LEVI r.. TATK. EDITOR.
OCT. C, 1840.
FOR CANAL COMMISSIONER,
JNo: A. GAMBLE,
OF LYCOMl.VO COUNTY :
Columbia County VomlnaCloHg.
We intended two week! ago, and have been
deprived I lie opportunity, until now, of paying
our respects to tha Patrons of the Columbia
Democrat ! The remark we design nuking
must nuw be brief. Spare and (into with us are
Over two and a half years hive expired since
we assumed the proprietorship of this Demo
crat. When we purchased it of the Ute Col.
Webb, iti weekly circulation consisted of fourteen
quires, aud it is now our good fortune to see that
edition increased to thirty one quires more than
doubled, with a corresponding increase of adver
ting and jobbing patronage. In khort, our busi
ness was never equal to i's present run, ar.d we
have on!y to thank our friends and the democracy
of Columbia, for the liberal patronage with which
we have been favored, and we arc picud to ay,
thai patronage was never more profusely bestow
ed than it has been within the last few months.
We shall labor hcnce-forwaid to merit the ap
probation of our ft How citizens. To a grateful
mind this alone is the highest award. Long may
we enjoy the pleasing associations which now
surround us, and of which, we are profoundly
IJccnocrats, to your Posts."
It is expected that every Democrat will
d ) his duty at coming clcciion. Let no one
conclude that he has no influence, and that
Ii is vote cannot affect the general result.
Your vole and your influence may turn
the scale and elect the whole ticket ? Let
every voter remember this.
Every Vote Counts.
Do not forget, Democrats, that it is nncessary
t'i be out in all yunr etrength on Tuesday next,
because we have a Slate candidate to vote for.
The Democrat in anti-masonic Lancaster, in fede
ral Somerset, or incorporation-ridden Allegheny,
is as poweil'nl to do i!io:l lor the Stale candidate
astae Democrat!! in DcmoTati': berks, Columbia,
or Westmoreland. Hiiii", IVre is dancer that
in heavy Democratic counties ihe Democrats may
retniiii at home, in the beliel that iheir votes aie
tii't necessary. There could he no more fatal de
lusion than this; and we trust they will appre-
-i itn die importance ul being at the polls in lorce I
on Tuesday next.
liVirtf think you, Volunteers t
Can any of you vote for IIknry M. Fuli.kr,
Whiy candidate foi Canal Commissioner, who
ai a member cf (he Legislature, either di-dged the
question, or refused to vote at all on two impor
tant questions allecling the heroes of the Maxican
War. We allude to "an act for the relief of the
pj.iiisvlvania Volunteirs" see page No. 224 of
the House Journal. See also 310 same Jaurnal,
for a resolution "firanting gold medals to the of
fi 'ers and soldiers of the Mexican War." His re
fusal to vole on these questions is, to be sure, in
character wilh his Whig affinities for Mr F. is
identified wi h the party that opposed the war in
which many of these heroes fought and fell but
it is nut of place entirely, yea it is downright im
pudee in him now lo come forward and solicit the
voles of anyof those b.-ave men who perilled their
ives in 'hat nlorious war, or their friends, in the
ery far. f his opposition to their interests at the
if session of our Slate Legislature.

Our Waily Wail.
We are gratified I" h am by Mr. Chcrnberliii,
our Post-master here, that the Department at
Wash;nt 1.1, have at length established a Daily
Mail fiom Fountain Springs lo Blnomsburg

Liltle Reuben, through Lit last week's Star,
appropriated to us over a column of twallle, under
the above caption, We have denominated his
bantling twatlle, and such it truly is, without
point, in orcomliness. He h.ii perhaps made
the best of a bad cause a desperate case and as
such we are willing it should pass for whut it is
When a man embarks upon the boisterous waves
of public lite, w ilhout tact, talent, or experience,
ami ushers himself forth as dictator-general to the
public, for (ho avowed purpose of obtaining "po
liiicil distinction" in tho world, tiius exposing
his frail bark to the brakein and the breeze, de
void of mast or ruddr he must be fortunate in
deed if he steer clear of either the quick-sands or
the rocky-shoaU. Keuben has already experien
ced nne or the other of these reverses of fortune,
incident to maturer at;e and abler hands, and
strange to tell yet survives the wreck of time and
the crush of blasted hope. But it may be even
with Reuben, that in the hours of his deepest ad
versify, he finds consolation in I lie effusions of
one similarly situated, when he tang his own
" feel like one who treads alone
Some banquet-hall deserted ;
Whose lights are fled, w hose garlands dead,
And all but me departed."
We are free to confess w e deplore Reuben's case.
Knowing him to be an ambitious, impertinent and
presumptuous youth, we could have wished him
a bt Iter lot in life than his own indiscretion lias
assigned him. Still, if he has not prospered in
lite, and rose in the scale of political distinction,
the failure is neither owing to his own native
modesty, or to our want of Iriendly notices of his
Reuben intimates that we adverted ungenerous
ly to his diminitive sialure. It wo did we beg
pardon, as we are always mindlul of small matters.
An I preferring at all times, to level up rather
than down, we would help him to this argument,
the (ruth of w hich we hope he can realize
"Though nature hath denied me
A high and lofty meiu,
Yet it hath supplied me
With feelings warm and keen."
This stair, i however, is applicable only to per
sons possessed of liberal minds and expanded in
tellect. It Reuben is one of them, them it meets
his case, but if not, why like the Frenchman, he
was never "made for de pantaloon,"
That our worthy neighbor of the Star, has nol
arrived at greater notriety in the annals of fame,
is nol, we suppose, because he, has dodged any
opportunity of completing his distinction.

From the above statement it w ill be seen that
the increaso revenue arising from our public im
provements over last jear, is Sixty five thousand
three hundred and tixty ergif dultan and nine
ty cents!! Yet w ilh this fact staring them in
the face, these contemptible demagogues are try
ing to make the people believe, that the Tariff of
1S40 is ruining the interests of Pennsylvania.
We ask all honest and candid men tu look at this
statement, and then say what they think of the
leaders of the Whig party.

paring the result ol die elections which have ta
ken place this year, with Taylor's vote of last

We hineeroly regret, says tho Ilarrisburg
Keystone, to see a disposition manifested
by some of both polieal parties, to make
political capital out of the question of eoni-
j pletillg the North liranch canal. Tor our
selves.we cannot perceive how cither party
is to gain any thing by this course. In the
region of tho slate imiiicdidutely interested,
the whole community, democrats and fed-
1 era isis, are in lavor 01 tne completion ol

friends. Tlirouhout tho whole state, there
are many individuals, of both parties, who
have taken tho pains to make themselves
acquainted with its value and importance,
who are irrespective of any party consider
ation, its decided friends.
In some regions of the ttate, the masses
are indiflerent, have manifested no feeling
on the subject and are entirely willing that
their representatives shall exercise a sound
discretion in regard to it. In others, es
pecially in the orginal anti-iniprovement
districs, there is a positive dread of it, irre
spective of any party division, an apprehen
sion of an increase of the slate debt. It is
the result of the flattering reports and es
timates of former times, which led on to an
accumulation of debt, without a realization
of the promises made and hopes inspired.
It is not surprising, therefore, that thure
should be seeptieismand apprension now.at
the idea of a resumption of this work, by
those who are not familar wilh it, and who
have not the facts, within theirown know
ledge, to enable theni to form a satisfactory
judgment for themselves. But, what either
party has to gain by exciting and increas
ing the state of feeling, where it exists irre
spective of party, and in regard to a mea
sure which is stistined without reference
to party, is more then we can perceive. For
ourselves, we sustain the work from a
thorough conviction of ils real merits, and
upon a full knowledge of ils condition, ils
cost, and value when completed.
From about tho commencement of our
internal improvement system, in 1820, the
senior editor of this paper was, for seven
years continuously, a member of the house
of represetatives and senate. During the
whole of which period, he opposed the ex
travagant extension of the system, by un
iformly voting against the commencement
of the branches, and the extension of new
work on any but the main line first, to be
the true po icy of the slate. It is true, af
ter failing to carry the amendments desired,
with one very important exception, he gen
erally voted for the bills ami appropriations
10 carry on the work commenced, until he
left the senate in the spring 0f 1
This allusion to our course at the period
referreJ to,which we hope will be pardoned,
is only made to show that we have never
been of the over sanguine, or ultra school
I ' 'lVCmeit men. The views WC
tertained and ihe part we look doiiiiiT the
time referred lo, will be recollected by the
suiivors of those with whom we were as
soeia'.ed. Nor would we now advocate
the making of the improvement under con
sideration, were it to be eoinenced as a new
work. Hut this is not the case. Nearly

Fpon this subject, as upon many others,
I have my own opinion, and I think the
l'reaehers, as a body of professional men,
with of course many splendid exceptions,
the most ignorant, coneeiled anil egotisti
cal fellows living. Two thirds of them do
not know that there in, or can be, any dis
tinction between their personal and profes
sional character "w ho shall dare, Raid one
of this slripc, to lift his voice agaiu.st one

alter my cogitations ; 1 beg leave to slate
to you briefly, the substance of a Sermon,
I heard on last Fast day. In this sermon,
it was broadly and impiously asserted by
"his rivirinee," that the cholera was a spe
cial judgment, sent by God upon the peo
ple of the United States, on account of
their sins. Whether for those of omission
or commission, whether for running cars
canal boats on the Sabbath, whether for
1 general or special delinquency, the Mex

he did not see fa to inform his very believ

attacks, generally, only those, who, poor,
degraded and miserable, are crowded to

not purchase even the necessaries of life,

their manner of living, taking no care of
