extensively in the States where elections are
yet to be held. t, The State elections for a
Presidential yearalways indicate the result
of the Presidential canvass. They are doing
so this year. The first election was a Radi
cal defeat, and every election since has been
as bad or worse for that party.
Well may the World exclaim "what a fraud
is Radical reconstruction" in the light or the
returns from Eenttieky. "Here is a Stale

Neighbor is armed against neighbor. The

Her culture and xii'tue are disfranchised.
There are no inducements for white men to
live there. Capital is repelled. A minority
governs, and in the nineteeenth century a
Governor calmly proposes to exterminate the
oppisition by force of arms. In Kentucky
how different! A State army is unknown.
Wealth multiplies. Labor thrives. The

such as Stevenson, Bramlette, Guthrie, and
Wickliffe. Tennessee breeds such dirty dogs
as Brownlow, Stokes, Mullens, and the like
—who arc the reproach of their spe(Aes and
of the civilization of the period. Kentucky
is a Coustitutionah State. Tennessee is a
Congressional State. That is just the differ
ence, and the cause of the difference."
The N. Y. Herald Misled us into stating last
week, that the debt bad increased fifty-three
millions during the month of July—the fig
ures are just forty millions too large, and
should have been thirteen millions, three
hundred thousand, which, we do not doubt,
Is abundantly large - satisfy the l most in
quisitive tax-payer. - On the Ist of July the
debt, less cash in the treasury, was $2,510,z
245,886; on the Ist of August it was $2,523,534,-
480, of which $410,302,801 bears no Interest.
The increase was caused by the issue of $32,-'
210,000 of six per cent. bonds to the Pacific
R. R. Cos., without which therewould have
been a considerable reduction. The Radical
financiers alwass have sonic plausible pre

plea that the railroinis will redeem the bonds

no additional burden to the tax-payers of the
nation. No one who knom the history' of
public loans to .private eompanit s, need be
tom that this is all gammon. The corpora

paying back their loan, and the dear people,

From lowa word comes that timing thir
teen- years the Democracy have never been
'known to start upon a campaign with, more
general good feeling and •ang.ttnte- expeeta
tions. In -Michigan the Democrats report
that they are Ilinroeghly orAanized and arc
certain to entry the State. The reports from
Nebraska and Wisconsin are equally encour
aging. New York, Irennqylvania, New Jer
, sey, Conuecticct, Maryland, Delaware, Ken
tucky, California imd Oregon are alt regarded
as suie for the Democratic ticket, While in
I Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas and Wis
consin, the Radicals have but slight hopes.
We have never known a campaign in which
SO much• of the genuine wild-fire spirit which
secures success has Been exhibited as has
pervaded the Democratic masses nearly cr.
erywhere since the nomination-of Hot-. 4::.
Seymour. Every morning our telegraphic
dispatches contain accounts from all parts Of
the country of tremendous out-pourings of
the people Lug, r to testily to tl w if disappro-,
b.ltion of Didical rule. The universal ver
dict is, that the hearts of the! people -
never deeply stirred as noW. They rush
in rrov. d- to Liar the truth declared, and or
-1 alors seem to be inspired by the pressing is
! cue 4 of the hc;ur to a degree of eloquence
seldom equaled in c4unp,ll,m sp.teclies.
t In this connection, it may be mentioned
that Horace Greeley has issued another
mandate warning his followers of the dan
gers 'befuro them. , After speculating upon
the prospects of the campaign, he says:
" Yet we do mit believe, nor wish others
to belidle, Gen. Grant's election certain. We
would have every one realize that the elec
tion is not vet decided—that the Republicans '
eon win if - they work-, but must loose if they
are heedless or apathetic. We hope to carry
Nnosylvarda, Ohio and Indiana, in October,
but by sinall majoritic*, such as will animate
both parties to more determined efforts BA
November. Our Indiana friends talk - of a
large majority in that State; we shall be con
tent with a small - one. We do hope surely
to carry this State, but kuow well that hard
work is required to do it. Friends of Grant
and Colfax ! do not believe we shall win eas
ily ; for, without strenuous effort, we should
not win at all. But work on in assured con
viction that victory is within your reach,
and scan the above table as proof of it"- '

The Radical leaders may wake up ere long
to the conviction that the stale epithets with
which they seek to droWn Democratic argu
ments do not keep the people from noticing
the startling firt that in three years of pCace
the Radical party has wrung fifteen hundred
millions of money in taxes from the pockets
of the people, and has borrowed eight hundred
millions inore. That party may he "loll" till
it is sick frorri.excess of "lenity ;" but' Thai
no return for tbe money. "What have you
done with our money ?" That is theTteople's
question. Why are the expenses of filo Army
and the Navy for the year.lB67, W 3,522,585,
or mitre money than was required to carry on
the Mexican war? Why does it cosh in ex
act figures, $44.413,151 more to support the
army and navy ; in the year of peace 1867 than
it did in the year of peace 1866? Such lanes-,
thins cannot be answered by c Ming Denis
erats or their candidates "copperheads" or
"traitors ;" they are questions of figuiles, not
filth. Throwing the dust of dead issues into
the eyes of the people fails to blind them to
tho ha that eleven millions more were ad
ded to the public debt in the month of June.
" What has Radicalism done with the pen
' plc's money? Ring this question in Radi
cal ears front now till November. It'
means something. The campaign* is a
question of dollars, mot "vipers ;" of hard
money, not hard words:
_The attack on Fort
Sumter has passed into the history of the
year 1861; the people want to know about
a n ti. Radical attacks on the public treasury
and the people's pockets to-day. "What has
Radicalism done with the people's money ?"
That is the question ;. that is the issue; and
next Ntivember the people will decide
whether they can afford four years more of
Radical corruption and extravagance.
One of our exchanges gives a report of a
conversation between Gov. Curtin and a per
sonal and political friend of his, which recent
ly.occurred in the Union League club llouse
in Philadelphia. The inquiry was made;
"Well, 'Goverrlor, what is your 'Opinion of
the Democratic Convention ?:' "I think,'
said the Governor, "that a stronger ticket
might have been selected, such as Hendricks
and Hancock, for example." "But," cautio
ned the questioner, "what is your opinion -of
Governor Seymour ?" Mr. Curtin replied:
"Well sir, if I were asked to mention a' man
who, in my estimation, possessed the attrib
utes of a perfect gentleman, a cultivated
scholar, a thorough statesman and a sincere
Christian, I could, without hesitation, name
Horatio Seymour, of New York." "How
about Seymour's loyalty ?" ; "Alter the dis
patches that I sent Seymour at the time of
the rebel raid into Pennsylvania," replied the
Governor, "it would hardly become me to
impugn his loyalty; the filet' is,l have never
doubted it. I understand that Belmont is
having all the dispatches sent by Stanton and
myself printed, and I have no doubt they will
be in the hands of every Democratic stump

EDITOR OnSERVEIL—As a person who has
been quietly watching the course of the Re
publican party in Erie county for some time,
I beg to be allowed to allude to a few facts
which have been so prominent in the affairs
of that party as to lead one to conclude that
there is no sincerity or honesty in it. I refer
particularly to its conduct towards Scofield
and LoWry. The latter gentleman has been
repeatedly taboixl by almost• every leading
Republican in the county for u series ofyears
in regular succession, at all times except
when the final struggle came. Then their
names were at hia service, and his beck and
call their law.
It will be remembered that previous to the
last canvass, in which that gentleman proved
the victor, and in which Crawford county
was concerned, um Republicans of Erie de
clared emphatically, "We will no longer be
represented by this man, who is a disgrace to
the State, the party, the county and the Leg
islature." It might have been supposed that
if this feeling was genuine, some effort would
have been made to defeat him. But not a
man in The party, except the then editor of
the Dispatch, consulted with the Republi
cans of Crawford county or Visited Ahern for
-the purpoife of organizing a defeat the field
was open,, and Crawford awaited Erie for the
guiding move. But none was made. Con
claves of from five to twenty Republicans
were held, at which it wag declared Lowry
should not be the choice of Erie county, and
that Crawford being willing "-tostbide the de
cision of Erie, would do nothing less than
repudiate him, particularly that the Republi
cans or that-county ware :v?illirtg, arid anxious
to do so.
Bet what was the result? While Lowry
was in Crawford county, shedding tears over
the grave of John Brown's wife, planning
new county fe'r the Titusville people, and
displaying the wonders of a gunboat canal,
the Itelinblicans of Erie, who bad pledged
themselves 'to defeat him, who had _declared
their shame and humiliation from being rep
resented by him, stayed at home, and let him
plow the field, and sow the crop and reap it
I will leave it to any earnest, zealous man,
if this &cies not look as though - the
cans of Erie were "weak-kneed, bow-backed,
and sunken-eyed"—if It . does 'not look as
though they had no strenzth but Lowry's,
no force of character beyond that furnishFd
by whippers-hi employed by-him to manipu
late the party.
The canvass this fall is but a repetition of
that just alluded to. While it was intimated
a few months ago that he should not have a
voice in the management, or a share in the
spoils, it will be observed that he is lord of
the field., The Dispatch, Gazette and Repub
lican-dare not oppress or oppose him, for by
so doing they would oppo.c the party—i. e.,
spoil the programme which has been fixed
upon to carry out the campaign. In abort,
These Tapers, n 5 well as certain leaders of the
party; seem waiting for an opportunity to
toady' to him.
Certain astute Republicans, who arc not
willing to acknowledge themselves Mr. Lo
w slaves, will say that he has nothing to do
with this campaign—thy it is iu the limits
of Mr. Scofield's friends—that Scofield and
Lowry are personally itt_ enmity, and that
therefore what is intended for flue benefit of
one cannot benefit the other. Do not, dear
Republican, allow any such shallow notion
to take root in your head. How much can .
or dare Mr. Lowry or Mr. Scofield do, one
against the other, v, hick will not create trou
ble in the ranks and injure the author of the
trouble. Both are too wise for this. Both
nntlershind theniselyes
. better. Both must
work together. So that, however much the
canvass may 'look like a -Scofield arrange
ment, it does not destroy Mr. Lowry's hold
upon the party or his influence with the Re
publicans of Erie county.
Sustaining Mr. Scofield as the Republicans
have done, is about on a par with their con
sistency with themselves in their treatment
of Mr. Lowry. "„Scofield must not be re
elected, shall not be re-elected, can not be
re-eleoted," was the cry a few months ago.
"Let us . do justice to ourselves and our coun
ty by sending an Erie county man; no other
am have our support!" continued the valiant
men of honor and consistency who fear noth
ing but political gods: Whereupon, out they
come, one, two, three, four of them for the
position they don't want Scofield to hare. The
Deacon says the field is his—he is fairly en
titled to it from long possession, and he will
not be driven or scared from the track. But
by the time the split is- extensive enough to
ashait Scofield with,a.rair show of ruccessr
the ex-prcachbr leaves' the track. Walker
withdraws, as he has a habit of doing, and
Cutler don't seem to be supplied with the
back bone to fight it out. Insfead of stand
ing by King, and vindicating their honor and,
promises, it is all Scofield's, as any ninny
knew ft would be as soon as the carididateS
became so thick as to defeat themselves.
Was there no Republican paper to advo :
1 cate the right of Erie county, or are they all
muzzled by this detestable power, vested in
a few who run party and people, and in five
i , - cases out of six do everything dishonest mi
l< der pretext of defeating dishonesty ?
Thtse are some of my reasons for agreeing
4 - Me the eminent senator, that too many
member's of the Republican party in Erie
county arc "weak-kneed, bow-backed and
sunken-eyed." ANON.

During the week past e had" a visit and
speech at the Academy of Music from the
Hon. Gleuhi AV. Scofield, mentioned some-.
times as the modem Demosthenes. There
was fair turn ont of the Inio"ple, say about
cld/hlrati , Fut. a
man who has occupied the position of Rep
resentative and,cjijoyed,,, the chances for ar
gin6nntlii9,aulptre ocyd.fyears' experience in

Hon. Scofield, jutigingsfrOm Ins speech on
this occasion, is a most lamentable failure as
a statesman; and we must confess our sur
'prise that n party numbering many thou Sand

lighten his hearers upon any of the great is
sues which now agitate the whole country.
The tenor of hid !Teeth was that of a con
vict, purely on the thlensiye, in order the
better to cover, np the .errorz of his party in
Congress for the past year, with an occa

A little boy, the other day; said to his pater
nal sire, " wlig, Pa, I ace a tannery way off

" , Why, I think it is full of Grant men!"
This brilliant effort was entirely too much
for Esq. Wilson and the balance pf the Union
League, inclading some of n?enagers of
Post No. 70 of the b. A. R., who, as if by
spontaneous combu f stion, gave thepeaker
three hearty cheers, it being considerel as a
squelcher on the Cops, and ,will doubtless
annihilate the whole Deinoratie party.
Viva la Scofield! As his spa - eh here made
five Democratic voters, I would suggest to
the Democratic. Execittive . Committee the
propriety .of immediately - engaging this
promising bpd of eloquence, satire anti wit,
to makd a speech in every school district in'
the county, as it would make a clean Demo
cratic gain of 1,000. In the meantime, Mr.
Scofield has a little unsettled account to set

I will speak more fully on sonic future occa

Logal news at this point is
,quite dull for
'the . week past, with the exception of an occa

so frequent that it would 'not be considered

we learn, was that '25 men, headed by the

Thlitor CAserrer follower-.t. and ssl
tuirera of the man without "a poliey," , and
who said he 4 'would deem it a great misfor:
tune not only to. himself but to the country
should he be nominated and elected 'Presi ,
dent," assembled a few weeks since in Union
Hall, in this place, and formed what they
call 'a "Grant Club." The novelty of the
thing hrpught together quite a number of the
admirers of Hiram U. Grant at the first meet
but there being no enthusiasm manifes
ted at the birth of the "Club," its succeeding
meetings,have been lamentable failures.
- Two weeks ago, last Saturday, the second
meeting of thenforesaid"Club" was called,
and, notnithstanding the fact that 31 B.
Lowry, of your city, was announced with
fkoning pOsters as the orator of the evening,
very few could be brought togethdr. For
some unaccountable reason, Mr. Lowry failed
to make his appearance—perhaps he thought
it would be "love's labor lost" to come this.
far for so little. The President of the Club
deemed it necessary to make a few remarks,
and endeavored to impress upon the small
number present the, fact that there was work
"to be did," if they expected to succeed, and
invited all present to come forward and pay
into the - treasury the sum of fifty cents initia
tion fee, to defray incidental expenses. It this
unexpected announcement by the President,
quite a stampede was made for the hall stairs,
After order was restored, the remaining few
listened to some rambling and desultory re
marks from a young "limb of the law," who
expatiatei upon the superior virtues and in
telligence of the my, , c,! race, and their exceed
ing great fitne.s to make laws forthe govern
' meat of white men. Suffice it to say, that
his extreme laudation of the ni'gro disgusted
the small proportion of Hiram's supporters
who remained in the hall. -
On Saturday. cycuing .last, Aug. t;, their
regular semi-monthly meeting was held again.
The North Ea , :t Band was called into reipti
sition to 1n leg "the faithful" together, and af
ter considerable druthming throe fTh the prin
cipal streets, they were succes, , ful in congre
gating jive men and t+-0 small boys! The hall
was brilliantly lighted early in the evenipg
for the reception of the ra:q multitude they
expected to pill together, bait was like
"Calling spiritg from the vasty deep."
They would not come. Like the preceding
tine, the meeting proved, as a German friend
termed it , . "one Gran—t fizzle !" and very
soon after the hour for assembling, HAI af
ter light went out, leaving but one dusky'
lamp burning, the dim light of which seemed
emblematic of the last. flickering rays of Rad
icalism in our beloved country: Whether
they will attempt to Iq>lo' another meeting of
the "Club," remains to be seen. Some of the
knowing ones among them' assert that it is
useless to hold any more meetings - unless they
can prpcure the services of some "big gun"
in the Radical party to address them, whose
presence will inspire confidence and infuse a
little life into their "lost cause." To this end
there is some talk of sending for Andy—not
Johnson—G. Curtin. When 'he comes, may
we be there to see. More anon. Yours,

believe that the circular I received from the
Washington Committee is a "hair," and as he
is further pleased to term it, "a scheme of
some lazy individual at Washington who
thinks it easier to fleece country postmasters
out of their money than to earn ap honest
living by working for it." In thus oudeavor
ing to be smart at myexpense, he overshoots
his mark, and dgals his Washington friend, the
Secretary of the Republican National Com

WATEllronn, Aug. 10, ..1.66q
A meeting of the Democratic s oters' of
Waterford Borough and township was held
at the -house of It. Leslie, cn Saturday eve
ning, Aug. Bth, for the purpo.e of organizing
a Seymour and Blair Club. The following
arc the officers elected :
President—l. M. White, Esq.
Vice Presidents—lsaac Y. Lunger, Hosea
Lillihridge, W. IL McGill, Wm. Davis, Wil

Secretaries—Col. W. 0. Colt, Timothy
- Committees were appointed to procure a
hickory pole, streamer and flag, and prepa
rations are making for a jolly time and pole
raising on Saturday, 22d inst. After the
usual business of the evening, addresses were
delivered by Esq. Caslin, of Ohio, and Rev.
W. B. Lloyd, of this place. One gentleman,
before the closed, asked perniission to make
a few remarks, which request was granted.
Said he, "I have always been a Republican,
was brought up a Whig, and have never vo
ted otherwise in my life; but now; seeing
how affairs are moving, I am at this time a
true Democrat, and from the bottom of my
heart am in sympathy will; their principles."
En. OlisEUvEn:—The Democrats of War
ren are pleased to see the kindly feeling with
which Erie county has received the sugges
tion of Judge Brown as a _candidate for Con
gress. We believe that he is one of the ablest
men of the district, and his amiable personal
traits, combined with his conservative dispo
sitibn, redder him, in .our opinion, the most
available. here he will receive Many Re
publican votes, and the Democrats entlnisi
astieally summit him. He ,is well known
over the district, and will command a larger
vote than any other loan who can be named.
Warren county has not had a candidate for
Congress since the district was formed
Twice we have voluntarily conceded the
nOrnination to Eric, and once to Clearfield.
We now feel that our turn has come, and ask
that Erie shall rally to the support of our
candidate iu the same generous spirit V. Lich
wehave shown towards her in the past The
Deb - leer:icy of Erie and Warren have always
wcirkedb together harmoniously, and the same
good feeling cap prevail in future if etcli
continues' to act towards the other in a spirit
of magnanimity and patriotism.
At a meeting of the Democracy at Uni, , o

above the ground was raked, and the nomi
nations of
: Seymour and Blair were ratified.
A very interesting speca was delivered by
Capt. Gray; of Titusville, formerly of Roches
ter, and two years since'a very ardent Republi
can. The townball could not accommodate
-one-half of the people pre , ent. The report
of the Dispatch of August I nth is anything

"The War between the States, its Causes,
Character, Conduct and Results,". by Hon.
Alexander 11. Stephens, is the title of a valu
able work just issued by the The National
Publishing Co., Philadelphia, Pa.
It prei7ents a careful political, analysis of
the past, separating real froni apparent causes
of the late unhappy conflict, and gives those
interior lights and shadoWsof the (treat War,
only known to those high officers, who
watched the flood-tide of Revolution from its
fountain-springs, and \ Vhieh were so aece,si
ble to Mr. Stephens from his po , iti , tn sec
ond officer of the Confederacy.
To a public that has been surfeited with
apparently similar productions, it presents a
change of fare, both agreeable and salutary,
and an intellectual treat of-th , 4 birhest order.
The Great American War has at last found
a historian worthy of its importance, and at
whose hands it receives that modeate, Can
did and impartial treatment which truth and
justice so urgently demand.
This most valuable work is sold by sub
