that has stood up in this country.
The Democratic Party.
Founded upon the eternal principles o!
truth and jussice, with the Constitution for
its guide, the prosperity and perpetuity of
the Union for its iim, the Democratic party
basso far retained its iniegrity unspotted
and its power unbroken. It is now, as it
was in the days of old, the friend of civil
and religious freedom, the friend of the
people, the advocate of the great and simple
troths which the Constitution embodies.
Prejudiced against no section of our com
mon country pledged to the support of no
measure that does not insure equal and
.exact iustice to all enlisted, not in the
cause of men but in defence of principles
it will enter the coming contest with the
same consciousness of the final triumph of
its cause which cheered it in former strangles
the consciousness that' it is the cause
-of truth and" justice. 'With the Con
stitution it arose, with the Constitution it
lias livedand together with the Constitution
it icill die. ine one cannoi survive ine
other. Without the Constitution the Demo
cratic party would be broken np ; without
the Democratic party, the Constitution
would become in a day the foot-ball of
' The Ohio Election.
From the official returns of the Ohio
election, it appears that the Republican
majority was 8,794. The Republicans have
Jost fjro Conyessmen. As fourteen thou
sand negroes were permitted to vote under
a decision of the infamous Judge Brinkeroff,
it will be een that the majority against the
Republicans was nearly six thousand. The
equality of the races is of some use to the
party there, but in New York the Covtier and
Enquirer pretends that the Chicago platform
recognizes no such 'principle. How do the
Republicans of this State regard a victor)
won by negro allies
The following paragraph is from the
Cleveland Plaindeater :
"Full blooded negroes voted in several of
the wards yesterday. At the Second ward

"Sheep's meal's too good for negroes,"
is an absurdity. Here on the Western re

them. They sit at the first table, and white
men are forced to lap up the crumbs at the
second. That's the style here. That's

We need scarcely tell our reader, at this
late day, that the result of the election in
this State is unfavorable to the Democratic
party. We frankly admit that we were
never more sanguine of success and never
more sadly disappointed. We thought we
had made all clue "allowance for the unscru
pulou activity of our opponent? their per
feet organization the amount of money to
be used their numerical strength, all these
things we had noted , but 'it seems we
omitted in our calculations an important
item the one that wrought our defeat
the amount of t reachery tn our own rank. We
were not prepared for 'this -stab in the back.
It is evident we have been slaughtered by
the friends in ear own household. The
straight-out Douglas faction under the lead
of the arch traitor Forney has again played
us fatee and for the third time given the
State -into the hands of the Republicans.
To the machinations of this faction we are
indebted for our defeat. Their disorganiz
ing efforts have once more stricken down
the Democratic party and they are now re
joicing with the Republicans over their
To say that we do not feel chagrined at
the result would be sheer affectation, but to
set down and lament over it would bo folly.
Let us close up our broken columns and go
to work to retrieve what we have lost- We

lies and we may now, in some degree

of the country stand op manfully and battle

lowship with traitorsor those who are coun
seled or controlled by them . It is not yet
too late to redeem the State if we purify onr
ranks of the traitors and disorganizes who
still retain a foolhoM in the party for the
purpose of doing mischief. Get rid of them
and the Democratic party will again roll
up one of her old fashioned majorities and
come out of the contest triumphant. Let
us cnt off from the party every disorganizer
who will not support the. regular Electoral
Ticket, formed by the Democratic State
Convention, and no other. VTe will then
cease quarreling among ourselves and be.
enabled to keep the organization of the
party pnre and undivided.
Democrats, be not disheartened pick
yonr flints and fire again ve are beaten
but not conquered.
TO WORK, DEMOCRATS.
All the Democracy have to do is to go to
work for the Electoral Ticket as formed at
Reading, and the State is certain to be kept
from out the hands of our enemies. It is
less than a fortnight till the Presidential
battle will be fought, and it is lime for us to
be preparing for the contest. Yet, in this
time, much work can be accomplished, and
if proper exertions are made and proper
vigilence exercised to et out our voters to
the polls, and to prevent the casting of frau
dulent votes by the adversary, we ca"h sue
ceed in giving a far more encouraging com
plexion to the affairs than they received
from the Gubernatorial contest. All Clubs
should meet regularly, and Committees,
those powerful instrumentalities, without
which but little can be accomplished, sho'ld
not lose a moment.
Democracy is to-day the same as ever ;
the defender of the people, the foe of sedi
tion, the guardian of the Union ; it has giv
en us all the prosperity we have as a peo
ple, all the honor we have in the eyes of
the world, all the wealth we now possess,
and all we can ever expect ; all this has De
mocracy done for us, al! this, it only, is able
to do in the future ; then "what is it V but
onr hermitage in time of peace, our shield
in time of war, our refuge in the hour of
danger, "our very present help in time of
trouble' Democrats and friends of every
faith and creed, think over these things.
The Ktit Congress.
Onr readers will remember how much
difficulty the Republicans had in electing a
Speaker in the present House of Repre
sentatives. After a long time they suc
ceeded In electing Gov. Pennington, of New
Jersey, one of the most moderate of their
stripe, by a bare majority. Well, according
to the accounts which have reached us of
the recent elections, two Democratic mem
bers have been gained in Pennsylvania and
three in Ohio ; total five, which, being de
ducted from the Republican side and added
to the Democratic, will make a difference of
ten votes against the Republicans, as com
pared with the present Congress. The
Democrats have lost no member as yet.
They might have gained three more in
Pennsylvania, viz : in the 2d, 3d and 4th
Congressional districts, if only the Demo
crats and Bell men had co-operated. But
they chose to run separate candidates, and
so were both defeated. The State ot New
York, which has but five members in the
present Congress, including Clark, but not
including Haskin and Reynolds, may easily
gain half a dozen conservative members, if
only the conservative men will unite on
Congressmen, as they have on the electoral
ticket. " Thit thev must not fail to do. We
are glad to see that the National Democratic
Volunteers (Breckinridge) are moving in

The Columbia County Agricultural, Hor
ticultnral and Mechanioal Association, 'held
its Fifth Annual exhibition, at this place,
on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of last
week. The Fair Grounds of the Society
are situated, as nearly everybody in the
conntr knows, close by our town. Had the
managers of the Society searched the county
they could not have selected a more Fairy
like spot, or one better calculated to bring
forward the social qualities of the citizens
of the town and county.
The weather during the three days of
Fair was not very favorable. The first day
was not a pleasant one, especially the fore
noon. The last day, Saturday, it rained
hard all day, thus materially interfering
with the exhibition. The footrace and
horse-trotting came off, on Saturday after
noon, ia spite of all the rain and the bad
condition, ef lite course.
The display was very good in the build
ings. The ladies of the town did not fear
to display their handiwork. There could be
seen evidences that the needle was not the
only thing that was In use, the bread, pre
serves, cakes and- eatables of all kinds,
proved that good house keeping was part
of their education, soaps clothing, flowers
and indeed there was a little of every thing
useful, ornamental and tasteful.
The exhibition of cattle was fine, num
bering, perhaps, over fifty head of Devons,
Jhtrknms, and other grades. There were
several very fine bullocks among the num
ber. The show of sheep and hogs was also
good. There were perhaps as many horses
as cattle, and somo very excellent ones.
The Farm 'implements were displayed to
the best advantage, there being sufficient
from this county to make a good show.
Vegetables and fruit attracted much de
served attention. The fruit was really fine,
no better ever exhibited in this part of the
country. There is quite an improvement
in onr fruit.
On the whole the exhibition was eood,
and reflected much credit upon al! con
cerned with it, particularly upon the mana
gers who are the sonl of the enterprise, and
who have given much of their time and
attention to it.
The good people of Columbia county un
derstand the general principles of Agri
cultural Fairs much better than some of her
neighbors. We have heard it repeatedly
stated that this was the best Fair held this
season within many miles of this place.
We will publish the premiums as award
ed in our next.

Ma.Eniroa: I don't know whether the
above stinger was intended for me or not,
but I shall act as though it was. In the
first place I can lose nothing by the Doctor
failing to notice my communication, be
cause from that gentleman's known politi
cal proclivities I have reason to believe the
notice would not be very complimentary.
But since when has the immaculate Doctor
taken such a holy horror to "anonymous
scribblers V Every issue of his paper
teems with communications of this nature,
in which the most improbable and dis
gusting lies are told ; and 1 have heard it
hinted that the Doctor himself is the author
of most of them. Evidently he has been
touched on some sore spot, for 'tis said that
"if you step on a worm it will squirm,"
and Palemon has not preserved his equa
nimity about my communication.
But to the point. 1 am not so careful of
my incognito but what I can reveal it when
occasion requires. As to the facts contained
in my article, he has not, nor cannot deny
them. There were too many witnesses
present ; and some leading Republicans in
this vicinity have told me in the last few
days, that they would not support the Re
publican nominees for Presidency and Vice
Presidency were they not committed to the
doctrines of negro equality, total abolition of
slavery, etc. I would further advise the
sapient Doctor, that he must be careful and
exclude anonymous lies from his paper be
fore he condemns the truths contained in
other papers. Some of his former sayings
and doings may be on record.
Greenwood, Oct. 22, I860.
Vrc know many good Democrats who
have been deceived into the support of Mr.
Douglas, and who will readily abandon
him when convinced of their error. To onr
Breckinridge friends we would say meet
11 such kindly. Deal with them in a spirit
of friendship reasoa calmly together, and
do not quarrel among yourselves far the
gratification of the Republicans. These
men are your fellow Democrats and most
of them, no doubt your friends at heart.
They have been deceived and now prefer
Douglas but they must soon see that Doug
las has abandoned them abandoned every
thing Democratic and they will abandon
him and vote with you in November. They
do not desire lo be separated from their fel
low Democrats and no onkind measures,
and no harsh language, should be used to
estrange them from their party, or drive
them, where their leaders are striving to
take them, into the ranks of Black Republi
canism. The defeat of the Democracy in
this State should satisfy all that Douglas is
the enemy of their party, and that if they
do not cut loose from him another defeat will
follow in November.
Upwards or twelve Hundred youtg men,
from twenty-eight different States, have

to be in and no Democrat 'need feel asham

recent speech at Ashland, " I am not

stand. I am not ashamed of the reasons by
which they are sustained. J am not ashamed
of the friends that support me. I am not
ashaiieii of the tone, bearing, and character of

well rally to the support of out cause when
they find it sustained by these pillars of the
party all of whom support Breckinridge

These, together with many other promi

Fire and Thief Proof Chests.
For the benefit of our business men we
copy the following from the Williamsport
The manufacture and -sale of fire and
thief proof chests has become a business of
immense magnitude ; and although con
fined chiefly to one leading house in Phila
delphia, safes of Philadelphia manufacture
are now found in every part f the country.
The great amount of security realized at so
trifling a cost makes it a matter 'of imme
diate interest te every prudent business
man. A certain degree of security an be
had by insurance but the best insurance
policy is imperfect where the books and
papers are at the mercy of the devouring
element, and this fact is so generally un
derstood that no man whe makes any pre
tensions to being a careful business man
can afford to be without a pTObf safe, and
hence the great extent of this department
of manufactures. It may be objected that
some 'careful prudent men' will not risk the
purchase of a so called snfe which in the
hour of trial must prove itself to be a cheat
an imposition and fraud upon the pur
chaser and the objection comes with con
siderable force since irresponsible parties
are engaged in the manufacture of them.
Every reputable business attracts imposters
and the manufacture of t-afes is not an ex-
Parties even from other cities have been
attracted to Philadelphia by the well-earned
reputation of Safes manufactured therf,and
to a certain extent have brought the busi
ness into discredit. But the man who
purchases from a house long and well
established, whose Safes have stood .the test
of time, and whose integrity, commands the
confidence of the business community can
run no risk. And it may not be out of place
here to say that Messrs. Evans & Watson
are without a rival in tins uepanmem oi
trade. Their sale room at No. 301, Chest
nut street,, always contain a -large stock,
suited in style and prices, to every demand.
Their Safes have, wherever tested, added to
their well earned reputation, and whatever
may be said of other manufactures, certain
it is that Evans & Wat.-on's Safes are what
they purport to be, and he who seeks
security, will not find it for a less price
