    ®(je democrat,
Wednesday. Apr. 18,1866.
801. miSTEH CLYHEfi.
Tb Democracy of Pennsylvania in Convention
met, recognizing a crisis in the affairs of the Re
public, and esteeming the immediate restoration of
the Union paramount to all other issaes, do re
•olve :
1. That the States, whereof the people were \att
ly in rebellion, are ontegral parts of the Union, and
are entitled to representation in Congress by men
duly elected who bear true faith to the Constitution
and Laws, and in oder to vindicate the maxim that
taxation without representation is tyranny, sueh
representatives should be forthwith admitted.
2. That the faith of the ReDublic is pledged to
the payment of the National debt, ami Congress
should pass all laws necessary tor that purpose.
3. That we o e obedience to the Constitution of
the United States (including the amendment prohib
iting slavery,) and under its provisions will aceord
to those emancipated all their rights of person and
4 That each State has the exclusive right to
regulate the qualifications of its own electors.
5. That the white race alone is entitled to the con
trol of the Government of the Republic, and we are
unwilling to grant to negroes the right te]vote.
g. That the bold enunciation of the principles of
the Constitution and the policy of restoration con
tained in the recent annual message and freedinen's
bureau veto message of President Johnson entitle
him to the con§denee and support of all who respect
the Constitution and love their country.
7" That the nation owes to the brave men of vur
aruiies and navy a debt of lasting gratitudo for
their heroic service, in defence of the.Constit u tion
and the Union ; an 1 that while we cherish with
tender affection the memories of the fallen, we
pledge to their widows and orphans the nation's
care and protection.
_B. That wo urge upon Congress the duty of equal
ising the bounties of our stldiers end sailors.
jfjrTlie absence of the editor, in attend
ing to other duties, lias enabled us-the
Printer's devil —to fill the Democrat,, this
week, with some very interesting reading
matter, among which will be found the
President's Veto oTthe nigger-lights bill;
and also the bill itself, Everybody—and
his wife—should read them. We expect
to be " blowed up" when the editor gets
bafk, as we have noticed that editors, in
these parts, of late, have refused or neglect
ed to publish the speeches and messages of
the President. p. d.
6* It is said there are 25,000 idle,
worthless negroes in Virginia, congregated
on the Peninsula between Fortress Monroe
and Yoiktown, to whom are issued 60,000
rations per month. This is a big bill for
Uncle Sam to .pay for his adopted children
of 4 'African scent," A government ration
is now valued at 40 cents a dav or sl2 00
a mouth Sixty thousand rations would
amount to the handsome sura of 1720,000.

MARCHING On —The New York Tri
bune says ' John Brown's soul is marching
on !" To which Brick Pomerov replits :
"We think so. A number of people
think so. John Brown in the body cor
porate matching on through Kansas steal
ing horses and other property. lie march
ed to Virginia to steal nigs, and break
laws till at last he marched to eternity bv
a different line. And now we judge his
soul is marching on ! It marched through
the army-stealing all it could reach. It
marched through custom houses, post-of
fices, collectors' bureaus, legislatures and
congress, stealing by the gross. It march
ed away from the White House lately
with ninety large boxes in charge, and
left the President's mansion gutted. It
has marched with its mortal counterpart
Ben. Butler from New Orleans to Lowel,
and through all the Departm nts at Wash
ington. Yes, the soul of John Brown is
marching on, and we think it time the Devil
wrapped a chain about this essence of Re
publicanism, and anchoied the soul ot the
horse-stealing Ottawotamie."
A Bank Panic,
Considerable excitement has been creat
ed in business circles during the past few
weeks by a report that the notes of a num
ber of Banks had been thrown out by the
Banks of Philadelphia The following
were placed ou the rejected list, and were
for a short time discredited :
frawford County Bank, Meadville.
Oil City Bank, Oil City, Pa.
Venango Bank, Franklin, Pa.
Petroleum Bank, Titusville, Pa.
Tioga County Bank, Tioga, Pa.
Lawrence Co. Bank Newcastle, Pa.
Clearfield County Bank,Clearfield, Pa.
Kittanning Bank, Kittanning, Pa.
Octorara Bank, Oxford, Pa.
Diamond State Bank, Seaford, Del.
First National Bank, Titusville. Pa
The suspension of the Banking House of
Culver, Penn & Co., at New York, is giv
en as the cause of the discredit of the :
Banks in the Oil Region.
The Panic, has however, in a great
measure subsided. The notes of the fol- ;
lowing discredited Banks are again cur
rent :
Kittanning Bank,
Octorara Bank, Oxford Chester co.
Clearfield County Bank, Clearfield.
First National Bank, Titusville.
Tioga County Bank, Tioga Pa.
Bank of Lawrence county Newcastle.
The notes of the Venango Bank. Frank
lin ; and Petroleum Bank, Titusville, are
believed to be good. Thompson's New '
York Bank Note Reporter quotes them at
10 per cent discount.
The only Pennsylvania Banks that have ;
really failed, and tbe notes of which, hav
ing no substantial security, may be consid
ered worthless, ara :
Oil City Bank, Oil City Pa.
Bank of Crawford County, Meadville.
Clymer for the Soldier*
The disunion press is full of lies in re
gard to the action of Democratic Senators
: in IS4, before the Senate was organized.
I After its organization, viz.,
. ' March 1865, Senator Hopkins offered the
following resolution (see Record, page
: 536:)
- Resolved , That the Committee on Fed
eral Relations be instructed to bring in a
' joint resolution instructing our Senators
, 1 and requesting our Representatives in Con
. ! gress to vote for a law requiring the pay
ments of non commissioned officers and
privates in the service of the United States
in coin or its equivalent.
Upon this resolution Senator Clymer,
now the Democratic candidate for Govern
or, spoke as follows (see Record, page
! 536 :)
I did not know, sir, that till Senator
from Washington (Mr. Hopkins,) was
. about to offer a resolution of this kind ; had
J ; I been aware of this fact I might have
J been .able to form a more correct judgment
11 as to his intentions in so doing.
3 J I prgpime he designed to perform an
' : act of simple justice to those who, on the
f tented field, are struggling for the raainten
' ance of this government, lie himself intends
| to place this meritorious class of our fellow
citizens, so far as relates to their pay, upon
1 ! a footing with those sleek, well-paid, weli
j fed, truly loyal and most discreet gentle
j men who, in this time of trial, arc idling
sunny hours in the courts of Europe as our
foreign ministers, while the soldier is en
s during the pains, the trials and the dan
-1 gcrs of a campaign. Contemplate the
picture ; the one class clothed in purple
■ and paid in gold ; the other clad in home
spun and paid in greenbacks ! the one sur
i rounded by all the luxury which gold can
' buy ; tbe other in their individual persons
' and in their families, enduring all the want
[. and misery which paper money ever entails!
An unprejudiced observer, sir, would not,
5 it seems to me, be likely to attribute any
■ sinister or improper motive to one who at
e tempts to equalize in some degree the con
s dition of these two classes. Surely, sir.
the disparity between one hundred and
' sixty dollars a year—the wages of the sol—
e dier —paid in greenbacks —and the salaries
; of our foreign ministers, ranging from ev-
J en to twenty thousand a year, paid in gold,
t is of such magnitude that it should not be
" dislova!" to attempt to equalize it.
To m<\ sir, it is strange passing strange,
j- that those who profess so much love for
the sol ier, who are eternally parading
themselves as the "soldiers' friends," who
would make the soldier believe that e/ery
1 one out-ide the pale of their political eom
e munion is his enemy, whose whole stock
) in trade is to yell that (hey are "loyal,"
r atffl to boast that they love the soldier bet
i ter than wife or child, should here to-day
i resist a proposition so tVr and just. By
) your deeds you shall be tried. Honeyed
1 words of flattery cost nothing. To sustain
this resolution and the enactment of its
f 1 purpose into a law, might impose some
| slight additional taxation upon your "loyal''
; gentleman, and that would cost something
-' You cannot afford that. Oh no ! Fulsome
; ! nraise, laudation without stint—that you
! can givd, it is in your line ; but when the
i soldier asks ibr the means wherewith to
! supply bis wife and little ones with the
' bare necessaries ot life-—which, owing to
• ! tbe vicious system of RtAnceS inaugurated
■: by Republican rulers, hrve beeil raised to
' fabulous prices—you turn your back upon
1 him and brand at " disloyal" every mad
1 who dares to advocate his claims. That
-iis a species of disloyalty of which I, for
: one, una neither ashamed nor afraid. If it
I be "disloyal" to stand by, guard, protect
' and defend the poor and humble . against
r the rieh and powerful; to be in favor of the
I soldier rather than ot the shoddy contract
• o r, then lam disloyal. It is ft kind of
- disloyalty of which you, gentlemen on the
>; Republican side, will never be accused by
■ ; those who know you. Where the spoils
1 are, there will your hearts be also.
. Possibly, sir, the Senator from Wash
ington offered the resolution with an addi
tional motive—that was, to relieve himself,
and those who act with him politically,
from the base and unfounded charge that
we were opposed to an increase of the pay
of the soldier. When this Senate was un
organized, as we then believed, and as you
, subsequently admitted by proceeding to
I elect a speaker, a resolution was offered on
the opposite side of this chamber, instruct
ing our Senators and requesting our Rep
resentatives in Congress, to vote for a bill
increasing the pay of the soldiers. We
j then voted against it, as nndeJ similar cir
i cumstances we would to-day. We told
I you then that by no vote of ours would
, we ever recognize your high-handed act
of usurpation. We told you we would
vote against any and every resolution, even
i should you offer one asserting the divinity
jof God himself. We stood np for a prin
. ciple, and we triumphed. You offered
i the resolution, as you offereJ others, for
the purpose of making clap-trap capital
against us amongst the soldiers and others.
IV>u pa. aded our vote throughout the States
as a high Ciime and a sin, when you ktaew
in your hearts that every representation
you made, as to out" position, was simply
' false. But the resolution ot the Senator
from Washington has unearthed you. It
has stirred up a fearful commotion amongst
tbe ranks of the faithful. You j/nash your
teeth in impotent rage, aud areswo'ien tip
with undischarged bile. You rave and
I fume and sweat —all to no purpose, gen
tlemen. We intend to expose your duplic
ity, and we hav done it. Hence those
tears. I advise you to cover your inten
tions in aomc more skillful way, or I shall
again draw aside the flimsy vail which
shields you from open contcmot.
But, air, what will be the effect of the
r esolution should Congress enact a law in
accordance with its spirit ? Will it not
be precisely what you, gentlemen, forced
us to vote against, when you attempted
usurpation ? The soldier will be paid in
i coin or its equivalent; that is to say, his
wages will be increased by the difference
between gold and greenbacks. If gold at
the end of any month is sixty per cent,
above greenbacks, the common soldier will
; receive twenty dollars and eighty cents,
; instead of thirteen dollars, for his month's
services. If you were honest in your
preposition to increase his pay, how can
you object ? When he entered the ser
vice, his pay was thirteen dollars per
month in gold, for then gold was not above
par. The resolution simply proposes to
keep our blighted faith with the most mer
itorious of all public servants ; with him
who defends our homes and firesides.—
Tell ine, gentlemen, were you honest or
dishonest in your proposition ? You shall
not evade an answer by calling me disloy
al. The word has no terrors for me.—
Three years ago you paid the foreign min
ister and the private soldier in gold. —
Why, to-day, do you continue to pay him
w! o is basking and revelling in the smiles
of loyalty,gaud refuse it to him who, amid
tuj roar of cannon and a storm of bullets,
is battling in your defense ? Answer me
if you dare. We will not be deterred
from making the inquiry by threats or de
nunciations. We on this side of the
Chamber claim for ourselves as muchjin
and devotion to the government founded
upon the Constitution as you claim to pos
sess. We do not impugn your motives ;
you shall not ours. We are not to be
cajoled or intimidated here or elsewhere*
We are your peers and equals here and ev.
cry place. We know our rights and will
maintain them. We will stand by the
Constitution and Union of these States,
and we tell you, aye, we charge it upon
you, that you arc the only men who would
destroy both.
Charges are constantly made against us
of a want <>f fidelity to the government,
of sympathy with treason, and of aiding
the rebellion. Wc defy you to make
them good. This matter had better be
understood and settled litre and now. It
is true that we are not the slaves of any
administration. You shall not set the
blacks free and enslave white men. We
know no government which is not based
upon the Constitution, and we will neither
obey nor be • i lnys\V to any other. Is my
language sufficiently precise? is it clear !
Ido not wish to be misunderstood. I am
not "loyaV to any administration ; I am
ever so to true government, founded upon
and acting in accordance with the Consti
tution, of which it is the mere creature and
exjoncnt. More than this you nor any
living man can demand of any one. To
do so is to make yourselves masters and
those of whom you make the demand
slaves. We wish you to fully understand
that you shall never exercise any such
power over us. The history of the past
should teach yon that the race to which
we belong may possibly be exterminated,
but never enslaved.
Senator Clyiner and every other Demo
crat voted for this resolution, and the dis
union Senators voted to kill it J>y amend
ing it, and having a majority, effected its
amendment, and thus defeated the origin
al proposition.
The Doomed Freed man.
We published, some time ago, au ex
tract from a speech of Senator Dolittlc, in
which the dreadful mortality among the
unfortunate blacks of the South was shown
from statistics of unquestionable authentic
ity. The Louisville Journal discusses the
same subject in an earnest and eloquent
leader trom which we made the following
extract !
T;yenty-niie negro paupers were buried
in this city last month, and one white pau
per. The recoi'd s black in more senses
than one. It marks the gleam of philan
thropy, so-called. It u Justrious with
misery. .It is the echo of the treedman's
What is true of Louisville in this re
spect is true of every Southern city and
village and county. The mortality among
the negroes has been fearful, unprecedent
I ed. They have perished by the score, the
hundred, the thousand. They have
dropped down by the wayside, in the
crowded city, and in the woods. They
have died of a species of cholera, or small
pox, of vice, of filth, and starvation. We
have seen them coming from the planta
tions with their bundles upon their backs
and their children in theirarms, and crowd
ing into improvised tents in the neighbor
hood of negro camps, with nothing to pro
tect tliera from the elements but, rags, and
nothing to rat except what they might be
able to beg or steal, with never a thought
for the future, and expecting, as a matter
of course, that the power that freed them
would take care of them.
It has been computed by many that one
million of these victims of secession and
philanthropy have v%ished from the
earth since the war began ! We call that
costly, and, in a humanitarian point of
view, horrible. It is not possible for us to
regatd it as a philanthropic work. It
seems to us more like the culmination of
devil worship. If the philanthropists, so
called, consider it worthy of rejoicing
over w let them exult. Let the winds waft
their peans over the desolate fields of the
South, and mingle them with the piteous
moans to which a thousaud old shanties,
lanes, and rag houses have listened from a
million of the sable sons and daughters of
Africa. Let them raise a dark monument
and inscribe on one side "Philanthropy"
and or. the other "Secession and let an
index point to a million of lowly African
graves, upon the rough head-boards of
which shall be painted, "Humanity and
jgr If Mr. Lincoln was the Govern
ment, and it was therefore treason to op
pose him, as claimed by Republicans, for
some years, is not President Johnson the
Government, by rightful succession, and is
it not treason to oppose him ? Will the
radicals who are now fighting the Presi
dent so fiercely, please explain ? 1

borne ir. mind that this gross infringement
on the rights of the States, was passed
over the Veto in the Rump Senate by a
vote of three less than half a full and
lawful Senate of 72 members ; and fif

Two-thirds, (48) are required to pass a
bill over a veto. The following was the

The people can judge whether a bill
thus passed over the President's Veto,
should have any binding force
tion journals are howling furiously at Pres
ident Johnson for a few removals from of
fice of persons who have spoken abusively
of him or his policy. What would they
say if he should do as Mr. Lincoln did,
send them to some hostile? It is a fact,
however, well to be noted, that these papers
make more fuss over a person thus turned
out of office, moxe complaint of its tyran
ny, &c., than the Democratic papers did
when Lincoln w6 sending hundreds to
prisop because they used what his Majesty
was pleased to term* " dislopal language."
EXIT SAMBO.—The Tribune gives a
melancholy groan as it writes: "Orders
have been issued, and are ready to go out'
that will deprive, by the Ist of May, every
colored soldier of the right to wear the
United Ststes uniform, not one being left
in service." And, alas! has it come to
this ? Must Sambo doff the blue and re
turn to the dull duties of the shovel and the
hoe? or are these discharged darkies to be
regarded as peculiarly "the nation's wa*ds?
It is a cruel, a wicked shame to turn adrift
these "gallant sold! rs," who " bore off the
palm," and without whose aid we could not
have saved " the life of the nation." Just
think, for a moment, of having a "dead na
tion" on our hand, and all for the lack of a
few nigger soldiers.
Now when for twelve months not
an arm on all GoJ's earth has been raised
in hosfility to our flag, when the outside
limits of onr authority have been stretched
to make the conditions more severe our
brethren of the South have yielded it all,
what excuse is there for those who once
boasted of their independence to continue
to follow the lead of the disunionists of New
England. When the object for which all
the sacrifices of the last fire years were
ostensibly made is in onr easy reach, is it
possible that the "Republicans" ,of Penn
sylvania will allow themselves to be made
the instrument" in the hands of those who
are the original disunionist ?

To Mr. Scovel the Republican presiding
officer of the Senate, who acted with the
Democrats, is mainly due this signal defeat
of Disunionists. After the adjournment,
Mr. Scovel was waited upon by a great
many distinguished Democrats and Repub
licans, who congratulated him upon his
patriotism. j
