TIHE GREAT ELECTORAL FRAUD.
DLR. TILDEN'S DESPATCHI TO THE IRON CITY CLUB OF PITTS BURG.I, PITTSBURGH, April 8.-In his lec ture before the Iron City Ti.den CGuh this evening Mr. J. H.. Hopkins strongly endorsed Mr. Tilden as the Democratic Presidential candidate, which elicited tremendous applause. The following despatch was read: NEW YonK, April 8, 1879. To the Lecture Comnmitte of the Iron City Tilden Club, Pittsburgh, Pa: Please communicate to your eluli my thanks for their Invitation to at tend the lectureof Mr. Hopltins, though my engagements render it impossible to be present. In 1876 the Democracy achieved a victory in the name and for the sake of a reform Administra tion, which would restore the Govern ment, in spirit and substance as well as form, to the benign character in which it was created by our patriotic ancestors. They were defrauded of the fruits of that victory by a false count of the 'electoral votes. That wrong casts upon this generation the responsibility of a far greater ques tion. The great duty is to vindicate the right of the people to elective self government. If the subversion of the elective system proves successful and prosperoos, those who are in power may count themselves in at every election, and prolong'their dominion indefinitely. Such a question ought to be divested of every personal aspect. The wrongs to individuals become in sigonificant in comparison with the crime against the people, against free government, and all the best hopes of mankind. SAMUlt J. TILDEN. GEN. RICiBAI TATLOi. Gen. Richard Taylor, whose death took placd yesterday in New York at the residence of his life-long friend and college-mate, S. W. Barlow, Esq., was one of the best known generals of the war. As the Mon of a man who by his military services had Satained to the great distinction of the Presidency, lie filled a larg place in public expecta tion, and inherited great responsibili ties. It was only when the Confede rate war placed him in high military command-that be was pble to prove that his powers and his capacity had not been over-estimated. Born sixty-two years ago in Baton Rouge, where his father, Gen. Zachary Taylor, who was then an officer in the regulararmy, was stationed, his- lite seemed to be woven into the histor. of this State. SOwing to the fact that his father was compelled to, move from place to place, as soon as young Taylor was of sufficient age he was sent North to school. At Harvard he soon gave er id nece of the abilities which marked his after career. He was still-engaged in his studies when his father was or dered to Corpus Christi to take charge of the army destined for the invaesio of Mexico, and accompanied him in, his advance. Hq was byv the side of the General in the numerous and bloody battles whieh elevated him to the highest gift in the hands of the American people. As soon as the war was over, young Taylor returaed to Louisianrla, which State he had always considered his home, and shortly after marrying a lady of wealth became a sugar planter, and devoted himself to the material welfare of the Stat. Dietermined on a life ofquiet on hise plantation, it was not long beforeb his abilities became mapifest, and he was on several ocea alones elected to the State Senate and ocnpied a position among the leading politicians of the State. Always earaee in his convietions when the clouds of diseord arose among the States ha cast his fortune with that one in which he was boin, and as a memberofthe Secession Con ventton his voice was load in advo cacy of that State sovereignty which he believed incorporated in the funda mental law of our country. Seeing among the first that the dis raption of the Union would only be accomplished after a long and bloody stroggle1 he at ones placed his military experience at the aervice of the State, and as one of the military council or ganised the army of Louisiana. As soon as his duties here were over, de sirous of taking an active part in the struggle, he raised and was elected Colonel of the 9th Regiment of Volun teers, and in the early campaigns of the war distinguished himself by his bravery and skill. He suneeeeded Geo. William Walker ina the eommeaMtd of his brigade, sad shared with Stonewall Jackson the glory of his Valley campaion and iof the movements around Richmond. irs abilities were quickly recognked by the famous Virginian, sad he wad by his express recommendation pro meted to the rank of Major General mand asasigned to the Trans-Misissippi Department. It was here that his capacity :as a leader irst became apparent to the people Atlarge, and his suceusin the ecmpaign against Bunks on the Red River, crowned b thie battle at Mans field, gave him a lasting reputation as a military leader. Agreeable in manners, a brilliant conversationalist, and gifted with an intelligence, at once bright andatrong, General Taylor won friends wherever he went, and in England, where he spent some summers, he was a wel come guest in the most distinguished tireles of fashion and intellect, The last few years of his life have been spent in the North, where he has been busily engaged in writing a book em bodying his expeliefces of the war. Devoted from his earliest manhood to his State anad country, hIe was looked upon by thuse who knew him, as a true noblemnan. His death, fa;r away from the people of the State he loved anl served so well, ill cause a ping in mnlny a helart which has known and felt his F worth, and bring to those who served with himii through the victories and the defeats ofthe war the remenl;llnnce of the soldier whom they loved and the C leader whom they ti usted and ad miretl. When Loui<iana in after years raises P Ia moolinent to all tlhosa who served her well and loved her best, high up ailnllig those whom she w ill delight to hIoiinor ill be this sta tesulin, soldier Ltand patriot.--vNew (rhlieais Piqiyune.

UBSCRIBE FOR -LTBCRIBE TIE DEMOCRAL NEW THIS DAY. 45 Years Before the Public. THE GENUINE DR. C. MoLANE'S CELEBRATED LIVER PILLS, FOR THIIE CURE OF Hepatitis, or Liver Complaint, DYSPEPSIA AND SICK HIIADACHB. Symptoms of a Diseased Liver. P AIN in the right side, under the edge of the ribs, increases on pres sure; sometimes the pain is in the left side; the patient is rarely able to lie on the left side; sometimes the pain is felt under the shoulder blade, and it frequerrtly extends to the top of the shoulder, and is spmetimes mistaken for rheumatism in the arm. The stomach is affected with loss of appe tite and sickness; the bowels in gen eralare costive, sometimes alternative with lax; the head is troubled with pain, accompanied with a dull, heavy sensation in the back part. There is generally a considerable loss of mem ory, accompanied with a painful sen-. sation of having left undone some thing which ought to have been done. A slight, dry cough is sometimes an attendant. The patient complains of weariness and debility; he is easily startled, his feet are cold or burning, and he complains of a prickly sensa tion of the skin; his spirits are low; and although he is satisfied that exer cise would be beneficial to him, yet he can scarcely summon up fortitude enough to try it. In fact, he distrusts every remedy. Several of the above symptoms attend the disease, but cases have occurred where few of them ex isted, yet examination of the body, after death, has shown the LIVER to have been extensively deranged. AGUE AND FEVER. DR. C. MCLANE'S LIVER PILLS, IN I CASES OF AGUE AND FEVER, when taken with Quinine, are productive of the most happy results. No better cathartic can be used, preparatory to, or after taking Quinine. WYe would advise all who are afflicted with this disease to give them a FAIR TRIAL. For all bilious derangements, and as a simple purgative, they are unequaled. BEWARE OF IRITATIONS. The genuine are never sugar coated. Every box has a red wax seal on the lid, with the impression DR. McLANE'S LIVEx PILLS. The genuine McLANx'S LIVER PILLS bear the signatures of C. McLANE and FLEMING BRos. on the wrappers. Insist upon having the genuine DR. C. McLANE'S.LIVER PILLS, prepared by Flem. ingBros., of Pittsburgh, Pa., the market being full of imitations of the name McLane, spelled differently but same pronunciation. ilA . T''nt standard article is compound ed with the greatest care. Its effects are as wonderful and as satisfactory as ever. It restores gray or faded hair to its youthful color, It removes all eruptions, itching and dandruff. It gives the head a cooling, soothing sensation of great comfort, and the scalp by its use beComes white and clean. By its tonic properties it restores the capillary glands to their normal vigor, preventing baldness, and mak ing the hair grow thick and strong. As a dressing, nothing has been found so effectual or desirable. A. A. Hayes, M.D., State Assayer 1 of Massachusetts, says, "The con stituents are pure, and carefully se lected for excellent quality; and I consider it the BEuT PREPARATIO. for its intended purposes." Prin OOe Dollaae - FOR THE WHISKERS,. This elegant preparation may be relied on to change the color of the beard from gray or any other undesir. able shade, to brown or black, at dis cretion. It is easily applied, beingin one pieparation, and quickly and ef fectually produces a permanent color, which will neither rub nor wash off. stataungted by R, P.
