TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 23. 1863 THE DEMOCRATIC PRESS OF TEE STATE ON THE NOMINATIONS. The Reading Democrat, published at the home of Mr, Clymer, Pro The Democratic State Convention, which met at Harrisburg on. Wednesday" last, has given to the people of this Commonwealth two candidates of whom they have every reason to feel proud. In the choice of Hon. George W. Woodward for Governor, and Hon. Walter 11. Lowrie for Judge of the Supreme Court, the Convention has shown its regard Or the high est considerations of patriotism and public duty, and a proper sense of the importance of the present crisis, which demanded of i% mem hers such action as would raise the party it represented far above the paltry level of expe diency and personal preference, and place it upon the exalted platform of principle, honor and truth. The Convention transacted its business promptly. Its proceedings were not impeded or delayed by protracted discussions upon mi nor points of differenCe, or factious disputes in regard to important questions. The nomina tion for Governor, it is true, was not made without a spirited contest, in which the friends of the several prominent candidates manifest ed, as was but natural, a warm interest; but the prevalent feelings, during the several bal lotings, were these of friendliness and gene rous rivalry which clearly evinced a pre-deter mination to be satisfied with and cordially con cur in the choice of the majority, upon whom soever it might fall. Berke county felt att extraordinary interest in the Gubernatorial nomination, from the fact that one of her own citizens was a promi nent candidate before the Convention, and with the most flattering prospects of success. It would be an effectuat:, to serf that his failure to re..eive the nomination, particularly after his vote had steadily risen until it came within five of the required number, was not a disap pointment to his many friends, in and out of the Conyention. But that disappointment is 'couples with no feelings of dissatisfaction, in view of t he i excellent choice that was made; and no man more readily or cordially endorses the nomination of Judge Woodward than Mr. Clymer himself. In his speech to the Conven r tion, after its work was dope, and in private conversation with friends, he has exhibited an unselfishness and a magnanimity that do him honor and prove the sincerity of his attach ment to the true interests of the Democratic party. The handsome vote he received was a rare compliment to one so comparatively young in public life, and he has reason to view it with a gratification and pride that even the nomi nation itself could not have much enhanced. With such a feeling in regard to the action of the Convention, on the part of Mr. Clymer and his friends, it will not be necessary for us to assure the Democracy of the State that Old Berks will heartily support the ticket as nomi nated, and give it one of the largest majorities, if not the largest, she has ever cast. Judge Woodward is, we believe, a native of Luzerne county, but has resided for several years past in Philadelphia. He is a gentle man of irreproachable private character, a learned lawyer, and in his political convictions, an unwavering Democrat, of the Constitutional Union school, He was the Democratic caucus candidate for 'United Stated SotlfitOf in 1845, but was defeated in the Legislative Convention by the treachery of several members Who were elected as Democrats. In 1852, he was elected a Judge of the Supreme Court of Pennsylva nia, which office be still bolds, and in which he has earned the reputation of being one of the ablest jurists that ever sat upon that bench. Mature in years, experienced in public affairs, firmly fined in his principles, positive in char acter, and with a mind and disposition pectin arl, fitted for the efficient exercise of admin istrative duties, be is admirably qualified for the responsible position to which the Democ racy of the State have nominated him. Judge Lowrie is a , Western man—at present a resident of Pittsburg.' He was elected to the Supreme Bench in 1840, and has discharged his judicial duties with a firmness, an ability and an impartiality which have won for him the highest respect and confidence of the peo ple. His unanimous re-nomination by the State convention was a compliment and an honor that were well deserved: The Lewisburg Argus is eloquent on the sub ject, giving vent to its feelings in the following language: We to-day hoist the names of Hon. George W. Woodward, of Philadelphia, and Walter H. boarrie, of Allegheny county, as the standard bearers of the level men of Pennsylvania, for the great political contest be ween fanaticism and treason and patriotism and loyalty which is now upon the eve of precipitation. For Gov ernor, the invulnerable, honest, great minded and patriotic Woodward is presented. No• man in this Stale is more qualified in ability, in tegrity (private and public) and deep rooted and unyielding fidelity to the Constitution, the Union. the vital interests of the country, for the gubernatorial chair of this great Common wealth, in the present fearful national distrac tion, than he. Firm, persevering and unerring in the performance of duty and in the defense of right, he is every inch a MAN, and his moral character and impartial and upright bearing upon the Supreme bench have made him a sub ject for emulation and secured for him a high estimation and a wide degree of confidence in the hearts Of the people_ We rejoiced to see the great animation and delight with which his nomination was hailed at the Convention. Cheer after cheer rung through the capitol for the apace of half an hour, during which it seemed as though the tremendous audience present was magnified into ten times the real number, and the air was filled with waiving hats and arms, while the floor trembled beneath the multitude of active feet. In this animated and exulting scene we behold the certain and glorious triumph of Mr. Woodward reflected. Men of Pennsylvania, we have chosen an un equaled statesman and patriot for our leader ; flock to his standard, and save our State from the heel of the despot and the ravages of the audacious invader. Support him, and you will sustain a man who will ever have an eye single to the honor of our State, the rights and liber nee of her citiiena, and In whose keeping we can trust with safety. For Supreme Judge, Mr. Lowrie is presented. The manner in which he was nominated (by acclamation) is a powerful evidence of, the es teem and confidence in which he is held. His ability for the position is unquestionable. He is well worthy of the confidence which the Democracy have reposed in him at this perilous period. We-shall support him to the farthest extent,of our , ability and influence. The ConVention was composed of the most talented and patriotic men of thy 1141091 and nobly and creditably did they execute the work which they were chosento perfoini. The eyes of the people were , anxiously turned to catch the first appeerance of their deliberations, and PRICE TWO CENTS We are certain that no honest 155412, Democrat or Republican, will be disappointed on learning the results. The contest between democratic republicanism and despotic centralized power will soon open ; let patriots flock to the stand ard of liberty and right, resolved to win. The Pottsville Standard says : The nomination of the Hon. George W. Woodward was greeted with the wildest enthu siasm. The unspotted integrity of his charac ter, his eminence as a jurist, his large experi ence, his quiet but firm adherence to the prin ciples of the Democratic party, and the high respect with which he is regarded by all and every class of citizens, render him worthy an honor which he will adorn. Judge Woodward was, in the year 1852, appointed a Justice of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania by Gov. Bigler, to fill a vacancy occasioned by the death of the Hon. Richard Coulter. He was nominated and elected the same year by the Democratic party to that position, which he has held ever since, with honor to himself and advantage to his native State. While he is no politician, in the general sense of the term, yet he is clear, decided and earnest in his ap proval of the principles of the Democratic party. He has never held an office except that of Justice of the Supreme Court, in which be has obtained an enviable reputation ; but was widely known and respected as a member of the Convention to revise the Constitution of the State of Pennsylvania. In that Con vention George W. Woodward was but a young man, yet his ability, clearness and legal acu men caused 'him even then to be regarded as one of the most promising men in Pennsylva nia. Of this all parties may be certain, that Judge Woodward understands the Constitution and laws of the United States and of the State of Pennsylvania, and when he takes the oath.re quired as Governor of Pennsylvania, he will keep it in the letter and spirit_ Ofthe Hon. Walter H. Lowrie, candidate for Justice of the Supreme Court, it is needless to speak here. Comparatively unknown, he was elected a member of the Supreme Court, and is at present Chief Justice. As to the dignity and ability with which he has fulfilled his du ties, all parties, no matter how diverse in po litical sentiment, can testify. We have arrays tegarded the success of the Democratic party as sure at the coming elec tion, but the wisdom and patriotism manifes ted by the Convention on Wednesday last, ren ders it only a question of majority. Upon that question Schuylkill county is good for 2500. The York Press thus speaks of the nominee: The State Convention yoetorday nominated the Hon. George W. Woodward as the Demo cratic candidate for Governor. His well known character as a jurist and statesman, as a life-long, unflinching Democrat, and a pure and incorruptible citizen, makes this nomina tion peculiarly fortunate at this trying crisis in the affairs of our country. ... The convention his nobly discharged its duty. A hearty re sponse in favor of the candidate presented will be given by the masses of the people of the State. An everwhelming majority will ratify the nomination. The•Greensburg Democrat remarks The delegates to the Democratic State Con vention met at Harrisburg on Wednesday last, and-oia the-ninth ballot nominated Hon. Geo. W. Woodward, of Philadelphia, for Governor. Hon. Walter 11. Lowrie, of Allegheny county, was nominated by acclamation for re-election to the supreme bench. Better nominations than those agreed upon by , the convention could not have been made. The convention has nobly discharged its duty. An over• whelming majority will ratify the nomina tions. Col. Tate says, in the Columbia Democrat: The State Convention has nominated the Hon. George-W. Woodward as the Democratic candidate for Governor. His well known character as a jurist and statesman, ass life long, unflinching Democrat, as a pure. and in corruptible citizen, makes this nomination pe culiarly fortunate at this trying orbit in the affairs of our country. The Convention has nobly discharged its duty. A hearty 'response in favor of the candidate presented will be 'given by the masses of the people of the State. An overwhelming majority will ratify the Domination. After 'the nomination of Judge Woodward, Judge Lowrie was nominated by acclamation for re-election to the Stipreme Beach. The Carbon Democrat has the following: With the nominees now presented for the support of all conservative men of the State, both men of unimpeachable integrity and high moral character, the success of the Democratic ticket is certain. Judge Woodward is an eminent jurist, well known throughout . the Commonwealth as a prominent public man; his record is one of pure awl unstained devotion to the principles of Denocratio goverment, and his private ha well as his public character is without a blem ish. lie is a man of undoubted integrity and moral worth, and with such a standard bearer the Democracy of the eld Keystone State will come out of the campaign this fall with fresh laurels. To the Democracy of Luzerne the Democracy of little Carbon send greetings. To 3,500 majority for Woodward in Luzerne, add 1,000 for Carbon. A Harrisburg correspondent of the Pitts burg Post truly remarks : The nomination of Judge Woodward for Gov ernor has excited the enthusiasm of the De moeracy to the highest pitch. It is one of those events that does not need to be argued up. It strikes the mind of every one as just the right nomination under all the circum stances. Witte men, Clymer men, Cass men, and all manner of men, except the corrupt and envenomed fanatics, who support an im becile national administration for the sake of the plunder it affords them, admit that Wood ward's nomination was a master-stroke of pol icy, whether regard be had to the interests of the Democratic party or to the interests of the state and the nation. Already every Demo orat feels the thrill of coming triumph, and the Republicans read in the radiant countenances of the joyful and confident Democracy, the dawn that awaits them, and which no effort of the "Loyal Leaguers" can avert. The unanimousi nomination of Judge Low rie was unexpected by everybody. His con duct on the bench, ever since his elevation to it, has been acceptable to the people ; and the sound principles he laid down in the case of the Jeffereonian, as welt as the good pluck he exhibited, had given him a hold on the affec tions of the. Democracy which few public men of the present day posses East of the moun tains he will run a tremendous vote, and I take it for granted that the west will give him the hearty support he so eminently deserves. The West Brinch Democrat says : We have only time to say in this issue that our candidate for Governor. is one of the ablest statesaien of the oonntry,. a man that is an ,heuer to the Skate and nation., ,With Such en executive the old Keystone lops occupy, her true position among the eavereign States of this Union.

We extract the following from the Philadel phia correspondence of the New York Tribune: "We are gratified beyond measure at the whole•souled promptitude of NeW York- What Governor Seymour has done to aid the good work has been a surprise as well as a gratifica tion. We did not expect as much at his hands. Your 7th regiment has played a most, important and useful part, and is entitled to the lasting gratitude of all Pennsylvania. In New Jersey Governor Parker has surprised ue in the same way, 011 Toothy he addressed one of the returned regiments in very appropriate terms. He told them that if New Jersey was anywhere to be defended, it was on Pennsylvania soil— that one veteran' among them was equal to a dozen raw recruits, and urged them to again march for the defelibe of their firesides. The appeal was made in response to a dispatch from Gov. Curtin that he would urge these returned men to fly to Harrisburg." In times of political excitement the radical politicians hurl their epithets at conservative men with a freedom to which no other party can ever hope to attain. But when serious danger seems to threaten our homes the sober truth comes out, and men know on ihom to rely.— This correspondent is not alone in his surprised awakening to the truth. Similar exp,ressions of wonderment and delight come from radical papers and people in all parts of the country. Why did they not expect patriotism from Gov. Seymour and Governor Parker ? Because they believed the countless falsehoods manufactured abo u t area; by unscrupulous slanderers, who now shrink from the memory of their iniquity. "The man who votes for Seymour votes for a traitor," said Mr. Raymond, President of the New York radical convention. " Miscreants like Seymour," said the Rev. Dr. Bellows.— "There is no Seymourite who does not know that to vote for his candidate is to support treason," said the Tribune. " Seymour ought t o be hone said Major General Cassius M. Clay. "We brand the whole crusade of Sey mour as treasonable, " said the New York Times.. It is not out of place to record these expression just now, when. men in their calm senses, and radicals, frightened at impending danger, learn that words are vain, and know where to look for safety. It is not so surpri sing that men who only read the newspapers which are devoted to such abuse as we have quoted should have been misled as to the char qeter of Governor Seymour. Governer Parker was abused in just the same way,•and with the same motives and the•eame disregard of truth. The Pennsylvania people who have been mis led are opening their eyes and minds, and they may also add to their new stock of information the fact that a very large proportion of the New York soldiers who have gone to the help of the sister State are men who voted for Gov. Seymour, and are called Copperheads by the New York radicals. We will not arouse con . tradiction by claiming more than half of them ' as Seymour voters, but we apprehend that no radical paperbereabouts will deny that at least half of them are of that class. If it should be denied, we will claim the.full proportion which we have reason to know of. Now in the face of the facts, what melan choly reflections must the men have who stand: on the record as having uttered such language as we have quoted If their words had been true; we might long ago have despaired of the result of the war. As it is, the country begins- to appreciate the fact that there is a vast dif ference between that "loyalty" which consists in supporting the administration and its mea sures, and the true loyalty which supports the government, the Union and the Constitution. The former is narrow, sectional and selfish, leading to disunion in the North, and conse quent ruin. The latter is broad, patriotic, American; and by it only will this country be saved.—Journal of Commerce. THE TRAVELER MILROY: Some people call this bloody-minded Aboli tiopist a General—we do not think he is muck in that line, but all will agree that he is a fast travelbr, and knows how to run from an enemy as well as any other boaster in the field. The Pittsburg Chronicle, a paper sufficiently Admin istration to page for a . " loyal" sheet, remarks We hear on all sides praises of Milroy's heroic defense. Notwithstanding this, we be lieve it will turn out that the abandonment of Winchester• was a great blunder, if not a die grace; that it will form the subject of a court of inquiry; that the force opposed was not larger than - our own army, although Milroy Was able to hold his position agekirart thirty thousand men, and that the retreat wee con ducted without skill, and with every evidence of a panic. The strong and well- mounted works at Winchester were constructed and occupied by an ample garrison, expressly to prevent an advance of the enemy down the Shenandoah valley. The outlying post at Berryville, with the cavalry there, were designed to guard against surprise and to check the enemy if he should menace . Winchester. Yet, Berryville was surprised and had to be abandoned, and Winchester was surrounded almost without the knowledge of its garrisOn. The result was that, after a show of resistance, the Union troops, ten or twelve thousand strong, were marched out from their fortified works, before an attack ing 'force of but fifteen thousand at the utmost, leaving all their stores and cannon behind. The eireumstances of the flight Were moat humiliating. The cavalry went off in Otte di rection and the main body of the infantry in another. Many of the fugitives became the helpless victims of their audacious pursuers, and another body, sixteen hundred strong, that escaped to Hancock, were so disorganized and demoralized by the absence of their officers that they fied, like startled sheep, at the mere re port of an advance of the enemy- At first we were told that General Milroy had spiked and abandoned iris guns but had saved his " artil lery." This was a mystery among the myste ries of the liar, until General Milroy himself tells us that he had lost all his artillery and stores. How can we ever expect to flamed when strong and important fortified positions like Harpeee Ferry 'mad Winchester ere entrusted to fuels Who yield them almost without a - blow ? How differently the rebels behave under like cirourrotances, let Donelson, Vicksburg and Port Hudson attest. Who can now estimate the deplorable results which may follow the tame ebandonment of this fortified gateway to the North ? Sorely Lee has made a mistake in his late congratulatory dispatch, stating that Gad had given him this victory.• 'T wits man , weak man.

Now we should like to have a' cOUplit-:-sue to•edminteter the government, and the:other to command our ar mies in the field.—Prentice.
