By reforenco to tho report of proceed

the manner of making up tho electoral
ticket,, to bo voted for President, has been
somewhat changed. It is substantially
the same thing, but it seems to bo satis

adopt the previous action.
Fornoy of course opposes it. What
tho leading spirits of his late disorganising
movement may do we are not yet advised,
Wo hope howover they will now drop the
mask, and take sides. Ho who is not for
us is against us, and ho who docs not as

Tho Delegate Elections.
Wo have only room to remind our demo
cratic friends that tho Delegate Election
comas off next Saturday, and request that
they attend and discharge thoir duty.
IST The Democratic State Convention
of Vermont, held on Thursday last, was
unanimous for Douglas and Johnson.
John Q. Saxe the poet and author, was
nominated for Governor.
JS" Eell and Everett meetings will be
held in Bloomsburg, on Wednesday tho
S9th inst., and at Cattawusa on tho 30th.
David Paul Brown, Henry M. Fuller and
others arc to address the meetings.
A Challenge ! The Republican pre33
charge Messrs Breckinridge and Lane with
being DisunionUts. Tha frinds of thoso
distin juished statesmen and soldiers chal
lenge their enemies to point out a single
disunion sentiment ever uttered by cither
of them. In poaco and in war thoy have
always, and at all times, been found on tin
sido of thsir whole country north an 1
south, east and west and novarhavo they
harbored a thought or entortained a sen
timent against tu? integrity and perpetuity
of the Union.
The Pennsylianan is now among tho
mo it active and ablo papers in tho Stato,
and doing good service in the ranks of tho
regular tiekct, Breckinridge, Lane, and
Tho narrisburg Patriot ej- Union, raises
tho nam:s of Breckinridge and Lino, and
in an able editorial gives tho reasons for
its preference. If nny body wants a first
rate paper from the Capital of tho State,
we reccommond the Patriot Union. It
is ablo, active and fearless.
State Finances. Tbo semi-annual
interest on the funded debt of Pennsyl
vania, was promptly paid on Wednesday,
tho 1st int., by the Stato Treasurer, who
visited Philadelphia for that purpose.
Tho total funded debt on the 1st day of
December. 1850, was 838,039,001,07, tho
half yearly interest upon which is 8703,
739, 02. The balance in tho Treasury,
on the 1st of July, after providing for the
interest, amounted to 8305,402,27, so that
the balance left in hand, upon a moderato
calculation of tho incoming receipts, will
amount to about 81,000,000 I This is a
very handsome exhibit of tho financial
affairs of the State, and certainly the
rooit flattering one since she disposed of
her publio works,
Strange, if not Funny.
The last number of the Fulton Demo
crit comes to us with the flag of Breck-
inridql and Lane at its mast head. This
is a change from Douolas and Johnson,
who have heretofore found a champion in
tho Fulton Ilemocmt. We copy tho
following from tho leader on the subject:
We, the Junior, Editor of this paper,
being strongly in f nvor of BRECKIN
RIDGE and LANE, believing them to
be the truo representatives of Democratic
principles, and tho regular nominated
candidates of tho party, take this oppor
tunity, while tho Senior Editor is absent
atCresson, attending tho meeting of tho
Stato Central Committee, on our own
espons'biliri, to hoist tho names of our
favorite candidates, to express our individ
ual opinion, and what we know to be tho
almost unanimous lceling of tho voters of
And then after pitching generously And
fearlessly into the Douglas squatter doe
trine, and tho force with which his friends
accomp'ished his nomination at Baltimore
against tho wishes of the South, and in
defiaDCo of the two-third rule, ho adds
the following :
For these reasons wo, for this weak the
acting editor of this paper, take down tho
names of Stephen A. Douglas nnd Her
sehel X. Johnson from the head of our
columns, and hoiit in their stead John 0.
Breckinridge, of Kentucky, and Joseph
Lane, of Oregon.
This is plueky, and wo admire it as
well as tho well-timed absence of the senior
Editor, who doubtlos felt the force of this
fact, which we find announced iu another
column of tho same paper.
The Strength or Breckinridge in
this County. At the County Convcn
tion held on Saturday, there were only
two of tbo delegates in favor of Douglas,
and this is about tho relative strength of
their men in this county.
In view of this wo sincerely hope that
the Senior, when back, will resign himself
to the will of the people, and applaud the
patriotism ol his associate.
As a part of the history of this affair,
we here insert tho despatch sent hero and
everywhere, by the Douglasites, to break
tho fall of their nominees from tho flag,
staff of the Fulton Democrat.
Our readers will doubtless be convinced
of its truth, as they aro of many other
things published aud telegraphed for the
benefit of Douglas. Read tho despatch
as it appeared in the Saturday afternoon
McCon.nelsduro, Pa., Aug. 11. The
Democracy held a county meeting here
last night, ut which a regular skirmish was
indulged iu between tho Douglas and
Breckinridge parties. Much bitter feel
ing prevailed, and tho meeting broke up
in a row.
During tho absence of tho editor of the
Democui. Mr. Sansom, at Cresson. the
Breckiuridgi party entered tho offico of
tliat newspaper, mutilated the forms, run
up tho Breckinridgo flag, and issued an
edition of tho paper under that banner.
The affair has crea.cd considerable ex
citement. A personal rencontre also took place
last night, after tbo meeting, between Mr.
Sansom and G, A. Smith, a Breckinridge
attorney. Sansom gave Smith the lie,
when th latter collared him. The par
ties were then separated.
tST Wein Fornoy, cousin of John W.,
and a prqfrssed Democrat, turns up ns
editor of the Harrisburg Telegraph, a
rampant Republican sheet. To what base
In a recent speech mado by Judge
Douglas, at Concord, N. II., ho is repor
ted in tho papers as having uttered tho
following languago :
" Tho principle that he, (Douglas) stood
upon was the right of tho people to mako
their own laws, and to establish institu
tions to suit themselves. That was tho
principle of tho Revolutionary War Dem
ocrats ; but it is now said that Congress
can pass Federal laws, not local and do
mestic laws, for tho peoplo of a Territory
who have equal rights of self government,
and who went from tho old States where
thoy had these rights. Why should they
lose them in tho ferry boat crossing the
Now look at tho following principle
affirmed by tho U. S. Supremo Court in
tho Drcd Scott case, as set forth in How
ard's Roports, vol. 10, p. 305, and which
is the doctriuc advocated by Mr. Breckin
3d. " Every citizen lias a richl to take
ttith him tnlo the Teniioni any article of
properly ulireli the CantUttmoa of the
Uitttia States rtcng'itzcs w proierli.'

more authority over property of that de
scription than it may constitutionally ex
erciiO over property of any other kiud."
Cth. " Tho act ot Congress therefore
prohibiting a citizen of tho United States
taking with him his slaves when he re
moves to the Territory in question to re
side, is an ixirvisc of authou'.y over pri
v.Uepnp'rly which is notiomraMtd by
the Cons ilution, and tho removal of the
plaintiff by his owner to that Territory
gave him no title to freedom."
Cth " While it remains a Territory,
Congress may legislate over it within tho
scope of its constitutional powers in rla
tiou to citizens of the United States, and ,
may establish a Territorial Govcruun nt,
and the lorm of this local government mu-t
be regulated by the diseretiou of t ongrcs ;
but ui'h p-xcers nut exeerwng those which
Oiiigreis its' by the Constitution is au
thorized to ixcicise over citizens of the

And then consider, in connection with
the above, the two following planks of tho
Platform whereon Mr. Douglas is now
running for President :
Resolved. That the Democratic party

tu'io i of t,luvcri) within tlie 'leirit'irirs.
Resolved, That it is in accordance v-itu
the true interpretation of the Cincinnati
1 lattoriu that during tuo existence ot Xer-
ritorial Government, the measure of
restriction, whatever it may be, imposed
by the Federal Constitution on tho pow i
crs of the Territorial Legislature over tho
subject of domestic relations as the sumc
has bent or shad hertaftsr ve,JliiaUy c-
termtneil by the Supreme Court of the
Uateu Ht'ws. bliall bo respected by all
good citizens, and enforced with prompt-1
ness and fidelity by every branch ot the 1
Federal Government. j
From the above it u apparent that
cither Judge Douglas is right, and the
Supremo Court and Mr. Breckinridge i
aud the National Convention wrong, or '
viccveisa. They differ widely in their;
construction of the Constitutional rights
ol tho people of a Territory, and cannot
both be right and both wrong. Let the
peoplo Judge between them.
New Y'irk against Lincoln lit cannot
be Elected. It is now reduced almost to a
positive certainty that Lincoln will not
carry New York, and it follows, as a mat
ter of course, that ho cannot be elected
President of these United States.
In regard to the vote of New York, J.
W. Shceban, Esq., Editor of tha Chicago
Tinus, tho confidential friend of Judgo
Douglas, who speaks what he knows, says : '
" For tho satisfaction of our readers and
the publio gcnorally, wo can tay that to
make SMtrttme douUj sire, and to place
iho result beyond all contingency, there
have been aud are now arrangements ma
king which wi.l give tho vote of New York
against Mr. Lincoln. That result will be
accomplished beyond all quetion j tho
vote of the State will never bo cast for
Lincoln. New York will not only voto
against him, but wrl give a majority of
Uz'ij limits nt' iigamt htm. His election,
is, therefore, an ascertained inin'SubdUy.
The failure to receive tha thirty five votes
of that State, will exclude the possibility
of his election ; ho has no other Stato to
fall back upon to mako good tbo defie'ency.
When we say that the voto of New York
will not bo given to Lincoln, we do not
speak unadvisedly. Wo speak confidently,
upon full avurance, that what wo say has
been resolved upon firmly and immov
ably." Union and Harmony The Perks
county Democracy have s t a gjod es-atn.
pic. At their regular County MojI n, on
Tuesday last, the friends of Breckinridge
and Douglas acted together as a unit, and
(without saying aught respecting Presiden
tial candidates) unanimously passed reso
lutions endorsing tho nomination of Gen.
Henry P. Foster, and urging tho im
portance of union and harmony in tho
party, Tho meeting was addressed by
gentlemen from both wings of the party,
and the utmost good feeling prevailed.
This is as it should be, and if Democrats
everywhere will but follow tho example of
old Berks, wo shall have no trouble in
carrying tho State in October and Novem
ber. Vermont. In this Stato thcDiraocrats
aro running two electoral tickets - one for
Breckinridge and one for Douglas. The
Democrats in Vermont can afford to sp'it,
and run as many tickets as they please it
will all amount to the tamo thing in tho
end. They aro somewhat differently situ
ated however, in Pennsylvania, and can
not afford to be divided.

A'ew objection to Mr. Breckinridge.
Mr. Brcckimidgo is charged by the con
spirators with having opposed Mr. Cass's
election iu 1848. Tho charge is false ;
and has been refuted.
He is charged with having favored Know State Pluli'ic eoI''
Nothingism in 1S55. It is false. He de
nounced tho whole thing. '
Ho is charged with being a disunionist.
The charge is made by those who are plot
ting tho overthrow of the government. It
He is now charged with being a poor
man ! It is stated bo never owned a slave I
that ho is not a slaveholder ! that ho
is compelled to employ white servant
