This English-man smiled as he thought how he Possessed the wonderful golden key That unlocks the treasures of land and sua ; And waving the key he said " Oh see All the Worklngmen flocking to me !"

ADDRK3S OF THE REPUBLICAN UNION STATE COMMITTEE TO THE PEOPLE OF TIIE STATE. FelloxthCithm of Connecticut The day again rapidly approaches when you will be called, under our ancient freeman's iatli, to Rive your vote touching matters that 'V Accent tM State and the United States, " as "V flu shafl Judge will conduce to the best good of the same, without respect of persons or favor of any man." And it again becomes our duty to earnestly and seriously to com mend to you the candidates and principles of the Union Republican party. If you sometimes grow .weary of these reit erated appeals, reflect that the time will never come in a republican government when you may honorably suffer an election to pass with out studying the pending issues and casting your vote with intelligence and integrity. Reflect that, tedious as the long contest may at times appear, it can never seem so tedious as did to your citizen soldiers the exhausting sieges and marches through which they main tained an unfaltering faith in God and Liber ty. Reflect that all our sacrifices now are but trifles or pleasures compared with the agonies of the battle field, and the slow tortures of the prison pen. llold fast to the great work till all be settled upon the foundations of Justice, Liberty and Equal Rights. No other settle ment will give yaw rest. " Unfinished ques tions have no pity tor the repose of man kind." Posterity will never cease to look upon this generation with contempt, if we lazily lose in peace what we so gloriously won in war, and the results of the magnificant struggle.are in a great measure yet in doubt. It is not yet certain that treason is to be deemed a disgrace ful crime, nor that defeated but unrepentant traitors may not become dictators of the terms of peace and the chief architects, under their own plans, in rebuilding the Union they had so nearly destroyed. . . When the armies of the rebellion surrend ered, treason was apparently shattered and crashed beyond recovery. We do not stop here to ask by whose fault it comes, but to day tne spirit or rebellion sis stubbornly re fuse submission to the national will as when it fired upon Sumter, and, save a small and honorable minority,, the mass of prominent traitors have resumed their reign of terror in their several States, crushing down the op , pressed, long-suffering people, or misleading the ignorant, and they arrogantly denounce all further terms or conditions of restoration. Buttheothe day, the Democracy of Ken tucky, hailed as brethren by. the democracy of Connecticut, nominated rebels for office vehemently cheered the arch-traitor Brecken- ridge,and tumult nous! y ahsited their profane J ue nance oi the Uongress oi the United States. It is the unanimous official testimony of the leading officers of the army acattered over rebellions region, and they are non-partlzan by habit and duty that in the greater por tion of the South, the lives and property of loyal men are in constant danger. In ten States the trial of a white man for the mur der of ft colored loyal roan would be a farco, and white Unionists fare but little better. Loyal men in the rebel States are daily driven irons their homes ; the honorable uniform of the army is insulted ; the flag is insulted ; and. the northern man who would leave the main lines of travel must hold his peace or avow Ida sympathy with treason. In the official language of Major General Thomas : " With too many people of the South, the late civ'l war is called a ' revolution," rebels are called confederates,' loyalists to-the whole country, are called ' damned, Yankees' and ' traitors,' and over the whole great crime, with its ac cursed record of slaughtered heroes, patriots murdered because of their true-hearted lore of country, widowed wives and orphan child ren, and prisoners of war slain amid such hor rors as find no parallel in the history of the world, they are trying to throw the gloss of respectability, and thrusting with eontnmely and -derision from their society, the men and women who would not join hands with them in the work of ruining their country. Every where in tiie States iatkly nr bebel- I.IOH TREASON IS RESPECTABLE AND LOYAL. TTODioua. This, tho people of thd United States who ended the rebellion and saved the country, , will not permit, said all attempts to maintain this unnatural ostler of things will be met with decided disapproval. t - - Cannon and drums may be silent, yet the struggle is not over while these things are ThA Ann A nrtll li AoA n TTO i n If tVinw bVv a" A in i x v-4 1 m suuerou u remain true, act iwvd ui . Vvnecticut a party that by its presses, ora- ana conventions, denounced coercion, ae- i cuu nwion ' an acoompiisnea xaci, ojs- 11 oouraged the enlistment of every soldier, de nounced successively every measure of the war, never rejoiced over a Union .victory, nev er thanked the living soldiers, or mourned over the "noble army of martyrs," and never in its official utterances expressed a desire for the triumph of the Union armies or used the words "treason," "rebel" and "traitor;" and uniformly denied the ballot to our soldier in the field ; a party that, in its two conventions just held, has by resolution declared the re bellious States to . have been the moment armed resistenes ceased, reinstated and re stored to all their rights and privileges," " en titled to representation in the Congress of the United States , and to all other rights and privilege of e4 tea, "and has - denounced, the measures of Congress for imposing, terrns. of justice to the loyal, and security, for the fu ture as i violation of the Constitution, revolu tionary and tyrannical, and as the "factious course of a mutilated Congress who have in augurated anew revolution, determined to rule in violation of the constitution, and to establish their mid and fanatical .. will as a substitute for the Union 1" Here in Connecticut stands this party .strong in organization and resources, boasting of the wealth of its candidates, and again vaunting its threats of civil war, shoulder to shoulder with the rebels who, in all Bave the arms they have lost, are the same as in the bloodiest day of the rebellion : here in Connecticut, a State that sacrificed six thousand lives, not to face rebels back at the point of the bayonet into offices and privileges that the contemp tuously abandoned at the cost of their oaths, not to maintain the mere name of the Union, but to vidicate the principles upon which the Union is based, for which it was built, and without which it falls !" . Men of Connecticut ! Is patriotism dead among us? Have we forgotten the dark days of trial when we promised justice if Heaven would give us victory ? Soldiers of the Re public ! Send your ballots where you sent your bullets straight into the heartof the rebellion. Citizens of Connecticut ! vote as you voted when Terry stormed Fort Fisher, when Sheridan sent Early whirling up the valley, when Sherman sent his shout of encourage ment from Atlanta, or when Grant ordered his triumphant legions into Richmond ! Heaven bless- the women of Connecticut ! their coun try always has their prayers. How long shall it remain a reproach to the intelligence, virtue and true democracy of our people that of all, the States formally distinguished as . free States, this one contains the most violent type of rebel sympathizers, and holds the most Closely contested elections! Without this Northern aid and comfort unreconciled trait ors would yield and speedily submit to the -"-ma uroposed. full peace would bless us, the rigUts of all be respectea, arid u -! sullenly lingering social hatreds of the war begin to fade away. That the Northern wing of the rebels shows so much strength, that allies of rebellion are not hopelessly crushed by the infamy of their record must be due to the apathy of good citizens who wish well but work little. The sham de mocracy of Connecticut stopped short of nothing save taking arms in sustain ing those who fought for the doctrine that M capital should own labor," yet it tried to ap pear as the particular friend of free labor ! It sustained and defended men who declared the laboring classes must always and everywhere be the "mudsills" of society, yet it spends money to purchase the friendship oT working men ! And while the enemy of free labor in the national councils, it falsely claims to be its friend at home. But on the contrary the Union Republican party in its principles and candidates is fully indentified with rights and dignity of labor, and will most cheerfully co-operate in secur ing to labor both by State and Nationol leg islation the rights and benefits it justly de mands. In the grand struggle for human rights in Great Britian every John Bright and O'Dono ghue, English and Irish leader or worker in the ranks of the people, is the ardent friend of the Republican party of this country, yet this sham democratic party hypocritically claims the vote of every immigrant ! When the operatives of Lancashire and Cheshire heardjtheir wives and children Jcrying for bread, because there was no cotton for the mills, secession agents went among them to stir up tumult umous demands that England and France should break the blockade. The working men time and again, filled the halls, called Heaven - to witness that they would starve before they' would take sides against the Union, passed . resolutions in favor of our war for free labor, and gave great cheers for Lincoln ! Yet, because the great slave labor rebellion has brought us temporary burdens, these " Democratic " allies of aristocracy and rebellion think that the working men of Con necticut, who bore their full and glorious share of a four years' war for liberty, can now be de luded into following copperheadism ! ' Shall we be less true to humanity than ou good friends among a hard-working people three thousand miles away ? , . , Fellovrcitizens ! Since our last election the Congress of the United r States has proposed an amendment to the National Constitution with which you are all familiar. Its cordial adoption and application in good faith would have led to an early settlement. Connecticut was the first to ratify the proposition. The bellious States have, unanimously rejected it,. following the . advice and encouragement of their northern allies, and have proceeded throughout their extent to render life and- property unsafe and treason everywhere re spectable and loyalty odious." Congress has in the meantime been sustained, by over whelming majorities, and, thus anew com manded and instructed it has enacted that the rebel States shall be "divided into military dis tricts, subject to the iTesident 8 orders, for the Detection ot the people where the emi tri bunals fail. It W provided that whenever any rebel State shall - have formed and ap proved a constitution by the- 'votes of all its people of whatever race or color, (excluding those leading rebels excluded from office by the Dendincr constitutional amendment.) and shall have adopted that amendment, and when said amendment shall have become part of the Constitution of .the United States, then the senators and representatives of said States shall be admitted to Congress on taking the prescribed oath. It is provided also that until said admission any civil governments in those States shall be deemed provisional only, and in all elections therein all loyal persons may vote. This legislation, sanctioned by more than two-thirds of Congress: and by votes enough- to constitute a majority of a full representa tion- of all the States, is an issue in our elec tion. Thus again are we called at a critical tune to indicate the sentiments of our people, and our 'party- had anticipated the new fea ture of Congressional action -by taking the only broad, just, generous, true democratic Ltround tla canal Mts of all men at the ballot box. . It is but truth to say that OUT de feat would be a. national calamity. Our oppo nents would exultantly defeat every possible aaeasnre to give security aarainst treason, or extended liberty to the people. - We accept gladly the honor of contending for Justice, liberty and Equal Rights, and confidently appeal to the tteople to give the cause no mere success, bat an overwhelming. triumphant victory : a victory that shall take away the last hope of treason and rejoice the heart of every loyal man throughout the South ; a victory that shall give them victory, turning the scales at last and bringing us in view of the real glorious final settlement. ..' The law prescribes .death for treason, and every .rebel's life is forfeited, but we ask for no .deaths in these measures of reconstruction the law would confiscate every.rebel's prop erty, but we have asked for no confiscation ; the law would ? forever disfranchise every rebel, but these measures disfranchiss only the leaders temporarily, and afterwards per mit them to vote but not to hold office until Congress shall remove the disability; Milder terms were never offered before to any defeat ed rebellion. .:. t . . Full liberty and safety for all men this is m. .X . . . . . ... - mands with a will compounded of all the ..i, - ,;n r n I tremendous forces of the last six years. " Rev olutions never go backward." This people shall be free. Heaven has evidently willed it and led us te it. 1 Let us with one heart arouse for the con flict ! Leave no lawful step untried. Glorify labor by the great purpose that animates us. See that no true men lose votes by removals or journeys. See that all young men or adopted citizens are duly admitted or registered. Pro mote the reading of good papers and pam phlets. Select good committee men in every school district. On no account fail to bring every registered Republican to the polls. This work is practical sympathy with oppressed loyalists; without this your good principles and feelings are worth little to yourself and the rest of the world. With our duty faithlul- lv performed we elect our few members of Congress, and thus preserves the front of New England unbroken ; shall carry the State, and the good cause will gain the most glorious and significant victory in the history of our party, and we shall give joy to every loyal man in the nation. . All parties, here or in Europe, that are fight ing to give light and liberty to all the people are of our party, and we of theirs when the line falters in one spot the whole line feels the loss.

Politics is no part of my trade. One day, about four . weeks ago, some of the boys said we must elect delegates to the "Wbrkingmen's Convention at New Haven, and they wanted to put me on. . I don't care any thing about that," I replied, " only I that our side wins, and I our side wins, and 1 want to have it win every time because we must keep the old party that stood-by ns when we were down to the' front stiff-backed against those fellows who refused to let us vote, and who called us all sorts of hard names." After some further discussion that day, and for three or four days after ward, our Union held a meeting, and was appointed one of the delegates. On Friday morning, the day the Convention met, I went down to the depot to take the first train to New in- at 1.1 r -w naven. adoui tne nrst man i saw on the platform was A. E.

Just then there was a humming noise around the doorway, and, on looking around, I saw thirty or forty good looking chaps who were' elbowing their way through a crowd of copper heads as if they had some sort of bus iness to do that thing, and just at that particular and eventful mo ment, you ought to have seen A.

After organizing, by the appoint-. ment of officers it was discovered that the permanent chairman, a chap named Gibson,' I bcljove, who has been working on the pay of English for two or tliree months, was as deaf as an adder.
