An Old Document.

Majqais Treaeurer. There waSj
much excitement and interest taken
in this election, and nearly every!
voter in the township responded
The vote, it will be seen, w;is very
e'oe. Aside from the local party J
eengnations of "Brimstones" and j
'Juntos," which, at that day, was
violent and bitter, there was a ques
tion of reform that agitated the
public mind of the Township in re
gard to the lOOHeaud unsatisfactory
in which the affair of the School
Section had been conducted. Wise
man. Durbin and Hannu wore the
reform candtdates, and they suc
ceeded by a enmU majority over
the old foggies who bad had, for
some years, the control of the rents,
profits and issues ol the Section.
Theaflaira of the Section, about
this time, were in a deplorable con
dition, and called loudly for a re
f irm, and seemed to need the vigi
lenceof some energetic men to un
lavel tho tangled skein, and bring
order out f ebaos. At that day.
all that fertile and productive Sec
tion 16, in Malta township, and in
the immediate vicinity of the thri
ving village of Malta, would only
bring into the Treasury of 'he Section
for School purposes, a few gallons of
iloxahala Whisky from each of the
laaseh Iders. The leaseholders dic
tated to the Trustees the amount of
the annual rent, and when and in
what manner it should be paid. The
annual rent was at a very low rate, to
be paid when the several lessees
pleased, and that in whisky, or corn
at twenty-five cents a bushel, and that
by the Trustees exchanged for sto e
It will be observed by those acquain
ted with the 1'at of voters at that elec
tion, that death has ben among them.
Of the whole number, oaly about 14
are kn vn to survive. Seven, only,
of the survivors now reside in the
Township. It appears, then, that in a
voting population of sixty-six persons,
ufter the lapse of forty years, only J4
of that number survive and half of
survivors only are rcs dents of the
Township that then knew them. Let
those who may be studying the vital
statistics of the country, rc fiet and
speculate upon the probable duration
of the livea of men as exposed by the
list of adults upon this poll-book.
The New York Election—An
Do you hear that men and brethren?
Take courage friends aid countrymen
for the day is not far distant, when the
corruptioni8ts, who now hold power,
on-Ty, tJ rob and insult a confiding peo
ple, and to . override the Constitution
and the rights of" the states, will be
driven "from place.
A leading Republican paper; the
Cincinnati Commercial, in comment
ing upon the result of the New York
election, says: ' The result of the New
York election is not a comforting one
to the Republicans. While a tremen
dous Democratic majority waa an ioipa-
ted in the city, it was thought the in
terior would give a handsome Republi
can majority. The incomplete return?
however, indicate that the State, aa
well as the city, is Democratic." Now
for a confesfcion, that is good for the
poor Republican soul, lne Lommer-
cial further says: "With heavy taxes,
protective tariffs, land grabbing legis
lation and Sumner's social equality
bill, what other results are ltepubli-
cans to expect ?"
This great and glorious Democratic
victory is a moral trumph, obtained
without force, fraud or corrupting in
fluences. Hundreds of the fanners,
mechanics and working men of New
York, who, in the past, have acted with
the Eepuplican party, fondly nd a
tiently looking for some good to ccrae
out of that organizatin, have wheeled
round, and taken a new departure
Besides this, a victory is obtained over
a united negro vote, from which the
Republicans expected so much. The
negroj voting for the fisst time, had
learnee to practice the election fraud
of his political master. JIany negroes
turned what is called "repeaters, and
as directed by white Radicals, voted
earlv a-:d late, freouentlv. and all the

In the city of New York, every voter
betore he can vote is required to have
his name egistered. I he negro, being
a new and fresh voter, was active and
keen in the new business. He dropp
ed bis razor, boot-blacking brush, left
the stable, the kitchen, the bas ment,
the coal hole, and rushed to the poll?,
under the guidance and directions of
some unscrupulous Radicals. After he
voted his own name in the ward of his
residence, he went into other election
district-of the city, and c'aimed the
name of a white voter on the regi ter,
and "repeated eis first vote, thereby
dcpiiving many respectable white Rad
icals from exerciser g the right of suff
rage, for the reason that the black Rad
ical had been there before him, and
claimed the name, and had deposited
a " all t. Ihere was some little swear
ing about this ime by the white Radi
cal, at the impat'ence of Sambo, the
new ma'e voter.
This thin, called Universal suff
rage, if we are not car ful in its exer
cise, will be run into the ground, and
will ere long become dig sting, even
to its fanatical advocates.

into the huge pile of Radical abomina

law ot the land; so that hereafter, ev

ed to say them in his presence;
I cannot be deterred irom noting
what he said by his voluntary r.b
scence; ar.d although 1 shall retraim
from saying all t'.iat I would say
were he present, j-ct I am not to be
prevented from noticinir what he-
did say meuly because ho sees fit
to absent himself. The nenator
from California noticed the singu
lar declaration he made, that if the
last Presidential election had de
pended on the vote of New York,
that is to say, that if with that
vote Mr. gej'tnour would have buen
elected, thero would have beon war
and revolution, for that was Hie sub
stance, tho meaning of tho remark.
let that pass with tho remarks
that have been mado upon it by the
senator from California. But my
colleague saw fit to go further, and
he sivv fit to use this language:
"The strengrh of the Democratic
patty for years dtring the wir and

the cities where vice breeds "

ty "lies in the j st houses of the

Sir, I should scorn myself if J
were to go
into anv refutation ot
such a clmrSo as that. I have
heard the Democratic party de-
..: n.T,.;, Ti t
common to do
it. It is too com-
c rt ot.-c ,.rt.v i.-.rt..fv
ed the Democratic party in thisj
way they are denouncing onh-half
of their own countrymen. When
they denounce che Democratic par
ty as traitors, us sympathizers with

to tho world that ono-half of the
American people are enemies if

tenator gets up;.
here and shvs that
the strength of the Democratic par
ty, tho strength of n--half the peo
pie of tho United Stale, "lies in the
pest-houses of the cities whero vice
baceds," he hold up a picture to
the world whibh should appall man
kind and repel every man from
our shores, fcir, it will not Ud. If
iriH a mere figuro of speech, it is a
figure of epeech which a man sho'd
bo ashamed to utter. If it was in
tended in seriousness, then thero ia
no condeir.nution foo stroii"; for the
utterance of sucli a sentiment.
Why, tfir, my colleague Jives in a
country that jiivc a good soli-1

which thero is no laro ity; a
county of farmers, of men with
moderate forms, few beyond eighty
acres, very fov, indeed; a county

another, still " moro Democratic.
On the south of it is still another,
also Democratic, so thit my coN
leaguo can hardly step oat of his
