ltii therefore matter of congratulation,
and our lricuds should take heart accord
ingly. On tho other hand it is equally clear
that the abolition vote in tho State is a
fpuriou3 oue, got tip for tho occasion. If
it is not, let then show it by going and
filling up tho army which is to continue a
vigorous prosecution of this war, Tho
forced or fraudulent increase of tho aboli
tion vote is apparent by reference to threo
or four localities. Tho abolition increaso
in Allegheny County is G3?5 ovor last

in Eiie county 2001. Wo might refer
to others, but it is cnou-h for our pur
pose ; and it proves, either that tho aboli
tionist never went to the war at all, or all who wont, and more too, waro nl
lowed to come home to voto for Curtiu, or
that the increase is fraudulent. It may
bo, and is in part all three for tho in

population and previous polls.

To the bravo and true men of Pennsy

of Ocl iber as a day of redemption from a
tyranny the most hateful and a corruption
the mot disgraceful, tho roiiilt of thi
day would Ire a most bitter disappoint
ment With leaders the bravest and
truest, and with an earucstuess, Fpirit and
eonttaucy that neve- beloro lulled to ln

they bow to the decree of fato. Thoy
knew thoy deserved success, they feel that
they earned it; hut it has eluded their ef
forts and disappointed their hopes. The;
have done their duty ; they havo tried lo
avert the ruin of their country, hut in
vain. The dcstro er must siill pursue de
struction, and the suffering must sutler
mill, llut why is this? Many causes
contributed to briiir it nbout. Among
them fraud, lalschood anil corruption stand
piomiucut. For the common honor of
our country, and tho character of repub
lican principles ami institutions, wo are
borry to admit this, but it is certain! v true,
And tho truth had better be known, that
tho people may consider on what a sandy
foundation their liberties rest, and either
apply tho corrective in time or quietly sink
iuto the condition of slaves, lo which they
seem fait tending. If the election last

v.e should not say a word. I5ut it was
not. Tho Uepublieans boasted that they

for Curtiu 1
If the soldiers had been treated fairly,
and had beeu I'urioughed without disciim
iuatiou to come hon.o and vote, we would
not complain. Uut whilo in tho army
Democratic documents were excluded from
them ; they were lied into tho belief that
Democrats wcro their foes ; ttill this was
not sufficient. Uut as tho election ap
proached, Democrats wero retained in the
licld and Republicans futloughed. This
is no bunuositioii, but a fact that is well
An intanee coma to our own
knowledge. We had the statement from
tho father himself, and no man Mauds
higher for truth in our county, llo told
us that one of his boys he has two in tho
army wrote to him, saying that ho was
offered a furlough, if ho would eomo homo
and vote for Curtiu. This as an honest
man ho could not do, and staid ; while his
biother, a Republican got, a twenty days'
furlough, and came home to voto the Rep
ublican ticket. This is a single instance,
but it shows tho deep injustice done tho
Democratio soldiers as well as tho Demo
cratic citizens. In many districts iu this
county too, persons wcro allowed to vnti
who wero not oua.ified. JSonic were nut
assessed, and .-ouie had never paid taxes;
while others had no rcsideuco. But it was
much worse oven this in some other places.

How Governor tiji iifi was Elected.
Every day brings us not only reports
and ground of suspicion that frauds of
the most astounding charaoter wcro per
petrated by tho Aboltitonists at tho lato
election, but cvideuco going to show that
their success was owiug to such means
ontiroly. In tho city of Pittsburg thoy
had full sway. Their majority was enor
iuoub, tho iuorcaeo of their voto unproco-
dentod, That the ballot-box was tamper-'
cd with, is too mild a charge. Thcso on
omics of libcaty actually disfranchised
numbers of citizens, not by preventing
their voting, or going through tho form of
it, but actually by suppressing their votes.
In tho First ward of that city, one hun
drcd andjifty-stven men voted for Gcorgo
W. Woodward, who substanliato the fact
by their oaths, (and how many moro voted
that way wo do not know,) whilo tho re
turn mado by tho election officers gives
Woodward but 78 votes, Ono other in
stance. In tho county of Bradford, an
other of their strongholds, tho vote for
Governor was 0,079. According to tho
last report of tho Kovonuo Commissioners,
Bradford county has 9,882 taxables ; of
this list it Bcems that only 209 an; not vo
ters, which is preposterous. Wo havo,
from all parts ol tho State, proofs of simi

a fair investigation could be bad in every
election district, il could bo proved that
George W. Woodward Was elected Gov

Treatment of tho Croup.
A "Physician's Wife," at Carrol Co.,
Illinois, writes to the American Agricul
turist: "Croup gives warning in advance
and woe to tho mother who fails to hoed
that warning. Last Sunday morning the
good of the sermon was lost to me by tho
dry hacking croup cough of a little boy in
one ot the front seats. As tho setmon
progressed ths coughing grow deeper and
harder, and I thought the services would
never get through. A mother iu front of
me clutched nervously at her shawl every
time the little fellow coughed, as if she
would fain pull it off and wrap it around
the child. There he sat with a low ncck
eil jacket on the throat, and part of the
chest exposed and ; tho sight of a
corpse would hardly havo chilled mo more,
I was a stranger to tho lady who sat be
sido him, but learned it was his mother.
'Do you know your child has got the
croup I' said a woman as she came up the
aislo. 'Yes, ho was croupy last night,'
she replied quietly. 'Why don't you tie
some thing round his neck then V said tho
friend, 'and if you want to save his li.o,
give him an emetic when you got home ;
rub liniment on his throat and chest, and
get him iu a perspiration, keep him warm
for a day or two and give him light diet.'
Tho mother passed out and I hope she
followed the directions. 'Why is it ? 1
inquired of the frieud. 'O, it' Mrs. 15.,

There is no disease more simple to euro

A correspondent of tho Providence Jour
nal Touches for tho efficacy of ico as a
euro for diptheria, croup and all ordinary
iuflamation of tho throat. Tho manner
of application is as follows :
''Break up a small lump of ico in n towel
and put the pieces in a bowl. Take posi
tion slightly inclined backwards, either on
a chair or on a sofa. Proceed for half an I
hour with a teaspoon to feed yourself with
small lumps of ico, letting them dissolve
slowly in the back part of tho if outh or
tho entrance of tho throat. A single such
application will often break up a common
soro throat, which otherwise would havo
a course of two or threo days. In caso of
a bad sore throat, use tho ico frequently
and freely. Iu case of ulceration or dip
theria, keep a small lump of ico constantly
in the mouth.''

with plcpbacite, was seized with it and as ; ied for tho Union, aud overwhelmed tho
ho could not immediately attend, owing to
tho severity of theoase, another physician
wa3 called in, who ortlercd emetics and
aluminous garble, whieh produced no ef
fect. At lenjith Dr. Do Grand caino and
found tho tonsils gratoly swollen, and a
false membrane covering them. Ho iiunio-
diatuly administered small pieces of ice,
and by the following morning tho tumo
faction of the tonsil? had diminished by
half, and tho false membrane had nearly
disappeared. That very ovening sho was
enabled to take food. Profiting by this
example, a few days after her brother was
seized with sore throat, presenting the 1
same preliminary symptoms ai thoso of 1
his sister, but he without waiting for tho
doctor, took somo ice, and was rid of his ,
soro throat in a few hours. Somo days
later Dr. De Grand was summoned toa
young lady who had been laboring under
tho disease for somo forty-eight hours, all
romedies had failed, and the parents, re
lations and friends of the family wens ,
plunged in the deepest sorrow. When
Dr. Do Gradd
ordered ice, a general cry
of astonishment was uttered by all present
Ico for a soro throat 1 Impossible. It
was sheer murder 1 Dr. De Grand main- i
tained his ground, and after much expos- ;
tulation, during which time was lost, he
obtained his end. Beforo twenty-four
hours wcro over, tho patient was in full ,
convalescence. Being at Vera Cruz on a !
mission, lie was requested to see a young i
man who was attacUcu with malignant
soro throat, and had been treated without
effect by cauterization with hydroehlsric
acid and astringent gargle3. Here, again,
he had to battlo with the prejudices of tho
family, but at length allowed to adminis
ter ice. Tho young man recovered in the
course of tho following day. Ooetor De
Grand has now been using this remedy
for tho last twelve years, without having
met with a single failure.

Gonoral Buoll.
It is understood that tho Court of In
quiry in tho caso of Qon. Buoll has aoquit
tcd that officer of all tho charges brought
against him. This result will be received
with tho utmost satisfaction by all who
nro cognizant of tho merits of the caso,
Especially West of tho Allcghonlcs, whero
tho character and military career of Gen.
Uuell arc more intimately known than iu
the East, his acquital will bo hailed with
tho liveliest satisfaction, as the vindicatim
or justification tardy though it bo of ft
much maligned soldier. Gen, Bucll had
tho misfortunes to be one of tho victims
sacrifice to tbo nation's ovra incxperieno of
war. It is tho old story that appears so
often in tho histories of all dcmocraoioi
suddenly plunged into war. Such men
tho Greeks exiled, and then raised monu
ments to their memory ; such men Revo
lutionary Franco sent to the guillotine, and
afterwards transferred their ashes to tho
Pantheon ! Wo hope American history
will never be blotted with such acts. It is
hard enough to submit, ah General Btlcll
has had to do, for more than a year, to
public suspicion and malico. and the slings
and arrows of an outrageous lortuno. Tho
revenges of time come round, however
a court of his peers has has cleared him of
every charge that ignorance or malico
brought against him. Wo now sincerely
trust that a field will bo assigned to Gen.
Buell where his great military talent will
havo full scope.

at the head ol tho War Department aa
"foes. ut course no ono will supposo
Mr. Stauton to bo so crazy as to want his
I "foes" in the military service of tho Uni
ted States. It is a dangeious situation
for enemies to occupy. Therefore, if Mr.
Stanton has any pretensions to truth and
candor, he will immediately issue an order
to each Conscription Board in Pennsylva
nia, commanding them to "put tho har
ness on nono but 'loyal' men, (thoso who
voted for Curtin,) and exempt all "foes,"
(those who voted for Woodward.) If Mr.
Stanton fails to do this, ho will stand bo

"no court martial is necessary" in tlio caso
of Gen. Milroy, will bo remembered
last summer abandoned his artillery More
and munitions of war, to the Confederates'
at Winchester, and, as tho wholo country
believes, shamefully abandoned them. So
wc go, Ah Glellun saves tho capital to bo
deposed. Bucll, at Shiloh, turns disaster
into victory., and hurls Bragg's legions out
of Kentucky to bo court martia'led.
Thei-o men nro soldiers, gallant soldiers,
aud gentlemen but thoy arc Democrats.
Milroy is not FUfpccted to possess any of
the qua.itics ; but he as a radical, and of
the exterminating stamp. Twenty-five or
thirty pieces of artillury, thousands of pris
oners and a great amount of stores wcro
lost at Winchester, aud Milroy was in com
mand; But Mr. Lincotu decides that no
oue is to blame, and he is the commaudor-in-chicf.
