To the Republicans of Hunt
The approaching election is one of very
great importance, and its results will have
a telling effect upon the still more vital
contest of next year.
The tide is in our favor, The people of
CALIFORNIA and MAINE have greet
ed each other across this mighty continent,
and the Great Party which saved the Na
tion from the hordes of treason has been
again vindicated at the ballot box. In
view of these things, I appeal to the earn
est Republicans, and especially to the
members of the County Committee, in
every township and borough throughout
the County, to SEE TO IT AT ONCE
that arrangements are made to have every
Republican voter out on the dty of the
election. If necessary, have conveyances
Bent, early in the day, for those who are
unable to walk to the polls.
NO BUSINESS, HOWEVER IM—
PORTANT, SHOULD BE ALLOWED
TO KEEP A REPUBLICAN at HOME
on the day of the ELECTION.
A man who voluntarily stays at home
on that day, and loses his vote, is not fit to
enjoy the right of suffrage.
Let voters remember that THEY control
the Government of this country; and if
bad men get into office, it is their fault.
Last year a Democratic member of Con
gress was elected from this District because
a large number of Republicans did not go
to the election and vote. TWELVE RE—
PUBLICAN VOTES WOULD HAVE
CHANGED THE RESULT.
A Democratic State Senator was elected
from this District, and the Senate of Penn
sylvania was thereby made Democratic,'
because the Republicans of Huntingdon
County did not go to the Election.
See to it then, that no township or bor
ough suffers a single voter to remain away
from the polls, and lose his vote, on the
10th day of October neat.
Have men appointed to stand at the
polls all day and see that no illegal voting
is done—CHALLENGE FREELY, if
necessary ; timidity at the polls may lose

„Huntingdon, Pa., Sep. 30th.
no Slamion of MD EMU.
It Admits that Gen. Lane does not
Owe the County, the State nor
his Bail a Single Dollar.
A HARMLESS SCARE-CROW !
As an evidence of the desperate straits
to which the rebel-loving Democracy of
this county are driven, and the unscrupu
lous means to which they are willing to
resort, in order to save a sinking cause, we
have only to refer our readers to the last
two issues of the Monitor. We showed
most conclusively, in our last issue, that
the attack made upon Gen. Lane was a
malicious falsehood, manufactured for the
occasion, by publishing a plain, unvarnish
ed and truthful statement of the whole
affair, which that paper has not dared to
answer or deny, but simply contents itself
by reiterating the stale falsehood.
We simply ask our readers, all who
think worth while to go to that trouble, to
take the statement of the Monitor itself,
and see if it does not furnish one of the
best evidences that Gen. Lane, in the case
referred to, acted the part of an honest,
upright and conscientious man. That a
balance was found against him, in favor of
the State, at the close of his term as Treas
urer of the county, no one denies, and we
have already shown how it came to be
there, as well as the necessary legal steps
taken by Mr. Lane to defend himself
against a claim which was manifestly un
just. Instead of remaining at home to test
its validity, however, he entered the Union
army with thousands of his brave-hearted
countrymen, and marched, at the roll-c9l
of Freedom, to the rescue of an imperilled
Government, there to seal his devotion to
the glorious standard of pgr common coun
try on many a hard-fought battle-field,
while Mr. Africa, his opponent, was at
home doing service for his rebel friends, on
this side of the line, by denouncing the
war as an "ABOLITION RAID," our
gallant soldiers as "LINCOLN'S HIRE
LINGS," and the battle-fields of Freedom
as "LINCOLN'S SLAUGHTER PENS."
That judgment was obtained against
him, under the circumstances, and the
amount paid by Gen. Wilson, one of his
sureties, is not denied, but that Mr. Lane
was a defaulter, or an embezzler, of public
money, or that he allowed his bail to suffer,
we think is manifestly susceptible of con
tradiction, even by the Monitor's own
statement, and the author of that article is
evidently very much at fault in citing a
section of the penal code which was not in
existence at the time. Gen. Lane was clear
ly in no danger of a criminal prosecution,
and never has been since, and if any such
threats were made by General Wilson, as
the Monitor alleges, they proceeded from
But we would only say, in conclusion,
to the legal and honorable gentlemen who
do the dirty work, why is it that the money
was paid? Gen. Lane, you say, was '•ut
terly insolvent," and of course was not
obliged to pay, and no lawyer will pretend
to say that he was in any danger of a crim
inal prosecution. Can there then, be any
other motive assigned for the refunding of
that money to Gen. Wilson, inside of live
days from the time it was paid, other than
that which would actuate any high mind
ed and honorable man in paying voluntar
ily an unjust debt rather than see his bail
suffer! Until these questions are answer
ed we will ask our readers to aecept the
statement made by the Monitor as satisfac
tory evidence of Mr. Lane's honesty, and
It requires an ingenious falsifier to al
ways make both ends of a story correspond,
and like the man who ran the deer • into
the snow bank and caught it, in harvest,
we fear that the Monitor scribblers have
got their story mixed up so badly as to be
able to explain it on no other hypothesis
when subjected to the crucible of reason
and common sense.
The entire amount, including interest
and costs, was refunded to his bail inside of
five days from the payment thereof, and
his receipt taken for the same, and this
too by a man who the Monitor declares was
"utterly insolvent" and without any real
estate, and who was in no danger of any
The amount of legal ability displayed by
the author of that statement, strikes us as
not being very creditable. Had he, good,
honest soul that he is, examined the record
at Harrisburg, a few pages from the state
ment he garbled to suit his own purpose,
he might have found evidence of other de
faulting public officers, with the claim still
John Mierley, Esq.
We notice an article under this head, in
the last issue of the Nonztor,which states that
Mr.Mierley is not an office seeker in any sense
of the term, and that "he scoihs the politi
cal trickster and would not wallow in the
mire in which his competitor lives and
grows fat." Now this seems strange, in
deed, when we take into consideration that
scarcely a Republican can be found that he
has not solicited to vote for him with all the
imploring sympathy of a h3und pup with
his foot in a steel trap. It is truly a won
der that so pure a man would allow one of
"Lincoln's hirelings" to vote for him! And
as for him being "no mere reflector," we
differ in that, for never was Jeff. Davis'
character more truthfully reflected during
the war, than through John Mierley !
Think of his war record, Republicans, and
take as an indignity all of his palavering
and begging of your votes. Go to the
polls and vote for Judge Clarkson, who is
his equal in every respect, and a sound
Republican, and instead of his holding
office so long being an objection, he needs
no better recommendation. And, further
remember, not a Republican in the county

Gen. Lane, the Monitor admits, PAID
EVERY DOLLAR, and MORE THAN
HE OUGHT TO HAVE PAID. Why,
then, this hellahaloo ? Oh, but he didn't
pay over immediately upon his retirement
from office, and consequently, he is an
EMBEZZLER and DEFAULTER ! In
deed ! Gen. Lane was charged with the
percentage on a valuation of $BOO,OOO more
than was collected in the county, and if
he paid, he would have been obliged to
PAY OUW OF HIS OWN POCKET.
He refused to settle until the State cor
rected her account. Was not this right'!
The PEOPLE EXPECTED HIM TO
STAND BETWEEN THEM AND THE
EXTRAORDINARY DEMANDS OF
THE STATE, and by so doing he saved
the county $6,400 ! Because if Gen,'
Lane had not resisted the unreasonable
demands of the State, but quietly acqui-1
esced, paid over the money and said noth
about it, the mistake would never have
been discovered, and the tax payers of
Huntingdon count✓ would have been

The President Judgeship.
A word to those of our Republican
friends who are weighing the question of
voting for Judge Taylor instead of Mr.
Dean. We have not concealed the fact of
our personal regard for Judge Taylor, and
we therefore think it ohr duty to offer a
word of advice to those who entertain the
same feelings. From all we can learn, from
our exchanges, and from well informed
persons, of both parties, ail over the dis
trict, we are convinced the regular nomi,
nees, Mr. Dean and Mr. Banks, will re
ceive the support of the great mass of
their respective parties, leaving Judge
Taylor, the independent candidate, with
out any reasonable prospect of even coming
near an election. This being the case why
should Huntingdon county Republicans
throw away their votes, and aid in electing
Admitting that Mr. Dean and Mr,
Banks are both respectable lawyers of Blair
county, why should any Republican, of this
county, adopt a course which is calculated
to elect a Demo'rat to office, while it does
the man they wish to serve no earthly
good r We trust our Republican friends
will take a calm and dispassionate view of
this matter, and find it a pleasure, as well
as a duty, to cast a solid, undivided vote
for the regular ticket.
le— Get out every vote !
Gen. Lane the Tax-payers'
Gen. Lane saved the tax-payers, by his
efforts to have the State correct her ac
count, SIX THOUSAND FOUR I.:UN
DRED DOLLARS ! This is no small
item, To do this he was obliged to stand
the State a suit, and when his bail was
pushed he paid every dollar ! Wasn't this
manly ? Did any person lose anything
But it is not alleged that any one did. Oh,
no ! But he used the State's money for
several years! ! Suppose he did, he be
lieved that he did not owe the State any
thing, and until the State showed that he
did he had a perfect right to use the mon
ey; any respectable lawyer knows this to
be the case. It was not until after he re
tired from office that a prosecution and a
penalty was enacted for withholding funds
of this kind. This being the case no hon
est lawyer will say that he violated any
statute. And yet the Monitor has charged
this man with Embezzlement and Perjury.
Stich conduct is infamous !
Enthusiastic meetings have been held at
Shade Gap, Orbisonia, Scottsville, Cass
ville, Green's School House, Broad Top
City, Marklesburg, Alexandria, Birming

gentlemeri hare done most excellent ser
vice and the party should remember them
for it. We are in favor of rewarding those
who labor. Our space is so limitel that
we cannot individualize the meetings.
HOW NOT TO DO IT !
Before the Democratic Convention some
friend of Mr. Dewees, who is one of the
best men in the State, and true to the in
terests of Huntingdon county, wrote a
communication to the Monitor recommend
ing that gentleman for Assembly, but, no,
Mr. Dewees, in the estimation of Mr. Af
rica and the Monitor clique, was not the
man for the place—nobody was fit for it
but the latter gentleman, and the Monitor
refused to publish the communication.—
Now Mr. Dewees is asked to support Mr.
Africa! Cool, ain't it ?
THE GEN. LANE SLANDERS !
The effort of the Monitor clique to in
jure Gen. Lane, by the publication of the
most unblushing falsehoods, are likely to
be productive of much good. There were
unfortunately heee then Republicans who
felt like complimenting Mr. Africa, but
the infamous assault upon our candidate
has stopped that little diversion quite
short, and Mr, Africa can put all the votes
of that kind in his ey 0. ,:iplucb fur slan
Ky. Don't cut the ticket—don't trash
votes. Be fish, flesh, or red herring, Go
the whole pig, or nothing.
STAR BY THE TICKET !
ELECT JOHN DEAN !
THE " GLOBE'S VIEW OF IT !
The last Globe contains an article, under
the head of "President Judge," which we
fully endorse. We reproduce a portion of
Previous to the meeting of our County
Convention it was generally understood in
the Republican ranks throughout the
county that both wings of the party would
forget the past in the present campaign
and vote the ticket, no matter who should
be placed in no_nination by the delegates
in the Convention. The ticket is before
the Rapublican party and there can be no
striking down this year without endanger
ing the success of party nominees in the
future. It will not do for party men to
say that a Judge should not be elected by
a party. Both parties have made State
and District nominations heretofore, and
will again, and it is as much the duty of
party men to stick to their nominations for
Judge as for any other office. If Repub
licans, by cutting Dean, could elect any
other Republican and better man, there
might be some excuse for their treachery,
but when it must be clear to every voter
that a Republican vote given to Taylor
would be only helping to elect the Demo
cratic candidate, common sense will tell
them that by voting for Taylor they would
be voting to destroy their party organiza
tion and party power in the county. John
Dean is the Republican nominee, and as
such he has a claim upon every Republi
can voter in the county and district, and
every vote cast for any other man for Pre
sident Judge will be a vote against the
party that placed Mr. Dean in nomination."
A GREAT IMPOSITION!
DEMOCRATIC LEGISLATION !
Last Winter a Bill was pushed through
the Legislature authorizing the construc
tion of a road from a point in Shirley town
ship across Shade Mountain into Tell town
ship, for the accommodation of a few De
mocrats in the latter township. To make
this road, which is of no earthly use to
Shirley, a tax of nine mills has to be laid.
This is the way Democrats do things.—
Vote fur Lane !

The ticket will be voted in three separ
ate slips—one headed "STATE," with
the names of Auditor General, Surveyor
General and Constitutional Amendment,
the aecond headed "JUDICIARY," with
the names of the candidates for presideqt

"COUNTY," which will contain the names
of the candidates for Assembly, High Sher

Republicans, if there is a man in your
town or vicinity who has been, or wants to
be, prominent in our party, and who is
lukewarm or doubtful in his support of the
ticket this fall; who says to one pr,s,m,
"stick to the ticket," and to another whis

him in the future! Very likely he has go

Catholics Asked to Vote for
a Know Nothing!
Mr. Africa was initiated into the Know
Nothings on the 25th of July, 1854, and
he previously edited the Standing-Stone
Banner, in which violent assaults were
made upon Catholics and Foreigners, which
facts demonstrate his settled convictions,
and now, Catholics and Foreigners, you
are asked to vote for him. Will you do
it? Vote for Lane!
THE JIG'S up!
The Democracy concede the election of
our whole ticket, but in order to make the
victory complete it is important that we
poll a full vote, and it is the DUTY of ev

polls on Tuesday next. Devote the entire
day in securibg the complete discomfiture
of this corrupt and rascally organization.

Is called "General" because while the fight
ing was going on in the Wilderness, and
almost in the light of burning Chambers
burg, he wrote to the Secretary of War, de
claring that no man could honorably scree
in the Union army, and declining t..) be a
General in it. Therefore, soldiers, vote
for General Bill 2.l'Candless !
After this effort of self-sacrificing devo
tion to rebellion, General M'Candless ruch
ed bravely into the whiikey business in
Philadelphia. His legitimate profits were
not sufficient for his wants, and his distil
lery was accordingly seized by the Govern
ment for illicit distillation. It was here
that he acquired that knowledge of Gov
ernment accounts which peculiarly quali
fies him to be Auditor General of Penn
sylvania, in the judgment of the temper
ance party. Therefore, temperance men,
vote for Spangler, and elect that staunch,
temperance man, William I%l'Candless.
A bill was introduced in the Legisla
ture during the term of Wm M'Candless
as Senator, which provided for the estab
lishment of a cattle yard at Philadelphia,
in the absolute possession of a close cor
poration ofa half dozen individuals, thro• gh
which every pound of beef consumed in
Philadelphia should pass and.. be inspected.
Its effect was to pass an enormous tax upon
drovers, and to raise the price of beef rp
on consumers. It is known as the "Infa
mous" Cattle Bill. In the Senate its
champion orator was William M'Candless.
Whereupon all drovers and all consumers
should vote for Cattle Bill M'Candless,
When the Free Railroad bill was making
its last struggle in the Pennsylvania Leg
islature, General M'Candless was in the
Senate and voted constantly and consis
tently with its opponents. 'Whenever an
issue was raised between the public and
their creature corporations, his voice and
vote were for the corporations. Where
fore the western advocates of a Free Rail
road law are expected to vote for Railroad
When the Connellaville railroad was be
ing strangled by its great competitor, Gen.
M'Candless was in the Senate, and was
eager and active in his endeavors for its
destruction. None so willing as he to
drive the very last nail into its coffin.
Therefore, the merchants - or Pittsbnigh
and the people of the west are expected to
vote solidly and enthusiastically for Con_
nellsville Bill M'Candless.
GENERAL Bill M'Candless. •
DEFAULTER Bill M'Candless.
CATTLE BILL M'Candless.
RAILROAD BILL M'Candless.
CONNELLSVILLE BILL M'Candless.
Or, if you can't do this, for God's sake
give a vote to Spangler. Then the Sol
diers, and the Temperance men, and the

Not many years ago J udge Taylor se
verely reprimanded a gentleman of Tyrone,
then a resident of Huntingdon, for pro
posing to vote for a Democratic candidate.
Said the Judge ;
"Mr. —, you never should split
" your ticket, especially on important offices.
" No party is safe unless it can depend up
"on its •rnenibers. You slaughter your reg
" ular nominees, and I wouldn't give a pie
" wine for a party. No sir, STICK Tq,'
" YOUR TICK ET ALWAYS. Therein
"lies the safety of the Republican party."
Should we attempt it, we should fail in
giving Republicans better advice than that
given by Judge Tayl.z. "Therein lies the
safety of the Republican party." As true
as the needle to the pole. "No party is
safe," etc. Every honest party man feels
that to be true. "Stick to your ticket?'
Yes, STICK ! Remember the Judge's
charge, delivered when he was personally
disinterested, and teach political malcon
tents, vipers, guerrillas, bolters, ga - mblers
and barnacles that with you Republican
ism means the TICKET.—Tyrone herald.

'Nothing but a Miracle can Save Him !"
On last Tuesday afternoon a report was
rapidly spread amongst the people of the
town, that the leading Democratic politi
cians of this Judicial District were to as
semble at the Exchange Hotel, in this
place, that evening, for the purpose of„ in
ducing Mr. Banks to withdraw. Consid
erable interest was felt in regard to the
matter in Republican circles, however
nothing definite was ascertained until Wed
nesday morning, when our reporter, who
had hung upon the skirts of the affair, in
formed us that after a muddled exchange
of opinions, in which one of the party said
that "nothing but a miracle could save
him" (Banks) and our "oily gammon"
Congressman, in the blandest manner, as
sured the assembly that "the Democratic
party coulu not be controlled in his favor
here," it was no go. Banks had determin
ed to "stick." After this the whole party,
with a few exceptions, imbibed freely, and
the drunker they got the better Banks men
they became. What a confession of weak

themselves as heartily in favor of Mr.
Dean, and the whole regular Republican
ticket. Particularly is this the case in
Huntingdon county. Our friends there
now claim that Mr. Deau will carry that
county by a majority of not less than from
six to eight hundred. The feeling has not
been so good in that county for the past
three years—all differences are healed—

every day—the Taylor men are growing
fewer and fewer—until we can confidently
predict he will not get two hundred votes
in the county, of all parties; and very ma
