1 The Democratic State Suavcntion-
The harmony . which characterized the
proceeding's of the lata Democratic State
Convention, and the general we miuht
probably say with troth universal satisfae
lion which those proceedings have given, ia
the most auspicious si;?n of the determina
lion of the party to conquer in the coming
Presidential election which has vet occur-
red. It i evidence at least that the Democ
racy 61 Pennsylvania are actuated by a
ingle motive the rescue of the nation
moved by a single purpose its- achieve
ment through the overthrow of the party in
power and the re-establishment of Demo
craiie principles and measures in the ad
ministration of the government. This idea
seems to have governed the late Convention
in all its proceeding ; and if, fortunately,
the same epiril and harmony shall prevail
at Chicago, and the delegates from the dif
ferent States represented there in National
Convention shall return to their respective
homes filled with the determination to
work unceasingly and with confidence for
victory they cannot fait of achieving it.
Tin is oar Jirm conviction. There has been
a favorable change ia public sentiment
within the past year, and the people are
last coming to tbe conclusion thai the n
tiott can only be saved by a change of ad
ministration a political as well as person
al change. , Let a work steadily Democrat
ic friend let us work in lailh speak our
sentiments boldly, pnsh on the colnmr.
bravely, and we shall defeat the Abolition
candidate, whoever he may be, and sue

We have intelligence from Charleston

Os Friday last intelligence reached us of
tbe deaih of Job W. Eigleb, at Clearfield,
in lhi Srdie. He was tbe eldest son of tbe

friends and relatives, who admired and

Oor exchange papers from every direc
tion publish accounts of collisions thai
have taken place between etiizen and sol
diers. Scores of both have been killed and
many more wounded in these disjjracefa!
broils.. One day we have an tccoont of
soldiers forcing open , prison doors and re
teasing the prisoners ; aaain we read of the
"sacking'' of th:s and that hotel or tavern
by soldiers ; then again we are informed
that certain printing offices have been ''gu:
led" by ihee same genitenieu. Riots and
afsanhs are. numerous in all sections o( the
country," and if not rebuked and-checked
by the Mrong arm of the i(overnment, we
will soon witness a state of afiairs that will
eclipse the worst scenes of the French rev
olution. 'It is time something was done to
put a stop to this lawlessness, and it our
rulers refuse to make an effort in this direc
lion the people will be compelled to adopt

Republican editors more than any other
men I iving are responsible for the various
outrages that have been committed by sol
diers. For the last year or morn, the Abo
lition press, when unable to answer the sol
id arguments of Democratic editors, would
bristle up, and, as a kind of intimidating
threat to Democrats, yelp from their ken
nels just vait till the soldiers come home;"
thus intimating that our brave soldiers,
when at home, could do as they pleased,
and set law and order and decency at uefi
ance, and set le their private grief by brute
force, it was an invitation to the soldiers
to perjnre themselves by violatiti the oah
they had taken when 'hey enli-ted. It was
asking the soldiers to commit lawless act,
and thus disgrace themselves and their uni
forms. Not lung since a pompous Major
General, during the delivery oi an Aboli
tion, negro-equality speech, used thete
words "Wait till the soldiers come home
they will settle accounts with the copper
hestfs " What was this but an invitation
to Republican soldiers to commit murder
and aron The Major General who couM
thus incite soldiers to acts of violence shod
have his straps torn from his shonlders.
Bui yet the man who made these remarks
stands high in the administration circles
It is not often that a true soldier will be
guilty of a dithonorable act, lor he raspects
the uniform he wean and the oath he has
taken ; but sometimes it has happened that
the more ignorant of them have, by taking
a hint from bad advisers,, degraded them
selves, by committing unlawful and infa
mons acts. ..Their advisers, then, and not
tbe soldiers, are the more guiliy parties
and tgauisl them public opinion should be
directed and the finger of scorn pointed
Soldiers we repeal, will not be guilty, of
low and disgraceful acts, provided they are
not tampered with by the liars and coward
who attempt to use them for their own dev
ilish purposes. -

Our community has been most terribly and

BormiiD to Death. On Friday evening
lart, three raftsmen from Cameron county,
were lying with their raft in ihe West
Branch of the Susquehanna river, opposite
Northumberland, and after having spent a
part of the evening in the borough of Nor
thomberland, they went back to their raft,
built a fire in their cabin, made a straw bed
near the stove, and laid down to lake a
night's rest. About midnight the straw
caught on -fire and consumed the entire
cabin. The unfortunate men no: awakening
until one of them was burned to death, his
feet and legs being burned up to his
knees, and his bands and arms up to his
elbows. He was buried in Northumberland
after the Coroner's Inquest was held. The
other two, though dangerously bnrned. are

was at home last October, during which

Major Gkneral Johv C. Frcmost is
causing quiie a good deal of fluttering in
the Abolition ranks, in relation to the next
candidate for the Presidency, in that party.
Mr. Lincoln and friends are fearful of Fre
mont and his party. Fremont has already
secured the influence of Horace Greele) 's
Tribune and several other papers of like
Abolition notorie'y. The German element
of that party is also doing service for the
Rocky Mountain boy and Wooly Horse.
Abraham Lincoln is destined to be shelved,

We have been having a great deal of

keeping the roads as much unsettled as they
are with the army of the Polom?c. This is

had three days stormy weather. The Month
of March was a very rough, open month ;
hard on the winter grain; making it look
more discouraging than it has for several
years past at this period of the season ; yet

quite a large representation Irom the Blooms

The action of the late Democratic State
Convention iut suits the country. It has
fairly taken all the wind out of the Repub
lican sails. The entire proceedings were
such as to give our enemies no chance
whatever to misrepresent the Democratic
pariy. The resolu:ions, not much over a
square, are pointed and to the purpose; not
attempting to settle or discuss matters which
properly belong to the National Chicago
Convention, which will astemble on the
4th of July next. Everything that was done
was characterized with thai harmony and
good feeling rarely found in Conventions
composed of so many different beads.
Upon the whole, we view it as an indica
tion of an early return of those better days,
while we lived, and the country prospered,

Thr Emperor ol France pays his soldiers

Tha! is more than our government does.
It pays its soldiers in depreciated paper
paper that is worth 35 per cent, less than
gold. The government has a large amount
of gold on bacd, but instead of paying it
out to the soldiers, sells it to tbe speculators
in Wall street at a great premium! The
gold is for the borders of 5-20 bonds and for
speculators, while the army is obliged to
take depreciated paper.
The New York World, of Saturday, says :
The shiftless expedients of onr honorable
Secretary of '.he Treasury in regard to the
price of gold have killed the export trade
of the port. Tbe fluctuations in tbe official
price lor gold certificates are not to be ac
counted for on aoy known principle of fi
nance, and are in opposition lo common
sense. The greatest gambler in the price
of gold is the Treasury Department. The
export trade of the port, and the remittan
ces of government bonds to Europe, are
brought to a standstill by the injudicious fi
nancial measures of the government.
Labor and Idleness. Notwithstanding
that mechar.ical labor in Washington city
commands from three to four dollars per
day, the city is overrun by a set of stout
armed and sturdy aspirants for place, who
will take a low grade clerkship worth J?60
per annum, or even a watchrran's si:uat'nn
raiher than earn more money by honest toil
The Government should make it a necessa
ry recommendation to appointments to civil
office, that the applicant should serve at
least three years in the army. That would
empty Washington of office-beggers, if it
did not fill the ranks of the army.
"The Union as it Was." The use of thi
simple phrae has been Ihe course of much
abuse of the Democratic party by Abolition
ists. They have probably forgotten that it
was made the occasion of three cheers at
the reception of President Lincoln at Pitts
burgh, while on his way to Washington.
Men are no w called traitors for advocating
"the Union as it was."
A Colambut correspondent of the Cleve
land Plain Dealer says the result of the
Ohio Democratic Convention was a signal
triumph for the M'Clellao element, and that
