No' Neutral Ground.
MERE are questions tow before the
people which must be met by every elec
tor. The truth presented by the Holy
Teacher of Christian virtue, "That he
whio is not fer me is against me" 'conies
with.poiritcd force unto the consideration
of every American citizen at this time,
and the future hitory of Republican in
stitutions will approve or condemn his
action in accordance with this just crite
rion. Flatter ours lees as we may that
we can remain neutral, and occupy mid
dle ground between the two contending
political principles now striving for ascen
dency in our country, and relieve our
selves of responsibility, yet future gener
ations, and the future history of our po
litical-condition will hold us to a rigid ac
count for our action to " God and our
country." For the brat time in the histo
ry of our Republic, the question of the
sanctity of• the ballot, the enfranchise
ment of white American citizens, sec
tional "reconciliation" with impartial jul
tics to all men, and the vital necessity of
au immediate everthrow of corrupt rings
and centralized' power which threaten to
engulf the liberties of a free people, and
stifle their power to avert it save by that,
last and terrible necessity, revolution— I
has now become an all-absorbing tissue.
President Grant and the -official rings st
which surround him are responsible for
the present condition of things so far as
their opportunities bare been, and hence
we are left with only one of two alterna
tives, either to sanction it or oppose it,
and the only possible way to oppose it is
to array ovrselres in distinct hostility
against it by performing an imperative
duty, imposed upon every American, that I
of casting our votes at the ballot box.—
The sin of omission of political duties,
is visited by the same penalties as that of
commission. This rule holds as true in
government ob.igations as in moral I
Ms. The Reform movement, conceived in
°the necessities of our condition, born at
Cincinati, and adopted at Baltimore, is
embodied in the leadership of Horace',
Greeley and 13. Gratz Brown, andsaripport- '
ed by a large majority of 'the purest lead-',
ere of both political organizations, plant
ed upon principles-which demand the
'coutmendation of every citizen and which
are admitted to bistmequivocally essential
to the perpetuity of our institntions and
the Union and the prosperity of its sep
arate sections. Now the question nar
rows down to this simple fact. Ulysses
Sr Grant or Horace Greeley is to be the
next President of this nation. President
Grant, notwithstanding his pretensions of
reform in- messages and party platforms
before elections, for political effect, has
been Billy "tried and found wanting."—
Horace Greeley, a man untainted and un
charged with dishoneaty, stands forth to
day, pledged-to the - purest of reform prin•
oples, backed by all the personal acts
possible Or him to perform at this time
to show his undoubted sincerity, One
very marked difference in the men is, that
Grant has been tried, and notwitbstand
in; all his professions of reform, has con
tinued, a rule of corruption in office, and
_tyranny toiard onesectiomand has made
most gigantic strides toward a centraliz
ed aristocracy. Hence, taking the mat
contracted view possible in the premises,
every honest man can see that his reelec
tion will certainly be a Continuation of
, these evils, which will grotr worse instead
of better, whereas the election of Mr.
Greeley presents, if not a certainty, the
strongest probability of a reign of need
ed reform. For we certainly should give
,a candidate for office the same latitude
that criminals have before a court of jos;
tics, And presume him
_innocent until be,
is proven guilty. Every act of Mr. Grtes I
ley thus far proclainn his faithfulness in
the movement, and his masterly ability to
'airy it out should he be called upon by
sip s people co to do, 14 view of these

Know-Nothing Wilson, the radical can
didate for Vice President, made himself
ridiculous before the world by 'his pusil
lanimons attempt to whitewash the in
temperate habits of President Grant, and
admitting " that he drinks too much,"
and expressing the wish " that be would
sign the pledge." Mr. Wilson, after writ
ing one or two letters, clearly saw the au
omaly in which they placed him, and
positively refused to write any more let
ters this campaign, which, as he is a can
didate for office, under the circumstances,
was u wise conclusion. It being danger
ous ground for candidates for Vice Presi
dent or any other male citizens in the rad
ranks to tread upon, there comes now
to the rescue a,!‘gushing"feinale of Roch
ester, Miss Lucy E. Gamey, who has
pumped a little evasion and hypocritical !
cunning out of of those Philadelphia
radicals, who of late have proved them,: j
selves imbued with christianity from the
top of their heads, upward, and from the
soles of their feet downward.
The editor of the Montrose Republican
havine espied this radical temperance egg,
which Miss Lucy has layed, lights upon
it "like a hawk on-i Juno bug." It ap
peared in the Republican last week, purl ,
porting to have been taken from the Roch
ester Democrat. How much of a cackle
this nester may get up among the radical
pullets, we are unable to say, but there is
but cme Radical "rooster" beside the ed
itor of the Republican it seems, (And that
is the Rochester Democrat,) who assumes
paternity over it. Here is Miss Lucy's
specimen :
PRILADELruta, Sept. 25, 1f..72.
MISS LUCY E. GUESSEY, Itocheger, New
your communication in which you say,-
1 . It is commonly reported here that the
PreSident is in the habit of getting stu
pidly drink every day'. I know you are
well acquainted with him, and should be
glad to have the story von.traclicted on
good authority'," l'huve to say, that since
grant became commander of the Ameri
can army, and during his Presidency, I
have haefrequent opportunities of 'seeing
him, at the front, in social interoourse, at
the dinner-table, in the White 'louse, and
elsewhere, and have never sten him "stu
pidly drank," or under the influence-of
liquor in any sense of that phrase. • *
s•s•k s s • *
Now this man, Stuart, whoever he is,
on being set upon by this Miss Lucy, has
dune just what those Philadelphia bank
ers did in respect to the Yerkes affidavits,
by certifying that the foe simile litho
graphic signatures of Yerkes, made by
the printers, were not made by Yerkes,
which any goose knew without their cer
tificates, as it was only the original one in
the hands of Alderman Dougherty, that
Yerkes vote. 110 states that " in all his
social intercourse with Grant, at the din
ner table, at the White louse, and else
where," he " has never seen,liim stupidly
drunk, or under the influence of :liquor
in any sense of that phrase." Now what
does that prove? Simply that he has
never seen Grant when he was so drunk
that he was obliged to lie down to take
off' his "pants," or allow some one else to
do it, nor "in any sense of that phrase,"
tacitly admitting thatbe has seen him in
toxicated with liquor. John B: Gough
said, and it struck us very forcibly at the
time, that some people judged men to be
temperate by the amount they could hold.
If some poor youth, unaccustomed to the
use of liquor, takes a glass or two and is
intoxicated, by it, he is pronounced a
drunkard; while an old whiskey tar,
whosit stomach has been "copier-lined,"
and who can bold a gallon wghout get
ting "stupidly drunk, or in any sense of
that phrase," he'may be called a temper
ate man. Yes, and we find under certain
circumstancte he may be made President,
and his party apologists will certify to his
temperate habits. .
The Rochester Dana:rat, as copied by
the Republican, says that this Grant apol
ogist, George U. Stuart, was "the widely
known philanthropist and organizer of
the Christian Commission" during the
war. We do not know, anything about,
Mr. Stuart's character ns a "Christian or
ganizer," but milt this specimen before
us alone, to judge from, we beline that
honest men will say that party zeal has
led him to act the part of ,a hypocrite in
this caae,'and to attempt to deceive the
people by an artful" dodge," to apologize
, for that in a political leader, which he
would denounce in att,htimblo youth, as
a sin against society and Christianity in'
his own city. The late election shows
every honest man who'loves the sanctity
of the ballot,. and "honesty and carabil
litY" in office, that that sink-hole of polit
jj ical corruption, the city of Philadelphia,
116 Cursed with a full measure of this kind
lof"christian organization." Of what
use is it for ministers of the gospel and
leaders in the sabbath schools of our
c,onntry to proclaim temperance and hon
esty; when, (giving them the full benefit
of charity/ to .12 3' the least, • they, unarit:
tingly, if not knowingly, are so blinded
1 by partisan zeal as to -excuse and distin
-1 guilds. between political, 'corrnption, the
Most damning of all, and common mor-'
ardepravity,-and are adopting the debas
ing.nnixim that " ) The King can do no
wren." Our christianity and politics
both, should teach us "to render unto
Geezer the things which aro Cenzur's, and
unto God, the things that aro God's."—
And there are no per Sons to whom this
precept should apply with greater force
than to those who claim to be the Vice
gerents of Him who taught it. When
party instead of purity governs those who
assume to be our religions us well as po
litical leaders, our religious as well as po
litical institutions will drift on in the tide
of corruption. which is now flowing, until
we shall be finally swallowed up in the
maelstrom of national degretlation. Bnt
let the same qualifications be required of
our political servants that aro demanded
of our domestic; let sin be denounced
with the same severity in " high life"
that it now is in the "common herd ;" let
the Jeffersonian test be applied to appli
cants for offibial preferment—" is he hon
est. is he capable %" and by our votes show
that " none other need apply," and' the
ship of State may again be moored' in the
safe harbor of official purity iu which our
foresathers left it.
Let nobody sink into apathy because in
Pennsylvania we have failed to do what we
'hoped for the general cause. It has oth
er fields iu which it may yet win the day.
Here We may yet make a manly struggle
for it. We do not say that in this State
we can prevail in November against the
mil influences which yet remain uncheck
ed, and are'streugthened by success and
impubity.' But we need not discourage
othersi, who under better auspices
tain the fight. It is beneath the dignity
of manhood for more than three thou
sand democrats of Susquehanna county
to falter and despond in a just cause. Let
us act as men who know their rights, and
knowing, dare maintain them. A mouth,
a week or a day may bring forth new cir
cumstances. But it is not to sluggards
that opportunity offers itself. We must
be ready. prepared, organized, if we ex
pect to take advantage of the ever-ehang
in,, events in human affairs. It is but
four years ago that the Democratic party
standing alone revolutionized the city of
Philadelphia. Ihe times are ripening
for just such another revolution, not on
ly iu that fraud cursed city, but in the
State and nation. All honest men, all
tax-payers, all inhabitants of Susquehan
na county who give intelligent thought
to their own interests, acknowledge the
necessity for it. Last election man y only
meant to postpone it, being willing to sac
rifice the cause of state reform !o their
Presidential preference. Never was tl ere
a better time to put our house, our party,
in order than now—just now, at this very
day and hour. Self-respect forbids us to
take an attitude of submtssion to wrong,
The call of the whole eauntry mouses us
to activity. Let no man say "It is no
use." If we gather in no immediate bar
' vest, there is a sure one awaits us in the
future, if we stand ready to reap it. To
do that we must now, at this very day
and hoar, begin to Organize! Orzanize!

c.37'.1t is truly gratifying to note the
fact that many of the staunch old Dem
ocratic counties of the State increaaed
their majorities at the late election.
Clearfield, the home of es-Senator Bigler'
and Senator Wallace, came up to the
work nobly, and gave the largest majority
ever cast in that connty. Berks, under
the lead of Hon. Meister Clymer 'and
others, added more than 2,000 votes to
her majority of 1371; while Cambria
did better for Buekalew and Hartley
than the did for 31candless last year.
In other portions of the State like results
are observable, which show Mat the
Democratic party is still alive and ready
to make a vi e rons fight against Grant
despotism an fraud in November.
rgr Ho Daniel W. Voorhees says, in
a letter from Terre Bride, dated October
14: • -
Mr. Greeley bastpereenally raised him
self in this canvas a thousand fold in
my estimation. His course has been all
that could be desired, and I believe he

Es-Governor Perry.
The returns of the South Caron
eleetion indicate the cheenng fact that
ex-Governor Arty, the anti-radical nom
inee for Congress in the Fourth District,
is elected. The radical majority in this
district at the last Congrzesional election
was 3,304, and if Mr. ferry is really suc
cessful there is double - reason for congrat
ulation : first that•weare to have for• the
first time since 1860;unliopest man and
a gentleman in Congress from South Car
olina; and second, that as the same caus
es operating in his district Wust have
been at work in the ethos, the disintegra
tion of the radical party throughout the
state has fairly begun. So long as it stood
intact, domineering unfortunate South
Carolina to its remotest corner with un
unbroken negrb majority of 30,000, there
was no chance for such a man as ex• Gov
enter Perry, and vet, of all men, he sho'd
have represented the state, and con d, in
represeting it havo been most acceptable
to the North. Alone, with we believe,
but cue exception, among the public men
of the Palmetto State, he withstood se
cession, and it is vet a remembrance in
many men's minds how dauntlrasly he
championed the cause of the Union at a
time when that sort of an advocacy in
volvtd not alone contumely and • insult,
but the wrenching away of oneself from
ones own people. As the Governor wt..'d
rise to plead even in extrentis against se
cession, the sneer and scowl ran round
the chamber, and more than once upon
adjournment of the convention's daily
session the boss and riff rail' of the galler
ies threw fruit-rinds and nutshells and
other refuse on the one man who forbade
a unanimous secession. On the triumph
of the Union cause it seems us if this man
should here had some recognition of his
devotion, but the reconstruction scheme
of Congress trampled him down in the
mire under the negroes hoof as remorse
lessly as it did General Wade Hampton.

The Prestdenttat Contest Is Not Lost
Money, unworthy influences, and the
corrupt use of official patronage will un
doubtedly enable the government to turn
the scale in closely-balanced districts, but
there will always remain enough of hon
est purpose in the body of the country,
if it be rightly stfrred, to carry the day
in spite of any fraud. For this rtvival
we must now look to the democracy and
not to the liberal republicans alone, fur
they have done more than could have
been expected of them. It will not do
for sullen democrats to say that Greeley.
should not have been forced upon them
as a candidate, fur it is clear that Mr.
Greeley has cut more deeply into the re
publican ranks than couldhave any other
candidate, and they have now but to
support him cordially to reinstate them
selves iu power.
The first thing now for them to do,
therefore, is to take" the bit squarely in
their mouth., and instead of leaving all
the appeals and all the watch words of
the hour to Mr. Greeley, to assume the
lead of the campaign themselves. The
true maxim of the crisis is the one-term
principle, and we warn every man who
loves his c.aantry that, limier the issue,
as it is now made up for the fifth day of
Not ember next we are tb decide whether
this country is to retain its republican
independence or to become a de,potism
under General Grant. Let everybody
bear in mind that the very corner stone
of the liberal republican cause was laid
by Mr. Sumner on the one term princi
ple; Let them also call to mind that
this essential principle was solemnly
adopted by the labot men's convention
at Columbus; and further, be it recol
lected, that it received its final sanction
from the dehmeraticliarty at the Balti
more convention. These declarations,
which are in historical accord with the
appeals of Jackson, Jefferson, Clay and
the most distinguished fathers of the re
public, find, now, their only opposition
front the acts of men who have bound
themselves slavishly to the fortunes of
Ulysses Grant-114es Spirit of Um

One declination by letter, two by tele
graph and ofie:to the Committee itself,
ought to be enough to squelch the most
importune schemers; but the pesky fel

turn fur the - free passes and the money
which was given to them ; They announce
th4intention lof running O'Conor in
spite of his four declinations. It will be
done :for the solo : purpose of helping

It is not even denied, that the parti

The unparalleled registration in Phila
delphia carries its own °ride= of in
tended wrong. .
Prominent men in the dominant party j
openly . -boasted of these contemplated 1
frauds in advance, and defied prevention.
Emboldened by success, the crime that'
Mtge was worked in secrecy is now openly
perpetrated, and publicly; beralded as a '
stroke of genius by,its perpetrators.
Yellow-countrymen, you are insniting
ly asked by those who have so successfully
worOd this iniquity. "What are you
going to du•about it 'r" The answer re
mains with you. • Be not deluded with
the response that both parties are alike
guilty. This is the weak erasion of the
enemy_ Let villainy such as indicated be
erushtd,whoever may stiffer. Let no one
for a moment believe that the Liberal
Republicans participated in these acts of
violence against an honest election. Ev
ery suggestion of such nature was con,
deluged, and so far as known such - acts
were in no case attempted. The Liber
al Republicans party was organized to re
sits this very abuse, not to encourage it.
Fellow-countrymen, the Ority of the
ballot-box must be tkfetled, or dangers
the most momentous threaten the Re
public. 'rite ballot is the very corner
stone of our national existence. When
that fails, ruin envelopes all. Unbounded
wealth has been the bane of milieus be
fore our tune. Has this disease by which
other States have fallen attacked as at
list in the most vital part, the saucily of
the ballot? Our people will boy iu sub
' mission to an honest election, but who
shall declare • that an Executive chosen
by dishonest means, which a»»uls the
popular will, may comtimnd popular olie-
Metier ? corruption grows with its own
success, and wi may be exptcted, let tliMc
base deeds of the dominant party be re
peated in November, and who shall say
that the, hour may nut be fast approach
ing when some energetic spirit shall
thunder in the willing ear of an outraged
nation that physical resistance to .such
infamy is obedience to God. -

Fellow-countrymen, the renwAy is in
your own hands. Rebuke those uho in
open day so shamelessly bring this dis
grace upon us. Our 'national '
demands your action. The rote is yet to
your hands, and the insult to these three
great Commonwealths may tie avenged.
In spill of the fra u ds perpetrated, we
have carried Indiana, reduced the vote
greatly in Ohio and lost Pennsylvania
only, by startling con Option. The future
is full of promise. Georgia proclaims in
her great majority .that the sulfering
States, in their desire for rrynal rights
before the law, will give 125 electoral
rotes to 114. race Greeley. An honest,
Christuin sympathy in the North will add
to this more titan enongh votes to make
his election sure.. There is every cause
foriencouragcment, and every reason to
hope fur success.
Let there be no laggard now. fle'is
traitor who falters as Wt. combat opens.
Forward along the entire line, and by un
overwhelming v;ctery in November, not
only declare fur .National Reconciliation
and Reform, but at the curve time let the
1-sson be effective and laqing, that man
cannot purchase the office of President,
nor political infamy go unrebultad.
Chairman national Com. Lib. Rtpub.
Grant needs more Paymasters.
Now the Administration is recruiting
with postmasters. 490rding to a des
patch ennui tit ng frilidWash i ngton, "the
expansion of the service' wtll compel the
immediate establishment of "hundreds of
additional post oniees and the appoint
ment of more route-agents, postal pg.
way clerks, ect." This sadden "expan
sion" just previotrr to an election is a
peculiarly favorable incident of the growth
of our postal service, and by comparison
to that of last year its practical . influence
in the canvass may be estimated. Then
the extension of routes was something
over 7,000 miles, and 2,400 new postmas
ters were minim! ; this year the addition
onal length ;a 10;000 miles, with about
3,400 new appointments and an addi
tional expenditure of some $1,500,000.
ft is almost a brigade, each sworn to the
service of Giantism; and coming into
action, as it does, just when the veteran
troops have not exactly shed their blood,
but certainly been bled through campaign
assessments, it will doubtless prove a
.valuable reserve force. 'Thirty-fur bun
dreu new postmasters ought to make
every Grantite put on the smile of. satis-
faction and of hope.
