in regard to the character of some of tbo

After the announcement or tbo committee
by '.hc chair, public notice was givcn.or tbo

were invited to attend. No particular in

nor ct'c is on like occasions, but all attend

bers, adopted, and the chairman directed to

resolutions in committee, introduced a writ
ten resolution handed to hint by another
person and moved Ha adoption. Hu goon
discovered, however, ihat it would be voted
down, and he adopted the old tnaxiins that
"discretion is the belter part or valor," and
that be who runs away, livos to fight anoth-
day," withdrew it. This is tba history or
the ro3olution. And for ibis iho meeting,
composed of several hundred democrats, a
majority of whom wero his immediate
neighbors, are denounced as any thing, bat
honest and honorable men. And ho does
not stop here. Ho anatbemetiscs Gov.
Porter, the attorney general ind one or thn
canal commissioners, as if they, an bund
red niilcs.distant, wcio the instigator of a
measure adopted by the democracy of Co
lumbia comity, at a momenta warning.
Hut who is this consistant, long tried,
and self devoted democrat? Let us en
quire. The firt that is known of him as a
political aspirant, was in the days- of Wm,
Findly, applying for an office and icai dis
appointed. The next wo bear of him ia in
opposition to the re-clveiion of Gov. Find
ley, advocating tbo election of Ilicsler tbo
federal candidate. Ileister succeeded and the
Doctor obtained an ofiice.thronh the basest
nf mevmR' by trcaclierr and Ihe botravinir
of confidence. lie was hired to go to Harris-
burg to obtain an appointinont for a poor and
decrippod friend bo turned traitor, abused
and slandered bim, and got the office for
himself. Ho next supported Grc-'i', the
federal candidate in opposition to Sbultz.
and, as every apostate should do. lost bit
office, upon the election of Shultz. IIo
nest turns bis attention to hid own coiintv
to measure bis popularity here. 15v trick-
cry and deception ho succeeded in getting
the nomination Tor assembly, but wa.i de
feated by a largo majority, by a volunteer
candidate. The next year the result was
the same. IIo iheit succeeded in m-Kiiir
himselfappointed Post .Master at Dan
villo. Four years since a member of Congress
wao to beeltctcd from this district. Ho
waa ajaiu an aspirant. Rut be and Valen
tine Deal had ben at war, because their,
interest clashed.and he must be conciliated.
What was lo be done. The lJ83t Master
ship was offered as a bonus, and accepted
the banns of matrimony pronounced, and
these ii';i brothers went into ihe action
with their sleeves rolled up.and their " ron-
Hcietic.es thrown to the devil." Ha succeed
l:1 by a small majority, but by whatbaso ami
itn?reuitai)!e means u known to all. And if
there is ono political sin of ours, that will
rife up in judgement against u at the great
day, iu that of having assisted to place him
in a station which be has disgraced. Two
years since, he -'was again a candidate, and
as an cvidenco of hi popularity in the coun
ty, ha received SG'J vote.1 Jessi than Gov.
Porter and 101 less than .Msj. Ci.'i, who
was a candidate on the saoio ticket for the
legit-lator. In Mahoning, the township in
ivlnnli ilif nml !f:i!. drill t-AKiili-a. tint! u-!irn
thuy are both known, he received 43 voles J
less than Uot. i us is his popularity at
home. And what is bis position now ?
live: since tbo election of our present wor
thy democratic. Gov. Jhuid If. Potter, ho
has been his most outrageous villifier,
both iu public and private, and for no other
reason, than because Gov. Porter would
nofhflar to him, in his appointment of Ca
mil ( .iiiiitltfinlniinra 'I'litu -ihncn lin b.u
racts,' with ttie still further knowledge fhal,
ho was enrsirig $e whole domoctalic party,
while he was courting favor with the feder
alists, that tbo rpsolutipn rei'erred.too was
deservedly ecouicii out of the meeting.
This is the man who is arrogating to him
seir tbo right of dictating to the democracy
ol Columbia counly a man who is, at this
day heart and soul with the Whigs, iu their
opposition lo the re-eieclion of David II.
Porter, and who is now, and has been for a
year past, endeavoring to dovide and dis
iran the democratic party of this county,
that he may gratjfy the bsso feeling which
bu has hugged to Jiis bosom with as much
tenacity as he dOos bis life Revenge by
defealing'tho re-election of Gov. Porter.

GREAT NATIONAL CALAMITY.
Wo learn by an Extra issupd by tbo hou.
duel, david petiikin, dated at Danville, the
-Mill inst., that "the hand of aihViion has
been laid heavily" upon ibis ga-at cham
pion oj democracy and disinterested patri
ot, and that be has endured "a week of in-
lorise.tiouiiy sutlcnng." Ob ! what a les
son to the world is this. Called at any
time, iu any country, to view tbo sufforincs
of even the most humble individual, in nain
lul, but when we see, in the vicissitude" and
dealings of Providence, one, like the great
objector, whoso voice but late in the coun
cils of a great republic, was accustomed to
" cut off every thing," confined for a whole
week to his room, ii- melanchotly in the ex
treme. But wo forbear dwelling upon this
mournfully painful subject. Wo wish not
to excite a nation to tears, nor give unneces
sary pain, and if we have now, led by our
own feelings, moved your bvmpaiby, sup
press that hearing bosom, and dry your fal
.ling tears, for this c,eat, good, mild, ami
able, honest, man. All, is not vet lost
The Doctor is not dead. True, lie savs tba

cioss men are notdangerous.bo true we think
he will yet bo spared as a living monument
of some kind for tho people. He promi
ses, " ir it docs please Providence" to per
mil him " once more to bo able to wield his
bis pen," mark the characteristic exoras-
sinn " to wield his pen," that ho will lake
occasion to address you frequently. Oh !
