Tug Gazette of Wednesday oontaius a
sworn statement from S. A. Davenport,
Esq., to the effect that he is sole owner of
that establishment, that in purchasing it
he acted as the agent of no man or set of
men, and that he Intends now and always
has intended, that it shall remain an or
pin of opposition to the Democratic par
ty. The publisher of the Dispateit has al
so editorially disclaimed the connection
of any outside party with his. office, and
asserts that no person but himself exer
cises any control over its columns—a
'tatement which very few who are ac
quainted with his disposition will be
likely to dispute. The assertion of Mr.
E. L. Clark, in his now famous " extra,"
that Mr. Galbraith was - the owner and
controller of all the printing offices in
Erie, is thus proved a falsehood so far as
the Gazette sod Dispatch are concerned.
It may seem hardly worth our while,
but since some . parties who do not know
Mr. Clark's nature as well u we do, may
be induced to believe his statements, we
desire to say explicitly, that Mr. Galbraith
does net own even so much se a type in
this of 1.v.,n0r in any manner, either direct
or indirect, has he any interest, aside from
that general one, which all our party
friends should entertain, in its financial
condition. Neither does he now, nor has
he at any time, exercised any " control"
or attempted to exercise any over its edi
torial coarse. That we regard him with
exceedingly warm sentiments of friend-
ship is very true, and that his opinions
like those of other leading Democrats in
the city, are held by us in great esteem.
we do not dony, but he haitoo much self
respect, and knows our independence of
spirit too well, to undertake to dictate
what we shall print or what not.
So much for the veracity of this reck
less and contemptible little mischief-ma
ker, E. L. Clark. The three fold testimo
ny of each of the newspaper proprietors
of the city convict■ him of being a bare
faced falsifier, and hereafter he wilt be
known to the public in his true character.
We make no pretensions to speak for
Mr. Gslbraith, but deem it due to him tie
state that aR the foolish, .tvrtr.t..
ambition to • become Governor, are
simple freaks of the imagination. He
dsfoes not desire that office or any other.
*ten besought by his friends to permit
them to use t his name in connection with
the Gubernatorial nomination, he has in-
variably declined the proposed honor. If
k had beenlambitious in that way, does
my one of good sense suppose he would
have declined the endorsement of our
late county convention, which was unani
mously tendered him. and promptly re
fue(gh This bandying about of the
name of an enterprising citizervwho seeks
no political favors, and is so unfortunate
as to be attached to the party ' which
could give him none if he did, seems to

that we ham seen in our newspaper ex
The telegraph furnishes us a report of
the interview which took place between
the President and a delegation of South
CarOlinians, consisting of Judge Wardlsw,
Alfred Huger, and COl. Dawson, on Fri
day afternoon. These gentlemen presen
ted memorials from the State Convention
ofSonth Carolina asking for the pardon of
M Davis, A. H. Stephens,
A. Wenholm and Governor liagrath..
Stephens and Mr. Wenholm had been re
lasted before their arrival, and the dele
gation seemed particularly anxious to ob
tain the freedom of Governor Migrath, on
the ground that helvould be influential
in securing harmony between the State
and the Federal Government. In the
course of the President's response he
said :--
"If treason has been 'committed, there
ought to be some test to determine the
Tower of the Government to punish the
crime. He was free to say that it was not
a mere contest between political parties,
or a que.tion as to the fact of Governments.
L3oking at the - government as we do—the
laws violated, and an attempt made at
the life of a nation—there should be vin
dication of the G,3vernment and the ems
titution. 'even if the pardoning- powers
were exercised thereafter. If treason has
been nominated. it ought to be determin
ed by the highest tribunal, and the feet
declared, even if clemency should come
afterwards. 'There was no malice or pre
u boe in carying out that duty."
We infer from this_ that the President
has determined that Jefferson Davis shall
be tri-d by the ! Supreme Court for the
crime of treason, and that, if he is found
guilty, the Executive clemency will be ex
ercised. Th. President assured the dele
gation that no disposition exists for pers
ecution, or thirst for blood, and be said ;
further : "If I could be instrumental in
restoring the governmenX to its former
relations, and see the people onoe more
united and happy, I should feel that I had
more than filled the measure or my ambi
tion. If I could feel that I had contribu
ted to this in ary degree, my heart would
be more than gratified, and my ambition
full." The President is moving steadily
and irresistibly forward to the consumma
tion of his Restoration policy, in spite of
Radical denuneiation. He wiU succeed

The Sumners, Wades and Stevens's of

every nerve to defeat the policy of Presi

Tea We:ache Post, the Radical German
organ of St. Louis, is authorised tosay
that President Johnson did not say to
Governor Fletcher, of Missouri, in a re
cent conversation, as has been alleged.
"This is a white man's country—and •by
God, while I am President,•it shall be a:
white mates government." The report is
incorrect, and it was not Governor Fletch
er who suthorize•i the papers to publish
it. As far as Governor Fletcher remem
bers, President Johnson used about the
following words :—"I am in favor of the
White man;" or, "I belong to the white
man's party." Is short to accept the Posts
version, Mr. Johnson expressed the sen
timent attributed to him, and omitted the,
oath, as we prefer that the President of
a country like this should not be a swear
ing man, we gladly accept the Poses cot-
Irection. Mr. Johnson is giving trouble
enough to our Republican brethren with
out shocking their "great moral ideas,"
still further by profanity.

that usually obtained by the Republi
cans in the most exciting campaigns. No
one of honesty will presume to say that
the Democratic strength has fallen off to
this oxtail, sell- the dimetrons result is '
saltily to be attributed to the failure on the
part; of our leaders to use proper efforts to
get Out the full party vote. While there
was 's singular carelessness on both sides in
regard to the issues involved, the Repub.
Hems, either through their secret Leagues
or by some other mysterious means, have
suomeeded in - marching a larger proper.
Lion of their voters to the polls, and the
irictory thus obtained, though notoriously
an unfair criterion of the actual strength
of parties in Pennsylvania, will be used
by them to the best advantage.
Rotorua, official and unofficial, give s
Republican majority in the State of not
Jess than twenty or twenty-five thousand.
That party make an increase in the num
ber of their State Senators and Represen
tatives, and will have two-thirds of the
numbers of the Legislature, thus insuring`
the return of &mon Cameron to the Uni
ted States Senate.
In Ohio the Republican candidate for
Governor hu about 28,000 majority, while
the rest of the ticket exceed him by sev
eral thousand. The Legislature will be
largely Republican.
The majority in lowa for Stone, Repub
lican, who was an outspoken negro suf
frage advocate, and opposed by Col. Ban
ton, an independent Republican, will be
in the neighborhood of 15.000.
We are not surprised at the result in
either Ohio of lowa, but that in our own
State is mortifying in the extreme. The
Democracy had it in their power. if not
to elect their ticket, at least to reduce
the Republican majority in Pennsylvania
to a merely uprising number, and have
lost the opportunity simply by their care
lessness and want of organisation. We
fear very mach the consequences will be
a depression on the part emu friends in
Now York and New Jersey, which will
end in giving up those States also to the
"Goths and Vandals."
Otto.— According to the Cleveland
MONA/irk', the Republican victory , is not
so much of a victory after all. It is one
of that class, of which the opposition may
exclaim' "one more such and I am un
done 1" That paper, alluding to the Re
publican rejoicing over the result, says,
" they have triumphed over the Democ
racy by a majority of from 20,000 to 28,-
000 ! Call it 30,000, and what of it? That
simply is a mortifying admission on their
part that the Democratic gain in two
years amounts to the snug little number
of Eighty Thousand 1 and in one year to
just about. half of that—namely, 40,000.
Hence the radicals boast of the loss of
40,000 votes from Lincoln's' majority last
year, and of 80,000 from their majority
two years ago! At this rate, if the Demo
crats do half MI well next year as they have
this year, we shall carry the State and put
the black Republicans where they belong
—into a helpless and hopeless minority.
Besides we shall have at least twelve or
thirteen Senators against five last year.
and forty members of the Hcuse against
eighteen or twenty last year.
.So let us
pick our flints and' try it again." The
Plctilsdealsr says farther that the Democra
cy have aioamplithed all they expected.
Chue friends in that State have been so
hopelessly in the minority for some years
that . they have, probably attained that
philosophical condition wherein men be
come thankful for small favors.

sicken the patient, the Moss and Elm Candy
soothes and relieves :without any of the nu.
pleasant effects from the use of a strong mix

a soothing expectorant it has no equal. *
