THE UNION-SAVING MEETING
Model Union Platform Suggested.
A so-called Union Meeting is to be held
this evening at the Court House, as will
be seen by reference to our advertising
columns. We have not been definitely
advised by the originators of the move
ment what object they design to mom
pliiit, unless it be to assure our South
Carolina friends that we are now, as we
have always been, in favor of " THE
UNION, ONE AND INSEPARABLE." No
sensible man in the South believes that
the city of Harrisburg contains a single
disunionist, excepting, perhaps, the ed
itors of the Patriot and Union, one
of whom is an officeholder under the Old
Public Functionary. Has not this city
returned more colored men to the South
than any other in the North ? Did not
our resident Democratic Slave Commis
sioner, in times past, return the negros
to the South so fast that the Virginians
sent them back to us, with complaints
that we forced upon them more "chattels"
than they claimed? Have we not per
mitted colored men to be taken, on
our public streets, by Southerners, bran
dishing pistols and bowie knives in
our midst; and men, too, .who proved
their freedom before the Slave Commis
sioner in Philadelphia, by whom they
were afterwards discharged ? Have we
not permitted negros to be kidnapped,
time after time, from this city, and let the I
kidnappers go unmolested until they be
came too bold in their operations; and
then, when they were finally convicted
and sentenced to solitary confinement, has
not the Democratic Governor pardoned
them What more do our Southern
friends want ? Does South Carolina
think that we, in the free North, should
go down upon our knees and implore them
to stay in the Union,and not starve to spite
us? If such be the case, let us at once unde
ceive them, and tell them, as the people
of Oregon did Joe Lane, to "go out,"
without talking so long about it. South
Carolina has been threatening to g Asolve
the Union" for nearly thirty years past;
and is now a little more clamorous than
usual, because a weak old man occupies
the Presidential chair and winks at their
treasonable movements; and because they
are about to lose the "spoils."
The Republican party of the North is a
UNION PARTY. The patriotic masses who
compose its membership have never
breathed a disunion sentiment—have ever
been faithful to the Constitution and Laws
of their country. Why should they be
held responsible for the doings of a few
Abolitionists, who did not even act or vote
with the Republican party at the last
election, but had a candidate of their own
in the field ? The sensible and well
meaning men of the South know all this
and respect us for our firm adherence to
principle. The Republicans of the North
are the friends of the poor white man, and
their chief aim has been, and is now, to
elevate that class. They have advocated
a Protective Tariff, which would not only
employ every white man in Pennsylvania,
but would soon elevate them to independ
ence; while the Locofoco disunion party
oppose the interests of the North and
make war upon the rights of free labor.
Let the South Carolina and a few other
Southern Senators withdraw from „the
Senate for a few weeks, and the Tariff bill
will then pass that body. Let the meet
ing to-night be managed by such Locofoco
disunionists as those who manage the
Patriot and Union. That sheet has pub
lished more disunion articles than any one
paper in the South. Mr. M' DOWELL, the
Washington Clerk, would make an excel
lent President, and Mr. BARRETT Would
do for Secretary. They might succeed in
making the people believe that they are
The resolutions adopted by the Union
saving meeting at Philadelphia must be
acknowledged to be greatly in advance of
anything heretofore known in this lati
tude, and many who read them will doubt
less believe they say - all that is necessary
by way of conciliating our Southern breth
ren and deprecating their displeasure;
but in order that our position as modern
Unionists may be more fully understood,
we would suggest that at the meeting to
be held in Harrisburg to-night, the follow
ing additional resoluticins be added to those
adopted at the Philadelphia meeting.
The object to be attained is too important
to be allowed to fail for lack of a little
additional selta basemen b :
MODERN UNION PL:ITFORM
Resolves, That the Declaration of Independ
ence, however it may have been misunderstood
formerly, is not a declaration of the equal rights
of all men—but only means that slaveholders
have equal rights to the enjoyment and protec
tion of their property in every portion of the
Union ; and we therefore affectionately suggest
to our brethren of the L-gislatnye of South
Carolina, who lately by a solemn set expunged
the 4th of July from the inumb,r of holidays in
that State, that their said act, though doubt
less adopted from the purest. and most patriotic
motives, was hardly call( d for by the exigencies
of the occasion.
Resolved, That in expressing the above senti
ment we do so in all deference and submission
to the better judgment of our Southern breth
ren, pledging ourselves to rescind and expunge
it if it shall prove disagreeable to them.
Resolved, That although in deference to the
prejudices of the masses of the North, it would
be highly imprudent at present to censure such
men as George Washington, Gen. Lafayette,
Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, yet
we freely acknowledge that all of them were
guilty of acts which no Union man can for a
moment tolerate. Washington declared that it
was his "most ardent wish to see some plan
adopted by which slavery shall be abolished by
law," and he gave freedom, by will, to all his
slaves. Lafayette wrote that he "would never
have drawn the sword for American Liberty,
had be supposed he was founding a slavehold
ing nation.' Jefferson and Franklin proclaim
ed sentiments still more incendiary ; we there
fore pledge ourselves to our Southern brethren,
that we will in future frown upon any attempt
to give countenance or currency to the writings
of these men, and we recommend the Legisla
ture of Pennsylvania to take measures for the
suppression of their works.
Resolved, That in the careful search we have
instituted among the Statutes of Pennsylvania,
we have discovered that the Act of 1780, by
which slavery was forever abolished in this
State, is the parent and fountain of all the oth
er Statutes of which our Southren brethren so
justly complain. Especially do we reprobate
the preamble to that act, which unblushingly
declared that the slaves were "held in unde
served bondage," and that by giving them
their freedom, they were "enabled to add one
more step to universal civilization ;" "our
hearts being enlarged with kindness,"
had the effrontery to declare, "towards men of
all conditions and nations," and other cant
phrases of like purport. We call upon the Le
gislature to repeal the said act of emancipation
and its preamble on the very first day of its en
suing session ; and the Governor is hereby re
quested to forward copies of said act of repeal
to the Governors of all the cotton States, and
to the Southern Representatives in Congress,
by special messengers.
Resolved, That ministers of the gospel be re
quested to cease quoting or preaching from cer
tain texts in the Bible which Olorant people
accept as inimical to slavery ; such as "God
bath made of one blood all the nations of men;"
"Proclaim liberty throughout the land, to all
tlae inhabitants thereof ; " "Do unto others as
you would have others do unto you," &c. ; and
we hereby pledge ourselves in behalf of all mod
ern Unionists that we will not support any
ministers that neglect this greatly needed cau
Resolved, That a committee be appointed to
erase the inscription on the old State House bell.
The sentiment of that inscription grates harsh
ly on visitors from the South, and cannot be
tolerated by any modern Unionist.
Resolved, That although we would prefer, on
account of our character with foreign nations,
that the slave-trade-should not be legalized, yet
we acknowledge that our Southern brethren
are the ones principally interested in the mat
ter; and we therefore shall cheerfully yield our
acquiescence, if they demand the re-opening of
that traffic. We have no more right to de
nounce-the foreign slave-trade than the buying
and selling of slaves at home, which latter act
no modern Unionist dare object to.
Resolved, That the election of a President who
is unacceptable to the South, and the passage of
State laws in opposition to the wishes of our
Southern brethren, are highly injurious to the
interests of Southern trade, and we pledge our
selves that nothing of the kind shall occur
again. Our political principles in the future
shall be governed by our commercial interests
and in strict conformity with the requirements
of - Southern politicians.
Resolved, In short, that the preservation of
slavery, and not the protection of liberty, is the
chief aim and end of government.
Resolved, That our Southern masters are jus
tified in their treatment of Northern white men
who visit that section. Their unhallowed feet
should not desecrate that consecrated soil ; and
those who attempt to exercise the right of
free speech, when "invading" the South on
business or pleasure, deserve to be tarred and
feathered, lynched and cottoned.
Resolved, Finally, that on our bellies we will
go and dirt will we eat all the days of our lives
if the secessionists will forgive our past offences
and graciously accept our humble pledges of
The Republican papers of the interior
are beginning to speak out in condemna
tion of the farcical Union demonstrations,
the real design of which is to give aid
and comfort to the Locofoco party. The
Delaware County Republican, comment.
ing upon the late "cotton" demonstration
in Philadelphia, says what every intelli
gent and candid man will admit to be true,
that "the object was not so much to con
vince the South that the people of Phila
delphia are loyal to the Union, as to in
form our Southern brethren that certain
gentlemen in the city have dry goods,
.other articles which they
are willing to exchange for cash or cotton.
To us, who breathe the pure air of the
country, uncontaminated by city influ
ences, this movement looks like one of
extreme folly. It was got up by the dis•
union Democratic leaders, and engineered
by them, with the assistance of a few of
those nondescripts in politics, known as
'People's party men,' -of which the weak
backed Mayor is the head. We have no
men in our ranks, thank Heaven, whose
fealty to the Union is questioned at the
North. To those only who have contri
buted their full share to bring about the
political panic which has prostrated busi
ness, belong the honor of attempting to
convince our fellow citizens of the South
of their devotion to the Union. Penn
sylvania has always been true to the Union
and the Constitution. Her sons have
ever been prominent in every battle in
which the country was engaged. She
has no laws of which any of her siste
tacimoptuaitia Jiktitv ettegrapti, Oaturbap littrnaort, *Mamba 15, 1860.
States can complain, and why should her
citizens join in the folly of these Union
demonstrations, which are only calculated
to make us appear contemptible in the
eyes of all intelligent men? Her citizens—
outside of Philadelphia at least—will, we
trust, never become slaves to the South,
or to any other portion of our country."
Tee Reading Daily Leader, in a sensi
ble article onfthis subject says:
The people of the North, with the exception
of a few fanatics in the New England States—a
handful of men devoid of personal, pecuniary
or political influence—are unanimous in their
devotion to our glorious Union, and are pre
pared at a moment's notice to do battle against
a common enemy, whether in the form of a
foreign foe, or of a rebellious force, who, Were
„,arding the inheritance bequeathed them by
their forefathers, engage in a fratticidul war
fare. Were it not for the ambitious designs,
blasphemous expressions, and incendiary advice
of a few irresponsible and reckless demagogues
in the Southern States, the people of the North
would never have been insulted by such calls
as have lately appeared in the press of this and
other States, north of Mason and Dixon's line.
Union ! Where do we find the true lovers of
the Union and the Constitution ? In the very
States which are now traduced and ridiculed by
Southern Senators and Representatives. Our
own Commonwealth has not been exempt from
the sneers of these "fire eaters ;” but which of
the Slates included within the limits of the
"Sunny South," can show a more loyal and
conservative population than Pennsylvania?
None. They may abuse her for the manner in
which she cast her last vote ; and they may
point to the acts of a few excited .nqroes who
attempted to rescue a brother from the hangs
of a former master ; but when our blessed
birth-right is in danger, party ties are ignored,
and the hearts and hands of millions of freemen
will unite in defending it. With such a unani
mous sentiment pervading the minds of our
people, it is an insult upon a community even
for a single citizen to recommend the calling of
a public meeting to repeat facts which are
known to every resident of the place in which
the gathering is to be held. The patriotism
which prompts the act must be of the "Fourth
of July" order, and "Bunkum" the — motiVe of
the call. The laws of Pennsylvania are not re
pugnant to the feelings of the most sensitive
Southerner; her citizens are loyal and con
servative ; and these Union meetings within
her limits are a species of humbug not to be
FROM THE FEDERAL CAPITAL,
Correspondence of the Telegraph.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 14, 1860
I had a conversation with a gentleman to
day, direct from Springfield, 111., who had
several interviews with Abraham Lincoln. Of
course these interviews were only such as are
afforded to almost every man calling on the
President elect, being nailing more than con
versations on the general topics of the day, with
such allusions to the present state of public
feeling in various parts /If the country, as/ it
would seem impossible to avoid while talking
to a man in Mr. Lincoln's position. He re
gards the action of those Southern men who
oppose him in advance,as nothing more . than
the ebulition of spiteful disappointment, wholly
unsupported by reason, sense, or judgment.—
For the South he has always cherished as warm
a feeling as any man could entertain fOr atri
section of his country. For her peculiar in
stitution,.he never entertained any other view
than that of opposition in the proper place and
at the appropriate period, and at the same time
yielding to every State the right to regulate
its own domestic concerns, with power to es
tablish such a system of apprenticeship or form
of service, as may seem best fitted for the wel
fare of the citizens thereof and the public good.
My informant did not convey these words to
me as having been uttered by Mr. Lincoln, but
such were the terms of the inference he drew
from the conversation. That the Administra•
tion of Mr. Lincoln will be conservative and
eminently patriotic, no sensifi t te man in the
country will deny. The extremes of all sec
tions are bound to be disappointed. He will
not suffer himself to be intimidated by the fire
eaters of the South, and much less will he pan
der to the element of Abolitionism at the
North, which explodes in libels on religion and
the pyrotechnics of women's rights conven
The resignation of Howell Cobb, Secretary of
the Treasury, has neither chagrined or disap
pointed a single individual in this city. Even
among Democrats, it is hoped that Cobb's exit
from the Cabinet will leave the President un•
embarrassed, and perhaps imbue him with some
little reason, and induce him to act fairly to
wards all parts of the country for the remain
der\ of his administration. On all questions
affecting the policy of the administration, there
existed, invariably, a difference between. the
President and Howell Cobb. He was' the real
author of the Kansas difficulty, and b3rlis in
fluence alone, the North has been cheated out
of the protection which its labor has so-long
been competing to receive. After having ex
hausted the Treasury by a series of financial
blunders and the anticipated payment of ad
vance bonds, he retires from the Treasury to
satisfy his nullifying and secession friends in
Georgia. Such conduct is a. , fair speeimen of
Democratic statesmanship of the latter day de
Sixty-one years ago to-day, at the age of
sixty-eight, George' Washington breathed his
last at his manorial residence at Mount 'Vernon,
on the banks of the Potomac. A few years be
fore his death, George Washington issued an
address to his countrymen, imploring them to
cherish the institutions and guard the govern-'
ment which he, and his compatriots had estab
lished and organized. Since the death of George
Washington some very mysterious changes
have taken place in• the people and the pros
pects of the land he loved so ardently ; and if
he were living now, he would be placed under
the strictest surveillance by his own immediate
neighbors as an abolitionist. But I will not risk
the chance of injuring his memory in the esti
mation of the fire-eaters of the South by allud
ing further to his opinions on the subject of
Couons.—The sudden changes of our climate
are sources of Pulmonary, Bronchial and Asthmatic Af
fections. Experience having proved that simple reme
dies often act speedily and certainly when taken in the
early stages of the disease, recourse should at once he

the Cold, Cough, or Irritation of the Throat be ever so
slight, as by this precaution a more serious attack may
be warded off. Public Speakers4nd Singers will find

WASHINGTON, Dec. 15
The President's proclamation recommending
to the people of the Uated States to observe
the 4th day of January next as a day of hu
miliation, fasting and prayer, is officially pub
lished. He says that hope seems to have de
serted the minds of men and that God's arm
alone can save us from the awful effects of our
own crimes and follies.
Rumors are in circulation that Secretary
Thompson has resigned, but there is authority
for saying that such is not his present inten

There is but little if any confidence reposed
in the assurances that South Carolina will not
resist the Federal authorities during the Ad

regarded as mere promises, to quiet the appre
hensions hi official quartets. Lieut. General
Scott has expressed the opinion that additional
forces should be sent to South Carolina, for the
protection of the public property. The Presi

FE la I 21r.,
I thought I was dreaming. Quite wild with surprise
For an insjant I closed both my mouth and my ey es
The formelTlest speaking the spell I might break,
The latter to prove I was really awake.
Above me, beside me, before me, around,
Was scattered the semblance of all that's been found
Remarkable, beautiful, laughable, gay,
Since the world was created. e'en down to to day.
Each object was fraught with most wonderful grace,
And look where I would, naught but beauty 11 ace.
'The mist of bewilderment passing away,
I noticed a camel hitched fast to a dray,
Who qu'etly pulling his-burden along,
Preceded a queer but magnificent throng
Of poets, and princes, musicians and nuns,
Coraleted knights, and soldiers with guns,
Shepherds and students, peasants and kings,
Women in wooden shoes, ladies with wings,
All on a pilgrimage, bound for a shrine
Galled—Please guess its name, for their secret's not
In a grove in their rear an elephant grazed,
While Tone and tigers looked on quite amazed
At an oz, who declared—the benevolent beast—
He was fattening himself for a Christmas feast.
Some reindeers from Lapland. some birds from Brazil,
Each holding a diamond, or pearl in its bid ;
Arabian horses, and stately giraffes,
A glum looking bear, 'which actually laughs,
Alligators from Egypt, and hogs from Japan,
A. monkey which danced quite as well as a man,
American sheep whose musical bass
Were accompanied by donkey's more musical brays,
All peacefully Oland the delights of that grove,
And seemed ruled by no power stronger than love.
A few steps beyond was assembled a group
Of Chinamen dining on rich kitten soup.
While Japanese Tommy, the witty young noodle,
Regaled them with snatches from old Yankee Doodle.
A. venerable schoolmaster sat in a corner ,
His name I believe was Ifynheer DinglestOrmen
Teachingtwenty-fonr urchins, asnear him they stood,
Their alt, bay, Gray lesson. The sight did me good.
Behind him an arsenal cooly revealed
Its treasures of cannon. swords, lances and shield,
But each from its duty had found a release,
For the motto that ruled, was "La Union there's peace.'
Garibaldi played checkers with kings in disguise,
John Brown promenaded with Benry A. Wise,
And Blue Beard who kiMed his inquisitive wives
Was giving Paul Pry an account et their lives.
Uncle Tom and his Cabin was there in great state
Surrounded by friends, both the small and the great.
Jobe Gilpin was taking his unlucky ride,
While honest Ben Franklm jogged on by his side. -
S me horrid old ogres I saw with surprise,
Rocked dear little babies ; while fairies with eyes
Bright as candles, and dresses of snowiest white
Looked on with expression of purest delight.
Swiss cottages, sheep-folds, villages , t wns,
Dogs dressed up like dandies, old witches and clowns,
Lord Chesterfield changed to a smart suple Jack,
Whiskerandoes who spring at a touch from a sack,
Victoria's bed with its rich silken fo'ds,
And sweetmeats to heal the most obstinate colds ;
The loveliest bonbons for Christmas trees.
Innumerable puzzles one's patience to Mass.
My brains must be swept 'with a magical broom
E'er I tell all I saw in this wonderful room
At length glancing upward, lo I who did I see
But old Santa Claus looking down upon me.
Tlig darling old gentleman looks as of yore,
Heinalres his head quarters-at NEU% -' store;
And all that is comical, eicellent, rare,
You'll find at his rooms—No. 10 Market Square.
