of the Democratic County Convention

The Gazette says that $3,000 of the

administration of Messrs. Shuck and

The Philadelphia Inquirer, whose ed
itor is a kind of aid de camp of the U
nion League, having reconnoitred the
Democratic Convention at Harrisburg,
"The Democracy of Pennsylvania met
in Convention in the Hall of the House
of Representatives this morning, to
nominate a candidate for the Supreme
Bench and arrange matters. The Con
vention is full; the outside attendance
is large, and the usual well-drilled but
tumultuous enthusiasm of the rank
and tile lends force and vim to the pro
ceedings. Altogether, the Convention
is an able and respectable one."
Such commendation from such a
source at such a time, ought to have
some weight with the "loyal people of
Finally, however, the list was nar
rowed down to Boyle and Black. The
former was the acknowledged repre
sentative of the "Young Democracy,"
and he was accordingly arrayed against
Mr. Black, one of the old apostles of
the party, whose management was be
coming obnoxious to the young blood.
The result was a complete victory for
Young America, an i a terrible defeat
for the old dynasty. Charles E. Boyle
received 74 votes; Hon. Jeremiah S.
Black received 44 votes. This result
was greeted with loud and continuous
cheers. — Philadelphia Inquirer.
The above is said in regard to the e
lecuon of the President of the late Dem
ocratic State Convention. It is not
true that there was any contest between
what the Inquirer styles the "Young
Democracy," and the "old dynasty,"
nor was Judge Black a candidate for
any position in the gift of the Conven
tion. He peremptorily refused to per
mit his name to be used in connection
with the presidency of the Convention,
and made a speech recommending his
friends to vote for Mr. Boyle. The
votes cast for him were given him in
spite of his determination not to per
mit the use of his name.
THE PRESS VS. THE KADK AI. LEGIS
There is scarcely a Radical newspa
per in the State, (with the exception of
the Harrisburg Telegraph , which lives
upon legislative pap) that has not de
nounced the late Radical Legislature in
the most unqualified terms. The uni
versal verdict of the presses of both
parties, is, that the last legislature was
the most corrupt and infamous that
ever assembled at Harrisburg. The
other day Forney''s Press added its tes
timony to the long and damning col
umn of evidence against that execra
ted body. Thus speaks the Press :
"These men (members of the Legis
lature,) were sent to Harrisburg to at
tend to the public interests. They lost
sight of them entirely in the mass of
grivate acts which flooded the chant
ers. It seems that we might just as
well have no representatives at Harris
burg as the ones we had last session.
We await with interest some apology
or attempted explanation from the sup
posititious guardians of the public weal.
So far, in no part oi the State, we be
lieve, have any of our Senators or As
semblymen undertaken to explain how
it was* that several general bills passed
both Houses without any one knowing
anythingabout thein. It is bad enough
to neglect public business, but it is
criminal to be surprised. In the army
those officers who suffered themselves
to be taken by surprise were court-mar
tialed and disgraced, or shot, and they
had excuses our over-paid Legislature
never can have."

This body assembled at Harrisburg,

mittee for this district. The Committee
on resolutions, then reported the fol
lowing platform, which was unani
mously adopted, after which tho Con
vention adjourned sitie die:
We, the delegates of the Democratic
party of Pennsylvania in general
State Convention assembled, for the
nomination of a candidate for Judge
of the Sup 1 erne Court, profoundly grate
ful to the Supreme Ruler of the Universe
for the return of peace to our beloved
country, but deeply anxious on account
of the trials and delays which impede
the complete restoration and reunion of
all the States, and appreciating the dan
gers which still threaten the safety of
our political institutions, and the future
peace, liberty and prosperity of the peo
1. That we steadfastly adhere to the
principles of civil government estab
lished by the founders of the Union ,
and in the present conflict of legisla
tive usurpation with constitutional
law, we esteem a wise, upright and
fearless judiciary the great bulwark of
public liberty and individual right.
2. That the Union of the States is per
petual, and the Federal Government
supreme within its constitutional lim
3. That Representation in the Congress
of the United States, and in the elec
toral college, is a right fundamental
and indestructible in its nature and
abiding in every State, being a duty as
well as a right pertaining to the people
of every State and essential to our Re
publican system of Government. Its
denial is the destruction of the Govern
4. Each State having under the Con
stitution theexclusi ve right to prescribe
the qualifications of its own electors, we
proclaim as a usurpation and an outrage
the establishment of negro suffrage in
any of the States by the coercive exer
cise of Federal power: and we shall re
sist to the last resort the threatened
measures of the leaders of the Republi
can party to interfere by acts of Con
gress with the regulation of the elec
tive franchise in the State of Pennsyl
5. That we are opposed to any amend
ment of the Constitution of the "•date
giving to negroes the right of suffrage.
6. That the failure of the Tariff Bill
in the last session of the late Congress,
more than three-fourths of whose mem
bers belonged to the Republican party,
is an illustration of their infidelity to
their pledges and their neglect of their
professions in relation to the great in
dustrial and financial interests of the
7. That the Radical majority in Con
gress, and those who sustain them, have
overthrown the Constitution, dismem
bered the Federal Union and subverted
republican government by a long series
of usurpations, among which are the
Their denial of the right of States of
the Union to representation in Con
Their treatment of ten States as sub
jugated provinces and governing them
by military force in time of peace.
Their enactment of laws denying
indemnity for arrests and false impris
onments made without authority of
Their resistance of the authority of
the civil tribunals,and their overthrow
by the sul>stitution of military com
missions for the trial of undefined of
Their efforts to destroy the executive
and judicial departments of the Govern
ment by threatened impeachment to
control executive action and a projected
"remodelling" of the Supreme Court
of the United States to force obedience
to congressional mandates.
Their ejection Iroin their seats in the
Federal Senate and House, of members
duly and legally chosen.
That the purpose of confiscation avow
ed by the Republican leaders, in viola
tion of the Declaration of Rights and
other guarantees of the Federal and
State Constitutions, tending as it does,
to destroy all protection to private p. o
perty, advances them far on the high
road to repudiation.
8. That a strict conformity, both by
the Federal and State Government, to
all the powers, restrictions and guaran
tees, as contained in the Constitution
of the United States, a right and wise
economy in the administration of pub
i lie affairs, and the election of capable,
honest and patriotic men to office, are
measures absolutely necessary to restore
public confideQMe, avert national bank
ruptcy, and, to ensure the perpetuity of
our free institutions.
9. That the late Republican Legisla
ture of this State has distingushed it
self for the number of its unwise and
Some of these laws have already been
judicially determined to be unconstitu
tional, others are unwise, inexpedient,
oppressive and fanatical, and the mem
bers who sustained them should be con
demned by the people at the polls.
10. That the power and success of
the Democratic party greatly depends
on the character and efficiency of its
newspaper press, and that to give due
force to its usefulness, this Convention
earnestly requests that in every county
all the members of the Democratic par
ty should make a vigorous effort to in
crease its circulation by giving it indi
vidual patronage and support.
11. That the Democracy of Pennsyl
vania, by their representatives now as
sembled, hereby tender their acknowl
edgments and thanks to the Hon. Geo.
W. Woodward in his retirement from
the position of Chief Justice of this Com
monwealth, for the pure faithful and
able manner in which he discharged
the duties of that exalted position.
12. That the candidate we this day
present to the people of Pennsylvania
for a place on the Supreme Bench of the
State, is in all respects worthy of the
confidence and support of all who are
in favor of an enlightened, faithful and
impartial administration of the laws.
The Bangor Democrat publishes an
article upon the above subject, which
does not give so hopeless a view of our
situation as many people insist upon
taking. Throwing out the ten south
ern States, which it is not probable will
be allowed to participate in the election,
the numberof electoral votes will be 247.
These, the Democrat thinks, from pres
ent indications, will be divided as fol
New Hampshire 5 Maine 7
Connecticut 6 Vermont 5
New York 33 Massachusetts 12
New Jersey 7 Rhode Island 4
Pennsylvania 26 Ohio 12
Maryland 7 Illinois 16
Delaware 3 Michigan 8
Kentucky 11 Wisconsin 8
Tennessee 10 lowa 8
Indiana 13 Minnesota 4
Nebraska 3 Kansas 3
Nevada 3 Doubtful.
Oregon 3 West Virginia 5
California 5 Missouri 11
Total 135 Total 112
If the ten excluded States are permit
ted to participate in the election, the
Democrat thinks that "it is altogether
probable that their 70 electoral votes
will be cast solid for the Democratic
nominee, although it is possible,
through the interference of the mili
tary, that the negroes may carry South
Carolina and Louisiana." In that e
vent, the southern vote would stand:
Democratic, 57 ; Republican, 13; and
the total electoral vote would be divid
ed as follows:
For the Democratic candidate 192
For the Republican candidate 125
Democratic majority 67
Commenting upon these figures, the
New York Day-Book says, this is cer
tainly not so hopeless a case. .Men
have no right, in view of these figures,
and they are not unreasonable ones, to
sit down, fold their hands, and cry "all
is lost." If every Democrat would put
his shoulder to the wheel, and work
half as hard to get the Mongrels out of
power as they wo: k to retain it, the
victory would be won. If we should
spend one-half the money in enlighten
ing the people that the Abolitionists
spend in deluding them, their power
would fade away like the mist before
the morning sun. It is inaction, the
deadly stupor in the Democracy, that
precedes death, that alarms us more
than any inherent difficulties in the
way of success. Our enemies are strong,
not in their cause, but only because of
our weakness. They are courageous,
only because we are cowardly. They
are lions, only because we are sheep!—
Let the Democracy recover from their
lethargy, and success is certain. But
how shall they ? We answer, by a true
understanding of the real issues before the
country. Knowledge will beget courage,
courage will instil hope, hope will in
duce work, and by work the worlds
were made. When every Democrat
feels that it is a part of his personal
duty to aid in extricating our country
from its present deplorable position, it
will be so extricated, in spite of all the
Abolitionists from Maine to Mexico.

Frightful and Melancholy Accident at

The performance of the Japanese A
crobats at the Academy of Music, New-

ruptly terminated by a most distress
ing accident. The wonderful little boy
performer, "All Right," who has af
forded so much pleasure, and won such
a lively interest in every city wherein
he has performed, was the victim
of thissad mishap. Oneof thisfe'low's
feats was a flight across the Academy,
from the top of the proscenium to the
middle of the first tier of boxes. This
was preformed upon a stout rope.—
When in the midst of the flight, last
evening, the poor boy lost his hold, and
fell to the floor, a distance of 30 or 40
feet, landing in the middle isle of the
parquette. Of course the performance
was immediately terminated in the
midst of the greatest excitement. "All
Right," was promptly taken up and
conveyed home and Dr. Carnochan and
other surgeons were immediately sum
moned to his aid. He bled profusely
from the nose and mouth, and was in

A YOUNG LADY returning to her
country home, after a sojourn of a few months in
the city, was hardly recognized by her friends.
In place of a coarse, rustic, flushed face, she had
a soft ruby complexion of almost marble smooth
ness, and instead of twenty three she really ap
peared bur. eighteen. Upon inquiry as to the cause
of so great a change, she plainly told them
that she used the CIRCASSIAN BALM, and con
sidered it an invaluable acquisition to any Lady's
toilet. By its use any Lady or Gentleman can im
prove their personal appearance an hundred fold.
It is simple in its combination, as Nature herself
is simple, yet unsurpassed in its efficacy in draw
ing impurities from, also healing, cleansing and
beautifying the skin and complexion. By its di
rect action on the cuticle it draws from it all its
impurities, kindly healing the same, and leaving
the surface as Nature intended it should be, clear,
soft, smooth and beautiful. Price $l, sent by Mail

DR. HCHRNCK'H PULMONIC SYRUP.
Thin great medicine cured Dr. J. 11. Schenck, the
proprietor, of Pulmonary Consumption, when it
had assumed its most formidable aspeot, and when
speedy death appeared to be inevitable. His phy
sicians pronounced his case incurable, when he
commenced the ise of this simple but powerful
remedy. His health was restored in a very short
time, and no return of the disease has been appre
hended, for all the symptoms quickly disappeared,
and his present weight is more than two hundred
Since his recovery, he has devoted his attention
exclusively to the cure of Consumption, and the
diseases which are usually complicated with it,
and the cures effected by his medicines have been
very numerous and truly wonderful. Dr. Schenck
makes professional visits to several of the larger
cities weekly, where he has a large concourse of
patients, and it is truly astonishing to see poor
consumptives that have to be lifted out of their
carriages, and in a few months healthy, robust
persons. Dr. Schenck's PULMONIC SYRUP, SEA
WEED TONIC, and MANDRAKE PILLS, are generally
all required in curing Consumption. Full direc
tions accompany each, so that any one can take
them without seeing Dr. Schenck, but when it is
convenient it is best to see him. He gives advice
free, but for a thorough examination with his Re
spirometer his fee is three dollars.
Please observe, when purchasing, that the two
likenesses of the Doctor, one when in the last stage
of consumption, and the other as he now is, in per
fect health, are on the Government stamp
Sold by all druggists and dealers; price $1 50
