Election, Tuesday, October 9th, 1SC0.
To the Democrats of Colombia County.
Has it occurred to you that we are within
two weeks of the time when the issue
joined between us and our political op-
' puueiuo win uc uctiucu uciuio hid ''
court of the people, from which there is no
appeal? If yon will cast your glance for
ward to the second Tuesday of October,
yoa will perceive that it is not quite two
weeks distant; and if yoa will reflect for'a
moment rjpoc the importance of achieving
a Democratic victory on that day, we are
sure yoa will arrange your business in a
way that will enable yoa to be present at
" the polls.
There is no ose denying that the Demo
cratic party of the country is in great dan
ger of a defeat. Nor ' is there any use to
attempt to disguise the fact. The clashing
ambitions and the bad - passions of some to
. whom we hare unwisely assigned the po
sition of "leaders," have divided our pow
erful organization and rendered oar triumph
in the national struggle doubtful or worse
than doubtful. But this is no reason why
every man who calls himself a Democrat
should not turn oat and vote. "All is not
lost that is in danger and bad as our
look at the present' moment, some happy
tarn of fortune may yet save the country
: the a-xful affliction, of a Republican tri
umph. " But laying aside the Presidential ques
tion and the further it can be put out of
siht iust now the better there is much to
induce all good Democrats to attend the
election on the second 1 uesday ol October.
The ticket to be voted for on that day is a
Tery full one. The offices to be filled are
important Governor, Congress, the Legis
lature, and three of the principal County
offices. Thus, National, State and County
affairs combine to give interest anu irapor-
" lance 10 the October election.
' For the office of Governor we have on
the one side Hexrt D. Foster and oa the
other Akdrew G. Curtin. Whoever knows
both of these men and is candid enough to
admit the troth, ' must confess that any
comparison which might be instituted be
tween them would make to the advantage

Ity 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

. .--The EcpaMicsa Sailing Slanders.-
It would appear by the last few numbers
of the Republican that it has taken the con
tract of nailing danders, whieh it claims are
Started" to damage Col. Curtin." It floun
ders and splurges considerably in attempt-
jnto "aail" a slander on the Star or the.
North in relation to the "Dutch Skull"
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 cause. Now we did think the
editor of '.hat astute sheet was a more care
ful and assidious reader of the Stab than he
really is. lie has asked us repeatedly to re
fract" this "Skull" story, a story which we
hate not assisted in circulating in any man
ner -not a line of it ever appeared in our
paper. Had we not heard-Mr. Curtin at
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 '.hat he (Curtin)
gave the "report'' a very good circulation.
We actually pitied him when he was attempt
ing to explain and contradict the story,' lor
his very countenance and manner in which
he talked did not justify him in what he
said in relation to the matter. We are per
fectly satisfied that the Republican ai.d Cur
tin shall tell the storv as it will have good
effect without our giving it an insertion ' in
It is very unfortunate for the Republican
party that they should have such a man as
Acdrew G. Curtin imposed opon them as
their nominee for Governor a man who is
said to l guilty of so many trifling and des
picable tricks. A man who can come before
the people with no cleaner public record
than Andrew G. Curtin had better remain
in the rank of private life, and not allow
his unwholesome acts to he exposed. 'M
has Deen said that w here there was so much
smoke there must be some fire. Ad we
have came to the conclusion there is iome
fire, for the Republicans appear to be get
ting very much warmed over the reports
which are bein daily circulated abot j
their Know-Nothing candidate for Governor.
We publish an article in another column ol
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 relaion
to the shooting of a dog, one ofCurtin's
brave and noble acts.- If these things all
tend to qualify Mr. Curtin for the Guberna
torial chair the people should be informed.
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 McRetnolus to the
Chair, and making ICessrs. David Lvenberg
and. B Knittle, Vice President-, M. E
Woodward and the Editor of this paper,
. On motion of E.H. Litttle, Eqf Stephen
H. Miller and Emanuel Lazarus were ap
pointed a Committee to wait upon the speak
ers and invite them to address the meet
ing. In due season they made their appear
ance, accompanied, by the speakers. Hon.
William . M. Piatt, who was a promi
nent candidate before the Congressional
Conference lor a nomination, was first intro
duced to the meeting, and made a Tery
pleasinz and well-timed speech. He fully
endorsed the nomination of David R. Ran-
dell, of Luzerne, for Congress, but' still
thought had he been treated fairly he would
at that present lime, have been the nomi
nee. He for one was willing to abide the
decision of the Conference and do service
for the-nominee. He admonished his
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
much 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 m an i lest .'or 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
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 for
him to practice that deception and cheat
opon them at the coming election. He
(Scranion) will be compelled to enter this
campaign as a Republican upon his own
true isrtce 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 speik, who responded
in a few neat and candid remarks.' He
spoke well of his friend and neighbor,
David R. Rakdall, the regular nominee for
Congress, and hoped that he (Mr. Randall)
would receive the ouited Democratic snp.
port throughout the District which, must in
jure bis election. Mr. Merrifield presented
the nominee as a man every way qualified
for the position which be was named a
lawjer of the first class, and a perfectly
honest man in all bis dealings.
Mr. Merrifield in his remarks did not fail
10 fehow op some of the deception practiced
upon the voters of Luzerne, as. well as the
McReynolds. .If we mistake not, Mr. Mer
rifield stated that Geo. IV. Scrantwi told him,
that he (Scranton)' was as good1 a Democrat
as he (Merrifield) ' was ; that he had vo'ed
for James Buchanan, Bigler and Packer, and
if elected he intended to sustain Buchanan's
Administration. This was the course pur
sued by Mr. Scranton to catch honest Dem
ocratic votes. We need not ask how well
he sustained the administration or His posi
tion. He gained voles upon iheesentation I
that he was a tariff man, and that u elected
he. would drt all in his power to effect a
judicious tariff His whole c
Washington shows how mucn of a friend
he really was to the tariff His first move,
was to throw himself into'tfie arms of al
hord of Black Republicans, after eulogising
the Democracy of his District for their sup
port. And the very first "Vote he cast was
for a Free Trader and an endorser of the
"Impending Crisis." Shame on him. We
cannot see how he can have the hardihood
to come before the people and ask their
votes for re-election.
On motion a vote of thanks was tendered
to the speakers, aad the meeting adjourned.
The Democratic ticket as placed at the head
of oor paper is good one in every way
worthy of the support of every Democrat
There is not one on the ticket but whit is
deserving of the suffrages of the people
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 consider nominations equiva
lent to an election. We have desperate
enemies to contend with, and it stands os
in hand to go to work and see that every
Democratic vote is brought out. We know
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
ballot The enemy are leaving nothing un
done to accomplish their designs ; they are
hard at work to secure the election ol their
jn0W Nothing candidate for Governor, An-
drew G. Curtin. He ia a man not worthy of
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
crats of Columbia arouse from jour slum
bers, and drive away all lukewarmness, if
such there be. We have a work to perform,
and there is nothing like doing it well- This
county is good lor 1000 Democratic majority
for the whole ticket this Fall if the right
kind of spirit is infused into our ranks.
Go to the election every Democrat and
be sure that you attend to this matter right
by voting the whole ticket from top to
The Supreme Court of the Uuited 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 "no 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
j guarantees, which have been provided for
i the protection of private property." And
if Congress itse'J cannot do this if it is beyond
the power conferred oa the Federal Government :
it could not authorize a Territorial Govern'.
ment txercut 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
the power coupled with the duty of guar
ding ar.d protecting the owner in his right "
The above decision was given after the
Cincinnati Convention had been held, but
it is perfectly consistent with the following
plank from the Democratic platform.
"Rejoiced, 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.
On Friday evening last, a Democratic
meeting was held at the public house of
Edward Carey, near Centreville, Columbia
county. On motion the following gentle
men were appointed officers of the meeting:
President Chables II. Hess; Vice Presi
dents Messrs. J. D. Cromer, William Shaf
fer, E.H. Hess and William Silver; Secre
taries Messrs. Aaron Andrews, D A. Hess.
The meeting being called to order by the
President, Wellington H. Ent, Esq., was
introduced to the audience, who delivered
a very able and patriotic speech, which
was listened to with much interest. His
remarks were to the point, and well re
ceived, frequendy being interrupted with
out-bursts of applause. The main issues
of the campaign were plainly and fairly dis
cussed, and the principles of the Democrat
ic party defended in an honorable and truth
After Mr. Ent closed his remarks, E. II.
Little, Esqr ", was called upon, and addressed
the audience at considerable length, in his
osnal familiar and easy style, establishing
clearly that the principles of the Democrat
ic party are correct, and that they are the
same now as they were in the days of
Washington, Jefferson and Jackson. What
he said was every Way calculated to the
purpose, and well fitted lor the occasion.
The speaker on taking his seat was loudly
applauded; and on motion the meeting ad

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 up a new
man, when the name of Mr. Randall was
presented, and upon the 44th ballot he re
ceived a majority of the votes, after which
J: is nomination was made unanimous.
Of the candidates before the Convention
Mr. Wm. M. Piatt, of Wyoming, was the
se while atJ.8tronegt roan ne having four votes on each
of the ballots excepting 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 lo 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 is one of
the best men in the District, and will be an
honor to his constituency if elected. He
will not leli you a lie he will be a candi
date upon no false pretences. We shall
have something further to say on this sub
ject in our next.
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 Krazilian govern
ment; that just previous to the expiration
of the lime (June, 1852j allowod for tho
settlement of these claims, Mr. Hamlin had
a resolution passed extending the time;
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 6um of seven thousand dollars.
Since that tine the Hon. Moses McDon
ald, who was slso then a member ol Con
cress, has writ en a letter testifying to the
truth of Mr. Smart's statement.

On Monday evening list a Democratic
Meeting was held at Jerseytownj over
which Jacob Dkmott presided. Addresses
were delivereJ by E. II- Litte, Eq., and

There was a large attendance of both men

meeting was held was not large enough to

Andrew C. t'nrtin, the Irish. Know-Nothin
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 religious liberties of that people. He is
quite oblivious of his Hibernian origin in
all its features. A more inveterate "black
Ain" faction ist never lived. Shame on
him! He outfit to remember his parent
age. The man who ignores that, would
ignore any pinciple, sacred or profane.
Our readers are aware, that Mr. Curtin is
the Know-Nothing candidate for Governor
of Pennsylvania. We gave a biographical,
political, aid mental sketch oi him a little
time agu 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.
lie is, par excellence, a truckling office hun
ter, and by the same French phrase, every
thing but a man of brilliant parts. His dis
tinctions are Know-Nothingism, political
tergiversation, and contemptible speaking
and writing talents.
The article in 'the Pilot told against this
Irish American with great effect. It start
led himself, startled bis 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 bis
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 the next Governor of the Kktstonc 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 ; Lis perorations are always method
istical invocations to God 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 Llack 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
unsu'.lied political repute to contest the field
with him. In such a case; defeat wonld
be deprived of roost of its disappointment.
His defeat in the present cae but that is
most improbable would dishonor a great
Commonweahh. Religions and political
inanity, if not deceit, would then be upper
most. Andy Curtin, the Know-NotLing,
that is, the rank enemy of his own Irish
race, and of the religion and natural politi
cal claims of lhat 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 Kevslone State.
We have a strong wish that the Irish here
should be the progenitors of an ambitious
illuftrious progeny. We have no more ar
denkdesire than lhat of finding them the
parents of men great in the Church, power
ful in the State, distinguished in business,
and glorious in war. Such, thank the star,
; ihe fact in thousands of instances. The
mention ol the historic names of Carroll, of
Jackson, of Calhoun, of Montgomery, and of
Kelly, of New York, is 6ome proof of this
statement. It is easv lo 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 the appearance of
such 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-
hme himself. The pride of race is a noble
sentiment. There is no true patriotism
without it. He who acts against it acts in-

criminal in many addiional points, and con
sequently he should not be relied on. Ani
mosity to one's race is an essential moral
deformity of the vrorst description that al
ways urges its possessor to the unsciupu-
lous performance of dishonorable acts.
Why is Mr Curtin so shamelessly untrue
to his Catholic Irish fathers as to be a
Know Nothing? The independent voters
of his native Slate will punish him for his
mean derelictions on election day. Pilot.
