Smethport Citizen (Newspaper) - June 16, 1860, Smethport, PennsylvaniaTo people of Pennsylvania t we about to enter another great National struggle the Uoo of which Matt Tell decisively for the weal or woe of oar common country. The to called democratic party has been in for nearly eight years and the fruits of policy Are now Felt in a prostrate Industry a paralysed Commerce a bankrupt Treasury and a Large and steadily increasing National debt. The Domestic peace and Harmony that witnessed the restoration of the party now in Power Hare been want Only exchanged for sectional discord and fraternal strife and even the sacred landmarks of the Constitution have been blotted out in the systematic Effort of the government to spread the blight of slavery Over free territory in Defiance of the popular will. Corruption has gained undisputed to Mastery in almost Evory department of Power and stamped its Feu Vul stain incl Lily upon the government. And shameless profligacy has Given us National bankruptcy at Home and nation Al Dishonour abroad. S the time Baa come when a thorough Reform is unmistakably demanded by the people. In thu great work Peon must As Ever to always Loyal in the last degree to to maintenance of the National Union and to the compromises of the Constitution and faithful to the supremacy of the Laws her people have no warfare to wage upon the rights of sister states. They will maintain these rights inviolate with the same Fidelity that they defend their own. Our free labor is the basis of All oar wealth oar Prosperity oar greatness. It has trusted and appealed in Vuin to the party in Power to protect it. Its Confidence has been Ever betrayed its interests Ever sacrificed. Our untold millions of slumbering wealth and our unemployed and unrequited labor Are Swift witnesses to the suicidal policy that has impoverished As. The studied purpose of the National administration Nas been to Section Alize the government and give boundless do minion to a system thut has dishonoured and beg Gared free Industry wherever its Deso lating stops have gone. Against this fatal sectional ism the friends of a diversified and prosperous Industry have protested without Avail. Nothing but a Radical change of administration can give reasonable Promise of respect for the Groat Industrial inter ests of our state and redress from the endless train of evils bowing from the Leith Lessuck of the government. The territories of the great West teem with Beauty and Richness. There with free Homes our sturdy sons would rear new empires to i our Forth their bound Leas wealth Ani add to the Prosperity and True greatness of our boasted re Public. They have escaped the Wither rag blight of Servile labor thus far on. By by defying whole Power of two adroinigtraiion8, and Leav ing a history Crim soned with the blood of oar Brethren. Failing to subdue even by Force the Strong arms that Are there scattering the Rich fruits of peaceful and enlightened the Constitution itself has been assailed and its sacred Aims prevented to Section Alizo the the startling declaration is now made by the party in Power through its official exponents that the Constitution roast defeat the Wise and Beneficent purposes of its authors and carry Servile labor Ander its own Broad shield into every territory of the Union. Restore the government to its original purity to redeem it from its fatal hostility to the interests of free la Bor from the corruption the profligacy and the sectional ism which have marked the Power Are the great purposes of the Peoples organization in Pennsylvania. To this Patri Otic end we invoke the Aid and Coop ration of All who desire to join in a common cause to inaugurate Liberal just and faithful government. Oar Standard bearers fitly represent the vital issues involved in the struggle. They command the unbounded Confidence of friends and the respect of foes. Even partisan malice is impotent to assail them. That Abraham Lincoln the nominee for president is spotless in both Public and private life and that be is honest and capable is confessed with one voice by his countrymen. His Well earned National Fame the off Spring of of fortuitous circumstances Points to him As the coming Mao who will administer the government honestly frugally and faithfully and restore the Republic to Domestic Tranquillity to Prosperity and to True to these great measures of Reform is Hannibal Hamlin our candidate for vice president As Isis two by his Long and consistent Public career in the councils of the nation. Their Ascendancy. Although rent Sunder with intestine fends antagonized North and South by irreconcilable differences of principle and bleeding from wounds inflicted within heir own there is one common Bond of onion that will rally their discordant forces when All else is the cohesive Power of Public our cause is worthy of an Earnest United Effort our languishing Indus try oar homeless labourers our bankrupt Treasury our National Tranquillity and National Honor demand it. With Early systematic and thorough organization by which the troth can be disseminated in every Section of the state we cannot foil to Triumph. Lot the efforts of our friends be Taos directed without delay and in whatever shape and under whatever Flag our opponents May determine to meet us the voice of the Keystone state will give a decisive Victory to oar cause alike in the state and National struggles a.
