FOR VICE PRESIDENT,

Gen, JNO. F. HARTRANFT,
of 'Montgomery County.
Gen YActPB M. 'CAMPBELL,
..Of Cambria County.-
THE New York Sum calls iiitentioli to
the fact that Mr. Chase, when elected to
his ft)stlerni in the Senate, and afterward
as Governorof lilt State, was chosen'. in
‘,,each case by a coalition, and owes ever]
"''important step of his political preferment
616,,t1e votes of the original and
P'te Democrats, so that there is nothing
antecedents to prevent their slip
porting him now.
A Washington .correspondent of the
New York Tribune reports one, of the
-rumors of the capital, to the efiect_that
President Johnson has told Chief Justice
Chase that if he is nominated by the"
Democrats he will support him, and tiukt,
the latter -said lie would acimpt poll a
nomination the Democratic platform
was in accordanCe with the principles he.
held. It is also said the — President told,.
the Chief Ji.ttice that Hancock was his
second choice -and Hendricks his third.
Pendleton he will not support.
• SoLptEits, says the State Guard ; will
of course observe that Republican Con
' ventions are again waking good lain:pro
fessions of the Republican party for the
—benefit of surviving soldiers who defend.:
ed the Union during the late war, In
every county in the Stiller - where . a Re
publican majority is certain, where nom
inating conventions -.have been held, a•
fair share of offices are allotted to sol
diers. Such is the truthful and practical
carrying out of Republican regard for our
THE Ohio Democrats are not 'undo
mous for Pendleton. A meeting of the.
..lea - ding - plititians - of - the State was held
at-Cineinnati on Wednesday of last week':
of which the Chroaide says :
_of the meeting was in
• favor of Mr. Pendletm as the Democratic
standard-bearer, but not unanimously so.
There was a derided feeling expressed for
Mr. Chase by some of the gentlemen
from'other parts of the State. It Was also
stated, by one of the knowing ones, that
neither Mr. Pendleton . or Mr. Chase
would be the nominee of the Convention,
but that a new and popular man, not now
in the minds of the people, would proba
bly be prtsented to the Convt ration at the
proper titre, and would sweep the .field.
The name of this great unknown is not
THE Copperheads profess-to .sneer at
Gen. Grant, because ho has been hi the
tanning business. They can respect no
one who is not an aristocrat. Plain peck.
ple,admire men who have been connected
with the, producing interests. , Then'the
Copperheads do not like the suggestion
of Gen. Grant's old business. They an
ticipate that he will perform a job of tan
ning in November on,a larger scale than
ever before attempted. lie will- tan the
hides of the self-styled Conservatives"
and "Democrats" in,a manner to con :
vines them that be is.n perfoct wtirkman.-
No wonder they tremble at the sight of
a tanner leading the popular hosts.

the name of the General of the armies,

If we Would this year preVeXit
frauds of which it speaks,-it.wiVbe Oe•
oossary for us to be wide awake, and fulli
alive to The _Villainous devices , ofaur

Republican edmiild remember that ovary
fraudulent vote, he, by his vigilance keeps
out, will be the same as adding one more
vote to the 'cause of right and justice.
Upon this subject, the Tribuae:speaks
as follows.: .
The 'fluid usually found thOst . pgtent
in .promothig 'Democratic_ " victori as" in
Pennsylvania is known as "'Fine 'Old.
Yourimd," or " Old Rye," or " Pure
Wheat ;"" but recent developments' have
,Eibown that a dec9ction of " Old GoVereif
meet Java," or " has also its
uses in tin election contest, riot as a bey :
-erne; Moat certainly,: for as such the
electios in that market would regard it as
a contemptibly weak and juvenile fluid,
übworthy of double-voting heroes -and
much sweariii braves; but we now learn
that as a tinter and colorist of bran-new .
naturalization papers of rather loose' and
apocryphal dates, ‘kauphy,' as the. Scotch
Alderman spelled it, is of unapproachable
merit. Our readers•have heard of sharp
dealers who smoke modern -pictures into
a sudden antiquity. • The, disclosures in
the election case of Robmion vs, •Situgart,
in which the seat for the XXlst Senate
Digtrict was contested, possess a scientific
interest. 'ln the first plaee i n WWI regi
moot of laborers at work. on the Tyrone
and Clearfield Railroad were brought•into
Centre county; and O'Meara, thitir boss.
Swore that he received orders •to makc
this transfer because Centro county was in
"a Republican distriet.'.' Most of these
wandering voters were aliens—so it was
`necessary, if they were to-vote at the then
approaching election, secretly and swiftly
to make them Anierican citizens; and
the seal of the Prothonotary's' office hav:
_ing been stolen, naturalization papers were
manufactured by the bale, and furnished
to all Comers at a merely yminallrate.
Blanks, also, Were stole'n from the office
and an atten!ft - was made to steal the .
titau . ralization recoiii_for 1866. It hap
pened, however, that the record for, 1865
was taken by mistake, and upon that of
the subsequent yedr not one name of all
the hundreds of naturalized "voters" who
voted upon - the - Inzerne papers- could
found. Hero were three crimes—forgery
of the papers, robbery of the seal, and all
the perjury necessary in pushing through
the whole bad business !
These criminal Operations were promot
ed and probably sugested by the Demo
cratic State Central Committee. We
should like to know the name of the par
ticular member : 0 this most fastidious
body who discovered hblre to make new
naturalization papers look like old ones
by dipping them in a coffee-pot; and,
furthermore, lye should like to know .in
tvhat other Senatorial Districts it was
found necessary to - dye the documents.
What . was done in Blair, Centre, Juniata,
Min, Huntingdon; and Perry counties
was-probably done elsewhere. The ras
cality was so plain that Shugart found at
Jost that coffee couldn't save him, and the
man who temporarilly triumphed by vir-
ue:of unlimited bales of fraudulebt doe
uments wits coMpolled to give place to
Robinson, his opponent.
Another and a most important e action
is at hand ; and the people of this ap
try, knowing the part which Pennsylya
nia most take in it, would 'like to have
some assurance that, the Domooiatio cof-
fce•pots wilr mit again lie

the complete possession of his senses, who
believes that the vote Pennsylvania
Was licinestligiven' in 1856 for Mr. Bu-

offered .by Mr. A.
Ohs, Charon, son of Erebus ! Thou who
do - st conduct the souls of 'the dead in a boat
over the rivers Styx,and Acheron, wo be;
seech thee-to hear us. 'Hear us in - -this most
auspicious hour, when th; , materna! once:-
tor, Nox, is overshadowing us with her 11111
je,,tie wings. No hand is so steady, no rud
der so sure to guide-tIM spirits pf the 'demi rted
safoly, across tho rivor as. thine ow,ri„ ;Very.
- many spirits host thou conducted '=cross, and
Many more still shall be guided over the
,Ninefold stream by thy uncrrimrland. Wo
do now inVeke thee in behalf of Miss Annie
Lytical, who is dust and a shade; the equa
tion of her' life is solved, and we do assure
- Woe that we aro - in no wise
bolical panegyrics' upon her sacred memory,
when, wo say that she lived, in perfect con
formation to the, rule's and formula laid down
by her own particular Church which she
represented. The cycles of her Life being
void of all eccentricity ; wo,ro,perfect and beau=
tiful in their formation ; the rays reflected
from her actions, formed a focus of truth so
obvious that all were willing to aenept it
without investigation; her virtues asympto
tically were approaching a-standard of per
fection which the followers of her Church in
vain hoped to attain to—always did she refer
her life to the co-ordinates of xumplo,. and
yadom. . But AM Hermes has driven
her to-the gloomy-throng with his dread
- hil rod, and htistens her on to the Stygian'
w=ives, and we do implore thee that she may .
.not be one of that dense throng that on the
hither side of the Styx aro flittering to and
fri); aye, long to and, fro, but- that thou
wouldst. convoy her safely across the dark
waves, so that sho may arrive to the fields
of truth, whore expectant Minos, with Ills
assistants, Rhadamanthus mind A011(2116, await
her, and have a speedy trial, for she comes
not alone, made unctious by funeralnard,
but provided with,an obolus as a remuner ;
atiqn for . her passage, and we aro now about
to perform the sacred rite of !casting over
handsful 6f dusti.
