Tile Tlilrcl Term.
Euitoiis Colummah :
Futo is written over tho third term. Let
all politicians and ofllcc-scckcrs beware,
and take warning from this oft-repeated
rebuke. Whenever any official has served
his tenure with credit to himself, nnd satis
faction to the people whom they delighted
to honor then let him willingly step to
one sldo and leave the field for another,
not moro worthy or deserving, perhaps,
but according to party custom and rule,
and good will to all concerned. No ono
man has ever captured tho sovereign will
of the people of any free nnd enlightened
country, or any part o f it however small,
and never will. Hence nil ambitious men
can save themselves the humiliating ex
perience of being finally rejected, and
thrust to one side by tho people or party
whom they aro led to regard as tho ser
vants, nnd not the masters, of the sltua
atlon. Let them uot bo mistaken of this
ono fact, viz s a person, however influen
tial, or however many friends, a llttlo im
prudence now and then, and a llttlo over
done exertion iu a cause not well taken
nor approved by the masses, soon renders
himself obnoxious, and sooner or later dis
covers that patio nee with the people ecus
eth to be a virtue. Y.
Tho camp-tlro wo mentioned in last

dish. If Uncle Sam provided as good a

I don't supposo that public feeling over
ran so high at a delegate election as It did
on Saturday last. Thcro was scarcely any
work done In the township, and long be
fore the time for organizing the meeting
nearly every voter In tho township was on
hand. Votes were challongcd without re
gard to Individuals, aud all sorts of mcth.
ods used to gain votes.
Tho result of tbo voto shows that tho
pcoplo of Columbia county do not iuteud
to let money and whiskey rule tho elec
Hons in the future.
