Every lebool boy recollects tho elaborateness of thai signature JOHN HANCOCK writ ton much bolder than the name of any othor signer. When inquired of by some of bin friends why he made bia mark bo oonepieoouB on that piooo of parchment, ho answored : "Well, King Georgo tho III has offered tho Indians, and all other frco-booturs, a reward of t5,000 for tho acalp of every man who would put his name to this documont. There'a mine aa bold as 1 can write it JOHN HANCOCK. Our nominee is a grandson of that bold signor of tho Declaration of Independence. Tho British King nov'er succeeded in secur ing the acalp of a aingle signer to that sacred document. Bad Health. Wa regret to learn that Senator Don Cameron's health is so much nndermindod as to cause his friends serious apprehension, and only an ontiro abstinence from all excito mont or mental strain, he is advisod, will assuro his restoration. He is un der the care of a physician and has dropped everything but attention to his nervous condition. Although we do not subscribe to the political views of fienator Cameron, bis enorgy and vigor is worthy of imitation by both young and old, and tho more men of his clans tho State cultivates, the lon ger tho Commonwealth and lroo insti tutions will Inst. Ho is no drone in Bociety, nor tho emblem of a tramp. If a Radical is to represent tho Ky stono Stato at Washington, wo prefer some man with a little snap in him. We cannot afford a drono, or a dead weight. Just Hold On. A oontomporary spikos a loyal gun in this way: "It should bo borno in mind by the Re publican brethren, in palliation of cen sure for Gen. Garfield's unsatisfactory letter, that ho had to fit tbe platform. That singlo condition was quito suffi cient to necessitate a failuro. Tho Chicago platform is all absurdities and incongruities. A party that puts into its declaration of principles an indorse ment of II r. Hayes' theory of civil sorvice reform, and then procoeds to nominate for Vice President the most conspicnons victim ot that alleged re form, has no right to criticise tbe in consistencies and evasions of its Presi dential candidate's letlor of accept ance." A rosiT. That notod Jewell, de lcatod for Governor, awhile Postmas ter Uoneral, then Plenipotentiary to Russia fur six months on a 117,000 salary, now Chairman of the Radical National Committoo, was closeted with Hayes on lual Friday. Tho meeting ol two such exceptional characters bodes no good lor tho country, Being both guilty of grand larceny, they need watching. In 1870, Clearfield county bad a population of 25,000, and Indiana coun ly 30,000. Now the former has 43,- 000, and the lattor 40 ,000. A gain of seventy per oont In the one, and only twclvo per cent, in the other. Don't fail tc read "The Hero of Gettysburg," on our first page. Col. Forney Las been, literally, a Major General in tbe Radical ranks tor ovor twenty yoars. Us knows what la go ing to happen. HA VIC Ah lillETQRICALai;sll. Tho idea moat prominent in Goneiul Garfield's letter of acceptance is tho duty ot the central authority towards citixens of tho Hcpublio, OT of tho States composing the Republic. Alluding to bis rcnuii'k under tlim head, and heartily commending nis views, one of his most curliest and able champions declurea that it is tho duty of tho Gen eral Government "to protect all citi tens in all their rights." And the samo organ finds its best reason for support ing General Garfield fn tho fact that holds and declares this opinion as to tbo obligations resting on tho central power. If this gushy rhetorlo moans any- .tliing at all, it means that wbonovor and wherever any right of a oiliaen la invaded, he must look lor rodross, not to the local authorities, not to tho ofllcors of his town, oity oounty or State, but to tbo oflioials of the Unitod States. Reduced to plain English, this absurd and nonsensical proposition Ih what Gon. Garfield's anti-Status rights dis sortation amounts to. Strip his docla ration ol their rhetorical drapery and put them before tbo ponplo naked, and neither Gen. Garfield nor any othor leader of his party would own or do tend tlit'in. When Gon. Garfield, or Eugene Hale, or any other anient Radical, his oyes in fine frenr.y rolling, bis arms plow ing great furrows through tho circum ambient air, roars out to a rural audi- onoo, "I have no respect for any gov ernment that will not protect every citir.cn in all his rights, in overy part of its domain," tbe orator thus ex claiming is playing tho part of a very small and contemptiblo demagogue. Gon. Garfield knows, ns docs ovory othor intelligent citizen, thut the cen tral authority, tho National Govern ment, is supremo in all tbo power dele gated to il by the States whon the Constitution was formed, and in all power thus delegated by tho amend ments. But Gen, Garfield and every other sensible man knows that tho pro tection ol citinoiis ia thoir rights was mainly left to tho Slates, and that for this purpose all tho mechanism of local government exists. If Gen. Garfield's neighbor woro to bo afllictcd by a raid on his hon roost or his shcep-pasturo, General Garfiold would not advise tho sufferer to go to tbo redorul oflicors for rodrcss of his wrong lor recovery of tho property or arrest of tho thieves. Gen. Garfiold would forget all his rbotorical flap- doodlo, and, coming down to common sense, would direct the victim to a Justice ol the Peaoe and a Ponstablo, the creatures of Stuto luw. If a murder, or a donon murdors, wero to occur in Gon. Garfield's neigh borhood, be would not think of calling on tho Federal authority to arroBt, try or punish tho murderers. Ho knows that the protection of citizens in. thoir rights, the rights of person and prop erty, and the protection of socioty at largo, i lea with the States, is the duty of local government. When the Democratic theory of Stales rights is fairly stated it is ap proved by the masses ot all parties. Wbon tho Republican theory of Fed- oral duty It denuded of rhetorical orna mentation, it becomos supremoly ab surd. No Democrat proposes any as sault on the supremacy of tho Nation in tho sphere of duty bolonglng to tho National authority. Bui all Democrats, and almost every body olse, hold that tho right of local solt-govornment, by State constitu tions, State Legislatures and tho ap pliances which they croato, is worth preserving and must be preserved. UtiDKriLiD PuBiTANisu. The Lan caster Intelligencer very appropriately remarks: "John G. Whittior's objoo tion to the Democratic party is tho supproBBion by "fraud and violonce ol the voto of the colored citixons of the Southern States." If Mr. Wbittier would fairly investigate the facts, In- Btoad of taking the malignant misrep resentations of partisan politicians, be would find thoro is a more real sup pression of tbo votes of citizens of Massachusetts and Rhodo Island than in Sonth Carolina or Louisiana, where the reign oi law and order and froo franchise has been' contemporaneous with Democratic Stato Government. If such Ihwb as govorn in Now Eng land woro enforced against the negro in tbo South, ho would be virtually dis franchised ; but it baa always bocn characteristic of Now England philan- throphy that it strained at gnats be low Mason and Dixon's line, and swal lowed camels In Puritan land." Radical Jiwills. It seems thut Gurficld, tho Radical nominee for Presi dent, is not tho only "crooked stick" our opponents havo on band. Their now Chairman, Jewell, who was look od upon as a virgin in the affairs of the world, is about aa badly aoiled as tbe "Christian Statesman" aforesaid. We lourn from an exchango that the somowhat well-known authoress of a work on life In St. Petersburg, which was published a year or so ago al Brussols, and suppressed by tho polico in Paris, has prepared for publication an account of tbo connection of Mr. Jewell, while Minislor in Russia with the too celebrated affair of the Grand Duke Nicholas and the Empress' jew els which will be road with groat In terest at the prosont time. Tho ar chives of the Bints department con tain some curious information on the samo subjoct, which may see the light before the closo of the, Presidential campaign. "Frki Ships." Radical organs are somewhat disturbed ovor this freo ship business. We do not know exactly why It should bo so, because the only "tree" shipping wo have known in our time was that of Hayes, Tilden'a dep. oty, furnishing Grant and bis butties with a vessel and rations to sail around the world for the purpose of getting np "booms." .And behold, tbe simple- minded, verdant, guileless Garfield got away With the honors that the afore said was entitled too. His Last ErroRT.-Mr, Hbakespere to Blaine and Grant : "Farewell, a long farewell, to all your greatness I This ia the state ol man, to-day he puts forth the tender loaves ot hope, to morrow blossoms, and bt.ars his blushing hon ors thick upon him: The third day oomos A frost, a killing frost ; and, when he thinks, good easy man, full sorely hi greater is a ripening,, nips his root, and then he falls."

At 11 o'clock tho National and Con gressional Committees visited Mr. Til den. The lormor wero entertained at the Manhattan Club. Gen. Hancock called upon Mr. English at tbo Fifth Avonue hotel.

Twenty-four years ago, Jno. W. Forney led tho Democrats of Pennsylvania to victory. Judging from tho following telcgrum received last night by Daniel Dougherty, of Philadelphia, while he was dining with a party of trionds at tbo Qucon City Club, ho wants to come homo. It in dicates tho temper ot thousands of Ropublicans in Pennsylvania: "1 con gratulate yon, dear old triend, on your groat speech in favor ol tho living horo of Gettysburg "tbo Murat of Penn sylvania" whose nomination at Cin cinnati for Prosidont will deliver this great Commonwealth from tho terrible curse that bas polluted its fair fame, destroyod tbo hope of tho young men, and onricbod its insolent politicians. It will be welcome to hundreds of tbous andsof Republicans who regard Grant's sacrifice at Chicago as tho utispeakablo ingratitude of tho ago, and it will con solidate North and South in tho holy bonds of fraternal pcaco and prosper ity." "John W. Fornfv." Tumiilino IN. They can't bo held back. In Now York Gon. Patrick II. Jones, Postmaster if that city under Gonoral Grant, announcos himself for Hancock.

Peterson, tho well known author, Dr. Mugoon, a promi nent Baptist clergyman, Mr. Dennot, ot the famous Towor Ball clothing houso, and Charles Wistar, ol Gorman town, a leading Republican, aro an nounced as supporters of Hancock. Murk Comfort We notice by our exchanges that tho Pennsylvania Rail road Company has made arrangements for tho erection of houses tor the train men at the stations where they bnvo to change and wait ovor Jersey City, Philadelphia, Columbia, Harriaburg, Altoona and Pittsburgh. They will con tain reading-rooms, bath-rooms with hot and cold water, dormitories nnd cloaols, and they will be so managed by tho ocal oflioials as to be kept in ordor and yot be brought into gonoral use by the trainsmcn. This Is a com mondablo provision and worthy of imi tation by other great corporations. A Good Tiiino. Garfield, in his let ter of acceptance, injects this into it: "My opinions are on record among tho publiBhed proceedings of Congress." That is truo, but bo should have made somo mention ol tho Crodit Mobilier report by the Poland Committee and the DoGolyor affair. He is, without doubt, tho dirtiest nominee that was over offered to the people by any par ty; and hi seems to pride in his shame ful record, - j. Hi Had tooo. TheChamborsburg Spirit remarks : "It is amusing to bear somo ol the Republican papers talk, with gigantic assurance, of tho case with which Mr. Hayes could have been elected this time bad he 'consent ed' tb be a candidato.

And tho lan guage is exceedingly chaste arid origi nal, especially that in reference to the now kind ot sausage. ... ' But tho seiitiineut of tho article is discouraging. Wbon evon the great ajiostlo of tho "bloody shirt," James G.

It is a notable fuel that the nnti-robel howl gooa up, not from tho brave sol diors who met tho men (if the South on many a bloody batllo-flcld, but from the cowardly stay at-bomos, who do not seem capable of understanding that u peoplo who wero bravo enough to take tbo sword to accomplish their object, uro too bravo to resort to cow ardly intrigue lo accomplish tho sume thing.

This case, with a number or others arising from those contracts, went to tho hupromo Court of tbo Lnitod States, and Judgo Swayne, delivering tne opinion ol tho (Jourt in iturke vs. Child, thus deciding all the cases, says. inter alia : "The ae-roement with Gon Garfield, a member of Congross, to pay him 15,000 as a contingent lee for procuring a contract, which was itself made to depend upon a futuro appro priation, could only como from a Com. miltce of which ha was Chairman, was a salo of official influence, which no veil can cover against tho plainest principals ot publio policy.

Honor A- Prvor expressing his confi dence and suiirjfuclion ut the nomina tion of General lluifcock by the Cin cinnati Convention : lint theniiocittl cry of tlio Repuhli- cana is that Hancock is tho nominee of the south, and that tho "Rebel Briga diers" want lo muk him President for somo end inconsistent with the iuter esia and integrity ol tho I'liion. If, indeed, the peoplo of the South cherish any sinister design aguinsl the I'nioii, surely they have selected the lust in strument on eurtlt for the consumma tion of their purpose, in a mun whose life baa been an avistaoy ot passionate devotion to tbo Union, and whose in flexible will no powor can wrest from tho rectitude of its aim. Bul the South harbors no such design ; and the nomination of Hancock by the dele gates lrom the South was mount as a pledge of their fidelity to tho Union. Hancock was not tbe preference of the Southern peoplo tor President. Their choico unanimous nml enthusi asticwas Bayard, of Delaware. How, then, came tlw Southern del ogatus to 'proffer Hancock as the tan didnte of tho Democracy 1 I will tell you, and mark well the significance of tbo tact: Since tbe closo of tho war tho Republican parly in tbe North, for purposes ut party aggrandisement, havo persisted, contrary to fact, con trary to truth, in representing tho Southern poople as enemies still of the Union, and aa cherishing yet the ex ploded dogma ot socosaion as a tenet of tho stales rights creed. In vain bavo tho Southern peoplo endeavored to vindicate their patriotism by pro. testation anil acts of loyal devotion to the Union. Hitherto, in overy election, it has suffered for the defeat of tho Democracy that tho "Bloody Shirt" was waved by stalwart arms, and fall ricatcd "outrages" propagated by Re publican papers. So, at Cincinnati, tbo Southern delegates said : "You may impute to us hostility to lb Union, but we will refute tho ca lumnious accusation by selling as sen tinel over the Union the vigilant and unconquerable hero of tho Union. You may impute to us tho mischievous horusy of Stato sovereignty involving tho right of Becessien. Now, wo will disprove tho charge by nominating lor the Presidency, a man educated by the General Government, and taught Iho supremacy ot the Nation as tho first and fundamental rulo ot political faith, a man who holds his commission from tbe Federal Government ; who gets his subsistanco lrom the federal Government, tor whom no career is open but in the sorvico of tho' Federal Government, who knows no other ob ject ot fealty than the Federal Aug a man, in short, whose every interest binds him to the support of the Union by the most intimate and indisputable ties." "You say wo aro still unrecon cilod to the North, and that iu our hearts still burns the secret flamo ot soctionul animosity; then, to repel the reproach, wo tako to our bosom tho man from whom wo sustained the se verest blows in our Confederate strug gle the man who arrested our retreat at Williamsburg; who chocked our pursuit at rniHcrs rami; who hurled our assaulting columns from tho height ol Gettysburg; who drenched tbo soil of tho South with the best blood of the South ; tho man who smote our ill starred Confederacy to the ground." Thus, in nominating Hancock for the presidency the Southern poople makn a sacrificial offering of every principle and of every prejudice inimi cal to tbo Union and proclaim, by an act that none but tho tool or knave will gainsay, that they renounce ovory sectional lecling or ambition, and are for tho Union, ono and indivisible, now and forever. Our adversaries are in the right ; in this canvass the interests ot tho Union are imperiled. Bul by whom? Not by the parly which rallies around the horo of iho Union ; not by the Democ racy, whose party is commensurate with the limits of tho Union, and who speak tha same patnotio accents from Maine to Texas ; not by tbe Democra cy whoso gospol is "Peace on oarth. good will to men," and who would still overy soctional murmur; nor by the Democracy, who, by tho preva lence of a spirit of fraternal confidence and affection throughout the land, would bind tbe Union togotber by tics moro enduring and indissoluablo than the letters ot a military repression by identity ef interests, by unity of tooling, cy the Fellowship ol a saorod brotherhood comprehending all claases and all scotions within tho fold of it endearing embrace If, indeed, the Union be in jeopardy, it is endangered by the Republican party tho party who still funs the flame of sectional fury who, by ap peals to angry passions and ungener ous auspicious, would exasperate tho poople of tho North against tho poople of Iho South who, by systematic in justice and prosocution, would repel the proflered afflictions of tho South, and drivo them, in despair, upon some policy as hurtful to you as fatal to themselves, Tho Democratic party is tbo party of tho Union ; and now, as heretofore, Hancock leads tho Union column, and now, as heretofore, whon Hancock led tho Union column, it will suffer licit Iter repulse nor defeat. And so, fellow Democrats, I finish as I bogan. We aro going to win it bo causo the hour's come, and the man I Applauso. , Probabilities.

Nobody need borrow any trouble about tho way of counting these votes. Thoy will be counted by tho two Housoj of Con gress, according to the Constitution. No Kloctoral Commission will interfere.

Tho Springfield Republican sternly reprovos Goncral Garfield because he did not in his letter of acceptance, "re pair Iho insult offered by tho Chicago Convention to Mr. Hayes" when that Convention sclocted Arthur to ridout tho rear of tho ticket. Tho Spring field admirer of Mr. Hayes remarks that "Candidate Gnrfield has allowed hiinBcll to be overborne by the shoit sighted polit y of trimming in politics. Weuk discretion is not the better part of valor for a man in his position." That may bo true, but lliero is room for a doubt as to whether it would have bocn profilublo for Gen. Garfield to further alienate tho stalwarts by antagonir.ing their views. Tho fact is, this unhappy candidate is in a position where ho can't move ut nil without damaging his already sufficiently gloomy chances. Tho factions which no is expectod to conciliate and har monize aro irrcconcilublo in their hos tility. Tho Administration men de test tho stalwart and abuse tho ma chine. Messrs. Hayes and Schurr, and thoir school)! sentimentalists, are as cordially despised by tho stalwart. There can novcr bo a unification ot such clans. They may patch up a truce later in the canvass, but there will bo no heart, no sincerity, no en thusiasm in thoir work. It. will be cold, formal, mechanical. Thoy can't attract the independent voters. They can't draw the floating voto tho voto that goes with tho sido that has most confidence and onthnsiasm, and which constitute the controlling influence in moro than ono closo State. It may not seem like a respectful allusion to any portion of the aovorcign people, but it is a fact, novcrlholoss, that close elections are ofton decided by a class of men whoso only desire is to he on the winning sido.
