JIt'jh M'-Xrill, Esq., Chairman of the
Uni-m HijuihUran Club, Allegheny.
Probably 1 can in do better
way discharge my duty as a member
of the Club, and better promote the
' gm nt cause it is designed to .serve,
than to notice the persistent and un
just attacks which have Imh-ii made,
and are now being made, upon the
character of the Republican candidate
for Governor, John V. Ilartranft.
The charges arc all confined to one
point that of his official connection
with the case of the celebrated
George O. Evans. In no cither re
spect have his worst political enemies
uttcmpicd to tumii-ii bis character.
Thesp charges are more in the form
hi' innuendo, than specific, as far as
they have come under my observation,
v lik h render them more difficult to
iiK'i t. and compel me to use consider
able space ,lmt I will try to make his
lelatious to the Evans' matter so
pla'n that none can hesitate to acquit
liim of all intentional fault.

account between the United States

two millions of dollars. The cas-h ad

i hiinis of the State were audited by J

when, for technical reasons, the
whole batch of State claims except
11 2, w ere marked "suspended and
disallowed"' by the Second Controller
and Third Auditor, to whose depart
ment the settlement belonged. As
there was no doubt of the equity of
tiie State's claims no demand was
made by the United Stales for pay
ment, ami thus the matter rested un
til is(,j, although one or two at
tempts were made by State Treasur

which were unsuccessful. In March,

he had kept the seventy-eight thou

succeeded in collecting 105,051.46

during all this time neither the Audi

and that Ilartranft was charged com

I have volunteered this defence of
Gen. Ilartranft liecause I have the

which I believe has been most un-

mind from the rumors and suspicions
circulated by General Hartranft's per
sonal foes, to refuse him their vote in
Octolier. To disabuse the minds of
such Republicans I have written this
letter. I appeal to them to reconsider
their decision. If thev, on account
of the Kvans matter, neglect to vote
for General Ilartranft they will do
great injustice to an honest man and
a gallant soldier who periled Lis life I
scores of times to save the Union,
and who ha9 served the State faith
fully as Auditor General. If they
want to see Republican principles tri
umph in November, they must vote
for Republican candidates in October.
The loss of the State in OctoWr will
most assuredly endanger the election
of Grant in November. If Grant is
defeated this country will bt' govern

North and South who did all in their

Greeley, nsthe I'resideut of the Dem

a result if he would, anil such is his
fatuity that I do not know that he
would if he could. What such a

A rwrnt traveller in South Ameri
ca. who accomitanied a number of
Juinnas on a tapir hunt, says that,
besides the hunters, their party was
composed mainly of women and boys
of the village, together with a score
or two' of dogs. Of the latter, he
adds: "These dogs were curious
tTeaturcs to look at. A stranger ig
norant of the cumstoms of the Jum
nas, would have been at some loss to
account for the peculiarity of their
color. Such dogs I have never seen
before. Some were of a bright scar
let, others were of yellow, others
blue, others mottled with a variety
of tints. Whai, could it mean ? Rut
I knew well enough. The dogs had
Im-cii dyed. Yes, it is a custom among
many "triles of South American In
dians to dye not only their own bod
ies, but the hairy coats of their dogs
with brilliant coiors, obtained from
vegetable juices, such as the red hui
tic, the yellow roca and the blue of
the white indigo. The light gray,
often white hair of these auimals fa
vors the staining process, and the ef
fect produced pleases the eye of their
savage masters; on my eyes the ef
fect was strange and fantastical. I
could not restrain my laughter when
I first scanned the curs in their fan
ciful coats. Picture to yourself a

In journeying from Pfirt to R.i.-lc,
I saw at a distance of about two hun
dred paces from me a large dog leave
the road and enter the brushwood.
The dog belonging to my companion
native of Alsace, was about to follow
the strange dog, but was recalled by
"No, no, you must leave him alone,

I looked to him for an explanation
of the mystery conveyed in his words.
He then told me that dogs were tra.n
' ed to bring smuggled goods, such as
training the dog was this: He is well
fed at home, and then after awhile led
across the border to the village w here
he is to receive his load. He is shut
up for some days without feed, and
moreover beaten by a man dressed in
the uniform of a custom-house official.
As soon as the dog is set at liberty he
naturally starts for home at a double
quick pace. On the way, that is on
the high-road, which he is pretty sure
to take, people are stationed with
whips, or guns loaded with peas,
which are fired at him until he learns
to take refuge from all strange men in
the brushwood. Two or three such
lessons are sufficient to make the sa
gacious animal comprehend what is
required of him, and he then becomes
the liest contrabandist going. Six
dogs can thus support their master.

earth is two hundred and forty thous
and miles. If a detached rock were
liberated from the attractive power of
that satellite, and, unimpeded by
other influences, following the attrac
tion of the earth by the Bame law of
gravitation which obtains within the
earth's atmosphere,' it would reach us
in that distance in two hours, twenty-
nine minutes and thirty seconds, its
velocity during the last second of its
fall having been at the rate of one
hundred and ninety-four thousand
miles an hour, although when leaving
ttie moon it bad taken matters rather
leisurely, traveling, during the first
second, at the rate of scarcely eleven
miles an hour. Thenceforth, how
ever, it had accelerated its speed in
arithmetical proportion, moving at the
rate of thirty-three miles an hour in
the second second ; of fifty -five miles
an hour in the third second ; of seventy-seven
wiles an hour in the fourth
second ; and so On, until it had at
tained the just mentioned stupendous

Liquors, doclmed, a()ire.l, and sweetened please the

&c, that lead Ihe tippler oo to drunkenaesa and rain,
but are a true Medicine, made from the native roou
and herbs of Califbrou, free from all Alcoholic Stimulants.
They are the Great Wood Purifier and a Life-Kirinf
Principle, a Perfect Renovator and Invigorates-of the
System, carrying otT all poisonous matter and restoring
the blood to a healthy condition, enriching it, refreshing
and invigorating bold mind and body. They art easy
of administration, prompt in their action, certain in their
results, safe and reliable in all forms of disease.
Ho Person can tako thcaa Bitters accord

in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpitation of the
Heart, Intammaiioo nf the Langs, Pain in the regions ol
tba Kidneys, and a hundred other painful symptoms,
are the oajprings of Dyspepsia. In these complaints
it haa no equal, and oat bottle will prove a better guar
antee of its merits than a lengthy advertisement.
For sVesnavIe Cowplalnla m young Of old,
married or single, at the dawn of womanhood, or tha
turn of life, these Tonic Bittera display so deeded an
influence that a marked improvement is soon percep
tible. For Inflammatory and Chronle Ihesw
Baa Clam and Gout,bysiptiaor Indigestion, Bilious,
Remittent and Intermittent Keren, Disease of tha
Blood, Liver, Kidneys and Bladder, these Bitter have
been most successful. Such Disease are caused by
Vitiated lilood, which is generally produced by dcrange
ascnt of the Digestive Organs.
They are a Gentla PartrallT a wall aa
Tonic, possessing also the peculiar merit of acting
as a powerful agent in relieving Congestion or Inflam

such cases will convince the most incredulous of their
Cleans tha Vitiated IilaMxl whenever yon
find its impurities bursting through the skin in Pimples,
Eruptions, or Sores ; cleanse it when you find it ob
structed and sluggish in the veins ; cleanse k when il is
foul ; your feelings will tell you when. Keep lb blood
pure, and the health of tbe system will follow.

Tsas the most wonderful lavigurant that ever sustained

Pin, Tapa, and oilier Worm, lurking in
the system of so many thousand, art effectually de

ogist: There is scarcely an individual upon the face of the
earth whose body is exempt from the presence of worms.
It is not upon the henUhy elements of the body that
worms exist, but upon uie diseased humors and slimy
deporita that breed these living monster cf disaas.
No system of Medicine, ao vermifuges, no anthclmia
itics will free the system from worms like these Bit

unusual heat and dryness, are invariably accompanied
by extensive derangements of the stomach and liver, and
other abdominal viscera. There are always more or less
abstractions of Ih liver, a weakness and irritable state
of the stomach, and great torpor of the bowels, being
clogged up with vitiated accumulations. (In their treat
ment, a purgative, exerting a powerful influence upon
these various organs, is essentially necessary. There is
no cathartic far tbe purpose equal lo Da. J. Wauii'i

dark -colored viscid matter with which the bowels art
loaded, at the name time stimulating the secretions of

Tha Aperient and mild Laxativ properties el
Da. Walks' Vimbgab Birraas are the best safe
guard in all cases of eruptions and malignant fevers,
their balsamic healing, and soothing properties protect
the humors of the fauces- Their Sedative properties
allay pain ia the nervous system, stomach, and bowels,
either from inflammation, wind, colic, cramps, etc
Their Counter-irritant influanca extends throughout
the system. Their Diuretic properties act on the Kid

and art superior lo all remedial agents, for lite curt ol
