FORTY-FOUR COLUMNS OF READING MAT
TER EACH WEEK
AT THE pow PRICE OF ONE DOLLAR
AND FIFTY CENTS 1,
SUBSCRIBED FON IN CLUBS OP NOT LESS
THAN TEN COPIES TO ONE ADDRESS!
We have been compelled to raise the club sulbscription
price to one dollar and fifty cents in order to save our
selves from actual loss. Paper has risen; including
taxes, about twenty-dee per cent., and is still rising;
and when we tell our Democratic friends, candidly, that
we can no longer afford to sell the Weekly PATitioIhAND
llniou at one dollar a year, and meet add fifty cents or
stop the publication, we trust they will appreciate oar
position, and, 'indeed of withdrawing their subscrip
tions, go to work with a will to increase our list in every
county in the State. We have endeavored, and shall
continue our efforts § ki make the paper useful as a party
organ, and welcome as a news messenger to every fam
ily. We flatter ourselves that it has not been without
some influence in producing the glorious revolution in
the politics of the State achieved at the late election;
and if fearlessness in the discharge of duty, fidelity to
the principles of the party, and an anxious desire to pro
mote its interests, with some experience and a moderate
degree of ability, can be made serviceable hereafter, the
Weekly PATRIOT Ann Union will not be lees useful to
the party or less welcome to the family circle in the fu
ture than it has been in the put. We confidently look
for increased encouragement in this great enterprise,
•and.appeal to every influential Democrat in the State to
lend us hie aid in running our supscription list up to
twenty or thirty thousand. The expense to each
vidnal is trifling, the benefit to the party may be great.
Believing that the Democracy of the State feel the ne
cessity of sustaining a fearless central organ, we make
this appeal to them for assistance with the fullest confi
dence of mecum.
The same reasons which induce us to raise the price
of the Weekly, operate in 'regard to the Daily - paper, the
price ogwhich is also increased. Theadditional et:mitt°
each subscriber will be butlritlingi and, while we can
not persuade ourselves that the change uecessarilymade
will result in any diminution of Our daily cirtulatiOn,
yet, were we certain that ouch would be the come
queues, we should still be compelled to make it, or cut
fer a ruinous loss. Under these circumstancei we must
thriw ourselves upon the generoeliy, or, rstber;the
Justice of the public, and Illbido their verdict, whatever
it may be.
The period for which many of our subscribers have
paid for their paper being on the eve of expiring,'we
take the liberty of issuing this notice, reminding them
of the same, in order that they may
RENEW THEIR CLUBS.
We shall also take it as an especial favor if our present
subscribers will urge upon their neighbors the fact that
the PATRIOT AND UNION is the only Democratic paper
printed in Harrisburg, and considering the large amount
of reading muter, embracing all the current news of
the day, and
from everywhere up to the moment the paper goes to
press, political, miscellaneous, general and local news
market reports, is decidedly the
CHEAPEST NEWSPAPER PUBLISHED IN
There is scarcely s village or town In the State in
which a club cannot be raised if the proper exertion be
made, and surely there are few places in whioll one or
more energetic men cannot be found who are in favor of
the dissemination of sound Democratic doctrine*, who
would be willing to make the effort to *raise a club.

0. BARRZTT & 00., Harrisburg, Ps
N. 8..-The following law, passed by Conran in 1860,
defines the duty of Postmasters in relation to the de
livery of newspapers to club subscribers:
(Bee Lsttle, Breton ¢ Co.'s'sditian of the Laws of 1860,
page 38, chapter 131, section 1.)
"Prorided, however, that where packages of newspa
pers or periodicals are received at any post office directed
to one address, cud the names of the islttb subscribers to
which they belong, with the postage for a quarter in ad
vance, shall be banded to the postmaster, he 'hall de
liver the same to their respective owners."
To enable the Postmaster to comply with this regula
tion, it will be necessary that be be furnished with the
list of names composing the club, and paid a quarter's
(or year's) postage in advance. The uniferm courtesy
of Postmasters, affords the assurance that they will
cheerfuliyaccommoaate club subscribers, and the latter
should take care that the postage, which is but a trifle
in each case, bepaid in advance. Send on the tubs.

HON. CHARLES L. LAMBERTON,
IN THE SENATE OF PZNNBYLVAN/A,
• , March 6th, 1868,
Qn the amendment, inviting General 31 , 01ellan to visit
the Capital, to the Joint Resolution tendering theme
of the Renate Chamber to Xx•Governoruicstipson apd •
Mr. &mule: Thesiriginal resolution offered
by the Senator from Indiana, (Mr. White,) in-.
forme the Senate that the so-called Governor
of Tennessee, Andrew Johnson, and an ex-
Governor of Indiana, 4, are about to visit Ear- .
pisburg to address the people on the great
questions of the day, and asks that the use of
the Senate Chamber be tendered them for this
The amendment I have offered proposes that
the use of this hall be also tendered to that
distinguished son of Pennsylvania, Major Gen
eral George B. M'Clellan, in which to receive
his friends, and that he be invited to visit the
State Capital for that purpose.
The discussion, under the permission of the
Chair, has taken a wide range, including both
the policy of the government and the duty of
party in the present emergency of the country;
in the course of which those on this side of
the chamber, representing here the great con
stitutional and Union:loving party of the na
tion, have heard it and themselves traduced
and Charged with want of fealty to the govern
ment. We have borne this with entire equa
nimity; but gentlemen may aswell understand
first as last, that fierce invective, ungentle
manly epithet and unsenatorial vituperation
will not affect those with whom I act in the
utterance of our sentiments or the discharge
of our duty. "
It will be well, sir, for this Senate to remern-'
her and the country to know, that the original
resoletion comes from that party which, one
year ago, with a Cheever in yonder hall of the
Holise of Representatives, desecrated the chair
in *hitch John Hancock signed the charter of
our liberties, .and a few weekslater extended
the use of this hall to Wendell Phillips, in
which to utter his treason against the Consti
tution, and to make the unblushing avowal
that for a quarter of a' century he bad been en
deavoring to dissever the Union. The carnage
of the battle-field, the merma' filling the
land, and the near bankruptcy of the nation,
tell how well he has succeeded in his treason
Before speaking to the amendment, let me
notice some remarks that have fallen from
Senators upon the other side. We are invoked
by the Senator from Allegheny, (Mr. Penney,)
and the Senator from Northumberland, (Mr.
Bound,) to forget party. This is a strange re
quest to come from that quarter now. Do they
not recollect that but a few nights ghee, upon
a petty, local bill of the Senator from Luzerne
(Mr. Starke) the trumpet call of party was
sounded by the Senator from Lancaster, (Mr.
Hiestand,) and all upon that side of the ahem
ber with one accord responded to the summons?
Do they not know that party was forgotten
until oppression, ostracism and threatened
subversion . of liberty restored it ? If it is per
nicious in your eyes, you are' to blame for it.
We stand acquitted. Let us but remember
when the cannon of the traitor and rebel thun
dered against Sumpter, their echoes awakened
in all the loyal States the patriotic determina
tion of the whole people to stand resolutely by
the integrity of the governukent.
Then no one Was for party and every one
for State." Party organization was forgotten,
save in a noble enrulation as to which should be
most largely represented in the field. Then
the objects of the war were well defined in the
resolutions of Congress, the messages of the
President and in the utterances of those who
spoke by authority. They were not for stain
gation, but for the restoration of the Union—not
for trampling under foot eoustitutional liberty,
but for the maintenance of the laws. These
objects met the approval of the people. For
them they were willing to struggle and willing
to die. Then our army was recruited by vol-
untary enlistment until a million of volunteer
soldiers were in the field. Now the unwilling
conscript must be torn from his family to fill
up the decimated ranks. True he may be le
gally and rightfully exempt, but he must sur
render the little homestead ybich the laws of
the State have heretofore saved to his family.
Mr. Speaker, the people have suffered every
thing in this contest. But terrible as their
sacrifices have been, they have been none too
great if the object and the result of this fra
tricidal war is the perpetuation of the Union
and the Constitution unimpaired. For these
ends, the people have been and will be united.
Because, sir—l say it advisedly—the great aim
of the party with which I am connected is the
RESTORATION OF THE UNION UNDER THE CON
STITUTION. This they mean to accomplish. If
war fails to do it, then we will follow the ex
ample of the fathers of the Republic, and by
honorable compromise adjust the conflicting
interests of sections. But if the war is not
to be prosecuted for this high and holy pur
pose, but simply for the miserable one of Ab
olition—if the life of the white man is only a
bleeding offering for the liberty of the negro—
then, eir, I say it boldly that such a war is a
horrid butchery. We are loyal to the govern
ment, and faithful to the Constitution, but we
never can countenance, those usurpations of
this administration which.are destroying both.
Whilst the war is being carried on, let it be
conducted and let the gountry be governed in
accordance with law, military and civil. Be
cause treason in arms missile the government,
the liberties of thorloyal man ought not there
fore to be permitted to perish And against
thee° encroacbwentb of power and this mal
administration we protest as becomes freemen.
For this we have been denounced ; opprobri
ous names have been sought to be fastened on
us. Names, sir, will not deter us from the
discharge of duty. Gentlemen should remem
ber that names given in derision sometimes
became the sign by which the derided conquer.
• It is told in the history of the Netherlands
that the patriots struggling for the preserva
tion of their rights as freemen against Spanish•
tyranny, were stigmatized as "beggars," be
cause of their humbleness and poverty. • The
oppressors were the lordly possessors of power,
the oppressed were the brave and lowly. But
the latter assumed the name of "beggar," so
gratuitously bestowed, and under the lead of
William of Orange, made that name of intend
ed obloquy, on many a blood-stained deck, on
many a well-fought field, and around many a
beleagnred city, a joy to the patriot and a ter
ror to the foe. Senators may yet learn that
history sometimes repeats itself.
But, sir, to the amendment offered. It is
evident from the opposition to it, and the fierce
manner in which the eminent soldier therein

it is refused to one whom the people honor, not
extend it, so far as my action is concerned, to a
mere dependant of power. We are told, sir,
that Andrew Johnson and Joseph A. Wright
are about to visit the Capital, to address the
people on the great issues of the day. By
whose invitation do they come? Of this man
Wright I have but little knowledge, save that
whilst a Democrat he was as fierce in his de
nuno iation of Abolitionism as he is 'now loud
in its praise. For Andrew Johnson I have re
spect ; I have admired his many sterling quali
ties, which elevated him from obscurity to
prominenoe, and caused him to triumph over
"Those twin jailors of the human mind :
Low birth and an iron fortune'
But above all have I admired, amidst his suf
ferings, his courageous adhesion to the Union
and the Constitution. But then he was Andrew
Johnson, the Democrat. Now, however, he
has deserted his post of duty in Tenneske ; he
is stultifying hie past record ; he has become a
pensioner ,on power, and the defender of the
usurpations of Abraham Lincoln ; and he ap
pears among us to-day as an itinerant peddler
of Abolitionism. Who champions him here?
and who are his especial keepers? They are
the men who voted this hell to Wendell Phil
lips. ."I fear the Greeks, though they come
bearing presents." Indeed, sir, I have before
me the published proceedings of a large Repub
lican meeting recently held at Indianapolis.
which Was addressed by these men, where they
lent encouragement, by their presence, if not
their words, to most pestilent heresies—to the
advocacy of the equality of raess--.-of the de
struction of the freedom of the press and of
speeoh,and of the Presidential right to suspend
the habeas corpus. Mr. Speaker, if those are
the objects in favor of which they desire to ad
dress the people, I am ready here and now to
make the issue against them. By no vote of
mine can I, even by implication, give counte
nance to any such usurpation.
Now. sir, I want to see this rebellion put
down, and if there be any traitors in our midst
to have them arrested and punished. But let
it be done in accordance with law. Its supre
macy is essential to the safety of every citizen.
We do not want , to see law making edicts of
the President sweep away those rights of hu
man freedom to maintain which mankind has
struggled for ages—rights which the mailed
barons wrung from King John at Runnymede,
and which their decendante again extorted from
the house of Stuart—rights for which Alget:non
Sidney suffered on the scaffold and John. Elliott
died in priaoh—lights to preserve which our
ancestry ,deserted the habitations of the old
world to found freedom in the new—rights
which (violated in a simple preamble) the men
of the Revolution struggled through seven
years of warfare to secure. Rights thus Sacred
ly maintained, we, sir, do not mean to sur
render without resistance. Congress alone
has the power to suspend this writ of personal
liberty, and then only in ease of "rebellion
and invasion," and "when the ptiblio safety
may require it." No one pretends that Penn
sylvania is insurrectionary, or that the public
safety requires it. Yet the writ is suspended
here. t But eventhat power in Congress does
not give the authority to arrest without due
warrant of law. It only gives the privilege of
suspending inquiry into the cause of detention.
Neither Congress nor the President has the
right to take away the trial by jury and estab
lish military commissions in lien thereof, or to
deprive any citizen "of life, liberty or pro
perty, without 'lnc process of .law." nor to
abolish the freedom of speech or of the press.
These are powers reserved to the ". States and
the people ;" and the exercise of them under
pretexts of " military power " or a military
necessity " in loyal States is usurpation.—
That great statesman of the early days of the
Republioi. Eaward Livingston, in presenting
the petitions of fifteen thousand citizens to
Congress for the repeal of . the alien and sedi
tion laws, uttered a great truth when he stated
that "Congress and*the President when in the
exercise of their delegated powers, were but
our servants ~ when they exceeded those' pow
ere they become our tyrants."
All these encroachments of power, subver
sive of liberty,4 would resist inside of con
stitutional harriers. I would invoke, through
free speech, a free press and a free ballot, the
majesty of the people in favor of constitutional
right. Whilst these are left to us intact, they
ought to be our only remedy to restore the
war to itsiegitimate purpose, and to displace
those who, by corruption and fanaticism, have
brought the country to the verge of ruin—
Mr. LOWRY. I desire to make a remark..
The SPEAKER, pro tem., [Mr. Jonnson in
the chair.] Will the Senator from Clarion al
low himself to be interrupted'?
Mr. LOWRY. The remark is, that the Sena
tor from Clarion mistakes the place whore he
stands, and thinks that he is speaking in Rich
mond instead of in Pennsylvania.
Mr. LAMBERTON.. Mr. Speaker, we have
listened to denunciations from that quarter be
fore. We have been called "copperheads" and
"traitors" and have .borne it patiently; and
now that Senator •again insinuates disloyalty
against me. ,Sir, I can tell him that imputa
tions upon my loyalty have no terrors for me,
when they come from one who once offered a
premium on murder.
Mr. LOWRY. Will the Senator state to what
he makes allusion when he says I offered a
premium on murder ? I pronounce him a fal
Mr. LA.MBERTON. I hurl back the epithet
of that Senator, and shall repeat and endeavor
to prove that he did offer a premium on mur
der. And the Senator can resent it either here
or elsewhere, as he may see proper.
Mr. LOWRY. I give the Senator notice—
The SPEAKER, (resuming the chair.) There
must be no personalities in the Senate.
Mr. LOWRY. I give the Senator notice—
The SPEAKER. The Senator will not make
any personal remarks.
Mr. LOWRY. I ask' the Senator from Cla
rion to wait one moment. • ask the Senator
Wherein I have offered a premium on murder?
Mr. LAMBERTON. I will state, sir.
Mr. LOWRY: I now give him notice that
inasmuch, as he has thrown out what he has, I
shall hold him to it before he leaves this ball.
Mr. LAMBERTON.' I shall not shirk the
issue, and winnow state, and the Senator from
Erie dare not deny it, th at in a public letter or
speech, during the present rebellion, he stated
that, had he the power, he would offer one
hundred and sixty acres of land to every negro
who would bring his master's scalp to him.
Am I correct?
Mr. LOWRY. I rise to explain.
The SPEAKER. The gentleman will confine
his remarks to a mere explanation.
Mr. LOFRY. I rise merely for that purpose.
In a speed delivered at the outbreak of this
hell-horn and, hell-bound, rebellion, I uttered
some great truths which caused wicked men to
hound me at home and persecute me in strange
cities. The crime which I then committed,
and for which two years nearly after its utter
ance, I am called to answer in the presence of
the Senate and the country as a murderer, was
this : I said that slavery was the powder, the
ball and the bullion of this rebellion. I eon
tended that every negro we took from the
enemy's ranks, or from his fields, and placed
in our own, we saved two fair weeping moth
ers',:white sons. I believed that every wench

we took within our lines we captured a cannon
from the slave-holders' rebellion, and that for
every negro child we unchained we captured a
hogshead of saltpeter. I said then, and I be
lieve now, that the destruction of slavery is
the only cure for the rebellion, that all other
soothing nostrums were quack medicines. I
proclaimed it in bold words to a pante who
appreciated it, and to men in high power, who
would not, that were I commander-in-chief of
the army and navy, I would inscribe upon every
banner that I sent into disloyal ports and into
disloyal States the inspiring and soul-stirring
words universal emancipation. Ap

I said that I would arm the negro—that I Would
place him in the front of battle—and that I
would invite his rebel master with his stolen
arms to shoot his stolen ammunition into hie
stolen property at 'the rate of a thousand dol
lars a shot. I said further that were I com
mander-in-chief, by virtue of the war power
and in obedience to the customs of civilised
nations and in aeeordance with the laws of self
preservation, ',would confiscate every rebel's
property, whether upon two lege or four, and
that I would give to the slave who would bring
me his master'e disloyal scalp one hundred and
sixty sores of his master's plantation ; nor
would Ibe at all exacting as to where the
scalp was taken oill; so that it was at some point
between the bottom of the cam and the top of
the loins. This; sir, was my language long
before Fremont hadisseed his immortal proc
lamation. .The logic of events is sanctifying
daily these anointed truths. Father forgive

Mr. MOWRY. I said the slave of every dis

to misrepresent me. •
The SPEAXER. The Senator froM plarion
will see that the Senator from Erierexplains his
remarks to apply to disloyal masters.
Mr. IaIsMBEEVIDN. Very well, sir, but
desire to ask the Senator from brie one ques
tion. •If a slave murders and scalps his master,
or if a slave insurrection takes place,, .I would
like him to state whether the teachings of his
tory do , not inform us that the infuriated pas--
sions-et the negro,ouce aroused,. will cause hint
to bring. along with the dripping scalp of the
master, the scalps of the innocent mistress and ,

to which I referred I made use of the remark
that the South would bring upon itself the
scenes of St. 3)comingo, and that the whole•

Mr. LAMBERTON. Now, sir, I assert that
this atrocious doctrine of inciting the slave to
destroy his master, and to imitate the mend
lessierocity of the Indian savage in scalping
tha dead, is not legitimate warfare, neither
recognized by the laws of God or' man. It is
simply murder, and the man Who invites it, be
he President or Senator, by hope of gain, does
in truth offer a premium , an murder.
Mr. Speaker, this is most infamous doctrine,
To add to the calamities of civil war, a war of
races, the terrors of a servile insurrection, to
be intensified with the scalping knife of the.
savage. This we are told is in accordance
with "the customs of civilized nations." is
the civilization of the Sioux, or the Caneinohe,
who violatecthe living, mutilates the Gad and
brains the babe before the eyes of its mother.
But even the merciless Indian does not propose
to let out his inhuman warfare by contract.
It was reserved for this day and generation..
San Domingo is to be repeated with accumu
lated horrors. The Senator tells us he would
have the Southern master fire into " his stolen
property." He thus recognises property in
the slave under the laws, and applauds the
stealing of it. Is not that adding robbery to
murder ? And yet we are told that these are
truths and that the login of events is sanctify..
ing them. And those who denounce them as
error ,are to be consoled with &pious invooniies
for forgiveness, because they know not what
they do. The Senator from Erie must have
forgotten that . it is only the prayers of the
righteous that avail mush.
The Senator tells us that he proclaimed these
sentiments in bold words to a people who .ap
precisted them and to men in high power who.
would not. I know not why it was that in the -
Senator's district, strongly Republican as it is,
men had to be conscripted by the thousands
to prosecute the war; whilst in the district I
represent, where the population is loyal and
Democratic, and where the object of the war
was believed to be for the supremacy of law,
not two hundred were drafted. But the Sena
tor is fortunate, at least so far as the success of
his own convictions are concerned. For the
stone that the builders rejected has become the
head of the corner of the Abolition policy
adopted by this administration. They seek to
maintainn the Constitution and Union by de
stroying them; we seek to preserve and restore
them aa our fathers bequeathed them to 118.—
The one asks for allies amongst the blacks of
the South. We ask the hardy and loyal Union
ists of the South to aid us in overturning this
infamous rebellion and restoring the Union.
Bat, Mr. Speaker. to return to the question
under discussion before I was interrupted by
the Senator from Erie. If the use of this hall
is to be granted to ex-Governore Johnson and
Wright, with their objectionable position as I
have shown it, let us also extend it to a man
son of our own State, the distinguished M'Clel
lan. Though persecuted, he has triumphed,
and now stands above reproach. Por this pur
pose I have offered my amendment. The Sen
ator from Northumberland (Mr. Bound) has
told us-that at the proper time he will vote with
us. This is subterfuge. The proper time is
now. This courtesy has been refused to that
General by the Senator's political friends in a .
neighboring State. - Can we hope for any bet
ter here at another time ?
Mr. BOUND. Will the Senator allow me to
ask him a question?
Mr. LAMBERTON. Certainly, sir.
Mr. BOUND. Has there been any forma
effort made to invite Gen. M'Clellan here,
has he 'suggested or requested that an oppoi
