,:. HARD BUN. '
The ntter impotence and paralysis Into which
the once proud and powerful Democratic par
ty has fallen, is evinced in many ways, but in
none more strikingly than in the character of
its falsehoods. Who does not remember what
calumnies were heaped upon Clay and Harri
son, upon Seward and Fremont great, heavy,
black lies that bad venom and sting in them t
But their stock in trade has run down very
low, and now they are dealing out little, con
temptible, picayune absurdities and notions!
In the two months that have elapsed since the
Republican National Convention met at Chica
go, although every exertion has been made,
they have not been able to trump up any more
serious accusation against Mr. Lincoln than a
foolish story that he had three pairs of boots
charged to the Contingent Fund of the House
wbilo he was a Member of Congress but when
the stationery account came to be examined
by the clerk, no such item could be found
charged to "honest old Abe," and so the
Democratic editors have been forced to back
square out of it, leaving no defamatory fable
In circulation but the miserable invention that
he had voted against furnishing supplies to our
Army in Mexico during the late war. ' To show
up this absurd fabrication, which Joe Lane,
the Seccders' candidate for Vice President,
repeated at a Breckinridge ratification meet
ing in Philadelphia, we need only copy an ex
tract from a speech delivered by the "little
giant" in the Illinois Senatorial canvass . of
18-58..'. Io that speech Mr. Douglas said : :
"I never charged him LincolD with voting
against the supplies, in my life, because 1
know that he was not in Congress when they were
voted. The war was commenced on the 13th
day of May, 1846, and on that day wo appro
priated in Congress ten millions of dollars and
fifty thousand men to prosecute it. - During
the same session we voted more men and more
money, so that, by the time Mr. Lincoln en
tered Congress, we had enough men and e
nough money to carry on the war, and had no
occasion to vote for any more." ;
The deceiit men in the Democratic, party
long ago abandoned this stale and paltry lie a
gainst Lincoln none but the most reckless
and unscrupulous man would repeat a false
hood which has been so thoroughly exploded,
and to do so only shows how hard run the or
ators and editors of that party arc at this time.
Kefc3E3 to SUPPORT it. lion. Richard
Vaux, who heads the Democratic Electoral
ticket in this state, has written a reply to the
chairman of the Stato Central Committee, in
which he refuses to approve the compromise
plan proposed by that committee, and declines
to sign a pledge in its favor. , He says that he
considers himself under no obligations to
comply with the demands of that organization
and that, if elected, be will conceive it to be
bis duty to vote for Douglas and Johnson
and for no other candidates.
Ocr County Convention. We trust that
our friends throughout the county will proper
ly consider the call published last week, and
sec that there is a good turn-out to the Con
vention. We hope to see every district rep
resented. : The up-river townships will all have
delegates here, and wo trust thoso down the
river will be here in full force also. Though
our prospects are growing brighter every day,
it behooves every well-wisher of the party to
bo on the alert and take part in the activo la
bo s oi the campaign. "
Organjiijjo. Wo aro pleased to hear thai
the friends of Lincoln, Hamlin and Curtin aro
organizing and forming "Wide-Awake Clubs"
in some parts of our county. We understand
Chat two e'ubs have been formed in Guclich
township, one in Curwensville ona in Burn-
side township, and that several more in other
districts are about being orgauized. ' This is
right. Let the good work go on, so that we
may soon hear of clubs being formed in every
township. Favorable results are always the
effect of organization." "
The Union will probably survive the success
of Lincoln and Hamlin. Mr. Robert C. Scott
said In the . Richmond ' Convention that Mrl
beward , was a statesman, a plain, ; honest out
spoken man, who meant, what ho said, and
mereiore was infinitely : to. bo preferred to
DougUs,' who equivocated, mystified, and de
ceived.". Mr. Scott .belongs to the class that
has already declared that the Union could not
enduro the election of Seward.
One evening last week President Buchanan,
on the occasion" of a serenade given him at the
Wbito House, made a regular ttump speech
in favor of Breckinridge and Lane.. It is the
first address of this character that has ever is
sued from, trio portals of the Presidential man
sion, and it is to bo hoped, for tho honor of
the country, that it will be the last. .

Meagre as the telegraphic abstract of the
new by the Arabia .is, it yet conveys assur
ance that the movement for Italian indepen
dence goes hopefully onward. Garibaldi aims
at freedom for all Italy, and, therefore, wise
ly wastes do more of his strength in Sicily,
but prepares to move upon the mainland.
But, as in Sicily, so in Naples, his chances of
success depend greatly on the enthusiasm and
firm bearing of his friends within ; and upon
these it seems that he can count surely. Nat
urally excited by the news of the success of
the revolution in Sicily, and burning with the
memory of years of tyranny, and of recent
outrages, the Neapolitans aro upon the point
of rebellion, and the Central Revolutionary
committee had even dared to issue a procla
mation calling upon the people to rise. To
meet this condition of things, the King had
on the one hand proclaimed the city In a state
of siege, and on the other granted the quasi
liberal constitution, which would have saved
bis crown six moths ago, and inaugurated the
tri color fag as that of the nation. The later
succeedaneums will fail of their object. What
was beyond hope before will be rejected now
with scorn silent, if not expressed. . As to
the former, it is a cheering sign for Garibaldi.
Threatened men live long ; and cities placed
under martial law are generally in a condition
for which martial law is no cure. If it be dif
ficult for the tyrant of Naples to control his
capital itself, what can be do when Garibaldi
thunders at his gates ? for be there he will,
by hook or by crook in spite of the Neapoli
tan fleet. There has ro announcement more
favorable to Italian liberty been made than
this of the extreme measures adopted at Na
ples. For if the Neapolitans be in earnest as
it seems they are, the severity of the restric
tion will but make the outburst the more over
whelming when it comes. It will come when
Garibaldi moves toward Naples, and gives
the royal forces to enemies to fight instead of
oue. His success then is far from certain ;
but should he fail, his cause will not. The
heel of the tyrant will never again rest firmly
on the neck of Italy. Our next European ad
vices may be looked for with eager expecta
tions. New York World.
