The Democratic papers of tlie State have advocated tl.o candidacy of Wolfe po effectively among their followers, that they have lcomc alarmed at the iossible result, and are now begging them not to vote for him, but to stand by their own party nominee. It looks now as if Wolfe would draw more votes from the Democratic than from the Re publican party. The Dedford Gazette is much dis gruntled because Mr. Cessna attends the Republican township meetings in this county, and yet its candidate Mr. Baer attended and mauo a speech at the Democratic county meeting in Bedford, claiming votes as a life-long Democrat, and is mak ing a diligent personal Ftill-hunt in this county, soliciting Republican votes as a non-partisan. The great est difference in their conduct that we can see is, that Mr. Cessna makes a bold, manly, fair canvass, while Mr. Baer is making sneaking and disingenuous one. The Erie Herald, the only daily Democratic paper published in that citv, the home of Orange Noble, the candidate for State Treasurer, is pouring enough hot slirrf into him to sink a fleet of iron clad Democrats. Tlie Herald says that Xoble came into the "Democratic party only a few years since avowedly in search of an office; that the first thing he did was to become a candidate in 1875 for State Treasurer, an office he is utterly incompetent to fill, and that failing to secure the nomination he bolted, and supported Henry Rawle, Republican candidate. Again last year, as the Democratic candi date for the Legislature, he ran more than three hundred votes behind the ticket in the city of Erie. For these reasons the Herald thinks that Noble has no claim on the support of honest Democrats, and that he is a miserably weak candidate. We sympathize with our namesake in its contempt for and hostility to bolters, and the languidness of the Democratic campaign throughout the Slate shows that the bolter will be bolted, and that Noble will be largely defeated by the stay-at-home members of his own party. No man has labored more zealously for .the party, nor done more cfi'ec- tivr, good work, lie lias all me elements of a good Judge in him. He is a Inker lawyer than Mr. Baer, and is his equal m character and general ability. His temper is even and his energy uncqualed. Why should any Republican desert him or the party at this time? Luke warm ness as to his election, or treachery to so worthy a candidate will only pave the way for the loss of our Congressional and Senatorial elections next year. We therefore appeal to all true Republicans to stand by him as faithfully as they do by their cc tnty ticket. CVI.MM'S. . " miMmm - YORKTOWN CESTESH1AL CELE til ADDRESS OF PRESI DENT ARTHUR. ELECTION! TUESDAY, ll 8ft! Reitblicaxs 1 go to the polls and vote a clean ticket! The Republi can that scratches is getting down to work that should he left to old hens. Between this and election day the majority for Baily, Cessna, and the whole ticket can be increased several hundred, if every Republican does his duty. It is most amusing to see how , ardently the Democratic editors of the State are advocating the election of Wolfe, but not one of the rascals will vote for him. Ji'Dge Hall should send Baer a lock of his hair, and soothe him with the promise, " blessed are they that expect nothing, for they shall not be disappointed." Wolfe's little balloon has col lapsed. He punctured it himself by his bitter attack on (."ov. Hoyt and State Treasurer Butler. They both gave the lie to his allegations, and the decent men who had in tended supporting him immediately abandoned his cause. Representative Bierlv, of Ly coming county, a Democrat, is out for Wolfe for State Treasurer. Like our tender-footed Republicans, he is forninst " Bosses," and he' says that Noble owes his nomination solely to Senator Wallace, and that both arc the tools of corporations. . We have information from nearly every portion of the county, showing a healthy and gratifying public sen timent The Republicans are alive to the importance of the local con test, and Mr. Baer is not likely to reap an abundant harvest of votes from the active personal still-hunt he is making. While Mr. Baer is prancing around this county begging Repub lican votes, the Bedford Gazette is doing its level best to rally the Dem ocrats of that county to his support, as the Democratic candidate. Baer is famous as a "dodger," but the counties are too close together for so ' thin a dodge to win. Reformers, like liars, should have good memories. It looks a little wild to see the New York Tribune and other papers that howled so lustily a few months since against the M Cotikling machine " and ixliti eal assessments, now justifying as sessment when money is needed to run the canvass for the Reformers in New York. The result of the elections in Ohio and Iowa has virtually settled tlie contest in this State, and we have no doubt of the election of General Baily bya majority that will surprise the country. General Baily is a most unexceptionable candidate, a man of the neonle. a workins man. against whose honesty and capacity j not a word has been or can be truth fully uttered. He was nominated by an overwhelming majority, and one of his heartiest supporters is Col. Davies, his unsuccessful com petitor. The Republicans of this State have not a particle more cause for deserting their party nominee at this time than had the Republicans of Ohio at the late election. They are aware that the attempts leing made to keep alive the spirit of fac tions, is simply a device to defeat tlie party and elect a Democrat to tlie only State office to be filled, and thus pave the way to the election of a Democratic Governor next year. Pennsylvania Republicans are not less intelligent and patriotic than their brothers in Ohio, and are re solved to prove to the world by the election of General Bail', that their banner cannot be trailed in the dust bv a few factionists who would sac rifice the party and its principles to gratify their own selfish ambition. General Davikh, the unsuccess ful candidate for the nomination against General Baily, warmly sup ports the latter, and denounces the candidacy of Wolfe. Pennsylvania Republicans owe it to the memory of Garfield, who was a gallant soldier, as well as to their oft-repeated profession of devo tion to the heroes of the war for the Union, to give Gen. Silas M. Baily a twenty thousand majority next month. Ax exchange says: I'he convicts in the Ohio penitentiary have sent $100 to the Michigan sufferers. They raised this sum by denying themselves the luxury of tobacco and from the sale of trinkets which they made." It is sometimes good to imitate the charity even of the convicts of a penitcntiarj'. General Baily says he has just made a tour of the northern coun ties and the oil region, and is entire ly satisfied with '.he outlook. He savs the large audiences which Mr. Wolfe is drawing are composed al- i r T . - . . T . most entireiv oi i'emociuis, wuj i few Republicans going to hear him, and feels sure that if the Wolfe movement gains no more strength proportionately during the rest oi the campaign than it has up to this imo In own flection will not be endangered. Pkeswext AiiTiii R made a little speech at Yorktown yesterday which was a worthy companion-piece to his inaugural address. Nothing could have been more graceful and felicitous than the spirit and manner in which he touched upon the event commemorated and defined the na ture and purpose of its celebration. His language is characterized at once by modesty and manliness, by patriotic prid and by international courtesy. His reference to England and to the sympathy vhich the English people have so recently ex pressed for the citizens of this Re public was singularly happy, and will assuredly make a deeply favor able impression upon the British mind. The speech was, in short, a model of c:ood taste and retincd feeling. North American. William J. Baeb hasn't the ghost of a chance for an election, except by Republican votes, and that is precisely what he is trying to ac complish. The proceeding is a cheeky one oil lus part. Was Mr. Baer ever known to vote for a Re publican for Judge, or for any other office ? He is, and always has lcen, a bitter, uncompromising Democrat, and the Republican who votes for him has but one other tep to take to march straight out of the partv. Oir advices from this county as well as from Bedford, satisfy us that Mr. Cessna is going to be elected Judge by a majority in the neigh borhood of one thousand votes. We know that there are some Re publicans in this county who will be seduced into betraying their par ty and voting for Mr. Baer, and we know also that there are members of his own party in the county who will not touch him. We know fur ther, that in his long and active po litical life, as in the course of his professional duty, Mr. Cessna has alienated some of the Republican voters of his own county, but he has many warm and attached friends in the Democratic ranks. We are advised, also, that Judge Hall, ingrate that he is, is attempt ing to defeat the nominee of the party that honored him with this same office, and made him pecunia rily all he is, but there is not much to be feared from the influence of one who was so stingingly rebu'.ed by these same people of his n county, when he asked a renomiua- tion at their hands. There are al-o a few, happily very few, men in this county holding aloof from the can vass, from whom the party has a right to expect better things ; but in all this there is nothing discouraging to the friends of Mr. Cessna. Years of observation have shown us how powerless leaders, or would be 44 Bosses " are, when they attempt to 6tem the current or to set them selves up against honestly and regu larly made nominations, and we long since learned that rumored party defections are always multi plied ten or even twenty fold. The stories peddled through Bedford county about the big majority Mr. Baer is going to receive here are the veriest bosh, the silliest brag, while the tales reported here of his antici pated majority in Bedfofd county are, we are well assured, of a simitar untruthful character. We believe know whereof we affirm when The Harrisburg Tel-graph asks the following questions, which are wor thy of serious consideration by Re publicans : Do von prefer success with a gal lant soldier as vour candidate, true to every principle of the party that has made the country glorious and prosperous for the last twenty years, or to have tho party defeated and Democracy successful with a candi date who is ready to endorse the worst herceies of the Democratic party merely that his personal suc cess" may be promoted? The Re publican that is infatuated enough to do this need only vote for Charles S. Wolfe. . . . Are you ready to sacrifice princi ples oil which are now based the triumnh3 of low interest on the State and National elebts, and steady liquidation of both, the constant nrosneritv of labor, the fair wages of the laborer, the protection of his in dustry, the impartiality of Govern ment," and the purity of it? adminis tration, merely that Quixotic as saults on the character of certain Republican leaders may be sustain ed? Can you sacrifice the measures of your party to punish what is called the defects of its leadership, where by in twenty years it never lost an election in which any of the princi ples referred to above were involved as issues? If it be true, as Republicans al ways claimed, that the continued success of Republican institutions, and the integrity, good faith and financial prosperity of the people depend largely on Republican suc cess, what excuse, then, has any in telligent Republican to vote against his party in the November election? Will any Republican, independ ent, stalwart or radical concede that the Democratic party is m any par ticular qualified or fitted to admin ister any of the powers of the Gov ernment, State or National, after it labored for five years to destroy its national organization, and scatter its States into bitter antagonism ? A close consideration of these questions will enable Republicans to vote intelligently. T.VJ. 1'RESIHKNT S AUURESS. "Upon this soil," he said, "one hundred years ago, our forefathers brought to a successful issue their heroic struggle for independence. Here and then was established, and as we trust, made secure upon this continent for ages yet to come, that principle of government which is tho very fiber of our political, sys temthe sovereignty of tlie people. The resentments which attended, and for a time survived, the clash of arms has long since ceased to animate our hearts. It is with no fee ling of exultation over a de feated foe that to-day we summon up a remembrance of those events which have made holy the ground ; whereon we tread. Surely no such unworthy sentiment could find har bor in our hearts, 60 profoundly fill ed with expression of sorrow and sympathy which our national be reavement has evolved from the people of England and their august sovereign ; but it is altogether fitting that we should gather here to refresh our souls with the contemplation of the unfaltering patriotism, the stur dy zeal and the sublime faith which achieved the results we now com memorate. For so, if we learn a right lesson of the hour, shall we be incited to transmit to tlie generation which shall follow the precious leg acy which our fathers left to us, the love of liberty protected by law. Of that historic scene which we here celebrate no feature is more promi nent and none more touching than the participation of our gallant al lies from across the sea. It was their presence which gave fresh and vigorous impulse to the hopes of our countrymen when well nigh disheartened by a long series of dis asters. It was their noble and gen erous aid, extended in the darkest period of the struggle, which sped the coming of our triumph and mndfi the caDitulation of Yorktown possible a century ago. To their de scendants and representatives who are here present as the honored frticsts of the nation it is my glad ? ,.,1 X- .. Hut v to o t-r coruiai welcome, x wu have a right to share with us the as sociation which cluster about the day when vour fathers fought side by side with our fathers in the cause which was here crowned with suc cess, and none of these memories wakened bv this anniversary are more grateful to us all than the reflection that the national friend ships here so closely cemented have outlasted the mutations of a change ful century. God grant, my coun trymen, that they may ever remain unshaken and that ever henceforth with ourselves and with all the na tions of the earth we may be at peace." The President was not interrupt ed during the delivery of his address, but there was great enthusiasm at the close. . . Tlie following order was read ly Secretary Blaine : 'In recognition ol tue inenu'y re lations so long and happily existing between Great Britian and . the Uni ted States, in trust and confidence of peace and good will between the two countries to come, and especial ly as a mark of profound respect entertained by the American people for the illustrious and gracious lady who sits upon the British throne, it is hereby ordered that at the close of these "ceremonies commemorative of the valor and success of our fore fathers in their patriotic struggle for independence, the British flag shall be saluted by the processions of the army and navy of the United States now at Yorktown.

The Marquis de Rjchambeau made a . graceful speech in French, in wnicn ne saiu : citizens in wjc United States, you have invited us to celebrate with you the great achievement of arms, and we did not hesitate to brave the terrors of the ocean to say to you that what our fathers and brothers did in 1781 we, their sons, would be willing to-day to do and to attest our constant fricndship,and to further show that we cherish the same sentiments as our fathers in those glorious days we celebrate. In the name of my companions, who represent here the men who fought, permit me to hope that the attachment formed in these days around this monument which is about to be erected, will be renew ed in one hundred years, and will again celebrate the victory which joined our fathers in comradeship and alliance-" Baron Steuben then responded in German in an appropriate speech which was loubly applauded. bad nrnciiAixs. Mt. Pleasant, Oct, 20. last night a very bold robbery was com mitted by a gang of outlaws at the house of John Galloway, two miles northeast of town. Galloway is an unmarried man seventy years of jge. lie was sup posed to have mout- a'. nv his house. Nancy Newell, hid housekeeper, aged forty-five, was also supposed to have some money. Last night about eight o'clock, Mr. Galloway had retired and Miss Newell extinguished the light pre paratory to going up etairs when a knock was heard at the door. The housekeeper asked the name. Re ceiving no reply she called Mr. Gal loway, who came down stairs and asked who was there. After some hesitation one of the men said his name wus Johnston, when Gallo way onened the door. Five bold looking men confronted him. They said thev had treed a coon and wanted an ax to cut the tree down. to which Galloway replied that he would not cive his ax at that time ofuicht The men took hold of the old trentleman. He tried to o keen them off. but was soon over powered. They knocked him down, dragged him out on the porch and beat him s badly that it will prob ably end in murder. lie fought for his life and even got his knife out he says he succeeded in cutting one across the hand and another alout the mouth. The villains beat him about the head and jumped on Ins breast to keen him down. A deep hole is cut over his right eye, and in the skull. Both hands arc terribly lacerated and one arm bad ly oruiseti. While some of the men were man- iiirini? Galloway one went into the house. drazEretl Nancy Newell out on the porch, blindfolded her. choked and smothered her. and offered her whiskv. threw her on the floor and nctuallv outraged her. Her feet were tied with a whip lash and her hands were tied behind her with a handkerchief. The villains threat ened to blow her brains out if she did not keep quiet. After the men succeeded in get ting Mr. Galloway and Miss Newell under control thev proceeded to search the house. They stolei n all S2.41W in cold, silver and paper. 81.9)0of the money belonged to Mr. Gallowav. who kept it in a bureau drawer in a room down stairs ; $700 of this money was in gold and the rest in silver and paper money. In a bureau up-stairs they found $")00 , i i t:. X- 11 TV,.i oeionging W iUISH wencu. i"ct searched every drawer and even box es in the carret Papers and cloth- inc were strewn over the floor. Hu man blood was smeared over the room and porch, which presented a most pitiful sight to the reporter thismorninsr. After they had secured their booty they next talked of burning the house, but after some discussion de cided not to. About 11 o'clock, leaving their victims bound hand and foot, they quitted the premises. After repeate'd efforts Miss Newell succeeded in freeing her hands and feet and ran to the .house of Mr. King, who is Galloway's tenant Dr. Fulton was summoned ana dressed the old gentleman's wounds. The doctor says Galloway is in a critical condition, but with careiui nursing he may recover. Miss Newell gives the following description of the villains who treat ed her so basely : The fiend who draircred her to the porch and outrag ed her is about six feet in height and rather slim, with dark hair and about 2o years old. The one who first attacked Galloway is short and heavy set, is round laced with a sandy musrache, and wore a cap. The other three were young men. She thinks she would recognize all the men asain. but don't think she ever saw them before last night. From the woman's description of the men and from other circumstan ces there is much cause for a plausi ble suspicion as to who two of the men are. It has been decided that a Pittsburgh detective be employed. The whole community is. greatly excited over the affair. Such bold and daring robbery has seldom had its mrallel in this county. It is thought the men were not profession al robbers. DIKES ON THE MISSISSIPPI BROKEN. II DESTRUCTIVE FLOOD! Tli Nation Gnert.

A special from Long View, Texas, furnishes particulars of a revolting crime com mitted near Breckville. A white man named Sloan, who with his family had moved into the neighbor hood to pick cotton for a Mr. Hill, had an altercation with a man named Lum White, and the latter endeav ored to punish Sloan's children. Be ing prevented by the mother and daughter, a girl of nineteen years of ajre, ho succeeded in enticing tlie lat ter into a deep ravine, whree, with the assistance of his wife, he outrage ed her person. Then, usinghi8 pock et knile, cut her bowels open length wise and across, deliberately cutting off pieces of the entrails as they pro truded and scattering the fragments far and near. lie then cut the girl's throat from ear to ear. At the inquest White's wife con fessed to all of the revolting details, when a young man named Hart, in censed at the story of fiendish bru tality, shot the negro dead. The wife of Lum and an old negro man who lived with them were started on their way to uarthage, but a crowk met tlie escort and took the prisoners out and shot them. A Steamship Ixwt. Washington. An old gentleman from the interior of Ohio, arrived here a few days azo with $17,000 in United States six per cent bonds which he purshased in 1861, and which were called in July last He first visited the loan division, where he said he came to obtain gold for his bonds, as he paid gold for them When told that a draft on the Uni ted States Treasurer was as good as gold, and he would not listen to any explanations regarding an equiva lent in another lorm. lo-day, a little before noon, he appeared with a large leather valise, in which he carried off the full amount of his claim in S20 gold pieces, weighing in all about seventy-five pounds. He became very much ' provoked with Treasurer Gilfillin when that officer endeavored to persuade him to accept drafts and have them cashed when he reached home, reit erated that he came here for gold and declined to take anything else, He staggered under his heavy load as far as Assistant Treasurer Wy- man's room, where he expressed a wish to count his treasure before leaving town. A room was assign ed to him for the purpose. After the entire amount had been careful ly counted and found to be correct the old gentleman was persuaded to express the coin to his home. Dur ing the time he was engaged in counting the money a city detective who had been Burainoned remained near him and would have kept watch over him had he insisted upon parrying the money away. Dragged and Robbed, Chicago, October 20. A special this morning from Quincy states that the Sny levee has broken about two miles above focotl's landing. The exact location of the break can not be eletermined up to this time, because of the alarm prevailing among the people, who seem to be frantic, and unable to give particu- rs. Scotts landing is due west from Rockport four miles, and the country between the places is almost one complete slough, which will prove a receptacle for a largo body of the water which is now pouring m through the break. There was a large quantity of water in the Sny long before the break occurred, and this is now rising with great rapidity. The levee where the break occurred is lined with timber on either side, the soil being sand)- and of poor material for resistance. As soon as the alarm was given the people in the vicinity began to seek places of safety, and to drive their stock to hiuh sround. The crevasse is said to be two hundred leet wide and constantly increasing. Word has been sent to all of the inhabitants oi the valley to prepare for the worst. The flood at this time will prove more disastrous than the great flood of last spring. The large corn crops on the bottom lands had not yet been secured, and hundreds of thous ands of bushels were lost, and to acid to the general destruction the rise in the river has conic on the jeople so suddenly and so unexpectedly that the bottoms are still full of cattle, horses and other live stock. It will be impossible to save either or live stock and in many cases the farmers will lose even their household enecta. The railroad feight houses and other houses along the levee lront are en tirely surrounded by water and many of the. floors are covered and from some of them everything has been removed. The island between the bay and the river is completely submerged, with the exception of a small piece of ground in the rear of the marine ways. People living on this island have all been compelled to leave as the water rose so rapidly yesterday that it now covers the floors of all buildings situated there. Across the river the low land.; are nil irmn i1:tvl tr the blufik Many hogs and cattle have been drowned, and many more killed by railroad trains, the animals going on tne em bankment, that being tlie only ground that can be found above water. Almost all the lniiaonanis lave moved to the bluffs. IiOnetree rairie. commencing about five miles north on the Missouri side is underwater a distance of twelve miles, the water being in some pro- lortions of it almost up te the sec ond stories of thv houses. At the State fish pond, ten miles south of Quincy, the situation is most alarm ing. Commissioner Birlett has used every eflbrt to save t!ii fish, but his work is but halt completed, i ne water is within six inches of the top of theSny levee near Still well's farm, at the head of the levee, and it is thought that a break must soon oc- cur. should tnis uuce piace, a nan a million native fish and a thousand German karys will be carried away. The Warsaw levee about Quincy, which reclaims seventeen thousand acres of land, broke last evening, and an immense voulme of water is now pouring through the crevasse and rapidly spreading over the country. This is the most productive farming land in the State. A large propor tion of it was sown in winter wheat This has all been destroyed, and the damage done to farmers in this vi cinity can hardly be estimated. Al though the backwater from the sloughs and runs had covered a Dortion of this tract, many lammes on higher ground, when the alarm i reached them left everything! and fled to the bluffs for safety. Railroad property on the Missouri side will suffer heavily. The tracks of the St Louis, Keokuk and North western Railroad and several Jeet under water.

Knights Templar, died. Mr. Brotherton was one of the bett known and respected citizens of the county. To-day as the remains were about to be transferred to the Methodist Episcopal Church, the trustees refused, without any expla nation whatever, to permit the use of tho edifice for the funeral services, causing great surprise and indigna tion among the friends and relatives of the deceased. However, the Second Presbyterian Church people welcomed with open doors the Knights Templar, "and they con cluded their solemn services in that building. A serious eruption is now threatening among the Metho dist congregation, as nearly all the prominent Masons who are disci nles'of Wesley, as well as other prominent Methodists, talk of leav ing the church. An Artilleryman loses Iloth Hands. Yorktown, Oct. 2 Yesterday when Governor Ludlow and staff of New Jersey rode up to the New Jer sey camp they were receivetl by an artillery'salute by the Camden com pany. One of the guns having be come heated, the gunner was unable, to keep his hand over the priming hole, and lie removed it just as Pri vate Disborough, of Trenton, was ramming home the charge.

A singular sight was seen atone of the tables of the Union Depot dining-room this morning, it being a girl of ID years with handcuffs on and in charge of two deputy sheriffs. The culls were taken off while she ate and put on immediately afterward. She was arrested iu the southwestern part of the State on a charge of horse steal ing and had made several attempts to escape from the officers. She had hair as black and coarse as an In dian's, matted over her head, and hanging down her back ; her cheek bones were high, and she had small, piercing gray eyes aud a very large mouth, but regular teeth. Around her neck she had a red shawl pin ned tightly, which gave her face a very savage appearance, although she had a white complexion. She wore a homespun dress and a pair of hobnailed shoes, and her hands looked aa coarse as eagle's talons. i more and Cumberland Valley rail- roau wus inrown iaom toe tracK six miles north of this place last night by means of pieces of limber wedged in the cattle guards.
