THE COLUMBIA DEMOCKAT.
"TnnTU without nun "
S.lTUUUJir, AUGUST, 1838.
FOR GOVEimqU :
GEN. DAVID U. POUTER,
(OF HUNTINGDON COUNTY.)
The Democratic Electors of Columbia
County, will meet at their respective places
of holding the General Elccliqn, on SAT
URDAY, the fir3t day of September ensu
ing, betweon the hours 'of 3 and G o'clock
in the afternoon, and elect TWO DELE
GATES, in each election district, to meet
at the house of Ea,nlcl Gross, in Blooms
burg, on Monday, the 3d day of September,
to form a Ticket to bo supported by the
Democratic party at the ensuing General
WM. J. IKELER,
July 30, 1838.
You will gratffy a wish expressed by
many of your friends in this section, if you
vill publish tho name of SEBASTIAN
IIOWER, of this township, as a candidate
for Auditor of Columbia county, lie is a
democrat of the old school, and every way
qualified for the station, and if nominated,
will no doubt be elected.
; I have been requested by many of the
friends of WILLIAM J.lKELER.of Mount
Pleasant, to bring his name before the pub
lie, .as a candidate for Commissioner of this
county. Mr. Ikclei is a decided and linn
democrat, and if nominated and elected,
will look well to the interests of the county.
Tho Danville Intelligencer mentions the
name of JEREMIAH WELLH I ill', of
'Madison, as a candidate for the office of
Treasurer of Columbia county, which
makes the list of names already brought
forward to bo presented to the democratic
county convention, stand thus :
Assembly ISAIAH SAtMON,
EZRA S. HAYHURST,
Commis'er WM. COLE,
WILLIAM J. IKELER,
Treasurer WM. S. DAVIS,
Auditor SEBASTIAN HOWER,
In the above list, we have omitted the
names of the whig candidates, John Bow
man, for Assembly, arid John Laubauch,
for Commissioner", riot considering them to
have any claim to a station on the list of
candidates to bo presented to a democratic
convention for nomination, , In doing so,
avc do not wish to cast any reflections on
those who " do not publish both sides," nor
upon the gentlemen named, but we cannot
admit the right of the whig Register to en
ter tho name of any gentleman, on our list
of candidates for nomination froni a dcirio
ctatic convention. They must come in at
some other door to entitle them to a scat at
The Jlpprattclilafc EUcthn.
" Union and harmony," should bo our
watch-wordjand if adhered to in good faith,
iiiero cannot be a doubt of the triumphant
success of the Democratic parly in this
county, and Congressional district, at the
coming election. Tho names of several
gentlemen have already been brought for
ward for tho consideration of the county
convention, with strong claims for nomina
tion to the various ofiiccs of the county,
and from present appeaianccs, the list will
be swelled much larger, before the time for
, action shall arrive; so that every office to
bp. voted for by tho people, will have inoro
lan one democratic claimant for nomina
tion by the convention. It is the duty then,
of tho democratic party to freely, frankly
auc kindly to discuss, tna claims of the va
rious candidates for nomination) with a view
ol inal.it .nun," (hat harmony among the
tarty in our local elections, which nppran
to prevail, to such nn eminent degree, in re-
ation to our candidate for Governor. One
of the fundamental principles of our party is,
that every individual has a right to have
his claims for support to an office presented
to the proper ordeal, and, therefore, no one
member of the jparly has any right to
claim that his name, and his only, shall
be presented to the nominating convention,
to the exclusion of all others. There is
'no man neither, without friends, and It cer
tainly cannot advance Hie intciest of one
eandid'dto to embitter the friends of tho
other, by using language towards them or
him, that is calculated to irrritatc or wound
the feelings. If this is done, and persisted
in, it certainly cannot bo expected that, that
union and harmony" will prevail in our
nominations, which is Co much desired by
every true democrat at the present "moiricn
tious period of our political affairs. We
must begin right if we would end right.
Wo must maintain aicciprocity of good feel
ing before, as well as after, the nominations
are made, if wo would wish to preserve our
ranks unbroken, and present a bold front to
our enemies in the general battle-field. Sc
far as we can learn, this is (lie dctcrniina
tion of our democratic brethren throughout
the county, and that every attempt, let .it
come from quarter it may, to disturb this
good feeling to distract or create uisaciv
lions in the party or to prevent a fair and
unbiased expression of tho people, cither in
their primary assemblies, or at tho county
convention, will be discountenanced and re
eeivc tliat rebuke which it will so justly
merit. Should this determination be car
ricd it'ito effect, and we trust it will, we have
no hesitation in saying, that whatever tick
et is fairly formed by tho nominating con
volition, will be elected by an overwhelm
ing majority. , . , . .

For fear that tho people of Columbia
county should not have tho plcasuro of
reading the subjoined precious article, pub
lished in the last Register, wo extract it in
to our paper. 'Tis seldom we have an op
poi'tuhity of giving circulation to an article o
such real excellence. Unfortunately the ta
lents and tastes of some men arc hidden un
der a bushel, and it a only tinder peculiar
circumstances that they are brought to light.
When they are, they should bo prized tho
more highly. What a pity it is that ibc
Register has not a more extensive circula
tion, as such articles, written with such a
spirit, would have more effect to advance
the election of David R. Porter, than all that
could be said in his favor by his friends.
Who is there that can read this extract
without having the nobler passions of the
soul assume tho ascendency, and rejoice
that wo have one editor in Columbia coun
ty who is the paragon of refined taste and
exquisite feeling 1 But to the extract :
