We are not sorry that this is our last
issue before the election. For some
weeks we have devoted our paper en
tirely to politics, and in doing so we
know wo have displeased many who
prefer having in theiß families a gen
eral news paper. Our . political course
ton has displeased many of our best
friends, but wo cannot take anything
back. If we could have thrown con
science to the devil and played the part
of the more politician we might have
been able to please those we have dis
pleased. We claim for ourself all the
privileges claimed by any other free
white man, and so long as wo aro per
mitted to live wo intend to enjoy them.
We make no pledges as to what our
future course shall be, further than
that we will advocate such measures
as we may believe best calculated to
promote peace ; harmony and prosperi
ty in all the States—in the whole Union.
Our next Globe will be itself again—
devoted to general and local news, etc.,
etc. And whatever the results of the
election may be we shall be prepared
""to take them for better or for worse."
PID'VOTERS of Huntingdon County,
Note as your conscience tells you is
right. If you listen to the more poll
ticianr--the mere party man right or
wrong—you will be sure to be deceiv
ed. If a man wants to vote honestly
be must avoid the influence of mere
office seekers. If a man cannot resist
the lash of party leaders be is not a
free man—ho does not vote as his judg
ment dictates, but votes as directed.
We never have given the control ofour
political rights into the hands of lead
ers of any party, and we feel very sure
we never shall. A free man votes as
he pleases. A press is only free when
it dare repudiate the wrong and sus
tain the right. A week more and the
campaign will bo over in this State,
and we hope the results may be favor
able to peace, prosperity, and a Union
of all the States, a principle we have
contended for from the commencement
of the war.
We regret to notice that the Journal
tf7 American, the organ of the party in
this county to which we belong, char
ges Col. John S. Miller with being op
posed to the soldiers. We know that
this charge is false, for, as soldiers, we
have received many evidences of kind
ness from Col. Miller. In 1863, when
we were at Huntingdon on recruiting
service, we got boarding from him for
one third less per month, than we could
get it at any other place in Hunting
don. Knowing this fact of our per
sonal knowledge, we feel that it is the
grossest injustice now to charge Col.
Miller with having been opposed to the

Do You Want &bola to Rule ?
This is the question put by the Rad
icals to our people. They accompany
it by the infamous assertion that Pres
ident Johnson -wants none but rebels
in Congress. Let us see who will have
to blame if rebels aro admitted. See
tion sth of tho Constitution of the
United States, which every man is
bound to support, reads as follows :
"Each House (of Congress) shall be
the Judge of the elections, returns and
qualifications of its own members."
Here it is left to each House to say
whether a man who presents his cre
dentials is a loyal man or not, and
whether he is qualified to act as a
Senator or a Representative or not.—
There is a very simple rule for Con
gress to go by; and the President has
nothing to do with it, and he has never
undertaken to do anything with it,
but has merely expressed the opinion
of every Northern man, that he want
ed to see unmistakably loyal men ad
mitted. This is merely an opinion
that every citizen can hold, and to say
that the President can compel any
member from the South to bo admitted
is a falsehood. He knows he can't,
and he has not nor will not attempt to
enforce any opinion of his own in re
gard to it. It is left entirely to Con
gress to say who is qualified to come
in, and if a man from the South pre
sents himself for admission, they are
to be the judges of his qualifications.—
If he is a rebel they can judge, if he is
a loyal man they are to judge. What
is gained therefore by the Constitu
tional amendment, which excludes all
rebels from Congress? It would be
the same position after:the adoption as
now. A southern man would come to
Congress, and the question would
then arise, Is he a loyal man, and
qualified to come in? It would be
the same decision as before. So, we
can see no reason why Congress should
impose any conditions before the South
should bo admitted. The above sec
tion of the Constitution makes condi
tions enough, and we can see no rea
son why the last Congress did not
avail themselves of it.
But suppose a rebel should be .admit
ted, and he should express disloyal
sentiments. The next provision to the
above in the Constitution reads:
" Each House may determine the
rule of its proceedings, punish its mem
bers for disorderly behaviour, and with
the concurrence of twothirds, cxpcl a
There is another simple rule to go
by. When a man becomes disloyal,
he can be expelled. There can be no
excuse for the last Congress in not ad
mitting loyal Southern Representatives
unless it is that they consider the
Southern States as mere conquered
provinces, and not entitled to the func
tions of States of this Union. This is
their only plea, and this is where Pres
ident Lincoln, President Johnson and
all Union men differ with them. Let
us have the Southern loyal Represen
tatives admitted, so that we can have
a - Union in filet, just what we fought
for, nd just what we must have, if we
want peace and harmony.
Why are they Mum ?
Wo receive a large number of Rad
ical Republican papers in exchange,
and wo have the first ono to see that
opposes negroes voting and holding
office equal with the white man. Why
is it so ? Can not every inquiring
man answer? Is it not beeause they
are ready to endorse, any action of
Congress forcing negro political equal
ity upon the people of all the Slit t es
at the point of the bayonet if na
ry? Has the Huntingdon Journal
American opposed negro suffrage?—
Is it not known to every Republican
in town who has taken the trouble to
inquire, that the editors are in favor
of giving the negroes all the rights
claimed for them by Thad. Stevens
Have they ever opposed any of the
most Radical meaures proposed in
Congress by Stevens, Sumner or any
other of the disunion leaders ? No,
they have boon mum, which is suffi
cient evidence that they aro willing to
aid the "fanatics" in forcing negro
equality upon the people. When ne
gro suffrage is forced upon the people
by the action of Congress, those who
may ha; e voted for Radical candidates
will not have us to blame for not giv
ing them warning in time. We do not
intend to be cheated or run any risk
in tho matter—we shall vote for Robt.
L. Johnston for Congress. We know
he is opposed to giving the negro the
right to vote and hold office. Daniel
J. Morrell is a Radical—he is the can
didate of the Radical party. He is a
yankee from down east, just the man
to do the bidding of Thad. Stevens.—
If you want negro suffrage forced upon
the States vote for Daniel J. Morrell.

way of such men when votes are to be
made to elect Thad. Stevens or Sum

What lion. John Scott-Thinks.
Hon. John Scott made a speech at
the sosealled Republican meeting on
Thursday night last, in which he die
cussed the Constitutional Amendment.
He averred that he wanted to "press
home the nigger and the taxes,"
according to the instruction of Mr. W.
Wallace, the Chairman of the Demo
cratic State Central Committee. He
denied positively that the first amend
ment would give the negro the right
of suffrage. He stated that it declared
the negro a citizen and gave him his
civil rights. This we do not deny.—
But we do disagree with him on the
vital point, as embraced in the second
clause, where it relates to the privile
ges of a citizen. He stated that here
tofore it has been a question as to whe
ther a negro was a citizen, and men
tioned a case in point, wherein a ne
gro, in Maryland, we believe, came to
the polls to cast his ballot. It was
refused. Then the case went before
the Courts. Mr. Scott mentioned five
eminent Judges who declared that the
negro was not a citizen, and therefore
not entitled to the right to vote, while
three other Judges declared that the
negro was a citizen. .Now, here was
a dispute as to whether the negro was.
a citizen or not—five Judges saying
he was not, and three saying that he
was. The first section of the Amend
ment, Mr. Scott admitted, is to settle
that the negro is a citizen. Then, ho
says, that because the negro will be
declared a citizen, it will not give him
the privilege of voting. We allege
that it will, and we shall undertake to
prove it. As Mr. Scott admitted that
a negro could not vote heretofore be
cause he was not a bitizen, as decided
by eminent lawyers, what is to pre
vent him from voting if he is made a
citizen ? The question will go through
the same process as before, with the
difference that this time it will be on
the rights of a negro as a citizen. A
.negro claiming to be a citizen will go
to the polls to vote. If his vote is re
fused, his ease will be taken up by the
courts, just as it was in the other case.
Should the minor courts fail to decide
the question, it will go before the Su
preme Court. There it will be finally
decided. Chief Justice Chase will
make the decision. To-day, Mr. Chase
holds the most extreme notions of the
most extreme Radicals. He is in fa
vor of negro suffrage, and whatever
doubt ho may have as to the propriety
of enforcing it, ho Will declare that as
a negro is a citizen, ono of his rights as
a citizen is to vote and hold office.
This being his decision, as it would
be, what use is it for States to decide
on an amendment which they have
ratified before? You may decide it,
and that will be enough. You may
ratify it through the State Legislature
and that is all the Constitution requires
of each State. It will be a part of the
Constitution, and that is the supreme
law of the land, State laws to the con
trary notwithstanding. If the amend•
meat is ratified, there can be no further•
dispute as to who is a citizen, and if
there is as to the rights of a citizen,
the Supremo Court will decide that it
We declare it again, in defiance of
all opposition, that if a negro is made
a citizen, he will get his political as
well as civil rights as a citizen. As to
civil rights we ask any candid, clear
sighted man, whether the last clause
of the first section does not defend a
negro in all his civil rights to life, lib
erty, and property, no matter in what
State he may reside ? This clause we
do not object to, but we do object to the
other clauses of the first section, which
declare a negro a citizen, and give
him his political privileges as such.—
Each State decides who shall and who
shall not ho citizens, and who arc en
titled to the rights of citizens; and it
the people are taught by men that
Congress has power to give such rights
when they as people are opposed to it,
then the consequence will bring regret
and mortification upon them. We
take the section as it reads, and not as
it is made to read, and we can come
to no other conclusion than that it is a
sly attempt to force negro suffrage on
the whole country.
L ( . 'lt should be recollected that
Congress refused to send the Constitu
tional amendments to the President for
his signature. This was an unconsti
tutional act, as Sec. 7 of the Constitu
tion reads that "Every order, resolu
tion, or vote to which the concurrence
of the Senate and House of Represen
tatives may be necessary except on a
question of adjournment) shall be pre
sented to the President of the United
States, and before the saw shall take
effect, shall be approved by him, and
being disapproved by him,F3ball be re
passed by two-thirds of the Senate and
House of Representatives according to
the rules and limitations prescribed in
the case of a bill." This is plausible
enough to make the ratification inval
id, even should it bo passed by the re
quired three-fourths of the States.
virOur friend Mr. Scott announced
in his speech at the "big meeting" that
we had "fallen from grace." The crowd
in attendance aL the Union meeting
the next evening, were decidedly
of the opinion that Charley Sehriner
proved that Mr. Scott was the gentle
man who had "fallen from grace." The
futu re. will settle the question.

r If any man tells you that the
first amendment to the Constitution
only means giving the negro civil
rights, ask him if it don't mean more
than that. The last clause says:—
Nor shall any State deprive any per
son of life, liberty or property, without
due process of law, nor deny to any
person within its jurisdiction the equal
protection of the laws." Now, we ask
any candid man whether that clause
does not give the negro and all his
tribe as much right to sue and demand
the protection of the laws. as it gives
co the white race. This clause we
have never objected to; but wo do
still find fault witn tho other two
clauses, and especially the second, for
_it should be remembered that Penn
sylvania is meant just as well as any
Southern State. Wo have heretofore
defined what "citizen" and "priv
ilege" meant, according to Webster,
and we can come to no other conclu
sion than that it gives the privileges of
a citizen to a negro as well as a white
man, all over the United States. In
fact, the first two clauses give a negro
political rights, as much as the last
clause gives the negro civil rights.—
We ask every man to read the first
section of the proposed amendment for
himself, and see whether he can ex
plain the first two clauses, without
placing the same construction on it as
we do. If any ono denies that it does
give suffrage; then ask him to explain
the first two clauses. Ho cannot but
admit that the last clause means civil
rights, then what does the other two

What a Radical Says.
The editor of the New York Inde
pendent, speaks out plainly. It says :
The Radical Party,North and South,
white and black, can assert to no re•
construction short of impartial suf•
Is Congress already committed to a
less perfect plan ? Not at all. Congress
is not committed for or against impar
tial suffrage. It has not tied its bands
against the future. It is free to act as
the emergency may require. If, next
winter, it shall choose to mako impar
tial suffrage the condition of restora
tion, it can can do so, and Christain
souls will cry Amen ! We know per
sonally every prominent member of
Congress,and we know that the leaders
do not.mean to admit the unadmitted
States on the mere adoption of the
amendment. Moreover, wo know per.
sonally the leading radicals of the Re
publican party outside of Congress,and
we know that they have no intention of
making the amendment the final meas
ure of admission. To say, therefore, as
the National Committee say, that on
condition of adopting the amendment,
as Tennessee adopted it, "the door
stands invitingly open" for the ten
other States, is to make a promise to
the ear to breath it to the hope. There
is a door, however that does "stand in
vitingly open ;" and whenever these
States shall choose to enter through it
they will by received with shouts,
thanksgivings, and benedictions; it is
the gate of impartial justice.
It is asked, Why then was Tennessee
admitted on the basis of the amend
ment? In the first place, Tennessee
ought not to have been admitted on
such a basis; her admission was a min•
Bled crime and blunder. But the ap
ology which Congress made for her ad
mission was, that her attitude was ex
ceptional--that her ease was not to be a
precedent for the ten other• States.
Already the admission of Tennessee,
without impartial suffrage proves the
peril of admitting any of the other
States except on this only safe condi
tion. Her Legislature is about to
remedy the deficiency of Congress, by
enacting impartial suffrage at the next
session. The Ter.nessecans who asked
for the admission of their State with
out impartial suffrage, said at Philadel
phia that no remaining State of the ton
could be safely admitted except with
Facts for the People—Admission of
the Southern States.
On the 4th of March, in the middle
of the war, long after the Southern
States had seceded, a Radical Repub
lican Congress passed, and President
Lincoln signed the following law :
CHAP. XXXIV.—An Act fixing the
number of the House of Representa
tives from and after the 3d of March
eighteen hundred and sixty-three.
"Be it enacted by the Senate and
Rouse of Representatives of the United
States of America in Congress assembled,
That from and after the third of March,
eighteen hundred and sixty-three the
number of members of the House of Re
presentatives of the Congress of the Uni
ted States shall he two-hundred and forty
one; and the eight additional members
shall be assigned one each to Pennsyl
vania, Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, lowa,
Minnesota, Vermont and Rhode Is
la n d .
"Approved March 4, 18G2."
As there are but ono hundred and
seventy members from the so-called
loyal States,* will be seen that tho
Southern States wore recognized and
assigned some seventy members of
Congress. This law is uurepealed.—
The South acted under it, chose her
members, and is then told that they
cannot come in—that they aro not
States! In other words, Congress re
fuses to obey its own laws, and will
not admit its own members.
The President's Views on the
On the 2 . lst, of Juno the President
submitted to Congress a message on
the Constitutional Amendments, from
which we take the following extract :
"A proper appreciation of 'the letter
and spirit of the Constitution, as wolf as
the interest of national order, harmony
and union, and a deference for an en
lightened judgment, may at this time
well suggest a doubt whether any
amendment to the Constitution ought
to be proposed by Congress and press
ed on the Legislatures of the several
States for final decision until after the
admission of such Senators and Repro.
sentatives of the unrepresented States
as have been or as hereafter may be
chosen in conformity with the Consti
tution and laws of the United States."
GETTING WEARY.—The great desire
of the American people during the
war was for an honorable peace.
When the war closed, they desired
that the peace should be real and per
=meat. But a number of rash and ex
treme men say there shall be no peace.
Trade, industry, domestic quiet, na
tional recuperation, aro, they preach,
not to be encouraged. Another war
must be entered upon at their bidding.
They ask too much. The country is
wearying of them. They will do wise
ly if they extinguish their torches and
hang up their swords. They have been
tolerated for some time now, but they
and their flaming orators will soon be
looked upon as madmen or worse.
air Leading Radicals assert that
Congress has the power to impose any
condition on the Southern States, it
chooses. It was for this reason that
so many propositions relating to color
ed suffrage were made in the last Con
gress, and for this reason the constitu
tional amendments worn proposed. If
Congress has the power to keep a State
out of the Union, then it has the pow
er to put a State out of it, and such a
power it never has and never can ex
