' We i have the evidence that the originators,
Instigators,' and 'friends' of the Columbian,
are ashamed to manage its business affairs,
or to acknowledge any sympathy for its suc
cess. -'-It was expected to gain; an immense
circulation' on it first appearance to. the puh

jaingneaa of another, rthe social attractiveness
of two, the extensive business, iransactipns
of others, and the patroaage of ihe Revenue
Assessorshipi,' wera targite it! place, power
and popularity,; whether it was worthy of it
rnoti : Yet we find the parties hesitating
and Bhifting- the responsibility of mating
the appointments of Assistant Assessors lest
they may. be censured by some friend. ! A
clique of .the very worst men were found to
be in' league with it ; - and it .had, and no
doubt has yet for its object the building up
of a new party: without any pledge, qualifi
cation or condition, and the destruction of
parties and principles which have been main
tained and defended through trial, blood and
treasure, fr,om th$ days of Washington and
Jefferson down to the; present time . We
Bay that we hare the evidence, and can prove
it, that some of the very men who are compelled-
to acknowledge their affiliation- with
thi3 "bastard eonceni," in their unguarded
moments, have been found plotting for the
defeat of fliESTEU Clyitek and the Demo
cratic party. We also have . the evidence
and names of metiy Democrats;' who have
refused to take the .Democrat and Star
because they -have, " to their aorrow,. been
persuaded ' to subscribe j and pay for the
Columbianx and do not feel 'able to taker
and pay for,,- more' thaav one county paper. '
We gay these things because.we believe it to
be out duty to warn Democrats not to be
deceived and ensnared by these men, who
were schemers and plotters i the 'damning
heresies btEnmo-bothingism, Native-Americanism,'
f.-c, 'who met in the dead hours of
the night, leagued together by secret oatha
and grips, making appeals to. the worst pas
sions of the human heart, and at the same
time, in day-light and in public, wearing the
mask of honesty, and endeavoring , to keep
ths fair side to London. That there will
soon be a vigorous effort made on the part of
the Columbianites to increase its circulation,
- there i3 not a shadow of a doubt, but if there
is a Democrat in the .land who can endorse
its course or recommend it to hia neighbor,
then we confess that we don't know what
Democracy is, and are, thereforeT unfit to
publish a Democratic paper for such individ
uals The Johnson papers, contrary no
doubt to the wishes of the 'President, in
counties ' where the Democratic party is
not largely in .the majority, have already
hoisted the name of Geary for Governor
and deal in vindictiveness and abuse of Mr.
Clyjier.' We are determined to be honest
and outspoken on all political questions and
party emergencies, ' and we are. Tery certain
that no emergency is required,' and no new
ground need be occupied, by Democrats, to
endorse President Johnson's restoration pol
icy; and in endorsing it, it is not necessary
that - we should subscribe to a doctrine that
favors the election of Gzary or refuses to
support Clymer. -We hope' that' this may
eerre as a timely warning to our Democratic
friends and the friends of .Johnson, Clymer,
and the Union to tread upon safe and eound
grounds' Any man who really desires the
restoration of the Union, in conformity with
the Constitution, will not, and cannot; think .
of giving: aid and strength to men and cliques
that refuse to define their position, or select
their candidates on and fof the great ques
tions of the hour.. '.Whosoever is not for the
Democratic, organization, which represents
the patriotic and Union-loving sentiment of
the country, but is found Becretly plotting
for its defeat and destruction, the same is
against ns, and. should be treated as a enemy.
FeIlcw-Democrat3, we have thus, in short,
given yon a fair type of the movements of a
designing faction in our .midst and while the
intentions of one Or two of. their clirpic ma
be for ther success of the Democratic " party
we, have every ruason to believe that the" mar
jority", or controling,' power . of this fiction
seek its overthrow. . We ask you, therefore,
to touch not, 4a;;te not of the unclean thm? ,
but commence', battlnig 'for earnest for the
guccess of th'e.D'emocratic party," width has
given yon a noble standard-bearer in the
person of HnsTER Clymer, an honest, true,
and steadfast,' Democrat,' ' and not like the
candidate on' the Abolition side, who is a
renegade, a radical of the Stevens, Sumner
and Kelly school, a negro worshipper, and a
disnnionist. :. ""' r.;.,.; ": '"

Oh, pearr Oh, Dear! ! What an awful
thing it is for the editor of the Repitblican.
to be obliged to release his hold on office. It
was not treachery for a Republican Congress
to unanimously pledge the faith of the nation
to a war for the Union and the Constitution
and afterwards exclaim "the Constitution as
it is ! and the Union as it was ! God forbid 1 "
It was not treachery for Mr, Lincoln to call
ia the field of battle a vast 'army of men to
enforce the laws and restore the Union and
after wards" declare it'toHbe a war for the ab
olition of slavery lI was not treachery to
say to the Southern people, "lay down your
arms ;'r submit to the Constitution and the
laws and "pay your taxes, and you shall
receive all their benefits," and afterwards
d6ny them representation in Congress.
Oh, no ! there is no treachery in anything
having a" tendency to" keep up a; 'war on the
people of the South and 'the democratic
party of the North.' j There . was no treach
ery in "that letter,!' in which the editor, of
the Republican pledged the support of the
entire Republican party of this county if Tie
could be kept in office! What a glorious and
enlivening effect the removal of the Asscs
aorship has had in opening the eyes of the
Doctor, as to what is treachery. There was
no treachery when President Lincoln was
the Government !. There was no treachery
when it was treason to even doubt or dispute
the loyalty of the tyrannical and unlawful
acts and proclamations of President Lincoln I
There was no, treachery,, then in robbing,
stealing, kidnapping plundering, murdering
and mobbing anything and everything which
stood in the way of the. friends and abettors
of Lincoln and his despotic, sway 1 : Really,'
Doctor, your former party frientbhave made
a pretty "muss of matters and things in gen-'
eral, and we can hav no sympathy for any
of you, only so far as some of you endorse
what we have always contended for. . . "The
way of the transgressor is hard,' isn't it?
The old dovelish spirit of discord and con
tention EtilT animates the Radical party.
They cling, with the tenacity of a dying cat,
to their old partisan prejudice and sectional
strife.' IIow they labor to magnify the in
juries.' of the negroes T what countless ne
gro martyrs there are, by their telL In the
South ? : what a vast amount . of unselfish
and humane concern do thay exhibit for an
ignorant ' and much abused ' race ? IIow
earnestly they labor to foster the angry feel
ings of the people North and Souib. The
disunion press of the North have hun Ireds
of newspaper corre-ponlents and reporters
systematically . employed to exaggerate and
misrepresent every occurrence that can le
fchaped to tell against the peaceful and law
abiding disposition of the South." ' '
Thay seize upon the late New Orleans ri
ot as a partisan god-send, they accuse Presi
dent Johnson of murder, they declare that
defenceless negroes arc murdered by. whole
sale and in cold blood .in the South, they
send . daily tidings through their, journals
that lawless and unrelenting rebels are com
mitting outrages upon union females, that
there arc hourly and murderous attacks upon
white men ; and robberies without number,
all of which are manufactured to engender
and keep up a sectional hatred and a iualig
nant"S'pirit againsf the Southern people, and
to keep them out of the Union. .They don't
tell us of the unscrupulous and unjust abuse
of President Johnson, of the real causes
of the New Orleans riot they don't tell us
that, the parading negsoes attempted to
murder a white man, in order to commence
the riot, -'-they don't tell us that after a ter
mination of the riot the peace was a ' second
time disturbed by negroes firing upon white
citizens they don't tell us of the lawless
ness of the black cut-throats of -Philadelphia
; Oh no ! they will conceal all things
calculated to unite the two great section of
our country in spirit of harmony and broth
lylove.- We think we have had enough of
this intemperate abuse "and misrepresenta
tion of Southern affairs, while we are . will
ing and demand that justice shall be done,
we have no right to demand more respect
for virtue and law from Southern citizens
than exists among our own. . : ., "

The editor of the Republican, with, his co
laborers in sin and wickedness, admits that
he is dead. Read the following from his
own paper, of August 2d, 18C6:

Little Sullivan is among the first counties
in the State that have held their nominating
Convention?, and is now fairly and squarely
in the campaign battling for the good old
cause. We may expect a favorable report from
Sullivan, and will not be surprised to hear
of her giving the Democracy an increased
majority this fall. We admire their choice
for Congress, think no better could have
been made, aud hope the gentleman named
can be induced to accept the nomination!
An Interesting Case. ,
We give below, the leading facts of a case
of lawlessness which was nactcd in Lehigh
County, Pa. j during the late, war, when the
party in power exerted the power of the gov
ernment in every conceivable shape to ruin
and destroy the property as well as the lives
of Democrats. If all the mean, malicious
and damning acts of the Lincolnites could
be brought to light, even at this day, no
doubt there are dozens, i;i this county, who
would be obliged to occupy a room in the
Penitentiary for a period of about ten years.
Read the infamous case, arid remember that
ten thousand of a worse character, are on
record, all committed by the depraved
wretches of a tyrannical administration,
many of whom would novr like to escape the
vengeance which awaits them. -
"It will be remembcied by our readers
that in February, 1363. a horse belonging
to Abram Brinker, of upper Saucnn town
ship, wa found dead in a field, having been
taken from the stable in the night time and
killed. Suspicion at once Attached itself to
Herman Ycaer one of oil Aloe's deputy
Provost Mar.-h.ih a hired Fpy and common
infonner of the same township, as the
guilty party, and criminal proceeding wer
instituted again.-t hira, but tho proof bring
siight he was not connoted. The cae being
ended as was tuppo.-ed, people talked itover
and new facts ana evidence was found con
necting Yager .with ir. ., Brinker,. brought
an action of trespass,'' and the case was" week
before last jnitsmitted to 'Messrs. James Fry,
Jonathan Reichard and Thomas Jacoby as
arbitrators. On the trial it wa3 proven that
the mare, (being then with foal) worth from
forty to eighty dollars, was found dead, hav
ing her throat cut, and a letter placed upon
her directed to Mr. Brinker, abusing him
fjr being a Democrat, and evidently show
ing that the person whocomniitted the inhu
man act was wholly prompted by political
malice for the purpose of injuring Brinker
who though a poor man, was williog to be
prosecuted for his opinion. It was further
proven by Charles Reichard that Yeajrer
told him in the harvest cf 1862 that they
would make up a Club to kill Brinker's
mare, that Yeager enjoined secrecy, and that
Yeaarer expressed himself hostile to Brinker
on account of politics J ames Crader proved
that 1 eager asked hini tojom a club to kill
Brinker's mare, and said .they would make
up a Club to da it. Other facts strongly im
plicating Yeager were proven.
Yeager denied the charges and proved by
Bergenstock, his hired mssn, that they slept
in the same room the night the mare was
killed, and thought Ycagc-r had not left the
room. Some other facts were relied upon
to ehaw an alibi, but the srbitrators were of
the opinion that the evidence wassufiicient to
prove the complicity of Yeager in the mat
ter the two of them,, to-wit : ;Me??rs. Fry and
.Jacoby- on the 2i!d day of July last, award
ed S200 damages in favor of Brinker and
against Yeager; - - ? -. .?
The spirit of lawlessness inaugurated by
the party in the position of the government
during the war manifested itself in breaches
of the peace,- in murder aad in the infliction,
of punishments upon inoffending citizens who
dared to differ with men like Yeager, but
seldom has there been so' wanton and inhu
man an act of vengeance inflicted upon' a
helpless dumb beast as in the present case.
It is only to be regretted that the case was
not prosecuted successful v in the criminal
Court, that a proper punishment by impris
onment could have ben pronounced for so
barbarous aa act We have not learned
whether Y eager intenls to appeal the case to
Court, or whetlicr he will becontent to leave
it as it is and pay the award.1 The case was
tried on the part of Brinker by John I). Stiles
and George B. Schall, Esqr?. and . on the
part of Yeager by John H. Oliver and E. J.

COUNTr IN THE
The Democratic Soldiers of Pesnsylvania
met in Convention at Harrisburg, on Wed
nesday, the 1st int Every county in the
State was 'fully represented a remarkable
fadk waei? we t'akeitrto jbn?ideration that the
Convention was composed of citizens and
not politicians. A great many of the Dele

"boys in blue" are .not going to support the
Radical's candidate for Governor this Fall.
They are going "to vote as they fought," for
the Union, the Constitution, and the laws.
It was the largest Convention ever held in
the State. In order that the revilers of the
soldier may know who were in attendance,
as Delegates at this Convention, a complete
list of Delegates have been published, giving
the Company, number of Regiment, and
term of Bervice. The unprincipled villain

The Convention convened in the Hall of
Representatives, at 10 o'clock,-A. M. Gen.
J. B, Swcitzer, of Pittsburg, was made tem
porary Chairman On taking the Chair he
made a few remarks, after which a commit
tee on permanent organization was appoint
ed, of which Capt. Broekway, of this place,
wa3 Chairman. This Committee reported
as President, Gen. William 31'Candles, of
Philadelphia, who came forward and presi
ded over the Convention with a good deal of
ability. He made a most excellent . speech,
reviewing the past actions of the Radicals,
as well as paying a high compliment to Gen.'
George B.'M'Clellan. "
After M'Candles' speech a committee on
resolutions was appointed. A thort recess
was then taken, and, on re-assembling, Gen.
M'Calmont, in the absence of the Presdcnt,
was called to the Chair.
Speeches were rnade by Swcitzer,. M'Can
dles, M'Calmont, Linion, Broekway, Al
bright, and others, at the Convention. The
resolutions -beiug roai arid adopted, the
Convention wa.s, declared adjourned, and the
delegates formed in hue and marched in pro
cession to the Hotel where Mr. CLTArnnwas
stopping. Cheers for the different favorites
rang loudly on the air, and the demands for
Clymer were made in stentorian tones. He
soon came forward and spoke to the "boys
in blue" over half an hour, in pLun and un
mistakable language, amidst the greatest en
thusiasm. He retired amid loud cheers.
William A. Wallace, Chairman of the
Democratic State Central Committee, being
called on, made a few eloquent remarks, ap
pealing to the soldiers not to desert the Union
for which they fought, and rally around the
same old flag for which so many lives had
The following are the resolutions :
Whereas, The Convention, managed and
controlled by politicians, whu h assembled in
Pittburg on the 5th oflune last pledged
the offi-rers, soldiers and seamen of Pennsyl
vania to the supjort oi'the radical disunion
mcaiuresof Congress, and a? opposed to the
just and constitutional restoration policy of
1 resident .J ohn--nn ;
'And itrhrresnt. The members of th said
Convention 'falsely styled themselves the
'JiepreaChtativas of the soldiers and sailors
of Pennsylvania," and presumed to speak
for them without authority;
; And whereas, The proceedings of the said
Convention misrepresent the true sentiments
of the great mass of the retuined soldiers and
sailors of this State and do great injustice to
the late defenders of the Constitution and
Union ; therefore, be it
1. Resoficd, That we, authorized repre
sentatives of our late companions in arms,
do repudiate theproceedingsoi the Pittsburg
convention of the 5th cf June, because they
do not represent the true sentiments; of the
officers, soldiers and seamen of Pennsylva
nia. , .
2. Resolced, That we hold the same belief
now that we did when we took up arms in
1661, that the war was ''awarfor the Union"
and for no other purpose : that the agree
ment we made with t he Government when
we took up arms to defend her against arm
ed rebellion is found in the jointresolution of
Congress adopted July 22d, 1801, which de
clares that '"This war is not prosecuted on
our part in any spirit of oppression, nor for
any purpose of conquest or subjugation, but
to defend and maintain the supremacy of the
Constitution and to preserve the Union, with
all the dignity, equality, and rights of the
several States unimpaired." This is the
bond many sealed with theirlives, and many
others signed in blood.
3. Resolved, That the failure of Congress
to carry into effect this joint resolution, after
the war is over, and to restore Union, "icith
u!l the dignity, equality and rights of the
several Statics unimpaired." is a gross viola
tion of a solemn compact made with the de
fenders of the Government at her time of
greatest need and peril. ,
4. Resolv&l, That we repudiate the action
of the radical Congrrss, which is an insult
to every officer, soldier and waman who
served in the Federal annydnring the rebell
ion. I ler policy admits that our victories
accomplished what the enemy could not
divide the Union and the fruits of our toil
and blood-bought victories turn to ashes in
5. Resolved, Thzt we cordially endorse the
restoration policy of President Johnson, as
announced in his annua', special and veto
message, and as further n.ade known to the
country in his treatment of the States lately
in rebellion. We believe it to be iust and
humane, find better adapted than any other
known policy, to restore those States to their
constitutional relations to the Linon, and
bring renewed peace, happiness and prosper
itsto the country. It is in keeping with
that generous treatment which a magnani
mous victor always extends to a brave foe.
6. Resolved, That the action of Congress
in refusme seats to the Senators and Mem
bers from the South who boar truealleciance
to the Constitution and laws, while that body
is encaged in changing the fundamenlal law
of the country in an important particular,' is
revolutionary Jn its action ; while their con
duct in taxing the fcouth without her con
sent, strikes at the vital prineiple of consti
tutional liberty--lhat there can be no taxa
lion without representation.-'
7.'iso?rrcZ."That we are opposed, in ne
gro suffrage.- All legislation that has for its
object the raising of the negrd to a social or
poirticacal equality with the white man, or to
make him the pet of the nation, meets our
unqualified disapproval. He and hi." friends
should be satisfied that the war has given his
aim to control the destinies of the country.
8. Resolved, That we return thanks to
Almighty God for giving victory to the Fed
eral armies over armed insurgents, and we
congratulate the country' upon a return of
peace. It is as much our duty now to use
our best endeavors to heal up the wounds of
the rebellion as it was to take up arms in do
fence of the Union.
9. Resolved, That we deny that John W.
Geary is the Foldiers' candidate for Governor
of Pennsylvania. He is the choice of the
Radicals who are now plotting to destroy the
Union we periled our lives to preserve. The
men who placed him in nomination and who
are.nqw his most active supporters, - repudi
ate the object of the war by declaring, the
South out of the Union. By accepting their
nomination- he assumes - their principles,
which violate everything he professed to con
tend for in the field,
10. Resolved, That we endorse the nom
ination of the lion. Hiester Clymer, Demo
cratic Candidate for Governor of Pennsylva
nia, because he is a man of integrity, and a
statesman of experience, nod approves the
fuinciples we advocate. We call upon our
ate companions in arms in this State to ral
ly to his support, for his election will be an
endorsement of the cause for which we fought
and bled, while his defeat will be a defeat to
the caure of the Union.
11. Resolved, That the Radicals in Con
gress, professing to speak for the majority
of the people, have recently testified their
preference for the negro by appropriating
monies to support him in idleness, by the
payment to him of a bounty of thre'e hun
dred dollars, and .their repudiation of the
white soldier and his claims, by the passage
of a bounty bill allowing but one hundred
dollars to hira, without even a provision ap
propriating money for the payment of the
same, thus disregarding his faithful and pa
triotic services, demonstrates to the country
their belief in the assertion that "the negro
bears the palm.'!
12. Resolved, That we, the soldiers of
Pennsylvania, in Convention assembled, do
return our sincere thanks to the Hon. Chas.
R. Buckalew and Hon. Edgar Cowan, our
representatives in the Senate of the United
States, for their noble conduct in sustaining
the President's policy of restoration.
BrB,. The G EARYelectioneeringdocuments,
handed out by the Post Master of this place,
would make the Abolition candidate for Gov
ernor, the greatest General living a man
whom we heard scarcely anything of during
the war ! Geary's mi'.itiry record reminds
u i of a little etory that Ls told of a would-be-

Foreign Xews. A peace conference is
soon to convene at Prague. The basis of
negotiations are these : Austria is to pay
$10,000,000 to her adversaries as expenses
of the war. She is also to withdraw from
the German Confederation, and is to give up
Venetia and her part of Schelswig-Holstein.
The Gercman States, north of the Maine,
are to form a union under the guidance of
Prusia. The German States south of the
Maine are to form an independent union.

be considered by many, and properly too, as
stepping out-side of his line of duty, when
he publishes to the world the circulation of
any newspaper delivered at his office for dis
tribution. He could as easily justify his ac

whom, the editor of the Columbian sends
letters. ' In exposing the circulation of the
Columbian we think he did a very unkind
act to those concerned, besides a" thing,
we hold, that he had not a particle of right
to do. It is no part of his business to make
any expositions of that kind in his office.
He may have done these Columbian people
great injustice by causing them to sustain
an irreparable loss in patronage. Dan. don't
do that thing again.

of many Democrats a.s regards the good re
