It is not our purpose now to predict who
will bo selected as tho nomineo for tho
Presidency, but to counsol harmonious
action in order that tho Democracy pto
sent a united and unbroken front to tho
enemies of the country. Wo believe that
harmouy will prevail at Paltimoio and
that a good nomination will bo made
ono that will conviuco Old Abo Lincoln
himself that ven rail splittina is fur moro
profitaldo than running fur President.
Tho opponents of tho Democracy nro
praying that the elements of discord inny
again bo let looso in tho Convention, and
that a cordial action may bo prevented,
hnowing full well that without such
contingency their hopes of success have
no fonndati6n. It is now tho goneral
impression howovor, that wisdom and
prudonco will triumph at Jiultimoro, which
of cotirso, vjll load us to complete victory
in November next. Tho Democracy ap

designed to advance their paity's interests

of couise, iho wrongs and sufferings of the

An cxtia sheet iceeived from tho press of
the Mt Vernon Xacs, Mt. Vernon, Linn
county, Jown, contains tho following
thrilling account of tho tornado and its
disastrous effects iu that quarter. This
extra shoot is datod Monday, Juno 4th,
and its contents wo hero givo in full:
We havo to record, thi3 morning, one of the
moat terrible visitations that ever desolated a
country Inhabited by men. About six o'clock last
night a terrific whirlwind, or tornado, passed, a
mile houtli ot our town. Irom West lo bast.
When first seen, probably bi.v or seven miles
away, it li ul tlio appearance ol n largo uiacK
shaft or column, shaped like nnutirl"ht liourchm,
extending fiom a tremendous thieatcnlng cloud,
winch lor some time mil hcen hatizine over the
West, to lho ground. Hundreds matched it as
snciit on its course, scemhiKlv bearlnc directly to
waul Mt. Vernon. It was attended with a heavy
roar, a? ol'a hundred trains of cars, branches of
trees could bo seen hi tho air, while Its changing
lb ii n, and tho Hakes of clouds thronn from iti
side thowed its nhirlhig motion.
When within ti tulles ol' us, while people were
seeking safety In cellnM, or, ns in some cases,
5eeKiiiir saieiv in cellars, or, us 111 hoiho eases,
wildly nbnnt the streets, it veered on I.
course, and bivept by in full sight sublime but
Hardly had It passed ere n half-dressed man,
bleeding fiom wounds upon bis head, anil reeling
upon his horse, rodo furiously into town calling
for help. Talking incoherently, ho leported per

It unlet IU miles nest, Known as St. Mary's. In
a few minutes, hundreds n ere on their way there
including Drs. C.uli.ut, llelden, Gordon and Car

beggars description. Wo had imagined the liorlors

large barns of Mr. James llurgo Two of his chil

brother of K. I). Wain, of this place, nnd a young
man by tho name of Columbu3 Sparks, happening
to lie in or near tnc liouso nt tlio lime wero niter-
wn.ds found dead. As the blast nnm-oached, Ste-:

up, nnd spring from his horse, was afterward
picked up mortally injured. Several persons wero

A little c.islwntd.the house and barn of Mr.

his life. Clmoby, Mr. Joscphus Smith nnd fam

hoit'so was torn down, his hugu bam turned partly
around mideanied fifty feet.
The power and force of this "demon of tho ele

the path of its fury less thin nu hour after it went

And yet the track of the whirling demon was
not more than twenty rods in width wo speak
the central force which wmked thu destiiictiou;
outside of that thero was a mighty wind, but no
such traces of power were left.
On eastwaid it continued its wild wotk. As
passed south of Us, another one of less power
seemed to form ju.-t north of town and bear otl'to
wiirds I.ihon. lletwecn here and there it was
met by a fragment which had broken away from
tho main storm, when, with increased fury it swept
hoi tit of that Village, ovci throw ing two houses,
foitim.itely vacant, lho depot building and rating

Wo weio told by Dr. Hammer, this morning,
that when ho observid it, it would sometimes
spiing up, and, for a space, do no damage, then
an instant it would swoop down, destroying every
thing before it. lleio we noticed nothing of the
kind, it always hugged the earth with the embrace
