    march to the polls, shoulder to shoul
der, as we often have in battling for an
issue not more important than that now
at stake.
Pennsylvania has a glorious history !
From the time our forefathers pledged
" their lives, their fortunes, and their
sacred honor," in casting off the yoke
of British tyranny, through that seven
years of gloom, privations and heroic
fortitude, known as the American Rev
olution ;in the second short but bloody
struggle for liberty in 1812 ; in the mem
orable an d victorious Mexican campaign;
and finally during the four years of des
perate fighting, heroic endurance, and
immense bloodshed, so terribly fresh in
your memories, culminating in the sub
ugation of the most gigantic and stub
born rebellion known in history ;—the
sons of Pennsylvania did their duty.—
They fought in every prominent en
gagement from Bunker Hill to Peters
burg. The Key one boys are buried
on every battlefilfd, from the burning
sands of Florida to the green hills of our
own Gettysburg.
As fortunate survivors of the late
struggle, wherein three hundred thou
sand patriots fell, you have now an op
portunity of adding fresh laurels to
those so worthily won, or having them
withered, and crushed, so soon, by the
triumph of your enemies. It is for you
to decide. The eyes of the nation are
upon you. Every loyal citizen ; the be
reaved mourners, whose relatives and
friends fell by your side ; the memories
of your comrades, who sacrificed their
sweet lives to save the Republic ; all,
all appeal to you, to do your duty.—
While we were fighting in the field, our
friends at home nobly confirmed their
loyalty and sympathy for us, in the re
election of the "Soldiers' Friend"—
Andie Curtin. These same patriots will
vote for Geary. It * remains to be seen
whether we—the soldiers—will unite
our strength with theirs in inflicting on
these Copperheads an ignominious de
feat; giving them such a scornful re
buke as to send them whining, so far
into their holes, that the atmosphere
will, for a time, be purified of their poi
sonous breath ; or cast our ballot against
a comrade—against those who stood by,
and sympathized with us,—agaiust the
best interests of our State and nation,
and against ourselvs. It is the daily
boast of the Copperhead politicians and
press, that the soldiers will do this.—
They talk of " Clymer and the boys in
blue," &c. Such allusions should be
spurned by every honorably discharged
defender of his country, as an insult to
his loyalty, to his intelligence, to his
manliness. Place Gen. Geary in the
Gubernatorial chair, (and I firmly be
lieve we will do this,) and every loyal
heart in the land will be gladdened, ev
ery lover of liberty will hail the an
nouncement as another triumph over
tyranny and oppression. Elect the
Democratic (?) candidate, and every
Copperhead in the country, every reb
el, whether pardoned, " reconstructed"
or rampant, will clap his hands with
joy and sing hosannas to Theater Cly
mer, Andrew Johnson and Jefl: Davis.
The Bon, John Hickman Defines His
Several citizens of Chester county,
Pa., having written a note to the Hon.
John Hickman, asking his views on the
great political question of the day, have
received the following reply :
"My answer is given in the following
declarations, every one of which I sin
cerely believe to be true :
I. Mr. Johnson is openly and vindic
tively apostate to the party that placed
him in power; as he assured the coun
try he was an unconditional friend to
freedom, and he desired to have traitors
punished and their crime made odious.
He has falsified all his stereotyped as
sertions, and consequently I look upon
him, as capable of any enormity—the
11. If he can carry out his plans—and
he assures us, in the most vulgar and
disgusting language, he will do so 7 —they
must end in the complete subversion of
free institutions.
111. The President is false—but Mr.
Seward is infinitely below him in point
of political depravity, and is the prime,
moving cause of all our present trou
bles. -
IV. The National Legislature would
disgrace itself and the nation by admit
ting Senators and Representatives from.
the late—l may say present—rebellious
States, without first providing for the
public welfare in the future, and being
thoroughly convinced of the loyalty of
its new members.
V. The Government is placed in ex
treme peril by Mr. Johnson and the
South, through the malign machina
tions of Mr. Seward ; ,and to aid in car
rying out their skilfully arranged policy
would be madness, for it would be irre
trievable ruin.
VI. In what is attempted to be stig
matized by " Conservatives"—that is
blood-dyed criminals and their wicked
apologists—as "Radicalism," lies our
only safety, The contest, this moment,
is between the spirit of despotism and
the spirit of freedom, and is as strongly
marked and as distinct as in April 1861.
I have not been disappointed in Mr.
Johnson, fQr I never placed any confi-.
dente in him. Ever since I knew him
personally, I have regarded him as a
half-crazed, reckless and dissolute man ;
vain, arrogant and ignorant; and de
clined to support him. I had watched
his course closely, and could not but des
pise him. lam sorry that my estimate
of his character has proven correct.
The sun of that day has sett, forever
when I could be cheated by one born
and educated, or rather uneducated, un
der the destructive influence of that
Heaven-defying institution, human sla- .
The only security for American citi
zens and voters, is in combined resist
ance to demagogues and tyrants. I
would now warn them that they have
no time to lose, if they would save them
selves and their pbsterity. Yours, truly.
ald of Monday says : " The anion Con
servatives have done, perhaps, as well
in Maine as could have been, expected
under the circumstances; hut we are
satisfied they would have done much
better had they nominated for Governor
a man identified with the Union war
party of the war, instead of a hide-bound
party politician representing the peace
at-any-price platforim of the Chiccigo
Convention. The Democrats of Penn
sylvania, in nominating for Governor
Aiester Clymer, a peace man during
the war, against General Geary, one of
the most distinguished soldiers of the
war, did for the radicals the very best
thing that could be done. Nobody sup
pos. that there is a ghost of a chance
for Clymer against Geary, and no polit
ical philosopher has yet risen to allow
that while Clymer cannot save himself
he will strengthen the Conservative
Congressional ticket in any part of that
State. In short, he is a dead weight
upon his party),
A farmer, more noted for the care he
bestowed upon his fine stock than upon
his mode of expression, wrote to the
Secretary of an agricultural society in
regard to entering his animals for the
premiums offered, and added, by way of
postcript : " Also enter me for the best
jackass. I'm sure of a premium."

Potter county pledges herelf to 850

about 3,000 more.
Mr. SEWARD is believed to be in a dy

The proposition to increase the sala
ries of Congressmen was moved by
Niblack, of Indiana, a virulent Copper
head, and a majority, of the- " Demo
crats" of the House vOted for it. But
mark this fact: Of the RepubliCans
present and voting, al \ majority voted
against the proposition.
Will some of the noisiest of that party
state this undeniable fact to their stupid
followers? We guess not.
We publish a card from Dr. W. T.
Humphrey in the local colunin, which
effectually squelches the rumor that he
was contemplating the betrayal of the
Republicans of Tioga county, in voting
for a Copper-Johnson U. S. Senator.—
We have not believed this cruel rumor,
but it was widely circulated and inten
ded to do him some harm. We do not
know of a truer man than W. T. Hum
Only three ballots this fall. One la
beled " State," enclosing the name of
Geary for Governor. One labeled "Ju
diciary," with the names of Veil and
Bentley for Associate Judges; and one
labeled " County," with the names of
Wilson for Congress, Humphrey and
Mann for Assembly, and Donaldson,
Deane, Van Ness and Stone, for county
officers. Remember this.
Every Copperhead speaker, and every
paper of that stripe, in this State, is
trumpeting the lie that Congress his
voted $3OO bounty to negro soldiers aid
.but $lOO to white soldiers. We have d
nounced this as a lie, "time and again,'
but a "white soldier" puts the facts so
squarely before the public in the Phila
delphia Press, that we extract the bur
den of his remarks, as follows:
" Previous to the passage of the acts
of June 16th, 1864, (section 2,) and July
4th, 1864, (section 1,) but few, if auy, of
the colored troops were entitled to any
bounty. These acts merely placed the
colored soldier upon the same footing
as other soldiers of the regular or vol
unteer forces of ihe United States of
like arm of the service.' I quote the
exact words of the_law.
" The only discrimination that exists
is in favor of the white soldier, who, by
the act of July 28, 1866, is entitled to an
EXTRA BOUNTY of one hundred dollars,
which the colored soldier does not get.
These Copperjohnson orators and news
papers know, or ought to know, that
these are the facts of the ease. It is true
that the colored man who served two
years can get, and many of them have
been paid, $lOO bounty -; so has the white
man ; but the white man, by the act of
July 28, 1866, is entitled to ANOTHER
$lOO, which the coloi-ed soldier cannot get,
as there were no colored troops in the
service at the time for which this $lOO
extra bounty is to be paid. This bill
was signed by President Johnson ; and
it is rather strange to see the friends of
the President trying to bring discredit
upon Congress for passing a bill which
he himself approved, and which would
not have become a law without his sig
" Why is this extra bounty of $lOO to
the white troops not paid? The bill al
lowing. it has passed both Houses of
Congress, and been approved by the
President. There is money enough
the Treasury to pay it; and if it is not
paid, it is the fault alone of the Presil
dent and his officeholders. They are
withholding the payment of this extra
bounty for no other purpose than to in
fluence the elections. Let the white
soldiers hold them responsible for it."
ISOLDIERS, if one of you can read the
article on our first page addressed to you
and not desire to Meet and embrace the
gallant writer, you are leis susceptible
than we. It is the invitation of a young
man who enlisted in 1861, served as a
private and non-commissioned officer
for the entire war, having re-enlisted in
1864. He is one of nature's noblemen,
a gentleman, modest to a fault, brave,
faithful, and good. The production it
self marks him as a young man of su
perior intellect; iu fact, this young pri
vate soldier has more brains than the
entire Blair family and their admirers.
Let no man fail to read the article enti
tled " To Soldiers."
If there is a Republican in Tioga
county who oyerloots the vital need of
vigilance and action from this hour to
the hour of closing the polls on the 9th
day of October, we pity him.
We say to him, an'd to all, that no
man living, no child living, will ever
witness an election so fraught with des
tiny as that which the freemen of Penn
sylvania will hold on the 9th day of
The issues are plain : We will state
them briefly, anti without surplusage.
They are—
Shall Congress make the laws, or shall
Andrew Johnson make them? Shall
loyal and tried men reconstruct the Un
ion, or shall traitors do it ? Shall the
President obey the people, or shall the
people obey the President?
Demagogues may seek to 'cover up,
these issues by creating new ones. They
will attempt to do this, doubtless: They
will lie, as usual, and they will misrep
resent without scruple, as usual.
The Republicans of Tioga county will
vote them down—as usual.
But our duty as a journalist must be
performed; and we utter the earnest
words of warning against the lies and
misrepresentations of Copperhead ora
tors, editors, and handbills.
One would suppose that that party
would be wary and hesitant about rais
ing the old cry of " nigger" in Tioga
county. But they think the people for
getful of the immediate past. They are
mistaken. Only fools forget.
We see posted and circulated a carica
ture of a negro taking his ease, and
white men at work to support him. The
text of this unartistie lie is a tissue of
lies. The Freedmen's Bureau, against
which it is aimed, was created for des
titute men and wom i en, without distinc
tion of color; and five-sixths of the mo
neys expended under its operation, have
been expended in relieving the necessi
ties of the whites. It has distributed,
and is distributing rations to men and
women who used to own, and flog, and
sell negroes before the war.
And remember this : The white and
black men of this county are now pay
ing taxes to pay the debt` incurred in
suppressing a rebellion concocted and
carried on by the leaders of the so-called
Democratic party. This cannot be de
nied. Every prominent leading rebel,
with Jeff. Davis at their head, was, and
is to-day, a Democrat of the Hiester
Clymer and Theodore Wright school?
The scoundrels ! They get up a con
spiracy to overthrow the Government.
Republidans combine to put them down,
and do put them down, but ata vast ex
pense of blood and treashre. Then the
conspirators taunt us with involving the
country in debt!
As well may the thief and murderer
taunt the Commissioners of Tioga coun
ty with expending public money to try
and convict them and send them to the
penitentiary! Can brass go farther?
These fellows try our patience. But
they must be endured. They were the
allies of traitors in arms, and they are
the allies of traitors disarmed.
Treason is not dead. It does not sleep,
even.. It is rampant wherever you find
Southern rebels and Northern Copper
heads. We must strike down these al
lies of treason on' he 9th day of Octo
These adNiocates of Hiester Clymer
and Theodore Wright were "Peace
Democrats" during the war. They now
appear, and strut the stage, as " War
Democrats." What next?
Why, after the 9th of October, when
Gen. Geary will be elected Governor of
Pennsylvania and the 40th Congress
shall be proved overwhelmingly radical
Republican, we suppose these fellows
will go about swearing that they are
radical Republicans Why not? From
intense pro-slavery men they profess to
hive become abolitionists, and they ac
tually employ a man who professes to
have been an original anti-slavery man
for a quarter of a century, to stump it
in Tioga county !
Last Oar they were opposed to The
abolition of slavery. This year they
endorse the abolition of slavery. Next
year they will claim to be radical Re
publrans, and in 1868 they will be in
for egro suffrage—swearing all the
while that they never change.
Friends—the cry of "-Negro" will not
frighten any man who is not afraid to
go through the graveyard of a dark
night. Fears of negro equality will not
disturb any man who is not already the
inferior of the African in his own pri
vate judgment.
As for the rest—the Republican party
must punish these leaders of the Cop
perhead party through the balloi-l-box.
Depiivation of place and power is the
lightest punishment they can expect.—
Let us strike together, and render trea
son odious and traitors infamous.
The " demnitioh Bow-wows," as the
classic Mantilini used to put it, are a
broad in Tioga county. The Union is
in danger again. The bluffers of the
Copperhead party are out in force; the
800-hoos are on one flank, and the bow
wows on the other.
Good people—if the Union is in dan
ger, it is in danger from the plots of
rebels and their Copperhead allies. The
party which saved the Government
from destruction at the hands of South
ern traitors and Northern sympathizers,
will again, this time with the ballot,
rescue the nation from its great peril.
Republicans may rest entirely easy
about Generals Grant, Sherman, Sheri
dan, and other noted Union Generals.
Not one of these men are believers in
Andrew Johnson's policy. Not one of
them attended the late Johnson-Sol
diem' Convention at Cleveland, and not
one of them will aid Andrew Johnson
to put the Government into the hands
of rebels and Copperheads. Remember
this. The future will demonstrate the
truth of this affirmation.
We notice that there is a " Conserva
tive" party organization hereabout,
which is devoted to the enviable task of
convincing the people that there is no
carnivorous cat in the Copperhead meal
tub. "Will you walk into my parlor?
said the spider to the fly." •
We have read of Conservatives. We
knew some of that sort of folks in 1861.
They lived in Maryland, and acted as
go-betweens between Washington and
Richmond. Just stroke the hair the.
wron way once, and ygn will find a
CoppOtead under every coat, labeled
" Conservative." -
Alas for the Copperjohnsons! After
all their boasting that they had-not on
ly the but the army, in the
person of Gen. Grant, and the navy, in
the person of Admiral Farragut, it turns
out that neither Gen. Grant nor Farra
gut endorse the President's policy.—
Gen. - Grant authorizes the correspond
ent of the Chicago Repubiican to say
that he is no politician. That he does
not endorse the President's policy ; and
that no man who was not loyal in 1881
should have his support. Among these
objectionable traitors he classed Hiester
Clymer, and declared that it was an in
sult to any loyal man to ask him to vote
for 'such a man.
As the President delivered over the
Constitution to every crowd which he
addressed during his late tour, the ques
tion arises as to how he reclaimed it so
as to , make the delivery to the nest
Or did be have a pocket full of consti
tutions to give away? .
The Maine election has convinced
Bennett, of the New York Herald, that
Johnson is wrong and Congress right.
In his Wednesday and Thursday issues
of last week he says that the defeat of
the President in Maine shows conchi
sively that not a Northern State will
endorse„" my policy," that the Fortieth
Congress will be more radical than the
present one, and that Johnson's insane
speeches have, in concert with the mas
sacres in Memphii and New Orleans,
utterly routed the Copper-Johnsons.—
Bennett is right this time.
Montgomery Blair and Henry J. Ray
mond threaten war on the part of the
South unless Johnson's policy shall pie
vail. These fellows must be given to
understand that what they cannot get
by favor they must not hope to conquer
by arms. The South will never wage
war against the North, unless, as before,
Northern traitors egg them on. The
South' will have to strike the first blow,
if there is to be war.
The rebel Gen. Forrest, the hero of
the Fort Pillow slaughter of Union pris
oners of war, sent a telegram of con
gratulation to the Johnson Soldiers'
Convention at Cleveland. The Conven
tion, which consists of Brigadier Gen
erals and Colonels, chiefly, sent a mes
sage of thanks to the gallant and heroic
assassin. Comment is unnecessary.
Among the brood of lies set afloat by
the Copperheads this fall, was one de
claring that Gen. Grant and Admiral
Farragut endorsed President Johnson's
We art , glad to be able to state that
neither of those gentlemen endorse An
drew Johnson's pOlicy of reconstruc
tion. Even the reporter of the N. Y.
Herald says in one of his late letters
that Gen. Grant was reported as saying
that he was disgusted with hearing a
man make speeches on the way to his
own funeral. The man who is not dis
gusted with Mr. Johnson's speeches,
must be a very low sort of a blackguard.
The pleasures of the unreconstructed
are various. In Louisiana they consist
in massacreing unarmed Union men.—
In Memphis, ditto. In Missouri, the reb
els of Platte city attacked a Republican
Convention which assembled on the
15th instant, killing fouraud wounding
many more. The rebels then drove ev
ery Union man out of the city, and
swear that none of them shall live there.
These jolly rebels are all Andrew
Johnson men. They delight in carry
ing out " my_polley" to its legitimate
results. We hope that Gov. Fletcher
will issue letters, of marque to the Un
ion men of Missouri and give these reb
el outlaws over to their tender mercies.
The New Jersey Legislature convened
last week and ratified the Constitution
al amendment published in this• paper
under the head of " Reconstruction"
last week. It also elected a Radical U.
S. Senator in the place of Stockton, un
seated. Good.
The Blair meeting at Mansfield on
Tuesday of last week was rather better
than that in this place the day before.
Fail Brook was represented in force, yet
the universal verdict is, that two-thirds
of the balance of the crowd' were Re
publicans. Mr. Blair will not put down
his tour in Tioga among his pleasant
Dunham, of the Williamsport moral
and literary paper, is on the anxious
seat. In his last number there is not a
word about Wilson, and not more than
990 lies. Add to this . the fact that he
has hauled down Geary's name, in obe
dience to the command of his Copper
head keepers, and he presents himself
before tide public as a political orphan
with a very bad cold in the head. Alas
for D. S. D! Put not your faith in .
The Erie Dispatch says : " An old lady
managed to be introduced to General
Grant at the depot at this place, and
greeted him with tears and affection.—
'lam so glad to see you,' said she, for
I had four boys in the war. Two were
killed, and two badly wounded.
glad to see you, even though you are
now in bad company.' This is a fact."
To which we respond: No discount
on that old lady.
Harper, for October, contains another
chapter of Porte Crayon's Recollections of the
War, finely illustrated. "Mrs. Roth's Bridal
Tour" will at once please and horrify the ladies.
The shorter stories are all good, and there are
several papers of a scientific nature which lend
interest to the number. $4 per year. Young

Heroic, Patriotic, Romantic, Humorous aiati Tray-
This is a certain portion of the war that will
never go into the regular histories, and will not
get embodied in romance or poetry, which is a
very real part of it, and will, if preserved, con
vey to succeeding generations a better idea of the
spirit of the conflict than many dry reports or
careful narratives of events, and this pert may be.
called the gossip, the fun,
the pathos of the war.
These illustrate the character of the leaders,
the humor of the soldiers, the devotion of women,
the bravery of men, the pluck of our beros, the
romance and hardships of the service. From the
beginning of the war the author has been en
gaged in collecting all the auer.dothes .topeeeted
with or illustrative of it, and hat - grouped and
classified them under appropriate hands, and in
a very attractive form.
The volume is profusely illustrated with over
300 engravings by the first artists. which are
really beautiful; woithy of examination as speci
mens of the art. Many of them are set into the
body of the text, after the popular style of Loss
logs Pictorial Field Book of the Revolution. The
book's contents include reminiscences of camp,
picket, spy, scout, bivouac, siege and battlefield
adventures; thrilling feats of bravery, wit, droll
ery, comical and ludicrous, adventures, etc., etc.
Amusement as well as instruction may be
found in every page, as graphic detail, brilliant
wit, and authentic history, are skilfully inter
woven in this work of literary art.
This work sells itself. The people are tired of
dry details and partizan works, and want some
humorous, romantic and startling. We have
agents clearing over $2OO per month. Send for
circulars, and see our terms and proof of the above
assertion. Addsess
