The Election of - United States Senator.
HARRISBITRG, Mardi 1 7 1855.
Ma. ZIEGLEII ,—Deca Sia.—l desire the
favor of occupying a small space - in your Pa
per,.for t ‘ he_, purpose of noticeiig the,unex
pected ungentlemanly.att-d.clt made upon
my character, in the Pennsylvanian of the
28th ult., -relative to the election of : United
States Senatoi-: I have peVerseeirthe editor
of that paper. I do. not wish to see him:—
I know him only; throug,h. the medium . of the
vile slanders arid .rakish billingsgate which,
for. the last fwe years, have blackened the
columns .of the' Pennsylvanian, and depraved
and gangrened the public miry!. I desire to
know by ‘v.hat authority the Pennsylvanian
arrogates to itself the prerogative of control
ling my vote, or deciding for- whom it shall,
be cast,? • •By - what power does it decide
who are, -and who are not to be Voted 'forT-L-
Freiri what source does it 'derive omnipo
tence? At What period did -it becoine reli
gious? What extraordinary religion doe's it
profess, and w-hat holier creed than the Bible
has• it adoptid as its rule of faith ?'
But, Mr. Editor ; I desire for one moment to
call the attention of the public to my vote
for 'United States - Senator and to the course
of the Permsg/vania. [ will very briefly re
late the facts. Before I left home to attend
the present session of the Legislature, my
constituents , requested me, under the circum
stances,' to cast-my vote for SIMON CAMERON,
in .case there' was a. chance for his success.
If I thought at any time that circumstances
would justify me in casting my vote in any
partidular direction; I . was instructed to fol
low the dictates of my own judgment. I
came here ; and after looking over the whole
ground, became satisfied that the party with
whiCh I acted could' accoinplish . ne positive
victory.. , ttot. vote ,in caucus for
CHARLES R. BUCK &piny; but alter he.receiv
ed the nomination, I sustained him at the
first meetinoeof the Convention. Before the
day arrived for the second meeting ; the edi
tor of the only .I)emocratic,paper in my dis
trict came to
_Harrisburg, with a request from
a large and !mist respectable number of my
constituents ; "that' when I became satisfied
that the election of, the caucus nominee.of
the. Democratic party ,was not within the
range of probability, I should east my vote,
undr the circumstances. for Sproil
ROM." The editor to whom I have alluded
accompanied me to the. Hall of the House,
and sat by ray side at the last meeting of the
Convention. When my waine was called,
I rose and stated the above instructions to
the' Couv'ention, anti voted accordingly.—
Now, sir, this is 'precisely what I did, and
this fair and proper transaction ; after being
buried a single night in the miasma and pit,
tridity of 46 South Third street ; Philadelphia
is exhumed by the 'PennsylCanian and dis
covered to be',itreason," the crime of which
should become familiar to every mind. Now,
I ask the editor of the Pennsylvanian if he
does not feel rather silly when he looks at
that enression. I wonder if I was bound
to start off to Philadelphia to hunt up BILL
RICE, or somebody in his employ ; and ask
them how I might vote,
lam clearly of opinion to-day, that the
tine - policy of the "old line'! Whigs and
Democrats is to elect Sir.roN ,CAMERON. It
may be said that by so doing we gain nosh-
lug. It is no victory for us. But in the
language of nay instructions, "we inflict de
feat, schism and confusion upon the opposi
tion." And 1. here assert that this is the de,
liberate opinion of. one half-the Democrats
who voted for BUCKALEW, and that they
have so expressed themselves. But suppose
this opinion to be an error, does it follow'
that eeery one entertaining it is corrupt and
traitorous ? This is the old tactics of the
Pennsylvanian. Every man who refuses
not only to coy, at. every breath. BUCHANAN,
Foresny & Co., but also to oppose or support
cvely one whom they indicate, must be bran,
ded a traitor and apostate. 1 have been an
Ott varcring friend of BUCHANAN'S all my
life, but I will not submit to be goaded into
the support of any man because he belongs
to a certain faction. This tyrannical and
jesuitical mode of endeavoring to force men
to vote at all times, and under an circum
stances, as they may be told to do, has done
more to destroy the Democratic party than
the efforts olits open foes. I would suggest
to the Pennsylvanian, that should it continue
a little longer "reading Democrats out of the
party," there will be none left. It would be
a much easier task for it to name who may
stay in the party.
I will turn the attention of the reader to
the public position. of the Pennsylvanian.--
I will make two charges against its charac,
ter. The one involving its political and
moral honesty, the
: other is explained in the
civil and criminal laws attic! Commonwealth.
The first is—"that the Pennsylvanian,
while it makes loud professions of democra
cy, is se,:retly allied with the opposition, and
endeavet inr , to create disaffection in the par,
ty to which it purpot ts to belong." This is
a clear, distinct, and serious allegation. I
am prepared, at the present time, to prove its
truth. lam in possession of the testimony.
I know the Pennsylvanian may affect to
sneer at the charge and answer it by vitu
peration and asseverations. But I propose
to agree upon a committee of three Demo
crats, and if 1 do not prove to their entire
satisfaction : that this charge is well founded,
I will acknowledge myself a public defamer
of character. lam satisfied that this state-of
things has. not 'been long in existance, be,
cause it could not, without having been,
exposed to the scorn and contempt of an in
dignant mid outraged public opinion. I as
sert that, at this moment, the press is owned
and controlled by the opponents of the Dem
ocratic party, and 'that its whole tendency
and aim is to demoralize it, and finally de
stroy its identity. Whenever, for some time
past, an opportunity 'offered, it has struck at
the National administration at Washington,
under the specious pretence of ndisinterested
Immediately after the Democratic caucus
met and nominated CPIARLES R. BUCKALEW,
as their candidate for United States Senator,
the Pennsylvanian attacked the majority of
the caucus in the most violent and disgraceful
.manner. It charged them with havin "be,
.frayed''_ the party and the interests of the
State—with having blackened their own
memories, arid 'covered them with eternal in
infamy. It was even stated that the faces
of the "honest" - -portion of the caucus were
suffused with shame and mortification. And
: endeavor to convince its readers
that these charges were correct, it vomited
forth a - column of declarations of "facts,"
every line of which contained a base, inten
tional misrepresentation, a bold, unmitigated
lie. The whole scope
_of the article proves
the editor either an. arrant knave . or stupid
fool: He may chose the alternative. I have
received a number o f letters enquiring why
we "refused" to elect GEO. W. WOODWARD.
to the United States, Senate, when . the .Penn
sylvanian said we had the offer, and, my an
swer has .invariable been, "the. Verms.;ylvani
an is either a fool or a falsifier."
The next t hir,g we see the'Piniisjivani
an. it commences to abuse, by name, certain
members of the Democratic; party, and
_the apP6intees of Gov. Po.r.Locit.—
They are, ail right.' It thew flatters; and
cries -"all:honer to the know-Nothings" who
voted to please its views, notwithstanding it
said less than two, months previons that these
same men had-committed wilful and clelzber
ate.perjury when • they swore . .fidelity to the
Constitution. Mirabile dictu I But no mat-.
ter, the Pennsylvanian. will pardon them for
the small crime of perjury, and cry "alllion-:
or to you, My brothers." I have not time
to follow the details further, but I have shown
enough for my purpose.
A want of tithe will'also preclude the pos
sibility of my giving at, present, testimony
upon which I rest ' the second charge. I
will barely state. the proposition, "that the
Pennsylvanian - was . pecuniarily interested in
the passage of a bill, Which was befoie the
last Con g ress , and that its position was - gov,
erned by that interest." Now, I suppose,
that in any body else this would have been
considered and characterized .brihery.-.-
Prove the same thing 'upon a member of the
Legislature, and he would be expelled for
bribery. I ask the Pennsylvanian not to an
swer these charges by spitting.forth columns
of wordy, base, insipid
. trash, Which chagrin
and excitement may extort from its perfidi
ous .acid barren brain, but to be a ma".—
Agree to the appointment of an investigating
committee, and I will Substantiate all that I
have alleged. But if you refuse, confess to
the world the magnitude of your guilt and
the treachery of your heart—that.for months ;
your moral crimes have been etching away
your conscience and -devouring your soul.—
Such conduct as yours, when held up to the
cold and formal gaze of-American patriotism
and democracy, must subject the culprit to
the execrations and maledictions of all.
'M . O. M. STOCK DALE.
,From the Boston Post,
Lieut. C-mi. Scott Bombards a Whig
and Know-Nothing Falsehood
Hon. William S. Durnell, the anti-slavery
lnow-Nothing member of Congsess from
Massachusetts, having asserted, in his lec
tures in Cheshire minty, 'that the-Catholic
vote was offered to Gen. Scott - at the late
Presidential election, several persons who
heard him determined to get at the truth of
the matter, and therefore addressed e letter
to the distinguished veteran, who returned
the following reply. It-is a clincher :
NEW Yo it, March, 1 1855.
GENTLEMEN; I have just received, through
the Hon. Mr. Hibbard, M. C., at Washing
ton, your joint letter, _ dated the 24th ult., in
which you say to me, that, in some political
addresses, recently delivered in your neigh
borhood and in your presence, the speaker de
clared substantially, that itt the last Presi
"Bishop Hughes, of New York, proposed
to Gen. Scott to sell the Catholic rote, who
hesitated to reply; when the proposition was
made to Gen. Pierce, and accepted, and a
Jesuit was placed at thehead of the Post Of
fice Department. That Bishop Hughes' de
mands were assented to by
. the party to
whom he first proposed, except that it de
manded a c abinet officer, upon which you hes
itated,'and the proposition was made to Gen.
Pierce. and he assented.
And your letter to me' is thus concluded:
"Believing the statement to be false and
basely calumnious of the fair fame of yom,
selfand the other distinguished gentlemen
implicated thereby, we would repeetfully re
quest of you to inform us, at your earliest
convenience whether the statement of Mr.
so far as it relates to you; is true."
I hasten to say that the statement or state
ments I have quoted from your letter, as
above, are in respect to myself, ABSOLUTE
LY FALSE, and I have no doubt they are
equally so in respect to my political friends
and opponents in the canvass alluded to.
1 remain, gentlemen, with great respect,
your obedient servant, WINFIELD SCOTT.
Unwise and unjust
We have heretofore said nothing upon the
subject of the late excitement relative to the
election of United States Senator, but the bit
ter and scurrilous attacks in The Penns:y/1:a
-nin12 on a number of gentlemen whom we
know to be worthy of the esteem end confi
dence of the citizens of the entire Common
wealth, impels us to vindicate their charac
ters against the foul aspersions that have
been heaped upon them through the columns
of that paper. The charge that Mr. -Hoge is
a drunkard, is a gross - and wicked calumnity.
We have the pleasure'of Mr Hoge's acouain,
Lance, and regard him as an honorable and
exemplary gentleman, whose Private charac
ter is above
,reproach. We have also the
pleasure of being acquainted with several
other gentlemen whom the Perinsytuantan,
has denounced in a most unjust manner.--
Mr. Piatt of the Senate, Mr. Stockdale of the
lionse, who have also been villainously as,
sallied, are both gentlemen of honor, and
their 33emocracy as orthodox as their defa
We had supposed that the Pennsylvanian,
after emptying its vials of wrath upon the
head of Gen. Cameron, would be contented,
and withhold any unjust imputations respec,
ting his friends. . What better could either of
the gentlemen so scurilously spoken of - have
done Gen Cameron done as much for the
interests of Pennsylvania while in the Uni
ted States Senate as any Pennsylvanian who
ever filled that honorable position. There
was no possible chance for the election of
any other Democrat than Gen Cameron.—
Then what better we ask could they have
done ? We regard the democracy of the
Demacrats who supported Gen. Cameron as
pure as those who stood out against him, and
their conduct much more politic. Messrs.
Hoge, Platt, Cresswell, Stockdale, and oth
ers who; supported Gen. Cameron, are respon.
sible only to their constituents for their
course, which we believe is fully endorsed
by their constituency. .We Ipipw that our
Senator, Mr—Creswell, and - alsO that of our
Member, Mr. King, have the almost unani
mous approbation of their districts.—Johns
