' Resolved, That the Democratic Electoral
Ticket be headed with the name of Stephen
A. Douglas or John C. Breckinridge, as an
Elector at large, an J in the event of the cue
cess of said ticket, if the greater number of
votes shall have been cast for Stephen A.
Dooglas, then the vote of the Electoral Col
lege of the State shall be cast for Stephen
A. Douglas and Herschet V. Johnson for
President and Vice President, but if for
John C. Breckinridge, then for John C.
Breckinridge and Joseph Lane for the same
offices. If the vote of Pennsylvania cannot
elect the candidates (or whom a majority ot
the votes are cast, and it can elect any man
running for the office of President of the
United States, claiming to be a Democrat,
then the vole of the Electoral College shall
be cast for that candidate. If it will not
elect of the Democrats for whom it is ca.t,
or any of the Democrats who are voted for
in tbe States, then the vote stall be cast for
the candidate who has the majority of the
rotes of the State ; and that the Chairman
of this Committee be instructed to obtain
from the gentlemen on the Democratic
Electoral ticket of this State their several
and distinct pledges of acquiescence in the
foregoing resolution, and to report the result
of his action in the premises at the next
meeting of the Committee.
The friends of Breckinridge, Lake and
Foster, erected on last Saturday afternoon,
between the boors of five and six. o'clock,
in Ea6t Bloomsburg, near tbe residence of
Mr. Henry Wanich, a magnificent hickory
pole, not much short of one hundred feet in
length, with a streamer on the top, and a
splendid flag bearing the names of Breck
inridge, List and Foster, our gallant
Democratic nominees. Quite a large and
respectable number of Democrats partici
pated in this raising, considering the little
notice that was given. It was not publish
ed by large flaming hand-bills or otherwise,
that such a demonstration vas to be made,
bat still the gathering would not have fallen
much short in numbers of that of the Re
publican Mass Meeting held in this place
not long since. We understand that this
demonstration was gotten up by the work
ingmen of Bloom Furnace and that vicinity.
Everything was welt arranged, and the pole
raised quite handily, notwithstanding it
being an uncommon heavy one for its
cheers were given for the candidates whose
names were inscribed on the flag, when
CoL L. L. Tate was called upon, who made
some very appropriate remarks on the po
litical questions of the day. He was after--wards
followed by John G. Freeze, Esq.,
who chanced to come by on his return from
a political canvassing tour. He rose in his
buggy and dealt out to the Republican par
ty some pretty hard hits, not forgetting to
pay Mr. Curlin and bis supporters a few
left-handed compliments in relation to tbe
tariff, and thereby fully establishing the fact
that Mr. Foster u, and always has been, a
tariff man an advocate of a judiciom tariff
and Mr. Ccrtth only a trafficking preten
der, a roan who has been, pitch-forked into
public notoriety, like many others of his
class of men, by tbe Know-Nothing organi
zation of 1854. The speaker was frequent
ly interrupted by out-bursts of applause.
We had almost forgotten to mention that
there was a sufficient number of Democrat
ic ladies present to set to flight half the Re
publicanKworshippers in this place. -

- The Delegates elected to represent the
Democratic party in Montour county, met
ia Convention on Monday last, at the Court
House ia Danville, and placed in nomina
tion a ticket to be supported by the Demo-
.crauc pan ot uiai county ai iuo eusuiu
election. Tbe Convention was called to
order, and proceeded to business, by the
appointing of John Shearer, President, al
ter which the delegates ot the different
districts presented their credentials and
were admitted to seats. ...
1 On motion the Convention proceeded to

Bell and Everett Meeting . ..
; There will be a meeting of the friends of
Bell and Everett held in the Court House
at this place on Wednesday evening the
29th inst., to which men of all political or
ganizations are invited. It is not under
stood positively whowill address the meet
ing; but from the number of speakers an
nounced on their haud-bills, as enlisted in
the cause of Bell and Everett, the occasion
will not be without one or more able orators.
The names of Hon Henry M. Fuller, David
Paul Brown, Esq., Hon Joseph R. Ingersoll,'
James W. Burns, Esq , and many others of
equal ability and celebrity, apjsear on the
hand-bills, ready to discuss the political
topics of the day. No doubt but this Mass
Meeting will be more largely attended than
was the "Republican Mass Meeting'' held
at this place on the 9th, although this party
commandsabout the same strength through
out this State that the Fillmore party did
in 1856. They may carry one or two States;
but they have not the slightest chance of
carrying States sufficient , to interfere with
the election of John C. Brkckinkidoe to the
next Presidency of these Uned States.
A meeting will be held in Catlawissa on
Thursday, the day following the meeting in
The State Fair.
The advertisement for the next State Fair
to be held on the Wyoming Battle grounds,
on the 25ih, 26th, 27th and 28th of Septem
ber, appears in to-day's Star, by which it
will be seen that the Society are making
active preparations for their coming annual
exhibition. The Wilkesbarre Union, in re-
fering to the doings of the Society, says :
"In addition to the present buildings they
invite proposals for the erection of 6uch oth
er Saloons, ice, as will beyond doubt ac
co mm ad ate the vast concourse of people
from all parts of this and adjoining States
who will be in attendance. It is now con
ceded, we believe, on all hands, that the
State Society acted wisely in their selection
of the site for this year's Fair, The histor
ic interest that cluster round the very spot
on which the exhibitiou will be held the
unrivaled beauty and attractiveness of our
Valley the productive wealth that lines
the whole course of the Susquehanna its
accessibility by Railroad, and the desire on !
the part of almost everybody to visit this
region, will form at once a combination of
attractions that will fill thn Fair Grouuds
throughout the whole exhibition."
The Lvzerne Union, a strong Douglas
paper, and the leading organ in Luzerne
county, in speaking of the action of the
State Executive Committee and itt compro
mise, says :
''We note the fact that many Demo
crats in this section approve the action of
the Committee. It the party then, unitedly
accept this compromise, we have, in our
view, but one plain duty to perform, and
the State of Pennsylvania will carry Henry
D. Foster triumphantly into the Guberna
torial Chair, and when that shall have been
done, it will end the possibility of electing
Abram Lincoln to the Presidency. The first
duty of every Democrat now is to stop quar
reling with his brother Democrat, and go to
work for the defeat of the common enemy.
Enough time has been lost in the adjust
ment of our own quarrelslet them now
be considered as ended forever. We have
another chance at the fanaticisms of tbe
day another battle is to be fought on the
field of the Union, for the preservation of its
integrity and the perpetuity of true consti
tutional principles. A victory now in this
State will arrest tLe march of the legions of
error, acd one way or the other result in
the vindication of national principles. We
may now, if we will, arise like a giant from
slumber, refreshed and invigorated, and
with banners blazing with victory, assert
and maintain our position at the helm of
Abolitionism. We never knew an aboli
tionist that was not a tyrant in his own
family, or among those over whom he had
control. We never knew an abolitionist,
that did not strain bis mental vision, to dis
cover cruelty "way down south," when he
could not see the suffering at his own door.
We never knew an abolitionist who would
treat a negro with anything like fraternal
regard, alter be had enticed him from his
Look now, at Lowell and Lynn, and
throughout the east, which has been for
years, the hot-bed of that hopeless fanati
cism. Witness the present conflict between
these abolitionists and their slaves. Thirty
thousand sons aud daughters of toil are on
a strike, for a fair compensation for their
labor, which is denied to them by those
who would spend large sums to import the
"darkies from the south." Their white
breth'ern around them are "guilty of a skin,
colored as their own," and therefore they
can not do anything for them. But if a
"nigger" should come along to lecture on
tbe wrongs of his race, they would flock to
his standard and sustain and encourage him
by every effort.
The Pittsburg Post, the leading Douglas
organ in Western Pennsylvania, endorses
the action oi the Committee, in speaking
of the plan of Union adopted, says :
'. "We shall sustain it, because it will give
a united vote in Pennsylvania for the Dem
ocratic cause. We shall sustain it, because
it leaves to the people themselves the
source of all power the solution of the dif
ficulties which have arisen. We shall sus
tain it, because we believe it will bring out
the largest Democratic vote which the State
of Pennsylvania ever cast in a Presidential
election. . And above all, we shall sustain it
as the best means of showing to the coun
try and the enemies of Mr. Douglas the
strength wbieh he has in the hearts of the
people of the Keystone State. . We have no
doubt that there are a few extremists on
both sides, to whom this compromise will
be doubtful.' Let them bury their pride of
opinion and personal preferences, and go in
heart and hand for , the common cause of
Democratic success ia the coating cam
paign." . . ..

Accident. at BanTille
i We learn from various sources, that an
accident happened at Danville, on Wednes
day last, by the breaking down of a Bridge,1
which crossed the Canal at Mill Street, but
no serious injuries were sustained. The
bridge was laden with from four to five
hundred people of all ages and 6izes, brought
together for the purpose of witnessing a feat
of wire-walking by one James Carr, who
had crossed the Canal from one house top
to another upon a slender wire, and was
about to perform some ground and lofty
tumbling on the Bridge for an afterpiece,
when the Bridge gave way end precipitated
the whole mass into the Canal among the
broken timbers. All were rescued, and but
few received any injury. It caused the
wildest kind of excitement for a f-hort time.
Some of the smaller ones came near drown
ing, and it was only with prompt medical
assistance that they were resuscitated. The
Bridge was newly erected but a short time
ago, and supposed to be very substantial,
but the weight which was upon it proved
to be too heavy.
Disunion. Much has been said of the
disunion proclivities of Mr. Yakcet, and
very occasion possible is taken by Doug
las organs, to misrepresent him, aud hold
the Breckinridge party in the South respon
sible for these misrepresentations. Now
people who live in glass houses should not
throw stones. The record of Herschel V.
Johnson, the Douglas nominee for Yice
President, proves him to have been a no
ted disunionist a few years since. He vio
lently assailed Union men and Union meas
ure, and absolutely earned great reputation
and notority throughout the Southern Con
federacy. The friends of Breckinridge and
Lank challenge their opponents to point to
a single disunion sentiment ever uttered by
either of those gentlemen. Possibly no
two public men throughout this broad coun
try have so clear and patriotic a record, in
this respect, as they have ; and it must be
indeed an unholy business for any set of
men to create a belief to the contrary.
The Lincoln Bull Bdr?ted! An en
thusiastic Black Republican, living at Bath,
in this county, purchased a plump little
Bull, a short time since, which, he announ
ced, he was feeding up for a grand barba-
cue and jollification after Lincoln's election.
His Bullship was put in the best pasture,
and thrived prodigiously until the news
re relied Bath that the Democracy of Penn
sylvania, through their Stale Comuiif.ee,
had agreed upon a Union ticket, when, like
tbe party that was preparing him for a feast,
he bursted and gave up the ghost. His loss
so grieved his friends that a meeting was
held in the vicinity on Saturday last, at
which a Mr. Cressman and a certain young
man from this Borough, acted as chief
mourners. Alas ! poor Black Republican
party, the fate ol the Bull but foreshadows
While Billy Koch's Bull lived, he lived in
And when he died, he died all over.
Badly Cot Up. The Opposition are just
now divided into two intensely hostile
wings the one supporting Lincoln and the
other Bell, for President. All the old Know
Nothings who still believe in the doctrines
of the defunct party, are for Bell. Ex -President
Fillmore is about to 6tump New York
State for Bell. Crittenden, of Kentucky, is
about to do the same in that State. In Phil
adelphia, the Bell men have nominated a
full City Ticket, and have already put forth
candidates in three of the five Districts.
Hon. Edward King, an able man, is the
nominee in the first; H. M. Fuller, in the
second ; and J. B. Robinson in the fourth.
The friends of Bell calculate on polling 100,
000 votes in this State, which will be am
ply sufficient to beat the Rail-splitter.
The notice that we have quoted below,
is from an Opposition paper, and is an hon
est confession that speaks lavorably for our
candidate, Henry D. Foster :
"He ia one of the most amiable, genial,
kind-hearted and unpretending of men ; and
withal an honorable gentleman in the no
blest sense of the word. Although a fine
lawyer, of subtle intellect, and persuasive
speech, he is modest and unambitious to a
fault. He has not an enemy in the world,
and his friends adore him. We know stead
fast Republicans who cherish for "Harry
Foster" a jxrsonal friendship as strong as
any of his Democratic adherents."
The North Branch Democrat, a Douglas
paper, speaks as follows:
"The Republican papers, with Forney's
guerilla Press at the head, are loud in their
condemnation of the compromise proposed
by the Democratic Slate Committee. This
fact should be noticed, and camly dwelt up
on by the true Democracy of the Common
wealth. The masses of the party should
not fail to give their cordial adhesion to the
action of the State Committee in its efforts
to preserve the integrity of the Democratic
party of Pennsylvania."
A heavy thunder storm visited Philadel
phia, on Monday of last week, and owing
to tbe great quantity of water that fell, the
sewers were too small to carry it off, and
in consequence the streets and pavements
were overflowed and cellars were filled, re
sulting in great damage to property. At
several poiuts culverts fell in carrying with
them the railroad tracks, and causing great
alarm to the resident occupants of bouses
in the vicinity.
