Th Ato'ition Party claim alarge amount
ot credit for their candidate lor Governor on
account of hiii having, is they pretend,
done so mcchfor the Pennsylvania soldier.
This candidal is Andhkw G. Ccktin. We
ih to know whether he ever did more for
lie i-olcitrs thsn was hi duly to do, as
'Governor ol the Stale of Pennsylvania?
"Was it Lis duly to furnish the soldier with
'shoddy clothing," ''damaged blankets,"
"paper-aoled iiLoes," &c ? Was it hia daty
to sign, the To:wnge Tax Bill, removing a
just tax cQ of a -certain rich corporation,
thus making the taxpayer of Pennsylvania
pay . onjcfiJy ! into the State Treasury the
am of CDO or more annually ? Were
4lese things jiist ? Were they the doings
of an upright imd honest Executive 1 Do
the jieople want .for Governor of Pennsyl
vania, a corrupt man and political deona
grgoe ? if so jslect Andrew G. Cdrtin, who
ii-s phwt'trtd 'he Stole out of thousand ,cheat

W'lit all ihesi thing? to damn him, there
are, still, roeti who claim him to be honest,

H'ilf joa sustain and uphold liim in his
high-handed recklessness, and inefficiency

Tle Hun. . A. Pckvunck was appoint
ed A ttorney General by Governor Ccrtis
at the beginning of his Administration
After remaii in; i.t cilice a lew months Mr
'Pcanci msined. and in doing bo he
used the following significant langaage to
the Governor :
"For reasons which appeal to my tefre
spea; I cant or consent :o continue any
iooer iu connection with your Adminisira
tion. f, threfore, tender joa my resigna
tua of the cIice af Attorney General."
li commeuting upon this nction of Mr.
Tcb viancc,! the Pittsburg Chronicle, a
hef'Ubacan journal, thus wrote :
"We aw bM informed yet . what 'hese

Vi'e can scarcely believe that the support

applying tt their favorite the tide ot 4 sol

The brain, flesh and body, of the Repab
llcan party of Cohmoia county, met in
Convention on Saturday last, at ihi place
After several ringings ol the 'Court House
bell, a sufficient number assembled to com
mence the business of their Convention.
On motion of Christian F. Knapp, of
Bloomkburg, (Inter iational Revenue Asses
sor,) George W. Lot:, M. D., of Orangeville,
was chnaea President of the meeting.
On motion of Pee John, Republican editor
anl Post Mister, George A. Bowman, of
Mifilin, and Richard Sales, , (who voted the
Democratic ticket until that party for good
and judicious reasons refused him the rromi
tion for Sheriff two years ago,) of Benton,
were made vice Presidents. .
On motion Johnson H. IkJer, (formerly a
Democrat) o! Greenwood, and Lewis Yet
tr, ol Cattawissa, were appointed Secre
taries. ; ' .' .
The first businwss brought before the
Convention was the making ol a Standing
Committee for the enduing jear. This was
did at the inMance of Robert F Clark, Emf.
The names of the gentlemen composing
said Com mi tee, we do not remember ; al
though we believe good old Iac JiJontoe,
ot Cattawissa,' is on it. He was not in at
tendance. Wonder what was the matter?
A resolution wus next read to the Con
vention by AJojnr Somuel Knorr; of the
Bloomsburg Bar, offering MorJecai W.
Jackson, ot Berwick, and George W. Lott,
M. D., of Oraogeville, as Sena'.onsll Confer
ees to meet similar Conferees of the Dis
trict forthe purpose of making a Senatorial
nomination. It was adopted.
Next, Michael Whitraoyer, Coptuin, and
President of the Unioa League of this
place, read a resolution making Henry C.
Hartman, of Bloomsbnrg, and E. W. M.
LoVt of Lime Ridge, Representative Con
ferees, Wh'icn was accepted.
Ou taking the sense of the Convention it
was thought, considering the humiliating
state of affairs ol the country, inexpedient
to make any county nominations. No. h-
ing further than District nominations were
recommended :o be made. The CouVen
tion offered no candidate.
The business part of ins Convention be
ing over, Committee was sent for the
Speaker of the day. who war holding him
self in readiness lor marching orders, at
the Exchange Hotel, in the person ot S. P.
Longtreet -of the Luzerne Bar, and who,
with the Committee, made bis appearance,
was introduced to the audience, and sj oke,
a good deal after the western style, for over
an hour. He treated on many subjects
The rebellion, the cause ol it, itsoriginaters,
and its prolongers; and bad good attention.
He aUo compared Curtint patriotism to
that of Jcdcs Wooward'h, attempting to
thow disloyally in the course and actions of
the lat er, and everything that constitutes a
loyal and patriotic man in the former, fie
failed to say "shoddy clothing" once ; and
also evaded the word Tonuae Tex. He
was entirely silent on ether bad subjects. He
saw a "Copperhead" on the cars as he was
coming to this place, who a-serted ihat
when th Democratic party gei into pow
er there wilt be no more fighting " This
inspired and warmed op the speaker. It
afforded him quite a subject. He tried to
draw a distinction between a Democrat and
a "Copperhead,'' but when we come to cal
culate IU s .meaning the ' Copperhead'' was
still there they are one and the same
thing. If you are a Democrat you are a
"Copperhead," and if yoa are a "Copper
heard" you are a Democrat. -
He spoke at some length on the Conscrip-
tion act. Of course lauded it, and raid it irn.t
a hard thiiij but he was goiig to slan t lo it J
The speech did not make a favorable im
pression on anybody hut the Republicans if
it did -en them. Too much of his logic was
destitute of foundation or -truth. His re
marks on Judge Woodward were nothing
more than the ventilation of his malice and
spleen, as was the character of bis whole
remarks towards the Democratic party.
Oh Saturday of the last week in Augast,
five deserters lrora the oirs hundred and
eighteenth Pennsylvania Regiments weie
executed at 3 o clock in the afternoon. 1: i
is said about twenty five thousand troops
witnessed the terrible scene. Some of the
newly dra'ted men were present. The sol
emn affair took place somewhere iu the
army of the Potomac; the precise spot and
and name of place, we do not remember.
The prisoners were substitutes for some ot
the drafted men, Two were Prussians, two
Iialliacs, and the other, if our memory
serves us correct, a German. Oue among
the lot was a Protestant; the other Catholics.
These poor fellows where made an example
of, by order of the Washington war Author
ities, and let cs hope that the solemn spec
tacle need never be again enacted in this
country. What a terrible thing it is that such
stringent measures have to be enforced to
keep men into the army to fight this
A Democratic meeting will be held at
Oraogeville, on Thursday, the 17th of
September 1863. It is the design of the
Democracy to hold the largest meeting
ever held in that place. Speakers from
abroad have been invited, and will be
present to address the people on the general
topics of the campaign. The great ques
tion at issue is the election of a Govgnor ;
whether we shall have the inefficient and
corropt Akdrcw G. CukTiie, or the upright,
honest, intelligent, and sterling Democrat,
Georcs W. Woodward, for our next Execu
live. The people may expect a good treat.
The speakers will be Davikl Ermkmthoct,
Esq., of Berks, Col. E V. PioLrrr, of Bad
lord, and others ; who are well informed on
all polit cal subjetts, and possess most ex
cellent oratorical powers for enlightening
those who may chose to come and hear
Gov. Ccrtin was one of the HIGH
PRIESTS of the Kow-Nothikg: party.

The Singer tfannfacturing Company
Msst-rs I. M. SikGkr& Co., of New Yo. k,
have been long and wei.' known aa enter
prising and successful manufacturers of
Sewing Machines. The public may or may
not be surprised to le.rn that the members
of that firm Dissolved their Co'parlnersh p,
by mutual consent, on the (irst instant. The
Company which now manufacture the
world renowned Singer Sewing Machine,
are a Joint Stock Company, with a capital
Urge enough to conduct a mammoth bui
i.es. It has long been felt by the members -of
the late firm that the business of their hege
establishment (whose Branch Houses xte
all over Christendom,) could be better man- j
aged as a Jobit Stock Compiny, than in & ny
other way, and that such would prove tnot-f i
conductive to the welfare oi all concerned.
For this reason the new Company was or- j
ganized. This Company is now and will
hereafter be known as The Singer Manujuc
We have reason to suppose that the me m-
bers of the late firm of Messrs. I. M. Suiter
Co., ate deeply interestpd in their behait.
The p-biic need not hesitate to besiow
on The Singer Manufacturing Company,
iheir co'filence, esteem and pztrontge.
No labor or expense has been spared by
the new Company in the making of ina-
chines of he best quality and maul exqui
site finish Nor have they spared inven
tive skill in the application ol all those in
teresting and useful devices, of the most
approved kind, for hemming, gnaging, bind
ing, gathering, tucking, fellingaorditig. &c.
A short time ago a preat reduction was
made in the prices of :r.e Singer Machines,
since which lime, and especially during the
organization cf the New Company, great
attention has been directed to the introiuc
t;onof new and useful improvements, w lich
have to do not only with the structure or
the machines, but also their manufactute -The
sales ot the SingeT Machines are ilailj
increasing to an almost incredible extent.
This is particularly true of the Family
Sewing Machines "vhicn are fast taking the
place of all others.
To recommend their manufacturing ma
chines would be to ask the attention of the
public lo something which they kno.v as
well as ourselves. But this is not true of
their Family Machines, which are ad pled
to a greater range of sewing ior family use
than any other machines which have come
under our notice. They have wondeiful ca
paci'y for a great range of work, and their
durability is only equalled by their correct
ac:ion at ail rates ot speed. The Fiimily
Sewing Machines which The Singer Manu
facturing Co.. cow offer to ibe public, are -o
simple in structure, so certain in action. c
exquisite in appearance, so exceedingly
well adapted to all the purposes for which
they are intended, as to make one almost
feel that ibeir cunningly adjusted muscles
of iron and steel are not only imbued with
life but intelligence.
Any one, even a child of six yearn old,
can learn to use these machines, far the
simple reason that they know their work
and are willing to do it. They will sow on
all kinds of cloth and with ail kinds ot
thread, whether in the hands of a mere
child or those of the most skilful mechnaic.
The Singer Manufacturing Company have
for their President, Iolee A. Hopper, Esq ,
a gentleman connected with the late firm.
Mr Hopper ia greatly esteemed in com
mercial circles. He is an unassuming gen
tleman (as all gentlemen are,) of ability,
whose suavity of manner and good heart
ednesa have won for him many admirer,
and not a few friends. "
In conclusion, we repeat that the Singer
Manufacturing Company are worthy of all !
confidence, esteem and patronage. The
will be sure' to receive h hat ihey shall met -
it, order the management of their
President, and we are among those who
wish them all that fortine 'and happiness
can bestow. i .
