S. J. KOT, EDITOR A3D PROPRIETOR. CLEARFIELD, PA., AUGUST 2, 1S7I. REPUBLICAN STATE TICKET, rn AiDiroa general: Col. DAYID STANTON, of .BeaYer. Eon gcnreron general: Col. EOBEST B. BEATII, of Srfroylkill. A bad Democratic "ring" tlie"new den.irturc riii-." It tolls the death of the party. Lost the ""White Man's" party. The fimler will be liberally rewarded upon returning the snmc to the Chair man of the Democratic State Central Commiitc. 'The Philadelphia Press say?, it is certain that the Democratic ticket can not be elected in that city. This fact alone insurer the success of the Repub lican State ticket, if our friends will but do their whole duty. The Democracy knowing that they are responsible for the late massacre in New York city, are more despondent than ever of success at the coming elections. In fact, they feel that de feat is their certain doom, if the Re publicans will stand by their principles, and poll a full vote. Let our friends remember this. The Chairman of the Republican State Central Committee, in the ad dress which we print on the outride of to-day's paper, tersely and truly sets forth the record of the great party of progres.;. It is a e.ipitr.! summary of migniSccnt reforms ccnsr.niated and eternal principles vindicated. The po litical history of the Republican party fills many volumes, but no part of it is so brilliant as the work it has done for Humanity. Certain journals arc making them selves exceedingly unhappy over the reported payment by private parties of the amount agreed upon for a year's lease of Samana Ray. They say it is a conspiracy to reagitatc the San Do mingo question. This docs not follow. There is not a particle of evidence that the President has any such purpose and if he had, the whole afTair must come fully out. Xo one pretends that the (jjveruinent is bound by the action of private parties. The X. Y. Times appears to hold the whip-h:!!i Ho in dealing with the Democratic Mayor and Controller of that city, as will be seen by an article in another column. It presents an as tounding array ot figures which bear indisputable evidence of fraud, in the distribution of the public moneys. Af ter sueh a startling expose, let no one (iiestion under which rule their inter ests are best guarded, and forever let Democratic journals hold their tongues about Republican corruption. The fight among the Democratic leaders on account of the New York riot, is represented as being exceeding ly bitter. Hoffman is denounced by II .ill and others, r.nd it will depend ve.-y greatly whether Tammany gets cosily out of its present diLinma wheth er it gives Hoffman its support for the Presidency. Hall and the local lead ers of Tammany are exceedingly sore th-.it their little gp.me should have been spoiled, and resent the interference of the Governor so far as thev dare. General Hancock has been nomi nated for the Presidency by a party of gentlemen at Alum Springs, Yirginia. The Lynchburg Virginian says this reminds it of the meeting of the tail ors of Tooley street, London, who re solved that "We the people of En gland," ie. Not exactly. "Tall trees," you know, "from little acorns grow" if not stunted in their growth. And has not Yirginia long borne the reputa tion of being the mother of States a3 Wxdl as Statesmen and Presidents? At no period of th" n.Iuiini-t:-;;:ion of President Grant ms Mr. Routwcll more fully shared the confidence of the people than at the present writing. It piay be said, without disrespect to his predecfvsorSjthat no former Secretary of the Treasury has so thoroughly entitled himself to t?u: cw&Vflce of our people by perfect integrity in dus discharge of his official duties, by quiet a4 unas suming deportment, a)j$ by sin ini)e;i blu adherence to tLa iiraiginforward business rules wLkli Li laid down for himself whi'ti , .ncceptc th?-? Import ant j-v-ition. Democratic Economy. 1 There is a very sublimity of audaci ty in the way the Democratic ring which misgoverns New York defrauds the tax-payers of that city. Its trans actions evince not only an utter disre gard of that homely, old-fashioned vir tue known as honesty, but a total recklessness of consequences and of an outraged public sentiment. Long im munity from punishment, clue to the numercial strength and corrupt condi tion of the party which maintains them in power, has emboldened and harden ed a set of officials never conspicuous for integrity, and with hands thrust deep into the public treasury they now fearlessly pluck out millions when once they were content with thousands or hundreds. This w holesale robbery practiced by the Democratic government of New York city, is being clearly shown up by the N. Y. Times, which is pushing the work of exposure with commenda ble zeal. Though Controller Connolly has refused compliance with the law requiring reports to be made at stated times of the city's finances, the Times has managed to obtain transcripts from the records, and is giving publicity to swindles and downright thefts of the most outragous character, in which not only tne Controller himself and Mayor Hall, but other members of the noto rious Tammany Ring are charged with participation. Among the items of plunder mentioned in a recent article is $So,090 charged to the city for the rent of ten lofts ostensibly occupied for armory purposes, but actually not used at all ; $190,000 a year addition al being charged for the rent of the armories really occupied. For keeping ten armories in repair nine months the following preposterous sums are charg ed : A. J. Garvey. for plastering, $197,330 24 J. II. keyset", for plumbing, 142,3-!S 71 J. 11. Imrersoll, for chairs! 170.72'J CO G. S. Miller, for carpenter wurk, 534,004 31 Amounting to $941,453 SO A. J. Garvey, for plastering and other repairs to Court IJou-es. in 19 days in Decem ber, IS&J: 269,027 97 Total, $1,214,031 83 It is not necessary to extend the list. These charges are no higher than an average of the whole, and together comprise less than one-fourth of those made for work performed in the , single month of December, 1SC9. De cember must hereafter be set down as a remarkably good month for plaster ing, even in the cold climate of New York, no matter what the previous opinions of housebuilders may have been; and Andrew J. Garvey is cer tainly one of the luckiest of plasterers if he really retained all the earnings accredited to him for those thirty-one days. x Is any Democrat sufficiently idiotic to believe that the one-hundredth part of these sums were actually paid to the parties named, and that the work actually done and articles furnished were really worth even one-half that small fraction ? Of course not. The other ninety-nine hundredths represent the profits, or rather the stealings of the ring. And yet these are only some of the crumbs. The whole loaves and fishes devour ed by these cormorants at the expense of the tax-payers amount, in many ca ses, according to the Times, to millions upon millions of dollars. But why waste words in further illustrating the preposterous nature of the robberies perpetrated upon the people of New York city by the Democracy who gov ern it ? Is it worth while to make an appli cation of such a nianifiest lesson ? We think not ; yet, we presume there are thousands of voters throughout the country who are so gullible as to be lieve that the Democratic party, no matter how damaging its record, is somehow noted for purity and economy. Let such be undeceived. The pecula tions in New York city are but a sam ple of the rascality of the Democratic leaders; and should those leaders ever get a hold on the national government their plunderings would have no end. Then, the only safety for the people from the ravages of the Democratic cormorants lies in the success of the Republican party, whose economical administration of our National and State affairs, as well as municipal, where in power, is beyond cavil or dis pute. The gratifying announcement is made by the Lincoln Monument As sociation that it has been able to pay for all the work thus far completed, and that only four groups of statuary arc reeded to complete the monument in accordance with the original design. This amount will doubtless be raised, and the monument finished. This will be creditable to the Association, and indjeatf-s that even in this country a telle enterprise can be properly con sumated. Have we a Washington Mon ument Association ? A Little of EYerything. Shoitening the days. Flour from new wheat lias appeared. Fortune has no power over descrtiou.

Canada is the fourth maritime power in the world. Raleigh vouches for a pea-pod two feet two inches long. Stunning the ring of some of our church going "belles."

Because young men are so apt to follow them. The Republican Slate Committee have their committee rooms at the Lapierrc House oa Broad street. A "moustache brigade" has been organ ized in Clearfield. Raw recruits are con stantly coming in. While a Cincinnati family were at the theatre their servant girl stole two wagon loads of furniture. AY hen Maryland men want divorces with out publicity tbey take their wires out fiuh ing and upset the boat. Although there are no chinamen in Clear field, yet we are blesaed with quite a num ber of "Celestial beings." A colored military company is on the ta pis in Wiliiamsnort. Wonder if the "Col onel" will drill with them? The "luelon-cholic" season is at hand judging from the number of green "pills" on exhibition at the saloons. Not many years ago women were asham ed of false hair. Now they are ashamed to be without it. Funny, isn't it? An Ohio base ball club buried their catch er because he stood too near the batter when he was preparing for a home run. A cntemporary advises a "new departure" from former habits, by his delinquents. He wants them to pay up. That's aH. A Philadelphia hack driver drove a dead man around for half a day and never knew it until he wanted to collect the fare. The atmosphere has moderated consider able during the past week makes it ex tremely Ziarrassing for female equestrians. It is rumored that Hon.

Pleasant to rcceWe a shower of mud dy water on a pair of white pants or a dress, while standing near a house with his feci in the gutter. Ladies of uncertain age and matrimonial aspirations are pently reminded that leap year approacbeth. Another bottle of hair dye this way. A Jersey editor was feathered last week for puMi.diing a wedding description in which he said there were tight bridesmaids, instead of eight. Change of time. -The Express" train here tofore arrived at 9.30, but a young lady says it- now arrivts at the moat interesting time How is it, Ageut ? The Red Cloud band ot Sioux are report ed to be getting re.idy for the war path. Little gangs are out stealing stock to facili tate their operations. "I read my papers with more sitisfactioti when they are paid in alvance." is the tea timony of one who has tried it for years. Others should do likewise. Gentlemen having hip pockets in their pantaloons, should be careful in depositing their handkerchiefs therein. They look j rather suspicious when the tip hangs below the coat tail. Philipsburg rejoiced in the first brick pavement last week. They secin as much pleased with it, as an old cluck is with a single chick ; but, then, they expect Jo have others hereafter. Our devil says he never heard of but one old woman "who kissed a cow," but he knows hundreds of young women who kis sed great calves. The poor "imp" has had his share no doubt. Badly fooled the chap who, on Saturday night last, pitched pebbles and beans against his lady-love's bed-room window. Cut the hoir off your upper lip, and the mistress will not so easily recognize you by moon light, next time. Are girls who work for a living as good as those who pass their lime in murdering music and the peace of mind of their neigh bors, or indulging in silly gossip with soft young men,, while the "old woman" does the household work? is a question just ow agitating Williamsburg (LUair county) society. The Ku-Klux. It is represented ! by almost every citizen who has been summoned to give testimony before the Ku-Klux Investigating Committee, that it is next to impossible for any man, white or black, entertaining Republi can principles, to live in peace and safety in a Southern State. The evi dent intention of these midnight des peradoes is to bully the whites, and ter rify the blacks, when they do not kill them, so that the Republican ticket will not have any open supporters, or supporters at all, in the election for President in 1872 throughout the South. It is their only hope of carrying the Southern States. In nearly every one of them, where the people are permit ted to vote as they wish, the Republican ticket will secure a majority. The blacks to a man vote with us, and a suf ficient number of the Unionist whites are Republicans to enable us to carry two-thirds of the States without a doubt, if an honest election is held. Every ex-Rebel is a Democrat. Every member of this fiendish order is a Dem ocrat. Every colored man, and every Union man is a Republican. " Can any good citizen hesitate as to what party he should belong and vote with? All the traitors and Ku-Klux on one side, and all the Unionists on the other. PROTECTION AND Fit EE TRADE. Ten years ago eighty-seven per cent, of all the steel for machinery and edge tools made in this country came from abroad. Now, under the cherishing influence of protection, foreign steel supplies but eleven per cent, of our needs. We make for ourselves nearly nine-tenths of all we want. No man is mad enough to imagine that we could ever have achieved this result under the policy of free trade. Free trade keeps every American workingman under perpetual competi tion with all the lowest paid workmen oa the globe. If he attempts to weave cloth, he is not permitted to do so at a profit so long as the poorest Manches ter weaver can do it for less and under sell him. If he tries to raise wool he is broken, provided a single Buenos Ayrean or Australian grower can un dersell him. Whatever he does lie must do cheaper than the whole world beside, and, of course, of all the world's paupers, he must be the poorest, or else the national industry must fail in the fierce competition. The verdict of" the Coroner's jury in the cases of persons killed by the New York rioters, indicates that there wi'l be no prosecution of such parties, de spite the fact that it is distinctly assert ed by New York journals that the par ties who fired the shots are clearly known. The verdict rendered by the jury is, that the parties referred to came to their death by shots fired by unknown parties. If the New York authorities fail to make use of the most rigorous means to ascertain the guilty parties, and to punish them to the full extent of the law, there can be no other verdict than that they failel in their duty. If this fact can be clearly as certained, it will be of sufficient value todamage seriously the standing of that party, even in New York, and the Re publican party should, by means of it, carry the State. If a fusion can be made, by which the independent voters of New York and the Republican vo ters can be united on a fair representa tive man, even the city government ought to be changed at the next elec tion. Tiie Indiana Democrats are growing tired of being called "ring-tailed mon keys," we are told, and desire to make a full and complete departure to Re publican principles, or go square back to the platform of their Southern breth ren and the one dearest to their hearts, "the constitution as it was." That noted and unclean Democrat, Henry Clay Dean, says : If the Re publicans were right in making the war, creating the debt, and changing the constitution, I can see no reason why a new 6et of leeches should now be ap plied to the body politic for the mere variety of change. Another earthquake has occurred with great loss of life this time in one of the Philipine islands. Earthquakes in the East and in the West, and, in fact, nearly everywhere. What is the matter with good mother Terra? We shall soon be compelled to address her as Terra infirma. The Lebanon, Pa., Courier says that the Democratic party at the present moment reminds one of a wasp very nearly in two pieces, with the larger piece behind. - Gek. Hancock was president of the military commission which convicted Mrs. Surratt. Pennsylvania Demo crats want him for President. Philadelphia Items. Judge Kelley, the great tariff states man, is now on a visit to Colorado. Kelley was one of the first advocates of the Pacific railroad. A delegation was here last week to sec about the centennial celebration. These delegations from other States come, and a general speech-making, champagne-sipping, cigar-smoking and drives to the Park take place, and then they depart. So the centennial anni versary ball goes on. On September 6th, the iron masters of the State meet here to form a "Bar Association." That is, "iron bar as sociation." . The Pennsylvania branches of the Atlantic and Great Western railroad were sold on the 22d inst., for 620, 000. Gen. S. B. M'CIellan and Sen ator Thurman, of Ohio, were the pur chaser?. The sale for overdue coupons held in the State of Ohio. The prop erty sold was the Franklin, Meadville and Oil City branches. An idea of the commerce of Phila delphia may be gathered from the fact that 145 vessels were loading and un loading on the 23d. Twenty-three vessels were loading with oil. It cost 81,197,901 to run the public schools of this city last year. 1,539 teachers are employed. The army of scholars amounts to o2,oJl. The Y. M. C.A. have street preach ing every babbath. The building of the Penn'a Central rail road line of steamships will be let by cod tract in a few days. The Sons of America meet in narrisburg next week. T. J. Duncan, of Pittsburg, has bequeath ed Bishop Simpson $00,000. This moiety was squeezed out ot oil. 1,457,698 gallons of coal oil were shipped tor foreign parts, last week. 306 deaths occurred last week. The American Protestant Association, on Friday last, expressed themselves, "that we view with horror the attempt of the mob to supersede the government of N. Y. by force of arms, to arrest the progress of peaceable procession!), and to shoot down men and women because of a difference of religious belief." They denounce the at tack on the Orangemen as bigoted intoller ance, and an assault on the rights and lib erties of American citizens. All of which is sound doctrine. Religious speculations are just as honor a-. ble as any other. V lewinc matters in this light, the New Jersey Methodist preachers formed a company, bought grounds in West Jersey and have a camp meeting overture on Aug. 1st. $5 is charged for ground to pitch a tent, and the railroad company gives a pcrsentaee upon all tickets sold. V enly. the days of Methodism have changed since Y esley s tunc, ReC. Isaac S. Ilortley sent a "brick," removed from Independence Hall recently, in repairing the building, to President Thiers, ot France. Horlley expects this brick bat to help construct their new gov ernment, but does not advise whether it is for the foundation of a building or an orna ment for the hat. More bricks ! Francis X. di Maria, a priest sent from Rome, to engaged in Indian Missions, died on the 23d inst. Commercial agencies are fixed insti tutions, but not always reliable. A case was before the St. Louis caurts recent ly which developed the fact that the reliability of merchants and business men was reputed according to the per sonal feelings of the Agent. Clearfield business men had better not snub the Agency. Keep on the right side and be reported A 1. Recollect the Agen cy spies into all your business trans actions. Peaches sold on Saturday at 50 cts. a basket; $1. 25 a box. July 31, 1871. - Z. It is stated, in a London dispatch to New York, that the Pope may at any time leave Rome for Corsica, and that the chateau of Corti has been pla ced at his disposal. The rumor, so long in circulation, that arrangements were being made at Rome for the elec tion of his successor, have assumed greater definiteness, Cardinal Carnello de Tietro being named as his probable successor. Preparations are going forward that indicate that the ex-Emperor Na poleon is about to take up his residence at his house in Ahrenseurg, in Switz erland. Every part of the residence is being put in perfect condition, and horses and carriages are arriving, all looking to the speedy transfer of Na poleon to his old home. Switzerland is very convenient to Paris. It IS reported that a company of European capitalists arc about to em bark for the United States, for the purpose of inquiring into the condition and prospects of the Northern Pacific Railroad. A movement of this kind doubtless "means business." The horn of a Patagonian ox lias been forwarded to Baltimore. It is sixty-five inches long, seventeen inches in circumference at the base, and will hold seven quarts. Mrs. John Allen was instantly killed by lightning last week, at Washington, Pa. Her youngest child and a Mrs. Wolf were stunned at the same time. In one day, recently, 10,000 buffalo robes were shipped from Leavenworth, Kansas, to the east.
