We write this before the voting com
mences on the first day of the fight for
peace. Whatever may be the result
in the State or county to-morrow,
Tuesday, we are prepared to fight on
—fight on until the grand battle shall
be over in November. We do not ex
pect to be defeated to-morrow—but if
we should be, we do not intend to sur
render until completely surrounded by
the enemy and our last load is dischar•
ged. The country can only be saved
by bravo hearts and strong arms—
then, Union Republicans, stand . firm
and the enemy will be completely rou
ted in November. The army of rebels
that once surrendered to Grant's for
ces, must not now be permitted to
control our Government. The fight is
just the same as then—against the reb
els, their sympathizers, and their can
didates.- Union Republicans, resolve
unanimously, to keep in solid line ; and
resolve unanimously to do better in No.
iernbor for Grant and Colfax. GRANT,
COLFAX, and VICTORY I must be our
rallying cry in earnest.
The Rebels Can't Rule.
FROMIO,OOO T 016,000
We have met the enemy and they
aro ours. Tho contest of Unionism
against Treason has again triumphed,
and patriots everywhere can rejoice.
Pennsylvania will give Hartranft
from 10,000 to 15,000 majority. Ohio
will give from 25,000 to 30,000,and In
diana is . expected to give over 7,000.
Philadelphia will about hold her
ewe, which is ~000 Democratic.
In Harrisburg the Republicans have
elected Hays the Republican candidate
joy Mayor.
Allegheny comity gives a Republi
can gain of 2,000.
Mifflin county is reported to have
given 20 majority for Hartranft—a
Republics.n gain of over 200.
The probabilities are that Brown
and Martin Republican candidates for
Assembly in this district are elected.
The rzews was received in this place
with intense enthusiasm by the Re
publicans, while the Democrats went
despondently to their holes.
About fifty of onr citizens turned
out after midnight, headed by martial
music and twelve harmonicles, and
paraded our streets, awaking the na
tives. They serenaded Mr. Sam!. T.
Brown, S. B. Chaney, and others.

Let the South Reorganize its own Gov-
ernments ,
On the 30th of Juno last, Frank
31air wrote as follows to Ur. Brod
"There is but one way to restore the
Government and the Constitution, and
that is for the President elect to declare
these acts null and void, COMPEL the
army to undo its usurpation at the South,
DISPERSE the carpet-bag State Gov
ernments, allow the white people to reor
ganize THEIR 011 7. 137 governments and
elect Senators and Representatives."
It was the letter of Frank Blair's
that secured him the nomination at the
New York Convention, through the
influence of Preston, Forrest, and oth
er Rebel Generals, fresh from the
scenes of bloodshed consequent on their
rebellion against the United States
Government. We have said and still
say that this is a revolutionary letter—
one that was written to please the
Southern leaders, and one which does
please them, and they will demand, if
Seymour and Blair aro elected, that
all the sentiments expressed in the let
ter be carried into practice. Not only
aro the reconstruction acts to be de
clared null and void, but the army is
to be COMPELLED to undo its work
of keeping the South from rebelling
again; all the State Governments now
existing in the South are to be DIS
PERSED, and all the white people are
to bo allowed to re-organize THEIR
OWNgovernments, and elect Senators
and Representatives Remember that
the latter clause dons not say that the
loyal white people are to be allowed to
re organize the Government; but it
clearly and distinctly implies that the
"white people," embracing the rebels
in tote, from Jeff. Davis down to the
conscripted priva to so lately in the rebel
rank; shall ro organize their own gov
ernments, and more than that, they
shall elect Senators and Representa
tives. Loyal men of the North, can
you, will you permit sub an insult to
go unpunished ? Can you counte
nance the man that will so boldly de
clare that rebels shall rule the Govern
ernment they tried to destroy? Will
you vote to place such a man in a po
sition at the head of our Government
who will permit the rebels to set up
their own Governments, who Will com
pel the .army to undo all that it has
done in the South. If you will do this,
then go back to the rebellion—un
do all that Grant and the boys in
blue did at Vicksburg—all that the
the boys in blue did under Sherman in
his march to the sea ; ellthat our
Union Generals and bravo boys did to
suppress the rebellion—undo all that
we did to prevent secession and restore
the Union ; let the Southern people
organize their own Governments under
Jeff. Davis, and lot the South secede.
If you vote fur Seymour and Blair, you
vote for just such a state of effairs. No
reasoning man can discover anything
else than revolution in the utterances
of Frank Blair, and if he votes to place
him and his colleague Seymour in pow
er, ho is a party to the revolution that
will follow their election. Voters, re
member this on the 3d of November

Amite a useless officer, but one at the county
seat is a very important one at this time. The
Prothonotor or Register might as well be

Surveyor. The Republican candidate lives
in the most out of the way place in the whole
county, whilst the Democratic candidate re
sides at the county seat, and has his office
with J. S. Africa, one of the oldest Survey
ors in the county. The Surveyor ought to
reside at the county seat where all the papers
can be kept together, and in many cases save
vexatious delays and often pecuniary expen
ses. Thereon we the undersigned Republi
cans throwing aside all party feelings solicit

ttgL.The Democratic speakers con- I
tinuo to prate about how they intend
to pay the National debt, if they get
in power. The propose to issue one
currency, and that currency will be
tho "greenback," which is now talked
about equally as much as the "nigger."
The country is to bo flooded with
greenbacks. We will have plenty of
them, and of course they will go to
pay high prices on articles of every
description. For instance, if green
backs are issued to three times the
amount at present in circulation, we
will be obliged to pay three times the
price we now pay. Flour, by the bar
rel, which now sells at $ll and $l2,
will then sell at $33 and $36; beef, by
the pound, for which we now pay 14
cents will then be 42 cents, and butter
will go up to a dollar or more. This
a very consoling subject to contem
plate, but yet it is evenly so, for the
more greenbacks, the less gold, and
' with the decrease in the amount of
I gold there is a corresponding increase
in prices and if we have nothing but
paper money, the Democrats will issue
enough of it to increase prices on
everything throe-fold and four-fold if
necessary. The poor man will then
bo the loser, for his wages will not go
up as fast as prices, and the credit of
the Government will bo worthless. If
the National debt is to be paid in this
way, we must confess that we can't see
how it is to be done, unless as the De
mocratic platform boldly declares, a
tax is laid on "EVERY species of prop.
erly according to its value." If the la
boring man can stand a fax on his
working tools, let him vote the Demo
erotic ticket; if the farmer can stand
a tax on everything that he produces
and on his farm beside, lot him vote for
Seymour and Blair; and if there is a
voter anywhere who wants everything
ho owns of value taxed, let, him vote
the Democratic ticket, and our word
for it ho will got enough of "taxes"

Iva... Nothing in the world is more
certain than that Gen. Grant, when
he enters the White House, will take
immediate steps to insure peace in the
South. The South itself has a tolera

of accomplishing objects. it is from
this fact that a few simple words from
him declaring his intention to protect
every man in every right, will of
themselves go far to accomplish the
object. Ho will do no unnecessary
thing; but ho will do everything no.

to have peace and security in every

A heavy and impenetrable cloud will

these two conditions will follow the

How Democrats carry Electious,
Sohn Casey, an honest Irish laborer
on the Clearfield railroad, was sum
moned to appear before the Legisla
tive Investigating Committee last
winter to testify in relation to the
frauds committed at the election polls
in Philipsburg, Centre county. As' a
law abiding citizen ho came to Harris
burg and told the story in his own
honest way, which is recorded in the
Legislative Record, page 1411. It reads
as follows :
"John, Casey, sworn—l was working
on the railroad for Mr. Collins at the
October (18G7) election ; was boarding
in Phillipsburg, whore I voted with
the other men ; Mr. Lede took me up
to vote and gave me the naturalization
paper, and I put it in ; cannot rend ;
am as ignorant as a baste; I put the
paper in my pocket; cannot tell what
became of it; I was nover naturalized;
never was in a court before this; Ledo
told me to vote; I was working near
Mr. Collins' store; came the day that
O'Meara did to Philipsburg ; 1. voted
Such is the testimony of an honest
Iriehtnan. These words aro the ver
batim report of the testimony given
by Casey under oath before the Inves
tigating Committee of the Senate, and
four days after the examination when
the above was elicited ho was found in
the road near Clearfield, brutally mur
dered; &eaten to death with clubs. Ho
bad undoubtedly boon killed lest ho
should tell more, and to wipe out eve
ry trace of the crime at the polls, on
the night of the murder, two men, on
a forged order, obtained from his land
lady all his papers and destroyed
them. Dead men tell no tales; and
the agents who seduced John Casey
into committing a crime against the
country will probably never be known
in this world.
Leading Democrats,
Gen. Kilpatrick, the impetuous cav
alry leader during the late rebellion,
portrayed the character of some of the
present good otd Democrats, in ono of
his speeches at the Soldiers and Sailors
Convention in Philadelphia last week,
in the following unmistakable language.
He says:
"Who have we to oppose us? The
same mon who opposed us during the
rebellion, both in the South and at the
North. •Who are these men at the
South who have joined hands with the
Northern Democracy ? Why, Robert
Ould, who will be remembered by
many here p'resent who were confined
as prisoners of war in the rebel pens.
He is the man, who, on opening many
of the boxes sent South by your loving
mothers, said he thought the articles
too highly seasoned for Men of seden•
tary habits. Then there is Wade
Hampton, who said to mo that he
would rather his arms should with
er than live with the mudsills of
the North, and that he hoped to live
to apply the torch to every Northern
home. He a front seat in the
New York Convention. Then there's
el-Governor Vance, of North Carolina,
the man trho'addr`ossod his troops with
the'remark that'he wanted thorn to
fill boll so full of Yankees that their
heels would stick out of the third-story
window. Hound Wade Hampton bad
gone into the guerrilla business, but a
ride ofl3o miles on an old mule which
I gave him had the effect of dissolving
that partnership. Then there is For
rest the butcher, who surrounded a
garrison of four hundred men with a
force ten times as strong, and, under
cover of a flag of truce, marched his
force to the rear and murdered nearly
all the garrison. He buried living and
dead in the Banio ditch, and nailed no•
groca to houses and fences, and there
burned them."'
General Dix and Grant.
A private letter from General John
A. Dix, written from Paris nearly a
year since, contains the following par
agraph :
PARIS, January 16, 1868.
"I have thought for a year that
Grant should bo President. The pres
tige of his name will enable him to do
more than any other man to heal tho
national dissensions Which seem to me
at this distance to be as far from a sat
isfactory solution as ever. Then ho is
honest from both instinct and habit,
and he has good sense, perseverance,
and a modest estimate of his own ca
pabilities. I have no doubt he would
call able men to his councils and listen
to their advice, and 1 believe that be
would be a firm conservative and suc
cessful Chief Magistrate."

they demand of Northern men that
they should support their ticket. What

Grant and Seymour Contrasted.
I believe Grant pre-eminently a man
of administration. I believe ho has
not only laid the country under obli
gations to him which we can never re
pay for the services ho rendered dur
ing the war, but I believe ho is destin
ed to lay the country under greater
obligations. Ile will give us an ad
ministration so temperate, so divested
of passion, free from all malign influ
ences, so wise in its selection of men,
so judicious in carrying out measures,
that we will see date from his admin
istration a reeontinuation of the ad•
ministration of Washington liimself—
(cheers and applause)—a man whom
in many important respects ho resem
bles—(applause)—and in no respset
more than Ibis—in his wisdom in tak
ing counsel of wise men and in making
his personal decisions reflect the wis
dom of all the councillors he can gath
er around him. if General Grant sits
at the head of the Gevernment of these
United States, there is not a single
workingman in the nation, not one
poor emigrant, not one dusky creature
that by his pine-knot candle reads Iris
spelling book, that will not feel that
he is safe and seeure after Gen. Grant
is President—will know that the Re
publican party is the party of the com
mon people, and every human being
in the United States will know that
the power of the Government and the
party of enlightened and Christian :
people will bo all in favor of the great

os liberty at all. (Cheers.)
What is his antagonist in private
life ? A gentleman not only most re
spectable, but kind and amiable, of
polished and winning manners against
whose private character no man has
brought a shadow of reproach. But
Seymour is not a man of ideas; ho is
not a man of -victorious will; not a
man who in dark and difficult days
seizes the right path, and then though
all men leaves him follows- it to the
victorious end. Neither soldier nor
general, he is a man that, will be man
aged by those around him; without a
record in the war but a bad record, lie
would hang his burdens on the govern
ment He is not the man that ought
to be'entrusted to shape the policy of

himself to bo the right man to place

More Results of Democratic Teach
From tho Now York Commercial Ads trliser
The official investigation of the Ca
milla (Ga.) massacre has hardly been
completed before we are called upon
to chronicle another bloody butchery
at Opelousas, the capital of St.. Landry
Parish, Louisiana. It was another
deliberate preconcorted movement to
crush Unionism in that region, and
restore rebel supremacy. According
to the New Orleans "Bulletin," a viru
lent Democratic sheet-, ono hundred
Unionists wore hilted and fifty woun
ded, whereas only four Democrats
were wounded, and none killed. The
Crescent, another Democratic sheet, is
confident that Radicalism is done for
in St. Landry Parish, at least for this
Presidential campaign.
Mr. Vidal, member of Congress from
Louisiana, established some time since
at Landry, the Progress, a Republican
paper. It has been edited by Mr.
Bentley, who likewise teaches a school
at that, place. On Monday last a squad
of Rebels set upon Mr. Bentley, in the
presence of his pupils, and proceeded
to Qbastiso him. His friends gathered
to his rescue. Ho, however, urged
them to disperse to their homes, assur
ing them that ho should sue out war
rants for the arrest of the ruffians who
bad set upon him. Meanwhile, the
ox-Confederates began to assemble in
large numbers, with arms, and soon
became an uncontrollable mob, thirst
ing for blood. They proceeded to the
Progress office, threw the typo and
press into the river, and seizing the
French editor, Mr. Durand, took hint
to a neighboring wood, whore ho was
lynched. The foreman of the printing
department was compelled to flee for
safety. Now began a cold-blooded,
heartless butchery. The fiends scat
iertd through the town and neighbor
ing plantations, shootingas they wont,
untie one hundred and fifty . .btaeka fell
victims to their demoniac fdry: The
latter appear to have Made no residt
elle°, as only four of their persecutors
were wounded. 'Such, in' briecare the
details of this horrid affair, the ac
counts of the New Orleans Butictin,
and Republican substantially agreeing.
The fleeing foreman of the printing of
fice has arrived in Now Orleans, and
states that the
-rebels have determined
to kill or drive out all the Unionists,
white or black, from the Opelousas dis
trict. The New Orleans Times (Dem
ocrat), of a late "date, has an account
of an affair at Shreveport, which re
sulted in the death of fifteen Unionists
and three rebels. The other day a par
ty ()farmed mon surrounded the house
of Roderick Hill, a Republican, resid
-1 Mg at Ashpolo, Robeson county, N. C.
and shot to death a young man, a Re
publican, while in the act of being
married to Mr. Hill's daughter. The
bride was likewise seriously injured.
These and other similar outrages
daily occurring throughout the late
Confederacy indicate that the spirit of
rebellion has once more become fairly
rampant. The teachings of the Dem
ocracy of to-day are having their- nat
ural effect. The dire spirit which per
vaded and controlled the Tammany
Convention has permeated the entire
late Confederacy, from North Caroli
na to Arkansas,.and is bringing forth
fruits in abundance. The, late, Con
federates accepted the platform and
temper of that body as an invitation
to be g in the work of anarchy, and
they have not been slow to act upon
it. Tammany warmed into life all
the smouldering elements of the Re
bellion. Fresh from its counsels, Gov,
Hampton, Forrest, et al, pro
ceeded southward to herald the glad
tidings that the Democratic party was
to secure for them 311 the objects for
which they had fought. The people
have believed this. Misled by their
public men, they have believed that
the Democratic party was certain of
success, and would achieve all it pro
mised to do. They have believed that
General Blair's programme would bo
carried out, and so impatient have
they been to carry on the work that
they have not able to wait until the
Democratic party was duly installed
in power.
We have in those Camilla and 0po•
louses butcheries •a foretaste of the
scenes which would transpire through
the late Confederacy were Seymour
and BlGir successful at the polls. Tho
announcement of their election would
be the signal of inaugurating a war
upon the Unionists irrespective of col
or. The Mobile Register, Tuscaloosa
Monitor, Montgomery Mail, Mobile
Telegraph, and
,other exponents of
Southern opinion have already assur
ed us that when that day comes the
"carpet•baggers" will have to travel
forthwith, and the blacks follow after
them unless they mend their ways.—
Said the Richmond Exnmiucr, the oth
er day :—"They (the whit.* will de
monstrate their superiority to the no•
gro race, in a manner that will make
the naked havages of Ethiopia, for cen
turies to come, howl with horror at
the name of a Southern white man."
If now, with an impending election,
and when the World and Richmond
Whig, warned by Vermont and Maine,
aro counselling moderation, these un
repentant rebels indulge in such pas
times, what might wo not expect in
the event of Seymour and Blair's sue
Happily, however, no such calamity
awaits.the country., The election at
General Grant will put an end to all
this Rebel outrage and wrong. Par
doned Confederates who attempted to
overthrow the Government will learn
that those with stood by the Govern•
ment have rights they most and ,Shall
respect. They wi.l be made to learn
that freedom of speech must and Shan
prevail from the Potomac to the Rio
Grande i that we must and shall have
peace in face as well as iu name.
Meanwhile the Washington ,anthor
ides should hasten to aid those of Lou•
isiana in making a thorough examine,
tion into this last butchery, and fixing
the responsibility where it, belongs.
Report of the Committee on the Peace
aml Good Order of the State—Law.
lessness and crime Unparalleled
Oct. D.—The joint
committee of the General Assembly
appointed to investigate the peace and
good order of the State, lion. Hugh J.
Campbell, chairman, report that with
in a short period,2o4 Unionists have
been killed; 51 'were - shot, and 143
otherwise maltreated,-making
.a total
of 398:
The report states that they have
examined personally 1-11 witnesses,
have received 81 letters from various
responsible and reputable citizens, and
have taken 850 copies of affidavits
from the originals iu the possession of
the Senate and douse Committees on
Eke inn and floz.urns. Your committee
aro of the belief that not one tittle of
of the murders and outrages actually
committed daring the time embraced
in our examination appears in the pre
sent report, owing to the shortness of
the time given and other cases above
sot forth. Your committee have rea
son to believe that if adequate time is
given to take even such testimony as
may be offered to them without search
for it from different parts of tho State,
the facts will disclose a state of law
lessness, terrorism, and crime that is
unparalleled in any civilized country,
and disgraceful to the age in which we
live and the Christian character which
we profess.
Humanity sickens at the contempla
tion of a bigotry so ferocious and a
hate so remorseless, founded solely on
political differences, and having for its
impelling motive not resistance to op
pression, but an unruly desire to coerce
the sentiments and actions of others,
and a blind feeling of rage and venge
ance toward those whom they cannot
cow nor silenco.
IL is the mature conclusion of your
committee, founded on the testimony
before them, that the State of lawless
tress and unpunished crime prevalent
in this State is chargeable not alone to
the desperate and infamous characters
wiware the immediateagents,but to the
apathy and silent connivance of that
large•and respectable class of the peo
ple-of the ,Stato, who, while they would
acorn py'rsonally to commit, any of
these violent acts, if they do not actu
ally sympathize with their perpetra
tors at least refrain studiously from
any efforts to restrain or bring them
tojustico, and aro therefore justly lia
ble to the indictment of the peace-lov
ing portion of the coma - lenity for the
ofi.ence of permitting such misci•ecnts
to roam •at large unpunished'. •
