THE PLATFORM OF TREASON,
As Prepared by the Leader of the Breck
enridge Party in ,Pennsylvania.
The following is the resolution written by Mr.
F. W. Hughes, Chairman of the Breckenridge
Democratic State Committee, for the considera
tion of the State Democratic Convention. It
is the most lucid and explicit declaration we
have yet read of the opinions of the leaders of
the secession party of Pennsylvania :
Resolved, That Pennsylvania owes her growth
in population, and the increase of capital and
wealth of her citizens, chiefly to the advantages
which the American Union had afforded to the
development of her natural resources ; and that
her glory and paramount interests are identified
with the continuance of that Union.

"She cannot, then, refuse to perceive that she

fragment of a once glorious Union, and rest

proach from the ocean for her great Eastern or her
p.m Western metropolis, except through the water: and
before the forts and guns of a foreign nation, andthus

AFRAID OF FREE SPEECH.
Several of our friends appointed a meeting
for last Friday evening, at a school house in
Jefferson township, this county, but the direc
tors being Breckenridgers, refused our friends
the use of that building. It was next agreed
that the church should be mod; but, behold!
when the time for meeting arrived they refused
to open the house, notwithstanding it had been
promised. Our friends were, however, deter
mined to hold the meeting, and although it
rained hard, a large crowd assembled in front
of the church, and several speeches were deliv
ered. It is scarcely necessary to remark that
this township is full of traitors,
11IE COUNTY TICKET.
We have news of the most valuable charac
ter from every township in the county, receiv
ed during to-day. The indications are that we
will elect our entire ticket by a handsome
majority This result may be entirely traced to
the issues which our opponents themselves have
made. When our nominations , were put for
ward, the only issue thit seemed likely to be
made, was upon the plain test of supporting
the government in its efforts to maintain the
law and vindicate the national authority. But
our opponents were not satisfied with such an
issue. They therefore drew a broad and distinct
line between the people and the government.
They demanded 'that the sources of revenue to
support the government be closed. They .in
slated that the people repudiate the taxes neces
sary to the support of that government. They
invited resistanqc to the law, by denouncing
laws Constitutionally passed. They proclaim
ed the inability of the President to enforce his
authority, by ridiculing his position and
denouncing his acts. A loyal people thus put
to the teat, even if some of them had concluded
from personal preferences to support some of
the men who have been put forth as candidates
by those thus opposing the government, could
not do so now and preserve their attachment to
that government ; In every sense, and with
every man now in the field, the issue is, Shall
thi government stand or fall? The vote to-morrow
will decide this inquiry as effectually as would
a battle if fought on the same day. If such
men as Miller, Heck 8 Co. should succeed, of
course the next blow struck by the rebels would
derive additional force from such a result, and
thus become undoubtedly suc-Itssful.
But let us not forget the fact that the pros
pect is cheering, in our zeal to prove that truth,
justice and the sanctity of our cause bav, all
contributed to the enlargement of that pros
pect. We will succeed, because it is the deal
ay of Freedom to triumph over slavery. •

175 OWN TREACHERY WONT GO DOWN.
The Tory Organ, this morning, endeavors to
be terribly indignant at the charge that the
clique which rallies around that concern has
determined to sacrifice Miller in order that one
of its candidates for the Assembly may succeed.
There never was anything plainer than the
facts which prove the existence of this nice lit
tle plot. The mere defeat of Miller is one of
the fixed facts of the times. That is understood
and admitted by all observing men. But this is
I not wha' is aimed at by the clique. Miller must
not only be defeated ; he must be extinguished.
His ambition and his pretensions have long
been a bore to the prirty to which he belongs
Ha has been in the habit of denouncing very
man who came up for nomination in Democratic
conventions ; and has opposed not a few when
nominated. For instance, he done Watson,
the chairman of the dough-face county com
mittee, a good turn when he was before the peo
ple. He has also been kind, very kind to the
organ, and now comes the day of retribution.
Mark our prediction, Miller will go to bed on
Wednesday night next, a wiser man than he
was when he went to bed last Wednesday night.
He will discover who have been his friends,
and what have been his merits. These dough
faces are so accustomed to plotting against the
country, that this little side plot against their
friends, was essential to the preservation of their
spirits during the campaign.
—Miller, you are sold, and this ends, your
ambition. But then Miller is on-the safe side,
as he is now in possession of three splendidly
paying places, namely:
Clerk of Me Supreme Court of Penny Mania
Solicitor to the City of Harisburg ; and
Attorney for the Pennsylvania Railroad.

The bitterness with which the Tory Organ
assails this gentleman is the beet proof we can
i,ffer to the people of hie integrity, his fitness
for the position for which he was so enthusias
tically renominated, and the purity and patriot
ism of the principles which have ever governed
his actions. Hereafter, when the Tory Organ
abuses a man, that moment will his character
rise in public estimation, and in an opposite di
rection, when that sheet praises, will the char

Mr. Herr will be re-elected District Attorney
because he is the ablest man that has filled that
position since the office was made elective by

render him at once au ornament to hie profes

of the onerous duties incumbent on the District
Attorney, has never been questioned—his im
partiality sad industry winning for him the
confidence of judges and juries, as well as the
respect of opposing parties in court. Sucit

jealousy of a band of besotted newspaper
pennopluania rnthtp t &graph, Itlonbag afternoon, Ottoba 13, 1862
IT DEPENDS 13rPoN TEE DECISION AT THE BALLOT-BOX
Whatever politicians may proclaim, or whai,
ever may be urged to the contrary by thosewho
are prowling over the country, purposely to
mislead and deceive the people, we maintain
that upon the result of the election to-morrow,
depends the reality as to whether we have a
country —whether the people have homes, bu
siness, lands, tenements and enterprises which
are 'safe from 'traitor' destruction: It is not
merely a contest between rival individuals,
such rt 9 made election days famous in times
past, and forgotten as soon as the polls closed.
It is not just the race between the candidates
of opposing parties, upon the election of either
of whom depends the distribution of patr . onage,
in the way of fat places or profitable sinecures.
All such considerations are swallowed up in a
higher and a nobler issue—in issue involving
the eternal safety of the country. It is a con
test entirely for the countrY. Upon its result
depends the prosperity of the government. If
the men who repreeent that government are
defeated, of course just so far that government
becomes crippled. It will in that defeat lose
prestige among the people: The army will
deem it useless to risk their lives for that which
the people at home will not support by their
votes. Our defences will thus of course become
literally destroyed, and then indeed will come
an invasion that will extend further north than
the defenceless towns on the border. It will
be an invasion to the capital of the common
wealth, with a welcome from those in our own
midst who now defend the rebel cause, eo far
as that defence can be made by attacks on the
men who are struggling nobly to uphold and
sustain the national government.
The question, then, for decision tomorrow
is, whether we have a Government. If we in
tend to support the Government, it becomes
our duty to stand by it at the ballot-box. If
we intend to desert it, no better opportunity
will ever be afforded, than will be presented to
morrow. No better or surer influence for its
destruction can be invoked than by voting for
such men as Miller, Heck, lc. Such men as
these are not only able, but willing to complete
that destruction. Heck showed his capacity
for treason when he refused to vote an appropri
ation to arm the state in the hour of its greatest
danger—while Miller only wants the oppor
tunity-to strike the arms from the hands of
those who are now in the field for tire defence
of the government, by the refusal of appropria
tion for their support and subsistence.
The people understand and appreciate the
magnitude of the crisis, and the importance of
the issue. That issue involves all that we are
as a nation. If we fail to-morrow, of course
failure and disgrace become the heritage of the
nation for all time. The victory which pro
nounces the defeat of loyal men at the polls, will
also mark the triumph of traitors in the field.
Tht decision which places Pennsylvanians in
opposition to the state and national govern
ment, will be the signal for transferring the war
to the Keystone State. Then will come, in
deed, desolation and famine, outrage and op
pression. And yet, all this can be averted by
a sinkle vote—by the patriotic performance of
a duty which the conscience of every just man
will approve. That duty consists , of supporting
the loyal Union ticket now before the people,
at the head of which are Coalman and Ross.
I One of the themes which the Tory Organ has
I almost exhausted, is that which relates to the
legislative action of the Federal Congress, in
the enactment of laws designed to strengthen
the bands of the President and add vigor to the
I army, in the efforts of both to crush the rebel
lion. The American Congress, at its last ses
sion, did not pass a single law which the Tory
Organ has not bitterly denounced and opposed.
I It was . the only mode left of assisting rebellion.
Its plans to embarrass enlistment were broken
up and destroyed by the Provost Marshal, and
therefore it was compelled to be content with
such abuse of the government as would enable
it to render what service there was in such a
course, to its southern allies. While not
only the Tory Organ in this city, but such of
the press of the state as herald and advocate
its peculiar tpye of treason, were employed in
thus slandering the government, perverting
just legislation, and embarrassing those 'who
were and are strenuously engaged in crushing
rebellion, neither onrsettes or any of those who
read the organ, have ever noticed s single line
in its columns denunciatory of the acts passed
by the rebel Congress. For instance, the fol
lowing synopsis of the tax bill passed by that
body, has been going the rounds of the loyal
press, and yet not a word in its denunciation
has yet appeared in the Tory Organ :
" That on the first day of January, 1863,
there Shall be levied and assessed on each per
s.in resident in the Confederate States, for the
support of the Government and the defence of
the country * the following tax, to wit : One
fifth the value of all the wheat, corn, rice, rye,
oats, potatoes, hemp, flax, peas, beans, barley,
hay, wool, rosin, tar, pitch, turpentine ' cotton,
sugar, molasses and tobacco,' produced by them
in those states during the previous caleuder
year ; also, one fifth of the value of the increase
for the previous cakader year of the horses,
asses, cattle, sheep and swine; and also, one
fifth of the profits made in the preceding calen
der year by the feeding of swine, sheep, cattle,
or mules ; also, one-fifth of each person's yearly
income for the precedent calendar year, from
all sources whatsoever, except the sources here
inbefore described; and except from the interest
on Confederate bonds, certificates, or treasury
notes ; provided, that said tax so levied and is.;
ceased be due and payable •on the first day of
April, 1863 ; Provided further, that foreigners
resident within the Confederate States shall not
be required to pay, except from the aforesaid
articles produced by or for them, or from in
comes cr profits derived from business conduct
ed by them in those States ; nor shall any tax
be levied upun the products of residents where
the total value of such products, during said
year, is less than $6OO ; nor shall any tax be
levied upon the income of residents where the
total value of such income is less than $500."
It must be remembered that the terms of this
bill are not designed seerely for the rebel states,
hut the tax Militia fixed on the rebel, will abe,
be charged against the loyal states. This charge
is based on a : purpose of the rebels to conquer
the whole country ;and it is thiefact which de_

county would do well to think of these facts,

the Tory Org to, because it was on the advice
and information derived from such sheets, that

A Mend who has had several opportunities
to hear the speeches of William H. 'Miler, the
dough-face candidate for Congress in this dis
trict, delivered in various parts of the district,
declares that in no single. word, sentence or
paragraph . , did he assert that the rebers were
wrong.. He (Miller) !lever alluded to the hor
injustice of seceadon, or to the wrongs of
rebellion, nor to the atrocities of those who were
waging an unholy war aealitat the Government.
All this was stippresied, fot the purpoee of ridi
culing the administration of Abrahern Lincoln,
and denouncing the acts of the-144, session of
Congress. The confiscatiiin of rebel property
was an outrage in his opinion, too terrible for
Christian men tp behold without resistance.—
ThoYe whb:opposed Slavery ere• fiends incar
nate. Those who proposed to put down rebel
lion by the foroe of arms, and coinpel the slave
holders to pay the expense of a war which they
inaugurated, were the real violators of the Con
stitution. He (Miller) could end the war with
a dash of his pen ! ,What that dash would be,
Miller did not vouchsafe toll:tram his hearers ;
but it is safe toinfer that it implied the repeal
of every la* affecting slavery, and the full recog
nition of the right of those who are is rebellion
to rule or ruin. the Union. Is such a man fit to
represent a free people?

EXACITLY So.—A visitor to the Antietam bat
tle-field said that one of the rebels confidentially
boasted that "our friends will beat you in Penn

The rebels regard the Democratic cry for the

FALSE °REPORTS CONTRADICTED.
A REPORT has been circulated that the Bat
t". talion of Heavy Artillery, now recruiting
ander Major Joseph Roberts for Fortress Mon
roe, is not to be permanently established at
that post. As such a report is circulated to
injure that battalion, I take the opportunity to
deny said statement. The government - wish
ing to provide for further contingencies, has
determined to put our seaboard in a state of
defence. Fort Monroe being the key to our Cap
ital, becomes of the first interest, and a batta
lion of picked men are earnestly called for by
the War Department to garrison that place.
Said men will be enlisted for that and no other
purpose ; nor will they be liable to be sent out
to do any other duty.
Of the 14th Congressional District,
WHEREAS THEO. FENN had
