Grand Mass Meeting!
The Republicans of Cumbria county ore
invited to meet in the Court IIousc, Ebens
burg, on Wednesday evening, September Oth,
proximo, at 74 o'clock, p. m.f to hear the is
sues iuvolved Iii tbe pending campaign dlo
cussed, fairly and impartially.. Able speakers
will be present. A brass bard and a glee
club will be in attendance. Come one and
all come for Grant, Colfax, and the Coun
try I . Alex. Kennedy,
Chairman Republican Co. Committee.
The contested election case of Robinson
(Kepub.) against Shugart (Dem.), involv
ing the right to the seat in the State Sen
ate from the 21st Senatorial district of
this State, composed of the counties of
Blair, Huntingdon, Center, Miifiiu, Ferry
and Juniata, was thoroughly ventilated by
a Senatorial investigating committee last
winter. Such a mass of fraud and cor
ruption was brought to light as to appall
honest men of all parties, resulting in the
expulsion of Shugart from his seat in dis
grace. We propose to take a look at some
of the salient points of the evidence elic
ited. Shugart's majority in the district was
22. How this majority was obtained in a
naturally Republican district is made clear
as the noonday sun by the sworn state
ments of the witnesses all Democrats, be
it remembered, and participants in the
frauds which they were obliged to expose.
A. railroad was beinr. built from Phil-
tncarnnaxiuiuj. i. man nameu j .uea-
ra, a sort of boss on the road, testified that
he was approached by Mr. Collins, con
tractor for building the road, and by fr.
Gorman, another boss, who confided to
him their intention of colonizing votes
enough in Center county to carry the elec
tion for the Democrats. In conformity
with this arrangement, about one hundred
Irishmen were gathered up in Clearfield
county and run into Center county a short
time previous to the election. These
were provided with forged naturalization
papers, procured in Luzerne county.
O'Meara swears that these naturalization
papers were soaked in coffee to give them
the appearance of age. The Irishmen
were driven to the polls on election day,
at Philipsburg, voted the Democratic tick
et straight, and almost immediately after
ward returned to Clearfield county.
Coffee as a culinary preparation is tol
erably well known. But coffee as a Dem
ocratic electioneering agent is a rather
new discjvery. Beer, ale, and whisky are
generally understood to have always been
popular in Democratic circles about elec
tion times ; but, while these have not been
superseded, it would seem that coffee has
become as powerful an auxiliary in multi
plying Democratic votes as either of the
stronger potables named. Rye is good,
but. so in this case was Rio ; and it is
probable that to the latter beverage we
owe the election Iatt fall of Sliarswood to
the Supreme. Bench. The holders of the
coffee-colored naturalization papers all vo
ted fyr him, early and often, and there
were doii,Mess coffee-colored naturalization
papers in ma:'y other counties lcidcs
O'Meara further testified that when it
was found that Robinson intended contes
ting the election, he was brib ed by one
Father Tracey, acting under instructions
from Mr. WunA. Wallace, to leave the
State, so as to prevent his becoming a wit
ness in the case. But his whereabouts
were discovered, and he was taken into
custody and required to tell what lie knew
in the premises.
The Win. A. Walhict; spoken of, who
looms up into bad eminence as- a hearty
aider and abetter, if not as the prime in
stigator, of the frauds under consideration,
was then and is now Chairman of the Dem
ocratic State Committee. He undoubtcdly
furnished the money to pay O'Meara to
leave the Statv driving a hard bargain in
the transaction. O'Meara wanted $2,000
for going away, but Wallace successfully
held that Si 00 a month for five months,
or $500, was enough for the service. Mr.
Wallace is prolific of addresses "to the
people of Pennsylvania," in all which, with
charlatanry characteristic of Democracy,
he iterates and reiterates the charge against
the Republican party of "corruption ! cor
John Casey was another witness exam
ined. He testified that he was taken to
the. polls at Philipsburg by one Mark
Leddy, another boss, where he voted the
Democratic ticket on a fraudulent natural
ization paper furnished him. . lie had not
been naturalized. The poor Irishman
never reached his home, in Clearfield coun
ty, after giving his testimony. His dead
body was found near Clearfield, lying
alongside the highway, shortly after. lie
had been foully murdered, and by whom?
By a "number of unknown persons" so
read the newspaper report. Let Wm. A.
Wallace and his coadjutors in the coffee
colored naturalization paper fraud ask their
consciences if their hands are clear of his
The testimony is very voluminous, but
is rich, rare, and racy thrmirhv- "w
ttIsU wo had room to print it entire we
know our readers would enj.oy it. It all
goes to show that the Democratic party
has reached a depth of corruption and in
famy without parallel in political history.
The moral which is taught we conceive to
be plain. Let us take care that coffee-colored
naturalization -papers arc not alloiced
to swell the volume of the Democratic vote
this fall. The elections arc of the most
overshadowing importance, - and we must
look to it that no opportunity be offered
our desperate, unscrupulous enemy to col
onize, forge, and bribe. In no other way
than through the use of these truly Dem
ocratic means can he hope to achieve sue

The Declaration of Independence affirms
that ';all men are created free and equal,
and arc endowed with certain inalienable
rights, among' which are life, libert', and
the pursuit of happiness."
The Republican National Convention
re-affirmed this immortal principle, and put
the seal of approbation on every effort
looking. toward making the Declaration of
Independence the corner-stone of the Re
public. The Democratic party, on the other
hand, repudiate the Declaration, and affirm
that "this is a white man's government
that all men are not created free and equal,
but that the negro was foreordained to be
deprived of life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness at the will of the 'superior race.' "
Which do you believe the Declaration
of Independence, or the platform of prin
ciples of the Democratic party ?
The New York Tribune says it is very
little wonder that Northern men going
South should take no more than a carpet
bag, since they stand so slight a chance of
seeing .their baggage again, or even of re
turning. However, some 1,200,000 car
pet baggers under Gen. Grant contrived to
stay South as long as they cared to, and
some eight or ten thousand under Butler
were kindly entertained by the Rebels at
their own expense. After such illustrations
who can complain of Southern hospitality ?

To the committee appointed by the Re

"Mit. President, and Gentlemen of
the National Union Convention :
I will endeavor in a very short time to
write you a letter accepting the trust you
have imposed upon me.. Expressing my
gratitude for the confidence you have
placed in me, I will nowsay but little orrallj,
and that is to thank you for the unanimity
you have selected me as a candidate for
the Presidential office. I can say, in ad
dition, I looked on during the progress of
the proceedings at Chicago with a great
deal of interest, and am gratified with the
harmony and unanimity which seem to
have governed tbe deliberations of the
Convention. If chosen to fill the high
office for which you have selected me, I
will give to its duties the same energy,
the same spirit, and the same will, that I
have given t the performance of all
duties which have devolved upon me
heretofore. Whether I shall be able to
perform these duties to your entire satis
faction, time will determine. You have
truly said, in the course of your addresc,
that I shall have no policy of roy own to
interfere against the will of the people."
To a committee of the Soldiers' and
Sailors' Convention who presented him
with a copy of the resolutions adopted by
that bo-fy, he said :
'Gentlemen of the Soldiers' and
Sailors' Convention : I will say,
while it was never a desire of mine to be
a candidate for political office, it affords
me great gratification to feel that I have
the support of those who were with me in
the war. If I did not feel that I had the
confidence of those, I would feci less de
sirous of accepting the position. The ac
ceptance of the office is not a matter of
choice but of duty. Hoping, having ac
cepted the nomination, I will receive your
aid till next November, I must thank you,
gentlemen, for the honor you have con
ferred upon me."
In response to a serenade tendered him
by his friends in Washington, shortly af
ter the nomination, he said :
'Gentlemen : Being entirely unac
customed to public speakiDg, and without
the desire to cultivate that power (laugh
ter), it is impossible for me to find appro
priate language to thank you for thia dem
onstration. All that I can say is, that to
whatever position I may be called by your
will, I shall endeavor to discharge its du
ties with fidelity and honesty of purpose.
Of my rectitude in the performance of
public duties you will have to judge for
yourselves by my record before you."
