DAVID STANTON,, of Bearer. - EOR SURVKYOK GENERAL I Col. EGBERT B. BEATE, of Schnylkilh "Mulatto l)emoi:racy'' i the neat ami e'egant name coined by the straight-out Democrats for the ''new departure" innova tion. Ahem ! The ballot is everywhere protected by the liepuLHcdns ; but it is debased by the De mocracy to the worst uses, and denied to thousand of good citizens. It is said that France is actually and se riously agitating armed intervention in favor cf the Pope. It cannot 'be possible that the government has a thought of anything eo in.ane. The noble army of Democrats is gettine very much confused and mixed in Pennsyl vania on the "new departure" movement. Howevar, it is always difficult to execute the order "about face" under fire. Republicanism in the United States is the evnibol of economy, public faiih, and civilization. Its candidates aie pledged to all these fundamental ideas, and no citizen who deirjs t3 see them maintained will vote against those candidates. The Washington Reporter says: The average sentiment c.f the Democracy in this cunr.ty is the average sentiment of the parly throughout the whole Commonwealth. Iloir many member of the organization here subscribe to the declaration of the ninth resolution? We venture to assert not one in a hundred. The Pie says: No event of modern times has so thrilled the popular heart as the attack of the New York mob upon the Protestant Irishmen last Wednesday. In poaie respects it resembles the indignation that followed the attack upon the old flag at FortSumpter in April of 1SG1. It Is the living and the bloody proof of the danger to free institutions of the controlling party in New York. Democract loves the old amendments to the Constitution as little as the new. The f rst article if amendment to the Constitu tion provides.: "Cmjrress shall make no Jaw respefiing an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise then-id ; or abridging the freedom of sjH:eeh or r,f the preR ; or the right of the people peacfa'Jy tn astcmhfr and to fit it ion for a re I rest of yrirrnaces." General MTashless, Democratic can l:date !r Auditor General, while on a vi-;it t Nonistuwn a few days since, gave orders to the Democracy there to destroy nil their old banners, tr3tiparei.cies. mottoes and de vices heretofore u-ei. and new ones be pro- ! cured. It "h said an ff.T was made to the j old "Wide Awake club for the use ot theirs, but was rt fu-ed. Oh. where tell me where lias the - white man a party'' gone ? The Piu.-lurg Onutle says : Allegheny county promises well for Republicanism in xt full. The ranks were never more thorough ly united. Nothing exists to mar the har mony of the party, and an old fiohio'icd majority of ten thousand may be safely counted upon. If our Republican friends in other sections do their share of the work and hold their own, we can safely count on the State being all right lor at leiiat iweuty , thousand majority. The effort of the World to ridicule the Orangemen and their procession, is a sure index of the thraldrom under which it is weighed down by the mob o New York that mob which recently made the city wild with their orgies, and caused its strei Is to run with the blood of freemen. It is the acknowledged head and front of Democracy j in the United States, anil it. bowed bo fore I .... .. ..... .i i -n , I its masters, the scum, and villainy and su perstition of the class on whom it depends for the votes to sustain its party. The Democrats of the New Hampshire Senate recently fil'e,'. a vacancy with a man they supposed to be a Labor Reformer and of cour.-e prepared to vote the Democratic ticket straight. But it now turns out that he is a Republican, and flatly refuse. to give the Democrats any aid or comfort whatever. Ihis brings the parties in the Senate six to fix, and the redisricting of the State so as to give the Democrats the next House can not beeffectei. norean they help themselves as heretofore by the ejection or sonic Re publican member. They stand bound, and if the new member proves true, Democratic Uii-chief is checkmated. TltorSA.vns of Dejuocrats, says the Pres. accustomed to denounce what they call ''Radical Rale" ctood appalled before tbe stupendous arrogance of the men who now dominate the Democratic party in New York and aspire to dominate the nation. Grown ta colossal dimensions upon thc nioney wrun from an overtaxed and plun dered people, these men boldly assail the right. of citizen far better than themselves.

Eiot in New York. . , Never, since the bloody riots of ISM, ha3 the city of New York been in such a perfect blaxe of excitement, as On Wednesday, July 12th. For many days the proposed Orange parade, and the counter "target excursion" of the Irish Catholics, have been almost the 8 )Ie topics of conversation throughout the city, tije opinion being unanimous that a dreadful conflict was inevitable, unless the ) protection of the police and military author ities were thrown around the Orangemen, the nature and objects of whose Society have been misspprelien'U'd in many quar ters. It has bt-eri custoinarr for the various lodges ,of tbe Order to hold tin annual par ale onibo 12th of July, the anniversary of tbe bsiile of the Boyr.e. Last year, during the ceieLration, it will be remembered, a brulai attack was made upon timie members of the Order, their wives at d children, by a number of workmen employed on the Boulevard, and receiving pay from the city. Mayor llali had issued a proclamation forbidding the procession, but Gov. Huff man being appealed to issued a proclama tion setting forth that all oititixetis in this country had the right peaceably tJ assemble, and that he would give the necessary pro tection to the Orangemen if they were in terfered with. Early in the morning of the twelfth the Orangemen gathered around their headquar ters, corner ot Twenty-ninth street and Eighth uTt'!iue,from which point the proves sion was to start, to the numbe? of about two hundred, with a few women. Nearly ull the tucti were armed with revolvers and swords. Foni this time till ten o'clock the police were bustling about and assembled under their captains to the number of 1,500 and were tent in detachments to the locali ties where trouble was most likely to occar. At 11:15 A. M., the riot commenced. The mob had collected 3.1)00 strong at Prince street with an officer at their head brandish ing a "word. lie swore to his mnn that they should fellow him and he would get them arms. The colonel of the COlli ltegiment had bin men under arms although not au thorized by (Jen. Shaler. At noon the 7th Regiment with fixed buyouts, under Gen. Shaler, attacked and dispersed 140 Third street rioters without loss: The C'Jth Regiment's armory with a large number of arms was attacked and captured by rioteis. Tbe scldiers were ordered to tire on the mob several bodies of which were perambulating the streets. At Twenty-sixth street the 9th Regiment charged the mob with Osed bayonets. Seve ral persons were killed and wounded, among them one woman. Colonel Fi.-k was shot through the ankle. Between Twenty fifth and Twenty-sixth streets the mob fired three shots at the pro cession. The military returned the fire, killing eight and wounding thirteen. Two bjys and a lady were shot. Sixteen citizens aud three so'Jieis were killed. Coming down the avenue at the corner of Twenty thirl street., the fcUth Regiment lired uoon the mob, ki'd ng and wounding twelve. One policeman was s.het deal. The number of killed and wounded is stated at S:J killed and 0! wounded. This brief account aiTorJ.; but a very faint idea of the real state of affairs ami extent of tbe riot. Want of room compels us to omit details, but there is no question as to die doctrines and teachings which produced the bioud-dicd ami death in New York, on Wednesday. J:: y lth, 1S71. These doc trines are the Uocirhies of modern Democ racy ; these teachings are the teachings of the wretched men elected to ofiice by Dem ocratic votes aud Democratic fsauds. Like the rebel'ioti, tl ey Were the seed from which have erown the fearful crops of proscription an I murder in the South, and the intoler ance, bigotry, and massacre in the North. We are g'a 1 to knnv that Gor. Hoffman's prompt action cheeked the rioters and saved the lives of many innocent persons. If such lawlessness was left unchecked, who can foretell the re u't? Who can gny, but that the same men who seek by violence to control the destinies of New York city, will not also try to control the destinies of this country by having the National Government subjected to their control by the same des perate means? With the past and present experience before him, who will dare to even iumate that the only safety to our free institutions rests in the people and the Republican party? Let all remember this. Tts Eintr of True Patriotism. x Hon. John Scott, at present engaged in investigating the outrages and crimes of the Ku Khix in South Carolina, while in Co lumbia was solicited io make a speech on the 4th of July. At the conclusion of his speech Mr. Scott said : 1 trust ltat "h:,t 1 oaTe "ni ' Tri" be received in the kind spirit in which it has been uttered j be com. here in the disebarte of an rffie.al duty, but I hope anil feel in uiy heart that ibe time inav torn come when every man that lires i beneath the fl.ig shall live secure, when we will j have inorj than obedience fur o'e-lieure mm are tlrtermniri. to have ana throtTgliout the length and breadth of this l.uid theie will ba freedom and recuritj for every American citizen.

The Germans who have hitherto acted with the Democrats in Ohio are now desert ing the sinking ship and declare their pur pose to support Noyes and Mueller. The New York Staats Zcitnncj, the leading Germau Democratic daily in the country, recommends its friends in Ohio to vote the Republican ticket. The Clcvelan 1 Herald says prominent German Democrats in that city declare their purpose t j vote for Noyes and Mueller.

Dear Jocknal: According to request, I will endeavor to give a few words concern ing Kansas, for the edification of the read ers of the Journal. I have just returned from a trip down the Walnut Valley, to the southern line of the State, having traveled about two hundred miles, and can therefore etve a pretty correct statement concerning crops, etc. ' This town of Florence, now about three mouths old, has about 50J to COO iuhabi taots, is situated at the confluence of Cot tonwood River and Doyle Creek, on the. Atchison, Topeka fc Santa Fe Railroad, (J7 miles south west of Topeka, in Marion county, which is considered one of the best counties, in the State for stock raisins, and farming comb ned. The valleys are very fertile, producing as high as 52 bushels of wheat to the acre, several parties this year having harvested 44 bushel per acre, and bad bread baked of flour from new wheat on the forrteenth dm of June.. Corn this year is doing very well; the crop will aver age from 40 to 75 bushels per acre on sod ground. Rye and oats also yield abund antly. In regard to the drouth, many erroneous impressions exist. According to the state ments of old residents, of 14 and 15 years' experience, there have been but two or three very dry summers, and the rest were very good years for crops. The character of the soil is such that if there should be but little rain, it retains its moisture fcr a veiy longtime, and crops thrive splendidly- This year, according to my own experience, we have had rather too much rain. As to the climate, it is useless to speak, for it is ac knowled by all to be the most equable of any portion of our country. During the summer months the sun shines very fervent ly, in fact, wyuld be almost unbearable, were it not tor t lie cool and refresfung breeze that is almost continually blowing. In the winter months, cattle are herded aud grazed without shelter, many persons put ting up uj hay, while others cure from one fourth to one-half ton per head, no grain of any kind being used. Ot what are known as the Osage lands, which lie to tbe sooth of us, vast improve ments have been made. These lands were brought into market, (subject to pre-emption in tracts not exceeding one hundred aud sixty acres, at one dollar and a quarter per acre to actual settlers only) about two years since, but in traveling over this vast tract one would imagine it to be an old-settled country. For a distance of sixty miles you will find farms being made on every hand ; you can always be in sight of a set tlement, aud in some localities, 3'ou can sec from sixty to one hundred farm houses dot ted over the prairie. Many have their farms tenced, and many others are fencing, while some sow their ssed without any pro tection from stock, save that afforded by herding. Quite a number of towns have sprung up, which contain from 100 to H00 inhabitants, and where settlers can buy goods as cheap as in the Eastern States. The people are from every State in the l7iiion, and are perfect representatives of American life and energy ; they are intelli gent, ind'.Mtriotn, and eudowed with any quantity of "push," and are determined that with the superior advantages Kansas has, it shall not be many years before she stands, not otiTy as one of the first, but the very first State in the Union, for agricultur al purposes. Many broad acres are yet awaiting claim ants, ani no-.v is the time for all who are de sirous of changing locations, to come to Kansas, and take your choice of farms. Another year's immigration like the pres ent, will render it difficult to find choice farms at the disposal of Uncle Sam. Lest I become tedious, I will reserve farth er remarks for a future communication, should this one hi deemed worthy of inser tion ia the coluuius of the Journal. Charlie. News Prom Other Counties.

When young men profess to be mem bers in good standing of temperance organita tiuns, it does not look well to see them slyly ob taining pitchers of beer from neighboring sa loons. The mudholes, in our ally, emit perfume abundantly, but it does not smell as sweet as etto of roses.

Articles of ladies dresi do not look well on gentlemen, as a general thing, but we must say that a certain -legal gentleman wandering along the banks of tbe 'placid' Susquehanna, on a moonlight night, with a thin, white shawl thrown ever his shoulders, made s picture worthy the pencil of a Central Park artist." History of the War in Europe. The recent war between Germany and France aroused so much intersst on tire part of our people, that it was generally supposed at tbe time, that the earliest and best history of that great struggle, would be from the pen of an American author. The National Publishing Co., of Philadelphia, have just issued a very complete and valuable history, bearing the above title. It is from the pen of Mr. James D. McCabe, Jr., and is a handsomely bound volume of 800 octavo pages, illustrated with 150 maps, portraits, battle scenes, views of prominent localities, etc. It is written in a bold, vigorous style, and will, unquestionably, take rank as the Standard history of the struggle by an Am erican" writer. Sir. McCabe, has evidently etuJied his sul jeet deeply, for he writes as an historian, and not as a politician, as one who places facts on Tecorl for the verdict of future ages, and not as one ho seeks to win the favor of cither the Germans or the French of to-day. The great charm of tbe work is its impartiality, its absolute fidelity to truth. His book facinates while it in struets, for it tells in graphic and eloquent language, the most wonderful st-jiy o? mod ern times, lie traces the causes oi tne war from their origin down to the beginning of hostilities ; set forth the diplomatic history of the prelude to the war, with clearness ; and states forcibly, and in detail the causes of the triumph of Germany and the failure of France. The low price at which the bonk is issued, brings it within the reach of all, and no one wishing to keep abreast of the times should fail to read it. It is pub lished in both English and Gcrmsn, sold by subscription only, and agents are wanted in every county.
