Naturalized citizens, otherwise quali fied, bat not registered, can secure their votes under the fourth section of the Regis try Law. Geart and Williams are worthy the support of every loyal man in the State. Then let bo Republican remain at home on Tuesday nest. BlT a few days yet remain in which you can work for the success of our ticket. Then buckle cn your harness and go to work, and viitory is ours. Republicans ! go to work. You can still do much for the success of our candi dates between this and election Jay. See that every voter is at the polls. Remember, every native born citizen is entitled to vote at the coming election, al though not registered, but otherwise qua'i fied. See fourth section of Registry Law. Citizen of Pennsylvania, if another war were to fall upon the Commonwealth, would you feel safe with John W. Geary or Asa Packer in the chair, in view of their past records ? ' Tuesday next is the day of election. It behooves every Republican to buckle on .his armor and be ready for the fizht. A long pull, a strong pull, and a pull altogether, and the victory is ours. Younq men, you who are between the ages of twenty-one and twenty-two years, under the fourth section of the Registry Law you can obtain your vote, although your naffio does not appear on the list of voters. - Active Republican, if you have neigh bors who arc indifferent as to the result on Tuesday next, we entreat you to see them and urge them to go to the polls. Every vote makes our victory more overwhelming and complete. Several of the leading Democrats of this place, acknowledged last week that they had not a ghost of chance of electing Pack er. AYith a full Republican vote polled, Packer will be beat at least 30,000. Let our friends remember this, and turn out to a man. Republicans, you have the numerical strength to elect the Governor, Supreme Jude and the Legislature. The interests of the State and Union demand that the Repulicans should hold these three branches of our State Government. Then tarn out in your might, and secure the much desired result of the friends of freedom, law and order. It is stated that Aa Packer's dear friend, Jeff. Davis, is coming home to aid him in bis .efforts to be elected Governor of Penn sylvania. This announcement has so unset tled Asa's mind, that he is undecided wheth er he will vote for himself in Mauch Chunk or Philadelphia. Poor "Pride of the Val ley," we really pity you in your dilemma; but our advice is that you vote where you can do so for the least amount of taxes for about $3,95. Upon what qualifications does Cyrus L. Pershing's claims for Supreme Judge rest? Was he ever a judge ? Is he an eminent lawyer? Did he ever conduct an important case? lias he had any experience for the responsibilities of a seat upon the Supreme Bench? All these questions must be an swered in the negative. How can any law yer desire the elevation of such a man to the Bench? If doL then can he vote for Mr. Pershing? Republican's, wake up! action is the word ! Let every man do his duty ! Let not the good cause languish. You have a Governor and Judge of the Supreme Court to cleet. Defeat would be the worst calamity that could befal our State and the whole country, just uow. Then we say a gain, go to work and get out every voter in your district, aud you will secure a grand and glorious victory over rebels and copper heads combined. Victobt is ours! From every section of the State comes the cheering intelligence that the usual Eepublicap majority will be given for the State ticket, if our party friends will only go to the polls and rote. Considering the apathy which usuaJIy fol lows a loug and severely contested Presiden tial campaign this will be the one of the greatest victories ever achieved by the Re publican party. To the indomitable energy ot the Chairman of our State Committee, Hon. John Covode, must be attributed this triumph, in the ua. hon-- may. be be rTiiv 3 f? hmV the rtbel Pemocru.-v. Taxpayers t Remember that Asa Tack er took $3,(XH) for fifty-four days attendance, while a member of Congress spending the remainder of the nine months' at home speculating in coaL '- Poor Men ! Remember that Asa Pack er, since his nomination for Governor, has increased the freight on coal 75 cents a ton thus taking that much from the pockets of the poor consumers of coal to aid him in defraying the expenses of the present politi cal campaign. Soldiers ! Remember that Asa Packer sympathised with the rebels during the war, and that he went to Europe in order to e- vade rendering any assistance to the Boys in Blue, while defending the Union and the Constitution. Laboring men! Remember that Asa Packer tiied to make the boatmen work lor starvation prices, so as to enable him to live at ease and be clothed in fine linen, while his workmen were living iu shanties and clothed in rags. Farmers ! Remember that Asa Packer, the millionaire, shirks the payment of taxes upon his immense wealth by a pretended residence in Philadelphia, thus nearly doub ling the taxes of the farmers in Carbon county, where bis family reside in a palatial residence. Loyal men ! Remember that Asa Pack er refused to pay the county taxes assessed against him in Carbon county, and yet he volnntaiily and freely maintains, in elegant style. stMauch Chunk, the neice and broth er of the Arch traitor Jeff Davis. Voters of Pennsylvania! is the man who takes $3,000 for 54 day's services, who puts an extra tax of 57 cents per ton on the poor mans' coal, who sympathised with the rebels during the late war, who tried to force laboring men to work at starvation prices for him, who shirks the payment of his taxes by a pretended residence else where, and who now maintains rebels and their friends free of charge, a fit person to occupy the Gubernatorial chair of this great and free State? Asa Packer seems to have a "constitu tional" objection to the payment of taxes. He moves to Philadelphia to escape con tributing out of his estate its share to the burdens of government ; and, still further, he does not allow the rich corporation of which he Is three filths owner, to pay its taxes to the State. It may not be generally known that the Lehigh Valley Railroad is to-day a debtor to the State for over $25,- 000, aim, notwithstanding its enormous gains, has refused to pny ; so that at the present time, in the court of Carbon county. there are pending two suits of the Common wealth vs. Lehigh Valley Railroad Compa ny. One of these is for $1,093 86, settled against it by the Auditor General and State Treasurer, lor tax on tonuage, so long ago as the 18th of October, 1SC6, and not yet paid. The other is for $19,31)2 50, settled against it March 4th, 1809. Qurry If it is now so difficult a proc"3s to compel the Lehigh Valley Railroad to pay taxes, how will it be if Mr. Packer should be governor, with an Attorney General of his own selec tion, the only person in a position to make that corporation pay ? : Why should Henry W. Williams be e lected Justice of the Supreme Court?. Be cause he is a sound lawyer, has had experi ence "on the bench, is tried and competent. And juHt because he is not eminent as a lawyer, because he ha not. had experience on the bench, because he is not tried, and not com potent, should Cyrus L. Pershing be rejected by the voters of Pennsylvania. It is not necessary to enlarge upou this sub ject There is not a voter in the State (or very few at least) who does hot know that it is of the highest importance to have on the Supreme bench men of the best legal ability, of experience and tried integrity. Judge Williams is such a man. Cyrus L Pershing is not. This makes the duty of every voter plain; ana if the people are true to their own and the interests of the State, Henry W. Williams will be triumph antly elected to the Sudgeship he now fills and honors by appointment. W HEN Mr. Clymer was up for Governor, it was discovered that he had voted against the final passage, in the Seuate, of the bill restoring to soldiers the right to vote of which they had been deprived by those Cop perhead J udes Woodward, Lowrie, and Thompson. That was a bad vote for lion. Hiester Clymer, and helped "lay him out" It now appears that Cyrus L. Pershing. Esq., then a Copperhead member of the House, had followed Clyuier's lead, and must share Cfymer's fate. It was a bad thing to try thus to punish soldiers; their least punish ment should be to be excused from govern ing, or being a J udge over those they thus wronged. ' Thire is as much point as truth in the remark of a coteinporary that with the ex ccpiion 01 a lew leaaers nere ana there, there is nothing, left of the old fashioned Democracy but five per cent of old Wh:g, fifteen er cent, of Know Nothinga and the balance made up from our Irish adopted citizens. Some of their best orators are remnants of the Whig party or of the "dark lantern" politics, for which Mr. Asa Pack er te.-tified his regard, when he bolted to one of their candidates from a regular Democratic nomination. Every Democratic Senator voted last winter against what is kown as the "Schuyl kill Mining Act" Had that Act been pass ed, and extended to Luxurne county, in all probability the Avoudale disaster would never hate occurred." Workingmert miners especially will not fail to see in what di rection their Interests lie. ' The Democracy will not protect them, as is evidenced by their united vote ou the "Schuylkill Mining Act." Let them remember this fact. Repi-blicans, the prospects of a glorious victory in October was never more promis ing. Be but true to yourselves and the cause of freedom to down-trodden humani ty you advncttte.and your victory on fbc VJtk will soml a thrill of rojok-hig throughout the Republic. f;c laffewan' gournaf, gfwrfleft, A curious charge is made against the Railroad King candidate of the Democracy that to prevent . unnecessary wear and tear of conscience he stceart by proxy. '"There is (says the Reading Time) a curi ous circumstance connected with the pay ment of Mr. Asa Packer's taxes, which heretofore has not been made public He does Dot, like other men, imifee Am own rt turn and swear to it, but' all this is done throueh another Derson hut Attorney. IS ow this is in direct violationof law aod yet for the last two years he has pursued this Course in the district where he professedly I resides in Philadelphia. Is it any wonder that, h rv na taxes, except the $8 95 on the silverware which he possesses t Ve make this statement without fear of contra diction, for the fact can be ascertained at the office of the U. S. Revenue Assessor of the First Congressional Discrict of Pennsyl vania. We challenge his political friend to to inquire into it. This is the way of "whipping the devil I round the stump" that none but a sharp witted fellow of tender conscience, like Asa, would have thought of. And this is the man the Democratic press tell us is going to put a check on official demoralization, if e- lected. An indignant taxpayer of Carbon county, while admitting that at one time Judge Packer did pay a large amount of tbe taxes of the county, complains that by changing his residence without changing his home, he thereby unjustly increased the taxes of the neighbors Ot his latuily. l'Or instancc.lt he paid One half thetaxesof the district be- I fore he changed his residence, the taxes of the people remaining are just doubled. The 1 taxpayers of the district claim that Mr. I Packer did not pay one Cent more taxes than did any other taxpayer, according to his wealth. He was assessed on $1,200,000 of Lehigh Valley Railroad stock, when it was known he owned 00,000 shares, which stock was then selling at $75, which would make the snug sum of $4,500,000, or $3,300,000 greater than the amount he was assessed. Not content with the saving such an under assessment would insure him, he leaves his fellow citizens to make up the tax levies which were based partially upon his wealth. and this is what the people of Carbon coun ty, aud - the honest taxpayers throughout the State, will remember when they vote on next Tuesday. Our friends in Philadelphia prombe not less than 5,000 majority for the Republican State ticket, and some even predict that it will reach 8,000. This is glorious and en couraging intelligence to our friends every where. Republicans of Clearfield county, we urge you every man to go to the polls on Tuesday next and do your part towards the triumphant election of our gallant stand' ard bearers, Geary and Williams. Your participation in this great and grand victory will be one of the most pleasing reoolicctiuus in after life. Remember this. During the rebellion, in a speech, John Metzgar, the present Democratic candidate for Assembly in the Lycoming district, said : "Let us join bands with the South " and put down the Republican party." The same spirit still pervades these friends of rebels, and the two are now working to gether to "put down" the gallant men who saved the Union from destruction. "Boys in Blue," remember this fact, and staud firmly by your gallant comrade, John W. Geary, on Tuesday next. He is worthy of your undivided support. The increased internal revenue receipts from tobacco during the fiscal year, ending June 30,1869 (mostly under GrantJ.amouut- ett to $4,0j2,U00. And the increased re ceipts from internal revenue during the present quarter over the corresponding pe riod of last year is estimated at ten millions of dollars, or at the rate of forty millions per' annum. Voter mark that ! and vote for Geary and Williams. Their triumphant e- lection will strengthen the hands of the Na tional Administration in its efforts to have the laws fully executed. Packer is daily growing weaker and weaker. Where he is best known there his party vote will be the lightest Honest men scorn him for his attempts to evade the payment of his taxes ; the laboring men de spise him for the manner in which his early fortune was wrung from their toil, while the leaders of the Democracy are down on him because he does not shell out a portion of his ill gotten wealth more freely for the ben efit of their pockets. : - ' ' " The Democratic party is the party of ex travagance. In our State Legislature, even while the Republicans have been in power, Democratic legislator were always the read iest to introduce and vote for the squander ing of money. Ic the last Legislature a Democrat introduced a bill to increase the pay of members to $1,500, and a large num ber of Democrats voted for it. To the credit of the Republican members they defeated it Allegheny county is fully aroused to the importance of the present political con test. Our friends there promise not less than 8,000 majority for Geary and Williams. Let the Republicans of Clearfield cotnebo'd ly up to the support of their Allegheny brethren, and cast a full and united vote for our excellent and worthy candidates. Ti e interests of the State demand this at our hands. Wx call attention to the address issued by Hon. John Covode, chairman of the State Central Committe. Let it be studied by ev ery voter.

Upon taking the Chair, Mr. McEnally made a tew timely, pointed and interesting remarks, and then introduccn to the meet ing His Excellency John W. Geary. The Governor is a tall,tioble looking man, and was received with three hearty cheers of weicome by the immense throng. Quiet being restored Governor Geary first alluded to the charge so generally made by the opposition, that the country was in a stale of financial ruin and di.siress. Said he hud traveled through out the Slate and nowhere had found any thing to justify such charge ; but, on the other hand, w herever he had been, business was as prosperous as in former times. He next referred to the oft repeated charges made against his administration in regard to the management of the finances of the State ; from which, a person believ ing the charges, might suppose that under his administration 'the State was plunged into debt and going speedily to financial ruin. So far from this being the case, he showed that, during his administration of less than three years, between four and five millions of dollars of the State debt had been paid, aod it we take into account the means on hand,' the amount of the reduction will be little less than six millions. This is a far greater reduction than was ever accomplished in the same time under any former adminis tration the debt having invariably been increased under Democratic rule, aiid re duced under Republican rule.' And at the sami time the State tax on Real Estate was ... , ,. , , i it .i i v entirely abolished. And all this has been accouQtiiished. notwithstanding tha exnendi- ture under recent acts of the Legiulature of five millions of dollars for the war debt, and nan a million ior tne estaonsiiment ot ooi- , m t ., . , , m . diers (Irnlians ae.hools. If the finanwa nf the State are managed with equal success in the future the entire State debt can be paid 1 for he would devote his remarks to the dis off in the course of twelve years. ' I section of the Democratic speeches and ,;vNext he spoke of the charges so frequent l.jy made agaiust him for granting pardons that by its too frequent use he abused the pardoning power. He proceeded to sho that this charge was groundless that the average number of pardons granted by him was much less than the number granted by any proceeding administration. And espe cially that the Democratic administrations of Bigler and Packer, which are referred to as models, had granted many more pardons in the 'same ' time, aud this too when the population of the State was much less than it is now. Also, that nine out of every ten that c'amored forpardonns were Democrats, and that three to one of the pardons grant- ed were to Democrats. In regard to the granting of pardons some of the uiost ab surd aod false stories have been circulated One, that a negro, sent to the Penitentiary from rranklin county, for an outrage com mitted upon three youi g white girls, had been pardoned by him. This story is utter ly false. The negro referred to is still in the penitentiary under sentence of the court, and not only, had not been pardoned, but never will be uudcrhis administration. lie believed the punishment in this case was not equal to the crime that was committed. Another storv. Dublished in Centra n. was that Twitchell, the Philadelphia niur- . ... ... . derer,secretly escaped by means of a pardon and was still alive. This absurd story was effectually answered by the Democratic flier iff and officers in Philadelphia, who had Twitchell in charge, and by others who knew him well, and who examined and identified him after he was dead. It was also charged upon him that he failed to exetci.-i; the veto power aud there by chock the evils of Special Legislation. 11 .-how?, that t!i vtos rtn'dr hi-- W.minie- 6, i860. tration amounted, on an average, to about one for every day the Legislature was in actual session that this was far more than had been'issued by any of his prcdecesfors and said that the lobor of examining so many questions, and the preparation of so messages, involved an amount of ii l.- .t .t . .3 1 laoor ana time mai uui iew peopic euj'pusTu. i He also remarked that he had been blamed Act," which fixes the amount to be recor- ered from any Railroad company,on account of death occasioned on the road, at $5,000.

He also referred to the act abolishing the Lvcouiine judicial district. In regard to this, it was his opinion at the time that the Legislature had entire control over the mat- ter, and, as there was little or no opposition to the bill, and all the members from that district expressed themselves in its lavor, (except Mr. Beck, who was not there) he I MVe it his approval. The Governor went on to say that the mnet Imnxrtinl involved was the nnn- ciples by which the two parties were govern- I ed. Candidates themselves were of less I 1 importance. Republicans in voting for him vote for their principles. v hat would this country be now if the principles and policy of the Democratic party had prevailed? James Buchanan held that no State could be coerced, and to make such coersion im possible he scattered the army and the navy aud the national arms, uaa mis policy ... - . 11 1 .1 r -IT prevailed we would have been a divided people. It was the principles and policy of the Republican party that inspired hope and saved the Union. The Democratic party wishes us to forget these things. But thoso who have endured the hardships of the war, who have seen their dearest friends fall by their side.shot down by rebel bullets, cannot und will not forget these things. We stand by the principles for which we fought, and intend, by the help of God, to carry out a policy which will preserve the Union which we saved. On this subject the Governor spoke ear nestly and eloquently. But we have not room to give his remarks, neither are we able to Drescnt them in such a manner as will do justice to the speaker. Gov. Geary spoke over two hours, and was listened to with marked and respectful attention. He was repeatedly cheered. It was altogether an able and excellent speech, and raised him higher than ever in the re spect and esteem of all who heard him. When wo remember that Gov. Geary was through the war, in more than sixty battles. including the battles ot lioltvar, t-'edar Mountain, Chancellorville and Gettysburg, and Shcrmau's great march from Atlanta to the sea that he fought the Rebellion in nine States that he was thrice wounded, aud saw his son, Capt. Edward R. Geary, fall dead by his side in the battle ot Wau hatchie we may judge how deoply he must feci on a subject thus engraved upon his memory ; aud how earnest must he be to preserve that Union which he helped to save at so great a sacrifice. Such, indeed, is the record of our candidate. While Packer was entertaining Vallandizham, Geary was fighting the battles of his country. Al the conclusion ol Gov. Geary's speech, A. n. Chase, Esq., of York, Pa., was in traduced to the audience. His remarks had reference almost entirely to the 1 5th Amend mcnt He said its necessity grew out of the rebellion, and its incorporation into the Con stitution of the United States was the only safeguard we had against future rebellion. anarchy, and the repudiation of our nation at obligations. His remarks were well-timed pointed and convincing, and were received with manifest satisfaction by the people l t. j i j whom be addressed. 1 H. B. SWOOPK. Ea.. was loudlv called for at the close of Mr. Chase's remarks. A I he came on the stand he was greeted with I , vi rw i . , I louu cneers. ne saia i ne lateness or tne I hour n re vented him from makinr anvthinir I of a set speech, but as he had been called - 1 speakers of the evening previons. His re marks were brief, full of humor and ' sar- 1 casui, and at times eloquent At the conclusion of Mr. Swoope's re marks, the meeting adjourned with three' hearty cheers for Geary aud Williams, after j which the people retired, well pleased with the entire proceedings. Upon the whole, the meeting on Wednes day evening was the largest, most enthusi astic, and most effective demonstration of the kind ever witnessed in this place. That I it will have a good effect apon the result the coming election there is littla doubt A I few more such meetings will materially add I to the strength of Republicanism in this county. ,. An enthusiastic DemDcrat in Berks coun ty daclares that Asa Packer is a soldier, aud a good one. Being pressed for his reasons for such a singular opinion, he said ho knew it was so. because Packer had Vied the re treat to Europe" during the rebellion. A I TIIORN.M.D., Physician and X.
