The Republicans of Bradford will.

meeting at the Court Hot'Se ; in Towan

Marriott'Brosius, candidate for 'Con
gressman7at-Lirge, of Lancaster, and
General E. S. Osborne, of Wilkesbarre,
will address the Meeting. ". We earnest
ly urge the Republicans of the county•
to turn out and hear. Subjects of
: interest to;every citizen will be ably
discussed. No one who desires to be
informed on the political issues inVolyed
in the present canvass should fail to be
present on next Tuesday : evening. •

this country from destruction, while every
man on the Republican ticket fought in the
rebellion.. -Elliott, on the Democratic ticket
for Congressman -at-Large, voted against
the soldier having a right toyote.
The world is still amazed tit,:the manner
in which thii country is paying off the gi
gantic debt accumulated during the Rebel
lion, and so greet has .been the reduetion
in the' past that now the interest account
has been so greatly reduced and_ the surplus
revenue so large, it is, not. too much to ea
poet that if everything goes right at the
end of the century or before it, perhaps,
will see the debt entirely wiped out. °
Messrs. BrOsius and Osborne; wh&
will address the meeting at the Court
House in Towanda, on Tuesday eve
ning next, are able and interresting
speakers. Turn Out and hear them.
The official vote :of Maine gives Rabic,
the Republican candidate for governor,
8,198 majority over Plaisted, Democratic
ateenbacker, and 7,133 over all opposition.
Pc t airteen out of the sixteen counties are
carried by the Republicans, thereby mak
ing the legislature stand : Senate,
publicans and 3 fusionists : Members of the
House, 108 republicans and 41 fusionists.
This is a remarkable result when it is re
membered that the Demcicrats by combin
ing with the,Greenbackers hoped to;carry
the Legislature and thus secure a United
States Senator. .
The Philadelphia Alms House thieves ap
pear to have taken the exact measure,of
Pattison, the' Democratic candidate for
Governor. They kept right on swindling
the city out: of thousands of dollars,, and
Pattison as 'Comptroller certified to their
accounts without a question. They could
not have stolen a dollar from the treasury
without Pattison's signature. Why did he
not withhold it and more carefully scrutin
ize the accounts? That was his sworn duty
c as Coimptroller. Ho may be 'honest, but if
he is he is not competent, A competent
Comptroller would have detected - -Phipps'
villainy long ago. Pattison let it pass until
the Committee of One Hundred unearthed
it. Phipps was smarten than Pattison.
He could steal, him blind, or rather Patti
son was blind to Phipps' stealing.—Honorer
Pattison, the Democratic candidate for
Goirernor, is honest, says the West Chester
Record ; why did he not stop Phipps' dis
.honestyt Pattison was put in the Comp
troller'zi office under the promise that he
would check just such swindlingof the city
as Phipps . committed. Pattison as comp
trollei had ample power. If he is holiest,
why (lid be not'keep his pledge to the.vot 7
ers who elected him comptroller, by discov
ering aid exposing just such frauds and
embezzlements as Phippil Pattison is a,
complete and utter failure as comptroller,
and yet he aspires to be governor. Patti
son's whole career is an exemplification of
aggressite. mediocracy. He _promise4l all
- things and accomplished nothing. Dire
faced thievery passed under his inspection
daily; without detection, as Phipps' accounts
show: Phipps had the capacity to steal,
but Pattison, whose business it was, did
not have the capacity to detect him. That

The Philadelphia Republicans held forty,
conventions! in that city on Wednesday to;
nominate that many candidates for.offices

from that city, which fact, will be hailed
with joy, by all good citizens all over the

He ventured to say that it would aid Gen

so the Republicans need no better recom

The Michigan Democrats have probably
been caught in
.13,! trap in fusing with the
Greenbackers of that State. Some of the
leaders in the latter party have sent out
confidential circulars urging Greenbackers
to scratch the names of the Democratic
candidates, and to , vote only for . members
of their own party. Much bad feeling has
been engendered by this discovery of a.
Greenback attempt to overreach the Dem
ocrats, and the harmony which marked the
allied State con ventionSis rapidly vanishing.
It is astonishing how fervently the Dem
ocrats are in favor of civil service reform
in States where they are out of office, with

Johnstown turns up with a story which
litti a' flavor of romance to give zest to its
curious facts. Twenty-six years ago Mr.
and Mrs. Weimer; of Allegheny City, died,
leaving 'as wards to the community a son
aged three months and a daughter aged as
many years; The children *ere separated,
the boy having beeU adopted by a family
named Stemmer, and subsequently removed
to Johnsto*n, and the girl by Mr. and Mrs.
,Emanuel Meyers. of Somerset county, and
each assumed the name of their adopted
patents. Of tender ago, the boy never
knew' of the existence of a sister, and the
girl soon forgot her brother. s• Both grew.
and prospered, oblivious of , the secret that
hung over them, until a few weeks ago the
youniinan, in, the discharge of his duty,
met a person who was acquainted With his
antecedents and disclosed the knowledge
that he had a sister.. ,Thus informed young
Stemmer, as he was known, began a search
for the girl, and h 4 persistent ; inquiries
I .were rewarded by her discovery as . the
honored wife of a respectable rtizen of

' The Republicans in rebellion against

feat of Cameron their 'objective point,
and to accomplish his overthrow they
are ready' to pull down the temple,
though themselves perishing in the
ruins. The history of past events
fails to justify such an. extreme. The
same power, remaining in the party
that defeated Mr. Cameron's friends in
the last Senatorial election can just as
easily defeat Mr. Ctimerga at the next.
Of course, destruction of the party
will be his certain overthrow, but is it

successor ? Do the Independents= pre
