On next Tuesday, the 2nd day of November,
the Presidential contest will be decided. It be
comes you as citizens of this Republic to exer
cise your right of suffrage, and through the Ballot-Box
to place your scnl of c&iideiination a
gainst the wrong and in favor ofiheT.igut.
For the first time in the history of our country
have we a candidate for the Presidency, (Gen.
Scott,) taking the field in person, and within a
few weeks of the election traversing the Union
urging his military services and thus appealing
to the military enthusiasm of the people for sup
port. Such conduct merits and must receive the
disapprobation of the people. The Whigs have
nominated the Commander of the Army, still
retaining his sword iu hand, and hope to take
possession of the Government. Democrats, up
on you devolves tliG responsibility of defeating
the schemes of that party which is patriotic in
peace and always against the country in war.
The immortal Washington solemnly resigned
his sword to Congress, at Annapolis, and retired
to Mount Vernon, before he allowed a sugges
tion of his name for civil office. Gen. Jackson,
although long out of the army, retired even
from the Senate of the United States to the Her
mitage on his announcement as a candidate for
the Presielcncy. Gen. Harrison, thirty years
out of military duty, never ventured among the
people to plead military services as a qualifica
tion for office. Gen. Taylor did not make a dis
play of himself and his warlike exploits ; and
although he held his commission he held his
peace. Gen. Scott is the first person who ever
aspired to the Presidency who has ever entered
in person this sort of recruiting service. The
design is to make the high places in the Repub
lic, prizes to be won by the blood, not by the
votes of the citizens ; bringing us back to the
elays of Sylla, Marius, and the Triumvirates of
the ancient Roman Republic, and tending to
crush the liberties of the American People. If
Gen. Scott is successful a new element will be
introduced iuto the political struggles of this
happy country. Military Leaders in person with
their forces will take the field on both sides as,
in the contentions at ancient Rome for the Con
sulship, in the degenerate days of the Common
wealth. It is against such a calamity that the
American Democracy are now called upon
to vote so as to avoid. And it should be the
duty and pride of evory democrat to joyfully has
ten to the polls and rebuke this attempt of the
whig party to make the civil power second to
the military. It is upon you, patriotic Demo
crats, to resist the pretorian bands which Gen.
Scott's mission through the States of Pennsyl
vania, Ohio and New York, was intended to ral
ly to the polls. Your votes, on next Tuesday,
will do this effectually, and when the issue is

A large and enthusiastic meeting of lie de
mocracy assembled in Ebensburg, to-day, Thurs
day, Oct. 28. The democrats of the Borough
had made all needful preparation. On Wednes
day night three fine poles, each 93 feet long,
were raised iu the Diamond, between the iouses
of Gen. McDonald anuVtle3 J. Lloyd anl the
Exchange Hotel, and from them the twiarge
and splendid flags made by the ladies of Ebens
burg were suspended across the street ; one
flag being GO by IS feet with the motto of PERCE,
KING and the UNION upon it ; the othr, 27
by 17. feet, having the inscription riPlCE,
KING and 20,000 ! upon it. StreamlS
feet in length, float from the top of the pole8
and add greatly to their beauty. A magniiceut
arch was erected between the Sentinel oiaci and
store of F. Kittell, surmounted by two fine Jags
and having attached to it a broad banner with
WELCOME ! upon it. A large flag, 2-3 bj 13
feet, was suspended across' the street from the
house of M. M. O'Neill and Stephen Lloyi to
that of Wax. Mills, with ihis inscription upm it
PIERCE, KING and tie' UNION ! Eetreen
the house of Joshua Parish, and that of lark
Edwards there was a large lag, 10 by 13 Feet,
floating with the motto of'pjEllCE and KING
upon it ! Two poles, each- about CO fee; iu
length, with banners upoa .them were raisd
one in front of the house of Hon. P. Noon, the
other in front of that of J. C. O'Neill. A num
ber of flags and banners hung from the houses
of the democrats in the Borough. A platform
for the accommodation of the officers and spesk
ers, was erected on the pavement in the Dia
mond. The town presented a beautiful appear
ance from the street, and at the distance of se
ven miles the flags and streamers could be setn
proudly floating to the breeze.
In the afternoon the delegations from Ilolli
daysburg, Summit, Loretto, and Johnstown bor
oughs, and Washington, Surameihill, Jackson,
Carroll, Susquehanna, Allegheny, Clearfield and
I'Tiite townships, came in, accompanied by
bands of music, and bearing aloft beautiful ban

Scott, and the principles of the whig party

those of Frank. Pieuce, and of the party which
nominated him, and we are assured your ver

When Gen. Taylor was a candidate for Presi
dent, the honest and unsuspecting old man
wrote that if elected he would proscribe no man
on account of his political opinions, but that hon
esty and capacity would be the guarantees to
favor. Many democrats, deluded by such false
promic, were induced to vote fcr the old man
"with the brown coat," and he was elected, lie
chose as counsellors a cabinet of whlgs, who de
generated into Ga?pbiu swindlers, and was
the pledge made good ? By no means. The
democracy were made to believe one thing and
taught another. Thus h is it ever been with the
deception practised by the whig party. Be dem
ocrats, therefore, and when the candidate of the
whig party solicits the vote of the foreigner by
alluding to that "rich Irish brogue," or "sweet
German accent," and loves them so well now,
turn to his letter of 1844, when he was "fired
with indignation" against all foreigners, and
you will little wonder why "that brogue" and
"German accent" had no charms for him then.
Then he was not a candidate, now he Is for
your votes. Rebuke, by your ballots, such hy
pocrisy, and show that here in this, the land of
your adoption, you cannot be appealed to as
foreigners, for here every man is an American

P C. Shannon, F'sq., of Pittsburg, the recent
candidate of the Democracy of that district for
Congress, being present by invitation, was call
eel upon to address the meeting, which lie did
in an abl and eloquent manner. His speech
was regarded by all as a masterly production
and brought forth loud und long-continued
plaudits from the crowd. He did not appeal t
the passions of his hearers, but to their intelli"
gence and understandings as freemen in a free
land, and fully demonstrated that the princi
ples professeel Ly the whig party arc against
the interests of the people, and, if carried out,
would reeuit in the dismemberment and dissolu
tion of tbe Union. A more finished, elegant,
convincing and instructive speech wc never lis
tened to, and the distinguished speaker can be
well assured that its effect will be most good
here, while its author will long occupy a place
within cur memories. During the delivery of
his remarks he was warmly applauded, and nt
the close three almost deafening cheers were
given for Shannon,.
S. C. Wingard, Esq., of Ebensburg next ad
dressed the meeting, and in a lengthy, able and
powerful address, elucidateel the principles of
the Democratic party, and exposed the frauds
of the Galphiu whigs and the evil tendency of
their principles. lie was repeatedly cheered
