Negro Suffrage the Issue,
There are somo who deny that Ne
gro Suffrage is the issue in the coining
campaign, and there aro some ready
to believe what their leaders assiduous
ly but vainly endeavor to prove. Let
us take up the Amendment which the
Radical Congress says will reconstruct
the Union, if adopted. Tho first Con
stitutional Amendment reads as follows:
"All persons born or naturalized in
the United States, and subject to the
jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the
United States, and of the Stato wherein
they reside. No State shall make or
enforce, any law which shall abridge the
privileges or immunities of citizens of the
United States, Nor shall any State
deprive any person of life, liberty, or
property without clue process of
nor deny to any person within its ju•
risdiction the equal protection of the
We advise our readers to road this
section for themselves. The last two
clauses are those proposed by Mr. Thad
Stevens in the House on'the 30th day
of April, 1806. The first clause makes
all persons born or naturalized in the
United States citizens of the United
States; the second clause gives them
the privileges or immunities of citizens;
while the third clause gives all persons
equal protection of the laws.
Dissecting the section thus, wo pro-
pose to follow it up. The first clause
declares all persons, including especial
ly the colored person, as citizens of
the United States. It can mean noth
ing less than this, and it is so admitted
by all Radical speakers.
The second clause says, "No State
" shall make or enforce any law which
"shall abridge the privileges or immu
" nities of citizens of the United States."
This is the most important clause in
the whole section. While the first de
clares all persons, white and colored,
shall be citizens, the second declares
that their rights as citizens shall not
be abridged. What does it mean by
"privileges or immunities." Webster's
definition of "privilege" is: "1. A par
ticular and peculiar benefit or advan
tage enjoyed by a person, company,
or society, beyond the common advan
tages of other citizens. 2. Any pecu
liar benefit or advantage, not common
to others of the human race. SrN. Pre.
ro(rative ; immunity ; FRANCHISE ;
right; claim; liberty." This is an ac
cepted authority, and this is an accep
ted definition of the term "privilogc."
Now, by ratifying that amendment of
Thad Stevens we agree to give the
right of suffrage to the negro not only
in the South ; but in the State of Penn
sylvania; for whatever becomes a part
of the Constitution of the United
States is the "supreme law of the land."
It will not require that it should be pat
to vote in Pennsylvania, as was the
amendment to give soldiers the right
to vote while in the field, which we
passed, and is now the law of this
State. The plea offered by some is
that we cannot vote on amendments
to our State Constitution only once in
five years. This is true, but yet our
law will not be binding which says
only white citizens shall have the right
to vote, if it becomes the law of the
ratified the amendment abolishing sla
very in the United States,: and it is
now the law of the land, bat yet we
did not vote for that amendment di
rectly. In the same manner would the
last Amendment become a law if it
should be ratified. "No State shall
enforce a law which shall abridge the
privileges, &e.," simply means that
Pennsylvania shall not enforce her law
depriving negroes of the right to vote,
if she ratifies the Constitutional amend
ment, or if it becomes a law of the
There arc those who say that the
amendment simply means that the ne
gro shall have the right to sue and
demand protection in life and proper.
ty. It means more than this, and the
last clause only, refers to this.: It
reads, "Nor shall any State deprive
" any person of life, liberty, or prop
" erty without due process of law, nor
" deny to any person within its juris
" diction, the equal protection of the
This clause we deem no more than
just and proper, and there is no man
who says to the contrary. This is as
much of the section as refers to the
right of the colored man to suo,
This is the blinding clause. Leave the
other two clauses out and we would
favor•the section. But as it reads—
first declaring ne,groes citizens, and
then giving them the rights of citizens
to vote,—we cannot bring an evil on
the country by conferring such a favor
on those who have been the. cause of
war and commotion within its borders.
When the settling of that right does
come, we want it to be when the
people South as well as North can be
heard through their own Representa
tives in Congress, and when the coun
try is not distracted as it is at present.
If the Radical negro-lovers can think
to Profit by this distraction in having
their plans carried out, 'we hope our•
citizens will show them that they can
But some will ask, Ought not the
negroes be protected in their life and
property? We say certainly. They
have that protection in Pennsylvania,
and that is just what we want in the
United States. Imposing anything
more than this on any State is unjust.
It is now a law that a negro in the
Southern States shall have such a
right; ‘the guarantee," as Mr. Johnson
said in his veto of the Civil Rights
Bill, which is now a law, "having been
rendered especially obligatory and sa
cred by the amendment to the Consti.
tution abolishing slavery throughout
the United States."
The real issue cannot be smoothed
over by saying it is only giving the
negroes the right to sue,he parties,and
give evidence, for they have that right
already. Even Thad Stevens, the fra
mer of the amendments, says that negro
suffrage is the issue in the present-cam
paign. And we would rather believe
him who knew why ho made the
amendments than we would any one
who looks at them superficially. .At a
meeting at Bedford, Mr. Thaddeus
Stevens said :
"As I said before the great issue to
be met at this election is the question
of NEGRO RIGHTS. smut, NOT
DENY, BUT ADMIT, that a fundamental
principle of the Republican creed, is, that
EVERY BEING POSSESSING AN IMMORTAL
SOUL IS EQUAL BEFORE THE LAW."
l ; i it 18 denied that Mr. Stevens ever
uttered this sentiment we have only to
refer the reader to Forney's Philadel
phia Press, of Monday, Sept. 10, inst.,
or to the Bedford Inquirer, of the pre.
His Claims for Support.
We have been waiting anxiously
for the Jour. d; Amer. to urge the
claims of HENny S. WHARTON upon
the Republican party. But it has been
prudent in that particular, and has
not asked for support for Mr. Wharton
on the ground that he has been true
to his party nominations. Everybody
remembers the campaign of last year
when a soldier ticket was before. the
people. Everybody remembers the
campaign of the year previous when
Mr. Barker was elected. Does any
body remember of Mr. Wharton tak
ing any interest in the success of the
Union candidate in either campaign - ?
Don't every party man remember that
Henry S. Wharton ,was dead in poli
tics-that ho failed to take• any. part
in the-struggle for the success of the
Union candidates ? And don't every
body in town know that he was con
nected with the guerillas who tried to
defeat Baker, Beaver and :Renner
last fall. And don't everybody know
that Wharton was forced upon the
ticket this fall by the men who tried
to defeat a portion of the ticket last
fall ? If the party men of the county
owe Mr. Wharton anything for servi
ces rendered, and they desire to pay
him, his reward should be defeat. He
cannot expect better treatment from
his party than he gave it when more
deserving men than himself were its
candidates—as a man Mr. Wharton is
a gentleman, as a politician he is for
himself, first, last and all the time.
Will the Journal (C; American give the
people the political programme of Mr.
Wharton during the past three years ?
Our. Candidate for Congress,
HUNTINGDON, Sept. 11, ISGG
R. L. JouNsToN ESQ.
DEAR SIR :—As a candidate for Con
gross, do you endorse the sentiments
uttered by the following resolutions
unanimously adopted by tho National
'Union Convention, held in Philadel
phia August 14.
Representation in the Congress of the
United States and in the electoral college is
a right recognized in the Constitution as abi
ding in every State, and as a duty imposed
upon the people, fundamental in its nature,
and essential to the existence of our republi
can institutions, and neither Congress nor the
general government has any power or author
ity to deny this right to any State, or to with
hold its enjoyment under the Constitution
from the people thereof.
We call upon the people of the United
States to elect to Congress, as members
thereof, none but men who admit this funda
mental right of representation, and who will
receive to seats therein loyal representatives
from every State in allegiance to the United
States, subject only to the constitutional
right of each house to judge of the election,
returns, and qualifications of its own mem
An early reply will oblige,
W M. lAWIS
EBENBI3IIRG, Sept. 15, 1866
WM. LEWIS, ESQ.,—DEAR SIR' —You r
note is before me, and with it the res
olutions it refers to. I recognize your
right, whether as a voter in my dis
trict, or- a journalist, to ascertain the
views of any candidate offered for your
support; and fortunately for me, I an:
able, without any hesitation, to make
you a frank and candid reply.
I need not tell you that if elected
and admitted to a seat in Congress, I
should be_required to take an oath to
"support the Constitution of the United
States." In that instrument I find that,
"the Senate of the United States shall
be composed of two Senators from each
State,"—and that "Representatives and
direct taxes shall be apportioned
among the several States which may
be included within this Union, accord
ing to their respective numbers" Lte. I
believe with the late President Lincoln
and his Cabinet—with the Congress
which inaugurated the war to put down
the rebellion and prevent secession ;
with the statesmen in the forum and
the soldiers in the field ;—that no State
can secede from the Union. All the
acts of the Government, in all its de
partments,:were based upon the duty
of preserving the "Union of the States.
For this we labored—for this we. in
curred our enormous debt—for this wo
gave the lives of our brethren.
That the *Union was preserved is not
now a matter of argumentit is his
tory. Every Southern State is now
moving on peacefully under her own
Constitution and laws; while the Judi
cial Department takes cognizance of
every Southern State in the adminis
tration of civil and criminal jurispru
dence, and the Executive Department
collects its proportion of the taxes to
pay the National debt, and "takes care
that the laws be faithfully executed."
If Mr. Stevens, who embodies the
radical idea, were asked how many
States are in the Union,cven ho Would
unwillingly give the same answer as
the student in Geography, "thirty six."
Yet while any radical would make this
answer; and While "our flag," the proud
emblem of our nationality, flings its .
thirty-six stars to the breeze, from the
Atlantic to the Pacific, and from the
lakes to_ the gulf—while our gallant
tars float the same "starry ensign," on
every sea under the Heaven ;----these
same radicals, by refusing them that
which makes a State, and without which
a State cannot exist, would reduce them
to subjugated provinces.
Believing, then, that every State in
the South is entitled to two Senators
in Congress, and as many members of
the House of Representatives as the
act of Congress provides, I can at once
"subscribe to the sentiments" of the
resolutions to which you rotor. And
while, under that other clause of. the
Constitution, which makes each House
judge of the "qualifications of its Own
members," I would refuse a scat to any
DISLOYAL member,; and every member
refusing to take the test oath prescribed
by Congress, I would make the dis
qualification a personal one, and not
permit it to impair the rights of a Sov
ereign State. Hoping you will excuse
the crudeness of the foregoing views,
arising from the extreme hurry in
which they are•written,
I remain very respectfully yours,
A Letter from Gov. Johnston,
We cut the following noble letter of

PHILADELPHIA, August 31, 186 G.
IT'lltiam M. Allison; Esq.:
My Dear Sir—Pressure of official'
duties will prevent an acceptance of
your kind -invitation to address the
people of Juniata. county, at, their
meeting on the 4th of September.
regret very sincerely that the pleasure
is thus denied td tho"pr again meeting
many old and .esteemed friends, and
conferring with thorn upon the issues
now agitating our country and divid
ing in senthnent our people. It would
have r been a ploasingduty to have been
permitted to say to my old acquaint
ances that the same cordial and undy
love for the Union of the States
and the supremacy of the Constitution
of our fathers still controls, as it has
in all times past, my political action I
desire no improved, remodeled or Cot
ter Constitution and Union than that
under which the country has prosper
ed in peace, conquered in war, and
triumphantly vindicated American
liberal institutions at home and abroad.
The present confee, for political power
involves great and, sacred principles
and truths, and upon its decision
much of the future, peace; prosperity
and progress of. our country depend.
In this contest I. shall faithfully and I
with what small ability I possess ad
and maintain "the unity of the
government" !the "nationality of the
people" of the United States. I shall
ask no "shibboleth" of party, know no
sectional scheme or war cries, but ou
ter upon, continuos and end the fight
under the glorious banner of the na- I
tional Constitution. I shall most cor
dially unite with all mon, irrespective
of former party associations, who are
willing to defend these principles and
war under this banner. It, is alleged,
I am aware, that there is no design
upon the part of any political organi
zation now existing to destroy or
hreak up the Union of the States. The
allegation is thus made, and many
good men, no doubt, believe in its
truth. If no such design is intended,
it is manifestly true-that the practical
effect of the action of the last Con
gress is in that direction, and must re
sult, if persevered in or:permitted by
the people, in the' . establishment of a

framed, constitute your platform,count

A FRIGHTFUL PICTURE.—What a
frightful picture that is which the rad
icals portray to their listeners---the
rebels with their daggers uplifted
ready to strike_ .a death-blow to the
Government. Yt is truly dreadful, but
indeed wo had that time bad
passed.. When:the war - continued wo
dreaded the attempts of the rebels,but
now that they are subdued, with their
arms all taken from them, the military
still amongst them, and their leaders
either in prison or carefully watched,
we thought their hopes of victory bad
vanished. What a terrible thing a
man's prejudices are? HO dreads a
fallen foe, he is not willing to trust his
fellow man, be forgets the Divine com
mand to "Love thy neighbor as thy
self," coupled with the sentiment of the
Lord's prayer, to "Forgive us our tres
passes as wo forgive those that tres
pass against us," and of the Golden
Rule which appeals to us to "Do unto
others as we would have others do un
to us." Let Chriitians not forget their
duty to their felkOw mau as taught by
the Saviour, in this daY of tribulation.
IT CANNOT BE DENTED.—That negro
suffrage is the issue in the present earn•
paign cannot be successfully denied.
The reading of the first amendment to
the Constitution,' PROPOSED BY
TIIAD. STEVENS, is enough to con
vince any man. The Radical speakers,
Forney, Stevens, McVeigh and others

ho met at this election is the question
of NEGRO RIGHTS. I shalt not DENY,
