Let me begin at the beginning that is exclaimed Are Seaks breathless with interest on arriving of the Hall. I was rimmed solely seized by four Fellows and taken upon the roof of the building. Here i was Tonguc tied and compelled to answer about a Hundred questions All having n direct bearing on astronomy what a queer exclaimed Are. Jenks. How i answered those questions must Ever remain i suppose a mystery to my it is however i did answer every i did not know it till to night there is a dipper and a chair and a four horse team and i Don t know what else in the sky. Is it not a pitty that this a science is so sadly neglected Why the next question is too absurd to e repeated. They wanted to know whether. I took b newspaper and if so Bow much 1 owed be Printer.

What an influence those newspapers do exert to be sure exactly but scarcely bad i answered Thesa queries satisfactorily when an immense shot up and we As quickly shot Down the roof of no i i in Proso we look the stairs but i waa secure y bound and Tongue tied. I hardly knew How we got Down. The apartment into which i was ushered was pitch b St Oag odor of the room Brimstone my dear yes it must have been Brimstone for nothing e be Coull Piave produced such a stifling Well of nil things.1 then begin the Roar of artillery with an occasional Volley of Small arms. In the midst of the tumult i heard Low Sweet voice chanting a by in of peace. Man shall love Bis song this Al War shall be waged to shall shall shall meet its fills the hearts of when this Happy Singer had ceased a ipod cry postage rent the air very Odd but just like these Odd Fellows they Are Seal replied the newly initiated Well my dear by then the lights were prepared i signed the Constitution. Well what of the cat of which Yon were speaking f nothing my dear Only they let her out and for a Gaiante she appeared quite bewildered. It was the first time i bad Ever that cat let out of the bag. But what struck me with the greatest Awe was the appearance of the lost tribes and the double jointed Bashaw who in a loud voice continually i Ife is pare for that which is to come. Let All men have Charity and Jove their neighbors As whereupon the grand Patri Arch armed with the Tail of the great Grandfather s authority arose and impress ively adjourned the meeting.1 i ejaculated mrs. Jenks and this is joining the Odd but re Pember to keep nil i have told Yon a profound said Jenks with a half smothered chuckle As Feo buried Bis head in the bed clothes to keep from laugh ing outright. A Gap a Man known As old Jim who had been n Leader in outrages upon Union men in Tennessee was recently arrested near Kas bribe. The sheriff stepped aside to give souse Persona an of Ort nity to look Al be outlaw several bullets through old Jim so with s at the Funion Safe convention z Atoff. It 186fi. Com Rimos ire Tarn Yon my sincere thanks for the Honor conferred in we crag me to preside Ever the preliminary proceedings of your convection. I am aware of the act that the position is one of difficulty and requires the do Barge of arduous duties i earnestly solicit the to Operti Tion of every Delegate in my Efi bits to preserve order promote Harmony Aad hasten the business of the on Ray own part i pledge Yon that i will Endeavor to discharge the duties of the Posi Tion to the utmost of my ability with impartiality and Fidelity. I sincerely Hope that the deliberation of this body May be harmonious and All the results of our action entirely satisfactory to the people whom we repr3sent. I regard he convention just being organized As one of no Ordinary interest. The position of Pennsylvania in the Union As Well As her past history entitles and will command for a potential voice in the re construction of our government. At All hazards and at every sacrifice of everything save Prince be must the action of this convention in the end be unanimous. The whole army of Loyal voters who in 1864, rallied around the Standard of Abraham Lincoln nod proclaimed to the world that the Union should be preserved and the rebellion sup ttv1 Cirer Arafat again be shall be hoisted Here to Oay the military Power of the rebellion has been crushed. Our Brave and heroic offi cers soldiers and sailors have Well performed their part before the magnitude of their achievements the wars of former times and the to Lulea of other nations sink into comparative insignificance. Our nation to Day occupies a prouder position before the world end is More feared by the aristocracies of Europe then Ever before. The Glo Ries As Weh As the toys of our. Surviving he roes both officers and soldiers the memories of the thousands slain and starved in defence of our cause the tens of thousands of widows and orphans Tunde such by the War and the millions willingly incurred by a Loyal people to preserve the of the Ratoiu All demand that the fruits of the Grent Victory of human Freedom shall not be frittered by the mistakes of politicians. Every own of us Toust be prepared. To yield upon lira Alia r of a patriotism All his personal preferences and individual wishes for the common Good. There May be and there no doubt some questions about which we May reasonably and safely differ. Upon a the great vital issues of the Day All truly Loyal men must and will agree. During the four years of fearful and bloody War just closed the. Rebellion increased and strengthened and was greatly protracted by reason of Northern sympathy. Now that it is Over these men in Uro North have grown bolder and More defiant by reason of the Aid and Comfort which they expect to receive in turn from those lately in arms a Gniot the government True the rebellion is Over the fighting Baa ceased but the War is not ended the spirit of rebellion still lives and it is to Day Active insolent and defiant. Tea great object of the rebellion waa the death of the Republic dismemberment of the nation object has not been abandoned. Those who undertook it failed to accomplish their purpose by a Force of arms. They now strive to reach the same end by Means of Mann beat and appeals to the prejudices of the people at the ballot bos. This May appear to be a judgment i would that i Coald believe otherwise. But the spirit Ebat for thirty Yean and More has distracted oar people Turbed the peace of the nation in a bold attempt to make slavery the ruling Power of the cation and All other interests subservient to up trip which few our wounded and mangled our dead of the Seld of after the Battle was the. Same spirit which a resided Over the prisons of Anderson , Belfe isl and and else Ware a that Abich Proa oiled Wasj not a Taitafe to seize the Throat or Stab tile heart of toe Tia Tod and destroy. If pos sible the Noble old Republic of Oor utterly ?egardleb8 of tha rain and woe which May of both. Already theas men in lbs sooth toe organizing to Send representatives 6? their bind to Congress. Their friends in the North Ere rallying for the same promo allow them to succeed in scheme and a Deaibe rebel debt Wib assumed dam Ages paid to rebels for in Arias suffered by War nod pens Fona granted to rebel wounded and rebel widow. Under this Load it is old ship of state will soon go Down and the nation perish. Should this fail our whole National debt would next be repudiated and the country ruined. Shall All this be much of a Correct answer to this question May depend upon your action to Day. Every Dollar of debt municipal. State and National contracted for the suppression of the rebellion must and shall be paid at All hazards. Sot one cent of rebel debt damages or pen Sions shall Ever be assumed or upon any pretext or for any reason whatever. Oor present Loyal and patriotic president Andrew Johnson Baa submitted to these Ropte a policy which challenges the Admi ration of the world. It will stamp him through All time to come of a Magnani Mous merciful and kind hearted ruler. In is efforts to carry it out he must and will receive our Hearty and zealous co operation of support. But should these people con tempt and present to the the world an exhibition of Folty madness and wickedness unparalleled let us Here pro claim to them and to our chosen ruler that we will one and All stand by him in Seiz ing and holding their own territory by the military Power of the country and teat the grasp of the military Arm shall not be relaxed until they satisfy us by their professions and their practices that they Are ready and i Ding to accept in Good Faith the results of the War. It was of their own seeking end of their own making. They no right to ask the advantages of a trial unless they mean to submit to the ver dict Hie War has not ended until the conquered party has fairly accepted its re sults and the government has not Only a perfect a Gnu right but h is her solemn duly to enforce those results by the to Itury Arm. Our four year s War the most gig Antic in the world s history must not be in vain. Let the late rebels accept in Good Faith the policy of our president and we will gladly Welcome them again a Brothers into the folds of our Union. Let them reject it and we will stand by him and con Gress in compelling them to acknowledge our Triumph and their defeat. Slavery is dead and must and shall be buried. The spirit of slavery must die and be buried with it. The aristocracy of the South which has fostered and upheld slavery and which inaugurated the late terrible civil War must be shorn of its Power. Already it is at work stirring up opposition to the policy of the government and cresting hostility and bitterness among the for two years we carried on the War with out striking at the cause of the War. In deed we rather guarded and protected it at last Abraham Lincoln when he time bad Cone on the memorable first Day of january 1803, struck at slavery. Tha re sult is before us. And yet it still seems As if no lessons Are sufficient to reach the authors of the rebellion. It a fast becoming Manifest that no permanent even with the death of slavery can be secured until the authors and supporters of slavery Are subdued. In the words of our present patriotic president this aristocracy is antagonistic to Iba principles of free demo erotic government and the time has come when this rebellious element of aristocracy must be punished.
