COUDERSPORT, POTTER COUNTY, PA., WEDNESDAY JUNE 29, 1864. Speech of ANDREW JOIINSO.V. A great Union meeting wa9 held at Nashville, Tennessee, at which Gov. An drew Johnson was the principal speaker. We find the following report in the Nash ville Times: "After thanking the assembly for the oompliment the; had bestowed upou liirn, and a few other preliminary remarks. Gov. Johnson proceeded to sa; that we are en gaged in a great struggle for free govern ment in tbe proper acceptation of tbe term "So far as tbe bead of tbe ticket is con cerned,tbe Baltimore Convention bas said, not only te the United States, but to ail tbe nations of tbe earth, that we are de termined to maintain and /rarry out the principles of free government. (Applause.) That Convention announced and confirm ed a principle not to be disregarded. It wns, that the right of secession and the power of a State to place itself out of the Union, are not recognised. The Conven tion bad declared this pnuciple by its action. Tennessee had been in rebellion against the Government, aud waged a treasonable war against its authority just as the other Southern States have done She had seceded just as the other States had, and leit the Union a? tar a she had the power to do so Nevertheless, the National Uouveutiuu had declared that a Slate cannot put itself lruui under the National authority. It said by its firs! nomination, that the preseut l'resiuent, take itiin altogether, was now the man to • re-.r the ehip of State .for the next four ynars. applause.) "Next, it eaid—it I ii. ay be permitted to sneak of myself, nut in the way of van i v, bat to illustrate a principle—'We go into one of the rebellious states and choose a candidate tor tt e Vice Presidency.' — Thus the Union party declared its belief that the rebellious Males aie yet in the Union, and that their loyal citizens are still citizens of the United Siates And nuw there is but one great work for u- to do, tiiat is to put down ihe rebellion Uur duty is to sustain the Government and help it with all our might, o ctu-li ut a rebellion which is in violation of all that is right and sacred "Gov. Johnson said he had DO impas sioned appeal to make to the people in his own behalf. He had not sought the position assigned him by the National Convention Not a man iu ali the laud cau truthfully say that i have asked liiin to use his influence in my behalf in thai body, for the pi.Mtioti ulluttc-d to tne or for any* other. On the Contrary 1 have avoided the candidacy. But while 1 ha\ e not sought it, still, beii g cunferred upon me uusought, I apprecirtcd it the more highly Being conferred upoD toe with out solicitation, 1 shull vot decline it Ceme weal or woe, success or defeat, sink or swim, survive or peri-h, I accept the nomination, on principle, be the conse quence* what they may, 1 will do wi.at I believe to be uiy duty, i know there are those here who Lave a contempt for me. and I, on the other hand, teel my euperi ority to theui. "ARISIOCRACY." "I have always understood that there is a sort of exclusive aristociacv about Nashvilie whtch affects to despise all who do not come within its own little circle Let them enjoy their opinions—l have heard it said that, " 'Worth makes the man, the want of it the fellow.' "This aristocracy has been the bane of the slave states, Dor has the North been wholly free fTom its curse It is a class which I have always forced to respect me, for I have ever set it at defiance. The rep*ct of the honest, intelligent and in dustrious class I have endeavored to win by my conduct as a man. One of the chief elements of this rebellion is the op position of the slave aristocracy to being ruled by men who have riseu from the ranks of the people. "This atistocracy bated Mr. Lincoln b. cause he was of humble origin, a rail- , splitter iu early life. One of them, the jrLate secretary of Howell L'bb, s.iid to me one dav after a long conversation. -we peopie of tbe South will not submit to be governed by a man who lias coti e up fro i the ranks of the com moo people, a* Abe Lincoln ha- done,' He uttered the e sential feeling and spirit of the Southern rebellion Now it lias just oecuru-d to me. if this aristocracy is so violently op posed to being g< verued by Mi. Lincoln, what in the name of conscience w ill it do wi'h Lincoln and Johuson ? I reject witn scorn this whole idea of an ariogant aristocracy I believe that man is cara ble of self-government.irrespective of out ward circumstances ; and whether he be a laborer, a shoemaker, a tailor, or a gro cer, I hold with Jeffeison "Lai govern tnetu was made tor the convenience of man. and not man for the government The laws and constitutions were designed as instiuuisnts to promote his welfare. And hence, from this principle, I cou elude that governments can and ought to be obaoged tod amended t© conform to the warns, to the requirement* and pro gress of the people, ana the enlightened spirit of the age. Now if any of your, secessionists have lost faith io man's ca pability for self government, and feel un fit for this great right, go straight to reb eldotn, take Jeff. Davis, Beauregard and Bragg for your masters, and put thair collars od your neck. SLAVERY DEAD. "And here let me say that now is the time to recur to those fundamental prin-j ciples, while the land is rent with anar chy, and upheaved by the throes ot a mighty revolution. -While society is in this disordered state, and we are seeking security, let us fix the foundations of the \ government on principles of etetnal jus- 1 tice which will endure for all time. Ttiere is an element in our midst who are for perpetuating the institution of slavery.. Let .ne say to you Tennesseeans and men from the Northern States, that slavery isj dead. It was not murdered by me. I told you long ago what tbe result would be if you endeavored to go cut of the! Union to save slavery, that there would I be b oodshed, rapine, devastated fields,' plundered villages and cities. Therefore I urged you to remain in the. Union In trying to save slavery you killed it and 10-1 \our own freedom. Y'our slavery is dead, but I did not murder it. As Mac beth -aid to Batiquo'* bloody ghost: Never sh ike thy gory locks at me, Tliou canst not sas I did it.' "Siaverv is dead, and you must pardon me if Ido not mourn over it- dead b->dy ; you can bury it out of eig t. In restor ing the State leave cut that troublesome and duugervus element, aud u-e ouly tln-.-e par's of the machinery that wilt work iu harmony. HE BELIEVES IN EMANCIPATION. "Now iu regard to the biacke, I want to suy that liberty means liberty to work aud mjoj the lruils of your labor. Idle lie.-? i- not liberty. I desire that all men shall have a fair start and an equal chance in the race ot life, and let him succeed who has tlie most merit. This, I Hnuk, is a principle of heaven. lam fur eman cipation for two reasons; fiist, because it is right in itself, and fecund, because in tbe emancipation of slaves we break down an odious and dangerous aristocracy. I think we are freeing more whites than b.aek? in Tennessee. I want to see >!a very broken up, aud when its barriers are tbrown down, I want to see induetnous, thrifty emigrant? come pouring iu from all paits of the Country. Come on ! We need your labor, your skill, your capital j We want your enterprise aud invention, so that hereaiter Tennessee may rank with New England in the arts and me j chau c>, and mat when we visit the pat ent office at Washington, where ths in iugcoiou? mechanics of the fiee states have placed their models; we Deed noli biush that 'Jetmessee can show nothing but a tio-use-trap, or suuiething of about as n,uc i importance. Here is suit the uioM fertile for every agriculture ; a de lightful and healthy climate, forests, wa i ter power and mines of inexhaustible ■ nchne-s; come and help us redeem Ten-i nessee and make her a powerful aod flour ishing State. RECONSTRUCTION. "But in calliog a convention to restore the State, who sual! restore and re-e9tab lish it? Shall the man who gave his in flueoce and his means to destroy the Gov ernment ? Shall iie who brought this misery upon the state be permitted to control its destinies? It this be so, then ail this precious blued of our brave sol diers and officers so freely pouted out will have been wan'onlv spilled, aud ail glorious victories w ( ,u by our u< ble armies will go for nought \\ by all this carnage and devastation? It was that treason might be put down and traitors punished Therefore I soy that traitors should take a back seat in the icork of reconstruction. It there be but Jice thousand men in Ten nessee, loyal to the constitution, loyal to freedom, loyal to justice these true and faithful men should control the work of reconstruction and reformation absolute iy I say that the trai'or ha- eea-ed to be a citizen, and in joining the rebellion, has beeou e a public enemy. He forfeited his lig tto v..it wit 11 ova! men. when In rem.uuc d I.is citizenship, and sought t<. destroy our govern.*.ent. "\\ e say 10 the most honest and lndu* tri• • i!foreigner who comes from England r Germany to dwell auo i us aod to add to the wealth of the Country —before you can be a citizen you tuust stay here for five years. It we are so cautious ats ut hue fliers who voluntaiily renounce their homes to live with us, what should we av to the traitor, who although born and reared aoionp us, raised a paricidal • and against the government, which alwa - protected him? My judgment is toat lie should be subjeetrd to a severe indeal before tie is restored to citizenship A tellew takes the oath merely to save his property and denies the vaiidit\ of the oath, is a petjured man and not hi to be trusted. Before these repeotiog rebels can be trusted let them bring forth ; the fruits of repeotance He who helped j to make ail these widows and orphans who drapes tbe streets of Nashville in j mourning should suffer for his great crime. THE REBEL LEADERS. "The work i 9 in our bands. We can destroy this rebellion. With Giant thun deriDg away at tbe gates of Richmond, and Sherman and Thomas on their march towards Atlanta, the day will ere long be ; ours. Will any madly persist in rebel lion? Suppose that an equal number be slain in every battle, it is plain that the result must be the utter extermination of the rebels. Ah!—these rebel leaders have a stroDg personal reason for holding out—to save their Decks from the halter ! And these leaders euurl fee! the power of the government. Treason must be tnade odious and traitors must be punished and impoverished. Their great plantations mast be seized and divided into small farms and sold to honest, industrious men. ABUSES. "The day for protecting tbe lands and negroes of this rebellion is past. It is high time it was. I have been most deeply pained at some things which have come under my observation. We get men in command who, under the influence of flattery, fawning and caressing, grant protection to the rich traitor, while the poor Union man stands out in the cold, often unable to get a receipt or voucher for his losses. [Cries of'that's so !' from all parts of the crowd.] The traitor csn gel lucrative, contracts while the loyal uian i* pushed aside,unable to get just recogni tiun of his claims lam teliiug the truth. I care uothing for stripes and shoulder straps. I want them all to hear what i say. I have been on a gridiron for two years at the sight of these abuses. I blame not the government for these wrongs, which are the work of weak or faithless subordinates. Wrongs will be committed under every form of govern ment and every administration. For my self, I mean to siaDd by the government till the flag of the Union shall wave over every city, town, hill-top and cross roads, in its full power aud majesty. THE MONBOE DOCTRINE. "The nations of Europe are anxious for our overthrow. France takes advao tage of our internal difficulties and sends Maximilian off to Mexico to set up a iuou urchy on our borders The day of reck ooitig is fast approaching. The time is not tar distant when the rebellion will be put down, and then we will attend to this Mexican affair, and say io Louis Napo leon. 'You can set up no monarchy on this Continent [Gteai Japj-lause.] An expedition into .Mexico would be a sort of recreation lu our brave s -ldicrs who are fighting the battles of the Union, and the Fieoch concern would quickly be wiped iu' Let u> be united I kLOW there are but two parlies now, one for the e"Uutr\ and one agaitisl it and I am for my country. "I aiu a Democrat in tlie strictest meaning of the tetm lam for thi gov ernment because \\ is Democratic —tbe government of the people. lam fur put tiog down this rebellion, b-cause it is a war agaiust Democracy He who stands off stirriug up oiscouient in this State and higgling about negroes, is practically in the rebel campaud encourages treason, lie who iu Indiana or Ohio makes war upon the government out of regard to slavery '.s ju.M as bad. The salvation ol the country is now tbe only business which concerns tbe patriot. "In conclusion, let us give our thauks, not formal but heartfelt thanks, to these gallant officers and soldiers, who have come to our rescue, and delivered u> from the rebellion And though money be expended, though life be lost, and farms and cities desolated, let the war for the Union goon, and the Stars and Stripes be bathed if need be in a nation's blood, till the law be restored and freedom firmly established.'' Governor Johnson retired amid loud and continued cheering and the large crowd dispersed to their homes I)ANGER.'L"t - -One day a butcher ha v. ing ordered hi- new assistant to bring the victim to the slaughter, who. not b serving that his superior was cro-s eved. until the vety instant he was drawing the blow, cried out in an exclamatory voice: "Sir, do you mean to strike where you look ?" "Yes " "Well, you may hold the ox then, I wen't!" 'l like you," said a girl to her soiior. "but I cannot leave home I am a widow's onlv dariing; no husband can equal my parent in kindness " "She may be kind." replied the wooer, "but be my wife—we will all live together, and see if I dnn't beat vour mother." tGT' Many who think themselves the pillars of tbe ohurcb, are ooly ittjleepera. TERMS.--$1.50 PER ANNUM. THAT'S IT. It was well remarked by Wayne Mc- eajjh, Esq., at the recent State Con vention : "The American people coold not be led by any man, but now at the end of three years of fire and crimson, of heart throes and civil war, this awkward, unlettered, ungainly man, the scoff of European t}- rants and traitors at home, has come out the choice of his people. "Gettysburg was greater under God than Marathon. e are here again to take care, if need be, by oar lives, that Government for the people, and by tbe people shad not fail. In the future the Emancipation Proclamation will be re garded as the greatest consummation of freedom. In that day some black men will be re-uembered with gleaming bayo nets and flashing eyes, as having helped to preserve our liberty, while some white men will be remembered with curses as having striven to hinder it." (Chcefs.) Of McClelian lie said, "He will be re membered as a great genera) without a victory, a great statesman without an act of justice. He who votes with the party owoed by Fernando Wood, of New York,, and Yallandigham of Canada, cannot be classed as our eouDtrymeu. The tail of the Rebellion is wriggling here in your loyal btates: the hearts of the Copper heads are behind the bayoDets of the le gions of Rebellion (Cheers.) This waf is to be wou by loyal votes, and when it is saved the announcement wili be made to the southern traitors that we never failed in the purpose we enunciated three years ago (Cheers ) Now, iu the early sgring, while our braves are lyiDg still iu death along the sileut marches of Antie lam, ot Lookout Mountain, and hundreds of battle-fields, let us tell the South, a* you went out uoder Abraham Lincoln, by the grace of God, you shall come back under Abraham Lincoln. (Immense oheer ing.) They will understand this when the musketry of General Gram shall be heard before Richmond." That's it exactly. "Let u, tell the South at you went out under Abraham Lincoln , by the. grace ot God, you t'iall jcome back under ABRAHAM LINCOLN." 1 t —- Wbo First Iried a Drafts In the history of the administration of President Lincoln, by Mr. Henry J. Ray mond, just published in New York, wo find a letter which we commend to the atteutioo of the adlu rents of General Mc- Clelian who have so violently opposed drafting to fill up the armies. It was wiitten to the President of the United States about a mcnth after the battle of Bull Run, and at a time when citizens were rushing to arms all over the coun try, and when volunteers were pouring into Washington from every State. Here is the letter: "WASHINGTON, August 20, 1861. SIR: 1 hare just received the enclosed dispatch in cipher. Colonel Marcy knows what he says, and is ot the coolest judg ment 1 recommend that the Secretary uf \\ ar ascertain at once by telegram how the enrollment proceeds in New York and elsewhere, and that, if it is not p"o -ceediug with great rapidity, drafts be made at once.
