. The Democratic and Independent
press of the country have been en,.
joying a rich feast .011 scandal over
the sensatibnaL repoitS, from Wash;
ington'in regard to did President;
and Hon. JAMES BLAINE. Their re=
joicing was Of short duration, how.
ever, as au investigation entirely
satisfactory to even the Democratic
party has proven that the rumor's
had their origin in nothing :but
smoke. even ;the Tribune is im..
;pelted to denounce the base slanderi•
ers, and condemns those who have
given currency to them. 'The Presi;:
dent meant exactly what he said;
when he instructed the District At.:
torney, "let no guilty man escaper!
and , the Republican party endorse
the sentiment.
Jr SEEMS that; the rebel' officers
who rule Congress are not to be
isfled even with payment for emanci
pated slaves and 'of war claims 'of
every description. The reimburse;
ments to the Kuklnx of the fmesim,
poSed for outrages on Republicans;
on their own confessions in . the U. S.
Courts, or their conviction by south
is to be demanded. Sena !
for BAYARD recently announced, on
the floor of the United States Sen,
ate, that these claims would be
brought before' Congress for pay,:
ment. Anything the South demandi
will of course be granted by North;
ern Democrats. And BAYARD is a
candidate for the Presidency.
IT Is, announced that new white
lace can be made to appear old and
fashionable by a few hours immersion ,
in strong coffee. This discovery is
not new. • Senator WALLACE demon
strated that theory several years
since while Chairman of the DemO
ciatic State COmtuittee, by expeii;
menting with. naturalization papers.
If the Senator had only taken out a
patent -on his discovery he might
now be reaping A fortune.
by documentary evidence his entire
innocence of the charges trumped
tip against him. 3lorover, the gen
tleman who was said to have made
the allegations denies ever having
even intimated• anything of the kind.
Ir xbw turns out that. Secretary
'pr i ecipiiate resignation
was the ''result of sugzestions from
Mr..CLYMER, chairman of the inves
tigation committee, and if he escapes
impeachment, that gentleman must
bear the responsibility.
THE prospects for the . ' success of
Gov . ..llAnntANrr at Cincinnatti are
brightening. He is admitted on all
hands to be not only fitted fore the
high position, but entirely available: .
If nOminated, he mill certainly be
elected. •

This is about thelseason of the
litical year that independentja
and fault-finding pplitie t littiiixig
croak about ",Rings." Is Iknot efl
then, to atopand enquire*hat pp.,;
Neal "'ring", is? Primarily, ...the
term is used to designate a combina
tion of individuals; for "corrupt pur
poses. If the !field , of nperation is a
political one, the persons composing
the "ring" represent both political
parties, and then it matters but little
to them which side wins—the spoils
are divided in either event. Is there
such a "ring" in this county ? Have
the people ever been defrauded, or,
corrupt practices been carried on by
the '.ring"? Our county is free from
debt. The officers from highest to
lowest have always been men of in
tegrity, and the duties devolving up
on them have been discharged with
fidelity. If we are wrong in this
statement, will those who have such
a holy horror of the " ring " please
tell us where.
What •is usually termed the
0 ring," is any set of men who enter
actively into a political canvass. One
year it will be A and B ; the next
campaign those who c;ied " ring"
the loudest last year may be them
selves denominated the " ring," and
have their names held up at every
four corners by jealous rivals to
frighten voters away from their lead
ership. Now we can conceive of no
reason under heaven why A and B
have not the same right to express
preference for candidates as any oth
er individuals. if they are more ac
tive and influential in advocating the
claims of their favorites, 'so long as
they striye honestly and .use no deceit
it should redound to, in.
stead of being considered a stigma.
They have no power to coerce voters,
and it is hardly complimentary to
the intelligence and culture ,of the i
seven thousand Republican voters in
I3radford county to charge them with
being manipulated by two or. three
men.. Political leaders there always
have been, and probably always will
exist, but in an enlightened, intent
gento-country like ours, the people
will never blindly follow any man or
set of men. History proves that cor
ruptkleaders; be they never so gifted
and brilliant., soon find themselves
With few followers ; and it is• wide of
the truth to say that men only secure
nominations in this county who are
creatures.of the " ring." The people
compose the " ring," and the man or
clique who attempt to thwart
them will , soon learn their , mistake:
. There is one prominent character- ,
Istic of the "ring" men in this coun-'
ty which it would ,be well for fault
finders to imitate, and thatis,./ilyally
,to the principles and nominees of the
r party. With an active, earnest work
er in the party,—it matters .
much he may have opposed the piac
i" n . in upon the ticket of a candidate—
once fairly nominated, he
yells a hearty, undivided support,
and it is seldom that you hear candi-
Idates after the convention grumbling
about the "ring."
At the risk of being misunderstood
Land perhaps severely censured
some of our " readers, we consider
it duty'to ourselves as -well as to
the party to discountenance the dem
agoguism and fault-finding of those
who are ever ready to -criticise the
acts of others but never raise a hand
themselves. If any individual has a
preference in regard to candidates it
is his
,right and duty to express it and
labor with all his might to compass
success, but it is unmanly and 'anti-
Republican When a Majority of the
party express partiality for some one
else for the same poSition, to cry
"ring." Let the voters pay more
attention - to the selection of candi
dates, and study more closely the
motives which actuate the active
members of the party, and we shall
hear less about the " ring."
.1. H. Osman
TILE . Richmond JVhig, a Southern
Democratic paper, representing the
South's feelings and prejudices, in an
article on Democratic candidate for
the President says "What matters i.t,
so we reap the fruits of victory . , wheth-,
er Bayard, Tilden, Thurman,' Han
cock, Hendricks, or Davis succeeds
Grant." The Southern leaders bold
and ekperienced as. they are,.. know
'that they still have the Democratic
Party in their hands, and that they
Shall continue to control it. With
it in power, they are satisfied that
they shall rule the country r and con
duct such a policy as shall be agreea
ble to them, and as shall punish
those who have been against them.
But in the simple fact here involved;
there is a mountain of• suggestion
andLiarning to those who feel. it
would be fatal to the country tohive
the lost cause " revived. •
A RE-AUDIT of the accounts of Lu
zerne county for several' years past
discloses the fact that some very gi
gantic frauds have been committed
by the County Commissioners. The
amount appropriated to their own
use by these Democratic. officials
nearly $20,000. 'Warrants hiie been
issued and two of the corrupt offi
cials arrested. After the-'trial of
TRIM MER and BEAMISH, it seems Like
a farce to attempt the punishment of
any Democrat in " faithful old Lu
zerne." BEAIMISII stole $lO,OOO to
15,000 from the 'school fund in Scran
ton, and only 'escaped conviction
through tampering with the jury.
The Democratic party in the State,
however, in opposition to the protest
of 'some of the Democratic members
and the leading men in the county,
elected him Sergeant-at-Arms of the
House of Representatives. He is
now a delegate to the ,National Con.!
vention, and a prospective candidate.

THE yhilatielphia .7'inte.4-, one of
the ablest; and at
.the'same time vin
dictive of the opposition journals,
makes this frank confession in regard
to the BLAINE slanders :
i • " That Mr. Blaine conclusively
I answered the specific charge of a
I corritt or questionable financial
transaction with the Union Pacific
Railroad Company, relative to the
Little Rock and Fort Smith bonds,
! must be confessed by even the most
I prejudiced of his accusers. The let
ter of Colonel Scott, who was presi
dent of the Union Pacific at the time,
! and Who was cognizant of all such
' transactions by his company, is not
only free from all ambiguity, but is
most frank and' complete in covering
' every point of attack, and it will be
! accepted by affas effectually dispos-,
of that Presidential scandal. The,
equally absurd, charge that Mr.!
Blaine had hastened the death of his
first wife by t( kind t4eatment, was
rather more summarily disposed of
f by the discovery that his first wife is
still alive, without visible signs of
dOmestic infelicity shortening the
- measure of her days ; but both slan- •
ders. concocted in the fertile brain
of Presideniial rivalry, will now
sleep the sleep of death.
THE editor of the Pittston Gazette

reference, in letter to his paper, to
our former able and distinguished

THE bill reducing the President's
salary to $25,000 per annum after
the expiration of GRANT'S term has
been vetoed. The President says it
would be unjust to his'suceessoi, as
he has learned from experience, that
the sum axed is . insufficient to pay
expenses of the executive. If $25,000

years ago, when the wealth and pop

a tithe of what it now is, tbel'res

Murat Halstead of the Cincinnatti ram.;

lengthy interview in 'this city, coneirning
the nomination for President, and the re-.
suit is these threegentleman with IVl,hite
law Reid, of the New York. Tribltne,f
"Dick" Smith, of the Cincinnatti Gazefte, , ,
Carl Schurz, and William Curtis of Thar-:
Cullen Bryant,
and others ince invited a etinfrrence
all those opposed to corruption in both:
political parties to meet in Philadelphia
May :11th.
These managers intend to make this;
conference the ISrelinle to a great mass'
convention in our city on July Fourth,!.
to wind up with a mass meeting in lade-1
penitence Hall.
They argue that there will be morel
people in our city. on that day than ever
assembled in any, city on this continent,
and that the opportunity given them will;
never be repeated.
Carl Schurz was the one to suggest the;
tune and the place. Sant Bowles would
rather have had springfield. Halsted
didn't want it in Cincinnatti, as he hadi
not forgotten the other third party colf
wention held there.. Already friends of
the movement are at work in' our city:
making the necessary - preparations. Thi
convention will be run by what is known
'as the "high-tuned newspaper syndicate.":
Whether all ;hese
.gentlemen and the:
many who will attend the Fourth of July . '
"wind up," can agree upon a ticket is a'
problem difficult of solution.
Bowles wants Chas: Francis Adams for
President, and Hayes of Ohio for Vice: .
President, Halsted, wants Bristow of,
Kentucky and Curtis of NO* York as;
his.ticket. McClure preferS Ilartrtmft of ,
Pennsylvania for President and Hender,
son of Missouri for Vice, as his .choice,'.
Whitelaw Reid wants it Blaine and Brit.::
tow, Deacon' Smith is for Hayes anti 13ri:L
tow; and Curtis and Carl Schurz•are for
any first-class ticket, but admit that the,
last named, or McClures choice would be
the.most available.
.If these gentleman, when they meet in
conference, permit themselves to be run
as easily as they were run by Gratz
Brown 'at Cincinnatti, 1812, when ho
named Greeley- for President, and himself
for the other fellow, they will become the
laughing Stock of the nation.
As they are all Republicans and pur
pose surporting the cincinuatti candi
dates, if they he any body but Blaine,
Morton or Cunkling. my advice is fur them
all to attend the Cincinnatti Convention
in the interest of a compromise ticket
like that of McClure's choice or that: of
Hayes and BriStOW. J. W. P.
