MEETING AT LERAYSVILLE
We have a letter from the Chairman of the
Republican State Executive Committee, an
nouncing the Hon. HANNIBAL HAMUV, of
Maine, will speak at Montrose, on Saturday
11th inst., and at Jsraysvilh rn Monday af
tc- noon ihc 13 th met. There will be no failure
in his presence unless some unforeseen contin
gency should occur. No man in the Union
commands a greater degree of our respect and
admiration than Gov. HAMLIN. lie has al
ways been a Democrat, but when the Cincin
nati Convention made its pro-slavery platform,
and .TAMP.S BUCHANAN with indecent haste
jumped upon it, he rose in his seat in the Sen
ate, and in plain and manly language declared
that he could not support such measures nor
such a man.
Nominated as the Republican candidate for
Governor of Maine, every effort was made by
the Slavery propagandas to effect his defeat.
Of thi* result tliry were sanguine, but the peo
ple of Maine, by 25,000 majority, attested
their confidence in his integrity and their de
votion to the principles of Freedom. Coining
with this proud endorsement of the Freemen
of Maine, his presence with us, will be a grati
fication which the people of Eastern Bradford
will unquestionably enjoy.
6aT Amor.gst the many plan? employed to
defeat I/ATORTF:, it is expected to diTert votes
in the Western part of the Coant?, upoo local
questions. We appeal to the Republicans of
Western Bradford not to lie itsed by the un
scrupulous men who make this boost. You
cannot ( fleet your interests by any such coarse,
while every vote lost for LACORTK at the State
election, is equivalent to a vote cast ngniuft
FRPMONT in November. The attempt will be
made to excite your local prejudices. Remem

Kallv ! Freemen to the Polls!
This is the lust occasion we shall have to
urge upon tliw Freemen of Bradford County
the importance of the present contest, and the
necssity for united and vigorous action. On
Tuesday next, is to be decided questions of
great moment to the prosperity and perpetuity
of our Country. It is every man's duty to
BE AT THE POLLS !
Rain or shine, suow or sleet. We say again,
BE AT THE POM-S ! and be there before they
are ojened. When the polls are opened, vote
yourself, and see that every Republican in the
township is there. Beat the Polls all day,
and if there is a voter absent, start out after
him. Do everything that is honorable, and
leave no exertion undone to
GET OUT THE VOTERS !
It is needless to say, that the Buchaniers
wiil do so. They have been supplied with mo
ney from Custom Houses, and interested capi
talists, to get out every voter, and they will
leave no efforts untried to poll all their votes.
The Freemen of Bradford must give
ONE DAY TO THEIR COUNTRY !
or the efforts of the organized pro-slavery dis
unionists will prove successful. If the free la
boring men of the country, will be vigiluntand
industrious, all will be well.
DONT N EGLECT THE STATE TICKET!
Upon the State Ticket depends our success in
November. See that every man votes for the
State Ticket—-COCHRAN, PIIELPS, and
LAPORTE. Their election decides the hat

efforts of the slave-propngaudista will be di

Your country calls upon you to devote one
day to her interests. As this election is but
a preliminary skirmish to decide the Presiden

Freemen of Bradford ! Are yon anxious to
attest your detestation of the Administration
FRANKLIN PIKRCF. —your unqualified disappro
bation of its measures and policy ? Are you
anxious to rebuke the monstrous infraction of
National faith committed in the Repeal of the
Missouri Compromise ? Are you anxious to

labor, not own it—that Free Society is not a

and desire for your children an opportunity to
emigrate to the West without encountering
the degrading presence of negro bondage
RALLY TO THE POLLS !
An attempt is now making by means of the
name of Democracy to subvert oar free insti

fathers—to put new and dangerous construc
tions upon the Constitution—by means of
which Slavery may lie introduced upon every
foot of the soil of this Republic. The slave
power usurps and controls every branch of the
government, and pervades and domineers over
every department, proscribing and outlawing
those who bold to the opinions of Jefferson
and the fathers of the Republic. Mob law
and violence prevent the free expression of
sentiments in one portion of the country, with
the approbation of the slave-driving adjuncts

THE UNION STATE TICKET.
The most deeperute efforts are being made
bj the Bachauicrs to defeat the Union State
Ticket, or some portion of it. Tbcy sec the
handwriting on the wall—they feci they arc
doomed to defeat on Tuesday next, and their
overthrow theu extinguishes the last lingering
hope of BUCHANAN'S election. To effect a
division of the Fillmore men, they are resort
ing to the most disgraceful expedients. The
Pennsyli-avian tR charging that all the Union
State Ticket is in favor of FRKMONT, and ap
pealing to the FILLMORE men not to support it.
The fire is particularly directed at LAFORTK.
Nominated as a Republican, his position upon
the Presidency is supposed to be more assaila
ble than either of the others.
It is but a few days since, that one of the
Buchanier leaders in this place was at Athens
endeavoring to procure a statement or affida
vit from FILLMORE men there, to the effect that
LAPORTE was making speeches for FREMONT,
and denouncing FILLMORE. In this, he failed,
as the FILLMORE men declined certifying to a
falsehood. Not succeeding in this, the follow
ing statement has been signed by a few of the
faithful, aud forwarded to Philadelphia, where
it appears in tbo advertising columns of the
We, the undersigned, eitiiens of Bradford county, and
for a loiifc time resident* therein, and personally acquain
ted with Bartholomew Laporte, a candidate for the office
of Surveyor General 011 the State ticket of the Repubii
c.n party of Pennsylvania, declare freely and unreserv
edly, that he occupie* the same position as David Wil
mot upon the slavery question, and generally upon all
political questions. His speeches before the people of
our region, leave no doubt whatever as to his being deep
ly imbued with Abolitionism ; in short, he is a bigot up
on these subjects of the most ultra description. He is.
and has been ever since the nomination, an open and zea
lous supporter of John (J. Fremont for the Presidency,
and an opponent of Millard Fillmore and copies closely
tho example and efforts of Wilinot in the present canvass.

There is a commandment that " thou shalt
not bear false witness against thy neighbor,"
which is worthy of the consideration of those
signing this certificate. Living in the neigh
borhood of Mr. LAPOKTE, there is no excuse
for the falsehoods and misrepresentations this
precious document contains.
They knew the statements made are false in
every essential particular. They know that
LAPORTF. is not an Abolitionist, in any sense
of the term ; they do not know that he has
made any speeches during the present can Tass,
nor that he has assailed Mr. FILLMORE, as is
intended to be inferred from their certificate.
As the object is to convey to the FILLMORE
men below the impression that Mr. LAPORTF.
is zealously opposing FILLMORE, and that he is
an " abolition bigot " of the " most ultra des
cription," we pronounce it a disreputable at
tempt to injure a neighlwr, by means ef false
hood and deception. We are not surprised at
some of the names which appear, because the
owners would stoop to anything to carry their
political ends, and to gratify their malevolence
—but there are names appended which aston
ish us. We believe they have been signed
thoughtlessly, and without a knowledge of the
base use to which they were to be put.
Daring the present canvass, we have
been honored with the presence of several dis
tinguished geutleraen, preaching Buchananism.
Hitherto they have been honorable and cour
teous gentlemen, who sought by argument to
bring our voters to their way of thinking and
acting. Whatever success they may have had,
we certainly have no disposition to find fault,
because their conduct was gentlemanly and
courteous. All this time we have been threat
ened with the presence of Mr. ELLIS B. SCHNA
BEL, whose feats hare been the admiration of
the Pennsylvanian for some weeks past. On
Friday night la6t, this person delivered himself
of a speech at the Court House, iu this place.
We bad the curiosity to hear what this great
champion of BCCBAKAN had to say, and con
Instead of discussing the issues of the con
test, the speech was made up of constant ref
erence and personal abuse of Judge W ILIIOT.
The terms applied to Judge W. were " quack,"
" mountebank," " lazy lubber," " infamous,"
" guilty of wilful and deliberate falsehood,"
and a variety of other choice epithet-a which
are supposed to be current amongst fish-women
and in the stews of New York. The speaker
certainly proved himself an adept in the use
of coarse vulgarity and low blackguardism, and
his familiarity with vitujieration such as 110
gentleman would descend to. We are aware
that such a blackguard places himself below
the notice of honorable persons, and we only
make allusion to him to say, that in conduct
ing the present contest, we hare endeavored
to treat our political opponents courteously and
fairly, and without descending to anything like
personalities. We had hoped that such would
be the case on each side. We do not believe
that personal attacks upon Judge WiLMOTwill
advance Mr. BCCHANAN'S prospects, and we
consider that those who have invited Mr.
SCHNABFL here, have not only injured their own
eaose, but have made themselves liable to re
tort—if anything eao justify retaliation. They
are responsible for the scurrilous exhibition of
bad passion which we have had, and if they
deem such attacks upon the standing and cha
racter of a citizen in good taste, or beneficial
to their cause, they are welcome to all the sat
isfacton they can obtain.
DEATH BED REPENTANCE. —Posters calling
a Democratic meetiug at Coudersport, Potter
Co., on the 16th, announced as a rallying cry,
M Buchanan, Breckinridge and Free Kansas !"
Rather too late to deceive the people, who
know the grievous wrougs which have perpe
trated to make it Slave Kansas
.LET. OUR MECHANICS READ.
The question really is. whether it is better for capital |
to own its own labor, or to hire it. We differ in regard
to this question' You liave determined the question one
wa- in Pennsylvania, and we have determined it anotiier
in Georgia. Ido not propose to interfere with your social
system, nor to controvert your decision. Do as you please.
1 a"k for the south that we shall 1* allowed to do s we
please. We have determined it is better fur us that capi
tal own its labor.
Such is the language of the Hon. IIKRSCHKL
V. JOHNSON, of Georgia, at the democratic
mass meeting in Philadelphia last week, as re
ported in the Pennsylvanion. Southern spea
kers claim that it is best " that capital shall
<n*n Us men labor," while we at the north con
teud that capital should hire it at remunera
tive wages. Mechanics I npon what side of
this question do you iutemd to range yourselves"'
Is it your policy to strengthen that class of
politicians, who believe that it is right to own
labor ? If this is the real question as claimed
by Mr. JOHNSON, will you uot rise in your
might, and say that if such are the views of
southern men, you must seek to restrict them
to the states where they are now entertained ?
It must be recollected that this doctrine is
openly promulgated at a large democratic meet
ing, and that it was reported in the immediate
orgnn of Mr. BUCHANAN. It therefore becomes
a new principle of the sham-democracy, to be
ultimately adopted into its platform. It is
high time that our laborers and mechanics
should understand this matter, and if they
wish to sustain free labor they must vote for
the republican nominee. The opinion of Mr.
JOHNSON is carried out by the extracts from the
southern press to which we add the following
from the Muscogee Herald, an Alabama Bu
chanan journal :
" Free Society ire sirl.ru of the name. li'hat is it
but a conglomeration of GREASY MECHANICS, filthy
operatives. small fisted farmer*, and moon-struck theo
rists ? All the northern, and especially the New England
states, ARE DEVOID OF SOCIETY FITTED FOR
WELL BRED GENTLEMEN, the prevailing das* one
meet* with is that of mtehunic* struiwlin g to be genteel
and small farmers irhn do thrir oirn drue/gery ; and yet
who are hardlv FIT FOR ASSOCIATION WfTA A SOU
THERN GENTLEMAN'S BODY SERVANT. This is
your free society which the northern horde* are endeavor
ing to extend into Kansas."
Look to your Ticket.
We again urge upon our Republican friends
the importance of attending to the WHOLE
TICKET. See that voters are supplied with
n full set of votes. Don't jiermit any trading
or bartering. It is as important for the suc
cess of our principles that the candidate for
the lowest office should succeed, as the highest.
Republicans ! you have organized for the
advancement of principle. In furthering that
object you have presented a Ticket. Eu-ry
memlier npon it, is entitled to your support.—
Don't swerve a hair's breadth, but consider
the ends you would accomplish, and the means
necessary for their advancement.
GET OUT THE VOTERS!
Wc urge upon our friends in the strong Re
publican towns, the importance of having ar
rangements made to get out every voteT. Have
your teams in readiness, and bring eTcry vo
ter in the township to the polls, Yonr oppo
nents will not lose an avnilable vote. They
will be furnished with funds from the custom
houses and |>ost offices, to get out their votes
and the Freemen of the county must counter
balance their money and efforts by personal
TOLD YOUR TICKETS !
Much valuable time might be saved and
many more votes secured by having the tiidcets
on the ground before the polls are open, ready
cut and folded, and tied in sets—eleven voles in
each set. See that each voter who desires it,
has a full set, and votes it too.
PRO-SLAVERY COALITION.— The rumors of a
coalition between the Democratic and Ameri
can parties grow stronger every day. The
New-York Mirror says
" We learn from sources that we can hardly
doubt, that the leaders of the Buchanan and
Fillmore parties have coine to an understand
ing, and are now at work, night and day, con
summating the coalition to defeat Fremont."
The Buffalo Commercial Advertiser, Mr.
Fillmore's home organ, in the course of an edi
torial article observes :
" The moment it is ascertained that Mr. Bu
chanan cannot carry his own State—that Penn
sylvania ia lost to the Cincinnati nominee—his
case will appear hopeless, and some new policy
will be adopted. Nay, this is admitted by
some of the Democratic leaders themselves."
The contingency here referred to is the vic
tory of the Republicans in Pennsylvania at the
October election, and by the phrase " new
policy" is simply meant the withdrawal of Mr.
Buchanan, practically, or the concentration of
his strength on an amalgamation ticket.
Prof. C. R. Cout'RN has left with us
twenty-one potatoes, weighing twenty-one lbs.,

Mouday evening Oct. 13.
Nkoko SI'KKBAOt. —in the Legiatature <>T 1 855, A mem
ber n lined Smith, fioin Allegheny, uttered a resolution
the tint day of the scsioii Lento wing upou negroes tie
right to vote—and BARTHOLOMEW LAL'OUTK. the
fusion candidate for Surveyor (Jeiieral. voted in the attii
mative. Add this vote to his votes on the .'ug Law. and
latporle is a pretty specimen of humanity to ask MUITK
*KX to vote for hitn.
We cut the above licnutifill paragraph from
the Kaslon Argu.s j the editor of which is very
evidently in the same desjn'ratel aud despair
ing condition of the Buchsuiiersgenerally. The
statement that LA PORTE voted for negro suffrage
is false, made without the slightest foundation,
as the journals of the House for the sessiou of
1865 show. Mr. SMITH, of Allegheny, did not
offer any such resolution on the first day of
the session ; but on the third day read in his
place and presented to the chair, a bin to
" confer upon colored persons the rights of
citizenship," which went nnder the rules to the
Judiciary Committee. On the 24th of Janua
ry (see journal H. It. page 100) the Commit
tee reported the hill with a negative recom
mendation, as the rights it conferred (negro
suffrage) wefe clearly unconstitutional. Janua
ry 20, the llonse refused to proceed to the
consideration of the bill (page 118) ; aud
January 27, (page 130) the antlior of the bill
having become satisfied of its unconstitution
ality, made a motion that its consideration be
indefinitely postponed, which was agreed to.
This was the end of the mutter. Mr. LAPORTL
had no opiortuiiity to vote to extend the right
of suffrage to uegroes, because no vote was ta
ken upou the hill, and the story is an unmiti
gated falsehood, without the shadow of truth.
DON'T NEGLECT THE STATE TICKET.
It is generally conceded that the result of
the election next Tuesday, will have a power
ful influence upon the Presidential contest. It
is the dwty of every Freeman who desires the
defeat of BITHANAN to rally at the polls next
Tuesday. A glorions triumph then, for the
Union State Ticket, secures a certain victory
Don't neglect to go to the Polls on Tues
day next, thinking you can vote on the 4th of
November to rebuke the political transgres
sions of the present Nutiorial Administration.
Your vote is needed now to swell the verdict
of disapprobation which will close up the Re
publican column for the great triumph in No
vember. Let Pennsylvania repudiate JAMES
PLATFORM on Tuesday next, and the question
is settled and the cause of Freedom victorious.
Look to it that every voter who wishes to
cast his suffrage in condemnation of the pro
slavery policy of the democratic party—in re
buke of the outrages in Kansas—lias a vote
for the State Ticket. The majority on our
County ticket, is of little consequence as to its
amount—but every vote for the State ticket,
is so much added to the grand result.
