"We want to put tie ? Republican." into the
" hands of as many of the voters of this county
i "as we possibly? can during the coming cam-
" paign. It is the surest and best method, of
reaching the minds of the people in a political
, contest, and those who have the success-of their
" cause at heart should always make it a point to
use all honorable means in their power to in-
, crease the circulation of their, county paper.
, Will you help us? that's the question. - Can't
each of you get us one additional subseribei?

Disgraceful. The House of Representatives
of the present Congress, has been the scene 6(
." more disgraceful brawls, than have occurred ip
that body since the organization of our Govern
ment. On Friday last, in the course of debate
. upon a question relating to the Covode Com
t jnittee, Mr. Tappan, who, having obtained, the
. floor, yielded it, as he had a right to do, to Mr.
, Train of Massachusetts. Mr. Houston of Ala-
bama, in a most unjustifiable way objected to
this arrangement, and continued talking in spite
C of many calls to order. .When Mr, Train was
. able to make himself heard, he remarked that
, lie should consider himself guilty of gross in
-propriety as a membef and .a gentleman; if he
r insisted on speaking when he had no nght to
the floor. ' To this" perfectly justifiable remark
. Mr. Houston, in that bullying spirit so common
: with Southern.' members, chase to take excep
tion, and asked if it was meant to apply to him?
Mr. Train replied thatwhat he said he meant,
and should stand by it- Whereupon the other
called him a disgraceful liar and scoundrel. A
1 scene ensued which, except that blows were
wanting! would be considered anywhere else a
' row, and one that ought to be suppressed by a
squad of policeman. ' Mr. Houston, at length',
asked pardon" of the House, for a violation of
of the rules, but offered fio apology to the gen
tleman whom he had so grossly insulted. The
only acknowledgement he' will make to hirri,
probably, willbe to express through a friends
'( wish, which he knows will not be gratified, that
' they should fire pistols at at each other at a dis
' tance of twelve" paces." "V ,', , !

Ahother Good Indication. The Al
bwy Statesman, a loading and earnest
Fillmore paper in 1856, andheretofore op
posed to the Republicans, comes ap prompt
ly and heartily t0 the support of "Honest
Abe,". It justly pronounces him "a firm
friend, and yet not implacablo to an ene
my, consistent politician, a good citizen
and an honest patriot."
What Southern Papers Say of
The LouisvIe Journal, a Beli and Ev
erett organ of large circulation and influ
ence' bears the. following yoltintarv tesii-
ihe Republican organs, by jotnraon con
sent,- designate their rfamlidate for the
Presidencey "us. Honest' Old Abe." We
are by no means disposed to deny bis rigbt
to the designation. We know him person
ally and have observed his public, course,
and however strongly we may condemn
some of the doctrines to which he is com
mitted, we hare at no time seen reason to
doubt his honesty. . We believe that, he
has the good of bis country at heart :
Thus much we take pleasure in saying in
his behalf.
The Augusta Chronicle and Sentinel, a
leading Georgia journal, says that "the
Chicago ticket is confessedly a very strong
one, and Liucoln, a rough specimen of the
Western Hoosier, will sweep the North
West like a herd of wild buffalo on the
prairies. ' Against all comers tve consider
him certain to carry Ohio, Michigan, Iowa,
Minnesota, Maine, New Harashire, Ver
mont, Massnclisetts, and New York 108
votes." The battle . field, our Sothern
contemporary thinks will be the States of
Pennsylvania and jNew Jersey.
The Paris Citizen, a Kentucky oppo
sition paper, speaks of Mr. Liucoln as a
man of ability, ot great natural force . of
intellect, and adds: " . - . ;
' ' We herd one of the discusions between
him and Donglas in the famous campaign
of 1858, and we certainly regarded htm
as a full match, at least, for that distin
guished politicao.- Ther are some things
in the personal etiaracter and career of Mr.
Lincoln which will give him great popu
larity, if they do not excite enthusiasm
among the people. Born of humble pa
rentage, and passing tho years of Ins child
hood, youth and early manhood amid the
hardships of the -backwoods of Kentucky,
Indiana and Illinois, acquiring an educa
tion by his own labors as best he could, and
ijradiially working his vfsxy to distinction,
bis life has been one well calculated to ex
cite the adra:ration and sympathy of voters,
most of whom are themselves workwo
men. When to this is added the purity
-of his private life, the. general recognition
of which has given him in his own State,
the soubriquet of "Honest Old Abe," we
are compelled to admit that tho Chicago
Convention has nominated the very- hard
fst man to beat that it could possibly have
given us.
The Baltimore Patriot, a leading op
position journal of Maryland, speaks in
high commendatiion of the character and
talents of Mr. Lincoln, and says that though
opposed to extension of slavery into free
territory, just as Mr. Clay was, yet he is a
State-rights man of the strictest sect.
1 he Patriot adds :
- He is also the sworn enemy of Execu
tive and Legislative corruption, and has a
character for personal integrity unimpeach
able: His popular sobriquet is, "Honest
Old Abe." There can be lirtle doubt, but
that this man of the working- people, the
artificer of his own fortunes from poverty
to competence, from the lowest to the
highest position, will meet with the cordial
sympathies of the laboring masses every
where, whether ttiey support uiin political
ly or not.
The Patriot also says it has been inform
ed by oue of the delegates to the late
Chicago Convention that the Committee
were appointed, to convey to Mr. Lincoln
the official notice of his nomination as
their candidate for President, repaired to
Springfield,' III., in the fulfillment' of this
duty.- He staled that Mr. L. resides in
comfotrable mansion in the suburbs of the
city, and the Committee proceeded to his
residence, they attracted much attention.
His neighbors, knowing that Mr. Lincoln
was a strictly temperance man, at once
dispatched theirservants with waiters cover
ed with bottles- of wine, branday, whisky,
ec, to-enaule fcim to oner what they con
ceived was proper to these distinguished
cruests. Mr. Lincoln met the servants who
had the charge of these refreshments, and
requested them to say to his friends and
neighbors that he duly, appreciated their
kindness, but he could not consent to vio:
late a long established rule of conduct,
and that be should treat his guests with
plentiful draughts 6f delicious and pure
rce water. . ' - - .'

The Covode Investigation Developments.
No marvel the Democrats of the House I
fought off .the Speakership 'withd.espera-
tion, and that the f resident protested
against the, Covoda Uomnuttee! lue
rascaities jot tne Aaminisuation were
numberless and thej could only be longer
successfully covered up but by ho usual
democratic arrangement of committees.
Hence the protracted struggle for the ap
pointing power -m the House. . Helpers
Book was the statEing-norse used, ana
nothing .else, fear of exposure . being . the
real cause of agitation. 1ms fact time
has demonstrated.. ,
Every day the industrious Covode Com
mittee is bringing out some startling ras
cality in high places, and the stench of cor-
uption pervading the V hite House and tbe
Departments is insufferable. Democratic
witnesses, such as w endaii bcnnable, wal
ker, Fisher and others,' fasten the brand
of "oiEcial prostitution" upon the Admin
istration in bold characters. They give
tbe facts and figures, the programmes and
documents. These have been partially
given by telegraph as they have been dis
closed. Tbe full report of the Commitee
will amaze the country.'
We will refer to a few of the recent dis
closures in brief. Mr. David Webster,- of
Philadelphia, testified with great reluct
ance, that Attornev tieneral black propo-
sen to Mr. Forney through him, to give
Mr. F. the printing -of the Post Office
blanks, worth $80,000, in case he would
change his course and support the admin
istration ! Mr. Black gave assurances
that he was fully authorized to make the
agreement. Mr. . rorney refused the
bribe. - ' - - - "
Another case. The law requires that
contracts should invariably be given to the
lowest bidder.- W.C. Barnev. of N. Y,
testified before the .Committee that he
made proposals to carry the mails between
Ifew York, New Orleans, and Son Prau
cisco, for $178,200. David H. Johnson
put in a bogus bid of $162,000, and as
the lowest bidder sot the contract. He
soon notified the Government that lis
could not perform the contract. Barney
was nexi lowest and entitled to the con
tract. It was given to Vanderbilt for
$262,000' being $84,300 over Barney's
bid ! The Administration needed Van
derbilt's influence in Congress, hence his
rewnrd. Johnson received $30,000 for be
insr the tro-between. Such' are the facts
sworn by Barney. .
Llwood i! isher has been before the Uo-
vode Committee and made an exposure of
"the prostitution of the diplomatic and
postal powers of the Government to rob
one Company for the benefit of another,
composed in part of the United States
Senators. buch is the lano-nan-e cf tne
Democratic witness who was one of the
Trustees of the' Sloo Company, for run
ning mail steamers from New York and
JNew Urleans to Aspinwall. It appears
that Buchanan broke the faloo contract,
and in violation of law gave the job to
company of favorites, consisting in part
of benators Benjamin and olidell ot .Lou
isiana. The Treasury sunered a quarter
of a million . per year . in ; consequense
JLionjr before the route was ready tor use
the mail contract was given to the compa
ny, and $250,000 per annum paid them,
although postages amounted to only $5,-
Ihe latest piece ot fraud and corrup
tion discovered by the Committee regards
the late (Jonnuticut election, it seems
1200 Irish voters were exported from New
York city into Conneticut who voted at
various towns and cities; and the evidence
p-oes to show that their expenses were d
frayed out of the Federal Treasury ! It
was such hordes of fraudulent voters that
swelled the Democratic aggregate beyond
all precedent, and came near overwhelm
ing the Kepubhcan ticket.

tration! Cleveland Leader.

of Ohio, Gov. Dennison has appointed
Messrs. John H. Klippart, Sullivan D. Har

First Ascertain the history of the iu
traduction of the pleuro-puenmonia, or
"cattle-plague, into IN ew .hngland. , As

bv personal inspection of diseased cattle,
Second Ascertain fully, by personal in
spection, the morbid anatomy of tbe affec
ted parts; and attend as many post-mor

tary or convenient. : ..
Third Ascertain what effect, if any,
and what kind of medical treatment has
been administered. Ascertain also what
sanitary measuies have been adopted, and
wim wnai success; also what measures
have been determined upon . to arrest the
progress of the disease. - Dotermine as ac
curately as may be the manner of infection
or communication cf this disease from one
animal or herd to another. :

results of the disease, aud tho action and
results of the committees appointed by
tho recent Legislatures of Massachusetts
and Connecticut. .

Mr. Smith, of Va., said that Mr: Cobb
might pass for an old rat himself,' but cer
tainly he (Smith) was not an old rat. He
had come to the conclusion to support the
bill for a Government Printing Office. He
was sorry that Mr. Haskins had spoken of
tbe President with so much passion and
and feeling. ; He could not hang a dog on
such testimony as that of Mr. Wendell.
It was bad taste to scatter partizan arrows
at the President in his attempt to degrade
him, when he (Haskins) for a cause yet un
explained, gave the contract for binding to
friend at a higher price than was ottered
by a responsible bidder. Besides Mr. Has
kins had voted for Mr. Defrees for Printer
after he had proposed to the Republican
caucus to give half the profits for partizan
purposes; and yet the gentleman stands
up here with a swagger and arraigns the
President for dividing the jobs, legitimate
ly within his gifts, among his gifts, among
his own friends instead of among his bitter
political enemies 1 ' '
Mr. VallanJigbam spoke in favor of a
Public Printing Office. ', . . ;
Mr. Prvor spoke in the same way, nnd
complained of the Presideut neglecting his
duty in not informing Congress that tbe
amount appropriated for post office blanks
was excessive, instead of parceling the sur
plus among partizan Presses. . . '
A running debate ensued between Mes
srs. Hine Caldwell and Burnet, in which
the latter maintained that the President
had no control of the matter, and that it
was the duty of Congres to correct any
corruptions. .'.','
Mr. Pryor in the course of bis remarks
said that the evidence uncontroverted, that
the President said to tbe gentlemen who
executed the blanks, "Here are $30,000
for your services, nnd here are $20,000 to
be distributed between tbe Pennsylvaman,
Argus and Medary s paper in Ohio.
Mr. Burnet said if such testimony exis
ted he had not seen it. He did not, how
ever, question it for he knew nothing at all
about it.
Mr. Florence was in favor of the estab
lishment of a Government Printing Of
fice. Mr. Burnot expressed the hope that Mr.
Pryor, the next time he charged corruption
on the administration, would be belter
informed as to facts. . ' "
Mr. Pryor acknowledged his indebted
ness for the advice. Let the House order
a committee and make him chairman, and
he would prove what he said.
Mr. Burnet said if the gentlemen aecu
sed the President he would vote for anoth
er committee. If the corruption exists
let him be arraigned, impeached and dis
graced. If the gentleman desire to show
their zeal it would be better for them to
fire broadsides at the Republican party in
stead of getting up family squabbles. -
Mr. Pryor replied that he was fighting
on bis own individual responsibility and in
defense of the interests of the people.
He concived it sound policy that the De
mocracy should wash their hands , of all
corruption. ". : -' ! -
- After further discussion Mr.' Haskin
closed ' the . debate, contending that the
President knew cf the profits of the Post
Office printing; aud stating that he would
vote against all schemes of extravagance
and corruption coming from either Demo
crats or Republicans. '

Senate.- Mr. Slidell, from tbe Commit
tee to investigate corruptions in public
printing, made a majority report to tbe ef
fect that any moneys paid by Wendall
were in accordance with a bargain, and
he paid for any political purposes, it was
entirely vofuntary,and without tbe knowl
edge of any officers of the Government.
The report condemns the present system
of printing as tho worst that could have
been adopted ; exonerates the Presisent
from any knowledge of the matter, reflects
severely on the testimony of Weudall, and
concludes with a resolution that tiia Com
mittee be instructed to inquire into the ex
pediency of providing for the printing be
ing done by contract, or otherwise.
Mr. King made a minority report to the
effect that the testimony shows clearly that
large sums have been paid to the printer
for the support of party papers and to in
fluence elections, and that the payments so
made were known and assonted to by the
President. The majority agree to the res
olution nppended to the majority report
Mr.' Anthony urged a complete reform
in tho public printing. He thought that
the newspapers that could not support
themselves wero of no use to any party,
and that the printer to the Senate having
violated tbe law by transfering the print
ing, the office should be declared vacant.
The subject was postponed till to-morrow's
executive session.

Cattle Disease—Gov Banks'
The cattle disease has appeared' in tbe
neighborhood of Newark, New Jersey, and
out of seven cattle attacked, four had died
up to the 31st "ult. Examinations show
the disease to be the same as thai in Mass
achusetts, and" the disease .is suposed to
have been introduced by ao -animal from
that State.
Great anxiety on the subject of the cat
tle disease is felt in. Maine, and the Gover
nor has aPDointed a commission of three
to visit Massachusetts for the purpose of
investigating and reporting upon the sub
ject, with a view to the dissemination of
the mformatiotion acquired among the
people of .Maine.. , -
1 he message of Gov. Banks to tbe special
session of the Legislature of Massachusetts
on the subject of the- Alarming Pleuro
pneumonia, states that the Commissioners
appointed under the statue have examined
all suspected herds, and many cattle have
been isolated by their order. - Eight hun
dred and forty-two have been' slaugtered,
for which compensation has been allowed
by the Commissioners to the amount of
$20,432. The Governor urges the ' Legis
lature to regulate or prohibit, so far as it
can be wisely and properly done, the expor
tation of cattle, in which tbe seeds of dis
ease may possibly exist, from Massachusetts
into other fetates, and to enlarge the pow
ers of towns, : so - that they may protect
themselves from invasion by infected cattle,
and controle the courso of the disease
when it is discovered within their limits.
Also, to make the sale of a sick or diseased
animal a criminal offence by statue law.
Gov. Banks also suggests a thorough scien
tific investigation of the character of the
disease. ' v ' '.'.'-'"
According to the message the disease
was introduced into Massacbsetts the 23d
May, 1859; with an importation of Dutch
cattle from Holland, and the distemper at
present existing can be traced to no other
cause than this importation. , The symp
toms of the disease do not essentially dif
fer from the description given by English
medical authors, of the disease called
plcuro-pneumonia, as it exists in England.
Baseless Calculations.
The Cleveland Plaindealer is attempt
ing to cypher up the election of Douglas
without his obtaining a boufhetn vote.
It claims that he can carry tbe following
States: ' , - - '
Maine. i -. " ,- 5 I Indiana 1
New Hampshire 8 Illinois .1
Rhode Island 4 I Wisconsin .... 5
Connecticut .. 6 Iowa : 4
New York .. 35 I Minnesota .... .-..3
New Jersey 7 I Oregon - 3
Pennsvlvania 27 California 4
Ohio : .23 :
After thus cyphering the election of
Douglas by the vote of States, which ha
can't gel, the Plaindealer goes on to say
that "the friends of Douglas confidently
claim that if nominated at Baltimore-be
will, in addition to the above, carry every
Southern State 120 electoral vote ma
king a total of 279." '.:" --I
Hal ha! ha!. .:.';.;
Douglas is a Minority ih Illinois is
1858. The Statesman attempts to make
it appear that Douglas carried a majority
of tho popular vole of Illinois in 1858.
The following summing up of the vote
will show how groundless is the pretense:

The N. Y. Times for Lincoln.
The New York' Times, formerly a powf
erful Douglas organ, has declared in favof
Lincoln for' the Presidency. " The Times
talks thus: '' ' , ' . ' . '. '. i
According to 'present appearances,' we
have no hesitation in saying; that 'the suc
cess of the Republican' ticket promises td;
be the only' practical ' mode of escaping
the dangers "which menace the peace and
prosperity of the country. It seems prob--able
that the only choice which reflecting
men will be allowed to make in the com
ing canvass, will be between electing Mr,
Lincoln, and thus committing the Federal
Government to the hands of an able, hon
est' aud upright citizen, or seeing IhePresr
idency scrambled for on the floor of Con
gress, and made' the prize of venality, or
the sport of men who' speculate profession
ally in fhe misery accLdislress of their
