Battle of the Factions.
The political doings of the Democratic
" statesmen" assembled in Convention at Bal
timore of course receive due attention from the
public ; but we think their martial exploits,also
should not be lost sight of. We therefore beg
to present a short summary of the encounters
of the past week in chronological order. The
Convention met on Monday, and on Tuesday,
before the Committee ou Credentials, Mr.
HOOFER called Mr. IIINDMAN "that man," and
designated his statements as " unqualifiedly
false." IIINDMAN thereupon got home heavily
on HOOPER'S knowledge-box, and drew a pistol.
IIOOIEK, having uo pistol withdrew from the
ring. On Wednesday, Mr. WHITELEY, of
Delaware, waited upon Mr. TOWNSEND, of the
same State, at his hotel, and delivered him a
vigorous right-hander on the frontispiece,which
led to Mr. TOWNSEND'S seizing him by the
shirt-front and cravat, and shaking him. After
a bold rally both men went to grass, WHITEI.EY
underneath searching for his pistol. The police
interfered before the commencement of the
secoud round.
On the same day Mr. FISHER, of Virginia,
had a mill with the poflee at the door, and
had the claret drawn freely from his probosois
and was otherwise severely punished. He
threatened that Virginia would secede.
On Thursday, Mr. MONTGOMERY, of Pennsyl
vnnia, was informed by Mr RANDALL, the same
State, that what he said was " false—a base
falsehood" MONTGOMERY retorted by calling
RANDALL that old man, and "a lying scoun
drel." Mr. RANDALL, Junior, thereupon sent
a friend to inquire if that epithet was applied
to his father, to which Mr. MONTGOMERY res
ponded, with military brevity, that Mr. RAN
DALL, Junior, "might go to "an unpleasant
place. Mr. RANDALL'S friend then informed
was " a low, vulgar fellow, and a blackguard"
—a proposition which that gentleman did not
attempt to dispute.
Alter the adjournment Mr RANDALL, Jr.,
meeting Mr, MONTGOMERY in the street, hit
him cleverly between the eyes, drawing claret
copiously. Mr. MONTGOMERY, in reply, got
home heavily on Mr. RANDALL'S listener, send
ing him to grass, and was about to kick him
while down, but the bystanders cried "foul,"
and took him off. An offer of a pistol Jiy the
obliging Mr. BRYAN, of Texas, was declined
by Mr. RANDALL, and both parlies then left
the ground. On the same day the platform
occupied by the Convention broke down, send
ing all the delegates to grass.
tion of the 19th says ;
" We can honestly say that we arc glad the
friends of Mr. Lincoln have taken the pains
to cause that gentleman's stationery account,
as member of Congress, to be examined, with
a view to ascertain whether the scandal con
cerning his having had several pairs of boots
charged that account, and of course paid for
out of the public funds, was or was not well
founded. We published the allegation to that
effect from the Louisville Courier, with simul
taneous expression of a hope that some one
would investigate it ; since, trifling as the cir
cumstance might seem to many, we thought
that if true, it indicated such a disgracefully
low estimate on the part of Mr. Lincoln of the
ditties and responsibilities of a representative,
and of the principles of honor and honesty,
that it ought to be known to the people who
arc now asked to elevate him to the highest
office in the nation ; and if uutrue, we, know
ing that such weapons damage their authors
more than against whom they are aimed,desir
ed to sec the charge fall into disuse. We frank
ly say that the officer of the of Repre
sentatives having in charge the stationary ac
counts has certified through the newspapers
that the records of his office furnish no evidence
of any transaction like that laid to Mr. Lin
coln's charge."
A CATTLE EMBARGO. —The Cattle Commiss
ioners of Connecticut have caused notices to
be posted in every Connecticut town on tlie
Massachusetts line east of the Connecticut river
forbidding the driving or bringing into the
State, from Massachusetts, any cattle, sick or
well, ou penalty of SSOO fine and six months
imprisonment. Petitions arc in circulation in
Colebrook, Norfolk, and other towns on the
line, west of the river, for a similar prohibi
tion. Indeed, there is more excitemeut there
than in the eastern part of the State, as Litch
field county is exclusively a grazing and stock
raising county. To show the feeling there, a
single fact will suffice. Mr. Abial Pease, of
Warehouse Point drove a pair of cattle
(healthy, but one of the animals having a
cough) over the river to find pasturage ; and
before suiting his wishes lie kept on west till
he reached Colebrook ; there the people seized
the cattle and compelled their immediate re
turn to East Windsor.
(£7=* An Albany early on the morning of the
20th the police discovered a woman named Brid
get Carey, wandering around the streets per
fectly naked, and her derson streaming with
blood. After a desperate struggle tliev cap
tured her and took her to the Station-house,
when they learned that she had been insane
for some time, and that in one of her parox
ysms she had jumped throngli the closed win
dow of the room where she was confined, car
rying the sash with her. On examination they
found that her mouth was filled with broken
glass, which she was chewing with evident re
lish. It was only after a severe struggle that
they succeeded in clothing her properly in order
to carry her to the Asylum.
B6T" JOHN BINNS, Esq., an old Editor and
and publisher, died in Philadelphia on the Kith,
in his 88th year. BINNS was born in Dublin
in 1772. Ifc took an active part iu political
agitations of the time, and as a consequence
became iuvolved in difficulty with the English
Government. He was tried for high traason
and uttering seditions lauguage, but was ac
quitted, and came to this country. lie enter
ed into the newspaper Northumber
land, Pa., then in Philadelphia. He ranked
among the fiercest assailants of Gen. JACKSON.
After his paper,the Democratic Press, had lost
its hold on popular favor, he relinquished it,
and was elected Alderman. In this position
he gained a high reputation for honesty and
Mr. HAMLIN like Mr. Lincoln, was an con
sistent supporter of the Principles of the Re
publican party, before the party itself was
organized. Though one was a Whig and the
other a Democrat, both were firm opponents
of Slavery extension, and on that issue both
preseut a clear record. Both were among the
earliest and most effective advocates of the
new organization.

JBSsy The Baltimore Convention having 011
Friday adopted the majority report of the
committee on credentials,by which the Donglas
delegates were admitted in place of the seced
ers from the Southern States, a withdrawal of
a portion of the Southern delegates followed.
On Saturday, the regular Convention—or
at least what was left of it—met, and alter
a good deal of speechifying, finally nominated
Stephen A. for President by a vote
of H3 out of 189 1-2. Benjamin Fitzpatrick,
of Alabama, was subsequently nominated for
Vice President. The nominations arc not re
ceived with much enthusiasm, from thfe circum
stances under which they were made—the Con
vention which made them being less than two
thirds of the original Convention.
The Seeeders, also organized and nominated
JOHN C. Bueckenmdgk for President, and
Gen. Joseph Lank, of Oregon, for Vice Presi
dent. The ticket is a strong one, and will be
considerably in the road of the Douglas ticket.
\\ licthcr the itlcTiuiond Convention will now
be held, \rc do not know.
There are now four tickets in Die field for
President and Vice President—the Republi
can, the Union and Constitution, the regular
Democratic, and the Seeeders.
LETTER I ROM Jt OOF. BATES. — The Missouri
Democrat, of the 20th contains a letter from
Judge BATES in support of the Chicago nom
inee. Wc have not room for the letter thi.>
week but the sentiment* it contains do credit
to the author. After disclaiming that he foils
the least pique or dissatisfaction at not being
nominated himself, he says that it is plain that
the approaching contest must be between the
Democratic and Republican parties, and he
prefers the latter. The Democratic Party, he
says, has merged its existence in the one idea
of Negro Slavery, and is wholly sectional. It
has in various instances endangered the cquali
ty of coordinate branches of the Government
and attempted to degrade the Judiciary by
striving to make a passive register of party
decrees. In most, if not all things, lie considers
the Republican Party the opposite of the Dem
ocratic and therefore entitled to his support,
and this would be a sufficient reason for It is
supporting any man whom the Republican
Party might put forward, if he had not other
good reasons for supporting .Mr. LINCOLN. The
Union Party he considers too weak to elect
any candidate or establish any principle. He
says lie has known Mr. LINCOLN for more than
twenty years, and he has earned a high repu
tation for truth, candor, courage, morals and
amiability ; that lie has talents, and will use
them to the best advantage. He is the peer
of the first men of the nation, and well able to
sustain himself, and advance the cause against
any adversary, and in any field where mind and
knowledge are the weapons ttscd ; that in brief
he considers him a sound, safe, national man,
who could not be sectional if he tried, for al!
his feelings anil interests are identified with
the great valley of the Mississippi, and that
for the good of the whole county, he hopes he
may be elected.
JEte£r The President on Saturday sent a
Message to the Senate, vetoing the Home
stead bill. He says, after reviewing the gen
eral provisions of this bill, that the clause of
the Constitution giving power to Congress to
dispose of the public lands, cannot be intend
ed to convey the power to give them away ;
and lie considers the small sum asked for the
land nudcrthe bill—tweuty-livc cents per acre,
with a credit for five years—would be eqnival
cnt to donating them. lie contends, as a gen
eral principle, that Congress does not possess
the power to douatc mouey to States or indi
viduals, and that this would be the ease in so
disposing ot the means of public revenue.—
The bill was also unjust to the holders of mili
tary bouuty lands, as it reduced their value,
and made an nnjost discrimination between
Americans and foreigners by prohibiting the
former, if single, from availing of its benefits,
where the latter, tbongh not the head of a
family, is given the privilege. After consider
able debate on the President's objections, a
vote was taken on the questiou of the passage
of the bill notwithstanding the veto, and it
failed for want of a two-thirds vote.
OMINOUS. —It is stated that Foster, the dem
ocratic candidate for Governor,went to Wash
ington, to urge his Democratic friends not to
oppose the Republican Tarriff bill. It is now
bis only salvation, he tbiuks, in this State. -
We should think that every respectable and
selfrespecting democrat would be driven from
his party by the following short, plain, truth
ful chain of facts :
A convention of Oppositionists lately met
in Baltimore,and another assembled in Chicago.
The former was far less thronged and enthu
siastic than the latter, although it had,through
causes generated by democratic violence and
| outrage, somewhat more of a national repre
sentation. But we are prepared at all times
to show, by evidence drawn from the leading
conservative journals and statesmen of the
south and north, that the views held, and the
candidates adopted at those two conventions,
were very nearly identical.
Yet, whether our opinion on this point be
right or wrong, these two conventions, em brae
ing all the Opposition, and, in both eases,com
posed of conflicting branches of the Opposition
met, organized, consulted, debated, resolved,
nominated and parted in peace and order. In
neither was there a single instance of threat,
insult or defiance. Much less was there a case
of violence by blows or of the drawing of knives
and pistols. They met, talked, acted and sep
arated like gentlemen, as well as freemen.
In contrast with ail this, we will not detail
the general quarreling, confusion and rowdyism
which strongly marked the democratic conven
tion held in Charleston, and which brand that
since fighting in Baltimore with a burning
stigma. This natii na' disgrace will be beard
of soon enough over the whole civilized world,
without our aiding to proclaim it. Our readers
too, have doubtless seen the whole of it. All
we ask of them is to mark (ftr difference and
judge for themselves what party is decent, con
servative, reliable.
JOHN SCHWARTZ. —We regret to learn that
the Hon. John Schwaitz, member of Congress
from Berks county, died in Washington, on
Wednesday evening 2!>th iust. .Mr. Schwailz
had been ill with jaundice for some time past,
yet such was his devotion to the pußlic busi
ncs, that lie had only absented himself from
the House within the few days 'preceding his
death. Jt was only when the grasp of death
was upon him thai he gave Hp and took to his
bed. We could not possibly have a strong
proof of the sterling worth of the man than this
single fact affords ns. He has been in his seat

lie so faithfully represented, and has resided
there all his life. At his diniise his age was
about, sixty five. He is popularly supposed,
outside of IJerks,to have been atanti Lecomp
lon democrat, and to have, owed his election
to that ; but such was no! the fact. He was
an ardent friend of Harrison and Clay, and a
thoroughgoing protectionist. In truth he
was an old fashioned Clay Whig. In the War
of 1812 he was appointed by Governor Snyder,
and served as a major in the Pennsylvania
volunteers called out at the time the Dritish
army invaded Maryland. Subsequently lie
amassed a fortune in the iron manufacture.—

The Great Eastern was to sail for New York

tan troops were allowed to embark with their
arms and baggage. The Neapolitan Govern
ment had decided upon concentrating all the
military'forccs at Syracuse and Messina. The
damage done to Palermo by the bombnrdment
was immense. The Neapolitans committed
great atrocities—bnrniug houses and killing
women and children. Garibaldi had called
all Sicilians between the ages of 11 and 50 to
arms. It is said that France has accepted
the mediation proposed by Naples. The con
ditions are a liberal Constitution for Naples,
a separate Government for Sicily under the
House of Bourbon, subject to the condition
that the Sicilians give their consent. It is re
ported that Mnzzini had embarked for Sicily
The Sardinian Government had ordered his
arrest, if possible. Garibaldi had authorized
Signor Bertiui to effect a loan, stating that
he lias at Sicily immense means to satisfy all
his claims. The evacuation of Italy by the
French troops had been completed. Bread

TION.—The death of Judge Galbraith, of the
Sixth District, composed of the counties of
Krie, Crawford and Warren, will give Gov.
Packer an appointment for a few months, and
devolve upon the voters the election of a
President Judge of that district. The Sixth
District has an Associate Law Judge—David
Derickson, of Meadville, on the Bench. We
presume either Samuel P. Johnson, of Warren
or some other of the older members of the
Erie Bar, will be the nominee. The District
is st rongiy Republican, though by a split in

was elected in 1857.

ftaT Hon. F. P. BLAIR, of Missouri, who
has just unseated Mr. BARRETT, publishes a
address to his constituents in the Missouri
Democrat, of tint 18th. lie states that he titi
deitook the contest which has just terminated
in his favor, not to expel Mr. BARRETT from
the House, but to refer the question of right
again to to these immediately interested,—that
is. to his constituents. The attitude which he
submitted to take has been one of humiliation,
of anxiety, of expense and of labor. He would
not have assumed it merely to change places
with his opponent. It was his eouvicliou
" that the Kurutive power installed at Wash
ington by fraud and corruption had re w olved -
to perpetuate itself by the systematic applica
tion of such means which induced him to resist
them overwhelming as they were in his own case.
Mr. BI;\YJ then cites some of the revelations
of the Covode Committee. These frauds he
was convinced were attempted to be perpetu
ated in his case. He considered Mr. BARRETT
merely " as the instrument in the hands of tlie
antagonists of free principles and the pnrity of
elections in the St. Louis restrict." His con
stituent.-, ho soya, owe the restoration of their
rights to a few Northern Democratic ilepre- ]

boldly encountered twcju lices in unity with the

right of suffrage against the attempts cf Kx

Crif* A sad accident occurred on the Hud
son River Railroad, Wednesday afternoon,
near Peekskill. Three men, in a state ui in
toxication, were walking on the track, when j
two of them grew quarrelsome and commenc
ed to fight. During the contest the 11 A. M.
Express train came along. The third man
seeing his comrades' danger, rushed in to sep
arate them, when the cars passed over the
three, killing two iiistautaueously.aud so injur
ing the third 'bat lie died very shortly after.
(>;ie of the party, an Englishman, had recent

gone out to buy paper aud envelopes to reply J
to her, when he met the others, and treated E

NEW JERSEY AM, RIGHT. —The nomination
of LINCOLN and HAMLIN has been received with
great culhusiasm by the Opposition in New
Jersey. Meetings arc being held in every
part of the State to ratify the choice of
Chicago Convention. At Newark a demons
stration was made at which twenty thousand
people were present. Relegations were in at
tendance from all the neighboring towns.—
Speeches were made by several of the leading
men of the State, and ol New York. Reso
lutions endorsing the nominations were adopt
ed by acclamation, cannons were lircd and
fireworks exhibited. New Jersey will, with
out doubt, give her electoral vote for the Ke
publican candidates, LINCOLN and IIAMLIS.
FRIGHTITL SITCIPE. —A most shocking case
of suicide occurred a few days since in l ergu
son township, Clearfield county, Pa. A roao
named Samuel St roup, first took an axe and
nearly severed his hand from his arm. Fear
fug that the wound might not result in death,
the misguided man swallowed a large doseo:
corrosive sublimate, which soon terminated bis
life. Shortly before his death he was discov
ered by some of his neighbors, who, not know
ing that he had taken poison, endeavored to
save him by binding up the wound on bis
wrist. He told them, however, that it was
no use, and in a few minutes expired.
B&- Advices from Washington represent
that Messrs. RKEKINRIDGK und LANE will c '
cept the nomination. Ptr contra, other letter
writers are fpiite as certain that they will de

In this County, as far as we have heard tb
expression, the Democracy are divided,
majority perhaps incliniug to DOLGLAS.
