To the Deifiocr 'ry of Pennsylvania :
Tiie sturdy Democracy of Maine have
covered themselves with glory.
In this very citadel of Radicalism
they nave demonstrated that you are
upon tlie eve of a magnificent victory.
The two parties were last arrayed at
the polls upon national issues in 18(16.
Maine then polled a vote nearly equal
to her vote of 1884, while Pennsylvnia
polled her largest vote.
In 1-.KI Radicalism received in Maine
(10,(107 votes. In IsGB it receives, as
they themselves estimate, 75,002 votes.
This is an increase of 8 per cent, upon
the vote of 180(1.
In 180(1 Democracy there received
41,P1T votes, and in 18(18 it receives 55,-
7 'lb votes. Thi.- is an increase of 3d per
cent, upon the vote of LBotl.
In IMIO | adiealism received in Penn
sylvania 307,271 votes, and Democra
cy received 290,090 votes.
Apply the test of Maine to this vote,
ami Radicalism will receive in Penn
sylvania an in j e of 8 per cent., or
24,581 votes, making a total of 331,505
votes, and Democracy will receive an
increase of 0 > per cent., or 87,028 votes,
making a total of 377,121 Democratic
votes, showing that we will have a
clear Democra ie majority of 45,209
Whilst the totals shown by this esti
mate are too large for the vote that we
will cast in October, no man who
knows the condition of public senti
ment in Pennsylvania will assert that
therelativo proportion wiii be lessened.
Maine voted for John 0. Fremont, yet
James Buchanan was elected President,
and Pennsylvania led the column of
States that made him the Chief Exec-
ecutive of the nation.
The hope of the .Republic is in the
I >eniocracy of the Keystone.
As in 1H56, tlie responsibility of de
termining the contest now rests with
iVtaine has proven that you can a
gain bring triumph to the principles
Ijt us arouse to renewed energy and
more determined effort.

IIE THAT IS SOT FOR VS IS AIiAISST
John Cessna is a deserter from the
Democratic ranks, lie went over to the
enemy in the heat and fury of the bat
tle. Ambitious as Lucifer, treacherous
as Judas, false as Arnold, he betrayed
the party from which ho sucked politi
cal life, and in the darkest hours of
that party's history turned upon it and
aimed his traitor stroke at its life. A
chasm yawns between him and the
party he stabbed in the back, in which
every man calling himself a Democrat
who now goes over to iiis support,
must and will perish. The man who
votes to send to Congress John Cessna,
the advocate of Impeachment, of Mili
tary Despotism, of Negro Suffrage and
Negro office-holding, and of all the
monstrosities of Radicalism, is not a
Democrat. As well might George
Washington have tolerated the pres
ence, in his army, of a man who en
dorsed the treason of Benedict Arnold,
as the Democratic party to recognize
and trust the man who calls himself a
Democrat and votes for the arch-traitor
Cessna. The ballot-box will show
whether there are any such men and
who they are. The chaff will be win
nowed from the wheat. The false will
be separated from the true. The Demo
cratic party has hitherto dealt too
gently with traitors in its own ranks.
It has forgiven and forgotten many
sins of its members. But one sin it
will never forgive — the endorsement, by
any of its adherents, of the miserable in
yrate whom it warmed into life in its
own bosom, and who, when he had sucked
its nourishment, reptile-like struck at its
life, lfany man, calling himself a
Democrat, prefers John Cessna to the
Democratic party, he is welcome to his
choice. But this choice he must make.
He that is not for us, is against us.
DEMOCRATS, ATTEND TO
WHY STASH WE HERE IDEE?
You are a Democrat? Yes! Why?
Because you believe the welfare of the
country depends upon the success of
Democratic principles. Well, then, if
you love your country, why are you
not active in behalf of the principles
which you believe will save and pre
serve its liberties and restore peace and
prosperity ? Are you waiting for you r
neighbor, for this man or that man, to
move first in the work? That will
never do. Put your own shoulder to
the wheel! Let every man who glo
ries in the name of Democrat, go io
work! Be active, vigilant, bold!—
This is no time for laggards and cow
ards! Democrats, yonder floats your
glorious flag, far in the advance. Push
on! Press forward! Victory awaits
you, if you act like men, brave, deter
mined, dauntless men. Have you
not had enough of tyranny? Have
you not had enough of Impeachment-,
of Radical revolution, of unequal tax
ation, of legislation that draws bil
lions from your hard earnings, nay,
have you not had enough of the politi
cal slavery which has crushed you to

ENDORSES NEGRO NIFFRU.E.
The Chicago Grant platform endorses
the forcing of Negro Suffrage and Ne
gro office-holding upon ten States of
the Union. By this platform, Grant
is pledged to the doctrine of the politi
cal equality of the Negro and the White
man. John Cessna helped to make
that platform. Whoever votes for

On Friday and S" urday last, Judge
Kimmell and J. Cessna met atSchells
burg and Bloody Run, to discuss the
issues involved in the platforms of the
two political parties. Judge Kimmell
did discuss those issues and discussed
them with great ability. J. Cessna did
not discuss them. lie went off at a tan
gent and ranted about the late war, in
which he took no part, except in speak
ing at Democratic meetings. He did
not dare to touch the financial question
and evaded the greater part of the "re
construction" issue. His speeches
were the "old two-and-six pence" over
again, which be has repeated during
the past three years. Judge Kimmell
fairly flayed hinralive, and at Bloody
Run the little fellow could stand it no
longer. He got mad. He reared, and
pitched, and picked his lips and pulled
at the seat of his unmentionables, until
his own friends became disgusted with
him. A pretty specimen he would be
to send to Congress ! We would like
it if he and Judge Kimmell could dis
cuss jointly before the people of every
township in this Congressional district.
Such a course wouid elect Judge Kim

The Inquirer undertakes to reply to
our article on "Taxation," by asserting
that the Democratic party was always
a free trade party and advocated a tariff
for revenue! This is clear as mud.
Free trade means no tariff at all, and if
the Democratic party has always been
for free trade, as the Inquirer alleges, it
certainly could not have been in favor
of a tariff on sugar, tea and coffee. No,
no, Mr. Lutz! That in too piain a con
tradiction. But the Inquirer does not
and dares not deny that every farmer,
nay every man, with an ordinary
family, pays a yearly tax to the gov
ernment of upwards of SIO.OO, and that
this tax is laid on the necessaries of
life. It has been imposed since the
Radical party came into power and
that party is responsible for it.

BEDFORD, PA., Sept. 21, ISOS.
HON. ALEX. KING,
Sir: —Differences of opinion having
arisen as to the proper construction of
the new law for the collection of taxes,
in thi-county, in relation to the sec
tions regulating extra assessments, it
becomes a matter of importance not
only to the voters of both parties but
to the proper administration of the
law hereafter, that these dill'erences
should be settled and that a uniform
practice should prevail throughout the
county. The disputed question is:
Who shall receive the ten days taxes?
That is whether these taxes are pay
able to the constables, or to the justices
of the peace, having the list of unpaid
taxes in their respective townships.—
Your Honor will co lfer a great favor
on the county Commissioners by giving
your opinion upon this point.
Very Respectfully Yours,
J. W. DICK Kits* >X,
Att'y for Commissioners.
BEDFORD, Sept. 22d, 18C8.
Bear Sir:—A very careful exami
nation of the Act of Assembly to which
you refer, has led me to the conclusion
that the taxes imposed by the assessor
in making the extra assessments men
tioned iti the 12th section, must be paid
to the Constables of the different town
ships, who have been qualified as pro
vided by law to receive the same, and
when they have not been so qualified,
to the collectors appointed by the
Commissioners, under the authority
conferred upon them by the Bth sec
tion of the Act.
The I.2th section seems to he a special
provision to enable the electors of the
Commonwealth to qualify themselves
to vote at the October election, and to
afford them every facility fordoing so.
The word "collector" in this section
cannot mean the . reasurer, or the Jus
tire of the Peace that is furnished with
the schedule of unpaid taxes, as pro
vided in the .3rd section. Their duty is
to receive the taxes tendered by tax
payers, and not to collect or gather
the taxes. This duty di volvcs upon
the constable, or the collector appoint
ed, where there is no constable quali
fied to act.
The provision that the assessor shall
certify the names of the persons assess
ed. with the amount of taxes imposed,
to the constables or collectors, is too
plain to he misapprehended. If the
Ijegislature intended that this certifi
cate should have been made either to
the Treasurer or a Justice of the Peace,
as has been contended, it would have
been so stated in the Act. No infer
ence is to he drawn from the fact that
the constables have nothing to do with
the unpaid taxes certified to the Jus
tice of the Peace,* as the 12th section
expressly gives the collection of these
ten days taxes to the constables, and if
to the constables, why not to the col
lectors who are merely substituted for
constables refusing to perform the du
ties, or neglecting to qualify them
selves by giving security, as required
by the Bth section, on or before the 3rd
Monday in September ?

Carbon County, in previous elections,
gave a Democratic majority as large if
not larger ti an that of Bedford County
and lam confident that at tlie coming
election the majority will be increased.
At a Democratic meeting held here
a few weeks since, several questions
were proposed to the Radical leaders
tor discussion. This discussion eame
off on Friday evening of last week. It
was opened oil the part of the Demo
crats, by Dr. Leonard, who, in very
forcible and glowing terms, proved to
every unpredjudiced mind the incon
sistency of the Radical Party. He pro
ceeded to prove that the public debt, in
stead of decreasing since the war, as it
would have done- Ly correct inamwe
mcnt, has been steadily on the increase.
He depicted the utter ruin of the govern
ment, in case the Radicals were contin
ued in power, and Grant elected to the
presidency. He was replied to in a
very feeble manner on the part of the
Radical,, by Mr. Kaibfus, who is the
Radical candidate for Congress in this
district, and who will he beaten as he
should be by a handsome majority.
The manner in which he,evaded the
several qu<-tious, was really amusing
to every one. His arguments through
out were without the least foundation.
The meeting passed off quietly and the
Democrats certainly came out victori
ous. I have just understood that the
discussion is to he resumed in differ
ent pai ts of the county. The Radicals
take every possible means of evading
the questions put to them regarding
