A HOME INVESTMENT.
Our readers will notice an advertisement
in to-day's paper offering for sale, in sums
to suit, the bonds 'of the State bids for
which were recently received. Of the
523,u i the three great Hanking
Houses of this State, Jay Cook <k Co.,
Drexel <k Co., and E. \V. Clark & Co.,
took $10,000.000 —the remainder having
been absorbed by corporations and private
individuals. The avidity with which it
is sought for is no doubt owing to the
causes alluded to in the following extract
from the Philadelphia Telegraph, which
"Covered as this loan is by a capital
fifty times its amount, rendered secure by
the gradual extinguishment of the debt
by the sinking fund, whicli pays from one
million to one million and a half a year,
there cannot exist a shadow of a doubt as
to the perfect safety of the investment.
Looking at tlxe financial condition of the
country, we are not surprised at theeager
ness with which the loan is being sought
for. With distrust in all the marts of
trude, with little business doing, aud a !
general feeling of insecurity for the future,
it is only natural that people should select
this investment, at once permanent,should
they so desire, or in such a condition as to
be rendered instantly available in money,
should circumstances render it necessary, j
The loan is fully appreciated by our peo- !
pie, and is being taking from the hands of
the bankers holding it at a rate which
will absorb it all within ninety days. The
overdue Joan will he received, principal
and intesest, when parties purchase the j
new. Comparing our State loan with the
other investments in the market, we do
not hesitate to state that, in oureonvic- j
tion, it is the safest and mo-it desirable in- j
vestment within the reach of those who j
have capital on hand."
Several thousand dollars worth we learn
were ordered by 'Mr. Russell for parties
in this county last week; and when we
recur to the fact that a great portion of
the copperhead press continues to harp
on the National Debt, that all confidence
in Johnson's administration is lost, ami
the expressed design of copperheadism of
restoring to power and place the wicked
men who under Buchanan democracy
inaugurated the late rebellion, we are not
surprised to hear that our State liondsare
held preferable as an investment to U. S.
That copperhead papers should origi
nate till kinds of charges against republi
can legislat tires is not a matter of surprise,
as it is a part of their vocation, but that
republican editors should persist in ridic
ulous assumptions because, forsooth, th<y
could not accomplish all they wanted, is
going a little too far and saying too much.
We have never known a legislature that
pleased everybody in its acts, and we can- •
not find one-tenth as inuclr fault either in
the present or preceding assembly as some
of our cotemporaries. On the contrary a
large nuniljer of wise and judicious laws j
have been passed—the tax-payers relieved ;
from heavy burdens of State taxation
and most lilieral provisions made for sol
diers' orphan children. Less monopolies
have also been created than in former
years: temperance obtained a boon it had
in vain sought from former legislatures
by giving discretionary power to judges !
over licenses, and a disposition was man- 1
1 tested in many other things to prefer
right to wrong. All the stories got up
about increasing their pay, about bribery,
aud many other charges at
pointed politicians and copperheads snap
like hungry dogs at a bone, even if it is i
putrid, are either totally false or pervert- I
ed to suit the appetites of those who would
worship Jef. Davis as readily as Heister !

Democratic Opinion or Irish
Now that impartial suffrage is on the
eve of becoming a fixed fact, the Demo
cratic politicians, and Democratic news
] >apers, are preparing, in hot haste, to take,
advantage of the situation. The New
York World, which furnishes the brains
and the ideas for the rest of its party, re
cently devoted more than an entire page
to a laudatory notice of the negroes of
New York, and negroes generally, follow
ing up its elaborate discussion a politi
cal editorial commending and fully en
dorsing its descriptive article. The World
particularly compares the negro with the
Irish, and declares that in all essentials
they are better citizens. That all may
see that we do not misrepresent, we quote
the exact language of the World. In the
following extract, the World asserts the
"affinity" between negro men and Irish
'•lt is a somewhat remarka''!"" fact that, although be
tween an Irishman ami a black man an antipathy is
presumed to ext-t. jet between the Irish women and
the negro there exists a decided affinity. In a major
ity of eases of miscegenation, the parties are blaek
on one side and Irish on the other. As a general
rule, also, miseegenators embrace the lowest speci
mens of eaeii race, though 111 many cases precisely
the reverse statement holds true."
Next, the World asserts that the negroes
are cleaner than their white neighbors of
thesame wards and localities, which wards
and localities are the great Irish centres
in New York :
"But there is ono fact concerning the personnel of
the black man and woman which is not generally
know n or believed, but which is. nevertheless, a truth
that practical experience will teach Htiy disinterested
observer of the matter —the fact that the blacks, as a
class, are, in their personal habits, more tidy and clean
than the lower or corresponding elass of whites. Ot
course, negroes in the Five Points are dirty —very
dirty—but so are the whites in the same locality, and
to a greater degree. In certain portions of the Fifth
and Eighth wards, in Thomson street and Laurens
street, and in other sections of the eitv, great filth ac
companies great poverty, among the blacks as among
all other human beings; but taken as a whole, our
statement keeps good. In Amity Lane, for instance,
in the rear bouses where the negroes live, though
everything is clean; while many houses in Sullivan
street would do no discredit to the neatest house-wife.
Even in the vilest localities, it is found that the great
est filth abounds where the low blacks miscegenate
and live with the yet lower whites; as in certain por
tions of Laurens street, and numerous other neigh
borhoods. This may not he a very flattering fact—nut
it is a fact nevertheless—and this statement may pos
sibly serve to dissipate a common though vulgar pre
judice. As regards the popular notion of the odor of
the negro, it may he positively stated that lie. iu this
respect, is like the white—a free negro being tree
from it, and a foul one cursed by it."
Then, in the following extract, the
World claims that the negroes are less
addicted to crime than the white people
of the localities in which they live:
"As a race, ttie negroes of New York, considered
from a polieo point of view, are a better elass of citi
zens than the lower grades ot whites. As just re
marked, a negro or negress is brought before the
courts occasionally for theft; occasionally a block
man is arraigned for outrag", and very rare!;, for
drunkenness or murder. But as a class, the negroes
give the police comparatively little trouble. This is
tie- almost universal testimony of patrolmen. s.*r
geauts. captains and superintendents; and we pub -h
it as at lea-,t an approximation to the truth. The
reason of this may be that the negro is naturally a
weak and inoffensive being, or that the blacks have,
as yet, had opened tpthem comparatively few avenues
of crime; or the cause may he. as the admirers of the
negro claim, that he is by nature more pure and un
wordly than the white (which latter idea is- doubtful,"
■ exceedingly.") A few "colored" criminals have,
however, rendered themselves notorious to the po
Irishmen who have been voting the
democratic ticket must feel highly flat
tered by such comments from theleudiug
organ of democracy.

BrßuThe Juniata papers just now are in
a ferment about a law passed at the last
session regulating advertising, &e. The

two democratic and their ally the John

give the printing to the three papers hav
ing the largest circulation—hence the
hubbub. The population of that county
is about the same as ours, ;md two papers
would be enough in all conscience. Asa
