-Resolved, That the convictions tl the Dem
ocratic party of Pennsylvania remain un
shaken in the wisdom and justice of ade
quate protection of iron, coal, wool, and of
the great staples of our country, based upon
the necessities of a reasonable revenue sys
tem of the General Government; and ap
proving of the views of President Buchanan
upon the subject . of . specific duties, we
earnestly desire our Representatives in Con
gress to procure such modification of the
existing laws as the unwise legislation of
the Republican party in 1857 renders abso
lutely necessary to the prosperity of the
great industrial interests of the State of
Pennsylvania. Posted at the Reading Con
mention, March 2, 1860. '.' '
t ... The Conicntion Oar Konrineej.
- The" object and desian of a political Con
tention "most be to consult as to who are
the most proper and unexceptionable per
sons in a party to be its candidates. Strength ,
fitness and ' consistant political character,
tHiEst be the elements to make up the result,
if the work' of Ihe Convention is to inspire
confidence' and respect; The Convention
f last Monday seems very well to huve
answered is design. ' The delegates rep
resented a very full ana fair expression of
the popular will, for the township elections
were never before to our knowledge so well
attended.' The delegates, as taey came in,
understood very subject, and but very few
TOtes'were changed by persuasion, during
the day. The ticket comes as near pleasing
every reasonable desire as any ticket could
do, when so many various minds are to be
nited. As all cannot think alike,' so of
course all cannot be gratified in every wish,
and each will see the propriety and necess
ity of abiding the decision of the majority.
None of the offices in 'this countj are a
aource of much profit, and it is of more
importance Id the people that they 6houM
be filled by competent men than that any
oms individual should be favored.
Foa Coxgre3s there was no opposition
shown to the conferees who are chosen as
the known friends of Hon. George Scott,
of this county. They are instructed to nse
all fair and honorable means to secure his
nomination, which we sincerely trust they
will r carry out. This nomination wa6 an
act of good policy to the nsages of the party,
as well as of justice to a faithful representa
tive. It is net necessary for us to state that
he has filled several responsible positions
with credit to himself as well as to the pit
ty to which he belongs. He represented
his constituents when holding State office,
say nothing about his official carear 'in the
State Legislature, like a true Democrat,' with
honor to his constituents and himself." We
trust that the other counties in the District
will concede the nomination to Mr.',ScoTT,as
his nomination and election in' the" District
will dVas much honor to the" voters as to
tb.9 office. Columbia county would poll a
larger vote for him than any other man,
spoken ct for this nomination. .,...".
For Senator it will be seen by a glance
at the proceedings of the County Conven
tion, ia another column of the Star, that
M. E. Jackson, Esq., of Berwick, .received
the nomination of this county,, for this re
pousib!e and important office.. We hope
the claims of Columbia will be given, due
consideration and fairly dealt with by the
Conferees, as it must be conceded by all. at
this time, tkat the claims of Columbia are
quaJ, if not stronger, than any other county
in the district. -We present a man in every
way eminently qualified 'for the position,
and if nominated would be an honor to the
efTice instead of the oSca honoring him;
of the Senatorial conference, after which we
shall say something further upon the sub
ie.ct. . .. ..
Assembly Col.. Hiram R. Kline received
the nomination of this county, over his op
ponent,1 JohnC. Freeze, for this highly !m
portant and honorable position. We hope
the other counties composing the Dimic
will cbhciir in his nomination. Accordin;'
to all rules and party usases Columbia
couhty is entitled to one of the Members,
Wyoming the other, as Montour arjd Sulli
van had the Members the last two terms.
The candidate presented by this county for
Representative is known as a man of integ'
rity and ability, who will serve the public
with . intelligence and fidelity. His past
course in public life has been 6nch as to
offer a guaranty of future conduct j and the
knowledge and experience of public busi
ness which he has acquired, qualifies him
the more perfect for efficient public service.
He will make an honest and safe Legislator,
and if nominated, be triumphantly electeJ.
For Protbonotary Mr. Everly was nomi
nate again, because the general speech was
that he had made a good officer, and he
"might as well be elected for life ;;' and it
is no small thing to have this said of a man
for over a quarter of a century. A man who
wears so well in the public judgment, must
have more than common traits ofceharacter,
and be a safe depository of the public trust.
As he has never been defeated before the
people.the presumption gains strong ground
that he never can be.
' Mr. Lee, the nominee for Register and
Recorder, is a gentleman of correct business
habits, who will make, as he has alrtady
proved himself, an attentive and obliging
officer. All men for, and with whom he
has done business, speak well of him, and
many can bear witness to his kind favors.
He is an excellent pensman, and a number
one accountant. . His papers and business
are always found in perfect order, and by
every qualification and circumstance of life,
he deserves the office for which he is nom
inated. He is a Democrat, consistant and
honest, but neverj noisy or violent. . He is
the right man for the place which he is
nominated, and the people of Columbia
county owe him their undivided support.
He has rilled this office for several years
with an eye single to the interests of his
constituents, as we'll as kept a close watch
of his official duties that they were not in
any manner neglected, but faith tally and
carefully attended to.
William Lamos, who is nominated for
Commissioner, is an honest Democratic
farmer of Briarcreek. He has always been
a faithful hard working member of the party
which placed him in nomination, and never
sought office. He has managed his own
business well, and knows the wishes and
feelings of the laboring man and the taxpay
er. , His neighbors all respect him, and he
has just the common sense and practical ex
perience which fits him to make a good
Commissioner. He is not one of your ex
travagant and speculative kind or men, but
a careful and correct business man. In the
nomination of this man the Democracy of
Columbia have made most.an excellent
choice. . He will be handsomely elected.
Mr. Kmttle, the unanimous nominee lor
Auditor, is one oi the most intelligent citi
zens of Franklin township. He will if elec
ted make a good accountant. He is a man
eminently fit for the position which he is
chosen. His election would insure to the
people of this county a good and competent
Cur Candidates for FmlitnU
We tins day place at the head, of our
paper the names of John C. Breckinridge
and Joseph .Lake for President and Vice
President, expressive of our choice. We
have long sir.ee named our preferences for
President, but until the present put np no
man's name. When the Union Ticket was
first proposed, we resolved at once to give
it our hearty support as the only sure means
for the Democracy to succeed in carrying
the election over the common enemy in the
State of Pennsylvania. And, as there were
two candidates claiming to be Democratic
nominees, we thought not to have either
man'i name at the head of the Star, bnt to
battle assiduously lor the election of the
Union Electoral Ticket. But to ave trouble
of explaining nearly each week, either by
editorial or copied articles, which of the
four candidates are our preference, we have
bung out the flag, with the names of John
C. Brrcxinridok and Joseph Lane, our
standard bearers, inscribed thereon.
It would be absurd, under such circum
stances, to speak of either of the candidates
as being really national nominees ; they may
be national in their principles, but certainly
are not in their nominations. Having to
make a choice between thenwwe shall
support that one, as we have ever done,
who most nearly approaches our princi
ples, and promises equality of rights to all
the country. And, however much some
few of our friends may censure the coarse
which, upon a candid view of all the cir
cumstances, we have Jelt compelled by
our convictions of doty to take, we ' trust
that when the excitement shall have subsi
ded, and reason resumed its sway, they
will unite with os in approving it, and say
that we have done right. -

" Resolved, That while the division which
at present exists in the Democratic party, is
sincerely to be regretted, yet having unsha
ken confidence in its principles which prin
ciples we believe to be as eternal as truth ;
and having equal confidence, notwithstand
ing the sectionalism which exists in certain
portions of the Union, in the integrity of
the people;, we are as ready now, as ever
before.to meet the common enemy in what
ever guise it may assume, trusting in the
right, and confident of victory.
Resolved, That the action of the State Com
mittee, at Cresson, in the formation of a
Union Electoral Ticket, in this State, meets
our hearty approval, and it is the obvious
duty of all Democrats to rally to its support.
Resolved, That in Henry D. Foster, we
hail as a candidate for Governor, the man
sought by the people on account of Ins emi
nent talents, inapproachable character and
unswerving integritiy ; and we . pledge to
him, as well as to the Union Electoral tickei,
the undivided support of the Democracy of
Reso'ved, That we are' now, as we ever
have been, in iavor of a tariff for revenue,
and affording reasonable protection to the
industrial interests of the country ; and that
we have no confidence in the Opposition as
a tariff party, inasmuch as in 1857, when in
power, the tariff was reduced.
Resolved, That we pledge to the ticket this
day formed our undivided support. -
k'eioitf,,That the proceedings of this
Convention be published in the Democratic
papers of this county.
On motion the Convention adjourned sine
A Constitutional Objection.
The Dojlesiown Democrat has made a
fresh discovery. After the meeting oi the
State Committee in Philadelphia on the 2d
of July, it made the abounding discovery
that the resolution then adopted had been
altered, Thereby the conspirators spoiled
their own contrivance. The new discovery
is even more alarming, it being nothing
less than that the Cresson compromise is
unconstitutional. This idea was first ad
vance in the resolutions ol the committee
that met at Buehlei's to, purge the electoral
ticket, but the Democrat proceeds to the ex
tremity of quoting the Constituiion. We
will quote a portion of this article for the
purpose of exposing its absurdity :
" In the second paragraph of the jst eec
tion, ot the 2d article, that instrument pro
vide as follows in the matter of an electoral
" 'Each Slate sh&H appoint, in such man
ner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a
number of electors, equnl to the whole
number of Senators and representatives to
which the State may be entitled in Con
gress; but no Senator or representative, or
person holding an office of trust or profit
under the United States, shall be appointed
"This appears as plain as the nose on a
man's face; but the State Committee very
coolly proposes to violate this clear provis
ion of the Constitution bj striking ofl" two
electors, and inserting in their places the
names of two candidates both of whom are
'Senators." This arrangement violates the
Constitution in a double sense, for it leaves
the electoral ticket with less electors than
are required, and places those on it, who
cannot be electors In the case of the elec
tion of the ticket, Douglas or Breckinridge
would stand in the place of an elector, and
of course would be absent when they fho'd
come to meet at Harrisburg. The State
law provides for filling vacancies, but in
this case there would not be such an one as
contemplated, and the Electoral College
vould be unconstitutional, because not lull.
We would like to hear the Democratic jour
nals of the State upon the suhject, as this
is the first time the question has risen. It
strikes us that the Cresson arrangement
would be unconstitutional."
This furnishes additional evidence that
the straight-outs don't or won't comprehend
the Cresson compromise. It does not pro
pose to strike ofl tw5 electors. It proposes
to drop but one elector and allow the name
of Douglas or Breckinridge to ba substitu
ted, according to the preference of the voter.
But it is objected that neither Douglas or
Breckinridge are eligible. . Grant it. Nei
ther of them can possibly be elected. ; The
election officers not being the judges of eli
gibility will be obliged to return the number
of votes cast for Douglas and Breckinridge,
as they did in 1S56 between Fremont and
Fillmore, and after that is done the object
in voting lor them is accomplished by as
certaining their relative strength.
The Mocra7aIl3 into another error in
supposing that there might be a vacancy in
the Electoral College. This is impossible.
As the Democratic vote will be divided be
tween Douglas and Breckinridge neither
can be chosen an elector, and of course the
highest candidate on the Republican ticket
would 6lip in between them. Should the
Union ticket be. elected, the Electoral Col
lege of the State would be composed of
twenty-six Democrats and one Republican,
which is preferable to twenty-seveu Repub
lican and no Democrat. The Doylestowi
Democrat shoold at least make an effort to
understand the meaning of the Cresson reso
lution before demolishing it with the .Con
stitution. A. J. A. Ccmmings is at present deliver

Note. We deem it proper to state that
the Representative Conferees were first in

of Valley township, for Member of the Leg
islature, but these instructions were after
wards 6tricken out by the Convention with
the concurrence of Mr. Snyder, he believ
ing, with many others, that Montour is not
entitled to claim a Representative at this
time, and that instructions might have the
effect to embarrass the action of the Con
ferees. On motion a committee of three were ap
pointed to draft resolutions, when the Presi
dent appointed. Robert Davidson, .of May

Mourer, of Danville, the committee, who
after a short absence returned into the Con

Resolved. That we sincerely regret the nn-
fortunate division which at present exists
in the Democratic party of the Union, and
truly deprecate the conduct of those whose
injudicious zeal for the advancement of
their own candidates, impels them to a
cour.-e of conduct which can only have the
effect to widen the breach and increase the
distraction in the Democratic ranks, and
aid to elect the Republican candidates for
President and Vice President.
Resolved, That we have full and abiding
confidence in the great principles of the
Democratic party and that notwithstanding
differences of opinion may exist in relation
to local questions and sectional issues yet
on the gieal and fundamental principles
which have ever distinguished the Demo
cratic party from the "Opposition" under
the various names which it has assumed,
we are united and firm, and are ready now

shall be concentrated against the Opposi

John K. Shultz,
In Favor of Union.
The Chambersburg Valley Spirit, an able
and spirited advocate of Judge Douglas, and
which strenuonsly opposed the action of
the State Executive Committee of the 2d of '
July, has thought better of the proposed
arrangement and now warmly advocating
the plan adopted by the Commiitee'at their
late meeting at Cresson. In addition to an
elaborate and able article endorsing the
compromise, the last number of that paper
has the following truthful and significant
alosion to the gentleman who assumes Ihe
leadership of the Douglas forces in Penn
sylvania, and to the bogus Committee which
met at Harrisburg on Wednesday last:
"A Snake in the Grass. Forney's Press
is opposing, with all the subtlery for which
it is noted, the union of the entire Demo
cratic party of the State on the Electoral
ticket formed by the Reading Convention.
It is in a degree presumptuous on the part
of Mr. Forney to step back into the Demo
cratic party, uninvited, and attempt to con
trol its action. It is becoming more and
more apparent every day that the Pres is
secretly working for the overthrow of the
Democratic parly in this State. The signs
of the times clearly indicate that the period
. . ... r ,.
is not very remote when Forney will follow
in the footsteps ot his illustrious leader,
Hickman, and land openly and above-board
in the Black Republican ranks. It will be
a lucky day for the Democracy when they
get rid of him and bis treasonable scheming
While he professes to bupport Judge Doug
las he is 6training every sinew to circum
vent him, and hopes the party will be
"gratified' with a "clean victory or a clean
defeat," he U not at all particular which it
may be. In order, however, to make sure
of a "clean defeat" for the party, be pub
lishes a call in the Press for a meeting at
Harrisburg, on the 15th inst., to get up an
electoral ticket in opposition to the regular
ticket formed by the Reading Convention.
If he secures the attendance of a baker's
dozen of Democrats, other than of his own
kidney, at the bogus'meeting, called for the
15th, we will have a poorer opinion of the
Democratic party of Pennsylvania than we
ever expected to entertain.
