XXX V illth Congress---Firit Session.
Weertzercw, Feb. 27.
Mr. Harding ( Ky.)'argued! against the
President's plan of reconstructitA character
izing the scheme asmapped outiv the master
builder 'with a pencil dipped in blood. He
(Mr. Harding) assumed thatthetsecession or
dinances were void, and in the termination of
the rebellion the revolting State have a right
to return, with all their privileges under the
Mr. Denning (Coml.) mai l that
though the President's plan i not beyond
cavil, it as as complete and mprehensive
as the intricacies of the subjecti will permit,
and possesses the rare merit of 'the justice of
the Government to the insurgeht States and

Delivered in the )(louse , of Represents

tion proposing to requiraproofkof ley
alty front persons maiming. payment
for damaged bythe rebel raids.
Mr. Sp aker, my,regret that the gyr.tlernan
from Northumberlabd (Mr. ninny) is not pres•
ent, is modified by the fabt that 'whatever may
be said here tomight,. Lt-_y time during his
absence, by any one, will b.e'faithfulfy convey
cd to him by the record of the rroceedlugs f this
body. That record, Or, of what has passe in this
discussion ccinfirmloy.recolleotiOn - 44 •to the
correttna=s of the Atni t qfiiiiii from Ditlkwire,
(Mr. Paws) when herkaid, that writhing in
this discussion which has given it a Oarty aspect
arose enii ely frorulhe remarks of the gentle
man from Northuraberiand. When the gentle
man from Clearfield (Mr. BoYszt) 'Very properly
rraLde the inquiry hci.v the standard of loyalty
was to he ascertained, he said noiltiO about
party, but left the*eation open, whether this
applicatV.on of 'a test ,of loyalty referred' to Re
publicans or Demograts. No sooner, however,-
bad the gentleman Northumberland stood
upon his feet, than he assumed that all the res
olutions of the geriileman from Washington,
were a direct attack up.m the Democratic Party.
Without 133113 g able to chooie as good words as
the gentleman trim WashingtOn, I -mill say
that men who exclisia' theriaseives before they
are assailed, are their own accusers.
What is there, 'in this refrolatkin' or this
WIIIREAS, Theta is — rea . son to believe that
the rebel invasions of Pennsylvania-were, in 4
great measure, brought about through the con
nivance. and
,by the - encortfegtinent- of dislo) al
persons in our prop State: T. , `i.* ~ `,
"And whereas, Claims for damages done during
those invasions are now being'vresented to this
Legislature; therefore,;.

la there anyttlng said here about DemoCracy
or Republicanis#t ? The citiettion presented is a
great, a gloiions qtfestion, •pdt to' every
man, and every man oughtto meet It, under
any circums'augp. • , , •
The gentlemen from Franklin (11r. Sumter)

Now, sir,-y u4nd:tio each dithis
resolution Of 111111 preamble :' It applfes :to
every man without reference to party. Ism
prepared to meet it', and gentleman on the other,
aide, I doubt not, are prepared to meet it the
g,entlernan from n'abklin doubtless'pre
p aryd to me t it, hoWever .and whenevry it
comes. I have met ft When I have_gone down
to that' sad'peninsula with 'a bleeding heart, to
reach, as'l suppose.d, the dead body of one who
Was dearer to me than myself—l - met it - there
before I could reach the epot . l. cOng,lit, and so
with hundreds of loyal rifer-=as good men •as
the .gebtlemart from Northumberland el . , any
whom be represents •:-Vrtio stood up the.ie to
take that solemn oath of allegiance, expressive
of tlieir 'eve 'of' their country and their deter
minatien to stand by it. Why should we not
meet it, sir? We met it when W 3 first stood up
as legislators sere; , we meet, it when we enter
upon any priblieoffice; and when wepropose now
—seeing tbe perjury which- has manifestett
itself in , the halls of our National Legislature,
and which:has been develoPed th ougbont the
whole laud, through these who have takeijthe
same oath as ourselves, as legislators, as" 1 . 14-
yen, or in any position
they may meetly in
the land--wheri, by reason " - ilthat, we propose
now to 'go furtherinto detail, and .to ask:
man to support the Constitution of his State,
and,, above his State, of his.nation, why-should
we be met by gentlemen saying, "you "Mean
us?". Let us meet the queition, and let us act
together as One man, throwing aside all. these
questions of party, when we come to consider a
question paramount, allTarty,, to life. and. to,
everything but cur accountability to Him Who
formed us as a nation.
Sir, one test of loyalty that I would, put,
would bo that a man should be desirous to re-'
pel the invaders froth our own State: 'I spelk
of our own State just at this moment, but I
say that far above the State is the nation. Yet
how was it whenthese men who were the' cause'
.of this great idea.' who inflicted this injury Upon
the citizens of the great Cumberland valley
how was It lirtbiiivery . town, and in these very
halls, when this mighty army, which had rav
aged its own country, proposed, as it witesaid •
by the Governor of this Commonwealth but a
short time since, to breathe for awhile the free'
'air of Pennsylvania, such:alms - they had never
breathed-before ? All around this hall, tat that
time, and in this' hall—l speak that which I do
know—men were sneering atthe efforts of the
Executive of the State and the Executive of the
nation .to repel. the invasion. „Theard with my.
DV/nears Men who, if in 'their - place?, WolliallOW
be within the sound of my voice, members of
the Legislature of Pennsylvania, sneering at
these efforts to repel iavasion t and speaking of
it, as if no invasion existed. Had they wanted
but a few days they would haie found that
there was hardly, house in all this State With
out its 'mourners,. became of those who died
upon the battle-field of Gettysburg to repel
that invasion. Shame upon such' men and
upon those who sustain them !
lam happy here to say that one of there
men, a member cf the Legislature of liennsyl-
Mtia i WaS rebuked by a gentleman, now a mem
ber of this Honse—wbom I do not :see in his
seat, but who does not belong to this side of
the House. Honor be to that man wherever
he is. I speak'of him only. I doubt - not that
there are many more like him. Such, I say, is
one test of a won't' loyalty.
With tome of the senti.nents which were
uttered by the gentleman - froth Northumber
land I can agree. I can agreelhat true - Damoc•
racy and losalty We convertible terms. I can
agree that the Democracy upon Which the in
stitutions Of, this cone+ ry are based; the prin
ciple which Is to be foetid in every:trite man/
whether h calls himself Republican oe Whig,
or Federal, er Demohritt—Pean-agree that that
Democracy, is a oonvertible Withloyalty.
But what do you unde.rstand by Democracy?
DO you understand that-you -shall adhere to
the r;pinions of thbse whom, 'as an organized
party, you folleti—mert synch as thee° who da
nounced..Jockson, and
,Je.ffdlson., and &hunk?
If that is a te.st of Democracy, it Is, not the De
mme:icy that 1 follow', Mid have followed for
years. What I taketo be the true Dmnocracy
is that Which recogaiaeS the will of ..the people,'
exprcsaid by the majority through the forme
which they.have adopted, and. carried, into. gotez„.

Let us have righ, views, upon this subject.'
Let us noktest oar loyalty by any such' scheme
as' that ofAhose men who have arisen in the
South, anti hive poisoned the nitada as well
as the hearts of many in, the North with the
belief that this great nation, - feinted by the
people, was' a mere eotripect of States. 'Why,
when as boys we read our. Constitution, those.
of us whose heads are now :grey, we
looked upon the' - government:Witte nited
States as a compact of States. We read,lfthere
as plain is A, 11, p;•
that "We;thepeople,"*.frin
this great government; and we read there, too,'
that we gave to this great "government, as a'
'peotle, certain rights and powers Or its preser
'vation; and that in the exercise of;Mode poWeis
and the maintenance of these rights this goy.
err:meat of the United States was supreMe; that
when the .government, enacted laws; throigh
our constituted nrithorities and ",throngh the
forms which the people deputed, those
Ism 7ere supreme, and the man wane traitor
and a scoundrel—(those were our sentiments
then, and they are mine uow)--who deliber
ately says, that any State" has rights which
will put, it above the goveittinerit of the United
States, andthet we; as citizens of this State or
any other Siete, should obey the behests of our
Stet) to the overturning of the . government of
the United States.
Now, sir, I say, as a result. of these prima
pies, that, .coming up to this standard in aUch
a time as this no loyal man will stop to inquire
what are the causes of the war.,., There is a
war; there is aneffort to detroy _ the e cOuntry;"
there is an effort to bring men who ' have hid
no heart for freedom as long ,aathey have been
men, to relgtr , .over ns, Yea{ I use . .the word
reign, for , they look to a monarchy", if not to
despotic power. I say that they look to bring
ing men of that kind to reign,over no under
those circumstance& I say a man has no loy
alty who betrays his heartlessness to his coun
try, by alleging as an excuse forthat heartiest
nem and disloyalty, that sectionalisni brought
•on this war. Suppose it,did. Why, there has.
'been sectionalism in : this sountry since 1820,
and we at the North then, under the protest of
the same base hearts and base. minds in the
country, yielded' to .. .that sectionalism. We
met it again about 1832, '3 or '4, and we
yielded.egain. And the gentleman who says
that that seetionallim was developed by the
free. States, of the North has not. read history
aright; he has read it with a worse than jaun
diced eye, with a perverted judgment. It is
not,for mehere to say what other .principles
might have been operating upon him when he
thus Interpreted history as saying that section
alisrn arose at the North, or was . carried into
effect there... Nor will a man who has any
loTalty, when we are standing up here against
all the power of rebellion, dishonest, thieving
rebellion, sneer at the efforts that our Govern
ment in her wonderful throes is using Air the
purpose of sustaining liezaelf. -
The gentleman from, Northumberltuni in
dulged in a great deal of wit:l suipCtiel--I do
not know that it was not wit—about the taxes
and the lictemes•which are laid upon tlB. Why,
is that not Institutional I Is it not constitu

tax 1 It may be hard that a tax 6hould be im

It has -beau said ..somewhere 7 --I ,think by
,13lacketone—that yon can judge' the character
of a people by their Poetry. Now, in the Bev
olution'w. had the goal olVaong of "Yankee
Doodle,'! , as part of the national poetry, and
our hearts, thrill to-day when we hear it.
When thedrumgoes along with the sound of
''Yankee Doodle;" it htings tears to my eyes,
when I' see thattfiat dram before a band marching
on to the battle field to.defend.my fireside, or
when I find them returning with their thinned
ranks, and , see the widoWs : of those who have
been left behind—standing and'looking in vain,
and knewing•theyarelooking in vain for their
husbands ; 'and the mother coming and look
ing for her dear boy, knowing that she shall'
.never see him again on this aide of the Jordan.
"Yankee Poodle" then goes to my heart.
In the war of 1612,10yal men had .the glo
rious "Star Spargled Banner," and we rejoice
in it again. Now the
.loyal men have intro
duced another song, to an old nursery `rhyme.
It was corded, I believe, from that loyal paper,
the New York Day Book ; and that it might
not be lost to ne benighte&Pennsylvanians, it
is found to-d by in that loyal ' piper , the Patriot
and Union. Laces a nen Wan& I will read it:
"Sing a song of greenback.,
Pockets fall of trash '
Over head arid ears in . debt,
And out of - reedy:cash.
Heaps of ,tax-collectore"---.
I think the gmitleman from Norihumberlatad
must hare read this before he made his speech.
"Heaps of tax-collectors,
'As busy as'a bee '
Ain't we in a pretty fix,
With gold, at fifry.thres?
Abe in the White House,
Proclamations writing,
Meade on the Rapichn, '
Afraid to do the fightini."
Meade afraid to do the fighting ! Publish
that within fifty miles of Gettysburg ! Send it
throughout this town and perhaps to Gettys
burg itself, and call men out upon Cemetery
Hill to read that Meade was afraid to do the
fighting! ,that
have mercy upon us if Meade
had been afraid .to do• the fighting! Where
would' have been your capital this day if Meade
had been afraid to do the fighting ? And yet
is not this confirming what I said a moment
ago, that you will , look in vain in the pipers of
which I have spoken to find prafee of our great
men ? - Meade afraid to do the fighting Why,
it could only have been worse if it had . been

Gilmore at Charleston,
Lost in a fog;"—
If Gilmore is hidden in a fog, it is the tog
that be has made himself by those cannon
whose bulletithe has poured upon Sumter,shoot
lug down the dirty rag that so many men even
here in Pennsylvania love better than the s'ars

run it up once more, and it will go down ag ain

No, there Is no fog about Gilmore We see
him plainly here, though we have never set our
eyes upon him. We know him here, standing
up for the country atAl those of the brave men
that have been under him. Neither he nor
they have been lost in a fog; and the day will
come when they will stand out in the sheen of
a clear sun when the great firmanent of this
nation is cleared of the fog of rebellion.
Bat that is not all:

Well, sow, upon this Turk question, I sup
pose tliey would use the language of their
•friends South of Mason and Dixon's line, who
are endeavoring'to overthrow our government,
and would call Butler a beast, only it would
not make rhyme; hut I suppose Turk will do
as well as beast- I want just such Turks as
Butler—the kind of Turks who, when am an

that, let Ifs have a few' more' Turks, and let
those Turks go to work, not merely at New
Orleans. or at Fortress Monroe, or at Southern,
but let them go to work in Pennsylvania, may
hap at Harrisburg.
There is a little more yet.
"Sprague in Rhode Island,

Now, I must say that this shows a great
deal bf venom, thouuh perhaps it was made to

Sprague defrayed the expenses of an entire
regiment. and started them off in April, 1861,
to' protect the Capital; therefore be ought to be
sneered at by men who desired its fill. What
has hedone ? Ells State, which, according to
their theory, is above the government, has
sent him there to represent her in the Congress
of therUnited Stag; and what has he ever
done that should - call down the sneers of any
man, unless it . vras that he defended his coun

cient cause.
" Everetkal Gettysburg,
Talking like an ass.
Banks out in Texas,
Trying to cut a figure."
He is cutting a pretty handsome figure, un
ites lam mistaken. He has got into Texas,
and he has cut a piece out of territory formerly
held by the rebels; he bas put there the.army
of the United States, which in due time will
match throes& Texas, and that State will be
lobg to the Union agate. ' I doubt not we shall
soon bear that he is cutting a figure at 'Mobile
also. .

- Is not Burnside in a fix? I reckon he fixed
Loogstreet. I reckon he, and Grant, and
Thomas, and Hooker, did some little fixing out
there a short time ago; and that fixing, I want
you to bear in mini, is the occasion of all this
kind of poetry, and of alt such speeches as we
hain heard in this Hone from the gentleman
from Northumberland. -
Novi, they have left the last great man for
the last. We will see what they sung about
him. • .
"Dahlgreen at Sumter,

Grant I Oh ! could they not have spared
that great man? Could they not have felt that
they were trespassing too much upon the pa

Grant in this way ? Did they know that one-half
of them are anxious that Grant should be their
candidate for the Presidency ? And will they

pected, but I wrshed to show just wtat is the
sentiment of those people who stand up here in

Washington in saying that this does not belong

hearts of the mass of those who belong to the

The gentleman. froth Northumberland, when
he referred to the destnietlon of his newspaper,
asked who disapproved of that. Well, now.
t will atk a question .before answering that.
Who disapproved of running the Tories away
in the times of the Revolution? Who "disap

fathers got.up in the Revolution? It was not
