From the Philadelphia Ate ]
Col. Davis was born in Bucks county,
in this State, and is the only son of Gen
eral John Davis, who formerly represent
ed that district in Congress. He was edu
cated at the Military Academy at Nor
wich, Vermont. Immediately on gradu
ating, he was appointed Professor of
Mathematics and Military Instructor at
the Military Academy at Portsmouth,
Virginia. lie remained there two years,
when he returned home and studied law,
and was admitted to the bar. Thence he
entered the law school of Cambridge Uni
versity. At this time lion. Caleb Cushing
was raising his regiment to go to Mexico,
with•which country the United States was
then itt war. Mr. Davis shut up his law
books and enlisted us a private in Captain
Crowningshield's company. Isis know•
ledge of military affairs soon brought him
into notice. He was commissioned,- a
lieutenant, and then made adjutant of
the regiment. When Colonel Cushing
was promoted in the field, Lieutenant
Davis was offered the msjnrity of the reg
iment, but being tendered the position of
nid-decamp and acting assistant adjutant
general on the staff by Gen. Cushing, he
accepted the latter. lie served on the
upp?r line under General Taylor for some
time, and then was transferred with his
brigade to the lower line to reinforce
General Scott. He discharged the duties
of quartermaster for Patterbon's division
on the march from Vera Cruz to the city
of Mexico. In the winter of 1848 be was
promoted to a captaincy by an order of
General Scott, and as such served to the
end of the war.
On his return home in July, 1848, ho
opened an office in Doylestown, and com
menced the practice of thelaw. In Sep
tember, 1853 President Pierce appointed
him District Attorney of the United
States for the Territory of New Mexico,
and he crossed the great plains in Novein•
ber, of that year, and took up his resi
dence in Santa E. The District Attor-
ney was obligati to ride ttie circuit, a
thousand miles in extent, twice a year,
and cross the grand desert, known as El
Jornab del ifuerto the Journey ofpeach,
where for a distance of ninety miles water
is found iu only oae place, and that col
lected from rains. The country was in
fested by hostile Indians, hnd the travel
was dangerous. Captain Davis made this
trip in the spying of 1854 in company with
tour members of the bar and the Marshal.
In the summer of that year he was ap
pointed Secretary of the Territory, which
position he held until November, 1857,
when he resigned and returned to - Bucks
county. Meanwhile he was acting Gov
ernor and Superintendent of Indian af
fairs for over a year. While he resided in
Santa Fe he edited and published the
Santa Fe Gazette, in English and Spanish,
over two years. Colonel D.ivit theta cross•
ed the great plains that stretch from the
Missouri river to the Rocky Mountains
several times, and met with numerous
a iveutures. On one occasion he was re-

turning to the States in charge of a lady,
hor servant and child. When the little
party he was traveling with was some four
hundred miles out.. and on the Connaaron
river, they were pounced upon by a war
party of mounted Arrapahoe Indians and
made prisoners. When the Indians were
seen approaching, the females and child
were covered up with blankets in one of
the wagons, as their presence always in
creased the hostility of the savages. The
teams were stopped and the men obliged
to get out of the wagons. The Indians
sat down on the ground in a circle and
held a council of war, to determine the
fate of the prisoners. Finally the chief
agreed to let them go on condition that
they would divide their Provisions, which
being considered a cheap ransom, was ao•
cepted, and the party was released. At
_this time there was no friendly assistance
nearer than three hundred miles.
In the spring of 1858, Mr. Davis pur
chased the Doylestown Democrat, one of
the very largest country newspaper "es•
tablishments in the country, and since t.
then has been engaged in the profession
of a public journalist. The rebellion of
1861 found him busily engaged on his
paper. When the insurgents fired on
Sumpter he threw down the pen and took
up the sword. ,He raised the first armed
men in his county and Congressional dis
trict to su.tain the Government. He
called a meeting in the Court House on
his own responsibility, organized it, took
the rostrum, and in a short speech called
for volunteers. In two hours sixty had
enrolled their names, and in two days one
hundred and fifty had offered their ser
vices. •He went to Harrisburg with his
company, and was thence sent to York.
Here he was offered the lieutenant col
onelcy of the 16th regiment, but would
not leave his company. and• was then
transferred to the 25th, Pennsylvania reg
iment., in which he served as Captain
through the three month's campaign, on
the Upper Potomac, under Gen. Patter
son. Capt. Davis was ordered to guard a
six gun battery Irom York to Washing
ton, and his company ywas the first'body
of troops which passed through Baltimore
after the bloody riot of April 19th. His
men.were hooted at and stoned, and they
sat oh the trucks, with theirrifies cocked,
ready to resist attacks, but none were
Captain Davis was mustered out of ser
vice the last ot July. In August he went
to Washington and again tendered his
ser vices to the Secretary of War. He
was immediately authorized to raise a reg
iment of infantry and a battery ot artil

and gave all his time and thought; to his
military duties. He did not resume the
charge of his piper again until the lit of
January, 1865.
C slonel Davis marched to Washingtoe
the first of November ; and many of oar
citizens remember the splendid appear
ance of his regiment as it marched through '
the city. In less than a week, he was
placed in command cf a brigade and or
dered to organize and discipline it. Bafore
he had been a month at Washington, be
submitted to Gen. McClellan, then Cam
mender-in-Chief, a- plan of barracks to
winter his brigade:in, which was approv
ed, and he was ordered to build them.
They were erected on Meridian Hill and
the nark was entirely done by his itol
diers. For the last three years they h*ve
been known as "Carver General Hospi-,
t al." Colonel Davis took his brigade to
the Peninsula in March, 1862, sad com
manded it until the last of April, when'''.
was _relieved by General H. M. Naglee:
Ho then returned to his regiment. His
regiment participated in all the opera—
tions in the campaign on the Peninsula,
and with the 52d Pennsylvania regiment
led the celebrated reconnoisance from
the Coickahominy to within four miles of
Richmond. Colonel. Davis, with his reg
iment, brought; on the celebrsted melon
of Fair Oaks, the first of the series of
bloody encounters around the Confeder
ate capital. Here he lost forty per cent.
of . his men, and received a painful wound,
a rifle ball penetrating his left elbow, at
the joints. was also struck by a spent
musket-WI, in the left breast. He was
laid up by his wound two months, and
rejoined his regiment at Harrison's Land
ing, seven days before his leave of ab
sence expired, and when he could not
mount his horse without assistance, When
the Army of the Potomac returned' , to
Washington his division (Peck's) was i.e
ta,ned on the Peninsula, and Colonel
Danis was placed in command of the hit
portant post at Gloucester Point, garri
soned by a small brigade. He put the
extensive works there in complete repeir.
In December of that year he was transfer
red to North Carolina, when General Fps
ter placed •him in command of his old
brigade again, which he retained, with ,an
occasional 'change of regiment, until near
ly the end of his term of service. His
command was transferred to South Caro
lina, in January, 1863, with the army that
was intended to attack Charleston. He
commanded a brigade, or division, in the
subsequent operations before that city.
He was with General Terry in the action
on James Island, July 16th; he was next
placed in command of the important post
of Folly Island ; thence transferred to
Morris Island, and assisted in the siege
Operations against Wagner and Sumter.
His brigade was one of the two selected
by General Terry to make the final tumult
on Fort Wagner, the 7th of September.
From the,StOof January the 24th
of April, 1864, t,olonel Davis was in com
mand of the operations on Morris Island
against Charleston, the only place in the
department where active hostilities were
constantly carried on. This was at a time
when there were eleven geoWoral officers
in the department. Tne fact that Colo.
nel Davis was entrusted with- the com
mand of the post of honor, gives evidence
of the great confidence his superior 're
posed in him. From Morris Island he
Was transferred to the command of the
important D.strict of Hilton Head, ex
tending from St Helena sound to, and
including, Fort Pulaski, at the mouth of
Savannah river, a distance of sixty miles.
When a combined attack was made on
Charleston, in July, 1864 Colonel Davis
commanded the first brigade of Hatch's
division. He led the advance up John's
Island to within sight of the city. On the
morning of the 6th, while examining with
a glass, a rebel battery that was playing
upon his men, he was struck on the right
hand by a shell, which carried away the
fingers and tore the hand terribly. Of
course he is made a cripple for life. Atter
he had so far recovered, from i his wound
as to be able to do light duty, he was
made President of a general court mar
tial, in Philadelphia, where he remained
until he was mustered out of service, the
first of October. 1864.
Calonet Davis was never promote&the
reason of weich the War Department 'can
give. lie entered the service with more
knowledge of, and experience in, military
metiers than ninety-nine out of every
hundred officers in the volunteer army.
He has in his possession the very highest
testimonials from his superior officers, and
was frequently recommended for promo
tion, lie was honorably mentioned in
orders for his conduct at Fair Oaks. After
the fall of Wagner and Sumter, the Ad
jutant General of the army wrote to Gen
eral Gilmore, and requested him to report
the names of the officers of his corps who
deserved promotion. In the reply the
naMe of Colonel Davis stands number
two, but there it ended. The others, we
believe, were all promoted. Four out of
five of the regimental commanders in
Colonel Davis' brigade, and of ,coune his
juniors, were made generals. We are
speaking of facts in this connection, not
finding fault. It may be entertaining at
some time to ask the reason.
The War Department would not Tiro

partment in Pennsylvania will probably
correct' executive errors so far as to elect
him Auditor General.

Oar candidate for Surveyor General,
Colonel John P. Linton, is a young•man
of about thirty-three years, a native of
Cambria county, a pure patriot, an honest,
upright man and a splendid representa
tive of the incorruptible mountain Dem
ocracy. He is the son of Robert P. Lin
ton, at various times sheriff of the county,
and grandson of Peter Levergood, Rig ,
who, many years ago, was Usual Commis
sioner of the Commonwealth. By profes
sion Colonel Linton is a lawyer, and before
the war be wiliest making his way to
eminence at the county bar. In general
intelligence he is far above the average,
and professionally he is well known among
the legal fraternity for his acquirements.
lie was a student of Jefferson •College,
and subsequently studied law with and
became the law partner of Hon. Cyrus L
Pershing. This latter fact is of itself a
guarantee for his intelligence and ability.
When, in 1861,
,the war was brought
upon the country, be was it lieutenant of
a holiday volunteer company : - Mainly
through his efforts the orgs.nintion was
maintained, the company recruited to the
maximum number, and; upon the decli
nation of other officers, he was unani
mously proclaimed captain. With 'his
company he faithfully served during the
three months campaign.
At the termination of the three months'
Campaign, Cols. Linton, Campbell and
lif'Dermott at once recruited a regiment,
tine 551 b) and the officers were ,soot}
after, in August, 1861, commissioned,. ea

account of ill health, whioh, on February
Ist, 1863; advanced 3Gjor Linton to the
position of Lieutenant-Colonel.
The regiment was immediately assigned
to duty along the Baltimore lc Ohio rail
road. During the whole of the earl pe- .
riod-of .the war, when -the....mcnti. o fthe
Shenandoah Valley wail-he scene of con
stant alarms and raids, the 54th regiment
was stretched as a cordon of protection to
theilower t .tier_. of Peansylvanus counties.
We have not time nor space in this arti
cle to follow the regiment through its
later history ;. this will afford matter for
stebseotient' articles. It' is sufficient' to say
that 'after abnut two - yews - of detached
service the regiment was ordered to take
part in the active operations up the Val
ley. • During the most of this later, and
mate active period of gervice, Colonel
Campbell was away frog the roller—
in temporary command of a divisi nor
brigade, it is stated—so that Colonel Lin
ton had the honor of leading the 54th in
the battles of Newmarket and Piedmont.
And most bravely and gallantly he led
his regiment on those assatrons fields.
In both those battles fie was severely
wounded, hitt although for ti time cotn
pelted to go home for treatment, he
scarcely remained long enough Irons his
post to fully recover—so wedded was be
to his regiment, his duty and the serious
work required of him.
When the 54th was subsequently or
dered to the, front, before Petersburg,
Colonel Linton, we believe, still retained
direct command, and again led his men
in those hard-fought engagements which
proved so disasuona to that gallant old
regiment. . Hereafter we shall furnish a
detailed histciry of this regiment and its
anyunander in battle.
Colonel Linton is a candidate of whom
the Democracy tray well feel proud.
There is not positively a speck or flaw in
his history or chariuder. His claims do
not rest alone upod his military serr i ices.
He is a just man—en honest, an honora
ble and true min. He could not evade a
duty if he would and he would not if he
could. He never compromises with wrong,
and in the same manner that he perforins
his own. duty, be is exacting noon others
subject to his control. But, though firm
and unyielding where right and honor are
concerned, he is one of the racst temper
ate, genial and agreeable of men in all the
social relations. Should he be elected, the
people can rely upon having secured an
°Meer who will be an ornament and gain
to the State—one whom neither party nor
personal nor family friendship, can swerve
from duty.
Speech of Gen. Morgan
The following is the speech of Gen. G.
W. Morgan, accepting the Democratic
nomination for Governor of Ohio. It will
amply repay perusal : •
Me. President and Gentlemen of the Cbn
vention: Your committee has informed me
that the delegates from the people; here
assembled, have confided to my custody
during the present important contest, the
standard of constitational liberty. and I
appear before you, responsive to your call,
to ezpress my thapks, and to accept the
trust, and give my cordial indorsement to
the resolutions adopted by the Conven-
tion. j
It was my fortune, Mr. President, to be
associated for a short time in the field,
with the distinguished gentleman who is
the nominee of the Republican Conven
tion, and I entertain for him sentiments
of personal kindness and respect. ' But
our views
.on certain questious of vital
importance widely differ, and that differ
enoe of opinion ha, made us, without any
action on our part, opposing candidates
for the suffrages of our fellow citizens.
Our country is at peace. No one be
lieves that there is danger of civil com
motion or foreign war. Our gallant army
of white soldiers is being rapidly disband
ed, and they are welcomed to their homes
amid the grateful plaudits of alatriotic
people; but the fact that large Armes of
negro troops are retained. under arms,
should excite to vigilance and awaken the
anxiety of.every.citiaen.
The war is over, •the supremacy of our
flag is acknowledged over the entire Fed
eial domain ; there is cause for rejoicing
over the brilliant deeds of our soldfirs,
but. there is also mason for ►ve appre
becalm se to the. future.. The roar of
C11.1213013,' the clang of arms, and the shouts
of victory are no longer heard • the con
scription has ceased ; the hurried tread of
our young men on the pathway to war,
no longer startles our women and children
from their slumbers ;. but the Union, the
grand and only justifiable object of .the
war, the only object for which our soldiers
fought—the Union is not yet restored,
and a dangerous and powerful effort, is
being made by professed friends to ex
clude certain of the States from a repre-
sentation in the 'Federal Legiglature, and
thereby prevent the restoration
,of the
" Tho Union " does not mean any given
extent of territory held under arbitrary
rule, but is a • government of united States.
and until those &ate. sine represented in
the Federal • Legislature, as provided by
the Constitution, there can be no Union.
War has performed its part ; the soldier
has nobly discharged his duty, and let •us
take good care that his blood has not been
shed• in vain ; the insurrectionary armies
have surrendered their Munitions to the
Federal' authorities, end resumed their al
legiance to the government of the United
States, bat the restoration of the States
to their position • and rights under the
Constitution, is not yet achieved.
Upon this vital question, our fellow citi
zens of the Republican party are divided
among themselves, and a majority of that
party in Congress will oppose President
Johnson's plan t itr e the
to the
National Legislature the Senators and Re
presentetives from the' Southern States.
'fhe President declarer that he is in favor
of leaving the question of . reconstructing
their State Governments to the citizens of
the Southern Stites, in the exercise of
their Constitutional rights.
Oar government is not a consolidated
empire, like that of Russia, Austria or
Fiance ; nor a monarchy.. like that of
Great Britain ;, but we have a Union com
posed of States, with cio-ordifiate powers
and co-equal rights. - The States famed
the Union, and, in doing so, relinquished
certain rights which am distinctly speci
fied, and, the language of the Consti
tution. "all powers not delegated to the
United States, • nor prohibited . to 'the
-tates, are reserved to , the States or the
people." The Federal Government' de
rives its power from the Conttitution, and
possesses no lawful authority which is not
granted by that instrument. • Congress
may admit new States, bat has no author
ity to expel a Suite from the Union. Nino

The six New ' Enshold - 'States, with
population a half a million lees than that
of theaingle State of New , York, have
twelve Senators, while New York has
only two. And the State of Ohio has a
greater population 'than five of the New
,England States, and yet they have ten
-Sendtors while Ohio has but two. Nor
will we complain of the fact that. one citi
zen of New England exercise* five times
more representative power in the Federal
. f
Senate than does a citizen of Ohio,. unless $
that girest d•sparity of poster be used to ) -
subvert the very . rights which it ,was
created to protect. - But we are told that
the pople of certain of the Southern
States have been in open insurrection,
and t at thereby the States in which the
Insurgents lived have forfeited their po
litical- existence. It is true that the peo•
pie of the South, at first in small numbers,
afterwards a msjority, did rise in insur
rection. Bat have they-not been terribly
punished for this fault? la - their slaves
atone they lost two thousand million dol
lars. Their lands have been ravaged ; -
their houses have been burned, and the
region in which the war was waged has
been converted into a charred wilderness.
Can jhstice, nay not justice, but can hit- -
man vengeance demand more than this.?
And *here let us ask, * the provision in
the Constitution, which declares that - a
State shall forfeit its political existence—
its rights under the C on s titution, because
a portion of all its citizens have been in
surgents ? • No such power exists, and it
would he absurd to suppose that the Con
stitution would provide for its own over
throw by authorizing the disintegration of
the Union , ' but it does provide for the
solVtalls/ of insurrectioe and.dornestio
violence. Where individual persons have
done wrong they are amenable to the
civil laws, but the acts of individuals can- -
not forfeit the existence of States, nor
confer powers upon the Federal Govern
ment unknown to the Constitution.
By what process is the•Union‘to'be rea- .
cored ? By what means are we again to
become countrymen in heart, as well as

Southern people ai enemies, can we ex
pect them to become friends? Would it
not be well to remember that civil wars
are like family feuds, and when, after
strife has ceased, and the cause of the dif
ficulty has been calmly considered, that
both parties are generally,found to be
more or leas in fault ?
Unselfish patriotism can restore the
Union, while selfish ambition may involve
the country in new horrors, and our in
stitutions in total ruin. It requires no
art, no mystery, no diplomacy to restore
the Union. We have but to say to our
countrymen of the South, Come, let us
again be friends : if in aught we have both
erred, then let us both profit by the ter
rible lesson of. the past four years, and if
only one has been" wrong, then let that
one be generously forgiven.

In most civilized countries, there are
inhabitants who are not citizens, but they
are fully protected by the laws ,of the
land in which they reside. There is no
hardship in limiting the negro to the
rights of an " inhabitant," and still less so,
when it is considered that for such servi
ces as be may have rendered iii the field,
he has been rewarded with freedom.
If the negroes so desire, they can re
main as "perpetual inhabitants, who,"
says Vattel, "are a kind of citizens of an
inferior order, and are united to the so
ciety without participating in all its ad
vantages." Maris, they would oe pro-

I am opposed to conferring the right of
suffrage on negroes in Ohio, or in the
South, now, or. at any future time, or
under any eircumetances.
In IMO, there were more than twenty
five thousand negroes in Ohio. and it is
believed that the nutxtbitr has been in
creased four-fold since Arb we

negroes in Ohio, and the 'African " de

General Cox, would becorne depopulated
—the "waifs and strays " be the
only inhabitants of the "dependency,"
and the great body of negroes would mi
grate to Obio, and other States where they
could enjoy social and political equality
with the white race. And is this the re- "
war d which our -brave soldiers are to re
ceive for all their perils in a hundred bat
tles, and all their toils in a score of cam
paigns ? Now that the war is over, shall
we say to the soldiers, as a reward for
your valor, we will reduce you to the level
of negroes? And our laboring men, are
they, too, to be brought into competition
with negroes at half wages, 'and be forced

The whole scheme of negro equality. is
chimerical and fraught with danger. We
have upon this continent examples of the
total incapacity of mongrel races for self
government. At the outbreak of the
American revolution, the population of
'the United States and, that of Mexico
were about equal—three millions each.
In either country there were three races,
the white, red and black. In the States
of the Union. free as well' as slaves, the
negroes have been kept in a condition of
subordination to the white race, and from
a comparatively small number, they have
increased to four million souls. While on
the other hand, the savage spirit of the
Indians spurned control, and a conflict
ensued which will only cease with the ex
istence of the red man.,
And what is the relative condition of
Mexico and the United States The for
mer has but five million inhabitants;
nearly one half of her territory has been
absorbed by the United States; and
is destitute of commerce, mapiffsetures
and schools; while'onr ships cover the
water of every sea ; our manufactures are
to be found in every mart of the habitable
globe, and every child In our land has the
opportunity to obtain a good English ed
ucation. Why this difference? The Unitzd
States and Mexico were alike colonized by
-Europeans. In the former the white race
preserved its integrity ; while the Span
iards, on the other hand, amalgamated
with the Indian and the iNegrO, and a
race of wretched M.oagrels, doomed to a
state of chronic anarchy, is tke reatilt. -
Some well meaning persons ask, "Might
it not be' better to give the negro the
right of suffrage, and have done with th e
vexed question ?"
