Oommittm Rooms, No. 1105 Chesnnt street,
Pbiladblpria, September 3, 1H06.
Fellow Oltizrns The superficial observer might
suppose, after the fearfnl straggles, sacrifices and
sufferings of the last five years, that we could
safely relax onr efforts and watchfulness, and, re
turning to onr individual affairs, permit the ma
chinery of government to ron Itself. An intelli
gent and patriotic survey of the situation, how
ever, will not warrant any snch conclusion, but
will impress ns more than ever with the truth and
wisdom of the adage, "Eternal vigilance is the
price of liberty." Six years ago the people law
fully elected Abraham Lincoln President of the
United States. The minority, enemies of our gov
ernment and country, refused to submit to
their defeat at the polls, and, for the first time in
oar history, appealed from the ballot-box to the
sword. Tbey detiantly threw off all the obliga
tions of constitutions and laws, rushed madly
into civil war, and fought with malignity and
desperation for four long bloody years In the
wicked attempt to overthrow and utterly de
stroy the government handed down by our fa
thers. This they did under the pretext that a State
hnd a constitutional right to secede from the
Union. The same thing had been attempted by
South Carolina in 1KT3; but, under the vigorous
administration of President Jackson, the effort
signally failed, and the doctrine on which it was
based was repudiated. Hat in 1850, when the De
mocratic party of Cincinnati nominated James
Bnchanan for President, they revived the old State
rights dogma of secession, by readoptlng the Vir
ginia and Kentucky resolutions of 17!H and 17H,
as a part of their plnltorm. And at the Charles
ton Convention, in 1H(U, although the party there
split into two parts, the one nominating Douglas
and the other Breckinridge for President, both
factions readopted these same resolutions. These
resolutions do not hold the relations of the States
to the United States as constituting a government
in the ordinary and proper sense of the term,
but declared to be merely a compact, and that
"as in all other cases of compact among parties
having no common judge, each party has an equal
right to judge for itself, as well of infractions as
of the mode and measure of redress."
Under this free Democratic charter for rebellion,
the election of Abraham Lincoln was claimed by
the rebel States as an "infraction" of the "com
pact," and they chose secession and civil war as
the mode," and the destruction of the Union and
of the government as "the measure of redress."
Hence, when the war broke upon ns in all its
fury, we found the Democratic party paralyzed.
It was suddenly brought face to face with the
practical application of its own political creed, by
Its own political friends. Hence, too, the sad de
moralization and want of loyalty and patriotism
shown by that party during the whole war. Those
of them who preferred their country to their party
and platform abandoned both platform and party,
and under the flag of their country manfully ral
lied to put down the rebellion, while the leaders
and the mass of the party aid otherwise.
They had so repeatedly proclaimed the right of
secession they believed it, and were everywhere
found justifying or excusing the rebellion, de
nouncing every means used to suppress it; pre
dicting the war a failure, and endeavoring to
make good their predictions, and boldly denying
there was any power in the government to "coerce
a State." The Democratic party thus acquired a
reputation for connivance at treason and diBloy
altv to the country which justly consigned it to
continuous and overwhelming defeats, until at
the close ot the war it bad not a Governor or a
Legislature in a single, loyal State, except little
Delaware and the legislature of Kentucky. And
since the Philadelphia Convention It seems to
have fallen upon the expedient of otder noted
criminals, and resolved to sally forth nnder a new
Not until April, 1PG5, were the rebels finally
overcome, and then only by the power of our ar
mies, which they could no longer withstand.
There was no voluntary surrender, but their arms
were stricken from their bloody hands. The great
conspiracy against freedom had failed, and the
armies and people of eleven revolted States were
at the mercvofthe conquerors, professing a wil
lingneBS to accept any terms the victors might im
pose. Congress naa men recenuy aojouruea, uuu,
under the law, would not assemDie until me ioi
lowing December, unless con veied by the Presi
dent in extra session. The occasion seemed to be
one of sufficient novelty and importance to require
a meeting of Congress, but the President judged
dltterently. He proclaimed that these States had
been deprived of "all civil government," and the
Supreme Court of the United States declared the
iDhnia nnmilHtinn thereof to he "alien enemies."
The President proceeded, by proclamations, by
appointment of provisional governors and other
means, to create governments for these rebellious
States, and npon the annual meeting of Congress
made renort of what had been done, and recom-
mTTHari the admission of Reoresentatlves. Con
gress claimed to have jurisdiction over the whole
subject, and proceeded to inquire whether or not
governments had been established, and whether,
under all the circumstances, it would be proper to
restore those rebellious people and States to their
former relations and rights in the Union, without
llrst imposing some terms upon them as security
fr ttiA tntnre 1
The great question is not wnether the States
themselves shall be restored, but whether they
shall have representation in Congress with or
withnnt terms. Our political adversaries Demo
crats, rebels and their sympathizers, north and
nnth-T without terms and conditions, and
tnrtnvith Congress, by the almost unanimous
vote of all the members who sustained the war,
hiu nrnnnsed sundrv amendments to the Constitu.
tlon of the United States, to be submitted to the
State Legislatures for ratification; and it will be
the Legislature we are about to elect
to approve or disapprove these fundamental
changes in the national Constitution. These
amendments are the terms fixed by Congress on
which the States lately in reoeuion ana tneir peo
niA nn resume their practical relations to the na
tional Union. These terras may be briefly stated
as follows: t .........
1. That all persons born or naturalized In the
United States shall be citizens thereof; and that all
citizens shall have equal protection iu me eujuy
man of life, lihertv and property.
o Turn, representation shall be apportioned
among the States according to numbers, but that
classes disfranchised without cause shall not be
counted in fixing the basis of Federal representa-
3. That all who are guilty of treason and perjury
shall be ineligible to olllce, unless the disability be
hu a. two. thirds vote of Congress.
4. That the validity of the national obligations
inenrred in the war shall not be questioned, and
all rebel debts and claims for slaves shall be void.
Tha KtjtteH nf Tennessee. Connecticut and New
Hampshire, by the action of their several legisla.
to-. hva Rireniiv ratified these amendments by
very large majorities. Our friends in Congress and
out of Congress are united in the conviction that
these terms are pre-emiueuuy uinguaiuuiuuB, i
and iuet; that they are the legitimate fruits of the i
war, and essentiul to our peace and security for the
future. By the storms of civil war some of the
landmarks made by our fathers were taken away,
and some of the ancient foundations laid by them
were moved. Let us wisely readjust them, so that
our temple of liberty may stand upon the broader
and firmer foundation ot universal liberty and im
partial justice. . , . .
In March, lt-66, the Union party assembled in
convention to nominate a candidate for Oovernor.
It reaffirmed its patriotic principles as proclaimed
and fought lor during the war, and declared it to
be the right and duty of Congress to prescribe the
terms ot reconstruction. Oa this platform Major
General John W. Geary was nominated for Oo
vernor by a unanimous vole, and subsequently his
nomination was enthusiastically indorsed by a
large and intelligent Convention of the Soldiers
and Sailors of the State. He is no obscure person,
age, but one of the representative men of these
eventful times. Asa civilian he has tilled with
ability and distinction many important public po
sitions, requiring intelligence, discretion and the
highest order of integrity and administrative
ability. He has been a farmer, a teacher, a civil
' engineer, a lawyer and a manufacturer. He has
served the people as postmaster and mayor of a
' citv, as judge of a court, and as Oovernor of a
territory. As a volunteer soldier he is the pride
and an honor to his state.
He went out from home to the Mexican war as a
1 captain, and came back with honors as the colonel
of his regiment. He entered the service In the late
-IJt M nnlonel. and fought it all the wav
through, having been promoted to the exalted rank
inrouKu.uB K, command and
promptness-o Execute." This valiant and faithful
' ?ol erwa. present at and participated in sixty
fnnr times wounded Inaction,
but ne ver once defeated. He made the entire circuit

pe?Uled ku Ule and shed bis blood for the nag and
cans of onr country, and he bears apon his person
the honorable scars from manv a well-fouk'ht
field. Such is the candidate presented for the
so ff rages of the loval and patriotic voters of Penn-
as a competitor the Democratic party has pre
sented the Hon. Hlester Clymer. He, too. Is a re
presentative man; but it Is of his party, rather
than of his country. His platform and his cam
paign thus far may be summarily comprehended
in the phrase, "Up with tne rebel, and down with
the negro." He is a lawyer by profession, and it
Is believed be never held any office except that of
State Senator. His public record, therefore, Is a
short one, and consists entirely ot his votes and
speeches during his senatorial career. But that
term covers tne entire perioa wnen tne country
was torn by a distracting and bloody civil war,
and when the State was lavishly contributing her
blood and treasure for ner own aeience ana lor
that ot the national government. In this tremen
dous struggle where did Hlester Cly.ner standi

and let It answer.
In 1801 he voted against the bill for the arming
of the State, and after the news of the attack on
Fort Sumter had fired the hearts or oar people.
and thousands were rallying to the defence of our
insulted llag, mr, Clymer caused to be entered
upon the journals of the Senate his solemn pro
test against the bill for arming the State.
In ISOii, when reverses had overtaken our armies
and our credit was strained to the utmost to keep
men in the neld, jyir. uiymer voted against the
joint resolution providing for the collection of the
taxes levied by me unitea states.
in 1H3 Mr. uiymer voted against the bill to en
able our soldiers and sailors to vote when absent
In the service.
In ibi'A he dodged the vote on the proposed con
stitutional amendment allowing soldiers In the
field the right to vote, and afier said amendment
bnd passed he voted against the bill to carry it into
He voted against the hill to define and punish
offences of a treasonable character, and against the
bill to legalize the payment of bounties to volun
teers. In February, H-04, In a speech in the Senate, re
ferring to the recent defeat of Vallandigham In
Ohio, and of Woodward In Pennsylvania, Mr
Clymer said: "I say now and believe that it was
the greatest calamity that has yet befallen this
country that those two men were not elected."
such is an outline 01 me inglorious record oi
Iliester Clymer, and by It, as he declared on a re
cent occasion, he is determined to stand. His
whole public career and all his official acts and
public declarations of opinion have been uni
formly consistent. His record may be searched in
vain for a vote or sentiment evincing true loyalty
to the flag or cause of the country, or which was
not at the time In harmony with the prevailing
political sentiment at Richmond and Charleston.
Upon these records and candidates we most con
fidently appeal to tne patriotic voters of tne Key
stone State for a most emphatic verdict in lavor of
Sundry dispatches captured from tne enemy dis
close his mode of organization and plan of cam
paign, rne cnairman oi tneir state central com
mittee, as a sort of head centre, appoints a reliable
subordinate in every election district in the State,
and these, from the debris of the late "Knights of
the uolden circle," and such other materials as
can be had, are required to organize "mystic cir
cles," or Democratic clubs, which are to register
the voters, collect money for the party, distribute
documents, and do various other things to Insure the
full party vote. These are semi-military secret or
ganizations, and the members are admitted by ini
tiation, at which the candidate "places bis rtgbt
hand on his lelt breast," and enters into most solemn
vows to "vote against all men who are willing to
give the negro either political or social equality in
this state, or in any other Mate, District or Terri
tory of this country." Their watchwords are
"Silence," "Obedience," "Vigilance." It is a
pity the great light of these magnanimous patriots
should be longer concealed under a bushel, and
that they can find nothing more important to do in
tbis great crisis of our country's fate. But fore
warned should be forearmed. Guard well against
these insidious appeals to the prejudices of our
people, and attempts to mislead them by such
means. Be not deceived by the stale clamor about
negro equality add negro suffrage. These favorite
bobbies 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 lssuee
of the contest. They are now raised up and brought
upon the track again, mounted by the same riders,
and destined to the same ignoble end. The consti
tution ot Pennsylvania permits only white men to
vote, tiy its terms it can be amended only once in
every five years, and having been amended in 18(11,
allowing the soldiers tie right to vote, it cannot,
in conformity with Its own provisions, be amended
again vntil lbtiO. It Is hoped, therefore, our Demo
cratic friends will restrain themselves, and not
press negro snnrage upon us before authorized by
the constitution oi me state.
