A Word with Our Patrons and the Re
publicans of Centre County.
This number closes the first volume
of the REPUBLICAN. We avail our
-selves of this opportunity to thank the
people for their kindly and generous
We have no complaints to make, for
certainly we have wet with the *most
unparalleled prosperity. Nobly and
manfully have the Republicans of Cen
tre aided us in our enterprise, declar ,
ing thereby the necessity of a live, vig
orous, reliable and energetic Republi
can journal in the county.
For the last six or eight years, or
from the year 1862 to the beginning of
the year 1869, the Democratic 1 , 1 7 atch
man,filled with treason, with anti-war
doctrines, and with vulgar and devil
i-,11 literature, circulated all over the
county without let or hindrance, with-
out any one to contraclictits falsehoods
or to expose its rottenness. Its Edi
tor; Mr. Meek, following in the wake
of such treasonable, false-hearted; an
ti-Democratic and anti-patriotic men
as Vallandigham, Wallace,Woodward
Co., permitted no opportunity to
pass without attacking the friends of
the Government. Consequently every
number was filled with appeals to the
people to resist the draft; with the
most treasonable and wicked doctrines;
with abuse of the purest and best
American Statesmen ; with tirades up
on the soldiers—the "Boys in Blue"—
and encomiums upon the rebel Gener
al Lee and the confederate soldiers;
-with law and - vulgar abuse of every
loyal man, and especially, of every
ehristian minister who, in obedience to
the Scriptural injuetion of rendering
"onto Ceasar the things that are Ceas
ars, and unto God the things that are
Gods," came out manfully on the side
of the Government, and against the
slave-holders rebellion. No pure man
—no loyal and patriotic man—no min
ister—no faithful soldier conk' think as
Meek thought. and, therefore, they
each, in their turn, were made to suf
fer from the shafts hurled upon them
by this treasonable and modern Ajax.
The Democratic majority was increas
ing in the county every year, and the
Court lionse Ring had become impe
rious, haughty, powerful and saucy.—
The Ring and Meek owned the Demo
cratic party, and the Republican party
(we appeal to the people for the truth
of what we assert)was, or might as well
have been without an organ.
In January last we commenced the
publication of the REPuumCAN.— •
Daily and weekly our list increased,
until we now have upon our subscrip
tion book 1672 bone fide subscribers.

In the last campaign our party came
within two hundred and twenty-five
votes of electing half our ticket, while
the majority against Governor Geary
was less than it was in 1866, or, in
other words, Centre is the only coun
ty in the State, in which Governor
Geary did better in 1869, than in 1866,
all of which we consider a great victory,
when we remember that over 300 Re
publican voters remained away from
the. polls. Our vote was increased by
honest Democrats voting our ticket.—
Hundreds of them will do the same
In view of these facts, friends, we
promise you the redemption of Centre
county from Democratic misrule with
in the next two years, and to this end,
we respectfully solicit the continuance
of your support and encouragement.
Strange, Isn't It?
Every person knows that it is im
possible for a man in a miscellaneous
crowd to engage in denunciations of
mxrderers, horsethieves; or any other
kind of thieves, without making said
murderers and thieves feel that every
word of the whole conversation is in
tended for them.
So it is with Meek. Last week, in
answer to some of the Watchman's
vain boasting, we had occasion to say
"if we had the opportunity to play
'pinnies' and 'rooster' in Harrisburg
fbr t'Z'O or three winters, wa might,
perhaps, be able to erect brick build
ings, a.c." Our reaiers will perceive
that we did not say that Meek had
played "pincher" and "rooster" while
iii filarrisblirg„ disgracing Centre
county as her representative, Yet,
d;: -, on the principle by which all thieves
are governed, Neck thought we nieaut
bila, of course, or upon that other ,
principl, as stated by Shakespeare,
: that "Conscience makes cowards of us
,a 11," Meek ppplies it all t.) himself,
i,bus acknowledging that ho is guilty
--that he did play "pincher" and
"rooster," and that his brick build
ing, was built oui l , of his, ill—gotten
- gains. We did not say so; but we
ask every intelligent man if Meek
does not admit it by his ungentleman
ly and blackguard reply. Yes, Meek,
you have established your own repu
tation as a "pincher" and "Rooster,"
and this explains the "milk in the
cocoanut" or the reason why James
Burns, Esq., was so anxious to have
you returned to Harrisburg this win
ter. But the people couldn't see it,
and poor Meek was _'hired.
" THE FOES OF SOCIETY."
A Sensational Sermon on Sensational
Our readers, by this time, have, no
doubt, learned who Rev. Frothingham
is. If not, they will soon know. He
is the sensational preacher who officia
ted with Rev. Henry Ward Beecher
at the Richardson-MaYarland marriage
and for so doing, called down upon his
lawless and shameful conduct, the crit
icisms as well as the censure of both
the Religious and Secular press of the
country. He deserved all he got, and
more. He knows his conduct was rep
rehensible and shameful, and, there
fore, winces under the well-directed
blows aimed, not so much at him, as
at his unlawful and anti-Christian par-•
ticipation in a marriage which was in
open violation of the laws of God and
man. We have said he winces under
the severe but merited excoriations of
the press; but he is too proud and
fool hardy to acknowledge his error.
On Sunday the 12th inst., he preach
ed a sermon on the "Foes of Society,"
which, for the most part, was devoted
to the press. He is said to have been ex
ceedingly savage,und demonstrated not
onlyto his hearers,b at to the world,that
he is as Christless as the religion he
teaches; that he possesses not one par
ticle of Christian charity. " Charity
suffereth long and is kind ; charity
envyeth not ; charity vaunteth not it
self, is not puffed up, doth not behave
itself unseemly,seeketh not her own,is
not easily provoked, thinketh no evil ;
rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth
in the truth ; beareth all things,believ
eth all things, hopeth all things, en
dureth all things," and although Rev.
Frothingham should speak with " the
tongues of men and of angels and have
not charity," he is, on the authority
of the Bible, nothing but " sounding
brass or a tinkling cymbal.''
Forgetting the sacredness of the pul
pit, the high and honorable character
of his calling, and in open profanation
of the Sabbath, he lets his angry pas--
slow rise, and vents his spleen and vi
tuperation upon editors, whom he
classifies among the "cold-blooded"
foes of society. We copy as follows:
"Sometimes the cold-blcoded man
"is an editor. It is his business, as
"an editor, to sell his paper. It is in
" themarket. To sell his paper, he
"must attract the multitude; but, to
" do that, he must mate a sensation;
" and, in order to do that. he has his
" spies through society—his reporters
and `interviewers.' who waylay gen
" tlemen in the street, intrude upon
the sacredness of homes, pass into
"parlors and lurk around chamber
doors and libraries of good men and
" women ; and to drag out some se
cret, and extort something from men
" to be used against themselves, their
"wives, neighbors, or friends, is part
of their business. If no story is told
them vituperation is dealt in ;
if the story is deemed unsuitable, it
is misrepresented by the reporter
• when he leaves the door. Some
' times the editor is an atheist, and
panders to the passions of the lower
class of Roman Catholics,aud would
seek to arrest a clergyman in order
to rescue an assassin from a merited
"doom or to blast the reputation of a
defenseless woman. If the press
were noble and worthy ; if it really
sought to educate the people ; if it
really meant to ha prove the condition
of the community, by vindicating
'!truth and espousing the cause of
:justice, it would be too powerful a
despotism. If people could trust the
press and give their reason over to
it, the press would dominate every
other influence. But, because of its
wickedness, people pay no heed to it
" and cast its slanders off. If it were
"noble it would not do these things—
spying into secrets. dragging the
"private interests befbre the world.—
"Are they not the moral foes who ear
"ry falsification to the dignity of a
"science, and bring malignity to the
" perfection of au art ?"
In giving utterance to the above, we
presume the Rev. Frothingham had,
in his minds eye, the Polzee Gazette,
or the Days Doings, as these papers
are to the newspaper world about what
Rev. Frothingham is to the great body
of Christian ministers—a scab, a tu
mor, a running sore, an eating cancer,
a disgrace, a cheat, a humbug,a semi
infidel, an atheist in disguise.
How can he be anything else, when
we take into consideration the fact,
that he denies the main link in the
great chain of the Christians creed—
the Divinity of Christ.
A minister—a preacher of a Christ
less religion—is certainly not the man
to indulge in bitter epithets, or in
pouring vituperations upon the press;
but is most emphatically the proper
man to assist in lawless - marriages, and
to give utterances to blasphemous sen
tences in his prayers. We write noth
ing in malice. We hope Mr. Froth
ingham may repent and he saved. To
this end we will close these strictures
in the language of the Apostle :
"Therefore I write these things being
absent, lest being present I should use
sharpne4;s, according to the power
which the Lord bath given me to edi
fication and not to destruction."
The Chester ReptMean , gets credit
for the following ingenious definition
of credit—"A wise provision by which
Sheriffs and Constables get a. living."
The Next Legislature.
The Contest fo'r the Treasitryshipe
cessity for Reform—The Bellefonte
REPUBLICAN Sustained—Voice of
the - Republican Press of Pennsylva
The Greensburg Herald, which has
not heretofore been in favor of the re
form movement,but quite the reverse,
is now beginning to see the necessity
of reform. After a review of the situ
ation and a genteel and logical defense
of Mr. Mackey, the present State
'Treasurer, (against whom,by theway,
we have no personal artimosites)gives
utterance to the following strong and
sensible points :
"When the. Legislature assembles,
should they adopt the policy of put
ting new men—worthy and fit—into
all the position they by law fill, we
shall not only be content but - rejoice.
In that case, as we before took occa.-:
sion to say, our own Borough has the
man for State Treasurer, in the per- .
son of Geo. F. Huff, Esq. We can
conscientiously say—that those who
vote for him, need never t'ear of being
assailed in the public prints for voting
for one who could make an improper
approach to any one for his support,
or would fail to make a high toned
officer, whose integrity and capacity
would remain unsullied. Outside of
Mr, Huff, we do not know who our
representatives may be in favor of or
will support. We have not had a word.
with them on that or any other sub
ject that may possibly be before them.
We confidently hope and trust, how
ever, that on this and every other
question both of legislative business
proper,and especially as to whom they
shall support for any position to be
filled by that body—they will exercise
their own discretion and Judgment, and
not allow them selves to act on the
hints or suggestions of any one, who
in pursuance of custom for years past,
may assemble himself at Harrisburg,
in no ostensible official position, and
hang around to help this man or that
man'to a position,this bill or that bill,
and fill his pocket with iligotten gains,
'pinched out of the interested parties,
for services, at the expense of the
character, it may be, of the purest
representative in the body, whom he
may have innocentlyand uns.uspro'.;inc
ly persuaded to support hispet meas
ure as a matter of policy. Beware of
all such-come from what quarter they
may. They hail from all points, and
are apparently innecent chaps : yet
scores of them have in the past filled
their own pockets just that way, while
the representatives, who innocently
did the work for him, remained pure--
uncontaminated by a single ill-gotten
cent,goes home only to be repudiated
by his constituents. After all the noise
and blow on this and kindred subjects,
this, unfortunately, is very often the
real history of the dissatisfaction with
the doings of representatives. 'Be ye,
therefore, wise as serpents and harm
less as doves,' gives the hint to the
only true policy to avoid the rocks
on which many have stranded. In the
earliest days of our history, when °nig
members and Seaters went to Har
risburg to make laws, it was not so.
It is otherwise now."
The Altoona Tribune, independent
in politics,and a paper possessing great
influence throughout the State, says:
"Our lbrmer townsmen, George F.
Hu, Esq., is being strongly ur g ed for
the position of State Treasurer, by his
friends in various portions - of the State,
and is developing an amountof strength
which cannot fail to alarm his older
competitors. If ability, integrity,hon
esty and youthful energy, were to be
the winning cards with our Legislative
Solons, George's election would be a
foregone conclusion, and the tax-pay
ers would reap the benefits of having
the State Treasury wisely and econom
The Huntingdon Globe, a most ex
cellent and ably edited paper, without
expressing its preferences for any par
ticular candidate for the State Treasu
ryship, makes use of the following
somewhat amusing, but nevertheless,
strong, figurative language :
"We hope for the credit of the party
and the State, that the Republican
members of the coming Legislature,
will act with decency and respect in
the organization of their respective
b"dies, and not act like a parcel of
hogs, each one slobbering over the
other, in his haste to snap up the
choicest tit-bit, of which there are so
many about our legislative halls. We
are not of those who are eternally
howling about the corruptions of our
Legislature, but cannot shut our eyes
to the fact that much is done which
ought not to be done, and hope that
many ef the existing evils may be cor
rected. The present Legislature can
do much toward this end, and we
trust that it may be done."
We learn from a statement publish
ed in the Democratic Watchman, sign- ,
ed by W. H. Brainard and J. W.
Furey, that the great journalist and
philosopher of the century, is to lec
ture in Bellefonte, on January 25th,
1870. This is right ; but there is one
sentence in the statement, as publish
ed in the Watchman, to which we ob
ject. It reads thus :
"The fame of Horace Greely is co
" extensive with the English language,
" and though, one of the most erratic,
"he is certainly one of the most re
' • markable men of the age."
How our friend Brainard could be in
duced to sign such a mixture of sense
and nonsense, of truth and falsehood,
of positive assertions, with as positive
contradictions, all in the same sentence,
we cannot imagine.
The fame of Horace Greeley is not
only "co-extensive with the English
language;" but co-extensive with all
languages, people's and tongues, and
while it may be true that Mr. Greeley
is not infallible, the assertion that ha
is"one of the most erratic"men of the
age,is basely and meanlyfalse, because
promulgated, not ignorantly, but with
the bright and effulgent rays of the light
of the 19th century shining upon the
very paper upon which it was written,
proclaiming Horace Greeley` one of the
most remarkable men of the age."
We are sorry our friend Drainard
has committed himself to such an opin
ion of Horace Greeley, and signed his
name to such a jumble of words,sense,
nonsense, "erratic" rhetoric, misera
ble logic and Democratic hotchpotch.
We hope, however, he may be more
careful in the future, and notlet Furey
pull the wool over'his eyeS for the pur
pose of stabbing the reputation of Mr.
We hope that Everybody will come
and hear Horace Greeley, and satisfy
themselves that he is not only the
greatest journalist, but the greatest
man in America to-day.
