A POWERFUL SPEECH.
We print this afternoon the speech of John
W. Forney, delivered in the Union Convention
of the 17th inst. The room thus occupied is
most appropriately devoted, and we know that
our readers will thank us in thus early laying
before them this most eloquent and unanswera
ble speech. Col. Forney discusses the issues of
the war in a style at once candid and conclu
sive, leaving no room for captious objection or
dogmatic differences, unless it is by those who
are determined to differ and object to all that
is honest, honorable and loyal. We bespeak
for this speech a wide circulation and most ex

The ardor of the people and the energies of
the authorities are fully awake to the great
emergencies of the crisis, and we now have
the amplest authority to assert that the gnota
be furnished in the shortest possible time.—
From all parts of the State the assurance is
unmistakable, In relation to the awakened en
thusiasm of the people, so that all that is now
needed Is the immediate action of the Gov
ernor, and a conclusion on his part to answer a
great responsibility, to render the enlistment of
troops for new, and to fill up old regiments,
Immediate, prompt and successful.
We must offer a liberal bounty to every sol
dier, whether enlisting in an old or a new regi
ment ; a bounty not to consist of less than fifty
dollars &more, as the Legislature, in its wisdom
and liberality may see fit to authorize. Gover
nor Citrlin mull take the responsibility of paying this
bounty al ones, trusting to the Legislature to sus
tain his motion, , of which there can be no
doubt now that such will be the case. Not
withstanding the Constitution forbids the Gov.
error to use any money not expressly appropri
ated for the purpose used, in this instance the
necessity justifies the innovation. The Legis
lature will be speedily convened in an extra sea
sion, so that there need be no fear that that
body wilhnduse its sanction to such action on
the part of the Governor.
To delay this matter now, may be to defer
some of the greatest and moat important plane
of the federal government. The mere paying
of a bounty to. troops enlisted before the meet
of this extra session of the Legislature would
not amount to a very large sum of money, and
when such an extra session is once organised,
an appropriation could at once be made cov
ering the sum fixed for the entire amount to
be expended in bounties. The sentiment of
the people is in favor of such a course on the
part of the state government, and we trust
that Gov. Curtin will not hesitate a moment in
at once offering this bounty, in anticipation, as
it were, of the notion of the Legislature.
CAMPS OF .INSTRUCTION.
In connection with the camp at this point,
It has been decided to establiah °impala various
other lima:pee throughout the state, for the
purpose4ancouraging enlistments and facili
tating the military organization about to be
initiated. These camps will be located at
Points hereafter to be designated in Luzern°,
Montgomery, Allegheny, Lancaster, - pop, or
Bradford, Waahington and Franklin counties.
The idea in that; scattering a number of camps
is to secur e for the recruits immediate and
comfortable accommodation, and the discipline
necessary fur his effective service in the field.
These camps will also stimulate local pride,
and arouse action which might not otherwise
be developed to its full extent and power.
The camp in Franklin county will be on the
Maryland line, and will form a sort of interme
diate quarters for all the troops from the state,
en route for such camps of the federal armies,
as may be indicated by the fro ure orders of the
T» BRUBLIOANB of Snyder county have
nominated Col. John J. Patterson, of Union
county, es s candidate for Congress, and R.
R. Ritter for Assembly, both subject to the
conferees respectively, who are to fix the can
didates for the Congressional and Legtslative
districts to which Snyder county is attached.
Delivered in the Union Convention, Assembled at
ilanisburyt on the 17th of July, in support of the
Resolutions adopted on that occasion.
The resolutions, Mr. President, which have
just been read, comprise, in brief terms, the
duty of the loyal men of Pennsylvania, and
they will go to the country as an utterance
that must produce healthful consequences.
There are elements in this assemblage which
have never been combined on any former pe
riod of our country's issue. We have here
representatives of the Republican party, the
People's party, the American party, and of
the loyal men of the Democratic party. I
notice that at least twenty counties of the
State have sent Democratic delegates to this
Convention. The heavy gloom which seems
again to have settled upon our unhappy coun
try, has had the effect of extinguishing many
dissensions. Men who have differed radically
in former years now stand together like a band
of brothers. But one motive animates this
splendid organization— that of devotion to
country and determination to maintain the
Union. There is no spectacle, says a great
poet, more inspiring than a brave man strug
gling with danger, and can there be any
spectacle more inspirit* than a great people
struggling with their enemies. The Send,
slavery, which is the beginning of all our
troubles, in tearing itself - from the Republic,
seems determined to tear the vitals of the
Republic, away with it. For however men
may differ, Mr. President, this Is not metely a
struggle for our existence as a free people, but
it is a struggle between liberty and slavery.
All other issues have subsided before this issue.
Slavery in beginning the war, to perpetuate
itself, has laid a strong hand upon our free in
stitutions, and is resolved, failing Wolf, to
bury them in one common ruin. Those only
deny it who themzolves pray for the success' of
the rebellion, and those only believe what I
have said who earnestly pray for the triumph'
of the Union arms. And it is a fact well cal
culated to agonize the soul, that bitter and
dreadful as have been the general suffering in
this extraordinary strife, notwithstanding thou
sands of homes are covered with mourning ;
although torrents of tears are shed over the
freshly heaped graves of those who have fallen
in defence of our flag, yet all these terrible lea
sons produce no impression upon many who
live among and around us. These men see their
country bleeding at every pore, and have no
word of hope or comfort to give to her. While
we, forgetting all old antagonisms and parties,
while we throw off the cloaks of former organ
izations and reveal ourselves only in the garb of
patriotism, they clothe themselves with all the
hatred, and rancor and uncharitableness for
which they have been so distinguished before,
and prepare to strike at the country, if not in
the name at least, in the name of the doctrines
of that candidate for the presidency who less
than two years ago marshaled the hosts of
disunion at the ballot-box, and now leads an
army of traitors in the battle field. [Applause.)
If, Mr. President, slavery is the cause of this
great crusade upon human liberty, its imme
diate agents and ministers confess by all their
acts that they are fully conscious of the truth
of this assertion. They have piusued the fell
purpose which has now ripened into war, with
a persistence which can only be explained by
their close sympathy with the rebellion itself,
and their sincere hatred of the government of
the United States. Calling themselves Demo
crats, they are banded together in favor of
slavery and aristocracy. Let me take a
prominent example of the school. The
old man who lives in neglected solitude
within an hour end a half's ride of the capital
of Pennsylvania. He is now beyond the
Psalmist's age. He entered, the Presidential
i rggn 6 Lith as fair
as ever bad been presented to man. He was
elected upon a distinct and voluntary pledge
that be would give to the people of the un
happy territory of Kansas the right to dispose
of their own affairs in their own way. Had he
been true to this, we should have bad neither
secession or bloodshed. The history of his un
paralleled treachery is written, written sir in
carnage and in shame. It ought Lobe supposed
that now looking over this history, he would
sieze the occasion to expiate his mighty crime
by some manifestation of public penitenoe.—
It might be supposed that now, in his old age,
he would secure the favor and forgiveness of
Heaven by appealing to those he still controls,
to rally to the common defence and to shun his
fatal example. But no, gentlemen, so far from
this the animating soul of the rebellion in the
southern states is not more Jefferson Davis than
the animating soul of the rebellion in the free
states is James Buchanan. He seems to desire
the immortal infamy of dragging our glorious
Union into the dishonored grave he Is himself
soon to fill. Around his own home, as proved
by the convention which assembled in his own
county a few weeks ago, and lay that which
disgraced this hall on the 4th of July,hts former
followers, doubtless under his lead and counsel,
mocked at the perils of the nation and delight in
nothing so much as to embarrass and retard the
operations of the constituted authorities. Is
it possible that thin man and his parasites can
rally any portion of the people of Pennsylva
nia to their standard ? Monuments themselves
of the mercy of the government, permitted to
live in comfort under the flag they toiled to
defame and to dishonor, shall these 'men be
permitted to go on in their work of treason ?
They proclaim that this war is an abolition
war—a war for the emancipation of the slaves
—a war for negro equality—a war- in which
the white man is to be driven out of the field
of labor by the colored race. This is 'the sta
ple of their creed. This is the burden of their ,
cry. Will James Buchanan, or any one of his:
creatures, here or elsewhere, inform me
whether it was the abolitionists that formed the
Lecompton constitution, and forced it upon the
people of Kansas ? Whether it was the aboli
tionists that fabricated the English bill, a mea
sure, even more infamous ? Was it, the aboli
tionists that persecuted and proscribed Walker
and Douglass and Broderick ? Dld they mur
der Broderick? Did they retain in the Buchanan
Cabinet the incarnate traitors who robbed the
Federal Treasury, decimated the army, sent
our navy to distant seas, sacked our arsenals—
sent to southern ports incalculable supplies of
the munitions of war? Was it the abolition
ists, in a word, that prepared the way for the
culmination of war, leaving to Mr. Lincoln a
bankrupt and enfeebled government, compell
ing him to reach the capital of the nation al
most& fugitive and surrounding his inauguration
with all the ceremonials of, and preparations
for internal strife? But, air, apart from the
duty of exposing these impenitent and remorse
less foes, there are other duties which must ''be
discharged, and to which the great organize
don burn to-day, must dedicate itself with stern
and seltsacaificmg patriotism. [Applause.]
The adjournment of Congress leaves to Mr.
Lincoin, those high responsibilities which he
has proven himself so able lo bear. He will
find himself strengthened for still stronger
measures by ample legislation. He can now
throw himself upon the people , and prosecute.
the war with renewed vigor. As your resolutions
so well express it, it is fortunate "that we
have at the helm of public affiiirs one so pru
dent, so upright, temperate and firm." Great
are his trials, and great his labors. It has of
ten been said that the duties of the Presiden
cy were too much in times of peace for any
one man ; several of our Chief filagistrat'es
have fallen under the weight of these duties
But what must his condition be who in the midst
of this remorseless rebellion, must give all his
time and all of his judgement to, the solu
tion of stupendous and novel- compilations.

a blow strike down every great wrong ;
it is possit.le that he may have been mistaken
in' the supposition that the slaveholding trea
son might be indulgently and magnanimously
treated, and that the best way to convince the
rebels was to exhibit to them a willingness of
the Government to offer peace in the midst of
war, and amnesty on condition of prompt sub
mission. But now, that experience has shown
that no moderation can reach the authors of this
great crime, the President will undoubtedly
profit by the lesson. And lam sure that the
voice that goes up from this Convention to-day
will invigorate and inspire him in the vigor
ous policy which is about to be inaugurated ; a
policy which I feel sure will be as stringent and
as determined as the most exacting and enthu
siastic of us could desire. Backed by thepeo
ple, and empowered by law, there will hereafter
be no hesitation in the employment of all
means to put down the rebellion. No more
doubts as to the confiscation of the property of
rebels, no more protection of their houses, and
crops, and goods and chattles. Practical mea
sures will forever dissipate the miserable cry
about negro equality and' negro emancipation.
Wonderful is the advance that has been made
in public sentiment on these questions. Some
of the most distinguished Democrats in Con
gress now take ground in favor of the employ
ment of blacks in the army of the United
States as a measure of imperative wisdom and
necessity. The partisans who roam about
the land ' alarming ignorant people with
pictures of a black exodus from the slave
into free States, who look for riots in the great
cities as a consequence of the competition of
whites ands lacks 4.various fields of labor,
can read their own dotal and the refutation of
their own falsehoods in the ground taken by
genuine Democrats in the National Legislature
on this important issue. Whether they see it
or nut, whether they realize this or not, the
people realize it. The object of this war is not
abolition, but vindication—not abolition of
slavery—but viedieation of theoffended majesty
of the laws. To this end we send our white
men into the field to fight in our armies. To
save them from the privations of the long,
weary march, to relieve them from the heavy
service that wearies and wastes them in the
trenches and on our fortifications, it is proposed
to invoke the aid of the thousands of colored
men who are set free, not by the abolitionists,
but by the slaveholders thempelves. When this
race is fully assured they may render such a
service, and be rewarded for it ; there will be
no further flight into the free towns of the
North and North-west ; but they will gladly
remain under that flag which, while protecting
them, they themselves defend. One other
lesson has been taught within the last year, and
that is, if the most loyal of the white
people are those who are fighting for the
Constitution and the Union, so the most
loyal people of the seceded States are the blacks
themselves. Shall we not use these blacks ?
Shall we not act upon the suggestions of some
of our most gallant and experienced military
men, and save our own brothers by accepting
this ready, eager and honest assistance? What
voter who has lost his relative or his friend by
disease in the army, will not yield to this argu
ment and ask that it may be carried into effect
hereafter. The fact is, gentlemen, this war
may as well be terminated to-day if ? we do not
avail ourselves of this vast resource and of
every other means justified by our own neces
sities and by the usuages of civilized nations.
I know there are some who shrink from the
idea of arming the colored men. Have they
forgotten that they were armed during the
revolutionary war by the direction of General
Washington himself ; that in the bloody battle
of Red Bank, near Philadelphia, It was a regi
ment of Rhode Island negroes under command
of Col.. Ray Greene, who turned the fortunes of
the day and fought to the last around the dead
body of their commander. In the second war
with England, Andrew Jackson enrolled
an - a, and thanked them for their bravery
after the victory was won. Has the colored
race deteriorated since the Revolution,
our second struggle for independence? They
ought to have wonderfully improved, if
philosophers speak the truth or the census
does not lie. The sympathizing gentlemen in
the free states who are in the habit of talking
with negro equality, and charging that as one of
the great ends of the republicans, will hardly
deny that the infusion of the blood of thechiv
airy of the south ought to have greatly improv
ed thd negro race in that quarter. [Laughter.]
Under this influence this race should certainly
be improved, and, according to the doctrines
of oligarchiste, more refined. For, the nearer
they approach the beau ideal of a Southern
gentleman, the better they are fitted to
immitate his martial zeal. As Thaddeus Stevens
once said,the Southern sun has a wonderful effect
in bleaching the negro complexion. [Great
laughter.] Do not be afraid then, gentlemen of
being called abolitionist or the advocate of ne
gro equality, because you demand that your
relatives and friends in the army of the
Union shall be succored, sustained and saved
from disease and death by the stout arms of
the loyal blacks, bond or free in the southern
states. As I have said, the only practical abo
, litionists are the rebels themselves. They have
set more slaves free than- a thousand General
Hunters could have done. Emancipation , like
the rebellion, is their work, not ours. s the
Hon. William M. Evarts said at Albany, in 1860,
as he was advocating Mr. Lincoln: "Gentlemen
of the Democratic party, you say you have a
majority in the country; why don't you unite
then and defeat us at the polls." But the re
bele divided the Democracy then, with the de
' liberate purpose of dividing the country after
wards. Nor do they desire to escape this dou
ble responsibility. They wish to cut loose from
the free States in order to enjoy their institu
tion of slavery alone, 'and it was to save that
institution that induced them to. Prepare for
arid precipitate this war. 'lke Only act of eman
cipation carried by the Republicans is the abo
lition of slavery in the District of Columbia ;
and if the Republicans had not done that, they ; ,
would have deserved the contempt of friend
and foe. They were invoked to it by their own
platform and by the authority , of the great
publicists of the -South. The power existed,'
and they exercised it. What has been the re-
sult ? The emancipation of the slaves in - the
District of Columbia has improved - them. Thus
far the experiment has worked admirably. The
repeal of a series of laws, operating alike upon
free and slave, has made them ambitious to do
well, and they are now more orderly, more
peaceable, and, more thrifty than ever.
So much for several _of -the most difficult
questions growing ont of this war. [Applause.]
The sympathizers with , Secession who call
themselves Democrats undoubtedly desire a
peace with the rebels, and to bring this about
they are industrious in dividing the Northern
people, well knowing that the success of this
plan must consolidate and encourage the trai
tors. No doubt when the uncle of the gentle
man who is now fighting against his country in
the arrayof the South—l mean Francis W.
Hugho - 4". Schuylkill county—was presiding
over thi.ieckinridge Convention on the ,Ithi
of July, :the hope that stirred his heart was
that peace might be accomplished on the well
known platform of himself and his nephew. f
perceive that he is so anxious to effect this ob.
ject that he has taken command of the campaign
himself, and will doubtless make the State ring
with elaborate orations on the basis of the
Breckinridge platform. The object of this
peace is simply to degrade the people" of the
free States, to fill them with factions, to carve
theti domain into provinces, and to make
all their great interests subordinate and obedi
ent to a slavehOlding despdtista., Does anyinen
suppose that such a peace would end the war?
It might, indeed, realize Mr. Willis,un B. Reed:a
grand wheme of,divieloikandseparation emu.-
elated on thel7th of jannary,lB6l, at National'
Hail, while Major Anderson was besieged in
Fort Sumter ; it might make New York a free
city, independent of State and General Govern
ments. With our Pacific empires lost to us;
with the great West seceded, and Pennsylvania
bound, like a captive, to the chariot wheels of
slavery, Mr. Reed and his compatriots won d
exult in the fulfilment of their prophecies and
plans ; but there would be no peace. It would
be one long and stubborn and exterminating
border war— a war of sections—a war making
the South powerful and the North powerless.
What foreign nations would say to such a peace
as thin it requires no Anthony Trollope to pre
I cannot retrain, Mr. President, the expres
sion of my sincere respect of the manner in
which the Republican party of Pennsylvania
has come up to the good work to-day. It was
the duty, and it will prove to be the interests,
of that patty to act with prompt patriotism in
such a crisis. But it is so rare fur men who
have just elected a President, and who dispense
such enormous patronage, to exhibit such mag
nanimity as we have seen;to-day, that the evi
dence of it deserves to be highly commended.
I have seen so much crime and falsehood, such
an utter disregard of solemn oaths and obliga
tions, as the fruits of the so-called Democratic
rule, that when Mr. Lincoln was elected Presi
dent I hailed his triumph with all the more joy
because his hands were clear of these infamies ;
because he was under no covenant with the
slave aristocracy. [Applause]
In the coming campaign,although victory is,
in my opinion, certain and sure, we shall have
a bitter and a reckless foe to put down. Should
we fail, our defeat will be accepted as a dec.
llustion hrfavor of the rebellion The Adinio
istrallon will be arrested in the prosecution of
this holy war, and the sympathizers with
Secession will insist that their machinations
have been triumphant and their treason confirm
ed. ¶he Breckinrldgers expect victory because
they have been so generously treated and so
kindlytolerated. Fulminating their hatred of
the country's cause in public and in private,
corresponding with foreign monarchists who
pray for our downfall, some of those who
had hidden themselves in Paris and London are
quietly returning to their 'homes. As to these
men -we have a right to demand that the
Administration of the Federal Goverment
shall put the strong hand of power. upon them.
The sympathizers with Secession, whether our
elegant friend Mi Haldeman, from this neigh
borhood, whose correspondence with the traitor
emissary,- T. Butler King, has only lately seen
light, whether the editor of a newspaper, who
is only saved from punishment by his own in
significance, or the faithless representative who
looks for re election by the votes of a people he
has deceived, they should be admonished that
there is a limit even to the indulgence and for
bearance of a great Government ; and that
they cannot. at the same time enjoy its protec
tion and intrigue for its overthrow.
He who is false to the flag of his country,
and yet dares to live in the loyal States, should
either be compelled to go to a foreign land, or
be driven with the seal of condemnation on
his brow among the rebels themselves. Let
the administration treat such men as enemies,
and with a firm and consistent policy the war
will terminate victoriously, and the ballot-box
will record an emphatic verdict in favor of the
friends of the Union. [Tremendous applause.]
FREDERICK CITY, MD., HOSPITAL
List of the Siok and Wounded Penn-
FILIDRRICK, July 16, 1882.
EDEMA Tauttaa.ant—Dear Sir . - -I wrote a
few hasty lines yesterday, giving you an ac
count of the number of the sick. and wounded
Tnaval, in _thoo hinanitni .
here hiurft t a no change- sinceo gi iii i t I now
send yon the names and residences of a part of
them. I intend to continue to send you the
names and residences of all the inmates from
your State. I hope you will publish the list
for the benefit of their friends. As your paper
has a wide circulation in Pennsylvania, the
friends of the soldiers who are here will be
anxious to know their situation. All here are
well cared for.
The so-called Democratic meeting held in
Harrisburg on the 4th, has delighted seces
sionists in this State. It gives them great aid
and - comfort. At one point in this State where
your paper and the Patriot of your place arrives
to 6 ether, the distribution of the papers shows
very plainly the estimate placed in them. The
Union men buy the TELEGRA.PR, and the rebels
carry off the Patriot, sod beast of it as an excel
lent sheet. Comment on thia is unnecessary.
The Harrisburg convention was composed of
Breckinridge Democrats. The blind or design
ing _followers of the basest traitor the Union
ever produced. A traitor to his God, his coun
try and his State. He is now attempting to
bring the worst of honors on his native State,
to satisfy his inordinate thirst for power, and
to prevent the majority from governing. It
really requires a large amount of impudent as
surance in his followers in Pennsylvania to ask ,
the honest people to follow them, in giving aid ' s
and comfort to the tortes of the south. In the
fall o, 1860 the Breckinridge men in Pennsyl
vania gave their champion 178,871 votes, and
yet their coadjutors in the south; even in the
border States, turned around and abused Penn
sylvanians in general as alla set of abolitionists
and Black Republicans, unworthy of all trust
because they had not given Breckinridge a
majority in .the State.
Who would have believed that those men
wh o were so basely desertedless than two years
ago by their southern friends, would now be
drumming up recruits for their defamers?
It requires a large amount of brazen assur
ance in the party who carried on the Florida
war, to talk about economy in government ex
penses. Forty million of dollarsto dispossess a
few naked Indians in Florida. The treasury
bankrupt. The credit of the Union down so
low that we could not borrow money at six per
cent., `and President Van Buren had to conven e
Congress to devise waya and means to meet the
current expenses of the year. An economical
party indeed ! But Ineed not carry your read
era back to the Florida war to cite strong cases
of party extravagance, and mismanagement so
great, so bold, so destructive and so unprinci
pled, that the country was robbed and almost
netted by the very party who now lift up their
header and talk of honesty and economy. Roth
L 4. but taking the government out of their
hands lees than two years ago saved the Union
from ptterf ruin. Do they think the people
have fergotten poor James Buchanan—his ad-
Ministration and his associates.
Mr. Editor, to
,call the people of Pennsyl
vania at tide day to join the wretched party
who caused all our country's sorrows and losses,
i s impudence in the extreme, and I hope the
leaders in the attempt will be held ' accountable
to the virtuous people for the ills we are Buf
feting, and any they may hereafter bring on
