The Meeting at Curwensville.
A meeting called by some ninety signprs
rejircsentiug tliemMslves ai- Democrats, v. as
to be held at Curwensville last evenin g,
for tho purpose of "spitting upon and re
j.udutting" tho St. Mary's platform.
Among the signers to this call, we rcc
ognixo the names of Beveral who have
hurotoforo been recognized as entirely
consistent in their adherence to tho usu
jr,os of the Democratic party, and, with
out knowing the facts, wo venture to say
ihayt thoir names were obtained through
misrepresentation of some sortorothor.
The instigators of this movement may
.probably bo sincere in thoir motives. 1 1
umy be that it was not intended as a means
of securing the defeat of certain Demo
cratic candidates. If so, they can easily
.satisfy the public of this (act Ly at once ac
ijuicsoUf iii the action of the Assembled Iennc
racy of the cwhYjt m tikit pltct lutt evening.
Tho professod object oi tho meeting at
Curweosville, is to repudiate certain of
the resolutions adopted at tho recent leg
islaliveconfercDOO at-St. Hary's. That
ihey are susceptible to objection, we have
heretofore admitted. But wo submit to
those at the head of this movement i
ivhethor it would not have been wiser to
have waited until it was ascertained
whether those fotitimouU were assented
o by the Democracy of this or any other
of tho counties composing the district ?
or whether, if they would priserve (lie
harmony of tho Democratic party, they
should not have applied to the Chairman
of the Countv Committee and made
Joinial call of the Democratic jmrly of the
countv? Their fuilure to do cither of'
these thiui-s. and their callini! a meet-
ing In tlie manner tlicy did, is entirely
irregular and disorganizing.
As to tho St, Mary's resolutions, we care
lut littlo about them. The delegates
wero sent there to nominate candidates
not to make platforms. State and Nation
al Conventions do this. And nobody is
bound, in any degree, to the expressed will
of ten or a dozen gentlemen attending a
district convention. If the people enter
tain any doubts as to tho sentiments or
opinions of the candidates, it is to them
that application should be made ; or t0!;.,g tho symbol of our nationality, so
tho counties presenting them. And how
is it witk Dr. Early and Maj. Nicholson ?
Docs any 0110 duult tho loyalty or patri
otism of either f They cannot that of the
latter, as he is now in the servico him
self nnd has also n son a were lad
in Capt. Brady's company of Brookvillo,
now quartered in tho same encampment
with the brave volunteers from this coun
ty. This should place him beyond
reach of suspicion. As to Dr. Early, he
was present at the great out-pouring of
tho Democracy of Clearfield in this place
last night and unqualifiedly endorsed the
proceedings therein cxprcrscd.
We deeply regret this movement ut
this time not that ive apprehend any to"
rious consoquonccs in a political point of:
vii iv ; but bocauso this is a time, above ull
other, when Democrats should net in

They also know that if the power had re

coming up three miles distant nnd turned
it back towards Gauley bridge, which
place it reached in safety.

severely. They parliculai ly were in the
hottest of the tight, and finally fought
their tvav llirniijil. r-i-ul odds, making
dioad I'nl havoc iii the enemy's ranks.
The rebel force consisted of 3,(100 in tan
try and 40(1 cavalry and ten guns.
The Federal forces, ufter cutting their
way through tho enemy's ranks, were
much scattered, bat soon formed ngain
and renewed their fire, but received no
reply or further pursuit froa ihe ene

The most exposed point at present is

place. The greatest portion of Gen. Sio

Gen. Sicgel is still hero, arranging plans
for future operations with Major General
Fremont. His chief want is artillery ami

has been done in St l.oui.-, with a view to
secure a roper defence for the cnpitol at
the lewd possiblo expense of men, who
will all be needed when the proper time
arrives for offensive deiuoiiilrations.
