    . they know the curses, the c',damitiea and
the miseries which would come upon the
country if that Union was once broken'.
and they have no desire to be separated
from us. They desire to be sharers with
us in a corn-lion destiny, a common come
try and a common future. They pledge
them s elves in every •conceivable way by
whi c h men can bind themselves, and I
say that their interests, if nothing else,
would impel them to stand by the Union
and to be a part of it. But, gentlemen,
- let me warn you. I told you before they
were of our blood, of our 4 race, the same
Manner of,men as we are, and they have
_never been - known to wear a yoke any
longer than he who put it on- had strength
to keep it there. It we deny them the
_right to be beard in the national councils,
they will be right and we will. be wrong ;
and they will have plenty. of friends to
' espouse their cause, just as we had before
the war. (Applause.) Doyen know that
France proposed to England to recognize
the Southerri Confederacy ? Suppose they
had, what then would have been the re
sult of the war, with all our means and all
our resources and the bravery and skill
of our armies? If the blockade could have
been broken i the result of that .contest
would have been exceedingly_ doubtful,
end I think the better opinion now is that
we would have failed.. Did see succeed. un
til we got New Orleans and Charleston.
and until our blockade was perkot and
complete? England refused to.acknowl
edge the independence of the Confeder
acy. Why? Because they made the cor--
ner stone of it eirossy, and the English
-people were to.a man opposed to slavery,
and they would not' permit t heir govern
ment to jhin in any enterprise which
" would perpetuate that institution. Slavery
has gone— t does not exist now. There
can be no retence of that kind ndw for
avoiding a - entry upon an enterprise of
that kind And do. you know that Eng•
land, duri 'it the war, paid fifty millions
to keep her Lancashire poor from story- 1
ing, because she could not run her 'mills,
and by charity she raised that money to
save her suffering poor. Hence it- is a
great matter for England to get cotton—
it is a reat matter for France to get cot
ton. Cotton is_ one jof the commodities
the world must have, 'and when that cot
ton field is shut up down there it is felt
everywhere. There is-no spot upon the
earth 10 much coveted- as thcsa cotton
fields of the South by Eutor estn nations.
The South appeal to us for common
. justice and common rights. They appeal
- to us for their rights under the Constitu
tion and laws, and we deny- them. The
governments of the states of the-South
are noir as perfect as the government of
Pennsylvan.a. They are
-perfectly able to
- run alone outside of the Union: • If Penn
sylvania was out of - the rchan her State
government is as - perfect as the govern
ment- of Great Britain. - The general gov
ernirtent only affects our foreign relations
and our relations with the other States ;
if the had no relations with the other
States, her government_ is yet complete,
and if sh was thrown out there would be
--- iRi nring_to prevent her from sending am
bassadors abroad end exercising all the
rights of sovereignty. • •
These'States are distinct, Independent
governments now; able to make treaties,,
stud if you persist in this treatment of
them there is nothing to.prevent them
from making an alliance with England or
France, offensive. and defensive, and then
instead of letting them come it, they
would reluseio come, and then you would
be compelled to get an &men:ln:lent to the
Constitutiop cotopelling them to send
members to Con'ress. You have shut the
doors in their a ces , you have refused
them admissie nd they have accepted
ri c
your-•terms. andlhey,bave stood out, and
what then ?. You are put to the necessity
of another war, - and what fOr ? Would
that be_a . war' to compel them to come
Sack into the 'Union ? How would you
, ask your soldiers to go into another war ?
I would like to See a Radical look a set
'did. in *the face and ask him to go down
and whip them over again. He would say,
Wile l• spend two or three years of my
life in fighting them, and when they come
in and are willing to come inito abide by
the lawrij yet yoti will not let them to come
- in, and I must go and whip . them hick
again I and,
would' like ••to,know when it is
going tO end; for you do not want to ex
terminate them. When,we made this war
we did it to restore the Union, yet you
will not allow it to be restored. (Ap- .
plsuse.) , ,
There aro two great parties in the
-North. and I believe there is but' one in
the South, and that one is the,party that
, was represented at the Philadelphia Con.
, vention the other day; (applause,) a party
of earnest, Sorrowful, serious men who had.
lost all their Elie, All their vivacity; and,
`lciest strange to say, in that Convention
' all were &silents of _dispensing with
~,veechifying. liTo have assembled a con'
-, tiltion of thitt kind ten years at any
irt, on this cionthaeni, filled. with such
eloquent men, men of such distinction,
such ambition, such desire to show before
the public, you could not hate adjourned
it before ten weeks. There would-have
been ten thousand speeches, but 'ln mat
convention where' everything was solemn
',find still as a church, there was no display
of 'that which is called oratory. - There
was a far greater inclination to tears, and
tears ~ O f joy, .than there was to any es
pecial Persotial jubilation. And,.as the
President of that convention most elo
quently said of a subject which- is made
ono of ridicule and acorn by unthinking
people on the other side.—the President
said 'if the people of the United-States
Could have all looked on 'that boy on
, the first day, • hen South Carolina and
Massachusetts . came in linked arm-in-arm
in that convention, (applause.) why, said
he, I 4o not think that there is a, human
being but that-would have been willing
to have laid down his differences, to have
brought all the causes of his animosity
and laid them upon the altar of a common
country.' A thousand strong men wept
on that occasion as children weep ; silent,.
hardly a word said, but the tAought was
there, that great and glorious thought,
after so tong a separatbin, aft,- r such
scenes of blood, atter m teting ;in the
fierce conflict of battle, we were again
brothem (applause) all brought into a
common sympathy wi;ll' the Union.—
(Great applause.) It wee not a thing for
scorn, but it was a thing of which our
common humanity had aright to be proud
—it was God-like It was in the spirit of
our religion, we had forgiven one another.
That convention put. forth a platform Is
it objectionable? Has it been assailed?
Does it contain a single principle that it
not found and 'embodied not only ,in the
few of this country but in the law Of than
country from whence we derive our laws,
and is imbedded in the hearts 'of the
American people , (Tremendeus ap

of the Union-under the policy of President
Johnson's Administration—rho sustain the

Speeches by Hiester Clymer, Pres
ident Johnson and Others.
A Glorious Prospect for au te trytailmitur
- Success. v .
The Observer was not: relatiken in its
opinion expressed last Week, that it the
weather was favorable, we should have one
of the largest asserablapit:ever convened
in Erie, on Ittoiaday. It tias not merely
one of the greataat--it was the greatest.
We had wh.114 - ree thought immense crowds
here during the, memorable campaign of
1864, ivizotla party conventions, but they
are net compared to that of Mon
day. The whole surrounding country_
,seemed to have turned out essurne—men,
women and children;—not Erie county
'alone.•but, from points fifty - to a hundred
milers distant. They came in on foot and
horseback ; by rail and every conceivable
'mode of conveyance. Young men and
old men ; the enthusiastic youth, and the
veterans of Jackson's time, with their
wives and daughters and lisps ones,
poured into the city by, thousands, from
every direction and by every avenue. It
was an occasion long to be remembered,
and - has done more to rekindle the vigcr
of our friends, and discourage our ene
mies than any event of tha kind within
our recollection.
The morning , opened cloudy, and gave
indications of a had day, but else patriotic
masses were too strong in their determin
ation to be present, to be deterred by the
ominous state of the Weather. It was plain
frost the start that the • meeting was cer
tain to. be a success. The people corn
' menoed coming in at atry early hour,
And by noon there was a upon. the
streets that would have put Broadway to
the blush. 'Previous to the hour for the
commencement of the meeting many of
our staunch friends took occasion to call
at the Observer office to renew their sub-
Scriptiona, and for a time our establish
ment resembled a prosperous bank in its
financial operations. At various points in
the city flags were, displayed, though we
regret to say, that our city Democrats did
not evince the zeal and courage in this
respect that they should. Some of our
country friends expressed' considerable
disappointment on this subject, and, we
are bound in truth to admit, not without
cause. The general expectationthat there
would be a vast meeting bad encouraged
hosts of speculators to - visit the city, and
at'nearly every corner could helmet' some
specimens of this dais, actively engaged
in trying to "make the dimes." Two_ or
three loud voiced individuals did a pros
perous bushiesq in selling Clymer portraits
and badges.
Mr. Clymer reached the city on Satur
day evening, by special train from New
Castle. He was greatly fatigued. by his
past active labors, end having expressed a
desire to secure some quiet, was taken-to
the residence of Wm. A. Gebraith, Esq.,
whose Guest he remained while in the
city. Oh Sabbath he attended the Epis
copal church, of which denomination be
is a', member. - On Monday Morning be
was ;escorted to the balcony of Brown's
Hotel, where be reviewed the procession,
and Was vociferously cheered by those in
the line. In the evening be gave a public
reception in the parlors of thilotel, and
was waited upon by a large number •of
persons. _ His graceful mianers'and unas
suming address charmed all met him
Among the most enthusiastic of his Yid'
10i8 was Senator Lowry, who' greeted him
with a cordiality that "fully corresponded
with his oft expressed adritiration of the
man. Mr. Lowry bais always -been a very
warm eulogist of Mr. Clymer'stharecter.
They have served i together in the Senate
'many year's, and notwithstanding their
extreme political 'differences, their per
sonal relations have never been anything
bet kindly. The Senator's usual mode of
speaking of' Mr. Clymer is in this strain :
"He is a noble fellow personally, an hole
eat man, the ablest Democrat in Pennsyl
but his ixoitica-are horrible." Dar
ing the evening some of the leading Re
publicans of the city were introduced by
Mr. Lowry, and were highly delighted
.with their reception. About ten o'clock
Mr. Clymer retired to procure.some rest,
and in the morning he left upon the early
train for Warren. He made hosts of warm
personal friends while hero, and-Gen rely
upon always receiving a het*Welceme
upon any future visit. :"••
At 'it o'clock, on Monday, the. proces
sion was formed upon Buffalo street, un
der the direction of Col. Grant as Mar
shal, and Captain Hutchinson and Dr.
Thayer as Assistants. This feature of the
day exceeded by far our exPeetations,and
was creditable, , undeethe circumstances,
to the highest degree. B t little peeper
atlork had' been made for it, and yet in
length and appearance it was equal if not
superior -to the great McClellan rrocesaion
of 1864.' It stretched up State street as
far as the eye could reach, and could not
have been under a mile and a-half or
two miles in extent. There were not
many emblems, as the time was too brief
to prepare them, but the few that were to
be seen were expressive and creditahle.
Many of the conveyances were handsome
ly trimmed with evergreen, and the num
ber of flags would have supplied the Army
of the Potomac. The Republicans had evi
dently not anticipated this feature of the
day, and several of them expressed their
surpris.t to tis at its eucdess. We should
take pleasure in giving a full report of its
leading features,but our time was so much
occupied with other duties that we found
it make the-necessary notes.
Three bands were in the line—Hehl's,
the College, and Gulliford's, of Girard.
After marching through the principal
streets, the procession halted at - the East
Park, and the participants adjourned to
Soon after one o'clock the meeting was
organised. An immense crowd of people
were in attendance. Tito stand used for
the officers c and speakers is one that has
been built by both parties in common, to
remain until after election. Some dissp•
pointy:lent was ; felt because no more
speakers from abroad were present, but
we are assured that the absence of those
expected was unavoidable. Mr. Carrigan,
who had been 'promised, to us, got as far
as ,Tohnstown,when he was called back by
illness in his family. The other gentlemen
who were desired to have been present,
we presume have good reasons for their
absence. The number of people was large
enough to have. supplied half-a-dozen
Manta with attendants, and as two thirds
of them were unable to bear Mr. Clymer,
they employed themselves in wandering
about the citywhich prevented the
meeting froin inalsng as imposing an ap•
pesrance as it would otherwise have done.

Mr. Clymer waseived wit h a heirty
round of applause. His speech, laying ill
political prejudice side. must be admit
one of the finest ever delivered in
Erie. It was clear,argumentative and Out-
Spoken, entirely free from,-objectionable
personalities. and was listened to with an
interest teldom witnessed. As a.speaker
Mr. Clymer has fewsuper4ors.. He has a
genial presence, and possesses a firm. ring
log voice, which is peculiarly pleasing in
its effect. Below we give an abstract of
1 his remarks, which by ne means does bim
justice. He spoke about two hours, and
kept the attention of all Within hearing

happiness for me to be with you to-day. It
has long been my desire to meet the conserve-
Hie citizens of this portion of- the State -in
council assembled; and here, in this lovely
city which site upon the shore -of an inland
sea, like a jewelled, queen, to arrive with them
at some conclusions which will be to the bene
fit of sus and our-common country. I had
hiped that it would-be my privilege to speak
to a fesitundredo, but when I see around-me
thousands in a district where the Democrats
have no power, and where it is esolusion
from office, almost 'from society, to be a
Democrat, I Am
, truly surprised and g ate
In the county where I come from, Berke, it
is almost impossible not folio a Democrat. A
man there is born a Democrat, lives a Demo
crat and dies a Democrat. It is his interest
to be a Demoora*.- But here. whore it is ex
clusion to be a Democrat, it is far nobler to be
a Democrat. And as here. ms fellow-citirens,
so everywhere through thia ;broad Common•

shot was fired which caused-the blood which
'flowed in the national heart tfiltlow fester
than it ever Bowed before, becattee It was the
shot which announced that We nation was
about to be destroyed.' Now It is because the
people are gathered to oppcfse the - lame
principles which threatened the destruction
of the Union when tbi: first `rebel shot was
fired in Charleston Harbor. It i t mot neon
sary for me to refer to the many questions
agitating the popular mind prior to 1861
There were, prior to that theories not
vital to the existence of the government—a
difference of policies merely. Thome were
wide differences of opinion between the great
minds of the country, North and Elontli,:in re
gard to the ••peculiar institution" which
produced the conflict • which deluged
the land in blood. It produced a. war of
opinion—l bad almost said a war of races.—
The North ,went into the war to - do -three
things': -
let. To restore & broken Union.
2d. To vindicate the Constitution.
3rd. To resto-o the laws over all the
The war ceased. Lee surrendered to Grant.,
and Johotion to Sherman. The armies of the
rebellion melted away like frosts before the
summer sun. Not a rebel remained in arms.
No jarring of the implements of war was
heard from the Penobscot to the Gulf. Re
bel,ion played fora high slake and lost all,
while its supporters slunk into the obscurity
they d d. Would you not have sup
posed, that when armed rebellion ceased.
Peace, blessed Peace, would have come? Had
yen not been promised that. Why has it not
been performed?
With the surrender of Lee and Johnson,
the objects of the war were accomplished.
Bat just at the' close of the contest, one cf
those rare and horrid °flutes occurred, around
which gather in history the circling events of
centuries. By the assassination of Abraham
Lincoln, Andrew Johnson became President
of the United States. lf, under his adminis
tration, bermonyahould again come to the
land, who will not see in the auspicious event
the spirit of God moving over the troubled
waters. Educated in the faith of Jefferson,
and brought up at the feet of Jackson, An.'
drew Johnson when he toos an oath to sup.
port the Constitution, and enforce the laws,
meant to keep that oath, and most nobly has
he doneso.
Dating all the long weary yiers of ' blood
shed thrciugh which we have passed, the Dem
ocratic Tarty has known only its ancient
creed. In the distant past, throughout the
war and to this day, its doctrine ever has
been end still is, that every man everywhere
must submit•to the requirements of the Con
stitution and render implicit obedience to the
laws. Believing this, the Democratic party
of the North sustained the tear for the Union
both by men and means. only claiming the"
right of demanding that 1t should not be per
verted from thatavowed and most holy pur
pose. The man who says that the Democracy
of Pennsylvania did not honestly and heartily
sustain the War for the Union. slanders
thousands of brave men now deed, and the
entire mess of that great party now living, of
which - we, whotare hero to-day, are a coin
ponent part. No one has been more misrep
resented in this respect than I have. Yet
;early in the struggle I laid dose my platform
lin Vein terms and on that I have always
Irmly stood.. In almost tie very first speech
f ever made in la deliberative body,in the Sen
ate of Pennsylvania, speaking for my consti
tuency Ind to some extent for the Democracy
of Pennsylvania; I made nee of the following
language, which may be found ,on page 73 of
the Legislative Record of 1861: •
"lam hcri to-day -to deny for myself, and I
believe for the great body of the Democratic party
of this State, that they recognise anything lib the
right of. secusion of any Slate. I deny, I say,
the right of any State to secede, and /go further,
I tell you that the Democracy of this State, with
0011 : hort and ferling, applaud the gallant
,dirson for hie *fence of the property of the lot
ted Sysila.. If he should go farther still and al
to tray but the Blois- and Strips to float
within the range of his guns. I for one would say
amen to his deeds. There./ stand. I say that
South Caroline hoe no cause for seassion or re
bellion, and that it should he put down by the
strong arm of the government."
Koch was the platform which I laid down
for myself as early as the eleventh day of
January, in the year 1861, and before Go&
as I know my own heart, I have never swerved
from it to the distance of one hair. breadth.
It was my position during the war, and, to so
now. He who asserts otherwise is either-
Ignorant or a wilful falsifier. -
And now let assist whet was the object of
the war? For what purpose was it prose
cuted? Did not every Republican orator and
newspaper declare it was a war for the Unica
—purely and ;simply snob f Were not we,
who were ridiculed as ' , Union savers" in the
campaign which resulted in the election of
Mr. Lincoln, denounced as enemies of the
Union whenever we dared to call Into question
any single act of his administration? The
soldiers, the many thousand, of Democratic
soldiers; who went from Pennsylvania. all be
lieved the war to be a war for the„thtion. - I
ask you if this was not the great obj Act
of the war. Is there any man who dare dept'
it ? ' Will any man, be ho radical or not, dare
to deny it? Would any man iilB6l have
dared to have said it was to enfranchise the
Depots of 'the South; would be have -dared
to say it was to preserve radicalism? Carr.
:allay not. He would have been -justly de
nounoed. and any party which advanced
nob" an ides consigned to eternal infamy.—
The war was waged to maintain the law and
perpetuate, not destroy the Union. I ask
whether you have not gathered.- to represetdp
the trails of the victory I ask every man in
the sound of my voice, no clatter of what
political shade of belief, why are we not in
unity to-day? Wby is it that Then you go
to the national Capital you find ten States un
represented in the councils of the nation. I
will ask who are the Uolori men to day ? Is
it thet men who .deny these Stales representa
tion or those who' declare them entitled to at?
I will ask who have Changed places with
Jefferson Davis sad Ms colleagues in this war
on the government?
- Andrew Johnson, when he became Prost•
dent; found eleven Stales without laws, with
out Governors,' without Legislatures. He wail
not - the -President of- the fikirth; bat et the
' •
whole Union., lie iris the Executive Oleo of
the. eleven disorganised Commonwealths as
well as of the tiorthArn Slates, was the
head of the government.' What was he to do?
Should he permit riot and confusion to reign
in those States, or dispense law and Order.—
Who else was there to do it ? Who else. In.
deed, if the bead of the government had not
the power to do it? Did he proceed to treat
them as conquered provinces? Did he pro
ceed to treat them is States that had lost
their rights and were dependencies? Or did
ho treat them according to that law which
lies at the foundatiOn of the government—
that the people should govern themselves?
That they are governed best who are govern
ed least?
wit was necessary that, trete should be some
means of - communicsnou between these States
in,i the Feiniirel government. How would
any man -have _proceeded? He appointed
Provision4l Governors-for those States. They
were only provisional, and in hie iustruistions
to them be laid down clearly the line of duty.
They were instructed to encourage the telling
of conventions by the people, the source of ell
power, in order that by them the defects in
existing institutions might be retuedie&Shia
was done, sad speedily all began to assume
the appearance of good order. The Secretary
of the Treasury sprint/led his officials to take
charge of the reset nes, the Postmaster Gen
eral re-established mail routes, the Attorney
General put the Courts of the United States in
operation, and again the life bleat of good
government began to course' freely through
the parented members of the wounded politi
,The speaker then:traced the,reconstniatien
policy of PrissidentJohnson, and showed its
identity, in the forniation of provisional gov
ernments for the late rebellious Statel, with
the polio, inaugurated by President Lincoln
in the cases of Louisiana and Tennessee. Was
not that hie duty ? What else could -be do?
Wan he not bound, ias the Executive of the
nation, to reconstruct the State governments
:AU establish kw and order among the peo
ple? But he even. Vent beyond this : he re
quired of the reconitracted States thatAhey
should ratify the Constitutional amendment
abolishing slavery, and repudiate the rebel
debt. The States acceded to these conditionr:
and no one at the North gainsayed the sots of
the President at this time last year, when his
policy had been fully developed. Every one
—Democrat and Republican united , in /ray
ing that he had dope his-duty, and done it
patriotically ancljndiaiently.. The Democrats
not only earnestly endorsed him, but.went
farther and proclaimed from every stump in
the State !bat the Republican endorsement of
the Fresident .was, a sham= and a fraud.—
We were deiounced by the opposition
for pointing out their deceit; -and that
party went into power a year ago upon their
endorsement of the President's tolioy.—.They
von the October elections in this /State by a
clear case of false pretences. It was not the
first lima they had carried elections that way,
but be trusted in Ood it would be the last.—
They were no sooner seated in power, than
the Radical leaderisfaleified their pledges,and
declared that the President's reconstruction
plan would not suit. them. The only reason in
tits world for this _change of their view was
this a If the Southern Stales were admitted to
theirjust and constitutional share in the gov
ernment, the Republican party would be
driven from power.' The Radical leaders see
ing this, determined that the States_ should
not be admitted until they effected a perpetual
insurance on their own retention of power and
;at renege.
Ia what does Mr. Johnson's policy differ
to-day from that of a year ago? Upon what
line of his policy can you lay,your finger to
day, differing from; that of to-day ? I want
any honest men toianswer me. Where is,,ii?
My fellow-eitizeni, the great conservative
party of the North said one year ago„fand
subsequent events nave proved it to be tine,
that the Radicals were not tens in their en
dorsement of the ;President's policy. It is
unnecessary to prove the.oharge now, for they
stand convicted. We said then that they only.
intended to deceive the p S ople, and when the
people had given ; them I power they would
use it ; against thePrisident. How were these
predictions fulfilled-? I refer yen to the party
records for their; truth. Immediately after,
the October elections, when the people had
trusted to their :protestations, arid again
trusted them with power, they commenced
planning their wet upon the Executive. In
the latter past of November the Inman , vas
startled by a speech from Sahuyier Colfax,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
from the steps of his house in Washington. in
which he gave the plan which the Radicals
have since carried out to the letter. In De
cember Congress assembled. Thiy were in
Inch baste to start on their plan of disruption
and dietician that they had hot the courtesy,
to wait for the before they elected,
their officers. They had net the common 'de-,
(tens, to hear his explinition of his policy.-4
Oa that Mender: morning, before the sun'
went down, a resolution was adopted which'
sent this whole Subject to a committee of fif
teen, composed of members of both Houses,
to which all questions were to be referred
without debate,—a course which has never
found its parallel except in the Central Direct=
tory of the French Revolution.
Thu e, my fellow citizens, did Congress shot
out from the ring of debate the greatest
questit as which it has ever bad to, deal with
since its foundation of the Republic. The
Radicals began to, show their true colors.—
They showed their position towards the Pre
sident's policy. • They knew that the Prat:
dent's policy was the death blow to Radical
ism ; tbey knew that if the whole people were
represented in Contrails the radical element
would no-longer rule; and they knew thit
there were millions of majcrity against thiem.
So they tried to devise setae plan by which
they might continue to- govern. And they
proceeded, day after day, during many
months, to develops their plans. They pro
ceeded to legislate for one color and against
another. Tiler passed that bill which de
serves the execration of every white man-•
the Freedriten's ' Bureau bill. The President
vetoed it. They ; passed it over his veto.-6
They passed the Civil • Right'e bill. The
President vetoed it and they passed it over
his veto.
Every week the country was startled to bear
of some proposed; amendment to the Constitu.
lion of Washington,
_the instrument,- which
was considered as nealy perfect as could be
obtained by human judgment. Such an in
atm-merit as thisi these gentlemen were un
willing to live under. any- longer. because it
was not intended fora party bat for a whets
country. That tau its "Radical” defect, in
the opinion of these "tinkers." Long months
passed away, the summer was nearly over.
the dog day's came and it was es hot that
these gentlemen could stand it no longer.—
The heats of suremer had come upon them
and they knew i that they might not much
longer delay. They knew they - must soon
meet their constituents and show why it was
that" they had turned &unionists. , They
Must answer their constituents how it was
they were doing` today by exo!usion, whit'
the rebellion had not done by force. Their con
science told them that they must give some
excuse. . They made a plan in opposition to
the Constitutional plan of the PresMent to go
4 ,4,4 a.
before the masses of the nation. I will at
tempt to disuse' that plan ; sho
yon its
gual.tier; show you that it is no plan ut •
trick and intended to deceive the people; that
it is • plan to, cover universil confiscation
and negro suffrage.. - 1,..
The first is an attempt to make .constitu
(local their infamous Civil Rights Bill, which
had been property vetoed by the President,
because of its glaring violations of the funda
mental law of the land. Their attempt thus
to re-enact it in'the shape of • constitutional
amendment. obesre that they kogw that -the
very law which; they passed over . President
Johnson's Veto by a two-thirds vote was un
constitutional. !I assert fearlessly that by
'that set they were guilty of that, to nee •
moderate term, I will call political _perjury ;
for. having taken an oath to support the Con
stitution of the United Sisk% they °eat , ' not
without perjury,pass a 111 W contravening it.
That they know the Civil Right's Dill was un
constitutional. it proven by their attempt to
remedy the defects of the sot by re-enacting
it In the shape of the first clause of the pro
posed series of amendments. The secant'
clime Is meant: to force negro suffrage upon
all the States by mean* of intimidation and
bribery. The Southern States are to be kept
out until it is adopted, and by it Pennsylva
nia Is to be dePr i lved ors member of Congress
unless she confers the right of suffrage upon
the migrate within her borders. It wee de
signed to especlidly benefit the Sew England
States, In whiehithere is no negro popubitiou,
by cutting down the representation of States
like Pennsylvania, Maryland, Kentucky
New Jersey. with a large negro populatio .
In regard to the third proposition, forbiddi
those who had taken the.eath as members f
Congress, Judges, &c., from again holding
1111011 offices, he said that a more damning
proposition was never made to a generous na
tion. It is a blow aimed al the brain, the
heart, the life of the whole Southern land. It
is an, ungenerous sot. I know that none of
you who met ?them in the carnage of death
but made digit your friend and brother. Wet
know that these men who engaged irt the re
bottles ltitiglit and voted against it to the
last. Whin ads/Ulla want oat what *eke
they to do? lied the Federal Government
power to protect them? Is it generous or right
to treat theta so ?' Why,: they would be in the
position of the Iran who was damned if .he
did, and damned if he' didn't. •They would
have been hanged by the Confederate Gitv
ernment ii.they didn't, and now they were,to
be ; more than hung by the Fedetal Govern
ment because they did. : The fourth proposi
tion of Congress, compellieg the States lately
in rebellion to repudiate the rebel debt and
acknowledge the National debt as a sainted ob
ligation, be denounced .as absurd. Who,.he
asked, questioned the validity of the National
debt? Every mas.almost in the United States
was interested la it. Scarcely a man is so
'pour that he does not own one or more of the
Government bonds, and the party that would
pfoposp such thing as repudiation would be
swept into obscurity. He would not insult
thb intelligence of the audience by discueeing
it.l, The rebel debt was promised to be raid
six months after the ratifteatiooof a treaty of
peace with the trotted States. Na suoh treaty
ever has been made ea by their own ft ce are
they shown to be dead. The States by adopt
ing new Coostiintions repudiated the whole
Of the rebel.debt. Tbt4 killed it "deader.",
what need then for that ? - •
Mr. Clymer then quoted, at length from
Wendell Phillips' speech at Framingtoo, Mas
sachusetts, In Jtily last, to shove that after all
the amendments were nothing but a cheat and
she, to "bridge over" the October elections.
When the people had been again humbugged
the real purpose of the Radicals 'will be ex
prised. Their plan hi, if possible, a larger
majority than they now have in Congress,
when a constitutional amendment. granting
universal euffrage to the negro!' and dietrib
'citing the lands of, the South among them,
would be adopted. Mr. Clymer ah , what
would be the consequences of suchA move,
and painted in glowing, colors the despicable
condition of the Middle States, when they
Ith-luld be thus giound between the upper
millstone of 'flukes fanaticism and selfish
cupidity, and the nether one of whole States
controlled by negro votes.
Mr. Clymer referred to his, opponent -Gen.
Geary, prefacing his remarks by deolaring
that he would not disgrace himself nor, dis
credit the party which . nominated him by say
ing one harsh word againet his private char
acter. Hie public and political sets were
-public property. With them alone be should
deal. He was running as a soldier. Of him
in that capacity be, allowed these who had
served with him to judge if he had won
laurels not one, Vpat would he pluck from his
brow. Of his political career Mr. 'Clymer
said there reutilized little record. Mr. Clymer
proceeded to read his letter' to Samuel Mc-
Guire; in which Gan Cleary announced
self a 'life-long Democrat in the broadest
sense of the term, without affix or prefix "
This produced roars of laughter. M r. Cly late
then read nearly the whole of Gen. Geary's
speech, recently made et York. com
ments on the General's allusion to Bank's
report on the neutrality' lairs led natural) to
a review of the coarse of the party which was
once the Know-Nothing organization. In
fittirg terms be -exposed their 'former infamy
nod their present shame and arrogant pre
sumption. The unmanly-attack of Gen. Geary
upon the men who composed the &idler'
Convention which assembled at 'Harrisburg,
which he denounced them •As.- - Jlenesits,
ektdkere, cowards , and hospital &tamers,"
:gave Mr. Clyriter • chance toleal 'with him
'in that' keen invective of which he is so corn
plate a toaster. He `Said he supposed soldiers
would Tote against as welt as for him, but he
hoped to God his - tongue would be palsied
wheneverhe stigmatized the armless and-leg
less veterans of the war, or any one who ever
wore toe blue, by such false. and calumnious
epithets. Mr.: Clymer then clearly and elo
,quently referred to the charges of the Repub
licans that he has been hostile to the soldiers
and the Union. ,fle showed by 'conclusive
proof that he had always been a sincere friend
of the soldier; both in private, end public lite,
and that the professed extracts from his record
in therSenattrwere gathled and intended to
give a false IrOprecrion. As to hie love for
the Union,.he : thought no man who knew him,
and was present, would question-it.
Mr. Clymer said by the will of the Demo
eratiostarty of Pennsylvania he had been
put fcrward ae the exponent of their prin
ciples. II • had nothing to conceal, but would
frankly state, his priaciples. Ha had • been
nominated became° he was supposed to have
illinstrated by his life his devotion to the
principles of the Democratic party. • He did
not ask the support of any man on personal
grounds, btit ,'aimed only the votes of tho-e
who tweed with him in principle. Men die,
but nrieciplest are eternal. He then exam
ined the platform of- the Republican .State
Convention, end showed that it contained the'
doctrine of negro stiftrage, sugar-ended, en
that Inelpient.Redicals could swallow it. He
also referred to the statement made by Mr. T.
M. Marshall, of Pittsburgh. that Gen. Geary
had expressed to him his hearty concurrence
in the policy and principles of Thaddeus
Stevens, the disunionist. Bet decidedly the
richest part of Mi.-Clymer' speech was his
withering ridicule of the attempt,being made
by the old Know Nothing leaders to wheedle
and blarney the Irish into the support of the
Radical ticket, by a professed desire that the
neutrality lava should be repealed.- Th.
cheering at the speaker's hits was tremendous
and one had no ditßoulty in , recognizing the
"rich Irish brogue" in the shouts that went
up from the meeting.
At the close of Mr. Clymer's remarks,
Col. Dm. Rice, who was upon i the stand,.
was lonaly called for. AlvirayS willing to
oblige the people, be stepped forward and
delivered ina extemporaneous speech,
which was so good that we kave to doubt
many in the audience felt as we - did,
that -a first class statesmen was spoiled
when the Colonel went into the show bus
iness. fie said he was. knoWn to be a
warm friend of the 'soldiers, and at first
'the cry against Idt. l Clymer bad excited
some prejddice against that gentleman.
11 He had fully investigated the matter, and
ievras siitiefied lbei soldier had' no better
friend in Pennsylvania than
,Hiester %Y

the ..Republican press; pretending to be
extracts from the Democratic candidate's .
record,' were perversions in most cases,
and falsehoods in other?. He had consul
ted with his personal friend, Guy. Curtin.-
about Clymer, and believed, .from what
-Curtin told him, that he (Curtin) would
iota for Clymer if be could do it on the
sly. He bid reluctantly consented now
and then to speak of politics; but politi

the Radical party, were

man, and . he_ disliked to kite - Maw with
them. Some of his friends,ln . the kind.

parties lon the ground that he 'amid not'

how to manage jackasses. He, threw sem-
mersaults to amuse the , people—a legiti
mite pursuit ; and ati . hanorable one; but
if any one could be found who could
throw sommersaults like the' Radical par
ty, then he was sick.; The Colonel spoke
at some , length, alternately Causing his
audience to roar with laughter, and stir
ring them "to a print of uncontrollable en

the people to visit the depot, and see the-
Presidential party. Directly after, thevol;

to'the same point, and they were soon
followed by thousands of citizens'.
The Commitibe of Arrangements and
the people In the vicinity of the depot are
entitled to much credit, for their proper'.

what few will dare to deny, that more

The buildings in the vicinity displayed
numerous flags, and the whole ii.pect of
that portion of the city was decidedly
cirditsble. Under Mayor 'Scott's super.
vision, the arrangercients for the reception
of the party were complete in all parties•
lars. The east room of the depot had
been set apart for the committee, into
which none were admitted except those
who had tickets. A goard was placed at
each door, by means of which the visitors
were afforded a free exit froth the cars to
the stage; and an uudisturbed return. At
the expected time the train arrived, and

-When the applause which greeted theni
had subsided, Mayor Scott stepped for
