the drift of the Radical tide just now,

Bishop "Oil." Haven was the first man
to announce Grant for a third term.

Borie, Childs A Co. had hotter be on
the lookout.
Conoress. This body met again
last week at Washington, to resume
its duties of "tho long session." The
attendance ot membors is pretty full,
except the Senators and Radical mem
bors from Maine, who are absent for
the purposo ot covering up the oft
rupoated crimes tbey have committed
in the past, and for the purpose ot in
flaming the riotous element in that
Stale. It is all right to count out and
in, in Louisiana, on the part of the
Radicals, but it is a h 11 of a piece of
bnsinoss to do the samo thing in
Maine.
Declining. The third term and
Empire stock has declined wonderfully
since Grant and his gang turned op at
Philadelphia after bistwo years' tramp
around the world. There was too
much of the emetio in that dose for
sensible people to swallow. Oi those
who took it, two-thirds have thrown
it up, and are now sicker than ever.
The political taffy manufactured by
Babcock, Borie, Childs, Belknap k Co.,
does not sot well on the stomachs of
people who prefer Republio to an
Empire It may work all right with
the next generation, but not now.
Herb We IIayi Them. The Phil
adelphia Commonwealth, in alluding to
the rrcsidontiul question, remarks:
"Tildon a necessity." On the other
hand wo have such men as Babcock,
Borie, Childs A Co., proclaiming the fact
that Grant is "a necessity." now are
those extreme views to be reconciled 1
Our opinion is that there is not a man
living that is a "nocessity" for any
office in this country from President
down to Constable. Thore being thou
anda as well qualified to fill that po
sition as either of those "necessary
gentlemen," no ono shoild become so
royally endowed at once.
IIow is This? We notice that the
managers of the Maryland peniten
tiary lavo, during the past year, sup
ported the prisoners and paid twenty
thousand dollars (920,000) into the
Stale Treasury, Heroin our old Qua
ker Commonwealth, ur penitentiary
officials bavo drawn one bendred thou
sand dollars (1100,000) OUT OF THE
STATE TREASURY, and have drawn
a similar amount out of the several
County Treasuries. Now, why is our
pooitontiary sinking fund, and that
ot Maryland profitable investment
for the tax payers T Can anybody an

"Let 'er Be." An up-oountry friend

' LooiCAU Aootemporary in alluding
to the great fraud remarks: "Occa
sionally even the most idiolio oi Re
publican sheets stumbles on an import-
ant truth. One ot this class states
pregnant fact when It asserts that
"minority rule is only submitted to
temporarily in thisoountry for policy's
sake." The policy which indnoed the
majority who votod for Mr. Tilden in
1876 to submit to the inauguration of
his defeated competitor was a patriotic
purpose to save the country from civil
war. Mr. Hayes has labored effectu
ally to prove that the majority made
a mistake in thus quietly yielding to
unexampled wrong. His administra
tion, so far as he has personally dicta
ted or controlled It, has fulfilled the
promise of its criminal inception. Be
gotten in sin, it has brought forth ini
quity. Starting on the plane of fraud
he bas held it to the level ol hypocrisy.
And in so doing he has convinced
thousands ot the honest men who ' fer
policy's sake," and in the interest of
peace and order, submitted to the in.
famy of his induction into a stolen
office, that their patriotio devotion to
their country on that occasion was not
guided by sound reason."
A Keturnino Boarder's Luck.
We see it stated that Gov. Iloyt has
appointed Col. Stanley Woodward Ad-
ditional Law Judge for Luxerne coun
ty. Be is a son of Judge Woodward,
who was at one time President Judge
in this District, afterwards Judge ot
the Supremo Court, and the Demo
cratic nominee for Governor. The
Colonel, like bis lather, was always a
staunch Democrat until last Fall, when
out of "pure personal love for Col. Hoyt"
be electioneered and voted for him
in preference to Senator Dill, the nom
inee of bis own party. What bas just
happened explains the whole matter.
It is the Jonks-Sherman-Wells-Hayes

reward otherwise than being shot

Good for Bennett. The editor of
the New York Herald, who is an Irish
man, has this to say about the course
of Charles S. Farnell, the Irish agita
tor, who bas corns to our shores to re
tail the woes of Ireland. The editor
in question remarks ;

Parnell's course is just as infamous
aa that of member ot a quarrelsome
family, who ushers into tbs borne of a
peaceful neighbor and retails the short
comings and faults of the members of
bis own family. Who can approva of
such conduct r Remember, Nations
are made up of individuals, and what
ever ia offensive in the one sense is
equally so in the other.

Right. A Democratic exchange re
marks : "II tbs Democratic party is
not cleanhanded, It is no better than
the Republican. If it is not the guar
dian of theballot-lox and the champion
of honest elections, it is" a false pre
tense aud fraud. If It approves In
Maine what it denounces in Louisiana,
it is a hypocrite and cheat. When it
attains power in State, or city, or
country, by trickery, by device, by an
bit that defeats the will of the
electors, it sacrifices its good name
and influence for insubstantial results
that bring no profit and must inevita
bly bring great shame to Its doors.
Yes, and it they behave no better when
tbey got into power than the Radicals
have during the past, this "farse of a
Government," (as a certain Ridgwsr
Convention pronounoed it in 1869,)
ill not last long.
Bbeakiho Down. According to the
version of a eon temporary the Supreme
Court of the United 8tates ia breaking
down. The editor says : "The next
President, whoever be is, will proba
bly have the appointment of firs
Judgos of the United States Supremo
court, 'ins present Court is oomposed
of Waite, Swayna, Miller, 8trong,
Bradley, Hunt and Harlan, Republi
cans, and Clifford and Fiold, Demo
crats. Clifford is 76 years old, and is
fast declining. Bwarne is 75. and
though bale for that time of life, can
not expect in the nature of things to
bold oat much longer. Strong Is
turned ot 7t, and is dailv irrowinif
feeble. Bradley is C8. and neutr to
- . -
retire voluntarily when ba may get
the pension. Hunt is hopelessly bro.
ken down in health by paralysis."
A New Step. The Washington
r, or tbs 8th instsays : The most
important feature of the Senate pro
ceedings yesterday was the Introduc
tion of an amendment by Pendleton to

" THE SOLID SOUTH."
That is what troubles the Radical
leaders In these latter days. Tbey
murdered a million of their own race
and spent billiona of dollars to make it
solid for themselves through the en
franchisement of the ignorant slaves.
By the illegitimate use of the Army,
they succeeded for a while in robbing
and plundering tbe States In tbs South ;
but tbey bsv all drifted ont of their
bands because of the crimes they com
mitted, which even the ex-slave, ig
norant aa he was, could no longer
overlook for his own personal safety.
Tbe carpet-bagger proved to be as
mean a man as the most debased slave
trader of former days. Below we give
some official statistics takon from tbe
Philadelphia Record, which go to show
the numerical atatus oi the two races
ten years sgo; and as tho new Consus
will be taken this year, tho table oan
be used to compare with the newenunv
oration. Tb Jlecord says:
"In explaining to a correspondent,
recently, why tbe Southern States are
solidly Democratic, and why the color
line is not that of party demarcation,
tbe two or three States wherein tbs
colored population outnumbers the
white were prominently in mind. The
census reports of 1870 divided the col
ored and white population of tbe
Southern States as follows :

It will be observed that the white
populittion exceeded the colored in
twelve out of fifteen Southern States
ten years ago, and that in the aggre
gate the excess of the white popula
tion was 4,835,725. Since tbe Isst cen
sus it is well known that the tide of
wbito immigration to the Southorn
States bas been greater than ever be
fore, and that of colored emigration
from the Southern States has been lar
ger. It is fairly presumable, there-
lore, that the ratio ol white inbabl
tants to colored in those States has in.
creased considerably ; that the minor!'
ty of about two thousand In Louisiana
was long since overcome, and that
Mississippi and South Carolina are now
tbe only State in which the colored
population outnumbers the white. If
the color line were the line of demar
cation botween political parties in
these two States, and every male citl
sen of legal age should vote, South
Carolina would, ol oourso, be Republi
can ; but Mississippi would bavo been
doubtful, even prior to the exodus ex
citement, fur, in 1870, th colored
males of 21 yean and upward exceed
ed the white males only 5,142, as per
tbo census report This count includ
ed about 6,0u0 foreign-born males of
legal age not naturalized, a fact sign ifi
cant of the white immigration.
In commenting on elections ia the
South tbe majority of tbe white popula
tion in thirteen or fourteen out of the
fifteen Southern States is not taken in
to account by partisan critics. The
superior Intelligence and wealth, which
gave employment to the masses, and
which are regarded as all powerful in
many of tb Northern States, are not
expected to have any effect in more
Southern clime ; and while thousands
of intelligent while men in tb North
give no attention to politics and refuse
to vote, tbe colored people of tbe South,
tbe great proportion ol whom can
neither read nor write, are expected
not only to turn out to a man and vote
at every election, but to pay a poll tax
for the privilege of voting In opposi
tion to those who give them employ
ment and enable them to support their
families."
The Harry White Plan. The
Washington Post appropriately warns
Democratic Congressmen in this Way:
"The greatest danger that besets this
session of Congress is that it may add
another to tho long list oi National
outrages whioh have been perpetrated
nnder the bead of river and harbor ap
propriations. Tbe Republicans, hav
ing no responsibility for legislation, and
being much more than willing that
th Democracy should do unwise
things and make a bad record for tbe
National campaign, will be ready to
vote millions lor tb improvement of
Skedunk creek, Pogne's run, Lamesco
harbor or any other thing or place
where moisture is perceptible or damp
ness permanent. Nothing but a high
sense of publio duty and tb obligation
which each Democrat owe to his par
ty oan prevent the passage of such s
river and Harbor bill as no Democrat
will car to defend on tbe stump next
Summer.
It Wont Go. Assaulting Gibraltar
with snowballs or popguns would
evince as much sagacity as ths attempt
of Grant organ to bully the rofactory
Gorman Radicals into th support of
"the old man." Tb men who have
alienated themselves from the land of
their birth, tor th purpose of escaping
the rigor of an Empire, are pot going
to be cajoled into an Empire on this

Solved. Some two weeks ago tb
postmaster at Washington city died ;
and, of course, there was a great rash
of local politicians for the place. The
Groat Fraud was so annoyed by his
"loyal" clients that he actually absent
ed himself for bvaarly a week, and then
gave tb oflio to an Ohio man. This
incensed the locals, who demanded an
explanation lor giving tbla fat oflio to

BISMARCK BEFORE GRANT.
Sigiamuod Kautman, a leading Ger
man Republican ol Now York oity, has
Issued an address to the Germans, in
which bs saya, after speaking ol tho
political influence the German element
has obtained sino 1848 :
" Tbe agitation oi tbe third term is
a test of your adberenoe to Republican
principles. Tbe great General of the
war was as faithfully supported m the
fiold by you ss by the native American,
and afterwards when at th polls Gen
eral Grant reaped lb reward oi bis
victories, you csat your ballot aa one
man lor him, and again voted lor him
a second term. Precedent stops here,
and it is not pretended that the quali
ties oi GeneraLGranteilheraaacititen
or soldier so far excel those of Wash
ington as to require a third term to
accentuate them. It is urjod that we
need a strong Government in face of
tbe conclusive answer glyon by tbe
result of the civil war. Tho Govern
ment, as it then existed was strong
enough to defeat a combination which
from political causes, oan nevor obtain
again. It may be tbe political ma
chinists will, with the aid of Southern
dologatee representing no constituents,
re nominate Goneral Grant, but bis
chief olsim to that honor should prove
fatal to its being accorded to bim.
Under any and every form, not movtid
by any pretext however specious, let

mental pnnoiple of Republican Gov
ernment. Let the rulers continue to
ba the people. II we must have a
strong man and a strong Govern
ment, let ns return to Bismarck and
his Iron rule."
Tbe writer evidently wants tbe gen
uine article, If there ia to bo a change
in our form of Government. He pre
fers a master of tbe art of despotism,
instead of the Galena botch, who is
only a theorist in that line of Govern-
ment be so much loves, sinoe bo bas

is right ; give ns an export who will
surround himself with honest men if
we must have a change.

What a stupid man you are 1 The
troops are State soldiers, under the
control of tbe regular constituted
authorities of the Commonwealth of
Maine,who have a right to use thorn at
any time to preserve ths peace. The
damnable inflammatory speeches made
by Blaine and othor smaller Frye load
ers, who were cultivating mobs,
drove tbe State authorities to this end.
Had these men behaved aa becomes
honest citizens, no soldiers would have
been called for on the occasion.
More: The soldiers on guard do
not belong to the Uuited States army,
under command of the Ohio trio Hayes
and the Sherman brothers. The
proper authorities are handling tho
troops, and if tbey commit wrongs
they have no ono to blame lor it but
themselves. It is their own household
affair, and Pennsylvania or no other
State, or even tho Fedoral Govern
ment has no right to meddlo in tho
case, until tbey are requested by the
proper authorities to do so. It hasn't
been nocessary to call in General De
Trobriand yet, nor has a drunken or
fraudulent President boon appealed to.

Smoke This I The editor of the
Cbamborsburg Spirit, in alluding to
tbe "counting in" process, rulers to the
following local case in Franklin county:
"Many yoar) ago, Jaspor E. Brady was
a candidato for the Legislature in this
county, on the Whig ticket Among
tbe ballots oast at tbat election, in this
borough, was one for Jas. E. Brady.
That ballot was thrown out by the
unanimous agreement of the Election
Board, which consisted of two Whigs
and on Democrat. We never beard
any iuss made about it. But now that
a similar thing has been done by the
Governor and Council of Maine, it is
about all that the law-abiding people
of that State can do to keep the stal
wart Republicans from breaking out in
open and bloody rebellion. Tbo writer
of this article was standing near the
tablo when tb Brady vote was thrown
out, and saw it done. He never be
lieved that itought to bavo boen thrown
out But hundreds oi ballots similarly
defective have been thrown out by the
Ropublican Governor and Council in
Maine, in years past, and how any Re
publican in that Slate can mustor im
pudence enough to object to its being
done by a Democratic Governor, is
what puzslos us."
Good Results Tho Trump Act ol

A Shernan Monument. In Gen
eral Grant's trip through South Caro
lina he observed the blackened chim
ney of a half burnt bouse, and said:
"Tbat is one of General Sherman's
monuments." To this pointed rebuke
ol the Sherman method of making war
be added; "There was on private
house burned by my orders during tbe
war, and that was one where water
was refused to wounded soldiers. Jn
all my campaigns around Richmond
there was not a singlo house burned
except by accident or In violation of
orders." This attack on General Sher
man, the brother ot Grant's principal
rival ior tbo Presidency, has caused
considerable comment in Washington

THE CUR TIN- YOCl'M CON TES T
This case was uppermost in Con
gressional circles at Washington for
several days last week, Messrs. Krcbs
and Murray, of this county, raudo the
chief argument in the rasa. -Tb ed
itor of tbe Philadelphia Times, who
was present, thus states tbo case m a
Washington apodal to tbat journal on
the 8th iuat.:
The argument of tho contested elec
tion case of ex Governor Curlin against
Mr. Yocum began lust evening, was
continued to-night and will be conclud
ed to-morrow wghL ilrr Krcbs, a
prominent member of the Clearfield
bar, opened the caso last evening tor
lb contestant, and duvuted himself to
an exhaustive discussion of the legal
questions arising in and applicable to
tbe contest lie demonstrated that
under tbe undisputed evidence, the dis
tricts ot W oodward township and
Uouudale borough in Clearfield, and
tue township ol bite Deer in I inon,
must be rejected according to the de
cisions of tbe courts, and tbe ruling of
tbe House in tbe Covode-Foslvr, the
Meyers-Mofliit and numerous other
casus. His argument was strictly ton
fined to a presentation of tbo law and
precedents, as established in like cases.
both by judicial and legislative tribu
nals, and it was done with great clear
ness snd ability. Mr. Furst. a mom.
ber of tbe Kellofonta bar, was indis
posed last evening and be did little
more than deliver the Introductory of
ins argument in oenaii of locum. To
night he concluded, and was followed
on the same side by Mr. Murray, of
tbe Clearfield bar. Both presented the
causo ol the silting member as strung;
ly as tho facts and the law allowed
and exhibited careful preparation and
creditable ability. The argument will
be concluded to morrow evening by
Mr. Dlair, of Bollefonto, who will sum
up for Curtin. Besides being an able
and painstaking lawyer, be is a dovot-
ea personal menu ot tho ex-Governor,

also,
that, independent of tbo proven elec
tion of Curtin without resort to any
technical exclusion ol polls, the throe
districts for futal violence to law on
part of the election officers, whereby
his majority would be increased to five
or six hundred. As these points are
vital to the issuo tbey are earnestly
disputed by tbe counsel for Yocum,
and the desperation of their causo is
manliest when It is noted that they
attempt to classify illegal votes by the
statement ot soraepartisan who visited
the illegal voters, and who testified
that thuy told him the- bad voted for
Curtin. In olber cases, liko partisans
losiintMj mat illegal voters bsu declar
ed to tnem, colore mo election, their
intention to vote for Curtin, and in
other instances the still more far-fetch
cd and despernto expedient was re
sorted to of proving that tbo illegal
voters were Democrats and then as
suming that they must have voted for
Curtin. As no evidence as to bow a
disputed vote has boen cast but tbat
ot the voter himself can be accepted
bolore any tribunal, either judicial or
legislative, th entire fabric of the tes
timony in bobalf ot locum to classify
tbe illegal votes, falls to the ground as
utterly unworthy of consideration or
credit, xno court bos ever entertained
such an evasion of the easily attaina
ble and only satisfactory evidence as
to bow votes bave been cast, and reck
loss as hav boen partisan legislative
committees, I cannot recall an instance
in which a decision was based on such
a legal or equitable absurdity.
TOCO M '8 CASE PATAL TO B1HSELP,
The Curtin-Yocum con tost has a pe
culiar and important feature that is
undisputed by tho briels and artrs
ments on either side. It is admitted
by the tabulated statements ol the
vote as presented by the opposing
counsel, mat tne illegal voles proven
by the record, with their qualifications
aa electors and for whom tbey votod
unexplained by the evidence, numbers
ten or twonty tiraos the majority re
turned for tho sitting member. Tbe
counsel for Yocum show some two
thousand illegal voles which are not
proven to be qualified electors in the
test, and whose votes are left unclassi
fied for either candidate by tbe inves
ligation. Tbo counsel for Curtin show
not less than eight hundred such votes,
while the majority lor Yocnm was but
seventy-nine. It is tb undisputed
law, and as generally just as it is gen
erally accepted, that tbe proof of a
larger number of illegal votes than the
majority ot the certified member, with
out direct proof from the voters them
selves as to how tbey voted, invali
dates the certificate and unseats its
holder. While many other both legal
and equitable erounds for docidintr con
tested elections am often questioned,
it has never been disputed tbat an un
explained illegal vote larger than the
majority returned sets aside th cer
tificate and requires a new election, or
a reslatemont of the vote on well es
tablished legal rules, to decide wbo
bas tb better claim,
now ILLEOAL VOTIS MUST BE DIS
POSED or.
Three rules are plainly laid down by
the law to govorn such esses as justice
shall be best subserved, first, to re
state the vote by striking the illegal
vote ol each preoinct Iroin the majori
ty cast in such precinct. That is done
where there Is such evidence of inten
tional fraud on the part of tbe election
board as to justify the belief that all
the fraud should bo chanrcd to the
majority. This was the ruling of tho
rniiaoeipnia court In tbe Gibbona
Sboppard contest, with Judge Ludlow
dissenting, and it qualified Gibbons.
Second, to apportion the illegal voto
pro rata botween the candidates and
restate the votp by euhtrscting it from
ths oount. This I the eauilable rule
where a deliberate purpose to porpe
trate fraud on tho part of the eloction
board is not cloarly provon. On tho
rehearing of the Gibbons-Shoppsrd
caso this rule was applied and Gibbons
was unseated and Sboppard reinstated.
The third rule is to refer lbs eloction
back to the people an obviously Just
remedy when practicable. Under any
of these rule Curlin rould be tbo
Congressman, and one of them must
necessarily be adopted. Taking the
illegal votes from ths majority of tbe
several precincts, would give Curtin a
large majority ; apportioning the ille
gal votes pro rata to tho candidates,
would eloct him by several hundred,

Condensed Truth. The editor of
the Washington Herald takes a noted
demagogue right between the eves in
this way : Mr. John W. Forney in his
Progress, calls General Grant "tbe real
savior of the Republic." Whether this
is mere senility or the coarseness of
interested flattery, does not specially
concorn us ; but, coming just after the
1 bomas ceremonies, with its crowd ol
Generals most gorgeous, and ol officers
eliminiebjiiir, in mwmbovo ate tho revi
of rank is descended, it doe afford us
a text for a much needed discourse on
the inequality wilb which patriotism
is rewarded in tbia world, and for a
protest against the flagrant lie that
this Republio bas been savod by any
or all its Generals. When "tbe Repub
lio" get where only one man can save
it, it will no longer be worth saving.
All that is worth saving in this nation,
as distinguished from othor nations, do-
peuds, and always will depend, upon
tbe intelligence and patriotism ot tb
people ; when those fail, all is lost.
