Our brief article of last week, aunouno
ibg tint " The Biilistints tcere upm us,"
lus bad the effect of arrousing the dormant
energies of our Republican neighbors, and
Inciting them to bitter vituperation. Dr.
linowKti, nf the American, does not ap
pear to take it so much to heart as docs the
Sd tor of tho Republican. Perhaps this
may bo accounted for, from the fact, that
tho first named of theso gentlemen, has had
more experience in newspaper-war.'farc,
and licuce, is n it quite bo verdant as his
worthy colleague1 Uut, to the point.
In reference to Dr. Brower's discovery,
that wo bad signed an advertising con
tract for $13, for which ba U to got 831,
per annum, we need only siy, that wo did
no suck thing. Uenco, the bottom has
fallen clean out of his argument. Wo
know nothing of the contract in question,
until we read of it in tho American, nor
have wo over yet seen it, but havo siuco
been informed by tho young men in our
office, that they bad made some such ar
rangement with a stranger last wcek.iu our
Wo admit, that wo are sometimes im
posed upon and make occasional mistakes,
We lay no claim to infalibility. The point
with us was not advertising but tho price
of subscriptions.. W.o join him heartily
on this score, after hearing bis own story,
in the apostrophe of "shoo rats."
As to Dr. John, we are rather sorry, that
our good-natured artielo should hive so
essentially disturbed his risible sensibili
ties. We trust be will survivo the effeots
of tho several shocks bo imagine) ho has
received from our "sky-roclcets,' and be
oome a wiser man and better citizen the
Dr. is a tolorably, clever fellowwith tho
advantages of increasing experience. And
we shall hero only add, that wo sincerely
ihank him for the sonf-ibla conclusion of
his principal paragraph, in which tho pub
lic are advised, to "go over to "Democratic
Head Quarters," and subscribe for ibe
t 'olumbia DemocrtU."
With both of our noighbors, who appear
io understand the main principles of Rat-
tlogy, wc hope tho Convention will "come
on and go off." Whether it will be a rat
affair, with Dr. Joiin, we cannot now tell.
But since lie has announced his determina
tion to attend, it is not uniikely.lhatthege!
uine article maybe seen there with long
tail. The "Press," by Ool. Pornoy.
"The Press," is tho name of tho new
Democratic paper about to be started in
the city of Philadelphia, by Ool. Joun W.
Forney. The first number will be issued
on or before tho first of August, It is
icarccly necessary for us to say, what is
already known, that Col, Forney is one of
tho most ta'ented and vigorous political
-writers of the day, and his ardent devotion
to the -principals of tho Democratic party,
are such as cannot fail to rally around bis
p per hosts of enthusiastic supporters, not
only in J'fcnnsylvania, where be can count
Ilia friends by tens of thousands, but all
over tho Union. Wo with him abundant

"Notes of a Tour."
Wo wcro admirably entertained by our
good friend, Mr. Samuel Kostcnbaudcr,
who keeps an excellent Hotel in tbo ancient
town of Catawissa, and enjoyed for- that
day, tho pleasant company of its social
citiiors. Our next stago was Mainville
familiarly called "Jlcll-lown," but wo
won't call it .by that vulgar designation,
Wo said wo next stopped at Mainville
Thcro wo wcro properly cared for by Mr.
Samuel Andreas, who keeps a Hotel hard
to boat in tho country. Everything about
it is in good order including a full and
plentiful table, with a most accommodating
host and hostess.
Loaving Malnvillo, wo ascended Beaver
Valloy. Our tour was one of business and
recreation, rather than that of leisure and
hilarity ; otherwise wo most certainly
would have paid our respects to 0. Shuman,
Esq., tho King of iho Beavers. As it was,
we bore off East-ward in tho direction of
tho McCauley's Mountain Kaillload Com
pany's works, for tlio purpose of taking a
view of its cxtensivo operations, a brief ac
count of which may bo found below.
Tho McCauley's Mount un Hail Road
intersects tho Cattawissa, Williamspt.rt &
Erie Bail Road, about nine miles cast of
tho town of Cattawissa is about five and
a half miles in length and terminates at
the Coal works of the Columbia Coal and
Iron Company. Tho road will bo com
pleted so that Coal may bo sent to market
over it early in October next. The Com
pany have penetrated tho Coal Basin at
tho bottom by a large and substantial
Tunnel, and havo miners now engaged in
droning gangways on tho Mountain vein.
Their Coal Breaker will bo ready by the
time the road is completed.
Messrs. UuIbwill $ Co., havo hid
out a Town on a beautiful plain at the
base of the Coal Mountain, which from
its looation is destined to bo one of tho
best business-places in 'tlio. Country. A
great number of buildings will be put up

Hero wo spent the evening with our ex

D., who has been located hero for sonic
years past, and we are gratified to learn,
on our entrance into the Valloy, has ac
quired an extensivo custom, and been very
successful in tho practico of his profession.
Note by the way. Dr. Freas' good
luck in life, is partially owing to bis skill
as a Physician, and partly to the fact, that
in the out-set, be had the good senso to ad
vcrtiso in the Columbia Democrat.
Coiiyngham was our next ppint. This
is a pleasant vi lago, about ono mile East.
Wo bad not visited it for near four years,
and whilst wo missed the faces of somo of
its most useful citizens, wo were gratified
to witness many valuable improvements,
and the business-aspect, tho town has as
sumcd. Mr. J, B. Gardner, keeps tho
principal Hotel in Conyngham.
Returning through Sugarloaf and Black
Creek Valleys, generally well cultivated
and highly productive agricultural plains,
we crossed tho mountain to MiiBin, in Col
umbia. Dccending tho west side, in view
of MifBin, with its beautiful mountain
scenery, and well-filled grain fields in tbo

A storm of great violence passed over

of this Borough, was badly damaged. Tho

of tho pews, and tbo church furnituro

church building in our town, nnd has been
in use only about two years, it having been
