" Ma. Welsh's Address. We call attention
to the address of the Hon. Wm II. Welsh,
Chairman of the Democratic State Execu
tive Committee, which will be found in to
day's Star. For a document of importance
it is brief, and exhibits in a lucid style ard
'nervous language, the peculiar position of
the Democratic party at the present time,
the doty which every Democrat owes to
his country in the crisis.and the or.Iy means
in the use of which we shall be able to res
cue oor beloved Commonwealth and the
whole Union from the hands of the "Philis
tines," which are against the rights aud in
terests of our common country.
We heartily commend this address to all
Democrats, and earnestly solicit them to
reflect calmly on the advice contained in it,
and lo use the means which it suggests.
vThb Republicans of Montour county have
made the following nominations : For Com
missioner, Charles Fenstermacher ; Treas
urer, Thomas Jameson ; Auditor, Peter Har
der. They made no nomination far rro
ihonotary, but empowered the Standing
Committee to make - a nomination if they
should think proper. - They instructs con
ferees foi Scbantow for Congress. Also in
structed conferees for Bodmd of Milton, for
Senator. The Representative conferees
were appointed without -instructions. We
r' informed that the Republican party
8tand no chance of electing any of their
ticket inMontoor. The Democrats of Old
Colnmbia'will bold the Opposition at bay
this fall, as they have done heretofore, and
nobly maintained their princi ples and posi
tlon.' Tho Democracy are already anshield
inc their Swords and preparing for the
' Im New York the Breckinridge party has
at last fused with the Douglas, and Bel! and
Everett parties. Though in 1856 that State
gave Fremont 80,000 majority, yet strong
and reafcrnble hope Is entetained that she
may this fall be redeemed from Republican
misrule, against which even Greeley cries.
He says, that "for the next eight weeks the
"Republican party , has harder work to do
than U ever did before." " While the spirits
of the opposition are flagging and beUg
depressed, those of the Democrat s are be
ing eornmensurately elevated, and they
feem resolved to "make op for. their former
jnertia by ( renewed activity no. In this
aection the best of feeling exist, and we
are resolved to throw, in. heavy majorities
for our candidates..- . -,. - .

ing strong and persistent efforts to convince
the people thai Mr. Breckinriege is, first,
the Disunion candidate, and, secondly, the
exponent of the doctrine of Congressional
intervention for the establishment of slavery
in the Territories.
Nothing is more destitute of truth than
both of these propositions, and none know
this better than those who make the charges.
No act or Word of Mr.. Breckinridge, in
dicating disunion sentiments, has been, or
can T?e pointed out.
Indeed, the last-speech he made, which
was delivered in Kentucky, after his elec
tion to the Senate, is full of patriotism, con
servatism and attachment to the Union
The strongest characteristic of that speech,'
is i's calm arid dignified denunciations of
those bad men and fanatics, who aim at the
dismemberment of ths Confederacy. In lan
guage of fervid and majestic eloquence he
deplores the dangers which they have
brought upon the country, and appeals to
all good and true men to unite in a common
effort to frustrate their wicked designs, and
to preserve in their integrity the Constitu
tion and the Union. But in a few days, he
himself, pressed to the wall by his enemies,
relentlessly pursned by base detraction and
malignant aspersion, will make, before the
American people, vindication of himself,
that will forever set at rest this most wanton
and unfounded accusation.
' The second charge! like the first, is with-'
out the shadow of truth.
When and whee did Mr. Breckinridge
ever express the opinion that Congress
should intervene for the establishment of
slavery in the Territories? We defy his
enemies to answer. On the subject of sla
very in the Territories, he holds that doc
trine which is common to all good Demo
crats, North and South the doctrine of non
intervention. ' We know of but one promi
nent politician who advocates intervention
for the establishment of slavery in the Ter
ritories, and that is Senator Brown of Mis
sissippi. So different are Mr Breckinridge's
opinions on this point from Senator Brown's
that it has been thought, the Mississippi
Senator would withhold from him his sup
port. It is only recently, that he has pub
lished a letter, in which he finds fault with
Mr. Breckinridge for not maintaining this
doctrine of intervention. He says that this
constitutes, in his mind, an objection to our
candidate, but that he will sustain him on
account of the general coincidence of opin
ions between them on other subjects.
This charge that our candidate and his
friends hold this doctrine of intervention, is
not only rank injustice, but it is sheer non
tense. Mr. Yancey even does not hold it.
In his late speech he indignantly repudiates
it, and declares that no Democrat entertains
But Mr. Breckinridge holds, and all good
Democrats and all conservative men of all
parties hold, that in ihe Territories, which
are the common property of the nation, all
the citizens of the United Sta'esare protect
ed by the Constitution, in their property
the slaveholder as well as the rest. The
Constitution goes into the Territories and
covers them as 60on as they become Amer
ican Territories. It goes there belore the
squatter, it goes ihere'to govern and protect
him until he is able to govern and protect
himself. The Constitution does not create
or establish any property ; it only protects
the citizen who removes into a Territory in
the'enjoyment of his property.
When the Territory is organized and ac
quires sufficient population to authorize it
to make a Constttulion,and to entitle it to ad
mission into the Union as a sovereign State,
then it can ei'her admit or prohibit slavery.
This is the Democratic doctrine, and far
ther than this the Democratic party has
Gonrt Proceedings. .

.It is short sighted policy in Judge Doug-
and his friends thus to misrepresent Mr
Breckinridge and those who support him.
It may take for a while ; it may draw out
the insensate hurrah, and deceive for a brief
hour the ignorant and unlettered; but in
the end, it will react powerfully against
those who pursue it The trnth cannot be
repressed. It will come out, and it will
cover with shame and confusion the authors
of this misrepresentation and injustice.

Saz.b or the Montocr Iron Works.
Tfce Montour Iron Worksjocated in Mon
.our and Lycoming counties, were sold at
the Merchants' Exchange last week, by or
der of the trustees of a mortgage of 28ih of
September, 1835. The property consists of
rolling mills, furnaces, dwelling houses, of
fices,, lands, mineral, lands, ore, mining
rights, &. The works ol the company are
erected in the borough of Danvi.le. The
lands old comprised two thousand acres,
and the dwelling booses numbered upwards
of three hundred, Mr. Joseph A. Clay, at
torney for the parties interested in the works
bid 8100,000. There was no other bid,
and the property was accordingly "knock
ed down" to hira. The terras of sale were
S20.000 cash, and the" Dalan'ce on the exe-
Verilt this is ax age of wonder, excite
ment. and nroi'ess. Let us illustrate. On
" J K C7
Friday evening lat, while the majority of
the good citizens of the peaceful town of
Bloomsborg were cosily locked in the pleas
ing embraces ot Morpheus (we believe that
is his" name,) a voice cried through the
air "Fellow citizens of Bloomsburg " Im
mediately half-formed visions vanished
thoughts of a Harper's Ferry, or Texas in
surrection succeedt?d,and donning our wear
ing apparel in "hot haste," we hurried to
the scene of action. On reaching the tront
of the Court House, we found assembled a
respectable number cf our fellow-citizens,
who were intently listening to "the accents
of that unknown tongue, which, like a sil
ver clarion rung," a T. Bell. Evidently it
was an extemporaneous political gathering,
and as cheer after cheer went up for Bell
and Everett, the crowd increased suid also
the curiosity to know the speaker who dared
"make night hideous" by thus proclaiming
his political faith. But, scarcely had hi
voice died away upon the listning air, when
another speaker took his place and boldly
proclaimed himself a Breckinridge man, in
favor of the "Constitution and the equality
of the States " He spoke briefly of the
tariff and various other issaes before the
American people, and the frequent demon
strations of applause proved that the sym
pathies the crowd were with him. But no
sooner was his place vacated than it was
filled by a fine looking man with a voice
like a Stentor.who announced his allegiance
to the Republican party, and proceeded to
arirue why its candidates should be adopted.
Candor compels us to acknowledge that it
was a masterly effort, and Lincoln and Ham
lin lost nothing in his hands. Still another
speaker was announced, who took up the
guantlet for the "Little Giant." He spoke
at some length, and if he did not succeed
in convincing his hearers that Douglas was
right, he showed that he was in earnest, and
nobly would contend even though sin-jle-banded
against all opposition. The speak
er's remarks elicited frequent applause, es
pecially trom the clique at the base of the
steps. But the end was not yet. Though
Gen. Houston has withdrawn himself from
the Presidential contest, yet one faithful ad
herent, it seems, denys his right to resign,
and zealously endeavored to win the suffra
ges of those present, by appeals to their
patriotism and 6ense of duty. The speaker
at the close of- his remarks, it was noticed,
was somewhat hoirie. To the surprise and
di"justo! many, an advocate of Gerritt
Smith dared make his appearance. Not
withstanding the threat of "rotten eggs,"
"tar and feathers," etc., the speaker contin
ued his remarks plainly announcing the
"irrepressible conflict" and citing Seward,
Giddings, Greeley and others as brothers-in-
law, all beinat wedded to the daughters of
of Madam Abolitionism. He strongly la
mented John Brown's fate, comparing him
m iVishimrton: etc. He soon found out
. . P j
however, that he was not in New York, and
consequently could raise no enthusiasm
here. At the close of the last speech, the
speakers disappeared as mysteriously as
they came, leaving their entry and exit a
subject for future discussion.

For the Star of the North, j
The Light Street Orator.
Mr. Editor : Indifference to newspaper
scribblers U a characteristic of all great men,
hence, I presume that ibis article wift pass
unnoticed. But since he has become the
bright light of Republicanism in this eection
the exponent of their political faith, and
especially on the subject of the tariff well
may the shades of the bages of Ashlaml and
Marshfield sink to rest, since those bright
luminaries are eclipsed by the newly dis
covered genius of Light Street. ' I wonder
much at this great light being hid so long
under a bushel. But it has passed into an
axiom that "Republics are ungrateful,"
heoce ihe reason of our hero's past obscur
ity. I have heard those wonderful bursts of
eloquence in the Court House, and yet so
strong is tne innuence 01 prejuuitc,
they tailed to convince me of ihe error of
Our "Luminary" pretends to be a strong
tariff man, and claims that the Democracy
of this State and elsewhere, is a free trade
party. Local circumstances control the
opinions of all parties on this subject. Thus
in the South we have a great many tree
trade Democrats and free traJe Whigs. In
the the Eastern and Western States we have
a great many free trade Republicans also.
But it is nevertheless, an indisputable fact,
lhat since ihe formation of our government
six protective tariffs have been passed, and
the record proves that five out of these six
were passed by the Democratic party. The
tariff bill ot 1789 passed without any mate
rial opposition., That of 1816 followed and
was strongly advocated by JohnC, Calhoun.
Next came the tariff act of 1824, agoinst j
which Daniel Webster, the leader of the j
Whig party, voted ; and for which James
Buchanan, now a Democratic President ol
the United States, voted. Next came the
high tariff of 1828 which Henry Clay, ano
ther prominent Whig Inader. severely de
nounced, while Martin Van Buren, Thomas
Benton and other prominent Democrats
voted fox it. This was one of the most pro
tective bills ever passed The next tar;fl
bill passed of a protective nature, was in
1832, for which James K. Polk and George
M Dallas both voted, the latter being U. S.
Senator from Pennsylvania. The tariff of
1842 succeeded, which the Whig party
claimed the merit of passing. This bill,
though protective in its nature, yet was on
justly 60, discriminating n favor of particu
lar sections, and taxing articles, which,
from their nature should be free. Yet the
Democratic party of Pennsylvania even here
maintained its consistency and voted against
the act of 1846 with ihe exception ot David
Wilmot, the Republican candidate for Gov
ernor in this State in 1857, and the same
gentleman who was to address ihe people
of Bloomsborg, in company with Mr. Cur
tin, a few weeks ago. But in 1857 the Re
publican party were ift power, elected N.
P. Banks, a noted fiee trader, as Speaker of
the House. The Committee on Ways and
Means appointed by him was free trade, and
they framed a bill still further lowering the
tariff of 1846, which they successfully en
gineered through Congress. The Morrell
bill of last Congress was framed with the
avowed purpose of having it defeated, in
order to make political capital at the com
ing election. It was not prepared until near
the close of the session, so that even if it
had been acceptable in all its provisions,
the Senate had no time to fully consider it.
.We have thus we believe fully proved
that the Democratic party is, and always
has been, a protective tariff party, especially
that part of it in Pennsylvania.
Our opponents in some places claim to
be the old Whig party, in others the Jeffer
6onian Democracy, in others the American
party, while in others ihe Abolition party.
But no rran in his f-enses will affirm that it
is the Whig party, hence tney can claim no
praise for what the Whigs have done, even
if we should grant that that party favored
protection. The Republican party arose
within the last few years, ami is based
wholly on the idea of slavery. Its open and
avowed object is to exterminate it, and to
this end is the party pledged. But short
as its existence has been, we have demon
strated that they passed the tariff bill of
1857, which their orators, with the excep
linn of the one from Light Street, do not,
and can not deny. ' One firm in New Eng
land gave Thnrlow Weed and other Repub
licans $80,000 to lobby the bill through Con
cress. These are historical facts. David
Wilmot, a noted free trader, leads the party
in Pennsylvania. N. P Banks another
free trader, rules in Massachusetts. Bryant
a popular journalist, and consistent fr-e tra
der, for forty years past, i at :ne nei oi
the Republican elecoral ticket m .New
York, and says distinctly lhat the Chirajo
Platform favors free trade. Lincoln eiil.r
es sid platform, which is thus peculiarly
adapted to two interpretations ; and by tn
er acts in his meagre political life. Ijhs
proved lhat he is no friend to ihe protection
of American industry. Hannibal Hamlin,
the candidate for Vice President is. beyond
contradiction, a free-trader, and voted for
the tariff of 1846.
And now, voters of Columbia county,
with these facts before you, can you sup
port the nominees of the Republican par-y
which is all things to all men V We trust
not. But above all, attend he meeting of
the Republican Club at this place; mark
the inconsistencies and contradictions of the
speakers, and your doubts as to their can
dor will be verified. VEHDAD.
Address of the Democratic State Executive
Committee of Pennsylvania.
To the Democracy cf Pennsylvania : t
In a few weeks you will be called upon
to perform the most important duty that
ever devolved upon you as American citi
zens. At no time in. the .history, ot our
country was yonr action invested with deep

around of the Union ; and upon her decis
ion in October next, will depend in a great
measure, the triumph or defeat of the Re
publican party in ihe November contest
Deeply impreesed with this truth, ihe Dem

briefly to address you. It needs no lengthy
argument at this lime to call you to a sense
of duty. In the crisis now impending, ev

the chasm yawned that threatened to engulf
the powerful organization which, in times

with the loes ol the Constitution aud the
contemners of the equality of the States,
the great heart of the American people
was filled with dread, and the Democratic
masses were overwhelmed with consterna
tion. The Republican party viewed our
internecine warfare wi'h ill-disguised de
hjiht. Its leaders, ' confident of success,

In this emergency, ihe State Committee,
sctuaied'by feelings of patriotism, and
prompted only by a wish to secure the tri
umph of the "good old cause " endeavored
to auree upon a course of action lhat would
enable the D-mocrntic masses to unite upon

to make a comm"n effort against the candi

Mr. ' Curnming, of Belletonte bought a t ck
et in' a lottery, held by J. M. Lytle, at
Mountain House, Blair county, by which
she drew a carraige valued at $3000. The
carriage was given in charge of Mr. Cum

ihe Mrl in sett ement of her wages with the
ticket, and locked up the carriage. Acting
under the advice of A DREW G. CUUTIN,
Cnmroings refused to deliver the vehicle
over to the girl. She brought suit to recov

and a Know Nothing jury, and notwith

the defendant, she hit her dollar and her car

defendant to pay the cost. This is literally
true, and can be substantiated from the rec

shows the honor and manliness of Andrew

City dailies we learn lhat General Foster,
our candidate for Governor, has at last con
cluded to take the stumn. The Chairmen
of the Democratic and . Republican Stale
Central Committees are araauging a series
of meetings for him and Col. Curtin, at
which both are to address the people upon
the issues involved in the campaign. We
are not yet informed of the time and place
of-these meetings. ,
The people in New Haven are seeing
stars in the day time. That is not a new
discovery. Bat, says the Providence jour
between Republicanism and Democracy ;
and, as such, it is committed with confi
dence to ihe calm good sense of the people
Il cannot be denied that the union of the
Democratic party will result in a brilliant
triumph in October. On lhat initial battle
all our energies must now be concentrated.
We have a leader worthy of our cause.
With an enthusiasm never before equalled
in any political assemblage, Henry D.Fos
ter, of Westmoreland, was selected as our
standard bearer in that important contest.
He did not seek the nomination. He re
peatedly declined being a candidate for the
office. When struggling partisans met at
Reading to advance ihe interests of their
peculiar favorites, he remained in the quiet
retirement of his own home, with no tho'l
of personal advancement, and anxious on!y
for the success of Democratic principles.
The presentation of his name to the Con
vention was met by a prompt withdrawal,
at his urgent solicitation. But when the
voice of the people unanimously praclaira
ed Kim the leader of the party in his native
Commonwealth, he did not refuse to obey
the call to duty, yet seeking no preferment
hv anv word or act of his own. The record
of his life is the record of a Pennsylvania
patriot. In every position he has occupied,
he has obeyed the instincts of his nature in
laboring for the gooJ of those who gave
him place and power. The purity ot his
private character; the ability which marks
eery act of his public life ; ihe devotion
he has shown to the industrial interests of
Pennsylvania in the halls of our National
Congress arid Sta'e Legislature ; the zeal he
has ever brought to bear upon all questions
involving the true policy of our Stale Gov
ernment ; and the conservatism which has
!way characterized his views upon Nation
ul issues-, make him eminently worthy of
ihf support and confidence of all who have
ai heari the at.idiug welfare of Pennsylva
nia Ireeme i In asking you to do battle for
i siu h a champion, the Slate Committee feels
that it i on y calling upon you to guard and
protect your vital interests. You will not
be tiii appealed to in vain. The people
ara wiih tne Democratic party, and will tol-i
low its fla, because it is the party of the
Union and the Coniitntion. It has made
this country yreat and powerful. It has
never ce t-ed to Miruggie for the elevation of
the masr-es, a-ul for the establishment of the
true policy of government Its power is
exhibited in the rapid growth of our exten
ded boundaries, in ihe general prosperity
j,.,i t.j.,..! ..s ol our people, and in the
Iree and l.ueral character lhat has been giv
en to our political institutions. In invoking
thorough and complete organization thro'
otii.he S ate ia behalf of this party, a sim
ple duty is required of the Democratic
mase-s. The State Committee is not active
ly engaged in endeavoring to secure thii
sure and certain precursor of victory. We
must be united in the contest, or our cause
is utterly hopeless. Parties, an well as na
tions, perish belore the evil genius of dis
sension, AlthtUgh clouds and darkness
may surround us, the union of the Democ
racy will avert every calamity by which we
may be threatened, and will carry our ban
ner in triumph through ihe storms of battle.

ledrx-tnv 1od of pood I rial, it does not speak well for the morals of
learned bv any one, without a leacner,
with the aid of this book. By A. H. Mon-
tkith, Esq ,
The llobertsonian Method of Learning
the French, German, Spanish, Latin and
Italian Languages without the aid of a teach
er, has lor the ia-t ten years, been success
fully tested throushout the whole European
Continent ; and is, wi hou: a single excep
tion, used in leaching the modern languages
in all the educational institutions ot Eng
land, France and Germany. In London.
Mr. A II . Monteith, ihe uost celebrated
leacher of Languages in the world, has ar
ranged and perlected this system ; and his
works on the study of French, German,
Spanish, Latin and kalian without a Master,
contained in this volume, immediately ob
tained a sudden and extraordinary popular
ity. Any person unacquainted with these
language, can with the aid ot this volume
be enabled to read, write, and speak the
language of ei'her, without the ant ot a
teacher, or any oral instruction whatever,
provided they pay strict ailer.tion to the
ui.-tructions laid down in the work, and that
rmih'iiirr shall be Dassed over without a
thorough investigation of the subject it in
volves : by doing which they will find them
selves to be able to speak, read, or write
either language, at their will and pleasure.
I he whole contained in twenty-seven easy
Lessons. The French is in six easy lessons
SDanish is in four. German is in six. Latin
is ii six, and Italian is in five easy Lessons,
or twenty-seven m all lnis worh. is invai
liable tit any person wishing to learn either
or alt of these lancruases. and is worth to
anv one. one hundred times its cost. Thi
wo'rk has already run through several large
editions in England ; lor no person has ever
bought a copy of it, without recommeoing
it to their friends. Everybody should pos
sess themseives of a copy of it at once.
Complete in one large duodecimo volume,
bound in cloih. Price One Dollar and Twenty-Five
Cents a copy only.
Re d wh it Dr. Shelton Mackenzie, the Literary
Elitor oj the Philadelphia Daily Pres,
soys of it editorially in that paper :
''There is no royal road 10 learning; but
where the learner heavily dragsed on his
lumbering way in former times, he now has
a new track and wonderful engines, which
facilitate his progress. Study this book
carefully, and you can acquire near half a
dozen language in the time usually wasted
upon Ihe imperfect acquisition of one. Sad
ly, as well as wisely, did Milton write, 'We
do amiss to spend seven or eight years
merely in scraping toaether as much Latin
and Greek as m'uht be learned easily and
deiighffully in one year.' John Lock, Syd
ney Smith, and other great authors, bear
"Monteith's Book, here before r.s, pro
fesses to make any one of reasonable capac
ity and suitable industry, read, wri;e, and
speak five languages (lour of them living
tongues) without any assistance from a tea
cher. Elihu iiurriit's case shows how in
tellect and the desire to learn, can make a
man master the principal dead and living
languages. This book, and a real desire to
learn the language, will enable a student lo
teach himself French in on incredibly short
time : and so with the other languages.
Tne Messrs. Peterson confer a great benefit
on society by publishing this book."
