The Certainty of Victory I
The enthusiasm viith which the people are rally.

‘VILMOT is the sure precursor of Victory. The
party in this Colnity is thoroughly united. The
bolteis and Barcrivrcii men of 1848, are trying to'
divide that party with a bolter of 1846 and 1848,
but their schemes' ate unavailing. The people are
disgusted with their alliance with teltiVeoders, and
the transparent veil they seek to throw over their
disgraceful recreancy and abandoment of principle,
will not answer. Their motives are known, and
their characters sufficient to,stamp with odium their
proceedings. They cannot deceive the people
with hypocritical professions of , friendship for the
principles they have so often and bitterly ridiculed
and denounced, and im indignant. and intelligent
people will rebuke their pretensions at the

directly to the great popular heats, in vindication of
the principle which ambitious men would prostrate.
They are responding with enthusiasm. The peo
ple are always right—and there is a point beyond
which self-consti.uted leaders cannot sway them
They are asked now to give - up all their principles
—to support JAMES I.O*RET, whops opposed their
pridciples and their nominations for the past four
years. Thei will not do it—and, will redder at the
ballot box a righteous verdict. Honor to the glor

County !
Tioga, is the home of the boater's vandidate.-
There they know factious course towards. regu

will repudiate him as they did JONAH Bagwsrica,
when he too, was a candidate in the hands - of the
Slavery-prociagandirts,to overthrow their principles.
The result is not a doubtful one. There is vir
tue and intelligence in the people. They are not
prepared to say they have been acting a foolish or
childish part in their repealed maintenance of their
principles. They will not seethe standard of Free

Oar.whici• 'Ticket.
We cannot too strongly urge upon our Minder\
tic friends the necessity of an active and energetic
support of all the candidates on our county ticket.
Let every one remember that our motto is "princi
ples not men." As it is impossible for all to be
gratified in the ,selection of candidates we adopt
the delegate system, as the most democratic, and
- the one best calculated to unite the action of the
party'upon Oaf candidate for each office, and in do
ing so, there mint of course, and of necessity, be a
sacrifice to some extent of personal preferences to
preserve union of strength. Hence, it is the duty
of the delegates, when they assemble in conven
tion, to pursue a system of conciliation ; otherwise
their 'deliberations would be characterized by dis
cord, and result in disunion, distractim, and defeat ;
and thus enable our enemies to strike widow, which
would defeat our, candidates and prostrate our re
publican principles.
When a county ticket is formed, as it now is, by
the • hannonioug action of the convention of dele
gates, composed of men who maintain and advo:
caw true republican principles, tt certainly becomes
the duty, and should hie the pleasure of every one
who professes the name of Democrat-,who it go
v'erned by the principles he professes, to give the
whole ticket hts cheerful, ardent and undivided
support. .1 •
We . have a ticket composed of men, who + in point
of Moral and political integrity, are entirely unex
ceptionable, anti. democrats_ should remember that
urn our next Legislature will devolve the electitan
a United States . Senator.
Jo short let every democrat go to the polls irith
this motto for his guide: llama) we STAND—
Divmeo wi F 44.1.;" and with • determination to
sus tain the principles of his political faith; then,
when the battle is ended and the victory won, he
will be able to mingle in the feelings of general joy,
with the friends of. Denhieurey. in a complete and
glorious triwaph over his enemies.

These are questions which address themselves
at once to the People: Party considerations are of
minnitonsequence, where our country, and the
perpetuity of our Free instiintions, as promulgated
by Jefferson an 4 the wise aril patriotic men of his
age, stein the scale. They address themselves to
the masses. = They go home to the bosom of every
Freeman, and demand his calm and serious con
templation. Let it be given now, for if ever the
attention of Freemen should be directed to the at
tempts of the slave power of our country, that time
is at present.
The contest between Slavery and FreedoM,eow
going on in this District should receive the att
tion of Freemen. Its magnitude is incalculable.—
By making war upon Hon,Divm Wumcrt, the Sla
very interest hopes to bredk up the foundations of
that great principle which has so strong a hold up
on the. people of this District. Freemen of the -
nth Congressional District, it is your duty to stand
by him, against the selfish and vindictive war which
is, waged against him. It is due to him, for his
-unflinching adherence to your principles—it isdue
to those principles—it is needed as encouragement
to the noble band in the North, who have stood
firm in Congress—it is due to your self respect to
maintain now the doctrine you have so often as
serted—and it is necessary to rebuke the foreign
influences which have set at work the servile tools
of Presidential aspirants in this District.
You can put your finger on every zealous op
ponent he has in this district, and tell the influ
ences which move 'each one. You knoli that vis
its to Wheatland and Philadelphia and-Washing
ton bare ripened the plot Which is now disclosed.
You know that a senile and mercenary pr6s has
been brought into this district—and an' ostensible
editor imported from the Pennsylvanian office at
Philadelphia, as accessories. Are you twilling to
be dictated to from such source'? Are you willing
at the bidding of such men to give up your princi•
plea ? Are you willing for such selfish and unprin
cipled purposes, to see your Representative struck
down ? Are you willing to see such monstrous in
justice, that mercenary men hers, when certain
men are elevated to die Presidency, can claim their
reward at their Mode Are you willing to second
the schemes of men who look to southern influence
and for southern patronage u the wages of the at
tempt which is now making to put down DAVID
Witarcrr? He has done mach to secure the emmi
•ty of the Slaveossacy. He has battled gallantly for
Freedom. He has withstood all the seductions of
patronage and place, be has braved all the mena
ces of that mighty influence. Uncorrupted he has
borne aloft the standard of Freedom, and beer) tree
to your cause. For this tkey may seek to destroy
him, but it should be your pride, as it is.your duty,
to gloriously sustain him. Because the South bate
him, end would put him down for devotion layout
interests, you shoild the more firmly stand by him
He Us been true to you—will you not be true to
him.? When Davro Wuatar falls at the bidding
of Slavery, joined with selfish men, who look to
' that interest for pay—when his constituents refuse
'to support him, and desert him—farewell •to Free
dom in the Keystone. Recreancy sad doughta
cism will riot unmolested amidst the triumph of
Slavery'and the wreck of Northern hopes--for it
will be countenancing them, and be paying a pre
mium for villainy. .
You can only fully carry out those principles by
his triumphant re-election. It should be the spon
taneous voice of every Freeman of this Dicier. .-

approval of - his devotion to their cause, and to re

who had noiclaim, on the score of the support of

The re-nomination of this gentleman ; as scan - di.
date for Congress, by the Democracy of this Dis
trict, will everywhere be hailed with joy by the
friends of Freedom and popular Rights. His incor
ruptible integrity—his fearlessness 3n the discharge
of his duty, and in the maintenance of Principle,
has gaindd for him a high and honorable distinction
among the .leading Statesmen of the country. The
people reel that in hint they have an upright and
faithful Representative—one upon whom they can
rely with confidence under all circumstances, and;
in every emergency—one who will not betray
them through fear or flattery—who is nelthe? se
duced by the smile , of Power,. nor awed by its
threatenings. His position, at this time, as keen
didater is one of peculiar and Intense interest, and
upon this District is fixed the anxious attention of
the whole country. Whatever may be said here,
by personal enemies, or interested political oppo
nents, the country will see in our Congressiolial
election only the great issue with which the name
of Mr.WlLsor is so closely associated. His success
sip give new hopes and new courage to the friends
of Freedom—his dekat would be hailed by shouts
of triumph .throughout the entire dominions of Sla

do not, entertain a doubt. His unanimous re-nomi

seems as if there should be but one voice upon the

justice of his course.: All *parties in the South,
