FORCED TO PAT UP. In the surveyor’# office, under Mr. Beattie, tile contributions, a* far a* is shown by the testimony of the twenty-eight witiiAwsiw examined were universal. Tile Democrats generally gave their money of their own accord; hut all the Ri'jiuhlk-an clerks were {iraA-th-ally forceit against their will to jiay w hat were in reality jioiitiral asM'ssrneiite for tile Lmnefit of the party to which they were oj»pivied.
