" know of no mode in which a loyal citi
zon may so well demonstrate his devotion to
hm country a: by sustaining the Flag the
Constitution and the Union, under all circum
Revs. Henry Ward Beechar and Ste
phen H. Tyng on the Situation.
These two distinguished clergymen
were both invited to attend the Sol
diers' and Sailors' Union Convention,
to be held at Cleveland on the 17th.
They both replied that they were un
able to attend, but they heartily wish
it success, and not only- it but all other
conventions whose object is the restor
ation of all the States lately in rebel
lion to their federal relations.
We have only room for a few ex
tracts from the letters of these gentle
men. Henry Ward Beecher says :
"Had the loyal Senators and Repre
sentatives of Tennessee been admitted
at once on the assembling of Congress,
and, in moderate succession, Arkansas,
Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina and
Virginia, the public mind of the South
would have been far more than
it is; and those States which lingered
on probation to the last would have
been under a more salutary influence
to good conduct than if a dozen ar
mies watched over them."
The common sense of this assertion
is very apparent. Everybody knows
that the present difficulty with the
South was occasioned by Congress re
fusing the people thereof their right
under the Constituffon, of representa
tion in Congress. And as Mr. Beecher
further says : "Every month that we
delay this healthful step complicates
the ease; The excluded population,
enough unsettled before, grow more
irritable!" And such is the case and
will be, so long as the South is unrep
resented. Ho further says, very truth
fully, too :
"To keep a half score of States under
federal authority, but without national
ties and responsibilities; to oblige the
central authority to govern half the
territory of the Union by federal civil
officers and by the army, is a policy
not only uncongenial to our ideas and
principles, but pre-eminently danger
ous to the spirit of our government.
However humane the ends sought and
the motives, it is in fact, a course of
instruction, preparing our government
to be despotic, and familiarizing the
people to a stretch of authority which
can never be other than dangerous to
Then speaking of the idea that some
have that if admitted - to Congress the
Southern Senators and Representatives
will coalesce with Northern Democrats,
and rule the country, ho says :
"Is this nation, then, to remain dis
membered to serve the ends of parties ?
Have we /earned no wisdom by the
history of the last ten years, in.which
just this course of sacrificing I he nation
to the exigencies of parties plunged us
into rebellion and war ?"
'Ho refutes the assumption that the
South will rule tho country, by draw
ing a contrast between the North and
the South, in which he shows the For
noes of tho South and the richness of the
North, the difference in population and
in industry and he adds that if the
South does rise to the control of the
government it will bo "because tho
North, demoralized by prosperity, and
besotted by groveling interests, refusea
to discharge its share of political duty."
In such a case he says, "the South not
only will control the government, but
it ought to do it !"
Ho then speaks in reference to the
negro, and says that "the negro is part
and parcel of Southern society. Ile
cannot be prosperous while it is un
prospered. Its evils will rebound upon
him." The restoration of the South to
amicable relations with the North, he
thinks will rebound to the benefit of
the freedmen. He says, "whether we
regard the whole nation, or any sec
tion of it, or any class of it, the first
demand of our times is entire onion."
He appeals to all to bary their sec
tional animosities and all strifes and
hatreds, for if not the great chasm
which rebellion made will grow deeper
and stretch wider.
Rev. Dr. Tyng takes the practical
Christian view of the subject. This is
the view all Christians should take of
it, and thereby seek to allay the
mosities and hatreds which we of the
North bear towards our brethren of
the South. They have offended but
the mission of every good man is to
spread the seeds of peace and good
will among men. Hero is what Rev.
Dr, Tyng replies in his letter to the
soldiers' and Sailors' invitation
have read with gloat delight Mr.
Beechpr's unanswerable letter, and de,.
sire to thank him for the fidelity alio pow
er with which he has accomplished so
good a work. I shall honor the sol
diors and sailors of the nation if they
give their cordial and united support
to the sound and healthful principles
which he proclaims and sustains. It
will be a glorious result, if the people
of the land unite with them in the uni
versal determination, that union, lib
erty and generous interpretation and
action shall and all the controversies
of the day in which we live, in the im
mediate and complete reconstruction
and combined establishment of our
whole nation as one harmonious and
prospering people
"That a conquering army should de
sire this, seems but accordant with the
spirit of a generous victor. That they
should assemble in a peaceful fellow
ship to avow and to promote it, is but
exorcising their rights as citizens, and
fulfilling their obligations as intelligent
leaders of their fellow men; and that
ministers of a religion of peace and good
will should sustain and encourage a pur
pose and movement so honorable to the
nation, would appear to be the plainest
dictate of duty in the position which
they Fustain, and relate us to the peo
ple among whom they dwell.
"I cannot refuse, therefore, to ap
prove and indorse the meeting which
is proposed, or the platform on which
it avows itself to stand.
Your friend and servant, with much
regard, "STEPHEN 11. TTrio."
Look Out for Thaddeus.
Thaddeus Stevens, in his speech at
Bedford several days ago, made use of
the following language. He is now
stating what he shall do at the next
session of Congress. The last Con
gress, ho admits, was derelict in somo
things, and hi) is determined at the
next session to make his followers go
the whole hog. The last Congress re
fused to consider his proposition that
the Southern States were "conquered
provinces," and at the next session
Thad is going to rule or fight. Read
what he says he wants, and what he
says of the Southern States of this
"They are more territories conquer
ed by our arms from the 'Confederate
States of America.'"
He thus acknowledges that the Con
federate States, so called, were really a
distinct and separate nation—an idea
repti - gniiiit to the mind of every true
American citizen, but one which shows
conclusively the. Disunion feelings of
the author, in whose wake tho blind so
eagerly follow. If such a sentiment as
the above is not treasonable, what is 7
But now let us see what ho wants
done with his "territories :"
"Why then did not Congress give
them either territorial governments or
enabling acts so that they could form
State governments, and come into the
Union with constitutions securing equal
and impartial rights to every human be
ing within their limits 1"
There is the whole of Thad's the
ory in a nut shell. Tie admits that the
Southern States are out of. the Union,
for why did he want Congress to give
them "territorial governments," when
under the Constitution each State must
have a regular State government.—
Here is just where Stevens and Sum
ner differed with President Lincoln
and it is just where they differ to-day
with President Johnson. President
Lincoln wanted to establish a State
Government for Louisiana and the oth
er States as they wheeled into the
Union, but the Radicals wanted terri
torial governments or ennabling acts,
so that they would force them to put
a clause in each of their constitutions
"securing equal and impartial rights
to every human being within their
limits." This means, of course, giving
the right to vote and hold office to the
black man as well as the white. We
can't say whether he meant the wo
men and children or not, but It is posi
tive ho meant the negro.
Now, here is what he did do at the
last session of Congress and what he
will do at the next, unless wo send
men who will not be led like sheep by
their shearers:
"Early in the session I introduced a
bill to give them enabling acts. It
met with but little countenance. Tho
Republican mind had not examined
and was not ready to accept so radical
a proposition. And so the session was
spent in inaction. You may find my
proposition, together with the reasons
for it, in the last number of the Con
gressional Globe. I shall renew it at
the next session."
Voters, you have your choice—to
vote for men who are willing to follow
a man who utters such-sentiments, or
to vote against them. Vote for a Re
publican and you vote to sustain Thad
Stevens in his efforts to keep a divided
Union; vote for a Union man and
you vote to oppose him.
Senator Cowan Serenaded.
The distinguished son4tor, Ifon. Ed
gar Cowan, from Pennsylvania, arri
ved in this place, on Wednesday even
ing-, September sth, aud remained at
the Exchange Hotel over night, pre
paratory to going to Bedford. When
it was known that ho bad arrived, a
party of his friends prepared to gillp
him a reception, and secured the Hun
tingdon Cornet Band, Which appeared
in front of the Exchange about half
past eight and gave him a serenade.
The Hon. Edgar Cowan was then in
troduced to the audience, which Was
very largo, by Mr. Sewell Stewart.
Mr. Cowan entered into a speech at
once, and after thanking the people
for the demonstraton; be referred to
his course in Congress, and he asked
why he was so much abused. When
he went into Congress he took an oath
to preseive and defend the Constitu
tion ; he defended it while there and
he is still defending it. When the war
ended, the question arose what was to
be done; ho referred to his Constitu
tion and the laws of his country, and
seeing there what was to be done he
had nothing more to do than to sup
port it; and that was just what the
President was doing. He then show
ed who were with the President, and
after mentioning the majority of Lin
coln's advisers, ho said that ho had
conversed with Gees. Grant, and Sher
man, and Admiral Farragut and they
all doomed the President right and
were supporting him heart and soul.
In the same connection he also men
tioned Generals Meade and Hancock
as supporting the President, while
Generals Burnside and Butler were
supporting the Radicals. He said he
was in good company, and intimated
that certain small fellows had nothing
to say when such men as Grant sup
ported the President.
Ile then referred to the negro ques
tion, and said that when President
Lincoln was reorganizing tho State of
Louisiana he was opposed by the Rad
icals because he would not force negro
suffrage upon the people of that State.
Negro suffrage, he said, is what the
Radicals wanted and he appealed to
those present, whether Republicans
or Democrats, that if they opposed
this to be careful how they voted.
Senator Cowan spoke about three
quarters of an hour, and his plain and
sensible remarks wore listened to with
mar.ifest interest by the auditors. Ho
has a strong voice and is a very forci
ble talker. There was nothing "hifa
lutin" in his language, but his whole
discourse bore the character of a plain
talk and not a political harangue. He
was not abusive of any body, and
his speech in this particular was a
larlrad_enntrast to those made 4 the
recent Geary meeting in this place.
President Johnson, Gen. Grant, Ad
miral, Farragut, Secretary Seward,
and others, were received at St. Louis,
by thousands of the loyal people on
Saturday the Bth inst.. In the evening
the President addressed the crowds as
follows :
FELLOW CITIZENS •—ln beitp* 6 intro
duced to you to-night, it is not for the
purpose of making a speech. It is true
I am proud to meet so many of my
fellow citizens hero on this occasion,
and under the favorable circumstan
ces that I do. (Cries, !lbw aboutour
British subjecs.") We will attend to
John Bull after a while—so far as that
is concerned. I have just stated that
I am not hero for the purpose of task
ing a speech,but after being Introduced
simply to tender my cordial thanks for
the welcome you have given to mo in
your midst. (A voice—" Ten thousand
will come.") Thank you, I wish
it was in my power to address you
under favorable circumstances upon
some of the questions that agitate and
distract the public mind at this time ;
questions which have grown out of the
fiery ordeal that we have passed
through, and which I think as impor
tant as those we have just passed •by,
although the time has come when it
seems to me that all ought to be pre
pared for peace. Tho rebellion being
suppressed, and the-shedding of blood
being stopped, the sacrifice of life be
ing suspended and stayed, it seems the
time has arrived when you should
have peace, when the Weeding arteries
should bo tied up. (A. voice—J-New.
Orleans.") Go on, perhaps if you had
a word or two on the subject of Now
Orleans, you might understand more
about it than you do [laughter], and if
you will go back and ascertain the
cause of the riot at Now Orleans, per-
Imps you would not be so prompt in
calling out New Orleans. If you will
take pp the riot at New Orleans, and
trace it back to its source, or to its
immediate cause, you will find out
who was responsible for the blood that
was shed there. If you will take up
the riot at New Orleans and trace it
back to the Radical Congress, [cheers
and cries of Bully,"] you will find that
the riot at New Orleans was substan—
tially planned. If you will take all the
proceedings in their caucuses, you will
understand that they then know
(cheers,) that a Convention was to be
called, which was extinct by its power
having expired, and the intention was
that a now government was to be or
ganized, and' in the organization of
that government the intention was to
enfranchise ono portion of the popula
tion, called the colored population,who
had just been emancipated, and at the
same time disfranchise white men.
When you deign to talk about New
Orleans (confusion) you ought to un
derstand what you are talking about.
When you read the speeches that wore
made, or take up the facts on the Fri
day and Saturday before that Conven
tion sat, you will there find that
speeches wore made incendiary in their
character, exciting that portion of the
population—the black population—to
arm themselves and
,prepare for the
shedding of blood. (A. voice—"that's
so," and cheers.) You will find that
that Convention did assemble in vio
lation of law, and the intention of that
Convention was to supercede the re
cognized authorities in the State gov
ernment of Louisiana, which had boon
recognized by the government of the
United States, and every man engaged
in that rebellion, in that Convention,
with the intention of superseding and
upturning the civil government which
had been recognized by the govern
ment of the United States, I say that
ho was a traitor to the Constitution of
the United States [cheers], and hence
you find that another rebellion was
commenced, having its origin in - the
Radical Congress. These men were
to go there, a government was to be
organized, and the ono in existence in
Louisiana was to be superseded, set
aside, and overthrown. You talk
to me about Now Orleans, and there
the question was to come up when
they had established their government,
a question of political powers, which
of the two government, was to be re
cognized—a now governments inaugu
rated under this defunct Convention,
set up in violation of law and without
the will of the people. Then, when
they had established their government
and extended a universal and impar
tial franchise, as they called it, to this
colored population—then this Radical
Congress was to determine that a gov
ernment established on negro votes
was to be the government of Loisiana.
[Voice—"Never," cheers and cries of
"Hurrah for Andy.''] So much for the
New Orleans riots, and there was the
cause and the origin of blood that was
shed, and every drop of blood that was
shed is upon their skirts and they are
responsible for it. I could test this
thing a little closer, but will not do it
here to night; but when you talk
about New Orleans and talk about the
causes and consequences that resulted
from proceedings of that kind, perhaps
as I have been introduced hero and
you have provoked questions of this
kind, though it does not provoke me, I
will toll you a few wholesome things
that have been. done by this Radical
Congress, [cheers] in connection with
Now Orleans and the extension of the
elective franchise. I know that I have
been traduced and abused; I know it
has come in advance of me hero, as
elsewhere, that 1 have attempted to
exercise an arbitarypower in roe's in_-.
twat - Weirtrintende - d - tiiT eti- ems
upon the government [cheers], that I
had exercised that power, [cries "Bul
ly for you,"] that I had abandoned
the party that elected me, and that I
was a traitor (cheers,) because I exer
cised the veto power in attempting and
did arrest for a time a bill that was
called a "Freedman's Bureau Bill."
Yes, that I was a traitor, and I have
been traduced; I have been slandered;
L have been maligned. Now, my
countrymen, hero to-night, it is. very
easy to indulge in epithets, it is easy
to calla man Judas, and cry out trai
ls tor, but when he is called upon to give
arguments and facts, he is very often
found wanting. Judas Iscariot—Judas.
There was a Judas and ho was ono of
the twelve appostles. The twelve ap
pestles had a Christ. HI have played
the Judas who has been my Christ
that I have played the Judas with ?
Was it Thad Stevens? Wasit Wendell
Phillips ? Was it Charles Sumner ?
(Hisses and cheers.) These are the
men that stop and compare themselves
with the Saviour, and everybody that
differs with them in opinion, and to try
, to stay and arrest their diabolical and
nefarious policy is to be denounced as
a Judas. ("Hurrah far ANDY !" and
cheers.) In the days when there was
a Christ, while there was a Judas wore
there unbelievers—yes, while there
were Judases, there were unbelievers
, yes, oh yes, unbelievers in Christ, men
viho persecuted and slandered and
brought Him before Pontius Pilate,
and preferred charges and condemned
and put Him to death on the cross, to
satisfy unbelievers; and this same per
scouting, diabolical, and nefarious clan
to-day, who would persecute and shed
blood of innocent men to carry out
their purposes. [Cheers.] But let and
tell you, lot me give you a few words
hero tonight. But a short time since
I heard some one say in the crowd
that we had a Moses. (Laughter.) Yes
there is a Moses, and I know some
times it has been said that I have said
I would be the Moses of the colored
man (cries of "Never !" and cheers.)
Why I have labored as much in the
cause of emancipation es any other
mortal man living; but while I have
striven to emancipate the colored man
I have felt and now feel that wo have
a great many white Mon that want
emancipation. There is a set amongst
you that have got shackels on their
limbs, and are as much under the heel
and control of their masters as the
colored man that was emancipated. I
call upon you here tonight as freemen
as men to favor the emancipation of
the white man, as well as the petered
ones. I have been in favor of ernanci ,
pation. I have nothing to disguise
about that. I have tried to do as much
and have done as much, and when
they talk about Moses and the colored
man being led into the promised land,
whore is the land that this clan pro
poses to lead them into ? When we
talk about taking them out from
among the white population and send,
fag them to ether climes, what is it
they propose ? Why it is to give us a
Freedmen's Bureau, and after •giving
us a Freedmen's Rureau, what then ?
Why, hero in the South it, is not nec

case might be, paid all the expense of

South, bringing them into market
without any profit on them, while
these owners put it all into their pock
This was their condition before the
emancipation; this was their condition
before we talked about their Moses.—
I ask your attention. Let me call
your attention to one single fact, the
Freedman's Bureau. Slavery was an
accursed institution until emancipation
took place. It was an accursed, insti
tution while ono sot of mon worked
them and got the profits; but• after
emancipation took place they gave us
the Freedman's Bureau; they gave us
their agents to go to overy county,
every township, to every school district
in the United States, especially
the South. They gave us twelve mil
lion of dollars and placed the power in
the hands of the Executive, who was
to work this machinery with the army
brought to his aid, and to sustain it.—
Then let us run it with twelve millions
as a beginning, and in the end receive
fifty or sixty millions, as the case may
be, and let us work the four millions
of slaves. In fine, the Freedman's Bu
reau was a proposition to transfer four
millions of slaves in the United States
from their original owners to a new
set of taskmasters. (Voice, "Never,"
and cheers.) I have been laboring for
years to emancipate them, and then I
was opposed to seeing them transfer
red to a new set of task-masters to be',
worked with more rigor than they had
been worked heretofore. (Cheers.)—
Yes, under this new system, they
would work the slaves and call on the
government to bear all the expenses,
and if there were any profits loft, why
they would pocket them. While you,
the people, must pay the expense of
running the machine out of your own
pockets, while they get the profits of it.
The President is. wrong because he
vetoed the Freedman's Bureau Bill,
and all this because he chose to exer
cise the veto power; ho committed a
high offense, and therefore ought to be
impeached. [A voice, "Never."] Yes
—yes, they aro ready to impeach him,
(a voice; "Lot them try it,") and if
they wore satisfied they had the next
Congress by a decided majority as this,
upon some pretext or other they would
vacate the executive depam:&

Let inc call the• soldiers' attention
to this immaculate Congress, that
could make war upon the Executive
because he stands upon the Constitu
tion, and vindicates the rights of the
people, exercising the veto 'power in
their behalf; because ha dared to do
this", they can clamor and talk about
impeachment. Let me ask you to go
back into my history of legislation,
and even when Governor of a State,
let . me ask if there is a man hero to
night, who, in the dark days of Know
Nothingism stood and battled more for
the right? [Voice—"Good" and
cheers.] It has been my peculiar mis
fortune to have fierce opposition, be
cause I have always struck my blows
direct and fought with right and the
Constitution on my side. [Cheers.]—
Yes, here was a Neutrality Law. I
was sworn to support the Constitution
and see that the law was faithfully ex
ecuted. ["Why didn't you do it?"]—
The law was executed, and because it
was executed thee they raised a clam
or and tried to make an appeal to the
foreigners, and especially the Fenians,
and what did they do ? They intro
duced a bill to tickle and play with the
fancy, intending to repeal the law, and
at the same time making it worse, and
then left the law just where it is.—
[Voice—"That's so.] They know that
whenever a law was presented to me,
proper in its provisions, ameliorating
and softening the rigors of the present
law, that it would meet my hearty ap
probation, but as they were pretty
well broken down and losing public
confidence at the heels of the session,
they found that they must do some
thing, and hence what they did do,
they pretended to do something for
the soldiers. Then to make them the
peculiar friends and favorites of the
soldier, they came forward and pro
pose to do—what? Why, we will
give the soldiers fifty dollars bounty—
your attention to this—if ho has serv
ed two years, and ono hundred dollars
if ho has served three years. Now,
mark you, the colored man that served
two years can get his one hundred
dollars bounty, but the white man
must Servo three before he can get hie;
(cheers); but this is not the point.—
While they were tickling and attempt
ing to please soldiers by giving them
three hundred dollars for two years'
service, they took into their heads to
give somebody else something (laugh
ter)' and they voted themselves, not
$5O for two years' service—(Your at
tention, I want to make a lodgment
in your minds of the facts, because I
want to put the nail in, and having
put it in, I want to clinch it on the
other side)—the bravo boy, the patri
otic young man who followed his gal,
Jant officers, slept on the tented geld,
and porilkal his life, and shed his
blood, and left his limbs behind him,
arid came home mangled and maimed,
he can get fifty dollars bounty, if he
has served two years, but Om members
of Congress, who never smelt gunpow
der, can got four thousand dollars ex
ta a pay. (Great cheering.) This is a
faint picture my countrymen of what
has transpired. [A voice—"stick to
that question."] Fellow-citizens you
