Democratic Nomination*.
Montour County Convention.
The Democracy of Montour met in Coun
ty Convention on last Monday and made
their regular county nominations. There
was a good turn out —every township rep
resented by two Delegates—and the pro
ceedings all passed off harmoniously—every
one seeming pleased with lite nominations
HON. SAMUEL OAKES received a unani
mous nomination by the Convention for
Assembly, subject to the District Confer
ence. The Convention concurred in the
nomination of HON. GLOBCE D. JACK-ON, of
Sullivan, and appointed Conferees with in
structions for the two ex-members. As for
Columbia county, we apprehend no ditfi
culty in those two men—Oakes and Jack
son—getting a unanimous nomination
They are deserving, capable and honest,
and in them we make a good choice.
WILLIAM C. JOHNSON, of Danville, received
the nomination for Register and Recorder
without a dissenting voice. He has served
the people for several years with credit to
himself and satisfaction to them. His elec
tion is sure.
FREDERICK BLUE, of Liberty, was nomina
ted for Sheriff over Daniel VVoodside.
WILLIAM SEIDEL, of Derry, received the
nomination for County Commissioner. The
proceedings in full will appear in our next.
DEI.ECATK ELECTIONS.—We wish the Demo- j
crats throughout the county to remember j
that Saturday a week is the day fixed for 1
holding their delegate elections. We hope
every one who has the interest of the party j
at iieart wilt attend and assist in electing
delegates who shall represent them in the l
County Convention. We should like it to!
be a fair expression of the wishes of the'
people, and the candidates nominated to bo |
those actually desired by a majority of the !
Democrats of the Courtly. When the peo- j
pie do not attend the delegate elections ; J
when they pay no attention to electing ;
delegates, they throw away a great privi-1
lege, and entrust that which they should all;
do, to the hands of a iew. We hope they I
will not do so this lime. This will be one j
of the most important conventions held in j
this county for a long lime, and we would j
therefore ask the people to attend to it.
ITAI.T AND THE WAR OF 1859 — This is the
title of a neat and well-written book, by JU
LIE MARGUERITTES, with an interesting intro
duction from the able pen of Dr. R. SHKL
TOM MACKENZIE, containing a Map of the
eeat of War, with portraits of the most
prominent actors in the late difficulties—
such as Louis Napoleon, Francis Joseph, Victor
Emanuel, and Ouri'ialJi. This little work
gives a pretty fair history of the late war,
including biographical sketches of its he
roes. It is well worth the price—one dollar
and a quarter. But we would state, upon
the receipt of one dollar, and twenty-one
cents to pay postage, G. G. EVANS, publish
er, and proprietor of the Original Gift Book
Establishment in Philadelphia, will send
you a copy of the book and a splendid gift.
It is no small volume ; it contains three
hundred and ninety-two pages ; handsomely
printed, upon good white paper. Send in
your orders to G. G. Evans, 439 Chestnut
Street, Philadelphia.
WE TAKE great pleasure in announcing
W'm. Saint Clair Clark, Agent for D. W.
Clark's Great Philadelphia Gift Book Eestab
lishment, will visit this place in a lew days,
and remain with us probably a week or
two, for the purpose of selling Books; As
far as we can learn, ho has given general
satisfaction wherever he has been. We
will just state, that you get the worth of
your money in the purchase of a book, and
a handsome gift besides. We stepped into
his rooms at Danville on last Monday and
purchased a book, to our own taste, at the
cost of one dollar, and was fortunate enough
to draw a five dollar prize. We then came
home rejoicing. In an other column of this
paper will be seen a more extended notice
of this Book Establishment which we copy
from the Milton Democrat. Read it.
THE Atlantic Cable is bound, it appears,
to be able before long to convey news from

The Atlantic Telegraph Company have
lately decided to make the conductor of the
next Cable consist of six wires, about six
times the size of the old one. The new
Cable is to bo guarantied in all respects, and
to be ready for business early next summer.

TIIE Slate Teachers' Associa'ion met at
West Chester on the 2d inst. The constitu
tion has been changed in respect to the
membership of females, who now mako an
annual payment of fifty cents, as the male
teachers hitherto have done. Dr. Parrish,
the head of the School for feeble minded
children, delivered a valuable discourse on
the proper education.
DANIEL E. SICKLES, of New York, it is
credibly announced, has voluntarily surren
dered his claims to represent the Third
Congressional District. The plan is now to
hold a special election, and it seems that
the contracting partios agree to nominate an
Auti-I.ecomptou Democrat.
Harvest Home.
On last Thursday the quiet little village of
Espy, übout two miles from Bloomsbnrg,
was alt alive with people. One of the largest
celebrations ol the kind ever witnessed in
this county was held at that place on said
day. People came from all directions, far
and near, old and young, large and small, to
participate in the grand demonstration,
which proved, as ii purported to be, a most
excellent affair. Extensive preparations
were made for the convenience anJ com
fort of all tho-e who were in a 'tendance and
participated in the exercises. The celebra
tion was an appropriate one, on a proper
occasion, and at a suitable pluce, right in
the midst of a thickly settled community,
composed of tillers ol rich and alluvial soil
We are an advocate of Farmers' Jubilees
when gotten up with the right kind of inten
tion. They should alway aim at the promo
tion of agricultural interests. With this
matter in view, was the one in question es
tablished, and effectually carried out, to the
| satisfaction, it is hoped, of ail who were
I present. The exercises of the day were
inviting and interesting ; calculated to bring
together a large assemblage of people.—
Speeches were delivered by able men—
practical orators—Dr. A. T. Brundage and
C. F. Bowman, Esq., of Wilkea-barre. A
stand was erected for the occasion in rearol
Mr. Hudson's Hotel, where all things passed
oil in order and harmoniously. Ihe ser-<
vices of HOWKK'S CORNKT BAND of Blooms
hurg, were appreciated at this celebration.
This Band was engaged to enliven the ex
ercises of the day with some of their most
excellent music. This company is, we are
informed, gaining golden opinions wherever
they go. Success to them.
The citizens of Espy and vicinity are de- J
serving of considerable credit in the getting j
up of this demonstration. They are certain
ly a go-a-headative class of people—leave
nothing fail they undertake.
The two landlords spared no pains in ma
king preparations to accommodate the three
thousand people which were supposed to have
been present. No small amount of eatables
could satisfy the devouring propensities of
so large a crowd.
The wire-walking across the river, a dis
tance of twelve hundred feet, and in the neigh
borhood of fifty or sixty feet above the wa
ter, by THEODORE M'D. PRICE, was no small
feature in the exercises ol the day. It is
said that this feat was accomplished noltly,
in less than twelve minutes It is certainly
a very daring and wonderful feat to be per
formed by man. He ascended the post to
which the wire was attached about 1 o'clock,
P. M., a little before the advertised lime, on
account of the wind ra-ing more the longer
he delayed the hazardous feat
Very few men live in this or any other
country who could have performed this feat
Blondin, the Frenchman, will have to look
to his laurels.
Hugh Slowell Drown, of Liverpool, has been

good production, using familiar language
with familiar illustrations. The contents of
the book are as follows : The Lord's Prayer,

over a new Leal, Take care of number one,
Penny Wise and Pound Foolish, Cleanliness

In Rev. Dr. Adams' discourse at the funeral
of Mr. Clioale the following passage occurs:
"A very short time before he was to
deliver his address belore the New England
Society at New York, f asked him if he
had written it. 'Not the seven thousandth
part of a word,' was his idiomatic answer.
'But,' said he, 'I believe that I shall appro
priate a speech made at Park Street Church
the other evening.' It was a charge at the
ordination of ayounglriend from Geneva,
who was to labor as an Evangelist in Cana
da. Coming as the candidate did from Ge
neva it was natural for any one who ad
dressed him to speak ot the Puritans in
their connection with Geneva. The few
unambitious words on that topic, on that
occasion, reported®!! a newspaper, were an
accidental spark which entered the furnace
chamber of his great mind, and kindled it
for a performance which will not soon be
forgotten. It was like him thus to recognize
one who had done him a service even un
intentionally; nor did he fear the imputation
of plagiarism ; for his taking of another
man's thoughts was as when the sun pla
giarises the waters, and turns them into
showers, and rainbows, and gorgeous sun
sets, and harvests, and grass upon the
mountains, and herbs for the service of
Pope's Eloise to Abelard is said to have a
resemblance to Crashaw's "Elegies on St.
Alexis." Hayley in defending Pope from
plagiarism' says :
"If Pope borrowed anything from Cra
shaw in this article, it was only as the sun
borrows from the earth, when drawing front
thence a mere vapor, he makes it the de
light of every eye, by giving it all the tender
and gorgeous coloring of heaven."— Boston

MH. KniTOR—DESR Sin: In the Demo
crat of Aug. Bill I nolice an article over the
signature of W. P. TEITSWORTH, announcing
a church organization; nl-o an attempt at a
history of the rise ami progress of Christian
ity in the section of country located about
the head waters of Fishingereek. 'iruth,
Justice, and Religion, demands a reply to
that article; or at least that portion of it cal
culated to mislead the minds of ihoe who
may be ignorant of the real truth. With the
Old Lop Church and those pioneers who
caused its erection, I have nothing to do,
and concerning them nothing to say. Surely
it must be an object of exceeding interest
when H man of education assures us that
thuse who have not worshiped there "could
not improve llteinselve# better than by go
ing ten or eleven miles to enjoy the treat."
Mark not to hear the gospel, for this the
Rev Gentleman says is not very inviting as
he presents it—(and in this 1 assure him
most of the inhabitants dwelling around the
"old log church" concur! but a treat we in
fer from the article to sit and gaze upon lite
weather stained logs that compose the buil
ding. The venerable relics of other days ;
(perhaps the Rev. Gentleman finds it a treat
to -'hold forth" to the same old logs ) The
scenery around the old church is truly in
teresting. but all this display of the Kev'd
Teilsw orlh's descriptive faculties does not
excuse the gross and palpable misrepresen
tations that follow. He 6ays that, "after the
Episcopalians had abandoned the ground
the Unitarians or Millerites came in and took
possession of the field." This is not only a
misrepresentation but an absolute falsehood.
First, I aver the Unitarians never haSli So
ciety 011 the waters of Fishingcreek. Sec
ond, there never was a Society of the peo
ple formerly called Millerites (How extinct!
in existence in the neighborhood referred
to, and if Mr. T. has been otherwise inform
ed this will set him right ott the point. But
I plainly see what the Rev. Gentleman is
aiming at. There are at the present time
several flourishing societies of the people
known as Christians, in existence on Fish
ingcreek, and it is these people who are
thus vilely misrepresented in the article re
ferred to. They claim no other name, an
swering to none other. They hold to the
unity or Oneness of God, but are. as distinct
from the Unitarians as they are from the
Presbyterians. For many years they have
maintained their position on the creek and
were regularly organized churches before,
long belore Millerism had an existence any
where. Whatever the Rev Gentleman may
say or do let him remember the divine pre
cept, "Thou shall not bear false witness
against thy neighbor" Again ho says ":hey
have been active in sowing the seeds of
heresy". Who made him a Judge in these
matters'! I want no better evidence of an
intolerable bigot than hearing him cry wolf
or heretic. Wiio were the first to cry heresy
in the days of Romish cruelty and persecu
tion but those blood thirsty mons'ers them
selves. Let us look for a moment at the
grounds ol the organization of these Chris
1. We are Christians to the exclusion of
all the names ol fnctiun and party, but not to
lite exclusion of the pood ol any parly.
2. The Bible is our Rule to the exclusion
of the creeds, covenants, disciplines and
articles of Faith, ever prepared by uninspir
ed men and imposed upon the church
3 Christian Character ie our only lest of
fellowship and communion to the exclusion
ol all the Shibboleths of party and tests of
bigotry ever urged upon the humble loliow
ers of Christ.
These are the principles which the Rev.
T. is pleased to call heresy atid place side
by side with Mormanism. " 0 Bigotry
whete is thy shame !" We will bow to his
superlative wisdom and say with Paul the
Apostle, "After the way which they call
heresy so worship I the God of my Fathers,
&c." This was uttereo by the venerable
servant ol God when accused in like man
ner by a like spirit. One thing is true how
ever, the Christians on Fishingcreek have
been active in sowing the seeds of liberal
Christianity, and Mr. Teitsworth may yet
learn that the acknowledgement of Lyman
Beecher, "That it is too late in the day to
cram creeds down the throats of intelligent
men," will be true in his case. Again, the
Democrat's correspondent says, "Ignorant
men have risen up pretending to be teach
ers of God's word," &c. What k : nd of men
have arisen among Mr. T's shadowy Unita
rians and formless Hitlerites, dwelling a
round the old Log Church. I cannot say,
but one thing is ceriain, the christians have,
as far as 1 can learn, sustained preaching if
not by men possessed of as much superfici
al education, by those endowed with quite
as much of nature's great gift, common sense,
ar.d whose labors have been blessed in the
conversion of men from the bondage and
thralldom of sin, or brought from under the
galling yoke of Sectarianism, as many who
boast of such wonderful attainments.
Well has it beer, for some men that schools
have been established to fill up the vacuum
that Dame Nature has left uusupplied Was
not this the case 1 fear some pulpits would
ever, now be vacant. Another expression
is, ''many of them are wolves in sheep's
clothing, palming themselves off as angels
of light," &c This vituperation of the Rev.
Gentleman sounds very like the language of
a certain class in olden times, who said to
their neighbors, "stand thou by, come not
near me, I am holier than thou," and as the
meok and lowly Redeemer, Jesus, the son
of the living God, openly rebuked tins class
when tabernacling in the flesh. Even now
would he say to the Rev. T. forsooth, first
pull the beam out of thine own eye ere you
attempt to pluck the mote from thy broth
er's eye Once more, lam aware that there
are a great many good people about the Mills
referred to, and not nay heathens as we would
inler there are from the expression that "a
brighter day is about to dawn upon this
people." I would recommend however as
a medium by which the light or brightness
is communicated, a truthful and Christian
man, and not one who will falsely accuse a
neighborhood and people. In accordance
with the wishes of a community, who feel
themselves outraged, and many friends who
are not willing to be thus misrepresented,
to a candid public, I have penned this
sketch. Of doctrines I have said nothing;
with Mr. T. and myself this may be an after
consideration, but above ull things let IVuth
prevail. J. G. NOBLE.

CLAIR CI.AHK. Aaeni lor ft. W. {CLARK'S Great
Philadelphia Gilt Book Establishment re
ceutly visiied this place, and dij an exteci
sive business
Although somewhat allied to the Gill
Book Enterprise oursell we are free to
coniess Mr. CI.ARG a gentleman of honor,
and u lair dealer with his patrons. He was
one ot the first to inaugurate this mode of
selling books—one ot the pioneers in the
Gift Book Enterptise. Until within the
last two years, ha was an equal partner in
the business with G. G. Evans, who is said
to be the originator ol the Gift Book Sales
in the United Slates. We do not hesitate
to say that of the hundreds of dollars worth
of hooks sold, and gilts dislriouied, by Wrn.
Saint Clair Clark, while in Milioti, not one
purchaser has signified Ihe least cause ol
complaint. All are satislied ; probably the
strongest evidence that the fullest salisfac
tion was in all instances given.
The indorsement o! the leading Publish
ing Houses in the United States, and the al
most unanimous and unreserved -upport of
the press, have sustained him from the
first of his dealings with the public, and we
have yet to hear, against him the first word
of complaint or censure.
In purchasing of Mr. Clark the buyer
has nothing to lose, and everything to gain;
for the Gift System is no lottery as many
have been prejudiced lo suppose; if it were
there would be a hazard or possibility of
loss to the investment, of which '.here is
none. It is known lo the purchaser that he
is to receive an equivalent for his money ;
the book selected is furnished at Publishers
prices, which are.usually from twenty to
twenty-five per cent., less than they are
sold Dy booksellers generally. Aside from
this investment, which returns an equiva
lent, a present is made with each purchase,
which be it worth filty cents or one hundred
dollars, is yet clear gain.
It is a cause of wonderment to many
who have benefited themselves, by giving
him their patronage, that he can render a
business profitable, when conducted on so
liberal a system. It is for this very reason
that he is successful The channel of trade
is always diverted to that course whicll af
fords the most marked facilities, so that
when the regular dealer finds difficulty in
circulating but a few of his publications,
the Gift System will easily dispose of thou
The majority of expenses in publishing
arise frnm the cost of Stereotyping and ad
vertising. the outlay being nearly the same
whether two thousand or twenty thousand
copies of a book be disposed of. If a
book be successful, the average cost is
comparatively small, if otherwise, the
pubilcation MAY prove-a IOSB. ff the
sale of a publication could be insured, the
price of books as with all other goods would
fait to a much lower standard
Through the Gift System Mr. CLARK in
sures the sale of the publications that he
may advertise. If a new book is issued,
he first ascertains if it is of a high standard
of merit, and if so, he purchases in large
quantities, often an entire edition, and in
variably pays ash, advertising the book
himself. Thus he saves the publisher a
heavy expense,and protects him from heavy
loss, and it is quite evident that he can ob
tain his books at nearly one half the price
paiil by those who buy a few at a time on
the cretlit system.
As with the books so with the gifts, lav
ishing!)-sea terei! among his patrons His
goods are manufactured for, or imposed to,
him direct, economising the many profits
which accumulate before the same class of
goods reach the final purchaser.
We reiterate, distinctly that this system is
no lottery. The gilts which he advertises
accompany the every instance
The Enterprise commends itself, the plan
of operation being plain, simple and hon
orable. To persons whose means are limited
the opportnnity is presented of possessing a
valuable libtary, at a comparatively small
outlay. From the manner in which he
has arranged his enterprise—a secret
known to himself alone—the value of a gift
does not depend in the ieast upon the price
of the book purchased, for olten a person
purchasing a dollar book obtains a gift
worth from fifty to a hundred dollars.
