.OF , citilmstrxr.n,
Delivered in' the House .of RepreSentet
• fives , Februar . tt 18 , 1804 on the
schttion proposing to.regutre proofs of
loyalty front persons claiming payment
for . damages by the rebel raids.
Mr. speaker, my regret that the
gentleman from' Northumberland, Mr,
Purdy, is. not present, is modified by
the fact that whatever may be Said
here-to-night, or at any time during
his absence, by any one, will be faith
fully conveyed to:himi by the record of
the proceedings of this 'body. That
record, sir, of what . hrts passed in, this
discuSsion confirm my
to the correctness of the-gentleman
from Delaware, (Mr. Price,) when he
said that anything, in this' discussion
which :has given it a party aspect ar
ose entirely from the ;remarks of the
gentleman from. NortliuMberland.—
When the gentleman from. Clearfield,
(Mr. Boyer,) very properly made the
inquiry how the standard of loyalty
was to be ascertained, he said nothing
about party, but left the question open,
Whether Cite: .applidation- of a test of
loyalty referred to Republicans or De
mocrats. No sooner, however,: had
the gentleman from - Nortlininberland
stood upon his f6et,
.than, he assumed
that. all the resolutions of the• gentler
man from Washington, were a direct
attack upon the Democratic party.—
Without being able to Choose as good
words as . the gentlemark::frOm.lyash
ington, I will say that men who. excuse
themselves before they are' assailed;
are their own accusers..
What is:there; 'sir, in this resolution;
or this preamble,:.
"Whereas, There is reason to be
lieve that te rebel invasions in Penn
sylvania were, in a great measure,
brought about through the connivance
and by the encouragement of disloyal
persons in our own State '
"And whereas, Claims for damages
done during those , invasions are now
being presented to this Legislature;
"Resolved, That, the select commit
tee to whom are referred all matters
in relation to claims arising-out of al
leged losses from the rebel raids of
1862 and 1863, be instructed to report
as part of their bill—if they report a
bill—a clause requiring the parties
presenting claims to furnish satisfacto
ry proofs of their loyalty."
Is there anything said here about
Democracy or Republicanism ? The
question presented is a great, a glori
ous question, to be put to every man,
and every man ought to meet it, un
der any, circumstances.
The gentleman from Franklin, (Mr.
Sharpe,) gave as a reason why this re
solution should not be -adopted, that a
ve 7ILIALVMPRiii • • •
would be ItepubliCans:' Whot.e do you
Mr..Speaher,:a Republicanhere,
in r.erson or by his representative, be freed •from this test ?-
11Yhere do you find . any Tan claiming
to be freed front this test-Who is a loy
al man ? There is no such man—no
loyal man- fears' this test. No loyal
man will hesitate to eorr. 3 up and meet
the test which will establish his loyalty
so far as, with propriety and emsist
ently with the rules of law, we can es
tablish it. . •
Now, sir, you find no such distinction
in this resolution 'or this preamble.—
It applies to every man without refer
ence fo party. I, am prepared to meet
it, and I doubt not, are prepared .to
meet it; the gentleman from Franklin
doubtless is prepared to !lied it, bon ,
Over and whenever it comes.. I have
net it when I have gone down to that
sad peninsula with a bleeding heart, to

which had ravaged its own country,
proposed as it was Said
,by:the . Gover
nor of this Commonwealtirbut a short
time since, to breathe for a while the
free air of Pennsyltania, such air as
they had never breathed before ? All
around this ball, at that time, and in
this hall—l speak that which I do
knowmen were sneering 'at the ef
forts of the Executive of the State and
the Executive of the nation to repel
the invasion. I heard with My own
ears men who, if in their place, would
now be within the sound of my voice,
members ofthe Legislature of Penn
sylvania, :sneering at these efforts' to
repel invasion, and speaking of it, as
if no invasion existed.., Had they wai
ted but a . few days . they would have
found - that there - was hardly a house
in all this State without its mourners,
because of those wbo died upon. the
battle-field of Gettysburg to repel that
invasion.. Shame upon such men and
upon those. who sustain them I
I am happy here to say, that one of
those men, a member of the Logiala
ture of Pennsylvania, 'was
a gentleman, .now a member of.this
Housewhom I do not sco in his seat,
but who does not- belong to this side
of the House. Honor ho to :Oat: it*n
wherever hels. I speak of him only.
I doubt not that there are many more
like him. Such, I say, is ono test of a
man's loyalty. . •
With some of the sentiments which
were uttered by the gentleman from
Northumberland I can agree. 1 can
agree that true Democracy and loyal
ty aro convertible terms. lean agree
that the Democracy upon which the
institutions of this country are based,
the principle which is to be foundin
every true man, whether he calls him
self Republican or Whig,'or Federal,
or Democrat—l can agree that that
Democracy is a convertible term with
loyalty. But What do you understand
by Democracy De, you 'understand'
that you shall adkere to•theOpinions
of those whom`, as an organized party,
you follow—Men such as those who
denounced Jackson, and Jefferson and
Shunt ? If that is a test.of Derit
- -.•.. em•
tow, and, have followed
.for,•years.-- 7
What L take. to: be the true Dentoeracy
is that - Which reccignites'the Will 'of the
people, expressed by' the majority
through the forms they haVe
and.earried.into execution by the pow
er of the people; through tho officers
who have been choSen by them aceor
ding to. the same forms. When
come up to that Democracy, you will
not. find men assailing their 'Govern
ment because a man has been 'chosen
to conduct its 'affairs, whom they did
not assist to put into authority. You
will find mon coming up to sustain the
Government under all circumstances
in which it may be placed, and espe
cially in the putting dolyn of such
rebellion as we are now witnessing—a
rebellion .which which was reserved for us
alone, • of all the inhabitants that have
dwelt' upon the' face Of the earth to
witness. This is the Democracy of
- Washington; this is the Democracy of
Jackson, and of that old man now tot
tering to - his grave, Lewis Cass; , and
of Douglas, who has gene to his grave',
from this •sairM • platforM of Demoet:acy

many of the:true citizens.of bis.coun-
Now, Isay here—and L•ei'n willing
to have this brought back upon me at
any time—that.,a man who cannot
mune up to this Democracy. and loyal
ty; who cannot. come 'up to this test
'l3e.s•no loyalty about•him. I will not
make.any applic.atione ; let every man
make the application for himself; but
I assert—and I am prepared to meet
it at any time—that my Deinoeracy
and my loyalty,, and, the loyalty that
emanates frorn .principles like these,
is that Which puts - the Government of
the United States above' every goVern'-
nient that is formed under it, that, supreme, that recognizes no
pestilentheresy of State rights which
would lead a 'man' to say, "31y State
calls upon me
.to do se, and I am thera
fore a loyal - man,. whilst I urn obeying
that State, although she may be rebel
ling against .the • Government . of the
nation." . Out upon such loyalty ! Let
us'neVerhear of that in these halis.---
Oh that welad never heard it in this
country !. and those „rivers of ' blood
which have been' pouring dOwn over
every hillside 'and into the 'beautiful
streams of :oar eoantry,. would never
have marred their beauty, and,the bro
ken hearts which aro now to remain
breken:and Worn, the weeping eyes
wficise tears are never to. be stayed Up
on this earth—thoset:ears never would
have been shed, those. hearts. never
Would have been broken. And yet
the gentleman from 'Philadelphia to
night has undertaken to say that the
Administration of this great nation is
disloyal, ' and he hAs Charged, , thiS
blood, and those tears, and this desola
tion, and this sorrow, upon it, when
that Administratie, with thOSe who
sustsin it, stood ap to maintain our
national existence, and begged 'Tor
bearanee through the inaugural=now
praised, be'denounced at the:time it
was issued—when through all that our
President has done, in 'almost, every
public paper that he has issued, the
same tone may be observed—in the
face of all that, the gentleman chargeS
disloyalty upon him; because, in, the
exercise of the power that was given
him under the Constitution, and in
pursuance of his oath, he has endeav
ored to suppress this attempt to deis•
troy this nation and to retard the cha
riot of freedom, geayen l only liOws
how long. ,:
• Let us have right view upon' this
subject. Let, us not test our loyalty
by any such scheme as that •Oftlinse
men who have arisen in the South, and
have poisoned the minds as well as
the hearts of many in the North '‘7l.f.,h
the belief:that this great nation, form
ed by the people, was a mere compact
Of States: Why, when as boy. we
read : our
.cor . :Stitittion, those . of - us
,now gray, we never
looked upon the government of the
United Statesas a compact of States.
Wo read it there, as plain as A, B, C,
that "we, the people," form this great
government and we read there, too,
that we gave to this great goYernment,
as a people, certain rights'and powers
for its preservation; and that in the
exercise of those powers and the main
tenance of those rights this govern
ment of the United States was an,
'WPM° j that when the goyerarnent
nacted laws, throUgh our constituted
authorities and through the forms that
the :people had depUtedi . those laws
were supreme, and • the man was a
traitor and a scoundrel—(those Were
.our sentiments .then; .and they. are
mine uow). 7 who deliberately says,
that any State has rights Which will
pia it aboye the government of the
United States, and that We, as citizens
of this,State or any other State, should
obey the behests of our State to the
i•Verturning of the government-of the
. .
tnited States.
Now, sir, 1 say, as a roeult. of these_
principles; that, coming 'up to this
standard in such a time as this no loy
al man will stop to inquire what are
the causes of the war. There is a war;
there is an effort to destroy the coun
try; there is an effort to bring men who
have had no heart for freedom as long
as:they have been men; to reign over
us. Yea! I use the word reign, for
they look to a monarchy, if not to de
spotic power-. I say that they look to
bringing men of that kind to reign o
ver us under- -those circumstances. I
Say a man has no loyalty who betrays
his heartlessness to his country, by al
leging as. anexcase for that heartless.
ness and disloyalty, that sectionalism
brought on-this War. Suppose it did.
'Why, there has been sectionalism in
this country. since 1820, and we at the
North then, under the protest of the
same base hearts and base minds in
the country, yielded to that sectional
ism. We met it again about 1832, '3
or '4, and we yielded again. Arid the
gentleman who says that that section
alisM was developed by the free States
lias not
. read.-history. aright; he has
read•it with a worse than jaundiced
eye, with a'perv'erted jadgritent.: It is
not for me here to say
.what Other
principles might have* been operating
upon him when he thus interpreted
history as saying that sectionalism it 7
rose at:the Ninth, or was carried into
effect there: Nor will a man who has
any loyalty, when we are standing up
hero against all the power of rebellion,
dishonest, thieving robellion,'Eneor at
the,' efforts that our Goverament in
her wonderful throes is using for the
purpose of sustaining herself. .
The gentleman from, Northumber
land indulged in a.great. deal,of wit, I
suppose—l do not know that it was
not wit—about the taxes and the li
cences which are laid upon us. Why,
is that not constitutional ? Is it not
constitutional-for the Government to
impose such a tax?. It may :be ,hard
that a tax should be iniposed for -the
purpose of raising money to supp ort
the armies, to repel invasion, and to
crush the rebellion. I can understand
that a man who desires that- this-re
bellion may Succeed 'should feel very
much: annoyed; and eXpond his sat.-

You do not find it there. You can

subject of the maintenance of. the
Constitution. If we, do not under
stand what the Constitution means
according to *Se teachings, we are
very dull indeed; becauee we have hid

It has been said somewhere—l think
by Blackstone—that you can judge

hearts 'thrill to-day when we hear it.

what is the sentiment nf these peopte
who stand in this and : :other
States of the North,•and imam .thoSe
who, are sustaining .the. Government
of disloyalty, whilst every day , that
they aro, speaking they issue from
their accredited organs su4t-„ trashy'
articles and doggerel rhymes, as this.
I agree again with my Jriernl. from
Washington in saying . that, this :does
not belong to the mass of the people
of this country. The hearts of the
mass of those who belong to the great
Democratic organization, as they now
term it, are with, their country. But
they have fallen, I *now not how;
they have fallen into the hands of the
Philistines; and men who have been
assailing them for years and years,
now assume to lead;them; and they
lead them to their destruction.
The, gentleman from Northumber
land, when he referred to the
tion of his newspaper, asked who die
appreved of that. Well, now, I will
ask a question before answering, that.
Wfio disapproved of running the -To
ries away in the times of the I?,evolu
Lion 7 Who disapproved of,the Com
mittee of Safety that our fathers got
up,in theßovolution ? It was not the
loyal mon of that day; it was not the,
men whoa went
• out and fought ; for'
tbeir country; .;but it was the ; , men.
whose - sympathies were with grre4t,
Britain that disapproted„of it. ;,, Who
disapproved of the hanging:9f Andre?
Just the men who wanted .Arnold's
treason carried out. do not-say
that: this newspaper office ought' to
have been, mobbed. I know not the
ground upon which it .was donc,, nor
anything of it except,the,fact ;that it
,was done; but I do py that. it_ is, -im
possible fora freo,peoPle, for: loyal
community,to stand, -by and see. and
hoar the enunciation,swhich are made
from mouths find from papers, and, not
feel ,as those things, ought, ta.hp sup :
