Mr. mm, ,
In looking over your last paper I'find to
my astonishment that the name of JOHN
LAUBAUGH, of Sugarloaf, has not been
named by any member of the democratic
part', as a candidate for Commissioner, he
being, in my opinion, from tho long
quaintance I have had with him, a worthy
democrat, and, if elected, will perform the
duties of tho office with fidelity.

The latt Humbug,
lcr-Ritner party call upon the democrats of
Columbia county, who arc in favor of a
sound currency, and opposed to all the mad
schemes of this piebald party, water' Works
and all, to meet them in county convention
to form a 'county ticket. Whew. You
must call again " before you catch 'cm."
It is truly laughable to hear the whigs
talk about " Unparrallcled effrontery and
villainy" of i1ks democratic-party in attack
ing the character of Samuel Sturgeon, of af-
fadavit memory. They, who have do
scended to all tho low, base, vulgar slang
over retailed by a street scavenger, to de
stroy the reputation of D. tR. Porter they
who Itaye retailed, time and .again," ' that
which they knew to be . false, and that the
man who had sworn to itj - was a " pcijurcd
villain'.' to talk about " unparrallcled ef
frontery." "0 shamojwhere is thy blush!"
The whig-county convention will be ra
ther a slim affair if none other attend but
democrats who are in favor of the re-elec
tion of Joseph Jtitner. They are not to be
found, gchtlcmeni' Change your address if
you wish any member to attend. Direct
your notice to the federalists they are. the
only electors in this county that will an
swer such a call. ' ' "
If the Register man has no other evidence-'
of an increase of his subscription list than a
decrease of ours, he has no very flattering
hopes of an extensive citculation; & if lie has
any desire for an increase, we think it would
tc much more to his crcditand advantage.to
abstain in future from advising his particu
lar 'friends to make use of" hydraulic pow
er" td insult and abusp their neighbors who
assemble for civil amusement, and-maltreat
strangers who may tarry-in town over night,
and make use of the same power to wash
his own concern, inside and out, of the
filth that has been collecting-m and around
I it, for years. " A word to the wise is suf
ficient, but the fool profitcth not."
A fcw,days since wo asked a Ritncr man
from- Muncy, if the late visit of Gov. Rit-
ner had made him any new friends in that
neighborhood. ' No," said he, " if he had
kept away he would .have received more
votes Ulan he will now."
The farmers of Columbia oounty want
two things 1st Rain 2d, David RvPor
ter for Governor. The first, we hope they
will have soon. The second they will as
suredly have on the second Tuesday of
October. No mistake.
A report is circulated by the , Ritnerilcs
that David R. Porter will be withdrawn
from the contest before the October election.
Wo were not surprised to hear this silly
story from them, as wo were prepared for
any story that can be invented by man, that
would tend to injure Porter's election. But.
all will not do. Dayid R. Porter will re
main on the cqurse, and completely distance'
his competitor.-" . " "
Wc learn that a very numerous ana ani
mated Democratic Uounly meeting was
held at Wilkesbarre, Luzerne county, on
Tuesday last. George W. Woodward,
Esq. and Dr. .Andrew Bedford, were ap
pointed Congressional Conferees to meet
the Conferees from this county.
Wc last week mentioned a report of the
" insolvency otthe llarnsuurg, l'ortmouth
and Lancaster Rail Road Company." Wo
are happy to bo enabled to contradict the
report on the authority of a letter received
by a gentleman in town, from the cashier
of the Bank of Middletown, who says, that
the shinplasters of the above corporation
aro' received in payment at that institution,
and that the report of its insolvcpey is un

For some weeks past we have been in
the receipt of the " Spirit of the Times,"
an -ably conducted daily democratic paper
published in the city of Philadelphia, and
within a week past wo were much gratified
with the anncsrance of n weekly sheet
from the samo office. It is a largo sheet,
neatly printed on good paper, and well fill
cd with Interesting matter, both political and
miscellaneous. We cheerfully recommend
it to the patronage of our democratic, breth
ren who may wish to procure a weekly po
litical paper from tho city. Wo publish
tho prospectus in another column.

A QUEER CONTROVERSY
Is'now going on between Joseph Rilncr
and his- friends. 1 hp Governor wants to
be an abolitionist, but his friends, finding
how unpopular this dark subject is, wont
let him. He says he is an abolitionist, but
his friends wont believe him, and say he is
not. At last wrathy beyond farther endu
ranee, he writes to his Pittsburg abolition
friends, that lie IS an abolitionist : and for.
proof refers them to his abolition message
of 1830, '37, assuring them that his opin
ions have undergone NO CHANGE ! !
Still his friends wont believe him, and con'
tend that his Exellency LIES. -.
