Hon, George Sliarswood,
The President, on Saturday, issued a proc
lamation declaring pardon to alt the citizens
of the South who were concerned in the late
rebellion with the exception of the following
First,—The chief or pretended chiefexecu
tive officers, including the President, Vice
Presidents. and all heads of , departments of
the pretended confederate or rebel govern
ment, and all who- were agents therefor in
foreign 'States and countries and all who
held Or pretended to hold in the service of
the said pretended Confederate government,
a military rank or title above the grade of
brigadier general, or naval rank or title above
that of captain, and all who were orpretend
ed to be governors of States While maintain
ing, abetting, or submitting to or aconieseing
in the rebellion.
SecOnd—All persons who in tiny way
treated otherwise than as lawful prisoners of
war, persons who in any capacity were em
ployed or engaged in the nti,litarr. or naval
service of the U. S.
Third—All persons who at the time they
may- seek to obtain the benefits of this proc
lamation are actually in civil, military, or
naval confinement or_ custody, or legally
held to hail either before or after conviction,
and all persons who were engaged directly
or indirectly In me'assussination or the late
President of the United States; or in any plot
or conspiracy in any manner therewith con
The classes excluded will number not
more than a thiaasand in all, leaving all the
rent of the people of' the South to enjoy the
,ame pOliticitl privileges as if they had not
participated in thorebellion. The proclama
tion is an Oh- written document, showing
I -
that the President is fully sustained in his
course by the resolutions of Congress at the
commencement of the war, - and - dhe acts of
the late Chief Executive, and we regret that
our crowded space compels us to omit its
publication. It has been received with
favor by Democrats everywhere, and the fact
that the Radical press make no bitter outcry
against the document, shows that even that
party has not much objection to it. The
truth ii, that a feeling is becoming current
among all classes that a Republic *cannot
safely exist with a large portion of- its al-
I : ens excluded front the right
_of participa
ting in the control of the government. Even
the New- York Tribune says :
"We were in favor of a sweeping - Amnesty.
when - Mr. Johnson was raving and roaring
thrice a day that 'treason was a crime, and
traitors must be punished.' We arc-in favor
of it 'now, and would gladly have every
peaceable, well-disposed man of the South
assured that no harm will befall him because
of his share to the Alebativie, so long as he
deports himself as a good citizen should.
Let those who were rebels feel and know
that they may plant and till, build and trade,
buy hut& and sell them, without fear of con
tiseation or molestation. So far us President
Johnson's new proclamation tends to secure
thl; end,- it has our hearty.approvaL"
Wit hope the Pemoerats and all Conser
vative men will not overlook the importance
of the contest in this State this fall. While
we have only a Supreme Judge to elect, the
election itself-is its important us though me
had ir full ticket. The same issues lire really
before the people as will conic up in the
Presidential contest itlyS6S. Judge Wil
liams, the Radical candidate for the Supreme
-bench, is in favor of all! the most' extreme
measures of his party, and his election will
be claimed by the oppositiop as an endorse
-xi:tent of his mid their ViCiVS. He is in favor
of negro suffrage in this State, and negro
supremacy . in the South, and approves alt
the measures of his pp rty that overrik %VA ,
stitutionul government bY `l,:ayonet.
Judge Williams is a dangerous, paito for the
Stipreme bench. He is pitetttsl, in advance,
to construe the law to meet the views of the
party tluk cleLt Ititn. Ought such a man tube

. people should understand
plainly that, the Radicals intend 'to cheat
them this fall if they tarry the State. While
they did not dare to put the negro suffrage
plank in their platform, because they are
afraid to "face the music," if they "are suc

odious doctrine. To be forewarned is to be
TILE New York Times says that Haight,
the Democratic Governor of California, bore
a well known loyal record as a Unionist. He
enjoys public confidence as an able and horn

anecs, will not surrender luthlic interests to
the lok,iNv•ur. to. le.agsted cstrruptionlsts in the

that the Gerternor elect is "a gentleman of the
highest personal chaMcter." and, comparing
his record with the doubtful one of the lead
ing Ridical candidate, and the " . 110 record
at all" of the other, exclaims " no wonder we
were beaten." All this is ,very pretty nem,
and no less pretty than true, but we should
like to know how it Compares with the tone
of the California Radicals previous to the
election ? We will venture to bet that evert,'

it delights Radicals so much to apply to Dem

THE National Intelligencer remarks that
the most significant intimation of the dire
distress of the Radical fiction is the sudden
and unexpected return from Europe to this
country of John W. Forney, the great mana

The Days of Radical Misrule Numbered.
When the Democracy of Connecticut won
their glorious victory last spring, we made
the confident assertion that it was the begin
ning of the great reaction in political senti
ment which is destined, sooner or later, to
sweep over the entire country. We have not
had long to wait for a confirmation pi our
prediction. The election returns of the past
week have been universally favomble,and will
eneourage the heart of every patriot. Cali
fornia has elected the entire Democratic State
ticket by in:unease and unexpected majorities,
And her young sister _Montana .has followed
with an oyerwhehning_Denocratie_triumpli.
In Maine, for some years past the very hot
bed of New England fanaticism, the Radical
majority has been' reshwe4l 14,000 in :I:single
year, d the close of a campaign of unprece
dented bitterns, which brought out the full
vote of the §tate. These gratifying results,
coming as they do juM at the right period,
cannot fail to have an important effect upon
the other States holding elections this fall.
They are indicative of the wonderful change
going on in public feeling, and verify the be
lief that before many fears the career of ma
lignant, fanatical and proscriptive Radicalism
will be ended. A change like that in Cali
fornia and Maine will give us nearly all the
large Middle and Western States by enor
mous majorities. The same influences which
have produced these results in the two ex
treacly located States of the Union arent work
in every other Northern State_ Let the De
mocracy of Pennsylvania take courage, and
go to work with trwill,petheting their organ
ization, distributing argumelds, and prepar
ing for a.contest worthy of their party and
their cause. - Victor); is within, our grasp, if,
we only will it, and if we are true to our
selves, true to our principles, and ready to
perform our whole duty, there will be no
doubt of our attaining it. Below we give
fuller particulars of the cheering tidings :
Partial returns from 39 counties give Haight,
Democrat, for Governor, over 9,000 major
ity. It is thought the majority. for the gener
al Democratic ticket will be about 2,000 less
than this. Nevada county, one of the strong
est Republican districts, gave Haight seventy
live majority. This is a representative in
stance. The Democrats elect two Congress
men nt least, and probably the whole dele
gation, a majority of the Legislature, and se
cure the next U. S. Senator. In San Francis
co county ILliglirs•majority is 3,845. In. 1865,
the time of the last general election, the
Radical candidate for Justice of the Supremo
Court had a majority in the same locality of
365. In 1865 the Democrats had majorities
in only fourteen counties, and their total lead
in these was but 1,520 votes. There can be
no doubt that the gain of the Democracy in
the State will be fully 10,000 votes. In the
election for Governor in 1863, is a total vote
of 109,162 ' the Radical candidate gained a
Un9ority of 20,733; in the Presidential coin
aign of 1864, Lincoln received 69,134 votes
against 43,841 for McClellan. a Radical ma
jority of 19,293; in the election for -one Jus
tice of the.Supreute Court, in a total of 50,460
votes. the RadicaLicsoylidate had a majority
of 6,976. No ,, ctieral Iretinn n Leta

Jatnes•M. Cavanagh, the, Democratic can
didate is elected by an overwhelming major
ity. Montana has always been Democratic,
the Leg;slature elected last year being com
posed of 2 Republicans and 11 Democrats in
the Council, and 4 Republicans and 22 Dem
ocrats in the Rouse, giving a Democratic ma
joriti- of
. 27 on a Joint ballot. This year,
however, an extraordinary effort was made
to turn the balance, and the Radicals had
high hopes of success. The verdict is mere
ly the prelude to Democratic victories in all
the Territories.
Advices from different , parts of the State
indicate large Democratic gains. • The Radi
cals are astounded at the independent moving
of the .masses, which seems to be beyond
control. Democratic gains are reported in
Portland, Bangor, Oardioer,Pittston,Augus
ta, as well as in other leading cities. Should
the returns which are vet to come in show
such heavy losses, the * Radical majority for
Governor will not be over 5,000 votes. In
every pktee of importance, from Kittery to
Passa - inatmoddy, the Radicals have met with
lautneuse losses. York, Lincoln, Knox and
Aroostook counties have been wrenched front
the clutch of fanaticism, and will give us a
representation. of seven in the Senate, (all
complete gains), to twenty-four Radicals. In
the Rouse, which is composed of one hund
red and lifly-one members, we count nn hav
ing a majority, where we had only thirteen
votes in all,last year. The Radicals are com
pletely astounded at the result. It cathe as
unexpectedly as a thunderbolt from a cloud
less sky. The Democracy are in a great state
of rejoicing as well .they may be. The re- 1
demption of Maine is close at hand. List
year the Radical elected their Governor by
27.000 majority; their Congressmen by an
aggregate of about the same; the entire
State Set At es and all the Representatives but
thirteen, .

NoNE."—A famous sentiment Tittervil by.
President Lincoln, which the members of
the party he left behind, utterly
and fail to practice. It is peculiarly perti
nent in view of the howls over President
Johnson's Arazuzly Proclannition.
IT is altogether likely that the Dispatch
and Gazette feel a littlesilly over some fea
tures of their tactics during the late exciting
contest in their party ranks. Both of them
sought industibmsly to make capital against
Lowry out of the fact that be had got some
printing done at this establishment—a course
that any candidate pos.----,sing a germ of self
respect would have pursued tmdm the satire
circumstances. Because we had done Ulla
work, in thelcgitimate line ofour business,and
given a 6ir statement of the situation of the
canvass, our cotemporarics sought hard to
convince the public that there was some in
comprehensible sort of a sympathy existing
between him and our office. The Gazette
in particular, thought it saw a_splendid op-
Portenity. to make a "ten strike,' and for
two weeks its columns were crammed with
allusions identifying the Observer with Low
,ry's interests. We confess to 'having felt
softie anneyancc at the time, but the- tables
are completely turned Row. The result
shows that the prejudice which prevailed so
extensively against Democrats, during the
war, is rapidly passing away, and that the
fact'of a Republican's patronizing a Demo
cratic office no longer affects his party stand
Mg. It shows fuither that the outcry which
our cotempomries are in the habit of raising
against the Observer about election time has
a very trilling effect even among the most
zealous Iladicals.' We have a• curiosity to
know if the Dispatch and Gazette still think
the Observer was a supporter of Lowry's.
Are they Willing to acknowledge' that it has
more influence in the ranks of their own
party than both of them combined I' ,

Democratic Convention of Crawford county:

" Ile is no stranger to the people of the

seem to be so well adapted 'to the require

is now pretty well understood by the party

to'seleet some active man, residing in the

silly enough to select a man residing twenty
Miles from the Court Muse. We should be
shrewd enough not to commit that blunder.
Mr. GRIFFITH seems to be exactly
‘ the right

very shadow of the Court House, and pos

ofmaking a valuable and efficient officer. S.

your editorials urging the selection of the
strongest ticket we can possibly get. I also
believe that no good Democrat will refuse to

the party that he should become their stand
ard bearer. A good ticket this fall will ma
terially aid our local interests, and. certainly
advance the interests of our State ticket.
Without a desire to disparage any One who
may lie urged for the position, let. me sug

The Radical Co. •,
Convention on Monday
brought to the city an immense crowd of
persons, including almost all the local man
agers in the county of every shade of poli
tics. The intense heat of the Senatorial con
test had created an interest in the Convention
rarely equalled in our local struggles, which
was heightened Considerably by the uncer
tainty of its action. ' On Saturday afternoon
and evening the Radical delegate elections
were held throughout the county, and in most
cases were of an exciting character. In this
city they resuitedlti a decisive victory for the
Colton men, Lowry's delegates only 'carrying
the Ist district, out of the foth voting pre
cincts. During Sunday there was a painful
anxiety to know how the county had gone.
The returns came in very slowly, but what
information did arrive looked rather favor
able to the Colton , wing. The Lowtyltes
were downcast, and their opponents corres
pondingly jubilant. On Monday morning, as
the delegates came in, affairs began to wear a
different phase. It •U'as.plain that the contest
would be close, buCthe probabilities seemed
to be in favor of Lowry. By noon, the indi
cations assumed a cast that caused the Colton
then to feel disheartened, and every person
.who is well posted in politics could easily
predict the final result. The headquarters
for the caucusing were at the street corners
in front of the ObServer building and Brown's
Hotel. During the forenoon these localities
were about equally'divided in respect to the
crowd, but after (Boner most of them Work
ed over to the healthy shadow of oar office.
At these corners the scenes were lively and
ititeresting in the extreme. All the candidates
were hard at nark; and it, was laughable to
see the politeness displayed, and the ingeni
ous devices resortqt to. Both sides agree
that there was more bad feeling in this con
test than any which has' heretofore occurred
in the county. The Colton men were especi
ally bitter, and seethed to conduct the canvass
mainly on the ground of personal hatred.
The Lowry men confined their efferts mostly
to refuting the charges - of the opposition,
: which had gained Wide currency through the
medium of the' Dispatch and Gazette. All
the, minor c: ndidntes became - embroiled in
one way or another in the Senatorial issue,
and the successful: men, witltout exception,_
owe their nominations to the combinations
formed in this connection.
Al a few minutes before 2 o'clock the door
to the audience room of the Court House was
opened, add the crowd began pouring in by
the score. At 2 o'clock the bell was rung,
and only a• few minutes elapsed before the
large hall was filled to its utmost capacity.
The different candidates were among the first
to enter, and moved hither and thither
through the audience in every direction.
Among the attendants, we noticed every Raul
cal politician; whether of big or little repute,
in the county. A few minutes after two, I.
B. Gars, Esq., Chairman of the County Com
mittee, mounted the Judge's -platform, and
giving a few well directed raps on the top of
the stand, asked the Convention to come to
order. lie said iCwas unnecessary to state
the object of the COnvention, and announced
himself ready - to hear any motions that might
be made. L. W. Olds, of Erie, the Cohen
champion, nominated P. D. Bryant, of liar
her Creek, as permanent President of the
Convention. Henry Butterfield, of Erie, the
Lowry lender,: mored to amend by substitut
ing the name of Chas, Burnham, of Edinbo
ro: Mr. Olds ut once called excitedly for the
original question, and proposed h division of
the laidy on the subject. Mr. Pain, of Corry,
editor of-the Telemodi
the delegates did Tint intend to be brow-beat
en, that all he or his friends wanted was
fairness, and they were determined to have it.
The Charrman remarked that he was seeking
the same object, and would only pursue such
a Course as was satisfactory to the Conven
tion. Mr.
,Butterfield called for the vote on ,
the amendment, claiming it to be the first
thing in order. The Chairman thought so
also.: and asked wliether the Convention de
sired to vote by' ballot or rim rive. Sonic
one suggested bY ballot, When a rambling and
scarcely intelligible discussion ensued as to
the Course, of past 'conventions, and the best
plah to adopt, during which most of the del
egates crowded iA a compact mass around
t hespeaker's - stand, listerffng with rapt atten
tion, an over-ambitious individual now and
then putting in a suggestion, to which no at
tention was paid. Mr. Olds appeared to be
the elder man in the debate, though in the
confusion it NVZIS hard to tell who was speak
ing or what any ode said. It was hinted that
a i! , eretary might to.lie appointed, and Mr.
.T. L. LoVeridge, of Girard, was choSen. Mr.
Paiti said there Were soAte contested seats,
which should be settled &fore a vote was
taken. He made a motion, which was not
acted unim, to appoint a Committee on Cre
dentials. One `Secretary was not thought
sufficient, and Mr. Pelton, of Erie; was
selected as an additional one. The Secreta
ries commenced culling the lists of delegates,
when Mr. Butterfield objected, as a number
of seats were contested. Mr. Olds said
-knew of no one Whose seat Was more likely
to lie contested than the gentleman's who
had last spoken. ; The Chairman rebuked
him; pleading that all should labor for har
mony. Mr. Butterfield said he did not mean
to reply . to Olds; as he did not think him
worth replying to. The Secretaries com
menced calling the distripts, and as each one
was named the credentials were handed, in;
amid much disorder. Many were so badly
written the Secretaries could with difficulty
read them, and itwas-hard work to secure a
full list of the names. When Greenfield was
called, the aunontieement was made that there
were two sets ofidelegates, which Was com
promised by taking both down, and the fist
was soon after completed. The Chairman
here requested better order in the Convention,
Mr. omAmoved that all persons not delegates
be made to take places outside of the har.
Mr.. Butterfield called attention to the tact
that there were contesting delegations from
Amity, - 41 fussy delegate Made of several
efforts to be heard, without much success
in rendering hiuiself intelligible. The mo
thin to vote by ballot was agreed to, and it
was decided that none - but those who had
undisputed credentials should have aright
to participate. Mr. Butterfield referred to the
necessity of having a Committee on Creden
tials. The Chairman said none should vote
who had not the :proper papers, and was fol
lowed by Mr. Olds with a remark we could
not hear. Mr. Butterfield said -each set from
Amity hail papers. How could it be decided
which'was the prop:r delegation to receive
until they were examined?' He moved that
both sets be alloWed to vote until the matter
had been decided; Xr. Oldie moved An amend
ment, to which no attention was paid. A'
call was made .for a vote to be taken. Mr.
Olds declared that he made no factious op
position -; all he wanted was a fair verdict
The Chairman remarked thatit was usual in
State Conventioes,in cases of contested seats,
for neither set- t 1 vote at the organization.
Mr. Olds bad something to say upon that.
Mr. Butterfield•. asked that the Jelegatee
whose seats were contested be excused from
voting. A nervous delegate rushed forward,
with his arm extended, exclaiming in-a voice
of imploration, .‘l2l,roir, Mr. President," and
Amide* baited.' The vote was taken wheth
erths Cooventide should proceed - to ballot,
width. resulted is equally loud cries of yes
and xto,lind the inability of the Chairman to
iteride width aide lad carried. At this point
the liapers from Getlenfield were handed up
to be read, consisting of ono set of creden
tials and a protest against the reception'of
the delegates. Mr. Olds asked if the pro
testants Were not Democrats.-- A deregatere
plied, "No, not one." The Secretary at
tempted to read the protest and gave it up in
despair, when the Chairman tried, With an
equally itiseouraging reedit. ' - . He finally con
tented himself withertating its purport, and
added thtitit was signed by some-26 citizens.
Mr. Olds' voice was again heard. Mr. Pain
moved that a Committee of-three be selected
to decide - Ute contested seat question, which
was carried., A delegate suggested the
Chairman as one of the Committee, which
honor the latter declined, and Messrs. Pain,
(Lowry), Olds, (Colton), and Thias. Dunn, of
McKean, (Lowry), were selected, Mr. Olds
inqUirel what firodas opciandi they should
- follow - , anti -was told that -the Conuhittee
could decide that for Mr. But
terfield asked that the lookers-on • who
had -gathered, on the Judges' stand be
obliged to leave. • Atter ~,considerable
delay, and '•
dispute, the Convention
got yeady (llir a vote. As each dele:mte's
name was called, lie stepped up-to the Secre-,
tary's desk, and ens) Ids ballot in a stove
pipe, hat seated there, the Chairmad explain
ing beforehand that they were to, vote for
Bryantor Burnham When the list hail been
gone through with, a recess of several min
utes was taken to enable the Committee -to
report and vote. Mr. Olds dimmed and
stated that tire' contestants from Amity had
withdrawn. A delegate asked what 'had
been done with the 'Greenfield matter. Mr.
Butterfield wanted to know why the proper
person, the Chairman of the Committee, had
not reported ? Mr; Olds responded that the
Chairman Was disposing of the Greenfield
case, and hyl deputed him to report, adding
"is that satisfactory, Mr. 13. ? if not, we will
send out and get more testinionv," which
was - followed by a hearty laugh. The Chair
man then mid the votes for President, and
as lte did )43 the utmost interest was displayed
by all presentmearly every other man keep
ing tally: . When lie had got through, he
stated that lie had found two tickets for Mr.
Bryant wrapped together, but presumed
was'not done intentioitally, as die Conven
tion was composed of honest men, or the
faces of the delegates were deceptive.' The
allusion to their integrity caused a sinister
smile to pass around the whole Convention.
The vote . was stated to be 53 for Burnham to.
38 for Bryant, showing that the Lowry-men
had a clear majority ifi the Convention. As
Mr. Burnham stepped up to the President's
chair, he was greeted with some iipplause.
He made a neat and modest speech, and im
pressed the audience favorably from the
start. -Thomas Dunn, of McKean, and .T. M.
Bryant, of Erie, were chosen Vice Presidents,
and E. K. Nason, of North East, and John
Hay, Jr., of Girard, Secretaries.
Mr. Butterfield moved that a- Committee
of three "on resolutions be appointed, and
without putting the _question to a vote,
Messrs. H. Butterfield, S. E. Kincaid and D.
C. Stafford . were named. The President
asked if some one had a copy of the call for
the Convention, but nobody 'having thought
it worth while to bring one along, remarked
that he supposed the first business would be
the nomination of a candidate for State Sen
ate. A delegate remarked that the Commit
tee on contested seats Was still Ottt, to which
„the President responded, "verY, well." The
suggestion was made that it would facilitate
business, while awaiting the return of the
Committee, to place 'candidates in nomina
tion. The idea was eagerly accepted, and
the persons named :
Senate—Morrow 13. Lowry, Geo. W. Col
ton; City. -
A.semblv—Geo. P. Rea, Girard; Samuel
Reeder, Edinboro; Geo. W. DeCamp, 0. W.
Starr, A. rt. Kellogg, City; J. D. Stranahan;
Le Ileouf; C. 0. Bowman, Corry C. C.
Boyd, Waterford.
- Sheriff—J. W. Swaney, City; Col. Swan;
Pairyiew• ; Col. Campbell, Waterford.
Mr. Butterfield said he w— 1— a
„ imuniw um. Campbell's name, and moved
that no further nominations be made for the
present, which was carried unanimously.
The Convention now waited ten orfifteen
minutes for the report of the Committee on
the Greenfield case,.over which it was under
stood they were having a stormy time. The
interval was made good use of by the candi
dates. At last the Committee appeared, and
it was foetid that after all the delay and dis
cussion the subject was in no better shape
than when it left the Convention-7two
reports being presented—the one signed by
Pain and - Dunn recomMending that neither
delegation should be admitted,and that of Olds
favoring the admission of the Colton dele
gates. Olds asked permission to explain- 7
he said the voting in Greenfield had been
done'on a blackboaril, - that it was the it- , ual
planin the township, and as correct as the
Bible. Mr. Pain denied that blackboard
voting was the true plan, and alleged that
Democrats had participated in the caucus.'
Some one retorted that the man who had
voted and is said to be a Democrat supported
Lincoln. Mr. Bryant, of Harbor Creek, in a
nervous speech, claimed, that blackboard
voting was legal, that each township had the
right to fix its own' mode, and that it was
the custom in hia locality to vote in that way.
Butterfield called for the 'question—Bryant
in an excited manner demanded to be heard
—Pain and Olds essayed to speak, amid cries
of "iinition,"—the President commenced
preparing to take the vote—the minority ex
presses' dissatisfaction—and cries of "ques
tion" were heard on all sides. Mr. Butter
field again called attention to the unauthor
ized - crowd 'around the President's chair,
insisting that they- should come 'down.—
Olds vociferously demanded the I's and no's.
A vote was taken, and the President stated
that it had gone in' favor of sustaining the
report, which was followed by , tumultons
'shoats for the I's and -No's. Mr. Olds said
if Greenfield was not *competent to choose
her own delegates, it was time the county
knew it. Mr. Butterfield made a few re
marks;casually saying he had perhaps been
mistaken in his understanding of a point, to
which Olds replied that he was usually
-wrong.'' More calls were made for the Ps
and No's, and suggestions .without number
were heard on all sides. 'Olds wanted a
decisive vote. To bring the subject in a
philn manner before the Convention, Mr.
Pain moved that the President's decision be
sustained. A vote was taken on this point,
' and the No's were as strong on one side as
on the other ; when a regular vote was taken
by districts. Some of' the responses were
quite low, and could not be distinguished by
the Secretaries. A delegate near the desk
conveyed the answers. to them in several
instance's, which was objected to by one ,of
the Vice Presidents, who said he wanted no
"sheenegan.". The vote was announced to be
for the report to 40 against it, so both the
Greenfield delegations were excluded.
The President here ordered that all per
sons who were not delegates 'or candidates
must leave the bar, which request was only
complied with in a few instances. On Mr.
Butterfield', motion,the (knivention proceed
ed to' vote for Senatoromd as the votes were
being taken the utmost interest was displayed
on every side. • ThC ballot-box stood on the
President'S stand, and as each man's name
was r ealled - he walked up on the right, de
posited his
,vote, and returned by tliE left
steps. The result of the ,balloting was de.
dared to be 51 for Latiry, and 43 for COlton,
so Mr. Lulry was announced as the nomi
nee of the Convention. An outburst of
Cheering, one or two hisses and a decided
amount of turmoil followed.. The President
asked that no demonstration of respect or
disrespect be made in future. Mr. Butter
field moved that 31. B. Lolry be declared
the unanimous nominee of -file Convention,
and that the choice of Crawford county be
concurred in without appointing conferees.
Mr. Olds objected,
,but - the motion was
agreed to, 01(1.5 only voting against It. -"An
intertnission Of some minutes occurred:to
prepare for the Assembly vote, which 'was
improved by the Colton men in heaping
curses loud and deep upon those their-fac
tion whom they claimed to have betrayed
them. A prominent German delegate from
the 3d district vehemently announced •the
gratification it would afford him to "kick
the d—d coasts who had sold out" his can
didate, which *as as heartily agreed to by
the person addressed. The leading Colton
men looked entre(' and humiliated ; the
Lowry men, withciut any' special demon
strations of delight, were evidently in tine
spirits. .
The next business was the selection of
candidates for Assembly: Five ballots were
taken, with the following result :
1.1 2tl :W 41/i

- Mr. Rea received a neijority on the first
ballot, and was declared the nominee. The
names of Mestirs. Reeder, Kellogg and Bow
man were withdrawn after the second ballot
and that of Mr. DeCamp after the third. It
will be noticed that on the ti fth ballot the
votes for Shanahan and Starr stood precisely
the same as that for Senator. During the
balloting the •tiky became obscured With
clouds, as if hi mourning over the proceed
ings, and in response to the demand for light
several tallow dips were procured, by the
aid of which the Convention finished
its• -dark and direful deliberations.—
* At the close of the 4th ballot the Pres
ident requested all the delegates and-their
friends to participate in a supper at the Reed
House, at the expense of the successful Can
didates. The same invitation was repeated.
by A. McD. Lion, Esq., at the termination of
the balloting for Assembly.
COl. Campbell's name having been with
drawn, the contest for Sheriff was narrowed
down to Messrs. Swaney and Swan, the lat
ter receiving 02 votes to 32 for the former;•
and securing the nominalhib on the first bal
lot. For Clerk of the Courts Jas.
ford, of North East, obtained '25 votes; A. M.
Judson, of Waterford,-18; and, Charles L.
Pierce, of Venungo, 49—the latter !having
a majority of all the votes was pronounced
the nominee. On the Couhty Wllmission
erAhip there was u desperate struggle. The
candidates were Jas. Chambers,. of Harbor
Creep; W. B. Weed, of Greene ;
,anit Wtn.
P. Biggers,- of Edinboro. The Lowry men
were exceedingly bitter on Chambers, for
having, as they alleged, promised to support
"him at the :caucus elections, and then .clan
destinely worked against him. Their oppo
sition of conrso concentrated the Colton men
in his favor. The friends of Lowry united
on Wm. B. Weed, Wild was nominated.on
the third ballot itVil votes to 40 fin• Cham
bers—a result. which called forth froth the
• majority the most enthusiastic cheers. Da
vid Pattersrin,,of Wattsburg, was nominated
for Jury .Commlisioner ;- Jacob Hanson, of
this city, for Director of the Poor; and F. F.
Stowe, of Amity, for Auditor. A motion was
carried that the members pledge themselves
to stand by the nominees . "first, last, and all
the time." An assessment of'sl upon each
of the nominees wits made to pity the janitor
for cleaning out the room, a very necessary
proceeding undoubtedly. „

object-sought, viz : a free and honff ,

ReAulvd, That Delegate Convenflons for
the nomination of county officers be abolished,
and that the next county Committee be in

tem," fora lw nomination of candidates, and
the-said"Volnmittee is hereby directed to issue
their call in 1818 in accordance with the spirit
of this resolution.
Beeolred, That the Setudor • and Represen l

quested to use their heat efforts to establish a
true - Republican paper itfthis county.
At about nine o'clock, tlic,,Convention ad
journed, most of the members availing them
selveg of the invitation to take a free meal at
the Reed House, with the exception of softie
of the strongest Colton men, who declared
that they didn't "want to eat any of Lowry's
cgld victuals." Its proceedings have had the
effect of still more increasing the dissatisfied
elements of the party, and many of the
friends of the defeated candidates openly ex
press• their determination to vote for the
Democratic nominees or not at all. Every
one of the candidates nominated is under
stood to be identified with the Lowry wing.
The latter had everything their - own Way,
which is largely due to their early prestige
in securing the President, and still more to
the skill of Mr. Butterfield, their lender, who
proved himself a comple tactician. . The Cot
ton men were less fortunate in theirmanager,
and a considerable share of their -ill fortune
may be attributed to that,fitet The result of
the Proceedings will have no good' effect on
the general interests of the party in the coun
ty; and if our Convention on Monday pre
sents a ticket Of first-class men," is judicious
in its deliberations, and pursues a shrewd
policy, we feel sure of a largely increased
