Fraudulent Democratic tickets are said to be in circulation elsewhere in the State ami they may be here. Look rtut for them and let no one be deceived. GEORGIA, it is estimated, has rai*cd this year thirty million bushels of corn, eight million bushels of oats and five million bushels of wheat which is the largest crop of grain ever raised iu one year in the State. WE have not seen it announced that Hubbell andjCooper Imveyet levied an assessment upon the physicians and attendants of the late President. This is a seriou* oversight as well as a seri ous loss to the campaign fund. W E may take an affectionate fare well of the Stalwart bosses and ma chine politicians this week. The De mocracy and Independent Republican* wilj attend the funeral and bury the corrupt carcasses out of sight n,i*t aeek. PREHIDRNT AIITIU R has issued a a proclamation setting apart day tbe 30th of November, as a day of public thanksgiving. We have much to be thankful for and and much for humiliation, and while attesting gratitude to the sovereign Ruler of all for all hit rich blessings to our com mon country, it might not be amiss to invoke interposition in favor of hones ty in public office as well as iu public Itnd private iuteggtv. k * ' '"WB 4*L .**4.

Domocruts Don't Scare. < )ur Republican contemporary ilown ! street lias taken up the old scare of a j "Democratic Victory" destroying the industries of Centre county. I hat | kind of foolish twaddle hits been too often repealed to have any effect now. As well might our neighbor say that , because the Democratic county tick et was elected last fall business should stop. We live under Democratic rule in this county all the time and our I husiuess industries go on unchecked [ and unharmed. The governor of this State will have no more to do with legislating on the tariff than have our county officers. Not one whit more. Hut our neighbor may be impressed with the suggestions of Secretary Col - gcr that valuations had fallen off n hundred million since the Ohioelec lion, which suggestions wi re proven the silliest nonsense three days after their utterance. If values had a temporary depression, it is by no means a case of unusual occurrence. Hut there were more sensible solution for it than the result of the Ohio dec t ion, and among these might be classed tlie sb a k given to the whole country by the fraud and forgery used to j to make Folger's nomination for gov ernor of New York, in which fraud tl e whole national administration was in.- j plicated. Couple to this the endorse ment of the Hepudiators of Virginia by the administratoin and you ha\e cause for shrinkages in values. If two hundred men wire discharge ei from the Hciota mines ns the He- ; fiub/irnn says, it is safe to say they i were Democrats and in all probability discharged because tin y could not be counted to vote the stalwnrt ticket There are thousands of laboring men who would be delighted at a consider able tall in the necessaries of life. Living is nearly ns high now ns dur ing the war, and wages are as low as they were during the late panic. Whose fault is thi? The Republi cans. They have had supreme \ control and claim credit for all good, they must also shoulder the evil. They have oppressed labor beyond endur ance and are answerable for the strikis iy the high prices creutcd on every necesary of life and the low wages allowed him for his toil. No, no, honest, Worthy lnlsiring men can no longer trust these howlers aliout the (he tariff and bu-inc*, in connection with the election of a governor of !'i ritisylvarin, That question they can properly ami safely have to the Hon. ANDREW (j. ('CUTIS who will have cognizance of the subject in the National legislature. He took good r are of their interests last winter and will do so again. Ami we trust that no one will be carried away by the present senseless business cry of the demagogue. The Democratic party always was and always will he the la boring man's friend. Stand by it. It will win. Yon have adhered to its fortunes in adversity, stand by it now when it is afniut to grasp the power to give relief from the oppressive bur dens of taxation which rest upon you so heavily through Republican rule. TllF. Rosses it appear* have their agents travelling in different parts of the Htate to convince Irishmen and Catholics that General Heaver i their especial friend and that the lilieration of Ireland nnd the safety of the church depends upon the success of the Cam eron*. It is not forgotten that these men who are now held up by travelling henchmen as the friends of Irishmen were only a few years ago the leaders of a Know-Nothing crusade against the Catholic religion.

Great efforts nre being made by the | I Kf|)Ul>l icniim to induce Democrats to cut the nominees on* the Democratic ! legislative tirk t in li<>|kh of electing j Daniel Khoads, uncut' the Republican i candidate*.

Pnttteon'a Work Mr. i'allisou's qualification* for gov ernor are eminent, says the Harris burg Patriot. His record shows that His record as controller of the city of Philadelphia is constantly referred to j in n gcncal way, but it is interesting occasionally to look into the details and see just exactly what lie did do The more closely hi. work i* inspected the iqore admiration for the rr.nn is i excited. In 1*77 Mr. I'altison was elected controller of Philadelphia. He did bis work so well that in lWt he wa re-n<-minal(d and relected. In \*~ H Mr. i'altison's methods of ad minitrnlion were first put to tet Again-t the former average yearly i increase in the city debt of 93,622,- 400, Mr. Paltison's andministratiou -bow an average decrease ol 81 ,'2lO, 7-m- a dilii renee in favor of the Pat- ' tison system, and to the advantage of \ the taxpayers, of 94,860,14-1 per an. num. nearly 8- r a year in the pockets | of every man, woman and child in the city of Philadelphia, for directly and Indirectly every c la* of people feel i the burden of increased eitv debt and expenses. Rut not only is the superior method of Pattisnn's administration iP i lust rated by the decrease of the city , debt. The department cxp< nets have j gone down from $*,184,061.20 to 80,- ' 883,326.02 a reduction per annum of 91,301,634,28 and the tax levy is re- i ] duccd from 92-20 to 81.80, a reduction of the annual burden on property of I 40 cents on every 910<) of valuation, a lienefU to owner ami reuter. making real estate more valuable while at the same time it lightens the burdens of' the poor and diminishes the expenses of the business man. Prior to Patti. I son's term one-fifth of the city taxes ( were uncollected and went into the j hands of the delinquent collectors. i Isist year only 8 per cent of the oily j taxes were uncollected a gain of twelve percent, over the days of riug rule. It was these reforms which en abled the controller to say in his last annual report: " The burdens of the taxpayers are being lightened,increas ed encouragement is given for the cm , ployment of capital within iu its lint i its, and an auspicious beginniog has been made in freeing the second city in the Union in population and the first in industrial, from taxation for , indebtedness." This is precisely th e / sort of a man that is needed at the head of the Bute government and this i the sort of a man the people propose to put there. • € W " -'.yHfc Democratic Ticket.

KKIFKB, tha M Parliamentary hog," made a speech at Harrisburgon Wed nesday last in fkvor of Ham Barr for Congrew. It is eaid to have been a tame affair, whether from the M hog gish character of the speaker or waning interest in the Stalwart cause or both combined, is uncertain. % NO. Democrata !

For thi* purpose let conveyances be provided, ihe elective franchise its a great privilege and its exercise is a great duty. lA- t no one for BDV cause be deprived of it. We have.no doubt of the election of Mr. Pattiaon the Democratic reform candidate for gov ernor, with the entire Democratic tick et, but we most not fail in duty. The triumph in favor of reform and hon est government should be marked and emphatic and it will be effectual and lasting. Now is the time to act, let no honest man waver or Ik- indiffer ent to the great occason. The " Coeorkii Citizk.v'' i.-nn In dependent Republican newspaper pub lished in Pittsburgh, owned and edited by colored men and e*• the senti ments ot freemen. In a recent issue it says " The Republican party don't own the negro any more than they do the German. The Degro owes the Re publican nothing, they gave us the right of suffrage it is true, hut we paid them when we '-oted for Grant in 186* and 1872; we more than squared the account when we voted for the faith less Hayes in 1876 and we gave them compound interest when we cast our votes for Jnmes A. Garfield in 1880. If the devil and a stalwart were run. ning for office we would cast our votes for his Fatanic majesty believing that the management of affairs would l<e more safe in his hands than in the hands of a disciple of Guiteau." At.t.lhe great Republican statesmen i invited by Cooper and announced to sfs-ak for the Carneroo machine ticket have sent their regrets, except Hale,of Maine, who orated in I'hilad,lpbialhe other day on th<- tariff.
