Wednesday Morning. October 9,1872.
For President of the United States.
?OH4CB GIIBELKY, or New York.
B. GRATZ BROWN, of JHleaoarl.
' TVu?it tu? White People Ought to Do.
Inasmuch as there has been no Con
.eervativo Convention in tHe State, and
.aa -authoritative mandate from any
cooroo by which to regulate the vote of
.the white people of the Stnte iu ?he
?afootious next Wednesday, it is left to
the press to advise such a course as eaoh
.j onrnal may honestly believe to be best.
JLa fdr ourselves, we have very earnest
?convictions in favor of the -Bolters'
dieltet We favor it, in the first plaoj,
because the character of the persons who
composa the ticket ia fur superior to those
of the regular ticket. There is.no man
..upon the Bolters'ticket who has defraud?
ed ?he State in any way. This should not
?count for much in a normal condition of
affair^ bu ; it is a good recommendation
-when we consider the oharaoter of the
.opposition. There is not a man, farther,
.-rjpan the Bolters' tioket against whom
- aay.credible charge of any disparaging
> nature .whatever has been made. They
aro thotvery best men of the Republican
party ia (the State. We do not caro to
..run.a comparison between the respective
. candidates, for we know that our people
are not -divided in opinion npon this
.?subject, and comparisons in themselves
-iiro odious or odorous.
Wo favor the Bolters' movement, in
t the aceead ?dace, because it is a protest,
-and; the only one we have, against the
. infanPQS regime of which the M us ey it ea
<.? sepreeent the coutiunanoe. We deem it
. a-dnty 4o support all ?fforts for reform
i upon principia whenever reform is ne
?aessary. It ie better to have a change,
.?vea. ii that .change be not altogether
.satisfactory. We regard it as a step
.piqg-stone to better things: Nothing
'Will ?edd so muoh to release ithe colored
: people from tb? control of leagues and
? from tho blind obedience which most of
4hem render to their corrupt leaders,
ihan tho success of the Bolters' move
?meat. In two years more, they would
tbe ?prepared to act independently, and
tte give their support, like all good citi
^xenoehould, to the best candidates who
.saay-offer for office.
\In the last place, it is very evident
'that tho Tomlinson tioket can be eleoted,
if the white people will generally
woift it. The question practically
crests with us OB to who shall be
.-our next Governor. We can save
(the State from Moses if we will, and se
.cure Bach an influenae ia the administra?
tion of the State Government that can?
not fail to be used to advantage. If
Tomlinson is eleoted mainly or in great
'patt by the votes of the intelligent
honest white people of the State, he
?will be put upon his mettle to prove to
.us and to' the world that our preference
bas not been misdirected. A moral
pressure would be brought to bear upon
bim. which he could not, if he would, re?
ni?t; and which would lead him, in all
-questions affecting the interests of the
?entire people, to give ear to and be ia
/flnenoed by the wishes and advice of our
.best and ablest men. There is certainly
.nothing to be gained by inaction and in?
diff?rence. If our people think there is
.no choice between Tomlinson and Moses,
-thou they are utterly inexcusable for not
.tuging the nomination of some third and
better mau. As no such nomination bas
.been made, and none seems generally de
?siced, we are impressed with the belief
.that a large majority will support Tutu
-.- -? c .
'Whoa Mr. Greeley wau iu Louisville,
'ho thought it worth while to refute the
vllidical falsehood, so much insisted apon
-by Radical orators, that if tbe Liberals
-auodeed at the next election, the colored
population will be remanded back into
?lavery. The pertinacity with whiob
ffcbis lie is adhered to, and reiterated with
?what Artemus Ward would cull "dumua
4?le iteration," is only equalled by the
daspudeaoe of the assertion. And yet it
tfinds many believers among the colored
.-people, North and South. lu the North,
?ia tact, it is one of the staple subjects of
-colored Radical oratory. ' Not all the
.colored mea believe it, however. The
members of the respectable colored Con?
vention whiob recently assembled ia
/Louisville do not believe it; und if we
.may judge from the assertions of tho
-Southern papers, there are many of the
mtme class in the South whom tho shal?
low subterfuge cannot dooeive. In one
?ward in Richmond, Va., there ia a co?
lored Greeley club numbering 433 mom
vbers. This looks as if tbe efforts of the
honest'colored. men were not in vain,
and augurs well for tho future of tho
caco, ip spite of the party that would
-keep them in the slavery of ignorance. (.,
'Ginee the un ti moly death of tbe True
tlhmo?rai, the Louisville Journal says:
"Oolouel Blanton Duncan spends his
?time ia tryipgfo employ Stanley to Hod

Thc Constitutional AAtndmenl.
We desire to call attention again t > tho
amendment to the S ate Constitution,
prohibiting any further increase of the
public debt, except npon a two-thirds
voto of the people. The election is just
now one week off, and it is important
that the people should have light on this
sabjeot. Messrs. Ooibin and Gary have
answered for the Bolter's party. They
are in favor of the amendment, and will
have all their tickets printed: in the
affirmative. What have the Mosoyites
to say, and what have our candidates for
tho Legislature from this County to tell
the people as to their, views.on this sub?
ject? Thia is, in oar. judgment, a matter
of mach moment, and we hope the peo?
ple in every -County in the State will
take Immediate steps to ascertain the
views of the , various candidates, and to
bind them, if possible, to the support of.
the amendment at the next se6Bion of
the L?gislature. There is but little rea?
son to doubt that every oitizen in the
State, blnok and white, except a very
few who may be influenced by the hope
of gain in farther bond speculations,
favors tho adoption,of the amendment,
and'will so vote, if bo ia folly, apprised
o' the necessity. If the' power of is?
suing honda, or of. bunion ju g tho Sin to
with debt in any form, be taken'(rom

penditures of government bo rcduoed to

"Ot all the . merchants here who are
now as active and prosperous as ever,

Gregg's Hall was burned, and were,
therefore, compelled to commence busi?

finest paintings in oil and water colors ia
the State, and were the first artists South
to introduce the 'Rembrandt' photo?

finer paintings becoming greater, they
have erected a splendid art gallery, (ad?
joining the Bank and Trust Company,)
which they now occupy. The building
is 130 feet deep. The front is of gal?
vanized iron, and painted to imitate
marble, which pr?sents an elegant and
attractive appearance. Ascending an
easy stairway to the first floor above, the
visitor enters the reception room, fifty
feet in length, the walls of whioh are of
a subdued tint, and almost completely
covered with paintings of rare value and

the Treasary Richardson, giving iufor

a digest of the various sots in relation tc
them, he says, after quoting the law ol
February, 1868, for a reduction of thc

the limit below whioh the circulation o:

reserve of $14,000,000 is loft to the dis

since availed himself of it to any extenl

for redemption, and were paid out c

A PariH correspondent of tho lucie

some interesting facts connected with th?
coming trial of Marshal Bazaine, who ii
to bo arraigned on the serious charge o

versions oonneoted with this case ex tau
unite in inducing the belief that thii
high officer of tho army under the ex
empire is about to bo placed iu a posi
tiou so serious as to place his life ir
jeopardy. It is stated ia Paris, among
othor things, that, crashed by the evi
dence that will be adduced, Bazaine wil
not be able to refute the charge that hi
bud received, in ample time for compli?
ance, the order of juuetion with Marsha
McMahon-an order which he elia nie
havo carried out at all hazards. Tin
bitterness that prevails iu France ugains
Bazaine and other Generals of his class
tho creatures of the empire, is due t<
tho belief-well founded on facts-tha

popular feeling is that death should bi

conclusion that stares Bazaine ia thi

AN AFRICAN EXECUTION.-The Weat
African Herald, of July 31, ?tuten that
the capital sentence passed on tho three
men who were convicted of the murder
of Lieut. Joost, a Duch officer, during
the disturbance which took plano nt El?
mina on tho 26th of last April, was car?
ried into execution on the 22d of July.
Up to noon of Saturday, the 20th, (says
the Herald,) tho majority of the people
of Elmina, including tho King and the
chiefs, could not make up their minds to
believe that the British authorities would
actually proceed to inflict the extreme
penalty of the" law upon these unhappy
and deluded wretches, and amongst
theso were many who affected to think
that the threats which had been uttered
as to the determination of the King und
people of Elmina to resist, by force of
arms, the carrying out of the sentence,
would be quite sufficient to prevent the
exeoution of the condemned.
^Notwithstanding the fact that at an
interview which tho King, chiefs and
head-men of Elmina bud with the Ad?
ministration in the Gustie, on the 19th,
und during which his Excellency in?
formed them that not only could he hold
out no hopes of reprieve or commuta?
tion of the sentence, but tho Exeniitiye
was determined to carry it out, yet hardly
any one of them could be persuaded
that the Government would not at the
hut moment alter its determination. At
7 A. M., on Monday, the 22d, the Hous
sas of the Police, to the number of 200
men, under the orders of Major Brou
nell, took up their appointed positions
in different quarters of the town, the
bridgo leading to the Castle being held
by the marines and blue-jackets of H.
M. S. Druid. At a few minutes before
8 o'clock, tho three culprits, whoso
names were Qusku Tawiah, Zowe Kes
sie, and Quam mah Foasoo, were led to
the place of execution. Two out of tho
three were terribly overcome as the fatal
moment approached, and cried like chil?
dren ; they upbraided the King of Elmina
for being the cause of their death, and
called upon him repeatedly to redeem
his promise and oomo to their rescue.
A NEW INVENTION.- David H. Ross,
formerly of our town, but now of New
York city, has inveuted and bud patent?
ed a paper match, which he will, in a
few days, introduce to the public. The
following is a description of tho match,
a sample of which be sends us:
"The paper ia twisted iuto a string
and passed through u solution which
hardens it and makes it combustible. It
?3 then passed over a reel, each revolu?
tion making two matches four and a half
inches long, which are doubled as the
sample-the ends, the open ends, are
dipped, making the match complote.
On being ignited, the ends readily sepa?
rate, and, being opened to the full
length of the string, gives you a match
which will barn Ave minutes-giving as
good a light as a cundle, and can be
made as cheap or cheaper than the ordi?
nary parlor match."
A NEW IKON SHIP.-The fleet of mer
chant-men plying between this pott aud

in Eugland, and consigned to Captain

wharf for Liverpool. The Tiber tn about
1,000 tons measurement, 225 feet long,
29 feet breadth of beam, and 20 feet
depth of hold. Her lower masts, deck
and hull are of iron, and she has wire

Tns FIRST ?HEAT?E IN NEV/ YORK..
Richard III was given, as probably the
first effort of a company of Thespians
in New York, on the 5th of March,
1750. Tho theatre which witnessed this
early performance was situated, os
shown by J. N. Ireland, in his "Records
of the New York Stage," on the EaBt
side of Nassau street, (formerly Kip
street,) between John street and Maiden
Lane. Tho performers on this occasion
weie driven from Philadelphia as a set
of "vagabonds." As early SB 1733, there
existed a "play-house" in New York,
but the legitimate drama was performed,
if at all, in a very crudo manner, the
play-bouse being used principally for
puppet show? and entertainments of like
character. It is more than probable
that the first oompany of English actors
who crossed the Atlantic, first appeared
in 1746, in Jamaica, West Indies. The
second company, as mentioned by Dun?
lap, crossed in 1752, and appeared in
Williamsburg, Virginia. These two
companies afterward united, forming
what was long known os the American
TROOPS OF AILMENT a VANQUISHED.
On account of the promptness with
which it checks the fevers generated by
unhealthy exhalations, Hostetter's Bit?
ters is considered an indispensable fami?
ly medicine on the borders of our South?
ern nud Western riverB, and in new set?
tlement?, where tho plough and the axe
aro for the first time disturbing the soli?
tudes of nature. Its reputation, how?
ever, is not confined to such localities.
Wherever the elements of disease are
rife, it is the surest safeguard of health;
wherever sickness prevails, it is effica?
cious as a remedy. Among the serious
diseases which it is guaranteed to con?
trol, are indigestion, biliousness, and all
tho minor ailments conneoted with de?
rangements of the stomach, the liver,
und the bowels, such ns heart burn, head?
ache, flatulence, costiveness, nausea,
distaste for food, languor and debility,
palpitation of the heart, trembling Of
tho hands, noises in the ears, disordered
vision, disturbed sleep, and mental in?
quietude. As these physical and mental
disturbances tend to a general failure of
all tho powers of the system, they should
be at once corrected-as they always
mav be-by a course of Hostetter'6 Sto?
mach Bitters. 06tf3
WOMAN'S FIDELITI'.-In the wars of
the petty princes of Germany, Duke
Guelf, being hard pressod by his rival,
shut himself up in Weinburg. This was
in the year 1140. After a protracted
siege, that garrison capitulated, on the
condition that all the women should bo
allowed to depart, taking with them as
much of their property as they could
carry. The terms of surrender having
been signed, the gates were opened, and
to the great surprise of the besiegers,
tho Duchess appeared, hearing her hus?
band on her shoulders, and followed by
nil the women of the city similarly laden.
Tho hill they orossed is still called Wei
bertreue, "woman's fidelity."
A COMMON EXPERIENCE.-Many ma
trous will test the force of the "o'er true
"I declare," said an old lady, revert?
ing to the promise made on her marriage
duy by her liego lord, "I shall never for?
get when Obadiah put the nuptial ring
on my finger, and said, 'With my world?
ly goods I thee endow.' He used to
keep a dry gooda store then, and I
thought ho was going to give mo all
there was in it. I was young, and did
not know till afterward that it meant
one calico gown a year."
It is told of a yonng gentleman whom a
maiden liked bat father didn't, at a
reasonable hour tho old gentleman inti?
mated that tho timo for retiring had ar?

modestly; "we have been wuiting over
au hour for you to put yourself in your
little bcd." Father retired thoughtfully.
