We have just been informed that
letters have boeu sent out to leading
democrats, with the name ol the editor
of this paper to them, stating that wo
area candidate for Assembly. All
such letters are base forgeries, aud
were gotten up by and in tki interest
of a candidate and clique who a|H>lo
gixed for aud defended the Lvtie-
Chambers forgery. The* object is to
mislead democrats into votiug instruc
tions for the editor of this |>apcr tor
Assembly, so as to cut up the vote ot
other candidates and thus aid one on
this side who generally drills with a
clique at Bellefoute : aud '2nd, to uiak
us appear in the light of a secret,
scheming candidate, and thus draw
upou us the eutuity of the other can
didates now iu the field. Every one
can easily discern where such things
originate aud in whose behalf the tor
gory is worked. We have written uo
such letter or letters whatever, nor
authorized any one to do so. Due ol
these forged letters was sent to our
friend Col. Riahel, of Gregg. and we
understand to a number of others.
The best evidence of this letter oe
ing a forgery is, that it is legible,
whereas if it were written by os, t 01.
Rishcl could scarce make head nor
tail out of it The Col. has promised
to send it to us, and, will publish the
forged epistle next week.
The democracy of the entire stata
are calling upou oar district to elect
Mr. Wallace to the senate, where lie
has beeu the able democratic leader
for a number of years. His presence
there at this time is all the more im
portant, in view of the legislation
needed to conformity with the new-
Constitution. No mau in the state is
so well-fitted for the place as Mr.
Wallace, his experience, ripe states
manship, known integrity, and dis
gust for riugs, have ceutered npou
him the eyes of every honest democrat
and republican in Pennsylvania aud
hence they hope for his return to the
senate by the honest aud upright
voters of the district composed of the
counties of Centre, Clearfield and
Clinton. Mr. Wallace, in his entire
career as a senator has devoted all bis
talents and energies to the enactment
of wholesome laws, and for the good
of the people. He never cast a vote
or supported a measure that had about
it the odor of corruption. He always
battled and defeated such schemes,
thus taking the same stand in favor of
right in the senate as Mr. Orvis did
iu the House. For this the people of
our state call upon the district to elect
Wni. A. Wallace to the senate.
Clearfield county will pronounce
for bini at her delegate elections.
Clinton county will instruct her
delegates for.Mr. Wallace.
Will Centre listen to the demands
of the people and follow the good ex
ample of the sister counties of the
district ?
Democrats of Centre, cau you do a
nobler act than cast your instructions
for Mr. Wallace? If you vote for
instructions for Senator, on the day of
the delegate election, will you remem
ber that duty to your party, and to
the state, demands that you rote to
instruct for Wro. A. Wallace for Sen
ator ? *
We see from the Jour
nal, the democratic organ of Union
county, that the democracy of that
county will not present a candidate
for congress, and that the leading
democrats in Union county couceed
the nomination to Mackey. An effort
had been made to get out a candidate
there, by suggesting the name of
Judge Walls, but the judge had too
good sense to be led into such a
scheme. An effort was also made to
get out a candidate in Elk, and a
"prominent editor of Centre county"
wrote a letter to Mr. Hall, of Elk,
advising him to be a candidate, hut
Mr. Hall aud the democrats up there
know that the nomination right-fully
belongs to Col. Mackey, and hence
Elk county could not be led into a
schismatic scheme agaiiißt the choice
of the people of the district, L. A.
Ibe Elk Co. Gazette publishes an
able article in favor of Col. Mackcy,
for Congress. It is seldom the people
of a district are so earnest in desiring
the nomination of any gentlemen, as
in the case of Mr. Mackev. ilis
splendid run a few years ago *ho wed
who he was: We will copy the arti
cle of the Gazette in our next.
That staunch old democratic organ
the Erie Observer calls upon the de
mocracy of this district to elect Mr.
Wallace to the senate. This is the
voice of the unanimous democracy of
the State. We trust Centre county
will know her duty to herself, the
State and to one of her noblest sous.

the office that should be revered and
not the weak, erring man who fills it.

tic favor in most of the counties ot tlie j
district are accumulating Our article
of the Oth instant has been general!)
copied, and bns met with no opposition
save front the llellefonte Watchman,
which precedes the article with the
following paragraph
"At the request of soutu of Mr
Mackcv's friends in Cliutou county,
we publish the following fruit the-1
Clinton Democrat of the IHh inst.
While it shows that Mr. Maoko tua\
be exceedingly popular, worthy and j
well qualified for the position, it d. <-

The Watchman says "it dew* m>l
prove that Cliuton county is entitled,
us a matter of right, to the imiuina*
tiou," and then proceeds to press Mr.
Alexauder. Clinton does not seek to
place herself above her sister counties
of the district, ami meets them on an
(-quality ; but cue of the comities has
got to get the rumination, ami Cliutou
thinks that there are very „"H>d rea
sons whv it should come to her, and
why it should be given to Mr. Mack
ey, and those masons have mtt with
:roog iufornial approval in a major!
' tv of the counties of the district.
sio far as Centre county is concern
ed, we claim that Cliuton's claim is
j the strongest by far, and will he so
' pressed. There are three district can
didates to elect this tall —Congress-
; man, Judge, and Senator. Centre
asks and is conceded the Judgeship, she
claims the Congressman, and is put
ting iu for the {senator. This looks
like "going the whole hog." Cliuton
denies the right of Centre to gobble
up all that's on the table. She calls
for the Congressional slice for the rest
of the district, and asks that she he
given it for the first term, aud pre
sents au acceptable gentleman for the
nomination. The request is reasona
ble, and we have strong belief that it
j will be muted.
The Elk Democrat of last week
comes up finely to the sup|R>rl of Mr.
Mackey, and publishes another article
| in his support, from which we extract
i the following:
We urge the nomination of Mr.
; Mackey, as the Democratic Congres
isional nominee, and for these reasons,
'and others, which we shall present
| hereafter:
His life has beeu one of rectitude,
and we need houesty.
His management of important ft
■ uaneial trusts has displayed a thorough
! practical and theoretical knowledge of
1 the intricacies of bauking and the
laws governing finance.
As a lawyer he is noted for his
forensic abilitv.
As a counsellor he is known as a
| sagacious man, and a man of probity
1 and forethought.
Should he be nominated he will
gather about the ticket a host of
friends who will add strength to the
party and lend encouragement to its
! principles.
It is in such a time as this that we
Deed men to represent the people —not
a clique—but the whole people, and
we know that Mr. Mackey is not the
one to assume a duty he will not dis
j charge with fidelity. Let the people
| consider these facts, and let them,
through their delegates, act upon them
, in convention, and our word for it,
j tbev will has* iu the House of Rep
resentatives a man who will honor
them as they shall have honored him.
All over the State the political pot
is beginning to simmer and iu a short
time will be boiling. In n few coun
ties nominations have already been
made, but most of the local tickets
will not be iu the field until near the
close of next month. Then both par
ties will aiso hold their State Conven
tions and an exciting campaign will
The Democrats are most hopeful
and confidently expect to carry the
State. Only the most gross blunder
ing can prevent the complete triumph
of the party opposed to extravagance
uud corruption in the administration
of public affairs. The people seem at
last to have had their eyes opened to
the necessity of transferring political
power to other hands than those who
now hold the reins of government.,
That the change may be thorough |
and complete in 1876, they find j
it imperatively necessary to com
mence the work of reform at ouce. To
this end the Democratic press is urg
ing the most careful seiectiou of can
didates, not only those for State offi
cers, but also for all local positions of
honor or trust. Indeed, this is the
only way that success can be assured
Hiid wherever this good advice is dis
regarded and weak, incapable, dis
honest, untrustworthy selections are
made, defeat and disaster will be sure
to follow. We are glad to see our
party press thus boldly pointing out
the course that will lead to success
and as fearlessly remonstrating against
nominations "not fit to he made."
No one should be permitted to go on
a ticket that will weaken it. The
success of the party is far above the
special claims of any aspirant to par
ty favor. Personal considerations
should alio in all cases be cast aside
and the strongest and best men only
put forward to carry tha party's ban
ner. This done in every county,
Pennsylvania will be redeemed from
Radical misrule and the good old
times of ecouomy, honesty and good
government soon restored. — Perry

Fifth—That pastoral visits maue Ly the '
Rev. Henry Ward Heecher to Mr Tilt n
durir.g the year IbCB bc-antc so frequent
as to excite comment, being in marked i
contrast with bis know n hab.i ut making
, fey pastoral calls on bis parishioners,
which frequency in Mrs. Tilton's case is
shown in letters written lu i,c. tic band !
during his absence in the \VcL These l

Tilton's return to bis borne.
Siith Thst previous to the aforesaid
criminal intimacy one of the reasons
w hich hi re. Tiiton alleged for her encour
agement of such eireptiona! attention j
iron. tUe Rev. llenry Ward lteecher was
the fact that she bad inm h distressed

The First Suspicion.
Seventh—That the first suspicion which
crossed the mind of Theodore Tiiton that
tlif Rev. Henry Ward lioechcr was abus
ing or might abuse the affection and rev
erence which Mrs. Tiltoti bore towards her
pastor was an improper caress given by
Becehor to Mrs. Tilton by • • • • •
which seated by her side on the floor of his
/brary overlooking engravings. Tilton,
a few hours afterwards asked of his wife
an explanation of her permission of such
' liberty, whereat hc at first denied the tact
but then confessed it and said she hnd
spoken chidingly to Bcechor concerning
jit. On another occasion, Tilton, after
I leaving bis house in early morning re
! turned lo i'r in the forenoon, and on going
to his bed ciiumhur sound the d°Pf locked,
and when, on knocking, tiio door was
opentdby Mrs. Tilton, Beccher wus soeii
within apparently much confused and ex
hibiting a flushed face Mrs. Tilton after
wards made a plausible explanation, which
from the confidence reposed in her by her
husband was by him Jeemrd satisfactory.
highlit—Thi}t in the spring of 1870, oil
Tilton's return from a winter's absence,
lie noticed in his wife such evidences oi
absorption of her mind in Beccher that in
a short time an estrangement look place
between her husband and herself, in con
-•i,nance "f which she went into the coun
try'earlier than usual for her summer so
jnurn. After an nbsence of several weeks
she voluntarily returned to her homo in
Brooklyn on the evening of July 3, 1870,
when, then and there, within a few hours
after hor arrival, and after exacting from
her husband
A Solemn Promise
that he would do the Rev. Henry Ward
Beecher no harm, nor communicate to him
what she was about to say, she made a cir
cumstantial confession to her husband of
the criminal facts hereinbefore stated, ar
guments and reasonings with her to over
come her long-maintained scruples against

She slated furthermore that Mr licet her
habitually characterised lhait intimacy by
the term
"Neat lliiillig,'
ami be would sutler pain and sorrow if bis it secret were ever Uiade known.
She said that tier mind wasofteu burdened

ther anxieties Affectionately,
On the next day, namely, llmnber SI,
IS7O, Mouiton, on being informed by Til
ton of the above named transaction by
Beethcr, called on liiut ' Ucochcrt at bit
residence, and told him that tl.c reioncili
ation so suddenly made was impossible, by
Bcechcr't nefarious act in procuring a let
ter which Mrs. Til ton had thus been im
properly persuaded to make falsely.
Heccber promptly, threugii Ueultoc, rc
turned the letter to Tilten, with an ex
pression of shame and sorrow for having
procured it in the manner he did.
Text of the Letter.
The letter was as follows:
December 30, ls7o.
Wearied uith unpurtiipity and weakened
by slekness, 1 gave a loiter implicating my
friend, Ilcnry Ward Ueechor, under as
surances that that would remove all ditll
culties between me and my husband. That
letter I now revoke. 1 was persuaded to
it. almost forced, when I was in a weaken
ed state of mind. I regret it, and recall
all its statements.
(bigi id) K. K Tit. TON.
1 desire to say explicitly, Mr. JJocchor
has never offered any improper solicitation,
hut has always treated mo in a manner be
coming a Chriition and a gentleman.
(Signed) K. R.TILTON.
At the time of Beecher's returning the
nbove document to Tilton through M ul
ten, Becclier requeued Mouilon to call at
his residence in Columbia street on the
next day. which ho did on the evening of
January 1, 1871 A long Interview then
ensued in which Beecher expressed to
Moulton great contrition and remorso for
ids proyiops crin inality with Mrs. Tilton,
taking l.> hium-lf thapie for hayjng luis
used his sacrud office as a (.lergyman to
corrupt her mind, expressing a determina
tion to kill himsell In ease of exposure,
and begging Moulton to take a pen and
receive from bis (Beecher'*) lips an apolo
gy to be conveyed to Tilton in the hope
that such appeal would secure Tilton's
Iteeoher'a Apology.
The apology which Beecher dictated to
Moulton was as fellows; "In trust with
F. I) M oulton. My dear friend Moulton
1 ask through you, Theodore Tilton's for
giveness, and I humble myself before him
as |d > before my God. He would have
been u better man in my circumstance*
than I have been. I call ask nothing ex
cept that be will remember all tho other
breasts that would ache. 1 will not plead
for myself. J oven wish that J were dead,
but other* mutt live to suffer, i will die
before any one but myself shall be incul
pated. All my thought* are running out
towaid my friend and toward the poor
child lying there and praying with her
folded hands. She is guiltless, sinned
against, hearing the transgression of an
oilier Her forgiveness 1 have. I humbly
prav to God to put it into the heart of her
husband to forgive me. 1 have trusted
this to Moulton in confidence.
