Thus tho wholo subject Is pre sented, nnd our readers will bo enabled to judge It upon its merits. In addition. wo will publish, next week, a paper signed by a number of citizens with drawing their names from tho recom mendation In favor of Colonel Tate, ns published In tho Democrat and Star. In republishing tho recommenda tion wo omit all tiro names appended to it In tho Democrat ami Star except a tow of tho leading ones, because It ap pears that many of tho signatures were unauthorized or obtained by misrepre sentation. Tho omission wo coneelvo to bo an act of Justlco to tho gentlemen concerned. CANDIDATE FOR REPRESENTA TIVE. From (ho Deinocrnt nnd Star. IIloomsiiui'.o, Coi.irsmiA County, PA.,1 Septembers. Ivy). J ifb the Democratic Standing Committee of Columbia County: ai:xTi.uMEN, Wo deem It our duty as Democrats to call your attention to circumstances connected with tho recent nominations for Stato Senator and Rep resentative In tho districts indicated, with which our county is connected; nnd we do tlds with a view especially to the great Democratic party In general, and of tho interests of the counties with which wu are politically connected in particular. At tho recent Democratic Convention of this county, John Snyder and R. C, Fruit, Esis., were appointed ltopreson tatlvo Conferees on behalf of said conn ty, and instructed by tho Convention as follows : dissolved. That John Snyder, of Or ange, and R. C. Fruit, of JSIoom, bo mid arc hereby nppointed Representative Conferees to meet similar Loniereesoi Montour County, on Tuesday, tho eight- ceth instant, for tho purpose of nomi nating a candidate for Assembly, with instructions to support tho choice of Montour County. Provided, said county uso her influence In tho support ol a can didate for State Senator trom Columbia County. This resolution was unanimously adopted by tho Democratic Convention of Columbia County; but at tho meet ing of tho Representative Conferees of tho Counties of Columbia and Montour, Mr. Thomas Chulfant, tho candidate for Member from Montour, Insisted that tho proviso contained in said resolution was uncalled for and unnecessary, for tho reason tluit tlio nominee for Stato Sena- tor was- already conceded to Columbia County; and Mr. Chalfunt himself, as well as his Conferees, Joseph II. Camp bell and John M,'WiUiama, Ess., as also his personal friends who liad ac companied him from Montour to Blooms lmrg, pledged themselves to bo on hand at the timo of the coming Senatorial Conference, to fcecurc, beyond tho possi bility of a doubt, the nomination of Hon. Levi L. Tate, as candidate for Stato Senator, in tho spirit of tho above resolutlou. After this pledge tho Rep resentative Conferees of Columbia Coun ty ga"vo tho nomination of Member to Mr. Chalfant. Rut what happened at tho Senatorial Conference'.' (It was held, as all know, after Mr. Chalfant was nominated as member.) Why, neither Mr. Chalfant nor any person representing him, nor his Interest as candidate, nor the feeling of Montour County in favor of tho sentiment em bodied in tho foregoing resolution, was present; ana although this Senatorial Conference lasted two days, and one hundred und twenty-one ballotings wero had, and although many opportunities wero afforded to tho Montour Conferees to securo tho nomination of lion. Levi li. Tato, yet not a single vote did either of tho Conferees of Montour County cast in favor of the choice of Columbia County, which choice was made in sol emn convention. Comment is unneces sary. It may bo remembered that, under tho apportionment bill of 1837, the nomina tion for Stato Senator was given to Sny der County, tho smallest In tho District, and'a county giving a majority against us; thus passing by, for tho time, tho claims of tho heavy Democratic major ity or Columbia. A liko tiling lias, through gross misrepresentation and po litical intrigue, happened now, in pal pable violation of conceded claims. Tho Democracy of Columbia County demand that not only tlioso pledges but her claims shall bo respected. This, wo say, after full consultation with thoso who aro truo friends of Constitutional liberty as well as of political honesty ; una it is asked that, In vindication of right, and in rebuke of violated pledg es, Hon. Lovi L. Tate, tho choieo of tho Democracy of Columbia County in Con vention assembled, bo placed In tho Hold as tho nomluco for Representative. Most respectfully, your ob'tserv'ts, Leonard li.

A new Radical campaign paper, to W called tho Great dlepubllc, Is to bo published at Washington by tho Na tional Union League, under tho edito rial supervision of J, M. Edwards, Ej., formerly Commissioner of tho General Land Ofllco, and lately mado Postmaster to tho Scnato. Tin: Now Jersey Republican caucus yesterday agreed unanimously upon tho choice of Alexander O. Cnttell for Uni ted States Senator. THE OTHER SIDE. From (he Dnnvlllo Intelligencer. lb the. voters and freemen of tte- lien rescntatlve District computed of the Counties of Columdia und Montour. Havino been regularly nominated for tho ofllco of Representative by tho Democratic Convention of my own coun ty, (Montour), and again by tho Confer ees of tho District In conference of botli counties composing this Representative District, I havo Ucome by this action of tho party tho regular Democratic can didate for tho ofllco in question, and as such claim tho support of thoso of my fellow-citizens who regard Its uagcs. This nomination Imposes upon mo un ties which must bo met in a spirit of good faith and with promptness and en ergy. Under theso circumstances 1 now ad dress you for tho purpose of saying that propose to appear before my follow- citizens of Columbia County at as many points as can bo readied before tho elec tion, to confer with them upon tho Issues of tho times, and vindicate my own nomination. 1 am Induced to adopt this courso from having Just learned that In Columbia County a volunteer or Irregular candi date has appeared upon tho scene, and that an attempt will lie mado to induce intelligent and faithful Democrats of that county to violate their party uages by voting against tho regular nominee of tho party. A statement of reasons for this disor ganizing project is presented in a paper said to besignedbyanuniberofthoeltl zens of Columbia County, and addressed to the Chairman of tho Standing Com mitteo. I call your attention, fellow-citizens, to tho fact that very few of tho persons whoso namcsarc subscribed to that paper havo any personal knowledge of any one of the matters set forth as facts in that statement, and also th.it tho signatures woreobtainod by private solicitation, on false and unfair representations, without any opportunity being afforded to mo or inv friends to bo heard upon tho questions involved. This disorganizing project for defeat Ing tho regular Democratic nomluco of tho district was concocted by a few mis chievous spirits in secret, and sprung suddenly upon tho people without any opportunity for explanation or defence on my part. I am informed by several of thoso whoso names appear to this disorganiz ing document that they permitted the uso of their names under a misconcep tion of the facts, and am further inform ed nnd believe that tho names of others wero used without their consent. I emphaticieally deny, and am pre pared to disprove, tho material state ments contained in that paper relating to my connection with the Senatorial nomination, which aro made tho pretext for tills opposition to me, and 1 promise them that this shall be done most thor oughly; for although the matters al leged, if true, would not Justify opposi tion to a regular nomination, I am de termined that no Imputation of u single improper act, which is false, shall rest upon me. I did uso my influence in good faith to havo the Senatorial nomination go to Columbia County after tho Montour Conferees should give a proper support to tho candidate of their own county, and at my Instanco Mr. Leldy and Mr. M'Cormlck attended tho llrst day, and Messrs. Campbell and Ammcrmau on the second day of tho Conference, to se curo such result. Sickness In my fami ly prevented my own attendance. 1 now call upon my Democratic fellow-citizens to stand by tho regular nominations of their party, ono and all of them, which havo been mado in ac cordance with tho usages of tho party, and to oppose all attempts, eomo from what quarter they may, to defeat any of tho nominees, and to embarass us in our great contest for tho complete resto ration of tho Union, und for placing tho Government again under Democratic control. Thomas Chalfant. Danville, September II, Ml, GENERAL GRANT. Wunotico that sinco General Grant has prominently stood by President Johnson, somo of the Radical speakers and newspapers have been beginning, in a timid and indirect way, to make assaults upon him. Grant 1ms such a great and solid po-ltlon in tho confi dence and affections of tho American people, that It will not do at llrst to de nounce 1dm as a traitor, tyrant, and drunkard ; but they first hurl such epi thets with temendous fury at tho Presi dent, nnd then insinuate cautiously that Grant, by countenancing tho courso of tho President, is at least not doing pre cisely tho Radical tiling. They hope that thus they will shako the con lldenco that tho nation reposes in him, and when onco they aro ablo to do tills in the smallest degree, they will proceed to open bigger and louder guns upon him, till at last thoy can pour in hot shot and big balls as iiot and heavy ns thoso with which they bombard Presi dent Johnson himself. Only tho other day tho Tribune used language toward others of our generals who aro only less renowned than General Gcant.which shows what sort of epithets he may ex pect If bo docs not quickly eomo out In favor of Rutler's policy of hanging all tho Southerners who lust year surren dered nt Appomatox Court Houso and elsewhere. Tho dlfllculty about Grant agreeing to Uutler's policy, would bo in tho pos sibility that tho Radicals might yet or der him to practically carry It out ; and wo rather think ho kicks now because ho knows certainly ho would havo to kick then. Ho would not accept tho post of head hangman, nor could ho bo induced to erect a gallows for the brave Rebel whoso soldierly feelings ho oven declined to wound by nccepting his proilered sword. It Is possibly for this very reason that ISutler Is urging his hangman policy. Ho sees In It ids only hope of obtaining tho position now held by tho Illustrious man whom ho so heartily hates. General hanks, nlo, THE COLUMBIAN, BLOOMSBU11C, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER has Just thrown out Inoneof his speech es a dreadful suspicion about General Grant. Ho wants to know If any ono supposes it possible for Grant to " turn his guns" upon tho peoplo of tho North at tho order of President Johnson. Tho Mussachuetts General left this omin ous question unanswered. Wo think under tho circumstances, ho had better go to Chicago and get an answer direct ly from Grant himself, in tho interval between his finishing ono cigar and lighting another. We should like to bo present when tho query was had. jVcu 3 orc Times. GENERAL PRESS DISPATCHES, Prom Washington. CONFLICT ttf VlItatMA. Gr.NEltAL IIowaiid has received from Richmond, Virginia, the facts of n case that Involves the very important Issue, whether tho sentence of a military com mission, properly organized, and Its verdict olllcially approved, shall bo set nsldo by tho civil authority. On Janu ary nineteenth, 1SU0, Robert Drifting ham was nrrested at 1-ortress Monroe for tho murder of a negro. Ho was tried and found guilty by a military commission organized by order of Gen oral Miles, nnd the sentenco was ap proved and promulgated by tho Secre tary of War.

BLACK AND "WHITE. In tho city of Philadelphia they have been holding a great meeting, and havo Introduced tho future Drido and Drlde- groom, and celebrated tlio ceremonies of betrothal with duo pomp nnd games, after tho ancient style. For tho ilrst time In tho history of this nation a white woman nnd a buck Igger havo sat side by side as members of a political convention.

Anna knows her own tastes ; and If An na can forgive lilm tlio illegitimacy which ho boasts, and overcome the odors which he cannot repress, who shall blumo her? Tilton says In open convention that tills nigger stands head and shoulders above 11. "W. Deecher, and Tilton knows them both ; but let him remember this, that whilo H. W. Deecher may not heed tlio insult com ing from a creature of ills bounty, meared with the slimo of personal in gratitude, tlio men of all parties of tills country, its Union people, North and South, who have looked upon Mr. Deecher as a priest, an orator, and a pa triot, who exalted tho honor of our nation throughout the world, will not forget it, nor will they readily forgive the political tricksters who, in this Con volition, .gave opportunities for such in sults to tho white manhood of tho na tion. I'hero aro many who would think this Convention simply a matter of ridi cule. Tlioso self-sent, self-appointed delegates, hailing the degradation of their own race, tlio apostacy to prin ciple, or pretended principle, of a Senator of tho United States, tho lies, tho tergiversations, tlio hurly-burly, tho voto and no vote, tlio smash up all afford food for tho satirist; but, alas, they also afford a melancholy subject of observation to tlio American thinker, Freo love, mesmerism, miscegenation, Mornionism, and inildelity aro these to bo tho products of our American sys tem of freo government'.' Will wo never find means to check tho hunger of party that drives it to raise and fatten upon such excresences of an unquiet because progressive nation '.' Is there no way to bring back to tho decencies of raco the deluded masses who havo been intoxi cated to permanent fanaticism by the acts of seekers after political power Pauso for a moment and listen to Fred. Douglass, tlio " representative man." (Is tliero a country under the sun that possesses as many representa tive men as ours?) Listen to Douglas with truo negro morality, with a truo sense of ids proper rank in tlio scale of humanity, claiming to bo tho bastard son of a white man rather than be thought an unadulterated negro ; listen and hear him applauded by thousands of wliito men and white women, while In order to lesson ids connection witl Ills own race, ho boasts that his father was a white man and his mother a what? Imaglnotho feelings that would bo excited by hearing a white man pub licly boasting of his mother's infamy Is there any man so bewildered by tlio sophisms of politics .us not to feel in this very thing tho impassable gulf that lies between wlilte and black In their very instincts of right and wrong? This is all too sad for ridicule. The negro wo instance is said to bo tho most intelli gent of ids race, nnd tlio fostering care of ids intellect, the prompted power of his manhood, could not instil into him even a comprehension of that universal instinct of delicacy which in tlio white man, or white woman, makes tho char actor of mother sacred, and prevent: her own child from being tlio mouth piece of her fall, if fall sha does. To seo wliito men and white women in tho Convention of a great political party a party dominant in tho leglsla tion of tho country applaud and claim equality for this representative man with tho meanest wliito of tlio Caucus Ian race, is too sickening for ridicule. The wholo Convention, from first to last, abnegated all practical political character, and was neither mora nor less than an nngry eoterio of jmudo Ethnologists of two races nnd a half and tho humbugged peoplo of Phlla dolphin, who alone mado what parade and display of pageantry was made fool something liko tlio man who prom ised an evening interview with a lady ho wished to woo, found, on tho sudden entranco of a caudle into tlio room, that a lemaio nigger had been substituted Wo sympathize with tho vexation, but aro glad they met with it glad thisdi graceful spectacle was presented ; for having seen plainly where thoy aro drifting thoy yet may, in fear and In distrust, turn from tho slimy path to that road of truo progress which tlio white man has opened for ids own raco In the great reserved continents of tlio New World.

AVE have been furnished by a gentle man of unquo-tt lonublo respectability, a truthful abstract of tlio remarks of Dr. A. P. Dostle, nt tho mais meeting on Friday evening last, twenty-seventh ultimo. This speech was delivered from tho platform in front of tho Me chanic's Institute, to tho hi-go assem blage of negroes on I'liillppa Street, and must not, therefore, bo confounded with tho still moro violent and Incendiary address mado by htm, about an hour subsequent, from tho City Hull steps, to colored crowd which followed tho band of music from tlio Institute Tlio citizens to whom wo nro indebted for tlio report which is appended, is willing to tuko oath, if necessary, that it con- ;dns nothing but tlio truth : Dr. Dostle, in tlio courso of his re marks on Friday night, said : I want tho negroes to havo the right of suil'rage, and we will give them this right to voto. Tliero will be another meeting huro to morrow night, and on Monday night I wnn t vnu to eomo in vour nower. I want no cowards to come. I want only " v " bravo men to come, who will stand by us, and wo will stand by them. Como then in your power to that meeting, or never l-o to another political meeting in tlds Stato. "Wo havo three hundred thousand black men with white hearts, A!m, ono hundred thousand good and truo Union white men, who will light for and beside tlio black race, against tlio three hundred thousand hell-bound reb els, for now there are but two parties here. There aro no Copperheads now, Colonel Field, now making a speech in side, is heart and soul with us. 1 le and others who would not a year ngospeak to me. now take mo by tho hand. AVo nro four hundred thousantl to threo hundred thousand, and cannot only whip, but exterminate tho other party Judge Aboil with ids grand jury may indict us. Harry Hayes, with liis;)oc commitatus, maybe expected there, anil the police, with moro than u thousand men sworn in, may interfere with tlio Convention: therefore, let all bravo men, not cowards, come hero on Mon day. There will be no such puerile af- fairasat Memphis; Aid if interfered with the streets of SS'civ Orleans will run ivith blood ! The black raco with nino hundred millions is bound to rule the white raco of threo hundred millions. The Rebels say they havo submitted and accept the situation, but want you to do tho work and they will do the voting, and will you throw over them " tlio mantle of charity and oblivion?" "Wo will!" "Wo will!" was tho unanimous response of tho excited throng, to which Dr. Dostio vehement ly replied: "No, by God! wo won't, We aro bound to havo universal suf frage, though you havo tho traitor An drew Johnson against you," etc. Li tlds nnd other speeches of liko character lies tho wholo causo of tho bloody and distressing scenes enacted on Monday lost, upon tlio very spot whero tlio inllamniatory languago was uttered. Had tlio leaders or tho negro clique pursued a similar couro to that of Mayor Monroe, and advised tho col ored people to keep away from tho Con ventiun, and carefully avoid collisions with their opponents, as tlio Mayor did tlio white citizens, nil would havo been well. Even hail tlio ex-Convention members been arrested, by vlrtuo of nn order of court, It would then havo been performed in n quiet and peaceably manner, and justice would havo been done them ; for had tho District Coi decided against them, it cannot certainly bo charged that tho Supremo Cour would havo boon inllueuccd by lirel udlco against tho men or their prin ciples. Dut tlio moro closely tho atlair is Investigated, tlio clearer it becomes manifest that n collision bet wen our citi zens and tho negroes was a part of tho Radical programmo to wrest tho Gov ernment of our Stato from its citizens.
