There is a terrible strife among the Democ
racv in Iowa. At the recent State Conven
tion a new set appeared, dismissed all the
old lenders and placed unon the ticket, and
on the State Committee, the names of per
sons who, to use the emphatic words of one
of their orators, "were born since the cruci
fixion of Christ." The old fellows whose
births preceded that day. and who have
ruled the party so long, take the matter

The best election canvassers that Gcneial
Grant can have are the statisticians of the
Treasury Department. They are the most
efective and oavincinj of stump speakers.
Every now an 1 then they utter sentiments
iu advocacy of his re election that burn like
words of firo. Tha very latest reads some
what in this way : "Receipts for revenue
from all sources from September 1. 1867, to
March 1, 1SC9 under Johnson $5.16,3 15,
2j3 ; receipts of revenue from all source
from March 1, 1S69 to September 1, 1870
under Grant $543.72$, 963 ; strength of
argument in favor of Grant, S7,413,765."
The Democracy are disguested with the
Republican party for resurrecting tho dead

Frotecttox What is it? Working
men should consider that the very root idea
of the protective system is to foster and de
fend hibor. It permits and sufferi the in
gress or importation of all raw materials and
products that do not conflict with domestic
industry. It excludes and drives off foreign
labor. Protection is not taxation. The
tax Is only an incident only- the means
used to guard against a suicidal competi
tion with the under fed, under-paid, un
der paid serfs of other countries. In fact,
when this system has unimpeded play, pro
tection works a2aint and does away with
taxes. It tends to relieve from taxation
everything which we must import, and to
add to the cost only of those articles which,
having or making ourselves, we should not
import. For instance, under a pure system
of protection there will be no taxes on tea.
coffee, indigo, or foreign drugs, or raw ma
terials which we cannot produce. AU th'-sc
things are let in free. Duties are laid only
on the results of labor, because that labor
can be applied to the new product by our
own laborers with more profit to themselves
and to the country. Protection is merely a
breastwork for the American workman
against his foreign enemies. The whole
system reduces itself to that one idea, and
it is an idea tiiat the voting laborers of this
our land cannot revolve in their minds too
earnestly or too often remembering, at the
same time, that the Republican party is the
true fiiend of this protective system, pnd
hence the only friend of the laboring classes.
The DcTr op the Hocr. Ten years
ago says tho Somerset Herald the Dem
ocratic party was in power and to all human
appearances impregnable. The Executive,
Judicial and Legislative departments of the
government were all Democratic. But am
bition, and slavery and treason cohabited
together in its ranks and bred discord, and
it was discord and not the fell spirits that
rioted in its bosom that caused its over
throw. It did not fall asunder because of
its hell-begotten bins of slavery and rebel
lion, for its masses had been so taught and
their better sentiments so blunted that they
bugged those delu-iuus of the devil to their
bosoms, but because schisms in its rauks
w.re fostered by the peisonul ambition of
its leaders it s lit assund:r, and became an
easy prey to the young and comparatively
weak Republican purty. Theirs has been a
severe les-on. Let us profit by it and "lay
its instructions to heart. Let Republicans
discard all strife about men and following
only iu the load of principles unite all their
energies, and thus continue their ascendan
cy and their control of public affairs. Dem
ocrats are to day counting upon regaining
the power they have lost, not by force of
'heir own numbers, but through divisions
and supiner.ess in our racks. Close up the
ranks, KepuMicans ! in unity there is power
and assured success, in discord defeat and
political death.
Drowm.no Mkn Catch at Straw.
We see, the DelleTonie Ytntclnnan and AI
toona Sun take special pains to misconstrue
an item which appeared in the Journal of
the 7th. That the De.nocratio organs are
appealingto tl e "prejudices' of the thieves,
burglars, shoulder bitters, repeaters, etc.,
(the lowest stratum of our population), es
pecially in the larger cities, to save their
sinkti g party fioui utter annihilation, no
intelligent reader will deny the attempt of
the Watchman and Sun to pervert our lan
guage to the contrary notwithstanding.
But again ; this attempt, of the Democratic
organs, to misconstrue our language, plain
ly indicates a want of arguments, on their
part, to bolster up the waning fortunes of
their fast sinking party, and hence, like
drowning men, they "catch at straws," le
eause there is nothing more firm within
their reach to cling to. So, "blow on ye
winds," your blast can do us no harm.
Redictio.-v of Tiir Debt. During the
month of August the national debt has been
reduced over $13,000,000, and the proba
bilities are that the present month will show
another reduction about equally great. It
is stated in a Washington dispatch that the
receipts from internal revenue and customs
during the month have been so heay as to
warrant the belief that the reduction of the
debt wiil be such as to bo gratifying to all
classes of the people of the United States
but the radical Democracy, and nothing
wiil satisfy them but political ascendancy
and consequent ruin of the country. The
receipts from internal revenue, it is stated,
will be over fifteen millions, while those
fioui customs are estimated at eighteen mil
lions. It is such argunientsasthc.se prac
t'cal and telling upon which tho Adminis
trntion relies to deserve and to retain the
continued confidence and support of the
people. They are irresistible.
JfST So ! Some scribbler in the Repub
lican says our statement of the relative ex
penses between Grant's and Buchanan's
administrations U incorrect We again
assert that the ordinary expenses under
Grant's administration are but $1.64 per
capita, while under Buchanan's they were
$2.00. The difference between $1.64, the
true amount, and $4.76 thealledged amount
of the scribbler in the Republican, is the
legacy bequeathed the people by the late
Democratic Southern Rebellion, and cannot
be truthfully charged to the ordinary expen
ses of Grant's administration. But "drown
ing men will catch at straws,"
During the month of August there were
received at thePostoffice Department 312,
071 dead letters. Of this number 4,5S0

ing money in them amounting to 7,170 16,
were returned to the writers, the whole

The Prussians are reported to be some
what embaiTassed in the operations around
Paris by (be rumored escape of a portion of
Bazaine'sarmy from Metz. The number
escaped is reported at six thousand, which
must be an error, as such a number of men
could do little injury. It was probably sixty
thousand men that escaped.
Paris has been declared in a state of siege:;
Noncoiubattants are to be expelled. The
Prussians were in sight of the city-on
Thursday. There have been do -railroad
trains beyond Pontoise since Wednesday
last The forests around the city are now
entirely consumed.
Thursday morning a corps of the army of
occupation left Paris for the purpose of at
tacking the advance guard of the Prussian
army, who are known to be in the immedi
ate suburbs of the city.
The Prussians are closing io on the capi
tal in a way that indicates an attack on 'the
southern and south-eastern side, and in that
direction, so as to receive their support,
and at the same time to prevent reinforce
ments from the south and west to the be
seiged. '
The workmen of the city form sixty-six
battallions, comprising eighty thousand
men. They are among the most determin
ed defenders of the city, and are resolved on
a war of extermination. Military men of
experience say that the power of the city to
resist is limited only by the supply of food.
It is claimed that General Trochu has
410,000 men under arms, who will become
good soldiers behind the ramparts. The
citizeus are determined to emulate Stras
burg. If the city holds out three months
they claim that the Prussians will be driven
back to the Rhine. They will make their
way over barricades if they succeed in bat
tering down the walls or get in by surprise.
The bombardment of Strasburg contin
ues. In his last dispatches General Ulrich,
commandant, admits that the situation is
desperate. General Von Werther, the
Prussian commander, defers the general as
sault on the city in order that the garrison
may not be uselessly butchered. The suf
ferings of the people and garrison are ter
rible. The blockade of the Baltic and North Sea
porta has bcn officially raised.
It is reported in London that the Foreign
OSiee has M. Bismark's reply to the de
mand of Jules Favre for an armistice. Bis
mark says there are questions yet to be set
tled with France before a suspeusion of hos
tilities is possible.
Things to Be Semembered.
As the election approaches, says the
Telegraph, the public mind should awaken
to the actual condition of things, take in
the whole truth, and prepare to decide the
issue upon the facts. In order to do this
there are many things to be brought to the
recollection. Among others.
It should be rememberel that the late
rebellion, which was the immediate cause
of the national dsbt and the taxes which n on
bear heavily upon the people, was inaugura
ted under and by a Democratic administra
tion, and carried on by the Democratic party
under Democratic leaders.
It should bo remembered that the Demo
cratic leaders and their rebel allies (for there
ars rebels still) are influenced by the same
relentless hostility to the principles of
Republican liberty now as d iriiig the rebel
lion, and are actios in conceit, through the
same frcaso nable agencies, to regaiu control
of the Government.
It uhottlJ be rem?mbcrd that the settled
policy of the Democraiio party is to ret u
diateand annual all tha constitutional amend
ments and lawsof Congress conferring equal
rights upon all classes of citizens, and all
the acts of Congress reconstructing the
Southern States, so that, finally, slavery
may be restored.
It should be remembered that, thould
they attain power, they have in many por
tions of the Union expressed a detei ruina
tion to repudiate the national debt, thereby
degrading the nutional honor, and making
us the scorn of the civilized world. '
And it should be particularly and especial
ly borne in mind that the Democratic party
is the openly avowed friend of free trade. and
consequently he enemy of American indus
try. . .
These, and many more things of the same
character, should be remembered by the
people of Pennsylvania during the present
campaign, and especially should they be
kept clearly in view at the ballot box the
arbiter of popular will.
The Late Elections. Some of the
small-fry Democratic organs, evidently
presuming much upon the ignorance of their
readers by withholding the facta, have been
making a great ado about the result of (he
recent elections. For the information of
all, we will briefly restate the result, and if
our Democratic friends can draw any con
solation therefrom, they are welcome to
their enjoyment
Last year the Republican majority in
Vermont was 20,369; this year it is 22,000
the Republicans having elected their en
tire State and Congressional tickets.
In Maine, the Republican majority last
year was 6,363 ; this year about 7,500, in an

Congress by a majority of about 200 being
a Republican gain of over 1,600.

plains, and extending to the head -of the

Territory. This canal, it is said, will irri
gate no less than three million acres of land,
now useless except for stock purposes, and
will be, if constructed, the means of making
a place where a million of people may find
homes. It is claimed that means sufficient
to pay for the survey arc raised and the
