After the meeting had been organized,
Judge PEARSON explained the cause for
which it had assembled by giving a clear
and correct statement of facts as present
ed to the country at this time. He went
into a full explanation of our State laws
relative to the rendition of fugitive slaves,
and was unable to see anything to which
the South could reasonably object. He
considered the conduct of the Governors
and members of Congress from other
States as revolting, and expressed his
unwillingness to forsake his manhood and
bow before the dictations of Southern fire
eaters. He was willing to see all uncon
stitutional laws wiped from the statute
books, but if the South had raised the
present conflict because the people had
elected a particular man for President, he
considered them unfit to live. Whilst
Judge P. was wiling to make all reasona
ble concessions and compromises, he could
not ignore the conduct of the South to
wards Northern citizens who were travel.
ing among them by hanging or tarring and
feathering them at their pleasure. He con
sidered that the time had arrived when
"forbearance ceased to be a virtue." He
deprecated also the conduct of Southern
men in the suppression of the freedom of
speech and of the press. Judge PEAR
SON'S speech was not only powerful but
eloquent, and he was continually applaud
ed by, the audience, to the great discom
fort of the leaders and those who felt
anxious to make themselves conspicuous
in the affair. They were much disap
pointed. Expecting to place a doughface
in the Chair, they found a man who is yet
unwilling to forsake his manhood and lie
down to eat dirt at the dictation of South
ern task-masters. He expressed the true
sentiment of every Northern man who is
willing to do full justice towards our
Southern brethren, but demanding at
same time justice from them.
Mr. LAMBERTON stated that- he had
been deputed by the committee of thirty
three to report the following resolutions :
'Wimp.As, A crisis of alarming magnitude
now eilstsvin the political history of our coun
try, seriously threatening to sunder the politi
cal bonds which have hitherto bound us to
gether as one people in a common destiny, to
to produce anarchy and confusion in all our
social and business relations, and for a time, if
not forever, to destroy the prosperity, happi•
ness and fraternal feeling which have charac
terized us as a united people : therefore
Resolved by the citizens of Harrisburg, That
we entertain an abiding attachment to the
Constitution of the United States In all its parts
and with all its compromises ; and we will
cheerfully, and without evasion or duplicity,
render obedience to all its provisions, adhering
to it as the common bond of our Federal
Union, the charter of our dearest political rights,
and binding equally upon the North, the South,
the East and the West.
2. We affirm our entire willingnes to submit
to and atide by all the decisions of the Supreme
Court of he United States, establishing the
true construction of the Constituiton, and the
laws passed by Congress in conformity there
with. And when a construction thus has been
given, it is the imperative duty, as it should be
the pleasure, of every good citizen to give im
plicit obedience theroto.
3. We respectfully recommend to our State
Legislature a careful revision of our statute
book, and if there be any law thereon hostile
to the Constitution of the United States, or
calculated to obstruct the enforcement of any
law of Congress providing for the rendition of
fugitives from labor, that the same be repealed.
4. We deeply deplore the threatening aspect
of public affairs in some of our Southern States,
and we earnestly invoke on their part forbear
ance and moderation, to the end that the peaco
and welfare of the whole country may be con
tinued and promoted.
6. We utterly repudiate the doctrine that flee
States and slave States cannot co-exist in a com
mon confederacy. •
6. In oar judgment the right of secession, as
claimed by some of the States, has no existence
in the Constitution, and we regard it as a fear
ful remedy for any wrong which the South has
sustained. We believe, with the southern bor
der States, that every grievance complained of
can be redressed within the Union.
7. The recent political action of Penneylva
nia`should not be construed as expressive of
any Desire to impair any constitutional right
posiesed by the &nth.
Hopi. JOHNP. KUNSEL remarked that
he did not mile to yield any manhood
that belongs to a Pennsylvanian ) but that
we could not calculate the horrors of a
civil war. He didn't believe that it would
hurt apy body to declare his attachments
to the Union, and didn't think that the
election of Lincoln was the cause of dis
union. It would have been the same if
Douglas had been elected, and the election
of Breokinridge would have postponed it
only a little longer. He thought the
South had reason to complain of the
North ; that they were risking their lives
to pursue a slave into Ohio or Illinois,
and he considered the Union worth more
than the whole African race. He pro
claimed his devotion to the Union at all
hazards, but did not agree with those
who proclaimed that the day of compro
mise had past. He had always supported
compromise measures, and alluded in
strong language to Henry Clay's compro
Mr. LAMMERTON now moved that the
resolutions be adopted.
Mr. HINELINE offered several resolu
lutiora, but withdrew them for the pres-
Col. L. N. OTT then offered the follow
ing resolutions :
1. That the maintenance of the principles
promulgated in the Declaration of Independ
ence and embodied in the Federal Constitution,
is essential to the preservation of our Republican
Institutions; that the Federal Constitution, the
rights of the States and the Union of the States
must and shall be preserved.
2. That to the union of the States, this na
tion owes its unprecedented increase in popula
tion ; its suiprising development of material
resources ; its rapid augmentation of wealth ;
its happiness at home, and its honor abroad ;
and we hold in abhorence all schemes for dis
union, come from whatever source they may •
and we denounce them as denying the vied/
principle of free government and as an avowal
of contemplated treason, which it is the imper
ative duty of an indignant people strongly to
rebuke and forever silence.
3. That the maintenance inviolate, of the
States, especially the right of each State to
order and control its own domestic institutions
according to its own judgment exclusively, is
essential to that balance of power on which the
perfection and endurance of our political faith
depends ; and we denounce the lawless Irma
sion by an armed force of any State or Territo
ry, no matter on what pretext, as among the
Resolved, That in our judgment it is the opin
ion of the people of Pennsylvania, that the
Constitutional rights of all sections should be
respected and secured, that all the laws should
be faithfully , and promptly executed, and that
the Union of the States, the Constitution and
laws of the United States, be maintained and
enforced in all their integrity.
Gen. MILLER called Mr. Ott to order,
but the President decided Mr. Ott to be
in order, and Mr. Miller took his seat.
Col. Orr then explained his resolutions
in forcible language and was loudly ap
plauded. Some of the doughfaces con
sidered his language, however, a little too
severe, and created a good deal of confu
Mr. SHELL desired the original resolu
Mr. LemßEß,Torr was also anxious to
see the resolutions as reported by him
adopted without additions, and was not
here to say that the North was all right
and the South all wrong. He thought
there were faults on both sides, and there
might be two sides to the question. He
would, however, never recognize the right
of Secession, and Mr. Lamberton closed
by making some eloquent appeals in favor
of the Union.
Col. OTT remarked that he would not
permit Mr. Lamberton to misrepresent
him; that be did not come to the meeting
to be captious—but the question was
whether we should be geinally conceding.
He considered the only way to preserve
this Union,was to observe the laws as we
find them on the statute books, and not
be lying down to eat dirt.
Gen. MILLER rose again in an excited
manner to say that the question was out
Mr. OTT finally withdrew his resolution
and the report was unanimously adopted.
WANTS TO GO INTO THE CUT THROAT
Busizass.--Gan. MILLER 'did not care
for hissing and applause; such things
belonged to a snake and a goose. Be
thought the Union was already gone, and
nothing but Omnipotence could save it.
He denied that the election of Lincoln
was the cause of all the trouble, and re
marked that he could stop all the trouble
if he was constitutionally relieved from
punishment ; that he would go down to
Maine, (we couldn't catch the sentence,)
and from there he would go down to
Brooklyn and MIT HENRY WARD BEECH•
ER'S THROAT I [Cries from all sides,
"put him out," hisses, &c., abundant.]
And then he would serve YANCEY the
same way. [Cries again of "put him

eral was, however, determined to go on,
and he finished about the same as he com
Mr. BRIGGS now moved that the pro
ceedings be properly prepared and sent
to our members of Congress ; which was
Mr. HINELINZ now arose to define his
position. He was as loyal and devoted to
the Union as any one, but considered it
his right to offer such resolutions as be
saw fit, and offered the following :
Resolved, That in the recent able and eloquent
speech of Hon. ANDIUM Jenne; Senator from
Pennopirania IDailv tlettgrapti, fribap 'Afternoon, tletember 1, 1660.
Tennessee,delivered in the Senate of the United
,States a few days since, we recognize the true
doctrine as applicable to the present crisis ; and
hail its author as a bold and honest patriot, and
a worthy representative from the State where
repose the ashes of the immortal Jacirsoat.
Resolved, That the conduct of Jams BucuaN
AN in refusing to sod sufficient aid to the little
band of patriots now occupying the United
Stites Forts at Charleston to defend the honor
of our flag and themselves from annihilation,
meets with the deepest detestation of the peo
ple of Pennsylvania ; and that we call upon
him in the name of humanity and our common
country to re-consider his determination not to
do so at once.
The reading of the resolutions was called
for and they were read amid deafing ap
plause from the audience,
Mx. ALLEMAN remarked that he had
not been fortunate enough to be classed
with the committee of thirty-three, but
he was a citizen of Harrisburg and a
Union man. He thought that every
man had a right to speak and offer reso
lutions at a meeting of this kind, and ex
pressed himself in favor of the resolutions.
Some one moved to lay the resolutions
on the table.
MR. HAMILTON ALRIORB hoped that
the mover of the resolutions, Mr. Hine
line, would withdraw them. He was named
as one of the Vice Presidents, but if these
resolutions should pass he must decline.
He thought the South had been cruelly
Mr. HINELINE said that rather than
have any difficulty he would withdraw the
last resolution. He hesitated, however,
again a little, and then said he wouldn't
withdraw either. [Applause.]
The PRESIDENT. I would rather the
gentleman would withdraw the first. We
have only a short telegraphic report of
Mr.'Johnson's speech and we don't know
what it is.
Mr. ALRICKB. I haven't read it either.
Mr. HINELINE. Look at the incon
sistency. All the speakers have applaud
ed Mr. Johnson's speech, and now when
they are asked to endorse it they back out.
Mr. DAVID FLEMING remarked that he
had become . a participint in the affair un
solicited; that he had not signed the
original call, but had been put on the
committee without consultation. He had,
however, felt it his duty to attend the
meeting of the committee, and hoped
that no other action would be taken. Mr.
Fleming's speech was well timed and elicit•_
ed much applause.
Mr. HINELINE again expressed the
right of any one to offer resolutions.
Some one moved to adjourn, which was
carried. Loud calls were made for a. vote
on the resolutions, and while the audience
was withdrawing the President _ put the
question and declared them lost, and the
Taking it altogether, the meeting was
not of such a character as the leaders de
sired it. The resolutions are such /that
they can be endorsed by all free men of
the North, whilst the speeches of Judge
Pearson, and Messrs. Cunkle, Ott and
Fleming, were in a great part unob
jectionable. Mr. Lamberton was a lit
tle "weaker in the knees" then we anti
cipated, but the speech of Gerd. Miller
was all out of character, and received the
condemnation of all law and order loving
The resolutions offered by Mr. Ott
were altogether unobjectionable, and
might have been adopted, but the fiat had
gone forth that none but the resolutions
reported by the committee should be
adopted. He was consequently cried
down by men who make great pretensions
to "freedom of speech."
"COMMISSIONER" KEITT ! - -We like
that work. Commissioner is good ! Well,
Commissioner Karr; of South Carolina,
will visit the President, next week, for
the purpose of "negotiating" for the sur
render of forts Moultrie and Sumpter.
Mr. KEITT'S mission will be a belligerent
one, and the authorities at Washington
may arrest him if ty choose, as an ene•
my of the countiy. It, however, the
President shall enter into negotiations
with him . , then he and KEITT will both
be subject to arrest. There can be no
doubt, whatever, that if the President
were to take a single step toward barter
ing away, the property of the 'United
States to South Carolina, or to aay nation
or set of men in the world, he would be
liable under the laws punishing high
AMONG the consequences of secession,
there is one, at least, - which will be a
great improvement on the present state of
affairs. If the Southern States form an
independent government, the citizens of
the North can travel through those States,
without danger of personal violence. Be
cause the American Government has al
ways extended to its citizens in foreign
countries that protection which is denied
them at home. And when the South be
comes a different nation, its people will
have to use courtesy towards the citizens
of the United States, or be whipped.
FROM THE FEDERAL CAPITAL.
Correspondence of the Telegraph. I
WASHINGTON, Dec. 19, 1860,
When the Democrats exhibited those symp
toms of decay at Charleston which afterwards
completely annihilated its organization at Bal
timore, the fragments of that party at the
North were rallied under two banners. John
C. Breckinridge was pressed on the honest
masses of the free States as the only living rep
resentative of a pure Democracy, and thousands
of honest men supported the Vice President
with the firm conviction that they were doing
their duty to their God, their country, their
race, and the generation that was rising around
them, and which will soon take their places in
the government of this mighty Republic. The
Southern supporters of Breckenridge declared
that they were contending for the Union, and
to assure their friends at the North that they
were national in their tendencies, every loud
mouthed Southern office-hunter was most pro
lific in protestations that the election of Lincoln
was preferable to the triumph of Denglas.—
What was this declaration but the assurance
that the choice of the American people would
be the illustration of the purity of the fran
chise and the indication of the safety of the
American Union? It was made to reiterate that
boasted Southern conservatism from which the
people of the South, heretofore, derived their
reputation for chivalry. But in the present
acrimonious condition of public feeling at the
South, the banquet to which the Brockinridge
men at the North were invited ? Aro the honest
men at the North who supported John C.
Breckinridge, to be disregarded in every sense,
to gratify their Southern allies and hasten the
destruction of the American Union ? This is
certainly the determination of the leaders of
the Breckinridge faction at the South, because
it is to those leaders that the country is in
debted for the treason which now perils its safe
ty. The Vice President secretly abets and par
ticipates in all the proceedings looking to a
permanent rupture between the North and the
South. He is the presiding genius in every se
cret conclave of Southern conspirators, giv
ing aid to the faltering, comfort to the in
fatuated, and constantly engaged, when thus
employed, in pluming his ambition to be
come either the head and front of a Southern
monarchy or the representative of a military
dictatorship. And it is these base ends and
uses to which modern Democracy has at length
arrived. Let the people in the North note this
fact. Let them remember that when the di
vision of the Democratic party took place, the
friends of Breckinridge claimed in the Conven
tion which nominated film, that he was sup
ported by all the Democratic States in the
Union, and that these identical States, with
John C. Breckinridge, are engaged in the most
determined efforts to destroy this country. If
this is not sufficient to convince the Northern
people of the utter folly of depending on South
ern statesman for a secure policy of government,
then have they become weak in, judgment and
blind in discrimination. It is to such facts as
these, too, that the Republicans can refer in
justification of their firm position, as well as to
encourage them to maintain the principles by
which they so gloriously triumphed at the late
Nothing is so annoying to the agitators who
occupy seats on the administration side of the
House, as the dignified silence and utter in
difference of the Republican representatives.—
This silence is the result of a determination to
yield nothing in the platform which was so
fairly discussed before the American people a
few month's ago, and it is never more dignified,
than when it is exposed to the snarling, snap
ping and explosive resentments of the repre
sentation from the South. Occasionally some
hot-headed F. F. V. unable to restrain his pas
don, unbuckles his anger, and allows it to riot
in a volly of soft impeachments, expletives,
and denunciations of the North, free institu
tions and free-men. On such occasions, the
silence of the Republican side of the House is
mis-construed by the southern spectator, and
attributed to cowardice. Of course the north
ern man and representative understands the
motive which prompts this conduct, and before
long the people will reap the benefit of its ap
plication. Common sense and reason teach
that good was never achieved by retaliation in
acts of vulgarity and bravado. The country
expects other conduct from those sent here to
represent the interests of localities, to harmo
nize these interests, and under a wise national
policy of government promote the prosperity of
all the people. If the Republican party had no,
other object in view than the subduing of a ram
pant minority on the fioorof the House, its work
would indeed be easy and speedily executed.—
But there are other ends for its achievement,
other objects to be sustained and vindicated,
and principles of the most paramount import
ance to the age and the country in which we
live, to be proclaimed and established. It re
quires all the statesmanship in Congress -to
thwart the treason beyond its limits. All the
watchfulness and zeal and indomitable parse
verence on the part of the representative to
check the aggressions and conspiracies of the
executive branch of government. That the
President of the United States is leagued with
the South, and committed by a full understand
ing to all their base purposes, no man of any dis
crimination ever doubted. In this league he con
soles himself that he will not be held responsible
by the excess and contumacy of the South, be
cause the consummation of their treason has
been postponed until after the termination of
his administration. Even now, the massacre
of the little band in Fort Moultrie, South Car
olina, is only postponed to quiet the fears of
the President, who, like all tyrants as they ap
proach their downfall, become the most abject
cowards, shrinking from their own shadows,
and seeking to escape the voice of conscience
and reproach that is constantly shrieking its
condemnation in their ears. Until Abraham
Lincoln is inaugurated, and until he has fairly
set the government once more in motion, by
the enforcement of the provisions of the Con
stitution and the laws of the laud, there will
be no peace. Isominat.
