M. C. Sadler, Esq.,
PEAR SIR :—During the night of May 19.180, our
Grocery and Provision Store, at North Second and Wit
19w streets, took fire at about 2 o'clock a m., and as
the store was a two-story wood building it btirtit rapidly,
and before the fire engines could act upon the fire, our
whole stock of goods, including much combustible ma
terial, and amounting to over $2 (.00, were wholly de
stroyed. We had one of your No 11 Chilled Iron Safes,
which was in the hottest part of the fire, ac d it came
out of the fire not in the least injured, except the mel
ting off of the name, plate and paint. , The contents
inside were not affected in the least, and we consider
the Safe just as good a protection against fire now as
before, and shall use it hereafter WM increased confi
dence. The lock works as per eetty as before the firs.
Yours truly, .11111ANITS & CROFT,
Lite 429 North Second et.
Attention to the above certificate is particularly re
quested, as it is the first trial of LILLIE'S SAFES in
an accidental fire in Philadelphia.
I would say to all parties who want a Fire and
Burglar-proof Safe that LILLIE'S WROUGHT AND
CHILLED IRON. SAFES are much the cheapest and
the only real Fire and . Burglar-proof Safes now made ;
and to those who want simply a Fire-proof t I would say
that LILLIE'S WROUGHT IRON SAFE is fully equal
in all respects to any of the most approved makers, and
is sold at fully one-third less price.

MONDAY MORNING, lUNE 29, 1863
THE DEMOCRATIC PRESS OF VIE
STATE ON THE NOMINATIONS.
From the Westmorelan4 Republic=
Many an anxious heart was relieved by the
announcement of the nominations made and
the resolutions passed by the Democratic Con
vention of the 17th instant. They have been
hailed with universal sanction, and have in
spired confidence in the success of that great
party in Which the hopes of the eOuntry are
Of the various gentlemen named for 'Gover
nor—all eminent for ability, for purity and
patriotism—George. W. Woodward was, to a,
cursory observer, the least likely to ; be chosen, •
for, he was not announced until the convention
was about to meet, he was without pledged
friends and had taken no part in the prelimi
nary canvass. We solemnly believe that the
union of all the members of the convention
by which hie name was presented for the suff
rages of the people, was the inapiratiOn of a
merciful Providence ; and we rejoice in this
evidence of the returning favor or Heaven, to
which we owe so much and for which we have
been so ungrateful. The severe trials through
which we have passed'are the just punishment
of our national offences. We have been cursed
with tyranny' because we had not justly valued
liberty. Libations of blood and enortnons
treasure have been poured,out to recall ua to
our duties and atone for our neglect of them.
The very excesses of the 'Federal executive.
and their agents, the wantonness of the wrongs
they inflicted, their bold avowals of usurpa
tioq, their insolent disregard of the Constitu
tion, of the public will, of their oaths, and
their duty, their assumption of arbitrary power
'as superior to the law of the land, their in
sidious attacks on the Federal. Union, the
sovereignty of the States and the freedom of
citizens, have been, we humbly believe, the
sharp but sure meats, designed by God, to
arouse in dur bosonis the sliimbering spirit of
of our fathers, to inspire uswith their patriot
ism, understanding , and; resolution.
Let him who thinks this language too strong,
calmly consider the character of the candi
dates, and candidly examine the resolutimps of
the convention—the one too pure for slander
and the other too wise for impeachment—and
he will join us in joy for the prospect, glowing
in the future, of the deliveranee which is
We commend such examination especially to
our. Republican fellow-citizens, the masses of
whom are true and patriotic, , and all of whom
have like interests with us, in that which con
corns the public good. With the exception of
the extortioners and plunderers and office hol
ders, there are few Republicans who approve
the conduct of the administration—there are
few who do not feel that the war has been in
famously mismanged, and that the laws which
protect persons and property have been gross
ly violated. Pride of supposed consistency,
strong desire to sustain the government, and
horror of the rebellion, induce many. honest
men to suppress the avowal of condemnation

however, the Federal executive shill, by`mili-'
tary power, deprive us of this last refuge and
remedy, whether by armed interference or by
sending soldiers of their own party to vote the
people down, the time will then havei arrived
for resort to the reserved 'rignts which are
asserted by the sw,ord, and without which
tyranny would bneternal. ' I . Ve 'do •nOt; believe.
the administration will 'dare thus directly to,
i n vade the freedom of eleotionti, though,Of
course, all the minor means of drception, cor
ruption and intimidatiOn will be resorted to.
These we do not fear, for 'the virtue of the
pt&ple is proof againstlhem. '
It' is true that in the Delaware eleetien there
was direct military interference, and in Con
necticut the election was carried by einding
home Abolition soldiers to. vote, while the
Democrats were kept-in camp and* thus de
barred from exercising thin, right.. , But Penn
sylvania is neither Delaware nor Connecticut.
Too vast to be affected by all •the .volunteers
who can be misled, too powerful to be insulted
with impunity, the cowardice of contemplated
crime will recoil from. the attempt* to control
her by these wicked' means. If all" our sol
diers could vote, it would , undoubtedly add
largely to the Democratic. majority. •
Let us rest cOetent. ; There is utilbersdOnht

Judge Woodward is a sound patriot and
statesman, Titre and spotless. His eleetioo,
which we confidently look for by a 'tremendous
majority, will place Pennsylvania in es gooda
position as the electio,n of Seymour has placed
the great State of New York.
Rally, then, Democrats; and all other con
eervatives, for WoridwaVd, , Ldwrie and victory
From thtelfoinlitOwn negt.t4*
It will be l obseried' front the proCeedings of
the Democratic State Convention, to. be found
in another `column, that the candidates pre
sentetl for the suppoit of the Democratie .and
Constitution-loving citizens of Pennsylvania,
are goo. George W. WOOdWard, Luzerne
county, for Governor, and Hob. Walter EL
Lowrie, of Pittsbttrg, for Judge 'of the Su
preme Court. These are, beyond' dispute,
very able nominations, and a better ticket
could hardly have been 'selected. They are .
both first class men in every respect, and must
command the confidence of the people gene
rally. They are the right men for the places,
and their election be a guarantee to the
people that they can rest secure in the enjoy
ment of all their constitutional` rights. With
Woodward for Governor and Lowrie upon the
Supreme Bench, the people may rest assured
that no interference will be allowed` with any
of their rights as citizens of the State of Penn
sylvania, from any source. That they, will be
elected there is no doubt. As certainly as the
second Tuesday of October comes round, so
certain is thcir election. " Old Montgomery"
will roll up one of the largest majterittea tot'
Woodward and Lowrie ever yet polled Within
her limits. Mark the prediction!

the second Tuesday ofGetober nest. It seems
that the feeling in favor of Judge Woodward
has beennigrowing in all portions of the State
for some time 'past, and it needed only the
surrender of the personal preferences of the
delegates to the convention, to at once indi
cate in'whoM they had unbounded confidence,
and towards Whom as a standard bearer this
fall, and as the Governor' of the State, the
hearts of the people were turned, as one of
strong mind and firm hand, in whose care could
be confided with safety the destinies of the
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Our present worthy Chief Justice of the Su

nated as the candidate for Supreme Judge.
From lhe Juniata True Democrat
We present to our readers. this week, the
names of the persons who were nominated by
the Democratic State Convention at Harris
burg, °tithe 17th inst.; the announcement of
which thrilled the hearts of hundreds of thou
sands of Democrats with joy, beyond descrip
The Hon. Gectege W. Woodward is one of the
ablest lawyers, most profound jurists, and far
seeing and" patriotic statesman of Pennsylva
nia's sons. His political record is without
spot or blemish ; even the rankest Abolitionist
will find it difficult to say aught against it,
while his personal and moral character is irre
proachable and invulnerable to' the shafts of
fanaticism's slanderous tongue.
To the Hon. Geo. W. Woodward we can con
scientiously give our most cordial and hearty
support, for we know him to be one of the most
loyal,, patriotic and able statesman that the
Democratic party could possibly have selected.
In his hands the Commonwealth will be per
fectly secure, and bdoro him the political
sharks and shoddy contractors will disappear
as mist before the mernintsun ; and our glori
ous old Commonwealth again resume her place
as the Keystone of the. Arch,, that, by fraud,
misrule and corruption had nearly been brought
to ruin. We are sure that at this time no bet
selection,could possibly have been made.—
A man with such intellectual endowments, pro
found legal knowledge; thorough statesman
ship, pure and unsullied moral character must
necessarily gather around the Democratic stan
dard., the wise, the good and the pattiotio, to
the utter discomfiture and defeat of all the fa
natical Abolition combinations of the day.
In Walter IL • Lowrie we have a man whose
vast experience as a jurist, strict integrity and
tried loyalty eminently fit him for the Supreme
Bench, and render him an ornament to the ju
diciary. His moral as well as political.cha'r
soars so high beyond reproach, that comment
oo our part would be perfectly superfluous.
Let the,Demaeracy of Pennsylvania, and all
who are favorable to State rights and prefer
Constitutional liberty, to despotism and ty
ranny, or, worse still, anarchy, rally round
our standard-bearers, , and victory will again
perch upon our banner, and the State be once
more rescued from Abolition rule.
From the Luzerne Union
More than any other nomination we bare
ever known, that of Judge Woodward was made
by the people. He never sought it—not a siogle
county in the State had instructed for him—
no partisan management was resorted to, to
place him in , this high position—no pally drill
or machinations characterized it in any way.
On the other hand, the piople, with one ac
cord, felt that this was a time why ibf

needs no encomium at our hands. But hailing
as he dons from, our midst, it may be expected
of us to give a brief sketch of his personal his
tory. Our candidate' is a native of Wayne
'county.' He came to:Wilkei Barre when quite a
young man, to attendthe school of Dr. Orton,
the then , principal of the. old Academy, under
whose tuition he completed hie acacietaie.'edu
cation. He 'then 'went to Geneva, Nita York,
Where he graduated in 'the same class with
Governor Seymour;; .and (between whom we
understand there has ever existed.the firmest
friendhip. About the year 1828 or '2O Geo.
W. 'Woodward entered upon - the study of law
in tbe office of Garrick -ESq. Upon
the appointment of the latter;gentleman to the
,liidgship of the Northampton district, young
Woodward took Cherie

Was there known a people so. devoted, who
made such sacrifices, submitted to such wrongs,
yet remained so patient as the American peo
ple? Does the administration et 'fail to ap
preciate this? or do they perhaps fully appre
ciate it and presume too much on it
In all directions, from all parties, the cry
comes up-.7-"lYhat do the administration
mean ?" The journals of every party write
in remonstrance. Even the N. Y. Tones, the
steadfast apologist hitherto for every act of
the administration in the interest of radical
ism, is compelled to yield before the popular
sentiment which sweeps through all classes'of
citizens, and one voice from all parts of the
land fiddresees itself in Warning tones to the
President of the United States. The hour is
one of the most memorable in our national
history. It isio party voice, no political clap
trap, no cry of demagogues which now' goes
forth; it is but the utterance of a free people,
united- in sentiment, united in defence of an
cient principles of liberty, of which we, before
all nations on earth, are the defenders. For
onte the administration' bas gaited the North;
and' they , agree. Party differences 'ianish in

HUSBAND CATCHING.-011 a certain divine
an anecdote is'told which ,Heok_ueed to say
exceeded any specimen:of tObl assurance that
he had seen exhibited. A young clerical of
his, staying at a friend's / 1 9 1 M, -happened to
be sitting up one night reading, after the fam
'ily, as he supposed, had retired to rest. The
door opened and his excellent hostrepppeared
in his dressing gown and slippers.
"My dear boy," said the latter, Heating him
self, and looking pathetically at his guest, "I
have a few words to say, don't look alarmed,
they will prove agreeable enough to yau, rely
upon it. The fact is, Mrs.—and Myself
have observed the particular attention which
you have paid to Betsey. We. eau mete every
allowance, knowing your excellent principles
as we do for the diffidence which has hitherto
tied yciur tongue, but it has been carried far
enough. In a worldly point of view, Betsey of
course might do better, yet we all have the
highest esteem for your character and disposi

to us. and when her happiness is at stake, all
minor considerations must give way. We have
therefore after due deliberation, I must own not
altogether without hesitation, .nutele up our
mind to the match. What must be must be;
you are a worthy fellow, and, therefore, at a
word, you have our free will and consent. Only
make our child happy Wad we ask no more."
The astonished divine, half petrified, laid
down his book.
"My dear, sir !" he began to murmur, "there
is some dreadful mistake. I really never
thought of this, I never intended."
"No, no, I know you did not. Your modes
ty is one of those traits which has made, you
so deservedly a favorite with us all. But my
dear boy, a parent's eyes are chary. Anxiety
sharpens them. We saw well enough what
you thought so well concealed. Betsey, too, is
just the girt to be won. Well, well, say no
more about it ; it's. all over now. God' bless
you both l Only make her a good husband—
