SP C H
HON. JEREMIAH S. BLACK,
Democratic Mass Convention in Lancaster City,
&Wernher 17,' 1863.
' FELLOW CITIZENS :—I have not accepted this
invitation to address you with any, hope of giv
ing you new light on the issues before the peo
ple_ There are some things too plain for discus
sion, and the man who does not understand the
fundamental principles now in contest, is be
• low the reach of an argument. ,
This Government—rthis Constitution and
these laws—were made by the, patriots ,of the
Revolution to secure the blessings of ilberty
to themselves and their posterity. Their blood
and treasure expended upon the erection of
the Government, gave them' an Inheritable es.
tate Wit which has come Aown in the regular
course of descent. to their heirs. We, the, white
Men of,America, are their heirs.
The Government being our property, i we
have,the same right to save it from overthraw
by warning one another of its . dangef, that any
One of you has to prevent the destructien of
Phis house by raising the cry of of fire when' he
aseithe,fiames bursting_frotir the Not ' "And
this is a duty N i viiich ytlirarely be performed ;
for the people of this country have so long
accustomed to speak Plainly what they belieye
sincerely' upon the subjects which concern
their temporal' salvation, that they could not
be silent if they would. .•
This great combinatiOn of independent sov
ereignties, uniting, all the. powers of a cowl'.
kdated empire for. the , GOLUMOU defence and
general welfare, with all tbo advantages of local
self-government in out...domestic affairs, was
:the grandest political structure ever made by
human hands,and its preservation was the roost
sacred trust ever committed to any people 'on
the globe. If we shall bp compelled to' Close
this contest without a rettoration of the Union,
our worst misfortunes are yet before,us. No
imagination has measured the full extent of
that calamity, or seen to the bottom of that
frightful abyss. If any one here feels pity for
the Southern people, let him bestow it ; not for
the sufferings they have. already endured,, but
for the evils which await them in case they
succeed in the rash and rebellious enterprise of
dissolution. Neither can ire of the North look
in the face of such a Misfortune without dread
and terror. A simple commercial view of it
(and that is the lowest of all views) is enough
to startle us. We , lose an internal trade with
the South worth to us at least one hundred
millions per annum in clear profits. We.lose=
the larger part of' that great foreign commerce
which heretofore made all the world dependent
on U- A financial revulsion must follow this
bl • ted system of fictitious paper credit as
rely as the night follows the day. With all
these elements of weakness we must shoulder
a debt of perhaps three thousand millions of
dollars, Pennsylvania paying about twenty-Pie
millions per annum as her share of the interest,'
a burden which even'a prosperous people could
hardly expect to carry without being crushed.
With business everywhere paralyzed, property
universally depreciated, in debt beyond hope
of redemption, ground to the' earth- by taxa
tion, political insignificance in the eyes of the
world, and a consciousness of national shame
and degradation in our own hearts, we must be.
gin the world again, like a broken hearted man
who has lost his character, his property and
When these things are recollected, let no
man forget that the Democratic party is the
only one which ever appreciated the value of
the Union. No other ever made devotion to
it a cardinal principle of its creed.. There
never was a time since that party first Came
into existence, when any man could remain in
its communion for an hour if he showed indif
ference, much less if he expressed opposition,
to the Union. When any one of its pretended
winners declared his willingness to let the
Union slide, he was promptly notified to slide
himself over to the , opposition, and he always
obeyed the order. If there be a man among
us now who would not' freely give all he has
and all he is,to bring back the Union to the
condition in hich it was three years ago, he
is not in his proper . place ; he ought , to be in
secret conclave with the ccloYal leaguers,"
plotting against that Constitution and those
laws which alone can bind the Union together.
•That we are as true as ever to 'our ancient
faith—that we have not given up one inch of
the high ground we occupied in all time past
—is proved, if proof were necessary, by the
character of our present candidate for the
highest Once in the State. I think I know
that gentleman as well as one man can be
known to another. 6 1 can say, with a ProaioUnci
conviction of its truth, that no word hat ever
been heard from his lips, nor a line seen. from
his pen, which did not breathe the most fervent
devotion to the Union. Indeed; he has been
all his life time uncommonly sensitive to the
dangers which threatened our national institu
tions. The Union of the States, with their
rights unimpaired and all the liberties of the
people protected, was and is the polar star of
his political course and the supreme object of
his affections. No man, even among the great
patriots of the past age, has been more elo
quent in his warnings against disunion, or pre
dieted our present troubles more accurately.
In a hundred conversations or a score of writ
ten communications, I, and many others, have
seen the evidence of his love for the Federal
Union and his hatred for every species of
treason that might..weaken or overthrow it.—
Few persons have ever been in contact with
him, even for of short time, without being im
p:tmed with the great truths which make so
large a peat of his own stromg and clear under
standing. Friends-and enemies admit his sin
cerity, for feelings so intense and convictions
so habitually urged upon others, could not pos
sibly be counterfeited. He has fairly earned
the title of a .f Union Saver." He has deserved
the sneer of the opposition when they said he
sat constantly "beside the sick bed of the
Union;" and if the Union is destined to ex
pire in the insanity of civil strife, his devoted
aftecion will keep there to the last; "like love
watching madness on the bed of death."
It we had been in any sense opposed to the
Government, or unfaithful to the Union, would
we have proposed such a candidate for Gover
nor ? No: we would have nominated some
black Abolitionist, who believes the Constitu
tion to be a covenant with hell, and who by
destroying the COnstitution would make an
end of the Union as certainly as you take the
life of a man by cutting the heart out of • his
body. Or we would have worked out our de
structive purposes by nominating some mighty
contractor—one of those large handed rob
bers who are weakening the Government by
depleting its treasury and stuffing its money
into their own big pockets. With such a
man wielding all the
power and influence of
this great State, the Government surely could
not last long. In short, if we had any evil
intent against the Union, we would have taken
any candidate we could lay our bands on rather
than George Woodward, the Union Saver—
the man of upright character and, dowbright
speech—whose bands are clean of all crime,
and whose pockets are empty of all gains ex
cept what came there as the just reward of his
Much as we honor and love him personally,
it is not for his sake that we desire to make him
Governor. Setting aside his fidelity and oars
to the National Government and Union, we
could do something a great deal more for his
profit than that. Let him avow his ,apestacy
from the faith of his fathers ; let him prostitute
his conscience and his intellect to the pur
poses of Abolitionism ; let him forget that he
belongs to the Caucasian variety , of the human
species and-enter-the service of the negro ; let
him make .a few speeches to show the superi
ority of the African over the Saxon race ; let
him contrive the Ways andineans of promoting
negro insurrections and always shard ready to
take the part of the. negro sight or wrong;
above all, let him denounce the Constitution as
it is and curse the - Union as it was; let him aban
don the principles of liberty in which he was
bred, and. degrade himself low enough to call
every freeman a traitor who is not.willing to , be
a slave. If l i r will do this he may get a con
tract on which he can • cheat the United States
at the rate or. a hundred thousand dollars. a
month, If his inexperience should make him
awkward, and he ;should be detected and, ex
posed so that even his confederates in knavery
are compelled to admit hiegniit, there would
still be a reaonkee for'him. When the worst
canes to the worst, we on get him a. foreign
mission—send him to cool his blushes in the
snows of Russia or harden the bronze upon his
cheek under the hot sun of Spain.
But stealing thWpubhc money or trampling
on the donatitution is not his idea'ofloyalty or
yours either. He would restore-the Union by
defending :the COnstittition, by giving to the
laws Itheir just Supremacy, by : guarding the
rights'of the peoPle, and by driving off those
obscene. birds -• of prey that are now gorging
themselves ,on the,. prostrate , carcass of the
nation. _ .
I know there are those who think that the
Union never can,bg,restored ;
.who believe that
the great'gulf, of bYOod and fire which now rolls
bet Ween the Isrciriti and the South has been
made by this Admiplettation so wide and so
deepthat it will reniditilorever impassable. I am
not one of those who regard restoration as a
forlorn hope. Every man whO has sense enough
to knoir his right hand *Om his left must be
lieve that, if the Democratic party had been
successful in 1860, this country 'would now
have been united; , prosperous, happy and tran
quil. The American flag would have waved
over every inch °four territory," not, one star
extinguished nor one stripe erased." And no
concession to the South would have been made
or needed beyond' what was required by the
Constitution or demanded.by that Magnanimity
which the stronger party ought ahvays show in'
its treatment of the weaker. As our troubles
began with the advent of the Abolitionists to
power, so they will end when .-the' , people
scourge back thathand - of malignants to the
obscurity from which they ought never to have
emerged. The Democratic party built up this
Government, kept, tho 1J ion together for
seventy-five years, and was always ready cc to
shield it and save it or perish there too." The
same party will bring back the better days of
the Republic and remove, if not, immediately,
at least in process of time, that huge mountain
of sorrow which is now crushing the life, out of
the country. '" •
dOne thing is perfectly' Certain : • ,
that if the
Union is ever restored, it must be on the basis
of the conatittilidiralidlaws: - Other hope of
salvation to us 'there is tone tinder Heaven.—
When the constitution , was put aside and an
other system of government, compounded of
proclamations and confiscation acts, was sub
stituted in its place, all possible chances of the
Union were postponed until the constitution
could be brought back again. When you re
quire the Southern people to obey the consti
tution and the laws which were made by their
fathers as well as ours, it is but their reasona
ble duty to submit, and itthey do not see it so,
it is our duty to make therm But it is a wide
ly different- thing when-yett-Offer them a con
fiscation act which strips them_of land and
goods, cpupled with a proclamation which lets
loose four millions of ignorant negroes, with
Abolition preachers among them to incite in
surrection and urge the indiscriminate slaugh
ter of the white inhabitants. Whether they.
' ought to give themselves up to this, appalling
fate, is a question which I leave to be decided
by those who have the authority, But that
they will never voluntarily consent to ,a union
with us upon such terms, I think is certain.
If they did,-would that be _the Union that
Washington. made ? , Mould wop.a, union with
tout a constitution be as :dangerottelte us ;o to
them ? How long would a union removed from
thp rock of the constitution and rebuilt,upon
the sandy foundation of a proclamatiOn, be able
to stand when the winds blow and the rains
beat against it ?
That there is something'radically and fatal
ly wrong in a War which has for its object a
negro proclamation inconsistent with the white
mans constitution, is a self evident truth which
pervades the whole popular mind. The negro
policy has changed the public teeling every
where North and South. When Mr. Lincoln
sent his first message to Congress, he deeiared
it to be his opinion that there was pot a majori
ty. for Secession in any State of the Union, ex
cept perhaps South Carolina. Re was right.
Nine-tenths of the Southern people were then
as true to the Union as any • part of the
Nord', and far truer than New England ever
was. The North was as nearly unanimous as
any equal number of people could be on any
subject. Where now .are our union friends in
the South ? And where is the Northern en
thusiasm which two, years ago . marshalled the
whole population into ccranks and squadrons,
and right forms of war ?" Let the Conscrip
tion law answer. Away then with these negro
measures; give us back our constitution and
our laws—let us haie these to fight for, and a
million of true hearts will leap to the conflict,
where now there is nothing but apathy or some•
The men whose influence brought about this
fatal policy have done it with the wilful and
malicious intention to prevent the restoration
of the Union. It was not a mere blunder, but
a crime against the country deliberately per
formed. Let us do justice to our opponents.
The masses of the Republican party (so called)
did not mean it; even their leaders were mis
led. The Yresident is technically responsible,
but not in the sense of intending all the conse
quences. It • was done by that ultra Abolition
party whose printipal seat of power is New
England, with disciples thinly scattered over
the Middle and Western States. That is the
power> behind tie throne greater than the
throne iself ; that is the influence which shapes
all our measures of civil administration' and
regulates the flow of our blood in the field.
These are the men who rule us for their 'plea
sure and plunder us for their profit.
They avowed their purpose 4?f destroying
this government more than thirty years ago.
They made no Secret of the malignant hatred
they bore to the instithtions established by our
Revolutionary ancestors. They wrought ear
nestly in season and out of season to excite in
surrection and murder in tho Southern States.
They did not wait for war to legalize bloodshed.
When one of their number, as coarse a ruffian
as they had among them, an impostor, a thief,
a traitor and a murderer, sneaked at midnight
into a peaceful village to organize a general
system of butchery and actually commenced

the exclusion . of slavery from the territories.
Although that would not make one slave More
or less, they averred` that the Pleasure of in
sulting and defying the judicial-authorities, by
getting a decision of the Supreme Court re

would cc wrap them up' in measureless c'on

resolution abjuring all P9WOr _and all intention

subject of slavery or any other subject. How
did they keep that pledge'? If any Republican

But it was necessary to gain still further
power by another false pretence. When the
war broke' out, they—the same , men who had
plotted the destruction of the Union for thirty
years—shouted. „for the, Union so loudly that
nearly all believed them sincere. That shout
for 'the Unien thrilled the . heart of the whole
Democracy, and they crowded all the ways to
the battle field as - if they were going to a festi

Bull Run - made another uprising necessary,
they put on the records; of Congress a solemn
declaration that the war' was not for conquest
or subjugation, but solely for the Union as it
was before the war, and for the Constitution
with all the rights of the States and people
unimpaired. Again the Democratic respotthe
was universal. enthusiastic and efficient.
These repeated pledges were• shamefully
broken.. The Abolitionists Went to the Presi

which would openly trample them down. The
President refusedrefused for many good rea
sons. The argument by which he justified his
refusal was certainly the mostrespectable one
he ever made in his lig). It became necessary,
therefore, to impose upon him also. They
promised that if he would issue the proclama
tion, nine hundred thousand volunteers would
be forthcoming to strengthen the army. lam

soon threw off the mask entirely, and got a

seven per cent. (I think that is the proportion)
were afflicted with divers diseases, which ren

away to Canada or else paid their commutation

It is by these repeated breaches of.faith that

Such has ,been the history of these encroach

Their first victim is a solitary helpless and per
haps unpopular individual, but they end by
forcing the yoke on the necks of millions.
The people of Holland live in a country
where the land is several feet below the level
of the sea. They protect themselves against
constant inundation by 'a large earthwork which
they call a
,dyke, extending all along the coast.
What they_ are. most troubled With is a large
species of rat, which burrows under and makes
holes through their dyke. Now a rat hole is
not a very alarming , thing in itself ;• but the
actin of the water
,makes it larger every mo
ment. If it.be.neglected for a single night, by
the time the morning dawns, the rat hole has
widened into a huge amnia* the ocean goes
pouring thrciugh it, and the whole land is laid
under water. So it is with the Constitution,
whiph is our dyke. If the smallest 'breech is
once made in it, "the ever toiling wave of ar
bitrary power" which is continually surging
np againatlywill constantly enlarge it until

I tell you gentletnen, if yoia desire-to save one
remnant of your liberties, you must watch the
rat holes in your Constitntion.
But there ion neceeeity, some tell us, for these
violations of law. It is wonderful that any

By all our ancestors in •the old world, by all,
our revolutionary heroes, by all who adminis
tered our government heretofore, the neoeseity
was always thoughtto be precisely the other
way. The supreme necessity which presided
over all others wasobedience to the law. That
is the very, purpose and the only purpose for
which magistrates are chosen. When a man
who is appointed And sworn to guard the laws,
and see them faithfully executed, tells you that
he will necessarily viblate them himself' and
encourage otheik to do likewise, your plain
and obvious answer must be that he is not fit
for his businies. -
All these heresies must be extirpated before
we can hope for peace, Or protection, or Union
or prosperity. But the election of Woodward
will be the forerunner of a national triumph for
the Democratic party. When that happens,
though we cannot certainly promise, we can
reasonably hope for a. restoration of the Union.
If our Abolition enemies leave the country in
a salvable state it will be saved, and this great
nation will start on a new career, whose glories
will make the splendors of the past look dim
in comparison. At all events we pan bring
back the reign of order and law, under which
every eitisin who is conscious of his innocence
may breathe the deep breath and sleep the
sound sleep of a freeman.
ELOPEMENT IN HIGH LlTE.—Poloriel E. H.
Marshall, mustering and disbursing officer at
Rochester, has all summer been paying his ad
dretees to the young and lovely daughter of
President Aaron Etickson, of the Union Bank,
of that city, against the wishes of the "pari
ent," who even carried his opposition se far
as to forbid the Colonel coming to his house,
or haring any coinsuunication with his daugh
ter. Stolen interviews and correspondence
were, therefore, entirely natural, so was an
after arrangement to get married in church on
Sunday last.' Bat the - father heard of it, and
resolved to prevent it; he,lockeithis daughter
in her room in the second story, and thought
the Colonel could not. get her. The Colonel
and the daughter thought otherwise.
After 12 o'elook Saturday night, a New York
lady, who consented to be the daughter's
watching room-mate, awoke and found:„.her
gone ! The family were aroused. Sure enough
she was gone, and a rope of bed clothes dang
ling from the window indicated plainly enough
the manner of escape. She had brav t ely let
herself down into the arms of some of the Col-
Oriere subordinates, and they had hurriedly
conveyed her to Charlotte, on Ole lake, a few
miles distant from Rochester, where the Col
and a minister were impatiently waiting.
The time was 2 o'clock Sunday morning, but
the twain were qniekly.mtuie one at that un-
usual hour.—Boston Herald.
