WEDNESDAY- ..... ......DEO. 36, 1868.
This week closes my editorial career, in
Columbia County, for at least a number of
years. On the With of December, 18118, I
cold my entire interest in the Dimmanunit
DoweitaT to Capt. C. B. BROCK WAY, edi.
tor of the Columbian, of this town. The
two papers will be consolidated, first issue
appearing under the new arrangement on
Friday next, edited and coritrolled by tl
present manager and proprietor of the (!fif
unthion. It will appear under the title of
" The Columbian and Bloomsburg Demo
crat," greatly improved in its mechanical
arrangements and other meets. It is the
intention of the proprietor to spare no pains,
with the facilities alrerirly in his possession,
and yet to be acquired, to make this:piper
the neatest, best, and 'cheapest weekly in
the State. In size; it is decidedly the larg•
cat paper in the County, and in the State
there are few, if any, that surpass its di
mensions. It is ably and carefully edited,
and justly merits a liberal and hearty Hip
ped at the hands of the Democracy, Mr.
BROCKWAY is yet a young man, though a
gentleman of large experience for ono who
has lived so small a number of years, and
with his legal knowledge, coupled with his
political and newspaper experience, it is to I
be hoped that he will be able to publish
journal which will meet the expectations of
all, and take rank among the highest parcrs
in the State.
All prepaid subscriptions will be filled by
Mr. BROCKWAY ; credit having been ear
tied from our books to his in all eases where
the time itas nut expired for which the pa
ter Vas paid. If any mistakes have oe
curred, in making this trataer of credits,
they can be easily rectified by calling and
examining our books.
By some it may be enquired why Ibis
sale was wade, and the consolidation of the
two papers effected ; to which question them
are several answers, many of which are so
well understood by the Democracy of the
county that a full explanation is unneces
sary: In the first place, there is no neces
sity for t*o Democratic journals in this
town; in the second place, the Dun:wavy
of the county do not furnish patronage ktil
fieient to afford anything over and above a
decent livelihood for three publishers; and,
in the third place, I desire to disconnect
myself from the newspaper business at
present, that I might enjoy a little rest,
after eleven years of editorial life, and
settle and collect my accounts. if these
reasons are not sufficient, I will be pleased
to explain more fully to all who may call
upon me.
I had charge and control of the STAR 01.
me NORTII in 1857, prior to the death of
BRUM( WEavEn, EN., and in January,
1858, purchased the establishment at an
Administrator's rale. This was dune under
discouraging circumstances, the subscrip
tion list being less than three hundred, the
advertising and jobbing patronage sumll,
and myself a comparative stranger to the
people of the county. In less than a year,
with the assistance of my newly [(Noire('
friends, the subseripticrn more than doubled,
Ina the advertising patronage was made
quite tneouraging. Th ,, STAR was pub
lished by me for over four years without the
least interruption, until October 16th, 1862,
when ABRAHAM Liscomi "took us for a
soldier." Nut having plenty of "stamps,"
anti our friends mostly being in the same
fix, I concluded, as this was a short draft,
that I would close the office. 1 did to;
owl having no friends in Canada, entered
the army—served my time, got an honora
ble discharge, and wasn't Abolitionized in
the least.
In August, 180, I returned from the
army, revived the STAR and continued its
publication until February, ISK when the
purchase of the Columbia Democrat was
effected by E. 11. IKELEa, Esq., with whom
we formed a co-partnership, and consolidat
ed the two papers under the title of C)OL•
NORTH. This eo-partnership lasted some
seven months or more, when the interest of
Mr. IKELER was disposed of to JOBl4ll I'.
SKUMAN, whose connection with the paper
continued until January, 1867, After his
retirement the entire control and editorial
labors of the paper fell upon myself. This
change in the establishment naturally dis
jointed matters more or less; and at the
out-start of the second volume, after the
oonsolidation, while I had exclusive control,
the title was changed to that of BI.4IC3IS
nano. I have published the paper nearly
two years;. and during this time I have seen
some sunshine as well as cloudy weather.
The life of a newspaper editor is nut the
most pleasant under the best of circum
stances. With subscription and advertho
ing bills scattered all "over creation," mu
peahen, from the "Jour" down, crying for
copy, the Landlord and Express Agent at
the door knocking for admission to collect
t4ere is enough to dials I and drive
an editor to madness unless he *mos lin
Im'isinefrsble 4611. 'Then,' on the othbr
hand, partially to make up for all theme an
noyances sod perplesities,lh6 * ellibor ' d heart
is occasionally mode glad by the presenta
tion of baskets or strawberries, apples,
grapes, and at proper seasons s fat gobbler ;
besides, "free tickets" of admission to all
tho puppet shows that travel the country.
It will be seen, however, that all these pos
sess very little•of the substantial@ of life.
In parting with 'tlitiVireocuxr I do not
propose to leave the county. *Too wally of
my best days IMO been spent hervamong
the Dem . ocriny for tue to start lu aeltA'*of
a new deld 'of labor,
I shall overhold these 'with whuu I
have ac te d during pitst political struggles in
high remembrance, and it will be my gre-t
-est pleasure to be able, at some early day, to
reciprocate whatever of countenance and
favor I have received.
lftsGone up—the uhf Democrat has re
ally busted—its patrons will no longer hail
its appeanmee with smiling countenances.
The thing is virtually dead."—Republiot.
Can this "really" be so? that the old
DEmocnAv is dead ! 1/ho ever heard of
the Wag being bested I What does the
astute editor mean ? By some lieeple it
might be thought that the Demosthenes I,f
the RepolScan was trying to poke fun at
the retiring editor of this journal, but we
hope that is not the case. It would collie
with rather bad grace 'from that quarter.
The former editor of the &pub/icon made
an arnica to and satisfactory sale of his
office, just as we have done, and does it
naturally follow that he, too, is "busted"?
Sensible people in this end of town think
We have y4t to learn that the new editor
of the nrruf,+:'ena charged his prede
cessor with roguery" when he disposed of
his establishment. 0 no! there was no
"roguery" in that transaeion—it was legit
imate, honest and fair, and the whole Re
publican party were expected so to viva. it.
Whether they have done so the subscription
list of that paper might be taken as the best
evidence. Since the Rile Of the DDrocirxr
and its consolidation with the other Demo
eratic paper of this town, we have nut met
a single individual save the lhglcman of the
RepgUi c a a, who cx pmsed any aii tisfa e
tion with the arrangement or claimed that
WO owned him and had sold him out.
However much the "old Democrats" of
the county may have admired our paper fig
its consistent, independent and straight for
ward course, they never admitted that they
belonged to us, nor that we had any claims
upon them further than to expect from them
an honest and faithful support to the paper
as patrons. The Democrats of this county
are not yet ready to become ocerchandive nor
to be owned and controlled by one man or
and any set of men. For the Republierro
party we are unable to speak ; but we might
infer from what their editor prints in Iris pa
per, that the party to which he belong.. are
sold anti dealt with as merchandise." If
it is so, it is a bad state of affairs. Those
who make up that ;party are, then, hill jest
to become the property and dupes (if a very
great set of senumirds. The longest purse
then will always own them. Save us from
ever belonging to such a party.

last, President Johnson issued a proclama
tion granting, unconditionally and without
reservation, a full pardon and amnesty to all
persons who directly or indirectly rirtici
pated in the late rebellion. This includes
Jefferson Davis, John C. Breckinridgc, Ma-
son, Slidell, Jubal Early, Jacob Thompson,
and a number of other Confederate leaders
and agents who played a' prominent part in
the late war. The President selected . ' most
appropriate occasion for the publication of
this document, which returns to their !lonics
and fliends, so many exiles, and the act
will no doubt give satisfaction to a large
majority of the Northern us well as. the
Southern people: At the same time the
government is relieVed of the "great treas

likely to bring up unpleasant questions to
be decided.

TIIR "Reunion of the hffioors of the'Ar
rules of the West," at Chicago, culminated
in "a most disgracelhl scene. The "reunion"
was followed by a banquet, at which liquor
was used to men, and the "high-toned,
gentlemanly officers" drank to beastly in
toxioation, finally climbing upon the tables,
shouting, yelling and throwing the dishes at
each other. The Cincinnati Commercial
warns them against a repetition of such
scenes, if they wish their "reunions" to be
attended by their former distinguished gen
erals. These roysteriug drunkards are the
"loll" shoulder•strapped upstarts who were
too dignified to invite the rank and file to
share in their "reunion." Such is shoddy
aristocracy !
TWENTY•FIVE cEsts reward will be paid
to the person who will furnish a correct and
intelligible translation of the editorial in last
week's DEMOCRAT, entitled COOLi..-.Re
publioin of last week.
Into what language does the editor of the
Republican desire the article to be translat
ed? The negro dialect would probably suit
him best, but the editor of the DEMOCRAT
not being a proficient in that so-called lan
guage, and the editor of the Republican ev
idently not Onderstanding Reglish, the oiler
of a reward comes from an appropriate
quarter. Let the editor of the Republican
have the assistance of his fllembt, for he
evidently needs it. Improvement in either

last, a lad aged about fifteen years, named
John Wampole, while driving a number of
mules attached to some ore cars on the lat

to directions. The most important ingredi
ent of this medicine is Calisaya or Peruvi
an Bark, which is known to be the finest
and purest tonic in the vegetable kingdom.
The extract of this Bark is the active prin
ciple of all the good Fever and Aguo Medi
cines prescribed by intelligent doetors..—
Calisaya Bark is used extensively in the
manufacture of I . 'lantation Bitters, as well
as quinine, and we durq say they owe their
popularity mostly to that fact. We can
recommend them.
