The Registration tu This fount)-.
Wa have ooljr receired tin returns
from four election districts, and (heat
ihow an increaso over the registration of
1870. The second election district com
pond of a portion of Hurricane, township
and embracing New Hope, registered
402 voters ; election district Ne. 4, em
bracing all of Bedford township, regis
tered 420; election district No. 0, em
bracing l'rairie township, registered li!5,
and election district No. 8, embracing
Waverly tonnahip, registered 1S8.
These ore all we have heard from up te
the time of going to press.
In 1870 the whole of Hurricane town
ship registered 479 votes, while this year
boo half of the township runs it up to
402. Bedford township in 1870 regis
tered 388 voters ; this vear the number
has already reached 420 l'rairie town
hip registered, in 1S70, 140 voters, and
this year only 135 ; but since the last
general registration a large strip of terri
tory hat been taken off that township,
also Milltro.d and Waverly, to form tbe
township of Nineveh ; and this accounts
for the number, which in reality is an in
crease over the registration of 1870
Waverly township registered 175 voters
in 1870, and 1S8 tbe present year, an in
erase of 13 voters, notwithstanding tbe
fact that a large pertion of that township
went to form Nineveh, and tbe voters
living in it registered at tbe latter place.
There were registered throachout tbe
eonuty ia 1570 only 2,155 voters; but
if tbe ratio of increase in tbe districts to

Tbi, however, is not as large a showing '
ss we should make. The vote of Lincoln
eoaoty has been estimated at 3,500, but
we deo't tnmk there aro that many vo
ters in tbe county. Our population in
1570 was 15,787, which, being divided
by G, tbe ratio of voters to tbo population,
would give us a voting population of
2,031. 'I be increase since then will
probably raise it te 3,000, which we take
i; Li about the vote of the county, and we
ill be surprised if it overreaches that;
kct this nambr should be reached by
all meant, and we provail upon thoso whe
Lave not yet registered to appear bolbre

thrt wo record the result of the elections
on the 8th inst. Pennsylvania went Rad
ical by about 30,000 majority ; Ohio
by about 10,000 ; and Indiana elected
n Democrat (Hendricks) governor by
shoot GOO majority, wliilo the balance
of the state ticket elected were Rad
icals. We looked toward Pennsylvania
with faint hopo for a Liberal victory
oo account of the crimes with which
Hartranft, the Radical candidate for gov
ernor, was charged by leading men of his
own party, among them Forney and Cur
tin; but notwithstanding the fact that
these oharges were pretty well proven to
be true, tbe Radicals rallied around bim.
and the result it as stated above a
proof that tbo members of that party
think moro of a political victory than
they do of getting honest men in office.
It seems that if they were to run a man
just out of tbe penitentiary, they would
elect him, and Ycrkes would probably
have been as successful as Hurtranft if
be had been the nominee.
These elections have probably dis
couraged a fair Libera!, but if wo believe
tbo reports that are pouring in through
our exchanges, a rally is taking place
along the whole line, and the ranks are
closing up finely. "As goes Pennsylva
nia, so goes the Union," was once a relia
ble maxim, but our friends refuse now to
take this as an omen of final defoat, and
they intend to fight it out to the bitter
end. There is good reason for this, too,
for looking over the field and counting
up the electoral vote, wc fiud that Gree
ley will have a probable majority in tlio
electoral college sufficient to elect him.

We are not sangaina enough to believe
Greeley will get all the states that arc
here put down for him, but he can spare
one or tws of tbem, and still come out
ahead; but should New York go Uepub
lican, then itt all up with us. The Rad
teals are now turning their attention to
tbat state and New Jersey. Tbe admin-

states like water, and the American peo
pie have learned how it may influence
elections. Our chief, however, looks out
calmly and cheerfully on the rolling,
turgiig waves tbat threaten to sweep
over and bear down our bravo young
ship. Mr. Greeley says we can surely
count upon 12$ electoral votes in the
South, and that the North will give us
the rest; and we knew that there is not
another man in the whole country whs
knows bettor what tbo final result of the
olection will be, for there are few men
who understand the people of this great
country better than he.
But if we would succeed wo must
work. We have been defeated in the
first skirmish, but the great deciding
battle is yet to be fought, and to gain the
victory every soldier in the Liberal cause
j will have to Btand square up in the great
political line of battle. Democrats, stand

We therefor say to our friends every
where, be firm and deti mt, give not an
inch of ground, and hold yourselvos
ready for any emergency. This is thp
first time we have gone into action, and
wc have met a repulse That repulse
should inspire our energies and our
courage It should unite us against the
enemy. It should bring accordance and
unity of sentiment to our much divided
ranks. A defeat of this sort is often the
medium through which great and power
ful organizations arc formed. Tho He
publican party itself was thus repulsed
in 1S5G. Our Liberal movement is
hardly two ears old. It in I he natural
antithesis of Radicalism and if tree gov
eminent is to continue iu America its
principles must prevail in the ndminU
tration of the national government. The
old parties will pass awuy with the con
test. The party of the future is the
party of Liberalism, Reform and Peace.
I hat may lie in the immediate present
i will develop itsell from day lo day
But nothing is clearer than this; that we
have only to be firm and steady, to main
tain the integrity of our convictions, to
I repel the suggestions of the timeserving,
j and scorn the seductions of the corrupt,
l holding fast to our faith and standing by
our colors and our guns, There is safety
only in this plain and open course. We
shall for our part pursue it, neither
i daunted nor despondent ; but hating Rad
icalism only the more as it shows itself
me more corrupt, poweriui ana danger
ous. We sincerely believe it to bo the
essenco of all corruption in tho stale.
W are honestly in the belief that its
leaders are a body of unscrupulous des
peradoes, bent upon the ruin of the coun
try. Yesterday should be put down on
ibe calendar as All Rogue's Day. It
certainly presents us a victory for three,
at least, ot toe most conspicuous rogues
the history of party debauchery ever
produced. Mre than this need not bo
said, for more than this cannot be fairly
laid to the cnarge ot tbe btb ot October,

Grant's election Means Imperialism
i no aeieats in rennsyivania, and say
in unto and ludiaua, do not in any re
spect assure the election of General
Grant. Tho supporters of Mr. Greeley,
as well as those ot the present adminis
tration, are opt to regard the October
elections as decisive. It should, how
ever, be recollected that these elections
have turned mainly upon local issues.
and that, however they may havo resulted.
tbe luturo ot tbe Liberal Democratic
ticket is in no manner fully tested
There have unquestionably been out
ragoous frauds perpetrated in the Pen-
nsylvania election, with the knowledge
and onset connivance or tbe adminis
tration, and had the full Democratic vote
been polled, there is no question but that
tne result would have been lor different

Wo regard the election of Ilosaee
Greeley as a duty we owe to the despoiled
anu outraged couth, and as a riddance
for the whole country of the authorized
leeches, applied and authorized by the
present centralized government.
Wo believe also tbat General Grant's
election means imperialism, and tbat if be
be re. elected, we may abaudon all bopo
of a Republican form of government, and
make up our minds that an emperor is
as suitable as a president.
It it high time indeed tbat the people
were thinking. A second term for tbe
present corrupt administration will only
prevo to us that American citizens have
lost their confidence in self-government,
and propose, at party dictation, to es
tablish an oligarchy which shall have
the libertiet of all entirely within their
control. Again wo say tbat General
Grant' election means imperialism, and
we urge all Democrats to withdraw their
personal preferences and support tbe only
ticket that can relieve tbe South and
West of political and commercial vas

The proceeding of th association wan
completely broken up. Tho pattor of
tho church went out und endeavored to
persuade them to leave, and on their re
fusing to do eo the theriff of the county
arrested Long for disturbing tho relig--ious
assembly. Tbe toldiert cocked
their cunt upon tho theriff and com
manded Long to come out. Efforts were
mado to induce them to behave, and they
were promised they would not ha arresud
for further violating th law of tho ttate
and or tb United State if they would
quietly leave the church grounds. They
rodo oft in th direction of the tprine.
nd many membert of the association
returned to th house, thinking they
woro gone. But they toon returned, and
were galloping over the church grounds
with tbeir gun and pistols, and broke
up th astoeiation tbat evening. When
people atarted for borne they found th
road picketed by soldier who were
under Long't command, and even womeu
nd children were arretted with guns
pointed at them, and compelled to wait
the pleasure of this fellow Long before
they could get home. Blnss, I am in
formed by an eye-witness, cocked his

in a wagon, and threatened to shoot her if
she didn't Atop at once. The whole pro
cceding was an outrage upon religious
liberty, perpetrated by officers and sol
dicrt of tho United States covornment.
The excuse they rendered for their eon
duct wa that they were searching for one
Mayherry, who wat charged with being a
Ku klux.

political excitement of th campaign will
