DeiiiocraL-y is heavy at Iieart because it ii expected tliat ilio monthly statement will rhow aiuther linre reduction of the nntional debt, October 1. One half the Democrat!' Congressional candidates in Ohio arc old Know-Nothing. At they want b.rjjoues to be bygone, the )euicraiic papers do not nay much about this state of thiurs. The Democracy cannot shako off Andrew Johnson. He will not leave them. lie asserts that he was always a trrte Democrat. We believe him. It is certain that he was never auy-thiajj but a fnlsc Republican. While the Democratic Convention was in session at Rochester, a practical cxampli Ceatiou of their teachings was afforded by a riotous expedition of roughs to East New York, ncessi- atinj the calling out of the military, after scenes of tha most flagrant outrage and depredation. The Louisville Courier-Journal says that the negro question is not a test of Democ racy, and that the effort to organize a white man's party has failed. We ptiiit this for the edification of our Democratic friends inwiibouts, who are kept in woful ignorance on this subject by their party journals. There was not one Democratic vote cast at the recent election in Peashaiu, Vermont. i nerc were two there last year, but the old man, who wai deaf, dumb, and biiud, has died, and the other ha- deserted his party to accept an office under t liu State govern ment the po ;t of shoe- pegger in the prison. He is a base iii-"ratc. The Pope hoisted the white fla a the Italian troops approached Rome. If the white flag mcaas failure and defeat, and the Pope be the vicegerent oi (lod on earth, we have the curious spectacle of the Italian arms storming the battlements of Deity, and, wonder of won iers ! .snceessful even to the hanin; out of the white Ha?. About this tins j every year the Demo cratic papers usually blossom out with ''straws," accompained -with the sapient observation that these are indicative of the way the wind blows. This fall they have failed to see any favorable omens in the current which set iu some time rgo from Maine, Vermont, Nebraska, and Wyoming. As old irginia drifts toward Democracy, she drifts toward barbarism. A Judtre, ap pointed by the "Conservative" Legislature, has sentenced a negro man, &) years of age, to imprisonment and ten laslus on the bare back, for the larceny (not clearly proved) of a piece of rope worth thirty cents. This took place in Northampton county a few days ago. Notwithstanding the numerous disasters resulting from the careless use of kerosene, it would seem as if housekeepers will never learn from experience;. To attempt to fill a lamp with this dangerous compound, with a lighted wick hel l closj to it, is pretty much the same as holding a cigar in a powder imjrizinc. There is a chance of escaping injury, but an extremely limited one. Some enthusiastic liberals in Germany have projected a new German Confedera tion, with Frankfort as it capital. It is not even so much as anticipated that King William or Rismarek will interpose any obstacles in the way of this pleasing project, and while the anuies are fighting the politicians at home will have formed a new Kovernment. Imagine the surprise of the outwitted Prime Minister! Press Andy Johnson, after having held every office from Alderman of his native village up to President of the United States, has now failed to secure the Presidency, the Governorship, the Senatoi.-hip, and has now just failed a-ain to receive the nomina tion to Congress from his own district. H iving done this much in two years how 1 ng will it take hitn to carry his failures down to where lie started? All of the fall elections held thus far fcavo resu'tfd in Republican ' victories. First came the echoes from the green hills of Vermont of the usual sweeping triumph; then Maine, the "Star of the East," fol lowed with another emphatic majority; then the golden territory of Colorado elected the entire Republican ticket, and lastly Wyoming repudiated her Democratic major ity of last year by casting handsome one for the Republicans. Republicanism Vs. Democracy. ."Look on this picture and on this." Since the Democratic papers will persist in charging the Republican administration of the National Government with extrava gance and insist that there was far more economy and financial success under Demo cratic rule, it becomes our duty from time to time to consider the point and argue the question with them. Jfixtravagance in a Republican government is at any time au offense, if not a crime, and any administra tion guilty of it should It held to a strict account. We hold that, under the circum stances, the Republican administration of General Grant has exhibited a degree of economy not to be found iu any Democratic administration that preceded it. To prove their position the Democratic papers, as the Newark Courier well observes, attempt to institute invidious comparisons between the governmental expenses of the year ending June Z'). 3 870, and the expenses for the year ending at the same date in 1S0O, which was the last year of Democratic rule, whence emanated ail our political woes. The heavy expenditures rendered necessary by the war to put down the Democratic rebellion have been dishonorably charged to the Re publicans, and the excess of expenses over those of the last year of Buchanan's mal administration is set down as the measure of Republican extravagatice instead of as the cost of Democratic treason, as it should be. This i peculiarly the. Democratic style of argu merit. Rut, continues the same journal, a fair comparison shows that under the most dis advantageous circumstauces, we have done a great deal better. While bringing order out of Democratic chaos, and in the face of persistent Democratic efforts to embarass, the Republican administration shows mark ed saving and economy over the Democrat ic administration. Let us look at the Sgurcs. The cost of the last year's administration of the apostate Andrew Johnson, who re turned like the Scriptural sow to his wal lowing in the Democratic mire, was $34$, C5G.245. The cost of the first year of Pres ident Grant's retrenchment and reform was $202,12 J,0o2 a clear gain iu favor of Re publican administration of over $50,500,000 in one year. Add to this the payments on the public debt, and the exhibit is rendered still more favorable to Republican adminis tration as compared with Democratic ad ministration. Take next the administration of the "Old Pub. Func," James Buchan an, the would be "last of the Presidents, iu 1SC0. This is consistently referred to as a model of Democratic virtue and economy, The cost of it to the people, to say nothing of the terrible civil war it entailed, was, as appear by the record of the Treasury De partment, $04,051,733. This was a frac tion over two dollars per head, counting every man, woman and child in the United States. There is no reason for supposing that the cost of governing the country ought to be less per head in 1S70 than 1800. There are many reasons why it should cost more. Our population has been extended over a greater surface, the Indians are mora- tur bulent, and troublesome disorders in the Southern States incident to the Democratic rebellion, continue to annoy us, and in the Democratic party the government in IS70 has had a vicious opposition which the gov ernment of 1 300 uiu uo' encounter. Rut how stands the comparison ? The expenditures for 1 87!) were $292, 124,053. Deduct from this sum the inter est on the war debt and other expenditures properly chargeable to the war, 211,241, 110, and we have the cost of the first year of President Graut"sr.dministration, which is $U,JS2,CJ34 in currency. Reduce this to t'oiJ, ba.'ed on a fair average premium for the year of 2o 2-10 percent., and we find it 05,051,733. This, puting our population at 4;,000,tKX). is a fraction over $1 6 4 psr head, counting every man, woruau and child. Buchanan's administration in 1?00 cost over 2 per head, or 30 cents per head more than President Grant's administra tion of 1870. Thus it will appear thai the latter' s expenses were over one sixth and nearly one-seventh less than the model Democratic administration. It is very proper in this connection to re view briefly the cost of Democratic treason. The expenses incidental to the war were, during the last ytar, $211,241,110. Had there been no lebcllion as there would not have been had it not been for the anarchi cal teachings and treasonable practices of the Democratic leaders this expense would have been entirely avoided. This is the exact cost in 1S70 of the Democratic treason of :800-61. It is about three times as much as the regular cost of the government, and over $5 25 in currency per capital While in '.he year ending June 30, 1870, the people of the United States have paid $211, 241,1 10, or $5 25 psr capita for Pemocratia treason ! Thus stands the record. Figures do not, if Democratic politicians do, lie. When the latter talk about Republican extrava gance and heavy taxes, let thein remember these things ; but as their memories are proverbially poor, perhaps it would be bet ter for Republicans to remember, in order to promptly mid effectually squelch vain and empty boating. Facts are mighty and wul prevail. Repi Bi.iCAxtsM is j hope. Scarcely had Napoleon surrendered at Sedan, and France become a Republic, before Spain responded with expressions of sympathy. Popular demonstrations arose in Italy, and fn-m England came the news of a movement to politically significant that it needs no Daniel to interpret its meaning. It was not merely a warning against Prussia, but an uprising against Constitutional Mon archy. Every American flag carried in that popular demonstration was an appeal for a Republican Government, endorsed as it was by American Republican sentiments. The German nation hat not yet thrown off its dream of 184s, and from South Germany we have news of the restlessness of that people, and their unwillingness to join in any enthusiasm over Germany as a unit under a monarch. The end i not yet, and before this European war has ceased, there will be a positive gain all over Europe in favor of popular government. Hon. John L. Dawson. This well known Democratic politician died at his residence, Frendship Hill, Fayette county, on Sunday evening last, after a brief illness. Mr. Daw son was born ir. Fayette county, and after receiving a liberal education at Washington College, studied law and began the practice of his profession. Entering into politics at an early age, he soon took a leading part on the Democratic side in all current contro versies, and was appointed United States Attorney for the Western District of Penn sylvania in 1845, by President Polk. He was subsequently elected to the Thirty-second and Thirty-third Congresses, and again to the Thirty-eighth, during which he was a member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. "Mr. Dawson was the author of the Homestead bill of 1854, and a delegate to the Democratic National Conventions of 1S44. 1843, 185G and 1800. Gen. Tierce tendered the Govemership of Kansas to Mr. Dawson, who declined the position. In 1804 Mr. Dawson was chosen to the Thirty-ninth Congress, which ended his public career. As a Spexker, Mr. Dawson was pleasing and persuasive, while his nocial qualities were of a character to endear him to a wide circlo of attached fiiends. The deceased was a representative man in Wes tern Pennsylvania, and his death will be generally regretted. A Policy Wanted. Never was a party so divided in sentiment on leading, living issues as is the Democratic party of to-day. In regard to a policy which shall govern the whole, it is literally split into fragments. The Baltimore American says, on this sub ject : The Democratic party appears to be a house divided against itself, and we all know what to expect of such a structure. The New York World, the Louisville Courier-Journal, ud other influential party newspapers want to drop past issues, to recognize the constitutional amendment as binding, and the colored race as legal voters. Mr. Archer, the Democratic candidate iu the Second district, came very nearly up to this standard of action in his speech to the convention which nominated hitn, although at the same time be tokl the colored people that he wanted and would have none of their votes. Rut Mr. Thurman tells the Ohio Democrats that they must refuse to accept as final any of the legislation of the Republican party, that States' Rights must be their distinctive party issue, and that Cons'itutional amendments are not binding. Scuator Thurman is a leading man iu the party, and he lias aspirations for the Presi dential nomination, but his platform seems to be rather different from those of the two c t'uer authorites quoted. Down on the "Dutch." The Chicago Times, the most influential Democratic pa per iu the West, ever since the beginning of the present war, has frequeutly been quoted to show the hostility of that party to every thing that savors of Germany. To show that (he Times has not been misrepresented, it is only necessary to give the following ex tract from a letter written to that paper by a Democrat in approval of its course : "The TinwvM pur-ned the manly course. The Dutch of this country have proven a most stupendous fraud. The records of the War Department at Washington show one continuous line of shelved "Dutch generals" duriug our late row. Chancellorsville was repeated on a smaller scale wherever Dutch battailions were placed in battle array. They vote just as they lought, on .the side otter ing the most lager beer and the most money. It is ucles for the Democracy to pander to the Dutch vote. It is a curse to any party. It will drive away more decent Republicans than it wiil brin;- Ftrength to the suppDrt of the rotten hulk of Radical ism. Then. I say, keep up the tire. Let American Democracy send greeting to Re publican France ; American Radicalism con tinue to sympathize with the forthcoming Dutch empire." . ' Hon. Anuiiew Stewaut. The IWss says : The nomination of Hon. Andrew Stewart by the Republicans of the Twenty first district has kindled an enthusiasm in the western section of our State which marks an era in modern politics. Mr. Stewart is probably the oldest living man who has held a seat iu Congress, and certainly the oldest canditate now before the people. Born in Fayette county in 1792, he was in 1821, after having served three terms in the Legislature and as United States Attorney for Western Pennsylvania under the Administration of President Monroe, elected to Congress, where he occupied a seat for eight terms. One of the. earliest and most earnest advo cates of .protecting to Auicrican industry, Mr. Stewart has always manifested the utmost interest in the manufactures and other industries of Pennsylvania.. Strong and vigorous at the ripe old age of seveuty eight. the nomination of Mr. Stewart at this juncture secures to the Republicans the closest district in the State. Carrying Congress. Li the very ac curate ublo prepared by the Democracy. showing the ease with which they could gain a majority in the next Congress,, they assigned a gain of one for the State of Maine. The election has taken place, and they have not only not gained one, but they have lost everything else on their tickets. Appear ances indicate an equal tabular success for them in all the States; and if they should achieve it, the majority- in the next Con gress will stand exastly as it doe now. Probably, however, as the Southern rebels arc to vote, they will make some small gains. The element Is ihcro to do it, and it is the straight kind. Lowry Again Repi diated. The Demo crats in the Senatorial district of Ctawford and Erie counties have given the parting kick to Morrow B. Lowry, by nominating a straight out candidate for Senator in the person of John Thompson, of liie. The Democrats have now full tickets in the Geld in both counties. This, of course, repu diates Lowry in toto. Poor Lowry! despised by the Republicans whom be betrayed; coquetted with by th-3 Democrats while in the Senate; and now, when they might have given him at least a chance for re election, they kick him entirely out of the party. A proper reward for all traitors. Halifax, Mass., seems to be a thriving place. It is eighteen years sinco the last new house was built.
