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
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

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.

Letter from Hop. W. H. Jacoby.
Bloomsburo, August 10, 18CG.
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.

" 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
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. Success u
certain this Fall."
