ALL HAM, OONNEOTIOUT !
The town elections held in Con
nectient on Monday last, show large
Republiban gains, and evidence that
she will assuredly follow Vermont
and Maine in November. The gains
for the Republicans are tnarked and
We trust that these noble exam
ples will stimulate every Republican
in Bradford to be at the polls on
Tuesday next, with a determination
to devote the whole day to the ser
vice of his country, and ,aid in swell
ing the glorious v ctory which we
trust awaits us in the Keystone.
i THE pitospgar
From distant portions of the State,
come anxious inquiries concerning
this Congressional district. The per
sistent bragging and blustering of
Plouxr, has led his friends outside
of the District to entertain hopes of
his election, and has sometimes stag
gered Republicans Who did not know
the man, and his habit of boastibg
and promising impossibilities. We
assure our Republican friends both
in this District, and without, that the
political skies never were clearer
here, than at present. The Republi
cans of Bradford are thoroughly uni
ted and awake to the importance of
the election on Tuesday next. We
shall poll a large vote, and have
reason to expect 4,500 majority in
the County. We do not believe it
can possibly fall below 4,000. Either
insures the election of Judge Mums
by a decided majority, admitting the
most extravagent estimates of our
opponents. Nothing can be mon
certain in political affairs, than his
return to the position he has so ably
filled for e the past three years,
A LAST WORD I
We cruet that we have faithfully
discharged our duty, by impressing
upon Republicans the importance of
the result in this State on Tuesday
next. The defeat of last fall by a
majority which might have been
overcome by the stay-at-home Repub
licans of Bradford; should be a suffi •
cient warning of the danger that
attends the non-performance of a
Freeman's highest duty. There can
not be a single Republican in Brad
ford who is not sensible of the impor
tance to the country of casting his
own vote. There has never been an
election in this State, upon which
hung such stupendous results. The
October election may decide the
Presidential contest. If Pennsylva
nia elects the Republican State tick
et, the Presidental question is virtu
ally settled. If the vote is close, or
adverse, the struggle is prolonged
We . again urge upon every Repub•
!icon the importance of voting on
Tuesday next. Not only of voting,
but giving the day to the service of
the country. It is too late for us to
point out or argue the questions at
issue. _ They have been thoroughly
canvassed, and are well understood.
The great issue remains to be settled.
Shall the Republicans administer the
government, or shall it pars into the
control of Rebels ? If you could give
years of service in the Union ranks,
braving death and danger,and under
going fatigue and deprivation, to de
fend the nation from the treason of
Rebels—if you could give your son
or brother for the same noble purpose
..—can you not give one day now to
perpetuate the fruits of years of war
Give one day to the Country I we
say to every true patriot, to every
friend of Freedom ! The marshalled
hosts under GRANT and &nun never
went into a contest more fraught
with good or evil results to the Na
tion, than that to be fought on Tues
day next. If the Republicans in
Pennsylvania are defeated from thou
sands of Rebel throats will come the
same Rebel yell,our brave boys have
so often heard and gallantly answer
ed. The result, ruder, depends in a
meaanre, upon your vote. You share
the responsibility of the decision.--
Discharge your duty as becomes an
intelligent, upright citizen, and leave'
the result in the hands of Him who
guides the destinies of nations.
I. Have you any aged and infirm
Republican voters ? flee to it that
they are brought to the pollisio vete.

Economy is always the, favorite

becomes satisfied that the i3'eople hag

resorts to the " atop th ief" cry. of

tion boards in this county to seventy - 1
five cents per day. This , brilliant,
stroke of public economy Stood upon
the statute books for a year or two,
and was then repealed. •
Now, Puna= promises that if he
is elected to Congress, l ha will have
the pay of members reducCd one
half. There are people uncharitable
enough to think that eved that would
be placing a high estimate upon his
labors. He also promises, we under
stand, to stop all extraaganne, re
duce the expenses of the Gbvern
ment, and bring abont a season of
genefal financial honesty and pros
perity, a sort of political millenium.
This is an excellent pledge from 'a
man who if elected i to Congress
would co-operate with the scoundrels
who plunged the country into civil
war, and caned the nation to be
burdened with its present 'debt, the
reponsibility of which he shares in

him inform the people how much he
pays, with his large prOperty, for the

proof. If he is evading the Payment

Mucus to Congress for the third time
is a tribute to hie fidelity, industry
and usefullness. It is as it should
be, and the beet interests IA the Mr
trict demand that he be elected.—
*One half of official ability cqmes from
experience. The best talents and the
amplest learning are of little real
value to a "Congressman until he
'acquired the tact and skill which
actual participation in the business
of legislation atone can give. A man
does not know what to do or how
and when to do it,and,what is a great
deal more important, what not to un
dertake, until he has gone through
one session and he is an apt - scholar
who learns all hie in that period.,
There is scarcely' an instance on rec
ord of a Congressman who gained a
leading influence in the House or Sen
ate in two years, unless, indeed, he
had gained legislative experience
and skill elsewhere. Mr. Clay,whose
'brilliant Congressional' career may
seem to be an exception tirotir state
ment, owed his leadership partly to
his exceptionally brilliant personal
qualities, but quite as much to the
fact that' the other members had
quite as little experience hehad,and
far less assiduity, ambition and
audacity. For two terms Daniel
Webster was merely "the member
from Massachusetts." John C. Cal
houn, in his first term, merely gave.
an intimation of what he would be ;
his first speeches compares with his
later ones as the spluttering, plies
phoresent glare of the match with
the clear and steady flame of the
lamp. Mr. Stevens himself admitted
that during his first term of service
he was a mere plodder after influ
ence, of little weight or use.- Bat for
the wisdom of constituencies in re
electing men to Congress for term
after term, we should have lost the
service and influence of the greatest
statesman this country has produced.

VICTOR E Pram, the democratic
nominee of this DiStriet for Congress.
Remembering thSt the Convention;
which assembled at Towanda in Sep.
tember, and named Col. Plum as
its candidate for Congrese,at the same
time most unequovically endorsed
the platform laid down at New York,
by the National Democratic . Conven
tion, and also pledged the support of
the Democrats of Bradford County to
the support of Slymosa and Barra,
and also remembering that the Dem
ocritic Convention of the other Coun.
ties, composing this ,Congressional
district, has done the same thing, and
having heard that homer has before
General Grant's nomination for the
Presidency by the Republican party,
saidlrepeatedly that he would sup
p ort General Grant for President no
matter what party nominated .
I had some curiosity to learn - from
his own mouth whether he intends to
keep his oft repeated promise. I list
ened attentively to Flours's .speech
from beginning to end ; it was made
up of his accustomed personal abuse
of lending Republicans, and of his ac
customed misrepresentations of - the
principles of the Republican party,
and of laudation of himself, laying
claim tothaving organized and car
