Ki.,We publish in another column'the
Ball fora so:called Union Convention.-
- :While haying no.. sympathy with "the
peTeraent, and being determined to op
' pose : it with all the power and influence
; we can command, we yet think it nothing
more than simple justice to giie them,
- with` all others, the use of our columns
for the publication of matter of a legal
or general character, so long as ours is
the only paper in the county..
The resolutions of the call are- some-
what .paradoxicai ; while stating that they
desire peace and harmony, they fling In
tuits into the face of men who are as good,,
as hinest, as faithful, and as free from
suspicions or disloyalty as the men Who
'drifted the "Union Resolutions" - ; saying,
,in the words of the circular, "if you de
sire you [the people] can select Men - who
will serve the people and not the philan
thropic officeholders who talk largely and
vote . away your'seeuriies," and who Fare
preparing to make. money out of your
taxes.and mine." Who are voting away
the securities of the people? Who are
making money tint of the, people's taxes ?
These are brdd assertions, but not so
broad but what (they can be reduced to
the simple propositions :s that some of our
past and present office-holders have del
frauded the people : that some have 'do.
lated their oaths and failed to protect the
'thing entrusted to them. We always ex-.
petted that there were men enough who
'ere trilling and anxious to relieve the
people of Abe burden of holding office,
but we seareel2.,' thought men would stoop
so low and so far forget honest.manhood
as to call their neighbors the hard names
used by •many citizens" in their call.
This "many citizens" sounds a little zi(ii
culous to one in theXorough the day the
call - was made out. We saw no very
"many-citizens" on - the street, nor heard
of very "many c4izens" meeting together,
we opine that werC:the whole truth de
- Rimed we would: see that the "many citi
zens" contained in the call, referred pri
manly to a few of our old-line Democratic
friends in town, who no doubt, thought
the word Union would be t a very good
hobby-horse on - which to ride some of

Neither are the resolutions such as•will
tend to harmonise the two contending
.at home. The Republicans of
Potter county deem the men placed in

the - positions for which they have been
selected, and filling them as faithfully
and honestly as any who will or oan be
selected by the pseudo-Unionists. It.is•
a strange timo for making a Union pro
position to the dominant party of Potter.
It would have'sounded much better and
little more 'honest a month since, but
that was not in the programme of the men
who have assumed the calling of a Union
Convention. They • seek, to put a' wrong.

[For•the Potter Journal:]
ED. JOURNAL : We had'a lively gath
ern% of the redoubtable. Democracy in
. our Borough, ast Saturday. Upon the
abuntenauce cif each and every one of
them was depicted burning aniety for
the salvation of our imperiled country,
or some other subject of vital importance
to the people. On inquiry we soon learn
ed, that it was only the assembling of the
Democratic County Committee, to - delib
erate upon the.subject of "whiskey", :The
cabal nietln • the Sheriff's Office, and or
osnized. On a call• of the towns,' Elijah
Johnston answered for Pike; Versel Dick
enson for G-enessee; Philander Read for,
Pleasant Valley; Niles White for• Eul- '
lie ; John R. Smith for Coudersport; and
five orsix others of less prominence in
the party were present. It is rumored
that two professed Republicans, seeming
ly were, acting with the, cabal, but they'
played-some shy, whether from a hatred
of Democracy or Whiskey is not ; fully
known; :but judging--,--fram'their antece

Whiskey and the- other the- Democracy.
After several- licaTraliberatien, the off
spring of thb -cab _was the 'notice circu
lated • thiough the county, christened
"Union Ticket." It is really gratifying,
even at this last hour,. to find that alarge
majority of those present at the said
meeting, have seen the error into which
they-had fallen, and instead of,'sympathiz

wet here last Saturday, would have-spurn

trickery is too naked and shallow . to' de,

They ]now, and- we all know, that there
can be found no *more loyal or better
Uuort men in the country, than every

Two - .l.lchel officers spying round the
camp at Elk Water this morning were
surprised by our pickets and shot. The
body-of ond was brought into camp,rand
it proved , to be that -of Col. John A.
Washington, of Mount Vernon. •
A heavy blow was yesterday dealt to
the traitors in, Maryland by the arrest of
the ten Baltiinore delegates to the Legis
lature, Mayor Brown, Ross Winans , Hen
ry 31ay,:and two editors—of The Baltc
more Exchange and The . Baltinzore
South. These arrests were ordered by
the authorities at Washington,, and were ,
quietly made, although - great i excit6ment
prevailed in the city.
We commit no impropriety in announc
g that the preparations for two import
ant,. movements against the Southern
coast are going rapidly forward, so that
the expedition will be ready to set sail
within a - very few weeks. In one of them,
the land forces will probably be under
Major-Gen. Butler, and in the other, tin
der Brigadier-. Gen. Sherman, who IS now
in command of the important camp at.
Hempstead, Long Island. We believe
that the number of troops of all arms em
ployed in the two will- be abkut 2:5,000
men, with naval forces of—prop tionate
strength. Precisely what places
be assailed - we do not know, and would
not state if we• did; but we may safely
infer from the magnitude of the prepara
tions that the objects of attielr are points
of importance, , and that the bittws to be
struck are-intended to be felt with crush
ing effect in the very centre of the rebel
lion.--•f7 y.. Triburre, Nontlay.

following resolutions were presented and
• I?cNolred, That we deprecate the late
sectional and party Convention held at
Coudersport, as evkricing a disposition,
and having a tendency tc prevent harmo
ny of opinion, action and feeling to put
down the great rebZilioa, now being wa
ged against the National Government.
I?esolvcd, That No invite all g ood
Union citizens without distinction ofpre
vions political preferences, to meet in
their respective townships on Saturday,
Sept. the 21st, 1861,. and elect two
egates to meet in a Convention to be held
in Coudersport on Wednesday, Sept, 25,
1861, at 4.o'clock ,p. m.
We are all anxious re put down Sec
tionalism and rebellion in thK great Na
tional contest. But the party leaders
here that manage your conventions and,
are preparing to make money out of your
taxes and mine, must keep up their hack-1
neyed party, organization, and the time
has arrived, and an oppottunity occurred
1107.0 not "hereafter" as the resolutions in
their late Conventions say, when, if you
desire, you can select officers who will
serve, the People and not the philanthrop
ic office holders who talk largely and vote
away your tiseurities. Let us act to cor
rect the, abuses and clean out' the un
dean. Let us have - a full Convention of
determined Union men—men . who will
act and do foi• the People.
