Tho .Ponsissrlvagia, Volitocracr.,
The -New York : Citizen, the well
knowii . Democratic - weekly, forMerly
owned by "ItlileS O'Reilly," has - •no
sympathy with the Pennsylvania .De
mocracy, either in their patforin or eau
didates. It says : 7 -- ,
" No i ooridemnation of the
against which the soldiers fouitht, even
though the soldiers were praised—the
omission being aninsult, if any refer:-
ence to the subject were proper. •No
fitting expression in favor of economy
in:public .expenditures•, nothing, hi
fact, first 'or last,Aatit 'the old negro
question.and general abuse of Repub
licans. The self-same grumbling with,
out' proposing an iinprovement; the
same refusal to understand the altered
position 'of the Whole country; which
has-led to defeat -- 'se frequently; The
nomination of a man- with nothing to
recommend -him bgt the faculty of heap
ing,up wealth, with no record worth
mentioning, and 'lathing about him to
arouse ethusiasin but his money. Not
the first sign
, ! if - true loyalt, nor the
least evidence oaf a devotion to the best
interests of the whole country. Under
such circumstances .we do not expect
nor wish that the Democrats should
carry -Pennsylvania.
" We do net.wish this simply because.
it would be a triumph of the Vahan
dighams, and the J'endletone, and the
.old school that never learesmid never
forgets; the. former Wave ipower toad
ies, who imagined that elavert'" was a
thing:of beauty and a joy foiever, in
stead of being at_ best but a cruel ne
cessity of the Constitution. A triumph
'On such principles and AV ith such -can
didates would :only revive the dead
men of the North and lithe South', the
putrescent bodies which have bees
smothered under the loyalty of the na- 1
tion ; the Li - tangent rebels, whether,
they register themselves as enemies of
the nation in Cincinnati, Harrisburg,
or New Orleans. A victory now would.
bring the-extremists !wick to life and
power, and with them another defeat
in 1872."
THE MO TILER d r .GLARY. —Margaret White, the mother of John White
Geary, was' a native of Washington
county, Maryland, and inherited sev
eral families of slaves. Upon becoming
their legal owner, she first educated,
and then freed them all. She was after
wards reduced to comparative need by
the failure of her husband, who lost his
Property in an early etthrt Ui develope
the now - more prosperous iron interests
of Westmoreland* county, Ponneylva
ilia. But we may well suppose that
the noble woman who would not hold
her fellow-beings in bondage, and who
gave them sufficient education to enable
theni to take care Of themselves, never
regretted that• she had impoverished
herself to do them justice.
It might be expected that such a
mother would rear her son in the same
principles. Though educated in the
"Democratic scheel,Jolin W. Geary early
came to hate and to strike hard blowS
at the Slave Pewee. 4 • -
In" ; California, he battled,- with Fre
. moht, Broderick, and other.ti, to keep
the Curse of human slavery from the
new State.
In Kansas, he again met and battled
the same 'insidious the.
Finally, during the four long years of
the Rebellion, he faced the besotted
Power when it dared to appeal to arms.
In all these, the mother's conscience
was shown
,in the son's deeds,, and illus
trated the moral principle which, Al
any public man, is infinitely
to all the wealth of a Ortesus.
York Herald thus curtly disposes of
the work of the late Harrisburg Con
vention :
"The Democrats in Pennsylvania
have nominated Asa Packer as their
candidate for Governor, but the con
vention that nominated him have hung
a hob to - that kite • which wilt swamp
him. They have pronounced against
Degro suffrage, a principle the Conser
vatives of Virginia accepted us.a liosi
tive fact, and by the help of that vote
not only elected their candidate for
Governor, but gave a death btilig to the
carpet baggers and helthlwags. The
Pennsylvania Democracy, in smoi!ti
ering 11 jester Clymer, their obi eat li
date, have only presented a now victim
tq he placed upon the political boairol i i
for the 6eary laws to peck at!"
. .
Col. F. C. liooton, District A ttprney
of Chester county has issued a volume
of the General and Special Road Laws
of this State. The book gives a short
statement of the method,of obtaining a
new road. It gives the power
thority of Road Jurors ; the duties of
Supervi ors under the General and
e IL,
Special au's; and the duties of Road
Contraehrs. ' Every Supervisor, Jus.!
tice of the Pore, Road Contractor and
Surveyor, shotdd have a copy. Every
man accustomed to serve upon Road Ju
ries, and every man interested in know
ing Just what. the law of the road is ,
should; have a copy. By sending 51
cents to George F. Worraii, West Ches
ter, Pa., a copy of the book will he sdnt,
in return, free of postage.
The outlook is good in .Pennsylvania
for the Republican party., The opposi
tion vainly endeavor to fasten one word
of reproach with truth on either Gov . .
Geary or Judge Williams. The lives of
both have been free from any act or
private or public chtracter which can
now be cited against them. That they
will carry the State by a large majority
appears 43ore certain with each return
ing day, es everywhere the camp-fire is
brightly burning, and the Republican
hosts are cementing together an - the
conflict. !Never ' before has victory
seemed so certain, and come it will so
sure as men were ever true to - correct
and patriotic, principles.—Etniira Ad

nomination of the - Democrats for Gov
ernor of Ohio. The N. Y. iferoht thus
" Gen. itoseerans cannot swallow
Ohio Democracy. Ho declines the nom
ination of that party
_ - or Governor,
which nomination ho kindly kolas an
honor, explaining that he must devote
himself to "duties sacred to- his credi
tors and his family." We regret that
the General's creditors are of so much
moment in his life; but only fancy the
chagrin of the Ohio Democrats Mien a
man thus declares that he would rather
pay his debts than run on their ticket."
Base is the ingratitUde of the opposi
tion press ! They. are now abusing
Governor Geary for Pardoning some
convicts, all of whom were probably
Democrats, but for all,of whom there
were ample recommendations to his
clemency. "We won't: have Cass,"
swore the Icfellfullin mob• -at -Harris
burg,' we must have a Governor who
will let our boys run, when they are
nabbed." • They went for Packer, to
a man If Governor Geary had ha
bitually misused his prerogative as they
charge, every thief and scoundrel in
the Dernberatie party would be his
friend. - j •

Wm. P. FUREY, Esq., late of the
Clinton Democrat, has- become editor
of the Carbon _Democrat In his salut
atory lie speaks of himself as " ofie of
-the laboring millions." Which of
Packer's millions does ho 'allude to ?
However, Mr. Furey will do well in'
the field he has chosen: He has
abundant zeal and is a birKloll pure
Democrat: •
The Itepublicarie cf 'San - Francisco
two years ago sufferdd the snares and
devices of the Demneraey to entrap
them into entrusting the Government
of that city _to Democratic bands. In
return the Democracy have now nomi
nated a set of gamblers and roughs for
city officers, and the better class of cit
izens now talk of reorganizing the old
Vigilance Committee, which a dozen
years ago hung and\ banished so many
orthodox denweratiA, and so conquered
a peace.
The Democracy are greatly shocked
that Gen. Grant should go to Lin!
Branch while American citizens lan
guish -in foreign dungeons. It is a
shame, though we don't see wily
American citizens should cuiler more
when Grant is at Long Branch: We
notice that the editor of the Corning
,Denzoercit has lately been a "gallivant
ing" about for pleasure while his neigh
bor Snillh lay sick with colic from eat
ing too much cucumber. The editor
must be a heartless ecatup to do that.
Do these Democratic editors ever
laugh on Sunday?
We do not object to Mr. Packer be
cause he is worth, say, twenty millions.
Nor do we object to Gen. Gearibecause
he is not worth twenty thousand. But
Asa Packer was 'nominated because ho
was immensely rich ; and Gen. Geary
was Irenominated,because, in peace and
in wear, he has ever been faithful to his
country ; and whether as Governor of
Kansas in a stormy time, or the leader
of an army against the Southern wing
of the Democratic party in rebellion,
or us Governor of this 'Commonwealth,
ho has provod hirnoolf al-wive able, td
ways efficient, alivays honest.
Nine years ago the Republican party
wrested the reins of power from the
Democratic party by constitutionally
appointed means. .The Democracy had
enjoyed the honors and emoluments of
place for near half a,'century.
When the Republicans succeeded to
power, the South rose in armed rebel
lion, and received the sympathy and
encouragement of the leaders of .the
Northern wing of the Democratic party.
A vast conflict ensued, and lasted four
years ; when the last armed rebel gave
up his arms and,\ the Government re
mained victor over armed treason.
Herein is a parallel: Mr. John F.
Donaldson having for thirty-four years
enjoyed the honor and salary of Pro
thonotary and Clerk of the Courts in
Tioga County, was last month, and by
a tribunal of his own naming, defeated
by Leroy Tabor
. for a nomination. - -
Whereupon, Mr. Donaldson, copying
with fidelity the action of the South,
raises the standard of rebellion.
In other words having publicly
pledged himself to abide by the decis
ion of the Republican County Conven
tiou ho now repudiates that pledge,
and goes before the people - with a lie
upon his banner.
Now, what more to perfect the par
allel? This: As the South had the
sympathy and encouragement of the
Northern Democracy, so Mr. Donald
son has the sympathy and encourage
ment of the Democracy of Tioga County
in his result. .
We shall give Mr. Donaldson fair play
in return for his foul play. These facts
cannot be successfully gainsayed -
'phet'Demoeraey were active and
untiring, everywhere, for Mr. Donald
sou, before the primary elections. They
offered to bet two to one on Mr. - Don
aldson ; they sent their active men to
work for him.
2. On the day of the caucus, promi
nent Democrats walked the streets of
Welisboro, peddling Donaldson tickets;
worked all the afternoon, leading Shaky
voters up to the polls and arguing their
cases when questions arose ; ;got in all
the Dbmecratic votes they could, and
tried get in more. And this conduct
was c ramon elsewhere in the County.
3. When Mi. Donaldson was defeated
by a vote of more than two to one, and
did not go into the Convention, leading
Democrats at once conferred with him
about bolting the ticket. These nego-
OlatiOns, of the mithatito of ' which we
are.. fully advised, continued several
weeks;---Mr. Donaldson studiously avoid
ing his old work fellows during this time,
with a' single ezeption—and f tat last the
publke has his announcement as a bolt
er's candidate.
4. The primary elections were as fairly
condUcted this year as they ever were;
and there is as' much complaint upon one
halides the other ; fairer thantheylyere
three years ago, when several elcelson
districts were carried against Captain
Backer by Denwcratic,;votes cast at the
primaries—stating it mildly. Captain
Backer and his friends, as well as some
who remained 'neutral, knew this, then;
and when same heated partisans•recom
'mended Capt. Bailker to run 41ridepend

ent,' he plumply refused, alleging that
be had pledged his word to abide by the
decision of the' Convention, and ' that
his word was all'eacred as his bolid. We
alWaystegarded that . refusal and reason
honorable. - 'Cart it that wnivere de
ceived ? .
5. Copperheads, not actiVe, working
Republicans, are the, bead and front d i r ,
this "slight unpleasantness." . Theiat'r
tack, ostensibly led by Mr. Donaldson;,
is not upon the local ticket it,is bppn Gov.
Geary and Judge Williams ; and for
every Democratic vote cast for Mr. Don
aldson 'some Reptiblican will be re
quired to vote' for Asa Packer. We
request readers to make anote of this
affirmation_; becaupe it is made in view
of the fact that Such is the: bargain be
tween the managers of this little affair;
and aslpalpable evidence of that face we
submit this, other and incontrovertible
fact, ticiAt—
" RepUblican friends" of. Mr. Don
aldson hereabout have already made
advances to certain Democrats, offering
to vote. for Packer if they would vote
for Donaldso. Do you want names?
We do not blame the Democracy of
this county for pushing this matter. If
they can trade their votes and get a few
hundred Republicans to vote for Packer
that is well enough for Packer.
But we have been au advocate of Re
publican principles longer than has
Mr. Donaldson, though many years his
jnnior ; and not all the Packer meal in
creation can cover up the pussy cat
that lurks in that "independent" tub,
to be flung to the Copperhead whale
next October.
Every Republican should at once see
if he is assessed and registered. The
new law requires every man who in
tends to vote in October to be registered
by the Assessor before the second day
of October. But the right way is to
see to it to-day. See the Assessor of
your election district at once, and if
you are not down on his books, request
him to put down your name, your res
idence, and your occuriation. If an
I dopted citizen, and not a voter for
live • •ars in that district, you must ex
hibit yo tapers to the Assessor. Ae-
tive Ropublicaus should see to it that
all are registered, but the better way is
for every voter to attend to his own
case first.
We suppose that it is understood that
the township and borough officers for
1870 are to be elected on the second
Tuesday of next October. Such is the
We cannot break over our rules and
permit a discussion of the criminal cases
about to be adjudicated by our courts in
these columns. We have studiously
refrained from publishing the views of
both parties touching the case. in Oyer
and Terminer from the eastern part of
the county, because the function of a
newspaper is to secure publiclloafety
through impartial trials in Court. In
the case alluded to it will be difficult
enough to impanel a jury at the best;
to bruit the numerous allegations abroad
would be to render it next to impossible
to impanel any jury at all, unless it
were done __by_tuir
ignorant of everything. We do not
intend to bias public opinion as regards
any case to be tried at the approaching
term. Thero is no necesity for sound
ing any warning to secure" life or prop
erty, and theikore to imblish rumors
would hinder rather th!n aid justice.
The Crawford County system of nom
inations prevails with the Lancaster
County Republicans. Under that sys
tem the Republican electors vote di
rectly for the candidates they wish
nominated, and those receiving the
highest number of votes for the respec
t ive places to be tilled are declared nom
inated. In the last Examiner, how-
Ozer, we observe that Martin S. Fry,
Chairman of the County Committee,
gives notice that ail candidates must
give a written pledge that they will
abide by the decision of the primary
elections or their names will not be
placed upon the primary tickets. Is it
possible that any Lancaster Republican
officeseeker would run against the tick
et after having publicly pledged -him
self to abide by the decision of the
primary elections?
Last year, by fraud, and by intestine
divisions among Republicans, the City
of Philadelphia was handed over to the
Bill McMullen Democracy. This year
the Democracy have nominated a class
of dangerous characters and one felon
for city officers, and even the better
class of Democratic newspSpers cry
out against the outrage. But the con
trolling element 'cif the Democratic
party especially in the centers of popu
lation consists of thieves and prize
fighters, and why should not they have
the lion's share of the offices and the
However, Republicans cannot escape
the responsibility for these calamities.
They cannot trifle with the business of
govkning and escape damage.
The number of Assessment districts
In this Congressional District has been
reduced from 14 to 10. The number of
sub-districts In this county is now two,
one having been abolished and the
county redistricted. Mr. M. V. Purple
has the northern district and Mr. M.
Bullard the southern. Hon. S. B.
Elliott, for several years the Assistant
Assessor of the Eastern district, ten
dared his resignation to Asiessor Bowen
some time since, but.continued to servo)
until the new districts were established.
Mr. Elliott was one of the most faithful
and efficient Assessors in the State,
and his official service has been very
profitable to the Government.
The tribe of "Damphooll' appears to
have bought up all the Democratic
newspapers and to' be Hlllng their col
umns with abuse of Grant for visiting
Long Braneh, ) the oil and ifon regions.
We do not doubt that they, . and all
other rebels, would be glad to have
Grant stay in Washington mid die from
the malaria of the Potomac marshes.
We hope the General will not lie awake
nights because of the criticism of these
fellows. Of course he reads all the
papers. ' ,
