Thursday Morning, October 30, 1862.
The excitement ocsastoneu by the late po
litical contest having passed away, and the vo
ters bav : ".cr qnietly settled down to their usual
avocations, we are disposed to address a fe\.
words to the Republicans of this County.
After seven years of unanimity and zeajous
laboring for the success of the principles of
the great Republican party of the Union, we
have lately had the poor spectacle of a por
tion of that endeavoring to overthrow its or
ganization, and leagued with its bittei oppo
nents to carry out schemes which could only
result in disaster to principles. That a large
majority of those who fell off frcm the Repub
lican organization were honest in their act on,
we have no doubt. They look what we be
lieve to be a wrong course to remedy evils, of
which they were disposed to complaiD. We
will not now stop to argue whether those evils
did or did not exist. We will leave that to
the "sober second thoughtof the people
We appeal to those Republicans—who arc
at heart attached to the Republican cause -
what good was to result from the election of
the so-styled People's Ticket ? It is notorious
that so far from emanating from the People,
that ticket was concocted by a clique of po
litical aspirauts, some of whom have already
"served out their time" in office, while others
are smarting under a feeling of not being suf
ficiently appreciated by the public. Amongst
all the active participants in the movement
there was not one whose moving cause of ac
tivity was not either revenge, disappointment,
or anticipated office. Those who complained
loudest of dictation and central influence, were
the verv men who would soonest bow to such
influences, if thereby they could advance their
With such men an affiliation'with the Demo
cratic leaders was not only easy but a natural
result. The latter are animated by an intense
dislike of Republican principles, aud bitterly
hostile to those who have boldly aud ably aa
vocated those principles. There is no surer
evidence of a man's usefulness to the Republi
can cause than the bitterness with which he is
assailed by Democratic leaders. This late coa
lition, then, had on the one side for its object,
the gratification of a feeling of hostility to
wards the champions of Republican principles,
on the part of the Democracy. It was fair
for them to form any coalition which had for
its purpose the overthrow of Republican prin
ciples, or the downfall of men who have stood
like a wall against the encroachments cf the
pro-slavery party. If the Democratic party
could overthrow the men who have fought the
battles of Freedom in Bradford and in the
State, so much was gained for them, aud they
did not scruple to accept the aid of professed
Republicans, so loug as no concession was ask
ed for them.
The great cause of the late defection in tld?
County, the inciting motive, unquestionably,
was to effect the election of Uuited States
Senator. The democracy, of course, desired
nothing so much as to defeat Mr. Wn MOT'S
re-election. While it is not to be denied that
styling themselves Republicans in this County,
were ineu who have uever cordially acted in
the Republican organization—men whose mo
tives were selfish, and who saw their interests
to be with the Republican organization, but
who have never been imbued with Republican
principles, nor useful nor active in promulgat
ing those doctrines. Such men, in accordance
with their intense selfishness, have been aspi
rauts for office, and failing to receive the con
fidence and support of the people, have waited
for a time when their treason could be the
most effective towards breaking down the Re
publican party. These men, not coutent with
opposing those more fortunate than they,
would raise their hands to strike down the
principles tlicy have professed to advocate.
The present time was judged to be a favora
ble opportunity to consummate schemes which
have been concocted for years. The Repu'
can vote of the County was weakened by the
volunteers she has offered to sustain our coun
try's flag. A heated canvass for nomination
had engendered much ill feeling. The occa-
sion was supposed to be ripe. Under the lead
ership of able and unscrupulous democratic
leaders, the programme was arranged. The
democratic vote was to be cast for the bolters'
Congressional and County ticket. In return
for this what was the recompense ? Does any
one believe that there was not some under
standing by which the Democracy was to be
rewarded in return ? What did the activity
and exertion of the Democrats for the bolters'
ticket, on the election day, meau ? Why
their undisguised aud fraternal cougratulutious,
when they supposed their plans successful ?
Was it not because they supposed they had
contributed, at least, towards the defeat cf
Mr. WU.MOT'S re-election ?
If the Representatives voted for by tbe De
mocracy had been elected, the people of Brad
ford would have had HU opportunity to become
fully acquainted with the scheme which many
sound Republicans unwittingly aided towards
accomplishing. Knowing that the people of
the County endorsed and approved Mr. W.'s
Senatorial career, the leaders were careful ou
all occasions to deny or evade the direct issue
It. was represented that Messrs. TERRY and
MCKEAN were the friends ol Mr. \V., and oue
of these gentlemeD, we believe, took frequent
opportunity to give personal assurances of bis
friendship for Mr. Wilmot. The issue of the
election has not left an opportunity to test
those professions of friendship, nor allow the
full development of the plaus which controlled
the late defection here, bat the unprejudiced
voters of the County must by this time be sat
isfied that no good results were inteuded nor
could come, either to Republican men or mea

Tfre New Stamp Duties.
The law in relation to stamp duties, nnder
the law of internal revenue, went into opera
tion ou the Ist instant. The law requires the
lollowiug articles to be stamped :
For a bauk check or sight draft for an
amount exceeding twenty dollars, a two-cent
stamp will be required ; for a promissory note
or draft, (other than sight,) stamps of various
amounts, from five cents upwards, are required;
a certificate of stock in an incorporated com
pany, twenty-five cent stamp ; a power of at
torney, twenty-five cents ; a passage ticket to
a foreign port, fifty cents to one aollar ; mer
chants and shippers have to pay stamp duties
of from ten cents to one dollar on bills of lad
ing, manifests for entry of clearance, certifi
cate of damage, entry of goods at cnstom
bouse, &c.; for a protest of uote or marine
protest, the stamp duty is twenty-five cents ;
on a deed of grant, from fifty cents upwards ;
a lease, fifty ceuts to one dollar ; a protest,
twenty-five cents ; a policy of insurance on
life or property will have from twenty-five
cents to one dollar added to its cost in the
way cf a stamp : telegraphic despatches are
taxed from one to three cents each ; bonds
and mortgages hove to be stamped aecordiug

ceipt is taxed from one to five cents.
There are heavy penalties for " making,
signiug, or issuing any instrument, document,

Tiie Political Raid in Bradford.
The result of Ihe late election in Bradford
County, Pennsylvania, is significant of some
important and somewhat distinguished facts ;
and as the election is now past, aud we can
not be charged with an attempt to influence
it, wc propose to examine the matter briefly
at this time.
Hon. David Wilmot's term as U. S. Sena
tor expires the 4th of March next, ilis re
election cf course depends on the complexion
of the next Legislature. At the late Republi
can Convention in that county, a division
| arose, growing out of the nomination ol Hon
Geo.Landoit lor Congress, (so it issaid) which
resulted in a bolting ticket being put imme
diately in the field, composed mainly of those
who failed to receive nominations at the regu
lar Conveution. The masses ot Republicans,
who thoughtlessly went into this movement,
said it had no reference whatever to Mr. Wil
mot, or his return to the United States Sen
ate, but was designed simbly to rebuke their
State -Senator for grossly misrepresenting
them in certain infamous legislation at Har
risburg. In thia they uo doubt were honest,
but the same compliment cannot be paid to
their leaders—while the former meant it onto
good the latter meant it unto evil. If we need
more than their own confessions and some
what premature boastings to that effect, the
election returns would be conclusive upon the
point. Those returns show that the great
I effort was to elect members of the Legislature
! hostile to David Wilmot, aud one cf their can
didates came within 76, and the other wiihi.i
161 votes of an election ; while the men with
! whom thev were to rebuke Ltutdou fell behind
i nearly 500 votes, and some of their tickets
were defeated by nearly 1000.
Disguise this thing as they may, it is patent
I on the face of it, that it was war upon Sena
I tor Wilmot —a war, too, which had been in
| contemplation and prepa r ation for many years;
! and we were sorry to see so many Republicans
' who were his true friends drawn into it under
the guise of rebuking Mr. Landon.
Let us for a moment view the past Af< w
years ago Mr. Wilmot arrayed hi self against
the insidious encroachments of that terrible
enemy to humanity which is now in armed
rebellion against our Government. But lie
did so, and afterwards refused to abandon that
noble position at the crack of the slave-driv
er's whip—because he refused to lay down and
roll over like a dog for a cracker at the com
mand of his party, that arrogant slave power,
Ln whose way be stood, swore eternal hostility
to him,and its slinks and menials at the North
have pursued him from that moment to the
present time with a virulence ar.d madness un
paralleled in our history. Alas, that Repub
licans who once threw up their hats for the
Wilmot Proviso should now be found in the
ranks of its unrelenting enemies, warring its
author to the knife, and the knife to the hilt.
That the great majority of them designed it
we do not for a moment believe ; but that
they have done it we do believe, and we also
believe they will continue to do it so long as
they continue in the service of such leaders.—
Let the lesson of yesterday be our guide for
the morrow.— Waverly Advocate.

We feel like congratulating the Democracy
of this District upon the result of the "nice

to Trut7 and his clique. They were to sup
port and elect Tracy to Congress, while Tracy
and his friends were to deftat the Republican
Senator and two Representatives in Bradford.
The Democrats did elect Tracy, but Tracy did
not defeat the Wilmot Senator and Represen
tatives The result is the election of a State
Senator and two Representatives W!H> will sup
port DAVID WILMOT for United States Senator.
This is not exactly what the managers bar
gained for. nor what the rank and file of the
party anticipated. When they were brought
up to the ballot box and made to deposit their
votes for a " wool dyed" Republican, they
were told that the bitter dose would be neu
tralized in the defeat of what they were told
was the Wilmot Senatorial and Representa
tive ticket in Bradford. As the Democratic
wire-pullers have been so beautifully foiled,
and their "bargain and sale" failing in the
accomplishment of the nicely arranged plan
we repeat that we feel like congratulating
them upon what they have made by the ope

FI.OKIXE and CUBA were members OF the Baptist Sun
day School in Springfield, where, among other things,
they learned many sweet songs. The beautiful piece be
" Shall we sing in Heaven forever,"
wa>. a great favorite with them, and thoujh their sweet
little voices are forever hushed on earth, yet shall they
Far beyond the rolling river.
Meet to sing and love forever,
In thai happy land."
They were buried, side by side, in the same coffin—
" beautiful even in death." May the sweet vision of their
tender faces, as we gazed upon tliem for the last time by
the fading Jijri.t of the setting sun, long dwell ia the
memory of the thrice afflicted parents.and beasastrong
cord, drawing them towards " that happy land " whither
their loved ones have gone !
Bereaved parents ! mourn not th# departed. The feet
of your children can nevergrastray now, for already do
they tread the gold-pa*e<J streets of the city of light and
life. There is uo sin nor pain—no sickness nor care
no sorrow nor death, in that bright clime where their
emancipated spirits now dwell.
Of each cf your children who have " passed over the
river," it may be truly said—
" Marly, bright, transient, chaste as morning dew.
She sparkled, was exhaled, and went to Heaven."
I'ut your trust in that Almighty One who " is oar
refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."
IJOVC and serve him here, and then
"A'l.d! you meet your dear lost children,
lu that happy land." H.

The leaves were turning yellow when she died,
The little blossoms wore their caps of seed—
And birds that sang of summer eloquent,
Were silent in the mead.
The leaves were turning yellow when she went.
How many joys and sweet hopes with her died—■
Oh. when torn front us. how our hearts were rent,
To lose our darling child.
