James A. (iai field, of Ohio, bad ten

Good Authority. A few thin skin
cd peojilo claim that Gcnorul Hancock
is not lawyer enough to bo mnUe Pros
idont. On this point wa rctor the
reader to the opinion of one of tho
ablest Senators, who is personally ac
quainted with both nominocs. We
allude to Senator Katon, of Connecti
cut, who said at a Democratic meeting
tho other evening: "Gen. Hancock
was nominated because bo is like Jef
ferson and Madison and Jackson, a
Democrat from Ibo crndlo. I tell you
here tonight with a good deal of
knowlcdgo of the man of a pcrsonol
acquaintance with the man that be
ia a better constitutional lawyer than
tbe nominee of tho Republican party."
Thoso, thereforo, who nro looking
around for a lawyer for President,
should givo this subject some thought.
Wo know Garfield it a high-priced law
yer, having charged Do Golycr (5,000
for an opinion, but in a common sonso
light ho is tho cheapest lawyer over
nominated for President, whilo bo is
tho proprietor of one nf tho dirtiest
record n over offered to the American
We Cannot Comply. Thoro seems
to bo a universal run for "Hancock at
Gettysburg," tho title of an article wo
published on tho 17th ot March last.
Ono writer says: "George, send mo
ten copies of tbe Reitulican duled
March 17th." Another, "Send mo fivo
copios," and it third, "thrco copies."
Wo cannot comply with cither request,
our edition being entirely exhausted
except our own file. From the in
quiry raised about this document we
will agreo to re publish it within the
next two weeks, so that all may have
an opportunity to read il from a stand
point after tbe nomination of the Pa
triot, Hero and Statesman to whom it
refers. Wo do not think that wo can
givo our readers any better matorial
to peruse on this occasion than to re
peat "Hancock ut Gettysburg."
Aliunde Joe. Tbo New York Sun

A Radical exchango says: "Mr. C.

OK THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE.
Mrs. Huucock, tbo wilo of tbo Gen
eral, is a lew years his junior in ago,
and aa a woman, is as Imposing in ap
pearance as ho is a man. 'fall and
well proportioned, with tbo most win
some smile, a niuiiiiui' I hut puts you at
your ease at once, and a pair ol eyes
that animate every line of a handsome
face, alio is still a beauty, although her
hair, is becoming slrcakcd.wilh gray.
Nho was married when tho General
waa but a young lieutenant doing duty
in tbo fur West It wus entirely a
lovo match, and neithor of tbcm have
since regrutod It In fact, their home
is one of the happiest imaginable. Mrs,
Hancock has always beon opposed to
her husband becoming a candidate for
tho Presidency, and f he now is oven
above tho weakness of wishing lo bo
tlio mistress of the White Honso. She
dreads Iho worry of tho canvass, and
if her husband is elected sho thinks
Ibo honor which the position brings
will bo deurly purchased by the rontin
cialion of all domestic lifo for four
yeara lo como and of bis position as
senior Major General and his chances
of soon becoming chief ot the army.
While sho prefers her homo exlstonce,
however, thoro is no ono better quali
fied to play tho hostess on a grand
settle than alio. A society belle, oven
after her marriugo, sho bas all tho .elf
confidence and resources noeded to en
tertain tho most varied company
Thoro is nothing in Iho range of con.
versution about which sh does not
know something. Her greatest charm,
howovor, is and it is tho General's
also the art of making every individ
ual atom feel as if ho were tho sole ob
ject of her attentions. H. Y. Graphic.
Queeu. Gen. Hunoock is in favor
of tariff for revenue Gon. Garfield is
a momber of tho Eree Trade Leagno.
Vet, his party organ the Jotiri,i last
woek had tho audacity lo assail our
nominee on tbo tariff question after
tbia manner: "Hancock is running for
President as a Pennsylvania man and
in hope of carrying Pennsylvania on a
platform of a tariff tor rovenue only.'
If be can carry it on that platform,
then good bye to protection for ever.
Even Dallas, in 1st f, could not carry
Pennsylvania excopt by professing
(falsely as it turned out) to bo in favor
ot tho tariff ot '42." Well, sinco you
have sounded tho alarm bell on "pro
tection," what would become of our
poor Commonwealth if Garfield oould
be elected 7 Would not tbo "good bye"
be Blill longer. More : Six your, ago

Hkkdio to THE SURFACE. Wo no
tice by tho Williamsport Sun that Pe
ter Herdic has invented a now style
passongcr coach, capablo of seating
eight persons and to bo drawn with
ono horse. Tho principal points about
this coach, giving it siiperionty over
any other, is in the fact of its having
very largo wheels, thus passing more
easily over tbo rouirh pavements and
allowing ono horse lo draw about aa
much as two with smaller whoels.
The axles are in a single piece of cast
ing, with a drop nf eighteen inches
from tbo spindles, allowing tbe coach
to sot nour tho ground. There aro
olher points of exoollenco which com
mend Ihemsolves at onco. Mr. Hordic
has organized a company, with a capi
tal of $1,000,000 at Philadelphia, where
they intend lo nianufacluro theso
coachos on a large scalo and expect to
supply ovcry city in the United Slates.
A Good Tiiinii Puck's campaign
pictures aro good. Last week Gonoral
Hancock is represented as standing
erect and laiiltlcss, while a scoro or so
of Republican editors are hunting
through his pockets, trunks, dusks,
and drawers, searching for something
derogatory lo him. Ono fellow went
so fur as to poko his noso into a spit
loon, while another one nearly broko
his nock peeping up tbo chim
ney. Rut it was no go; llioir efforts
wero fruitions, and despair Is pictur
ed on their faces, while their hair
stood eroct liko porcupine quills,
Our nominee never engaged in grabs,
stocks, big fees, and other disreputable
jobs. His life has boon exactly tbe
rovcrsoof that of his rival, Garfield,
who, it seems, if tho Congressional Rec
ord is truo, engaged in every disreputa
ble job that came along.
Off mi Track. Leonard W. Jo
romo, a prominent and wealthy Re
publican of Now York city, has come
out for Hancock. Mr. Joromo usually
contributes 125,000 to a Presidential
campaign. This takes an influential
man and a nice sum of money away
Hon. Job Stovonaon, for many years
a Radical Congressman from Cincin
nati, aays: "In jnatico to the party, it
should be slated that if Iho candidacy
of Garfiold bad boon proclaimed for a
woek only a week before Ibe Con?
vontlon met, he never would liavo bson
nominated." And he throws ont a
very broad hint that ho will not go
Garfield in Novembor, because of the
notorious shortcomings of the candi
dato in a moral point of view.

Cormick was a Grant Republican, and
ho declares that the Administration is
trying to defeat Garfiold in Pennsylva

solution in the fact that the authorities

for 'casually speaking lo Gov. Shep

dorses the Republican National Com

The Difference. Uarfleld went to

gressional nomination, which ho ob
tained in a slrcng abolition district in
Ohio. lie wai elected in 18C2, and
that was the last of his record as a
warrior. While Hancock was fighting
at Fredericksburg, Second Bull Run,
Gettysburg, Williamsburg, in the great
buttles of tbo Wilderness, In front of
Richmond, &o., lo tho ond of tho war,
winning victory by his great ability,
energy and bravery on a hundred bat

cushioned Congressional chair, and
smirching his record with heavy fees
from contractors, stock speculations
and Biliary grabs I
Be Honest poiiOsce. Not tho least
of tbe ludicrous absurdities of the Re
publican campaign is tbe cry which
tbo organs and orators keep up in re
lation to the election laws, and the al
leged necessity ol their maintenance.
Tho ready and suflli ient answer lo all
this is tbo fuel that ibo Radical candi
date, Gen. James A. Garfield, put on
record bis omphalic condemnation of
these laws, and Irankly conceded, in a
spocch in Congress, that tbo Democ
racy bad just cause of complaint
against the partisan character of those
enactments. If the Republicans wero
not hard pressed for campaign capital
thoy would not directly and positively
antagonise tho recent and. solemn ut
tcrunces of their standard bearer.
Votes the Rkiht Ticket. When
General Jerome, a leading Republican
politician of New York, announced bis
determination to support Hancock, be
said all his family (a largo oonneclion)
would follow. Tho Radical papors of
Now York city soon published a letter
from 1 homos Jerome, a brotbor, de
claring continued adhesion to the Re
publicans. Gen. Jerome replies that
his brother Thomas is a very old man
who years ago lost his mind and that
ho would not know Iho meaning of
tho letter bearing bis signature if read
to him, and that thoretoro bo could
neithor havo written nor authorised It.
It is quite probubio, however, that a
cra:y man might express a purposo lo
adhere lo the Republican paily !
Bad Brains. Tho Washington 'gif
chimes In on tbo Radical nomineo in
this way : Tho claim that Garfield will
bo elected because ho is "a man of
brains" is not solidly founded. Tlio
uso lo which brains aro put, not tho
mere fuel of their possession, la tbe
main thing in a mailer of this sort
Wo look for Garfield's defeat for these
reasons, among others : 1st. Tbe De
mocracy havo a majority of voles, to
pile up against him. 2d. He has made
a bud uso of his admitted brain-power,
Hud he boon loss strong in intollectnal
resources be would bo moro excusable
for tbo slips and crooks in his record-
as that record exists in Iho archives of
A Thundering Tri tii. Tbo Spring
Hold (Mass.) Republican, an organ ol
'tho loyal millions" of tbo Plymouth
Rock persuasion, in alluding to the
Presidential question, remarks: "Re

Tnr True 1nwardnrss.-TIio Louis
ville Courier-Journal docs not think
that the Republican National Com
mittee will undertake a serious can
vass in tho South. It says : "Tho rea
son they carefully refrain from stump
ing tho Southern States is that tbey
know, if thoy go thero and conduct a
campaign, they will simply provo to
the Northern Republicans that they
have been lying about the Soulh. By
pretending that thoy will be shot as
soon as they stop on Sotithera soil tbey
can koep np bitterness, and that la the
soe aim of Ibo Republican loaders.
Tho Courier-Journal is oply half right.
A superior reason for tho neglect
shown by the Republican party in
nursing its Southern strength is to bo
found in a hoped for solidity at tbe
North. This hope is now nearly aban
doned, and tho Republicans are detor
mined to re establish their party in

General Garfield, whilo in tho army,
was nominated for Congress and got
a "leavo of absence on account of

Hayes bo "ought to bo scalped '' He

The Rkiht Tiiino Gon. Chalmers,
of Mississippi, who was badly whip,
ped by Hancock, at Gettysburg, in '03,
suggests n mooting of the surviving
officers of the Foderal and Confeder
ate lines on tho old contested field. It
will not bo surprising if the meeting
of Union and Confederate veterans at
Gettysburg, suggested by Gen. Chal
mers should turnout a big thing. "Lot
us shake hands on Cemetery Heights,"
says General Chalmers, "on the spot
where Hancock fell, after bia gallant
struggle bad turned the tide of batlle
in fuvor of the cause ho loved." There
are a good many old Second Corps

A BROTHER SHOOTS 1118 BISTER FIVE
Danville, Va., July 9. Last night
about midnight Thomas do Jarnctte
entered a bagnio boro inquiring for
Mollie de Jarnetto, an inmate thereof.
She appeared, recognised him as her
brother, and at his request wenl with
him to a private room. A few minutes
later repeated pistol shots were beard
from the room. The polico wore called
in and found the door fastened. Tbey
broke il down and discovered tho girl
lying on Iho floor weltering in her own
blood, her brother standing by her,
pistol in band. Ho immodiulely con
fessed having done it to wash .out tbe
disgrace of his family by bis sistor's
conduct. He surrendered himself to
the officers and bas beon committed to
jail. IIo declares his willingness to
accept the penalty or the law. Mod
ical examination showed tbat the girl
was shot in fire places, two at least
necessarily fatal, and that she cannot
survive. She protests that her brother
waa right in taking her life, and begs
that be be not punished. On their
separation after tbo tragedy the broth
er and sister embraced with mu
tual torgivoooss and tears of grief.
The girl is only 17 years old and wont
wrong but a few months since. She is
romarkablyintolligcntnnd fino looking.
Her brother is about 20 and is a rail
road agent and telegraph operator at

is the widow of Dr. James do Jarnetto,
and lives in Caswell county, N.C.,

tbo last two weeks telling tho country
tbat William U. English was over bo

John Ferry, Mr Dear Sir: I was
very glad to receive your.kind letter
of the 28th ult. I very Bincorely
thank you for it. As my friend, I want
you to feel assured that I have no
grievances growing out of the Cincin
nati Convention. Tbo New York dele
gation assurod the delegations from
olher States that 1 could not carry that
Slate, and tbat prevented my support
Irom them. A State that doubled us
ability to carry New Y'ork did well not
to support mo. I want you to bo as
sured also that I will most cheerfully
and oarnestly do my part to secure
success, as will all my friends in this
Stole. We will curry the Stuto. The
ticket takes very well, and makoa some
fains from tbe Republican ranks. We
are no spocial return of bard limes,
Buch as you doscribe as appearing in
Now Jersey and Pennsylvania, biit'the
impression prevails that wo ought to
bavo a chango of national administra

or the ticket. With best wishes, truly

staff, he ia not for the Ohio man for
President. Gon. Roscncrnns presided
the othor eveping at a Hancock nttifi
cation mooting in San Francisco., and
mado an eloquent Democratic SDcecb.
He intimated tbat the Buckeye man
remained in tbe army too short a pe
riod to roaliao tho true danger a sol
iNyiisiTlVB. The Pittsburgh Com
mercial Gazelle it extremely anxious
to know "in what particular part of
Pennsylvania General Hancock bas
bis residence." On one occasion Gen
eral Hancock bad a temporary resi
dence at Gettysburg. The "particular
part" was Roand Top. His present
residence Is in tho gratoftil hearts of
tho pcoplo ol Pennsylvania.
Pitch iN.-w-From tbo way the Rod
iruls are denouncing Gonoral Uuncock
as a Boldier, we would infer that Gen
oral Garfield's military record was tu
bo igiioicd, anil the ret old of (ingress
was to curry bim through. One rea
son assigned for this is, tbut Ham-nek
deeds so belitllo them of Garfiohls
tbut Edison's electric light Would bard
ly bring Ilium out us hack-ground eur
rotindiiigfl with Haucock's military
beuring as a oentral figure.
His Ghief. Crier, tho fellow who
nominated Garfield and who was led
to beliove that nothing less than a for
eign mission or a first place In Gar
field's Cabinet would bo a rewurd for
bis services, has offered to soil out bis
chances for a pint of peanuts. Dan.
Dougherty lull him ont colder than a
wodge, and he is considering the ex
pediency und propriety of having In
name changed from Grier to Grief.
The Clean Thinci. Dr. Alexander
N. Dougherty, Postmaster under Grunt
ut Newuik, New Jersey, proclaims for
Huncock, who, bo says, will be the
next Preside nl. Ho declares that some
of bis Republican friends huve ussured
him that tbey would voto for Hun
cm k. Snys Dr. Dougherty. "We don't
want any President who accepts bribes
or perjures himself or w ho has even
the suspicion of taint about bim."
