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

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.
