The Democratic Tarty for the Union , 1
The Republican-Abolition idea, which
the disnnionists continually harp upon is,
that the Democratic party and the Union are
dead together.' They ihna identity the life
of the Union with the lite of the Democratic
party. Their aims and their efforts are di
rected to the destruction of both. Through
the Democratic party they aim adeath-blow
at the Union the. "old Union," as they
call it, which tbey say can never be res'.or
ed. -' " ; ' . . .' '
This Republican-Abolition war upon the'
Democracy is a war upon the Union. All
true and genuine friends of the Union are
beginning to see this as clearly a they dis
cern the sun-light, and hence they are ral
lying by thousands and ten thousands to
the Democratic standard, not for the sake
of party, but for the sake of the Union and
the Constitution, which the Goths and Van
da's, North aud South, are seeking to des
troy. - ...
Taiatioa Bescitins from Abolition.
It is becoming more and more apparent
that among the other evils brought upon
the country Jjy abolition politics and intrigue
must be counted excessive taxatioo. The
present Congress have . voted one million
and a half for the negro in the District of
Columbia, besides other appropriations for
his' benefit in quantity yet unknown. All
this must be raise I by taxation. ' Then, it
is estimated that It? 000 blacks are in the
aggregate supported by the Government at
various points, in almost total idleness.
Saying nothing of clothing, the "rat ions" of
this number, at a coil of 20 cents each,
amounts to $20, 000 a day or over seven
millions of dollars per annum and this
vast sum must also be raised by taxation.
. The money la being spent, and payment
most be provided. 1 here is no escaping the
bills, and however specious the forms in
which the tax may be concealed, it is sure
to be imposed, and sere to fall on the white
men of the North. "The labors" of the
Abolitionists and ultra Republicans, "in j
behalf of the black man," may be sammed
op, then, as the instrumentality through
which impost and tax burdens are forced
by millions on Northern capital and North
em labor !
As an offset to this, what has it in reality
accomplished for the negro' ! Let the dem
agogues mak-op tbeirown inventory.
We know not where to look for benefits to
the blacks equivalent to the disasters they,
have brought on white citizens.
' White Men's Wages Reduced by Abolition.
' The Philadelphia Evening Journal says,
that the great influx of negroes into Cbeste1
county, Pa., has so rednced the price of la
bor that the negroes actually work for ten
cents a day.
The above paragraph confirms what we
have frequently declared would be one ot
the effects of sodden. emancipatton,and con
sequent negro emancipation northward, viz:
a depreciation of white men's walkthrough
negro competition; and resulting degrada
tion of the white to the level of the black.
Saying nothing of national taxation for the
benefit .of the negro, which this year, will
amount to ten millions of dollars, there is
reason to apprehend tnai local taxation will
be increased to meet demands on city and
coanty treasuries for those blacks who will
need public aid, whetherfrom idleness help
les8ness or infirmity. The political schemes
of Greeley, Sumner, Lovejoy & Co, are
reaching fruition, and white labor and capi
tal may a well prepare to bend its back to
the burdens which thos demagogues and
their Republican coadjutors are responsible
for imposing. : - -

Call You this Patriotism. We referred
recently to the fact that the Republican
majority of the Connecticut Legislature re
fused to sustain the President in setting
aside Hunter's order. Anotoex test vote
was taken in that body, which shows how
that party intend to " sustain the Govern
ment." A member offers a resolution as
serting for the people of Connecticut.
"That they will steadfastly sustain the
government if suppressing the rebellion,
whether tne President sball adopt their pe
culiar views in all respects or. not, and that
they t will not regard as a " heavy draft on
their patriotism" any sacrifice which they
may be called opon to mtke for the salva
tion of the nation." " ' ' '
Oa a vote being faken,"the Republican
majority voted " oo," and the resolution
was lost. That's Republican "loyalty!"
. We were told, the olber day, of a loud
mouthed Republican of this county, who,
in his anxiety to find fault with Gen. Mc
Ctellan, positively blamad bira for allowing
Jackson to chase Banks across the Potomac!

Was Abolition the Original Canse of the
We say, and a large majority of thinking
men will say, that the Abolitionists of the
North are as guilty as the Southern rebels
now in arms, iu causing the present rebel
lion How fearfully real has become the
prophecy of that eminent statesman Henry
Clay, with regard to the dangers of political
Abolitionism We wish every Republican
in the land could be induced to read and
ponder well the words thus spoken more
than twenty years before the culmination of
the evil which he foresaw "and warned us
against. In the Senate of the United States
on the 7th day of February, 1839, Henry
Clay said :
" Sir, I am not in the habit of speaking
lightly of the possibility of dissolving this
happy Union. The Senate know that 1
have deprecated allusions, on ordinary oc
casions to that direful event. The country
will testify that if there be anything in the
history of my public career worthy recollec
tion, it is the truth and sincerity of my ar
dent devotion to its lasting preservation
But we should be false in our allegiance if
we did not discriminate between the imag
inary and real dangers by which it may be
assailed. Abolitionism should no longer
be regarded as an imaginary danger. The
Abolitionists, let me suppose, succeed
in their present aim of uniting the inhabit
ants of the Free States as one man against
the inhabitants of he slave Slates. Union
on one bide will beget Union on the other,
and this process ot reciprocal consolidation
will be attended with all the violent preju
dice, embittered passions, and implacable
animosities which ever degraded or deform
ed human nature. One section
will stand' in menacing and hostile array
against the. other. The collision of opinion
will be quickly followed by the clash of
arms I will not attempt to describe scenes

view. . ADotuionists memseives would
shrink back in dismay and horror at the
contemplation of desolated fields, conflagra
ted cities, murdered inhabitants, and the
overthrow of the fairest fabric of hnman
government that ever rose to animate the
hopes of civilized man "
Soch were the warning words of that
great statesman and patfiot, whom Repub
lican orators and Republican prints, have
but recently landed to the skies. Henry
Clay has passed from the scenes ot this
earth, but his words live after him, just as
the warning voice of Washington lives, it
echoes through the land. He saw with the
clear vision which only great experience
and a clear, unbiased mind can give, the
effect which was sure tD follow upon the
heels of Abolitionism. He warned us of
the danger, but we heeded him not. He
warned us as Washington had done before
him, but we cast his warning into the same
sepulchre that entombed the dying words of
our country's architect, and we are now
reaping the fruits of this blind folly.
Bnt, to proceed. Our declaration is that
had it not been for Abolition Secessionists,
the infamous rebel scoundrels now in arms
against the Government never conld have
htd even a pretext for breaking up the
Union. This we shall prove by testimony
that even Republicans cannot dispute
Hereisoor first witness, Hon Joseph Holt,
of Kentucky, in his Louisville speech, last
Bnmmer said :
"We make no apology for this wicked
effort in the South to destroy the Govern
ment. We grant the necessity of suppress

ing,t;but Abolitionism that produced H. gard and staff had arrived there on .heir
must also be suppressed. Abolitionism
and Secessionism most be buried in Ihe
same political grave."
Our second witness shall be Mr. Wendell
Phillips, who is a great favorite with the
Republicans. See bow he enstains our
statement. Less than a year ago he made a
speech in Tremont Temple, in Boston, in
which he said:
"The anti slavery party had hoped for
and planned Disunion, because it would
lead to the developement of mankind and
the elevation of the black man.'
Will yon tell os now Messrs. Republi
cans, whether Wendell Phillips told the
troth or whether he lied 1
Now let ns hear from Gov. Andrew John
son, of Tenn., whose veracity the Republi
cans will hardly call in question. He said :
"An Abolitionist is a Secessionist. 1
woold not be persona, bnt an Abolitionist
is as much a Secessionist as any one to be
foond in South Carolina. Now as much as
these disunionists cf both classes abuse
each other, they nevertheless, both unite id
laying violent hands upon the Government
that never harmed either. If I were an ab
olitionist I would break up the Union, for
the disruption of the Union most inevitably
destroy and obliterate slavery. Hence we
are for the prosecution of this war to sove
the Government as founded by our fathers ;
for restoring the Constitution as we received
it. without regard to the peculiar institution
of any State. That a Secessionist and an
Abolitionist are on a par, I can prove by a
simple syllogism : An Abolitionist is a Dis
unionist, a Disunionist is a Secessionist,
therefore a Secessionist is an Abolitionist !"
Cheers and Langhter. Hon. Andy John,
son at Columbus O., Oct. 4, 1861.
Now listen again to a voice from the
grave. Henry Clay, in a letter which he
wrote to Rev. Mr. Colton, dated Ashland,
September 2, 1843, advising him to write a
pamplet against Abolitionism, said : " I
will give yoo an outline of ihe manner in
which I would handle it. Show the 'origin
of slavery. Trace its introduction lo the
British Government. Show how it is dis
posed of by the Federal Constitution, that it
is left exclusively to the States, except in
regard to iugitivea direct taxes and repre

question in the free States will first destroy
