It is. very desirable that full attendance , be given
•at the primary meetings, and to secure this, timely
notice df the hour and respective z places of holding
,the Delegate elections should be.givencand the polls
kept open a sufficient length of time to give all an
• opportunity of voting.,, This will afford a free in
terchange oflopinion amongst the Democratie citi
zens of each district, and enable the delegates sent

sentiments of their constituents.
The approaching election is one of vast impor
tance to the interest, integrity and prosperity of our
Commonwealth. The election of Governor, is of
sufficient importance to call forth all the actie ity and
-deceitful artifices of the Federalparty ; and for the
purpose of counteracting that activity, and detecting
and exposing those deceptions, it becomes every
.Democrat.to be on the alert—to assist in the refuta
tion of falsehood and the advancement of troth.
The Standing Committee, therefore, recommend
the appointment by the democratic citizens, at their
several delegate elections, of one or more persons,
in each school district, as a committee . , to continue
till the general election, and whose dunes will be- to
form a more perfect 'organization, and advance the
great cause of democracy.

Election of Delessites.
We desire to say a few wordi to our Democrat
ic friends, in this county, on the subject of electing
their delegates to' the convention to frame a coun
ty ticket, and we do not know that we say it bet
ter than to adopt the sentiment and language of the
Perry county :Democrat, on the same subject .--•
The time is fart approaching when the Democ
racy will be called upon in their severs districts to
elect delegates to represent them in daunt, Con
vention, we say to them, attend to your delegate
elections. These elections may be considered but
trifling affairs by many 'of you—but be not deceiv
-ed or deceive yourselves with such an idea.—
Niuch, very much of the success of the democratic
. 4 ... party is dependent on the choke of honest and
competent delegates. When the convention is
composed of men who know the will of the peo
ple, and will go into the convention. with the single
purpose of carrying, out that will, by placing in no•
mination, such only as are known to be acceptable
to the people. a moral weight land influence is at
embed to their proceedings that almost certainly
ensures success. A ticket will there be formed by
the selection of honest, competent, and faithful men.
whom the •Democrary delight to honor, and who
Will be seen to receive the united vote of the party.
We hope then our democratic brethern will see the
propriety of attending the delegate elections,. and
choose such men as they know will carry the will
of the people into the convention, and return to
their districts with a ticket that will . meet the ap
probation of the people, as did the delegates to the
Democratic State - Convention last March, when
they presented the name of Francis R. Shunk as the
Democratic candidate—it meets the approbation of
the people—because they know him to be honest
and capable. And so it is in the formation of a
county ticket, let the convention but nominate hon
est and capable men, and our word for it, the tick
et will meet the approbation and support of the par
ty-r—and bring to - the polls hundreds who would
otherwise remain at Nene.
Another thing—sectional jealousies are some
times gotten up, this in our humble opinion is a
great error in the formation of a ticket. We never
could see any good reason why an honest, eapabie
and worthy man should'be excluded from the tick
- et, becauSe he 'perchance does not reside in this
or that part of the county. it is true We like to
see the candidates distributed as much as possible
over the body of the county, but to, establish a rule
that a particular officer must or must not come
from one or another part or particular district,
is suicidal 'to the party and often times deprive
'the party of the services of honest,?capable and
The party is always most prosperous when they

mistake was made in Porter township, Clinton co„

against Gen. Packer, which makes the actual ma

twelve against him. On elimination of the re

. states that, about two miles hom that -village, on
land known as the " Kerr tract," there is an ancient
mound. circular at the 'base—abottt 39 feet in diam
eter, rising oval to a point whiCh is surmounted by
an oaken stump probably originally two feet in di
ameter, which is almost totally decayed from age.
A few days since, some boys dug into the mound ;
and nearly under the stump, at the depth tif three
feet ; a skeleton was found, much decayed hat por
tions of it in fair degree of pteservation. Near the
head were found two stone hatchets, an arrow
head, a stone pipe, and—Gar more singular—a lot
of plates, apparently isingla.4s, which are covered
with tines and hieroglyphics Of different and beauti
fulcolors. The colors and workmanship betoken
a more advanced and entirely different state of
the arts than has been heretofore discovered in the
remains, of Indian tribes. Sorne of the plates were
destroyed, hot there are fifteen preseved. They are
circular ? oval in shape, and about seven inches by

Dr Wright,--Some time since yaur agent left me a
supply of your Indian Vegetable pills. I have found
said Pills to be in great demand lately for the cure
of fever and agile. Mr. James, Boyd has a son who
had been laid up with fever and ague and llad tryed
various other remedies, alt of which Proved of no
avail. He used one box, and is now sound and wt , ll.
Mr. T. Spencer had a daughter, Mr. Hugh Groves
a son, and Mr. C. Nichols, and three of his family,
were all down at the same time with fever and
ague, and bad also tried the various other ,remedies
without effect. Your Indian vegetable Pills urn re
stored them all to perfect health.
lean assure yon, from what I have seen,
dian Vegetable pills may be relied on for a perfect
care of Fever and Ague Yours, respectfuly,'
