tains a letter from Gen. McClellan to
President Linooln giving his views iu rela

by overy true patriot. His many friends
cannot but admire his boldness in speak

It exhibits him not as a military man only
but as a statesman, and had his counsel
prevailed over that of tho radicals, wc
cannot but believe that tho war would havo

of this patriotio General will feci proud of

some important arrangements and valua
ble improvements in tho futuro conduct of
tho Columbia Democrat. Its position as
the organ of tlio Democracy of Columbia
county demands this and tho liberal pat
ronage awarded it, will fully justify the
inoreased expenditure. Wo intend to do
our duty, in all the material efforts of a
faithful journalist, to maintain and perpet

old organ of the Doraocraey, and wo trust
our friends, in tho futuro as in tho past,
will not be wanting in liberality or patri

is tho approbation of his constituency.
Tho samo is applicable, to the labors of an

Private Papers and Letters of tho Fathert

is a record of thrilling interest and remark
able truthfulness. Wo invite to its care
ful consideration tho close attention of Dr.
Pee John, and all his "loyal" co-laborers
who are the lineal decendants of tho Old
Intolerance and Impudence. Dr. John
is growing intolerably insolent because
ho has not been removed from the Post

of the Republicans and nearly all the

that a largo minority of tho prosent Con

The Dead Lock in the Senate.
There is a little history bearing on this
quostion. A somowhat similar oaso oc
curred in 1854. when the Senate stood 17
Domoorata to 10 Opposition. Mr. Buck
alow, who was elected a member, having
been sent by tho Presideut to South
Ainoriua as a bearer of dispatches, failed
to reach homo in timu for the meeting of
mo legislature, l ins tied the senate.
But subsequently tho death of a Democratio
membor gave the majority to tho opposi
tion in the oontinucd absence, of Mr. Buck
alew, Nevertheless aDeraoorat,Mr. Wm.
M. Ileister, of Berks couuty was chosen
Speaker by tho vote of Mr. Dursic, oppo
sition of Alleghony, who correctly decidod
that tho Democrats wero entitled to this
offico by the popular will as declared at
tho preceding eleotion. Why can't tho
Democrats be as honest aa wo wero in
1854? Smut Machine.
Dr. Joiin, wilfully perverts tho Record.
In tho first placo, nothing of the kind, to
which ho refers, occurrod in 1854. It was
Iu the second placo, when tho Senate
met in 1855, it was composed of 31 mem
bers. Mr. Foulkrod was dead and Mr.
Buckalcw was absent, Leaving 15 Dom
ocrats and 15 Know-nothings, with Mr.
Dausie, an old lino Whig, whom these
follows had just defeated for Canal Com
missionor, because he was born iu Scot
land. In return for their know-nothing
treason, Mr. Darsio refused to coalesco
with them, and Senator Huistkk, aDem
oorat was elected Speaker of tho Senate.
-Tho "Smut Machine," of last week,
meanly intimated, that tho Commissioners
had rejused to re-appoint Col. Freeze as
Counsel; Then sneakingly added, ho
would doubtless accept the offioial crumbs.
And all this attempt at defamation, when
all decent peoplo hero well know, that as
Col. F. had just entered upon tho dis
charge of his new duties, as Register and

The despondent lono which is said to
pervade tho message of tho President of
tho Southern Confederacy has inflated
into exultation tho hopes of many of our
cotomporarics, that thero will bo a speedy
termination of tho war in tho ultcr pros
tration of the South. Wo confess that wo
cannot roflcctingly participate in those glad
some provisions. Tho mossago is to all
appearances, candid and truthful, furnish
ing iu detail a full account of all tho dis
asters roccntly incurred by tho South, but
exhibiting no faltering of spirit, as to tho
chances of ultimate success.
In tho Revolutionary war, when Wash
ington's army was reduced to tho fraction
of a brigade, and despair depressed tho

Such, we conccivo, tho spirit .cxhibtcd in

calmness indicate, that in his opinion at
loast tho South is as yet unconquerable.
This faot it intimates in conjunction with
tho statcmoBt of tho hopelessness of for

The Democratic Party not Dead.
The Springfield (Majs.) Republican is
one of tho fow Administration papers that

which there is more truth and sense than
you can find in the Now York Tribune in
a whole year :
"Thero is a general jubilation in the
Republican papers over the assumed death
of the Democratic party. They had bet
ter not take mat tor granted. A party that
has just thrown moro votes than ever be
fore in evory State except Massachusetts,
and has been beaten only by
tho most extraordinary efforts, can hardly
be conbidored quite dead. The
msral of the political situation of the Re
publican leaders is, that they havo no such
excess of strength as To make it safo for
them to bo reckless or dofiaut as to moans
or measures ; that they are Btill on trial
before tho American peoplo, as to their
ability and integrity in the conduct of the

to obtain a renew lease of power by de
monstrating that tiioy can and will use it
for the general welfare, rather than for
