THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT,
FOR TILE AMENDMENT OF TILE CONSTITUTION
SOLDIERS, RIGHT TO VOTE.
WEDNESDAY EVENING, NAY 25, 1814.
The Northern Doughfaces Preparing for
a Desperate Demonstration.
There is nothing so ineffably contemptible
as a coward and a poltroon, who, bankrupt in
social reputation, degraded in political status,
and utterly debased in manhood--there is no
being of the biped species more contemptible
than such a creature, seeking in his despera
tion to attract the attention or provoke the
wrath of a great government. There are such
creatures now soiling the intercourse of all
communities—ready with their tongues or
their pens to assail the national honor, traduce
the national valor and defy the national au
thority. In the person of those who control
the columns of the Tory Organ, these charac
teristics are boldly exemplified. Day after
day, either through the columns of that sheet, at
the street corners or over their cups, these men
are unblushingly recording and announcing
their treason to the government—openly pee
claiming their willingness to arm for the over
throw of the national authority. As a speci
men of the tirades of that sheet, we make a
quotation from its issue of this morning. It
is in the shape of a preface to an article from
the Atbany Argus, in which the Democratic
representatives in Congress from New York, are
earnestly 'recommended to leave their seats
and return home. Introducing that article,
the Tory Organ says:
No nation has ever borne so patiently the
wrongs and outrages of Government as the
American nation. In every conceivable way,
since the accession of Abraham Lincoln to
the Presidency, have our rights and liberties
been trampled upon, and yet no general move
ment on the part of the people of the loyal
States to crush the tyrant and end the tyranny
has taken place. The most recent exercise
of arbitrary power on the part of the Admin
istration is the seizure of the Inland Tele
graph line, and the holding of it under mili
tary authority to the great pecuniary injury
of the company. Aud this was all done, be
sides the suppression for a time of two leading
Democratic journals, without the least possi
—lf this is not treason, what is it? In the
face of the acknowledgment of the managers
of the Inland Telegraph Company, that the
action of the Government was controlled 'by
considerations looking to the public safety, the.
Tory Organ seeks to oreate the impression
that the proceedings to discover a bold for
gery, were in the highest degree uncalled for
and tyrannical. Every reading man in the
loyal States, not bound in prejudices and ha
tred of the Government such as control the
clique in charge of the Tory Organ, is always
ready to admit that the New York World and
Journal of Gommerce are the open organs
of the traitor cause, animated by the same
influence Ad paid out of the same fund on
which the Harrisburg clique subsists. Hence
the indignation of the Tory Organ at the ar
rest of these parties. Whenever a traitor is
struck the heart of a tory becomes troubled.
And as the treason of the slavehplders draws
to an end, the rancor and the desperation of
the copperhead Democracy increase, until
they manifest themselves in the reckless false
hoods and abuse of the Government daily
fulminated through the columns of the 2 ory
Organ. Who can doubt the position of such
men, had they lived in the days of the Revo
lution? Had these poltroons lived then, they
would have played the part they are now play
ing—that of the TORY.
It is not presuming ou the duty of those in
authority to ask how long the controllers of
the Tory Organ awl the clique who sustain
that sheet, will to be allowed to persist in their
treason. Sensible men do not desire that the
rascals should be arrested and detained until
they have acquired a reputation as Martyrs
with their party. But all true men earnestly
want this issue brought to a close with the Nortli
ern sympathizers with and alders of treason !
There is no concealment or reticence about
these traitors. They openly avow their deter
mination to oppose the Government, and while
the National and State authorities are mating
the. most herculean efforts to organize forces
for the overthrow of the rebellion, the loaders
of the Copperhead cliques in all the free
States are consolidating their followers to
thwart those efforts, to defeat the army, to dis
grace the authorities, and destroy the Govern
ment. The confessions of these prepara
tions are now the bullying boasts of every
copperhead pot-house politician. The justf
fication of such acts make up the sophistries
and appeals of every copperhead harangue.
In view of these facts, then, does it become
loyal men any longer to delay organization?—
Confronted thus by these sneaking and bla
tant traitors, is it discreet for the Government
longer to delay action? Let no man trust to
the morrow for peace as long as there 'is lin
unrebuked traitor in the land. Let no man
gather his family around his household shrine
and believe in their safety, while there is a
wretch in existence who refuses to support
and uphold the Government. Will the Gov
ernment—will the men in authority take
warning and strike before the Northern traitor
has perfected his plans for rebellion?
A Byrn-8.70mm correspondent has just in
formed us that Capt. James Cook, of the 148th
P. V., who lost his leg in the late battle of the
Wilderness, has since died. He was a native
of Centre county, and among the first to enter
the service for the suppression of the rebellion.
No more sincere or truer man ever lived than
he; and his loss will be as deeply felt by his
companions in arms, who were devoted to
him, as it will be by tho.;e who honored him
as a man. Capt. Cook was formerly engaged
as a compositor in the newspaper room of the
The same cox-respondent also informs us
that Capt. M. Runkle reached Bellefonte yes
terday,having lefta portion of his right arm on
the battle field of Virginia. We were filled with
sincere regret at the reception of this news,
as Runkle's was a right arm which he never
raised in the defence of wrong, and with which
he struck many a sturdy blow for the right.
He has our warmest sympathy in his suffering
—a suffering which fixes his reputation as a
brave man, and entitles him to the lasting
gratitude of his countrymen.
Trouble in the Catholic Church
It is not often that a difference between a
Catholic priest and a superior bishop is al
lowed to go before the public, but the stirring
events and political influences which aro now
agitating all parts of the world, begin to show
their power on the Catholic organization, and
Rome itself exhibits her respect for, if not
her admission of, the right of the great re
forms of the age. The cause of the present
difficulty, while it is of a local character,
still proves the spirit of independence which
is spreading among the people. It seems
that Dr. Moriarty, an eminent Catholic priest
of Philadelphia, had been invited to deliver
alecture for the benefit of a brother priest in
Ireland, who had become pecuniarily ember
rassd while contributing to the relief of the
Irish people. The lecture was designed to be
an appeal to the Fenian brotherhood—to the
Irishmen of Philadelphia—for aid in the di
rection referred to. With this fact before him,
Bishop Wood was not slow in signifying his
disapprobation of the whole affair, forbidding
all Catholics to attend the lecture, and threat
ening those who refused to obey his mandates
with the terror of his power. In reply to
this order, Dr. Moriarty published a severe
card, insisting that the object of the lecture
was a grand one, declaring that lie had a right
to speak to his people, and utterly repudiating
the authority of Bishop Wood in the premi
ses. Accordingly the lecture was delivered,
but Bishop Wood thereafter stripped Dr.
Moriarty of his priestly functions, forbid
ding him, to administer clerical rites in any
part of the:, diocese, with the exception of the
Convent at Chestnut Hill, which is under Dr.
Moriarty's independent control as a member
of the order of St. Augustine, in which he is
only subject to its head at Rome.
• —This makes an open issue between two
of the most eminent priests connected with
the Catholic church in this country, on a sub
ject in relation to which more people than
the Irish of America feel deeply. Bishop
Wood will find it an up-hill business to sup
press that feeling of bitter hostility toward
England which is growing and rankling in the
hearts of native and adopted Americans.
