SATOBDAY MORNING, OCTOBER S, 19(11.
We supposed wo had said enough on
this subject in tho card which wo submit'
ted to tho pcoplo of Columbia County,
previously to tho nomination. Wo havo
nothing to add to that; but wo aro in
formed that the republicans aro making
use of tho fact that wo livo in Bloomsburg,
as tho foundation of anjnsinuation that wo
jnight'favor tho project. Our position, wo
now repeat, is unchanged ; but as a com
pleto answer to whatever tbcro might bo
in such a'n insinuation wc beg leave to say
that Emanuel Lazarus is supported for
tho Legislature by tho very men who havo
always favoured, and arc now favoring tho
widening of Market Street at tho expense
of tho County by Deacon Waller, by
John K. Grotz, by Mclvclvy, .Ncal & Co.,
and other prominent citizens of Blooms
burg, on the satno sido.
Those who havo opposed it aro for tho
Democratic candidate ; and it may be as
well for the people of tho County to re
member that the career of Emanuel Laza
rus as a politician, is at any rate finished ;
and ho may as well round it off, if ho should
bo elected, by passing tho Market Strut
Sill, which his supporters desire, and to
which the proplc of the County arc opposed.
More than one man who affects to believe
his neck politically broken, is proceeding
to dig his grave by his present courso j and
nobody will bo surprised at any exhibition
of " grand and lofty tumbling."
We annex tho Card :
We speak to Union men when wo ad
dress the readers of tho Democrat. For
thoy ore such from education, from con
viction and from practice. Tho labors
and anxieties of the past havo woven tho
lovo of tho Constitution and tho interests
of our government into one, no event of
tho times can shako tho ancient loyalty of
the party to which wo belong. Our oppo
nents have taken a new step, instead of
fighting us uponi their old grounds and
taunting us for our loyalty and Union
lovo, they now assume great loyalty them-
uraw us irom tnoso ancient lauumancs
which havo ever been tho boast and clorv
. ' . i
ot our party, ijci us not do siiaiccn id our
firm purposes by their changes of name,
or now soinmcrsaults of principle . But
without heeding the epithets and slaudcr
by which they seek to provoko us in to dis-
Im-nlfcv. lp.fc u olinr fn t.lin old Cnnstifti-
tional doctrines of our fathers, and the '
new catch voto schemo of our opponents
will soon dio away.
30 THE ELECTORS OF COLUMBIA.
Fellow Cithent: Intimation nre ttfloat, ttmt tiie
political bug-lmar of tlio past frw years iz : tlist some
body. If elected to the Legislature- for Ibc next Session,
will favor the passage of an Act for the widening anil
straightening of Market Street In Dloomsburg at the cx
prnsc of the Tax-payers of Columbia County. The clr
culatton of a similar story last fall, on the eve of the
delegate elect'ons, by which nlouc the candidato of the
people's choice was defeated, cost the State over Ten
.Millions of Dollars, and will cost the people of Colum
bia county annually, Light Thousand Seven Hundred
find TwcntySix Dollars and Twenty Five Cunts. I nev
er was, aiu not iioav, nor never will be, in favor of tho
passageof such an Act, whether in or out of the Legis
lature. LEVI L. TATE.

Excbango of Certificates.
Dr. Bolecal, gave Gen. Fleming a cer
tificate, recently, through tho " Blooms,
burg Smut Ulachine," to tho effect, that
ho the said Gen. Fleming was a sound
Democrat and good Union-mau. Gen.
Fleming, in his great Speech, on the 14th
of September, in our Court House, proved
him the said Polecat Join, a malicious
falsifyer by publishing in his paper that
tho Democratic Party of Columbia, were
tho "Jeff Dnvis Reseives of the North,"
thus giving aid and comfort to tho South-
EUn Reuels, and was guilty of tho crime
Guanoed TiiEin Name. Tho " Re
publican" party is to bo known no more
forever. In less than six months after
their access to power, tho great Republican
party has been compelled to assumo a new
name, in the vain attempt thus to hide its
rotten and destructive principles. But it
won't do. Thoy havo tho same look,
smell and taste they had last fall, and
simple change of name will not be sufficient
to commend them to popular favor. Last
fall they laughed at the idea of tho Union
being in danger. But now that tho nation
is weeping over tho effects, ihey seek to
hide themselves under tho name of tho
"Union Party" the "Unconditional Union
Democraev.'' &c. &o. But wo tell them it

in reference to Mr. Baldy's having refused
