THE DEMOCRATIC MEETINGS.
Greeley, Spates, Doty, HcCInre and Effing.
Tlie Democrats ar manhniling -their
Losts. Almost every night tlieir camp
fires may be seen brightly burning, and
the roll of tlieir drums and the notes of
their bugles are beard from all points
For weeks they have been concentrating
their forces and perfecting their plans
bere at Mifflin, for the invasion of the
county. This werk will find them on tluir
raid through Juniata, collecting and in
spiring, by speech making and associa
tions, their clans at the various towns and
school houses throughout the county
The Republicans, if ihcy do not desire
a rout, must double their picket lines
and increase their vigilance, so that this
active and wily foe can be met and com
pelled to sunender unconditionally ou the
second Tuesday of next October.
Last week was the most eventful one,
so far, in this campaign ; both the ring
and anti-ring wings of that party were
actively at woik. The respective Chair
men, Jackmau and Coder, on last Wed
nesday, announced in separate posters,
that the man above all others whom thry
the most bitterly denounced and detested
politically and religiously but one ebort
year ago, would 'arrive at Mifflin station
in a special train, at 10 minutes past 7
o'clock in the evening. We are a staid
people, np here among the bills, away
from the contaminating influence of much
money and extravagance seen and felt
about great business and political centers,
but not so staid that curiosity to sea dis
tinguished people Lo3 failed to find a
lodgment amongst as. Tho posters of
the Chairmen excited the zeal of the
Democracy and stimulated the curiosity
of the people generally to see Father
Greeley. Democracy was in a "hub
bub" all day. The services of the band
were secured early in the day for the oc
casion. The Republicans, witb a pleas
ant demeanor, looked on at the manceu
vering of their erriug Democratic breth
ren and determined to be present too to
witness the zeal of the new converts to
Greeley it m. AH the faces of the Dem
ocratic babies and little people were
washed and their best "bib and tucker"
put on with many eudearing admonitions
to not make mud cakes or throw dust,
that day so that they would be present
able at the reception of. tbe Sage of
Chappaqaa. In order to appear to a
great advantage and keep any anti-ring
man from getting an introductory in on
tbe arrival of tbe new Democratic chief,
th master of the ring went to Harris,
burg and there got on the train. This
conduct seems erratic when placed nnder
the denunciations that the Democrat and
Rrgitfer heaped on tbe Lads of certain
Democrats for Laving on . certain occa
ions supported certain Republicans It
seems strange that the master of that
journal, immediately on the heels of such
an article, should go on a pilgrimage of
one hundred miles so as to get the lead
at the introduction of an old Republican,
whose advocate in Li own way" he
now too is. "People who live in glass
I houses," and so fotth.
The train came in at the time designa-
i ted and pacsed the crossing at the Pat
terson house, so that the rear end of the
car was about opposite the telrgtsuh of
(ice. Dr. Crawford and Mr J-diu Gray
bill aPDeared on tbe platform with and
introduced Mr. Greeley to the largest
! crowd of men, women and children, of
all ages, that had greeted the gentleman
i on the ' circle,'' between this poiut and
j Philadelphia, excepting Uarrisburg and
! Mr. Greeley stepped out and rested bis
right hand on the railing around the
! platform of the car and delivered a short
: speech. He declared himself no orator
! and no mendicant or beggar for the votes
of the people for President. If the peo
pic thought that the iutereits of the coun
try will be better promoted by the elec
lion of another, they should act accord
ingly at the polls. 'A by stander"
quietly remaiked to a friend, "If Greeley
is not begging votes why does he swing
around the circle 1" The answer was
caught up and lost in the music of the
band that was let loose on the cotnple
lion of the speech. Jiir. Greeley is a
well preserved man, of 61 years, stand
ing nearly if not quite six feet high, and
of rotund form. His hair is long, thin
and while. His face that evening, in the
glare of railroad lamps, seemed of a
milky paleness and was cleanly shaven.
A frill of white whiskeis. however, stand
out prominently from under bis chin and
extend from the lower point of one ear
to the lower point of the other, complete
ly covering the glands of the throat.
Ilia eyes, under glasses, seemed luster
less and his face, while delivering tbe
speech, was so evenly set that it would
indeed have required tbe most astute
physiognomist to have even ventured a
guess as to the feelings and mental bent
of the speaker, just then. Some of the
spectators compared Lis face in exprcs
Hon to that of a big baby. It did not
so appear to lis Our connubial relation
ehjp has been such that for the eight
years past a baby has been a fixture in
our bouse, and their manifold expres
sions are among the every day living
pictures among which we live and move,
and we must confess that among the al
most innumerable phases of physiogno
my that they manifest, none have im
pressed us with a resemblauce to the ex
pn eeinn that Greeley wore, "ten li He
ll vt-ied himself at the station on the eve
J ning iu question. You look iuto Mr.
j Greeley's facn aud you can no more tell
! what is to come than if you look on the
! lids of a sealed book to read its contents
lie was clothed ia a suit of black broad
cloth aud had his feet encased iu a pair
of roomy shoes, aud on Lis Lands he
wo;e a pair of brown cotton gloves. Of
course he would not be Grec ley without
the white felt hat. While speaking he
held it in his left band The inevitable
white coat was not about, it lay on a
seat iu the car while be spoke so we
were informed by a gentleman who ac
companied him to Lewiatown. That was
meeting No. 1. The wings of the De
mocracy were a unit in that homage.
Meeting No. 2,
was held on the following evening
Thursday evening at the Court House,
by the Ring Democrats. George Jacobs
presided. The speaker was a young man,
of slender form, and probably five feet
ten inches in height. His face wore tbe
expression opposite to that of the "child
like and bland," and yon instinctively
felt that in all probability its owner could
quite as readily lend a band iu tearing
np a pavement and pitching brick-bats at
the heads of his opponents as those
skilled at that bueiuess. Spates was this
gentleman's name ; he was from Balti
more Li is speech, with one or two ex
ceptions, consisted in a reproduction of
Democratic charges. He blundered fear
fully on the Alabama claims question
He denounced Grant for ever Laving al
lowed the question of consequential dam
ages to have been brought up, when the
fact is clear to all the reading world that
Charles Sumner is the father of that
doctrine. He thought no lawyer of any
standing would for a moment Lave thought
of presenting such a question ; but he did
not comprehend that he was pounding
the new ally of tha Democracy Mr.
Sumner by so talking. The impracti
cability of Charles Sumner on this poiut
was the chief reason of Lis removal from
the chairmanship of the Committee on
Foreign Affairs. The speaker said noth
ing about that. Perhaps he did not
know it, for he seemed to be entirely
ignorant of the fact that the question in
dispute between the two countries had
been settled, and that this country is to
get between 515,000 000 and $16 000,
000 damages. He had been so absorbed
in running around the country delivering
set speeches, that he missed-this, one of
tbe greatest events of the age. He dwelt
on Spanish atrocity, and cited the case
of Dr. Houard. This was a difficult case
to reach, but when the grievance of the
doctor was clearly set before the Govern
ment, it was not long in procuring Lis
release. That case has no foundation ;
but no matter it will do for Democratic
orators to feed their brethren on. He
attempted to criticise a number of the
resolutions of ihe National Republican
Platform. The fifth was a favorite oue ;
it expresses opposition to the "further
grants of pnblic lands to corporations or
railroads " He charged the Republican
party with having granted large tracts of
land to railroad corporations That was
true. He thought it an inconsistency
now for them to say that there should be
no more grants There must be a limit
to everything He would be considered
a queer man who now, since the comple
tion of the railroad through to California,
would declare that the grants conferred
on that company were wrong and of a
general injury ; yet it would not do to
give all of the public domain away. It
seem just as the proper course, to grant
as much as will secure permanently such
improvements as will open the country to
easy emig ation to settlers, and extend to"
them the means of acquit ing cheap lands,
and through routes to get at them. All
this the Republican parly ha done.. It
has granted lauds to several through
routes, aud says no more shall be granted.
It has provided a homestead law, where
by any man who derires may go west on
to the public lands and take up 1G0 acres
of land and live on it and improve it five
years, aud it will be his, with only the
c.ist of survey and tbe making out of the
proper papers, which in all does not
amount to $40 And in the case of sol
diers, the time that tbey served in the
army will be deducted from tho five years
Those who served four years will be re
quired to live on the land only one year,
and those who served three years, will
bo required to live on the land ouly two
The 16th resolution, " relative to the
restoration of American commerce aud
shipbuilding," was another on which he
dwelt at considerable length. He de.
plored the loss of Amcricau commerce.
All Democrats on the stump do. In so
doing they unwittily denounce and do
plore the rebellious conduct of their
Democratic brethren of the South. They
are the peop!c, with the aid of the Eng
lish fitted-out privateer, that drove our
commerce from the seas. England, for
her share of the w oik, has just been con
detuned by the Geneva board of arbita
tors, and sentenced to pay $15,500,000
The Sonth has not been asked to pay
her share of the damages.
Mki.ti.xg No 3,
on Friday night, was held under the au
spices of the anti ring Democrats, at the
Court House. The room was full E. S.
Doty, Esq., presided. Ou taking the
chair he delivered a speech. He is an
able man, an able speaker, and if he had
thrust himself forward and used the nsual
machinery of unsciupulous politicians,
be would occupy oue of the most prom
inent places among the Democrats of this
State, and be a great leader in the Couu
cils of the Democracy of the nation He
believed that the questions at issue aie
Krtm. m c I,.,-, c clianged
places that is all. Greeley is now the
rrpu-seutative of the Democracy, Grant
the representative of the Republicans.
Civil reform is nn old question ; it was a
question m the days of the Whig party.
It is now being revived. He favored it,
in the county aud elsewhere. Mr Duty's
speech was a good Democratic speech ;
but it savored too strongly of Judge
Black's political notions. It will never
do to put the representa:ives of such po
litical notions at the head of the State
and National Government.
Mr. J. McClure, of llarrisburg, was
the first regular speaker. He is a large
fine looking mm. but the general expres
sion of his face is obscured by a Luge
beard. He opened wild some embarrass
ment, doubtless occasioned by Mr. Doty's
intimation that the whole movement
meant Democracy, and that the new com
bination was only a menus to tho end.
He glided lightly over the geueial poli
tics, aud took up Mr. Allen, the Republi
can candidate for Auditor General. He
denounced his political course, ai d by
insinuation assailed his private character,
and turning to tbe ladies with a emers
ing expression about the eyes, he said it.
would bring the blush to fair cheeks to
tell what he knew. If his conduct was
until to tell in the presence of ladies, it
was unfit to refer to. That is unfair cam
paigning. The insinuations were coarse
and not at all becoming of men of less
pretensions than McClure. But all this
was but a preliminary to the great bur
den of Lis speech, namely, an effort to
connect Hartranft with the Evans swin
dle. He charged Hartranft with crimi
nal negligence, for not reporting the con
dition of the claims that Evans, as the
Governor's agent, was to adjust between
the State and the general government.
He treated the question as a plain quea
tion of auditing. There was not a law
yer that heard him but who knew better.
They all knew that an account between
the State amLgeneral government u quite
different from oue between the State and
its subjects. It was not a case between
the Auditor General aud the United
States ; it was a case between the .State
and the United States. The Governor,
or his authorized agent, was to adjust the
case and settle with the State Treasurer.
Evans was the agent. Tho proper set
tlement was not made. The case .lay
dead until accidentally discovered, when
a suit was instituted by the State Trea
surer to recover the money from Evans.
Mr McClure would find some difficulty
in getting a lawyer of standing as a law
yer to declare that it belonged to the reg j
ular routine duty of the Auditor General
to take any notice of the accounts be
tween the State and the United States
when. tbey bad not been formally .settled
He talked about the seven thousand dol
lars that Hartranft borrowed from Evans.
It was all guess work. De could chow
nothing definite. Tbey were all empty
charges, without any evidence such as a
lawyer would take into court to sustain
himself in a ease. There ia nothing to
show that it was any "other than a bor
rowed fund. McClure thought the paper
was insecure. Many of our readers can
recollect where money transactions were
made, involving considerable amounts of
money, in which not a scrape of a pen
existed to show the transaction The
failure to have the paper formally drawn
A.m not nrovn that there was anything
wrong about it. We present here in this
connection a few of the testimonials as to
General llartrauft's integrity :
Judge Pearson, of llarrisburg. one of
the purest and oldest magistrates in this
Slate, and a man who has had unparal
leled opportunities for ohservinsi General
llartrauft's official character, says of him :
"Ue is a vigilant, honest and correct offi
cer." Hon. Benjamin Harris Brewster,
late Attorney-General of the State and
during Lis tenure of that position neces
sarily in close aud constant contact wilh
General Hartranft, bears this eloquent
testimony : "If I had not a firm con
viction, from my own personal kuowledge
of the man, from my knowledge of his
official character, a kuowledge of bis ca
reer when I. myself, held the closest of
ficial relations with Lim if I Lad not a
conviction of his integrity, the purity of
his character and the prompt intelligence
of bis mind I would not stand bere this
night. I come bere to testify from per
sonal knowledge of the mau and his
character. It is kuown to all of you
that some six years ago I was the Attorney-General
of this Commonwealth.
When I went to llarrisburg I Lad no
knowledge of general acquaintance with
General Hartranft, but I was obliged, as
Attorney General, to have official inter
course witb him, and from that day down
to the present time I Lave looked npon
Lim with respect and admiration as a
tried and faithful public officer.
They charge General Hartrauft with
using the pnblic funds for his own per
sonal ad van (ago. He cannot do so. He
can uo more meddle wilh the public funds
of Pennsylvania the moneys that are
in the State Treasury than I can med
dle with the money that is in your pock
ets, and they who say otherwise know
that they utter what is false.
President F. B. Gowen, of the Read
ing railroad Company, a decided Demo
crat, aud of course well informed man
npon all subjects connected with rail
roads, says : "Two things I know. Oue
is that all men must (lie, The other, that
so long as my friend General Hartrauft
is Auditor-General, corporations must
pay their taxes."
Mr. J Ewing. of llarrisburg, next
addressed the meeting. - At a venture it
may be said that he stands about 5 feet
8 inches high, aud in person is thaped
like nice beer barrel. II is face was
cleauly shaven, except a brigandish look
ing mustache. In an inimitably humor
ous tnanuer he rehearsed the stale denun
ciations against the Republican party.
His talk brought out the hughter, for he
is a comic actor. Ilia earnest efforts were
ludicrous ; he was made by nature for
fun. He would be a valuable acquisi
tion to a circus company as a clown, or
be might become famous as a comediau.
A Democratic Meeting.
The Demo-rnt and Ri-giater, of the
IStii inst., devotes almost two columns
to a notice of a meeting held in Patter-
: son, on ihe evening of the 13th inst.,
under Democratic auspices. The meet
ing was called by T. li. Coder, who
.styles himself Chairman of the County
Committee, and was addressed by E. S.
Doty, Esq. and E. D. Parker, Esq
1 his the Junior of the Democrat and
Iirgu'er did not like, as he claimed to
be tbe Cha;rman, and to have the sole
right to say who shall speak at the
meetings and who shall expound the
principles of the Democratic party to the
people. It was an infringement upon
his rights, an interference wilh Lis pre
rogatives as the King says an nnpre
cedented thing in the history of the par
ty lie is not going to submit tamely to
such an outrage, but is determined to
laah these recalcitrant fellows thorough
ly. They Lad uo business to talk about
reform; to' tell the people Low the tax
es paid by them in Juniata county are
squandered ; to tell them how much was
paid for public printing ; how mnch wa
needlessly paid for salary of Clerk and
County Treasurer; nor had tLey any
right to say oi.e word about "fox scalps,"
not at all. This is no part of the Demo
cratic creed, no matter Low much they
steal out of the county Treasury, blame
the high taxes on tbe Administration and
denounce the Government. That is what
Mrywant; but the ipealert thonght re
form ought to begin at home that the
County Commissioners' office needs some
attention ; that the bills paid for county
printing need revision. That was what
disturbed the Democrat ami Rrgisler.
It grows fearful and snarls like a whip
ped spaniel. There is trouble in the
camp aud Amos knows it as well es does
his master. He trembles and his master
quakes. Amos growls and Lis master
sucks his thumb iu silence. Now, with
this domestic unpleasantness we have
nothiug to Ho ; it is a family quarrel,
and we have no business to meddle
with it, nor are we particularly disposed
to do so. further than the faithful per
formance of the duty of a public jour
nalist requires. But the Simia who
prrten tt to run the Democrat and
Rrgitter wants somebody's cat to pull
out Lis roasted chestnuts, and therefore
charges those independent Democrats,
who will not allow their fingers to be
used to haul bis roasted nuts out of the
coals, with bargaining with certain Re
publicans for the overthrow of the Dem
cratic party, and the defeat of the ticket
put up by Ike master. Why are Repub
licans to. be brought into Ibis I nTj
not fight it out among themselves t The
reason 's plain. The would be or-ran
of the Republican parly is in league
with them. They expect to help elect
some of the master's ticket and blame it
on honest Republicans, who vote the
whole ticket, and in order to screen their
guilty heads, procure the services of
the ring o-gnn.
