: Democratic Nominal ion.
HON. IIENUY D. FOSTER,
Resolved, That the Democratic Electoral
Ticket be headed with the name of Stephen
A. Douglas or John C. Breckinridge, as an
Elector at large, anJ in the event of the suc
cess of said ticket, if the greater number of
votes shall have been cast for Stephen A.
Donglas, then the vote of the Electoral Col
lege of the State shall be cast for Stephen
A. Douglas and Herschel V. Johnson for
President and Yice President, bnt 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 ol
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 vote of the Electoral College shali
be cast for that candidate. If it will not
elect of the Democrats for whom it is cast,
or any of the Democrats who are voted for
in tbe States, then the vote shall be cast for
the candidate who has the majority of the
Totes of the Si ate ; and that the Chairman
of thin 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 hours of five and 6ix o'clock,
in Ea6t Bloomsburg, near the 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
plendid flag bearing the names of Breck
inridge, Lame 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 Hfcas to be made,
tut still the gathering would not have fallen
much short ia 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 well arranged, and the pole
raised quite handily, notwithstanding it
being an uncommon heavy one for its
After the pole was planted three round
cheers were given for the candidates whose
names were inscribed on the flag, when
CoL L. I Tate was called upon, who made
some very appropriate remarks on the po
litical questions of the day. He was after
wards followed bf John G. Freeze, Esq.,
who chanced to come by on his return from
a-TM-tlitial canvassing tour. He rose in his
buggy and dealt out to the Republican par
ty some pretty hard hits, not forgetting to
pay Mr. Cnrtin and his supporters a few
left-handed compliments in relation to the
tariff, and thereby fully establishing the fact
that Mr. Foster is, and always has been, a
tariff man an advocate of a judicious tariff
and Mr. Ccrtih only a trafficking preten-1
der, a maa who has been pitch-forked into
public notoriety, like many others of his
dais of men, by the Know-Nothing organi
zation of 1S54. 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
pabiicaa'worsbippers in this place.
.Montour County ConieBtion.
. Xu9 veiegaies eiecieu iu iec5cui uo
Democratic party in Montour county, met
in Convention on Monday last, at the -Court
House in Danville, and placed in nomina
tion a ticket to be supported by the Demo
cratic party of that county at the ensuing
election. Tbe Convention was called to
order, and proceeded to business, by the
appointing of Job Shearer, President, al
ter which the delegates ot tbe different
"districts presented their credentials and
were admitted to seats. '. , .
On motion the Convention proceeded to
the appointment of Conferees: Wm. Mc
Ninch and Hiram A. Child were appointed
Congressional Conferees; Wm. A. Dean
'and Hiram Antrem, Senatorial ; Adam Ger-
ringer and Robert Davidson, Representative;
to meet similar Conferees, of the several
counties in Conference for the purpose of
forraing our District tickets.
' The following nominations were made by
acclamation : Eor Senator, Dr. L. F. Cald
well; Prothonotary, Geo. D. Butler ; Trea
surer, . Edward Morrison; Commissioner,
John Mc Williams ; Auditor, William Blee.
The nominations were all made with a good
deal of unanimity. Everything seemed
to pass off harmoniously. ,

fashionable plates and illustrations, of inter

Bell and Everett Meeting.
There will be a meeting of the friends of
Ball anil 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. I ngersoll,
James W. Burns, Esq , and many others of
equal ability and celebrity, apjear 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'7 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 Slates;
but they have not the slightest chance of
carrying States sufficient to interfere with
the election of John C. Breckinridge to the
next Presidency of these Un'ied Slates.
A meeting will be held in Catlawissa on
Thursday, the day following the meeting in
. . Tnc 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 such oth
er Saloons, Sec, as will beyond doubt ac
cornmadate 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 6ite for this year's Fair. The histor
ic interest that cluster round the very snot
on which the exhibiiioa 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 the Fair Grounds
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 it compro
mise, saj8 :
''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 duly to perform, and
the State of Pennsylvania will carry Henrt
D. Foster triumphantly into the Guberna
torial Chair, and when that shall have been
done, it will end the possibility of electing
Abrara 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 quarrels let them now
be considered as ended forever. We have
another chance at the fanaticisms of the
day another battle is to be fought on tbe
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 the march of the legions of
error, and 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 blazins with victory, assert
and maintain our position at the helm of
Abolitionism. We never knew an aboli
tionist that was not a tyrant in nis own
family, or anions those over whom he had
control. We never knew an abolitionist,
that did not strain bis mental vision, to du
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
brelherc around them are "guilty of a skin,
colored as their own," and therefore they
can not do anything for them. But if a
"nigger" 6hould come along to lecture on
the wrongs of his race, they would flock to
bis standard and sasuin and encourage him
by every effort
... : !
The Pittsburg Post, the leading Douglas
organ in Western Pennsylvania, endorses
the action of the Committee, in speaking
of the plan of Union adopted, says :
"We shall sustain it, because it will give
a united vote in Pennsjlvania 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 Bus
tain it, because we believe it will bring out
the largest Democratic vote vhich 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 which he has in tbe hearts of the
people of the Keystone State. . We have no
doubt that the "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 nana lor tne common
Democratic success in the
paiga." , ,
The annual Agricultural Fair of Clinton
county, will be held at Lock Haven, on the
Accident. at Danville. - ... .
, We learn from various sources, that an
accident happened at Danville, on Wednes-.
day last, by the breaking down of a Bridge,'
which crossed he Canal at Mill Strpet, but
no serious injuries were sustained. The
bridge was laden with from four to five
hundred people of all ages and sizes, 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 and precipitated
the whole mass into the Canal among the
broken timbers. All were rescued, and but
few received any iniury. It caused the
wildest kind of excitement for a fchort 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. Yancey, and
every occasion possible is taken by Doca
las organs, to misrepresent him, and hold
the Breckinridge party in the South respon
sible for there 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 disuniouist a few years 6ince. 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
Lans 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
ibis 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 Burted! 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
rerched Bath that the Democracy of Penn
sylvania, through their State Committee,
had agreed upon a Union ticket, when, like
the 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 of the Bull but foreshadows
While Billy Koch's Bull lived, he lived in
And when he died, he died all over.
Badly Cut Up. The Opposition are just
now divided into two intensely nosme
..a.... 1 . I
wings the one supporting Lincoln and the
other Ball, for President. All the old Know
Nothings who still believe in the doctrines
of the defunct party, are for Bell. Ex-Preai
dent Fillmore is about to stump New York
State for Bell. Crittenden, of Kentucky, is
about to do the same in that State. In Phil
adelDhia. the Bell men have nominated a
full Citv 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-spliiter.
The hotice that we have quoted below
is from an Opposition paper, and is an hon
est confession that speaks favorably for our
candidate. Henry D. Foster:
'He is 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 personal friendship as stron
any of his Democratic adherents."
The North Branch Democrat, a Douglas
paper, speaks as follows:
"Tbe Republican papers, with Forney's
guerilla Press at the head, are loud in their
condemnation of the compromise proposed
by the Democratic State Committee. This
fact should be noticed, and caaaly dwelt up
on by the true Democracy of the Common
wealth. The masses of the party should
not fail to give tneir 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 the 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 points culverts fell in carrying with
them the railroad tracks, and causing great
alarm to the resident occupants of houses
in the vicinity.
