be the last time that we will have the privi-
lege of addressing you on this important
step— and it may for aught we know, be the
last time you will be permitted tu show your

can say that your right of suffrage, the right
to choose men to represent you in the differ.

As this may be the last oppor-
tunity we will have to urge our
Democratic friends to come out |
to the election in full force, we
wish once more tq impress upon
them the absolute necessity of
prompt and decisive action. The
contest is at hand—the enemy is
marshalling his forces and next
TUESDAY will decide who are
the victors. Come out, then,
Democrats, to the polls, in ALL
your strexcri! Let not one
man remain behind! The

ONE VOTE! The Republicans
are going to make a hard fight,
and 1t is necessary that we should
make corresponding exertions to

and then you will have time and
opportunity to bury up others.
This is the way to succeed and
{he only way in which we can
be sucessful. See to it, then,
Democrats, that our full party

left lagging behind. It this be

Armstrong, we learn, has been

reputable business of circulating
papers and tickets in favor of a
third person as a candidate for
Congress, hoping thereby to draw
votes from Judge Hole and thus
secure his own election! THow-
ever much we now difler or have

be so outnumbered that it would
be almost impossible for them to
accomplish anything! Will you

“the Constitution of our fathers is no guide

as it shouid be," ie, (as the abolitionists
wonld make it) “for the freedom of the ne.

tions of our sister States. lad we told you
one year ago that in twelve months your
right of trial by jury would be denied you--
tat the war would be carried on for other
purposes than the reconstruction of the Uns
ion, you would not have believed us ; yet it
is nevertheless true. The warmest friend of
the Administration cannot deny it—the
strongest advocate in the ranks of the oppo-
sition dare not contradict it. It stands out
in bold, black characters in evidence of their
hellish designs to overthrow the government
which has heretofore made us a free, a pros
perous and a happy people. Can you, WiLL
you, DARE you place power again in the
hands of a party, the record of which proves
it to be the enemy of your liberties ? Can
you, wir you, DARE you permit it longer
to wicld the sceptre of despotism, aud, un-

children by robbing you of your hard earned
money, and murder your sons, fathers, and
friends in a war which could have bzen sets

Riwembcr, the party that now opposes
Democratic principles, has, by its secret
p otungs and plundering contracts, placed a
debt of hundreds of millions of dollars upon
your shoulders. They have robbed you of
this money not to sustain the government,
but to fill the pockets of black hearted vil

blood of the nation, and, ghoul-like, gloat
over the rain they have accomplished.

When the free negro party speaks to you
about the ¢ disloyalty” of the Democratic
party, and advise you not to vote the Con-
stitutional Union ticket, remember it is but
a false alarm, a ruse to lead you into their
revolutionary snares, a trick to lure you ins
to the support of the free negro ticket, so
that they may be continued in power. Do
not heed them. Their cry of *¢ s*op thief”
is not calculated to divert your attention
from their own black catalogue of treason-
able utterances and acts, and from their
criminal deeds.
Remember, it was the Free negro party
that desired to ** LET THE UNION SL1DE”
while Democrats were interceeding and
praying for its perpetuity.
Remember it was the free negro party
that published a map of the United Sta‘es,

that carried the Star Spangled banner

Remember it was the free negro party
that published statistics, showing the

over the Sou'h, encouraging the northern
people to rebel against the government, and
like Jeff Davis, to form a confederacy of
their own.
Remember it was the free negro party
that called the American flag «“ A FLAUN-
TING L1E,”” and declared that the ** FIL
Remember, it was the free negro party
that encouraged and aided "REASON, when
John Brown attacked the peaceable citis
zens of Harper's Ferry, murdered them, and
strove to incite a horrible insurrection.—
They aided John Brown in concocting the
grand scheme for tho subversion of the
Constitu ion, the nverthrow of Dewmocra ic
government, and the establishment of a
monarchy. They were the first to fire the
gun and apply the torch of treason. Re-
member this when they beg your votes,
and tell them that if they had not first for-
cibly seized the government arsenals aud
defied the supreme Jaw ot the land,
bath rg their hands in the innocent loyal
blood, southern traitors would never have
dared to raise their black flag. ThLe pco-
ple of the South would have crashed them
as though they had been venomous gnats.

that threatened to burn the capital if the
Government would dare to execute John
Drown the traitor, calling him the * Second
Jesus Christ,” and after his execution pro-
nounced the gibbet upon which he was
hung more ko'y than the cross upon which
the Redeemer of mankind was crucified.

that pronounced the Constitution ¢ A
Remember it was the free negro party
that threatened to ** to kick or hang every
Southern State out of the Union.
Remember it was the free negro party
that threatened “violence resistance with
WEAPONS,” if the people would dare to
discard and condemn their treasonable dog-
mas ot the ballot box, refusing to abide by
the will of the majority, just what Jeft Da
vis aud his rebel States are now doing.
Remember it was the free negro party
that defeated the compromise measures ofls
ered by the venerable Crittenden. who was
anxious to save the country from the bloody
ruin and horrors of a civil war.
lemember it was the free negro party
that called George Washington a ** SCOUN-
DREL,” and his compeers VILLIANS,”
and “TYRANTS,” because they framed the
glorious fabric of democratic government
under which we prospered for more than
three fourths of a century.
Remember it was the free negro party
that told you the South could be conquered
by a ‘*dozen’’ New England yankees and
several old women armed with broemsticks
and hot water, deceiving you, winning your
suppeTts taking your hard earncd money to
carry on a War to gratify their own feeling
of hatred and nice, calling upon you to
sacrifice your lives in ® war. the horrorg
and expenses 6f which wmiglt have been hon
orably avoided. ?
pember it was the free negro plTty
{hat told you of a glorious change, that
promised you roasted beef and two dollars
aday to sit and read the New York 77s
bune, and sung sweet gongs for you of ‘a
good time coming,” promised fo make you
rich and give vou & home if you would on-
ly become a Wide Awake and vote ‘che
ticket.” Remember this too, and when you
are asked to place them in office again,
point them to the vacant chairs around the
hearthstones ; point them to the unmarked
graves in an enemies land, wherein lies the
mangled and decaying forms of your broth-
ors, your sons and your friends ; point them
to the bloody fields of Antietam. Bull Run,
Fair Oaks, the terrible Seven Days, Shiloh,
etc ; point them to the millions of dollars
that they have purloined from the + public
treasury ; point them to the fearful ragni-
tude of the national debt, which is growing
with ruinous rapidity ; point them to the
frightful and exorbitant taxes which you
will have to pay ; point them to the mill-
iors of dollars of treasury notes, the penny
«+ ghinplaster.” and their ragged old checks
point them to the idle factory furnace etc.
point them to these, and ask them to ex-
plain ; ask them whether these are the good
times which they promised, the blessings,
the luxuries which they promised to show-
er upon you. Do this and hear their an.
Remember it was the free negro party
that was opposed to the oppressed and ex
iled white foreigner secking liberty and a
home in the United States, calling them
¢ Irish thieves and beggars,” and Dutch
numskulls and krout gluttons, ranking
them with the brate crea ion, —
Remember such was their treatment of the
brave men who now compose the strongest
bulwarks of our government in the present
hcur of danger.
Remember it was the free negro party
that is now feeding your friends in the ar-
my on salty flitch and hard crackers, that
is now taxing you and taking from you
that for which you have labored hard to
purchase negroes and to colonize them, or
to send them into your midst to subsist on
you, to compete with you in labor, to be
your equal, and to have the same rights of
suffrage that you enjoy. Recollect this. —
They are bestowing upon the black savage
that which they refused to grant to the
white refugee from tyranny and persesution.
Do not doubt this fact Read the corres-
pondence between Scerefary Stanton and
Gen. Tuttle. Read the conference between
the President and the Negro Colinization so-
ciety. Read the President's emancipation
proclamation. Read these significant doc-
uments, and you will find that the white
man’s day of glory has faded, that his star
of empire has fallen from its proud orbit in
the land of Washington !
Remember it was the free negro party
that collected in mobs and rioted through
onr streets, sulting and outraging men and
women, destroying property, dragging the
disciples of Washington and
Jefferson and Jackson and Webster and
Clay from the embrace of their weeping famn-
il es, casting them into dark damp dungeons
to subsist on food too rotten and coarse for
the carrion beast, and to live mid vermin of
the most loathsome and malignant species.
This too, is worthy of remembrance.
Remember it was the free negro party
who trampled upon the Constitution, enac.
ted their party creeds to be the laws which
are hereafter to govern the people, protected
themselves and the long list of governinen
defrauders and robbers from the punitive
laws of the government by illegal enacts
ments, ana frustrated every noble plan
which wisdom and patriotism produced for
an amicable settlement of our difficulties. —
They sat in usurpation like the dreaded na-
tional Assembly of the Reign of "Terror,
holding inquisitions, passing sentéhces of
condemnation, and sending forth their man-
dates of extortion to oppress and endanger
the people. :
Remember it is the free negro party that
is casting houest patriots into prison, sup
pressing the spread of information of vital
importance to the people, binding the press
and dogging the life course of loyal men
with slander insults, and threatened assinas
Remember itis a Free Negro Adminis-
tration that has erected a despot’s throne
and crowned itself dictator. It sends forth
its commands. and the people are trembling
beneath the rigor and iron rule of martial
jaw. With a flourish of the pen, the Presi-
dent—the servant of the people, chosen but

ces in America ‘ henceforth and forever!’

grand flourish, and every subject who dares
to speak a word against the high handed
usurpation of power, must suffer the sens
tence of court mnrtial.
Remember these things. Give them deep
and thoughtful attention. Ponder over
them long and sincerely, and learn who are
the enemies of the Constitution and the
Union. When the free negro party speak
to you of the disloyalty of the Old Guard of
the nation, then to their own black record
tell them bow Jeft Davis prays for
their success, and tien turns away fom
them with contempt and scorn, and rally to
the support of the Old Constitution, the Old
Union, and the Old S'arry flag.— Lewisburg

when radical Abolitionism, in every branch
of the Government, threatens the overthrow
of the Constitution, the disruption of the
Union, a vast accumulation of public debt,
and a radical change in the social! and polit-
ical condition, by elevating the neg to
equality with the white race. Ring it out,
loud and clear, in every district, that this is
not only a contest for the preservation of
clear, indisputable, constitutional, civil and

the social and political supremacy of the

Are You Working?
Democrats of Centre county
are you working earnestly, ac-
tively, and unceasingly? Have
| you seen to it that every Dem-
ocrat is assessed? Are you
making arrangemente to get ev-
ery man to the polls? Are you
reasoning with your neighbor?
Be vigilant! Leave nothing un-
done to secure suceess, that can
be honorably done! There never
was a time in the history of this
nation when the ballot-hox was
as potent for good, as it will be
on Tuespay. Youmust re-
buke Abolitinism, if you would
save the country. You must
check the assumptions of arbi-
trary power’ if you would pre-
serve your liberties. Gotowork!
Leave no proper means untried’
to increse the majority in this
County! Every vote is import-
ant. One vote may prevelly the
election of some aholitionized
Republican. See to it that every
vote is out! See to it that every
voter gets the right kind of a
ticket! Let there not be a sceutch
on a Democratic ticket this fall!
We think we can safely pledge
old Centre for the largest tnajor-
ity she ever gave. What say
you? Shallitbeso? Itis for
the Demacrats and the Conserv-
ative men to say. We have no
fear of the result, if they do their
duty. ;
