Mavxlirss-iirceri, -April '
IS hereby given, that the Democrats
of Pike county, will meet in the town of
Bowling Green, on the first aturday m
May next, for the purpose of Organizing i
the party, and nominating canuidutcs lor
the approiehing August election.
April 13th, 1844.
The Methodists will hold a protracted
meeting in Bowling Green, to commence
on the first Saturday in May. Several
preachers are expected to be prce:it.
SNcxt Saturday is the day sot a
purt" for a meeting ef the Democracy of
Pike, for the purpose of nominating can
didates to be run al the approaching Au
gust election. It is hoped that every De
mocratic voter in the county will re
spond to the call, and come up in solid
phalanx, prepared to take part in the de
liberations of the electing. Let every
one come up determined net to be in
fluenced, in any nctian he mr.y take, by
personal or local preelections, (except
r o far as the success of democratic tick
et may demand it,) and all will go on
harmoniously. The interests of the par-t-
call loudly for concert : cf action.
There is too much &t stake in the com
ing contest, to suffer local disputes or
discordance cf any kind, to come in to
the aid of our opponents. Much de
pend teo upon the men that may
be brugl.t cut. TYe should endea
vor to select men for the Legislature, !
who are not only competent to success
fully defend the principles of the party
upon the stump, but men who can con
cenirato the vote of the pr.rlv.
know something of the cbili'y of the
Whig nominees, and somewhat of their
personal popularity; it therefore iriy be
well, in making our nominations for the
I.egislatnre, to keep these thing
es in '
The'Whigs have succeeded in elect
ing a member of Congress in the 1 3th
District cf Pennsylvania, to 11 the va
cancy occasioned by the death of Mr.

of the unrepresented Districts of Maine,
a Democrat was choen.

Whigg carried twelve of the Councilmen,

There were three candidates for Mayor
a Democrat, Whig and Native.
Hon. Waddy Thompson, our minister
