Mississippi, Vitgioia and Texas from the
electorial college, and by a legislative usur

Our Candidates.
The ticket placed in nomination by the
Democratic Convention, which met here
lon Monday last, ia a good and unexeep- J
I t ion able one, from top to bottom. Exactly ,
such a one as is fit to follow in the
list, headed by Seymour, Blair, Boyle and
Ent. One with which we can, in October,
give the Jacobins a stunning installment
of the Waterloo defeat which awaits them .
iu November. Look at the list.
For Congress.
j Who has the unanimous voice of Wy- i
oming County and we believe of the Dis- 1
trict, is a man so well and favorably
known in Pennsylvania, that nothing that
we might say of him would-add to the es
teem in which he is held, by his most in
timate friends aud acquaintances in this
District. As a farmer, as a projector, con
tractor and builder of great public im- '
I provements, and as a Legislator be has
shown himself to be the peer of the ablest
in the Country. As an intelligent tbo' unas
suming citizen farmer he rauks above all.
Tbe door of his hospitable house has nev
er been closed to any honest man. His
hand and purse have always been open to
the appeals of the poor and unfortunate.
While be lias been a most zealous and
active participant in great public affairs, he
has never at any time neglected the little
small courtesies of life—the local neigh
borhood affairs which have made his town
ship and neighborhood a model one in his
I County,
' The people of the whole District with a
I unanimity never before felt, now look to
I him as one of their deliverers from the
tai aticisra Sc. corruption which have prevail
ed in the cooocils of the nation. He has
proved to be a pure, incorrnptaMe and
sagacious leader. The day of the tri
, umpb ot truth aud right, over falsehood
I and injustice, is drawing near. Let tbe
j masses be but trne to themselves, and
j their country's best interest*, and we can
j not doubt that the result will be The tri
umphant election of Victor E. Piollett—
the peoples' candidate for Congress.
Tbe nominee for State Senator, well
known to all in this County as "Sheriff
Billings"—though almost a stranger to
the people wlten inducted into that office,
left it with a host of of ardent friends.
He ia put down in men's memories as "one
of the best Sheriff swe ever had,*' Though
t there is but little hope that he, if concurred,
in, can be elected in this District—the other
counties of which are so strongly Republi
can—we eball have the proud satisfac
tion that we have a man well worthy of
otir suffrages. One who wlil carry a large
vote at least in this County where he is
Of LaGrange, in Tunkhannock Town
ship, the Candidate for Representative, is
—wherever known, recognized as an hon
est, capable mail and most excellent citizen.
We feel certain, notwithstanding the heavy
Republican majority against us in the Dis
trict —that if ho was as well known in Sus
quehanna as he is in Wyoming County,
his election would be assured. That be
would bean honor to the district, if elected,
no man who kows him can hesitate to be
lieve. Let's elect him !
OfForkston, our Candidate for Treasur
er—everybody knows "Uncle Hiram" !
the "wheel-horse of the the Democracy,"
who has streached the traces in the cause—
in its every contest, front the Jacksonian
period down to the present time. His
nomination and election is due from the
party that owes so much to his fidelity.
He is a capable and honest man; and the
Republican nominee—whoever he may be
just now it seems pretty difficult for them
to find one—won't see the tip of his Coat
tail, in the race. "Uuolo Hiram" is now a
Leader—and worthy of the position.
Of Monroe, our Candidate for Commis
sioner, is an intelligent, prudent industri
ous citizen and farmer, of high moral char
acter —just such a man as the people want
to take charge of their interests, in the af
fairs of the County. The people will not
fad to elect hirn for that reason, and be
cause his democracy as well as liis integri
ty is above reproach.
The Candidate for District Attorney is j
at present one of ti/e justices of the Peace ,
for our Borough. \\ hile he is a Democrat
all over—as an official he recognizes on

Of Meshoppen. out candidate for Audi

man for this very important, though un
remunerative office The Captain enter

under the assurance that it was to be a
war for the restoration of the Union, "an I
not for any purpose of subjugation or
conquest, but to maintain the supremacy
of tbe Constitution and to preserve the
Union with all the dignity, e juality and
rights of the several States unimpaired."
For this Capt, Burr fought four years, by
his bravery and good conduct rose from
the ranks, to a Captaincy, his scars attest
his bravery. He never forgot the princi
ples for which he was contending, and t*
still battling for them, in the ranks of the
Democracy. Some .of our readers may
remember that Capt. Burr, as Post
Master at Meshoppen, refused to aid the
Republican black mailers in their demand
on him for money, to he used as an
electioneering corruption fund.

The Reign of Terror.
The following extract-from a letter
written by a lady in Elizabeth City county
Virginia, dated July 22, shows the result
of the Jarobin government in the Bonth :
You never saw such a frightened set as
we were last night, and even now H make*
me shudder to think of it... Last night we
all retired as usual, and had been asleep
about two hours, when we were suddenly
aroused by tbe barking of a dog, and four
or five successive reports of tire-arms.—
Instantly all were wide awake and # on the
alert, confident in the thought that pa bad
been Awakened and .gone out t6 learß the
cause of such an uproar, as he had often
done before; but presently, in a coarse,
gruff tone which we knew proceeded nor
from pa. we hear-l, ••shoot him! hit him
again!" Oh! you cannot imagine nor
describe mv feelings. I male sure that
pa had gone out and had been caught b\
the ruffians, lrom whom proceeded these
unfeeling remarks. * * * * Judge
if you oan our surprise and relief win u we
found that be had not gone out hut was
preptring to do so. NY c succeeded iu dis
suading him from this would-be mad act,
as the doors were wet! guarded, and the
gang outside could furnish enough men to
overpower and murder him without miss
ing them from the main body, so numer
ous wete thev.
Just think, here we are, and have been
for the last two years, working as hard as
our health would permit, to obtain an hon
est and common livelihood, and for what.'
To have a parcel of worthless impudent
and lazy negroes steal it; and what is
worse, he prevented by their superior
forces horn defending our property.
When we arose this morning we found
nearly all of the back part of the smoke
house torn down, four hog 9 missing, and
the brave-t of the dogs shot through ttie
head. It makes my blood boil to think
of it, but while I am indulging in such
feelings I atn truly thankful it is no worse
and that we are all alive. * * Rut wv
dread a repetition. * * * * You
may thhik that in my excitement I have
colored the facts ratlmr too highly, but I
have rt luted them as they actually occur
A correspondent at Little Rock, Arkan
sas.says that negro outrages are of hourly .

Mortgaging the Labor of the Country j
for Forty Years.
The Senate, pa-sed the Fund
ing BiM, which wrJl probabiy pass the I
House son. Two classes of bonds, one
payable in 40 years at 4.} per cent, inter
est, are to be issued. Both principal and
interest ure to paid in gold, ami the bonds
are to be free from all taxes except tire in
conic, wii'cb will not reach foreign bond
holdeis, ( is the tax is not to be taken from
Con pi nit,) nor one half ol the Americans,
for only through the coupon* can the in
come bo collected.
The past history of this country shows
that the United States bonds have run up
as high as ldJor over : and during Gen.
Jackson's time the three per cents of the
United States sohl at pnr. Notwithstand
ing these well known and well produced
facts in Congress, bv the Democratic
members, the rump now mortgages us all
for 40 years at 4 per cent, and thirty years !
at 41 per cent with gull interest andprin
cijxil. and no tuxes !
It was shown too, in debate in the
House- that in fotty years, nay. in less •
time, by A. D. 1000, — the population ot
this country would be 100,000,000, — and
that these one hundred millions of people j
under good Government, would more easi
Iv pay the two and one-half billions of
debt, we owe, than did the Democracy, |
under General Jackson's administration, ;
the debt of the revolution, and of the war |
of 1812.
The Ruinp. thus, it seems, has not only I
run us into debt $2,500,U0!J 000, —but ha* '
sold us, tor 40 years, to the bondholders, j
at gold interest and principal—with no
taxes. — N. Y. Express.

or in very moderate circumstances when

How did they acquire the wealth ? They
supported the government with their bawl

ed it with their long Angers. 'Radical
brawlers in office conspired with Radical
brawlers out of office to i=b the govern
ment they pretended to 1 serve. This is
why the public debt ran tip to such an
enormous amount. If the Radical party
had administered the government honestly
the debt would not be half as large as it
is, and the public credit would not lie in a
sinking condition. It was their extrava
gance and corruption that sunk the credit
of the government so' low that three dol
lars in government money commanded
only one dollar in gold — Ex,

able horse Dexter, of Mr. Bonner's stable
at the Fashion Course on Long Island, in
the prtsence of credible witnesses, trotted
a mile in the unprecedented time of two

on record.
A Radical paper tells us that "Gen
eral Giant will carry into the Presiden
tial chair a well-balanced mind." Accord

away his bottle, that be may carry also a
well-balanced body.
The Springfield (Mass.) Hepublican
is fearful that the Democratic party may
be "galvanized into rampant life." The
thing does look a good deal that way.
Investigating Committees.
The investigating committees are an in
stitution of the Radical party. In Demo
cratic times they were unknown. They
are never gotten np for any better purpose
than to smother investigation, instead of
honestly making it, or put m-mey unlawful,
ly in the pockets of the members. The
svstem commenced in the Radical Congress
at Washington, and d uring the summer of
1807, there were six or eight of tbem trav
eling about the country at public expense.
It was not long ontil their brethern in the
Pennsylvania and New York legislatures
imitated them In Pennsylvania they be
came an intolerable nuisance, and the Hon.
Charles E Boyle, in order to abate it, in
troduced a provision in a se"tion of the ap
propriation bill of 1867, forbidding the
payment of any membeis fot services on
committees, when the Legislature was not
in session. But this law was deliberately
violated, and seven of these committees
were paid by the State Treasurer on the
order of the Auditor General. We present
the account of one of these committees
from the Auditor General's report for 18C7;
William B. Hood, member of the
committee to inquire into tire
running of steam ears over the
paved teets of lite city of
Philadelphia, 8381 GO
Geo. DeHaven, member of said
committee, 381 60
George A. (Juighy, member of
said committee, 381 CO
WM. J. D inohugh, member of
said Comm tttre, 381 60
George W. Glu-gan, member of
said committee, 381 60
John W. Bodean, clerk to said
committee, 741 CO
William J. Ovens, Sergeant-at-
Arms, for expenses of said
committee, 100 99
All the investigations of this committee
could have been made while the Legisla
ture was in session, but that would not
have afforded its members an opportunity
of drawing the sums opposite their names.
As it is, they took them in defiance of the
express provisions of the law, under the
order of John H. Hart ran ft, Auditor Gin

Horrible Outrages by the Indiana.
ST LOUIS, Aug 18. 1868.
MEN. — A letter from Ellsworth, Kansas,
dated on the 14th tnst, says: On Monday,
the 10th inst., a band of some two hundred
Indians appealed on Spelliuan's Creek,
alout sixteen miles northeast of Ellsworth.
Oil arriving at the house of Mr. Shaw, they
caught and heat him unmercifully, and
drove him away. The devils then caught
Mrs. Shaw, arid her sister, and violated
their persons. Som. thirty or more savages
continued to abuse these helpless wom.-n
until long a fie it hey had become senseless.
After dctroving Mr. Shaw's property the
Indians left the women for dead, and pro
ceeded to the house of Mr. Smith and heat
him in the same manner, and violited the
person of his wife, leaving her in a veiy
critical condition.
Indeed, it is feared that all the women
who have been subjected to these ouirag -s,
are fatally injured. The red d< vils met
and abused several other citizens by beat
ing them, and afur destroying nil the
property within their ieach they hft fur
the North,
These poor women say that for five or
six hours they were subjected to outrages
and they show fearful u arks of the cruelty
of their captors. In their efforts of resis
tance, they received very serious injuries.
A detachment of soidiesr were sent after
the Indians from Fort Harkrr, accompa
nied by fifty or sixty settlers. On Wednes
day night they sent for reinforcements,
and, on ThurdaV, a full Comdany under
command of Col. lientine, slatted for the
scene of the outrages.
The latest report is that Col. Bcntine
had come upon the Indians, who bad some
ten or fifteen women surrounded in a house,
and that he had diiveu the lu linns away,
hut whether he killed any of them was not
These are probably the same Indian*
who have been murdering and committing
other outrages on So lonian Creek.
Civil War.
Mongrol editors charge tbo Democratic
pariy with advocating and threatning civil
war. General Gordon of Georgia, in a re
cent letter, after vigorously denouncing the
Radicals, who have turned a deaf ear '"to
"the honest protestations of acceptance of
"the results of the war by the South," and
after clearly and sharply defining the real
issues of the approaching conflict, thus
ended his manly and patriotic letter:
I conjure *ll that are pmuti of the name of "Amer
j icAU cuixen," ami who sincerely desire to
rate an era ol good will aiming the people to j >IB ut,
without regard to past diffoieaces, and labor for Hie
success of the Doraocriti - party; lor its success means
. peace and harmony bettceen the section justice to
both races, ami prosperity to our tr'iafe country.
This is the kind of war Democrats are in
j favor of; "peace, harmony and prosperity
| to the whole country."
