THE TWO OCTOIKR ST A TKS.
Indiana casts Ulteon electoral voles
anil Ohio casts twenty-two. They
hulli bold Statu elections in October,
and these elections will he watched
with anxious intercut by tho munagurs
ol the two great parties. The third
party this year will make but a suiull
figure in tho National content. The
venurublo Peter Cooper, who may be
suid to represent ils best element, was
quick to acknowledge this fuel by his
visit to General II uncock.
In 187G the vote for President in In

Tho volo of 1878 was about 17,000
Bhort of that of 1870, and with this de
ficiency tho Democrats lost lft.OOO and
the Republicans 28,000 on tho total
poll. J 1 once, it is upparont that tlio
defection to tho Nationals was greater
on tho Republican than on tho Demo
cratic side. During tho past year sev
eral thousand negroes woro colonized
in Indiana with tho expectation of cap
turing tho Stnto by that movement.
But tho practical effect of tho ullempl
seems to havo resulted injuriously for
tho Riipublicun by a reliction against
this partisun munu'uvru.
In 1K7G tho voto lor President in
Ohio stood as follows :
ll.TC 3:iO,AV8 Tild.o 124,112
1Ib;ci' niNjority, 7,6111.
A chango of less than ono and a half:
per cent, on Hayes' voto would havo
given the Sluto to Tilden.

The voto was 11,730 greater than in
187ti. It is well known that many
hard-money Democrats refused to sup
port Kwii.g, while on the other hand
he did not satisfy the Grccnbuckcrs.
These figures exhibit tho political
condition of tho two States Indiana
strongly inclining to tho Democrats
and Ohio to the Republicans. Tho
candidacy of General Hancock brings
a new element into the contest which
will reinforco tho Democracy in both
States, and ought to bo decisive in
each. But It would bo worso than un
wise to count upon accessions which
aro contingent on circumstances, and
it would be foolish, even if tbey woro
reasonably sure, to abate any effort ot
to relax any energy on that aocount.
Tbo Republicans will concentrate
their resources, their uppliances, und
all tho official machinery on Indiana
and Ohio, knowing full well that if
cither bo lost they aro certainly beaten.
Tho Democrats cannot do better than
organize their cumpuign on a similar
basis. They aro in a condition to cur
ry both States, and the battle should
bo fought with tho resolution to make
tho victory crushing at the outset. A
decisivo triumph in October would
sctllo tbo Presidential election, and

States' Riiiiits. It is timo for such
Republicans as have common -honesty

Clearfield, Pa., July -9, 1880.
Mr. Editor: How tho issue in tho
coming Presidential contest may pre
sent itself to others, 1 am unablo to
predict, but to me tbe greatest and
most vital issuo of this camiiaii'ii Is.
"Shall the right of tbo people to gov
ern bo maintained or lost." This sin-
glo issue, fraught with such vitul in
terest, not only to tho common weal
of tho country, but to the personal lib
erty of every citizen, rises so high
above tho partisan issue in Presiden
tial contests in tlio past, and is so Na
tional In all its sequences, that il
should not bo considered as an issuo
between political parlies. When tho
right of tho people to govorn a right
tnul lias boon won at sucb a learlul
cost of blood and treason is lost, all is
lost that has been won by tho Ameri
cuu people since the first gun w us liicd
on Bunkur Hill. This right is tho
keystone of our temple ol liberty, und
if it bo taken away, all othor liberties
and privileges we enjoy, and whicb
thia, the grandest leuluro of our gov
ernment supports and maintains, will
pass away and leuvo us a Nation with
out a form of government.
That it now is, and has been for years,
the willful, deliberate und premodila
ted determination of tho Republican
party to deprivo the people of tho right
to chooso their rulers by tbe f reedom
and legul force of the ballot, in too well
defined and too clearly proven to ad
mit of oven a reasonably truthful do
nial. In tho carpel-big governments of
Southern Status, after they had been
reconstructed, was one of tho first und
most porlentious advances toward tho
destruction of personal civil liberty and
tho cBtablishinrnt of a military, or
"strong'' contralized lorni ol govern
ment in this fountry. No person who
closely observed the conduct of tho
Genurul Government in moulding or
munipulutin' Statu governments for
tho reconstructed States, could help
but too plurily seo that the adminis
tration parly abrogated and disregard
ed all ll constitutionally guaranteed
powers 'f Statu government, and set
at armul defianco tbo constitutional
right of a majority of the legal elec
tors in those States to choose their
Tlienuguiu, when a Republican Con
gress jnssed and enfored the "Mur

an insu't to every honest voter in tlio
oaunlrr, and the ctlbcl of which, us
has ben clearly proven, win to deprive
the people of their rights which aro
guuru-ilccd to them hy constitutionul
powo". As un evidence of tho work
ing of this iniquitous bill: In tho city
of Now York thoso "Murshuls" arrest
ed thousands ol naturalized voters,
charging some irregularity in tho cer
tificate of citizenship. The next day,
when tho election was ovor, mid tbo
citizen had lost bis voto by reason of
Ins arrest, ho was released without
This is one more act showing that
tho Republican parly is afraid to trust
un honest expression of tbo people at
tho ballot box in vindication of their
party rule. It is rot tho will of tho
people they want that is just what
they don't want.
The last, tho greatest, tho most glar
ing and damnable evidence, and clear
est proof that the Republican party
uro determined, by means lair or foul,
to dnminuto the will ol the people, was
tbo larceny of the highest position
known to Americans. Tho success
with which they met in stealing tho
Presidency in 18"(J by tho wholesale
purchase of Returning Boards to forgo
und fraudulently alter tho result of the
electoral voto in tho several Status, und
tho corruption ord debauching of the
highest judicial tribunal known in tho
land, to their political purposes, is so
elear and so positive in its proof that
thoro is no law, either civil or divino,
thul they would not brush aside and
tramplo under foot to accomplish tbo
pnrposo of their parly.
Between tho two candidates Tor
President on tho Democratic and lie
publican tickets, thoro is no compari
son. America, with a tree govern
ment over ono hundred years old, and
with a population of nearly fifty mill
ions in tho wholo annals of our histo
ry, there is recorded but two names in
whicb combine and bland together the
ruro attainments of truo military gon
itis, profound statesmanship, and patri
otism. Ono was Washington, who
fought tho good fight and won for his
pooplo tho grandest and most liberal
form of government ever bt'Btowed on
man. Tho other is tho Democratic
candidato for President, General W.
S. Hancock, who drew his sword and
buttled all through the durk days of
the Rebellion to maintain and band
down to posterity that same form of
government with all its liberties and
privileges that Washington and bis pa
triots wrung Irom King Goorgo. The
record of General Hancock has not lo
be detended. Ho has too often on tbe
field of battle worn the "bloody Bbirt,"
and with bis sword subscribed bis de
votion to his country and the supremacy
of constitutionul law, to havo any ono
doubt his loyalty or question his patri
otism. Organization. We notico tbnt the
Democratic National Committee has
appointed two Committees ono to
havo charge ol tho distribution of doc
uments and newspapers, and tbo other
to arrange for speakers. On the lormer
Committee aro Senator William A.
Wallacc.of Pennsylvania, tlie Chairman
of the National Congressional Commit
too ; Orostus Cleveland, of Now Jorsoy,
and Bradley B. Smalley, of Vermont.
Tho Committee on speakers consists of
Abram S. Howitt.of Now York j Win.
Pinckncy Wbyto, of Maryland, of the
Congressional Commiltoo, 11.11. Buyer,
of Pennsylvania. General Duncan S.
Walker, of Washington, D. C, was
made Secretary ol tho Committee.
Hancock and Stewart. On the
17th of June, ISC., Gen. Hancock, at
Spottsylvania, captured twenty pieces
of artillery and 5,000 prisoners. Among
tho latter wero Gen. Edward Johnson
and General George U. Stewart. When
General Stewart was brought in, Hun
cock, who had been an old army Iriend,
held out hia band and said: "Stewart,
I am glad to seo you." But Stowart
drew back and replied : "Under tbo
circumstances, sir, I cannot take your
band." "And under any oilier nir
cumstanecs" said Hancock, "I would
not have offered you my hand."
A La roe Man Tho editor of tho
Petroleum WortJ embosoms himself
after thia manner: "Sitting in the
judgment scat, as wo do, valuable
opinions aro expected of us on all
mannor of subjects. As to Garfiold
although Garfield la a fino haired man
and a Christian statesman il the
$5,000 in controversy was simply a
feo, as wo understand be claims it was,
why then wo fear he is loo high priced
for President, Thia is, or ought to be,
a poor man's country, and wo want a
modest man for our President."
peter Sutton, lalo Greenback candi
dato for Slate Treasurer, lays that
Harry White will be defeated for Con

ticket for Legislature in Indiana coun

A riA.NK AND PATRIOTIC LETTER
New York Citv, July 2!, 1H80.
Gentlemen : I have tho honor to
acknow ledge the receipt of your letter
of July 13, 1S80, apprising mo form
ally of my nomination to tbo oftlco of
President ol tho United Slates hy tho
National Democratic Convention lately
assembled in Cincinnati. 1 accept tlu
nomination with grateful appreciation
of tho confidence reposed ill me.
Tho principles enunciated by the
Cuiitvi.liti Ai'e thoso 1 have cherished
in tho past and shall endeuvor to
maintain in the future. Tlio thirteenth,
fourteenth and fifteenth amendments
to tho Constitution of the United
Stutus, embodying the results of the
war lor tlio Union, aro inviolable. It
called to tho Presidency I should
deem it my duly to resist with ull my
powur any attempt to impair or evade
tho full forco and effect of tbe Consti
tution, which in every article, section
and amondmcnt, is tho supremo law
of tho land.
THE L'NIOM I'NIIES TUE CONSTITUTION.
The I onstitution forms the basis of
the Government of tho United Status.
The powers grunted by it to the Legis
lative, Exocutivo and Judicial Depurt
menu define and limit the authority
of tlio General Government. Powers
not delegated to tho United States, by
the Constitution, nor prohibited by it
lo tho Slutos, belong to tho Stales
respectively or to the peoplo. Tlio
General and Sluto Governments, each
acting in its own sphere without trench
ing upon the lawf ul jurisdiction of tbo
other, constitute the Union. This
Union, comprising a (ioneral Govern
ment with general powers and Sluto
Governments with Stnto powers for
purposes local to tbo States, is a polity,
the foundations of which wero laid in
tho profoundust wisdom. This is tho
Union our fathers made, and which
has been so respected abroad and so
bencficient at borne. Tried by blood
and fire it stands to day a model form
of tree popular Government, a political
system which, rightly administered,
bus been and will continue to bo tbe
admiration of tho world. Mny wo not
say, nearly intbe wordsof Washington,
the unity of Govornmonl which consti
tutes ps ono peoplo is justly dear to us?
It is the main pillar in tho edillco of
our real independence, the support of
our poaco, salety and prospority and
of that liberty wo bo highly prize and
intend at every hazard to preserve.
FRAHD MUST NOT SUBVERT POPULAR
Hut no form of Government, how
ever carefully devisd, uo principles,
however Bound, will protoct tlio rights
of tho peoplo unless the administration
is faithful and cfllciont. It is a vital
principle in our system that ncithor
fraud nor forco must be allowed to sub
vert tho rights of the pooplo. When
fraud, violunco or incompetence con
trols, tho noblest Constitutions and
wisest laws aro useless. Tbo bayonet
is not a fit instrument lor collecting
tho votes of frocmen. It is only by a
full voto, frco ballot and loir count
that tho people can rulo in fuct as re
quired by the theory of our Govern
ment. TaUo tho foundation uwuy
and tho wholo structure fulls.
PUBLIC OFFICE A TRl'BT.
Public ollico is a trust, not a bounty
bestowed upon tho holder. No incom
petent or (Jislioncsl persons sbould
ever bo entrusted with it, or, if appoint
ed, they should be promptly ejected.
Tbo basis of a substantial, practical
civil service reform must first bo es
tablished by the pooplo in filling tho
elective offices. If they fix a high
standard of qualifications for oflico and
sternly reject tho corrupt and incom
petent, the result will be decisive in
govorning tbo action of the servants
whom they entrust with appointing
LET US HAVE PEACE.
The war tor the Union was success
fully closed inoro than flftcon years
aim. All classos of our people must
share alike in tho blessings ol tho
Union and are equally oonceriwd id
its porpotuity and in the proper admin
istration of public affairs. Wo are in
a stnto of profound peace. Henceforth
let it be our purpose to cultivato sonli
ments of friendship and not of animos
ity among our fellow-citizens. Our
material interests, varied and progress
ive, demand our constant and united
efforts. A sedulous and scrupulous
care ol the public credit, togotber witb
a wise and economical management of
our governmental expenditures, should
bo mantainod, in ordor that labor may
be lightly burdenod and that all per
sons may be protected in their rights
to the fruits of their own industry. ,
Till WAT TO PROSPERITY.
The timo haa como to enjoy tbo sub
stantial benefits of reconciliation. As
ono pooplo we have common inlorcsts.
Let us encourago the harmony and
generous rivalry among our own in
dustries which will revive our languish
ing merchant marino, extend our com
merce with foreign nations, assist our
mcrchanUi, manufacturers and produ
cers to develop our vast natural ro
soui cos and incrcaso tho prospority
and happiness of our peoplo.
If elocted I shall, with tbo Divine
favor, labor with what ability t pos
sess to discharge my duties witb fidel
ity according to my convictions, and
shall tako care to protoct and defend
tho Union and to seo that the laws bo
faithfully and equally executed in ull
ports of tbo country aliko. I will as
sumo tbo responsibility fully sensible
of the fact that to administer rightly
the functions of tlio Government is to
disc hargo tho most sacred duly that
can devolve upon an Amoiican citizen.
1 am, very respoctfully, yours,
Winfield 8. Hancock.
To tho Honorable John W. Sto
venson, President of tho Convention ;
Honorable John P. Stockton, 'Chair
man, and others of tbo Committee of
Iho NnttnnM Democrfttlc fonvn!inn
It is said that General Hancock boa
" so small a civic record. " Il is email
for tbe reason that mont of his life has
been taken up in fighting the battlos
of bia country. Uo hud no timo to
run lor Congress. But small as his
civil record may be, it is large enough
to contain ft pacified stato and orders
and corrospondonco which reveal
statesmanship of tbo highest ordor.
His record is at the tamo lime too
small to have any Credit Mobilier, or
Do Golyer In it
He Still Lives. Ex- Gov. B. Grata
Brown, ol Missouri, announced himself
as a Democratic candidato before tho
next Legislature for the United
Status Senate. Grata was Viro Pres
ident with Groeloy, you know.
Hon. Chas. A. Harnett, ol Bloom
field, heretofore a Republican, and who
at ono timo represented Perry county
in the Legislature, has announced him
self for Hancock and English, and will
givo thorn his bearty suppoit.
Mrs. Don Cameron believes that
Hancock should be elected. Tbia is
one of tbo instances in which the boat
judgment in the family belongs to the
woman that Is provided Pon'f sick

Tho Now York ll'orJ Thinks It is
