.. ..: Kf publican Union Convention.
The Republicans, with a bUgtt sprinkling
of Democrats, met in Contention, at the
Court House in rhis place, on Saturday af
ternoon last, and nominated a whole county
ticket to be supported at the coming elec
tion.' The Convention was callel ta order by
-fbe ppwfiirrrer.tof Isaac S. MonR8b, Bem--ocrat,
of CaKaifisn, President, assisted by
s half Jbzen Vice Presidents. Mesrrs. A.
W. Rae, of Conyngham, and Johnson Ikler,
cf Greenwood, acted as Secretaries.
The Contention be.ng permanently or
ganized, the Chaic was empowered to ap
point iwx Contiitie, one on rroroVaatrons
and the other todratt and report Resolutions.
The Commitee en nominations afieT retire
tug t reosa raffle considerable length of
time, came forward and reported the follow-
oame separately. The ticket as reported
was as follows :
Representative Emanuel La tarns. Dem
ocrat, of Orange; Sheriff Richard Stiles,
Dem' of Benton ; Treasurer William Sny
der. Dem. of Bioom: Commissioner John
Kei'fer, Dem. of Main; Asspciale Judge
Jonas Doty, Dem. of Fisbingcreek, and
Stepha Baldy, one of the Democratic nomi
nees, of Cattawissa ; Auditor JShnson Ik
ler. Dem. of Greenwood; Coronor Benj. F.
Hartman, Republican of Bloom.
Thus it will be seen that the Democratic
rartv was treated liberally, having received
all ' the nominations but one. From the
looks of this ticket the Union slock in the
Republican, party must hare been rather
scarce on last Saturday. They have heretofore-claimed
to be : the Union party, but
wbea the time arrives to trot out their men
for office, they take vp Democrats t The
Democratic party, we have sa:d and we re
peat it, is. and always has been a Union
party, and the fact that the Republican party
creep into our ranks for material to form a
ticket, goes to strengthen our declaration.
They would not trust a, Republican to be
placed on their ticket for any prominent
position, and why I Was it because they
were not good Union men ! We will leave
our readers to form, their own conclasioos
on. this matter.
After the ticket was fully formed and
agreed upon, on motion of Geo. W. Lott of
Orattgeville, Robert F. Clark, Esq., made a
few fine remarks in relation to each man on
the-ticket. Previous to his bestowing this
eulogy upon the ticket, however he was
sent for to address the Convention, which
be did at nearly an hour's length. In the
course of his very earful Iy worded remarks
be referred to the Democratic Convention
which assembled in this place not long
since, by saying that, that body was com
posed of the fragments of the Democratic
party, aud that he knew hundreds of demo
crats who would not vo'e for the ticket as
formed by that Convention. The speaker
was rather severe upon the Democrats In
several instances in the course of his re
marks.. This Convention speaking honestly was
largely attended ; a great many men hav
tng been brought there out of cuiiosity.
There were several townships, we are in
formed, that were not represented, but the
overplus in many of the other districts serv
ed to make up the vacancy.
The nominations were all made without
opposition with the exceptions of one.
That one was the nomination of Stephen
Baldy for Judge. Several prominent men
in the Convention strongly opposed this
nomination, on the ground that he was not
a sound Union roan that he had attended
Peace Conventions which were no more
than secession !" . This assertion they are
not able to substantiate, and finally upon
taking a vote Baldy was nominated, at the
disgust of his opponents.
All business before the Convention being
transacted, a motion to adjourn was offered
and carried. .

Judge Sharswood of Philadelphia is wide
ly known as one of the most learned and
minent jurists in the country. The Dera
ecatic Convention of Philadelphia recently
nominated him for re-election to the office

Pnring his long career on the liench the

never been impeached, and bo man ha ev-
rt thought, mucn less xeuiuicu m
that he ever pertniiled his political opinions
to have ihe most remote influence in de

rtati-rally suppose that the advocates of no
party in the choice of persons to fill purely
political or represenative offices would be
Loyalty of Ibe Democratic Party.
ft is rather remarkable that the determi
nation of the Democratic party to maintain
its organization should be regarded in any
quarter as an evidence of either disloyalty
to the Government, or desire to embrfra-s
the administration in the prosecution of the
war for the suppression of rebellion par
ticularly as unwavering devotion to the
Union characterizes the past history of that
party, and its present position is accompa
nied with renewed expression of devotion
to the best interest of the whole country.
The fact that thousands ot Democrats
have volunteered for the defence of the
Government, and that thousands more are
sustaining it at home without renouncing
one particle of their political opinions,
should be sufficient to demonstrate that
Democratic principle are in no way incom
patable with geniuine patriotism and that
absolute -and -entire conformity to the pecu
liar political views entertained by the party
which elevated the present Administration
nower. is not necessary to an efficient sup
port of the Government. On the contrary,
a liberal and friendly toleration of political
differences is an element of strength in this
country, instead of a source of weakness,
as many suppose ; for the moment any par
ty .in power seeks to stigmatise and brand
its political oppenenents as enemies of the
country, they pursue a course calculated to
produce discord, -dissatisfaction and weak
Party should at all times foe subordinate
to-country; and in times of greatperil like
the present, this should be peculiarly the
case. The Democratic party proposes to
hfrld their political opinions in strict subor
dination to.the paTamourrt mterests of the
Union, and to bend all their nergies in the
field and in the National Councils towards
accomplishing the restoration of the Union,
and vindicating the grower and majesty of
the Government They neither hold or seek
m nronorale political principles inimical or
embarrassing to tbe accomplishment of this
great purpose and if Democrats ttiougm
that the maintenance of their organization
would bave an evil effect upon the country,
tbey would abandon l wiia uraro
cheerfulness- Because ttiey are persuaa
ed that its effects will be benificeni, are
they determined to stand by their princi
ples and one of these cardinal principles
and the laws.
The Democratic party is not responsible
for the revoltof the Southern States. While
it may be true that ambitious and wicked
men bave sought to make the Demo
cratic party instrumental in accomplishing
the disruption of the Union, it is, neverthe
less, an admitted fact that disunion was im
possible so long as the Democratic party
remained united and that the Secession
leaders resart'ed it as the great obstacle in
, the way of the accomplishment of their de
signs, and its disruption necessary to me
prosecution ol the Secession conspiracy.
Their desians never harmonized w lih those
of its constituent masses; and they sough'
power within its organization to betray and
destroy it, as the preliminary step to a dis
solution ol the Union.
While this is admitted by the enemies of
the Demecratic party, and while the mass
es of that party remain as true to the Union
and the Federal Government as they were
when they excited the distrust of the Seces
sion leaders, is it not irrational and wicked
for its enemies in the North to accuse it of
disloyalty for desiring to perpetuate an or
ganization recognized a, the main stay of
lhft Union ?
Northern Democrats can have no sympa
thy with the Southern rebels who have not
only raised their parricidal hands against
thn best Government upon earth, but have
also basely deserted and betrayed the Dem- ;
. . -.it
ocratic pany. While they sympatnize wun
the down trodden Union men of the Soulli,
and desire to offer them the hand of friend
ship they car. never consent to treat or com
promise with rebels, who to the great sin
of treason against their country have added
the crime ot treachery to the Democracy of
Principle, feeling and interest all com
bine to induce the Democratic party to give I
a cordial support to the Government, f rin
ciple, because the Union, the Constitution
and the laws are the basis and foundation
of Democratic principles. Feeling, because
the rebel leaders conspired to destroy the
jreat Union party in order to further their
bane designs. Interest, because a united
country will recognize and restore the broad
and comprehensive doctrines of the Union

Mr. Jackson then took a review of the
state of the country and went into a logical
discussion of the distinctive principles of

...w o r
ally approved of the Re.-olutions just adopt
ed by the meeting. Like the great Demo

be an humble member, he declared he was

Democracy the Democracy and the Union
were the watch-word of every patriot in
the land and the sheet anchor of the Nation.
Amid the din ol applause, the speaker
here resumed his seat, but the people again
called him out. Go on ! Go on, rang from
a thousand strong voices.
Rising to the importance of the occasion,
Mr. Jackson began afresh, and for an hour
continued to enchain his auditory by the
clearest and ablest speech we have listened
)o for many a day.
Col. Tatc. was then summoned to the
Stand. He remarked that after the elo
quence of the gentlemen to whom the as
sembly had so long and rapturously- listen
ed, he confessed, he scarcely knew where
to begin or what to say. Agreeing with his
distinguished friend be was convinced from
service of over thirty years in the Demo-
craiic Party, that it was the only legitimate
Union Party. Andrew Jackson had sworn,
that "the Union must and shall be pre serv-
ed," and as we were all Jackson-men, we
could show the only clean record. Aboli

denounced. Several other subjects were
ably discussed and the Speaker took his

quite a crowd was gathered. Mr. Schnabel
of Pennsylvania, wad expected, together
with W. W. Eaton, of Harilord, and others.
Whether Eaton was present or not we do
not know, but Schnabel was thpre, and

The Proposed Union of Parties.
A great number of very good and patriotic
citizens have rmbibed the idea tnai uie
cause of the Union can be best promoted at
this time by abandoning all party organiz
ations and uniting in the support ot tne ao-
ministration. We think they are mistaken,
and ihat the idea of abandoning party or
ganizations is both impracticable aud would
prove injurious'in its consequences.
It is impracticable because the Republi
can .party leaders have adopted such an ar
rogant and insulting tone towards Ihe Dem
ocratic party that no alternative is left us
but to stand upon the defensive, maintain
ing our lawful rights and cherished princi
ples, or bow beneath the yoke, and submit
abjectly to -every burden they choose to im
pose upon us. We bave as yet seen very
little inclination on the part of the Republi
can managers to depart an inch from prin
ciples that we believe injurious, if not sub
versive of our form of Government ; or to
propose any middle ground upon which
Democrats can -consent to unite wilh them.
On the contrary, their spirit is more bitter
and proscriptive than ever, and much of
what passes among them for patriotism is
nothing but vindictive parlizanship. Pro
gressions of desire for Union, and forgelful-
ness of past political distinctions come with
exceediire bad grace from those -who labor
wilh all their might to keep alive the quar
rel between the supporters of Douglas ana
Breckinridge at the last Presidential election
after the contending parties have buried the
hatchet and uuited with a common purpose
in suDDOTt of the tlovern m-ent. Professions
of a desire that party contentions shouia
cease are only covered with the transparent
varnish oi hj pocracy when they come Irom
men who demand that the war shall be
perverted into a crusade against slavery,
knowing as they do that DemoTats can
never unite with thera upon such a plat
lorm. While such elements of discord ex
ist, a pretended union of parties would be
only a hollow pretence an outward show,
brtl-fK and insincere. Better that each
party should stand alone, while vicing with
one another in rendering substantial scp
port to the Government in the grand pur
pose of restoring the Union and enforcing
Besides being impracticable, the pro
posed union would prove injurious to the
interests ol the country. Every Adminis
tration of the Government neds watching.
Parties are necessary in a free country
Congress has lurnished this Administration
w ith an almost unlimited number of men,
and amount of money, and intrusted it with
extraordinary powers for the purpose of
accomplishing a purpose dear to ihe heart
of every lover of his country the restora
tion ot the Union. If ever there was a time
when the people should watch that this
power is not abused and this money not
misaplied or squandered, this is the time
Let it be understood that there is to be no
examination, no criticism, no complaint,
and our rulers become omnipotent and ir
resDonsible. The tendency of power is to
grasp and extend its power und without
the check imposed by public opinion there
is no security against unlimited expansion
in this direction.
At a lime of great public peril our rulers
may exercise powers which the public safe
ty seems to demand, but which calmer mo
ments will condemn. If however, they
mistake acquiescence for unreserved en
dowment, there is no estimating to what
unwareniable lengths they might be tempt
ed to proceed in the entire absence of any
counterbalancing weight to steady the wa
vering scales of government.
1 1 is not only impracticable but inexpedi
ent for Democrats to abandon their organiz
ation when most require to subserve the pub
lic interests. At the same time party should
be maintained in no tactions spirit, and
with no disposition to thwart or embarrass
the Government. On the contrar7lhe sole
aim and end shonld be to uphold the Gov
erement, restore the Union, and re establish
the benificent sway of the Constitution.
