It is believed that to carry fin the fraud

Mr. S. merits tho support of the people.
Tho aim of tho people In electing men
to office, should not be their political

for this reason do we tak tho candi

to the suffrages of our fellow citizens.

Governor Dlx, of New York, ad'
dressed a large Republican meeting at
the Cooper Institute Monday night. At
Ute conclusion of his speech he was
greeted with loud cries of "IIow about
the third term?" He replied that he
did uot come to thrust any opinion of
his Into the canvass, but said he would
answer that question fiankly lest his
silence should be misconstrued, and
added, "I say, then, distinctly, that
am uot In favor of a third term." The
Governor's statement was received with
euUiiixluatle cheers. Ho concluded by

a third term existed anywhere, and that

Tho Republicans of this district havp
nominated their candidate for Congress,
It will no doubt be generally conceded
by men of all parties that It would be

A close and experienced observer, well
acquainted with men and things, with
an Intlmato knowledge of the business
and resources of the country, ho would
make just such a representative jn Con
gress as the people of Pennsylvania
might well feel proud of.
A. W. BUTLER, Esq.,
of Mauch Chunk, Is the nominee al
luded to. The numerical odds on the
Democratic side are too great against
him to allow any oneo fel sangulco
of his election, but his fitness for tho
position warrants us In predicting that
