A. K. RHEEM, Chairman.
hort all those of our readers who are
within reach, to come on Saturday night
todilieel'a Hall, and hear
, Hon. FRANK
JORDAN. He is rather severe .on the
_Copperheads, but.his speech will gladden
the heart of every truo.Uhion man.
THE following is extrifeted from a pri
vate letter from a New Yorker, now for
some; two or three years a resident at the
South ; "There is no chance of a North
ern man making a living in Virginia.
The feeling is ten times worse than it
ever was before. You know, I havO al
ways ,been a Democrat, but if the Sey
mour ticket is elected no Northern man
can live in the South, and I am going to
et-out -ofit - as - econ-as - I can et m
iley. I would - not stop a day if I had
my money."
TALLANDIGHAAI, to whom Seymour is
largely indebted for his nomination, ut
tered the following sentiment On tho•6th
ofjaly, 1861, just belbre the battle of
Bulb Run : ." In this unholy and uncon
stitutional &ruse& against the South, in
the midst of the insurrection and-murder
to which oho has been subject, and with
which she is still threatened, with the
toroh of the incendiary and the dagger
of the assassin suspended over her, my
most cordial sympathies are whogy with
Ma. SEI , I%I9UR, during the agitation
of the slavery question, (recommended
throwing open the national territories to
slavery. He was in fav,or of il&Critten
den Compromise. At the beginning of
the war he said,he had no faith that the
Union could be maintained by force: He
denied the constitutionality of the draft
!alio. In 1864 he denounced, the war
as a failure, and in 1868 is_the-nominee7
of rebels for'theoffice of President._
THE Democrats allege that, the Presi
dential campaign is being hotly Contested

afraid to have the condition of the na—
tional finances made known. It is a

without .detection. But how about the.
condition of the finances seven years ago,
-when"fhe Democrats went out of office?
What about an -empty Treasury and - an.
impaired credit 7 Have these virtuous
critics any recolledtiMa . of a twelve per
cent. loan Made in an emergency 'they
`had Ireate&? , - . Do-thor-think it•will ,be.
deemedwise to put such financial hon
esty and ability to the test again ? The
people do not.' • ,
AN exchange says that Milligan*, the
notorious Indiana Democrat, in a recent•
spe'ech delivered near Logansport, after
;arguing the entire equality of confederate
soldiers with the boy's in blue, proceeded
to justify the repudiation of our own war
debt, under the same constitutional pro
visions-which forbid \ the*.reeognition of
the rebel obligations. That is abont what
!the arguments of the Pennsylvania
mocraoy will Sift down to. . •

The following article from the columns
of -a neutral Pictorial Paper, is so _good
and so holiest astatement of aportiOnof
the "Draft-riot candidate's" war more,
that we give it place in preference to an
editorikl_ormir own,. which bight be-re
garded as partisan in'its.allegations
We liave received ,the following note
from Dayton; Ohio.;._ , .
"The CinCinnati Commercial bee a report
of the speech of tho Den. D. W. Voorhees,
at Terre Haute, Indiana, in which be says
of Mr. SoymOur : Ho saved the aro:11y of the
Union at Gettysbuirgoind for it received the,
personal thanks of braham Lincoln and
Edwin M. Stanton. This recorded fact is'
the solemb key to his whole conduct - during
the war.' How true the above'is will you
please. inform /...RBruntacittr."
Mr. Seymour was exactly as loyal and
faithful a Union man as Mr. Voorhees.
They Were ,both what was significantly
called Copperheads; and nothing is more
amusing than the attempt of those who
denounced the war-as.fratricidal and in
famous, to prove that theil. candidate,
Mr. Seymour, supported it. The facts
are becoming very familiar, but it, is use
ful to consider them. .
Mr.,Seymbur was alwaYs an apologist
for slavery and a defender of the policy
of the slaveholders. 7hen they seceded
because of the result of the election of
1860, in which they took part, Mr. Sey
mour assailed'the party which had elect
ed Mr. Lincoln as responsible, because it
had not yielded to the threats of the
slaveholders and permitted their policy
to prevail. And he stated in the form
of a question that " successful coercion
by the North is no less revolutionary
than successful secession by - the Solitli:"'
This was,a repetition of lluchanan doc
trine, supplied by. Jeremiah 131ack that
the Government could not rightfully "co
erce" a State. Mr. SeymoUr's whole in
fluence was directed to Secure a - com
4)romise_with-zebels ; _but the loyal people
insisted that the rebellion should be sup
pressed- at. every cost; and when . the
rebels began the war they did not shrink.
On the 28th of October, 1861, Mr.
Seymour made a speech which was.a vir
tual justification of the rebellion and
condemnation of the Government, and in
which he said that the Union should be
sacrificed_ rather than_sliv cry.— In _Sep
tember, 1862, President Lincoln issued
his preparatory proclamation of emanci
pation There were. signs of a reaction
of public sentiment against the war; and
recalling his words of the year before,
and the fact that, he had never spoken
one mord of encouragement to the -.sol
diers or of sympathy with the Govern
ment, the . Democratic party nominated
Mr:Seymour. for Governor; At lea . St
seventy-five thousand voters were absent
from the State in the field, of whom a
vast majority Were opposed to him. Bui r
notwithstanding_ this advan'nge, his party
Managers were afraid of trusting hiru
upon a platform of unconditional sub - -
mission to rebellion, and Judge Stryker
and others persuaded him to make a
-speech at Brooklyn, 'Which wifs the same
kind of war speech which Richard
Gorman made in the great-Union Square
-- meeting after the firing -- -tip - on - Skinte - r, ---
Mr Seymour was elected Governor by
-the vote of the city of New York, over
Gen. Wadsworth, who had a majority of
the votes in the rest of the State. It
was the hope and expectation of his party:
that he would embarrass thevnationaluu
thorities by his official action, and his
appointment of John A. Green, one of
tire most notorious Copperheads, to a
high position in the State,-great—
ly encouraged the peace faction. But
the wOrli that was logically un - d justly
expected -of Mr. Seymour was nothing
less than a counter-revolution. His mes
sage in Januitry; 1863, showed the willing
spirit, but the flesh was weak. Instead
of recalling, the NeW York regiments,
or taking some decisive step of open
hostility, Governor Seymour chose the
•safer path of destroying confidence iu the
Government, and thereby paralyzing.the
'national arm.
. .
The dark summer of 166 a found - Lee
marching into Pennsylvania. On. the
15th of Juno, Secretary Stanton asked
aid , of Gov. Seymour " to repeal this in
vasion" of the States of Pennsylvania
and Maryland. The Governor sent the
froc?ps: On the 27th of Juno, peoretary
Stanton thanked him for•hiti." energy,
nativity and patriotism,'--'- -and .President
Lincoln also thanked him. • The latter
further told 'him, through Mr. Tburlow,
Weed, that if ho would-use all his power
to crush the rebellion, a,„grateful people
would make him- President.- Mr. Weed,
in recording this fact, adds : "I gave
the Message of an enlightened and Fad
! otic President to a metaphysically-mud-__
dled Governor, 'whose'. Seconsion sand
Copperhead proclivities and associations
brought deserved reproach and destrue
tion'.upon hirnself and his party." The
simple trutb, that:then„thg, demand
Of the GoVornment•for • troops was made
upon him, GovernOi Seymour was sud
denly compelled either to begin the-coun
fer-rsiolution by refusing, or to send the
reg,ill2olltl3.' But, ',as the soldiers were.
not to ig invade the .South," but to do.
fiSfid:&dtate . from invasion, he found an,
excuse for avoiding a responsibility which
he did not dare to assume. That his no . -
Lien belied his' words, and disappointed
'the ardent men of his own party, is in. ,
'disputable; and.that the expression's of
the Seoretary of War revealed•the in ton
city of his anxiety lest - Goy. SeymOur,
should - net as ho had always spoken, is
no less.unquestionabk. Had tho loyalty
of 'ovary Governor been' what Mr. S'ey.

over, in shoiv . ing hie party friends that
they noi• !inspect ofAloyalty,
and 'in furnishing a 'bitter commentary
upon ~the "patriotism " that Beciretary,
Stanton mentioned. The Secretary's noti?
was_written on. the S2lth of June: - On
the 4th of July,_when-the event-of the
great battle, for which the New York
troops-had-been- summoned, was, yet un
known4,--when it was the instinct of evert
loyal and generous' heart to . Aber public•
confidence, and &mirage the Soldiers in
the fteld, - ttovernorSeyroour came-to the
city of Newitorkto make a speech. Not
only was the moment as critical asVany
during the war from the ruitual military
situation, but because the draft had-been
found indhipensable. This' was The men
suieof the Goveropent's which 'excited
the, most serious and threatening
ity that was manifested duiing the. war.
Should the draft. be forcibly resisted,
there seemed to be no escape from a
universal convulsion. ' '
The city of New York was full of the
bitter eUetbies of tho Government and
its measures. Most of the . organized
militia had been sent waylay the Gov
ernor upon the requisition of tli© national
„authorities. There were but a very few
United States troops at the posts near the
city. Now York was virtually without
a military force in any extremity; and
of this•faet,-lind Of-the feeling and char
acter'of: a vast pa'rt of the population,
Governor Seymour was especially aware.
Deep glooM among the loyal,, eager and
dispoSition of the public mind. This
was the time and this the place of the
Governor's speech. Imagine what a man
would have said to whom the cause and
country • wore dear. " hernember what
thoroughly loyal citizens every where in
the•oountry felt that day I Imagine what
,Governor Jelin A.. Andrew of Massachu
setts, would have said in such an hoar
and' under - such circumstances ! His
words haye lmen inspirations of.
hope, „and faith, and, lofty cheer. All
good men, whose hearts and prayers wore
with Grant and hiti men at Vicksburg,
with Meade nail his Men at Gettysburg,
would have felt, as they listened, that"
whatever the issue of the battle, .the
cause, while such leaders as'A•ndrew re
tnaincd; ivas unconquerable.
Gov. Seymour's speech was a taunt
and a sneer. As if to make abject re
pentance for sending the soldiers, be be
gan in a-strain Of-bitter derision.- We
were moniised victories (or to-day, said
he, and Mntead of them comes the Mid
night cry of help, from Pennsylvania.
He proceeded to paint the situation as
hopelessly as he could, and, alluding to
the drafcwarned the Government that
the bloody dectrine_pf public necessity
could be proclaimed by a mob as well as-,
by a Government. The mob-hoard - and
applauded. • It knew that the soldiers
were absent,, and that the police were
few, however brave. It was sure of the
secret sympathy of the Governor, and it
made ready.- Having sown the seedVD
the 4th of July, the Governor, on the
11th, went out of. the State into New
.Jerse'y, and on the 13th the mob * rose.
Oa the 14th the Governor returned and
addressed the rioters dripping with inno
cent blood, sa3ing to them, "Let me as
sure you that 1 am your friend ;" and
adding, that,
_" as a test of my friend__
'ship," he had sent toWashington " to
have this draft suspended and stopped."
On Thursday night the militia and Uni
ted States troops began to arrive, and the
riots were suppressed. On the 3d' of
: the Governols wrote to the Pre.
sident urging the suspension of the draft,
saying, threatingly, as if to suggest ano
ther mob, " the temper of the people to
day you can readily learn."
- Horatio Seymour outerly --- denounned- 1
. the war; palliated the rebellion; denied
the-right of the Government to " coerce
States ;" • discouraged enlistments; pro
nounced" for slavery rather than union
sneered at the "promised" victories;
instigated the riots; threateningly urged
the suspension of the draft; piesided over

war a failure, and demandedbmission

the other band, when Lee invaded Penn
sylvania in 1863, and the national au:

Rum and rebellion have plaid sad havoc
with the character and prospects of Mr.
QOl3/3. 1856,-when he delivered his
famous "Democratic"- speech in Carlisle,
he had the appearance and manners of a
gentleman; and his discourse was a truly
able. and. eloquent one. But 'now the
mighty is fallen. - Bad company and worse
rum have wrought his ruin. In all his
late harangues lie betrays unerrirg evi

indulges in the foulest billingsgate, and

system, and in order that .it.may. meet with
the approval of l our. citizens and bo con
tin led,
wo are exceedingly anxious tha
there bo no exercise of of authority, unless
in cases of actual violation of our Borough
ordinances. Wo hear on all aides earnest
complaints against the prnetico of arresting
quiet and orderly soldiers, who may chance
to walk our streets in the evening .;,r night.
No mutter what the Commanding Officer of
the Barracks may desire our police force to
do in this Matter, they have no more right,
to-arrest a-soldier-who is behaving himself
than they have to arrest an orderly citizen;
no more right to demand a soldier's pass
than a citizen's pocket=book. If either cit . -
izen or soldier misbehaves and violates an
ordinance, he should be arrested at nce:o.but,
it should not be forgotlen_that_each has pre
cisely the — same rights as the other. And
for the sake of the System, we sincerely hope
our Chief Burgess will have a stop put to
this action on the part of his Force)!
