Every district was fully represented in
(he Democratic Convention on Monday, and
although much personal preference existed
in regard to candidates, we'nev-er knew a
political body to be so entirely unanimous
in its reneral DurDOses. r.or one to pass off
so entirely satisfactory 'to all interested.
The candidates -normrrtted are all emi
nently worthy, whether a -citizens, SDemo
crats, or business men, and will receive
the enthusiastic support of -every genuine
Democrat.. The Dominations, though -con

ILPcrma a very worthy gentleman, in
deed; and withal a sound democratic Union
as it is written, and is willing to sustain the
'adminUrraTion in all Constitutional ne a s
ores. Mr. F.' does not enjoy the acquain
tance of the people of Columbia county to
as. liirgfl ari.extent as the balance of the
ticket, but we wilt venture to say this much
for turn, that there is not a more pleasing,
honorable, worthy and honest man upon
the ticket than the person in question, and
if elected, (we will vouch for the assertion)
will make a most capital officer.
Judges It will be sasn by the proceed
ings of the Convention that there were four
candidates for this office. We elect two
this Fall, however. The successful ones
were John McRitnolds, of Hemlock, and
Stephm Baldy, of Cattawissa. 'They were
chosen on the first ballot, over their oppo
nents, Evans and Mack.' Mr. Baldy ie at
present one of our Associate Judges, filling
the vacancy caused by the death of Peter
Kline. The nominee are well qualified
for the position they aspire to, and with fair
dealing will be elected. v
2rwur-iFor this most important office
in the gift of the people of the county, we
place before jou for your support an'amply
qualified and tried person James S. Mc
Ninch, of Cattawissa, predecessor of the
present worthy incumbent. This office i
of great Importance to the tax-payers,there
fore we would esteem it highly important
that they should see to electing a man. who
has proved himself an efficient and able of
ficer. His nomination over a very estima
ble young " man William T. . Shuman
speaks much in his favor. He will be tri
umphantly elected ; '
Commissioner There did not seem to be
much' strife for this office The people
pretty generally conceded the nomination
to' the successful candidate, Chables II
Hess', of MU3in. Mr. H. is an honest, in
telligent and industrious, farmer, possessing
all the qualifications to make a good officer.
Ha knows well how taxes are earned, hence
we bare reason to suppose that he will
prov8 a jaJicious and careful Commissioner.
For Auditor, the Convention nominated
John F. Fowler, of Pine, who, we have no
doubt, will give general satisfaction as an

A Mass Meeting of the Democratrc eiti

Secretaries Lawrance Water?, Alem B.
Tate, Wm. H Jacoby, William Krickbaum.
. Messrs. TATK-amS Hakes were the speak
ers. Col. Tate opened the meeting by an
nouncing that it had been called in pursu
ance of the first article of the Constitution
of the U. S., which guarantees the "right
of the people Ipetceably to assemble," n3
the ninth article of the Constitution of Penn
sylvania, wherein "every citizea may free
ly speak, write or print on any subject, be
ing responsible for' the abuse of that liberty."
The speaker adverted dispassionately . to
the state of the country, its present alarming
rebellious condition and of the leafful crisis
it was approaching. He exhorted the peo
ple 'to exercise patience, -discretion, and
calmness loyalty to the Union and the
Constitution (the course always pursued
by democrats and the democratic party,)
to uphold all its provisions in their true let
ter and spirit, and -never to violate its pro
visions under 'he pretence of maintaining
its efficiency and supremacy. Every dem
ocrat in the North, he fearlessly averred,
was anU ever had 'beeu for the Union.
Thut was the party and the ocly party, who
originally made the country, had over sixty
j ears preserved the Constitution, and with
whom alone was the hope of the Union
Our Father's unbroken heritage. He calm
ly, honestly and legally investigated the
official actions of the State and national ad
ministration. He showed their great official
derelictions and proved -every position ad
vanced by the public records.
Da. 'Bakes tvas called to the rostrum
He made a telling speech of over one -hour
io length, during which he closely scrutin
ized the ects of the powers that be, the
inconsistency of their administrative policy
and exposed the abuse of the trust confided
to their hands. He deprecated the doctrine
of rebellion and secession showed that it
never" had originated with the democratic
party or was jt encouraged by their practice.
He defended the rights of the soldiers who
were bravely serving their country thought
'they ought to be bener paid and fairly
treated -arrd predicted that the day of reck
oning was coming which would tause a
rattling, if not of dry bones, a correction of
existing abases and corruptions. Dr. H.

State, thought there should be a law enact"
ed to prevent rheir migration here took a
Tote on the subject, and it was carried unan
imously in the affirmative. - -
Mr. Aaron Andrews, Chairman on Reso
lutions, then read the following, which were
adopted wh great unanimity:
Whereas, the northern and sourthern
portions of our country are eugagaged in a
terrible war (if a proper spirit of true patri

of 1860, '61) miht have been avoided by

the pursuits of happiness.
F.esolved, That we have as yet seen no
prospect of a return of our nation to its nor

Resolved, That if a civil war like the one
in which we are now engaged will cektias
lt unite our States, restore peace, harmony
and prosperity and unite oar people in du
rable bonds of brotherly love, it should be
aided by every man to the full extent of his
power and ability.
Resolved, It this war is to be prosecuted
for any other purpose or object, except the
Union of the States under our glorious con
stitution, it would merit the -condemnation
of every American citizen.
Resolved, That in the pursuit of any poli
cy the object of the government should be
to protect, restore and unite; and not to
devastate, destroy and separate.
Resolceii, That in the pursuit of a war
policy, we should open wide the door for
an amicable re-union at the earliest possi
ble moment. '
Resolved, That the disregard shown by our
Executive and those onder his authority of
the writ of Habeas Corpu,and the contempt
for the decision of our bigheet Tribunal,
the seizure and obtaining names 'of a re
spectful and respectable petition to the Pre
idem, and the suppression of Free Speech
and Free Press, by military authority are
high-handed usurpations and agressions up
on the rights of individuals and American
Freemen which have no paralel in the his
tory of our country and which call for tne
unqualified condemnation of every Uw
abiding and constitution loving citizen.
Rtiolved, That io the opinion of this Meet
ing the constitution, as it is, is the only
sheet anchor of satety upon which our ex
pressions are lounded.

President Lincoln'! Cabinet.
It must be well known to our readers that
neither the capitalists nor the substantial
men of either party in (he country at large,
have entire confidence in the ability or in
tegrity ol a portion of the . present Cabinet
at Washington ; and that there has been
among Republicans and Democrats alike,
always excepting the contractors and politi
cal plunderers, a demand for some changes,
at the earliest moment compatible with the
President's views of the public interests.
It was (suggested that previous to any fa
vorable action upon the recent loan'those
who expeced :o assume this financial ob
ligation fchould pass a vote of ''want of con
fidence" in a portion of the Cabinet, with
the hope that the President woold bring
about a speedy reform. But many who
favored the result, were not willing to seem
to take advantge 0 the Government neces
sities at such a crisis, and the movement
was, therefore, postponed. Now that the
loan has been unconditionally taken, it
would not, perhaps, be excepecting too
much of the President, that he should con
sider the wishes of those who have stood
so fathfully by the Government, as well as
the outspoken desire of a great part of the
nation, and inaugurate sncb cbangea aa the'

Montonr County Convention.
The Democracy of Montour county met
in Convention, in Danville, on Monday of
last week, and nominated the following gen
tlemen to be supported at the coming elec
tion : Associate - Judges Robert Moore,
Joseph Dean, sen.; Commissioners Isaac
Amraerrrran; District Attorney J.'H. Camp
bell ; Auditor iHenrysSnyder. From what
we know of these nominees, wo should
think "the Democracy of Montour county
had made a good selection. This ticket is
a strong oirs, and will be successful.
Thomas Chalfant and Jesra C. Amraerman
were appointed Repretenlative Conferees
to meet similar Conferees of the other coun
ties in this Representative District to nom-
'irrate two eandidates for Representatives.
After the nominations were made the fol
lowing able, national and patriotic resolu
tions received the unanimous endorsement
of the Convention :
Resolved, That the Democratic party from
the time of its organization to the present
day, has always been. and still is, in the
most emphatic aense, a 'Union party, devo
ted to the conservation of the Union on the
great principles on which that Union was
formed, and there is, therefore, neither ne
cessity or 'propriety that calls upon ;the
Democratic party to abandon its time-non-ored
principles with a view to the forma
tion of a new .political organization.
Resolved, That we unqualifiedly condemn
the action of the so called Confederate States
in their secession from and rebellion against
thi National Government, believing as we
do that every real wrong which that section
of the Union has at any time suffered , miht
have been fully redressed under oitr Na
tional Constitution and in the Union.
Resolved, That we are ready to unite in
political action with every citizen of the
present rebellion, for preserving, protecting
and defending the Constitution and for faith
fully executing the Uws, and that we are
opposed to any war and eqnally to any peace
which is based upon the idea of the separa
tion of these'States.
Resolved, That this war should not be
waged lor conquest or subjugation, nor for
the purpose of overthrowing or interfering
with firt) rights or established -institutions of
the States, but to defend and maintain the
supremacy of the Constitution and to pre
serve the Union.
Rewlved, That the volunteer soldiers, who
at the cll of their country, promptly went
forth to do battle in defence of the Consti
tution and laws, are entitled to our hearty
thanks for the gallant manner in which they
have discharged their duties.
Retailed. That we 'pledge to the ticket this
day formed, our undivided support.
Hon. Joseph Holt.
The Detroit Free Press says this gentle
man, who now occupies so large a share of
the puplic attention, in consequence of his
energetic, bold, statesman-like and patriot
ic action, while a member ol Mr. Buchan
an's Cabinet, and thethrilfirg eloquence
of his speeches, on behalf of the Union, is
personally known, comparatively to but
few persons, beyond the bounds of his own
State. For the information of his many ad
mirers, we copy the following article in re
gard to his personal character from the
Louisville Journal. Mr Prentice, we believe
has never before the present difficulties ac
t1 nnliticallv with Mr Holt. Therefore
he tribute which he pays to Mr. Holt's
personal integrity and worth are all the
more valuable :
"This gentleman left here on Saturday
for the Falls ol Niagara greatly to the re
gret ol the many devoted friends he has in
u : . . t w. W 1 r, I, m rt r I iKd Kill n 'I urHnflrwta
j admire his iua anJ eloquence, for
I ihev. are a portion of the national wealth :
nor do we envy the condition of any one
who does not know him We have known
j among the immortals ol his country s his-
1 try by gemua ana oratory. v nat a
feel if it had in some of the chief places of
counsel the talents and integrity of Joseph
Holt. Yet, we believe it would be much
more easy to induce the President to offer
him such a position than it would be to ob
tain Mr. Holt's consent to accept it Wher
ever he may be, in public or private, may
his lile be as blissful as hid virtues are ex
alted and noble'
What a happy exchange for the country
if President Lincoln would invite Secretary
Cameron to step out of ihe War Department
j and Mr. Holt to step in I The efiect of
I such a movemect would be like a great vic-
tory over the 'most stupendous system of
fraud and conuption that ever gnawed at
the vitals or Government. Public confidence
would at once be established upon a firm
basis, and the country leel sure that its
great interests and contributions were in
trusted to safe hands.
. What Constitutes a Tatriot?
An individual who loves his country, his
whole country, and zealously supports and
defends it and it interests may truly be
termed a patriot. Patrotism can not exist
in the heart of him who walls up the boun
daries of self, partitioning off sections
wherein his affections and his all are con
centrated. The moment a sectional senti
ment receives care and nutrition, that mo
ment the patriot becomes the supple vas
sal of errors which will inevitably absorb
the last vital spark, transferring the true
loyal citizen into a mere creature, the half
