Col. Augustus II. Ferm, of Connecticut,
who lost an arm in the war and was tlie Re
publican candidate for Secretary of State in 1
1875, has declared for Tilden and Hendricks. i
And still they come.
“Live within your income,” says Gov.
Tilden, and there is more reform in this
trite piece of advice than in reams of such
trash as “Lot us have peace,” and “let no
guilty man escaj»©.”
According to the Radical accounts the
gentleman who has been Governor of New
Y”ork for the past two years wasn’t Samuel
J. Tilden at all. Il was some other man.
Very well. Uncle Samuel will establish
his identity before November.
Has anybody heard that tho coopers who
have been making barrels for Tilden’s
money struck for higher wages after 3,796
barrels had been shipped away, and that
old Tilden refused to accede to their de
mands ? This is a shocking outrage.
The largest Democratic vote ever cast in
Vermont, previous to this year, was 16,613
in 1873. This year the official count will
show a Democratic vote of between 22,000
and 23,000. So in Maine, notwithstanding
the extra efforts of Blaine it Co., the Demo
cratic vote is larger than ever before.
Hayes was a furious Know-Nothing, and
this, coupled with their desires for reform,
accounts for the fact that nine-tenths of the
circulations of all the German papers and
a larger percentage of German voters are so
enthusiastic for Tilden and Hendricks.
