retary, J. M. Wiestling, Esq. A punctual at
tendance is requested.
3NO. 3. SHOEMAKER, Chairman.
John Walker Jackson at the Court Flonse
It is, of course, well understood that the
Rev. John Walker Jackson will speak at the
Court House this evening, and the fact will.
undoubtedly attract the largest audience ever
assembled in that building. The exalted
Christian character of the man—his thrilling
eloquence, noble patriotism, and unswerving
devotion to the government, have invested
him with an influence almost irresistible.
Hie effort to-night will, no doubt, be one of
great oratorical splendor and argumentative
power. He will speak fur his eountry as only
a man of God can talk. Let no man or wo
man, then, honestly loving their country and
ready to countenance and encourage its de
fenders, fail to hear Rev. J. Walker Jackson
The Result of the Election in intliono—
A Solemn Warning to the People of the
There is something so earnest, so irresisti•
bly patriotic and solemn in the result of the
late election in Indiana, as to render it at
once an appeal and a warning to the people of
all the States. Indiana has always been Dem
ocratic. It has been within the entire control
of the traitors from the hour the rebellion
burst upon the country. In 18G0 it had a
delegation in Congress which acted in har
mony with the leading conspirators; since then
its public men have done all that they could
do to secure the success of the rebellion.
Jesse D. Bright, a Senator from Indiana, was
expelled from the Senate, after a fair trial and
conviction as a traitor. Under the council of
such men as Bright and Dan Voorhees, the
traitors of Indiana were organized and only
needed a signal to do battle for the slave
holders' cause. Indeed, the conspirator?, of
Indiana insisted that they could place that
State in the confederacy just when they
pleasid, but they considered that they Could
do more goad for the Routh by remaining in
the old Union, to-assist there in sapping its
foundations and ruining its supports. In the
midst of this influence, and while thus over
shadowed by treason, the people of Indiana
threw off the yoke of party, and boldly pro.
claimed their adhesion to the Government.
Indiana' perfectly understood what she was
doing, when her masses repudiated the Dem
ocratic leaders. With a wicked conspiracy
arming in her midst—with the fact clear be
fore her people, that the Democratic leaders
Were "playing into the hands" of the rebel,
chiefs, the masses of Indiana suddenly wheeled
into their old paths: and are now as firmly re
solved to stand by the Government, as are the
brave Indianians in the ranks of the army.
The result in Indiana is worth more than
all the speeches or editorials which can be
made or written between this and the elec
tion. It teaches us that when the people un
derstand fully the objects and the terms of
treason, they never hesitate to repudiate trai
tors. It is a warning to Pennsylvania, a warn
ing to all the States, to go and do likewise at
the November election.
"The Home Vote."
Like many of our ootemporaries, we have
permitted ourselves to indulge in an invidious
distinction in the terms by which to distin- .
guish the vote cast at the late State election,
denoing that cast in the State, The Home:
Vote—and that in the Camps, the Soldiers' Vote.
A moment's reflection, exhibits the injustice of
these denominations. It is all a home vote.
Wherever the flag of Pennsylvania floats in
the same breeze beside the Stars and Stripes,
the Pennsylvanian who fights beneath their
folds is at home. So that the elections lately
held in camp by Penn.sylvania soldiers, may
be regarded as having been held at home as
literally as if every voter thereat polled his
ballot at the proper precinct, ward or town
ship within the limits of the Common
wealth. Let us then have no more of this
distinction on the subject of the home and the
soldiers' vote. We consider our brave boys at
home wherever they follow our flag in this
broad Union. We consider the vote of the
army as ranch a home vote as that polled
within the State. Our soldiers, God bless
them, will hereafter be at home everywhere.
The whole broad Union is their home,
and the blessings, the rights, comforts
and honor thereof, their's by a title
made good in perils such as through which
no people have ever passed. We re
peat, then, the trust that our loyal cotempo
series will hereafter avoid this offensive dis
tinction in denoting the vote of the soldiers
and the citizens.
Is' any L-au doubts the complicity of the
Capperhrad party with the organization of
treason in Indiana, let him reflect that the
Grand Commander of the Order in Indiana, a
Copperhead, on trial for treason, made his es
cape, thereby confessing his guilt.
Gen.. ltioChaumar's military career is a puz
zle to many. The truth is, he was' always
making "immediate efforts fora cessation of
hostilities." How -could he'do that and fight
vigorouSly? That accounts for the war being
fidltire'oa his part. ' '
The Effect of the October . en the 'Presi.
The New York Tribun, , says very truly,
that the Unionists of Indiana have settled all
question as to the vote of their State for
President. We considered her, after Ken
tucky, Missouri,' Delaware 'and New Jersey,
the Statrit,mosi likely to cast her vote for Mo
Clellan; and we felt certain (as we now do)
that no fifty Electoral Votes can be given to
the Chicago ticket unless by the aid of this
State. And yet there lives to-day no Ameri
can, qualified to sit on a jary, who dime not
know that she will choose Lincoln electors on
the Bth of next month.
Let us here state a fact that has casually
come to our knowledge, and which is illustra
tive of the late and the pending canvass:
The Unionists of Indian% feeling that they
had a right to the votes of their fellow-citizens
serving their country in the field, and that
they were likely to need them, dispatched,
some two or three weeks since, a gentleinin
of high character to Washington to solicit
furloughs for all the soldiers from that State—
or, if all could not be spared, then for so
many of them as could be. They degred no
partiality—no picking and culling—they wish
ed regiments in full sent home indiscrimi
nately, and the more the better. Their agent
was cordially welcomed, admitted confiden
tially to an inside view of the military situa
tion, and asked whether he could conscien
tiously advise the withdrawal, even for a
week, of even one regiment from the service.
He could not respond affirmatively; he gave
up the quest and went on his way. And our
armies in the field have not been weakened by
a single regiment to stregthen the Union
cause for the recent elections.
,4 few soldiers
have been furloughed, mainly 'from hospitals;
but the Indianians deprived of their votes by .
reason of their absence from home in the Na
tional service, would have given nearer Twen
ty Thousand than Ten Thousand majority for
the Union ticket: Yet Indiana is carried high
and dry'by the Unionists, who have made a
cleaner sweep of the State than any party
ever made before. Their Presidentialcanvass
is virtually.ended, and they can henceforth
help their less fortunate neighbors. • And all
do know that, when Indiana goes this way,
neither Illinois nor any other : State of the
Free West is likely to go the other.
Of Ohio, less need be said, because her:
Unionists have neither .been distrustful not:
distrusted. Nobody imagined that they would
again pile up such J an, enormous majority as
that whereby she last year elected Vallandig
ham to stay in Canada ; but all felt that she
must go as she went last year, though not so
overwhelmingly.. 'Vat, the result has far sur
passed our most sanguine hopes. The aggre
gate popular majority cannot fall below sixty
thousand, when the Soldiers' Vote shall have
been returned, while our, gain of Members of
Congress is certainly tea and may be twelve or
oven In. other words, we have fifteen to seven
teen Unionisis chosen to the next House, in
stead of five (to fourteen) in this; and the four
teen include Pendleton, Long, S. S. Coi., and
other of the fiercest foes of the Administration.
The -victor); is so thorough that Ohio, too, is'
henceforth practically out of the Presidential
Pennsylvania is not ; and yet ails has given
a large Lincoln majority at this electionovhild
the votes of her great Union strongholds—Alle2:.
ghney,Lancaster,Chester, Indiana, Erie,
&c.—are not nearly polled out, because no ..1-!
equate motive for exertion was presented to
many Unionists. Allegheny county will give
ten thousand majority for Lincoln, though she
has now (exclusive pf the soldiers' vote) given
much less; Lancaster is good for 6,000, though
she has noNv,given but 4,000. Philadelphia on
our side, Barks on the other, were well fought;
but Philadelphia was an exception to the, gi=n
eral rule. When the soldiers' votes are all-in
and counted, the,State will be found to have
given not less than 10,000 and probably nearer
20,000, majority for the Union ticket, electing
sixteen to eighteen Union Representatives in
Congress out of twenty-four, which stand .
equally divided in the present Rouse, and
there is no doubt of a decided Union majority
in both branches of the Legislature.' We can
do a great deal better than this in-November ;
but this is enough for the present. "Pennayl
vania has no more idea of voting for.McClellan
than for Jeff. Davis himsof. ' •
Unionistfi. of all the States ! we cap. sweep the
deck if we will! New Jersey is going with us
Maryland is clearly for us; the hardest States
to carry for Lincoln are Kentucky, Delaware'
and Missouri. But Price will soon be skedad
dling from Misouri,vith half the Copperheads
of that State in his train ; Delaware will now
go right; and even Kentucky will yield to the
majestic cnrrrent. Let us resolve to carry
every State not under the heel of Jeff. Davis!
We can if we will. .
. . .
What we Have Done, and What we Have
Gained at the October 'Election.
In Pennsylvania there is, pospeet of a
small Union majority on the - Herne Vote; but
it may be, is most likely to he, _ the other
way. We gain three or four Congressmen,
and the Soldiers' Vote may give us one or two
more. The soldier:3' Vote till make the ma
jority in the State largerthan the 15,000 for
Curtin last year.
Ohio gives, us on the. Home Tote over 40,
000 majority;and shc r tll gain 11 or 12 mem
hers of Congress.
Indiana will give between 15,•000 and 20,000
Union majority, and, - send in 0, and possibly
8 Union Congressmen: ..Colfax is:. re-eleoied
by 1,500 majority.. It is thought that Dan.
Voorhees, the great Copperhead, is defeated,
but it is not certain.
Maryland will doubtless adopt her Free
Constitution, (the vote is contirmed.to-day,)
Baltimore having given st heavy majority
therefor. • •
