The "Mob Partv," is the new name
by which the Democracy arc known in
many sections of the country.
If ths creait of the Government is
to be maintained, the Republican party
inu.it be perpetuate !. Democratic vic
tory will hasten national repudiation,
after which comes goner; 1 bankruptcy.
The Canadian authorities arc ac
co.ni io dating themselves to the terms
of the new treaty, by proposing to ad
mit American fishermen to the privi
leges specified, even before the final
ratification of that instrument.
Tue party which gave birth to rebel
lion, and encouraged traitors to arm
for the dissolution of the Union, is not
fit to be trusted with the management
of the Government. Such is the opin
ion of two-thirds of the intelligent vo
ters of Pennsylvania.
The Tittsburg D!palcli says : "It
is palpable that the greatest harmony
and energy will prevail this campaign,
an 1 ths Il.-publiean party will show
in the ensuing election just what its
strength is. The result we promise,
will be a grand victory, the moral of
which will be that the country will be
triumphantly swept in 1S72 by the
Republican party, with Grant at its
Every man who makes his livin at
a forge fire, a rolling mill, a furnace, or
in any manufactory whatever, should
not forget that the Democratic leaders
and organs in Pennsylvania are the
out-spoken advocates of free trade, by
which all such workmen are to be brot'
to r, level with the pauper labor of the
Old World. Votes for Democratic
candidates are voices in favor of the
reduction of the wages of American
President Grant has been formal
ly proposed for renomination by the
Republicans of New Orleans. There
never before was such a general una
nimity of sentiment in a party regard
ing the selection of its candidate for
the Presidency ; and nearly every Re
publican paper of the Vision acquies
ces in this wide-spread desire of the
loyal people, that the man who has been
so successful, both in war and peace,
shall be retained in the executive chair
for another four years.
There never was a party guilty of
corruption? like that which disgraces
Democratic government in New York
city. The record of the foulness there
is the mo -t disgraceful ever presented
to the consideration of the American
people, and 3-ct it is only an improve
ment on Democratic transactions when
i 1 power. The old Canal Board of
Pennsylvania, when in Democratic
hands, were in the habit of asking the
Legislature for appropriations to carry
on the public works, when it is well
known there wss business sufficient
done thereon to have paid the State
profitable dividends. The Democratic
party never could and never can rule
without corruption.
Another splendid showing is made
in the statement of Secretary IJoutwell
for July. Gradually but surely the
burden imposed on the country by the
D cuiocratic rebellion is bcin lighten-
o c
cd under the administration of the
Government by General Grant. The
reduction of the debt daring the past
month amounted to the large sum of
$,701,970, making a total decrease
since President Grant's inauguration
of over 240,000,000. Thesenontli
ly reductions are practical arguments
of the strongest kind of proof of Re
publican economy and sound financial
management. Let every voter contrast
them with the notorious and stupendous
robberies by the Democratic adminis
tration of Xew York city. The Re
publican rulers of the nation arc redu
cing both taxation and the debt. The
Democratic rulers of New York are in
creasing taxation and the city debt at
an alarming rate, and hive bsen prov
ed by their own books a set of outra
geous thieves,
Another IIoreoii. A most appal
ing disaster occurred at New York on
Sunday, afternoon, July 30th. The
Staten Island ferry-boat, WestfelJ,
was about to start on her return trip,
with over four hundred souls on board,
when her huge boiler suddenly explo
ded. Those who witnessed the disas
ter say there was first a dull, crunch
ing sound, somewhat like that made by
the fall of a large building, followed
immediately by the sharp his3 of es
caping steam. The main deck was for
ced upwards for a considerable dis
tance ; the beams and planks torn to
pieces. Many were throwi high into
the air, and fell back into the hold a
confused mass. A majority of the pas
sengers were collected on the main
deck, directly over the boiler, many of
whom were blown into the air to the
height of thirty and forty feet, falling
back into the wreck or into the water.
Soma were killed outright, others scald
ed to death, while others died from the
injuries received. Thus far the victims
number 76 killed and 117 wounded
many of the latter will yet die. The
scene after the disaster is described as
the most heartrending and sickeninir
that was ever witnessed in that city.
The cause of the explosion is yet un
known, and, perhaps, will never be as
certained satisfactorily.
"A Young Democrat" in Maine
groans at the imbecility of the Fogy
Leaders of his party, and declares that
"so long as they run the machine" the
s lid party will be beaten. For one, he
doesn't relish going every year to the
polls "to be whipped out of his boots
he has no courage, much less heart, in
such a contest." "Under such lead,"
he says, "we merely go to the ballot
box every September to have a census
taken of the Democratic party." The
poor young man wants to vote "with a
reasonable prospect of being victori
ous." Still, in spite of faction, the
party is said to be about as well united
as ever. The Hunkers have only to
snap their lingers, and the "young 'uns"
fall into line like good boys as they are.
A tl blic meeting is to be held in
New York to determine what action
shall be taken relative to the frauds
practiced by Hall, Connolly & Co. It
is thought that steps will be taken to
bring the gentlemen criminated to jus
tice, or to compel their abandonment
of the position they have so unworthily
filled. The method employed to reach
the last named result may be to call
upon them formally to resign and if
they do not, to bring to bear upon them
the power of the law. If New York
proves itself equal to the present emer
gency, it. will do it vast good for a long
time to come.
The N. Y. Sun is sarcastic in its
remarks in regard to the "Shameful
Treatment of a Poor Plasterer" by the
Comptroller. It sajs: "Wc are in

a suit against the city for a little bal
ance of between one and two hundred
thousand dollars, which the Comptrol
ler refuses to pay. Things are coming
to a pretty pas3 when a poor plasterer
is compelled to sue a great corporation
like that of New York for his hard
The Portland Press says: "Every
day the present investigation of the
Congressional Committee proceeds, it
finds abundantand cumulative evidence
of the existence and spread of these
disguised bands of outlaws known as
Ku Klux, throughout the South. Every
day the testimony of reliable men goes
to prove that any delay in the enact
ment of the legislation of last spring,
would not only hare been a grave mis
take, but criminal negligence on the
part of Congress."

There arc rumors of impending
troubles in Europe ; this time between
Austria and Russia. The apparent
friendship existing between Prussia
or rather the Empire of Germany
and Russia, would seem to indicate that
poor Austria stands a good chance of
being effectually ground up between the
upper and nether millstones.
TnE Democratic party is the first po
litical organization in this country which
has deliberately plotted to deluge a
city with the blood of a fanatical reli
gious welfare. Hence, peaceable Chris

Eepublican Forty Becord.
A brief recapitulation of the various
measures eDacted by the Republican party,
during its ten years of power, in behalf of
the cause of liberty and equal political n.d
civil rights to all men, without regard to
race or color, will be a matter of useful in
lormation to our readers at this time, and

cision as to the party they can most safely

The first blovv at the "Divine" institution
of slavery was a bill, which became a law in

July 7, 1SG2. President Lincoln approved
a bill punishing the infamous practice ot
using the American flag for the protection
of vessels engaged in the slave trade, in
open defiance, as had grown to be the prac

Under the provisions of this act cue Gordon
captured, w hile engaged in the slave trade,
was tried, convicted, and executed.

January 27, 18G5, the famous thirteenth
amendment to the Constitution, which had
previously been approved by the Senate,
passed the House of Representatives, for
ever abolishing slavery in the United States.
During this year acts were passed repeal
ing the various measures enacted by the
Southern States under Johnson's rule, de
signed to re establish slavery in another

ticeship system, the law in regard to va
grancy, and authorizing the whipping of
The same year a law was passed abolish
ing the system of peonage slavery in New.
In December,' 1865, a resolution passed

crimination against colored men in such

ident power to protect the lojal people of
the South again -it organized bands of assas
sins, and rendering the people of a country
or city, under certain conditions, responsible
for the damages doue therein by these out
laws. Such, briefly," are the leading measures
adopted by a -Republican Congress, and
sanctioned and sustained by the Repub'ican
party, for securing to the colored people of
the nation the boon of liberty and the right
of equal American citizenship.
As a "companion-piece" to this long list
of acts in the interest of justice and human
ity, we ought, perhaps, to publish the record
of the Democratic party in behalf of slavery,
wrong and outrage.
But it can hardly be necessary, at least
until the wounds inflicted upon the backs
of the four millions of ex-slaves have had
time to heal. It colored men bear no mal
ice against their Dmwratij owners, ib.3y
will not be apt to forget who fastened and
who broke their chains.
