which yoti have made in the past, and al
though you have met with anticipated local
defeat you have aided, by your devotion
to principles, and the nomination of good

of this county reduced from 1,800 to 800,
which is.positive evidence that light is
breaking in even in this •Radical Section.

A Temperance Standard.
If a man will . become a candidOte for
office and place himself in the hands of
the RidiMl Clique' of politicians in this
district, to be moulded at their will, and
eau hold whiskey enough so as not to get
so drunk as fa be obliged to lie • down on
the floor 'to' take off his Pants, we can.
prove by the Montriase Republican, tuuk
hannock. , A:pub/icon, Senator Osterhout
and ,the whole pack.of- Ringmasters of
this district that is &strict temperance
man. We` make the above assertion from
incontroiertable facts given us by some
of, themost respectable citisens .of Fyo
ming tonnty, .and we here proclaim
andcballenge contradiction, that if drink
ing Whiskey makes• a- man a temperance
man, then Mr. Drniip„es, the Ring nomi
nee for We Assembly District is a tem
perance man, and Mr... Walker.„ of Nichol
soil, a total abstaiu ho was defeated in
the convention that norm ted Brunges,
in which temperance was one of the is
sues is not a temperance man. Now we
ask the men who advocate temperance
from principle,-if they are ready to, say at
the polls, on Tuesday next, to the rising
generation, - for whom they profess to be
laboring to save from the damning influ
ence of drunkenness, that a man can be
a:member of the temperance organization
and still drink -whiskey? This is a re-
sponsibility you cannot shirk. You must
make a picture at the ballot box, not for
the present only, butibr ivhich -yon will
bo held responsible in the future.—

The vigorous way in which the adtris

of 'PaYniaster Hodge, - who commenced
stealing even' before '"ofir Tllym," com

hunters, After be had been stealing a
year or- so; somebody preferred charges
ugliest. him. The' administration "at

years ago. • After two years more,of steal

J. W. Norton, in. the New York Post
Office, is a defaulter in the sum ..of
3!1,86.,'Nis :deficiency _ has been ac
combating tor some • time, and yet no
notice was taken of the matter by those
in authority. They were too busy in
electioneering fur the -re-nomination of
General Grant to note the abstraction of
a hundred thousand -dollar® from thii
-Post Office funds. At last, however, the
matter unearthed:the culprit named, the
mime exposed, and there we suppose. the
matter will rest. following this, is the
defalcation of a-paymaster of the United

dred and fifty thousand dollars, and notifi
