Mr. KiIT0R :-The following Address
Was delivereJ the other evening in a
Democratic Club Room EAST END.
Felhtc Detucrat$ .'We are in a bad
fix, and we 'must try to work ourselves
out of it as best We cau. ' Four years ago
last fall we cone all in our power to de
feat Abrahim Lincoln.' It Was no go 1
He was elected in spite of our teeth.
The South rebelled ! We thought it 'a
good opportcnity to break down that de
testable pirty, called the Republicans.
We done all we could to arouse' sympa
thy from our "Southern brethren.'' We
discouraged enlistments and sont our men
to Canada.' It was all "no go." An army
was raised, the Democrats in the South
were encimpased round about by Yan
kee Solders. The time arrived for anoth
er Presklcntial election, and a move was
made ti extend the right of suffrage to
the wdiers. We always said tre had
more soldiers in the army than the Re
publicans, yet", as a matter of necessity
we opposed the soldiers' vote. Notwith
standing our opposition it carried. They
got their votes. We then dared not say
much against it. We yielded as au
honest man should do.. We commenced
begging for their votes for Gen. McClcl-
lan, hut all in vaiu. hen the returns
came in, it cppearel as if though the
name of McClellan had nevef been known
in the army. Lincoln was re-elected, and
with hiai Ardy Johnton, notwithststid-
iug the declaration in the Chicago Plat
form that the ''experiment of th sword
to restore the Union was a failure."
Although we represented Mr. Johnson aa
a "broke-down politician," the "Tennes
see outlaw," a "ruffian," and every other
bad name imaginable, and our party refus
ed to let him speak in the Halls of the
Stat House at Harrisburg because he
was an abolition emmissary,"yet we could
not gain the day. We ako told the peo
ple that ere long the niggers woultLswarui
up North, and take all the work from the
poor white men. Now these scamps won't
come after all. Now Lincoln is dead and
Andy Johnson is President, and we have
tried another game. Since everybody
has a liking to him and we have lost so
much by abusing Lincoln we thought we
would own him as a Democrat, and
through him build up our party, but that
appears to fail again, although we have
been doing all in our power to make peo
ple believe he belonged to our party; they
tell us they remembered too well how we
abused him only a few short months ago.
And when . we tell hint he belongs to
our party, the old cuss always gives us to
understand that we do not bolong to hit,
that he don't want to sseociate with us.
He did lately manifest in unmistakable
signs that he .followed in the very foot
steps of Mr. Lincoln, by refusing to allow
the Writ of Habeat Curput to operate in
the case of. Mrs. SurratL He is also
now telling the Southerners that they can
not be recognized as States in the Union,
uulcss they abandon Slavery, which ap
pears to have been the bone of contention
for so long a time. ,' ' " ". ' ' " " "'
Now Gentlemen, what'a to be done ?
The party must be built up again, and we
must exorcise all our ingenuity to get it
accomplished.. We aro in a bad fix, in.
deed. . We are Jacking in three essential
points vis: 1.) We are very scarce in
material. 2.) Wo have hardly an Archi
tect able to devise a plan for the struc
ture, and 8,) we have no Foundation.
. I would now suggest that we try our
skill at it, and if we can't succeed; we
will submit the matter to our High Priest
Vallandigbam, and if it's no go then, then
I knew better way than to abandon the job
as one of the ;'Impo9sibi!ities" I have
read of once, and Jet the Republicans
; In fact, Mr. President, our jarty re
minds me of a man who heard, goaie
years ago, that the old Lewistown Bank
had broken, and came running home to
gco whetkor he had any notes on that lank,
and then felt greatly relieved when he
found he had none on that bank nor on
any orter bank. So we have been growl
ing about the abolitionists breaking the
Constitution and haviug such bad priuoi-
ples until lo and behold whoa we come to
look at on rsel res we find that we have
not a sioglts nrinrle.left.
I am thaukful for. put itt'trtfro-ani

WHOLE NUMBER, 9J.;:
COL- TITOS AS A-SCOTT AND GET. POPE,
-'.- ' .'.. " ' '",
As many of our readers kaow Colonel
Scott personally; they Will keenly . appre
ciate the point of the following incideat
of the war in the Southwest' Coi Scott'
spent the spring and part cf the summer
of 1962 along the Mississippi, as Assis
tant Secretary of War, giving his person
al attention to the campaign for the open
ing of the river. , Ever vigilant aud no
less unobtrusive, he had oucatiot) to give
Gen. Pope a very quiet but most impress
ive lesson on good manners, and we doubt
not that one was quite enough for the
pompous commander. Wc quote from
the New York Tribute:
I heard while at Pillow, au anecdote of
Gen. Pope an officer of ability, but
sometimes a very unpleasant man, with a .
pompous aud hectoring uiaaocr which
will bear repetition. While at his head
quarters, the General was approached by -a
rather small man, plain-looking, and en- '
tircly uuassuming, in citizen's attire, with
the question : -
"Are you Gen. Pope, sir?" .'i
"That is my name," was the answer in
rather a repelling tone. " :
"I would like to see you, then, on a '
matter of business."
"Call on my adjutant, sir. He will '
arrange any business you may have."
"But I wish to hare a personal oonvcr
sition with you."' ; '
"See my Adjutant," in an anthoratire
"Did I not tell you to see my Adju--tant?
Trouble me no more, sir," and
Pope Was walking away.
"My name is Scott, General," quietly
i remarked the Email, plain man. ,
"Confound you! What do I care,"
thundered Pope in a rising passion, "if
your name is Scott, or Jones, or Jenkinp,
or Snook, for the matter of that ' See
my Adjutant, I tell you, fellow t Leave
my presence "'
"I am,", continued the quiet man, io
his quiet way, "the Assistant Secretary,
of War, and '
What a revolution those simple word
made in the General's appearance and
His angry, haughty, domineering air
was dispelled in a moment, and a flush
of comfusion passed over his altered ie.ee.
"1. beg your pardon, Mr Scott, I hal
no idea whom 1 was addressing. Pray
be seated ; I shall be happy to grant you
an interview at any time.
Possibly a very close" observer might
have seen a faint half-contemptuous smile
on the Secretary's lip though he said no
thing, but began to unfold hi business
After that unique interview, Potio
and the Assistant Secretary were frequent
jy together, and I vcuture U ay the--
lalter had no reason subsequently to Com
plain of the General's rudeness.
Gen. Grant on NgoRoScrtRAUE.--
General Grant, both from his position a
head of the army and from the prestige
he has won, is likely to become as impor
tant to our Government for the remain-'
der of his life as the Dnke of Wellington
was to the British Government in' the lat
ter half of his public career. 1 His views,
therefore, will always be of interest :'', In
this connection; we give" the following
from the Chicago' Tribune :'
"Ucneral Urant m conversation with
his friends, says that .it is " too ' soon ' to
declare that the loyal blacks in the South
khall not be allowed to vote. Aside from
.he abstract right and the legal problem
of what suthority can confer or' withhold
he franchise whether Congress or the
States the question may assume the
shape of a political necessity. The Gov
ernment and people may have to choose
between keeping a standing army lor
109,000 men b an expense of f 100 ,000,-
000 a year to the tax-payers, to support
the white minority in the- South-' against
the white Rebel majority; or of enfran
chising the blacks and thereby enabling'
them to support the whifo loyalist.
General Grant foresees that the suffrsge
question may take thu form." ' ' ' .
