What tho Democrats noed now to carry tho county, is good solid work from now until October. Cheering. Prom all parts of the county comes tho cheering news that the Democrats are enthusiastic and united upon the whole ticket. All tho Districts in tho county, it is believed, except three, will give Democratic majori ties. Put the Democratic ticket down far 500 majority, anyhow. Democratic Meeting. A Democratic meeting will beheld at tho Court Houso, in this place, Tuosday evening, August 31st, 188o! at o'clock, which wilt be address od by Hon. Jake Jackson, our candi date for Governor, C. C. Watt?, our candidate for Attorney-General, and Major James M. French, of Mercer county. Turn out, everybody, and give these eminent speakers a full house. There may be other speakers present. How Do Yon Like Hlin? We find the following in the Park eraburg Sentinel. Wc suppose the ed itor knows whereof he speaks, and wo know ho is responsible for all ho utters hi his paper. "In tho dark days of 1861-2, Geo. t.Sturgiss called the Uniou soldiers Lincoln s hirelings;' said Jeff Davis was a patriot and Abraham Lincoln was ausurper and an ignorantclown. Wow, go up and vote for him, Repub licans. Take your medioino liko lit tie men'. Trembling* The Republicans of this county are trombling in their boots. They see nothing but a Waterloo defeat staring them in the face. It is now conceded on all sides that tho pros poet of electing tho wholo county Democratic ticket is flattering. All that is needed to give the Dem ocrats a rousing majority in old Ma son, is good organization, and to see that overy Democratic votor in the county is at tho pulls on election day. Republicans are now bragging that they will swallow up the Greenback party of this county, this Kali. Can It bo possibly that Greenbackors can vote for Republicans, who havo been their most invoterate enemies?' I'm tin Republican party to their record. Do not be drawn into side issues. Word* ofliit'cr Front Ohio. The Democratic Executive com mittee at Washington has been re ceiving words of ch^er from Ohio. Up to the present time the Democrats have not shown much disposition to make an aggressive fight in Ohio this fall. Indiana has chiefly en grossed their attention, and the de termination exists among the leaders to carry that Stato by an ihctotmed majority over 1876. But late reports from Ohio are of such a hopeful char acter that the question of giving the Democracy there assistanco from the outside is being discussed. Informa tion recently received from Garfield's district proves that the Republicans there who demanded his retirement in 1874 and 1876 because of his con nection with CroditMobilier and tho DeGolycr paving contract, will not vote for him for President. Garfield's majority fell from 20,935 in 1872, to 12,539 in 1874, a loss of 8,409. Hayes' majority over Tilden in Ohio in 1876 was 7,516. Tho German vote of Cin cincinnati it is reporUd, will bo cast largely for Hancock, and there is overy reason to believe that with a good organization and a determined effort tho State can be carried by tho Domocrats. The Outlook* The political outlook, so far as the Democratic party is concerncd, is most favorable from all points that wo hear from, and within tho past week wo have heard from all points of the compass. Tho North is alive and active; the Wost and East are laboring day and -night; the South will be solid, rrhile tho enthusiasm in all sections has not boen equalled since 1852. The people are at work, and are far in advanco of either the politicians of tho committees. Tbcy are tired of Radical misrule, oxtrav agance and corruption, and they (the people) are absolutely "howling" for reform, rotrenchmont, and a change of party control. They ap parently shout with one voice that twenty years is long onough for any clique to control and administer thoir uffnirs. They want a change, and are determined to have one.?Ex. Col. John W. Forney, one of the ablest and bravest Republicans in the United States is dealing sledge hammer blows for Hancock, ^fcfter Garfield's nomination, but before that of Hancock, he said somo kind things of Garfield. Rccontly in ex plaining his reason for supporting Hancock he said ho had not been in I Washington fivo times in ten years ' nlid had but little knowledge of tho corrupt career of the public men, and nono of tho actions of Garfield. He then goes on to say: "What it iB all men know now, ' and if I revolted from it, it was be jcauso I found it difforent from what II honestly beliovodittobo. General Garfield's accusors wero not Demo crats. Ho was brought to the bar by his own party, by tho Republican press and the Republicans of his own county, by the Republican commit tees of hia own Congressional district, by tho Republican Congress of which ho was a member and by a Republi can court of justice." Had this record been known at Chicago General Gar field could not have been nominated. Full information enables me to speak by the book when I assert that thero was not a Republican leador of auy note, equal to those on the ground to slay and thoso who came to savo Grant, that did not admit, on reflect ion, that Garfield's selection was a blunder and that that blunder was worse than a crimo. C. ?. Hogg, I'sq. We hopo it will be tho pleasure of our young friend, Charles E. Hogg, Esq., of Mason, to come up in this ond of the District on a canvassing tour.' He isa spirited young speaker and his speeches have a telling effect. Mr. Hogg camo within ono vote of being our District Elector, and this high compliment ought to bring him out in the campaign. This is a time when everybody must work. Let us hear from you, Charles. Visit the mountains.?Aldcrson Enterprise. It is the intention of Mr. Hogg to speak iti most of the counties of this District, and wo can assure tho ofli tor of tho Enterprise that he will be at Aldorson somo time during tho canvass. His whole heart is in the work. Itomoiubcr It. Every voter in tho land should re member that tho Democratic party is tho party of oconomy and reform. Since the Democrats have had con trol of Congress they havo saved to to tho taxpayers of the United Statos over otic hundred millions of dollars. When Hancock is President, and botli houses of Cogress Democratic, thore will be a still greater saving to the people; Expenses of all kinds j will bo cut down, and millions of dollars saved each year. Iiemomber it.?Ex. Republican speakers have tho hab it of dodging tho real issues before ! tho people. Do not permit them to do this, pin them down to their rec ord and hold litem there. If you have not organized your precinct thoroughly, do so at once.1 Delay not a moment. Be Gene?w* >> e appeal to our party speakers, to eschew all personal allusions to private character, upon the stamp.? If Republican speakers and editors choose to deal in personalities, don't reply in kind. No good is to be accomplished by such a course.? Let your wholo attack be upon the public record of their candidates, and it will bo onough to damn them in tbo eyes of all honest people. When a party resorts to traducing private character, it is an evidence that they are already whipped, and have no hopes of succoss. The Tribune-Moni tor was full of bile last week, and its course iacondemned by all well-mean ing men and good citizens. Let them rant and say what they ploase, let us stick to argument. The war is at last over, and the fellow who thinks it is hot had bet-! tergot a toy pistol and an old suit! of soldier clothes and get up a war of his own, and carry a mirror around, with him to see how ridiculous a figuro he will cut. Such a fellow would make an excellent scare-crow in a corft-field next spring. He1 might quote General Logan's Egyp tian talk-viz.: "If the-Lincoln hirelings should endoavor to pass through southern Illinois in an at tempt to invade and coerce the South they would have to pass over the dead bodies of the sons of Egypt." Thore is in New York a post of the "Grand Army of the Republic" known as the Dahlgren Post. It comprises soiiie 340 members. The commander of of the Post admitted to a reporter of one of the local pa pers the other day that some 200 of these intend to vote for Hancock, although there are only 12 Democrats in the entire 340. This exhibit justifies the generally accepted belief that a majority of even the Republi can ex-Union soldiers will vote for General Hancock. Tho Republicans affect not to think this possible; but tho Republicans are mistaken. There are two amendments to tho Constitution to be voted on at the October election. As no political question is involved in either of them, a vote for or against them can not be mado a political test. Many Democrats will voto for ono or both of tho amendments and many Repub lican on tho opposite side. The amendments were submitted to the people by a Democratic Legislature; but a discussion of their morits should bo kept above party. -?? * " * ' Did it ever strike you very forcibly that tho people who talk most about tho late war or, as they terra it, tho rebellion," did the least fighting? If not, make a noto of this, and when your hear thera talking loudly about tho war request tho fellows to show their wounds. We will wager that if they have any, nine ou t of ten aro in their backs. Just six months from the fourth of noxt month Genoral Wiufiold S. Han cock will be inaugurated President! of the United States and Commander in-Chief of the Army and Navy.

The RepubUcan District lEatiil cation Unsco?Kej>rc?ciitacivc8 from Hell's llottom and Kwam ?oodle-A Haiti Disperses Uie Motley Crowd. [From .our Regular Correspondent.] Washington, Aug. 21st, 18S0. Washington was enlivened by a Republican demonstration last night. They called it a Grand Rally and ratification meeting. Tho front of the City Hall was decorated with flags. Gas jets woro so arranged as to lettor tho names of Garfield and Arthur. Numerous other lights and transparencies filled the immense portico of the District Temple of jus tico and cast their reflection on tho back of Vinnie Rccm'a statuo of Lin coln, toworing above tho vulgar dem onstration, from which be seemed to have forever turned away, and smi ling benignantly towards the south em part of tho union. Seeing only a large number of nurses with baby carriages, boys on velocipedes, with a sprinkling of men and their wives, I decided this was not the ratification and walked westward in the direc tion of the White House, where I saw an economical display of fireworks followed by a spiritless procession headed by a band of music which scorned to be all bass drums. I heard one Republican apologize for tho failure by the explanation that the people were not fully educated yet that later in tho campaign thoy would have a more rousing rally. It was indeed a very poor display, made up largely of colored lazaroni, very many of whom were more accustomed to the chain gang procession than to torch light.. parades. "Hell's Bot torn," Frog Level and Crow Hill wero largely represented, and formed hard looking crowd that made mon instinctively button their coats for tho bettor security of their watches Some of tho white porsons in lino woro awaro that tho beauty of the procession was marred by this disrep utable auxiliary, and just after the procession started, an effort was made on Fifteenth street to givo tho "Crow Hill Spider" Republican Club and its horrible brass band the grand bounce. This the processionists did not caro to do themselves, but a po lice officor waB culled upon to break the news gently to the presiding offi cer. Tho latter indignantly refus to retire, explaining that his clubdid not caro a continental about Garfield and Arthur, but thoy came out and hired a band to parade, and parado thoy would or "bust." That settled it, and they remained. Tho mana gers staled later in the oveninE, when called to account for the indignity, that they did not object to having tho club in line because of auy dis credit that its presence would rofiect upon the aflair; but because of the failure to notify the marshal ut the proper time of an intention to Par"( ticipate. The matter still remains unsettled. The procession, with tho exception of tho unploapantness re ferred to, moved quietly and reucbed the City hall about 9 o'clock, where a miscellaneous crowd had collected. On the Grand Stand were numerous orators, among Whom was the politi cal father, who with Eliza Pinkston procreated tho only fraudulent pres ident, John Sherman, to whom we are indebted for good crops. They wero getting along pretty well with their oratory when b sudden rain camo up and compelled the boys and negre&ses to swim out. C. A. 8. Letter From Governor Mathews. The Democracy of New York city recently held a grand Hancock and English ratification meeting, at which a number of eloquent speefches were delivered and patriotic letters from distinguished gentlemen from diOoreat sections of the country wore read. In response to pn invitation to bti prosent, Govornor II. M. Math ews, of Wost Virginia, wrote the fol lowing timely and sensible letter: White Sulphur Springs, t W. Va., July 2G, 1880. J Slews. John McKcon, Edward Cooper and others, Co-mmittce: Gentlemen?In consequence of my absence from Wheeling, your letter inviting mo to address a general meet ing of the Democracy of tho city and county of New York, at the Academy of Music, on the 28th irist., did not reach me until this morning. My engagements are now such as to de prive mo of the pleasure of being present oh that occasion. I regret that West Virginia will not be tnen present, that you might learn from some of her citizens with what grat ification the Democracy here receiv ed the announcement of tho action of the Convention, And with how great earnestness we join in the ap proval of tho nomination of Hancock and English. The cordial support which will be given to this ticket by the Democracy of tho South should convince every fair-minded man of tho North of tho loyalty of our sec tion and of her sincere acceptance of all the results of tho war. There are somo misguided though honest men of the North who have doubted the sincerity of our professions, and who, while realizing tho importance of changing tho administration, have hesitated for this reason to aid in re turning tho Democratic Tparty to power. The view which prevUils general ly, almost universally, in the South, may bo briefly stated. For years a difference of opinion obtained be tweon the two sections as to the prop er construction of the Constitution. All peaceable means of adjusting this difference wero resorted to and failed. Peace conferences and com promise measures were alike unavail ing, and at last, and of necessity, the controversy was referred to the tri bunal of arms. Aftor a war of four years, illustrated by unsurpassed gallantry and devotion on both sides, the decision was rendered, and against us. Wo accepted that decis ion in perfect good faith. Tho doc trine of secession was utterly over thrown anc} was never again to bo asserted. The institution of slavery was destroyed forever, and all that secession and slavery properly im plied was gono. We gave our alle giance fully and sincorely to tho Constitution as it now is, and for yeartf we havo desired td aid to the extent of our ability to promote the welfaro of our common country. The test of Southern loyalty pre scribed by the Republican party, and which wo shall always rojoct, is not an unquestionable devotion to tho Constitution but a willingness to en dorse evfir? Republican mcasuro however it may be at vnria'nce with the spirit and letter of tho fundamen tal law. Wo believo that tho rule of construction of the Constitution heretofore insisted upon by tho De mocracy at;o still tho true rules of its construction, (hat tho principles of government declared by the fathers, viz: that the powers of government shall bolimited by Constitutional bar riers; that tlie men of cnch locality shall be no privleged class, either of individuals or corporations?are still tho correct principles of free government, and when applied to the changed circumstances and con ditions as thoy are produced by an advanced civilization and increased population that they are sufficient for all time. With very few, if any, exceptions the people pf the North who were of real service to the cause of the Union, whether in councilor in the field, un derstand tho sentiments and purposes of the people. And if the men who achieved tho victories of tho war could have proscribed tho torms of a restored Union we would long since havo been in the enjoyment of a per manent peace and fratei'nal feeling throughout the land. Tho action of the National Conven tion in placing at the head of the ticket tho soldier-statesman and stainless gentleman, Winfield Scott Hancock, has already accomplished moro than seemed probablo a few months sinco. It has harmonized and united tho Democracy in all sec tions of the country. It has inspired tho patriotic masses with tho confi dence that tho hour is almost at hand when a candidate fairly clocted will securo to thorn tho advantages of a constitutional administration, and when peace and reconciliation and material prosperity will become real ities to bo enjoyed by overy citizen of this greut Republic. The election of the Republican ticket would bo only a prolongation for four years of the llaycs dyuasty, which is alike distasteful lo Repub licans and Democrats, and be a per [petuationof sectionalism which, in the o]iii>iou of tho bpst men of the Republican party as well as of all Democrats, should now cease. The election of Hancock and English, al ready assured, tVill demonstrate the sincerity of the South and hor devo tion to the Union, that wo are in i truth one people, under thp old flag and forever united, It will Keep all in safety, and the chairs bf Justice supplied with worthy mou, plant love amongst us, Throng our largo teniples with tho shoiits <n peace And not our streets with war. In haste, very trulv yours, H. M. Mathews. Why The Mouth In SoHd. % No intelligent voter can read the figures presented below without grasping the solution of tho problem as to why the South is arrayed in sol id phalanx against the methods of the Republican party. That party for years has upheld the carpetbag governments in tho States formerly in secession whilo they plundo'red an already impoverished people, and piled debt upon debt, until the whole country was plunged into a great financial panic. Even for venrs after the people had arisen and voted the carpetbaggers out of power, tho Re publican party by moans of tho bay onet nnd the returning boards kept the thieves in high places of trust, until tho South was almost entirely catch up by the ravenous crew of "statesmen" who thrived under Grant's two administrations. These figures represent the load of debt the South is carrying uutil this day. Do you wonder why tho South is sol id tor, good and economical govern ment?
