Democratic Meeting at Nicholson.
A large, respectable and enthusiastic
meeting of Democratic Ladies and Gentle
men assembled in the grove near the old
Bacon stand in N;ch< ison, on Saturday, July
18th 18C3. The meeting was called to order
by P. B- Baldwin E q , who nominated Eli
N. Bacon E-q. as President, who was unani
mously elected. The following named per
sons were then chosen as Vice Presidents.—
A. Gordineer and E. Ball, Nicholon, D
Bidlenian, Clinton, Z. Biilnigs, Monroe, F.
V. Siekler, Falls, Theron Finn, Benton, S.
Carpenter, Lenox, J. S. Scott, Lathrop, \\ in.
F. Terry, Tunkhannock, E. S. Finn, Green
field, A. U. Grit man, Scott.
Edwin Stephens, N. P. Wilcox, Ilnllowny
Stephen', and Dr. H. N.Kelly, were chosen
Jacob DeWitt was then introduced, who
briefly and ably discussed the issues now
befoie the people. He was followed by Dr.
S. M. Wheeler, Silkmnn and Judge Me ri
f.eld of Luz. Co., and 11. 11. Little and Vv'ni.
M. Piatt of Wyoming, whose remarks were
listened to with the greatest attention, and
elicited frequent ronnas m nppime-v.
Signed by the Officers.
A Word to our Subscribers.
With one or two numbers more we shall
enter upon the 3rd volume and year of the
Democrat. A la'-ge number of our subscri
bers have taken our paper from the begin
ning, without paving for it. A still larger
number have failed to pay us for the present
year. Perliap3 every delinquent deems him
self the only <>ne <>n our hst ; and I.ioks his
single 51.50 or §3.00 can nuke no very
great difference in our business. If it were
true that we ha 1 but one delinquent sub
scriber, even at cv ry post office in the couu
ty, it might nt s. rion-ly interefere with our
bus'ne-s; but w n they exist in scores at
si g ? e offic iin the rggregate by hun
dreds it be unes to us, a matter of very
greit, ir *• • ncj that each mm pay in his
•übscr :> i.
Unpleasant as it may and would be to us,
we sh&il be obliged to ptrt cvarany with
our delinquents of long standing, after due
notice— by striking their names from our
books, as dead heals. T.'iis notice cannot
long be witheld. " Self preservation," and
no want of kind feelings or generosity, forces
us to thus plainly address our subscribers.
Besides we have grown into tho habit of
plain speaking—a habit in wtiich we are en
couraged b}' our subscribers.
Our paper, ink, and tab .r have to be paid
for in advance, or when dine. T iera Uno
intelligent reader, man, woman or child, in
tbis county that can not take our paper and
pay for it. No one who is in fav ;r of truih,
justice liberty and democracy—the conserva
tor of these—sliou! 1 hesitate to encourage
and sustain the 1 cal press. To thar, all
look in times of trouble. It is the last senti
nel on th watch tower of liberty—the last
bulwark between the people and their des
potic rulers. t\ hen that is broken d >wii, or
sinks through neglect, there is nothing be
tween them and tyranny in its tn ist hideous
and exacting forms with it, constitutional
liberty survives or die 3. Let every man
then, who loves his country ; who loves lib
erty, such as has been given to us by the
lathers i f the revolution, and has been pre
served by their posterity until the present ;
put his shoulder to the wheel and labor for
the inculcation of the principles of Democra
cy. This is most effectually done through
the local county presses. These reach the
hearts and hearthstones of their thousands
cf readers on the hillsides and in the vallevs.
In co: elusion let us say that every reader .
of the Democrat should con*ti>ute and ap
point himself a c< niai'ltee of one, to procure j
and send us any number of responsible prompt '
paying subscribers. Not neglecting them- '
selves, to set the example.
Speech of Hon. L. XV Vorhccg.
The speech of II<n. D. W. Vorhees of
Indiana a part of which will he found oh our '
first page will be concluded in our next.—
iu; ien th necessarily excludes many articles
that nrght fe of interest to our readers ; but
we feel satisfied that every careful reader of
it, will agree with us, that it is not too long. I
Kvery man, woman and child in tho land
should read it.

The Draft is the must exciting anrl !
all absorbing topic of, conversation through
out the c uintry. We have had various ru
mors in relation to it, so far as this district
is concerned. Some say that it has already
taken place. This is not probably true ; but
fioin present indications it is now certain
that it will be made, by the officers having
the matter in charge, in their own time,
place and ipanner, and without any pains, on
their part, to assure the people that it i#
done fairly and impartially. A'l those lia
ble to the llrst call should prepare for the
event, a l -, in all probability, but few of that J
class will < scape. The law is relentles 7 , and
those who execute it are eq Lilly *, at least
so far as p diticaljopp merits are c mcerm-d.

The capture of Port Hudson with 7000
prisoners is fully confirms I. Margin's rait

The following resolutions were passed at a ■
great Democratic meeting, hell at Benton,
July 4th, 18G3.
\] liereas, It hath pleased God to permit
us to meet once more under th • fol !a of our ;
national flag—that flag rendered sacred to j
pvry American heart by the gloriou sachieve- .
inents of our patri tic fathers, whoso hallow
ed dust is now sleeping in honored graves,
and whose memories every true American
and patriot must ever revere ; we, the citi
zens of the counties of Luzerne, Snsqne'-an- ,
na and Wyoming, now assembled (and for
the last time it may he) to celebrate the An- ;
niver.-ary of American Independence, in this
Union of ?t ites unbroken, many of which are
now being desecrated by an unholy war,
and drenched in fraternal blood, ami Where
a,- We still love onr country and Union and
the C institution framed by our father-, do
now, in the name of reason, humani'y and
the obligations we owe to c>viltZktio 1, t • our
common country, and to our G >■!, u Ist sol
emnly protest again*. the furilier pfosecu
tion of this war against S -uthern States, or
any state, for the emancipation of negr > ela
-1 very, for the subjugation of States, or for
any other purpose than the settletnen of an
honorable peace between the North and
South ; and to this end we hold that the
bloody experience of the last two and a half
years fully dem >n*trate the imperious neces
sity 1 f calling ior a cessation of hostilities,
and an armistice between the belligerent par
ties at the-earliest posstbl t moment, as tlie
onls practicable means of restoring peace and
tranquility to 011 now distracted country,
and saving a further ( ITu-ion of bl >•>,] an )
useless waste of treasure; as war and blood
shed can never afuct a reunion with tin
S 11 h, as our ex enence. and the futile ex
I eruuents of the Lincoln Administration, fo!
ly demonstrate. The n c mds of Lincoln ng
, cresstons and the reverses of his armies 11
ready show a state an I condition in otirna
ti mal affdrs of tho mo t frightful anil appill
ing character, with not one redeeming fea
ture to test a single impw of success upon,
win ewe cling to this dissolving Union of
States, and to the glorious com*teiiatton of
stars and stripes with a pertinacious hold,
praying to " Iliut who doeth till things we'l"
tor the salvation of t>ur country ami nation.
We will unite imr suppbcat'ons with every
patriot in the land, for a speedy deltverenee
from Abraham Lincoln's bloody Abolition
rule, and the further desolation of our once
prosp- puis count rv.
Avd Whereas, This once strong and bap
pv people is now bowed down in the dust,
mourning in the agony and tears of dissohi
tion. Reason, justice, constitution and lan
no longer are regit* led by tne pavers that
he; negro fanaticism, c irrupti n. attd wick
edness are i.ovv ,1 nst p .tent in the c nmsels
of the nation at Washington. Upon every
breeze is borne tie fca 1 lamentations end
groans of national sorrow and Esecnt ivo in
farny. In the hut and hamlet whet e the
poor mm d veils, and in the mansion where
the more wealthy have their homes—in the
strce's. in our chnrohe*, in the pr.vafo social
circles of I:i "e—everywhere we turn our eves,
we liehol I sorr wing faces, and the dark an i
gloomy babdiinents of mourning. And with
all these are mingled the widow s wes and
orphan's tears. All these sad signs of uni
v t rsal human suffering we behold in portions
of nnr c njntry reinotu ft* on the battle field,
or places where toe contending armies have
gone. W hat the horrible scents of blood
and slaughter are on the p'ains of carnage
and death, only who have witnessed
them can describe. We a-k ourselves n >w,
as heretofore, tor what end is all this sactt
(ice of hutnau lift and national treasure ?
An 1 then, casting our eyes over the bio >dy
bis oty of ihts war, we fin 1 tbe only truth
ful answer that can !o made is. that Aura
| liaiii Line In, like ' Cae-ar might be great,"
; and that the " nigtrer iiuzhl be free." Li
j v eiv ol* this sad picture of our national af
; fa rs wsenne n n here to day to lej nee as in
lit gone lime we tvete wont to do oil eacii
j returning Fun t!t of July, wiien peace and
. prosperity were smiling upon our land and
Country. lu day we must bow our faces
down low in the dus*, and uiourn (>r nnr
bleedi ig country, now being .-mitten with a
j despot's hand, and mingle our tears with a
s .moving people, imploring God in ILs mer
cy to save this Union from e'er.ial dissolution
and the further curse ol tins desolating war,
8" unwisely provoked, and so wretchedly
conducted by t;us corrupt A Imiiiistraiioii.

Lincoln and his iiifuuous Cabinet in the vain

of advise!s around liitn—all seeing in sin

sake of negro emancipation? We Ry n<>.
we protest against the further prosecution of
this unconstitutional assumption ol I.xecu
