Many bf the origirial Antirrfasons, who
were Democrats, having become satisfied
that Ritner has lent hiniSelf to the Federal
ists, will no longer support him. In Rucks
connty alone, nearly one hundred have
publicly acknowledged their return to their
first love. So in oilier counties. The on
ly remaining hope of the whigs hang3 on
what Stevens and Dickey can do in squan
dering the public money, under color of re

he proceedings of a democratic meet-
ing held at Berwick on Saturday last, were
cccivcd too late for publication this week.
They shall appear in our nest.
Amidst the party strife, that is now !roinr
on in this state, permit me to call your at
tention to a subject on which great and
good mon of all parties can unite, I mean
the propriety of forming an Agricultural So
ciety within tho boinuU-r u. .w
TJolurhbia'. 'If is not necessary that I sliduld,
at this time, speak of the utility and benefit
of such a society, when properly managed,
simply in a pbddniriry point of view, nor to
expatiale on the social order and happiness
that would be the consequence, when men
of talents and influence would engage in the
enterprise. This subject is well understood
by reflecting (hinds, and, whoever has the
least acquaintance with the improvements
of the times, must bo awatc that, in the
eastern states, a spirit of enterprise and
praisoworthy emulation has been excited
by Agricultural Societies, in a class of men
whd ere thought beyond the reach of intel
lectual improvement, or beneath the dignity
and notice of men of intelligence.
If I am correctly informed, there is al
ready a society of thla nature in existence,
embracing the counties of Northumberland,
Union and Columbia; but, if it is not alto
gether defunct, still the influence it exerts is
eirtirely impcrceplable. Its boundary is to
laigo and extensive, and large bodies', cither
political or social, arc invariably slow in
their moveriicnls and itulicisivo in ac
tion. The good people of Union county
arc convinced of the truth of this assertion,
and, although they may not have formally
separated from the parent association, still
they have a society of their own, whoso
operations are entirely confined within tho
county. I would, therefore, with tho great
deflerence, invito the citizens of this coun
ty to folldw their praiseworthy example,
and call a public meeting, at a future lime,
in some central place of the county to con
sult on this interesting and important sub
ject, and, if thought expedient, to organizo
"A County Agricultural Society." I
should bo much pleased, if you and somo
of tho most iniluencial citizens of tho. coun
ty, would hold a preliminary meeting and,
subsequently over their signature, fix upon
a day for a meeting of a convention, com
posed of delegates froin all tho townships in
the county for tho purpose of organizing
a Sdciety for tho promotion of Agriculture.'

TO THE PUBLIC.
THROUGH a lingering and irrcmcdid
ble deseaso, my health at length became so
impaired, that t becamo unable to attend to
all the requirements ot mv ollicial duties,
By persualion of my numerous friends,
1 consented at last to kcop an apollioeary
thinking it would be tho most becoming, ea
sicst for mo to cubage in at the present time;
and since (or wntlo) l liavo established a
shop, I would humbly solicit the support of
my mends and the public 111 general, on ac
count of my great sickness. And especial
ly, would I request the merchants of this
place, to civo me all possible chance of sell
ing those articles belonging to my lino of
business, for which they may receive my
sincere thanks. A few article only which
are to be found in my Health Emporium
aro advertised. There will be kept a con
stant supply of such articled a! may be call
ed for; but if per .chance, a call should be
made for such as I am not in possession of
immediate preparation willboinado m order
to obtain them.
Further, do I oarnestty invito Physician
of this place and its vichijly, to give mo a
call, aa I intend to soil very reasonable.
Thoro will bo kept constantly on handf
all kinds of Medicines, Patent and olhors,
warranted to bo genuine. All kinds of
Paints, Glass, Dye-stuff, &c. tc. Also a
variety of ConfoclionarieS, Raisons, Nuts,
Herring, Sugar and AVater Cractcprs, Or
anges, Lemons, Figgs, Prunes, Perfume
ries, Sic, &c. All articles in the Hoalth
Emporium, I intend to sell cheqpQr than
they can be bought at any other plane in 1 tho
county, Youi Fiiond and well wisher.
