REPUBLICAN STATE TICKET,

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

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 ?

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.

The American Protestant Association, on

religious belief." They denounce the at

is sound doctrine.
