x Francisco, July 1G, 1S6S.
Mr. Seymour, the statesman whose stat
etmanship would have destroyed the
State, says that "our people are harassed
by the heavy and frequent demands of
of the tax gatherer." True, and these
demands were caused by a Rebellion of
Southern Democrats, doubled by the
sympathetic aid of Northern Copperheads,
and would be rendered twice as heavy
and frequent as they need be by the poli
cies of revolution, rebellion, and repudia
tion introduced into the Democratic plat
form by Wade Hampton and Pendleton,
adopted by the Convention with the same
wild Rebel yell which used to salute the
ears of our troops when the were pressed
back on the battle-field, indorsed by Sey
mour and Rlair in their letter of accep
tance, and now put forward as the creed
of the Democratic party.
Ex-Gov. Seymour Bays: "Under its
(Congress's) influence, some of the States
organized by its agents arc purposing to
deprive the people of the right to rote for
Presidential electors, and the first bold
steps are taken to destroy the right of suf
frage." Should any of the Southern States
cast their electoral votes through their
Legislatures, instead of by electors elected
by the people, it will be only what South
Carolina, a Democratic State of the olden
times, has always done until now. Tho
Democrats of South Carolina will have
the firpt opportunity they ever enjoyed of
voting for Presidential electors. If this
is a bold step toward destroying the right
of suffrage, why did not the Democratic
party find it out when it was so long
practiced by them.
Some noodle, who felt apprehensive
that Horatio Seymour was a holder of
United States bonds, addressed an in
quiry to him upon the subject, and was
promptly answered by Mr. Seymour,
through his private secretary, to the ef
fect that he did not hold, and never had
held, a dollar of United States securities.
We cannot imagine that any one not born
idiot could ever have entertained any
doubt upon this point. Horatio Seymour
is the last man to invest a cent in the
securities of the Government when it
was to be used to suppress a rebellion.
Had the question been whether he had
invested in Confederate bonds, it would
have been u much more rational one.
The Democratic party deliberately sa
crificed thousands of whito men in order
to save its slaves, and yet it calls itself a
white man's party !

nection with Yale College, we have pro

of his college life. We have nothing to MJ tut didn't end so happily es it mite. I-

sage and credit it to our editoral opinion.
Francis Preston Rlair, Jr., third son
of Francis P. Rlair, was born in Lexing
ton, Ky., Feb. 19,1821. His father was
a graduate ot Iransvlvama Univcrsitv.
Ky., and editor from 1830 to 1835 of the
Globe, which was the organ at Washing-
ton of the Democratic party during Gen.
Jackson's Presidency, and for many years
afterwards. His oldest brother, Mont
gomery Rlair, is well known as the Postmaster-General
in President Lincoln's
F. P. Rlair, Jr., entered the Freshman
class in Yale College in the fall of 1837.
He had the honor of presiding at the
first meeting of the class, which held
(probably) on the Saturday afternoon fol
lowing their organization, for the pur
pose of choosing the leaders of the class.
ror many years previous to 1837, this
officer, who presided at the meetings of
the class, and led them when they march
ed in procession or engaged in a fight
with the town boys, was called the "Rul
ly j" the second officer, or subordinate
leader, usually one of the smaller mem
bers of the class, being called the "Mi
nor Rully but in all the higher classes
then in college, there had been warm
contests in regard to the use or disuse of
these names. The "Rully" party (me-
nrace all tne southern and wild voun?
men in eachclass, as well as the New Ila
ven students and conservatives general
ly), earnestly advocating the continuance
of the accustomed name, and the "Chair
man" party (composed principatly of the
moresobrc portion) asearncstly advocating
the substitution of some other name
for thi3 which was so suggestive of fight
In the class of 1838 the "Chairman"
party had the majority, and the class was
divided into rival factions. A similar
controversy disturbed the class of 1840,
especially during the Freshman year;
but the class of 1841 was declared by Mr.
Rlair to have a majority for "Rully" at
this first-meeting, and henceforth there
was no more controversy in the class as
to the name.
This conclusion was not reached, how
ever, without strong opposition. Mr.
Robbinson (now How. Wm. E. Robin
son, M. C.,) particularly distinguishing
himself by his championship ot the
"Chairman" party, and provoking Mr.
Rlair to utter the threat that he would
leave the chair and horsewhip the unac
commodating opposer of his policy, at
which threat, though not carried out Mr.
Robinson appeared to be by no means
Mr. Rlair's labors in the class were
unexpectedly terminated near the close
of the first term, in consequence of his
particpation in some disorderly nocturnal
scenes at Christmas, which were speedily
followed by the decision of President
Day and other members of the faculty to
"suspend" Mr. Rlair and some others from
the privileges of the college.
Mr. Rlair's connection with the Uni
versity of North Carolina, which followed
his departure from Yale, is understood to
have come likewise to an untimely end,
in consequence of his unlawfully shoot
ing a pig. His third attempt was more
successful, as he passed through the col
lage course at Princeton, N. J., with the
class of 1841, though even here he fail
ed of obtaining his degree with the rest
of the class on account of disfiguring the
face of a fellow-student. A few years af
terwards Mr. Rlair refused to take his
degree when it was offered him by the
college authorities.
The Ruffalo Express says that a gen
tleman who went over the Eire road to
New York a few days since, relates to us
the following : In the smoking car a
political discussion arose. Among those
present were some twelve or fifteen Jewish
merchants from Cincinnati. All of these
but a single one pronounced themselves
strongly for Grant, and one proposed tak
a vote in the car, which was done, and
resulted, thirty for Grant and seven for
Seymour. He and the Seymour man,
a third to see fair play on both sides, then
proceeded through the entire train and
polled the passengers. The vote stood
twenty-seven for Seymonr against seventy
for Grant.
General Ferdinand Vandevccr, ofRut
les county, Ohio, a resident of Vallandig
ham's district, has declared himself in
favor of Grant and Colfax, and has ex
pressed his willigncss to niako as.maiy
speeches for the Republican ticket as Jho
committco of that party in his county de
sired. Mr. A. J. Strecter recently drovo a
pair of horses from St. Paul, Min., to

Petroleum V. Xassy, I M.,
(Wich is Postmaster.)
The scope of Mr. Seymour's letter of
acceptance recalls an old story : A good
i t i
acacon, wno Kept a country store, some
where and long ago, wa3 afflicted with a
graceless son, who would not earn money,
but showed a wonderful capacity for
squandering the small gains of his parents
Thinking rcgur occupation and a tier-
wagon, harnessed to his old family horse,
supplied him with an assortment of dry
goods and nieknacks, and sent him to try
his fortune in the more rual districts.
In about a week the incorrigible son
came back, without goods, wagon, or
money. Of course the old gentleman
was anxious to know the reason for this,
and the extent of his losses. The grace
less boy made his story as long and cir
cuitous as possible, dreading to confess
the whole truth, but it soon appeared that
he had used up the proceeds of goods
with which he was intrusted, and that he
had been on what used then to be called
"a regular spree." The father's impa
tience would not bear to wait the tedious
course of the story, which seemed never
likely to reach a culmination, and he
broke in with, "You don't mean to tell
me, Sam, that old Dobbin has gone too
with the rest V Looking up with an in
jured air, the by no means penitent pro
digal son retorted, "Come now, dad I
should like to know be you a tellin' this
story, or bo I !"
Somewhat like this must have been the
ejaculation of Frank Rlair as he read the
decorous and oily letter of his chief.
Frank begun the story in his revoulation
ary missive, but he gets no encourage
ment at all from "the old man." The
southern friends of the diplomatic New
Yorker may reasonably nako the same
complaint. Several planks of tho New
l'ork platform, if they had voice, would
groan at the indifference with which they
arc spurned. Iudeed, tho people gen
erally would like to know which is au
thorized to tell the democrats' story, Sey
mour or Rlair. We all know Frank ; all
parties have had experience of him, and
we know that with all his faults he is at
least frank. What he says he means.
Docs he represent the true purpose of
his party, or does Iloratoi Seymour ? We
move that Frank go on without further
interruption to tell his story out, whether
"Old Dobbin" bo lost or saved by the
telling. Springfield llcpiu Itlica n.
"Without distinction of party, there is
a strong feeling in favor of that lino of
action which shall restore order and con
fidence, and shall lift off the burdens
which now hinder and vex the industry
of tho country."
So says cx-Gov. Seymour, and so sny
we. Rut tho Dcmocratio Convention has
committed tho party to tho policy of
overthrowing the governments organised
by Congress in the Southern States, and
using tho array to crush out the law,
silence Congress, and trample loyal men
North and South under foot. Is this a
policy likely to restore order and con
fidence 7 Instead of lightning, it would
double tho burdens which vex tho indus
try of tho country. 1
Tho Right Kind'of Roligion.
I want, and we all want, a religion that
not only bears on the sinfulness of sin,
but on tho rascality of lying and stealing;
a religion that banishes all small meas

sugar, rocks from wool, chiccory from
coffee, alum from bread, lard from butter,
and water from milk-cans. Tho religion
that is to advanco tho world will not put

A Littlo Girl Carried c3by a Rear.
A little girl, three ycar3 old, the daugh
ter of Henry Fiynn, living abont 30 milca
cast of tln3 place, was recently carried off
by a black bear, and recovered CO hour
thereafter, almost unharmed. She ac
companied her father on his 1orsc ono
morning about 40 rods from home, and
was then pnt down and told by hira to
return home. On his return it waa found
that she had disappeared. An examina
tion of the place where she had bceu
showed, the track of a large bear.
Her parents immediately began to
search for her, and were assisted by two
gentlemen looking for land. About
thirty-six hours after the child disappear
ed, as the two gentlemen were passing 4
swampy spot, where the undergrowth
was very thick, one of them heard tho
child's voice. lie than called the child
by name and told her to come out of tho
bushes. She replied that the bear would
not let her. The men then creeped through
the brush, and when near the spot where
the child and bear were, they heard a
splash in the water, which the child said
was the bear.
Oa going to her they found her stand--ing
upon a log extending about half way
across the river. The bear had under
taken to cross the river on the log and
being closely pnrsued, left the child and
swam away. She had received some
scratches about her face, arms and legs,
and her clothes were almost torn from her,
but the bear had not bitten her to hurt
her, only the marks of the teeth being
found on her back, where in taking hold
of her clothes to carry her he had taker
the flesh also.
The little one says the bear would put
her down occasionally to rest, and would
put his nose up to her face, when sho
would slap him, then the bear would hang
his head by her side and purr and rub
against her like a cat. The men asked
her if she was cold in ,he night, and sho
told them the old bear lay down besido
her and put his "arras" around her and
hugged her to hira and kept her warm,
though she did not like Lis loug hair.
The supposition is that it was a femalo
bear, and having lost her cubs, came
across the child and adopted it. Xash

At the last session of the Pennsylvania
Legislature an act was passed providing
for the appointment of a commission to
adjudicate and record tho claims of cit
zens of the counties of Adams, Franklin,
Fulton, Rcdford, York, Perry and Cun
berland, for damages incurred by the re
bel invasion cf 1SG3, cither through tho
public enemy or the appropriation of pro
perty by the Union army. Thus far tho
Commissioners have vi?ited but thrco
counties Perry, Redford and Fulton
in which the damage was much less than
in the remaining four. In Perry Coun
ty the losses will amount to but 52,000.
In Redford County there are fifty claim
ants, whose damages amount to 5,000.-
In Fulton county, which was most expos
ed, there are one hundred and thirty
claimants, whoso damges will reach at
least S10,000, exclusive of the loss by a

The Bore in Peach Trees.
A writer in the Southern Planter says:
"I once heard a lady whose husband had
planted a peach orchard with a view of
making brandy. She feared that ho
might become a drunkard, and determin
ed to kill his trees. To effect this sho
secretly poured scalding water around
the rocts, and to her great surprise tho
trees did not die, but produced an extra
crop of peaches. The scaldiing water
killed tho worms, but was not sufEcient
to kill the trees. At first I adopted this
practice very cautiously, but now without
tear I pursue it. Early each spring, I
scrap around the trees with a large knifo
on the morning of washing-day. Whea
the washing is done, I take buckets full
of boiling suds into the orchard, and dash
tho trees just where tho trunks join the
ground. In this way thousands of littlo
worms are scalded to death. Lastly, I
apply unleachcd ashes to the trees. Af
ter an experience of several years, I con
fidently recommend this praticc.
Mr. Seymour says : " Thoughtful men
feel that there have been wrongs in tho
financial management which have been
kept from tho public knowledge."-
