" The Ticket.
We run to our mast head to-day, the
ticket placed in nomination, by the county
convention on Monday last. That it will
- give general satisfaction, to the Democracy
and the people of the county every body be
lieves. Since 'vre have taken part in politics
we have never known a convention to pass
off a3 harmoniously as did the one that pla
ced in nomination the ticket wo present to
day, nor have we ever seen unlucky candi
dates for the different positions, more deter
mined to do all in their power to Eecure an
overwhelming majority, for their successful
competitors. To say that the ticket is the
lest tha"CouId be formed, would bo casting
a slur upon the many good men whose names
were used in the convention but were not
chosen as candidates ; but when we say that
on the whole, a better or if stronger ticket
could not have been made, we are not saying
a word too much. Every man upon it is ca
pable, honest, strait forward and deserving
faithful democrats and honest, honorable
citizens. They cannot fail to fill the differ
ent positions for which they have been chos
en, with credit to themselves, their country
and the party that supports them.
. .We do not intend, as has heretofore been
customary, to enter into the special lauda
tion of each candidate. What can be Baid
of one can be said of all, and the peculiar fit
ness of each one for the positien to which ho
has been chosen, is admitted, by every one,
even by the bitterest enemies our party has.
Not only as candidates, are they qualified to
fill the various offices for which they have
been selected, but as citizens, they are with
out a stain upon their characters, or a blot
upon their political records as Democrats.
To them, we point with pride as the stan
dard bearers of our grand old party, in the
campaign which has now opened. They are
the representatives of a party whoso aim is
to advance tbo interest of the white man,
whose care is to protect the rights of the
white man, and whose great object is to pre
serve this, a government of white men.
.Around them will rally every voter in the
county who believes he was born superior
to the ignorant and degraded African.
Around them will rally every voter who fa
vors low taxes, economy in public expendi
tures, honest officials, and competent men to
fill public places. .
And now that the Democracy have a ticket
in the field a ticket that is in every respect
worthy their confidence and support let
them go to work. They must not rely upon
the popularity of individual candidates, nor
be satisfied with half an effort, because our
opponents are weak, or the certainty of suc
cess beyond a doubt. We have more to do
in this county than simply elect our county
ticket, we have to aid in the election of an
honest Governor, and a Congressman who
will do something for white men, whose
interests are at stake, and whose time will
not all be spent in legislating for niggers,
contractors, and public plunder. If the
Democracy of this county but do their duty
we honestly believe they can roll up a majority
of eighteen hundred for Uiestxb, Cltmeb,
the white man's candidate, and for the whole
ticket from Congressman down. Shall it be
done ? Or shall we be content with the mea
ger majority of fourteen hundred? It is
for you, Democrats, to say. Never was there
such an opportunity for striking a death
. blow to abolitionism in this Bection of the
State. Never were the prospeeta as bright
for an overwheliaingvictoiy. Shall we have
it to rejoice over T Work and tcork only will
. secure it ?. ' ' ;

Hon. William lvell.
This distiagaLshed individual needa ttO
eulogy from us, but, as we are now expected
to advocate the claims of the people of this
county for men whom they desire shall rep
resent them in the councils of the nation,
the Hon. William Elwili. highly deserves
a place in the group. That he is the unan
imous choice of the people of this Congres
sional District for Congress, there is no longer
a shadow of a doubt. And it is equally evi
dent' that he is the most worthy) "popular,
and influential man in the District, and will
accept the nomination. lie is'distinguished
for his legal acquirements and acumen, and
for his broad and comprehensive mind as a
judge, jurist and statesman. Unfortunately
for this Republic, selfish ambition has had
too much to do with the selection of men to
fill positions which require statesmen ; and
too often there is not sufficient regard for
that truthfulness and consideration for the
welfare of others, which should animate the
servants of the State. That these elements
of character are combined, in the subject of
ojjr notice, is a fixed fact with all who know
him. Not a mere pettifogger, who quibbles
and quarrels, but with his broad and com
prehensive intellect he is enabled, with a
moment's notice, to grasp public questions,
and to suggest such measures as may be
necessary for the improvement of the people
and the development of the country.
Therefore, we say, that in the person of the
Hon. 'William Elwell, we have all the
requirements necessary to draw, hastily and
correctly, nice distinctions, to come to correct
conclusions, and to see that justice is done
by nations and by individuals. We say,
again, that he has the intellectual power to
grasp, at a single glance of the mind, the
truth in relation to a subject, to comprehend
the interior essence of things, and, therefore,
he will make the best statesman. With his
unsupassed popularity, and influence, wher
ever known, which is necessary to secure his,
or any other man's election in this District,
we say, let him be nominated without
We Stoop to Conquer.
The brigadier of the Columbian, who,
from the first has been making personal as
saults upon the junior editor of the Demo
crat and Star, has at last gotmad and like
a whipped school-boy, when a trifle of his
coin is returned to him, came out in last
week's Columbian, with nearly two columns
of stuff, consisting of low criticisms, trans
parent falsehoods, personal abuse, baby act
pleading and child-like calling of names, em
inently characteristic of the sheet in its pov
erty of intellect and sense, but a species of
journalism which the junior editor of the
Democrat and Star docs not propose to
imitate. From the beginning, the Colum
bian, has maintained this sort of warfare and
personal abuse upon the junior editor of this
paper, with all the malignity and vigor the
trifling ability connected with the concern
could afford, and with a littleness seldom
seen in any paper, it attempts to show its
wit by fibbing and blubbering about a few
typographical errors which unobserved ap
peared in our paper, and which could have
been corrected a thousand times did we not
give more original matter in our paper than
the Columbian contains. With some regard
for his feelings, and pity for his want of
sense, we again admonish him that it requires
a larger capital stock of "brains, than he pos
sesses to become a wit, and that the profes
sion of blackguardism which he seems to
have adopted is frequently attended with
such cuffs and kicks as will not only set him
howling but will prove his utter ruin. The
denunciation of the Democrat and Star,
and the junior editor, by the Columbian, are
fully appreciated by us, by our readers, and
by the public. That paper does not, and
cannot wgue a question or discuss a princi
ple ; and, it is therefore much easier and more
in conformity with the intellectual capacity
of that concern to denounce us and our pa
per, then to disprove its statements or refute
its arguments ; but we take no pleasure in
exposing the Columbian t stupidity or reply
ing to its silly squibs.
On last Monday the Democratic Conven
tion of this county, nominated the Hon.
Levi L. Tate, for State Senator, with a
resolution, directing the Conferees to use all
honorable means to secure his nomination,
by the District Conference. It is certain that
CoL Tate, was deserving this honor. Hav
ing served the Democratic Party earnestly,
as an editor and public speaker, for a period
of over thirty years, it was only a spontane
ous tribute of the people to his honesty, ca
pacity and fidelity. He is very favorably
known, not only in the District, but through
out the State served faithfully in our State
Legislature, as a Democratic champion of
liberty, when it was considered treason by
our political opponents who were then in
power, to be a Democrat he is very popular
among the people on account of his high so
cial standing, and for having aided the De
mocracy largely with both pen and voice in
every political contest since 1836. The De
mocracy of this District can do no greater
credit to themselves than to confirm the
nomination of Mr. Tate, and we feel sure
that he will receive such a vote as his labors
Exemptions. We see by our exchanges
that the amended Revenue Law makes some
important exemption. Although we have
seen no official announcement of the fact, it
is stated that all printed, matter is exempt,
such as papers, books,' pamphlets, cards,

Soldiers' National Convention.
The call for a Soldiers' National Conven
tion to be held at Cleveland, Ohio, appear
ed in most of our exchanges. It is to be
composed of those who served in the Army
and Navy of the United States during the
war, and who support the Union policy of
the President The seventeenth of Septem
ber is appropriately appointed as the day on
which the Convention shall assemble, that
being the anniversary of the adoption of the
We have no doubt the Radicals would like
to apply to those whose names are attached
to this call the epithets which their unscru
pulous maKce has applied to all other true
friends of the Constitution and the Union.
But they will hardly venture to make them
selves so ridiculous. The names attached to
the call are such as must command at least
the respect of the Radicals. The men who
here speak for the supremacy of the Con
stitution and the restoration of the Union are
no "pipe-clay soldiers" or "home guards."
They are nearly all of them officers who won
high distinction on the battle-field : and big
oted as radicalism is, there cannot be one of
its advocates so blinded by passion as not to
feel that if he should ascribe to the signers
of this call the sentiments which have been
designedly ascribed to other opponents by
the Radical press, like Dogberry, he would
"write himself down an ass."
The large number of Generals and other
officers of high rank who have united in this
call have performed a duty to themselves as
well as to their country. It was, as they
doubtless felt, a duty they owe to their coun
try to unite in the movement to restore the
Constitution to its former supremacy, and
they owed it to themselves to take the ac
tion they have in order to let the country
understand that they have nothing in com
mon with the malign spirit or disunion her
esies which form the Radical creed. The
call shows that they understand the ob
ject of the misrepresentation and clamor in
which the enemies of restoration indulge,
and are not to be diverted from their sup
port of the restoration policy by the sophis
tries or calumnies of the Radical di.sunioni.--ts.
The work goes bravely on, and the indica
tions are that at the coining elections the
men who have arrayed themselves against
the Union and sought and still seek to de
stroy the Constitution will be hurled from
power by the people.
BS? In a congratulatory letter addressed
to the Democratic State Central Committee
of Kentucky, Mr. Vallandigham says:
" Allow me to renew by mail the congrat
ulations this day transmitted by telegraph
upon the glorious victory achieved by the
Democracy of Kentucky yesterday. It was
the triumph of principle and courage. You
did not fear to re-establish and maintain the
Democratic party in all its integrity as an
organization, and to proclaim the old and
sound Constitutional Union and State ltisrhts
faith of the fathers of that party. You
were not afraid to invite to your aid men of
the . Democratic party at home, and from
abroad, who were odious to tyrants and the
apologists or minions of tyrants, only be
cause they had first made tyranny odious
itself. Truly and overwhelmingly, therefore,
the reaction begins to sat ia. The "Great
Hereafter" at last is at hand. But 'twas
not, as your foes asserted, a question of the
blue jacket against the grev, but of the grey
and the blue combined in holy fellowship, to
do battle and to win victory aeain.t the black
jacket of Puritan selfishness and fanaticism.

when the Constitution shall bo maintained,
the Union restored, and Constitutional lib

"Cominooutop ttie Foul Partt."
The Huntingdon Glole, heretofore a strong
Republican paper has taken down the
name of Geary. It speaks as follows :
" Before, and at the time Gen. Geary was
nominated, and since then, and up to the is
sue made by the Harrisburg Telegraph, that
''the larger Geary1 major'ty, the sterner will
be the rebuke administered to Andrew John
son,' we were his friend, but we could not
feel certain at any time that his election was
sure, because one fact pressed upon us, that
the Radicals would use and abuse him. And
now that we have taken our position with
tho National Union J 'arty we cannot expect
him as the nominee of the Union Republi
can party to stand upon our platform of
principles, we take his name down from our
mast-head, and will have the place vacant
until a candidate is nominated who will en
dorse the platform of our party. We could
support Geary asoldier, asa man, as a friend,
but we cannot support him as the candidate
of the Radical Republican party. No friend
of Andrew Johnson can vote for General
Geary. No sensible man, a true friend of
Johnson's policy can restore this Union, can
vote for Geary and by so doing aid the Radi
cals in passing an insulting judgment upon
Andrew Johnson. Other men can. and will
do as they please, but as for ourself we shall
act consistent with our professions."
Tiie Extra Bounty:. There appears to
be great trouble at Washington about the
extra bounty recently voted to the soldiers by
Congress. The Paymaster General reports
thatne receives fifteen hundred applications
for this bounty per day, but is unable to do
anything more than to file them away for
future reference, as there are not any funds
in the Treasury not already appropriated,
and the Special Commission having the sub
ject of the payment of the extra bounty un
der consideration, have not yet reported. It
is the opinion in the Paymaster General's
Department that these claims cannnot be
adjusted for some months vet, and, in fact,
no form of application has oeen devised bv
the Department This being the case sol
diers can gain nothing by haste, but when
the exact operation of the law is ascertained

charge, and announced to the public, as it
no doubt will be, they can act more intelli
gently than now upon the subject

Extract of a Letter from John
' Frrrn Avenue Hotel, Aug.' 21,1806.
To the Editor f the New York News.
When the great J ulius in the Senate house
beheld a friend's dagger gleaming among the
conspirators he felt a poignancy in its wound
surpassing those of all the eleven, and the
deathless and pathetic reproach burst from
his lips et tu, Brute f And now it has
come to pass in these lato days that the
News, which has adhered so unflinchingly
to the lafe Southern cause, defying danger
and, more heroic, breasting a storm of
Sublio opinion turns upon the Southern
elegates to tho Philadelphia Convention,
with words of reproach, almost amounting
to scorn, of their trickling subserviency.
As a Southern man, as well as a delegate,
I feel impelled to take my pen to vindicate
my colleagues and the people they represen
ted against a charge so unjust and unfound
ed. That in a body so large there should be
found individuals amenable to your reproach
would not be strange. But one swallow does
not make a summer, and it is not fair to con
demn in the aggregate for the sins of units.
If there were Southern members in that
convention who so far forgot the dignity of
the suffering and misfortune which they rep
resented as to betray their high trust, and
to drag down the pride of reticence and en
durance to the level of humiliation, and you
choose to single them out for odious notori
ety and "bad eminence," it is not I who
would object Let slip your dogs and lay
on the lash to your heart's content. But I
insist that I and the body of my colleagues
shall be excepted both from the crime and
the punishment. Reflect on our position in
that convention. We were strange, though
politely-bidden guests in that grand council.
Wecanie there with no country, no flag, for
we are not permitted by Radicalism to have
either. The Government is only allowed to
recognize us when the tax-gatherer comes
along, or our enemies require the form .and
farce or our State action to fix a constitu
tional amendment to the prejudice of our
rights and interests. The inspiration of the
national music, the rustle of the national flag
vsosure to flutter and thrill the breasts of
true men who can call it their own none of
these arc for us ; for we have no vote or voice
in the Govcrnmentwhose power is emblemed
by the flag, and whoso glorious memories
are breathed in the national airs.
Reticence and dignity were the role for
men so situated. Not to make noi.-y com
plaints and frothy speeches, or to wrangle
about platforms ; but simply to say, as the
Narragansctt chief when summoned before
the British Colonial Council : "You have
sent for me, and I have come !" It is most
true that wo have received with cordial
greeting by the patriotic gentlemen who
were our political hosts. They listened to
us withdeepintcrestand respect. Old Dem
ocrats met us often with moist eyes and tremb
ling grasps of the hand. But at last we were
voiceless and powerless in the struggle that
was to determine the destinies of the country
the battle ground and the combatants were
all in the North, and all the dispositions for
the contest were necessarily to bo conform
ed to that fact. It is not neccessary to say
that, as a simple declaration of feelings,
wishes and principles, the platform and ad
dress would have been different, had they
been left exclusively to our writing, so had
the West penned them, the East would have
found something to change, and vice versa
but constructed as they were for the wholy
on that ba.is of compromise which must
ever be a vital clement of union between
States so remote geographically and so di
verse in pursuits and interests, it is difficult
to see how either resolutions oraddress could
have been better. Happily, the convention
escaped, through the magnanimity of sever
al delegates, the greatest danger to its integ
rity and harmony. The withdrawal of Messrs.
Yallandingham and AVood assured the suc
cess of the convention in this respect
I take the occasion to deny, with empha
sis, the statement in this morning's Herald,
that Mr. Vallandingham was notified by the
Southern delegations that if he did not qui
etly withdraw they would vote him out. It
is impossible to conceive a more odious and
damaging imputation upon Southern delega
tions than this. What ! turn upon a man
who hail suffered imprisonment, persecution
and exile for sympathizing with our suffer
ings and trials 1 If there was one wretch so
heartless from the South, I am happy to say
I did not and never wish to know him. My
own views and sense of duty were very clear,
and I believe they .were those of every South
ern gentleman in the convention. It was,
that we could not, in personal honor or con
science of our constituent, vote to unseat a
gentleman whose ri.srht to a seat was patent
ed to him by the gallant Democracy of'Ohio,
was as good as our own, and whose only disa
bility was that he was our 'friend in trouble.
Under the call for the convention he had a
clear right, for its theory was amnesty for
the past and fidelity to a common patriotic
object in the future. It was upon this the
ory that we of the South were there, and it
was foreign to the objects and fatal to the
effects expected to be produced, to begin the
work ofpeace and harmony by persecuting
and punishing for past political differences.
I would not, and could not have remained an
instant in that convention if any Northern
delegate like Messrs. Yallandingham or Wood
properly accredited, had been unseated by
vote. It was not the bonnuet to which we
were invited, and we should have gone home
with the reflection that the North is not yet
ready for peace and restoration. But hap
pily and nobly on their part, these gentlemen
saw the rock and removed it out of the path
of harmonious action. Tlie convention le
came a great success, and Northern gentle
nian tell me it is doing great good and work
ing well for the cause of reunion.
JCgyA radical journal thus speaks of Gen.
"He is a miserable demagogue, who can
only five in the shadow of greater and worse
men. He is nothing in himself. A die is
as good as the truth for him to t-tand on."
It would be interesting to contrast such
language as this with the panegyrics be
stowed by the whole Republican press upon
General Dix during the past five years.
They eulogized him as the greatest states
man and purest patriot in the county, but
because he won't follow them in their dis
unionism they forget even decency in their
tirades against him.
JCSf The New York Herald ridicules the
attempts of the radical leaders to blarney
adopted citizens, by going to their meetings
and pretending great friendship for them.
The Herald says :
" These old Know Nothings and Puritan
ical fanatics think they can come " the rich
Irish brogue" over our Irish fellow-citizens.
The idea of these negro-worshipping politi
cians of the Puritan New England school
pretending to have any lovo for Irishmen is
ruprcmcly farcical. This only shows to what
humbug and deception the Jacobin faction
will resort in their desperate efforts to save
JB3T It is reported from New York that

We take occasion to again call the atten
tion of our friends to the necessity of prompt
and decisive action in organizing our forces
for the coming fight The Fall elections for
members of Congress are most important,
and we must make every effort to carry in
these elections as many members of Con
gress as possible. The States of California,
Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana,, Kanas,
Maryland, Missouri, Delaware, Minnesota,
New Jersey, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylva
nia, and New York elect their Congressional
delegates this Fall. Out of the total number
to be elected there can be forty-five or fifty
gained by tho Democracy if v.r, go to
work in earnest and properly organize. We
must not hazard the great, the incalculable
benefit to be derived from this accession of
strength to the supporters of President
Johnson, by supineness or want of energy.
N e all know the value of energetic organ
ization, of prompt and decisive movements.
We therefore earnestly urge upon our friends
all through the country to advance at once to
the work to be firm and active as passible,
and to have meetings in every State, every
county, every township and voting precinct
iu the United States; and establish a work
ing and energetic organization which will
carry every Conservative votr into the ranks
of the supporters of President Johnson.
We urge the immediate attention of our
friends to this matter, and counsel them to
delay not a minute in the good work.
37 The tricks to which tho intriiuors of
.m m -
the Columbian resort are unworthj' of any
honest man. They have inaugurated
through its columns a system of the vilest
and meanest falsehoods, and most shameless
misrepresentations of our course, for the
very purpose of effecting a split in the Dem
ocratic party of this county. It is the very
thing they de.-irc and we told our Democrat
friends this long ago. It is the only thing
that will give them political power and a
chance for future success. Union and har
mony among the Democrats of this county
is death to the Columbian, and its .advisers
know it. Hence their struggle for a divi
sion in our ranks their false coloring and
their abuse of the Democrat and Star.
We bclievs that the Democratic party un
derstand themselves better than this Colum
bian can teach them, and they see that it is
a petty, dishonorable and unbecoming sheet,
deserving only of their condemnation, und
beneath their dignity and manhood.
tfiT It will be remembered that the Re
publican party, when it nominated Geary,
made the action of Congress its platform.
They endorsed all it had done as broadly as
they repudiated and denounced President
Johnson. Congress, then, is Geary's plat-
torm. lie must stand by all the RadicaL-
have done, and dare not repudiate a single
one of their corrupt or revolutionary acts.
Let this fact be remembered by the people
