In'respect to the aid or assistance of ,a

its own party, . we think it should remain en
tirely silent' In" this county where a nomi
nation is equivalent to an election,' we know
that the battle must be fought previous to
the nominating Convention,- and knowing
that our candidates are all worthy and en
tirely capable of filling the positions for
which they arc announced, the matter, with
us, shall be left where it rightfully belongs,
exclusively with the people of the county,
relying on the honesty and abilities of our
candidates to promote the public interests as
servants of the people Feeling assured
that the people will not suffer br want of
competency, in any of the candidate?, 'we
are determined not to interfere either for or
against any one .who comes out for office,
before the nominating convention meets.
Notwithstanding the entreaties and demands
we think our duty ' is to ; support our party
principles and make Its organization as strong
aa we can: To do this every candidate should
have a clear field and fair play. To favor,
swith a newspaper, the nomination of any
particular candidate would be improper,
Itesides, wrong to the other candidates
and their friends. It would help to get up
factions and- splits, which every Democrat
should do his best to prevent. At this time,
more than any other, we need union and har
mony among the members of the Democrat
id party. Let every candidate place himself
squarely and fairly before the people; let
justice be done, one to another, and let every
one be fully determined to abide the result
cheerfully. Those who shall be placed in
nomination by the convention, will receive
our willing and undivided support and the
support of the Democratic party. Those

f THEIR POLITICAL RIGHTI BT ACT OJ CON-
qRESS MARCH 3, 18 00. -j f
Last week the Supreme "Court of Penn
Fylvania, sitting at WilkeBbarre, decided, by
a majority against the above mentioned act
-of Congress, which act was intended to dis
franchise deserters from the military service
and non-reporting drafted men. As our opin-
Jonof both the act of Congresa and of our
State Legislature, has been heretofore ex
pressed,, time, and. again, in our paper, we
deem it only necessary to say at this time,
that it is perfectly astounding, that two jus
tices, upon the Supreme Bench, should re
fuse for a moment, to condemn those acts
as unconstitutional when they are in direct
conflict with the Constitutions of both the
State and Nation. That Governor Curtin,
would lend hia aid and signature to such, leg
islation we at times had serious doubts. How
ever, with a little reflection of the past con
duct of the man, the complete tool he has
been for tyrant3 and mobs, it ia surprising
that we could ever expect anything better of
him than to find him engaged in doing the
bidding of knaves and intolerant partizans.
His chief acta of life consist in pardoning
convicted criminals, because .they were Dis
unionists, recommending partial and pre
scriptive legislation, dog-killing and drunk
enness. , : ,.
Let the thanks of every citizen who ia a
lover of law and liberty, be tendered to J us

Let the curses and fingers of shame rest on
the partizans Reed, and Agnew, who follow
the lead of Stevens and Sumner, claiming
that the late war abrogated Constitutions
both State and Federal. , The leal talent of
the country and the good sense of the peo
ple is and ever will be in favor of Woodward,
"Thompson andStrong,and against Reed and

men, in high positions, who will defend Con

Sectional Political Parties.
In these days of trials, of new ideas, of
party advancement and of political reconstruc
tion, it ia highly important that the Demo
cratic party should in the future, as in the
past, guard against anything looking towards
sectionalism. Let it still be the aim and ob
ject of the Democratic party to inculcate
nationality of sentiment, and make its geog
raphy and boundaries nothing less than the
entire Republic. The foundations, the struc
ture, and the principles upon which the
Democratic party was built are as pure, as
deep, aa broad and aa substantial as they
were when our Democratic organization orig
inated. ' . ! :
Washington and Webster described
the dangers and perils of fectionalisra which
appeared in their time, and the present gen
eration are realizing the serious and burden
some consequences of a haughty, reckless,
intolerant arid treasonable sectional party.
As Democrat0, upholding the fundamental
principles of freedom and constitutionalism
upon which that organization originated, we
believe the only thing required to place the
Democratic party in power, now and perma
nently, South aa well aa North, ia by stand
ing firm to its nationality. And to do this
we do not see that it is necessary toconstruct
any new party or parties. Without the
exact principles of the Democracy, true po
litical unity with all sections will be impos
sible. It cannot be successfully contradicted,
that the Republican party i., and always has
been a purely sectional party. Its measure3,
its platforms, its war policy, its legislation
and its entire action, all are, and have been,
shaped and guided to this end. They arc
determined that the white people of the
South , shall have no chance even if the
poor white people of the North arc degraded
and burdened to effect their purposes.
They, the Republican party, have decided
that there shall be no Union party at the
South unless they are black men, or, if
white, they must beconfe equals to the ne
gro. That this is the Radical programme
we think nono dare deny, and that their
practices and principles , are radically sec
tional, we think no one will deny. Therefore,
the Republican party is unworthy the sup
port of the people of the nation and cannot
exist permanently ; while there i3 nothing
in the fundamental principles of the Demo-
cratic party lo prevent it from its usual con
trolling power in each and all the States of
the Union, Southern equally with Northern.
Let thb course be strictly pursued by our
leaders, and all will yet be well.

Startling Admissions from a Re
H 4 publican: Editor, "n"
;. The New York Times, in commentig upon
Mr. Raymond's late speech ia the National
House, of' Representatives, ,and iq, which he
acted aa dictator to the Disunion party, in
regard to ita future principles and power,
made the following honest acknowledgment :
"For the jast fifteen years the'Repub.limrr
and the Union parties have been compelled
to content themselves with a sectional organ
ization. The warf are concerning Slaveryliad
driven them out of the Slave State ; They
hadonly what strength their principles could
give them in the. .North and W est, but
their principles were strong enough in 1860
to give them the victory, and were, for the
first time in our history, embodied in the ad
ministration of the National Government
That victory, involved the country in a war
of sections, and until that war was closed,
nothing but a sccticual contest could be car
ried on." '
Just what the Democratic party for the
last fifteen years have constantly contended,
that the Republican party in zv.d has always
been a sectional on- and that the late war
was nothing but a swtional contest in which
Democrats were lead to participate by a lie-
ing, treacherous adrainistratio'n. .
Now that this sectional organization has
accomplished ita object of conquering the
South, and signally failed in enforcing Ne
gro Suffrage and Negro Equality on the peo
ple of both sections, sceiug that their sec
tionalism is about to be condemned by a bur
dened and outraged people, that their
whole scheme has been nothing but a school
of deception upon a hugu scale, their lead
era, like Mr. . llaymond, are pleading and
praying that their e5Ctionalism must be laid
aside that unless mwintcrcstsand new mo
tives shall control their part' in the future
they are doomed to everlasting infamy.
Hence this startling and unexpected confes
sion. A point whiclLihcy have persistently
denied for the last fifteen years. -
Mr. Raymond also tells his party Uiat "thia
session of Congress Las been spent we may
almost say wasted in fruitless partizan leg
islation." "The efforts of the Republican
party have been,' not to promote wise and
just reforms, but to perpetuate the sectional
ascendency which th'? war has given them."
And to counteract thia unwise policy on the
part of the Republican party, he argues
strong for the holding of a National Union
Convention at Baltimore or Philadelphia, in
order to get the views of the party before
they adopt the whole couutry fur their field
of labor. We hope that something will be
done to check the present unwise policy of
the Republican ' party, and to effect this we
think the best thing, and the only thing that
will effectually put an end to their sectional
schemes will be an overwhelming defeat at
the polls this Fall. , Let this be the object of
every good citizen who has hia country's wel
fare at heart, let ourefforta be directed to this
end and our wishes wf.ll be realized, and na

The followingeloquent extract ia from the
speech of. Hon.' Ed oar S Cowan, in the
United States ; Senate, June 6th 1866, on
the miscalled Jleconstruction - propositions
which have since passed Congresa :
Suppose you pass thia amendment to the
Constitution, and suppose the Southern
States, either for the purpose of getting
themselves into line with you or for the puK
pose of increasing their political power under
it, should admit the negro to the franchise,
will your children and your homes and your
government be the more secure for that?
What is the difficulty Under which you labor
to-day.? Is it that the food upon which the
demagogue fattens has grown scarce and he
has grown thin? Or is it the reverse ? Is it
not becuuse demagogism is rife everywhere ;
and is not demagogism rife just in propor
tion as you furnish it the material upon
which to work? Degrade your franchise,
put it down in the hands of men who have
no intelligence, no virtue, and what is worst
of all, no independence put it into the
hands of men who have nothing to hope
from it except in so fir as they can use it for
corrupt purposes, and shall we be saf er then.
1 ask r Do you suppose that the people ot
the States in which there are negroes will
send you more intelligent, more learned,
more virtuous, and more independent Sena
tors and Representatives here if 3-ou make
this chanee than they would without?
- Mr. WILSON. They will send more
"Mr. COWAN. "Loval." What is "loy
al?" I ask Massachusetts what is "loval?
What is the meaning of the word ? A fellow
that votes with you I That is like the chap
defining "orthodox" "orthodox is the way
I believe ; heterodox is the way the other
man believes." "Loyal" means an. Aboli
tionist, I suppose. At least I find that
everybody who does not happen to be an
Abolitionist or tarred with that stick, is
said to be disloyal. Loyalty, Mr. President,
is a very simple word. Loyalty means obe
dience to the laws. It means legality. . -grdis
means law as well as lex meant it.
When a man alleges his loyalty to me, let me
see his reverence for the Cons itution and
the laws. Show me a man who disregards
either ; show me a man who does not believe
in the Constitution which brought this coun
try to such a pitch of prosperity for sevent
five years and made us so great and so happy
a people ; show me a man that lays sacrilegi
ous hands upon that instrument, especially
when I know that half the tim6 he does not
understand it and that he never read a com
mentary upon it in his life ; show me that
man, and I show you one who is not loyal.
Shownie a man who f r temporary advan
tage, either for himself or his paaty, woidd
set a foot upon one of his country's laws
and he is not loyal.
It is time we were beginning to understand
the meaning of words in this country. It is
time, now that the war is over, when pas
sion has subsided and when reason ought to
come back and resume her throne, that we
ourselves should be reasonable. Let us look
at this in the light of the past ; let us look
at it calmly and coolly as we survey it in by
gone thousands of years, not as it looks to
the eye blood-shot with passion, red with
rage that is hardly dying out Let the lower
stock indulge in passion if it isto be indulged
in; but here in this the highest forum of
the nation; here whercj if anywhere, there
should be justice and fairncs?, and the broad
view over the whole country which takes it
all in and which consider? all the people as
the people, virtuous, intelligent, indepen
dent enough to govern the country ; let 113
here be reasonable, and especially let us
know the meaning of our words.
I '' m m
We give below our opinion of the position
which the Democrata should occupy, while
the third political pa'rty is in process of for
mation. It corroborates the doctrine which
we have over and over proclaimed to our Co
lumbia County Democrats who are being at
this time specially invited and urged to join
the new Union Consolidation Party. If this
warning is heeded and the principles adhered
to wo can lose nothing and may gain much.
TnREE Parties is Kentttky. There
are now three parties in Kentucky, each hav
ing a candidate for Clerk of Appeals in the
field. These parties are the Democratic Par
ty, the National Union Consflidation,and the
Radical Abolition Parti. These parties arc
pretty plain indication as to what things are
coming to. Three parties now exist in fact
in all of the States of the Union, but they
have not yet taken shape in some of them.
But three distinct elements exist and it will
only be necessary for them to get together
and assume form, to have three Parties as
distinctly jn every Ski to as they now actually
exist in Kentucky. Where, as yet only two
parties exist in form, the efforts are strong
to transfer the Democratic Party over into
the National Union Consolidation Party.
Democrata must as a matter of course be
cautious or else they may be led and trans
ferred over into this new Party before they
are aware of the direction in which things
arc drifting. -They must adhere to the infal
lible guide of principle. Democrats must
not follow men, but principles. Men will de
ceive, beguile and pass away, but principles,
never. The Democracy of Kentucky will
achieve the first great victory of 18"6, in
August, and the same condition of thines
will secure the Democratic Candidate for
President in 1SC8. Norrsitotcn Register.

in friendly intercourse. At about 2 o'clock
Mr. Clymer was escorted to the fair build

crowd by the lion. John D. Stiles, and wel

thanked the assemblage for his kind recep

few eloquent remarks complimentary to fire
menthose who ever hold themselves in

property of our citizens generally, and spoke
in terms of high commendation of the en

wherewithal to secure more efficient appa

the beautiful goods and wares exhibited be

had discoursed feveral fine pieces of music,
loud cries for "Clymer" were raised by the

honors. In reply the Honorable gentleman
thanked his hearers for the honor conferred
upon him, and delivered a beautiful little
speech, in which he referred to our beauty
and growth as a town, the industry and en

mineral wealth of our county, etc. He said
that probably many had come to sec him

Mr. Clymer was followed on I hursday by
that "life-long Democrat," John W. Gear-,
the present Dead Duck candidate for Gov
ernor on the Negro-Equality ticket of Penn
sylvania. The Union Leaguers were disposed
to make a great fuss with this parcel of Dem
ocratic vomit a great deal more than the
occasion warranted or good sense should
The would-lxi Governor had been civen
quarters at the Eagle Hotel. His friends
posted him as to Clymer's donation to the
company, but, being short of funds, the
hero of Harper s rcrry coming "to time m
a similar manner out of his own resource?.
He came "unprepared," as he said, not
thinking of such thimrs as donations. He
was short, yet he felt like acting 'big," say
ing he would give $100 if he just had it.
His friends felt mortified at this unfavorable
condition of tlmr candidate's pockets, and
raised 5-50 on the mutual admiration plan.
All being in readiness in the afternoon, the
great representative man of fanatics, hypo
crites and robbers was escorted to the fair
and duly introduced to the crowd dienitv
all the while setting perched upon his intel
ligent countenance, like thejradflyon the
cocked hat of Sir Diedrich Knickerbocker.
He endeavored "to m:kc a speech, showing
his tusk?, smoothed his wrinkled brow, un
doubted hisSsts and said "Let the treasurer
come forward. I donate seventy dollars."
Counting out his greasy jreenba ks he found
he had been given but Jity dollars, a most
perplexing dilemma ; so ai'ter fumbling about
his pockets for about five minute?, and find
ing no more "stamps," said he would give
his check for the balance, but up to this
time said check has not come forward.
After "speaking his piece" he was lion
ized about the place for a short time and
then taken out to recuperate with a little
whiskey and ice. Before leaving the place,
however, a little incident occurred, which we
cannot refrain from telling, because it shows
how Geary is bound down with Ugotry and
party bias in comparison with Clymer. The
latter magnanimously cast a vote for each of
the contestants for the Reception Chair,
whilst, the former cast three solely for the
Republican candidate. The best of it is,
however, the Democratic candidate did not
need Geary's vote,' for his majority is within
a few as large as McIIose's whole vote.
Geary's visit to Allcntown, upon the
whole, was stale, fiat and unprofitable, and
the October election will show that he made
"dead ducks" of his entire partj. The De
mocracy is gathering up its irresistible
strength, and preparing to win a good old
fashioned victory in October, and the Wool
worshippers may as well submit to their fate
quietly, for they are doomed to defeat. lf
Up to the Puritan Mark. The Chief
of Police of Marblehead, Massachusetts,
docs not mean to conceal his candle in a dark
lantern, or allow the odor of Puritanism to
die out He has. given notice to the people
of that place that he and his police mean to
be about on Sunday. He says :
"The individual attention of the whole
police force will be specially directed toward
the enforcement of the Sunday-law, the dog
law, andfrthe by-laws of the town. Standing
on the sidewalks or curbstones, or sitting up
on doorsteps or entrances to any dwelling-
houses, store, building or inclosure, on the
Sabbath day or evening, or at any other time
contrary to the interest and meaning of the
statute, will be punished to the utmost rigor
of the law."
The Puritans endeavor to make Sunday
as sour as possible, and give to religion as
hard an aspect as they can.
European War. There is every indica
tion of a fierce and general European War
without much further delay. A peace con
