This gentleman, it will he seen by the Election
Return! in another column, has been (Jtlu.ited for
the, Legislature. His defeat was accomplished
by the defection of certain domocruls in tlie re
moval district! vf Columbia county, who un
suspectingly, although against our strong remon
strance, played into the hand of that notorious
and perlideous vcamp, "Valentine lk'st, the Sen
ator of violated I'ledges,"and his associate in the
lower section of the county, and who no have
the satisfaction of witnessing the defeat of the
regular nominee of the Democracy of Columbia.
We have the consolation of knowing that our own
court wis strictly correct, throughout, and we
wish Felly Bent great jny with his new associates.
Mr. McKeynolds now occupies, higher ground
with the Kkmoval Democracy, than he ever
did before lii position is even enviable and we
are informed, although we have not teen In in
since the election, that when he heard the result,
heprmiplly remarked, he had rather be the de
feated nominee of the Democratic, party.than suc

V. IS- Palmer's Register.
Col. V. II. Palmer, the cnterpriztng
lNewspaper and Advertising Agent.iti Phil
adelphia, has issued the first number of a
business newspaper, under the above tide,
M he published alternately in Philadelphia,
New York, Boston and Baltimore. Its
object is to afford a cheap and useful me
dium of communication, as we have truly
found the "Register and Spirit of the Press"
to be, and c mimend it to general favor and
wish Mr. P., success with the cnterprize.
Editors who send him their papers, are re
xjtusted hereafter, to address "Palmer's

of this excellent newspaper, last week re
tired from the establishment, having been
"seized by the California fever." Rev.
Titos. F. Nonius, the paragon of newspa-
per-editors who continues to preside at the
lielm editorial, has bestowed upon his bite
efficient c eague n parting, a high and
handsome commendation. May our bles

and we long enjoy the rich satisfaction of
regularly perusing the unique pages of that
paper of papers, the Olive Branch.

We arc pleased to announce that a new
Volunteer Company, under the name of the
" Cohiiirbui Artillerists,'" was organized by
Brigade Inspector tSeely, on the 22nd of
September, at Light Street, in Columbia
county. It is a largo company, composed
of active ab'e-bodied young men, number
ing near fifty rank and file. The follow
ing gentleman were elected officers ;
Capt. A. W. McDowell,
Lieut, sr., H. C Ilower,
Lieut jr., Theodore McDowell,
We again ask our jiub ic-spiiited young
men of Bloomsburg, i f i lie y will not engage
in a similar cnterprize? Surely, two or
three such companies ought to be organi
zed at our County Seat, and we are author
ised ti say that (Sen. McDowell and Maj.
Seely will cheerfully lend lh';ir aid and as
sistance. Who will move in the matter ?
Never court the favors of the rich, by flitterinp
ither tueir vniij or tbeir vices.
The election being now over, wa must
turn our attention more particularly to lit
erature, and questions of principle, policy
and expediency, And by the way, spea
king upon this subject, let us say to the
many readers of our county, who do not
now take any paper, that there can be no
more desirable time than the present, lo
euhscribe for the "Columbia Democrat."
We know there are many readers and
voters, who at all limes eschew politics,
and full a repugnance to a merely political
paper now therefore is the time fir them
to become patrons, and they will most as
suredly never regret it.
But this is wandring from the subject
upon which we commenced to write, to
wit, low PostageA notion was made at
the last session of Congress to have a still
further modification of the postage laws,
(or the accommodation of the reading and
writing public and it is to be hoped that
at this session wise counsel may prevail.
Governments are instituted among men,
not for the benefit ofihifew, but for the
"greatest good to the greatest number."
The people therefore, who are -either ben
efited or cursed, according as governments
arc eood or bud ; have the right lo demand
alterations and reforms whenever any one
thing becomes a grievanceoris susceptible
The laws regulating postage, it is ac
koowledged.are defective in many respects,
and the convenience of the People requites
that they be modified. We will not at
tempt to instruct Congress in their duty,
nor try to invent any system ; but we
would like to see some sensible and def
inite action on the subject. We are incli
ned to believe that more revei.ue will ac
cure from lowering the postage than othcr-wise-and
in regard to newspapers, there is
much hardship endured.
Whenever any body comes to you with
a story concerning some body or any
thing, and prefaces it with the stereotyped
phrase, "An soy," you may rest assured,
that, nine times out often, that report, re
mark or story, is a lie. We have generally
found, that those busy-bodies, who make
a practice of telling all sorts of flying re
ports, good, bad and indifferent, are either
persons of no character at all, or one of
the most reckless kind, caring neither for
themselves nor for any one else, and de
tailing, with addition, every thing calcula
ted to i-jure.
It may perhaps be said, that as a gener
al thing, many of these "They says," are
not exactly, in the common acceptation of
that term, people of a malevolent and mischief-making
disposition, but that they are
merely carrying out a particular trait of
their character, and indulging in a natural
desire to talk. But whether malevolent or
not, it is always best to avoid such people,
as they are eternally getting one into
scrapes, which if not injurious. are extreme
Of a'l things, beware of reports and re
porters, not excepting even newspaper re
porters, as a glance at some journals will
readily prove. It always is their business
to make the most of all things; and they
tare most generally individuals of fertile and
j prolific imaginations.
But we say dont believe them. When
the author of a report must be suppressed,
there can be no doubt there is some thing
wrong in "Denmark." No story, true in
all its parts, need be prefaced with "they
say." Let those who know it, report it
boldly, or keep it an entire secret. We
could bring some illustrations of this sub-
iject, did we deem it at all necessary. No
every man will readily apply it for
