..tftsmaa's Imtrnnl. s. J. cow.EtiiToni.xDrBorr.ir.TOB. CLKAUFIELD, PA., AUGUST 9, 1871. REPUBLICAN STATE TICKET. FOB ATDTTOa 625ER.IL Z Col. DAVID STANTON, of Beaver. EOtl SLBVETOR CG.XUUAL: Col. EGBERT f. EEATH, of Schuylkill. The "Mob Partv," is the new name by which the Democracy arc known in many sections of the country. If ths creait of the Government is to be maintained, the Republican party inu.it be perpetuate !. Democratic vic tory will hasten national repudiation, after which comes goner; 1 bankruptcy. The Canadian authorities arc ac co.ni io dating themselves to the terms of the new treaty, by proposing to ad mit American fishermen to the privi leges specified, even before the final ratification of that instrument. Tue party which gave birth to rebel lion, and encouraged traitors to arm for the dissolution of the Union, is not fit to be trusted with the management of the Government. Such is the opin ion of two-thirds of the intelligent vo ters of Pennsylvania. The Tittsburg D!palcli says : "It is palpable that the greatest harmony and energy will prevail this campaign, an 1 ths Il.-publiean party will show in the ensuing election just what its strength is. The result we promise, will be a grand victory, the moral of which will be that the country will be triumphantly swept in 1S72 by the Republican party, with Grant at its head." Every man who makes his livin at a forge fire, a rolling mill, a furnace, or in any manufactory whatever, should not forget that the Democratic leaders and organs in Pennsylvania are the out-spoken advocates of free trade, by which all such workmen are to be brot' to r, level with the pauper labor of the Old World. Votes for Democratic candidates are voices in favor of the reduction of the wages of American mechanics. President Grant has been formal ly proposed for renomination by the Republicans of New Orleans. There never before was such a general una nimity of sentiment in a party regard ing the selection of its candidate for the Presidency ; and nearly every Re publican paper of the Vision acquies ces in this wide-spread desire of the loyal people, that the man who has been so successful, both in war and peace, shall be retained in the executive chair for another four years. There never was a party guilty of corruption? like that which disgraces Democratic government in New York city. The record of the foulness there is the mo -t disgraceful ever presented to the consideration of the American people, and 3-ct it is only an improve ment on Democratic transactions when i 1 power. The old Canal Board of Pennsylvania, when in Democratic hands, were in the habit of asking the Legislature for appropriations to carry on the public works, when it is well known there wss business sufficient done thereon to have paid the State profitable dividends. The Democratic party never could and never can rule without corruption. Another splendid showing is made in the statement of Secretary IJoutwell for July. Gradually but surely the burden imposed on the country by the D cuiocratic rebellion is bcin lighten- o c cd under the administration of the Government by General Grant. The reduction of the debt daring the past month amounted to the large sum of $,701,970, making a total decrease since President Grant's inauguration of over 240,000,000. Thesenontli ly reductions are practical arguments of the strongest kind of proof of Re publican economy and sound financial management. Let every voter contrast them with the notorious and stupendous robberies by the Democratic adminis tration of Xew York city. The Re publican rulers of the nation arc redu cing both taxation and the debt. The Democratic rulers of New York are in creasing taxation and the city debt at an alarming rate, and hive bsen prov ed by their own books a set of outra geous thieves, Another IIoreoii. A most appal ing disaster occurred at New York on Sunday, afternoon, July 30th. The Staten Island ferry-boat, WestfelJ, was about to start on her return trip, with over four hundred souls on board, when her huge boiler suddenly explo ded. Those who witnessed the disas ter say there was first a dull, crunch ing sound, somewhat like that made by the fall of a large building, followed immediately by the sharp his3 of es caping steam. The main deck was for ced upwards for a considerable dis tance ; the beams and planks torn to pieces. Many were throwi high into the air, and fell back into the hold a confused mass. A majority of the pas sengers were collected on the main deck, directly over the boiler, many of whom were blown into the air to the height of thirty and forty feet, falling back into the wreck or into the water. Soma were killed outright, others scald ed to death, while others died from the injuries received. Thus far the victims number 76 killed and 117 wounded many of the latter will yet die. The scene after the disaster is described as the most heartrending and sickeninir that was ever witnessed in that city. The cause of the explosion is yet un known, and, perhaps, will never be as certained satisfactorily. "A Young Democrat" in Maine groans at the imbecility of the Fogy Leaders of his party, and declares that "so long as they run the machine" the s lid party will be beaten. For one, he doesn't relish going every year to the polls "to be whipped out of his boots he has no courage, much less heart, in such a contest." "Under such lead," he says, "we merely go to the ballot box every September to have a census taken of the Democratic party." The poor young man wants to vote "with a reasonable prospect of being victori ous." Still, in spite of faction, the party is said to be about as well united as ever. The Hunkers have only to snap their lingers, and the "young 'uns" fall into line like good boys as they are. A tl blic meeting is to be held in New York to determine what action shall be taken relative to the frauds practiced by Hall, Connolly & Co. It is thought that steps will be taken to bring the gentlemen criminated to jus tice, or to compel their abandonment of the position they have so unworthily filled. The method employed to reach the last named result may be to call upon them formally to resign and if they do not, to bring to bear upon them the power of the law. If New York proves itself equal to the present emer gency, it. will do it vast good for a long time to come. The N. Y. Sun is sarcastic in its remarks in regard to the "Shameful Treatment of a Poor Plasterer" by the Comptroller. It sajs: "Wc are in formed that Mr. Andrew J. Garvey, an industrious plastercr,has commenced a suit against the city for a little bal ance of between one and two hundred thousand dollars, which the Comptrol ler refuses to pay. Things are coming to a pretty pas3 when a poor plasterer is compelled to sue a great corporation like that of New York for his hard The Portland Press says: "Every day the present investigation of the Congressional Committee proceeds, it finds abundantand cumulative evidence of the existence and spread of these disguised bands of outlaws known as Ku Klux, throughout the South. Every day the testimony of reliable men goes to prove that any delay in the enact ment of the legislation of last spring, would not only hare been a grave mis take, but criminal negligence on the part of Congress." 1.1 m mm There arc rumors of impending troubles in Europe ; this time between Austria and Russia. The apparent friendship existing between Prussia or rather the Empire of Germany and Russia, would seem to indicate that poor Austria stands a good chance of being effectually ground up between the upper and nether millstones. TnE Democratic party is the first po litical organization in this country which has deliberately plotted to deluge a city with the blood of a fanatical reli gious welfare. Hence, peaceable Chris tians cannot touch that organization without being corrupted by its foulness. Felix R. Brcnot, of- Allegheny county, Pa., is the new Commissioner of Indian affairs, recently appointed by President Grant ; a post for which he is said to be well fitted. John W. Douglas, Esq., of Erie county, Pa., has been appointed Com missioner of Internal Revenue, by President Grant, vice Gen. Pleasanton. A Little of Everything. The flies era diminishing in number. Mere matter of form fitting a dress. A hack in Chicago is called a verminag ery. The days are getting perceptibly shorter at both ends. The young lady whose feelings were "all worked up" has ordered a fresh supply. A woman and child were bitten by a rat tlesnake in Luzerne county last week, both of whom have died. A girl in Wisconsin swallowed forty per cussion caps. Her mother refrained from fpanking her for fear of an explosion. "I wonder what causes my eyes to bo so weak ?" said a fop to a gentleman. "They are iu a weak place," replied the latter. Hon. Thomas A. Scott is accredited with being President of two railroad companies, Vice President of eleven, and Director of thirty four. An Omaha paper advises the people "not to make such a fuss about the shooting of one constable, as there ere over forty candi dates for the position." Mifflintowners luxuriate on new potatoes at the rate of 50 cents per Lu.-hel. Ilere aways, for some unexplained reason, they command double that figure. A gentleman of Ca-.nbridse, JTass., is the owner of a one week old colt, that measures only twenty-three inches in height, and weighs but twenty seven pounds. The voice of the turtle is heard in the land. It's the voice of the Democratic tur tle). The turtle's got a hot coal on its lack and that's the reason you hear from it. A man in an ecstatic- mood exclaimed, "Woman is the primeval cause of all hap piness ;" wlien a bystander remarked : "No doubt, for she is the prime evil herself." Xew Hampshire is described as a State which would be as large as Illinois it it were only as fiat, but is crumpled up until it can be tucked into a mere corner of the map. A five year-old city boy told his mother how to triage butter : "You just take n long stick with u cross at the end of it ; then you get a big tub; and then you borrow a cow." Peaches, considering their abundance, command extravagantly high prices. Doubt less they will be lower by and by, when prit.ters aud other poor people can afford to indulge. A youns doctor, ca being a.skcd to con tribute toward inclosing and ornamenting the village cemetery, very coolly remarked that if he helped to fill it he thought he should do his part. The temperance people talk of starting a a paper, to be called the Lrnum Drop. They will try and make it a valuable Lern- onaid to the cause of temperance. If they don't it will be Dropped. It is denied on the part of ex President Andrew Johnson that he is going to visit r ranee ; he has no desire to make a tangent to his famous circle, and Paris has no charms for him as Thiers has no policy. Prof. Hitchcock and his exploring party came upon a hitherto unknown hike in the White Mountains the other day, which is as pure as crystal, and has an altitude of 3.7S7 fret above the level of the sea. At the dinner of an Irish association, not long since, the following toast was given: "Here's to the President of the Society, Patrick O'Raffcrty, and may he live to eat the chicken that scratches over his grave." "Why, Uncle Johnny," said his friend, "can you afford to eat shad at twenty-five cents a pound?" "Ach, wohl !" said Un cle Johnny triumphantly, "I can put him in mine ice-chest and keep him until he gets sh caper." Mrs. Sallie Ward Hunt, a noted woman of fashion of Louisville, Ky., now a widow, has sued Mr. Newcomb, of that city, for breaking his promise of marriage to her. Price fixed at $.100,000. It must have been a Dig promise. "You have considerable floating popula tion in this village, haven't you?" asked a stranger of one of the citizens of a village on the Mississippi. "Well, yes, rather," was the reply, "about half the year the water is up to the second story window." In Dallas county, Arkansas, an extraordi narily long- lived and prolific pair resides. The father is 10G, the mother 106, and they arc the parents of. do-less than 29 healthy and vigorous children 15 bojs and 14 girls all of whom promise to reach a ripe old age. Who thinks the American race is dying out? Fasten a nail or key to a string and sus pend it to your thumb and fingerTand the nail will oscilliatc like a pendulum. Let sonic one place hi3 open hand under the nail and it will change to a circular motion. Then let a third person place his hand upon your shoulder, and in a moment the nail becomes stationary, A Louisville doctor came into possession a few days ago.of a rattlesnake.and to kill it, aud yet preserve its body intact, he admin istered chloroform, and when all signs of life had disappeared he put it in a jar of alcohol. About fifteen minutes after being in the spirits the snake showed signs of life, and lived half an hour. A quaker gentleman, riding in a carriage with a lady decked with a profusion of jew elry, heard her complain of the cold. Shiv ering in her lace bonnet and shawl, thin as a oobweb, she exclaimed : "What shall I do to get warm ?' "I really don't know," re plied: the Quaker, solemnly, "unless thee should put on another breast pin." An elderly lady stepped into one of our dental offices, the other day, and was hand ling a pair of artificial plates, and admiring the fluency with which the dentist described them, asked him : "Can a body eat with these things ?" "My dear madam, masti cation can be performed with a facility scarcely equaled by nature herself," respon ded the dentist: "Yes, I know, but au a body cat with them ?" It 15 pretty well understood in well informed political circles that the peo ple of Pennsylvania will decide by a ballot next October that there is no lon ger any need of continuing the organ ization of the Democratic party. Like the rebel army, it will be paroled. News from the gold and silver min ing districts of Colorado, Idaho, Montano and Arizona, gives a cheering account of successful opera tions. The weather has been highly favorable for out-door work. The exposure of corruption in New York, showing the manner in which the Democratic leaders conduct affairs there, falls like a wet blanket on the hopes of the Democracy all over the country. Democratic victories at the ballot box will be the demoralization of free labor, because the effect will be to close our workshops and open our ports to the pauper productions of the old world. Mr. Hendricks, of Indiana, is loom ing up in tho Presidential scales of the Democracy, since the New York rioti, while Mr. Hoffman is going down. The stories concerning the extent of the famine and disease prevailing in Persia, are greatly cxaggerated,accor J ing to semi-official news. . Eepublican Forty Becord. A brief recapitulation of the various measures eDacted by the Republican party, during its ten years of power, in behalf of the cause of liberty and equal political n.d civil rights to all men, without regard to race or color, will be a matter of useful in lormation to our readers at this time, and aid them iu coming to a just and correct de cision as to the party they can most safely trust hereafter. The first blovv at the "Divine" institution of slavery was a bill, which became a law in August, J SGI. confiscating all property aud setting free all slaves u:cd in aid of the re bellion. January 25, 1SG2, a law was pa.sed pro hibiting the use of the jails of the District of Columbia for the imprisonment of fugi tive slaves. The great measure emancipating the three thousand slaves of the D.strict passed both Houses of Congress and was signed by the President in April, 1862. On the 13th of March, 18G2, a bill became a law forbidding and punishing the return of fugitive slaves coming into our lines, by naval and military officers. March G, of the same year, the President had recommended the passage of a joint resolution proposing a co operation between the General Government and the slave States for the general abolition ot slavery, on the principle of compensation to the owners. During the month a bill covering this sug gestion passed both houses, and was signed by ike Precedent April 10. The bill abolishing the long existing, odi ous distinction" in the District against the colored people, fuch as taxing thom for the education cf white children and denying them all benefit from the tax, became a law in May, 1SG2. . June 19th, 1SG2, the President signed a bill, which had passed both Houses, pro hibiting slavery forever iu all the Territories of the Lnitcd states. June, 1SG2, a law was enacted establish ing diplomatic relations with the republics or .Liberia and llayti. In July of the tame year, a law passed conferring upon colored persons tho riirht to testify in courts of justice ; also, j r hibiting the inter btate coastwise slave trade. In July, 1&G2, a bill became a law cman cipating slaves coming within our lines whose masters were in rebellion and all slaves found in places captured by our troops. July 7, 1SG2. President Lincoln approved a bill punishing the infamous practice ot using the American flag for the protection of vessels engaged in the slave trade, in open defiance, as had grown to be the prac tice, cf a plain constitutional provision. Under the provisions of this act cue Gordon captured, w hile engaged in the slave trade, was tried, convicted, and executed. July 17, 1SG2, a law was enacted authori zing the enlistment and military organiza tion of colored men. September 22, 1862, President Lincoln issued a proclamation declaring that on the 1st of January ensuing he should issue an other proclaiming all persons free in such States as might be named. And on that day the immortal declaration declaring all slaves forever free in Arkansas, Texas, Loui.tina, - Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, North and South Carolina, and Virginia was issued. March. 1SG3, a law was enacted incorpo rating an institution for the education of colored youths, to be located in thi District, from which has grown up the Howard Unt versity. A law was enacted in February, 18G4, en rolling all colored men, whether slaves or not, into the national forces, allowing loyal masters a bounty of $300 for t heir slaves afterwards reduced to $100 bounty. But this was wholly repealed in 1867. On the 11th of June, 18G4, a bill became a law placing colored soldiers on a footing of equality in all respects with white sol diers. Jur e C8, 1SG4, a bill was signed repealing the it famous Dt mcratic fugitive slave law. In 1864 a law was passed allowing colored men to contract for carrying the mails. Thei.fcar before the act was passed pro hibiting all distinctions on account of race or color in the public conveyances of this District. The law creating the Frecdman's Bureau was passed early in the year 18G5. January 27, 18G5, the famous thirteenth amendment to the Constitution, which had previously been approved by the Senate, passed the House of Representatives, for ever abolishing slavery in the United States. During this year acts were passed repeal ing the various measures enacted by the Southern States under Johnson's rule, de signed to re establish slavery in another form, authorizing the disgraceful appren ticeship system, the law in regard to va grancy, and authorizing the whipping of negroes. The same year a law was passed abolish ing the system of peonage slavery in New. Mexico. In December,' 1865, a resolution passed both Houses of Congress appointing the joint Committee on Reconstruction. to whom was referred the credentials ot an persons claiming seats from Johnson's reconstructed States, and all measures in regard to recon struction. February 28, 1866, an act was passed de claring that none of the rebel States were entitled to representation in Congress until Congress shall have declared such right. In April, 1866, the civil rights bill, which Johnson had vetoed, became a law by ceiving tho necessary two thirds majority. June 13, 1S6G, the fourteenth amendment was passed, making all persons born or nat uralized in the United States citizens, pro hibiting the States from passing any jaw which shall abridge the annuities or privi leges of such citizens, defining who shall be Senators or Representatives, protecting the civil rights of all citizens, declaring that the validiiy of the public debt shall never be questioned, and prohibiting the Unied States and the several States from ever as suming or paying the rebel debt, and ren dering it illegal and void. In December, I860, Congress passed over Johnson's veto an act establishing universal suffrage in the District of Columbia. In January, 1867, a bill was parsed decla ring that within no territory ot the United States should suffrage be denied on account of ra color, or former condition. In February. 18G7. the fifteenth amend ment, securing to colored men tho right of suffrage, and forever prohibiting its with drawal, passed both branches of Congress. In March. 1S69, a law was passed striking the word icJu'le from all the ordinances of the District of Columbia, destroying all dis crimination against colored men in such laws or ordinances. In May, 1870, the bill known as (he en forcement act became a law, its object being to protect colored men in all the rights to which other citizens are entitled. In April, 1871, Congresi passed what is known as the Ku Klux act, giving the Pres ident power to protect the lojal people of the South again -it organized bands of assas sins, and rendering the people of a country or city, under certain conditions, responsible for the damages doue therein by these out laws. Such, briefly," are the leading measures adopted by a -Republican Congress, and sanctioned and sustained by the Repub'ican party, for securing to the colored people of the nation the boon of liberty and the right of equal American citizenship. As a "companion-piece" to this long list of acts in the interest of justice and human ity, we ought, perhaps, to publish the record of the Democratic party in behalf of slavery, wrong and outrage. But it can hardly be necessary, at least until the wounds inflicted upon the backs of the four millions of ex-slaves have had time to heal. It colored men bear no mal ice against their Dmwratij owners, ib.3y will not be apt to forget who fastened and who broke their chains. Slew 5tdrcrttecmrnt& v .
