by Wm. C. Bryant, Frio Trader, who is
at tho head of tho Rodubliean ticket in
York Stato j disfects after tho following
fashion tho provisions of tho bill which the
Republicans abuso the Senato for not pass
ing. Wc refer to it for two reasons First to
show that the Republicans aro not what
they havo claimed to bo; and second to
say that if Pennsylvania desires a tariff,
they must look to tho Democrats for it.
Tho Democrats aro supporting a tariff man
for Governor, tho Republicans aro oppos
ing him. 'I he Democrats support Ran

"Thcro is sugar, for instanoe, a com
modity of universal use, a necessity of
life, to all classes, which enters in a thou
sand ways into articles intended for human
food, which U now sufficiently taxod, but
which by this scheme is to bo taxed still

pound on brown sugars imported, and on

poorer classes ever to get any sugar except
tho very coarsest kinds. Two and a. half
cents a pound moro on refined sugars would
place them wholly beyond tho reach of any
but rich people. Others will bo compelled

importation and make them exorbitantly
dear. Then who is to be benofited by this

derives a largo rovenuo from the importa

longer, but a few dozen men in Providence
and elsewhere, for whose sake millions of
American citizens aro to be heavily taxed."
Tho "Wido Awakes."
As theso semi-military organizations of
tho Black Republicans aro exciting no lit
tlo attention throughout tho country at tho
present timo, and us many persons seem
to bo anxious to know something about
their origin and objeots, wo clip the follow

The Hartford Times says that' " tho

Our Congressman. 1
In another part of our' paper will he
found tho proceedings of tho Dcmooratio
Congressional Confercnca for tha 13th
Congressional District, composed of iho
counties of Luzcrno,-Columbia, Montour
ond Wyoming. It will be soon that David
R. Randall, Esq., of Iuzcrne, was selec
ted as tho standard' bearer, in the coming
contest. Somo forty-three ballots were
had boforo a nomination was effected, there
being n candidnto , presented from each
county, except Mbtrtou'r ho voting with
Wyoming, for Piatt.
Wa confess our regret that the claims ot
Wyoming county should havo ogam been
passed over ; but wo cannot see how it
ooutd he prevented.
After sorao forty ballots, it being evi
dent that Columbia and Lu.crno would not
voto for any ono out of thoso counties, the
namo of David R. Randall, Esq., was
presented by ono of tho Montour Confer
ees, which suon put an end to tho contest,
by tho Conferees from Montour and Wyo
ming and ono from Luzerne voting for him;
thus giving him tho nomination, which was
mado unanimous by tho Conference.
Wo havo thoroughly examined tho courso
of our Conferees, nnd entirely 'approve of
it. They did everything honorablo men
could do, and all that could have been
done, to secure the nomination of our can
didate ; and that they failed to do so, was
owing, as wo believe, to a bargain between
Luzcrno and Columbia, to tho effect that
nq man out of thoso counties should be
Montour, too, this timo, treated us well,
and voted steadily for our candidate. In
tho name of tho Dcraocrrcy of Wyoming,
wo thank them, hoping that they will nor?
cr havo reason to regret their courso.
David R. Randall, tho gentleman
who has rcccivod tho nomination, is a law
yer by profession, residing at Providence,
near Scranton, Luzerno couuty. We are
unacquainted with him, except by reputa
tion ; but aro informed by"thoso who aro
intimately acquainted' with the man and
his standing in community, that a bettor
or stronger nomination could not havo
been made. Ho lives, in that portion of
Luzcrno whero thero is a largo floating
population, whoso votes elected Geo. W.
Scranton, two years ago. That they
were, as well as many others, doceivcd
into voting'for Mr. Sfiranton, by his pro
fessions of conservatism, and his claiming
to bo as good a Democrat ns any of them,
thero is no doubt. His course in Con
gress has completely convinced Democrats
of their folly in voting for him, upon any
such grouuds, and that' his professions in
that respect, as ,woU as in many other re
spect's, was made to deceivo Democrats
into his support. ,
Mr. Randali, Is well 'known to the
people of Luzcrue as n true Democrat a
man of strict integrity and superior ability.
With such a candidate opposed by a man
who has cheated and deceived the peoplo,
we enter the conteft",coiifidcnt of an easy
victory." In thii "Democratic District,
tliero is no hope for a Rlack Republican,
with .such a record ns that of Geo. W.
Scranton in tho last .Congress.
Wo but speak tho sentiments of tho Do
mocraoy of Wyoming, when wc say.they
will give to Mr. Randall their cojdial
and hearty support. True, tho Democra
cy of this couuty would havo been moro
gratified had Mr. Piatt received tho nomi
nation ; but aB a majority of tho Confer
ees wero not in.favor of him, wo cheerful
ly yield, for it is only that willing and
hearty compliance with tho will of the
majority that makes harmony in our ranks,
gives success to our cherished princip'es,
and makes safe and, permanent all our
civil institutions. Sortli Branch Demo

I am and always havo been in favor of

ican industry. I refer tothespeech mado
by Col. A. K, McClurs, chairman of the
Republican Stato Committoa of this Com.
monwealth. Now, Mr.- McCluro is doubt
less a gentleman of veracity, and this mis
statement I can attribute to nothing but
profound ignorance of history. Mr.

Tho moment you abandon tho princi

his friends will not support Mr. Hamlin
for Vico President of tbo United States
I wonder, also, whother they will not vote
for,Mr. Lincoln, whose opinion on tuts ques
tion neither they nor anybody elso know
any thing about.
There is no record of his publio life that
affords any kuowlcdgo of nn viows upon
this question. Mr. Lincoln is held ap as
tho triend of the protective policy, yet you
cannot find a vote ho over gave, or a speech
ho ever made, wherein he lavorcd tha doc-

this subject is that which i made years

Let ui exainino tho position of Mr, Ham
lin a littlo further. In 1855, a proposition
was made-in the Senate of the United
States to remit for three years tho pay
mcnt of Duties upon railroad iron iu bond
at the custom house. Our Senators, IV cssrs
Biglcr and'lirodhcad, fought that bill day
by day and inch by inch. ilr. Jirodnead
boldly and fearlessly charged upon South
em men and Now England manufacturers
a combination to strike down tho iron in
tcrests of Pennsylvania. Mr. Hamlin,
then a United States Senator, aroio and
inquired of Mr. Broadhcad what he mcatit
by that declaration, " for," said ho, " I
am a groat deal of a free-trade man my
self, and I intend to voto for this bill.''
And he did voto for it !
Let me give you another instanco illus
trating tho iusiuccrity of that party on
this question of tho tariff. Under the
tariff of 1840, although our manufacturers
langnMicd, still they lived. Tho laborers
received employment though their wages
wero not as remunerative as they ought
to have been, becauso tho prohts ot tho
manufacturers wero greatly diminished.
But in 1857 a bill was passed which still
further reducod the tariff of 184.fi How
was that bill pas?od I Mr. Banks, of
Massachusetts, was then Speakor of the
House, a Rcpub'ican of tho vory blackest
dye. Laughter and applausu On tho
organization of the Houso, ho appointed a
Republican Committee of Ways and
Means. That conunittoo reported tho
till ot 18J7 a bill mora destructive to
our industrial interests than any that ever
passed the Congress of the United States a
bill that affords no protection at all to the
manufacturing interests of Pennsylvania.
now was that but passed! There were
htty-bix licpubucan votes cast m its lavor,
and it passed tho House ol licprescnta
tives. Going to the Senate, it was amen
tied and sent back to tho House. Tho
amendments wero not concurred in, and
tho bill was sent to a committee of con
ference, whom Mr, Speakor Banks ap
pointed on the part of the Houso. Did he
appoint a singlo man who was in favor of
tne protective policy i ino, not one. The
members of that committee were Lewis D.

sachusetts, and Mr. Letcher of Virginia

That committee, jointly with the Senato
committee, reported that bill, and it was
passed. It is now the law of the land,
and wbilo it remains tho law, let mo say,
your manufacturing interests never will
revive. They cannot revive. Moro than
that, William II. Seward, tho captain of
the Republican party, was a member of
that committee of conference, and signed
Now, gentlemen, I wish you to under
stand my views upon tho subject. I said
before that there can bo no tariff benefi
cial to our industrial interests, which docs
not proceed upon the principle of specific
duties. The meaning of that is this : If a
ton of foreign iron is imported, it pays us
so many dollars anu so many cents, accor
ding to tho specifio principle, but accord
ing tho ad valorem principle, it pays so
much per cent upon tho value of the article
abroad, according to tho foreign invoice.
Under this specifio principle tho American
manufacturer has exactly what'be wants
steadiness in the market, steadiness in the
duty which he does not havo under tha
ad valorem principle. You will observe
that tho act of 1857 proceeds entirely up
on the ad valorem principle. The duty
is levied upon ihe prico of tbo foreign ar
ticle abroad. When that price is hinh. the
