family bringing a supply of refreshments
for the pic-nic which our entertainers
proposed sharing with us. "We were
soon packed as close as we could sit, in
large double wagons, some carrying be
tween thirty anfl forty. Starting off, we
passed through the principal streets, sing
ing "Come join our Celebration," at the
top of our voices. We were soon out
on the open rolling prairie, surrounded
by rich fields of waving grain, the view-
occasionally relieved by a small grove of
locust trees. I wish I could convey to
your mind an idea of the beauty of the
country now spread out before ns in eve
ry direction. The land is not a dead
level, but rises in regular swells, as tho'
this had once been a vast ocean of liquid
earth, which a mighty tempest Lad lash
ed into huge swelling waves, when the
Almighty had suddenly congealed it,
leaving a most beautiful combination of
j little hills and vallies. For most of the
j way there was not a tree to be seen but
had been planted by the hand of man..
About fifty teams formed the proces
sion when we arrived at the place desig
nated. It was a grove of small locusts,
where a stand had been erected for the
speakers, and seats prepared for the mul
titude. Though they looked very pretty,
the trees were too- small to afford much
shelter from the rays of tle sun. The
number of people assembled was proba
bly between fifteen hundred and two
thousand. The exercises in the forenoon
were, a prayer, and an oration, with sing
ing appropriate to the day. We then
formed in procession and marched a short
distance to an adjoining grove, where the
dainties prepared by thoughtful ma'mas
had been spread on long tables. Every
thing was in apple-pie order, and the
morning's ride having sharpened our aj -petites,
we went into business in earnest
After laying in enough of the plenty
spread beftrj us to keep our digestives
hard at work for the remainder of the
day, we again formed in procession and
returned to the stand. The afternoon
exercises were an address and singing
by the children.
George. Washington having been re
ferred to in the address, as a boy w ho
never swerved from the truth, a gentle
man at the conclusion of the exercises
offered as a sentiment: '-George Wash

then offered and cheered with a hearty

Before returning to their homes, the

regretted very much that it could pot
have been done, as there were people
present from all parts of the Union as
well as from Canada and the Old World,
and it would have been interesting to
have ascertained what States and coun

from each.

a good deal scandalized by the di $covery
that 20,138 had been spent in "altering

seem monstrous, even for a gold country

gave birth to a calf which had two mouths

Saratoga, N. Y Monday evening, at
which 2000 persons were present.
Judge Bockes presided, and made an el
oquent speech. He was followed by Mr.
Van Wagoner. Per contra, a Buchan
an meeting was announced in M.orrisania
on Monday evening, with John Van Bu
ren, Capt. Bynders, and other Buchanan
magnates as speakers, of which the Eve
ning Post says;
"At the appointed hour only a few
men and a number of ragged boys were
assembled. The band was ordered to
strike up a livelier tune, the cannon thun
dered louder than ever, but to the dismay
of the Buchaniers, no audience appear

At last some ingenious spirit suggested
the lighting of bonfires as a means of
attracting a crowd, and to the general
joy the rtw succeeded. The bells soon
sounded the alarm of fire, aud the fire

But finding no flames to extinguish, they

The Washington co rrespondent of the
New York Evening Post says :
"The National Democratic Committee,
consisting of five persons, of whom C. J.
Faulkner of Virginia is chairman, have
voted, in caucus, with the Democratic
members of the House and Senate, to
exclude Massachusetts from Ler propor
tion of the avaUnche of Buchaaan pub
lications with which they are now inun
dating all the other States. The reason
for this especial favor, or slight, is, that
Massachusetts is too hopeless a State to
pay for tlie trouble of trying to convert
her. Yet the Massachusetts custom
house officers contribute their full share
to raise the $100,000 or $200,000 which
the Buchanan committee "are here ex

fig" The New York Mirror, which it
is well known is conservative even to ul-
traism in its sentiments, which has given
no countenance to slavery agitation, and
which has recently hoisted the flag of
Fremont and Dayton, thus speaks of the
Republican platform :
'We regard the Fremont platform as
safe and conservative ; if not perfectly
unobjectionable, at least unaggressive ;
a.idas moderate and cautious in substance
and in spirit as could have been expect
ed from the violence and persecuting
temper which has called it into being,
and invigorated it with the breath of life.
Fairly considered, it is defensive, not ag
gressive in its character, because it op
poses the propagandists of slav ery ; na
tional, not sectional, because it invites all,
without distinction of party, to resist a
demoralizing and corrupt policy j conserv
ative not radical, because it favors the
principles of Washington and Jefferson,
and the fathers of the Republic, as against
the recently developed dogmas of a school
of tyrranical, exacting and skull-brcakiug
Washington, July 25. The jury in
the Herbert case, after retiring for three
quarters of an hour, returned a verdict
of acquittal. The announcement was re
ceived with manifestations of joy and de
light, and Mr. H. was immediately sur
rounded by his friends, who accompanied
him to the Ivirwood House.-
CJ. G. Kelson w rites the following
note to the New York Times :
"In the Morning Express of Saturday,
Mr. Brooks asserts that Col. Fremont
received his education in a Roman Cath
olic Institute in Charleston, S. C, under
the late Bishop England. Although op
posed to the party which nominated Lim
in justice to himself and the memory
of his mother I brand those assertions
as utterly false from beginning to end.
Born in Charleston, I have kn)wn Lim
from my earliest days. He was my school
mate for many years. I was a member
of the same Sunday School class with
him; and while he was a member of the
Junior Class, Charleston College, he was
my most intimate friend. I was standing

........ u a jc e.ci i mm wuea lie was

Uhurch, by the Bishop of South CarolL
na. I can vouch that he never Lad Lis
foot inside of the Catholic Institute s;oken
of; and I am sure he never spoke 1o Bish
op England in LU life. He was born a
Protestant, educated a Protestant, and
has more of a Protestant principle about
him than the editor of the Exprett or the
proscriptive party he represent."
Recent accounts from Washington add
confirmation to the report that the Dem
ocratic managers are building their hopes
on the defeat of an election before the
people and by the House, in which event
Breckinridge would become the acting
President on the fourth of March next.
The New York Evening Post Eays :
aTo make Mr. Breckinridge President
by the vote of the Senate ; to defeat the
popular choice ; to take from the popular j
branch of Congress a constitutional pre
rogative, and transfer it to the Senate
these are the plans which are just now
said to engross the whole ingenuity of
the pro-slavery leaders. This is the
co summation towards which Mr. Fill
more and his friends are laboring, some
ignorantly and some designedly, with all
their miplit.
Deeply" as we should deplore such a
result, we Lave no commiseration for
Mr. Buchanan. His subservience to the
South, and his faithlessness to all his po
litical convictions, time and again, enti
tle him to no better fate. The man who.
in Lis position and at Lis years, would
make Limself the organ of the barbarous
creed proclaimed at Cincinnati, deserves
to be betrayed."
3T The Old Lins Americans of Wards
1 and d held a meeting on Tuesday, in
Hersey Hall, preliminary to the forma
tion of a Fillmore and Donelson Club.
The meeting was well attended, and brief
addresses were made by several persons
of more or less distinction. A committee
of five from each of the two Wards was
chosen to select and report officers on
Tuesday evening next, for a permanent
organization of tlie Club.
The New York Herald says :
"We receive at this office sixty-five po
litical newspapers from the State of Penn
sylvania, published there. These are di
vided between the three leading political
parties in the following proportions:
For Buchanan there are twenty-one, with
a circulation of 40,900; fr Fillmore
there are three, witha circulation of 1700;
while for Fremont there are forty-one,
with a circulation of 82,512. Who will
