Democrats, ORGANIZE! See
that you and your democratic neigh

The radicals are making a desper
ate effort to defeat a portion of our
county ticket. Don't permit a single
nominee to be sacrificed. Go to work;
be vigilant and active from now until
the election.
Democrats, stand by the nominees
upon your county ticket There is not
a man upon it, upon whom a flaw can
be picked by the radicals, yet they are
working secretly and quietly to run
in upon our ticket They will offer
to trade—don't do that, we do not
stand in need of that kind of work to
elect any of our nominees ; if every,
democrat remains true to the ticket,
the whole of it will be elected by a
sweeping majority. Don't trade,
Democrats, go the whole ticket, they
are all good booest men, and life
long Democrats.
Horace Greeley never was a know
nothing, but on the contrary, when
that prescriptive wave swept over the
country, he fought it and dealt it his
heaviest blows.
Henry Wilson, alias Jeremiah Col

The Lewistown Gazeue says, Mr.
Greeley proposed paying the southern
slaveholders 400 million dollars for
their lost slave property. The Ga

Hartranft, Evans A Co., stole several
hundred thousand from the state
treasury, bad not the Gazette better

peddling falsehood ?
We propose to our radical brethern
the following appropriate mottoes for
their banners:
"Morton Put That iu," —Grant.
"Addition, Division, A Silence."—
"It Takes the Starch Right out."-
"Dear Yerkes."—Hartranft.

The nine million steal will be tried
again, in the legislature, next winter,
by which the eecurities belonging to
the sinking fond for the payment of
state debt, are to bo given to inilroad
corporations. The readers of the RE
rouTKK know that this scheme of the

Iftet five years, and several times came
near passing, and if the people are
careless in the kind of men they elect

Wo are happy to say, that our nom- j
iuee, John H. Orvi*, is upon the rec i

Impeded to make soiuelhiug, on the

I can't be gulled by that game. Bouj.

Jan honest, hardworking farmer, with-
I jut a flaw upou his character,and one
I of the most consistent democrats to be
I found. What democrat would be
williug to cut him down ? None.
The radicals are making a desper
ate effort to defeat Benjamin Shafer.
They will fiud it hard work, and are ac
cordingly working hard to do it. They
are already circulating falsehoods
against him. Democrats believe noth
ing they say. Mr. Shafer is a man —
an honest man—in every sense of the
i word.
The Republican is bogging demo
cratic votes for its candidates for
prothoootary, register and recorder,
and is verdant enough to think that
honest democrats will forsake Will
iams, and such true, faithful and tried
servants as Morrison and Grennoble.
Democrats are not made of such stuff,
as to be led estray by the coaxing of
the Republican. Our ticket is a good
(ooe and satisfactory all through.
I The ascertained result of the late
I election in West Virginia is the choice
for Governor of Jacobs, the Independ
ent Domocratic candidate, by a small
majority. The Constitution is adopt
ed by a decided vote, and there is a
Democratic majority in both branches
of the Legislature. This is a thorough
. Deroocratic|and Conservative triumph,
and one that stretches into November
and the Presidential contest, as Mr.
Jacobs is a strong Greeley man, and
will support him in the coming fight.
Pere Hyacinthe has written a long
letter concerning and defending his
recent marriage, is published else
where. The reverend priest delcaree
it to be the farthest from his intention
to renounce bis high calling, and
claims, with many arguments ap
pended to show the justness of his
claim, that marriage and the priest
hood are by no means antagonistic,
and that his step has not beeu incon
siderate or hasty or notoriety-seeking.
Benj. Shafer.
The radicals are trying to prejudice
democratic voters agaiust Benj. Sha
fcr our nomiuce for Sheriff, because
he does not belong to this side of the
county. That is all bosh, aud no
good democrat will be silly enough to
give it attention for one moment.
The proper questions for considera
tion are: Is Mr. Shater honest; is he
capable ; is he a consistent democrat.
All of these can be answered with an
emphatic AYE, and that will satisfy
Because the nominee is not from
this side, certainly is not Mr. Shafer's
fault, for some of our delegates helped
to make his nomination, and he was
among the best of all the candidates
out. But if there really were any
blame in this matter, our own people
are to blame and not Mr. Shafer. If
this side learns to keep united when it
thinks it ought to have one of its men
nominated, that will bring about the
desired ra-ult; but if we are divided,
as a matter of course the result will be
different, and who, but our own peo
ple, are to blame? But, this silly stuff
is| not worthy further attention, and
we know that no intelligent democrat
will be led to vote against so good a
man as Benjamin Shaier, by such thin
radical stuff.
The Republican, not finding any
thing damaging to say against Benj.
Shafer, our candidate for Sheriff
sneers at him as "old Shaf." Mr.
Shafer is not nn old man, but in the
prime of life, and is bodily constituted
to handle such big burly fellows as
Brown and such, when he becomes the
next Sheriff.
1 Gov. Bigler desires to meet hit old dem
ocratic friends of Pennsvallcy. The ex

A Ticket Without t Flaw
The democrat* can boast of a ticket,
this year, upon which the radical*
thus far, have tried iu vnin to pick a
flaw. I*t them try from president
down to the last nominee upon our
County ticket, and show any thing, iu
the character of any gentleman whose
name stands there, which is disreputa
Against Greeley the radicals dorr
not aud euit not snv any thing, fur the
reason that they worshipped him so
long themselves ami followed his lead
fur the last thirty years. Nu flaw
lluekalew they tried tu assail, but
failed. The lJoloombe-Canada story,
died iu its cradle. The Fishiug creek
confederacy has been proveu a myth
by one from their own ranks, and by
the undeuiable proof furnished by Mr.
lluekalew himself in his s]teeche dur
ing this campaign. His official re
cord is a proud one for him and his
jwirty to refer to, and the radicals can
give no date and jge from it, that is
damaging, but, on the other hand, it
xhows that be was an honest and up
right public servant, in whatever posi
tion the people placed him. No flaw
found in him.
Our candidates for delegate* et
large to the ooMtitutiounl convention,
Messrs. Black, Bigler, Woodward, and
the balance, whose names arc found
at our mast bead, are gentlemen of
eminent ability aud standing, among
the pride of our stale, aud who would
grace any body that might be called t*>
meet upon this globe No flaw in any
of thcee.
Our nominee for Supreme Judge,
Hon. J a nun Thompson is one of the
foremost jurists of the laud. Pure
aud upright, great in his legal knowl
edge, he has received the endorsement
as he will the votes, of iu*ny of the
most honorable republican lawyers of
the state, on accouut of his superior
qualifications for the bench, to which
he has been an honor and an adoru
nieut for the last teu years. The
mast unscrupulous radical defamera
can find nothing with which to assail
chief justice Thompson. There is no
fiaw in him.
The radical leaders have tried to
cast a staiu upon the character of Mr.
Hartley, our nominee for auditor gen
eral, but they soon fouud themselves
defeated in all their attempts, and now
they have abandoned that, and let him
Our nominees for congressmen at
large, Jas. H. Hopkins, Kich'dVaux,
and H. B Wright, have not yet been
assailed by the radical press, so far as
our observation goes, aud for the sim
ple and good reason, that they can get
uo foot-hold there for slanders. These
gentlemen are too well known. Their
integrity is established, hence any at
tempt to assail them uuly prove futile,
and a waste of ammunition, and this
the rads are well aware of.
He nry Sherwood, our nominee for
cougress from this district, has been
tried, aud the mass of the republicans,
express themselves satisfied with his
record. 60 faithfully and well has he
represented the 18th district, that the
democracy are proud to nominate him
for re-election and the respectable por
tion of the republicahs are satisfied he
shall have a second term. He can
not be assailed- In his own home he
is immensely popular, aud received
hundreds of republican votes two
years ago, aud this w ill be swelled by
additional hundreds iu October, this
proves the worth of Mr. Sherwood. Of
course the solid democratic vote will
be given him. HURRAH FOR
Of the candidate for constitutional
delegates from this senatorial district,
Messrs. Bailey and Reed, we spoke at
length in last week's Reporter, and we
would only re-iterate the came in re
gard to those two noble gentlemen, as
there is no flaw in them.
Our nominee for assembly, John H.
Orvis, is too well known to our peo
ple to need any eulogy iu theee col
umns. The known enemy of ring*,
plunderers, political trickery and ras
cality, and the 9 million steal, and of
first claas ability, Centre county would
only be disgracing herself not to give
him her top-most vote. There is no
flaw to be picked in Mr. Orvis.
Our other nominees are all men
without flaws : We defy a flaw to be
picked upon Aaron Williams, our
uominee for Prothonotary ; or upon
John H. Morrison, our nominee for
Register; or upon Isreal Greunoble
our candidate for Recorder ; or upon
Benj. Shafer, our uominee for Sheriff;
or upon Austin Hinton, the honest son
of Snow Shoe, our nomiuee for Com
missioner ; or upon John Smith and
P. 8. Fisher, our nominees for Audit
or and Coroner.
There, citizens, is a ticket we
are proud of. It is presented to you,
honest men of Centre for your support
and if true to yourselves and your
interests, you will give it au old-fash
ioned Jackson majority. Amen.
Last week's Republican sounded a
loud blast over "Curtins position de
fined." Where the "defined" came
in, waa just about as clear as mud, and,
like hunting a needle iu a hay-stack,
so fkr M hunting a crum of comfort,
for the radicals, jn that letter was con
"Gov. Curtin's position defined," is
a good joke on the Republican, and a
draw upon its readers, which supposes
them rather green ; The Republican
will please " defiua" where Mr. Cur
tiu's position is "defined" as being ra
dically inclined in that letter.

Col- J. H. Stover.
We see by thv proceedings of the
Grant state convention of Missouri,
that Col. John H. Stover, formerly of
Aaronsburg, this county, was nomina
ted for Lieutenant governor of Mias
ouri. John seems to be a favorite
among the rads out there, but we fear
bia election to that position won't come
to pass.
Jtial an we intimated all nloug, in
the Reporter, Andrew 0. Curtin, goe
with the liberals, ami favor* the elec
tion of Greeley ami Uuekalcw. Gov.
Curtin can take no other position,
without utterly humiliating himself.
Any other course would be in favor of
his arch-enemy, Simon Cameron, who
controls Giant and llartranO.
Our distinguished fellow citiacn has
refused the bait of the radicals of this
district, who thought ly offering him
the nomination for congress, he would
be induced to pronounce for Grant.
Mr. Curtin gracefully declined, He
has now been nominated by the liberal
republicans as dolcgate-ai-large to the
constitutional eouvcutiol),and as there
will be a vacancy in the democratic
ticket, the name of Gov. Curtin will
fill the place.

The second phologtapb proves that
Hartraaft was alec ansployiag is his stock
gambling the pension mousy of widows
and orphans in the hands of Major Cal
houn, the agent in Pbialadelphia. He was
one •f Ma; . Ca Ihoun's sureties and took ad
vantage of thasituation todraw this money
out of his hnads. Calhoun dapoailed the
money with Ycrkcs for him, instoad of
ot keepiag it in the sub-lroasury
as the law requires. The result ofi
it all na* that Map r Calhoun *
accounts became entangled, and he was
rather sunimarr dismissed from the service.
Rut the prime author of his misfortune*
was John Hartranfl who soduced him
into a breach of duty. There were times,
when 11 art ran ft was using this pen-ion
money that some of the widows and or
phans ware compelled to wait in Philia
del phia for days at expense and inconve
nience for their semi-annual pittance.
Taken together, these two letters throw
a flood of light on Uartranfl's financial
operation* with the public money, and af
ford a true insight into bis character.. lie
values the auditor general's office merely
as a position which can be made available
in bis private speculations, lie acts iu if
the office was created merely for his bene
fit, end not for the public advantage and
and convenience. In his baste to become
suddenly rich without the labor of baad
ot brain, h has not hesitated to specu
late in tii* public funds and uses official
secrets U- gamble in the stocks of the cor
porations whose accounts for Uxe* axe set
tled in bis department. In ono instance,
the Oil Creek letter goes tar to prove that
he mado an official settlament with a view
to the prosperity of his pri vate|ipeculalion. j
All i* fish that comes to bis not. Whether'
it be a "lean'' from Evans or a purchase oi>
state bonds as commissioner of the Sink-'
ing Fund, or a speculation* in fancy stocks!
with the money of the treasury for a Mar-!
gin, or a raid on the widow and orphan
pension money, the same mania for be-!
coming suddenly rich by unlawful use of j
the public funds betrays itself. Such a j
man is not a model for a governor of this |
great commonwealth. Such a man would |
not be a fit succesor ofthe chief magistrate
whose virtues, whose probity, and
whoso'oxalted patriotism have shed lustre'
