WM. II. JACODT, Vdllor.
.WEDNESDAY.. DEC. 30, 1808.
This week closes my editorial career, in
' Columbia County, for at leant a number of
', year. Oii tho 20th of December, 1808, J
sold tny entire interest in tho Bloomsuurh
Democrat to Gapt C. B. Bbockway, edi
tor of tho Columbian, of this town. Tho
' two papers will bo consolidated, lint issue
appearing under tho new arrangement on
Friday next, edited and controlled by tl e
present manager and proprietor of tho Col
umbian. It will appear under tho title of
" The Columbian and Bloomsburg Demo
crat" greatly improved in its mechanical
arrangements and other respects. It is the
intention of tho proprietor to sparo no pains,
with the facilities already in his possession,
and yet to bo acquired, to make this i pa per
tho neatest, best, and cheapest weekly in
the State. In size,' it is decidedly tho larg
est papor in the County, and in tho State
thoroare few, if any, thut surpass its di
mensions. It is ably and carefully edited,
' and justly merits a liberal and hearty tup
port at the hands of the Democracy. Mr.
Brockway is yet a young man, though a
gentleman of large experience for ono who
-has lived so small a nuinbor of years, and
with his legal knowledge, coupled with his
'political und newspaper experience, it is to
be hoped that ho will bo ablo to publish a
journal which will meet tho expectations of
all, and take rank among the highest papers
in the State.
All pre-paid subscriptions will be filled by
Mr. Bbockway ; credit lraving been cur
ried from our loo; 9 to his in all cases where
tho tifUdlms not expired for which tho pa
4cr tras paid. If any mistakes havo oc
curred, in making this transfer of credits,
thoy can be easily rectified by calling and
examining our books.
"By some it may bo enquired why this
sale was mado, and tho consolidation of the
two papers effected ; to which question there
-are several answers, many of which arc no
well understood by tho Democracy of the
county that a full explanation is unneces
sary: In the first place, there is no neces
sity for tro Democratic journals in this
town ; in tho second placo, tho Democracy
of the county do not furnish pntrdnngo suf
ficient to afford anything over and abovo a
decent livelihood for three publishers ; and,
in rhe .third place, I desire to disconnect
myself from the newspaper business at
present, that I might enjoy a little rest,
after eleven years of editorial life, and
settle and collect my accounts. If these
reasons are not sufficient, I will bo pleased
to explain moro fully to. air who may call
upon me. '
I had charge and control of the Stab C
the North in 1867, prior to the death of
ItntJBEN Weaver, Esq., and in January!
1858, purchased the establishment at au
Administrator's sale. This was dono under
discouraging circumstances, the subscrip
tion list being less than three hundred, the
advertising and jobbing patronage small,
and myself a comparative stranger to the
people of tho county. In less tbun a year,
with the assistance of my newly acquired
friends, tho subseriptkm more than doubled,
and tho advortismg potronago was'mado
quito Encouraging. Tho Star was pub
lished by mo for over four years without the
least interruption, until October 16th, T8G2,
when Abraham Lincoln "took us for a
soldior." ' Not having plenty of "stamps,"
and onr friends mostly being in tho same
fix, I concluded, as this was a short draft,
that I would close tho office. I did to ;
and having no friends in Canada, entered
the army served my time, got an honora
ble discharge, and wasn't Abolitioniscd in
In August, 1803, I roturnod froth the
army, revived tho Stab and continued its
publication until February, 1800, when tho
purchase of tho Columbia Democrat was
effected by fi. R Ikkleb, Esq., with whom
we formed a co-partnership, and consolidat
ed tho two papers under the title of Col
umbia Democrat and Star of the
North. This co-partnership lasted tome
seven months or more, whon the interest of
Mr- Ikeler was disposed of to Josiaii P.
Suuman, whose connection with the paper
continued until January, 18G7. AVter his
retirement the entire control and editorial
labors of tho paper fell upon myself. This
change in the establishment naturally dis
jointed matters more or less; and at tho
out-start of tho second volume, after tho
onsolidoiion, while I had oxelusive control,
tho title was changed to that of Blocsis
buro Star and Democrat. Under that
name-1 have published the paper nearly
two years;- and during this timo I havo seen
soiuo sunshino as well as cloudy weather.
Tho lifo of a nowspopcr editor is not tho
Bios? pleasant under tho best of circum
stances. With subscription and advertis
ing bills scattered all "ovor creation," com
positors, from the "jour" down, crying' for
copy, the Landlord and Express Agent at
iho door knocking for admission to collect
lulls, tbcro is enough to distract aud drive
an editor to madness unless ho possess fen

is occasionally made glad by tho presenta
tion of basket or strawberries, apples,
grapos, and at proper seasons fat gobbler;
besides, "free tickots" of admission to all
tho puppet shows that travel tho country.
It will be seen, howovor, that all these pos
sess vory littloof -the substantial of life.
In parting with 'tho Democrat I do not
propose to leave tho county. 'Too marry of
my liest duys have been spout here-aniong

a now field of lubor.
. I shell overbold all1 those 'with whom I

reciprocate whatever of countenance and
favor I have received.

Tho thing is virtually dead. Republican.
Can thi "really" bo so? that tho old
Democrat is dead I Who over heard of
tho tXing being butted t What does the
mtuto editor mean ? By soiuo . people it
might bo thought that tho Demosthenes of
tho Republican was trying to poko fun at
tho retiring editor of this 'Journal, but wo
hope tlint is not the case. It would coiio
with rather, bad graco'from that quarter.
Tho former editor of tho Republican mado
un amicublo and satisfactory sale of bis
office, jut as wo havo dono, and does it
naturally follow that he, too, is "busted"?
Sensible people in this end of town think
We have yet to learn that the new editor
of tho 1!cp'ubican charged his prede
cessor with " roguery" when ho disposed' of
his establishment, O no 1 there was no
"roguery" in that transaction it was legit
imate, honest and fair, and the wholo Re
publican party wero expected so to view it.
Whether they have dono so the subscription
list of that paper might be taken as the best
evidence. Since the role of 'Iho Democrat
and its consolidation with tho other Demo
cratic paper of (his town, we have nut met
a single individual save tho fugleman of tho
Republican, who expressed any dissatisfac
tion with tho arrangement or claimed that
we owned him and had told him out.
However much tho "old Democrats" of
tho county tnBy havo admired our paper fur
its consistent, independent and straightfor
ward course, they nover admitted that they
belonged to us, nor that we had any cluims
upon them further than to expect from them
an honest and faithful support to the paper
as patron.. The Democrats of this county
are not yet ready to become merchandise nor
to be owned and control led by one man or
and any set of men. For tho Republican
party wo are unable to speak ; but wo might
infer from what their editor prints in his pa
per, that the party to which ho belongs uro
sold and dealt with as " merchandise." If
it is so, it is a bad st.ito of affairs. Tlioso
who make up that .-party arc, then, suhje-t
to becomo the property and dupes of a very
groat set of scoundrels. Tho longest purso
then will always own thorn. Save us from

warns them against a repetition of such
scenes, if thoy wish their "reunions" to bo

handed it to his son, telling him to bo care

gun went off accidentally, the ball passing
through tho weatherboarding and through
