-"A Slander Repeated."
- The Columbian is very indignant that "we
ehould. refer to the wide-spread and reitera
ted report of the drunkenness of the Pres-
' jdent and certain United States Senators.
"We haye only to remind the motley crowd
who Erarround that curiously accommodating
journal, in the oQce of which was printed
that long-to-be-remembcred and extraordi
nary paper, the Campaign, the columns of
which gave immortality to the "Whiskey
Brigade, we say that we hare only to re
mind this crowd, of one or two old adages ;
euch as, "curses, like chickens, come home
to roost"; "peorle who live in glass houses
should not throw stones" ; &c. We believe
that the "Whiskey Brigade" has the abili
ty; and we knew that it has the spunk, to
defend itself, and there shall be " an eye for
an eye and a tooth for a tooth" until satis
faction shall be had for the ecnndalous,
senseless, and useless inuendoes contained
in the Campaign. It is true the Campaign
ii dead, but its slanders, and the effect of
these slanders upon certain members of our
community, still live.
We - made no charges of drunkenness
against tha President " and some imaginary
Members of Congress", -as stated in the
Columbian ; we only alluded to current re
ports; and this was done mainly for the
purpose of showing the Democratic Stand
ing Committee of Columbia County, and
the numerous Democrats who had signed
the Address, asking for the nomination of
CoL Tate, and who have been styled the
"Whiskey Brigade,""in Mr. Little's Cam
paign, that the "Whiskey" force in Colum
bia County, possibly, does not stand alone
that according to "current i amor there are
gentlemen in Washington, and who go to
Wasmngton, wno are as valorous as we,
and whose countenances are not likely to
pale in the presence of that' inevitable and
,veteran commander, "Old. Bourbon."'
t- The high prices demanded for all the
necessaries of life are awakening public sen
timent in regard to this important matter.
There is no reason why prices should contin
ue to advance, in the face of unexampled
prosperity in every department of business.
Men of moderate incomes find it a difficult
matter to meet the increased rates, while
those who depend upon their daily labor for
support are scarcely able to provide the com
mon comforts which, are needed for stheir
families.' Winter, with its ?igor3, is fast ap
proaching, and prices are going up instead
of falling as they should do. Now that the
election is over, afl the patriots of the na
tion have time enough to attend to tho ac
tual want3 of the people, let a prompt and
decided ' movement be inaugurated to lower
the scale of prices to such a standard as will
enable the poor man to secure, without em
barrassment, the ordinary necessaries of life.

place, have as yet made no demonstrations
towards getting up a grand jubilee over the

SyThe Radicals are very sanguine in
being able to force the South to accept the
Rump Constitutional Amendments at the
next Session "of Congress. This we have
rery great doubts about We hardly know
how they will be able to accoinplbh this,
but in the event they fail, their plan is to
prevent the South from having any repre
sentation in Congress, and if possible to
stove the matter off till after the election of
another President, that they (the South)
may have no voice in the next Electoral
College. This they cannot do, if the Pres
ident maintains his firmness and all law
abiding and Union-loving people stand by
S3- Governor Swann, of Maryland, is
giving the Radicals a great deal of trouble.
He is a bird of their own hatching, and the
nest in which he is now brooding was the re-ftult-
of their own clever handiwork. His
failure td follow them in all their tortuous
paths and windings has occasioned them in
tense suffering, but it is very, evident that he
intends to "pursue the even tenor of his
way," unmindful of the agony his course
may give them, and remain boldly .resolute
in his vigorous defense of the rights of his
State. . . . .

Hon. Win. Elwell.
This staunch Democrat, and accomplished
jurist, has been defeated for Congress in the
13th Congressional district We rhost: sin
cerely regret this result, on account of the
sober qualities which he would have brought
into the councils of the nation in this hour
of our country's need. The eminent talents
which he has brought to the performance of
his judicial functions, and the unostentatious
devotion to thepublic good, has made him
honored and beloved wherever he is known.
Over his whole life, intelligence, integrity
and patriotism have shed their combined
lustre. Possibly he might have been elect
ed had he resorted to the same dishonorable
conduct which has characterized otherjudges
in this canvass. When he was placed in
nomination he was a judge ; and part of his
judicial district was a part of the congress
ional district also. He gave notice immedi
ately to his friends who placed him in nom
ination, that in his judicial district he would
make no speechos, and would take no part
in the political strife. This he strictly ad
hered to during the canvass, not because
his great arguments . aud fervid thoughts
would nor have had a powerful influence
with the people: but because he believed a3
all honest and pure minded jurists have done
in the past, that a decent respect for them
selves, as weli as a desire to occupy a posi
tion for impartial judgment, thould prevent
a judge frpui dabbling in the dirty pool cf
politics.. Judge ElvveH, though defeated,
has come out of this contest as he has come
out of other fiery trials of his life, a pure
and elevated public Eervant We most sin
cerely regret that any man who has by acci
dent, or luck, bean elevate 1 to a seat on the
bench, should soil the judicial ermine by
playing the demagogue at school-house
meetings, or disgrace the position by ped
dling votes among the fume of whiskey and
tobacco on election day. Herald of the
Union, Wellsboro, Ta.
The Combat Thickens.
The contest for United States Senator is
waxing warm among the Radicals. The as
pirants for that distinguished honor are mar
shaling their forces, and endeavoring to bring
all their personal influence to bear upon the
struggle. The two prominent candidates arc
Governor Curtin and General Cameron, and
we think it safe to predict that one or the
other will be the drawer of the successful
prize. Governor Curtin has great popularity
with the masses of his party, while General
Cameron possesses considerable strentrth
with the managers. Our editorial brother,
who is so fond of making inflammatory
speeches from the upper window of his
sanctum, at the corner of Seventh and Chest
nut, has been completely distanced in the
race, and is now turning his undivided at
tention to military matters in Baltimore.
Snuffing the battle afar off, he has donned
his regimentals, and will no doubt lead a
squadron to glory when the project of
drenching the streets of the Monumental
City .with blood is carried into execution.
3Ir. Butler, of Massachusetts, and the gal
lant Schenk, of Ohio, are with him in this
fight, and prodigies of valor may bo expect
ed from this famous trio of military heroes.
In the meantime, the Senatorial battle is
being fought with daily increasing vigor in
Pennsylvania. As calm observers of the
struggle, we will faithfully chronicle all the
movements of the rival chieftains, and
cep our readers " booked up" in all the
details of the Kilkenny fight that is now
ragiog with violence among the victorious
Radicals of the old Keystone. Age of the
E?TA The Columbian, seems loath to give
up brother ikeler, and saj-s, no one else
connected with the Democrat and Star could
have written all tho absurdity and frantic
folly contained in tha last number." It is
true there were some plain facts published
in our last, which no doubt caused some of
tho persons to whom they ar-nlbd to become
frantic," and after a time, in their cooler
moments, look back, with sorrow, upon their
"folly." In order to satisfy the Columbian
tribe that "brother" Ikeler has retired from
the "editorial management" of this paper,
it may be necessary that he leave the County.
As senior editor of thn paper, we believed
we are about as closely connected with the
establishment as any man we know of, es
pecially the Columbianites, and when we say
that "brother" Ikeler has not written , a
line for the Democrat and Star, editorially
or otherwise, since his sale and retirement
as one of the editors, we state nothing but
the truth. Therefore don't accuso " broth
er" Ikeler of writing any of the "absurdity
and frantic folley" as you would choose to
call it, which has appeared in oar. paper for
the last month or more.

lazy, good-for-nothing fellows, hanging about
the Government, ready to take fat positions,
in the event of another war. They, too are
trying to bring on another clash of arms.
When the war stopped, the occupation of
these army thieves, bummers and political
preachers, ceased. They could no longer
skulk along in the rear of the army and com

hundreds of these army pimp3 and schies
