A. J. GEtRITSON, Pt_bASllog4
Clymer and Cleary---The Contra.g.
There are two candidates before the
people for the office of ; Governor of
Pennsylvania.. One is the nominee otthe
Democrat* party—the other is the choice
of the Radical disunion organization. The
character of each is so marked and dis
tinctive, and the position of each is so
clearly defined, that no possible mistake
ran by made,by the voters of Pennsylva
nia in casting, their ballots in October
next, .Llitt us glance at each in turn—
liiesier Clinker, and John W. Geary—and
see which of the two deserves most the
suppok of the intelligent and patriotic
freemen of this Commonwealth.
Hiester Clymer, the Democrat, is a
gentleman of the highest and most un
blemished character. No stain rests up
on his private lifeioone clouds his public
or official career. His personal standing
and political integrity are such as to si
lence even the faintest croakings of parti
san malice. His ability as a statesman,
his eloquence as an orator, and his devo..
tion to the true interests of the masses,
have "won for him golden opinions from
all sorts of people." Thoroughly educa
ted, gifted with talents of the highest or
der, Having a mind stored with infor
mation upon all questions of importance
to the State, he is just the man to be
placed at this time at the head of the Old
Keystone, to carefully guard the true and
solid interests of her Wheat and tax rid
den people. Ever since he entered polit
ical life, he has been distinguished for his
nuf.iliering Democracy and his unswer
ving del , ~ . 1% to principle. No jobber, I
uo ttie,,,fti, no political.sharper, he stands
belle c hie people of his native State to
day a perfect type of• a true Pthatisylva:
nia Democrat, and the bold, honest and
fearless advocate of Union, Restoration,
and Constitutional Liberty.
John W. Geary, the radical disunion
is equally well known in Pennsylva
nia. Fur many years past he has been be
fore the public eye, and, in - many instan
ces, in no very enviable . position. He is
the candidate of John W. Forney, and
the fielitical fortunes - of the two have been
linked together—the former aspiring to
the and ei:eat - print chair, and the latter to
a the Senate of the United States.,
Geary was in the Mexican war,
but won'
nolanrets - in that 'Contest: On the return
of the Pennsylvania soldiers frotu that, dis
tant battlefield, his own companions in
arms unhesitatingly denounced him, and
gave him an ugly record. Drifting into
California as an aimless 'adventurer, he
rotarned after a season to Pennsylvania,
a 1 , 1 remained comparatively quiet until
I , le breaking out of the late civil war.
ills conduct in that straggle is not at all
..alculated to bring him enduring fame,
his principal.aohievements being-won and
recorded by newspaper correspondents
and busy camp followers, who sent home
to the journals they represented glowing
accounts of the great man's prowess that
existed only in tile graphic imagination
of the writers. Perhaps the most signal
exploit hes performed during the entire
war was the gallant capture, from the reb
el hordes, of an unresisting cannon at
ILirper's Ferry, which he intended to pre
sent to the City of Philadelphia with due
and appropriate honors: Unfortunately,
however, the ceremony'did not come off,
as it was discovered that, having been bu
ried.% that Aside soil for over forty
. pot, be removed, except
through the agency of Butler's Powder
Boat, or the . employment of as large a
force as that used on the Dutch Gap Ca
nal. Of his present political opinions he
makes tio concealment—when he knows
exactly. the company he is in. On no
point is ho more fixed and determined
(when he is with the Radicals) than in his
eternal and nndying-bostility. to 4 my pol
icy" of the President; and in the presence
of Stivens,.Helley, and the gentle Anna
Dickinson, he is equally frank and une
quivocal in his advocacy of negro suffrage
and negro equality in all its varied forms
rand phases; short time before his nom
ination by the 'Oadical disunion Conven
tion he addressed tm'affectionite letter to
his old friend Major Samuel -Maguire ' of
this eity,.in which he einpbaticallY said
he was a ". lifelong Deemerati" and seem
ed to iesent, with glowing scorn the dis
graceful imputation that he was or ever
could be anything else., ~T he Democratic
Convention, however, for 'Some reason or
other, passed over his wondrous claims in
silence, and - then the Ramps promptly
took him ,as their " constable of 'the
watcht;!q/e,being considered the most "fit

The Irish in America have been the
special objects of Radical denunciatihn,
because of their.firm.adherence to Demo
cratic 14gtwithatlinding the
alacrity with which they .rnshed to the
'field at the call cf the overnmentof their.
adopted. country , and the ding .bra•
very with which they fonght:and fell un
der the flag of the Union, they have, as a
class, been stigmatized ae " sympathizers
with treason" by the Radical party. But
a change has come =over the .spirit of the
Radicals. The action. Of our. *overnment.,
in the. matter of the Fenian invasion of
Canada'hii, afforded them ,an opportuni
ty, afithey suppose, to entrap the Irish ;
into their support. "President" Roberts

brave and honest men into Canada to be•
killed or captured, posted off tn-Wash

wrath against the Government, to strike
a bargain with Sumner and Stevens.
That the bargain , was made is evident
from the altered tone of such hypocritical
and unprincipled sheets as the Philadel
'Tads Press. " Blarney" bas taken the

is only by the

can merit and receive the support of the

COtton Frauds.
Great efforts have been made by the
Radical interest to hush up the allega
tions against Government agents who
have been employed in the South since
the war, and even during"it, wherever the
United States military power prevailed.
These agents, civil and military, have
plundered the' Government, and robbed
the planters of tintold millions.
The facts have been reported ,in,
and yet Congress has been careful to
overlook - Or to sniiin'ess them. Where is
ihdignation against such wretches
and 'robbers? They keep, all their yea
geance' for the 'N ational Union men who
resist their mid policy. When will they
bring to justice these their own partisans,
some of whoni have obtained, by pecula
tion diteet, 'fratid; hundreds of thous
ands of dollars?' Is this money to, be re
covered for the Wilted States Treasury,
orsi it t o be employed in the coming glee,-
titin to perpetuate the Radical power ?
We copythe following from theSpriog
field Republican :
.l7....m.iftrr,—Several attempts have been
made in Congress to secure a fall investi
gatiort,cf .the immense frauds upon the
Government, committed by its agents in
the South, during and since the war ; but
for some reason Congress is not disposed
to overhaul this matter, although the Gov
ernment has , lost, bythese gigantic frauds
and stealing% from five hundred to a
thousand million dollars.
"But they
,cannot be wholly covered'
up. In Alabama, Jodge Busteed has suc
ceeded in getting together a grand jury
difiposed to'•rnake , a searching .investiga
tion of the .robbery ia that section ; and,
indeed, the. people generally will 'be in
dined, to aid in the,enforcementofjustice,
as they have been robbed, in the aggre
gate, to a largenasseut than the Govern
ment. "".
"The grand jury for the United States
District Court of Southern Alabama made
a presentment on 'the subject a few weeks
since that 'should attract general atten
tion.' - They state that there were, 150,
000 bales of cotton belonging , to the Con
federate Government f ie Alabaine at the
cloki of the war, which the treasury
agents Of the Velted States were Ordered
to 'collect for the benefit of the Govern.

It These are startling, statements. It is
.not likely they would be made if there was
nn foundation for , them. The agents
I of the iswiudiere at Washington-who have
operated in the South may possibly get
their deserts there throngh,the, United
States courts, unless they escape., with'
their ill-gotten booty. ~ But if the princi

"These gigantic robberies l and frauds
by agents of the Government ip.theSoutb
—and 'they are but specimens of many of
the same sort—show us what we may ex
pect if the South is kept under territorial
or military rule. , .
"The government will be robbed • the
people will be robbed and oppressed; in
&miry wilt be discouraged,; there will be
no inducements , to loyalty, and things
will continually Wax worse and , worse.—.
The thieves who are so , lucky as to get
employment under the General Govern
ment at the South, and to make their pile,
wilt of course go , for perpetual disunion ;
and this class has, had no little ,influ
ence in pr'omoting the ill feeling, at. the
South, and the misconce . ption at the
North, by whiclCrestoration is delayed.
We must not offer a, premium on dishon

Instating tho-liish,
The men who hounded on mobs.years
ago to burn Catholic churches; who ad
vocated depriving Irishmen of their , votes
'until' they sliould have resided the
cOuntry twenty-one years ; who jollied
the dark lantern know-nothings in 1854
and 1855 ; who have since tried again to
deprive Irishmen, of their votes, while
they are doing all in their power to give
votes to negro* men whose thief ex
ploit in life has been the advocacy of
measures for the degradation of white
men of foreign birth, and the elevation in
social and political life of the African ;
these men are to-day willing to return to
all the votnit they have spewed forth for
a quarter of a century against the Irish,
and to eat. it, just because Johnson, a
President of their own election, thought
proper to issue a proclamation against the
Fenian movements, under the hope that
Irishmen are such simpletons as to be
blandished into the support of the aboli
tion ticket 'on that account.
All the insults and denunciations that
judge advocates and town counselors
have showered upon the heads of Irish
men are as nothing to be compared to the
insult of putting forth a mere first idea
that any'trite Irishinan could by any pos
sibility think of voting a republican abo
lition. ticket. Anything but that. That
cap would be too bitter. They can stand
abuse, outrage, insult, denunciation, any
thing, but blandishments from abolition
know'nothings to get their votes is a lit-
Ale tougher than anything else.
Mlitary History.
The Disunion press seem 'very' indig
nant that Democratic journals should re
fer to exploits of Gen. Geary during the
war. They strive desperately to bolster
him up, and resort to all kinds of false
hood and garbled accounts to make it ap
pear that he was a soldier of renown: His
prowess in capturing the spittoon" at
Harper's Ferry is not- disputed, and that
achievement was perhaps the most brill
iant in his military career ! Hue . the gal
lant General's - friends need not foanr at
" copperheads for- throwing out such" in
sinuations," as they call them, in rogard
to-thev.onduct as a soldier,ef Forney's
candidate. Geary'a record as a military
tick; will soon be published. It is in
'course of •PrePartition by soldiers who
yerved-during the war, who know Getity,
and who-will present/ facts do regard , to
him in such authentic, form that the Dis
unionists ,will haye to acknowledge -them.
An officer in Geary's regimens told us a
few days ago that he could' not vote for
him, arid that we would not credit him
were he to tell, as the number of those who
have l,een under his command who would
do likewise. None are better able to ap
preciate Geary than his own men, and
when they furnish the public with his rec
ord it will be a bitter pill for his friends
to swalliiw. We have not found Oppor
tunity, to refer to the history of the war
and follow the General through its pages,
but we accidentally stumbled over one in
stance of his gallantry, a few days since.
In glancing over Swinton's " Army' of the
Potomac," we noticed the name of Geary,
and intentlypernsed a page or so, think
ing to fiad,some refutation of the "insinu
ation" of his masterly capacity on a re
treat. Swinton, page 353, says :
" A new line .was then formed by
Doubleday's and Robinson's divisions of
the First corps, and by troops of the
twelfth Corps brought up by General
And in a foot note, adds ;
"It had been intended that Geary's di
vision (with the exception of Green's bri
gade) illiquid also reinforce the left ; but
his - aiviston missed its way."
According to this authority none of the
.glyiryof Gettyiburg belongs to the hero
of the "spittoon," but had it eventuated
Adversely to our arms, he. would have
been master o the situation on a retreat.
