(Subject to decision . of Conference.)
We will send the CAMPAIQN RE ,
PORTER from the Ist of September to
31st of December, for TWENTY
Hon. GEe. LANDON,-..and H.
PALM* of Wilkes 7 Barre, will dis-,
cuss the political issues of the day in
the Court House,lon Monday evening
next. .7 The meeting will convene at
o'clock. All are invited to' attend
and hear these able champions:
We, referred briefly last week t 6
the Republican Convention which
assembled in this *place on the 2.24
inst. In a county like ours, - where
there are so many men fitted for
leaders, it is not at all strange that
the strife for positions on the ticket
'of the dominant party is sometimes,
heated. It would be folly to say that
the result of the convention was en
tirely satisfactory to all who were
candidates before it, or to the. whole
party in the county; but we
. do as
sert, with Out fear of successful con
tradiction, that the -proceedings. of
the convention throughout.were char
acterized by harmony,4lig,nity, and
transparent fairness There was a
conspicuous lack of ordinary._ wire
pulling, unfair combinatiOnS; and
other " tricks of the trade.' The
delegates seemed , intent only on pre
senting a ticket 4 against which no.
reasonable objection could be ',raked.
That they were:successful in ''this a
careful investigation Of the 'candi
dates wilt fully demonstrate, and the
result in November will prove* thor
ough endo'rsement of their judgment.
The proceedings of the ll6use of
Representatives. at Washington dur
ing the past session has, satisfied all
Republicans and many honest'l)emo
cratsl that a sad mistake was made
two years ago when the DemOcratie
party, controlled by its rebel ele
ment, was permitted to gain control
of the lower house of COngreis, and
more than ordinary interest was
manifested in the choice of a 'can
didate for
The selection . of Col. OVERTON with
hearty and entire unanimity, evij
dences the high appreciation in which
he is held by the party. It is 'hardly
necessary for us to call attention to
his past history. His career is part
of the history of the county. He
was born and rear'e - d. in this place.
At an early age lie entered Princeton
College, where he maintained:a high
grade of scholarship and graduated'
in 1856 With high honors, Just in
time to take an active part ",in the i ,
first Republican campaign, although
he, had barely attained his majority.
,Two years later be was, admitted-to
the bar of the county, having read
law with Judge. — MEnct.7n. He at
once entered- upon .successful pro-
fessionai career, and succeeded to a
large_s share of the practice :of . his
-father, who- was then just retiring I
front active bUsiness life. In the I
spring of 186 l was appointed
counsei to the Commissioners;' i a • po
sition which had previously been
held by such den as JR(lge EWELL,
J. C. ADAMS, and JUdge, Nikacun. !
Although engrossed in hi& increas
buSiness and with a bright polit
ical future before him, he closed his
office' in. response to the demands of
patriotism and offered his t services
to his imperiled,country. i llis mili
tary record is an honor to the County
and the hundreds of. brave boys who-
left their home comforts for the pri - - , ;
vations and sufferings of camp life
with him. He engaged in - , many
important battles, and was once se,
riously wounded, but like Gen. :GRANT
he was "bound to fight it out on that
line." and remained in the army until
the close of the war. The `history of
.!Pennsylvania. Reseives makes,,
honorable mention of his 'courage,
military skill and bravery. Notwith
standing the fact that it is Col.
OVERTON's fortune to be the son of a
wealthy father, he i thoroughly de4 l
ocratic in his tastes
nd habits and
sympathizes with the genius of our
republican institutions, recognizing
no nobility except that of intellect.
Modest and difident almost to a, fault,
he never boasts of either his Military
record, business success, or p.,litical
popularity. - His candidacy was not'
Of his own seeking, but was ;father

the pallor considered s 'necessity tO
certain success in the canvass. If
the Conference shall endorse that
judgment, defeat is beyond' even a
possibility. Not only in this county
but all through the district there are
hosts of "boys" who knew and ,ad ,
mired the Colonel in the army, who
will esteem it, a privilege to work for
his election. If nominated, Bradford
county will give him 3,000 majority.
From a pecUniary standpoint, 3lr.
OVERTON could gain nothing by hold
ing a seat in Congress, as his legal
business, which het i , resumed in com
pany with N C. ELsnann at the close
of the war, has grown to immense
proportions, and there is scarcely an
important case tried in onr courts , in
which he is not employed, and he
consents to become a candidate only
in deference to the judgment of those
who believe his election would be
advantageous to the best interests of
the country.
The careless supineness through
which this Senatorial district came
to be represented in-the State Senate
by one of the most uncompromising,
bigotted partiians in the Democratic
party, admonished thinking Republi
cans of 'the necessity of remedying
the mistake so far as possible, and
the convention acted with great, wis
dom and discretion in nominating for
WILLIAM T. DAVIES, of this place.
Mr. DAVIES is emphatically a self
made man. Some twenty years ago
he left his rural home in the eastern
part 'Of the county and took up his
residence in Towanda, where he served
several years as Principal of the
Graded School. At the instance of
some, of the leading attorneys he en
tered Judge ELwELL'S office and ap
plied himself with great tenacity to
the reading of law: He was admit
ted to the bar, and although without
influential friends to aid him in se
curing clients, soon found himself
with a lucrative practice. tut his
patriotic instincts led him to.give up
bUsiness, bid adieu to a bride . of only
a few months, and enter heartily into
the service of the Union when the
lamented LINCOLN called for Aroops.
His constitution proving insufficient
forf : the rigors of soldier life, gave
way; and for week's he was "nigh
unto death's door," and on recovery
was. forbidden by his physician to re
turn to the army. But his interest .
in the soldiers and the cause of the
Union was manifested in many ways.
Of Welsh descent, he naturally im
bibed Republican sentiments, and
long before the organization of the
Republican party was a zealous ad
vocate of the principles,Nyhose advo
cacy and maintenance have' achieved
so much for freedom and hlman pro
gress. The Republic* party ihas
always recognized in 'him :a worthy
and able leader, and no citizen of the
district will ever regret his election.
During his term in the State Senate
the interests of his constituents and
the welfare of the Commonwealth
will be zealouslY guarded.
Out of all the men mentioned in
connection, with the office of
perhaps no three better fitted for the'
position could have been selected ,
lion. E. R.-MYER is a tried and faith
ful servant, whose experience as a
legislator. will prov = e of great benefit
to the people not only of this county,
but the whole State. His legislative ,
career has been noted for the fidelity
witlywhich he has guarded the rights
of his constituents and` advocated
general laws calculated to better the
condition and relieve the burderia of
the unfortunate. In every part of
the State lie is looked upon by those
who. know him as one of the most
useful men who has ever had a seat
in the Legislature. Although not
identified with any ltemperance or
ganization, all legislation asked for
by the, friends of temperance has
found in him a consistent, steadfast
advocate. Long before the passage
of the "Local-Option " law he intro
duced a similar bill in the Senate.
The people may implicitly confide -to
his protection their : interests with the
assurance that their confidence will
not be betrayed.
The' colleagues of Mr. MYER--
Capt. JAMES FOSTER, of North To
wanda, and Jou x F.' GILLETT, of
South Creek are men who have
never held official poSition at the
hands of the people of this county,
and yet both possess rare qualifica
tions for the position to which they
have been nominated. Mr. IMEn
is,a young man of excellent bu4ness
capacity,unexceptionable liabitsnd
general information. While quite
young he enlisted in the army, and
by strict attention 'to duty and sol
dierly bearing soon won a Captain's
commission. His reputation as an
upright,;yrudent and capable busi
ness man is good wherever he is
known. 3lodest and retiring in dis
position,r lie is nevertheless fearless
in the advocacy of whiVhc believes
to be right. lie is a pronounced Re
publican., and knows well how to de
fend his faith. lie is not only an
honest man himself, but has brains
sufficient to detect disnonesty and
trickery in otheis. The - :,peOple of
Bradford county williie'Ver have rea
son to regret his election.
Mr. GILLETT is An. old citizen of
South Creek, and
_is universally re
spected; in Western Bradford where
he is well; known. He has been ac
tively engaged in business for many
years, and has An enviable repUtation
among his neighbors. He is a lead
ing member of the Baptist Church,
and bas during the past season given
ground for the erection ftf„ , a church
edifice, beside contributing liberally
toward the structure. lie is'aburt ,

man of

a good soldier, and since the warpas

devoted himself to the
soil. The office for which he has
been nominated is a most important
one, and the selection of a man of
such unimpeachable character afibrds
another gratifying evidence that. the
Republican party means to fill all
offices with good men. "
Fellow-Republicans! the ticket is

and a glorious victory will be' Ours.
It is understood that another suit
growing out of the St. Louis, Alton
and, Terre Haute Railroad litigation
will be begun in a few days against'
Gov. TILDEN in the United States
courts. The new suit will be based
on the old income tax law, .andl will
be brought to recover a large balance
claimed to';:' due the Government
as a tax on Gov. TILDEN'S income
for the year 1862. It is alleged that
in 1863 Goy. TILDEN swore to an in
come for the previous year of $7,118
from all source i liable to taxation.
In - his analer'io the complaint in
equity filed by ;the .St. Louis, 4116 n
and Terre Haute Railroad com'pany,
Gov. TILDEN acknowledgad the re
ceipt of $20,000 as counsel fees in
1862. It is further alleged that; Gov.
TILD'EN received during the same
time stock of the road to a Marge
amount on Ifis individual account, in
addition to $33,000 of the first mort
gagej, bonds and $lB,OOO in rest.
These sums, it is alleged, were not
included by Gov. TILDEN inhis in
come returns for 1862; as required
by law. The suit will be brought to
recover about $50,000. It is Stated
that the papers
,in this suit have been
already prepared. According •
present arrangement' of the
calendar, the case will not be
before Noiember r but, if the
ness of the courts accumulates
great extent, a special trial terr
be held in October. In that e
is asserted that the suit will be
in that month.
