On the scarlet mountain yonder,
Summer lies dewu to die ;
She gather her robe of splendor
Aroandher royalty !
Her under, parpling Bosses ,
Pillow her royal hod ; . .
Her myriad, gentle grasses
Are weeping about her bed. .
It failed,' th"e!precious premise t
'dt her beauty'f golden reign ;
Hf:ame, the l'Mtha longing,; , ,
Ih silenee, and the pain ;
the was cruel in her aplondor,
She mocked us in iu reign ;
"one held her eareleaa carnival - .
Abore our idol alaiau : ,. .
'Tii not the hand that erowna ui,
The hand held ont to bless ;
Til the hand that robs and wrongs as,
That we oftenest caress. '
Still, 0 beguiling Summer,
We o'er tby beauty lean, .,
Thou didst rob ns, yet we lore thee
DiMrowoed, we hail thee queen.
An passionate ferror faded,
With eyes at last serene,
Tomed toward thy eonqneror, Autumn,
Thou art dying, O, our qneen !
All that thou gavest to us,
In tby morning's graoious glow,
AH thou hast taken from as,
Only onr God can know.'
Tacts for GoverntLent Bondholders, and
the Holders of Greenbacks.
In 1861 eleven States seceded ; -and since
then only twenty-three have been represen
ted in Congress, until the admission ot Ten
nessee in 1S66.
All the United States Bonds 5-20's, 7
::i's and 10-40' s all the greenbacks, and all
the National Banks, were created by this
Congress of twenty-three States.
President Johnson calls this an "assumed
Congress" therefore not legal His sup
porter and the Democrats call it a "rump
Congress," and a "usurping Congress," and
hence not a lawful Congress ; and the great
effort baa been to elect Congressmen in the
North and admit enough from the rebel
States to enforce this "Policy."
If a Congress representing but twenty
three States be not a lawful Congress, then
every United States Bond, and all our
greenbacks, and National Bank notes, are
worth nothing : because an unlawful Con
gress could not make lawful Bonds or la w-
The nmd effort, so recently made by the
rebels and their sympathizers, to destroy
.this Gorernment by force of arms, failed.
Thus tar the attempt to do the same thing,
through Congress, has also failed, because
of the action of the loyal voters at the ballot-box
; and the last effort at destruction is
now being made through the Courts. Wit
ness the recent attempt by Democratic law
yers to induce the Supreme Court ot the
United States to issue an injunction, nulli
fying the Reconstruction Laws of Congress
in Mississippi, Georgia, and other rebel
States. Head also the opinion of George
Sharswood, the Democratic nominee for
Judge of the Supreme Court of Pennsylva
nia, in which he gravely denies the consti
tutional power ef Congress to make paper
money a legal tender. Borievs. Trott, Leg
d IttRigenccrot March 18th, 1864, page
02. )Judge Woodward and Thompson of the
same Court, announced from tbe'bench the
same alarming doctrine, in 1865. (See
Merviiut ts Sailor ei al. Legal Intelligencer
cfJunl&& 301865, pages 188 & 205.)
And this, too, in the face of the fact, that
the Superior Courts of every loyal State in
which the question has been raised, have
sustained the power of Congress. .
It requires, therefore, but little knowl
edge of either arithmetic or law to estimate
the imminent danger of putting any more
men of Judge Sharswood's opinions on the
Supreme Bench of the State!
If you believe the present Congress to be
unlawful or desire our National currency
and Government Bonds to be declared un
lawful, rote for George Sharswood.
If you believe the present Congress to be
lawful, or desire" their action on Currency
and Bonds to stand good, vdte to sustain
them for the party that created the Green
backs and the Bonds, the party , that sus
tained the war, and compelled submission to
lne National authority r and that stands
pledged to keep faith with the Bond-holders,
and to maintain the National credit vote
for Henry W. Williams, the worthy and
honored nominee of this party!. .
When Jeffs rson Davis precipitated rebel
lion to destroy the Union, the Democratic
Newspapers of the North united in declaring
that his acts were just. When Andrew
Johnson violated his oath to secure the es
of traitors from the penalties of the
ws they have violated, the same journal
's insist that he k right" Who will deny

AddreBa of the Union Republican 'State
To tlie People of Pennsylvania : Fellow
Citizens: In a recent address from this
Committee your attention was invited to
sundry issues and principles involved in the
pending canvass ; and also to the political
opinions and judicial decisions of George
Sharswood. A short review of the princi
pal 'occurrences, since the last State cam
paign, is now considered proper. The con
test in 1866 was fought, in the main, upon
the amendments proposed by congress, to
the Constitution of the United States. These
were national issues ; and on the one side
were arrayed the Union Republican party
and the "Boys in Blue ;" and on the other
President Johnson, the Democratic party,
and all the rebels and their sympathizers
from one end of the Union to the other.
On these momentous issues Pennsylvania
rallied her strength, and polled over one
hundred and forty thousantl mors votes than
at her preceding annual election. Among
the results were the triumphant election of
Major General John W. Geary for Govern
or, and-the endorsement of Congress, by
the return of a delegation more unanimous
for the right than ever known before in the
history of the Commonwealth. Other loy
al States united with us, and the insane and
wicked "policy" of President Johnson, and
of his new friends and allies, was over
whelmed bv the unprecedented and magnif
icent popular majority of four hundred
thousand votes! Every State which had
been faithful to the national, government
and the cause of the Union during the war
approved the proposed amendments. Every
rebel State, except Tennessee,rejected them;
and -under the rebel provisional govern
ments created by President Johnson, rebel
power resumed its authority, and became
dominant in'their executive, legislative, and
judicial departments.. Vagrant and labor
laws virtually re-enslaved the freedmen.
Loyal men were out-la'wed and trampled
under foot, and the revived spirit of the re
bellion wa9 everywhere triumphant. Riots,
murders, outrages, and assassinations, were
the order of the day, and security for either
the lives or the property ot loyal men was
nowhere to be found. Treason had front
seats, loyalty had been made odious, and
traitorous conspirators against the life of
the nation were vindictive and rampant.
Such was the condition of affairs in the
South when Congress convened iff Decem
ber, 1866. Ihis nation had solemnly re
solved, and voted, that the Union should be
restored on the basis of loyalty and justice,
and to this end was the Fortieth Congress
elected. Hence were passed the Reconstruc
tion laws, in execution of the recent -popular
verdict. The President vetoed them,
refusing to accept or abide by the decision
ot the people, to whom he had so often atid
so vauntingly appealed. Congress re-enacted
them over the vetoes, by more than the
required two-thirds, and they are now the
laws of the land. Under them, including
the amendments of last session-, reconstruc
tion is rapidly progressing, and would doubt
less ere long be successfully accomplished,
but for the persistent obstructions of the
President, in defiance of Congress and the
popular will. Justice is being done ; loyal
men, white and black, have been protected
from the malice of defeated rebels ; treason,
in a measure at least, has "been made odi
ous," and traitors have been compelled to
'take back seats" as Andrew Johnson in
a lucid interval, declared they should. Even
the better portion of the retels admit the
justice of these reconstruction laws, and
cheerfully acquiesce in their provisions.
Gen. James Longstreet, a distinguished
rebel officer, in a recently published letter
from New Orleans, exp. esses himself as
'I shall set out by assuming a proposition
that I hold to be self-evident, viz : The
highest of human laws is the law that is es
tablished by appeal to arms. The great
principles that divided political parties prior
to the war were thoroughly discussed by our
wisest statesmen. When argument was
exhausted resort was had to compromise.
When compromise was unavailing, discus
sion was renewed and expedients were
sought, but none could be found to suit the
emergency. Appeal was finally made to the
sword, to determine which of the claims
was the true construction of constitutional
law. The sword has decided in favor of the
North ; and what they claimed as principles
cease to be principles, and are become law.
The views that we hold cease to be princi
ples because they are opposed to law. It
is, therefore, our duty to abandon ideas that
are obsolete, and conform to the requirements
of law. The military bill and amendments
are peace offerings. We should accept them
as such, and place ourselves upon them as
(fie starting point from which to meet future
political issues as tJiey arise."
Jeff. Thompson, another rebel General,
in a late letter to George D. Prentice, Esq.,
endorses the reconstruction laws of Congress
thus: .. . i, ;, .
"The Confederate Government wiped out
States rights the first year of its existence,
a bloody war wiped out slavery, and wiped
out the Confederacy, so they are obsolete
ideas : and the plain question now presented
is, 'Will you accept citizenship under our
terms, as contained in this law?' and I em
phatically answer, yes !"
If is' greatly to be regretted that terms
which are bo acceptable to the fighting reb
els of the South, should be so distateful,and
cause so much clamor, from their non-combatant
sympathizers in the North.
" The enemies of the United States having
been finally defeated in battle, united their
efforts to elect sympathizers from the North,
and' to procure the admission of enough
rebels from the South ' to enable them,
through Congress, to attain what they had
lost in the field. This programme was frus
trated by the loyal people at the ballot-box,
in the election of tho Fortieth Congress.
Defeated in open war, and again in Con
gress, these baffled conspirators, as a last
resort, are endeavoring to save "the lost
cause" through the courts. They deny that
anything has been settled by the war ; and
boldly proclaim that "all these grave pend
ing questions" must be decided, just in fact,
as they would have been decided had ttey
arisen eight years ago, or had no war taken
place, iluladelphia Age, July 8th. ) They
not only deny the constitutionl power ot
Congress to impose terms upon the rebel
States or people, but deny that Congress
itself is a lawful body, because the rebel
States are unrepresented. Hence, the re
cent application to the Supreme Court ot
the United States for injunctions, to nullify
the Reconstruction laws of Congress in Mis
sissippi, Georgia, -and other rebel States.
In the same interest, and of the same char
acter is the nomination of Judge Sharswood,
a well known and life long States Rights
man, for the Supreme Court of Pennsylva
nia. He judicially denies the power of
Congress to issue paper money, or to give jt
value by making it a legal tender. (Borie
vs. Trott, Legal Intelligencer, March 18,
1864, page 32.) Judges Thompson and
Woodward, of the same Court, not only an
nounce these same doctrines in the case of
Merrine vs. Sailor et al., Legal Intelligen
cer, June 16 and 30, 1865, pages 187, 205,)
but in the case of Kneeler et al. vs. Lane
et al., (9 Wright's Report, page 238,) de
nied the power of Congress, in time ot war,
to draft men into the military service. The
principles declared in these decisions were
as hostile to the national existence and per
petuity as any assault ever made by General
Lee and his armed legions at Gettysburg,
or elsewhere. It requires no argument to
demonstrate that if these decisions on cur
rency and the draft had prevailed, and be
come the law of the land, success in the
war would have been more impossible than
it the rebel army at Richmond had been re
inforced with half a million of men t Is it
Bafej therefore, to place another man, enter
taining these opinions, on the Supreme
Bench of the State ?
Forewarned should be forearmed. These
Superior Courts are now the 'last ditch of
the rebellion; and tne country calls upon
the "Boys in Blue," and every loyal voter,
to rally once more to the rescue.
Complete your county and township or
ganizations without delay. With this thor
oughly done, victory is sure ; without it,
there is danger. Revive at onoe,--everywhere,
the Loyal Leagues and associations,
which proved of such vast service during
the war. Let every patriotic man feel that
he has something te do in the good
work, and proceed forthwith to do it with
all his might. Exclude all side issues, local
quarrels, and personal aspirations, and labor
only -for the public good. Be not deceived
by the stale clamor about negro equality,
and negro suffrage. These worn out hob
bies were supposed to have been ridden to
death at our last two annual elections, when,
as now, they were declared by our enemies
to be the great issues of the contest
They are now raised up and brought upon
the truck again, mounted by the same ri
ders, and destined to the sauie ignoble end.
Be not discouraged by the vain boasting of
our adversaries. They have been inglori
ously defeated in every contest for years,
and cannot now prevail against us. The
loyal and patriotic people of the State have
heretofore nobly .sustained us, and the cause'
of the country, under the heavy pressure
and discouragement of drafts, taxation, be
reavement, and carnage ; and when nothing
but an abiding faith in an overruling Provi
dence, and in the justice of cur cause, ena
bled us to see the end. Surely there can be
no faltering now, and when the goal is al
most reached ! and when one more united
rally for our principles and our flag will en
able us to secure the ripe fruits of the late
dreadful civil war, and to garner them safe
ly for ourselves and our children.
We stand over the ruins of a gigantic re
bellion, the most formidable enemy ever
encountered by republican institutions. We
stand close by the graves of three hundred
thousand of our noblest men, who coun
ted their lives well spent Jwhen offered
freely for Liberty and Union. In the pres
ence of their speechless but eloquent dust ;
in the presence of doubting and sneering
enemies of free government, at home and
abroad ; in full view of the oppressed mil
lions who from beneath crushing despotisms
watched our flag, with 'tears, and hopes, and
prayers, throughout the four long years of
bloody conflict ; before the rapidly coming
millions of the future ; before a God of jus
tice, and in the name of all that makes
faithfulness to Him, and honor among men,
we stand pledged to secure and maintain for
ever the principles for which our brothers
died. t . ; . F. Jordan, Chairman.

less sofa ; more making puddings and less
