THE HENTINGDON GLOBE, A DEMOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL, DEVOTED
Huntingdon, Wednesday, Oct. 29, 1856
k'r rigAni:TilVio r.. 4. 11 10 (00441
The Charge of Disu.nionism Fastened up-
on the Traitors.
The overwhelming , democratic triumphs in
Pennsylvania and Indiana, and the large
democratic gains in Ohio, which partake of
the character of a general victory,, may in
part be attributed to that inherent love for
the' Union 'with the masses, the• depth and
strength of which becomes more and more
apparent as danger threatens to weaken its
power or affect its duration. When our glo
rious confederacy has been imperilled by foes
within or without, when the industrial inter
ests of the country have - been paralyzed by
the machinations of political sharpers and
gamblers, and when attempts have been made
by bigots and fanatics to destroy those insti
tutions upon which the Union has so proudly
and so securely
..rested for more than three
quarters of a century, the people have always
turned, and never turned in vain, to the dem
oCiatic party. It . is
possible that a
very large number of the people of the north
ern States might' have been deceived for a
few months longer with the catching but hy
pocritical generalities of black republicanism.
It is barely possible that many very worthy
people could have been kept for several weeks
—say until after the election—in a state of
political phrensy and convenient darkness by
the cry of free soil, free speech, free love, and
Fremont. It is barely possible that the fraud
Kon bleeding dupes in the name of bleeding
ansas might have been kept up until ex-
Governor Reeder had gathered a rich harvest
from his land speculations. But when it be
came apparent to the dullest comprehension
that all the last six months noise and talk,
and fury and phrensy, about border-ruffian
ism, free speech, northern rights, southern
aggressions, destroying a sacred compact, &c.,
were but the workings of the old leaven of
aholitionism, with all its infidelity, its revo
lutionary purposes, and its malignant hatred
of the white race, the daily desertions from
the black republican ranks became so large
as to fill the leaders with apprehension and.
alarm. The New York Herald assured its
-readers that the Fremonters were the only
true, conservative, Union-loving, constitu
tion-supporting party in the field. The same
assurance was given by the New York Times.
Greeley declared, in a spirit of great'mag
nanimity, that in this special instance the
statements of the • Herald and Times might
be credited. Mr. Speaker Banks, in his fa
mous Wall street speech, went a few steps
further. According to his own showing, he
stood with Webster in his veneration and ad
miration of the federal constitution. He
stood with Thichanan in the enforcement of
those great conservative principles by which
fanaticism is robbed of its proscriptive ter
rors, and our free institutions preserved from
the excesses of injudicious friends and the
assaults of open enemies. _He stood with
Clay in his - love for the Union. It is true
thathe - once exclaimed, "let the Union slide;"
but the exclamation was simply a figure of
speech, and was merely designed to convey
the idea that he was in- favor of the Union
sliding—sliding perpetually—on its consti
tutional axis I And last of all, and more
than all, he told his astonished audience' that
he stood with Mr. Douglas upon the great
platform of " popular sovereignty !"
But this impudent attempt of the black.
republicans, at the eleventh hour, to change
front and to repudiate their own acts and
their own sentiments was of no avail, and
will be of no. avail. Their treasonable de
signs cannot_be ea,ced. from the public offi
cial record. There are now filed away in the
office of the Clerk of the federal liousecif
Representatives no less than seven petitions,
signed by three hundred and twenty-nine cit
izens pf the States of New Hampshire, Rhdde
Island,. New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio,'
praying for a dissolution of the Union. These
,petitions, of which the folloWing is an exact
copy, were presented in the House of Repre
sentatives on the 14th of August last by lion.
Joshua R. Giddings, of Ohio:
The love of the Fremonters for the Constitu
tion and the Union as shown by their pe
titions to Congress.
[The person to whom this petition is trans
mittedis earnestly requested to circulate it
for signatures of the men and the women in
his town, and see that it is speedily sent to
either Senators WILSON, lIALE, WADE,
SEWARD, and - FESSENDEN, or to Messrs.
GIDDINGS, BURLINGAME, COLLAME.R,
CAMPBELL, or any other SUITABLE rep
resentative at Washington.]
To the Senate and House of Representatives
of the United States:
The undersigned, citizens and inhabitants
of , State of , respectfully sub
mit to Congress :
That as, in the nature 'of things, antago
nistical principles, interests, pursuits, and in
stitutions can never unite :
That an experience of more than three
score years having demonstrated that there
can be no real Union between the North and
South, but, on the contrary,' ever-increasing
alienation and strife, at the imminent hazard
of civil war, in consequence of their conflict
ing_ views in relation to freedom and slavery:
That the South, having declared it to be
not only her, right and purpose tneternize her
slave system where it now exists, but to ex
tend it over all the Territories that now be
long or may hereafter be annexed to the:re
publie; come what may ; and having outlawed
from her sell the entire free colored popula
tion of rthe North, made it perilous for any
northern white citizen to exercise his consti
tutional right„of freedom of speech in that
section of the country, and even in the na
tional capital, and, proclaimed her hostility
to all free institutions universally:
We,•therefore,l believe that the time has
come for a new arrangement of elements:So
hostile,- of interests so irreconcilable;! of :in
stitutions se incongruous ;• and.we.earnestly
requeSt Congress, at its - present session, 'to
take such initiatory measures for the speedy,
peaceful, , and equitable dissolution of. the ex
isting. Union as the exigencies of the case re
quire,; leaving the South to depend upon-her
own resources,, and to take all the responsi
bility-in the. maintenance of her slave sys
tem, ,and ; , the. North to organize an independent
government in accordance with her own ideas
of justice and the rights of man.
We venture to assert, without fear of con
tradiction, that every -.one of the three hun
dred and twenty-nine persons who signed the
above petition is,now an open and an ardent
supporter of John C. Fremont, the black re
publican candidate for the presidency. The
New York Tribune may endeavor to crawl
out of the , infamous difficulty by asserting
that Giddingi is an abolitionist of the black
est shadaand fiercest kind, and then falsely
adding, as in the case of Garrison and Wen
dell Phillips, that the abolition party proper
are the "inflexible opponents" of Mr. Fre
mont. But was not Mr. Giddings a delegate
,to the convention that nominated Mr. Fre
mont for the presidency? Did he not vote
for that nomination ? Has he not up to this
very moment supported that noininatton with
all that ruffianly zeal for which he is noted
in . and out of Congress ? Would ho utter one
.word in favor of that nomination if he enter
tained the remotest suspicion that Fremont's
Union sentiments and slavery sentiments dif
fered in the slightest degree from his own?
It would seem from the above that Senators
Wilson, Hale, Wade, Seward, and Fessenden,
and Representatives Burlingame, Coilamer,
and Campbell, were willing to act as god
fathers to these • infamous petitions. Are
they, too, abolitionists of the Boston Libera
tor school, and the "inflexible opponents" of
John C. Fremont? Is it not known to the
whole country that all these persons are now
actively engaged with the black republicans
in the • pending presidential campaign—the
open, zealous, boisterous canvassers for Fre
mont 2 Washington Union:
Toni Corwin on the Dangers of the
In his speech at Carthage, Mr. Corwin's
allusion to the dangers which environ the
Republic and the Union, in the present
Presidential strife, was very touching. The
following extract is worthy of perusal, espe
cially by those who affect idle indifference,
if not contempt, of all intimations of peril to
the Union. Mr. Corwin said :
"I am not electioneering, gentlemen, for
anybody whatever, and whoever is elected I
shall acknowledge him as President of the
United States, and aid him in carrying on
the legitimate purposes of his government ;
but I do say that at no period in the history
of this Republic since peace and tranquility
were restored to its borders, after the terrible
revolutionary struggle, has there been so
much frightful apprehension in the minds of
the American people, of some vague and en
tire disruption of the bonds which hold this
"Does it not become us to consider how
we will answer to that remote posterity who
we may fancy holding up their hands to us
a thousand years in the future, and appealing
to us by the blood of our fathers, if you will
aid an act which by any possibility, may im
peril the existence of this Republic ! Give
no heed to the men who sneer when you tell
them the Republic may be destroyed—to the
men who sneer at the power of the South ;
give no heed when they say the North is in
a majority, and may do as it pleases I If
this alienation of feeling goes on, not a man
is there acquainted with the history of the
past transactions of mankind but will tell
you it shall be impossible to avoid the conflict
of arms. Men now-a-days are too free in
spirit to hear oppression, real or imaginary.
" They will fight. You may trample on
them if you will, but if they believe them
selves, however erroneously, to be injured,
they will bring you to a conflict, and then
that *comes, you have heard the death knell
of this Republic and of your Constitution.
Separate these States once, , and you may
again have a constitution, but it will not be
the one under which you now live. It will
be a different government, for the govern
ment that then comes will emerge from the
blood, and the smoke, and the conflict of bat
tle. The strong man that shall lead his
army to victory will be no Washington, for
it is not we believe, in the providence of God
to send another such as he."
In the same speech Mr. CORWIN, .thus de
livered his opinion Of Jon's' C. FREMONT :
"As to CoT. Fremont, all I have to say of
hiin is thathe has no antecedents. (A laugh.)
I believe he is an intelligent man, a gentle
man in his manners, and I would be willing,
under other circumstances, to see him elected
to the office ; but he is not the man I want in
these times of peril, so eloquently described
by Mr. Harrison. Ido not want a man who
has never been at the helm, and tried the mo
tion of the ship. I want a man who has navi
gated the same ship amid the shoals and
breakers, and brought her safe and proud
and high into haven."
We find the subjoined paragraph in an ex
change paper which places an important
matter on its true ground. Read it atten
THE SLAVERY" EXTENSION FALSEHOOD.—
The charge of slavery extension cannot be
sustained• by fact or by argument against
the Deinocratic party. The platform adop
ted at Cincinnati does not contain a line, a
word, or a letter,• which pledgeS the Demo
cratic party of the' country to the extension
of slavery beyond its present. limits. The
candidates of that convehtion' have not writ
ten or uttered a syllable • in, of such a
pOlicy.. Democracy" remain upon the
same ground assumed by them upon the ac
luisition of California and New Mexico,
maintained in 1848 ; sustained in 1852, and
then endorsed by the Whig national conven
tion, to wit—the principle of non-intervention,
and the policy of non-intelference, by Congress,
with slavery in the States Or Territories of the
Union. The Democracy do not propose to
depart, and they are not to be driven from
this position, Whatever in ultra organ, North
or South, may declare to the contrary.
Whenever the affairs of Kansas shall be
brought to a settlement, it will be through
the instrumentality of the people of that
Territory, and not by the dictation of citizens
of Missouri or Massachusetts ; and wholly in
accordance with the doctrines of the Demo

The Next Congress
Probably the most gratifying result of the
recent election throughout the United States,
says 'the Harrisburg Patriot, is the fact that
the next Congress will undoubtedly be Dem
ocratic. 'Already the Democratic gains
amount to 44, which renders the political
complexion of the next House certain, and
the probability is that the Democratic major
ity will be large. The Senate .will remain
as at present. This fact, coupled with the
certainty of Mr. Buchanan's election, will be
gratifying to the whole country. The fac
dons. which control the present House of Rep
resentatives have become a curse to the coun
try, and the people are tired of seeing our
national halls of legislation made the theatre
for the propagation of treasonable doctrines
and sectional agitation. Like all popular.er
rors, the Republican delusion will be short
lived, and the destinies of the country will
once more be placed in the hands of men
who are actuated by patriotic motives and
hold political principles wide enough to em
brace the whole American Union.
It is a pleasure to consider, that while the
wildest ideas are germinated in our free coun
try, and the most venal passions are some
times encouraged by the designing until they
grow into monstrosities, yet the reason and
reflection of the people are always certain to
check them ere they become dangerous. It
will be thus with the dark god of Abolition
ism. For a time it threatened to grow to
such a magnitude as to overshadow one half
of our country, but the giant Democracy has
placed his foot upon the neck of the prostrate
deity, and it will writhe in the dust until it
When James Buchanan is inaugurated
President of the United States, on the 4th
day of March, 1857, he will find himself sur
rounded by men who sympathise with him
on all great political questions, and who will
aid him in quelling the jealousies that have
arisen in our land. The time is not far dis
tant when the bitterness which now exists
between different sections of the Union will
vanish, and our whole country will be har
monious and all our people happy. For this
great result the Democratic party strives, and
its invincible power will accomplish it. •

A VALUABLE Wonx.—" Next to having something- to eat
is having it cooked in a style fit to be eaten. Every house
keeper does not understand this art, and, probably, only
for want of a little elementary teaching. This want is
easily supplied, for T. B. Peterson has just published Mrs.
Widditield's Cook Book, in which the experience of that
celebrated person in this line, is given so clearly and with
such precise details that any housekeeper of sufficient ca
pacity to undertake the management of household affairs
can make herself an accomplished caterer for the table
without serving an apprenticeship to the business. The
book is published in one volume, the typography good and
paper excellent, with as much real useful information in
the volume as would be worth a dozen times its price. •Get

"The author of this book, Mrs. Hannah Widdifield, was
celebrated, for nearly fifty years, as a cake baker and pas
try cook in Philadelphia. None of the receipts have ever
before been published. They have been tried for years, by
hundreds of Mrs. Widdifield's pupils, many of, whom we
know personally; and we can, therefore, conscientiously
- recommend them. They have, moreover, the advantage of
not being too extravagant, as most receipts in modern cook
books are ; and they also comprise everything relating to
the table, preserving, tzc. We have no hesitation in pro
nonncing it the best work on the subject there is. The
great majority of the cook books, it is well known to the

never tried the receipts they profess to recommend. We
advise all to purchase this one at once."

"All the receipts in this book are now for the

no hesitation in saying, that we believe it will prove, on
examination to all, to be the most useful and popular Cook
Book ever issued. The merit of these receipts is, that they
have been tried for years, and therefore can be recommend
