The Harrisburg Patriot rightly concludes
that the great question which politicians
should study just now, is, what shall be done
to relieve the taxpayers ? That the country
cannot long endure the present rate of taxa
tion, and prosper, is no longer a debatable•
question. The burden is now so heavy that
many think it really dangerous to add /1110-
tiler feather to the camel's load. Whence,
then, shall relief come? We answer, turn
out the bunglers and destructives from the
halls of Congress ! The increase of our na
tional indebtedness at the rate of from eight
to t,en millions oftiollars a month shows that
they are either dishonest, or wholly incapa-
We of managing our pm - Imin! affairs.
The first number of "Brick" Pomeroy's
New York daily was issued on Saturday
last, and, as might have been expected from
the reputation of the proprietor, it at once.
secured a circulation which establishes its
success. It is called "The Democrat," and
presents au appearance of neatness that is
scarcely equalled by nine out of ten papers
in the country. - Mr. Pomeroy has gathered
a corps of assistants about him who are un
excelled in their especial departments, and
we need hardly add that, whether for edito
rial ability and spirit, or enterprise in collect
ing news, the Democrat has no superior and
few rivals among the Metropolitan press.
We like the frankness and pluck of Brick,
though we sometimes- differ from his views,
and heartily wish his new enterprise all the
success it desen - ci—which is more than can
he measured by tsords.
We were not wrong in suggesting that the
letter of Mr. 6. 1 A. Wells, Commissioner of
Internal Revenue, to. which we referred a
- couple weeks ag,o,•would be used as one of
the leading Radical documents during the
campaign. It was prepared with the especial
design to cover up the terrible costliness of
Radical rule, and as such will be circulated
over the country by wholesale. The Dis
patch published it the day atter we exposed
its deceptive character, but made no attempt
to refute our statements. In due course of
time it will find its way, either wholly or in
part, into all the Radical papers, and be quo
. ted by all their orators, so that it behooves
our friends to have the material ready to
counteract its effect at once. They. will find
it in in our columns, alike in the
past, present and future editions of the
The prominence given to Mr. Wells' letter
by the Radical papers, will not incline them
to dispute its contents, and ive propose to
show by his figtres, distorted even as they
are, that the party tibich has had control of

30, 1867, to... Tune 80, 1868, and also the re
ceipts and expenditures from June 0, 1860,
to June 50,1801, as taken from the official
reports of the Treasury Department. A com
parison of the two tables will be all that we
shall ask from the thinking portion of the
1860 to 1801. 1807 to 1838.

Excess of expenditures
of 1807-8 over 1800-1,
For the last fiscal year of Democratic
it will be seen, the amount raised from the
people by taxation was only $40,474,325. Of
the $84,578,834 expended, more than a fourth
was to pay off Interest _and debt previously
incurred. It will be remembered that during
this period 3fr. Lincoln had been inaugura
ted, the war had commenced, and the expen
.see of the army and navy had already become
considerably more than usual. During the
fiscal year just closed, the Republican party,
in a time of peace, have levied taxation; and
actually collected off the people $403,.190,000,
or ten times us much as they had to pay seven
short years ago. During these seven years
the actual wealth of the country (compared
with the gold basis of valuation of 1$60) has
not increased one dollar. The devastation
and impoverishment of the South, and the
loss of three thousand millions of . dollars of
negro property (the negroes were then wit
sustaining and surplus earning, while now
they are n burden upon society and the
liC'treasury)together with the addition of
twenty-six hundred million dollars to the
National debt, and one-fourth that sent in
local debt, form in the aggregate more than
a set-off to any apparent increase in the pro
pertyof the Northern States, estimated as it
is in Paper, which is at forty per cent. dis
count. From these data; kindly furnished to
the public by Republican authority, one can
readily cbmpreheud why it is that the busi
ness of the country is gradually sinking to
wards a;state of final collapse.
Again, look at the expenditures for 1867-
08. $148,231,380 for items which in ,1860
cost $62,356,932; we mean the ordinary ex- '
penseo, not including interest on the public
debt, and , for extraordinary expenses, includ
ing interest on . the public debt, Freedman's
Bureau, ReconstruMion and other little ex
centricities Of our present .rulers, $223,318, -
815, against $4,000,173, .in 1860 81, which
was for interest, the only item of "extraordi
nary expenses," as Mr. Wells denominates
them, which we indulged in at that time.
Will not fats like these open the eyes of the
people to the shameful manner in which
Radicalism is destroying the best interests of
the country s -
Mn. SCOFIy.LA, in his speech at Corry, took
positive ground in favor of exempting the
bonds from taxation, and against paying them
off iri greenbacks. The farmers, mechanics
and laboring men of the district are thus given
dearly to understand that if they re-elect him
he will use all his influence. to continue the
policy which taxes them to desperation and
allows their rich neighbors to go free.
In our investigations of the political pros=
peels, we are led: to conclur that the one
and only essential necessar - to a complete
overthrow of the Radical faction is a confi
dence among Democrats in the strength of
their party that will induce them. to +Ow
for the cause with that energy whirl' cliarae
terized them in their campaign'. previong to
the war. Thetlespoth. - (aud arbitrary meas-
Ines of the Lincoln administration, the
Littered lone of social feeling, and the, con-
tinned defeats m e have bustained since the
country went mad over the slavery issue,
have had a desponding effect upon Many
Democrats, which has kept them from doing
their full share towards party organization.
We have never doubted that if the Demo
crats at large had displayed a proper degree
of spirit, courage and energy, Gen. McClellan
would have been chosen President in 18114,
a majority of the State Governments passed
into . our hands as rapidly as opportunity of- '
furred, and the nation been saved from the
reckless expenditure, the business disr.x;ter
and individual unhappiness which have en
sued as a result of that conflict. Another
great national election is before us, and the
views here express,eil receive fresh, applica
tion and afford ground for advantageous re
flection. Every day convinces us the more
that the Democratic party ton trin,f if they
try :—in other words, if they divest them
! Selves of the silly fear that "tlier6 is no
"chance," as so many weak-minded persons
are in the habit of exprc's'sing, it, and go to
work with that reliance, upon themselves,
the justice of their cause, and its approval by
the people, which is ofliself one of the best
assurances of victory. We are delighted to
know that this conviction is eonstantly grow
ing, and to-day a majority of Democrats are
as certain of Seymour's election xis of their
own existence, aml willing to perform their
part towards securing it. The reasons upon
which they build their faith may he seen in
the following facts which' we gather at ran
dom from the election returns of the past few
At the Presidential election of 1864, Mr.
Lincoln, by suppressing the soldiers' vote
cast for General McClellan and by, throwing
into the Western States several thousand
New England soldiers who voted for him
(most of them voting five or six times,) man
aged to obtain a majority on the popular vote
0f411,281. At the last general elections in
the States the Republican majority was only
49,910, including Illinois and Indiana, which
have not held a general• election since the
fall 011866, and crediting Ohio with a Re
publican majority of 2,983, which was oh:-
tahaed by the Republican candidate fur Gov
ernor, though at the same election the Dem :
ocrats defeated negro suffrage by over 60,000
majority and elected a majority of the mem
bers of the Legislature. In 1864 the change
of 205,641 votes would have elected General
McClellan over Mr. Lincoln ; in 1868 it re
quires the change of but 23,456 votes to give
Horatio Seymour the electoral votes of the
States which were carried by 31r, Lincoln.
That we arc not in error in our statement will
be shown at a glance by the following table

Taking the above table as a standard, ant
remembering that in every State the Dein°
eratic vote has steadily increased since 1F:11
the following States may safely be set dov.:
as certain for our ticket :
New Jersey,
Delan are,
Pennsylvania, -
The total electoral vote, Including that of
the Southern States, is 1117, which requircs
. /50 to elect. Supposing the above table to
be correct, it gives us a majority of six, et en
with the carpet-loggers voting in the South.
In ease Congress deprives firm 7 6f par
ticipation in the Presidential electi,on, it will
reduce the electoral vote some eighty,' and
render our victory all the more certain.'
We carried Connecticut in April •by 1,700
majority on Governor, on the I:l7st.eote
ever polled in the State. The opposition
ticket had Grant's name on it for President,
so that his, popularity was as fairly tested as
if he had been himself a candidate. New
York went Democratic • Last full by. 50,000
majority, and we shall, with Mr. Seymour
a leader, Increase it this year. New Jersey
is always Demeeralle. It teas so last fall by
a Majority equal to 80,00:9 in Ohio. Dela
ware voted against Lincoln even during the
war, and she will now go twice , as strong
against Grant. In Maryland and Kentucky
the 'Radicals will not poll-for Grant one vote
ti) every three the Democrats poll for Sey
mour. In California, at the last election, We
had 8,000 Democratic majority, and in Ore
gon we had 2,000 in June; 1868. Them is
not an earthly prospect that the Thidieals can
•overcome these majorities. Pennsylt•ania is
naturally Democratic. We carried it last
year when the opposition did their best, and
we will repeat the result with interest this
fall. We also carried Nevada at the last
election. These State , , where it hardly seems
possible we can he beaten, have 115 electoral
qP - -)56 r 1,30
- Indiana and Illinois arc old Democratic
States which the war caused,to swerve flom
•their moorings: They had no State officers
to elect in 18117, but If they had the Demo
crats would have carried them triumphantly.
This was evinced by the local 'county elec
tions, where the Detnocrats made Vast gains
in almost every instance throughout the
States. The pressure of:taxation, is severely
felt in them, and the desire fora change in
'the admitiletration pervades all classes, with
out diStinction of party.
_ln Ohio we polled
last year 210,000 votes for Judge Thurman,
our candidate Mr Governor. He was beaten
by lesi than 4,900 (in the largest vote' ever
given in the:State. The Democrats were de
ficient in their organization and ]malted confi
dence in the result. litul they had better
organization, and as much confidence as they
have now, Ohio would have been Democrati c
by'2o,ooo majority.'
Missouri, with her eleven electoral votes,
is one of the strongest Democratic States in
the Union, if her people all voted, would
give Seymour and Blair 50,000. majority at
least. We have been beaten there for several
years, because the Democrats have allowed
themselves to be disfranchised by illegal test
oaths, administered at the polls. These oath's
have been deektred to li4 Unconstitutional,
and this year the Democrats will vote, and
the support Grant will receive In Missouri
will be sniiiirlideed.
Grant Is not certain of all the South. He
cannot, even backed up by the negroes and
the military, carry half of it. He will lose.
Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi,
Texas and Arkansas certain, and they have
fitly electoral votes. If the people in Western
Virginia turn out and vote,as we nnderatand
they. will, Grant will be beaten'in that State'
1)F - ti great majority. The Radicals have been
carrying it het-atm not one-third of the pur
ple hare voted. It has fire electoral rota.
Nebraska is about balanded politically, •
is as likely to go for Seymour as Grant: Wis
consin and Minnesota are in the same cate
gory. A vigorous effort by the Democracy
will give both States tu Seymour. The Rad,
ical6 only carried them last 3 ear by the be
rest majmitit Men New Hampshire is not
absolutely certain lbr Grant.
Upon therefore, of the genei al
field, the friends iiiflsieyntour and Blair have

We find in the New York Sun—a paperpro-
Sussing and, to some extent, practicing, inde
pendence, though decidedly Radical—an ar
ticle on the discomforts of the laboring popu
lation of that city ; which says: "They are
profoundly dissatisfied with their present con
dition. And why Because, though receiv
ing high rages, they find themselves daily
growing poorer. They cannot purehase_for
themselves and families ns many comforts
to-day for five dollars as they . could for two
dollars six years'ngo."
The New York- Herald, in on article show
ing that the American people to-day are
taxed heavier than any other nation in the
world, gives the true reason why the.
laboring classes cannot purchase for them
selves and Dimities as many comforts now for
Vi as they could for $2 six years ago. • The
I editor say:,:
. "We have estimated that taxation by the
Federal Govi.rinent alone, - independent of
State, county and municipal taxes, amounts
to fully fourteen dollars a head—man, woman
and child—Millie whole population. Take
the ease of a laboring man, with a family of
five or six children, and it will be seen that
he pays about one hundred dollars a year,
which, on an average, would be about a
seventh or eighth of his earnings. Yes, the
whole working population pay, in one way
or other, this enormous and proportionate
amount of their hard-earned money. 'Nearly
ono day's labor out of the week the year round
goes to the support of the Federal Governrunt
The local taxes imposed by the States, coun
ties and municipalities amount probably to
nearly as much, for in the end, directly or
indirectly, all taxation comes out of labor."
Directly or indirectly, all taxation comes
'out of labor. TIM extravagance of Govern
ment,the profligate expenditures of Congress,
the schooling, housing, feeding and support
ing negroes through.the agency of the Freed
men's Bureau, the keeping up of a standing
army in the South to make the negroes the
masters of thaiiaportion of the country—all
I such and their like, which require hundreds
of willious of dollars annually, and which
necessitate crushing taxation, fall directly or
indirectly oulabor to sustain them And yet
we find laboring people so blind to their own
interests as to support meta and measures
whose success will continuo and increase
these very buftheus so opprS.ssive to them.

We have often said, and still adhere to the
belief, that tunong the most 'outrageous impo
sitions thrust upon the conntry by the Radi
in Congress is the notorious Freedman's
Bureau, which is an electioneering machine
on the one hand, and a swindling contrivance
on the other, fin enriching fitvored partisans
-This fraud has become so notorious and of
fensive -all over the country that it Is found
necuttsary to misrepresent its cost. The New
York fribuue seeks to evade that respenßi
,bility itl tats lihshion
"No department of the Government has
been so much abused by Governor Seymour
and Democratic orators generally as the
Freedincu'a,Bureau. They have never failed
to magnify thrce-thhi the cost of that institu
thin: Mr: Wells shows that since its organi
zation in 1800, down to June 20,1888, its ex
penses were only $5,817,000."
This 31r. Wells and. his glaring deceptions
we had occasion to refer to a few weeks ago,
and it scents that his party friends are bound
to make him an important figure in the cam
paign. The people whose money is wasted
and plundered, can investigate for them-
Selves, without the aid of convenient inter-'
' medimies to make up one-sided accounts.
The expenses of this Bureau ar urposely
tioncealed in a mass of appro iat ns, and
!mixed-up with those of the W r and other
''departments, so that it is almost impossible
to get at the exact outlay. No fair or precise
ac'eount has ever been - rendered. While Mr.
Wells states the "expenses from 1800 to 1808"
to be $.5,617,000, Congress made two direct
appropriations within that period for $lO,-
70,7.10, or more than five millions above the
sum stated.
The Bureau was organized by the act of
March 2, 1865, though it had been practically
in existence long before, under the name of
the Department of Negro Affairs, which
transferred large property and funds to the
Bureau. No part of the two appropriations
for nearly eleven millions, already referred
to, was drawn from the Treasury until Au
gust, 1807, being more than two years after
the expenditures of the Bureau began. The
explanation is, that abandoned lands in the
Southern States, and others to which the
Government had acquired title by confisca
tion or sale, were seized and appropriated for
the use of this concern, together with an im
mense amount of fines, taxes, retained boun
ties, &c., of which no returns have been
made, Making an enormous aggregate. Be
sides these vast re4ources, the Secretary of
War had to issue unlimited supplies - of pro
visiobs, clothing and fuel, subject to regula
tions prescribed by himself: The scale on
which it was done may be estimated by the
fact that ten millionioj rations were issued in
twelve months. No account of the clothing
and fuel has been furnished. It is 2 all pur
posely covered up. So, too, in regard to
transportation, medical supplies, and the,
But although the actual cost of this vast
organization cannot be precisely stated, for
the reasOns which have been exposed, still
there arehipproximate figures which furnish
a practical idea of the millions which it con
sumes. General Howard, the Commissioner
of the Bureau, who is directly interested in
depreciating the outlay, and who has done
his best to prevent any such thorough inves
tigation as would develop the whole truth,
made -an official estimate for the fiscal year
from January 1, 1800, to January 1,1807,
which gives the only data from that source
of the expenditures. Here is what - he says
"It is estimated that the amount required
for the expenditures of the Bureau for the
fiscal pwr commencing January, 1800, will
be $11,745,050. This sum, is reepri,qte for the
following Purposes
Salaries of Assistaiit and sub-Assis
tant Commissioners, • • - $147,500
Salaries of Clerks, - - - 82 ,800
Stationery and Printing, - 63,000
Quarters and Fuel, - • - 15,000
Clothing for Distribution, - 1,750,000
Commissary Stores, - 4,100,250
Medical Department, - - - 500,000
Transportation, - - - 1,930,000
Sallpol Superintendents, 21,000
Sites for School Homes& Asylutita, 3,000,000
Telegraphing, - - - • 18,300
Total,- $11,740,050
This estimate is below the mark in many
respects. For example, the salaries are stated
at $290,1100, while the actual amount paid for
a single year was $315,721.94, exclusive of
the pay for school teachers, hospital attend
ants and army officers. Thus we have Gen.
!inward estimating the cost of the Bureau for
one - year at $11,715,050, while Mr. Wells has
p ie assurance to say that the expense?) since
its organization were only $5,617,000. As
these Radical doctors disagrai, the respon
sibility of false statement rests between them,
but unfOrtunately the people have to pa y for
the shortcomings of both.

A CORRI:SPONDENT writing from Brook
ville, in this Congressional district, says a
dozen former Republicans in that town are
openly for Seymour, and "not a single Dem
ocrat is known to falter." This intelligence
is a sample of what we receive from every
part of- the district. We could name
town in Eric county, where the Democratic
vote has not exceeded U1415-five for years,
that will give full fifty'this fall. Should the
tide continue to flow towards the Democratic
side, it would not bd surprising'if we elected

Tni Corry Telegraph, edited by Joseph A.
Pain, Esq., a gentleman ofshrewd judgment
in political matters, acknowledges that it "is
going to be, tight nipping for the Republicans
to carry Corry this fall." That certainly
looks' bad for the cause of "loy-yal-tee" in a
city that has heretofore been reliably counted
upon for two hundred Radical majority. The
Telegraph attributes the loss of the Radical
strength in . Cprry to "local and pc+sonal jeal-

Address to the Nervous and. Debilitated,
'whets* sufferings have been protracted from
hidden causes, and whose cases require prompt
treatment to render existence desirable: If
you are suffering, or have suffered, from invol
untary discharges, what effect does it produce
upon your general health? Do you feel weak,
debilitated, easily tired? Does a little extra
exertion produce palpitation. of the heart!
Does your liver, , or urinary organs, or your kid
neys frequently get oat of order? Is your urine
sometimes thick, milky or ilotiky, or Is it' ropy
on settling? Or does a thick scum rise to the
top? Or is a Sediment at the bottom atter it
has stood decline? Do you hare spells of short
breeithing or dyspepsia? Aro your bowels con
stipitted 1. Do you have spells of fainting, or
ruslrs of blood to the head? Is your memory
impaired? Is your mind constantly dwelling
upon this subject? Do you feel dull, listless,
moping, tired of company, of life? Do you
wish to be left alone, to get away from every
body ? Mei any little thing make you start or
Jump? Is your sleep broken or restless? Is
theflustre of your eye as brilliant? The bloom
on f our cheek as bright? Do you enjoy you r
self in society as. well? Do you pursue your
business with the same energy? Do you feel
as much confidence in yourself? 'Are your
spirits dull and flagging, given to fits of melan
choly? If so, do not lay It to your liver or dys
pepsia, Have you re..tless nights? Your back
weak, your knees Weak, and have but little ap
petite, and you attribute this to dyspepsia or
liver complaint.
Now, reader, self-abuse, venereal diseases
badly cured, and sexual excesses, are all capa
ble of producing a weakness of the g,eneratkee
organs. The organs of generation, when In
perfect health, make the man. 1)1,1 ou ever
think that those bold, defiant, energetic, perse
vering,. successful business men are always
those whose generative organs are in perfect
health? You never hear such men complain
of being melancholy, of nervousness, or palpl
tatlen of the heart. They aro never afraid they
cannot succeed in business; they dbn't become
sad awl discouraged; they are slira3 s polite
and pleasant in the company of ladies, and look
you and them right in the Luc—noun of your
downcast looks dr any other meanness about
them. Ido not mean those who keep the or
gans Inflated by running to excess. Thee will
not only ruin their eonstitutious, but also those
they do business with or for.
Row many men, from badly cured ilisea,cA,
front theeffects of self-abuse and excesses, have
brought about that state of weakness in those
organs that bus reduced the general system so
much as to induce almost every other dis.ase—
