Grand Republican Rally.
In view of the pres ß nt distraoted state of
national affairs, the Republicans of Centre
Couiitjr have concluded to hold a Grand Mars
WEDNESDAY EVENING, Jan'y., 30.b.
This is no time for party animosity, and
every Democrat in Centre County is cotdial
ly invited to attend. Come Democrats, let
us meet as one eoniraon brotherhood and de
liberate on the dangers that now threaten
ear hitherto happy country. The Wide
Awakes will not parade, as was originally
designed, but eyery member of this noble
band should be prevent at the meeting.
Hon. Edgar A. Cowan, and Hon- David
Wilmot, have been invited to attend and ad-'
dress the meeting. Let there be a full turn
We find the following curd in last week's
Issue of the Press.
T the People of Centre County.
Without dpnymg the right of editors to
sail political meetings when-they see fit,
common courtesy, and a consideration for
the harmonic us action of the party, would
seem to demand, at least, consultation. But
higher considerntior n induce me, as Chair
man of this County Executive Committee, at
this tirno, n protest against the unauthorized
eall issued from tne Centre Democrat office,
its manner, spirit ar.a objeot. The good ol
the country demands no such meetings. Ail
partisan efforts fail, and only add fuel to t ie
flame. The stability of our Government is
endangered. The Union is no longer cm sd
cred safe. We want no men to refleot up at
ths momentous issues now tresonied, witu t
too), calm and deliberate judgement. Ail
party considerations should y eld to a pani
otic fidelity to the G'v rmnent. It is no
time to call upon a party. It any meeting at
the January Court is considered advisable,
let the people of Centre county, irrespective
of party, meet 10 consult how they nviy host
provo their devotion to the Uniuu and tbrir
loyalty to that government which has enrich
ed them witb inestimable blessings. I sub
mit tbe-e suggestions to the Americans and
Republicans of Bentre county, in vindication
of the course of the County Committee in not
responding so the ill-timed call for a meeting
®f tbe party in connection with the Wide
Awakes at the January Court.
Chairman County Executive Committee.
There is not, and should, not be any quar
rel between Mr. Blanchard and myself. And
so far as I am concerned there shall be Done,
I am unwilling, after, having worked for six
years with ail my p, war, and vr.th All
the ability, be it iittle or much, which I
possess, for the redemption of Centre county
from the thraildom of Locofocaism, and for
the ascendency cf the glorious principles of
the Amifiean Republican party, to do any
thing which would mar the peace and har
mony of that party, or place again in the mi
nority the great principles advocated by
Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Clay, Web
• ster, and other mighty intellects of their day
aDd generation, whose names now occupy a
conspicuous placo in the glorious constella
tion of American statesmen. The principles
of our party are based upon Liberty aod Jus
tice. With freedom as the corner-stone of
the great fabric reared by the wisdom of our
fathers, and purchased,aye, comented by the
bsrt blood of tho nation , anil with " equal
and exact justice to all""' emblnsoned in char
acters of living light upon its mnjeatic sp r
as it rises towering to heaven, pleading as ii
were, witb the Oo'd of Liberty, to dca'jastly
and mercifully with his erring creatuies; to
break the galling yoke of oppeasion ; to Lid
the oppressed go free.and commanding all "to
' "remember those who are in bonds as bou-id
with them ;" wi'h these wa say as the mate
rial out of which ami upon which our G iv
trnmei.t and the principles of our party are
founded, it is not so easy as Nlr. Blanchard
might'imagine, to endanger the stability of
por government, or to cast aside as ft thing
■ of no value the great and iibcrty-loviug doc
trines of the Republican party. Firm as the
everlasting hills will stand the triumphant
American Republican parly, and while it en
dures tha suUjijiy of our government cannot
he e rid an g ere 1 ,, the Union cannot be destroy
ed, ali p.irM&ttt, weak-kneed uod traitorous
considerations to, the contrary notwithstand
But, says Mr. Blanchn.rd, "the stability of
nur Government is endangered:—the Union
it no longer safe." And then calls upon
men to reflect upon the momentous issues
now presented, with a coo 1 , calm and delib
erate judgement, ivc. Here we must ask the
question, if the Union is endangered, how
aod by whom has it been endangered ? llow
could the Republican party have endangered
the Union when it has never at any time bad
the control of any. branch of t'e Federal Gov
ernment? For more than thirty years the
... Locofoco party has held almost undisputed
and unlimited sway to the General Govern
ment. For the same number of jcars the
Slave ocracy have controled the Democratic
party, and led it on to dissolution and to
(pin, and now the very mea who were loud-:
est in their paeans of praise to the Democrat
ic party, are the very men that are advocat
ing secession, and therefore treason upon the
floors of our National Congress, and in near
ly half the States ot this great and mighty
Republic. Who are the men who are stand
ing up in the South for the Union, the Con
stitution, and the enforcement of the Laws ?
We answer, the good and 1 true men, almost
without exception, who formerly acted and
co-operated with the old conservative party
of which Henry Clay was tbs great embodie
meot. What does all this proye ? Simply
this: that the leaders of the Democratic par
ty, from President Buchanan down to the
lowest menial in the North or South, who is
yet willing to do his bidding, a-re now, and
have been fur years, plotting treason against
the Government—ready at a minutes warn
ing to apply the toreh of eivil war to this fair
fabric tie very moment that the people in
their sovereign capacity should declare that
tbay were rvo longer competent to control the
helm of Suite. Rule or ruin has been the
m >t'o of the Dean n atie leaders of this coun
i try fur ti;<- past thirty years. 'This is history.
I This we have frequently j reclaimed through
our paper and fro u the stump. This great
uutb we now desire that all the people sbo'd
know. Hence our call for a Grand Rally of
the Republicans and honest Democrats of Cen
tre county, on Wednesday evening of the Jan.
While 1 ! are planted myself upon Jaclt
soman pr -unds, and have repeatedly said
that tho Union must and shall be preserved,
though it cost me every drop of blood in my
veins, I am unwilling to go into a doughface
Union meeting with roaligners and traducors>
and with hypocritical demagogues who can
only speak of my party as the AVue&'Repub
lican party, and of myself as a Black Re
publican. Much as I love the Union, I can
not consent to go into a meeting with the
le ders of the Democratic party, who have
by their adherence to that now defunct or
ganization, aided by "their voice and their
votes to bring upon the greatest and best
Government God ever, gave to man, its pres
ent humiliation and disgrace. I cannot, in
short, cousent to take part in any meeting
where I cannot defend my party and its prin
ciples from the outrageous slanders and false
hoods heaped upon it by soulless dema
gogues both North and South.
But. says Mr. Blanohard, "higher consid
erations induce me, as Chairman of tbe
County Executiva Committee, at tbis time,
to protest against ths unauthorized call is
sued from the Centre Democrat office," &c.
Chairman of the Ciunty Committee, for
sooth ! An unauthorized call for a meeting
issued from the Democrat office ! As we said
befoie, while we seek no quarrel with Mr.
Blaocbard, and shall quarrel with DO man
unless in self defence ws must potest against
Mr. Blanchard usurping authority which he
doss not possess. Mr. BlaDobard was Chair
man of the County Committee in 1859. But
the party is now without a Chairman, as the
Convention which met last August adjourn
ed wirhnut renewing the lease of Mr. Bianch
ard's aathori'j. The Convention, we say,
adjourned without appointing Mr. Blanchard
Cbiirman, the motion to continue the old
Committee never having been put. This be
ing the ca-e, whence, wo ask, does Mr.
Blanchard derive his authority ? But he
gays again, " without denying the right of
editors to call political meetings," &q. The
great causa of complaint then, is not that we
called the tapeting, but that we did not con
sult Mr Bkochnrd. Now if this were true
we would be very sorry to injure Mr. Blanch
ard's feelings or pluck ono laurel from the
cap of his fancied power and greatness. But
we did, in as humble a manner, ill Our rough
aid uncouth way, as we knew how, consult
Mr. Blanchard in regard to calling a meet
ing, ani ihat tvitbout receiving either his ap
proval or disapprobation. We did, however,
oonsult Gov. Curtiu, who said "by all means
call the meeting, ths time has come when
the people should understand the causes
which have led to the-present political arisis."
We did more. We consulted more than one
hundred of the good and true men of our
farty, all of whom advised us to call the
Authority or uo authority the meeting has
been called, and if our life is spared it will
be held. The oall to tbe Wide Awakes is
but a newspaper article, in which ibesa no
ble and indefatigable auxiliaries of the Re
publican party were informed, that if they
wished to come with their lamps trimed aod
brightly burning they could do so in wel
c ni->. Wide-A wakes, we still extend tbe
invita'ion. We hope you wili come. But we
are not fastidious. Come either with or with
out your lamps, as you in your " cool, calm
and deliberate" judgement may think best.
We cannot for the life of us ses why tbe Dem
ocrats should refuse to fight far the Union
because tbe Wide-Awakes are for the Uc-
linnest Democrats, by reference to the call
fiest announced, you will s'6 that vou are
most cordially invited. Wo believe the ma
jority of those who nre still acting with the
Democratic party in this county, are loyal
to the U. ion and tbe Consti'utuin, and we
further belieye that this very fao% when they
learn tbat oil this trouble has l.ern precipi
tated upon the country by their Senators,
Cabinet officers, leadrrs and slave drivers of
the South, for the purpose of ex'ending the
area uf bu oian bondage, for their own per
sonal aggrandizement, as well as to enable
them to con inue to foroe upon the North and
the whole country their ruinous FREE TRADE
policy ; tbat they will renounceand denounce
the Democratic organization as we have done,
forever and that they will hereafter be found
battling with us in favor of justice, liberty
and the rights of Iran.
Working men of all parties—Americans,
Wide-Awakes! ye noble and true men of
Centre, come out in your strength aod bear
tbe lectures on the state of the Union and
the caure? which led to the present political
crisis. We have secured the Court House
from the Commissioners, and have also in
vited Edgar A. Cowan, onr new U- S. Sena
tor, and Hon. David Wilmot to be present
and address the meeting. So iQuch then for
Mr. Blanchard's pronuoeiamente.
EDITOR or THE DEMOCRAT : 1
Dear Sir .'—l
see a call in the last issue of your paper for
a Grand Republican Rally on Wednesday
evening of the January Court. I also see a
card in the Press from Mr. Blanohard, re
monstrating against the mating—nweithc
doss let the meeting go on. Jf the Chairman
of the County Committee will not cull a
meeting.in accordance witb the desire of our
people we cannot.fielp it-. Eet me say here,
we do not want any more doughface " Union
Saving Heelings," nor anything that will be
equivalent to an admission that our party or
ganization is to back down from the Chicago
Platform. Our party here, is of the opinion
that the time for compromises is either past
or not yet come. We cannot compromise
with a threat of disunion hold over our heads.
Be particular to have the meeting go on, on
the basis of the Constitution and the Union.—
It would be right and proper for the Wide-
Awakes to attend ; but since a question has
been raised lest their presence should pro
duce any disaffection, perhaps we had better
omit that feature of our meeting.
The above communication is from ooe of
our staunch old party leaders, and was writ
ten us as a private letter ; but since it con
tains matters of public interest we lay it be
fore our readers. Ths writer administers a
severe rebuke to Mr. Blanchard for his quib
bling, and seems to think there arc other
men in Centre county who are members of
the Republican party, and whose opinions
are entitled to as much respect as the Chair
man's. We are sorry Mr. Blanchard pub
lished that foolish letter, as it was entirely
uncalled for. and by doing so he has subjec
ted himself to many misapprehensions among
his friends. We would here say to all, that
we believe Mr. Blanchard has at heart the
success of our party as much as any man.—
So far from having any desire to weaken and
distract the party be really desires to
strengthen and harmonize it. He is an hon
est man, a good lawyer, but by no means a
politician. We beg our friends, the WiJe-
Awakes, to take no offence at his card, as he
ment no disrespect to them. Had Mr. B anch
erd come to U9 we would have heard all he
had to say, and after carefully weighing his
opinions, acted as we thought would best
conduce to the success of our party. Again
vte say, it is to be regretted that Mr. Blauch
ard published bis card as it was iil-timed.
We, however, will wage no quarrrel with
tim for doing so, but leave him alone, be
lieving that is the best way to humble a
proud man. Like the South Carolinia re
bellionists, we admire his pluclt, but dephre
One whuld be led to suppose frum th 9 au
thoritative tone of El. Blanchard's card in
last weeks Press tbat he was the Republican
party of Centre county. lie gravely tells us
that we had no authority to call a meeting
without o insulting his highness Lord chief
Admiral, of the kid Glove Gentry. We con
suited the people of Centre Co., and as they
wanted a meeting we callecl it,-Mr. Blanchard
to the contrary notwitb9taading. The Cen
tre Democrat is the peoples and i ct
the suple tool of a Bellefonte clique. It is
free and independent and is riot to bo con
troled by Ed; Blanchard, or any one else.—
No man or set of mvD, can dictate to ue; we
ore for the people, not the politicians. If
some men had their own way.a poor man
would never bold an office iu Centre C'>,—
Our paper has ever beea the poor tr.a.,s friend
and as such has been most liberally suppor
ted by the people ; for this we feel thankful.
When evr the people of Centre county want
a meeting or anything else we will serve
them, and let ha who dares, oppose the will
of tbe masses. Here the people are sovereign
and resting on tbo broad shoulders of the
hardy SODS of toil, we defy opposition. Men
of.Centre Co , you have a paper like your
selves free and independent, a paper that ad
vocates the election of poor men to office, and
that dares at all times to reflect ycur wishes
without fear favor or affection- It stands up
manfully for you, and you must stand up for
it. We call upon you now to come forward
and sustain your "old organ" in the lu'ure,
as you have in thi past. Let the meeting on
the 30ih be tbe largest ever held in the
Gen. Cameron's appointment to a seat in
the Cabinet is bailed by every lover of the
Union with joy, as indicative of the charac
ter of the incoming Administration, as Gau.
Cameron is known to be pre-eminently a na
tional man, and no other appointment could
at tho time have so greatly complimented the
conservative old. Keystone ; in everything
necessary to make a statesman, Gen. Came
ron is unequalod, he is not even lacking in,
that true zeal cf greatness, the euvy and ma
lignant hatred of tnose who desire his fame,
but lack the brains to emulate it. Gen. Cam
eron will be a tower of strength to the new
administration,aDd as a popular appointment
would indeed be bard to equal.
Since writing the above, a set of corrupt
politicians, headed by two persons by tbe
name of M'Clure and Mann, have been to see
Mr. Lincoln, and endeavored to pursuade
him to recall tbe appointment of Mr. Cam
eron. What impression they left on the
mind of tbe Piesident elect we do not know,
but if Mr. Lincoln was as well acquainted
with them as some people ef this State are,
he would not have given the political adven
turers a hearing. Under tbe present cir
cumstances, there is some talk of Mr. Cam
eron's declining tbe position tendered him.
Tbis wo hope for the good of the oountry,
and the welfare of the party in thraJScate.-he
will nut do, but if the President elect, has
changed sis mind in regard to the appointed,
let him recall the appointment, and then th e
people will know if Mr. Lia®>ln is really
as C m as his friends claim bim to be.

The inauguration of Governor Cuftin was
a graed affair. A crowd of not less than
20.000 people assembled to witness the pro

Hon Ed Cowan
Ed. Cowan is Senator in room of weak
kneed Bigler. In our opinion he is the very
man for the position. The Democrat was
the first paDer in the State to nominate him
for that place. The people of Centre county
will remember a man that made a great
speech in our town at tbe Grand Repub'ioan
Rally last August. The new Senator is the
same man. He is the first man that ever en
tirely satisfied our people on the slavery
question. Ilis masterly exposition of the
peculiar institution made us hundreds of
votes in the late cempalgn. Cowan was our
man, and we are glad he succeeded. Wilmot
must now take the t-hort terra aod then Penn
sylvania will be properly represeatel. Our
people will be delighted to bear of Cowan's
success, though Wilmot was preferred by
The Democracy Responsib'e for DTI'I
Why is it that in a period of plenty, times
should be tight and mechanics and laboring
men be throwed out of employment ? There
is money in the country in abnndatce. The
grain crop of the country bas been good,
while that of Europe has been short. In
deed, they have been, and are still obliged
to buy ol us, remitting largely of their spe
cie to pay us for our surplus grain. Apd
yet trade is stagnant. Why, we ask again,
is all this ? We will anwer. It is because
the Democratic party have determined to
produce a crisis in monetary affairs to pun
ish the country for turning them out ol pow
er, They have been in office so 1 ng that
■thev begin to feel that tbe government was
theirs by right ; and rather than permit
others to wield the power fbey have so long
held and abused, they prefer to fee a disso~
lution of the Union-. And to aid in effecting
this thev have so vilified and misrepresen
ted tho R: publican party to the people of the
South as to stir in them a spirit of bitter
'animosity atd rebellion to tb9 Administra
tion of Lincoln. This has paralysed trade
■ and thrown thousand* nut of employment at
a season when its effects are mi'St keenly
felt. Had the Democratic leaders ot the
North bepn honest and trutblul, aod had
they lnyalty advocated the fulfillment of the
will of the people as constitutiunally express
ed at the bullot-bcx. this orisis never would
have oocurred. L?t every mechanic aod
laboring man take a note of these facto. A
dav of reckoning will come. Then woe to
tbe Democratic demagogues who have aided
and abetted this disunion movement. Co
The Feeling in the Free States-
There is such a thing as " over shooting
| the mark." This is the case with the 6eces
ionists. They have thought to frighten and
intimidate the North: hut they find that
their course bas rather bad the tend'encv to
arouse the masses of the people of the Free
States. Indeed the spirit manifested by the
secessionists and the weakness h'therto ex
hibited by President Buchanan have awak
ened the people of the North to the necessity
of maint-aining the integrity of the Union at
all hazards. Even in the city of New York,
it is said that, at an hour's warning, one
hundred thousand men would be ready to ge
to Charleston to col'rct the revenues accor
ding to the laws. And this is tbe case in
most of the Northern Sta'es, The" people
are loynl and patriotic. They ere in favor
cf the Union and the enfo-cement of tbe
laws.' Traitors and treason will Cod no
quarter at their hands.
Facts to he Remembered
REMEMBER, tbat the Republicans have
never yet had the control of a single branch
of the Federal Givernmer.r. Whatever
wrongs the South had ever suffered—if they
have suffered auy—tbe Republicans are not
responsible for. Stick a pin here.
REMEMBER, that tho Loco-focos have had
the general Government in their hands s'ead
ily for more than T/iiity years'. They have
had the engineeriniog of public agairs, and
are fully responsible for what they have
done. Stick another pin here.
REMEMBER, that the Slave-holders have
controlled the Democratic pvrty for tho past
Thirty years. The very men who are the
loudest for eeocssion are the vsry men who
have really had the Federal Government uu
der their thumbs. If they have beeu wrong
ed they bave done it themselves.
A STATUE MADE TO SPEAR —The statue of
Geu. Jackson, before tbe President's house,
was most curiously arnamented the other
morning. The old pnti-Secessionist held in
bis hand the stars and stripes, while the blue
cockade was tied under the tail of the horse.
Great indignation was felt by the seenders,
and it is rumored tbat they will ask far an
fgg* Gov, Hfeks, of Maryland, has pub
lished u long address to the citizens of that
State, giving his reaeons tor refusing to con
vene an extra session of the legislature. The
document abounds in Union sentiments.
AH over the country, wherever they
have a caDnon, the peopb are firing salutes
in honor of the act of Major Anderson, in
spiking the guns and evacuating Fort Moul
trie, and thus heading off secession treason.

Aggression and Secession
MR. EDITOR : The continuous cry of ag
gression that has been raised by Southern
agaiust Northern States, seems not only to
have imbued the South with the idea that
they have been teachermsly dealt with, but
many of the noble minds ot tha North have
had their sympathies so far excited by the
oft repeated cry, that they have, at last suc
cumbed to the falsehood.
* Believio:? that the best interest of each
state would be best secured by a union of
the whole under one government, the people
by their representatives dralted and adopted
the corstitution of these United States, as the
basis of a national Government whose leg
islative powers should be ve&ted in a Con
gress, and Senate of the United States. In
the development of the country under this
Dew government, different .sections wre
fcund to be adapted to different pursuits, and'
Afferent interests soon begun to oall upon
CoDgrtss for protection, acneungst which we
may note the Cotton, Tobacco and other pro
ducts of the South, which were promptly se
cured by legislation without a single dissen
ting vote from any northern state.
As the mineral resources of tho nortif and
its adoption to manufacture as well as agri
culture begun to be understood, it was found
necessary to ask Congress fur that protection
from foreign competition which would enable
us to employ our own labor, in the develop
ment ot our mineral wealth and manufactu
ring ioterests, the spirit in which this re
quest was riceived by the Southern states is
patent to the world; opposition little start of
the most deadly hostility at once firtd the
southern heart, and one state at least took
initiatory steps for the dissolution ot the Con
federady rather than see northern labor so
protected as to enable H to compete with tho
6i'ave labor of tiie eontb ; and this same idea
that the free labor of the north should not
be allowed to compete either with the serf
labor of the old world, or, the owned labor of
the Southern states, has caused in them a
steady and continued opposition to all pro
tection for northern products until our mtu
nfac'ories are ruined, and our labor has been
dtiven to seek an outlet in the wilds of the
west where they might leisonally expect
that they would be allowed to tuild houses,
and open homes for themselves in peace, but
even n the wilderness owned labor must
persecute their fttill, their houses most be
burr t, their fa ins laid waste, their families
bu c'eml, their laws trampled upoD, and a
slave-eodc forced upon them at the point of
Again when tfce South asked Congress to
protect their right in tbeir Degro's by passing
a reudi ion fugitive slave law, no Northern
Sta-e threatened to dissolve the Union, tho'
by their State Constitutions, no coersion
could b3 practised, except upon a fugitive
from justice, aud consequently the law was
an aggression on the constitutional rights of
every lVeo state ; and even now a number of
the Southern states are threatening to dis
solve the Union, because among other tbiDgs
'cf which they complain they say that, the
free States have passed laws forbiding kid
napping and which prevents the South from
stealing free negroes of the North, and mo
king slaves of them in the cotton Holds of the

by South Carolina, would it be well for ous
Si-na-ots and members of Cungrees from toe
North, to put sackol&tb on their loms, and
ropes on their heads, (or round their necks.)
ar.d go to this cbivalric and warlike people,
and say to them, "if you will only forgive us
this time and stay iu Ibe Union, vou may
6teal evry frß6 negro iu the North, and we
won't say a word, and if this is not enough,
why there are our Orphan Asylums, you ra i
empty tnem and 'take the occupants S uth
and call them quadroons, there will be no
danger for they havb no friends to in
conven'ent inquiries; and rathsr than you
should be put to inconvenience, if you are
still too short of slaves, we will allow you to
take the poor laborers of the North, such as
may best suit you, until your cotton fields
are amply supplied ; and so far as electing a
President i 3 concerned, we acknowledge that
we knew that, the South did not allow us to
elect a man from one nf the Free States, no
matter what his politics were, and we are
soriy that we rebelled against your orders,
and promise that we will di si no more, but
always ask you who we shall vote for, if you
will only stay in the Union and not secede."
The Democracy and the Encroachments
Seventy years ago the Democratic party
