HAPPY OCCASION AT GIRAILD.—The Dem
ocrats of Girard and vicinity held a meeting
on Saturday that is acknowledged by the
Spectator, which does not claim to be an or
gan of either party, to have been "very largely
au nded." Many pers'ons were present from
the surroundjng townships, including u dele
gation from Fairview, with flags and em
blems, and headed by the brass band of the
latter place. A hickory pole was raised in
the public square, which is one of the hand
„ntest ever secured in this section. It is
pet reedy straight, and a hundred and two
feet high. At its topis a mammoth hickory
broom, which will serve to keep the despon
dent Radicals iu mind of the big sweep the
Democracy intend making in November.
Mrs. David Olin, on behalf of the Democratic
ladies of Girard, in an admirably conceived
pceeb presented to' the club a large and
splendid Ametieina flag, which was received
on their part by Mr. G. W. Arbuckle, in that
felicitous vein in which he has few rivals.
The flag mas then hoisted to the top of the
pole, and soil spread its !bids to the breeze
a tremendous cheer burst forth involuntarily
from the audience, while the band played the
"Star-Spangied Banner” in so excellent a
style that all present were loud in their
praise. C01..1. Ross Thompson delivered the
main speech of the day, which is highly spo
ken of. 11e devoted it mostly to financial
issues; and left an impression that cannot
halo but tell for the good of the cause.. Mr.
Savage followed in u logical and convinc,
hag speech about half an hour long. The
meeting adjourned with three cheers each for
the Dentocratic ladies, the speakers, and the
ticket, all present being delighted with the
events id the day.

and a ruined business,"
,Letter from Iqor,th East. _
NORTH EAST, PL., Mtg. 18, 18p8
Editor fibrerrcr:—Your correspondent's
letter-front this pla-e, ittlast week's Observer,
ha e l eand quite a • littler in the Radical
camp kW, and Ihe political cauldron begins
to boil and bubble. "Have you read the last
°ken er ?" may Ire heard here and there in
this larrutrzh from Radical lips,atut grelt
anxiety i, manife.sted among' them to LEWIN
u ho the "Copperhead" is that has been u
hag such truths in reference to the lack of
enthusiasm among the fffilowers of the Man
"without a policy." I dare say your paper
had more Radical readers in this vicinity . the
last few days than it ever had beffire, largv as
is your list at this office. "The day break
eth I" Light is what these Radicals most
need, and if they can be induced to read . a
sound Democratic journal like the Observer,
great good may result therefrom.
The Democracy of North Eist, though few
in number, arc alive to the great interests at
stake in the ensuing State and Presidential
eleCtions. They are working "with a will,"
and. all feel confident of ultimate success at
the l ballot-box ,this fall. We have two or
three accessions from the Republican ranks
since the campaign opened, and there are
others "on the fence," almost ready to step
into the Democratic fold.
.At our primary meeting, last Saturday, fur
the selection of delegates to the County Con
vention, a Committee was app6inted to pro
cure the tallest hickory pole that could
be found in this section. • This duty Was
nobly performed by said Committee on Mon
day last, August 17th. The pole will be
raised next Satunlay afternoon,22d inst., and
in the evening a meeting is to - be held in one
of the public halls to organize a Democratic
Club for the township and borough of North
East, at which meeting a day will be named
for a monster gathering of the Democracy in
this place. Speakers from abroad ,will
address the meeting, due notice of which
will be given.
.. Aside from political matters, peace and
quiet reigns in our midst. Our business
men complain of a scarcity of mon:,
ey,: and the unwillingness of creditors to
pay up. We have experienced a long "dry
spell," add table vegetables that have hereto
fore been abundant at this season of the year,
are very backward. A good, drenching rain
would be cheering to the farmers generally.
A sad and fatal accident occurred in this
place last Friday morning about 9 o'clock.
A young lad, about l years' o age, named
William Barbour, was left in charge of two
skittish horses attached to a wagon belonging
to J. R. Harrington, at the Railroad depot.
The horses becoming frightened at the noise
made by sopte workmen engaged in tearing
away a portion of the Depot building, start
ed at a furious 'rate up Robinson street, and
turning into an opening from the road, the
wagon came in contact with some obstacle,
throwing young Barbour several feet intothe
air. In his descent be struck his bead against
a rail, which crushed in his skull and hroke
one of his anus. Re lingered inin uncon
scious state until ri o'clock p. in. of the same
day, when he expired„ The limn:mg:dile
and vicious nature of these horses may be
seen from the Chet that a few weeks ago one
of them got lock in the stable and kicked ano
ther horse with such violence as to drive one
of his hind feet elear through the poor ani
mal's ribs into lds bowels. Of course the in
jured hOrse had to be killed,as he was worth
less after receiving such a terrible wound.
Another•pidnful, though not serious, acci
dent occurred a day or two ago at the paper
mill of Mr. Jas. S. Johnson, about one mile
north-west of this borough. A young man
named Irish, employed in the mill, acci•
dentally cell'into a tub of hot water, and was
severely, though not dangerously scalded
from his hips down. Yours, &-e.,
\ The County Convention.
We will not be accused of an excess of en
thusiasm when we say that the Convention
on Monday was one of the finest, if not the
very best, ever held in the county. Nearly
every district was represented, and the ma
terial of which the Convention was composed
has never been surpassed by any similar
gathering in this city. The proceedings
were marked by a degree .or courtesy and
good feeling seldom excelled. The purpbse
which seemed to actuate, all the delegates
was one of determination to do the best that
could be done for the interests of the cause,
and to that object every one present was
willing to contribute his utmost. Conflict
ing interests were easily reconciled, compyo
mise and . conciliation were the prevailing
disposition, and a resolution actuated fill to
allow no disaueriable reflections to rest on
the feelings of any member. We have never
seen a Convention which parted in hetter
humor, or with apparently pleasanter imprea;
sions on the minds of titose who participa
ted. The delegates believed that they had
done a good day's work, and . we arc much;
mistaken if the friendships created and the
encouragement received by an interchange
of observation and opinion, will not tell with
beneficial effect during the balance of the
This was the first Convention which has
met in-the forenoon in many years, and pe
happy result of the experiment will decide
the time for convening our Conventions in
future. By meeting at an early hour, the
delegates have a better opportunity of mak
ing one another's acquaintance, and forming
a judgment upon the business which corms
We have uo opportunity to speak of the
ticket at length this Week, and will mes4y
add that from top. to bottom it Meets our
zealous endorsement. The Convention has
given us competent as well as available men
for each position, and every Democrat in:tha
county can deposit his vote with - a Tull reli=
ance that he is supporting candidates wor
thy of his strongest effort.
The campaign is now fairly open, the De
mocracy of each district are alive to their
duty; - mal everything is ready for fulfilling
the pledge of the Convention to reduce the
Radical majority in the county five hundred.
Surrostxo the entire public debt to be
about three thousand millions, which,
counting the difference between- gold, and
greenbacks, is n fair eatimate, if (Elided
among the States, Pennsylvania's share to

or five hundred millions of dollars. If again
divided among the counties, the Portion that
would fall to Erie would be $8,503,M, to
Crawford $0,980,300, to Warren $3,300,080.

'3tr. E. Camphariseir said that this was the
proper time to select a , County Committee
and Chairman; while the convention s was
full. That body was one orgreat importance,
and should be carefully chosen. Sontelifti:
eulty had occurred in c4metion with its
proceedings heretofore, audit was desirable
to obviate them in future. He moved that
the choice of the committee be Made at once.
Mr. A. Aeliesurrifayored the elmice of the
committee at the present time. He thought
thebetter plan Wonlilhe for the delegates from
each district to- selmt One member, and the
conuention at large select the ,Chairman.
Mr. Geo. A. Allen spoke in favor of electing
the Chairman, but believed. the Committee
should be left to be; appointed by him. He
thought there was but one wish in tegird to
who should be Chairman, and believed that:
the gentleman-proposed was' bettsr 'capable
of selecting an efficient committee than the
convention. ikycMl” miter gentleilea dis
cussed the question; when Mr. Whitman rose,
and, by permission:_ of the convention, said
that as his name , * been mentioned for re
election as Chairman of the Committee, he,
very much preferred the adoptioe of 36:
Acheson's pan. He had objectedlast yes.r , to,
tilkaction of the =Mallon' Piecing the re
sponsibility of selecting the Committee upon
his shoulders, and was still more strongly
opposed to a repetition of the same course.
It would be unfair to the Chairman, whoever
he might be, and was not right in principle.

plause., A lougdistaaitshm ensued, in which
it beeaine evitient,tliat Mr. Galbraith was the
first choice of nearly all the delegates, and
the conferees likely to be instructed in his
favor, when that gentleman came forward,
and asked that hisprariae be withdrawn. Re
said Warren county was entitled to the Con
gressman by right, and it ought to be conce
ded to her. Ho strongly favored the nomi
nation of Jude Brown, who is one or the
ablest, ptirest and most popular men in the
district, and would be more likely to lead
Our . hosts to victory than any other. Not
withstanding Mr. Galbraith's declension, a
number of delegates seemed determined to
'force him into the field, and the question was
finally com Promised hy perinitting the con
ferees to go uninstructed. • .
A ballot for conferees was taken with the
following result: Carver, 781 f Crosby, 47;

•Capt. Hutchinson, President of the Con

tion; or a special Convention be called for
that purpose. The precedent for the last
four years had been for the Committee to
select, but its sedan last spring was made . a
pretext for 'creating some di ffi culty that
should be avoided In , future. He hoped the
Convention would not adjourn until it had
settled ibis question so it could "neverrise to
