People of Centre cchuty, your favorite eon is before you, a candidate for your suffrages. Remember, Centre county has never bad a Governor, it is high time her claims wore rec. gnized. Col.

CURTIN AT —On Friday last a■ monster meeting was held at Pittsburg which was addressed by Col. Curtin, Morton McMichael, G. A. Grow. The wildest en thusiasm prevailed, and everything promises w an immense majority for Curtin and Lincoln. BNbji.igheny county alone will give a majority r A Deniagrogtie's bid for OfUco, Throe weeks or m.ire since, Floury D. Fos<- j ter mode a great flourish in challenging An- ; die sr G. Curtin, to meet him before the peo- ! pie of Pennsylvania, and fairly discuss the, leading ifSues involved in the present can vass. The challenge was promptly accepted by the Republican candidate, with an imme- : diaie nffer of entering on the cuntest, and i discussing all the issues. But Henry D ' Foster was not willing to meet a fearless man on the stump, for the purpose of discussing j the great political questions of the age, and i therefore made after propositions restricting J the debate and confining the discussion only 1 to such questions as he deemed proper and at ! issue. This cowardly excuse was made in order tc escape the responsibility of the meet ing; and in the meautimo Henry D. Foster has been in training by William A, Stokes, W, 11. Welsb and the custom bouse clique of Philadelphia. The result of that training was the production of a speech on Monday : evening, in the city of Philadelphia, cstensi- I bly originated by Henry D. Fobter, but in i reality prepared, concocted and arranged by j the gentlemen aforesaid and the clique here in before named. As a literary effort, the speech is a great failure. As a logical pro duction, it is weak and unreliable. As a po litical paper, it is full of misstatements and perversions—aDd as a bid for the votes of the people cf Pennsylvania, it is beneath the character of the smallest politician in the smallest village of the smallest State in the Union. It has but one merit, and that con sists in the audacity of its assertions—while the billingsgate flourish of its assault on W. 11, Seward, proves Heury D. Foster's pan - dering propensity to tbe lusts and prejudices of ignorant people. He was compelled to make this assault, to satisfy the southern suf porters of his master, James Buchanan, who still dreams that there is force in the pass oris which he has so successfully wield ed to impair the dignity of the Executive sta tion, and divide an organization which ele vated him to place anrd power. Mr. Foster plants himself on the Reading pla'form. By this he endorses the principle of Douglas, and in spirit reiterates tho senti ments of carjlessoess as to whether slavery is voted up or down' He declares that the people Lave a right to introduce or exclude siavoty from territory, as they please—and with this stale and flimsy declaration of a right, knowing that all the machinery of government under its present organization, is an antagonism to the extension of slivery from the territory. IleDry D. Foster comes before the people of Pennsylvania as the ad vocate of a sovereignty that is worthless, im practicable and unreliable. He adopts this mode of argument to silence and appease the "ppuatter sovereign," and abridges the priv ilege by placing i: within the restrictions of the courts in order to nulify and cajole hta slave-code sympathizers. These are happy conclusions to arrive at, particularly for one who stands between the fire of two hostile factions, each differing distinctly on this great question, and each determined to hold him responsible to their exposition of this modern Democratic faith. On the question ot the Tariff, lienry D. Foster is about as safe and reliable as James K. Polk was claimed to be on the same eub* ject. It is of course a game of brag, which he will never be called on to verily in any position to which he may hereafter be called. But in the present state of the Democratic party, with the history of their past decep tion on the Tariff question, and the experi ence of '43 befor3 the eyes of the American people, it is not likely that Ilanrv D. Foster can deceive them on this great act of legisla tion fur tue benefit and protection of labor. The history of legislation proves this asser tion. The career and condition of tho pres ent Democratic organization illustrate how wfll it Las estimated the prosperity of the country. In its iuin and dismemberment we have an exhibition of that ruin which Democratic legislation has portended for la bor ever sioco it took possession of thepow ers of the government, nor can lienry D. Fos ter prove it to have done more, if he were to continue in his professions of devotion to t'np interests of labor until doomsday cast its dark pall over the whole country. There is literally nothing but sophistry sod Catery in this entire speech. Blended with tbo Irish blarney of Billy Stokes, it has a twang of that deceitful coolness with which Foster disposas of a responsibility when he i< embcrraeeed, It may satisly the leaders of these broken factions—it may appease the Administration, and it may console Foster himself—hut it will never satisfy tbe honest voters of Pennsylvania. It is nothing more ibsn a tribute to deinagogucism—a mean and masterly effort to deceive ar.d delude houest men in air hour of great dinger and a crisis of immense importance.— llarrisburg Tele graph. Breckinridg-0 Tfloa for Disunion. Is it Dot little remarkable though p 'rfect*' ly natural —that all tho Disunisn men in the country should be so zcaluua in the support Breckinridge ? The Hon. Rt-üben Davis, of Mississippi, in a speech delivered in the llouse oi Represen tatives, the 6;h June, 1860, (see appendix to Congressional Globe, Ist session, 36 Con grer, page 3879,) ea d : "For reiiel from all these causes of com plaints and aggr. ssion we have been corapsl ied to look to disunion a3 the only remedy.

Its flies may break through the event that confines it in the next six months, and blood will deluge tho land, and the sword destroy the ceople." Mr. Simpleton, of Mississippi, in a speech in the IL uso ot Representatives, 19th, Dec. last, said. ; " "So that, when the day shall arrive that n Black Republican is elected President of the United Siates—and whenever such a man undertakes to force himself upon us, then you will find that every arm in the South will be nerved for resistance, and that the days of the Republia are numbered."—(see app. to Con.

On account of the ab sence of some of our hands we are compelled to issue a half sheet this week. •W3E3C3E3 CSZWXTJES USMOCNAT For ike Centre Democrat ,f Tu sousand Folkes." J, S. & J. J. BRISBIN, GENTLEMEN: — I see of late, two or three articles in the Democrat ic Watchman, which the editors of that sheet would have us believe, ware written in Half moon, but the author, I presume, dues not live in this end of the County, in as much, as the Democrats here say, that they do not approve of tho article found in the Watchman of the 23d of August, giving a description i f a meeting of the Peoples Party at Storms - town, alleging that they would neither be guilty of stating such falsehoods, nor of such vulgar personalities, as are found in that ar ticle, consequently, we are driven to the con elusion that these articles are Editorials, but are not in the locality that we usually find Editorials. But it spems that bis Excellency J. S. Barnhart, is the bead and front of "that sheet, and wants it distinctly understood, that he does the Ilead-work for the Watch man. I would not rob-biw of a particle of the Glory. Then the conclusion is inevita ble that be is the author of the article, Bjgn ed "Old man and a siraight out American," and is in perfect keeping with the man. But to the article. Mr. Barnhart says the meet ing was a fizzle, that may be the opinion ot the Editor, but he has given us no proof of it. I deny it, and call for the proof; now, I think it will be slow coming, unless be can substitute slang tor truth, at which he is ex cellent. But Smithy, why did you not pitch into the arguments, or declarations of the speaker, if you were describing a Political meeting? But that would have taken argu ment founded on facts, in place of low, con temptible slang, and as you abound in the latter and deal very slightly in the former, it would have been inconvenient, consequent ly you used of that which you have always on hand, and are capable of manufacturing at your pleasure. But one of your argu ments, to prove tho meeting a failure, shows the weight of yonr arguments, generally.— You say Mr. Daniels said, there would be ''lu sousand Folkes ot it"—if Mr. Daniels had said so, could you not have written it correctly without mimicking his broken Eng lish? Will the Germans refer to the article referred to, and see whether the thrust is at the qjeeting or at Mr. Daniels, because he don't speak English as well as the Editor of the Watchman, it is clear then, that it is not Mr. Daniels' polities that the Editor of the Watchman is quarrelling with, but delights hiraself in mocking Mr. Daniels because he don't speak as good English as the Editor.— The Germans understand here, pretty gener ally, that the Editor is the mocker of their German brethren, and it wili be qufie as likely to damage the prospects of the party which keeps the mocking Editor in the front of its furces, as that silly skull story that is heralded all through the country will damage the prospects of Col. Curtin. Put tu sousand Folkes, and the skull story together, and see if they mate. Oh consistent Smithy, if you felt so much sympathy for the Germans cease to mock them. The next argument of Mr- Barnhart, to prove the meeting a fizzle, is drawn from the circumstances of tbe citizets of Stormstown, at which he manifests great concern.— "Stormstown owns two kettle Drums and one fife. Well, what of that, you say that is de scribing the meeting. Why Mr. Barnhart, we haye some military spirit here, and how could it be otherwise, v. hen your candidate for che Assembly lives here, and is a military man all oyer; aud how could we do withon music, if we should make it on kettle drums ? And we have no Band, so we must substitute the Drums and file. But the Editor eught to know that we are in very moderate circum stances, aod cannot publish to the w arid that we have twelve hundred acres of land in the West. Now if that land was only in the South, where "Capital owns Labor, and La bor is.dishonorable, and Poverty a crime." and the Editor looking after his lands, he would have been spared the humiliation he seems to have been subjected to, by the pres ence of "bare headed, dirty and rageed chil dren," which he speaks of. Now Mr. Barn hart, if you had been in tbe South, those yal j ler Girls, you speak of, being associated on that day with tha white children, (which, by I the way, is as false as the other srate.sment" ! you have made,) wou'd not have offended 1 your refined tastes ; the familiarity of Capi tal with Labor, must have softened your prejudices somewhat. But then you jay you were describing a Political meeting iu a Democratic Paper. I say not—it was trie persons there, the ragged ones, dirty, bafe headed children, and our Drums and fife. Will you tell your readers that you were describing the meeting, when you say uncle Jimmy Chambers said " he was conscious that he was President of the meeting, and could see with a|great deal of clearness," &o. Now did he say eo, say Smith", did ho ? if he did not, then, that is what wo call a lie. I say he did not, hut suppui-e ho had, why single out certain words, or phrases if please, made use of by that gentlemen, and state an untruth—first that you may drag their phra ses in to make a thrust at Mr. Chambers.— Was that necessary either to describe the meeting or prove it a fizzle ? Why this per sonal abuse ? It has become very difficult in this end of the county, and especially in this town, to talk sufficiently plain. If there should he a little of the German accent about our speech then our English don't come up to your standard, and then our words will appear in your advertising sheet like the hand-writiDg on the wall, I presume you dislike our votes as much, or more than our " kettle drums, bare headed, dirty, ragged children. Negroes don't vote here, in fact we have none at a'l, as we can't own labor, but tbe parents of these bare headed, bare footed and dirty children do, and some of the " tu eousand" kind, and clerks, if the name is not objectionable to the editors of tho Watchman, in place of counter hoppers. But Mr. Barnhart, the gentleman for whom your sympathies have become so much enlisted so recently, had to come in for a share of personal abuse. For what? We are told in ordtr that tbe meeting might be de scribed ; but then your sympaties were not aroused." What do you say in that article of McWilliams' ? " lie got on the stand, made a polite bow, said Fellow citizens, coughed once or twice, said Fellow citizens, coughed again, said fellow citizens, I was going to tell you an anecdote about a very wicked Scotch man but 1 have furgotten it." Now will your fxcellency say this is true? Come now, bo honest. Was it necessnry to publish that lie to describe the meeting at Stormstown ? Now I say that is as false as the other state ments made. You had no tears to shed for Mr. McWilliams then, and your weeping eyes could be dried without trouble. I pra- Bume as tfiose tears may have been crocodile tears. Now don't lay Mr. McWilliams'de feat to heart so much, If you can find no other remedy look at the coughing artie e and that may afford relief. But why change the tone of your paper so soon ? please ex plain. I think I can guess ; hut you are mistaken in the man. But the editor seys in his second article, " Adam the law maker arrived, and by Tuesday evening h had fix ed in his mind that he would be tbe next Prothor.otary for Centre Co." Now, friend Barnhart, I suppose you must havo been dreaming over your own defeat for that of fice, as Adam never had any aspirations in that direction. I think that Mr. Weaver, by the help of eno S.itn, made the landing that time, but supposed the thing was forgot ten. And now, my excellent friend, in the hour of your unparalled prosperity don't for get that things change a little, end capital may not own labor. In conclusion we would advise you to drop the.t dog story about Col. Curtin, for we live in a land where dogs bite and there is some danger, if the thing is kept up, of one ofyour candidates beiog bitten. TIIE YOUNG MAN HAI.FMOON Sept.. 1860. For the Centre Democrat. The Whig party in 1810, in National Con vention, nominated Gen. Harrison for Pres ident, and John Tyler for Yice President. — They were presented to the people for their support without any platform of principles. And to guard against the General commit ting himself upon any of the issues involved in the contest, a committee was appointed to take charge of his correspondence, who pro claimed tu tho American people " that he had no piiuoipb-s for the public eye." In that campaign this was the text of all Dem ocratic speakers who were not sparing of their denunciations of the Whig party as the " no principle .party," and charged them with keeping their principles opt of view for the purpose of deceiving the people. And they must certainly did succeed by accommo dating themselves to the v rsified views, feel ings and interests of different localities and sections of the country. But they " paid dear for the whistle," Never was a lesson taught more severe, nor a punishmeut more richly deserved, than the party received from John Tyler in bis administration of the gov ernment. But what Democrat, in that diy, expect ed, or had tho remotest idea, that ever the time-honored party of Jefferson, the father of Democracy, would become so demoralized as to be found struggling fur existence p.gainst tho power of an administration of its own creation. Strange and unexpected as such a spectacle may he, yet we ba7e it now pre sented to our view. The vital principle ol Democracy, that the peouie are sovereign, capable of self-government, is ignored by that portion of rbe Democratic party now un der the lead of J-N Buchanan,Yancey, Illiott, Orr, and oiher disuniouists of tho South who are supporting Breckinridge and Lane. Not only wou ; d they withhold from the people of the Teiri.ories the right to govern tnem selves, but they refuse to submit to the voice cf the people as expressed by their Repro tatiyes in National Convention, because a majority of the party, by their Representa tives, refuse to abandon principles to which it is solemnly pledged, and adopt others that are hoisted to the views and feelings of a large portion of the party, they practically deny the right of the majority to rule, aud in order to cover over their infamy, and in the event of being defeated and disgraced, they dssirs that none shall escape untarnished And hence, with that independence that on ly belongs to bo'.d offenders, they ask those who adhere to the political creed ihfcy have abandoned for the time being, to lay aside principles and join them in supporting men for office who have " no principles for the public eye," hut privately are " ail things unto all men." A comfortable position, tru ly, fur honest men. Mr. Blair, who has been bargaining for the Senate for several years past, and now considers he has the nomination for the next term secured, if Dr. Foster or Sheriff Halljdon't interfere to dis turb it, may cry fusion, Rird. proscribe those who have the honesty to resist it. Yes, ho may recommend the Cressor bargain us more open and dignified than his recent ar rangement which he thinks secures to him the Senatorial nomination. But it is to be feared that both will terminate in disgrace to him aDd all concerned in the unholy trans actions. We have a very beautiful illustration of how the fusion scheme works in the case of Gen. Foster. lie is reported as having made a strong Popular Sovereignty ppeech lateij [at Somerset. The Pciinsi/'vanian, a dis union .and Breckinridge paper, says that Gen. Foster was in the city ar.d was inter rogated as to the speech, and denied that he ever uttered such a speech. Gen. Fleming, the candidate for Congress, is.now busily engaged in soliciting votes.— Heretofore he has been the supporter of the Administration at Washington, and the i measures that have distracted and disgraced j -the Democratic party. Now he is for Dou glas and non-intervention, or for Breckin ridge and intervention, as it may suit the person to whom he talks. Is this Democra cy ? Surely net the Jeffcrsonian—not the Democracy of our fathers. If the spirit of Jackson was allowed to re turn to this world of soirows and "irrepres sible conflicts," and put in its old mortality, these Southern disunionists, and Northern parasites, would be denounced in language that would make them tremble like Felix when Paul reasoned of temperance, right ! eousness and judgment to come. Fusion! Yes, fusion, and "no good Dou glas man can oppose fusion," says Blair, the celebrated political cotractor, and fusion, reiterate the hightened and dignified Editors of the Democratic Watchman, and tearing that honest supporters of Douglas would not have discernment sufficient to detect the in aonjfitfency and wickedness of fusion, thiy pubdhed the following, which I take from ''their issue of the 28th of August:— "Mr. Douglas is traversing the country* especially in the Nrtth and East, dosing out the panacea ot "squatter sovereignty" as a remedy for all our ills appealing to the "high er law," and eudeavoring, with the magic of his words and his presence; to cajole the peo ple to his support. In this he will misera bly fail. In the exalted position of Presi dent of these United States, the people will exact something more than the qualities of a traveling mountebank. Mr. Douglas in his recent letter, has averred that his objecc was to take the question ol slavery out of the halls of UoDgreas ; and yet during his whole Ad ministration he has kept up the slavery agi tation with a persistency and fiercentss amounting almost to insanity. It has paus ed him to neglect every other duty in Con gress except the defence of his consistency and the advocacy of his views in regard to slavery. He has been remarkable for his fa cility in dodging votes, and wnen he aid vote for his votes with the Republicans.— With that party not only did he vote on the Lecomptou question, but on most incidental questions, in total inconsistency with his for mer votes.' The friends of tba "Little Giant" should thank the Editors of the Watchman for ma king it known that he voted against the Le compton Swindle. About 3000 democratic voters of this Congressional District, expres sed their disapprobation of Allison White's vote on that question, in a vray that he felt and understood. And I presume they are ready to let Gen. Fleming know thaf'strad ling the crack" won't save him. Tbey will expect an open and candid avowal of his sens timents. If Lycoming is to furnish us with all the Congressional Candidates for Con gress and the Senate, we have a right to de mand that they be men of principle, honor able men, because we havo hypocrites enough of our own, without having any saddled up on us from abroad. We expect her to ply us every ten years with a Census taker, for that we will not require more than tho ordinary abilities of a good accountant.— But for Congress and the Senate, we do in sist on you to give us you: bast men—men wfct have principles for-the public eye. If Gen. Fleming adheres to the doctrine r.f the Kansas and Nebraska bill, as he and a!' other democrats understood it in 18f>0, and is opposed to fusion with bolters and aecedars from the regular organization, let. us know it, speak out General, and then we can sttn t.ort you and maintain our manhood and self Aspect. Mora anon. A DEMOCRAT. . Where is Foster ? This question still remains without a sat isfactory solution. When the General was finally compelled to announce his willing ness to meet Col. Cut-tin on the stump, we, in common with others, thought that his po sition .would speedily be dtflued. We were mistaken. On the 11 ch ult., Mr. Foster made a speech io Somerset, in which he took the ground " that Congress had no right to legislate for the Territories on the subject of Siavery," etc. This speech was reported to Forney's Press, aad was very satisfactory to 'he Dou glas men. A few days after, Mr. Foster be ing iu Philadelphia, found himself at log gerheada'vith the administration men there; upon which he deniid the correctness of his Son trset speech as reporred to the Press.— The Pennsylcaniuii came cut with the follow- mg: 'Gen. footer has ajrived In this city, and we find, efpon inquiry, thar, just as we rs peered, the statements of the ietter are utter ly destitute of truth, no si. o i remarks having: been made by him. either there or elsewhere.' The I'ress, in reply, proved the correctness of its report, and after administering a little advice tu Mr. Foster, requests him to define his position, and concludes its article with the following: "The eainest friends of Judge Douglas, however they may deplore Gen. Foster s weakness in constantly consulting with the enemies of that illustrious statesman, g'adly greeted his Somerset speech in favor of the great p; inciple of self G ivernmeut; and they stood, and stand, ready tn vote for him on that a\ jwal. But there must be no marked cards, no loaded dice, in this great game.— Gin. Foster cannot run on two platforms lie eanaot real: * a speech in Somerset and disavow it in Fniladelphia. lie cannot set the tens of thousands of votes of the Douglas by catering for the contemptible Breckinridge 'minority. His silence might have carried him through ; but when he will talk it must not be with a forged tongue,— Does he stand by his Somerset speech or does he repudiate it ? This is tle question, lie must answer it or the people will do it for him in October." What a contrast exists between the course of Mr. Foster and the manly course of A. G. Curtin.- We da not wonder that the people are everywhere deciding to go for the Peo ple's candidate. Mr. Foster's case is already decided. —.Jersey ■ Shore Vedette. The Locofooos are pediing round a vile slander on Col. CURTIN, in which they al- Ipge that he once spoke of the Germans as •'double skulled Dutch." Notwithstanding this thing has ben winned home to them by a public statement made by a German c ient of 31 r. Curtin's, who says the phrase was used by hint (the German) in Curtin's office, and in reference to another with whom he had a law suit: we say that although this lie has been nailed, Locofocos are etill bandy ing it about to present any German who may find it to the inte'st of the laboring classes to do so, from votjng for ANDREW G. CUR TIN. These wou'd b%, at election times, the special friends of the Germans, had bettor diop such insinuations. Mr. FOSTER is. just as guilty of "slandering the Dutch" in cool blood as anybody eisg, and a little more HO. If it were waile, we might refer to what we haye beard of his sneering at our German friends, as, in his "Sunday morning dishabille,'i be viewed-them entering their church just opposite. In short, if. Foster's friends don't want a Volume of rich expos ures made about his private affairs and pen cuniary transactions, ( # the proof of which is all on baDd,) they had better stop elundering Curtin. We Incw no one dwelling it#a more tender gjass-house than Foster.- Greensburg , }tr>ald. A Rumored Political Bargain. The Philadelphia Evening Bulletin says that an arrangement was consummated a nigbtor two ago, by which the Bell-Everett party in that city is to be sold out to the De mocracy. The leaders of the Bellites, Doug' 1 twites and Breckinridgers held a meeting and perfected the terms of the sale, They are as follows: —The Bell and Everette city tick et is to be supported, both branches of the Democracy dropping their candidates to that end. Mr, Brodhead, the Democratic candidate for congress in tho Second Dis trict. is to be slaughtered, and Henry M. Fuller, the Bell and Everett candidate lor the same position, is to be supported by the fusi'lnists. In return for all this the Bell and Evrretters are to support (Jen. Foster for Govenor, and also the regular Democrat ic nominees f>r Congress in the First. Third, Fourth and Fifth Districts. The Presiden tial question is to be left open until after tbe second Tuesday in October. Tois is a very nice arrangement; but we hardly think it will amonnt to much. What ever leade s may do, voters will not permit themselves to bs sold like cattle, it tbey Lave any manhood left. MEETING AT PLEASANT GAP The largest and most enthusi astic township meeting ever held in Centre County, was held by American Republicans, at Pleas ant Gap, on last Saturday Even ing. A delegation of more than sixty wagons left this place in the evening, for the meeting. When we arrived there we found that a very large crowd was already on ; the ground, and everything ready to open the meeting, which was done by electing lion. Andrew Gregg, President. The meeting was then addressed by Hon. Jas. T. Hale, R. G, Durham, Esq., and W. W. Ilrown. The speeches were received by the people with the most enthusiastic applause.— After the meeting closed the peo ple retired to their homes, re-as sured that at the coming elec— : tion victory would perch upon | the glorious banner of American : Republicanism, On Cur cw:t Hook.
