That he is a careful, honest, public

hardly necessary for us to say. Go

Adi'isdry Committee to the County
Central Committee. If the people
of any of the school districts w ish
to have meetings held.or documents

report j'our wants ; to the Central
Committee. 'We have every confi
dence in the courage and determin
ation of the party to assert its
principles at the polls, but much
depends upon the local organization
in j securing the attention of the
voters, and pressing upon them
the importance of action nt a mo
ment when a feeling of indifference
and disgust pervades the ranks of
the opposition party. Its leaders
in this county . have already com
menced to play the usual " game of
bluff, but ' they cannot deceive
people of ordinary sense and good
eyesight':'. We earnestly hope the
Advisory Committees in each town
ship will, heed our suggestions nud
go to work immediately. There
are Republicans in each school dis
trict who 'are looking about for
some way of getting relief from the
oppression of the corrupt party
that has increased the taxes of our
countryby increasing the salaries
of officers in every department, at
the very time they , proclaimed re
form the loudest, and these Repub
licans, who are honest and labor
day 1 after day, and are wearied
of this state of things, should be
encouraged in their determination
to put down the Credit Mobilier
part', as honest people never had
a' fairef moment to secure these
results than 'at the coming election.
Last fall that party promised the
people that there should bo a reduc
tion of the expenses of administer
ing the Government, but ns soon
as Congress assembled, the expen
ses were increased. Listen no moro
Tto false, promises of the party !

The Radicals tax tho farmers to
death and when this great interest
seeks ' tb secure itself some relief
from the great burdens of State,
National and monopoly , taxation,
thpy are met yyith ridicule. Tho
truth is labor is overburdened and
cannot much longer bear the loud.
A day of retribution, aday of sorrow

olllce-holders and others fatteninr
off tho sweat and toil of oil ers,
may come alas too soon. Then
derision visited upon the farmers
for their efforts to' adjust the pres
