Abraham : Lincoln,
Andrew Johnson,
A. Grand Rally for Liberty and Peace
The meeting in the Court House, to-night,
mast and will be one worthy of the great cause
in behalf of which it was called. It is for
justice and the right that we now contend—
for justice againt traitors and right for those
who peril their lives in a death straggle with
treason. To-night we-can send greeting to
Sheridan and his brave boys who are wining
victories, and dispersing bands of rebel as
sassins, as it were, at the very door of every
man's home in Dauphin county. We trust
that every man who kiVes his country, will
turn out to-night and testify to the fact by his
presence at the meeting in the Court House.
Army (elpers ptterfering with Elections
The copperhead organs of the' country
have repeatedly made •the charge that the
officers in the army are arranging certain
plans to interfere with the elections,' and the
same sheets assert that if the interference is
not desisted from, the "Democracy would
either have a free fight or a fair election."—
We are, now fully 'convinced . that the officerS
of the army not only interfere with the elec
tions being and to be held, but the disposi
tion thus to meddle with the civil rights and
franchises of the people begins to crop out
among the privates serving under Uncle
Sam's beautiful banner. •Of late, ono Phil
Sheridan, a Major. General in the national
army, leading several thousand sun-browned,
war-bruised but indomitable veterans, has
carried this interference to an extent
which imperils the prospects of every Dem
ocratie-treason sympathizing aspirant for
office in the country: The outrage will
not and cannot be borne any longer with
patience. It is unconstitutional. It imperils
State rights and .jeopardizes the divine
attributes and the •partriarchal, influence
of the institution of slavery. .Every drop
of rebel blood thus shed by the interfer
ence of army adders with the elections makes
at least a hundred;, votes: for Abe Lincoln.—
Hence the outrage—hence the grievous un
constitutionality of the entire proceedings.
In the name of slavery—sin—the devil—Val
landigham, Bill Bigler; Bill Miller and the
Black Coto, we protest against.this interference
on the part of the brave soldiers grappling
with traitors, in the elections.
The Lseneaster Intelligeneer—. , Please Ex
change." .
Vor a month past, we have been receiving
almost daily issues of a mi.' , candidate for
public favor—the Lancaster ktteiligencer—
marked "please exchange,7 .
,lcow, while we
are always willink to reciprocate the favors of
an exchange, and under no circumstances de
sire to violate the professional courtesies which
tend to relieve the cheerless onerous and . 1
some duties of editorial life, we must in all
candor confess that we cannot exchange with,
the daily Lancaster Intelligencer. We get the
weekly issue of that, sheet, and God, knows
one dose of its slanderous perversions of the
trnth, - ribtdd treason and utter disregard of,
all that is due to freedom and religion, is
sufficient We get the daily Ety'erting Ecipress
from Lancaster—a loyal sheet,--a splendid
newspaper in all its departinents--that is
sufficient for all the uses of an exchange.
Hence, we must respectfully 'decline en ex
change with the Infelifg,ener. - pro; _dose a
week of its treason- sympathy is as mneh as
we can stand. ,
Significant !anneal 'Changes
The copperhead organs of the country are
amusing their readers With romantic accounts
of the great changes which, aip daily working
in the public mind in favor. of Gunboat M'-
Clellan. While the cops are thlis energeti-:
cally engaged, the intelligent voter finds some.:
thing suggestive in the fact that the electoral
ticket for Mr. Lincoln is, ,headed by Edward
Everett, in Massachnsittoi Daniel S. Dickin
son, in New York; Thomas Cunnighani, in
Pennsylvania, and David Tod, in Ohio—all
respectable names, and all of them men who
opposed Mr. 1860, The noreina:
tion of these men was spontaneous—it sprung
from the people and not from the politicians,
and it shows the class of solid, thinking, pat;
riotio men whom they represent are in a 1)60
upon the side of the country and against 31' 7
Clellan. The fact that they are so is one of
the heart-cheering signs of the times.
Msu Nake.a, Chace
Gen. ISTOLannarT occupies one of two posi=
tions: If he accepts .the nomination for the
Presidency on the Chicago pletform, then he
is the Peace candidate. If he accepts the
nomination, and does not intend to carry ork
the principles of the party tendering it, as
enunciated in the'Chicago resolutions, then
he is a dishonest - candidate. Either - , he is a
candidate who believes that "immediate ef
forts should be made for a cessation of hos
tilities," or a candidate not to be trusted::
For and Against.

Democracy and Taxation.
The Northern wing of the Breckinridge
Denuleraby is appealing again to the . people„
for their votes, and, as usual; has become
very solicitous for the welfare of ' the dear
people, especially on the subject of taxation.
, We remember that in the fall of 1862, the De
mocracy flooded the State with documents in
,which they asserted that the national debt at
that time was over three thousand millions of
dollars, when in reality it was less than one
third of that amount. They are now endeavor
ing to alarm the people again upon this subject,
by the same system of deception and misrepre
sentation. •They are promising the dear peo
ple, if they will only vote. their Aicket,; that
this war will be ' stepped, ind their taxes
reduced by their party as soon as they
get into power! And hew` do they propose
to do this ? Why, their platform, which they
adopted 'at Chicago, tells is how it is to be
done. They propose an "immediate armi
stice," and making a peace with the scoun
drels and traitors who are endeavoring to
break up the Government, and destroy our
glorious Union! But do they tell us onwhat
terms they will make peace with the trai-
tors? 7 Not a word on 'that' stibjeBt;for theY
dare not intimate to the people I this, terms on
which the traitors would make., a peace with
us. They know that if they :would dare to
intimate to the people such conditions, they
would be spurned with. contempt by every
loyal man! Now let us see what these South
ern traitors say upon this subject themselves.
Let us see what their conditions of peace will
be if the Democratic treason sympathizers
at the North should get into power, The
Richmond Examiner, in an article on this sub:
jeet some time since, said : "It is useless,
however, for our oppressors to talk of making
a peace with us ; and a union with them again en
any terms that would be efferea by the Lincoln ad
ministration ! We certainly vould accept nom
thing less thqn 'unconditional guarantee
that slavery should never be interfered with
by any act of Congres,sbr the Government in any I
form. That we should have an equal right to
settle in any of the TerrifOries, and no law should
deprive us of the rightto cart* 'cur slaves there.
GOVERNMENT, and all Southern property which
has been confieceted, to be returned or paid for at
its full value at the time of such c onfiscation.'' -
.Now we ask the
. fermers, mechanics and; all
tax Payers of Pennsyl4a . ilia; 'are you prepitkea
for such a dishonorable peace, and on such
ignominibuS terms aethese"? If you are, theil
1 1 vote the Democratic ticket ? Are you prepared
to assume and pay the milli* on millions
of confederate debt whiCh r these scoundrels
and traitors created in their treasonable at
tempt to overthroW the Goverinnerg-; If yon
are prepared to assume the •enOireims taxation
Which would be required to. pay tids vast
debt, then vote the Democratic ticket, for as
surely as that party, gets into 'power, just so
surely will we have tapay,that debt. And yet
this is the party which'hilks to you of making
peace and reducing your taxes. Why did not
this Dentocratic peace +arty, when it'-made
its nominations • and - platform at Chicago
tell us the terms on: 'which it propcibbk to
make a peace with tb:eSe traitors ? Because the
Democracy knew thatif they should even hint
at such terms as are proposed by the rebels,tha t
the people would spurn them with contempt.
There is but one way to make a peace with
these scoundrels; and that is to conquer it; and
thank God, Gaiarr and - SIIEEMAN
DAN f 41.11 01,11 other brave OM " t dein
19rs are
it. When we get a peace 'of that description, it
will be the right kind of peace, without ',any
such ignominious terms as paying thei r r:dclabi,:
catcliing their niggers, and in fact4aing their
slaves, as we have been the last thirty or forty.
A Military Failure as a .Political Trick
When Aunty play was a candidate Or the
Presidency, his brilliant reputation as a states
man, his lohg career of usefulness ; his purity
of character and invincibl6 patriotism, *ere
not proof against a most contemptible,, trans
parent and insignificant lie. The great
statesman was actually defeated by a -mean,
deliberate, infamous and dainnable lie At
that contest, as in the one in which we'are
now involved, the - Democratic leaders:wanted
power in order to increase and perpetuate
the political and social influences of the up
holders of slavery. The South then sought
the realization of what is still a darling object,
with the slave-holding traitors, namely, the
utter prostration of free labor. Henry Clay
was recognized as the great champion ,of the
cause of free labor—the ardent advocate of
its protection from the competition of - ' the
pauper labor of Europe. It w - as . ,necassari to
•break down Mr. Clay, and ruin_ him as a Pro
tective Tariffman. On the veryeve of the Pre
sidential, , election, this was effected so' thor
oughly, that Henry Clay was actually defeated
by the vote of States which .would have been
most benedtted by the policy he advocated.
We all remember the notorious Kane letter,
in which James- K. Polk, a conftrmed free
trader, a mere tool of the conspirators of the
South, was made to appear "abetter Tariff man.
than Henry Clay." That letter elected James
K. Polk--and during his administration was
inaugurated the policy which afterwards im
pelled the conspirators of the South and their
dough-face allies ,of ties North, to break up
and forever destroy free, government on this
continent. , BetWeen'the Polk-Kane letter on
the subject of the Tariff, and the M'Clellan-
Seymour letter:accePtifig - the - nomination of
the Chicago Convention, ',there is that ' fear 7
fal similarity, which at once proves that the.
-latter wawdictated fon,objects as infamous as
elicited the former;itamely,: the disgrace, if
'not' the utter destruction of alltlia;ro4 and
interests of free labor. : POli;r4ane:letter
