The Philadelphia Bulletin, prefers very
grave charges against the Pennsylvania
State Agent who was charged with the col
lection of our war claims against the United
States Government. It openly charges that
he is a defaulter to the amount of $.!C5,000
due the State. The matter shouid be thor
oughly investigated by the proper authori

Nearly all the gold sent East from San
Francisco row comes through the mail bag
put up in small boxes weighing from two
to three pounds each, and each box sent as
a registered letter. The reason fi r this is a
very substantial one. In the mail the cost
of transportation is about one per cent.,
while the express companies charce five. It
is .stated that about one hundred thousand
dollars in gold pass daily through the Oiua
The Germans of New York arc becoming
daily more pronounced and emphatic iu their
repudiations of the Democratic ring. Not
a few who have lone; been identified with
the party are renouncing their allegiance.
The condemnation which the Staats Ziit
vng expresses is significant of their restive
ness. Many of them have for some time
been conscious that the association was
neither proGtable nor honorable to them,
fcnd the recent developments have enforced
the wisdom of entire ly cutting loose.
The Kentucky election was a solid Re
publican triumph. Democratic protesta
tions to the contrary notwithstanding. The
f ict that the Republican vote has been near
ly doubled, while that of the Democracy is
increased but very slightly, is a substantial
gain. Eighty thousand Republicans to a
hundred and fifteen thousand Democrats
is a much better showing than thirty thou
sand Republicans to a hundred thousand
Democrats. We have a party in Kentucky
now, instead of a fragment of voters.
The Baltimore American asks the ques

and then states that the printing firm of
Messrs. Kelley & Piet were paid f rVKX) for
printing five -hundred copies and plans for
the improvement of Jones' Falls, a job
which could have been done at a fiir profit
for $1,482. Baltimore is under Democratic
government, and the printing was ordered
bv the First Branch of the City Council.
The Second Branch did not concur, but
nevertheless the work was done and paid
for, giving the contractors a clear profit of
$4,518. Thus we invariably find corruption
and extravagance wherever Democracy
The crisis in Indian affairs in this court
try is evidently near at hand. What to do
with the Red Man is a question which must
be settled very soon. Reports from the
Northwest show that the fighting Indians,
driven from the region traversed by the Pa
cific Railroad, are concentrated just south
of the line of the British possessions. Gen.
Sheridan seems to think they will ueed more
intimidation more killing probably. And
Gen. Hancock wants to know if the govern
ment Ls to feed these tribes crowded up
against the frontier. The present polic,- of
the povernaietit would appear to he to drive
the Indians together, here they can cx
terminate each other.

Below we publish a circular, issued by the
Chairman of the Democratic State Commit
tee, which we copy from the Harrisburg Tel

Democratic State Committee Rooms,
Clearfield, Pa., July 17th, 1871. Dear
Sir ; I address you as an earnest and active
Democrat. The present contest is one of
great importance, and its result will be po
tent inl upon the Presidential clecti6n of next
year. The tide is in our favor, and the ex
travagance, misrule and nurroism of the
enemy are silently but surely destroying
them. Notwithstanding this they possess
the spoils aud offices, and will make a des
perate struggle to hold them.
We can and will heat them, if onr efforts
are seconded everywhere b men like your
self. Vtctorj must be icon by tcork. We
will do our utmost, but we cannot will unless
our ellorts are supported, and the work per
fected in every locality. The responsibility
iu reality is upon the earnest men ol the
people-, and to .them will belong the honors
of the triumph. . .
The secret of success is attention to details.
It is for you and those you cat! around ou
to work out these details in your locality.

If this be done, our majoriti will be vera
larije. Now is the time to begin the work.
l' not wait lor your associates. Go at it
yourselt, and tbey will follow.
See tiat even Democrat is reaixtered.
See that no fraudulent names are put on the
lists. P art down suspected names, aud
trace out the fraud. They will commit any
fraud that will get them a-vote. and then
prate about honesty. Make out your lists
of reliablu Democrats, hopeless Radicals,
and doubtful men. Go over those lists and
compare them with the rcgi.-try, and verify
and correct them. One will be a cheek up
on the other. Bring influences to bear upon
the doubtful men : use every fair argument
to convert them. Set before them the char
acters and records of our candidates. Both
are spotless and above attack. Give me the
names of doubtful men in your district, as
'yon can, but do not neglect Democrats in
order to attend to this. Let your ffreat oh

this the gieat end oi all that you do.
Ascertain at once who need to be natural
ized, and give it attention now. Do not
wait until September. The prudent man
acts promptly if he wishes to attcin his ob
ject. This work can be done now quietly
and effectively, and everything on our side
made to move without a jar or contest. Do
this first, and then devote yourselves to
fighting your antagonists. Call to your aid
young men of the party. They are the best
arm with which to strike. They will work
with energy, and will be encouraged by your

Mr. W ai'aee, wo are glad to observe,
gives some very excellent advice to his friends
in this circular. He says, "Victory must
"be won by work." "The secret of success

We have regarded the New York Sun
as rather Democratic than Republican in its
leanings yet it speaks as follows of the po
litical prospect in this State : "Two months
ago no f-.iture event was more probable than
ihe success of the Dcinocra-ic party in the
October election in Pennsylvania. That'
prospect ha now been changed, and the Re
publicans are likely to carry the State by a
sufficient if not a large majority. This re
markable change is not due to any diminu
tion of the feeling of aiitagn;u.,ni tovard
President Grant and his administration.
The question has been settled in Penn
sylvania by the riot o!' July 12, in New
Yoik city and the circumstances which pre
ceded and attended that event. These
things have excited a feeling among the
people of t lie State which no party organi
zation can withstand. The conduct of the
Tammany managers in this ciiy on that
memorable occasion has lost Pennsylvania
to the Democracy." We do not accord in
the view of the Sun that Pennsylvania was
ever sure to the Democracy, but the fact

The city of Raleigh, North Carolina, was

which was of the most frightful and ludic

Showing the Difference in the Condition of

The Democrats had an almost unbroken
rule in Pennsylvania from 1850 to 1860,and
the Republicans have been in power most
of the time from I860 to 1871. The record
made by these parties, within those periods,
in the management of the finances of the
State, is a fair test by which to try them.
The State debt on the 1st of Itecembcr,
1S.W, and on the same date of thn ten years
following, is given in the follow ing table,
compiled from the anuual reports of the
Auditor General :
State debt Dec. 1, 1850 $40,775,485 42
" " 1K5I 40,114.236 39

" . " 1859 38.1.38,961 07
" " 1800 37,909,847 50
It will be seen from this table that the
State debt remained above forty millions
some years increasing and in others decreas
ing slowly until 1S5C, when the Democrat
ic ascendancy began to be shaken. The
pu'.dic works were sold in 1857, in 1858 the
Republicans carried the House, in 1S59 they
carried both House and Senate, and in 1S0O
they elected the Governor and a majority io
During these ten years the ruling party
had the benefit of the revenue from the
State tax on real and personal estate, and
the tax on tonnage on the Pennsylvania
railroad. The revenue from these two
sources, during the decade referred to, was
as follows :
Tonnage Tax. Stite Tax.
1851 $9,514 71 fl.372,170 37
1852 21,270 65 i. 359,636 20

1860 31,425 15 1,444,674 93
Total revenue from these
sources in ten years, $16,161,381 94
And yet, with all this revenue, and $300,
000 additional paid in three installments,
185S, 1859 and 1800, by the Pennsylvania
railroad in redemption of its binds, given
in purchase of the public works, the public
debt remained aliuo.-t unchanged for six
years, and was finally reduced in the follow
ing four years, but a trifle, as these figures

Or an average of about $280,000 a year.
Shortly after the Republicans came fully'
into possession of the State government in
1861, they were confronted with the neces
sity of arming the troops of the State'called
out to suppress the rebellion and to put the
the negotiations of the war lean of 1861.
They therefore commenced their' decade
with a debt of over forty millions, asfol
lows : ' -
State debt Dec. 1, 1860 $37,069,847 50
War loan ot 1861 3,500,000 00
Total $41,469,847 50
The tonnage tax was repealed in 1861,
and subsequently, in February, 1866, the
three mill tax on real estate wis repealed,
so that these large resources of revenue en
joyed by the Democrats were cut off from
their successors, the annual ' payment into
the Sinking Fund by the Pennsylvania rail
road being increascc", by the repeal of the
tonnage tax, from $100,000 to $400,000 an
nually. With the tonnage tax repealed since 1SC1,
and the three mill tax abolished since 1865,
the Republican administration of the State
has still managed to reduce the public debt
more than one-fourth. A statement pub
lished, officially, by the Commissioners of
the Sinking Fund, shows the public debt,
July 1, 1871, to be as follows :
RECAPITULATION pP Pl'BIJC DEBT.
Debt bearing coin interest $1,507,300 00
Debt bearing interest in U. S.
currency 24,782,445 30
Debt on whi h interest has
been stopped 155,976 36
Debt bearing no interest 100,866 05
Total debt July 1, 1871 $29,540,587 71

LiGnTMNO played some queer atid rather
disagreeable pranks in and about the house
of Sylvester Preston, 'at Atrim. N. H., last
week. After setting a bed in the; L part on
fire, and tearing out the north tide of the
house, one current passed to the barn, where
a horse was killed and the ground plowed
up. Another current went through tha sit
ting room, took off the top of a table at
which two ladies were sitting, and tossed it
half way cross the room, without injuring
the women, threw the looking glass into a
bed room opposite, then went out between
the windows, tearing the woodwork com
pletely away, and whirling one of tha ladies
from the sitting room through the parlor,in
a maimer which she said seemed like flying.
A CURIOCS observer states that the Call
fornix ani xattuif secUieeker, in storing its
provisions for winter use, digs a small rom.j
hole in the bark of the pine or oat, and
into these inserts an acorn so tightly wedged
in as to be with difficulty extracted. The
lark of the pine tree, when thus 'filled,
presents at a short distance the appearance
of being studded with brass headed nails.
Stowed away in large quantities in this
manner, the acorns not only supply the
wants of the woodpecker, but the squirrels,
mice and jays avail themselves likewise of
the fruits of provident labor.
During the late Franco-German war a
cross was placed over a grave in a cemetery
near the battlefield at Worth, bearing the
inscription: "Here repose three brave com
rades." Germans and French regarded the
grave as tho resting place ot three brave
fellows who had fought and died together.
But recently the crosa disappeared, and the
people learned that a Frenchman, relying
upon the immunity accorded to a grave.had
placed some choice wine instead of "three
brave comrades" in the cemetery. .
The disaster at the Piltston mines adds
another to the list of terrible accidents from
badly ventilated mines. It is not known at
this time how many deaths lave occurred,
but it is entirely probable that all who were
in the mine at the time of the explosion
perished. Tbe question of preventing ex
plosions in mines evidently needs closer at
tention than it has thus far received.
The Postal Conference now in session at
Berlin has just made an excellent suggestion.
It is that treaties should be entered into by
the European and American powers for the
purpose of establishing uniform rates of
postage regardless of distance. Combine
this arrangement with cheap ocean postage,
and it would be one of the most beneficial
reforms that could be established.
The remarks of visitors at Saratoga who
