The Jacksoa Celebration.
The eighty-ninth anniversary of American
. Independence was celebrated, by the peo
ple of Columbia coont, in Jackson twp , in
an appropriate and magnificent manner.
Four year of oppression by the Executive
. of the United States, a large amount of
which was centred opon the patriots of
Columbia, taught us to appreciate and love
the sentiment expressed in, the Declaration
of Independence. Early in the day a large
concourse ot people bad assembled at
Rohrsbnrg, where a procession was formed
and procedsd to the Grove The proces
sion was estimated by competent judges to
be at least two miles in length.
At 10 o'clock, A. M., the meeting wa9

polls and deposit his vote, along side of the

choice, for office. When yon extend the

This our loyal Black Republican neighbors
arc advocating. Their journal ol this place
enlisted in the cause of negro suffrage,
and is, to a certain extent, wheeling a por
tion of the Republican party into that negro
policy. Thebetter portion of that party are
not willing to degrade themselves so much
in to support a measure calculated to place

with them without any training or educa

the result of which would bo the extinction

It is well said that the 4th of July will be
long remembered by the Democracy of'the
cityol Hairisberg. The Democracy turned
oni inbeir might, having fully determined
that the Fourth should be celebrated as our
fathers celebrated it. Such au out pouring
of people to a Democratic celabralion was
.never befora witnessed iri that cry. The
rich and poor, did and young, all joined in
making the day one of merriment and glad
ness. The placs selected for the holding of
the celebration, was in Hoffman Grove,
situate two and a half miles from the city.
Ftee transportation was procured over the
Pennsylvania R. R., which passes close by
the Giove. The Patriot If Union in its re
port of the celebration, says:
The first trail started at 8 A. M., and as
it pulled out with its mass of living Irelght.
there remained sufficient to fill another
train, but it was impossible to start one un
til 10 o'clock. This train was also densely
crowded. Hundreds were txiable to obtain
standing room. '
The 11.30 train was even more crowded
than the others, the rush being so great.'
This was the last train advertised, but as
thousands of people were unable to get on
board, an extra train was secured. A rush
wa made (or this, and, before five minutes'
time had elapsed, not a spare inch on board
could be obtained. The morning trains
from LeboDon ;ind Cumberland counties
brought hundreds of people, who hastened
to the grounds either by designated trains
running thereto, or by private conveyance.
Nor was this all; every livery horse, every
DacK, ana every tesm eveu to oyster carts
and express wagons were engaged in car
rying the multifile to the grounds. Hun
dreds of people were unable to obtain trans
portation in any way, consequently they
were obliged to walk the long distance.
The Pennsylvania Railroad Co. carried out
their arrangements to perfection. Through
the kindness and liberality of the oblizins
Superintendent at this point, Colonel S. D
Young, the Committee obtained an extra
train, and had there been another available
car in the depot or" within a reasonable dis
tance ot this place, Colonel Young would
have cheerfully given it. As it was, no one
ever expected such a rush, and we have
great cause to be thankful that no accident
occurred in running to and from -the woods.
The arrangement in the -woods was ad
mirable. In the southern end was erected
the stand lor the meeting: It was beauti
fully decorated. Over the front was a large
painted device of the Goddess of Liberty.
The meeting was organized by the ap
pointment of David Hiatus, Esq., President,
and a large number of persons Vice Presi
dents. After the meeting came to order the
the Rev. Daniel Gains, of Norristoyn, was
introduced and offered op an impressive
and beautiful prayer.
The Declaration of Independence was
then read, with much force and eloquence,
by Robert L. Muench, Esq , after which
Col. Charles J. B idele, was introduced
amid great applause ; who then proceeded
to deliver the Oration of the day, which
was listened to with a great deal of interest.
Col. Biudle is a fine speaker, and sound
Democrat. Wo intend, as soon as our
space will admit, to publish bis adJres?.
After the address was delivered John A.
Biglek, read a large number of regular and
volunteer toasts, some of thorn causing
great applause and enthusiasm.
The soldiers of Hanisburg were
this celebration en masse. Old officers and
bronzed veterans joined hands with the De
mocracy in celebrating this day. At the
reading of each good otd Democratic toast
they loudly cheered, and evinced their grat
ification in more than one way. The De
mocracy are the hue friends of the soldiers.
In speaking of "the other celebration ao-
called 'citizens',' 'irrespective of party' cel
ebration," the Patriot Sr Union, says :
The office holders' and contractors' pro
cession yesterday was a notable fizzle, al
though it bad been puffed and advertised
most extensively for a week or more by
tvery species of clap-trap known to the
Hessian and its speculating managers. It
was composed as follows, literally : First a
squad of army officers, holding commis
sions, on horseback ; then two vehicles
containing four contractors, or something of
that sort; then two companies of Invalids;
then a batterry ol artillery ; then two om
nibuses containing a few soldiers out of the
hospital ; then tie "fire department," ag
gregating not qnite a hundred persons
each company represented by from six lo
twenty men the apparatus drawn by hired
horses; then two advertising wagons ; and
then five bnggies and carriages containing
office-holders, contractors, etc. the last be
ing a spring Wagon. The "grand" affair
was just three minutes and five seconds
passing a given point, except when getting
round a corner, at which time it took full
five minutes to ge: beyond the peint. The
"pagear.t" moved slowly. A noteworthy
feature of the thing was the route, which
was laid off in a great number of right an
gled triangles. Scarcely bad the tail got
round one corner until the head turned
another. The route was certainly an intri
cate piece of surveying, and we could not
help commending the "rrenius" of the
shoddyiie who 60 cleverly solved the prob
lem ot how to pass in review before
Cameron's residence and yet avoid Cortin's.
There was not a single discharged soldier
in line ; not a citizen or 6tranger on horse
back or a loot; not a secret society ; not a
trade union ; not a delegation from any
where: not a single person or thing more
than above slated This msy be considered
as lit lerminatiD i to a celebration, ad ver
lisad as a "Union,",a "Citizecs'," a "Peo
ple's" celebration, only to be turned to the
oses of the radical shoddy clique. It was
amusing to see the mottoes. One read
"Glory to God." Over the speakers' stand
were: "Our martyred President," and "Our
Trust is in the Lord" Lord being spelled
very biff, denoting how largely Shoddy trust
ed ia that direction.
The Luzerne Union, published by Col. M.
Hannum, and by the way one of the very
best Democratic pipers of the Stale, says:
We have associatsd with ns in its publica
tion, Walter H. Hibb, Esq., formerly edit
or of the Carbon Democrat, with whom many
of our readers are already favorbly acquain
ted- He is a sterling Democrat, a worthy
young man, and one of the best printers in

The Fori Mifflin. Prisoner and llie'JBeiitoa
All the political prisoners from this coun
ty have been allowed to return home We
had the pleasure of meeting many of these
.persecuted individuals during the earlier
pari of this week, and notwithstanding they
have fuffered iu health, as well as in their
business relations, they have borne np well
under the severe afflictions through which
they have parsed".- It wcruid seem that a
terrible retribution is overtaking some of
those who were mainly instrumental in
IfaTing them arrested. We learn that one
individual, who, upon learning that these
men were about being released lrom dor
ranee vile, and feaiing for bis personal
stfety, enlisted. Shortly alter entering the
service, he bad hi right arm shot away,
and is row lying in one of ihe Military
Hospital constantly attended by a son of the
very man ht was instrumental in having ar
rested! How worse than tie loss of an arm,
must be his torment under thece circum
stances; And not this alone. His family
were obliged to rely upon the assistance of
their democratic neighbors to put out his
crops, after having been denied by their
Republican friends. Verily, the magna
nimity of these men, must lead him to ex
claim, "my punishment is greater than I
can bear." Berwick Gazette.
On the 17th of May last, the above state
ment of facts appeared in the columns of
our paper, wiih proper credit. We believed,
at Ihe lime, that every word ol it was true,
and have not heard or Been anything since,
to change our mind on that subject. But it
would seem that a pack of Abolitionists, in
and about Benton, are disposed to squirm
and wriszle, like a sement with its tail
piuched, and have appeared in the Repvbli'
can with an article denying the truthfulness
of our statement, in relation to Ihe Fort
Mifflin victims, together with a (ew facts
concerning a certain individual, of Benton
township, who was instrumental in having
his Democratio neighbors arrested, after
which he left the county and joined Ihe
army. The person alluded to is Mr. Rich
ard Stiles, who is well known in the coun
J particular ly the upper end. We sincerely
sympathize with him and his friends in the
loss of his fight arm, and all deprivations
and hardships sustained In the army, but
politically, and for the treatment towards bis
Democratic neighbors, we shall ever con
tinue to hold him in the same regard as we
did prior to his showing his patriotism by
entering the army more through fear and
dread than for the love of it.
The first fact denied by these home pa
triots is the statement that Mr. Stiles was
"attended by a son of the very man he was
instrumental in having arrested." The party
are generous enough, though, to admit that
the young man alluded to was "employed
as cook in ward No. 4" of the came hospital
in which Mr Stiles lay, although they say
Mr S. occupied Ward No. 7. Now, the
fact, of the business is, we were correct
when we stated that Mr. S. was attended by
a son of one of the men he was instrumen
tal in having arrested, and we are informed
that be wrote lo his family acknowledging
the fact that this son waited upon him, and
alluded lo the little incident in the kindliesl
terms. Besides tkey admit that, he cocked in
the Ihpital. Of courso, this s in no man
ner waiting npon any p?rson, we cook for
him ! Oh no ! So much for the first con
tradiction by the stay-at-homes of Benton.
Ihe second and most serious objection
found in cur articlejs that Mr. Stiles' -'fara
ily were obliged to rely upon the assistance
of their Democratic neighbors to put out
his crops after having been denied by their
Republican friends.." In this relation we
have only to say that we were entirely cor
rect ; and that neither of the eight Loyalists
ol Benton pave her any assistance what
ever, but ih jt la crop$ were put out by his
Democratic neighbors. .Further, that this
same loyal Menpenhall: who allows bis
name to be attached to the card in the Be
publican, accusing us of falsely misrepre
senting facts, has also been obliged to re
ceive assistance from his Democratic neigh
bors, in the way of potting out his crops ;
while it is alleged, that he, too, was very
'officious in the matter of the arrest of the
'Fishingcreek Conspirators as they were
called." How must be bis feelings under
such circumstances ? Does his conscience
not bother him, or has it become so hard
ened that he cor.Id lend bis poor assistance,
if need be, to drag off his Democratic neigh
bors, and thus harrass and torment, yea mur
der them, ty throwing thejn in a far off filthy,
sickly bastile, for nothing more than simply
opinion's sake ? as all' history in the matter
will clearly attest. Yet this same MxNDEn
hall talks about rendering assistance, fur
nishing substantial comforts of life, &c. !
As lo throwing the responsibility upon us
for getting those people "up the creek' into
difficulty, we have only to refer these Loy
alists to the "card" published in another
column of to-day's paper, signed by the
subjects of the "Colombia County Inva
sion," save one, William E. Robberts, for
the termination of -whose lile they are
chargeable, which is sufficient to forever
silence all but fools and fanatics and we
might add, lineal descendants of lories I
In conclusion, we will aiate, and we
know we will be endorsed by all right
minded, conservative and patriotic people,
that had it not been for those lying, wilful
scoundrels, (ihe signers of the "card" in the
Republican not excluded), misrepresenting
la the authorities at Washington and Har
risburg, the feelings and sentiments in rela
tion to the war, ia this county, those people
"np the creek" would have never been sub
jected to the imprisonment, expense and
suffering they so unjustly and patiently
bore, and Mr. Stiles would have continued,
in all probabilities, to enjoy the blessings
and comforts of home, with the full use ol
his right as well as left arm.
Nkwspapkr Change. We notice in the
last No. of the Constitutional Advocate, pub
lished at Ashland, Schuylkill county, that
A. B. Tate, of this place, has become one
of its edilorSjMr. S. Necvahl retiring. The
paper is .now edited and published by Tatb
& McGin Lk.T. The Advocate ranked along
with the best Democratic papers of the Stale
and with, the present arrangement we' have
no reason to believe otherwise than that it
will maintain its former proud position in
the Democratic ranks. Success to them.

For th Star of the North,
A Musical flambD!
If it is not generally known,T wih it to
be distinctly understood, that one Bennett,
a rode, ignorant, unprincipled, boorish
gentleman, from the wooden nutmeg coun
try, is now stopping in Bloomsbuig ; gen
erally known as a riaao and Melo'eon
agent, but more properly a musical hum
bug; and thus declaring in the streets : l'lf
ever I hear tell of a copperhead saying any
thing in my favor, I'll regard it as an insult
and knock him. into Eternity the first time 1
This guilt-sick falsifier is perfectly safe
in making this assertion among people who
know him, and especially Democrats, who
tell the truth in all thing. But in his case,
so far as we are able to learn, all parlies
agree in the correctness of this, that Ben
nett is enviable lo no man nor race of men;
and that nothing favorable can be truthful'
ly said of him. Fellow Democrats, fear
ins that some compassionate one among
you may pronounce on word iu his favor,
I caution you to beware of this monstrous
biped ; for who among us has any desire
to be thrust into futurity without a mo
ments warning. He is not only monstrous
in size and strength, but of such far-famed
courage and undaunted heroism as to cause
his fellow-men to tremble and become as
tonished on hearing of his magnanimous
threats which, we are glad to relate, have
never been known, in one instance to be
cairied into execution. What I have to
fear for yon and thus causes me to warn
you, is that if he should be confronted by
one of you, yoa could not withstand the
scene which will present itself at that time
of the palor which will overspread his fair
brow, the flashing of his small twinkling
orbs the gnashing of bis tnsky teeth the
shaking and trembling of his lower ex
tremelies and his sudden transition into
the garret of the Exchange Hotel, where be
wdl remain till his fear of meeting a
Democrat partially subsides. These are
the acts of bravery which characterize this
renowned, eminent and loyal humbug.
His endeavors to monopolize all conver
sa'ion, by narrating ihe wondeiful exploi's
which he has performed, the prodigies of
valor of which he has been the hero, the
wonderful escapes of which he has been
the subject and his numerous adventures,
in which he was always the principal actor,
which were so perfectly astounding, have
never failed to remind me of a story told
some lime ago in a railroad car, which I
will attach for the special benefit and edi
fications of our braggart hero. A certain
braggadocia bad been making himself con
spicuous when an old gentleman, with a
solemn visage, and an ivory-headed cane
sitting in the back corner of the car ex
claimed : "That last adventure of yours,
young friend, is a very extraordinary one
very extraordinary indeed. One could hard
ly believejt without having seen it. I didn't
see it ; but I can relate a circumstance
which happened . in my family, and in
which I was for a time deeply interested,
which is almost as remarkable and I be
lieve quite as true.
''Will yon hear it?" "Certainly," said
braggadocia, "I shall be very glad lo bear it."
"Give it to us ! give it to us !" echoed the
whole company, getting an inkling from
the solemn phiz of the old gentleman that
something rich was in the wind.
"Well, sir," con-tinned the narrator, "the
circumstance lo which I alluded is this :
My father had three children. He had an
only brother, who had aUo threo children.
My grand father had left my father and my
uncle a large estate, in the executorship of
which a quarrel broke out, which grew
more and more bitter, until al length the aid
ol the law was invoked, and many years of
violent litigation ensued, aad during all of
which time the coUs of the proceedings
were gradually eating up the estate. My
father and uncle saw ibis, and though bitter
enemies, tbey had too much sense to bite
each his own nose off.v They were chival
rous and brave men, almost as much,
profr&bly, as yourself, sir. (addressing the
daring gentleman aforesaid.) and they de
termined lo 'fight it out among themselves'
as the saying is, and thus keep the money
in the family. Well, sir, my father made
this proposition to my uncle, to wit : that
the three sons of each, in the order of their
age, should settle ihe disputed question on
the field of honor ; the majority of the sur
vivors to decide the affirmative. It was
readily acceded to. My eldest brother went
out on the appointed day, and at the first
ffre he fell dead upon the turf. My next
eldest brother took his station at ouce, and
at the second fire, shot my next eldest
cousin through the lungs, and he never
drew a whole breath afterwards."
Here the old gentleman's emotion was so
great that he paused a moment as if to col
lect himself. Presently he proceded : ' It
now became my turn to take the stand ;
and upon me rested the hopes of my fam
ily. I can truly say, that it was not so much
fear that made my hand tremble and my
pistol to waver ; it was the deep sense of
responsibility that rested upon me. We took
our places a simultaneous discharge was a
moment alter beard and, and "
Here the narrator put his handkerchief to
his face, and seemed to 6hake with irre
"Well, sir," exclaimed braggadocio, who
had listened to the narrative with almost
breathless attention, "Well, sir well?
what was the result ? How did it end ?"
"J was shot dead the very first fire," replied
the old gentleman ; the property passed in
to the hands of my uncle and his family ;
and my survivihz brother has been poor as
a rat ever since !"
I hope this anecdote will not be lost upon
Mr. Bennett, that he will peruse and digest
it that he may become wiseja future.
The Public Debt. Some of the New
York papers proposes paying off Ihe public
debt by subscription. The Maysville (Ky.)
Bulletin, says ; "Abetter way of discharg
ing our public debt, would be to compel ihe
National Banks to surrender the interest
they have made opon the businessthey have
done since their establishment, they have
wrung millions from the public by loaning
the national credit, without risking a dollar,
and drawn interest at the same time, from
the public Treasury, opon the bonds depos
ited as their capital. The whole system is
a stupendous swindle, and it would be a
righteous retribution if tbey conld be made
to relieve the burdens of an overtaked peo
ple, by surrendering their profits to pay the
national debt." These banks not only live
upon the government and the public, but
tbey are exempt from paying any portion of
the taxes. Republicanism takes care of the

his having married one of our 'printer boys',
Mr. S. Bruce Coleman, cf this place. He
was a minj6ter of great eminence and aoil

It will be recollected that about ihe first
of May last, a negro attempted to shoot a
white soldier on Capitol Hill, Harrisburg,
for seme remark made as he was passing the
negro, who was sitting with a while girl in
the Capitol ground. The negro was arrested
at that time on a charge of attempt to kill,
but the Union Leaguers procured his en
largement on straw bait.
This same darkey, last. Monday night,
was discovered in the dwelling house of
William Kline, a Justice of the Peace of
Harrisburg, concealed under a bed occupy
ed by a Mrs. Eakin, who while at her de
votions, hearing a noise under her bed, was
led to examine, and there, crouching like
some wild beast, lay the negro, waiting for
bis victim. The alarm was given, and the
black villain was arrested by officer Camp
bell while yet under the bed of Mrs. Eakin,
and taken before the Mayor. Not satisfied
with shooting white soldiers, but he must
attempt to commit atrocious acts upon white
women. Where are (he Unien Leazuert?
He needs more bail !
High Prices. Well-founded complain! is
made that there has not been a fall in the
price' of provisions at all commensurate
with tie fall of gold. When the price of
gold falls, everything else should fall with
it. This, however, i6 not Ihe case. Provis
ions are almost as high now as ever. Meat,
for example, is retailed at as high a price
as when gold was quoted at 2,85. It is the
same with many other articles. This
is nothing but a swindle,, and some
means should be taken to prevent it. The
public are grossly imposed upon by specu
lators. The people have contributed their
blood and their money to purchase peace,
and now (hat they have obtained it, they are
entitled to one, at least, of the blessings it
bhould bring low prices of the necessaries
A Black Editor's Opinion. The Black
Republican ia a newspaper in New Orleans,
edited by a colored man (a clergyman),
who, it would seem, from the following,
does not think that regeneration of his breth
ren is to be accomplished by voting and
"The colored man and the white man
cannot live together in this country ; they
must, and will have to seperate, unless the
Congress of the nation will give them a
place for themselves, for as it was with
Abraham and Lot, so it is with us, and the
s ooner we seek a home for our rising gene
ration, the better it will be for ns.
Our final destiny, so far as I can dimly
see, is that in three hundred years it will be
a rare thing to see a colored man in this
country. Liko the Indian, our race is des
tined to become extinct in this country,
unless we move to ourselves."
Scddkn Death. We regret to learn that
Mr. William Hoffman, an aged and respect
able citizen of Center township, this county,
died very suddenly en Tuesday evening last.
He bad been engaged in harvesting during
the day, and lingered behind the rest of the
field hand as they wended their way home
ward in the evening. Not arriving for some
time, one of his sons started out to meet
hiJi. He found him lying dead, by the
roadsido. It was supposed by some that be
was struck by lightning, as there was a
thunder storm prevailing at the time.
A rascally agent of ihe "JAmerican Protest
ant Union Missionary Society" is out in
Clearfield county preaching that ihe next
war is to be between Protestantism and
Catholicism. He declared ihat there was a
secret society in Rome, ready to strike "al
the proper moment." If a Catholic should
go about the country giving vent to such
devilishness how long would be be without
a minted coat of tar and feathers? Those
who preach war between, religious sects
have no religion they are devils let loose
upon earth to curse it.
