Several years ag'j Jacob Rein wooed and
won Lizzie Wirtz, whose parents lived on
the Seventh street ie-ad, about Cve miles
l'roui the city of Louinvillj, and they were
tobema;ried on Sunday. Lizzie's home
is a log lionse with (our or five room?, set
back some four hundred yards from the
pike, and almost obscured by the foliage ot
peach and other fruit trees. "The rooms
were neat and comfortably ftirnibhid Liz
zie was the life and pride of the family.
About two months ago she formed the ac
iu.:iritance of young Yahuline Babbitt.
Her twcel disposition and gentle manners
real.ly won the affections of the stranger,
and ha used every device by which he
inV.'.h: deiaeh her love from Kiio. When
ever opportunity offered ho was with her.
Fivpienily the rivals would meet at the
house, n 1 wuu'-d even visit there iu each
other's company. They sc'iued friends, al
though their dispositions,, their looks, their
ways and maimers were totally different.
The young lady saw the contrast and do
cidr' 1 to continue in the Lve and fiiendship
t Rein, and assured him of her devotion.
The day was fa.-,t approaching when .she

Babbitt knew this but did nr.t ive up the
contest. Oil the contrary it is strongly be
lieveJ lhat hi resolved that she should nev
er marry another. This impression gained
strength by young Rein being shot at, some
time sinte, as he was entering the house of
his betrothed. The ball passed close to him
and was thought to have been Sred by Bab
bitt. Thus matters rcstcl until the day set
for the wedding.
Rein arrived at the house early in the
afternoon and was joyously received. lie

tea pleasant honeymoon. Lizzie readily
conseuted to wait, aud the wedding was
The evening hours sped away, and yet
the two lingered together, strobing about
the yard and talking of the coming years
At 7 o'clock Babbitt joined the party and
all three joined in and continued a merry
conversation. Not a word was spoken, nor
was there a look, which indicated anything
but kind feelings and a generous livalry. A
small four shooter was .sticking in Babbitt's
pistol pocket, and was distinctly seen, but
to this no kind of allusion was made. He
did not take it out, and the little weapon
remained in its hiding place, as if awaiting
a more reasonable time. ; '
At 10 o'clock Rabbitt arose, bowed him
self out of the room and departed. He
went out of the yard by a path which goes
in a northern direction. Fifteen minutes
after Rein went out, taking a westerly
course. Scarcely had he gotten two hun
dred varus, when a pistol shot was heard,
and a silence followed which filled the poor
girl's heart with evil forebodings. She
rushed to the door and looked out into the
darkness. Everything was still, the only
noise being a gentle breeze which crept
slowly through the leaves. In a few mia
utcs, however, some one was heard stag'
gering through the field toward the house.
and then groans as of some one in pain fell
on her ears.
"Oh', father!" she said,." 'tis Jacob, he
is shot. Go, father, to him, and sec what
is the matter."
But the step-father was more bewildered
than the daughter, and said if he went out
there he too mL-ht be killed. She resolved
to go herself, and said :
"If he is deal I wish to die also. I will
go to hita if a hundred guns are pointed at
She then went in the direction of the
tuffjrer. The mother followed her, and
they found Rein about a hundred yards
from the house, lying on the ground and
suffering the agonies of death. They took
him up in their arms and carried him to the
house. A bed was prepared, and jthe girl,
almost a bride, took her stand by the bed
side and watched the life ebbing out of her
lover. The 3-oung man, though suffering
intensely, was perfectly rational and related
the manner in which he had been assassina
ted. He was going aeross the field to his
heme, aud had approached near the pike.
At this moment Yalentine Rabbitt sprang
toward him with a pistol in his hand. Death
to his rival.
"I know you, Valentine," said Rein ;
"you are not going to shoot me, are you?"
Rabbitt made no reply, continued to ad
vance, placed the pistol to his stomach and
fired. The ball passed through the bowels
and lodged in the spine.
Rein sent for a lawyer to make his will,
desiring to make Miss Wirtz his devisee,
but Mr. Willis the County Attorney reach
ed the poor fellow too late. He was still
sensible, able to answer questions, but the
remaining hour of his life was occupied in
taking the testimony of his assasination.
He repeated to Justices Schardine and
Gair that Valentine Rabbitt had shot him.
Constable Walker went to arrest Rabbitt
and found him at work in the harvest field.
It did not seem ihat any trace or remam
branee ot the terrible deed was upon liis
mind. He was taken to Louisville and
confined in jail. He says that he is twenty
three years old, but those who know him
say that he is only seventeen. :

Of the Eepublican State Committee of
-The Republican party, in appealing once
more to the people of this State for their
support, points with just pride to its record,
and it fearlessly claims the renewed confi
dence.of the people because it has been
faithful to its trust, and is committed to the
only line of policy that can secure continued
prosperity to the State and Nation.
The Republicans of this State first carried
both branches of the legislature in 1859, and
first elected a Governor in 1S00. Since then
it has held control of the legislative and ex
ecutive branches of the government until
last winter, when the Democrats obtained
control, temporarily, of the Senate.
In 1SG1, when Gov. Curtin came into of
fice, the State Debt, in round numbers, was
$40,000,000. Shortly afterwards the South
em Robell:onbroke out, and the State was
compelled to borrow $3,500,000, to arm the
troops and protect our borders, thus adding
that much to the State Debt.
Ir the ten years that have since passed
away, this war loan of $3,500,000 has been
paid off ; the State debt has been reduced
from $40,000,000 to a little over $29,000,
000; the three mill tax which was levied for
State purposes on real estate prior to 1801
has been repealed ; the tax on professions
and occupations has been taken off; the an
nual contribution of the State to the I'ublio
Schools has been greatly enlarged ; a system
of schools has been built up tor the cduca
tion and support cf the orphans of soldiers
who died in the war a noble benefaction,
costing over half a million yearly ; and the
affairs of the State, generally, have been so
managed cs to secure prosperity to the
people. ."
The Republicans of the nation elected
their Presidential candidate in 1860, and
succeeded, against many angry threats from
the opposition, in putting him in office in
March, 1CI. Almost immediately after
wards the government was confronted by an
armed rebellion in the South, (openly as
well as secretly encouraged by many Demo
crats in the North, whose sympathies stij
remain with those who then took aims to
overthrow the government,) aud was com
pelled to maintain the honor of the national
flag and the integrity of the country at
whatever cost; and the lour years' war
w hich followed necessarily entailed a heavy
debt and burdensome taxatlou upen the
Siucc the suppression of the rebellion,
the country has not only returned to peace
but to prosperitr. The foars of "-"y chat.
tbe nation would be bankrupted, her indus
try paralyzed, and her people ruined, have
not been realized. No people ever recover
ed so soon, so steadily and so surely, from
the consequences of war, as we have done ;
and for this recovery from the destructive
influences of civil strife wo are mainly in
debted to the fostering hand held out by the
national government to the industries of the
Among the necessities growing out of the
Rebellion the National Government found
itself compelled to submit to the States for
their ratification, three amendments to the
Constitution 6ne (known aa the thirteenth)
abolishing slavery ; another, (the lourteeth)
securing the rights of citizens to the enfran
chised slaves, and prohibiting the repudia
tion of any part of the National debt, or
the payment of any part of the Rebel debt;
and another (the fifteenth) prohibiting the
States from excluding any one from the right
of suffrage on account of race, color, or pre- j
vious condition of servitude.
These three amendment having all been
duly ratified in the method pointed out by
the Constitution, are now a component part
of that instrument. Their adoption stands
as the grandest peaceful achievement of an
cient or modern times. No party ever be
fore undertook so great a task ; and its ac
complishment, in so short a space of time,
is a work of which the Republican party
may well feel proud.
To secure the complete protection of these
emancipated and enfranchised people is now
one of the unquestioned duties of the na
tion ; and no party is so fit to be entrusted
with that duty as the party which has done
the preliminary work. The party which
has hitherto continuously resisted the policy
thus eitablished, is not the one now, to car
ry it out.
During the war tor suppressing the Re
bellion, and in carrj ing out the great meas
ures which have necessarily flowed from it,
the Democratic party has continuously been
in tbe opposition. It opposed the adoption
of stringent measures to put down the Re
bellion ; the levying of troops to suppress it;
the borrowing of money to pay the cost of
the war", the I Emancipation Proclamation of
President Lincoln ; the adoption of all the
amendments to the Constitution ; the re
construction measures by which the revolted
States were brought back into the Union ;
and, generally, every measure necessary to
the successful prosecution of the war, or to
the successful restoration of peace.
At present, too, it is opposed to the means
necessary for raising revenue to pay the
iuterest on the public debt, and secure its
steady reduction ; is in favor of a semi-repudiation
of that debt by paying it in a
depreciated currency, if paid at all ; is watch
ing for an opportunity to annul the new
amendments to the Ctnstitutiou ; and is
generally committed to any line of policy
which will remit the country to its condition
prior to 18G0.
It may be urged, here, that the Demo
cratic party of this State, in the ninth res
olution of the platform adopted by its late
State Convention., has aciuiesced in the
adoption of the amendments of the Con
stitution we have referred to, and cannot be
now charged with hostility to them. We
answer that the acquiescence expressed in
that resolution has not itself, been acquies
ced in by the rank and file of the party.
Over one-third of the Convention voted
strenuously against it, and the action of the
Convention has since been repudiated
by many leading men and journals of the
party. Besides, whatever acquiescence
has been given, sullenly and not heart
ily as a matter of policy, springing
from party necessity, and not from a
conviction of its propriety. Wherever a
voter has been honestly . given, or vo'cs
sincerely raised for this "new departure,"
it may very properly Be regarded as an ex
torted confession that the Republican party
has all along been neht in what the Demo
cratic party has steadily opposed ; and this
confessed, what need is there, or can there
be, for the further existence of the Dem
ocratic party?
When Gen. Grant came into office, in
IS69, he announced his determination to
secure the honest and faithful collection of
the revenue, the steady reduction of the
public debt, and such an abatement in tax
ation as was consistent with this policy. In
the space of little over two years this deter
mination, faithfully adhered to, has resulted
in paying off $230,000,000, of the public
debt, and in the abolition of nearly all the
taxes imposed under previous laws.
In addition to this he has, by his wise
and firm foreign policy, succeeded in set
tling all our outstanding difficulties with
Great Britain, in a raannpr alike honorable
and advantageous to us as a people. The
treaty, lately ratified by both nation?, which
removes all causes of quarrel, and estab
lishes peace and amity between them, has
commanded the. admiration of the civilized
world, and placed the United States in the
foremost rank among the nations of the
earth. This result is one of which every
American may justly feel proud.
To continue the Republican party in pow
er is to continue the policy begun, both in
State and Nation, of maintaining the pub
lic credit, paying off our debt, reducing
taxation, settling international difficulties
without bloodshed, and sustaining the great
principles involved iu the measures necessa
rily growing out of the war.
To restore the Democratic party to power
is to destroy the public credit, pave the way
for repudiation, bring ii the old tide of
corruption, mismanagement and extrava
gance, and open up anew all the questions
involvol in tbo reisonstruction of the south
ern States, now settled upon an honorable
F'or present proof of this we refer to the
consequences flowing from the accidental
majority of the Democrats in the State
Senate last winter. To that fact we owe a
session prolonged to the middle of May, at
an extra cost of $100,000, the re establish
ment of the forsaken policy of employing
extra (and useless) officers in the Legislative
bodies and granting them extra pay ; an
appropriation bill increased beyond all for
mer bounds, to the extent of half a million;
the defeat of all measures for calling a Con
stitutioual Convention at an early day to
put an end to that curse of our State.SPEC- j
ial, Legislation ; aid if determined to
show that this curse should not be re
moved by their aid, the enactment of the
enormous number of 1800 local bills. And
this is but a tithe ot what we should have I
had to endure had they had both Houses
and the Governor on their side. !
A still further proof of the unfitness of
that party to be entrusted with power is to
be found in the melancholy history ot the
late riots in New York. .In that city the
Democrats have undisputed sway, and, thro'
it, in the State. They had the power in
their hands to prevent this riot and blood
shed, but they would not use it cither at the
right time or in the right way. , Why ? Be
cause the party is possessed of no principle
which can lead it to respect the rights of
man, be they civil or religious. Its sole idea
of rights is derived from the maxim that
MIGHT makes EIGHT. This was clearly
evinced in the debate in our State Senate.in
1SG9, on the Fifteenth Amendment, in
which the Democratic leader in the State
scouted the claim that there were any such
things as human rights. The idea, he said,
was a myth and a humbug.
And this sentiment of the Democratic
leader in Pennsylvania has been carried out
to the letter in New York. A few thousand
men, in the exercise of their Constitutional
right to assemble together, inform the au
thorities of their purpose to parade the
streets on a certain day. Another body of men
who always voted the Democratic ticket.and
numbering many more thousands, notify
the authorities that this parade must not be
permitted, and that if it is, they will attack
t and disperse it, no matter at what cost of
life or limb to the party attacked. The
Democratic rulers of New York at once de
cline to defend the few against the many in
the exercise of their Constitutional right ;
deny that there is any such right ; yield to
the defiance of the mob, because it has
might on its side, and, at the demand of
that mob, forbid the peaceable and law
abiding citizens to assemble together, as the
Constitution permits, or to exercise the
rights which the law allows.
It is true that at the last hour, when the
public indignation bad been aroused at this
base abandonment of the civil rights of the
people, the State authorities stepped in and
permitted what the city authorities had
previously forbidden ; but the mob had al
ready triumphed too far to yield peacefully
to this sudden change, and the slaughter
which followed is attributabje solely to the
official cowardice which first yielded to a
mob it was afterwards unable to control.
It is plain, moreover, that the first act, of
prohibiting the parade, was the legitimate
outgrowth of the principle"! controlling the
Democratic party, that men have no inhe
rent rights and that might alone gives
right. It brought into view the ferocious
claws which, though atterwarc's withdrawn,
the furred foot could not wholly conceal. It
was a clear indication of what we may ex
pect throughout the country should the
Democratic party ever return to power.
If our civil and religious rights are to be
preseved in this country against the attacks
of turbulent mobs and the demands of a
wild fanaticism they can be preserved only
by the party based immovably on a deep
regard for Human Rights and Constitution
al guarantees ; and in the light of these
facts we appeal to the people of Pennsylva
nia, to rally to the support of their imper
illed! Constitutional franchises, and by the
defeat of the Democratic party, which has
proven itself alike unwilling and uphold
them, teach it that the people will bear no
yielding to mob violence nor tampering with
their constitutional rights, and will never
permit the surrender of the citadel they
have erected at a bloody cost sacred, now
and forever, to Civil Axr Religious lib
erty. Rcssell Eiirett. Ch'aian.
Uncle Tim's Cat.
In introducing Uncle Tim Smith, allow
me to say that no man in Western Oxford,
Maine, was better known in his day. He
was an honest, poor, hard working man, and
his ouly failing if failing it could be called
was the telling of big stories. I am sure,
however, that in one respect his memory
had become so warped that he religiously
believed his wonderful revelation to be true.
He was the first man to put a spade into
the soil of the first farm I ever owned, and
thereafter he did much work for me.
"Talking about cats," said Unc!e Tim,
"puts me in mind of a cat I once owned.
Let me tell "you about her. She was a
Malteeono I got of Charles Baker and
what that cat didn't know wasn't worth
knowin. Here's one thing she did :
. "In the Spring of '45 I moved into the
little old house down on the Crooked river.
We put our provisions down in 'he cellar,
on the floor. But ;we didn't sleep. No
sooner had it come dark than we heard a
tearin'.anla squeakin' ia the cellar that
was awful. I lit a candle and went down.
Jerusalem! Talk about rats ! I never saw
such a sight in all my born days! Every
inch of the cellar bottom was covered with
'em. Thiy run up onto me, and then run
over me. I jumped back into the room and
called the cat. She jumped down and look
ed. I guess she sot there about ten min
utes, lookiu' at them rats, and I was waitin'
to see what she woald do. By'm by she
shook her head, and turned about and went
np stairs. She didn't care to tackle 'em.
"That night, I tell ye, there wasn't much
sleep. In the mornin' I called for the cat,
and couldn't find her. She'd gone, I guess
the rats had frightened her, and to tell the
plain truth, I didn't much wonder. Night
come again, and the old cat hadn't shown
herself. Says Betsey Ar.n to me says she
'Tim, if that old cat don't come back,
we'll have to leave this place. The rats 'II
eat ns up. Says I: 'Just you let the old
cat be.' I didn't believe she left us for
"Just as Betsey Ann was puttin' the chil
dren to bed, we heard a scratehin' and a
waulin' at the outside door. I went and
opened and there stood our old Mai tee on
the doorstep, and behind her a whole army
of cats, all paraded as regular as ye ever
saw soldiers ! I let our old cat in, and the
others followed her. She went right to the
cellar door and scratched there. I began to
understand. Old Mai tee had been out after
help. I opened the way to the cellar, and
she marched down, and the other cats tramp
ed after her in regular order and as they
went past me me I counted fifty six of 'em.
"Ge-whittaker ! If there wasn't a row
and a rumpus in that 'ere cellar that night
then I'm mistaken ! The next mornin the
old cat catuc up and caught hold of my
trowsers' leg, and pulled me toward the
door. I went down and saw the sight.
Talk about yer Bunker II ill, and yer Boston
Massacres! Mercy! I never saw such a
sight before nor since. Betsey Ann and
me, with my boy Sammy, was all day at hard
work as we could be, clearin' dead rats out
of that 'ere cellar! It's a fact, every word
of it.
