    scene of fearful blight and desolation.
We are told in a tone of rejoicing, by
certain distinguished gentlemen, that in
the South, the conflict of races has already
begun and that our own race will be driv
en to the wall—that is; be exterminated
And that. in the new order of things, a
negro aristocracy will be created, and
that negroes will occupy seats on the Su
preme bench, and in the halls of the Na
tional Legislature! What is this proposi
tion ?
That six millions of our own race, mein
women and children, shall be t rampled
into the earth , in or ler that an ar istocracy
of four million negroea shall be establish
ed upon their graves!
And can it be-that a policy so mon
strous in itself, so atrocious in its concep
tion—a policy equally inhuman, uncon
stitutional and unchriatian, can receive
the sanction of the enlightened citizens
of Ohio? Can it be true that the p , ople
of Ohio desire the extermination of our
countrymen at the South, nod that the
black man's home shall be built tenon the
white man's grave? Forbid it Heaven !
And in the name of our country ; in thn
name of civil liberty; in the name of all
we hold most dear on earth, I invoke the
spirits of the mighty dead— of Washing
ton and Adams, of Franklin and of Jet
ferson, of Hamilton and of Madison,
against the horrid profanation against
humanity, against the Coratitution,
against the Divine spirit of Christianity
Although I commenced my military ca
reer 'at fifteen years of age, I was taught
from my earliest youth to revere the cause
of civil liberty, and I view the continued
suspension of the writ of habeas corpus,
and the trial of citizens by military com
missions, in direct violation of the Consti
tution, and as a dangerous infringement
of the liberty of the people.
The National debt is estimated at four
thousand million dollars. and Gen. Cox
proposes the purchase of a district of coun •
try containing thirty million acres of land,
in order to create a " negro dependency."
I am wholly opposed to that or any other
scheme calculated to inc-ease the bur•
then. of the people. and am in favor o
an equitable system of taxition, and of
reducing the expenses of the Federal and
State Government to the lowest practica
ble point consistent with necessary ex
. Mum.
And now, Mr. President, should it he
the will of the people to confide the affairs
Of the State to the caTe of the Democratic
party, what is to be our policy ?
Balieving that governments are insti
tuted not for the benefit of a party, but
for the protection and common good of
the _whole people, the Democratic party
will be *equitable and jist in the adminis
trition of public affairs. Magnanimity is
good policy in peace as in war, and a party
incapable of magnanimity is unworthy of
being trusted with power. One wrong
does not justify another, and he is an un
wise politician who would demand public
vengeance for-private injuries. Our only
desire is the maintenance of constitution
al law, so that the blessings of civil liberty
may be secured for ourselves, and for our
felloW citizens of all parties. And should
the people of Ohio call me to the perform
ance of the responsible duties of the chief
magistrate, it will be my earnest study to
discharge the obligations incident to that
poaition, with strict impartiality ; and to
the full extent of WY offi •ial ability to
secure the rights of civil liberty to every
citizen of the State. Ours is a land of law
and the magistrate is not less bound to
respect its provisions than is the private
citizen, and if he violates the fundamental
law - which he is sworn to support, he
should be held to a stricter accountability
than he who assumes no such additional
We are entering upon one of the most
important political campaigns ever known

my fortune to see many engagements on
the battle-field, but this is the first time
in my life that I have been put at the

not boastful, I must gay that. I never knew

spoken of the getlant men who went forth
to sacrifice life and lireh in defense of the
Constitution and the Union—but not of

battling in the field there was another
army at home, of civilians, patriotic and
devoted to the principles of the old flag.
battling for constitutional liberty. W hat
we want is for those two armies to join
hands and hearts, and beat down the
hordes. I would say to soldiers and civil
ians, be friends ; let no petty jealousies
mar our glorious cause. Remember we
are brethren and friends, and upon us,
soldiers and citizens, rests the well bring
of this land.
Returned Soldiers
It seems but yesterday that loyal ladies
and gentleman, if we may use the exprep-
Ilion, were sending mittens, flannel shirts,
religious tracts, Abolition newspapers and
election tickets to the plor soldiers. The
mittens and flannel shirts were all right
The religious tracts; were all right, and
were very handy for the soldiers to have
at certain times. The Abolition news
papers were all right, for they were load
ed to the muzzle with denunciations
against Democrats, and their mi-sion was
to incite mobs, personal violence and hate
for all who differed in opinion with the
editors thereof. The election tickets were
all right, for they were lists of the names
of loyal cowards, who dared sot go to war,
but were willing to stay at home, get in
office, and assess taxes on the property of
the soldiers in the field to raise bounty
that their precious selves might be safe.
Of course thin. was all right, for it was
sanctioned by the great and good Lincoln,
and was the only means certain poverty
stricken laborers in this worldly vineyard
bed to obtain a living, and areas their
• families in stylish raiment, or pay for
beer, tangle•leg whiskey, or for the sup
port of shiftless editors who would die but
for the charity bestowed beggars.
It seems but yesterday all this was the
order of the day. Men wrote letters to
the dear soldiers and enclosed election
Pretty girls sold kisses for five cents
and embraces for a higher sum, all for
the poor soldier. Men and women cried
aloud, " give, or be damned !"—" Con
tribute, or be spotted !" "Endorse, or be
mobbed 1" And the poor people gave.
Now the soldiers, foot sore and weary.
come home. The men who have follow.
od the echoes of cannon down to the gates
of hell. The men who have bathed their
_feet in the blood of their comrades, as
they followed the glittering flashing sabre
up to shake hands with death. The men
who were food for powder and ball, for
sabre and bayonets, for horses' hoofs and
the tires of artillery wagons. The men
who were prayed for by hypocrites, an 1
preyed upon by army contractors, utiors t
and guerrillas of Heaven, known as army
chaplains, are now coming home. They
come foot sore and weary. They bring

backs. Their clothes are travel stained,

In search of their once earnesefriends!
They sit on the store steps, and in alley

and hard bread. roey have toyed with
death as a boy cracks a whip. They have

office holders might grew sleek and pros

The Democrats of Pennsylvania have
occasion to coneritulate themselves on
the s.lection of Wm. A Wallace. of Clear
field, as Chairman of the Sate Central
Committee for the ensuing year. Mr.
Wallace is one of the most energetic and
promising young D - 21nocr Its in the Com
monwealth, a man nf unimpeachable in•
tegrity and admitted talent. po seeming all
the necessary qualifications of boldness,
tact and good judgment to make him an
r,cceptable and successful reader. :As a
State Ssnator for three years, he won an
enviable reputation, being acknowledged
as one of the foremost men of that body.
Several of his public speeches, on impor
tant political issues, developed a clearness
f intellect and thorough knowledge of po
litical history thal were remarkable in one
of his years. The young Democracy have
in Mr. 'Wallace a gallant and reliable rep
resentative. lie will bring to the duties
of his position a zealous devotion to prin
ciple, a firmness of character, and a spirit
of activity that will open up a new era in
the management of our State politics.
The printing of the Legislative docu
mend of New Jersey brings to light a car
re'pondence which refl , cts great credit on
the intrepidity and firmness of the Demo
cratic Governor of that State. It appears
that last autumn, secretary Stanton, hay
ing fortified himself with the subservient
opinion of his man Friday, MIR, of the
-:Bureau of Military Justice," demanded
of Governor Parker the surrender, for
military trial, of a person under indict
ment by a Grand Jury of New Jersey, for
the crime of murder. Stanton supported
his demand by the example of the gov
ernors of other States (all Republican, of
course.) who had yielded obedience to
similar mandates. Governor Parker told
him in respectful but firm official lan
guage, that he should do nothing of the
kind ; that the prisoner was in the legal
custody of the sheriff, subject to the ac
tion of the Ciurt, and that all concerned
must await and abide that action. With
suck governors as Mr. Parker in all the,
States, a summary end would be put to
military interference with the regular
course of justice in the State tribunals.
Tile New York Tribune thinks " while it
pleasant to be sometimes in the majority,
it is braver and better to be right." All
honest men will subscribe t, the Tribune's
sentiment in every word and letter. The
deep settled conviction that they were
" right " is what has sustained the suppor
ters of Democratic principles through the
four years of war and unexampled detrac
tion. Feeling 'that their doctrines were
those of justice and truth—that they were
based on the only correct theory of our
institutions—they took their stand firmly
and manfuily, resolved that come what
might, they would remain steadfast to
their cause. The heroic attitude of the
Democratic party, in the midst of all the
discouraging events through which it has
parsed, is one of the noblest tributes to its

We trust our friends in no part of the
State will permit' themselves to be bstrsy
ed into a condition of inactivity. by the
impression that the election this fall is'ef
small consequence. So far from that being
the.caae, we regard it as one of the most
momentous campaigns that have ever
been held in Pennsylvania. Not to speak
of the great importance of the duties of
the Auditor and Surveyor General's offices,
and the need of having at their head men
of weight of character, integrity and
ity, the result of the contest this fall will
have a decided influence over the 'Guber
natorial canvass next year. If the Demo
crats carry the day now it will be taken
as an almost certain indication of success
next fall, and the unreliable element,
which always goes, with the strong side,
will hagten to array itself in the ranks of
thn Democracy. A United States Senator
is also to be elected by the next Legisla
ture, and every vote cast for Davis and
Linton will materially enhance the
chances hf having a Democratic majority
in that body. Furthermore, a Democratic
victory ! I n Pennsylihnia will strengthen
President .Johnson in his reconstruction
policy, and crush for all time to come the
mad and reckless determination of the
.Abolition leaders to place the ballot in
the ban& of the negroes.
We assure our brethren that the pros
pect is very far from being as gloomy as
ROMP appear to imagine. Everywhere in
the State the Democrats are a unit in
their party fidelity. Never was there
more harmony in our ranks than now,
more unyielding, courageous devotion to
principle, more enthusiasm for our ticket,
or more zeal to labor for its success. From
every section we hear that the Democracy
are organizing with renewed vigor, and an
almost unlimited confidence in victory.
The opposition, meanwhile, are distract
ed, led by quarrelling and unpopular
leaders, and lacking in all the elements of
strength which made them so powerful
during the war. They know that on the
home vote of the State last year they
were defeated, and remembering the large
number of soldiers who either did not
vote at all or voted against their convic
tions, they have just cause for distrust of
the result. The frantic appeals they make
to the loyalty of their followers, and the
disgraceful vituperation with which they
assail our candidates, betray the fear and
trembling with which they regard the
From this time on let the watchword
of all Democrats be " Organize and labor."
See that every township has its Democrat
ic club. Put sound Constitutional jour
nals into every man's hands. Hold local
meetings and challenge the Republicans
to discuss the issues at stake. Place first
class county tickets into the field. See
that Democratic voters are properly
wakened to the importance of the elec
tion. Visit the doubtful, and endeavor
to convince them of the truth of our prin
ciples. Have vigilance committees ap
pointed of the most faithful workers in
each district. If every man does his pro
per duty, we have no doubts of the

that by argument they could never over

been their labors in this line during the

of the vile means to which they have re
sorted from the days of Jefferson and
Jackson down to the close of the Buchan

success lies in misrepresentation and ca

how absurd a falsehood may be originated,

more than four yeitra, at work on the
shores of the western Mediterranean, if,
indeed, it has not already passed the
British channel and lods - ed itself in Lon

lence which rivals the story of its first via•

six hundred and eleven cases reported
down to the 11th of August, seven hun
dred and eighty-one had died, making
nearly fifty per cent. Of its fury in South

give us no adequ ate picture ; but a single
dispatch from San Severn, published in
tells a startling tale enough :
" From noon on the 9th to noon on the

Barcelona in Spain, and Marseilles in
France, are reported to have been attack

curred in all these places, the epidemic

alarming dimensions in any of them.
TLIE insignificant gang of extremists and
mischief•makers, who attempted recently
to disorganize the Democratic party of
Ohio, are receiving cold comfort on every
aide. We have not seen &solitary journal
from any quarter that endorses their move
ment. Their candidate for Lieut.• Go
vernor has withdrawn from the ticket, and
in his letter of declinatiOn tells the men
who nominated him that he "could not
excuse " himself were he " to permit the
use of his name, in any way, to distract
the Democratic party, and thereby con
tribute to a continuance of the destructive
and bloody rule of abolitionism."
IT appears by a tabular statement in the
New. York World, that the first three years
of the war threw back the commerce of
the United States just about 'as much as
it had been advanced by the preceding
ten years of peace. The last 'year of the
war, if its results could be fairly and fully
stated,- would show a much greater pra
portionate amount of commercial loss to
the country.

seems to have been written .expressly to

A MELTING of the leading politicians and
business men of Richmond was held last

intentions and desires of the Southern
people with respect to the new condition
of affairs in that section. . A series of res
olutions was adopted, of which the one
below contains the pith of the whole
From. what we can judo(' by numerous
letters and copious extracts in our ex
changes, we believe it to express, candidly
and reliably, the common sentiment in
the South :
_ Resolved, That the general temper and
disposition of the Southern people, in-,
eluding our own, are to accept and acqui t
esce in the results of the late sanguinary
struggle and to resume the duties of citi•
z'nship in the Union. That the men of
chnracter and ability who have hitherto
influenced public sentiment, neither ad
vise or intend anything different from the
discharge of their duties as citizens of the
United States, and are setting an exam
ple of full and ready submission to the
authority of its Government, and counsel
a full recognition of the facts of the actual
situation, including the accepted and ir
reversible abolition of slavery.
Gam. HarintaNer and Col. Campbell, the
Republican nomineei, are said to be brave
men. S.) are Colonels Davis and Linton.
They left their ordinary pursuits to fight
the battles of the Union. , So did Colonels
Davis and Linton. They are declared to
be warm friends of their country.' So are
Colonels Davis anal Linton. Here the
parallel ends. The two former are per
sons of very ordinary talent, neither of
whom were men of mark before the war.
Colonels Davis and Linton possess ac•
knovrledged ability, as well in civil
as in military dutiO3. They both occupied
prominent stations in life previous to the
war. Gen. llartranft sold his Democracy
for promotion ; Col. Davis remained faith
ful to his principles and was kept under
the ban of the War Departnient in conse
quence. On the score of fitness for the
Auditor Generalship, there can be no
comparison whatever between the men.
Tea mis-called Republican I:Arty appro
priates to itself the title of " Union." If
by this is meant that it is the peculiar
support of the Federal Union, the name is
a misnomer, ror it is' notorious that, in
connection with its allies, the secession
ists. it: did more towards dei!troying the
Union than any other class of men. It
proclaimed the Union valueless up to
1850, declared that it vr , s not worth pre
serving, would adopt, no measure to pre
vent civil war, and pow numbers in its
ranks all the original dimunionists of the
North. If by Union" is meant a con
glomeration of all the odds and ends of
every dangerous faction that has e'er had
an existence in America, ther. the name
is right, and we admit its appropriate
ness. It is indeed a " Union "—of every
thing that is leprous, unsavory and dis
creditable in our political history:
Tux old adage " a brave man is always a
modest man "wasnever better proven than
in the case of our candidate for Auditor

Democrat, of which he is editor, we find
the following allision to the honor con
ferred upon him by bis fellow Democrats:
It will be seen that the Convention nom

put them up at auction and sell them for
the benefit of the treasury. The people

Tax Democratic conventions of Berko,
Schuylkill and Northampton counties
have declared in favor of Hon. Heisler
Clymer as the nominee for Governor in
1866. The Lehigh county convention
presented the name of Hon. John D
Stiles, member of Congress from that dis
trict. Mr. Clymer and Mr. Stiles are
both able men and consistent Democrats.
Other candidates will undoubtedly receive
the support of their respective districts.
and the contest may become so spirited
as to remit in the choice of a new man,
as in 1863. .
Taz Democrats of the North-Eastern
portion of the State have originated a new

been holding what they call a "three days
meeting," at the West end of Nob Hour -
tain, near Orangeville, Columbict county.
A regular camp was provided, tents and
cabins erected, and speeches made every
day. Thousands atteuded daily, drawn
there by the novelty of the thing, and it
is believed that many were " converted "
to the glorious old faith. The plan is cer
tainly not a bad one, and we hope to see
it widely followed.
Burs vs. BLACK —The Democrats of
Beaver county have made up a ticket en

another private for Poor Director, a*Cor

"A Subscriber,". and perhaps well wishing
friend. writes us to inquire " why we ;Over
ties patent medicines." We will here and now
answer him that we do not. Our readers are
aware that we have for years excluded every
thing of the sort, and the only seeming excep
tion that we know of is the advertisement of
Dr. J C Ayer & Co.'s remedies, which now
stands in our columns. If our friend does
not know we will inform him that these are
not "patent" or even secret medicines Their
eoinposition has been made as publicly known
as any. other scientific fact, and has moreover
bad the approval of the highest medical au
therity In the land. - But what affords us per
haps still greater confidence in their worth is
ear personal knowledge of the man who makes
them and the results that have followed from
their use ; results as familiar to our readers
and the whole community as they are to our •
It has been our privilege to know Dr. Ayer
ever mince he graduated from the Penn. Uni.
varsity in the same class wit's one of our per
actual friends. nor have we ever ceased to
watch with interest his singu ar success in
and untiring devotion to the noble profession
he has chosen. If anybody can tell us what
we can advertise of more interest to our pa—
trons than remedies that will °tire them when
they are sick, we shall cheerfully give it the
benefit of our circulation.—Tamarora [lll.]
