What We'll Hear.
In the campaign about to open
we may expect to hear all about
the State debt. Men ' who have
shown themselves incapable of run
ning a two-horse farm profitably
will tell the people exactly how
the State debt was incurred and
exactly how it can be paid. Men
who can't tell in three guesses how
many counties there are in the
State will tell how much ignorance
has been shown by our law-ma
kers in the past.
Men will denounce members of
the Republican party as ''Radi
cals," who can't tell what the term
signifies if they were on oath.
Men will dwell patneticaijyon
the purchase of 44 cork-screws " and
44 ostrich feathers " by State officers
without ever knowing or telling
how much the Legislative Depart
ment of the State government costs
during the past year.
Men will promise to favor a re
duction of taxes, who won't be able
and delegates appointed. They
have set an example in this respect
which it behooves us to soeedilv
In those counties which are hope
lessly democratic there should be
a consultation in our party, wrhich
will look to the bringing out of our
entire effective strength, and to
taking advantage of any dissensions
among our opponents. Because in
those very counties there has here
tofore been a deficit in our real
strength, and care should be taken
that those votes which may be lost
in the county should count in the
elections which we have a reason
able hope to carry. IVil. Post.
Sexator Sumner's Axcestry.
The Society of the Cincinnati of

information relative to his ances

son of Charles Pinckney Sumner,

child who is left motherless. A
child will go to her in perfect con

that can guide and direct in the

How often we hear one say, 44 oh !

or if I could call her back again
I'd love her better than before."
How little we appreciate a mother's
real worth, and we do not miss her

The many Iriends of Maj. John
Reilly, State Auditor, have been fa

ville for the past few days. Maj.
Reilly enjoys the reputation not
only of being one of the cleverest of
gentlemen, but ot tilling every po
sition of trust to which he has been
called by the people in an eminently
satisfactory manner. His enemies
have 44 investigated " him and
44 sifted" him, and have been com
pelled to withdraw every whisper of
reproach that has vainly endeavored
to spot him. Quiet and reserved, he

but his friends, who are not confined
to hisi own political party, who do

honest, upright and faithful public
servant, against whom the shafts of
slander and malice will ever avail
nothing. The Republican party in
this section are proud of their rep

State,; and his political enemies here
regard him with the highest degree
of respect and confidence. Fayette
