Alabamaroeracy has been try
ing t o o carry out ncoctt's desire for a
L ,
"full vote."
HANCOCK was a jzikad 'soldier, but is
that any reason why 'rebel Poldiers should
be pensioned, or rebel 4 claims paid?•
WHAT is the good of sending orators or
money to the Southern States? • No mat
ter how many itepublicair i votes may be
polled, they would not beleounted.
Hawcocx evidently is fond of a joke.
There is an immense, amount pf humor in
his "full vote, free ballot, and a fair
count," coming from a Democratic can
didate, whose success depends upon the
bull-dozing, ballot-box stuffing, and
counting methods of a Solid South.
HANCOCK'S failure to repudiate the
free-trade theories of hiS party; and the
efforts of WALLACE, and RANDALL tO de
lade the manufacturers, remind Ili of a
slag we Saw flying once, inscribed "Pots,
Data . .As and the Tariff of '42." Bat the
people are not so easily humbugged now

of February 2, ;1872, and, provided that
body should be composed of 291

made to apisly. first to the Forty-third
'Congreis, which_ began March 4, ,1873.
The same act provided that members of
The. Forty-fifth and of streeeeding Con
gresses should be voted for on the Tues

ou the 25th for Pr4itnont, Ohio,
thenee to Canton, Ohio, 191 attend the
meeting Of the members of ,the. old regi
ment., General Suzamsa and Alde, Gen.
McCoos, will leave on iha folloidng
Tuesday, and join the President at Can
ton, when the party will start for San
Francisco, by the way of St. Louis. From
San Francisco they will visit Oregon,
Kentucky, and then Tuscan, thence to
Santa Fe, returning ea 4 by way of
rado. The absence of the President from
Washington will be two months.
EVEN in Michigan, formerly one of the
Western hot=beds of 'financial heresy,
Greenbackism seems to be lost in the wil
derness.- The " party " exists only in
name, and will scarcely .be heard of in the
pending contest. It is about the same
throughout the West. There are still in
fected spots from Which such political
nondescripts as WEAVER. and Da LA 'MA..
TYR conie,butlhe people are rapidly re
alizing that nothing is to be hoped for
from an allian(•e at this time with such a
political weakness as the so-called Green
back party. In Maine, also, it has prac
tically ceased to exist, having been swal
lowed Up by the Democracy.
. IN times past there wail an accepted
saying "as goes Maine so goes the
Union." But that was before there was
a Solid Sontfi, and the significance of the
result, in the Pine Tree State is somewhat
diminished. particularly since the devel
opinent of such a strong. Greenback ele
ment.: The charm of the rule was brok
en in 1856 when Maine gave HANNIBAL
HAMLIN 20,009 majority, and yet By
cus.nen was 'elected President. The
election this yeaf takes place on the 12th
of September. : The battle is warm ; the
lines closely drawn. The Republicans are
making an animated fight against the Fu
sionists, with every prospect of success.
The Greenback-Democrat coalition can
not poll all the votes of both factious, and
we look confide ntly for a licpublican vic
tory. ,
A,ifirrEtt to the Des Moines Slate Re
glider from a responsible citt;.en, S. A.
JAMES, of Sigourney, gives the- informa;
tion on the authority of an eye-witness,
also a responsible man, that the notorious
Bv.Nomi family, four in number, were
captured soon after themiurder of Colonel
YomtEs. The eye -witness says that the
four were stood up in a row, facing nine
riflemen, and were told their fate ; that
KATE was plucky to the last,„ and called
their captors to "shoot and be d—d,"
and that the four bodies were bitried 'at,
the four,cOrners of - Labette, Wilson, Neo
sho and Montgomery.
The Republican County Conven
tion which assembled at the Court
House, in -this place, on Tuesday
afternoon last, was one of the largest
ever convened in this county, the
large Court' room being filled to its
utmost , capacity by delegates and
spectators. While there was a spir
ited rivalry fOrc sevcral f places on the
ticket, the proceedings of the Con
vention were harmonious throughout.
The ticket nominated is a very strong
one, and will receive the active and
united support-of the Republicans of
the whole county. The re-nomination
of Hon. P. D. MQRROW for Presiden
Judge, 'Hon. E. OVERTON for Con
gress, and Hon. W. T. DAvues, for
the State Senate, by acclamation,
was a compliment to each of the
gentlemen, but no more flattering than
they deserved at the hands of the
Convention, and . one that will be
ratified by the people at the polls in
November. The full proceedings of
the Convention, will be found in
another column. Owing to the
crowded state ofeour columns we are
unable to speak of the ticket at that
length which we desire to, and which
it deserves, but will do so in a sub.
sequent issue.
The resolution of the County Con
vention recommending Mr. GROW'aS
United States Senator to succeed Mr.
WALLAC; passed unanimously, re-.
fleets the sentiments of the Republi
cans of Bpdford. It is not meant
as an emiity compliment, but is the
earnest and hearty voice of our peo
ple. It means what it says, that he
is the choicei of the voters of this
county, who believe the time has
come when- he should be chosen to
represent the State in the United
States Senate. And the Republicans.
of Bradford are not alone in this
feeling. In all quarters of the State
there has been a spontaneodi and
decided expression favoring Mr.
snow's election. He is recognized
as a Republican who has done faith
ful and efficient service for the,party.
He has, in,the campaigns of the past,
struck the key-note which led the
party forward in the support of cor
rect principles to victory at the polls,
His ability is unquestioned, and. his
persOnal and political reputation
without spot br blemish. Endorsed
already, both in Conventions s an&at
the lAllot-box, by a large number of
the stalwart Republican counties of
the State, nothing but a treacher
ous disregard of the expressed will
of the people can prevent his election.
The popUlardepand for his elevation
is already too strong to be disregard
ed, and by the time the Legislature
Shall assemble it will become so man
ifest that he is the choice of so large
fi majority of the Republicans or the
State, that , other aspirants will grace
fully acquiesce An his unanimous

explanation of the fact that Athens

were accorded but:two.
The Chairman explained that each
'election district was entitled to two
,in the Conventi'on, and as
therewere three election districti in

tled to six delegates.

At the conclusion of the balloting
for Representatiyes, W. S. Vimum;
chairman of the. Committee on Reso
lutions; read the following, which
were unanimously. adopted :
We, the Republicans of the county of
Bradford, in Convention assembled do
1. That we reiterate our belief in
and adherence to the fundamental prin
ciples of free government, to protect
'which the Republican party was organized
and the maintainance of which renders its
continued existence a, public necessity.
The United States is a nation and not a
league of independent republics. It is
the duty of that nation to see that every
citizen shall be allowed to vote once, and
only onne l in every national election, and
that thatvote is counted as cast, without .
intimidation or fraud. We,therefore cor
dially approve of the platform adopted at
Chicago by the last National Convention,
and recognize in General Jatries A. Gar
field, for President, and General Chester
A. Arthur, for Vice President, eandidates
eminently qualified. to carry I out those
principles ; we hereby -pledge Ahem our
united support.
2. We anwposed to all the distinctive
doctrines of .the Democratic party. As
declared and practiced during the past
forty years they are the embodiment of
what we hold to be politically vicious and
fundamentally wrong. (lie free trade
principle is equally distructive of the in
dustrial interests of the country and of
Pennsylvania especially, whether advocat
ed by John C, Calhoun in_ Fernando
Whether "illustrated by the teaching"
of Polk and Pierce and Buchanan, or by
the "example" of Davis and Lee' and
Jackson, "the constitutional doctrines
and traditions of a long line of democratic
statesmen" are subversive of free govern
ment and no less dangerous to civil liber
ty, whether expounded and enforced by
Robert E. Lee or Winfield S. Hancock.
3. That the agricultural, oil prOducing,
mining; lumbering and mannfacturing
- interests of this state require protection
from the efforts of dangerous combina
tions, and that such laws should be enact
ed by the General Arsembly of the Com
monwealth as will promote said interests,
both in their dovelopement and the trans
portation of their products to market.
4. The nomination of Hon. Henry
Green, of Northampton, for Judge of the
Supreme Court, and Hon. John A.
Lemon, of Blair, for Auditor General,
-commend themselves to the judgment of
all good citizens. We pledge a full vote
and fair count of all the Republican votes
of Bradford county teward4 their election
in November.
5. The Hon. Galusha A. Grow,- of Sus
quehanna, by his eminent abilities and
long and faithful' public svrvices,"his able
advocacy of sound doctrines, his uniform
and constant support of the equal rights
of all aen, rind his blameless personal and
political life, is a lit representative of the
people of this commonwealth, and would
render him a worthy and acceptable col
league of the pre(tent Republican United
States Senator. Believing that his elec
tion is desired by a large majority of the
Republicans of this county and state, we
hereby instruct our state senator and rep
resentatives to use all honorable means to
secure his nomination and electien to the
United States Senate as a successor of
Hon. William A. Wallace.
6. That the course of Hon. E. Oirerton
as Our representative in Congress, meets
our hearty approval, and we cordially 're
commend him to the district conference
for renomination.
7. We - approve the , conduct of our pres
ent State i Senator and
during.their terms of office ; and especial:.
ly commend their opposition to the Pitts
burg Riot Bill. We are opposed to the
assuming of any liability hicurred by coun
ties or corporations under existing laws,
and therefore instruct, the candidates for
the General Assembly this day nominat
ed, to oppose the passage of any law look
ing to the payment-6f such dahlia by the
State, or ,reimbursink any sums, already
paid for such
8. We cordially :indorse the adminis
tration of PreSident Hayses, believing
that the present unity of action and high
purpose of the Republican party has been
largely promUled by the efforts of himself
and his wise and discreet counsellors.
The reading of the Committee's
report was frequently interrupted by
hearty cheers and applause
At the conclusion , of the reading
of they resolutions, the Convention,

13zo. Wm. CLs, In Harpeei Weekly,
i t
says—' Whene a Republica n speaks of
"the South," e pt to pity or praise it,
bear denounced as an apostle of hate. If
he asks why "the South" should be in-
trusted With,the government, ha is reviled
for shaking ' the bloody shirt. If he ap
peals to*.hietery to show what "the South"
means, and what . the dominance 'of "the
South" portends. ho it, stigmatized as
wickedly sectional. But "the South"
can be no more left out of this campaign
than slavery out -of that of 1860, or the
war from that of 1864, or reconstruction
from that of 1868. The prirruu7 Dared
cmtic allegation is 'that "the South': is
solid for the Democratic candidates, and
WADE HAMPTON pledges its 138 electoral
votes fotkem.., This -is generally con
ceded. -The electoral vote of "the South"
will be cast for them, because the popular
vote will not be cast freely nor counted
fairly. The only way in which the Dem
ocratic party can Succeed ie by obtaining
the 188 votes of "the South" i the usual
southern way, and by picking l ip 47 votes
in "the North." Democratic snixess,
therefore, is the samosa of "tbe South,"
and that fact is the most important in the
canvass. There. is no use in calling each
a - result Democratic, not only . tecause It
has notNng to' do with. Democracy, but
because it is best to call things by their,
right names. - The election of Ilarreocx
would be the control of the government
by "the South." Is it desirable that "the
-Sontl , "' should control the government?
Tug Democratic papers have been pay.,

distressed as to. CAMERON'S health, 'and
apprehensive that CoNn.t.No was "sulk

feeling well about the Chicago noinina-
tions. They have worried unnecessarily
however, and will had all the old-time
leaders of the Republican armies in the
thickest of the fray. Secretary SHERMAN
has put an 'end to tho. ,talk that be was
dissatisfied by making a speech in Wash

Republican leaders who have been so
conveniently shelved by Democratic jour
nals. In place of being lukewarm, they
will be found entirely too positive in sup
port of GARFIELD and ARTHUR, when
the time for active work comes. The fact
that they have waited till the heat of
summer should toe over does not prove in
difference. They are all right.

Dr. John Buchanan, for the; past two
months has been very prominently before
the public in connection with issuing bo
gus medical diplomas to ignorant and in
competent persons. Ile was. under - bail
to appear in Court Tuesday morning, but
failed to appear. The reason given was
that the Doctor had found , relief, in the
waters of the Delaware. The ferry boat
Philadelphia, atone o'clock lin the morn
ing had for a passenger
,the Doctor.
When the boat reached the channel sepa
rating Windmill Island from Ridgway
Park, midway between Philadelphia and
Camden, Buchanan deliberately took off
his coat, and handing it s , to a friend nam es
ed Van Duser accompanying hini, step
ped on the upper rung ora freight truck
and sprang into the water. The tido was
running a string ebb, and although it
was bright moonlight when the boat was
backed, after some little delay, nothing
was to be seen of the Doctor. There is
tome doubt as to the identity of the Doc
tor, or even if ho took the plunge wheth
er it was not a plan to deceive and ena
ble the bogus doctor to find a more, con
genild clime. Van Duser is wanted to
prove that the Doctor really cornmitted
suicide but cannot be found, and parties
in Pittsburg allege that be is concealed in
that city.
_His wife offers a reward of
of $l5O for the recovery of his body, but
the. atera refuse to give him up.

WASIIINGTON, D. C., August 20, 1880.
From the great amount of tell praise
that is now being indulged h by the
Democratic press, one would be inclined
to believe that the Constitution and the
Government were the sole property of the
Democratic party ; that the Democrats
never +committed any election frauds;
that the same party pays the pensions of
Union soldieri; that there never was such
a thing as Southern claims ; thlt there is
not a Confederate Brigadier in Congress;
that the Democrats closed the war and
paid all expenses ; that the Democrats es
tablished our National credit;.that the
Democrats can conduct the Government
on half the money spent by' the Republi
cans ; that the Republican party are bull
dozers ; that the revenue conies from the
Democrats ; that the Democrats passed
the bounty bill ; that the Democrats are
paying the public debt ; that Democrats
made our paper money as good as any
gold money in the- world ; and finally,
that God, the Constitution and the 'DOM
,ocratic party are one and the same thing.
It will, hciwever, 'take a little some
thing more than mere assertions to con
vince the public of all this, and that the
present prosperous condition of the coun
try is due to the Democratic party. The
immense priblic debt with which the
country is burdened, and which is not in
cluded in their catalogue of achievements
is; of course, of itself, a - sufficient answer
as to which party has had the welfare
and the intercsta of the country at heart.
Since the close of the rebellion there his
been paid under the administration of the
Republican party, as abowd t by the books
of the Treasury, something over $195,-
000,000 of the debt created by those who
attempted the destruction of the Govern
Close by the Treasury Department the
Democrats have opened thei r . headquar
ters—have laid out their paste brushes
and pots and spread to the breeze their
grand banner emblazoned with the pic
tures of theii. candidates. While it slow
ly sways in tho, passing breeze to the ad
miration of the ever faithful it has been
suggested that, to make it complete, the
badge of each of their candidates should
have been put upon the canvass. That
of Hancock we believe is knoWn as a clov
er leaf while that of;itfiglish is said to be
the three balls, well known the world
over as the sign of all cent per cent gen
If, as generally supposed, the object of
the Democracy in fixing their
ters in the nearest building that they
could secure to the Treasury Dapittment
is the result , of their eagerness of antici
pation of handling the public funds - after
the fourth of March next, then, it has-been
suggested, the following might also be
appmpriately inscribed as a nihtto on
their banner : "So near and yet so far."
But, neither banner nor sign is requir
ed to indicate to the public the locality of
the beaquarters of the Democracy. The
pools o. tobacco spitting, old "pagers"
and stumps of half burned cigars that lie
scattered in profusion about the premises,
are sufficient and quite as appropriate.
On Saturday last, after the lapse of a
quarter of a century, work was again re
sumed on the Washington Monument.
In the presence of the President, several
Generals, Commockires, - and others less
distinguished, the first stone • was hoisted
to the top of the shaft. The President
and several others present had ready for
the occasion coins stamped with their ini
tials, the day, the month and the year
which were placed by them in the cement.
This done, the stone was fitted into its
place, and the deremony of beginning the
work was as quietly as it was quickly
The work, it is expected; will proceed
slowly, four yearn being the estimated
'Um?, for its completion. When finished
and at the height designated-600 feet—•
it is tontended that it will be the highest ,
structure -with the exceptiOn of the an
cient tower of Babel—ever known in the
history of the World.
The el design is to be strictly fol
lowed in i c ompletion ; although, since
Congress taken the matter in band, :a
great many designs by_ ambitious artists
have been submitted, none of whiekihoir-
ever; : were accepted. The site _of the,
monument, o&the Eastern tanks of the
Potomac—is said to have been selected
by Nash infrton_; and when its proper
height, it will be plainly visible from the
Mount Vernon estate distant to the
South about twenty miles. •

tles and a birton on the end of its
tail.. It came in a close woven can
vas bag and was at once dropped in
to a larue wooden box, with firework
sides and sliding cover, prepared for
the reception of -the venomous rep
tiles. Not having been fed for some
time, it is particularly ferocious,and
its rattle constantly—on the hake
whenever any one approaches or there
is any noise in the room wher .t it is
kept. This monster snake is to be
killed in a day or two for the purpose
of taking a plaster cast of it, which
will be done by A. Zeno Shindler,
artist. The manner •of _killing for
this purpose is - ley putting the ser
pent in a close vessel and admitting
a sponge saturated with chloroform.
This preserves the form so that a
life-like cast can be taken.— Wash

'ANOTHER gold mine of fabulous •

According to thg dispatches, • theLlil- .

tory is built, upon a rock Which is

a pound,. While...there is probably
some exaggeratiOn'iathis statement,
there is little doubt . that the mineral '
wealth of New Mexico is very great.

ON Monday, while Co'Jp's .circus
was parading -in • Winchester;, l'a.,
the keeper of the .cage of hyenas was
•pounced upon4d torn to pieces by the
'infuriated and -treacherous animals.
The keeper, who . was . in the cage at
the titne, had his back slightly turn
ed. towards the' hyenas, and was look
ing at the cheering multitude. The
spectators fell back aghast when they
saw, the whole den of hyenas, stiden
ly pounce upon :the man
,and, throw
ing him to the floor of the cage, I)egin
to mangle him with timir teeth nd
claws. The keeper, whose name as
Drayton,made .a. desperate atte it
to save his life, and, despite his i
cal position, assumed his usual ic(fol
tone of command, but the be: , lsts
maddened- by the' taste of blood i dW
not heed-him'. The people w ho wit
nessed his brave struggle for life were
powerless to help him,- as they feared
that by opening the door of the cage
the hyenas, would pounce upon them.
At length some og, the showmen suc
ceeded in rescuing Drayton, -but -he
was so badly wounded thW, his life
is despaired of. i .
