The Republican party chested themselves tremendously when they elected to effice , Andrew Johnson, Senator Cowan, Nes sm'uh, Congressman, Raymond ard olllcrs. By their own Republican votes they placed item in high' positions of power and au-thr-ri'y. Ey Ilepntlican pledges and sol err.n protestations to the American people, that their princip'es were in entire barmo ' riy with the Union ; that they were earnest and sincere in their intentions to maintain the Constitution and labor faj, the gcod of whole country ; that :hey were a 4r.o par ty:' party, or a "Union" pany, or a "Loyal Leag8" party, neither the abolition of sla very, Negro Suffrage, Equality of the races, amalgamation, centralization or anything of the kind were thj pledges, they gave the people, and the very ones too ty which they placed their candidates in power. Our opponents have always dodged and denied the true issnes when appealing to the peo ple In 1855 tbey tried to ride ii.to power on the cry of free-spetch and free press,al though they failed, yet we have evey rea son to telleve, by their abjsrary acu during their late accession to power that there was To meaning in their declarations. Throojh Congressional resolution", and numberless pcblic speeches, they pledged their honor that the !a:e ar.wa,vof for the abolition of slavery tut for the restoration of tLe Uuicn and the mainjanace of the Conslilutlcn. Is their a sane man. now living who be lieve that they inteded ro carry out there jldged ? No; not one. Tbey bellowed long and toed and shook themselves night and day to rid themselves - cf the trn'hfcl charge of being advocates of Negro SofTraga. IVe ask 30a readers, know ing thai yon are acquainted with the past -and present state of affairs, were they, then and are they nob sincere in their declara tions ? The fact is the Republican parly ask their officers to carry ont an entirely differ ent programme from that snbrciued to ; and ndorsed by the people. But with pride and honor to the above named patriots who bave taken Ihe Constitution for their gnide, w ho are determined fo carry out the princi ples upon which tbey were elected, who are faithful to '.heir pledges ; and to the will "" ef their constituent, who Bre not to be de lated and fascinated by Republican disun ion trieks and mid-night schemes. How tV.riously and woefully are the Radicals disappointed in the persons of the above named patriots. .Their disappointment is 3 ist ; it's the reward they meril ; an 1 we further say lo those pore-hearted and clear minded patriots, wbom we delight to bon er, to s'and fast,' be Crm, stead-fast and persevering Let the hypocrites, false rtaeher and disunion's, bool and iqairm, aiJ" demand rour reeignati'on, yon are per foiming: a goJd work, yon are aithfulto - jour pledges, your sworn -duty, and 10 your constituents, and will reap a reward cf 5" approving conscience, ana receive lom th people the plaudit, "well docs good ar.l faithful servant."

Yfe sirrply endorse trim in his-constitutional effort? to restore the Union of our fathers, and lo bring I peace and order oul of confusion. So long as Abraham Lincoln adopted wise and constitutional-measures the Democratic party aided him in the field and at home. Their support to his successor is ' the more out spoken, because the Radicals of his own party bare denounced him and if we failed to cast our strength for him in Congress, every one knows bis pplicy could not pre vail nor would his vetoes prove effective. Moreover, our support is disinterested. That is, we neither claim nor ask . from bim any reward in the shape of offices. We wish to prove that our party js one of prin cip!end needs not the cohesive power of blonder to keep it together, nor can i:s sup port be pun'msed. But we: do insist thai Andy Johnson thall Gil ttie offices ; within his gift by bis friends, and: not by avowed enemies... And we insist that they who en dorse the Radicals in Concress are bis en emies, because they encourage them in their opposition to bis policy. Tt.e Presi dent has taken an appeal from Congress to to the people, and it i utterly impossible, crpecuiVy for an rjji:e holder, to endorse both. He who is not for him is against him, and where the lines are so clearly drawn, ihere is no middla course. . : A Word to Our Subscribers. Having combined the two 'Democratic papers of this place, we feel entirely safe in saying, that the Dmocrit and Sak bas to-day a larger circulation than any other county paper in Northern Pennsylvania ; and with the steady increase ii circulation which it now enjoys, and with a little' more energy on the pan of our many friends these nemteri will soon te increased to two thousand fiva hundred. Nothing less than this should satisfy the Democratic party. Enterprise, industry and money, will te liberally expanded to make the Democrat A5D Star in every respect a fir$t class r,e;vspaer. Our mechanical imjrove merits, however, cannot be made, and should not be expected, until after the first of April next, when we will remote our combined material and force, to a better business location. Pro fjundly impressed with the desire to do all in our power for the edification, prosperity and happiness of the people, we kfndly ask theirsympathy a;id sopport, and above all, thefjTorof Hitn who crowns every good work. ; " The principle i firm'y fai l in the minh of ihe Ametican Teip't that there shmil-l he A'O TAXATION WITHOUT IiEPRESEXTA- llOX "Ex!nicl from TreiiJenl Johnson's I Veto Lhsage. j That's the tree Democratic docirine !

It is net an ui.commcn thing here to see men minus the toes of one foot or both, son e limes a whole foot and sometimes both feet. Tbe frequency of the occurrence of gold ex citement, caused by new disco, eries, and the consequent rush ai d general stampedes lo (hoe points, and these being for the most part in winter, are the reasons why so many become frozen. Two or three stampedes have taken place this winter. A new dis covery, was made at Sun River, about 130 miles nonh of this place and hundreds ol men were soon on their way thither some in wagons, some on horseback, and some on toot, with the-r 6ngle pack animal carry- ing their "grub," mining implements and cooking oteusils.

If these things had been done in summer, inatead ofmid-siintef,' it would not have been so bad, but at this season it seems very bard.

He spoke of the internal revenue, and said That a resto ration ol the Government in' all its branches would have the effect to remove all the bur densome internal tax of the country. Any thing he cdold do to promote all the inter- ests of ihe country, he assured them be would do. - Mr. Ward then said : The great danger to the country are ihe vast importations (rom Europe, which cannot be checked except by the imposition of huh duties. . The President replied : By creatine a greater demand for the currency in extend ing the 'area of its circulation, thereby ob viating the necessity of diminishing it, all danger would be averted. The paramount object, however, i to let us have a restored Government a uni ed Union. Mr. Ward here said : We are under the impression we have a government. The President replied: Let us have a whole Government a restored Union, a thoroughly reconciled and united couniry. The members of the Committee were then severally introduced io the President, and the delegation withdrew.
