initistarithd stand had been erected on the

- tint from Montgomery and North avenue.
The stand was beautifully decorated with
small gaga bearing the words "Grant and
Coif ," Chinese lanterns, and a spledid
transparency of the Second ward Grant
Mob. Smith's band was in attendance and!
before the hdur for opening the meeting, a
large 'concourse of people had assembled

SECRETARIES—W. P. Price ' George

porters of the press.
The Chairman thanked the meeting f r
the honor conferred upon him in select(
him to preside, after which he introduce
Hon. George Wilson, who, addressed t e
meeting at considerable length. He he
that the. Democratic party had always o
Viscid the interests of the workingman of
the country. It bad opposed every meas
ure of the Government to crush ont:; - the
wicked rebellion which it had forced upon
us ' and a ft er the South had been conquer
es into submission, the Democratic party
had opposed all measures adopted for the
reconstruction of those States, in fact. it
was literally an opposition party, opposing
all that was good and advocating all that
was evil. The speaker then discussed the
taxation and financial question respective
ly, in an able manner, after which he
closed with an appeal to all to organize,
and go into the campaign with a determi
The chairman then introduced the vet
eran campaign singer; J. W. Pope, who
sang the "Race to the White House."
The Chairman then introducid His Ex
cellency, John W. Geary, Governor of the
Governor Geary said that it was not his
intention to give an extended exposition of
the questions at issue. The main ques
tions, the reconstruction of the States
lately in rebellion, and the financial ques
tion, bad bath been ably discussed, and he
felt that there were some other subjects
which should be spoken of, and thought it
had as well come from 'him as from any
other source. He thought it his duty to
speak of the great leader of the party,
Gen. Grant, who has done more for his
country than any other living man in the
nation, and refute some of the infamous
charges which have been made against him
lip tho Democracy.
When the_war closed the Democracy as
well as the Republicans gave Grant the
credit of crushing the rebellion. At that
time they claimed him as one of them ;but
since his nomination they have chatiged
wonderfully. He said that Grant was
charged with drunkenness. He had known
Gen. Grant for twenty years; had been with
him on the battle field, met him at
the banquet and had been with him
in Mexico and in California. and had
never seen him taste intoxicating liquors,
nor had ho ever seen him under the influ
ence of liquor. He then spoke of Grant's
education, which he said was certainly su
perior to that of McClelland, whom the
Democracy nominated four years agO. He
knew Grant to be a sober man and a schol
ar, and his record would prove him' such.
His speeches and letters if brief werelalways
to the point.
After speaking in glowing terms of
Schuyler Colfax, to whom he said the De
mocracy objected because be was a tem
perance man, the Governor referred to the
black record of Seymour during the war,
relating many incidents with which he was
personally cognizant, which proved the
New York rioter a traitor to the Govern
The Governor then appealed to the peo
ple to lay aside all local issues until the
dangers which threatened the country were
past. The life of the nation depended upon
the result of the present contest, and liras
of more consequence than any local issue.
He closed by proposing , three cheers for
Grant and Colfax and the State and County
ticket, which was responded to with a will.
Prof. Pope was then loudly called for and
sang the - following original song:
-- THE NEW YORK CONVENTION. _
The Democrats met In old Tammany Hall
On the Fourth of July, with snakes, rebels and all,
And when the Old Devil came up through the floor,
They gave him the welcome, they orb gave before
They tilled up their grasses, a bumper they tossed,
And cheered for their cause which they had not yel
The Devil grew sick, and he turned very pale
From the top of bishorns to the tip of his tail,
And sighed for his throne in New York.
They settled them down and began to dismiss'.
Which man in the crowd then could make the most
Eo they voted for Andy, they voted for (muse,
And rdeneral Hancock put In disgrace
And thus for tome days with much whisky onboard,
The 'nation with slang and she Devil'they bored,
'Til the Devil himself in his wrath did swear
That saints would imagine all ht it was there,
And sighed for his throne in New York.
At last they sat down, overcome with their grog,
Not knowing a, snake from a green-backedfrog;
But they found in the crowd a half-coward, half
And with shouts of success this great monster they
But then came the tug, who to hitch br his side,
Till a 81611'y-eyed serpent quite tipsy they spied.
And then rose the shout for their reymour and Blair
And the Devil disgusted went off in despair,
And sighed for his throne in New York.
The Devil went borne to his fire and smok
And thus to his imps in great trouble he spoke:
"i'm ruined at last by that Copperhead s ate,
Tor Seymour they take and Bike was not imam,
He'll tremble and bide, or Davis he'll flee
or surrender to Great, as did old Rebel L e;
And Blair will go down like a Southern bond
And hide with young gre• nbsek in some ruby pond,
And 1 know I'm mitten this fall."
The President , then introducedW. T.

forcible and eloquent speeches that has
been delivered in this district during the
He said that a'ithough estranger to most
or perhaps all the audience, yet he stood
Upon the broad platform oethe Republican
party which was born in Kansas only a few
years since; the narty which In Its infancy
had matte a free
State and in Its mature
years had saved a nation, and hence he felt
that his interest was in common with his
hearers. The speaker then proceeded. to
discuss the questions at issue in a masterly
maitner, and although he spoke for over an
hour, the audience listened with marked
attention. Re closed with a beautiful
peroration, enjoining upon all to do their

The country owes a debt of gratitude to the

reportersof the 'Republican press.
W. R. Ford, on taking the Chair, intro
dnced W. S. McCune, who entertained the
vest assembly in a speech of a half hour's
length. He argued that at this juncture
the life of the nation is at issue. Human
liberty, national integrity is at issue. The
conflict is still - between freedom and sla
very. He argued the principles of the
present Democracy were the dregs of Eng
lish aristocracy; brought Into the : country
before 176. The Republican' party always
held that the welfare of the, people is the
supreme law of the land. The Southern
aristocracy has always been opposed and
by the waistance of the Northern Democra
cy endeavored to advance their sel
fish ends. To resist their encroach
' merits - the Republican party sprung
Into / evidence with Fremont as the
standard bearer and when defeated,
camlh submitted, but when in 1860
theblicans were successful, when
the er meut was passing from the hands
of the co rapt to, the hands of the pure,
when the sun of their power was setting
theylrebelled and sought to set up an. arts
toeracy with slavery as its corner stone.
Had the Northern Democrats struck hands
with the Republicans to put down the re
bellion, .t would have laded but a few
months. 1 He ably discussed the financial
question,land urged thorough organization.
A campaige Bong was rendered in fine
style by the Central Glee Club.
111. C. Mackrell was next introduced and
entered into a discussion of the public Yee
old of Horatio Seymour, the leaders of the
Democratic party, and the Pendletonian
theory of paying the debt. He argued that
neither bonds nor greenbacks was the is
sue, but that it was a blind to detract the
unthinking from the real issue.
Another song by the Glee Club.
Major A. M. Brown was then introduced.
fre, discussed the characters of the candi
dates of the rietneeracy daring the war.
That Horatio Seymour had been and is a
consistent rebel. That of the delegates of
the South for the New York Convention
not one of them was ever known to be in
sympathy with the Union soldiers,
but were either instrumental or en
couraged their starvation in Southern
prisons. Blair was nominated on ac
count of his,revolutionary utterances.
Teat Mr. Burt is not a representative of
the laboring class, but earned his bread
easier than any other man in our city. The
laboring party should have put on their
ticket a laboring man—not snob an abor
tion on the party as Burtt. The effect of
the inflation of the currency. The speaker
discussed the financial question in all its
points in an able manner. .
After Mr. Brown close:I three cheers were
prolosed and given for the man that secur
ed the nomination; of Colfax. Another
song by the Central Club.
The Ninth ward Club wkle on their way

Second str eet, the remains having been
brought frbm Harrisburg Monday evening.
The deceased was a member of the Typo
graphical Union of this city, which, pur
suant to a resolution adopted at a special
meeting held Monday evening, attended
the funeral in a body.
_ The Harrisburg-Patriot of Monday con
tains the following relative to the death of
Few men of so modest and retiring a
disposition as the late U. H. Myers, who
was so sud enly removed from amorist us
by death, o Friday I night lag, poSsessed
so many si cere frientis as that gentleman.
This was pparent to all who visited his
late reside ce to see his remains on yester
day event g. He was widely known and
universal y esteemed. To his employes
I. especiall was he kind and cmsiderate,
and they with all their associates, endeav
ored last vening to render a fitting tribute
to the 111 n who has been to them more of
a friend an a master. A meeting of Ty
pograph 1 Union No. 14 was called and
held in t e office of the Patriot, when •
olutions ere adopted condoling with the
family o t he, deceased in their bereave.
-ment. he following are the resolutions:
~ That we, the printers of Harris
burg, bu ing reverently to the inscrutable
decrees f Divine Providence, profoundly
regret th death of U. H. Myers. He was
a liberal mployer and a just man, whose
demise h entailed , a loss to the craft
which it: ill be hard to replace.
Resolved, That we respectfully tender our
heartfelt syMpathy to the bereaved family
of the deceased, whose sorrow cannot be
too great to be assuaged by Him who has
promised to be a husband to the widow and
a father to the fatherless.
Be.solved, That a copy of these resolu
tions be engro4ted and transmitted to the
family of the deceased, and that they be
published in the daily papers of Harrisburg.
After the adoption of the above resolu
tion the Union adjourned, and the members
to the number of between fifty and sixty,
headed by the 'proprietors of the various
printing establishments:of the city, marched
to the residence of the deceased; where a
beautiful floral wreath, the offering of the
members of the Union, was placed upon the
bosom of the deceased t after which the pro
cession passed, around the" coffin with
mournful tread, their sail faces and down
cast eyes giving evidence of the sincerity
of their regard for the man who wasto them
a friend and benefactor. After withdraw
ing from the presence of the dead, a corn?
mine() was appointed to escort the remains
to the .depot,lus they were_taken to Pitts
burgh by the Philadelphia express train,
which left at 3:30 A. at. The remains
were followed to the depot by a large num
ber of sorrowing friends, who wilt deeply
feel the loss they have su-tained in the
death of this much lamented gentleman.
A centleman, well known in this city,
and who' „
is perfectly reliable, -has just re
turned from Tennessee, wh re he has seen
and heard much of the doings and effects
of the Ku Klux Klan. Among others, he
told us of the case of a Pennsylvanian there,.
a Mr. Dunlap, of Warren county, Penna.
Mr. Dunlap is a teacher, and taught white
children live days in the week at Shelby
ville, and on Saturdays and Sundays
gathered the colored children of the neigh
borhood together lu the woods, and with
logs ana stones for seats taught them to
read. He had some one hundred and
twenty colored pupils. One night his house
was surrounded by a•body of armed horse
men,so disguised in white and red draper
ies4la th t no feature of either horse or man
coul be recognized. On his refusal to
obey their command to come out, they
burs into his house, i3 seized and stripped
him, tied him to a tre outside, and with a
leather thong gave h m two hundred and
seventy lashes on the bare back. In spite of
the severity of this punishment Mr. Dun
lep recovered and persisted in his horrid
crime of endeavoring to teach ignorant
colored children during his spare hours.
To this persistency he owed the following
letter, which is copied verbatim from the
CILADIBER or DEATH; No. 45 :tux 2,160, i
• July 9, 1868.
Mr: Durti.&r:—By order of M. Gen. of
the K. K. K. I wright you this letter to
notify_you toleave Shelbyville by the 16th
of July 1868 if not we will take you ought
ty you to a stake enci then burn you. to
Mr. Dunlap left, but asserts that he will
return in Septemb.r well armed and ready .
Oar informant is brimfull of incidents of

tom. Coe, Wetberill & Co., Advertising
We are glad to learn that this firm is re
cognized by our community as one of the
most useful institutions, as well as one of
the most prompt, reliable and responsible
business houses of our great city, and that
their ability, energy and sterling integrity
are reaping a just reward in the increasing
amount and importance of their business
transactions. They have always secured
and retained the good will and esteem of
their customers. Between this firm and the
public press of the United States generally
there exists a mutual feeling of interest and
confidence. It is said with truth that not a
sfngle publisher ever twice presented to
this house a bill due for advertising. Many
- publish'ere of this State have informed us
that Messrs. Coe, Wetherill ck Co. have
sent them more business this year than all
their other advertising agents. I
Publishers in all the States find it for
their interest to appOint Messrs. C. W. it
Co., their agents, because by so doing the
amount of their advertising business is
greatly increased and facilitated, and they
run rio risk; for instead of dealing with
firms with whose standing they are unac
quainted, they deal with a single kouse, for
whose honor and responsibility; not only
ourselves, but almost the entire newspaper
press of the country are vouohers. .
The majority - of the coopers of Allegheny
it seems have been on a strike for soate
time past demanding an increase of wages.
Of course those who are out have a jealotu3y
and • hatred to those who still work at the
old prices, and endeavor to ann%y and em
barrass them as much as possible Yester
day afternoon two of the etriters named
Martin Ries and . Christopher Singenfield
entered the shop of Mr. James Hemphill,
near the Union iikating Park, Allegheny,
and endeavored to raise, a row by challeng
ing the men who were at work to tight.
They were very much intoxicated at the
time and did all they could to cause an en
counter, but were unsuccessful, and were
finally ejected by the proprietor, who came
along just about the time they were mak
ing the most noise After putting them
from aboutr - the. premises, : Mr. Hemphill
went to the Mayor's_olllce and made the in
formation against them as stated. War
['rants were issued.

cost of the prosecutor. Shut said he would
not pay the costs, but changed his mind
,when the Alderman informed him that he
would lock him up until they were paid,
and "shelled out" the +,stamps."
