on Tuesday last, In !demur _Hall.
DANIRL MURAN; of Wpm, was
clioien President, and S. W.-Bucx
and Z. F. WALK= Secretaries.
The list of delegates was called, and
the most of the old stagers who have
eomposell the conventions for the
past ten or fifteen years responded—
many of them are men who Were
been repudiated by the Republicans
and haVe - sought asylumin that refuge
for disappointed malContenfe and
corrupt: men of all classes, the mis
called Democratic party.
Hon. Jos. PowELL and Hon. D.
ROCKWELL were unanimously re
nominated for Crlkrress and State
Senator, when the scramble fir the
other positions begait. An effort was
made to defeat Maj. TERRY with "E.
HERRICK, Jr., Esq.;" but all the elo
quence and honeyed phrases of D'A
OVERTON, one of the delegates from
this borough, failed to accomplish
the object: The Major come out
ahead of both HERRICK and Amu
on the first ballot. At this point Jour;
WILLIS claimed a "foul, „ but was
overruled by the umpire. Capt. AmEs
was not much disappointed, as he ex
pected his army record would operate
against him in a Democratic conven
tion. It Was first decided that TERRY
was the center candidate, brit Mr.
OvErimori thought he saw another
chance for NEB, apd eloquently
pleaded that geographical lines shoald
be ignored. In this he was succe.s.;
ful, and the names of Hiaircx and
AmEs were again placed 14efOre the
convention ; a ballot resultedin favor
of the former by a majority of nearly
two to one, which fully convinced
CHARLEY that Union soldiers stand
a poor show, in a DemoCratic con
Pau.° Pscx, having once been sac
rificed tathe duplicity and trickery of
Maj. TERRY, was "set up" for the same
purpose again without opposition.
Foi4ury Commissioner there was,
considerable strife, foi the reason
that the nominee is elected without
opposition. <Mr. E. P. DECKER, of
Towanda township, who has voted
early and often and worked in season
and out for the party leaders, thought
himself entitled to the position, and,
was promised the supp9rt of Maj.
TERRY and others, but on the second
ballot he was declared defeated by a
young gentleman of this borough
without any political convictionFt
and who scarcely ! knows : himself
which party he trains with. We have
not learned what excuse Maj. TERRY
gives for so basely betraying his
most influential friends by defeating
Mr. DECKER, in the face of a positive
and; oluntary pledge to support him,
and order his laquey, /RA SMITH, to
do the same thing, but he will prob.
ably give HARRY and DAN the excuse
the mouse did the cat : "I was . in
liquor when I made the piomise."
By the way, those who saw theMajoi
after the convention were pre* . ell
satisfied that there was considerab •
liquor in him, as lie swageringly boast
ed that he w the man who was go
inga,,:i to be elec .
We must eo gratulate the Democ
on their good fortune in secur- '
ing men of so much character as D'A
and a few others, representatives of
their party. It adds largely to the
moral tone to see such men take an
interest, and by the time another
Centennial rolls around the little
Jeven thus added to the putrefying
mass may have some effect.
The convention on the whole did

IT BECOMES more evident every
day that the moment the government
is transferred to Democratic hands
a ring of swindlers will begin to
plunder the treasury through the me
dium of fraudulent Southern claims.
For several years Congress has made
an annual appropriation of $6,000 to
pay for the arrangement and exami
nation of the captured rebel archives.
No money was ever appropriated
more wisely, for the discoveries al

The Court House was 'crowded to
overflowing on Monday eveni ng last,
in pursuance of a call for a Republi
can meeting. G. M. BIXBY, Of Wya
!using, was icalled to the cha l k, and
M. Tuasza elected Secretaries. Mr.
BIXBY made a few appropnate re
marks on taking the 'chair, which
were loudly applauded. At the con-:
elusion of the President's Iddress,"
lion. Gro. LANDON was introdu ce d.
It has been a lon g time since Mr.
L. has stood before a Republi can au
dience in this place, but his unlt'ue
cessful hunt for reform outsidet of
the party seems only to have Increas
ed his devotion to the principles of
his early life. l. For nearly twO hours
he held the vast multitude spellbound
by his eloquence and his masterly
arraignment of the Democratic party
for its false pretenses and open con
ruptions. -.31r. L. sees much in the
Republican leaders which he cannot
endorie, but is fully pursuaded that
the best interests of the country de
"eland the continuan of the party
in power. , The speech wss pro
nounced by all, both friend's end op
ponents, one of the ablest and 'most
eloquent ever listened to in Towanda.
Mr. LANDON was Hon.
H. W. PALMER, of Wilkes-Barre,
who only arrived in town at 9 O'clock,
the train having been delayed. He
spoke for an hour in his usual forci
ble and eloquent strain, and vas lis
taned to with the closest attention,
although the hour was late. Ar. B.
has few equals as a speaker, and no
superiors in any respect. We look

The followifig letter from

that several other candidates, claim
that the delegates named were ehotien
in their interest. They truth is, the
Republicans of the county are not so
much attached to any man as' aspir
ants for office collie to think them ;
they are more solicitous for the weal
of the party than the advancement of
personal favorites, , and the hearty
satisfaction expressed with the ' , ticket 'ticket

Mr. HINMAN or any of the othi: un

have been manifested, and we egret

" Mr. TilderOs management of the . ,
canvass leads people to ask ;' Wn
to hive another Buchanan 1' " . t' Bu-'
chanan, they remember, was se. ripe,
and finished statesman, the first of
his time in character, years and exf
perlence, whose administratior was
to 'save the country,' and 'restore
the purity of earlier days.' -Th ar
gument/if that elected Bucliarian are
the arguments the Democrate utie to
elect Tilden. All men know ;:how
disastrous that administration "prov
ed ;• how it threw the country into a
civil war; how it paltered withtrea

the throat, and now this modeljthis
consummate ,statesman President

spect of the country, his patrietism
questioned and this administrition
remembered only for its folly its
weaknese and shame ?' What, there

with the financial question by his
surrender to Hendricks. That statute,

will ask why should Mr. Tildeniiro

pledges upon which our
credit rests, and that, too, befotv we

.PHILADELPUIA, Sept. 5. 7 --The last
races of the :International Regatta
were rowed to-day. The first event
was the- final four-oared heat between
the Thames and Halifax crews:
After turning the flag buoy on the
home stretch, the Condoners were :
leading; Halifax spurted and 'came
alongside, their oar-blades touching
those of the Thames crew. -The lat
ter stopped and claimed-a fOul. Tlie
umpire directed them to pull, again.
They did so, London leading the
way. When the island Hearne in
sight, the Halifax crew steered out
in the stream, but London. pulled in
shore, mtt- it was evi den t ,as they
passed the: end of the. island that
something was wrong with their
steering geer. Halifaxpulled, on
home in 18:5-1, and when -the Lbn
doners came -in it was said their rud-'
der line was broken 'on the port side.
They drew up to the umpire's boat
and claimed the font, end the umpire
gave them the race.
The final Angle scull trial heat came
riext, between Hanlon of Toronto,
aria-Brayley of St. Johns. ; Hanlon
led his opponent all over the course,
and won easily in 2409,.8ra1ey com
ing in at 21:1{4. -
The last race was the final pair
oared contest, between-" Green and
Thomas of London,. and Faulkner
and Regon of, Boston. The:latter
started first ana led the way up to
the mile point, where the _Thames'
men virtually gave up the contest,
apparently tired out. They paddled
over the course however,bnt.Faulk
ner and 'Regan `passed .the winning
line easily in 21:20. '
- The prises won in these races are
for t e irst in the four-pared shell
race, $2,500 ; 'for. the second crew
