THE ',TAN TAMP.Iti4.—Mt. White, who was
badly injured by the lion in the menagerieat
nochester,"on the Vourth of July, paid his .
first visit to his old pntagonist, op ThuNday,
at Corning.. The liOn behaved very well;and
readily yielded obedience to commands. It
is only a' question of time when this brute
will devour Mr. White. Mr. Lan worthy,
attached to Porepaug,h's circus, recently had
a narrow escape front death. He entered the
cage of lions to perform with them us adver

him. Before the beast cmild be made let go

THE Dis'patch calls loudly upon the Anti-
Lowry men oldie county to Ur:maize, assur

."looks vast and' terrible at a distance, but
approached, it dwindles into What it really_
is, a mockery of the reality. a scarecrow,
which that faction cOntinually thrusts in the
view of the peOple, witha, great: noise."
"Battles" itsagaelously adds, "are not won
nor triumphs gained by any such masterly
What is worth winning is worth
working for. There is strength„enmigh and

into political oblivion, forever." We be

The cowardice amd imbecility heretofdre

COUNTY TICKET.--On Saturday, the 14th
of September, the Democrats of Erie county
will be called upon to elect delegates to the
aimia.a Gnnventk n cif the pc,rir. • rp-m the
character of the persons chosen will depend
the character of the teen nominated. If re
spectable eitiFens are sent to the nininating,
(lon vention, the ticket will be such as to.large
ly increase our strength at the polls: The
business men of the country are ready for a
ehange. They are tired of high taxes, in
creasing debts and expenditures, and waning .
trade, commence and manufactures. They
desire a union of the States in order that the
people of the South may - have an opportuni
ty of building up the fortunes of that section,
and thus becoming once more customers of
the North. The Radical party are opposed
to retrenchment and reform. They are in
favor of bolding the States as conquered
provinces, and expending the people's money
in paying :01 army to tyrannize over white
men. Itgwill men benominafedto antago
nize these ideas of the Radical party . , they
will run in largely upon the usual Radical
vote. Let the Democrats remember this when
they vote foedelegates,

Of the candidatea named we have the pleas
are of an acquaintance with only two.,
Messrs. Burlingham and Robinson, and we
can sincerely say that if the rest are of equal

to select a ticket in every •way, worthy the
support of the Dernittiats of the county.

The sarcasm of the Journal will be appa
rent when it is remembered that the Demo
cratic vote in . Pennsylvania alone, was last
year nearly three hundred thousand; and
still more when the tact ie,considered that
every year the Radicals are obliged to resort
to the most desperate measures to prevent
them from losing the State. - •
Tut Meadville papers all speak in very
complimentary terms of the t3ten,gerfest held
in that city last week, under direction of the
Erie Liedertafel. The singing and Instru
mental music, they say, were splendid, and
the performances of 3lehrs Band are eulogized
in a rapturous strain.
The Observer on Thursday, in twaartieles
insists that: the Distiatclt-has been mnd is
"zealously supporting' the "Cameron candi

thereby Judge Williams. Will that paper
give its dates and references? With the ex.
eeption of a brief article on the Williams

with a digest of the address of the Republi

has not mentioned -Judge William's name.

CAMPAION Onstatvr,n,—We are indebted
to friends in different parts i)f the county for
large clubs of campaign subscribers during
the past week; for which they will please ae,
cept our tletnl64, One of them, in his letter
enclosing the names, writes:
"The abovei:gentlemen are good, substan
tial Democrats, hut have never takert_nuir
valuable parrs% seeurtm thetrtiarties
about an hour. I doubt not but what twenty
more van be obtained within our borough
, This is but a sample of what can be done
in every portion of the comity, and we trust
the spirit it 'exhibits will be generally imita
ted- It is the duty and should be no less the
pride of Democrats to give their local jour=
mil the widest possible circulation. We are
now printing a paper which we believe to be
fully worthy of support, and if we receive
the necessary encouragement it is our deter- .
initiation to still further improve it, until the
Democracy of Erie county, even largely as
they ,are in the minority, shall be able to
boast of an organ that has no superior in the
State. - Our books now contain about 2200
names, and we are - anxious to increase the
number to 3poo before the campaign closes.
If only half our present subscribers secure
one campaigner each, it will more than in
crease it to the size desired. We are en
deavoring to perform our full share in the
work ; may we not ask this slight favor at
the hands of our political friends?
ERIE CO. Scnoots.--The annual report of
Superintendent Fisk shows that the whole
number of school districts in the county is
31, of school houses 297, seltools 3f15, teachers
473, pupils 13,005, aud average attendance Of
the latter 8,877. The averap salary-of made
teachers is s4o.2o`, *r atid of female $25.01—a
foolish and unjust discrimination which
might to be removed before the lapse of the
present year. The whole amount levied for
school purposes was $02,214, and for build
ing s97,ll4—making an average taxation
upon property of 11 mills for the former and
7 for the latter, or nearly 1 cents in all. The
snot total pall to teachers was a little over
ClO,OOO, and the estimated value of the entire
school 'property of the county is $150,118.
The records exhibit a'greater number of pu
pils, and a larger sum of money expended
for building than in any pre' ions year, and
the Superintendent draws the inl•rence there
front that " there 1111.0 been some advancement
_the working of the schools," though he
admits that "the progress is not so apparent
as 'would seem desirable, Tint what we have
gained_ will be itermanerd and lasting:' We
hope the day is not fir in the distance when
it can be announced in all truth that the pub Erie county mire not inferior,
either in their acconnuodations, their teach
ers, or in the progress of their pupils, to those
of arrOpivrtlon thersttitrY. - It 'should be
the unceasing effort of every persint . who
takes an interest in the future of the Repub
lic to bring about this consummation at the
earliest practicable period.
Tin rumor that G. IV. Colton lets been
selected by the An ti-Lowry men a their can
didate for the Senate, turns out M be correct.
Mr. Colton's card anti/antein_ that he has
coneluded to tali(' the field appears in tt%e
Radical organs this week, and a determined
effort is to be made to rally the opponents of
Lowry o the forwcr's support,. The Anti-
Towryites seem lortilini that if 31. li. is de
feated ht this comity, it will settle his fate as .,
a candidate, but in this we fear they are
mistaken. The Crawford county delegates
are all his immediate personal friends and
wannest political supporters, and well in
formed per-o:ns there tell us that they will
not budge an ihth from litimptiort, no mat
ter what the Eric Radicals may do. ShoUld
such be the case, and, the enemies of Lowry
carry the county, of which we have not the
slightest hope, an interesting and exciting
caucus contest may, be the result. Of the
-probable issue of a squabble of this kind, we
leave tint. readers to judge, being satisfied
that their opinion will not vary widely from
our own.
The oil business is slowly picking up and
nearly all engaged iu it are anticipating a
better season before long. The article has
been much too low in price to afford dealers
a decent profit, and for the sake of our many
friends who are engaged in the trade, and
the general advantage of our section, we
hope it may soon nttain,a profitable figure.

Tun Buffalo Courier is 11 - 0 to the had'
that J. Wilkes Booth is still alive. It gives
several reasons for the opinion, among which
is the statement that a few weeks ago a gentle
man of undoubted veracity, who has been
wide traveler, called at the office, Mid after
conversing' for some time about the authenti
city of the'llootit'diary, brought iutti court
at the trial of Surratt, dually said : " I know
Wilkes Booth well, and have seen him with
in six months." The expression was let slip
in the heat of discussion, and its utterance
seemed to annoy the gentleman so much,
that he closed the conversation almost im
THE well known Toni Quirk, who was con
gicted of mayhem at -Cony, and whose re
markable escape- from the penitentiary, at
Allegheny city, gave, him an additional rioto
riety, died in the far Nest, on Thursday, of
last week. Afte'r escaping he traveled from
one part of the States to the other, to elude
the detectives, finally lighting in New York,
whence lie sailed for New Orleans, to Which
place he remained a' time, and then fearim s
detection, started on a trntr to the extreme
territories, where he was overtaken by dis
ease. '
Tun fact that lifter advertising. a number of
weeks for propitMis for the desired loan of
fitly thousand - dollars, none ° were received,
does not speak well for the'reputation of the
city among c4ltalists, On Monday evening
it 'was stated by Mr. Spencer, in Councils,
that some of our local banks and a few
wealthy residents were willing to invest in
the loan, provided they could obtain it at the
rate of eighty-five cents on the dollar, and a
resolution to accept of their proffer was adopt
ed, the city obligatingitself to pay all the tax
that may be assessed on the bonds. At this
rate, our Improvement; bid fair ti - cost More

Mit - PIERCE, Alm Titusville 110-er, who
was ,nccusell at Pittsburgh by a witness
nante&Delfaven with having attempted- to
bribe hint with a shirt and five dollars to give
false evidence, has published a statement in
which he denies the storifmm beginning to
end. Delfaven is portrayed by him as " a
yinian with sonic conscience, to-day a tool,
to-morrow repentant, and next the occupant
of a convict's eel'," and, Perrin, a Pithole
knight of the green bag, - - who substitiated
the former's testimony, is styled "&villalnous i
clownish, unprincipled scoundrel, a disgrace
to the profession-and a mockery ormanhood,"
while be himself pctssesses a virtue like Jo-
- seples, and has been the victim of a 'Shaw
conspiracy." Those who know all the par
ties will be bed able to judge of the merits of
the case, though it looks to us, from what has
thus far been published, as If Mr. Pierce had
the best side of the "discussion."

if he is specessfal, the two are pledged to
work in harmony for the passage of a more
stringent license law than. the . present, and
the abolishment of the entire license system
if it can be accomplished. The manly ac
