One of the colored men declared to be ineligible to office, is said to have "shook tho dust from his feet when he left the representative hall."

Two thieves in Pittsburg met a gentleman walking the streets late atnight with a box under 4ns arm, undertook to show him to a hotel. They relieve! hitn of the box and ran off with it. The gentleman was a naturalist an 1 his box contained four rattlesnakes. Josh Billing says it is his "honest opinyum whiskee is second only tew original sin ; it is a uiillstun, bung upon the neck uv poor de graded human nature, and if the devil was allowed leave uv absence for six months tew vis>t this earth, the first thing he would dew would be to lobby our legislatures for a re peal of the excise law, and then inVest his pile in gin mills."

The eldest son of the late Mr. Lincolu has been good enough to write, and have printed a letter relieving Mr, Seymour of the imputation that he intends to vote for him. A radical bid for votes is five hundred million dollars a year in taxation. A negro Tanner's Club has caused dis sension ammong truly loyal Chicagoans. At the rate of §12,000,000 increase of the debt in one month (August), how long will it take to pay the national debt ? Illinois is on fire. At Lealand and at Ottawa, at Springfield and Joilet.at Cairo and at Peoria, immense Democratic meet ings were held on Saturday.

BANGOR, Me., September 15-2 A. M. — THE DEMOCRACY OF MAINE HAVE TO- DAY ACHIEVED A GREAT VICTORY, notwithstand ing the most desperate efforts of the Re. publicans, and an immense expenditure of mones. THE REPUBLICAN MAJORITY HAS REEN REDUCED TO EIGHTEFN THOUSAND, DIING A DEMOCRATIC GAIN OF NEARLY TEN THOUSAND over the test vote of 1806. The Democrats are rejoicing and holding a great meeting. The Republicans who anticipated 25,000 majority, feel blue. A MASS MEETING! Of the conservative citizens of Wyo ming County will be held at the Grove near TUNKHANNOCK Borough, on Tuesday, the 22d of Sept. inst., at j 1 o'clock, P. M. To avoid unnecessary delay, it has been deemed expedient by the Com mittee of Arrangements to construct i a table upon the ground for the ac commodation of those who may find it convenient to bring with them their own refreshments. In this way all will have an opportunity to hear all the speakers, without incurring the risk of losing their dinners, Hon. GEO. W. WOODWARD and V. E. PIOLLETT will be with us upon that occasion, and Hon. Ulster clymer, and other eminent statesmen will also be present, if other engagements shall permit. To the Democrats of the several townships we desire to say, let us prepare to make one more effort to remedy the svils, remove \he burthens, and avert the perils that have been brought upon the country by Repub lican misrule. Not as partisans, mere ly—not for the sake of party, but for that of the country, let us indnlge th hope that such effort will not prove fruitless. " Awake i arise ! or bt forevet fallen," I lie Radical " Mass Meeting" held at this place, on Wednesday, was rather a slim affair. Gov. Harriman, repeated iiis oft told tale of the "wickedness of the re bellion" ir. rather good English for a deoun eaUer —hut wisely avoided the vital issues of the campaign. lie revamped the stale and false charges of Democratic sympathy with disunion in 1860 —but did not advert to Greeley's, Chase's, Bank's, Sumner and Phillips', disunion sentiments in that year. E. D. Culver, the lawyer, Judge, and foreign minister—as he told us—is, if a lawyer at all, of about the 7th rate. He is evidently a bondholder, for when he came to speak of their patriotic services in behalf of the government he bohooed right out. O! how it did hurt the old fellow's feelings to think of paying the patriotic chaps in the same currency which the wounded soldier, the widow, the or phan and the laborer is obliged to take. This mass meeting was composed of at least one-third Democrats and all were well accommodated in the Court House room. JT-if A new power press, which we have put up in our office, since our last issue, occasioned a delay of a few hours in getting out our paper this week. We expect, in the future, to get our paper out in time and at a great deal less expense of muscle. W e invite our friends, who come to town, to drop in and take a look at our new machine. Wer'e as proud of it, as a young mother is of her first baby. We suppose however, that like them, it w ill como to be an old . story —nothing but a squawl after all.

Look at tlie result of the State elec tions in the North, held since the nomina tion of General Grant : AGAINST GRANT. IDAHO. ' OREGON. MONTANA. CONNECTICUT. FOR GRANT. VERMONT. MAINE. Attend to the Assessment. No person can be permitted to vote in this State on the Second Tuesday in Oc tober next, who shall not have paid a State or County tax within the two years imme diately preceding that day, which tax must have been assessed at least ten days previous to the 13th of October. It is highly important, therefore, that all our friends should immediately give their at tention to this matter, so that no democrat shall lose his vote at the approaching elec tion, on account of non-assessment or non payment of tax. Bear in mind that the assessment must be TEN DAVS BEFORE THE ELECTION. GO at once and see that your name is on the assessor s book.— Let no vote be lost to our ticket through failure to attend to this matter. jC-fT By the act of the Legislature, pass ed last session, the assessor of each town ship is authorized and directed to receive and give receipts for the extra assessment tax. The deep piety of General Grant will bo no longer called in question bv the most bitter of his opponents. Ho may show too strong'a penchant for horse flesh, and perhaps indulge sometimes in a little old Bourbon, when Stanton or Sher idan calls, but he is undoubtedly pious.— We have it on the authority of the Titus ville (Kadical) Herald that General Grant declared that "as regular as Snnday morning came, he made it his religious duty to read one of the Kev. Mr. Nasby's sermons." Petroleum will bo White House Chap lain in case of Grant's election. Think of it! 600,000 ignoran t, de based and brutal blacks holding the bal i ancc of political power in this country 1 j The votes overbalance tho*e of tiie 600,000 voters of Pennsylvania. The latter have j twenty-four representatives in Congress, two United .States Senators j the former, the 600,000 blacks, are represented by KIVTY- six members and TWENTY-TWO Senators in the Congress of the United States. Such is the work of the party of which Gert. Grant has consented to be come the tool. 4 ■— ■ WISCONSIN* —There are good grounds to believe that the electorial vote of Wis consin will be given to Seymour and b.'ir. In 18S the Kadical majority was 23,904 In 1867 it was only 4,704 Democratic gain in the year 19,140 i A similar gain duiing the past year would give the State to the Democrats by upwatds of 14,000 majority.

The ballot being taken Col. Piolett re ceived six votes and B. K. Rhodes four. Cel. I'iollet Laving received a majority of all the votes was declared the nominee of the Conference. On motion of C. D. Gearhart, seconded by Mr. Meylert, the nomination of Col. Piollct was made unamimous. On motion of Mr. Ammerman, a Com mittee was appointed by the Chairman to wait upon Col. Piollct and inform him of his nomination, and introduce him to the Conference. The Committee consisting of the Mon tour conferees having performed their du ty introduced Col. Piollct, who being wel comed by the Chairman and the result of the conference communicated to him in Mr. Jackson's usual happy manner. Col. Piollett in a few judicious remarks accept the nomination and said he should endeav or to fulfil the expectations of the people nominating him and who he believed would elect biin. Mr. Rhodes having been called upon, made a few remarks thanking the members of the conference for the voles given him, and fully endorsing the action of the con ference in making the nomination of Col. l'iollet unanimous.

Won't some Black Republican get the disease in order to test its efficacy? We take the prescription from a paper of that stry pe; and if a good one, it ought to cure our "colored bretbern," who fought so nobly. If a humbug, it is like everything else found in their papers. We give it for what it is worth : "One grain of sulphate of zinc, one grain of fox-glove ( digitalis ;) mix with a little water and sugar; then add three ounces of water ; give the patient a table spoonful of this every hour. At the sec ond hour the patient begins to feel its ef fect by a great sense ot comfort. At the third hour a genial and natural warmth pervades the system, and by the eighth hour the disease is thoroughly arrested, no matter what stage it may have reached.— It can be given at any period of the dis ease. A smaller dose for children, accor ding to their age. One dose is far .better than two vaccinations. It has been usod and is being used with certainty in every case, arresting the dis ease at once. It is used in the same man ner lor scarlet fever, add with the same positive success." HON GF.ORGE W. WOODWARD.—The Philadelphia Age pays the following just compliment to Hon, George W, Wood ward candidate for Representative in Con gress, in the Luzerne district: "Hon. George W. Woodward has been renominated for Congress by tho Democ racy of the Twelfth District ot this State. This is a well merited tribute to one of the ablest defenders of the Constitution, and tfhe riohls of white men under that instru ment, in the Fortieth Congress. The speeches of Mr. Woodward are models of logic, while at the same time they fire the popular heart ami make men know they have interests in this country, and defend ing them by all lawful and honest means. The Forty-first Congress will have no more fearless defender of republican insti tutions Irom the assault of Radical traitors than the statesman and patriot just renom inated by the Democrats in the Luzerne District. ANOTHER DEMOCRATIC VICTORY I The Georgia House of Reprenauves has resolved by a vote of 80 to 23 that negroes were ineligible, and expelled twenty four or tw< nty five of them from seats in that body, to make room for white mcPi Peace. If white men are anxious to know what kind of peace the nation will enjoy under Grant and the Radical party, let them read the following account given by the Macon (Georgia) Journal and Afexsenyer of an affair which occurred a few weeks ago in Dooly county, Georgia : "On Saturday last, a body of negroes numbering from 150 to 200, armed with guns and pistols, assembled in obedience | to a summons sent them bv tbeir leaders, at the cabin of an old negro, some two miles and a half from Vienna, the county site, for drill, "to form a Grant club, and for the security of all their rights," as they expressed it. Threats were freely made to capture the village, tear down the jail and liberate certain negroes contained therein. The aspect of affairs was BO threatening that the citizens of the county were summoned to meet at the court-house. About two hundred responded, and upon consultation a committee were appointed to go and see what the Degroes were at, and what they intended to do. This com mittee when nearing the rendezvous, were halted by an armed negro to whom they made known their wishes to see their Captain, as he was designated—a origiually from this county, aud calied Hugh Dean. After several refusals, he at last came out to the committee, and in answer to their demands as to the object of this meet ing of armed men, replied that it was to form a Grant club to secure tbeir rights —that hereafter whenever a negro was ar rested the club intended to sit in judg ment on his case, and if they did not deem the testimony sufficient for bis detention, they intended to release him from jail.— He also said that the club were determin ed at the end of the year, if the planters did not give them all they wanted, either in money or in crop wages, to seize their honses and property and help themselves. In answer to a question as to the authori ty under which he acted, he said distinct ly, that "they had received their commands to assemble in this manner from Governor Bullock, and were acting under his au thority, and he was their leader and pro tector." Will vote for Seymour The following prominent gentlemen who have formerly voted with the Rapublican party have recently declared their inten tions to vote for Seymour and Biair: Hon. R. M. Briggs, of Fayette county, Ohio,—Republican candidate for Congress in the Gth District in 1862, now Common Pleas Judge, is on the stump for Seymour and Blair. Hon. A. L, Bachus, a distinguished lawyer of Cleveland, has pronounced for Seymour and Blair. Gen. A. Saunders Piatt, of Logan coun ty, Ohio,in a recent speech pronounced for Seymour and Blair. Col. J.M, Council, of Lancaster, Ohio who commanded an Ohio Regiment, dur ing the war, and recently represented his district in the State Senate, is now on the stump for Seymour and Blair. Gen. Jos. U. Geiger, of Columbus, one of the most eloquent speakers the Repub lican party over had, is on the stump for Sevmour and Blair. Ex-Gov. Sherwood, of Wisconsin, has come out uuequivocally for Seymour and Blair. Ex-Gov. Johnson, of Pennsylvania, made a speech at Pittsburg, a few days since, in whi'ch he said he could longer vote with the Radicals but woultj support Seymour and Blair. A. S. Blake Esq., of Goshen, Ind., un til recently a leading Republican of North ern Indiana, is on the stump for Seymour and Blair. Hon. W. B. Jones, nominated by the Radicals in Alabama for Grant Elector in the 4th district, has declined defeat on the Radical ticket, and taken the stump for Seymour and Blair. Gen. Richardson, of Monroe county, Hon. S. Lind, of Toledo, and thousand of others less prominent Push on the ball! Gov. CIRTIN OS Gov. SETMOCR.— Gov. Curlin, of this State, was asked the other day, in the Union League club bouse of Philadelphia, what was his opin ion of Gov. Seymour, He replied •"Well, sir, if I were asked to mention a man who, in my estimation, had the at tributes of a perfect gentleman, a cultiva ted scholar, a thorough statesman, and a sincere Christain, I would, without hesita tion, name Horatio Seymour of New York." "How about Seymour's loyalty," "After the dispatches that I sent Seymour at the time ot the rebel raid into Pennsylvania," replied the Governor, "it would hardly be come me to impugn his loyalty ; the fact is I havo never doubted it. I understand that Belmont is having all the dispatches sent by Stanton and myself printed, and I have no doubt they will bo in the hands of every Seymour stump speaker through ! the campaign. We had better give up attackiug Seymour's loyalty, for the oppo sition hold the trump card in that mat i ter. JUDGE WOODWARD.—-The Philadelphia Herald thus speaks of the nominee for Congress in the Twelfth District, "The country has need of such men as Judge Woodward at this time. A pro found statesman and jurist, an able and eloquent orator, a stalwart and unflinching defender of the Constitution, we rejoice to know that the country will have the benefit of his services in the Forty-first Congress." The Luzerne County people have gone to work with a will to elect Judge Wood ward ; and will do it by a majority that will dumb found his enemies. /•if" I will have no policy of my own," says Gen. Grant. The mongrel policy as shown by the report of the Secretary of the Tresnry, is a further increase of twelve millions more to the public debt. PUBLIC DEBT, —The monthly statement of the public debt of the United Btataa, shows an increase of 18,000,000 for Jnly and over 12.0u0,000 for Augutt, 1808.— Let ui baft piici. Club Meeting in Monroe.
