RESOLUTION OF THE DEMOCRATIC STATE EXE

critic State Committee, in order to avirt, IT possible, the
consequences uhich must inei itably result from the un.
happy division now existing In the ranks of the Demoe
racy in our State and nation, wc cordiully and honestly
recommend to the Democracy of the State that they unit
with heart and voice in the support of our excellent and
competent nominee for Governor, Henry D. Foster, and
that in all tlu local elections they act as one party, for
giving and forgetting any differences that they may havo
entertained fcr tho Presidency; but with a view to a per
feet unity against the common I'lumy, wo recommend to
me ueumcracy ni rennsyivania 10 uniiu inur voies lor

President and Mco President over Messrs. Lincoln and
Hamlin, thau said electors shall be under obligation so
to cast said vota; ifnn the oth-r hand it should appear
that eaid voto would not elect Mcsrr. Douglas and John
son. but would elut John C. Crechinrirtgo and Joseph
Lana President a id VlcePrendent over Meisrs. Lincoln
and Hamlin, then slid vote shall be caht lVr them: and
in case the united votu of Pennsylvania would not elect
either of these ticket, then the electors may dltfdeit
between them according to their own judgment of what
would bs the best fcr the country and .the Democratic
party-tiio basis of this united action being that it lathe
first and highest duty of all Democrats, however they
may diff.'r about men and minor points of principle or
policy, to uniu against a common enemy, and to avert,
if possible, tha greatest calamity that could befall tho
country, tho election of a Clack Republican President;
and further, tha Chairman cf this Committee is hereby
Authorized to correspond w ith the several electors in tho
State, and rbtain from each of said electors his written
pledge, within thirty days from this date, that hs will
faithfully carry out the object of this resolution.

Candidate for Senator.
Morrison E. Jackson, E-q., of tho
Borough of Berwick, has been named in
political circles, as the Democratio Candi
dato of Columbia county, for tho position
of State Senator. Wo most heartily con
cur with tho Democracy of Columbia in
this recommendation, knowing Mr. Jack
son to Jbe eminently qualified for that high
station visgally, morally and politically
and should rejojeu to see mm nominated,
which woujd do equivalent to his election.
Mr. J. is a gentleman of largo Legislative
experience, Etanding high in the communi
ties at homo and abroad' where bo is
known,, and wo bavo no doubt his merits
will be duly appreciated by the sterling-
democracy of old Columbio.
Our Agricultuial Products-
The present year promises t bo ono of;
tbo most plenteous harvest. The crops
have escaped: even tho usual drouths, and
there is a prwpect of great prosperity.

England,acoording to tho New York A'tus

tho prevalence of cold rains in tho com

This fctato of things will enablo tho

wealth, reacts upon erery department of

havo been highly favored, and they will'
havo no reason to complain if tho antici
pations of iho present be fulfilled in theft-tare.
Tho cclipsu of tho 6uu on tho letli inst..
was, no-doubt, witnessed by thousands
and, tho spectacle Jvhlcli once, by tho
superstitious, was regarded as a token of , by it Gen. Jackson was nominated for
soma great ovent or calamity, is now ga- j President, and Martin Van BurtEN for
zed upon" in admiration of the truth ofjVico President. It was established for
science, which has demonstrated that tho
whole solar system is governed by laws so
exact and so regular, tiiat man can point
out tho position of tho heavenly bodies, '
1 ..l . . .1 ' . .1. .'
calculate their revolution, measuro their
distances, and survey tho paths in which
they run. How much moro satisfactory,
to tho mind of tho student, is tho knowl
edge of tho fact that tho laws of tho uni
verse aro governed and controlled by a
Great creative mind, who has been to
precise in His purposes, that the wbolo
solar system moves with a regularity true
as God Limself. No event transpires a
uiong tho heavenly bodies but is in strict
accordance with tho iinnratablo laws of
tho Divino mind.
Sco how tho astronomer has mado all
theso things plain ; take, for an example,

Tho Two-Thirds Rule.
Tho two thirds rule was adopted by tho
first Democratic National Convention, in
1832, says tho Lancustcr Intelligencer and
tho purposo of protecting tho certain Dem -
ocratio States from having obnoxious can-
didatcs forced upon them by tho delegates
from Oppositions States who might nossi-

every instanco ninco then, until thoprcseut.tce, and says thoy havo ".usumcd to de
tune. In 1841,3Ir. Vanduuen had a do-

two thirds, ho was defeated ,and Mr. Folk

eotiscquontly no candidate not receiving
that number of votes can be said to havo

of tho Convention which remained in ses

there appear to have been only 104$ votes
all told, including some twenty or more,
piincipally from Southern States, who were
admitted to scats to the exclusion of tho
regularly elected delegates from those

which Mr. Douglas appears to havo ob
tained at any timo, was 181 J being 20J
less thaj tho required number under the
two thirds rule, oven admitting tho legiti

Letter of Ex-President Vltttt,
HiLLsnoito' , N. n., June 89, isoo,
My Dear Sir s Your letter fro-n BaJ. "
timoro directed to me at Now Vork and for -warded
thence to Concord, has at last
reached mo hero and I will not lay it asij9 '
without saying a word in reply. Your re.
joction as a dclegato was, in my judgment
u clear violation of right,hx. it must liatj
gratified your friends on tho spot, as it has
me sinco, to observe that tho wrong cer. I
petrated in your exclusion was not more j
palpable than your vindication of sound
priuciples and of your claims ts a seat was
conclusive and triumphant.
It was vain to hope ior harmony after fi
tho action of the maiorltyupon tho renort
of tho committee ou credentials. It could
hardly have failed fo be understood getJ.
orally, that such action must teiminato tho
existence of the Convention as a body rep. T
resenting tbo Democracy of tho Union, anj
eventuato in the present condition of tho c
powerful and patriotic organization, whiah
has so long upheld tho equal right, and 1
vindicated in peace aud war tha common
honor of these confederated States. Thsro b
has been, iu fact, ?io nominalhn marie m j,
cnhformilij with the tslobliihed and rec
ognized itsnjits of that organization, and '
hcuco sound and faithful men will find
nothing in tho proceedings, sd far as tk. t
nominees are concerned, to bind their par. "
ty fealty. Under these circumstances, it 1
would gratify me exceedingly if our friends I
in all sections of the land could unite earn
estly and cordially iu tho support of Mr
lirecKinriugo auu ucn. ianc, anu time
ensure for our cause signal victory j but
thii cannot even bu hoped for. What then
is to bo dono with a result so repugnant
to our wishes ? It is of los.s consequcucH
t'j discuss who were right and who wrong
upon the question of membership iu th;
Convention, than it is to determine haw
tho Democratic party, which united is iu.
wnciblc, can avert the calamity of an ir
reconcilable breach. Ifdivision is at pres
ent ineitable, it may bu well to inquim
whether it be permanent. Is devotion to
principle, to tho tqual rights of thu States
aud to the integrity of the Union, to bo
'aciiticud to any object of personal ainbi
tion, or, whit is worse, if posriblo, to tin
blind control of p.isvion, of which we haw
already too much ? Have tha doctrinei
and sentiments of actional fanaticism which
culminated last year in the armed invasion
of a .i-tcr Statu with tho avowed put pen
of exciting insurrection ,ccaied to be dan
gerous? Where is the evidence of eliaiijj.i
in thu direction of sounder and more con
wrvative opinion T I do not poiceive it.

iss Dohetha L. Dix. The rievr
ghton Times thus describes this emi
nent lady, of whom we have elsewhere no
ticed as having visited our borough, last
In person, Miss Dix is rather above the
medium t-izo has a deep blue eye, dark
hair, and a countenance expressive not on
ly of bouiguity, goodness aud gcntlenesJ,
but of unfaltering firmness and perscver
encc. Her manners aro bland and win
ning, and her conversation easy aud unos
tentatious. Like Him, whoso life she aims to imitate
this noble woman "goes jboxit doing gou.l."
In a wilderness of thorns she has planted
tho rotes of hope ; and to many a sorrow
ing soul sho has brought tho balm of con
solation and "tho oil of joy.'' While tlu
memory of tho Wall street money-monger,
aud tho selfish worldling shall be forgotten
or remembered only with sorrow, tbo
"righteous," and thoso who live to bless
their fellow man, "shall bo held iu ever

And thus in "the' holly war" of truth
and righteousness in tho strife for all
that is noble and just and magnanimous
do such souls as a howard, a Hopper, a
Fry, n Dix, engage leaving in their walso
not tho smoke of carnaco or tho waitings
I of anguish, as in the case of tho Bangui ov
ry warrior, but peace, lovo and joy.
