Let none of our friends forget the
Republican rally to be held ; this evening
at City Hall,. at which Senator Join;
Scorr and other distinguished Speakers
present to address their fellow
citizens on the important issues Of the

commodation of ladies have heen made,
and it is hoped that the meeting will
prove the most encouraging and i:arnor

Joha Franklin was the first actually to

the West, sailed Eastward as far as Cape
Herschell, 4 the Westward Expedition
which resulted fatally, penetrated beyond
that point and so completed the chain of

to achieve the same success and to receive
the reward therefor.

Democ:rati3'are running two candidates
for Senatoi, - both claiming to be regular,
with about equal show: These are Mr.
Buckalew, late United States Senator,
and Mr. Chalfant, the editor of a news
paper at Danville. The Republicans
hare nominated Mr. Whitmoyer, of Co.
umbia county, with what chances, if
any, it is hard to tell at this distance.
The district is composed of Columbia,
Montour, Northumberland and Sullivan
counties, and polled, last year, a Demo.
cratic majority of 3,097.
Mr. Buekaleyr has all the Democratic
newspapers on his side except Mr. Chal
fant's. How far this circumstance may
be taken as an index to popular opinion
in the party, we shall not undertake to
determine. But it is clear that the hind
most of their candidates, if both remain
in the field, must poll a respectable num
ber of votes, or Mr. Whitmoyer will
certainly be defeated. Fortunately, the
Republican majority in the next Senate
will not depend on his election.
IT is a fact worthy of runark that the
Dpmocracy of the western section of the
State, and indeed, we think, of the entire
Commonwealth, have in the present cam
paign thus far failed to hold a single pub
lic meeting, conducting their part of the
canvass in a quiet and undemonstrative
manner. This course .they hope will
win, but it seems that they are particular
ly distrustful' of the people, since no open
avowal of their policy or principles dare
be made. The simple truth is that they
are ashamed to be found occupying the
same old positions in which they have so
often been stormed and defeated, and from
which they have never dared to make a
progressive step. Their silent campaign,
with its mysterious dark lantern pro
ceedings, certainly presents a striking
contrast - witla the open and fearless course
of the Republicans, who are everywhere
aroused to the impOrtance of the issues in
volved in the canvass, and who are anx
ous to proclaim to the whole world the
principles they have espoused.

these are wholesale rates, and retail
prices, to compensate for handling and
loss by abrasion, with the addition of
profits, must be at least $1 higher, and
perhaps $2. This decline sustains abun

The New York Tribune has no choice
between the opposing tickets in Texas
and Mississippi; and it insists that the
Federal Administration shall indicate
none. Why ? Because that journal ap
prehends that the XVth Article would
thereby be endangered. The Tribune
may dismiss its own sense of anxious re
sponsibility in the premises. The people
of those two States have themselves
drawn the lines of discrimination clear
and sharp.
Every Republican in Texas supports
the Davis ticket, and every rebel—no
matter whether he calls himself Democrat
or Conservative—will vote the ticket just'
set in the field by a convention of opposi
tion editors. The Hamilton movement has
gone up; or all that is left of it means noth
ing else but the disruption of the Republi
can party of the State. Does the Tribune
supposethat with the defeat of Davis the
Article would be ratified, except .for the
fact that no , reconstruction is otherwise
possible? It is true that either party, if suc
cessful, must ratify that proposition, but
is it nothing to secure the control of the
State government in sound Republican
hands? And,. shall the President deny
the legitimate influence of the Federal
government against a murderous faction
of which. Gen. Reynolds has exposed the
true character to the world, and which,
in all these loyal States, finds not one to
defend it except the editor of the Tribune}
We have a report that the Administra•
don's avowal of sympathy with the Davis
ticket so stirs up the local pugnacity that
twenty more Republican speakers are to
take the. field 'for the Hamilton , ticket.
Very likely! Drawing lines straight
and sharp, in the midst of so much pre
vious confusion, usually results in un
masking a large. amount of pretension,
and Texan Republicanism will be the
purer and stronger for the weeding which
this report indicates. Whether, the cause

neither party can or will disregard. Gen.
Alcorn, heading the Union ticket, declares
that an opnosition triumph "would sweep

This New 'York journal scolds the
folly of the Administration in rendering
a tardy support, or any support at all, to

that it should have "exacted a pledge,

NEW Tints, October 3. 1369
The Times asserts positively that not
withstanding the dot ial of the fact by
Marshal Barlow, the steamer Alabama,
under command of Captain Ltmeburne,
left the port last Sunday evening for Cuba,
carrying several hundred men and an
extensive supply of munitions for
the Cuban revolutionary army. Her
armament consisted of thirteen pieces
of heavy ordnance, two thousand
Remington rifles, and a large amount of
piOwder and ordnance stores. Exactly
five hundred and thirteen men, among
whom were one hundred and sixty-eight
of the disastrous Whitney expedition,
which was seized at Gardiner's Island
last summer, took passage on her. The
steamer Entrupe has not yet gone to sea.
The brig B. F. Nash was recently sus•
pected of having concealed arms' on
board, but a thorough search proved; it
to be a false report.
The steamer Cuba, formerly the Hor
net, is reported to have been off Barngate
on Thusday last. She was seen about

banked fires, evidently saving coal. She
was steering S. S. E. Her commander,
Captain Higgins, was formerly In the

forsook his command, and become a

WASHINGTON, October 3, 1369.
As comments have been made in the
newspapers affecting the Administration
in connection with the recent gold panic,
and much Interest Is felt on the subject,
the Washington agent of the Associated
Press to-night called upon the Presi
dent to ascertain whether there
was any foundation for the insin
uation, or direct charges against the
administration. The President con
versed with the utmost frankness on the
subject, and said he had not thought
proper to publicly contradict the state
ments concerning himself, as he
had done nothing whatever to
influence the money • market, or
to afford any advantges to pri
vate parties. While in New York he
had many voluntary advisers, but he re
peatedly said to them that the Adminis
tration always held itself in a position to
act as it seemed best, and free to make
any changes of policy for the public
interest. In the course of the conversa
tion he stated that while on the eve of
going to Newport, Jas. Fisk, Jr. came
on board the steamer at New York and
'said to the President that Gould had
sent him down to esk that he would pri
vately give them a little intimation as to
'what the Administration was going to do,
on the financial question. He replied
that the giving of such-information
would not be fair, and asked Fisk wheth
er he did not think so himself. Fisk ad
mitted that it would not be fair. The
President then informed him that when
ever the Administration was going to
change its action or policy, the Secretary
of the Treasury would give notice
through the newspapers, as usual, so
that all might at the same time know
what it was, thus excluding any possible
charge of favoritism. On the morning of
the pauic Secretary Boutw3ll coniniuni
cated the state of affairs in New York,
when the President said: 'Sell five mill
ions gold." The Secretary replied he had
come for the purpose of suggesting the
sale of three millions. The idea of selling
gold thus appearing to be in the
mind of each at the same time. A few
minutes thereafter an order was tele
graphed to New York to sail four millions
gold. It may be repeated that the Presi
dent had informed no one of the purpose
of the administration on financial sub
jects, and the same remark is equally
true of the Secretary of the Treasury.
The correspondence between C. H.
Mallory a Co., owners of the steamspip
Euterpe, and the Secretary of State, is
furnished for publication. Under date of
dew York, October Ist,
.the owners ad
dressed Secretary Fish stating that the
Euterpe bad been chartered to Jose
Pesant, to load with artillery for Havana,
and that they were informed by rumor
that a priveteer is waitingollSandv Hook
to intercept the steamer, and asking in
that event, what protection they would
have from the United States Govern
Secretary Fish, in reply, states that
while a convoy cannot . be given to the
vessel, the United States will, if a vessel
carrying their flag is imolested on- the
high seas, use all their power to punish
the offenders, and to prdvent a repetition
of the offence.

The present position bears resemblance
to that at the close of the last•century.
France seeks to found a liberal demo
cracy at the moment when America
emerges from a gigantic struggle
for the destruction of slavery,
which dishonored the republic. The
methods of France and America are

will place the political sentiments of

In conclusion, the Prince thanked his

et:dying the pulmonary structure, it- is always
pregnant with evil and foreboding of dlsaster.
In no class of maladies should the physician or
the friends and family of the patient be more
seriously forewarned than in those of the lungs,
