To tho Democracy of Columbia
Tins is tliu first unmoor of a cam
paign paper, to bo issued onco a week
until after tho election. Having onco
had some cporlonco in conducting a
Democratic newspaper, I liavo conclu
ded that 1 may bo usomlly employed
in editing this one. In some respects it
is with pleasuro that I engage in the
enterprise j for I feel that I am writing
to familiar Mends. The most of you I
have frequently mot at speaking phi'
cos in this county, and can realize how
you will again, as of old, make the
welkin ring witli your hearty cheers for
the "glorious Democratic party," "the
ticket, tho whole ticket, and nothing
but tho ticket." Circumstances seem
to render this enterprise necessary. A
sharp and giddy crisis has unexpectedly
presented itself. On the evo of an im
portnnt election, when our nominations
were all made, our ticket completely
formed, and tho Democratic army mar
dialling for the conflict, wo woke up in
the morning and found that wo were
without an organ at the county seat
Tho conductors of tho Democratic
newspaper at Woomsburg had con
spired with other to sell us out. They
tako down tho name of Captain Thom
as Chalfant, our regular nomineo for
Representative, and substitute that of
Ij. L. Tato, a volunteer, in its stead, for
tho support of tho Democratic party.
And thoy not only refuse to support
the whole ticket themselves, but have
refused to be hired to print tills cam
paign paper for such a purpose ; and
lienco wo are compelled to get the me
chanical work for it done by contract at
another office. Under tho eireunistau
ces wo throw this sheet before the pub
lic with a clear mind, and shall strike
boldly for tho right. Wo supply tho
placo of thoso who have proved false to
duty, and call upon the Democracy to
stand with u.i in the battle.
E. II. Littm;.
Tur.KE has been no Central Directory
to manage and manipulate nomination
in this county heretofore, or at least has
not been for a. long time. The men of
the townships have exercised their freo
judgment. Their opinions and friend
ships have constituted the rule of their
action, and what a majority of them
determined upon was carried out by
county conventions. Thus dissontiou
and division were prevented. Volun
teer candidates appeared upon tho scene
very seldom; party organization wits
preserved, and strength and victory
wcro secured. Now the harmony, pow
er, and successor our pnrty depend upon
tho continuance of this order of things,
Tho people of tho county must make
nominations in a fair and regular man
ner, without tho Interference of politi
dans at the county peat, who can only
Interfere to pervert tho system of nom
ination into an instrument of great mis
chief and ovil.
Tho ambition and selfishness of some
central clique in a county is tho com
moil cause of party division, and is to
bo guarded against constantly by all
good mon who are concerned in party
nominations. Tho existing disturbance
in this comity upon the Representative
question arises from a disregard of these
views. A few men at the county seat,
most of thorn lnoxporienced in political
affairs, huvoundortakontorun tho pnrty
machlno and to direct tho course of
nominations in the county, and a very
natural result lias followed. Dissatisfied
with tho decision made by regular con
ventions and Conferee, they Jiavo set
up n candldatoof their own, and in sui
porting him proposo to Indulge all tho
bad feelings and disappointments which
ranklo in heir breasts. And in carry
ing out this schcino of disorganization,
xelllshness, and passion, seo to what nb
mirdlties and folllos thoy descend ! Ono
of tho rules of tho party in this. county,
regularly adopted and now in force, is,
" That all nominations of candidates
bhall bo in county convention." And
yet thoy proposo to pro.wnt a candidate
lor Representative without tho action
of any conventional all, mid in flat con
tempt of pnrty law.
Again, Conferees nro appointed, as
their very unnio shows, for conmiltatlor,,
and they havo no power to act except
when met together where views may bo
interchanged and tho subject of consul
tation duly considered. Yet our Cen
tral Directory seem to think that tho
Conferees of ono county of the district
can recommend a candidate, without1
any meeting or consultation whatever, I
by merely signing papers separately at
their homos, brought thein by indus
trious agent' of a wTnihbbo candidate.
Finally, the powers of a eoiivullon
or of Conferees duly appointed may bo
usurped, according to their opinion, by
a standing committee appointed for
very different purpose, and having
nothing to do with any question of
nomination. Hut hero again there Is to
bo no meeting of tho Committee, al
though they can only act regularly and
intelligently when met together.
Iii our present easo wo havo seen tho
names of citizens, gathered up by pri
vate solicitation, paraded In tho press
as tho volco of the people. Of course
in such an unauthorized proceeding wo
niut expect that more or less of decep
tion will bo prneli.-cd, and that men
who sign will begWHsly deceived j a fact
which Is clearly shown by tho state
ments which we publish In our present
nu in her.
Why was not a Convention tilled or
tho old one re-ussoniblod ? Why was
there no Conferee meeting when new
action was to bo taken? Why was not
tho Standing Coinniltteebroughttogeth
er when their voice was to bo Invoked In
favor of a volunteer candidate'. And
why wero not the people assembled in
somo public meeting where dK-usslon
could tako place, and both sides be heard
on the question of bolting tho regular
nomination V Not ouu of these thing.-,
wero done, because in none of these ways
could the intended ndsehlol get an en
dorsenient to give it respectability.
Wo eo then, In all this, how bad a
system central management is. To
carry out Its dodgus It mast resort to
intrigue, deception, and falsehood, and
depart from all opun and fair modes of
proceeding. "Wo prefer county manage
ment to central dictation, and think
that a town which has already three
candidates upon the ticket ought not to
ask a fourth ono in dellanco of all party
law-sand usages. Tho whole county acts
in n convention, and 11 is wise that such
body alone, or Conferees selected by it
(acting with other Conferees of the
district), should make all tho nomina
tions of tho party.
disorganl.itlon and treachery, In tho
perfect assuranco that whenever a e.indl
dale of Hits county shall l assailed and
struck at hi their county, they will
stand by in and by our common cause
with equal fidelity and courage.
I.v another arlii'lo we have stated the
history of Senatorial nominations in
our Senatorial District, ever since the
erection of Montour County, from
which it plainly appears that thcro is
not much reason for grumbling over
Mr Jackson's nomination on the ground
of ids location in the district.

complaining on this subject in tho iiolt

Nothing of the kind happened nine

Tho bolting Colonel passes over the
fact that in 1857 tho Montour Conferees
voted with Columbia County in Con-
lerence, and thus secured tho nomina
tion of .Mr. Duckalow, of this county,
for a third term. "We know no reason
for Ids omitting this fact, except that
stating it would tell strongly against
him. lie says again:
Three, years ago tho undersigned
tho bolting Colonel himself had the
imnnwioiMrecommondatioii of Colum
bia County fur State Senator, and Mon
tour voted against him in Conference.
Observe, this was only a recommenda
ttonima not a nomination by our con voli
tion. In fact, tho Colonel could not get a
nomination or instructions to Conferees,
and therefore took ablniplo compliment
in tho form of a recommendation. No
body expected him to bo nominated by
the Conference, and few desired it.
Tho Colonel says, further, that ho
"was unanimously nominated by tho
Democracy of Columbia County for
Htuto Senator" this year. Ho was nomi
nated in our Convention by a vote of
twenty-six to tweuty-four, and ono half
or more of tho delegates voting for him
had boon selected by tho people in favor
of another candidate.

In Illustration ol which, ho told an an

they wero husband and wife; until
filially the MciViviMvhtlolady told him
that she had done bettor than her more
beautiful sister, who had married a Cop-
por-Joliiisou-Democrat. (Holstorous ap
plause by the negro stiflragants.) The
principal point of U. Moreur's speech
was, negro sutlVage: and ho boasted
that hu had voted for negro suffrage In
the District of Columbia. The reason
he gave was, that there were negroes In
tho District of Columbia who wero bet

mouths soliciting tho nomination for
State Senator, came into thoConventiou

was nominated In consequence of antag
onism between other candidates and not
on account of ids own strength.
To hear a man complaining over tho

utterly absurd ; and the absurdity is

Till! history of the Supremo Court of
the United Slides may be divided Into
four periods. Tho first, which wo may
call the original or formative period, ex
tends from 1"K!) to tho accession of
Chlef-.lustlco Marshall, and Includes the
terms of tho two Ch!of-.l unices Jay and
Ellsworth. The original members wero
Jay, of New York ; ltutledge, of South
Carolina; Cashing, of Massachusetts ;
WINon, of Pennsylvania; lllalr, or

Cashing was the only one who remained
on the llenchat the close or John Ad

In 17!)l, Patterson In 17:i, Ellsworth in
1700, S. Chase Iu 17!)(1, It. Washington
In 17113, and Moore in I7IH). All hut
the last two wore appointed by Wash

simultaneously with the political revo
lution which lirought Mr. Jell'er.son to
the Presidency, and embraces nearly
tho whole term of Chief-Justice Mar

the first Adams, just as the latter was
going out of olllce, and his life extend

term ; but tho unity of character oftho
court may bo regarded as ending In
ISi!!). Tho Judges whom Marshall
found as his associates wero Cashing,
Paterson of New Jersey, Chase or Mary

Moore of North Carolina. Their places
were supplied by W. Johnson in ISO I,
Livingston In lsu5, Duval and Story Iu
ISI 1, Thompson in l:il. A seventh
Judge, Todd of Kentucky, was added
by act of Congress in 1-SII7, who wassuc

Tho third period begins with Jack
son's administration, during which the
prrt-oiiiie of the court was almost en
tirely changed. Of his appointment
were M'Lean, of Ohio, In lH-'.; Raid
win, of I'ennsylvania, in ISliO ; Wayne
oi Georgia, m 1S:)0; Harbour, of Vlr

a large majority of tho court. Uytho

Southern judges, the South retained
bare majority, in tho preponderance of
the Chief-Justice, Two Judges were ad
ded by act of Congress lu ls:J7 Catron
of Tennessee and M'Kinley of Alabam:
making the whole court consist of
nine judges. Mr. Wayno is the onlv

plied by Daniel In lsll, Nelson and
Woodbury iu IKIO, (Jrier in 1NI0, Curt!
m 1S01, Cnnipbell in is.-,:), and Clifford
in is-OS, but those made no change iu
the constitution and character of tho
court, down to the inauguration of Presi
dent Lincoln In lsill. This closes the
third period, although Chief-Justice
'laney presided until !siil.
The fourth period begins with tho ad
ministration of President Lincoln, who
appointed Swnyno or Ohio, Miller of
Iowa, nnd Davis of Illinois, in isi
Field of California in ls(i:i; and Chase
