Returns from the elections held on Tues
day come in with provoking slowness, and
we have nothing up to the hour of going to
press which enables us to give a reliable
statement of the result. The Radicals claim
a majority of over 10,003 in the State, but
we see nothing in, the returns which bears
them out in the estimate. No table of re
ported majorities by counties has reached us,
and it is a significant fact that the Chairman
of the Radical State Committee has ceased
sending out any More of the pompous Mille
tins which he inflicted on the public to such
a prolitid degree on the night of election.
A telegram to us on Wednesday evening.
from Mr. Wallace, says the State is close,
bat gives no encouragement to believe that
our ticket is successful. We think it likely
that the Radicals are victorious by a small
majority—probably in the neighborhood of
5,000, Philadelphia gives an average Dem
ocratic majority of over 2,500, electing our
whole city ticket, notwithstanding the exclu
sion of many hundred naturalized voters in
the Radical districts: We gain two mem
bers ót Congress in that city, and although
the -Radicals claim the Westmoreland and
Franklin districts, our opinion is that Cessna
and Covode will both be beaten. The Legis
lature is of course Radical, the State being so
districted that if the Democracy, had 30,000
majority it would: be difficult to secure as
cendancy in that body. .
Ohio is claimed Lithe Radicals by a ma
jority U. 25,000, Without any figure. to sus
tain the claim. They have probably carried
the State, but we do not believe by more than
10,000 or 15,000 majority at the utmost. The
Democrats hare gained two Congressmen,
and re-elected Gen. Morgaa, who was ej,.e tea,
at the last session. Among the gratifying
features is the defeat of Jim A-hley, the noto
rious "in - leacher." Both parties are elaioi
hag Indiana by small majorities, with the
probabilities strongly in favor of the Demo
crats. We make heavy gains in the lower
counties, and have an increase of one in our
Congressional delegation. Reports say that
the Radicals are victorious in Nebraska, by
a majority of about 2,000.
In every section the vote is enormously
large, and it is some encouragement to know
that if the Democracy are not as successful
as they wish, they are making a steady gain
upon their enemies everywhere, which indi
cates that before long we shall secure control
of all the States here mentioned.
. The Radicals have aimed to create the im
pression that Gen. McClellan was disinclined
to support the Democratic candidates. The
following letter, addressed to the Chairman
rffthe great Democratic meeting in New York,
show ; - how well founded their statements are:
Nr.w YonK, Oct. 3,1848.
Douglas 21eylor, ./.,!vy., Chairman, dc., etc.
MY DEAR SIR :---I have the' pleasure to
acknowledge the receipt of your invitation
to preside over the Deruberettit; mooting of
Monday next. I have L-ng sino determined
to abstain from farther participation in polit
ical life, and therefore find myself compelled
. 'to decline the honor you proffer me. I should
however, be glad to attend .the meeting as a
private citizen, did not engagements of a do
m,estlc nature, rendered imperative by my
long abcenoe from the country, detain me
from the city on the day in question. I gladly
avail myself of this opportunity to express my
continued hearty sympathy with the Democratic
cause, and my ardent wishes for the success of
those constitutional principles Jro which the
recent war was undertaAcn by the ~Vorth.
Separated as I thus am from the distinguished
- soldier who has been chosen as the leader of
our opponents, I know that you will agree
with rue in the highest respect for the ser
vices he has , rendered our country but it is
my conviction that the measures of the party
:chide has placed him in nomination are but
a continuance of strife, and can never restore
• peace or constitutional supremacy, and thus
complete the work which he and other bran
soldiers so ably commenced. The war was only
the first epoch in the history of the struggle
in which we have been so long engaged.
The work of the soldier is, I trust, foro-er
ended, and it remains for the people to ful
fil the great objects for which they, or their
sons and brothers, were called to the field.
A restored union of States and hearts; an in
, eigorated Constitution, to be firmly and faith
fully supported; the maintenance of the nation
al credit inviolate; a re-establishment of arttional
and State rights in all their integrity, and Oats
a true harmony and a lasting peace—these are
the objects for which every citizen should now
strife; and belieeing these to rest 'in the success
of the Dertnocratie ca+sqe, by (lie election of the
eminent statesmen select,d to represent the par
ty, it is my intoition to su quilt that rause es a
private citizen.
With - the request that you will convey to
the gentlemen of the Committee, and my oth
er friends for Alt hom you net, my sincere
thanks for-the compliment they have paid!
me, I am most truly yours,
GEO, P. Meeixt.r.‘N.
IT would appear that-the lower branch of
the Rump has set up hou , e keeping Among
its alipplivis the following :
1 griddle, 4 eullenders,2 graters, 1 dipper,
6 pans, 1 flour-sifter, 8 end saucepans, 1 fish
kettle, pans, 4 tin saucepans, 9 iron pans, 1
hod., 1 tea-kettle, 4 poles, 7 try-pans, 3 boil
ers, 1 coffee urn, 2 mashers, 1 saw, 1 meat
knife, 1 strainer. 4 ladles, 3 immers, 4 pep
pers, 2 meat-forks, 2 sifters, 4 spoons, 5 pans,
8 stamped pans, 1 boiler, 2 large cullenclers,
4 iron pans, 12 tin pans, 1 oval nrn.2 boilers.
I cleaver, 1 coffee-mill.
We don't quite understand how this is;
but it is all right, of course, in some way or
other. If it had been charged to the War
Department, we should not have lien sur
prised. Stanton probably needed something
(if the kind, when he kept himself barricaded
in his den day and night, from fear that old
/Merin, would enter into possession.
A VONTHMT.—Kentucky, like Tennessee,
was, daring and at the close of the war, filled
with heterogeneous elements. Those States
were to remain discordant and thriftless, or
to become harmonious and prosperous, ac
cordingly as bad 6r good counsels should
prevail in their management. Uniou men,
secessionists and negroes, abounded in both.
In the former, the Democratic policy of con
ciliation and good will prevailed, and a seat
of war is turned into a garden of peace and
prosperity ! In the latter the will of Stevens
and Brownlow and Congress prevailed ; and
the oldest of the "reconstructed" States is
but little better than pandemonium.
The Radletil organs have been Making
much noise over an investigation in the Su
preme Court in the city of Philadelphia,
regarding a lot of blank naturalization papers,
with the impressionof the seal of that Court
made thereon, and which papers were al
leged to have been taken from a man named.

clamor was raised. apbcars from the facts
proved before Judge Shatsv. - ..ici, during thQ
examination of the 'A man named
John Devine was arrested i l tly the police, of
Philadelphia, who are -all 'Radicals, on the
charge of aiming a pistol at a man and his
wife, passing along the street.' lie was in
toxicated, but he was in addition knocked
senseless in arresting him. While he was
lying, totally insebsible, iu the police station,
twelve forged blank naturalization papers
were, the Radical papers allege, found in the
pocket of Devine. Aft:gr his commitment,
however, he was releas&l, and every oppor
tunity given him to fly from the grave charge
made against him—of assault with a deadly
weapon. Ile did not fly, however. The Su
preme Court at Nisi Prins, which Judge
Sharswood was holding, on application to
investigate the matter Promptly, took:cogni
zance of it. Devine, who had not fled, as it
was no doubt hoped he would by those who
discharged him from custody, was befire the
Court, and testified that he lied ',tree .‘ze,i or
Laid of the blank papers alleged to have
been taken from his pocket. The papers be
ing produced, the name of James it Snow
den, the Prothonotary of the Supreme Court,
was found to be a forgery. This was shown
by the testimony of many witnesses, and by
the affidavit of Colonel Snowden, awell
known cal= of unblemished repution. A
further examination of the pretended seals
by-scientific persons satisfied the Court that
they were not genuine impressions from the
official die. They seemed to be imitations,
by the process of electrotyping. The twelve
false papers were so marked by _the Judge,
and retained in the custody of the Court. It
is upon these twelve false documents put in
to the pocket of a drunken man, in a police
station, that all the clamor has been raised
which has resulted in disfranchising thous
ands of voters throughout the State as legal
ly'entitle I tc, the ballot as any person who
exercised that privilege within its limit..
The following is part of Devine's 031C
ment :
"The last thing that I recollect was being
in a lager beer saloon drinking ; I recollect
then having a pocket hook, a watch and some
money ; (The papers in question were shown
the witness.) I never saw these papers or
any like them before; I never saw any that
had this signature; never saw any that had
this seal ; I , am positive of this ; I have seen
no one to instruct me as to how I should
conduct myself when I should come here."
_From this there can be but one conclusion
arrived at, and that is, that these papers,
whilst Devine was in a state of stupefaction
from the effects of liquor, were stuffed into,
his pockets by some tool of the Radicals,
who then procured his arrest by the police.
Upon the strength of this alleged expost
tiondbe Radicals set up a tremendous cry from
one end of the country to the other that the
Democrats were pa paring to carry the elec
tion by fraud. A superammatel radical juke
of the C mrt, Ju-tip Rea 1, wit lint

ion that it was wholly destined partizan
purposes. It appears that within the I ist
month or two, some tive or tit:mita.] p ip•-•rs

Court. Judge Read's futile pretence is thaf
the oaths were a•lministered by the tipstaves,
while he knows, and every man who has ev'-
er been in a court-room, in that enunty,kmows
that every juror and witne:ss is sworn in the
same way. Every penain naturahzii:l' in
Philadelphia, many years, in any co trt of the
city, his been sworn in the same way. The
opinion of Judge Read has called girth the'
'following merited rebuke from Chief .Tustica
Thostnon,which covers the whole case so well
that no further explanation is needed, ex.
cept to say that Judge Read made use of the
expression that all naturalizations to tile in
the Supreme Court in September areillegal."
JOIIN M. READ—De'lf Sir: Your
ter dated this day has been received by me,
but thebusiness of the Court (.Nisi Priuso has
prevented my considering its contents as ful
ly as I may hereafter do, if I find it to be a
part of my official duty to do so. There are
some things, however, which it discloses very
distinctly, and which sin Qrises me much. -
The first of these is, that without consulta
tion with me, the official organ of the
Court, you should of your own motion
have convoked for consultation Mr. Justice
Agnew and Judge Williams, in regard to the
business of the Supreme Court, and that
there should have been a consultation held
in relation to its business, without any notice
to either Justice Sharswood or myself, or any
opportunity given for either to be present. I
think is might have struck you that, if the
meeting of judges composing the Supreme
Court was to be of any consequence, or have
any significance whatever, we should have
had the opportunity, at least,.of being pres
ent. If any change of the practice in grant
ing naturalization papers from what lies been
ttettctittned by your own predict', as fully as
that of any other judges, was contemplated,
we should have had the benefit of your view
on the point, and an opportunity to express
ours, if we desired to do so. It scents to me
this would have been both reasble and'
I am more surprised, however, at the ex
pression of an extra-judicial opinion by
yourself, and which, you say, was also an ex•
pression by Justice Agnew and Judge Wil
liams, not yet a Judge of the Supreme Court,
in regard to what might perhaps become the
subject of judicial action in the Court here
after. I think you will hardly differ with me
'Et the opinion, that any pre-judg,ment ex
pressed must disqualify a judge exprissing, it
from sitting at the hearing of nny case in
which the subject of it may come in contro
versy. It will he no excuse for judges ex
pressing opinions that they n - crc not fill/y ap
prised of the ease of which they unilertake
to speak. This, let me suggest, would b a
good reason for refraining front expressin ,,
an e,xtra-judicial opinion; but, if, expresAcil, it
would not avail to qualify the judge to act,
if 'a ease should happen to come before hini
in due and legal form, involving the sonic
question. This remark is general, lint you
cannot doubt its applicability, I think, to
what is said by you about the practice ob
served in naturalizations at Nisi Prins.
- - •••
You request me to read your letter in open
court. I cannot do this. It is in no way
connected with anything before rue, either as
matter of testimony or matter ot, law. Be
sides, I must decline publishing any extra
judicial opinions of any of my brothers, es
specially so as Mr. Justice Agnewls absent,
although your letter gives me to understand
that be is of the same opinion with-yourself,
and that he will repeat that opinion at
any time hereafter. Nor can I think of cony
miffing Judge Williams to the, pledge you
make, that he n ill repeat the optnion'you ex
press as soon as, or whenever he shall be
sworn as a .Tudge of the Supreme Court,
namely : That the proceedings of the Court,
at Nisi Prins in naturaiizing aliens are voidi:
although you do not pretend that the Court
was not legally constituted and legally act
ing. Excuse Inc for entertaining the belief
that there is some mistake about this ad
vance opinion of Judge Williams—as well as
that of - Judge Agnew—on so grave a subject
as that to which you refer: but if I should
be mistaken, they must themselves give
them to the public : they cannot come
through me. If there were indeed any
grounds of comphiint that applicants for nat- !
uralization and their vouchers have Not been
sufficiently examined as to what they were
to attest, and have attested without sufficient
information, what might not be said even of
Judges deciding on what has been done with
out either seeing for themselves, or being
aided by legal proof of what has occurred?
I have not had the pleasure of seeing eith
er my brother Justice Agnew or Judge Wil
liams at the court rooms, nor even yourself
since I have been on the bench, either last
month, when I presided at several times, nor
this mon th,and what power you had to exam
ine witnesses. not being competent to form or
hold a court,as you say,l do not know. Ifthere
be error, which is not admitted in the partic
ular you complain Of, to wit : want of prop
er exanaination of witnesses. I think it must.
strike vn as quite . as grave an error in judges
assuming to express opinions Of what Wit
opinions judicial questions , without the
requisite information judicially obtained. I
abstain from the expression of any opinion
about what is established by the records.
What they contain must remain until set
aside by a enert competent to review, reverse
and set it aside; and this well known rule
applies as well to naturalization of citizens
as to any other definite art a court can per-
form. It' any questions shall ever arise as to
-to the rezuLarity and definitiveness of the
action of the court in rcgard to naturalization
or any other thing it may have done, I Rill
exprels au opinion only tiller proofs made
and hearing of the parties, or their counsel,
on the law and facts involved.

'The public have been furnished with a
full, accurate, antlautkoritative statement of
the Federal receipts and expenditures by Mr.
Alexander Delmar, Director of the Bureau
of Statistics of the Treasury Department at
Wa , liington, in answer to a letter addressed
to him by Messrs. Henry Grinnell, Royal
Phelps, and Wilson G. Hunt, of New York
city. Mr. Delmar gives a statement of re
ceipts anti expenditures, for three years, since
the close of the war ; the summing up of
which is as follows :
Register's Receipts.

The above statement shows that there has
been coliceted out of the poop*, by taxation
within three years, the enormobli sum of one
thousand six hundred millions of dollars. A
sum amounting to about •two-thirds of the
whole public debt, and yet that debt has
been reduced only one hundred and twenty
four millions in all that time. A sum, too,
equal to all the expenditures of the Govern
ment, for seventy odd years of its existence,
prior to 1861.
It shows further that there have been col
lected upward of two hundred and sixteen
millions More than have been paid out,
which excess is not in the Treasury, and
must have been stolen by Jacobin thieves.
It shows another thing—that the Jacobins
expended in 1807-8 about twenty-two mil
lions and a half more than they did in 1806-7.
This indicates which way the current is run
ning. That twenty-two millions and a half
which they have added to the expenditures
in a single year ought to meet all the necessi
ties of the Government, under a good,sonnd,
wholesome, economical, Jeffersonian admin
istration, aside from the payments on the
public debt. Instead of that, the Jacobins
have made it upward of three hundred mil
lions over and above payments on the public
More and worse than all this. According
to Mr. Delmar's statement, the expenditures
for the current fiscal year, I 868-0, will amount
to four hundretrand eightyone millions fuur
hundred and eight}•-scvcu thousand dollars,
including the Post Mice deficiency of six
millions. This increases the expenditures in
thi:: of Jacobin economy ot•er those or
last year, sixfy-six willioua and a half of dol
krs—inore than the whole expenditures of
the (4.wel amen( in 18G0. .
It Ittrthel :1111WarS that the estimated ro
e, ipti fur the current fiscal year, to meet
cApeaditares are only three himdred
and tv enty millions six hundred and-twenty
"Thus," :ay Mr. Delmar, "if the Treas
-,ury endeavors to meet its current expendi
tures this year tto say nothing of matured
claims deferred, or the Post Office deficien=
cvd it will show a deficit of $134,339,202 25
at the end of the year, to be obtained from
increased taxes or lbans."
One hundred and fifty-four millions to be
added to the public debt in a single year, and
when the Jacohins,have been trying to make
r. show of economy, to deceive the people in
the Presideiatial canvass. And should they
be successfill in retaining power there will
be - no limit to the increase hereafter.
The rich want more bonds ; to be bought
with greenbacks, and paid to them in gold,
and exempt from taxation !
The tariffites want higher duties, to in
crease their bounties
The Jacobins want more expenditures, for
the heavier they - are, the greater the steal-
Hut the poor people! What do they
11, ,, t them answer in November
Which party has most prominent rebels in
high places? Here are some choice Radical
specimens. Joseph E. Brown, of Georgia,
so much a secessionist that the confederacy
was not States' rights enough for him, and
he wanted Georgia to leave the Davis Gov
eminent and setup for itself,"outside of both
confederations." He was a Radical delegate
to Chicago. Horace Greeley, of New York,
advocated seeeksion in 1861, and said the
South were contending "for principles that
laid at the foundation of the Declaration of
Indepindenee." His advocacy carried at
least three wavering States out of the Union.
In 1863 he clasped palms with Sanders,
Tucker and Co., and prayed for peace "on
the best attainable terms." John A. Logan,
of Illinois, recruited n rebel company in 1861,
and because the company was accepted and
Logan rejected, owing to' a vigilance that
shifted out chaff down South, entered the
Federal annrc and is now a Radical member
of Congress, and the reported original of
Doesticks'"Damphool." Butler and Stokes,
now Tennessee Radical Congressmen, were
ardent rebels at the start and are Radical
rebels still. Hunnicutt, of Virginia, the hot
te:,t blood-and-whiskey secessionist in the
State at the beginning of the war, now car
ties the Radical party of that State in his
breeches' pocket. Bennett, of the Herald, an
original rebel, was compelled to hoist a Fed
eral flag by a mob, went right over into the
Radical party, and named Grant as their
nominee in advance. 'These are only a few,
but they will 'serve."
It is just as well to bear in mind on what
basis the reconstructed State governmee
of the South stand. These governments are
based on the bogus constitutions, the bogus
constitutions were framed by carpet-bageon
venttons, and the carpet-bag conventions
were thus called—all the States wherein the
official figures have been made Entblie being

Total 85,407 283,233 002,402
It will have been seen, using round num
bers, that in calling these pretended conven
tions the negro vote in Georgia and North
Carolina was 2 to 1 ; in Alabama, 4 to 1; in
Florida, 12 to 1; and in South Carolina, 30
to 1! If this kind of 'thing is not in effect a
Liberia it would be hard to say what would
be. These 283,233 negroes are, in the fruit
of this plant, seen in 104 surreptitious Sena
tors, 23 carpet-bag Congressmen, and 33 votes
in the Electoral College. Well is it written;
From Africa the negro came,
Arise, 0 Congress ! bless his name.
For, without him what would the Radicals
who make up that body do to perpetuate
their power. Shall this thing stand?
FIGHT Arabs have been sentenced to im
prisonment for life in Algeria for the trivial
offense of eating frleaseed baby.
Albert Piles is frequently cited by the rad
ical press is iirepreseittative of the most ul
tra violent class at the south. In a sptech
the other day at St. Louis, this gentleman
spoke as follows:
" The man Who says that we who arc now
designated as rebels do not intend in good
faith to support the constitution and lablar
for the preservation of the Union, tells yon a'
falsehood: Ile lies in his teeth, and I have
no hesitation in saying so. [Great cheers.]
It is not the honorable federal soldier who
makes the charge, but the sneak who never
saw the tentrAtield, and who never flamed to
enter personally into the fight. [Cheers.] I
desire to testify my appreciation of the kind
ness and magnanimity of the federal soldiers,
who, were it left to them to decide, would
settle our difficulties aronce justly and gen
erously toward all. [Cheers. I say it with
pride that never since the c ose of the war
have ; been treated discourteously, never an
unkind look nor an unkind word from the
operq manly federal soldier. They fought
nobly,] 1 they fought successfully, they know
how t!trleat a brave and manly foe. And if
you giv.Qgonfidence to the honest and cour
ageous people of the south ; if you take the
bayonet from their lips; if you enfranchise
them and trust them, I. pledge you the word
of a man, nye I pledge you the honor of my
race, that we will in good faith discharge all
the obligations
,imposed upon us by the con
stitution, all our duties under the Union."

A sharp contest is going on in the Fifth
Massachusetts district over the election of a
Congressman. The district is heavily Radi—
cal, and a split has occurred, Ben Butler be
ing the regular nominee, and Mr. Dana the
candidate of the bolters. Among the ene
mies of Butler is Mr. Atkinson, the gentle
man whose recent financial speech has at
tracted so much Radical admiration. Ile
gives the following advice to the people of
the district:
"General Butler asks your support; he
promises you a great gain ; he has discovered
a gold mine in which • all shall share except
the bondholder. Not long since a green
looking Vermonter walked into the office of
Mr. C. T. Jackson, the chemist, and having
looked behind the sofa, and satisfied himself
that no one else NY MI in the room, ho pined
a large bundle, done up in a yellow bandana,
on the table and opened it. 'What do, you
call that, Doctor ? 'I call it iron pyrites.'
'What !' said the man, 'isn't that stuff gold ?'
'No,' said the Doctor, 'it's good for nothing ;
it's pyrites; and putting some over the fire
in a shoyel, it evaporated up the ,chimney.
'Wa'al,' said the poor fellow, with a 'woe-be
gotten look, 'there's a widder woman in ours

At a speech at Boston, A. - 0. Brewster,
Esq., of that city, related the following 'story
to illustrate the way in which thousands of
Republicans continue to vote for their party,
though convinced that it is wrong : "I once
had occasion to journerwith my father into
Vermont, and at noon he stopped at a cowl-,
try inn and took dinner. - Ass we were eat
inn, a huge Vermonter, about ix feet seven
in his boots, with immense jaws, came in and
began to devour everything before him. At
last some hot apple-dumplings were placed
on the table. Ile put one into his mouth and
began to chew it. It was very hot, and he
commenced to make contortions of the face,
ang exhibited signs of distress. I Said, 'You'd
better drop it' But he continued to chew,
and as it opened under his teeth it grew still
hotter, and he scowled still worse. I
said,' You'd better drop'it,' and as he still
exhibited the most fearful agony, I repeated
the remark. ' Boy he replied angrily, hav
ing got a part of it down so that he could
talk, it's easy enough for you to say drop it ;
but, (I—n the thing, I'll mailer it, if it busts
Hon. Howell Cobb, of Georgia, died at the
Fifth Avenue Hotel, in New York city, on
Friday, of apoplexy, the attack being so sud
den that he was unable to speak prior to his
demise. Mr. 'Cobb was born in Jefferson
County, Georgia, on the 7th. of September,
1815. When a child, his father removed to
Athens, Georgia, where he has since resided.
He graduated at Franklin College M 1834 ;
he studied law and was admitted to the bar
in 1836. In '1837 he received the appoint
ment of-Solicitor-General of the Western Cir
cuit, whelp he held four years, and lie was
elected a representative to Congress in 1842,
having been re-elected in '44, '46 and '4B, and
during his latter term he was elected speak
er. On his retirement from Congress he was
chosen Governor of Georgia. In 183-i he
was again elected to Congress, and on the
accession-of Mr. Buchanan lo the Presidency,
Gov. Cobb went into his' Cabinet as Secreta
ry of the Treasury. He took •a prominent
part in the rebellion of 1861, and was a mem
ber of the Confederate Congress and a briga
goleral of the Confederate army.
The ovation given to Gen. McClellan in
his native city of Philadelphia, on Tuesday
of la week, was the grandest affair of . the
kind that ever took place in the country.
The oldest inhabitant freely acknoWledges
that Philadelphia never before experienced
such a rushing, crushing ground-swell, such
a perfect upheaval of humanity, as she did
on that occasion. Chestnut street From
Fourth to BrJad, and -Broad from. Chestnut
to Spring Garden, was one dense mass of
people, with t every door, window,- and most
of the house-tops filled. The procession was
'from nine to ten miles In length, requiring
two hours and alialf to pass a given point.
It was not strictly partisan. Nevertheless
very few but Democrats took part in it;
while the feeling and enthusiasm of thC tens
of thousands of spectators indicated that
their sympathies were almost unanimously
with the Democrats. It was a proud day for
the Democracy of Philadelphia.
telegraphic despatch from Norfolk to the N.
Y. Herald announced that Governor Wells,
of Virginia, has commuted the sentence of
Benjamin Jefferson, a negro,to imprisonment
for life. The negro had been sentenced to
be,hanged on the Bth of October for an out
rage upon • Miss Sarah Ford. Perkins, a
white man, who had been condemned to the
same penalty for his participation in this out
rage, was 'lanced. • Thus the white man was
taken and the negro was left. A political
pretext for the difference in the fate of the
two men has been assigned—"the congress
ional district in which the outrage took place
gives seven thousand negro majority." In
view of this e4pordinary case who shall say
that the negro has no rights which white
tnen'are bound to respect ?

A few years ago Governor Seymour, being
in delicate health, spent the summer months
in Wisconsin with a friend, with whom be
made frequent excursions on and around
Green Bay. On one of these pleasure trips,
while sailing on the bay, they were verta
ken by a severe thunder stordovitich was as
sudden as it was 'violent, and which caused
them to row rapidly to shore m search of a
temporary,shelter. Upon landing, they es
pied a lotV log cabin, into, which they en
tered, and found it tenanted by an old sailor
and his wife. With the "yarning" propensi
ty of the tar and the garrulousness natural to
an 010 man, tie quickly mode his visitors ac
quainted with his past 'life:recounting the
many hardships he had undergone- and the
heavy losses he had su.itained at various try
ing periods of hislire. Everything around
thotigh scrupulously neat and clean, be,
tokened needy want, almost to destitution,
the 'furniture being of the poorest and scan
tiest. By this time the storm had abated and
the weather was again fine. The friend of
the Governor took his leave, thanking the
old sailor for the shelter he had afforded him.
Waiting for Governor Seymour to join him,
he took up aposition near the window of the
cabin where he could command a view of
the whole interior without being observed.
Ile saw the hands of the poor man and his
rich visitor joined, bidding eaelrother adieu.
He also noticed when th9.;e same hands part
ed that a glittering twenty dollar gold piece
lay in the horny palm of the sailor, who was
invoking the blesings of Almighty Col upon
the beneficent donor. lie saw, too, that
tears were standing in his friend's eyes, and
heard him charge the old man to apply to
him for relief should he again find himself In
seed of assistance. The noble act was per
formed, as Seymour thought, with no one to
witness it except his humble hostess and the
all-seeing Creator of the universe.
IT has been ascertained that the statement
that Judge Chase was for Grant and Colfax
was concocted in Washington, land tele;
graphed over the country for effect on
the October elections: Chief-Justice Chase
expressed his indignation to a friend en Sat
urday at the unauthorized use
_of liks name.
In the course of the conversation 14emphat
jenny contradicted the statement, and it may
be properly added, that, so far from support
ing the Radical tickk, he said , ho .wits op
posed to the excesses of that party, which
had driven thousands from their ranks. He
remarked that he considered Mr. Seythour
honest and pure, and believed he would ad
minister the Government upon strictly Cdn
stitutinnal principles.

The above advertisement appears in all
the leading Republican papers, not exactly
in the same language nor yet in the adver
tising columns. But still the advertisement
is Olin to see, sticking otit of their editorials,
their squibs and their bogus dimpatches:
From the days of Weeding Kansas down to
the present, the radical party has thrived up
on bloodshed and riots, which they have
themselves for the most part incited, and if
they cannot keep up their stock in trade,
they will have to 440 under and make an as
sigmpent. •

held, on Tuesday of last Week, in Delaware,
the result of whichlas not been telegraphed
by the' Radical operators. In the city of
Wilmington the Radical majority was_ only
; in September (last mouth) it was • 314,
showing a Democratic gain of 402 votes in
less than a mouth. The noise made by the
Radical papers, in September, over the elec
tion of a Radical Mayor in Wilmington by
314 majority, which -they claimed' was a
large gain, has hardly yet .dieir away. New
Castle county gives a Democratic majority
of RJ, and the State gives a majority of over
three thou Sand.
days ago John Covode, Radical candidate
for Congress in the Westmoreland district,
made oath against E. J. Keenan, Esq., Depu
ty Chairman of the Democratic State Com
mittee at Pittsburgh, charging hint with col
onizing voters into Westmoreland county,
and had him arrested. At the hearing, on
the 7th, the charges were withdraifn, and
Mr. Ken= discharged—the prosecution
paying the costs. Of course John was, in
this instance, only trying to cover up his own
tracks—another practice of the "stop thief "
cry. .

dated the Bth, sass:—"The election news
