TH'URBDAY MORNING, SEPT. 24,1868.
ADDRESS FROM THE DEMOCRATIC
STATE 'CENTRAL COMMITTEE.
To the citizens of Pennsylvania:
We world respectfully and earnestly address
a few words to those . of you who have returned
to your homes' from the military service Of our
Wintry. On politioal , subjeete, we addresi you
all as citizens ; it is as citizens you will attend
the polls. Your State, by her laws, solemnly
enjoins upon you not to approach the polls as
On some of the: questions of the day, you'
have had special . means of observation. You
have been at the South. You have ~seen its
negro. population. Many of you haVO come
bask' etinvineed' how 'vain` and.' impraeticable
are the schemes for its instant emancipation
and advancement, in prosecuting which the
Abolition .party disturbed, the , harmony of the
Union, and at last involved the white race of
our country in the work of mutual destruction
by civil war. . -
You have learned, too; from your prisoners,
and, from the people /tane• been,ainong,
that it is this same scheme for alevating the
negro which now protracts "the war. After
you* first victories, the mass Of the Southern
people eould have been broughthack into the
Unien, under the Corustitution ; Abe secessien
leaders weuldhave been left, without an army; '
,AbelitienParty dictated n bolidy . that
set aside the Constitution, and - presented-in its
place• emancipation negro equality, and .gen
end•oonfisontion. 4491:458,11 White MRP'.d O not
submit easily to , terms likethese,,andtheyhave
afforded to the secession leaders the very means
they' 'needed to etlinulite their folldivera to des
perate aind.-protractedi resign - Übe :Thus the
warlacbeen, kept rip with all its terrible ex
penditire eflife, and blood,and treasure. The
AbOlitiovisti hive been 'the best recruiting offi
oars Air tee' and'Davie, for witheut:the help of
the Abolition proclamations they never , tiouid
have• drawn from the small white population of.
the States-they occupy the vast armies , which,
in nearly every battle, have exceeded in num
bers, but not in valor, the eoldiers of the Union.
,Practically; the Abolition party at the North
has proved the Most useful ally to. the seces
sion leader's, for the Abolition policy has si
lenced and kept under the trnion men of the
South; of who& Mr. Lincoln said,' in his first
mange, " It =may be well questioned whether
there is to-day a majority of the legally quail-.
fled voters of any State, except perhaps South
Carolina, in favor -of disunion:; there is much
reason to believe that the Uniom men ,are the
majority in many, if not in every one of the so ,
called seceded States." Here was the weak
ness of the rebellion, till Abolition cams' to its
aid and united the Southern people. .
The Democracy have advocated a constitu
tionel policy, maintaining at the • North and
always offeringto th'e Son .th; the original:Con,
stitution agreed to by our forefathers:' . Thos
we saw nielehtln of • giving the :Union men of
:the :South the ; upper 4114 oldie -secessionists.'
This is prevented by the-policy of the Abell,-
Monists at the North,; And when they losepoil
ticarpower'here, then theit twin brothers, the
seeessioniets'of the Bouth,'-will . fall from power
_look to Military despotism as the
means to keep their hold on power. As sol
diers, you have hid fall eiperience o military
rule. You know its nsiti,its hardships and
its evils. Necessary in armies, it .% not, as
you well knowi a form of government fltfor a
free people, , The strict mibmiesiou, the ma
ioning obedience to every superior re.

ticians, needing as' mush as' any Men to be :
held in eheek by the- law honk perpetrating

scription appalltnen from the, age, of , twenty to
forty-five are Made liable to military duty, and
from all who may be cilaimed as within this
altos, as well as f 4 roni fill soldiers, tla picitec
tion of oivil juititte is new taken away by pro,'
clamation ;, and no citizen is to be :allowed' to,
vindicate, his right to liberty if deprived of it
by any military, authority. Whilst
fighting' for the Constitution, you and all of
us, it seems, have lost the constitutional rights
and safeguards of liberty which are our birth
right as American fieemen,
Stump • orators, some of them political gene
rals,' forbid you to reflect on these .things.— r
They tell you now' to think only of war.—
There is a time and place for all things. In
the field ~you. have thought and acted as sol
diers. Your noble deeds prove how well you
did your military duty. You will do it again
when you return to the field. But if' you are
to be here on eleetiou day, now is the lime
for jou to think; as free-born citizens,
politileal condition of your country. We ask
you tit vote with us to maintain, for yourselves
and ydur children, the free constitutional Gov
ernment that yOuilithere left to you. Think
of these thingenow before it is too late. The
next proclamation may assail the ballot-box.
Let us use it wisely while it is yet left to us.
But.you arc llrget4—perhaps you Will be Or
dered—not to vote for the candidates of the
DemocritcY. Why 'snot? We cannot reply
with' fact 'o argument to the vile slang made
up of vulgar abuse and political nicknames,
such as "copperheads," "traitors," "accession
late," and the like. You learned to despise
these long age, when they were poured out
upon the gallant' sons of Pennsylvania—upon
M'Clellan, M'Call, Patterson and many'others,
who have been Your leaders and your comrades
in the field. A life spent in honorable service
of our country is no protection from partisan
abuse, but rather seems to provoke it. You
will judge men by their lives and charatters
in the past, If you wish to be sure of them in
the future. When did Our candidate for Gov
ernor, George W. Woodward, forget his duty
in order to serve himself or his party, in any
that that Pennsylvania gave into his keeping?
"He deprived: the soldiers of a vote," say some
of the Itepublican politicians. We are , glad to
meet a charge that has any meaning in it. We
will give a few words to this.
When you come to the pollein your proper
election districts, you ;will find that no one
has deprived you of your vote. There was a
question whether the Constitution of Pennsyl•
vania provided any means for a citizen to
vote when he was absent from his home on the
day of an election. Pour oases of camp-voting .
came, about the same time, before the courts,
or rather three cases. For in the case known
. as Shimmelpennick's case it was proved and
admitted that no votes had been really given by
any one; the pretended returns were shown to
-be - forgeries made up in Philadelphia, and as
suchgthe court rejected them.
The case of most importance was the case of
Ewing against Thompson, well remembered in.

of musketry and Lartiller7 being kept up with•
deadly effect. • • •

'not 'engaged, our• skirmishers keeping up a halt

The enemy finding their assaults vain, ma
noeuvred to the left, with the intention of
,throwing a force on the 'Roseville road,, and
attacking Thomas on the left flank; At this
juncture Thomas ordered general Brannan,
who had one brigade in reserve, and two with
Reynolds, holding the key of the position,
'whibh was Thornten's Tight, to move to the

frowthe left, and &Mug the oentre into the
.mountains, both right and centre being much
scattered, without any serious loss in killed
The right and centre gone, Thomas' right
become exposed to a most terrific flank attack,
and Reynolde and Brannan, and the right of

handsomely from his position on a strong
ridge, with heavy less., The fire from one of
Granger's batteries mowed them down. like
The fight lasted about an hour, with slight
loss to UN, Capt. Rumen, Gen. Granger's Ad

After thin bloody repulse the enemy remained
quiet until four o'clock, persisting however, in
