Republican State Ticket
COL ROBERT B. BEATH, of SohUylkill
The momberS of, the Republican Stand
ing committee, will meet in Ilheem'#
Carlisle,, op paturday, July 14. A full
aitenclanee is. requested, as tniiiness of
importance will be transacted.;:
At loathe troubled waters move. The
Democratic Count? Committee met hero
lea Saturday, andayscinded the resolu
tion .adepted . last year, /forbidding the
candidates for nomination to(ravel around
the county, soliciting votes. • Itthe time
this -resolution_ was adopted, 4 1 ., , ,,was
supposed to be just the . thing neeiledtg ,
_the virtuous Democracy from
all suspicion df office-seeking. It' was
intended:aeon advertisement, that this
immaculate,.organization Woffid—never
have on. flip ticket any man whom the
office did net seek. The politicians-of
other parties might, degrade themselves
by 'a personal scramble for Official spoils,
but no such disgrace should over attach
to the collection of fossils, known as
.the Democracy. The people should call
from their proper avocations those on
whom they had determined to thrust
their honors. The clear-headed, honest,
sagacious men, who alone could grace
the positions the Democracy had to
bestow, were to bd ' sought after, and
when found the choicest honors should
be showered upon them. So thought
the patriotic committee, when they
passed ths resolution which has so lately
— been abrogated. .
But, alas, how uncertain all things
' sublunary are. The a assumption -on
which this theory 'stood, was that, there
wore no place hunters, and that un
selfish patriots were juit as numerous
as Democratic voters. This was a slight
miscalculation. The developments of
the year have shown that office-seekers
are a plentiful crop. Thorgrow luxuti
antly in all soils and amid all surround.:
ings. The towns and villages abound:
with them. The rural districts bring
them forth as numerously as the frogs
that troukled Pharoah's people. They
aro rapacious and unmanageable. They
want to be Judges, and Senators, and
Treasurers, and Commissioners, and if
there aro any other good things under
the sun, they would take thorn and not
stand on the names by which they aro
designated. They were also determined
. that they would advertise their claims
in person, and if the resolution was not
repealed,. they would diSregard it, and
travel about all the same -as before it
was adopted. In order, therefore, that
there should ho no bickering over broken
resolutions; the committee came together
and it was rescinded:. Ilverybodyc is
therefore .at liberty to travel around just
as much as lie can between this and The
primary election. .
And - what a time them' will -be during
the next month. now smilingly will
the livery - stable keepers lodic, and how
the overworked horses will 'groan •at
the new demand that will be made for
their employment.. The farmers too, for
whom 'the next ; month is one-of busy
labor, how they will turn white with rage,
when they know that this hungry horde
of office-seekers is to be turned loose
upon them. How they will dread those in
terminahlo Conversations, in which the
candidates will sot forth their claims for
public support, and exhort them for the
dear country's good, to give them just
slow on the ticket. But they Will have
some little sport out of it after all, for
these politicians will inevitably talk farm
to them, and" will give them some new
ideas on the subject of Agriculture, that
will certainly keep. them laughing until
the next campaign.
in Order that there may be some con:
'ception of ihO magnitude, of the raid
that Will imMedietelY overrun the cotinty
since the action
..Of the committee, we
will give the numberof gentlemen who
have already .announced themselves.
There aro two for Presidedt Judge, five
for Associate, three for District Attorney,
six for State Senator, four for -Represen
tative, fLve.for Treasurer, eight for Com
missioner (wonderful) two for Director
of the , Poor, and two for Auditor.
INDEPENDENT then of Gen. McCand
less' fitness for the position, it is import
ant that he should be elected, that , a
• cheek may be placed on the doings of
the Radical ring. It is not well that
the °Maps of State Treasurer and Au
ditor GeneWil should be held by men of
the. same politics—most especially if
they belong to the select few who con
sider it their privilege to gamble with
the money belonging to the treasury."—
. Let us see how this is now. If the
Damocracy-olect McCandless, they will
certainly eleCt a majority of Assembly,
for thoy have an apportionment now of
their own manufacture. That Legisla
ture would .elect a Domocrati o c State
Treasiner-;L•would it be dangerous • then
to have the two officers of the same
party? Or is it dangerous hero in his
county„ in the Volunteer's opinion, 'to
-have the Comthissioners and Comity
Treasureii,of the Same polities? If (Cur.
•neighbor takes any stook: .in his own
logic, will holielp us 'to elect a Republi
can Treasurer or a Commissioner in'this
county? Wo aro net' proud in the nult,

hundreds of officers and thousandii r ef
men—at present out of service—will be
found ready and willing to return. Until

lam, sjr, very respectfully,
Your obedient sorvant,
Adjutant A., July 30, 1864.
Hero wo hAre-the whole story. COI.
M'Candless entered the .'service, .and
fought well until ho' had earned a pro
motion . accerdciclhim and the
'Secretary of war notified kitty officially
that he bad been made a Brigadier Gorr:
oral. The Colonel scornfully sent back
word, that he declined it for the reasok
that the war was not condiMt'ed for the
restoration of the Union.
The folly and presumption of the
author of such a letter is painfully ap
parent. The sworn ,officers of the Gov ,
ornhient, Lincoln, Seward, Chase and
Stanton, had after patient consideration,
of the ceuntry, should be exerted to
crush the rebellion. They were using
the war powers to. their utmost limits.
They had called to the rajahs of the
Union armies the slaves of the South, in
order that the *clueing force of that
regioti should be taken away, and that
our own armies might be recruited, with
less drain on our population than would .
otherwise have been necessary. The
wisdom of such a measure was apparent
to every ono who was in earnest in , his
efforts to restore the Union by crushing
the rebellion. But Mr. M.'Candless
made this a pretext to insultingly re
fuse a high mark of distinction tendered
him by the Government of his,Cbuntry.
Folly is a mild term for a performance of
this kind.
But a worse feature of the affair 're
mains. Except, perhaps, during the in.
vasion pi' Pennsylvania the previous
yea.r, there were no darker days of
the whole war than those of July, 1864. , .
After two months of terrible fighting in
Virginia it was discovered . that. the
rebels were strong enough to engage
Grant-hotly in the front, and, at,the
same time to send a, strong rco to the
Upper Potomac. Sherman
,nd not yet
reached Atlanta, and Thomases threat&
coed at Nashville. The -Government
had made, a call' for 600,000 . meM, and
were preparing to fill it by drafting. , If
there was over a time when-, tried men
were needed to aid the cause,- flCl'lat3 just,
then-. But another idea came to the.
mind of Col. 3.l.Taiidless. -The country
was filled with murmurs of, dissatisfac
tion. The long struggle had' disheart
ened friends, and emboldened foes: It
looked very much as if the nomination
of Gen. McClellan by the Deinocraby,
would ensure them a victory; and , Col.
M'Candless prepared , fon. the winning
side. His famous letter which ut have
Copied above, was given to the public.
The New York World, the 'Age, and the
Liz Crosse 'Democrat, publiShed it with
glaring capitals, and wrote strong loaders:
on this wonderful. evidence or patri
otic contempt for. Radical - merisOreS..
The Cblonel found - himself at , once fa.;
mous in the oyes of those who would
have given him no 'credit for years of
patriotic service in the field. -The
tempting. honors of the political arena
wore held out to him, , by the men who
were applauding his insult to- the guy
eminent. Ho desired notoriety, and got
it, but the cause of our imperilled gov
ernment was damaged more by his im- .
prudent and 'unnecessary letter, than 'it'
would have been by'the ravings of half
the Democratic politicians In the land! ,
We refer to this 'performance ' oat of
no malice to the Democratic candidate.
Wo freely concede that, in the. field he
served his country bravely. - But we do
not propose to overlook the presumption.
that setnp his borrowed ideas concern
ing the i condiret of the war, against - the
views of the statesmen who gnided the
nation through the dangers of rebellion,
I or the thirst for political notoriety, that
Caused him to throw contempt out the
administration in the darkest - hours -of
i its trial. If this is excused - On. the
ground of weakness, lie • should pet be
trusted for that 'vas* with . an • imPort
ant office.. If it Was- a deliberate at-'
tempt to throw obstacles in the way of
the suppresSion of the rebellion, Mil

loyal, and patriotic State. ' - ' •., :
"TILE Democratic' press throughout

Certainly they do, and that is perhaps

admirable .discipline that pervades the
ranks of those who. do the. writing for

'debt was 'repteal one .hundred and sev
enty millionslif dollars, while Congress

-But-more-than—this, -there-is-no-doubt ,
whatever that the expenses of thergovy
ernment at this time are actually less
per cupita than they have boon for many
years. In an address made by Bei:titer
Conkling during the last Campaign, we
find the following forcible statetnent of
this fact :
" The present Administration has ro
duced,the expenses of the Government
until they are less, per capita, than they'
have teen since Gen:Jackson's time.
For the year ending June 80, 1870, the
last fiscal year, the cost' of the Govern
ment was $1 .044. fer'eTvery person the -
nation, and that is less by 19 cents than
the average cost for 24 years preceding
the rebellion. This assertion may sur

Those charges pf waste and theft of
the national revenue are . „the only ones,
Made ; ,by the , Democrats , which are
worthy of serious consideration. ,The
•record of the Democratic party, as the
opponent of the government and the
friend of the bogus Confederacy during
the war, is so well known, that the pee-
Pie need no instruction to perceive the
absurdity of tho.present claim of that
party, to be, the devoted frieud of the
Union and , of. Republican principles
Indeed the "new departure" of, the
Democrats is. not only a proof that they
perceive the folly and wickedness of
their forrnor course, but-It is an expres-

It is rathordifficult, as yet, to state the

At the close of 1860 it amounted to $2;-,

by the legislative body, , on July 10,1870,
a loati of $160,000,000; voted to defray
the cost of the ' War against Germany . ;'
and, on October 25, 1870, the Provisional
Government of National Defense raised
a loan of $50,000,000. At the, close of
1870, therefore, Franco owed $3,202,095;-
870. The whole cost of the Guinan war t ,
including the indemnity and the direct
outlay, is estimated at $1,750,000,900, of

the cost of indemnity for the: German
war will amount, at six per cent interest,
to $110,00Q,000 per annum, which must
be provided for by new ' taxes: These
will be a tax on income, estimated' to
yield $58,000,000 a year ; an augmenta
tion of the stamp duties, wine and spirit
taxes, and of the price of tobacco (a
government moncipoly),- and a tax on
clothing. 'But the main reliance of
French financiers will be the imposing of
increased customs' duties. "In a word,
'France' will return to 11Fe principle of
Pioiection. Heir debt, ore all her'foreign
engagements ate mot, will be more than
twice in largo as that of England.—
