-3" - -t. --'dJs : Lancaster imtelltgewet. MONDAY EVENING. 8BPT. 6, 1880. An Old-Time RepaMIcaa. One of the ablest and purest and, in all respects, best men that the Republican party of this country has had in its ranks and lest from them is Lyman Trumbull, of Illinois. Like Greeley and Seward and Chase and Sumner, he was one of its patriarchs, and like them he gave voice te the indignantpretests of thousands of its members against its degradation by un principled thieves and time-serving politi cians. He left it because he considered it hopelessly corrupt, and he embraced Democracy, net because of any past sym pathy with it, but because he saw only in the triumph of its organization any hope for the country. Slander and malice have invented no apology for his course that reflects upon his integrity or his pa triotism, nor eveu upon his geed temper. He is conceded te be a pure and upright man. What he says should have weight with his old party friends and that his example is moving some of them, maybe inferred from the altogether hopeful contest making by the Democracy of Illi . neis with Trumbull at the head of their ticket. Mr. Trumbull in a recent speech re minds his old party friends that without Democratic soldiers no war would have .been successfully carried en against the Seuth ; without Democratic votes the thirteenth constitutional amendment would net have been passed; that the Democracy alone te-day are a truly na tional party, and that their candidates have the Jcfferseniuu qualities for office. Mr. Trumbull speaks from the head and the heart. He is with us by the exercise of his judgment no less than by the premptings of his feelings. The logic of events compels him as well as the premptings of his patriotism. Where tlicy lead it is net likely that men like him will fear te fellow because of Legan, and Cameren, and Ccssna,and that kind, who, when Trumbull was fighting the battles of freedom, were knotting whip crackers for the slave-driver's lash. Eloquent Figures. It is a very remarkable showing that Ave Democratic states of what the Repub licans se scornfully and bitterly call the solid Seuth and which can contribute only 43 electoral votes te the election of a Dem ocratic president, sent mere Union troops te the front than did some thirteen Northern states which must give their whole GO electoral votes' te any Republi can nominee who hopes" te be elected. Strange as it may appear (he Democratic state of Missouri sent mere troops te the war te fight for a restoration of the Union than did the Republican states of New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhede Is land, Minnesota, Kansas, California, Colerado, Nebraska, Oregon and Ne vada, though they have 42 Republican electoral voles te Missouri's 15 Demo cratic electors. Ne less remarkable is the fact that of the four million Democratic voters in this country scarcely a million are ledged in the states which were in rebellion and ever three millions are in the states which remained te put down the rebel lion. In the great belt of central states stretching from Connecticut te the Mis sissippi river, with half the population of the country, the backbone of its busi ness interest, Democratic voters are in a majority. Year after year in this section the Democrats have increased their vote until the gap is entirely covered and the opposition is behind. These figures have an eloquence that eulsieaks stump ora tors. They settle and silence the clamor about the solid Seuth. They prove that the capital as well as the laber, the brain and sinew, the hope and confidence of the country, the interests of all sections, arc with the Democratic party. The Philadelphia grand jury inveighs most bitterly against the office of recor der in that city, and the manner in which it is administered, declaring that the position, which was established against the pretests of the business men, is run in such a manner that its incum bent ought te be indicted. Ne necessity exists for it, and it proves te be just what it was predicted that it would become a place for meusing politicians te grew fat at the public expense. It was established te pension Quay, but as he saw a wider field of operations utthe head of the par. dening beard and as a candidate for United States senator, he quietly give it ever te a congenial friend who, most likely, divides with him. The character of this office, and the nefarious means by which it was established, are characteris tic of Republican methods in this state. These methods aim persistently at build ing up a party organization at the ex pense of the public, and whenever ex isting offices fail te go around new ones are created for the pensioned families. Of these methods Quay is the animating genius. His fertile brain devises them and his conscienceless boldness executes them. His reward is te be a seat in the United States Senate and Dcmuth is in structed te vote for him. It is hardly worth while for the New Yerk Herald te gravely argue that there is no danger of the relel debt, indemnity for slaves, or pensions for Confederate soldiers being paid; for, as it says: "When a Republican stump speaker threatens his hearers with the payment of rebel claims, these who arc net abso lutely ignorant knew that he is attempt ing a gross deceit; for they knew that under our constitution the people never surrender themselves or their rights and property into the hands of any party. Net one of them believes in this silly stuff, which yet is a staple of the Repub lican canvass. Every man outside of a madhouse knows that the Democrats pay taxes, own government bends and arc concerned for the credit and prosper ity of the country as well as the Repub licans." The intelligent people of the country pretty well knew by this time that it is only a knave or a feel who utters such twaddle as the Herald se ef fectively ridicules, and in these com munities where knaves and feels control the public judgment they would net believe though one were sent from the dead. .When Republican politicians are moved te lie te help along their cause, they would show their wisdom selecting a story calculated te answer their pur pur e Tfii-iniiv nvs fn sav that Cen- PTPssman Beltzhoover sai.dthat ex-reeei rmmMmpn arnet disnesrf te increase LUC JJCliaiUU iMM , wiv - would only affect the rebel ceu.Cf men, who are net running for anything " .v, a . e,w;ii section, and when new Cengrc.

I "" T7TT , I It was supposed te be uan scnurz niw " put in" Mr. Hayes's letter of accep tance that " public officers shluld give their whole time te the government and the people." With Hayes and Evarts and Schurz and Sherman and Devens and Thompson all away from duty, and most of them en the stump, it is no wonder that foreign ministers feel encouraged te disregard Mr. Hayes's talk, and te come home te leek after their chances of " stay- mg en. 55 A uELiAiiLK gentleman, net a parti san, who luis recently traveled through West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina and Seuth Carolina, reports that the only outrage he saw or heard of was negrees stoning a Hancock parade in Wilming ton, N. C. The Examiner is troubled because the Democrats have net made war en the Camerons in this campaign yet. We believe it is the Cameren henchman Quay who is running for United States senator this year. He will be quite as geed game in due season as the Cameren birds. PERSONAL. Judge Black visited Gen. Hancock en Saturday. lie also called en Mr. Tilden. Postmaster-General Key left Washing ton without paying his 2 per cent, cam paign assessment, or otherwise contribut ing te the fund. Considering that the party took him up and festered him, and finally gave him a snug berth for life, this oversight is regarded as a very small and ungrateful piece of business. The Chester County papers arc hoetin' at the late Cel F. C. Hoetkx because he is handing around a circular asking for a 'Complimentary congressional nomina tion" The circular says : "The effect of obtaining the nomination would be two fold. It would give te me a fair oppor tunity of securing the nomination in two years if I then desired it, or it would place mc in a fine position, when connected with my state chairmanship te obtain some im portant appointment from General Garlield in the event of his election." Den.v Yeung, the favorite daughter of the great Mermen apostle, and one of the seven children who prosecuted te success ful issue the suit against his estate, is neur ishing -around Chicago and an enthusiastic reporter describes her as " a particularly handsome aud attractive looking woman, with a complexion of great beauty, abun dant golden hair, and a set of the most perfect teeth, which shone like pearls when she smiled. She was dressed in ex tremely geed taste in a fashionably made dress of black brocade and satin, with berdcrlings of crimson satin. Her white hands displayed several elegant aud cost ly rings, and her shapely arm was .set oil" te geed advantage by the lich lace of her short elbow sleeves. " OIllTUARY. The Late Ce!. Noyes. Hen. AmesC. Noyes, ex-State Treasurer of Pennsylvania, was stricken with para lysis en Friday night at his home at West West pert, Clinten county, and died live minutes before midnight. Colonel Noyes was a native of New Hampshire, where his an cestors, who were of Scotch-Irish descent, resided from the earliest settlement of the state. He was born in G rat ten county, N. II., September 17, 1818, and at the time of his death lacked thir teen days of being 62 years old. His father was a fanner and he spent his youth in the same pursuit. He came te Pennsylvania in 1847, locating first at Em porium and afterwards settling at West West pert, where he continued te lire till his death. He served for several terms in the Legislature and was often prominently spoken of for governor, and at the Demo cratic state convention of 1875 was ballot ed for for the nomination. It was at the time that a compromise was effected by the nomination of Judge Pershing. In 1877 Colonel Noyes was nominated by the Democrats for state treasurer and elected ever William B. Hart by a major ity of 9,901. He retired from the treasurer's office en the 3d of May last and has since given attention te his pri vate businscs. Colonel Noyes was a man of large frame, stout and vigorous, and had enjoyed geed health until within a few years, when he began te show signs of decline. A couple of years age he spent a few weeks at Grcenbriar White Sulphur springs, West Virginia, and derived great benelit from the baths and use et the water. When he retired from the state treasury last spring he was in geed health and continued se until recently, when he was threatened with paralysis, which final ly resulted in a fatal attack en Friday night and his stout frame succumbed te the malady about midnight. Wouldn't Ueine te Time. Ex Candidate Gricst's Inquirer. The Examiner suggests that it would be better te have a regular system of taxing office-holders yearly for the necessary campaign funds, than te collect all from candidates the year of their election. Perhaps se, but our neighbor would find it very often a little inconvenient te collect and then there would be no means of en forcing the request. As an illustration, we understand the collector of internal revenue of this district, whose annual compensation ameuuts te about $4,300,and who has his son about 17 years of age, drawing a clerk's salary from the govern ment of $50 iter month, was taxed last year by the Republican state committee te the amount of $50, but very kindly declined te pay a cent of it. Se we arc of the opinion that the method suggested by our neigh bor would net work. In the Sunny Seuth. Eastern Tennessee Sentinel. One of our most valuable exchanges, the Lancaster Lntelmgenceh, comes te us this week double its former size, and is new ene of the largest, as it was before, one of the best papers in the United States.

It was our pleasure, some years age, in the moun tains of Virginia, te become acquainted with one of the editors of this paper, Mr. Stcinman, and he is just our idea et an educated, social, pleasant gentleman, who is always sure te make you glad and sorry glad te meet him and sorry te part.

OsTiticn farming is one of the coming industries in California. If carried en properly it premises te be rcry profitable. A geed feather bird will produce from $30 te 125 worth of feathers every eight months, aud the breeding birds will nest four times a year, hatching te the pair en an average of twenty chicks each time, which arc vrevtli, if the old birds arc geed ones, $38 te $50 at two weeks old ; then, as they advance in age they also advance iu value. The cock bird docs nearly all tlie hatching, and can usually cover twenty, two eggs. AH above that number laid by the hen arc hatched iu an incubator; the period of the incubation is usually forty two days. One by one the campaign canards arc nailed. The Carlisle Herald, Tribune, Press, Juc.niiner, cl id enme genus have been publishing a letter purporting te come from Cengicssman Beltzhoover, con cerning which he tclcgaaphs te the Times: "I was absent from home when the letter purporting te have been written by mc te some unnamed person, stating that a pension bill could net be passed be cause the rebels in the llausc and Senate were opposed te pensions, appeared iu the Carlisle Herald and the Philadelphia Press, and I did net see a line of it until this morning. It is an infamous ibrgeiy. There was no occasion or necessity for such a letter and no reason why it should have been written." The September elections open te-day in Arkansas, where there is no contest en the State or local tickets. The Jewell-Weaver Republican-Greenback fusion, started with such iKmp iu Alabama, was also started 111 Arkansas ; nut as tne only visiuie re sults in Alabama was the extraction of parly funds from Jewell te be pocketed by Republicans and Greenback traders, Jew ell retired from the Arkansas partnership some weeks age, and that ended all oppo sition te the Democratic ticket.

Tun ninth quarterly report of the Penn sylvania beard of agriculture ter June, July and August is largely devoted te the report of the beard's chemist en the an alyses of the different fertilizers offered for sale in this state. Iu the crop reports for the year 1880 wheat is reported inferi or in quality te the crop of 1879 ; corn will far outdo la-it 3'car's crop ; twenty-eight counties show an increased acreage of eats, but en the whole the crop is less ; hay has b;cn generally light ; the early potatoes, though a light crop, were of exceptionally geed quality. There is no general lcpert en tobacco. Iu the special Lancaster county report it is ueticcd that barbed wire fences are being intrednced ; pests a red apart, and five wires ; cost of locust pests eighteen cents ; cost of fence for four-wire fence seventy-nine cents, and for five wires sevcuty-niuc cents per red of fence." Alse that this county falls off 8 per cent in fat cattle this year, and 6 per cent in poultry. The average yield of crops per acre is given as wheat 21, rye 22, eats 34, corn 53, potatoes 138, hay 2,100 pounds. The first prospect is generally excellent. Lancaster county premises 31 per cent increase in apples ever last year and 10 per cent in peaches. KtiRO'S I)AI. One II u ml red and Ten Victims.

A number of Republicans in New Yeik city who have declared their intention te vote for General Hancock, have formed the Republican Hancock and English cam paign club of the city and county of New Yerk.

The debauchcry of the party with which wc have affiliated for the past twenty years, has become se manifest te all geed aud true soldiers, without re gard te party ; te such an extent have the office-holders trampled upon the rights of the people ; the stench of impurity which pervades all departments of the national, state and city government, that a change in the administration of affairs is demanded and must be had te clean these Augean stables of the filth that has surrounded them.

The leaders of both sides have get down te business aud hard work iu Indiana, and the Republicans te-day openly confess, for the first time, that Chairmau Jewell has been utterly outgeneraled in Iudiana. They knew that Indiana is naturally a Democratic state; that it elected Hen dricks governor in 1872; that it gave 17, 000 Democratic majority in 1874 ; 5,50J in 187G, and 14,000 in 1878, and they new see the' vanity aud foil' of Jewell's "splendid dress parade" begun by him self in Indiana mere than two memths age and followed up by a lavish waste of money, parades, speeches and enforced enthusiasm long before the people were ready te take part in the contest. Assess ments aud double assessments en the office holders wcre called for aud poured into Iudiana before money could effect any lasting geed, while English sat calmly en bis bar'l " and waited for his opponents te exhaust themselves. Barnum slipped out te Indianapolis seen after Jewell had exhibited en the tree tops and told hew the state was te be carried with a hurrah, and none kuew that he came but English. They met, talked the battle ever, decided te let the Republicans ex haust their money and cnthusiasani, de vised the most complete system for reach ing every individual voter of the state by actual canvass, and decided te wait until three weeks before the election and then go in with all their resources. Ne money was scattered around for fireworks or parade; but the canvass was made as a matter of business by English, paid for out of his own pocket, and every weak voter and every weak point of the Republican line is before English te guide him iu put ting his reserve powers into the strujigle "where they will de the most geed." "' There is net auythiug like confi dence felt in Indiana new at' Republican headquarters. Twe weeks age Jewell was aglow with enthusiasm ever the easy victory he premised himself in the pivotal state ; but te-day he aud these about him regard Indiana as mere than doubtful, because they feel that they have wasted their resources and cannot new meet the Democratic assault that is certain te be made en the state. Anether new feature of the state contest that has been un expectedly developed since Barnum's late visit te Indianapolis, is a fierce, aggressive campaign against Judge Perter, putting him en the defensive by charges of gkess corruption as controller of the treasury. The charge has been worked up by ex-Dctcctive William P. Weed, ence chief of the secret service, and it makes out a plausible case against Con troller Perter for paying a fabricated and fraudulent claim, knowing it ti be such. It is net credited by Republicans, nor is it likely te be really credited by sensible Democrats ; but it puts Judge Perter at the great disadvantage of being en the defensive in his joint debate with Landers, and that is a reversal of the whole Repub lican policy of the Indiana campaign. The great distress in the Jewell committee new is becaust of the want of money. Enough aud mere than enough te meet all re quirements '.new has been wasted in Ala bama, Maine, Vermont, and in a premature display in Indiana, and new, when a large sum is needed, the contributions aud par tics subject te assessments are exhausted. And the new well-developed pregramme of the Democrats requires the Republicans net only te pour out money like water iu Indiana, but they must be prepared te meet a most desperate assault in Ohie, for Barnum means te make a systematic and exhaustive effort, backed with all the money that can be used effectively, te carry Ohie in October. This is an un expected and serious peril for Jewell's com mittee te meet, for th'iy must net allow Ohie te tall te a nominal majority, aud the less of the state in October would elect Han cock by a hurricane. The work of collect ing money for Ohie and Indraua will bc giu anew te-morrow and it will be pressed with desperate vigor, but the growing conviction among Republican contributors that Indiana is lest, and principally be cause of Republican waste and misman agement, will make responses reluctant aud net at all libera!. There will be a desperate battle in Indiana, notwithstand ing the disadvantages under which the Republicans must labor from this time out, but the belief is much mere general than it is expressed among the leaders that Indiana is lest te the Republicans, and that Ohie must be liberally supplied with money te save Garfield's own state.
