Amosu the celebrities in the city last week
we noticed Hon. G. W. Scofield, of Warren
county, a gentleman who has beconie some
what well known to the public through a
letter written in 1566, wherein •he promised,
with a degree of patriotism rarely witnessed
in these degenerate days, not to take the ex
tra pay which (' , macs, had voted to itself,
regardlcs , of the burdens previously borne
by the tax-payeit• of the country. S‘une ma
liciouq person.: have intimated that Mr. Sco
field did afterwards take the extra pay, nut
withAandinL,P the letter alluded to, but we
presume that the slander has escaped his no
th-c. :v. lie t.),1; no steps to contradict it du
vis,it. We regret, tor the distill-
Lmished gentleman's sake, that his friends
have not culled the matter to his attention,
that he might have accepted the opportunity
to place the facts before the community.
no portion of the county do the Democrats
exhibit more life and tact th.n to thc,x, three
localities. They have organized a club which
promises to be of great service, and have
sensibly commenced by providing papers for
.the doubtful voters, and choosing commit
tees to hunt up those entitled to naturaliza
tion. By a faithful attention to these two
features more votes will be gained than with
half a dozen ordinary meetings. The follow

of last week, by the members of his church

pleasantest impression of the pedple among

munifY ler their church and its,creed, or its
a aeognition of the Bishop's past services,
or a token of hospitglity,it was an occasion
of rare inte: tat and creditable to the fullest
degree. The whole Catholic denomination
seemed to have united in tendering, the Bish
op cordial welejtne, and the day was one
loot; to he rementhered in the annals of the
Erie diocese. Beginning his career as the
head of the church in this part of the State
under such agreeable and encouraging eir
cum-lances, the new Bishop has a most aus
picious pros! r t heron? him, and his admit
ted piety and acti.,ity are the amplest assu
rances that the contidenve reposed in him
m ill not It misplaced.
The Bishop conducted services in St. Pat
rick's and St. Mary's churches on Sunday.
At. both places the es.ercises were strikingly
impressive, and their. elfeet Was much in
creased by the elegant decorations with
the churches had been prepared for
the occasion. The Bishop delivered a dis
course to the congregation of St. Patrick's
in the 111,41 - ling, Maul' was marked by rare
earnestness and learning, amply sustaining
the reputation he biought among us. With
out any sectarian bias, we may he permitted
to add our welcome to that of his immedi-
ate people, and to hope that his career in
Erie may be of vast advantage alike to the
cause of Christianity and of civilization and
g•nod morals ginerally.
We hope - that our friends throughout the
county will take immediate measures to have
everybody who is entitled to be naturalized
in lime for the October and November clee
tioml, attended to at the earliest day pos
sible. •

The Promise and the Fulfillment.
Those of our citizens who have regretted
the intemperate`partiz.anship of the Dispatcl
were much encouraged by an article which
appeared in its columns last week. It pre
tended to deplore the unfairness and 1, indic
tiveness which mark our political contests,
and pointed out the injurious effects of such
a policy in a style no less trenchant than
true. The article was undoubtedly designed
as a pointed rebuke to some of our cotempo
rary's followers, who have long been in the
habit of permitting their, zeal to .run away
with their judgment, and might have been of
incalculable value if that paper would only
have continued to pursue a ccause in accord
ance with the excellence of its teachings.
We are sorry, however, to be compelled to
announce that our neighbor's sudden conver
sion has been of brief duration. In the very
nkxt issue from that in will& this' ed
itorial appeared, it resumed its old habits and
has continued them since, without any appv
rent remorse. In order to show how much
easier a thing it is for some persons to preach
than to practice, we quote below the article
referred to, with some appropriate extracts
from the same paper illustrating the Dis
patch's mode of obeying its own maxims.
The paragraphs set solid comprise the model
editorial, and the leaded ones following are
sample extracts; clipped at random from the
same columns:
If there is anything against which every
honest man, of whatever party, should set
his face as a flint, it is purposed misrepresen
" The Democrats intend to renew the con
flict in such a warns to re-open the civil
war, and rob the North of all the dear-bought
results of the war just closed."
There is much that is accidental, or promp
ted by a lack of 'intelligence, which can bp
overlooked; but this kind amounts to hit
little in comparison with that:which is de
liberately, set afloat by partizans, too often on
both sides, for the very purpose of mislead
ing the credulous and unsuspecting.
?When Woodward was running for the
Gtivernorship of our State, the Democracy' .
4.)genly asserted that should he and Seymour
be 3 elected, no Union troops would be per
mitted to pass to the front through New
York or Pennsylvania—that the Government
would be throttled by Seymour 'and Wood
ward, and the war ended. Seymour is their
first choice to-day."
In the ordinary affairs of life this practice
would not be tolerated, and he who should
attempt it would soon be debarred from the
society of all honorable men. But it is not
so in politico., Perhaps it has never ban so
—certainly not in our day, nor in any other
day ti which our knowledge extends. But
this is 13b excuse for the fact.
"We' should like to single out some reason
able propAtion as an example of fair state
ment and something like legitimate argu
mentation, (in Gov. Seymour's letter of ac
ceptance). But we can find nothing of the
sort iu the whole compass of the paper.
There is hardly a proposition in it that can
be accepted as an approximation to the
truth;' and one would .only make fihuself
ridiculous by attempting a corn etion of such
a series or bold fabodiood. nv gleam through
every paragraph."
It is rather a reason why auother condition
of things should be made to take its place,
and_common honesty made to take a scat
from which it has so long been dislodged.
The soldiers of Stark county, Ohio, were
in the Fifteenth Corps, under Frank Blair.
They say that when they saw Frank skedad
ling to the rear they knew an action was im
If fair-minded men would take the trouble
to look into this matter, and do all in their
power to discourage such a shameless prac
tice, it might be done in various ways.
Toast for a Democratic celebration: " Ilo
ratio Seymour, the candidate . who demanded
peace in the midit of war, and war in the
mid ,t of pence."
We should hope to see a change that would
do away with much that disgraces. our polit
ical discussion, and tend to elevate the char
acter of our periodical contests, both on the
stump and in,the press.
I 1
"What-a pity it is the Democracy cannot
resurrect Booth and Mrs. Surratt. They
would by great cards for Seymour, and of
immense weight as midnight agents in Frank
Blair's new rebellion."
The man who can disregard the claims of
truth and thirness in a political contest will
soon find the virus running through his so
cial and professional relations, and the result
will ultimately be an unimpaired reputation
and a ruined business.
The difference between the Seymour party
and the Grant party is this—when, in 1861,
the Litter said, " carry on the war," the for
mer said " Stop it !" Now, in 1868, when
the lajtcr says " Let us have peace," the
Seymour-Blair party calls out, " let us have
war." , The people who were Mr war in 1861
are for peace in IS6B, and rice renw. •

The Happy Family.
Olin harmonious Radical brethren of the
district composed of Crawford, Mercer, Ve
nango. and Clarion counties, have got Into
their usual biennial squabble over a candi
date for Congress. As we mentioned last
week, the conferees of the four counties, af
_ter balloting nearly three hundred times,
at last dropped all the candidates previously
voted for, and nominated a new man, Henry
C. Johnson, of Meadville. The Mercer con
ft rees claimed that this was a fraud upon The
party, that they were bound to select one of
the candidates whom the people had present
ed, that the nomination of Mr. Johnson was
a premeditated trick, and, suiting the action
to the will, they Illithdrew from the Confer
ence. Their course has been sustained at
home by a unanimous vote of the Co. Com
mittee, and a call has been issued demand
ing the withdrawal of Mr. Johnson, and the
assembling of a new conference. The Re
publican papers of the county give the
movement their energetic support, and it
evidently meets the approval of the party
generally in that locality. In Crawford Co.
Mr. Pettis' friends are equally dissatisfied,
charging that the same influences which
caused his defeat before were instrumental
in the nomination of Johnson; and,his im
mediate organ, the Meadville Journal, is
boldly in opposition to the latices election.
A couple year's ago Johnson was one of
Pettis' right hand Men, but differences seem
to have sprung up between them of late,
growing out of a Suspicion that the-former
has, allied himself with the Finney in
terest. To make matters still worse for
Johustin, the Soldiers and Sailors' League
has passed a series of resolutions declaring
thaf they " repudiate" the nctionof the Con
femme "absolutely and utterly," and endors
'the movement for a' new Conference.
The Meadville Republican takes up the cud
jel for Johnson in a decidedly belligerent
style, and, between the rival factions, there
is a proMise of a most excited and amusing
campaign. Mr. Johnson's friends . say that
he will not withdraw, while the other side as
earnestly declare that if he does not they
will run another candidate Many and every
risk. A glorious opportunity presents itself
for the Democrats to sweep the field, and, if
they act with ordinary foresight, all tneindi
cations point to tho dection or a man who
will represent tho district.with snore useful
ness to the people and fidelity to the Consti
tution than it has had in many years.
Since the above was in type, the Repub
lican Committee of Crawford county has
held a stormy session of eight.hours, and by
a vote of 33 to 12, repudiated Johnson's
nomination, and demanded a new-Confer
ence- -

3rONtMENT PAUL—The Ladles of the Sol
Biers' and Sailors' Monument Association for
Erie county, propose, holding a Fair in this
city in December next, something similar to
the " Sanitary Faits " at Washington, Balti
more, Philadelphia and New York, in 1864,
by which they hope to add several thousand
dollars to their fund.
Extensive preparations are in progress—
the officers of the association design, during
this and next week, to visit all the towns in
the county, and endeavor to induce their cit
izens to take hold of the enterprise, and or
ganize auxiliary associations to co-operate
with them.
They will also shortly visit personally the
citizens of Erie, at their houses and places of
business, and solicit contributions of fancy
and useful articles, or of money, to be handed
in at any time previous to the Fair. Dime
Societies are also being organized for the
purpose of raising money to buy a portion of
the articles. They, will probably hold meet
ings once a fortnight. Notice of the time
and place of holding the first meeting will be
found in another column.
. all the counties in the nation, not one
surpassed Erie in the earnestness and vigor
of the support stie gave to the cause of the
preservation of the constitution and govern
ment of the Union; none cherishes more
tenderly the memory of her heroic dead ; and
none will erect a more suitable and hand
some memorial of the esteem in which the
sacrifice of their lives is held.
The association having the matter in hand
enjoys the entire confidence of the commu
nity, and the simple announcement of its
plaits is all that will be necessary to secure
universal co-operation.
WE TAKE occasion at this early day to re
mind the Assessors of the different wards
and townships that the Democrats intend in
sisting this year upon a faithful compliance
with the law requiring the assessment lists
to be conspicuously posted up previous. to
the day i of election. Of late years this essen
tial clu4l has been wholly neglected in some
localitieS, and we have good reason for be
lieving that in our city the Radical Assessors
have at itimes taken the names of persons
who would support their ticket up to the
Yery•tl4 , of election. We call upoh the
Denniciatic organizations in each district to
make it the special object of some one or
More of their members to see that the assess
ment lists arc properly posted up within the
time specified by law, and no names added
inside the ten days just previous to election.
omi:exchanges remind us of the import
ance and necessity of organization in the
Republican ranks. In almost every county
in our State movements in this direction are
seen. Their importance is appreciated, and
the interest felt in the success of our cause
is prompting our friends to commence a
work which cannot be too soon undertaken
nor too earnestly prosecuted.—Dispatek.
. -Is it possible that this is the same Dispatch
which has been so confidently telling its
readers that the defeat of Seymour is a sure
thing—that Grunt cannot fail to be elected.
What a change in the tune now ? A few
days since nothing could overthrow Radical
ism—to-day frightened appeals for help!
help ! .help! "Organization," the Dispatch
says, cannot be too soon undertaken nor too
earnestly prosecuted." We :beg leave to
suggest that even that potent medicine can
not save them. The people have issued their
edict, and the days of intolerant, tyrannical
and unholy Radicalism are numbered.
