THE GRAIN MARKET has been ex
tretnelydull for a long time and prices
still remain nearly stationary at low
figures. -Wheat is now lower than for
several . years, but we presume has
about reached bottom. ,With the ex
ception of some portions of the Western_
country, where the grain has, been- in
jured by eicessive rainS and by wet
weather, the wheat crop everywhere
is flourishing, and there is little hope
of- the price becoming much higher.

Many years ago it was remarked by
one of our well-known local politicians,
when alluding to the great swarm of
Democratic place-hunters who at that
time sought office, that " the CUM her

number of teals necessary to suckle the
many hungry pigs who sought nourish
?tient at herbosom." if this complaint
was true of the Democrats of that day,
how mtiefi more so is it ,now, when
almost every third man in good stand
ing in that immaculate party is an as
piranE for office? The swartu of office
Ininfers then was comparatively small,
but now their name is legion ! In-the
columns of the Volunteer may be found
the " cards" of no less_ han thirty
fa.° candidates, who are anxious and. ;
willigg to serve the people and at the
same time put money into their own
pockets`; and how many more- sro in.

,It is somewhat singular,
too, hoW very persistent in the pursuit
of office many of these men are. Some

Republicans losing the Governor would
do much for the opposition in the way
of prestige, vfhile the manner in which
the Democrats would district the State,
it they should get control of it, would
probably give them a- majority of the
Members of Congress and' insure them
the election of the United States Sen

We throw out, these suggestions as
some of the reasons-whiCh will induc.
the opposition tct_make a' desperate
struggle for the control of the Stale.
- - Pennsylvania is now undoubtedly
-Republican.- The fair Republican ma
jor)lty is not less than' 20;000. There
are, therefore, but two causes for doubt
about the result: The Demoorats al
ways I count on fraud at elections for
thousands of Votes. The law-making
power has endeaVored to secure to the
people a fair_expression of-the popular
wishes fit-the Valls by the •passa'ge of
the li s egistry - Law. The Democrats
know that if this law be enforced, one
of their chances of suecessistaken froth
them. TheY are laberingv - thereforel
-with all their ingenuity to - make it it—
operativk and . already Mr. Sh ars wood,
their illegally elected Judge, has pro
nounced the law uneonstitutional. They
want the field clear fiir coffee-colored
naturalization papers, for colonizing
illegal voters, for voting " early and"
often, &c. If they fail in destroying
the Registry Law, one of their chief'
grounds for hope is g one.,
blape - is that' the itepffbilicans may be
apathetic, or that a large' number way
be, soured by dissatisfaction with Sp
poidtments, 'and therefore stay away
from the election. To increase any
diisatiduction , of this• kind that may
exist they labor assiduously. Like the
old serpent. crawling into the garden

Nat , ground of their hopes for suecess:
Vanishes frbm beneath their feet, and
leaves .then, nothing to stand upon but
their own dark and fearful record - of the
War,' And the blasting .power of that
record must wither forever the political
prospects of the men who clung to the
party, (and who cling to it still) which
in the darkest days of the nation's trials

a , D'emoeratic: complaint was made be;•
fore this artguktribunal, asking -that

straining them from putting tho Regis

constitutionality of the law, but an em

let day of July, and therefore mug
gested that , th matter be pokponed
until that. time, in order to procure ~..

by Judge Sharswood; - with - an indig

Ahe.r.espe to • decide it without
given, and it is exactly what every
partisan deinagogue expected.. It de
clares the.act null end void,.and argues,
the question after the fashion of a reg
ular Democratic stamp .spoech.
The decision is not worth the paper
on which it--is written. It is merely
the extra-judicial opinion of one Judge
oat of five. The case be argued
before a. full bench of the Supreme
Court in a few days, : and we have no
doubt that each provision ot• the act
will be carefully examined and treated
with that importance it properly de
served ; and then, whatever the •Court
May deeidr, will be the law of- the
State. In the, meantime, the officers
properly shared with the duty of re
gistering the voters, must disregard
the partisan decision of Justice Sitars-
Wood entirely, and proceed in the dis
charge of•theirrespective duties, other
wise they will incur, respectively, the
penalties provided by the act:

opene.d the eyes of thousands of Irish
men. They saw the real ,pint and in
tention of the democratic' party, and
that it, had brrroght the eon a try to the
verge of ruin. Wi4h a ready willing
ness to aid the cause of their adopted
land,_atid_to make good their oath. of
allegiance to the rinimi, very many of
them shouldered their mm-ketr. and
went forth cheerfully to battle for our
caus'e 'Phu number who thus enlisted
under the Union banner will never be
known, nor can there ever even en
iippifxitnationef how many died upon
the fluid, sealing their professions of
good citizeneh ip with their blood. The

One cheering indication ot' thi fact is
afforded by IL late call by the Irish

This morning we make the announce
ment °Hie sudden death of Mr.-Henry
J. Raymond, founder and conductor
of the - New York Times. The einem•
pectedness.ot tfil, event intensifies the.
regret it occasions. Mr Raymond *as
a man - of fine' , - ability, and possessed
powers of application which were un
usual. In a literary point of view, ho
was strong in the departm eats. Which
make a journal readable 14 . popular;
Politically he was suceeskfnl, yet _un
fortanate. Up to a certain standard
he possessed boldness and vim, and his
opinions obtained great weight. But
when the- arena—be Came vast, when
great practical and' aggressive' issues
w.•re to be presented and handled, he
either feared their contact or lacked
the comprehension necessary to secure_
their success. He had all the elements.,
of attaining popularity, and the cultiva
tion of these led him into those erratic,
channels which characterized his career
in Congress, and destroyed the, hopes
of .su'inany Who trusted-to the purity
of his Republicanism. His journal
was fonnded on the" belief that conser
vatism was a necessity. He was
. suspect that whilst
his object would bring' poptilatity, it
might not make
nus-,,that whilst it would succeed, it
might not bring fertune.. Around the
blank of its politics he therefore threw
a cordon of news attractions; and the
result was amply remunerative.
He'd he l?cen spared, Mr. Raymond
could never have been a tender in the
higher fields of politics. Hle was not
a trifling fllaw picker, however, nor by
-any means a temporizer. Hie eonvie
i;tions were earnest,-his discussions gen
.l..ous. and where he failed to inspire
he always commanded" respect. He
! filled the sphere for which-ice was des-
I tined with remarkable fidelity. his
life affords an impressive.- lesson- to
American }oath, in that it shows bow
perseverence and industry overcome
all obstaelei• to success, and are the

HAYMAKING.—Manyof our farmers
haveoready commenced to cut thelegrass,
and in a few daysit will ne got in. ,The
crop it very large, and, if successfully
Cured, hay slam id be abundant and cheap.
The wheat, also, looks welj. very
rank, and unless it shell be injured by the
insects or too badly beaten down by storms,
the yield will be an unusual one . The corn
is yet backward, but the hot weather of
July and. August is what makes the corn
'crop. There is every reason to - be satisfied
with our harvest prospects.

the Court might have &cited the quer.tion

Still we see nothing in the sets of Assem

this county, to prevent the appointment
of an auditor or auditors to make distribt,

there is in otter parts of the State by the

would not vitiate the decree predicted of

Mr the compensation allowed to the cudl=

be allowed compensation according to his
