THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEES,
The severe pressure upon our columns
'last week, so abridged our space that we
were unable to say more than a mere wore
upon the result of the State Convention.
We propose now to give our readers a brief
account of the men who have been chosen
as the standard bearers of the Republican
party in the approaching canvass. We
are indebted to the Harrisburg Telegraph
for the facts here submitted :
DR. DAVID STANTON,
nominated for Auditor General, is at pros_
ent a resident of New Brighton, Beaver
county, and is a son of the late Dr. Benja
min Stanton, of Ohio. He was born in
1859, and when twenty-one years of age
removed to his present place of residence
and commenced the practice of medicine,
a profession he is still actieely and profita
bly engaged in, his evidence of merit and
qualifications being apparent in diplomas]
from the Cleveland Medical College and
the University of Pennsylvania. In An-
gust 1861, he entered the service of his
country as surgeon of the First Pennsyl
vania. Cavalry; and was connected with the
Army of the Potomac until promoted to
the post of surgeon U. S. V., in November
1862, from which date until he resigned,
in December, 1865, he acted as Superin
tendent of Hospitals, and as assistant and
acting Medical director of the Northern
Department, on the staffs of Generals
Heintzelman and Hooker. In 1864 he
was breveted_ lieutenant colonel, and' in
1865 was wade brevet colonel. The Doc
tor is of Quaker descent, was an old-time
Abolitionist, and is a near relative of the
lamented Secretary of War Stanton, to
whom he has a strong personal resemblance.
Mr. S. is peculiarly fitted for the im
portant position to which the Republicans
of this State have assigned him as their
COL. ROBERT B. BEATH,
who was nominated as the Republican
candidate for Surveyor General, was born
in the city of Philadelphia, January 26,
1839, of Scotch parentage. He served an
apprenticeship with Merrick &, Sons, at
their Southwark foundry. At the outset
of the war he enlisted from there as a pri
vate, April 20, 1861, serving during the
three months' service in company G,
Twenty-third Pennsylvania, and was mus
tered out as sergeant. On September 5,
1861, he was mustered in as sergeant of
Company D, Eighty-eighth regiment Penn
sylvania volunteers, serving as such until
promoted to second lieutenant, dating De
cember 18, 1862. Hewas wounded in the
foot at the second Bull Run battle, in which
he participated. In August, 1863, he was
promoted to be captain of Company A,
Sixth regiment United States colored
troops, serving with this company and reg
meat in all its marches and engagements
in front of Petersburg and on the James
In tha charge on the rebel works at New
Market (better known as Chapin's farm),
September 29, 1864, he was again wound
ed in the foot, resulting in the amputation
of the right leg below tJle knee, When
able to leave the hospital he was assigned
to duty at Camp William Penn,near Phil
adelphia, returning to his regiment in Au
gust, 1865. He was then placed in charge
of the &unties of Brunswich and Hano
ver, Freedman's Bureau, forming the sub
district of Wilmington, and remained in
this position until mustered out with the
regiMent, September 20, 1865, when he
received a commission as lieutenant col°.
Mr. Beath is at present engaged as book

PRIVATE RESIDENCE FOR SALE.
Having gone into business at this place I

Pennsylvania, at private sale.
It is unnecessary for me to give a description of
it to those who are acquainted with it, and to those
who have not seen it, and who desire to purchase
a neat and complete residence I would say go and
examine it. The house was entirely overhauled
and renovated but a year or two ago, It is located
upon a full lot of ground, GO feet by 240, on East
Pitt street, and thecorner of an alley loading to
the Steam Mill, which makes it one of the most
public places in the town in a business point of
view. The lot is under drained by numerous
