Towanda, Pa., Thi=day, Nov. 30, 1375.
TUE POPELAR VOTE.
Our democratic friends, unmindful
of the great carditial principle for
which they hak•e ever contended, in
this government that the electoral
system was the only equitable oneL
preserving in some degree the equal
rights of the States, now that they
find themselves beaten by a small
majority in the Electoral College,
clamor loudly for TILDEN on the
ground that he has a large l majority
of the pOpplar vote. Let us examine
the question briefly and see what jus
tice there is in their claim.
There have been several coitests
almost as close as the present one,
and we have had more than one mi
nority President .if the popular vote
is the proper criterion. ions Q.
ADAMS became President on a very
small minority of votes. In 1844
PoLK was elected, although there was
a popular vote of 28,000 against him,
and the opposition , made no objection
on that account. In 1848 there was
a majority of 150,000 against the
Whig candidate, and yet Gen. Ter-
Lon was elected. In 1856 JAMES Bu-
NIANATi , was chosen President and
inaugurated without ptotest, although
the popular majority against him was
yver '400,000 In 1860 Mr. LINCOLN
had a majority of 57 in the Electoral
College, and yet thc; popular majority
against him was 350,000. It will
thus be seen that the electoral system
has resulted in the election of men of
both parties heretofote against the
popu'ar majority, and no complaint
has been made..
Now let us look at the question
, another standpoint.. In the
states which were 'loyal during the
rebellion, Gov. HAvEs has a majority
of more than 250,000. No , candid
man will dispute the_ fact that the
mass of Southern people still cling
to their secession views, and only
await the acquisition of power to con
sumate their long cherished idea of
ar. independent, government, with the
restoration of their former rights of
property in hutnan beings. Is it
safer to entrust. the,government in
their keeping than . in the hands of
those who def:nded and preserved it
in the hour of peril ? This is a ques
tion worthy of serious thought. ' -
Still another comparison may ba
made which will not be found preju
dicial to the republican claim that
Xi...HAI:Es. is fairly elected notwith
st,M.linglre has-not, received a major.
itY of the popular vote. I In the
present Congregs twenty-two states
have, democratic maj ,cities in the
Hot*, and fourtean reptiblican fma
joritie,s. In the election of,congreSs
inen,for the' next House tWenty-one
chose a' republican. majority and
fifteen de ocratic. So that if the
election o - 1 4 President devolved upon
the Con ,a
ress chosen :,,at, the the game
election t which Presidential' candi
dates w re
. voted for, the Republican
candidate Would be successful,-
We have ,referred thus, bijiefly to
the various phases of the Presiden
tial question merely., to point out the
inConsistencies of the demoerats,
whose greed for'power seems almost
insatiable, and who seem in — their .
pursuit of it to adopt the theory that
the: " end justifies the Means." We
shall not stop here to argue the ques
tiOn whether the el: ctoral system is
correct or not. It is the law of ,the
the land and has been from - the or
ganization of the gOvernment, and
must be adhered to.
THE DOUBTFUL STATES
Two of the doubtful States have
now completed their canvass and
Show majorities for. HAYE,S, with - -
out throwing out, any of the fraud
ulent 'votes from " bull-doied "
districts. Louisiana will complete
her count in a day or, two," when
a •like result . will be shoWn_
there, and the "long- agony will be"
over," and our Democratic friends
will have time to reflect on the
causes which Nave led to their defeat. ,
They will discover that their in
genious attempt to cover up their
past disloyal record under the- spe
cioils cry, of reform, was a signal
failure,: and that the loyal people
have not 'yet forgotten the loyalty. l
and_ devotion of those who saved the
country"from disruption. ' Four years
more of Republican rule will restore
the languishing interests of the
South, and start them on a Voyagepf
peace and prosperity, which, if lion
estly persevered in by the people of
that unfortunate section, will lead i
them out of all their diflkulties.
WE have become heartily disgusted
with the daily announcement,
other Ineligible , Elector." We do
,not believe the people of any State
'have been fool-hardy enough to select
'men who cannot serve in the electoral

The following is a correct list of the
members of the new Legislature, with
their political Classifications. 'twill
be seen that the Republicans have a
majority of 12 in . the Senate, and 39
in the House, making 51 on Joint
ballot. The Senators elected in the
otld numbered districts, bold :or four
years, and those chosen in the even
numbered districts, hold for two
years. It is notable that of the 25
Senators who hold over for four
years, and who will participate' in
the election of a United States gen.
Itor to succeed . Cameron, 21 are Re
publicans and but 4 are • Democrats.
The new Senate will be rather above
the. aveFage ability of that body, and
the House, with the loss of some 'of
iG best men like Parker, Gunster,
Mitchell and others, wily be an abler
assembly than the last one. Those
marked with a star (»`) 'were mem
bers of the l laSt Legislature, and
those marked with a dagger (t) were
members of previous Legislatures: •

The Dead Letter department of
our postal service is but little Under

yet -in its details it is exceedingly
full of interest, and its importance

the courtesy of James Laurenson,
Esq., (who is the oldest official in
the Post-office Department, except
ing, perhaps, Assistant, Postmaster
General James W. Marshall, these

with it over fOrty years) we are furn

Twelve thousand letters were 're
ceived at the office daily, or 4,000,000
annually. Of these, :J50,000 ' were
uamailuble; half postage, 300,000;
misdirected, 50,000; blank,' .;,000.
$50,00P in money was taken from tile
letters, while the total money value
ot 'cheeks, notes, drafts, etc., was:s7,-
050,000. 204000 packages of various
kinds were received. So thorough is
the syston 'of inquiry instituted that
nine tenths of the money received.
Was reatored, to the rightful owners.
Among the parcels received, and
,which no owners could'be found,
are articles of almost every discrip
tion. some very tine sets of diamond
jewelry, valuable gold watches, neck
laces, ect., furs., shawls, dresses, fans.
shoes photographs, stuffed birds, and
reptiles—and even living reptiles—
figure the collection. A huge liv
ing rattlesnake was recently received
from a;,Western Instate, inclosed in a
perforated •tin box. These articles
are aatalonged and sold from time to
time, after all means are exhausted to
find their rightful owners.
Doubtless in many instance the
senders of these j letters, etc., have
strongly censured the officials of the
Post-offices for their presumed dis
honesty culpable negligence. while
thtir own carelessness are to be
traced their losses and. the disapoint
meirts of those for who the valuables
were intended. We commend to our
readers the figures given hoping that
those who write us may be induced
to exercise more care, both in their
own interest and ours..
offiee,s are almost daily in receipt of
letters inclosing money, or otherwiSe,
yet having no Post-office or County
or State mentioned, and frequently
without signature. •

result, thoughtful Republicans will review
the campaign just e:osed and look over
the battlefield in older to ascertain the .
causes which brought tbeM so near to a
disastrous defeat, and froto which they
were only saved (if they are saved) by the
votes of those colored men iwho 'risked the
loss of employment, the IM;s of life, and
the vengeance of the rifle clubs in order
to serve the party which have t;lem free
dom and the ballot.
On all the issues beiftn-e the country the
It:publican. party occupied the true
ground, and maintained a consistent,
straightforward course from the beginning :
to the end of the campaign; but the issues l
were too few, and the party did notosen
py ground enough to obtain an- arileut
support of the moral and religious ele
ments of society, Possibly it might bare
succeeded better at this time by adopting
tile doude-headed, Janus-faced policy of
the Democratic party on the enrrencY
question ; but an honest part ye:lntuit take
that course, and a victory won under such
circumstances is worse thatf a defei.t. The
Democratic partysoughtao obtain control
of the government under false pretenses ;
it became all things to all men, that efer
adventure it might secure votes ens ugh
to place 'it• in power. Like Makfiannai
:Sioore's "Veiled Prophet;" it preached
a doctrine to please every sect and locality.

Adams, of Massachusetts, and other lead

the Democrats. These men possessing
unbounded selfishness could not biook the
idea of rotation in office, and', because
their party diCnot,,keek i them constantly
employed in the public service, felt them
selves terribly aggrieved,- and in-t h eir an
