DEMOCRATS alarm THIS.
The True Press of yesterday morning, EA
an uncalled for, untrue Mad malignant attack
upon President Buchanan and the State Cen
tral Democratic Committee. Mr. Buchanan
is at Bedfoid, a summer resort which he has
probably visited for the last thirty years. His
present visit is made the occasion of a bitter
attack made upon him in the editorial columns
of the True Press, which charges that hie real
object at; Bedford ,is: a political one ; that he
comes for the purpose of "dictating to the
Central Committee" of the State, what shall
be the contents of their address, of saying
who shall, and who shall not, be nominated
for Congress," and "treating the people as
an ignorant herd," which must "submit to the
exactions of pride, arrogance and insolence"
of a " dictator."
The 7rue Press has shown its hand in this
onslaught upon the Democracy. From the
start we have warned our friends that it was
a " snake in the grass," and under the pre
tence of laboring for the good of the people,
was in fact nothing but a sore head Black
Republican organ, supported by a few rich
Republican nabobs who wish that the people
should pay for every thing, while they pay
for nothing. This charge against Mr. Bu
chanan is utterly without foundation. He has
left the seat of Government to avoid all the
excitement of politics and the cares of office.
Worn down and feeble with the discharge of
the duties of his great office, he has seized the
only opportune season of the year to seek at
his favorite resort a renewal of health and
vigor. The more honorable portion of the
opposition press--lill those which are entitled
to the least degree of consideration, have ab
stained from attacking the President daring
the short season when, in a sense, he may be
said to have retired to private life, biat the
sleuth hound instincts which control the True
Press havg sought him out in his retreat for
the purpose of grossly and libelously attack
ing the Democrat of Pennsylvania and the
gentlemen -74202_r_orapc.. -3 loading - commit
tee of organization. We knew that those at.
tacks upon the Democracy would come as soon
as the soreheads which own the Press had as
certained that the Democracy would refuse to
become a pliant tool in their hands, They
had hoped to use us, and that hope failing,
they have declared war upon Democracy.—
What else could be expected from Thomas
Williams & Co. ! "Ye shall know them by
their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns,
or figs of thistles ?"
Tarr True Press attempts to foreshadow
what will be the action of The Democratic
County Convention. It is "an Achan in the
camp." The Democracy will attend to their
own affairs. They are all right on the great
questions of National Policy, and have taken
and will maintain the only correct ground on
the Anti-Tax Question. They do not counsel
to " lawless or revolutionary violence," but
will stand firm in their determination " to put
the public right against fraud, usurpation and
wrong, by legal aud . constitutional recourse
through due form of law."
Good Advice to Farmers
Don't hold over your crops from year to
year. Independent of the loss by waste and
- vermin, the chance of the market is as likely
to be against as in favor of you. To illus
trate the peculiarity of some farmers in this
respect, we may mention a circumstance that
happens quite often in the,extensive dealings
of a 'Western grain merchant. He states that
he bought recently, at G 5 cents per bushel, a
large parcel of wheat that was gathered du
ring the past three years, which included the
identical lot harvested in 1653 and 1856, and
for which he offered last year sl,3slper bushel.

Increase of Business.
Last October the daily receipts of the New
York custom house were from $15,000 to $2O
- and during the following months it in
creased to $30,000, $40,000 and $50,000. At
this time the receipts are said to average
$140,000 a day. This shows that the fall
business is likely to be quite active.

When the thing was new, people used to etop
and look at the oars pass in wonder. Children
delighted to place pebbles on the rails to hear
the rails smash them up. But now no one no
tices them any more than the passage of a back
or dray. Fire engines and all manner of other
vehicles find the tracks a great convenience for
running upon, and use them constantly, so that
if the vote of all the drivers in the city were to
bo now taken, they would unanimously go for
the railroad. Nor do the cars obstruct the free
passage of the street. Each oar takes up only
the room it stands upon, which is not much great
er than that occupied by an omnibus, and it
passes so quickly as to be soon out of the way.

John Sanders, 11. S. A.
The sadden death of Major John Sanders, U.
S. A„ at Fort Delaware, on Thursday last, al
ready announced in this journal, will be sad
news to those who know the man. He was one
of a remarkable family. An ornament to the
United States army, of which he was an officer,
ho was distinguished for genius and scholarship
of the highest order. In the corps of topo
graphical engineers he was conspicuous. Fort
Delaware is a monument of his experience and
care. To him, more than to any other man, is
Philadelphia indebted for the successful manner
in which its insecure foundations have beenlre
paired and fortified, and the work itself pushed
to its present forward state. Major Sanders was
a gentlemen of high character, warm heart, and
great good sense. At the time of his decease he
was looking forward to a brilliant career, and,
until within a few days before his death, was in
excellent health. He was the grandson of the
late celebrated George Nichols, of Kentucky,
son of Lewis Sanders, Esq., of that State, a poi
iAcian of great influence, son-in-law of Hon.
William Wilkins, of Pennsylvania, (Secretary of
War under Mr. Tyler, Minister to Russia ender
General Jackson, and Senator in our last State
Legislature,) and brother of the well known
George N. Sanders, Esq., of New York. We
mourn the loss of Major Sanders as the loss of
an old and devoted friend.

The Original Morgan Horse.
Massachusetts has done many good things,
among which is giving to Vermont the credit,
and the world the benefit, of the celebrated
Morgan horse. Near the elose of the last cen
tury, a singing master, by the name of Justin
Morgan, lived in Chicopee street, West Spring
field. The place where this man lived has been
pointed out to the writer by one who knew him,
and remembers his celebrated horse. Mr. Mor
gan had a few acres of land, and usually kept one
or two horses. He cultivated his farm during
tha summers, and taught music in his own and
the neighboring towns during the winters. In
the spring of 1793 he raised the colt which has
given celebrity to his name. Mr. Morgan had
a passion for good horses, and this oolt, while he
remained in West Springfield, was more fully ap
preciated by his owner than by hie fellow towns
men. In those days fifty dollars was considered
a great price for a horse, and it it believed that
this horse could have been bought for about that
Fortune frowned M
upon Hr. organ, and,
seized with the spirit of adventure, about the
year 1798, he migrated with his family and
horse to the wilds of Randolph, Vt. Here he
lived a few years, and died poor. Neither he
nor his family realized profit from this horse.
Such was the foundation of a breed which has
given both wealth and character to New Eng
land. In this case is forcibly illustrated the in
fluence of an ordinary action. Justin Morgan
might or might not have been consoiotus of the
reunite, when; sixty-five years ago he raised
that famous colt. The act was simple in itself,
but the consequences are momentous. An im•
petus was then given to a branch of industry
whose power is not yet folly felt. Wherever
the horse is known, there shall the name of Jus
tin Morgan be repeated.

D.atti of Major John Sanders.
BALM° E, August Ist, 1858,
I see with deep re rot the announcement of the
decease of Major John Sanders, on the 29th ult., at
I have had twenty years of intimate acquaintance
with him, and from the business and social inter
course that existed between us, I think there wore
but few who know his character better than I did.
I feel it my duty to his memory to state, that I
regarded him as one of the clearest minded, accom
plished, and most efficient officers in the United
States Army. My opinion of his high military at
, tributes are founded on the 01E100MiUMB expressed to
the in his regard by Generals Scott, Taylor and
Worth, with whom he served in the Mexican War.
I conversed with a large number of his brother offi
cers, who were his companions in the lexicon cam•
paign, many of whom knew him well from the time
he entered the Military Academy at West Point, all
of whom spoke in the highest terms as to his natural
and acquired high accomplishments as a civil and
military engineer, as well as a gentleman of extra•
ordinary intellectual and moral merits.
My transactions and social intercourse with him
enables me to know that ho was a gentlemen of ex•
traordinary intellect and unwavering integrity. He
was active, ihdnetrioua, persevering and attentive
to his duties. Hie sense of honor and propriety was
uncommonly acute. His disposition and action to
render justice to ail parties was bold, determined and
efficient. His amiable and exemplary wife has lost
one of the best of husbands. His children have lost
one of the best of fathers. The nation has lost
one of her bravest, most accomplished and most

Consecration of Rev. Dr. BOGLE/W:1.
St. James' Church, Lancaster, has been desig
natod by the Presiding Bishop for the consecra
lion of the Rev. Dr. Bowman to the offiee
Assistant Biehop,but at the suggestion of Bishop
Potter, of his diocese, the interesting ceremoni
al will take place in Christ Church. It would
have been a conree of much regret if these so
lemnities had been celebrated elsewhere, as
-Christ Church, from the many interesting asso
ciations oonneoted with it renders it peculiarily
appropriate for' the consecration of the Assist
ant Bishop elect. It was here that the first Gen
eral Convention of the Episcopal Church, met
to frame a constitution in 1785. Soma seventy
years ago the first diooesan convention assem
bled within its walls. The first ordination in
Pennsylvania was held by piBhop White, in
Christ Chun* !Jay, 1787. At the alter of this
church, Bishop White (the first Bishop of the
diocese) labored faithfully and successfully for
more than half a century. We presume that
these considerations, together with the fact that
Bishop Ondevdonk and Potter, and a goodly
number of other Bishops, have received conse
cration within its ancient walla, induced Bishop
Potter to suggest to the Ecclesiastical Authori
ties having the matter in charge, the great pro
priety of honoring Christ Church with the corn
ing consecration services. The following named

[Prom the Watertown (N, Y.) Journal ]
A paragraph is going the rounds of the papers
relating how a man, named Frazer, was recently
arrested near Baltimore, and committed to the
jail near Moorestown, N. J., from whence he
had escaped when under confinement for coun
terfeiting. The story is touched up with a little
romance concerning a sister of his, who is said
to have struggled hard for a livelihood in her
younger days, but who is now a great lady at
the Court of France—all of which is true.
This Frazer was once a resident of our county.
He came here with Lncien Murat—son of the
illustrious Murat and the beautiful Pauline Bona
parte—nephew of the old and cousin of the pres
ent Emperor. Lucien, assisted by this Frazer
and a French chap, whose name we cannot re
call, undertook to build a " city " on Indian
river, between Evans' Mills and Theresa. This
was some twenty-three years ego. This trio woe
a precious set. Horse racing and cock fighting
were more industriously attended to than legiti
mate business ; still a grist mill, a few shops
and a store were put no, but in the end, went
down under the Sheriff's hammer. Thus began
and ended the great city of "Joachim." The
old mill is still standing as a monument of Lu
cien Mnrat'a failures in thiscoanty. The Wright
who built the mill still holds an expressive me
mento of Lucien in the form of a "promise to
pay," given for eighteen hdndred dollars worth
of labor performed.
After our adventurers left the county, Frazer
went to New York and got rich—Murat went to
Bordentown, N. J., married Frazer's sister, and
remained poor. His wife actually supported
him by Mulling school. Meantime her brother
continued to wax fat and fast. He became no
ted as a genticman of wealth, leisure and pleas
ure, without giving a thought, it is said, to his
poor relatives, who were then under the frowns
of fortune. The throw of the dice box of des
tinies which gave France into the hands of Louis
Napoleon, also gave peace and glory to Lucien
Murat and his very worthy and hard working
wife. He is now ono of the high dignitaries of
the Empire, and ehe is one of the first ladies of
the court. Thus, while the sister occupies the
Elyse() Bourbon at Paris, the brother is awaiting
his sentence to serve in a New Jersey State
Prison. So the " play " goes on.
NARROW ESCAPES —Mrs. Orr mentioned a
narrow escape she had (at the siege of Luoknow)
Bottle time ago. She was sitting on a chair out
side her door, and was in the act of leaning for
ward to pick up something for her child, when
a round shot came in and broke tho chair she
was sitting on without touching her. A gentle
man a fqw days ago, had half his pillow carried
off by around shot whilst he was lying on it and
it did not even awake him. These wonderful es
capes are so frequent here that one hears them
elated without feeling much astonished.—Day

BLAIRSVILLE, August B.—The Hon. John Co
vode was nominated this afternoon for re-election
to Congress by the Republicans.
LOUISVILLE, August 3.—At the election, yes•
terday, the oity proper was carried by the Ameri
cans. The Judge of the Court of Appeals was
elected by two hundred and twenty-eight ma
jority, and the clerk three hundred and seven
majoriiy. The American county officers are
probably elected by small majorities.
As a general things the polls wore quiet. Dr.
Standiford shot Captain Roeaeau dangerously
during a fight. The fight originated partly
from an old grudge, and partly from political
ilmrhave'• lloilend Hitter■
The press of the country has been particularly loud
in the praise of the Bitters. Among the many nth'

"It is a wall known fact that we do not puff pa ‘.

them, but Beerheave's Holland Bitters comes to us

The Philadelphia Argus, in speaking of the fat

into every State in the Union, and Into the Canadian

The exhibition shows testimonials in every language

the late Hon. John M. Clayton, of Delaware."

ARV. —Zip connection for the past dght , years with the
above Insa L l 4l tut:o
course of steady devotion to the Core of Prdnienary Con
sumption and Its kladred diseases, together With my un
rivalled opportunities end advantage of patholoectd research
--Elided net a little. bY-..n, perttet, systepit of 2itedica; rahala..
tion—has enabled the to aarive at a decisive;direct and Bap.
cesefal course of treatment for the positive and radical'cure
of all diseases of the Throat, Lungs, and Air,Parteeges. By
Inhalation, the vapor and curative prOperties of medicines
are directly adressed to the diseased organs and the integu
ment. Ido not advise the use of Medical Inhalation of any
kind, to the exclasion . ofgeneriatirearment; and although I
consider it a useful aditivant in the proper management or
those fearful and often fatal diseases, yet I deem it very no
, emery that each patient should have the benefit of both
gecerel and local treatment. The success of my treatment
in the above diseases, and the 'high character of the Institn.
firm over whiooli I have so long had the honor to preside,are
too well known to need any eulogy or comment from me.
At the solicitation of many private and professional friendB,
through whose philanthropic aid the above charity has bean
long and liberally supported, and after due consideration, I
have concluded to make such arrangements as will bring
al nandy experiments and treatment within the
reach of all, not confine myself, as heretofore, to those
only who entered the Infirmary, or who were able to visit
me at my office. Moping therefore that the arrangement
will give entire satisfaction, both to my professional breth
ren and the public, I- would,respectfaily announce in con
clualon, that /can now be coitsulted personally or by letter,on
ail diseases as above, and that the medicines, the same as
used In the Institution prepared to .suit each individual
case. Inhaling Vapors 'Medical Inhalers, dc, &v., will be
forwarded by express to any part of the United States or
the Oanadas. TZBEB—My terms of treatment by letter are
as follows, viz: $l2 per month for each patient which will
include edicine sufficient for one month's use; also, In
haling Vapor, and an inhaling Apparatus. Payment as fol
lows : $8 to be paid to .Express Agent on receipt of the box
of Medicine, and the balance sfi at the expiration of the
month, if the pail nt be cured or is entirely satisfied with
the treatment. Patients, by giving a full history of their
case, and their symptoms In full, can be treated as wall by
letter as by personal examivation. Patients availing them
soiree of Dr. Jarrett's treatment may rely upon immediate
an 1 permanent relief, as he seldom has to treat a case over
thirty days. Letters for advice promptly aisswerLd. For
