It must bo peculiarly gratifying to tho
majority of tho Pennsylvania Delegation,
in tlio De'mocratio National Conrcntiou, to
eco tlio staid ami reliable papers in our
old combionwcalth cordially sustaining
their courbo. Thoso papers which for
tbrco years have battled tlio combined for
ces of Douglas and tlio black republicans,
aro now as then clear and explicit in their
opposition to this now abolitiouizing pro
cess. Thoy havo not forgotten that in 1858
every republican in tho land, proclaimed
himself a Douglas democrat, and aband
oning tho congressional prerogative, asser
ted tho territorial.
If a National Convention had assembled
about that time whilo his apostacy was
recent, and tho republicans loud in their
praises of him, how many votes would ho
have received as a democratic candidate? 1
Not ono I In what particular has Mr.
Douglas changed since then ? What her
esy has ho disavowed ? llo is tho same
man with the sanu sentiments as when ho
led tho black republican cohorts in tho
Senate, as when ho assailed tho positions i
of tho Supremo Court, as when ho pro
claimed that a territorial legislature had
more power than congross itself.
Why thon shall Douglas bo nominated?
Shall John W. Forney avow that ho will
tupport no democratic candidato but Doug
las, ami for what reason 1 Is it becauso
Douglas is a better democrat than any oth
er man, or because John W. Forney is a
worse ono ? No person who has watched
the late course of tlio two men, can fail in
a correct answer to that question.

of tho democratic party is with tho ma

The rcnitsylvanln Delegation at ( liicago
Tho delegates from Pennsylvania to tho
Republican Convention at Chicago wcro
instructed tovoto for Oou. Simon Cameron
and urgo his nomination as tho best cal
culated to carry Pennsylvania. Indeed,
tho Stato Convention that assembled in this
place last February, announced in their
address to tho peoplo of Pennsylvania that
Gen. Cameron was tho only man of all
thoso mentioned for tlio Presidency wh
could unite tho entire body of people oppo
scd to tlio present Administration. It was
announced from tiino to, time that tho vote
of Pennsylvania would bo cast as a unit
for Cameron, and that Pennsylvania was
sincere and determined in demanding his
nomination. Any intimation that the
leaders of the Opposition were only play
ing a selfish part to promote their inter-
cits, and that tho namo of (Ion. Cameron
was used as a cover for ulterior operations
and dosigm, was always repelled with in
diguation. To all appearances tho news
papers that talked Cameron meant Cainc-
rou, and a majority of tiie delegates from
tho Stato weru sincerely wedded to his in
terests. It is unnecessary to say that a very largo
proportion of the Opposition of the Stato
wcro persuaded that Gen. Cameron's
chances of a nomination were as good as
those of any other candidate except Sew
ard ; and that as Pennsylvania was a
doubtful State, tho necessity of satisfying
and conciliating her, would ba a powerful
argument in favor of the man she put for
ward. Arguing in this way, tho sincere
fiiends of Gen. Cameron regarded his
prospects as highly encouraging.
Hut with all tho arguments of position
and availability in favor of their candidate,
tho conduct of the Pennsylvania delegation
at Chicago was mo-t curious, and iucx-

Appearances indicate that the Pomi -

early capitulation was competed by tho
er,.n r.e ,n.,M,i,i, ,.:
not, it is certain that tho delegates from
this Stato displayed su-pieious alaciity in
' Imuling down their colors. They weto

Gen. Cameron has been deceived and

Log Floating A. Man Drownod. I
Wo aro again cnllcd upon to record
another painful accident, which occurred
about four miles from this plaeo, in tho
Loyalsock, on Friday of last week. Tho
heavy rains which fell during tho week,
swelled tho waters of tho o reck to a groat
extent, and on Friday a gang of hands
wcro sent to the stream for tho purposo of
plunging in and floating a largo quantity (
shore. Tho work was under the suporvis-
ion of Col. James Df.eha and Edward

were encountered by tho whole party. At
ono point, known as the "hay stacks,"
(where tho bed of tho stream is full of pro-
jeeting rocks,) a "jam" occurred, and a

tempting to pry them oft", tho whole mass
started, and ono man, Mahtin MokiumJV

he could roach the shore. Ho clung -to a

at the time ho started, which undoubtedly
saved his life. It was indeed a miracle
that ho gained the shore alive.
About an hour after this occurrence

had got ten feet from tho thoro, the boat

Popl'lah sovkiickixtt. This cxpres
sion is very common among politicians ju-t
now, but we doubt if its origin and its
meaning are well understood, It is ued
in reft rence to slavery iu tho Territories
of tho United States, about the govern
incut of which there is so much diversity
of opinion. The Republicans as-ert the
doctrine that Congress has entire power
over the subject, and may legislate slavery
into or out of any Territory. The Soinh
cm men and some Xoithern Democrats as
sert tliat Congress has no such power, that
a Teriilorial Legislature, established by
Congress, cannot havo any higher power
than Congress, and that consequently thci o
is no power to affect shuery within a Ter
litory until a Statu Government is being
formed. Senator Douglas and his friends
agree with neither of those notions. Thoy
say that Congress has no such power, but
that a Territorial Legislature has the pow
er and right to do so, and this they call
Popular Sovereignty, while by its oppo
nents it is nicknamed Squatter Sovereign
ty. In tho Dred Seott case, Chii f Justice
Taney, in delivering the opinion of tho
Court, did decide that slavery was in the
Tcnitories by virtue of tho Constitution,
that Congress had no right to legi-late
about it, and added: " and if Confess
cannot do this if it is heirud the poire s,
co'tl'rrrcd on the. Valerul Government U
will he admitted, we presume, that it could
not authorize a 'Ctrritnri'd Government
to excicUc them." The opponents of this
doctrine insist that, as that was not tho
point expressly decided, they aro not bound
by tho icws of the Court, and that a po
litical platform need not ho controlled In
judicial decisions. This is tho brief, yet
full statement of tho question of Popular
