he had I . been p4infully apprehensive
that he did not entirely concur with

he knew him to be altogether unexcep

abo t 've question ; and now, that his true
attitude upon the financial issues had
been emphatically made known, he re
joiced, as he did not doubt that every
true Democrat in t:he South and West
would "do, in yielding him a warm, sup

been brought forward in the Conven

The Democratic party which surren

Practically a man's character is half
_:one when he goes into a court to e's
;ablish, or vindicate it. This is the
:tats of Mr. Horatio Seymour's case to
dr.:, The party which for eight years
s sneered at the word " and
.scouted it as a term unfit to be used in
a republic, is now down on its marrow
bones begging the public to believe that
Horatio Seymour was "truly loil" dur- ,
ingthe trial by battle. Column upon
column has been written to prove his
"loyalty" to the Government during its
struggle with the Southern wing of the
party which nosy offer him as a candi
date for the Presidency. The great Cop
'perfastened ,dailies of New York and
Philadelphia are in an agony of argu
ment to prove Seymour's "loyalty."
They seize upon the testimony of Sec
retary Stanton (whom, by the way,
they never tire of denouncing as a. liar
and a scoundrel), and bring forward the
letter of thanks tendered by Mr. Lin
coln, whose assassination was instiga
ted, and is to this day defended, by the
party which offers Horatio Seymour for
the suffrages of the people.
Thank you, gentleman. We always
knew that " hiyalty" to the govern
ment in its dark hour of trial would
not always be unpopular with the par
ty of treason. When you want_ votes
you are as loyal as anybody—as John
Brown, for - instance. You are loyal
when it pays to be loyal ; and your can
didate out-Herods Herod in his devo
tion to the cause of good faith against
Southern treason. When the men who
now hurrah for Seyniour & Blair were
denouncing loyalty as a relic-of mon
archical times, opposing the raising Of
- troops and the replenishment of the
Treasury, rejoicing over Union dihas
tors, and sullehly retiring before the
news of Union victory, we thought,
and-said, that the day of tears would
one day become the day of wrath. It
was not a prophecy ; but only a plain
deduction from the great truth of all
time : Bad faith never pays.
Let us look at it a little: Mr. Sey
mour is being advocated on the score of
loyalty-, in the loyal States, that is. If
we may believe the leading Seymour
papers, Horatio Seymour was the pat
tern loyalist of the war. We don't care
to cite his propositions to Judge Rug
gles in February 1861,—t0 accept the
Montgomery Constitution in the place
of that which be is nosy put forward
as the defender—for what we desire to
know, is, just how far and where Mr.
Seymour is to be put forward as a loyal I
man. Will Mr. Vallandigharnio to
South Carolina and advocate Horatio
Seymour as a loyal man during the
war? Will he run on his loyalty
down South, think You ? Said - Vance
and Wise in Richmond, two days after
the nominations: " Secession is not

we shall get all the South fought for."

.Mr. Dane writes further that these
things are intended to proven t'the Un

stitution ; that the rebels are already
counting upon getting the farms of the
Union men when they are driven off.
The Danes go armed, and dechn e that
they will not be driven Off. He says:
"If a man like Pendleton gets elected,
woe to the Union men who stood by the
Government during the war. We are
sorry that we did not get away from

What right has Sheriff Van leer, of

to.put down a riot? And what right
has he to call upon the Governor for
troops if he, the Sheriff, cannot sup
press such riots? If, as 'Judge Wood

no right to call upon the people of Penn

rebellion, can Governor Geary lawfully
invade Luzerne county with his hire

Can you coerce a county, Oh, Sheriff
Vanleer ? Besides, you expect your
rioters to vote solid for Horatio Seymour,
the instigator of, and apologizer for
mobs. No humbugging, if you please.
If it is unconstitutional to coerce a State,
it is not less so to coerce a county or a'

The Democratic County Committee
met in this borough last week. and after
a slight skirmish nominated M. F. El
liott, Esq., as the choice of the party in
Tioga County for Congress. We were
not aware that the Standing Committee
of a party had such extraordinary pow
ers granted it, but presume that it is all
right. The selection is a good one: Mr.
Elliott is one of our most promising
young lawyers, and has ability enough
to entitle him to aspire to political hon
ors. The party cannot do better than
to nominate him. He will rim as well
as any man 'in the District, and the
Whisky Ring cannot furnish funds to
carry a candidate who win do better
service in the ;Md. It is hard on our,
friend Elliott, 'though.
It is not very' profitable bmincEs to y
chase up and refute the thoteAmd-and
one lies set agoing by the Democratic
leaders. lint as some of these lies re
late to matters upon which there can
be no doubt when understood, we do
not find it convenient to pass them
over in silence. There appears to be a
determination to befogithe people about
taxation.' Dut When any liutelligent
Democrat gravely informs the people
that the holders of U. S. securities do
not pay„any;taxes U pon .14ueli. securities;
be lies, wilfully, and malielotisly. As
well may lie say- that the holders of
Pennsylvania State bonds *do not pay
taxes on the same. The simple fact is—

—By which these faCts seem to be es

come tax at all ; and the , other fact—
tbat all income tax, therefore, must
come, out of men of means. •
