In less than two weeks trom (his date,
the Union voters of this District will be
called upon, in delegate Convention, to
place in nomination a candidate for Con
gress. Never was there greater necessity
for a sober, deliberate and judicious choice.
Never were more momentous interests at
stake. If, during the days when the rebel
lion was in arms' we needed trusty legisla
tors', so do we now need them when rebel
lion is sneaking into the high places of
government, endeavoring to gain by treach
ery what it could not by force. All -feel
ings of personal prejudice, local demands,
and like minor considerations should be set
aside in view of the graver issues resting
upon the result of the canvass this fall.—
The undoubted, the undeniable choice of
the great majority of the Union men of
this District, is the present able member*,
Hon. I. DOSXELLT, who has for two terms
so well and faithfully represented Minneso
ta in Congress. The most rigid scrutiny
fails to detect any flaw in his record, polit
ically or otherwise. He has never flinch
ed in discharging his whole duty to his
district, his party and the country. He
bears the reputation of being one of the
most indefatigable workers in Congress,
and his success in obtaining the passage
of measures beneficial to the State has
wrung praise even from those who were
loth to give it, as witness the following
from the Lake Superior (Wis.) Gazette:
Minnesota has always been blessed with indethtig
ble members of Congress. They get railroad land
grants and all else they ask for. And to crown their
success, they have obtahiedjnn'appropriation of $50,
000 for a Custom House, Poet office, and Federal Court
Not a word, has ever been breathed
against Lis honesty and uprightness, save
by one or two sheets, well known as calum
niators from choice, falsifiers by profession,
and ready at lies from long habii. Their
charges are but the foulness that can pro
ceed from any unclean source, and disgust
butnever convince. In point of ability, he
ranks with Congressmen by many years
his seniors and of much longer experience.
In evidence of this, we call attention io an
extract from the Boston Traveler, published
on the first page of this issue. As a parli
amentarian he was acknowledged by
parties to be the best in the State, even
before he entered Congress, and while
Lieut. Governor of the Slate.
There is also another point well worthy to
be considered, and which is thus clearly
stated by the New York Independent:
Long service is needed to make Senators and Repre
sentatives thoroughly proficient and useful. It is
generally better to re-elect a tried man than to send
a fresh one who begins as an apprentice where his
predecessor endod as a master.. Massachusetts prac
tices this shrewdness—returning the samo members
again and again, till they inevitably rise to the head
of committees and become the leading spirits in Con
Minnesota needs this experience—the
great Union party needs it. It would be
as foolish as it would be useless to say
that it is not a powerful lever in the hands
of any people who are wise enough to use
it. The thorough acquaintance with busi
ness, the personal influence with other
members, the good will of heads of depart
ments are all the work of time, and are ad
vantages deliberately thrown away when a
new Representative i» exchanged for an
And, further, the political issue is fairly
made up between the President and Con
gress. The people understand it, and
they desire, and the} have a right to de-where
mand, that they be allowed to express it
^unqualifiedly. Mr. Donnelly is closely
identified with the acts of the -late session
of Congress touching all questions of re
construction his position is Well known,
and it isfitthat he be the 'candidate by
whom these principles shall be endorsed
or condemned in the approaching cam
paign. The Union men know that he is
tried and true. Others of the candidates
mentioned for the position may be equally
true and reliable, but the country is with
out the same public evidence of the. fact
It would be unwise to exchange certainty
For these, and other reasons that might
be mentioned, we urge the nomination of
Mr. Donnelly, and we believe the selection
is warranted, nay demanded, by policy,
interest and justice, both toward the Dis
trict and the Union party.

St.CLOUD, MINK, Sept.3d, I860.
EDITOR DEMOCRAT.—I would respectfully presont
the nume of Lorcn W. Collins, of this County, as a
proper person to receive the nomination, by the com
ing Republican State Convention, for Clerk of the Su
preme Court. Mr. Collins served with distinction du
ring tho war iii the 7th Regiment Minn. Toils., and
all who know him can be a witness tohis bravery, abil
ity and patriotic impulses.
I know of no person from Northern Minnesota solic
itous of being placed upon the ticket iu the ensuing
election, and it is but right that we should be repre.
seuted there. Mr. Collins is a gentleman who would
do credit to the-position, a lawyer by profession, and
his past services to the couutry recommend him as a
fit subject for the consideration of the Convention.
His nomination would be a compliment, to his lato
comrades in arms and would give general satisfaction,
I believe. Hoping you can consistently rsnder him
such assistance as you are able, I am,
We can cordially endorse the statements
of "Observer" ooncerning the worth and
capability ot Gapt. Collins. Although but
recently become a citizen of this place, he
has wou many friends by his genial social
qualities, creditable deportment and admit
ted legal qualifications. Ithaa been justly'
claimed by many that, as the candidate for
State Auditor will undoubtedly be taken
from the southern portion of the State,
the Clerk of the Supreme Court be
longs to this sections Should Capt. Col
lins be tie nominee of the Convention, we
arc confident that the people would accept,
the selection, and, that he would satisfacto
rily dscharge the duties of the office.

A Newburg paper says the "old gen
tleman" must wag his tail injoy at the ar.
guments used by some persons in the late
Christian Convention in Albany, who essay
to make the difference between a man of
tiie world and a Christian as little as possi
ble. The Y. M. Christian Convention pro
posed, very sensibly, that "the difference
betwean a man of the world and a Chris
tian" should consist in conduct and not in
cant—-in doing good and not in abjuring
innocent and wholesome amusements under
pretense of piety.
