Blnco Iho mljoiirniiiont of Uio Into
county convontlon wo lmvo mado illU-
Bent Inquiry, of peoplo from tho var
ious townshlpa visiting this ofllco, In
rcforonco to public feeling regarding
tho county ticket. Wo tiro glad to bo
able to say that It gives ns universal
satisfaction as Is posslblo. Evcryvvhoro
tho bulk of tho party Is nt knst well
satisfied, and any attempt at disorgan
ization will bo met with stern resistance.
Pledged as nil tho caudldales wcro who
nppeared boforo Iho Convention to
abldo by Its decision, It would bo per
sonally dishonorable and treacherous
In them to rcfuso to support tho ticket,
and their active friends aro Included In
this plcdgo by their participation In tho
delegateeloctlon andsubmlsston of their
causo to tho decision of tho Convention,
In referring to tho ticket, the Berwick
Independent, at Republican proclivities,
Tho nominations mado oy tho Dem
ocrats county convention, which con
vened at Uloomsburg on Tuosday lust,
appear to glvo general satisfaction
ninoim- the Democrats in this section.
Those of tho candidates with whom wo
aro personally acquainted aro good men,
nnd wo think tho convention has acted
Judiciously In Us selection of candidates.
Of course, under such circumstances,
any candidate who comes out in opposi
tion to the ticket tcill simply be a candi
date of the lladicats, whatever profess
ion ho may make. Tho Radical ofllco
holding ring of this place, and their
sympathisers, aro trying to Induco some
men who aro professing Democrats to
run against tho tlckot, for tho purposo
of dividing and distracting tho Demo
cratic party, and by this means reduc
ing its majority, but whoever ylolds
to that temptation can only bo regarded
as himself a Radical, or what Is worse,
a tool of the ltadicals. Every truo
Democrat wants tho party to romain
firmly united, so that overy posslblo
voto may bo polled for tho Democratic
Statu candidates and tho largest possible
majority may bo given. When tho
country calls, It Is no tlmo to bo bicker
ing about trivial affairs nnd thoso who
nltcmpt to creato division can only bo
ranked with common opponents.
Our readers know how earnestly we
have endeavored to induco tho Radicals
to glvo tho people a history of thoir
candtdato for Auditor General, and es
pecially of his military sorvlcos. All
theao efforts aro, of course, In vatn, be
cause thero Is no history of merit to
givo. Tho Ilarrlsburg Patriot, how
over, comes to the rcscuo of tho Radical
scribes and glvos a full history of Stan
ton's llfo which wo condenso and sup
ply ,thus : lie wa3 born In Ohlo.orsomo
whero else, and squalled at his birth,
from which circumstance It was Infer
cd that ho would become a great man I
Ho learned his A, 11. C's., from somo
body not known, and tho fact that ho
had eventually becomo a contract sur
geon Induced tho Cameron ring-master
to supposo him nn adept In that
scientific branch of stealing which en
ables men to cover their tracks adroit
ly and they therefore nominated him
for Auditor General. Rut wo anticipate
history. In the pursuit of philosophical
investigation into natural causes and
their effects, Dr. Stanton discovered
that being a cousin of tho Secretary of
war .was a cause, tho effect of which
would result in giving him an ofllco.
With a straight coat-tall ho rapidly
marched to Washington. Being con
vinced in common with tho most In
tense brawling patriots of that day,
that "discretion was tho better part of
valor," be resolved not to risk his skin
in tho roar and turmoil of "grim vis
aged war," but to content himself with
tho office of contract surgeon, with tho
pay of a fighting colonel, which afford
ed 'him a safo refuge in some secluded
hospital. Thero ho remained until the
conclusion of tho war, and It Is proper
to add that ho was tho last man dis
charged by his undo, long after tho war.
Retiring to privato Ufa when ho couldn't
help it, he remained In quiet reposo un
til the mule contractors and other gen
tlemen of similar Impulses and-purposos
Introduced him to tho public as tho
Radical candidate for Auditor General.
They Infer that no man Is better quali
fied than Dr. Stanton to discharge the
duties of Auditor General in tho man
ner they want it done and that his pro
fessional attainments will cnablo him
to doctor or to amputato any accounts
which may bo deemed unhealthy by
tho treasury ring.
Tho ring that nominated Stanton
already has charge of the Treasury. If
they elect him they will bo enabled to
scttlo their own accounts, and thus, as
the dullest chucklo-hcad may see, all
confusion about fairness and honesty
will bo avoided and thoso who have
hold of tho State's purse strings can
help themselves to their own satisfac
tion. Our military friends end their admir
ers will see that though Dr. Stanton
was novcr In or near a battlo ho ranked
as Colonel, and drew pay and rations as
Colonel, and Is therefore dosorvlng full
credit as such. Rut at somo future tlmo
we will glvo tho balance of Dr. Stan
ton's history, if there is any more.
Tue Democratic Standlni: Committee
will meet in this placo to-morrow for
tno purpoEo of organliing thoroughly
lor mo ensuing campaign. Arrange-
monts should be made to lnsuro tho at
tendance of every Democratic voter at
tho polls this fall and to make every

Tho Locust DelcKftlos.
At tho latodolegato election In Locust
township, thero wcro precisely 100 vot
ers for Urockwuy and 13 or 10 for Mc
Henry. Tho llroekwny voters run
three delegates, namely, John Snyder,
DanlolStlno and John 1'. Walter, nnd
loft tho fourth delegate to bo chosen by
tho McHenry men. Tho result proves
that they Judged correctly as to their
rclatlvo strength and ran tho right
number of persons. They had votes
enough to elect three delegates from
tho township, but not enough to elect
tho wholo four.
But tho Mcllonry mon Instoad of run
ning but ono delegato on their ticket,
(as tho result shows they should havo
dono), ran our, namely, Adam John
son, W. L. Kline, W. II. Rolnbold nnd
Samuel Fottorman. Johnson, Kllno
nnd Rolnbold received each IB votes,
Fottorman 15, and Mcllcnry had, on
Instructions, 15 votes. So, unquestion
ably, tho tlirco Broskway delegates nnd
ono of tho McHenry delegates who re
ceived 40 votes, wcro entitled to scats
in tho convention, and tho only ques
tion was, which one of thoso who had
received 10 votes should bo admitted.
On motion, and without opposition,
Adam Johnson was admtttod ns tho
fourth delegato from Locust and ho
took his seat and served along with tho
thrco majority delegates. All this was
quite regular and perfectly Just. Each
Interest had lis duo representation and
tho rules of nomination wcro exactly
As to tho voting of tho Locust dele
gates In Convention afterwards, tho
facts nro as follows :
1. Snyder, Stlno and Walter had been
Instructed by tho 100 voters who elect
ed them to voto for Brockway for Rep
resentative, and they did voto for him.
Mr. Johnson had been Instructed by 15
of tho 4G voters who elected him to voto
for McHenry and ho did voto for Mc
Henry. So, beyond all question, upon
tho nomination for Representative,
each delegato exactly performed his
duty under his instructions.
2. For Assoclato Judge, Snyder, Stlno
and Walter voted for Dorr, having been
instructed to do so by 00 ol tho 100 who
elected them. Mr. Johnson had been
instructed by 1 1 of tho 1C voters who
elected him to voto for Lake, but his
numo Is entered In tho Convention pro
ceedings ns voting for Demott. Wo
havo heard no reason assigned for this
fdeparturo from regularity and It seems
to havo been inadvertent and overlook
ed nt tho time.
3. For Treasurer, Snyder, Stlno and
Wultcr wero not instructed, but thoy
voted fur Lamon. Of tho 100 voters
who elected them, -19 voted Instructions
for Lamon, 10 for Everett (Including
three tickets Irregular as to name), and
2 voted blanks as to Treasurer. As no
candidate had a majority of tho wholo
voto given to thoso dolegates, thero
wero no instructions to them for Treas
urer which tho Convention could en
force under tho 15th rule. It required
51 of their voters to Instruct them and
no more than -19 voted for any candi
date ; they wero thcroforo freo to voto
according to their own judgment nnd
choice. Mr. Johnson, tho other Locust
delegate, voted for Everett, pursuant to
tho instructions of -15 of tho -10 voters
who elected him.
Upon tho Tally-paper returned to tho
Convention thoro was an excess of
scores for Treasurer, namely, for Ever
ett of 12 and for Lamon of 11. But tho
tickets which wero produced and count
ed by order of tho Convention, (and
afterwards again carefully counted by
tho Secretaries), showed tho results
abovo mentioned nnd agreed with tho
total voto of tho district as shown by
tho list of voters.
1. For County Commissioner, Snyder,
Stlno and Walter voted for Tolic, hav
ing been Instructed for him by 85 of tho
100 voters who elected thorn; whllo
Johnson voted for Shaffer under tho
instruction of 11 of tho -1G voters who
Thus It .will bo seen that with tho ex
ception of an inadvertent voto on Asso
ciate Judge, all tho votes given by tho
Locust delegates upon leading nomina
tions lu Convention, wero regular and
authorized, and not in any way open to
eproach or question.
It is truo that throughout tho voting
regard was had by Delegates only to
tho instructions of tho voters who actu
ally elected them, but this was in exact
conformity with tho 15th rule. That
rulo provides, that "Delegates instructed
by the voters who elect them shall obey
theirinstructions,&c.;"a. provision which
was fully set forth and oxplainod In
tho Columbian on sovoral occasions
prior to the delegato elections. So In
Centre towr.shlp, for instance, where
two Brockway delegates and ono Mc
Henry delegato were choson, Lamon
had altogether Gl votes and Everett but
20. Vet Everett roceivod tho voto of
tho McHenry delegato because Ms 20
votes constituted a majority of the votes
gleen to that delegate. But wo need not
multiply Illustrations or oxtend our
remarks upon n point which Is perfectly
plain under the rules.
Tho Ropubllcof Liberia has now been
in existenco for many years, under the
Joint protectoralo of Uio United States
and Great Britain. Tho colonization
societies of tho two countries havo also
constantly aided tho Liberians with
educational means, agricultural Imple
ments, Ac, yet they havo novcr been
nblo to get along without aid. When
It comes to government, howovor, tho
darkles are quito proficient In manipu
lating for office. At a recent Presi
dential election, RonERTa, a former
President, was elected, but tho defeated
eandldato (now In office) refuses to
yield, nlledglng that ho was elected for
four years Instead of two, a discovery
that should certainly havo been mado
boforo nn election was held. As tho
British keep n man-of-war In the harbor
they will no doubt sottlotho hash.

to the appointment of Mr. Adams as
Arbitrator on tho part of tho United
States in the Alabama claims controv

missioner. Both uppolntmonts aro com

strong terms, becausoboth the appoint

press -would reclprocato this generosity
wheal speaking of leading Democrats,
but-'whether thoy do or not tho courso

The- Defaulting Collectors.
A further explanation has been given
by tho Secretary of tho Treasury in re
gard to tho defaulting rivenuo Collect
ors of Pennsylvania, which sustains
tho declarations of tho latter that " tho
balances against them consist of tax
lists charged to them but turned over
to their successors In office." Tho Sec
retary further says :
"Under tho existing law tho account
ing officers cannot credit nn outgoing
Collector with lists so turned over, un
less tho Commissioner of Internnl Rov
onuo shall certify that such outgoing
Collector has used duo diligence. In tho
nbsonco of such certificate tho account
ing officers cannot credit Collectors with
taxes turned over to their successors,
and In almost every caso a Collector
must appear to bo in arrears, though
nothing bo due from him, until tho re
quired certificates shall havo been sup
Tho apparent deficit of W. L. Scott,
of this district, Is now given at $2,080
93, and that or MaJ. Suuineu at $3,139
57. We do not In tho least doubt but
that upon final settlement it will ap
pear that neither of theso gentlemen,
nor Mr. Guernsey, of tho 18th district,
will owe tho government a dollar. Tho
bungling Inefficiency and stupidity of
tho officials nt Washington Is unmatch
cd by any government on tho faco of

Our careful nnd repeated explanations
of voting prior to tho lato primary clec-
tlons wero mainly upon tho subject of
instructing delegates an old practlco or
usago of party which had not been
abolished by tlio now rules. That old
feature of tho rules was tholr single
defect and produced the only Inconvo-
nlenco encountered in tho primary elec
tions, nnd ns it retained to sorao'oxtont
tho unjust principle of tho disfranchise-
mcntof voters, It was luconstcnt with
the now plan of reform applied to tho
election of delegates. It was, howover.
swept away by a unanimous voto of
tho convontlon and tho rules wero mado
harmonious, consistent, con vonlont and
thoroughly Just for tho future. In a fu
turo articlo wo will point out tbo char
acter, extent and oporatlon of tho now
rulo which substitutes reformed voting
for all offices lu placo of tho old and
unsatisfactory plan of Instructions,
What wo havo to remark horo, Is, that
tho plan of electing delegates upon tho
prlnciplo of tho freo voto worked well
at tho delegato elections nnd gave tho
.fullest satisfaction. This is proved by
tho fact abovo mentioned that tho Con
ventlon by a unanimous voto extended
tho prlnciplo upon which dologates aro

Prohibition State Contention.
This body assembled nt Ilarrlsburg

General, nnd E. A. Whkelkii, of Mor

remains to bo scon. Heretofore tho po
litical feature of tho prohibition move
ment has been mado to work directly
to tho interests of tho Radicals nnd tholr
predecessors, and whou It could not bo
so worked It was kept out of sight. Au
ndlcatlon that tho present effort is nn

Mr. Barr Spanolek. tho eandldato

ucenso laws, lor it has had lull power
to modify them, and has persistently
refused to do so. It cowers beforo tho

better In that respect than tho Democ

Wo copy tho following circular, ro
celved from New York, ns a matter In
Itself amusing, if not of moro serious
concern. Twenty yearsago tno present
stato of tho country was osteonied ns im
probable ns It is now that nt any futuro

and If It had then boon assured that In
1870 either women or negroes would bo
permitted to voto, hold ofllco and sit
upon Juries, nobody would havo doubt
ed that women would bo preferred. It
is thcroforo not moro unlikely than
other things that havo happened, that
In a few years women will voto and ono
of their number will bo President a
