Buchanan and Fillmore.
Perhaps of nil the little things to which des
peration has driven the K. N. organs in order to
bolster their falling fortunes tho last and most
amusing of them is being put forth to make the
.peoplebelieve that will withdraw,
to iquke room for Mr. Fillmore. What evidence
these sapient gentlemen may have, by which to
justify their counterfeit credulity we arc unable
to say, as they have not attempted to unfold it.
The figures show Mr. Buchanan’s party as
having carried every State which was claimed
for Mr. Fillmore, even the old whig States of
North Carolina and Kentucky hy majorities of
from'10 to 12000. The noblest champions of
the old whig party north and south refuse to
support Mr. Fillmore, while Evans of Maine,
Choate of Mass., Ewing of Ohio, Donaphan and
Geyer of Missouri, Pierce and I’ratt of Mary
land, Jones of Tennessee, Benjamin of Louisi
ana, and a host of others are earnestly support
ing Mr. Buchanan and the Democratic cause.—•
It would therefore no doubt bo very sensible
and prudent for Mr. Buchunun to withdraw, as
he has shown himself and his party so exceed
ingly weak. At least this is the reasoning of
some of the sap heuds who arc so much troub
led about the weakness of the Democratic party.
That party has for fifty years been urnply able
to take care of itself and will be found equally
capable of doing so in the future. Without sny
ing anything personally disrespectful to Mr.
Fillmore he has declared as was well quoted by
the “National Intelligencer” that he was no
longer a whig but the representative of “anoth
er party.” As the representative of that party
be can scarcely claim the votoB of the Democ
racy. As a whig he cannot it seems obtuin the
support of the more eminent whigs. A large
part of the K. N. party from the northern states,
headed hy Buuks, Win. F. Johnston of l’enn.,
John C. Fremont, tho Now York Californian,
Live Oak George Law, oppose him. And yet
older aud abler statesmen uro called upon to
quit the field at the behest of tho meagre clan
who wage a sort of guerrilla campaign against
the great national host who are warring with
patriotic ardor against the cohorts of fanati
cism. Everything has been overcome except
the obstinacy which defies all reason and com
mon sense. Dcsperatiou has made them mod.—
The bad principles and worse practice if possi
ble of K. N.’ism were the elements of destruc
tion which have brought it to rulu. Its munifi
cent pledges of a greater purity are remember
ed against it as the worst of its sins, hypocracy.
As it has developed more and more of its na
ture, the more decided has been tho condemna
tion of the American mind. While Mr. Fillmore
was a whig all men respected and honored him,
“why did he leave this fair and fruitful ground
to batten on that moor.”
Meetlnu on Monday Evening.— Senator Wel
ler and Calhoun Benham addressed the Democ
racy of Nevada on Monday evening in the hall
over Boswell & Hanson’s store. The room was
crowded aud many were compelled to go away,
not being able to get in. Mr. Weller is just out
of a sick bed, and his health would not permit
his speaking in the open air. His speech was
received with vociferous applause, and cannot
fail to have a powerful effect in increasing the
Democratic majority in this county. Mr. Benham
followed in a forcible and eloquent speech,
which was frequently interrupted by cheers.—
The meeting adjourned a little before eleven
o’clock.
Kktikkd.— Mr. C. B. McDonald, the talented
editor of the Sierra Citizen, has retired from the
editorial conduct of that paper. The Citizen un
der the control of Mr. McDonald Las been one
of our best country exchanges.
Polling th- Wlru.
A political billet-doux from the jesuistical lit
t) > T. W. Park of frce-negro atul Freraout noto
riety, San Francisco, lias been kindly furnished
us by a friend for perusal. If the writer is as
much mistaken in his calculations concerning
the campaign as he is with regard to the poli
tics of the gentleman to whom this letter was
addressed, it must become manifest to him that
he is “neither a prophet nor the spnof a proph
et.” The letter would at first appear an urgent
appeal to Park’s fanatical phalanx to be upon
the field early on the day of battle—to secure a
majority in the Legislature and by that means
the election of two negro-worshipers from this
State to the U. S. Senate, as one of whom, there
is “an awful squinting” in the letter, the author
would not obstinately object to being himself se
lected. It bears some of the marks of a circular
and at the same time is an affectionate and con
fidential expose of the plans of the Black-repub
licans in this their first and last contest. After
two and a half pages of closely written matter
of the above description, the following appears:
“I have eontigned to me from New York 150 pat
ent transparent ballot boxes—the price is fixed
by the patentee at $40 each—I will promptly
attend to all orders accompanied by the money."
“Ay! there’s the rub,” you ballot box vender!
Here is disclosed a pretty little speculation
cloaked beneath huge expressions of solicitude
“for our common country and California in par
ticular”—exaggerations of the past and glow
ing predictions of the future progress of frce
negro fanaticism. Your “patent transparent”
boxes arc needed doubtless in the rascally com
munity in which you, Mr. Park, have found ge
nial companions and a brisk market, but this
vicinity has not yet been corrupted, thank God.
by wire-pulling politicians of your character,
nor arc there any here who entertain a suspicion
against the integrity of our Judges and Inspec
tors of election. Besides, were there necessity
of our throwing asidf the old fashioned, simple
contrivance that has sufficed with honest people
heretofore, we would regard it very hazardous
to be purchasing “patent ballot boxes” from
you, if they were “transparent.” They were
manufactured you inform us for this “important
contest.” Knowing the solicitude you and your
fanatical confrere> feel in the result, and that you
and they are aware that if you cannot succeed
now while “Sumner suffers” and “Freedom
shrieks” that you never will, we would not be
greatly surprised to find that while manufactur
ing your “transparent bullot boxes” you likewise
manufactured inside of them a great many Crane
parent ballote. We want none of your manufac
tures now, uud “above all we” [don’t] “want
the polls at cneh precinct watched by reliable
Itepublicans” as you suggest, believing that the
fewer of your productions are employed and the
fewer of your “reliable republicans” who come
about, the less villiuny will be either attempted
or perpetrated.
“Please write me ns to preeent prospects in
your county, and whether you will see that our
came Is not neglected,” fb the phrase with which
you preface the affectionate terms “very truly
yours.” If you mean by “our cauec," the selling
of your transparent humbug boxes, “our cause”
will be wofully neglected by the Democrat
towhom you have writ ten, but if you refer to the
free-negro federalism of the day depend upon
us for merited attention to it. The “present
prospect” in this county for your party and
your class of politicians, our friend authorizes
us to say, is as gloomy as you could well im
agine. A few dull and muddy-mettled rascals,
who can view nothing sensibly and with moder
ation, comprise all your cohorts here, and none
of them have been able as yet to deceive them
selves into the belief that n single candidate of
theirs will be known to be running on election
day, much less that any one will be elected.
I’norosKn Amendment to tub Constitution.—
lly reference to the Governor’s Proclamation,
which will be found on our first pnge, it will bo
seen that the people are authorized to vote for
or against the amendment to the Constitution.
The proposed amendment, as will l»c seen by
the Proclamation, merely provides that when
ever a Convention is called to change the pres
ent Constitution, the new Constitution shall be
submitted to a vote of the people for their adop
tion or rejection. The Democratic State Con
vention recommended the Democracy of the
State to vote for the proposed amendment. In
accordance with this recommendation the Dem
ocratic tickets for this county will be printed
with the words “for the proposed anwndmeut to
the Constitution” at the bottom. Should any
person wish to vote against the amendment he
can substitute the word “against” in place of
the word “for.” It is to be hoped that the De
mocracy will vote for the amendment, in ac
cordance with the unanimous recommendation
of the Convention, ns its adoptiou will have a
tendency to do nwuy with sectional agitation
should the question of calling a Constitutional
Convention ever again be brought before the
people.
Suicide.— A man by the name of John Itytiier
hung himself on Monday morning last, in Mr.
Blasauf's stable, ou Pine street, lie had been
at work for Mr. Blasauf about a week. He got
up about five o'clock in the morning and went
out. Mr. Blasauf went into the stable about an
hour after, and found him hanging to a joice,
with a rope round his neck, and his feet touch
ing the floor. Ills hat, shoes, and a candle were
found in the loft, and it is supposed that he
went above, and tied ono end of the rope rouud
his neck, and the other end to the joice aud roll
ed off. He was quite dead when found.
The Case of Lewis. —Wo have no inclination
to get into a controversy, or to bandy words
with the Journal in regard to the feeling of the
people here about the acquittal of Geo. Lewis.
We stated last week nothing but what is strictly
true. We have thus far avoided saying any
thing in regard to the merits of this case for the
rcasou that there was much party feeling mixed
up in the matter; and we should have said noth
ing in regard to the verdict of acquittal, had
not the over zealous friendsof Lewis taken par
ticular pains to send dispatches to papers in
other sections of the State, to the effect that ev
ery body here was satisfied with the verdict.
Repubijcan Caucus. —At a township meeting
of the Republicans, held on Saturday evening
last, the following nominations were made for
township officers: For Justices of the Peace,
John Anderson and L. S. Ely: for Constable..’
J. V. Hathaway and Geo. W. Chandler
Democratic Meeting*.
One of the largest and most enthusiastic dem
ocratic meetings ever held in this county came
off at San Juan on Thursday evening last. Not
less than llftcen hundred people were on the
ground, and the enthusiasm was unbounded. —
A delegation of about forty horsemen met the
speakers at Montezuma Hill and escorted them
to San Juan. On their way in they passed
through Swcetland's and Sevastopol, at both of
which places the procession was greatly aug
mented by democrats who joined in the ranks.
The cavalcade arrived at San Juan a little after
dark, and were there met by a procession from
Cherokee who came on horseback and in an im
mense wagon drawn by eight horses, each man
carrying a torch light. A delegation of between
seventy and eighty democrats from Strawberry
liar came in about the same time, and all form
ing in line marched through the town, proceed
ed by a band of music which had been engaged
for the occasion.
The meeting was organized about seven o’-
clock, and Col. W. S. Long, of Sacramento took
the stand, and spoke about two hours and a half.
His remarks were listened to with the greatest
attention, and the frequent bursts of applause
showed that the enthusiasm of the Democracy
was at the highest pitch. Col. Loug was follow
ed by Messrs, l’almer, Hartman, and Pierce of
this county, and at twelve o’clock the meeting
adjourned by giving nine enthusiastic cheers for
j Buck and Brcck.
The same speakers addressed the citizens of
( Orleans Flat on the following evening. Not
withstanding the stormy weather, and the bad
! condition of the roads, the meeting was one of
! the largest and most enthusiastic ever held at
that place. On the same evening Mr. Anderson
addressed the Democracy of Wolscy’s Flat, and
Messrs. Chase and Caldwell spoke to a large
1 gathering of the Democracy at Washington.
Our Democratic friends in other sections of
the county may rest assured that “the ridge’’
is all right, and that the Democracy of Eureka
; and Bridgeport townships will roll up a heavy
| mrjority for Buck and Breck.
Republican Demonstration. —Messrs. Cross
j man and Avery, Black Republican candidates
for the Assembly, notified the citizens of Hum
bug City that they would address them on the
evening of the 22d inst. At the appointed
time, some thirty or forty people assembled, and
j a motion was made to appoint Mr. C. P. Jones
j chairman. Mr. Jones declined, giving ns a rca
| son that he was a Democrat. Mr. Jacobs was
I then nominated. Mr. Jacobs declined, giving
the same reason. After this a dead calm ensued
for about an hour, until they had sent a mile
and a half for Dr. Hillcrshcit to preside over the
meeting. Mr. Crossman then took the stand,
and got ofTsome twaddle about the Pacific Rail
Road nnd other republican hobbies, and sat
dowu. Not a word was said during the speech
by any of the audience; but after the meeting
adjourned, some one proposed three cheers for
Buck and llreck, which were given with a right
good will. One of the candidates then inquired,
“My God, are there no republicans here?” lie
wns told that there were plenty of republicans,
but only one black one in the place. The candi
dates started off the next morning in pursuit of
votes under difficulties.
In the little town of Grass Valley, where
there is a large foreign vote, we are assured by
a Democrat that there will not be over fifty Bu
chanan votes polled next November, while last
year Bigler received a majority of sixty.— Sac.
American.
A few minutes before the above paragraph
met our eye, we were coVersing with a gentle
man who has long resided in the “little town of
Grass Valley,” and who has every opportunity
of knowing the feeling of the citizens of that
place. lie assured us that the Democratic vote
of that place would exceed that of both the oth
er parties combiued. The statements which
have been Industriously circulated that the for
eign ttoru citizens of Grass Valley have gone
over in a body to Fremont, arc sheer fabrica
tions. Some of the most active and energetio
Democrats in the county reside in that place,
and they will not fail to give n good account of
themselves on election day.
Ciikkuinu.— We have traveled over a consid
erable portion of Nevada county during the
past week, and from every precinct we hear the
most glowing accounts of the prospects of the
Democratic cause. Every where our speakers
have been received and welcomed with the most
unbounded enthusiasm, and addressed large and
delighted assemblages. If any reliance what
ever can be placed in the statements of those
who have no object in concealing the true
strength of the three parties in the Held, the De
mocracy of Nevada county will roll up a major
ity on Tuesday next, which will astonish even
themselves. We shall be much disappointed if
the Democratic vote of this county does not ex
ceed that of both the other parties.
Sm-osBD Robbeiiy.— A man by the name of
Peter Fagan, disappeared very mysteriously,
night before last, having about $1,150 in his
possession which l>elongcd to a company of which
bo was a partner. Hagan is about twenty-one
years old, live feet seven inches high, w-eighs
HO pounds—of light complexion, auburn hair,
and Bmootli face. His front teeth project, and
are somewhat decayed. He had on when ho
left, a dark hat and coat, red elastic belt, bro
gan shoes, and a six inch Colt’s revolver. The
company offer one hundred dollars reward for
his apprehension.
Fision.— The Republicans aud Know Noth
ings of Nevada township have both nominated
John Anderson for Justice of the Peace. By
this fusion they are in hopes of beating one of
the Democratic candidates. They cannot do it.
however, for the Democrats have a clear major
ity iu the township over all the odds and ends
that oan be raked up against them.
Newspaper Change.— Mr. James O’Sullivan,
the former editor of the Sonora Iff raid, has
again taken charge of that paper. Mr. O’Sulli
van is at present the Republican nominee for
the State Senate of Tuolumne county.
Sailing ok the next Steamer.— The San Fran
cisco papers recommend that the sailing of the
next Steamers be postponed to the (ith of No
vember, so that “Steamer day” will not come
on the day of Election. By so doing it is pro
bable the result of the election in this State
would be known in New York by the first of
December.
The Pennsylvania German Vole.
The San Francisco Sun has been liamlcd u
translation of a letter written by Capl. F. W.
Rinder, of the 1st Pennsylvania Regiment du
ring the Mexican war, and at present Alderman
of the fifteenth ward of Philadelphia, to a friend
in San Francisco, which entirely annihilates all
the unfounded vauutings of the Black press in
this State relative to the German vote of Penn
sylvania. The letter says:
“If the Black Republicans, or any one else
says that the Germans of this City and State
intend voting for Fremont, tell them, it ‘smells
fishy.’ We have organized German clubs in
every ward throughout the city, making twenty
four’German clubg, numbering from three to
four hundred each, all Buchanan and Breckin
ridge clubs. Last week we had a very large
Democratic turnout; the procession contained
over thirty thousand voters, the Germans were
reported seven thousand strong, and we had a
great many transparencies with appropriate
devices of the mosr significant meanings, suita
ble to the times, all in our mother tongue, and
so far, you can set down nine tenths of the Ger
man vote in this State for Buck and Breck—let
the papers say what they may. If a Fremont
meeting is culled by a few wiseacres from our
Fatherland, no one is there but the President
and five or six others, who would like to get of
fice, or such of late arrival, since 1848, as are
misguided by fanatics. At any rate, if your
State is as sound as Pennsylvania, Buck and
Breck are certain of election.
Origin’ ok tiie Lie. —The statement about Mr.
Brcckenridgc having requested Mr. Buchanan
to withdraw was first published in the Philadel
phia Bulletin. The article was copied into the
K. N. papers of this State, notwithstanding it
was too absurd and ridiculous to lie believed by
the most stupid Fillmore man in the country;
and the editors who copied knew at the time
they were circulating a malicious falsehood.—
The Pennsylvanian has the following in regard
to the statement. After giving the article as
serting that “Brcckenridge had requested Bu
chanan to withdraw,” it says:
“We copy the above paragraph from the Phil
adelphia Bulletin of last evening. The Editor
of that paper is a member of the Christian
Church, and day after to-morrow will once more
bend his knee at the altar of God, with the pro
found self-conviction that in publishing this
paragraph he forged and uttered a deliberate,
unqualified, wholesale lie. It will be seen that
it is a clear and straight out statement, which
renders the guilt of the knave who fabricated it
all the more damning. The oath of poor Uncle
Toby, which broke from him in regard to the
dying soldier, was, we are told, wiped out by
the tear of the angel who recorded it, but a lie
like this, so cold-blooded and malignant will
stick .to the hypocrite who made it to the last
day of his life.”
Siekka County Aix Right. —The California
American sets down this county at 1200 majori
ty for Fillmore. The General is good at “brag, 1 '
as every one knows; but this time his figuring
is so absurd that the K. N.'s can’t swallow it.
Sierra county is good for five hundred major
ity in favor of James Buchanan. Any one well
acquainted with the feeling in this county will
acknowledge that this calculation is as near cor
rect as may be arrived at.
In many precincts of the county the K. N.’s
have no organisation at all. At Fine Grove,
St. Louis, and Eureka, the Presidents and Sec
retaries of their Councils are out for Buchanan,
and almost all their members. The Republican
party are takiug oil'hundreds from their ranks,
but tlie Democrats are gaining ground every day.
We can assure our friends in other counties
that they may safely reckon on Sierra county
giving a handsome majority for the Democratic
nominees. We will elect all, whether National,
State, or county nominees. Sierra is right.—
Surra Democrat.
Anticicateii Dki.vok in 1856-7.—There seems
to be a general opinion prevailing among the '
weather sages that the ensuing rainy season is
to be a severe one—amounting, in fact, almost j
to a second Deucalion flood. We are told that 1
the Indians of Klamath and Trinity—who may
be considered ‘oldest inhabitants’—anticipate an
unusually hard winter, aud are making prepar
ations accordingly. Wo are unable to conjec
ture what they found their predictions upon,
unless It lie the fact that the average quantity
of rain did not fall during the last season—the
streams in consequence were much lower, and
that the balance due must be added to that of
the coming winter. Such seems to be the rea
soning of men of science, who are perhaps no
better skilled in soothsaying in regard to the
weather than the natives. —Uumhuldl Times.
From tiik Plains.— Mr. Whnylcr passed Gal
loway’s Ranch on Tuesday last with 1,000sheep,
lie left .Santa Fe, New Mexico, on the 25 th of
June. The Indians attacked his train on the
Humboldt .aud robbed him of all his pack ani
mals, fifteen in number. As the mules were
packed at the time, the Indians made a clean
sweep of all the baggage belonging to the train.
A carpet bag containing $300 in money was on
one of the mules, and of course fell into the
hands of the thieves. Mr. Whayler started with
5,000 sheep, but lost 1,000. — Sierra Democrat.
Look out for Highwaymen. —As Thomas B.
Simpson was on his way from Sucker Flat to
Rough and Ready, on horseback, yesterday, and
about one ami a half miles from the Empire
Ranch, he was shot at by a man concealed in
the.chapparel near the road side, with a rifle,
the ball passing quite near his head, and he is
of opinion that nothing but the sudden spring
of his horse, at the flash of the rifle, saved him
from instant death. The man, with his rifle in
hand, made a hasty retreat across a rocky cafl
on, and was soon lost sight of by Mr. S., who
was unarmed, aud consequently did not deem it
prudent to follow.— MarymUe llcrald.
llow is it to bk Managed.— The Pittsburg
Post says: “The Cincinnati Gazette is owned by
a company of men who are divided in sentiment
between Fremont and Fillmore. Its tone thus
far has been that of a rabid black republican
sheet, lint last week a meeting of the numer
ous proprietors was held, and a vote taken on
the question between Fillmore and Fremont.—
The latter had but two of a majority. A com
promise was then made by which the paper is to
support Fremout up to the October election,but
is not to abuse Fillmore, If the Fillmore party
has a large vote in October auother meeting is
to be held to decide whether the paper shall not
‘roll over’ to Fillmore,
“The paper is to blackguard Buchanan and
the democracy all the time; but who it will sup
port for the last mouth of the campaign is still
in doubt.”
AFair Sayn.ic ok tiikib IIonehtv,—The fol
lowing paragraph contains a fair sample of the
honesty of Mr. Buehauau's assailants:
“Mr. Mac Gavock. of Nashville, had a curi
osity to see the letter of Gen. Jackson, from
which a quotation has been hawked about, and
he finds it infamously mutilated. Immediately
succeeding the quotation made by the Know
Nothings is the following in General Jackson's
own handwriting:
‘•Mr. Buchanan in a man of fine talents, and, if he
cornea into the Department of State, will execute the
(iiUtts with ability. 1
At a meeting of the Mountaineer Engine Co.
No. 1, the following officers were elected for the
ensuing term:
£ k^; orema "i M. Phillips, 1st Assist
(i; j*'! 1 ™ 11 '’ 2d Assistant; J. G. Smith,
Secretaryi S. A. Snow, Financial Secretary: K
Riec. Treasurer; A. p. Church, A. Alexander;
J. Rapopah. Trustees.
Demonstration ok the Sacramento Democra
cy.—We learn from the State Journal of Monday
that the Democracy of Sacramento turned out
In their majesty on Saturday evening last. It
was the largest gathering of the campaign
some two thousand persons having assembled.
It had been arranged that the meeting should
be held at the Forest Theater, and a brilliant
pyrotechnic display noted the hour of assem
bling. The Theatre was densely crowded, ev
ery seat being occupied, and the lobbies being
also completely packed with human beings.
Col. Sanders was chosen to preside on the oc
casion, and in a speech of some hours duration,
he eloquently advocated the merits of our great
and glorious cause, and riddled the opposition.
At the conclusion of his address, the people were
informed that some two or three hundred per
sons had been compelled to go away, owing to
their inability to find even standing room in the
Theatre, and a motion to adjourn to the front
of the Orleans Hotel was put and carried, with
loud huzzas for the Democracy.
The meeting having re-assemblcd on Second
street, Mr. V. E. Geiger took the stand, and
made one of the most eloquent speeches of the
campaign. His vindication of Stephen A. Doug
las from the assail' ts of the K. N. politicians of
this State was a masterly efTort, and was receiv
ed with rapturous applause.
At the conclusion of Mr. Geiger's speech, vo
ciferous calls were made for Mr. Ferguson.—
That gentleman mounted the stand, the crowd
made the welkin ring with their applause, and
during the delivery of his brilliant speech he
was continually interrupted by the deafening
cheers of his audience.
The meeting concluded with tremendous
cheers for Buchanan and Breckinridge.
Sax Francisco Ratification Meeting.— The
Democracy of San Francisco held a grand rati
fication meeting on Saturday evening last. The
procession was the largest and most imposing
ever _seen in that city. Such a turn out the
most enthusiastic Democrat had not anticipated.
The procession, which was twenty-four minutes
passing the corner of Pacific and Stockton sts.,
four and six abreast, is estimated at from 4,000
to 5,000.
A report having bccivcirculated by the liiack
\ Republicans that the Young Men’s Democratic
j Club would not support the ticket, Mr. Nugent
came forward on behalf of the Club, and pro
i nounced it a slander, when a terrific shout re
verberated over the city.
Resolutions were passed cordially endorsing
’ the nominations, without a dissenting voige.
! At midnight the meeting adjourned, in the
: best humor possible.
San Francisco may be set down as safe for
the Democracy.
Ej.eotiox Return's.— We desire to publish the
result of the election in this county as early as
possible. Will some friend in each precinct, as
soon as the result is known, enclose in an en
velope aud scud us the three tickets, with the
number of votes eaeh'rcceivcd marked against
his name. The name of the precinct should be
written on one of the tickets. If our friends
will attend to this we shall be able to give the
exact result the day after the election.
Earthquake.—A few nights ago the shock of
an earthquake was felt at Humboldt Bay.
Dry Goods Stoke.- Messrs. Btrwin & Bro
have opened a dry goods store on Broad street,
in Judge Caswell’s brick building, first door be
low the “Democrat” building. This establish
ment, being a branch of an extensive business
house in San Francisco, the proprietors are en
abled to sell goods at a low price. Give them
a call.
Removal.— Messrs. Gregory & Spniks, who
