Scofield's majority, 2,548.
The\majority for Judge Scofield in 1866
was 2,041, showing a loss for him of :8 on a
heavily increased poll. In Warren county,
the homof ' both the candidates, Scofield
runs 55 votesbehind the Radical State tick
et, and Judge Brown receives 52 votes more
than the Democratic, showing a total loss for
the former of 107. In Erie County Scofield
has 68 less than his party majority; in Mc-
Kean - 115, and in Cameron he gains 1. Judge
Brown leads the Democratic majority 22
votes in Jefferson, 84 in Clearfield, 14 in Elk,
and he makes a gain of 12 in Forest. The
aggregate loss In majorities for Scofield is,
209, and the galas Tor Brown 89, making the
majority of Scofield 291 less than his party
vote in this district. Judge Brown has not
made the inroad upon his competitor that
was anticipated by some of his friends, but
when the circumstances are considered he
has done exceedingly well. Had the Presi
dential contest been out of the way, he would
have received a much heavier - support from
the Opposition, and stood a fair chance of
election. It will be noticed that without the
Vote of Erie county, the district would be
about 550 ngain.t the Radicals.
Tits Gazette, in copying our table of the
increased prices which Radicalism obliges
the people topey in prder to raise the revenue
required for keeping up their extravagance
and revolutionary schemes, adds the follow-
"This tax is laid on us to pay off the debt
incurred to save the United States from be

the South. The simple question is—how
shall we raise it? It is more than half raised
by tariff. The Democracy propose instead
of that to lay a direct tax on " the full value
of every species of property," and . have an
army of tax gatherers. We prefer a tariff to
Wrong, as usual, Mr. Hypocrite. The lac
is not used to pay off the debt, for that is
steadily increasing. It is " laid on " because
your party inaugurated and has successfully
established a system of rascality and misrule
which hes no parallel In the world's history,
and more than trebles the ordinary expenses
of the Government. Stop the swindling of
the treasury, reduce the army and navy, re
move the thousands of Useless office holders,
restore the South to a condition where it will
be an advantage instead of a burthen to the
nation, and introduce economy into all the
departments, and the time will soon be at
hand when taxation will be solight scarce

make all classes pay their exaet share of the
necessary revenue, hot they go better still,
and "propose"-`,,to reduce the taTes to the
lowest possible requirement.
Tnt: Democrats of the city and county
should be particularly careful to have good
poll committees'in every district on Tuesday.
We lose many votes each year by a failure
to have this important matter attended to.

Few of the pmmtuerit Democrats pursue the
same course, and the duties on the day of
election are thrown upon those who can
poorly afford to perform them.' Many of Our
most efficient workers have stood at ,the
polls year after year, without thanks or re
ward, and it is due to them, no less than to
the cause, that they should have the co-oper

ranzement effected by which larger poll com

party, and that all will agree to remain the

Tax Crawford Democrat coincides with
us in a poor opinion of the policy of holding
large mass meetings in localities where our
party is heavily In the minority. Referring to
the one held there on the Saturday before
the election, it says it was " a monster in
size—probably the largest ever held in Craw
ford county — but, like all similar politiCal 1
means, it does not appear; that much good re
sulted from it. We 'would rather beat the
RadicalS at the polls than outnumber them
in mass meeting." Our belief has oftenbeen
expressed, and recent events only confirm it,
that If our friends In this section would de
vote one-half the time and means expended
in getting up costly meetings, to distributing
papers, thoroughly canvassing their districts,
and securing The attendance of Democratic
voters at the polls, the party would gain
vastly by it. The only two campaigns in
which the Democratic party was successfhl
to Pennsylvania, within the last eight years,
were those of 1862 and ISM, both of which
we won wholly by quiet effort.
Gov. Serum' tilt-nrier
By the advice of amen of ;his immediate
political friends, Gov. Seymour started from
his home in Utica, U. Y., on Wednesday' of
last week,•for a tour over a portion ofthe
Western and Middle States, with the main
object of expressing to the people In Person
his views upon the political issues. at stake.
His progress through the State of New York
was a continued series of ovations, the manses
everywhere exhibiting a degree of enthusi
asm and personal affection that mast have
been peculiarly gratifying to him On
Thursday, he reached Buffalo, *where he
made the first set speech of his journey, a
faithful report of which is given in another
place. The meeting was held in the Skating
Rink, at the corner 'of Niagara and Peach
streets, which was handsomely deCorated for
the occasion. The building is estimated to
hold ten thousand persons, and was crammed
to its utmost capacity. It was Impossible
for more than one-fourth of the crowd to
hear his remarks, and, in consequence, peo
ple were constantly going out and others
taking their places, so that, on a fair esti
mate, probably not less than twenty-five
thousand persons were present during the
On Friday mbrning, .Gov. Seymour, ac
companied by Ron. Sanford E. Church, Hon.
Francis Kiernan, Hon. Richard &hell, and
other prominent' gentlemen, started from
Buffalo in a special car for the West. At
Dunkirk, Westfield and North East, lie was
greeted by large Concourses of people, who
hailed his presence by spontaneous outbursts
of enthusiasm that strikingly evinced the
hold he possesses upon the hearts of his fel-
The first intimation of the coming of the
distinguished party was rmeiverl in our city
about two hours before the arrival of the
train. Handbills announcing the event were
at once distributed, knoll's band and a
cannon engaged, and an immense crowd
gathered at the depot to welcome their ap
pearance. As the train approached the de
pot, cheer after cheer made the welkin ring,
the cannon boomed firth its greeting, and
the band played with a degree oeenergy and
sweetness that seemed to be inspired by the
occasion. Mayor Noble and other leading
citizens of both parties stepped into the car,
and were introduced to the Governor. The
!ople insisted upon having him make a
speech, and, in response to their calls, he
appeared on the rear platform of the car.
He was introduced by W. L. Scott, Esq.., and
spoke as follows:
"I did not expect to meet here this great
concourse of people. I' have gone out to
speak to the citizens of this country upon the
questions which now agitate thepublic
mind. It is said that lam an interested man,
and so I am, and is etery max who pays
taxes and helps to support this Government.
How would it be if none of those who had
an interest in this contest were to take part
in it ? Would Pennsylvania have voted for
the Republican ticket a little while since if
every office-holder had staid away from the
contest? I find when I look over the list of
Government officials that they number more
than sixty thousand. I contend that with
the impartial people who have no other re
lationship with this Government than that of
taxpayers and good citizens, and who have
nod irect personal interest in what the Dem
ocratic party does, we have a great and com
manding majority. I cannot address you
now at length upon the questions of the day.
lam soon to leave here, anti time will nut
permit my doing so I can only give you
one or two words of exhortation. We are
now about to.perform a great .and solemn
duty, and one that is to.he far-reaching in its
consequences. Whatever our "political views
may be, they should be exercised fearlessly
and honestly. No man can afford now to
cast his vote for any consideration but .the
good of his country, for upon this election
hang many things that concern not only Its
present but also Its future welfare. Let us
lay aside passions and prejudices, and consi
der the questions upon which we are to act
in a calm, fair, dispassionate', and patriotic
method. I impeach no man's patriotism be
cause he does not think as I think ; I impugn
no man's motives because ho cannot see
things as I see them. I only exhort all men,
whatever their political views may he at this
time, to reflect when they enter upon the
solemn duties of the day as to what is for the
best interests of our country. We are prone
I to indulge too much in invective and abuse:
Let us not act upon our prejudices against
each other. Let us not be influenced by the
pictures which maybe drawn of the candi--
I dates for office, for I may say tar my political
opponent, as well.as for myself, that no man
ever contemplated the duties of the office of
President of the 'Called States without being I
filled with the most earnest desire to do his
dirty to himself and to do his duty to the
hold which we all love. I cannot speak to
yOu longer. lam accompanied byotherand
more eloquent men, who may address you
upon the questions of the day. lam wearied
by my exertions. Wherever I have been,
our citizens have poured out, as they have
done here, because there is something in the
condition of our Government that makes
thoehtffil men anxious. t trust that so far
as the Executive office is concerned, if the
people see fit to trust it to the • Democratic
nominees, they may prove at least earnest
and honest, however tar they may come short
in serving the country as they Would wish to
do. I bid you good-bye, my triends, of
whatever party, and may God, in his mercy,
bless this great land. of ours for our own
good, and for the good of those who are to
come after us."
Hon. Francis Kiernan followed in a speech
of some length, and was heartily applauded.
He read a dispatch to Gov. Seymour from
Cleveland stating that West Virginia had
gone Democratic, which created the wildest
enthusiasm. The train remained at this city
about half an hour, and hundreds of persons
availed themselves of the privilege of taking
our candidate by the hand, alitj expressing
him their wishes for success._ Similar dem.
onstrations attended the 'distinguished party
all along the route to Cleveland, and Gov.
Seymour made brief speeches at Ashtabula
NATURALIZED CJITZEN• 4 .—At the late elec
tion, quite a number OE, foreigners who had
lost their naturalizatioit papers, presented
certificates of admission to citizenship from
the clerks of the courts where they had re
nounced their allegiance to the country of
their nativity. In nearly evcry instance
where Itadients had control of the election
boards, the votes of these persons were rejec
ted, end if tbe result in this city is a criterion
by which to judgo the whole county, a hun
dred or more votes must have been lost by
this means. That the course pursued was in
violation of law cannot be disputed. The act
of the Legislature in regard to 'naturalized
voters provides fat' just such eases. Defining
the proofs of their right to suffrage which
may be required of naturalized voters, it
says ; .
"That having been an alien, he has been
naturalized conformably to the laws of the
United States: and as the ONLY eridenee
thereof, he shall produce a et rfryieate-thereof,
under the seal of the court where such. natu
ralipttion took place."
- It, would seem that no election ()nicer
would dare to refine the, vote Of a per Son
holding a certificate of naturalization, -in the
teeth of this explicit sentence, yet; strange as
it may appear, after it had been pointed nut
to them, inspectors and judges in this city
persistently denied the right of snffraFe th
men who Were just as leg:till's entitlCtl it it as
themselves. This, too, after they had taken,
an oath to conduct the proceedings of the
board " as directed by law," that they would
" impartially and faithfully" perform their
duties, and that they would not " vexatiously
delay or refuse to receive any vote " from a
person qualified under the Constitution and
acts of, Assembly. We do not know what
others may call such conduct, but, to us it
does not appear diflictilt to ascertain the cor
rect name. •
It is to be hoped that at the next election,
the Radical boards will have sufficient re
gard for their oaths tp refime no more votes
in defiance of. 114(. If they persist in viola
ting, the clear ter of their duty, the Demo
crats of the respective districts owe it to
their own self respect to_ have an example

for the 'sake of their reputations, that the gen
tlemen alluded to will do no. such thing.
The man who voted with us two weeks ago,
did so through 'principle, and it will speak
poorly for his character to let defeat overawe
him to the extent of deserting his cherished
convictions. Among all nations, those are re
spec64 the most who stand true to their faith
in defiance of every obstacle. Desertion in
the face or the foe is everywhere regarded as
one -of the basest of crimes. The noblest
characters In history are those who have
lattlrd against wrong when popular tumult
and official terrors beset them the wildest.
Igo person who has any. respect' for himself
or lila name will permit a temporary dis
couragement to weaken his efforts for the
cause he loves, much less abandon It for the
side of its enemy. The Democratic party
has suffered defeat before, and yet retained
Its courage as defiantly as ever. It will be

those who have stood by it through good and
evil report will have a record to boast of
which they would not exchange at any price.
We make our appeal to young Democrats
especially, who are supposed to be most
-easily Influenced by the varying phases of
public opinion. It is to them that the Radi
cals look most for an increase of their strength,
and upon this class of our voters will their
seductive labors be mainly directed. Young
men, stand firm ; he true to your consciences
and best interests. The qUestions at issue
concern you more than they do those of older
age. Yon are soon to take their places, and
by the time you have assumed the stations in
life which are assigned you, the evils of Radi
cal misrule will have burst nport the country
in their lull development. taral firm, then,
and prove that yon are worthy qons of Amer
Tot Meadville Republican, which claims
to be the fhvorite organ of the Radical party
in Crawford county, in its isstte of the 16th
inst., 'thus referred to our voter of Irish na-
tiv,its , :1
"They are the most clamorous of all men
against "nem equality," but- a' majority of
them are wither as intelligent nor as good citi
zens as the negroes. To disfranchise our col
ored citizens and give the ballot to the ignor
ant Irish is a reproach to our civilization.
The next battle we hare in Pennsylvania (in
November) must be to give the right of suf
frage to the black inan."
We commend this paragraph to:the atten
tion of the Irish Republican club of this city.
The handful of gentlemen who comprise that
novel organization doubtless imagine that
the ado which Is made over them by the Radi
cals is all sincere and much to their glory.
The Republican's remarks may open their
eyes to the truth that they are being used
for a purpose, and enable them to appreciate
the real sentiments which the Radicals en
tertain towards their race. No man whO has
watched the course of Radical papers can
honestly deny that the Republican speaks
the general belief of its party. Other organs
may be more discreet, but there is a current
of hostility against Irishmen running through
th'e columns of all, which shows that if they
only dared. it would soon lutist out in favor
of open disfranchisement' Polities afford
many curious spectacles, but the oddest sight
of all is to see Irishmen casting their iniluence
and votes for a party nine-tenths of whose
members endorse the view expressed le' the
Tiui total increase (of debt) from Sept. Ist,
186 ,to Sept. Ist, 1(68, is $42,8311,1138-- 7 almost
forty-three million dollars :.year ! That is the
way the Radicals manage nnr debt and taxes.
First, about 35,000,01N3 of this alleged in
crease arc in Pacific Railroad bonds—inter
est and principal th be paid by the railroad.
Seeond, $167,000,000 reduction of taxes have
•en made. Third, a paper which would
keep back these explanations would falsify
the figures, in any other way, to deceive its
readers, and we have to look with suspicion
upon the statement of our cotemporary.—
First. The Pacific It. R. bonds are as touch
a part of the. debt as thcke issued for any
other purpose. If the company pay the in
terest for any considerable period, or the
principal at all, they will be the most lion6t
corporation of which we liave a record. But
these bonds art:only a portion of the increase.
/105 y will you explain :iway the nearly eight
millions additional ? :. -
Second. The "reduction of. taxes" is only
- estimated;and;yon can give rro facts to sus
tain the . assertion. The expenses• of the
Government are' not diminished, and must_
be met pi some way. If the taxes hare been
reduced, it is only for political effect, and the
demantbi of the treasury will require their
Third. A paper which so habitually vitl
Inks the Ninth Commandment as the Gazette,
will naturally suspect its cotempomries of
the same vile. practice, and it is not to be
wondered at that it should try to drag others
down to Its mVnievel.
THE object to which every Democrat in
Eric county should beset himself now is to
secure a poll of our full party strength next
Week. The Opposition boastingly assert
that our party is too much discouraged to
make anotha'effort, and confidently predict
an increase of their majority in the county in
November. We believe, on the other hand,
that it ran be reduced, and if all dur friends
feel as we do, it trill be. Five hundred Dem
ocrats in this county remained away from
the polls on the 13th inst., foolishly Imagin
ing the result was not one of material conse
quence. The Radicals had every man out,
and can poll few, if any more votes, than
they did two weeks 'ago. The point to be
alined at now is the securing of every Demo
cratic vote in the county. We need no noisy
or expensive demonstrations to do this. A
day spent by each of our leading men in the
several districts, in going about among their
neighbors, encouraging the disheartened,
drumming np the negligent, and reminding
the faithful of their duty, wily accomplish
woilders. Let all make it a special consider
atlem to see their neighbors, and have them
out on election day. A gain of five votes in
each election district, will give the State to
Reymonr and Blair.
WE were met on our return home last
week, with the sad intelligence of the death
of W. W. Lyon, Esq., a young man whose
brilliant intellect and many good qualities
rendered him one of the most promising in
the city. An ardent Republican and an ac
tive member of that party, hex was a person
of too much judgment to beconr a mere
slave to prejudice, and in his bearing to
wards Democrats was courteous, manly and
charitable. Our intercourse with him bad
been long and intimate, and we had learned
to esteem him with more than common friend
ship. He possessed talents of a rare order, a
firmness of will seldom found in the young
men of this age, and au enew- that knew no
bounds. His death' is' a loss that will
be widely felt, and by none will it be
more sincerely regreted titan among the
younger classes of our citizens, to whose
pleasure and advantage he was ever one of
the foremost In contributing.
Tint total vote .of the city at the late elec
tion was 2,198, against . 1,924 in 1868, an in
crease in two years of 272. At an average of
eight persons to one voter, this would give
us a populition within the city proper of 17,-
568, and a gain Ancona of 2,178. The vote
of ,South Erie was 245, which would give a
population of 1,980, Adding this-to the num
ber in the city and the suburbs east and west,
we are safe in claiming for ,Erie a resident
/population of about 20,000 souls. The same
proportion In the the county would give a
population of 97,884.

DEMOCRATS of Erie county, remember that

TUE bringing of a host of negro laborers

Erie has cre.ated considerable feeling among

to look on it as an, unwarrantable infringe

labor is not too plenty, at the best, such a
course was well calculated to arouse the
serious apprehensions of our white working
classes. It is not fair that men who are per
manent residents, and who help to pay the
expenses of these imftovenynts, should be
thrust aside for the 'sake of giving employ

Tnn reception of Gov. Seymour on Friday,
was attended by an accident that will be
learned with regret by the. many friends of ,
the gentleman to whom it happened. When
the ceremonies were- concluded, tite train
started suddenly, F. F. Marshall, Esq., who
stood on the rear platform, was precipitated
to the ground with considerable force, and in
the fall his right leg caught in themiling,
sustaining a serimis fracture just below the
knee. .He has suffered terrible pain from the
broken limb, and may be Compelled to keep
his room for a long period. Could he hear
the sympathy and kind feeling universally
expressed in his behalf, it would go far to
mitigate his sufferings.
TnE le-election of ;lir hasr'-rint

a table showing the way in, which he run s
behind his ticket in every county , except

tinuing to war upon the chosen leaders of
Its party whom it considers unirtirthr of
