than doubtful. But this is no reason why
' every man who calls himself a Democrat
" should not turn out and vote. "All is not
'lost that is in danger;" and bad as our
Presidential prospects must be admitted to
look at the present moment, some happy
turn of fortune may yet save the country
: the a-wful affliction of a Republican tri
umph. ' Bui laying aside the Presidential ques
tion and the further it can be put out of
sight just now the better there is much to
"induce all good Democrats to attend the
""election on the second Tuesday of October.
- The ticket to te voted foi oa that day is a
verv full one. The offices to be 6Ued are
important Governor, Congress, the Legis-
latere, and three of the principal County
' offices. Thus, National, State and County
- affairs combine to give interest and impor
tance Id the October election.
Tor the office of Governor we have on
f the one side Henry D. Foster and'oa the
other Andrew G. Curtis. Whoever knows
bo:h of these men and is candid enough to
admit the truth, must confess that any
comparison which might be instituted be
tween them would make to the advantage
of Foster. He has a reputation for hones
ty which no amount of calumny could taint
' with the least suspicion. His solid talents
" are acknowledged by all. He has learned
- to know the wants and wishes of the
people by long and intimate association
rith thein as a' private citizen and as a
-public mm. ' And although he has never
' hunted public station, he has served long
- enough in the councils of the State and of
i the Nation, to have become perfectly fa
- miliar with the transaction of public affairs.
North in relation to the
story. It speaks of "honorable men never
resorting to dishonorable means,' and when
they do so it only goes to exhibit the weak
ness of their cnse. Now we did think the
editor of that astute t-heet was a more care
ful and assidioos reader of the Star than he
really is. He has asked us repeatedly to ie
tract "Skull" story, a story which we
have not assisted in circulating in any man
ner not a line of it ever appeared in our
paper. Had we not heard Mr. Curtin nt
tempt to deny this ''Dutch Skull" report,
when delivering a speech in this place,
probably we should have published it. But
we came to the conclusion that he (Curtin)
gave the "report" a very good circulation.
VVe actually pitied him when he was attempt
ing to explain and contradict the story,' for
his very countenance and manner in which
he talked did cot justify him in what he
said in relation to the matter. We are per
fectly satisfied that the Republican and Cur
tin shall tell the story as it will have good
effect without our giving it an insertion ' in
the Star. ' - " . ; " ' ' "
It is very unfortunate for the Republican
party that they should have such a man as
Acdrew G. Curtin imposed upon them as
their nominee for Governor a man who is
said o b guilty of so many trifling and des
picable tricks. A man who can come before
the people with no cleaner public record
than Aiidrew G. Curtin had beuer remain

his unwholesome acts to be exposed. It .
has been said that where there was so much
smoke there must be some fire. And we
have came to the conclusion there is ome
fire, for the Republicans appear to be net
ting very much warmed over the reports
which are bein: daily circulated aboat
their Know-Nothing candidate for Governor.
We publish an article in another column of
our paper, which speaks rather plainly of
Curtin, to which we would invite attention,
especially of the editor of the Republican ;
If our columns are not too much crowded
next week we shall re-publish the letter of
Mr. R. Pickard, of Middleburg, in rela ion
to the shooting of a dog, one ofCunin's
brave and noble acts.- If these things all
tend to qualify Mr. Curtin for the Guberna
torial chair the people should be informed.

The Congressional Conference, which
met at thus place on Friday and Saturday
last, nominated David. R. Randall, Esq,
of Providence, Luzerne county, for Congress.
The Convention after having balloted some
40 odd times, saw proper to take op a new
man, when the name ot Mr. Randall was
presented, and upon the 44th ballot he re
ceived a majority of the votes, after which
that he was a tariff man, amr that if elected
hei would do all in his power to effect a

cannot see how he can have the hardihood
to come before the people and ask their
votes for re-election.

to the speakers, aud the meeting adjourned.
is nomination was made unanimous.
At the instance of a few Democrats a
meeting was called at the Court House on
Saturday last, which was attended by quite
a respectable number, considering th short
notice. The meeting was organized by
calling Hon. John McReynolus to the
Chair, and making Messrs. David Lnwenberg

Wiluam M. Piatt, who was a promi

Conference for a nominatioii,was first iniro-
dnced to the meeting, and made a very
pleasins and well-tiaied speech. He fully
endorsed the nomination of David R. Ran

They are all Democrats of the best political
record, pure in character, and upright in all
business transactions. The Democrac) in
this county are in the majority, but not so
largely as to cont-ider nominations equiva

enemies to contend with, and it stands us
in hand to go to work and see that every
Democratic vote is brought out. We know
hat we are right our principles are correct
and the way to carry into effect our prin-
' ciples, is to go to the polls and deposit our

done to accomplish their designs ; they are
hard at work to secure the election of their
Know Nothing candidate for Governor, An

the support of an American people, for so
high a position, and on the 9th of October
he will find how little regard the people of
the Old Keystone have for such a political
trickster as Mr Curtin. Should we not miss
our mark, he will be repudiated at the ballot
box by not less than 30,000 votes. Demo

such there be. We have a work to perform,
and there is nothing like doing it well. This

Of the candidates before the Convention
Mr. Wm. M. Piatt, of Wyoming, was the
trongest man, he having four votes on each
of the ballots exrepting six ; but neither of
the other candidates willing to concede their
claims to him, his nomination could not be
brought about. The nomination of Mr.
Randall is thought to; be a judicious one,
and will no doubt meet with a unanimous
support from the Democracy of the District.
He is a stanch Democrat, and a good, prac
tical lawyer by profession. He U one of
the best men in the District, aud will be an
honor to his constituency if elected, lie

Andrew C. Curtin, the Irish. Know-lVothLng,
IX rilXVSVI.VA.M 1.
The above heading is a shameful slur on
the race of Ireland. But Andy Curtin, the
son of gentlemanly, Catholic Rowland, from
Dysart, in the county of Clare, has no ele
vated respect for the good name and civil
and religions liberties of (hat people. He is
quite oblivious of his Hibernian origin in
all its features. A more inveterate "black
Aiseni" factionist never lived. Shame on
him I He ousht to remember his parent
age. The man who ignores that, would
Hannibal Hamlin of Maine.
We regret that we are compelled to ar
raign the Black Republican candidate for
Vice President with having used his official
station as a Senator of the United Slates for
his private and pecuniary aggrandizement.
The charge was made at Brighton, Maine,
on the 20ih of July last, by the Hon. E. K.
Smart, an ex-member of Congress. Mr
Smart said that some years ago acommis
ion was appointed to adjust the claims of
our citizens against the Brazilian govern
inent; that just previous to the expiration
of the lime (June, 1852 j allowod lor the
settlement of these claims, Mr. Hamlin had
a resolution passed extending the lime;
that he came to him and urged him to vote
for it; that the resolution passed, the time
was extended; and that for his services Mr.
Hamlin received from the parties interested
the sum of seven thousand collars.
Since that tine the Hon. Moses McDon
ald, who was eIso then a member ol Con
cress, has writ en a letter testifying to the
truth of Mr. Smart's statement.
; . The inlnor of the Irrepressible Conflict.
We believe Mr. Lincoln claims to be the
. author of the' "irrepressible 'conflict' idea.
At least," we find him giving it utterance in
v hU speech at Springfield, ' Illinois, on the
1 - 17th of Jane, 185S.- - We quote from the vol
ume of Debates between Lincoln and Doug-
l. Mr - Lincoln said :
"We are now far into the fifth year since
' a policy was initiated with the avowed ob
. ject and confident promise of putting an
end to slavery agitation. Under tb opera
lion of that p'olicy, lLat ' agitation has not
' only not ceased, , but has constantly aug---xneuted.
In my opinion.' it wilt hot cease
tntil a crisis shall have been reached and
passed." 'A" house divided asainst itsell
- cannot stand." 1 believe this Government
cannot endure permanently half 6lave and
, half free. I do not expect the Union to be
- dissolved I do not expect the boose to fall;
. ' but I do expect it will cease to be divided
. It will become all one thing or all the other.
Either the opponents ot slavery will arrest
the tunher spread of it, and place ir where
- the public mind shall rest in the belief that
- ; it is in the course ol ultimate extinction, ot
its advocates will push it forward till it shall
become alike lawful in all the States, old as
"well as new, Nona as well a South.'
How little this man understands the true
theory of our Government the theory that
V ' established State governments to make laws
.1 lo meet the exigencies, condition, climate,
' soil, &c, of each State, and :o regulate their
'- own affairs in their own way. There is no
division of the house against itself .in the
Cnnsiimuon l it exists only in the efforts of
euch fanatics as Abraham Lincoln lo create
strife, sdr up discords, net brother against
broiher, and faiher against son, in our great

plank from the Democratic platform
"Reiolced, That we recognize the right of
the people of all the Territories, including
Kansas and Nebraska, acting through the
legally and fairly expressed will of a major
ity of actual residents, and whenever the
number of their inhabitants justifies it, to
form a constitutiou with or without domes
tic slavery, and be admitted into the Union
upon terms of perfect equality with the oth
er States." Cincinnati Platform.
The Supreme Court of the United States,
in the Dred Scott decision, says:
"The right of property in a slave is dis
tinctly and expressly affirmed int he Consti
tution and that "oo tribunal acting under
the the authority of the United States,
whether it be legislative, executive or judi
cial, has a right to draw a distinction or to
deny to it the benefit of the provisions and
guarantees, which have been provided for
the protection of private property." And
if Congress iUeJ cannot do this if it is beyond
the power conferred on the Federal Government :
it could not authorize a Territorial Govern
ment tzercut to them. It could confer no power
on any local Government, established by
its authority, to violate the principles of the
Constitution." "The only power conferred

Democratic friends to stick to the ticket and ' ...
make strong exertions to secure the elec
tion of our noble candidate for Governor,
Henry D. Foster, after which the Democ
racy would in some way manage to carry
the State for President, by which plan he
thought it best not to inform the Repub
licans at present. The speaker exhibited
miifh earnestness and candor in his re
marks, and was frequently applauded by
the audience in such a manner as to show
that a warm feeling was manilest lor him in
the hearts of the people.
E. B. Chase, Esq., of Wilkesbarre, was
next called for, 'who came forward and
made some pointed remarks which were
well -received: He touched the principal
issues of the present ' campaign, as well as
gave 'a pretty general exposition of the
past catch-trap plans of the Opposition to
gain power, showing clearly that they nev
er accomplished anything without some
1 cheat connected with it. He pictured out Mr.
Scranton as an anti-tariff man to the great
dissatisfaction of all his Republican hearers.
He proved that Scranton was not a sincere
friend of the tariff, only a mere pretender.
Scranton hood-winked many Democrats in
to his support by claiming to be a Demo
crat, having voted for a number of good
Democrats, but it will be , impossible lor
him to practice that deception and cheat
nnnn them at the cominz election. He
(Scranton) will be compelled to enter this
campaign as a Republican upon his own
true issue and as such receive support.
Mr. Chase closed his remarks amidst rap
turous applause. .
On motion of Col. L L. Tate Judge Merri
field was invited to spesk, who responded
in. a few neat and candid remarks He
spoke well of . his friend and neighbor,
David R. Rakdali, the regular nominee for
Congress, aud hoped that he (Mr. Randall)
would receive the uuited Democratic sup
port throughout the District which must in

the nominee as a man every way qualified
for the posi'.iou which he was named a
lawjer of the firel class,- and a perfectly
honest man in all his dealings.
Mr. Merrifield in his remarks did not fail
to bhow up some of the deception practiced
On Friday evening last, a Democratic

President. Wellington H. Ent, Esq., was
introduced to the audience, who delivered
a very able and patriotic speech, which
tutened to with much interest. His
remarks were to the point, and well re

mit.hnrsts of anolause. The main issues
of the campaign were plainly and fairly dis

the audience at considerable length, in his

1 Our readers are aware, that Mr. Curtin is
the Know-Nothing candidate for Governor
of Pennsylvania. We gave a biographical,
political, and mental sketch ot him a little
time ago. The biography, it will be recol
lected from that sketch, is his best part; for,
politically, he is a knave; and intellectual
ly, a very poorly endowed person indeed
He is, par excellence, a truckling office hun
ter, and by the same French phrase, every
ihin? but a man of brilliant parts. His dis-
tinclions are Know-Nothingisra, political
tergiversation, and. contemptible speaking
and writing talents.
The article in 'Ihe Pilot told against this
Irish American with great effcet. It start
led himself, startled his honest Democratic
opponents and startled away from him num
bers of his best friends.. When he read it,
he blushed at the telling exposures of his
discreditable black lantern career.
His chances for election are very meagre.
The adherents of Douglas, Breckinridge
and Bell are arrayed against him. General
Foster, his Democratic rival, is certain to
be ihe next Governor of the Keystone State.
Even were Mr. Curtin's politics unexcep
tionable, he would, not be returned. The
common opinion is, that he is unfit by in
capacity for the gubernatorial chair. The
least eloquent speeches ever delivered in
Pennsylvania campaigning are those with
which he is ever presumptuously ready to
delight a crowd. He has neither voice, nor
words, nor logic. We have never heard so
perfect a platitudinarian. But he is rather
pious ; his perorations are always method-
is'.ical invocations to Gol to be with him,
and assurances that God, certainly, is with
him His public letters show the same bad
taste and inability. He has plenty of phys
ical, but no mental stature.
General Foster is quite a different per
sonage. He is correct in his political prin
ciples, and a very able man in his endow
ments an accomplished lawyer and an ef
fective speaker. It is a long lime since the
Democrats of Pennsylvania had so respect
able a candidate. He cannot but carry the
State by an overwhelming majority. Not a
single black antecedent can be urged
against him. Since his appearance in pub
lic life, he has been a persistent, effective
advocate of true, generous, enlightened,
Democratic rights and privileges. It is to
be lamented that he has not a man with an
unsullied political repute to contest the field
with him. In such a case; defeat would
be deprived of most of its disappointment.
His defeat in the present cae but that is
most improbable would dishonor a great
Common wealh. Religious and political
inanity, if not ueceit, would then be upper
most. Andy Curtin, the Know-Nothing,
that is, the rank enemy of his own Irish
race, and of the religion and natural politi
cal claims of that race, and therefore a most
unconstitutional man, for the Constitution
nobly prohibits objecting to creed any birth
place, should never be the first magistrate
of the Keystone State.
We have a strong wish that the Irish here
should be the progenitors of an ambitious
illustrious progeny. We have no more ar-
denvdesire than that of finding them the
parents of men great in the Church, power
ful in the Stale, distinguished in business,
and glorious in war. Such, thank the star,
is the fact in thousands of instances. The
mention ol ihe historic names of Carroll, of
Jackson, of Calhoun, of Montgomery, and of
Kelly, of New York, is some proof of this
statement. It is easy to supply a long list
of splendid Irish-American names in Amer
ican history. But such a desire at leat the
rising hope consequent on feeling it, is con
siderably humiliated by ihe appearance of
euch men as Andy Curtin from our very
centre, for, though a native of Pennsylva
nia every drop of blood in his veins is as
Irish as that which throbbed in Brian Boroi-
