Dr. Horlacher's Leclnre. .
Pursuant to public notice the citizens of
this place convened in the Court House, on
Monday evening, the 17th inst., lor the pur
pose of listening to' the lecture of the great
mediator between the South and North, Dr.
Jacob Horlachkr, of Union county. The
meeting was organized by the appointment
ol the follow ins officers, viz:
President EPHRAIM H. LITTLE, Esq.
Vice PresidentsJohn Snyder, Ephraim
Secretaries Williamson H. Jacoby, Mich
ael F. Eyerly.
The meeting being organized, Dr. Hor-
lacher was introduced to the audience, and
addressed the meeting over an hoar in
length, in an able and satisfactory manner,
proving clearly and conclusively that the
political opinions he entertained were in
accordance with truth and righteousness,
and that they were bustained both by the
riffhl thinking men and the Bible. Hi lec
ture here was well received ; it was truthfu
as well as arc using.
The Doctor claims to be engaged in set
tling the great slavery que-tion between the
North and South; says he has been thus
engaged tor three years, and has been offer
ed, repeatedly, money from the Opposition
to qnit the work, but he is satisfied that his

Mr. Horiacher traveled through some
parts of the South last spring, and it was
reported that he was tared and feathered,
which statement is without the slightest
foundation. He 6tated that he was leathered
every night while there, and it was jim
what he wanted, but there was no tar abo ut.
Ihey managed to pat him in the custody of
a Sheriff at a certain place, upon suspicion,
but after a careful perusal of his documents,
he was liberated, and allowed to lecture.

This is the first Democratic Mass Meeting
held in Columbia County this season, and
it was a grand outpouring of the ever-faithful
democrats of that section of country, and
gave unmistakeable evidence of their un
wavering adhesion to the great principles
of the National Democracy. It was a tell
ing demonstration in favor of the election
of Breckinridge, Lank and Fostbr. In short,
it was one of the old fashioned Jackson
Before 10 o'clock, a.m., the people be

Republicans, assert, with a degree of impu
dence and assurance, calculated to mislead
those not investigating the matter, that the
Republican party is a.TarifF party.
They assert unblushingly that as the old
Whig party made Jbe'doctrine of protection
a fundamental article in their creed, so the
Republican party are equally the advocates
of the same doctrine. That, they are not
sustained by the fact of the case theywell
know ; and that from the Republican party
as a party, there can be no hope of obtain

The ultra abolitionist attracted by the de

lineal descendant of the old American par

are the leaders of the Republican party.

Timely notice was given by the Republi
cans of this place, through their Press and
otherwise, that the Wide-Awakes, of Dan
ville, designed paying our quiet and peace
able town a visit on Saturday evening lat.
Agreeably to their engagement, they ar
rived at this place about half pas: nine
They came by Canal boat, and landed at
Port Noble Wharf, where they were met
and escorted into town by the Bloomsborg
Band and a few Republicans. Under the
command of a Captain they marched into
the Court House, for the purpose of listen
ing to a speech which was being delivered
by Henry M. Hoyt, of Wilkesbarre. But
the speech or place did not suit their tastes;
they soon came out into tne street, anu
done fo.ne not very creditable parading.after
which, we are reliably informed, they join
ed in a drunken revelry, and kept up their
noisy merriment, making night hideous,
nntil after 12 o'clock, when they decamped
for Danville. Thus it will be understood
ihat they were infringing upon the Sabbath,
and at such a time, when every man who
has any claims to respect, should have been
at his home.
We are not infomed as to the number of
these Wide-Awakes, but we do know that
a good portion of them were unnaturalized
foreigners and minors, not entitled to a vote.
We have heard it remarked that a few
more such exhibitions in this place would
tend greatly-to inoease the Democratic vote
of this township. No person alter becoming
acquainted with their designs and actions
would have any desire to belong to a party
that recognize such an organization. They

the people look upon these Wide-Awake
clubs as a low and degraded organization.
crats, and its arrival was greeted by nine
rounds of hearty cheers. An excellent din
ner was prepared by Mr. Cole, of which
hundreds partook to general satisfaction.
Col. Levi L. Tate, of Bloomsburg, was
called upon the rostrum, and addressed the
meeting in a speech of about one hour.
He spoke of the errors of the opposition,
exposed their past corruption and present
political hypocrisy, in plain and scathing
terms, and proved his points, as he advanc
ed, from the public records. He ably de
fended the principles and measures of the
Democratic party, from the days of Jeffer
son and Jackson, down to the Administra
tion ol James Buchanan, showing clearly
that it is now, as it was then, one and the
same; and closed his remarks by an earnest
appeal to Ihe audience, in support ol the
Union Ticket, and the consequent certain
election of Breckinridge, Lane and Foster.
Mr. Edward B. Snider, of Phelpsville,
Sullivan county, was loudly called lor, and
like a noble young democrat, he took the
stand and bravely responded in a neat and
telling speech. Mr. Snider spoke mainly
in support of the election of Gen. Henry
D. Foster to the Gubernatorial Chair of
Pennsylvania. He then glanced at the as
pect of National politics, and concluded his
brief address amidst rounds of applane.
Mr. Alem B. Tate, editor of the Bo wick
Gazette, was next .called to the speaker's
stand. He had taken some pains lo prepare
for the occasion, by committing his thoughts
to paper, and delivered in a creditable style
and clear voice, a Ienathy and appropriate
democratic address. Mr. Tate's speech com
prehended the main issues of the campaign,
rather judiciously arranged, and was re

No moral question arises in the discus
sion of a Tariff. We in Pennsylvania de
sire a specific duty on Iron. fWhy 1 Be
cause we conceive it to be to our interest to
have such a duty on the same principlo a
State or a section of country, who conceive
it to be against their interest to have such a
duty, will oppose it. It is a question of
Dollars and Cent's and as such a question,
it will be regarded favorably or unfavorably
as it affects the interests of any particular
locality Therefore we find in Pennsylva
nia and New Jersey the masses of.both po
litical parlies are in .favor of an increased
duty on iron, whilst the Western and North
Western States regard such a Tariff as bur
densome to them. The New England Slates
are in opposition lo any increased duties.

.: Godt We have Godey for the coming
month of October. It is impossible for this
number to excel its predecessor ; but it is
equally as good. We recommend all our
lady friends who desire to "show their good
m nharribe for Godey. It is essen-
I (ICIW V w -
tially ladies Magazine containing all the
latest news in the female world. Mrs. Sa
rah J. Hale presides over one portion of the
... v . .a SI
selves by taking the duty off the constko
ents, of which the manufactured article is
composed, and not by imposing a duty on
the article ready for the consumer. If then
such is the case, has Pennsylvania any
hope for protection to her interests ? She
has, but only by the united effort of boh
nolitical parties, who, removing the ques
tion from the arena of prty politics, ask it
as a great local interest, which Pennsylva
nia, as a great conservative Mate, and as a
member of the first importance in the con
federacy is entitled to.
Aain we would reter our readers 10 any
of their acquaintances, who may have been
out of Ihe S'ate. or even in many parts ot
this State during this political campaign.
Aak them if the Tariff question is made an

and absorbing question,! the slavery ques
tion, and that question overrides every oth
er. Pennsylvania Republicans are sneered
at, as being afraid to meet the true issue
It is a notorious fact that in the Chicago
Convention, that the delegates from this State
were sneered nt and mu'-bed ut ief resenting a
party in thii Stale, afraid even to adopt tne
name ot Republican.but loistmg themselves
on the State as the People's party.
Again, the 12th Plank iu the Chicago
Platform was adopted for the mere purpose
of catching votes, reading Tariff or Free
Trade just as Free Trade or Tariff, may
suit the interests of a particular locality.
The Republicans in Pennsylvania claim it
as a Tariff Plank. Whilst Win. C. Bryant,
the head of the Republican electoral ticket
in New York, and the editor of the New
York Evening Pod, a leading Republican
sheet, claims that it reads Free trade, and
predicts disgrace and defeat to ihe Repub'i
can party, if any other, except a free trade
policy is adopted. The truth in relation to
the matter is this: Pennsylvania IvepuDU-
cans wished a Tariff Plank in the Platform,
thinking that by ihat means Pennsylvania
could be carried for their party nominee,
whilst the parly leaders were unwilling to
commit the party to a policy, that would in
jure them in other States." The ingeniously
worked Resolution known as the I2ih Plank
in ihe Platform; was framed, reading both
ways, and their usual policy of being all
thinss. to all men carried out.
A nartv which, for the sake of catching
votes would lend jls sanction as a party to
such glaring deceit and arrant demagogue
ism is unworthy the confidence auJ support
of a thinking people, and deserving of the
severe rebuke which an outraged people
will give them at the polls.
The Japanese Soldier- To the btranger,
in a Japanese city or large town, there is no
sight so common as that of the Japanese
soldier. He may meet them singly or in
squads of I , three, or a dozen. They
are usually well clad much better than the
laboring or merchant class. Their bodies
are clothed with the loose open robes that
alt wear. and their legs are caed in trousers
light fiu'ii'g to the skin. Dark stuffs of cot- t
too alone, or cotton and silk, are generally
used. The feet and ankles are shod with a
sock of dark blue cotton, thick and stout.
The great toe is honored with its pocket
separate Irom the other toes, and if a straw
sandal or wooden pattern is worn beside,
the string that holds it to the foot passes
conveniently between the divided toes. For
this is the universal national mode of pro
tecting and covering the feet. Ihe soldier
is also likely io have a pair of coarse white
cotton gloves, which he carries quite ss olt-
en on his sword handle as on his hands.-
His hat, too, which is a wide flat bamboo
one, hanss at his side oftener than it rests
on his head, unless the sun shines out too
warmly. A pair of swords secured to his
nirdle by a silken cord complete his tout en
semble, unless. he may happen to have on
his back a little budget ol necessaries for
the road or march, tied op in a stout cloth
and swung around his neck. One sword is
a long, heavy, po-verful weapon, that needs
k,,ta m oivp it nrnner force: woe to
the man on whom it shall then fall. I have
seen the effect of one of those blows.where
it cleft asunder stont overcoat, heavy wool
en suit. collar-bon, shoulder-blade, and
several ribs. The other sword i- a short
one for closer work. On the outside of iis
scabbar d. m a small sheath, is a small knife
a few iricM.as long, keen and sharp, that
will perform hara kii i, or the ''happy dis
patch," with nea'ness and ceienty.
