Great Hilliard Match.
Timiiuctoo, Sept. 6th, 1860.
Editor Democrat :—A very exciting bil-
Jianl match cnme off this afternoon at Davis
A Dittmer’s saloon, between two sports of
this place named Count and Hacker. The
game was a four hall American carom game,
of two hundred and fifty points, for $50, und
played upon one of l’lielan’s combination
cushion tables. Count led off and made a
brilliant run of 13 points. Hacker surveyed
the table well, fired and missed his man.
Count then led off, but failed to make it tell.
Hacker plays with great care, and soon gets
nearly even, when a dispute arose in regard
to a count made by bis adversary in which
case lie gets very much excited and showed
signs of fight. The game keeper, however,
settled the dispute, and harmony was again
restored. Count then made a run of fifteen
points, when Hacker in return made a beauti
ful run of 16 points, the largest yet made by
either. Several shots were made by each
without much change in the game, when
Count getting his cue to bear made a run of
20 points, the largest yet made in the game.
Bets were now freely offered two to one on
Count. The betting was now quite lively
and great excitement prevailed throughout
the house as to the result of the game.
Hacker appeared somewhat nervous, but not
withstanding, he showed signs of game and
put in a scientific punch lick with telling
effect, which resulted in a beautiful run of 18
points. Count then appeared to gather
strength, and with a few beautiful rns suc
ceeded in winning the game and money by
44 points. Time, 1 hour and 20 minutes.

The War in Mexico. —A correspondent of
the Alta, writing from the City of Mexico,
August 2d, suys :
We live here in a complete slate of anarchy'
Since Mirnmon was defeated at Ocotilys, near
Jnyuln, he retired to Lagos, which lie still
keeps occupied with 4,000 men. General
Atoll is still defending Guadalajara with an
other 4,000 men, against 10,000 Liberals, un
der Ogazon, and Zuloaga returned quietly to
this city, which is almost hereof any troops
Nevertheless, the Constitutionalists have not
the courage to attack us, though the Gener
als Parra and Berriazabal might bo here
within twenty-four hour*. However, I am
positively informed that the Generals Gegol
iudo, Cnrabajal, Kosas, and Vullc, who, on
cutting Miramon off from the city, are con
sidering seriously whether it would not be
advisable to join said two chiefs and lake
Mexico by a eotip de main, which could be
easily executed.
The foreign Ministers try their utmost to
have a settlement between the contending
parties, leaving the choice of a President to
Congress, but the Liberals will not listen to
any such proposals, as they believe they have
a sure thing, while the Conservatives do their
utmost to make the Spaniards take Vera
Crus, and thus give their antagonists a death
blow.
The capital of the State of Oajaca lias
been abandoned by the Conservative troops,
xvho marched to lguala, the only place which
remains to the party in the south, and minor
has it that they gave General Don Diego A1
varez a good thrashing; however, only half
of the reports are reliable.
The commerce of this city is very much
annoyed by forced loans, causing the suspen
sion of several firms and the closing of busi
ness of others, who will not expose them
selves to see their goods seized by the gov
ernment. The owner of the railroad to
Sayenbaya, an American, though by contract
exempt from contributions of any kind, has
also been assessed for §3,000 and the road
will be sold for that amount, in case of non
payment.
Mining Inventions. —We have already no
ticed two or three mining inventions of Mr.
Edward A. Malteson, of Omega, and we
learn that he has lately added another to the
list. The latter invention is applied to the
derrick, and greatly lessens the labor of lift
ing locks, stumps, etc., from mining claims.
A\ o understand that Mr. Matteson is now
having models made of two or three of his
mining improvements, with the intention of
exhibiting them at the State Fair. Mr. Mnt
teson was the inventor of the hydraulic pro
cess of minii g. the use of which he has aban
doned to the miners of the State, but he has
taken measures to procure patents for some
of his later improvements. —Nevada Deni.
From Ciiix*.— By the bark Creole, which
anived at San Francisco Tuesday evening,
" e have dates from Hongkong to the 24th of
July:
From Shanghae there is no intelligence of
importance. There is no further information
with regard to rebel movements, although
tile Chinese believe that Hangchow has ei
ther fallen or is in great danger.
A disturbance had taken place at a village
named Cowboev, near Swatow, on the 6th of
July, arising out of the seizure of a French
.Missionary by some pirates, and his deten
tion until a ransom of $200 was paiJ. This
was paid by some proselytes he had made in
the vicinity. Word was sent to Hongkong
of the matter, and a naval force dispatched
to the place. A restitution of the Mission
ary’s private property and ransom money was
demanded, and also that the ringlendcrs
should be given up. This was not complied
with, and on the 18th the village was re
duced with shot and shell.
News received at Hongkong from New
Zealand stutes that active preparations had
been made to suppress the outbreak among
the natives at that colony. Considerable ex
citement prevailed among the settlers, many
of whom had turned out ns volunteers. The
naval and military force designed to operate
against the insurrectionists would amount to
two thousand.
The Havels. —The agent of the Ravels ar
rived nt San Francisco by the last steamer,
to prepare the way for that tronpe, who are
•expoeted in the course of a month or two.
Robbery. —The banking house of Marks &
Co., at Orleans Flat, was robbed of about
#3,000 in coin, on Friday, by one Richard
Curtis, on employee in the house. The Ne
vada Democrai says there was some fifteen
or twenty thousand dollars in the safe, in
coin and dust, all of which he might have
taken had he been so disposed, Curtis had
been in the employ of Marks it Co. for some
years, and enjoyed their confidence to the
fullest extent. It is conjectured that ho went
to Washoe.
Three to One! —In the great Castillero or
Ne.v Almaden case, says the Mirror, the
.eminent counsel engaged will argue before
the U. S. District Court in the following or
der: Archibald C. Peoohy, Edmund Ran
dolph, Senator Benjamin, Edmund Randolph,
Hon. ltevcrdy Johnson, and the case will be
closed by ono of the distinguished counsel
for claimants. A pretty heavy force for
Randolph, unaided, to contend successfully
against 1 The arguments will commence on
the 1st of October, and will probably con
sume a whole week.

i Still honored bv the wisest and the best
| In every age where’er its power has blest 1
; J 1 or long before the Mantuan bard had anno
lr ■"! t , bcRra " d old Homan tongue,
j Or deified Triptolenius revealed
! The mysteries in Ceres’ breast conccnled ;
r Egypt s kings their pyramids upreared,
io brave old Time and dark Oblivion feared ;
Or eer old Chinn’s wall stupendous rose,
Jsmg ages since, ’gainst barbarous Tartar foes;
j Or eer the I’arsee worshiper of tiro
j His altars lit where Elbrooz heights aspire ;
j Or Atric Carthage built gritn Moloch’s throne,
I Or Ntnerah urose or Babylon,
j The plow, presnger of the Arts, was known 1
Though rude of form, yet in its furrowed track
fair Plenty trode and paid swart Labor back
Tenfold his toil; for in thosedavs, as now,
The Earth was kind to him who’dravc the plow.
With Agriculture sprang whate’er in Art
Has raised the mind nr purified the heart —
Whate’er in Science hath exalted man
And glorified him since the world began ;
And still to Agriculture do we trace
Tbe first, faint gleam of progress in the race.
The Nations justly vaunted now and great —
Old days beheld them in the hunter state,
When clad in skins, and quivers on their backs,
They followed on the wild deer's bounding track's
Or sought, through wood and brake and fen,
The fierce and gnashing boar within bis den;
Or earned a slim subsistence by the shore
Of lakes and rivers with their scaly store.
Tanned by the sun and dew, their beaten forms
Still harder fared in wintry winds and storms,
Nor homes had they save where they nightly
found
Chance lodging on the bare, ungrateful ground.
Small share was here, I ween, of luxury
Nor downy couch, nor cushioned seat had they—
Smile not—such were our own rude ancestry !
Next came the pastoral days, when men less roved,
lint pitched their camps bv pleasant springs nor
moved
Till pastures failed or rival flocks their bounds
Did press, intrusive on their chosen grounds.
Still, 'twas a roving live, surrounded too
Ily foes and daily dangers not a few,
for force 'gainst force those days prevailed, and
laws
Were none, and each man’s arm made good his |
cause.
But came in turn the third and better state,
With cheering omens of a higher fate.
Then, did the restless Nomad cease to roam—
His hardships o’er, he found at last his home.
From year to year he still improved his land,
Till beautiful it grew beneath his hand,
And laden vine and bleating flocks’ increase
And waving fields gave all his days to peace.
Few fears alarmed him, for he knew the soil
Would aye repay with generous yield bis toil.
Around him grew, with hope and joy elate,
llis children fair that crowned his blest estate.
And near him soon new fields and cots were seen
Where late the brooding wilderness had been.
Thou grew up mutual interests and needs,
And all that such community succeeds.
Against the still untamed and savage man
The armed alliance of the few began,
And soon Society on mutual wants arose,
With peace at home and guards agaiust its foes.
New wants still with the social fabric grew
And needful laws as complicate as new. '
Thus government was formed, and every man
Was sate and bappv in the general plan.
Secure in property and life, each wrought
In his own way and ends congenial sought.
Thus fixed in homes, could be no spoiler’s prey
Each gave hissep’rate faculties free plav, ’
And soon Invention various needs supplied
And luxuries to hardier times deuied.
Meantime like states in other lauds had grown,
With laws, inventions, products of their own.
What lacked one clime another clime possest,
And each could still contribute to the rest.
Thus Commerce rose, and, stimulating art,
Gave impulse to Invention and new start
To all improvements that a Nation raise
And make a people’s glory, wealth and praise.
Upgrew from rude beginnings like to these
Those States renowned along the Tuscan seas,
And she who sat by Tiber’s yellow tide
In pomp of riches and imperial pride.
Thus sprang those capitals of Eastern lands,
bong buried in the deserts’shifting sands,
Whose fallen, rescued monuments avow,
In sculptured yoke and hieroglyphic plow,
Their debt to agricultural toil. " They fell—
As fell the grand old Rome—because too well
They loved the bannered pomp of conquering war,
Neglecting arts of pence more glorious far.
While fought the soldier at a despot's will,
The rusting plow within the field stood still,
And hosts, returning from a vanquished land,
Spread vice and luxury on every hand.
For every soldier on the tented plain
One less to prune the vine and sow the grain
And armies coun ed by the million leave
Broad fields to waste that years will not retrieve.
As on the oilier coutinenton this
With Agriculture came true happiness,
And man advanced by sure and slow degrees
From savage toil and strife to rest and ease.
As Engl end was in Alfred’s time (The Great)
So civilized was Montezuma's state,
And burning bright his lair and peaceful star,
When Cortez came with red right hand of war.
bet truth impartial say if happier now
Is that historic land, than when the plow
Was smoothly gliding through the furrowed plain,
And waved the far Cordilleras with grain,
And rolled the deep canals, with streams that blest
A thousand homes in Eden beauty drest,
And all the realm, from mountain slope to main,
Was fair, in Montezuma's golden reign?
Was art, that built those cities vast, less art,
Because of Aztec genius 'twas a part ?
Was patient toil, that led thro’ channels deep,
And aqueducts, and ’long the rocky steep,
The streams a thousand fertile fields supplied,
boss toil, because no white man’s arm was tried?
Wtre peace and plenty but the Spaniard’s right?
The Aztec barbarous because not white t
As much and more the ai ts of peace had done
For Peru’s realm, —soft children of the Sun.
For, long before the white man’s foot had pressed,
Or north or south, the Cont’nent of the West,
The Inca’s sway had civilized Peru—
A land as happy as the world e’er knew !
’Twas not her temples blazing rich with gold,
And showering light from starry gems untold ;
Her palaces of gorgeous pomp and pride,
Where sate her rich-robed Incas, deified ;
Her golden statues and her carvings rare
Ol'bird and reptile on the burnished ware,
That made the glory ofher tranquil state,
And almost won for her the title "great"!
It was her home*, by many a winding rill,
By rivers wide, in vale, on terraced hill,
Where grew the waving corn, or wand’ring fed
The fleecy flocks by watchful shepherds led ;
Her pleasant cots, where, sheltered from the sun,
Peruvian wives and damsels sat and spun,
Or wove their plumaged pictures—from thu wings
Of tropic birds—of rare and beauteous things,
Or through the loom’s ingenious workings fust
The Alpacca's fleece with skillful fingers passed.
Let paler nations vaunt themselves and praise
Their slow advancement from the savage days;
If government is wisest that’s designed
For good of greatest number of the kind,
Methinks no just philosophy will scan
With scornful eyes the Peru Indian’s plun—
A policy which gave with equal hand
To each his due proportion of the laud.
And each his share of wh it the general toil
Produced from manufacture or the soil,
As lubor was enjoined on all, so uone
Could suffer when the seasoned work was done.
As all too labored duly for the State,
If sickness fell or any evil fate,
The State provided, not as charity
Hut right, for him whose former industry,
Still looking to the common weal in this,
Had swelled her coffers and her granaries,
lu all the realm no subject could he poor—
But peace and plenty sat at each man’s door.
No happier lot the poet’s dream can find,
Nor Art nor Science reach for human kind.
Not all the Did World’s civ’lizution vast,
Nor yet our own, the grandest and the last,
To that one culminating point has come,
To t/iie each man a competence and home.
Thus in her own rude way our muse has shown
How man in all that blesses him has grown
With Agriculture and the arts ot peace,
And how with them these blessings still increase;
The mind and heart still growing with the growth
Of that which first gave training unto both.
For, while the genius of the plow and spade
Improvement still on willing nature made—
The cultured flower expanding into sjzu
Unknown before and tmet with richer dyes,
New forms assuming from the fecund dust
Not left to chance aud to the zephyr’s trust,
But, like with unlike pollen mixed, till strange
Creations bloomed and wonder marked tho
change—
The human soul, the Man, expanded too,
Aud found in realms of thought the strange and
new,
A pleasant task were our’s, could we so grace
Our pen, the history of the plow to trace,—
Its allied helps of science aud the Arts,
And all that to its reign now strength imparts;
How in the Roman and the Oreciau sway
It made the glory of their proudest day ;
How it for ages knew but small regard,
When warriors fought and sang the warrior bard;
r { I(m ’ af [ r '. r times sought knowledge thnt was hid
»" r nkl8h cell* the mountain rocks amid
;'|' (I drew from monasterinl lore and skill ’
| The ancient art the fruitful earth to till;
lfow pruning, grafting caine ; how science found
- v ’w modes to fertilize the failing ground—
Ammonia's properties, the silicates,
The strength ot guano, phosphates, oxalates,
And whatsocrer else may give the earth
Its fecund power and swelling joy of birth ;
And how Improvement with the years kept pace,
And Agriculture blest the hutnaii race.
But now we turn, a not ungrateful theme,
To realize the hi Dorado drentn
,at one land which all that dream fulfills—
I he land whose name the world’s heart thrills:
Our own uncquuled, golden State! the clime
01 wonder, cynosure of modern time!
\V hat silver word, what golden line can say
The half its worth, its matchless wealth portray ?
Ifsoarsthemusc along her mountain chains
Where Grandeur, snow-crowned, rocky-girdled
reigns ;
Or glides adown her golden-sandcd streams ;
Or with the miner plunges deep where gleams,
Mysterious in the hills’ eternal night,
The ore revealed by dimly flickering light;
Or seeks along the barren, ghostly const
1 he caverncd realms where, in black basins tost,
the springs of bitumen boil up to sight;
"V'ings to Napa’s weirdful land her flight,
\\ here, bursting firth from many a lissured rock,
” hot but healing breath and angrv shock,
The imprisoned demon of the earth makes known
His fearful presence in the under-zone;
Or penetrates where Labor seeks its gains
In Santa Clara's quick, mercurial veins ;
Or Shasta’s treasure-laden ground explores,
Her springs of salt, her marble and her ores;
Or scans in Calaveras' mammoth pride
The trunks three thousand winters have defied,
Where’er in all this sunset-land she flics,
New signs, new wonders meet her maz-ed eyes.
Hut California's glory is not told
Dy wealth of resource like to this—her gold,
Her hidden riches in the earth, her stores
Of precious undeveloped things, her ores,
Her quarries vast, her springs medicinal.
Devond all these and far surpassing all
Akin to these, her Agriculture stands:
The pride of earth, the envy of all lands!
Prolific soil! within itself it yields
Of every clime the fruits. Its smiling fields
The tasseled maize afford ; the waving wheat;
Hemp, rice: the jointed cane with essence sweet;
The many seeded fig; its tropic mate,
The oily olive, tamarind and dute ;
The near and peach ; the grape, as rare and fine
In all that gilds the immemorial vine,
As ever grew, in shepherd days of peace,
In native beauty on the hills of Greece,
Or wild in woods that skirt the Arabian Sea
The wandering savage fed with bounty free,
Or in Italia’s purpled vales did hang
To lips as ripe, that Horace kissed and sang.
Here grow those garden monsters that surprise
Like miracles our scarce-believing eyes,
Reminding us of that Titanic age
Recorded in the geologic page,
When shrubs w ere trees, and plants that now in
lines
Our gardens green,had dwarfed Norwegian pines.
0» that same soil, which thus prolific threw
I hose giants forth, when vet the world was new,
Our soil partakes. And thus we leave behind
All climes and lands, and wonder-strike mankind.
l' and ! but filircr yet shall be—for still
Shall Industry her hills ana valleys till,
And Agriculture write on many a spot
Her name in verdure, where before ’twas not,
As Franklin 7*m, when wondering rustics saw
A miracle in Nature’s simplest law.
’Tiy Irrigation, wondrous art though old,
\V ith aids of modern science manifold,
Shall work the magic change we yet shall see,
When all the desert lands shall cultured be;
\\ hen from the Sacramento’s margin green,
Or tule borders of the San Joaquin,
To eastern peaks, whose curving line of snow,
Like some white arm of beauty all aglow
\\ ith love, enwroathes the nestling hills below*;
From yonder western slopes that lave
Their feet within the blue Pacific’s wave
To woods infringing on the arid plain
That heated ripples to the mountain chain ;
From Northern heights of rugged Siskiyou
Whose vales abysmal hide from view*
To where the smoothly shaven waters play
In sheltered San Diego’s tranquil bay,
The land shall blossom w'ith its edens fair,
The fruitful hills make frngrant all the air,
And breezy valleys wave their yellow hair.
F or, mark you, Art, with Science aid, shall make
Spots fertile w hich the ignorant forsake,
And all that w'eary waste of hazy heat,
O’er which the heron’s lonely wing doth beat
In effort vain some moistured snot to find.
Shall prove to man’s enlightened labor kind.
The hidden fountains ol the earth shall rise,
And mock with coolness all the brazen skies ;
The piercing steel shall strike the secret vein
That, bursting forth, shall fertilize the plain,
And soon where late no blade or leaf was seen
Shall orchards bloom and w’aving tields be green.
Oh Land of lleauty ! why the theme prolong ?
Like that delicious isle of Indian song,
\\ hich, o’er the waters gliding, lied pursuit,
Thou hast all gems, all wealth, all golden fruit,
And, far more blest than Indian dreamers were,
We lose thee not, a vision of the air!
Upon the assembling of the Democratic
Convention on Wednesday, J. P. Iloge,
Chairman of the State Central Committee,
saiil in the conclusion of his remarks:
I see many old familiar faces here that I
have in times gone by battled with in the
Democratic cause. 1 welcome them hack. I
am glad to meet them upon the common
platform of the Union and the Constitution.
[Loud cheers.] I bury all differences, I for
get all divisions. I take by the hand every
one—[cheers] —every man who is resolved
to fight for the national nominees, Stephen A.
Douglas and llerechel V. Johnson. [Loud and
continued cheers.] Gentlemen, I don't recog
nize any distinction amongst bolters. [Cheers
and laughter.] However honorable they may
have been in times past, or however much I
may have loved heretofore to follow them,
yet they have cut themselves loose from the
Democratic organization. [Cheers. A voice—
“That's the sentiment.”] They have lent
themselves to a determined and foregone con
spiracy to dissolve this Union by the de
struction of the Democratic party. They
were our friends once, and I part, with them
without regret. [Cheers and laughter.] Their
Democratic religion and their Democratic
principles could not stand the test. They
were weighed in the balance and found
wanting [cheers], and I look for the verdict,
from tlie Democratic people of the State of
California, to he rendered in November next,
to be death to the disunionists, no matter
where they may be. [Loud applause.] Those
thut the Democracy delighted to honor—
those that they have, year nftor year, elec
tion after election, elevated to the high places
in tlie gift of the Government, have deserted
the faith of their fathers, have abandoned
their Democratic religion, have united them
selves with the enemies of tlie republic—
with tlie disunionists of the nation—and they
nre no longer worthy. [Loud applause.]
Gentlemen, we undertook to do what many
people thought was an immense undertaking;
a little hand of ten determined, faithful and
reliable Democrats undertook to read out
twenty-six of tlie party, [Cheers and laugh
ter.] Dut 1 say to you that these ten could
have read them out if they had been twice as
many, if it Imd been necessary, [Loud and
continued cheers and laughter.]
Tiie San Francisco correspondent of the
Stockton Argus says: Orders have been
sent from the Federal official head quarters
here, to all the subsidized bolting ttrecin
ridge and Lime organs throughout the State,
to cease denouncing “Popular Sovereignty,"
and heap “Squatter Sovereignty upon Doug
las instead. 1 notice that several of these
organs have already obeyed the order.—
Perhaps your notemporary —the Republican
can thus find a loop hole ont of which to
crawl for its advocacy of Douglas and Popu
lar Sovereignty in 1858. Do the bolters
really think that the Democracy can be so
egregiously fooled and deceived at this late
day, by such bare faced imposition? If they
do, the ides of November will teach them
differently.
Tough Stopy.—A house near Pleasant
Home, Ky., was struck by lightning, lately,
and a man and his daughter were struck but
not kill. 'Iheir escape was miraculous, for
the lightning melted a knife in the pocket of
the man, and burnt the hair from the head
of the girl.
Uncle .Ions.—A Democratic meeting was
held at Janesville, in Shasta county, last
week, which censured Uncle John Dreibelbis
for seceding from the National Democratic
Convention at lialtiinore —such uction, in the
language of tho resolutions, being a “be
trayal of the principles of the Democracy,
and in utter disregard of the interests and
wishea of hie constituents,”
Ohio Stnte Convention.
‘‘Resolutions endorsing Douglas and John
son were adopted, when about fifty Breckin
ridge meu withdrew from the Convention
ami met at the Neil House* They appointed
a State Central Committee and a Committee
to prepare an address to the Ohio Democracy
and issued a call for a State Convention to
meet at Columbus on the second Tuesday in
August, to nominate a State and electoral
ticket.”
The above extract wc copy from a tele
graph despatch from this city, on the 4th of
July, in relation to our Democratic State
Convention. Wc are sorry to sec the Co
lumbus office engaged in the circulation of
any such a statement about the Ohio Demo
cratic State Convention of July 4th. It is a
gross falsehood to say that about fifty Bicek
inride men withdrew, met at the Neil House
and organized. But two men withdrew.—
The meeting at the Neil House was a pre
arranged thing, got up by Marshal Jul inson,
Dr. Fries ami one or two others, but was not
composed of the Delegates of the Democracy
to the State Convention. It was a self con
stituted body, without any constituency
whatever, Johnson and Fries were at
Charleston and Baltimore endeavoring to
procure a division in the party, and this
liitle side show at Columbus was gotten up
by them to gratify Slidell, Bright it Co.—
Oolumbua (Ohio) Statwsman.
The Marysville Express of yesterday, grew
jubilant in announcing the fact, that its party
in Ohio had held a State convention ; we
therefore commend to its consideration the
above extract from the Ohio Statesman. Wc
do not think that the men who got up that
secession convention, have the least idea
that Breckinride will carry that State. All
they want is to defeat Douglas, no matter
who else may be elected. It is useless to
argue that a secession slave code candidate
for the Presidency has any show at all of
carrying Ohio, the Democracy of which State
has time and again pronounced in favor of
non intervention by Congress, and whose
delegates in tlie National Convention, voted
as a unit for Stephen A. Douglas, as the rep
resentative of the principles of the Demo
cratic party. But the fact is this : There
are certain leaders of the Secession party*,
who wish to defeat Judge Douglas, no matter
what ensues, and it is through their influence
and advice no doubt, that these secession
electorial tickets will be ran, in States where
they have not the shadow of a chance to
succeed. Their motto is "defeat Douglas, or
break up the Democratic party.”
A Volcano in Polk County, Wis,—One
of the strangest phenomena in nature has
recently developed itself near the llorse
Luke, Polk county, Wis. Flames of tire came
up through the eartli in several localities,
and one man’s barn has been burned down
by it. Strange to say, the fire can only be
seen in the daytime, the earth in the evening
bearing a close resemblance to phosphorus
The air smells ns if impregnated with sulphur.
The most remarkable feature in this ense is
the fact that woollen articles in the houses
located near by take fire, although there is
nothing visible to ignite them. This is a
fact.— Chicago Journal.
The Quid Nunc, a pnper published nt
Grand Junction, Tennessee, lias three editors
who cannot agree upon a Presidential candi
date, consequently the journal supports both
Breckinridge and Douglas. The manner in
which this is done is curious. On one page,
edited by Col. D. B. Gaily and Dr. N. II.
Prewitt, are the names of Douglas and John
son under the head “National Democratic
Ticket,” together with a paragraph staling
that the other side of the paper is a separate
and distinct "institution,” with which they
have nothing to do. Turning to the side,
edited by H. G. Adams, the reader finds the
names of Breckinridge and Lane, with the
bending, “Only True National Democratic
Ticket,” and the following paragraph:
"Read Both Sides! —The outside of this
paper is a seperate and distinct department,
under the editoral control of D. B. Gaily and
Dr. N. II. l’rewitt, who advocate the cause
of Douglas and Johnson in this Presidential
campaign.”
Mo. Breckinridge claims that he isn't a
disunionist. An animal not willing to pass
for a pig should'nt say in the sty.—Pren
tice.
Brutal Amusement.—A bear and dogfight
was held last Sunday, ten miles from Napa.
