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
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

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

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.

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."

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

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.

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

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.
