, Tin loll owing communication from Wii.-
mam GiRT)M, Es-j. will at once put down
thj base slander to which it refers. 'Siuirc
Girt is a leading Member of tho Mothn-
dist Episcopal Church; & vohntirily mikes
this ru' licatio.i from the purest motives r
contradicting a rumi r which lie knows is
false, and which wes rt up for no other
purpose then to injure Mr. Fruit's charac-:
Mr. Ingrrm: I cm credibly informed ;
that a s'an.lernus report is published hi the
last Danville Intelligencer" respecting the
'conduct of John Fruit, Esq. at our Into
Camp-meeting. The charge is without
foundation, and only got up to injure Mr
Fruit's election. For my own purl, I can
state that Mr. Fruit put up with me at my
house during the meeting; and while at my
house, or in attendance at the meeting, be
haved himself worthy of a gentleman. 1
have not even "heard of any unbecoming
conduct of Mr. Fruit at the meeting, and
feel satisfied in my mind that he was not
in the noisy party who disturbed the meet
ing. Indeed, every person Who is acquaint
ed with Mr. Fruit knows that he is not a
'noisy person at any time, and particularly
while attending public worship.
I have not been requested by Mr. Fi-uft,
or any of his friends, to interfere in this
matter; but feeling it my duty to contra
"diet the report, I give the foregoing state
'tnent over my own signature.
Hemlock', Oct. 3, 1837.
Mr. E litor: I am an old Democrat have
always supported the men and measures of
the democratic party and have also uni
versally supported regular nominations.
But I will not do so at this election. I will
support the following Ticket, and all my
neighbours will do the sanicr.
JOHN nOW MAN.
Isaac C. Johnson.
John P. Davis.
As to Evan O. Jackson, I am satisfied
that he is a Hank man in disguise; and with
tory ancestors he seems to inherit tory
principles, and hypocritically attempts to
deceive the democratic party. Last year
he voted for the Mammoth was always
against making stockholders and director
of Banks responsible for the amount of
their issues and consequently cannot be a
democrat in principle. lie is "a Wolf in
Sheep's clothing;" and as I would snnrw r
support an open enemy than a clandestine
opponent, I will support John Bowman,
who is at least an honest man and a good
citizen. Jackson, too, opposes the regular
nominated ticket. His paper at Berwick
has thrown offsoiiio of the regularly nonii-
nalcd candidates it wns done through his
advice, anil the aid of Felty Best; and w
must therefore punish his attcinpl to disor
ganize tho party, and defraud the honest
yeomanry out of their votes. Then 1 go
against him, and his disorganizing eo -leagues,
feeling sure that I am right, and the
majority of the people of Columbia county
will sanction my course.
A GREENWOOD FARMER.
Mr. E litor: I have examined the votes
of Evan O. Jackson during his democratic
services in the legislature, and so far as my
researches have discovered his opinions 1
find him a uniform and decided Hank man.
Yes, gentlemen deniociats, your professing
Evan 0. Jackson, is a practical Bank
man! His voles oil tho West Branch
Bank, and the Susquehanna County Bank,
ore of the purest Biddle stamp. He oppn
sei any limitation to their issue of rags
he orvoscs making stockholders personally
responsible and hesM;Jors the chatter of
every Rag Machine on the old and danger
bus Banking principles. lie voted against
the repeal of the United States Bank char
ier he is fi favor of tho suspension of
specio payments and if re-elected will uso
every cxcrlioh to sustain tho present perni
cious Bankinir system. Then I cannot
give mm n y support-
Tnnns.PiPi.1 Intr mier for anv oflice. I Will
i T iiiitt.ir! n
vote for John Bowman, and I will tell you
m. ii t n , of practical
business habits an industrious and intel
ligent farmer an honest man; He is not
j much of a party mnn ho never was an
Office-hunter and lie lias always so con-
ducted himself as to secure the friendship
of acquaintances, and the esteem of his
neighbours and fellow-citizens. He is no
a Bank man. lie is in favbrof refcrming
l'm present Banking system, and'if elected
will restrict the issue of Hank paper, and
make stockholders personally liable for tin.1
debts of tin B inks.
Tlion my choice is made. I will not
support Evan 0. Jackson because he would
hetrny Wis trust, and I will support John
Bowman because I know that he will hon
estly and faithfully represent the wishes of
Mr. E litor: You will please announce
the following Ticket, as the one which will
receive the support of our Township:
I. C. JOHNSON.
, For Treasurer:
JOHN P. DAVIS.
This course is prompted by the base
dictations of the Berwick Sentinel & Dan
ville Intelligence!', both of which papers are
controlled by a f.iotion of office-hunters,
headed by Evan 0. Jackson; and their dis
organizing spirit must he put down to pre
serve the union and harmony of 'the demo
cratic party herea'fter, and to prevent the
few from attempting by management to put
down tho will of the many.
. Mr. Ingram: As an old Democrat I can
not but approve of y ur politicsl course, in
endeavoring to sustain the us-ages of the
parly. As an editor, you have acted wilh
that spirit and adherence to principle", which
should have governed tho course of the
other pr'fessing democratic papers of this
county. Hut if you support the whole tick
et you will please allow one of your pa
trons to express his opinions, which arc
simply in opposition to a sett of Wire-workers
and demagogues', who have always de
termined on carrying their schemes of in
trigue and disorganization in opposition to
the will and wishes of the majority of the
democratic party. Jackson, Best, and a
few Others, h.ive always went against the
ticket havB always brought out volunteer
candidates, when they fnile.1 in obtaining
the nomination of their f.ivoritcr. Shall
the do so still, an 1 vet be supported by
the party J I, for one; answer NO! They
must be put down J icksnn mUf't he de
filled and his Mcllnnry & his Lazarus
must receive the same fate. I will vote
the following ticket, and you may rest as
s ii red that nearly all the Democrats of Mount
Pleasant, Greenwood, Madison, and Sugar
Loaf will vote the same way.
JOHN P. DAVIS.
If.I-iekson, and Mcllnnry, and Lazaru-"
are defeated we will hereafter not he troub
led with Disorganization and Volunteer
candidates; and our party will move wilh
union and harmony, and always secure the
success of the rcgulaily nominated Ticket.
A JEFFERSON DEMOCRAT.
Mr. Ingram: Notwithstanding your sup
port of regular nominations, we wish you
to let the people of Columbia county know
that we are determined to oppose the elec
tion of Evan O. Jackson, and give our votes
for John Bowman. Tho character of Mr.
Bowman is known to us; and his capacity
for the office of a legislator is far superior
to Jackson's. This determination Is form-
ed on seeing tho course pursued by Evan
O. Jackson, and his Berwick paper; and
wo arc determined to punish him as a Dis
organizer and Factionist. When such
men attempt to control the popular will,
and set at defiance tho usages of the demo
cratic party, we as Democrats, shall mete
out a just reward for their treachery, by

fiemtnpHon of Specie Payment
Every thing looks well for an early resump
tion of specie payments by the' hanks of
this country, a measure which every true
friend of his country should most earnestly
desire. Exchange on England has decli
ned, apd we understand that good bills have
been sold as low as fifteen per cent, and
when we consider the immense value of
our cotton crop which will soon be fairly
in (be market and shipped to Europe, wr-.
niav reasonably anticipate a further decline,
and we Fhould not at all he surprised to see
it at ten per cent.(wliich is in fact par,) in a
very short time. Exchange on France
may bo quoted at fif nominal. Specie is
dull at five per cent, and rapidly declining.
Treasury drafts were at lj percent, in
New ork on Saturday. Should our ex
pectations wilh regatd'to the decline in Ex
change he realized, there will then' exist no
impediment to tin early return to specie
payments, as specie will' not be required for
foreign remittance. Phil. Herald.
