Soldiers' State Convention—nations'
The Soldiers' State Convention which
assembled at Pittsburg on the sth inst.,
adopted the following platform :
WEEE.Eas, We, the representatives
of the soldiers and sailors of Pennsyl
vania, assembled in Convention in obe
dience to a call recognized and formally
acted upon throughout the Common
wealth, having in remembrance the suf
ferings and trials endured by the sol
diers and sailors of the Union in their
successful struggle against the gigantic
rebellion, aud being determined to per
petuate the great principles established
by our arms and sanctified by the blood
of our fallen comrades, do resolve,
1. That we return to the Omnipotent
Ruler of the Universe our sincere and
heartfelt thanks for the crowning victo
ries vouchsafed to our efforts against a
rebellion which had for its object the
destruction of our great republic.
2. That the tender care exercised by
the Government and the people for the
remains of our martyred heroes, and for
their widows and orphans, commands
our warmest gratitude.
3. That it is contrary to public policy
aud subversive of the great principles
won by patriotic blood, to permit any to
hold offices of honor or profit under the
General Government, who by word or
deed embarrassed the Union armies or
cast odium upon the cause for which
4. That the soldiers of PennsNlvania
should organize in their respective coun
ties to take care that the triumph of our
arms be not fruitless, and the just re
sults of our great endeavors remain un
gathered, by concessions of any of the
material points in issue in the struggle,
to the defeated party, or by yieldingd
vantag fairlyowon ; and we propose
the following platform as the basis of
c. That such treatment should be ac
corded to the defeated foe as the most
chivalric magnanimity requires—but
without yielding a principle, compro
mising a right,
,or above all, deserting
6. That such and so many guaranties
shall be demanded from the South and
incorporated in the National Constitu
tion, as are necessary to prevent recur
ring rebellion, secure justice and free
dom to men of all classes, conditions
and colors. and guard the national faith
7. That rebels ought not to be precip
itated into power before such guaranties
have been obtained; and that, accord
ingly, Congress, to which rightfully per
tains all questions of reconstruction,
should be cordially sustained in their de
mands for such guaranties.
8. That with the beginning of the
war, the nation took a new departure,
and henceforth her Constitution will be
held in the interest of liberty, justice
and security, according to l the rights of
its preamble and the immortal Declara
tion of Independence, under the teach
ings of its authors and compatriots.—
Too long already has it been interpreted
in the interests of slavery and caste.
9.-That Major General John W. Gea
ry, having given the best evidence of
his devotion to' the Union during the
late rebellion, by volunteering in its de
fense and serving faithfully during the
war, when many, like Hiester Clymer,
who now claim to be equally' patriotic,
were rendering aid and comfort to the
rebels; and he now being before the
people of Pennsylvania as a candidate
for the office of Governor, we, his fel
low soldiers in that time of trial, pledge
to him our support, and ask the same
froM, all those who acknowledge the
debtl of gratitude due from the country
to its saviors.
10. That the soldiers of Pennsylvania
recognize no warmer or truer friend
than Andrew G. Curtin. His name is
our watchword, .his fame is' our hope,
and his record is our glory. The un
swerving love of the " Soldiers' Friend"
will be reciprocated by unfaltering de
11. That we apjridil hopefully to Con
gress for speedy justice in the equaliza
tion of bounties to the soldiers.
12. That believing that " treason is a
crime, and that traitors should be pun
ished," we deniand that leading trai
tors should be COnvicted and executed,
as an example to traitors for all time to
13. That this Convention is able to
express its sentiments upon the whole
matr of issues and candidates in four
word, which may answer for our ban
nersiin the pending political campaign
—God Grant Geary Victory.
14. That the legislation whereby Con
gress attempted to defend and protect
our allies—theAoyal men of the South
—against the deadly hatred of the com
mon enemy, and to make good to a race
the freedom proffered as the price of aid,
and awarded as the due of loyalty, de
serves our unqualified approval.
15. That we request Congress so to
legislate as to protect American indus
try by a high protective tariff.
Resolved, Tnat the loyal majority in
Congress deserve our gratitude; that
radical evils require radieal remedies,
and that the nation shotild take no step

The arrival of a steamer with news of
impending war in Europe, sent gold up
to 160 in New, York, on Saturday last.
There seems little doubt of the inevita
bility of a grand European war. .
THIS PICTURE AND THAT
We are about to delitteato a character,
which will be recognized by very many
who visited the hospitals in and around
Washington during the last two and a
half years of the war.
Men who regard woman only with
the eyes of unkempt passion, who are
faithless to their,iwives, and forgetful of
their mothers, sisters, and daughters,
need not read this. It will not interest
them ; for it is the portrait of one of the
purest, most unselfiSh, and self-sacrific
ing women who ever crowned a. land
with honor. '
This woman (we do not .strain at the
word "lady") was reared in indepen
dence in a quiet. New England town,
and but for the war of the rebellion
might never have been heard from much
beyond her native county. But when
the hospitals began to fill with sick and
wounded heroes, she left home, and es
tablished a sort of local Sanitary Com
mission in Washington.
She had a depot in one of the rooms
on the basement floor of the Treasury
Department building, the permission to
occupy being given by the Government.
Here she stowed away the thousand and
one boxes, barrels. and bales of hospital
supplies sent to her by New England
mothers and daughters. When the hos
pitals were oveicrowded,.aud. supplies
of this sort hard to be got at, and red
tape, very red indeed, her depot of stores
was always comeatable. The door was
opened early, and stood wide open all
day,, week in and week out, until more
cumbrous establishments with great
names figuring among their directors
and agents got into working order.
Well we remember the Sunday fol
lowing the battle of Spotsylva - nia Court
House—when every north and south
running street in Washington was oc
cupied by a long and slow moving pro
cession of ambulances, filled with woun
ded men ; when the hospitals proved
too small, and tents were reared all over
the spacious grounds surrounding each
hospital; when you could hardly look
into an ambulance or hospital ward
and not see a familiar face, grim with
dust, and not seldom stained with blood ;
when the grocers failed with supplies of
fruit, canned, and dried, and fresh ; and
the precision with which the Sanitary
and Christian Commissions worked and
did wonders, shut out individual Sani
tary Commissions; then—when neither
love nor money could get a few oranges,
or peaches, or other supplies—there was
ever a round basketful of supplies to be
got at the depot in the basement of the
Treasury Department, and an invitation
to come and get more.
Sometimes the supplies ran short,
even here, in variety ; and in such ca
se's t 's woman went out and purchased,
with lier own money, whateveir she
lacked. She purchased many hundred
dollars worth, from time to time—lend
ing her fortune to Heaven, and charg
ing no usury. •
When the war closed, and the horrors
of Salisbury and Andersonville were
fully revealed, this unselfish woman
conceived the idea of visiting both pla
ces, for the purpose of making a register
of the names of Union victijns of rebel
barbarity, and thus carry a few rays of
sunshine into , thousands of. Northern
homes. Receiving permission from the
Government, she departed on her no
ble mission. To accomplish her object,
she sacrificed time, health, and $15,000
of her fortune.
She returned to receive the thanks of
tens of thousands who stood by the Gov
ernment during its trial. the brought
no claim against the Government, but
men, ashamed to have it said that a
Massachusetts woman Lad more patri
otism than the balance of the people of
the Republic, procured an appropriation
to cover the amount expenged , out of
her private fortune.
This woman deserved, and received,
great praise. Every Republican jour
nal in the nation publicly tendel ell her
the thanks of the people. All men and
women noted for their benevolence and
liberality, felt the nobleness of this wo
man, andiaid, " Well and nobly done!"
That is one picture.
Now look on this:
The journalists of this faction which
calls itself " Democratic," and its lesser
sleuth-bounds, pounced upon this wo
man as if she were a -thief and a swin
dler. We opened no exchange of that
base sort that did not speak sneeringly
and contemptuously of C.L.A_BA. BARTort,
as a Woman's Rights visionary, a fana
tic, or a preyer upon the public moneys:
They affected to disbelieve that she ex
pended any money in the prosecution
of her mission. They declared her mis
sion " Quixotic," useless, and extrava
gane In short, the conservators of
" Democratic" morals never made men
tion of Miss Barton save in a slighting
manner, as if she were guilty of some
crime against society. ,
What is the moral? This : That this:
remnant ofthe "Democratic" party 'is
hostile, to everything noble and gOod,
everything which tends to moral pro
gress among men,an d everything fraught
with truth and beauty. Naturally en
ough, too ; for; if true nobility, true
goodness, and truth itself, live and flour
ish, IT must die. And only by elimina
ting these godlike (panties of mind and
heart from human charadter, can that
debased political party, thrive among an,
As some skeptical people appear to
doubt the validity of Rester Clymer's
claim upon the gratitude and support of
honorably discharged soldiers, we make
haste to present a brief of evidence go
ing to show that they owe him some
thing which ought to be paid. 'For in
On the 2d of April, 1864; a resolution
came up for final action in the State
Senate, requesting our Senators and
Representatives in Congress to vote for
a law to increase the pay of private sol
diers and non-commissioned officers in
the army. The resolution being upon
its final, passage, Mr. Hiester Clymer,
and fourteen Other "Dekliocratic" Sena=
tors, voted "NO." .
On the final passage of the amend
ment to the Constitution permitting sol
diers to vote in camp and field, same
year, Mr. Hiester Clymer dodged, as did
seven other "Democratic" Senators,
and the nays were seven; all " Demol
On the 81st of March, 1864, the bill
providing for and regulating elections
held by soldiers in camp or in the field,
came up on its final passage. Mr. Hies
ter Clymer, with twelve other " Demo
crats," voted " NO."
If any honorably discharged soldier
of the war does not see that he is under
obligations to support Mr. Clymer upon
that brilliant record, then we must give
him up. _
An election was lately held in West
Virginia to accept or reject an amend
ment to the State Constitution disfran
chising those who voluntarily aided in
the rebellion. The amendment was
ratified by a large majority.
A vote of the truly loyal - men in eve
ry Southern State, would ratify just
such an amendment to each State Con
stitution. The only persons who object
to a disfranchisement of rebels, are reb
els and their Northern sympathizers.
PETROLEUM NASBY writes some of
the best things now current in political
literature. We call attention to his let
ter on the outside of this paper, with'
the frank avowal of opinion, that in all
the discussion of the Bible aspect of
slavery, no D. D., or, L. D., has ever
so completely squelcffd the pro-slavery
argument for slavery. It was Horace
who said that " Ridicule shall cut the
knot when graver reasons fail."
In our notice of the Pittsburg Sol
diers' Convention last week, our readers
will call to mind an allusion to a Berk's
county delegate who was conducted
from the Convention by a committee of
two one 7 legged soldiers. His Offence
was that of declaring his intention to
vote for Hiester Clymer. One of the
Reading papers makes a great ado about
this proscriptive action of the Conven
tion, and declares that the ejected dele-.
gate was a " veteran," had passed thro'
the perils of march, and camp, and bat
tle, and had served as long as any mein
ber of the Convention.
Upon this, one, who signs himself a
" four years' soldier," writes the Phila
delphia Press that the delegate alluded
to only served six weeks, never crossed
the Potomac, and never smelt gunpow-.
der in even a skirmish. In proof of
which, he refers to the ejected delegate
However, we are surprised that even
a six weeks' old soldier 6hould declare
his intention to vote for Mr. Clymer.—
His record, as published last week,
ought to turn the stoluailli of any true

to comply with their requests. I fourd the coun

levet The soil is rich and deep. There is tim
ber enough. and stone plenty; limestone of the
very best quality; Stone coal in abundance. ' Ta
king all things into consideration, it is a rich and
beautiful country; and besides all this, " Uncle
Sam" has proposed to give to each of his boys
who want farms 160 acres of beautiful prairie,
with a fine stone quarry, good water, and all of
these fine things thereon. And aside from this,
he will pasture and furnish mowing ground for
all the stock they have a mind to keep.
Come, one and all, who have no farms; and my
advice would be the same to some who have farms.
Mechanics' wages, are good here. I say to the
boys of Charleston, come and see your friends,
who left there but a• few weeks ago for the west,
and have taken up land near the beautiful little
town of Middlebnrgh ; of whom I mention Ruloff
Duryea, Wm. L. Reese, David L. Bacon, Alonzo
Johnson, and Chester P. Kimball.
The land is being taken up very fast. During
the month of April, -75,000 acres of land were
.taken ap in Nebraska. Now is the accepted time.
This Territory, in my opinion, will become, a
State this coining fall, and in two years there will
not be one foot of government land in Nebraska.
Come along boys; don't be alarmed—for . " Uncle
Sam" is rich enough to give us all a farm.

most ample, brilliant and readable book that the
war has called forth.
