Those of , our Democratic friends
'who had calculated ; on a large gain
for POWELL, in Wayne, as a result of
RepubliCan dissitisfaetion in that
caunty at the nomination of Colonel
OVEIcTON, must now count that por
tion of l their political capital as lost.
Both' the candidates for Congress
visited Wayne county last week. Col.
OvErerox was warmly received by the
leading - Republicans, introduced to a
large number of the best citizens, and
made to feel that_ he 'was among
friends.- Mr. PowiLL conferred with
the notorious DDLMICE., of bank
swindling memory, whom he last
spring aided in appointing as dele
gate to the St. Louis Convention,
and with the Democratic local can
didates. But he found them able to
give him very little consolation. The
Democracy were in a shocking snail
with :regard to their legislative ticket,
and were afflicted with bolters,lnde
'pendent tickets, and stump qmndi
dates. Each candidate was trf ing to
crowd the others off the course, and
to secure a change in his own favor.
POWELL'S influence was like anything
but oil on the troubled waters. Each
candidate feared that he was to be sac
rificed, and suspected that POWELL
was secretlfencouraging a Combina=
Mon for that purpose, in order to
I make the field clear and help the con
gressional ticket.' Therefore .1 - ;owzra.
was regarded with coolness and dis-
I trust by his associates on the ticket,
all of whom felt relieved when he left
`town.. The only ones who appeared
cordial toward him were those who
took his money two years ago, and
who still seemed to look upon his
I I pocket-book as "my meat."
If there are any " sore-beads " in
Wayne, we should naturally expect
their to be Mr. JADWIN, who was Col.
GYEILTON's competitor before the con
ference, and Judge WILSON, editor of
the Honesdale 'Citizen, who led Mr.
JAowiN's conferees, and who was the
only conferee from Wayne tiounty
who did not vote for Col.. OvsaroN
on the final ballot. Yet these 'gen
tlemen rendered Col. OVER.TON every
service in their power during his stay
in the county, and gave everiprobf
that he would receive a hearty sup
port from the Republicans of Wayne.
Mr. JADWIN was especially ,cordial in
his attentions and assistance, accom-
partying Col. OVERTON to various
1;calities in Wayne anti Susquehanna
counties, and exerting all his powers
and influence in behalf of his late
competitor. On Wednesday evening,
Col. OVERTON attended a meeting of
the HAYEs and WHEELER Club, of
Honesdale. After speeches by Ho-
MER GREENE and G. G. 1 1 WALLER,
Esqs., Judge WILSON introduced Col.
OVERTON in the following language:
" Not many years ago—withinthe mem
ory of every man in this room—an armed
'rebellion, in force and magnitude far sur
passing any ever before recorded in the
history of this planet, threatened the over
throw of our government, the destruction
of the nation, and the downfall of free in
stitutions. ow that rebellion was sup
pressed, by what heroic struggle and sac
rifice the nation and government were pre
served, we all remember. And now that
the Union is restored we 'see in our na
tlonal councils the survivers of the rebel
lion, tainted with treason and stained with
loyal blOod, seeking to secure by political
arts and by legislation that dominion over
the country which they failed to gain by
war. I see before me some of the brave
men who stood by the nation in the hour
of peril. To you I introduce a comrade
who shares with you the glory of saving
the republic, and of making it possible to
elect a President -of the Lni ed States;
and you all I introduce a fellow citizen
whom we may well be proud to know. On
the battle fields of the rebellion—at 3lau
asses, at Chantilly, at South Mountain, at
Antietam, at Vicksburg, at Jackson, at
Knoxville, through the Wilderness, a
Spotsylvany, at Cold -Harbor, at Peters
burg—he served his country bravely and
faithfully, and helped to conquer the fifty
Confederate generals, colonels and cap
. tdns who, by the grace -of, the American
people and througii a lenity never before
' shown to conqeured rebels; are now in the
Con , rress of the United States. The peo
ple of this district propose that he shall
'meet these Confederate generals, and col
onels, and captains once more—that he
shall meet them face to face on the floor
of Congress. This soldier—this citizen—
whom we will trust to maintain in the
halls of Congress the principles, which he
maintained so bravely in the field, and for
which he shed his blood at Antietam, is
Col. Euivaan OVERTON.
Col. OVERTON then took the floor
amidst enthusiastic cheering, and de
livered an eloiptent 'address, review
ing the platforms and record of the •
- two parties, Vindicating the claim of
the, Republican party to the confi
de:nee of the country, and exposing
the hollowness of the Democratic
pretenc,?s of reform. He produced
an impression of the most favorable
description, and was frequently in
terrupted by applause. Wayne coun
ty may be depended on to give Col.
OvEnTos its full Republican vete, at
least ; and we shall not be surprised
to see him do even better than this.
POWELL•N WAR RECORD
The opposition newspapers in this
district, with the deSign of counter
acting the enthusiasm Col. OVERTON'S
brilliant war record everywhere
- awakens, speak of Mr. Powr.m.'s "war
record." We would not dispute Mr.
PowELL's loyalty during the rebell
ion, but his "war record" only has an
existence in the fruitful imaginations
of several editors, who would have
denotmcCd him as they did other. sol
diers had he been making a good
" record " in the field during the war.

FRIEND AIXORD: I recently re
ceived a printed circular reflecting
upon the professional character of I
your :candidate for State Senator.
This assault upon Mr. Davies great
ly surprised me. When I became
President Judge of the Bradford
District., Mr. Davies appeared before
me as District Attorne r y, and contin
ued his large and increasing practice
until I left; Bradford county. During
all that. period I never had reason to
doubt Mr. Davies' faithfulnesi to his
clients; and his reputation with the
Bench and Bar was that of an honor
able and faithful lawyer. •
I know Mr. George 11. Welles,
of Wyalusing, and•respect him as a
man : of integrity and high character,
but it seems to me that he has erred
in judgment in his strictures upon
!the conduct of his former counsel.
I trust Mr. Davies will not suffer
by reason of this attielc, upon
for I do not see that he has been
guilty of any professional impropri
ety. Very TiTily Yours

ADDRESS OF THE REPICBLICAN
STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE.
Gen. HOYT, Chairman of `the Re
pnhkiean State Central Committee.
has Issued the following stirring ad
Hdons. REPL"BLICAN STATE COMMIT
TEE, PHILADELPHIA, October 14, 1876.
To the People of Pennsylvania: Eleven
years after the overthrciir of the rebellion
we find the men who forced it upon the
country again preparing to seize the gov
ernment. It is the old Confederate army
united upon the old Confederate heresy.
They have never abandoned their cher
ished idea—they still think with Mr. Til
den that ours is but a dumfedracy and not
a rattan, They have made him their can
didate because he never abancbined the
declared conviction that " the Constituri m
of the United States is only organized rev
olution," and that "any state has the
'right to snap the tie at its pleasure." This
was the heresy that fired the rebel gun
. from Charleston against Sumpter in Mil,
and 'this is the heresy they are remarshal
ing in 1876 to re-establish. To this end
they have crushed out Republican opinion
in every Southern State. To this endthey
have made the white Republican aa out
cast and the black Republican a vassal.
To this eud coercion of Republicans is
their stern discipline, By force their Con
federate heresy is again the cement to
make a solid South.
The Confederate army is far more uni
ted to-day in' the new effort to seize the
government than it was fifteen years ago,
in the mad effort to destroy it.. They arc
still aided by their sympathizers in the.
North. They have concentrated thcstrug
gle upon a single issue—the revolution of
the government. They sink every other
question out of sight, and thus they teach
us our duty. Shall they recover by the
b pilot, conferred upon them. by Republi
can magnanimity, what they lost on the
battle-field in (=llia with the peniile they
'betrayed? We have met and vanquished
their assaulting columns five times since
the first Tuesday of September, IS7G—..in
Vermont; Maine, Colarado, Oh o' and In
diana—gaining ten members of Congress,
electing live Legislatures, including that
of Indiana, which even the rebeK'raiders
from Kentucky were: not able to capture.
DcmocAatie victories in the South are only
1 evidences of Democratic terrorisni over
ltepublicans. Sixty-five thousand' Demo
! eratie majority in Georgiameans sixty-five
thousand rebel shotguns at the
Thr,e, weeks only are left to us to meet
the new crisis forced upon .us by these
men. What will Peiiiorlifertoi'ia do t Our
enemies, confident of successful coercion
; all over the South, have resolved to make
another attack upon this great State. They
leave the South in the safe custody of the
reorganized Confederate army, and they
arc now, as in 1863, marching upon Penn
sylvania in determined array, and their
I rebel yell is already heard within our lim-
I its. Let us be prepared for them. Our
i ; great Commonwealth has always been the
I stronghold of nationality. During the war
she gave her treas:treS of men and money
Ito the cause of her country. Standing he
! tween the two sections, she has always
L been the foe 'of .sec ionalisni. She stood
by Lincoln, Grant, Sherman and Meade
during all the struggles of the war. The
people, believed that when Vicksburg and
Gettysburg fell on the 4th of July, 1863,
the great work of restoration was accom
plished and the rebellion was dead, but.
they are now brought face to face with a
revolution as dangerous as the rebellion
When fifteen States can be more unified
by the shotgun and bludgeon than they
were by armed szeession itself, and when
this combination is enforced by the sup
iaession of free speech, a free ballot and
fee schools, its success must end our re
publican experiment. These men tried
to fight their. way out of the Union at an
incalculable sacrifice of human life, and
now they are trying within the Union, by
new forms of violence and, fraud, to re.-.?s2_
tablish the dogmas supprised• to bo de
stroyed on the battle-field. All they ask
is a 'sufficient contingent - from the free
States to complete their programme. It
is in this Centennial year, when Pennsyl
vania is inviting all the, nations to her hos-.
pitalities, and proffering encouragement
and kindness to leer Southern sister S, that
the Confederates advance upon her bor
ders to make another effort for the heresy
which originated and prolonged the 'rebel-
Pennsylvania demands "peace anti uni
ty,'" but she demands them ;as the result
of 'cheerful obedience to just law, add not
as the sullen submission compelled by the
officers of the government. Pennsylvania
demands industrial and commercial pros
perity; but she knows that these are the
fruits of peaceful and orderly sOciety, based
upon honesty and right, and.cannot grow
out of the anarchy.and chaos threatened
by a solid South. Pennsylvania will tirst
have justice, and then prosperity. Has
the country no road to prosperity but that
which disgraces the scars of the living sol
diers and dishonors the graves of the dead?
Pennsylvania will have purity in public
administration, but she wants none of the
illtisive promises of "reform" made by
Tilden and illustrated by Tweed and the
disciples of Tammany Hall. -
31en of Pennsylvania, upon you rests
the responsibility—yours is the absorbing
oblization. Will you "Hold the Fort?"
By order of the committee.
HER M. Horr, Chairman.
A. WILSO! NonliTS, Secretary.
Reform! Reform! is the ,cry of
the opposition. What have they re
formed ? What promise does the
past history of
,the party give of
genuine reform ?: It was currently
reported by Democrats, and we have
never heard it denied by any one;
that thousand dollars i ,were ex

PowELL, two years ago. Does such

The torch-light procession in himor
of the splendid victory achieved by
the Republicans in the West at the
October elections, on Tuesday even
ing, was one of the grandest demon
strations ever Witnessed in Towanda.
Only a abort notice of the meeting
was published, but the people in town
and vicinity turned out en masse.
The procession organized at 7 o'clock,
under command of Capt. MANvILLE,
assisted by Capt. G. D. STROUD, W.
S. VINCENT, Q. D. KINNEY,' JOHNSON

down Third to State, down State to

where the procession was disbanded.
The procession was headed by the
celebrated Lin4a Band, the second
division by VELIE'S' drum corp., and
the third division by the Ulster and
and Sheshenuin drum corps. A
prominent feature of the procession
was the large number of cavalrymen
who made a very fine appearance
The transparencies were as unique
as they were telling. All along the
line_ the residences of Republicans
were brilliantly and beautifully illu
minated. 'Pr. Renttnt's illumination
was especially noticeable.
After the procession had been dis
banded the Court Rouse'was densely.'
crowded, and Gen. Divo,i was listen

was ever assembled i . for an hour and
a-half., His speech was a fair, im-
partial discussion of the issues of the
day, delive'red in a manner to carry
conviction and win the admiration of
every unprejudiced listener.
The General was followed by Hon.
E. N. FEISBIE and COl. Ch'ERTON in
short speeches, which were well re-
ceived by the large audience.
During the delivery of Gen. DIVEN'S

Mounted on Mettlesome chargers,
were the couriers sent to the out

day and quiet ones of night the pre

room became suddenly transformed
into a studio of art. Yard *upon

manufactured into large and small
transparencies. Grimm-ly stood the
artist in lampblack and oil patiently
awaiting the time when his serviees
should be called for to place upon the
muslin the chaste witticisms of deni

to other counties. Democratic pa

over one hundred of the one hundred

day. Of those which are still idle,
chiefly the more -unimportant mills,
some only need. more water, while
others, mills - which failed, will be
started if satisfactory arrangements
can be made with creditors. (,
All manufacturers do not agree
upon the prospect for cotton mano
farfturing in the future. They do
agree, however, that there are good
grounds for faith and for hope. The
first of these grounds is in the char
acter of the present demand. It in
dicates that print cloths are not
plentiful in the 'market, which shows
that the over-production which hung
so long. and so heavily about the
necks of cotton manufacturers, has
gor.c into consumption. Production
has been greatly lessened during the
past year, while • population has in
creased. From figures presented at
the meeting of the New England
Cotton Manufacturers' Association
last April, it appears that the pro
duction this year of cotton fabrics
other, han printing cloths, consisting
of sheeting, shirting, drills and color
ed, goods, is no more, and probably
less, in proportion to the population
of the-United States, than it was in

ROMANCE ON THE BAIL-011 one

a lady named Ford was a passenger.
She resides in Illinois, — and was on
her way with her two children to the
Centennial. Some three. years ago
she and her husband had a. difficulty,
which resulted in their separation.

he had resided with her, and took up
his abode in New-Orleans. The wife
in the meantime lived in'entire ignor,
ante .of her husband's whereabOuts,
not suppbsing that a re-union would
ever be effected. When the train ar
rived in the depot here the lady
alighted from the car and partook of
some refreshments. When about to
take her place on the car her eyes
met those of a gentleman standing
on the platform whom she. at once
recognized as her husband. The rec
ognition was mutual. l , The memories
'of the happy days of old came back
to both of them, a cordial:re-union
took place in the cars, and they pro
ceeded eastward together. Mr. Ford
had passed the night in this city,
having arrived here on Atlantic the

Every day, as the record of the last Con
gress.ts examined and - overhauled, sourer
astounding development is made showing
how unsafe and: even dangerous it would,
be to restore the Democratic party to pow
er.- We have an exhibit of the purpose of
the ex• Confederate Congress in the titt i
morons bills intredneed by Demoemtt
members, a majority of whom were frore
the South, to take from'tbe Treasury $2,-
503,022,i80. This sum exceeds our pres-'
cut national debt $40,000,000. This is a
specimen of Democratic economy, and is
the entertainment to which the people are
invited, When they consent to' restore the i
Democratic.party to power in this count
try. • Are you ready for it? Do you de
sire to see you.r,national debt increased to
five billions of dollars? This is but a mere
trifle compared with what the Democracy
would do, provided they bad the power.
Such 'a debt would lead directly to repudi,
ation, . national disgrace and dishonor.
From being a nation as we now are tinder ,
Republican rule, having a credit second to
none on the globe, we would become a na
tion of bankrupts and scoundrels, a hiss
ing and a by-word throughout the civil
ized world. '
Any one who will take the trouble to ex
amine the files in the Doriument room in
the Capitol, will find 400 bins proposing
to appropriate the enormous sum which is
stated above ; and it will be borne in mind
that every dollar of the vast sum is to be
expended in the South.
The Secretary of. the Treasury has is
sued another call for the redemption of 5-
20 bonds of 1865. The call is for five mil
lion coupon bonds and five million regis
tered bonds. The interest on these will
cease on and after January 0,18 TI. This
is another indication of the steady pro
gress the Republican administration id
making toward reducing the national debt
and the interest thereon. Elect Hayes
and Wheeler and all our debt w 11 soon be
funded at 31 or 4 per cent. interest. Elect
TilGlen and llendricki and the dt,bt will be
doubled, a nd United States bonds go dOwn
to a level with securities of those Southern
States whose credit is so much crippled
that no one wants their bonds, and when
taken it is at rates that should mantle

REFORMS-TEE PRETENDED AND THE
Mr. Tilden's friends make great boasts
about the " New York State reforms."
Tne facts appear to, be that, ou coming
into power. in 1872, the Republicans
found that Gov. Hoiloratesi administra
tion hail eepleted some funds to make
others whole, and some war debts had
matured. To maintain the State credit.
they were compelled to lay some taxes to
meet current obligations, which they had
not made: They did so, and; perfecting
their payments, made a clean thing of it.
The special tax of course expired, as . it
would have done under any Governor.
The Constitutional Amendments stopped
some big land leaks . also. Tilden - came
in, 1874. All these changes he coolly ar
propriated to himself ! As when

his mere "approval" was a small share.

-Those necessary taxes, ; tinder a Re pub...

after the downfall of Tweed—been we'l

he went to Valparaiso, where he re-' !.

later,.he.made up his mind to dispose'
of his property in Peru, and take up

reached that city at the end of 1848,
and began purchasing real estate.
