Tbe Lesson r 1S61.
The business interests of the country
are looking with great distrust at the
new combination of Greeley and the
men who inaugurated the Rebellion
which drore our commerce from the
d huddled out ships in ports,
both at home and abroad, to rot wi'h in
action. The business interests will not
cast away a certainty for an uncertainty,
and they are manifesting an unmistak
able determination to sustain the men
who sustained the Government in its
sorest trials. Business journels are
coming out in favor of Ilartranft and
Grant with a ringing sound that cannot
be misinterpreted. Such articles as the
following, from the Nrrth American, tell
plainly how uneasy the "business iuterests
of a great city become under the mere
shadow of a posibility of the Govern
menu of the States and Nation falling
into tbe control of luch men as liucka
lew and Gieeley and their friends:
Suppo-e Charles R. Buckalcwr had
been Governor of Pennsylvania, when
Abraham Lincoln called for seventy-five
thousand volunteers to quell the slave
holders' insurrection, does any man
doubt that he would have ciused this
good old Commonwealth to make a very
different history for herself than that she
caused to be recorded under the admin
istration of Andrew G. Curtin ? That
appeal, remember, was made to the
States as States. It so Lappenel that
nearly every free State was officered by
Republicans. We all remember how
nobly the free States responded. It
was, and continues yet to be, cause of
pride and gratulation that the action of
the Governor of Pennsylvania was so
prompt and sagacious that the reaction
of Bull Run was stayed thereby. Does
any man believe that the famous Penn
sylvania Resrve Corps would have had
an existence had Charles 11. Iiuikalew
been the governor to whom the Pros
dent's appeal was made.
Wo have only to regard the responses
to that appeal made by Democratic gov
ernors in the border and southwestern
States, and we are sufficiently answered.
"The militia of Virginia will not be fur
nished to the powers at Washington,'
replied Governor Letcher "I can be no
party to this wicked violation of tbe laws
of the country," replied Governor Ellis,
of North Carolina Tennessee will not
furnish a single man for coercion, but
fifty thousaud, if necessary, for the de
fence of our rights and .those of our
brethren," replied Governor Isham G
Harris. "I say emphatically that Ken
tucky will furnish no - troops for the
wicked purpose of subduing her sister
southern States," replied Governor Ma
goffin. "The President's call is illegal
unconstitutional, revolutionary, inhuman
diabolical, and cannot be complied with,-'
replied Governor Jackson, of .Missouri.
"The laws of the Stale do not coufer
upon the Executive any authority al
lowing him to comply with such a requi
sition," replied Governor lluiton, of
Delaware. ,-I will suffer my right arm
to be torn from my body before I will
raise it to strike a sister State," said the
Governor of Maryland. Is it nrcosgary
to go further in ihcse quotations, to
show the action of nearly every State un
der Democratic control in that hour of
great peril I
To know what Mr. Buckalew would
have done had he been G overnor of
Pennsylvania in that emergency, we have
only to note what be did do as a cilizen
and as a Senator. Neither as citizen
nor as Senator did he attempt to
strengtheu the hands of the State or
Federal government during the four
years of war for national life. He was
the apologist for the southern wing of the
Democratic party iu arms against the
Union, and the willing defender of men
who strove to embarrass the government
by discouraging enlistments and resist
ing the drafts. Had he been iu a posi
tion to split hairs touching the right of
armed ' regiments from other States to
pass through Pennsylvania lo the de
fence of the capital, who can say that be
would not have eubmited six columns of
protest to the invasion of Pennsylvania ?
He was in perfect poliiical accord with
such Democrats as Mayor Brown and
Marshal Kane, of Baltimore. So late as
ISOl he was in secret communication
with rebel emissaries, though at the time
a Senator of the United States.
No min who was against us, or who.
occupied a doubtful position during the
rebellion, can be trusted to Stale affairs.
Nor is this harsh judgment. The tories
were never adniitied to positions of trust
and honor after the Revolution Morally
and practicliy Mr. Buckalew's at'.itude
toward the government from 1351 to
1S65 did not differ essentially from that
of the tories toward the confederation. If
it be said that no emergency like that of
IS61 will again arise in national affairs,
we reply that no man can forereach time
and decide that. No such emergency
was believed likely to arise when in
1S60 Andrew Curtin was elected Gov
crnor. And so the people of this com
monwealth wrought wiser than they
knew, and prepared the Slate for a glori
ous page in history. As citizens, having
the honor of Pennsylvania iu keeping,
we are called upon to act up to the high
est wisdom of to day, and the highest
wisdom of this day is the average ex
perience of the last twenty years brought
to bear upon present political action.
AVe all know that General Ilartranft
never betrayed a trust reposed in hiai
We know that he would rise to the level
of any emergency that has arisen or may
arise. Never for a moment was his
position doubtful during tbe war. As
an executive officer he ranked high
mnrg generals. As cool, determined,
brave man bis record is without spot or
dimness. Twice the people of the State
elected him to the second highest place
in their gift, and he has proved entirely
worthy of their confidence. lie is no
new man, no stranger, offered for the
suffrage of Republicans. To bestow up.
on turn tlie Ilign irusi ior wiucu ue is
named is not lo essay an experiment
The experiment of trusting General
Ilartranft has been tiied. and he has not
been found wanting. To labor for his
preferment is an agreeable duty, and to
congiatulat6 him in the hour of victory
will be the pride of true patriots.
Democratic Conuty Convention.
Mr. Greeley's new friends held their

Says that sterling old paper, the Ger
mantowu Ttl'grtijth : "The detainers
of General Ilartranft have the worst job
on llieir bands in the history of unscru
pulous politicians. Thev have not an !
inch of ground to stand uuou. Kvcry
charge they make is a combination of
wantonness, falsehood and folly. The
attempt to connect him with speculations
with the public funds, or depositing the
money in banks where certain Iriends
could borrow it out aud use it, is so pitia
ble as to be won by the contempt not only
of every voter in the Commonwealth, but
of every woman and child capable of
reading. As the question rests as it does
upon uulleinirhed character, faithful pub
lic service, in military as well as civic
office, and a resolute determination to
to promote the common weal, we will
compare Gen. Ilartranft will, m y tUT
oOlcial in the State, with uo apprehension
that ho will not custaiu the character and
status we accord to hi:n. Wo therefore
beg of his slanderers to stop and turn
away from tiiis loathsome business so
belittling and humiliating lo all claiming
respectability in a community."

from the Governor of Xonh Carolina :

1S72 lv Foiihan, Esq. Sir: Your tel
earam asking for a copy of the certificate
of the Secretary of Mate as to the result
of the election for governor was received
at eleven o'clock last night. In reply 1
have to say that our election law provides
that the returns shall be made sealed up,
to the Speaker of the House of Repre
sentatives, to be op-ned by him in the
preseuce of ihe two houses of the Gener
al Assembly, on the first Tuesday afier
ihe organization of said houses. Our
Legislature does not convene nntil the
third Monday in November, hence it is
impossible to get a certificate from the
Secretary of State until ihe result is de
clared by the Speaker of the House, as
the returns cannot be opened by any one
except him. am) he must do it on a cer
tain day in the presence of the two
houses. There are some fifteen counties
yet to be heard from Except, partial re
turns the most heard from are semi offi
cial, and it is pretty satisfactorily ascer
tnined that Caldwell's majority will range
from 1.800 to 2.500. Very respectfully.
