."Absurd. The new paper published
at the ''Columbian" office opposes Col. Tate,
the choice of the Democracy, and yet, in an
editorial article under the above healing,
admits that he was. nominated."," Consist

v BvDr. P. II. Freeze and Col. Levi L.
Tate addressed the Democratic Club at this
place on Saturday evening last The meet
ing was well attended, and the speeches well
received. . -
i SSf Democrats, and the pnblic generally,
are invited to attend the Democratic Meet

cratic meeting, held, at C. Shuman's, in
Beaver Valley, was addressed by Col. Tate
and E. R. Ikeler. The meeting was well at
tended. Beaver will do well The radicals
"will stand a poor show in Beaver Township.

not been assessed, that if they desire to vote
they must be assessed at least ten days
Zeforethe election, which will be Saturday
the29thof September. Let every Dem
ocratic voter, who has not attended to this
important duty, -do soat once. Don't neg
lect it another day.
".JEST On last Saturday Mr. Gordner, of i
Catawisaa,- presented us' with a specimen of
his Concord grapes. They were of the very
best quality The clusters were perfectly
healthy, very large and sweet-flavored. .We
understand Mr. Gordner is making a large
quantity of wine this season from the Con
cord grape He is well versed in Horticul
ture and in that business is surpassing most,
if not all othera ia this section of country.
;: JCS7 The Democrats of this County have
read and patronized the Democrat and
Star for over twenty-five years,' and have
never been lead astray or deceived through
bad advice.- The people, the Democracy,
"will yet continue to' have confidence in its
teachings, notwithstanding the' many false
hoods circulated by intriguing and scheming
politicians against it3 editors for the purpose
of damaging its influence, v
tSJ Fire. "We learn that the Machine
Shop tear Itapert Station, erected, some
years ago by .Lewis; H. Mans, of this place,
W33 destroyed by fire on Sunday evening last,
consuming all its contents. It waa being
used for a stores ge room, stable, tc -There
"were two horses in it at the time, a lot of
Reapers, and other implements, all of which
were consumed. The loss is estimated at
twelve thousand dollars. It is thought to
have been the work of an incendiary One
of the horses was a very valuable animal-
Wooded, dark Lay mare. ; " " '.
The Old Satin a. -"Great cry and little
wool" can't be applied to the Philadelphia
Geary-Douglas convention, for it was usher
ed in with a great cry and has turned out
all wool. : -
Democratic Meeting. On Monday eve
ning last, the Democracy of Centre Town
ship, were addressed - by Colonel John G,
Freeze, of this place. The Colonel makes
a good speech ; and the people of the county
are always pleased to hear him. The De
mocracy of Centre are fairly aroused in the
cause of the Union, Constitution and Laws.
Vermont Election. The Democratic
gains in Vermont are over, five per cent, at
the late State election. This is certainly
cheering. It must be remembered that the
Democracy have never carried a State ticLet
in Vermont This being the fact, it makes
our large gains in mat quarter uouoiy en
couraging to the Democracy.
jfgy Messrs. Jos. II. Campbell and John
McVilliams, in their "Address," published
in the "Campaign," in speaking of the Sen
atorial Conference, at Bloomsburg, say, that
" Mr. , Chalfant on his part was prevented
from attending the "Contention', by sick
ness, &c. This, perhaps, was unlucky for
him, as the "contention" has hugely in
cased since that unfortunate hour.
EB- Wonder whether the editor of the
Danville Intelligencer knows which side of
the question he ' faVors as between himself
and Tate? In one place in his paper we
read that "the claim of Montour county was
as strong if not stronger than that of Colara
bia" for Senator.. In another place he, with
quite as much distinctness and much more
honssty, say3: " Columbia county should at
this time have had the candidate for Stite
&3" Dr. John, of the Repuhlicav, is ex
ceedingly gleeful over the fight which the
Pipe-layers in this county have inaugurated
on the Representative question. He seems
to be cheek by jowcl with them ; but it will
be discovered that the efforts of all destruc-
tionistsv in this case, will be futile ; and the
Democracy of the District will sternly re
buke them, by giving Col. LeviL. Tate an
JK5" Unfortunate, that the great Dem
ocratic Party of Columbia county cannot be
controlled by two or three men. You sec, a
party could be so much more easily managed
in this way. But CoL Tate and the Demo
cratic Convention don't see it in that light
The Democracy of the county, ' will, just
now, do a little managing for itself.
JE3- Hon. Levi L. Tate and Elijah R
Ikeler, E;--q., addressed a meeting of the De
mocracy at Jones', in Mount Pleasant Town
ship, on Friday evening last Owing to the
inclemency of the weather and the short
notice, there was but a small turn-out.' How
ever, those present were very enthusiastic in
the cause of Democracy, and promised a good
return from Mt" Pleasant, for the "ticket,
the whole ticket, and nothing but the ticket"
A small fiction here are putting out
a Ccimpain paper in the interest of Capt.
Chalfant, who is supported by the Pipe
layers of Columbia and Montour. He is
their candidate for Representative, and they,
not the pcojle, support him against the choice
of the Democracy of this County for Repre
sentative? The Democracy of Columbia will

the nominee. His election is sure. The
people of this county will look to theiVown
interests and not allow intriguing, scheming
and dishonest politicians manage their af
tSff Mr. Thomas Chalfant, the candidate
of the Pipe-layers for Representative, and
who lives in Danville, and publishes a paper
there, and who is, by-thc-by, a very amiable
gentleman, announced in his last paper, with
a slight degree of pomposity, that he would
meet the people of Columbia county at as
many points as possible, previous to the
election-, and explain to them howlt was
that they were cheated out of the. Senator.
Mr. Lhallaut did come to tluj county, and
attended a large meeting at Oiangevillc,
where himself, Mr. Buckaicw, and Captain
Erockway, made speeches. JJut not a shu;lc
icord of explanation did he ojjerl I tin
tidi but I didn't conquer.
C, Democrats, into whose hands the
new half-sheet, called the C'lmpaijn, msy
happen to fall, will be astonLhed to observe
that it does not soy one icord in favor of
Judge Elucell, the Democratic candidate for
congress ! This is strange lor a Democratic
CAMPAIGN paper. If the new paper in
tends to oppose Jude Ilhrell, why don't it
say so honestly, in the first issue. Wonder
if the new concern is not simply a Chalfant
orcan, instead of a Dtfmo'-Mati'i pap r? No
dodging, Mcssr. Editor, ar.d Proprietors!
jfr The Radicals had a meeting on 3Ion-
day night at the Hall, in this rtace. Son
General vras to make a speech, but he didn't
come. JL hereupon, there vras general indig
nation. But Dr. Brower, of Danville, was
present, and took the stand. He spoke, sny
fifteen minutes. Then the immaculate Beck-
ley, him of the Post Oluce and the rope,
stood up. Time, five minutes. Others fol
lowed, but the thing rrew "email by degrees
and LeautnuIIy Jes. J he iJanu was the
only useful innredient in the concern. The
whole affair lasted about half an hour.
JCGT" The "Pipe-layers hare been talking
about the discontinuance of subscribers to
our paper. Of course discontinuances hap
pen at ALL times and we print the append
ed letter to show now they happen. We
have received at least five new subscribers
for every ONE that ha3 left us through the
influence of the Pipe-layers. Bat Mr. Mer
riSeld b not one of the latter :

attending it, make it necessary that 1 shall
