Mr. G. A.Crofut,N. 73, south Fourth
street, Philadelphia, is our, authorized
aSent to obtain . advertisements, subscrip
tions, and collect money for the True
Republican County Convention. -
Pursuant to notice the Republican Del
egate?, for Jefferson County, met at Kil
gore Hall, Steubenville, oa yesterday
(Tuesday) at 10 o'clock, to nominate a
ticket, to be supported by that party at
the next October election.
The meeting was called to order, by
electing Geo. K. Jenkins, President, and
appointing James D. Lad J and Jui. Craw
- The result of the deliberation of the
Convention was the election of the same
candidates, for the various offices which
were the choice of the American party,
with one single, exception that of Coro
ner. M'Q uire Doyle was the choice of the
Convention for that office, but ho has de
clined the nomination. A more intelligent,
respectable, and hannouious political Con
vention, we have not hud the pleasure to
witness in this county. The Republican
party io Jeffcrsou couuty to a man
fluudd square upon the 13th J uly platform,
with the determination to sustain every
man who was nominated by that Conven
' tion, aud thus to render old huukerdom so
lean, and unsightly on the second Tuesday
of October next, that his shadow will bluish
crimson in an attempt to follow him.

PArEB, The Postmaster General has

late discoveries of valuable mail matter
among waste paper It shall be the duty
of the Postmaster, or of one" of his assis
tants, in all cases immediately beforo the
office is swept or otherwise cleared of rub

der to guard against tho possibility of loss
of letters or other mail matter which may
have fallen on the floor, or have beeu in
termingled with such waste paper during
the transaction of business. . The obscr
TBuce of this rule is strictly enjoined upon
all postmasters, and its violation will con
stitute a grave offense. Postmasters must
be eareful to use, in mailing letters or

lers, neither, with exception of ono office,
does it say that we shall not, but rightly
leaves this matter entirely to our choice.
And if we, in the exercise of this our ina
lienable right, the right to vote for whom
we please, should see meet to elect native
oitiiens to discharge the dutied of the vari
ous offices, who has a right to complain?
Who is injured when we do s ? and who
has a right to tell us and insist that it is
anti-Republican and despotio to do so ?
Anti-Republican to vote for whom we please
because wo vote for native in preference to
adopted citizens! Tt has long been the
boast of our citizens thatnono need sub
mit to any dictation nr control and weal
ways thought and yet devoutly believe
that the very essence of Republicanism
consists in a freo and untrammeled right
to exercise our influence at and manifest
bur preference through the ballot box.
And by all Republicans the doctrine is
taught, and it is not denied by any who
claim to be such, that the will of the ma
jority, legally expressed, snail be exeou'
ted; and that all questions of national and
state policy, should be controlled by that
will. In point of numbers, the native com
pare with the adopted citizens, about as
seven to ono ; and if they, at tho ballot
box, legally elect officers of their own
couutrymcn, can they be juBtly charged
with being anti-Republican fur thus man!
festing their preference ? j
But some sny, if you refuse to vote for
men merely because they happened to be
born on t. foreign soil, you act in a pro
Pcriplive and arbitrary manner, becauso
tho mere locality of birth docs not afford
a valid objection. Then nine tenths of
our citizens, both adopted and native, al
most from the rise of this Republic to the
present time, have been prescriptive not,
indeed toward foreigners, but toward each
other, and for a less distinction than we arc
prepared to urge in the defence of our po
sition. But this cry of proscription is
shouted by men who are more prescriptive
than we are ; for they, if their plea is cor
rect, proscribe a majority of their fellow
citizens. Not an American who ioves his
birthright and has tho manliness to claim
it, can get a vote from an old fogy. But
we knoT why they set up such a cry we
hav takem tho treasury teat out of their
mouths; and farmers all know that calves
will hawi when they we.au 'em that those
that eot th most milk aud picked the least
irraes, will ma,ke ,Jie most noise, and get
the poorest. A short time ago toe tng oi
war was between iu'O democrats and whigs;
members of each positive? V refusing to vote
for any of the others, but often striving to
elect persons in their owri arty, whose el
ection by the other party weJild .'iave Deen
pronounced a disgrace to tho country. In
what light did they viow thin ppi.vtn
and how did they speak of each duber?
"I would not vote for my father if lit' was
a whig, or I could oppose my brother" at
tho polls if he was a democrat." Wo ue?
er split our ticket 'say both." "We vote
for whom we please, and have a right to
do so we aro not prescriptive, say all"
and so say we we prefer to voto for Amer
icans and have a right to do so.
But we do not refuse to voto for mcu

no practical advantages that a people kept
