Three years -ago a similar honor was
conferred upon me at a period when
our nation was just emerging from a
most terrible war; and with the dust
of battle scarcely brushed from my own
garments, and politically inexperienced
as I was, 1 ardently entered upon the
contest which resulted so gloriously for
the Republican cause in 1800. 1 did ntt
accept the nomination theu in the be-
lief that in my own person I possessed
any instrinsic merit, or had rendered
any service:4,4'6 my country which, en
t it led me individually to receive it; but
I accept it as a compliment to my com
rades in arms, and as a. matter due to
ihe three hundred and sixty-three
thousand soldiers of Pennsylvania who
had rendered noble services in the field
the aggregate value of which can never
he estimated, and to whom we are in
debted for a home and a country. On
i their behalf I then warmly thanked
the convention, and I hero desire to re
iterate those thanks again tto you. And
now, after having served the greater
portion of the term for which I was
elected, and after every official act of
mine has been fully criticised and dis
cussed by the people and the press ;
when you, the chosen representatives
of the people from every part of the
Commonwealth, \appear at the bar of
public opinion ar testify in, : my be
half, and confer upon me the plaudit,
• • NV HI done, good an faithful servant,"
I certainly need no better, no higher,
no stronger verdict. [Applause.]
In bearing the banneX you have ,this
day confided to me, I pledge - you that
it shall be carried at the\head of the
Republican &Amin), its \movements
sliallaliVelys be directed to the sound of
the heaviest firing; and when„ the eon
, Met Is over, I confidently predict the
banner will be 'placed, as it was in '66,
in triumph upon the dome of tht Cap
itol, without spot or blemish on its
stripes, and each aita ' , every star \ as
bright as when its first effulgence
beamed on the country, and PetinsYl \ -
' yank', will still be as true as when she,
signed " the sacred covenant that binds
the States together in the bonds of an
everlasting union.'' [Cheers.]
Should the people agaiti.place me in
the executive chair, I will continue to
use my best exertions to proniote every
where ttpe peace, honor, and welfare of
my natiA'e State, and to secure all the
blessint; that a good government can
liestoW upon a free people. And it
shall he my pleasure to aid the Chief
Magistrate of the nation in his lauda
ble efforts to " let us have ,peace," and
if necessity should require kt I will aid
him to preserve our national rightsand
national honor at all hazards and every
sacrifice. It shall lie my special duty
to extend all the influence I may pos-
Sess to aid in procuring adequate pro
tection for every branch of-our domes
' tic industry and productiOn*, and to
see that exact justice shall be done to
the mechanic and the laborer, as well
as to the capitulist f and, as far as possi

interests are one and inseparable. [Ap
As a candidate it shall be my con
_ start aim to extend, strengthen, and
confirm the unity and good feeling of
the 'Republican 'Arty, and in this work
I sincerely invoke the aid of every true
Republican. For my owripart, I will
not, recognize divisions /or factions in
the party, litit will from this time forth

The itepowiew, party has a preuti
record in the past, and a glorious fu
ture before it. It has accomplished
more good in a shorter space of time
than any other organization that ever
existed, and we haye retion to rejoice
that it still lives, and moVes, and has a
being. Among its achievements is the
abolishment of slavery. That scandal
to humanity and opprobrium of the
nation lies dead amidst its worshipers.
The rights and priVileges of all men
are secured in their lives, their homes,
their labor, and their persons. All men
are protected because they are men,
without reference to race or color. In
the language of Abraham' Lincoln,it
"cares for , him who has borne the lat
tle,.and for his widow and ids orphan,
and seeks to achieve and cherish a
lasting peace among ourselves and with
all n'ntions." Each individual is arii
mated with love for the Union and for
universal liberty. NeVer was a Re- '
publican found guilty of firing into the
flag of his country and shooting down
its brave defenders. The party has
sacredly decreed the payment of the
entire debt incurred to save the life of
the nation. In a word it has defeated
the nation's enemies, saved the Union,
and caused it to be more highly re
spected and admired throughout the
civilized world than ever before. [Ap- .
Friends of the four hundred thous
and heroes who died for the country,
.with such a glorious record how can
you surrender your Government into
the handset those who would have de
stroyed it within the last six year if
they could? The Union is the ark of
our safety. The republican party has
proven itself the true friend of the
Union. Sustain the Republican party
by victory, and you will thereby sus
tain the Union. And suffer not unre
pentant rebels and their sympathizers
to touch the hallowed sanctuaries of
either State or National Governments.
Then let us here "highly resolve" to
preserve forever the former in•" Virtue,
Liberty, and Independence ;" and to
protect, defend, and perpetual() the lat
ter, let us here pledge anew " Our lives,
our' fortunes, and our sacred honor."

The National Intelligencer, Washing

We find some people credulous enough
to believe that certain Pennsylvania
politicians are endeavoring to bring on
a war with England. Messrs. Forney
and Curtin are credited with a conspir
acy to let loose the dogS of war. - We
read the Press daily and tknd no war
rant for such a belief. We have read
Gov: Curtin's late farewell speeches
and find nothing therein to warrant
such a eonciusion. That there is any
formidable combination to force a s war
between this and any - other nation, we
do not believe. But if there be, the
people will take care that the movers
have all the blood and glory to them
selves. War with Britain does not
seem imminent. It is not probable,
even. Neither country can afford it,
nor can the press of either or both
countries involve the governments in
a passage at arms. Let us have peace,
and so give the productive interests a

Yet—John's arrival creates disturb-
About 1200 arrived in San Fran
sisco a week ago. The telegraph sent
on the news, and in an liour some peo
ple who have more zeal than faith, and
more impulse than philosophy, cried—
" what shall we do with these godless
Let theta alone. Who is John China
man, and who are you who assume to
sit in judgment? Is he not industrious?
Is. not an industrious, . frugal, sober
heathen better than a lazy, improvi
dent, drunken Christian ? Do you have
to voyage' to China to find idolaters?
No. Every other man and woman you
meet thinks oftener of•something ma
terial, And values it more highly than
things spiritual and eternal. Those
Pucky-like, hideous images we some
times see in museums, are no more
idols than the white skins, the taper
fingers, the " wealth of tresses," and
the last new pants, dress, boots, etc.,_
which we Christians bow down to. The
Caucasian has come to value the color
of ills skin higher than the grade of his
character. There's idolatry for you!
What shall we do with John China-
I an? Let him alone, we repeat. When
ritons and Americans went to China
• make rnont+y-, the Serene Emperor
Flowery Kingdom atonce called
his panecs together and asked—" What
shall we do with the outside barbar
ians?" How indignant the great Brit,-
and the " greater " American peo
ple, were at such treatment! Why,
weren't we Christian white men? and
were we to stand any such " demnition
nonsense from a .yellow-faced, pig
tailed runt of a heathen ruler? Yes;
and by no no means. " Buy our opium,
eat it, and become Christian brutes !"
said Britain. " Buy our notions and
nonsense; and thank God for the uni
versal Yankee nation !" said America.
I'll never consent to derive a revenue
from the vices and misfortunes of my
people !" replied the Emperorof China.
Well. What a pity such an answer
could not have proceeded from the lips
of a Christian ruler. How noble it
would have been, how proudly quoted
in thejournals, how profoundly respect
ed. But the Yellow Emperor was—
well—yellow of skin, and ;named his
God Buddha, venerated Confucius, and
set up for the biggest, wil3est, best, and
all that sort of thing.
So, regarding the refusal to speculate
upon the misfortunes and appetites of
his people as a covert thrust at those
Christian nations which for so much
cash, license men to demoralize society
with whisky, Britain 'sent a few war
ships over and taught Fung Wang (?)
the alphabet of civilization. Later, the
United States battered down a few
heathen foits, with the laudable object
of en rich ing a few American merchants.
It is easy enough to dispose of John
Chinaman. Consider him a man. That
covers the ground. He is a\ man, with
like instincts, and different training.
We don't think much of his Jose, but
have no fear of him. We don't vener
erat Confucius, though he stands neck
and neck with the wise men of all ages.
John Chinaman's religion does not
trouble us at all. Christianity will; do
him good within half a century, and if
God had intended him to enjoy its
blessings before, John would have en
joyed them. At all eventp, no man
need • advertise his Christitinity with
us, and then say that there shall be one
law for John in the Courts, and another
for Jonathan. We give notice that
John has ,one friend ; and if he will
work, and be a good citizen, he may
build as many temples as he pleases,
,and mumble-jumble before ugly bits of
wood to his• heart's content. He can't
beat St. Albans if he tries. Let John
work for Jonathan. Pay him good hire.
Live out your Christianity and so con
vert John by sheer force of example.
Never mind dogmas ; never mind spe
cific creeds. Show John that the God
of Christendom is the Father of all
gods and let the showing be'by example.
Confucius was just as wise as his time,
and:wiser than most•modern statesmen ;
yet pe was yellow. Bah ! .
Come along, John Chinaman. The
new world wants you. Its natives are
getting aboire work, and there are sights
of work to be done. We would prefer
you without much Joss, but come along,
-Joss, and all. If you want to-build a
temple in the City of New York, do it.
If you want to build a temple in TiOga
County, come along.
.It will do for a
Church in twenty-five years, and you
will have abolished vJoss by that time
There are a hundred or two lazy fellows
in this region for - whom fifty Chinamen
would be amp]e in exchange. •
If we would Settle the China question
rationally, we'ilhave but to let John
borne along and work. This country
has aavertised extensively as the asylum
of all nationalities. If we meant it, let
us shut up, and welcome all national-
ties. If we did not mean it—if it was
all bunkum—let us hide aw4y in our
shame. John cannot be worse' than the
race of demagogues. After f

That is very pret i ty and a very silly
fiction, now current in the Democratic
papers, to 'file effect that the wind, on
the night of DecoratiOn Day, whisked
the flowers and evergreens from the
graves of Union Soldiers in the Arling
ton Cemetery, and laid them tenderly
upon the neglected graves of the Con
federate dead. That the flowers were
robbed from • the graves of the Union
dead we can believe ; and it is not very
difficult to believe that windy Demo
crats did it. We are not among those
who ?bear hatred Or, or would punish,

bravely and died like men. It is for
