SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1370. THE GUBERNATORIAL CAMPAIGN IN NEW YORK. The present Gubernatorial oampaiga in New York is attracting great attention, not only on account of the interest felt in the future political position of the largest State in the Union, but on aooonnt of the numerous Charges and counter-charges impeaching the personal integrity of the leaders of both par lies which are made by Republican and Democratic journals. If one-half these Stories are true, the imagination cannot easily conceive of anything more rotten and rascally than New York politics. It was said long ago that partisanship was the madness of the many for the benefit of the few, but in no age or country have snoh striking illustra tions of this assertion been given as those now presented in the Empire State and the pothamite metropolis. The Democratic candidate for Governor, tlr. Hoffman, has heretofore ranked as one of the most incorruptible members of his organ Ization, and his general record as a man and ft publio officer ip remarkably good. It is alleged, however, that notwithstanding this, outward show and common practice of virtue, lie lives, moves, and has his being, politi cally, as the puppet of William M. Tweed, who in pronounced by the Republican journals, as well as by a portion of his own party, as the most daring of modern corruptionists, and the most successful of the experts in the in famous art of coining political power into money. lie runs the Tammany machine, is accused of arranging the programme for the gigantic frauds by which Democratic viotories are achieved, and as a reward for these labors it is alleged that he draws imperial revenues from the City treasury and the plundered stockholders of the Erie Railroad. According to the Re publican view of Hoffman, his real business B3 a Democratic Governor has been to play the part of an accomplice to these gigantic frauds, the fine speeches and high-sounding professions of devotion to Democratic princi ples which are made fromtime to time being put forth mainly to insure the control of the masses by a gang of greedy thieves. The Democracy soarcely attempt to make a Berious reply to these charges. Their chief reliance in the campaign is the counter change against the Republican candidate for Governor that, while he was acting as Assistant United States District Attorney at New York in 1801, and while he was officially concerned in the prosecution of the criminals accused of an attempt to engage in the slave trade, he vir tually became their accomplice under suspi cious circumstances! This charge is sup ported mainly by testimony elicited through the exertions of a fellow official under Lin coln's administration, the Republican United States Marshal at New York, and it is part of the defense of Woodford that this Marshal Las been incited to this course through his indignation at Woodford's successful opposi tion to a scheme for confiscating stocks and Londs held by Southern men, by which the irate Marshal hoped, at one time, to make a large fortune! The result of the campaign in the State is supposed to hinge, in a large measure, upon the aotion of the Republicans of New York city in local politics. If they vote Republican tickets pure and simple, there is little or no Lope of making an inroad upon the Demo cratic majority. To ensure the adoption of this disastrous policy the Tammany organiza tion keeps in its pay a large number of the members of the Republican General Commit tee, who earn their wages of sin by pressing the Republican masses into the service of the omnipotent Tweed. . Notwithstanding the fearless exposure of this despicable intrigue by the Tribune and Timts, there is danger that it will be repeated as shamelessly this year as in former campaigns, and that the New York city Republicans will thus be sold out for a small share of plunder to the Demo cratic robbers ! In the comparatively early stages of society, gangs of thieves make direct war upon the honest and industrious members of the community, stealing money and property wherever they can be seized by artifice or force. This system has its disadvantages, as it sometimes imposes undue burthens upon a few victims, but it was at least more manly and more courageous than the style of opera tions adopted by the publio thieves of our day who are making politics a synonym for knavery, and who not only rnle New York State and city, but exercise a potent influ ence in too many other localities. The President has issued a proclamation reoommending that Thursday, the 24 th of November next, be observed by the people of the United States as a day of general thanksgiving for the manifold blessings that we, as a nation, have enjoyed during the past year. Certainly, in view of the fearful con flict now raging in Europe, the people of the United States have good cause to give thanks to the Almighty that they have been spared from the devastations of war, that the arts of peace have prospered, and that they have been blessed with bountiful harvests and many other evidences of Divine favor. During the past year more has been done than at any other period since the close of our civil war to obliterate the evil emotions ex cited by that conflict, and the nation now is fast assuming such a position that it can ad- vanoe, with ecarcely a fear of interruption, in the great labor of subduing the fertile terri tory that has been given it as its portion, and in perfecting the great political system that Las already become an object of admiration and wonder to the whole world. . Thanksgiv ing day, from being a Puritan protest against Christmas, has become a great non sectarian religious festival, . in which all the innumerable varieties of religious beliefs can unite upon a common Is&su and return tnanks tor benefits that all have enjoyed; and it is proper for the Presi dent to designate a day of general thanks giving, as 'it is for the people to observe it with unanimity in the spirit that the procla mation indicates when it says that "it be hooves a people sensible of their dependence on the Almighty publicly and oolUctively to acknowledge their gratitude for His favor and mercies, and humbly beseech for their continuance."
