The Democratic press and stump speakers might as well try to tun nel through the Roeky Mountains with a hair-pin, as to break the force of this magnificent showing. Mb. J. II. Randall was one of the Greenback speakers in Alabama, and is tell ing ihe story of the campaign through the columns of the Washington National View. He reports that at one of the meetings, where there was joint speaking for the Dem ocratic and Greenback tickets, he heard the following language from one of the speak ers: "The confederacy sti* exists, my friends, and Jeff Davis, the best friend we ever had, is yet our President and devoted to our interests ; and if Hancock is elected, and we have no doubt he will be, you will be paid for all the property you have lost through Radical rule, and you must stand bv the great Democratic party, for a solid South will now give us entire control of the general government, and we can redress all our wrongs." A Garfield newspaper nrints two columns in display ot the mortgages which Mr. English lias owned and foreclosed in Indiana daring the last few years, with 'he names of the mort gagors and the amounts claimed or realized. Foot notes are added in which an attempt is made to aliow the unfeeling manner in which Mr. English has taken liis due. If there is any moral convoyed by the catalogue in ques tion it is that whoever owns a mortgage and forecloses it when it is due and obtains a judg ment for anv deficiency is a rogue.—Ν. Y. World. That is tjie doctrine held by the Green, back leaders in Maine, and their ! nulers are nominated for office and will he voted for by the Democratic organization in this State. Afghanistan and Fenianism. It is apparent from the recent proceedings in Parliament that the opposition of a con siderable party in England to the further prosecution of the war in Afghanistan is having an effect upon the Government ; and taken in connection with another event just now assuming importance, has placed Mr Gladstone's administration in a difficult posi tion. * There is a remarkable coincidence between the present effort to conquer Af ghanistan and the history of the struggle in 1839-42. The latter period was marked by treachery and savage ferocity that form one of the most revolting chapters in human history; both have been distinguished by English incompetency and vain-glorious assertion. Under the pretext that Hussia aspired to the control of Afghanistan and would thus threaten her Indian possessions, England entered upon a war of subjugation, following the line of operations that had given her the dominion of India; interfering first with the disputes of petty princes, and finally attempting to place on the throne by British bayonets a chief who was hated by the natives, in place of the wise and re •spected I)ost Mubainmed. But tjie British found a brave, ingenious, warlike and treacherous nation to deal with, who were more than their match in military skill. At home falsehood and deceit were used to silence the complaints of the opposition, and the commanders in the distant field were often left unsupported, if not treated with cowardice; and the history of these four years was one of horrible details. The present effort has been quite as fu tile if not as disastrous. It has cost millions of treasure, and blood enough. The recent overwhelming defeat of Gen. Burrows by Akoob.Kliau—an utter rout more terrible ι lian our first Bull Iiun—has roused an in dignant protest in England which has caused the adininistiation to hesitate: and it looks uu ** iuu Iiiiuiou ν ÏÏCIC QCCKlilg SUIIJ13 way to abandon the contest without the sacrifice of honor. The future of Afghanis tan under British arms is a grave question. Λ standing army of fifty thousand men could not repress this turbulent people: the trost of government would be enormous: commercially the varied and valuable pro ducts of the country will naturally seek, if the country is left to itself, a market through British ports; and more, a people brave and hardy enough to resist British power will be equally ready to resist Russian dominion, and keep the " highway to India" free from danger to British interests. The British spirit of conquest in that direction ought to cease: the Hindu Kush is the natural boundary of India on the northwest. The other event we have referred to as increasing the difficulty of the Gladstone administration is the Irish question: or more particularly Fenianism, which has sud denly come to the front again, but according Ό recent accounts, in a more effective form than before; with a better organization, more powerful and determined in its com position and tinder its present programme of operations more likely to succeed than any previous movement. It has a reliable membership in England, Scotland and Ire land, at present of 47,500 men: arms and ammunition arc reported to be abundant and easily obtained; and money has been liberally contributed. Λ correspondent of the New York Ilerald who is thoroughly acquainted with the organization, writes that the obj ct of the Brotherhood now is, and will be for some time to come, to organ ize, arm and finally to discipline from eighty thousand to one hundred thousand men in Ireland, and to pick from the English and Scotch organizations from three thousand to four thousand of the most determined men for action there, wlien.the proper mo ment arrives. As soon as the organization is completed and has appioached the per fection which is desired anil has sufficient funds 011 hand, the organization will become purely ^military. The correspondent adds, nicetprinnolv· "ΤΙ>α "' - changed form will simply await events." It; is said that the reorganized Fenians have been prepared to act for some lime. The fall of the Beaconsfield government and the rise of Gladstone gave hope to the Irish people of a remedy of their wrongs, for the Irish question, it will be remembered, en tered into that canvass. But the Gladstone ministry has disappointed them. Although Fenianism and the Land League are not harmonious organizations, the rejection of the Irish bill in the House of Lords will have an effect upon Fenianism, because it is a rejection of a concession to Irish demands. Insurrection in Ireland at this time would find England in a cri.ical condition, bur dened as she is with an unpopular and ex haustive war in Afghanistan and social questions of an unusually grave nature at home. A Maine correspondent oi the Boston Advertiser has the following to say concern ing the First District: The unhappy honeymoon of the Fusionists destroys the last hope the most sanguine of them may have entertained. The disaffection of the out-and-out Greenbackers is greater than has ever been allowed to appear. It may serve to keep up the courage of their party or parties, in other districts to sneer at the proc lamation of Turner and his associates, and de clare it a wail of Portland soreheads. But such is not the case. In the back towns and country districts there are found not a few who protest against the sale, and declare they will knock the whole arrangement in the head". The party has always been noted for its weak and cheap men. These have ever come to the front, and seizing the reins have attempted to run the concern. They have been supplied with Greenback literature, and sent out into hamlets and school districts to speak their pieces and win an easy fame. These men will be flattered and bought to the support of Anderson. But back of them is the ι ody of voters, and they are the ones who decline to be made the bobs to the old-time and always Democratic leader. The Green backer of Republican antecedents has been told repeatedly that his course was directly into the Democratic fold, and as often he has denounced the charge as malicious and de clared he was standing upon principle. So long as he could hold his convention, and then ï_.l —- 1' well. He claimed to see nothing out of place in that. Certainly ho would not repel any who wished to vote with him. ISut the word comes from all parts of the lirst district that these men view the present situation in a very different light. They deem the proposed transaction as involving a positive act which will brand all their previous professions as false pretences, and throw to the dogs all the political character of which they have boasted. They are right in their conclusions, and there is no doubt that they will stand by by them. If a Greenback candidate is nomin ated most of them will vote for him. Other wise many will stay away from the polls, and others will vote for the Republican nominee. Lewistox Journal: Pillsbury told liis Democratic audience at Auburn Hall that "Maine shipyards are as deserted as grave yards," under Republican rule. This is about as near as he usually comes to telling the truth. Since 1860, when the Republi cans came into power, Maine has built 3,000 wooden vessels, many more than any other two States in the Union, worth more than $70,000,000. At Bath alone there were built in 1876 vessels having a tonnage of 31,932.07; in 1877, 30,472.62; in 1878, 13, 639.24; in 1870 the amount was 17,383.59. But let the Democracy come into power, and carry out their declared policy of allow ing American registration to foreign built ships, and in three months eveiy shipyard in Maine would he "deserted as grave yards," and every ship carpenter seeking work in vain Boston' Transcript: The "Quaker vote" in Maine is an element in the canvass that the Democrats are not counting on. It will come from the ballots of the decent Demo crats in that State, who became disgusted with the attempt at fraud, and who will vote the Republican ticket iu the coming elec tion.

Secretary Evarts declares in liis report of the commercial relations of the United States: *'It is but repetition to say that no other country has such a favorable trade showing as ours, and that the total balance of trade in favor of all otUer countries does not amount to one half the balance of trade in favor of the United States."

The Cross Boads Ratify the Nomination of Hancock and English—Extracts from the Speecnes Made on that Occasion— The Forgiving Temper of the Corners. ^Toledo Blade.] âWo pat off the ratificashen uv the l>ime kratic nominees till this late day for two rea sons, viz., we wantid to wait till somebody had tapped his barl so that the ratificashen cood go off with some eclaw, and second—we hed to wait tiUBoscom got a fresh barl uv likker from Looisville.

We hev eviy earthly chance to succeed, and ef we don't, it's oar fault. Ther is no more disfranchisement—no matter how long a patriot served in the Con fed rit Army, he can vote jest the same as tho he hcd served in the Fedral Army. It is troo we hev bin obleeged to nominate a Fedral soljer but that shood be no objekshun. Ef ho fit on one side he hez votid on the other with commendable regularity, and it is time that the South berried sich isshoos. For one, I lied forgiven Giueral Hancock for drorin his sword on the wrong side. I forgive him, and shel vote for him, even ef he wuz agin us. I earn estly hoped that his bein a Fedral soldier wood not be held agin him, but that the solid South wouid show its generosity by a broad and com prehensive forgivenis. Deekin Pogram sed tliet it wuz a bitter pill for one wicli hed lost his niggers, and wlioos fences and pertaters hed bin taken by Ginral Morgan, and wich theFedrel Guvernment hed refoosed to pay for, to vote for aFedrel Ginral. It ruther riled him to vote for eny man wich hed evor wore bloo. But ef it wuz nessary to do so in order to ketch ennff Northern votes he sposed he sliood hev to submit. He did sub mit, and wood publicly say that lie forgave Ginral Hancock for bein in the Fedral army. It wuz the dooty ur the South to forgive, b - cause we want jestis dun us. We want our brave soljers penshuned, v.e wSnt the losses inflicted onto us by a crooel and unjustifiable war paid, and while it will do the present ger. erasliun sum good, and we want Seceslin Crik slack watered. If to do all this requires the elecksluin uv a Northern soljer, so bo it. With the understandin thet Hancock repents his vandalism the deekin exprest hisself ez willing to vote for Hancock.

Ho wood proudly appeal to any one present toriteef lie hed ever pade eny taxes, ceptin incidentally the accursed tax on likker, and thet wuz mostly evaded by gittin our supplize uv the Moonshiners. Wat folly then for the Comers, wich wants a custom house and a ship canal, and improvement uv rfeceshu Crik, and a dozen other tilings wich will take fruin the Njrth a million uv dollars, and distribbit it down here, to stop to inquire wat color the nominee uv the Dimokratic party wore doorin the la'e unholy war.

He wautid pay for the property wich the Confedrits took when they wuz ragin tliroo Kentucky, and lie wantid appropriashens. Consekently he took a broad, statesman-like vew uv the matter, and shood vote for Hancock jist th'e same ez tho he hed bin ez good aConfedrit ez Lee hisself. He forgave him frum the bottom uv his hart for bein a Fedrel soljer. Ginral Hancock coodent help it. Kernell McPeiter reaiarkt that in vow uv the necessity uv bavin Suthern soljers pen shuned, and Suthern loses made good, like wise uv hevin some sort uv contrôle uv the labor uv the slaves wich the infamus Linkin unconstitooshenelly freed, he wuz willin to forgiv the nominee uv the Dimekratic party for barin arms agin the South. But lie felt that sutliin wuz doo the South, sut h i η uv a sootb in nacher. The South wuz proud, aud to con stantly remind her uv her humiliasheu wuzn't jist the thing. He wood se.jest to Hancock that, inezmuch ez the South forgives him, that he drop the title uv gineral and be spoken uv hereafter ez simply Sir. Hancock. Shoorly no man wich wood take a nominashen at' the hands uv the Dimocrisy wood waut to retain a title won by fitin agin that patty.

N. |Kew York.Tiwcs.] Δ Maine Reminiscence. The Supremo Court of the State of Maine has just decided what is known as the ''Cum berland County case." tlip details of which are instructive. They illustrate very forcibly the Democratic methods pursued in Maine and elsewhere. At the September election in 187!» William L. Prince was tho Republican candi date for Commissioner for the County ol Cum berland; and William I). Skillin was the Dem ocratic candidate for that office. In making up the returns, Gov. Garoelon and his Demo cratic associates threw out the entire vote of the city of Portland, the return being rejected as illegal because two votes were returned as "scattering," when the returns should have given the names of all the candidates voted for. This rejection of 6,'it l votes cast in the city of Portland defeated the Republican can didate on the face of the returns. But it so happened that there were cast in the whole connty l,lti8 votes for "Shillings," who was not a candidate. Obviously, these votes were meant for Skillin, but if the rule which had already been applied to Republican candidates were appealed to in this case, the rotes cast for "Ski I lines''did not belong to Skillin, and be was defeated. The Democratic canvassers were equal to the occasion. Going over the re turns, they erased the terminal "gs" from the name of the Democratic candidate in some in stances, and in others they drew a pencil line through the letters to indicate that they did not belong there. Then they gave the certifi cate to Skillin, who entered upon the duties of his office. When Garcelou and the rest of the Demo. cratic-Fusion managers were contriving the hocus-pocus by which iliey expccted to over turn a popular majority in Maine, they claimed with a great show of virtue that they were conforming to the strict letter of the law. In one case there was a doubt whether the second or "middle" name of a Republican candidate began with an H or an Λ. The returns had been tampeied with, and the candidate's name appeared with the II in some cases, and with the Λ in others, some person having joined the upper part of the letter so that it appeared like an A. There was no doubt as to the in tention of the voters, none as to the alteration of the returns. Iiut a Democratic junta counted the vote as if it were intended for two distinct persons, and the Democratic candidate was thus counted in. Vet the same men who refused to consider that there had been an error in the returns, if not ι positive tamper ing therewith, took precisely a different course in the case of a Democrat, and, after making the needed corrections, gave him a certificate of election. Ànd this would have been of no avail if the vote of a large city had not been thrown out as illegal on a technicality which was a far less fatal objection than that which had been removed in the c*se of Skillin. The hypocrisy of the Democratic managers, in their pretense that they weie strictly carrying out the law, regardless of party considerations, is apparent. Skillin entered upon the duties of his olfice, and Prince brought legal proceed ings to oust him. The Supreme Court has just decided in favor of Frince. The decision is 011 the broad ground that an election is not to be set aside and declared void merely be cause certain illegal votes were received which do not change the result of the election. It is not pretended in this case that there illegal votes cast, nor that there was fraud, intimida»· tion or irregularity in the conduct of the elec tion. But the clerk returned two votes as "scattering," instead of specifying the names of the persons for whom these votes were cast, in a poll of 6,313 votes. This error was imma terial. It could not in any way affect the gen eral result. The return clearly showed the will of the voters of the county, and "their will as expressed by the ballot is what is to be ascertained and declared." In this case, it will be cbserved, the failure of the Democratic Governor and Council to appiy iu men canuiuaie, mkumii, me same rule which they had enforced when Kepubli can candidates could be counted out cuts no figure in the decision of the Supreme Court. But it is a matter of record, and it forms a dark blot in the history of the Maine Democ racy and Fusiouists. It was a deliberate and willful conspiracy in which Garcelon and hi· associates were engaged. Innumerable in stances conclusively pioving the criminal in tent of these men might be cited. It is too lite to make any argument as to the wicked ness of this conspiracy. The court of last re sort, in every case, has decided against the legality of the election certificates issued by Garcelon, when such certificates were granted on the "amended returns." Yet a prominent ^Democrat, being asked if the published details of the Garcelon scheme would not affect the election this year, replied in the negative, ad ding that "the people of Maine did not care anything about that business one way or anoth er.'' This is an amazing statement. Is it possi ble that the voters of Maine, after looking upon one of the most dastardly political crimes ever committed, aro now indifferent as to what be comes of the criminals'.' The men who con ceived and attempted to execute this daring theft are now leading in the Democratic ana Fusion ranks. It is incredible that a party that deliberately sought to overturn tho em phatically expressed will of the people should be again intrusted with power. The crimes of Garcelon and his gang were monstrous. They were the crimes of the party behind these men, the party which is now straining every nerve to elect Plaisted. It is well that the infamous conspiracy of the Garcelon gang is brought again to men's minds. It was a piece of Dem ocratic work worthy of the party, and very generally indorsed by the party. It is not possible that voters have ceased to take any interest in a political crime so black as this was. A Greenbacker's Views. Extracts From a Speech by the Former Greenback Candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania. At a meeting in Pittsburg last week the ir,„. α τ? \τ for governor of Pennsylvania, said: lu a HepubUcan forift of government such as ours the majority must au<l of right ought to rule, and hence tliu .National party submitted to the will of the people, as expressed at the ballot-box. The great issues then before the country ifre now settled. The<|uestionof the cur rency, like the old question of United States banks, has been put to rest by that noiseless but supreme agency the ballot. Life is too short for us to attempt to revive the past dead issues. We must meet the realities of the present, and deal with them as we find tlicm The people of these Uuited States are again callev upon to choose the chief magistrate of the na tiou. Iu exercising this high duty too much caution cannot be observed. Passion aud sec tional prejudice should not have a place in the desire lor the best interests oi the general good The triumph of one party or the other will set tle the policy of the country for the next four years at least. As there is 110 distinctive issue upon which the National party can stand, the contest will be between the Republican and Democratic parties, and between these the people must make a choice. TU" history of the Republican party aud its record are before the people. There is nothing uncertain or equivocal about it. Its lines of policy are distinctly marked. Even on 1 ha question of the currency the members of that party gave forth no uncertain sound. Their deliverancts were unhesitatingly made. They went before the people on their utteran ces. and the result of the election showed where the popular heart beat. That there has beeu at times much unwise and even bad legis lation no honest man will doubt. That dishon est and corrupt men have sometimes held places is equally true. That such has been the * lact as to all political parties, not only the lus tory of our own, but ut all other countries, abundantly proves. To iliscorn the ' evil and Drovide the remedy rests with the poople, through the agency of the ballot, where every citizeii. from the highest official to the lowest cottager in the land, has the same voice. \Vliat the policy of the Democratic parly lias been for the past twenty years would bo difficult to determine. Looking at their utter ances as expressed by the part} assembled 111 conventions, and taking these as a whole, the casual reader would be at a loss to discover whether they had either principle or policy. In different Slates and even in different sec tion s of the State, the same policy did not pre vail. Une State declared lor hard money, while another was in favor of the lejal-tender money to be issued by the government alone as the money for the people. By this vaci'· lating course"they lost not only the confidence of
