In oar paper of last week we publish ed the ticket of the Union Mass County Convention, and for lack of time briefly observed that " it was anything but a Union Convention." A more extended notice of the Convention, its ticket, and our purpose, past and present, in relation thereto, seems to be demanded by events w hit-h have transpired since the Mass Convention was held. It will be recollected that after the call was published for the meeting of the Re publican Convention, which was held on the 5th of July, a paper was put in cir culation calling the Mass Union Conven tion. That paper in express words called " the people of Orleans County without regard to past political differences or di visions, who are opposed to the repeal of the Missouri Compromise, to the policy of the present administration," &c., to meet at Irasburgb on the 13th inst., ufor the purpose of nominating a candi- date for Senator and Couxtt Offi cers, Arc A majority of the names on that paper were of men who belong to the American, or Know Nothing, party. T . . ... stands this week in our paper at tlte head ot tue latter t.eket. It was signed by him who acted as chairman of the meet ing held last Tuesday, and by thoMj of thoe who were appointed on tlx Com mam of tkat meeting. The Korth Union in good faith said, the it U signed by mm who have heretofore acted with all the different political partfc ; l-..- ,,,' .fsnea t,y ail the persons who, on vention has been discarded by tW who Tuesday Last, were nominated on the ex-' "ot it un ., 7 0 - v ArrszXTr " x e o.. of tte a.lKta for Judjc .nd I lave ,o L 2 i " hand-wrmng of the candidate whose name it invoked " ibe people to come together and decide for themselves who shall be their candidates." - The people met, the Union says, to the number of about one i thousand, though we think the estimate j too large by about one half. The Con- vention was called to order by the present American candidate for Senator. On motion of the candidate of the latter par ty for State's Attorney, a committee to nominate officers of the Convention was appointed, and the present County Clerk was of the Committee who reported the resolutions of that Convention. "We signed the call for that Convention "and were disposed in good faith to snpjxtrt its ticket, as a union ticket, a compromise ticket, a people's ticket, a tiekertnade up " from principle," and without regard to past political differences or divisions." There were four candidates who were of the American party and three who were uot. We thought it a liberal concession to the American party to w hich we have hitherto belonged. Its basis seemed to be a disregard of " past political differ ences," and we think it would have been acquiesced in by the people, by the mass, but for the aspiring ambition of " politi cal demagogues," who . tsti sraa ffroan For the public good and menu their cum." Why docs the American party, why especially do those Americans who sign ed the call for the Mass Convention, and participated in its proceedings, bolt the ticket of tLat Ctiiventiou, repudiate its . proceedings, and rally a distinct party 'caucus, and nominate a distinct party ticket if their faith was an honest faith ; if their profession was a truthful profes-j sion, when they signed the call for the j Mass Convention and acted Jherein?; j Their action in the Mass Convention! when i'3 nominations were announced, and their subsequent proceedings which we this day publish, constrain us to dis trust their original fidelity to their pub lished profession, or rather we are there by assured of their lack in that particu lar. Now,4hey profess to be Fremont and Dayton men. For their country's sake God grant they may prove so ! But what better guaranty have we for this profession than the other ? What better security that, when the time for trial comes, their votes will not be cast for Fillmore and Donelson, the candidates of their party, instead of Fremont and Dayton, the candidates of the mass? We cannot but distrust them. In the Mass Convention "vaulting ambition o'erleaped itself" the secret purpose of the Americans to control all, and have all, was defeated, and we see in this dav's paper the consequence of secret persona! ! ana party Uisanrointmpnr . men lint cprrp tlioii i.u . i 11 ""u .

Thy God's, and truth's ,- then if thou iall'st, Thou fiill'st a biessed martyr." Had this been the spirit of the men whose recent action we are now discussing, we should not be under the disagreeable ne cessity of publishing to day, under their authority, the evidence of their recreancy to their own professions. We regard their action as disturbing the peace, the union, and harmony of the Mass Convention ; as breaking up and destroying every hope ard prospect of electing the ticket there nominated ; and so regarding it we see no other course consistent for us but to withhold the tick et of that Convention from our columns. People's Academy We would call attention to the advertisement of the " People's Academy" in another column. It is an excellent institution -, has a com petent board of teachers, and is situated in as delightful a region of country as the State can boast Let those who must quit their own county schools to go abroad, try this academy, and v. c doubt not they will be satir-fied.

Mr. Editor : Much has been said about the Mass Convention of the Demo cratic party to be held at Barton, and of the talented speakers to be there and the truthslo be promulgated, that I expected, as a matter of course, a thousand or some thing near it, would be present. But sir, there were not one hundred Democrats in the house to hear the speaking and do the voting, for I counted every one, and it amounted to just eighty-six. There might have been twenty standing about, beside, at least, twenty of whom belonged to other parties, perhaps more. Now, sir, if I was disappointed in the number, I was equally so in their speakers, or rather in the speeches made by them, for they were made up of any amount of as sertion, vitiperation, and coarse, and some times vulgar anecdotes, which generally "brought down the house," and some such slang phrases as "Black Republican," "Nigger-worshipers," Natural fool Soci eties, etc., etc, wtnie the remarks made that they would call arguments, werg a review of the differences between the Old Line Whigs and Democrats, in former campaigns, with an effort to shirk the re sponsibility of the present disasterous af fairs of the nation, upon the Republicans, &C, and lauding the present administra tion very highly, and commending Presi dent Pierce for the course he has taken in the Kansas outrages. The first speak er, (Mr. Potts) asked, What could he have done ? Could he stop the outrages at the polls, unless Gov. Reeder inform ed him that there would be trouble at the first election ?" and it was also said by several that day, that for four weeks past no account of trouble had been received from Kansas, Now, sir, here is an in terim from the time the Missourians first bullied the bogus legislature into office, to the last four weeks, that not a word was said about their beloved Presilent's inactivity, nor they dare not. The sec ond speaker, (Mr. Rand) said what the whole party have denied : that the foun dation rock upon which the pure Democ racy stood was the institution of slavery. That is true, and the only inference that can possibly be drawn from his state ments. The following are his state ments : " We are directly opposed to the Republican platform ;" again, " The old line whigs have now joined with the ab olitionists, and if they hold on they will stand as long as the constitution, provi ding they succeed, for when slavery is abolished the constitution falls. There, sir, if that is not owning that slavery is Hhn fnnnJn 1- 1. , i "-" vuuuanu umuu mcii resis aemrwv T , , JW..T, tro WHICU. J. b bUUW T liiAL CISC 11 is. JSo wonJer they wish for the exten sion of the u Divine institution," that they may continue to get rich with the spoils from the public treasury, for they feel assured that if the North should get an equal share in the representation in Congress, in proportion to the population, with the South, they would stand but a poor chance to get the " loaves and fishes," hence they go for the doctrine that " might makes right," and against agitation ; that the power that supports them :he slave power may glut its capacious maw with millions of square miles of territory once devoted to the goddess of liberty, but now thrown open by the assistance of northern democrats who have betrayed their trust, and pandered to the avarice of the southern sectional faction ; to the perpetuation and extension of slavery, that spot which defaces our otherwise beautiful escutcheon. Their harmony and consistency of ar gument as displayed at Barton, was de lightful, and of a piece with all their do ings. Mr. Rand says, Gentlemen, we do not go for measures, but for princi ples, but our opponents go for measures." The third speaker, (Mr. Bowdisb) said " Gentlemen, we wish them (the Repub licans) to understand that we d not seek for the offices or anything else of the kind, but it is for measures we ea " " When doctors disagree who shall de cide?" They had a red hot Democrat from New Hampshire, (an expelled mem ber of the Know Nothings) to denounce Know Nothingism, Republicanism, &c who said that we and the republicans would start equally in that state to get the majority in their election, and to get 2,500 to make a majority they would each have to do their best to obtain them from that class that were unstable or fluc tuating in their politics." He by this re mark considered New Hampshire doubt ful, but strange to say be made a leap and said they no doubt would get many from the ranks of the Know Nothings, "and finally, gentlemen," bays he, we shall- give 3000 majority for Buck and Breck." - m Something was said of the two candi dates Buchanan and Fremont the for mer was without spot or blemish and uni versally known, while the latter u hardly known, as one speaker said, and j men went on to tell for what he was known, which amounted to more than he said of Buchanan himself. The rent of the speaking was made up of the usu al clip-trap about tht Mi;;ouri Cm. promise," Jansas Nebraska bill," Doug las' Paciflhation Bill," ith eonsid erable twatje about their mother's leav ing sop in She frying pan, "Raw head " little boys in bed," "Puppies' ars,tail" and such balder dash, that tosay the least is a disgrace to a man of as .nuch apparent ability as one of the speakers. If that vention was a fair specimen of what the slavery estensionists can do for Buchanai.he may be assured that he will be elected by a grand majority, to private life ia November nest. ERITAS. Glover, August IS, 1S56. For the Independent Standard. The Clovei Foot Sticking Out!! Mr. EDitrc: On Tuesday last the Know Nothings met at Coventry in a sort of County Caucus, secretly got up af ter they fourS the democrats and repub licans were nt going to unite, and voted to draw back rom their Union Mass Con vention, and iirow off every man nomi nated in that Convention who is not a Know Nothing, and fill their places with Simon Pure's So they have got up a regular boilev down Know Nothing tick et from head to tail, and stand on the same ground as last year. The same Know Nothings who signed the call for the Mass Convention, and who were non inated for County Officers by that Con vention wire the wire workers and getters up of tb Caucus at Coventry, and all hands w:nt unanimously for the Coven try tieki. They voted to rally the lodges, get out the dark lantherns, tighten the trammts on such as kick, read the oaths ever afiin ta any that have a conscience ; threat the mutineers ; promise a sop or tit to sich as are very hungry, and have no meas of their own to act on, or live by, till the woman that the Pope, that great fcast full of eyes before and be hind, wth seven heads and ten horns, and a ail like the sea serpent is on the marchand close to the line of Orleans Count- with thunder, and lightning, and brimsone, and two or three earthquakes in hi. train ; and every ene of his seven mouhs roaring as if it were the voice of a ttousand bulls of Bashan, and to tell thf Republicans that the Know Nothings ac all going for Fremont and Dayton if tley will only help to prevent the Pope fwm swallowing them all before election at a gulp. Now then let's just salt the KnowNoth- iigs down on the 1st Tuesday in Sept. and see if "Salt wont save them." It nay be necessary to salt them at the head ii Salt river. We can do it. Say the word and the wool flies. JAKE. . For tha Standard Tne Dark Lanthern Ticket. About the first of July a call was is sued for a Mass Convention at Irasburgb. to nominate county officers the 13th of August. The time came and a nomina. tion was made with three names on the list that did not belong to the order, but this was no go. Old Esquire Rowell must be thrown overboard and Judge Durkee Cole restored to the ticket, so the dark lanthern threw its sombre hues into different parts of the county. A con vention at Coventry is announced to fix -t' "jci vi me loin. Anis con vention eomes off on the 19th, and a few dark lanthern bearers assemble. Strike out the Senator of the 13th, Wm. B. Cole, and insert one of the largest sized dark lanthern men, and Esquire Rowell is discharged, and Judge Durkee Cole, a relialle man to do certain things, is bro't on to the ticket, making it merely a dark lanthern ticket and nothing else. The manner of changing nominations made by the masses, should be by the masses, but the people think Missisquoi valley should be considered in making up the ticket, and that J udge Cole's claims are no better than Judge Kellam's. But Judge Kellam is not so reliable for par- ucmar purposes as Judge Cole. If there was ever an occasion to raise the cry of proscription and combination of secret influences and dictation, it is in this transaction, and if the people are not worse than priest-ridden by the dark lan thern operators, they- will arise in their strength and put down this foul play, and teach the present official incumbents' that their services are no longer required, but that such men as Elijah Cleveland,' F. S. F rench and Wm. J. Hastings, can attend to the business. For tbe Independent Standard. Ma. Editor : A great national party. organized and known throughout the country as the republican party, exists it has, or soon will have, an doctoral ticket in every free stale, and several of the ilave states, in the Union. It i8 pro gressive, and overshadows now, all other parties, cliques, clans, and cabala in the country tve the great and formidable rival, the democratic party. It l,ag a sound and rational platform on which the conservative men of the north and th ultra abolitioniu have wet, as on a mid- uie ground, heedless of the past and Lar moniously toiling for tbe future. Its or ganization and its developement sprung from the exigence of the times and were the work of great and patriotic bands. It is composed of the uprisen masses, whether they were before now democrats, whigs, americans, abolitionists, protest ants or catholics, foreigners, or "to the manor born." Elsewhere the limes are prolific of great accessions to its ranks. East. West. North, on every one oi me circles its fires are litghted, on highland and lowland its banners floatin the breeze ; from valley to valley, and from peak to peak its shouts resound, and Jura answers from her misty cloud, Back to the joyon Alps again and cry aloud!" The Central Comnnltee of this party at Washington recommended to the peo ple of the different states, counties, and towns, to organize republican parties in their several localities auxiliary to tbe national party. This recommendation has been generally acceded to ; it was so in this county, for liberal, patriotic, and unselfish purposes, notwithstanding earn est effort in certain quarters to suppress its call and propagate the idea that its meeting for organization would not be held. It was held, and has put forth a nomination for county officers of men good, fit, and true. These men stand forth as the representations of the party, personifying its principles and not as the spawn of any nameless and betero gene convention. They represent a party whose foremost avowal is the advocacy of free speech, a free press, and free men, and whose principles have been recently baptized in the blood of more or less of its victims. Shall this party have " aid and com fort," encouragement aad accession, in the b ounty ot Urleans i Can you sup port that party in the country at large, and in the State, and yet oppose its ae tion in counties and towns ? "Oaks from acorns grow." Aggregate from minute parts are combined. How can you have a national, or state republican party, if its germs are not planted and nurteredin smaller communities like counties and towns : xt tuey are planted among thorns how can you have vigorous growth if thorns are permitted to spring up and choke them ? Defer beyond this oppor tune season the establishment of the re publican party in this county, and where, here, will the advent of that party be r "Go thy way this time, when I have a convenient season I will call for thee," has been the response of some who ad vocate a "people's convention," or rather some who were opposed to any local re. publican movement. But when is that convenient season to be ? There's the rub ! Is it when rains shall have de scended, and the floods have come, and the winds have blown, and beat upon our house and it has fallen? When the democratic party, by reason of our alif n ation from the republican ranks, shall be firmly re-established in power ? When slavery shall stride over Kansas and tbe continent, and we shall sit under our vines and fig trees with a few to "molest us and make all afraid? Shall the re publican party be ignored in the county of Orleans by men who are republican in principle, and for the purpose merely of affording a triumph to men ? The ban ner of that party is broad enough to cast its shadow over all its disciples. If the americans are truly republican in princl pie, and in good faith mean to support t remont and Dayton, and the republican cause, they will follow the ark of the cov enant, and cling around the altars of tbe republican party. But are not some of them attempting divisions from there- publican ranks, aiming to get up a secret nomination of a county ticket of their own exclusive party, on the ground of last year's canvass ? This is said to be a fact. Let the republicans then be on the look outlet them "beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheeps clothing, out inwardly they areT-avening wolves." If, like the border ruffians in Missouri, they endeavor to impede us in our pilgrim age to the plains of freedom, let us battle for the right of way with strong arms and stout hearts.

A terrible storm occurred in this vicinity on Sunday, which listed all day, and also all day on Monday. Its effects, however, were most disastrous at Last Island, a great summer resort, and which our accounts represent to have been entirely inundated. " Every building on the islana is saw 10 naic been swept away, and no less than one hundred and thirty-seven lives are re ported lost. The steamer Star, Utpt. ftnutn, wnicn left here on the 9th, encountered the storm before reaching Last Island, and became perfectly unmanagable, and was soon af terwards a perfect wreck. The scene among the passengers was terrific, there being no less than 250 per sons clinging to the wfecked fragments of the vessel, each anxiously waiting the arrival of some other vessel to take them off. Whether any of this company have been lost is not yet known, though hopes are entertained that all were saved, as a steamer is understood to have gone to their relief. Couillon Island has been submerged, but the accounts from thence are very meagre. It is reported, however, that an immense amount of property and many lives have been lost. The ships Bowditch and Ellerslie, also the Brig Creole, which were lying near the mouth of the river, have all been se riously damaged by the storm. On the lake and river we also hearof numerous steamboats, flatboats, and other craft beinjr iniured. Nearly all the wharves at the watering places have been inundated, and the buildings thereon, bath-houses, etc., swept away. Altogether, the loss of property must be very heavy, but it is impossible now to calculate the amount. The crops, it is feared, have also suffer ed severely. The steamship Philadelphia, just ar rived from New York via Havana, cs caped.the storm, and is now lying safely at quarantine, with all well on board. New Orleans, Aug. 15. Accounts from Last Island verifythe sad story of yesterday, It has been positively ascer tained that 188 persons have been lost. It is feared that Grand Cauillon Is land, another watering place, h as also been submerged, and that many lives lost as well as property destroyed. The corn, cotton and sugar crops have been incalculably injured. The steamers Nautilus and Perseverr ance are several days overdue, and it is feared something has happened to them. Tha 3teanfch'p Texas has gone in search of them. The storm extended far up the river. At the Government Hosuital, Baton Rogue, fourteen inches of water fell between Sunday evening and Tues day evening. The survivors at Last Is land reached this city this morning. They estimate the loss of life at 200. 188 have already been counted as lost. Second Dispatch. Many of the sur vivors have arrived here. All from Last Island are badly wounded and bruised. The dead bodies at the Island were plun dered by a set of pirates who inhabit it. The steamer rersevearance has just ar rived, but nothing has as yet been heard from the Nautilus. The Louisiana arrived at Galveston on the 14tb, picking up on the way the cabin door of the steamer Nautilus, which ves sel, it is now supposed, was lost during the late storm. Nothing definite has yet been heard from Caillon Island, but there has un doubtedly been a great loss of life. It is .reported that thirty bodies have been found on one end of the Island. It is supposed that at least $10,000 in money in pockets fell into the hands of the pi rates on Last Island, and about $5000 worth of baggage. The loss on this is land is estimated at over $100,000. The banks of the river at Bayou Sara caved in, carrying away 300 residences, No lives were lost. Several vessels were blown ashore at the mouth of the Missis- si j pi. 1 he telegraph lines have suffered severely. The loss at Caillon Island cannot full short of $G0,000. . GT Morrill's Nashua and Boston Ex press was robbed on Monday of a pack age containing $2100 in money.
