Your eminently palriotio and sterling
Democratic letter has just been re
ceived and read with great satisfac
tion. For the (Uttering manner in
which you address me and ask my
opinions on tfie coarse to be pursued,
in the future, you have my sincere
thanks. I will answer you with that
unrestrained frankness and candor
which has always characterized my
political utterances, which your letter
seems to anticipate and demand.
I am glad you and the gallant De.
mocrury of Knox are not demoralized
at our recent defeat by the imported
nogro voto, Philadelphia and New
York repealers and ballot-box suffers
together with the corrupt use of Lam
eron's money, stolen from the United
States and St to Treasuries. These
things are no longor matters of con
jcclure, but are openly boasted of by
the vilo perpetrators of fraud and vio
lence on tbo elective franchise. IIu-
miliating as thvso things must be to
all honest Pennsylvanians.they furnish
no reason why we should surrender to
the scoundrels who practice these out
rages upon us. Our cause, which is
simply that of constitutional liberty
and self-government, although for the
moment checked, ia not so badly fa I

causo of common sense and justice and
liberty, for which wo struggle, is no
worse off now than the samo good

verdict of returning reason; unti

It Is k cowardice which ihoold make ,

of States' rights. Let ny man who

the late election, so called, has really
established nothing. A certain amount
of brute momentum has overcome a
esncr amount of rcaiatance. Bui the
Constitution still elands, with ono
party opposed to It and another for it.
The Democracy is for it, and although
at the present moment in the minori
ty, it by no means proposos to yield
the sacred ground to this noisy foe.
The anti-States' rights, or old Federal
party, was in a minority Irom the
lose of John Adams administration,
1800, to the election ot Abraham
Lincoln. Indeed, during nil that pe
riod it lay buried, for tho Whig parly
was, as well as the Democracy, a
States' rights party. ' Tho party that
just now rules this country cume out
of tbe tombs even after Lincoln oelec

ancient country of the Gadarenes, en
tered into the men insioad of swine,
and drovo them down the steep pluces
nto a sea of blood
But, does a swinish majority dis
hearten us? Not if we are men: not
f we are patriots. We must fight this
battle of liberty, if nocossary, ns lung
as we livo; and if it is not settled be
fore our dentin let us bequeath tho
sacred struggle to our children, and
lo their children, as long as there is
ono bravo and virtuous man loft on
In looking for tho redemption of
our country we must base our expec
tations upon influences that have no
reference to Executive action. Nor
can at present such expectations be
based upon any sort of recognition f
the lawfulness of those bills of Con
gress. There mut be a great and de
termined party, which sternly refuses
to admit the legality of this indeceni
rump of a Congress, and which wil'
Droclaim all its sou null and void. An
long as this body is treated as a Cob
grcss within the meaning of the Con
slitution, and as long as its acts are
regarded as law, without a resolute
and uncompromising protesting parly
it is usuless and foolieih to cherish
hope for the salvation of the country
We have at all times the right of ap
pealing to. the ballot, but we have
also, alas I an illustration of what ap

election in this State and in North
and South Carolina. There eeuma lo
be no longer a legnl ballot. When
the vote of every patriotic Slate ia to

are to be made by a set of military
vagabonds without the least restraint
or supervision of law ; when, whether

lion depends not upon the population
but upon tho will of those unprinci
pled tools of Congress, lbs mnr'ial

Are wo to be looked upon as a nation
of fools, as well as a nation of cowards ?
Lot us keep a purty in the fluid, al

tho world that the reaaon, and the
only teason, why all the dostroyers of
our Constitution snd the architect of
our dospotism are not overwhelmingly
srrested In their illegal careers is the
want of a loud and defiant proclama
tion of their death-doserving crimes
and the justice and legality of forcible
resistance. 1ml J tnaun, sir, is to
perpetually assert the right of forcible
resistance to and (he wrong and sbume
of passive acquicaence in the despotic
ecu of illegul power. "Preserve the
manhood of public opinion, even if we
lack the couruge to defend our liberty.
Fearlessly and unceasingly proclaim
what we huve an etornal right to do,
whether it is our policy to immediate
ly enforco that right or not." Edu
cate and inspire '.he peoplo with a
knowledgo of tho right. The cause of
our country is by no means so desper
ate that 'it cannot be saved by the
patriotism and courage even by a mi
norily. If Democracy and liberty
perish together it will not be on ac
count of the strength of despotism,
but because of the weakness of the
will and resolution of the party of
liberty. No nation ever lostils liber
ty which did not first loose its virtue
and its courngo. No country was
over reduced to such slraits that even
few brave and determined men
could not save it. Once, when the
liberty of Rome was threatened,
during youth, Caius Muciua, inspired
hy three hundred brave and nolle
Romans, forced the tyrant Porsenna
to relinquish his grasp, and liberty
was preserved by the coursgo and
patriotism of only three hundred of
her youths. Is there no lesson in all
this lo the hundred tyrants or so who
are ihe authors and leaders of all the
oppressive abominations of Congress ?
Let them rend history and ask them
selves whether the people, whose
rights they are cruahing and whose
property they are stealing, havo not a
natural, political, religious and eternal
right to confiscate their heads and to
throw their earcassee to be devourod
hy tho sea. There stand the sacred
and inalienable right of the mailer.
Are there not three hundred, nay, are
there not three millions, of young men
la this country lo swear to the im
mortal Gods thai Americun liberty
si in 1 1 live, even though every tyrant
shall perish from the fuuo of tho earth f
The history of llio strugglo of Ro
man liberty is full of similar instruct
ivo lessons. Tho Emperor Vitelline
was in all his instincts and passions
such another wretch as a Grant,
Hliinton, or a licast LSutlcr. lie was
mudo Emperor by the bayonets of his
soldiers, the sumo as Grunt was made
Pi ident by his. But tho tyrant Yi
tol (us soon wore out tho patience o!
thejtoman people by opptossions not
a iit greater than thnso devised hy
nuri Yilellius, and a wish stirred the
heart of every virtuous bosom in Rome
to ere tho monitor destroyed. On
darja writing was put up in the forum
will, theso torriblo but just words
"Vl, in the name of the ancient Chal
deits, give Vilellius warning to do-
pari this lifo by the calends of Octo
ber f The warning proved itself to
be 10 will of the Gods, for it was the
vol i of an oppressed people. The
moi 'tor was druggod from his hiding
pin- i, into which lie had crept liko a
dog and wilh a halter about his neck
drained through the streets to the
pultc forum, and after being covered
will dirt and filth and loaded with ull
son of reproaches, he was literally
bca; to dcjtth, ofler which they throw
him nlo He river. Not only all Rome
but ill civilized mankind pronounced
the doom of the tyrant just and right
eous. Unless juslico is dead and mankind
givon up to be ruled hy devils, the
calends of Oclohor will surely some
day overtake such wrclches as a
Grant, a Sheridan, a Butler, a Ilolt
and a Cameron. Among a free peoplo

This is the work of Mexico, and her

But hotter fur and greater than any

ment as a permanent triumph of peace
and amove forward in iho best inter

at once as a lroni and protrressive
