I . R. STORES for Sheriff, in pursuance
of amarrangement made by; . the lead
t ers sOtne, weeks since. While Mr:
smuts and the other manipulators
or the party had the power to carry
out the agreement, it was far from
meeting the approbation of many of
the delegates, to say nothing of sev
several gentlemen who *ould have
'raised no objectionio beingplaeed up
on the ticket,but did not care tb subinit
thiir elei4s simply to be sacrificer
on Mr. STORES' altar s It Was freely
talked that all the other Candidates
mutt be traded and traffieed in the
intrest of the Sheriff, and that' Mr.
S. `Made that arrangentent the only
condition upon WhiCh he would put
his money into the canvass.
Agreeably with the arrangement,
Mr. STORES was not to be , found in
Towanda on the day of. the Conven
tion; bat - his friends kept the spirits
or the faithful ekuberent and Whirl
ouls during the day in a manner pecu
liar to
,Democratic politicians. On
Monday when the unwilling (?)
didate made his appearance upon the
streets, his usually smiling coun
tenance was somewhat elongated, acid
the report soon becaxne current that
Ite had not yet conclinled to accept (?).,
This was part' of the. game. .134, by
urgent solicitations from his friends,
hCfinally announced his acceptance
of the empty honor, protesting the
while that he did not want the office,
and that he : only yielded' in compli

THE way the story got afloat that
the - doors - of - Governor HAirramfrr's
stable, -at Harrisburg, were made of
walnut, at si,great cost to the State,
is thus explained : A Democratic
country editor was in Harrisburg
some- time ago, and in the course of
his travels around the streets he no
- ticed an engine house, and made in
quiry of a fireman to know-what kind
of a building it was, to which the fire
man replied that it was Governor
ILturttatirr's stable. His eye sight
not being very good,pecially on
this occasion, he was ve iy easily im
posed upon. The doors of thel Gov
ern-or's stable are made of oak and
painted with the common fire-proof
painy,and they Were there at the
time of his election. --
THE leading temperance men, if not
the " temperapce leaders," are slowly
getting their eyei open to the fact
' that their present political movement
is simply aiding the Democratic par- -
ty, and they are beginning to act ac
cordingly. Father HERITAGE, in his
Temperance Bleseing this week, hinds
down the names of the Prohibition
candidates for Governor and State
Treasurer, and throws his Influence
for the Republicans. -- Father Hun;
one of the oldest and beet known
temperance lecturers in the State, is
addressing large meetings in Western .
Pennsylyartia, opposing and depre
cating the coerse now being pursued
by his temperance friends.

the tallicy and duplicity Oi such
reasoning will be apparent to the
most casual observer. •
The Republican patty has: always
been the party of retrench; ent and°
reform. When 11. ink; power
in this State twenty years since, the,
Commonwealth was burdened with a
debt of over $40,000,000 and the
people were groaning under 'onerous
taxes. A few years later the Rebell-
ion, instigated by the Democratic
pithy; &died In,n 'additional indebted
ness of several millions of dollars, but
to-day the actual debt of the State is
only about $16,000,000, 'while the
State, tax on /real estate, and most
kinds of personal property has been
entirely removed; schools have been
established for the education of the
soldiers' orphans, and our free school
system has ste . adily advanced . until
tolda l v Pennsylvania, in everything
that goes to make a great and pros
perous State,is second to no other
lin the Union-.
In 1860 wheh the Refiablicab party
Comic into poWer in the Natietr, the
Administration found itself without
credit at home or abroad,' a depleted
treasury, a deraorilized army, a
navy scattered to the foar winds, alid
the Nati•anal sathority repudiated
and defied In eleven States; the pub
lic offices filled with traitors, abetted
and encouraged 'by the party which
had held alnitstit unihterrupted sway
in the country fOr nearly forty Years ;
Under BUCHANAN the Democratic
party abaffdtlated the Union and sur
rendered the government' into •the
.hands of traitors. . Havethey,.ever
given any evidence of repentance for
these enormous crimes? In 1864 their
National Convention pronounced the
war a &Hare; Mid dthiancltd a cem
pronalse with rebels; and prominent
members of the party held a confer
ence in Canada with leading rebels.
Among the syinpathizers with the
Rebellion who. attended ,the confer
ence Was 'VICTOR E. PIOLLET, who
has now been rewarded for his trea
sonable sentiments during the war
by a nomination on the Democratic
State ticket. And it is a notorious
fiat that such inert as FRANK Huonzs
stint BuCkkaw, wha boisted of their
disloyalty during the war, now con
trol and lead the party in this State;
and what is true of Pennsylvania is
equally. true 'of the party in the Na.
tion. In the South no man is, recog
nized by the Deniocratieparty unless
he was conspicuous as a'rebel. Nei
ther is this all. Men known to be
rotten.and corrupt are placed in pc:p
sitions of trust, and screened by the
party when their iniquit* has been
proven. On the other hand, the Re
piiblicah party ;;has meted ont swift
and t'ertaiii punishment; to') all in
power who have been recreant to
their ,trust.' A comparison' of the
records ,Of the two _parties will be
sufficient to satisfy the most skeptical
of the saPeriority of Republican rule.

ter an experience of many years w4h

not questioned, but is found impossi

irresistible tendency of it is to nomi

populous pa of the county. •This
was one of 9 arguments we advan

here, and V * e it is sufficient in it

forever set& the question as far
as Bradford is concerned.
LET us give the Republican State
and County tipkets a long pull, a
strong pull andla pull 'altogether , from
now until the November election.
This county has been set down for
two • thousand majority; let 'us try
now to make it three thousand, at
least. We can do that if we but put
our shoulders to the wheel. Let no
Republican take a place in the rear
rank. In the front line is where hard
blows are given and taken, and there
is where every vigorous and active
Republican should put himsel fat once.
-Tun groans men base their hopes
of electing their men on the treachery
of Republicans. They are openly
boasting that certain Repnblicans'are
offering to "sell out." We don't be

excuse for any Republican to oppose
the ticket. If all the trickery any one

sufficient to change results.

The victory gained in the Penn

terday by the inflationists and repu
diators is one of the most significant
events of the def. So far as can now
be judgedi it Nil tiellg almost certain
the adoptioh of id inflation Ostrom'
by the Democratic National Conven
tionnext year, and makes it extreme•
ly probable. that the flnanciat issue
will be. the principal one in the Pres•
idential canvass. It hardly posst
•bre that the Delnderatie party can
fail to fail nuder the substantial con
trol of the inflationists and repudia
tors, now that these have carried the
day in the tat great States of Ohio
and Pennsylvania. The Democratic
voters of those States constitute (in°.
filth of the entire party in the Union.
Even if their representatives alone
were to enter the Democratic Nation

The political situation has become
suddenly grave, No, enliOtenod
citizen or true patriot can be indiffer
ent to the action of the Pennsylvania
Democratic State Convention in its
session at Erie reported in our 'col
umns this morning. , an alarm
ing proof that the inflation hekesy is
-spreading, and that it islikely to ex
ert a dominant control over one of
our great political parties. We, re
cord, with profound regret and sorrow,
that in an Eastern State, a great and'
influential State, the Stat't *hich
ranks nest to New York in impor
tenet, the Democratic party' has been
conquered by the inflationists, and
repeats and endorses the phio. plat
form. This Democratic madness
forebodes an Iliad Of woes. i It fore
shadows a triumph of the inflationists
in the Democratic National' Conven
tion next year.—Arm York.Heralfr.
• On financial „issues, which are a
question of economic science, their
platform is the mere outcome of suff
ering ignorance, much as if a Lehigh
coal-heaver rout of work had resent
fully denounced the, transit of Venus
expeditions as a job of the Astrono
mers, and the correction Of the son
distance as a useless piece ot abtruse
information,—New York lirorld;
Despite the splendid fight and
hard,Won victory of the hard-money
Democrats in the Committee, on Reso
lutions lastnight inflation is rampart
and triumphant before the conven
tion. When it met this morning the
greenback advocates had bettn their
work. < Reports were circulated that
Wall street and the national hanks
had brought up certain members of
the committee, and other equally ab
surd reports were started. When the
platform was read a spirited debate
ensued. The hard:money men, led
by Souder of Allentown, fought
gallantly for the platform as first
adopted by the committee, but were
out-toted at.every point. The result
. a great disappointment to every
prominent Democrat, as it is a defeat
for both Wallace and Randall, who
labored unceasingly for a sound plat
form, .iind while all urge the import
ance of victory in the interest; of re
form in Xovember, it is feared the
party' has taken upon itself a heavy
load. Hardly a single representa
tives man of the paity will defend its
financial positions.H.Ballimore Ga
Thus the. Democracy of Pennsyl
vania go into the canvass committed
to the policy of inflation and repnda,
tion—rejecting the leadership of hard
money men like Solider for men like
that of Hukhes, who holds the theory
that any piece of paper stamped by
the Government and representing on
its face so many dollars or cents is
of as much intrinsic value as a piece
of gold of the legal weight and fine
ness, representing a like number of
dollars and cents. It is stated that
Cyrus L. Pershing, who was nomina
ted fof Governor, is a hard-money
man, but he will, ' of course, be ex
pected to swallow the platform and
"go with his party," for the policy
of dishonor and contempt of all the
obligations of decency and integrity.
Newark Courier.
For the first time. in the history of
the Democratic party the Democrats
of an Eastern State, in convention
assembled, have declared themselves
In favor of paper money against spe
cie, and have recommended the infla
tion of our currency. They have
squarely and unanimously endorsed
the theories of the Ohio inflationists,
and they have done it at a 'time well'
calculated to strengthen the latter.—
This is a little short of a revolution
against all the fundamental principles
of the Democratic party, and against
all the measures heretofore tidhered
to by the party, under all circum
stances. It is neither more nor less
than an abnegation of DeMocracy by
a serious number at a • most serious
time.—Brooklyn Eagle.
'They will go to destructiOn on such
a platform, as sure as 181'6 comes.—
Wilmington Ccrmmercial.
When, in the face of this, the Ohio
madness is • repropnced in Pennsyl
vania, it must be adMitted that the
danger is more imminent than had
been supposed. Should Ohio and
Pennsylvania at the State elections
both declare for inflation, we are
afraid that it would be impossible to
prevent the adoption of an inflation
platform by the Democratic rational
Convention. The narrow partizan
temper of Democratic journals which
pretend to favor hard money strength.

The ltepublieata3 of'New York,
faithful to justice and libeity, to the
supremacy of the i constjtution, to
national unity and the just rights or
the States, makes the following dec
laiation of principles ;
- First—The National Government Should remain
In the hands of those who sustain the guarantees
of the amended constitution, and in pnisnante of
ptiVre at srage b iri t al h t e etn i gil l e a l i rnv trt i rl Y tert n ullin
nap, generous and feybestringnatunial policy in the
Soutlifun States, &firm refusal to use the military
'Ayer except for purposes clearly defined in the
constitution, and a local enforcement of the tui
tional authority by those only who are In sympathy
with such a policy, and will bp' ally support it.
Second—We d e mand honesty, economy and era
cieney In every branch of the State and National
administrations, prompt Investigation of all char
•ges of wrong doing, and rnhilnet, capon:ire! proses
cation find punishitteht Of Won Stets; ire therez
fore heartily commend • the act onof all otlicers,
whether of the State Or Rational gOvernments, in
their honest efforts for the correction of public
abuses. We pledge to theist our constant and faith
ful support, and we charge every nominee of this
convention to cooperate in every honorable way to
secure pure government and to bring offenders to
Justice. ^ • ,
Third—The people should nominate for the Leg
islature only men who are pledged by their known
charaeter to provide and sustain measures nitride
ted to rescue anti preserve tjle State from every
form of Orreptlon and nuilatimlnistratibtif
Fourth—The guilty offenders In the management
of the canals should' be brought to speedy punish
ment, and the executive, Under the powers already
conferred on him, should 'suspend all 'oflicers who
have violated law. •
Fifth—The Republican party has proved itself,
from the beginning, the party of practical reform
and sound economy In the affairs of this State; it
has, within the past four, years, provided for the
payment of twenty millions of the public debt, and
practitwlly extinguished the general State indebt
edness, and by this action has made. it certain that
the tax for the next year will be reduced abort are
millidps of dollars, I
Sixth—Further Inflatio n of the currency under
any pretense whatever would be a public calamity.
, The interests of common industry and the com
mon welfare demand the rpeediest return to specie
payment. _
Seventh—The whole sohject of taxation ought to
be carefully and wisely revised, to the end that_
Its burdens should beat equ ally
upon all.
Eighth—Recognizing s conclusive the Presi
dent's public declaration that he is not a candidate
for a renomination, and with the sincerest grati
tude for his patriot ic services, we declare our unit
terable opposition to the bleenott et tatty President
for a third term. '
Ninth.-The flee , puh4 school is the lifework Of
the American Republic: We therefore demand
the Unqualified maintenance of the public school
system and its support by equal taxation. We are
opposed to all sectarian appropriationkand we de.
nounee as a crime against liberty and republican
Institutions as projects for a sectarian 'division of
the school fund of the State.
Tenth—The National Administration, by its
stead fast fidelity to the !principles of commercial
honor, by its opposition to unsound financial pro.
Jests, by its calm avoidance of collision with lots
elgn.powers, by its reliance on justice and season
rather than that force should be the settlement of
disputes, by its arm Thidication of the National
dignity and authority, by rigidly executing the
laws, correcting abuses, punishing offenders and
enforcing retrenchmenti without boastful, ostenta
tious protesion, deserves the gratitude of the Amer
ican people and adds lustre to the services in the
war of the distinguished soldier and patriot who
stands at its head.

Tnz editor of I 'the West Cheeter
Republican, Major E. B. MOORE, thus
disposes of the oft-repeated Demo
cratic assertion that Governor HART
RANFT never voted a Republican tick
et until he voted for himself for Aud
itor Goneral. He says-:
"This charges false. ' Governor
llartranft voted for Douglass in 1860,
and in 1861 entered the army, where
he remained. fighting the battles of
his country until 18 65. In 1864 when
permission had been given the sol
diers in the field from Pennsylvania
to vote, the writ4r of this article at
tended the polls in company with
Gov. Hartianft in front of Petersburg.
The polls were opened within twen
ty yards of the front line of battle,
and in full view
~Ofthe. rebel ememy.
He voted, the . Republican ticket, as
did every one die who voted at those
polls. It was Other an unhealthy
place for Democrats."

" MosioxOm and PERRY VAN

office if LArrou l is elected," is about
the only argnmfnt the STORRS men
make against Mr. Larioit. This silly
falsehood has be en
, contradicted time
and again by Mil the parties interest
ed,a and those who cireulate It know
it is false. Neiihei Ssura nor VAN
FLEET will be retained in the Sheriff's
office. These gentlemen would not
accept a positionunder Mr. LAYTON,

It may, perhaps, be considered tee ely,
in the campaign to forecast'with any el
gree of certainty the result of the State
elections of the present year, .and t i
Presidential and Congressional elections
of UM. It is said, however, that Sena
Ctimettely who a short time since spen t a
few days in the thy! Was quite free -ie, a
pressing, his'., belief that Pennsylva is
would, in the coming election this fail, o
largely Republican, and that- there_ con d
not be the shadow of a, doubt with regard
to the election of the entire Republican
ticket,. • TheProhibitionticket, he thought,
would not be as i termidable as many Lad
been led to antic ipate.- There is, perhar,
no otle better '
able than the Senator to
Welldorrebtly,tff ' the political ittuatiqn.
Well kuown as a close observe of the ebb
and floW of the political tide, and as bein g
'generally correct in his conclusions, ins
predictions may therefore be accepted as
almost' a matter of certainty.
With regard to the• political outlook, , e
believe that the Senator does dot stand
alone. Not only in Pennsylvania, Ilut
throughout the entire country, it is d
mitted by every political observer the a
reaction since the elections of last fall I 1 all
taken place in the public mind in taco of
the Republican party, its policy and i r i .
les. "Our victory came a year oo
soon," is the remark that is being daily
uttered by the prominent members of the
Detimeratic party who are candid.enoligh
to concede the true situation. To those
who will for a moment pause to retl4,
the reasons ter this change o f public -
timent are alnithuit. With the stern
facts staring the people squarely in the
face, that, by their supineness and indif
ference, the reins of government was te
lug allowed to pass into the hands of he
Democracy; to be controlled by the rebel
element of that party, the patriotism) of
the country has again .become aroused.
The gravity of the . situation is becoming
'fully understood as the people see that in
the halls of our National Legislature and
under thr folds of the ' flag that they so
earnestly sought to destroy, will soon as
semble some eighty old rebel officers, s ith
a multitude of claims in their hands for
the loss of slaves and other property by
the war, which, if allowed, i'ould betSuf-
ficient to bankrupt the nation ; this; to-
Bother with their inflation policy 'lnd
many absurd financial theories, is proving
not altogether palatable, and will not I*
endorsed by those who have the fi t 4are
welfare and prosperity of the , cou p at
heart. The peopleare beginning toriun
derstand that the Republican part is
now, as it always has been, the true f end
of the common masses ; 'that it is the hard
money party ; and as predicted, wheri the
proper time arrives will not fail so shw l a
due appreciotion of that understan ing.
In Ohio, carefully computed estimates go,
to show that the Democracy, with their
inflation issues, will be repudiated by that
State by at least forty thousand—a result
that will go far towards placing the Pres
idential contest of the centennial year al
most beyond the possibility of a doubt.
Ruiners with regard to the retirement
of Secretary Delano from the Cabinet
have been revived, and apparently not
:without some reason. It is currently re
ported that the Secretaryship of the lute
riorDepartment, now held by Mr. Delano,
was recently tendered to Ex-Sebator
Sdott of Pennsylvania, who from personal
reasons was compelled to decline MS ac
ceptance.. In looking about for aglees
soy to Mr. Delano the President co uld not
have made choice of a better man,ar it
is 'certainly a matter of regret th at the
business interests of Mr. Scott were such
as to force him to decline the position.
Possessed of sterling integrity, as well
as high i l attainments, lie.would have'
discharged the duties of the office Iwvith
alike honor to himeelf and to the State
whose interests ho so well and so faithful
ly guarded while its RrepresentatiVe , in
the greatemincils of the nation. .
The efforts to induce the.govern;ent
officers to release from their keepin the
Treasury thief Ottman, which, his coal:m.l
' have been' claiming, was illegally seized.
upon at the time of his arrest, have proved
' unavailing. Ottman, it will be remain,
bared, was arrested as' the prnienn.eper
son connected with the late foity ven
thousand - dollar theft . at the ury ;
and consequently, the large amount of
property farad in his possession Waif nu
_mtely taken in.charge by the proper
officers. Shice his incarceration he I has,
through his counsel; made strenuous ef
forts to again get tide property in his con
trol ;.; but, as it appears the entire forty
seven ; thousand dollars went int 4 his
bands the government does not propose,
. underthe .mrcumstances, to surrender its
possession: '. ' '
The mysterious manner in, which this
money disappeared from the Treasury
vaults, it will-also be remembered, was at
the time severely felt by . Treasurer spin
ner, who was, then about retiring from his
Official duties. The loss of ' the money
seemed to haunt the memory- of the". old

we climbed up College Hilt and met our
