Tlio Democratic county convention

man on It Is well qualified to fulfil tho
duties of tho ofllco for whlcl) ho is nom

Domocratsof tho county than to tho

Most of tho nominations wcro in ail o

been decided by tho pcoplo at tho ilclo
irato elections, and excepting a llttlo
fiasco near tho closo of tho convention,
tho utmost harmony provnllcd. Strong
and earnest feelings lu favor of a can
didato will sometimu lead men to do
what they will regret in cooler mo
incuts, but it is hoped that at this tlmo
every Democrat will consider tho Inter

other consideration. Thcso Interests

and overy disturber of harmony Is suro

all good neighbors and clover men, all

Somo Inconvonionco having been ex
perienced In working the old plan of
instructing delegates, tho convention,
by a unanimous vote, adopted a new

to nil .future dclegato elections. It is
an important rulo which will extend

Now that tho nominations aro made,
and an excellent tlckot is inscribed upon

success! With union and good will pro

therefore, inculcato union and harmony

With I ho Impudence and greedy char
acteristics of tho race, yunkoa land
claims tho snlo credit or establishing
and driving forward tho causa of popu
lar education. So far ns Pennsylvania
Is concerned this claim lias not tlio least
foundation, Education was pressed by
every government this Stato over had
that of Ponn, tho Colonial revolution
ary authority ond tho State. Our con
stitutions havo always contained a
clauso making popular education obllg
atory. Tho Governors of German
blood, Snvdek, Sciiultze nnd Wolf,
wcro most persistent in urging tno es
tabllshmcnt of public or common
schools. Through tho official and per
sonal influcnco of tho latter tho first
common school law In this Stato was
adopted. It was first materially mi
proved under tho administration of
Gov. lttTNEn, another of tho German
stock. Hon. J ess u Milleu, Stato Su
pcrlntcndcnt under Gov. Skunk, (tho
next succeeding Governor of German
descent) If wo mlstnko not, was tho first
Stato official to urgo tho adoption of tho
County Supcrlntcndoncy. Tho greatest
strldo of all In Improvement was mndo
under tho administration or Gov. mu
Msrt, another Governor of German do
scent. Then tho County Supcrlotcn
dency was established, tho teachers oc.
cupation became a rocogul.cd proles
elon, tho school term was extended, tho
law was rendered thoroughly ofllclont,
tho foundation for Normal Schools was
laid, and such general Improvement
and advancement was mado as was
never effected beforo or since.
It has becomo tho fashion lately for
school orators to Insinuate and even
aver that tho progress of 1831 was pat.
tcrned after or suggested by Now Eng.
land examples. Instead of this being
true, wo happen to know nnd can tcs
tlfy that all New England examples
and Ideas wcro careruliy excluded anil
avoided, anil our Wcstorn, Canadian
and European systems nlono wore re
gardedbut practically and substan.
tlallyour own experience, thoclmrao
tor and wants of our people, nnd tho
other conditions then existing In our
midst, controlled tho wholo subject nnd
established tho progress of that day.
Tho editor of tho Columbian has ncv
cr been very particular about thunder
orthat sort, nnd therefore hns never
vindicated tho authors of tho act of 1SJ1
when others appropriated tho credit
duo to them, but somo times this joke
Is carried rather far. Iteccntly an ora
tor (In Northampton county, wo bo
Hove) declared with ailourish of trump
ets, and In his presence, wo Inferred,
that to Prof. J. P. Wickersiiam be
longed more credit than to nny other
man, living or dead, for tho successful
establishment and progress of Common
Schools in this Stato. Now, tho Pro-
fessorisa gentleman to whom wo ac
cord high honor ; a successful teacher,
ono or tho most efficient or County Su
perintendents, under whom and by
whom tho first Stato Normal School In
this Commonwealth was established,
and who has mado a crcdltablo Stato
Superintendent, efficiently executing
tho laws and plans heretofore establish
ed by others. That much Is his duo.
Wo aro not objecting to any amount of
honor being piled upon his head, even
though it should pierce tho heavens,
but wo do object to tlio ignoring of men
who havo deserved well or their coun
try and to tlio honors belonging to them
being piled upon tho heads or others tn
whom thoy do not belong.
Wo beliovo that wo havo tho most ef
ficlent public school system in Pennsyl
vania that exists in America, nnd to
our Govcrnorsof German blood belongs
tho credit or establishing It.
A Itadical Muss.
Everybody at nil concerned In tho

keenly the pcoplo havo been oppressed
by the tyrannical decisions or tho Com

always decided in such manner as would
tako tho largest sum rrom the pocket of
tho tax-pnycr, and tho moro of this ho
could put Into tho pockets of his subor

ter ho seemed to llko it. In fact tho
jJtovcnuo ofllco at Washington was
mado a perfect instrument or robbery
and plunder a leech that careruliy es
timated tho amount or blood his victim
contained and then sucked to tho last
drop and squeezed his carcass after
wards. By tho promotion or Delano
to a cabinet position tho ofllco was va
cated, and by a fortunato incident tho
President appointed Gen, Pleahanton,
one of his military friends, to tho posi
tion, who possessed somo or tho old
military prldo of honor. Tho public
wcro soon surprised by a series or sen
siblo decisions, tho first eminatlng rrom

and tho first that were so plain that
they could bo generally understood.

Tho IVcsliuorclniiil Senatorial District.
Tho Democracy of tho Senatorial tils,
trie t, composed of tho counties of West
morelitnd nnd Indiana havo unanl
mously nominated Hon. J Aeon Tun
nky for thu Stato Senate. Mr. T. here
tofore sorved ono term, with great
credit to himself and ndvantngo to tho
pcoplo of tho Stato. As chairman of
tho Flnanco commltteo of that body ho
saved thousands of dollars to tho peo
pic. os wo know from personal knowl
edge, and In other ways ho was always
vigilant and clllclcnt in prelecting tho
Treasury from tho robbers who nnmi
ally collect nbout tho Legislature. A
caso In point: wo saw Tuiinev on tho
floor of tho Scnalo making a speech
against nn unconditional nnd preclpl
tnto repeal or tho Canal board, after tho
public works had been sold. Whllo on
tho floor, Judge Strickland, ono of
tho board, Informed him that his col
leagues were about passing n resolution
to allow a fraudulent claim or $5,000 to
Alex. White, brother or Mr. Tun
ney'h present competitor. Mr. T. nt
onco stated tlio fact to tho Scnato, with
drew his opposition to tho repealing
hill and In hair an hour it was signed
by Gov. Packer nnd was a law. Tho
robbery nover was consummated. But
this is only ouolnslaiico amongst ninny
that ho throttled tho plunderers within
our own observation.
Mr. Turney was elected Speaker of
tho Scnato at a tlmo when It was sup
posed Gov. Packer's death wns mo-
mentarily probable Although that
melancholy contingency did not hap
pen, tho circumstance abundantly
proves tho conildcnco tho Democratic
Senators felt In tho ability anil Integrl
ty of Mr. Turney. His term expired
In 1SC0, nnd wo beliovo ho has never
been in Harrisburg sinco, n most extra
ordinary and honorable circumstance,
showing ho had no scores to scttlo up.
A feature of this nomination wo
would commend to our friends every
where. Both of tho counties of the
district presented candidates. Tho ills
trlct has a Republican majority. Tho
nominees of tho respective counties
wcro withdrawn without n ballot In
order to permit tho strongest man In
tho district to bo nominated, upon
whom tho nomination was then confer
red without a ballot. A man of the
highest fitness and Integrity wns thus
selected.. May tho example provo n
Although tho district is Republican
wo havo strong hopes of Mr. Turkey's
election 1 Tho high personal esteem In
which ho is Justly held throughout the
State, his tried lutcgrity and acknowl
edged fitness ought to elect him any
whero, and when poised against Har
ry White, notorious for his connec
tions with legislative rings, there ought
scarcely to be a question in n district

Stanton's Military Itcconl.
The Democratic papers havo tried In
vain to drlvo (ho Radical leaders Into
giving tho military history of Dr.
Stanton. Where did ho render ser
vlco of nny character ? Was ho ever
on a field or battle, over In care of
wounded, or oven in charge or an as
sistant at a military hospital? Is it
truo that ho was only a contract sur
geon a medical Suttler? In short,
Ii03 ho a military history at all ? If bo
has why don't his friends give tho pub
lic tho benefit or it? Certainly when
men nro put forward on Military
grounds tho public ought to bo inform
ed or all tho particulars or their servico.
tY o do not know that a Sultlcr, especially
ii medical Sutler, has nny special claim
upon tho gratltudo or tho country. If
Stanton was any thing else, why is
his history not given? Perhaps that
Is truo which wo havo all along re
garded ns a slander, viz : that ho was a
mero lo.ifer about northern cities,
drawing tho pay or a Colonel, but per
forming no duties. In tho absenco of n
history or his acts, tho suspicion Is
strong that this charge Is true.
As to Heath, all that tho public
know of him Is that ho was a Lieuten
ant or a company of darkles and Is now
In tho employ of tho coal operators. He
does not seem to havo won distinction
In either position, ns no record of his
exploits is given to tho public.
Tho Democrats long ago gavo n .full

Kentucky, Tho Democrats have
cloctcd their Governor and Stato ticket
by about 110,000 majority, and nearly all
tho members of tho Legislature. Two
years ago their majority was 70,000.
Thodecrcaso In majority Is owing to
tho fact that at this election tho negroes
wore allowed to voto for tho first tlmo.

and not diminished, hut tlio Radical

whether n-convention should bo called
to alter tho Stato Constitution, with n
view to reforms looking to the ro-estab-llshmrnt
of tho power of tho pcoplo
over tholr own domestic offalrs. Of
courso tho Radicals opposed It. Tho
Federal government threatened armed
Interference should tho convention car
ry. Under theso circumstances, many
Democrats also opposod tho conven
tion. Tho result is in doubt.
Massachusetts. In this rotten old
Stato, Ben. Butler Is creating qulto
a muss by an attempt to obtain tho
Radical nomination for Governor and
yet threatening to run whether ho Is
nominated or not. Tho fight between
Bon, and tho Codfish aristocracy is bo
coming very bitter. Massachusetts
loves meanness, and It Is therefore dir
ficult to tell who will win.
