THE CAMPAIGN,
E. It. LITTLE, EDITOR,
DLOOM8DUUO, FRIDAY, OCT. 12, 1800,
Valedictory.
This Is tho last mtirrbcr of the Cam
X'jucik, nnd tho alitor retires front lt
management with tho consciousness
that ho has performed his duty to his
party during tho canvnssj-lnsuppcrrtiiig
all of Its regular candidates,-nm!" oppos
ing tho disorganization and treachery
which were attempted in this county by
r few men who had" been' truutcd Rnd
favored by It. "When our sheet was
thrown out to tho public thero was no
newspaper In tho eounty which sup
ported tho wholo ticket, or whoso' col
umns could bo used for such purpose
Our two newspapers had sold out to the
enemy, and tho men connected with tho
Democrat and Star In particular, were
In constant Intcrcoursoaud consultation
with tho editor of tho Republican or
gan about political matters, nnd plot
ting tho disruption and defeat of our
party. Wo camo into tho' editorial
arena upon tho necessities of tho ocrav
nloii, and as a matter of duty to our
cause, and tho task which wo took in
hand has been performed. But tho
emergency has passed away Our can
dldatcs havo all been nobly sustained
by tho Democracy of this county and
the traitors against whom wo wrote
havo been robuked and put down In
tholr nefarious schemes. This Is all we
desired or expected in undertakfng tho
cnternrlso of a!camnaii:n fanner; and
wo now ask no other reward for our la
bor than tho approbation of tho good
and truo men of our party who havo
acted with tts In the contest.
Tho Revolt of tho' Whiskey Brigado
In former numbers of tho CAMivAftT
nnd in tho present ono, we havo expos
ed the baseness nnd treachery to our
party organlzation.ofa very small squad
of individuals Ifa Illoomsburg ; nnd for
convenience wo havo named them as a
Brigade. They have made several
charges upon our party, but more in the
character of guerillas than regular
troops; nnd though they have accom
plished but little, their attacks have
been spirited nnd in earnest. Jacoby's
resolution about the nomination for As
sembly was the first shot fired from an
ambush into tho County Convention,
nnd was designed to raise a disturbance
in tho nominations, nnd lead to Jacoby's
return to tho Assembly for tho third
time. Tho Representative Conferees
wero picked with this object, but tho
project fulled as did the next ono to
nominate Tato for the Senate, although
that had more respectable backing and
tho decision of tho Convention In its
favor. Then was concocted in secret
upon consultation with John, Ucckley,
and Co., tho Infamous bolt on tho As
sembly nomination, and a number of
honorable men wore Inveigled into it by
private boring and misrepresentation.
Tho idea was to carry off enough Dem
ocratic votes, which, limited with tho
radical Republican votes of tho District,
would break down tho Democratic nom
ination for Assembly, and elect Tate,
who was to bo an instrument of the
Bolters for tho future. John agreed
that tho Republican Conferees of Coluni-
biaand Montour countiesshould not meet
to mako a Republican nomination for
Assembly, and that Tate should have
tho support of tho Republicans of tho
District. Thus every thing looked fair
to the plotters who thought as they con
trolled tho papers on both sides of the pol
itics In this county, they could carry out
tho wholo scheme without fall. Mercur
camo hero about thosamo time, nnd wiw
no doubt consulted In thobusluess,vhieh
tho Radical leaders concerned in the in
trigue Intended should operate to his
advantage in the election. Whether the
nionoy necessary to clinch tho bargain
with tho Bolters, and greaso tho Demo
cratic newspapers which wero to assist
in carrying It out, was furnished by
Mercur, or tho Republican State Coin
mltteo, outsiders of course aro unablo to
tell.
But nfter nil tho arrangements wero
made, tho bolting and radical conspira
tors woko up ono morning and found
nn unexpected obstaclo In their path.
Tho Camtaign had como Into existence
to unmask their schemes, and expose
them in their naked deformity to tho
people of tho county. It was necessary
to proceed with caution and to cover up
their tracks as much as possible. So tho
Democrat and Star otllco and the radical
liqnibllcan otllco went to work In secret
with closed doors, to got up tickets for
purposesoftradlngnndoheatlng through
out tho county; nnd the Knorr circular
was concocted by Dr. John, nnd distrib
uted to safe agents In every District to
direct tho use of tho bogus tickets, on
both sides, as thoy had been prepared at
tho two headquarters of tho conspiracy.
Republicans wero to voto for Tato, and
Tato Democrats wero to voto for Mercur,
and inasmuch as by that timo It had be
come plain to every man of information
and sound sense here that Tato could
not bo elected, tho wholo practical effect
would bo to Mercur's advantage, und
that ,of tho Radical party. So far as
bolting Democrats could bo got to
trade votes, it would bo an advnntago
to thoDoctor and his candidate; be
cause Republican votes given for Tuto
In exchange would do neither good nor
harm. And Jacoby, Wirt, and Co., of
tho Whiskey Brigade, must havo gono
into tho dirty business, not becauso they
wanted to help Tate, to whom they had
formerly been enemies, but because thoy
had received tholr price.
Tho Campaign got hold of an early
-copy of that circular and published it,
Which blew Tato ottt of water, and loft
tho brigade without an excuso for any
open opposition to tho Democratic party.
Tho only thing left for them to do in
behalf of Mercur nnd Dr. John, was a
little private cheating at tho election
on their own account, which they did.
Wirt, and perhaps ono or two others,
voted tho Republican ticket outright,
while tho bulk of tho llrlgado nnd a
few others whom they could Influence
thought It moio safe to voto scratched
tickets, which amount In principle to
tho same thing; except being somewhat
meaner In Its character. Eight Demo
cratic county tickets had Judge El well's
name scratched off, which, although n
weak showing for the brigade, was all
that thoy thought could bo safely done.
They wanted to keep their treachery
secret, and whllo carrying out their
contract with Dr. Johntoescapo rcspon
slblllty as far as possible.
Fortunately for tho causo of Justice
most of them nro known, nnd they will
not bo trusted hereafter by tho .Democ
racy of this county, which hna hereto
fore bestowed favors on several of them,
only to bo repaid by treachery nnd in
gratitude.
Hut the revolt of tho brigade, which
looked so big and Important at ono time,
and was backed by two newspaper?,
dwindled down into very small propor-
tlons at lust. It died of Doctor John
nnd Its own rascality, and is only Impor
tant as a lesson to all corrupt men who
may hereafter desire to betray our party
from motives of spito or selfishness, and
to disregard honor and duty In carrying
out their designs.
Tho Elections in Columbia Connty
Elections in Columbia County ns
compared with-tho elections in many
other places are puro and Honest, in
tho late election so far as the Democracy
aro concerned, not ono dollar was sent
into tho county from abroad to Intlu
ence results. Norjwas money raised
hero for elcctlonecrinir purposes. Our
men performed what labor thoy could,
boro their own expenses, and usod no
means of corruption in any wny what
ever to accomplish their purposes. Tho
great and splendid vote secured was
honestly obtained nnd those who gave
It do so from conviction nnd without
unduo Influence of any kind. We think
tire free use of money at elections is n
great nud g-rowing evil In this country
and wo rejoice that our elections In this
county aro comparatively uncontamln-
atcd and without reproach from this
cause.
It is truo we shall dlo with the con
vlction that there was somo Mercur
money about nnd used in getting up tho
Bolt on Assembly, in subsidizing tho
Press, and In corrupting a few purchase
able voters. This is a reasonable expla
nation or sundry tilings wmcn nnvo
happened. But the results produced by
this means wero quite Insignificant nnd
tho amount expended could not havo
been very largo as it pas'd, no doubt,
throuch tho hands of Dr. John. In
such cases it is his habit to tako tho Li
ons share to himself I Ho absorbs po
litical contributions an naturally ns a
sponge takes water. It is perhaps for
tunate that tho Radical corruption fund
passed Into tho hands of n sponge;
otherwise thero might have been more
than half a dozen traitor votes and eight
scratched tickets at the Bloom election?
The vote in Bloom afflicts the Radi
cals, and well it may. With tho largo
vote polled, amounting to nearly live
hundred and fifty, they had reason to
hope for a majority of over one hundred
for Geary, and they confidently claimed
at least fifty for Mercur. But Geary fell
down to seventy-one, and Mercur was
actually whipped, except for the cor
rupt and sneaking treachery of the
Bolters. And tltese few miserable votes
and scratched tickets which secured for
Mercur barely live majority, were ex
pressive and were also disgraceful to all
concerned. In ISO!! and 1801, tho Ite-
puhllcnn majorities in Bloom were
eighty-six and eighty-seven, upon n voto
much lighter than that of the present
year. But things havo changed some
what, and tho President of tho First
National Bank of Bloomsbiirg Is not
quite ns powerful as formerly at our
local elections.
The peopleof tills countycan look back
with satisfaction upon their conduct tow
ard thecandtdatcs for Senator and Repre
sontatlvo who rcsldo beyond tho limits
of tho county. Mr. Jackson's majority
for Senator is greater oven than that for
Governor, and Mr. Chnlfaut's voto for
Representative Is fully up to our party
strength. Thus havo these nominations
from other counties from the Senatorial
and Representative Districts been lion
orably sustained. This was right and
will havo a good effect in tho future,
Tho putting down of disorganization In
this county will bo remembered to our
credit by tho people of neighboring
counties and tho example will not bo
lost upon them when disorganization or
treachery to our cause shall bo attempt
ed amongst them.
There was a little shabby voting In
Cutawlssa and Berwick. But no mat
ter. Thero aro true men in those dis
tricts, and they will do better on the
noxt occasion of trial. Tho general re
suit In the county Is so good that thero
Is hardly nny reason for complaint over
particular cases of exception. And bo
sines, in tho two or catawlssa, wo
received a valuable uml rlbtition of votes
upon tho question of Congress from in
dependent Republicans.
CoNYNOHAM and Centralta did ex
ceedingly well in tho first full vole that
they havo given nt any election. Tho
Borough lines wero run, it Is said, to ex
cludo Democratic voters from wlthli
tho corporate limit;. But this pleco of
sharp management has failed In its oh
Jcct. Both Borough and Township nro
Democratic, nnd firmly fixed against
tho Radicals for tho future. And 60
" moto it be."
Dootor John's Solf-saorifloing Dispo
sition.
It is sometimes amusing nnd perhaps
profitable to philosophise, oven upon
tho useless qualities of a nuisance. Doc
Ton John possesses industry, nndsofar
as wo know, tcmpcruto habits, which
ought to elevate tho meanest capacity,
at least to tho level of mediocrity. Yet
wo find him, although occupying a con
spicuous and responsible posltlouns edi
tor of n nowspnper, sinking steadily
and surely into insignificance, if not ob
scurity. To Illustrate the cause of this
strange phenomenon, wo refer ngalu to
his having printed and distributed a
bogus Democratic ticket and secret clr
cular, with Mercur's name substituted
In tho ticket for Judge Elwell's, nnd
headed "Tho Regular Democratic Tick
et," (as published in our last Campaign)
ns an instance of his attempts nt trick
ery and deception. This, among other
tilings shows his disposition to sacrifice
character for truth and honesty. We
don't say sacrifice character, bccauo
that was gone long ngo ; but a disposi
tion to sacrifice It If lie could. It would
havo been n sacrifice In another respect ;
for what reward could ho havo expect
ed from Mercur, who Is without influ
ence at Washington ? Nor could ho
have been working for principle, for ho
offered to sell his Jacobin principles, his
party, and Mercur along with them for
tho Asscssorshlp. Yet while doing tho
drudgery, ho stoops to such trickery
and deception In Mercur's interest, as
even Mercur would bo nshamcd to do
for himself. Ills only reward for all
this Is the gratification of spite against
what, he calls tho "Disorganizes."
Herein Doctor John shows n self-sacrificing
spirit of u peculiar kind; not n
disposition to sacrifice time, money
case, and every worldly good, except n
good name, In the accomplishment of
good objects; but tho reverse I He
shows a disposition tosncrlfico character
for truth and honesty and nothing else,
and that too In n bad cause viz : grntl
Mention of revenge. Of course he finds
that anger is a passion which Is ever uu
grateful to Its votaries. Heroin consists
thosecretof Doctor John's degeneracy
He possesses a self-sacrificing spirit, but
of tho wrong kind: nnd in order that
he may advance in the scnlo of civiliza
tion, It is necessary that ho should re
trace his steps, and try to do good In
hteiyi 01 evil, 'mat no snouiu use n
portion of that zeal and willingness in
sacrificing his time, money, etc., In n
good cause, that he now does in trying
to sacrifice character for truth and hon
esty, (having none) in a bad cause. The
man whose character Is opposite to that
of Doctor John's, having a self-sacrific
ing spirit in the accomplishment otyood,
is on tho sure nnd only road to happi
ness. Or in Bulwer's language, "Ho
who takes tho broadest road tp tho hap
pi ness of others, takes the shortest road
to his own." But it would bo inconsist
ent for such a person to sacriflco his
good name, and his character for truth
and honesty. Duty may require him
to sacriflco every other worldly good ;
but tliete, never.
Wk have reason to bo proud of tho
service rendered for the causo of tho Un
ion and honest Government by tho sev
eral gentlemen of this county who are
accustomed to speak for tho Democracy.
in addition to rendering full service nt
home, they have spoken in eight or ten
neighboring counties during tho Into
canvass. In addition to speeches bv
Senator Buckalow at Lock Haven, Dan
ville, Shiehshlnney, l'ottsvllle, and
Lebanon service has been performed by
our Columbia County boys in Sullivan,
Bradford, Tioga, Lycoming, Northum
berland, and Union. General Ent, Colo
nel ! reo.c, and Captain Brockway de-
servo Honorable mention not merelv
becauso they have performed this ser
vico but because they have performed
u wunout compensation nnd with n
saerillco of their business interests at
home, they have been zealous nud un
selfish in their work and have won not
only tho attachment of party friends
but tho good opinion of the people gen
orally In nil the communities wero thoy
have spoken.
We desire here and now in this, the
closing number of tho Campaign, to say
that, from personal observation anil
icnowieuge, we are satisucu tiiat ex
Sherilf Billmeyer, whoso nnmo was
connected with tho "Tato Bolt," upon
tho withdrawal of tho Colonel, camo in
nnd worked honestly, faithfully, and
laboriously for "tho ticket, tho wholo
ticket and nothing but the ticket."
In tho township of Centre, also, tho
largely increased voto for tho ticket
shows that Androw Freas, whoso name
likewise had been used In tho above
connection, gave to tho entire ticket his
support. Wo mako theso announce
ments with undisguised satisfaction, lie
eau-o it proves that these gentlemen are
sound at heart, and truo and devoted to
our cause.
No Democrat of tlds county can look
at our local election returns without
feelings of satisfaction and pride. The
vote was a fair one, honorably obtained,
nnd tho majorities are magnificent!
Never before wero such majorities given
In this county In any contest where po
litical lines wero drawn and tho uctual
strength of political opinions fairly
tested. All honor to tho freemen of the
county who have spoken so strongly In
favor or Union, and against tho degra
dation of sufrrago in this county !
In this district Mercur, negro suf-
fragelte, is probably ro-elected to Con
gross by ono thousand majority, upon
nit enormous Increaso of tho voto in
Bradford. Majorities havo been given
against him In Columbia, Montour, .Sul
livan, and Wyoming, nmountlng to
nbout twenty-seven hundred; but tho
Bradford Argus reports the majority in
his favor In Bradford County nt from
thirty-four hundred to thirty-s-oven hun
dred, with an allegation of unfair votlug.

In Conynghnm Township In this
county one man's voto was rejected as
a non-reporting drafted' man. Upon

also commenced against the parties, by

Tho meeting was immense. In tho af

tho meeting was addressed by Colonel

A friend calls our attention to the
flno vote given In Centre Township, nt
tho late election, nnd claims that that
district bears off the palm. We are half
inclined to agreo with him in opinion
about that vote. It is what Doctor
John would call a settler, If given on
the other side.
Our friends in Orange did well, adml

At.MioiiTY God, our Heavenly
Father, has been pleased to vouchsafe to
us as n jrcoplo another year of that na
tional life which Is an liidlspcnslblo con
dition of peace, security, nnd progress.
That year, moreover, has been crowned
with mnnv nccullnr blessings. Tho
civil war that has so recently been
nmotig us, has not been nnywhero re
opened. Foreign Intervention has ceased
tocxclte alarm or apprehension. Intru
sive pestilence has been benignly miti
gated. Domestic tranquility has Im
proved; sentiments of conciliation have
largely prevailed, nnd nnectlons of loy
alty and patriotism have been widely re
newed. Our fields have yielded quite
abundantly; our mining Industry has
been richly rewarded, and we have been
allowed to extend our railroad system
fur into the Interior recesses of the
country; while our commerco has re
sumed its customary activity In foreign
, These great national blesslngs'de-
mnnd a national acknowledgement.
Now, therefore, I, Andkuw Johnson,
President of tho United States, do here
by recommend that Thursday, the
twenty-ninth day of November next,
bo set npart and be observed evry where
In tho several States nnd Territories of
the United States by tho people thereof
ns u dny of thanksgiving and praise to
Almighty God, with duo remembrance
that In His temple doth every man
speak of His honor. I recommend also
that on the same solemn occasion wo do
humbly nnd devoutly implore him to
grant to our national councils and
to our whole people thnt divine wis
dom which nlone can lead any nation In
tho ways of all good. In offering these
national thanksgivings, praises, und
supplications, we liavethedlvinu assur
ance that the Lord remainetli a king
forever; those that arc meek shall He
guide in judgment, and such as arc gen
tle shall He learn His way. Tho Lord
shall give strength to His people, nud
tho Lord shall glvo to Ills people the
blessing of peace.
In witness whereof I havo hereunto
set my hand nnd caused tho seal of tho
United States to bo affixed.

thero Is n larger vote polled than thero

Jorlty a gain ; Kerr, Democrat, in tho
second district, has increased from 1,703
to 1,077. Hunter, Republican, gets less
than r00, when his Radical predecessor

7,ll.'i to about GOO. In thoslxth district,
Coburn has only 2,200 against 7,13S two
