. 31c-
Sherry, of Adams, and Mr. Sharpe, the
nominee. The final ballot stood 0 for
Sharpe, 6 for Cotfroth ; the vote of the
Adams conferees deciding the matter.
3lr. Sharpe is well known to the peo
ple of the district as an able lawyer and
an upright man. He has served two
sessions in the Legislatureduring which
he distinguished himself for the fidel
ity and ability with which he served '
his constituents. He is very popular
in his own county and will make an ex
cellent run. Of course there is no doubt
about his election.

The campaign opens gloriously.—
Kentucky has just voted, and the De

21,000 to 40,000 majority. This is in
deed a cheering sign. Last year the
Democrats carried the State by only a
bout 600 majority, showing a gain of!
2-1,000 at least. Now, let New Eng- !

Gov. ( t'KTi.N inadea speech at York,
on the !ith in which he said,
"They (the Democrats) are in great (lis- i
tress because ire, are every where going to '
allow the negro to rote. I say if the South
wants him to voir, thcncomeo/i with your
woof. There is no possible objection to it."

On Wednesday evening, the first o
August. Jack I Tamil ton, of Texas, i
disciple of Stevens, Sumner, Forney <S
Co., made a disunion speech in liar
risburg. His doctrine was of the rnos
radical and revolutionary character.—
He declared that
This sentiment was received will
round applause. Congress ?.s acting
rapidly on tins programme, and in:
little while, unless the revolutionary
plans of the Radicals are stopped.
"State lines" will l>e blotted out, and
instead of a union of States we will
have a consolidated Empire.
Mr. Hamilton is also sound on tin
negro question. He said to his audi
ence :
" You sent your sons to fight, for tlx
Union, for liberty, and for oil; am! in
that goo had the manhood to Include tin
poor negro." 1
This was likewise applauded.
What say our soldiers to this senti
ment? Did they risk life and limb for
the negro? Let them answer the sec
ond Tuesday of October.
FEW candid men who have carefully
watched the course, of the Radical par
ty during the last year, says the Eric
(tbxercer, can doubt that the pervading
motive of its leaders arises from noth
ing more or less than an overweening
love of power and place, which has ri
pened into a determination to perpetu
ate the existence of their party no mat
ter at what cost, and regardless alike
of the interests of the nation and of the
fatal consequences which must inevi
tably flow from their success. For this
reason they denounce the Democracy;
for this reason they legislate, against
the South; for this reason they oppose
all movement- calculated to bring a
bout a reconciliation of the different
sections, and with this object steadily
in view they will continue to oppose
all measures for the pacification of the
country. They are determined, if pos
sible, to keep eleven States out of the
Enion until after the next Presidential
election, hoping to secure four years
more lease of office. Fortius they are
to be called to give an account. The
masses of the people have been awak
ened to a sense of the fact, that the res
toration of a great nation to its former
condition of freedom, independence,
pro-perityjuind grandeur, and its per
petuity for all time to come, are of
greater importance than the preserva
tion of a mere faction of disuniouists.
The day of reckoning is at hand.
"WILL the Democrat please state
when and where General Geary de
clared himself "in favor of negro suf
frage?' " — Johnstown Tribune.
The Johnstown Democrat thus an
swers the question: "General Geary
declared himself in favor of negro suf
frage at the time and place when he
accepted the nomination of the Disun
ion State Convention, at Harrisburg,
and adopted the platform of that con
vention, which ignores the President,
and endorses, praises and adopts the
views, principles and negro suffrage
policy of the Radical majority in Con
gress. Will the Tribune man tell the
time and place that < ieary said he was
opposed to negro suffrage, although he
has frequently been requested to give
his views on that subject?"
Several cargoes of Virginia negroes
were shipped last week at Fortress
Monroe, for Boston and other New
England cities, where the Negro Bu
reau has obtained situations for them.
We wonder if the poor white people in
our cities would apply to this Bureau
whether they would receive any atten
tion at the hands of tho-e divines and
"school inarms" that now run the
black machine.
THE New York Daily AV//-#, speaking
of a report about Grant and Sherman
being hissed at a political meeting in
Kentucky, says, "then: is not a bit of
truth in the lie." We should think
there wasn't.
THERE is no longer a "Republican"
party. The struggle is now, and will
be for some time to come, between the
Radicals and Conservatives. Is not
this the fact ? Reflect, reader, and de
cide for yourself.

Thank God, the Rump Congress—a
L j body that will ever be remembered
• with loathinganddisgust—has adjourn
ed. For eight long months this chbal
' j of conspirators and traitors has outra
; god decency by its infamous acts and
its total disregard of the wishes of the
people. The President would have
been justified had he arrested the con
spirators and placed them in theGov
' eminent forts.
; The concluding acts of this Rump
Congress—the acts of the three last
days of the session—are in keeping
I with its doings for the last eight
.! months. We will mention a few of its
resolves just previous to adjournment.
By a resolution the pay of members
of Congress was increased sixty per
cent., and the employees of the two
] louses twenty-five per cent.
The Bill to allow pensions to the old
soldiers of 181? was defeated. Reason
j given—' "want of money."
| A resolution was adopted which ap
; propriates ten thousand acres of "good
| land" to the orphan children of color
ed soldiers, and is to be called the "Na
tionuFFarrn for Orphans." These or
phans are to live on this farm, and it is
to he managed and worked by a Bu
reau, whose officers are to be white
men. An amendment WAS offered to
appropriate a National farm to the or
phans of white soldiers. Not agreed
to. Reason, "wont of money."
Ten thousand bushels of lime were
; donated to the colored ladies of Wash

I price not to exceed 810,001). Aoamend
| ment was offered appropriating 810,-
j 000 toaid in the erection of the motui
i ment to George Washington.—Voted
! down— "mod of money."
j A resolution was offered in the House
| appropriating the following sums to
! the patriots who captured Booth and
1 Harold, the assassins of President Lin
coln, viz—B7.-">00 to Col. Baker, 85,000
jto Lieut. Doherty, 85,(Miff to each of the
, detectives, to Sergeant Corbet and the
j other Sergeant of the party 82,515, to
! the Corporal $2,21)1 05), to the privates
s2.< riff.
Mr. Stevens (disunion) protested a
gaiiist this robbery of the treasury.
Vol. Baker, said Mr. S., "was not out
| of Washington city at the time of the
arrests, and had no more to do with
j them than lie (Mr. 5.,) had.
j Mr. Driggs (disunion sqid that*"this
i man Baker was building a $200,000
Hotel in Lansing, Michigan, and, he
! was informed, out of money made in
thi- war. He supposed he wanted 87,-
500 more with which to build a stable."
Mr. Stevens again appealed to the
House notto vote this money to Baker.
It wohld be robbery. The evidence fur-
I nished by the War Department show
| ed that Col. Baker had done no service
' at all. Mr. Briggs denounced tin reso
lution as a great outrage. He adinit
i ted that Mr. Conger should get at least
! SIO,OOO, but he could not understand
: what influenced the committee to give
! nearly one fourth of the whole to Col.
j Baker.
Mr. Schenck (disunion) also spoke a-
I gainst the appropriation, and hinted
j that the Republican party would "go
i under" if this kind of robbery wasper
i sisted in.
t Mr. Dawes (disunion) spoke against
! the appropriation to Lieut. Doherty.
lln that expedition Doherty proved
i himself a miserable coward. The evi-
I deuce established that while five men
j were guarding the tobacco warehouse
! where Booth and "Harold were, and
i while Conger was endeavoring to get a
I guard around them this Lieut. Doherty
; was lying under a shed, anil no power
i of Conger's could drive him out of it;
I and now Lieut. Doherty came in and
claimed that he did the whole work.
After some further discussion, the
{ vote was taken and the resolution was a
\doptedhua targe majority. So Baker

lican.j writing from Augusta, Georgia,
1 tell,von, because I know it, that the j
temper, disposition and purposes of!
the people are loyal, honestly loyal.— i
They w ant to join hands with the Con- 1
servatives of the North and give them :
active support. Let not their patriotic j
impulses be checked by illiberal tests
as to past conduct; but let the Union |
sentiment of the people be fostered and
encouraged by manifesting a desire, as j
far as po-sible, to forget the past and \
1 accept present professions as the best j
! proof of present and future loyalty.—
j The Executive party furnishes the i
most tangible evidence of the renewal ;
of sworn allegiance to the Constitution '
and Union, and -ince it must bar any!
indictment for participation in the re-1
hellion, why should it not also bar any !
exclusion from political fellowship lor
the same reason? If the hand of friend- \
ship is extended, let it be done cordial
ly, frankly, tru hfully, no* grudgingly
'or conditionally. To invite a man to }

overture to conciliation.

He isn't hot-iu-aded at all. The whole
of his seeming hot-headednoss is a mere
show, a trick, a sham, an imposture, a ;
make -believe, a thing got up as a sim
ple matter of calculation. Brownlow
is far more anxious to bethought a fiery j
and impetuous fighter than a Christian, |
but he is as little the one as he is tlie
other. He is a hypocrite both as to his
Christianity and his hot-headedness." j

SUAVE TRADE. —The "Freud men's Hu -
reau, " having controlled the destinies
of the negro population at the South
for now nearly two years, has succeed
ed in developing what the Tribune just
ly calls a "diabolical system of kidnap
ping, being the trapping of freed men
on shipboard at Pensacola Bay, and sel
ling them as slaves in Cuba."
We have nothing as yet in relation
to this matter but a brief report from
the Navy Department, some of our na
val officers having ventured to trench
so far on the despotic authority of the
"Frced'men's Bureau" as to interfere
with this revival of the slave trade,
and stop one of the vessels engaged in
it, on board of which were found no few
er than "one hundred and fifty freed
men," on their way to he sold as slaves
in Cuba. If any thing were needed
to justify the President's veto of the
! "Civil Bights Bill," and to enforce the
necessity of remitting the protection of
the negroes at the South to the regular
tribunals of justice, it would be this fla
grant proof thut, under the operation
