thishection of country was at once taken
south from here and transferred to some
member of the band, who would trans
, feelt to another, and he still to another,
when the animal would be sold to some
unsophisticated individual, who, if ever
culled upon for the horse by the owner,
of course could not give -the name of
the may of whom he bought it. Car
tinges were taken to an isolated point
near Hazleton, where all the appliances
were ready, and they received a 'com
plete overhauling in
,painting mkt] trim
ming, making so complete a fichange
that the owner himself eould not rec
ognize his property. Robes and whips
were also manipulated to avoid recog
nition, and thus their nefarious work
was carried on. A Jarge amot of
" property has .thus been stolen an dis
posed of, hud no doubt the profits of the
gang were quite large.
Roth is a young man, formerly from
Saucon township, Northampton county,
where his- family is well known 'and
highly respected, hfs father being a
wealthy farmer and one of the most re,
spectable -citizens of the'township. A
few years since, young Roth went into
the livery and horse jocket business at
liazleton, and was continually,reeeiving
fresh hordes from " down country," as
he expressed it, which were disposed of
as soon as opportunity °tiered. These
were evidently . the fruits of his col
leagues' labors in the lower counties.
The breaking up of this gang of Al;
laths will be gratifying news to all hon
est people, and we hope no efforts, will
be spared to ferret out and bring' every
one of them to justiee.-21fauch Chunk

When we said that the )endorsement
of Gov. Fenton's election by the Elmi
ra Advertiser, ought to estop that pa
perfrom criticising • the action of the
Legislature of this State, it was in
view of the fact that the Aqvertfaer bad
spoken of the election of Mr. Scott
rather sneeringly. John Scott is not a
politician. Gov. Fenton is a politician.
We have never' known Mr. Scott'S-rep
utation for strict integrity to be ques
tioned. It is impossible to say as much
of politicians by trade. But the Adver
tiser's article is so candid, and general
ly just, that we propose to publish- it
next week, so as to give Gov. Fenton
the benefit of the judgment of one who
certainly admires the man, and-admir
ing,knows how to praise without de
generating into mere man-worship.
The selection of professional, politi
cians as incumbents of high offices hr
the government, may be said to have
had its beginning in the nomination of
Martin. Van Buren in 1836. Prior to
that time few men had been named for
the,Presidency whose names were not.
historic, and trh se . lives were not in
tolerable accordance with the laws of
moral and spiritual growth. From that
time forward to tins, either one, or both
of the great parties of the country has
presented, invariably, a political dem
agogue lac ery four years„ as a
for the ot.mages or the people.
Very Eieldorn, for more than thirty
years, has any Party sought a Man for
the Presidential ()ince. Still m'ch.e sel
dom has any party sought men for any
office of considerable profit or honor.
lint all parties have been ; more or less
fiber with professional
,rs from the highest to the least (»
daces in the gift of the electors. Van
liven, Clay, Scott, Polk, Cr, Pierce,
Buchanan. Douglas. Seymour—all then
had the Presidency on the brain, atni
sought that, or other places, as an
241 Lieutenant seeks a Captain
try. Office, proininenee in public life,
was at mule the bane of each and all of
them. On the other hand wo have
Harrison, Taylor, Fremont, Lincoln,
and G rant- men whom the office sought,
or whom a party sought for—whose
presence in the van as leaders of a great
party was.almost as unexpected to them
as tbeir popularity was brilliant.
The nomination of each of these men
was a significant happening; but by
far the most significant happening in
the political world, which pertains to
modern history, was the nomination of
Gen. Grant. The war had aroused am
bition in thousands of hearts, in which,
otherwise, it had remained dormant.
Like all historic exigencies, the exigen
cy of the Rebellion only developed a
tew - great men. Among them, and the
superior of all, stood' a man so modest
that his promotion was rather crowded
upon him than desired by him, and so
reticent that he won the cognomen of
"The Sphinx." This man was taken
up, in name by the Democratic party,
early in the first year of peace; and free
ly offered the candidacy of that - Pirty,
" if— ;" but " the sphinx - ," refused
to answer questions put in the subjuner
tive fettm. Meantime, the people,
without whom even professional poll-
Velma would starve, awaited in silence
the effort of Democratic courtship up
on "The Sphinx." The effect was not
appreciable; . but when- the occasion
arose for "action," and the. General of
our Armies heard the command of the
Senate, and gracefully handed the port
folio of the War Office "to Secretary
Stanton, the Dernociacy fell back in
confusion, and the piople - , more pa_tient
and exacting, adopted him as their
chief and leader from that moment.
From that moment the nomination and
election of General Grant was assured ;
and the subsequent assembling of the
delegates of the Republican party in
Convention at Chicago was a mere for
mal bseA'auce of a custom. ,The
managers of the Republican parts , no
more -thought Of selecting any Other
man as a pandidate than they 'thought
of proclaiming a monarchy.;
1 In striking contrast to this obedience
to popular will was the TlUMlllaty Bah
Convention of unrepentant rebels and
Copperheads. The Democratic masses
expected the nomination of a num
w h ose milit a ry service, if not equal to,
'caat least Ur. tthequiY ,, Its that , it

had selected and elected a man un-,
`known in political finesse, a very child
of their own, whose' love of justice,
high integrity, and - strong cowmen
.ease have impressed themselves upon
the greatest minds of the age in -all
countries. This, whether so received
or not, was a signal victory of the peo
ple over the politicians. The election
of Grant was the first-fruit of the vic
tory'. In the future of this nation
these popular movements will be seen
to control its destinies and multiply its
prosperity. Forward from such a
grand beginning—a _ beginning which
is no less than the-perfe . ct enfranchise
ment of the peoploif they please to
make it such, and their declaration of
independenee of tricky leaders—..for
ward from such a gMnd beginning we
take it there is but one path ; and that
the path of assured rule by the people.
We are among thOse who regard these
popular uprisings as pledges, that the
way to preferment lies, not through of
fice-seeking and the arts of the dema
gogue, but through such reputation
for honor, honesty, fidelity, and com
mon sense as shall lift the candidate a
head and ..:shoulders above _themoisy
crowd of ciamorers for place.
It is ;in pursuance of this new and
noble determination of the people that
within the last month Hannibal Ham
lin, of Maine, John Scott, of Pennsyl
vania, Carl Schurz, of Missouri, M. H.
Carpenter; of Wisconsin, and D. D.
Pratt, of Indiana—all, save one un
known to public life, or nearly so, have
been elected to the U. S. Senate. We
•do not suppose that the people indica*
ed these men in so many words ; but
the manifest determination of the peo
ple to fling political hacks, overboard
and substitute fresh men, meri of hon
esty, in their stead, has modified the
action of managing men with the m
ina we chronicle. These,) ienatora have
been elected by virtue of popular will
made known in the selection of such
men as Grant for high position..
The reins are in the hands of the
people ; the latter having made a show
of resuming them after years of misrule
by politicians,, It is for: them -to- say
whether office shall seek -the man, or
the man the office. It.,:ls,for them to
take up sterling integrfty, and plain
common sense, and place them in the
positions so long maladininistrated by
place-hunters. If they do this the fu
ture is luminous with hope; and if
they succumb to the blandishments of
demagoguery, they can blame only
their own supineness. Which shall it
It is our misfortune not to agree with
the geutletnen who consumed' two
hours in speecheg, upon -
to authorize the ti•pecker of the House
at Harrisburg, to appoint a sufficient
number of offices to conduct the busi
ness of the House, " not to exceed 27."
The trial) who would insist that the
House should be scrimped in official
-ervtee, ita i mot our sort or man, by any.
means. ilut why limit the number
not to exceed 27?" If twenty would
,1 0 , why authorize the appointment of
seven more? If ten would do, why per
mit the appointment *of seventeen

oil - leers enough why such a resotution at
aft ?
The resolution appears to us a "Job."
The " outs " ask for places. The ins"
create more. That is the way it looks.
If the House lacked officers, . the prop
er mode of action was to appoint a com-
Z22188/022 to examine, determine the ,
number wanted, and' then report to
the House. We assure the Legislature .
that such reckless ways of doing busi
nese will not fail of severe reprehen
sion from that portion of the people
who do not look upon the public treas
ury-as their' oyster. We regret that Mr.
Strang offered such a resolution; bound,
as we are, to admit that ho offered it in
good faith and without designs upon
the treasury. It was a mistake, in our
4. 1 dg m e.n t , to preps it so vigorously as it
was pressed; and its adoption by a ma
jority of 27 surprises us. The only rem
