A favorite tcuiperanoo lecturor down
South used to relate tho following anco-
dolu to illustrate tlio inflencc of u bad ex
ample to the formation of habits, ritniuoua
in their effect, s
Adam, and Mary his wife who lived iu
tho old States wore very good members
of the church gootl tort of folks anyway,
quite industrious and thriving in the world
aud Mary thought of a good glass of tod-
Whenever tho minister called to make
Mary a visit, which was often, who con
trived to have a glass of good toddy made
and tho ministot never refused to imbibo
After a while Adam got to following the
xatnpln ol the uiiuis-ter to such an extent
that ho became a drunkard drank up
everything ho had, and all ho could got.
Mary and Adam bceamo very poor in
coniequciioe of his following tho minister's
cxamatnp'o so eloiely ; but tho good min-i-ler
continued still to get bis glass of tod
dy, Ouo day he called iu and told Alary
he was going away for a week should
return on Friday and handed her a book
containing the catechism, and told her
when ho returned he should expect her to
an-wer the questions. Mary said yes, and
laid away the book carefully. But Mary,
ike a good many others forgot it until
the very Friday that tho good minister
was to return. What shall I do? said
she, 'tho minister is to he here to day, and
Ihavn't looked in tho book he save ine I
How can I answer tho qucstious V
'I can tell you,' said Adam, 'give me a
quarter, and lot mo go over to bmith s
and get some good rum, and you can ans
wer him with a glass of toddy.
Mary took tho advico, gave Adam a
quarter and a jug and off ho started. Af.
ter getting his jug filled, and on his way
back, Adam conoluded to tasto the rum,
Ono taste followod the other, until ho
stumbled over a pile of rooks and broko
tho jug and lost all tho rum, Adam man
njed to stagger homo.
Soon as he got into the liouso Mary asked
very anxiously for the jug of rum,
Poor Adam managed to stammer out
that ho Humbled over a pile of rocks, aud
broko the jug and spilt tho rum.
Mary was in a fix Adam drunk tho
minister coming the rum gone and the
questions unlearned, But here comes the
iniuistor ! It wont do for tho man of
God to sco Aduui drunk to sho for want
of a better place to hido him sent him un
der tho bed. By the time ho was fairly
under in caruo tho minister. After sit
ting a few moments, ho asked Mary if
she could answer tho question, How did
Adam fall ?
Mary turned her hoad first ono way,
aud then tho other, and finally stammered
'Ho fell over a pile of rocks,'
R was now tho miuister'a turu to look
blank but ho ventured auothor question.
Wbcro did lie hido himself after tho
Mary looked at tho minister, thou at
tho bed, but finally sho spoke out with.
'Under tho bod, sir! There, Adam,

It scorns hut yostcrday that loyal ladies
and gentlemen, if wo may use tho expres
sion, woro sending mittens, flannel shirts
religious tracts, abolition newspapers and
election tickets to tho "poor soldiers. '' -Tho
mittens and flannel shirts wore all
right. The religious tracts wore all right
and wcro very handy for tho soldiers to
havo at certain times. Tho Abolition
nowspapors wero all right, for tboy were
loaded to tho muzzle with denunciations
against Democrats, and their mission was
to incite mobs, personal violence, and
hate for all who tlillctcd in opinion with
the editors thereof. Tho election tickets
were all right for they wcro lists of tho
names of tho loyal cowards, who dared
not go to war, but were -willing to stay at
home, get in office, and assess taxes on
the property of soldiers in tho field to
raiso bounty that their precious selves
might bu safe ' Of course this was all
right, for it was sanctioned by tho great
and good Lincoln, and the only means
certain poverty stricken laborers iu this
worldly vineyard hud to obtain a living
and dress their families in stylish raimcut,
or pay for beer, tangle-leg whisky, or for
tho surpport of the shiftless editors who
would die but for the charity bestowed on
It acorns but yesterday all this was tho
order of the day. Meu wrote letters to
tho dear soldiers aud enclosed election
Pretty girls sold kissos for fine cents
aud embraces for a higher sum, all for the
poor soldier. Men and women cried aloud,
"give or be damned 1" "Contribnto or be
spotted I'' "Endorse or bo mobbed !
and tho poor people gave.
Now, tho soldiers, foot-sore and weary,
oomc home. The men who have followed
the echoes of tho cannon down to tho gates
of hell. The men who hath bathed their
feet in the blood of their comrades, as they
followod the glittering, Hashing sabro up
to shako hands with death. Tho men who
wcro food for nowder and ball, for sabro
and ba3onet, for horses' hoofs aod the tires
of artillery wagons. The men who were
prayed for by hjpoerites, and preyed up
on by army contractors, sutler-, and the
guerrillas of Heaven, known as army chap
lains, are now coming home. They come
footsore aud weary. They bring dirty
looking bundles strapped to their backs.
Their clothes aie travel-ataiued, and their
.eyes wauder hither and thither in search
of their once earnest friends !
They sit on s'orc step, and in alloy
ways, caating crackers, cheese, raw pork,
and hard bread. They havo toyed with
death as a boy cracks a whip. They have
dared tho devil, the works of hell, rebell
ion and abolitionism, that negroes and
office-holder might grow sleek and pros
parous. They havo been to war -they
have returned, and the ones who were
once so loud in tho praiso of the soldiers
now pass on the other sido of the 8treet !
Girls givo no more kisses. Hot coffee,
sweetoakc aud religious tracts are no more.
It is thus abolitionism shows its gratitude.
Damn such solfisii hypocraoy.

Gkntlk.men : 1 have the honor to ac
knowledge tho reception of your Utter of
tho '25th instant, announcing my nomina
tion os the Donioeraticcandi late for Auditor
General of tho State. Although the po
sition was not sought for hy me, 1 accept
the nomination, and tended my thanks
for the compliment thus paid me. A do-
cent respect for tho opinion on the people of
Pennsylvania, whoso suffrage is solicited,
seems to require a frank statement of my
I was opposed to secession, even when
simply a political dogma, advocated at tho
hustiugs and at the forum; which is
proved by my subsequent conduct when it
had grown into armed insurrection.
I am opposed to ucgro suffrago, as
every while man should bo, Nature has
erected abarrios against the two races en
joying equal political rights in tho same
community where thoy approximate in
numbers as in tho Southern States. San
Domingo is a good case in point to prove
tho incompatibility ol tho two races exer
cising equal political privileges in harmo
nv. Thcro has been almost perpetual
warfare between the negroes aud mulat
toes since the island has beuu in their pos
session ; which has boon ouly a struggle
for the ruling influence between the puro
Atricau and the mixed blood. If this
people of the samo race, but of different
caste, cannot govern a small island in
peaco, what are we to suppose would bo
tlio condition of things when tho negro
comes into competition with the puic Can- j
casiou in the struggle for empire in tho
South ? The founders of our government
intended that the whito should ho the
governing race in this country, and it will
be a calamitous day for both people when'
the black man is given tho political Iran
ohise, and entitled to hold office. 1 am
opposed to any chango in tho State Con
stitution in this respect; aud deny to
Congress all right whatever to fix the
qualification for suffrage in any State,
I am iu favor of President Johnson's
policy of restoring the States, lately in re
bellion, to their constitutional obligations.
I cauuot admit that their ordinances of
secession took any of them out of tho
Union. For a time au armed force i '..ir
rupted their constitutional functions, but
did not destroy their identity as States.
Hence the States, iu their political signili
cation, not having been destroyed, they
nccd no rc-coostruction. but simply to be
restored to their reciprocal rights and du
ties ; when the Union will bo made whole
as boforc. Wherever they shall send rep
resentatives to Congress who are qualified
by tho Constitution, and . tho laws of tho
respective States, there is no regular pow
dr iu that hotly to refute their admission.
I appreciate the peculiar and trying silua.
tiou uf tho Presidcni,and think hu should bo
treated with forbearance by all pur
ties. His plan of restoration gives evi
dence that he docs not intend to ignore the
rights uf the Slates, ami bo ld captive by
tho radical doctrine ol cotiiohdation.
Tho Convention did well to demand uu
immediate and complete rrstoration of all
civil rights in tho loyal States. If there
was an excuse for withholding them in the
lays of actual rebellion there certainly can
bo uono now. Ytju say to tho Prcsidout
firmly, bat kindly, restore to tho people
tho habeas corpus, and trial by jury, as
fully as they were enjoyed before the re
bellion, and abolish military courts except
for the rial ol person in the military and
naval service of tho United Statos. Thtso
things are granted to tho peoplo by tho
Constitution, aud withholding them violates
it iu spirit and in fact. When we ask
that they bu ustorcd, we only demand
whet belongs to us.
I am in favor of the most rigid system
of economy in the administration of pub
lic affairs, In view of the hoavy taxation
there should be retrenchment iu every pos
sible way, All officers, civil and military,
whoso services a statoof poaoodoes not ab
solutely reqtiiro, should bo disposed with;
and our system of taxation uoulu bo so
amended and equalized, that every man
will be obliged to hoar his sharo of the
public burden aeoordiug to his ability.
I am pleased that the Convention took
uotion on tho subject of equalizing tho
bounties of soldiers. Thcro is every roa
son why thu patriotic men who unlisted iu
1801 aud 'Q'i should bo placed ou au
dijualily with thjo who uhud hi 4 Um
period. Should I bo elected, whatever in.
fiueuoe I may posacss,offioial or othorwisa,
will bo exercised in obtaining justico for
the early defenders of tho government.
Whatover honors others may havo ac
quiro in tho oontost.just clo-cd, tho private
soldier, who bore tho boat and burden of
tho day, will always remain tho trtio hero
of the war, aud he is entitled at all times,
to our consideration and gratitude My
past history is a sufficient guaruntou that I
shall not overlook his claims. I remain,
very rcupcctlully, your obedient servant,

tion for Surveyor Getieral"by Demooratio
Stato Convention which assembled at Har
risburj: ou tho 2.1th inst.," has been re
ceived. Not only was this nomination unsought
and unexpected on my part, but if I had
been consulted beforohand I would havo
urged my friends not to iutroduoomy name
boforc tlio Convention. Any hesitation,
however, in now accepting, might bo con
strued into a want of appreciation ol iho
distinguished honor conferred by tho Con
vontion, or a want of faith in the princi
ples promulgated by it. I certainly feel
neither. The iiupottaneo of tho position
would have been my chief reason for not
soliciting it, and the revolutions adopted
are but a practical application to existing
exigencies of thoso catdinal principles of

A White Man Flogged by a Ne
gro. To the Editors of the Cincinnati Enautcrcr
I noticed in your issue of tho 10th inst.
an article from tho Louisville Democrat,
giving an account of a disgraceful affair
which took plaoo at Jcffersonville, Ind.,
by the drumming aud parading through
the streets of a luhite soldier, surrounded
by a negro guard, which calls to my
mind a far moro disgraceful and inhu
man act which 1 icilncsscd at Fort Dela
ware. Tho barbarous act which I am about
to narrate, aud the circumstances which in
duced it, aie briefly as follows : The
white man who was (logged was a citizen,
aud employed as a deck-hand on a steam
boat called the Osceola, which tnado daily
trips to and from the fort. After Mr. Lin
coln had becu killed this inau, in conver
sation "with others, remarked that Mr.
Liucoluh was "only oue of the many
thousauds who had been killed, during
the past four years, as the lcsult uf this
unwarranted war," aud said whilo "his
Lineoln'sJ assassination was a sad afLiir,
ho believed it would have saved thousands
of lives, and bo better for the country ,had
he been killed at the commcuccmcut ol the
For indulging in tho rbove remrrks he
was brought up to tho commanding gen
eral's heudquartirs, wheu the gcncral.as
sisted by members of his stall', beat this
unfortunate man in a most shocking man
ner, after which ho was taken to tho guard
house ami tied up by his thumbs, his to'os
only touohing tlio ground, for two hours.
After that was done his head was bhaved
and ho was Hogged by a negro, under
guard, from tho fort to tho wharf, about
a quarter of a milo. When ho reached
the wharf he was perfectly red with blood
from head to foot, and his body was scar
red all over from the effects ot tho whip.
His clothes were completely torn oil of
him, and ho presented a sight tlu't would
make any ono who had a spark of Christi
anity about him shudder. He fell at the
wharf, and was tiuablc to support himscll
when ho was picked up by somo of tho
guard, by order of tho Provost Marshal,
who bad charge of this most Urccious
not, and placed in a skiff taken to Salem,
New Jersey, whero ho resided, aud givon
to his family iu that condition. I was
informed aftorward that he died. I was
also informed that his mother was a wi
dow woman, and ho was her sole support.
This, no doubt, will appear horrible to
tho public, and 'seem hardly possible that
a man, claiming to be civilized, and with
tho rank of brigadier general in the Uni
ted States army, would bo guilty of suoh
inhumanity and barbarity i but neverthe
less, it is true aud J was an i'jci it,ess to
, ths jtfiuc.
But, Mr. Editor, this it only one of tho
many barbarous and treaohcrous acts
which wero practiced on prisoners by
thoso scoundrels, and which I intend to
mako ptiblio as soou as I can devoto my
attention to them.
I mako this assertion, and ohallcngo
refutation to tho same, that tho manner m
which tho prisonuis of war wcro treated
at Fort Delaware wa3 fully as bod and
cruel as, it 13 charged, and which I ho
liovo was so, tho Union prisoners were
treated at Audcrsonvillo. This I will
prove era long, by giving a fair statomont
of tho facts D. Fi.aneoan.
Thoughts for Pcnnsylvanians.
Practical Republicanism moans negro
equality, and negro equality means op
position to paoification and reorganization
to peace, union and prosperity. Thoso
who are opposed to the President's plan
for settling the difficulties which have
disturbed thu country, aro sure to bo found
advocating negro suffrago and equality.
The reason is plain. Chief justice Chaso,
and Senator Sumner, aud Thadtleus Ste
vens uuderslaud perfectly the game thoy
are playing, and tho instruments they
need to effect their troasouablo purpose.
Tho stories of cruelty to negrocs,tho talos
of secret plots iu tho Southern States
against tho Union and tho Government,
tbo constant agitation of the old res ad-
judicata by the Republican journals, aro
all intended to keep open the bleeding
wounds of the nation, and, if possible,
prevent the sections from onco 'moro unit
ing on the Constitutor Bat mischievous as
these agencies are, they nre barren and
innocent when coroparcd'with negro equal
ity. That is the thorn which rankles and
festers and is intended to rankle and fes
ter in tbo minds of the Southern peoplo ;
and hence it is turned and twisted inces
santly by Republicans. They continuo
this devilish operation in order, if possi
ble, to disturb thc'relations which now ex
ist between tho South and tho General
Government, and thus afford a pretext for
tho use of the military power in holding
the States 33 provinces, and thu neoolo
This being the evident use which tho
Ropubliean purty means to mako of tho
doctrine of negro suffrago and equality,
are the people of this State prepared to
endorse it at the polls by voting the Re
publican ticket ? No Stato in the Union
has moro reasous to desire 11 speedy set
tlement of tho pending issues between tho
tho North and South than Pennsylvania.
All her interests aro identified with a per
fect Union. Her vast resources noed a
wide market. This can only bo obtained
by u uuion of all the people uoith and
south of her, on a basis that will hide tho
pa-t, and restore practically the equality
of tho States tinder tho Constitution. The
attempted degradation of any portion of
the white peoplo of this country, bu.
government rests upon the popular will, is
a war against the purity and perpetuity of
a representative system; and if the at
tempt be successful, tho result must be tho
distui banoo aud destruction of (be whole
fabric of society, political, social und in
industrial. Uudor our present system, tho
interests of tho whole peoplo, North, South,
East and West, aro linked together by
common hopes, Icara and interests. Wlut
affects injuriously ono section, rcducos its
pioducts, uproots its industrial nystom,
prostrates its trade, destroys its busincM,
must and will affect the whole.
These thoughts aro pertinent to the oc
casion and tho duties they aro pressing up
on the people of this State. Tho peoplo
of the South aro honestly a till laithfully
luboiing (0 tr&uquilizo that section, They
are succeeding atlmiieally uudcr the
plan proposed by the Piosideut. Dele
gations, composed of leading men from
that scocion, have called upon tho Presi
dent and given assurances that the whole
people of the South aro willing to accept
tho plan proposed and labor to put it into
osrly aud efficient oporatiou. But they
need the co opporation of 1110 truo Union
men of the North, iu order to prouut tho
Radicals from arrostiug the progress of tho
patiiotic work .'Jgc.
