Another Democratic Victory.
Col. Charhs J. Diddle, Democrat, was,
on Tuesday, elected to Congress in the
Second (Phila'd) District. Charles O'Ncrll,
Esq., Bcpublican, was his competitor and
was defeated by 218 votes. This is one of
the strongest Bcpublican Districts in the
State, and hence, Col. Biddlo'a election is
a most triumphant Democratic victory.
The Twelfth and Second Districts have

Not a bit of it, neighbor Friok. It is
the fellow who meanly slandered Mr. Bu

We disdain his feigned sympathy for us;

Vandalism. Wo frequently 6eo our
editorial articles appropriated by our rural
neighbors, and do not think of complain
ing of tho impropriety when Ihcy pass
them off upon their readers as original ;
but tho Columbia Democrat appears not
to be satisfied with such a uso of our lucu
brations, for in a recent issuo of that pa
per, wo have seen a nart of tho mangled
remains of one of them, so shockingly dis-
ugurcu as 10 maKC it uimcult to rccognizo
it. mo robbery we could bear with pa

ingly mutilated, is, to say tho least of it,
outrageous. Daily 'Vlu'ad'u) Ncu-s.
Neighbor Flanicje.v, of tho Metes, must
be laboring under ono grand mistake in
his premises. Wo have no knowlcdgo of
any of his "lucubrations,''wise or otherwise,
for years, haviug appeared in the columns
of the Columbia Democrat, and wo may
truthfully add, for tho good reason, that
wo seldom if ever Cud any articlo in tho
A'acs, worthy of extraction. Henoo, we
wash our hands of tho chargo of "Van

JOT Tho Tribune believes slavery to be
the unpardonable sin, and its abolition tho
highest act of piety that man can porform.
In tho enforcoment of this doctrine, it and
its co-abolitionists, havo dono qui to as
much as tho secessionists of South Carolina
to bring about tho present war. Now that
it has come, they aro not disposed to lot it
end until it has achiovcd their darling
scheme tho extermination of slavery. If
tho rebels wcro to offer to lay down their
arms to-morrow, unconditionally, tho Tri
bune's voico would bo still for war. Lest
somo Bhould think wc arc putting tho caeo
too strongly, wo will call attention, for a
moment, to a choico extract from tho let
tcrofono of its special correspondents,
giving an account of tho passage of the
Potomac by Gen. Patterson's forces :

Col. Foster, lato editor of tho Norfolk

Convention, and an ardent supporter of
Mr. Breckenridge, has announced himself
as an unconditional Union candidate for
Congress in tho First District of North
Carolina. He is an oloqucnt spcakor and
of unquestioned courage and energy. Ho
has made a number of appointments for
tho canvass and declares that tho prcsnnce
of tho United States troops is all that is
necessary to ensuro a reaction in favor of
Col. William HoriciNs. This vete
ran Dcmoorat, and truly honest man, has
been nominated for the Stato Legislature
by tho Democrats of Washington county.
He was Speaker of tho Houso of Repre

War,and distinguished himself by prompt
ness, ability and inflexible integrity. He
has since filled a number of important pub

Man Shot. A correspondent informs
us, that on Friday evening tho 21st, a man
was shot, on tho old Turnpike, about ono
mile east of tho Black Moshannon crock,
under tho following circumstances, Dan
iel Swab and his son John, had gone out
for tho purposo of watching a deer lick,
and a "crossing" 011 tho turnpike. Mr.
S. went to tho lick, whilst tho son remain
ed along side of tho piko, to watch deer as
thoy crossed. About 0 o'clock in the eve
ning, a man came walking along tho road,
and young Swab mistaking him for a deer
fired, with fatal effect, tho ball striking
him on tho neck, severing an artery, and
lodging in tho opposite shoulder. The
man ran in tho direction of young Swab
about 50 yards, fell 011 his back, aud ex
pired immediately. Tho deceased was a
stranger over six feet high, heavy shouU
dered, black hair, beard close shaved, and
dark complexion j had a sear on tho left

chin. Young Swab was sent to Bellefonto

The Doctor says, "Let there bo no com
promise, tho laborer who ii now stinted
for want of employment will not submit to
any alleviation of our present difficulties."
I have no idea how my views will bo re
ceived, but I sincerely believo that a con
stitutional compromise is just tho thing our
laboring men want, and 1 mo6t heartily
concur in the movement now going on by
the peoplo of Now York and other places,
to get up memorials to bo submitted to the
present oxtra session of Congress in favor
of an adjustment. I believo that tho times
rcquiro that tho publio men, the selected
men of the nation, should take a firm hold
of this great question. Congress must ne
cessarily bo connected with it ; any ad
justment that may bo made ou this subject
must, to some extent, be connected with
Congress. If it bo possible to agree upon
an adjustment in the shape of law, Con
gress and the Executivo can perform tho
whole wcrk. Up to the present hour no
great effort has been made to settle tho dif
ference. Politicians and demagogues in
both sections havo mado inflammatory ap
peals to tha passion of tho peoplo and in
stead of quelling the excitement have stired
it up instead of crushing mutual hatred
and distrust, havo promoted it instead of
removing causes of dispute, havo created
them for the sako of power and offieo, they
keep each section in ignorance of tho pa
triotic and conservative feeling of tho
other. There aie too many men on both
sections busy in hastening on the war iu
order to double tho number of officers and
incrcaso their share of the spoils. Tha
olhee-scekiii'' crowd would not settlo our
diflicultios if they could ; alrendy thous
amis and tens of thousands of offices have
been created and filled by as many fawn-

In tl.n n.inltn imrM rpfinnpfinrr the
II. B. Wright, arising I presumo from
the fact that he received and accepted tho
nominations of both tho Democratic and
Republican parties in this District.
Will you permit mo as one of tho sup
porters of Col. Wright at tho recent elec
tion to say a word or two on this subject.
Col. Wright somo fifteen years ago was
elected as the Democratic Candidate to the
Legislature of this State, aud while in that
body, uniformly sustained tho principles
of tho party, by which ho was elected.
Ho was subsequently, several times, pro
sentcd by the Democracy of his own coun
ty, as their choico of Representative in
Congress, and two or three times received
the nomination in the District as the Dem
ocratic Candidate. In 18o2 ho was elected
to Congress and served in that body during
tho moinorablo s.rugglo, in 1801, for tho
passage of that much abused measuro tho
Kansas and Nebraska act and tho Repeal
of the Missouri Compromize which mcas
urcs.ho ably advocated both in and out of
that body. Ho was President of tha
Democratic National Convention that uom-
inated James K. Polk, for tho Presidency
in 1844. In 1850 he was a member of
tl,n NTntinnnl fWnntlnn nmninated James

I havo thus given a brief synopsis of
tno "Kccord" of Col. Wright, and with
such a record bcforo him, what Democrat
need doubt as to his futuro action. Tho
Republican wire-pullers may alledgo that

nomination. ht un lnn ....- i-
produce thoso pledges, and tho fact is nn.
parent that Wright did accept the Demo-
eratio nomination, as is shown byhis letter
of aeeaptaneo, 'tis folly for these
talk, The real truth of tho matter is tho
appointments made by the National Ad-
ministration for this district had soured
and disappointed soma of tho Repubh u

furious factions that it was Vund mp0 i-

down conoorn to fall back on Wright, to
save themselves from tho exposure of an
utter and o'crwhclming dofeal. To me an
old supporter of Col, Wright, it was par.
ticularly pleasing to see Republicans obli
ged to oome up and endorse tho man they
have timo and again so basely slandered,
Again and again have they donounccd Col.
Wright, as a "dough face," for voting f0r
what they characterized at the timo aa
"the sum of all villainies," the Kansas and
Nebraska act, and tho repeal of the Misj.
ouria Compromise. Timo must havo cort
rcctcd their judgment, as they seemed
anxious to set tho stsl of condemnation on
their past denunciations of this mau Wright
when thoy voted for him on Saturday lad.
Wo always believed that the Republican's
nbueo of Wright was caused moro throu-b
fear of his talents and influence, than from
any belief thoy held that bo had commit,
ted an unpatriotic act in voting for tho
Kansas bill. His re-election to Congress
partly through their support, proves it.
Col. Wright will support tho Adminis
tration in every effectual measure to crush
out the present wicked rebellion against tho
Constitution, aud the laws, but if tha Rj.
publicami expect him to bo instrumental ia
carrying out any of their absurd Chicago
platform dogmas, we judgo they will fit,J
befora tho next session of Congress is over,
that they havo reckoned this timo without
Old Line Democrat.
