Friends of the great cause oChuman liberty,
there is nothing to discourage or dishearten

their means, was virtually a defeat.

Election by a majority of 5000, and yet were
defhated in November?

Thus the Whip, after success had become
hopeless, not only polled votes enough to beat
the vote of the sham Democracy in October,
but actually reduced their majority.
While we do not give np the State to the en.
emy, ever. if she may possibly have gone a•
gainst us now, we believe that we can carry her
for Fremont in November by a moat triunt
pliant majority. We call upon those men in
our midst who have fur years refused to vote
under a "Slavery Constitution" as they called
it, to come up now and vote against being
made slaves themselves. No man but has
some influence ;no citizen but has a vote. If
our own freedom is worth preserving, if free
soil is worth holding to make into free States
for our own posterity, then every man should
rally against the hosts of darkness and sin
which are crawling out into the light to vote
down and to scoff at everything of religion, of
virtue, of truth end of right. We commend the
following from a member o! the good e 'Luse we
fight for, to the eonsiderat on of all uur readers :
"It seems to us impossible that the ensuintt
struggle should be fought under disadvantages
at all equal to those which have just been en•
countered. We had no organization to start
with, and tittle at any time ; and there is very
little at this time; and there is a very general
impression that the management of the canvass
on our side might have been improved. Our
losses are nearly all in the Counties most ac•
cessible to money and influence from Phil
adelphia ; our gains are almost exclusively in
the impregnable West and North. We entreat
the friends of Kansas to lose no hour in perfect
ing an organization that will insure universal
confidence, reach every school district and
bring out the last vote. Men of Pennsylvania I
the issue of Freedom or Slavery in Kansas rests
with you. There is no longer a hope of reset•
ing her by the action of Congress ; a President
pledged to her cause alone can save her. Let
no moment, no effort, be wasted, until a triumph
is secured to Erections and Humtmit y ."'
Are You Ready?

Are you prepared fully for the next trial?—
Have you got a good and perfect organization
in your district? Have you polled your bor.
oughs and townships and do you know your
own men ? Have you appointed sub-commit.
tees for each school•district to bring out your
vote? If not see to it at once I Go to work
and do up what has been neglected. Do not
wait for your neighbors ; what is everybody's
business is nobody's business: but take hold
at once as if it was your special duty. We
can add hundreds to our vote on the 4th of
November by simply bringing out those who
failed to vote on the 14th. Remember, that
three additional votes in each election district
would have saved us the State, and may do it
again. The fate of a nation may hang upon
this contest. Let nothing of the past be suf.
fered to dishearten or dispirit you. "The bat.
tle is lost I" said Napoleon to Desaix when he
came up to Marengo. 'There is time enough,'
I said Desaix, "to win another," and the battle
of Meraugo was won.

At least 6,000 votes have been lost to the
Buchananiers in Connecticut since April last.

this fact, and conclusively prove that at the

Never Despair !
Once More unto the Breach.
Dear Friends, Once More
The late disaster which befel our friends in
the political battle of the 14th instant ought to
nerve them to determined efforts to redeem the
State. The history of former contests in Penn
sylvania, in the years in which a President was
to be eleeted, is full of hope for us. The op
position to the shar.Demeercy, in Presiden
tial years, have generally been beaten at the
October Election, but when the majority at
the State Election was small, as in the case
this year, the November Election invariably
went against Locofocoism, and even when their
majority was large in October, and the contest
seemed hopeless on the part of the Opposition
yet November saw a larger vote polled by
them, and, a reduced majority for the Loco
focus. Let these results in former years teach
us our duty in 1866—Let as all work hard—
aye, harder I—from this until the night of the
4th of November. to bring about a like result
to those which have crowned the unflagging
nevt•:R DESPAIRING offers of the opponents of
Locofocoism in past contcsts.
The election was carried by fraud, and Phil

to defeat us. Bat the system of fraud put

Free and Slave
A question of fearful importance is to be
decided at the coming election. It is between
free labor and slave labor. Let Buchanan be
lelected and Kansas made Slave State, and the
great West, with her noble rivers, and fertile
valliee, and broad prairies, is doomed to this
curse forever. Shall this virgin soil be the
home of Freemen, the domain of the hardy free
laborer—or shall it be worked by the °battles
!of Southern nabobs,—msu who too. , upon labor
an disgru cful,—who call our mechanics hire.
Zings, and have no more respect fur them than
for slaves? WORKING MEN of every trade
and occupation, and party, men whose hands
are hard with toil but who know the dignity of
labor, and can look any man in the face and
say, "I am your equal." Consider, ponder over
this act. Depend upon it, it is no idle alarm.
If you slumber now, you may awake to Grid it
a dread reality.
The Last Appeal
For your altars and your fires,
God and your native land."
On all hands we are beset with the inquiry,
What are the prospects! It is the old inquiry

We bid our friends be of good cheer. There
is no cause for being disheartened. At best
the Buchaniers have achieved but half a view.
ry. We have about half the Congressmen and
both branches of the Legislature ; and they
have a paltry majority for their State ticket,
which they have obtained by fraud and pipe.
laying. Looking at it from the most favorable
standpoint for them, it is a drawn battle ; while
from our stand-point, the fruits of victory are
with us. Our majority on joint ballot in the
Legislature is worth far more to us than their
State officers can be to them ; and it gives us,
beside, a chance to investigate the frauds at
the late election, and unseat these officers, if
the frauds should be clearly proven.
It is a little remarkable that at the October
election in 1840 the Democratic majority on
the popular vote was 4,6s9—snore than it is
now—and that the Legislature was ours by a
close vote. The ensuing struggle in Novem
ber gave us the State, as will be the case now.
In many counties the vote on Tuesday last
was quite light. Dauphin, Beebe, Chester,
Northampton, Cumberland and most of the in
terior counties polled but a light aggregate
vote, and yet the Democratic vote was quite
full. This will not be the case next time.
The immen e imported vote, seat in upon us
in all the border counties, will be needed at
home on the 4th of November. We will not,
we think, have that to contend against.
In addition to this, thonsands of pro-slavery
Fillmore men throughout the State voted the
Loci:sloe° ticket throughout, and this vote will,
in all probability, be diverted to Fillmore. The
indications are all in our favor. In every elec•
Lion district our friends tell us we can do bet.

is the same. Friends, remember those pro. !

What we want, now, is organization and
work. We want the boroughs and townships
thoroughly polled, the cause of every friend of
freedom put down, and efforts made to bring
out every vote. It must be done. Its every
township there should be a matt named to eve•

Election Fraud.
Know then every man that the frauds in the
city of Philadelphia alone were deliberately
planned ; that the State was canvassed and the
tended number of votes computed ; that money
was sent into the principal cities of this State
to buy votes and to colonize to vote down our
own citizens. Aye, even after Ito vote was ac
tually polled, we had news at the returns front
Philadelphia that the Shninoerats bad carried
the city by 2140 votes. On Thursday, when the
vote began to look close in the State, the tnajor
ay began to grow. Wards were found in that
city where more 'votes had been cast for "de
mocracy" than were at first thought. On Thum
day morniag the l'ennsylvanian put the major
ity at 2900, On Thursday evening it began to
be rumored that it had gone up to three or four
thousand. The exigencies of the case deman
ded it, and in the sliding scale of the political
thermometer the . ount went up to the required
figure. Can any sane man believe that for
three whole days the vote iu the city of Phila.
del; hia was known to be within 000 ? That the
omniscient Forney, notwithstanding his former
meanderings in the Forrest, tilde% know within
two days after the election to within 500 votes
of how the vote stood in the compact city of
Philadelphia? The Kansas and California
game has come home to tie, and it is our own
fault if it is tried on again. Let fraudulent
voters beware. On the 4th of November the
same game will not win. We nak only for right
at the Itallot4.x. We ask not stow men vote,
but by what right.
If a majority of the legal votes of the State
are against us, we cheeeefully submit. A fair
trial at the ballot-box is all see ask, and that we
must have.

Let all the friends of Freedom, Free Speech
and Free Kansas—let all the opponents of For

Fremont men and Fillmore men should join
heart and hand in taking the State from the
friends of Slavery and Southern Dictation by
voting that ticket. Each can vote for his own
individual choice, and by combination on the
Union Ticket can secure for that choice the
full strength of his preference in the State.—
There can be no reasonable objection to this.
There is no compromise of principle required.
It is in accordance with the course pursued in
voting for the Union State and Connty tickets
and must strike every one as not only fair and
honorable, but the only course that will tuba

efforts of the hosts of Slavery. Again be up

The Mends of Freedom and Free Labor in
Pennsylvania are beaten, but not subdued.—
Those who hold that labor should be owned by
capital—ehould be subject to the will of a mas•
ter without -fee or reward, have triumphed at
the late election. Bat they have not yet sub•
deed the spirit of Independence, or conquered
the principles of Freedom. The people have
been led into a wrong path by a blind zeal for
party and principles that have a fair exterior,
but are within "full of deed men's bones" and
all manner of uncleanliness. They have been
deceived and led to vote against their holiest
convictions of right and duty, but this cannot
long endure, and the universal triumph of truth
and justice is sure. Let all who desire to see

We appeal to you, our fair and noble coun•

you not exert it in the cause of God and your

Plain Argument
Slavery extension is contrary to the Chris

or any movement contrary to his religion with•
out sinning. James Buchanan is pledged to
Slavery gxtension. Consequently, no Chris
tina can support James Buchanan.

doctrine you endorse, if you vote fur him.
Do you risk then with Webster—" Whether

who stands pledged to the Union and the Con

No man honestly desiring the defeat of James

With such a union we can beyond all doubt

Let the friends of Freedom in Huntingdon
County gird on their armor for the great con.

that day the fate of Kansas will be decided ;

If the territories are to be given up to the

And they who aid in giving that majority
