Raw Pkachks. Mr. J. W. Knight of this township, left some fine specimens of peacfaea at our office yesterday, for which he will ac cept our grateful acknowledgments. gfca Some of the Douglas men in Illinois wsserted tha they were going to publish the : names of 100 voters in a certain county i who voted for Fremont in '50, that were going to vote for Douglas. The story pass ed current, until it was Hsccrtained that i Fremont did not get but 39 votes in the county. Why They Groaned. The reasons why the Douglas Guards complimented i the Journal office with three groans, on I Wednesday night, were a3 follows : The i first groan was the result of disappointment , in their efforts to "rope in ' the Bell men ; to the support of Locofocoism. The second i one was for the agony they feel from the ! lashings that their party has received from the Journal. The third was on account of i their despair when they heard of theforma ! tion of a Breckinridge aud Lane electoral ticket. giegf We are told by a good Democrat in Posey that a Douglas man had made a bet with him that Lincoln would carry that countv. This is indicative of the desnair . , , that la gradually settling over the Douglas Tbe'see nothlD but defeat-over- w helimmr defeat on every hand. From information derived from various parts of the District, we predict that Gov. Lane will gain 3,000 votes on the vote given for Mor ton in 185C. A little resolute work will also gain several members of the Legisla j ture. " Up men and at them !" the day is ours. Shkkcii or John Hickman. This sterling Democratic-Republican made a speech at Concert Hall, Philadelphia, on the 24!h. We to-day commence the publication of this most excellent effort, and hope it may j be read carefully by every Republican, Bell ! man and Democrat who sees it. It takes a cool and philosophical view of the position of parties and tbe condtion of political at- j fairs at the present crisis. Mr. Hickman, i until the delivery of this speech, had been a Democrat eminent in his party. Under the leadership of Douglas he opposed, with i ' ' v u UlUll in I yiu UI UU It'll , iillU CW ill ated solely by a reckless, selfish ambitioni he turned his back on him. He now is an earnest advocate of the election of that man of the people Abraham Lincoln. hbbibW i. v r i i i c i W e have been furnished by a friend in Posey county with a copy of the Mt. .

The copy of this Extra, row before us, contains garbled extracts from the platforms of the various parties entirely omiting the j resolution passed by the Douglas Ciiuven- profound platitudes, explanatory of the various platforms. The editorial is as sopori fic as adecoction ot poppies and if the Doug Ins men of Posey have imbibed of it to a very great extent, the Republicans will have but little difficulty in beating them at the polls, for they can not indulge much j without becoming a party of "Fast Aaleeps. Then and Sow, We have been whiling avray the tedious hours, this week, intervening " between chills." iu a little attack we have had of this provoking malady, by glancing over some old newspaper files.

Pending this question, Gov. Whitcomb had been elected lo the C S. Senate, and the Lieutenant Governor, Paris C. Dun ning, had succeeded to the executive chair. Now this Paris C. Dunning is the individual who is annoum-ed with a great flourish of trumpets to speak in this City and in Union Township this week. He still pretends to be a ' Democrat.' He, too, had his say ou the vexed question of slavery, and he " talk- edriAht out in meeting '" like his ' illus- trious predecessor."

The New York Journal of Comtrit rce says that the Breckinridge vote in thai City will probably much exceed the Douglas vote, notwithstanding the latter bus the endorse ment of Tammany flail and Mayor Wood, The same paper says that portion of the State u below the Highlands, comprising nearly or quite one-third of the Democratic votes in the State, is, we believe, decided ly in favor of Breckinridge, as compared with Douglas. In the State at large, Doug las is probably ahead, but will not long be so, if Breckinridge continues to gain as he has doue.' The Cleveland Democrat learns that Hon. Dt.niel P. Leadbetter, of Holmes county, a lite-long Jackson Democrat, is a warm sup porter of Breckinridge, and will attend the State Convention on the 7th inst. The Coal City (Lawrence, Pa.) Chronicle says that the most of the candidates recently uomiuated in that county, on the Demo cratic ticket, are out and out Breckinridge men. The Convention refused to pass any resolutions ou the Presidential question. "Old Abe s'' neighbors propose to have a grand mass meeting at Springfield, Ills., ou the Sth of August.

The steam ship Asia arrived this evening, with details of Foreign news via. Liverpool on the 21st and Queenstown, on the 23rd. The Europa arrived at Queenstown on the 21st. The bill to amend the Bankruptcy and insolvent laws is the one withdrawn from Parliament by the British Government. It will be again brought forward at the next session. Lord Ephinstone, late Governor of Bom bay, died on the 19th, aged 53. Advicer, from Syria state that the Chris tians are leaving the interior for the coas', to be under protection of European vessels. 32,000 person have already arrived at Dreistes Saybu. It is said that Abdel Cada had offered his services to Napoleon for the suppression of the atrocities at Lebanon if the French Government place at his disposal 3,000 men. He engages to pacify the Mountain in very little time. Reports were current in Paris of the is sue ot 200,000,000 francs, in Treasury bonds, for the expedition to Syria, which is to be on a large scale. Gen. Priehey had been appointed French Envoy to Syria, and he would be followed by a division of troops. Two French steam gun boats had been dispatched, and the Spanish Government were about to send ships of war to Syria. The Paris correspondent of the London Herald asserts that England will send a regimen, to Svria, and France 25,000 men under McMahon. This was regarded a3 an exaggeration, tiiougn mere was no uouut n strong expedition was being prepared by France. Great anxiety was felt at Beyrout re specting the fate of the Christians who, to the number of 45,000, had taken refuge in the South Kerr-rooln, and were surrounded by a powerful body of Druses. There i3 nothing of moment from Naples and Sicily. The refusal of the Neapolitan naval offi cers to act against Sicily is confirmed. Four frigates had joined in this pronunciamento. Thc steamer Ellen Veneernan, of Liverpool, and four other foreign vessels, had been seized at Naples. A semi-official Spanish journal says, in consequence of outrages committed on Span ish subjects in Yenezuela, the government had ordered some vessels of war there. Loniiox, July 21.

The French consul's re ports from Syria, state that the massacres which had taken place are the result of a conspiracy of the Mussulmen. The report having been spread among the Drupes that European diplomacy was about to drive away the Turks from Europe, the Druses determined on exterminating the Christians in Syria. Arrival of the Steamer Northern. tttgrn. New Youk, July 2d, m. The steamer Northern Light arrived with nearly one million in specie, and California dates to the 11th. News anticipated. She left Aspiuwall on the 25th. Advices from Guatamala, state that Walker left Ruatan on the 21st of June in a schooner, accompanied by 100 men, and that she was joined by another vessel uext day, and was seen off Hog Island. It was suspected he intended to make a descent on l imoa or Truxilla. Tho interior of Salvador has been visited by a severe earthquake ; it is reported that St. Vincent is destroyed. Advices from Valpariso are to July 2nd, aud Callao to the 4th. A letter from the latter place states the difficulty between Peru and the U. S. was still unsettled, the Peruvian Government obstinately refuses any concession. Matters in Equador look improving for France, and the Peruvian government had sent her two steamers and other assistance. Affairs looked squall' iu Bolivia. General Nelson had gone there to take command of the Bolivian army. It had leaked out that 10,000 gold ounces, supposed to have been shipped aboard a Chilian ship at Mattias Tousino, which was wrecked off the coast of Brazil, were not put aboard the supposed wreck intentionaly. The guilty parties fled to Europe. New Vobk, August 2. Tho Palermo correspondence of the New York limes says the existence of a secret treaty between France and Piedmont by which the lalter will be allowed to annex Sicily. Piedmont can also have Venice if she can win her. France in return is to have the isthmus of Sardinia and Elba with other territorial grants. It is alleged that the trcatv is already signed.

The steamer Columbia with a barge in tow, returning ! from an excursion, came in collision last I evening, in Hellgate, with the schooner G . W.Baldwin from Boston. Both were damag ed, and one of the passengers of the steamer was drowned. Advices from Nassau report a slave i schooner ashore on Land ward key. She left Africa with four hundred negroes of whom forty had died, the balance had been brought 1 to Nassau by wreckers. The vessel's name is unknown. The Captain is said to have I cut his throat the fir9t day out, and the j Mate shortly after was drowned, three of the crew were at Nassau. The steamship Asia from Liverpool on j the 21 inst., via, Queenstown on the 22d, ' will be up at 3 o.t-lock. Beautiful Demonstration. The meeting of the Republican Club last evening was one of the most enthusiastic ot the campaign. Although there was no ex- j tra attempt made to drum up a crowd, Mo zart Hall was filled to its utmost capacity. Judge Baker delivered an able and eloquent address, which was received with every demonstration of applause and enthusiasm. The " Wide Awakes,'" who turned out with 11!. lamps, created a great furore wherever they passed. Their neat uni forms, gentlemanly bearing, and the precision with which they went through their evolutions was spoken of in tcrm3 of admiration by all who witness ed the parade. They passed through La uiasco followed by a large concourse of citi zens, and were greeted with the encomiums ot the charmed residents of that vicinity. There was no yelling no confusion every thing was conducted in the best of order and the whole affair demonstrated the quiet and determined work the Lincoln men in tend doing to redeem this county from Dem ocratic misrule this fall. e noticed one thing lacking in the pro cession of the Wide Awakes. That was a handsome flag. We are sure however, that the young lady friends of the fine company will soon remedy that defect. "A Whopper.'' Bill Dunbar sent us a watermelon last evening that is enormous iu its proportions. Measured lengthwise its size is four feet three inches ; arouud tbe middle, two feet five inches ! Who can beat it? We think of having " the printers,'' when they eat it, scoop the two halves out and save the shells. Then they will be kept for the purpose of conveying the two wings of the Democracy up Salt River next Novem ber. The boats will be large enough and the factions small enough for the occasion. BjtlJSonie of the more respectable of the Douglas men, and several of the Bell men who have been deceived into membership in the Douglas Club, feel heartily ashamed of the conduct of the Guards at two or three of their night Falstaffian parades ; and par ticularly is this feeling manifest iu regard to the ungentlemanly behavior in front of this office on Wednesday night. No such conduct is seen in the ranks of the Lincoln Wide Awakes. Let all order-loving per sons observe the difference in the two or ganizations. B5.After the Breckinridge demonstra tion ot Tuesday Charles Coulon of this city, a prominent German Douglas Democrat, for years the leading adviser, and most reliable defender of the faith among the Germans, recently a Justice of the Peace, and one of the .Marshils of the Douglas procession on the 18th, announced bis fixed determination to support Lincoln, and his desire on a fit ting opportunity to give his reasons public ly for his action. We are informed that his chief reason is the impossibility of electing Douglas, and hi3 preference, between Lin coln and Breckinridge, for Lincoln. Like all other sensible observers, he sees that Douglas cannot be elected, either by the people or the House, and he has no wish to strengthen pro slavery measures by voting so as to defeat the only man whose policy opposes slavery extension. We arc well acquainted with Mr. Coulon, aud know him to be an able and honest op ponent of slavery extension and govern mental corruption. We are glad that he has taken the stand he has, and believe that hundreds of other honest Douglas men will follow his example before the elections. We hope that Mr. Coulon tuay come dov. n here and talk to his old Douglas friends and others during the campaign. He will convince many who stand out against Old Abe, of the error of their ways.
