--43 ad men have 'sought to in-'
Haute prejUdice against the draft.—
They have appealed to the basest !
passions, arrayed the poor against
the rich, and by every'posSible means
invited lawlessness and anarchy.—
The '6300 - exemption clause has been
perverted, and its aim, persistently
belied to weaken the loyal men of
Minable Means. .Let ;them remember
that but for the $3OO exemption clause,
every man would be compelled to
serve either inperson or by substitute;'
and the price of substitutes will in all
probability be three times the amount
fixed by Congress. So far from dis:
driininating against the poor man, it
effectually limits the price of exemp
tion, and defeats the shameless traffic
by. unprincipled brokers in substi
tuteS. The laW is, on this point, pre
cisely the State law of New York,
which was signedby Gov. Seymour,
and , is the law :of - civilized nations
where drafts are necessary. Let men
of all classes stand shoulder to shonl
' der in this work. Remember that it
is the sacred cause of Nationality we
are called upon to defend. It is the
cause of every man---the hope of ev
ery household—the last refuge of
civil and religious liberty; and it
appeals to the approving judgment
and the earnest effort of every patri
ot and Christian. Let no loved ones
learn the cruel lesson of want because
their protector is defending the cause
of a common country. Let no sorrow
stricken home of the bereaved mourn
alone for their heroic dead. Their
wants, their sorrows, are endured for
a,Nation's. existence, and they claim
a Nation's liberality, a Nation's sym
pathy, a Nation's gratitude !
- When the impartial historian shall
come to record the victories, defeats
and embarrassments of our Govern
ment in Ai- sacred effort to preserve
our free institutions, the most appal
ling chapter in his chequered pages
will be that devoted to the covert trea
son, the cowardly misrepresentation,
the base appeals to partizan preju
dices, and the thin-guise of hypo
erisy that presents cold professions of
li)yalty, to, a loyal people, while
neath rankles the deadliest hatred to
the preservation of our na ' = a *ty,
save upon the altar of dishonor.
The Democratic State Convention
- held its sessions at Harrisburg, while
armed, traitors reveled in the Cum
berland Valley, plundering our people,
holding possession and exhausting the
wealth Of our towns and districts;
insolently defying alike National and
State authorities, and inflicting upon
the fair fame of our Commonwealth
the dishonor of rebel occupation of
our soil. 'Some of the delegates in
ayr,tendance were fugitives from their
homes, and e their families and property
at the mercy, of the minions of.xaur
derous treason. The people of - the
State_were flying to arms in obedience
to the call of the proper authorities;
and the measured tread of recruits
was unceasingsaromid the halls where
in were congregated the magnates of
DefilLeracy struggling to obtain the
power and spoils, of oleo. -
The main- duty of that Convention
was to nominates candidate for Gov

charged with - the' maintenance -of
peace, order -and security of the citi
zens • and the honor of the State, and
to 'declare the principles and policy
upon which the Government shall be
preserved and-' administered;'''How
that duty . .was discharged, let - the
record answer. A man was presented
for Governor who has yet to utter
the first earnest word of encourage
ment to the Government in :preserv
ing 'the life of the Republic' against
unholy treason; tend whose every de
clarations upon the subject deny the
power of the Nation to meet armed
traitors with arms, and thus• assert
its inherent right to live. • A platform
was pregented by Hon. F. W. Hughes,
who signalized' his Ale,votion to the
Government, when the war, 'emin.-
inenced ) by tendering PermsylVaUia
as a free offering to those who have
by wanton, wicked war, made millions
mourn. Avowedly a friend .of the
deadly foes of the Republic, he could
do no less, in a loyal State; than guise
treason in every resolution, and at
tempt to poison the - whole fountain
of honest devotion to the "cause, of a
common country.
That he succeeded well, is .a pain
ful, palpable truth. Of the eleven
resolutions adoped, not one—not so
much as a single sentence or line,
.breathes the spirit of an earnest, lion
est,friend of the preservation of our
Nationality. In reckless misrepre

errors of the administration; in -the
denunciation of every measure adopt

they 'are wanting—sadly, *holly

We ask every man, of whatever pop
litical attachment, to peruse carefully
and ponder well the_ platParm from
which Judge Woodward hopes to
climb into the ExecutiVe chair. Rad
Seymour's speeches and platform last
fall been half so frank in espousing the
cause of our country's foes, he would
not have been clothed with the pow

at the feet of a murderous, plundering
mob; and if Woodward can be suc

be the ruling power of the land. An

treason will compass the entire gov
