By a notice in our paper of to-day, of the
Democratic Standing Committee, it will bo
tccn that a County Meeting is to be held in
this town, on the 10th of August. As eve
ry democrat should tuko an interest in the
primary arrangements for the" fall election,
:mi r.s su meets ot a mini t' lmnnrtani nature
to the wellfarc of lliu party, will probably
come before the meeting, wo hope to sec a
general attendance.

The " Berwick Sentinel" is out against
the removal, and in favor of tho re-election
of Maj. Colt. We think ho will find it
rather an uphill business to sustain him in
tho upper section of the county, at least.
The people have too much at stake to elect
a man-this fall who is decidedly hostile to
their interest; and besides, a large. majority
of the democracy of the county arc anti
bank and anti-corporation men, and have no
Idea of having a hank, or a stock-jobbing
corporation in every nook and corner of the

council. If 1C7 is more 225; and if no ex
perience 13 belter than long experience,
then it i3 perfectly fair and honorable in a
public '.fr-srlo disfranchise a portion of the
county, to gratify personal hostility.

The agitation of the removal question, as
was to bo expected, has created quite a sen
sation nmong the Danvlllo interest, and thoy
are at their old tricks again, to " divide,"
aud by that means " conquer." To effect
this, their game lias heretofore been to
bring into tho controvcrcy, somo extrane
ous mailer, wholly irrelevant, to prevent a
united action, and a fair expression, of the
people of the county, upon " this exciting
question." And, if I am to judge from tho
tenor of a communication in a lato Berwick
Sentinel, the same game is to be played at
the approaching trial of strength, with less
scrupulousness, if possible, than heretofore.
This writer, over the signature of " Epis
copus," asks " Is lhi3 the proper time" for
the question to be brought before the peo
ple? and then very gravely answers, " It is
not." This is such an answer as I should
of cocrso expect from a man living in Dan
ville, or from one of their "hired scriblers,"
whose interest it is never to have the ques
tion agitated at all, much less at tho present
limp, when the minds of the people are so
much " excited" tpon the subject as they
nrc now. It is not only not die " proper
lime" now, but the " proper lime" never
will arrive with them, because they well
know that if the question was fairly brought
before the people, it would be decided
against them by more than three to one in
tho county. It therefore remains with the
friends of the removal to decide when is the
" proper time" that this " filthy business,"
as H is styled by " Episcopus," should be
agitated. When done, I can assure the ed
itor of the Sentinel," and " Episcopus"
too, that it will be neither a "useless," nor
a " filthy business" on tho part of the
friends of the removal, unless they use the
same weapons of misrepresentation and de
ception, as those used by their opponents,
and adopt tho same method of hiring tools
to advocate their cause.
Of the far-fciched simple idiotic story of
the wiiler about the next candidate for Con
gress, I know nothing mid care less. The
election nf member of Congress has nothing
to do with the removal question at this time,
and more than that, the i.ext candidate com
ing from Luzerne, we are bound to sustain
whoever the democracy of that county shall
present to us for our support; and whoever
they do regularly present to us, will bo uni
tedly sustained by the parly here. If I am
riijht as to the gentleman referred to by "E
piscopus," I believe he once did act side by
side with him in the federal ranks, but unlike
him, has left the party, not for the sake of
office, but in sincerity and truth. He now
acts, and has for ears, with tho democrats,
and is now the particular favorite and right
waupporter of tho exclusive friends of
" Episcopus" in Luzerne, and should he
be brought forward as a candidate for Con
gress, it will bo through their aid and coun
tenance. Thus much for " Episcopus' "
fears on this head. Hij .insertion that the
removal parly wish to diido the democrats
is equally unfounded. So fir from it, we
are anxious 10 unite the party, by putting
this " exciting question," which has al
ways had more or less to do with every
election since tho organisation of thu conn
ry, at rest. And there is no other way lo
do this, but to effect ihe removal, Thi
done, and the party is united, and all the
arts of the Danvlllo interest cannot again
disturb its harmonious action.
I now come to tho question, " IB THIS
THE PROPER TIME ?" and I affirm,
without hesitation, that " IT IS." All
real friends ot the removal, will give the
same answer. Why not ? Are wo hot
now menaced by two projects for divisions
of the county, which, if cither were effected,
would take off a portion of the county, that
will eventually be the richest and most pop
ulous part i And is not the Danville inte
rest aiding and abetting in these schemes ?
And arc not the surrounding counties alike
convulsed to ihe very centre, with similar
projects ? all of which would to put at
rest by tho courts of this county being re
moved to the- Centre. Such aro tho facts.
Then why fchould we delay? Why should
we put oil' ihe trial to a more " convenient
season;" or, until the Danville interest shall
say " iioto is the timcV Tho horso will
then bo stolen, and it will not be of any
use to lock the stable. Tho county will
then bo cut op and destroyed, for much
r.uher would the anti-removal party hate
this done, than that tho courts should be re
moved from their present location. They
care not for the interest of the county, or of
the democratic party, any farther than the
advancement of their own personal interest.
Cvery act of theirs for years show it, and
particularly those within the last few months
prove it. They have done all they could to
excito angry feelings in the party,and when
ever they could give a afah at the removal
causc.Jthcy hesitated not, They never stopt
to enquire, Is this the proper lime ?" and
that too, during the past year, in defiance
oflheir sacred pledge that nothing should
be done that should in the least have a bear
ing upon this " exciting question." I say
then, " NOW is the lime," " now is the
day of salvation." The county is threaten
ed with a division that will eventually take
place unless a removal is eflccled. Our
limits aro already sufficiently contractsd
and were ifje Courts removed to the Centre,
no county in tho Stale would bo more con
veniently situated for doing their county
business; but as it is, none arc more wick
edly and basely imposed upon, and none
labor under greater inconveniences.
I say then, lo the true and real friends of
the removal, go ahead in the righteous cause
of asserting and maintaining your rights. Let
none of the far-fetched and cunningly de
vised fables of your opponents divide your
ranks, or enfeeble your acts bo united and
harmonious in your action and my word
for it, you will comeolf victorious.
The Register man calls upon the whigs
of Sugarloaf to disavow the authorship of
my communication published in your last,
and calls it "calumncy" fdr a whig to be de
nominated a removal man. No doubt he
considers it so when applied to himself; but
the whigs generally in this portion of the
county, do not think it such a " filthy bu
siness," I would advise the certificate men
to give us the veal name of iho Register's
eorrespoadent, before they attempt to aseci
tain mine. If they, or the Register, will

Fitty Ykaiss Aoo. In these degenerate
days it is sometimes useful to review the
past and compare the present with our for
mer state. A fiiend has handed us a file of
the " New Haven Gazette, aud Connecticut
Magazine," for the year 1787, published
by Joseph Meigs, lormerly Professor ol
Mathematics in Yale College which con
tains a great many curious rcniinhcouces.
Among others we observe the following.
" A healthy, strong and active Negro
Boy, about 1 1 years of ago. Inquire of
the Printer."
" A likely young Necro about 18 years
of age. He is banged for no fault, but for
want of employ, and lo preserve him from
the greater evil of being sold as a slave
for life."
