a right recognized in the Constitution as abi

Huntingdon, Sept. 11, ISGO.
Robert L. Johnston, Esq.
This gentleman was unanimously
nominated for Congress at Tyrone on
Thursday last by the Democratic Con
fetees of Cambria, Blair, Huntingdon
and Mifflin counties. Mr. Morrel, the
nominee of the Radical party is his op.
.ponent. The great issue of the coun
try is, shall, President Johnson or a
Radical Thad. Stevens Congress be
sustained. - Mr. .U.orrel is with a Rad-
Johnston is W th the .
- Union. 'We shall support Robert L.
Johnston, and everything honorable to
secure his election.
It will be seen by the card of Major
James Steel, that he is an independent
candidate for Associate Judge. Major
Steel is a worthy old gentleman, and
will make a useful Associate Judge. It
is to the interests of the people of the
county that one of the Associate
Judges should reside in town. Samuel
Brooks, Esq., the Democratic nominee
for Associate Judge has declined, leav
ing the contest between Major Steel
independent, and David Clarkson, the
nominee, of the guerrilla faction of the
Badical party. It will be remembered
that David Clarkson was on the Coun
ty Committee last year, and when that
Committee met to put in nomination
Judge Beaver, Mr. Clarkson was a
candidate against him and received
the votes of all the members of the
Committee who were in league with
the guerrillas to defeat Judge Beaver
and othgr soldiers on the Union ticket.
Old Major James Steel is known to al
most every man, woman and child in
the county, and if ho should not be
elected by a handsome majority *0
will be very much disappointed.
THE NECESSARY "Dir."—We have
lately been told repeatedly by Radi

ity—that We Were "sound" during the
war, but we failed to receive the ncc
cmiary-"xlip" inalsli.-un "rat riy7o"--n,
tool of Stevens, Sumner and Co. Now
the qnestion arises' whether a "promi
nent speaker" and a few other war
Deinocrats in this Congressional Dis
trict have received that "dip"—if so,
they must have received it very lately.
The "prominent speaker" in particular
.was very difficult to manage during
the warindced ho had not the confi
deuce of the leaders of the Republican
party—and why ? Simply because in
almost every speech ho made he de
nounced the Republican leaders as re
sponsible to a groat extent for the war.

the same V'qnatics" is a mystery to
thinking men of all parties. 11 7 e have

The Radical Convention.
White and Black Arm in Arm, and
Shoulder to Shoulder
The great mix came off in Philadel
phia last week. The Convention met
on Monday the 3d. The first day tho
delegates from the North and South
looked at each other--talked to each
other, and had a gay time generally
providing a way to keep colored dele
gates out of the Convention. Tho sec
ond day the blood of the master spin
its began to boil—Fred Douglass, mu
latto, from the State of NoW York,
and P. B. Randolph, black, from Lou
isiana, must be kept out. No go—the
darkies had the majority of the Con
vention with them. Negro suffrage
and equality was discussed, and [loth-
ing else. Third day, negro on the
brain again—Fred Douglass and Ran
dolph secured artificial arms to stand
the pressure , of their white friends.—
Negro suffrage was saro to be a plank
in the platform. Fourth day, the Re
publicans became alarmed—they were
afraid to go before the people for elec
tion with negro on their platform—he
must be set aside until the elections
were carried. The people must not
know that they were in favor of negro
equality Douglass, Randolph and
others remonstrated—but the elections
must be carried—so the honest Radi
cals wore persuaded not to press the
issue until after Radical candidates for
office should succeed in deceiving the
people into their support, then the par.
ty would be ready to act more openly,
and give Douglass and his friends all
they asked for—"every right the white
man claims for himself." Fifth clay,
negro on the brain again—the com
mittee agreed to disagree—the North
and the South couldn't come together,
and to-day the great Radical party is
split up into more factions than ever.
There was unanimity in the Conven
tion at times, when the President was
abused by Parson Brownlow or some
other blackguard. All could agree to
stab the Union rather than that 'they
should be denied power. The proceed
ings are published in full in the Phila
delphia, papers and we hope all our
readers may have an opportunity to
' read them and see for themselves what
a "mix" the Republican party is try
ing to force upon the people.

is, and we heard his speech, that he

That, he did make use of language of
the character of the above no one who
was in the Convention will deny.—
What his precise language was, he (Mr.
W.) perhaps knows best, and we will
take pleasure in giving him an oppor
tunity to be heard upon the subject in
our columns. We aro curious to see
the modified speech—let us have it.—
Let us have a "plain statement of the
truth," as can be prepared by Robert
SOLDIERS, VOTE As You FOUGIIT.—
Every man who entered the army
during the rebellion is supposed to
know why he went forth to fight. Ho
was urged to go and fight to preserve
the Government and keep the South
ern States in the Union. This was
what was meant by "the warfor the U.
nion." It had and could have no other
meaning. The rebel States fought to
get out of the Union, but our armies
defeated them and they were thus
kept in the Union. And now, can we
vote to keep them out, at the caprice
if such mon as Sumner and Stevens,
who declare that the States are to
be treated as conquered Territories ?
It is the object of the Radicals to get
a Congress that will keep the States
out until they are willing to do just as
they say. We must thwart their object
by voting for mon who aro willing to
admit loyal Southern Representatives,

GEN. GRANT AND THE, RADICALS.—
The Radicals have come to the conclu
sion that Gen. Grant is not' tho man
for their purpose, and they are writing
of him accordingly. His appearance
with the President on the presenta_
Lion of National Union delegates shock
cd the Radical sensibilities greatly,
and his journeying with the President
is the occasion for letting loose their
pent-up anger. The Washington cor
respondent of a Radical contemporary
says of the General "The Copper
heads have got him, and the Republi•
cans have been badly sold." "A repu
tation has been foolishly built up," de
clares the same scribbler; from which
wo infer that the great soldier of the
UIIiODIS to be decried by the Radic
als as a soldier, because they find that
he is not available for their work as a
partisan. Some of the Radicals prints
which had hoisted the name of Grant
for the Presidency have dropped it,usu
ally without remark ; in other instan
ces avowedly because his relations
with Andrew Johnson are too friendly
to be tolerated. We imagine that
Gen. Grant will survive the catastro
phe, and may even bless his stars for
the deliverance from Radical embra
ces. The soldier who conquered the
enemies of the Union in the field, and
set an example of magnanimity in his
treatment of the vanquished, can hard
ly feel aggrieved by the abuse of the
stay-at home Disunionists. The fight
ing rebel ho might respect; the faction
that would accomplish the end of the
rebellion, while claiming to be monop
olists of loyalty, ho cannot but des
A Remarkable Admission,
Several of the delegates to the ne
gro-equality convention in Philadel
phia, asserted in their speeches that
half the white people of the South
have been oppressed by the rebels and
are hostile to them. Now if they be
lieve this, what have they to fear in
admitting the representatives from
those States to their seats in Con
gress? If one half of the members of
Congress from that section be Radi
cals, they can nullify the votes of the
other half ; and if, as theßadicals con
tinually assort, the northern people
are strongly on their side, they may
have majorities in both houses of the
national legislature, and there can be
no excuse for their violating the Cori
stitution in order to maintain their
power. Not long ago they asserted
that the negroes in the South were
the only loyal people there, and this
was what made it, necessary to have a
military force there to protect them.
These fellows ought to have good
memories or some understanding with
is not the best way to induce even the
stupid donkeys who follow them to
believe what they say.
Andrew John son and the Radicals,
When Tennessee, the State of An—
drew Johnson, was trembling in the
balance and a majority of her people
were. eager to cast their lot with the
seceded States, ho boldly stopped for
ward and, by his character, eloquence
and indomitable courage, saved the
State to the Union, at no slight risk
and danger to his person and proper
ty. The general in command of the
district where the Capital of the State
is, was about to give it up to the ene
my, when Johnson vowed it should
not be done, personally took measures
to defend it, and succeeded. How
many of the Radicals who now vent
their splenish insults against him,
would, in the same way, have braved
the hot pressure of public feeling if
they had been in his place ? Our idea
of a Radical is that he holds and advo
cates the most extreme opinions of the
times when they are popular, and
would have been as ardent a Dis
unionist in Tennessee during the war
as he now is in this State when times
have changed and the South is ready
to take again its old place in the
In_ The Radicals say a great deal
about excluding Southern Representa
tives from Congress until, they give
sufficient guarantees. Now, notwith
standing the oath they will each have
to take to preserwo,protect and defend
the Constitution, there is another
practical view of the subject and that is
why aro not the "Copperheads," so_
called, in the north, also excluded until
they give sufficient guarantees ? And
more, why were they not expelled dur
ing the rebellion by the same Congress
that now unjustly wants to exclude
Southern men ? The people who elect
Southern Representatives are the peo
ple of the same Union that the people of
North are, and they aro entitled to the
same rights under the Constitution.
Let Congress give reasons for not ex
polling those from Congress who sym
pathized with the rebels and then we
can understand them better, now that
they try to exclude Southern men.
riEri'The difference between the Phil
adelphia Convention of the 11th of Au
gust and the Philadelphia Convention
of the 3d of September is, one was all
wisdom, the other was all gas. In the
first, all was harmony, and business
was conducted speedily, while in the
other a bone of contention—negro suf
frage—was thrown in, which almost
split the Convention. The Itadicals of
the North and the Radicals of the
South don't agree on this enhjec6, but
yet some are willing, for the sake of
office or honors, to go with them.
Fred Dougass Speaks.
This celebrated colored orator was
last week at Philflelphia, a delegate
to tho Convention from the State of
New York. If ther3 are any who deny
that negro suffrage is what the Radi
cals want, we advise them to read the
proceedings of that Convention. It
was a fight to get Fred Douglass into
the Clonvention , and it was a fight to
get negro suffrage on the country. In
order to let our readers understand it
more fully we append extracts of a
speech by Fred Douglass, himself to
the New York delegation on Sept.
4th last, to show what he knows his
professed friends in the Convention
are seeking to obtain for him. Read
his speech. It speaks for itself. Wo
take it from the Philadelphia Press, a
strongly Radical paper.
I read the address recently adopted
by a Convention in this city, not ofus,
not with us, not for us, but I found
many things in that address to which
I could assent, and to nothing in that
address could I assent more heartily
than the powerful argument there
made against taxation without repre
sentation. [Laughter and applause.
IT that address had emanated from
a colored convention I think I should
have gone every word of it. It was
only a knowledge of the motives that
inspired it, and the limited constrne•
lion which was to be given it, that led
me at all to roject it.
You will pardon me if I shall, in
coming to this platform, bring with me
an individual that has been associated
with me for the last twenty-five or fif
ty years—the negro. [Laughter.] It
would not ho exactly fair for me to
come here and not remember him or
to bring him with mo. I may say I
appear hero undersome disadvantages,
but at the same time I appear under
greater advantages and responsibilities
than most most other men attending
this convention. I am here as a repro
sentative of a multifarious constituency,
such as perhaps, no other man in the
convention can be said to represent.
In the first place I represent the black
race. There is no mistaking that by
the curl of hair and the flatness of my
nose. In the next place I represent the
white race, and there is no mistaking
that either, in so - inuch so that in the
State of Maine, the Copperhead jour.
nals deny the negro of all credit and
praise for whatever talent I may ex.
hibit, and ascribe it entirely to the
white race to which I belong. [Ap
plause and laughter.] I. Represent the
black race and the white race, and the
black race and the white race combin
eel and so far as my own experience
goes to show it, from the peaceable
manner in which the blood of the two
races have lived together for the last
fifty years in this organism, I have
not the slightest fear of war of races.
[Great laughter.] I represent tho

the things settled is this: that the ne
gro wiefight. We have been accus
tomed to regard hint us a natural born
Christian [laughter], but the late war
has decided that ho can fight. I al-
ways know he would, and the only rea
son why ho has not demonstrated it
before is that the negro is not only a
natural born Christian, but ho is a
philosopher. He is a thinker, and the
only reason he has not fought before is
that he had no reasonable probability
of whipping atiyhody. As soon as he
was ebnvineedqhfre was the slightest
shadow of hope, he was ready to bare
his bosom to the storm of war and to
face the foe with a valor scarcely infe
rior, if inferior at all, to the very best
troops we have marshalled against the
foe. (Applause.) It is settled also
that the negro is to be a part of the
American people; that he is here, and
that no scheme of colonization can be
adopted by which he can be eradicated
from this land. The negro has been
long denied his natural rights—educa
tion denied, the right of learning to

Shall the presence of this black popu
lation in our midst be made a blessing
to themselves, a blessing to us, and a
blessing to the whole country, or a
curse to themselves, a curse to us and
a curse to the whole country ? States
manship has but one answer. It was
- given this morning from the eloquent
lips of Senator Yates. Philanthrophy
has but one answer, and it is given
from a thousand pulpits and a thou
sand platforms to-day. It is this : -"a
thorough and complete incorporation of
this whole black element into the American
body politic ["Good 11—. anything
less than this will prove an utter failure

Our, idea of government is that of
democracy, and that is based on uni
versal suffrage. Great as this country
is, it can't afford to have in its midst
four millions of justly discontented
people. Conciliation with the South
ern leaders may be well. But we must
not forget in our schemes of concilia
tion those who have been our friends,
and remember only our enemies. Shall
it be said that, after the great sacrifi
ces we have made fur the Union, we
make terms of peace by which we ex
alt our enemies and cast down our
friends—enfranchise our enemies and
disfranchise our friends ? God forbid
' that we should.

field to preserve the Union, ho refused
to "change his base" at the beck of

strict honesty, ho has amassed a con-
Biderablo fortune. He is a high coned
gentle Man, intelligent and honest, and
has been connected with the Metho
dist Church for a number of years. In
addition to all this, when the tocsin of
war was soundtid, and the liberties of
his country were imperilled, he was
among the first to respond, and served
with great gallantry and distinction
Such was his popularity at home, that
he raised an entire company in Lewis
