Columbia County. This county, "Cop
perhead:' as it is styled, by the Republican
press, is doing as much, it not more, than
any other county iu the State, towards fll
ing her quota in the coming draft. The
townships ol Bloom, Bor. Berwick, Hem
lock, Scott, Cetitre, Cattawissa, Montour,
Briarcreek, and other?, have already filled
their quotas, by raiding vo'un'eers. The
quota for this county is 438; out of this
number 126 have been raised, and sent to
the proper rendezvous. This is not the en
lire number enlisted by any means, but
simply those who have been sent forward
to do service. We notice that the time for
volunteering has been extended to the 1st
of April. There will in consequence be no
drait on the 10. h ol March.
The Democratic State Convention, will be
held on the 24th inst. Delegates to the Con
vention are being chosen by the different
conuties. This body will comprise some
of our very best men. It is of no little im
portance that good end sound men be select-
! ed a Delegates to the next National Con
vention. The very best Democrats, men
of back-bone and nerve, and none of your
policy men, should be selected to represent
the Democratic party in that Convention
The Staunch Democracy will have all this

Since the vacancy caused by the absenre
of Major While has been filled tj the elec
tion of Dr. St. Clair, in the Indiana and
Armstrong District, we may look for a
speedy organization of the Senate, in th
election of an Abolition Speaker Whoever
is elected, he will be obliged to Tote for
himself, unless there is not a full atten
dance, which will not be likely to happen.
There are doubts about the resignation of
White being genuine, in case it is not, the
election of St. Clair is illegal. Still there
is another question in tbe case, which U,
bad Mr. Penny, the old Speaker, a legal,
constitutional right, to order a new election
even were there no dispute as to the genu
inecet-s of the resignation ? We will see.
Time will make aright all things.
The Loyal Leaguers, and destroyers of
onr country, oi this place, are in favor of the
re-nominalion of the Old Rail Splitter, Mr.
Abraham Lincoln. They don't seem to fall
in with their much loved newspaperman
and fanatic, Horace Greeley, of the Tnbune
This over-wise and -shrewd man of the
Abolition party seems to bave no sym
pathy for Mr. Lincoln. He suggests the
nomination of several other gentlemen in
preference to Lincoln, intimating that the
present incumbent has done nothing txfat
ordinary which should entitle him to a re
no ruination. He. Liucoln, has done much
to dissolve the Union, traly. When he
took the Chair there were some Union men
in the Sooth ; at least so said his first mes
sage ; but how is it now 1 How has it been
ever since the issaiog of the emancipation
proclamation, and enforcing of the confisca
tion act i Did that large Union element in
the Soatb, so much talked of by tbe Aboli
tionists of the North, remain ! No ! not a
bitofiu Lincoln succeeded in driving it
all into the Southern Confederacy, and this
was surely something extraordinary, for pt
ery President could not have accomplished
so much ia eo short a time. We fear the
breach in this Union i a little too wide for
Ah Lincoln to brinsr toaether. ' It will be
a job lor the truly Union men of tbe country
to repair, and those men are to be f juad in
the Detnocrauie party. ; ; :

Embroidering, Cording, and so forth. Ncj
other Family Sewing Machine has so modi
capacity lor a great variety of work. It will
sew ail kinds of clo h, and with all kinds of
thread. Great and recei.1 improvements
.nake our Family Sewing Machine moM
reliable, and most durable, and most cer

makes the iutsrlocked stitch, which is the
best stitch ktiown. Any one, even of the
most ordinary capacity,can see, at a glance
how to use the -letter A Family Sewing
