An immense meeting was held in
Thiladclphia on Thursday evening
last in pursuance of a call issued by
several hundred of the leading and
most influential merchants and bank
ers of that city. The call published
by these gentlemen set forth that
" We have faith and confidence in the
ability, integrity and honesty of Gen.
John F. Hartraxft, and believe
that his election w ill be for the best
interests of Pennsylvania" and there
fore invite the people to assemble to
take measures to secure his success.
In connection with the proceedings
the city papers publish the following
letter from that eminent merchant and
gentleman George H. Stuart :
" Philadelphia, Sept 23, 1872
Edilot Evening Bulletin : I observe
bv the morninr papers a call for a
meeting of "Business Men"' who arc
favorable to the election of General
Hartranft I regret that I have not
had the opportunity of signing it, and,
if not too late, will be glad to have
vou add my name to your list.
" After a thorough "investigation of
the case. I have been convinced that
the charges against General Hartranft
are totally unfounded, ana that it is
the dutv of every loyal citizen and
friend of General Grant and his Ad
ministration, to support General Hart
ranft as Governor of this State."
" Yours, respectfully,
"Geo. II. Stuart."

Rememdfb that the repeal of the
state tax on real estate was a practi
cal relief that camo instantly home to
every owner ol a house or farm in
the commonwealth. It was recom
mended by General Jons F. Hart
ranft, Auditor General of the State;
and not content with advocating a
measure of general utility that, be
cause it had no particular body of ad
vocates, had been neglected by his
predecessors. General Hartranft
personally urged the wisdom of his
policy upon the Legislature. He did
so as a matter of expedient legisla
tion for the whole state, and with
such ability that his recommendation
was adopted. He was the first in his
office who worked to repeal the spe
cific tax levy. For such action that
benefitted every one but himself, he
is the creditor of every taxpayer. Is
there anything in Bickai.ew's record,
on etato politics, at all comparable
with this ?
Republicans of Somerset county
the preliminary work of the canvass
is now nearly over, and it is time for
individual exertion. There is scarce
ly one of you who cannot make, or
save a vote for the party if you will.
Let every man feel that it is his duty
to be at the polls early on the 8th day
of October, and to see that his neigh
bor is there. Vote early, and then
devote yourself to getting out and vot
ing, every Republican in your district
In not a single township of the coun
ty lias our full vote been polled nincc
the war. This was not because of
disaffection, but simply through care
lessness caused by a full assurance of
victory. Now, it is important that ev
ery vote should be polled. Traitors
and apostates in our ranks have shook
hands with our ancient foes, and un
tier the shallow pretext of reforming
the partv, are laboring for its over
throw. Some good men, blinded by
their own egotism, and mislead by
their ambition have deserted our ranks,
but a vast proportion of the recalci
trants v crc mere bummers, and camp-
followers who preyed upon the party,
and subsisted upon their filchings.
These men good, bad, and indifferent,
all combined cannot carry from our
ranks as many voters in the State, as
we yearly fail to poll through inat
tention and want of proper activity.
A full turn out will show no appreci
able loss in our ranks. Like an ad
vancing column, the enemy's pickets
may bring down an occasional man,
but our line closes up and we go for
ward to certain victory, scarcely not
ing the life of those who have fallen
by the way. We want a full vote, to
prove to these bolters their utter in
significance as men, when weighed In
the balance against principles. Penn
sylvania is the battle field of the cam
paign, and her vote on Tuesday next
will determine in advance the result
if the Presidential coqtest
The late elections have broken
the backbone of Greeleyism through
out the country, and the sole remain
ing hope of the Democratic party and
its Liberal allies, is to carry Pennsyl
vania. If they can beat Hartranft
next week, they hope to carry the
State for Greelet in November, and
"Anything to beat Habtranft" is
now their battle cry. Never in all
history has any candidate been so
vilely, so monstrously slandered, with
out the shadow of cause, but solely
that by his destruction Greelet
might succeed. But the game will
not win ; Hartranft will be elected as
surely as he Uvea until the Sth day of
October. Intelligent Republicans all
over the State scout the lies of the
thieves, forgerers, and villains who
have assaulted his integrity, and will
work only the more tenaciously to
vindicate his fame by his triumphant
election Republicans of Somerset
county we call upon every man of you
to do your share of the good work.
Andrew G. Curtin, under the
manipulation of Alex McClure, has
written a letter announcing that he
has gone over to the enemy and will
vote for Buckalew. This is no sur
prise to us. We have known since
the day of the passage of the ' bill
commuting the tonnage tax," that
McClure owned Curtin and -yielded
him at his will, and when the question
was first mooted as to where Cubtin
would stand in this contest
we proclaimed in these columns that
McClure carried him in his breeches
pocket, and the result proves that we
were not mistaken. It is but the
loss of a singleVoter, by suicide; Cur- j
tain will find as Sumner did, that he
will sink into utter oblivion. When a
man plays false to principles, and dc-st-rU
the party that made him, be be
comes an object of disgust and scorn,
harmless for good or evil.
The people of this county are just
on the eve of realizing the hopes of
long years, in the development of
their coal and iron ores. Railroads
have been built and are building, and
others arc contemplated in the near
future, for the purpose of reaching our
coal and iron fields. Our poy ulation and
wealth ere increasing, our mines are
commencing to be worked, and every
thing looks fair for our future prosper
ity. This is the result of Protection
to American industry, whereby skilled
labor receives remunerative wages,
and in return demands the product of
the mines for its consumption. The

During the progress of the war of
the rebellion, Mr. Justice Thompson
of the Supreme Court of this State,
now a candidute for re-election, deci
ded that the act of Congress provid
ing for the forcible enrollment of
troops was unconstitutional ; that the
act of the Legislature authorizing
bounties to volunteers was unconsti
tutional, and tried to make every
measure needed for putting down the
rebellion unconstitutional. The effect
of this rulinar would have been to
have made the rebellion against the
country and its Constitution constitu
tional and valid by preventing a sin
gle measure in defence. The consti
tution and laws of other States are
very similar to those of Pennsylvania
upon these points, but the Judges of
Massachusetts and Ohio did not find
the same acts unconstitutional when
they were indispensable to save the
TnE most amusingly impudent
thing we have seen for a long time,
is Alex. Coffroth's spread-eagle
hand bills, announcing that Andrew
G. Curtin, Tom Marshall and
Alex McClure will address a Dem
ocratic meeting at Dale City, on the
2d inst Coffrotii knew very well
that not one of those speakers would
be present, but with the hope that he
could then get together a crowd that
would be compelled to listen to him,
he put forth the ' flaunting lie."
This buncomb announcement is on a
par with similar announcements made
throughout the county that a number
of ' leading" Republicans in this place
were for Greelet, and opposed to
Hartranft and Allen.

certainty of success, to redeem their

active and useful part, entrusting his

Bellefonte, Sept 25. Editor of
the Evening liulletin : A Republi
can mass-meeting was held in this
town on Tuesday evening last, Sep
tember -24. Over three hundred
Wide-awakes paraded the streets.
Generals C. E. Carr and Lemuel
Todd were the speakers from abroad.
While Gen. Todd was speaking, pos
itive knowledge was received or
Governor A. G. Curtin's acceptance
of the Liberal nomination and his de
claration for Buckalew. When the
speaker concluded, Col. W. W. Brown
editor of the Bellefonte Republican,
a prominent politician and popular
stump speaker, was loudly called for.
A letter had just been read from Hon.
Samuel Linn, late President Judgo of
the district, denying the slander that
he had declared for Buckalew, and
when Col. Brown came to the plat
form he was loudly importuned to
refer to Curtin's actions. After re
ferring briefly to some of the issues
at stake in the campaign, Col. Brown
spoke as follows : "I am proud to
sec so many of Centre county's
voters here to-night here, where we
twice met to ratify the nomination of
our own fellow-townsman for Gover
nor of this great Commonwealth.
Here we met and planned and work
ed for his success. Here we celebra
ted the victory of our party in his
election the party that always stood
by him, and made him what he in
the party that gave him fame and
wealth. But I am here to 6ay to
night that Andrew Gregg Curtin,
our Andt, our boyhood's friend, our
townsman, our great War Governor,
has sold himself to our enemy, has
nullified the principles he was once so
proud to declare, sundered the tics of
a life-long friendship, and has gone,
begging to the Mongrel party for of
fice. Alexander McClure carries
him in his breeches' pocket ! And I
say here to-night say it reluctantly
and with tears in my eyes, that in
this act Andrew G. Curtin has
damned, yes, doubly damned the hon
orable record which the Republican
party gave him. Applause. And
let the memory of him who has thus
betrayed and basely insulted the
party that gave him place and power
be hereafter and forever damned,
damned, damned!" Immense ap
plause. Col. Brown Bcemed to express the
sentiments of every Republican in
the audience. Curtin's brothers
and other relatives are indignant at
his course, but they say not one of
their name will vote with him. His
influence will amount to simply
nothing in this county on the day of
Sept 25, 18T2.

In consequence of the death of Dr.
Stanton after his election last fall as
Auditor General, a vacancy would
have occurred in the office on the ex
piration of General Hartranft's term,
which it was necessary should be
filled. The people could not elect an
other officer In-fore the term would
expire, and there was some discussion
about the Governor's power and
right to ujipoint a person to fill the
vaeauoy. A proposition was offered
which seemed to meet everybody's
approval, to continue Gen. Hartranft
in office until tho next election. On
the 18th of March I called up a reso
lution which had been offered for that
end. There was some doubt whether
Governor Geary or the Legislature
should appoint, and there was some
debate on the resolution. Some
prominent Democrats made remarks
on it. Remember that at this time
these charges against Hartranft had
been made. There i3 no charge now
brought agaiust him that was not
well understood at that time. Yet
upon this question of continuing hinij
in ofhec every single Democrat in the
Senate of Pennsylvania voted aye.
Senator Dill said he thought .it wan
proper to vote for that bill, and every
Democrat did vote for it. I submit
to you voters of Tioga county, who
are to be so soon called upon to say
whether this gallant soldier and
faithful officer shall be Governor of
the Commonwealth, if within the
range of your political experience
there has ever come to your knowl
edge a case where a man holding for
six years an office likely to call down
on him the maledictions of the pow
erful has been so triumphantly en
dorsed, sustained and vindicated as
has John F. Hartranft. I predict
that when, on the second Tuesday of
next January, he takes his seat as
Governor of this grand old Common
wealth, the people of the whole State
will rest secure that their financial
policy and material prosperty will be
as safe under his care as Governor as
they have been under his control in a
subordinate capacity. Durning his

Philadelphia, September 27.
Governor Geary to-day pardoned the
banker, Charles T. Yerkes, Jr.,
and City Treasurer Joseph Marcer,
confined in the Eastern Penitentiary.
The pardons were delivered by the
Governor's private secretary.
One of the first things that Yerkes
did after being liberated, was to make
afull vindication of Hartranft from
all charges made by the Paine-Evans-Forney
clique. He made a sworn
statement before Mayor Stokely, es
tablishing First That the affidavits photo
graphed and sent broadcast over the
State purporting to be made by him
before Alderman Dougherty were
forgeries ; that he never made or
Second That the account of
Hartranft with him was a perfectly
legitimate account, having no connec
tion whatever with the funds of the
State, and that in no way, shape or
form did Hartranft through him
derive any use, benefit or advantage
of any State funds.
Third That Dr. Faine, represent
ing himself as, an attorney of one of
the creditors, obtained access to
Yerkes' office and purloined there
from his private papers, among them
some letters of Hartranft's, which
have been used to give credence to
the false charges circulated.
Yerkes' statement is supported by
other strong evidence.

Because he has no sympathy with
the pernicious doctrines of the State
rights school of politics, and would
not array Pennsylvania against the
National Government, as his oppo

Because he is friendly to all well
regulated corporations for the devel
opment of the resources of the State,
and would favor an intelligent system
of State banks, as well as a well or
ganized insuraace system, and ample
facilities for the creation of railroads,
and the proggrcss of externel and in
ternal commerce, while his opponent
represents the narrow-minded preju
dices against corporations that have
marked the whole career of the Demo
cratic party, of which he has been a

Sun publishes the details of an affrav
at Hunterton, New Jersey. One
hundred and fifty blacks, mostly from
irginia, and over three hundred
whites, were at work on a tunnel on
the new railway from Perth Aiuboy
to the coal mines. Saturday night
the party of whites, who had been
drinking, assailed the party of neg
roes, who had been out serenading,
and were repulsed.
They procured reinforcements and
resumed the attack, only to be repuls
ed the second time. About midnight
the whites rallied in considerable
numbers and attacked the negroes
and burned their buildings. Both
sides were armed with pickaxes and
other implements. Charles Coll,
white laborer was killed during the
fight. The overseer quelled the riot,
but most of the negroes fled in terror.
The whites then, to seek vengeance
for the death of one or their number,
made an organized attack on the neg
roes, and butchered three of them in a
most horrible manner.

CuiCAfio, September 24. Last
night about half-past eleven o'clock,
James Mc Williams and M. A. Moore,
two compositors employed in the
Times office, were walking along
Clinton street, near Adams, when
their attention was attracted by one
of four men, sitting on a fence in front
of a house, falling backward off the
fence. The young men crossed the
street to ascertain the trouble, and
after exchanging a few words with
the four men, started on their way np
street. They had only gone a few
steps when one of the men drew a
pistol and fired at them, the shot tak
ing effect in McWilliams' head. He
never spoke afterwards, and died in a
few minutes. The assassin and com-
E anions ran off, and up to an early

By four o'clock the main or old
portion of the building was complete

cept the walls, some of which have
already fallen. There were about six
hundred inmates in the building at
the time of the fire, all of whom are
said to be safe. A number of these
have escaped and are now at large.
All those who could be secured were
locked up in churches and other
places in Xewbtirg until better accom

now being done by placing as mani

Casualties are confined to attaches
of the asylum and citizens of New-
burg. Miss Walker, seamstress of
the institution, was roasted alive al
most within reach of friends who
could render her no assistance on ac
count of the heat and want of proper
facilities. Benj. Burgess, who went
into the building to bring out a rela
tive, has not been heard of, but it is
hoped he is still safe. A boy, name
unknown, had his leg broken and was
otherwise injured. He will probably
die: Several others were badly
burned. It is believed three or four
are lying in the debris, which is fif
teen feet deep, and it will require
time to get the bodies out, if any.
The extreme east and west wings
of tho asylum are not entirely des
troyed, the walls being in good con
dition. They can and will be built
speedily. The culinary department,
mostly new, arc not damaged. The
loss is not known, but will approxi
mate to three hundred and fifty
thousand dollars. There is said to
be no insurance. .

At 4 p. m. yesterday Gen. Allen,
our candidate for Auditor General,
while stepping on the cars at the de
pot to go to his home in Warren,
missed his footing, on account of the
pressure of the crowd on the plat
form, and fell under. One of his
feet was crushed, but how badly we
could not learn.
The General was taken to a private
house, where be received surgical at
tendance. He left for home on the
p. M. train, in care of a number of
friends. We trust the injury may
not be serious, though it will proba
bly keep him on crutches for some
time, as his services are too valuable
in the campaign for him to be cooped
up t home. Ilia many warm friends
will not permit his interests to suf
fer while he is temporarily a prisoner
at his residence.
Yesterday morning a fire broke out
in Monongahela City, which sproved
to be the most disastrous conflagra

the citizens and firemen such would
undoubtedly have been the result
