Union Republicans of Huntingdon
County, Will you Permit the 'Mon
itor' Desperadoes to use you to De
ieat your Party and its Candidates,
Be Not Deceived by Falsehoods.
Union Republicans, and independent
voting Democrats, in all our experience
as an editor we have never known of
a more desperate attempt being made
to destroy the character of a good and
worthy citizen than is now being made
by the editor of the Monitor and his
"aids" to. destroy the unimpeachable
character of our bravo soldier candi
date for Sheriff, Capt. 1). It. P. NEELY.
Why they should make him a special
mark of attack with all the vile false
hoods they can hatch, may not be un
derstood by the careless observer of
the political workings of parties. The
office of Sheriff is an important office,
as well in time of pease as in time of
rebellion, and if Seymour and Blair
should be elected it might be impor
tant to the Blair revolutionists to have
one of their party filling the Sheriff's
office in this and every other county in
the loyal North. We do not say that
Mr. Africa is not a loyal man, but we
do say that he is a co-worker with dis
loyal men, and if elected ho would feel
in duty bound to net with his party
and be influenced by its loaders. Mr.
Africa's character as a citizen,- is
unimpeachable; politically he occupies
the position of an earnest party man,
and it is fair to suppose if elected ho
would act with his party no matter
where the leaders might lead. After
diligent inquiry from neighbors of
Capt. Neely, men who have known
him from boyhood up, we cannot learn
anything else than that he as a citizen
has as unimpeachable a character as
can bo claimed for his opponent Mr.
Africa, the falsehoods of his political
opponents and their few secret "aide"
to the contrary notwithstanding.
Bat Capt. Neely must be defeated,
or at least his majority must bo redu
ced some hundreds below the party
vote! The Democrats say it must be
done. If they cannot defeat him• they
will be satisfied if they can reduce his
majority so as to show that he was
"cut" by a "faction" of his own party.
Then at the next election they will
call on the friends who stood by the
Captain and voted the whole ticket,
to "cut" the "faction" that opposed the
regular nominees this fall, and by con
tinuing at the same ganio they expect
I so to disorganize the Union Republican
party of the county that they will in a
short time be able to elect their own
men with but little difficulty. Their
plan to disorganize and finally to de
feat the Republican party is a sharp
enterprise—but it cannot bo success
ful without tho aid of Republicans, and
we cannot think any Republican with
his oyes open will lend himself as a tool
to work out the defeat of his own par
ty. If Republicans want an excuse to
vote against Capt. Neely they should
bo honest enough to borrow ono from
some other source than the Monitor.
If they can believe the Monitor false
hoods against Neely, it would be as
convenient for them to believe its
falsehoods against Grant. Capt. Nee
, ly is the Union Republican nominee—he
is a man of 'unimpeachable character as
a citizen—was a brave soldier in the
field against rebels and their sympathi
zers—and is worthy the vote of every
Union Republican, and independent
Democrat in the county.

Republicans of Iluntingdon county

tickets now in circulation in every dis

Republican tickets have been printed,
with the single exception that the
name of William Africa occupies the
place that should be occupied by David
R. P. Neely, Be not deceived into the
support of such a ticket: See for your
selves before you vote that you have a
full Republican ticket. Some of the
spurious tickets are in the bands of
men claiming to be good Republicans,

who should make themselves active on

Was he a despot when ho compelled

would say Gen. Leo was a patriot and
Gen. Grant was a despot—but we were
not prepared to believe that a Demo

THE MONITOR'S BIG LIE.
Look Out for More of the Same Size.
The Editor Arrested and Bound Over
The Monitor of -last week published
an article as - editorial, charging Capt.
Neely with being beastly drunk in this
place on tho Wednesday night previ
ous. Wo give one paragraph of the ar
ticle that our readers who do not see
the Monitor may have an idea of the
kind of lying our soldier candidate has
to run against—it is as follows:
"It now becomes our humiliating
duty—we say humiliating because we
aro related to Capt. Neely by closer
ties than ordinary business or friend.
ship—to warn the good people of this
county against casting their suffrage
for David E. P. Neely, for on Wed
nesday night last he was beastly drunk.
During the day he put in his time in
trading knives, and at 10 o'clock, p.
m., commenced his drunken spree and
kept it up until past midnight, when
nature would stand it no longer, and
sick with vomiting, the 'temperate'
Captain was laid away for the night."
Now when wo tell our readers that
there is not 'a word of truth in the char
ges of the editor against Capt. Neely,
what can they think of such a paper
and the man or men who control its
columns. We were iu town during
every hour Capt. Neely was here, and
not until the Tuesday following was
there a word uttered by anybody char
ging Capt. Neely with being drunk
here. We have seen some gentlemen
who were in Capt. Neely's company
on Wednesday evening until he went
to bed, and they all say he was not
drunk—that they did not believe ho
had tasted liquor during the evening
or night. The Captain himself has
told us that ho did not taste ally kind
of liquor during the day or night. The
Captain is not a drinking man, and we
aro very sure that wo run no risk in
venturing the assertion that there is
not a respectable or responsible man
in the town or county who will, under
oath, say that Captain Neely is a drunk
ard or was drunk or under the influ•
once of liquor on the Wednesday night
referred to. Tho Monitor man and his
"aids" must indeed be anxious to de
feat Captain Neely when they will re
sort to such low filthy lying. They
expected that they would not be inter
fered with—that they could lie as much
as they pleased, but the Captain has
put his foot down and now they must
be satisfied with the course of law and
justice. Capt. Neely, on Saturday
last, had the editor of the hfonitor ar
rested, and bound over to Court to an
swer for libel, and be is determined to
put all others guilty of retailing the
slander through the same "course of

in an address to the Democracy of
"Now, what is it that the Democrats
propose if they obtain the power?
They propose the restoration of peace
by giving back the government of the
Southern States into the hands of men
of our own . race, that created those
Mr. Blair moans by this sentiment
that if ho should be elected Vice Presi
dent that the Government of the South
ern States will be given back into the
hands of such men as Hampton, For
rest, Semmes, Vance, Wise and others,
who are now clamoring to obtain that
power. All their crimes of treason and
rebellion aro to bo forgiven and for
gotten; they aro to bo treated as if
they had never rebelled; they aro to
be placed in the same positions they
were before the war whore they may
bo permitted to hatch over their
schemes of breaking up the Union;
they are to bo given all they wanted
when they sounded the tocsin of war
and fired on Fort Sumter; their devo
tion and inhuman treatment of our
Union soldiers is to be forgotten,
and they are to be permitted to rule
over the loyal men of the land.
Such is to be the situation of affairs
if Frank Blair is made Vice President,
and Horatio Seymour President. This,
he says, is the way the Democratic
party propose to restore - peace. When
peace is to come at such a sacrifice as
this, then indeed will the Democratic
professions that the war was a failure
bo true; then may the South, again or
ganized under its old leadsrs, re-assert
its dogmas, re-establish negro slavery,
and pave the way for a final separation
from the Union. Loyal men, can you
trust the Democratic party with pow.
or in a time like this, and when the
rebels aro bold in declaring that they
will get all they want when that party
gots in power ? This question we leave
you to decide at the ballot-box in Octo
ber and November.
ltEty-The utmost vigilance will be no
treasury on the part of the Republicans,
to guard against fraudulent voters at
the October election. - Squads of new
comers are making their appearance
in this and many of the adjoining
counties. These movements of strang
ers and carpet baggers aro not of
chance. There is a purpose to be ex
ecuted, and it is the duty of Vigilance
Committees to see that no fratidulent
means aro used to reduce our majori
ty. The presence of those men, at
such a time, and under the circum
stances detailed to us, is sufficient to
put Republicans on their guard. By
placing those squads of carpet-baggers
under strict surveillance, they can be
prevented from voting should the at
tempt bo made.
.11ED - We have been credibly inform
ed by citizens of Barree that some few
of our town Democrats were very ao
tive at the camp mooting in that town
ship in retailing the Monitor's lies
against Capt. Neely. They could have
been engaged in a better business.
GET OUT EVERY LINTON VOTE
Has the "Monitor" Substantiated its
At the conclusion of the Monitor's
article charging Captain Neely with
drunkenness is the following para•
"IC we cannot substantiate our assertion, within threo
days from this dude (bopt. 29th, 1 P. 11.,) we will forfeit
twenty-fire dollars, and Mee publish the proof of the
falsehood of our assertion in our columns next weak."
Now, we aro not a lawyer, and don't
know exactly how a lawyer would
take hold of the proposition of the edi
tor—but wo suppose ho had the liberty
at any time during the three days to
"substantiate" his' assertion. Has he
done so—if - not, will ho pay over the
$25 and take back the falsehood? On
the last day of the three the editor
"slid," and remained away until the
three 'days wore up. Perhaps he had
an eye on saving the $25 which wore
in danger if he had remained at home.
But we aro not particular about trifles
—the important question is, has he
substantiated his assertion ? Up to
this time, (Tuesday morning,) nobody
has hoard of any proof being offered by
the editor to substantiate his assertion.
His assertions hereafter will bo worth
less, and we aro glad the enemies of
Captain Neely have so early and open
ly exposed the game they are deter
mined to play until the day of election.
Republicans of the county, you will be
perfectly safe in pronthincing FALSE
every assertion the Monitor may make
against any one of your candidates.—
Wallace has given it a license to LIE
to the extent of the abilities of its edi
tor. Outside of politics wo believe Mr.
Coalman Can and will toll the truth,
but in politics, judging from tho past,
we don't believe it, would be safe to be
lieve a single word that may come
from his lips or his pen.
Gen. Frank P. Blair delivered a
speech in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night
last in which ho says he did write the
Broadhead letter, and he reiterated
that the reconstruction acts are "null
and void" and that the President of the
United States should maintain the
Constitution and see that the laws are
not allowed to be executed. lie pro
claimed boldly that if Mr. Seymour is
elected it will be his duty to support
the rebel leaders in their insolent de
mands; aid them in forcibly resisting
the laws; turn Congress out at the
point of the bayonet, and treat it only
as a "Rump," the "fragment of a Con
gross;" and, regardless of consequen
ces, instal the rebels and reverse the
verdict of the war.
All these things Blair does not hes
itate to avow. Not Wade llampton,
or Forrest, or any rebel whatever, has
yet uttered sentiments so revolutionary
and dangerous as aro contained in
Blair's Tuesday night speech—a speech
that was applauded as the genuine doc
trine. It is the doctrine, we may he
sure, that will shape the policy of the
administration of Seymour, should the
Democrats triumph—rather of Blair,
for who believes that Blair would not

OVERDOING THEIR DIRTY WORK.-
The maliciously false charges of the
Allonitor against Capt. Neely are driv_
ing honest men of the Democratic par
ty in every part of, the county over to
his support. Republicans too, warm
personal friends of Mr, Africa, who in
tended to vote for him, now declare
they will vote for Capt. Neely because
of the unjust abuse of a bravo soldier
by the warm party friends of the Dem
ocratic candidate. The friends of
Gen. Grant cannot be used by the so
called Democracy to aid in defeating
one of his brave soldiers. When the
election is over, and Capt. Neely is de
clared elected, as ho will be, his ene
mies will hang their heads in shame
for the dirty part they performed to
defeat him. They will then feel how
low they stooped to conquer.
.John S. Miller expects to be
elected—at least so he says. Well, if
Republicans in this .Roprosentative dis
trict can vote for him to defoat Sand.
T. Brown, one of the beet men in the
district, they will be prepared to do
most anything else. We could as soon
think that Republicans could vote for
Seymour to defeat grant, as to think
it possible for Republicans to vote for
Miller to defeat Brown. The idea can
not be entertained for a moment—a
United States Senator will be elected,
next winter, and the Republican who
votes for Miller or Taylor votes for a
so-called Democrat for United States
Senator for six years. Good Union
Republicans can't be caught in such' a

cause he had said in a letter that Re-.
publican reconstruction in the South
ern States should be upset by the bay
onet. The Blair spirit is at work in
the Southern States. Every day we
see accounts of Republican meetings
being disturbed and broken up by
Rebels in arms. Their conduct now
towards the loyal people of those States
is mild to what it will be should Sey
mour and Blair be elected. Elect Sey
mour and Blair and there can be no
doubt of another rebellion. Elect
Grant and Colfax and we will have
peace, as the rebels will have poor en
couragement to continue their opposi
tion to the loyal people of the South.
y5 - The circulation of the Globe is
now some hundreds greater than it
over was, and is much larger than any
other paper in the county, and we
have noticed wherever it circulates
most general, there the most lively
party feeling prevails and the most
determined effort is making to give a
full and solid vote for the whole ticket.
WpVoto for Brown and Martin
We have cheering news from every
part of the State. Hartranft and
Campbell are popular with the peo
ple everywhere. They cannot be oth
erwise, for they wore brave soldiers in
the fight to save our country from
Rebel rule, and should they be want
ed again to face the enemy they will
bp on hand at the tapping of the drum.
Every county. promises to give an in
creased Union Republican vote over
last year—and if they do as well as
we believe old Huntingdon will do,

teen or twenty thousand.
Igiar• Gen. Geo. B. McClellan arrived
in Now York from Europe last woek.
A procession of Democrats gave him
a 'welcome home' in the evening. The
General's speech was very short—ma

proposed for Seymour and Blair; and
given, but not without many hisses
from the same men who cheered for
112Clellan. Thousands of warm friends
of Gen. McClellan will vote for Gen.
Grant—they are not ready to be han
ded over to the Rebels.
SU--lion. D. J. Morrell, our candi

course about as ho did beforo, only a
little more so. Col. Linton his oppo
nont, is a popular Democrat, was - a
good soldier, is a very clever gentle
man, but unfortunately for him ho has
hitched on with the rebels to help put
them in power again before they are
fit to be rulers over the country they
tried to destroy. Col. Linton can't

defeat a portion of our ticket. We
don't believe they can. Wo have
pledges from every district that the
party will vote the ticket so/id. There
is not a single man on our ticket can
be defeated if it receives the vote of
the party, and there is 'no good rea
son why it should not. We are of the
opinion that seine of the anxious and
easily foolod DemoeratS will be badly
disappointed when they hear from
Eis - The Monitor's "crazy boy" story
did'nt pay expenses. The "big drunk"
will pay the editor about as well.—
What next? Perhaps the Captain
will have murdered-somebody in this

per. We will at least expect to hoar
that the Captain has been doing some
thing to annoy the editor.

Republicans warned us against seces•

few prejudices. The soldiers of the

John Dovino, arrested by the police
last night for snapping a pistol as a

Six men were arrested to-day for
attempting to get assessed in wards
where they do not live, with the in
tention of duplicating the votes.
The excitement in relation to the
naturalization is increasing. Front an
examination of the records in Court
it appears that some thousands of pa

Dear Sir :—ln last week's issue of the

Capt. D. It. P. Neely With being.beast
ly drunk on Wednesday night, the 23d
of September last. I consider it a du
ty I owe to Captain Neely:who was a
brave and loyal soldier,to disprove this
base slander. Capt D. R. P. Neely was
in the store of Cunningham & Car
men, the evening in question, up
until the time of closing the store,
which was about 9 o'clock in the even•
ing. The Captain Was neither drunk
nor had he been drinking. The Moni

to vote against the soldier.

To TVilliam Lewis, Editor Globe i
Dear Sir :—ln last weeks _Monitor there
was a statement stating that Capt. D.
.R. P. Neely was beastly drunk. I
consider it a duty that I owe to a bravo
soldier to clear his character from the
foul charge brought against, him by
the Monitor.• On the Wednesday even
ing in question, Capt. Neely was in my
office with Mr. Levi Graham, of Mount
Union for about ono hour, and left the
office about half past ten o'clock in'
the evening. Up until half past 10
o'clock that evening I canibear cheer
ful testimony Capt.- Neely bad not
been drinking and was perfe,ctly. sober.
I would farther state that I have known
Capt. Neely intimately for over 12
years and during that time I never
know him to take a glass of liquor.

HUNTINGDON, Oct. 5,1868
To Wm. Lewis, Editor Globe :—Dear
Sir:—ln the Huntingdon Monitor ofthe
30th ult., I notice an article charging
that Capt. D. It. P. Neely, our candi
date for Sheriff, was "beastly drunk"
in thie town on the night of Wednes
day, the 23th ult. I cannot say that
1 am well acquainted; with Captain
Neely, but as 1 know this charge to be
unjust and unfounded I deem it My
duty to contradict it. It happened
that on the evening in question I was
called to Altoona on business, and re
turning to Huntingdon, with the 11
o'clock train I mot Capt. Neely at the
dopot. I think that 1 had met him
once before this time, and was only for
mally acquainted with him, but he rec
ognized me and walked up street with
me stating that he was stopping at the
Jackson House. The train being a few
minutes late, the Jackson House wlls
closed, whereupon I invited him to the
Morrison House, and we, remained
there together until morning, both of
us sleeping in Room No. 12. Although
the train was a few minutes late Capt.
Neely was in bed before midnight.- I
conversed witlLhirn for sonic time but
I noticed nothing in his conduct or
conversation from which I can infer
that he was under the influence of li
quor. He talked rationally : and intel
ligently and in every respect behaved
himself •in a courteous and becoming
manner. The writer. of the article
above referred to has 'certainly been
misinformed, and it is to be hoped that
ho will not hesitate, to make the nec
essary correction. For the truth of
my statement I refer to Mr. Hilde
brand, the proprietor of the Morrison
House, and if requested I will giVe the
names of other gentlemen who saW
and conversed with Captain Neely; on
the night of the 23ult.
Yours, &e., P. M. Lvir.E.
