It may well Le eaid that Ureckeoridgi wis not "watching over tbe border" for nothing; that acorea of tbe old Democratic leaders of the South were in cloae consultation with those of the Coo veotlon for a purpose, and that that ur. pose waa accomplished. - The platform as sgreed upon wis satis factory to partita differing aa widely aa the poles, but drawn by tbe skill of wily acd corrupt New York politicians, and made lUlceptitU of II fiiiny ccDitructioni n there are oppoalng vlows sod faotlooa. Ill WIS pronounced well done, end itt aulbore lauaea to tun atioa. aus nominations, tbOUgQ' seemingly . tbe result of com promise, were the legitimate fruits of the secret and visible presence ofAartttfl hadert. Horatio Sejmour'i cominttion was their quiet, artful work, determined upon by them from tbt first, and tbeir part played with a success worthy of a better eiuio. Tbey knew their mio and how to ret bim. The great Weat waa there with Us csodidatcs: but by the adroit - skill of Southern rebels and Eastern sym pathlzcrs, they were at the proper time dirided, their column brokeo, helpless and powerless at their rivals mercy. The political aod war record of Seymour best suited them of all. others, and with the bead of the ticket secured they readily dictated tie tail. Of all the men who have figured in politics from the great Northwest, Frank P. Blair Jr. is the moat oboxious in fact to the Democratic rartv A political reneade without atatus, char acter orability, the most blatant denun ciator of the Democracy now living, was forced upon that large assembly at New iork, not becauxo of merit, popularity or ability, but aimply because) Preston of Kentucky and Wade Hampton of South Cirolina, the recognized mouthpieces of Southern rebeM. dictated and demanded his nomination in tbeir behalf, and it mat maJt unanimoun. It is fur tbe msssei of tba people to de termtne which of the men are to acrve ua. ire to choose between Horatio St moor, tuo acoompliabod ariatocrat. who iJci in coach-inJ.four aod pliyi the roh of a New York millionaire, and U. 8.

His friends in the North raved about their lasue; raid they were "worthless trash," and that it would take a bstfull to buy a drink. To make their prophecy good, they want enough issued to redeem the bonds. Their failure in this in selec ting Seymour at New York, who was nominated through the influence of Del mont A Co., rich bondholders, causes a general "wheeping and whaling." Rut some of these fellows, where they have a strong Democratic (?) Conservative (?) ltcbcl constituency, will tell tbe whole truth about their desire, thusly: Thomas T. Iiowle, Governor elect of Maryland, at a Democratic meeting in Hdliuuore, iroke as follows concerning tbe bondholders: "If there be any cluna of men I would sooner tax, it would bo those men who furnished tho means to carry ou tbe most unholy, wicked and cruel war iu hiatory."

The Tax bill waa reported from the Conference Committee, aod agreed to lo both Houses of Congross, and goes to tho Preaident for hie aignature. It applies to distilled epiriti, tobace, inuf, eigara, coal olla, and aete aside) all provision of existing lawa oo tbxse articles. The rate on whisk j ia fixed aa fiftj cents. Wholo tale dealera pay 9109 tax oo annual sales not over $50,000; onii0iitr per h quü on alea in txccia of that limit, and one per cent, on ill ulei. Retail dealers piy twenty-five dollars. Taxes are collected at tbe dittillerj. Whisky and rum may be exported, anT a drawback of sixty cents per gallon is allowed to be paid by the Secretary of the Treasury, and not to be due tilt thirty days after the sailing of the vessel. Diatillorios pay four dollars perils; while runnioj?, and two wbilo work ie suspended. There ia to be one or more storskeepsrs for etch distillery, to be paid by the Government. Whisky now ia bond psys four dollars per barrel special tax, and must be withdrawn with in dIdi months, Tobaco9payi tblrty- two cents on chewing, aod sixteen on smoking. The proposition to make ware i nouses lor piug louacco WAS 001 agreou to. Manufactured tobacoo can be wlth- drawn in bond but twice. Snuff pays thirty-two ceots; ctgara, $3 per 1,000; clgarettei one dollar aud i half when not weighing over three pounds per thousand, sjd five dollars when exceeding this weight. Tbe bill does not incrosio Bank taxes, aa the Senate almost unanimously refused I to make am chance whatever, aod tho a 07 V House waa obliged to abandon tbe pro position or lose the bill. Coal oil aod its manufacturers are beroafter exempt from tax, but distillers and refiners must psy the same tax as other manufacturer by the act of last March. The meter system is sgsin introducod. The new atamp proviaiooa go into effect in aixty days, but the Seorctary of tho Treasury may, in Lie discretion, put off the time (ill December. Tbo Secretary and Com missioner may change the it vie of the atampa. TlTcre are to be twentyfivo supervisors of Internal Revenue appointed by the Secretiry. on the recommendation of tho Commissioner, and assigned to districts by the Commissioner, and to have a salary of $3,000. Tho Commissioner his rower to appoint twenty-five detective, and assign them to duty at will. The wholo of the prescut eyatem of revenue iuspco tors and special agents is abolished at once, and hereafter there are to be ro in spectors except of tobacco, snuff and ci gars, bulla aro berealter to Le compro- mired only by the Secretary and Comrois aioner. Colltotor nod Aeor hereafter to be confined to their own die tried, and aro subject to suspension by the Supervlsora fur abuaa of power, orglcct of duty, &c, revisory authority being in tbo Coromieeioner. This summsry is tuciely intended to Include a statement of the final action on controvcitcd points, as the general pro visions of tho new law aro well known, The bill is reported to ruako the number uf Internal Revenue officers less than half of what it now is, and will effect a great reduction in expenses. Uemocratlo Ratifications. Our Dcmocratlo neighbors in Decatur, Shelby. and Rush Countica have "gono through the form" of ratifying tho New York nominations, as the Democrata of thl( Coun. propoi(( t0 Jo ncxt gaturtiay, w ironjInent lp..kers were announced r,Cllera but thev invaritblv tailed O ' la l(,om. lo fl.j vomo oratora to be called out. The meetings were held on Saturday evening of last week. At Urcensburg, the posters announced Voorheea, McDonald, Holtuan, &o., but Col.Govin and a Mr. llonderson wcro the only speakers. Tho meeting throughout was as devoid of lifo and enthusiasm os a funcrsl. A more sickly looking and de jected set of Democrats was never before lookod upon At Shelbyville it was announced tha,t Col. Gavin and Col. Dick Ryan would make speeches, but neither of them "put in an appearance." Mr. Jas. Harrison, Msj. Randall, and others addressed the email crowd. Throughout the whole afl'air there was littlo enthusiasm, aod the lie- pubiicana preent wero much encouraged accordingly. At Rusbvillt, Lifo Dcvelin was expect ed to peak, but failed to bo prevent, and the meeting proved to bo almost an entiro failuro. These meetings aro but a esmplo of bow tho Democracy led all over tho State, and indtcato in no unmeaning uunner how complete will be the final defeat and utter rout of sham Democracy next November. Coming Down on the Figurei, We understand that our Couorvative(?) friends arc beginning to think that their claim for 1,000 majority in this County will not be realized since tbe Hluatcd bondholders" ruled their Convention, and they can't 'Rur for Rlair until they im bibe plenty uf tbe platform. i-BBSSj--W " - Seymour'! Strength at Home. In 1862 Horatio Seymour was elected Governor of Few York by a majority of 10,742. After be had served two jesrs the people decided to dispenao with his services, and elected Reuben K. Fenton over him a by wsjority of 8,293, wbilo at the samo election General McClellan was defeated in the Stato by only 0,710 majority. Organize! Organize! Not a day ebould now be lost in thor oughly perfecting the rßaniiation of the Union Republican Farty in Fra&klio County. We hope each Township will at tend to this important duty. Kvery neigh borhood should be flompactly organized without a week's delay. In organization and united work" much good tan bo ac complished. Tbe opposition understand thla, and hence we se them all at work, the year round, in asason and out of aea eon; as soon as tbey are defeated at an elec lion, they go right to work for the next election: nothintr secnl? to di-coursge them, tt.a. ... tr. earnest that aw wmrnvj OB I J J IVIIIUJ S) they even thereby deicrve and secC m speot. We never knw thorn lo be hara ' cr at work than they: are now, and we warn our friends that there ia danger in the lukewarmncii and inactivity so maul feat in our ranks. Ae an appropriate conclusion to theso suggestions, we sp pend the following paragraph from that staunch Republican piper, the Madison Daily Courier: ) Tu Way to Ona-VMii" ron a Polit ical Canvass -lst. o lurniili iulur- motion through nowepepera, periodicals and pamphlets to all nlio will read.

To this end we must be organised io each Election District, be ginning now. What Papers Must be Stamped. So intricate and perplexing are the laws relating to internal revenue, that few can recollect what papers munt be stamped and there is often a different opinion among those who claim to be learned in this kind of law. It in, we believe, pretty certain that stamps must be used aa fol lows; All notes slid evidences of debt, Ave cents on each one hundred dollar, if under otto hundred dollar, five cents; if w over one hundred dollars, five cents on cicu additional one hundred dollars or part thereof. All receipts for any amount without limit over twenty dollars, two ceots; if twenty dollars or under, nothing. All deeds and deeds of trust, fifty cents on each five bunded dollars in value- of the property conveyed or the amount secured; when a deed in trust is fully stamped, tbe note scoured must not be; but tbey should bo indorsed to show tbe reason why. Mortgage bonds need not Lo stamped if atampa are affixed to the mortgnge. AH appraisements, estates or estrays, five cents on each boot or piece of rarer. A Hi da vits of every description aro exctnrt from atamp duties.

Any person inttreatcd can affix and cauccl stain pit. DemocratIo(?) Ratification.

Can't they treat their Sons with Rowlcs, Milli gan, or Vallandigham who ia just over the birdci? Tho President's Veto Of tho Electoral College bill waa disposed of in short order by Congress on Monday. Senators Davis and Howard each said a few wordu, but thcto was no debate in the Houso. The vote iu the Senato was 45 to 8, and in the Houo VM to liC. All the new Southern members, io both branches, voted against the veto except Royden, of North Caroliua, who holds his seat under the reconstruction acts of which tins is tho conclusion, yet voted to sustain tho Pros ident, quite to the di'gust of bis usuoci ates. DEMOiunT'a Mo.NTJiLV. This popular parlor Magasine has woo for itself an envi able plcc iu tho esteem of American ladies. Its uscfu'inoai, the amount furnished for the monoy, is only equalod by its variety, its high tono, and general literary excel lence. In all those respects It ie fur in advanco of its contemporaries, and thoroughly deserves tho high favor it has won. It is marvelous that premiums of real and great valuo cau be added to a magaztuo of such cost and charactor, for three dollars per year. It only proves what is ao often said, that books and newspapers aro tho cheapest and brut edu cators in tho world. Address, W. Jcu ninga Demurest, 473 Rroadway, N. Y. Sound and Sknsiule.

It hsi also been ratified by Louisiana, Alabama and South Carolrna, but tbe pa pers lis vo not come to band. This makes more than enough, and the amendment thcreforo becomes a part of tbe Constitu tion aa soon as tho needful forms can be carried out. Congress may pass a de claratory act to this effect. The Minliilppl Election. The War Department has received Gen. Gillcm's report on the recent election in Mississippi.

The Prospect in Indiana. "Agate," the Washington correspond ent of tbe Cincinnati Gazette, writes ad follows concerning the political prospects in Indiana: Since the present members of Congress were chosen, there has teen -no general election io Indiana. Tbe lack of data for closecalculationeoo.be result this fall, arising from this fact, is tbe more felt since the Legislature baa aubsequently rediatricted the State. In the consequent uncertainty there are no aatiafactory mesne for reckoning tbe ehaneee io Iodiaoa. Tbe Democrats made loud claims of iin portent gains last year in the local elec tiooa, but these were mainly without general significance. On the other bsod, while the Presidential election ia sure to bring out the full strength of tbe Republi can party, the candidacy of Schuyler Col fax gives a local interest that might roanooably be expected to swell tbe ma jority. Indiana is commooly f et down in Presi dential calculations aa a State not absolute ly assured to the Republicans, with how little reason the figures will show. In 18C0 Mr. Lincoln carried it bv a niaioriiv over all othera of 0,815. In 1604, at tbe October election, Gov. Morton carried it by 20,883, and a month later Mr. Lioooln carried it by 20,183. In 1800, in. spite of tho fook of exciting questions, snd tbe tendenoy to reaction tha Republicans elected their ocretary ofState (ho head ed tho ticket for t.'.'et year) by majority of 14.202. In 1807, at the bight of the Demoeratio flood-tide, w'.ile Otilj shrank from a hundred thousand majority to a paltry three thousand and lost t.bo Legis lature, Indiana Republicans wore eti.'l ble to make headwav to many placea aganat the current. The local elections were dlscoursglog but not disheartening. at Fourth District. George W.Julian seems hard to kill. A considerable and Influential faction of the Republican party in Indiana has been engsged in the task for some time, and this new diatrict ia said to be one of the latest efforts in that direction. Rut Mr. Julian, cut off from a part of his favorite Quakers, has boldly adventured into Ihe fre.h fields and pas tures new, io which bis slaughter waa to be.aecured, and has come out ahead as usual. His new district is thus made up: Btri-BLIC.R.

Afier a brief csnjpoigu, he secured its unani mous tender. In bis old "liurnt Diatrict" he had a majority at the latt election of ä At.t a S or a u,z.3 over uunay, his Demoeratio oppo nent. Tbe aggregate m-Jortiee ,,c counties now composing the district was only 1 547, but the rcaotioo of last year can hardly have carried this below a thou sand, and with the increased excitement of the present contest, Mr. Julian's elec tion may bo considered perfectly aure. Judc;e Reid, of Liberty, Union county, an old Democrat, of many jesrs' service in the Stato Legislature, has been put up agaiott bim, e e On the whole, theiefore, we miy iura uy, by ssying that the Pint District Is probably Republican, but clone enough to be doubtful; that the Secotid is certainly Democratic; and that (ho remaining nine are certainly ltopublican. In tho pres ent House the Democrats have three Con gressmen from Indiana. In the next they may have only ono, and can not poa- sibly count on more than two. If there were any uncertainty about these calculations before the New York' Convention, there tan be none now. In more wsya than one, and to a peouliar ex tent, the" remits at New York luve de moralized Ibo Democricv cf Indians. They havo a disappointed csndidste for the Preiidency at the head of their State ticket. His own friends and relatives here admit that the failure at New York and the intense hostility of the Pendle ton people to him, render Senator Hen dricks' defeat perfectly certain, and add that if any honorable way presents itself for bim to retire from tho ticket, he will jump at the chance to do ao. Then Dan iel Y. Voorhces, and other leaders of tbo party, are also diasatUfiod, and likely to give no very efficient aid to the canvaaa. And if IIndricks should remain on the tioket f. t'audidate for Governor, there ato influe.'.'isl managers, and Demooratio newspapers of the Pendleton persuasion, that would rather aco him defeated thin not. One of them asked mo to telegrsph from New Yotk that the deadest man, po litically, in tho Demoeratio party, waa Thomas A. Hendricks, and his defeat was certain. In any event, the aucoessorshlp to the United States Senats seems certain to fall into the Republican grap. With thla prospect, the Senatorial canvass promises to bo lively. The candidatea named thua far, are Hon. Cod love 8. Orth, of Lafsy. ette, the most prominent of tha Indiana Republicans in Congress; Hon Will Cum back, formerly in Congress, and now on the State tioket for Lieutenant Governor; lion. Goorgo W. Julian of the "Uurnt District," and J udgo Hughes, who is now practicing law in this city. At the out- set, tho chances aeotu to be inOrth's favor; but it is too far ahead to make calcula tions. Tho Demoeratio organs are put to patn ful straits to manufacture enthusiasm for the Now York bondholders ticket among the soured and disappointed Pendleton ians. One devico is to represent the Kaat aa all ablaze for Seymour snd Rlair, and hold out promise of an eisy victory if the Weitem Democrats will but smother their disgust and go vigorously at work for a tick et they doiest.

Jackson and adjoiaing counties ia Io diaoa, for aeveral years past, baa been tbe home and rendezvous of aa desperate s gang of robbers and murderers aa has ever been known. Life and property have bo come uoisfe. Rut a few nights sgo a re epectable merchant of Seymour, Jackaoa county, had bis boras ahot under Lira while going home, sr,d himelf barely es caped with hia life. It will be recollected, ali-o, that io those counties the A da me Kxpress Company baa been repeatedly robbed by n en getting op board tbe train and overpowering the meaaengers, aod by taking possession of the engine and ex press csr and runniog off from the train snd then lesving them sAer rifling them of tbeir treasure. A robbery of this kind occurred also, lately, on the C, II. & D. Reilroad, where the Amciicao Kxpress Co in piny wss robbed of a large auouot. All these röbbtris have emanated from tho samo source. A family named Ueno, living at Rockford, two miles from Sey mour, have beo the loaders, or lostiga lorn of tbo whole oflbeee daring outrages. They are also the parties who led the raid io Iowa last apring. wben ao marry eouo ty safes were robbed. On the 22d of May last, the Adaras Ex preee Company's car was robbed about 13 miles from Seymour, on tbo line of the Jcffcraouville, Madiaoa & Indianapolis Railroad. This robbery waa dune by tbe Renos and their friends, some of whom ere now in Canada to avoid capture, and others are under irrert for this oatrsge. On the 10th ii.st. the Adams Kzpresiwia again attempted to be robbed, oo the Ohio & Mississippi Rsilroad, about thirteen miles west of Seymour. Tbe armed gusrds of the Company, however, repulsed the robbers, captured one and wouuded some of the others, two of whom have eine been captured, and fur the remainder s. large reward has been offered for their de livery to tbe auitoritica. James Volney Kllet wss one of this gang, aod waa cap tured on the night of the attempted rob bery. Charles Roreberry, a mident of Sey mour, and a pupil or the Renos, wss af terward arrested by the citisena of Sey mour, who turned out en masse. Trail Clifton was also arrested.

Thui ends tho second chapter in thii tragedy of ctime.
