CURTIN AT PITT-ui. ho. -On Friday last a monster meeting was held at Pittsburg wbieb was addressed by Cob Curtin, Morton [ McMichael, GA. Grow. Tiie wildest eu- L tbusiasm prevailed, and everything promises immense majority furCuriiD and Lincoln. -gLeuy county alone will give a majority least five thousand. A Seruagrogaci's bid far OfZca. ' Three weeks or more since, Ilenrv D. Fos- j j ter made a great flourish in challenging An ! drew G. Curtin, to meet him before the peo* : | plo of Pennsylvania, and fairly discuss the leading issues involved in the present can | vass. The challenge was promptly accepted by the Republican candidate, with an imme- j ! diate offer of entering on tbe contest, and i | discussing all the issues. But Henry D 1 Foster was not willing to meet a fearless man ; on the stump, for the purpose of discussing S the great political questions of the age, and ! j therefore mads after propositions restricting ! | the debate and confining the discussion only I to such questions as he deemed proper and at | issue. This cowardly excuse was made in ; order to escape the responsibility of the meet- ! \ ing; and in the meantime Henry D, Foster ! has been in training by William A. Stokes, : AY. 11. Welsh and the custom house clique of i Philadelphia. The result of that training i ; was tho production of a speech on Monday j evening, ia the city of Philadelphia, ostensi b'.y originated by Ilenrv D. Foster, but in reality prepared, concocted and arranged by the gentlemen aforesaid and the clique here in before named. As a literary effort, the speech is a great failure. As a logical pro dcction, it is weak and unreliable. As apo litical paper, it is lull of misstatements and | perversions—and as a bid for the votes of the ; people ( f Pennsylvania, it is beneath the character of the smallest politician ia the smallest village of the smallest State in the Union. It ha r bat one merit, and that eon i sists in the audacity of its assertions—while j the billingsgate flourish of its assault on W, ; H, Seward, proves Henry D. Foster's pan dering propensity to the lusts and prejudices jof ignorant pet pie. lie 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 i piass ons which he has so successfully wield I ed to impair the dignity of the Executive sta uon, and divide an organization which ele vated him to place atfd power. Mr. Foster plar ts himself on tbe Reading | pla'form. By this he endorses the principle ! of Douglas, and in spirit reiterates tho sen ti ! meats of carelessness as to whether slavery ;is voted up or down- lie declares that the j peopla have a right to introduce or exclude | slavery from territory, as they please—and with this stale and flimsy declaration of a j right, knowing that all the machinery of i government under its present organization, is an antagonism to the extension of si ivery from the territory. Henry D. Foster comes before the people of Pennsylvania as the ad vocate of a sovereignty that is worthless, ini ! practicable and unreliable. He adopts this , mode of argument to silence and appease tbe | "epuatter sovereign," and abridges the priv ! ilege by placing it within the restrictions of | the courts ia order to nulily and cajole his ; slave-code sympathizers. These are happy j conclusions to arrive at, particularly for cue | 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 tli3 question of the Tariff, Henry D. Faster is about as safe and reliable as James K. Poik was claimed to be on the same sab* jeef. It is of course a game of brag, which he will never be ealled on to verily in any posi ion 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 tbe Tariff i|Uestion, and tbe experi ence of '43 before the eyes of the American people, it ia not likely that Ilenry D. Foster j can deceive them on this great act of legisia i den for the benefit and protection of labor, j The history of legislation proves this asser tion. Tbe career and condition of thepres j ent Democratic organization illustrate how wtll it Las estimated the prosperity of the ! country. In its ruin and dismemberment j ; we have an exhibition of that ruin vrbich Democratic legislation has portended for la bor ever since it look possession of thepow ! ets of the government, nor can Ilenry D. Fos- I ter prove it to have done more, if ho were to i continue in his professions of devotion to thp i interests of labor until doomsday cast its i dark pal! over the whole country. There is literally nothing but sophistry and finery ia this entire speech. Blended j with tho Irish blarney of Billy Stokes, ic has ! a twang of that deceitful coolness with which Foster disposes of a responsibility when he 1i- emberrassed, It may satisfy the leaders Sof these broken factions—it may appeasa the I Administration, and ic may console Foster | l itnself—but it will never satisfy the honest voters of Pennsylvania. It ia nothing more ! 'hen a tribute to demagogucista—a mean and ! masterly effort to deceive ar.d delude housst ! men in an hour of great dinger and a crisis j of immense importance.— Uarrisburg Tele , 1 i/rarh.

I On account of the ab i sence of some of our hands we are ; compelled to issue a half sheet < this week. •srxaosi x^isssxsxochat Dor the Centre Democrat 'Tu sousand Follies." J, S. & J. J. Brisbin, Gentleuen* : I seo of late, two or three articles in the Democrat ic Watchman, which the editors of that sheet Kould have us believe, were written in Ilalf moon, but the author, I presume, does r.ot live in this end of the County, in as much, as the Democrats here say, that they do not approve of the article found in the Watchman of the 231 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 it, that ar ticle, consequently, we are driven to the con elusion that those articles are Editorials, but arc not ia the locality that we usually find Editorials. But it sterns that bis Excellency J. S. Barnliart, is the Lead and front of that sheet, and wants it distinctly understood, that he does the Ilead-work for the Watch man. I would not rob him of a particle of the Glory. Thea the conclusion is inevita ble that bo is the author of the article, sign ed "Old man and a straight 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 be has given us no proof of it. I deny it, and call for the proof ; now, I think it will be slow coming, unless he can substitute slang for truth, at which he is ex cellent. But Smithy, why did you not pitch into the arguments, or declarations of the speakers, 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 ynu have always on hand, and are capable of manufacturing at your pleasure. But one of your argu ments, to prove the meeting a failure, shows the weight of your arguments, generally.— You say Mr. Daniels eaict, there would be ''lu sousand Folkes at 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 sec whether the thrust is at the ideating 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 net Mr. Daniels' politics that the Editor of the Watchman is quarrelling with, hut delights himseff in mocking Mr. Daniels because he dou't speak as good English as the Editor. The Germans understand here, pretty ger.r ally, that the Editor is the mocker of their German brethren, and it will be cube as likely to damage the prospects of the party which keeps the mocking Editor in the front of its forces, as that silly skull story that is heralded ail through the country will damage the prospects of Col. Curtin. Put tu sousand Folkes, and the skul! story together, and see if they mate. Oh consistent Smithy, if you felt so much sympathy for the Germans cease to mock them. The nest argument of Mr- Barnhart, to prove tiie meeting a fizzle, is drawn from the eirejani stances of the cidz"E.s of Stormstown, at wb.eh he manifests great concern.— '•Stormstown owns two kettle Drums undone fife. Wei!, what of that, you say that is de scribing the meeting. Why Mr. Barnhart, we have some military spirit here, and how could it be otherwise, when your candidate for the Assembly lives here, and is a miiitf.ry man all oyer; aud how couid we do vrithon 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, and cannot publish to the wirld 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 pre.s ence of "bare beaded, dirty and ragged chil dren," which he speaks of. Now Mr. Barn hart, if you had been in the South, those jai ler Girl-S; you speak oi, being associated on that day with tho white children, (which, by the way, is as false as the other statesment 8 you have made,) wou'd riot have offended your refined tastes ; the familiarity of Capi tal with Labor, must have softened your prejudices somewhat. But then you say you were describing a Political meeting in a Democratic Paper. I say not—it was ttie persons there, the ragged ones, duty, bare beaded 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," &e. Now did he say eo, bay Smith", did ho ? if he did not, then, that ia what we call a lie. I say he did not, but suppose he 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 be 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-writing 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 all, as we can't own labor, but the parents of these bare headed, bare footed and dir'y children do, and soma of the " tu sousand" kind, and clerks, if the name is not objectionable to the editors of the Watchman, in place of counter hoppers. But Mr. Barnhart, the gentleman for whom your sympathies have become so much enlisted eo recently, had to come in for a share of personal abuse. For what? We are told in ordtr that the meeting might be de scribed ; but tbon your sympaties were not aroused; What do you say in tbat article of McWiiliams' ? " 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 ynu an anecdote about a very wicked Scotch man but 1 have forgotten it." Now will your rxoellency say this is true? Come now, bo honest. Was it necessary to publish that lie to describe the meeting at Stormstown ? Now I say that is a3 false as the other state ments made. You had no tears to shed for Mr. McVYilliams then, and your weeping eyes could be dried without trouble. I pre sume as tfioso tears may have been crocodile tears. Now don't lay Mr. McWiiliams'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 th.nk I can guess ; but you are mistaken in the man. But the editor says in his second article, •' Adam the law maker arrived, and by Tuesday evening he had fix ed in his mind that he would be tbe next Prothonotary for Centre Co." Now, friend Barrihart, I suppose you must havo been dreaming over your own defeat for that of fice, as Adam never had any aspirations in tbat direction. I think that Mr. Weaver, by the help of one Sum, made the landing that time, but supposed the thing was forgot ten. And now, my excellent friend, in the hour of your unparalled prospetity don't for get that things change a little, end capital may not own iabor. Iu conclusion we would advise you to drop tbat dog story about Col. Curtin, for we live in a land where dogs bite and there ia some danger, if the thing is kept up, of one of your candidates being bitten. THE YOUNG MAN IJaltmocn Sept.. 1860. jFor the Centre Democrat. The Whig party in 1840. in National Con vention, nominated Gen. Harrison for Pres ident, and John Tyler for Vice 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 arty of the issues involved in the contest, a committee was appointed to take charge of his correspondence, who pro claimed to the American pieopla " that he hud no principles for tho public eye." In that campaign this was the text of ail Dem ocratic speakers who wore not sparing of their denunciations of the Whig party as tho " uo piinciple .party," and charged tbein with keeping their principles opt of view for the purpose of deceiving the people. And they most certainly did succeed by accommo dating thcaiS' ives to the v rsified views, feel ings ar d intercs:B of different localities and sections of the country. But they " paid dour for the whistle," Never was a lesson taught more severe, nor a punishment more richly deserved, than the party received from John Tyler its bis administration of the gov ernment. But what Democrat, in that dv, expect ed, or had tho remotest idea, that ever the time-honored party of Jefierson, the father of Democracy, would become so demoralized as to be found struggling for existence against the power of at: administration of its own creadoa. Strange and unexpected as such a spectacle may be, yet we hu7e it now pre sented to our view. The vital principle of Democracy, that the peouie are sovereign, capable of self-government, is ignored by that portion of the Democratic party now un der the lead of Jus Buchanan,Yancey, Dhoti, Orr, and oiher di-uoiouists of the South who are supporting Breckinridge and Lane. Not only wou'd they withhold from the people of the Tetritories the right to govern tnem eelves, but they refuse to submit to the voiee of tho people as expressed by their Reprc tatiyes in National Convention, because a majority of the party, by their Represenia tives, refuse to abandon principles to which it is solemnly pledged, and adopt others that are hoisted to the viovrs 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, ana in the event of being defeated and disgraced, they 'lssue that none shall escape untarnished And hence, with that independence that on ly belongs to bold offenders, they ask those who adhere to the political creed they have abandoned for the time being, to lay aside principles and join them in supporting men for office who have " r.o principles for the public eye," but privately are " ail things unto all men." A comfortable position, tru ly, fur honest men. Mr. Biair, who has been bargaining for the Eenate for several years past, and now considers he has the nomination for the next term secured, if Dr. Foster or Sheriff Hall don't interfere to dis turb it, may cry fusion, and proscribe those who have the honesty to resist it. Yes, he may recommend the Ctessoi bargain as more open and dignified than his recent ar range-merit which he thinks secures to him the Senatorial nomination. But it is to be feared that both will terminate in disgrace to him and ail concerned in tbe unholy trans actions. We have a very beautiful illustration of how tiie fusion scheme works in the case of Gen. Foster. lie is reported as having made a strong Popular Sovereignty speech late.y at Somerset. The Pcnnsy'vinian, a dis union and Breekinridge paper, says that Gen. Foster was in the city and was inter rogated aa 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 be has been the supporter of the Administration at Washington, and the measures that have distracted and disgraced the Democratic party. Now he is fur Dou glas and non-intervention, or for Breckin ridge sad intervention, as it may suit the person to whom he talks. Is this Democrat cy ? Surely not 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 con fiicts," and put in its old mortality, these Southern disunionists, and Northern parasites, would be denounced in language that would make them tiemble like Felix when Paul reasoned of temperance, right eousness and judgment to come. Fusion! Yes, fusion, and "no good D J g!as man can oppose fusion," says Blair, the celebrated political cotractor, vtnd fusion, reiterate the hightened and dignified Eiitors of the Democratic Watchman, and fearing that honest supporters of Douglas would not have discernment sufficient to detect the in auujagency and wickedness of fusion, th<y pubffhed the following, which I take from k tbeir issue of the 28th of August:— "Mr. Douglas is traversing the country* especially in the North and East, dosing out the panacea of "squatter sovereignty" as a remedy for all our ills appealing to the "high er law," and endeavoring, 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 object was to take the question of slavery out of the halls of Congress ; and yet during his whole Ad ministration he has kept up the slavery agi tation with a persistency and fiereentss amounting almost to insanity. It has cans" ed him to neglect every o>her duty in Con gress except the defence of his consistency arid the advocacy of his views in regard to slavery, lie has been remarkable for his fa cility in dodging votes, and wnen he did vote for his votes with the Republicans.— With that party not only did he vote on the Leeomprou question, but on innst incidental questions, in total inconsistency with his for mer votes.' The friends of the "Little Giant" should thank the Editors of the Watchman for ma king it known that he voted against the Le cooipton Swindle. About 3000 democratic voters of this Congressional District, esoies sed thejr disapprobation of Allison White's vote on that question, in away that he felt and understood. And I presume they are ready to let Gen. Fleming know thaf'strad iing the crack" won't save him. They will expect an open and candid avovral of his sens timenta. If Lycoming ia 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 have hypocrites enough of our own, without having any saddled up on us from abroad. We expect her to sup ply us every ten years with a Cen-us taker, for that we will not require more than the ordinary abilities of a good accountant.— But for Congress and the Senate, wa do in sist on you to give us you: best men—men wfco have principles for the public eye. If Gen. Fleming adheres to the doctrine 'f the Kansas and Nebraska bill, as he and all other democrats understood it in 183G, and is opposed to fusion with bolters and seced >rs from the regular organization, let us know it, speak out General, and theu we can sup port you and maintain our manhood and seif -pcct. Mote 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. Curtin on the stump, we. in common with others, thought that his po sition would speedily be difltud. We were mistaken. On the tiTch ult., Mr. Foster made 1 speech in Somerset, .n which be t. ok the ground " that Congress had no right to legislate for the Territories on the suhj ct of Slavery," etc. This epeocli was reported to .Forney?® Press, asad was very satisfactory to 'he Dou glas men. A few days after, Mr. Foster be ing in Philadelphia, found himself at lng gerhoads'v-ith the administration men there; upon which he deniid the c< rectum of his Son erset speech as reported to the Press.— The Pennsylcanian came cut with the follow ing : '■ Gen. tester has arrived in this city, and we find, upon inquiry, that, just as we er. pected, the statements of the ietter ttrp utter ly destitute of truth, no st c i remarks having been made by him. either there or elsewhere.' The Press, in reply, proved the correctness of its report, and after administering a little advice to Mr. Foster, requests him to define his position, aud concludes ita article with the following; " The earnest friends of Judge Douglas, however they may deplore Gen. Foster's weakness in constantly consulting with the enemies of that illustrious statesirs an. g'adly greeted his Somerset speech in favor of tie great p; inciple of self G ivernmeut; and they stood, and stand, beady to vote for him on that at jwal. But there must be no marked cards, no loaded dice, in this great game.— Gin. Foster cannot run on two platforms He cannot teak a speech in Somerset and disavow it in Philadelphia, fie cannot get the tens of thousands of votes of the Douglas by catering for the contemptible Breckinridge 'minority. His silence aright have carried him through ; but when he will talk it must not he 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. Fo-ter sod the manly course of A. G. Ourtin.- We do 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 Yeiletie. The Locofocos are pediing round a viia | slander on Col. OURTIN, in which they al- j lege that he once spoke of the Germans as j ''double skulled Dutch." Notwithstanding j this thing has b? a n winned home to them by j a public statement made by a German c ienr, j of Mr. Cut-tin's, who says the phrase WHS j used by him (the German) in Curtin's oflico, i and in reterencs to another with whom he had a law suit: we say thc.t although this lie \ has been t.aiied, Locofocos are still bandy- | ing it about to present any German who may ! find it to the inte*st of the laboring classes to do so, from voting for ANDREW G. CUR- \ TIN. These won'dim, at election times, the! special friends of the Germans, had better j dtop such insinuations. Mr. FOSTER is just j as guilty of "slandering the Dutch" tn cooi | blood as anybody and a little more so. j If it were worth w.iile, we might refer to what we bays heard of bis sneering at our ; German friends, as, in his "Sunday morning dishabille,'i he viewed-them entering ikeir church just opposite. In short, if. Foster's j friends don't want a Volume of vich expos- 1 urea made about his private affairs and pen | cuniary transactions, (.the proof of which is j all on hand,) they had better stop slandering Curtin. We iccw no one dwelling, in a more tender gjass-bousa than Foster.— Grecnsburg , Jfmld. i A Rumored Political Bargain. The Philadelphia Evening Bulletin saya that an arrangement was consummated a night or 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' lisites and Breckinridgers held a meeting and perfected the terms of the sale, They are as follows : —The Hell and Everette city tick et is to be supported, both branches ol 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. j Fuller, the Bell and Everett candidate lor the same position, is to be supported by the fusionists. In return for all this the Bell and Evt-retters are to support (Jen. Foster for Govenor, and also the regular Democrat ic nomineesf >r Congress in the First. Third, Fourth and Fifth Districts. The Presiden tial question is to be left open until after the second Tuesday in October. Tots is a very nice arrangement; but we hardly think it will amonnt to much. What ever ieade s tnay do, voters will not permit themsolves to b3 sold like cattle, it tbey have any manhood left. MEETING AT PS-EASANT 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 j 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 Hon. Andrew Gregg, President.
