It • is understood that an unusually large

sals for the work to be done on this rail*ay,
the period for receiving bids having ex-
pired on the 20th. Among these parties
were many gentlemen of large pecuniary
ability and much experience in railway con
struction. This indicates not only the
importance of the work offered for competi-
lion, but is a proof of the confidence enter

bIN AND SEYMOUR-A WORD FOR
We present to our readers, in the letter, of
Gen. Joint A. Drx, one of the most signifi
cant and influential developments of this
canvass. The writer, himself a Democrat,
and the peer of those eminent men whose
leading counsels with that party (n other
days contributed mainly to its great potency
over National affairs, and whose illustrious
names he cited, now occupies the-responsi
ble position of Minister from this Republic
to the Imperial Court of Prance, confided
in by our own government, administered as
it is, so far as parties are concerned, in the
interests of the same Democratic party.
Gen. Dix long since won the perfect confi
dence of his countrymen by the purity of
his unselfish patriotism in all the walks of
public life, and above all, by his splendid
vindicatidn of the Supremacy of the Union
and its laws, whether in coming to the res
cue in 1860 as one of Mr. Bum/. - AN's cab
inet counsellors, or in the four übsequent
years when placed in a 'high ml itary com
mend and upholding that flag for which he
would as freely have given his own life as
he would_ have defended it in the summary
punishment of any traitors who ishould dare
to drag it down.
It is this citizen, a life-time Democrat
of the strictest sect, who now exemplifies
the purity, the sincerity and the elevated
! patriotism : 6f Democracy as understood by
hfin and by those other great men of the f
party in the days of its culminating glory,
by these pregnant words of Warning sent
from over the Atlantic. Twenty-five years
of personal knowledge of HORATIO SEY
MOUR-0-f his character, capacity and fit
ness for public trusts—entitles Gen: Dix,
bearing a generous testimony to the private
virtues of his friend, to admonish his coun
trymen of the illimitable peril of their hon
or, their peace and their free institutions,
which must attend upon a possible election
of Mr. SEYMOUR to the. Presidency. His
warning is conveyed in language so clear, so
manly and so decisive that it must remind
the awakened people of that never-to-be
for i gotten order, "If any man pulls down
the American flag, shoot,him on the spot."
He now implores his countrymen to beware
of entrusting power to a man "who has not
a single qualification for the execution of
that high trust" ; "who is deficient in that
firmness of purpose which, in critical emer
gencies, is the only safeguard against public
calamity" ; "whose election, at this time,
would be one of the greatest calamities that
could'befall our country" ; "whose tergiver
sation is the most humiliating incident in
American politics" ; and who "is only fit
to be the chosen instrument to execute an
act ;of national turpitude." Was ever
stronger language used by indignant.patriot
ism ? Was there ever a nobler orimore elo
quent protest against a National dishonor ?
If there be any -Democrat—and thank
Heaven! we sincerely believe there are
many thousands of such—who, in view of
the past struggle of this Nation for its life,
in view of the too palpably dangerous ten
dency of the new and abominable 'doctrines
interjected into his political creed by men
who are traitors alike to thg Republic and
to the Democracy, awl, in view of the later
developments, as inevitable as they are
alarming, of these treasonable inculculations

tine commotions stands hesitating as
to his duty, the chity of ecery good citizen
in this emergency, we implore all such to
take these words of Jorrx A. Dix, as
thorough a Democrat as ever led the coun
cils of the party, into his own breast and
give them the consideration due to I their
significance and to the high motives and in
disputable influence of the distinguished
writer. Read them, mark and inwardly di-
gest this lesson, and then, if you will, if
you can, deny your voice to your country
or your vote to him whose election is to
bring final and perfect concord upon our
too long distracted land.
FRESH FRUITS OF THE BLAIR
The rebels of Georgia will not restrain
their impatience ; they cannot wait even for
the election of BLAIR. The sympathies of
the Northern Copperheads, the revolutionary
programme of their candidates, and the
absolute surrender of the Democratic patty
to the advocates of another rebellious resist
ance to the laws and Government of tht3
Uni6n, have so fired the rebel heart that the
work' of butchery has been already com
menced, some fifty jcitizens having been
killed or wounded at Camilla, whose only
offense was that, gul l etly and peaceably,
the most of them beiiig unarmed, they were
about to hold a Republican meeting. Free
speech no more suits the Georgia Ku-Klux
than their Northern Democratic friends,
and they have proceeded at once to inaugu
rate the New,,York platform by organizing
a massacre of which the details have been
laid before our readers.
All the circumstances of this affair Were
so atrociously indicative of the murderous
determination of these rebel Democrats to
resist the enforcement of the laws, that, upon
the report of the Federal officer command
ing the district, Gov. BULLOCK urged the
Legislature , to call upon the President for
the intervention of the Federal authority.
The message and its recommendations were
prjmptiy smothered by the rebel majority
in the Legislature, and so the Blair Democ
racy have full sway in Georgia to-day upon
their platform of rebellion and murder.
Can any honest Pennsylvanian, no mat
ter what his political associations, uphold
such a state of things, or excuse in any way
these outrages upon the law ? If he can, let
him harden his heart still more against the
appeals of patriotism and humanity, for he
only sees the beginning of the end which
the infernal spirit of treason, animating the
leaders of his party, is already preparing for
—On our first page we print the pafticu
lars of the riot as received from rebel soUrces,
together with a communication of Governor
BULLOCK on the subject, to the Legislature
of Georgia. The latter furnishes the true
light on the ailitir, and effectually puts at
rest the idea that the sheriff was animated
by any laudable desire to preserve the peace,
in leading the wicked and malicious attack
on a political procession.
PITTSEtItGIi GA ZETTE
ALLEGED PROPERTY IN BONDS.
Bonds are divisible, for the purposes of
this discussion, into two kinds—private and
public. Private bonds are bonds given by,
one or more individuals to one or more of
their fellows; to secure the payment of debts,
on terms agreed upon and recited; public
bonds are 1: onds issued by national, State or
municipal authorities, or by corporations
created by Congressional or legislative en
actments. Are either of these kinds of bonds
property in such-sense as to'render the sums
of money specified in them liable to taxa
tion ? 'This inquiry does not refer to the
justice or expediency of taxing the income
derived from interest on either of these sorts
of bonds; which is a point to be considered
1. Let us consider whether'• private bonds
are property, fairly liable to taxation.
Joux DOE is the owner of a farm, which
he holds for sale, price ten thousand dollars.
RICHARD ROE wants this farm, has not
ready money to give for it, but offers to pay
the pri4 demanded in five equal' annual in
stallmets, with interest, secured by bond
and mortgage. To' this proposition Joi.;
DoE consents, and forthwith makes and de
livers a deed in fee simple, taking a bond
and mort g age as security. Did this transfer
of property, on credit, really duplicate the
property itself? By the drawing of those
legal papers were ten ten thousand dollars'
worth of property transmuted into twenty
thousand dollars' worth? All Democrats
say.yes; all men of business sense say, no.
The farm exists precisely as it did before;
only the ownership of 'it is 'changed. Be
fore tie purchase and sale Joux DOE, paid.
the taxes on it; thence forward RICHARD
ROE has to assume that burden. In other
words the property itself is liable to taxa
tion; h i nt not the evidences of debt growing
out of the transfer of the property. To
tax both the farm and the bond, is simply to
tax the same property twice; and this fact is
so palpable that everybody but idiots and
Democratic orators perceives it at a glance.
Nor is the case essentially_altered where a
loan is made and a bond or note taken as
security. The property consists of the
money wihichis the matter of negotiation.
It belonged to Joux DOE, and, by agree
ment, passed into the ownerahip Of RICH
ARD ROE, DOE executing a written obliga
tion binding him to repay it, with interest.
This obligation, whether note or bond, is
not property, in such sense as to be liable to
taxation. — lt is simply evidence of property
which DoE had, but made over to ROE, and
which' ROE engages to return.
To tax the capital or property represented
in_ evidences of indebtedness, would be
wrong, as stated above, because, identically
the same property would_be taxed twice; and
it would be inexpedient, because no sensible
than would sell on credit, in that case, un
less he was allowed, either in larger price
or higher rate of interest, indemnity for the
taxes he would be compelled to pay. Tax
ing credits; as capital, would necessarily
_so costly that poor men, or
men in even moderate circumstances, could
not make them available.
2. Public bonds involve all the princiPles,
above specified, and more.
Take bonds issued by railway corpora
tions to begiry with. A railway company is
sues proposals for a loan of one million of
dollars, and gets it, giving its mortgage
'bonds as security. The takers of the loan
had the one million dollars in ,cash, which is
property, and made it over to the Company.
What becomes of this money? It goes to Pay
for the right of way, or road bed, or super
structure, or rolling stock, or depots. Here
it is liable to taxation, and is taxed much
higher than the same amountof money in
vested in farming lands. Not satisfied with
this, the Democrats propose to tax the same
property over again by assuming that while
the money actually went into the railway or
its appurtenances it exists Just as absolutely
in the bonds given to secure its ultimate re
imbursement. This is either the stolidest of
ignorance or the most flagrant scoundrel-
ism. Possibly, it is a cross between the two
Now, i:tsider the case of bonds issued
by act of Congress. The Government had
urgent need of money, need so (urgent as
not to be met through the ordinary sources
of revenue. It must borrow. What does
this process signify? Just this, that money,
whichls property, must pass from the cof
fers of the individual owners thereof into the
National Treasury. To talk of this money or
property being in two places at one and the
same time, is to talk, nonsense. It cannot.
be in the hands of the Government and al
so in the hands of the individual lenders.
When the individualr paid over the money,
they parted with the property, - the owner
ship thereof_ resting in the Government.
What the individuals got were evi-
dences of indebtedness; that is, a cer
Whale that they had parted with definite
portions of their property, the Government
had received It and was answerable for its
seturn at a date fixed and on conditions
mutually agreed upon.
But property belonging to government,
no matter bow acquired, is not liable to tux-
ation, and for manifest reasons. The object
of taxation is to raise money' for public pur-
poses. Taxing government property can
not add to the resources of the Treasuty,
but must diminish those resources, so much
as the fees of the assessors and collectors
For government to tax the capital invest
ed in its securities, would be inevitaliy to
raise the rate of interest to its own disad-
vantage; unless it should be prepared to re-
sort to forced loans, alter the manner of the
Chinese and Mexicans; that is, demanding
from particular-persons specific sums of
money, under penalty of imprisonment or
death. In thisdirection, and no other, the
present Democratic policy runs. For no
man, having capital, would lend it to the
government, at six per cent. interest, with
the understanding that it would be taxed six
percent. or even four
3. Doubtless income derived from money
at interest is as properly a subject of taxa-
tion as income derived from any other
source. But, then, the taxation should be
reasonable; not, as in Pennsylvania, taking
all the interest and more too, provided a

man conscientiously makes his return to the
assessor. Such taxation virtually takes the
whole sum invested, and clutches at what
ever a man has besides. It is not taxation,
in any proper sense of that term, but bald
and infamous confiscation.
Income from National, State, municipal
and corporate securities is taxable for gov
ernment purposes, just as income from farm
ing, manufacturing, merchandizing, or any
io..lter employment, is taxable. It is not
my taxable, but is actually taxed, and for
ational, State, County and all other pur
oses. Democratic orators and newspapers
nstantly assert the contrary. Some of
ahem may be so ignorant as to believe what
/they affirm on this head. If so, their wiser
associates ought to teach them better. As
no Democratic efforts are made for their in
struction, and as no other Democratic in
culcations are Beard or printed, we infer
that the settled purpose on that side is to
create a popular belief in an unadulterated

TWO CITIES, AND THEIR INFLU..
From an interestine and instructive arti
'-ele in Lippincott's Magazine, we gather some
deductions which are not without an irrt
'portant bearing upou current politics.
Ist. Applying the same ratio of increase
in the total population of Pennsylvania,
since 1860, which was manifested in the
census returns for the . Commonwealth from
1820 to that date, and we should have in
1868 a grand total of 3,659,259 for onr
2d. Taking the average ratio, from 1790
to 1860, of the votes cast to the whole pop
ulation, the per centage has been com
p+tively stationary at 16 6-10 per cent. In
the Presidential years of 1856 - and 1860, this
pei centage rose to 17 7.10 and 17 3-10 re
spectively, the Governor's vote of 1860 be
ing taken as the better, basis, since peculiar
causes in that year operated to diminish very
generally the , aggregate vote of one leading
party for the Presidency.
3d. Applying the,average ratio of 17 5-10
per i cent. to the estimated population of the
State at'this date, and it will give us a total
vote in October or Noveinber, probably
both, of at least 640,000.
4th. Applying in Philadelphia the ra
tio which has been averaged for the ten
years from 1857 to 1868, both inclusive, for
the annual increase in the number of assess
ments, and the result for 1868 would be
about 141,00Q'. The actual vote of '64 and
'66 bore a ratio of 85 and 82 per cent. re
spectively to the assessments of the year,
but averaged only 70 for the whole decade.
Estimated for this year at 80 per cent. we
are led to expect a total of not less than
112,000 votes for Philadelphia next month.
If any disturbing element impairs the ratio
there, it will he fe l lt by One only of the great
sth. While the assessments, in the nature
of things, include in this State many names
not of legal voters in the precinct, yet the
deductions drawn from a comparison of
these lists witn the actual voteslfor a series
of years are found to be so uniform as to
command confidence. In the city of New
York, where the registrations theoretically
state the names of legal voters only, the
average of the vote to the registration for
the gym years from 1860 to 1367 gives a
per tentage of only seventy-two for the
whole period; but for the years 1860, 1864,
1866 and 1867, the average was eighty-five.
Applying the rates of 1867 to the estimated
registration for the year, 130,000, and the
vote of that city 'in November would be
Pith. Our friends in New York say that
they can give, and intend to give, 40,000
votes. In that event, the Democratic ma
jority should not exceed 43,500, or say
45,000 in any event, which the Union vote
in the rest of the ,State would easily over
7th. Friends of the Union in Philadelphia
claim at least 8,000 majority at the October
election, to be- considerably increased the
month after. They should be prepared,
owever, for alarge Increase in the aggro
ate vote, above anticiPated. These
figures also ilmonish our friends, in every
part of th Commonwealth, that the total
vote of '6B may be some 40,000 more than
ever before cast by our people, and to spare
no efforts in assuring themselves that a just
proportion of the increase shall, be repre
sented in our triumphant ballots for HART
RANFT and. CAMPBELL. With a certainty
upon these points, we may rely upon - the
subsequent electoral vote for GRANT and
' Bth. The result may show that this battle,
as well for the Union as for these Btates,has
really been decided by the votes of the two
leading cities. The rural districts are pret
ty sure to take care of themselves and of
the righteous cause : let the Union men o
Philadelphia and New York do - all their
duty, also, and there need be - no apprehen
sions for the result.
SAM. CA.RY'S twin-brother spoke at Read
' ing last week, to the workingmen of that
city. To be sure, Blum PObIRROY hasn't
the, same family name and seems to be less
in favor with the Democratic editors there,
for none of them print his speech or even
alltide to him in their columns, but the family
resemblance to the twin CARY was so marked
as to be conclusive. Any one who saw the
Cincinnati working-man here will swear to
the ielationship, after reading the following
sketch of Blue; as given by the Reading

HAS SUMMER ENFEEBLED YOU!
Nine out of every ten to whom this question is
addressed. if they answer it candidly. will answt r
it in the affirmative. Some inly reply to it from,a
sick bed; others, of a stronger co.ed Ration and
greater powers of endurance, may only experience
a slight lassitude as the consequence of the torrid
season. But some portion of Itoe vitality of all hu
man beings oozes out of them uuder the pressure of

The most genial and wholesome 'tonic that has
ever been offered to man—as_a means' of recruiting
his exhausted strength, and fortifying him against
the attacks of disease—is HOSTETTER'S STOM,
AcH BITTERS. Taken at this season It is a per
fect safeguard against intermlßent fever, bilious
affections, and all the epidemics which follow elate
upon the expiration of the Summer. It is an invig
orant and alterative without any of the drawbacks
which attach to mere ittmu ants, and la the only
preparation, of the kind which a conscientious phy
sician would feel inclined to prescribe far ladies in

There is no doubt whatever that diseases of the
Lungs, or ulcers of whatever sort, on any of the In
terco' organs may be and are frequently cured, and
a complete condition of health established. if the
elaborative functions, of which the stomach Is the
primary and most important one, are restored to a
condition to do the repairing of the human system,
ulcers or sores, weether upon the lunge, the liver,
the kidneys or the bowels, or upon the legs, as la
frequently the case, can be min:e to heal, and a
complete standard of health re-established.
