The above is the regular democrat
ic electoral ticket—there is no "straight
out" or Grant-O'Cooor ticket. Dem
ocrats all to the polls on Tuesday sth.
Tho Lock Haven Republican takes
us to task for daring to refer to the
impropriety of a minister of the Goe
pel taking part in a political jubilee,
and says that clergymen have just as
good a right to do such things aa any
other class of men. We never denied
that, and admitted it, in our arti
cle to which the Republican objects,
but added that we doubted the pro
priety of such conduct on the part of a
minister of the Gospel. Will the Re
publican tell us: Is it proper for a
a clergyman to illuminate his house to
show his approbation of a demonstra
tion gotten up in hate and spite, not to
say with the direct purpose to insult
A. G. Cur tin, or any other citizen y
We admit his right to do so.
Is it proper for a clergnman to illu
minate his house to show that he goea
in favor of the Cameron-Hartranft
ring of plunders ? He has the right
to do so.
Is it proper for a clergyman to illu
minate his house and show his enthu
siasm for a man fur governor, who vis
ited the low saloons of Pittsburg—the
aute-chambers of hell—to drink lager
with men and boys in order to have
the support of the saloon keepers and
whiskey element, as did Gen. Hart
ran ft, a few days before the election,
as proven by sworn affidavits? He
has the right to do so.
A minister of the Gospel and one
who preaches temperance and against
dishonesty and wickedness, has the
right to show his approval of the meu
who are guilty of these sins, but what
we would like the Lock Haven Re
publican to do, is to show that it is in
place, and becoming for him to do so.
Voters Look.
Under Grant's carpet-bag goveroers,
the debt of nine of the most impover
ished of the southern states, has been
increased from $76,415,890 to $291,-
626,015 ; Do yoa sanction such ac
cursed villany as that ? Think, the
condition the war left those people in,
and then think of the carpet-baggers,
inflicted upon them by Grant, to steal
and plunder them of what little was
left, and run them two hundred mill
ions in debt besides! Voters of Cen
tre county—especially you, democrats
—go to the polls on next Tuesday and
vote for Greeley who has from the
start denounced this infamous policy
of Gen. Giant.
Cessna has been elected to Congress;
with his advent there, the Cborpen
ning swindle will be put upon its feet
again and a bill snaked through to
swindle the government in the Cbor
penning matter.
If Greeley is elected
Cborpenning or other swindling job
will receive the sanction of bis name.
Voters of old Centre this concerns you
as much as any one else. Will you
vote in favor of Grant and the radi
cal Chorpenning 'swindlers on next
Tuesday ?
Who DM It?
The Bellefonte Republican, of last
week contains the following :
"A Democrat, a good man—one who has
never cut his ticket—and we knew when
we say—sent, after the election, the fal
lowing dispatch to Alex K. McClure : *
Bkllxvontk, Pa., Oct. 9th, 1872
To Alex. T. MeClure, Phi? a, Pa.—Have
y£u heard the news from Centre 7 To
BP 1 with your d d Liberal Republi
cans. (Signed) A Disgusted Dkmo
cel't. .
Wo copy the above dispatch to show
the morality of, and the choice language
used by men wbo say that the wh iakey
Ring went this time with the Republican
Now why don't the Republican fur
nish the name of the author of such a
dispatch, if he knows it. We charge
it as a fraud of the Republican, until
it prints the name of the author. It
can't do that We do not believe
there is a democrat in the county in
decent enough to be guilty of having
such vulgar and profane stuff sent ov
er the wires. We corner Brown on ■
this, sure.
Gen. Grant is notoriously intemper- j
ate. Horace Greeley is just the re- <
verse. Ye Honest men, Christians, i
whom will you choose, next Tuesday ? i
Democrats, to the election on Tues
day next.
Land Stealing
Siuco 1869, under radical congress'
and with the cousent of President
Grant, over 200 million of acre* of the
public landc have been donated to
railroad corporations, free of charge,
besides some 70 milliou dollars in
bonds to the.Union Pari tic Kailroad,
which alone, with the private capital
invested, was sufficient to build the
There are still a doteu bills for fur
ther donations of land,'to rich private
corporations, which if passed, by the
radical congress and signed by Grant,
as the former laud stealings have been,
will leave scarce an acre, for poor set
tlers who must pay for every foot
they occupy.
Voter?, will you endorse that policy
of Graut, uext Tuesday, or go for the
honest farmer, Horace Greeley, who
is opposed to the gigantic land steal
ing projects?
The Money.
Voters remember, on next Tuesday,
that under Johnsons administration,
for the vear 1867-8, the whole Judi
ciary system costs<23,Bbß.s<.
In 1870, uudcr Grant, there were
squandered ou this braueh of the civil
service, $2,610,85253.
Can you endorse such squandering
as that, by a vote in favor of Grant's
re-election, next Tuesday ?
From June 30, 1867 to Juue 30,
1869, beingßhe two last jeans of Preai
dent Johnson's term, the expenses of
Congress, including books, amounted
to $6,651,074. One would really sup
pose that this was enough to pay the
way of our law makers very generous
ly ; but the succeeding Congress, the
first under the amazingly economical
regime of Gen Graut, succeeding in
wasting on their own expenses just
In the Executive Department the
increase was still greater. The last
two years of the Administration of
President Johnson, who was called all
sorts of ugly names by the radicals,
cost for this department $12,856,200
—the first two years of that pink of
radical perfection, Grant, cost $lB,-
709,472, exclusive of the two millions
expanded in compiling the returns of
the Ceasus.
Remember, honest voters, and par
ticularly you who profess to have a
love for sobriety and truth, that Gen.
Grant is an intemperate mau, and
that he was twice proven guilty of
falsehood —first, in regard to the diffi
culty with Stanton and the war office,
in which matter President Johnson
and bis entire cabinet, all of whom were
republicans, fastened the deliberate
lie upon Grant. The second, is the
charge that Schnrz made, saying that
Grant had. sent one of thekeads of
departments to him (.Schurs) to at
tempt to bribeghim with an offer of all
the patronage ha desired, if he would
support Grant's San Domingo scheme-
Grant denied that he had aent such an
officer to Mr.Schurz.upou which Gen.
Pleasanton, Grant's commissioner of
internal revenue was brought upon
the stand, and he confirmed the state
ment, in a letter that was published
at the time in the REPORTER. Grant
Honest men, can you vote for a
man, notorious for his intemperance,
and who has proven so economical
about telling the truth. Go to the
polls on next Tuesday, sth. and vote
aa honest conscience dictates, remem-
Bering that Horace Greeley is a mod
el of temperance, and has not been
caught in deliberate falsehood.
Only One Ticket.
There is now only one democratic
electoral ticket in the field, for the
presidential election, on next Tuesday
stb, and that is the one at the head of
this paper. The straight-outs, or O'-
Conor men, met at Harrisburg, last
week, and adjourned without making a
straightout ticket They will undoubt

lar democratic convention, at Read

way in which the people ofSouth Caro

about it; but here a parcel of politi
cal loafers conspire to filch the last
penny from the Treasury of an impov
erished Btate, and, as tney all go for
Grant, they are pronounced pure pa
triots !
Bill Brown, in last week's "Repub

democracy of old Centre, and makes a
loud boast of carrying tbe county for

The fellows who hud to get Yerkes

to shame by giving an increased ma

Is it right that a family of non-cnti

Xo Faltering Now.
Manliness, patriotism, and duty to
our liberal allies, demand that we shall
not falter now in the battle for right-
It matters not that a corrupt majority
was cast against us at the stale elec
tion. The enemy has exhausted him
self in that struggle. His money is
spent, his tricks are played, his frauds
are laid open to the day. Now, let
freemen assert their rights, unbribed
by gain, unawed by power, and un
swayed by the fear of defeat.
Historical Questions and Ans
The Philadelphia Evening Herald;
puts the following pointed questions
and answers :
Firit Strict. —Does the Presidential
history of the United Stales record a
single instance in which the incum-J
bent of the highest office in the gift of
the people was a habitual frequenter
of horse-races ? Yes, one ; Ulysses 8.
Doe* thia same history point to an
instance where a President appointed
all his relatives to office ? \ es, one,
and only one ; Ulysses S., Grant.
Does it note a case in which a Pres
dent was made a millionaire by the
gifts of office-seekers ? Yea, one ;
Ulysses 8. Grant
I)oe it record anywhere the fact
that the Presidential' office enriched
its incumbent f Yes, one, and only;
one ; Ulysses S. Grant
Does it make mention of any Presi-,
dent who held stock in stone quarries,
from which all the stone used on the
government work at Washington, was
furnished? Yes, one; Ulysses B,'
• Does it till of any President who
sought to carry State elections by bay
onet ? Yes, one ; Ulysses 8. Grant.
See Goveruor Geary's annual message
in 1870.
Does it record the fact that any
President deeming tbe schools of the
United Btates not sufficiently thorough
in their system, sent hit son to Eu
rope to have him educated ? Yes, one
Ulysses 8. Grant.
Is it recorded anywhere in Presi
dential history that a convention com
prised almost wholly of Federal of
ficials renominated tbe tenant of the
White House ? Yes, one ; Ulysses B.i
Tbe black cadet at Annapolis trod

The Pittsburg newspapers announce
tbe death of ex-Governor William F.

noon last. Governor Johnston was
the democratic and liberal candidate
for congress in the twenty-third dis
trict, and took part in the canvass un
til prostrated by the disease which ter

Tho l'atriol says: Tho vote for
Ifartranft may b set down iu rouud
numbers at 851,000 and that for •
Ituckalew al 310,000. Tho full ollt- 1
cial vote will not materially vary thin 1
statement. Now let these figures tie '
compared with the returns of tke l'rea- ■
idential election in 180 H.
Four years ago Grant's volo in this J
stale was 34'2,'i00, showing an increase
0f8,720 for llartranft over Grant;]
Seymour's vote was 313,382, allowing
an increase for lluckalew over Sey
mour of 2,618.
Four years ngo Grant received CO
- votes in i'hiladelphta. llartrauft
jis given 09,278 in the returns of thai
city, a gain of 8,113 over Grant's vote
or within a few buudred of the eulirc
gain iu the slate f>r llartranft over!
Grant iu Philadelphia of 14,925.
They also show that Ituckalew gained
,9,000 votes outside of the city o? Phil
delphia over the vota for Seymour, be
.cause he made up for the loaa of 6,332
Jiu Philadelphia and 2,618 over.
Extending this view we find that
iabout 17,000 negroes have added their
ballots to the while radical vote of
1868. Of these 12.000 were polled
outside of Philadelphia. In this esti
mate we do not include the impor
tations form Virginia and Maryland.
While wo do not claim that the ru
ral districts did their Aill duty at the
late election, but, ou the coutrary ad
mit that they It'll far short of what
was reasonably ex net ted, we assert
that the defeat of Mr. lluckalctv lies
maiuly at the door of Philadelphia.
This assertion is full v sustained by the
figures just giveu. K'ow, the election
iu Philadelphia is considered the
country over as an unmitigated farce,
a libel on republican institutions, a
black aud damning spot in tbe annals
of Pennsylvania politics. The cor
ruption aud perversion of tbe ballot
iu that citv having been the principal
cause of the result iu the Stale, the
verdict of Pennsylvania has not been
honestly and fairly recorded. It is a
barefaced cheat from beginning to
eod. Will the proud people of Penn
sylvania stand mute under this bitter
insult to their manhood ? Will they
permit tbe impudent swindle perpetra
• ted iu their name by an audacious
I ring to paw uurebuked ? God of Jus
tice ! Is there no puoishroeut for the
• demons in human shape whose pres
ence here depopulates the inferual pit
.aud neopels the land with thieve* and
- murderers who seize and control tbe
' ballot-box ?

This is precisely what Casey, the
President's brother-in-law—who has
been retained in office as Collector of
the Port of New Orleans in spite of
his proven dereliction and incapacity
—admits that he did. In his letter to
the Secretary of the Treasury (Novem
ber 23, 1871), on the subject of the
Coutourte frauds, be says :
I commenced this InvMiigation on the
night of the flrrt day I took charge of tbia
office (April 12, 1800), and in ten day*
from that date I war fully lalirfled o! the

[From iliu Manchester (N. U.l Union]
The New York World my*; "There i |
a story which hiu long been current in
miliUry circles of a curtain captain of the
fourth UnituU Hut** Infantry, who, being
itatloncd on tho I'acillc coast some twenty
yearn ago, repeatedly li-graced bimselt by •
being found drunk when on duty. Ilia au- '
pcrior officer, long unwilling to ruin him,
finally found liiuuulf obliged to lake duel' !|]
tiva lep. Iln t ailed thu delinquent before L
him, and insisted upon his giving in hie •
written resignation. "1 altall not use thi*. *
aid the Colonel, unless you coni|iel me to
by again publicly bringing scandal upon j
the service." In that case I altall instant
ly forward it to Wa<hinglon." The story
runt that after no great lapse of time the ■
unhappy captain one* mure lapsed, The (
threat was executed. Tho army lost an <
officer and St. Louis gained a citizen. T> 1
no man in the country can this story be',
belter known than to President Grant." ji
W<• are able to state the facts alluded to I
above with exactness, and we think it is
our duty to do so. While sojourning ati
Washington in IHtiT, we met a gentleman 1
who was an officer in that regiment at the '
time referred to. Its commander was Col
onel, afterwards General, Buchanan, who
commanded at New Orleans for some time 1
during the late war. The captain referred
to was Lieutenant Ulysses* 8. Grant. llis i
dissipation was shocking and |>erpetuai,
and finally culminated, at a public dinner ]
of the officers, in an offence—nameless
here -so fisgrant and revolting that Colo- I
nel Buchanan gave to Grant the alterna
tive of resignation or a courtmartial. Of
course he preferred tho former, and resig- J
ed, as affirmed above. The Colonel agreed
to hold it until Grant got drunk again, '
which was very soon, and it was then for- j
warded to the Department. Our infor
mant says that Grant then left the camp, <
Sand lived for some time in most abject
degradation among the neigboring Indi- ;
ans. rhen he went to Sen Francisco and
opened a billiard saloon, which he kept
till he "run himself out," when he sailed
for New York. Now let us meet biiu in
New York : lie arrived without a dollar,
lie sent to an officer in command in the
harbor—and we bave this from that offi
cer's own lips-to come to tho city and
meet him. He did to, and supplied him
with money to reach hit wife's relative* in
Missouri, and not one cent of the money
'was ever refunded. His career in Mit
; souri while living on the farm of his father
(in-law, was simply awful. Wo will not
{ now say what we know to be true in regard
Jto it We only add, if required to 'match
it," in depravity and degradation, we
could not do it iu the limit* of our acquain-i
| tance. We know he carried tho same hab
its into the army, and webelievo that a]
hundred thousand of bis own men were
needlessly sacrificed in consequence, and
I we can show when and where and how,
with abundance of contemporary testimo
ny, which we will produce if anybody
wants it. We sincerely believe that Grant
is not fit for any public position whatever,
intellectually or morally, and that it our
people knew the simple truth iu regard to
him he would not get an honest vote. Let
, such voters make it their business to learn
j before they commit the fatal error of voting
' for him again.
