ARE YOU ASSESSED.
The law requiring electors to be assessed
teu days before the election, Saturday, Sept.
28, will be the last day, and it is time that
some attention was directed to the matter.—
Look to your own names Republicans,and then
those of your neighbors. Let uot a vote be
lost by inattention to the assessments.
It should be known that to entitle a man
to vote at the coming election, it is necessary
that he shall have beeu resident of the State
one year,and of the district or township where
he offers his vote, ten days, aud that he has
paid a State and County tax which was asses
ted at least ten days previous to the day of
Young men, however, between twenty-one
and twenty-two, who are qualified in other re
spects are eutitlcd to a vote without payment
of any tax.
Aud for the persons who have ouce been
voters in the State aud removed therefrom aud
returned a residence of six months in the State
is sufficient ; but iu all cases w here the payment
of a tax is necessary, it must have been assess
ed teu days previous to the election.
ARE THE VOTERS READY 1
But a few days now intervene before the
October election ? Are the voters of this
County aware of the great importance of suc
cess ou the second Tuesdav iu October ? We
urge upon our friends thus early to make pre
parations for a FULL VOTE. Iu the strong
Republican towns of the County, there is great
danger that the votes will not all be out. Let
arrangements be made to poll every vote. Your
opponents will uct lose an available vote. We
must be equally active aud vigilant and a cer
tain triumph awaits us,not only iu the County
but in the State.
ANDREW G. CURTIN.
The enemies of the Republican party, and
consequently the foes of the best interests, the
progress and prosperity of Pennsylvania, are
devoting their entire force aud fund of false
hood to the injury and impeachment of Andrew
G. Curtin. Failing to appreciate the energy
aud indomitable courage of the man, they can
not fully comprehend the perseverance with
which he is contesting the electiou, uor can
they understand the zeal and euthusiasm with
which he is welcomed in every part of the
Commonwealth. They hear of his success in
the North, and snecriugly attempt to combat
it with assertions of his unpopularity it the
West. When he passes through the West,
eliciting the admiration of the people of that
locality, his opponents proclaim his weakness
in the East—but there again they fail, as he
is welcomed by the people, and recognized in
the metropolis of Philadelphia as the defender
of their rights, and the advocate of all their
interests. The friends of Henry D.Foster are
dismayed at these evidences of the popularity
and strength of Col. Curtin,and therefore seek
to arrest his progress by strewiug his path with
a'l sorts of uumauly falsehoods, bitterly com
plaining, the while, that the Republican press
retort with the truth against Foster, corrobora
ting their assertions by the fairest reference to
No candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania
siuee the days of Simon Snyder or George
M olf, ever presented a fairer name, a more
spotless character, than that which Andrew
G. Curtin presents to the people of this State.
Aud the people understand aud appreciate this
presentation of ability and integrity. They
have had the opportunity to judge for them
selves within the past two months. Along the
Schuylkill and the Delaware, in the North and
the West, through the counties of the centre
©f the State, Co! Cortic has been challenging
their admiration by the boldness with which
he enunciates his couvictious and the perfect
fearlessness with which he defines his position
on all the questions affecting the prosperity of
the country and the interests of the Common
wealth he is destined to govern. He is of
Pennsylvania—for the protection of her inter
ests and the elevation of her labor, for the
development of her resources, and the main
tenance of her power and influence in that
confederation of States to whose past glory
she has contributed a large share.and in whose
present strength she dispenses a most import
ant influence. Because this is true, the enemies
of Republicanism turn all their batteries on
Col. Curtin. Because he is brave oud perse
vering, enthusiastic and determined, frank in
the expression of his opiuions and unhesitating
in the avowal of his preferences, the press sup
porting the desperate fortunes of Foster, con
vinced that they are degraded by their divis
ions, seek to drag down to their own level all
who boldly stand up in defence of Pennsyl
vania's real interests, honor and glory.
October will demonstrate the popularity of
of Coi. Curtin through his election by a ma
jority of Twenty Thousand. The result is
already a fixed fact in the conviction and de
termination of the people of Pennsylvania.
PENNSYLVANIA THE BATTLE GROUND
The Democrats appear to have abandoned
all hope of carrying New York, and Pennsyl
vania is now the object of their attention. They
will concentrate all their energies upon it,
lavishing what money they have to spare, to
carry it, and will try to re-enact the scenes of
1850. Pennsylvania is to be the battle
ground of the campaign,aud the great struggle
will take place iu October, over the election
It is well, therefore, that our people are ap
prised of the fact iu season. Now that they
know it, they will have the greater incentive
to work their hardest for success in the pre
liminary but decisive contest.
Much, if uot most of the money contribut
ed in New York to corrupt and carry Pennsyl
vania, will be spent in Philadelphia. Fortu
nately for the friends of Freedom, however,
things are not now as they were in 1856.
Then, ever officer in the State House row was
a Democrat and it was cousequeutlv easy to
issue fonred naturalization papers by the trunk
full ; now, every officer but one, in that row,is
a Republican,aDd that game is blocked. Then
too, they had all, or nearly all, the electiou
officers, the Republican party not having been
organized until after the choice of those of
ficers, and it was perfectly easy to make elec
tion returns to suit the necessities of the party,
uow there is a representative of the Opposition
party in nearly every electiou precinct in the
city, and that the party has the control of a
majority of them. In addition to this, a law
of last winter gives them full power to prevent
frauds at the election, if they choose to exer
cise it, as they will undoubtedly do.
In this view of the case there is uot so
much reason to dread the advent of these
mercenary Democratic politicians from New
York, who go upon the principle that " every
man has his price," particularly every man iu
On the other hand, it will be of great ad
vantage to the People's cause, if it stirs up, as
it should do, the workers of the Opposition to
watchfulness and zeal. All that we need now,
is activity ; that insures our success.
We not only can, we must, elect CURTIS in
October. He has gallantly and triumphantly
borne onr standard throughout in the State,
and we rnnst not see it stricken down in his
hands. We owe it to the cause to elect him
by an overwhelming majority, and he is no
true friend of LINCOLN who refuses both to
vote and to work for CURTIN.
Friends ! The election of CURTIS will effect
ually settle the November contest. Our sue
cess in October will deprive the enemy of all
hevrt for the Xovembr; fight. Up, then, and
to work with a will, and all the more eagerly
that the enemy has acknowledged his weak
ness by recourse to the last resort—the cor
rupt use of moucy.
THE PRINCE OK WALES is to be in Philadel
phia on the 9th of October, the day of the
State Election. The visit has been so planued
as to enable him and his noble keepers to see
how American republicans conduct au excit
ing political coutest. In all probability the
party will put up at the Continental, in the
very whirl aud center of the excitement,where
with little effort they can see the blaze of nu
merous transparencies at the various head
quarters, and that vast army, with torch and
1 auner, which before midnight will certainly
fill Chesnut street with the deafening huzzas,
announcing election of their favorite candidate
FOSTER ON TIIE STUMP. —Foster took the
stump iu Somerset county pretty soon after he
got out of woods at Cressou. He was so
oracular on that occasion that the Breckinridge
aud Douglas papers have been quarrelling ever
since as to what be really did say. He has not
bad the courage, since, however, to speak in
any other place. He dare not go before the
Iberia, Morrow County, Ohio, was on
Thursday last the scene of a fugitive slave ex
citement. The United States Marshals went
from Cincinnati to arrest three negroes who
had escaped from Germantown, Ky. They suc
ceeded, however, in securing but one of them
—being prevented from arresting the others
by the interference of the citizeus. A desperate
affray occurred, iu which firearms were used,
though no person was killed
THE OCTOBER ELECTION.
Takes place two weeks from last Tuesday.
The campaign has slipped asvav so quietly that
some do uot realize the fact of the election being
so near at hand.
Two weeks is but a short time to work. Re
publican reader ! Is your district thoroughly
organized ? Has it been canvassed ? Do you
know your friends from your enemies, and are
you fully prepared to bring out the Ilepublicau
l)o uot shirk these questions and turn them
over to your neighbor or some one else,but an
swer them yourself. If you cannot answer
them affirmatively, consult at once with your
political friends and do what has beeu too
long left uudone.
The great secret of success, in politics as iu
war, is iu organization. Providence helps the
heavy battalions ; so Napoleon said, and he
had some experience in that matter. A scat
tered army, withont a head, never yet won a
battle ; and never will. Success lies within
our grasp, at this election, but it can be won
only by straight-forward, practical, organized
work. See to it, in time then, friends,that the
one thing needful is not wantiug.
We are satisfied that the proper spirit is
aroused amongst our Republican friends to en
sure a full vote if the proper means are not
neglected. It should be remembered however,
that it is impossible to poll every vote without
great effort. There is a class of voters, who
cannot be got to the polls without being visit
ed and brought out. The most efficient way
to ensure a full poll is to appoint School Dis
trict Committees, whose business is to see that
every voter is assessed, and on baud when the
day of election arrives. In many of the towns
this has already been done. We trust our
Republican friends, where such action has not
been taken, will delay no longer.
Have your Townships thoroughly organized,
and a Committee appointed to take charge of
each School District, who will attend to their
business, and see that no votpr is left behind
ou the second Tuesday of October. Such ac
tion will give us a rousing majority, and aid
materially in the election of Curtfn, and the
victory to follow in November.
fc-J* The Prince of Wales on Thursday
evening, at Detroit, experienced a very decid
ed foretaste of the receptions which await him
in his brief tour through the United States.—
He reached Windsor at 8 o'clock, and went ou
board the Detroit and Windsor ferry-steamer
Wtndsor, where he was received by the Cov
ernor of Michigan, the Mavor ar.d Conncilmon
of Detroit, and a uumbcr of promiuent citi
zens. When the steamer reached American
waters, the Mayor welcomed the Prince, as
Baron RENFREW, to the United States. The
river and the city presented a magnificent
spectacle,the steamers aud other vessels iu the
former being hung with variegated lamps, and
decorated with banners aud emblems, and the
latter being splendidly illuminated. Rockets
and other fireworks were let off continually,
and the river was a blaze of light, the whole
forming the grandest display wituessed hy his
Highness during his sojnrn in America. The
crowd was so dense at the landing place that
it was found impossible to form the procession
which had been arranged to escort him to his
hotel, and after several ineffectual attempts it
was found necessary for him to enter a private
carriage aud proceed through by-streets. His
suite followed him shortly afterwards, escorted
by the firemen of Detroit. The enthusiasm of
the crowd was something treineudous, and
found vent in cheer upon cheer. Friday,after
a drive through the city with Mayor, his pro
gress being impeded at every step by enthusi
astic crowds, the Prince with his suite pro
ceeded to the Railroad depot and took his de
parture for Chicago, where, after a somewhat
tedious journey, he arrived at 7 12 o'clock in
the evening. Here, as at Detroit, an immense
coucourse awaited his arrival, though,through
the admirable regulations of the Police, every
thiug was doQe " decently and in order.''
LA MOUNTAIN, the balloonist, has had
another perilous adveuture. He made an
ascent from Albany, and traveled at the rate
of a mile a minute for thirty miles, when he
attempted to land at East Lanesboro', Mass.
He was caught in a tornado, and dashed
against a stone wall with such violence as to
knock him senseless. The balloon, however,
cleared the wall, and dragged at a fearful rate
of speed for considerable distauce, until it
fiuully collapsed, being torn nearly to tatters
LA MOUNTAIN was thrown out, and remained
unconscious for half an hour, though he was
immediately taken care of by some persons who
witnessed his perilous descent. He was ter
ribly bruised, though fortunately none of his
bones were brokeu.
SQF The Clearfield Republican says " Henry
D. Foster rests on his past record, not on
straddling two platforms." If he doesn't
" straddle two platforms, - 'will the editors of
that paper be kind enough to inform us which
one of the "two" Democratic platforms he
does ride ? It will be news to most people.
An explosion of fire-damp occurred in
a coal mine at Pittston, on Saturday, which
caused the greatest excitement. Six men were
in the mine at the time, all of whom, however,
with the exception of one, managed to escape.
It is said to be FOSTER'S great weak
ness that he is unable to say " No." He seems
equally unable to say " Yes." Is he for Breck
inridge ?or for Douglas? He cannot answer

Sheriff WOOKRFKF, on Thursday 13th
inst., started for Philadelphia, with four prisoners— two
sentenced to the Penitentiary, and two to the House of
Refuge. On Thursday night, when about one and a half
miles above Port Clinton, 81-RTON H. BARRETT, convict
ed of horse stealing and sentenced to three years im
prisonment in the Penitentiary, made a bold attempt to
regain his liberty. While the cars were going at rapid
speed, he leaped out of the window, so suddenly, that
those having him in charge were not aware of his pur
pose until they taw him disappear. The traiu was stop
ped, after some little delay, and the Sheriff aud others
went back expecting to find BARRETT disabled or dead
from his dangerous leap. Upon arriving at, the spot,
they discovered where he had alighted, but he had made
gpod his escape. That he was not instantly killed, or
at least disabled, was owing to his good fortune in strik
ing upon a pile of ashes and line coal. After making
diligent but unsuccessful search, the Sheriff offered a re
ward for his apprehension, and went OR to Philadelphia
to deliver his other prisoners. On arriving at Philadel
phia a despatch awaited him that BARRETT was retaken,
having been captured about five miles from the place of
his escape. lie was again taken in charge and placed in

watch, somewhere on the road from his residence to, or
—" Misfortunes never come singly," and " it never
rains but it pours," are proverbs that seem to be verified
in this case. On Thursday evening, as the six o'clock
mail train, on the Elmira and Williamsport Railroad was
passing South Creek, three horses belonging to Mr,
JOHNSON were upou the track, near a bridge, having
broken from their pasture. At the approach of the
train, the horses were unable to leave the track, owing
to the bridge, and were run into by the engine, before it
could bo stopped Two of them were killed instantly,

DISTRESSING OCCURRENCE. —On Sunday even
ing last, MART BERNICE, youngest child of I)r. E. H.
MASON, of this place, an interesting girl of two years of
age, while at her grand father's, (JARED WOODKCPF,) in
Xlonroe township, was poisoned by swallowing cobalt,
which had been prepared for the purpose of destroying
flics. The best known remedies were applied, but inef
fectually, and she died in about eight hours after the
cobalt had been taken.
This distressing affliction should be a warning to oth
ers how they use such preparations. Such occurrences
are not rare, and are liable to occur, when such deadly
poisons are placed within the reach of small children.

nieut, the measure of restriction, whatever it
may be, imposed by the Federal Constitution
on the powers of the Territorial Legislature
over the subject of domestic r< latious, as the
same has been or shall hereafter be finally deter
mined by the Supreme Court of the United
States, should be respected by all good citizens
and enforced with promptness and fidelity by
every branch of the Federal Government.
OROANIZE.—Let every friend of LINCOLN and
CUKTIV ask himself the question, is his district
is organized for the SECOND TPESDAY IN OCTTO
BER If fce does not know that his district is
thoroughly organized, attend to it at once.—
Remember, that what is everybody's busiuess
is nobody *, and the ouly way to make sure
that it is done is to do it joursy'lf.

THE OXYGENATED BITTERs
Are believed by many who have heen cured of the lr/
Complaint* to be the only medicines which tin, mat
medica afford* for their infallible cure. It i* not un '
holic preparation, which, while giving a momentary It '' '
nlus. redu'-e* the ay-tem in the i-ame ratio ; but one d°
tinctand different from any medical preparation n '
| compounded, and which will, in moat case*, extract'./
d-.sease by the roots and restore the patient to pri.te*
, health. iu proof of which, tcatiuiuuy of the very hit" 1 '
' est and unexceptionable character is presented. '
We call the attention of the readet to the following >,
; tcr from ('resident .Saint, of Weslcyan University _
MIDDLKTOWN, Conn., Feb. 2->,
! Messrs. SrrrnW. FOWLE A Co.,— Gentlemen I fi rs ,
made use of the Ox VGEN ATED BITTKKS some seven V
eight years since. Having suffered for twenty C j
i from a form of Dyspepsia, which was attended with'
nervous headache, on an average of not less than vi
day iu a week. I was induced by the unpretending r /
commendation of l)r. Green ' to try one bottle and if ■
benefit was received to discontinue the use."
The ue of one bottle warranted a further trial, to,
extent of some three or four, with a careful observe, ,
of the accompanying directions. Tiie result was an g
most entire relief from the usual dyspeptic symptom,
and their depressing, painful consequences, "j be| Kv ' r
tlie-e Hitters produced an entire change in the habit* u'
i my system and upon the active energies of the digestif,
oigans. 1 now deem myselfaa exempt from Dyspep'..,
as most persons. These Bitters have also been of g.
vice to other members of my family.
Very respectfully vour*.
