THE CONVENTION AND ITIE THKEI- The proceedings of the convention on last Monday were as harmonious as it is practi cable for such a body to be. No second bal lot was necessary in any case, end ail the candidates nominated had decided majori ties. The candiil tax-payers and business men of the county will lee) that the nomi nees are good and true men for their (daces —that they are honest and capable, and up on that ground alone they will receive many votes. No office in this county is much profit or honor to its bolder, but it is a mat ter of high interest to the public that fit men be chosen, and that the public business be safely and correctly dune. This considera tion seemed to be the prominent one in term ing the ticket; and no person except per haps itching or disappointed politicians can find the slightest fault with it. And not on ly are Ihe nominees the right men for their places because of proper business qualifica tions, but their characters and correct habits are such that the moral influence of their elec tion will be for good, aud will do credit to the county. Of the candidate for Assembly from this district we speak in another ar liole. For SHERIFF the people were pleased that a man so well qualified as Stephen H. Mil ler was a candidate, and if other men wished for the office they felt it was useless to con lend against the 'Squire. He has been for years in mercantile business, and as a Jus tice has had still further experience in busi ness. He is well known through the county, having formerly resided at Orangeville; and has a host of friends. Both the English and German vernacular are familiar to him Though he was perhaps .never before in a county convention, and is not a noisy politi cian, he has always been a consistent Dam ocret, and has olten done the cause of the people good service by an honorable influ ence. He may therefore be regarded as fresh from the rauks of the people, and his same strength of respectable character which made him the unanimous nominee of the parly will, we think, elect him without a competition. For TREASURER Jacob Harris is certainly a very fit man, and one of auch correct and safe business habits and experience that all who know hint have full confidence in his integrity and qualifications. Out of the coun ty-seat there are few if any belter business men in the county than Esquire Harris ; and in bis hands the publiu accounts would be intelligible to every lux-payer, ami would preaent a clean balance at the end of each year. For COMMISSIONER, Jonas Fahringer is an honest lax-payer of Locust whose best qualifications are that he has good uirn mon sense and knows how taxes are earned. He ia an intelligent mechanio, of whom all his neighbors speak well ; 'and the Demo cratic Fahringer family bears a character ol respectability and honesty that will secure Jonas a strong vole in all the Roarinacreek Talley. He came most strongly backed from Ihe south side of the river where the candi date belonged; and so generous and manly was his conduct toward bis competitors, and •uch their respect for him that at any rate two of them were almost more his friends than his rivals, and were almost as well pleas-' ed with his success as they could have been with their own nomination. Such manliness did much more for Ibera than any other course could. For AUDITOR Jacob Demott Esq , of Madi son ia a good acoountant, and Henry G. Phil lips will make a respectable member ol the Board. Let the poor Devil go. It would be wanton cruelty to kick any lon ger into the sore ribs of the pour fool who has lately been wallowing in the mire ol his slang to cool the intenaity of bis burning mulice and . disappointment. He is as harmless as the poor toad where he is known—except to those whose misfortune it is to hive him for a friettd; for he never abused any man who did not from that very fact rise in the respect of all honest and decent men. To ihe many who want bint read out of the party we have unlv to say that would be useless, for he ha* long since read himel f out. To those who ask whether be has been initialed into the Know-Nothing party we answer he needed no vaccination because he took it finely in a natural way, and deserved a certificate of' honorary membership. If he did not get one, he sold himself in a very poor market. His opposition to the Democratic ticket fnr two years past did lifie barm it is trne, and it has been reported that the reason why the Know Nothings do not recognize him openly as a brother ia because the smartest ones among them declare that would ruin them, and in sist that they might have elected their candi dates in this county last fall if be bad not openly gone with them. Candidate for Assembly. The action of Ihe Convention last Monday endorsed ibe nomination of JOHN G. MONT GOMERY, ESQ., of Montour County, and lie ia before the electors of the district HI the regular Democratic candidate and ns such entitled loan undivided parly support. The candidate, this year, being conceded to Montour, the choice of that County should be agreed to, unless strong reasons exist a ga'mst it, of which tho convention and the conferees selected by it - are the competent and proper judges. Alter their approval of the candidate named, his support becomes the clear doty of every member ol the party. There are those who would have preJer red a different selection and to such a few I words may be timely; for it is expedient I that all should be satisfied that the oonven- I lion proceeded upon clear and solid grounds of action. 1. The nominee is a man of undoubted a bilily und characle'; circumstances greatly to be regarded, especially in view ol the detec tive material of which the Legislature has I been composed for some years. The attempt | is now being made throughout the State to j select substantia! inen as candidates, and it ia right that this district unite in so good and necessary a work. | 2. The nominee is thoroughly with the party in its battle with intolerance arid pro- I scription, and in its stern defence of consti j tutional principles against the assaults of fa natici-m, ambition and interest. The here | sies which bewilder the weak, and seduce j into desperate courses those who are unprin cipled, will have in him au able and deter | mined enemy. j 3. The importance of a Democratic major- I ity in the next Legislature is "evident, and hence conciliation and a firm union of both counties upon a candidate is highly expedi- I ent and necessary. Subjects of legislation of great interest are to bo considered at the I next session, in which fundamental princi ples are involved, and a Senator to represent this State in the Congress of the United States is to be elected. 4. Local difficulties, which have hereto- I fore existed, are not involved in this election. No question between this county and Mon tour is pending or is likely to arise ; and even if this were not so, there is ample security in the fact that this county will still have a rep ! resentative in the Senate. Besides, we be lieve the nominee himself is sincerely op posed to any species of renewed agitation. Upon the grounds we have mentioned, and others thai could be stated, we trust that Mr. M. will receive a general, generous and uni ted support from the democracy of this coun- V Demccrutic ronfeience. On Wednesday, August 29 1855, the con ferees from the Democratic party of Colum bia and Montour, met at the bouse of Jacob Dyer in Cattawissa, whereupon John Deenjr., on motion, was appointed Chairman and Daniel Lee Secretary. . j Daniel Lee and Casper Rahn produced their credentials as conferees from Columbia, j and John Deen jr. and Jo v u Dildine as con ferees from Montour and severally tuuk their seals in the conference. Whereupon, on motion, John G. Montgom ery was unanimously nominated as lite Dem ocratic candidate for Assembly in the next Legislature from this district. The Conference then addressed the follow ing le'ter to Mr. Montgomery and received the fnllowirg reply, which was approved and ordered to be published with the proceedings of the Conference. On motion adjourned. JOHN DEEN. jr., Chairman, DANIEL LEE, Sec'y "Cattawissa, Aug. 29, 1855. J. G. MONTGOMERY, ESQ.: Dair Sir, —We the un dersigned conferees from the counties ol Co lumbia and Muntour, take this method of in forming you that you have been duly nomi nated as a candidate for Assembly. Very respectfully yours, JOHN DEEN, jr. C. RAHN, JOHN DILDINE, DANIEL I.F.E To (he Covfeiees of (he Democratic pai !y oftjie Counties if Columbia and Montour, noui in session at Cattawissa. GENTLEMEN:—I have this moment receiv ed your letter informing me of my nomina tion for the legislature by your conference and in reply say thai I accept the nomination, and beg you and the conventions which you represent to accept my thanks for the honor conferred. In order to avoid the necessity of inturtog atories ilu'iug the canvass I deem it proper now to stale, that, if elected, I shall sustain in the legislature, all those principles and measures, which compose the platform of the democratic paily, so far as they may come before that body. My action, on con stitutional questions, will he guided by my own judgment, mvured by careful reflection and on consultation of the highest judicial authorities. On questions ol expediency, the will of a majority of my constituents, and not my own. shall control my action. And I shall take special pains to ascertain what that will is, at the time, on all bills of great importance. 1 am not aware that the know- nothing liquor law of the last session gives satisfaction to any body in this representative district, and I lake it for granted that it must give place to some other law on that subject. I, of course, have no knowledge ot the provisions and terms of any ot the bills which may be proposed as a substitute for it; and therefore will not pledge either for or against either of them—save only, that on this side issue, and all other questions of expediency, the will of my constituents shall be truly represented. Alter a persona! acquaintance with most' of my fellow citizens in this district, formed during the practice of my profession, (or the last quarter of a century, amongst them; and the recent evidence ol their generous confi dence, manifested by a nomination of the democratic conventions in both of the coun ties, for the legislature, unprecedented here for its unanimity; and that too without pledges on any subject, I feel justified in saving, that, if I shall go into the legislature, I may be tbere free end untrammcled, to rep resent them truly and honestly, to the best of my ability. J. U. MONTGOMERY. Cattawtsaa, Aug. 29, 1858. Democratic County Convention. I In pursuance of the call of the Standing Committee, the Democratic Convention of Columbia county met at the Court-house in Bloomsbnrg on Monday afternoon the 27th day of August, and was organized by ap pointing the billowing officers: PETER KLINE, President.

Dewitt, Sugarloaf. —Jacob H. Fritz, Montgomery Cole. There were two sets of delegates from Greenwood. Jacob Evans and Elijah Albert son were the one, and Nicholas Kindt and John Kisner the other. They were heard before the Convention. Mr. Evans said that the Democrats of Greenwood met last Sa'ur day and selected f in. and his colleague to represent them. After the election had been closed a number of Know-Nothings came and organized a new election and sent the other eel of delegates who now claimed seats here. Mr. Kindt renlied that the polls had not been kept open long snongh on Saturday to constitute a fair election, and as to being Know-Nothings ho demanded proof ihal he or those who voted for him were Know- Nothings. Mr. Evans answered that he could not prove any man to be a Know-Nothing, for lliey all denied their membership; and the evidence he had in this case was that these men have politically acted with and voted for Know-Nothing candidates. One set of delegates were chosen t'il'-r DO cc, Ibe other by marks, and neither by bal lot. The whole question seemed to turn upon the point whether the second set cho sen were Know-Nothing". A number of del egates joined the discussion, and a vote was Huts 11} taken with the following tesult as to which set should have seats in the conven tion.

The Committee add :—The following in | struct ions are deemed proper in these days | of political degeneration, when it is well known thai we have an enemy in the field, j clothed with powers of midnight darkness, I whose characteristic is hypocrisy, deceit and ) falsehood. None but Democrats in practice and principle, should be permitted to say who shall be candidates of the parly—there fore none bat Democrats should be permitted to vote at the Democratic Delegate Elec tions. Dostou Veterinary lustitutc. This is the first- Institution of the kind ev er incorporated in the United States, and the first legislative acknowledgment of the claims which our domestic animals have oil their superiors. England, France, and Germany have long since endowed their Veterinary Universities; and therein have trained up a class of men who are abroad, dispensing, with liberal hands and willing hearts, the benefits of science to the sick and suffering of the inferior orders ol creatiou. The Veterinary Science offers the only practicable and probable means of arresting the many unnecessary cases of disease and premature dejuhs that are constantly occur ring among horses and cattle. Among the Faculty we recognize the name of our old friend Dr. G H. DAIID. The Fac ulty are Geo. H Dadd, M. D., Prof, of Anat omy and Physiology. C. M. Wood, M. D., Prof, of Theory and Practice of Vet. Medi cine and Surgery. R. Wood, M. D., Prof, of Cattle Pathology. The first session will commence on the Ist Monday of November 1855, and continue folir months. THE PENNSYLVANIA SCHOOL JOURNAL • A Monthly of thirty-two panes, edited by THOJ, H. BURROWS. Lancaster, Pa. One dollar per annum in advance. This deservedly popular Educational Jou rnal entered upon its fourth volume in July.— Under the editorial auspices of the indefati gable BORROWS, whose name is identified with the public schools of Pennsylvania,it has become one of the most efficient instrumen talities in promoting the interests of Educa tional Prog-ess. Adopting for its motto the axiom of V\'M. I'ENN : That which makes a good constitution must keep it, viz.: men of wisdom and vir tue: qualities that, because they descend not with worldly inheritance, must be carefully propagated by a virtuous cducution of youth; the editor exerts himself to the end of ma king this great truth more generilly appreci ated; in awakening the mind of the public to its vast importuueer and in arousing it to that point when nothing short of measures which shall contribute to this end shall be generally adopted throughout the Slate. In this very laudable work we extend to the i Journal our heart and our hand, and urge up on our friends to aid it and the causo to which it is devoted, by extending its circulation. Free Soil Convention In Knusas. ST. Louis, Aug. 23.—The Free Soilers ol Kansas held a mats meeting at Lawrence, on the 14th inst. It was attended by six hun dred persons, and resolutions were adopted denouncing the elections held on the 13th of March last as a great outrage, denying the legaliiy of the legislature,and pledging them selves to resist its authority. They also rec ommend the election of delegates to a con vention to form a Slate Constitution, with a view to au immediate State organization and application to the next Congress for admis sion into the Union. A resolution of thanks to Gov. Reeder was also adopted. In pursu ance of the resolutions, a Stale Convention is called to meet at Big Springs, on the sth of September next, tn frame a State Constitu tion. The Convention is to be composed of five delegates from each representative dis trict. LKWISBUBQ UNIVERSITY.—This thrivingseal of learning held its fifth annual commence ment on the 16(h instant. The programme shows a class of twelve. The institution has a very handsome endowment, of which Dr. Jayne and Wm. Bncknell, Esq., of Phil adelphia, a d J. P. Crozer, Esq of Chester, gave $25,000. The President is the Rev. Howard Malcom, D. D., for many years pres ident of Georgetown College, Kentucky.— The honorary degree of Doctor of Philosophy was moat worthily conferred on the Presi dent of the Franklin Institute of the city, J. C. Cresson, Esq. Hf The Bounty Land Warrants issued up to the 21st of August, number 20,588. The number of applications received Is 206,800 The ItemoTal'of Reeder. It mutt be gratifying to the feeling* of Gov. Reeder to tee the many marks of personal frieiuTehip which are tendered him by those who have neretofore admired the man ; and wo with we could think these were all justi fied by bis case as it actually stands. The charge of land speculations is not an after thought, and by the administration as a pre text for his removal,for it was a charge which during the whole year has been receiving the intention of the government. The Beaver Star thus explains the case : In his report to the President, dated Jan'y ISth, (5. W. Mannypentty, Esq., Commis sioner of Indian AfTairs, referred to certain oontracts made for the sale of four tracts of land in the territory of Kansas, reserved !o half-breed Kansas Indians, and recommend ed that these contracts be not confirmed. In that report, those contracts are alluded to as "disreputable attempts of certain official func tionaries to speculate on these lands and, at the close of the report, the following lan guage occurs : " They disclose a condition of things among the federal officers which, if not soon rebuk ed, must produce a state of demoralization in the territory, the effects of which will be as lamentable as the acts themselves are dis graceful." With this information before him, what was the duty of the President I—to see that the character of his administration be not dis graced ?—to see that the rights of those half breeds be protected ?—to inquire into the ao lions of those who hold office under his ap pointment I—or to have a system of fraud and demoralization go unpunished, and have the character of Ins administration abused, and the rights of the half-breeds unprotec ted ? Had he chosen to pass the matter over in silence, it would have given his op ponents an opportunity of making great cap ital out of the fact that President Pierce per mitted such plunder without rebuking it.— And now, that he has chosen to remove the man against whom the charges were preferr ed, those who are ever ready to condemn his acts are proclaiming that he did wrong. As it is not our intention to undertake for ming any man's opinion tor him—we leave every render now to answer for himself the question, was it the duty of President Pierce to examine the charges against Gov.Reeder ? Settle that matter as you will atul we will now put the questions :— Did Gov. Reeder en gage tn those half-breed purchases 1 and if so, did his conduct in the matter merit a removal ? To the tnitid of every sensible man, a satis factory affirmative answer to those two ques lions will justify the President in his act, and justify us as an anti-slavery agnail, in endor sing the removal of Reeder. To answer the first question, we have but to quote from Gov. Reader's letter to Com missioner Manypeuny, dated Match SOth, 1855, in which he says : " These contracts were, for convenience sake, made in the name of Judge Johnson, al hough it was well understood that Judge Eilmore, Colonel Isaacs and myself were equally interested." Then, the first question is answered ; Gov Reeder admits that he was equally interest ed with Messrs. Johnson, Eilmore and Isaacs in the purchase of those lands. We come now to inquire into the character ol that pur chase. Under the 6ih Article of the Kansas treaty of 1825, certain lands wore set apart for the use of the Indians in that Territory, and a 'usufructury' interest in those lands was giv en to the Indians—that is they had—as the word signifies—the temporary use of those lands, but had no right to sell them. Nor can they be settled by white men or sold as public lands until the Indian title is extin guished by an act of Congress. But, Gov. Reeder undertakes in his letter to the Commissioner, to justify the transac tion on the ground that, of the four grantors, Louis Papin, Francois Aubery and Moses Belmard, are white men, and entirely capa ble of managing their own business. Admit ting this to be the case, still the fact that Jo seph James, the Joimh grantor is the son of an Indian Mother, from whom he inherited his interest in the lands in question, would make the transaction illegal. But, we ask, who are Papin, Aubery and Belmard ?—they are but Frenchmen, who have married daugh ters of Louis Gonvil and his Indian wife.— Now, it is easily perceived that in this Kan sas purchase" while the Governor was deal ing with shrewd Frenchmen, he was but pur chasing the lands that belonged to their In dian wives. And any one, who is at all ac quainted with the manner of Indian oouvey aucing, knows that white men who marry among them have no right to dispose of their lands. Three years ago, application was made on behalf of J. U. Cheuault, Esq., for the approval of a deed for the very section of land now proposed to be conveyed to Gov. Reeder, and the deed was refused. So that Gov. Reeder, in his transactions with those half-breeds was acting illegally.* THE EVIL or DIVIDED COMMAND in the Cri mean army has become so manifest that the English leading papers are urging the neces sity of giving the command of both armies to one general. The suggestion, it is sup posed, comes from the Fnglish government, which is therefore presumed to be ready to act opon it. An ordinary degree of common sense in the Government should have sug gested this clyange months ago. But who will be the generalissimo J A TRIAL or REAPING MACHINES, at the In dustrial Fair, in Paris, has taken place, and, as usual, the American machines carried ofl the palm from the French and English ma chines. Already the wealthy farmers from all parts of the country are coming to Paris to see these machines. A more lively inter est is taken in them than was amieipated, and no difflcul'y whatever will be experi enced in their introduction into general use.
