hirrowrng u th resolutions adopt
ed at the Union State Coareniton, held
in the citj of Harrisbarg, Pa , on Thurs
day, August 17, 1862.
Mr. McVeigh, from the Committee on
Resolutions, made the following report ;
The Union Party of Pennsylvania, in
state uouvection assemoiea, ceciare :
1. That as renresentativeaof the loval
people of the Cocimoswealth we rever
ently desire to oner oar gratuuae u: ai
michtv God. whose favor has vodohsafed
i victnrv to the national arms, enabled na
j to eradicate the crime of slavery from our
laid, ad to tcHder treason against the
Republic impossible forevermore and
next to Him, our thanks ars due and are
hereby tendered to our brave soldiers and
sailors, who, by their endtlraccc, sacrifi
ces, and illustrious heroism, have secured
to their country Peace, and to the doffh
trodden everywhere an asyluni of Liber
ty; who have shown that the var for the
the restoration of the Union is not a fail
ure, and whose valor has proven for all
time the fact that this Government of the
People, by the People, is as invincible in
its strength as it is bentueent in its oper
ation ,
2. That reverice the memory of Abra
ham Lincoln, the great martyr of liberty.
we canDOt show greater, honor tc his name
than by a generous support of bis fellow
patriot and successor, Andrew Johnson,
the President of the United States, who
has been called to complete the task which
he left UDhuished. His unbending pa
triotism m the past is a sure, guarantee
that in the momentous future the author
ity of the Government will be upheld,
and the rights and liberties, of all the
citizens of the Republic secured.
3. That the mild and generics method
of reconstruction offered by the Presi
dent to the peop'.e lately in rebellion, in
the judgment of this Convection, has
not been accepted in the spirit of honest
loyalty aid pratitude, but with such evi
dence of defiance and hostility as to impel
us to the conviotiqn that, they cannot safe
ly be entrusted with the political rights
which they forfeited by their treason, un
til tey have proven their acceptance- of
the results cf the war, but incorporating
them in constitutional provisie'ris. ar?d ee
curing to all men within their borders
their inalienable right to life, liberty and
the pursuit of .happiness.
4. That having couquered the rebel
lious States, they should be held itl sub
jection, and the treatment they are to re
ceive and the laws which ars to govern
them, should be referred to the lawmak
ing power of the option to which it legit
imately belongs.
5. That as the late rebellion is wanton
ly precipitated by the property holders of
the South, it is but just that they Should
pay the expnsss ot the war, and Con
gress should declare as forfeited and vest
ed in the Government the property of all
rebels whose estates exceed the sum of
? 10,000, and that the proceeds of the
property so confiscated" should be applied
to increase the pensions of those entitled
thereto by the same casualities of the war,
to pay the damages done by ihe Caemy to
loyal citizens, and to reduce the burden
of the national debt.
6. That is the duty of Congrca so to
revise the revenue lavrs.ae to afford. in
creased protection to American industry;
to secure the development of the indus
trial wealth of the people; and to render
labor profitable and remunerative ; to build
up home Markets for our agriculturists ;
to attract capital lo, the mineral fields of
the country, and to provide revenue for
the maintainace of the public, credit; and
this Convention recognizes the chief en
emy to a policy of protection in that
European power which, for four years, has
furnished piratical vessels war to the
rebels, find thus endeavored to drive our
ccrflfflQrqq Irqm the seas.,
7. That any attempt by foreign nations
to establish monarchical government, on
this continent is evidence of a. .design fo
destroy Republican institutions. Regard
for our own safety and for the future se
curity of the Republican demand that no
such attempt should succeed.
8. That it :s the duty of Congress to
secure the full Federal bounty to all hon
orably discharged soldiers, irrespective of
tbodate ot tneir eqlistWetft. ,
9. That tte recognize .ia 'Edwin M.
Stanton the fearless, honest and able , head
of the Department ot ,War, a puhlic ser
vant who has deserved well of bis country.
and has borne himself so clear in his. great
office as to merit the earnest gratitude of
all loyal men ; ana we tender to him and
to his distinguished . cojlcauges in the
Cabinet our thanks for their valuable ser
vices in the cause ot. liberty ani, Jaw.
. 10. That the constant devotion of Gov
ernor Curtia to the best interests, of the'
State and nation, during .the last four
years, and his indefatigable efforts on all
occasions to pay the just debt of gratitude
we owe our national defenders, not merely
by words, but also by decd, entitles hin)
to tho thanks of every loyal eitixen of
Pennsylvania. -.
11. That this Convention, representing
the loyal peopte of Pennsylvania, roooz-
nizes the claims of our citizen soldiers on
asw-rina wroaciitaw o iAwt.
PENN'A. AUGUST 83, 1865.
our coaifence and gratitude, and that
in nomination for offioes especial, regard
iImUUmU wUioH o$ thorn who
have faithfully served their country in, the
army or the navy in the suppression of
tne rebellion. ....,,...
12. That the leaders of the Democratic
party stand, arraigned before the people of
Pennsylvania for constantly obstructing
the efforts of tho constituted authorities
to maintain the life o t'e Republic.
This they did,.
By inflaming passions .cf 'their ig
norant followers against the legally elect
ed officers of the Federal Government,
and refraining from all reproach against
treason or armed traitCT3. . . ,.
- 1 procuring a decision fom the
Democratic judges of our suprerhe court,
denying the right ot the Government to
the .services of their imperilled country.
By discouraging riieri froii- .volunteer
ing into the armies of the Union ; thus
rendering, it necessary to succumb to treas
on, or to pay large bounties, and so burd-
onincr evprv ward, tnwnshin and borough
in the State with debt to 611 the ranks of
our armies,
By opposing the enlistment of negroes
for our defence, although one whito taan
less was required for every black one who
could be enlisted, and this at the moment
when the battle of Gettysburg was rag
ing on the soil of Pennsylvania, and the
result of that decisive battle was uncer
tain. By denying to our soldiers the right to
vote while fighting for tho flag of v, our
fathers, on the plea that such right t?ere
not allowed by our constitution, and by
opposing in drhendment which removed
their objections, and relieved our brave
soldiers from this disability.
By exaggerating the public indebted
ness, denying the public credit, and teach
ing that the financial resources of the
north were unequal to the suppression of
the rebellion.
By a cKameful opposition to measures
for extendioir relief to the families of
Union soldiers, and by a malignant,efTort
by these means to secure the sujcoss
of the rebels in the field, or such a pro
traction of the war as would exhaust the
nation in, its effort to subdue their friends.
Py now heaping abuse upon the Gov
ernment for punishing assnsSihs and theij;
accomplices; by demanding the releas?
of leading traitors, by, frowning down all
atterSps to bring -to punishment the fiends
who starved our soldiers, and by assuring
rebcb that neither in perfioa or property
shall they be punished for their crimes.
And if anything were wanting to com
nlete their iufainv. w hare it in tht-ir
determined opposition to free labor, and
to a tariff which, while it would make la
bor profitable by protecting the working
men of Pennsylvania from British com-
petiti'.n, wotild largely ncreae the reven
ue essential to the maintenance of the
public faiih and credit.
The .report: of the committee having
been read, Mr. . Cessna moved that the
whole be adopted, with the exception of
the resolution marked eleven fl 1,1 and
that separate action be had on the resolu
tion designated as No 11, which was unan
imously agreed to.
The resolution No. 1 1 was then sepa
rately considered.
Mr. Todd offered the fullowtntr amend
ment to the resolution reported by the com
mittee: .
t-t!esolved, That this Convention, rep
resenting the loyal people rjf Pennsylva
nia, recognises the claims of our citizen
soldiers cn our confidence and gratitude
as superior to all others, and that in token
cf the sincerity of this, its declaration,
it will nominate none as candidates for
office who have not proved their loyalty
add patriotism by services in the field
against the enemies of the. Ke'pr&iie.
. Mr. Todd demanded the yeas and nays
on this amendment, and a vote was taen,
with the following result :

The original , resolution reported by
the committee Was then unanimously
agreed to. ...

General Hoffman, Commissary General of
Prisons, is busily engaged in adjusting
the accounts of paroled and released sol
diers, preparatory to their final discharge.
A report is in course of cotkpfetion, giv

ber of deaths from various causes, and
other matters of great moment.. The
public will be astonished at the -number

, Mr. Ambrose Spencer has contributed
another painfully iaferbsting narrative in
relation to the inhuman monsters who tor
tured our soldiers in the prison-pen at
Anderspnyille. We reproduce the ma
terial portion of his statement :
"I have referred to the quantity and
quality of the food given to the prison
ers, and have since been , asked if the
country Was really so destitute of provis
ions as to require it At the post-quartermaster's,
at Americans, nine miles from
Andersdnville, there was turned over to
the United Suites Government nearly
two hundred thousand pounds of bacon
and . an immense arr-otrit of corn and
o'.her produce; a larger quantity was
stored at Albany, forty miles lower down,
and very considerable stores at Oglethorpe
eighteen miles above Andersonville.
These amo-ots were continually increas
ing form tithes and purchases, so that it
will be seen that there was no lack of pro
visions in the country wherewith to furn
ish the prisoners food,
"t have heard much of what is termed
the "dead line;" few, however, know
what is meant by it. After the comple
tion ot the prison and its use, those con
fined there were accustomed to approach
the stockade and look through the open
ings between the posts, or talk to outsid
ers. After the assumption of command
by Maor Wirtz, he caused the prisoners
to be noticed that if they approached
within thirty feet of the stockade, they
would be shot by the guards upon the
outiide. This limit of thirty feet was
unmarked by an line tchatever ; it was
ideal, and to the arbitrary determina
tion of men on guard, a najority of
whom were as incapable of judging ot
distances, or of this distance ot. thirty
feet, as were the poor prisoners who were
doomed if they trHsgress it. The con
sequence was that weekly, yea almost dai
ly, the prisoners were shot icrra by' the
guards, when these thought they had
trenscended, the imaginary line which
separated thirty-seven thousand human
beings from eternity.
"Upon one occasion, a prisoner who
had been Confined there for more than a
year, rendered desperate by hunger, want
and filth, preferring death to a life so
unutterably miserable, alter writing a
last fond letter to his wife in Indiana,
and biddiifj his friends around him fare
well, deliberately advanced towards the
side of the stockade, and calmly received
the well-directed shot of the sentinel that
released his soul from the tortures .which
he could not endure, arid which his dan
hood sank under.
'The southeast corner of the interior
of the stockade was the favorite spot for
this kind of practice by tUe executors of
Wirtz's will ; for at this point the brook
or stream to which I have already refer
red entered the limits of the pricon. Here
the water was less tainted and befouled by
the drainage ot the bill, and attorded a
somewhat more palatable drink ; of course
this point was socIlt in preference to
any other. Bui woe to the unfortunate
wretth who ever reached with his arm be
jcrfd the prescribed bottnds, to dip up a
cup of better water than the reeking cur
rent below him offered 1 A sentinel's bul

less fortunate comrades must drinS, Until
necessity forced its renjpyal. now many
were slain in this manner will never be
known until the records of a book un
scanned by mortal eyes be made up in fig
ures of living light ( ., . ,
"A short distance from the stockade
was the field where the remains of the
dead prisoners were supposed to he hur
ried. As if the tortures and degradations
of their wretched, life were sufficient, the
culminating. stroke was giveri if their
mode of interment.' In long fitches,
scarcely two feet in depth,, without coffin
or cover, without the ordinary , decent
composing of their limb, but carelessly
hustled into the bed Which was to be their
last, thirteen, thousand and eight bundled
shrunken, ghastly bodies have been ,tos-

than poor one. Half of the energy
displayed in keeping ahead as Is required
to eateh up when behind will save credit,
give more time to attend to business, and
add to the profits and reputation of those
who work for gain. Be prompt. Keep
your word. If you promise to meet a
man, or do a certain thing at a certain
moment, be ready at the appointed time.
If you have work to do it at once, cheer
fully and therefore more speedily and
correctly,, If you go out on businss at
tend promptly to the matter at banc, then
as promptly ( go about your business.
Do not stop to tell stories in business
hours. ' '
If you have a place of business, be
found there when wanted. No man can
get rich by sitting around saloons, playing
old sledge, euchre, peanuckle or other
games for whiskey. Never "fool" on bu
siness matters. If -you have to labor for
i living remember that one hour in the
morning ia better than two at night. If
you employ others, be on hand to see that
they attend to their duties, and to direct
woik to advantage. Have order sys
temregularity, .promptness, liberality.
Do not meddle with business yon know
nothing of. Whatever you do, do well.
Never buy an article simply because the
man who. sells will take it out in trade.
Trade is money. Time. . is. money. A
good business habit and reputation is al
ways money. Make your place of busi
ness . pleasant and attractive, then stay
there to wait on customers.. Never. use
quick words or allow yourself to make
hasty and ucgbnt)cmanly remarks to those
in your employ, for to do so lessens their
respect for you and your influence over
them. .Help yourself and .others will
help, you-... Be faithful over the interests
confided to your keeping and all in good
time your responsibility will be increased.
Do not build till you have arranged and
laid a good foundation. Do not as you
hope.pr work for success, spend time in
loafing. If your time is your, own, bu
siness will surely suffer if you .do. If it
is given to another for , pay, it belongs to
him and you hayei no, more right to steal
that than to steal money. Be obliging.
Strive to avoid harsh words and personalis
tics. Do not ktck.eyery stone in the path.
More miles can be made in a day by (,oing
steadijy , on than by stopping to kick.
Pay you go. A man of honor respects
his word as he does, .hi bond. Ask but
never beg. . Help others when you can
without inconvenience to yourself. But
never give when you cannot afford to,
simply because it is fashionable. . Learn
to say no. No necessity of snapping it
out dog fashion, but,firmly and respect
fully., nave but few confidents. The
f!:wer the better. Use your own brains
rather than others. Think and act for
yourself. Be honest Be vigilant Be
active and liberaj. .Keep ahead, rather
than behind the times. . Young rain cut
this out, and if there is folly in t&e argu-
menta, letua know. ., ... ;
