August 22d, 1863.
GENTLEMEN ow MOONING :—You are to be
commended for assembling yourselves as men
opposed to the administrations At Harrisburg
and Washington, and I am glad to contribute
to your proceedings the expression of" some
few earnest words:
An issue between power and liberty is dis
tinctly presented to us by the policy of our
rulers, and if we stand indifferent to it, or ac
quiesce in its decision according to the plea
bure of those who aspire to be our masters,
what shame will be ours ! what loss and in
jury ! what degradation and eternal diagrac4 !
By liberty I do not mean license, but that
regulated freedom established by our ances
tors which we have enjoyed hitherto without
question, and the example of which we have
held' forth proudly before other nations as the
reproof of their systems and the glory of our
By power I do not mean legitimate authority,
but authority usurped and lawless, pursuing
its own ends over a broken Constitution and
through the baleful flames of third war.
Between these—between power. and liberty
—can you hesitate in your choice?' Will you
hold up a balance and weigh, doubtfully, the
arguments which sustain liberty against those
who oppose it ?
Necessity—safety—are these the magical
words by which despotism is to be changed 'in
character and made fit for our adoption ? Shall
the plea of tyrants be accepted as our standard
of public rule ? Shall we concede force, and
and justice, and .wisdom, to one of the most
impudent, false and injurious doctrines ever
intruded into the discussion of publists affairs T
But there is a necessity (quite different from
that asserted on behalf of power) which we
must new admit as most evideot and urgent—
a necessity that we rid ourselves of those who plead
necessity as the justification of their misdeeds.
Those who cannot govern lawfully and justly
are not to govern at all, but to give place to
others. For it is monstrous to say that the
incapable and vicious shall lord it over their
fellows. The rulers who say they cannot
govern by law and according to right,•stand
self-condemned. Judged out of their own
mouths, they are unfit for rule and should be
voted out of power.
Gentlemen, the greatest son of New England
spent most of his life and won his great fame
in this Commonwealth. We are proud that he
became a Pennsylvanian, and took rank in our
history with the founder of this State—with
the• illustrious man who established it "in
deeds of peace." Let us try the logic of ty
ranny by the judgment of that great man. Let
ns invite the apologist of arbitrary power and
advocate of " strong government," who fills
our ears with impassioned discourse upon pub
lic safety, and national life, and necessity, to go
with us to our great commercial metropolis
and there stand with us beside the modest slab
. which marks the resting.place of "Benjamin
and Deborah Franklin." Oh ! hew mean, and
pitiful, and low, and utterly false and detest
able will there sound all these apologies for
wrong—all these pretexts for stealing away,
or taking away from the people the rights and
liberties achieved for them by the great men
of former times I We will hear the voice of
Fianklin sounding in our ears those memora
ble words of wisdom and warning which should
be written up or hung up in great letters
wherever the people meet for consultation .
in times of public danger :—" Tame wno
WOULD GIVE UP ESSENTIAL LIBERTY TO PUR
CHASE A LITTLE TEMPORARY SAFETY DESERVE
NEITHER LIBERTY NOR SAFETY."
Gentlemen, your political opponents think
that patriotism should be called loyalty, and
made to consist in unconditional, unquestion
ing devotion to an administration of the gov
ernment. I believe you will agree with me
that this great virtue requires no new name
borrowed from the literature •of monarchy ;
that it is shown in devotion to the Constitution
and laws of the United States and of the sev
eral States, and that the true patriot regards
public officials with a respect precisely pro
portioned to their gbservance of law,
justice and right, and to their skill, wisdom
and honesty in the performance of their public
Judge your public . men fairly but freely.
Let no man put a, padlock upon your lips, nor
impose upon you any of the false and perni
cious sophisms of arbitrary power.
An important election approaches in this
Commonwealth, and another important one
succeeds is next year. At these, you are re
quired to judge those who have ruled or mis
ruled you since 1860, and to determine, as far
as your votes will go, the policy of the future.
You need no labored exhortation- from me to
inspire yon with zeal, courage, determination
and fidelity in the discharge of your electoral
duties. Behold the evils which afflict the
nation and the dangers which threaten it !
These exhort you, beyond art of mine,
action, and justify that opinion which we hold
in common, that upon Democratic success in
the elections just mentioned. depend. the ex
istence of free, liberal and just government in
this country ; a restoration of Union fel:tided
in consent ; the avoidance of future wars, and
the preservation and growth ` of that material
prosperity which results from good govern
ment when vouchsafed to an united, industri
ous 'and virtuous people.
I am, your fellow-citizen, and obedient ser
vant, C. It. Buctraitaiw.

THE PENNSYLVANIA DEMQcRACE
Of all the elections this fall none exceed in
importance he election in the Keystone State ;
and nowhere are both the platform and the
candidates more worthy of an endorsement by
the people. The principles advocated are pre
cisely those of the model platform of New York,
and now embodied, as a touchstone, in the pop
ular heart through the country ; while the
ticket, for ability, high toned character, and
patriotism, is every way worthy of the momen
The proceedings of the noble gatherings that
are seen all over the Keystone State have the
ring of the hest da)s of• the National Democ
racy. The orators do not spare Jeff. Davis or
the rebellion—nor do they spare the introdu
cers of arbitrary power ; but they deal out
even-handed justice to both ; and among the
speakers are Democratic statesmen, who have
enjoyed the confidence of the people of this
State. and, by their patriotism and ability, won
a national reputation.

of the good and true men of all parties ; and
his selection by the Convention—such is • his
downright honesty of purpose and noble qual

the earlier and purer days of the Republic.
It is related that he has not had, hanging

" Constitutional Union and Liberty accord
ing to American law" is one of the sentiments
of a noble Union speech fitly made in Inde
pendence Square by Judge Woodward. In
another speech he beautifully and eloquently
remarked : " These States are glorious in their
individuality, but their collective glories are
in the Union. By all means, at all hazards,
are they to be maintained in their integrity and
the full measure of their constitutional rights—
for only so is the Union to be preserved—only
so is it worth preserving. It is the perfection
of the prismatic colors, which, blended, pro
'duce the ray of light. It is the completeness
of these assembled sovereignties, lacking noth
ing which they have not lent for a great pur
pose, that makes the Union precious. This
word Union is a word of gracious omen. It im•
plies confidence and affection—mutual support
and protection against external dangers. t lt is
the chosen expression of the strongest passion
of young hearts. It is the charmed circle within
which the family dwells. It is man helping his
fellow-man in this rugged world. It is States,
perfect in themselves, confederated for mutual
advantage. It is the people of States, sepa
rated by lines, and interests, and inefittitione,
and usages, and laws, all forming one glorious
nation—all moving onward to the same sublime
destiny, and all instinct with a common life.
Our fathers pledged their lives, their fortunes
and their peered honors, to form the Union—
ist ours be pledged to maintain it."
These are patriotic words of a patriotic man.

POLITICS IN THE PULPIT.
[From the N. Y. Journal or Commerce.]
Just now, as perhaps at no time before since
the commencement of the war, we begin to ap
preciate the great errors made by the clergy of
some denominations, and • the church assem
blies and judicatories of the eame denomina
tions, in joining themselves to the world, and
adopting worldly interests as the controlling
motives of their action. The broad line which
they have drawn between themselves and their
Southern brethren ie now seen to be a line very
hard to erase, very difficult to pass over, and
the influence of the church over the minds and
affections of men, an influence of the highest
importance in the present emergency, is almost
wholly lost. Strange as it may seem, it is
actually true that when we some time since
said that it was the first duty of the church to
make men gaod men, and they would then be
come good citizens, an "orthodox" religious
paper in New England denied it entirely, and
declared that it was the duty of the church to
make men patriots first of all ! The excitement
under which religion became politics, and mem
bership or the Church of Christ became sy
nonymous with memciership of a particular po
litical p-rty, is Some portions of the country,
will seem one of the most remarkable parts of
our public history, when future generations
review our story. "Our piety must take coun
sel of our p-ttrivtism " was the infidel utterance
of a Presbyterian clergyman in this city, and
the sentiment has made many men forgetful of
their highest duties within the past two years.
This spirit has debased religion to the mere
grade of partisan politics. It has dragged
the kingdom Of heaven down to a level, in the
popular mind, with the miserable initentious
of human wisdom, whose foundations and en
durance are dependent only on the breath of
the Almighty. It is the most melancholy part
of our present condition as a nation, that in
so nanny Protestant denominations the people
have lost respect for the church and ite minis..
tera. and throughout the land the wall has been
broken down between church and world. Dis
respect to the clergy is now visible everywhere.
Churches are talked of as political machines,
and in some parts of tho country they *are

is time for the clergy whn are - responsible for
thiti terrible state of things to reform. They
begin to see it themselves. When they look
back to the work they weiwotioe . engeged in,
and its infinite reWarde, and then to. the work
they are now engaged in, and its brief and un
certain repayment, the very selfishness, of hu
man nature arouses them to think. 'The ap

contemptible exchange for the "well done" of
a voice that they once regarded as Aheir,only

the men and women who now listen and ap
prove the foolishness of 'their preaching' will
be in the dust around their churches, and it
will matter nothing to any of them, or to the
dead preacher himself, what king reigns in
Europe, what people rule in America. With.
that time of release from all concern about'
polities in perpetual sight before him, the po
litical clergymen of these days may well sit,
remorseful, viewing his wasted months, while
men were rushing to war and death, and he
was forgetful of the great charge he had. The
people in some parts of the land have been
wholly without clergymen.
.The latter have
turned into political orators, and hav,e been
making the temple consecrated to worship a
place of brawling and contention. We heard
a clergyman preach a sermon on the Lord's
prayer, in which he said that we had no right,
nor was it our duty to forgive our political
enemies, and that the prayer for forgiveness
as we had forgiven others, was not- based on
any trespass other than of a personatandmri
rate nature ! This horrible distortion of God's
Word was actually made to defile the atmos
phere of a New England' church on a calm
summer morning, a church in which men were
accustomed in other and-better years to hear
the pure word of God from lips undefiled by
the passionate wine of man's wrath, 'which
maker' drunken so many in our , day.
The peculiar position of Captains 134Wyer
and Flynn, who are under sentence of _death,
as an act of reta t liation for Burnside hanging
two Confederate officers, causes deep interest
and sympathy. Mr. Lincoln very properly
declares that he will hang Gen. Lee and Capt.
Winder if Sawyer and Flynn are executed. As
the former is the son of the rebel Commander
in-Chief, and his companion in danger is the
son of Gen. Winder, Governor of Richmond,
it is not considered probable that Davis will
fulfil his threat. If he does, however, there is
no telling how far this lex tationk may not be
Fon some time past it has been the intention
of Mr. Chase and his friends to organize a
bank on the Nicholas Biddle dimensions, and
last week a meeting of some of the great Re=
publican financiers was held. Unexpected ob
stacles arose, several of the initiated having
doubts of the justice of swamping the smaller
banks, who have stood so nobly ,by the govern
ment. Gratitude and patriotism will, however,
soon give way before the necessity of creating
a money machinery to carry the nomination of
Chase and Stanton. They have already the
primary machinery in the Conscription bill, if
it ever gets into working order.

that his 18,000 forced laborers are exceedingly
well paid, that Mr. Hawkshaw, the English en
