Junka, tbo Dcihocmlic condidato Air Supremo Judtro, is in bis forty-firth year. Jle is tho youngcHt of ten children, and wan born in 1'unx sntawnoy, Jefferson county, Pa., March 20, 183G. His father, a pliysi cian, was descended from B Welsh Qualjr family who were among tho early settlors of Philadelphia. II is mother wiih a daughter of tbo Rov. D, Barclay, u Scoteli Presbyterian minis lor. When Mr. Jonks was a child, bis eldent brother, D. B. Jonks, who was a lawyer, was teaching him to count a bundled, and casually at-ked him what business be would follow when be beeamo n man. The reply was, "Wait till to morrow morning and I will tell you." During tho night tho determination was formed, and tho next morning communicated by tho subject of this sketch, tbat he would be a lawyer. This purpose, so early formed, was unaltorably fixed. Thence forward bis every labor and study was directed to lite purpose ol bis lilo To there early studies is largely to bo attributed bis capability to deal with original legal questions, auch as bo manifested on tbo impeachment of Secretary Jielknap, tbo discussion of tbo Louisiana and Oregon cases before tbo Electoral Commission, and the do bato on tbo distribution of tho Geneva Award. When attending the common sebool, one of the readers then in nso was the Introduction to tho English Reader, In this, ono of tbo lessons was the story of the "Noble Baskot-makor." Krora the story the moral was derived that every man, no difference what bis circumstances or purposes in lifo might bo, should learn a trade. This moral be determined to act upon, When fourteen years old bis fntbor died. At sixteen lie entered upon an apprenticeship of two years to tbo carpenter and joiner trade. Whon bis torm oxpirod, ho worked at bis trude, taught school, and occasionally was employed at civil engineering, till be entered college Whilo ongnged in the latter vocation, in the (Spring of 1855, ho assisted to lay out Omaha, in Nebraska. In the full of tbat year be entered the junior class at Jefferson College, having iu tho mornings and evenings, while teaching and working steadily pursued his literary studies. lie bad been entered as a student of law before be entered oollego, and tho lion. W. P, Jenks, who was bis Ktiar- dian, bad Irom early boyhood, directed bim in bis legal and literary reading. Ho graduated at Jefferson Col logo in tbo class of 185R, and in Pobruary, 1859, was admitted to tho bar, In Jefferson county, having finished bis legal studies undor bis elder brother, I . W. Jenks. At tbo Septombor torm, 1859, holed in conducting bia first caso in Court, which was an all-important ono to his clients, a widow and her minor chil dren, whose all was their home, and that homo was dependent upon the re sult of tho caso. He was onnoaed bv the leading legal talent ut the bar, including Hon. Isaao O. Gordon, lion. William P. Jonks and Hon. O. W. Zolglor. Ho won tbe caso and tlionro lorward was employed in most of the important causes in his own county, and bis namo soon became familiar in many of tho Courts of west ern and central Pennsylvania, to which bo was called for the trial of important oases. When not engagod in tho Courts, his life has been one of constant atudy and preparation. Ho novor sought publio position, but was known as a CLEARFIELD, Democrat. In tbe fall of 1874 be was tendered tho Democratic nomination for Congress in the 25th district of Pennsylvania, against Gen. Hurry Whito. Tbo district was hoavily Re publican, but his personal popularity and tho tidal wave elected him to tho 41th Congress. Speaker Korr ap pointed him Chairman of tbo Com mittee on Invalid Pensions A mas torly report on the condition and work ing of tho pension bureau, derived from investigation by order of tbo House, bo soon made, and followed this by a bill which was calculated to prevent luluro abuses. Bounty land warrants, which beloro this bad been personal prororly, and become the plunder ot a dishonest ring, which at ono single timo bad (eir.ed upon ovor ono hundred thousand acres ot land, were changed to reality, through bis efforts, and to guarded that only the rightful owners, their legal heirs or ussigns, could obtain thorn. His forensic ability first became known to tho Houso in a discussion concerning the character of an Invalid Pension. He had assorted that an In valid Pension, for death or disability of a soldier in the service, in tho lino of bis duty, was a contract right. This was denied by soino of tbo leading Re publicans of the Houso, who alleged it was a mero gift of gratuity, and a warm debato ensued, at tho conclusion of which Mr. Junks made a legal argu ment, tracing tho legislation on the subject from and since tbo Revolution ary war, and establishing so couclus ively the position ho assumed, that it has not since been denied. This was soon succeeded by a legal discussion concerning tho refusal of Hullott Kil bourno to testily bef'oro acommitleo of tbo House. ' Tho legal prominence be hud already (attained led tho House to elect him as ono of tho seven managers on part of tho House to conduct tbo impeach mentof Secretary Belknap, tho others being Messrs. Lord, Knott, Lynde, MuMuhon, Hoar and Lapham. On that trial befu'ro tho Senato the De fendant was represented by three leading lawyers of tho Nation Hon. Joremiah S. Black, Hon. Mutt Car penter and Hon. Montgomery Blair. Mr. Jenks was selected by the managers as one of tho Committee to draw the pleadings. Ho was afterwards ap pointed to mnko ono of tho arguments on the quuslion of tbo jurisdiction of tho Senate to impeach after tbe olHccr had resigned, and subsequently, in consequence of tho illness of Mr. Lap ham, ho was selected to discuss tho facts. His legal attainments were on this trial mado conspicuous to tbo Senate and the Nation, and conceded to bo unsurpassed by any in the cause. Tbo subject of tho distribution of tho Gcnova Award came before tbe Houso on majority and minority re ports from tho Judiciary Committee Mr. Jenks offered an amendment to the majority report, and iu support of llio amendment and report as amended mado an argument involving some of tho most difficult questions of interna tional law. The report, as amended by bim, was passed by tho House. Soon after the meeting of the aocond session be was appointed by Speaker Rundall one of tbo committee of fifteon, to Investigate the conduct of tho elec tions in Louisiana, and on his return was appointed by the Chairman of the Democratic Caucus, with Mr. Field ol Now York, and Mr. Tucker of Vir ginia, to represent tbo Democracy of tbo Houso in preparing, presenting and discussing the facts and tho law before the Electoral Commission. Itfcll to Mr. Jenks to mnko tho opening arguments in tho eases of Louisiana and Oregon. While he wasongaged in llio discussion of the first of these cases boforo the Com mission, Sonalors Thurman and Bayard sat sido by Bide. Senator Bayard passed a note of admiration of tbe argument to Senator Thurman, and in response received the following reply ; "Tho more I hoar this man, tho more I admire him. Ho reasons like a Nowton'or LaPlaco. He has spoken half an hour and has not uttorod a superfluous word." This compliment ary opinion was genorally concurred in by tboso who heard or read tho pro ceedings before the Elocloral Com mission. In most of tbo legal discussions that aroso in the Houso Mr. Jenks partici pated, in audition to tbo full perforin ancoof his duties on tbe very laborious Committee ol which ho was Chairman. At tho expiration of his congressional term, he immediately resumed his pro fessional pursuits, in which be has ever sinco boon engaged. His extens ive praolico has included almost every branch tbat arises in the State and covers a voty broad range of Area. His election to the Supremo bench of the Slate will be but a just recognition of bis superior legul attainments. Crime Upon Crimi. Juduo Black has boen liberally quoted by tho Re publican papers as testifying Garfield's furity in the Credit Mohiiier matter, n reply to a direct question, be now confirms his former statements, but makes his meaning clearer, in those ords : 'Did I mean la my teller to Mr. Illalao tbat General MarBHd acknowledged tbo receipt ef atoek and dividenda Irom ako. Aiaoir Unqoea ttonably he egread to take the atoek and did re eaiea dividend, opoa It. The letter plainly im pliea tbat he had ooncealed or tried to eoneeel tbat fact from ma. lint nil adiaiiiion wal coupled with a atatement which ahowed him to be gullt leae." Now, wholber Garfield took the dividenda innocently or otherwise, bis subsequent statement under oath and bis persistent denials over sinco must condemn bim in the eyes of honest people wbo admire truthfulness and bate the crime ot perjury. It is bail enough to lie about such matters, but to commit porury is awful I Lou "Patbor, tbo lecturer at the hall to-night said luner rays were only concentrated luminosity ol the earth s satellite What do you think about it?"

The author of tbo folloning clear and convincing TIIIHTY-SEYEX DEASOXS is well known to us. A Democrat up to the timo ol tbo Kansas-Nebraska troubles, bo then took tho Douglas viaw ( things, and dur ing the war became actively identified with tbo Republican parly. Ho has voted with tho Republican party ever since, though often restivo under tbo disprtt'wfl- r,al--t1ti7 try a aeifiab and corrupt leadership. The nomina tion of General Hancock brings him fully to tbo light of day, and bo gives tindcniablo reasons lor tho fitilh by which ho is now guided : BECAUSE The Republican nominee, General Gur field, has been declnred a corrupt and unworthy man by mmy of the high est authorities of his own parly. BECAUSE Many of tho Independent Kenubli- eans of bis own district adopted and widely circulated a resolution which arraigned and denounced hint "lor bis corrupt connection with tho Credit Alobilicr; lor bis fulio denials thereof before his constituents: tin his perjur ed denial thereol beloro a Committee of bis peers in Congress; for fiaud among his coiiniiluenu, in circulating among I hem a pamphlet purporting to ml loi ill the finding ol said Committee and tbo evidenco aguinst bim, when in fact material portions thereof were omitted and gurbled. HECAl'SE These same Independent Republican constituents also arnigned and charg ed him "with corrupt bribery in sell ing bis official influence, as Chairman of the Committee on Appropriations, for five thousand dollars to tho Du (iolycr pavement lini?, to aid them in securing a contract from the Board ot I'ublio Works of the District of Colum bia, Felling his iuflurnco to aid said ring in imposing Uon the people of said .District a pavement, which is al most worthless, tit threo times ils cost; selling his influence m aid such ring in procuring a contract, to procure which it corruptly uid ninety seven ihoasund dollars lor influence ; selling bis influence in manors that involved no question of law, npon tho shallow pretext that bo was acting as a law yer; selling his influence in a manner so palpable and clear as to be lound and doclurcd by an impartial and com petent Court, upon an isstio solemnly tried." BECAUSE Tbat samo body of the Independent Republicans of General Garfield's own irrespective ol lormer or purty attach district called npon t licit fellow citizens, mcntfl, who desired honest government to unito with them in an effort to do teat Genera) Garfield, and elect in his stead an honest and reliablo man ; and becauso such efforts have elicited so much sympathy at various times in tbo district where General Garfield is best known, that if it had not contain ed one of tho very largest Republican district majorities in tho entire United States, bo would long sinco have been remanded to deserved obscurity and disgrace, for the reason and on tbe ground that bo is a dishonest and cor rupt man. BECAUSE General Garfield's connection with tbo De Golycrv pavement transaction, was not only an unworthy and dishonest act, which no man deserving tho sup port of tbo honost members of any party could commit, but a direct vio lation ot one of tho best and most uso ful laws over passed by tbo Republican party, which duclures that for precise ly such acts as General Garfield com mitted in connection with this trans, action, ho and all other criminals guilty of tho same offense should be punished by lino, by imprisonment, nnd by be ing declared forever iucnpnblo of hold ing any offlco of honor, trust or profit under tho government of tbo United Slates. ' BECAUSE It is tbe duty of ovory honost citizen, without distinction of party, who wishes to secure tor himself and bis posterity tho blessings of bonest gov eminent, and aid in the enforcement of such law, and to put an ineffaccublo brand of disgraco upon tho corruplion isls who violate them. BECAUSE On account of General Garfield's guilty complitily with some of tho most cor rupt schemes by winch tho National Treasury has ever been despoiled, bo would not bavo tho power to resist tho clamors and demands of other spoils men if bo should bo elected President ot tho United States. Tho most cor rupt elements of tho Republican party would find in bim a congonial confed erate, as bis own record establishes his his complicity with their crimes, and proves his readiness to violate his pri vato and his official oath, to sacrifice bis honor, to degrado bia manhood, and to betray his trust as holder of the purse-strings of tbo Nation. BECAUSE Tbe agencies now actively employed to secure the election of General Gar field, in spito of the horror his crimos have inspired in tho hreasls of many honest Republicans, are of a corrupt and corrupting nature, inasmuch aa tbo main reliance of tho present party managers is upon the lavish uso ol'im moneo turns of money, wrung Irom employes of tho government, in defl ance of tho Civil Sorvico Rules laid down at tho commencement ol tho ad ministration of President Hayes, and from local party leaders who have been enriched by municipal abuse.'. BECAUSE Men whoso sole interest in elections hinges upon regaid for tho welfare of their country, nnd who are not tho partners, nor tho dupes, nor the de pendants of tho leaders who wield gov ernmental powers for the puipnsoof enriching themselves, cannot maintain tboir soll respoct by acting as tbe ac complices of notorious enrrnptionists. BECAUSE Every intelligent cilir.cn knows that under the dominion of tho Republican party the noble State of Pennsylvania has held a subordinate and disgraceful position at tho National Capitol, not withstanding the great services she has ronderotl to tbe Republican party, and the virtues and brilliant talents of many of her Ilopublicao cilitona, and meanwhile the management of tho leading Republican cities of the State and of matters oonnectfd with State government has often fallen into the bands of unworthy men. BECAUSE Numerous attempts mudu to restore ronnsylvania to hor truo position and to purify bor counsels, wbicb bin god on the hopo of effecting a radical re form within tho lines of tho Republi can party, havo disastrously lulled on account of tho thoroughness with which ils tnachinorv has been pervert ed and controlled by leaders wbo wore oniony opposed to pure government. BECAUSE The best and only hope of a trium phant vindication of tbe motto of tbo Commonwealth, "Virtuo, Liberty and Independence," binges upon a Na tional Democratic triumph, under tbo leadership of the most distinguished and patriotic of Pennsylvania's living sons. BECAUSE , Every living principlo of genuine Re publicanism has so often beon violatod by influential leaders of tho Renubli- cttn parly of Pennsylvania, that that organisation has become Republican only in namo. Tho vital spark bas fled, and tbo controlling element of inul which remains is a putrid corpse. BECAUSE Garfield, after remaining in tho Union army long enough to bo of a little sorvico to tbo causo ho espoused, aban doned tho army lor tho purposo of tak ing a scat in congress, at a time and under cirenmstancos similar to those of which President Hayes declared, "that any Union officer who pursued such a courso deserves to be scalped." BECAUSE Tho free trade rocord Garfield mado during his fourteen years sorvico in Congress, from 18C3 to 1877, was so notoriously hostilo to tbo industrial in terests of Pennsylvania, that when Garfield was mado tho Republican caucus nominee for Speaker of tbo Houso of Representatives, soon after tho inauguration ot President Hayes, at a timo when Garfield could not even be elected, five Protectionist members of Congress from this Slnto refused to voto lor (jurheld on tho mound that bis tariff rocord could not bo satisfac torily explained to Pennsylvania Pro tectionists. BECAUSE Tbo glitter of Garfield's life has no solid und sterling basis. He is a pinch beck boalman, a pinchbeck teacher, a pinchbeck preacher, a pinebbock far mer, a pinchbock lawyer, a pinchbeck soldier, a pinchbeck statesman, and it ho should unfortunately be successltil in tbo present canvass he would bo a pinchbeck President. BECAUSE Whilo General Garfield has been de servedly condemned in tho most op probrious terms by many of his Re publican associates in Congress, by many ol bis Republican constituents, by many of tho Republican journals of tne country, and by all honest and in telligent men who havo read the fear ful record ot his corruption, General Hancock has deserved nnd received high encomiums from his fellow-citizens of all sections and parties, and stands today boforo tho American people with a career bo unspotted and distinguished tbat it is not surpassed by that of any living man. BECAUSE Of the battlo of Gettysburg, in which General Hancock wss a commanding figure, it has repeatedly been said by tho wisest men ol tho North and tho South that no event of tbe war tlid more to crush tbo Confederacy. BECAUSE Dr. Draper, tho great histotian, de clares that utter Gettysburg "freedom was master of the Continent." BECAUSE Professor Jacobs, of tho Pennsylvania Collego at Gettysburg, who was an eye-witness of the battle, writing soon after it was fought, declared that "by tho determination ot that dreadful struggle tho corner stone of the fabric which tho rebellion sought, to erect on colored bondage and the distinction of tho races of men, which God mado of ono blood, is crushed to pieces, and tbo bright days of a happy future bloom up before our vision, whon we shall onco moro bo a happy and pros perous people." BECAUSE Tbo City Councils of Philadelphia, by tho unanimous action ol all the Repub lican members, in February, lKlit, passed resolutions declaring that "the uso of Independence Hall bo granted to Major General Hancock, for tho re ception of his friends, nnd in order to afford Iho citizens ol Philadelphia an opportunity to testify their personal regard for him, and thoir appreciation of his gallantry and patriotism." BECAUSE When there were vory large Ropubli can majorities in both Houses of Con gress, in April, lKGfi, a joint resolution was passed which declared that "tho gratitude of tho American people and tho thanks of their representatives in Congress are hereby tondored to Maj. General Winfield Scott Hancock, for bis gallant, meritorious and conspicu ous share in thnt great and decisiro victory, Gettysburg." BECAUSE General Hancock in his lotter ol ac ceptance distinctly announces that "tho thirteenth, fourteenth and fif teenth nmondmonta to the Constitution of the United States, embodying the results of tho wur for tho Union, are inviolablo. If called to the Presidency I should deem it my dnty to resist, with all of my power, any attempt to impair or evade tho lull force and ef fect of the Constitution, which, in ov ory article, section and amendment, is tho supremo law of the land." BECAUSE General Ilancock has properly laid stress, in his letter of acceptance, upon too importnnco ol Honest liovornnient by declaring that "public office is a trust, not a bounty bestowed upon tho holder. No incompetent or dishonest persons should ovor bo entrusted, or, if appointed, they should bo promptly ojuctcd." BECAUSE (ioncral Hancock declare that "Ilia timo has como to enjoy tho substantial benefits of reconciliation. As ono poo pie we have common intorests. Let us enennrngo the harmony nnd goner ons rivalry among our own industries, which will revive our languishing mer chant marine, extend our commerce with foreign Nations, assist our mer chants, manufacturers and producers to dovelopo our vast natural resources, and increaso the prosperity and happi ness of our poople." BECAUSE By voting lor General Ilancock the triple duty would be performed of honoring and rewarding a distinguish ed and palriotio 8oldior-Sltesman, of rebuking a corrupt nomination, and of BLICAN. restoring a bright era of honest Gov ernment and sectional concord BECAUSE General Hancock's entire life has been devoted to tbo gallant and meritorious Borvico ol bis country. BECAUSE Tho battle now being wagered under bis leadership is a battlo of tho people for tbo honest Government of the pco plo of all sections against every up plianco that power, patronage and money can enlist in bclmlLof the mer cenary nomirico of a inorconary organ ization BECAUSE It may be truly said ot the contrast between tbo lives, records and charac ters of the two loading Presidential candidates, "that was to this, Hyperion to a satyr. BECAUSE The great sorvico General Hancock rendered to the people of Pennsylva nia, at Gettysburg, gives bim a strong er claim than any other living man to tho gratitude of the citizens of Phila delphia, and all olhor portions of Penn sylvania. When tho fact that our ar mies wore triumphant at Gettysburg was lully realized by tho brave troops wbo del'endod the Union lino, and tbey ascertained that tho enemy bad re treated, a living witness and partici pant in that great struggle declares that from tboso brave soldiers there wont up cbeors lor Meade, tho soldier, without fear or reproach, who began with a ureal victory, his illustrious career as Commander of tho Arm' of llio I'olomac ; cheers lor Hancock, who stemmed the tide of defeat on tho first day, and selected the ground on which the glorious victory was achieved, and on tho scoond day had again stnppod tho tide ot rebel victory and restored our shattered lines, and on tho tbird duy had met and repulsed the feurful assault on which Loo's all was staked, and won tbo battle that was really the death blow to the rebellion." BECAUSE Goneral Hancock, after receiving a very painful and dangerous wound, while in command at the post or great est danger at the most critical stage of tho bottle of Gettysburg, continued to direct the tight in spite ot his tear ful personal sufferings until victory was assured, and then sent Major Mitchell as tho bearer of this great message : "Tell General Meade that tho troops tinder my command bavo ropulsod tho assault of the enemy, who are now flying in all directions in my front." BECAUSE The answer to this mossage, inslitnlly sent back by General Moado, wits: "Say to General Hancock, 1 regret exceedingly that be is wounded, and I thank bim, for tho country and myself, for the sorvico ho has rendered today." BECAUSE Of the thron groat Pennsylvania Gen erals who bore a prominent and heroic part in the great stru egle at Gettys burg, one, tbe brave Reynolds, gavo up bis life in tbe causo of his country, on tho vory first day ot the conflict; another, General Meade, has passed away, to join tho immortal band of tboso "wbo sink to rest with all their country's honors blest;" while the only great survivor of this noblo trio, Genoral Winfield Scott Hancock, is living among us to day, to lead us for ward in a now struggle for pure Gov ernment, for honost rule and lor tho complete restoration ol' the Union for which ho so bravoly lought. BECAUSE " Whilo the stirring evonts wore pro gressing which constituted one of the greatest chapters in tbo world's his tory, the people of Philadelphia, and ol all other threatened portions of tho Stato of Pennsylvania, wore watching the issue or that terrible contest with a degree of painful anxiety, of trem bling fear, ol mingled dread and hope fulness, and of mortal agony, that no pen can picture and no tongue describe, i'horo was weeping and wailing in hundreds of thousands ol Pennsylva nia tamilies, which had not only sent tulhera and brothers and sons to the front, but did not know Irom hour to hour how quickly tho worst horrors of war would be brought to their hearth stones ; and then, when every availa ble and transportable articlo of wealth in the city of Philadelphia, of material value, was packod np ready to bo luken at a moment's notice to Now York; when tho trunsportablo wealth ol many portions of Southeastern Pennsylvania was buried, bid away, put on trains of heavily laden oars many miles in longtn, or so disposed of that, in tbo event ot tho realization of tho forebodings that mado many a stout heart quail, these goods could be borne to a place of salety at a moment a notice ; then, in our churches, and at all pluccs where largo numbers of porsons assembled, and in tho privato closets of all good citizens, a lervcnt prayer went up Irom tho very depth of the hearts of all our pooplo that God would send to us a deliverer. BECAUSE Genoral Hancock was, to a much greater extent than any other living man, tbe personification and directing mind of tho army of heroes by which our City and State wore saved from the indescribable koriorsof a succesHful invasion. He was the man God sent to our reseuo in answer to tho prayers of our heart stricken people. BECAUSE The Ohio Administration of tho Gov ernment has rewarded, by an import ant appointment, Goneral Longslroet, who ia tbe most prominent living Con federate General, engaged in the criti cal assault upon tho portion ol the Union line at Gettysburg, which Gen oral Hancock defended with great gallantry and success, risking in thin very struggle his own life, and receiv ing a learlully painful and nearly futal wuund. A Washington dispatch, dated, September Clh, 1880, announced Gen eral Longstreot's arrival at tho Na tional capital, lor tbs purpose ol re ceiving instructions in regard to the discharge of his duties as Minister to Turkey. Pennsylvania Republican who are not dead to all feeling of gratitude and Stato pride will rclase to anile in the effort to strike down their deliverer, who is the nohlost liv ing son ol their own Commonwealth, at a moment when tho Buckeye poli ticians who run tho Government, and who ask lor a perpetuation of their leaso of power when tbey ask you to elect Garfield, are honoring with one of tho best positions in their gift; tbe Confederate soldier who did at Gettys burg, and directly against Hancock's portion of tho Union lino, all that mortal man could do to make the in vasion of this Commonwealth success ful, to destroy our railroads, to birn our bridges, to seize our coal mines, to dovastate our rural districts, and to either destroy or impose forced loans upon our towni and cities.

We cannot strike down Gen eral Huncock for the Presidency, and by tbs samo act applaud the appojnt nient of Genoral Longslroet as Mi nis ter to Turkey, without feeling that we descrvo to have ournffn luturo lives blighted and blasted for the base sin of ingratitude. BUS IX ESS AXD POLITICS. the folly or niRTcniiiNn iidsinesh in I'SEKIPZNTIAL contests. It is so seldom tbat tbo editor of tho New York Jeriild bits any thing to say favorable to tbo Demo cratic purty that we are not often able to quoto from its columns ; but in alluding to tho great meeting held in Now York City recently, bo mado the following truthful business remarks: The speeches last night were natur ally in praiBo ol tho Democratic par ly, but lltoy contain some points which are worthy ot general attention. Mr. Belmont reminded iow lork and the country thnt while Socrctary Shorman has shown great ability in tbo rclumf. ing of the debt at a lower ra to of in terest this important financial opera tion was bcgHn only after tho Demo crats gained control of tho Houso and had ils greatest success after they pos sessed a working majority in both Houses. Capital, neither hero nor in Europe, said Mr. Belmont, Booms to havo beon alarmed at tho Democratic ascendancy, nnd tho attempt of tbo Republicans to create a public alarm now, ho thought, was willtout basis. Undoubtedly ho is right. No parly coming into power is going to destroy itself by measures injurious to the credit or honor ot the Nation. That is rather to be expected of a party demoralizod by too long possession of power and already to bid too high or stoop too low for continued support. Tho Democrats, if they should elect (ienerul Hancock, would make it thoir first aim by careful good behavior to conciliate tho confidonco of tho public, in order that thoir predominance should not bo short lived. They would bo conscious tbat oven a moderate amount ot misconduct would send them hack into a very hopeless minority. Headers, whoso memory readies back i a uuuiie-r ui a ci-mui , vtoi i t:iiiiuiiui that llio Democrats in those days used tho samo arguments against the Ko- publicans which these, after twenty years of power, now use against their opponents. In thoso ante-war times we used to road in all tbo Democratic organs terriblo predictions of ruin to tho country it tbo ilopublicans were allowed to carry an oloction. But tho just and truo reply of tho Republicans was that any parly yoked with tbo responsibility ol an administration at once becomes conservative HOBBIXO DEAD SOLDIERS. The recent discovery of an old and most izhastly system ot larceny prac ticed lor yjars on tbo property and effects of dead Union soldiers, kept in a Govornmcnt sal'o in the Treasury building at Washington, shows how important it is that tho records and archives ol tho publio service should bo thoroughly overhauled under the supervissrSsa ol a Democratic adminis tration. Tboso thefts were penetrated in tho chief clerk s room ol the second Auditor of tho Treasury, from which pocketbooks and packages cf valua bles sont thither by those wbo found ihcm on the persons of Union joldiers slain in battle at Gettysburg, Antio- tam and Bull s Run were taken and emptied of their contents. It it diffl cult to conceive of a viler or mora re pulsive form of villainy, and yet from Iho statements ot Secretary Sherman and his subordinates it appears tbat these robberies wore long a;ro k now n to have occurred, but tho scandal was "hushed up" not only until tho wretch ed crenttire who had thus spoiled Iho dead but who was nevertheless re tained in office bad died, but until Auditor French, who knew all tho circumstances, bad died also. During the present Presidential campaign much bas been said, not alono by Re publican journals and orators iu gen eral, but by Secretary Sherman bim sell in particular, as to tho freedom of the Treasury Department in Into years from speculations and cmtic.'.lo- ments. Now the poople will begin to understand this. 11 lelouics in the Treasury are husbod up and com promised it is no wonder that the rec ords look bright and pure. X. Y. II VM JWW A B EA U T1FV t. 11 Y M X WAS WltlTTKX. There is an interesting incident mentioned in the lifo of Chas. Wesley, which led to the writing ot ono of bis Hwcet hymns. One day Mr. Wesley wus silting by an open window, looking out over the beatilifial fields in Summer time. Pros enlly a little bird flitting about in tho sunshine attracted bis attention. Just then a hawk came swooping down to ward tbo little bird. Tho poor thing very much frightened was darting here and there, trying lo find some place of rolugo. In tho bright, tunny air, In the leafy trees, or tho green fields, there was no hiding place from tho fierce grasp of the hawk. But, seeing the open window, and tho man sitting by it, the bird flow in its terror toward it, and with a beating heart and quivering wing, found refuge in Mr. Wosloy't bosom. Ho sheltered it from llio threatening danger, and sav ed it from a cruel death. Mr. Wesley was at tho timo suffering severe trials, and was fooling the need of a refuge in hit own timo of trouble as much as the trembling little bird did, that nes tled in hi bosom. So he took up his pen and wrote tho hymn : "Jeaei, Savioarof my eoitl, Let m. tv Thy bneom fly. Whil. tbe wave, oftraable roil, While the Itiapeat etili ia high." A Silent Bi'sinibs Monitor An oxchango remarks: "While Conkling wat talking sectionalism to tho busi ness men of Now York in bit late groat effort 500 loaded dray wore waiting their turn at the wharves to unload goods destined lor the South. The silent commentary of such tug gestive (acts must depress the stoutest demagogue, A Bi.I'niier.

TJIK FlGlITIXa COXKL1XG. Colonel F. A. Conk ling, brother ol' Senator Roscoo Conkling, addressed a largo and enthusiastic meeting of Dem ocrats and independent Republicans on Mondny evening last in Now York, and among other things said : "Who bavo taken tbe places ol Sum ner, Chase, 'Trumbull, Seward, and other loaders', Tbo Logans, the Cain, ornns, tho Garfields and tho Colfaxo. From tbe time tboso men bavo assu ro od tho control of tho party it has beon held together by tho oohosive powor ol'plundor. And now I would liko to ask what tbat Ikpt-Wkar, jarty bos done. Tbo party has put forward a man whoso character will not hour scrutiny. They havo mado an odious, malignant aeetiuiialismtbuchiel feature ol the canvass. This man Garfield has been put forward as representing tho principles of that parly. Now I tell you ho stands before the American people as a liar, a perjurer, a bribe laker, a back-salary grubber, and, last but not least, as tbo most conspicuous figure in tho electoral fraud of 1870. Now, of courso you and I understand that the men who havo put Garliold forward must necessarily support him, iiml if their consciences will permit them lo do so I find no fault with them. But 1 do obiect to one lliinir. 1 do object to Iho Ron. Hamilton Fish declaring that 'no purer or abler man ever assisted in tho councils ol tho Nation. No bettor man can be found.' Now, wo do not expect that men liko Hamilton Fish ana George William Curtis shall throw dust in the eyes of tho American pooplo like that." Tho speaker said he thought it proper to read Thomas Jefferson's ad dress, and he quoted at length from it, and added, "I may say that there ts no man that has lived in this country who lives to up that creed hotter than Gen. Hancock." Whon bo was asked to support the nomination of Genoral Ilancock lie said he held back, having thoughts of West Point nnd of milita ry men wbo bad no experience in civil offuirs, but after ho bad read Goneral Ilancock s letters it seemed no exagger ation to'suy thnt no man who has figur ed in the affairs of this coujilry better appreciates tbe spirit of our institu tions than General UancockT- !'l have referred," he continued, "to the dilem ma in which tho Republicans rrVo plac ed. 1 feel sorry lor them; I said something just now about Hamilton 1'isli. iSow, it any gentleman should happen to hear of my brother speak ing of Mr. Garfield in that way be would oblige mo by dropping me a postal card." Cheers and luughler. One of tho important circumstances of this campaign, be thought, is that so many Republicans have come out in tho support of General H uncock. "There is no need of giving names." bo said "You know many ol them. There are about threo hundred ol them where I just catno from. They asked mo to como here and speak. They uro against tho narrow, odious sectionalism that (onus tho chief feat ure of tho Republican canvass." OX BOTH SIDES A T OXVE. GARFIELD, THE l'BETENIIED I'HOTECTION 1ST, 18 REALLI A FtlEE TRAUER. from Col. Forney', 8peeoh at Pillaburgb. In considering tho tariff question, in which you are bo deeply interested, 1 ,cei, nol wnro j.ou t1Bt t ullve i. ways favored tbu protectivo system. Its loading champions in this Stato have been my personal friends, and whenever a practical issue relating to this subject hat boon raised during tho last generation I havo united with them in buttling lor tho interest ol our noble Commonwealth. In these strug gles ono of tho most insidious and dan- -gorous opponents we have bad to en counter was James Abraham Garfield. Uo has been a decided supporter to tho Free Trndo theories which some ofthoEastorn and Woslorn Republi cans habitually support. Ho favored a reduction of the duty on pig iron whon all Pennsylvania Congressmen opposed such a reduction. Ho oppos ed the abolition of tbo duty on tea and coffee when all Pennsylvania protec tionists contended for that measure. Uo voted for tho ten per cent, reduc tion of tbo duties on all tho manufact ured products that camo into competi tion with tho insidious and injurious measure which was opposed by all true friends of American industries. Gen. Garliold has boon dazed by tho glam our of Frco Trade and tho fanciful honor of being elocted a member of tho Cobden Club. Ho bas been ready to sacrifico your intorests for the sako of winning applause, or possibly more substantial rewards for competing British manufacturers. So far was this subserviency to foreign intorests carried during fourteen years on Con gressional sorvico that when Garfield was selected, in 1877, as tbe caucus nomineo of tike Republican party tor the Speakership of tho Houso of Rep rcsentatives, five of tbo Ropublioan Congressmen of Pennsylvania includ ing some of your immediate Repre sentatives, refused to vote for General Garfiold on account of the zeal bo bad displayed in advocating Free Trado measures. THE SVX STRUCK DEMA GOGUE. We notico by a contemporary that Mr. Blaino, lalo of tho Stato of Maine, attempted to mako a speech at the Garliold mass meeting at Philadelphia, recently, but could not he heard lor tbo noi'so. He finally managed to ut tor these words: "I have come Ave hundred mllca to aay to tbl, great Commonwealth, ia which I bavo the pride aad honor of bkilbright, that thcelectloaof ilan eoek la a menace to the great Indoitriaa of lb. llnitcd Ktatei, and with thia thooght na yonr mind, I have no doubt that yen will give, on tbo 7d of November, ao overwhelming majority for Uenvral Uartteld " Mr. Blaino must bavo imagined that the pooplo of Pennsylvania have be come very ignorant sinco bo emigrated from tho Siato. That be traveled five hundred miles to say what be did say is proof positive that ho regards Phila delphia people as a sot of greon noma and Ignoramuses. Mr. Blaino might as well have saved himself the trip. Pcnnsylvanians know Hancock, their fellow-Ponnsylvaniun, and (hoy also know tbat he ran be trusted on the Tariff question as a Ponnaylvaman, whilo Garfield's wholo record thowt that so far as that question it concern ed the Ohio candidate ia not in sym pathy with the purpose of the Penn sylvania protectionists. Mr. Blaine had better go back to Maine at onca and try to keep the majority for Han cock in that Slate down to a reasona ble figure. II API'Y Stii.l.
