AN ADDRESS TO THE DEMOCRATIC AND CON

NEW YORK, October 14. —At a meeting
of the Democratic national committee
to-day the following address was
To the Democratic, and conservative voters
of the country : The election of Presi
dent and Vice President is now before
you. State and local dissensions are
eliminated from the issues of the day.
The magnitude of a victory or a defeat
can only be estimated by the force and
means employed in securing it. By
fraud and corruption the people of the
country were defeated in their purpose
in 1870 and the rightfully elected Pres
ident was kept from office. With the
combined capital of the Kepublican
party, aided by repeated assessments
upon an army of office-holders, with
the power of the Federal government
represented by the United States mar
shals at the polls, with intimidation,
fraud and a resort to every corrupt
appliance known to Kepublican meth
ods concentrated in the two 3tates our
adversaries have succeeded in procuring
the probable return of their local can
didates. Can it be possible that in
every State throughout this broud land
the same methods can be brought to
bear that were used by the Kepublican i
managers in Indiana and Ohio? Can '
the great States of New York, New j
Jersey, Connecticut, California, Colo- j
rado, Nevada and New Hampshire, be
bought, intimidated and defrauded ? .
F.ven without the vote of Indiana, |
which I believe will be redeemed in
November, with New York and New I
Jersey, and these States are conceded [
to us, including Maine, the election of
our candidate is assured. The Kepub
lican party have put in nomination for
President and Vice President, two men
who by the admission of their own
party and press are unworthy of your
confidence and suffrages, it is impos
sible that fifty millions of intelligent
and patriotic people will consent to
place themselves upon the humiliating
level thus prepared for them by the
Fellow citizens, the first day's repulse
at Gettysburg ended on the third, with
Hancock in the front, in a glorious vic
tory. That victory secured us our
Union. The question is not now the
preservation of the Union, but of Con
stitutional Government. Hancock is
now, as then, in the front. The re
pulse is now, as then, the omen of a
victory which is to secure the coming
generations with inestimable blessings
of civil liberty.

AN ADDRESS FROM TIIE STATE COMMITTEE, j
HEADQUARTERS OF THE STATE DEMO
CRATIC COMMITTEE, PIIIUADEM-HIA, Octo
ber 14, 1 8SO.— To the Democracy of J'enn
sylvania: Indiana votes Kepublican by
a small majority. Ohio holds her posi
tion as a Kepublican State. The latter
| was expected ; the former is a disaster
to our cause as Maine was to that of
our opponents. The success in Indiana
is the result of means alike discredita
ble to those employing them and de
structive to honest elections. The
corrupt use of enormous sums of money
and of organized fraud protected by
federal power, against a weak candi
date for governor has given Indiana
temporarily to our foe. But Indiana
will be redeemed, for Hancock is
stronger than the local candidate
everywhere. Gut of this nettle, danger,
we will pluck the flower, safety. We
are done with side issues and weak can
didates, for November gives a broader
field, and Hancock is at the front.
Arouse the people everywhere; push
the column boldly ; give new force and
increased vigor to the newspaper and
speaking canvass in every locality; em
bolden the timid : encourage the hesi
tating; preach and teach the truth
with renewed energy ; redouble your
efforts among the masses ; make them
feel that this battle is for their rights,
and is against the power of money,
organized fraud, and a strong govern
ment. Appeal to their personal inde
pendence against the domination of
employers t to personal right against
corporate power; to State pride and
love of country; against centralized
government and federal corruption;
to the rule ot the people against an
army of officeholders. We light for
the State, for electors, congressmen
and the Legislature. Let it be with
the earnest force of men who are de
termined to coerce victory and wo can
carry Pennsylvania for our gullant son.
lie saved the State and the Republic at
Gettysburg. Let us rally with united
force and desperate energy to repay to
him the debt of gratitude the people
owe him ami to restore to the whole
country unity, prosperity and peace.
A. 11. I>ii.i., Chairman.
Gov. Cnrtin for Congress.
From the Klk Democrat.
In our last issue we made a mere
mention of the nomination, on Wed
nesday of last week, of Gov. Curtin for
Congress in this district, and promised
more extended remarks this week.
We had hoped ere this to receive a copy
of the proceedings of the conference,
but in this wo have been disappointed ;
consequently we have been compelled
to pick up what we could, here and
there, bearing upon the subject.
The conference met on Tuesday, in
Lock Haven. The candidates were A.
G. Curtin, of Centre; J. K. P. Hall, of
Klk, and Andrew Reed, of Milllin. Bal
loting was soon commenced, which con
tinued throughout the day and into the
night, Curtin receiving the vote of Cen
tre, Clearfield ard Clinton, 9 ; Reed that
of Milllin and Cnion, 0; Hall that of Klk,
3, On Wednesday morning, after sev
eral more ineffectual ballots, the name
of Mr. Hall was withdrawn at his re
quest, when Messrs. Luhr and Messen
ger voted with the conferees of Centre,
Clearfield and Clinton for Curtin, while
Mr. Kaul voted with the conferees of
Milllin and Union for Reed, the vote
standing—Curtin 11, Reed 7. On mo
tion, the nomination of Curtin was
made unanimous. Messrs. Curtin, Reed
and Hall then appeared before the
conference and made speeches, the
former accepting the nomination and
giving his reasons for desiring it, and
the two latter pledging the nominee j
their hearty support.
Two yenrs ago Gov. Curtin, our
readers will remember, was the Demo
cratic nominee, and, owing to a combi- |
nation of circumstances, chief of which
was the fusion of the Republicans and
Greenbackers upon Mr. \ooum, he was,
to the surprise of everybody, defeated
by a majority of 75 in a total vote of'
116,835. This year such a fusion will
not be made, and even if it were, Gov.
Curtin would not be defeated, as the j
Greenbackers this year will do well if ,
they poll 1,000 votes in the district,
whereas in 1878 their joll reached
3,620, four fifths of which, we may safely
say, was drawn from the Democratic
party, as the majority for Tilden in 1876
was -1,173, while that of Dill over Hoyt
and Mason in 1878 was hut 1,114, and
that, too, in the face of the fact that
Dill ran ahead of the ticket in the dis
trict. In the 1878 contest the majority
of Dill over Hoyt and Mason in Centre
county (Gov. Curtin's home) was 325;
while Curtin's majority was hut 35.
This disastrous result was largely trace- !
able to the fact tlirat the Bellefonte
Watchman, the Democratic organ of Cen
tre county, declined to support the War
Governor because its editor questioned
his Democracy. This year it is cordial
in his support, as the appended extract, i
clipped trom the issue of the H'a/>Au/n j
of the Ist, abundantly testifies:
"In the contest now upon us the Watch
rnnn will give a cordial and earnest sup
port to Gov. Curtin for the reasons that
the objections it had to hi* election two
years ago have been removed, lie has se
cured the party nomination fairly and
honorably ; he has cast aside the foolish
and suicidal idea of standing outside of
party organizations and proclaiming him
self a'Liberal Republican he has become
a member of the Democratic club of this
place, and has openly And distinctly in
every speech he has made during the pres
ent campaign, announced himself a Demo
crat—a believer in Democratic principles,
an advocate of Democratic doctrines, and
a supporter of Democratic men and Dem
ocratic measures. He has proclaimed, just
a the Watchman did two years ago, that
there i no hailing place between right and
wrong—that to be anything in politic* a
representative must belong to one or the
I other of the groat party organizations, and
that for himself, believing the Democracy
to bo rigl.t, he has cast his lot with it.
"Under the circumstance* there is but
one thing for us, as well as for nil other
Democrats of the district, to do, and that is
to give bitn the same hearty and undivided
support that would have been given to any
other nominee had the choice of the con
ference fallen to some other aspirant.
"In the knowledge of the wants and
needs of the different interest* of our dis
trict and Htate; in the influence he will
wield in taking care of thone interests,
and in the qualifications to perform the
general duties pertaining to the office of
representative in Congress, Gov. Curtin
will be so far superior to any candidate the
Radical party can put up against him, that
there will bo no comparison between the
two and no room for any question a* to
how the intelligent voters of the district
should cast their ballot#.-"
The majority in the district this year
for Hancock will not fall below 4,500,
and may reach S,(NX). As we can see no
good reason why any man who votes
for Hancock can consistently refuse to
vote for Curtin, we predict the election
of the great War Governor by a majority
larger than that ever received by any
man for the same office, excepting only
the majority of 5,036 for Mackey over
Lincoln in 1876, when there was virtu
ally no contest, Mackey's majority in
Klk alone being 1,308.
An Able and Desirable Representative.
From Uas Democrat and Sei.tlnrl,
Hon. A. G. Curtin, who has received
the nomination for Congress in this dis
trict, is worthy of the suffrages of the
united Democracy, and will reoeive
them without a doubt. Mr. Curtin it
now thoroughly allied with the Demo
cratic party, is imbued with Democratic
principles, and with his well-known
ability will serve his oonslituentf with a
faithfulness that will advance their best
interests as never before. l'ennaylva
nla's interests in the National Congress
will receive his unqualified support, his
voice will give no uncertain sound, and
his position there will exert an influ
ence that will be felt. Few districts in
the State will have so able and so de
sirable a representative. His triumph
ant election will follow the nomination,
and every true Democrat will use his
influence and best efforts to muke the
majority as largo as possible.

NEW YORK, October 15—General
Hancock lias written a letter to ex-Gov
ernor Randolph, of New Jersey, in re
gard to the interview published in the
Patterson Guardian :
GOVERNOR'S ISLAND, N. Y., Oct. 12,1880
—My Jtear Governor: 1 have received
your favor of the llfh inst. In my
letter of acceptance I expressed my
full sympathy with our American indus
tries. 1 thought 1 spoke plainly enough
to satisfy our Jersey friends regarding
my tariff views. I am too Round an
American to advocate auy departure
from the general features of a policy
that has been largely instrumental in
building up our industries and keeping
Americans from the competition of the
under paid labor of Kurope. If we in
tend to remain honest and pay the pub
lic debt, as good people of all parties
do, and if we mean to administer the
functions of the government then we
must raise revenue in some way or
other. With a reunited and harmon
ious country we shall certainly in time
pay off the public debt, hut the neces
sity of raising money for the adminis
tration of the government will continue
as long as human nature last*. All
parties agree that the best way to raise
revenue is largely by the tariff. So
far as we are concerned, therefore, all
talk about "free trade" is folly. But
the tariff question will probably he
treated with justice to all our interests
and people by some such bill as Eaton's.
I believe that A commission of intelli
gent exjverts representing l*>th the gov
ernment and the American industries
will suggest the taritr measures that will
relieve us of any crudities and inconsis
tencies existing in our present laws and
confirm to us the system which will be
judicious, just, harmonious and incident
ally protective as well as stable in its
effect. I am, very truly yours,

HARRISBURO, October 16, 18S0.— Col. 1
Henry McCormick —DEAIYSIR: Knowing;
you to be largely interested in the iron !
business, and at the same time to favor
the election of General Hancock to the
Presidency, I infer that you do not ap
prehend that any bad effects upon the !
business interests of the country will j
result from t lie success of the Democrat- j
ic party. If so would you be kind i
enough to state your reasons for your |
belief? By so doing you would oblige, i
IS. F. MEYERS.
HARRISIII Rci. October 'B, 1880.— R. F.
Meyer*, Kty. — DEAR SIR : Yours of 16th
inst. is received. You are right in your
inference that 1 do not think business
interests will fie in any way imp<villed
by the election of General Hancock.
The efforts to create a panic in business
circles are mainly based upon alleged
danger to industrial interests depend
ent more or less upon the tariff.
Now if the presdenlial election has
any bearing at all upon the question, I ■
infinitely prefer Hancock, born and
bred in the valley of the Schuylkill
amid mines and furnaces—in a com
munity where all parlies are a unit on
the tariff question—and whose only
published utterance* on the subject
should be entirely satisfactory to the
I'ennsylvanians, to Garfield—a member
of that famous free trade club, "The
Cobden whose tariff record was so
odious to Pennsylvania republican
members of Congress that they bolted
his nomination in caucus for speaker
of the House and who i* supported as
a champion of revenue reform by the
great free trade orgsns of New York
and Chicago. But we are referred to
parly plattorms—they are only traps
"set to catch gudgeons;" they are only
framed to be misunderstood. When
has the dominant party regarded them
in legislation? For example 1 may
here refer to a highly polished plank
that has served in more than one Re
publican national platform—l mean
that of "Civil Hervice Reform," so much
preached and so little practised by the
party. But the real power of regulat
ing the tariff devolves upon Congress.
The present Congress is Democratic in
both branches and why has not the
threatened ruin already paralyzed our
industries? If the country can survive
and thrive undera Democratic Congress
for two years why not longer? A presi
dential veto has no power to prevent
the passage of any measure through
Congress and we have a right to suppose
thst it the Democratic pßrty as such
united upon any modification of the
tariff they would have adopted .one.
But the fact is it is generally conceded
—except for campaign purposes—that
the tariff is no longer a party question
and it is almost sure during the present
Congress to be submitted to the hands
of a commission of experts for the
preparation of a measure that will be
juat to all interests. This will be done
by common content of men of all par-
ties—after election. For the above rea
sons I have no fear that Democratic
success in November need disturb the
equanimity of the most ardent protec
tionist. Again, the Republican party
pretend to claim credit for the present
general prosperity of the couniry. Is
not the legislative branch of the gov
ernment Democratic ? .Surely it is more
powerful for good or ill to the public
credit and welfare than the executive
department, and it is in a great measure
responsible for improved credit and en
The Republican administration de
serves no credit for resumption of spe
cie payments. It was merely done in
obedience to a law passed years before
and against the protest of the most
powerful wing of the party. A happy
conjunction of accidents (over which
parly would scarcely claim control) ren
dered resumption a success and has
thus far enabled us fo continue them.
Foreign war wasting the grain fields of
Kurope, our bountiful crops and itn
provements in transportation have
brought gold here in abundance and
made it ea*y for us to pay in specie.
Knowing well the conservative charac
ter and tendencies of General Hancock
I feel confident that the interests of
labor, capital and the whole re United
States would he subserved by his elec
tion to the presidency.
RLUODSIIKI) IN DELAWARE.
A OA.NO OF NT ROES AT MED WITH RAZORS
AND RIFLES ASSAULT A DEMOCRATIC
PROCESSION IN WILMINGTON.
On last Saturday night an unprovok
ed and dastardly attack was made upon
a Democratic parade in the city of Wil
mington, Delaware, by a gang of several
hundred negroe*, which resulted in a
serious riot in which fire arms and razors
were freely and effectively used. The
attack WAS deliberately plotted, as is
shown by the threats of the negroes
early in the evening and by the fact
that nearly all of the Hssaulting party
were armed with pistols and guns and
were massed At one of the most dimly
lighted points along the route of the
parade. The procession was very large,
every Democratic club in the citv with
one exception being in line. It had
nearly completed its route and was
marching in splendid form past Na
tional 11 <*II, the headquarters of the
lliggins Colored Republican Club at
Ninth and Walnut streets, when a
brickbat from one of the windows of
the club building came crashing through
a transparency carried by the " Blue
Hen's Chickens." This was aliout 11
o'clock. At first there was a disposition
to resent the insult, but the parade
moved on until the Young Men's Dem
ocratic Club arrived opj>o*ite the llig
gins headquarters, when the assault was
renewed. The lieutenant-colonel of the
club was struck by A stone and knocked
off his horse. Several men at the head
of the club came running hack, and
immediately the report of a pistol shot
came from the crowd of negtoe*. This
was the signal for a general discharge
of fire arms from the windows, doorway
and roof of the Higgins headquarters.
The Democrat* being unarmed were
compiled to retreat, but soon a squad
of the Young Men'* Ilemocratic ('luh,
reinforced by other menitters of the
parade, returned, and planting the bat
tered transparency of the " Blue lien'#
Chickens" in front of the Higgins head
quarter# made a furious assault or. the
building. The negroes made A deter
mined resistance, but were finally driven
from the building, and retreated to
Ninth and Fiench streets, followed by
A shower of stones and brickbats. Na

doors and furniture were smashed, ami
