THE COST—Thirty millions of dollsrs yesr

about one sixth of the cost yearly of making
negroes voters throughout the South. This
amount comes directly out of the pockets of
the tax payers of the North, and every vote
in favor of the candidates of the mongrel par
ty, is a vote in favor of this robbery of white
men, in order to secure ths Supremacy of tbe
negro throughout the South.

prove that Radicalism is really treason, aod
that the men now fighting President John

tgp The "high-toned" editor of the Re
publican last week, says: we "in youth tra
ded our bible for a pack of cards,"
To have invented and gotten off such a
brilliant and witty thing, must have severe
ly taxed the brain of that gentleman. No
wonder he stops, to load up again. A few
more such shining sparks from bis meat

What the Republican Party desire Is JCSTlCß—
impartial and uoequmtcal to the BLACK NAB— and
THAT it a ILL OA VK. Wyoming Republican.
Why this extreme solicitude for the
blacks ? What rights are denied them ?
Are they not free to go and come when
and where they please ? Are tbey not
protected by radical laws in crowding
themselves into our Ladie's cars—where
white men are often excluded 1 Are they
not fed and supported l>y the hard earned
money ot the white men ? Ar<) not the
millions expended yearly thiough the
"Bureau" sufficient to satisfy them and
their white- faced brethren ?
Something more, it seems is wanted. —
Our radical editor says "they know how
to vote on the side of intelligence, freedom
and right."
Our State constitution give this right to
"white men". Here is the rub with the
tender hearted nigger, loving rads. The
right to vote ss ''what they desire and will
have" for their colored pets. Will the
white men aidt bam in extending the rights
of negroes ?
Are not the white men of the country
who support themselves and the niggers
too-intelligent enough to make laws for
themselves ?
White folks let's try the experiment !
When we fail, it will be time enough to
call on these intelligent niggers for help.
Resolutions of Radical Co. Convention.
"The following preamble and resolutions
were offered by A. Hine and unanimously
WHEREAS, The Republican party is a
party of patriotism, decency, morality, and
opposed to vice and crime. Therefore
Retolved, That it is the sense of this
convention tbat it would be wise and ju
dicious to extend the law prohibiting the
sale of intoxicating drink throughout the
Retolved , Tbat intemperance is a great
evil, and that the sale of intoxicating drink
should be prohibited by law, and tbat we
are opposed to the repeal of any law now
in existence upon that subject."
A party that it the "party of Patriotism,
decency, morality Ac" would not, among
intelligent men, need to solemnly announce
that there were such, A discriminating
people, might, if there were any truth or
justice in the claim, be able to discover the
fact. Perhaps,however this is a recent dis
covery, which the modest radicals are pro
claiming to the world. They should have
published it, by some other mouth piece,
than a man who is so notoriously vnlgar
and indecent in his every day talk as to be
forbidden the store-rooms of party friends,
in which to vent bis low vulgarisms.
We have heard that the puritan progen
itors of these "patriotic and decent" radi
cals once got together and with like nDa
minity resolved,
Ist That the world, and avery thing there
in belonged to the saints.
Id. That they were the saints.
No discreet man, indeed no person but
the veriest fool, would stop to argue tbe
question with such a logical set of self-styl
ed saints and decent—cusses ?
built by the late radical
..vention for this County, upon which to
run their candidates, when viewed in eon
nectionj with the candidates themselves,
most, to these not acquainted with the cir
staoces, be an enigma. A strange piece
of fpolitico-probibito-rum-jug-glery; by
which those opposed to whiskey, are to go
for the platform and the candidates, and
those in favor of whiskey are to go for the
candidates and the platform. It would be
unjust in us to intimate that there is any
tnck, any guile <o these "decent and moral 1 '
men. The explanation of this political
paradox—this dry platform for wet candi
dates is this:
The rascally rum-sucking radt, had
control of the convention against all corn
er*—including snaiks. Hence on the first
ballot they pitched the pot-bellied parson,
the very apostle of prohibition, overboard,
and he, literally "went down into the wa
ter." Mace, another templar, was made
to walk the plank, or figuratively speaking
to take to water too. Ziba—good easy soul!
who loves to see his friends wet their
whistles with the beverage of their choice
was the man for them. Then came the
Co. Commissioner, Daniel the Ist, who
lives too near a drug-store not to know that
three scruples make one dram—and has
no scruples when drams are to be bad.—
By a simple rule in addition, he turns
them into drams and then—he turns the
drams into—DanieL Uncle Harry, lixe
almost everybody else in his vicinity,
drinks when he's dry , but isn't so seversly
affected with drouths as some other men.
Dr. Rhoads keeps and sells some of the
"pure critter"—just for medicinal and me
chanical purposes, and is out, "medically,"
so often "late o' nights" that his "machine
ry" sometimes gets out of order. Of
course he turns on a little more steam—
No Templar there !—Then we come to
Dauiel A., who has come up to us from
au age of honest whiskey distillers, and is
too old to be afraid of poison now, but i s
"awful" 'fraid of diseases. To k*ep the
system right, he indulges in a 'jersey treat"
when it's too cold, to keep out the frost —
when it's too warm to keep down the heat.
ID the fall, when the air is ''agerry"—in
the spring, when the spring fever's around,
and at all times to fortify the system
against the ravages of small-pox, whooping
; cough, measles, diptheria, scarletini,mucnps
and other of the ills which humanity is
heir to —all of which, Daniel don t want
to "ketch."
Not a man on this platform, ever saw
the inside of a Templar's Lodge-room.—
All, have many times in their eventful
lives, snuffed the inspiriting aromaa of the
bar-room, and sipped from the cut-glass
decanters* And now, strangely enough,
tbey find themselves on the dryest plat
form ever gotten up by mortal man !
Tbfe way of it was this: The Templars,
confident of success, spent tbeir time in
concocting ttrong resolutions in favor of a
weak beverage. The rumites meanwhile,
were busy treating up voters for tbeir del
egates. The result was as expressed by
one of the defeated ones " a triumph for
the "rum-guzzling Republicans." About
the close of the indecent proceedings of
this "decent party," and about the time
Jakey waR cooling bis rage in the "raging
canawl," the rumite* had got very thirsty;
and before Dick, whose throat had got
pretty husky too, could say amen 1 tine
die, or in any way stop the flow of "decen -
cy" they were making 2-40 time towards
the taverns and other dispensatories of
cold poison. This hegira left a hole in
the breeches—seat of this very decent
party. Hine came to the rescue; and
with caudal apendage of the nethermost
garment sticking out,
•'And tha wind a blowing,"
they preambled that tbey were "patriotic
and dcceDt," and resolved to put down
king AlcohoL
Dick, dry as he was, courageously essay
ed to speak, but was hissed down by
tongues, if possible more parched than his.
The good old Elisha who had just got over
his scare from maikt tried to talk down
the resolutions. The hissing of the water
loving geese was more terrible to bim,
even than adder's tongues* He dried up.
and the preamble and resolutions were
passed by an overwhelming majority.
This explains the contradiction between
candidates and platform—A platform
which most if not all of thenuspit on and re
pudiate; an! which, if not stained with
whiskey-slops before they are elected, will
give thtm a better title to "decency mor
ality and temperance" than tliey now seem
to merit.
In an article opposing somebody's
plan for paying off tbe federal bonds with
a new issue of greenbacks, the New York
Tribune says, "Such an act would sbame
any swindler who ever'altered counterfeit
money or passed off bogus checks," and
that no one will countenance any of these
devices tor evading debts instead of pay
ing them, who is not in heart and soul a
villain." What, then, does it say to the
act of the Radical officials of Pennsylvania
who, a couple of years ago, repudiated tbe
con'ract which the State had entered into
to pay interest on the State loan in coin,
and gave its creditoas greenbacks ? Are
they swindlers and villains?
If it was constitutional and honest to
pay good debts in greenbacks, it will be
constitutional and honest to do it again.
The Radical State Coupnittee are circu
lating through tbe State, endeavoring to
place in the hands of Democrats, a lying
document, appealing to the pecuniary in
terest of the voter. We give it entire, and
also annex some comments upon it. Read
it and notice its falsehoods :
In 1861, eleven States seceded; and
since then ooly twenty-three have been
represented in Congress, until the admis
sion of Tennesee in 1866.
All the United States Bonds— 5-20', 7-
30's and 10-40's—all the greenbacks, and
all tbe National Baoks, were created by
this Congress ot twenty-three States.
President Johnson calls this an "assum
ed Congress" —therefore not legal. His
supporters and the Democrats call it a
u rump Congress " and a " usurping; Con
gress," and beoce, not a lawful Congress;
and tbe great effort has been to elect Con
-1 gressmen in tbe North, and admit enough
from the rebel States to enforce this"/ > o/-
If a Congress, representing but twenty
three States, be not a lawful Coogres, then
every United States Bond, and all our
greenbacks, and National Bank notes are
worth nothing; because an unlawful Con
gress could not make lawful Bonds or law
Jul money.
The mad effort, so recently made by the
rebels and their sympathizers, to destroy
this Government by force of arms failed.
Thus far, the attempt to do the same thing
through Congress, has also failed, because
of the action of tbe loyal voters at the bal
lot-box ; and thelast effort at destruction is
now being made THROCOH THE COURTS.
Witness the recent attempt by Demo
cratic lawyers to induce the Supreme Court
of the United States to issue an injunction,
nullifying the Reconstruction Laws of Con
gress in Mississippi, Georga, and other
rebel States- Read also the opinion of
GEORGE SHABSWOOD, the Demociatic nom
inee forjudge of the Supreme Court of
Pennsylvania, in which he gravely denies
the constitutional power of Congress to
make paper money a legal tender. ~ ( Doric
' us. Trotl, Legal Intilligencer of March 18th
1864, page 92.) Judges WOODWARD and
| TAOMPSQN ot the same Court, announced
iroin the bench the same alarming Doctrine
jin 1865. ( See tier vine vi. Sailor, et al.,
1 Legal Intelligencer of June 16 <Sc 30—1865
pages 188 A 205.)
And this, too, in the face of the fact.
' that the Superior Courts of every loyal
: State in which the question has been rais—
• ed, have sustained the power of Congress,
j •- It requires, therefore, but little koowl
' edge of either arithmetic or,law, to estimate
j the imminent danger of putting any more
J men of Judge SHARSWOOD'S opinions on
i the Supreme Bench of the State !
I If you believe the present Congress to
! be unlawful, or desire our National curren
cy and Government Bonds to be declared
I unlayful, vote for GEOKOE SHARSWOOD.
If you believe the piesent Consress to
, unlawful, or desire their action on Curren
cy and Bonds to stand good, vote to sus
i tain thern, —for the party that created the
j Greenbacks and the Bonds.
When secession came, Democrats sus
tained the Government, shed their blood,
invested their money in 5-20's, 7-30's, and
10 40's sent their members to Congress,
and obeyed the laws that a Congress of
twenty-three States enacted. That was
their Government and they loved it, they
defended it, and many of them, died for it,
During the war, eleven States were not
represented in Congress, and they refused
to be. That was a lawful Congress, all
obeyed it and all of its laws are binding
under the Constitution.
When the war was over the South sub
mitted, th*n the Radicals kept them out to
give the negro power. They w acted out
side ot the Constitution," as Thaddeus Ste
vens says. i
If it be true, that the Democrats are try
ing to destroy this Government, how
strange it is that they should bold its bonds
and notes, and fight and die for it. Their
object is to preserve it, to bring it within
the Constitution, to govern according to
law, to economise its resources, and to pay
its debts.
Are your Bonds and greenbacks safer
inside the Constitution or outside of it. If
we have no Constitution, as Stevens says,
what security bsve yon for your debt.—
The Constitution is the title deed to the
property that your debt is a lien upon.
In the case of Borie agaiDSt Trott,
Judge Sharswood decided that a man who
agreed to pay a debt in gold should pay
it in gold, Was not this right ? He did
not decide the question of the power of
You hold a 5-20 or a 10-40 bond, the
interest is payable in gold. The Govern
ment agreed to pay you in gold. The
Radicals and their Judges say the Gov
ernment may pay you in paper. Judge
Sharswood holJs that a contract to pay in
gold should be enforced, which best suits
yon ? Which is the more honest?
Do you see where this Radical doctrine
leads you f They already say that the
principal of the Bonds may be paid in pa
per. If Judge Williams decides that your
interest is payable in paper, is your con
tract with the Government carried out?—
Will he not so decide?
They will pay in paper if their extrava
gance makes it necessary. The iuterest
on our State Bonds was payable in cold,
thejlaw made it so, [See Act of 1810.) In
1864, when gold was 166 the Radicals in
the Legislature passed a law making it
payable in paper, on the ground that they
could save money, [see Legislative liec. '64.)
Are you any more secure than the Bond
holders of the State ?
The expenses of the Government are
more than its income. The Radicals are
expending two hundred and twenty-five
millions of your money for this year.—
The Democrats spent sixty-two millions
the last year they were in power, for the
same purposes. Can you sustain this ex
travagance ? Does not the security of
your debt consist in prudent management,
economy in public business, and in nour
ishing and developing onr resources ? Are
the Radicals pursuing this course 1
If you wish your bond and its interest
paid in paper and your contract with the
Government violated, vote for HENRY W.
If vou want contracts between man and
man, and between the Government and
yourself carried out, vote for GEOBGK
State Central Committee.
To the People of Pennsylvania:
The Radicals attempt to evade the
practical issues of the canvass and to de
lude you into the support of their candi
They alone are accountable for the
prostration of your business interests.—
They have deliberately sacrificed tbem in
order to place in tbe bands of Southern
Negroes, the balance of power in tbe lie
pnblic)and thus preserve their own rule.—
More than two years have passed since
peace was restored, and we still look in
vain for increased products from the South
to aid us in paying the interest on our
debt, aod for her prosperous customers to
buy our woolen, iron and other manufac
. Instead of receiving aid to pay our
debt, we are taxed to maintain a freed
raan's bureau and a standing army in the
South. Instead of prosperous customers
to increase our trade, every business in
terest languishes.
Radical mismanagement, a negro policy,
and Radical extravagance, weigh dowD
our energies and fetter our resources.
The whole expense of the War Depart
ment in 1860 was sixteen and a half mil
lions, whilst in 18G7, it is estimated by
the Treasury at forty-seven millions, both
being periods of peace. To give the Negro
the power to rule us, therefore, costs the
nation annually thirty millions. Of this
amount, Pennsylvania's share is at least
one-tenth, and your industry must annual
ly pay three mifhuns of dollars to support
a pohcy that closes your woolen mills and
stops your factories.
In your State affairs, mismanagement,
corruption and extravagance are the rule.
.In 1860, under Democratic power the
whole amount of mon<y appropriated, and
expended, independent of funded debt and
military expense, as shown by the Treasu
ry was nine kuvdred and ninety-eiyht thou
sand dollars. In 1864, excluding the
same items, the Radicals appropriated and
expended one million three hundred and
seventy-nine thousand dollars. In 18C5,
excluding the some items, the Radicals ap
propriated and expended one million five
hundred and n neteen thousand dollars,
anl in iB6O, excluding the game items,
they appropriated and expended TWO
The reports of the Auditor General show
these facts, and prove that is six YEARS
The men who have thus wasted yonr
substance, prate of their loyalty and their
sacrifices, and would maintain their hold
upon the public treasury by fixing your
attention upon other issues- You are op
pre.-sed by taxation through"intenjal reve
nue and other machinery, as no other peo
ple ever were. It takes from you, your
legitimate profits ai d gives you no ens-
tomers. It compels you to stop m mufac
ttuing and to discharge your workmen*—
Your gords remain unsold and your oper
atives suffer. Can you expect relief from
this grinding taxation, so long as these
enormous expenditures continue. Relief
can only come throngh economy in pub
lic affairs, a reduction in your expenses,
and the discharge of corrupt and extrava
gant officials.
It is their parpose to violate the great
principle, "that each State has the right
to determine the qualifications of its own
electors," and give the negroes of Penn
sylvania the balance of power between the
two great political parties. Negro suffrage
is to be forced upon you by Congressional
enactment, and your "Supreme Court is to
be placed in harmony" with that law, by
electing Judge Williams, who is relied up
on to decide that the negro is entitled to
a right which you and your organic laws
deny him. In the Senate of the United
States, in Jnly last, the recognized leader
of the Radicals of this State, voted to pro
ceed to consider a bill that was introduced
by Wilson of Massachusetts, to effect this
infamous purpose.
Let the result in California arouse you
to to renewed exertion. Work is to be
done, and you must do it. Committees
may plan and order, but the resnlt depends
upon youiselves. Individual effort is the
road to victory See your neighbor, en
courage him, bring him to the polls. Per
fect your organizations. Block your
wards and townships. Subdivide the la
bor and perform it with energy.
Press home upon your adversaries the
reabissues of the canvass. Demand of
them that they shall answer:
Are you for or against the Radical pol
icy that destroys our business and closes
our work shops, mills and factories, to give
the negro the balance of power ?
Are you for or against continued cor
ruption, mismanagement and extrava
gance ?
Are you for or against conceding to
Congress, the right to allow the negro the
power to rule Penhsylvania.

a Radical majority of 30,000 ! Kentucky
remained true to the Union, sent 83,000
men intothe Federal armies, and now polls
.60,000 Democratic majority ! What more
is necessary to prove that Radicalism is
really treason, and that the men now fight

"traitors at the other end of the line ?"
Ponder this fact.
writing to the New York Times, says that
afitr having a conversation witK Gen Grant
he thinks that Gen. is loyal. Just think
of the impertiuence of a man doubting the
loyalty of Grant, the general in chief. It
is because Grant is the Secretary of war to
President Johnson, that Radicals doubt
his loyalty and would destroy him. Ac
cording to the Radicals nobody is loyal
