I'otlte Democratic PurtV ol Norfolk
A i spei purporting to bo n "Deuio
cratio Address" trom tbu "Domooratio
1 auipuigu Cuuimitteo of Norfolk
county" appeared some days ago in the
columns of tbu Norlolk daily newspa?
per*, and, while wo do' not doom it
uecessury for any vindication of our?
selves to uotieo the same, yet it is so
grossly misrepresenting tbat it may ho
due to you that some reply should be
made in a like public manner, in order
tbat no Democrat of tbe county may
be deceived by these impudent und uu
warrautcd pretenses ut a solf-cuusti
Hut let us review this remarkable
paper, which cau only be looked upou
as a campaign dodge for the purpose
of deceiving tbo honest Democrat:
Four years ugo tbu Deuiooreliu (uu
veutlou determined to uuine ouly two
Democratic uomiuees?tbut of Sheriff
and that of Commonwealth'? Attorney
?and by that ineuus secured these two
places t eretolore held bv Ucpubltcaus;
besides securing a majority of tbu
Hoard of Supervisors. 1 hen, as now,
some of thin ao called "Democratic
i'uinpaign Committee," by an indepen?
dent ticket, eud< nvorud to doleal Ibe
regular Democratic ?ituuiuueH.uud their
attitude i,on compels us to believe that
tUey hope to accomplish this year what
they Uliempte.1 in that.
A? tu Hit) policy of making nouiiiiu
turns tor all tlie county ollices, there
was tiii-< year a division ut opinion
among tbo Democrats o( the county.
Lint the undersigued always publicly
and privately auuutiuccd that ibey
would be governed by the action of
the Democratic Convention with re
gard tbareto, and we deuy ami de
uoiiucu us (also the statement tnat "no
option was left to voters otner than to
rainy this spoils coiubiue or throw
away their votes for hopeless candi?
dates," unless u meant to lie -aid that
tlie "'hopeless candidates" wero inde?
pendent or Holters' candidates.
Now, as to the oouvcmiou that as
siuibleit in Lesuer's Hull on tbe 17th
of April last: It la true that those who
call themselves "straightout Demo
erat?" (who have adopted the uauio, as
we believe, to impress upon thu public
the ideu that they are Democrats, aud
not masipiei'adiug os such?und whom
we cud "the bolters") euutested every
delegation elected favorable to us in
ibe district meetings, except one, that
ol Deep Creek, lu fanner's Creek
District Convention, where, by actual
count, our frieuda outnumbered theirs
tuore than live to one, lh?y refused to
participate, held auother ineetiug aud
sent ten eoutosltug delegates,
lu Pleasaut Crove Dtatiict Conven?
tion, according to the signatures of i
more tbuu 100 Democrats' who were'
preset,!, und who eertuied that our
? riends outnumbured theirs more than
two to oue, uud wbete they railroaded
through, with the assistance of dipt.
Went, auperintuuileut of Couuty Pub?
lic Schools, three delegates, without
regard to tue wishes of (ho Democrats
there assembled, and claimed lUem as
regular delegates by reason of the cer?
tificate of .1, W. Jordan, id the district
committee, who certified to Ins own
election as delegate,wheu the delegates
favorable to us had certificates signed
by tbe other lour members of tbo Die
triot Democratio Committee,
Thus, by chicanery and questionable
mauipulatious, tbey attempted to foist
upou the Democratic people of Nor
foik couuty u bogus Democratio con?
vention, uud this is tbe sum and sub
stance of tbeir claim to a majority of
Democrats lo the Leaner Hall Conven?
tion, Their acts but foreshadowed the
determined policy of these would tie
leaders of tbo Democratic party to
bold under uuy uud ml eiroumstauoes,
a boilers' convention, and they have
thus misrepresented tacts in order to
shield their treason to their party.
They confess that tbey Itoko in tlio
hall at Lesuer's fork, where the con?
vention was held. Was mich action
proper? Will such unwarranted pro?
ceedings bo sanctioned by the Demo?
crats oi the couuty'' It was uuworthy
tbe representatives of the great party
which tbey claimed to represent, ami
we can but beluve that suob notion
will be repudiated on election day by
tbo defeat oi their friends and sup?
Hut what arc the facts us regards this
matter?" The Democratic Executive
Committee, who rented tlio bail, hail
tickeis issued to tbe property certified
delegates and alternates, und, that the
convention might be held lu decency
nod order, issued these tickets to none
others except members of tbo press.
Hut a mob, beaded by some of those
who were delegates snd those that wero
not, violently and forcibly broko into
the hall, without regard to the rules
made by tho Democratic Committee.
Mr. Nimmo was recognized by Mr.
George W, Jonen, their lea.ior in tbu
convention, as huvinn tho ri^ht to call
tho convention to order,bo ( Mr. J
submitting motions uud nomioaliog
Mr. Bidgood for lonipornrv chairman,
in opposition to Mr. Hawks.
Mr. Nimmo declared Mr. Hawks elrot

a division made by any one. 1 b
vention was thou organized perma?

make no other nominations ami ad?

How Vaccination Was Discovered.
When Dr. Jenncr was at Sudbury, ho
won surprised ono day at hearing a coon
try woman say that sho would not tako
tbo smallpox because sho had bud tbe
cowpoz, and upon Inquiry he learned
that it. was a popular notion in that dis?
trict that milkers who had been infected
with a peculiar eruption which ??? mi -
times ooonrrcd on the udder of the cow
wero complotetly secure agaiusl the
smallpox. It occurred to Jennor in 1780
that it might be possible to propagate
tbo cowpoxi und with it the security
from smallpox, first, from the, cow to
the bur?au body, and then from oue per?
son to another. The experiments and
confidence in them wero uncertain for a
year, but after that tirao success was
assured. I>r. .Tenner worked nil his re?
maining lifo to benefit mankind and
spread I bo knowledge of his most won
derful discovery, and benefited tbo hu
mau vane in evorv civilized country.
