The Vermont September election of
1884 resulted in a Republican majority
of 18,977. This year 'Lis `27,000; a nice
gaitiof 8,023. The gain for Lincoln in
1864 was 9,000. We gness Grant will
have 35,000 majority in little Vermont.
The Democracy lose their only Senator
and 14 Members of Assembly, So the
We are waiting patiently tiy hear
from Mr. L. A. Mackey, supposed to
be the Democratic candidate for Con
gress in this District. Mr. Armstrong
haVing stated in a' meeting at William
sport, that he Was in favor of a canvass
conducted between the candidates, The
Orvis addressed a 'letter to him 'on the
subject. Mr. Armstrong replied, saying
that he was ready to take the field with
Mr. Mackey at any time, and oil such
terms as should be agreeable to both
parties. Mr. OrVis rejoins that.there is
a In ibuitderstrintgng about the terms,«b
in itio that he supposed there was, to
be a plurality of speakers." Mr. Or
vie wantt a chance to blab, probably ;
rattle-pated fellows beside want tolnive
the honor, and eclat of traveling with a
man of ability. Mr. Orvis back
down more squarely ? :

Thus, Job. ( If the Individual who
wrote and published the blue covered
pamphlet ' entitled ." Address of the
Tioga . Democratie:Club," has an enemy
in the wide world, be will be 'rejoiced
when he sees this amusing atte pt at
bookmaking. We shall admit tli t Itis
well printed; in fact it is gotten up in
the latest. approved primer style, in
large type; evidently, intended for peo
ple just learning to read. We regret
that the author shows such a spite to
ward Mr. Andrew Johnson's English';
and we cannot understand why, he
should ignore geoid Brown and Noah
Webster. • But most of all do we marvel
that he should have sent this literary
gem afloat '_`.with the compliments of
: A: - . : 10. Bush."- As we do not expect to
'borrow money of Mr. Bush we cannot
speak of him as " our friend ;" but we
sympathize deeply With him now that
be is made to endorse such a mass
of loose statement, silly falsehood,
and nonsensical farrago. Of course,
Mr. Bush is unaware of the liberties
taken with his name by this ignorant
political adventurer, whose pamphlet,
being a resume of all the stale lying of
the fleet six years, we propose to notice,
Page 1. The writer proposes to Com
pare the general' condition of the coun
try during the 75 years of Democratic
rule, with the fifteen years rule of the
_Radical party now in power.
If by the Radical he, means the Repub
lican party, we beg to inform him that
the reigns ofFranklin Pierce and James
Buchanan-ar fully included within the
last fifteen years, and cover eight of
them fully. So we do - not quite com
prehend this pamphleteer. However,
let us - compare the expenses of the
Government during the administrations
of Pierce and Buchanan, with the cost
:undei Abraham Lincoln :

These Sgures represent gold—a fact

bear in mind.
Now for the ordinary expenditures
of the Government during the admin

the history of the nation :

we have allowed for theViiciy:iiit'd'i;kY.
on a peace footing. Of -,course we might
stop right here, and leave this pam
phleteer stranded onia huge blunder
before he, gets out of port. But his ig
norance/. and innoceniee run so un
commonly well togethd ( r that Ni : e must
let alittle.lighl in upon him. Ile corn
.plaits of high prices,. of the debt, of
taxation. Let us see :
'ln - 1860 the Democratic party had
flee in its hands. It had the Pre - Sidenti
it had the Congress; it hadlhe Supreme
Court. every .Cabinet
the purse and, sword. Yet in 'Decem-:
her 1860, two States rebelled against the
Union ana - reptidiated the Cotiltitntion.
In January the flag was fired : upon,
Charleston harbor. In February Jeffer
son Davis, was ipaugurated President of
:the Confederacy, and-seven States had
practically withdrawn from the Union.
The mints, Custom ,houses,
the forts, all the .N t Lvy Yards,. every
arsenal, in the South', had been seized,
iii effect, and 'chiefly :in fact; and all
this, while the Democratic,, party held
undisputed.sway in the Republic. In
this state of confusion Mr. Lincoln took
the helm— If it.eost $6,000,090.000' ,t 0
recover the forts, arsenals, Mints; cus
tom hotises, navy yards, and undisput
ed rule over the repUblie, the Democrat
ic inirty is responsible for that. Does
this ignorer of Ittelts and history dare
deny it before an intelligent audience?
lie dare not. It is a fact of history.
'We need_not say that no further reply
is called for to that portion of the pam
phlet; for the party which brought on
and sympathized with the. rebellion
rtitinot come into court. and complain
the 'cost Of reducing its rebel masses
to subjection. ,
We can believe this pamphleteer
when he says that many financiers be
lieve gold to be the cheapest property
iu .Ainerica at 150.
.Possibly he knows
by experience how profitable it is to
speculate in gold while, the nation is
fighi Mg, for its life. But he cannot
transport the loose ethics of Wall-st.,
Tiogaseil and propagate them with
success. Not less than 35 per cent. of
the premium on gold this day comes'
from the combinations of stock gam
blers, big and little. When this writer
declares that the National Banking
system treated a paper circulation of
$400,000,000 we shall ,correct him. The
last report of the Comptroller of the
currency puts the actual circulation of
all the National Banks at $299,103,996.
To secure this circulation $340,675,000
are deposited in Washington. The 'in
terest on these bonds is'stated to he $lB,-
000,000, not over $'20,000,000, as onr au
thor states. But the indecency of (he
thing is, that he forgets to state that
these very ranks pay to the Govern
went and to the States over $ 10 ,00 0 , 0 00,
hi takes; and he further forgets to stid'e
what he may find on page 9, Finance
Report of 1867,—that the Banks have
deposited with the Treasury .Depart
ment\ the sum of $490, 0.00,..0004p Ainncip
cro eseliainis - atey' recive $19,000,090
interest; and of thlS' sum they refund
in takes 'sl6,ooo,ooo—leaving $3,500,000
which the Government pays the banks for
a loan of $490,000,000, or, as the Secre
tary expreises less them three
fourths of one per cent." interest.' Be
sides this, the banks actually hold $150,-
000,000 in greenbacks in reserve upon
which they receive no interest, of
course, which is a loss of $9,000,000 per
' annum. NoW, sir; add to this $9,000,000
$16,000,000 taxes paid by the banks and
you have $25,000,000. From this de
duct $19,500,000 paid to the banks as in
terest, and you have the sum of $5,500,-
000, bonus which the , banks actually
pay the Governinent for the privilege
of banking. Let us see if this
phleteer can blush. He assails the
banks which loan the Governmen t $490,-
000,000 at less than three-fourths of a
cent interest; which pay a bonus to
the Government of 51 millions besides,
and forgets that James Buchanan in
1861 could not borrow $10,000,000 on the
credit of the nation, at less than a sluice
of 12 per cent. Do you want the fig
ures? Look in the finance Report of
Our author, with a reeklesS disregard
for facts which stands him in lieu of in
formation at every turn, declares that
the present banking system is less sate
than the old State bank system, lie
ought to -know better; he ought to
know that under the old system circula-
tiOII"WfIS ever in inverse ratio of solven
cy. He does know that no
ever yet lost a dollar by the collapse; of a
National bank. If the credit of the
nation is unsafe, then the banking sys
tem is unsafe, and not otherwi e.
On page 4 he insinuates that the
Government was forced to purchase the
credit of a New York Merchant in 1801
to import munitions of war. Certainly.
But Mr. Buchanan had to borrow 111011-
ey just before that at 12 and 1.5 per cent.
discount, and at home! Knation which
had been ruled for half ' a century by
this Democratic party could not borrow
na9ncy at home eNcept at a fearful
s4ve; is it probable that foreign capi
talists would do better by usy Why,
mini, this is trumpeting your own
But we must hasten over much of this
farrago, for we recognize much of it in
the papers of that party, and brand the
lies from week to week. On page 5
find him stating that the bondholder
is exempt from .taxation. Dare • this
pamphleteer go beforn an intelligent
audience and undertake to prove it?
We gu i lss not; for though the forte of
the Democracy lies in loose statement,
we have never seen one of the bad breed
who was fond of substantiating anY
thing by the record or by logic. The
bondholder. if he has an income over
$lOOO per. year, pays a tax of Live per
cent, upon the surplus; unless like W I
man we hear of, he refusal to
taxable income, though woelh not 1 , 3,98
than $lOO,OOO. If thin pamphleteer
wants the name of the man he is can
hive It. Like thin pamphleteer lie is

The Democracy of this county held
their Convention in the COurt louse,

A. man who -should pay his: debts in
scrip haring no , interest, would very
soon 110 hlinself without, credit, and
his 'notes of hand :At a heavy discount.
The Government of the United States
understood this when i 111802 it com
menced issuing interest bearing bonds,
payable ut long dates. The •pxpansion
of the currency throtigh issite of
greenbacks had caused ,the 4ectibacks
to depreciate to such an exteint that it,
was plain enough twsagaciotoi men-that
unless the :issue of greenbacks eptild'be'
restricted they would soon be worth but
a few cents on a dollar. The 5.2.0 s were
issued to fund, or take-Tap the surplus
curl eney. In other words, the Gov
ernment, to save, its credit., and keep
greenbacks somewhere near at par, is
sued' notes hearing interest and paya
ble at long date, and exchanged them
for greenbacks, or gold. Thus was the
Government enabled to use, over and
over again, the greenbacks, saving it
self from the ruin which a mass - of about
$1,000,000,000, of currency would have
wrought. The rebels tried to fund their
floating debt in like manner, and failed ;
and so it fell out that in 1804 a $5 green
back would purchase $5O in Confeder
ate currency, while in 1805 rebel notes
went at the rate of $3OOO for $1 in gold.
The 'argument is plain enough, and it
-is this : If the bonds were issued to
keep down the volume of the currency,
how can you redeem the ;Wilds in cur
volley withoni, producing. just that con
dition of eXpension and .r dePreeiatton
which the bonds were issued to prevent?
Is our reply satisfactory?,;
The people are not slow to mark the
signifiCant fact that, whereas , the atlyo
odes of Grant kcolfax are' ever ; ready
to refer to the official reports on : Fi
nance in arguing the financial questions
of the day, the teymour &Blair orators

TILE' REPRESENTATIVE Qerk,STloN.—NetWitit
standing the reports that had come to us from' • Tioga,
and the action of their Convention •in , presenting two
Candidates for the Legislature, we,bad anti entertain
ed the opinion that on sober, second thought, the peo
ple of that County would forbear to perpetrate the in
justice that was contemplated. The action of the Con
ference on Thursday last, dispelled that illusion. The
manifestations on that day proved that there was a Bot
tled Nimes() to deprive us of onr , Renresentative.• •
The only excuse they could offer for this course was
that they had conceded to us the Senator. True, but
they seem to forget that Tioga has already had the hon
or of a Senatorial Representative for one- term during
the existence' of the present district, and that four
counties instead of two, are interested in the Senatorial
}or all Representative anti Judicial purposes this
county Is districted .with Mona. Sim has a much lay.
ger population than Potter, wo admit, but at the same
time we would call her attention to the fact that in
every relation' with which we aro connected with her,
she has had inoro than the lion's share of the honors.—
Per two forme she has had the member of Congress ;
for one term t ir o State Senator ; she has had both the
Law Judges in this Judicial District; and of the ap
pointees of the general Government, she has the Col
lector of Internal Revenue, and the Register in Bank
ruptcy. Of this we make no complaint Thu mon of
this county aro not calico-hunters: But to oar Repre
sentative, we claim that wo are entitled of right. We
preeented a man of ability and integrity,—,one against
whom they could raise no objection. And now we tell
them plainly that the people of this county look upon
their course as an outrage and an insult ; and as such
it will be remembered.
The people of this county have plackd in nomination
J. S. MANN, of Potter, and B. B. STR/iNO, of Tioga.—
Though wo do not expect to elect Mr. MANN, yet we
hopo that not ono Republican vote to this county will
be cast for his opponent, J. D. Dittrs, of Tioga. Let
there boa unanimous adhesion to our city)) candidate.—
Where our rights are concerned we will never yield.—
'We give Mr. Mann the benefit of the
foregoing singular statement ; at the
same time we must disabuse his mind
of an error into which heir fallen.—
There is no quarrel between Tioga and
Potter. • Mr. Mann simply rebels
against the fundamental principle of
free Governmentmajority rule. It
was tried in 18fi1 on a large scale, and
the result is still fresh •in the memory
of men. As it takes two to quarrel
there can be no quarrel in this case.
The debt statement for Sept. 1, shows
an increase of $12,070,832 over that of
August But within the mouth - we.
haN4,paid the Government of Russia
fOr Alaska; in gold $7,200,000. We have
also issued bonds to the Pacific Rail
real Company amountin r to $3,10 , 1,000
—in all $10,304;00. • This must be de
ducted" from the $12,079,832 increase
above, and thus leaveS the real increase
,of the debt $1,775,832, The purchase
of Alaska was a. Democratic notion.—
The Republican press opposed it. But
Mr. Johnson made this bargain and
left CongresS to violate the contract 'if
it dared. But for this piece a 41inso-
Man extravagance the debt would have
shown a reduction of more than $4,000,-
000 during the last month.- ''• - -

sport. The ball opened at Blossburg, Monday,
7th inst., and was ono of the most brilliant open
logs of a campaign ever, witnessed in Tioga
°Minty. The day was fair, thoitgh`not elondless;
Cp to eleven o'clock there was little stir in the,
streets of Blonsbarg, but from ; that bout op t 0,2
'o'clock 131osshurg' 't Pa;N'anothei sight, 4 'Whiah l
bur °Magna will not soon cease to remember with
pride and pleasure : gome idea of the turn•out
may be obtained when we state that the delega
tion from Delmar. Welleboro, and Charleston
numbered one-Amolrfa and fortihseven
by the Wollsboro Cornet Band, out for Its first
expedition; atidlairlY bloesoining with banners
and flags along the whole lino of near ii
Behind came thi3 Bovkiiin delegation with its
f.ax Horn Band, and numerous volunteer teams.
The Welsh neighborhood Was out in 'force, hav
ing one sii-horsci team loaded 'down, and several
lesser teams. The Tiogd;andMorris Run Brass
Bands, were on the ground, and several martial
Bands also. Liberty was out In full force and
made a fine display. Morris Run, Arnot, and
Pall Brook. with Richmond, sent each a floe del
egation, and the 'towel!, estimate we i haim heard
of the crowd is 3,500. It MU) probably more
than that. 'Oen. Cox, of Liberty, was Marshal,
and maneuvered his 4 ' irregulars" with great
skill. The display of banners was large and ve
iled. Prominent among them we note the foll.w
Tio , go. County good. for 3 ; 500 majority. for
"Mansfield, four to one, for Grant and Colfax."
" Our Choice—For. Preeident, Ulysses S.
Grant; for Vice President, Schuyler Colfax."
" Wo saved the Union in the hold,—let us pre.
servo it at the ballot box."
"Lot us bovo Peace."
"Gen. Grant, in war or peace, true' to his
" HAIL VERMONT !"
" Hail Vormcini !—Sho ati lima down the Allies
0,000 strong !"
) "Grant and Colfax—The Union must and
hhail be preserved."
"16 poliei to wage against the' People."
" Charleston U. L. A., No. 6,66s—Liber
" G rapt and Colfax—Lat,us have Peace."
" Grant and Colfax-L-Rally for the Union "
A large oval banner, in front of the hotel at
which lion. W. H. ARMSTRONG; of Lycoming Co.,
made his headquarters, was surrounded with
evergreens and flowers, and bore the following :
"To W. H. Armstrong of Lycoming. Tioga
County good for 4,000 majority."
We aro indebted to the excellent report of the
Elmira Advertieer' for those particulars.
Henry Rolland, esq., was President, of the
Day. The addressee were in the grove. Dr.
Deane spoke about 40 minutes amid tumultuous
outbursts of applause, and was followed by Mr.
Armstrong, who hold the vast audience enchain
ed for nearly two hours. Ills speech' is reported
as having been signal in ability and force, and a
crushing indictment of the party vatieh rallies
for Seymour & Blair. Large and enthusiastic
as this Blossburg meeting was it was entirely im
promptu, and shows that the Republicans at
Tioga are in terrible earnest.
T - he same day evening Hon. Wm. H. Arm.
strong addressed a monster meeting at Mansfield.
The meeting was hold in the Gymnasium, a room
large enough to accommodate upward of a thou
sand people. /Cams crammed full, and the en
thusiasm was grand.
The same day evening Dr. Doane addressed
the largest meeting ever held in the Court House
in this , villoge. Judge White presided, and at
about 8 o'clock introduced the speaker. Wo
shall not attempt to report the .speech. It was
an aggregation of home thrusts, each as sharp as
a. bayonet, and slaying Copperheadism right,
loft, front, and rear. We notice& a few of the
lesser lights of that, party in the audience, and
their faces were as tong and, wrathful us when, in
.war times, the news of 'a rebel defeat coursed
along our streets, ' Their faces"glowed liko ap
old-fashioned cent fresh from the mint. The ap
plause which followed the home thrusts of the
Doctor fairly shook the building. Now one
could hear the tick of a watch, and now the vol
ume of applause and laughter surged• over the
room liko a tidal wave. We fear that our Demo
cratic friends did not digest their breakfasts
next morning, nor in fact for several days, there
after. In fact the Democracy, hive worn " con
structive Mourning", ever since, and we fear that
Henorturilty; to smile • again
grand' dui for th n e RialnlQUCafterniinn•
vicinity. • Prow 1200 to 1500 people. assembled
tirlisten to Hon: Wm.,ll.'Anastrong, Who spoke
with groat effect for nearly two hours. The 'en
thusiasm was . very groat, and the long. faces: of
the Democracy were eloquent witnesses of the
mortal ,damage inflicted by the logto and facts
Ocaoti.:- r pf th© meeting at Oceola cones
"In accordatice with previbusneticellen:Wm.
Armstrong and ' Dr. Doane addressed the
people of Oceola bison the political questions' at
issue Sept. Bth evening.
"A stand bad 'been erected opposito the Grant
and Colfax. Club room' nd 'torches prepared in
.anticipation of a meeting too large for any room
in , the place. More than 1200 people were
present. Martial music was is attendance, and
songs Wore, sung by this Oceola Glee Cluh.
"The meeting closed with three cheers for
Grant and Colfax and three for the entire State
and county ticket.
"Daring the night, some time after the close
of the mooting, somebody' stoned the national
flag; and tore it badly in several places. Does
any one think it was a republican ? '
"We all renumber who insulted that flag in
1861. Is not the spirit of 1881 revived?
"Next morning (Sept. 9) Mr.. Armstrong atten
ded the meeting of the Presbytery which is in
session here, and made ono of the ablest and
most liberal arguments in favor of a reunion of
the old and new school branches of the Presby
terian Church (that question then being before
the Presbytery) that I have ever heard.
Wmarvrarm..L--We have no special report from
the Westfield meeting, but.loarn that it was very
large, and that great enthusiasm prevailed. The
day was showery, but this did not dampen the
ardor of the Republicans. Thus closed half a
week of Mass meetings in Tioga county, every
ono of which was an overwhelming demonstra
tion of the power of Republican , principlei over
the hearts of the people.
-And we propose to follow it up with similar
demonstrations down to the 13th day of Octo
