The ''Globe" has the largest numbed; of
readers any other paper published in the
eounty. Advertisers should remember this.
A Maine newspaper writer asserts
that the citizens of that State have
lost at least $1,000,000 by petroleum
speculations in Canada and-Pennsyl
vania. We know some people who
don't lice in Maine, who have loft some

SECRETARY BOUTWELL last week re
fused to sell gold for less than $1 22.
The reason assigned is, that the gold
gamblers put the precious metal down
purposely until Boutwell had sold his
weekly installment, then they would
have "rushed" it up again; but the
Secretary was too sharp for them.
THE Government works, at Harper's
Ferry, Va., wore sold at auction on
the 30th of November. For the mus•
ket factory $176,000 was received, and
for the rifle factory $30,000. The sale
includes the buildings, grounds, and
the magnificent water power attached
to them. The purchasers will use the
buildings for manufactories.
,NEARLY five years have elapsed
since the last rebel grounded his arms,
and yet there are to-day lying around
loose in the various departments at
Washington'and elsewhere upward of
one hundred thousand applications for
peiisions, the most,of which were filed
either ditring or immediately after the
close of the war. What is the cause

the People's League, has already given over
this Legislative district to the Democrats for

That's an honest admission, Mr. Cro
mer—if you keep on improving in tho
ways of truth, you will soon be able
to publish the whole truth,—that Or
lady is Chief of the League and that
your paper is its organ. The medi
cine "Robert the Scribe" is giving you
in small doses is having some effect.

:And because you could not get one
of the best offices in the county for
being only a voter you would try to de
stroy your party ? And to day, while
you are individually enjoying the pro
fits of a fat party office which should
only have been given to a true party
man, you are continuing your guerril
la efforts to injure the political influ
ence of men who have always labored
more earnestly at a greater expense
than any of your guerrilla elan for the
success of the party. "Only a voter for
a series of years last past,"--and yet
you want to dictate to the bard work•
era in the party how they shall work
to give you and your kind, and the
Democrats, all the offices. Every

publicans in the country, and who,
some years ago declared that "hell

Democratic party," has given the lie
'to all his past life, and committed po
litical suicide, by striking hands' with
tile Democratic party:' 'at least

-.We 'can hardly believe, however,
that an old man,' tottering on the
verge of the grave, would so stultify
himself in almost his last hours, as to
commit an act that would forever hand
his name down in history, as an in
grate and an apostate to his party and
his country in the very last moments
of his life, after that party had given
him.all that be has and made him all
that he is. - -Go in peace, and may the

Nine months ago the . Democratic
journals were jubilant with prophe
sies of the coming bankruptcy of the
nation. Ruin of the credit they
thought would be equivalent to Demo
cratic success; and they wore glad,
and made merry in their hearts. But
the stubborn President insisted on re
trenchment and economy, cut off need
less expenses, and actually began to
pay off the debt—slowly, to be sure,
but in appreciable quantity. The De
mocracy were disgusted ; their thun
der was taken away; they tried one
misrepresentation after another, abotft
railroad bonds, about money in the
Treasury, about canceled bonds and
currency. Still the reduction of the
debt went on. Gold went down, and
credit went up. The elections came—
they did not carry Ohio, did not curry
Minnesota, and did not honestly car•
As the Opposition is profound on
figures, we offer a few specimens for
their' consideration. The actual re
duction of the public debt since den.
Grant was placed at the helm, is $71,-
903,525 00. • The length of his Ad.
ministration is nine months; the re
duction per month is $7,989,261 00 ;
and for each week, $1,843,680 00; and
for each day, $262,421 63 ; and for each
hour, $10,934 23; and for each second
over $3 04. That is just the rate at
which the Republican Administration
is sending the nation to ruin. Within
each interval of the issues of the sore
headed Democratic dailies, with their
chronic growl about Radical waste,
the Treasury pays off $262,421 63 of
our debt, and in that proportion re
duces the interest thereon. While an
atrabilious editor is dining at.the Man.
batten Club, four or five thousand dol
lars of the public debt are canceled ;
and while he is concocting a leader,
showing the hopeless failure of Grant,
an equal emu is redeemed.
The debt, less the amount of money
in the Treasury, is in round numbers
$2,453,660,000. At the rate of reduc
tion since Grant's inauguration, inclu
ding the abatement of interest, it
would be fully paid in less than thirty
years. We have, since Grunt came in,
paid nearly $8,000,000 per month;
and there is every prospect that the
good work will go on.
gm,.The talk between McDivitt of
the Journal and Cremer of the guerril•
la organ, the Republican, is getting to
be very interesting to outsiders, Re
publicans outside of the guerrilla Cir
cle. Their exposures are throwing
open to broad day-light what we have
always strongly suspected,—the exis
tence of a secret political organization
with Orlady at its head. Many of uur
good friends, and respectable party
men, were deceived into the support
of the interest of this guerrilla band
during the lute campaign. They were
made to believe that the fight against a
portion of the ticket was because that
portion of the ticket belonged to a se
cret political organization, when in
truth the fight against them was made
by Orlady & Co. because they did not
belong to mid would not liave any
political association with the guerrilla'
faction. Scott was captured and used
by the secret, political organization
because he did not love certain mon
who could not be influenced by Orla
dy, Wharton & Co., and his influence
and power had the effect of making
tools and fools of a good many men
who had never until the late campaign
been guilty of betraying their party's
interests. Cromer is playing the part
of Orlady's dog—barking whenever
commanded to do sp. His guerrilla
sheet was established to work in the
interests of guerrillas, and, in opposi
tion to all who should refuse to be in
fluenced and controlled by the control
ling power of the guerrilla band. Cro
mer holds a very honorable position,—
editor of a guerrilla organ ! No won
der his wig is beginning to turn gray.
President Grant hopes to have the
Darien ship canal well under way be
fore the close of! his administration,
and to further this work he has order
ed the Secretary of the Navy to de
tail a sufficient force to make the ne
cessary surveys of the isthmus. No
doubt is entertained that the treaty
already negotiated will be ratified by
the Colombian government, and in
view of this fact that government has
accorded permission to the United
States to cause the requisite surveys
to be made.
A number of ,whiskey dealers in
Rondout and Kingston were arrested
by Marshal Harlow a few days ago
and their stock seized and places of
business closed, on charges of defraud

stamps whatever have been used on
their packages, and the revenue offi
cer in oharge'of the district, it is said,
has not reported a stamp sold for two
years. The frauds are said to amount

McDivitt of the Journal d: American ,
is after Cromer of the Guerrilla Organ
with hot shot. It appears from the
evidence offered by McDivitt and Cre
mer that both met other Republicans
in secret caucus at C'remer's residence
after the August nominating Convon
Lion, for the purpose of making ar
rangements to defeat a portion of the
ticket nominated. But McDivitt
couldn't swallow the "programme" and
withdrew from any further association
with the guerrilla band. Cremer, de
feated by the Convention, was ready
for any position and any kind of work
to defeat the ticket, be was therefore
selected to take a position as editor,
and money was immediately subscribed
to furnish him with a press—the press
was bought and Mr. Cremer is run
ning it. We give below some of Mc-
Divitt's talk from the last Journal &
"We are certainly becoming very trouble
some to the Guerrilla League, either from
the fact that our expose of their secret work
ings is very unpalatable, or that the conspir
acy formed by them to 'extinguish' the
Journal & American is not proving a success.
The 'organ' of this Association pays its re
spects to us last week in one or two short arti
cles,only occupying fourcobtnans,in which the
humble name of our Junior editor occurs—
if we counted correctly—only about fifteen
times. The greater part of it is devoted by
the editor to an attempt, by an ingeniouslis
sue of sophistry and misrepresentation, to
cover up the proceedings of that secret con
clave which assembled at his residence short
ly after the August Convention.
"Mr. Cremer is an- astute lawyer, and
knows just when and how to lie to advantage,
but his attempted denial of what happened
at this so-called 'social gathering' is a piece
of unblushing effrontery which we were not
prepared for. We will not, however, permit
him to lie himself out of the difficulty, mis
represent us, or pull the wool over the eyes
of the people in any such way.

there often em.ugh to know that all this, and
much more, did take place there. We also
know that a secret political organization was
represented in that conclave, and we dare
any ono to deny it. We should not have
been at liberty to reveal what transpired
there, had not our reputation been assailed,
but as it has now become a question of vera

ourselves, and if in so doing we provide 'an

longing to the so-called 'People's League,'
while in the next issue it is admitted that we
do not belong, but deny its existence 'through

again, that we know nothing of the organi•

on evidence very doubtful and contradictory.
We do know something about an organization
into the hidden mysteries of which a certain
Henry R. Shearer was sought to be initiated,
on a certain occasion, and as you are now the

existence of such an organization, for the
very good reason that we know nothing about
it, and having nothing to do with the denial
of either Mr. Woods or Dr. Shade. We can
not say this mush in regard to every secret

either positively or negatively, ever deny the
existence of the organization and constitution
