A Meek Gray-Back !
There is a paper published in Bellefonte,
ycleped The Democratic Watchman, edited
by an insignificant little whiffet who calls
himself P. Gray Meek, and a very appro
priate name it is, for very "gray" is Peter-
so "gray" that he is and has been through
out the rebellion a "gray-back." This sheet,
which is a weak imitation of the La Crosse
'Democrat,' quotes an item from our last
number,' calling attention to the advice of
the Savannah Adcertixgr to its p&trons, to
drive out of the city all men, white or col
ored, who voted the Republican ticket, and
makes it the subject of a leading editorial.
The little Peter raves, and rants, and howls,
and threatens like aoy other little monkey
tbat has had its tail pinched, avowing
his determination and intention to scratch if
he ever gets a chance.
He not only fully endorses the sentiment
of the Advertiser, but exclaims "Wait awhile
until justice comes nearer home!" which
. means that the valorous Peter would like to
get a chance to be revenged on the loyal peo
ple of Centre county who made him behave
himself when the rebel in liim cropped out
too plainly during the war. If "justice'
had been done then,, he would have been
sent to' a lunatic asylum and kept there for
he is certainly not fit to be at large.
' He is a pretty specimen to prate of "wid
ows and orphans," and "graves" filled by
our "intolerance." The only widows and
Orphans in this county made during the war
an those of the gallant soldiers who gave
their lives t for that country that P.Gray
Meek and his rebel friends were striving to
destroy ; and the only "graves filled" were
those of soldiers and Government officers
foully murdered by rebels and rebel sympa
"Dirty prison -pens and bastiles," forsooth
How many brave and gallant men were starv
ed and murdered at Andersonviile and Lib
by, in consequence of the conduct of such
wretches as P. Gray Meek in advising resist
ance to the draft, and throwing every im-
'pediment in the way of the Government in
the prosecution of the war ? There is no
'prison-pea too 'foul' and none too 'dirty'
- for the miscreant who could enjoy the pro
tection of his country's flag, and at the same
time use every means in his power to trail it
in the dust : no 'bastile too strong or too
dark for the wretched traitor who could aid
by all the means within his reach, the ene
xnies of his country to butcher, starve, and
destroy the gallant men who were fighting
"in. its defence. P. Gray Meek in the last
person who should prate about 'widows, and
orphans, and graves !'
Democracy and Bishop Simpson.
Bishop Simpson, of the Methodist Epi
copal Cnurch, is justly regarded as the most
eloquent man now living, and he is reputed,
throughout the Christian world, as one of
the holiest of men. Of this distinguished
clergyman the editor of the Petersburg In
dex a Copperhead paper.writes as follows:
6'ut this Simpson, this political brawler,
this covetous Bishop, who would rob his im
poverished brethren of the South, even of
their places of worship this presider over
a convocation of devil's chaplains, this wolf
in sheep's clothing, who leads a hungry pack
similarly disguised, against the sheep-folds
of the South what shall we say of hira ?
"Only this and nothing more :" "Believing
that he will have to appear at a bar where
his hypocritical disguises will be stripped
from him while
We Jove a priest,
We love a cowl.
We love a prophet of the soul,
Yet for all his faith can see,
W would not this good (?) Bishop be.

"The illness of Senator Grimes at the
very time when his vote was needed to 6ave
Johnson from an unjust conviction, can be
accounted for on no other hypothesis than
that he was deli berately jxnioneti by the sav

What a fool you are Meek 1 How ready you
are to cry 'stop thief ! ' The audden and sim
ultaneous illness of Senators Howard, Conk

Totes were needed so couvict the arch trai

plained on the hypothesis of "poisoning"
than the paralysis of "Old Grimes." Be

The Chicaeo Convention did its work well.
No better ticket could have been selected in
all the length and breadth of the land. The
nomination of Grant was a foregone con
clusion. Long before the convention met
the people had determined he should be
Resident, and six .hundred and fatty dele
gates simply recorded the decision of the
oyal masses of the nation in declaring
him the candidate.
It would be affectation in us to present
our readers with a biographical sketch of
one with whose name and deedd they have
been so familliar for the last seven years.
He is identified with the history or the
country and stands to-day pre-eminently the
greatest and the best beloved man on Amer
ican soil. It was fitting tbat he should be
nominated unanimously amidst the wildest
cheering ever witnessed in a political con
vention cheering that has been caught up
and re-echoed across the continent, from
the Atlantic to the Pacific shores. As all
eyes turned to him in the darkest hour of
the war to save the imperilled country, so
now all loyal hearts look to him and trust
him to bring, back to happiness and order
that country saved by his genius and the
heroism of the gallant men who followed
him. The people will not be disappointed.
He will be triumphantly elected, and his
with that magnanimity that ' always shone
so couspiciously in the hour of victory, will
signalize an Administration that will be as
successful and as benificient as any in the
annals of our hiatoiy.
In Schuyler Colfax, wc have a candi
date for Vice President, whose fidelity to
the political organization of which he has
ever been a consistent member cannot be
questioned. He was born in the city of
New York in 1823, and in 1836 removed,
with his widowed mother, to St. Joseph
County, Indiana, which is still his home.
In 1854 he was elected to Congress, and has
been six times successively re-elected. His
entrance into Congress was in the great
struggle over the Lecompton swin ile, and
his first speech want forth to repel the tide
of terror that was sweeping over struggling
Kansas, and clearly showed that he was one
of the best debaters in the Lower House.
Over 500,000 copies of his speech were
printed and circulated a compliment never
before received by any member of Congress
"He has been three cinies elected Speaker
of the House, each time" by an increased
majority. His whole character may be
summed up in these words he is a Chris
With such a ticket the Republican party
is invincible. As certainly as the Novem

will Grant and Colfax be elected President
and Vice President of the United States.

The Soldiers and Sailors National Con
vention assembled in Chicago on Tuesday
theJ9thinst. Gov. Fairchild of Wiscon
sin presided. It was a large and enthusias
tic convention.. ,
Gen. Logan. Chairman of the Committee
on Resolutions, reported as follows :
Resolved, that The Soldiers and Sailors,
steadfast now as ever to the Union and the
flag, fully recognize the claims of Gen. U
lyssksS. Grant to the confidence of the
American people: and believing that the
victories achieved under his guidance in
war, will be now illustrated by him in times
of peace by such measures as shall secure
the fruits of our exertions.and a restoration
of the Union upon a loyal basis, we declare
it is our deliberate conviction, that he is. the
choice of the Soldiers and Sailors of the
Union for the office of President of the U-
liesolvea, lhat in the mairtenance of
tbose principles which underlie our Govern
ment and for which we fought during four
years oi war, we pledge our earnest and ac
tive sunnort to the Kenuhlican twrtp a tha
only political organization which, in our
judgment, is true to the principles of loyal
ty, liberty, and eoualitv before the law.
ResoltedLhaU soeakinz for ourselves sn..
the soldiers aud sailors who imperilled their
lives to preserve tne Union, we believe that
tne impeachment of Andrew Johnson by
the House of Representatives, for high
crimes at;d misdemeanors in office, and his
trial before the United States Senate, have
presented unmistakeabie proofs of 4ns guilt,
and that whatever may be the judgment of
the tribunal before which he is arraigned,
the verdict of the "neonle is "m.7i-"
regard any Senator who has voted for ac
quittal as tailing short of the proper die
charge of his duty in this hour of the Na
tfcro's trial, and as unworthy of the confi
dence of the DeoDle.
Resolved, That the Soldiers and Sailors
recognize no difference between native and
adopted citizens, and they demand that the
uovernment protect the naturalized citizen
abroad as well as those of native birth.
After the reading of the third resolution
every delegate rose to his feet and gave three
hearty groans for Andrew Johnson and the
.traitorous Republican Senators, while
the band played the "Rogues March."
On motion of Gen. W. M. Gregg of New

strate that the war was no f ailure, and an
emancipated race lifted from slavery to-day
unites with the Republican party to ui'aiu
tain Republican liberty. Neither armed
treason nor political treachery can arrest
the triumph of our cause. Applause. J If

He tested us in a measure, and to an extent
which the liveliest imagination could not
have anticipated. Posterity, we hopewil
decide that we met that test with the spirit
worthy of a free people. Countless treasure
and three hundred thousand lives offered
were the evidence that we were solemnly in
earnest. We offered our lives and our prop
erty, but it was not cnougn : we laid our
prejudices of race and class upon the altar,
and the consciousness that we at least de
served success redoubled our nerve. The
same high resolve rules to-day,and the hon
est men of this country are ready for eaua!
and even ereater sacrifices if they be indis-
pensible to the dedication of this continent
to liberty and to equal rights. Applause

that we must make all men free and call
them to the battle field.- We learned the

The Kational Republican party of the United
States, assembled in national Convention in th
city of Chicago on the 20th day of May, 18SS,
makes the following declaration of principles.-
1. We congratulate the country on tbo assured
success of the reconstruction policy of Cougres
as evinced by the adoption, in a majority of the
States lately in rebellion, ut constitutions secur
ing equal civil and political rights to ail, and re
gard it as the duty of the Uovernment to sustain
those institutions, and to prevent tho people of
sucn btates from being remitted to a state of an
2. The guarantee by Congress of equal suffrage
to all loyal men at the south was demanded by
every consideration of public safety, of gratitude
ana or justice, and must be maintained. wnue tne
question of suffrage in all the loyal btates prop
erly belongs to tho people of those States
3. We denounce all forms of repudiation as s
National crime, and the National honor requires
tne payment ot tne puonc maeotcaness in tne ut
most good faith to all creditors at home and a
broad, not only according to the letter, but the
spirit of the law under which it was contracted
4. It is due to the labor of the nation that tax
ation should be equalised and reduced as rapid'
ly as the national faith will permit
5. The national debt, contracted as it has been
for the preservation of the Union for all time to
come, should be extended over a fair period for
redemption, and it is tne duty of Congress to re
duce the rate of interest thereon whenever it can
honestly be done.
6. That the best policy to diminish our burden
of debt, is to so improve our credit so that capi
talists will sees: to loan us money at loner rates
of iuterest than we now pay, and must continue
to pay so long as repudiation, partial or total,
open or covert,is threatened or suspected.
7. The Government of the United States should
be administered with tho strictest economy, and
the corruptions, which have been so shamefully
nursed and fostered by Andrew Johnson, call
loudly for radical reform.
H. We profoundly deplore the untimely and
tragic death of Abraham Lincoln and regret the
accession of Andrew Johnson to the Presidency,
who has acted treacherously to the people who
eleoted him and the cause he was pledged to sup
port, has usurped high legislative and judicial
functions, has refused to execute the laws, has
used his high office to induce other omcors to ig
nore and violate the laws, has employed his exe
cutive cowers to render insecure tha nronertv
peace liberty and lite of the citizen, has abused
the pardoning power, has denounced the national
legislature as unconstitutional, Has persistently
and corruptly resisted, by every measure in his
power, every proper attempt at the reconstrue
tion of tbe states lately in rebellion, has perver
ted the public patronage into an engine of whole
sale corruption, and nas been jtrstiy impeached
for high crimes and misdemeanors, and properly
pronounoed guilty thereof by the vote of thirty-

10. Of all who were faithful in tho trials of the
late war, there were none entitled to more espe
cial honor than tbe brave soldiers and seamen
who endured the hardships of the campaign and
cruise, and imperilled their lives in the service
of the country. The bounties and pensions pro
vided by law for these brave defenders of the na
tion are obligations never to be forgotten, lhe
widows and orphans of the gallant dead are the
wards of the people a sacred legacy bequeathed
to the nation protecting care.

added so much to the wealth, development of re
sources and increase of power to the nation,
should be fostered and encouraged by a liberial
and just policy. .
