DemocraHc Nomination*.
■ ;
lion. JL Cilancy Jonc*,
Agreeably to adjournment, the Senatorial
Conference of the district, composed of the
counties of Columbia, Montour, Northum
berland and Snyder, met at Eckbert's Hotel,
in Milton, on Saturday last, Sopt. 26ih.—
From Columbia, Geo. Scott, and Peter Bill
myer, substituted by Emanual Lazarus, ap
peared; from Montour, Daniel Biilmyer,
and TLomas Chalfant, from Northumber
land, W. L- Dewari, and ; and from
Snyder, Merrill and Dr. Auhl.
Upon meeting, the Columbia Coumy Con
ferees voted for Buckalew; Montour for Col.
McCorraick; Northumberland, for Geo. C.
Welker, and Snyder for Major Keller.
The balloting continued with various
changes, during the afternoon. The name
of John Mcßnynolds was also introduced,
and hallo ed for. After considerable irregu
larity in the phase of the vote, Snyder
county led oft'for Buckalew, and the vote
of Montour and Columbia gave him the
Hon. W, L. Detrart, in a very handsome
and complimentary speech, moved that the
nomination be made unanimous, which
was agreed to; and the conference adjourn
ed in the best feeling. The nomination was
made on the 105 th ballot, and must be
highly satisfactory to the parly.
We shall give the official proceedings in
cur next issue.
Yes: and the extravagance, thoughtless
speculation and wild debt-making has caus
ed this panic over which its authors now
lament. Everybody went into business with
borrowed capital and trying to forget that
pay-day would ever come. Ranks were
borrowed dry by men who could not pay
half their debts, aud then, lust winter eight
millions and a half more of banking capitxl
was created by act of Assembly and thrown,
before the people to tempt, corrupt, and de
bauch, the public mind iuto profiagacy aud
general bankruptcy.
Prices went mad. Traduce and labor all
got fabulous sums; but neither labor nor
produce will have any riches left them un
der the general collapse.
The result must be a return to first prin
ciples and the financial world must learn
that business can only be safely done on
actual and real- capital and not on its ficti
tious representative.
Some of the Philadelphia Banks have
suspended specie payments—nearly all of
them raluse to pay deposits. The best
among them have and will weather through
the storm. The Gerard and Pennsylvania
bank, which have grown fat by State favors,
are at tho head and front of this movement
for a general suspension. They are old
offenders and after abusing now the gener
ous confidence of the public, on which they
tied grown rich, they ought to be severely
dealt with.
Nearly one half of the country banks have
also suspended.
On last Saturday a rush was made upon
the Danville bank and it soon declined to
pay depositors anything, but during Satur
day paid note holders.
Gov. bollock has issued a proclamation
railing together the legislature on the Bth of
October. But after wliat happened in that
body last winter no person having any wit
will expect any other than mischievous re
sults from this session of seven days.
Let no suspension be legalized There
is no necessity for it, if the country is one
half as prosperous and wealthy as these
Bank borers represented it to bo last winter
when "they bored through charters for eight
millions and a half new banking capital.—
Let the legislature send back those borers
to their haunts of infamy aud maintain a
constitutional currency for our Common
wealth; instead of branding her. with the
lie of bankruptcy.
FIRE IN TAUAQCA— That town was again
visited by another destructive -firs on Mon
day evening last at about 11 o'clock, that

at $lO,lBO. It is supposed to have been the
work of an incendiary.

In its movements. It has a lieart lor action

Democracy is to principle, it is the soul
of action. It conforms 10 the providence of
God. It has confidence in man and an abi
ding reliance in his high destiny. It seeks
the largest liberty the greatest good, and
the surest happiness. It aims to buildup
the great interests of the many, to the least
detriment of the few. It remembers the
past without neglecting the present. It es
tablishes the present, without foaring to
provide for the future. It cares for the
Weak, while it permits no injustice to the
strong. It conquers the oppressor, and pre
pares the subject of tyranny for freedom.—
It melts the bigot's heart to meekness, and
reconciles his mind to knowledge. It dis
pels the cloud of ignorance and superstition,
prepares the people for instruction, and
self-respect. It adds wisdom to legislation,
and improved judgement to government
It favors enterprises that yields to many,
and an industry that is permanent. It is

of nations. It fails only when it ceases to
be true to itself. It will quench the fire of
Republicanism an 3 hush the brawliugs of
The following, from the Berks and Schnyl
kill Journal, the Wilmot and Republican or
gan in Berks county, we commend to the
atteniion of the citizens of ofiftr counties,
as showing in what estimation our candi
date for Judge of the Supreme Court is held
at home, even by his political opponents:—
Reading Gazelle.
"The nomination of Mr. Strong will elicit
a large vote in his favor not only from his
own party, but from those who stand in the
position of political opponents, and this
will be the case not alone in Berks, but
wherever he is known. Mr. S. is a gradu
ate of Yale College, which he left with the
highest honor. His legal career commenc
ed in this county, where his talents soon
plnced him at the head of the bar. He rep
resented thiscouflty in Congress two terms,
and declined are election. To legal abili
ties of the highest order, he adds great in
dustry and power of application to business,
and the unimpeachable integrity of his
character, his sympathy with all business
enterprises tb it have added to the prosper
ity of this city, and his. private virtues,
have secured him universal respect and
the affectionate regards of this community.'
In snying this we do but justice to a politi
cal opponent."
Amendmeuis lo the Constitution.
Tjie citizens of Columbia county should not
forget that they will be called on at the elec
lion in October, to vote in reference to some
important amendments to thn State Constitu
tion. They will be found in an other part of
this paper. There are four alterations pro
posed, and they will have to be voted on
separately, that i, on four Tickets. They
are !
1. In relation to the creation ol Public
2. In reference to the erection of new coun
3. In relation lo the Legislative Appoint
ments, and the election in certain cases of
Representatives by single districts.
4. In relation to fhsrtrrs 0 f incorporation,
pri-posing to give the Legislature power lo
alter and revoke anf charter when deemed
neoessary. w
This is not a parly measure, but il should
receive the attention of every citizen.
TUB ILL-FATED STEAMER.— The loss of the
Central America still continues to excite pub
lic attention, The adjourned meeting at New
York on behalf of the eofferers resulted in '
the collection of #8,086. This, added lo $2,-
000 already collected at Norfolk, makes $lO,-
085. It is presumed, from the hearty re
sponse of the publio, that the amount con
tributed in New York will not fall short of
The Steamship Company have made no
further statement relative to the loss of the
ship. The investigation has been thus far
conducted in private. The expense of bring- j
ing on the survivors to this eity has been paid
by the company.
LEGISLATIVE— It seems difficult for the
Opposition to find candidates for Assembly,
considering the desperate small chances of
their election. The chances are too small
to tempt any one to indulge in a contest.- '
The last report nominates Dr. Brower, the
editor of tho Danville American, and some
body in Sullivan county. The Conferees

A DiFfEßr.Nct.—the Black Republican
papers in all parts of the State are engaged
in publishing notioea complimentary to Mr.
Wilmot, taksn from Democratic journals at a
lime when that gentleman was acting with
the Democralie party, and contrasting litem
with what the same papers say of Mr. Wil
mot's course at the present time. Well wbal
does that prove? Gen. Washington praissd
Arnold when he was fighting for the liberties
of his country, but when be turned traitor
and joined the enemy he changed his opin

treatooable acts,
f3T The Store of James Mott & Co., in |
Piltston, Luzerne county, wts robbed on <
Sunday night, 13th inst. An entrance was 1
effected through a window. The robber or!
robbers then went to the iron safe, unlocked
it, and took oat between four and five hun
dred dollar*—having the magnanimity to
leave untouched juat twenty cents. The safe I
was then locked, and every thing put in pre-'
cise order, as it wis left on Saturday evening.

Wllmot's Oratory'
We all renumber, yrith what luxuriance
of adjectives and intensity of fulsome adu'la
lion, iho opposition press proclaimed the or
atorical exceljenoe of Mr- Wilmol, and the
exultation wjth which they prated of the
fear whiob Gen. Packer entertained 'of this
dread champion. This, we muit not forget,
wae before the people bed had enjr oppor
tunity of hearing anything about the justice
of these panegyrics. Now, smce hia real
merits are not shrouded in the mists of dis
tance and ignorance, we have- ceased to
hear anything further of this mighty orator,
who was to otry away spell-bound the
hearts and beet affections of the voters of the
Wherever he goes, he meets witb but poor
i reception, and leaves without a regret from
I his party friends. Iq Clarion, Meadsille,
| Franklin and Mercer, he has been received
by comparatively small numbers, less than
en ordinary town meeting. Tna humilialgig
fact is, that his pilgrimage through the State
has been an utter failure. The people are
sick of abolition harangues, and are begin
ning to suspect the rest truth, that there is
nothing but trickery in the Kansas excite
ment, upon which he has been pleased to
base his entire hopes of success. This cam
paign will be known through coming time
as that which was conducted by one of the
parties with an utter disregard of all tilate in
terest and the ignoring of its true issues.
' Wilniol declared at Clarion that in almost
| every instance, but his first speech in Phila
j delphia, he had addressed himself to State
questions of policy. Now if we are not
grieviuusly mistaken, Mr. Wilmot ie. In ooe
of his last speeches at Mercer, 1 e avoided
tbem altogether, and in no one speech of
which we have yet seen an account, do we
how recall an instance in which he even al
luded to them except in the most distant and
supeificial manner, W'lh the single exception
of that at Clarion, where he was forced to it
by the previous address of Gov. Bigler.
Ilia entire stock in trade, is apologies for
his 'proviso,' whose introduction was fraught
with so much injury; threadbare tirades upon
( he horrors of slavery, and assaults upon the
consistency of others. All this will do him
but hllle good with the honest and intelligent
voters of our Commonwealth, who would
much prefer to hear from him, aome inti
mations as to the probable course he would
pursue as our Stale Governor, and nor as the
representatives of New Kngland abolition
ism.— Pittsburg Union.
The Subsidized Prest. —ln the Daily Hews
of the 21st met., Mr. H. B.Swoope, Chairman
of the American State Committee, publishes
a list of fifteen newspapers in the inteiior ol
this State, which were subsidized or paid (or
their support to Fremont last fall. The list
was furnished by Gov. Ford, of Ohio, for the
New York Herald , to rebut the charge that he
had misappropriated the sum ol $20,000,
which the Herald says was placed in his
hands to subsidize the press of Pennsylvania.
Mr. Swoope says he does not say that the pa
pers referred to received the money, which
is a question between them and Gov. Ford.
The amount said to have been paid to the
fifteen was $6,490, in sums from $l,OOO to

Elmira Coal Dealers is about being arranged
by which the shipping of coal over the road
will be continued. Whether hangdon & Co.
have agreed to pay the 10 cents per ton more
demanded by the Company, we are unable
to say. The continuance of thn coal trade to
IClniira is of coneiderrble importance to the
Sttamokin region.— Sunbury Gazelle.
ET'Last week some ol our merchants were
engaged in identifying a number of articles
of dry goods which had been stolen from
their stores by a woman, somewhat notori
ous in these parts, residing in the country,
several miles from town. Shop lifting had
been carried on by the enterprising lady for
some months previous to her detection, the
articles stolen being principally cheap dry
goods, to the amount of some forty dollars.
We understand that Frilling & Grant Engle,
E. Y. Bright & Son, end Tener, bad been
contributors to her snpply of clothing. After
a hearing before Squire Shindle, Sheriff
Weise provided her with accommodations
in the county jail; but she was subsequently
bailed out.— Sunbury Gazelle.
necticut clergymen to whom President Bu
chanan gave so scorching a reply, will not be
put down by argument. They fre out again
in a three column article, addressed to the
President, going over very muoh the same
ground as before; that is, that usurpation,
like that in Kansas, cannot beget a valid gov
ernment ; and that by recognizing the territo
rial government, the President had violated
his duty. These views do not acquire any
additional force by iteration. The President's
answer to the first letter embraced all that
was necessary to be said in reply to the as
sertions in the second. The controversy, so
far as he is concerned, is in all probability
ended.— Ledger.
rv in Poltsville, last Saturday, William
Spence waa convicted of assault and battery
upon Col. Straub, and sentenced to 30 ueye

rioters who so seriously beat Mr. Straub on
the night of the election last October. Aa the
Sheriff was taking him from the Court House
to the Jail, he broke loose and escaped ! He
has not yet been caught.
