is a victory for the Republicans—they

The opposition to Curtin was made

the main of the Convention harmoni

selection of .the delegates to the Chi

Curtin may. be the nominee—he would
be sure to be if the choice could -bo left

Republican State Convention.
Immense Attendance.--•-Hartranft and

---The Convention Declares for Grant
and Curtin !
PHILADELPHIA, Mare 11 11, 1868
The Republican Stato Convention
assembled at the Academy of Music at
ten o'clock to-day, the attendance be
ing very largo.
The Convention was called to order
by Col. F. Jordan, Chairman of the
State Central Committee, who deliv
ered the following
Gentlemen of the Convention and Fel
low-Citizens:—No, and our co-work
ers,' for the last seven long years have
been fighting the great battles of liber
ty and humanity; not only for tbis .
country, and for our day, but for the
whole world, and for all time. Some
times on the battle field, and somo
times at the ballot-box; but however
the scenes of conflict may have chang
ed, the great principles involved have
ever been and yet aro essentially the
same. Much blond has been shed, and
many trials and sacrifices endured; and
thank God, many triumphs achieved:.
But the history of the eventful past,
and the grave duties and responsibili
ties of the present, alike assures us
that "the end is not yet." 'Pho great
conflict between good and evil, right
and 'wrong, freedom and slavery, is
eternal; and having put our hands to
tho plow, we can but press onward to
the fulfillment of our mission, until the
thorough suppression of rebellion, and
the complete reconstruction of the rebel
States are accomplished facts; and un
til the rights of all men are established
an the immutable foundations of uni
versal liberty and impartial justice.—
In our past struggles we have met and
overcome all conceivable dangerous ob
structions. Wo have oncounterediper
ils at home and abroad, by land and
sea, and last but not least, perils from
false brethren. But through the cour
age and fidelity of our soldiers, the
patriotic devotion and endurance of
our people, and the firmness, wisdom
and loyalty of our national Congress,
we have thus far triumphed over all
our foes. The House has recently giv
en renewed evidence of courage and
fidelity, and every loyal man expects
the Senate to do its duty.
Inspired by the past victories we,
made the high resolve, "That the
nation shall, under God, have a now
birth of freedom; and that the govern
ment of the people, by the people, and
for the people, shall not perish from the
earth." By the continued blessing of
the Almighty we shall repeat and in
crease our triumphs, until the great
and fundamental principles shall be
established and perpetuated, that the
majority shall rule, and that this groat
and free republic shall be governed by
those, And those only, who are faithful
to her natiohat - unitriamt-loyal to her .
Many of our gallant rank and filo
are not with us to-day,,and not a few
of our noblest and purest loaders have
fallen in the strife ; but such is the in
evitable lot in all warfare. Men die,
but principles aro eternal. Lot us, in
thelight of these convictions and. re
sponsibilities,. take, counsel together,
and in faith and in wisdom choose oth
er standard bearers, and if,as indicated
by the signs of the times, the lot should
fall on - that modest patriot and hero,
General "Unconditional Surrender"
Grant, it will boa pledge to the world,
"known and read of all won," that we
mean "forthwith to move on the ene
my's works," and that we "will fight it
outon this lino, if it takes all summer."
Congratulating you upon the mem
bers, character and enthusiasm with
which you have come up to renew the
conflict, and invoking the spirit of
wisdom, patriotism and harmony on
all your deliberations, I now perform
my last official act as chairman of the
State Committee, by calling this con
vention to order. ' •
At the conclusion of Col. Jordan's
remarks, the Convention proce'eded to.

was elected Chairman, with the usual
complement of Vice Presidents and
Gen. Lerriuel Todd,' of Cumberland
County, was elected permanent chair
man. Ho, iu a speech of some length,
reviewed the present condition of na
tional affairs, and intimated that the'
preferences of the convention . for the
Presidential offices had centered upon
Gen. U. S. Grant and A. G. Curtin.
After being regularly organized, the
Convention proceeded to a ballot as a

following Resolutions, which wore
unanimously adopted, viz :
Resolved, That the groat Republican
party of America—without which the
rebellion against the Government
would have consumated the division of
the Union, and perpetuated human
slavery, with the aid, comfort and full
approval of the present Democratic
party—is in the fore front of another
peril and another trial. Electing its
candidate for President in 1860, and
re-clotting him in 1864, it is now called
upon to decide whether all the sacrifi

on the Senate of the United States, sit
ting as a court of impeachment, to pro

And that the people of Pennsylvania
will stand by and maintain the just
judgment of the law.
Resolved, That the soldiers and sail
ors of the Union who fought and con
quered armed rebellion in the field,
and stand true to the principles which
they vindicated and the flag which
floated over them and led them to vic
tory, aro entitled to the undying grat
itude of all loyal people. And as they
saved the country by their trials, suf
ferings and sacrifices they have con
siderable claims to the highest honors
of the nation.
• Ms°lved, That we tender our most
cordial thanks to the Ron. Edwin M.
Stanton for the firmness, courage, and
patriotism with which ho has main
tained the majesty of the law and tho
rights of the people against the at
tempted invasions of a faithless Execu
tive and his purchased instruments.
.Resolved, That as experience is alike
the best instructor of mon and nations,
so the experience of the rebellion has
given us renewed confidence in the
pledges and precepts of thelDeclaration
of Independence, and that with these
as:our guiding stars, the Republi l ean
party must always succeed.
Resolved, That the purity of the bal
lot-box should bo carefully guarded as
of vital importance to the best interests
of the country, and that this Conven
tion deem a justand impartial registry
law to be necessary to protect us from
the astoundingfrauds which haVe here
tofore been perpetrated.
Resolved, That no contrast so elo
quent. could be presented as that be
tween the loud professions of Andrew
Johnson and the silent professions of
Ulysses S. Grant, that as the one deals
in promises to deceive, the other deals
in acts that convince; and. that while
Johnson has fallen rapidly away from
his many voluntary covenants, Grant
has accepted equal justice and radical
Republicanism as a part alike of con
science and of duty.
Resolved, That we cordially endorse
the administrationof State affairs by
Gov. John W. Geary, in which be has
proved himself efficient in the cabinet
as in the field, an able and successful
statesman since the war, as ho was an
able and successful general during the
war; and ho merits the confidence of
the people of Pennsylvania, and we
pledge him the continued support of
the •Republican party of the State.
Resolved, That the public debt, in
curred for the purpose of preserving
the existence of the nation, is a sacred
obligation, binding the people to its
payment in the utmost good faith, and
to the full extent of its legal require
ments; and that the greatest prudence,
judgment, and skill aro requisite, and
should, as far as attainable, be employ
ed at once to maintain the public faith,
and credit, and render the burden, of
which no loyal citizen should complain,
as light as practicable upon the produe•
tivo industry of the country and the
wages and proceeds of labor.
Resolved, That it is the dictate Of the
soundest policy, as well as of the groat
est wisdom, that the domestic industry
of the country should be sustained and
protected against foreign competition
by adequate tariff lairs, and that in
whatever particulars the existing laws
on the subject are defective,they should
be amended and made efficient for that
purpose, as well as for the purpose of
raising of revenue for the Government.
Resolved, That by the election of
General Grant to the Presidency all
domestic dissensions and factious op
position to tho'complotereconstruction
of the Union on the'firm foundations
laid by wise and judicious legislation
of Congress, will lie immediately sup
pressed and harmony and good feeling
restored, settled relations of business
established, and the revival and im
provement of all the disturbed sources
of national wealth and prosperity will
be secured when it is once made mani
fest that the people of this country aro
firmly fixed in their determination that
tho fruits of the late bloody and obsti
nate struggle shall not be lost, and that
the factious and rebellious resistance
to the laws shall bo as effectually over

ing naturalization by ono nation as ter
minating the allogiancb duo to another,
and conferring all rights of citizenship,
it is no less its duty to vindicate ite

Resolved, That in Gen. John F. Hart

nominees for reelection to the impor
tant State offices of Auditor General
and Surveyor General, we recognize
brave soldiers who led and shared with

nary strife against rebels in arms, and
who have since proved themselves to
be competent, faithful and upright of
ficers in time of peace; and we confi
dently commend them to the suffrages
of it people who have not forgotten to
be' grateful to the defenders of the life
of the nation and who love to honor
those who exposed themselves, in toil

Andrew G. Curtin makes a Speech
before a State lass Meeting.
Mayor WMichael President of the
meeting, attempted to speak, but was
interrupted by "three cheers for Andy
Curtin, whioh worn quickly given
and repeated. The Mayor finally
said : Follow.oitizens, after such an
exhibition it would be unbecoming in
me to introduco to you Gov. Curtin.
Order having boon comparatively
restored, Governor Curtin spoke as
Ladies and Gentlemen :—I could
scarcely lay claim to tho ordinary em
otions of a man did I fail to fool com
plimented by such a reception as that
which you have so graciously extended
to mo; and indeed I feel that I have
been highly complimented by the ac
tion of the convention-of the Republi
can party of Pennsylvania which met
in this city during the present week.
Having accepted tho invitation ex
tended to me, I am hero to-night to
acknowledge my appreciation- of the
partiality of that Convention towards
myself. It may not bo inappropriate
for mo to remark that it was not long
anticipated that the Republican party
of the State of Ponnsylvania, at the
first opportunity, would give fitting
expression to the grateful sentiments
which swell up from the hearts of this
people towards the greatestsoldier of
the ago, and would nominate General
Grant for the Presidency.
The action of the convention in this
particular finds a prompt and cordial
response in the head and heart of every
loyal citizen of Pennsylvania, and it
only requires the' usual formula of con
ventional State nominations, and, the
action of the National Convention of
this great party, to place Gen. Grant
before the people, and then the formu
la of an election to place him in the
Presidential ohair. (Applause.) It is
a source of much gratification to me
personally to know that that party
has, with so much unanimity, respon
ded to the popular demand by nomin
ating a man toward whom public sen
timent all over the loyal part of this
Republic pointqd so steadily.
So far as concerning the nomination
for the Vico Presidency, I have only
to say that the importance and value
of the distinguished •honor cannot be
overestimated by me, when I reflect
that it comes from a convention prop
erly constituted, and which represents
the real sentiments of the State and
of,the great party that has ever been
faithful to the Government in all. its
struggles for lifo.
.1 know very well that when in her
full measure of dignity and power
Pennsylvania presents the name of one
of her citizens at the National Conven
tion her voice will bo respected. But
if he whose name they have boon plea
sed to present in this instance should
fail to be nominated by the National
Convention, ho will be found, as here
tofore, working faithfully with those
who work for the good and virthous
and loyal and true—for the nomi
nees of the convention... (Great ap
plause ) „.
My friends, permit me to say I have
never pretended to bo in advance of
public opinion,knowing that I have on
ly been the representative man of an
educated public sentiment. Connected
with the Republican party on its first
organization, I have ever identified
myself with its progress. I have ad
hered to its principles, advocated the
election of its standard bearers, and
marched with the public sentiment of
that party, step by step. In its infan
cy, I watched that great party strug
gling with the great idea of human
freedom ; and I stood by it in its strug
gle when whole thousands of the best
of our people went down to death to
maintain our Government, and to
rify it, and when slavery and treason
were. crushed .beneath the mighty
power of this great party. (Great-ap
I am to-day with the progress.made
by that party. I shall be' with it in
the future; and as public sentiment
becomes stronger and stronger, I trust
to be with my party when it. has full
and entire respect for,and recognizes in
the broadest sense all rights to' which
all mankind aro entitled. (Cheers.)—
It has already shaken the shackles
from the slave, and given. him assist
ance; and where the white man was
unfit to govern and-had failed in 'his•
fidelity, the ballot has been given' to
the black man. (Applause.) • ;
I repeat to you that I am with my
party in its progress, and will ever bo
found identified with that party into
whose hands have been entrusted , the
destinies of this country, and which,
by reason of its thorough knowledge
of the great principles lying at the
foundation of our fabric of govern
ment, has sustained it through the se
verest trials. When my party pro-.
grosses further, I will -be found with
it, if not one-step in advance.
I am thankful to the gentleman who
drew the resolutions just adopted for
declaring that the candidates present
ed by Pennsylvania aro "conservative"
and radical," just as the interests of
the Government demand. .
In conclusion, I will say to you, my
friends, that if it should be the pleasure
of the National Convention to place
your humble servant in nomination
with General Gaant, I will take the
standard of my ,party; and, inscribing
upon it in letters of living light the
groat principles upon which our hopes
are based, I will unfurl it on the shores
of Lake Erie and carry It before •the
people ofren nsylvania to the Delaware.
And if another should be honored with
the candidacy, I am ready to carry that
banner for him, whoever he may be. I
have no pledges or promises to make
to you, my fellow-citizens,-further than
the assurance that I am a Republican
in heart and soul.
And now, having acknowledged tho
distinguished honor' which you have
awarded me, and given expression to
the gratitude of my heart to the people
of Pennsylvania for their continued
support, I shall say no more. I would
bo pleased indeed to speak to this as
sembled multitude, to these 'earnest
people in this city of Philadelphia,
where was so much fidelity and loyalty
in the days when to be-unfaithlul was
to destroy our Government forever.
