Tp campaign - Sattscxitrts.
The time for which Mani' of Our campaign
subscribers have paid will expire with the
present issue, and We hope that as many as
can afford the paper will at, once - notify us of
their,tiesirp to continue it, The ensuing year
Will be one tif vast imprfitance in the political
history of the country, and no person should
be content to do without nt least one local pa
per. We hope not only to retain all who are
on our books at present, but to secure many
additional subscribers before the Presidential
campaign opens. The terms of the paper
will be as heretofore, $2.50 when paid in ad
vance $3.00 at the close of the year. tf.
Now, that the elections - have resulted so
cheeringiy,'and the gimps have mostly been
gathered, we ask our friends in every part of
the,county to make a determined effort to In
crease the circulation of the Observer. With'
over , lour thousand Democratic. voters in
the county, we -should have not less than
three thou Sand subscribers, and believe that
by the proper sort or effort that:number can
readity'be obtained.- 'A 'permanent circula
tion of three thousand would place the paper
on a substantial footing, enable us to pursue
a more independent Course than at present,
and greatly inure to the interests of the party
In the county. We- trust that from this time
to the day of the next election everreamest
Democrat in the county will consider himself,
nti agent for the Observer, and endeavor to
procure at•letst one additional subscriber.
- A Attexo the prominent mottoes displayed on .
o transparency carried by the Democrats at
their gloriteration on'Monday evening of last
week, was the fanning: "Taxes for Rich
and Poor alike." Many are at a loss to know
what this means.—Republiean.
We will tell our cotempomry what it
means. It Means, first and foremost, that by
the lec, , islation of the Radicals, vast share of
*he wealth of the nation. his been exempted
from paying its :just proportion of taxation
for the support of the Government. It means
that the ittas,.es have disetiverell that this dis
crimination adds to their own taxation, and
is contrary to every principle of true Repub
licumism, It means that they hawk resolved
that, all the property of the country shall'
bear its fair share of the hardens of Govern
ment, and that there shall, be no priillegelf
clasq within'the limits of the' United -States„l
if their votes can prevent it. It means that
the party which upholds the unjust discrimi:
nation we have referred to is bound, sooner
--or hirer, to encounter the odium it so richly
merits, and that the people are Moving once
more,to take matters in their own hinds, and
render the Government, what it was designed
to bit, one of.equal and exact justice. Is the

cessful last year, will again open on Monday
evening next. in the East Ward school build
injr; under the direction of Mr. J. M. Wells.
The object of this school is to afford men of
all ages, who have not bad opportunities for
learning, the means of acquiring the rudi
ments of an English education—reading,
writing and arithmetic. Boys over ten years
of age, Will also he received in a separate
class ; but this privilege will be strictly linii

the day schools. Proprietors and managers
of factories; - shops,. foundries, &c., and all
those who have persons in their employment
who need the opportunities afforded, by this
school, are urged to bring it to their attention.
There wilrbe no charge for tuition, but Rich
pupil is expected to provide his own books.
Prompt attendance on the first evening will
greatly fiteilitate the forming of classes and
the proper - organization of the school. The
school will be, open on every Monday,
Wednesday- and Friday evening, and the
hour for commencing the exercises will be at
seven o'clock precisely.

season, including Wendell Phillips, Robert

The Young Men's Association extended
invitations to 3failton Marble, S. S. Cox, Geo.
Ticknor Curtis, and,other prominent Demo
crats, but failed to secure their services. We
.owe it to this society to state, that in-solar es
our knowledge extends, they have aimed to
Seat impartially in a political sense; and' we
are assured that if any Democratic speakers'
had been willing to appear on the lectrner
board they would have been as freely engaged
as those on the other side of the house.
A MF.srur a of Radical citizens was held in
the Reed House, on Tuesday evening, to or
ganize a Grant Club, in accordance with the
programme of the party to seize possession
of that imperturbable gentleman Wore he
can be secured by the Democrats. The pro
gramme failed to work satisfactorily, and af
ter some suggestions it was decided to adjourn
to the Court House on Tuesday- evening of
next week, when a committee of eight will
report permanent officers for the organiza
tion. The movement was mainly run by the
" bow-backed, weak-kneed and sunken-eyed"
element ot the party, and the Lowryites do
not appear to have taken much interest in it.
The "Republican" is rather disposed to cavil
at the matter, haiing complained on Tuesday
that no information was sent to it of the pro
posed organization, and again on Wednesday
that the meeting was called' together "five
minutes beibte the appointed time,"—a de

of Erie awake to the facts, and stare them
boldly in the face, the better it will be for all
concerned.. How shall we make up for the
mistakes and supineness of the past, and start
our city upon a renewed career of prosperity?
The answer bi plain--cstablish manufactories,
give employment to the masses,' keep capital
at home instead of sentlinglt shmad, attract
strangers to invest among us.' We have an
advantageous location, and every facility.that
is needed for ~ i ceiss.• Having an abundance
of coal within a few hours distance, and con
venient means' for shipping to any point of
the compass by Like, canal drrailroad, we sec
no reason why Erie might not be made, in
side or ten, years; one Of the most important
manufacturing points in this country. We
beseech the people,of Erie to consider this
subject carefully and earnestly. We have the
capital and the energy to successfully estab
lish almost any kind of manuthetbring enter
prise, if our citizens would enter into the plan
%111 t the proper spirit, and• they may rely up
on it that it affords the only sure matlito cer-'
. and permanent prosperity.
FLn somc time r the city authorities have.
been striving to lireak up the system of auc
tion sales - at mitrket, at the suggestion of
nuttiness then, who complain that they injure
their business. The old-city ordinance was
first imposed, .thit, like Most laws, it left a
loop-hole,which the auctioneers were prompt
to avail themselves of. The ordinance was
then amended so that it was thoaght impos
sible to evade it, and the authorities began to
congratulate themselves that theyhad
got rid of the matter. Judge of their sur
prise and indignation, however, to find - the
anctions going on as vigorously as ever on
Saturday morning. The auctioneers, deter
mined not to be beat, Lad engaged positions
inside the fence of the Mrs. Reed property,
wliere they disposed of their goods to the
crowd on the pavement.. Being on private .
ground, and having regular license, they
could bid defiance to the officials, and many
were the jokes indUlged in at the latter's ex
pense.. We believe it is now settled that
there's no-use of trying tit get ahead of an
auctioncer,-especially when he's a smart one,
like Frank Winchell.
Coarearrvtu.n appears to have been
smitten 'with the prevailing newspaper epi
demic. We see it stated that_twn new jour
nals arc soon to be established there—one
Radical and one Democratic. So far ns the
Democratic one is concerned, with a full re
gard.for our party interests in that section,
we trill it will not be undertaken. The field
is not wide enough to ensure its sumesi, and,
as in Several recent instances, it.will almost
inevitably be a failure. What the DeMocrat
ic cause needs no* is not additional papers,
but a better support of those already estab
lished. None of the-- Democratic ( organs in
this section receive more than a fair living
patronage,and if new ones are started they will
only serve to weaken, the established jour
nals, while running a poor chance2of—Penna
nency theMselves. Were every Democrat of
Influence to direct his -energies toward's
strengthening the paperit of: his party now in
existence, and enabling them Ito lie independ
ent of outside considerations, we feel assured
that an immense amount more of good would
come froni it than by Starting - new organs.
THE Radicals tat this section feel especially
sore ovei 4 tbe great reduction of their party
strength this year, anti well they may, as the
following figure:, slow : The falling off In
the whole State is about tea percent., but in
this District it is over twenty-fiveper cent.
The whole Republican' vote of Erie and
Crawford last year was 13,9 M. This year it
is reduci 8,540." The party organs ende:av
or to Make out that their loss is-owing to the
failure of their followers to aftend the polls,
owintto the dissatisfaction with the Senato
rial nomination and other grounds, , but ; this
is far from being the whole cause. ' The iiitth.
is, that-hosts of persons who acted with the
party-heretofore`have become sick of it, and,
'not.desiring to vote directly against their old
allies, • took the next best course - and staid
away from the polls. A large proportion of
them will be staunch Democrats by the fall
of 1808. t.

o'clock, an attempt was made to break into
the jewelry store of Capt. •Anstin, on the
North-West aide of the Park. Mr. P,ostley,
who sleeps in the rear of .the store,hearinga

TUE establishment, of a new dry goods

THE 'complaints against Erte hotels, which

with justice. The elegant Reed House is ad
