Vote of Erie County.
- The election on Tuesday was conducted
with a remarkable degree of order in our
county, and no person coming in from
abroad would have supposed that anything
unusual was transpiring unless he visited the
Immediate 'vicinity of the polls. Both par
ties exhibited considerable interest in the re
sult, though not equal to that shown at the
October election. The Republicans were
sanguine of success, and worked with a pro
portionate amount of energy ; the Democrats
looked upon the verdict in October as deci
ding their fate, and fought against hope with
as much spirit as could be expected under
:rcumstances. Many Democrats felt it
seless to vote and remained away from
. the polls, while a few weak-kneed ones—Ao
their shame be it said—gave way to their
fears and individual interests, and deserted
the principles they once held.
A glance over the table below will show
that the Republicans have increased their
vote, while ours bas fallen off slightly in
many localities. The - causes which led to
this are too familiar to need explanation.
The Democracy made a much more gallant
fight than their opponents anticipated, and,
in consideration of the facts—with defeat
staring them inevitably in the face, with the_
official and monied influence of the country
enlisted against them,with the depression in
cident to a defeat iii October—thestrength
they exhibited is a wonderful testimonial to
the devotion to, principle and unfaltering
courage of our party organization. All hon-•
or to the gallant men who have stood so
bravely by the cause in the midst of such dis
couraging obstacles, :and may they all be
spared to witness the ultimate triumph of
justice and co stitutional rights :

AN Ott CREEK IN EUROPE.-By the for
eign accounts we are told of newly discovered
sources of mineral oil in Europe, which are
being worked to a large . extent. The latest
. and most important found are in Galicia.
In the Western part of, this province, it is
Said, petroleum abolinds, principally in the
mountains enclosed by Limanowa, Neusan
dec, Gritow, Cieskowice, porlice, and
Sbyszyce: Tae superficial area,covered by
the basins discovered, probably amounts to
about 50,000 acres. The soil is represented
to be so impregnated with the oil that it
frequently issues in the form of small springs,
and it is only necessary to bore a few feet
below the surface soil to reach an ample de
posit. Sufficient importance has been at
tached,to the discovery to induce the employ
ment of several American geologists and en
gineers for scientific investigation, and, ac
cording to the accounts received from these
parties, the little stream known as the Dun
ajec is in a fair way to become the Oil Creek
of Europe. The authorities who have ex
amined the article produced and visited the
country consider that the petroleum found in
Eastern Galicia is like that obtained in Can
ada, and .that • the article found in Western
Galicia is ahnost identical with that found in
Pennsylvania. It is stated that' in the latter
section there are sources which, for parity
and abundance of yield, are not equalled by
the_ wells of any portion of this country ;
and thatif they are intelligently and enter
prisingly worked they will open the way to
magnificent fortunes.
TUE census of Clevelanitlately taken,gives
that city .a population of 85,P.98.
EXECUTION AT nuicsus.—Thomas Mc-
Carty was bung at Franklin, on Wednesday,
of last week, for the murder of David Barry,
last May, in French Creek township, Venan
go county. It was the first execution ever
held there. The evidence shows the murd'er
to have been deliberately planned and most
revolting in its nature. McCarty went to
Barry's house, and was received as a guest
with much kindness. Ile had staid several
days, when one night as Barry and his wife
lay in bed they were aroused by the snap
ping of a percussion cap. Looking up, they
saw McCarty standing by their side with a
revolver in his hand. Barry, thinking Mc-
Carty to be in Brion, said "op, Tom be
quiet," when the latter replied " I'll kill the
pair o' ye.', The words had no Sooner been
spoken than he fired, and shot Barfly' in the
breast, the pistol being within three feet of
the bed. McCarty fled at once, and Mrs.
Barry hastened to a neighbor's, on her re
turn finding the clothing on fire from the near
ness of the pistol when it exploded. The
wounded man died the next day, and Mc-
Carty was soon after arrested. After con
viction he exhibited the 'most wonderful in
difference up to a short time of the execution,
when he wished for a spiritual adviser. Rev.
J. IL Tagg visited him for a few days, but he
wasnot satisfied, and wanted a priest called
in. Rev. Fathers Coady, Docker and Madi
gan were his attendants after that until his
death, the two latter being with him on the
gallows. The execution took place in the
jail yard, in the presence of a limited num
ber of spectators. McCarty mounted the
gallows with. a steady step, and looked at the
beam and rope . for an instant, but evinced no
emotion.' The black cap was drawn over
his head, the trap sprung, and the body of
McCarty-hung suspended in the air.' Life
was 'extinct in_ seven minutes, though the
body was not cut down for twenty.
Attot:r the funniest occurrence of the sea
son was the frantic efforts of certain Repub
lican leaders to intimidate voters who had
heretofore acted with their party. from cast-.
ing their ballots for the Democrats. At all
elections, as is well known, both parties usu
ally h:ive tickets printed nearly similar , to
their opponents, for the use of such voters as
feel a delicacy in having their position
known to the other side. To head off this
crass of persons, the Republican managers of
this county went to the trouble of having
headings specially engraved for each elec
tion. Their , tickets were carefully printed,
and par ties stationed to watch over the work
men so that none were extracted, the forms
destroyed or put under lock and key as soon
as the press work was finished, only the most
reliable party wheel-horses were entrusted
with their distribution, and all Were cau
tioned to allow none of the sheets to get into
the handS of Democrats before election day.
Strange to tell, the Democracy obtained
possession of as many as they needed, and
all these painful precautions proved of no
avail. The shrewd men who man,rvured
the matter never imagined for a moment
that it was an easy thing to paste their snug
ly engraved headings at the top of the list of
Democratic electors in the one instance, and
to use "stickers" in the other, thus obviating
all difficulty at small expense and trouble.
The DCMOOMPV (MTV Pone Erna omen thanha
for putting them on the track of a plan by
which they will obviate the cost of getting
up extra tickets at every election.
GEN. THOMAS A. ROWLEY, United States
Marshal for the Western District, was in the
city last week, on business connected with
his office. Gen. Rowley is an obliging and
deservedly popular officer, but being a Radi
cal Republican and warm supporter of Gen.
Grant, is not entirely acceptable to the John
son wing of the Democracy at Pittsburgh.
Their attempt, however, to compass his re-
moval, a few months ago, resulted only_ in
a discovery of their real motives and purpos
es and ')in consequent disappointment to
- tlovaselves.—Republican.
What can the above mean? Is it a slap at
oui amiable and distinguished friend, Col.
Brown o wbose , name, it is well known, was
sent into the Senate ; "a few months ago," for
confirmation in the place of Gen. Rowley?
Surely the.Colonl4 was never in sympathy
with "the Johnson wing of the Democracy,"
or if he was, he has done suMcient penance
since to entitle him to full forgiveness! After
the many "loyal" bulletins he has issued as
commander of the Tanners, and the heroism
he has displayed at the head of that patriotic
organization, such covert assaults upon his
party fealty seem the basest ingratitude!
REV.S I .;MIIRL RASISEY, who has been act
ing in this City for some months in the ca
pacity of Chaplain for the Seamen's Friend
Society, having nearly reached the expira•
Lion of his " contract;" " feels" it to be his
"duty to make a summary statement of the
services rendered." This he does in a com
munication published in the Dispatch, ad
dressed to the "citizens of Erie and all con
cerned." The debtor and creditor sides, ac

TIJE Ilsrit.—Read what Elder D. T. Tay
lor, of Rouse ' s Point, N. Y., says on the hair.
"The human hair, bleached by age, fright or
disease, can be fully restored to its natural
color without dyeing it. My case illustrates
this statement truthfully. My hair for sev
enteen years has been gradually growing
white and falling out; but, lo! in a short
time I have hack my old auburn locks. My
hair is as firm as when young ; this has been
accomplished by. the use of Hall's 'Vegetable
Sicilian Hair Renewer. It does its work
rapidly, is cooling, healing, and, in my case
effectually, without harm to brain; body, or
general health; this cannot be said of any
other preparation sold. Ido not know the
wonderful ingredients, but I do know ex
perimentally, and by observation in a' score
of cases, that it is a most marvelously trans
forming compound. Heads of sixty-five are
changed by it to the, color of youth." The

THE statement is going , the rounds of the
press that the Presbyterian custom of stand
ing while engaged in prayer had its rise in
the dislike which the early followers of that
sect felt towards "genuflection," or any, cus

whom they felt the strongest aversion.. As
the Catholic service requires Its adherents to
stand at frequent intervals, the explanation
seems a little "mixed."

Tux Democracy of Erie city and county
owe thanks to the brave men who, in every
district, stood at the polls on Tuesday, and
contested the field With our opponents in de
fence of the cause we all hold so dear. In
too many instances they were without ade
quate assistance, and the determination they
exhibited, in the midst of the most discourag
ing influences, entitles them to the kind re
membrance of our friends everywhere.
TIARTRANFT'S majority in the district is
2,747, Mr. Scofield's is 2,548, or 199 less. Of
this toss, only 27 is In Erie county. Herein
is a moral.—Gazeffe.
The "moral," we presume, rests In the ex
hibit it gives of the Gazette's influence. Be
fore his nomination and since, that paper's
opposition to Scofield has been open and un
disguised, and . yet with all its efforts, Ids vote
falls but 27 below that for the State ticket.
Has the Gazette -fiction really dwindled. to

this year the difference is only 183—a gain
