(j, 11. ol A*N VT, Chairman Dem. Co. Com. Jan. 25th, 1861. Who are Responsible ? The legal pettifogger whose services are al ways called into requisition by the ostensible editor of the Abolition organ, whenever that nondescript specimen of humanity gets himself into a quanda-y, publishes one ot his usually long-winded editorials in the last week s issue of that sheet, in reply to a late article of ours proving the so-called "Republican party re sponsible for the present difficulties in the South. The "galled jade winces" under the, lashings of truth and a slowly awakening con- , science. Thejm'serable pettifogger finds that 1 he ar.d his fellow "Republicans" are becoming c iious in the sight of ail honest men and true j patriots, and hence he deems it necessary to. environ and fortify himself and his political j confreres with any quantity of verbiage and ' garbled extracts. He manages to flounder \ through two mortal columns— haded, solid, ° I primer, bnvier, italic —in building up his for- j tification of words. He has an idea that if he ; can only get into his article all the words con tained in Webster's Dictionary, he and Repub- j licanism will both be perfectly safe. Mistaken ; man ! Not all the vocabularies of the language, nor "burnt brandy," nor judicial nominations ! in prospectu , can suffice to save him from po litical death ; and as for "Republicanism," "Neither poppy, nor mandragora Nor all the drowsy syrups of the world " can medicine its tounaers and worshippers "to that 3weet sleep which oncethey owed," when th morning of the seventh ot November brought them ih< ecitaintj of Lincoln s rfrc lion. But for the sake of curiosity let us fol low tbis frightened "Republican" editor in his devious wanderings in search of an excuse for the conduct of his party. His object ir to show that disunion has been meditated by the Southern States for many years past, and that, therefore, the election of Lincoln is not the cause of the present condi t ion of things in those States. I n order to effect this purpose, he quotes "a few excerpts" [see Webster] from a debute in the Legislature of South Carolina in the year ISSO. These "ex cerpts" certainly show that disunion was seri ously spoken ot in South Carolina, in 1850, but they show no more than the history cl the U nited States, for it is a part of our national his tory that in I§so, the Union was in great danger of being dissolved, on account ot the verv same causes which are now operating for its dismemberment. In ISIS, David Wilmot in the lower house ot Congress, offered hia fa mous Proviso, which declared that there should be "no more slavery, or involuntary servitude i xcept for crime," in any of the States to be ad mitted into the Union. In other words, it was the doctrine of "no more Slave States," now so pertinaciously insisted upon by the Republican party. This, of course, applied to all the Ter ritories, organized or unorganized, then belong ing to the United States, and, therefore, vntu ally repealed the Missouri Compromise, which had been theretcforejregarded asi 'finality on the slavery question, both North and South. Nev ertheless, the Wilmot Proviso passed the lower house of Congress, carried through by the anti slavery sentiment of the North. Thus did the people of the North violate their plighted faith, and open up a political agitation which is now about to culminate in the dissolution and de struction of the government. It was because of the violation ot the Alissouri compact, by the representatatives ot the North in Congress, in 1848, and because of the attempt to apply the unconstitutional and unfair principle of the Wilmot Proviso, to the admission of California, that disunion was spoken of in South [Carolina and other Southern States in ISSU. The rea son why the Uoion was then preserved, is fa miliar to every body acquainted with the his tory of that memorable period. Such patriots as Clay, Webster, Wtntluop,an 1 Douglas uni ted to overthrow the doctrine of the Wilmot J Proviso, and when unable, on account of AV * ihern opposition, to extend the Missouri Com promise line to the Pacific, agreed to adopt the present Fugitive Slave Law, and to settle the Territorial question by submitting it to the de cision of the bona fi'ie residents of the Territo ries, who were to form their own domestic in stitutions in their own war, subject only to the Constit ition of fhe United States. By this set tlement the people ot the North and ot the j South, were to have equal rights in the lerri tones—equal t'ghts as to a'l tilings—life, liber- j ty and proper!v. The South was satisfied.— j "Rebellious South Carolina" ceased to ta ! k of ; disunion, and peace and tranquillity once more resumed their sway from one end of the Union to the other. The sentiment of] the North, howi ver, was restless and unap peas-d. Having obtained a deep hold upon the , Whigs of the North through the machinations: of Horace Greelev, W. H. Seward and other j men of that ilk, it soon succeeded in introducing itself into the organization of that party in such a shape as to effect its ruin. When the Amer ican party took the place of the Whig party, the same anti-slavery sentiment} and anti slavery leaders soon worked out its de struction. Upon the rums of the last sud denly arose the sectional ptrtv which the ar.ti slavery leaders were so desirous of formnig and to establish which they had labored to destroy both the National "Whig and American parties. This sectional part v was founded upon the anti slavery sentiment of ttie North, its founders de cla>iog that the organization of the Terrilorie% ot Kansas and Nebraska, though in accordance with Henry Clay's Compromise ot 1850, was an outrage upon that sentiment and a "crime against freedom." Hence. "Republicanism" is but the development of that anti-slavery-ism winch since 1848, has kept up a continual agi tation ot the question of's'aveiv. Hence "Re publicanism" is responsible for the present dif ficulties in the South,"because when the South was satisfied with compromises to which the North had assented, "Republicanism" either by its founders, or in its own proper organization, repudiated such Compromises. But not only has "Republicanism" violated sofoitit: and sa cred compiomises, not only has it brought the North to an attiLude of sectional political hostil ity to the South, but under the manoeuvring of some of its leaders it has pased laws nullifying the Fugitive Slave Act and legalizing the res ' cue of the slave from recapture by the master ; ;it has sent ruffians and fiendi in human shape j to Kansas to despoil Southern emigrant? of their ! property and to shoot them down in their I tracks, or lynch them upon the nearest tree ; it : has connived at the invasion of "Virginia by an j armed band of anti-slavery marauders, and ma 'ny of its presses and public- speakers have at tempted to sustain and vindicate that invasion : if has scattered inflammatory publications, Hel j per Books and Uncle Tom's Cabins, broadcast i among the people, exciting their passions and arousing their prejudices ; it has sent its emis- | saries among the slaves, stirring them up to ; mutiny, insurrection and murder, and lighting j up the plantations of the South, vvith the ffanms }of burning cotton-gins and consuming farm houses : and yet, we are told that "Republi canism" is not responsible torihe revolution in the South ! Our pettifogger has the impndejiceand effron tery to quote Gen. Jackson. We have only to say on this point, that had Gen. Jackson been President from IS4S till 1852, there would be no "KepuDiican parry so oay. lne n a i the men who founded and now control that par ty, would be the rankest stench in the nostrils ot the present generation. Jackson would ; have hung upas a traitor every man that would | have dared to oppose the execution of the Fu ! gitive Siave Law, or in any manner to disobey the Constitution. As for quotations from the i speeches of Toombs, Stephens and Badger, those speeches were all made prior to the adoption j of Henry Clay's compromise of ISSO, by which a new phase was put upon the question of sla j very in the Territories. By that Compromise, j the people of the several states of the Union ; w ' lo ' ,a d emigrated to California, with their property, whether negroes, or other, were to meet upon a perfect equality and settle, in their ! own way, the domestic institutions of the em -1 j bryo state. Therefore, the Compromise meas ures of ISSO, recognized the equality of Nor | thern and Southern citizens, with respect to : persons and propeity, in thp common Territory ; of the Union, and it is for thi principle, over- I thrown by "Republicanism" in the North, and for their own safety and security in their own States and by their own firesides, threatened and invaded bv Northern outlaws* that the Sou thern people have plunged into revolution.— \ es. "Republicanism" is responsible, and will be held answerable, not only by the people, but by the gieat Judge, who delighteth in 'peace and brotherly love, and whose all-seeing eye note* even the sparrow that is wantonly strick en to the giound. Words of Condolence. It seems that Governor Curtin has made all his appointments, and by some strange over sight has forgottpr. to give an office to cur [ar ticular friend and fellow townsman, Hon. Fr. Jordan. Singular shortsightedness,this, on the part of Governor Curtin ! Mr. Jordan certainly deserves an office at the hands of the Governor, j and as fie but rarely asks foi office, and ba> but rarely succeeded in getting it w hen he did ask, it is surely a shame itiat Curtin overlooke lTiim. By the way our friend, (Geo. R. Barndollar, was | announced as an applicant for one of the Flour j Inspectorships. When is George lobe install ed in office ? How and When ? "Mr. Russell, Chairman," calls "a mass mee ting of the Republican party of Bedford |coun ty." How and wfmn was Mr. Russell appoin ted "( hair-man" <-f a ' Republican" c<> unty committee, and how and when was he en-' powered to . sink the il People'B Party" into nonentity, or to deliver it over, wholesale, to Black Republicanism ? Let us know, please. !LP*Kansas ha* been admitted into the Union. Thus far Black Republicanism h3j Liought one State into and c*s ven six out of the Union, Local and Miscellaneous. . .. .Court begins next Monday. ....Incompatible—sunshine and sleighing. This fact has been fully exemplified within the last few days. . .. .ACCIDENT. —On Saturday morning last, a- a troop of boys were engaged in skating and sii ding down the bill in front of our office, a littie sled occupied by one of the boys, struck a young lad, a son of Kev. Mr. Heckerman, of this place, and threw him backwards upon his head, injufing him so teveiely that his life was for some days HespatT ied of. We are happy to learn, however, that he is now almost out of danger. 'J' his accident shouid teach boys to be more careful when engaged in sliding, or skating", and as for making the princi pal Ureet oi the town the scene of such dangerous sport, we think it is altogether wrong and should jbe prohibited by the Borough authorities. Boys | must have play, but their playground should be ; elsewhere than on the public siredt. .... Don't forget the Democratic !on Monday evening next. Let it be a grand rally of the conservative men of the county. Let all who are in favor cf peace and justice te the Sjouth, come forward and take their stand boldly and with a determined front. . .. .The Peace Conference met at Washing ton on Monday, last. The Convenes aits wit!) closed doois, and nothing of importance has trans pired in regard to iis sessions. ' ....BURGLARY.—On WEDNESDAY night last, the Catholic Church in this place, was broken into by some unknown person and is supposed to have been robbed of a number of valuables, plate, &c., tkc. At the suma time a of artie'es were also taken from the office of the Bedford Ho tel. .... A number of our Democratic exchanges h,ve recently come to us in an enlarged and im proved form. The Huntingdon Globe, Doylestown Democrat, Gettysburg Compiler and Chambersburg Times, all good papers, are among the number to which we allude. .... Do you want good seed potatoes ? If ' so, call on Hartley, at his Hardware Store, and you will be accommodated with a first rate article at moderate prices. Hartley's Prince Alberts are ex cellent esculents, as we can abundantly testify. Democratic Stale Convention! THE DEMOCRATIC STATE EXECUTIVE COMMIT TEE ot Pennsylvania, at a meeting held in the city of Harrisburg, on the 30th ultimo, unani mously resolved to elicit the views of the ; Democracy ot the "old Keystone" in reference |to the present terrible cnsis ol our national a flairs. The failure of the Republican party to meet, in a proper spirit ot concession and compromise, the overtures made for the adjustment of our National difficulties, renders it necessary that the united Democracy of this Commonwealth should take prompt, decided, and energetic ac tion in the premises. We are in the midst of a revolution brought about by the teachings of an Anti-Constitution al pa'ty,a party sectional in its aims and sec tional in its principles. Six of our sisters sovereign States have already withdrawn from the Federal Union, and others threaten speedi ly to follow. The Democratic party, ever u 'thful to the Constitution and the .Ltc seriously deprecates this deplorable condition of our common and beloved country. The peri! ! now impending is the natural r-sult ola de | parture tram the true Constitutional doctrines t steadfastly maintained bv the Democratic organization for the past sixty years, and can only be removed by the re-establishment of those ancient and time-honored principles. It is not necessary to recall the glories of the past —it is only necessary to be reminded ol the dangers of the present. Whatever the future may have in store for the American people whether peace shall continue within our bor ders, or our land be rent with fraternal strife it .tow becomes the solemn and imperative duty of the Democratic party, the only true con servator of the Union, the Constitution, and "the equality of the States," to give a full ex pression of opinion upon the dangers which threaten constitutional liberty and menace Hie rights of all the States of this Confederacy. Therefore, in accordance with the unani mous recommendation of the Democratic State Executive Committee, the Democracy of Penn sylvania are earnestly invited to send three delegates for each Senator, and three delegates for each Representative, to be chosen in such manner and at such times as may be deemed proper, to meet in general State Convention at Harrisburg, at three o'clock, p. m., on Thurs day, the 2ist day of February, A. D. 1861. to take into consideration the present distrac ted and divided state ol the country, "to restrain threatened sectional violence, and to aid in re constructing the federative system on a basis of perpetuity." By order of the Committee. WILLIAM 11. WELSH, Chairman. HARRteßUfic, February I, 1861. Meeting of the Democratic Stale Com mittee. The Democratic State Committee met in the Sup-feme Court Room, at Harrisburg, at 3 o'- clock P. M., on Wednesday, the 30th ult Forty four members were present. After some discussion the following preamble and lesolu tions were unanimously adopted ; WHEREAS, The dismemberment of the Pi nion by the withdrawal of the slave-holding Slates now in rapid progress, has beenoccasioii ed by a departure from the Democratic construc tion ol the Constitution of the United States, which holds "Uie equality of the Stailes of the Confederacy." in respect to persons and prop erty, to he a fundamental principle of such Con stitution, and by a contemplated abandonment of the conservative Democratic policy which has, for sixty years past, sacredly guarded "the rights of the States," and devetbped the resour ces ami capacities of the people bv Democratic legislation ; thus guiding the whole country to an eminence ol prosperity and renown : And Whereas , A speedy recognition of the i patriotic counsels and conservative policy ol the I Democratic party in the Administration of the | Federal Government, by the people ot Peunsvl- j vania and ofthe other nou-slavefiolding States, i is the only and sure mean 9 ot effecting a per manent re-const ruction ot a dissolving Conled- j eracy : And Whereas, The organization cf the Dem- i ocratic parly of Pennsylvania, hitherto "the Keystone of the Federal Arch," now harmoni ous, potent and animated by a love of country, and of the true principles ot the Constitution, is entirely competent, it called into immediate action, to restrain threatened sectional violence and to materially aid in reconstructing the fed erative system on a basis ol perpetuity ; there lore, Resolved, That a Democratic State Conven tion, to consist of three delegates from each Sen atorial and Representative district, thi ee hun dred and ninety-nine in ail, be held in the city ot Harrisburg, on Thursday, the 21st Jay ol February next, at 3 o'clock, afternion. Resolved, That the several districts are here by earnestly invited to take, in the manner most convenient and agreeable to them, prompt and efficient measures to insure a lull, fair and able representation. Resolved, Tjpt the Chairman ot this Com mittee issue, immediately, a copy oi these res olutions to the Chairman of each County Com mitteee, each absent member of this Committee, and such other Democrats as may !>e most con veniently and promptly reached ; and that to aid in and facilitate tins matter, each member of this Committee furnish the Chairman with the names and addresses of Democrats in his Distuct. The Committee then adjourned. A Good Proposition. Hon William Montgomery, of this State, has proposed a plan for the settlement ofthe South ern difficulties, whicji we think, it carried out, woujd prove erninen'ly succe-sful. It is con tained and explained in the following remarks made by Mr. Montgomery on laying it before Congress : Mr. Speaker, I have a priposal to make to this House. I think that every impartial ob server, who has witnessed our deliberations since the commencement ol the session, will admit there is nothing like unity ol sentiment nor concurrence of opinion among us. The votes had on the various propositions ol compro mise piesented to us from time to time, abun dantly prove that there is not the slightnst probability that a constitutional mcjority can be obtained for any proposition wiil restore harmo ny and peace to our distracted country. Day after day is spent in Hie delivery of speeches, many ol which only tend to increase out trou bles, and add fuel to the llame of public discord. While we are engaged in this profitless con troversy —for I doubt whether any speech tf.at has been mad-', or that will be made, will I change the opinion or vote ot a singie —State alter State is seceding from this Union, and delegation after delegation is bidding us farewell, and vacating the seats around us.— While these things are being dene, what are we doing to avert this dreadlul calamity ! Re volution is sweeping 'over the land. We can feel the temple of our country's liberty tremble, yet we stand here idle. I think it is obvious to every man of us tfiat we are more controlled by political orejudice and preconceived opinions, than by a proper sense of our fearful lesponsibiltty. In devotion to our party we seem to forget that we have a country. We serve the Democratic and Re publican organizations, and forget that we have a Union anu a L>onsiiiuiiuu u. j...;i lion. While we stand here idle, the people weep, and the nations look upon us with scorn and contempt. I canr.ot pick up a paper in which our tardy action is not denounced as treason to the cause ot human liberty. Con vinced, as I am, that we are not likely to con centrate on any reasonable proposition now he fore us a constitutional majority, and beating in mind that riot one of us was elected in view of the adjustment of these unforeseen troubles, and impressed with the impoDance of compro mise, and believing that it is our duty to reUr this question, which we cannot settle, to the people whom we represent, f propose that every man of us agree to resign his piace here, to take effect on the 21st of February next ; and that we immediately pass a special law to provide for the election of our successors, who 1 shall meet hereon the 22d day of February, l that day consecrated and hallowed bv the birth of the Father of his Country,) and that to these Representatives, fresh from the hands of the people, and bearing the peoples' instructions, the various proposals of compromise now pen- i ding, and hereafter to be made, shall be re- I ferred. In the mean time, between this and i the 22d ol February, we can go on and dis- j patcli tiie public business demanding our atten tion. This is not a party proposition. I make it in good faith, and earnestly ask its considera tion. The man on this floor who knows he has been misrepresenting the wishes of his peo ple need alone fear it. Those who have been I taithful and true to the people, to the Union, and the Constitution, will be indorsed and re elected. The responsibility will then be with the people ; and I know the result will be peace, conciliation, and a return to the Union. VYe cannot agree ; why then shall we stand in the way of the expression of the will of the people? If we are right, our people will sustain us ; if we are wrong, we owe it lo ourselves and them to give them an opportunity to select others in oui stead. Adopt this measure, and you will arrest precipitate action in the South ern States which remain with us. 1 believe, if this measure were adopted, some of those Slates wfiicti have already seceded Would Tend their Representatives back to lend their aid in tins great work of compromise. Even if it were for no other purpose, we shouid consult our people uti the question of the course to be pursued against the seceding States. Before we begin a bloody civil war, let ns consult the people, and hear their voice and carry out their determination. For myself, I have voted uniformly for the consideration of almost every proposition for compromise which , has been offered. I am willing my people j should pass on my acts. I love mv country,) l and I am ready to inake anv sacrifice which I wiil preserve that glorious Union which hr > i made us the greatest and freest nation on the earth. I speak by the indulgence of my coi league, at.d I cannot now elaborate this proposi tion. I submit it for the consideration of the House as a peace-offering which requires no sacrifice of principle from any one. I thank the House for its attention and my colleague for his kind indulgence. Mr. GROW. I ask my colleague whether his successor is not already elected. Mr. MONTGOMERY. Certainly ; and he is a good Union man and a conservative Demo crat. But my ptoposition has nothing in do' with my successor ; mv proposal relates to my own term. Tltr N V. Democratic Slate f (invention. ALLAN Y, I- eb., I.—The Cornmitt ee on Res olutions of the Democratic State Convention have agreed to report to-dav a series entirely free Irom anything of a partisan character ; op posing coercion ; favoring the Crittenden Com promise ; exhorting all men to unite with thein in submitting that compromise to the vote ol tlm people of the State ; exhorting the seceding States to retrain troin any acts ot aggression, or any course caicnlated to plunge the nation in to civil war ; and the non-seceding Slave S'ates to use their influence with their brefhren ol the South to that end. Tim Convention re-assembled at noon to-dav. Speeches were delivered by Lyman Trcinain and James S. I haver against coercion and civ il war. The Committee on Resolutions made a re port in addition to the foregoing summary; the resolutions declare that it is a monstrous doc trine to refuse to settle controversies with our own people with compromises ; at.d they favor t be adoption ot the policy that will give satis faction to the Bolder £>latos, and favor the ap pointment of a committee to (Demoralize the Le gislature, urging the submission of the Ci Uteri deii Compromise to the vote of the electors of the State, at the earliest practicable dav. i hey urge Congress to provide at an early day for constitutional amendments, or in the event of the failure of Congress, to tafce action, they urge the Legislature to take the initiative steps for summoning a general convention to propose amendments to the Constitution of the Lnited States. They favor a response to the Virginia resolutions for a conference at Wash ington, and name as commissioners, from this State, H >n. Millard Fillmore, Addison Gardner, Creene C. Bronson, Errstus Corning. Horatio Sey more, Ama-a .1. Barker, Charles O'Connor • and Samuel J. Colden. I he resolutions strenuously oppose civil war, and inge the seceding and non-seceding States to j .in hands in staying the progress of d'ssolu t i on. i ALBANY, Feb. I.—Evening.—The Tamma ny Hall delegation returned to the Convention. A resolution was adopted to print f0,000 copies of the proceedings of the Convention, j Also, a resolution tendering the thanks of the i Democracy of New York to Senator Crittenden | and Cameron for the noble stand they |)3ve ta j ken i .r the Union, rising above party consider -1 at ions. \ Committee was appointed, whose duty it j shall be to correspond with the prominent Dem ocrats of other States, on the subject of a Gen , 'Mai Convention to propose amendments to the i Constitution of thp United States. A committee was also appointed to present the resolutions of the Convention to Congress and to the State Legislature. The Convention then adjourned sine die, but subject to the call ot the President.)
