The Democracy, io Srate Con vention'ai
sembled last week, in ths, nomination of
Col. VV. VV.H. Davis lor Auditor General,
and Lieut. Col. J. P. Lintow for-Surveyor
General, gave os most" excellent ticket;
one more acceptable lo the Democratic party
of tha State of Pennsylvania could not have
been made. Tha nominees are both true
and tried men men of talent, experience
and worth. Tbey have been engaged for
Ihe lest three years and over fighting the
battles of their country, which should be
sufficient evidence ol their patriotism, and
forever siiei.ee the cry of the opposition as
to their diidojalty. Col. Davis was edu
cated at the Military Academy at Norwich,
Vermont ; read law previous to tha Mexi
can war; at tha breaking out of that war,
he entered the service in Col. Cufhlng's reg
iment, and previous to the c losing op of the
campaign was promoted to Captain. He ban
held several very important positions under
the different Democratic administrations.
Wa' have not tha time nor space this week
to extend our article on thia snbject, but in
our next wa will give it more attention.
Tbt Wllliainsport "Democrat" ti. Tec Scb
The astute and wise editor of the Wil
liamport Democrat seems to be enmewha'
exercised over tha Democratic Nob Moun
tain Meeting about being held in this county
and says in his "judgment the pr-jct is
"ill timed and improper " It is insinua.ed
that "young men" are the movers in ihn
meeting and that they are ' essaying to be
leaders in the Democratic party.' This i
iior, in the main, true, although the "young
men" are using their efforts and energies
to make the meeting an entire success.
We can't see how the holding of this meet
ing is going to breed '-fanaticism," (admit
ting that it is contagious,'') or produce any
bad remits. It is in conformity with the old
customs and usages of tha Democratic party
to hold political meetings, and that, too, a
series of meetings, which is proposed to
be dona in this case. The only difference,
the meetings will all be held upon one spot,
the speeches all made from one stand, a:id
the audience sit upon the same seats. This
may look novel in the eyes of some, and
what makes it so is that, after listening to
an afternoon and an evening speech, in
stead of adjourning with "three cheers and
a tiger" aud then going home, it is propos
ed to remain upon the ground until the
next day and listen to several other speech
es, and so on for three days. In doing this,
it is hoped that the Lycomirf j Democracy
may not become in anywUe afflicted with
fanaticism," brought abont from any ef
fects ' produced, by the Democratic Nob
Mountain Meeting. The Democacy of thi
county would not for one moment have it
ihonaht that they would do anything ' jo
ill-fmed and improper" as to rane the
Democratic party of Lyeo.-ninu: county to
o loe one single vote No, not they. Ly
coming needs all her Democratic vote. But
if she polls a lighter vote than was f,ivea
last Fall'don't be so unkind as to charge the
caae lo tba Columbia county people. In
this county we intend to increase the Dem
ocratic majority as well a the vo:e, and tha
holding of Democratic Meetings will greatly
s'reogthen the party. We will do better
than we did lat Fall ; although we polled
a kooJ vo-e then under the circumstances.

It is within the memory oXeven the pres
ent generation that the party which now,
by means ol mock elections, controlled by
the power ol the sword, is dominent in the
Administration, was, within tha memory ot
the very' young , inhabitants, shrieking
through the land the "battle crj of free
dom." Their rallying cries were for "free
soil, free speech, free press" free every
body and everyArng. We know that it all
resulted in a free figld ia-a "freedom"
which finally culminated in the cry 'of
havoc, and in letting slip tha dogs of war
Whatever its original design, it has termi

Resolved, That we, the Democracy of
Pennsylvania, are now, a we always have
been, faithlul to the Union of the Slates, o-
posing the secession of the South wi n all
our influence and having uo.sy mpatny or
association whatever with the party in the

party had prevailed the Union would have

without the slaughter, debt and disgrace ot
a civil war But when the formation of
sectional parties in the Norm and in the
South, and the advent of one of these par
lies into the eean ol power made war a lact
which we could not counteract, we sustain
resoect for our lsal rights and soma -ho
of common honeiv in the manajerne'it ot
our financial affairs, but in both thfe par
ticulars we weredisappointed and betrayed
3. That the Constitution e.-Mahii.ii?d by
our revolutionary fathers is enti.led lo our
unqualified re-pect and obeuience ; the
oath to support is binding, religiously, mor
ally, and legally at ail lime, under all cir
cumstances, and in every part ol the coun
try, upon all public officers, from the high
est to Ihe lowest, as well as upon pr.ivte
citizens ; it is only by a otrict observance ot
its prov'tMors, ar.d a rigid enforcement ol
its obligations' in ail the Stales, that we ca-t
hope lor Union, liberty, r peace He tin
viillnlly violate it or counel violation by
others, is a public enemy and diho;eai
4. That amonn'iha rights gnaranieed lo o
by the plainest words ol t!ieCoiititutiari are
ljtf0lree speech, a free pres freedom
from arbitrary arrest and illegal imprtsou
ment( trial by j'iry the writ of habtxs corpus,
the perfect immunity of all persona not in
the army or navy from any species of pun
ishment for crime or pretended crime which
is not tha legal consequence of a regular
conviction oy an impartial jary the abso
lute subordination of all military power to
tbe civil authority, and the privilege of
while citizens to vote at State elections ac
cording to the law of the State, .
5. That we fully concur with President
Johnson in tbe conviction expressed by
him in 1860, and repeated several times
since, that the- "Federal Government is
sovereign within its proper sphere; that it
acts not through or upon the States but di
rectly upon individuals; that the States
could not absolve the people from iSeir
ledral o:ligatioas; that ttie StAte ordman

such rights as irilmdua among libera hail
legally forfeited by their own acts in the

to tar as we can prevent ii, the resumption
of ibeir proper places in the Union by those
States, some ol whose citizens were lately
in rebellion, 'shall not ba impeded or delay
ed by (he onlawfol interference of that fac
tion at the North which always was hostile
to the Union, which now pronounces it te
gaily di-olved, and which is still malignant
ly laboring to prevent its restoration.
6. Thar tbe effort now making by certain
persons to use the power of the General
Government with a view lo forco negro
suffrage on the Siatea agaiB6t tha will of the
people and conirary to e listing laws is not
only a high crime against, tbe Constitution
bot a deliberate ar.d wicked atteruept to pat
the States, of ibis Union (all of them more or
less and some of them entirely) under ihe
domination of negroes, to atticanize a large
portion of (he country and degrade the whre
rce morally and socially as well as poltti
cally to tha low level of the black. We
will not acknowledge the incapacity of our
own rare i gnver i itself, nor surrender '.he
destinies of the country into the hands, ot
negroes, nor put obrselves under their
guardianship, nor give op to them ibe po
litical prtTua watca w$ laaent Erosa oar
fathers; and we exhort our brethren in other
States to take up the same attitude and
ma intain it firmly.
7. That we will support Preidett Johnson
in every jtnt eff.iri he may make to piace
all the Natrs in their proper position, to
give litem a fair representation in Congress
aud to save inem from the corse of negro
equality. He shall bava our beany appro
val when ha inflicts legal ponishment by
means of legal tribunals upon offenders
against the United States, niid we will be
with him sincerely to sustain and uphold
him in every measure which looks to the
maintenance ol the public credit. Bui our
approval of his adminlr-tration cab be foun
ded only in the beliel that he will execn e
ihe law, the wholt, law and nothing but
the law in ail parts of the country, thai he
will not allow ihe military to inieriere with
slate election: that he will punit-h kidnap
ping and robbery through ihe legal author
ities whether committed by federal officers
or private citizen; and that he will suffer no
person t be murdered by military commis
sion. We go lor meanure not men, and up
on these measure there can be no com pro
nii-e, he that i. noi torus is against a.
8. That in view of our etinrmoub National
debt, the great weight of our Slate taxes and
ihe local burden imposed upon u in divers
via) s. economy aud retrenenment becomes
an important duty ol all our representative;
and lo this end ihe vast standing army now
ou foot ought io be dubaiuled. the navy
should be reduced and the corrupt and ex
travigaut practices lately introduced into the
Government should be totally abolished.
9. That our revenue laws need )o be
carefully revised in such manner, that while
Ihe public credit will be maintained the
national honor preserved, taxation will be
eqoal and just.
10. I hai the gallant soldiers of the Repub
lic, w ho so nobly risked their live in de
fensa of ihe Union and ihe constitution
merit and will receive the undying grati
tnde ol the American people. Living, they
hall live in our warmest affections and,
dying, thbir memories will be cherished for
all lime to come. To say as our political
opponents do that they fought and bled
and died mainly lor the freedom ol the ne
gro, is a gross insult on their patriotism, and
an outrage which will be indignantly resen
ted by fieir surviving comrades through the
11. 'That the noble manner in which the
Democratic pre-s of thi Common wealth,
have contended in defence ol the liberties
of ihe nation, amid trials and difficulties
a I mo." t unparalleled, is deserving of our
grateful recognition and should entitle it to
ihe encouragement ol every CoriBiiluliou
12. That we re-affirm our adherence to
the Monroe Doctrine.
13 That we are in favor of so equalizing
the bounties paid to soldiers in 1861 and
1862. that they shall receive the same pay
and bounty as the soldiers of 1863 and 1S64,
and that Congress should make au appro
priation lor this purpose.
