Since writing iuy last, the reform movement in this vicinity has received a new Ímpetus. Thursday of last week the Democrats of Manchester raised a beautiful hickory, 138 feet in length. A large banner, 13x28 feet, ttoats from the peak, bearing the names of Tilden and Hendricks, and a very perfect Iikeneas of the great " ring smasher." Short speeches were made in the afternoon by Hon. J D. Corey and Wm. G. Doty, who oocupied the, ïme until the arrival of the regular speakers Messrs. Harriman and Richmond. In the evening the latter gentlemen addressed the Reform Club at their headquarters. Mr. Harriman did himself great credit by the able and masterly marnier in which he discussed the political issues of the day. Coming into our commumty almost a stranger to most of us, except by reputation, he has gaiued the confidence and approbation of the party by his able advooaoy of lts principies and that "suaviter in modo" which has made him deservedly popular. Manchester will give him a rousing majority. The county uominations give general satisfaction in this vicinity. The convention was evidently actuated by a sinceie determination to place the best men upon the ticket, and succeeded admirably in their purpose. We Manchester people consider the nomination of J. S. Case, for Sheriff, au excellent one for we have been daily witnesses of his etti- ciency and zeal as au officer. He will ueed no U. S. Marshal to assist him in enforcing the laws. Friday evening the lóth iust., Messrs. Harriman and Richinoud addressed the Democracy of Iron Creek in this township, at the church, and made some very telliug argumenta for Tilden and Reform. State Senator J. D. Gorey and Win. Gr. Doty also addreased the meeting, and at a very late hour the audience dispersed. The meeting was a very successtul one, being conducted in that orderly and systematic marnier which distinguishes the friends of Reform in this campaigu.
