' Ire March, 1866,- the Union party as- •
sembled in _convention to nominate a '
candidate for ,Governor. It reaffirmed
its patriotic principles as proclaimed and.
fought - for tithing the war, and declared
it to be the right and duty - of Congress
to prescribe the. terms of recon.struction.
On this platform Major Gen. John W.
Geary was nominated for Governor by
a unanimous vote, and subsequently his
nomination -was enthusiastically en
'clorsed by a large and intelligent CQII
- of thesoldiers and sailors of the
State. He is . uo obscure personage, bid
one "of the'representatlye men of these
eventful times. As a civilian he has
tilled with ability and distinction many
iMportant public positions, requiring
intelligence, discretion and the highest
order of integrity and adthinistrative
ability: He has been a fanner, a teach
er, a civil engineer, alawyer, and a man
ufacturer. lie has served the people as
postmaster autl mayor of a city, and
as Governor,of a Territory. As a vol
unteer Soldier he is the pride of his coin
' rades,`and in honor to his State. He
went out from home to the iliftexican
war -as a Captain, and came back with
honors as-the Colonel of his regiment.
He entered the service in . the late re
bellion as a 'Colonel, and fought it all
the way through, having been promoted
to the exalted. rank of Major General.
" for fitness to command. and prompt
' ness to execute." This valiant and
faitliftil soldier was present and partici-7
gated in siXty battles, and was four
timeswetinded in action, but never once
defeated. He matte the entire circuit of
the rebel Confederacy, -and fought its
authors and defender's from every State
that atlitioWiedired their usurped au-'
thority. He has given to his country
nis first-barn son, killed in battle; he
has_ periled Ins Me, and pled lies blood
for the flag and cause of our country ;
andhe bears upon his person the honor

Such' is the candidate. pre , ented for the

the attack on Fort Sumter had fired the

In 1863 Mr. Clymer ,voted against the
bill to enable our soldiers and sailors to
vote, when absent in the service.
In 1864 he dodged the vote on the pro

In February, 1864, in a speech in' the
Senate,' referring- to the recent defeat of
Vallandigham in- Ohio, and of Wood
ward in Pennsylvania, Mr., Clymer
said: " I say now and believe. that it
was the greatest calamity has yet

„Such is, an , outline of the inglorious

and candidates we most confidently ap
peal to the patriotic voters of the Key
stone State for a most emphatic verdict
id favor of the right. -

, eini-inilitary secret organizations,, and
the members are admitted by initiation,
at which the candidate " places his
right hand on his left breast," and en
ters into most solemn Vows to " vote
against all men who are willing to give
the negro either political or social equal

District or Territory of this country."
Their watchwords are "Silence," "
bedience;" "
It is a pity the great light of these
magnanimous patriots should be longer
concealed under a bushel, and that they
can rind nothing more important to do,
in this great crisis of our country's fates'
But forewarned should be forearmed.—
Guard well against these insidious ap
peals to the prejudices of our people,
and attempts to -lead them by such
means. Be, not deceived by, the stale
clamor about negro eqUality and negro
suffrage. These favorite hobbies were
supposed to have been ridden to death
at our last election, when, as now, they
were declared by these same men to be
the-great issnc of the contest. They
are now raised up and brought upon the
track again, mounted by the sanie rid
ers, and destined to the' same ignoble
end. The Constitution of Pennsylva
nia permits only white men to vote.—
By its terms it can be amended only
owe in every rive years; and having
been amended in 18(14, allowing soldiers
the right to vote, it cannot, in conform
ity with its own provisions, be amend
ed again until 1569. It is hoped, there
fore, that our Democratic friends will
restrain themselves, and not press ne
gro suffrage upon us before authorized
by the Constitution of the State.
Complete your township anu county
organizations without delay ; revive at
once everywhere the Leagues and As
sociations which proved of such vast
service during the war; let every friend
feel that he has something to do, and do
it with all his might., Exclude side is
sues, and suppress all local quarrels and
personal aspirations, and labor only for
the public good. See to it that all need
ful assessments are made in due time.—
Be not discouraged by the boasting and
clamor of our adversaries ; they have
been ingloriously defeated in every con
test for years, aml cannot prevail against
us. Nothing hut our base betrayal by
the President and the hope of office
could have galvanized them into
cient itatity to make another light a
gainst the victorious hosts of freedom
The physical conflict, for the time at
least, is ended, but the moral emilliet
betw,een loyalty and disloyalty eontin
ues=and the grave question is, whether
the one or the other shall rule the State
and the nation. We urge harmony, en
ergy, systematic, associated and indi
vidual labor, and a renewal of the fires
of patriotism. The loyal and patriotic
people of the State have nobly sustained
us and the cause of the country, under
the heavy pressure and discouragements
of drafts, bereavement, taxation and
carnage, and when nothing but an abi
ding midi in the justice of God could
enable us to see the end. Surely there
can be no faltering now, when the goal
is almost reached, and when one more
united rally for our prineiplee and our
flag- Ai ill enable us to secure the ripe
fruits cif the late dreadful conflict, and
to garner them sate/y - for ourselves and
our children.
We stand over the ruins of a gigantic
rebellion, the most formidable enemy
republican institutions ever enconnter

hundred thousand of our noblest men,
who counted- their lives well spent when
offered freely "for libertY and Union.—
In the presepee of their speechless but

doubting and sneering enemies of free

To the Soldiers:
It is presuMed that the majority of
you have thought More or less of the
matter to m'hich your attention is hricil
called in this communication. There
are some however who in the midst of
the cares, perplexities. and excitment
of bysinessbr labor,. are too apt to un
derrate the importahee - which attach es
to subjects of this character, and conse
quently neglectgiviug them proper con
sideration. It is to the latter class that
this article is chiefly directed. The
writer is neither a scheming politician
nor an ambitious Brigadier General, as
piring for office, lint one who is proud
of the name, and satisfied with the lau
rels of a private soldier.
Having, in common with you all,
marched, carried a musket and knap
sock, suffered and fought during four
long years of alternate hope and des
pondency—sea,ons of rejoicing over vic
tories won, and moments of deep gloom
and'sad requiem over disasters and fal
len comrades—and finally mingled his
voice with yours, and that of every loy
al American, in swelling,"the last grand.
triumphal shout of victory, announc
ing the glad tidings that treason and
traitors were overthrown, the war end
ed, the Union saved! lie is prepared to
regard you and talk toyou as comrades,
In a republic like ours, wherein every
man is an individual sovereign, where
the ballot of the beggar goes as far as
that of the wealthy, proud aristroerat,
aL whose table he asks for crumbs, in
swelling the grand 'aggre•:rate of opin
ion which finally decides flute of the
nation, there is a time when it becomes
theduty of every citizen, however hum
ble, to lay aside the implements of his
avocation, and reflect as to how he can
bz.t discharge the responsibilities thus
vested in hint. II ibis .be true of the
citizen in general, are there nor greater
obligations resting on him who, in jeop
ardizing his life in defence of the e-
public in time or , national peril, Invited
the confidence of his countrymen in his
loyalty and patriotism! There can be

now ; the good old banner around which
we rallied so many times, riddled and
torn by shot and shell, and emblazoned
with the names of a score of battles, is
resting quietly around its staff, laid a
way as a memento pf tha&terrible past;
the war is pronounced Ailed, and peace
declared ;—but our enemies are neither
dead nor vanquished. Be not deceived.
Throughout the nation, and especially
in our own State, they are rallying their
forces in a desperate attempt to accom
plish by intrigue, political cunning and
the ballot, that which their more bold
and manly allies of the South failed to
secure by the arbitrament of battle.—
Their standard hearer in Pennsylvania
is Hiester Clymer. We know nothing
of Mr. Clymer as a private citizen. We
presume he is a gentleman. Jeff Davis
and Gen. Lee are gentlemen. We only
know that Mr. C. was drafted during
the war, and furnished a substitute,
William J. Marshall, who served and
proved a good soldier as a member of
company G, 45th Pennsylvania regi
ment. It is the Copperhead candidate's
history as a politician, and especially_ as
a legislator in the balk of our State cap
ital, that every loyal man', and particu
larly he who has worn the " bine,"
should despise. Hiester Clymer voted
to disfranchise you. He voted against
increasing your pay as soldiers. He
cast his ballot against every measure
calculated to strengthen the army, ame
liorate the condition of the soldiers, or
in any way assist the nation in crush
ing the rebellion. He voted against
tendering a vote of thanks to General
Grant for leading our armies to victory.
la fact, his career as a member of the
Pennsylvania Legislature; and an influ
ential politician during the war, was
one continuous, systematic effort to
weaken the Government, encourage its
enemies, and dampen the ardor of its
defenders. He, and such as he, rejoiced
at every disaster of our arms, and sank
into melancholy on hearing of the de
feat of our enemies. A Peace Democrat
from the beginning, a Copperhead in
all his actions; and if "going back" on
our Government in time of danger, and
giving aid and comfort to its enemies,"
means treason, - Hiester Clymer is cer
tainly a very mean traitor. What is
worse, with this shameful record snit.-
log hint in the face, he and his political
friends have the impudence to ask the
soldiers to vote for him. These fellows
are trying hard to get into the good gra
ces of those now, whom they denounced
as "Lincoln hirelings" a few months
ago. They evidently have as much
" brass" as copper about them. Don't
let them deceive you. "They are your
enemies_ Hiester Clymer is your ene
my. He hates you to-day, as bad as
does :Teti: Davis, who murdered and
starved, or caused to be murdered and
starved, hundreds and thousands of
your comrades, in Andersonville and
Salisbury. We expect that deserters,
skulkers, and skedaddlers generally,
will vote that ticket, if they vote at all.
Smooth-tongued politicians and the
Copperhead press are telling these fel
lows that the act unjustly ‘':a disfrah
-chising them will he repealed, and at
the amp time are patting and cooing
these sneaking heroes of the rear into
their ranks. Let them go; we don't
want them. They deserted us in time
of danger before, and we have no right
to expect they will stand by us now.—
But for him Who voluntarily left his
home, his wife, his father and mother,
his children, and all that he loved and
eherisited on earth, to suffer, fight, and
if necessary die, that the nation might
live; to turn around now and cast his
ballot in favor of those who' sympa
thized, heart and soul, with the enemy
he was then fighting, who scoffed at his
patriotism, cheered and made glad over
Iris defeats and sufferings—stabbed him
in the hack in co-operation with their
more respectable allies of the South,—
why every sensible mind will involun
tarily promantue the soldier whey will
do that, either a harmless fool or a trai
tor to his country, to his comrades, and
I to himself.
From this revolting- view of ingrati
tude and disloyalty, let us turn to the
chosen candidate of the Union Repub
lican Convention, and see if in him we
cannot find z,uniething more worthy our
patronage and influence. .forfx AV.
GEATty is et soldier—a distinguished,
loyal, and gallant soldier. His first lau
rel, were w on during the Mexican war,
at Cerro Gordo and the oily of Mexico,
where distinguished himself and
was promoted. His history, as one of
the heroes of the war against rebellion,
is too familiar and fresh in your minds
to need much comment or details. En
tering the army at the beginning of the
contest, he fought gallantly and won
imperishable renown as a vigilant, act
ive and effieient officer, both in the Po
tomac 'army and subsequently in the
stirring exploits of Sherman's legions.
Uen- Geary participated in many of the
prominent battles of the war, and was
several times wounded. He greatly dis
tinguished liiinQelf at Gettysburg, and
fought with Hooker under the clouds at
Lookout Mountain, where his son was
slain, fighting by his side.
Previous to the breaking out of the
rebellion, Gen. (:cart' had obtained a
name of considerable distinction as a
public man. In 1848, being then a res
ident of San Francisco, California, he
was chosen the first Mayor of that city.
In July, 1854, during the reign of terror
i n " bleeding Kansas,'' he was appoint
ed Governor of that Territory, which
position he filled with beneficial result s
to the country and honor to himself, un
til March, thereby fitting himself
for the responsible position to which he
now aspires, and which he has since so
richly merited.
A veteran soldier, a tried statesman,
a nd an uneornprfunising friend! of uni
versal liberty, the name of John \V.
Geary is a shining light in that galaxy
of eminent, patriotic heroes, whose rec
ord will fill find illumine the pages of
history for ages to come. Such is he
who carries the Union Republican stan
dard of the Keystone State. He well
deceives your votts. He is ono of your
own number. .11e fought and struggled
with you in the same righteous cause,
and under the same beloved banner.
Those acquainted with the General as
a private citizen, say he is a frank, open
hearted man, a cordial friend; and an
irreproachable gentleman.
I have attempted to give but the out
lines of the ttvo pictures. Don't take
my word for it ; hut read and learn for
yourselves, :Sfudy closely the histories
and sentiments of the two candidates,
weigh carefully the principles and Is
sues at L- , take, and then cast your ballot
as your caasc:cace tells you. The right
of suffrzwe i:, a sacred, high and noble
privilege-. Comparatively few. possess
it. *Then election day conies, don't
plead indifference and stay at home, but
come out, every one of you, - and let us
