The: Delegate .Syatem• ms. The
Crawfiird Cim - nty System.
In dayEi of yore,When the ,Democratic
party was poWei in the lamb,and;
when in Cumberland county the lam-'
seys, the McCoys, the Lambertone, the
Sbyders, the Angneys; the Woodbuina
and the Waggonas were amongst. its
honored and , influential leaders, ; its
principles'were openly avowed and its
practicer and usages well known and
clezirly defined.• In those days the
delegate, or; as it was sometimes called.
the committee system, was the recog:
nized mode in which nominations for
office were made, and the . Democracy
clung to it with tenaeious,persisieney:
end by all it was regarded as the great
palladium of their patty supremacy.
This system was adopted by its
founders for the reason that it gave to
the people of every section ortbe coun
ty_a guaranty__that_the claiim of each
township would be recognized, and
that occasionally a citizen of their own
neighboihood—one whom' they knew
and honored, would be placed upon
the ticket that might be formed. • The
delegates, coming from every township
in the county, large and small, it was
thought, would nominate a compromise
ticket, prevent the larger townships
from usurping all the honors and offi
ces, and do justice to the smaller and
less populous ones. This in fact proved
to be the case. Under the old system
the people in every section bad an
equal chance; all were in turn ;prefer
red, all were satisfied, and for more
than half a Century the party was
united and prosperous. •
' The Democratic party preserved its
supremacy for so long a time only by .
adhering rigidly to its.usages and en•
forcing with great impartiality its party
discipline. Under the old regime, the
Man, pretenclinglo be a'Democrat, who
ventured to oppose this system, or oven
1 to doubt its utility or justice, was look
ed upon as an enemy to the party; he
was denounced as a " disorganizer," a
"grumbletordan,' a " and
even as a federalist. in disguise. He
was anathematized as a political Judas,
his aspirations for office, if lie had any,
were thwarted and crushed, and he
was driven forth from the Democratic
fold, a winderer indeed ; his political
prospects ruined and his - reputation
blasted. These were the palmy days of
the Democracy, the days of it's purity,
and strength; and when a nomination
was certain to result in an election. In
those good old 'times the committee
system worked well ; it kept the p-rty
united and vigorous, and every man
who aspired to office was interest - A:in
keeping it as pure tie the ballot-box
itself. Under its workings the De
mocracy in this county was almost in
us tickets by very' conside:rabie - ma:
joritiee. • Slany Democrats look back
to tholie days with both pride and 're
gret—with, pride, because then their
party Was a power and elected - to office
men of intelligence, pure morals and
good- character, dad regret, that now
they have fallen upon evil times, and
designing men dictate the manner in
which nominations aro tobe made,
in reality by their intrigue and cun
ning make the ticket.
But times had changed. The old
leaders had passed : away, -and„ their
places were filled by designing and
unscrupulous demagogues: Under the
auspices of these -men, the party ma
chinery had become Totten to the core,
and the 'committee system was worso
than a farce. Delegates were publicly
bought and offices as publicly sold.
Men of wealth, but without either prin
ciple or hOnesty, could easily secure a
nomination, while the claims of men of
slender means or cofiscientious scruples
wore passed coldly over. So notorious
had this fact become, that honest Dem
ocrats had ceased hoping against hope,
a reform was deeined impossible, and
in an evil hour it wae - datermined -to
abolish the old parey landmarks and
try some other mode.
Having thrown tile old system over
board, the Democrats' . deter.mined to
adopt the Crawford county system of
nominating candidates, fondly hoping
thatit'would prove.% panacea for all
their political afflictions. This mode
had been adopted by some of the wes
tern counties, and was found not un- ,
objectionable. While in some sections
it seemed to give satisfaction, other
counties pronounced it' ldme and im
potent, full of difficulties, and as being
worse than the old system: It proved'
the - fruitful source of dieeention, corrup
tion and intrigue, and oven defeat, and
those who so gladly welcomed it were
just as glad to get rid of it. In our
county, as yet but one 'election has
been-held and one ticket formed - ac
cording. CO its provisions. Judging
from the result of that election and the
compgaion of the ticket nominated, we
think we may safely say that it will be
the last one held by the, Democracy of
Cumberland county under that system.
Never before in the history of the
party has there been such wide-spread
dise4isfaction with the ticket as nom
inated, nor such outspoken charges of
fraud:and trickery against the success
ful candidates. At least three of the
priimiiient candidates owe their places
.upoji the ticket to the judicious use
of the- contents of 'a 'two•gallon demi-
john of Whisky ; for through the po
tency of, this beverage some fifty raw
recruits from Carlisle Barracks,, who

number of our fellow-citizens of Alas

There is not a single act of his life,

refer to distinguish him from the other

the amount of money he is pledged to

not the virtues of their candidate.

The man who has no claims upon the
people but such .as arise from his
wealth, will find; after the election,
that the people are not yet corrupted
enough to be bought and driven to the
polls as sheep to the shambles. The
solid claims upon public gratitude and

RECEIPTS AND EXPENDITUREH OF

statement of "the receipts and expendi
tures of the Government for the quar
ter ending June 30, shows that the
income is enormous and far exceeding
the current demands open the Trea-
Sury. Although this•lluarter of the
year is not considered the most prolific
to the Treasury, the receipts were over
a hundred and nine millions from the
regular sources of revenue. Thin is, at,
the rate of over four hundred and thir
ty-rix million a year. It is a remark r

wealth of the country, the patient man-'

IT IS A FACT to be gratefully re
membered by . tFc.pavers, that under
the administration, of Gov. Geary, not
only has the State debt been feduced
nearly FIVE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS,
but the tax on real estate has been.en
tirely abolished. With Grant in the
Presidential chair, and Geary re-elect
ed Governor, both the National and
State debt will no doubt continuo to
diminish, as it has done, and'the time
will soon arrive when a still further
reduction-of .taxatien will be realized.
All that.is wanted to effect this most,
desirable' end, in addition to the re-elec
tion of Geary . , is to send honest men to

RUST HOME.—We had . the plea
sure on Saturday last of attending at the
Fair Grounds the annual festival of our
Agricultural Society.. The meeting was
one d the lergett and: livelleit it has - been
our, good fcirthne to witness on a:sinttlar
occasion for' many yeais. The &niter) as
is the annual custom, was served up by that
most excellent of all caterers, Majdr JACOB
BRETZ. The members and 'guests, having
satisfied themselves with -the good tiiings•
of.the table, the President of the Society,
Mr. JOHN STUART, called them to "bider
in an adjoining building,. and introduced
Judge WATTS, eui the annual orator., The
Judge made a rhotion'that a committee of
three, consisting of Messrs. Jacob Rhoads,
Skiles Woodburn, and Wm.Galbiaith, be
appointed to represent .thispunty at the
meeting of the State Agricultural Society,
to be held this fall. The Judge's own
name being added, on motion his resolu
tion was put to a voto and carried. He
then proceeded to make extended remarks
on the subject of manure. His idea is that
manure shmild not, as has been the custom
in this country, be put upon the ottslub-
Ides, but upon the Sod before turning it
down for the corn crop ; 'that wheat was
too delicate a,plant to stand the manure at
its first appli6tion to the soil ; that'corn,
the hog of plahts," as it is sometimes
called, is the proper grain to soften and
tone it down. Ho further hold that mil
dew was produced upon the wheat by the
fact that rnanero has been put upon the
grotind immediately preceding its being
sowed; the mildew being as much a plant
as wheat itself, and. being 'produced by
feeding the wheat with a manure that it is
too weak to endare,
He then discussed at 16ngth the subject
of cattle running, at large, and took very
positive grounds in favor of a Stringent
road-laW, alleging that the farmer who
would oppose such a law did not underr
stand his own interest,
The President' next introduced Judge
GRAIIAM,'who began his remarks by stet
ing that he had been raised upon a farm
and always desired to reside in the coun
try. The subject of seeds next received
his attention. The farmer, ho said, can-
not be too particular in the selectfon of his
seeds. Like phiduces and a smitll
grain Will produce u small grain. On the
subject of blooded cattle, he stated that ho
never indulged in them, but that, he had
turned his attention with .very'great ,sue
uess to the rearing of Cotswold Sh'cep.
Bore a very amusing . dialogue ensued be
tween tie speaker, Judge STUART, and Mr:
N. B. Moon; be jocularly remarking that
he had sold to Judge STUART u half-breed
Rum at an enormous figure, Judge Stuart
replying that it was Nap Moore's fault, to
Which Mr. Moor'e demurred. Judge Gm-

Mr. HATS, the Seeretnry of the Society,
•stated that the premiums would not be so
high this year as last, and that the system
of Family tickets. would be changed, this
system in past years having been greatly
abused ; that this year six tickets would he

buildings, and to improve the grounds

BOROUGH IMPROVEMENTS.--' , IIM
handsome brick building on" Market'
Square, intended,fOr the accommodation
of the Volunteer printing office, is rapidly
app yaching completion. The building
is one of, the finest in the borough
and shows to great advantage. The Vol
unteer office will probably be removed to
its now location about the middle of Octo
bor. The editors of that paper will doubt
less spread themselves, and bo as proud as
a young girl,with a now bib and tucker.
We hope, however, that they will remain
upon speaking terms with us.
Gen. TODD'S splendid brick building on
Hanover street is nearly completed, at
least outwardly. It is one of the
most _substantial in the borough, and is
really a line specimen of architecture. A
few more such buildings would set our old
town off to much advantage.
The "Good Will Engine Company" 'aro
having their now brick building on South
Hanover street rapidly pushed towards
completion. The workmen are making
good progress and the ",Goodies" will soon
have ono of the beat and handsomest edi
fices in tho.Stato. The house will be three
stories high, 30 feet in front and 76 feet
deep. Besides accommodating the Good
Will Company, there will be ample room
in the building for offices, shops,' &c.,
which will be rented out. Business stands
in that locality will be both convenient
and valuable. In view - 4010 valuable
eeryiees of the Good Will Fire Company,'
together with their enterprise in, erecting
so fine a building. 'we trust our citizens
will see the propriety of. contributing to.
their funds at the prepist-tizaa.--They have
nobly earned it, they richly deserve it,
-and now 'is the time to extend to them a
helping hand, to enable them •to meet
the heavy expenses they will incur. ..
The denomination of f...airistians calling
themselves "The Church of God," have
erected on West Louther
and beautiful temple, of brick, for their
accommodation. This building has al-,
ready boon dedicated, will soon be finished
outside and in, and such of our citizens as

means to enable this worthy anrh humble
sect of Christians to defray their church's
indebtedness, There has also been ereebr_

The "Dickinson Mission Chapel" corner
of North and East streets, is a neat and
convenient brick building. It has been
