He advised submission to All Laws however odious and oppressive but counselled resistance should an attempt be made to a prevent the free expression of popu a opinion at the ballot Box this fall. Or. Ancona pledged Berks As Good for at least seven thousand Forf judge Woodward a and hoped that Lebanon county would heretofore for to. Abili historical comparison of the reigns of terror of 179� and in a a. Frum the dem Unita or. Hay As a native of Pennsylvania born and bred in the Good old jeffersonian and Snyder is school of democracy in old Berks county i cannot but feel rejoiced and encouraged to see once More the democratic spirit of 99 aroused in my Nativa state. Old democratic Berks was county in the state and the Union in which the True democracy a Rose in 99 to oppose the reign of terror inaugurated by the federalists under the administration of the elder Adams. The alien sedition and gag Laws which made it seditious and criminal for citizens to meet peacefully to express or print or utter any sentiments of Josed to or censuring the National administration or any Federal officer was first attempted to be enforced in the arrest of Henry Snyder and the suppression of his German democratic paper in Reading. This Federal tyrannical usurpation aroused at once the a democratic spirit of a Little a spartan band of Noble patriots headed by John frees and Juhn Miller who held a democratic meeting at Miller s i 1, m Elas township some five or seven Miles Northeast from Reading and passed resolutions disapproving of the Federal administration and the. Arbitrary arrest of Snyder and the suppression of his paper and asserting their inherent constitutional right to the Freedom of speech and of the press. Government soldiers were at once forwarded from Philadelphia where the i seat of the Federal government was at that time do arrest this Noble and patriotic band of democratic Freeman. Miller made it owe ver his escape by biding under Jub in a barn and i often heard 1 Ujj Freand say to use his own words a Hairne Felt the cold steel of the Federal sword on his very body run into the Hay under which he Laid by the Federal bloodhounds As he called them who knew that he was somewhere in the barn but could not find him. But frees and eight of his compatriots were arrested dragged or forced to Easton and there locked up in a dark Cebar knee deep in water arid mud for forty eight hours a and then under a Strong guard of Federal soldiers drove like cattle to the Slaughter to Philadelphia imprisoned where they soon received a Hock trial. Frees was condemned to Tehyung and the others sentenced to the Penitentiary some for eight to nine and the others from one to five years. But the Federal usurpers in Power did not dare to hang frees. The True democracy arose in Pennsylvania and the whole Union in their might and sovereignty at that fall election and hurled the Federal tyrants and usurpers from Power. Thomas Kean was elected governor of Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson president of the Una to a states with overwhelming majorities. And the Federal administration did not dare to execute their sentence upon frees and his compatriots. And the very first official act that president Jefferson performed after his inauguration was to Pardon frees and his fellow victims of Federal persecution and tyranny and when they were released from their Long confinement the people met in a Large mass meeting before the jail and constructed a High platform on which they carried frees High above their Heads through the streets of Philadelphia amid the shouts and Huzzah of thousands of democratic free paen. It 1 bus ended the Federal tyranny and misrule in t799 and 1800. The alien and sedition Laws were repealed the Freedom of the press and speech and the rights and liberties of the people and a Good will among men a were once More restored and preserved by democratic men and measures in the administration of the government for sixty years until the present abolition administration came into Power and now we have in 1863, a reign of terror ten thousand times More tyrannical despotic and de grading to freemen than the reign ofter ror Irr �?T99. It is enough to make the patriotic blood boil with indignation in every honest democratic heart to see at this Day the base malicious persecution and tyranny of some of the very imps of these old a Federal bloodhounds a a now in Power in arresting abusing and denouncing the very sons of those democratic fathers who Are unwilling us were their patriotic sirs to Bow their Knees and necks to the present abolition tyranny. Quot a j. M. Powerful but peaceful Agency of the ballot Box. Of the subversion of the original purpose of the War by the administration the people Are fully acquainted. The removal of gen. Mcclellan which was followed by disasters of the most heart rending character and at last terminated in the invasion of our state when the honest yeomanry were plundered and robbed of minions of dollars Bas not been forgotten by those who have the Power to displace their rulers. It is not strange that when this array of facts is placed before the minds of the people they have a desire to be rid of such Woodward will be elected Ivy an immense majority the record of gov. Curtin s unfaithfulness and the unspotted character of his opponent Wilt not be overlooked by those who Are the elect Rig Power. The arrest and imprisonment of pennsylvanians without Quot due process of Law. Received no dissenting voice from the present abolition candidate for gubernatorial honors and the people have deter mined to elevate a Man to that position who will respect the rights of the citizen. The people have also read the extracts from the Pittsburg Gazette a paper disseminating abolition doctrines in which the character of Andrew g Curtin is so truthfully portrayed and they Are resolved to elect a Man whose integrity has been tried and not found wanting and that Man is judge Woodward the corruptions of the Curtin administration have not been forgotten by the honest people of this state and hence their desire to have him Defeated. Next in importance to the election of governor is the selection of a demo Ratic majority in both branches of the legislature to investigate the charges of corruption which have been repeatedly made against the state administration and to bring to Justice those who Are found guilty. If the abolitionists Are permitted to obtain a majority in either House they will not permit such investigation and of this the people Are fully aware. Let the democrats not cease in their vigilance to drive from Power those who have aided in the destruction of this government and the 14th of october will Dawn upon us with Victory inscribed an our banners.

They know the it this War which is now. Devastating this country might have been prevented had it not been for the insane policy of the abolitionists and they have made tip their minds to try the Virtues of the dem. Cratie party in the restoration of the Union. They Are perfectly cognizant of the fact that had the present National administration the love of country at heart they Eodald have terminated this War Long ago and1 the citizens of this state will show to the minions at Washington that violations of the Constitution will not be tolerated either in times of War or when the nation is at peace. They have seen the partizan and malignant spirit which pervaded the Mina of Abraham Lincoln in the arrest of democratic citizens who Are better patriots than he and permitting such men As Wendell Phillips to declare that there labors Baye be ii confined for years to the destruction of the american Union,.apd, they intend to express their. Disapprobation of a bes acts of the president through the a line from a Soldier. Near White Oak Church feb. 15, 1863 a Little Over a year ago we were filled with patriotism and joined the army it was then we could see what Honor what glory it was to take up arms in Defenso of the Constitution of the stars and stripes and to crush rebellion. We thought of what our honoured ancestors had done of the Many Fields of glory with which their names Are enrolled and of the Many hardships they had undergone to gain the Freedom of this country a and then shall we allow this glorious Fegley to be divided to be trampled non by an armed band of traitors have the children of our forefathers already lost that Noble food which has been our Pride ?. It was through such thoughts a amp these that we a enlisted in the army when we joined encouraging prom uses were made a Bounty of one Hundred dollars when the War is Over a Fine farm also pay every two months plenty of Good clothing &e., and on marching Knapsacks even were to be hauled the a War Resolution was to be All we were to fight for and our government was Only to be Guf oed by the Constitution in quelling the rebellion. Well indeed would it have been for our country had a honest Afier stood fast to his Good promises we went upon the Peninsula Early in March 1862, had a Good share of the Road making the flitch digging and the picketing to do along the Warwick to say nothing of a severe skirmish and followed after the rebels when they got afraid of a Little Mac a and skedaddle from their Strong fortifications at Yorktown bad a hand in the Battle at Williamsburg Ai fair Oaks in the seven Days fight and since off of the Peninsula in other Battles which it is not in place Here to Quot talk of. We Are Here now ready and willing to fight for the sume a via Caples we enlisted for but for those which the government sees fit to make its own we Are opposed to handling the Musket. We have seen too much of the Nigger we believe the negro is better off in slavery than lie is with his Freedom having seen him in both positions we Are of the firm opinion that the rebellion never will be crushed if the presidents emancipation proclamation is to be the Battle cry. Let the government give to us our much loved gen. Me Lellan let it take the Constitution for its direction in All affairs of administration let it take More care of the White Soldier than it does for the col ored slave that its army i8 less imposed upon by the speculators in shows in clothing of every kind and allow the men As my Etc a year As they need without taking it off their wages taking All in All let it act As an honest faithful and government would act and the army will take new hop the enemy will be beaten and the rebellion crushed. Instead of this however a honest abet appears to think the White Soldier Only Bis slave. The favorite offi ears Are removed perhaps because their principles Are not As Black As those of the administration and it May be too that they Are not aristocrat c enough to sup the tastes of Abraham and maj have made them Seves so Low As to speak to common soldiers.
