SPEECH OF HON. GEO. SANDERSON,
- IDF LANCASTER,
Delivered-before the - Democralic Crntral Club
of Pliiladelphia t - aii Saturday evening,
• April 11, 1 563.
* • .* * * * *
So far as conducting,• the ge'Vernment
on Constitutional principles, or Carrying
on the war successfully for the suppress. :
ion of the rebellion, is' concerned, the ad- !
Iministration has beien a total failure, and,
such it will continue to he to the. end of j
the chapter. The - abolition party has no
administrative 'abilities, It knows noth'
ing, and can learn nothing. It is in the ..
'last throes of a violent dissolution. It was
,born 'in fraud, baptized in blood, and will
die in infamy. All the conServative feel
ing of the country— an the instincts of the
anglo-saxon the_int crests of agri
culture, cpthine'ree and manufactutzes7—ali
the Florioni'iraditi,ans of the past history
of our country, are .
,against that 'sectional
political 'organization. In itstarbr, to be
sure, ar corrupt and unprincipled
cians, who would sell the liberties of their
country' for place and pottier;. soulless
ic.ontractors and heartless swindlers who
!'bow down at the shrine of-the almighfy
greenback; the basek and_ malignant pas
,sison that can'only be` satiated by the shed
ding of more blood in this great carnival '
of death; the insolent tyranny that would:
_conflicting opinions by the;
bloody agency of the sword, lu d the still
more odious ; tyraimy of the pulpit, That
would crush out the last remnant of civil
liberty by the establishment of a sangnin'-
ary theocracy,. IVliich would rather the
white race should perish from the land
than that liberty and equality, in the
name of God and for the `advancement of
. nis simuld ,be denied the Ameri
i-can citizen of African descent.'
The abolition. party - eannot restore the
old Union if it would, and. would not if it
could. It is impotent for goon, and only
powerfnl fin• e••il. '•This is apparent from
its whole histnry, and• was full• . exempli
lied by Thaddeus Stevens, the acknowl-
edged administration. leader .in the last;
congress, in bt 'ldly avowing. himself as
being unalterably opposed to any recon
struction of the " Union as
..•it• was, with
the Constitution as it is," and this treason
able declaration was" substantially repeat
ed by hint at Republican meeting in the
city of LancaSter, on Saturcka'r last—by
Gen. Butler at a recent' meeting in New
110 Lac baPtt atlriet ion ed by all th.; ,
feinlition newspapers north of Mason and"
Dixon's line. The partyin PoWer, there
; fore,have neither the ability nor inclines
1 lion, judging from their speeches and acts,
to restore the Unita/ of our fathers, or
preserve :American liberty. Its principles
are not those which.lielat the base of the
Constitution l —not titoe which ate found-
ed on right and. justice-Lbut are only
-such dagmaS as are incomiAtible with the
mitd and diffused governments* of the sev
eral States , ; which made the nation what
it was-prior to the breaking out of this
unnatural, - fratricidal war. Republican-'
ism; (says an.ablewriter,) in the sense at ,
tached toithe word by the Republicans,
aedistinguished by the Democrats, is in
compatible with liberty.' 'lt ignores the
right :to disagree. It *ill not tolerate 'ad;
verge or -hostile discussion. It protests a
zamkJst personal -liberty: It.sets the' theo .
ry above she fact. It would render, the,
;. drinking of a glass of wine in the state of
- . .Bline.as great asocial sin, or public trea
son,'n.s, the' holding.a. black- man in bon.:
dage in South Carolina orXirginia. It
loudly asserts its own freedom to do what
it pleases, but will nOt,. allow 'dissentients
the same privilege. It
,would thrust its
principles down- the throats of recalci
trants at the point of the bayonet. With
all its, faults, it may succeed in the effort
to make a nation of the Northern people;
butif it ns
does, it will be at the expee of
. . •
every Constitutional right which', Ameri
cans, up to the Outburst of , this miserable
war, were proud to uphold. Leaving out
of view 'the negro question, and - all,-that
relates to it, the principles of the republi
can Or abolition party are Simply those of
a despotism—a bald and naked despotism.
Mr. Lineoln.iA in reality, at moment,
clothed with-imperial power, and will be
the precursor of a second despot more in
lelligent and iron-handed than himself, if
the war be rinch - longer _protracted. A
strong War and a Weak governmkt—can
not long exist on the -same soil. To carry
on - a great-domestic war, there mustbe a
strong .. Gpvernment 7 —a. strong
ment must'be a centralization- 7 and a cen-
Aralizatiott must be a dePotism2: The abo
litionists,,irue-tO'tbeir despotic principleS
- and instinvts, are willingly engaged in do
ing their utmost' so as to centralize the
government and to eliminate the question
of State rights - from all future controver
sy-, and to con' ert the 'North into as ho- .
mogenous a unity as the'.empire of France.
But the 'Democrats are accused 'of 'be
ing disloyal, because they will not-stultify
themselves by:-shouting hosannas to Ab
raham LinC,Oln, and say,by their _words aqd
actions, that ' the king-can do no WrOng.'
The term - loyalty is- degned'by Webster
and other lexicographers to Mean
ty tb a prince- or , sovereign: and a loyalist
according to the same authority; a per
lon- who adheres to'his sower =
eign or , prince, .and ,defends hia cause in
MONTROSE, PA.,JTUESDAY, MAY 12; 1863.
dent Lincoln is neither a prince or a sov
ereign, but a public servant, 'clothed with
a little briefauthority by the Constitu- .1
tion„ who . after-having strutted hiS hour
upon the stage of public affairs, will re
turn to his , -western hotrie q wiser, if not a
better titan, fo - t:having been elevated to a
position which he was totally incompetent
to till With either credit -5 to himselt or: to
the advantage of the country. -Democrats
are loyal to the Constitution and laws, the
only test of loyalty known': in the United
States. The sovereignty in this country
is in the people._ An American, therefore,
May be disloyal to himself, but he cannot
be to a mere creature of his'-citkn making,
whether be' be a President; - or Constable,l
If faithless- to law, constitutionally enact
ed by the proper authorities, he becomes
disloyal to himself as a sovereign, for, as
a eitizen,,he is presumed to have made, or.
assisted in making the law in question.—
therefore, I take it, is the true test
of loyalty among us, and every true Dem
ocrat, who reveres the Constitution and
laws, is a loyal man in the only sense in
which the term "can , be properly ,used in
this country. - The terms of reproach and
obloquy, then, . with Which, our ears have
been assailed for the fait two years, are
not' only harmless ; bat meaningless, and
will, in-- due time; i re-act upon the party
using them.: In the reign of Jahn Adams
they were --Failed Jhcobiris.; . luring Ale
administration of Andrew Jackson, (God
bless the hero's memory !) they Were call
ed Locofocos; and, now, forsooth, they
are called copperheads! But-, as Jacob
ins they hurled thd• elder Adams from
power; as Locofocos, they rallied around
the patriot statesnuin of the Hermitage;
and, nobly sustained him - in his great -Con
troversy with the money - power of the
country ; and, as Co_ pperheads„ .
they tr ill
sting the abolition party of the present
day, to death, and,, at the fitting opportu
nity, send_ Abraham 'Lincoln . adrift, and
plaCe the helm of State in the hands ofan
experienced DemOcratic• 'pilot._ When
that day comes, as come it will in the roll
of time; we shall again have peace and un
ity in the land,sand the star-spangled ban- I
ner of the Republic shall wave in triumph'
from the.Adantic tOthePacifie,-and from
,the Aroostookto the Rio-Grande.. God
speed the day when we shall be one. peo
ple, with. one GoVernment, `one Constitu
tion, one destiny, _ • •
It would seem to, be a part - of the re-,
cognized policy Of, - the present National
Administration and its supporters to Con
trol by physical or military force -the sen
timents of the people. _This is- precisely.
.and its- minions haVe 4t
tempted in all ageS of the world. Obedi ;
encoto'the Constitution, and to the laws
enacted in conformity with the teachings
of-that sacred instrument, is what every
administrittion has a right to expect and
'require from every citizen ; hut. conformi- . '
ty 'in opinion no government but an un
mitigated despotism ever has, or ever will
attempt to enforce. *lt was this attempt
Which. Lord Moatague„ a Peer of 'Eng
land, denounced as for back in history as
in the reign of -Queen Elizabeth. A stat
ute was proposed 6 to force the subjects
of the realm-to receive and believe the re
ligion of,the Protestants on pain of death.'
This,'_ said he, is a thing most unjust,
for that it is repugnant to the rational lib-.
erty of men's understanding—for under
standing may be persuaded not enforced'
'Freedom of- opinion is a right guarantied
to every man by God himself, and is, inal
ienable. It is, recognized by the Consti
tution'or the United States , and in Our
.and is embraced in
the same clause which guaranties freedom
of specch•and of, the press—rights inesti- '
mable to the people and formidable to.
tyrants only.' • The attempt to violate
these rights may; for a brief - periodef
Lillie, meet with apparent .success; but,
.unless- all history is'a lie, - a people who
owe- their nationality .-to,a.. revolution
fought in - - vindication of e natural, and

I stn no .tipolog,iSt, for the unnatural re
bellion-which now exists in our country,
much iess do I feel inelihed.to justify the
secession of the Southern,Sthtes. On the
contrary, my conviction all; along haS been
that they committed a grievous . wrong . ,
not only to .the: whole Country and to
themselves, - but also •to the Democratic
party of the North, who had alivays stood,

We 4iiote- o the following -little - incident
from the Journal of 'commerce ,
. A sick soldier, going 2 up' in the Yew
Aar an Vars the other day, was addressed
bt a stranger 'who'sat behind him, and in
the course Of conversation the latter spoke
of General M'Clellan-in tering , somewhat
the same as_ane.daily used .by some news
papers. The - sip - Mier turned arertind in bin
seat and-'iat,first very gently reprovedthe
stranger.'The latter repeated his, remarks,
and insolently. expressed -his .surprise that
llnimi:: . Soldier- should defend General
.The Soldier took a: roll 'of
-money, fr o m his pocket; and
,said, so that
the car heard him, 'DI give yon that
sir,, if you'll go into, the . next._ Car_and - . say
out loud What youbave said-to me.-
'What do you-. mean by thatr asked .the
other. 'I, mean that rin too sick to touch ,

"-before yOu know where you are, and

that the car. full of-travelers was in entire
