CLEARFIELD, PA., MAY 9, 18GO.

6uBjcct to the decision of the Chicago Convention
HON. ANDRE W G. CURTIN.
DEMOCRACY AND SECTIONALISM.
When Wm.H. Seward, a few jears ago, declared
thai there was an "irrepressible conflict" between
Freedom and Slavery, Democratic editors and or
ators, all over the country, made a great ado about
the "treasonable dogma," and while pronouncing
it false, asserted that it was mere Black Republi
can ism as contradistinguished from pure Democ
racy. They also contended that the Republican
was a sectional party that its success depended
eolely on the agitation of the slavery question-
that, on the other hand, the Democratic party was
a JSational organization, opposed to the agitation
of that question, and desirous of protecting the
South in what they are pleased to call her fights.
These assumptions, at lenst those relating to their
own party, we think, the Democracy have them
selves, by the action of their Convention at Charles
ton, clearly disproved. They have practically de
monstrated that there is an "irrepressible conflict"
between the North and South in their own party ;
that sectionalism prevails, in the rankest form, in
their midst; that there is a lack of sincerity in the
professions of friendship tor Southern rights that
have been so frequently made by Democratic poli
ticians at the North ; and that, at least on one im
portant occasion, they have teen guilty of agita
ting the "vexed question." The truth is, . that
heretofore the Northern wing of the Democracy
have always succumbed to the South made con
cession after concession, in order to secure the suc
cees or the party and the spoils of office, until at
last, knowing that with a slave-code plank in their
platform defeat would be certain, they found them
selves compelled to resist her extreme demands ;
oadoing which, the South flies into a passion, re
forts to her usual game of menace, and finally a
large number of her delegates withdraw from the
uuvenuon, ana lorce it to adjourn, after a ten
days' session,' without transacting the principal
business for which it had convened.
This, we believe, is the first time in the history
of politics in thw country, that s National Con
vention has met for the purpose of making a nom
ination and adjourned without making it. Every
other Convention that ever met had suflicient
courage to face the music and do what it was sent
Jo do. The act is without a precedent, and noth
ing but the fact that the party is reduced to the
straits of a sad necessity, could justify it. No par
ty ever before Jelt itself at onco so weak and so
cowardly as this aet shows the Democratic party
to be. It may le good generalship, under the
circumstances ; but it is the generalship begotten
of deep- despair.' It throws upon the Chicago
Convention, which meets this day a-week, the ne
cessity of taking the initiative in the Presidential
campaign. -All that it has to do is to make proper
nominations, and adopt a platform fully up with
the advanced public sentiment of tho day, and
we have no doubt about tha success of its nomi
nees at the election in November.
. Philadelphia Election. The municipal elec
tion took place in Philadelphia on the 1st inst.,
and resulted in tho choice of the candidates of the
Feople's Party. The full . official vote is nearly
seventy-one thousand. The vote for Mayor stood :
Henry, Peo., 36,656; Robbins, Dem., 33,681 Hen
ry's majority, 971. Lex, People's candidate for
fcolicitor, had 1439 maj ; Hamm, do. for Receiver
of Taxed, had 1109 maj.: and Houseman, do. for
Commissioner, had 1702 maj. Hufty. . Teo., is c
lected Controller, by 132 maj.. When we take into
consideration that of late years it has been almost
impossible to re-elect a Mayor in Philadelphia,
the success of Mayor Henry Is a greater victory
than might at first appear.
We have been frequently asked how Hon. John
Covodeoame to have the soubriquet, "(Jlory-to-God,"
attached to his name. He is charged, but
whether correctly or not we cannot say, with hav
ing telegraphed to a friend, when the protracted
contest for the Speakership in 1856 wag ended.
"Glory to God, Banks is ejected." Bo this as it
may, there is no man in the country whom Demo
cratic editors and politicians hate so much as John
Covode, since he is bringing to light the wholcsalo
corruptions of the Buchanan Administration.
To-day the so called '-Constitutional Union Con---rention"
meets at Baltimore There are some
good men in the movement, who are possibly ac
tuated by good motives. We, therefore, withhold
comments until we see the result of its delibera
tions, only premising that we can think of noth
ing that a third party can accomplish except, per
haps, injure the prospects of electing a candidate
for the Presidency who is opposed to the party
which is now misruling the country.
The Washington correspondent of the N. Y. Tri
bune, under date of May 4th, says : "Southern
Senators have determined to manage if possible so
as to keep Kansas out of the Union till after the
Presidential election, lest her vote might exercise
controlling influence in" case the choice should
come to the House. Her admission would make
eighteen States necessary to choose.'
The Homestead Bill. The Grow Homestead
Bill, which passed the House several weeks since,
has been defeated in the Senate by a vote of 22 to
26. Every Republican Senator voted for it. The
Senate will probably pass the Johnson bill, which
is little mere than an apology for a homestead bill,
but whether the House will accept of it or not, is
It seems, from intelligence received by the Can
ada which arrived last Friday, that Ueenan and
Sayers are to fight again. The day is to be fixed
to soon as a surgeon's opinion shall have deter
mined when the injured arm of the British pugi
list will probably be ready for use again.

DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION.
No Nomination Made. .
In our last we gave a brief outline of the
proceedings until Monday. After the rejec
tion of Mr. Butler's substitute, the minority
or Douglas report, was next in order. When
this came to be acted on, the excitement in
creased. An hour or more wad spent in dis
cussing points of order, but finally a vote was
taken upon substituting the minority for the
majority platform, which was carried, the vote
standing 165 yeas to 138 nays. The question
recurring on the adoption of the minority
platform, Mr. Asche, of North Carolina, said
if the minority report was adopted, he would
be compelled to abandon' the Convention, and
disconnect himself from the Democratic party
Mr. Asche's remarks elicited cheers from the
South. Several gentlemen attempted to
speak, but could not be heard for the uproar.
Mr. Butler demanded that the question should
be taken on the resolution affirming the Cin
cinnati platform.. This was agreed to and the
Cincinnati platform adopted by a vote of 233
to 90. . When Mississippi was called, Mr
Glenn arose and voted no, declaring that Mis
sissippi believed the Cincinnati platform, as
explained North and South, was an unqualified
swindle. His voice was drowned in cries of
order. A motion was then made to lay the
balance of the report on the table, which was
lost by a vote of 81 to 183, Alabama, Missis
sippi and Florida declining to vote. The bal
ance of the resolutions were then adopted se
parately, Mississippi, Louisiana,Texas, Florida,
Alabama and three of the Arkansas delegations
declining to vote. A motion was made to recon
sider, but the floor was yielded to Mr. Walker,
of Alabama, who read a statement and protest,
signed by the delegation of that State, giving
their reasons for withdrawing from the Con
vention. The Alabama delegation rose to de
part, when Mr. Barry said the Mississippi de
legation had authorized him to state that they
would also withdraw. The Louisiana, South
Carolina, Texas, Florida, Arkansas, and por
tions of the Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia,
Kentucky, and North Carolina delegations
then also withdrew. Mr. Glenn, of Mississip
pi, delivered, on behalf of that State, a power
ful and exciting address, telling the delegates
that in less than sixty days they will see a un
ited South acting in concert. (Deafening ap
plause ; the galleries joining.) The time will
come when you will want us ! He concluded
by giving notice that all who sympathize with
the retiring States will meet at St.Andrew's Hall
that evening. The Delaware delegates after
wards also left the Convent ion. It was then suz-
gested that, in orderto give the delegates time
to consult, the Convention adjourn until tho
next morning, which was agreed to, after a
continous session of eight hours.
Before the hour of assembling on Tuesday,
tho hall was densely crowded. The whole
forenoon was spent in talk, delegations from
different sections explaining their position and
declaring their determination to stick to the
party in this their time of trial. Mr. Howard,
of Tennessee, offered a resolution sustaining
the Dred Scott Decision, and requiring a two
thirds vote to nominate a candidate. The
latter was carried. The other was lost. Dur
ing the afternoon, the Convention proceeded to
take a ballot for President, which resulted as
follows: Douglas 145 J, Guthrie 36, Dickin
son 7, Lane 6, Hunter 45, Davis 1, Toucey 2,
Pierce 1, Johnson 12. Eleven more ballots
were taken up to the hour of adjournment,
Douglas having raised to 150 1, Guthrie 39 J
and Hunter come down to 38. The seceders,
in the meantime, convened in another part of
the city, selected officers, but concluded to
await the result of the regular Convention be
fore they determined what course they would
pursue if Douglas was nominated, they would
nominate a candidate of their own.
On Wednesday the balloting was renewed
by the regular Convention, and continued un
til fifty-seven had been taken. On the fifty
seventh ballot Douglas had 151 1, Hunter 16,
and Guthrie 65. In the evening, a motion
was made that the Convention adjourn to meet
at Baltimore in June.' The motion was receiv
ed, but not finally acted on until Thursday
morning, when it passed in the following
' Resolved, That when this Convention ad
journs to-day it will be to meet in Baltimore,
on Monday the 18th day of June, in order to
afford States that are not represented, an op
portunity to fill up their delegations.
Tho resolution was adopted by a vote of 195
yeas to 55 nays. So the Democratic National
Convention, without making a nomination,
adjourned after a ten days' session, in order to
arrange their differences, and agree upon some
terms of compromise, if that be possible.
The Howard (Indiana) Tribune says : One
day last week, Levi Sizelove, a resident of
tho eastern part of this county, chopped down
a tree. After it had fallen, he stepped upon
the trunk and walked out toward the top. He
discovered something writhing, and slowly ap
proached it, thinking the tree bad lallcn upon
a pig. What must have been his feelings
when ho discovered that it was his own six
year old girl f There was his child, its head
almost cut entirely apart, one of its eyes lying
on its breast! The lower extremities still
moved, but life had, thus been horribly taken.
The poor man, who is an innocent harmless
being, became frantic, and no wonder. Who
does not sympathize with him ?
A strange accident happened a few days ago
at the coal mine of Maribaye,-at Flemalle
Grande, in Belgium. A man named Thiry
had got on a ladder togreaso the rope used
in drawing up the wooden case called the
basket, when he lost his balance, and fell down
the shaft. When the basket, which was as
cending at the time, came to the surface in a
few minutes after, it contained the body of
the unfortunate man, but without the head,
which in the fall coming against the sharp edge
had been separated from the trunk, and was
afterward found at the bottom of the shaft.
Whenever we bear the advocates of slavery ex
tension asking why a slaveholder has not the right
to carry -his property" wherever he chooses, we
are reminded of the man who tried to fore y.
way into a ball-room, with two pole-cats in a bas
ket and a pound of asafcetida in each pocket, and
when stopped, indignantly inquiring r "Why can't
I carry my property where I pleae ?"

Chester County. A most diabolical out
rage was committed recently on the person of
a Mrs. Riday, a resident of Oxford borough
On the night of the 17th April, the house of
J. S. Biday, the lady's husband, was entered
in his absence,' by two men, doubtless for the
purpose of committing a robbery, which how
ever was prevented by Mrs. R. giving the
alarm and bringing to her aid some of the
neighbors. On the Sunday night following,
about 8 o'clock, while a part of the family
were at church, the same party, it is supposed,
rode to the house, hitched tueir horses, and
rapped at the door. Mrs. Kiday, thinking that
some neighbor was making a friendly call, bade
them "come in" when a stranger entered and
asked her if she knew him. She said No, but
immediately recognized him as being one of
the men who had been in the 'house a few
nights previous. Becoming alarmed, she ran,
halloed and attemped to escape, but the ruf
flan caught her, and in the struggle she tore off
bis shirt collar. This enraged the demon so
much that he kicked her in the side, and
threatened to kill her. He demanded the
candle they had left behind them on the first
night, remarking that it was worth gold to
him. He told her he wouldn't kill her now,but
a she talked the way sae did the other time,
he would. He and his companion then tied
her to a chair, cut off a lock of her hair, and
flourishing the knife before her declared "By
the holy virgin, I'll cut your throat, you d-d
Protestant b !" He found n bottle of ur-
peutine, with which he saturated her clothes
and attempted to set them on fire, but being
woolen they would not burn readily. He also
placed a hot iron plate on her breast, which
was burned to a crisp. Ho fastened her on the
chair with her feet in the stove, and telling
his comrade to "build a fire and burn the d-d
thing up," left her in this position until her
feet were roasted. A signal from his comrade
induced the ruffian to leave the house, when
two small children came down stairs and re
lieveu ineir moiuer. xao screams and cries
of the children up-stairs had alarmed the
neighbors, Mho rushed to the house, broko
open the doors, which remained locked, and
entering found Mrs. Riday had fainted. Med
ical aid was called to her rclief.tut she is still
in a very precarious condition. The only
cause lor this horrible treatment of the woman
seems to be that she had prevented the vil
lains carrying away her husband's property
They said they were not afraid of being de
Cambria Covntt. A little daughter of
Joseph Hildebrand,of Jacksou township, aged
about six years, was burned so badly on Fri
day the 27th ult., under the following circum
stances, as to cause her death the next morn
mr : bhe, together with other children of tho
family, was out in the field with her father
during the afternoon, where be was engaged
n burning brush and other rubbish, prepara
tory to farming, and when he started home in
the evening she remained behind with an el
der brother.about 12 years old. Presently the
fire caught in the stubbles near where the
children were, and completely surrounded
them before they could make their escape
The little girl's clothes took fire from the
names, and were entirely consumed, and her
person horribly and, as it ultimately proved,
iaiany ournea, witn no one near to render as
sistance but her little brother. He managed
to carry her home, where she lingered in ter
rible agony until morniDg.when death grauted
her a kindly relief from her sufferings. The
boy was not much injured by the flames
Mifflin County. An inquest was held on
the 2d inst., by Coroner Milier,on the remains
of a female child found on a field on Henry
Ort's farm in Derry township, which it is sup
posed was brought there from the ridgo by a
dog belonging to tne tenant. Both legs and
one arm had been torn off. It was a large and
health' looking babe, and was no doubt secre
ted on the ridge perhaps alive,perhap3 dead
perhaps murdered by some inhuman being
who had better be in the place of the dead
than living. . . . A man named Adam Brought,
lately an inmate of the Toor House, from
which he escaped and was "taken up and com
mitted to jail, hung himself on Thursday

Crawford Cocntt. On Saturday, the 21st
ult., during a thunderstorm at Meadville, a
Miss Taylor, sister-in-law of Dr. T hompson,
was struck by lightning, while sitting at her
chamber window. She was using a pair of
scissors, and had her hands near together,
when she received s stroke in her hands which
quite paralyzed them. At the same time the
scissors tvere illuminated with electricity.
lhe ringer on the le't hand, which had two
rings on, was blistered under the rings. She
received no permanent injury from the stroke.
Clinton Cocntt. On Monday morning A
pril 29th, a man by the name of Henry Hun
ter was found dead in the privy attached to
the Clinton House, in Lock Haven. Upon an
examination it was proved that the dead man
had been addicted to tha iika nf intn-rivitino-
liquors, and that he resided somewhere- np
the river. It also appeared that he had been
in this place for several days in a state of in
toxication, and bad not been seen since the
Saturday evening previous.

Father CmxiorY. whose secession from the
Catholic Church some time since has attracted
so much attention among Christian people
with his colony, has been received into the
x-resbytery of Chicago cO. S.i Their admis-
sion to this Presbytery has occasioned much
discussion in Presbyterian quarters, owiner to
the fact that they were not required to be bap
tized. The General Assembly ot that branch
of the Church decided in 1845, by a vote of
Kotos, mat Baptism in the Romish Church
is not valid," and the action of the Chicago
Presbytery is severely criticized, and will be a
truitlul theme for contention in the next Gen-
eral Assembly. Chicago Journal.

HON. BENJ. F. WADE.
'Occasional," writing to tho Philadelphia
Press, speaks of Senator Wade, of Ohio, in the
following terms :
"Among the positive men of the Republi
can party there is none deserves more com
mendation than Senator Benjamin Wade, of
Ohio. He is loyed by his friends and respect
ed by his foes. : mere is so much candor and
courage in all bis actions, so much liberality
in bis votes, and such a conscientious adher
ence to his opinions, that I do not wonder to
hear bis name favorably, mentioned in connec
tion with the Presidency. He is, in fact, the
iron man of his party, and many of the Repub
licans delight in drawing comparisons between
him and Old Hickory. He is rough and honest,
has-a way of saying eccentric things putting
into a single sentence a great thought that
shows him to be a man of remarkable energy
and originality. He was the intimate friend
ol Broderick,and ihe other day in conversation
with him, while referring to that lamented pa
triot, his eyes fillea with tears."
Remarkable Ccreof Lockjaw. The New
York Observer says : A young lady ran a rusty
nail into her foot recently. The injury pro
duced lockjaw of such a malignant character
that her physicians pronounced her recovery
hopeless. An old nurse then took her in hand,
and applied pounded beet roots to her foot,
removing them as often as they became dry.
The result was a most complete and astonish
ing cure. Such a simple remedy should be
borne in mind.

LATEST NEWS FROM HARPER'S
FERRY. Brown, the leader of the Insur
rection, found guilty of Murder awl Treason iu
the First degree. The above named 'insurrection'
caused a great deal of gas to be let off by leading
politicians and the political press of this great
country, and in tact, tne majority of the people of
all parties, were more or less excited on reading
the first account of the insurrection some of the
papers trying to make political capital out of the
affair and others making light of the matter. But
if it had been an Italian strike for Freedom a
gainst their lawful sovereign, led on bv Maciinni
or Garibaldi, the Press of this country, with but
one exception, would call meetings and pass reso
lutions ana eohcii, subscriptions to aid them in
their so called patriotic work: but amidst all this
inconsistency there is one man that is not the least
interested in the fate of Brown or his companions,
and that one is Frank Short of the Short Shoe
Shop on Second street, where he will be found at
all times ready and willins to wait upon nersonii
calling on him for anything in the Boot, Shoe or
Gaiter line. Thankful for past favors he only at-ks
a continuance of the same, and will sell aschean
for cash or hides as any other man in the emmtv.

HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS.
It is a fact that, at somn period, every mem
ber of the human family is nuhjoct to disease or
disturbance of the bodily functions ; but, with the
aid of a good tonic and the exercise of plain com
mon sense, they may be able so to regulate the sys
tem as to secure permanent health. In order to ac
complish this desired object, the true course to pur
sue is certainly that which will produce a natural
state of things at the least hazard of vital strength
and life. For this purpose, Lr. Hostetter has in
troduced to this country a preparation bearing his
name, which is not a new medicine, but one that
has been tried for years, giving satisfaction to all
who have used it. The Bitters operate powerfully
nr.n. t I II- . . -
uuu tivmogu, uuncis, mm nver, restoring them
to a healthy and vigorous action, and thun. hv
the simple process of strengthening nature, ena
ble the system to triumph over disease.
For the cure of Dvsueusia. Indigestion. Nansf-n.
Flatulency, Lossof Appetite. or Biliousconiplaints,
aiisiijg ifwui a moruiu inaction oi tne stomach or
Bowels, prod ucinsCramps, Dvsentar v.Cholie.ChoI-
era Morbus, Jfcc, these Bitters have no equal.
Diarrhoea, dysentery or flux, so generally con
tracted by new settlers, and caused principally by
the change of water and diet, will be speedily reg
ulated by a brief use of this preparation. Dyspep
sia, a disease which is probably mora nrevaliit
in all its various forms, than any other, and tha
cause of which may always be attributed to H.
rangements of the digestive organs, can be cured
without fail by using HOSTETTER'S STOMACH
BITTERS, as per directions on tho bottle. For
this disease every physician will recommend Bit
ters of some kind; then why not use an article
known to be infallible ? All nations have their
Bitters, as a preventive of disease and strengthen
erof the system in general; and among them all
there is not to be found a more healthy people
than the Germans, from whom this preparation em
anated, based upon scientific exnerimentu wh;,h
have tended to prove the value of this great pre
paration in the sclo of medical science.
Fkver akd Agce. This trying and provoking
disease, which fixes its relentless grasp on the bo
dy of man, reducing him to a mere shadow in a
short time, and rendering him physically and men
tally useless, can be driven from the body by the
use of HOSTETTER'S RENOWNED BITTER'S.
Further, none of the above-stated diseases ean b
contracted, even in exposed situations, if the Bit
ters are usea as per directions. And as they nei
ther create nausea nor offend the nalatn
der unnecessary any change of diet or interrup
tion ot ordinary pursuits, but promote sound sleep
and healty digestion, and the complaint is remo
ved as speedily as is consistent with tlm nrmin,..
tion of a thorough and permanent cure.
For Persons in Advanced Years, who are suffer
ing from an enfeebled consitution and infirm body,
these Bitters are invaluable as a riatrica r
strength and vigor, and need only be tried to be
appreciated. And to a mother whilo nursin these
Bitters are indispensable, especially where the mo
ther's nourishment is inadequate to the demands
of the child, consequently her strength must yield,
and here it is where a good tonic, such as Hostet
ter s Stomach Bitters, is needed to impart tempo
rary strength and vizor to the r vat em TiAfl inn
should by all means try this remedy for all ca
ses of debility, and, before i o doing, should ask
their physician, who, if he is acquainted with the
virtue of the Stomach Bitters, will recommend
their use in all cases of weakness.
