of Columbia County:
ai:xTi.uMEN, Wo deem It our duty
as Democrats to call your attention to
circumstances connected with tho recent

with which our county is connected;
nnd we do tlds with a view especially to
the great Democratic party In general,
and of tho interests of the counties with
which wu are politically connected in
At tho recent Democratic Convention
of this county, John Snyder and R. C,

tatlvo Conferees on behalf of said conn
ty, and instructed by tho Convention as

ceth instant, for tho purpose of nomi
nating a candidate for Assembly, with
instructions to support tho choice of
Montour County. Provided, said county

didate for State Senator trom Columbia
This resolution was unanimously
adopted by tho Democratic Convention
of Columbia County; but at tho meet
ing of tho Representative Conferees of
tho Counties of Columbia and Montour,
Mr. Thomas Chulfant, tho candidate for
Member from Montour, Insisted that tho
proviso contained in said resolution was
uncalled for and unnecessary, for tho
reason tluit tlio nominee for Stato Sena-
tor was- already conceded to Columbia
County; and Mr. Chalfunt himself, as
well as his Conferees, Joseph II. Camp
bell and John M,'WiUiama, Ess., as
also his personal friends who liad ac
companied him from Montour to Blooms
lmrg, pledged themselves to bo on hand
at the timo of the coming Senatorial
Conference, to fcecurc, beyond tho possi
bility of a doubt, the nomination of
Hon. Levi L. Tate, as candidate for
Stato Senator, in tho spirit of tho above
resolutlou. After this pledge tho Rep
resentative Conferees of Columbia Coun
ty ga"vo tho nomination of Member to
Mr. Chalfant. Rut what happened at
tho Senatorial Conference'.' (It was
held, as all know, after Mr. Chalfant
was nominated as member.) Why,
neither Mr. Chalfant nor any person
representing him, nor his Interest as
candidate, nor the feeling of Montour
County in favor of tho sentiment em
bodied in tho foregoing resolution, was
present; ana although this Senatorial
Conference lasted two days, and one
hundred und twenty-one ballotings wero
had, and although many opportunities
wero afforded to tho Montour Conferees
to securo tho nomination of lion. Levi
li. Tato, yet not a single vote did either
of tho Conferees of Montour County
cast in favor of the choice of Columbia
County, which choice was made in sol
emn convention. Comment is unneces
sary. It may bo remembered that, under tho
apportionment bill of 1837, the nomina
tion for Stato Senator was given to Sny
der County, tho smallest In tho District,
and'a county giving a majority against
us; thus passing by, for tho time, tho
claims of tho heavy Democratic major
ity or Columbia. A liko tiling lias,
through gross misrepresentation and po
litical intrigue, happened now, in pal
pable violation of conceded claims.
Tho Democracy of Columbia County
demand that not only tlioso pledges but
her claims shall bo respected. This, wo
say, after full consultation with thoso
who aro truo friends of Constitutional
liberty as well as of political honesty ;
una it is asked that, In vindication of
right, and in rebuke of violated pledg
es, Hon. Lovi L. Tate, tho choieo of tho
Democracy of Columbia County in Con

as tho nomluco for Representative.

This nomination Imposes upon mo un

1 am Induced to adopt this courso from
having Just learned that In Columbia
County a volunteer or Irregular candi

that an attempt will lie mado to induce
intelligent and faithful Democrats of
that county to violate their party uages
by voting against tho regular nominee

I call your attention, fellow-citizens,
to tho fact that very few of tho persons
whoso namcsarc subscribed to that paper

of the matters set forth as facts in that

woreobtainod by private solicitation, on
false and unfair representations, without
any opportunity being afforded to mo

This disorganizing project for defeat
Ing tho regular Democratic nomluco of
tho district was concocted by a few mis
chievous spirits in secret, and sprung
suddenly upon tho people without any
opportunity for explanation or defence
on my part.
I am informed by several of thoso
whoso names appear to this disorganiz
ing document that they permitted the
uso of their names under a misconcep
tion of the facts, and am further inform
ed nnd believe that tho names of others
wero used without their consent.
I emphaticieally deny, and am pre
pared to disprove, tho material state
ments contained in that paper relating
to my connection with the Senatorial
nomination, which aro made tho pretext
for tills opposition to me, and 1 promise
them that this shall be done most thor
oughly; for although the matters al
leged, if true, would not Justify opposi
tion to a regular nomination, I am de
termined that no Imputation of u single
improper act, which is false, shall rest
I did uso my influence in good faith
to havo the Senatorial nomination go to
Columbia County after tho Montour
Conferees should give a proper support
to tho candidate of their own county,
and at my Instanco Mr. Leldy and Mr.
M'Cormlck attended tho llrst day, and
Messrs. Campbell and Ammcrmau on
the second day of tho Conference, to se
curo such result. Sickness In my fami
ly prevented my own attendance.
1 now call upon my Democratic fellow-citizens
to stand by tho regular
nominations of their party, ono and all
of them, which havo been mado in ac
cordance with tho usages of tho party,
and to oppose all attempts, eomo from
what quarter they may, to defeat any
of tho nominees, and to embarass us in
our great contest for tho complete resto
ration of tho Union, und for placing tho
Government again under Democratic
control. Thomas Chalfant.
Danville, September II, Ml,
Wunotico that sinco General Grant
has prominently stood by President
Johnson, somo of the Radical speakers
and newspapers have been beginning,
in a timid and indirect way, to make
assaults upon him. Grant 1ms such a
great and solid po-ltlon in tho confi
dence and affections of tho American
people, that It will not do at llrst to de
nounce 1dm as a traitor, tyrant, and
drunkard ; but they first hurl such epi
thets with temendous fury at tho Presi
dent, nnd then insinuate cautiously that
Grant, by countenancing tho courso of
tho President, is at least not doing pre
cisely tho Radical tiling. They hope
that thus they will shako the con lldenco
that tho nation reposes in him, and
when onco they aro ablo to do tills in
the smallest degree, they will proceed
to open bigger and louder guns upon
him, till at last thoy can pour in hot
shot and big balls as iiot and heavy ns
thoso with which they bombard Presi
dent Johnson himself. Only tho other
day tho Tribune used language toward
others of our generals who aro only
less renowned than General Gcant.which
shows what sort of epithets he may ex
pect If bo docs not quickly eomo out In
favor of Rutler's policy of hanging all
tho Southerners who lust year surren
dered nt Appomatox Court Houso and
Tho dlfllculty about Grant agreeing
to Uutler's policy, would bo in tho pos
sibility that tho Radicals might yet or
der him to practically carry It out ; and
wo rather think ho kicks now because
ho knows certainly ho would havo to
kick then. Ho would not accept tho
post of head hangman, nor could ho bo
induced to erect a gallows for the brave
Rebel whoso soldierly feelings ho oven
declined to wound by nccepting his
proilered sword. It Is possibly for this
very reason that ISutler Is urging his
hangman policy. Ho sees In It ids only
hope of obtaining tho position now held
by tho Illustrious man whom ho so
heartily hates. General hanks, nlo,

at tho order of President Johnson. Tho
Mussachuetts General left this omin
ous question unanswered. Wo think

Gr.NEltAL IIowaiid has received from
Richmond, Virginia, the facts of n case
that Involves the very important Issue,
whether tho sentence of a military com
mission, properly organized, and Its
verdict olllcially approved, shall bo set
nsldo by tho civil authority. On Janu
ary nineteenth, 1SU0, Robert Drifting
ham was nrrested at 1-ortress Monroe
for tho murder of a negro. Ho was
tried and found guilty by a military
commission organized by order of Gen
oral Miles, nnd the sentenco was ap
proved and promulgated by tho Secre
tary of War. On the eighteenth of
March the prisoner was remanded to the
Virginia State Prison at Richmond, and
last week, on a writ of habeas corpu,
was taken beforo Judge Lyons, of Hus
tings Court of that city, and by him de
livered over to Mayor Mayo for a trial
beforo ills court on a criminal offence
The decision given for this action was
that sinco tho restoration of civil law
tho enforcing of military law against
citizens was rendered null and void
Drittlngham was admitted to five hun
dred dollars ball by tho Mayor, to op-
pear for trial November first. General
Schofleld applies for instructions as to
whether ho shall rearrest the culprit or
not. Tho whole case lias been referred

Dr. A. P. Dostle, nt tho mais meeting
on Friday evening last, twenty-seventh
ultimo. This speech was delivered
from tho platform in front of tho Me
chanic's Institute, to tho hi-go assem
blage of negroes on I'liillppa Street, and
must not, therefore, bo confounded with
tho still moro violent and Incendiary
address mado by htm, about an hour
subsequent, from tho City Hull steps, to
colored crowd which followed tho
band of music from tlio Institute Tlio
citizens to whom wo nro indebted for
tlio report which is appended, is willing
to tuko oath, if necessary, that it con-
;dns nothing but tlio truth :
Dr. Dostle, in tlio courso of his re
marks on Friday night, said : I want
tho negroes to havo the right of suil'rage,
and we will give them this right to voto.
Tliero will be another meeting huro to
morrow night, and on Monday night I
wnn t vnu to eomo in vour nower. I
want no cowards to come. I want only
" v "
bravo men to come, who will stand by
us, and wo will stand by them. Como
then in your power to that meeting, or
never l-o to another political meeting in
tlds Stato. "Wo havo three hundred
thousand black men with white hearts,
A!m, ono hundred thousand good and
truo Union white men, who will light
for and beside tlio black race, against tlio
three hundred thousand hell-bound reb

men sworn in, may interfere with tlio
Convention: therefore, let all bravo
men, not cowards, come hero on Mon
day. There will be no such puerile af-
fairasat Memphis; Aid if interfered with
the streets of SS'civ Orleans will run ivith
The black raco with nino hundred
millions is bound to rule the white raco
of threo hundred millions. The Rebels
say they havo submitted and accept the
situation, but want you to do tho work
and they will do the voting, and will
you throw over them " tlio mantle of
charity and oblivion?"
"Wo will!" "Wo will!" was tho
unanimous response of tho excited
throng, to which Dr. Dostio vehement
ly replied: "No, by God! wo won't,
We aro bound to havo universal suf
frage, though you havo tho traitor An
drew Johnson against you," etc.
Li tlds nnd other speeches of liko
character lies tho wholo causo of tho
bloody and distressing scenes enacted
on Monday lost, upon tlio very spot
whero tlio inllamniatory languago was
uttered. Had tlio leaders or tho negro
clique pursued a similar couro to that
of Mayor Monroe, and advised tho col
ored people to keep away from tho Con
ventiun, and carefully avoid collisions
with their opponents, as tlio Mayor did
tlio white citizens, nil would havo been
well. Even hail tlio ex-Convention
members been arrested, by vlrtuo of nn
order of court, It would then havo been
performed in n quiet and peaceably
manner, and justice would havo been
done them ; for had tho District Coi
decided against them, it cannot certainly
bo charged that tho Supremo Cour
would havo boon inllueuccd by lirel
udlco against tho men or their prin
ciples. Dut tlio moro closely tho atlair
is Investigated, tlio clearer it becomes
manifest that n collision bet wen our citi
