Jeff. Davis and Ills Speech.

Davis in Ins fight to the seaboard
We should Lave helped him out of the
country and supplied him with all the
boats he needed to carry himself and
Lis pluuder anywhere so long as it was
away from our shores. He might still
have been wandering in some fore'gn
land, difguised as an old woman, and
might have taken from the South, b

kindred spirits of both sexes that ho

his caplure the world lost a reconstruct
ed granny and and we gained an cle
pliant. IJy the action of Grecly and
other sentimental grannies, he became
a martyr; was boarded at the public
expense for about two years, and but
fur his hatred of Yankee greenbacks,
we doubt not he would have entered
suit against Uncle Sam long since to
obtain heavy damages for defamation
of character acJ false imprisonment.
By the capture of Surratt we robbed
the Papal government of a poor so'dier

the status of a citizen. Iy catching
Davis, wo prevented an old wouiau
from travelling under an assumed name
and inflicted upou the South a greater
injury than the war itself. Davis up
pears to us like the ghost ol the de
funct Confederacy. Just wheu the
people forget his evil work, he walks
into their midst and fnghtencs every
body from the labor of rebuilding what
he tore down. The men of the South
know him pretty well; they remember
bis ignominious flight from Richmond
when Lee was ficbtinz like a lion to
protect it; his haughty, overbearing
nature, when in authority, and his cra
ven spirit when a captive: and they are
about disgusted with him and bis ante
cedents. But thn women like him, for
come reason or other probably be
cause be tried to pass for one when be
fled; and knowing this, the arch traitor
goet about wiih his blarny, inducing
the women to train their children to
hate the Federal government, and when
they grow to manhood to fight against
it if the oppertunity offers. We bear
of him in Southern schools, at fairs,
before legislatures anywbere and
every bere be can get a word in fur
the lost cause. His last appearance
was before a Catherine of ex rtb-
officers, styling themselves "The South
ern Historical Society," at Montgom
ery White Sulphur Springs, Virginia
This last speech is little better than
treason itself, and if his words have
any effect, they have done incalculable
mischief to the prosperity of the South
It is about time for Davis to subside
The South has paid drarly enougl
for his advice, and the sooner they
give him a free pass to Span or France
or some other place where busybodie
and agitators are wanted, the better it
will be for the peace and prosperity of
the whole country.
Judge Moore is coming to the front
in -Sew Xork as a judge who is not to
be warped from the course of justice by
money considerations. On the 9th
inst., in a charge to the grand jury, he
said it appeared to him to be a public
reproach that a man who steals $5 if
sent to the State prison, while those
who steal $50,000 go free. Whatever
officer has tampered with the public
funds, or been guilty of embezzlement,
ought to be punished. He urged then,
not to allow any personal or political
consideration to deter them from their
Shrkveport, La., has been dread
folly Mourged by yellow fever.
Tbe present epoch in tbe political
history of thia state is distinctly char
acterized by a strong popular senti
ment against the further toleration of
the corrupt practices in legislature,
which bai injured the fair fame of oar
glorious old commonwealth, and which
if suffered to continue, will make her
a "hissing and a by word."Ooe of the
maty strong proofs of the prevalence
of such a sentiment, is tbe stern deter
mination manifested by tbe members
of the constitutional convention, to
hedge about legislation with irou clad
oaths and other safeguards, so if pos
sible to prevent a repetition of tbe
shameful corruptions of past years
Notwithstanding tbe efforts made to
prejudice the public mind against these
measures of reform, there are uner
ring indications of not only a willing
ness, but an anxiety on the part of tbe
people for their adoption, and their be'
ing made part of the fundamental law
of the state. It needs no power of di
vination to tell from what source such
opposition is likely to arise. But
guard legislation as yon may'wbere
here is a will there is a way" to ac
complish the designs of corrupt men
impressed therefore, with the ncces- mote the public welfare and so far as
sity of electing honest representatives their suffrage can accomplish it to se
as the surest guarantee against tbe un- cure wise and honest legislation. The
faithful exercise of delegated power, voters of tbe district may be fully as-
the people Lave resolved to place in
power, only men of well tried char-
acter for integrity. This important
change in public sentiment acquires
greater siniGcance from the fact that
it is not confirmed to any political party
but pervades the entire community,
The people evidently are willing to ig-
nore party differences so far at least as
to accomplish a purpose of such ' para-
mount importance. It is gratifying to
be assured that the nomination of John
Irwin, Jr., as candidate for Senator in
the 2'2ud Senatorial district, will afford
to the voters of this district a full op-
portuuity to assert their determination
to uphold the measures of reform to
which reference has already been made.

and retirine. and his aversion to be

and what are the qualities of heart
and mind, which render him emi-
nently qualified to represent this con
stituency in tbe Senate of Pennsyl
vania. Amongst the citizens of his
own county and the business men
iurouiiout me district there is no
ncid to tell of bis virtues, for to
hem he is well and favorably known;
but there are uo doubt tuan men
who are engaged in the quiet pursuits
of life, with whom be has never been
brouclit in contact cither socially or iu
business relations, to whom he is com-
nap.itiirlc .nrl n.. k .;,i..

known. To such it is due, that through
ih ...ni, ,,f m; i.:
friends, by wlnni be has been placed in
nomination, should make known, the
reason why he has been selected as a
candidate for an office so i.i portant, and
at a time like the present, when good
men are being sought after to fill places
of public trust.
John Irwin, Jr., is a native of Belle-
fonte, and having spent almost the
whole of his life in Centre couutry, tbe
people of that county have had ample
opportunity to know him entirely. His
success in business, and the high posi-
tion he centimes in r.nhli. 00100m r.
, t .
owing to his own exertions, bis untiring
industrv. his clear iudirment nrl fnr
' v o -
sight, and his upright aud consistent
conduct. Laying the foundations of all
his enterprises iu principles of honesty,
good faith and fair dealing, his life has
been a continuation of uninterrupted
success in business, and has resulted in
wiuning fur him that which is better
than riches, a good name. From early
boyhood be has been iu the employ ot
or associated in business with men of
large business experience, gentlemen ot
high-toued morality, and capable of ap
preciating real worth.
In every instance he won and hell
the entire onfidence and the highest
esteem of those with whom he held
such relations. Having been exclu
sively engaged in agriculture and the
manufacture of iron ever since his early
youth, he has gathered a fund of expe
rience and its formation on these and
kindred subjects which enables him fully
to understand the wants and true inter.
e.sts of a people largely engaged in such
pursuits. He knows the right and
knowing he will dare maintain it, for
although modesty is a prominent trait
in his character he has never been known I
10 swerve from the line of duty out of I
fear of offending. To this characters-1
tic, all who know bim must if they will
xpeak the truth bear uniform testimony. I
It is mainly owing to this principle of I
stern integrity which has manifested it
t-elf in all his intercourse with tbe peo- j
pie, that be enjoys the enare and un.
bounded confidence of bis fellow citi- I
zens of all parties and of every circle in
Mr. Irwin has never been a politi
cian, in tbe sense in which that term is
commonly used has never held and
has never soucht for nuhlic office.
Like every other man cf mind he has
opinions and decided opinions, concern,
ing the questions of State and national
policy upon which political parties are
divided. At tbe same time his inde
pendence of mind and character is well
known to all who enjoy his acquaint
ance, v well as his ability to give a
sound reason for tbe faith that is in him.
Bat the quality which peciliarly fiu
him, being a man of bigh intelligent
and of large and varied information, for
the office in which Lc is sought to be
placed, is his thorough appreciation of
the duties belonging to persons occupy
ing positions of publie or private trust.
Ot private trusts he has held many,
some of them of the moat important
and delicate nature, and his friends can
well afford to challenge inquiry into the
faithful, the conscientious and satisfac
tory discharge of every trust committed
to his care. "He that is faithful in lit
tle will be faithful also in much."
We haTe said that be has never been
a politician, in the sense indicated. He
has, however, from conviction, been a
consistent Republican, and has at all
times endeavored to maintain and pro
mote tbe principles belonging to that
party. Being, however, independent
and conservative in his views, and hav
ing stood entirely aloof from participa
tion in the local differences and disa
greements which have at times sprang
up and threatened to divide and distract
the party, be is on this account sure to
draw to bis support the entire strength
of the Republican party and to have tha
support of thoughtful men of the oppo
site party rbo earnestly desire to pro.
surtd that be will be guided and gov
erned solely by a sense of official obli
I gation and that they may safely entrust
to him the interests ot the district and
of the State.
He is possessed of intellect, experi
ence, ittegrity, courage, and every other
qualification requisite to fit any man to
be a representative of an intelligent and
moral constituency, and we earnestly
hope and confidently expect that the
people of tbe district, true to the record
tby have made in tLe past of a deter-
niination to elevate none but fit men to
offices of public trust, will rally to bis
support, aud show by their votes a just
appreciation of real worth. tSdltfontt
