many people were ) frightened, but not
serious damage was done.

felt at Scranton, in this State, where,
the wails of Eevera.l buildings were .
Cracked, and the pemile. considerably,
alarmed.- At Albany it lasted about:
The BIUTIO shock was felt in •Wellsbo
ro, very sensibly, by several persone.--':
A. Map in our office visibly trembled on
the wall.
The Warrc Mail has been enlarged
to a thirty-six column paper, and pre
sents a really fine appearance. It. is
One of the best country papers on our
list, and we are glad to note this im
provement, as an evidence of its pros
perity and of the appreciation its pa
trons have of the effort required to [vac)
a good country paper. The editor, Mr.
E. Cowan, was formerly con nected with
the Janzeslown Journal.
On the 12th instant, the President is 7
sued a proclamation to prevent the or
ganization of armed forces in. the Uni
ted States the purpose of
, carrying
on thiiitary Opbrittions against friendly
poWers. He enjoins the dlity of prose
cuting all (anises, upon the ofricers w of
the United States, and gives assurance
that no one convicted'of such an offense
will receive clemency at his hands, to
saye them from the penalty of the law.
' The triumphant Democracy Of this
county had a good • time in Wellsboro
over the election of Mr. Sherwood, on
Wednesday evening last. There wits
a bonfire, music, speaking, a supper,
and free - abd easy fun of all sorts.
We did not hear the speeches, Wit we
understand that they were Mild and'
conciliatory. We are informed that
Mr. Sherwood does not claim Lip elec
tion as a Democratic victory.; Ile as
serts the truth, when he says he owes
his election to Reput,ylicaus; yet we tail
to see wherein it is 11 triumph fUr the
Republican party ; and the political
complexion of the men -, who celebrated
his good luck, makes it appear to us ve;; -
ry like a good, old fashioned Democra
tic victory. We doubt not 'that every
Democrat in the county who 'opposed
the right of soldiers to vote, who voted'
in 1864 that the war was 'a failure, and
in 1868 for the reinstatement of rebels
to power, and for the replidiatiott of the
naiional debt, Was present to celebrate
the victory ; and we do not blame them ;
for Mr. Sherwood was with them all
through the dark history of their party,
and now declares that his political sen
timents remaiu unchanged. .
It is a mere streak of good hick fur
Mr. Sherwisid, t but he is ele'eted. We
cbuld Mule 11101'0 than one man in this
district:who could beat him 2,1100 vetes
in a now electiOn. We w s ish Mr. Shy.-
wooe good luck in all things bnt poll
tics : in this, his good luck is our ha
luck, and had luck to the country ;I
hence we oppose him and his party,
now and ever. - •
The following are the official, pnijori
tiesiior Congress in this district
nter, for Sherwood,
Tioga, for Armstrong,
l'Ottery 14
wood's majority,. o-
Ljority in Lycoming and Cen
yes is unexpectedly large. Ly
,gvas put down by the Demo
crats at 600, and we did rot suppose it
could reach 'those figures; There was
'opposition to 'Mr. Armstrong at home,
in our own Party, whioh has resulted
in his defeat. There can be no Patti
cation, for the defeat\o \ f a great party, in
a contest involving prl so vast
importance, .on: personal grounds. A -
party should be ,cautioils in making
choiceof,candidates; but there can he
no sufficient reason gOien for action . _
of any prominent member oNhe Re
, pliblican party,. who was instrumental
the defeat of Mr. Armstrong.\His
<ability, i tegrity and fitness are \ao
knowledg d by all parties. Scarcely
,any distil, t in this State is more ably"
or faithfay represented In Congress,
than thiri 4 .iy Mr. Armstrong. He has
ever stood firmly by the - principles of
the party'Whioh elected him. We have
repeatedly expressed all these opinions,
and now that he is defeated, we have no
occasion to renounce them.
But Mr. Armstrong was not enough
of a politician, in the gross senseof that
word, to unite all elements in his own
behalf. It Is the great danger which
threatens our 'system of government,
that men, to be successful' in party Pol.
itios, must become politicians pure and
simple—that is, they must learn to be
subservient to all interests, even at the
expense of manhood and the purer
qualities which all men in places of
power should possess. We see this pro
position exemplified on all sides; - The
vault is, that the best men do not get
into °Mee. Availability Is of more ac
count than fitness.' When a great par
ty looks about for a candidate for 13,resi
dent, the
,question is not, - Whi4 - the
man - best qualified by education an ex
perience to fill the place with lion r to
himself and the country, but ra her,
Who will unite the, most elements of
popularity.? Who has done the least
with 'ivhicli any fault can be found ?
Who has no politica( or public record to
stare him in the face? ;Good men May
be selected in this way, by chance ; and
sq very bad and IA usultable, men may
hi chosen, . , -

• Of course there are men who are u
fortunate in _their manner of getting
along with other men 7. The principal
difficulty has been, that tbe patty bus
-grown so large. that ten men in its
ranks wanted office, • where there was

Sa With Mil. Armstrong In . this di§-
' tract :;offices grew short, and candidates
multiplied.' The ,disappointed at' once
set 'about their work of detraction.—
i Such things lititi - beati'before, but they
' probably had rarely been so'bad at atiy
other time. They were considered coin
paratiVelY of little account, and the re
, stilt is that there are many towns in the
district, where enough Republicans re-,
mained at home to have elected Mr.
Armstrong, under the belief that be
was as , goOd as elected already. This
comes close home;—we should learn a
lesson by it. Weturged the importance

. Potter county did nobly. All praise
to the Land of Leaks. She is not so
leaky as she might be. Let" her take
the banner.
For the first time in many years, the
enfranchised colored citizens of Penn
sylvania haw) taken_part in a general
Heleetion. Many of them have grown
gray with age, deprived of this privi
lege. The race so latel3A slaves now
.stands not only free before I the law, but
equal with all others in the scale o r 01.
vil rights and political privileges. !Op
pressed and down-trodden, hated, des
pised and persecuted for no other rea
son than distinction of race, it is .not
straage that they have fallen behind, as
a class, in the unequal struggle. Born
with the same sign of the incompre
hensible Creator upon them, it was the
law of might only which placed them
Under ban, and the infamous wicked
peas of beings created in the likeness of
the same Father, which imposed this
bondage upon them. For generations
multiplied into centuries, they have
.borne the infliction of so great a wrong
patiently, until the glad day came, and
they were free as other men. The dark
ness grew deeper : yesterday, slaves;
to day.. rs Fvra e5.1.4...ei al 41.
zees I flow great the fact! The na
tions stood -amazed at such a siglit,!—
The Great Law commanded, and it was
done ! Men trembled at the exhibition
of.such power; and the common dis
cretion of all who were, not blinded by
passion oeprejudice, led them to seek
shelter from the threatening penalty.—
The decree went forth in blood—the
_blood of the oppressors ;, but when the
final cohsuMMation• was delayed, the
oppressed vindicated their claim to
manhood on the field of battle. Many
a dusky face put on the livery of death
in the cause of that country by the
laws of which they were enslaved.
'The North had bersharein the wrong,
and she suffered for It : `the South had
a greater, and she suffered more. In a
day, it cannot be fully realized : in the
fullness of time it must be.

It remains to be seen how' well these
newly made citizens will/discharge the
duties citizenship: ^iTO man is qual
ified to vote, unless Possessed of Burn
dent intelligence au q independence to
decide for 'himself upon the merits of
men RV measures. Voting by proxy,
whesrthe proxy has all to say, and the
voter nothing, is the substance of a plu
ral franchise, in which noon d not
stand upon equal footing, as Ingle
\ units, but upon unequal footing, in ra
tikwith their power and influence:—
Thus it is that unprincipled men be l
come \ dangerous in a republic where
universal suffrage prevails, and wherein
all are not sufficiently intelligent to act
wisely. 'or a man to induce another
to vote ashe'wants him to, no matter
by what means, is equivalent to giving
such a man two votes ; and herein lies
the great danger. 'Too many men mean
nothing when they deposit their bal
lots, and permit others to give thein
such expression as they, see fit. If a
vote be bought with money, this places
a price upon the ballot of every other
voter: it is not the man but the money
that votes. It Is capital which reigns.
And it does pot matter what the indoce
merit may be.• If a poor man be In debt
•to a rich :nian, and, through threats or
fear of Persecution; he is induced to
vote as 'another wishes, this destroys
the , equilibriurn,, duplicates the power
of' one, while it abrogates that of the
other, and may make the false, appear
to - be the true result. It is said two
heads are wiser than 'one': the aggre
gate., judgment and common sense of
many should be better than that of the
few. 'But this, depends: If' the, few-be
wise and the mafly ignorant, the judg
ment of
. all united would be more like
ly to mislead than if, all .were wise. In
h republic, the theory is that: all are
wise enough to,act the; part of citizens.
The:„;trolible thatiktials ;ma eo in
fact. -Then follows the necessity oted
ucation , and the propriett of argument.
It is proper to argue and explain theo
ries and party principles. This is gne
way to educate: But the unscrupulous
distort the facts, misapply theories, and
mislead the ignorant, by cunning eo-
PhistrY• With all the multiplied means
of eorrupting elections put in 'practice
and clearly before our eyes, we are .al
most led to say, The ballot G 3 a farce, a
fraud, a cheat; a, snare sto catch-good
men in the tolls of the wicked: •; •
*ale negraPO are'. ltelyippat, some
ignorant. So wink:white in4n. Some
are mete! and upitig ht, Itoneit and pure;
some low, deployed; entirely devoid of
moral principle, and unfit to exercise
even the most unimportant political
privilege. But it will uot t do .to except
a class or a race. There is no morerea
sou, for excluding the negro
,than the
liishmim, the Frenchman; thetihina
man, on the
_ground of

Want of moral principle; for ihere is
ignorance and immorality qtr Lacey.
Thep tie are not to • condemn all be
cause some offend. If som e negroes get
drunk and Vote the Democrat() ticket;
or if Seine white man get,thein drunk,
that they may do So; it 1s not the negro
so much to blame; as the man who sellS
the whisky in the one case, or gets him
drunk in the other. A negro, to vote
the Democratic tieketiethisage, sho'ld
be soundly drunk' very soon thereafter,
that he might sustain his self'respect,
When come to his senses, by passing the
whole transaction 'off as a delusion of
the brain. This proposition does not
admit of argumen
We do not think' it desirable that all
of any class or race should vote blindly
for any party, regardless of principles,
no matter what that party may have
done for such class or race. No favor
should incline a man to vote either one
way or the other; and no act should be
done, merely , as an inducement for any
race or class to vote for any party, The
Republican party gave the ballot to the
colored citizen, not as a bribe for his
vote, but rather because it is right that
all men should be equal before the law.
For aegro to vote the Republican tic
kethecause that party accord(' him the
privilege of -voting, is no"Attfer thdp for

Gratitude should not influence any man
to vote against his principles : mknhood
will itlWays impel a man to vote for a
benefactor, if he,can do so without'corn
promise oK his principles.
It may be well for the Freedmen, that
some of their race have been induced
to vote the' Democratic ticket. When
a'party asks a man to vote, it cannot
well gainsay his right, to vote thereaf
ter. it may be the height of impudence
for that pay to say to the colored men
in one breath, " We are opposed to con
ferring the right' to vote upon you,"
and in the next, - ".We want you to vote
with us ;" but this is one way In which
the wrath of man is made to praise God,
It is a dismce, under all the" circum
stances, for any negro to vote the Dem
ocratic ticket; but there are low, drun
ken and worthless fellows among them,
who are not degraded by doingso. For
our own part, we prefer such men sho'ld
not vote the Republican ticket : we
cheerfully surrender all such to the De
mocracy, inasmuch as we desire to Bee
no war of classes or races. If these ne
groes can thus gain a place in the Dem
ocratic family affections, it will be all
the better in the end. There is no dis
tinction of color in the law of affinity.
The better class of colored citizens will
not vote the Democratic ticket, so long
as the Republican party remains true
to its principles.
In TBGf► the Democratic party of Penn
sylvania embodied the following reso
lution in their platform : -
"That the Democratic - fatty of Pennsylvania
is opposed to conferring upon the nogro the right
to vote ; end we do emphatically deny that there
is any right or power in Congress, or elsewhere,
to impose negro suffrago upon the people of this
State, in opposition to thew will."
This was after our Legislature had
passed the.resolution ratifying the 15th
an,.... , ..rimara • 43.,41 133 Eh. , mmat platform,
the Democracy declared that " the res
olution making such ratification should
be promptly repealed."
Here, then, is a party which stands
pledged in its last declaration of prin
ciples, to take away the right of the ne
gro to vote, now asking negroes to vote
for its candidates ! . That party will
seize the first opportunity which pre
sents itself, to rescind the amendments
and laws intended to secure the freed
men their civil and political Fikhts in
the Southern States. Such is; its de
clared intention. But it cannot suc
ceed. The work is done, past thei
power to undo it. The people - do not
go backward.
However reat deal of trouble can
be made, a g eat amount of suffering
can be inflicte . upon the freedmen of
the South, by a repeal of the 'laws of
Congress passed to enforce the amend
ments and to prevent the substantial
re-enslavement of the race. This is the
policy of the Democratic party, it we
may' jthlge from their past history and
the expression of sentiment iii. the De
. press of the country: Time
will settle it all as it should be. Demo
cracy wants strength : negroes' votes
count ; and the color does , not appear
in the result. .-
