Oar Candidates for Assembly.
The Democratic Representative Confer-
- een ratt in Tnokhannock, Wyoming coun
' lyt on Friday the 11th inst, and nominated
for Assembly, George D. Jackson, of Sal
livun county, and John C. Ellis, ot Mon
tour county. They are now the regnlarly
nominated candidates for the Legislature,
and we bospeak for them a hearty and en
thosia;ie support at the coming election.
Fettling ti.at we should say something for
, -these gentlemen, we clip the following
from the Sullivan Democrat, which meets
out viowa I precisely . It says "both these
- gentlemen are entirely qualified for the po
sition , for which they are selected. Mr.
Jackso has represented this District in the
Lej;islatnie for three sessions to the entire
satisfaction of his constituents a mau of
general intelligence, and a liberal-minded
aoci patriotic public citizen. His colleague
on the saioe ticker Hon. John C Ellis, is
. a man wl-ose character and standing in the
dit.rict is ttbove reproach, whilst bis business
. Labile em inenlly fit him for the proper dis
cbs.re of the duties of Representative. It is
of tbe utmost importance that good men
should be sent to our Slate Legislature at
this; tine.; The State has been sadly plan---
deied by the Cortin Abolition party. Not
a chance has been neglected by this band
of immacalate patriots. This whole matter
will be exliomed when the Democracy as-
autrea the reigns of government. Tbe Leg
ist ore will have to take the initiative in
. this expose, and hence the importance of
having men of character and standing in
. the Legislature. In this matter tbe Democ-
- racy of eat District hat acted in a com
mendable spirit. Both " these gentlemen
will reeeivu the united support of the Dem-
. ocratic party, and will be triumphantly
elected on; the second Tuesday of October."

bad printed and circulated a band-bill call

Democratic Meeting la liloomkborg.
- On Saturday evening, Sept. 18th inst., tbe
Democracy ol Columbia county bad a large
and spirited meeting in the Court House, at
Bloomsburg. At an arly hour the house
was crowded with noble and patriotic fath
ers .and mother?, sons and daughters of
Almost every township in the county was
represented by an enthusiastic delegation
of men who were proud to declare to the
world that they were Democrats.
The meeting was organized by motion of
Hon. John MeUynold, that Levi L Tate
be President of the meeting.
On motion of Wnr. H. Jacoby. the follow
ing persona were made Vice Presidents :
Peter Ent, S. H. Miller, Daniel Snyder,
John Hill, Philip Kistler, James Freeze,
Joseph Poe, John A. Funston, A. J. Albert
son, Samuel Lake, M. C. Woodward, John
C. Lemon, David Lowenburg.
On motion, W. Wirt and Charles G. Bark
ly, Esqrfc., were appointed Secretaries.
W. H.Jacoby and M.C. Woodward, were
appointed a committee to Invite Hon. Chas.
Inoersoll, of Philadelphia, to address the
audience. But a few moments passed till
the committee returned, escorting Mr In
gersoll, when three beany cheers were giv
en for bim.
The speaker introduced his remarks by
saying that the great question now to be
decided by the people of Penn'a, was
whether George W. Woodward or Andrew
G. Curtin should be the next Governor of
our State. And reminded them that aliho'
this, in limes past, would have been but a
local question, now the affairs of tbe Gen
eral Government had swallowed op State
interests and rendered the issue wholly
He then discussed, in a logical manner,
the effects of the enormoos tax system and
paper currency, and varaed the people of
the inevitable pinch they must in a short
time suffer. He nejt dwelt upon the un
precedented, unjustifiable and inhuman ar
bitrary arrests and confinement of patriotic
citizens by the present administration; thus
depriving a fre people of the Inalienable
Riahta of personal security and personal
Liberty. Lastly he spoke of tbe Conscrip
tion Act ; nobly declaring his opinion that
it is illegal and unconstitutional. He que
tioned the right of any power to take citi
zens from their homes and make slaves of
them. Concluding with a few remarks
upon the upright character and abi'iiy of
George W. Woodward. He asked every
one to discuss in hit own mind, considering
the past actions of Gov. Curtin, whether he
was a suitable man to maintain the honor
of a great State like Penn'a.
Mr. Ingersoil indulged in no harsh terms
of reproach upon the Opposition party, but
displayed great logic throughout his whole
speech and prcved to every one who heard
him that he is, what he has the reputation
of being, a great statesman.
At the close of the meeting three hearty
cheers were given for Woodward, Lowrie,
and the Constitution.

Chas G. Barklt, J
Woodward Slock High Up.
Everywhere throughout the Slate the De
mocracy appear to be confident of a trinm
pbant victory. Our visit to Cumberland
last CourtJ week gave us an oppertunity of
seeing and conversing with a large number
of the leading and roost influential Demo
crats of nearly every township, and they,
one and all, gave it aa their deliberate
opinion that Woodward.s majority would
reach absut 1200 in the county. The rebels
invasion has greatly damaged Curtin in
the valley. The people verj justly charge
bim with neglect of duty and hold him res
ponsible for the defenceless condition of the
State. The same feeling, we are credibly
informed, exists in Franklin, Fulton, Adams
and York counties, as will be apparent
when the ballot-boxes are counted off, and
all along the Southern tier of counties the
Democratic gains will be onprecedentedly
large, and astounding to the Black Repub
We have never known the Democratic
party of this State in as good trim as it is
at the present lime. It is everywhere a
unite in support of Woodward and Lowrie,
and it is daily and hourly gaining accessions
from the conservative portion ot the Repub
lican party. We have every reason to an
ticipate an old-iashoned Jackson majority
id Pennsylvania on the second Tuesday
of October, and, in addition, the Democra
cy expect to carry Ohio, Indiana, Illinois,
Iowa and Wisconsin to boot. Tbe skies look
bright all around the political horizon, and
the days of Abolitionism are numbered.

A Tried Man
The Presbyterian Banner says, "Gover
nor Curtin is a tried man." Truly, - be is;
and not only is be "a tried man," but a
convieted one also. Judgement has been
passed upon him. and the day of execution
appointed Tuesday, the 15th ol October,
1863, between the hours of 9 o'clock a. m.
and 7 o'clock p. m. The execution will be
in public, and so intense is the feeling, that
a large concourse of people is expected to
witness the preliminary ceremonies and
the final struggles of the condemned man.
There is no hope of pardon, and we under
stand the unhappy man is preparing to
meet his fate with fortitude He is daily
receiving such consolation as his ghostly
advisers, M'Clure, Covode, Mann, Mc
Micbaei, and other saints of the political
calender caj administer.

pretending to be Democrats, go about as
sailing tbe candidates on the Democratic
ticket and retailing the stale and ridiculous
stories of the Abolitionists about "d;loyal
ly" "treason," "sympathy with secession"
&c. Such men are traitors o the Democrat
ic cause ! They are, soul aoj body, the
property of the Abolitionists! They have
been bought with Lincoln greenbacks, to

OUB TRIP TO TCSKHASNOCE.
In company with Hon. John C. Ellis, Hi
ram Antrim and Wu, A. Dean, all ol Mon
tour county, whom we joined at the Blooms
burg and Lackawanna Railroad Depct, we
paid a visit to tbe ancient and venerable
town of Tunkhannock, Wyoming coun'y,
Pa., on Friday the 11th inst., as a Represen
tative Conferee, to meet other Conferees
from this Representative District in Confer
ence, for the purpose of nominating two
candidates for Assembly, to be voted for
at the coming election.
At Berwick we bad an acquisition made
to onr company in the person of Jeremiah
S Sanders, the able and talented editor of
the Berwick Gazette, who was our worthy
and active colleague in the Conference
We commenced our journey on Thursday
evening by taking the cars at this place for
Scramon, Luzerne co., a distance of some
60 miles, and arrived there a little after 9
o'clock, P. M. We put up there for the
night with the gentlemanly Proprietor Mr
Burgess of the Wyoming House, who fur
nished us with all tbe necessaries and com
forts that guests could reasonably demand.
This House is well conducted, rooms and
bedding in excellent condition, table smply
provided with the best the Market affords,
and the landlord's bill accordingly. At this
place we chartered a private conveyance to
take us to Tunkhannock, a distance of twenty-five
miles, the village we had set o Jt for.
We boarded oar Cab, with two fine Heeds
hitched before it, about 6 o'clock im the
morning, and traveled 9 miles, when we
drew up in front ol the Public House cf Mr.
M. W. Bi.ifs, in Abington Centre, Luzerne
co., where our party enjoyed a warm break
fast This House is a large one. and bears
the appearance of being conducted proper
ly and with a good deal ot care. The town
is small, nevertheless handsome, consisting
of about 18 or 20 dwelling houses, a school
house, church, and a blacksmith shop. To
the end of our journey, from this place, we
had 16 miles to travel.
The next place which attracted some at
tention was Factoryville, where we irrired
after several hour's ride, the nearest pont
to Tunkhannock by railway, it being nine
miles. Factoryville is a shipping point for
Tunkhannock and vicinity on the Delaware,
Lack., Si Western Railroad. The roads in
this section were rough hilly and tedious.
It being a very dry season, and the dust at
places nearly suffocating to the traveler,
made the trip not as pleasant as it otherwise
would have been.
We arrived in Tunkhannock a few mo
ments before 12 o'clock. M , and met Hon.
Geonge D. Jack so v of Sullivan co., wi.h his
Conferees from the upper counties of this
Representative District, at T. B Wall's Ho
tel. We, with the other Conferees of the
District, met in session almoM immediately
on our arrival, and unanimously nominated
for Assembly, Hons. George D. Jack -on, of
Sullivan co., and John C. Ellis, of Montour
co. uur stay in mis place was snort, not
nns enough to take a stroll about tne own.
What we seen of the place was handsome
There are some nice farming land in the
vicinity and neighborhood of Tunkhannock.
The Susquehanna river and North Branch
Canal rnn close by the town. As for the
people of the place, we can only say, with
those whom we became acquainted we were
much pleased. They seem like sociable
and obliging people.
Harvey Sickler. the able and spicy editor
of the North Branch Democrat, took Mr San
ders and ourself into bis office and exhibited
to us his well selected cases of type, and
all his facilities lor executing job-wor and
priming a paper. Mr. Sickler, is District
Attorney for Wyoming co , and this office,
in connection with publishing the Democrat,
ought to afford him a very snog living. The
type-se'ting for his paper is principally done
by two handsome young ladies, whom we
saw at work in the office, Mr. S. prints a
sound Democratic paper, one that never
swerves from the principles as laid down
by the founders of the Democratic party.
Success to him and the cause which advo
cates. At 2j o'clock, in the afternoon, w bid
adieu to the town, and parted with onr Sul
livan and Wyoming county friends, assur
ing each other that the Democratic vote
would be largely increased at the coming
election, in our respective counties. The
counties represented by our party alll give
Democratic majorities, and will continue to
do so until the people are convinced that
Democratic principles are wrong.
On our way back to Sctanton, we fok a
glance at the agricultural improvements, as
we passed tbe different farms. The ground
through the section of country in which we
passed, is pretty generally rough ; so much
the case that it is impossible for the larm
ers to use tbe drill or reaper. Their Fall
crops, such as corn, buckwheat, and pota
toes, look exceeding well for that land.
The apple yield is a promising one. The
farmers of Luzerne and Wyoming counties,
raise some very fine fruit. They have a
good market at Scranton. We saw them on
the road for that place with loads of hay,
straw, oats, potatoes, apples and cabbage.
From what we observed the farmers pretty
generally sell off their crops as soon at they
are gathered. Not one stack of grain, nor
scarcely one ot hay, was seen standing on
our whole route from Scranton to Tunkhan
nock. They build small barns, with no
yards attached in order that manure may
be made and saved for their land. There
may be 'some very good larmers among
them, but we think our Columbia county
farmers excel them. Their stock is good,
fully op to any with us or on the Wyoming
fiat. They pay some attention to mising
sheep in these counties, more than the farm
ers do in Columbia county.
On arriving in Scranton at o'clock, P.
M., on our return, we spent the night with
the obliging and accommodating Proprietor
of the St. Chailes Hotel. This is a Demo
cratic house, kept in excellent style, and
terms moderate. At 5i o'clock in tbe morn
ing, we took the cars for Bloomsburg, and
after some several hour's riding, arrived
safely at tbe Lack. Si Bloomsburg Railroad
Depot, wbere we parted with our Montour
friends, and, npon the whole, felt pleased
with our trip. We left our friend Sanders
at Berwick, the point where he joined us.
A Democratic Meeting was held at the
Court House, in Bloomkburg, on Saturday
afternoon, the 12th insf. There was a good
turn-out people present from all parts of
the count. The attendance of the ladies
I was nothing less than complimentary. They
teel a deep interest in the issues before the
country, to be decided upon on the 13th of
October next, at the ballot-box. The meet
ing came to order by appointing the follow
ing gentlemen as officers :
' President Hon. STEPHEN BALDY, of
Vice Presidents Jacob Evans, Geo. Wea

John Dieterick, John Fruit, John Cressler,

Secretaries'-Dr. Hiram C. Hower, Lieut.
A. B. Tate.
On motion, Tkchak II. Turdt, editor of
the Nor thumbet land Co. Democrat, came for
ward and addressed the people in a speech
of about two hour's duration, which was
listened to with the utmost attention. The
speech was well received, and will have
good effect. Mr. Purdy is an able speaker
one who dare maintain the right, let the
consequences be what they may. lie is a
Constitutional man, and loves that docu
ment with irue sincerity. This Union can
not and will not be restored only under the
Constitution as it is; and the Union as it was
is the only way the Democratic party will
agree to accept it. Who were the friends
of tbe Union, and always true to their
Government and flag, was clearly shown by
the speaker, and in such a manner that no
argument could successfully rebut it. He
exposed Governor Curtin's administration,
! showing that no administration has been so
plainly itteminVil wivh fr:tnd and corruption,
in every department, since the e-ianli-h-ment
o! this State Government; ar d jet,
Curtin tins, alter pnhlichin bis declination
for re-nomination, the cool impodence ta

The people will attend to him at the com
ing election. At the close of the address
the speaker received three hearty cheers,
alter which the meeting adjourned.

A few days ago we saw in tbe streets of
this fair city a sight calculated to fill every
heart with horror Walking between a file
of soldiers, in one of our most crowded
thoroughfares, were five white freeman,
handcuffed and strongly guarded by their
military escort. Over the iron manacles
that bound the wrists of several were
thrown handkerchiefs ; and the downcat
look and sorrowing eye of the con$ctip!s
told how deeply they felt the degredation
they were compelled to suffer. These men
had committed no crime There names
had been drawn from the fatal wheel; and,
in the agony of doubt, whether they should
remain with their loved ones :n these sore
times of want and trial, or eagerly march to
fill the ranks of the army in this "war for
the African and his race," they had not
promptly reported to the provost Marshal's
office, and were called deserters. This sight,
we are informed, is no extraordinary one.
It is of frequent and almoat hourly occur
rence. Compelled to suffer ihe grossest in
dignities, thousands are daily tortured with
the galling thought that in this land of free
dom they must meet the fate ot slaves.
But, be patient ! A few weeks more only
must pass away, before the freemen of
Pennsylvania will have an opportunity oT
smilting at the ballot-box the miscreants
who are now striving to deprive them of
their liberties. In going to the polls, re
member, freemen, that the Abolitionists of
this proud city have forged handcuffs for
white men, and given ehoulder-straps to
negroes ! The Age.
It is said that the Jeff Davis correspon
dence, discovered at bis home in Missis
sippi, several letters of which have been
published, has been sent to Washington.
The reason of this disposition of it is, that
several letters are amongst it from Benja
min F. Butler, Daniel S. Dickinson, A. E.
Burnside, and others of the Breckinridge
couspirators, who have since joined the
Abolition party, which partisan interests
require phould be suppressed. They will
be suppressed, of course, though they be
more treasonable than all the other corres
pondence beide. Only such letters will be
published as will damage political oppo
nents. It is believed that the existence or
these letters of Bjtler, Dickinson and Burn
side has influenced their obsequiousness to
the Linrotn Administration. Chicago Times.
A Democratic Meeting will be held in
Mifilinville on Saturday next. The De
mocracy are becoming fairly aroused to the
cause of Constitutional Liberty and Free
Speech. The day in which arbitrary ar
rests and usurpations of power will be
brought to an end is not far off. The peo
pie are only waiting patiently an opportu
nity at the ballot-box to put a stop to this
high banded robbery and plundering going
on in the different departments in our State
Government Able speakers will address
tbe meeting at Mifilinville. Daniel Ermen
trout will be one of the speakers.
Little Things. People who are ncac
customed to studying economy in their little
arrangements, have little idea how easily
money may be saved, and at the same time
caralort secured by a little , attention to a
little economy in little things. In illustra
tion, take the little article of metal tips worn
on tbe toes of little shoes. It is asserted
that by this article alone, the snug little
sum of over six million dollars is annually
saved lo ihose wbo use them, and at tbe
same time not a little amount of comfort
and protection added to some three million
pair of little feet. So with many other little
Car Senatorial Candidate.
We place at the head of onr paper, to
day, the choice of the Senatorial Confer
ence, which met at Danville. That person
is Davis B. Montgomery, of Northumber
land county. This is a good nomination,
one that will add strength to the ticket in
his county. In Columbia county he "will
receive the regular Democratic vote, which
will be largely increased at this Fall's elec
tion. He is a man of considerable ability
and experience ; understands the affairs of
State and Nation folly as well, if not better,
than "any other man" in the District. We
will have, in him, an honest, careful and
safe Representative in the Senate. He will
be our next Senator, and worthy successor
to the present member, Frank Bound It
matters not who the Abolitionists trot out
against snch men as David B. Montgomery
they are doomed to certain defeat. The
proceedings of the Senatorial Conference
will appear in our next. We will have a
word to say about this nomination in one
other of our paper, previous to tbe election.
Democrats, be vig ilent, your ticket is com
plete, now gow to work !
Singular Coincidence There is an ex
Justice of the Peace living in the lower end
of Luzerne county, who had a son in the
7th Regiment of the Penn'a Reserves; tbe
father and son keeping up a constant cor
respondence, and sending valuable pres
ents constantly to each other, until early
last spring, when the Father joined the
Republican party, and the son deserted
from the army. Vox.
The Republican party profess very deep
sympathy in favor of onr adopted citizens,
and their right of voting and enjoying equal
privileap with our native born citizens.
How migh'ily have their principles charg
ed si' ce Know-Nothing and Wide-Awake
times. I abhor such abomniable hypocra
cy. Just listen to the expression of an old
Republican who was the Republican candi
date for Associate Judge, in Columbia co.,
at their last election for Associate Judges,
(and would have been elected too, only he
did not receive votes enough) he said that
the Hon. Charles Denison was elected to
Congress last Fall by the Dkeos or Europe.
Now it should be borne in mind, that Mr.
Derison and Judge Woodward are friends,
and of the same political principles, and
the men who elected Mr. D-nison cannot
very easily be persuaded or driver., by Re
publican brow. beating, to re-elect Mr. Cur
tiu Governor of Pennsylvania.

Amusing. It is amusing to see how the
Curtin-Abolition organs in this Represen
tative District squirm. Little Charly, of
the Danville Democrat, issues a call for a
Republican County Convention, to nomi
nate a ticket, while the old Know-Nothing
of the 'Amencan, says ihe call is bogus and
should not be countenanced. Thus we see
what harmony exists in the ranks of the
opposition party in this District, and the
hopelessness of their cause. Just as sure
as the second Tuesday of October comes,
Hon. Geo. D. Jackson and John C. Ellis
will be triumphantly elected. Sullivzn Co.
Paying cp an Old Score. The Patriot
and Union says, as one of the drafted men
came out ol the Provost Marshal's office
day before yesterday, just three hundred
dollars shorter than he went in, be cast his
glance around upon the lugubrious faces of
the throng of expectants standing in the
hall, whose hour have not yet come, and
soothed his kindred spirits thus : "Boys
three years ago I was a gay 'Vide Avake,'
and wore a glazed cap at my own expense
but the coal oil was said to be free. They
are now settling that coal oil account ; I've
paid mine, and here's a receipt in full."
Saying which be flourished his commutation
Abraham Lincoln says that "The Gov
eri. mnt connot endure permanently half
slave and half free." Jefferson Davis 6aid
that "A onion between slave States and free
Slates is impossible." The promulgation
of such doctrines in the North and tbe South
occasioned the civil war which, ia now de
stroying the nation. Which of the two sen
timents is most deserving of reprobation?
Yet the spurious "loyalists" who cringe at
the footstool of the despot at Washington
attempt to elerate its guilty head to the po
sition and dignity of a patriot !

Republican State Convention, Aug. 5, 1863.
Mr Cummings is only one ot the many
formerly warm and influential friends of
Curtin, who now are deserting him in the
hour of trial when be most needs their sup
port. So it is, Curtin has made a very un
popular Governor, even with his own party.
Cummings is a leading Republican !

But let ell vo'e soldiers of both parties.
