WEST TOWNSHIP, July 2d, 1860
Eorron OF THE GLOBE :—West township in
this county, contains about 39 square miles,
and had a population in 1850 of 1464, fami
lies 272, dwellings 208, and 112 farms, value
of real estate $531,794, personal estate $33,-
636. Since that time Oneida township has
been mode out of parts of West and Hender
son, the greater part off West. Now, 1860,
West township has a population of 1335, fam
ilies 237, dwellings 237, and 98 farms, value
of real estate $545,140, personal estate $106,-
950 ; this was the wealthiest township in the
county in ISSO, and from present appearances
I think will be so in 1860.
The oldest persons I met in the township
were Mrs. Lightner and Mrs. Maffit who are
ST each. David Ewing is stud to be SS. Da
vid looks as if he had enjoyed many a drop
of Massey in his time.
The best fitted up farm and residence that
I visited was river Benjamin Neff's. Ben
has been married lately and he now seems to
enjoy himself most by staying at home and
showing other people how to live. The most
perfect gentlemen are David Barrick and
John Rung. There is a host of other very
clever men in this township, such as Robert
Johnston, Miles Lewis, John Gregory, Sam'l
Stryker, Geo. Wilson, John Eberly, William
McClure, James Stewart, James McGuire,
Jonathan Wilson, Henry Davis, Robert Wil
son, Jacob Porter and Thomas Hamer. Tom's
jolly laugh is enough to do a man good at
any time. If our Sheriff and County Com
missioners such men for Jurors,
4 1 14 the non. Geo. Taylor to preside, we
would have very little business for the Su-
preme Court.
The most laborious hard working man I have
seen is Benjamin Hatiman. Ben appears to
work for the pledsure of working, for he has
plenty of means to hire others to assist him
if he thought it necessary. The best speci
men of a Pennsylvania farmer I met was
John Schoell—his honest face would pass him
in any crowd. John is the only man in the
toWnship that keeps a regular farm hook,-,-
The man of the most wealth in the township
is Major William Moore. But for real gen
uine hospitality give me Mr. and Mrs. Robert
Moore; here you meet society as it was five
and twenty years ago; no new fashioned
napes or costumes with them ; they make
you welcome in their house and will share
with you at their table the best they have got.
I am sorry to see that they are getting old ;
when gone it will be hard to replace them.—
I cannot leave this township without making
a remark about the Neff family,—they are
all the descendants of John and Jacob Neff
who came into this county from Lancaster
county, some seventy years ago, and they
have spread over three or four townships, and
find them where you will, it is never on a slate
hill or a gravel bank. They all have a pecu
liar knack of acquiring lime stone land, and it
must be either that or none. Should they
continue to increase in the same ratio for the
next half century they will be one of the most
numerous families in the county.
I ant 'now in Old Barree township, this is
the township that it is said nearly every per
son over twenty years of age can read and
write ; the drovers and pedlers say they are
the sharpest dealers in the county. G.
SHAVERS CREEK, June 27, 1860
MR. EDITOR :—The day is approaching
when the heavens and earth shall pass away.
Then fighting shall cease. The righteous
will dwell in the kingdom of the Lord there
in sweet unity. I was induced to utter forth
the above, a few days ago, when recording
another "squabble" with the many of our
village. As the poet sings :
"Dissension, like small streams, at first begun,
Scarce seen, they rise and gather as they run."
So I thought; and so you would have thought,
Mr. Editor, if you had beheld the scene.
'Tis bad enough when man becomes so bar
barous as to battle against his fellow-men and
woman against her neighboring woman, but
when a .:,an and another man's wife quarrel
on the street before public, I exclaim horror
of horrors. Shakespeare says—
"The man who'lays his hand upon a woman,
Save in the way of kindness, is a wretch,
Whom 'twere gross flattery to call a coward."
But in some cases the feminines are to blame.
L. Carroll Judson on a certain occasion wrote
the following :—" Among neighbor's mere
trifling differences sometimes amount to tedi
ous and expensive lawsuits." Is it not the
case ? lle further wrote : " The intrusion of
a pig, the killing of a chicken, the picking of
a little fruit"—to which I add—the whipping
of a child, the cleaning of a drain, the lan
guage you use, "often engender lasting hate."
But ere the finishing of this subject, I could
say truly, once again our village is tranquil.
So we let it rest.
Last Saturday being a day among the beau
tiful I concluded to take a pleasure trip to
the Big Lick Woods. After making the
necessary preparations, I mounted the Lady
Lightfoot of our village, which is a splendid
nag and can go it 2.40, and set out for the
land of the living. It being a short distance
of 13 miles I arrived in some minutes and a
few seconds, and was highly delighted to find
those fields that were covered with mullen
stalks and pennyroyal at one time, producing
grain in abundance and fine in appearance.
In fact everything appeared promising. The
acres of meadow that turned out great quan
tities of sheep sorrel and tons of nothing last
season, will produce greater quantities of fine
grass this season. 'Tis a fine, thing farm
ers have awoke from their slumbers and
solved the great problem termed the best way
of tilling the land. In asking a farmer what
caused such a great change on * his farm, I
received the following answer : " Finding the
sluggard never became wealthy, I concluded
to be awake when I once slept. Now I arise
with that, (pointing to the sun) unlock my
sensibities and go at it, (meaning the work)
thinking 'Root hog, or die." I have no
doubt but what he does. After spending the
greater part of the day, I returned home,
and on my way fell in with my old friend and
fellow teacher 11lr. Solomon Silknitter. He
informed me it was his intention of announc
ing himself as a candidate for Register and
Recorder. Sol is a good, clever fellow, an
excellent citizen and faithful to his party.—
He is in every respect qualified for the office,
and if elected, will render satisfaction.
SCOTTSVILLE, June, 23d, 1860
MR. LEWIS :—You stated sometime since,
in you paper, that you would be pleased to
have the news from the different townships
throughout the county. I will give you a
brief sketch of the most important things,
that are taking place in little Clay.
Our farmers are expecting an abundant
crop of grain, fruit, &c. They think, with
good crops and the " Little Giant" for our
next President, times will certainly be better.
The "Bailers" are holding a series of re
vivals, in our public school houses, each even
ing after an affecting discourse from the
" Squire," (who says, " the Democrats have
all left him," occasionally interrupted by
Richard, with such as, " Old Buck has 1500
niggers on hand, &c." They then give an
invitation for all anxious persons to come for
ward and join their Abolition Club. But
there are few who join with them. The peo
ple say they can't march to the tune of Lin
con and Abolitionism.
There is a portion of our school directors
in quite a " fix" about the money tendered
to this township by Mr. Africa, for the use
of our Common Schools. One of the directors
told the treasurer, to not lift the money until
he received further orders. (This director,
mind, belongs to these " Railers") I sup
pose the old gentleman thinks, if they would
take the money, perhaps it would make Mr.
Africa a few more votes in this township
next- fall, should he be a candidate for of
fice. Come old man, lay your political preju
dice aside, and go in for the good of the tax
payers of your township, what we elected
you for. Remember, every little helps.
I will give you a history of Mr. Ashman's
modle barn, as soon as it is completed. So
far, it excels anything in this end of the coun
ty. Ever Yours, •
—ln order to facilitate the prepayment of
postage on letters addressed to foreign coun
tries, and to avoid the necessity of affixing
thereto a large number of stamps, which
would in some instances increase the weight
so as to subject the letters to additional post
age, the Department has ordered the issuing
of new stamps of the denomination of 24, 30,
and 90 cents respectively. The 24 cent stamps
will be ready for distribution this week, the
30 cent stamps soon thereafter, and the 90
cent stamps as soon as they can be procured.

Douglas' Letter of Acceptance.
WASI7IIVGTON, June 27, 1860.
GENTLEMEN: In accordance with the ver
bal assurance which I gave you when you
placed in my hands the authentic evidence of
my nomination for the Presidency by the
National Convention of the Democratic party,
I now send you my formal acceptance.
Upon a careful examination of the platform
of principles adopted at Charleston, and reaf
firmed at Baltimore, with an additional reso
lution which is in perfect harmony with the
others, I find it to be a faithful embodiment
of the.time-honored principles of the Demo
cratic party, as the same were proclaimed,
and understood by all parties in the Presiden
tial contests of 1848, '52, and '56.
Upon looking into the proceedings of the
Convention also, I find that the nomination
was made with great unanmity, in the pres
ence and with the concurrence of more than
two-thirds of the whole number of delegates,
and in exact accordance with the long-estab
lished usages of the party. My inflexible
purpose not to be a candidate nor accept the
nomination in any contingency, except as the
regular nominee of the National Democratic
party, and in that case only upon condition
that the usages as well as the principles of
the party should be strictly adhered to, had
been proclaimed for a long time, and became
well known to the country.
These conditions having all been complied
with by the free and voluntary action of the
Democratic mases and their faithful represen
tatives ; without any agency, intefrerence, or
procurement on my part, I feel bounb in hon
or and duty to accept the nomination.
In taking this step I am not unmindful of
the responsibilities it imposes ; but, with a
firm reliance on Divine Providence, I have
faith that the people will comprehend the true
nature of the issues involved, and eventually
maintain the right. The peace of the coun
try and safety of the Union have been put in
jeopardy by attempts to interfere with and
control the domestic affairs of the people in
Territories through the agency of the Federal
If the power and duty of Federal interfe
rence be conceded, two hostile sectional par
ties must be the inevitable result—the one
inflaming the passions and ambition of the
North, and the other of the South—each
struggling to use the Federal power and au
thority for the aggrandizement of its own sec
tion at the expense of the equal rights of the
other, and in derogation of those fundamen
tal principles of self-government which were
firmly established in this country by the
American Revolution as the basis of our en
tire republican system. During the memora
ble period of our political history, when the
advocates of Federal intervention upon the
subject of slavery in the Territories had well
nigh" precipitated the country into revolu
tion"--=the Northern interventionists demand
ing the Wilmot Proviso for the prohibition
of slavery, and the Southern interventionists
(then few in number and without a single
representative in either House of Congress)
insisting upon Congressional legislation for
the protection of slavery in opposition to the
wishes of the people, in either case—it will
be remembered that it required all the wis
dom, power, and influence of a Clay, and a
Webster, and a Cass, supported by the con
servative and patriotic men of the Whig and
Democratic parties of that day, to devise and
carry out a line of policy which would restore
peace to the country, and stability to the
Union. The essential living principle of that
policy, as applied in the legislation of 1.850,
was, and now is, non-intervention by Con
gress with slavery in the Territories.
The fair application of this just and equi
table principle restored harmony and. fra
ternity to a distracted country.
If we now depart from that wise and just
policy, which produced these happy results,
and permit the country to be again distracted,
if not precipitated into a revolution by a sec
tional contest between pro-slavery and anti
slavery interventionists, where shall we look
for another Clay, another Webster, or anoth
er Cass, to pilot the ship of State over the
breakers into a haven of peace and safety?
The Federal Union must be preserved.—
.The Constitution must be maintained invio
late in all its parts. Every right guarantied
by the Constitution must be protected by law
in all cases where legislation is necessary to
its enforcement, The judicial authority, as
provided in the Constitution, must be sustain
ed, and its decisions implicitly obeyed and
faithfully executed. The laws must be ad
ministered, and the constituted authorities
upheld, and all unlawful resistances suppress
ed. These things must all be done with
firmness. impartiality, and fidelity, if we ex
pect to enjoy and transmit unimpaired to
our posterity that blessed inheritance which
we have received in trust from the patriots
and sages of the Revolution.
With sincere thanks for the kind and agree
able manner in which you have made known
to me the action of the Convention.
I have the honor to be,
Very respectfully,
Your friend and fellow-citizen,
To Hon. Wm. 11. Ludlow, of New York ; R.
P. Dick, of North Carolina ; and others of
the Committee.
Dawson Endorses Douglas.
Hon. John L. Dawson, who was a consis
tent opponent of Judge Douglas, after his
nomination was announced, endorsed it in the
follow;ug spirited manner:
Hon. John L. Dawson, of Pennsylvania,
arose amid loud calls and cheering :
Mr. President and gentlemen of the the
Convention—lt is scarcely necessary for me
to say, that at no time during the sitting of
this body did Judge Douglas receive the uni
ted vote of the delegation from Pennsylvania,
and I may further add, that in the considera
tion of the platform, a majority of us united
with our Southern friends ready to give them
all we believe them entitled to under the Fed
eral Constitution. In our judgment they
asked for nothing more, and we were not
willing to offer them less ; in our action we
have been overruled by a decided majority of
this body. And for Pennsylvania, lam free
to say, that attached there as we are to the
Democratic party, its principles, its discipline,
its organization—:standing there forever, in
the eloquent language of the President of the
Convention in his opening speech at Charles
ton, "Standing as perpetual sentinels upon
the outposts of the Constitution." I trust we
will abide its decisions and support its nomi
nees- [Cheers and applause.]
Judge Douglas is a man of acknowledged
talent and everywhere regarded as the accom
plished statesman, skilled in the art of ruling.
Born under a New England sun, yet, by adop
tion, a citizen of the West, honored alike in
the valley of the Ohio and on the slopes of the
Atlantic, he-now belongs to the whole coun-
try. [Applause.] Untrained to some extent
in early life in the learning of the schools,
the deficiency, if any exists, has been largely
compensated by the. generous measure in
which nature has dealt upon him her choicest
gifts of intellect and character, [Applause.]
Like Henry of the Revolution, -like Peel of
England, , those noble qualities have made
him the, architect of his own fortune. [A_,p
plause.] That the Union is a confederacy
endowed with special power, the States com
posing it retaining all the undelegated attri
butes of sovereignty, is the fundamental . truth
Of our political systam. In defense of this
truth we are about to engage in a new con
test, and in the comprehension of its true
character, we have thoroughly to educate the
public mind. The popular heart is to be won
back to loyalty by holding up to its contem
plation the image of the Constitution in its
severe beauty of lineament and proportion.
The erring conclusions of our fellow-citi
zens of all sections are to be corrected by a
thorough and persevering exposition of their
fallacy, and in place of these are to be incul
cated the paramount claims of the federal
compact to the hearty allegiance in letter and
spirit of every American who can comprehend
and appreciate the institutions of his country,
and who really cherishes a desire for their
perpetuity. [Applause.]
It' here, in this beautiful city, which looks
out upon the Chesapeake, any incitement
could have been needed to a broad patriotism
in our deliberations, it should have been found
in the associations in the midst of which we
are assembled ; for it was at Annapolis, at
the close or the Revolution that Washington
resigned his commission. It is also within
sight of the spot at which we are convened
that imposing monuments rise to the great
ness of his memory and to the patriotism of
the sons of Maryland. [Applause.]
Pennsylvania, the State in which indepen
dance was first proclaimed, and the work of
the revolution secured by the construction of
the federal compact ; the State which holds
within her bosom, the ashes of Franklin and
boast the first battle-field of Washington, will
be true to her noble memories, [cheers.] and
and in the fullness of that enlightened con
servative sentiment, for which she has been
distinguished, will rally, I trust, in giant
strength, cast the dust from her eyes, and aid
the friends of the Democratic party once more
to elect their nominee. [Loud cheers and
The Douglas and Lino°ln Debate
The debate in the Illinois campaign of 1858,
between Judge Douglas and Mr. Lincoln,
was published some time ago, by a firm of
Columbus, Ohio, at the instance of the Re
publican Executive Committee of that State,
and since Mr. Lincoln's nomination this pub
lication is extensively circulated, and quoted
as an evidence of his superior powers as a lo
gician and orator. The matter for this pub
lication was furnished by Mr. Lincoln, he
having first revised and corrected his speeches,
but without extending that priviledge to Mr.
Douglas. The attention of the latter having
been directed to this unfair proceeding, he
has written a letter to the publishers, in
which he p,rotests against the alterations and
mutilations in the reports of his speeches.—
After stating that the reports as originally
published in the Chicago Times- were neces
sarily imperfect, and in some respects errone
ous, on account of the haste with which they
were prepared, Mr. Douglas concludes as fol
lows :
• "In short, I regard your publication as
partial and unfair, and designed to do me
injustice by placing me in a false position. I
saw in the preface to the first edition of your
publication, which is omitted in the copy sent
to me, a correspondence between Mr. Lincoln
and the Ohio Republican Committee, from
which it appears that Mr. Lincoln furnished
his speeches and mine for publication-his
in the revised and corrected form, and mine
as they came from the hands of the reporter,
without revision. Being thus notified that
his speeches had been revised and corrected,
this fact ought to have reminded you that
common fairness and justice required that I
should have an opportuniy of revising and
correcting mine. But to deny me that privil
ege, and then to change and mutilate the re
ports as they appeared in the newspaper from
which they were taken, is an act of injustice
against which I must be permitted to enter
my protest. In order that the injustice which
yon have done me may be in some degree
diminished, I respectfully request that this
letter together with the correspondence be
tween Mr. Lincoln and the Committee, which
led to the publication, may be inserted as a
preface to all future editions of these debates."
As this report, with all its errors and mis
representations, will be used by the Republi
cans as standard authority during the cam
paign, it is right that the public should be
aware of the fact that it was dressed up by
Mr. Lincoln so as to strengthen his arguments,
and that it is repudiated entirely by Mr. Doug
WRONG Box,..—The editor of the 4ugusta(Ga)
Constitutionalist has written to his journal,
from Baltimore, as follows :
"There was rather• a 'perplexing predica
ment'on Tuesday night, caused by the appear
ance of Mr. Gilmer, of Pennsylvania, into
the room of the Georgia National delegation.
Mr. Gilmer thought he had got into the room
occupied by the Georgia Seceders, and, after
introducing himself, said he had called on the
delegation to inform them of what he had
heard. He said that the bogus delegates from
Louisiana, Alabama, and Georgia would he
recommended for admission into the Conven
tion, and he leas trying to get some of the
Pennsylvania delegates to secede, if these bo
gus delegates were admitted. He said this
was the policy recommended by the _Adminis
tration, and he thought other delegates could
be induced to pursue the same policy, as
Douglas must be headed of by some means or
other. About this time, Mr. Gilmer was ask
ed if he knew where he was, and what dele
gation from Georgia he was among. Ile
seemed amazed, but adroitly waived the
point and soon retired. The Nationals had
a good laugh at Gilmer's expense. A some
what analogous case occurred with this wri
ter the evening before. He got into the
room of the Wood delegation, when he thought
he was in the room occupied by the Nationals
from New York. He , tasted the grape, 'so
profusely offered, talked about National
Democracy, and did not find out his mistake
until one of the delegates told him that How
ard Cobb had arrived, and would soon be up
in their room to consult as to the best policy
to head off Douglas."
Against the degenerate remnants of all the
political parties who have lifted, their voices
in the past—
"To madden for a moment and tye 7 . , :. 0 =2 1 1r,(4.'
and who have now in all their hypocrisy and
hollow pretension for the rilihts of the slave
banded together under the name of l';.tepubli
can, to mislead the people and get the spoils
of oliS c ce
.; against the Piro-eaters and Section
alists of the North and South, the gallant
Douglas, bold, brave and true, leads the van.
Ile, the rebuker of Presidents, he, the con
temner of Senates, he, the hero of a hundred
battles, starts forth at last our leader, our
champion, our candidate! Knowing no North,
knowing no South, knowing no East, know
ing no West, but acknowledging and recog
nizing the Union, one and inseparable—now
and forever, he bears the banner of the fre.e
aloft and marches on, and the people who
love a brave mart and a great hero will follow.
