Hon. Wm. Hartzell, Dcmocraticcondidate
clue to the author of the threatening
Inttnr sunt to J. T. Allen, the colored Demo
crat, a few days oco, lias as yet been dis-
covered, but that he is a Republican, ana a
very foolish man, is evident. Wc nrc not
disposed to follow the example 01 journal
ists of Remiblican proclivities, who, when
some negro desperado is politely asked to
vacate the neighborhood in one 01 tne
southern states, even though the request be
signed by persons of both parties, at once
hurl denunciations at the entire Democratic
party, and declare that the party's majon
ties in all the southern states is manulac
tured in just such a manner. We will not
follow their example, even though tins De
onlv one of the numerous means employed
by the Republican leaders in this district
to hold the colored vote. We will not
charge the entire party with participation
and sympathy in these acts, for we
know that thousands of Republican
voters are honest men who denounce such
outrar.es from wherever they may come.and
who would not accept a success at the polls
bought at such a sacrifice of honor and hon
esty on the part of their party. We de
nounce this act as we would any similar
one perpetrated in the south or any where
else by Democratic leaders in the interest
ot their party. We look at it as we would
have every reader look at it from the
stand point of one who believes that the
success of our system of government de
pends upon the honesty and intelligence
of the voters and the purity and freedom
of the ballot. We might point to a
creat number of attempts to force the col
ored men of this district, by means not so
flagrantly disreputable as this, to vote the
straieht Republican ticket; we could call
attention to the party hatred which has
manifested itselt in various parts ot the
state, and broken out on the Republican
6ide, in acts of violence, such as cutting
down Democratic flag poles, ostracising
Democrats for their political sentiments,
etc.. and we could even point to several
murders, committed by infuriated Repub
licans, simply because their Democratic vie
tims dared to give expression to their
sentiments, and we could come nearer home
to our own county and reitterate,
with may exclamation and interrogation
points, the various questionable influences
and positively corrupt means that have
been employed by over zealous Republican
leaders here to insure a Republican m
jority in this county, and could exclaim,
after the manner of the wishy-washy little
tlipfts pdited bv so many hot-headed
mental pigmies! "More Republican bull
dozing! Democratic blood flows at the
hands of Radical villains! etc., etc'' but
The campaign has now reached such a
point, that all the facts concerning the char
acter and antecedents of the candidates are
pretty well known. The scrutiny of the
past lives and publicly avowed opinions of
Gen. Hancock and Mr. Garfield, has result
ea altogether in favor of the former. There
has not been left a single spot, in the hitto
ry or character of our modern Chevalier
Bayard, whereon the most expert of a mud
throwing party could cause a particle of dirt
to stick. Gen. Hancock is a soldier, but
his foes have found him a generous victor.
His contreres, without exception, give him
rmlit for nersonal courage of the
highest type und sagacity which eminently
fitted him for independent command, and
made him the trusted mentor of his supe
riors. His subordinates have not in their
ranks one who can, or does, say aught of
him that would indicate the martinet
In his history, he is equally fortunate.
No public or private scandal clings to his
skirts. The attempt to connect him with
the quasi-judicial murder of Mrs. Surrat,
only Berved to fix more firmly upon tho Re
publican party, an act which should and
will render it intamous. Ridicule was
evoked no Bnecr at his letter of accept
ance, as being ol the Columbian ora
tor style, but its general truths written
in a clear and resonant style, from the
basis upon which the structure of our in
stitutions cau alone Bafely test
The mare's nest, which they presumed
held an eL'K of treason, in the Sherman
letter, only yielded honor and credit to the
general. It left no longer a doubt that
Hancock was a patriot as well us a soldier,
and the scribe loomed up as a stateman of
sound understanding and thorrugh grasp
in all that related to constitutional princt
ta"e of our fathers, wero maintained su
It is not wonderful that the young men
of the nation rally round our standard
bearer. He is n bright example of what
they should be, and in his life as citizen
and soldier, elicits perfect confidence that
tho country is safe in his hands; that his
administration will maintain peaco at home
and defend its citizens abroad.
Whatever shortcomings the Democratic
party has been guilty of in the moro recent
past is atoned for in now presenting us
with a candidate in whom aro embodied
the purity and patriotism of the best days
of our republic.

to be grossly vituperative when speaking of
Democrats, has not a word to say against
Hancock. When asked in Boston how he
liked him, he said, "I'll tell you, if you
