SPIRIT OF THE STATE PRESS
The following sound and sensible article we
clip from the Pittsburg Post :
PEACE CONVENTIONE.—The peace convention
lately held in New York city, is causing the
most influential of the Democratic press of the
country considerable discussion. That the
p eo ple who pay the taxes and furnish the fight
ing material for the army, and not the contrac
tors and others who are growing opulent upon
the nation's distresses, are . anxious for peace,
there can, of course, be no question. Fernando
Wood, an adroit politician, is taking advantage
of this natural desire for peace, in order to
enable himself to control the great conserva
tive party which, last tall, elected Mr. Sey
mour Governor of the great Empire State of
our Union. The next step in Wood's pro
gramme is to class all Democrats who are not
for peace upon hie platform, as being in favor
of the administration's mode of conducting
hostilities against the rebels. The News, the
organ of Mr. Wood, in its issue of Tuesday
last, remarks that there can be but "two par
ties" in such a contest, and then proceeds as
"There has been much deprecation of a divis
ion of the Democratic party. We share in adi
madversion of any recreantly that wouldlend
to gre .t a misfortune. It is probable that
efforts will be made by incorrigible demagogues
to distract the attention of the people from the
real issues. The power of the Democracy is
and must be concentrated upon one side of the
paramount question. and it has decided, in con
formity with its antecedents, upon which side
of the line it will stand as a champion to the
Out here, in Western Pennsylvania, w look
to regularly elected and constituted conven
tions for the promulgation of platforms, and
the resolves of one of these are always consi
dered binding until superceded by those of a
new organization legitimately chosen. Nor
have we, to our knowledge, any man in our
party, who, like a Collossus, bestrides our State,
proclaiming his crotohete the political convic
tion of a party numbering more than a quarter
of a million of men.
D-sirable as peace is, and anxious as we all
are for its speedy return to distracted firesides,
there is one price the people will not pay for
it—the separation of the States of the Union—
under any °trout:natant es. This tact being as
fixed as destiny, we should like to know how,
a t the pree.et. time, Fernando Wood is to bring
about the only sort of peace which our people
will even hesitate to consider. The formation
of a peace party, however formidable, will not
put down the rebellion, nor if it bad absolute
control of our government, could it dictate a
policy for the Davis conspiracy, whin is bent
upon, not only independence, but what it
terns the "territorial integrity" of its section;
which means all of what are termed the slave
States, numbering fileen. No peace will be
acceptable to the rebels except that which Ber
ko° wled ges their it. depeude ce, besides our
abandonment of the bonier, and other Statci,
now in virtu 11 possession of . our arms. This
they have told the country upon many occa
sions ; and their insolence in denouncing just
such peace men as Fernando Wood, h. sto;ced
the conviction that nothing but force of arms
will induce them t t return to their allegience.
We are now speaking of the present leaders of
the rebeilion. There are, of course, hundreds
of thousands of southern people who desire
peace, hut they are powerless to-negotiate, and
until tney are able to change their rulers they
'will be comitelled to submit to their present
Mr. John Van Buren, last fall, expressed a
desire for a cessation of hostilities, in order
to try the ff-ct of negotiation, with a view to
a reconstruction of the Union. He spoke
kindly of our "erring brethren." and big
propositions only called forth rebel &nuncio.
IiODEI. He and those who thought with him
were held in grea'er detestation than absolute
Abolitiotiirs, and the rebel organs at Rich
mond flatly informed him that the separation
between us is "fixed and eternalt:" This as
surance knocked all ideas of a reconstruction
of the Union. with the present rebel authori
ties, out of Mr. Van Buren's future political
speeches and calculations And we have no
doubt whatever that the resp .uses of the
am phern g, which represent the rebel
government, will be equally denunciatory of
Wood's attempt to induce them to listen to his
Under these cirentnstancee. we do not per
ceive how the New York News is going to com
mit the Democracy to its new peace poti ;
nor do we see how it will sueseed in classing
what it terms war Democrats with the partisan
popportere of the administration A wait
D-tuoctrat is a very differ- at person from a
bloody Abolition fanatic; the first accepts the
war as a necessity and grieves over it ; the
latter rejoices and exults in blood and oarnsge
because he thiuke it is all for the destruction
of slavery. The one is for the restoration of
the Union and the supremacy of the Constitu
don ; the other is for the destruction of both,
if necessary to the accompliahmect of his pur
poses, These broad distinctions the News
cannot very well ohnotire in generalities. and,
unless it can, no amount of vehement decta
mtition and denunciation will divert the people
from their cotsideration. That journal may
enjoy its faith in pease propositions, but at
the present time overtures, to be at all attrac
tive, should come from those in rebellion
against their government.

following, having seen it in several of our
State journals. It is good, however, and the

" THE PEACE MOVEMENT.—The Democratic

be done upon the brsis of a restoration of the
Union. But it will not consent to a separation

The above principles are those of the Demo

constitute the platform on which it must stand
or fall, and with which we expect to sweep the
present administration from power. We claim
the privilege of opposing the administration
and of adhering to the principles of the Demo

or traitors to our country. We are determined
to exercise the rights guarantied tons by the
Constitution, and to act as freemen in submit

the ballot-box must be kept free. We want no,
mock elections, but shall cheerfully submit to
the honest, untrammeled expression of the
popular will. We are for law, order, the Con

terms honorable to the North and the South.
The Easton Sentinel, in reference to the plat
form and gubernatorial nominee, remarks:
The Democratic State Convention, called to
nominate candidates for Governor and Judge
6f the Supreme Court, meets at Harrisburg on
Wednesday next, the 17th inst. From what
we hear and learn this will be one of the lar
gest conventions of the kind ever held in this
State—it will certainly be one of the most im
portant As the period approaches, we observe
an increasing anxiety upon the part of our De
mocratic friends and contemporaries through
out the State, in relation to the platform which
ought to be adopted, as well as in relation to
the candidates to he selected. About the plat
form there can be but little difficulty. An en
dees4ment of the able resolutious adopted by
the last House of Representatives, which were
received with so much favor by the Democratic
press and people, throughout the State, would
be as solid a basis, we think, as could be laid
down for us to stand upon.
As to a candidate for Governor, we have so
many good names presented that we do not
think the Convention can make a mistake
Our choice, as is welt known, is the Hon. Hies
t-r Clymer, the present able State Senator from
Barks county. In pressing him we do so in all
sincerity, without desiring to disparage the
claims of other gentlemen named, believing
him to be one of the most able, high-toned,
honest and honorable yenng men in our State.
His nomination would not only be a compli
ment to the noble old county be represents, but
his name would he a tower of strength in every
quarter of the Commonwealth.
Let us come together on this occasion and
reason with each other, for the coming election
will be beyond precedent, the most important
ever held in the history of the Commonwealth.
It. will decide the issue now plainly before the
people, which involves the security of their
traditional rights and the exercise of the ina
lienable privilege of the free expression of
their opinions. It will add Pennsylvania's
voice to swell the chorus, loud and long, which
is sounding, from east to west throughout the
North, the grand rata Of fiVtOry—the triumph
of the people's will over the blandtehMents of
place and power, the steady approaches of
projected tyranny and oppression.
Let this election, which is to effect so much,
be made sec ire. Let us hear from every quar
ter of the Sate—let the chosen representatives
of the people be aided in council by the people
the represent; and in the Mille Of Liberty and
Law, let them rally in thousands to support
they principles which we have so long honored
and which are now threatened by the agencies
of a new born power.
The Easton Argue has the following:
The last Lucerne Union contains an able edi

Hon. George W. Woodward as the Democratic
candidate for Governor.
The Convention meets at Harrisburg on

Democracy of Pennsylvania. We trust its de
liberations will be harmonious and that the
delegates will enter upon the discharge of their

candidate one of the wisest, ablest and purest
men to• be found in the State.

We trust that the convention n ill make a
wise selection—that they will nominate a man
for Governor whose Democracy is uncompro

undoubted. We want a man of the ?vine=

man and we have no doubt it will give us a
candidate of whom we may be justly proud,
who will rally to his support the whole conser

The Allentown Democrat speaks cheeringly
of the " prospect :"
The prospect for a triumph of constitutional
principles at the ballot box, this fall, is al! that
could be desired. The Abolition leaders seem
to fail in all their efforts to hold their own,
while the people with firm hearts and a steady
purpose• seem to be gaining at all points.
Their " Copperhead" epithet, like their cry of
"Breckinridger," does them no good. The
people are looking deeper than the frothy sur
face. They know that liberty, our form of
government, our property and even life itself
is to be cared for. They would not see it
needlessly sacrificed and squandered, and
among parties they seek that which stands ,by
law, which upholds the Constitution, lad
whicth from its past Union record and perma
nent principles offers the only hope for our
nation in the future. We are gaining largely
everywhere. The people are alive to the great
issues involved. They have ceased to be timid,
and taking their position upon the Constitution
and in favor of liberty and Union, they know
they "are right," and intend to "go ahead."
Any attempt to check the progress of their
principles by despotism or force, will only add
new fuel to liberty's fire and make their cause
more certain of success.
The Hollidaysburg Democratic Standard, on
a d.Change for the Better," hag the follow-
Some of the Republican papers are coming .
to their senses after a long period of delirium.
They begin to find that the freedom of speech
and the freedom of the press are constitutional
rights which the American people will never
consent to surrender, and this fatst may as well
be conceded first as last. The most noticeable
for the better we have yet seen is in Forkey's
Press. In the leading editorial, among other
things, the editor says :
"We who are at home, and under the protec
tion of en army and a government, whose lives
are saved from the angry and ambitious enemy
that now menaces our borders, must see that
the hands of the administration bre strong, and
that the efforts of enemies to minify and
weaken its power by destroying the public
peace are thwarted. This is our duty, and to
obey it we should organize a home campaign.
Tat, every loyal man range hirus . elr under the
law, and prepare to sustain the officers of the
law in their duties. Let every attempt at a
riot or a disturbance be defeated, no matter
from whence it may come. Let us be patient,
forbearing, confident. Let us have no more
assaults upon newspapers, or upon obnoxious
men, for violence only invites violence. Let
us as citizens sumnit to any license that liberty
of speech may engender"; for liberty of speech
is a precious thing, and not to be tossed hither
and thither by an angry mob."
Whether it was the fear of having the poi
soned chalice returned to his own lips sooner
or later, or whether it was for any other rea
son, we cannot say ; but certain it is that Col.
Forney has taken the "sober second thought"
on the subject, and is now willing that Demo
crats shall speak and publish their honest sen
timents without subjecting themselves to arbi
trary arrests or the loss of their property by
mob violence. This is a concession which is
worth something, coming from the source it
does, and shows conclusively that reason is
beginning to resume its sway in the leaders of
the Republican party.

In their case, to the disappointment of hope
for their country's salvation, has been added
the poignancy of grief for the departed—the
loved and lost of their households. Sometimes
when a sorrowing father, mourning for: the
death of a dear son, who has been stricken on
the field of battle, or who has yielded up his
spirit in the hospital, tells us his grief, we ask
trim how it comes he allowed his son to go if
be is so much opposed to the war. The an
swer is almost always the same. "Oh, I
thought it was a war for the Union; I never
suspected it was a war for Abolition, or he
'never would have gone. But whet can we do

About ten days ago we happened to, meet by
aev ideet one of our most respected and worthy
citizens from the upper part of this county.
We alluded to the fact that he seldom visited
our borough. "Oh," said he, "I have Ammo to
meet the body of my Ban I" "Ii your son

the tears started in• his eyes, "he died in the

this unholy war." We were deeply.touched ey
this simple expression of pliterenl gefet and
could make no reply. We saw the heart of the
old man was nearly broken, and we• wondered
if those who induced our .young amen to go
forth to fight for our national unity, under a
patriotic influence, and then changed it to an
Abolition crusade, ever. feel a pang of remorse,
or a sting of eoneoience, for what they have
dope, If they are nut dead to all feeling. they
must at least sometimes pity the victims of
their deceit and fraud. Tne above instance is
only one of many.
