Do not forget the meeting at Union town to Morrow excursion tickets by railway Fine weather Abenti us country a live crowd and a pleasant time generally i our friends there Senda special invitation to the boys in Blue inviting also our clubs to attend and take part in the Torch Light procession of the evening. Let us Send up a Good delegation to cheer our struggling friends on that hard Battle Field 1 a a. A in we print the address of Gen. Blair made last evening precisely word for word As pronounced by him being the Only phonographic report made of his remarks. The speech As printed by our contemporaries this morning is a document dictated by or. Blair to reporters during the afternoon in his rooms at the hotel and is not the speech As delivered and now printed in the Gazette. The discrepancies. Between the speech As written and spoken Are very decided. The Brilliant a Guries of the last few weeks have filled the republicans of this Region with a wild enthusiasm. That quasi to is Well enough in ifs Way but it is not a Good substitute for hard work in conducting a Campaign. Republicans Only a fortnight remains before the october election. Much is to he done in this Short space. What we want is not. Simply a Victory hut such a one As shall he absolutely decisive of the whole Campaign. To this end the attendance at the polls of every Republican voter must be secured. This is a matter of detail and pains taking which Mere enthusiasm is Likely to is not sufficient that your neighbor will vote for Grant and Colfax and so stay away from the october election. One vote added to the majority of Hartranft and Campbell will Avail More than Twenty vortex added to the majority in november. Act on this presumption and get out two weeks lie Nee every Republican voter. I Gen. Francis p. Blair. On the 30tli of last june just prior to the assembling of the democratic National convention this gentleman wrote a letter to or. Brodhead which found its Way immediately As was intended into the newspapers. That letter contains three remarkable paragraphs which read As follows a if the president elected by the democracy enforces or permits others to enforce these reconstruction acts the radicals by the accession of 20 spurious senators and 50 representatives will control both branches of Congre a and Bis administration will be As powerless As the present one of or. Johnson. _ a there is but one Way to restore the government and the Constitution and that is for the president elect to declare these acts null and void compel the army to undo its us ii potion at the South disperse the carpet bag state governments allow the White people to re organize their own governments and elect senators and representatives. The House of representatives will contain a majority of democrats from the North and they will admit the representatives elected by the White people of the South and with the co operation of the president it will not be difficult to compel the Senate to submit Onta More to the obligations of the Constitution. It will not be Able to withstand the Public judgment if distinctly invoked and clearly expressed on this fundamental Issue and it is the sure Way to avoid All future strife to put the Issue plainly to the country. -. A i repeat that this is the real and Only question which we should allow to control us shall we submit to the usurpation by which the government has been overthrown or shall we exert ourselves for its full and Complete restoration ? it is Idle to talk of Bonds greenbacks Gold the Public Faith and the Public credit. What can a democratic president do in regard to any of the with a Congress in both branches controlled by the carpet baggers and their allies he will be powerless to Stop the supplies by which Idle negroes Are organized into political clubs by which an army is maintained to protect these vagabonds in their outrages upon the ballot. These a d things like these eat up the revenues and resources of the government destroy its credit add make the difference Between Gold and greenbacks. We must restore the Constitution before we can. Restore the finances and to do this we must have a president who will execute the will of the people by trampling into the dust the user patios of Congress known As the reconstruction acts. I wish to stand before the convention upon this Issue but it is one which embraces everything else that is of value in its Large and comprehensive results. It is the one thing that includes All that is Worth a contest add without it there is nothing that gives dignity Honor or value to the this language is singularly direct and unambiguous. It is susceptible of Only one construction unless through Manifest and inexcusable violence. In Point of fact both political parties in both geographical sections of the Union instantly gave the same interpretation to it. Throughout the South the leaders in the late rebellion were delighted because it gave voice to their own thoughts and feelings. At the North All the democrats whose sympathies ran with the rebellion received it with the same manifestations of applause. It gave or. Blair the nomination for the vice presidency and on a platform made to match his epistle. The candidate and the declaration of principles were greeted with great enthusiasm All Over the revolted states. Orators and journalists in All the principal towns of those states vied with each other in praising or. and his letter and in commending the convention for its courage in selecting him As a Standard bearer. He was hailed As the pre ordained Leader of a fresh assault upon the government in the interests of the men who surrendered to Grant and Sherman. Merely to eat his own words. Quot we put it in this shape for everybody understood him. He was not misrepresented but simply wished to be interact the mischief his bold utterances had done his party. And now or. Blair is upon a pilgrimage Over the Northern states to put a forced and unnatural construction upon a letter the authenticity of which he cannot deny. He asserts in substance that he was misunderstood alike by Quot Friend and foe. No Man was Ever so unfortunate before. Docs he attach a meaning to words and sentences entirely Peculiar to himself then he should not presume to address the Public until he has acquired a speech that can be understood without an interpreter. But what Assurance can the people possibly have if he used language in the letter to or. Brodhead in so unusual a sense As to mislead every body that they comprehend his meaning now ? last evening or. Blair undertook to defend himself and the interpretation he now seeks to put on Liis Broadhead letter before the citizens of Pittsburgh so far As his audience was composed of democrats we have no hesitancy in expressing the belief that they liked that Tetter not at All Asho explained it but vastly As or. Hampton expounded it when it first appeared in the newspapers. Or. Blair was careful to have his speech not simply prepared beforehand but put in Type in Advance of his delivery of it and proof slips thereof furnished to All the reporters of the press who were charged to take notes of what he said. We have not space this morning to comment in detail upon or. Blair a attempted change of base. That task will require a separate article. It is sufficient for us to say now that or. Blair a explanation not Only comes too late but is of such a character As to do neither himself nor his party a particle of Good. His present duplicity is transparent even to the dullest an Reheis Sion. His purpose is not to recant and atone for his recent violence but so to allay the alarm he created As to gain a position from which he would be Able to put his threats into execution. For this he is too late. The people understand the issues it is Quot their duty to Settle at the ballot Box and no amount of chicanery will deflect them from the fulfilment of the purpose they have already made up to avoid the possibility of serious trouble in the a ear future by the election of Grant and Colfax. Quot political party Are to be removed from the statute Book not by their constitutional and orderly repeal by the Law making depart ment nor by their condemnation As invalid by the revising Power of the judiciary but by the new democratic plan of nullifying disagreeable Laws by violently overturning and defying them. This defines the Issue too plainly to be misunderstood. Republicanism save that no Law. Once legally enacted no matter How unpopular it May be least of All when so just and necessary in its Purview As the reconstruction acts shall be modified amended or i abrogated except in the due course of legislation or of judicial scrutiny condemnation. The democracy de the right to nullify Laws by military irrespective of the regular constitutional methods. One party upholds the Sanctity of Law As the Law supreme the other appeals to the stronger might of the Bayonet the one party Points to the ballot Box As the Only met god of redress under our constitutional government for any wrongs real or imaginary while the other avows its traitorous preference for a forcible and revolutionary resistance. The democracy Are at iras pfc consistent in this for they propose now exactly what they did in a cd when beaten by the ballots of a majority they resorted to bullets. A idiots against bul ets is the Issue they now make before the people and upon that Issue we have no hesitation in meeting them and intend to overthrow them once More. Repeal and i Mand Force Are you assessed the freedmen a Bureau. The entire Cost of the Freedman a Bureau including the very Large expenditure to feed the starving White rebels was Only a Little Over six millions of dollars unto August 1st, �?T68. The annexed letter tells the whole depot. Bureau of rep gels freedmen and abandoned lands it Washington aug. 5, 1868. Hon. J. G. Blaine Avgusta me. -. Dear sir i have replied by Telegraph to i your letter this Moraine and herewith enclose some Cip is of a letter to or. Eliot which i Drew up a few Days ago. That letter covers the expend Tures for three years from january 1, 1865, to january 1, 1868. The Bureau was organized in May 1865, and got fairly under was in july 1865. The accounts of the old a department of freedmen a affairs were turned Oyer to this Bureau and Are All included in the statement of expenses.

I7x there was nothing unnatural in this except that under the circumstances so ranch frankness and audacity should he displayed we saw proper at the time to collate extracts from these culmination a which made two full pages of this journal for the. Enlightenment of our readers. Other Republican journals through the Loyal states aided in disseminating the exultation und threats which or. Blair a letter and his subsequent nomination inspired. The impression made upon the people of the Northern states was instantaneous and profound. The Northern democratic leaders promptly discovered that they and or. Blair had miscalculated the temper of popular opinion outside of their own organization and measurably inside of it. Consequently the swiftly despatched orders to the chief Southern cities that All swaggering of fresh violence must cease. Some of the newspapers thus admonished concluding that dissimulation would he profitable took the hint and followed it with alacrity. Others of them directed by Blurry and a complying writers not Only refused but in addition revealed what injunctions had been Laid upon them. This courageous but indiscreet avowal added to the disgust and alarm which pervaded multitudes of minds All Over the North. Among the orators or. Wade Hampton had been conspicuous for the intensity of his bravado. But he yrs prevailed upon to change front and even to deny that he had made the speeches attributed to him. With a blushing impudence to averred that the press of his own party and even of Southern cities had conspired to put thoughts into his head that he had never meditated and words with his month that he had never spoken. The pressure must have been very great when this Man who never shrank from the com Mission of an infamy waa thus induced de a setting things to our Northern democrats Are generally attempting to Dodge the Brodhead letter of general Blair but their cowardly tactics i Are scorned by the Southern rebel leaders of the party. For example the Mobile tri j bunt says of this letter j. J a this is the main Plank of the platform. A few timid politicians Anil pol troops May i revile Forrest Hampton and Blair but i Ali Sest Tesmen stand on the democratic platform which is Broad enough to support the South As Well As the j the Louisville courier of the 24tb, edited by the sex rebel general Buckner whose works at fort Donelson were so unpleasant a by and disastrously moved upon by general i Grant also says i a was to the letter we Thanik i Gen. Blair for his exposition and. To we Are concerned to endorse it to the full a est extent. A i there could to no doubt As to Tho position j of Tho party on the subject. This general Blair knew when he Pernod his letter. He j knew that his a tews entirely accorded with the views of the part v. If there a re i Hose of we Are led to infer from the language of the tintes a Hoe Deavor to quibble about or explain away Blair swords the East we can say is that we do not comprehend their democracy and that we have to manner of sympathy with them. What Blair said was Well timed and to the purpose and As we have said we thank him for it. It was a Manly and bold avowal of democratic sentiment and presented a practicable solution of the reconstruction Pron Lom. A that w hich we have to consider and the country has to consider is what can Bedone now to set things to rights. This problem u Terai Blair has solved in the Only Way that it was possible to s Lve it. Radical usurpation renders a settlement of the difficulty through the medium of the courts impracticable and the Only Way therefore and it is indeed the Plain and obvious one is for the incoming democratic admins to ration to see that the highest Law of the land thu Constitution is enforced and maintained.

The party sneaks at the North will perceive that this is a crack of their old master s whip they Are not to be permitted to Retreat from any position which satisfies the views of Tho Southern democracy. The Brodhead letter is distinctly affirmed to lie of the essence of current issues and to afford the Only Correct guide for an a incoming democratic the democracy arc also distinctly advised and the country is informed trial the Brodhead letter Maua the armed and forcible intervention of the executive and nothing else general Blair himself excludes Congress from any participation in the business of a setting things tin his suggestion that the Senate should be a compelled to submit was rather the rounding of a rhetorical period than the expression of any Well founded expectation. The entire context of his letter supposes the exclusively Independent and arbitrary action of the president Lonc and indeed is based expressly upon the idea that no congressional concurrence Cau be hoped for. As to the judiciary although Blair did not literally declare its exclusion from the work of setting things to rights yet no other inferences can be drawn from what lie does say. And this is made clearly apparent in the above commentary by Gen. Buckner. A a settlement of the difficulty through the medium of the. Courts is impracticable says this cordial endorsement of the Blair programme and nothing remains available for a setting things to rights Quot except the sword in the presidents hands. Blair bits at judicial decisions declaring the of reconstruction but All his practical suggestions mean Only a presidential dictatorship. Buckner equally Frank but vastly More logical throws out the supreme court altogether. Thus both of the co ordinate departments of the government Are to be ignored and Laws duly enacted by the Congress of Tho United states but which Are distasteful to a hatred of Union soldiers. A if i could have my Way i would place Jeff. Davis in Congress where he richly belongs. Then i would go to Concord take All the miserable Battle flags a from the state House and make a Bonfire of them in the state House Yard. Great applause then i would go All through the North and destroy All the monuments and gravestones erected to the memory of soldiers. In Short i would put out of sight everything which reminds us that we Ever Lead a War with our Southern Brethren a Lido not know that i would bang on legged and one armed soldiers but i would Pray to god to get them out of Tho Way As Boon As possible.�?�Henry Clay Dean in a speech at Manchester n. H., february 1868. My. B. F. Butler was yesterday renominated for Congress in the fifth Massachusetts District receiving All but four out of 17 votes and Tho nomination was subsequently made unanimous. No Man in this country and Fow in any other have been to persistently or atrociously vilified and abused As Adverse newspapers and orators have seemed to consider themselves licensed to invent and promulgate any conceivable c ulu Uuie upon his reputation. But Liis rare endowments have enabled him successfully to endure and easily to surmount Aii the assault of Liis detractors. Be furnishes a living demonstration of the fact that a Man who has substantial matter in him and is True to himself cannot be written or talked Down. The instinct for fair play operates strongly in Liis favor and carries him along where he might otherwise fall. Gen. Grants dispatch of november 10, �?T64, to Secretary Stanton congratulating the president upon Tho grand Victory of Tho republicans in his re election was included in our recent report of the cd Secretary a speech at Steubenville. The publication of this dispatch attracts much a Tentio now in fact that for full three years after it was written democratic journals and leaders everywhere were advocating his nomination As president by their party. And to toil the truth they would gladly Exchange him for Seymour to Day. Nor has their preference for Tho victorious commander been so thoroughly uprooted but that thousands of honest democrats Are Bent on giving to him their votes. Never before were the Republican masses in Western Pennsylvania so thoroughly aroused its at the present moment. The majority on this Side of the alleghenies two weeks from to Day will be unprecedentedly Large.
