Levi Bobbins, the oldest ex-member of the Assembly in New York, died at Copenhagen, in that State, last week, aged 101 years. Mr. Rob bins was in the' Legislature in the days when Do Witt Clinton was Gov ernor of ilie fchntc and Obadish Gor man was Speaker of the Assembly. Among his associates were- Alexander Hamilton, Richard Hatfield, J. R. Van Renssler and Peter Sharpe. He lived at a time when, according to his own words, "the Assemblv sessions were often disturbed by the drum of the partridge in the forest just outside the Capitol." The Ohio man does not die with dynasties or pass awayjwith Presidents. He lives on. The last representative of that Htato to become notorious went into the Treasury Department at Washington last week and presenting f 17,000 in six-per-cent. . bonds deman ded cod in return. A check he wouldn't have; nothing but gold would satisfy this Ohio man, who had paid gold for his bonds. After he had been accommodated, and had spent an hour In counting his shiners and sweep ing them into his grip-sack, he had load weighing seventy-five pounds, - and'was obliged to express the money to his Berne in Youngstown at a cost of f2 nor 81.000. For the first time in a very long time an Ohio man had bit ten otnrnane snail no couia cnew. "Washington. October 18. On the 31st of last March there were $132,180 CO in old copper nickle and bronze cent and two cent pieces, and $o;9ti8 in bronze one-cent, nickle three and five cents mutilated pieces In the Assistant Treasurer's office in Philadelphia, It bus been desired to turn these coins over to the .Superluteudeotof tho Phil adelphia Mink fo rceolnage, . and the Hubjeet was brought to the attention of tho Treasury Department in.

' The question Is a grave one, and consider ing all the surrounding circumstances, and the evident determination of the Democratic organs to worship at the feet of Wolfe, it Is not strange that It should receive serious consideration at the hands of many leading Democrats. Such a peculiar state of affairs is not without its parallel. The nomination of Horace Grovley for President was not unlike it. He was the life-long enemy of the party and had applied every epithet, in the catalogue to its chief fuglemen, hut in a moment of supreme foolishness they fell down before him and not only licked his feet but humbly kissed the rod that had so often smoted them on the raw. Now they arc all worshiping Wolfe, shoot ing loud hosannas to his praiso. fol lowing him about as if he were a pro phet, and had predicted that if the Democracy did not support him the party would be buried In irretrievable ruin. The Philadelphia Timet, after a desperate struggle, has succeeded in making itself the chief Wolfe organ In the State, and every Democrat now reads it with the same devotion that he would his shorter catechism. The little organs all chime in and shout for him. The name of Xoble is not mentioned. W. I.. Scott, of Erie, a member of the state committeee, op poses him with all the power he can command. The Pittsburg Poet, the only Deinocrtio daily in that region of smoke and sulphur, boldly declares "that it Is folly for the Democrats to expect success with a nomination that does not appeal to the old guard" and denounces the impolicy of select ing candidates "who have vague pre tensions of friendly voters in the op position ranks, but no record of ser vice with their own party." That foreshadows the fate of Xoble went of the Alleghenics and shows the evident inclination of the party to fol low the salary-grnbblng-graveyard-iu-surance candidate" from Lewhburg. Under such condition it is not only cruel, but absolutely dishonest, to keep the Willianisport nominee in the field to be deserted and slaughtered. Must he be devoured by a Wolfe without a friend to help him? Must his appeal for support be mocked by the party that nominated him? Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no longer any honor in the Democratic party? If there la Mr. Xoble will be quietly withdrawn in order to give the part j- an opportunity to support tho man of its choice without incum brance. The past has shown that there Is nothing too absurd for the Democratic party. It always stands ready to commit what is forcibly termed the "traditional blunder" and make a superlative ass of it.self at the critical moment. It is not strange, therefore, that it should be found in that position now. In chasing the fabulous animal that suckled the founders of Rome it but shows its thirst for pap and its willingness to crawl in the mire to hunt it. Speaking of organs, how Bad it is to find them all turning their backs on the Nobleman of Erie and grinding out "Sweet by and by" tunes for Wolfe. It is true that be is ranting about the state casting slurs on the name of Colonel Xoyes, that noblest Roman of them all, who sleeps peace fully in his mountain grave; but such coarse abuse of the dead only falls tike dulcet notes on the Democratic ear, and they shout louder as the scanda lous charges arc repeated. Such is one of the sublime inconsistencies of the party. Ilcrc iu Willianisport the local organ shouts loud and long for Wolfe, turns the cold shoulder on Noble, and has intimated on more than one occasion that the former is the man. This Is but a specimen of Democratic orgauship throughout the state. Such being the fact, it is not strange, perhaps, that the propriety of with drawing him is now being quietly discussed in the inner tabernacles of the Democratic synagoges. He is re garded as too good a man to beslaugh tered by those who yet possess a ling ering trace of political honor, and they are anxious to save him from ruin, it is evident that the content will lie between Baily and Wolfe. Then why not withdraw Noble and give the two leading candidates a free field afftl a fair race. It would behon orable to do so. Hamilton County's Tote. Cincinnatti, October 21. The offi cial count of the Hamilton-county votes at the last election lias just been concluded. It shows a total vote for Foster, Republican, for Governor, of 28,011; Brook waiter, Democrat, 25,000; Foster's majority, 3,551. The major ities for the other Republican Slate officers are aa follows: Richards, Lieutenant Governor, 1,789: Lang worth, Supreme Judge, 4,705; Nash, Treasurer, 8,604; Paul, Board of Pub lic works, 8,495. There Is no change In. county officers as previously re ported. Devereaux, the only Dem ocrat elected on the Legislative ticket, defeated Robert H.anlon, Republican, by 832 votes. Ludlow, Temperance candidate for Governor, received 487 votes. The West Chester Republican thinks that "the people who are not satisfied should be. The -ople who are should give their united support to their chosen caudidate, General Baily. Aud the Republican party should elect him aud do itself credit, redeem its pledges and subserve the best interest of the government, which Is of the people and for the people.!' Address of the Repnbllcan Stale Com mittee. the ftrcpuiit.trANftoP pksnsyi.va.ni a ASKtl) TO RALLY AROUND THE OLD FLACL To th Elcctort of Pennsylvania: Ours Is "a government of the peo ple, by the people, and for the people' of the people, since all authority springs from them; by the people, since their will, when expressed through established voluntary and legal forms, should be respected aud obeyed; for the people, in the fact that whatever Is thus done should be done for their welfare. Accepted maxims arc these. They -were given shape by the spirit of our customs and laws and direct expression by a mar tyred President at a time when they had just been sanctified by tho best blood of the nation. There was an election last year, and the result was confessed on all sides to have been fairly readied. It showed both an electoral and a popular ma jority for a Republican President and Vice President. The bullet of an as sassin has robbed the people of their Kersonal choice, and in his stead they ave secured by constitutional and ac ceptable methods his distinguished colleague. Since that election events have crowded thick and fast, but the on-looking world saw a Republic, in every material view, unshaken by calamity; our own people saw through the instrumentalities of the laws and Constitution, a faithful re flection of their will in the more im mediate change incident to the death of their President, and they had almo.rt permitted their political vigi lance to relax and take an indiffer ently easy air, when it was aroused by a partizan act on the part of the po litical organization which did not represent the people in the struggle for govcrnmontil policy. For tlie second time in our history "a prize had been drawn in the lottery of as sassination" by a common foe; and, in both cases, that I'oc was quick iu the search for cumulative profit. The Democratic party did seek a partizan profit from the murder of Lincoln, and unwarned by that experience, In, its greed fur power, repealed the at tempt but a week aso. Andrew Johnson's betrayal of the Idea that the legal expression of the will of the people must be respected was com pensated alter a struggle of-many months, the recent betrayal of a pub lic trust by the Democratic Senators was, so far as we can now judge, par tially met within two days. A bud purpose has been defeated, and while the will of the people has not been fully guarded or their policy guaran teed, the Republicans of the Senate have at least removed a glaring temp tation to further assassination, and for a time checked the greed of ever watchful enemies. UEMoC'KATJC ROfRnONISM. The saddest of ull deaths, the legal succession, the theft of the second place in the gift of the people, and its partial restoration have transpired with confusing speed; yet not so fast but that the reflecting man could give some little thought to the fact that if this government of ours is to be pre served "as of the people, by the people, and for the people,'' there must be neither direct nor indirect overtures to a partizan foe which Inn never yet bowed to the doctrine which was the friend of slavery, in a great section the author of rebellion, in yet other sections its aider and abettor and in all times subsequent to our greatest civil crisis the persistent foe of every advance toward a more perfect free dom. With its inherent belief in slavery, it opposed emancipation, civil rights, equal sulfrage, the planting of the school-house in the places where it was most needed; and instead of fa voring aud fostering those who suf fered for tiieir country, it has, by every insidious agency, sought to re ward those who betrayed it. This is not true of all Democrats, but it is true of the leaders, into whose hands power will be thrust by failure to hold Republican strongholds. They have a machinery which is cohesive in its power, which permits no freedom of opinion, which never divides, and which grinds on until its own force breaks it. The power of selection still rests with the Republicans of Pennsylvania. Ohio has risen from her Brief to confirm her selection by majorities relatively greater than iu Presidential years. Iowa makes a most Intelligent choice with unani mity. The Virginians, strufling to rid 'themselves of a form of Bourbon rule which is the same wherever it obtains, were until recently, divided as to policies; but in the rush of events have inrown away every idea ot tac tion, and are now ready to place them selves in the column of progress. The Republicans of New York, in natural solicitude for a distinguished citizen called to the point of danger, have buried from sight every dividing issue, and now present an example of har mony which has been wisely imitated in nearly all other States, There is a needed unity of watchfulness, to the end that the present, and at least tho near future of our country mav be guarded from possible calamity. Shall we, as Pcnnsylvanians, be less dutiful? When, in the past, sacrifices were called for have we ever, in either hatred, sullenness or despair, stood oil"? A claim to patriotism but mocks the term when It will not sacrifice convenience, comfort, even happiness and life, tor t he country's weal, A profession of fealty to admittedly just political principles is but a sham aud a pretense when it will not sacrifice something to unity and when it will not blend a personal purpose into the one winch moves lor me common irood. When public dancers quick succeed each other, when but a sinale life stands between approved govern ment and a revolution in policies. there ought to be no room for mere personalities, none for the detraction of friends, none for the creation of faction, and there ought to be univer sal I'pprubatioii ol counsels wnicu are opeulv contesseil to be in tne interest of the enemy. Good soldiers do not stop to dress mere bruises when the battle is on, nor do they march out of the line by either Hank at tne beck of tne toe. STAND BY THE PKKSIDF.NT. To admit that any considerable num. her of Pcnnsylvanians will be less so licitous of the national good than those of our neighboring States is to belie our past history. The administration of President Arthur from its very be ginning needs at the least the support of all Republican States, aud of none more than that which has proved the Keystone to Republicanism, as she has to the Union. That support can only be extended through ballots cast for Gen. Baily, the standard bearer of the party a gallant soldier, wounded while heading his troops, ascending through high personal merit from the bars of a Captain to the stars of a Gen eral now a modest, quiet citizen not a politician, not an officeholder one who earns his bread by the sweat of Ills brow, yet far too good to oppose, and of all men the last to be selected as the victim of spites against others. There was at least fairness in the hiss- iugand explosion of the shell which struck Mm at Gaines' Mill; there is neitner generosity nor manliness In the attempt to crush him with missies paofessedly aimed at others. Our National administration Is Re publican in Its make-up and character; we know it as such; the world knows It as such. It can. therefore, only find support in Republican majorities We nave no ouier method ot support; the world abroad recognizes no other, and no persuasion of secret enemies, of demagogues, or any apparent apathy of the open foe should be permitted to lure us from the one direct oblect support of the National Government ami tne administration thereof. This withheld and chagrin and disaster will quickly succeed each other. The man who can be persuaded to lose one battle In the hope, that he can more easily win the next does not live to sec now false is bis philosophy. WHAT T1IK PARTY REPRESENTS. The Republican nartv represents Is sues and purposes which aro worthy the effort of all who believe in the principles which have made our Gov ernment whatit is "of the people, by tne people and for tho people." ft represents ideas of administration spe cially dear to all. President Arthur has vowed that All the noble asnlrations of mv la mented predecessor which found ex pression In his life, the measures de vised and suggested during his brief administration to correct abuses and en force economy, to advance prosperity and promote the general welfare, to insure domestic security, and maintain friendly and honorable relations with the nations of the earth, will be gar nered in the hearts of the people, and it wiil be mv earnest endeavor to profit and to see that the nation shall profit by his example and experience." His faithful adherence to this decla ration calls for direct encouragement from Pennsylvania. Support' of the Republican cause and ticket will do it: support of any other means Its con demnation. The Administration. Its friends and enemies, and all Intelli gent ou-liokers will say so, and none will more quickly gloat over such a calamity than the journals and politi cians who are now counseling divis ion. The Republican nnrtv is liberal enough for all. I ts halioir.il deeds and declarations are not forgotten; its latest enunciation in the State points une quivocally to a reform in a plank which received the warm support of Ml representatives In State convention assembled; while that of the Demo cratic party plnvs with dangerous recklessness on the edges of Commun ism. Must these declarations iu rep resentative conventions be held less potent than those of tho self seeking, irresponsible, and the noisy on the rostrum? Only barbarous tribes wildly follow their howling dervishes. THINGS TO nts rem F.rrn EKED. The statesmen of the century have been members of the Republican party. It has counted in its ranks names which have become immortal, aud are so confessed of ail the earth Lincoln, Seward, Chase, Sumner, Garfield! names which aro nurtured in our par ty's traditions even more tenderly than in historic paxes. It is the party of reform, for it is progressive and never looks backward; It. is the party of liberty, and constantly seeks a more perfect freedom. True, some have wearied of its good work; some have straggled in the march of pro gress; others have regarded their bruises more than the goal beyond; some have even fallen by the wayside; but t he earnest aud the active still march on and gather as they move. You can on the 8th of Nov. next so shape your ballots, citizens of l'enn. sylvania that they will plove tho voice of order, promoter of stable govern ment in the State and the Nation. If they are cist as tho mere waifs of pas sion, the double edged instruments of faction, the world 'may be justified in forming a diifeivnt opinion of our pople for their character will at least seem to have changed from the sturdy ami steadfast to that which is weak and vacilating. Let us remember, Pcnnsylvanians. tint there is no f.rm of mental slavery more humiliating to its victim than that which yields it self captive to every sensation. Maereayh For Governor. THE IirxriXfiDOX REPUHLIC'AN COM MITTEE IX FA VOK OK Ills; NOMINA TION. Huntingdon, October 22. A very full meeting of the Republican County Committee was Iieid here to-day. The members were called upon to report the condition of the parly in their respective districts and whether a uni ted support will be given to the State and county tickets. The report were all highly favorable, the disposition, if any, being very slight, and likely to disappear before the election. It was the undivided sentiment of tho Com mittee that it is only necessary to get out the full vote in order to insure the usual Republican majority. The busi ness of the Committee was transacted with gratifying unanimity and har mony. Milton S. Lytic, Esq., offered the following resolutions and moved their adoption : Resolved, That to avoid the neces sity for another meeting of the com mittee, we now elect delegates to the next Republican State Convention. That Simson Wright be t lie Senator ial delegate, and Samuel A. Steel and Georgo G. Hutchinson the Repres entative delegates. That this committee would view with very great favor the nomination of Hon. Way ne MacVeagli aa the Re publican caudidate for governor, be lieving thut his conspicious abilities, unquestionable patriotism and integ rity, jndependent motives and conduct, and his close and intimate relations with the lamented Garfield, have en deared him to the people aud will make his election certain. That the time for holding the next Couuty Convention be left to the dis cretion of tho Chairman of this Com mittee Mr.. H. C. Beck offered as an amendment to the second resolution, that Milton S. Lytle bo Senatorial alternate, and 8.1 P. Giles and Henry Holtzapple, Representative alternates.

Jtceolved, That the Republican party of Pennsylvania is in the most hearty accord with the Administra tion of President Oarfleld, and, while uniting in the prayers of all pood people for hisr-peedy recovery, pledges continued fealty and tho must active suppport in the prompt and courag eous correction of nil governmental abuses. As Republicans we are in favor of any proper and well-considered reform, either in the government of the Nation, the Htatc, municipality or county, and we court suggestions to any or all of these ends, and only ask that in their advocacy wcll-cstat lished safeguards shall not bo handily supplanted by experiments. The Ad ministration of President Garfield has set the right example in this direction, and while firmly adhering to the prin ciples and better practices of the great party which called It into existence, it yet. insists upon faithfulness and honesty in every branch of the public service. That the bullet of an assassin should not interrupt this work. It should be pursued while its author lives, and beyond his life, if through Increasing misfortune it should be taken awav. Resolved, That the Republican party lias ever hoen progressive and reformatory, and while realizing that nothing in government is wholly right we desire to be always orave enough to seek every avenue of ap proach to the right to the end that all our ucoplo may enjoy the ever increas ing blessings ot good government. Renolvcd, That President James A. Garfield, this tender and loving, t hi struggling and fullering, this pure ami oraveman, now neeonies tne oeinvpl of this people and the admired of all . A... . .1 . . i Iijm.'. e leuuer lur uureivew mid our constituents assurances of iteep and heartfelt sympathy, and, keenly appreciating the-value of such a life to his country, we express the prayerful hope that he may soon be restored to the discharge of tho important duties for which he Is remnrkablv qualified and from which by a peculiarly infa. mous crime and an undeserved assault for a conscientious exercise of proper executive power, he has been tempo rarily withdrawn. RKKolrcd, That in 8tate as in Na tion, the Republican party is com mitted to the course of economical and honest administration; we de mand the use of all necessary menus' and the enforcement of all laws in tended to prevent fraud and wast, and we require a close and watchful guardianship over all of the multifa rious interests committed to the care of ou r orga n I zat ion . Resolved, That in any revision of our tariff legislation which may Imj made care shall be taken to discrimi nate iu favor of our industries, ami thereby promote the causes which are rapidly making America a controling powcr'in finances, as it already is nil established leader in political thought.
