HARVEY TICKLER, Editor.
Wednesday, Aug. 7th 18G7.
ADVERTISING AGENTS, EX
CHANGES, and til others interested, will
please note the CHANGE of TITLE, of this
paper, from THE NORTH BRANCH DEM
OCRAT to WYOMING DEMOCRAT.
Change of Name--and Why P
We do not deem it necessary to inform
the readers of the Democrat that a change
has been made in its size and genera] ap.
pearance as well as in the title or hcading-
These facts mast be apparent to all. The
paper speaks for itself. It is, perhaps,
due to our friends that we should furnish
some explanation of the change made in
the heading or title of the Democrat.
The old title— The North Branch Dem
ocrat was given the paper man)- years ago,
when the subject of canal improvements on
the North Branch of the Susquehanna
river, from Pittston to the State line was
an exciting topic in this and Bradford
Counties, through which this canal exten
sion passed. The name at that time gave
the paper a more specific local designation
than at present The term North Branch,
as understood in this state now, applies
not to the canal extension, but to the River,
from Northumberland, where it forms a
junction with the West Branch, to Athens,
or Tioga point. A name applicable to so
extensive a region, fai'ed to sufficiently
localize our paper. Hence, for the pur
pose of fixing its locality, it was almost in
variably called by papers and persons
abroad, the Tankhannock Democrat.
The clasic, aboriginal name, "Wyoming"
has been given onr County. Within its
borders, occurred many of the stirring in
cidents that have rendered the name his
toric. Here lived many of those old Wy
oming settlers, whose early trials aud suf
ferings in the Wyoming valley, have pass
ed into history.
We think the name, Wyoming Demo
crat, an appropriate one, for these and oth
er reasons. Besides, it give our paper—
a local habitation, as well us—a name.
The Union Pacific Railroad.
OPEN 425 MILES.
A few weeks since we noticed the open
ing of the Union Pacific Railroad to
—Tf ■ taa ai • iioobo and
now we have to report its completion to
Crow Creek, a poiut 48 miles further west
making a total of 425 miles. Fifty miles
of track in addition arc graded ready for
the iron, and there is no doubt of the com
pletion of the road to the base of the Rocky
Mountains early in tbe Fall. The Compa
ny are confident that the whole line to the
Pacific will be open for business in 1870.
The Indians have annoyed the surveying
parties and tie cutters, who are many hun
dred miles in advance of the work; but
they have a wholesome fear of the popula
tion that a railroad carries with it. and all
trains run without intenuption.
The business of the Company has been
most flattering. The earnings for the
quarter ending August Ist, were about
$700,000; but as the report of the last
week in July has not been received, the
exact fraction cannot be given. These
earnings acerucd from operating an aver
age of not more than 350 miles of road,
and after deducting operating expenses,
the balance is far in excess of the interest
obligations of the Company on the amount
of bonds they can issue on that distance.—
It should be remembered that this result is
from a troy business alone, through a new
conntry, and is not to be compared with
the vast through business that must follow
tbe opening of the whole line to the Pacif
ic. The success of the enterprise seems
to be thoroughly assured, and we can see
no reason why the First Mortgage Bonds
are not entitled to rank among the best
securities. The daily sales are now so
large, that the Company already entertain
the.idea of advancing tho price.
What Can't a Military Governor do t
A military governor, under the recon
struction act, can—
Remove governors, judges, mayors, and
officers of State, generally.
Can exclude white aldermen and appoint
black in their places.
Can take possession of savings banks.
Can make laws and postpone the pay
ment of debts.
v Can rnn down cityjstocka and repudiate
Can spend $500,000 for registering black
voters, and refuse to register white ones.
Can abolish local taxes, and regulate tho
circulation of papers.
Can settle tbe rates of wages, and the
price of comodities. Can disobey the Pres
ident and insnlt the Cabinet. They can
do all this and far more What they can't
do, no one has ventured to say.
It would certainly be a difficult task to
say what they cannot do, still we may ven
ture to say what they can't be ; They can't
be decent. They can't be civil. They
can't be gentlemen. They can't be true
frienda of a republican government. They
can't be honest. Tltey can't he christians
a bit more than political preachers can.

The Natural Result of Mongreliam.
Jamaica, once the glory of Exeter Hall,
and "moral ideaism," furnishes abundant
; evidence of what may be expected in this
country, should the people submit to tbe
domination of mongrclists. A private let
ter, partly printed in the Pall Mall Ga
zette, says that tho writer, who is an old
resident, "never knew Jamaica in such a
state of despondency. None of the better
classes—no educated person —would re
main if tbey could manage to get away.—
The country is deeply in debt, no effort is
made to develop her resources, and taxa
tion is largely increased." Regret is ex
pressed that the colonists no longer possess
'anything like self-government." The
Parish of St. Anna, that ia 1840 contaiued
thirty sugar estates, now has thirteen, and
of these several are on the point of aban
donment. Of fifty-tbree cofiee properties,
there are only four remaining. There is
no market for horses, mules, aud cattle. —
The principle crop, pimento, promisbes to
Jamaica has been "reconstructed." It
presents a fair picture of the point to which
Radicalism is endeavoring to reduce our
once wealthy and thriving Southern States.

Wc last week announced the existence
!of the above named company, and gave
such facts in relation to its prospects and
operations as had then reached us. We
then expressed the hope that we should
be able to report its further doings.
A neatly printed pamphlet, giving some
further facts in relation to this company—

I also had a conversation with A. S. Rollins,
of California, the Superintendant; and
with Dr. E. N. Banks,'one of the Trustees,
and up to a recent date, the only man who
has been actively engaged in the matter.—
The Doctor, who is a son of the Hon.
Ephraim Banks, late Auditor Generral of
this State, having some skill in geology and
chemistry, and a strong predilection for the
metals, was attracted to that point, up
wards of a year since, by the reports of the
existence of oil, and minerals, in that re
gion, which were then so general through
out the country. The oil fever there as
, in most other places, outside of the recog
: nized oil region proper, bad its run aud
; subsided. Dr. Banks never lost faith in
! the existence, there, of valuable minerals,
but has been, for months, patiently and
; quietly "prospecting" that entire region.
Discovering what to him was good eviden
ces, he recently took leases on favorable
conditions of the owners, of upwards of
1300 acres of the land, by bim thought to
be most valuable io minerals. Samples of
the various rock thought to contain met
als, were taken by him to New York for
assays, with the following gratifying re
sults. (We copy from the pamphlet above

WYCOFF & CO.
These reports together with the person
al inspection by Major Rollins, resulted
1 in the formation of a Company at New
York, under the general incorporation
laws of that state, with the title at
the head of this article. The capial stock
of which is fixed at $500,000, divided into
50,000 shares of $lO, each. Ten tbousanl of
these shares or $50,000 for the purpose of
! securing a working capital is shortly to bo
put in the market at sss per share.
The following are the officers of the
company as at present organized :
O. L. IIALSTEAD, Esq , President.
S. J. BI'RRELL, Esq. Sect'/ and Treas'r.
O. L. Hallstcad, Esq., of Nicholson, Pa.
Samuel J. Burrell Esq. No 67 Nas. St N Y
Hon, Thos. Barclay, No. 4 Wall St. N. Y.

Maj. A. S. Rollins, of California,
Dr. E. N. Banks, of Nicholson, Pa.,
Maj. S. N. Bradford, of Scrauton, Pal
A. S. ROLLINS, Superintendent.
The Superintendent, Mr. Rollins, is now
at Nicholson, giving personal attention to
matters there, preparatory to commencing
f operations for mining on a scale that will
in a short time fully dcvelope the resources
1 of these mines.
The chemical analyses to which some
i portions of this rock has been subjected,
has resulted in the discovery of valuable

I "In addition to metalliferous rock o'b
! tained from this property, there is found in
j great abundance a kind of decompose red
slate, of much value for paint, and worth

per ton. which, it is estimated, may be min
ed and shipped to said city at a cost not ex
ceeding eight dollars prr ton, thus realizing
to the Company a net profit of seventeen j
dollars for every ton shipped. Conse-!
quently, it is believed that the product of
the Company's operations—-to say nothing
of the gold and silver bearing rock—.may
also be made largely renumerative if car

This, then, is a brief, hurried, and rath
er impellect account of this new company,
which has sprung up so suddenly, in our
midst, and is exciting so much interest and j
inquiry here and elsewhere.
We, of course, have no opioion of our
own on the subject of Gold, Silver or
Paint mines in this County— not having
been able to give the subject neither ob
sarvation nor reticction. We can but
hope however, that it will not prove an
iguit fain ui, and tbat the honestly enter
tained opinions aud of the
company, and of our Nicholson friends,
may be fully realized.
Esq. Hallstcad, tie President, is one of
our soundest and most prudent business
men. A man the least likely of all others
to embark in any chimerical wild-goose en
terprise. We are assured that be and
those with whom he is associated, in this i
enterprise, have unbounded confidence in
its speedy success,

Fred Douglas on the Situation.
Having given our readers the views o-
Thad. Stevens, Ben. Wade, etc., our apolof
gy for introducing Fred. Douglas must be,
that lie is quite as good as the rest of his
: party. We cxtivct from the New York
correspondence of the I.ouisville Detno
t crat :
Somebody yesterday asked Fred. Doug
las (negro) why he did'nt go down South,
along with the rest of the Republican ora
tors, to help enlighten the minds of the
freedmcn as to their political duties, etc.
"Because," said Fred,, "1 want to train
alone. 1 want to wait till those mean
whites get through with tbeir talk, and
then I will begin. 1 notice that io all the
speeches tha' Wilson, Kelly, and the rest
of them have been making to the colored
folks at Richmond, Mobile, New Orleans,
and other places, nothing is ever said
about giving the colored men a \ ice Pres
ident of their own color. But they've got
to make that concession to u*, and that's
just what I'm going down South to tell
our folks to insist npon."
"But, Fred., do yon think the Jacobin
managers will accede to that arrange
"I have no doubt of it at all, sar ; none
at all. Wendell Phillips and Horace
Greeley say they are in a favor of it, and
what they say has got to be done. They
are the inen who run the republican party,
along with old Ben. Butler, and whoever
would run with that party must do what
"But do yon think, if they nominate j
grant for President,that Grant will consent ;
to have a darkey on the same ticket as
"Don't think anything about it, sar.— j
Grant only counts one. It is not for Grant
nor any other man,to dictate to the people.
We are the people. Grant is but one of
our servants, sar. If be doesn't like Lis
compan v, let him resign. Plenty of others,
sar, ready to take his place ; plenty of
"But, even if they nominate a darkey
for Vice President, what good will it do
you or your race ?"
"Don't talk foolish, child. It will do us
a heap of good. In de fust place, it will
make a colored man President of the Sen
ate. and then as the President may die, he
may be President of the United States.—
That's my plan of reconstruction, sar ; and
until it is adopted and made successful, sar,
the Union will never be restored, and the
country will never have peace.''
"There were other queeries about to be
submitted to the distinguished "man and
brother," but just at that moment Rev. Dr.
Cheever came along, and after introdncing
Fred, to a blushing damsel (who was hang
ing lovingly on his arm.) the whole party
vanished in the direction of the office of the
Mongrel Insult to Pennsylvania.
The Westchester JetFersoriian says
Pennsylvania used to be a proud old State
nrvuid of Jior rnnr'- •>" 1 --
character, her achicvemtnts, both civil and
military. We invoke this feeling of State
pride against a party which thus insult
both the State and people by an endorse
ment of such an article as the following
from the Salem, Massacliusettcs, Journal.
"The nomination of Judge Williams for
Supreme Court in Pennsylvania, by the
Radical-Republicans, is another acknowl
edgement on the part of the stolid Dutch
elemeuts of the superiority of New Eng
land men. Judge Williams is a native
of Connecticut, and received Lis ear'y
training in the higher-law doctrines of our
section. We have been reliably informed
that be has in no-wise apostatized from
the faith of his fathers or the true principle
governing the rights of man, but that be
steadfastly retains his atfection for New
England institutions. Those are the sort
of men whom we love to see elevated to
power in the Dutch Middle States and
over the half-civilized people of the West.
They constitute the ark of safety foijthe
material interests of our section, and in no
instance, where money can effect anything,
should the people of New England be
sparing of their means in securing the
nomination and election of such men as
Pennsylvania—poor, ignorant, stupid
old Dutch State—regardlese of the hissing
of copperheads, is now pretty thoroughly
"Yankeeized." Thaddeus Stevens, a na
tive of Vermont, and a man true to his
faith, holds the political elements of the
State in tho hollow of his hand, and on a
fair ballot of the rank and file of the party,
would have "been made United Slates
Senator, The State Superintendent of
Common schools is by birth and education
a New Englander, and it is fair to presume
that the next crop of Dutch voters will bo
as completely "Yankceized" as it is possi
ble to effect out of such unpromising mate
rial. We understand, also, .that each an
nual legislature is largely composed of
New England men, and that more one-half
the present delegation in Congress are na
tives of our section, but of that we are not
quite positive. Taking matters on the
whole, the out-look in Pennsylvania is as
favorable for New England ideas and su
premacy as could be wished."
BOSTOS STILL ENOAGED IK THE SLAVE
TRADE— The following item appears in the
Albany Journal :
"A gentleman from near Columbia, S.
C., a prominent leader during the war,
purchased, a few weeks ago, in Cuba,
where he has a plantation, one of his for
mer slaves, who bad been landed and sold
by Boston skippers."
As loDg as there is a negro to kidnap
and and a market to sell him in, pious and
philanthropic Boston ship owners will be
found ready to coin money by the trade
they have so hypocritically denounced.
The papers from all parts of the
South bear the same testimony—that un
der management of demagogues and office
hunters, the population of the South is ar
rayed race against race—black agaiuat
white. The only oontcst is a contest of
races. A thousand maledictions will light
upon tho wretches who have brought about
this groat evil, full of soirow to both laces,
