What Would we Do.
"We are sometimes asked what would be
the positive policy of the democratic party
if restored to power."
"First, they would restore the supremacy
of our violated Constitution and laws, and
with this entire and absolute liberty of speech,
of the press and of the ballot, and the sacred
privilege of the habeas corpus."
"They will free the loyal States from* the
presence ot military encampments and of all
officers and soldier? physically able to take j
the field; thus re enforcing our armies at
least one-third.
"They will abolish the system of arbitrary
arrests for opinion's sake; they will abolish
provost and the entire system of j
military government in the o al States.
"They will offer the rebels lair and honor- j
able terms of peace, provided they will ground
the weapnos of their rebellion and come back
to the Union ; offering them the Constitution
of the United States on the one hand, and a
vigorous proseoution cf the war on the other.

NICHOLSON, NOV. 4, 1833.
MR. EDITOR :—I have been vainly locking,
during the past week, for the lazv atmos
phere, the floating cob web*, and other indi
| nations of Indian Summer—have indulged in
many vague fancies to account for its non-ap
pearance have ever wondered whether "hon
j est old Abe" has suspended it, as a military
t necessity. Indian Summer, to be sure is of n<>
I gr. at duration, and only cntn.-s to us a a
seeming regret for the departed glories ot the
season of wliich it is, in a small degree an
! epitome. When the woods are glowing with
autumnal splendor, and the chirping squirrels
are gathering their winter stores of brown
nuts—when the crisp leaves and dried branch
es crackle under the footsteps, and the hour
frost glitters and sparkles rn the morning
sunlight, reflecting prismatic hues from every
bush and tree as the glittering, and pearly
drops cling to the brown and golden-hued
leaves, it is glorious to bask in the hazy per
n.eating atmosphere of Indian Summer, lor
getfu! of present ills, an I living only in the
sad, melancholy, yet sweet memories of the
October has been more than a pleasant
month. It has been rich in fruitfulness to
tho farmer, and beautiful and health-giving to
the invalid idler; but the Indian Summer—
the last, lingering footsteps of the rosy month,
has strangely failed to maik it with it's pecul
iarly grateful presence. October of last year
f spent among the paw paw groves, rocky
fastness and wildly beautiful scenery of liar
pers Ferry—catching fish in the Potomac
and searching the romantic shores of the
Shenandoah, for wild grapes and other forage,
grateful to the usually hungry stomachs of
the blue-coat'ed servants of Uncle Sam. I
cannot, in conscience say that my piscatory
excursions were always so successful as I
could have wished, neither did the grapes
and other gunie always reach catnp in suffl
cicnt quantities to satisfy the appetites o*
messmates remaining there, but they were
seasons f enjoyment to me, and afforded ma.
Ny pleasant incidents to enliven the usual
monotony of military life.
Dear old, rusy,t tumble down Harpers
Ferry ! Strange how I came to love it—even
in its filthy ugliness—and the wild mountain
scenery by which it is surrounded. Mry

what a world of memories are conjured by
the . eminiscence of just a year past. Burn

the greater portion of the " Grand army of
tlie P>t> mac," and " Little Mac' the ideal of
that army was there too. All were fresh
from the i attle field o! Autietam, and every
man a veteran hero, at least m h.s own esti
mation. II>w weary of listening to tin;
r.p*ated tale, told Hound the camp fire, I
sometimes became; and how many times out
of very weariness, I have wandered alone in
the grand <>! d woods, or climbed the rocky
fissures which girded the dashing, noisy Shen
But I hate wandered from my theme, and
indulged the inclination to do s<> a! too great
length to again resume it.
School mat'ers, for this Di-tnet, are, I am
informed, settled for the winter. The butH
ing formerly known as the N cholom Acade
my i? to be, or has been, rented, and a graded
school under the supervision of competent
teachers, is to be opened' soon. This ts a
step in the right direction. The district
schools build a suitable hotis* and fbus pr<>

The apple trade has been quite busk, during
the past few weeks fair, picked fruit bring

far from being " a drug in the market," prices

The bridge at Bacon's is not yet completed
and travelers must suffer much inconvenience
should a rise of water make fording difficult,
if nor impossible, as has been the case once
already during the past autumn. Scircity of
labor is, I believe, the principal reason for
the delay in its completion.
Messrs. Brisbin and Cook, the President
and Superintendent of the Railroad, paid this
Depot a short visit yesterday—coming up
from S:ranton on an extra. The object of
the visit, if it had any other than a general
inspection of the road, has not transpired
John is known, however, to have more than
a passing fancy for horse flesh, where it is
properly made up and gives promise of supe
rior speed and the other good qualities which
make horses valuable, and It is jaist possible
that Esquire Tlallstead's blacks may have
been the attraction.
Our friend Kin? has returned from his vis
it to Gotham and the country round about,
and resumed his rather onerous duties in the
Depot office. He seems not to have lost hts
old fondness-fora joke, with aspic •of humor
in it, but wears the most abominably h"melv
city cut coat, that I hare seen for many a
Ion? day Perhaps I may, in time, become
accustomed to it. as the ladies did to hoops,
and adopt' the style and figure at some future
day. Who knows ?
The military furor has somewhat abated,
in this neighborhood, and the few who were
willing and anxious to volunteer are now
holding themselves off for substitutes. Some
have gone already, others are awaiting a rise
in prices.
My next I hope to indite you from another
locality, less barren in general items of inter
est then. Until then, adieu.

Say to our drafted boys
in a public manne to report themselves ac
Cording to notice. The Board will give them
a lull, fair and candid examination, and make
a proper disposition of their cases. Let thein
banish all fears that poltical bias will rule
agauist theui. Parties havng legal grounds
i (or exemption should get competent Counsel
ito prepare and put their matters in shape
which will enable the Board m< re readily to
comprehend the c'aim relied upon, and they
1 will obtain a decision in accordance with the
! merits of the case [.resented. Fairness and
justice has so far prevailed in all cases, that
; I most cheerfully bear testimony to the un
par'iality and efficiency of the Boird.
Capt Manville, the provost marshall enjoys
the reputation ol candor and honesty, he aims
ito do right. M. C. Grier the Commissioner,
Examines a witness in a legal like way,
I aiulas his voice rings our you would be re
; minded of Judge Grier of the U. S. Courl }
; whose brother he is. The name of Grier has
[ done honor to the bench, has graced the bat,
and elevated the cause of religion from the
pulpit, A name thus honored, will not be
j tarnished by unfair action now. If any error
should occur, it will be on the side of mercy.
I Dr. Bafcer, the Surgeon, is a gentleman to
meet; he is said to be well qualified for the
j position assigned him—if any one doubt let
I llietn make inquiry of Dr. J. C. Becker of
j our Borough, who has been treated with
marked consideration by the gentlemen com
posing the Board.
The action of the Board justifies me in raa
! king this statement. Ido so the more will
j ingly for the reason, thai whilst we differ in
politics, we do not in what pertains to the
duties of their high position, holding as it
were, the lives of men in their hands—the
happiness, or misery, of wives and children,
being at their control.
Let no man's name in Wyoming County be

my must attach to all such cases that time
will not efface. So far our sons have re

do so.

Written For The Democrat
Christianity vs. the Negro.
Negro equality rules the hour ; threatening
clouds hang over us ; the land is draped in
mourning ; the judgment* of God are falling
heavily upon u, but still the preachers seem
intent upon nothing so ranch as to break
down the constitution and free the negro. It
f fear nl to witness the inroads which this,
accursed doctrine is making upon Christianity j
There appears to be au active competition
between the preachers and the imbecile abo
litioti leaders as to which shall furnish for
'his uusanctified purpose, this unholy negro
war, the greatest amount of fuel. The con
test is still doubtful, in abuse and he* and
-landvting of respectable citizens, the pleach
er.* meyjustlj claun the veid<c> ; but few il j
any f the abolition and secti-tial fader* can j
vie scandal with the so called h use of wm- ;
ship. In meanness 'he preachers clearly have j
the precedence. Brotherly fellowship i* j
mea*ured by the amount of negro rqmhii 1
you possess instead oi earliest effort to nft -i j
acceptable worship to God. The service-' ar-' J

and advance the abolition cause. Sermon* ;

keep the te->ph- under the influence of the
gospel*. A-o abolition sermon, or a political >
one, i preached weekly, and in all the ser
men* and prayers for old Aire and the Cabi j
net, there is not a breath in the II dy-ghooi I
—christian* never mistake such a bteath—all |
of this is done to revive the lagging interests, j
not of religion, nor for the furtherance of;
Ch:i*t's cause, but f-.r the nigger.
We object to those expedients tinder trie j
pretence of polluting Christ's cause. They |
are directly con rary to all the example* ;
giv-n u* bv Christ and his Apostles.
Never had Christianity such formidable ob
stacles to encounter as at the ppc*ent day ;
gag and may gag are joined together
Slavery did exist when the Saviour was j
on earth, and He declares that He k< came not
to destroy the law, but to fulfil the law-''
Now he6e so called preachers undertake to
quote scripture to justify themselves in this
abolition cause. About all they can find i*
that we must do by our neighbors as we
would they should do by us. So we suppose
according to their teachings if you 6teal ne
groes vou do God's service.
Paul, when the servant was converted un- j
derhis preaehing, sent him back to hs master. !
Y"U cannot find in the acts of the apostles
or in their epistles any allusion to any practice I
that bears the slightest resemblance to the
modern c<>n.rivances for the abolition of
slaves. What they did- in behalf of their
religion was done directly they made sacrifi
ces for Christ. Now when the claims of the
gospel are generalv admitted, the church can
not be sustained without catering to the de
praved appetites of miserable, dishonest, abo
lition tricksters. It must be. indeed' in a fal- j
len condition in communities this doc- i
trine is generally believed —the spirit of
Christ is utterly wanting. Whatever doc
trines it. may hold to in theory it cannot be
a christian community ; it lacks the vital ele
ment, they practically educate the people to
impiety". Pure religion requires no' merely
right action* but right feeling; it d<>e* not dis
tribute its blessings according to the mere
showing of the subscription book—mite of
the widows given out of love to G>>d out
weighed in the balances of the sanctuare, the
golden offering of the ostentatious pharisees
who spoke and acted to be seen and beard of
men. I is not ivery one that says Lord
Lord, but He that does the will of Him
who seeth in secret. The motive fixes the
character to the action. The doing of pious
acta for selfish ends is stoutly repressed by
God. " Who is there even among you, that
would shin the door for naught, neither do
you kindle fire on mine altar for naught
I have no pleasure in you smith the Lord of
II uta, neither will I accept an offering at
your hands." It does seem as if the Devil
has so entwined hinielfaround those preach
ers that they perform the most solemn acts
of 'lie church for selfish ends. The regulari
ty of the children in the sabbath school is
rewarded by a political harangue, or a negro
portrait in their little papers ; the lessons are
learned not. that the scholars may be made
wise unto salvation, but that they may hate
the Sou'h, and thereby receive the praises of
the abolition preachers. We believe that re
vivals are sometimes sought to abol it ionize
the converts. This constant urging of these
considerations that terminate in the negro
equality, will if heeded, make the pure selfish;
their piety will become corrupted in its very
foundation. When children are trained up in
the sabbath school and brought into the
church under the influence of such motives,
what can be looked for but that the rising
generation should become the devotees of ac
cursed amalgamation rather than the spiritual
worshipppers of the true God 1 Thus under
the outward garb of piety the rankest implici
ty is promoted ; they seek to unite the whites
with the blacks by preaching that a negro
man is as good as a white woman. Thev
would join together in loving hartnonv what
God has put forever asunder—.they obliterate
the distinction between the two races, their
avowed object is to keep the people under the
influence of Christianity. To accomplish this
they will pray lone and loud for this imbe
cille administration and denounce every one
as copperheads that does not join thetn in
their prayers. To attempt to lead men in
this way to deny themselves, take up their
cross and follow Christ, is as wise as would
bo the eff.rt to reform a drunkard bv giving
him wine.

SICKLER—Of Apoplexy, at the State Lunatic Hos
pital at Harmourg, on Wednesday the 4th inst.,
JOHN SICHLER, a resident of Overfield Township,
this County, in the 52d year of hi? age.
About eighteen months ago, the deceased, prostra
ted by disease, which produced a partial paralysis of
the organs of speech, the brain being affected by the
same cause. Early in July last he was placed in
charge of Dr. John Curwen of the State Lunatic
Hospital for treatment Under the care of the able
physician of that excellent institution, his bodily
health was apparently restored, but his mind bad re
ceived a tatal blow. He had an apolectic shock on
the 3rd inst., which he survived* but a few hoars.
Mr Sickler was one of the most thorough and en
ergetic business men of his day. Hone .t and up
right in all his dealings with his fellow men ; be mer
ited and secured their confidence. Among those who
knew him, his word was as good as a bond. To the
poor h<> was ever hospitable and kind None ever
appealed o bis charity in vain—none left his door
anhungered. Thoagb not a professed christiao, he
encouraged the preaching of the ilospel and the
mninUioance of Saobath- Schools, by liberal contri
butions to their support Bat now he haa passed
from taong ; h has gont to his reward-
