Mr. Lincoln voted against these resolu
tions, as ho said in his speech in tho House
on tho 12th of January, l84S,from which
the following will explain his position.
Mr. Lincoln said :
" But in addition to this, one of his col
leagues (Mr. Jtichardsou) came into this
House with a resolution in terms expressly
endorsing tho justice of tho President's
conduct iu the beginning of the war. So
that he found himself here, if he was in
clined to give the President his supplies.

we trust, give themselves further trouble
in refereueo to tho ticket of Breckin
ridge and Buckaxew, which has floated,
for tho past twelve months, at tho head of
tho Columbia Democrat. Wo aro free to
say, that that identical ticket, would have
been the best and strongest nomination tho
National Convention could have made,both
for Pennsylvania and the Nation, and now
as it is, we shall only amend oar first
choice for Vice Presideut,by substituting the
name of General Lank, for that of Min
ister Buckalcw. And by tho way, we
would here enquire of ocr neighbor of tho
Wegraph, who appears to wcild an "op
tie keen," how it is that ho has never dis
covered or. at least, had the rnanliuossto
acknowledge-that we, a few weeks bince
pinned upon him a falsehood, by the rec

Fourth of July.
This memorable day, celcbrat cd in tho
history of our political and religions Free
dom tho Eighty Fifth Anniversary of
American Independence was observed in
a quiet and peaceful mannor by the citi
zens of Bloomsburg. Wo had no special
public demonstration. Tho advent was
ushered in by ringing of the Church Bells
and the Firing of Cannon, and tho Day
was filled out wilh tho shooting of crack
ers and discharging sky-rockets. "Young
America" paraded our street iu the after
noon, accompanied by tho FJe and Drum
keeping step to the "music of tho Union."
We learn that tho citizens of Espytown,
joined by many of tho peoplo of Blooms-
burg, had a largo nnd pleasaut Sabbath
School Cilebration, iu Mr. John Itobison's
position that he could not do so. He should
feel compelled to vote on this resolution in
Does not this show clearly, that Lincoln
not only opposed tho justice of the war,
but would even have voted agaiut 11 the
Presidents supplies," if that question had
couio up byit.elf? Itiehardson'.s rcsolu .
tious were for tho honorable prosecution of
the war, but Lincoln opposed them, and
thereby placed himself on the record in
favor of a dishonorable termination of the
same. Iu short, ho was in favor of with
drawing our troops, and telling Mexico
and the world that we had been engaged in
an unjust war of aggression.
When resolutions of thanks to Gen. Tay
lor wero introduced in tho House, January
3d, 16 19, Mr. Gcorgo Ashmun. the Preti-
dent of tho late Chicago Convention, moved j
to add as an amendment, the following :
"i a tear unnecessarily and unconstitu
tionaly begun by the President of the
United Slates." Lincoln voted for this
amendment. (See Con. Globe, 1848,).
05.) Hence it appears that Lincoln de
sired to thank Gen. Taylor for "obtaining
a victory over tho enemy (at Bucna Vista)
which, for its signal and brilliant charac
ter, is unsurpassed in the military annals
of the world," but "in a war unnecessarily
and unconstitutionally begun." That is
the kind of thanks that Lincoln desired to
give Gen. Taylor, "and tho oScers and
soldiers of the regular army, and of the
volunteers under his command." In a
nother place in Lincoln's peech on the war,
ho thus spoke of the President: "The
blood of this war, like tho blood of Abel,
was crying from the ground against him."
Thus it will be seemthat Lincoln regarded
the blood that our soldiers shod in Mexico,
as crying from tho ground against them,
like tho blood of tho murdered Abel.
Wcrq our officers and soldiers in Mexico
murderers ? Lincoln answers, in effect,
that they ucie! For this speech see Con.
gressional Globe, 1818, pago 155.
Bufthe most noted, as well as tho most
ridiculous act of Lincoln's Congressional
career, was the introduction into the House,
on the 22d of December, 1847, of his 'spot'
resolutions. This was after tho war had
been going on for about twenty months,
Wo hav o it from' good authority that
Mr. Dawson is displeased wilh the report
of his speech in the Convention after the
nomination of Mr. Douglas. 'Tho reporter

Hon. Benjamin Fitzpatrick, placed on
tho ticket with Mr. Douglas, for the Vice
Pieaident, refused to accept, and finco the
adjournment of tho convention, Hcrschal
V. Johiijon, of Georgia, was placed on the
ticket in his stead.
Hon. Kassel.w Brown, of Warren
county, has been appointed by Gov. Pack-
a of tlio Erie and

Galhraith, deceased. The appointment
is only for a short period, as an election to
fill the vacancy will take place in Octo

The proceedings of this body, of which
wo publif-h a report elsewhere, will, no
doubt, meet with the hearty approval of
all good Democrats. Tho resolutions adopt
ed aro conceived iu a patriotic spirit.
They commend conciliation and compro
mise as the only means to save t!n coun
try from the rulo of Black Ilcpublicaniin,
and with reference to the two Democratic
candidates for the Pro-idency, they are
characterized by fairne-- and justice.
Both wings of the jiaity are unjoinstl to
unite with heart aud voiee iu the support
of the Democratic nominee for Governor,
HeSrv D. FosTim, and to contiuuo to net
in all local elections as ono paity, forgiv
ing and forgetting tho difference existing
between them in other respect. In regard
to tho Presidency, it is proposed that if it
should appear, from tho result of the elec
tions in the other States of the Um'on,that
by casting the entire vote of Pennsylvania
whole jear aro directed This year it pro
miscs great result. The wheat fields al
ready begin to a'suuic tho yoldeii hue of
harvest time. We havo heard no cjiii
plaiuts of a failure of crops no anticipa
tions of a poor harvest. Farmers are not
generally tho mo-t sanguine of human be
ings, and upon tlio appearance of the fly
or the weevil, are very apt to predict a to
tal destruction of tho wheat ; but this year
the old wheat enemies seem to have rested
from their labors, nnd allowed tho grain
to dcvelope without molestation, for tho
prophets of a short harvest have, not been
guilty of the u'ual amount of croaking.
Tho wheat crop promises to bo unusually
full, and, if tho weather should prove fa
vorablo for gathering it, the country will
once more be blessed with abundance.-
The comparative exemption that the wheat
has experienced from itrf usual enemies, is
probably duo, in a great measure, to the
cold aud wet weather this spring, which
caused every person to grumble at tho ap
parent perversity of tho season.
Accounts from all portions of the count
ry indicate au abundant harvest. The
aggregate productions of tho country will
unquestionably exceed those of auy former
year. Tho current crop will do much to
wards relieving tho country from tho stag
nation consequent upon tho cxplosiou of
1857. It will put nionoy in the pockets ol
tlio farmers all o-ver tho land, aud thu
strengthen tho substratum of business and
society. It will givo increased employ
ment and profit to the railroad and trans
portation intercut in all its ramifications,
and iu influenco aud benefits will speedily
be felt iu every departmentof industry and
trade. The addition of so many, million.
to the wealth of tho country iu a sin.'le
year will soon produce visible aigm o!
vigorous life and energy in the various
phases of human ovcuputiou. There seems
no good reason to distrust the future.
Ml the indications are that the nu.t ten
years will prove a peiiod of proipirity and
of rapid and subftantial advauctiuuiit in
bujiucrs and wealth. Let us hope that the
leo-on-i of the past few years will not be
speedily -forgotten, and that returning
bus'imss activity may bo tempered and rc-j
strained within a safe rate of lU'Oi'ross, by I

Arrival or the Great Eastekv.
This steamship, about which so much has
been said and written, arrived at Now
York on the 26th, with twenty-eight pas
scngcrs. Tho voyago was full of interest,
and demonstrated her superiority as a
sea going vessel, and the reliance and ex
cellence of her machinery. The highost
speed attained was fourteen and a half
knots. Tho ship's bottom is very foul,
and an allowanco of at least two knots
should bo mado on this account. The dis
tance usually steamed from Southampton
to Sandy Hook is 3100 miles, but the
went further south than the usual route to
avoid any danger from encountering ice.
