PRIESTLY, of Northumberland. , M. D, ! iOur noiglibor of the Democrat has a pe culiar faculty for exercising the ery of "stop thief" in order to divert attention from his own sins.' Ever since the Court House King has keen broken up, and our county affairs are again assuming n good shape- , , , p , . . ,, . . . r the indebtedness being gradually paid off, and the money properly appropriated our neighbor tries to divert tho, people's attcn- Uon bv crvina "Ring." . This, however, is an old dodge in our neighbor. He is well versed In such political trickery:1 Having deluded many of the citizens in the county : for years, bo thinks be can continue to do so by keeping hidden from the people the ' mismanagement of Democratic officers for ten years past. Our neighbor , bad belter invent somethiug new if he mtends to mis lead tho peoplo again. If thcro is such n thing as a "Republican Ring" now, we have no doubt the tax payors wish that it had existed long before this, as they would have paid off the county indebtedness, and ... . I A . I Ml. . would nave nau enougn ion, to ouiia a new jail besides, and every cent would have . been accounted for. Under the Into "Deui- nnrntin Ttinc " tho connlv was Sunk deGDCr and deeper in debt annually, and the rno- nev was snuandered bv the Ring. No ac count was kept, of the money collected on duolicates. and. what is still worse, the cor- ' rect amount of the sums total of thedifferent duplicates were made smaller than the true amount, the county of course loosing the bulanco. This difference, last year, on one half the duplicates examined, amounted to over oue thousand dollars. What we state . is no Interpolation of the truth, but our neighbor's cry of "Ring" is a frnud as re' suits hhve shown. The Repudlican Senatorial Conke hence. The Senatorial Conferees of this District, convened at this place on Friday Inst, and after having a number of ballots without cuecting a nomination, adjourned to meet at Newport,rerry county, on Wed nesday last. On Wednesday they again met pursuant to adjournment, and after se vcral bullots nominated Dr. 1$. F. Wagon seller, of Snyder county. Dr. Wngenseller is a very competent man for the position, and very popular with the masses. His election is conceded, and we are salisQcd that his constituents will have a faithful nnd vigilant representative. Oun neighbor of the .Democrat is trying hard .to make tho Republican candidates who wcro unsuccessful at the County Con vention, believe that intrigue in tho Con vention defeated thcru, and intimates that they should all have been nomiuated, sing' - ling out all, aud pleasantly calls on them to join tho -0011100111110 ranks. Unfortunately-for our' neighbor the Republicans thus siuglcd out, have soma faint recollec tion of tho doings of the Democrat and its adherents during the lnte 'unpleasantness, and' they object to being caught in such company. Tho insults heaped upon the Republicans by the editor of the Dintocrat, to hide the sins of his party, ore not yet for gotten, and it will be a long time lieforc Republicans ; will bo. willing to follow the dictates of the Democrat, or listen to its persuasions. Tho only surprise to .us is that the "versatile nigger" that for , msrly occupied a promiucutpositiou in the , Democrat, not brought forth and erubrac ' ed by the editor, as an inducement for Re publicans tojolu bis "Ring" party. . : Leuukl SiiirMAN, the Democratic can : didate for Register & Reeorder, spends most of bis lime with the Ring in Sunbury, , making arrangomenU to get up something to deceive tlw voters on the evo of the elec tion. Mr. Shipmau is a good hand at the business, having had considerable expert ence in that lino, and bousts about the de ception lie practiced on tho peoplo of the Mahanoys in former years. Tho last story lie circulated through tho Mahanoys was tho pardon of Tat Hester, on Saturday, Sunday and Monday previous to the dec tion last (all. Dr. DEvm-T the candidal for Assem bly; is uow telling tho people all about bis bad cold when the Salary grab question came up in the- House of Representatives last winter. The Mlnnequa county ques tion, of course be was in favor of, and why should bo uot have been. He insist too that tho Sanitary American is a mean paper, and that peoplo should stop taking it. That the editor published tho proceed ings from tho Legislative Record, in refer ence to the salary grab question which bo bad no business to do. That the editor of the Democrat kept quiet about it, and that was tbe right paper to keep U) a family. A.

BtjAer 1ms boon tlrfcatcd for the nomination for Governor of Massachusetts, wJttcli Is very (jratlfylng to evcrj ono who Iovcb the pmrty,(br its principles, instead of plunder, la this matter, Massachusetts' has shown lo the world that unscrupulous men have no right for ofllco that the peoplo are bound to respect. ' . . Oun neighbor Is still troubled with the hallucination that tho Washington s,u thoritio are intorfcrlnft with' the primary factions.' We wonder that ha did not ex tract another feather for his quiver of argu ments in the fact that Col. David Tae- gart, A paymaster in Oregon, was elected a delegate to the Republican County Con vention, irom Aoruiutttberiana ; no aouot this was done by direct instructions from General O'fnnt, and that ho conspired lo secure tUo nomination of lit Hans to the Assembly. AVe always cava Grant credit for - cood Ieai of brain, but if tho lntclh- yciwr will prove the above suspicion to bo correct, we sunn esteem mm more niginy than ever. It rcnuircs more than ordinary ability to reach out into the rural districts anu select sucii excellent canoiuaics. Mnntour Amerkun. The success of tho llepublicnns in oust ing the Democratic Hiug which controlled this county's politics for so many years and Bnuaudcrcd tho neonlc'a money, has induc ed the editor of ibe Sunbury Democrat to cry "Umg" at tho Kopubhcans. JJut we are of the opinion the cry will bo unheeded as long as the llcpubhcaus continue to do hs they are now doing. The county debt piled up oy tno Nomocracy is nearly paiu off. That has tho "ring" of the true me tal. Mittonian. TiiR Constitutional Convention will reassemble in Philadelphia on Tuesday morning, 10th Inst., when the first business before t w 1 be thee lection of a permanent ffl . . f ,Io "f Wm. M. iereditri, deceased. As the deceased was a delegate t large, it will also devolve upon the Republicans to choose his successor as a member ot the Convention. The ..Vi7fo)itnn states that an elopement occurred last week on the opposite side of tho river Union county. Henry Lw ellen. an cnibrvo minister of tho Baptist church from Decrfield, X. J., won tho heart and took the hand of Emma, adopted daughter of l'etcr llagenbuch. Mr. and Mrs. II. wero much opposed to tho match, and the vouns folks Davina no heed to the judgment of the girl's parents decamped on tuc siy. The Democrat is trying to make capital out of the report that Dr. Haas, our can didates for Assembly, will lose some Re- Sublican votes in MU Carmcl borougli. ;ut it is no bo. The Doctor's populari- sy among the dclvers in tho mine of both parties, is too well Known to anow any one to be iltined into the belief that ho will come out of tho coal regions with less than his party vote. blMinokin Jieraui.
