The New Orleans Deutchcr Zeitung, a Democratic paper, has come out in support of the Republican party. Another evidence of the fact that Germans everywhere are severing their connection with the Democ racy. When Gen. Grant became "President, the greenback dollar was worth Rerenty-five cents, but it is now worth eighty-tight and a half cents, mating the -entire volume of our currency worth nearly $100,000,000 more in the pockets o? the people. It is a fact worthy of note, that all the fall elections held thus far have resulted in largely increased Republican victories. For "a used up institution," the Republicans seem to get on quite comfortably yet somehow having considerable life in its old frame, . Democracy in Maryland is becoming ap prehensive of defeat, and admits that suc cess in some of the Congressional districts is only to be had by energetic work. After this citadel of the Nasbyites succumb to the newly-enfranchised citizens, Kentucky will also fall. 'L. Iciiiuci at a co- rri war a""Hins are dead issues. : What do the soldiers think ? Un til the Democratic party can change timber legs to limbs of flesh and blood, fill .vacant chairs in thousands of. homes, and obliter ate gravestones from a thousand cemeteries, it will continue to be judged bf the past as well as the present. The spirit of economy inculcated by Con gress at its last session has had some influ ence in the Congressional Printer. A series of maps published from the Government Printing office for the use of members of Congress, by contrart made with the Con gressional Printer during Andy Johnson's administration, cost the government $13, OtH. The same work has just been comple ted, under a contract made with Colonel Clapp, for the sum of $3,000. Little Delaware is invited by her rebel Democratic leaders to engage in a rebellion. In their addresses, these gentlemen ask the people of that State to rally and crush out the political equality of the negro. The one hundred and seventy-five thousand new voters under the fifteenth amendment are to be crushed und'ir the weight of the ten thousand ballots of Delaware. The retrac tive Bourbons of Delaware are becoming farcical iu tholr devotion to the white mau's party. The Hon. John D. Stiles, Democratic member of Congress from the Allentown District of Pennsylvania, passes his vaca tion either in doing good turns for his neigh bors or transacting a little business of his own account ; we can't tell which. He makes use of the franking privilege to in struct mankind in the merits of a new pat ent stove grate, warranted to last twice as long as any other.Jand not to get clogged. Mr. Stiles is probably opposed, on grounds of public policy, to a repeal of the franking privilege. Democratic fitness for managing the fi nances of the country is well exemplified in New York city. There, from a population of 800,000, they collect a tax of $23,000, 000, about $25 a piece for every man, wo man and child. There arc in this country 40,000,000 people, and at $25 a head, we would have the nice little sum of $1,000, OOO.OiX) annually of taxes. What assurance, pray, have we, that Democrats would be more economical with the United States Government than with Ntw York city. Give them an equally safe hold upon each, and they will treat both alike. Or are Dem ocrats in New York ef the Hoffman, Cox, Brooks, Hall, Sweeney kind, worse than all Others? The Cincinnati Enquirer is very high Democratic authority, and it declares that if the party gets into power it will carry out these things: Refuse to pay the Govern ment debt in gold ; tax the securities the Government has given for the money it owes the people ; repeal a part of the re construction acts ; restore every rebel and traitor to citizenship, without qualification or conditions ; forbid Chinese to emigrate here ; and do a great many other things of the same kind. It docs not actually say that the party will restore slavery, or reduce colored men again into bondage, but leaves that to bo inferred. The people, however, will take good care not to place them in power, and tbfts thwart their nefarious bchcuios. Bepnblican Meeting. Pursuant to the call of the County Com mittee, a large number of Republicans from all parts of the county, met in the Court House on Wednesday evening, September 28th, 1870. The meeting was called to or der by T. II. Murray, Esq., the chairman of the committee, who announced the fol lowing persona as officers : President, Jonatnan Boynton, Esq. Vice Presidents, Arthur Bell, Samuel Hegarty, Andrew Pentz. Sr., II. W. Brown, E. W. MtGarvey, Thos. W. Moore, Wm. Albert, Capt. D. F. Copelin, David Cathcart, John Welch, Claudius Girard, John A. Beyers, John Thomson, John Blair, David Dressier, A. L. Hoover, Geo. B. Smith, Ellis Irwin, John .W. Wright, John S. Iladebach. Secretaries, John M, Adams, Ed. Liv ingston, S. J. How. Mr. Murray then stated the object of the meeting, after which he introduced the Hon. Samuel Linn, of Williamsport, who was received with great applause. Judge Linn, attef' referring in complimentary terms to the pleasure it afforded him to again meet and address the people of Clearfield county, proceeded to argue at length the impor tance of active and earnest work in the Re publican ranks that the spirit of rebellion in the South, which prodnced the rebellion, is not yet dead, and that the success of our opponents would vitalize the subdued ener gies of the confederacy and aeain endanger all the peace and prosperity of our country. He urged the election of Hon. G. W. Sco GelJ, the tried and true friend of the peo ple, as an important duty. After Mr. Linn closed H. B. Swoope, Esq., was loudly called for, and addressed his fellow citizens in his usual happy and impressive manner. He thought the National debt small as compa red with the resources of our country, and that under the financial system of the Re publican party it would fairly and honestly be paid without distressing the people, ne eloquently defended the system of a Protec tive Tariff as against the Free Trade doc trines of the Democratic party. The one was designed to encourage and protect the labor of our own country the other would discourage and break down our inanuf aq tures by exposing their trades to the com Ietition of the proper wages of every other nation. Hon. J. B. McEnally was next called, but not being present T. II. Murray, Esq., being called upon, then addressed the meetiug, by briefly re-' viewing the record of the two parties since 1S00. He argued that the present peaceful and prosperous condition of our country it owing to the suecesa of the principles of the Republican party. This claim we pre sent in this campaign against the claims of a party with nothing in its late history to entit'c it to confidence, and against the charges of a party which are proven to be false by its own record. The meeting now adjourned (2?. "Tmt Philosopher." A blf crasv fallow cam ed ''old Dr. Chase," has announced himself as a rolunteer candidate for Sheriff. He is no doubt, in great measure, the instrument of some of the old Kuow-Nothing hirs who are too cowardly, or politic to buldlj itow their old heresy about American? and Foreigners, hence he is set in the foreground to resurrect the native and "alien" el ement. His votes will be about equal to his sense on election day. Kepitbltran, Sept. 28th. The above paragraph, save that Mr. C. pretends to be a "candidate for Sheriff, is untrue in every rerpect. Democrats only have urged him to come out, a Democrat wrote his advertisement, and his hand bills were printed in the Republican office. "Know-Nothing hags," Eh ? Besides : If the individual referred to is "half crazy," the Democrats who urged him to announce himself as a candidate for Sheriff, have, in our opinion, shown themselves to be pos sessed of but little, if any, better common sense than is attributed to him, for no hon orable, high minded man v. !!1 deal frivol ously with the misforturusof a fellow being. Biris ok a Feather. The Democracy of this county, it seems, are "loil" to their instincts. We are told, that Mr. George Brisbin, the President of thoir meeting on Tuesday evening of Court week, was a sol dier in the rebel army, during our late "un pleasantness." Well, the Republican par ty having a host of soldier friends in their ranks, why should not the Democracy have at least one in their ranks? A Republican may well be proud of his party, when he contemplates the present condition of his country, and the wonderful results which have sprang out ot the wis dom, tact, economy and energy of President Grant's administration. The national credit stands higher to day, notwithstanding the large national dt-bt brought on by a wicked and exhausting war. than it has at any for mer period within the ten years last passed. The Democrats in the last Congress, by a strict party vote, voted against the reduc tion of the tariff on tea, coffee, sugar, mo lasses, spices and medicines. Yet they have the audacity to complain to the people that the necessaries of life are taxed. They voted against keeping the present tax on whisky. Question in Democratic estima tion, is whisky a necessity, and are tea, cof fee and sugar, luxuries ? Rally ! Freemen, Rally to the polls ! The best interests of the country demand this at your hands. Although the rebellion has been crushed, yet the spirit that actuated it is still alive and ready to burst forth again should opportunity offer. The only safety is in continuing the Republican party in power. A failure to cast a full Republican vote iu this county, will be misinterpreted as a want of confidence in the present national administration. Then, go to the polls on Tuesday next and deposit your ballot for the whole ticket. They are all good and true men ! Remember! next Tuesday is the election Go to the polls and cast your ballot for Hon: Glenni W. Scofield, the people's candidate for Congress, and for the whole Republican ticket s Montgomery county. Mo., has only one colored Democratic voter, and he is a can didate for Representative, THE FBEHCH-PBUSSLOWAE. What is Doing. Joust Avx Actbes, Near Mrrz, if Camp, September 24. Since the fearful battle of the 18th of August the Prussian army has been hard at work. The activity and determined bravery of the French soldiers has kept the besieging forces con stantly employed. Vigilence is proved to be necessary. Repeated sorties and resolute attempts have been made by Bazaine to break the bonds in which he is held. Not withstanding the attempts to treat for capi tulation, there has never been a moment when the beleaguered General was not pre pared to avail himself of any symptom of neglect or weakness on the part of the eueroy. At noon on the 23d, under cover of the guns of the fort, the French sailed forth in con siderable strength against the Prussian right. A vigorous attack and defense were made, the Prussians taking advantage of the woods. The battle raged from midday until seven o'clock, when the Germans meeting support, assumed the offensive and drove the enemy within their lines. .: ' On the 24:h a still more desperate attack was attempted. The French advanced large bodies of infantry, supported by artil lery and cavalry, and covered by the cannon of the fort, -which opened the fire. The French attacked vigorously the left of the Prussian line, a little 'to' the east of the Thionvillc road. Regiment after regiment fell in a solid line on the defenses of the Prussians, who stood like iron. Once the French gained a temporary advantage, carry ing an out work of the Prussian lines, and turning the flank of another position, but were shortly driven back, gallantly contes ting every foot of ground. At length they were again forced to retire under the forts. The thrilling display of stubborn determina tion on both sides was never excelled. Details of the result are yet unknown. The Times has the following special : On Tuesday last, the 27th. the French made an other sortie from Metx. The forces consis ted of cavalry and artillery, and were pro tected by the guns of Forts Quentin and Botter. ' The French advanced to Aisle Queux, where the Prussians were encamped; Another severe encounter ensued, which resulted in the defe at of the French, though they carried off their wounded, dead, and all the Prussian prisoners captured. The village was burned by shells. The affair of Le Bourges was very serious and dramatic. Sheltered behiud a house, the Prussians had run up a redoubt of bricks. A nights attack took place at this point, and the electric light apparatus, Marshal Bazaine's system, did capital service.- A battalion of Breton Mobiles and National Guard advanced upon the enemy, whose eyes were dazzled by the light, while the French forces were in the shade. The can non from tho fort fired upon the house which protected tie redoubt, and the Prus sians, surprised and thrown into confusion by the unexpected manccrer, were routed, and left five hundred prisoners iu the hands of the Mobiles. The Tribune special at Carlsruhe tele graphs on the 28th : At eight this morning the gates of Strasburg were occupied by the German troops. It was reported that the inhabitants, driven to desperation, succeed ed yesrday evening in hoisting the white flag on the Cathedral, but Ulrich ordered it removed. The surrender was afterwards compelled by the presence of the citizens iu the garrison. There is great rejoicing here over the victory; salutes are firing and bells ringing. The French garrison have been removed to Rastadt in Berlin as priso ners of war. The Prussians have al ready occupied the town. The citadel and bridge to Kehl have been restored. At nine o'clock the Mayor and municipal authorities proceeded to Mundelsheim. Clermont has been captured by the Ger man forces. Three hundred Mobiles, assis ted by the citizens, successfully resisted the first attack ot the enemy. After their re pulse, the Prussians, having received rein forcements and artillery, returned to the attack and captured the place. The Prussians have surrounded Soissons. Shot and shell have been ' exchanged since Saturday. Tho suburbs have been destroy ed by artillery fire. Reitblican Economy. A littl circum stance shows conclusively that far greater economy is practiced by officials at Wash ingUm under. the administration of President Grant, in small things as well as great, than was the case under Johnson's adminis tration. A series of maps published, from the Government Printing Office for the use of members ot Congress, by contract made with the Congressional Printer during the Johnson administration, cost the govern ment $13,000. The same work has just been completed, under a contract made with Colonel Clapp, for the sum of $3,000. Here are $10,000 saved on one small con tract. Death of William F. Packer, Ex -Governor Packer died on Wednesday at his residence, at Williamsport, aged sixty-tour years. Hon. William F. Packer was chosen Governor of Pennsylvania at the October election in 1857, over David Wilniot, Repub lican, and Isaac Ilazelhurst, American. He served as Governor from January,1861, when he was succeeded by Governor L'urtin. Trior to his election as Governor, he had been State Senator from the Lycoming District, and had been a printer and editor. He was a gentleman ot pleasing address and manners, and a fine specimen of the vigor ous manhood of the interior of Pennsylvania. A great many journals continue to quote the supposed declaration of King Willam that he made war upon Napoleon and not upon the French people, and to ask why, having captured the Emperor, he does not therefore stop the fighting and go home. The Tribune has already mentioned that the King never made the remark attributed to him. It was an error of the Cable, by which we ourselves, in common with other papers, were at first deceived. Mail advices showed that what his Majesty really said was that Prussia made war upon the French armies, and not upon, peaceable citizens and peasantry. A Little bf Everything.

No man eaa ever borrow himself out of debt. If you wish for relief you must work for it. Ton must make more and spend less than you did while you were running in debt. It ts a curious circumstance that the French Gen eral Ulrich, the heroic defender ef Strasbnrg. is of German descent, and the besieging Prussian General, Berger, is ef French descent.

A Wild Cat Takes a Child out of its Cradle. On Thursday, Sept. 22d, says the Clarion Democrat, a wild eat entered the house of Mr. Elliot Walters, who re sides at Wilson's Mill, on Toby Creek, in Knox township, about seven miles north of Clarion, and took a young child from the cradle, and was about to commence devour ing it, when it was f righteued away. The parents had gone out to gather in potatoes from a lot and left tho babe wrapped up, rleeping in its cradle. 'A little girl was sent in after they had been absent a short time, to see about the child, and when she opened the door was horrified to see a large wild cat, with the infant, behind the stove. The little babe was crying piteously, and in a short time would doubtless have been killed and devoured by tbe savage beast. On the alarm being given, the wild cat escaped thro' the window, and has since been seen iu that neighborhood. The National debt was reduced $9,007,408 during Sept Total reduction since March 1st, $70,914,138. This is an irresistable ar gument for a continuance of the Republican party in power. Go to the polls on Tues day next and cast your ballots for the Re publican candidates, and the reduction of the debt is secured beyond doubt. Death or Jcpo Gbier. Hon. Robert Cooper Gricr, late Associate Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court, died at his residence in Philadelphia, on Monday last, aged 76 years. He had, for several years, suffered from paralysis, and another attack only a few days since, closed his earthly career. The Democratic "stop-thief cry of "Taxes," "Taxes," will avail them nothing. The people have repeatedly and effectually rebuked them, and will do it again by giv ing Hon. G. W. Scofield an increased ma jority on Tuesday next Let every Repub lican go to the polls and vote'. . A Costly Law-Suit. Two brothers of Ripley county, Indiana, have just concluded a law suit arising out of a joint claim for a barrel of salt The court expenses of the defeated one amounted to $357257, and the lawyer's fees to almost twice as much. So says a Western paper. If qualifications and fitness are considera tions to control results, then our county ticket should be elected. Every man on it is unexceptionable. We seldom .experien ced a more sincere satisfaction in support ing a ticket than we do this fall. 00UBT PE0CEEDINGS. OYER - TEKM1NER. ! Com. vs. Martin Harder and Norman L. Robins. Murder. Upon motion of coun sel the trial of Harder was continued to January term, 1871. Norman L. Robins having been awarded a separate trial, a jury was called, and, upon being arraigned, the prisoner plead "not guilty" on the indictment of "felonious homocide." This trial occupied the atten tion of the Court from Tuesday morning to Wednesday evening, when the case was submitted to the jury. After an absence of about three hours the Court being in ses sion the jury returned to the Court room and rendered a verdict of'guilty of murder in the second degree." On Friday after noon the prisoner was brought into Court, and the following sentence passed upon him : "That you, Norman L.
