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." - Treason in Riga flares. . Oct read era will all remember that a lit tie over a jrear ago, President Lincoln ar . res:ed tbe editors ol the Pat not and Union, at Harrisbnrg, the charge against one in . . par.icular,;if not both of them, was that they bad printed and circulated a band-bill call ing for oe;ro recruits, purposing to raise - a regirnet.1 of colored troops. For this they ; were arres ed and dragged away from their bones, from under the eres of Andrew G. Curtin., and witbont the granting of a trial, Caiiin ttai ding by and looking on as ua- . .concerned as if nothing was going on. Thfise gentlemen committed treason, played the part of disloyalty, and was punished ac . cordingly ly the 'Lincoln Government."

Thia was considered trea son and dit loyalty to the Government by . theta -vrhei they arrested the Patriot and . Unm oditqrs. .Is it treason now 1 What dolheydejine treason now ?

At an arly hour the house was crowded with noble and patriotic fath ers .and mother?, sons and daughters of Democracy. . 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 Federal. 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. LEVI L TATE, Pres'l. W Wirt. ) Chas G. Barklt, J Secretaries. 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 licans. 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. Lancaster Intelligencer. m m u . 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. . Sniaks. -Democrats, beware of men, who, 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 play the sneak and do tbe dirty, work of pur enemies. 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. Democratic Heeling. 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 Cattawissa. Vice Presidents Jacob Evans, Geo. Wea ver, Wm. Howell, Peter Ent, John McRey nolds, John Robison, Jeremiah Hagenbnch, John Dieterick, John Fruit, John Cressler, Peter Billmeyer, Frederick Eyer, William Witenight, T. J. Vanderslice. 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 ask a re e'ection at the hands o the people. 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. STEPHEN BALDY, Pres't. H. C. Hower, ) A. B. Tate, J feec- ! Shonlder-straps for Xrgroes acd nand-enfis ( r. nhii. m. JUI HUUC uicu 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. Democratic Meeting. 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 things. Tribune. 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 ! COmilTXICATED. 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. Vox Populi. Hed Qrs. Battery F., 1st Art't. P. R. V. C. September 7, 1863. Mr Dear Sir: In your issue of Sept 2d, 1863, you speak of me s " commanding Battery F., 1st Pa. Artillery, at the battle of Gettysburg." I commanded that portion ol it on which the enemy charged, but vndtr Capt. R. Bruce Rickets, of Orangeville Pa., who was present during the' action. It is owing, in a great measure, to his courage and presence of mind, that the charge was repulsed after the Infantry ran, who were to support us. 1 am, Sir, Yonr Obd'l Serv't, C. B. BROCK WAY, lit Lieut. Battery F , 1st Arty, P.R.V.C. 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. Democrat. 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 receipt. 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 ! GOVERNOR CURTIN CAN NOT SE CURE THE SUPPORT OF EITHER HIS i OWN PARTY OR HIS OFFICE HOLD ERS. Speech of Alex Cummmgs, before the 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 ! "Let the soldiers vote." Abolition jxtper. But let ell vo'e soldiers of both parties. Don't allow the republicans to come home and do the voting, whilst Democrats are compelled to keep their places in the army to do the fighting.
