FUR E4UPIIEME JUDGE, -
Hou. George Sharsvirood,
WE hope that none of the readers of the
Observer will fail to read careflilly the cor•
resPondence between President Johnson and
General Grant, on our first page, in reference
to Sheridan's, removal. The old adage,
"shoemaker stick to parar last," is madeper
fectly applicable in the east of Gert t eral Grant.
Ile may do well enough to handle large
arming, but is "All at sea" with his pen. The
President's rejoinder to what would have
been considered in other and better times a
gross and officious act of insubordination, is
calm and dignified, but unanswerable.
Tim rtepublican_party of this State no lon
er sails under false colors, It has laid down
its platform in the plainest, bruadest manner.
It declares in language that cannot be mis

°pair Supreme , Court a Connecticut Yankee
who is pledged to (tee'ille- such a law to be eon
aditritional an enforce its olx.ercance.
What say the white men of Pennsylvania
to such a prograniine ?
Endeavor to conceal it as we may, there is
no mistaking the fact that the nation is in
serious danger. Ex-Viee President Amino
said in a recent speech that we are in amore
alarming, condition than e st any period during
the war, and every day -convinces us of The
truth of his assertion. The experts& of the
country are greater Ilw.n it can safely bear.
The machinery employed by the government,
including the military government of the
South, the Freedman's Bureau, the' army of
tax-gatherers, and the numerous other expe
dients for spending money, is four times as
extensive and costly as it WO before the war.
Wr did not feel it when we we' borrowing
Motley and expanding the currency, but
now, pay-day is at baud. Legitimate busi
ness throughout the North and West is in a
prostrate condition.. Its vitality has been
sapped by taxation. The South is not only
bankrupt, but actually starving ! The people
everywhere are suffering from the burdens
heaped upon them. Prices of food, °fronts,
of clothes, are increasing, and our taxes are
growing higher every year. Our local taxes
are no exceptions. The State tax for this
Connnonwealth amounts to $5,000,000 - lids
year, against .$3,700,000 last year. The rate
of taxation in this city has increased in the
'ante time to ~1• 1 1 in the thousand ; and
. the same is true of all the
_cities and towns
about tig. The Treasury Dentatment esti
mates that front thirty-five to forty_ millions
of dollars will be needed to support the army
in the Southern States during the. present
year. This is a heavy tax upon the business
and industry of the country.. And what use
is to be made of the army in that 'section ?
Is there any resistance to , law and authority,
either actual or suppositious, in that part
of the Union? Is any portion of the people
•in revolt against the National or State
authorities? Neither, and yet the Radical
party insists upon quartering soldiers upon
lite people in time of peace,iandthus adding
to the expenses of the nation at this time,
when the tax-gatherer crosses the threshold
of every man like a spectre of evil. Thirty
five or forty millions of dollars is n heavy
price to pay for a broken Constitution, an
iafracted Union, for negro equality, and the
disfranchisement of white melt. The remedy
is in the hands of. the people, and if they 'do
not exercise it they have no right to corn
- plain. But if they, think that we - haw en
joyed as much as we can afford of such
luxuries, we call upon them to kick over all
platforms built upon abstract dogmas, and to
111110 SC servants who will act for the best in-'
terests , of the country. We are on the wrong
track. Let us change our course before the
Ship of State is wrecked upon the breakers
dead ahead! _
PIPN FOR THE 110111,
TO p n Fs(jfi9:
The cost of the Itadieal plan for keeping
up a military despotism over a third of the
country is beginnhig to be considered by the
reflecting portion of the people. They have
discovered,to the Intense disgust of the Rad
icals, that to carry out the work of registra
tion alone, more than a million and a half of
dollars, in addition to the half million of last
spring,' have been appropriated. As little
prominence as possible hag been given to this
feature. The noise has been made over the
dreadful obstinacy of rebels, and especially
over the rebellious state of the Presidential
intentions. Such clap-trap was !lever turned
to larger account. It costs the people two
millions of dollars this season; and what the
military expenditures are to be can be guessed
with considerable accuracy. It
that the country had fortunately succeeded
in bringing down tie military establishment
to a modest standard but to advance parti
san schemes hundreds of millions more are
to be piled upon the national debt, to defray
the uecessary expenditures of the 'War De
partment hi the continued military occupa
tion of the Southern States. There is a peo
ple reiulered helpless by the course and cost
of a long- war. Theyhave neither means nor
11161. They frankly admit defeat, and come
forward and pledge themselves anew to
maintain the Union. They are raising their
first crop since the termination of the con
test, and now is the time to restore all the
former relations with them, through the nat•
oral and kindly agencies of trade and com
merce. -lust when Providence itself drops
the suggestion. Congress mounts a stricter
guard over them. It puts bayonets to their
throats, and denounces them for worse rebels
than when they were in arms. The country
IS kept iu distraction by these means, and the
people of the . North are expected to pay the
bills of misrule. llowlong, will it last?
' Ix the... Senate of the L:nited Stites, at the
last session, Mr. Sumner attempted to force
upon that body the consideration of his bill
for "universal staffrage," and in his remarks
upon the subject he unblushingly, admitted
that the object of the measure was to secure
votes for the Radical party. He said, "In
Delaware, Maly/and, and Kentucky, it. is
needed to increase the Union (Radical) vote.
It would secure three thousand votes in
Connecticut, and fifteen thousand in Penn
sylvania. It was needed in New York and
Indiana, and in let in every State." It is,
very evident that the Radicals are afraid of
the White vow "in every Stele ;" and, in
order to neutralize- its effect, they propose
.now to let the negroes vote, no :muter what
the people of the several States! have to say
upon the subject. Pennsylvh - nia has the
word "whit" in her Constitution, in provid
ing fur the qualifications of electors ; but Mr.
,Sunnier suggests that, in order to give the
Radicals fifteen thousand votes hereabouts,
the Congressional party shill tinker up our
Constitution, without any reference Whatever
to the views and opinions of . the people.
This is what be calls givinga State a Repub
lican form of government 1

SUGGESTIONS FOR NIL COLTON AND .
„ HIS orEiENpS.
After a careful attrvey of the elmVass, we
have becoMe, confirmed in our Conviction
that Mr. Colton 13 culler not the equal of Mr.
Lowry as watrategist, or that, froM some un
accountablieause,le has neglected a very
necessary feature to secure success in partisan
warfare. The fact is generally understood
that one of the leading es.sentials in a politi
cian is to:be able to make promises with a per
fect recklessness ;tato wheUses they cantaa.fill
filled or not, It is quite as well known that the
people, as a mass, are supposed to be intense
ly gullible, that they are considered as ready
to receive with eagerness any new - idea that
savors of modern so-called patriotism or
seems likely. to
_promote their self-interest,
and that any proposition of this sort, coming
from a prominent man of the dominant par
ty particularly, at once awakens their .fer
vent and -enthusiastic admiration. In both
these highly important requisites, Mr. Colton
seems deplorably and inexcusably deficient.
Does he not know, for instance, that one
of Mr. Lowry's "big cards" is the
deepening of the Canal, so as to admit the i
passage of gunboats from the Lakes to the
Ohio and vice versa? Then follows, as a na
tural result, the establishing of a great - naval
depot at our harbor, and with it the rapid
growth of the city to proportions far excell
ing Buffalo, and the makin# a millionaire
out of every man who owns city property.
Now, what has Mr. Colton promised in this
line? Is it not plain that Shrewd policy dic
tates that he should outbid if not excel his
competitor in lavish promises? Why does be '
not come out at once in a circular (not to be
printed at the Observer office) declaring his
readiness to go still further, and fit the canal
for propellers, frigates, or even line of war
ships? Why not agree to have the canal
bridged to suit the convenience of every-pro
perty owner on its line, and if need be have
a macademized road or Nicholson pavement
built to suit each one's special convenience ?
We have a large number of streams in the
county' which now serve no better purpose
than to furnish a few mill sites, and to drain
the superabundant water of our valleys and
-hill sides. Why not propose to improve them
so as to enable Lake craft to penetrate there
molest recesses of the county ? We could
then haVe a dozen or more harbors on the
Lake, which would undoubtedly become the
sites of vast cities, to the great joy of all
owning laud contiguous, and the inflation of
their pocket rooks. And, .then ; if to these
commendable projects, be could add that all
the improvements will be attained by appro
priation of the &lite or Federal Governments,
without a cent of direct cost to the people
most interested, the hit would be palpable.
Every one of the parties immediately con
cerned would rush to embrace him with open
arms, the people on the line of the proposed
improvements would ride the county day and
night to help his cause, the Dispatch and
Gazette would sing hosannas to Lis name, he
would become Senator by nearly a unani
mous vote, Lowry would be hung on a sour
apple tree, and the Colton phalanx Would
go marching on.
Another subject , that it is a wonder Mr.
Colton has thus far neglected is the one of
new counties. Titusville, Cottneautville and
Corry all want one; and linion,Girard, North
East, Edinbom, Wattsburg, Wesleyville and,
Weigletown wouldn't object if there was a
good show. Now here is a glorious oppor
tunity to make a "ten-strike." Why hasn't
the happy thought flashed across Mr. Gbh/la's
comprehensive mind that he could easily car
ry every township in the county by simply
promising each town_ or village that It should
be a county seat? The idea is worth whole.
pages of dish-water editorials in the Anti-
Lowry papers—one daily ! Think of it—a
dozen or a couple court houses where there is
only one at present, with snug births looming
up in the prospect for every man that wants an
office. What a rush fur desirable town lots,
how property would increase in value, and
how everyman would leap into a fortune !-We
suggest to the. Colton men that here is a
plan they should by no means fail to avail
Then, too, there is the matter of railroads.
It is an unquestioned truth that railroads are
the great promoters of prosperity, and as El
consequence every tamily would like to own'
one. We have had any number of railroad
projects within the last few years, with little
prospect that any of them will be consum
mated. Why not get up a grand scheme, by
which a vast net-work of railroads is to be built
over the county at State expense, with each
town a terminus and point of transtdp
meat, and each fan house a depot? A pro
position like this would take like wild-fire.
The "great moral idea" dodge Is a capital
one to work upon. It doesn't make any dif
ference how vulgar a man may be, how many.
oaths he may utter in a day, or how much
liquor he may drink, if he only makes a pub
lic parade of his piety, honesty and temper
ance, it, will be duly swallowed by thousands
of people who take the pretense for the vir
tue itself. The sanctity of the • Sabbath is a
fine topic to dilate upon. Mr. C. might strain
his eyes in holy agony over the wickedness
of the people in "Copperhead" Gotham,who '
run street cars on Sunday, over the vile Hot
tentots who milk their cows and feed their
goats; irrespective" of the time of the week, '
or over the Fejeo Islanders, who persist in
roasting and dining upon one another, regard
less of the day. A law, protesting In the name
of " the best Government on the face of the
earth," against such crimes, and providing
for sending a Federal army and navy to put
a stop to them, would work like a chant
among a certain class of unco-zealous church
people. Still better would be a mighty con
ception to provide every family with a meet
ing house out of the public treasury, and the
promise of an act compelling everybody to
attend, whether they wish to or not, and
obliging " the heathen in our mast" to pay
the preachers' salary. This part. of the pro-
gramme (we mention in confidence) must be
managed with peculiar adroitness, however,
and special care taken that it does not Come
to the knowledge of a largii class of persons
in the city upon whom Mr. Cohan i.s,relying
for his most active support.
A. multitude of similar schemes risei to our
mind's view, each of which would immortal
ize any candidate who" first brought theta be
fore the people, Ind the mere mention of
which would fill more space than we can
spade at present. We might mention among
them the idea of building great hotels at eve
ry cross road, for the public accommodation,
free of cost ; of furnishing every family with
groceries and provisions at the Common
wealth's expemsei of supplying" mid-wives,
wet-nu .r-ca, and baby garments, "without
money and without price ;" and some like
benefit-to every class of the community._
We call the attention of the Colton men to
these remarkable omissions on their part,
without wishing in any way to be considered
as an iniermeddler, but solely through a dis
interested disposition to see something like
an even fight It is evident that the advant
ages in "strategy " lie on the opposite side,
and unless the Colton men make a "grand
forward movement," something of the na
ture mentioned, they may be in danger of
being outflanked. In the innocence of their
hearts some of them believe; or pretend to
believe. us in sympathy with their antagonist.

Radical journals and speakers dust, such is

they said, was too cowardly to fight, and

ruins of free institutions.- .ft bas been done
gradually by making the people, in the
name of liberty, the willing instruments of
their own degradation and bondage. • Such
is the process now going on In this country:
With high sounding words about freedom
and universal suffrage, the leaders of the
Radical party are gradually breaking down,
one after'inother, the constitutional guards
with which the fathers surrounded the
_rights and liberties of the people, abrogating
State end other local governments; and
striving to'habituate the people to view, with
unconcern, and even approbation, the estab

things do not prove the truth of the maxim
that even in this country_ "eternal vigilance
is the price of liberty'," we do not know what
could prove it. If the people fail to exert
themselves at this critical 'juncture, to stay

Tug DEMOCRATIC PARTV AND IH.
The New York Times, which for some
time evinced a disposition to bit Conserva
tive, has at length followed the demands of
its pecuniary' interests, and gone back to the
wallow of Radicalisnr. In a late issue it eon
tallied the following; •
"The President is fIOW in the handS of
Democrats, of - whom. Ex-Attorney General,
Black is a fitting example. He is playing
their Fame. He is doing, their work. In
compliant* with their requirements, he has
suspended Mr. Stanton and removed Gener
al Sheridan, and he stands ready to &what
ever My be demanded of -him - in the fur
therance of the same end." -
The New York Express well replies to the
above that "this is all new to the Democ
racy, and they have not only rio proof of it,
but they littve not heard of it before. The
offices are all filled with Republicans, most
of them of the extreme Radical school.
Every Democrat is proscribed—even those
who field office under Itincoln. If Mr.
Black has the confidence of the President,
he is the only Democrat in the Cult d States
that has. •
"The fact ts—andli is better known to the
Times than to us—Mr. Seward has run the
Presidency, now, since March, 1861, and he
has been real, practical President, alike un

oensts have had no more influence than the
RepublicanS. The 'Government has been
an ildiciduality, : never consultation, not a
co-partnersbip even of mutual interests ;
and hence, while the President has friends,
he has no party or partisans. The error in
Washington has been in supposing that a
Government could be administered without
consultations, co-partnerships, or confidences

COLORED CANDIDATE FOR CON.
A negro, named James P. Finckling, has
consented to be it candidate from the First
Congressional District of Georgia, because,
although ite would not consider himself
"elevated to a post of honor if elected to The
present Congress," yet considerations of the
gravest importance to his own race and to
the country at large, "impel the conviction
that the surest remedy for Radical eviLs, is
for the South to return colored Representa
tives."' file address to the citizens and elec
tors of the district is sound, sensible, and
from a Radical stand-point even, Is Impreg
nable, for he tISSUIIIpi at the outset that to
empower the negrocs to Tote implies the
right for negroes to be:' voted for. If the
blicks are only to have the "privilege" of
elevating white Radicals to office and are
then to "be politely informed that their ser
vices can be dispensed with 'till the next
election," it is quite time that they are un- -
deceived ; for, argues Finckling,, "if the
colored man is worthy of and entitled to the
elective franchise, it is very clear that he-Is
also entitled to a place in polities in:pro-por

of the successful party."

the South and muster them out of service,
and leave the people there to ureeonstrut: t"

they have visited and closely examined the
jail building, now occupied by the county of
Erie, and find that it is entirely inefficient for,
the wants of said county; ithas not sufficient
capacity for the number of criminals usually
confined there, and no arrangements for the
separation of the- different classes of crimi
nals, and in fact the building is entirely des
titute of the necessary conveniences that
should belong to a buildin g used for such pur
poses. We would, therefore, 'most respect
filly reatnntnend the erection of a new jail
possessing all the requirements needful. We
have also visited and examined the County
Poor House and find that the building Is en
tirely insufficient for the accommodation of
the number of paupers that are obliged to be
supported'by the county. We would there
fore most respectfully recommend the erec
tion of a new building necessary for the ac
commodation of the county poor. We found
the condition of the Poor /long; as regards
cleanliness and the general appearance, in as
good condition as the building would - admit,
and so far as we could judge, would approve
of the present management .

Sucemsrtn. BUSINESS Max.—By many it
Is supposed that suecess in business is the
result of chance rather than of thovnigh
fireparation followed by, persistent effort.
•The history of that numerous body of young
men that have been practically educated tor
business at the hod City College, Pittsburg,
shows that timely and thorough preparation
is one of thesuiest guarantees of fdtnre
mss. The system of practical actual busi
ness traininii pursued in that Institution is
inestimable to every one who contemplates
engaging in business of any kind, as it gives
one an Insight into theme practical details so
essential to the successful prosecution of any
undertaking : There is no doubt buts schol
arship in tins institution is the hest invest
ment one could make.

the Riverside Institute—an asy?um for the
gratuitous education of Soldiers and Sailors'
Orphans—is meeting - with great approval.

im'aense protits which have heretofore been
put upon teas and cores by the producers; the
Importers, the Jobbers, brokers, speculators,
wholesale dealers and finally by the retail coun
try merchants. have so enhanced the peeve of
these essential articles of every-day life, that
many consumers have been obliged to stint
thentselves,or abstaM altogether (rum the line
of Teas and Coffees. It is a fact well known to
those, who filar with the condition of the
tenxnatketit t thesegouda are frequently .re
tailed by sman dealers in the country at twice
or thrice their original value, and even then are
so tulultemted and doctere cy unprincipled spev
ulators as - to be really mint for the use% of any
wood and well provided household.
We do not see why this should longer contin
ue, and we therefore propose to retail our teas
and coffees in small quantities to consumers, in
all parts of the country, at importing prices,
with such small profits added thereto, as in a
widely extended and constantly increasing busi
ness any reasonably compensate as for our
trouble, We guarantee our Was and colfeesval
all times to be fresh and pure, and warrant all
goods sold fmm this house to give entire satis
faction;otherwise the gricsis may be returned
and the money will be rehmded. We challenge
any establishment In this country to compile
