WESTER CLYMER, or EEBKS COUNTY. Who are the Theives now ? Self-styled "loyal'- newspapers made the " name of Floyd synonymous with "theif " and why? ."Because, when secession was about to be inaugurated, he took possession of and distributed among the Southern States a large amount of arms and warlike munitions belonging to the Government. What are the Disunionists now at? At tempting to get control of the warlike prop erty of the Government for distribution among the New England States and other States whose officials are known to bo favor able to the Rump usurpation I Who are the Floyds now? Every Rump Disunionist who voted for the resolution to distribute the arm3 of the Government is a theif and a revolutionist, and the country will hold them all responsible for the bloodshed and anarchy which may result from the treason able acta which they are perpetrating, and which, sooner or later, must end in civil war. Black Statistics. The Press and other "loyal" journals are publishing, with eulogistic sayings, the acts and heroic deeds committed by "our sable defenders" the negro soldiers. This is in proper keeping with the tone and conduct of all those newspapers. Whenever a question of patriotism or veracity arises between a white man and a negro, they always take the side of the darkey. According to a tabular statement publifih- - fid, we observe that 1 1,018 negroes tfcre mus tered into the United States service during the war, at Camp William Perm, l'hiladel phix Of this number 427 died of wounds, 8S6 deserted, (we had no idea that a nigger could desert,) and the number discharged, and the losses by disease amount in the ag- gregate to 3,368. The published tables give no column of those killed in battle ; but if we are to accept the sayings of those self constituted loyalists for truth, -we -presume the' lalhnce all feJ at the front in bayonet .. charges on the "rebel works." Perhaps I Ihe Democratic Party. Prom the time of the defeat of tho Feder al party under Hamilton, by the Democracy, led by Jefferson, until now, the Democratic party has been the defender of the Constitu tion, and the Union. Against alien and se dition laws, anti-3Iasonry, Know-Nothing-ism, New England treason, Abolition and Rebellion, the United Statc3 Bank power and its corruptions, the Democracy have bat .... - T.fyVnn fear or faltering. That party has, in all these trials, kept its faith, fought the good fight, .tad will yet reap the rich re ward of its integrity. Defeated, its death and burial have as often been proclaimed by those sanguine place-hunters who believe ... T1nnrl,-r tr be Rvnonomous with patriotism. U Tf. "etniUvfva" tn Toinlce in its name and LL the principles that name denotes. Willing now, in this great crisis, to unite with all good men in order to save the Constitution and the Union, by a joint effort for 50 glo rious an object, yet its history and it3 achieve ments, its trials and its steadfastness to tho true principles of our Government-the rights and liberties of the people and the States forbid that it should subordinate it3 organi zation or intermit it3 name. When nation al restoration is an assured political fact, the J.emocratio party will ennoble that epoch and justify the ceremonies of rejoicing by the great and enduring principles inscribed on its banners. What Geasy thinks of the Solditiis. Geary says that the "men who met at Har risburg a few days ago as soldiers, to hold a soldiers, State Convention were " cowards, skulkers, shysters, and hospital bummers." Such is the opinion, the abolition candidate for governor has of the soldiers, who be lieve they are better than a negro. It ill be . comes a man whose cowardice chased him in to a ditch, who has skulked every battle he possibly could , and who was always found in the rear of his command, except in case of retreat when he would be far in advance, to "talk of "cowards," "skulkers," &c. Geary cfcire not come into this section and tell the men, who went from hero as delegates, or those that sent them, that they are "cow ards" and "skulkers." lie would bo left in a worse fix than he was when the man f pit in his face in Kansas, and be scared oree than when he hid in the ditch at Chc- pultepec. j HOW DO YO0 LIKE IT SOLDIERS ? You who fought for the restoration of the South ern States to the Union, how do you like the programme adopted by Congress to keep those States out of tho Union? How do you like the expenditure of millions to keep up the negro Bureau, whilst you and your families must earn your bread by the sweat of your face? How do you like the contin ual, persistent and endless legislation by Congress for the blacks, whilst not a single enactment is made for your relief? How do yon hie the doctrines of the Radicals, that you fought for Negro Suffrage and the Equal ity of the Races, instead of for the Union - and the Constitution? If you like all this, to to for Gen. Geary. If not, cast your bal lot for Hieser Clymer, tho candidate of the Union men, and the white men of Pennsyl vania. ZZJTke President of the United States U ready to issue a proclamation, dated Au 20th 18C6, declaring that the insurrection which heretofore existed in the State . of Tcxa3isatan end, and that peace, order, tranquility and civil authority now exists in and throughout the whole, of -tho United States cf America. - The National Convention. . This body of the Representatives of all the States and Territories, called together to counsel for the purpose of restoring the Union to its former condition under the Constitu tion, met at the Wigwam erected for tho purpose, on Tuesday, the 14th inst The crowd was immense, notwithstanding tho in clemency of the weather. The Convention was organized at half past 12 o'clock, by ap pointing Gen. John A. Dix, of New York, temporary Chairman. Gen. Dix on taking tho chair, delivered an able and patriotic ad dress, which elicited the applause of the vast concourse. After the conclusion of General Dix's remarks, prayer was offered by Rev. Mr. McDonald. The' call for the Convention was then read, after which a committee, con sisting of one delegate from each State and Territory, was appointed by the Chair. The Address to tho people of tho United States, signed by the Democratic members of Con gress, and the circular issued by J udgo Blair, and Hon. A. W. Randall, were read. Senator Doolittle, was chosen permanent President of the Convention. The Massachusetts and South Carolina Delegates entered the Wig wam arm in arm, headed by Gov. Orr, of South Carolina and Gen. Coi;r!i of Massa chusetts, which elictitcd the most tumultu ous applause. A declaration of principles was read by Secretary Perrin, and an address to the people of the United States was read by Henry J. Raymond. On motion of Hon. Reverdy Johnson, an official copy of the pro ceedings wa3 ordered to be prepared and printed, and a committee appointed to wait upon tho President and present him with an authentic copy. A National Union Execu tive Committee and a Committee of finance were also appointed. After thanking Mayor Mc3Iicflael, the Reporters and citizens, and giving three times three hearty cheers for the Union, the Convention ended with the thanks of President Doolittle to the Con vention for their kindness and courtesy to himself and finally introducing the Rev. Mr. Elliot, who pronounced the parting benedic tion. Delegates from every section of the Union gathered to this Convention. The Hotels overflowed and the streets were full with strangers. Wire- pulling and discussing policy was all done in secret and in the rooms of the various Committees. But the talk and hum of the corridors were open, frank and full of earnest and hearty good nature. Each State had its headquarters or Commit tee rooms. While the Convention would not have perpetrated the outrage of excluding tho Woods and Vallandioiiam, yet the Democratic party was too much devoted to the high patriotic object in view to permit the presence of those men to disturb, in the least, the deliberations of the Convention. The resolutions of 1798-9 are the great truths reiterated by the Convention. The Democratic party have the men and the plat form to lead and control the entire move ment, yet it was considered practicable and proper, that the Convention be conducted by tho men who elected President Johnson. The views and foclings of the Democratic party were specially represented and had a cheerful and salutary effect in shaping the proceedings of the Convention. The great desire of all parties participating in the Con vention was, that it should do well its speci fied work, so that when the great Democrat ic party has assembled in general Conven tion, and will have hundreds of thousands of a numerical majority,-that tho acts and deliberations of this Convention may receive its hearty response and unanimous approval. So far as we have been ablo to understand the actions of the Convention it has pledged itself to the defence of the rights of the States guaranteed by the Constitution, and to the ancient and modern, noble and con stitutional doctrines of the Democratic party. And we know that we f peak the sentiment of the Democratic rarty, when we say that we cheerfully pledge ourselves, our liberties, our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honors to vindicate the President in his efforts to je stora the States to their legitimate authori ty and representation of their people. We ask no offices at his hands and must not be expected to surrender any principles. The Democrats will give this support, in conso nance with the invariable instructions of the leading Johnson Republicans, and the ad vice of every Democratic champion and sen tinel of liberty in our country, Democrats we say, will give this support in their own way, through their own organs and organiza tions, in accordance with the principles and usages of the great Democratic party which made the Union by the Constitution, and made our country illustrious and our people free, and who have a majority of hundreds of thousands in the total vote of tho country. The principles and the 'name of the great Democratic party arc not to be abandoned, but to stand as an unbroken army, strength ened by the action of those calling themselves Johnson men, and arrayed against tests and test oaths, other than those prescribed by the Constitution, and against those mon-, strous retrospective test oaths which were never written in the English languago before they were forced upon the country, much less adopted by a deliberate act of the pres ent legislative mob, called the Congress of the United States. No, Fellow-Democrats you are not asked by the Philadelphia Convention, (as the Radicals would have it,) to give up your name and organization but to stand firm and unflincliingly to Democ racy and its principles. But on the other hand every IlexniUican-Johnson speaker in the National Guard's Hall during the week of the Convention, even the Secretary of the Convention in alengthy and powerful speech, earnestly with all the others, recommended the JohnsoQ Republicans to vote for the Democratic nominees and to support the principles of the Democratic party which would result in the good of the whole coun try. Tho Convention continued its sessions for three days. K3- We call the attention of soldiers, and others entitled to the same, that arrange ments are about being consummated for the payment of the extra bounty authorized by the late act of Congress, and we invite ail those who have claims to collect, to call at tho office of the Dehockat and Stab, and we will refer them to responsible agents who will collect all ordinary claims for 5 per cent More than this is an outrage uponthc Soldier. They Stab while they say, -It is .-well with thee, my Brother." The Columbian of last week, appears to be eager to quell the conflagration which it enkindled by attacking the principles and customs of the Democratic party, and by an attempt to frighten us into their service to deceive the public. . We would respectfully inform the Columbian that we disrelish the turbulence, tumult and conspiracy which it labors to inaugurate in the ranks of the De mocracy ; things that it thinks will help its cause wonderfully. We endeavor to publish a Democratic paper, for the good of the Democratic party of this county, and it is our sacred duty to warn Democrats against any faction which has for its mission a spirit deceitful and dangerous. If, as is claimed by some, its object is to divide the Radical party, then, in God's name, why does it dart its fire in our faces, when we say that it is a Republican paper? If Radicals desire to subscribe to the principles of Democratic papers, we have two already in this county. If its object is to defeat the Radicals at the polls, wc assure it that every Democrat will labor for this result. No, Democrats, this is not the real mission of the Columbian. We have never been spiritualists, we are not sensationalists, we could not bo alarmists,but we feel called upon to state "a fact, which fact is, that in the year of our Lord, 18CG, in Columbia County, an evil spirit, in the shape of a newspaper, has been let loose in our midst. The existence of this spirit (the Columbian) imperatively demands of us a few wor Js of description, and a few words of warning. Alas, that wo are compelled to warn the people of this county again?t this exist ing evil. IU boast was, in starting, that it would advocate and adhere to the principles of no part j ; that it would labor to demoral ize and distract Radicalism J yet its chief business from its first number until now, has been to abuse, criticise and aim its poisonous darts at the Democrat and Star, as if wc were the only and inveterate enemies of the Democracy. Under a Lhtnh banner it al ready assumes to control the hearts, to shape the actions, anil aims to sway the destinies, of the Democratic party. Itttirsup "strife between brethren," it divides a " hou-e against itself; " it causes ceaseless and pernicious political agitation ; it is a deceitful, fair-seeming and smooth-talking sheet, when if so suits its purpose ; it prates of "science" and "enlightenment," and not unfrequently arrogates to itself tho title of "the Spirit of the Age." Like Satan, it will not serve, but must rule, even though it also rain. It is full of deception, hatred and lust of power ; its real nature resembles that of a crouching and blood thirsty tiger, though it does occasionally, for its wily end3, assume that of the mag nanimous and lordly lion. It is deter mined to steal the liver'- of heaven to do the work of hell. And like the Father of all Evil, quotes sacred doctrines to accomplish its wicked purposes. Such Democratic friends, is a brief, but not over wrought de scription of the Columbian. The sooner it drops the bird of contention and ceases its inroads upon the Democratic party, the better it will be for it, and the sooner we will cease to pk-k its feathers. Let it be re membered, that they that inflict the pen ance must bear a full share of its burdens. If it seeks the downfall of Radicalism, let it cease to divide and distract the Democrat ic party; for it thereby cripples the resources of the party, and strikes a blow at its general interests. In injuring a part, it dis tresses the who'e. Wounding a member, weakens the body. A policy that paralyzes the energies, that offends the pride, that disturbs the industrial sphere of a party, is an impediment in the path of its progress, and a drag upon its agencies of prosperity. Let it be strictly remembered that if Demo crats engage in this work of the Columbian they will inflict penalties and do violence to the foundations of the Democratic party. They will undermine the fabric under which they are sheltered. Let our mission be, to remove all traces of strife ; let the record of contention be effaced, and for the sake of success and self-respect, let us at least avoid a continual brooding over un pleasant features. Surely the Democracy of tltis county will sustain the efforts of true friends to keep the party united and strong. They will, most assuredly, frown down an attempt to build up a new faction in our midst. Only six months ago the Democrats of this county were burdened with, and complaining of, a surplus of newspapers which kept up con stant strife, bickerings and contentions in our party, and by the unanimous approval of tho part j' the disease wa3 successfully combatted by the consolidation of the Dem ocrat and Star, and we tincerely hope and confidently anticipate, for the good of the party, that its re-appearance will take no serious phase. The Democrats have once been wearied out with it. and we re spectfully Fubmit that we have had quite enough of it Who can doubt the decision of the people ? What Changed Curtin. The fanatics and disunionists. are making no little fuss over the fact that Governor Ccrtix has swung round is now warmly ap plauding Stevens and other abolition trai tors. Curtin some two months since when in this place was a warm friend of President Johnson. Afthat time he expected an appointment as Minister Plenipotentiary, to Italy, and because he did not get that posi tion, now turns on the President, and like the whole pack of disappointed office seekers, eases his disappointment by vilifying him. So great was his anxiety for the ap pointment, that he requested a Democratic friend of ours to ask us to say nothing through the Watchman, in regard to his position as a friend of tho President, for fear the radical papers would raise a howl about it, and the fanatics in the Senate refuse to confirm his appointment if made. He as serted positively that it "was only Stevens and that class of men who were keeping our country divided and in trouble. These are facts and we stand prepared to prove than. bo the radicals can tnank JonNsoN lor hav ing Ccrtin on their side. Had he got the position he wanted, he would be what they now style, a "Copper-Johnson" politician. Such arc the principles of Andhew Cua TlS.BeUeonte IValchman. ' Letter from Hop. W. H. Jacoby. Bloomsburo, August 10, 18CG. HntAM A. SCinVEPPENlIEtSER, Esq., Deaf Sir : Understanding that there is a report in circulation through the county, to the effect that Col. Levi L. Tate, during the late session of the Legislature, or at any other time, wrote a letter to me at Harris burg, urging the passage of a law, author izing the widening of Market Street, in the town of Bloomsburg, at the expense of the tax-payers of the County, I have only to say, that the report is false in every particular and vutlumt foundation in fact. To the best of my knowledge, he neither wrote mo on that or-any other subject, nor signed any petition asking for the law in question. Hoping these few lines may set at resf this report, and thereby do simple justice to Mr. Tate, I remain, as ever, your friend, and ob't. scrv't, W. H. Jacoby. Note. I had fondly hoped that this an cient buff-bear, of over ten years standing, to which I have ever been opposed, had vamoosed, and gone to the "tombs of the Capulets. ' But not so, for it will be seen by the above correspondence, " Monscur lonson" Juts come again. And if Mr. Rep resentative Jacoby's letter will not give it its final quietus, tho public are referred to tho fact that near five 3'ears ago, I printed a Card, over my proper signature, averring,as I again declare, that that wrong shall never be committed upon the Tax-payers, while I live in Columbia County, whether in or out of the Legislature. Levi L. Tate. August 22. 1SGG. " Consistency a Jewel." The people of tho Philadelphia Conven tion were called together for tho purpose of endorsing tho principle that all " loyal" Representatives of the people should be ad mitted to Congress, and that all persons who could endorse the principles contained in the call for the Convention, and were du ly elected delegates should be admitted to saats in the Convention. Yet, what is call ed the Conservative Delegation from this, and every other State sending such Delega tion, voted unanimously in their committee rooms to expel the Hon. C. L. Valandicj ham, should he claim a scat in said Conven tion. Yet, Valandigham had been duly and unanimously elected by a regularly ap pointed conference of his constituents, for the purpose of representing them in the Convention. It was this Radical, revenge ful and mercenary spirit which caused the withdrawal of Valandigham and Fernan !o Wood. Did not the Convention stultify itself? Will not this action be recorded in history as a lasting, dark and damning blot upon its character ? No one disputed, to one doubted his regular, orderly, and unani mous appointment by his constituents, and that he endorsed earnestly every principle contained in the call, the following letter containing hid withdrawal will show : Giraud House, Philadelphia, August 14, lst3G. j To tlie Ciainnan of tJie National Union Convention : Sir : I have this day received from the National Union Committee, through the Hon. William S. Groesbeck, Chairman (f the Joint Ohio Delegation to" your Conven tion, a ticket of admission as a Delegate from that State. The Hon. Geo. W. Cook, Chairman of tho Democratic Delegation from Ohio, has also communicated to me the following resolution, this morning adopt ed by that delegation : " Resolved, Unanimously, by the Ohio Democratic Delegation, that we recognize the right of Clement L. Vallandigham, a duly elected delegate from the Third Con gressional District of Ohio, to hold a seat in Convention ; that we should regard his ex clusion from such teat as an unjust and in fringement of the rights of the Democracy of said district, and are ready to stand by him in the assertion of his rights, and tie right of his eon-titucnt ; that we endor.-e cordially the purity and patriotism of his motives, and hii fitness every way to sit in said Convention ; yet, for the sake of har mony and good feeling in the same, and in order to secure the great ends for which it is called, we consent to his withdrawal from the delegation, and from a seat in the Con vention, if, in his judgment, his duty to his constituents shall justify such with drawal." Yielding my own deliberate convictions of duty and richt to the unanimous opinion am tlcsire ot menus whose wisdom and soundness of judgment, and sincerity and purity of motives, I may not question, to the end that there shall be no pretext, even from any quarter, for any controverted ques tion or disturbing element in the Convention to mar its harmony, or hinder in any wav tho good results to the cause of the Consti tution, the Union and public litV-rty, which shall follow irom its deliberations and its action, 1 hereby withdraw from the Ohio Democratic delegation, and decline taking my scat in the Convention. I am profound ly conscious that the sanctity and the mag nitude of the interests involved in the pres ent political canvass in the United States, are too immense not to demand a sacrifice of every personal consideration in a struggle upon the jssue of which deiends, as I sol emnly believe, the present jeace and ulti mately the existence of free republican gov ernment upon this continent. Trusting that your deliberations may be harmonious, your proceedings full of the spirit of wisdom and patriotism, and its re sults crowned with a glorious and a saving triumph in the end of the great cause in which every sympathy of my heart is en listed, I am, very respectfully, &c, C. L. Vallandigham. Soldiers' Bounties. While Governor Fenton is doing all in his power to prevent the restoration of the Union, for which the soldiers fought, he is certainly ahead of most of the " loyal" Governors in having the claims of New York soldiers collected free of charge. This is a noble, manly, and generous act of Gov. Fenton, towards the brave soldiers, and should be followed up by every Governor in tho United States. If Andy Curtin would do as much for the soldiers of Pcnns3dvania there would at last be one excuse for his con stant boast " I am the soldier's friend." Let Gov. Fcnton's example be imitated at once, and it will put an end to the enormous and excessive charges made by many claim agents, to take from the poor soldier his hard earned money. We clip the following from the New York Evening Post : " In addition to Major Wm. W. Post. New York military agent at Albany, and Lieutenant-Colonel J. E. Lee, New York military agent at Washington, Governor Fenton has directed Brigadier-General Chas. W. Darling, of his staff, whoso office is at 544 Broadway, in this cirr, to receive and forward to the agency at Washington, free of charge, all claims for additional bounty due New York soldiers. Information will be furnished on application at tho above named office, personally or by letter. tCS- The Democratic party has always been successful when strictly adhering to the Doc trines of Jefferson and Jacks on.
