S dt:rday, the 31 of October, is last day
when asst. ssments can be made in time to
vote at the State chn:tion. It is recommend
ed that in every district committees be chosen
to obtain copies of the Assessment list, and
gee (hot no Democrat loses his vote 'on Ac
count titilure to be assessed.
Prom the relmrts that come to us, we are
led to believe that the Radieid Assessors
have entercal into an, arrangement through
out the county to,asacas no peraon who does
not apply in perabn, although the efistom has
always been to receive any names handed
in by a responsible citizen. The object
of this is undoubtedly to keep poor men,
who are unable to leave their work
and hunt up the Assessors, from voting in
October. The better plan, perhaps, would
be, to procure , a list of the Democrats entitled
to assessmen), fix upon a day for having
their names enrolled, and havo them all at
tend to the maitter on that occasion.
It will be \sal to keep a watch on the
Radical Assessors, and see that they are not
pursuing ono policy for Democrats and an
other for their own party friends. If it can
be aseertaindthat any Assessor who refuses
to accept the names of Democrats without
they appear in person, rs adding the names
of Radicals handed him by' others, proper
aeti,en should at once he adopted to compel
him to set in a just and honorable manner.

trict that Mr. S. is one of the letultrs of the

known to the correspondent of the great

qualities that he is hardly know outside of

'E. F. WILSON,
The City Democracy.
910 w Do Yor LitiE Corry
Republican giyes'us the interesting item of
information that "in Waterford, Eric county,
$320,000 was expended for the bonds that
the Democratic party are now so eager to
tax." We thank the Republi in for the state . -
meat, and hope the figures may In fellable.
It furnishes a fresh illustration of the injus
tice •of exempting the bonds from taxation,
and shows more clearly than a column of ar
gument how unfairly the system•which Rad
icalism has engrafted upon the nation ope
rates against the interests of the farmer and
laboring man. Let us see. The amount for
which the people of Waterford borough and
township arc assessed upon the books at the
Commissioner's office, is as follows:
Leal Estate. Femme. Ifono. - Tufa
Township, $155,053 $10,274 $506 $171,833
Borough, 39,182 2,587 3,540 45,309
194,235 - 18514,046 217,142
The valuation, as'we learn from the ,clerk'
to the Commissioners, is only from .4e-sev
enth to one-eighth the real value. We will
take the most liberal figure, which gives us
as the total amount of real and personal pro
perty for taxable IntrPOs4s in Waterford bor
ough and township, the sum of $1,704,499.
This property pays all the State, county,
road, school and .every other kind of tax,
while theenfo invested in bondsdoesnol pay
a penny. The bonds exempted are nearly a
fifth the whole property, and it is easy hisee
that the taxes fall heavier upon these` who
hold no bonds, in the same proportiOn. The
farmer with hisland, and the mechaniewith
hislteuse, pays one-filth more Afturptan is
.share, solely because tits Wealthier
neighbor, who happened to have some spare
faeans—diiring, the war, saw proper to , invest
it in bonds, in preference'to - buildind up im
provements in the place of his residence,
which wouldhave prenioted the prosperity
of the neighborhood at the Rama time that it
benefited himself. This fact is too plain for
any man, however ignorant he may be, to
misunderstand,' If these bonds were taxed,.
like other property, as by right they ought to
be, the effect would be a reduction of one
fifth indhe direct taxation of each property
holder in Waterford borough and Tp. The
indirect taxation they pay upon all articles
which they eat, drink and wear, for the pur
pose of pioviding the interest for these same
bondholders, is as large, if not larger, than
that levied by the State, county, township
and borough authorities.
The same state of affairs which exists in
Waterford prevails to a more or less extait -
In every township, borough and 'ward in the
county. The •people •in &try 'section are
paving heavy burdens to keep up ti privileged
class who do nothing to promote the welare
of their localities, l and aro daily sapping the
earnings of their industrious and less fortu•
nate neighbors. We ask all to look at the
facts, and jutLre fir themselves whether such
injustice shall be saddled permanently upon
Ir any Democrat is in the habit of believ
ing every statement he finds In a Democrat
ic paper, say the Observer, for instance, no
difficulty will be found in accounting for the
fact that ho remains a Democrat. On our
side we think more discrimination prevails,
so that should one of our papers once get the
reputation of falsifying or misrepresenting,
suchpaper would an aink sms Jon, that no
regard would be paid to its statements.—
Then by this time they must be very
"low" indeed, for we do not know a single
Radical paper whose whole stock in trade,
ever since we have had a connection with
journalism, has not consisted. of. "falsify
ing" and "misrepresenting." The Dis
patch is a fair sample of all, and we need
only cite its recent course on matters of local
polities, familiar to many of our citizens, to
enable the public to IFiew how much reli
ance can be placed upon its teachings. The
halting insinuation that the Observer pub
lishes statements which cannot be believed,
is untrue, and.we challenge the proof. We
may at times have been led into making
erroneous assertions, which we have ever
made it a rule to correct whenever they
were called to our attention; but we defy
a paper to be found anywhere 'which is more
generally careful in its statements than the
Observer. The Dispatch on this point fur
nishes us a fresh illustration of the old "Stop
Thief" story. It seizes anything that it can
find, which may help to prejudice the Dem
ocratic cause, with eagerness ; and when
its blunders or falsehoods are exposed, as we
have given half a dozen examples in as
many months, it refuses either to retract or
correct them, and, in the majority of cases,
goes on with their repetition as coolly as if
they had never been disputed. People *vim

WE notice in the list of speakers at Radi
cal meetings in the neighboring towns the
name of IV. 11. Burleigh, of Massachusetts,
who seems to be regarded as one of the "big
guns" of the party. The fact may not have
escaped the memory of our readers that this
man was one of the leaders of the old Aboli
tion crowd, who advocated a dissehation of ,
the 'Union, and proclaimed the Constitution
"a' league with hell and a coventuatowith
death." He was once denounced by name by
Henry Clay AS "a vile and traitorous agita
tor," in a letter - that ought to be read by
every man, woman and child in the nation.
The then who sustain the teachings of Clay
are now declared to be untrue to the Union
by these same Abolitionists, while Burleigh
' himself travels over the country mouthing
his "loyalty," and assailing men who never
'wavered in their devotion to the Constitution
as enemies of the country! The altered con
dition of public opinion could receive no bet
ter illustration than this man's record'
WE have carefully read the glo - xing re
ports of the Radical mass meeting at Corry,
on-Tuesday, as given by our Radical dotem
poraries, and are compelled to own up that
it nmst have been a monster assemblage - , The
attendance, we are led to believei could not
have numbered less than a =lion people.
The procession was huge, and eclipsed any
thing before seen. Its length was so great
that at latest' advices the tail en& had not
reached Corry yet, though the immt ;me affair
had been marching , over, two dt tys. The
speakers were the most famous man of the
country, and in thrilling Oratory P. Henry
and 11. Clay could not hold a enTulle to them.
So overwhelming was' this detnon stration,
that the poor Copperheads,Srightenc d out_ of
their wits, capitulated in despair by - the thou
sand, and it is a safe calculation to make, that
not less than fire hundred converts to the
Radical cause were made by this one znecting

political editors of the Republican,

Mr. M. is one of the staunchest Democrats in
the county, and we expect to see his services
called into frequent requisition during the
balance - of the campaign.
Tnt. abundance of money which the Radi
cals have to spend in this county may be ac:
conated for on the supposition that Mr. Sco
field has contributed his portion of the extra
pay for Radical campaign purposes. This
liould Ice a snug way of raising a fund for .
party use without any direct burden upon
the leaders. Who.can tell?
SEscr. writing our paragraph, in another
place, we learn that the Republican Com
mittee of Crawford county, by a vote nearly
unanimous, on Monday, presented ion. S.
Newton Pettis as a candidate for Congress,
to All the vacancy caused by Mr. Finney's
death. Mr: P. is endorsed by the Greenville
Argus, and will probably receive the sup

THE "irrepressible conflict" between the .
two facttons of Radicalism iu our county has
broke out afresh over the selection of Hon.

to-day. • The Lowry men arc anything but
mealy-mouthed over what they call the in
delicacy of the Chairman Of the Countiy Com
mittee in choosing his own Mier to preside
over the big meeting of the campaign.
AT every ,fire that occurs there is a certain
class of.. people who are very free in their
criticisMs of the management of the fire de
partment. Now, the wonder is that these
gentlemen, who know exactly what ought to.
he done, don't become firemen theniselves,
and remedy the faults of which they com
plain. It strikes us that a class of men who
do as much hard work for' nothing as the
firemen, ought to receive some other recom
pense than incessant fault finding.
JUDGE SCOFIELD, the Radical papers tell

an answer to the question which they are

take the 4xtra pay, after giving Lis promise
that ho wouldn't?" Perhaps his immediate

them something about it:

In writing to the Phila. Press, asking the
correction of one of the dozen falsehoods
'that paper publishes daily, fall into7a blun
der themselves, whiclkis none the less ex
cusable, in claiming to have the "largest cir
culation in North-Western Pennsylvania."
Our friends of the Herald print a good paper,
and itiedeserving of,•as it undoubtedly se
cures, a wide circulation, but that of the Ob
server still exceeds it, as we mean that it
always shall, that of any other paper in this
section. We cannot do better than repeat
its request of the Press, that: "the retraction
will be prompt, complete, mil conspicuous,.
and as generously, its blunder )val mortify-.
lug and presumably damaging."
Tun Warren Mail denies, on the 'authority
of Judge Scofield, *e'presume, that he "was
officious in ousting Young, of Kentucky and
admitting McKee to a seat in Congress. In
the Committee on Elections," it says, "Judge
Scofield with Judge Poland, of Vermont, in
variably voted for admitting the Kentucky
members. When the case came up in the
House lid neither engineered it nor votql for
McKee I ; 'Mr. Cook, of Illinois, had the case
In charge as the records -101 show." We
hope the Mail's statement ma} be correct,
and are pleased to know that nudge Scofield
is so ashamed of the:- course of dii - s fellow
Radicals in Congress that he is anxious to
wash- his hands of the transaction. The
ejection of Mr. McKee was one of the most
dikreditable acts ever perpetrated in the
Halls of Congress.
WE understand that on the evening of the
Republican proct!ssion there was a Demo
cratic meeting at S—s, in Jerusalem. Fine
speakers were - present, to address an audi
ence of four tvt4t7.—Dispatch.
The occasion -- was a club meeting for the
Fourth district, and, though, .no handbills
had been circulated, there were seventy-five
persons present by actual count—more, we
will venture to assert, than has convened at
any Radical assemblage in the - city wider-the
same circumstances. The Dispatch's injus
tice towards Democrats is becoming too
marked to be submitted to in patience any
longer. In order to retain its party standing,
the manners of that paper seem to regard it
as necessary to make their columns ten times
meaner than the meanest paper anywhere in
ABOUT a hundred and fifty Sons of Erin
met in Austin's Hall, on Saturday evening,
in accordance with the call for the organiza
tion of a Democratic club. They were all
imbued with the' true Irish fervor for the
cause, and the scenes of enthusiasm which
prevailed during the •eszel .... aing exceeded any
political meeting of the campaign. As a
preliminary step towards organization, Hon.
Wm. L. Scott was called to the chair, and
Speeches were delivered In response to calls,
by that gentleman, Jeremiah Noonan, Capt.
Dobbins, Mr. Whitman, M. A. Quinn and
others, each . speaker bringing down the
house with round after round of applause.
,elected permanent Presi
dent, P. McGinnis pqmanent Secretary, and
the name of Irish National Democratic club
was adopted. Over a hundred names were
signed to the ConstitutiOn, and it is confi
dent& believed the club will number three
hundred working members before the cam
paign closes. ..tnother meeting will be held
in the same place on Saturday evening . next,
whefi Col. Thompson will be - present, and
we promise all who attend one of the best 41
speeches they hays heard in a long tim.W...l

'Di Democrats had scores of office holders,
and.expeetants to furnish filo money, they
might indulge in such luxuries us proces
sions, torch-light parades, &c., in a style sim:
liar to the 'Radicals. As they -have none
now, have not had for tight years, and do
hot anticipate getting any through local
sources, their means are necessarily limi
ted, and they are compelled to use what little,
they have in the most economical way. We,
therefore, advise our friends to give 'up any
idea of competing with the opposition in' the
costly show 'and "fuss and feathers" which
the latter rely upon as their most effective
campaign material. ' The district and town
organizations which we have established
reach the people mord directly, are less
expensive and could be made to per
form infinitely better service, if every
man who professes to wish for Democratic
success would connect himself with them,
and lead an active part in'the work entrusted
to them. If we fail this year, it will be be
cause so many men who claim to be ardent
Democrats neglect performing their fair
share of the duty which every one who de
sires the triumph of our, principles ought to
:be willing and proud to fulfil.
A pnicE on Sunday night burned down the
large brick building at the corner of French
and Fifth streets, owned by Hon. M. B. Low
ry, and occupied by Morrison, & Dinsmore,
dealers in 'pork and beef, on' the first and
part of the second floors, and on the third
floor as a Jewish synagogue„ Mr.•F. W.
Biddle had a sleeping room on the second
floor, from which he escaped by means of a
ladder furnished by Mr. G. A. Bennett, bare
ly in time to prevent being smothered.
Mr. Lowry had an insurance of $8,500 on
the building ; Messrs. Morrison Dinsmore
had 6,000 insurance, which will cover their
loss; and the furniture of the synagogue was
insured for $3OO. The circumstances attend
ing the breaking out of the fire, lead to the
conclusion that it was caused by. incendi
aries. For a time the new Wayne Hall was.
in great danger,and the office of Benj. Grant,
Esq.!, who had just moved into the building,
was completely gutted, by the efforts' of his
fridds to avoid the los.s of his • boobs and
furniture. The "fire fiend'? seems to have a
special spite against Mr. Grant, this • being
the fifth Occasiofi, we believe, in which alias
driven him from his quarters.
WE ask in all seriousness if any of Mr. Sco
fiehrs friends can inform us whether he ever
drew that extra, pay, which was voted hit
three years ago whack was Weep? In the
last campaign he said he had never drawn it
out of the Treasury, and nercr intended to do
so! But we are nearly certain he has done
so since, leastwise he has been charged with
it, and so far as we know, has offered no
denial, either orally verbally.—Etk Advocate.
Outicotemporaryadnformed that neither
Mr. Scofield nor his friends will either an
swer yes or no to the question. We have
put it to them fur four weeks, and they are
as mum as an oyster. The public, can con
strue their conduct in but one sense, and
there are few persons in this county who
doubt that Mr. Scofield did take the extra
pay, notwithstanding , his promises ter the

gade Democrats, vii: Sickles, Wilson, Cam
eron, Putnam, Ihrtranft,,lirewster, Scofield
and . Schluembacli; and the remaining two,
Curtin and Lawrence, were both bright and
shining lights of Know-Nothingism. It
must be grateful to the fullest degree for old
Whigs, like Messrs. Walker, Reed, Babbitt
and Sterrett, and the numerous foreign born
members of the party in our city, to receive
their political inspiration from such sources.
Tun death or Mr. Fiuney nece.isitates the
election of a Congressman to fill his vacancy,
and both parties in the Crawford district are
preparing to select nominees. Judge Pettis
is being urged by his friends, but the Mead
ville Republican suggests the choice of some ,
,new man, who has not been identified with
their lodal strifes. -It would save trouble for
each side to select the candidate it. alreahv
has in the field.:
Trtgionowing paragraph appears in the
Harrisburg Patriot of Friday last :
"The. State Guard still urges us to publish
Scofield's speech. When the Patriot be
comes so destitute of news as to be compelled
to choose between publishin.g- such a tissue
of barefaced, unmitrzated falsehoods as Glen-
ni W. Seofteld's speech is made up of, and, a
blank sheet, It will choose the latter. The
Guard may suit its own taste in such matters,
and so shall we."

TITE Gazette prints an extract from a pre

and wants the Observer to "disprove its au
