To the people of Pennsylvania in the midst of a fierce conflict for the National to Calls for Large reinforcements to enable our armies Success fully to combat with meeting the payment of extraordinary taxation to Supply the government with Money to conduct the War and submitting to in immense increase in the prices of living the people of Pennsylvania have nevertheless been Able for three years to maintain a Prosperity and secure a healthy operation in All the branches of their Trade a Prece in the annals of any country while engaged in the prosecution of a War. In trials of this bloody War with the Strug Gle just reaching its Climax the people of Pennsylvania suddenly find themselves in Voled in a political coolest invested with the hightest importance because fraught with the most momentous issues. Ordina Rily heretofore political contests meant Only a Choice of policy As to the manner of administering the1 government. The struggle of parties for the Possession of the Powers of government and merely to control their operation. Now however our political contests have resolved them selves into a direct and a positive Issue for the safety and the permanence of the government Becaum. Politically a Well As Flecty Onelly the contest at the ballot Box and in the Battle Field must decide whether the Union shall exist or Mierish with the Triumph or lie feat of one or the other of the contending parties. Hence the unwonted importance with which political campaigns now invested. Parties Are divided on issues which vitally concern the government. The Are composed of friends and enemies of that government to choose Between these parties equally interests the loyalty and that son. No Man can stand Neutral Between the two and. All that Are not fairly for the government will be justly recognized As its admitting that such is the new importance assumed by our political con tests we have an excuse As Well As a justification for. Entering on the contest fast a prow big for the amendments to the Constitution with ajl the Zeal in our nature and All the Devotion that should character ize the Patriot and the Lover of Bis country in Bis Effort to serve it. It would seem that on an amendment to the Constitution granting the Soldier a its injustice can Only be sustained by is tries founded in the worst political prejudices so that the sooner the Constitution arid Laws Are made Plain and rendered explicit on this subject and ported where every Man can read and understand them just so soon do we secure the strength and majesty of the government in the Confidence and respect of the so soon do we make our Good old state worthy of the past valor of her sons and glorious in the future. American citizenship has in Vir tues and these their merits. Each virtue can Only be exalted by serving the Ern ment under which they flourish but if that service is made a badge of degradation will it not be More natural for men of Honor and spirit and True courage to resist its rendition than voluntarily to accept the citizen Soldier Feela when be takes Una rms it is to defend not destroy his political rights. The Man who Sac Rifi. Ces Bis Businele interests and for stipulated time surrenders Bis personal Liberty cannot understand Ivy be should be deprived of his political rights. The service of arms does not Blunt the judgment or blur the ability of a citizen to exercise the elect the franchise. It n tier gives him a new title to the enjoyment of such a right and fits him for the highest privilege of it free government. A Joike the masses of As the democratic leaders now deny the right of the. Franchise to the soldiery it will need arms to protect it both from foreign and Domestic foes and perish eventually an object too mean for defence. In advocating the Soldier s right to vote the Loyal men of Pennsylvania Are sustained by a Faith in the fact that Bis service a such As to secure him not merely All the rights be enjoyed before he entered the army but increased dignity and Power at the hands of the Republic. The enemies of this great principle oppose it Only for reasons of expediency. There was a time when the democratic leaders claimed that the a Ray was largely and9 almost wholly composed of their partisan when they were most clamorous in insist ing upon the recognition of such a claim the supporters of the principle opposed politically to these leaders were most Earnest and even persisted is its advocacy. To them it was n principle of Justice too sacred to be Noble to be what do you think of seeing that it was mortal he could not articulate a reply neither could he restrain his team.
