This honored citizen of Pennsylvania
died at the residence of his son-in-law, at
Carlisle, on Saturday last, at the advanc

monwealth, over whom ho honestly and
fearlessly exercised Executive functions
during an important era in her history.

A BAD INVESTMENT
Fifty thousand dollars is what the little
experiment of Tuesday a week cost Asa
Packer. The money was put into the care
of trustees, and a good part of it went into
the hands of impecunious newspapers, for
the printing of German, English and
Welsh documents, illuminated posters,
and stirring hand bills on the danger of
Pennsylvania being Africanized and Ce
lestialized. Asa, from the time he invest
ed his earnings in the wild lands of the
Lehigh valley, never made a more indis
Well may the Republicans of Philadel
phia be proud of the result in the city.
To give 4000 majority over all—whisky
rings, brewer's unions, gin leagues, and
similar democratic institutions—is indeed
glorious. And the democracy made a
great mistake when they hauled down
their city ticket because it was made up
principally of blacklegs, keepers of low
groggeries, bummers and ex-criminals,
and substituted a set of " respectable"
candidates, for by so doing they entirely
ignored the principle element of which
their party is made up.
The Albany (New York) Journal is
more than satisfied with the result in
Pennsylvania. It says:
"Pennsylvania has been true to herself,
over obstacles apparently the most insur
mountable. The enemy was sanguine to
the point of confidence, but not of neglect.
They fought stubbornly and unscrupu
lously. They challenged success by their
desperate earnestness. They struggled
as never before. Money saved from the
tax gatherers was scattered like chaff.
Their candidate for Governor was nomi
nated avowedly because he would prove
an unscrupulous corruptionist. His
coffers, not his brains, were in demand.
His money, not himself, was running.
But honesty has triumphed over fraud,
and the Keystone remains firm. All
honor to the noble workers of Pennsylva
FOOD F6R DEMOCRATIC REFLECTION.
In alluding to the recent glorious vic
tory in Pennsylvania over the "Demo
cratic" party, Forney's Press appropri
ately and truly says that Packer started
with the prestige of great wealth and per
sonal inoffensiveness. lie was placard
ed as the "Pride of the Valley," and
his invincibility was not only a matter
of general pride among Democrats, but
served to build up an assurance of victory
which was gratifying to the party and
amusing to the opposition. With all this,
in the very sections where he was best
known, where his best connections were
largest, where his political principles or
prejudices were best understood, where,
according to every speculation, he should
have shown his greatest strength, there
the Republican gains are most significant.
Inquiry into this phase of the election
elicits one or two truths of more than or
dinary moment. And the first is the im
possibility of public or private individuals
separating themselves from their war
records. The people are just as willing
now as they were in 1.861 to regard the
rebellion as a stupendous crime against
the country and themselves, and those
who participated in it, or gave it aid and
sympathy, as unworthy of public confi
dence. The stain of assisting by act or
thought to crush liberty, sunder the union
of the States and build up an aristocratic
government, whose " corner-stone should
be human slavery," cannot be wiped out
in this generation.
However much time may soften the as
perities of the war, the loyal people of
America can never be brought to acknowl
edge that men who rolled in affluence,
and whose influence might have been
powerful to save, yet who withheld both,
or exerted them for the enemy, are as
worthy of public confidence as those who
sacrificed comfort, time, wealth and influ
ence, and endangered life, in order to save
our institutions. They have told Asa
Packer so with an emphasis which must
force the unpleasant truth home upon
him. His neighbors have told him so—
even those whom he and his party sup
posed would be most forgiving.
POLITICAL TEMPERANCE MEN
The political temperance men of Phila
delphia placed a full county ticket in the
field, for the purpose of defeating the Re
publicans. The following is the result of
the vote cast :
Furguson, for Recorder... 209
Claghorn, for Prothonotory 869

isr The llarrisburg Telegraph did yeo

The Trenton Sentinel, edited by Charles
W. Jay, Esq., is very hard on the "Dimmy
crate." There is more truth than poetry
in what he says in his sharp way. We
give a few samples :
"In New York city there is an Associ
ation of " respectable Democrats called
the "Manhattan Club. ,, Manton Mar
ble, August Belmont, Samuel J. Tilden,
Governor Hoffman, and other dignitaries
of the party are members of this club.
And yet their room is but a disguised
gambling den. A short time since tme of
the members sued a brother for the sum
of fourteen hundred dollars which he won

is no use of talking. A Democrat; `be he
a loafer or a man of means, must natural

his kind. You have but to look around
you to see this truth." * * * *
" The Fourth Ward of New York city,
composed of ruffians, murderers and
drunkards, showed the following result at
the last election :
"Now look at it, Christian Copperhead
and traitor. It is always so. Wherever
vice and vagabondism most abounds, your
Democratic vote preponderates ten to one.
And now for the Sixth Ward, whick is
the rival of the Fourth in crime and ruf
fianism. The following is the record of
her last election :
"Thieves, murderers, burglars, ruffians,
drunkards, are instinctively Democrats.
And yet you vote with the scum of hu
manity—with the villains who send brutal
prize-fighters and gamblers to Congress—
and you are the political heathen of the
totally depraved of mankind. You can
vote with these villains without compunc
tion, but the man with a dark skin must
not come near the ballot-box. Don't you
feel that you are a mean and contempti
" But New York is not an isolated city
in her political infamy. Take any ulcer
ous sore in the body politic and it is almost
solidly Democratic. Even in this quiet
city of ours the ignorant and ruffianly
localities are heavily Democratic. The
man who cannot write his own name is
invariably a " Democrat." The brute
who beats his wife is always of the same
party. The keeper of a low rum-hole is
most certainly a "Dimikrat." The First
Ward in this city contains the wealth, the
intellect and the refinement of the city.
It is heavily Republican. The Fourth,
Sixth and Seventh Wards reeks with ig
norance and brutality. Of course they
are intensely Democratic. The Fourth
Ward of Philadelphia is the plague spot
of that city. Her principal Alderman is
a brute of a murderer. Thieves and pros
titutes make up the bulk of its population.
Its vote is four thousand Democratic to
three hundred Republican. And so the
country over. There is no community
where the shiftless, shirt-tail class are not
" Dimikrats." nywhere in town or
country, if every brute or loafer is not a
" Democrat " it is a strange departure
from the rule. Violators of the moral or
statute law are Democrats, ninety oitt of
every hundred of them." Jcs so !
THE REPUBLICANS OF CARBON.
Looking over the official returns of Car
bon county, the real and only home of
Asa Packer, we have satisfied ourselves
that in no part of the State was the cam
paign conducted with more vigor and
devotion to principle and gratifying suc
cess, on the part of our political friends,
than in that county. Notwithstanding
the millions of money at the disposal of
Mr. Packer, and the vigor with which
those employed along the line of his Rail
roads were almost driven to the polls and
compelled to vote for him—many against
their judgment and inclination—his ma
jority in the County was only 685, being
55 more than they gave for County
Auditor, and 69 more than that of Per
shing over Williams. In Mauch Chunk
Borough the vote stood, Packer 308, and
Geary 861, being a majority of 53—a Re
publican gain since Packer was beaten for
Borough Councilman by Mr. Lewis Beck
hart a few years ago, of 18. In Mauch
Chunk township—Summit Hill district—
Packer was beaten 119, being a Republi
can gain of 103.
For this glorious result in Carbon coun
ty, under so many serious difficulties,
much credit is due to our worthy succes
sors of the Mauch Chunk Gazette; to Dr.
D. K. Shoemaker, Gen. Lilly, Gen. Al
bright, Capt. Shields, Serg't Wehr, B. F.
Walters, J. McMurtrie, N. D. Fowler,
T. S. Beck, and many others who entered
the fight boldly and with a determination
to carry the old flag through in triumph.
Such Republicans, in such localities, who
fight against such odds, are worth talking
about, and deserve to be gratefully remem
All over the State the Republicans have
taken this year to settle sundry quarrel s
and adjust old scores ; and this they ap
pear to have done and retained the con
trol at the same time. As an "off year,"
the result in every light is extremely
gratifying, especially in the light of an in
dorsement of the administration of Gen.
Grant. Could that question have been
submitted separately to the people of
Pennsylvania, embarrassed by no local
issues or other complications, the majori
ty would have been not leas than that by
which Gen. Grant carried the State last
fall. Indeed, we say with confidence,
that it was the favor with which Gen.
Grant's administration—more especially
its financial management—is regarded by
the people of Pennsylvania, that carried
the State on Tuesday, and in this light is
the result chiefly significant.
or'The Holmesburg Gazelle comes to
us this week enlarged and otherwise im
proved. Success to it.
The heaviest weights we carried in the
campaign just ended were the abominable
extravagances and corruptions of the two
last Legislatures, and that wretched sys
tem of keeping the public moneys which
makes opportunity for individuals to cor
rupt the public servant with the public
money, and for themselves to grow rich
and great at the expense of the tax-payers
of the Commonwealth. We have stag
gered through to victory under these bur
dens. They will not be carried long. We
say to the members of the General As
.sembly just elected, reform these abuses,
and provide safeguards for the treasury.
If the public money cau be made to earn
anything, let it be for the Commonwealth.
At least, put it out of the power of indi
viduals and combinations to corrupt Leg
islatures, the servants of the people, with
the people's own money. Your duty is
plain, and neglect or failure will be with
out excuse. We hope, we trust, that it
will be performed. Let not the contempt
ible subterfuge, that the office of State
Treasurer is at the disposal of the Repub
lican party, stay the hand of reform. Do
your duty, and you will deserve a con
tinuance of the public confidence which
you now have. Fail, and you will be
crushed under the avalanche of popular
The result of the recent election in the
Old Keystone demonstrates more clearly
than ever, that the great Republican party
is a pure, indestructible organization,
whose mission is progress and reform—a
party (the only one that ever existed) that
can and will reform abuses in its own ranks.
Let us add to its strength and glory by
keeping its record unsullied. Pennsyl
vania is no longer a doubtful State. The
Republican party needs nothing to per
petuate its power, but honest manage
ment and good men in office.
The election in Omo resulted in a ma
jority for Hayes, the Republican candi

THINGS IN PHILADELPHIA.
The Result, and the Cause— The Contested Elec
tion Case—Decision of ihe Court-- Candidates
for ,Speaker— Will of the late Dr. Rush—
Laura Keene's Theatre.
PHILADELPHIA, Oct 20, 1869.
DEAR ADE : The contest is over and a
great victory has been won, as was illustra
ted by FATHER ADE last, week, but to Phil
adelphia belongs the credit, for without our
very handsome figures the State would, have
been nowhere. Now that the excitement
has been brought to a close, I trust I shall be
able to give you a weekly budget of things
in the city of Brotherly Love.
Immense sums of money have changed
hands since Tuesday of last week. Up to
Tuesday at twelve o'clock the cops were con
fident of success, and all bets offered were
eagerly gobbled up. One prominentdown town
politician offered to bet from one hundred
to one thousand dollars that the city would
give a Democratic majority without counting
the vote of the celebrated Fourth Ward.
Unfortunately for me, I have been connected
with the press too long to have such a vast
BUM of money, otherwise "Warwick" would
have covered at once.
It is amusing to hear the Democracy apolo
gize for their defeat. The obnoxious Regis
try Law—Mayor Fox and his model police
force—the changing of the Democratic ticket
upon the eve of election—everybody and
everything is chargeable as to the cause of
The great contested election case, whioh
has occupied the attention of our men of law
for the past twelve months, has at last been
brought to a close, and the result is that the
court decrees that at the general election
held in the city of Philadelphia on the
second Tuesday of October, 1868, the follow
ing named parties were duly and legally
Mayor—D. M. Fox, D., by 68 majority.
District Attorney—Chas. Gibbons, R., by 68
Receiver of Taxes---Richard Peitz. R., by
over 1,400 majority.
City Controller-8. P. Hancock, R., by over
City Solicitor—Thomas J. Worrell, 11., by
over 800 majority.
• Prothonotary-Richard Donegan, R. by over
City Commissioner—Alex. McCaen, IL, by
over 800 majority.
So the agony is over, and the court decides
that of all the Copper-Democracy returned as
elected last fall, Mr. Fox is the only one en
titled to the position, and he by the ' skin of
Mr. Sheppard at the conclusion of the de
cision, though his attopney, Mr. Sellers,
gave notice that his case would be carried to
the Supreme Court, and on Tuesday last, all
the other ousted aspirants followed in the
wake of the late District Attorney.
Mr. Sheppard, just after the decision had
been given, resigned his position, and Mr.
Gibbons was appointed by Judge Ludlow, as
District Attorney pro-tem.
For Speaker of the next House of Repre
sentatives I hear of several candidates. From
our city, it is understood that Mr. Adair, of
the Twelfth District, and Mr. Miller, of the
West Philadelphia District, are both aspir-
ants. Among the knowing ones, General
Selfridge, of Northampton, is most prominent
for the Chief Clerkship.
You will remember, in the early portion of
this correspondence, I mentioned the decease
of Dr. Rush, and his munificent gift of about
one million one hundred thousand dollars to
the Philadelphia Library Company, with the
understanding that l from the funds a suitable
building should be erected at Broad and Car
penter streets, and that the Company should
move their quarters from their present loca
tion to the new quarters provided. At an
election held on Tuesday last the Library
Company decided to accept the provisions of
the will, though singular to tell, by a very
City Solicitor Worrell has appointed Dr.
John H. Seltzer, formerly of Berks, as one of
his assistants. It is needless to say that this
appointment gives general satisfaction, as the
Doctor has hosts of warm friends and is in
every way a jolly good fellow.
In the amusement world, the latest is the
opening of Laura Keene's Chestnut Street
Theatre, mention of which I should have
made before. The Chestnut, under bliss
Keene's management, and with the elegant
stock company she has gathered around her,
is decidedly the very best place of amuse
ment we can boast of. and to Lancasterians
visiting our city, it is just the place to go to
spend a pleasant evening. Booth is drawing
immense houses at the Walnut, whilst a new
comedy is the rage at the Arch. With the great
number of strangers in town, all the places
of amusement are doing exceedingly well.
And so we go. Yours WARWICK.
