GEN. GEARY BEFORE THE PEOPLE.
The Pittsburg Chronicle, a Johnson pa
. per, savs a grand mass meeting assembled ;
iin Bucks county, on Wednesday, which
was addressed by Geo. Geary. That dis
tinguished gentleman made a speech that
was no less characterize ! by candor than
eloquence. He said that objections had
been made to him because he had once
been a Detii<eiat, He a liniited the tact,
but asserted that he bad been educated in
the true principles of democracy. In the
year 1844 he was selected by President
Polk to proceed to California on a mission
of importance. On his arrival at. the Pa
cific coast he was chosen chairman of the
Central Committee of the Democratic par
ty, and took an active part in the political
struggle incident to the creation of Ca'ifor-,
nia into a regular State. Ihe "fire-eaters''
of the South came there with the avowed
purpose of making California a slave State.
The people were so absorbed in mining op
erations that they did not teke sufficient
cognizance of the important issues presented,
and John W. Geary was left almost single
handed to counteract the schemes of the
pro-slaverv propagandists. He brought to
the struggle all his resources of ability, zea;
and indexible devotion to freedom, and in
the end the cause of human liberty and 1
republican institutions triumphed, and Cal
ifornia became a free State.
In 1850, be took charge of Kansas.
There the old battle was to fight over again.
The authf rlties at Washington intended to
make Kansas a slave State. Geary gives
the following brief and unvarnished story ot
the seductions that were offered to induce
him into a betrayal of his convictions. The
slavfe oligarchy, lie says, approached me in
this manner: "Ifyou make Kansas a slave.
State, YOU have just to name your price;
do this, and if you want gubernatorial or
ministerial honors or wealtn, you have only
to apply to Mr. Buchanan." "I asked th<"n
whether there was anything in my official
career upon which they had predicted the
success of their scheme or which justified
them in approaching me in such a manner.
I then told them to go back to those trom
whom they came, and tell them there was
not money enough in the Treasury of the
Uuited States, though it should be heaped
mountain high, to swerve me one hairs'
breadth from the path of duty.'
In the course of his address, the speaker
alluded to the rumor that he would haw
consented to have been the Democratic!
candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania.
Hi said when he returned from the field,
it was with no political aspiration of any
kind; vet he was called upon by leading
Democratic politicians and requested to
allow the u-e of his name in connection with
the Democratic nomination, but he had
invaiiablv given a co-d shoulder to all such
entreaties, and he expressed his opinion ot
Democratic teachings in terms more truth
fill than complimentary. He then with
the utmost emphasis declared, that he firm
ly adhered to the great truths set forth in
the platform of the Republican party of the
State, and he endorsed the p'atform pre
sented by his fellow soldiers on the fifth of
June, as also the amendment proposed by
Congress to the Constitution of the United
States. That is plain and unequivocal
He made a summary of the Congres
sional plan of reconstruction. The first
| reposition of that plan simply gave to
every man equal civil rights. It was fa!<e
that it implied negro suffrage. It gave the
right to sue and be sued, hold property,
etc. The whole question of negro suffrage
was referred by Congress to the different
States respectively; committed entirely to
the keeping of the States and each State
might, at its pleasure, disfranchise or refuse
to enfranchise its negroes. It was a ques
tion, too, that could not come up in Penn
sylvania for year--. The Constitution of
the State could not be altered more than
once in five years, and having two years
ago amended it so as to allow the soldiers
to vote, it was impossible for the people,
again to amend that instrument until three
years more had elapsed. The speaker
thought negro suffrage might be aver.-
55 a p
proper question to consider in 1870, but at
present it was a myth.
Gen. Geary proceeded to expose the
Democratic tactics. Whilst negro suffrage
was kept up as a blind to delude voters,
the opponents of Congress were really
striving to bring in a very large number of
States based on the negro count in the
South. Under the old order of things, the
number of representatives from the South
based upon the negro count was seventeen;
the blacks now being no longer slaves, the
number of representatives from the States
was increased by eleven, making the whole
number based upon the negro count alone,
about twenty-eight In the States of Geor
gia. Mississippi, Alabama, and South Car
olina, the proportion of whites to blacks
was about as one to two and a half. The
inequality of representation as between the
North and the South could thus be easily
seen. It the p opositions of Congress were!
overthrown, the South would be admitted
to representation upon an unjust basis.
Congress proposed to let thorn come in on'
equal terms, and held the doors wide open,

for them, laying down only one condition,
namely, that the votes of all men, white
andTlack, should be counted alike — that
one ic/iite vote in the JTorth should not he i
made of less iceight than one white vote
in the South.
The General made some eloquent allu
sions to the Mexican war, and paid a grand
tribute to the gallant men who fought
for the tlag during the rebellion. His
speech was received with tremendous en
thusiasm, and will gain him many votes.
H.s election, by a handsome majority may
be considered as a certainty.

August 14, lbtJS. )
Peace is onto me! I hev spent many
happy period? in the course uv a eventful
life, but I never knowd what perfeck satis
facitow wuz till now. The first week I wuz
married to my Looizer Jane it wuz hevenly.
for independent uv the other blisses inci
dent to the married state I bleeved that
she wuz the undivided possessor of a farm,
or rather her father wuz, which on the old
man's decease would be hern, and the pros
peck of a life-time with a amiable, well
built womar, with a farm big enough to
1 support me, with prudence on her part,
wuz bliss itseif, and I enjoyed it with a
degree of muchness rarely ekaied until 1
found out that it wuz kivered more deep'y
with mortgages than it wuz ever likely to
be with crops, and ray dream uv happines
busted. Sweet ez wuz this week it wuz
misery condensed w hen compared to the
season I hev just passed through.
1 wuz a delegate to Philadelphia! I
wuzn't elected nor nothiu, and hedn't any
credentials, but the door uv the Wigwam I
passed nevertheless. The doorkeeper wuz
a oi l Dimoktat, and rcy breath helped me,
my no>e, which reely blossoms like the
!ob-ter, wuz uv yoose, and I spect my hevin
a gray coat on with a stand up collar, with
a brass star onto it, wuz wat finished the
biznis. The Southern delegates fought
shv uv me, but the Northern ones; bless
their souls, the minit they saw the star on
the collar uv my great coat, couldn't do
enuff for me. They addressed me ez Ker
nel and Gineral, and sed "this wu£ trooiy
an unmeritid honor," and paid my drinks, 1
and I succeeded in borrowin a hundred and
twenty dollars uv em on the first day, I
might hev doubled it, but the fellows wuz
to 'k in so eay that no financeerin wuz re
quired and it reely wuz no araoozinent.
The Convenshun itself w uz the most af
fectini?t gatherin 1 ever witnist. I hed a
seat beside Randall, who wuz a managiu
the concern, and I coo id see it all. The
crowd rushed into the bildin, and filled it,
w hen Randal Idesired attention. He bein
the Postmaster-General, every one of em
dropped into his seat ez though he hed bin
shot, and there waz the most perfeck quiet
I ever saw. Doolittle, who wuz the Cheer
man. winked at Randall, and nodded his
head, when Randall announced that THE
DELEGATES FROM SOUTH KARLIXY AND
THE DELEGATES FROM MASSAC AOOSITS
WOOD ENTER ARM IN ARM ! With asi W
and measure 1 step they cum in, and at a
signal from Randall, the cheerin com mens!,
and sich cheerin! Then Doolittle pulled
out his whi;e handkereher and applied it
to his eyes, and every delegate simultane
ously pulled out a white handketcher and
applied it to his eyes.
To tne this wuz the proudest moment
uv my life, not that there wuz anything
partikilerly inspiritin in the scene afore me,
for there wuzzent. Orr, from South Kar
oliny, looked partikilerly ashamed cf his
self, ez though he wuz going through a
highly nessary but extremely disgustiu
ceremony, and wuz determined to keep a
stitf upper lip over it, and Couch looked
up to Orr n.s though he wuz at'ecrd uv him
and ez though he felt fiattered by Orr's
condescension in walkin at all with such
a urable individjooal. But to my eyes the
scene wuz significant. I looked into the
fueher and wh .t did I see ez thein two
i men, one sneakiu and tother ashamed uv
hisself, walked up that aisle? Wat did I
see ? I saw tire Democrisy restored to its
nateral condisbun —I saw the reunion uv
the two wings—in fact I saw the entire
Diiuokratic bird reunited. The North oc"e
wing, and the weakest; Kentucky the beak,
sharp, hungry and rapacious; South West,
the strong, active wing; Yirgiuny, the legs
and claws; Ohio, the heart; Pennsylvania,
the stomach; South Caroliny, the tail feath
ers, and Noo-Jersey, the balance uv the
Urd. I saw these parts, for five years dis
severed, come together holdin nigger in
one claw and post-offices in the other, sain,
"Take 'em both together—they go in lous."
I saw the oid Union—the.bold, sbivelrous
Southerner a gtridin, controlling and di
rectin the machine, and assomin to hisself
the places uv honor, and the Dimokrat uv
the North follerin like a puppy dog at his
heels; taking sich fat things ez lie cood
snap up—the Southerner ashamed uv his
associations but forced to yoose 'em —the
Northerner uncomfortable in his presence
' but tied to bim by interest. I saw a
j com in back the good old times when 34
States met in convenshun and let 11 rule
'em, and ez I contemplated the scene I too
wept, but it wuz in dead earnest.
"What are you blubberin for? asked a
enthoosiastic delegate in front uv me who'
was a swabbin his eyes with ahandkercher.;
"I'm a postmaster," sez I, "and must do'
my dooty in this crisis. M hat are you
aheddin pearls for," retorted I. "Are you
a postmaster ?"
"No," sez he, "but I hope to be," and
lie swabbed away with renood vigor.
"Wat's the matter with the eyes uv all
the delegates ?" sez I.
"They've all got postoffiees in 'em," sez
he, and he worked awav faster than ever.
While gettin afresh handkercher (which
I borrered from the hind coat pocket uv a
delegate near me, and wich, by the way,
in my delirious jcy, I forgot to say anythin
to him about it), I looked over the Con
vention, and agin the teers welled up from
my heart. My soul wuz full and over-j
flow in, and I slopped over a the eyes;
there, before me, sat that hero Dick Taylor
and Cuth Bullitt, and there wuz the Nel
sons and Yeadons and the representatives
uv the first families of the South, and in
Philadelphia, at a Convenshun. with all the
leadin Democratic, uv the North, ceptin
Vallandigham and Wood, and they wuz
skulkin around within call, with their
watchful eyes on the proceedings. Here is
a prospeck ! Here is fatnis! The Presi
dent into our confidence! The Postmaster
a runuin the Convention! The bands a
plavin Dixie and the Star Spangled Ban
ner alternitly, so that nobody cood complain
uv partiality, or tell reely wich side the
Convention wnz on, or wich side it had
been on in the past. Ah! my too sus
ceptible sole filled up agin, the tears started,
but that vent wazn't enuff, and I fell faint
nig on the floor. Twenty or 30 Northern
delegates seed me fa!iin, and ketehin site
uv the gray coat with the star onto it,
rushed to ketch me, and they bore me out
uv the Wigwam. Sed one: "Wat a techin
scene, overpowered by his fealins!" "Yes,"
sed another, "he deserves a apintment!"
I didn't go back to the Convenshun coz
I know d it want no voose, and besides after
all the tears that had been shed, the mem
bers wringin - their handkerchiefs onto the
fiuor, it v* uz sloppy underfoot. Concilia
tion and tenderness gushed out uv em. I
knowd it would be all right— it couldn't
be otherwise. There wuz bonds which
held the members together and prevented
the possibility uv trouble. Johnson hevin
a ambition to head r. party, must hev a
party to head. The Northern delegashim
which hed formerly actid with the Abiish
nists, couldn't do nothin without the De
mocracy South. The President cood de
pend on the Democrisy North, coz he hold
the offices; the Democracy Noith couid
depend on the President coz he must hev
their votes; the President cool depend on
the Democracy oouth coz they want him
to make a fight agin a Aboli-ken Congris,
wich is a unconstitooshnelly keepin uv em
out and preventin em from wolloping their
niggers; the Democracy South cood depend
on the President coz he must have their
Representatives in their seats to beat the
Abolislmists in Congris; all cood depend
on all, each cood depend on the other, c">z
each faction or rather each stripe lied it?
iitt'e private axe to grind wich it coodent
do without the others to turn the griud
The Southern delegates, some on 'era,
wuzzent so well pleased.
"What in thunder," sed one uv em, "oil
they mean by pilin on the agony over the
Yanks we killed ?—by plcdgin us to give
up the ijee uv seceshen, and by pie Igin on
us to pav the Nashnel Yankee debt?"
"Sh!" sed I, "easy over the rough places.
My friend, they didn't mean it. or if thev
did tee didn't. Is an oath so hard to break ?
Wood it trouble that eminent patriot Breck
inridge, after all the times he swore to sup
port the Constitution, to swara to it wun-t
more? and wood it trouble him to break ii
any more than it did in '6l ? Nay verily.
Dismiss them gloomy thots. Yadandig
ham was kicked out, but a thousand mules,
and ail uv em old and experienced, coodn't
kick lum cut cf our service. Doolittle
talked Northern talk coz its a habit he got
into doorin the war, but he'll get over it.
Ravmond will be on our side this year,
certain, for last year he wuz agin u>, and
by the time he is ready to turn agin he'll
be worn to so small a pint that lie won't
be worth hevin, and the Dimocrisy uv the
North wuz alluz ourn, and if they wuzzent
the offices Johnson hez iu reserve will draw

PETROLEUM V. NASBT, P. M.
(which is Postmaster.)
The Potter Journal , as well as the rest
of our Republican coteurporaries, who have
had it continually belched into their ears
by the rebel press, the copperhead organ in
this town, that General James A. Beaver,
H. N. Me A.bister, Esq., and other old Re
publicans had joined that little Brigade
now being led into temptations by the
bread and butter which the murderer of J.
Wilkes Booth placed in the hands of An
drew Johnson, will find, by referring to the
proceedings of the Union Republican Mass
Meeting which was held in Bellefonte on
Wednesday evening last, that the Genera!
, is not the apostate to the great principles
which saved this country during the rebel
lion, and to maintain which with his sword,
be narrowly escaped death from a rebel bul
let in that terrible conflict with the traitor
army at Chancellorsville, and sacrificed a
leg in the last sanguinary struggles before
- o • ZD
Richmond We were called upon by our
brethren of the press in this District, to
deny that Gen. Beaver would accept the
Copper-Johnson nomination for Cougress,
and to state the truth as to his alledged
hostility towards Gen. Geary. We deemed
it unnecessary to do so, knowing the whole
to be a lie, —and the charge an irapossibil
ity on the part of a soldier such as Gen.
Beaver truly is. Mr. McAllister is in favor
of Andrew Johnson's " policy of making
treason odious and punishing traitors,"
and so are we! He is in favor of the
Amendments to the Constitution, an 1 so
are we; he is in favor of the election of Gen.
John W. Geary and the entire Union
County Ticket.which is principally made up
of woun led and capable soldiers, and so are
i we; and if the lying Watchman can recog
nize in the PRESS a friend of the late trea
-onable policy of Booth's Copperhead Pres
; idetit, it has Ic<s than nothing to hope for
■ in the coming electious when the people
. will so thoroughly repudiate Copperheads.
- treason and traitors, as to entirely clean out
. that dangerous tribe. The Watchman is
now aware that it lied; that it will retract
is out of the question: iLs business is to de
i fame loyal men, all of whom it hates, and
: to white-wash, as best it can, the charac
i ters of all its seekers after bread and but
i ter at the public crib. Our Union Repub
i lican friends can now see anew with what
• biazen-faced impudent zeal this Copper
head sheet puts forth falsehood upon fa'se
hood in order to deceive, ''"he best Johu
son men in Centre county are the worst

valorous deeds of our brave soldiers, and
dishonor the cause in which they fought,
bled and died.— Beliefont Press.

The President is no egotist—oh no. lie
forgets himself entirely when he essays to
■ address the public, and soars away into re
, rions remote from A. Johnson. This is so,
if he understands himself, and "he thinks
• he do." In his speech- to the delegation
from the Philadelphia Convention,he vindi
cated his native moJesty in the following
"Mr. Chairman and gentlemen; Let tri",
. in this connection, ask you what can / wish
more than the advancement of the public
welfare ? lam as much opposed to the
■ indulgence of egotism as any one."
In proof of this delectable piece cf mod
-1 estv, the Chicago Tribune has taken an
inventory of the personal allusions tohim
• self in the speech of fifteen minutes, of
which the above is a part, and it is found
that he lias referred to himself in that effort
more than one hundred times. Ilere is
the Tribune's statement of the case. He
alluded to A. Johnson as
This humble individual 1 time.
Mvself 5 times.
Me 11 times.

Besides speaking of himself one hundred
and fifteen times, in the singular number,
he rings in the plural "us" four times,
"ours" three times, "we about twenty
times. "1 am as much opposed to egotism

Th 3 Court House Bell in Sunbury.
At the recent opening of the now court
house in Sunblry, His Honor Judge Jor
dan, delivered an appropriate address, frotxl
which we extract the following:
'•Toe large and excellent bell that called
I us together this morning, is the gift of Gen;
Simon Cameron to the citizens of Sunbury;
where, when a youth, he lived for several
years, but to be used in the court house for
the benefit of the citizens of the county:
He is a native of Lancaster county. His
father and family removed to this place in
March, 1808, where the father soon after,
lied. The General was then nine years of
age. After the death of his father he lived
in the family of Dr. Peter Grahl, of this
place, who adopted him as his son and
heir. The Doctor, at that time, was a man
of considerable wealth, highly cultivated
manners, of varied and extensive Darning
—was a foreigner bv birth, and had seen
much of the world. He died about thq
year 181G, having before bis death wasted
all his property.
"The General was thus left to combat
with the world—a poor orphan boy. At
the age of sixteen he left Suubury, to wliiolf
he was much attached, and where he ac
quired a taste for literature, to seek his for
tune among strangers. Then ho was
known but by few. Mow, no one in bis
native State is ignorant of his history for
the last thirty years. He has occupie I
some of the most important positions and
offices in the Government. On some ineu
fortune never smiles; their pathway through'
life is dark and dreary, and if occasionally
a ray of sunshine darts across their path, it
is followed by dark clouds And gloomy
prospects. Not so with Gen. Cameron.
Fortune's smiles have not often been with
held from him. For the people of Sun
bury, the descendants of the friends of his
, early life, he cherishes a strong attachment;
. and for the last forty-nine years has not
. failed to pay an annual visit to his old loved
. home, w here, perhaps, he laid the founda
tion of his future prosperity and usefulness*
• He lias presented the citizens of Sunbury
. with a gift that, long after he, and him
who now addresses you, have p;issedotf tho
: stage of action, will awaken by its solemn'
. peals grateful memories of him who be
: stowed it.''

Don't Like Rebels or Copperhead'.
John Otto, who subscribes to the card
hereto attached, joined Gen. (then Captain*
Henderson's company on its first organiza
tion, and served faithfully with it through
out the entire war; nine months of the
time he sutTered as a prisoner in the horri
ble pen al An lersonville. Three years of
' such' stern lessons as the war against trea-'
son's rebellion alone could impart have en
tirely cured him of any leaning towar I
Copperheadism. Who wonders that the
brave boy is indignant at tho use of his",
name as presiding officer of a meeting of
those men who encouraged a war in his
rear when lie was battling in front, and
who are now laboaing day and night toel
vate to the Gubernatorial chair of our Stat-*
a meaner enemy than those who starved
him and his brethren at An lerson'viile ?
Here is the letter Mr. Otto sends us—it is
to the point:
Ma. EDITOR: —In the Volunteer of the
fCh of August, I am represented as hav
ing acted as President of a Clymer meet
ing in South Middleton township. Ide
sire to say that the statement is unquali
fieilv false. Three years service in the war
just past, and nine months in Anderson-'
1 ville prison entirely cured me of any syni
■ pathy with Southern rebels an i Northern
• Copperheads. I fought for my country, I
will vote for it. and must and will vote for
Gearv and the Union ticket.
. Respectfully; JOHN OTTO.
YALDANDIGHAM os THE STDMP. —The
Democratic State Central Committee of
Ohio has put Yallandighara on the stump,
.assigning him more appointments than .ire
given to anv other of the orators.'

This is the man that is put forward u

sailors who saved the ration, if they are
prepared to mingle with afecf Yfiow those
