Hon. Wester Clymer.
We desire to call the attention of our readers
to thevery able speech of Senator Clymer, pub
lished on our first, page this morning. Senator
Clymer is one of our firmest Democrats and
most promising young statesmen. He loies no
opportunity of throwing hot shot into the ene
my's camp, and has several times this winter
thrown their whole hive into confusion by the
skill and vigor of his attacks.
The "League with He 11.79
Twenty years ago Wm. Lloyd Garrison, the
editor of the Bolden Li/water, submitted the
followings resolution to an Abolition meeting
in Fauteuil Hall, Boston :

ted States is a covenant with death and an
agreement with hen, which ought to be immedi
To-day Lincoln and his supporters indorse it,
and are tieing the civil and military power of
the country to carry it out. So far as their
own sets go, they have already "annulled" it,
and they are now endeavoring to coerce the
people-into an approval of,or acquiescence in,
Plifragrrat p a paper rests the claims of Gov.
Curtin's nominee for State Librarian upon
"his literary attainments and ability." If this
was intended for irony it is too broad, it ver
ges upon sarcasm. The Philadelphia Everting
Jourrud, of Wednesday, not appreciating the
"literary" merits of the nominee, takes a dif
ferent view of the matter. After alleging that
the appointment "is in perfect keeping with
the policy and practices of the abolition party' ,
—(what they are those who have read the re
ports of congressional investigating committees
know as well as we)—the editor suggests that,
"if Gov. Curtin knew the facts he would with
draw" the name. Possibly.
Removal of the Provost Guard..
She pretense set up by the Abolitionists that
the Provost Guard was ordered off to the Rap
pahannock in consequence of difficulties be-
tween them and the civil authorities is as base
a falsehood as ever was coined. They were
ordered off because they were nearly. all Dem
ocrats, and would have voted. for Gen. Roum
fort for Mayor. The extract from a Washing
ton letter which we subjoin, shows that their
removal was demanded, and the order for it
undoubtedly made out and forwarded before
any difficulty occurred. Besides, the trouble
liras only between a few of the Zonaves and
the civil authorities, whereas the order in
cludes the whole battalion, and two drafted
companies at Camp Curtin, which settles the
question at once that the object of the removal
was political, to prevent Democratic soldiers
from voting for a Democratic candidate, and
had nothing to do with the fracas at the May
or's office. Bergner and other Abolitionists,

WASHINGTON, March 18, 1863.
.Editors patriot and Union :
Look ont—Don Cameron has sent on a tele
graphic dispatch here, calling on Gen. Thomas
to remove theyzovostguard.immediately from
Harrisburg. It is believed the object is to
effect your election for Meyer, as it is said a
large majority of them are Democrats. If such
Aim order should arrive, it will be of a piece
-with that sending on Abolition soldiers to vote

They Never Learn and Never Forget.
What the opposition party was born, that
will it die. It came into the world a fool, and
it will go out of it a fool. Under whatever
name it appears—and they are legion—it is
always the same. It never learns and it never
forgets. ..rHaving no permanent name,.no prin
ciples, no preithe, it relies upon grea t names,
upon deceit, kiyon „ trickery. It belleives: in
bluster and brag, in noise and 'confusion.' It
looks upon the people as simpletons, it treats
them as each, and never discovers its mistake
until they turn upon it and crush it. Not
knowing how to use them wisely, with it vic
tory is defeat and success destruotion. What
they gain by hypocrisy and stratagem, they
lose by ignorance and arrogance. They court
the people *hen out of power, and oppress
them when in.power. They never yet had rope
enough that they did not hang themselves. As
heretofore, so now, they have entrapped, or
bought, a few apostates from Democracy into
their ranks, and foolishly imagine that, under
their instruction and leadership, they can
,the Democratic phalanx, rout the hosts
of freemen who have rallied under the banner
of the Constitution and Union, and retain
power long enough to 'break both down and
establish their favorite form of government—a
Central Despotism, surronnded ['Rd supported
by an Abolition aristocracy. The very vault
of Heaven resounds with their shouts of wel
come to Andy Johnson, the two Wrighte, Van
Buren, Brady, Brewster and the few other
renegades who have recently gone over to
them—forgetful of the fact that,they have tried
the same game time and again without suc
cess, and that the acquisition to their ranks
of such 'disorganizers as the Democracy
is willing to spare them is a source of
weakness rather than strength. Demo
cracy, depending for success upon principles
alone, never loses by the defection of men.
The places of those who leave are more than
supplied by those who come, and, as long as
the principles of the party are strictly adhered
to and honestly enforced in the administration
of government, so long will our strength in
crease. It is only when the party deserts its
principles, or falsifies its professions, that the
people leave it, and the opposition succeeds. It
is not now that we are in danger—not now,
when we have grappled to our principles and
fastened to the Constitution with a vice -like
grasp, that we need apprehend defeat. Our
mission is to save the country from the grasp
of despotism on the one hand, and the reign
of •attarcby on the other—and we will do it.
It is a holy mission, in which the people are
with us—and neither the "gates of Hell," nor
the power of the Abolition administration,
aided by apostates and plunderers and traitors,
can prevail against us. We see the star of
victory shining now in the political sky as
plainly as the shepherds saw the Star of Beth
lehem; and, while we follow its resplendent
light., our hearts swelling with the certainty of
triumph, we admonish the Abolitionists and
their fellow-conspirators, the renegades, that
their hour draweth nigh, and solemnly warn
them to "flee the wrath to come" while yet
they may—for those who withstand the ap
proaching whirlwind of popular indignation,
who resist the massed and mighty power of
the people, will be crushed and ground as be
tween the upper and nether millstone.

Thursday. However this may be, the Tele
graph contains a villainous editorial article,
undoubtedly from his pen, "demanding" of the
administration the suppression of the Pastor
AND UNION. Undoubtedly this paper is a thorn
in the side of the Abolition crew—not a traitor,
a plotter against the Constitution, a black
hearted disunionist, a plunderer, or ahcoundrel
of any description among them, but winces
under its lash, and quails before that storm of
popular indignation which the truths it utters
has helped to bring down , upon them. Never
.thelese it is true to the Constitution, devoted
to the Union, loyal to Liberty, and has violated
no law. It cannot therefore be suppressed
except by the use of despotic power. Is that
what the Telegraph would invoke ? - Let it con
eider well what it is about. Let it calculate
the chances before the edict it asks for is ob
tained and attempted to be put in execution.
We stand by the law and the Constitution—we
have offended against neither—and under their
shield and in their name we defy the malice
of our enemies, whose lies have blackened
Heaven's record against them and mantled the
cheek of Satan himself with shame. What crime
have we committed that would authorize any
constitutional power in the lani to suppress our
paper? To every charge made by the Tele
graph we plead not guilty, and defy them to
the proof. We hold ourselves responsible for
what we say and what we do to no power but
the law, and the law will hold -us guiltless. If
it is in contemplation to bring against us a
power above the law, to restrain us from the
exercise of rights acknowledged and privijeges
conferred by the Constitution, we have only to
say that we neither know nor acknowledge such
power. That would be despotism—and none
but a traitor to the Constitution would appeal
to despotism or attempt to exercise despotic
Once for. all, we tell the Telegraph, and we
tell the dog Forney, too, that we despise them
—spurn them—spit upon them. Let them at
tempt the worst their malice can suggest—
while law reigns we are beyond their reach.
When• that ceases to reign, it matters little who
falls first. Our turn may come to-morrow—
but will not their turn come ? In good time
we shall see. To-day, at least, armed in hon
esty, loyal to the Constitution and the Union,
void of offence against law and truth, and con
scious of the uprightness of our purpose, we
shall act as though we were a free American
citizen. If we go down to-morrow, it will be
at the post of duty, battling for constitutional
freedom, and cursi9g all tyrants and the min
ions of tyranny.
TRH resolutions purporting to have been
acted upon in caucus on Wednesday night, and
to be put upon their passage in the Legisla
ture, calling for a National Convention, which
were published in the Philadelphia papers of
yesterday, are ascertained to have been sur
reptitiously obtained and given to the public
without the approbation or ,consent of the
committee. We trust if the issue in the State
is to be made before the people upon the re
solutions now pending, they Will present some
thing more adequate than the ones referred to.
Nineteenth Senatorial District.
In our paper of Wednesday morning we an
nounced that Col. W. P. *ell, of Bedford,
would contest the claim of. Ili. Bruce Petrikin,
Bs., of Huntingdon, as Senatorial delegate
fah the district to the Democratic State
vention, for reasons therein stated. Since
then we have received the Somerset Democrat,
of the 18th, in which we find the following :
M BENATORIAL CONFERI3OII.-A meeting of the
conferees from the counties of this Senatorial
district:is requested to assemble at the public
house of John Hafer in Bedford on Wednesday
of April Court nett. The conferees from Som
erset county were absent at the former meet
ing in consequence of notice given them that
said conference would not be held at that time.
It is hoped there will be a full attendance at
the time above mentioned so as to save dif
ficulty in the State Convention.
J. M. HOLDERBAIIM,
Conferees from Somerset County.
What we want to know now is who gave the
Somerset conferees "notice" that "the said
conference would not be held at the time ?"
When that is known we shall have a clearer
understanding of the case. We have good au
thority for saying it was a "trick" purpoiely
practiced. Who was the trickster ? The press
of -the district should let the people know—
for we are about entering upon a contest in
which fraud should not be permitted.
We have at length some stirring news. A
brilliant cavalry fight occurred near Kelly's
Ford, on the Rappahannock, on the 17th. Gen.
Averill, with a force of 2000 cavalry , and Tid
ball's battery, crossed the Ford at six o'clock
on Tuesday morning, defeating and capturing
a strong picket posted there to dispute the pas
sage, and after marching a short distance en
countered about an equal number of rebel cav
alry under Generals Stuart and Fitz Hugh Lee.
A battle, consisting of a Series of charges and
hand-to-hand conflicts with the sabre, ensued
and continued about five hours, when the rebels
were defeated and took refuge behind an in
trenched battery, flanked by rifle forts and
**cads, four miles from the Ford.. General
Averill having accomplished the object of his
reconnoissance, secured his prisoners, the
wounded on both sides, and a large number of
horses, recrossed the river without the least
annoyance from the enemy, who were too badly
whipped to follow him. About eighty prisoners
were brought in. The wounded of the enemy
showed plainly enough by the marks on their
persons that the sabre was the weapon med.—
Among the prisoners is Major Breckinridge, $
cousin of the traitor General of that name.—
Four of our men weire wounded in the first en
counter with the rebel pickets—the loos in the
subsequent encounter is not stated.
There has been another fight on the Black
water. The termination of the battle has not
reached us. At one o'clock on the morning of
the 17th, the Eleventh. Pennsylvania Cavalry
and two sections of Capt. Davis's Seventh
Massachusetts battery, under command of Col.
Spear, were despatched by Gen. Peck to attack
the rebel entrenchments on the Blackwater
opposite Franklin. The attack was made at
nine o'clock in the morning and had continued
nearly an hour when the N. Y Herald's cor

derived, left. Two sepaiate cavalry charges

'LETTER FROM PHILADELPHIA.
Horreependenee of the Patriot and Union.
PHILADELPHIA, 'March 19, 1863.
In the face of the already large mass of
evidence, and that which is daily accumulating,
it is a wonder that any person pinioning the
least penetration can be foUnd who doubts that
the aim of the present dominant party is the
utter annihilation of Democratic institutions
on this continent and the erection of a cen
tralized despotism of aristocracy. The south
ern radicals have the same object in their
minds ; and in view of the machinations of the
extremists of both sections, the people may
well become alarmed for the safety of their
Government, than which no better ever existed.
The actions of the existing administration
have been such as to make-IL apparent to every
observing citizen that it does not desire the
restoration of the Union unconditionally; but
that a new government is to be formed, wherein
unlimited sovereignty is possessed by the Ex
ecutive. We are to have the old days of the
Patricians and the Plebeians, with all the "im
provements" of modern aristocracy. The
"parent chapter" of the Abolition Leagues
(now so rapidly being formed by the aid of
"greenbacks") is supposed to be in this city;
and if - the other organizations are similar to
the one whose palatial headquarters are at No.
1118 Chestnut street, the commonpeople will no
longer be deceived by these false professors of
republicanism. The anti-Democrats always
have had an aversion to showing themselves
squarely before the people; and their present
pendant for " leagues" is not entirely new.
Do they meet together and invite the people ?
Do they allow free diacusssion t Do they act
as if they were conscious of being clad in the
"armor of right ?" Far from it. They rent
a house at a very high price—none of your
ordinary domicils, mina—furnish it in a style
groyal splendor, velvet, damask, etc. Nobody
is admitted within its sacred precincts save
dyed-in-the-wool Abolitionists, and they must
be of the eon, the " best blood;" too precious
and good to be in danger of hostile bullets !
The time is spent in 'chess, and criticism of
loyal men, while the "vulgar herd" and " un
waehed populace" stand out in the cold, be
cause their hardy hands and manly bodies
are not encased in kid gloves and broadcloth,
or they do not trace their lineage from the
Puritans. And this is Republicanism
I make this allusion to the exclusive charac
ter of the League simply as an example of the
principle which is the basis of all the actions
of that faction which is striving to build up an
aristocracy in this land of freemen. There is
Df .Winkiii-eite,tiV, 37%14 men laughed
at the country's distress, spit upon our Con
stitution, and by their infamous conduct, caused
many a fervent prayer to be uttered that the
halls of our National Capitol may never again
be disgraced by the presence of such a wretch
ed set. here the cry was raised, "You cannot
have the Union as it was," and every bill they
passed was in strict accordance with this decla
ration. The spirit of popular liberty is in the
way of ambitious and designing men—and the
rights of the many must fall in proportion as
the privileges of the few are secured. If tt ere
is to be any equality, it must be for the negro,
and the same power that raises hiin degrades
the white man. The three hundred dollar ex
emption clause of the Conscription bill is an
undisguised blow at the poor man; one of the
blocks in the temple of royalty which is to be
built. With surprising audacity, these sche
ming men plot and accomplish our ruin, and
with impunity pollute the free air of America
with their pestilential heresis.
The triumph of Conservatism will sound the
death-knell of oligarchs' propagandism, and
bury in a common grave whatever of dogmas
or tenets as are inimical to the sound principles
upon which our Government has so long
