CHAMBERSBURG, Oct. 22, 1868
To the Voters of Franklin County:
We congratulate you upon the splendid result of the late election. You have restored our County to its proper position, and shown our opponents that its voters have no sympathy with disloyalty, and that "Green Spot," so often trodden by rebel raiders and incendiaries, is faithful to the party which wrested their arms from the hands of traitors and preserved the integrity and honor of the Republic.
The friends of Seymour and Blair, who shamelessly accepted their principles and men from audacious leaders of the rebellion, wrought with characteristic energy and corruption to carry their ticket, and were buoyant with assured success. They have exhausted themselves in their efforts and now see the hopelessness of their cause.
Everywhere we behold the harbingers of our triumph in November. We have driven the enemy all along the line, from Maine to Nebraska. The loyal people, who have repeatedly spoken with emphasis against the common foe at the ballot box, "now feel like ending the matter," and winning a lasting peace by the final overthrow of the disturbers of the national tranquility. We exhort you to do your part in the good work, Fall in and dive forward! Do not pause to divide the spoils or wrangle over past differences, but push on solidly until the work is done. Let every voter be at the polls. Swell the majority to its fullest reach. Do not trust to the supineness and dismay of our adversaries. If they have a hope of any kind, it is that we may think the field won, and [unclear] our vigilance. Disappoint such expectations. Labor as earnestly as though there were a doubt. We do not appeal to you to achieve a partisan victory; the peace, good feeling and honor of your country are at stake.
We point our Democratic fellow-citizens to the unmistakable will of the American people, as expressed in the recent elections, and we ask them to respect and obey that will. We conjure them to remember how implicitly they put their trust in the great leader of our armies, throughout the long and dark hours of the rebellion, and how gloriously he justified their trust; and believe that party prejudice has not destroyed their assurance, that as he has never yet failed us, that he never will fail us; and we beseech them to join us in November next, in doing honor to him who is "first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen."
S. F. GREENAWALT
Chairman Republican County com.
(Column 01)Summary: This article picks apart several statements from a recent address to conservative voters by the Democratic National Convention.
Full Text of Article:Meetings
The Democratic National Committee have issued an address to the conservative voters of the United States. It was promulgated after the result of the October election had been clearly ascertained, and strange to say, or perhaps naturally enough in view of the history of the party, it failed to say one word in relation to it. No doubt Mr. Belmont could see little enough, from his lookout in New York, to bring comfort to the Democratic masses if he directed their attention to the candidates whom the leaders had imposed upon them, and, we fear, still less to encourage the candidates themselves by a straitforward, candid statement of the feelings of the masses toward them. On the whole, then, he did the only thing that was left him to do, assuming that an address had to be issued. He said nothing, or as nearly nothing as it was possible. And with one or two exceptions what he failed to say is the most significant circumstances of the whole.
After devoting one-half of the address to the most glittering nothings he comes a little nearer home in the following paragraph:
Fellow Democrats, you are fighting for a good and righteous cause. You have for your leader a tried statesman; a patriot who stood by the Union in its darkest hour; a man equally beloved for the purity of his private character as honored for his public virtues.
This evidently refers to one of the candidates, either Seymour or Blair, but which one the reader is unable to discern. A statesman is a man eminent for political abilities; a tried statesman, one who has had the opportunity, and whose political ability has stood the test of trial. This cannot mean Seymour, for he has never participated in national affairs at all. He has not been tried in statesmanship, and if his declarations should be allowed to make up one judgment in the matter, they would work against him. For example, we recollect two of his most famous ones. At the beginning of the rebellion he said that "successful coercion by the government was no less revolutionary than successful secession;" and about the same time, that "the Montgomery constitution was better than the constitution of the United States, and the free States ought to adopt it." A compliance with the first sentiment would have deprived us of all government, and the adoption of the second would have forever fastened slavery upon the free States as well as the slave States. These, then, can hardly be taken as the sentiments of a statesman.
If the first clause of this statement is untrue, is the second worthy of more credit? "A patriot who stood by the Union in its darkest hour." The above declarations we have already shown to be unstatesmanlike, are they not as well unpatriotic and disloyal? A patriot is one who loves his country, and zealously supports and defends it and its interests. But Horatio Seymour did not defend his country and its interests. On the contrary, he said that his government has no right to put down an unholy rebellion, and expressed his preference for the rebel constitution. We all know that further on in the war he lent aid and comfort to the rebellion by encouraging disloyal men to resist the draft when he was Governor of the State of New York, and caused thereby, in addition to strengthening the enemy, the sacrifice of hundreds of innocent lives, and the destruction of much valuable property. It is not true, then, that he is "a patriot who stood by his country in its darkest hour."
And lastly he is "a man equally beloved for the purity of his private character as honored for his public virtues." If he is honored for his public virtues only in the degree which, as we have already shown, he deserves, we have no reason to fear that the respect for his private character will be such as to spoil him with vanity. But on this subject we forbear.
Perhaps, however, as Mr. August Belmont evidently has turned the cold shoulder to one of the Democratic candidates, and cannot by his description mean Mr. Seymour, he may have intended to describe Frank Blair in these terms. Frank managed to spend some years in Congress as a Radical Representative from Missouri, mainly in advocating the principles which the Republican party support today. At the close of the war he allied himself to the rebel party and since then has not been surpassed in denunciation of his principles even by Wade Hampton and Butcher Forrest. Indeed, in the matter wherein he outstripped them, the Broadhead letter, he so won the hearts of the rebels, both North and South, that they vociferously nominated him for the Vice Presidency. Does he fill the measure of a statesman? Assuredly not.
But this, they say, must certainly mean Blair, "a patriot who stood by the Union in its darkest hour." Whether a patriot or not so he did, and he has repented it in sackcloth and ashes ever since, if one may judge from his almost infernal villainy and his fondness for traitors. But a patriot loves his country and zealously supports and defends its interests. Mr. Blair is a dangerous demagogue in favor of revolution and the overthrow of the constitution and the restoration of rebels to power. Such a man cannot be a patriot. It cannot mean Frank Blair.
How does the last clause fit "one of the Blairs" moral character. "A man equally beloved for the purity of his private character as honored for his public virtues."
If, as the departed Artemus Ward used to say, and above is a "goak," it means Blair exactly, if not it don't. We rather think it don't. But if not why is he ignored in the address? Is he not the Democratic candidate for the Vice Presidency? Did they not nominate him unanimously amid cheers and rebel yells? Did not that pink of chivalry, Wade Hampton, second his nomination in gushing terms? and did not the courtly and refined Forrest stop picking his teeth with a bowie knife while he made a congratulatory speech? Then why is Blair made the raw head and bloody bones of the party? Why is he treated thusly? Alas, Mr. Blair, your Broadhead letter was a boomerang, more fatal to yourself in your inexperienced hands than to your enemies. It both nominated you and defeated you. The October elections didn't kill you, they only gave notice of your demise. Mr. Belmont simply accepted notice and therefore in his address he didn't notice you. We ask our readers isn't what this address fails to say very significant?
But it contains one more idea, and only one. After arraigning the Republican Congress for their work of the past three years, it says:
Against these men and all their despotic purposes, which Gen. Grant would be as powerless to hinder as he whom they elected four years ago has been: against these men, their crimes in the past, their nefarious designs in the future, you are soon to make one final and determined onslaught.
We may be very stupid, but we fail utterly to see what Horatio Seymour, in the Presidential chair, would be able to hinder against a Republican House and Senate, if, as the address says, even Gen. Grant would be powerless to do so. If it were possible to elect Seymour, the only hope of the loyal people against the overthrow of their liberties would be in the loyal Congress, which is already assured. With such a Congress Seymour would have neither power nor influence, while the exalted patriotism, ability and honesty of Gen. Grant would make his influence almost unlimited with the same body. On the showing of the address itself, it would be worse than folly to elect Horatio Seymour to the Presidency, and with this and its other silly capers we leave it.
(Column 02)Summary: This article reports a recent impromptu meeting of Republicans in Mercersburg. It lists speakers and recounts a parade.
Full Text of Article:[No Title]
An impromptu meeting held in Mercersburg, on Saturday evening, by the Republicans, was addressed by Capt. McMahon, of New York, and Lieut. Wilson, of Iowa. The meeting was large and enthusiastic, the speeches eloquent and impressive. Capt. M'Mahon is an Irishman who lost a leg in the service of his adopted country, and has all the fervor and enthusiasm of his people. Lieut. Wilson, now of Iowa, was born in Mercersburg, from which his father removed when he was a boy. Many of the old residents of the place remembered him, and gave him a hearty welcome. Mercersburg will make good the majority she gave Lincoln on next Tuesday.
The grand parade of the citizens of Waynesboro, on Saturday night, showed that they have not been lulled into indifference by the result of the late elections. The procession was very large, and might have been twice as large if they could have secured lamps. An eloquent address was delivered by J. Matthews, Esq., of Hagerstown, who argued ably and at considerable length the issues of the day. Two bands were in attendance, and added to the pleasures of the evening.
(Column 03)Summary: The paper reports that the Republican party is unified and strong, while the Democratic party is divided and weak.
Full Text of Article:[No Title]
If a large and respectable portion of the Republican party were holding meetings in favor of Seymour and Blair; if many of the best Republican journals were clamoring for the withdrawal of their candidates; if their candidates for the Presidency were daily making speeches begging the people to elect him President, it would not be putting too fine a point on it to say that in such a muddle they were doomed to humiliating defeat.
Fortunately such is not the condition of the Republican party. Its members are united, harmonious, buoyant and confident, inspired by the late victories and only waiting for the 3rd of November to close out the Copperhead party along with the political campaign. Its journals press on the column vigorously, its loyal masses organize solidly and work earnestly for the election of their standard-bearers and the triumph of their principles. Its candidate, the unanimous choice of the loyal people, calmly and serenely awaits their verdict at the polls, well satisfied that the best interests of the country are safe in their hands.
On the contrary it is literally and truly the condition of the Democracy. Within a week of the election they find the party disheartened and discouraged with its candidates, and the candidates afraid of each other. In New York the extraordinary spectacle of Democrats holding Grant meetings is seen. Large bodies of the best and the most influential men of that party representing much of its wealth, ability and patriotism, meet and urge upon the people the election of Grant as the only hope of the country. The World, the organ of the Tammany ring, demands the withdrawal of the candidates, and it is echoed throughout the whole country. Blair, the candidate for the Vice Presidency, is openly repudiated, and the hopeless condition of the party since the October elections is cruelly charged to him. Never was anything more unfair than this. He has not deceived them in any particular, and if the people had declared in favor of the revolutionary doctrines adopted in the New York Convention, no man would be so warmly supported by them as this same Frank Blair. As it has turned out, however, Blair is not the man they want. Anybody else would suit them better. But they can't get rid of him. He won't be suppressed. They were so highly delighted with the Broadhead letter, and commended it so warmly, that he has been traveling through the country giving them doses of the same kind of medicine ever since the convention. Though they are nauseated and sick, and beg him for mercy's sake to abstain, he still persists in administering it.
In despair Seymour is driven from his retreat, is forced to forgo his bucolic delights, and the contemplation of his beloved watermelons, and plunge himself into the whelming tide of politics, if perchance he may yet rescue the Democratic party from the blunders into which Blair and the New York convention have carried it. With ill concealed reluctance he betakes himself to the hopeless task, beckoned on by the bloody hand of the master spirit of treason at Washington. He goes to undo what Blair has done, to put in a mild protest against Blair's revolutionary letter and speeches. It is too late. Seymour's milk and water speeches can't explain away the force of these, nor the platform. They have already been explained too often by Wade Hampton, and Vance and Wise and Forrest, and are fully understood both North and South. The October elections prove that in the one, and the Camilla and Louisiana slaughters in the other. They mean virtual reenslavement of the blacks, and the restoration of the rebels to power.
In the meantime the people have determined to settle these vexed questions in their own way. They will elect Grant and have peace. The White House will soon be delivered of the chief instigator of murder and treason. Grant will take his place, murder and rebellion will be at an end, the laws will be respected and we will have Peace.
(Column 03)Summary: The author argues against a claim by the Valley Spirit that the recent Republican victories will make the Republicans overconfident and thus hurt them.
Full Text of Article:[No Title]
The Radicals will rely to a great extent upon the effect of their late victory and trust to it to win the next. --Spirit.
Is this so? Is it not rather the effect of the late victory to inspire us with determination and enthusiasm to make the next more glorious and decisive than the last? That is either the effect of a victory or of a defeat. If of a victory, then we will not trust to the past to do the work of the future, but will use it solely, as it is, as a real auxiliary to our former strength in fighting the next great battle. If of a defeat, why are the copperheads so cast down and discouraged? To be logical they should be jubilant and declare that their late crushing defeat was but a necessary incident to their crowning victory on the 3d of November next. This is nonsense, and the unhappy Spirit knows it full well. We appreciate its condition fully. Overwhelmed in the last fight, its squadrons broken, even its leaders fearfully demoralized, with no possible hope of concentrating their shattered divisions, and closing up the breaches, it nervously counts the brief days and hours which remain before its final dissolution, and yet must keep up the semblance of hope.
Hence the words of our text.
No, the Spirit knows that the Republican party does not rely upon the effect of its late victory to win its next battle, but to the eternal principles of justice, right and liberty, which have inspired it in all its battles against oppression, wrong and slavery, and regards the late victory only as the last pledge of the people that they are still true to these cardinal principles. Loyal citizens of Franklin county, it is for you to prove the short-sighted Spirit a false prophet in the next, as you did in the last election.
(Column 04)Summary: The paper gloats that the Valley Spirit "seems to be wholly upset since the Democratic defeat." They chastise the Democratic paper for continuing to attack John Cessna in what appears to be "the tail end of the slimy serpent and this its last wriggle." The Repository also asserts that Cessna lost Washington township only because of the defection of Republicans who supported Weistling. The Spirit had mistakenly taken it as proof that Kimmell had defeated Cessna in their only debate, held in the vicinity of Waynesboro and Washington.[No Title]
(Column 04)Summary: This warning tells readers to beware of lies from the Democratic party leading up to the election.
Full Text of Article:[No Title]
We warn our voters to look out for lies and bulletins from the Democracy on the eve of the election. "A Sufferer" may undertake to prove to you again that because the rebels burned Chambersburg you should vote to put the rebels into power. That was a bold trick, but desperate circumstances make bad men and cowards very bold. We would not be surprised if they went a step farther now, and told you that because they murdered your fathers and brothers and sons, you should vote for their candidates on next Tuesday.
Remember, their lies do not change their revolutionary platform, nor convert Blair into a loyal man. The former is the work of the Southern rebels and the later their friend and confederate. They do not make the man who declared coercion of rebels no less revolutionary than secession, the man who called the draft rioters and asylum burners his friends, a loyal man. Blair is just as bad and as dangerous as he represented himself to be in his Broadhead letter, and Seymour is just as time serving and as cowardly and as treasonable as he was during the war, when he opposed it with all the courage he could muster. Grant is the only man whom the people are voting for, the other is a mere demagogue and traitor.
(Column 04)Summary: The paper reports that no new Union meetings will be held in preparation for the presidential election. Local Republicans believe that the meetings held before the state elections succeeded in arousing the people and stressing the importance of the upcoming vote. The editors urge Republicans to work individually to ensure a large turnout in November and a large victory for Grant. "Let every man go to work at once, and the victory will be so signal that treason and its sympathisers will bow submissive to the laws and the support of the Government."[No Title]
(Column 04)Summary: The editors assert that the Democrats cannot win in November, even if they "lie and cheat and buy votes," and "make secret combinations and slander good men and falsify returns" as they did in October.[No Title]
(Column 05)Summary: The paper asserts that the people of the United States have a unique opportunity to show appreciation for "their country's deliverer" by voting for Grant. "Who fails to vote for General Grant, or who votes against him, does an act which would be deemed incompatible with either patriotism or national pride by every candid foreigner."[No Title]
(Column 05)Summary: The paper asserts that Democrats gave the nation its immense debt and "burdensome taxes" by hatching the "demon of treason." The editors charge that Democrats instigated the "bloody war" and remained "the last hope of our country's foes." The people, however, have decided that they shall not be given power, that "its treachery shall not be consummated," and that the government "shall not be betrayed into the power of traitors."[No Title]
(Column 05)Summary: The paper reports that many Republican voters did not go to the polls in October and that the county was "saved" by a bare majority of 43. The editors urge a higher turnout in the presidential contest.[No Title]
(Column 05)Summary: The paper predicts that Franklin County can give Grant and Colfax a 200-vote majority. The editors urge everyone to do what they can to make it a reality.Pennsylvania--Official
(Column 07)Summary: The paper prints the official election returns from Pennsylvania. In the election for Auditor General, Franklin gave the Republican Hartranft 4,321 votes to the Democrat Boyle's 4,278. Hartranft won the state by a majority of 9,667 votes. In the election for Surveyor General, Franklin gave 4,319 votes to the Republican Campbell and 4,277 to the Democrat Ent. Campbell won the state with a 9,179-vote majority.To the Soldiers and Sailors of Pennsylvania

HEADQUARTERS SOLDIERS AND SAILORS
STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE.
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 16, 1868.
COMRADES: You have turned the flank of your old enemy, and he is in full retreat; but you must not pause for an instance in your pursuit. Follow him up and press him upon all sides, until he is politically annihilated, and Forrest and Wade Hampton have surrendered in the last ditch. By the wayside you will find many heretofore misguided men, who will gladly join your victorious column. To all such you should extend the hand of welcome, and forget the past.
Be not blinded by the declaration that Opposition have given up the fight. Place no reliance in rumors of a change of candidates. These things are simply weak inventions of the enemy, intended to induce you to halt in your forward movement. Keep up your organizations of "Boys in Blue." Let them, in fact, be permanent institutions in this generation. Let them continue, glorious monuments of a noble fight, for which your children's children shall bless you.
Let your efforts be solely devoted to increasing the vote of last Tuesday, and by this means demonstrated how overwhelming would have been your triumph had the gang of rebel vagabonds who invaded the city of Philadelphia been required by their allies at their own homes.
By order of the committee.
CHARLES H. T. COLLIS, Chairman.

There was a large and enthusiastic meeting of the "Boys in Blue," in their headquarters, on Monday evening last. Capt. M'Mahon, of the 20th N.Y. Militia, who lost a limb in defence of his country at Gettysburg, delivered an able and eloquent address. He stood within those walls a living monument of treason's cruelty, and made an irresistable appeal for the cause for which he had so gallantly fought. His speech was full of sound reasoning and did great good. P. Hamman, Esq., followed with a few short remarks. The meeting adjourned after the Squire had finished. Some of the "Boys," however, discovered that our next Congressman, Hon. John Cessna, was in the office of I. H. M'Cauley, Esq. No sooner was this made known, than Mr. Cessna was called out and given to understand that he must make a speech. He complied with the request of his friends, who returned to the Hall. In a few minutes the room was filled to overflowing by those who desired to hear him. Mr. Cessna was greeted with frequent rounds of applause, and when he had concluded every man present felt that his district would be represented in the next Congress by an able and efficient Representative, who would reflect credit on his constituents.
