DEMOCRATIC •EGOTIM. Mil . ? Dig.
Prior to each Presidential election, for,
more than thirty years,, the members of the
dominant faction in the Democratic party
shave regularly set up fierce howls in favor
of nullification, or secession, or rebellion.
Just in proportion as the. progress of events
has seemed to undermine their influence
with the masses-, of the population, and
threaten them with. banishment, more or,
less permanent, 6oin —th_e seats of povter,
they prostituted and disgraced, =have these
howls increased in volume and bitterness—
In 1856, when it' appeared probable that
Mr. JOHN, C. , FHHISONT would be elected
President, by the concurrence of a decided
majority of the States, and with none of the
inhabitants resting under disabilities except
the blacks, they became more clamorous
am:Lever before. In substance they claim
ed it to be uncopstitutional for any other
party than the Democratic to elect a Presi
dent, to obtain majorities in the two Houses
of Congress, to frame a policy for the goy-.
ernment to,pursue, and to carry that pol
icy into effect. With unbounded arro-,
'gance, they substantially claimed, af
ter the manner - of imperial despots, to
have a patent' from the Almighty; and
,recoguised in the Constitution
itself, exclusively . empowering them to
direct and control the Government, leaving
to the pepublicans, and whoever else did
not accept their ideas and fall in with their
plans,'the duty of passive obedience and
the, payment of such taxes as migl be lev
ied upontlmm. They carried this, infatua
ton to the extent of making all the arrange
mentS essential to a disruption of the Union
in case Mr. BUCHANAN had been defeated
and Mr. FREmostrrelected. Gigantic frauds
upon the purity of the ballot-boixes, which
they perpetratbd here in Pennsylvania, and
which were afterwards disclosed by formal
proceedings in the Courts of Philadelphia,
left them in possession, of the national ad
ministration, And in consequence they con
cludedlo defer a resort to,civil war for four
years more, Inviting to their. power to in
timidate their opponents, and to their ability
to corrupt the elections, to renew atthe: ex
piration. of that period their lease •of
Befdre the Presidential nominations were
made in 1860, they became greatly alarmed
in view of the manifest concentration of
..pulai opinion and feeling against the ex
tension of Slavery, to which extension they
stood committed, as right and lawful in it
self, and as necessary to the continuance of
their domination in political affairs. They
saw plainly that threats or fisuds, on their
part, would be ineffectual to prevent their
banishment, and they embarked renewedly
in their old conspiracy to revolutionize the
government, trusting to their fierceness in
the onset, and to their detterity in mani
pulation,- to give them success. As soon 'as
Ltsbour was elected, they threw off
the faint disguises they had previously worn;
and deliberately plunged the nation into the
horrors of civil war.
No sooner was the rebellion, suppressed,
than they reverted to the ideas and tactics
which led to it. They systematically de
nounced everythirrg that had been done by
the government, contrary to their liking,
since they were`thrust out of the adminis
tration, as unconstitutional and void.. They
insisted that the tea seceding States, by re
hellion, had wroxiht no forfeiture of their
rights and prerogatives, but were entitled to
coma back, just as they were, with their
Constitutions binding them to fealty to the
ConfederaCy, and all their officers, from Gov
ernor down to pathmasters, sworn to sup-
Port that fraudulent government
For the last three months, and with in
creasing audacity, they have prociainied
their intention to be to resort to war again
in case their interpretation of the Constitu
tion, and their demands in behalf of the re
volted States in accordance with that ex
egesis, shall not be accepted and complied
with. We have heretofore shown the in
culcations of BLAIR, HAMPTON, TOOMBS,
COBB and others on these points, Wo now
direct attention to the declaration of Mr.
T. W. CLAGETT, Democratic candidate for
Congress in the Ileokui, lowa, district.
He says : _
"Do not Northern Radicals, who arc the authors
of all the miseries which have befallen our country
with'. the last six years, know that the two m• Won
Dmvera'ie voters in t he North wilt near..per" ,, t
woof/I,r Radtrat to occupy the, Presidential chair
who may /moved in g•tting a , majority - of the
(oral cotes, rather by excluding th- Nouth,rn States
from voting, or byforcibly ct-prisin a majority of
the wh..te citizens of 'hood States of the etectiee /ran ,
— chin -
"We tell thentotshat the days of their tyranny and
thieving are fast' drawing to &close, and that they
will go out of office at the next Pre 4d.rstia t • lection
•tther by bailors OIL BY IULLE7B—by ballots,. if the
people are allowed to vote, .and by bullets It they
are not." . .!'
What Mr. CLAGGETT and his associates
have at heart is to prevent the Republicans
from electing the next President. His and
their idea is that such an election, however
accomplished,,, .would ,be unconstitutional.
That is only a renewal of the old Demo
cratic egotism, which sets up their explana
tion of the Constitution in the pace of the
instrument itself. He imagines General
Gnarrr can be elected President only by
excluding the seceding States from voting,
osby forcibly depriving a majority of the
white citizens of those States from the
right of suffrage; or, if ho does not so im
agine, he fancies these are the good points
to press upon multitudes of men who will
not stop to verify whether they are well or

them. They have listened to the insolence
of 'Democratic assumptions -for years
put without being moved therebir, and
will not be deflected from their pur
pose by it eithe r flaw or
.i hereailks. As
Ameridan citizens they have the Same an.
thority as their neightiOrs to construe the
Constitution, to nominate candidates for
President and Vice President, to elect them,
as also majorities of .the Senate and House
of Representatives, to frame a platform or
policy of administration, and to carry it
into execution. All these things they have
done heretofore and will do again, not ask
ing leave of the Democrats, but in virtue
of inherent right and the force of numbers.
They intend' to elect GRANT and. COLFAX
by a majority of the Electoral votes that
my be legally, east, , but this is not all; they
intend to give GRANT- and COLFAX much
more than half the Electoral votes that
would be Cast in case all the States were
reconstructed and shared in the election;
and they will then be ready-to meet any
measures Mi:CLACIETT and his associate in
cendiaries may be ; pleased to institute.
There is no danger that any of us will
over-estimate the importance of a perfect
organization of the Republican strength in
this Presidential canvass. It ought to be
understood that this sort of work cannot be
too well or too much done, even were we
to succeed as well as is the regifiar custom
of our friends in New Hampshire, 'who, a
month before the State elections, are able to
anticipate the result with a precision which
has been found to appr oximate within one
per cent. of the fact. This would still leave
the issue of our polls in'greater doubt than
it is comfortable to contemplate. The Re
publicans of each county, precinct and
school-district, ward and block in this
Commonwealth, ought to be able to know,
reliably, the complexion of every vote
therein, whether for us, against us or doubt
ful, and, if doubtful, which way it inclines,
or may be inclined, as early as the first day
of September. The great battici is to be
fought at the October polls; if we there stif
fer a decision to go against us, simply, as it
would-be, from our failure to get out a full
vote of our friends, it would bie next to an
impossibility for UR to repair' the damage in
the three weeks thereafter intervening be
fore the Presidential election. There is but
one way to ensure that full vote at the first
election—and that is to know exactly who
our friends are, and to, complete beforehand
the needful arrangements for ensuring their
attendance. Peimsylvania will poll at each
of the two elections not less than 600,000
votes; she gave. over 597,000 votes two
years since. Last year she polled but 533,-
000 votes, 46,000 'Republicans not voting,
while the opposition put in within 23,000 of
their full strength. It was due to this shame
ful neglect that the infamous frauds, of the
Copperheads ,in Clearfield, Philadelphia,
and elsewhere, were successful in obtaining
the small nominal majority for that. ticket.
If our full vote had been out, these frauds
would hate been unavailing, and we should
have laid the SnAnswoon ticket out cold, in
spite of its frauds, outrages, coffee-colored
forgeries of naturalization _ and the shed
- blood of its murdered victims. We want:all
that sort of thing effectually checked this
yeltr, and the way to do it—the only way—
is by organizing t'ae'proper committees, and
sub-dividink the work down to each' rural
school district and to each block, and even
to each side of each street of,the block, so
that the local committees shall know ex
actly whom to'depend upon as friends or as
Give us fair play,,iand we have a - Clear ma
jority of twenty thousand in this State,
upon ordinary issues and candidates. With
GRAZIT for our greet ieader, and' upon the
momentous issue which will divide the Com
monwealth for Peace or another Civil War,
we can, upon a fair,contest, very nearly
treble that majority. But fair play is just
the very thing that the Cbpperhead swin
dlers who are managing the opposition don't
mean we shall' have If they can help it. They
intend to beat us inl October by colonizing
long the borders, especially from their rebel
lends in Maryland and Virginia; by frau
dulent naturalizations all over the State, and
by stuffing the boxes and cheating in the
count wherever the chance offers. Their
majority on the Supreme Bench has Played
r an effective card right into their hands, by
defeating. the will of the people's represen
tatives expressed in favor of a well-guarded
and honest ,scheme of registry. It
is onderstoOd on
, all hands that they
hake - no hopes in -a fair and honest
election, and that they are bound to win if
they can by such rascalities as we have
hinted at.' This villainy we attribute main
ly to their leaders, the men who manipu
lated. the outrages and murder °Mast Octo
ber, and who are laying their - plans to re
peat the same infamous tactics this fall; the
great mass of the Democratic party are
nocent of all complicity in these crimes,
except that they are not wholly guiltless so
long as they.continue heedlessly to place
their unquestioning confidence in these ras

Rebels 'stun Graut at St. Joseph—Sharp
Rebuke by Gen. Sherman:
ST: Louis, July 80.—A most dastaqy
and villainous insult was offered to General
Grant and his party on the occasion of their
passage through .St. Joseph the other day,
The crowd at the depot, on the General's
arrival, was immense, and a most cordial
.and enthusiistic welcome was given him.
It was observed that a party of rebels was
in the crowd, and, from certain suspicions
movements, it was evident they meant mis
chief. When the General arrived:at the
Pacific House the crowd bad increased "to
several thousand, and in answer to the most
vociferous cheers the General appeared on
the balcony and-spoke as-follows..
"FELLow Cruz-gam—l thank you for
this very cordial reception, but I cannot
make you a speech. I have been traveling
all the time for the past two weeks in the
Western country, and it is the first time I
have ever been in the West. I am tired
and worn ciut, and-you must therefore ex
cuse me for not speaking."
The 'General then retired. This little
speech was received with tumultuous cheers,
after which General Sherman was loudly
called for, and finally appeared on the bal
cony. ; At this juncture the plans of the
rebels were developed.
A man named E. 0. Hays, having been
filled with whiskey for the occasion, tooted
a horn and others cheered for Seymour and
hooted and howled in the most boisterous
and insulting manner. As soon as this 'ex
citement subsided a little, Gen. Sherman
spoke as follows: "Gen. Grant and myrielf
.know how to appreciate any spirit of res
pect, but neither he nor - Myself are to be
" disconcerted by any large. crowd. We are
used to large crowds, and we cannot ,be
disconcerted.. Gen. Grant -has declined to
make a speech, and I think occupying the
position he does before the country, he acts
the part of wisdom."
Here some one called for three cheers for
Seymo'ur, and the cheers of the'ruffiansand
,the groans of the loyal people interrupted
the General for some tune. As soon as
partial quiet was restored, Gen.' Sherman
said: "Gentlemen, ,I do not in general
counsel violence, buti,were La,citizen of St.
Josph, I would take that man,[referring to
the'one who commenced the disturbance],
- down to the Missouri river and- duck him.
We • have fought rebels, and we thought
they had had enough of fighting." This
sentiment called out prolonged and hearty
_cheers, and the General, finding he could,
not be heard further, retired.
The crowd lingered around the Pacific
Howie until a very late hour, and General
Grant, finally, at ten o'clock, held a levee,
and shook hands with a very large number
j the people. General Sherman also par
ticipated, and an hour more was spent - very
