DANGER OF TUE PRESENT AND ROPE FOR
Hon. George H. Pendleton, by invita
tion of tho . Democratic Club of Urbana,
Ohio, made an address in that city on
Thursday evening last. In the course of
his remarks he said :.
In the spring of 1862, almost before the
active operations of the war had com
menced, a - gentleman addressing a New
England audienee on its causes, purposes
and,progress, said : •
"j warn you that none of you will ev
er again see the Former Republic under
which you were born.”
He is an accomplished speaker, an elo
quent advocate, a learned scholar, the
type of a Class, the pioneer of a school.
Wealth arid leisure had enabled him for
many years to consult his tat iu the
mode and 'purposes of his life; and as he
himself boasted in a lecture in the City of
Washington, in the presence of Mr. Lin
coln and members of his Cabinet, be had
devoted N. for nineteen years to the dis
ruption of`• the 'American Union and the
overthrow of the Constitution whieb form
" I warn you that none of you will ev
er again see the Farmer Republic under
which you were born."
While Ilk. Seward thus, on .behalf of
the government, portrayed the issues of
the war, this prophet—
" Prophet, said it, thing of evil;
Prophet still, if bird or devil,"
proclaimed that the revolution was pro
gressing--; that its result was certain—
and warned his bearers to be ready to see
that "old . things bad passed away, and
all things bad become new."
I do 110 t: question his motives, nor im
peach his purposes, nor inquire into the
sources of his information. Did he speak
truly ? This is the question to night.
Farmer Republic—Not free republic,
not powerful republic, not warlike repub
lic; not grUwing republic, not magnificent
republic, not liberty loving repnblic—but
Farmer Republic. It is an expressive
name. Farmer, the synonym of honesty,
dence; the ideal of labor without exhaus
tion, of luury without effeminacy, of
Trovidetice without corroding care, of ac
tivity without hurry, of leisure without
idleness, of freedom without license, of
purity without bigotry, of independence
without intolerance, of that spirit at once
hopeful'anil humble, which grows out of
the ever recurring realization, at all times
and in all Vicissitudes, of the fulfillment of
the pronitse that " while the earth re
maineth seed time and harvest, and sum
mer and winter, and cold and heat, and
day and night, shall not cease.",
I will not analyze closely our system of
government; it, endured from 1789 till
1860. Shall I recount its history ? Shall
I remind you that at first it met with se
rious opposition, but that wisely admin
istered, it proved its beneficence and fix
ed itself firmly in the hearts of the people
—that it waged wars of conquest and
wars of defense—that. it felt the evils of
domestic slissension—that it encountered
the perils of neutrality, and all the diffi
culties of a struggle for commercial su
premacy, and all the vicissitudes of na
tional life,' and that this Constitution of
government was sufficient for all these
things ? Shall I tell you the story which
hangs on my lips—that obeying lawful
authority, observing the precepts of pa
ternal affection"; exercising moderation
and kindness, and, above all, revering the
patriotitni and the virtues of the fathers,
and seeking to imitate them, these States
and this people wooed the genius of wis
dom, and found, indeed, " its ways are
ways of pleasantness, and all its paths
are peace;" that liberty was in mansion
and in cottage, in city and in country,
that prosperity crowned the husband
man and the artisan, and the merchant;
that wealth and power, and science, and
art, and learning and religion, and the
kindly cha'Oties of a robust and manly
pbilantbro*py, did constant homage in
their rapid development to the benefi•
cence of the Farmer Republic ?
And hai itpassed away ?
Why sbouid not this system, so full of
blessings, have satisfied the aspirations of
our people;? Why the perpetual long
ing of the human mind to leave .the well
knoWn track, and to encounter the perils
of innovatipn and- experiment ?
During ,be closing years of this period,
great dissatisfaction With our political
system mahifested ittielf. It was popular
to propose radical changes in the govern
ment established by the fathers. The
declaration- was made that the Union of
slaver holding and. non slave holding
States could not endure, although such a
Union had ;been so brilliantly successful
for three quarters of a century. Light.
Inid'suddenly broke in upon. the mind.
The wisdo4i of the past bad become dark
ness before surpassing offal gen cesh ed
npoWthe present. 4 -mystical "higher
law"bad - leen discovered—by its-uncer

MONTROSE, PA. ? TUESDAY, MAY 21, 1867.
in so far was the Constitution to be spurn
ed and disregarded.
Discontent finally took form and action
in secession and coercion. These were
but the manifestations of an underlying
spirit. On the one side and on the other
it was asserted that the struggle was for
territorial limits only. Neither was en
tirely. correct, for both were actuated by
the revolutionary spirit,'and the firing of
the first gun on Fort Sumter was as the
voice of a seer, declaring that a revolu
tion had been accomplished.
The old political system passed away in
'lB6l,land another was adopted. Its little
finger is heavier than the whole body of
that which it superseded. No longer do
we ask have we a government ? Its Ar
gus eyes seek every where the accumula
tions of labor and capital, and its .Briare
an arms are ever grasping all those eyes
can see. Its vast military and navaLes
tablishments have risen with portentious
mien, and overshadow the blvd adminis
trations in nearly one half the country.
Beneath the blows of their iron sway, pop
ular government, resting on the consent
of the people, has there completely fallen.
Its vital energy is apparent wherever we
see strife and contention, and violent pas
sions and, antagonisms of race,
tions and States. Its genius and humanity
are conspicuous wherever healing wounds
are made to gape afresh, and to receive a
new infusion of gall and bitterness. There
is no doubt that we have a .government
strong one—strong in the number of
men whom it. can conscript; strong in the
treasure it can raise by taxation; strong
in its power to invade the rights of the
States and the liberties of the citizens;
strong in its capacity to override the con
stitution; strong as Rome was strong,
both east and west, tinder the Emperors;
strong as France was strong under the
Reign of Terror and the guillotine; but
weak as they were weak when the Goths
and Vandals avenged on the seven hilled
city the wrongs of Germans, or when the
blood of the murdered Denton choked
the despairing Robespierre.
The_ equality of the States was the ba
sis of the Farmer Republic. Is it main
tained ? The answer comes to us from
the reconstruction bill, which puts ten
States under martial law,,and subjects
them to the will of a military officer.
The strict confinement of the Federal
government to international and inter
State affairs was an element of the Far
mer Republic. Is it enforced ? The an
swer comes to us from the civil rights
bill, which intrudes federal authority up
on the States and utterly overrides the
most sacred constitutional guarantees.
The maintenance of the co ordinate
branches of the government, the distribu
tion of power, the separation of constitu
encies from which it flows, were indispen
sable features of the Farmer Republic.
Their doom was written in the tenure of
office bill, which deprives the President of
the power of removing even members of
his Cabinet, and thils subjects the Execu
tive to the control of the Legislature.
Their doom was written in the attack on
the Supreme Court, because of its decis
ion in relation to military commissions.
All power now centers in a single hand,
and is conferred by a consolidated majori
Reverence. for the Constitution marked
the era of the Farmer Republic, and
warmed the hearts of all its children.
Now, who so poor as to entertain this
sentiment ? It was rolled upend packed
away by Mr. Lincoln, and kept thus dis
honored, it has fallen into contempt, and
to urge its authority serves only to pro
voke a sneer, or to call out a joke. It
forms no barrier to the projects of party
rage party desire. Its provisions are
entifely disregarded, or immediately al-'
tered to justify the enactment proposed,
or to command the attainment of the end.
The highest respect shownito his remains
is the proposition to amend them. The
strife, of parties, which was once under
the Constitution, is now over and above
Powers granted to the Federal govern
ment ! Is it not true that every power
which is desired to be exercised, is found
to be granted, and that more would 'be
found if necessary. Once we believed a
fundamental law, guiding legislation and
containing the muniments of personal lib
erty—so sacred that under no circumstan
ces could it be infringed, or even amen
ded, except in the methodyrescribed—to
be essential to free government. Now
we have willingly dispensed with it, and
committed unlimited power to a tempo
rary majority, and this we call flippantly,
the will of the nation.
Tel me, does one single feature of the
Fanner Republic remain '? We had a
plairk:and simple and, economical, govern
mentr We had light taxes; we have
enormous burtlietis. We had gold AO
silver as legal tender; we have a deinica
ted'iOvernment paper currency. We bad
trial by Jury and personal liberty; we

had 'a government whose . exactions

concord, and due respect for State's'
people and opinions'and habits; we have
a bitter sectional strife, subjugated peo
ple, overthrown States, and an animosity
of party warfare ,;never before known.
We had freedom of thought; we have an
intolerance which strikes down indepen;
dence of opinion_ and prescribes political
differences as a crime, and establishes a
searching scrutiny into- the hearts and
consciences of the community. We heard I
in our bitterest struggles the voice of
reason; now that voice is drowned in the
clangor of the trumpet which marshals
prejudice, and rage and hate to intensify
the party srife. We had a peaceful con
federation.) Now,•while national unity is
inculcated as the highest duty, the per
petuation of geographical divisions and
national hatred is rewarded with the high
est praise. Congress, _which was the
theatre of intellectual debate, is now the
registry of the decrees of a party caucus,
and hesitation to record thern is treagon
to the reigning power, and involves loss
of personal preferment, even of political
life. We have broken down the barriers
which hemmed in that vast array of pow
ers—closely akin to mere brute force—
which we believed - the government, and
even society, could not, iu any event, just
ly exercise, and.: have given them as the
plaything of every passion. We had a
republic; we have an empire.
Slavery has perished; all history tells us
that it cannot be re established in this
ages in this country. It is our bounden
duty to recognize this great social change;
to ameliorate whatever evils may be inci
dent to it, and so far as possible, to pre
pare the freedmen for the discharge of
the new duties which are being devolved
upon them. But, gentlemen, if this revo
lution is to go on, and the present system
of government is to be continued, then
has our liberty perished with it; and we
have realized the prediction of a profound
thinker and a brilliant writer, who, twen
ty years ago, predicted. that it would be
written over the grave of our political in
stitutions : " Here lies a people who, in
order to give 'freedom to three millions of
Africans, destroyed'their own liberty."
Mr. Webster, years age, had occasion
to discuss the same subject, and with that
pomp and splendor of diction which mark
ed all his political addresses, he said :
"Other misfortunes may be borne, or
their effects overcome. If war should
sweep our commerce from the ocean, an
other generation may renew it ;elf it ex
haust our treasury future industry may
replenish it ; if it desolate and lay waste
our fields, still, under a new cultivation,
they will grow green again, and ripen to
"It were but a trifle, even, if the walls of
yonder Capitol were to crumble, if its lof
ty pillars should fall, and its gorgeous de
corations be covered by the dust of the
valley. But who shall reconstruct the
fabric of demolished government? Who
shall rear again the well-proportioned col
umns of constitutional liberty ? Who
shall frame together the skillful architec
ture which unites National Sovereignty
with State Rights, individual security
with public prosperity ? Now, if these
columns shall fall, they shall be reared
not again. Like the Coliseum and the
Parthenon they will be destined to a mel
ancholy, mournful immortality. Bitterer
tears, however, will flow over them than
were ever shed on the monuments of Ro
man or Grecian Art ! for they will be the
remnants of a more glorious edifice than
Greece or Rome ever saw—the edifice of
Constitutional American Liberty."
Gentlemen, I feel the force of these
words. I know that others feel them
more deeply, perhaps, than I. I see
among many good men a tendency to de
spair. I see among my own friends, those
who agree with the generally ,on public
affairs, a disposition to give np all for lost.
They have lost hope, they have lost cour
age—their despondency counsels inaction.
Thenewepapers, the public spaeches, but
above all, the private conversations, indi
cate this feeling.
Gentlemen, I de not sympathize with
it. I have high hopes'for the future. I
see the dangers that are before us. I see
a long and weary way. I see b, long and
exhausting struggle, in which Success will
vary frovbe one side to the other. I do
not conceal froin myself that it may be a
struggle of the sword. Many'of us may
go docvn with the harness on in the midst
of the fight, but hope fills my heart, and
the magnitude of the prize 'nerves my
The reaction snrely come. All his
tory, all' philosophy declare it. It has
come to all other nations—it will come to
us. It has come, sometimes, clothed in
the .white robes of peace, sometimes with
its garments dyed in blood.
In every-country there has been a par
ty of power,, anif a party against it. In
every country there have been men who
loved liberty as they loVed virtue, and
hone? and truth ; men who would avenge
its wrongs, even as they would protect
the virtue of the :wife of their bosom, or
the honor of the 'mother who here them.
Liberty inspires the. sonl.' Its sacred
fires forever burn 'amid its spindles and
defenders. When peaceful Means are ex

Our people desire to be wise.and virtu
ous. Oar country is young and riel, and
strong. Experience will not teach its
painful' essons in vain. The splendid re
collecti_ons of the past have not entirely
passed away. Its vestiges are not all lid
ried in the ruin of the present. The hopes
of the future are bright in the reflection
of its expiring- glories. They will accele
rate the counter revolution. Let us dili
gently prepare the way. It is wisdomlo
accept accomplished facts. It is folly to
abandon correct principles in-the moment
of their adversity, , Principled are eternal
—institutions of government are' but in
strumentalities—facts vary as the days
succeed,each other, and seem to change
at the bidding of the fickle moon.
1. Let us hold fast to principles, let us
modify institutions, let us recognize the
changing phases of facts. It is the office
,men to adopt jest principles of
government by the aid of fit institutions
to every condition of affairs. Liberty is
the great good. Confederation is to be
sought only because it has aided to main
tain it. Centralization is, to be avoided
Drily because it has always destroyed it.
But at last, liberty is the life, the soul,
and government is the form, the body
through which-it is developed.
Let us, gentlemen, look at the past on
ly that we may select what is good and
avoid what is evil, that we may from its
experience catch the inspiration of a wise
progress, that we may so school our
hearts to the lessons of moderation and
truth that patriotism and wisdom may
guide the courses of the inevitable reac
tion, and lead us back from the perils of
centralized imperialism, to the safety of a
Confederation, founded, supported and re
strained by the checks and balances of a
Thus if we can not restore the Farmer
Republic, we can at least regain the bles
sings of liberty regulated by law, and of
law enacted and maintained by the spirit
of virtuous liberty.
A Queer Courtship.
The period of courtship is not always a
time of romance as may be supposed. If
the wooer is a romantic sort of a chap and
the wooed a sentimental damsel, in such
a case there are many hours of ecstacy
and, bliss enjoyed by two loving hearts.
tut it takes all kinds of people to make
up the world ; and it is not to be supposed
that every one who indulges in the bliss of
courting is disposed to look upon 'love
making as a period of sentimental enjoy
ment. No, not much. An illustration of
this fact occurred which we cannot forbear
relating. In a small country town in Hart
ford county a widower who had acted the
part of brute and tryant to his wife, went
shortly after the demise of his spouse to
pay his respects to a buxom widow, who,
like her suitor, had not the best reputa
tion for suavity of manners and meekness
of temper. The following colloquy en
" Well madam, I am come to see you."
" Weil, you may just clear out again,
for I'll have nothing to do with you. You
needn't think to get me. You abused and
whipped your first wife, and I know what
kind of a fellow yonare. You can bet high
"'Yes, I did, and if I had you, Pd make
you toe the mark. I'd give you a d—d
