n To Our Friends.. -.-rV.
Tho position of that of editor of a pnlit-
i ical newspaper, is a very trying ono under
tho moi-t favorablo auspicos. Wo find it
particularly so under present circumstan
'cos. Tho Democratic party is divided in
iits choice' iW tho Presidency. Ono por
tion of tho party claim ihat Dau-rlas was
'ragulorly and fairly nominated. Another
jportion deny this, and say that neither
DouL'lnsor Prcckonridco were fairly nom

U 1 III fl Ml ill U U U UilillJi requiring tho snporl of eithor en the ground
yif the re.'jnlarlly of their nominations, and
; hence that all Democrats aro at fu'.' liber-
ty to support eithor without doing vio
Icnco lo his consistency as a party man.
This sooir.s to havo been tho view lalf-n
by tho State Execulivo Committo, ns has
boon already expressed by that body on
two occasions a largo proportion of
whom are Douglas men. .
If tho Democratic party of Pennsylva
nia lias any organization, this Committee
is its head. Wo believe it is tho only or
gan competent to speak fir tho party
and henco wo yield obedienco toil, and
recognize its action as binding.
For tho above reasons wo placed the
names of both tlio candidates at the head
of our paper, without onco intimating our
personal preference for either. Wo pub
lish a paper for tho Democracy of Clearfield
county. Among that Democracy wo know
that each have many warm and ardent
friends, and it is our desire to makcour
paper as acceptable lo tho friends of the
ono as to t hoc of the other.
e hero refer lo these who arc acting
in harmony with tho Execulivo Committee
Thoso whooro in favor of a sraight-out
electoral ticket, either for P.rcckcn ridge
or Douglas, aro in our judgement, aiding
tho Republican Abolitionists much nioro
cll'ec lively, than if they were members of
that parly in full communion. Such men
cannot rccicvoany sympathy ntour bands.
It is not for them that wo place the names
of both candidalcs at our head.
Rut to thoso who rocognizo tho ac
lion of IhoJExcculivo Committee, and arc
willing lo enter Iho contest, not airainsi
Douglas or agni.nst Rreokinridgc but ay
abut Lincoln wo aro icady to make any
sacrifice. No matter how zealously a man
may support his favorite, whether that f.i-
vorito bo oiu! or iho" other, wo ivill be
with bin). But ho must do it in the only
nay in which it will count against the
common loe. Let cvciv Pre. -kinrl.be
man say (and so act) that Douglas is b's
next choico 'if I can't cet Brokeni
giv? mo Douglas,' and let cvo: v' Douglas
man so speak and act towards Prcckin
ridgo, and our parly will bo so perfect!'
and powerfully united against the Repub
lican Abolitionists as ever it Mas.
This is the object of the action of tho
Male Central Committee. If it is adopt
ed m good iMtb, our victory is certain,
and either Douglas or P.reckenvidgo will
bo President. Such will be. tho result of
acting in harmony with tho Democratic
party of tho State. Such Is tho object at
which wo aim, and for which wo aro wil
ling to labor and it is to reflect this pur
poso that vo Acep tho names of
both Rreckcnridgo and Douglas at the
bead of our paper.
i or pursuing this course, wo bear of
frequent complaints. They arc not unex
petted. Tho lircckinridijo men say thai,
as the editors aro for Rreokinridgc, they
should withdraw the namo of Doughn
and support Breckinridge and thus'rclhict
their own sentiment. A little reflection
will, wo think, causo them to change
their minds, and admit that wo aro right,
for tho rc.vons stated above.
On tho other hand, tho Douglas men
say that, tho editors being the friends
of Brockinridgo, will only publish sueli
articles as favorthe prospects of their

sixty Black Republicans of the present

a single exception, registered his volo o
