11 Sll THINGS.
A beaten foe should never be al
lowed to rest, gather up its stragglers,
and reform its lines. Grant's terse
command "Push things" is as politic,
and as applicable in politics, as in
war. "Forward" is the word. In
the natural exultation over our great
victory of the 8th, we must not forget
that the decisive battle is not yet
won. After the most obstinate fight
wc have ever had, we have beaten
the enemy on his own chosen battle
field, and their shattered colums are
now on the run. Now is the time to
"push things" until we have driven
the wreck into the last ditch, and
com pellod it to lay down its arms and
surrender. Ilemember friends that
we won this last great fight by steady
work and thorough organization. So,
while you are cheering h eartily over
the result, do not neglect tj beat up
for recruits, reform your line, be
ready for the final rush in Novembe
Had the army of the Potomac been
able to follow up its victory the morn
ing after Gettysburg, the broken and
beaten columns of Lee would have
been compelled to surrender before
thev crossed the Potomac, and the
rcboll ion would have been at an end.
I5ut Meade's forces were themselves
shattered, and unable to follow up
and strike the crowning blow. Not so
with the Republican hosts in this con
flict W'c are stronger than ever, our
force has been tested, our leaders
proven, and the order rings down the
lines "Push things."
The old enemy is in front, broken
and demoralized, hundreds arc daily
straggling from his ranks, the apos
tates that reinforced him in the late
fight, have slunk away cowed
and dismaj-ed. Once more to the
breach dear friends, and a victory un
precedented in our annals will crown
It was admitted by the whole coun
try, that the result of the Octoler
election wouldvirtually decide the
Presidential contest Ohio and Indi
ana were both claimed by the opposi
tion, and the result in those States
was looked for with anxiety, but the
vote of Pennsylvania was regarded
as the test Had we lost this Stat e
the friends of Greeley would have
confidently claimed that his election
wan assured. Had we carried it by
a small vote they would still have in
sisted that it could be regaineifor
him; but our sweeping majority has
conclusively shown the country that
the National Administration is strong
er than ever in the confidence of the
lieoiile of the Kevstone State, and a
more conclusive popular verdict was
never rendered, than the one pro
nounced against Horace Greelet
and his piebald following. Beaten so
dceisivelv before the tribunal of their
own selection, the friends of Mr
Greeley have raised the crvof fraud,
and clamorously assert that the
.Judges (the people) were bought
and cheated. Of J the absurdity, as
well as feebleness of this cry any citi
zen ofihe Union can satisfy himftlf,
by examining the returns and noting
the uniformitv of the trains through
out the entire Commonwealth
Weeks before the election they began
to prepare for the result, by announ
cing that a svstem of fraud was being
organized to overwhelm the righteous
verdict of the people, and no sooner
were the large gains in Philadelphia
announced than a shout of "fraud,"
was set up by every Dem-Lib organ
in the land. But the steadv swell of
the majority trom all sections of the
State soon proved how ludicrous was
the cry, and the solid Republican
vote of Pennsylvania has satisfied the
jK-ople of the country that the reelec
tion of General Grant is already as
sured. The verdict is rendered, and
judgment has been entered thereon.
As Pennsylvania goes bo goes the
Republicans of Somerset county,
you did a glorious day's work on
Tuesday the 8th. You redeemed
your Congressional and Senatorial
districts and, you piled up a magnifi
cent majority almost t equal to the
days of "Tippecanoe and Tyler too."
But you can do better. Examine the
returns and you will find that in ev
ery township the majority might
have been and can be increased. As
the Tribune foolishly said of Gree
let the other day "We are on the
Lome stretch" By a little extra ex
ertion tee can glee Grant two tlwu
nand majority next month. What
say you 1 Bring out the laggards,
and the converts. Poll the full vote,
and now for it, we will not fall short
of two thousand majority. Pennsyl
vania intends to give seventy five
thousand majority for General Grant,
and wc can furnish our full share of
the quota if wc will. Now, for a pull,
a strong pull, and a pull altogether.
The Philadelphia Post collapsed
on Tuesday. It was a prosperous
Republican daily until Jane last,
when McClcbe bought it upas a
Greeley organ. Three months of
Greeleyism killed it

The estimation in which the two
candidates for Governor, and leading
politicians on both 6ides, are held by
their immediate neighlwrs, is forcibly
shown by the home vote of each.
Thus Montgomery County, the
"home" of Gen. Hart uanft vindi
cates him from the slanders of his
enemies, by t"rning completely
around, giving Dvckalew majority
of about 33 votes. It gave 1,084
majority for Packer, three years ago.
Charles R. Buckalew, in his own
"home" of Cclumbia county, is some
three hundred short of the usual
Bellefonte, Centre county, the
"home" of Andrew G. Cirtin, gives
Gen. Hartraxft an increased vote
of nearly two Hundred.
Philadelphia, the "home" of Forney
ana M dure, gives JIaistranft a
majority of over 20,000.
JI STH'E AT LAST.
It will be remembered that
Dechert (Dem.) was returned to
the State Senate from the 1st district,
two years ago, at a special election,
by a majority of nearly two thousand,
kuown at the time to be fraudulent,
but which the Senate refused to in
vestigate and allowed Dechert to
hold the seat At the recent election
the people of the district got a chance
at Dechert, and beat him just 3,615!
Last year, by the election of Gray
(Rep.) in the 4th district, the Senate
was again made Republican ; but this
was cured by turuing him out under
allegations of fraud and giving his
seat to Col. A. K. McClure. This
same district, which "McClire now
pretends to represent, gave over 7,000

OI R WAMIISUTOX EETTEit.
Washington, October 17, 1872.
Your correspondent has always as
serted that the change of front assu
med by the Democratic party at their
Baltimore convention was not made
in pursuance of any real change of
their pro-slavery and disloyal princi
ples proclaimed before, during aud
since the rebellion, but in fraudulent
dissimulation of their real sentiments,
for the purpose of getting office .
This, we have asserted, is especially
true of the Southern ex-rebels, who,
almost to a man, retain the same sen
timents upon which the campaign of
18C3 was prosecuted. These, how
ever, are the very men who want of
fice the worst, and who therefore cry
out loudest in favor ot tne milder
views of the Cincinnati platform, as
exposed at Baltimore.
Since the disastrous results of the
October elections have made the weak
ness of the Greeley coalition appar
ent, 6ome of the Democratic papers
both North and South, begin to disa
vow the humbug that was cooked up
at Baltimore, and are now engaged in
vomiting the crow which their heated
stomachs can not any longer retain,
and refuse to digest.
The last sample of this very natu
ral result of the bolting of food in
compatible with Southern stomachs,
is given in a recent editorial of that
unscrupulous Greeley organ, the Sa
vannah AVir. It says:
" What is to be the effect of these
elections on the Presidential canvass
a few davs will develop. It is very
possible that the loss of these States
will give a new impetus to the
"Straight-out" movement, orid that

of sustainine the Cincinnati nomi

out" ticket or take no interest in the
This confession of fraud and dis
honesty at Baltimore is called forth
by the manifest prospect of utter de-
feat under the coalition, and is only
made when there is nothing to gain
by further dissembling. Yet Greeley
and Sumner were seconded by some
of the verdant Republicans in their
assurances that the Democrats wanted
conciliation, earnestly desire pacifica
tion of the country, and would faith
fullv carry out the amendments to
the Constitution and the Reconstruc
tion laws. Gen. Hunter, Hon. Jere,
S. Black, Gov. Smvth, of Marvland,
and other of their great leaders de
nied this opeuly, aud every time a
sincere Democrat speaks upon the
subject he gives it the lie directly or
indirectly; yet despite these damning
proofs of their hypocrisy we are still

INDIANA ELECTION ANOMALY.
The Chicago Times (Democratic)
thinks there are fifty thousand Demo
cratic votes in Indiana which will le
cast for O'Connor and Adams, and
that if the coalition ticket were with
drawn, as it should be, they would
carry the electors -against Grant.
This may not lie conclusively com
puted, hut the defeat of Greeley and
Brown in that State on the present
political status by twenty thousand
majority lor urant may ocrcauny in
ferred from the Republican majorities
for Confrressmcn and the Legislature,
which latter result ensures the re-election
to the Senate of Senator Mor
ton. The election of Hendricks for
Governor is now found to be owing
to the Temperance vote in his favor,
and not, as at first supposed, solely to
his Funerior personal popularity. The
Temperance party kept their nomi
nation a secret, for if it had been gen
erally known to the Democracy their
love of spiritual power would have
leen likely to have defeated the Tem-
ncranec candidate. There is no
lonrrcr an attempt among respectable
journals to claim Indiana for Greeley

was in 18C8, under the previous ap
portionment -Many Mates have in

The Boldeat Robbery on Rrrord

Waterford, New York, October
14. Between one and four o'clock
this morning the Saratoga county
bank was the scene of the most dar
ing and outrageous robbery ever per
petrated in this vicinity. The cashier's
residence over the bank was entered
by eight masked men, and the en
tire family composed of the cashier,
Mr. Van Iloevanbaugh, his wife, and
two daughters, a young son, and a
servant girl, were bound and gagged.
Mr. an llcevanbaugb was then led
into the bank room where his captors
stopped in front of the vault door.

of vengeance upon his bead if be dis
obeyed orders, he was commanded
to unlock the vault With his arms

pretended to have forgotten the com
bination, and made numerous excuses,
but they would not hearken to him
and threatened to blow his brains out
if he did not open the doors immedi
He finally opened the doors for
them when they thoroughly ransacked
the contents. After securing a large
amount of money in bonds, etc., they
deserted, and threatening death to the
helpless cashier if he gave the alarm or
atempted pursnit, they left the build
ing with the utmost haste and secrecy.
The loss is estimated between $250,
000 and $300,000. The bank, how
ever, only loses about $10,000, the re
mainder being special deposits of
bonds, registered and unregistered,
and Railroad stocks. The thieves
may have succeeded in disposing of
the bonds. The numbers have been
obtained, but whoever purchases
them will undoubtedly lose by the
transaction. The burglars' alarm,
which connects with the counting
room at the cashier's sleeping apart
ment, was not tampered with. The
board of directors of the bank offer a
reward of $5,000 for the arrest of the
thieves and $5,000 additional for the
return of the securities.

The most forlorn man in4 Pennsyl

if he were to come out openly for

he has now received at the hands

his having secured his election by

Attempted Bank Bnrfjlary.
The night liefore last a bold but
unsuccessful attempt. was made by a
party of ruffians to rob the Lacka
wanna Yalley bank. The bank is lo
cated on tho busiest part of Lacka
wanna avenue, above Wyoming, and
just opposite the Wyoming house,
and in the second story front room
George P. Kingsbury, esq., one of the
firm of Suuderson X Co., who own
tho bank, and who is the cashier, has
a room where he lodges in single
blessedness. About eleven o'clock on
Wednesday night he came home and
on reaching: the head of tho stairs
leading to his room was assaulted by
three men, who garroled him and on
his crying murder, knocked him down
with a slung bltot or some heavy
weapon, telling him at the same time
if he made any more noise it would
be worse for him. They then hand
cuffed his hands behind him. and
taking the keys from his pockets took
him into his room, and throwing him
on the bed, proceeded in a manner
that would have dono credit to the
Spanis-h inquisition to extract from
mil the whereabouts of the bank
keys. They put a small rope around
his neck and bid him tell where the
keys were, and when he told he did
not have them, or know where thev
were, twisted the rope up almost to
the choking point and held it there
awhile. Then they demanded them
again until Mr. K. was totally ex
hausted, and they finally accepted
the truth that Mr. Renshaw, the
teller, had them. They did not give
up, however, until they had over
hauled and looked into every nook
and cranny of the room, turning
everything topsy-turvy" in doing so.
1 hey then sat Mr. Kingsbury up in
bed, gagged him, and tied his body
to the head-board and his feet to the
foot of .the beadstcad, and left him,
taking the key of the door along.
Mr. K. immediately commenced
making efforts for his release, but it
was one o'clock before he succeeded
in getting one boot off and freeing his
met, whereby he was enabled to sit
np enough to let the rope slip over
the head-board and he was free all
but the handenffs. He then man
aged to raise a window and called
several times, but was unable to at
tract attention. In about half an
hour Dr. Burns, who had been out,
came along and was hailed, and told
to procure assistance, which he did.
Mr. C. W. Roesler was got up, who
cut the handcuffs apart, and they
were afterwards taken off by Mar
shal Stevens, who found a key to fit.
Mr. Kingsbury's room when we
visited it yesterday morning presented
a very sanguinary appearance, and
there had evidently been a severe
struggle, though we should not regard
Mr. K. as a muscular man or one at
all calculated to cope with three de
termined desperadoes who evidently
would have had no hesitation in
taking his life. He is severely cut
about the head and face, and bis
wrists lacerated from the handcuffs.
The scoundrels of course made ofT
when they found their cfTort9 at rob
bery, baffled, and up to this time no
clue has been had to their identity.
This peril should prove a warning
to Mr. Kingsbury and all other elder
ly gentlemen who occupy responsible
positions, to provide themselves with
room mates with reliable lungs capa
ble of raising an alarm under similar
circumstances. Scranton Time,

Regular Rcpublleaa Ticket Elerted.
Columbia, October 1G. In the
State election . to-day for Governor,
State officers and five Congressmen,
the only decided opposition offered
by the Democrats was in the Fifth
listrict, where Hon. B. Perry, ex
Provisional Governor under J ohnson's
administration, was nominated for
Congress. It is thought that he is
elected, defeating Wallace, the pres
ent incumbent. It is gem ; lly con
ceded that the regular Republican
State ticket, with Moses for Govern
or, is elected, defeating what is known
as the bolters' ticket, with Tonilinson
as candidate for Governor.
Charleston, OctolK-r 1G. Every
thing passed off quietly at the elec
tions to-day. No conclusive returns
are in, but tho probabilities are that
Moses and the regular Republican
ticket are elected by a large majority.
Kansas City, October 16. A far
mer named Hunt with his wife and
two children, who were living on a
claim some distance from a neighbor
hood had their house built of stone
and roofed with dirt and sod, suppor
ted with timbers. One night as some
persons were returning from a dance
they found that the roof of the house
had fallen in upon the family as thev
slept in their beds. The party went
at once to relieve them and found the
mother and two children "dead and
the father so fastened and held in his
place that he was even powerless to
help himself. The roof was very
heavy and came down with crushing
force upon the inmates of the fatal
