Wo nro compelled to commenco our
romnrks upon tho recent election In Its
local iispects by fuiylrvf;, Hint overy ills
trlct unci county ciimllriato whoso name
was borno upon tho Democratic ticket
in this county and to whom thero wns
any opposition, teas defeated. Thero was
not ono exception. A fact so startling
and ono which wo supposo is unexam
pled in tho history of tho County do
iimniia attention j it cannot bo pushed
out of sight or passed by as simply disa
greeable or unimportant and thcrcforo
to be forgotten as soon as possible Tho
lesson which It teaches Is to bo fully un
derstood ; tho instruction to bo drawn
from it is to bo kept In memory at least
until better results slum bo obtained -in
Tho Democratic candidate for Con-
Kro fails of election by only votes,

cratic votes aru unpolled in this coun

including at least CO or 70 Republican
vote.4 received by him in Catawissa and
other districts. Six hundred sluggish
and unhopeful voters staid away from
the election and by their absence caused
our defeat. Capt. IluocKWAY ran well
lu all tho other counties of tho District
and ran well hero upon the voto polled.
Tho few votes lost by him in Blooms
bur; and Berwick were more than
mado up in other parts of tho county,
and upon a reasonably full voto his
county majority would liavo exceeded
12000. As it is, wo must submit to a re
suit which was as unnecessary as it is
mortifying, and can only look to the
future for a reversal of this sclf-lnillc
The result upon Representative is
not, a party failure nor significant of fu
turo weakness. For although the sue
cestui canuluato was supported oy a
majority of tho Republican voters of
tho district, tho election really turned
upon local and personal considerations
rattier than political. Tho decision (lis
tinctly wa-i that Montour county should
havo tho Representative at this timo
and that her choice of a candidate
should bo respected. In fact tho vote
given to Judge Rupkut, though given
under cover of a nomination of technic
al regularity mado by the conferees of
this county, may bo considered as in
tho naturo of a protest, and as provoked
or occasioned by tho Senatorial contest
of 1809. A majority of tho Democrats
of this county withheld their assent
from tho election of Mr. Ciialfant,
but they will bo in a position to Judgo
his public conduct fairly and will ba
moro disposed to approvo than to con
demn. Tho reasons for the success of Judgo
MoNKon in obtaining an election to the
place, ho now holds by nppoIntmcnt,are
various. Tho ofuco of Judgo Is not
considered to be as strictly political as
most others; the Major (as ho Js famil
iarly called) was but lately appointed
to the Bench, uud at tho instance main
ly of Democrats ; ho appears well in
Court and is iutolligent and accommo
dating in tho transaction of county bus
iness, and besides ho has a pleasant
temper and n popular address. It was
remembered also, to tho Major's credit,
that at a Republican Convention In tho
Court IIouso, within n year or two, lie
paid his respects in pretty plain lan
guage to tho Bloomsburg ring of radi
cal ollice-holders, printers and lawyers,
and left them with tho public declara
tion that "lie did not belong to their par
ty." Besides tho foregoing considera
tions, wo bellovo thero was an impres
sion that tho Democratic, nomlnoo was
better suited to somo other otllco than
tho particular ono for which he had
been nominated. Rut wo confess that
after taking into view all theso partly
ulars, wo are unablo to state to Mr
Yohe and his friends any reason for his
defeat, (after a regular nomination,)
which appears to us or will appear to
them to be completely sufficient and
The nomineo for Sheriff was defeated
upon a close voto by a Democratic Vol
unteer. This office Is very often keenly
contested In tho counties of this StutP,
but in thiscounly it is not lucrative in
ordinary times. Tho large number of
candidates for nomination tho present
yoar, was one causo of difficulty in tho
election, as there was necessarily moro
of disappointment than usual caused by
the selection of a candidate And it
was objected to tho nomineo that ho did
not purpose to discharge the duties of
the office In person, but to continue tho
former incumbent therein as his depu
ty. But tho principal cause of defeat
was tho charge that the nomination was
procured by tho corruption of the Cen-
tralla and Conyngham delegates ut tho
This charge, which, if true, would
havojustlflod revolt from tho nomlna
tlon, and open opposition to It, wan, wo
believe, unjust. As wo understand the
facta, nnd that too upon reliable Infor
nation, tho delegates from Centralla
and thoConyngham Districts wereelected
or Millard, and a part of them at least
wero Instructed for him.
How absurd to chargo a candidate
with buying hW own delegates I to no
enso him for obtaining what was Justly
his duel Tho almost unanimous voto
given to Millard In those districts at
the regular election also goes to prove
that tho people thero wero truly ropro
sontad by tho votes given by their del
egates In Convention. Wo do not wrlto
this for the purpose of controversy, nor
to rovlvo unnecessarily tho questions of
the canvass, but In tho Interest of fair
play and in justlco to men who though
beaten ought not to bo disgraced. The
gontlemun elected Sheriff, will no
doubt make an attentive and energetic
officer, and ho owes his election mainly
to bis great UUlgenco and perseverance
in tho canvass. Most men would have
failed undor tho same circumstances.
This much by way of explanation and
exculpation. Wo trust tho Democracy
of Columbia will see to it thatnoexpla
natious for defeat will bo required hero
after. They should wake their nomina
tions with the utmost care and then
glvo them hearty and unanimous support.
Xho Election of Councllmon In
In Northumberland Borough nt tho
recent election, thero was n Republican
majority of 10 for Burgess. Very prop
erly each party nominated only Uiree
Councllmeu although six wero to be
chosen, because tho freo voto applied to
tho election of those officers. Tho re
sult was that tho Democrats, giving
each two votes to cich of their three
candidates elected them, but ono of the
Republican candidates was beaten by u
Republican Volunteer. As this caso il
lustrates tho working of tho freo vote,
wo glvo tho facts as wo understand
them to have occurred.' At tho Repub
lican meeting to nominatoCouucilmcn,
a gentleman who expected to bo nomi
nated was defeated by tho arts or influ
ence of a personal enemy who immedi
ately afterwards boasted of tho achlev-
mcnt. The friends of tho beaten man
became Indignant nnd concluded to rec
tify tho lnjustlco dono by electing him
as an independent candidate. Tho freo
voto afforded them tho ready means of
accomplishing their purpose, and they
proceeded at tho election to voto plump
crs of six votes for their friend and
carried him through tho contest trium
phantly. Without disturbing tho re.
suits of the election generally, they car
ried their man and secured representa
tlon for themselves In tho council accor
ding to their deslro.
Bolting n nomination undor tho now
plan of voting means then that com
monly tno bolters can obtain their duo
share of power and no more, and that
tho wholo election cannot bo turned up
sldo down or changed throughout by
them. One-sixth of tho voters of Nor
thumberland can elect ono councilman
but they cannot disturb tho other vo
ters of tho town in choosing tho remain
ing five. Under tho old cut-throat raa
jority rulo tho bolters would havo been
compelled to form a combination with
tho opposito party, or to trado or buy
votes, in order to -succeed : tho whole
election would probably havo been
muddled or disgraced, aud ono party or
tho other would havo carried moro than
itsbharo of tho officers to bo elected.
Tho now plan insuresjustlcotoall, pre
vents intriguonnd corruption, preserves
tho orderly action of parties, cuts off
tho main mischiefs of bolting, and en
courages tho selection of good men as
candidates. So farns wo know, wher
ever triedjits success has been completo
both as a workable plan nnd as ono pro
ductlvo of good results.

Stephen II. Miller, and William Kra
mer, Democrats, and Johnson II. Ike-
ier, Republican, are thercforo elected,
for three year terms commencing on
tho first day of April next. Theso offi
cers being chosen on tho plan of tho freo
vote, pursuant to a special act approved
March 23th, 1870, It was inovitablo that
they would bo divided between tho two
political parties accordlngto ujust prln
clpleof representation. Tho majority
In the district would bo ablo to elect
two and tho minority ono. Tho Demo
crats therefore voted tickets in tho fol
lowing form :
"Stephen H. Miller, 11 votes,
William Kramer, 1 votes."
The Republicans nominated two can
dldatcs also, and tickets for them wero
prepared In thosame form ; but us thoy
had not votes enough to elect both they
finally concentrated their voto mainly
upon Ikeler, as shown in tho above ro
turn. Tho election at last becamo to
them n question of choice or preference
between their own candidates, and tho
result shows that they pruferrod Ikeler.
It Is here shown that tho freo voto not
only divides offices fairly between par
ties, but enables voters of either party,
In certain cases, to chooso between their
own nominees and to correct any blun
der made in their nomination. Tho
truth is, thai tho now plan of voting is
so flexible as well as Just that it readily
adapts Itself to any stato of facts at nn
election, and gives to the voter that
complete freedom of action which is
necessary to his judicious exercise of tho
right of suffrage In this case, whero
three Directors of tho Poor wero to bo
chosen, allowing each voter to glvo his
three votes to one, two,or three candid-
ntes,as ho might think fit, enabled each
parly to tako what belonged to it and
to handle its votes initio most conven
ient nnd!Tffectuarmanne?Morth!fitr end;
and it also afforded tho ready means of
correcting a'blunder mado in tho selec
tion of candidates. This election also
furnishes another proof of tho conven
ience and accuracy with which frac
tional votes may bo polled, counted and
returned in all cases whero their um
shall bo fuund desirable.
Wo glvo below tho official voto of the
District, by counties. But slight dif
ference will bo noted between this and
tho tubio published by us last week.

Tho nations of Europe aro fast learn
ing how fallacious It Is to rely on stand
ing armies. The United States Itiaug.-
u rated tho policy of trusting to tho
people In every emergency, nnd, though
tho old world has refused to bo taught
by example, It Is now learning by ex
perience, that tho people who give pros
polity to a nation In tlmo of peace, aro
Its surest dufonsu In war. Robert Lowe1,
Kngllsh Chancellor of tho exchequer,
recently delivered n Npeech, In which hu
Thero Is another lesson orconseqiienco
still moro agreeable. What wo havo
been witnessing Is tho destruction of a
most gallant standing nrmy by what Is
not ii standing nrmy, but un armed na
tion, and that not altogether by tho su
perior qualities of tho men, but by tho
enormous preponderance of numbers
which tho fact of their being an armed
nation has given them. I think I hear
In that tho knell of standing armies,
many of tho large standing armies of
tho Continent. If thoy cannot protect
the nation against war with such n
country as Prussia, whoso troops have
to bo called from tho counter, tho loom
and tlio plough, of what use aro they?
It seems to tno that nuy nation that
wishes to be protected against Invasion
and against destruction must not only
rely on a staudlng army, If for no other
reason than bocauso its numbers are
necessarily limited, but it must put
arms in tho hands of tho people uud
trust to them as Prussia trusts for tho
defense of their own Uud. if thai be
so. seo tho blessed results which will
follow from it. Ouo is freedom. A na
tion which Is armed, and on whose nil-
swer to tho call deoends tho safety of
tho country, must necessarily bo n na
tion of freo men. They will bo armed,
and their sovereign must govern in ac
cordance with their wishes, or lie will
not get their support when ho gets In
volved in difficulty. It seems to mo
that this is a return to tho sort of jude
liberty enjoyed in tho middle ages, when
the king was kept In order by the fact
that all ills subjects had arms In their
hand-', nnd would not suffer themselves
to bo oppressed beyond a certain limit.
Then there Is another good effect, and
that Is, that such an organization is
mainly useful for defensive wars. Had
not tho heart of the Prussian nation
been In this war it would havo been
vain to expect from it tho extraordinary
efforts It lias made, and it would have
been impos-slblo for tho people to as
semble In so wonderfully short a timo.
If tho people aro to bo cousulted, the
peoplo will only fight when they sco it
to bo to their Interest, nnd I think thoy
will only see It to bo for their interest
when it Is for tho sacred Idea of pro-'
tectlng their common country.
Wliatevor may bo tho end of tho con
test, it mustboovldent to all that Prus
sia entered upon it with no desire to ac
quire territory, but merely to defend"
herself from Invasion. Theso things
seem full or promise lor tho future;
they seem to promiso moro enlarged
freedom in tho future than exists at
present; they seem to hold out fair
promise, if not for universal peaco, at
least for tho prevention of such wars as
this wo are now witnessing. If kings
must rest upon their peoplo, if they de
pend upon them and not hired soldiers,
they must govern according to tho will
of tho pooWe. If (hat bo so these tilings
may compeusato for a great deal of tho
bloodshed nnd horror wo have seen.
Tho Sunbury Election.

The Prussians havo not yet commenc
ed tho bombardment of Paris, but have
captured Orleans and several other im
portant points. Tho French Provision
al Government Is constantly sending
out bombastic statements, which are
repeated and enlarged upon by tlio city
sensational papers of New York nnd
Philadelphia, nnd which servo only to
confuse und mislead thoso who aro sira
plo enough to credit them. Earnest ef
forts to effect u peaco aru said to bo now
making by tho principal powers of Eu
rope, which it is hoped may provo sue
Lateii. As wo go to press it Is stat.
ed that Metz has capitulated, tho terms
including peace, with tho son of Napo,
Icon III as Emperor, and Marshal Ba
zaluo ns Regent!
An Iminenso demand for breadstuffs
is anticipated from both Franco nnd
Prussia Immediately after the close of
tho war, and American grain-growers
and factors naturally look for a largo
share in tho pront. They need not
however, expect to monopllzo it, since,
tho preparations in Russia to meet this
demand aro said to bo on a largo scale,
A letter from Odessa, bearing dato Sop
tember 8, says that the quantity ofco
reals stored at that point, and awaiting
tlio close of hostilities, is great beyond
all precedent. British capitalists an
said to havo embarked extensively in
tho speculation. It is not unreasonable
to hope that American interests may bo
furthered by tho prospective demand
for breadstuffs; but tho facts wo men
tiou clearly Indicato tho danger of over
estimating this advantage, '
i -if . -(
Ciiampaone, It Is believed, will bo
very ecarco for t-overal years, in conso.
quenco of tho. districts producing that
wiiio and tho great depots of Rhelms
and Chalons, with their millions of hot
ties, having boen occupied by tho Ger
man armies. This year's vlntago is do
stroyed, and tho damage to tho owners
of tho vlnoyards, tho wine makers.and
tho merchants, it is calculated, will ox
ceed twenty millions of dollars. Of
courso tho sham-pagno wines will still
bo produced, and in' greater abundance
than over, so that the manufacturers o
cider will profit by tho war.
A Cincinnati woman named Hock

The Radicals boast that thoy havo

Fivo voles were eas-t for V E. Plolctt,
Editoh or Columiuan, Dear Sir:
Thinking something from Hurrisburg
might provo acceptable to you and your
readers, I at onco proceed to communi
cate somo facts connected with our late
Tho prominent featuro of our recent
Ity election, was the election of the
Democratic nomineo for Mayor, Wm.
R. Vkkiieck, who overcame tho over
whelming party voto of the Republicans
n this city, nnd was elected by a ma
jority of 1G2 votes over Colonel Wm.
Jknninhs, tho regular candidate of
the Republican party.
Mr. Vkkiicck Is nn old inhabitant of
this city, highly distinguished for ills
hllanthrophy and his patriotism. In
tho unstinted exercise of thoso virtues,
ho materially impaired his pecuniary
means, which wero ample. Ho also
x ponded a groat deal of money In his
efforts to Improve his nutivo city and
eventually becamo poorlti cousequenco
of his noble endeavors lu tho causo of
humanity and of his country. It was
under these adverse circumitatices that
tho Democrats In tills city nominated
ilm for Mayor, and tho peoplo at largo
generally responded to that nomination.
For, notwithstanding tho very Itnpcr
rect organization of tho Democrats, who
fought, in this campaign, morollkoraw
militia thnn well drilled regulars; not
withstanding tho vile nnd brutal nbuso
which the Fccning Telegraph daily
omited from tho cess pools of Its filthy
oflleo upon an unoffending and dofenso
loss man; notwithstanding -tho uttor
poverty of tho candldato j Wm. 1C.
Vkkiieck was triumphantly elected,
at which the peoplo greatly rejoice, bo
causo thoy feel they have achieved n
groat moral victory .
As regards tho Democratic party hero
and elsowliere, they may derivo somo
wholesome lessons from tho result of
this election. Thoy may hero realize
ho immense importanceof nominating
to office, not only competent men, but
also men whosoirreproachablocharactor
will command public respect and confi
dence and glvo to their cause nn earnest
of victory. For, whatever may ha said
to tho contrary, prlvato virtue will,
even in these degenerate days, oxtort
tho admiration of ovou thoso who havo
not tho couragu to iinitato it.
Another most useful lesson which tlio
Democracy may learn from the election
of Veuiikcic, U, that an honest man,
however poor, may bo elected to oflleo
without tho corrupting nppllanco of
money 1 This, in theso times of relaxod
political morals, is a great and Import
ant fact, worthy of bolng submitted to
the serious consideration of every Dem
ocrat and of overy honest Republican
In tho country. Especially us, of late
years, certain individuals in our party,
havo preached with but too much suc
cess, tho Infamous doctrine, that nono
but rich men ought to bo nominated to
oflico, becauso of their pecuniary ability
to purchase their election.
That such a monstrous doctrino should
for a singla moment, receive tho coun
tonnnco of tho Democratic party, Is ono
of thoso strango anomalies which from
tlmo to time, como to confound tho
stoutest buliovers in tho Infalllblo con
clusions of sound logic. For, could it
bo belioved that tho great body of tho
Democracy, which consists of working
men, mechanics, farmers and men in
moderate pecuniary circumstances,
would voluntarily excludo themselves
from oflico and consent to sink to tho
degrading occupation of hewers of wood
and drawers of water for tho special be
hoof and benefit of a few rich men who
might condescend to assumo their par
ty name as tho shortest and easiest road
to power and political distinction?
Could it bo supposed, that the Demo
cratic party would con-.ont to sink Itself
into tho cloaca of thoso infamous and
corrupt practices at elections, for which
wo sojustly denounco our political eno
mles V And lastly, could it bo believed
that the Democratic party (emphatical
ly tho poor mun's party), would bo so
stupid ns to divest itself of its luvulnor
ablo armor of prlnciplos foundej upon
Immutable truth und Justice, to rush
naked in mortal combat, against a foo,
armed to tho teoth with all tho corrupt
ing influences of aggregated and indi
vidual wealth? As well might u poor
man at an auction hope to enter Into
successful competition with a million
aire, for tho purchaso of uny article up
on which tho hitter had set his heart.
It is to bo hoped tho Democracy will,
upon reiiection, repudiato this abomin
able, berojy, which practlcal'y excludes
from uny important office nlno-tenths
of tho men composing our party, and
which was cunningly devised by a fow
political sharpers whoso otject was to
Hue their own pockets by Imposing on
mo generous credulity of thu rich can
dldates whom thoy had set up for tho
solo object of skillful phlebotomy. Tho
bhortness of my puper udmonlsbos itio
to closo In tho midst of u subject sulll
clently prolific to cover two or threo
moro shoots. Should this prove accept
able, I may hereafter resume tho sub
To n wild negro having turned up in.
