Wa need money badly, and It will be a very great rc
lief tout If our friends arid patrons will furnish us with
a little of tho "needful" without delay. If they cannot
fay all, let tbem at least give us a part of that to which
ivs are justly entitled. In order to relieve us from our
embarrassments. We think we hare been very indul.
gent, and therefore hope to meet with a ready response
to what we conceive to be a reasonable request Wc shall
beprcparedtorecchoourfricnds at the office, and fur
nlilt them promptly with receipts forwhatcver amounts
they may desire, persons at a distance, and those re
siding out of the county, can remit by mall at our risk.
Come, friends, give us a lift without longer delay, as
we must have money to keep the old Columoia Democrat

Thb Chops. Our exchanges through
out tho Stato give tho most flattering ac
counts of tho crops. All through Perm
sylvania tho wheat crop is more than an
average ono, and has been harvested in
good condition. The hay, although not
heavy, is of an unusually good quality.
The corn and potatoes arc somewhat back
ward, but they look well, and tho recent
general showers will issuo a good product.
With the exception of fruits, thcro will be
in Pennsylvania more than an average
crop this year.
Oration by Hon. M. E. Jackson
The citizens of Berwick and vicinity
held a "Union Celebration" on the Fourth
of July, in the Grove, near Evansvillo.
Wo learn by tho ''Berwick Gazttte," that
it was a magnificent Celebration, and that
all things were transacted in decency and
good order, and to general satisfaction.
Hon. M. E. Jackson, was tho principal
Orator of the Bay, and those who had the
plasuro of hearing his Address, inform
us that it was a well-adjusted, tastefully
arranged and thoughtfully worded histor
ical and national production delivered in
plain diction and comprehensive language
and merited as it received tho universal
approbation of his intelligent audience.
Wo observe that our friend Col. Tato of
the Columbia Democrat, is a candidate for
the Legislature. Wo h avo a warm feeling
for tho Col. and under ordinary circum
stances would rejoice in his success. We
also have a high opinion of, and an earn
est desire for the honor of tho profession
and would regret to sec him defeated by
an "outsider" not in the profession editor
ial. To avoid this contingency j wo have
determined to run against tho Col. oursclf,
- so that, in the success of either, the honor
and the dignity of tho press, will bo main
tained. We intend to run, ''on our own
hook." Our platform is the "Union, tho
Constitution and tho enforcement of tho
laws," To this wo add, "no compromiso
with traitors" And that tho nublio mav

Tho following principles, laid down by
Mr. Jefferson in his Inaugural Address,
now moro than sixty years ago, havo al
ways been, and aro still, tho doctrines hold
by the Democratic parly. We don't know
whether wc shall bo charged with treason
aud threatened with "halter" and "gibbet"
for publishing the creed, but shall run the
risk of that anyhow. So hero goes at a
Equal and exact justice to all men,
of whatever stato or persuasion, religious
or political ;
Tho support of tho Stato governments
in all their rights as tho surest bulwarks
against an ti-republican tendencies;
A mild and safe corrective of abuses
which are lopped by tho sword of revolu
tion, whero peaceful, remedies aro unprovi
ded ;
A generous spirit of concession aud com
promiso, tho vital principlo of Republics,
without which there must bo an appeal to

Tho supremaoy of tho civil over tho

Economy in tho publio expense, that la
bor may bo lightly burdened j
Freedom of religion, freedom of speech,
freedom of press, and froodom of tho per

If any havo wandered from theso princi

them hasten whilst tho-forms of our beloved
Republic yet remain, to rctraco their steps
and to regain the road which alono leads1
to Peace, Liberty and Safety.
The President's Messaob. The
messago of Abraham Lincoln, wherein he
declares that it yet remains for the people
"to demonstrate to tho world that those
who can fairly carry an election can also
suppress a rebellion," is a deliberate, stud-
ied insult to tho Democracy of tho entire
North. Mr. Lincoln ought to know that
the men who carried the election last fall,
aud thereby inaugurated civil war, are not
uow in tho ranks of tho army which has
been called out to support tho Government.
He ought to know that a very large pro-
portion of that army aro men who voted
against him who detest his,and
who regard them asdaugcrous to the pcaco
of tho country, and inimical to American
freedom. They are thcro not to support a
Black Republican Administration, but to
maintain and uphold tho Government un
der which they livo.
Col .James Cameron. Tho reported
death of Col. Cameron, who gallantly fell
at tho head of his regiment on Sunday last,

Who are Secessionists ?
The Now York Tribune is tho organ of

u is uy no means iiic spr.cihc duty nor
thesptaat xntccsts of Republicans to
maintain the Union."
And tho reason given for this frightful
specimen of indifferono in regard to the
integrity of tho nation by a journal that is
uany Dranuin? somebody or oilier as a
"traitor" who is more patriotic than it is
itself, is thus expressed :
" With the slave States in the Union,
the Democrats tcill probably rule three
terms out of lour; lot secession become a
fixcdfact, and therr chances of ascendancy
will be materially lessened l"
Wo do not accept tho doctrino of the
Tribune for those of the entire Republican
party,- but wo really believe that the ultra
and zealous wing of it, which is by far
the largest, accept such heresy, What a
shockingly selfish and narrow conception
of honest patriotism tho individual must
entertain whoso affection for his party sur
passes his love for his country 1
Libel Suit. Wo on Friday gave a
portion of tho testimony elicited in the case
of Henry Black against tho Doylestown
(Pa.) Intelligencer, tho charge being that
of libel against the editors, who had de
nounced the plaintiff as a secessionist, trai
tor, &c. Tho Jury, sitting in Philadel
phia, on Thursday last, brought in a ver
dict of guilty. A motion for a new trial
was made. .Taking this case a3 a prece
dent, thcro is a chance for any number of
libel suits on tho part of tho faithful and
good citizens who, becauso they could not
go in blindfold, without rcmonstrancc.into
ferocious war against their lato brethren,
under the name of "enforcing tho laws,"
havo been denounced by tho public press
as secessionists, traitors, &e. Now, as
treason is a capital crime, it stands to rea
son that to charge a man with it who i) not
guilty of it, merely from political animosi'
ty, or to damage him of his busiues by
creating a violent prejudice against him
throughout tho community, is a highly ao
tionablo offence, and if tho perpetrators aro
not taught this experience, it will be be
causo they aro treated much more forboar
ingly than they treat others.
JV. V. Journal ff commerce,
Ordep. in Town. Owing to the strin
gent regulations made by Col, Rickctts, of
tho 6th Regiment, guards aro placed in
town. No soldier is permitted to come
into the Borough without a written pass
from tho commanding officer. Any soldier
found intoxicated is forthwith scut to Camp,
accompanied by tho guard. It seems hard,
but such regulations aro necessary, to make
recruits acquainted with the restraint of
military life. It is all the better, too, for
tho men, who aro thus kept from indulging
too freely in alcoholic drink, at the several
places of "liquor refreshment" in this town.

A Great Fight at Manassas!
Washington, Jul 22. After tho latest
information was recoived from CentrcviUe,
at half past seven o'clock last night, a soriss
of ovents took ploco in an intense degrco
Many confused statements are provalent,
but enough is known to warrant tho state
ment that we have suffered in a degrco
which has cast a gloom over the remnant
of tho army, and excited tho deepest melan
choly throughout Washington. Tho car
nage has been tremendously heavy on both
We wero advancing and taking tho mask
ed batteries gradually but surely, and dri
ving the enemy towards Manassas Junction,
when tho enemy scemod to bo reinforced by
Gen Johnston, nnd immediately commenced
driving us back, when n panio among our
troops suddenly occurred, and a regular
stampede took place.
It is thocght that Gen. McDowell under
took to make n stand at or about Centreville,
but tho panic was so fearful that tho whole
army became demoralized, and it was im
possible to check them cither at Ccntrevillo
6r Fairfax Court Hiusc.
Geu. McDowell iotendod to retreat beyond
Fairfax Court House. Tho retreat was kept
up until tho men reached their regular on
canipmcnts, a portion of whom returned to
them, but a still larger portion coming in
sido the entrenchments.
A largo numbor of tho troops in their ro
treat fell on tho waysido from exhaustion,
and scattered along tho entire route, all tho
way from Fairfax Court Houso.
"iho road from Bull's Run to Centreville
was strewod with knapsacks, arms, etc.
Somo of tho troops deliberately threw
away their guns and nppurtcnanccs, tho
better to facilitate their travel.
Gen. McDowell was in the rear at the re
treat, oxorting himself to rally his tnoi,but
with only partial effect. Tho latter part of
tho army, it Is said, mado their retreat in
good order. Ho was completely exhausted,
having slept but little for throo nights. His
ordors on .the field did not at all times roach
those for whom they wero intended.
It is supposoi that tho forca sent ngainst
our troops consisted, according to a prison
er's statement, of about 00,000 men, inclu
ding a largo number of cavalry. He fur
ther says, that owing to tho reinforcemonts
from Richmond, Strawsburg', nnd other
points, tho cnomy's effective forco was 90,000
According to tho statement of tho Eiro
Zouaves they havo only about 200 men loft
from tho slaughter. Tho Sixty-ninth New
York, nnd other regiments, havo suffered
frightfully in killed and wounded.
Such of tho wohndol as wero brought to
tho Ccntrevillo Hospital woro left;thcro af
ter having their wouuds properly dressed.
Tho Surgeon in attendance thcro was
Frank II. Hamilton.
Tho panlo was so great that tho attempt
to rally thorn to a stand at Centrovillo was
entirely in vain.
If a firm stand had been mado there our
troops could havo been made reinforced and
much disaster prevented.
General McDowell was thus foiled in his
well arranged plans.
It is supposed that all the provision trains
belonging to the U. S. govcrnmeut wero
Some regiment wagons wcro overturned
by accident, or the wheels came off, and
therefore had to be abandoned.
Largo droves of cattlo wero saved by bo
ing driven in the advance of tho retreat.
Washington, July 22, It is estimated
that only 20.000 of our troops in all wero
engaged, nnd not moro than 15,000 at any
ono time.
All communication with Alexandria
has been stopped, to prevent tho soldiors
from crossing tiio Potomac.
Tho returned soldiers aro completely worn
nut. They complain of wout of food, hav
ing had nothing to cat after breakfast yos
terday, nnd that thoy woro kept in tho fight
during tho cntiro engagement, while tho
rebel strength was constantly supplied with
fresh troops.
Tho whole battle on tho centre column
was within n radius of a mile.
Itisbeleived that tho rebels abandaned
some of their battories for tho purposo of do
cnying the attacking forco to advanco to a
position whero a double firo could bo direct
ed at them aud sweep thoir lines. ,
Tho following particulars havo been re
ceived fiom a gentleman who accompanied
tho Eighth New York rcgimont : Tho men
reached tho field after a fatigueing march of
nino hours, and immediately attacked the
enemy. The rebel batteries were concealed
as well as their infantry, while our men
movod steadily forward without being ablo
to direct their tire with as telling a result as
if thoy had been ii tho open field. None of
tho field or staff officers of the Eighth regi
ment wero injured.
Lieutenant M. II, Wall, of company B,
roocivod a slight wound from an oxplodod
shell. Captain Griffin of company E, is sup
posed to be a prisoner. Surgeon Simpty,
Assistant Surgeon G.Winslow and Assistant
Surgeon O. S. Degrnus, of tho 8th N. York
nobly surrendered themsofvos soonor than
leave thoir woundod comrades.
In tho grand retreat many of tho Gair
baldiaHS acted liko savages firing in every
direction. On their run to Fairfax country
houses wcro invaded, and innocent persons
maltreated. They seem to havo been com
pletely crazed in their rage over the repulse.
Sherman's battery, or the groator part of
it, has returned to the city. Tha reason
why tho other batteries wore taken was be
cause the horses attached, as well as tho
reserve horses, wors shot down rendering
their removal impossible.
Varison's batteiy will be mustered out of
service at New York.where it will arrive to.
taorrow afternoon. The battery will bo re
ceived In Now York by tho homo Guard un-
