SCOTTSVILLE, July 21, 1860.
W3l. Lr.wrs, Esq.—Our town would be
quite dull through harvest, were it not for
the frequent visits we receive from the office
seekers of the Opposition ranks. There ap
pears to he a perfect little army of them.—
And they all appear to be very clever fellows.
But its fashionable for them to be friendly
until after the election.
We have but one man in this township who
endorses the action of the Seceders. He for
merly belonged to the Opposition. The De
mocracy are all enthusiastic for the regular
nominees of the party. They say that the
"Vermont Cabinet Maker of 1831, shall be the
TVash inglonCabinet Maker in 1861." We want
nothing more than a pure Douglas and John
son Electoral Ticket put before the people,
and there will be enough of men found in the
State who are opposed to Black Republican
ism and Sectionalism, to elect it.
The Rail making company of our township
has suspended operations. The cause of the
explosion of the concern, I believe, was for
want of timber. At first when they com
menced business, they thought they were go
ing to have easy timber to work; but they
have found out that the " Old - Hickory" tim
ber of little Clay cannot be split, and worked
up with the soft wedge of Abolitionism.

fourth of a mile of this place by the United
Brethren denomination. commencing the

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., July 20.—Senator
Douglas arrived here at noon to-day, and was
received by a crowd of at least nine thousand
persons, which manifested much enthusiasm
in the use of gunpowder, music and applause.
Senator Douglas spoke from the balcony of
the 111.assaert House to the assembled multi
tude, and was frequently interrupted with
cheers. He will dine here in company with
a large number of our prominent citizens.

At the Brecdinridge ratification meet
ing last Monday week at Washington, 1,200
clerks, attached to the departments, marched
in procession. A wag carried a transpa

tCr- It has been determined at head-quar
ters to run a Breckinride Electoral Ticket in
every State in the Union, and to show no
quarter to Douglas or his supporters.
It being understood at Washingotn
that the Bra:kJ:l64;e National Committee
have an abundance of money, they are over
whelmed by applications for material aid by
the poor partisan papers of the North.
The collectors of the prominent ports
throughout the country are obeying the pro
scriptive orders of the President regarding
Douglas office-holders. Many of them have
already reported to headquarters certain re
movals - which they have made.
The Trenton Gazelle compares the po
litical complexion of the press in New Jersey
with that exhibited during the Fremont cam
paign. In 1856 fourteen journals supported
Fremont, six Fillmore, and fourteen Buchan
an. Now thirty-three advocate the election
of Mr. Lincoln, two that of Mr. Bell, fifteen
that of Mr. Douglas, and five that of Mr.
Unmitigable Sorrow.
"Tho melancholy days have come."
" Quist thou not minister to a mind - diseased ?"
"If you have tears, prepare to shed them now."
The grief evinced by those who have un
dertaken the disreputable task of disorgan
izing and demoralizing the Democratic party
at their want of success in carrying out the
plan of a Union Electoral Ticket in this State,
is apparently so v ikirmant that we can not
avoid being to.ucNel at it, albeit, as honest
Democrats, fir. afford no relief. Had
they kept their t . n solid ground, and their
eyes fixed on the: of principle, their path
would have been smooth and their journey,
like ours, plea:lnt. They knew, or ought to
have known, that " the way of the transgres
sor is bard," and they should not have fallen
into it. But as it has been the case from the
creation of man to the present age that the
wicked and perverse will be governed neither
by counsel nor by signs ; and this being the
case with the disorganizing faction that have
rallied around the Rebel flag of Breckinridge,
they have finally gotten themselves neck deep
in the slough of despond, from whence their
piteous cries ascend in vain. .4s they have
sowed, so will they reap—their harvest will
be regret, anguish, remorse, heightened by
the reflection that they have brought all upon
themselves by 'recklessly pursuing a course
pointed out to them by evil-minded men who
have, for years past, been plotting the over
throw of the Democratic party and the sub
version of the Union. •
There is not a single press in Pennsylva
nia that flies the ensign of Breckinridge and
Lane—there is not a tongue that proclaims ad
hesion to their cause, that can assign a sound
reason, based upon Democratic or patriotic
principles, for doing so. The course they are
pursuing is demoralizing, disorganizing, in
violation of usage, principle, justice, and hon
or. The proposition of compromise, coming
from them, is more than a tacit acknowledge
ment that they are wrong, and understand
thoroughly the untenableness of the position
they occupy. If they are right, we are clear
ly in error ; if their assumptions are true,
ours are false—and in what system of ethics
can they find it laid down that right may
compromise with wrong, or truth with false
hood ? The fact is, they feel the weight of
the responsibility which they have taken
upon themselves too oppressive to be borne
alone, and having already sacrificed almost
everything that honorable men hold dear,
they are willing to sacrifice a little more in
order to shift a part of the burden from their
shoulders to ours. They feel that they have
degraded themselves, violated their party fe
alty, and sunk their manhood by becoming
the mere passive tools of a reckless and cor
rupt faction of politicians who aim at the de
struction of our common country. To look
upon men placed in so forlorn a condition
awakens no pleasurable emotions in the
heart. We pity, but can not relieve them.—
We are in the way of the faithful, and dare
not desert it to hold converse or treaty with
sinners who have rebelled and sinned " against
light and against knowledge." We can not
accept the compromise they have offered, be
cause, on our part, we have nothing to com
promise—our skirts are clean, and we must
keep them so, which we could not do were
we, by accepting their terms, to associate po
litically with a band of rebellious disorgan
izers who have declared their independence
of Democratic usages, and combined with
Federalists, Disunionists, and Traitors to
make war upon the Party and the Union.—
We are as much afraid to burthen our con
sciences with so much guilt, as an honest
Christian would be to play " blind man's
buff" with the devil.
No, we can not extend a helping hand.—
'We must leave them where they are, to strug
gle, and sweat, and groan—to come out of
the quagmire unaided, if they came at all,
and if not, to sink into congenial filth " un
washed, unkempt," the political lepers of
