Lathe under one flag. Behold how good
and -lovely 'if thing it is for brethren to
dAvell together in unity !
'' We„ pave always refrained from any
comm'e'nts which might be regarded as
persOnal to any of the leaders of the
Diiniocraq: Theirlitiblie.acts as officers'
orpoliticians we ventilated when 'ICUS
lint we had nothing to do with
than this. Whether they
were good or bad, smart or stupid, hon
orable or scoundlielly as individuals we
didn't take the trouble to ascertain or pub
lish, nor (lid we care.
, Butwe.find in the
Vi;/iiiiker of last week so much- that
intuit be of interest to the community, as
indicating the kind of men who run the
DeMocratie mnchi.,e in thp district, tthat
we can't resist the temptation to coil aTe
frreY ftlie items. -
The Volunteer commences with the
licalt of the ticket thus :
‘• Our county had boon grossly insulte
and betrayed, and honest Democrats
were not iu a humor to endorse and ap
,l.land the man who was instrumental-in
forcing this insult upon them. Beyond
question, Mr. Haldeman is the only man
iu Cumberland who has the. face to ask
for a nomination against the solemn pro
test of the people of the county in which
lie says he resides. There is not a case
nun record, such a thing was never heard
of, as a man being nominated for Con
gress after having suffered defeat in his
county. Heretofore, here and every
where, it candidate for any district nomi
nation who failed to carry his own
0 county was no longer thought,of by ally
one —he was considered out of the 'field.'
" Both York and Perry conceded Cum
berland the candidate, and it was little
less than treason to the party not to ob
serve the principle - heretofore always
recognized, that the county entitled, to
the candidate had the positive right to
name that candidate. This principle,
we say, has always been respected, and
until now, hind any one attempted to
ignore, it, lie would have been regattled
as a disorganizer ; nay, worse than a
disorganizer—a traitor. It was not the
good of the party, nor the welfare of the
District that prompted the violators of
this principle to their' work."
'Mr. Billiton then reaches for the editor
if the Perry County :Democrat, as follows,
" Ilad they been MI Ceet , hill I, we ca n.
readily itnaginethe gigantic and donghty
li or of the DeSto , rat, clad in Lhe breast--
pia le of legislative incorruptibility, and
beat ing a trenchant WON of Harrisburg
(I he compositor will be careful not
to get it stral,) personally chastising the
Cumberland delegation and driving them
over the mountain. The viar of this
onslaught can ,only be properly appre-,
elated when it is known that any one of
the aforesaid delegation would have been
able to -pick John up and give hint a.
smacking on that spot which hits richly
deserved a good kicking times without
number. if oin: friend of the Democrat
(and we Anil always be proud to claim
him as a friend whose prothises are in
violable, and whose word is as good as
his bond ), really must chastise somebody,
to relieve his excited feelings, he could
do nothing more deserving, or which
would afford more general srttisfactipn to
-the community in which he resides, than
to give himself a thorough cow-biding.

Th 6, Shippeitsburg Bentine'l then eomps
• in fin. 'a first-class notice, With in litisi-

and runs thus
• " Since the editor of the Senthiel innntal

The Bridgeport conference that•nond
nated Mr. Maldem:yi then gets a puff,
which must be invaluable to a small
concern just beginning business :
Ah !—why were two hundred men at
Bridgeport at the meeting of the Con
ferees? What, necessity was there for
their presence ? Had we desired it We
could have had two - thousand 'Cumber
land county Democrats on the ground on
il ay,.but, we did not'want them ; wo
had no business for them. And who
were these two hundred men who were
"at Bridgeport to bully and bluster—
whore wore they from ? One-half of
them were from Dauphin, county, some
fifty of them being Harrisburg roughs.,
The others were disorganizers from this
county, who for years have bten active
-in fomenting opposition to the-will of a
majority of -the Democrats of Cumber
land. Most of them wore from Carlisle,
where the vote stood=BrattOn, 307;
Haldeman, 53. Men of influence, truly I
And these were the men wh4 were at
Bridgeport to threaten the C. erees—
Dauphin county roughs, 'and men in
Cumberland without influence as Demo-,
crats. Beauties, indeed, to • instruct
Conferees representing the 15th District
how to commit an outrage on Cumber
land county." ' '
To all*these advertisements of the,
onor, purity, and intelligence of Lho
leaders of the Democracy in the disttict,
we invite attention . No enemy of the
old party Makes these charges„ Before
we were old crimigh to read a paper Mt:
Bratton was wetting iu theinterest of the
DemocHit l ic party of this county. No
man ever yielded a more hearty, and few.
more effective service to any party than he
has done for the Democracy. And now
after havinghis merited litmors Stolen
from him, he again, to further the ends of
the party that lie has so faithfully served, .
wheels into line, and ffghts for it as vigor
ously as ()fold. Mistaken as are his poll
cal views, we cheerfully concede that ho is
fearless and holiest, and nothing ever in
duced him to fly the whole ticket at his
masthead - hi this campaign, except his
desire for -the harmony of the party.
Such men tell no bad tales about, their
associates unless itis unavoidable. These
blows are struck not in anger but in
sorrow, but -what do'they reveal? Does
any man desire to follow such leaders
who cares at all for the .welfare of his
country, or the purity of her institutions.
Let all gooitinen of the Democratic party
read carefully, these scathing deserip:
thins of the Modern leaders of their party,
by one who fully knows whereof he
speaks, and then ask themselves, how
they -Alarb—phice - themselves under the
control and direction of Snell men?
The war in Europe Continues-notwith
standing the- surrender of Napoleon and
the capture of MacMahou's army at
Sedan. The Prussians are advancing
for the purpose of besieging Paris, and
at latest affvices were within a-few miles
of that 'city. They propose to collect
400,000 armed men around.the French
Capital, which will likely be defended by
nearly as great a. force of soldiers, leaving
out of count its immense civil popula
tion. Bazaiue still holds Metz, notwith
standing the efforts of the Prussian's to
capture it, and Strasbourg and Mont
medy are 'still in the possession of the
French. There are frequent rumors of
repulses of the Prussians with bewq
losses, but these are probably Of about
the same importance to the grand result
as were the hundreds of repulses suffered
by our own troops during the late war,
to the crushing of the rebellion.
Within a few days there has been a
very marked change in the sentiments
expressed by thOf- , ,a.merican press on the,
subject of the war. Previous to the cap
ture of the Emperor the Prussian suc
emtses were hailed ,vith. enthusiasni. It
was so clearly evident that the war was
without justification on the part of Napo
leon, that anything tbathad a tendency
to secure his overthrow was received
gladly. With his Surrender, however,
the tide seenni turning. Prussia has
entirely defeated whatever schenms
,Napoleon might have entertained, and
has reduced hint from the position of a'
great ruler to that of a submissive cap
tive. With the French nation, as such,
no quarrel lies. They have the right to
their Own territory, and to the establish
ment of whatever government they may
desire. The overthrow of Napoleon will
alWays be justified ; the conquest of
France will be viewed in a different

death was entirely unexpected, even to
his family, and its announcement was
received with unfeigned sorrow by-all
who •knew him. He stood well in his
profession, and Was known throughout
the State as an able writer, an.cLa.for
cible speaker. He was quite conspicu
ous as a politician, having been for many
years' connected with the Harrisburg
Patriot, and having represented his dis

THAT'S WHERE /T IS.—The Alban'
Argus abuses the President for going to

forms it thus : _
"The Government is where the reve
nue is being more honestly collected, so
that receipts have increased $51,000,000
since President Grant's inauguration.
It is where the expenditures have been
diminished so that the estimates are de
creased $31,000,000 for the coming year:
IL is where taxes are being reduced, so
that '570,900,000 are taken from the bur
dens of the people by a single act. It is
where $158,000,000411 the aggregate are
thus saved to the people in honest col
lections, and retrenched taxes. It is
where $140,000,000 are paid on the prin
cipal of the debt within sixteen months,
so that the load of the future is made
lighter and the present weight of inter
est is diminished. The people see these
acts, gild, they recognize the Government
in them. They know it is where these
great things are being done. - They per

President Grant chooses to get out of

senso he thus displays."
Wren Wednesday, the thirty-first day
of August, closed the cotton year 1869-70 ;
and, from the best attainable information,
the crop aggregates 8,29000 hales, or
an increase over the. total receipts of the
cotter' year 1868-9 of 860;000 bales. As
one consequence of this heavy increase
in receipts, the stock now in hand in all
the - great cotton countries shows 520,000
more baleS than were on hand upon the
thirty-firstof August, 1869. The signifi
cance of these figures, which, allowing a
large margin for delayed reports, cannot
be 50 1 000 out of the way, is interesting.
As a consequence "of the preSent great
accumulation of stock, the market for
the year now begun stare with a heavy
bias toward low prices ; and if the new
crop fulfills its present prdniise;the rul
ing rates this year for the staple must be
Inuch below the general high prices of
1869-70: Any serious reductioh cannot
but have a-bad effect union the planters,
and, in anticipation of low prices doing
much damage this year, it is not putting,
too tine a-point upon it to look for a con
siderable increase in the .aniount 'of
capital which will be divested front cotton
growing to cotton manufacturing South
in 1871-2. As is well known to 1110111 - len,
there are no advantages from manufac
turing cotton at the place of its growth; -

John Williamson, esq., for many years a
Prominent member of the - Cuinberland

nephew, In West Philadelphia on Satur

of this place. Mr. W. had arrived at
the advanced age of 82 years.
MILITARY ENTLIUSIAS3L—The military
spirit of old is gradually bbing revived
in our borough: The organization of

and IV hear that the young Men of South

question of organizing a cavalry com
pany. Let the good work go on, and let
us havo the lively scenes of the good old
muster and training days once more
re-enacted within our borough, memories
of which still linger in the breasts of
our " oldest inhabitants."

not be indulged in. We know many in
dividuals that have arrived at- the ages
of maturity that would gladly abandon
this habit, but who cannot do so, having
through long -practice become the slaves,
as it were, of the noxious weed. Parents
should take this matter in hand, and
"bring up their children in the way
they should do."
. .THE CourtTy.lit.—The people of
this county should not forget the near
approach of the time for ho'-ding the an

busy at work 'perfecting the necessary

make every provision for the comfort and
convenience of exhibitors
Meanwhile, our farmers, mechanics mid
citizens generally,-'should be at Work
preparing their articles for exhibition.
StOCIE of all - kinds; machinery; products
of the farm and dairy, domestic manu
factures, fancy articles, etc., should be
got ready. There must be a division of
the labor between the officers ancr/the
people if we would 'have a fair that will
be attractive and ; remunerative, and at
the same time be an index to the growth
and prosperity of the county,
HUNAWAY.—On Thursdy last as the
tones of Robert M. Henderson, was
conveying three ladies from Mrs. Bosser
man's funeral, the horses .became fright
ened at the noon freight west, and started
off ato fearful rate of speed. The rail
road trllT)ld intersects'Hanover at
Main street, was crossed in safety, but
the train being close by excited the
animals; when one of them, by some
means or other, got across the tongue,
and they dashed clown Hanover street.
The driver deserves great credit for his
coolness of mind on this occasion. Thu
runaways were finally checked in front
of Messrs. Strohm & Sponsler's shoo
store, by Mr. C. inhoir, who ran out and
seized oue of the animals. No in-
jury was sustaincd by the occupants,
or damage done to the vehicle, and they
can congratulate themselves on their
very narrow escape.
