How Democracy is I'luwrisnixn. The
llarrisburg Patriot says: The resistless
march of tho Democratic party to tho pos
session of tho government of ttio country Is
portrayed in tho following eloquent figures.
In 1870 there wero only four Democratic
State Legislatures. In 1375 thoro aro twenty-five
Democratic Legislatures. The
Democrats aro thus seen to havo gained
political control of nearly two-thirds of tho
States of tho Union. In 1870 thcro were
ninety Democratic members of tho House
of Representatives of tho United States. In
1S75 when Congress meets in December,
there will be one hundred and eighty mem
bers of that body. In 1870 thero were
twelvo Democratic members of tho Senate
of tho United States. In 1875 thero aro
twenty-eight Democratic Senators.
Tho mighty revolution indicated by theso
expressive figures is moving forward to com
plete accomplishment. In Pennsylvania tho
Democrats havo rescued ono branch of the
Legislature and.two important departments
of tho Stato Government from Itepublican

The Greenback Depreciated by a Itepublican
Tho greenback of tho war coutained a
promiso and a contract as follows:
"This note is legal tender for all debts, pub
lic and private, except duties on import and
interest on the public debt, and is exchange
able for United States six per cent, twenty
year bonds, redeemable at the pleasure o the
United Slates after ice years."
This contract and promiso held tho green
back equal to tho bond, being interconverti
ble with it. In 1804 this convertibility was
destroyed, else tho greenback to-day would
be equal to the interest bonds, which aro six
per cent, better than gold. On this point
Chief Justice Chase delivered an opinion
from which wo quote:
"The best support for note circulation is not
limitation, but reccivability, especially for
loans bearing coin interest. It is plain
that a currency so supported cannot depre
ciate more than tho loans, .In other words,
below the general credit of tho country. It
will rise or fall with it. At the present mo
ment, if the notes wero received for five per
cent, bonds, they would be at par. in otuer
words, specie payments would bo resumed."

Mr. Uuckalcw addressed a meeting nt tho

evening last, (October 16th.) From notes
taken by Prof. S. N. Walker, Court Report
er, wo aro ablo to furnish a part of tho
speech, as follows i
Ol'.NTI.r.Ml'.N : Tho Democratic party of
Pennsylvania has presented to in, for our
support, candidates who are most fit nnd
worthy, in our judgment, for tho places for
which they havo been named. Our nomi
nating convention nt Krlo was peculiarly
fortunato in its selection of a candldato for
Governor, regard being had to his character
nnd to his past career; for, In private life,
In professional life ns a member of tho
bar, in political life as n member of the
Legislature, and. moro recently, in judicial
crvlco In tho adjoining county of Schuyl
kill, ho lias shown himself, ho has proved
himself, to bo n most deserving, rcllablc.ablo
and true man ; nnd I supposo that when this
can bo said with truth of a candldato even
for tho highest ofiico In our State, (that of
Govcrnor,)all has been said that is necessary,
save only that he shall agreo witli us in
opinion upon party questions nnd upon pub
The gentleman who has been nominated
for the second office to bo filled by tho peo
plo this year, (I mean tho olllco of Stnto
Treasurer,) is still better known to us; and,
although there may bo thoso who will criti
cise Col. Piollct for tills, that, or tho other
cause thero may bo those who havo been
brought Into conflict with him in past con
tests iu our congressional district or else
where yet it must bo aumiucd mat no is a
man of great energy of character, that he
has been a successful business man in the
several pursuits In which ho has engaged,
that ho has an ambition and a desire for the
approval of his fellow citizens In short,
that ho has all thoso characteristics which
will fit him for an energetic, nnd, if you
choose, an ambitious administration of tho
Treasury. And of ono thing wo can ho well
assured, and that is, that, (so far as integri
ty in tho discbargo of official duty is con
cerned,) ho will neither steal any of tho
public moneys nor, so iar as no can ncip it,
permit anybody clsoto steal them. So, gen
tlemen, the candidates who havo been nomi
nated for our support for Stato officers, stand
fairly before us as reputable aud fit men to
fill the places for which thoy havo been
named. Now, what are tho reasons that
iddress themselves to men of various
oniuions nnd positions in favor of their
election in addition to the considerations of
fitness to which I havo relerred? Why,
mainly and principally, that they are can
didates of Reform pledged to reform tho
administration of tho government of the
State; and that reform 'of administration and
management in our Stato allairs is now, it
possible, more necessary than iu former aud
recent vcars. I do not pronoso to go into
details, but I refer generally to facts with
r...-!lf-. 1. t. !.!!..
which yuu uru lauiuiui iiiiuuu uiu imuiiu
press, and through other sources of informa
tion facts of this character: that legislation
has been looso and reckless and sometimes
profligate ; that executive action iu its con
nection with legislation and in many other
respects, has been open to just complaint,
and particularly that in tho administration
of tho treasury of tho State, of tho finances
of the State, thero has been great nnd no
torious abuse, i nave, lying under my hand,
tho official statements of the Stato Treasurer
for tho four years ending iu May 1874 : and
theso statements mado up monthly, show
that during thoso four years, there was an
average surplus, (i c., an amount unused
money not required for current administra
tive purposes,) of between a million and a
half and two millions of dollars, and that
this surplus was deposited in various insti
tutions, witli various depositaries through
out tho State, somo of them of admitted nnd
others of doubtful credit and standing, aud
that obviously largo amounts were deposited
for political reasons with nersons.with firm-".
and institutions, where no prudent officer oi
ine &tatc,looKingnnly to the public interests,
would have placed them. One of tho reso
lutions adopted by our convention at Erio is
a resolution stromr vi L'iiounciiii tho mamicro-
ment of the Stato Treasury, and it demands
that hereafter, all tho public moneys of tho
State not needed for current expenses, shall
bo promptly applied upon the indebtedness
of tho State, through the agency of tho sink
ing fund, and that no Stato Treasurer or
friend of his, cither political or personal,
shall hereafter bo permitted to make profit
outoiiuo public moneys that these enor
mous balances shall not bo mado to yield
interest or profit to h high ofllcor of the
Stato or to his confederates in wrong.
three years ago, a gentleman who onco
filled a high position in tho government of
our State, informed me that his own institu
tion had for years statedly paid to tho Stato
Treasurer, interest upon public moneys de
posited therein that tho payment ol this
interest to tho treasurer, was as much a mat
ter of course, as the depositing of funds in
tho institution when collected by tho col
lecting officers in tho section in which he
lived. There is. gentlemen, no reason to
doubt that this has been a coursoof conduct.
or rather of abuse, in treasury management
lor years, ion win remember that, in the
Constitutional Convention, this subject was
iiuiy considered without uillercnceot party
and the Convention adopted the most strin
gent provisions against tins abuse, iiut,
gentlemen you may make your laws asstriu-
geut and searching as you plcaso, you may
muiio yoqr constitution tis lar-reaching as
you pleaso so that its provisions shall bo fit
ted for correcting all abuses of public ad
ministration to correct or prevent them
and you will utterly fail unless you select
proper men to administer your laws and to
obey your Constitution, Applause.!
Wo havo nominated men with special
reference to theso objects of reform, to which
I iiavo referred, and who, if elected, will per
form their whoio duty.
Jt cannot bo denied, gentlemen, that wo
hnvo fallen upon evil times. Wo know
that iudustry in nil its channels of activity
is moro or less paralyzed. Wo know that
commercial life is disturbed, and nil tho bu

necessity that wo shall look about us aud

Into our present position.
Gentlemen, we had four years of waste,be

possiblo that any peoplo shall engago in

that struggle a national debt now somewhere
above twothousaud millions ot dollars. Wo
hardly caro to know tho oxact amount-it is so
great that a hundred millions above or be-
low a given sum is cainparativcly unimport'
ant. Upon that debt wo pay tin interest,
therato of which Is higher, I believe, than
that paid upon its debt by any other civilized
country in tho world, llesidcs, tho interest
upon our debt is paid not iu tuo ordinary cur
rency which passes from hand to baud among
tho peoplo iu business transactions (I mean
greenbacks nnd national bank no'cs) but
paid iu coin or its equivalent. Aud again,
a great part of that interest is not paid to
domestic holders of our public loans but is
paid abroad to loreigu creditors, jmow, all
tills constitutes a great burden, constantly

In additon to thoso of tho general and State
governments. Hut, gentlemen, this process
and liablt of debt-nuiklng did not ston with
our governments and eorponto bodies; it
extended nmong tho people, nnd boc.imo
everywhere a characteristic of Individual
business and enterprise. Uut debt creation
indicated profuso outlay and expenditure,
public and private, greatly facilitated by
government issues ol papnr money nnd
tho operation oi mo national uaiiKs.
At ono time, during the war, tho govern
ment expenditures wero nt tho rato of two
mill ons of dollars a day. In Juno 180 l.tho
year before tho end of the wnr,T was called
upon to vote and did voto for appropriations
amounting to ono hundred and thirty mil
lions ol dollars in a singlo bill I it was
tho handling of enormous sums of money,
tho trcmcndlous outturn that wero caused by
and required by tho war It was tho specula

Hut as far as remedies can bo applied to
tho existing situation of things, wo should
ocek for them nnd apply them. I suspect
that government can do but little towards
affording nn immediate anil radical cure
for "hard times" complete instant relief
for prostractcd labor, and stricken industry.
Capital will remain timid; labor will re
main partly unemployed ; distress moro or
less stringent, will contlnue.lii somo quarters
of our country, and these things government
cannot wholly prevent. For society does
not depend upon government mainly or
mostly lor its prosperity and wcuare. inero
are only certain tilings which government
can do; its sphere is limited; it Is by no
means that omnipotent power which the
ignorant and unthinking supposo it to be.
That people who aro most independent, self
reliant, not looking to government as tho
source of their prosperity, but to their own
industry and labor, irugaiity, enterprise and
independent spirit will best succeed in tiio
raco of prosperity nnd in tho struggle for
national life. This may bo very old fashioned
doctrine, but it is taught and enforced by
tho history ot tho world.
Gentlemen. I don't think that government.
by issuing paper money profusely to tho
people, can increaso their wealth. I don't
think that if the government to-morrow un
dertook to tako charge of tho industries of
the nconlo to furnish them ninnlovinent.
and to provide tho means by which their
services should bo paid, it would succeed
any better, than other governments which
at sundry times have undertaken to work
such a paternal but lutilo policy. Now up
on theso subjects ol money and public iasth
our party has a declaration of doctrine, self
adopted, and now existing in lull iorcc. It
was adopted in Convention nt Ualtimoro in
1872, when wo asked from tho peoplo of tho

upon public faith and money, and it will

similar powers, will sit during tho coming

teachings of political economists and vindl

excludo considerations of expediency and
judicious action in their application. Tho

was adopted, a panic smote tho peoplo ot tho
United States, first in tho great cities nnd
afterwards throughout tho country, from the
pressure ot which wo havo not yet recover

count the existing money of the country, (if
wo may call it such,) and tho existing pros
tration of business, may pauso and hesitato
long, in tho application ot radical and com
plete remedies, such as theory suggests, for
existing evils. Therefore, there has been,
and there is, a pretty general agreement of
opinion, that tho immediate resumption by
tho government of the payment of its obli
gations in coin shall not bo pressed that
such a measure is impracticablo.it the mo
ment, aud probably cannot bo accomplished
in tho very near future. Thero must bo
pauso given : there must bo preparation
made; tho government and tho peoplo must,
iu various ways, prepare themselves for tho
accomplishment oi that great ouject. incre-
lore. so tar us men are proposing deluy. and

when l bay that bcvnnu tuo limit and scopo
of theso remarks, which I now submit to

l)i:i,PIII., October 13, 13752 o'clock, A, M.
To the people of Pennsylvania: Tho Indica
tions aro that the friends of reform are de
feated In Ohio. It has been a gallant and
bold fight by tho peoplo of that Stato against
tho money of tho Federal Treasury and tho
money of tho banking institutions of tho
country. It has been an issue between tho
honor and Integrity of tlio masses n'talnst
official power. Wo sympatlilo with tho
men who havo fallen in dofenso of thoso sa
cred rights guaranteed to them by tlio
Constitutional laws of tho country, lly tho
power of their own money, raised from them
by oppressive taxation, they hnvo fallen.
Hut the Issues presented (u tho contest which
lias transpired In Ohio are not those which
are before us In Pennsylvania. Tho peoplo
of Ohio uro an agricultural people. Tho
great staples of Pennsylvania consists of her
rou, her coal, licr manufactories and me
chanical Industries ; these havo first felt tho
baleful Influences of n ptolligate government
nml a bad system of national legislation.
Wo of Pennsylvania Iiavo been first to feel
tho rod of oppression nnd' tyranny. The
people of Ohio havo yet to learn what it has
been our misfortune to realize; had they but
been sensible of the wrongs wo slider, tlio
power of tho money of the Federal treasury,
and the corrupt and demoralizing practices
of tho men who used it, could never havo
beaten down tho honest yeomanry of Ohio.
What, therefore, is our duty as Pennsylva-
nlans? The disasters of our friends in Ohio
should encourage us to combat this insolent
foe with a determination and zeal that havo
no limitation. Tho obligations wo owe to
ourselves, to our country, to our families and
to tho cauo of gooil government Imperious
ly demand tills of us. Tho desolation of
our manufacturing industries, tho depression
of tho wages of labor require that wo should
enter into tho approaching contest witli all
our courage, with all our energy nnd a set
tled determination on our part that nothing
shall bo left undone which tho emergency
requires nt our hands. Wo cannot allord
that tho hard earnings of a busy life of labor
shall be exposed to tho executioner's ham
mer, nor can wostnnd and endure that terri
ble burthen of taxation which is exacted
Let us go into this contest under tho broad
banners of reform. Let us stand by tho or
ganization that has been formed and the re
solves adopted by the Democratic Conven
tion at Eric. Let us merge every personal
consideration aud look only to tho common
good in the relief of a sulll-ring and distressed
people. Let jis hattlo for our homes and
firesides beforo tho mercenary power of a
mercenary government .shall rob us of them.
Fellow citizens, tho issue before you may
lie tho last one between tho power of incor
porated wealth on ouo sido and tho integrity
nnd honor of tlio popular masses on the
other. Let thoso who are attempting to im
poverish and ruin you understand and
know that tho hourol determined resistance
lias come, and that it is your purpose to
make that manly resistance which the emer
gency of the occasion requires.

Tlio working man now gets $1 where ho

ho can get employment, yet ho has -?3 taxes

uphis taxes, ask for his vote. Will ho
throw it away upon them ? Pittsburg

An Awi-ul Suicide. On Tuesday, tho
28th cf September, Michael Shallcr, of Hrady
township, on returning from the barn, enter
ed tho hoiiso and was met by his wil'o, who
flourished a knife and attempted to lako his
life, but lie mado his escape from tho house.
Failing to injure her husband, she thrust tho
knife into her own abdomen, disonibowling
herself aud then started for tho woods. Sho
did not run far until sho fell, aud expired in
n short time. Sho has been subject to periods
of insanity, and no doubt was labeling under
fciich influence when she committed tho deed.
Common Sense vs. Prejudice.

1 am aware that thero is a popular, and
not altogether unfounded, pn-juuico against
"patent medicines," owing to the small
amount of merit which many of them pos
sess. Tho appellation "Patent Mpilleinn"
docs not apply to m;
to my remedies, as no patent
has ever been
uskcii lor or outaincd upoi
them, nor havo they been urged upon the
ptlblio as "cure-alls." They nro simply
somo favorito perscriptions, which, in a very
oxtensivo practice, havo proved their superi
or remedial virtues in tho euro of tho dis
eases for which they aro recommended
Every physician lias his favorito remedies,
which no oftencst recommends or ucs, be
cause ho has tho greatest confidence in their
virtues. Tho patient does not know their
composition, liven prescriptions aro usually
written in a language unintelligible to any
but tho druggist. As much secrecy is cm
ployed as iu tho preparation of proprietary
medicines. Docs tlio fact that an articlo is
prepared by n process known only to tho
manufacturer render that article less valua
ble? How many physicians know tho ele
mentary composition of tho remedies which
they employ, somo of which havo never
been analyzed? Few practitioners know
how Morphine, Quinine, Podophyllin, I.ep
tandrlii, Pepsin, or Chloroform, are made, or
how nauseous drams are transformed into
palatablo elixirs; yet thoy do not hesitato to
employ them, is it not inconsistent to uro
ii prescription, tlio composition of which is
unknown to iis,aud discard another prepara
tion siuifly because it is accompanied by n
printed statement of its propeities with di
rections for its use ?
Somu persons, whllo admitting that my
medicines are good pharmaceutial com
pounds, object to them on tho ground that
thoy nro too often used witli Inuillicient
Judgment. I proposo to obviate this difficulty
by enlightening tho peoplo as to tho struct
ure and functions of their bodies, tho causes,
character, mid symptoms of disease, and by
indicating tho proper and judicious employ,
ment of medicines, together with such
auxiliary treatment as may bo necessary.
