GRANT'S Noyonsm.--The Democrat
ic howl about President Grant's nepot
ism is reduced at last to a pi teouswhine
because ofeigh t positions under the gov
ernmen t which are distributed ap -fol
Jesse R. Grant (father), postmaster,
A. H. Sharp (brother-in-law), mar
shal, D. C.
Fred T. Dent (brother-in-law), briga
dier-general and door-keeper.
Casey (brother-in-law), collee-
Freq. Grant (son), cadet, Nest Point
Silas N. Hudson (cousin), minister to
Judge Dent (brother-in-law)' admin
istraoon candidate for governor of Miss•
Cramer (brother-in-law), re
cently consul to Leipsic..-
' And this statement comes from the
Xdw reek World, the leading organ of
the Democracy in the county. 'l,et us
see what the thing amounts to. Jesse R.
Grant was post-master of Covington be
fore Ulysses S. Grant became preSident.
Fred. T, Debt was advanced ''to his
present military rank Of ieutenan t- col
onel in the line on the 3lst of December,
1367, and of brigadier-general by brevet
on the 13th of March, 1565, both before
Ulysses S Grant was made Paesident.—
Fred. Grant was appointed a cadet at
West Point two or three years ago, while
Andrew Johnson was President. Judge
Dent is only a candidate for au elective
office, and as ytft the administration has
shown no dispesition to favoi• his pre
tensi9ns. And finally, Mr. Cramer,
" recently consul to Leipsic," was ap
pointed either by President Lincoln or
president Johnson, we do not now re
member which. This leaves but three
cases of " nepotism" for the Democracy
to grunible.about, and in one case only—
hat of ITudson—is the appointee a
blood relative of the President. The
office of marshal of the district of Co
lumbia rs always given to an intimate
personaLfriend of the executive, and as
Dr. Shafpe undoubtedly fills the bill in
that respect, and is both worthy and
capable,there is no reason why the office
he holds should not have been given to
him. ,So, in reality, the favoritism to
relations of which the Presidenthasbeen
accused displays itself in the appoint
went of one brother-in-law' to a collec
torship and one cousin to an insignifi
cant South American mission. There
are fow men who would not have done
more for their relations than this,—

Alexander W. Randall, then Post
master General, reported at lthe last
session of the Fortieth Congress, it wilt
be'recolleeted, an estimated deficiency
in the Post office appropriatiton for the
fiscal year ending June 30, 1869 of
$3,700,000. The appropriation was made
and now the account for the year being
closed, Postmaster 'General Cresswell
shows an unexpended balance of $1,500,
000. In other word 4, four months of Re
publican administration of the depart
ment shows there would have beeano
deficiency at all for the year, but rather
surplus of earnings over expenses had
it been during the whole fiscal year in
the control of a Republican instead of a
malcontent and democrat.
..11.4.11PER'S for September is the be magazine
of the month. It contains an illustrated paper
by Theodore R. Davis, entitled "Photographs
from the High Rockies." the text of which to
sure is rather mild, though good enough 'to ex
plain the wood-cuts; a continuation of General
Idarcy's "Border Reminiscences," with Mr.
'Worth's roughly humorous (and therefore appro
priate) pictures ; an excellent popular article by
Austin Abbott on "The eye and the Camera," a
pleasant paper by Colonel T. B. Thorpe on the
"Bob White '
" commonly but improperly called in
this part of America a quail ; and.the journal of
`'A Health Trip to Brazil," by Thomas C. Erans—
a three abundantly illustrated.

The negligence of railway officials
and employees was rebuked by Judge
Barret, of the Wayne District,. at, the
Pike County Sessions. The engineer of
the freight train which caused the Port
Jervis disaster } was tried., The Judge
charged pointedly against the lwisoner.
The jury was out but five or ten min-
ntes and returned a verdict of Not Cinil
ty., -The Judge then addressed the jury
in hover° language, expressing the hope
that the spirits of the victims of the ac
cident would reproach them to the end
of their days. Amen !
On a certain Friday, not a month ago,
awatChmatt at the Passaie•river draw
bridge, on the New,York and Newark
Railway, performed an act of heroism
unexampled in gen the history of these
heroic times. A. passenger train ,was
due, or nearly due, the draw 'was open,
and the watchman was about to close it,
when his little son, ten years old, play
ing near, fell from the bridge intoithe
deep waters below. Just at this fear
ful moment the train came in sight.—
By leaiing the draw partially open the
father 'might have saved his.boy ; by
closing it be would lose his boy, and
save a hundred, possibly-more, lives, of
people in whom he had no tender inte
rest. Father, take that cable home , to
yourself for a moment—we need not
comment. lint this obscure keeper,of
the Passaic bridge ch9se quickly. He
closed the draVi. The boy drowned un
der his very eyes. The name of this
hero is ALBERT 0. DRECKEit.
Here is a lesson of devotion to duty,
and of paramount regard for the great
est good to the greatest number, which
every man and woman living may study
with benefit. To those men wh9 ha
bitually starer personal considera`tions
to oyerride their regard for the! public
welfare this story of the unselfish sac
rifice of Albert G. Drecker will sound
like a stern.l-ecusation. How insignif
icant such iAen appear in the light of
Drecker's example! How paltry the
emeuees tuimen b 7 the selfish parasite,
j—tiry - imself for - fergetruT iregg — ii
the weal of millions in remembering
his own interest! Possibly 'such men
4ay rend Drecker's story without an
otion. Indeed, we suppose every
than who can appreciate such an action
will be able to copy it in degree, if not
in kind. ;Every, man may not be able
to give his child that a hundred strati
ge,Es may ride safely over a bridge ; but
every man and woman may be able to
deny themselves something for the good
of others. That is the lesson. Con it
j -low often has the schoOl-hoy felt a
quickening of the pukes when he has
read the legend of Curtius, who is said
to haveplpnged in 'the gulf opened in
the Romah Forum, hecause the oracle
demanded the sacrifice of a noble to
save Rome. Admitting the story to he
true, Curtius gave himself to death to
save Mime. How many liniusails of
nameless heroes gave their liVes during
the ReVolution, that the birth of this
republic might be assured ! How many
tens of thousands gave their lives (lur
ing the rebellion, that the life of free
institutions might be shstained ! These
were nameless heroes. It was not gain
that . attracted them to the sacrificial
altar. it was..glory,then it was glory
which was t\ - ) ensue to a redeemed laud.
It is not probable that Albert G.
Drecker would have believed himself
capable of such an illuStrious act of
heroism an hour before it was perform
ed: Afen never know what they are
capable of until they are tried. Six
• months before the rebellion broke out
how many men would have said that
the Arnetlican peoplo would rush' to the
field by hundreds Of thousands at the
call of the Government" It was sup
posed that the madness for accumula
ting had emasculated the people ; that
the spirit of heroism wideh illumes the
history of the men who established the
republic had been eliminated from-tbe
American character. The war dissipa
ted that, with many other illusions. It
proved that the masses of our citizens
held their property and lives at the com
mand of the republic: It also proved
that that dangerous conservatism which
strikes hands with evil rather than risk
inconvenience, pertains to but a very
few of the masses.
What shall be done to encourage and
perpetuateisuch nets of heroism as that
of Drecker ? The world is at the feet
of Ida Lewis, the daughter of the New
port light-ipeper.. A noble woman,
truly. But preeker's sacrifice called
for_as much•hejoism as did Abraham's.
A, less'man, elvoted to duty would have
suffered natural affection to control him
in 'that awful moment., and a hundred
-men and women would have been
plunged into eternity without warning.
Can the Railroad Company, and the
passengers so saved from a fearful death,
do less than place Albert G. Drecker iu
possession of worldly wealth enough to
maintain him. and his for life. - Let it
not be said that such a sacrifice as that
was recognized only by the press; for
though praise may be grateful to the
best of men, it will not provide food for- -
faMilies, or shdlter and protection from
the frosts of abe. If the government

The meeting in the Court House lat
Wednesday evening syas an occasiol 1
which will not soon be - forgotten by the
Republicans and Democrats present.—
Mr. lleVeagh's speech was a model of
terse, vigorous, consecutive reasoning,
presented by an Accomplished orator. It
was an oft-hand effort, consuming but
an hour and a quarter in delivEry. Yet
it comprehended the history of parties
for a period of forty-nine years, stated
with a precision of sequence which was i
remarkable. Such an arraignment of '
the DemoCratic party has not been lis
tened to in the Court House, or else
where in this re.;ion, since David Wil
mot stood in the Bathe place, thirteen
years ago, and delivered his masterly
indictment of that party for its high
crimes "antl misdemeanors.
The house Wl's-densely crowded early
in the evening. Flom first to last the
eloquent speaker held complete control
of the audience, now convulsing them
with laughter by illustratiVe anecdote,
and now rousing the nobler emotions of
patriotism, eliciting the most enthusi-/
astic applause. And yet this speech
was little more than an earnest of the
capabilities of Mr. Mc Veagh t i 'who,
though young, has no superior hi,Penn
sylvania either as au advocate in the
Courtii, or as a defender of nu; pblitical
faith which sustains the souls and
carries forward the standard of the Re
Gen. Cameron was present, looking
hale and vigorous. At the close of Mr.
Mc Veagh's address, Judge Williams,
the chairman of the meeting, arose,
and alluding to the Generni in a few
well-chosen words introdud him to
the audience. He was received with
enthusiastic applause ; and after thank
ing the people for their friendship and
support in the past and his flattering
reception on that occasion, excused
himself from speechmaking, and closed
with an earnest exbortation to - Repub
licans to stand by the principles of the
party, which was loudly cheered.
The \Vellsboro Cornet Band added
much to the enjoyment of the meeting.
The audience separated after three
cheers for the speakers, and three cheers
for the Republican ticket.

too - nature - or ex.v
tion system, and its abuses, have been
thoroughly canvassed. The people are
responsible for its further existence in
Tioga County. In 1860, we believe, the
Republican Convention voted to adopt
the Crawford Courkty system. * That
system of- - nominating candidates is,
briefly explained, - as follows :
The Republicans assemble at their
usual places of holding electicus on a
given day, and then choose an election
board. They then vote directly for the
men 'they want nominated for tha re
spective places to be filled. The polls
open at a fixed hour and close uniform
-1 ily at a fixed hour, as in general elect
tions. A return judge from each elec
tion district takes up the count to Wells
boro, say, and then the returns are•
opened and publicly declared. The men
receiving the highest number of votes
for the places to be filled, are by that
count declared duly. nominated, and
their names go u on the ticket without
the intervention 1 delegates or any one
else. That, briefl, ,is the Crawford Co.,
system ; not `c - uch differing from
our own of votht instructions, and like
it liable to abuses, but, after all, a sys
tem which deprives the ugliest dema
gogue pf the color of right in bolting
the ticket so formed.
This systehl was voted, •we say, by
the Republican Convention of 1860.
Did you ever vote under it? You nev
er did ; and the reason why you never
did vote under it is, that the very men
who led the bolt from the regular tick
et this year, opposed, and with others,
not now disaffected, broke it down be
fore it was tried. They fought it be
cause they considered it dangerous to
the perpetuity of their tenure of office ;
and because demagogues usually like
nothing better than to manipolate Con
Good people, if you remain free it
will be by your own election; and if
you become slaves, you can blame no
body but yourselves. Thomas Carlyle,
the great Scotch thinker and philoso
pher, set out with utmost faith in the
people. After half a century of obser
vation he now denounces the masses of
mankind as incapable of successful
govertiment. If you suppose ;that he
has liz, confidence in the people with
out shbw of reason you err. Every man
who reads history, and makes up his
judgment in the light of thought mel
lowed by knowledge of human nature,
has experienced hours of anxiety bor
dering upon despair of a free govern
ment. Not many have given the race
over, as Carlyle has done ; but many
have had their faith in human integri
ty weakened almost to the same degree.
As for us, we still remain firmly con
vinced that within the present century
tlite hopes of the nations will be realized,
and the fact of a government, byl, for,
and of the people, will be firml ' es
tablished on this continent. It not
yet a fact. At present, demagogues ave
more influence over the pebple han
men who are working, not to profit
themselves, but to make free govern
ment a fact. •

Nathaniel letipes, residitig near Tun k
hannock , was .recently bitten in the
band by a " pet!' rattlesnake. His hand
and arm soon :became much swollen,
and turned to a dark, spotted color for
some days, but:by reason of the copious
[low of blood .produCed by the fangs'of
the snake, or the prompt application of
proper remedies, or both, no very great
inconvebice bas been experienced by
him. This interesting pet, one of the
largest. of his. species, having twelve
rattles, had been captured a few weeks
preiviously—htid been kept in a box
about the mill as a curiosity. His teeth
or fangs having been drawn out, he was
supposed to be harmless, and wasthere
fore handled.by his keeper in a careless
way. After the ungrateful bite, it was
found' that new fangs to the length of
nearly an inch had grown since the first
dental operation on him.
