; .- The Election The Result.
: We are under the impression that an elec
tion was held in Pennsylvania on Tuesday
of last week,-in which we participated,
practically, to the amount of one ballot
and Inst ! It would appear Irom the com
flexion of the'relurns of this election, that
Mr. Curtin, the man "who, it is reported,
shot the peddler's dog, is elected Governor
of the State of Pennsylvania. Well, we
might have expected this, for Palemon
John's astute Republican told us months ago
that this would be the result ! The majori
(j is something in the neighborhood of 30,
000. The circumstances that produced this
startling result, it is impossible to conjec
ture at present the general impression,
however, is, that we did not get votes
enough for our candidate. ' We are defeat
ed, that is too true, but we are not disor
ganized or disheartened the darkest hour
is just before day. Our coal is off, and we
are in for the next heat. In the language
of a friend : "we still live, more and have
our being," although the ''dog is dead "
We are not disposed to farther comment
the election to-day. We are loo busy ma
king preparations for our trip.
Tlie Stale Eicentire Committee.
A meeting of the Democratic State Exec
utive Committee was held in the City of
Reading, on Friday last. The meeting was
called to order by the Chairman, William
H. Welsh, and upon his announcement the
Committee was ready to proceed to busi
ness, when Capt. Alfred Day offered the
following resolution :
Revived, That this Committee do hereby
rescind it action at Philadelphia on the 2d
of July, and at Cresson the 9th of Au
gust last, and that we recommend to the
Democratic party oi Pennsylvania to stand
by the Electoral ticket made by the Demo
cratic State Convention at Reading on the
let of March, 160.
' To which Mr. Isaac Leech offered an
amendment. After the amendment was
read, Mr. Carrigati offered an amendment to
the amendment ; bnl upon a vote being
bad the amendments were lost, and the
question recurring upon the original motion,
it was adopted with scarcely a dissenting
voice. The Committee then aiijoarned.
Rally Against the Encniy.
Some desponding people seem, to think
that, because Col. Curtin is elected Gover
nor of Pennsylvania, the rail-splitter Abe
Lincoln is President of the United States
We assure them that it is no such thing
1 he half barbarous' rail-splitter -is not yet
the successor of Washington. Many things
have to occur before he will be. Among
those things the chief one is his election. It
is all a mistake to suppose that Pennsylva
nia alone can elect a President of the Uni
ted States, and it is also a mistake to sup
pose that because she elected Curtin Gov
ernor, she must necessarily go for Lincoln
in thb Presidential contest. It is more
likely that the Black Republicans spent on
Curtin's election all the funds thai can be
6pared on Pennsylvania, and that consider
ing her safe they will now turn their atten
tion and their money influence to New
York and New Jersey. Many who were
bought up, w ill doubtless feel that in voting
lor Curtin, they discharged their obligation,
and can now atone for that sin, , by voting
against Lincoln. Besides a!T this, there
were influences at work in the Gubernato
rial struggle that will not be at work in the
For our part, we do not mean to give up
the fight, and we appeal to our friends
throughout the State to keep up their or

American Flas Fired by a Wide Awake
While the Republican party all over the
country has exhibited so little respect for
the American flag that they were induced
to blot out in '56 the stars representing the
Southern States, we little conceived that
one among them could be found so ntterly
debased as lo set fire to the American flag I
And yet this act of Vandalism was left for
a Wilkes-Barre Wide Awake to consum
mate ! On Friday evening last, the Demo
crats held a meeting on the Court House
Square which was addressed by Col. J. G
Freeze, of Columbia county, Stanly Wood
ward and E. B. Chase, Eqrs., of Wilkes
Barre. The meeting was well attended,
and all its doings were characterized by
good order. A flag waved from the speak
ers stand, which was allowed to remain
there when the meeting adjourned. The
Wilkes-Barre Wide Awake Club, which
had paraded the streets early in the even
ing, went to Scranton, and returned about
one or two o'clock in the morning. As
these worthies approached the Square, one
of them was seen to walk up to the stand
where the flag was nailed, and deliberately
applying his torch to it, burned it from the
pole. Such an act furnishes its own com
mentary. We will only add the inquiry,
how can any National Union-loving man
vote with a party whose teachings tend to
the 'destruction of our country's flag ? Lu

- ... COMMUNICA TED
Mr. Edftor : It may notl be known to
the literary world in general that there ex
ists in the interior of Columbia county an
institution yclepd "The Greenwood Literary
Society." Snch at least is the case, and
many have been the glorious reunions I
have had in the halls of Greenwood Semi
nary. There are several hundred honorary
members, thouah your humble servant has
not yet received that dignified honor,
notwithstanding his efforts in behalf of the
Society. The active members, male and
female, number two or three hundred.
On last Saturday evening, I was present
as usual, and heard the following question
discussed: Resolved, That Abraham Lin
coin should be elected President of the
United States. Though, strictly speaking,
this is not a literary question, it was
thought expedient to use this method of
bringing in the ''nigger question," which
composes the slock in trade of a majority
of the member. The crowd was"soden-e
that most of the male portion of the
audience were obliged to stand, and even
then a large number had to remain on the
outside, peering in at the windows and
doors. At the least calculation, four hun
dred people were present, a large propor
tion being females and strangers. While
the business preliminary to the discussion
wa being transacted, the utmost decorum
and observance of the rules ot order were
preserved, much to my astonishment. A.
B. White opened the discussion on the part
of the affirmative, followed by Mr Schlicl.er
on the negative. Mr. White was assisteJ
by Messrs. Chandlee Eves, Whitmoyer,
James Masters, Burgess, John and others,
while Mr. Schlicher wa9 assisted only by
two persons, Messrs. Ikeler and Brockway.
The subject of "Tarifl" was ably discus-ed
on both sides, and the utmost courtesy wan
observed by ail the speakers. Then came
the "nigger question," which occupied the
balance of the evening. Mr Ikeler, while
speaking, was frequently interrupted by his
opponents cn the pretense ot. askina ques
tions. Mr Longshore then made some able
and lengthy remarks, but being closely
pressed by Mr. Brockway, asserted "that he
supported Lincoln because of his hostility
to the South and her institutions ; because
Lincoln had and would t-cout at the deci
sions of the Supreme Court when contrary
to his private opinions," and stated furtiier
that he (Longshore) was a Republican and
would support both because they were
pledged to the doctrine of negro equality,
and though a Quaker, yet he would shoulder
his knapsacg and a Sharpes7 rifle, and assist
Lincoln in driving slavery Iron? the land.
These sentiments met with ihe decided ap
proval of the Republicans present. Mr.
Burgess announced before that the Dred
Scott decision was not binding upon him.
Now, Mr. Editor, I advert to these (acts
to prove to you what a portion of the Re
publican party in our own county desire and
believe. Now, candidly, how can Mr
Lincoln, if elected, swear to support the
Constitution of the United States, when he
previously declares that he will not support
the decisions of ihe Supreme Court, a body
created bv the Constitution, and whose
duty it is to interpret it 1 He is expected
also to war against slavery, and not to
assist in carrying out the provisions of the
Fugitive Slave Law, which, a3 a law abiding
citizen alone, he should do. Wherever Re
publicanism is predominant, nero equality
exists, and it is now proclaimed that it is
wanted in Pennsylvania. Dr. Johc, if 1
inii-lake not. stands committed to the same
doctrines of Longshore, Burgeso & Co
But 1 do not much wonder at the.e trea
sonable doctrines, when I consider the
history ot the past; nor d( I wonder at Dr.
John's principles, when I consider that he
was brought up among these same in
dividuals. Sir, 1 am creditably informed
that that very same Society of Friends
which now exists at Millville and vicinity,
were the head and fror.t of Toryism, se
creted arms for the enemy, and oiherways
injured the cause of freedom ! Dr. John
may well be proud of his ancestry ! I
myself, have heard the Declaration of Inde
pendence condemned and Washington
scouted and jeered at. If necessary I cou'd
go on and show that these peaceable friends
have been, and are the fomentnrs of more
discord than any other sect. You now see
why they eupport Lincoln and why Dr John
is ho bitter against the doctrines ol ari
ington, Jefferson and other promiuent
After the close of the discussion, other
matters of business were attended to, and
then the crowd peaceably adjourned.
Grand Hickory Pole Raisins and Foster Dem

On Saturday, the 6ih inst., the inhabitants
of Benton townhip,Columbia conniy, assis
ted by delegations from Cambria, Stillwater,
Bloomsburg, Light Street, Sugarloaf town
ship, and a strong delegation of beauties ol
the fair pex, assembled at the house of Mr.
John J. Stiles, in Benton, to participate in
the raising of a splendid HICKORY POLE,
one hunared and si xteenfeet high.
It reminded us of one of the glorious days ol
yore, when the inhabitants assembled to a
man, to unanimously elect a Democratic
About ll o'clock the people began to
assemble, the Sugarloaf delegation being
the first upon the ground. The Pole being
there ready. Without exception it was the
finest hickory but we ever saw, being
about ninety fed high without crook or limb,
to which was affixed a splice making il in
all one hundred and sixteen feet high.
At 1 o'clock the Stillwater delegation
arrived, accompanied by a band. The
deputation numbering about two hundred,
and having several four horse teams, deco
rated with flags and streamers, presented
quite a grand appearance.
B'' this time five hundred people had
assembled, (2 P. M.) William Cole. Sr.,
assisted by Thomas Psaler, Sr , proceeded
to conduct the raising of the pole, which
was effected by 3 P. M , accompanied by
the unanimous huzzas of the people, and
stirring music from the band. A streamer
bearing the inscription "Bkf.ck, Lane, Fos
ter, and The Union Ticirr !' was a (fixed
to the top of the pole; about ten feet below
was a banner bearing the motto : Deho
cracf and The Union Ticket 1" also a flag
Wits waving about eighty feet above the
earth. The Banner, Streamer and Flag,
was the contribution of William Cole, Sr., a
stanch Democrat, of Benton township.
Shortly alter the pole was raised, the
crowd increasing nearly double the number,
and the Light street String Hand having
arrived, and dicoursed some fine music, a
meeting was o'ganized by the selection of
the following officers :

In your paper of to-day, you say : "We
despise lying and misrepresentation hi pol

the men who voluntarily ensage in this
kind of warfare are too little for our notice."
Your friends 6ay that the above is an al

to my remarks in a political meeting the
evening before the election, when I read
from your paper, where you speak so con

Why.it is easy to despise: and the old
adage says, that "contempt is the fruit of a

your accumulating odium; being con

After all, ii not the above a mere nodse

was that your course, and what you say in

pronouncing a vain panejyric upon your

effrontery to say that you publish a vera
