ate he rode his "iron gray" through the dis

friend of the old soldier; and beforea Van Bu

`'successor of the predecessor.' He brought
into the .field six candidates for the office of
Sheriff , of this county, <and promised to each
of them to play the game of "scratch me on

ter the election his half dozen faithful ones
saw that they had 'all been hoaxed; and that'
this •man of "good moral and political, char- -

disgrace our election ground as much. as ,
David R. Porter does. If the good people
of this commonwealth had been in Gore ourt

Porter uttered, they would at the next elec..,
tion overwhelm..hiin in "ineffable disgrace!" \_
