Wednesday Morning, February 22, 1871.
On the approaching 10th of March the
Republican State Convention assembles, in
Harrisburg, for the purpose of placing can
didates in nomination for Auditor General
and Surveyor General, and for the further
purpose of selecting a new State Central
Committee. The selection of a Chairman
by this Committee will be no small part of
the duty to be performed. The canvass
will, most likely, be a very spirited one.—
The Democrats made heavy gains last fall,
through the dissensions in the Republican
ranks, and they will make very effort to
maintain their ground. Therefore it will
require work—thorough organization—and
to accomplish this successfully, it will re
quire a man, at the head of the State Cen
tral Committee, who is no novice in politics,
but one who can plan his campaign and by
his personal influence enforce its successful
execution. If the party has no confidence
in the ability of the Chairman of the Com
mittee, defeat must overtake us, because in
politics men are prone to lethargy any way,
and when they have no confidence in their
leaders, defeat follows as a matter of course.
It is also of great importance that the
gentlemen who receive the nomination, for
the offices of Auditor and Surveyor Gener
al, should be men of great personal popu
larity. No mere representatives of factions,
but men who can command great personal
influence. There will be very little outside
of the mere personal popularity of the res
pective candidates upon which to conduct
a canvass, and consequently the Convention
should select its men with this important
consideration prominently before them.
In selecting the respective members of
the State Central Committee for the differ
ent counties, men should be selected with
out Democratic diction, who know the
value of organization and know how to or_
ganize. It is the duty of the member for
a county to see that the objects of the Cen
tral Committee are carried out, and to
properly apply the_ means_ placed in his
hands. If he is a drone or an unskilled
novice as wise as Solomon, and more re
markable for conceit than any thing else, the
probabilities are that the party will be all the
worse for having any body to act in that
capacity. We have every respect and ad
miration for the novice who can make up
his mind to do, and who has decision of
character enough to execute his resolutions,
but we have only pity for him who sets up
his own judgment against all experience. '
He invariably follows the counsel of a very '
foolish fellow to say the least. Experience
and a willingness to work is what is wanted
and especially in the county of Hunting- I
don. Give us, then, a man for our mem
ber of the State Central Committee who
will not sit down in his office or counting I
room, or shop, fold his hands and —do I
nothing. We want a live man, one who
knows how to work to advantage, and who
will do it. Give us such a representative,
and the same kind of a man for Chairman
of the County Committee, and Huntingdon
county will take her usual place in the
Republican ranks.
The people of Huntingdon county, we
mean that portion that has heretofore acted
with the Republican party, are as good
Republicans as they ever Were, and they
mean to stand by the party in the future,
and the man who does not, they will place
where he belongs, and he can expect to
have no choice or lot with them.
The Bedford Inquirer in its issue of the
17th instant., contains some very pertinent
reflections upon the subject of "A Repub
lican U. S. Senator," and while we in the
main agree with the force of its logic, we
beg leave to correct some of its facts. But
lest we do injustice, we will copy the major
portion of its article. It reads as follows :
"Pennsylvania will again elect a United States
Senator next year, and aspirants after that desira
ble position are already coming forward. Among
them we find prominent the names of Gov. Geary
and John W. Forney. John W. Geary has made
a good Governor, and John W. Forney is as able
editor, but we don't want either of them for the
Republican United States Senator for 1872. It is
about time we take a new departure and elect a
few original Republicans to office. It is well to
give a fair share of the offices to those who came
over to us during the dark days of the rebellion,
but we doubt the propriety of givingthem all. No
doubt many of them came from patriotic motives,
but there are also many who came late in the day,
when the dark hour had passed, and it was becom
ing evident to all that the Republican party would
he the great party of the immediate future. Of
these late comers nine out of every ten may be set
down as having come for the loaves and fishes,
and the fact that they are constantly pushing
themselves forward for every empty place is only
the stronger proof that they are time servers and
demagogues, whose fealty to party is measured by
the number of fat offices they can obtain. The
number of times we have been betrayed by this
class of persistent office seekers, from Andy John
son down, the constancy with which they put
themselves forward for every place of profit or
honor, and the meek uncomplaining spirit with
which the party accepts these tyros in Republican
ism in preference to true and original Republicans
is becoming so intolerable as to offend and disgust
original Republicans, whose life service has been'
given to the party. To-day we have half, or more
than half, our principal offices filled with these raw
recruits, and they make it their business to ap
point and keep in office their own kind against any
and all original Republicans. Every one can sat
isfy himself of this who will take the trouble to
look over the list of our public officers, both elected
and appointed, for the past four or five years. We
have now a recruit from Democracy for Governor,
one of our United States Senators is of the same
class, and perhaps half our Congressmen, besides
an innumerable host in smaller places. In view
of such facts, without hostility to the class men
tioned, we demand that at least one of our United
States Senators be an original Republican."
It strikes us that the Inquirer does
great injustice to a numerous class of men
who joined the Republican Party in the
hour of peril and danger to the nation.
Men who were willing to sacrifice their
lives, their property, and their sacrad hon
or for the maintainance of oar government
and the preservation of - our liberties.
Where would the Republican Party have
been during the dark days of the Rebellion
without the aid and countenance of these
men ? Had the Democratic Party cooper
ated, as a party, with the Rebels, it is very
doubtful whether the Bedford Inquirer
would be in existence to accuse these men.
We admit that "time servers and dema
gogues, whose fealty to party is measured
by the number of fat offices they can ob
tain," may have taken advantage of the op
portunity afforded and joined us. For one
of these, the Inquirer in this very issue,
blushingly apologizes. There was a day,
if we are not mistaken, when the Inquirer
would have spurned even the thought of
doing so, but it appears that even the In
quirer has becofl the apologist for acts of
corruption and ft'aud, that have sent the
blush of shame, and brought down the se
verest condemnation, of every honest Re
publican in the land.
But to return to the text. The Inquir
er says we have now a recruit from the
Democracy for Governor, and, therefore,
does not want John W. Geary for U. S.
Senator. Why? Not because he is now
Governor, but because he is a recruit from
the Democracy How long does it take to
domicile a Democrat in the Republican
party ? How long must he act, in good
faith, with the Republican party to entitle
him to all its rights and privileges ? Or,
does the Inquirer deny that any such es
tate can be acquired ? If it does not, then
what length of service is necessary to enti
tle him to any of the emoluments of the
party to compensate him for his services ?
The services of men like Governor Geary,
made the Republican party, and they were,
in our estimation, entitled to immediate
preferment. But does the Inquirer pro
fess to to know when Gov. John W. Geary
became a supporter of Republican princi
ples? Now, if our recollection serves us
right, Governor Geary was appointed Gov
ernor of Kansas, and assumed the duties
of the office, in September, 1856, and from
that day to the present, he has never hesi
tated to let people know where ho stood
upon the Slavery question, and the slavery
question made the Republican party. Fif
teen years' advocacy of a set of principles
ought to entitle most any man to an upper
seat in the synagogue. If we are not mis
taken, the senior editor of the Inquirer
only landed in the Republican party a few
years later, when it swallowed up the Amer
ican and old Line Whig parties. We pro_
test against classifying Governor Geary
with any of the newcomers into the Repub
lican party, and though he may not have
been called a Republican for years later,
his acts in Kansas entitle him to the posi
tion of an original Republican. And out
side of this, Governor Geary has made one
of the best executive officers the State of
Pennsylvania has ever had, and his sacri
fices and his wounds and his labors during
the war, entitle him to any position that
the Republican party has within its gift.
Dm. Judge Hall was sworn in and en
tered upon the duties of his appointment,
as President Judge of the XVlth Judicial
District, at Bedford, on the 13th inst. He
tried several cases and then passed the
Court over to Judge Rowe to try such cases
as he (Hall) was retained in. Judge Hall's
demeanor and his rapid dispatch of busi
ness won the commendation of everybody
present. He is an able lawyer and possesses
the judicial temperament to a remarkable
degree,and we have no hesitation in saying
that he will make a most expeditious, able
and popular judge. The busines of the
county is very much behind, and if he has
his way, it will be brought square up, in a
very short space of time, and litigants will
save thousands of dollars and lawyers will
be enabled to get business off their hands
that has been pending for five or six years.

Death of Hon. John Covode.
A message from the House of Repre
sentatives, by Mr. McPherson ,
communicated to the Senate information
of the death of Hon. John Covode, late
a member of the House of Representa
tives from the twenty-first congressional
district of the State of Pennsylvania.
The resolutions of the House of Repre
sentatives were read.
Mr. SCOTT. Mr. President, again, and
for the third time during this short ses
sion, are we reminded that the robes of
office will not ward away the shafts of
death. Another of our colleagues has
fallen, and we lay aside our labors for a
few brief moments to pay a tribute to his
Hon. John Covode, late Representative'
of the twenty-first congressional district
of Pennsylvania, died at Harrisburg, on
the 11th of January. He -had left this
city a few days previous, proceeded to his
home, and with his wife went to Philadel
phia, and made arrangements to place two
of his younger children at school. In
tending tosesume his duties in the House,
he started to return by way of Harris
burg. There, in his usual robust health,
he retired to rest for a few hours before
leaving for Washington. Attacked by
acute pain in the region of the heart, he
awoke, called his wife, and had medical
aid summoned. Remedies were adminis
tered, but within an hour he died.
John Covode wast born in Westmore
land county, Pennsylvania, on the 17th of
March, 1808. His father was of Dutch
and his mother of Quaker decent. An
untarnished name was the only heritage
they had to leave their son. His facilities
for acequiring an education were very
limited. His after life, however, demon
strated that his will would yield to no dif
ficulties which perseverance could over
come, that obstacles in his path gave birth
to the resolve that he would surmount
When quite young he left his home and
traveled on foot to the State of New York,
wishing to acquire a knowledge of some
branch of manufacturing industry. He
selected the fulling business, correctly cal
culating that one of the necessities of his
native district could be supplied by the
introduction of a fulling mill. He learned
the trade, returned and established what
was known for years as Covode's Woolen
Factory. Although his factory was small,
compared with the huge enterprises of
the present cay, it supplied the wants of
the neighborhood.
When these improvements by State and
company enterprise were completed, he
was among the first to originate schemes
for utilizing them. He became a trans
porter on the canal, and, while the railroad
was in progress, organized companies to
develop the coal-fields in western Pennsyl
vania, which it made accessible. In all
these he was a ruling and active spirit,
and aided to a great extent by his prudent
management they have prospered largely
and rewarded his sagacity and labors with
abundant success. His perseverance,
foresight, self confidence, his hopefulness,
and his honesty of purpose had all been
exercised in behalf of his immediate neigh
borhood, county, and State, but it was not
until he entered upon his political career
that those qualities became so conspicuous
as to attract the attention of the country
Before his election to Congress in 1854 h•
had been a candidate for the State senate
in the district composed of the counties
of Westmoreland and Somerset. Defeated
by small majority, the canvass demonstra
ted his hold upon the confidence of the
people. His party was in the minority,
but many opposed to him politically waiv
ed their adherence to public rule, casting
their votes for him as the Whig candidate.
In 1854 Mr. Covode, was for the first
time, a candidate for Congress in the then
nineteeth congressional district of Pennsyl
vania, and was elected. Ile was re-elected
in 1856, 1858, and 1860. In the legisla
tion immediately preceding the attempted
secession of the southern States he was a
prominent and courageous actor in resist
ing the encroachments of conspirators
against the Union and in exposing the
schemes for the extension of slavery. In
opposing the efforts to force the institution
upon Kansas lie battled with all his en
ergy, and became conspicuous for his in
dustry and labors as a chairman of a com
mittee to investigate the influences by
which this result was sought to be accom
In the Thirty-Sixth Congress, that im
mediately preceding the election of Mr.
Lincoln to Presidency, he contributed
largely in preparing the public mind for a
change in the policy upon which national
Government had been ministered. When
that change came and secession followed
Mr. Covode stood unflinchingly by the flag
of his country. He was not a man of
soft words and persuasive speech. The
time had come when it was to be decided
by the arbitrament of the sword whether
the Union should be preserved or be sev
ered into fragments. He advocated the
strengthening of the arm of the Govern
ment to meet the attack of its enemies.
His patriotic exhortations, though not
couched in the flowery language of the
rhetorician, were such as carried convic
tion to the minds of the people and roused
them to a sense of the impending dangers.
From the inauguration of the rebellion
until the 4th day of March, 1863, when
Mr. Covode voluntarily retired from Con
gress, after having served four successive
terms, he was recognized as the enthusias
tic defender of his country's weal and
safety, serving during that time with vig
or as a member of the joint Committee on
the Conduct of the War. Bat he gave
even stronger proof of his loyal devotion
than by his individual efforts as a member
of Congress. He gave to his country
three of sons to do battle in the field,
one of whom, Col. George Covode, was
killed in battle near Richmond; another
returned from the prison-house at Ander
sonville broken in health, and now re
mains a lingering evidence of the cruelty
there inflicted upon the unfortunate Union
prisoners; a third completed his term of
enlistment and was honorably. discharged.
At the close of the Thirity-Seventh
Congress Mr. Covode retired temporarily
from public life. Though in no official
position, he did not remain an inactive
spectator of the continued struggle of
parties. In 1862 and in 1864 his district
was carried by the Democrats. To effect
a change in the representation he again
became a candidate in 1866. His person
al and political popularity, backed by his
great energy, secured an election. In 1868
he was again chosen to represent his dis
trict in the House of Representatives, and
in 1869 he conducted the political 'cam
paign as chairman of the Republican State
central committee. Such is a brief sketch
of the leading incidents of his business
and public life, and they to a great extent
indicate his character.
He was not a man of learning ; he was a
man of intellect.. It was not cultivated
intellect which often led men to be mere
thinkers, whose thoughts end in dreams
and are sometimes afterward caught up
and made practical by the earnest workers
of the world. His was that busy, practi
cal brain which made him a man of action,
a type of the untiring working men who
are making their mark upon this active
century, who study their fellow-men more
than books and who are indispensable to
the earnest thinkers of the age. Earnest
thinkers and earnest workers need each
other. Earnest thought is earnest work
in one sense, but not in all senses. The
;earnest thought of the commander who
plans a campaign or maps out a battle
field may be earnest work for him ; but it
is not that kind of earnest work which
carries forts and routs opposing armies.
The men who do this kind of earnest
' work should live in history, as well as those
who plan it and direct it to be done.
I saw recently a large painting of the
battle of Gettysburg, ordered by the State
of Pennsylvania. It represents the pinch
of the fight, the repulse of Picket's
charge. Its central figure is a private
Union soldier—tall, muscular, with all the
energy of determined action apparent in
every feature and in every limb—with a
musket clenched frantically in hands, and
drawn to strike an assailant. He seems to
be the real leader of all who are behind
him. The commanding generals are in the
dim distance. I thought, as I looked upon
it, that the men of action are in our day
coming to the front.
Such a man was John Covode. His
speeches do not fill many columns of the
Globe. His actions have influenced events
which will employ the pens of
many historians; and if the thoughts and
the reasonings during our years of trial,
of such men as Stevens and Fessenden
among the dead, of others whom I may
not in good taste here name among the
living, shall afford food for the students
who shall come after us, the deeds of John
Covode, as they stand upon the same re
cord, in the same years, will command the
gratitude of the patriot's heart. In the
word-painting of history his name will
not be left out.
He was bold, energetic, self-reliant, and
persevering. He investigated for himself,
he decided for himself, and when he de
cided the next step was to act. Some
friends were proposing to him to examine
into the practicabillity of a railroad up the
Platte, and wished to submit the opinion
of an engineer. "Let us go and see for
ourselves," said Mr. Covode, and he went,
taking some of his friends with him. His
own examination decided his course upon
that question.
But although energetic and self-reliant,
he was not repellant nor selfish. Warm
as a partish, he was genial and generous
in social life and as a personal friend. I
will not say of him that he had no ene
mies; for if I did it would imply, in my
belief, that he had failed in some of life's
duties. He had the nerve to do right as
he saw the right ; and the man who does
that, either in private or public life, will
have enemies.
He was the friend and trusted counselor
of the poor and dependent. Having him
self come up from the vale of poverty, he
sympathized with the sorrows of those in
want. He certainly had never read in the
original Dido'a address to /Eneas, and it
may be could not have quoted Dryden's
translation of her sentiment—
"l learn to pity woes so like my own,"
but he did what was better than scanning
Latin or quoting English verse. When
the needy came to him he did not exhaust
his sympathy for the poor in sentiment for
their class. He ministered to the needy
man or woman before him asking aid.
I cannot refrain from expressing here
the thoughts that were prompted by the
scene at his funeral, which I attended up
on the invitation of the committee appoin
ted by the llouse. His residence was in
a deep and narrow valley. As we neared
it, Hendricks creek, named by the ances
tors of Senator Hendricks,
came in sight,
windin„(rits way along the foot of a high
hill. Steep hills were on every side of us,
and there seemed that there was no entlet
for the struggling stream. Butit fins its
way after many winding, and p4sing
through the tributaries of the Alle*any
flows on to the Gulf, mingling its inters
with that stream which, by its pnial
warmth, breaks up the frozen region of
the North. Was it this surrounding that
impelled John Covode to action ? Did
he look out over the high hills which on
every side shut him from the busy world
beyond, and resolve that he, too, with his
strong German common sense, keeling
him ever on the plans of right, with 'ais
warm Quaker heart throbbing in unison
with the aspirations of the oppressed for
freedom and the equal rights of men,
would go out and cast his influence into
the great gulf stream of enlightened and
advancing public sentiment which was
breaking up the polar sea of human bond
age ? This he had done, and he had lived
to see liberty proclaimed "through all the
land to all the inhabitants thereof."
But his race was run; and there he was
dead, his sorrowinc , b friends and stricken
wife and children, his sympathizingneigh
hors, all shocked by the suddenness and
severity- of the affliction. The loss sus
tained by the bereavedfamily is one which
no earthly hand can temper, no human
sympathy can lessen. The loss sustained
by the community in which he lived was
attested by the presence of the people of
all ranks and conditions of life to pay the
last tribute of respect to his memory. High
and low, rich and poor, were there. On
foot, on horsedack, in the road wagon, in
the carriage, in every way that men and
women coud travel, did the long funeral
procession wend its way to the little vil
lage church-yard in the county of his
birth, to lay him in his last resting-place
by the side of his gallant son, and sur
rounded by the tablets which tell the
"short and simple annals of the poor."
If a man's life has not impressed his fel
low-men, his funeral will not. But his
funeral may tell how his life has impressed
them ; and, standing there, no man can
doubt the sincerity of the sorrow which his
death had occasioned amono• ' those who
knew best. A bad man could not be so
mourned. Waken as he was, without warn
ing, away from the busy scenes of life's ac
tivic,.s, when looking forward to new and
imp +rtant enterprises, his death admonish
es us who are engaged, as he was, in public
cares and duties, of the uncertainty of life
and of the value of our time, that we
