THE FREMONT MELTING. Tor some time past .the Fremont men had '•been making strong efforts to raise a large meeting for this place on lust Monday. The day wbs fine, and the preparations were ex tensive. Quite a number of people of all parties came to town, but when the meeting organized, and at no lime after, were the seats provided in the public square nearly filled. Before VrjSß& closed they were one Third empty. Wm. G Hurley, Esq., presi ded. I ForJ, of Ohio, spoke first upon the subject 'of "niggordom, nigger-Jriving, nigger- breed ing,"&o., and cerlaiuly paid a poor compli ment to himself and to the intelligence of his audience. He began by announcing himself as one of "theui Know-Nod,ing,dark lantern fellers," which was doubtless highly gratify ing to tho anti Know-Nothing portion of the audience, as illustrating the identity of Re publicsnism vYTTTi Know-Nothingism. Judge Wilmot next delivered a long tirade agaiust slavery and the slave holders in his usual vein, and excilcd perhaps as much bitterness against the South as any man could have done in the same time; for he spoke with all ait and ability for which he is noted But there was certainly no proposition in his speech to ameliorate the condition of the African—no attempt or promise o( any mira ole by which the sea should be opened by walls 011 each side, so that the children of bondage might go over on dry land to Africa for freedom; like the Israelites of old through -the Red sea. It was in a spirit that would 'make the men ol the South hard hparted and •tiff-Decked, but not such as secured the ab olition of slavery in six of the old thirteen "States of the revolution. In the evening the meeting was held in the Court house, and Mr. Pheipp, o( Massachu setts, said the usual amount of hard tilings of the South; but did not tell how It is own State was a glass house where Jo. Hiss and his Know Nothing comrades had bylaw nullified the provision of the national constitution which provides lor the rendition of fugitive slaves—nor how in olden time they legisla ted to hang Quakers and witches, and aided to bold fhe Hartford Convention. Ho talked about "bleeding Kansas," and read some of the laws of Kansas against the freedom of speech and the press which sounded very -much like the old sedition laws of John Ad ams. But he was not candid or fair enough Jo say that the Democrats proposed by .Toombs' bill for the pacification of Kansas to repeal the very laws he read, while tho ■Republicans in the House of Congress re fused to do so. Ford, of Ohio, was then again called out, and, with his coat off and tonguo very heavy, piled it heavily on Mr. Buchanan for "whor ing after Kansas," and explained how, "on the 4th of March next, Mr. Fremont will do worse than steal his wife by getting in bed to tho Union." Tho Fremonters seemed very much edified by the performance. Aleetlnt at Mubtowii. On last Saturday afternoon a Democratic meeting was held at Slabtown, in Locust township. Faler Kline, Esq., presided, and the meeting was addressed by John Fuss in German and by Col. Tale and Wesley Win, Esq., in English. tie Assessed. Every democrat ehocdd sea 10 it that he is assessed at least ten days beforettie General Election and that be is fully prepared to vote for the democratic candidates. Naturalized citizens should have their papers reffily ro that they nay exercise their right to vote. " X3T On Wednesday evening of last week Wesley Wirt, Esq., addressed the Buchanan Club in this place in some very sensible and pertinent remarks, which were doubly ao as coming from an Old Line Whig. DEMOCRATIC MEETING AND POLE. RAISING AT NEW COLUMBUS. On laic Saturday the people of Southern Luzerne and Northern Columbia counliea met at New Columbus, Luzerne county, to taise a hickory pole and hold a Democratic meeting. The pole went up finely at the hands of the yeomanry ; and subsequently the people marched with flags and martial music to the grove near by. The meeting was organized on motion of D. L. Chapin, Esq., by appointing COL. JAMES TUBBB Pres ident, and some twetily Vice Presidents and Secretaries from eight or ten townships which were represented. Quite a number of ladies were present to grace and inspire the occa sion, and convenient seals and stand had been arranged for the audience and speakers. JOHN G. MONTGOMERY, ESQ., of Montour, the Democratic candidate for Congress, first addressed the people in a very dignified and manly definition of the Democratic doctrine upon the subject of Slavery. He was listen ed to with much consideration, and made a very favorable impression. H. W. WEAVER, E>Q, of Columbia, WAB next called to speak, and he proved the identity of Know Nothingism and Republi canism, and exposed the fiailties and fanati cism of these new parties, as in the main made up of men who had very loose position and doubtful character in the old parties, and are always ready for any thing new. He showed how Know-Nolhingism had broken down; snd from a review of history how Re publicanism was hypocritical, inconsistent with itself, and unsafe for the country. Dr. HARRY HAKES, of Luzerne, was then called oul, and lie made a very earnest, spicy and enlivening speech, which kept the audience in good hnmor, and proved hot shot into the ''woolly-horse" candidate. The meeting then adjourned for a few hours. In the evening C. 11. BUCKALEW, ESQ., re viewed the subject of slavery with his usual ability and clearness. He was followed by JOHN G. FREEZE, ESQ., and S. S. WINCHES TER, ESQ., in pointed and pertinent speeches. WHO ARE 'IDE EREMUNTERSt That the Republican party iB identical with tho Know-Nothing organization of a year ago is proved not only by their com mon and identical hostility to Democracy, hut by tho identity of their leaders. Men like George Law have by turns beon Dem ocrats, Know-Nothings and Republicans, while others like Ex-Governor Johnston have made all these turns and some others besides. Law sought the Know-Nothing nomination for Presidency and as soon as he failed to obtain it turned Republican.— Ex-Mayor Conrad, E. Joy Morris, Jo. Hiss have been Know-Nothings, and as soon as they had broken down that party, took pas sage on the black craft of Republicanism. To come nearer home the Rev. John J. Pearce, a fair sample of Know-Notliingism in Lycoming has become a Republican; and, so too the E x-Rcv. Joshua W. Kelley who some two years ago quit the preaching of tho gospel in the northern end of this coun ty for tho business of organigjng Know- Nothing lodges at the midnight hour. He lately raado a Fremont harangue at Lewis burg. But there is a likeness ip tho narrow spir it of bigotry which is the basis of botli theso parties. Know-Nothinglmi sworo men to hostility against their brethren of foroign birth andthe Catholic religion—Republican ism breathes the same hostility to white men in general, especially those of the South. GEORGE SCOTT. The Democraticcandidate for Canal Com missioner is a native of Bradford county, though formally years a. resident and active business man jn Columbia. He is not a noisy politician, but has always been a consistent Democrat. He never sought of fice, but was firsfjpQminatod for Represen tative when it was desirable to select the strongest man in the county for a candidate. He was next year re elected by the consent of the whole district, though in truth the candidate hardly belonged to this county. In the legislature his course was manly and straightforward, and no vote cast by him in those two years has or can be made a source ot reasonable objection against him by any man in the district or out of it. So much was this the case that, though first elected on a local issue, his course was so fair that the very part of the district against which lie was elected was willing to make him a candidate for Congress. He did not seek tho nomination of Canal Commissioner with any pertinacity; at least we can say that when we represented this district in the State Convention of 1855 and voted for him, it was without his solici tation or requost on bis part. He is a man who understands human na ture, and has a good, thorough knowledge of public men and public business. He could not bo deceived in the Canal Board by any arts against which prudence and sound discretion could protect the Slate. In the legislature his colleages all spoke of him as a gentleman of useful business ca pacity, of high personal integrity, and of courteous and agreeable manners. In the Canal Board his services would be useful to the State, and in his party he lias all the qualities o'f character to inspiro confidence and insure success. Senatorial Nomluollon. It will be seen by the proceedings of the Senatorial Conference which was hold at Berwick on Friday last, tbat Col. GEORGE P. STEELE was nominated unanimously as the Democratic candidate for Senate. We shall support him cordially and rejoice at his election. Col. Steele has age, charaeter and experience and will make a useful and intelligent member. He was formerly Sher iff of Luzerne and has been an active, zeal ous and efficient member of our party in that county. Although not a mati accus tomed to, public speaking, his industry, sound judgment and knowledge of public questions as well as of the local wants of this district, render him well qualified for the place for which be has been named.— He will doubtless be elected by a good ma jority ae he deserves to be. DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL CON* FEKENCE. The Democratio Conferees of the t2:h Congressional District met al Steele's Hotel, in Wilkesbarre, on Thursday the 18th of September, and organized by electing HON. EDMUND TAYLOR, of Luzeroe, President of the Conference, and R. W. WEAVER, of -Columbia, Secretary. The following, Co nferees were present: From Luzerne —Hon Edmund Taylor, Lewis H. Litis. From Columbia —John Mcßeynolds, R. W. Weaver. From Montour —Thomas Chalfanl, James McCormiok. \ After the organization of the Conference, on motion of Mr. Mcßeynolds, it adjourned to meet at the same place on Friday morn ing at 7 o'clock, lo afford time for the arrival and participation of the Wyoming Conferees. FRIDAY MORNING. The Conference met according to adjourn ment, and Messrs. Thomas Osterbout and Wm. McKune were present as conferees from Wyoming. On motion of Mr. Mcßeynolds the Con ference proceeded to nominate a candidate for Congress. Mi. McCormick nominated John G. Mont gomery, Fsq., of Montour county. Mr. Osterhoul nominated Robert R. Little, Esq , of Wyoming county. A vote was then taken which resulted as follows: FOR JOHN G. MONTGOMERY— Messrs. Chal farit, McCormick, Mcßeynolds, Weaver, Taylor and Litis—6. FOR R. R. LlTTl.E—Messrs. Osterbout and Mi-Kune—2. So Mr. Montgomery, having a majority of the votes, w as declared the Democratic nom inee of the District for Congress. On motion of Mr. Mcßeynolds, the nomi nation of Mr. Montgomery was then made unanimous by the concurrence of all the Conferees. On motion a Committee was appointed to inform Mr* Montgomery of his nomination. The President appointed Messrs. Mcßey nolds and McCormick as the Committee, who, after retiring a short time, returned to re port that they had performed the duty of their appointment—that Mr. Montgomery accepted the nomination, with his thanks for the honor so done him. Mr. Chalfanl then offered the following resolutions which after being read were unanimously adopted : Resolved, That time and experience have vindicated the justice and integrity of ihe na tional Democratic principles utW.ler which this republic has grown prosperous and powerful, and from 9 feeble colony ornljeSeaboard has spread its broad protection over the wide con tinent lo the Pacific, presenting a proud illus tration lo the world of the capacity of man for self-government under political institutions where the most generous liberty is tempered only by the gentle restraint of such wi laws as allows all the capacities of.bumaq Society to develop themselves under the most lavora ble circumstances. Resolved, That on the subject pf slavery the Democratic party occupies the same po sition for the self-government of man in soci ety, and the equa. right*, of alt the people of every sjate and lertitory, which form the cor ner stone of our republican institutions; and under which alone a nation with such diveisi fied soil, climate, productions and people as ours can ever be governed lo become pros perous, powerful and happy. Resolved, That the dark spirit of big otry which would proscribe a class of men for their religion or'birthplaco is a revi val of the worst features ot Jesuitism and Ja cobinism which darkened the old world, and of the old alien and sedition law of this coun try; and that is hostile to the true spirit of Christianity and alien to the fraternal senti ment of human brotherhood. Resolved, That the nomination of James Bnchanan for President aod John C. Breck inridge for Vice President is peculiarly fit for this juncture of our national affairs, as if pre sents men patriotic as American citizens— with wide capacity and experience in public life—of safe political principles for.the whole republic, and of illustrious fame as states men. Resolved, That the Democratic State ticket presents for public suffrage men capable, in telligent and honest; of true aud consistent political character, and of correct and safe business habits, such as may fairly claim public confidence and support. * / Resolved, That in John G. Montgomery, Esq., the nominee for Congress, the people of this district will have a man sound and true ou all the political issuesuf tbe present time—national and patriolio in his views—of liberal sentiments and firm mind—of highly cultivated intelligence, and with all tbe man liness and fine social character .which fit * man for the Legislative oouncils of (he re public. On motion of Mr. Weaver the Conference then adjourned sine die. EDMUND TAYLOR, Pres't. 11. W. WEAVEH, Sec'y. BP" Mr. Garrison, in tbe last number of the liberator, says; . "We dioeeot from the sentiment Ibat 'the disposition to divide the Union is very slight now'—for it is wide-spread, and growing stronger every hour, and will undoubtedly be greatly increased by the triumph of 'border ruffianism' in the person of James Buchanan. There is strong ground for believiug that he will be the last Fresidentof the United States, in which case the jubilee is not far distant." Of course Mr. Garrison does not mean by this that tbe friends of Mr. Buchanan will do anything to dissolve the Union, or he would himself, most assuredly, be found in their ranks, and be working for the "jubilee."— But he takes it for granted that if Mr. Bu chanan is elected, the friends of Mr. Fre mont will execute their threat, by taking up arms against the the government. This ii what James Wutooii Webb says they will do; and he adds, 'so help me God, lam with them." MEETINQ AT DANVILLE.— The talented Dan iel Dougherty, Esq., of Philadelphia, will ■address the people of Danville on nexh ■Jljirsday, the 25th inst. On the following day he will speak at Williamsport, where Hon. Wat. Preeton, df Kentucky, will also speak. SEN ATORIAL CONVENTION. The Conferees or this Senatorial District met at Berfrick, i>t the House ol Capt. N. Seely, on Friday, Sept. 19th, and all the Conferees being present, to wit: Montour—Jacob Sheep, Geo. Smith. Columbia—Col. John G. Freeze, S. H. Miller. Luzerne—C. R. Bloom, A. Driesbach. On motion ol Caleb R. Bloom, of Luzerne county, GEO. SMITH, of Montour county, was elected President of the Conference; and on modoff, Col. JOHN G. FREEZB was chosen Secretary. Adam Driesbach nominated George P. Steele, Esq., of Luzerne county, for Senator; no other nomination being made. Oil mo tion, Geo. P. Steele was unanimooely nomi nated lor Senator of this Senatorial District. On motion, the following Resolutions were then considered and adopted: • Resolved, That iri the present juncture of our National affairs, we hold the success of the National Democratic party as essential lo the preservation of the Union and the continued happiness and prosperity of our people; that the issues involved in the pres ent contest are of the same kind that have continued to divide the people of this coun try, the Democracy being in favor of en trusting to the people of the States and Terri tories ths settlement of all their domestic affairs, while Ihe opposition are unwilling to concede that right. Resolved, That as Pennsylvanians and Dem ocrats we rejoice in the nomination of James Buchanan as the Democratio candidate for President of these United Slates, (bat we have the fullest confidence in his great abili dous, large experience, unsullied public and private character, and devotion to the princi ples of the party ; and we pledge to him our support and the utmost of our efforts lo se cure his triumphant election. Resolved, That the State ticket is entided lo our firm and undivided support, that we know the men who compose it to be fully entitled to our suffrages by the experience they bring to their aid—by their ability, by Ibeif knowledge of the wants of the citizens of tfie Slate, and by their honesty and fidelity to Ike principles and measures of the De mocracy. Resolved, Thai in plucing in nomination for the responsible position of State Senator. George P. Steele, we give the Democratic parly, of the District a man qualified by age and experience, for the post; entitled to the support of every honest tnan, by the purity of his life and the integrity of his character; and we therefore recommend him to the sup port and confidence of the public, and of the Democratic party.! Resolved, That the members from this Sen atorial District be requested to use their best efforts to secure a full arid fair representation in the Legislature to the counties composing it, in the apportionment to be made at the next sessioji. Justice to this section of the State not having been done in former appor tionments, this is a subject to which the at tention of our Members should be specially directed. Resolved, That the proceediogs of this Conference be published in tbe Democratic papers oflha Senatorial District—signed by the officers. * Then ou motion, Conference adjourned. GEO. SMITH, Pres't. J. G. FREEZE, Sec'y. For the "Star of the North." Wages of Labor. MR. EDITOR: Since the commencement of the Presidential campaign the opposition par lies have been ialsely charging the Demo cratic candidate, James Buchanan, with be ing favorable and advocating the reduction of the wages of the laboring man to ten cents par day. How happens it tbe Detnooratio 'Press and Democratic orators or speakers have nut called the attention of the laboring part of the population to the fact, that if the Black Republican parly succeed in the ac complishment of their object—the abolition of slavery in the Slave States—that the Free States in general and Pennsylvania in partic ular, as bordering on Mason & Dixon's line, will be inundated with the freed slaves of the South, aid in order to obtain employment and avoid starvation will be obliged lo labor at very low wages; and then the laboring white population will have to come down to the low wages of the negro, or nearly so, or remain unemployed. These Black Republi cans are pretending to shed tears (crocodile and hypocritical tears in my opinion) respect ing the condition of the poor white popula tion of the South, and yet they are doing all in their power to accomplish an object which if successful will without doubt cause the sit uation of the laboring and poor white popu lation of the free Stales to be much worse than the poor white population at the South is or can be at tbe present time. White Hall. J. B. John C. Breckinridge. Tbe Hollidaysburg Standard gives the fol lowing graphic description of the Democratic candidate for Vice President: "In person, Mr. Breckinridge, is tell, hand some, and commanding, with a finely-formed intellectual head, which is covered with a plentiful supply of jet black bair. The ex pression of bis faoe is that of a high-toned, chivalrous gentleman, and when lighted up with thd fire from his sparkling dark eyes, it is one of the most fascinating that the eye conld delight to dwell upon. In his style, be is calm, ornate, classical and beautiful— at once betokening the so unit logician, the accomplished scholar, and orator. Mr. Breck inridge is second tu no other man in Amer ica, as an orator, and hia speech on the after noon of the 10th inst., will be remembered with the liveliest captions of pleasure by all who had the good fortune to hear him. His speech was the theme of commendation throughout the City of Pittsburg, so long as we remained in it. The Democracy of the Union may well be proud of their candidate lor the second office in the gift of the Ameri can people; because in bim are combined alt thoke noble and manly qualities ibst adorn humanity, andjrefleel credit upon the fnstitutions of our country, and the sge we live in. Warning* of Jefferson. The following leiler from Thomas Jeffer son lo Mr. Holmes is well worthy of an at tentive perusal. Ii was writien al ihe lime that the nation was convulsed with the fear of destruction, upon the question of slavery, at the admission of Missouri, as a Stale; and though almost a generation has since passed away, the warning voice of the Apostle of Democracy is still full of instruction and deep admonition. See what Jefferson thought of a "geographical line," and its ultimate effect upon the country. And then, when the idea of disunion and destruction is fully pressing upon his mind, see the agony of his soul ex pressed iu these words: "I regret that I am i now to die in the Belief that the useless sao -1 rifice of themselves by the generation of 1776, to acquire self-government and happi ness to their country, is lo be thrown away by the unwise and unwor'hy passions of their | sons, and that my only consolation is to be | that 1 live not to weep over it." MOMTICCELO, April 22, 1820. I thank you, dear sir, for the copy you have been so kind as to send me of the letter I 10 j our constituents on the Missouti question. It is a perfect justification to them. I had for s long time ceased to read newspapers or pay any attention to public affairs, confident they were in good hands, and content to be a passenger in our bark to the shore, from which I ant not distant. But this momentous question, hie a fire bell in the night, awakened and filled me with terror. I considered it alonce as the knell of the Union. It is hushed, indeed, for the moment; but this is a reprieve only, not a final sentence. A geographical line, coinciding with a mark ed principle, moral and political, once con ceived and held up lo the angry passions of men, will never be obliterated, and every new imitation will mark it deeper and deeper. I can say with conscious truth, that there is not a man on earth who would sacrifice more than I would to relieve us from this heavy reproach iu any practical way. The cession of that kind of property—-fur so .it is misnamed—is a begalelle, which would not oost me a second thought il in that way a general emancipation and extirpation could he effected, and, gradually and with due sacrifi ces, I think it might be. But as it is, we have the wolf by the ears, and we can neither hold him nor safely let him go. Justice is iu one scale and self-preservation in the other. Of one thing I am' certain : that, as ihe pas sage of slaves from one Stale to another would not make a slave of a single human being who would noi be so without il, so their diffusion over a greater surface would make thorn individually happier and propor tionally facilitate the accomplishment of their emancipation by dividing the burthen on a greater number of coadjulators. An absli nines, too, from this act of power would re move the jealousy excited by tho underta king of Congress to regulate the coudilion of the different desciiplions of men composing This certainly is the exclusive right of every State, which nothing in the Constitution has ta ken fiom them and given to the general Govern ment. Could Congress, for example, say that the non-freemen of Cotiueciicut shall be free men, thai ihey shall not emigrate into any othe' State 1 I regret that I am now lo die in the belief that the useless sacrifice of them selves by the generation of 1776, to acquire self-government and happiness to their coun try , is lo be thrown away by the unwise and un worthy passions of their sons, aod that my only consolation is to be that I live not to weep over it. If they would but dispassionately weigh the blessings they will throw a way ogaiust an abstract principle more likely to be effect ed by union than by secession, they would pause belore they would perpetiate this act of suicide on themselves and of treason against the hopes of the world. To yourself, as the faithful advocate of the Union, I lender the offering of my esteem and respect. THOS. JEFFERSON. Iteusons of the Negro Douglass for Sop porting Fremont. Fred. Douglass, in .his paper of August 15th, look down the names of the radical Abolition candidates for the Presidency and Vice Presidency, and put up the names of Fremont and Dayton. Let all who follow negro dictation and morals under tbe leader ship of a negro editor mark well bis reasons, for this coutse: "In supporting Fremont and Dayton, we are in no wise required lo abandon a single anti-slavery truth or principle which we have hitherto cherished and publicly advocated. Hereafter, as hitherto, we shall contend for every principle and maintain every doctrine laid down in the platform of the raidical Ab olitionists. The unconstitutionality of sla very, tbe illegality ot slavery, the right of the federul government to Bbolish slavery in ev ery part of this republic, whether in States or Territories will be as firmly held and as sternly insisted on as hitherto. And we are the more reconciled lo accepting Fremont Dayton by the fact that they are surrounded by a party of progressive men. We take them, therelore, not merely for what they are, but for what we have goad reason to believe they will all become when they have lived Jor a time in the elimcnt of anti-slavery disunion, fit sup porting tbem we neither dishonor our princi ples .-tor lessen our means of securing their adoption and active application. We can reach the ears and hearts of as great a num ber within the ranks of the Republican parly as we could possibly do by remaining out side those ranks. We know of no law ap plicable to the progress and promulgation of radical Abolition principles which would act less favorably towards our principles inside the parly titan outside of it. "The right and duly of tbe federal govern ment lo abolish slavery everywhere in the United Slates is entirely true and deeply im portant—and yet, it must ba confessed that tills dontrine lias been made appreciable but 1o a lew tninds, the dwellers in the mountain peaks of the moral world, who catch the first beams of morning long before the slumber ers In tbe valleys awake from theirs dreams. This new doctrine, we think, may very prop erly be loft to take its turn in the arena of discussion. Time end argument will do more for its progress, and its final adoption by the people, than can be done for it in the present crisis by the few votes of the isolsted radical abolitionists." The Missouri Compromise Liar. The inconsistencies of the supporters of Fremont cannot be more fully proved, and the insincerity of their present cry of horror at the so-called repeal of the Missouri Com promise line cannot be more folly shown than by a mere reference to the following tacts: On the 10th of August, 1848, a vote was taken in the Senate of the United Stales on the amendment oi Senator Douglas to the Oregon Territotial bill, offering to the North the extension of the Missouri Compro mise line to the Pacific ocean. It was oarried in the Senate by the entire vote of the Southern members united with the patriotic Senators oljtbe Middle States.— It was opposed by the almost united vole of the Northern Senators, among whom we find the moat active and influential of the supporters of Fremont—-among whom stands recorded the votes of Hamlin, Hu|p, Davis and DAYTON. The next day, the llth of August, (be vo'.e on this amendment was taken in the Honse of Representatives, and it was defeated by the united vote of the North, among which we find the names of Horace Mann, Gov. Pollock and Da id Wil mot. Again, read the subjoined remarks of Sen ator Hale on a simple proposition to amend Ihe Utah Territotial bill, (one of the Com promise measures of I860,) substituting the line of 36 deg. and 30 min. for the parallel of 37 degrees. "MR. HALE.—I wish to say a word as a reason why I shall vole against the amend ment. I shall vote against 36" 30' because I think there is an implication in it. [Laugh ter] I will vote for 37° or 35° either, just as it is convenient; but it is idle to shut our eyes to the fact that here is an attempt in this bill—l will not say it is the intention of the mover—to pledge this Senate and Con gress to the imaginary line of 36° 30', be cause there are some historical recollections connected with it in regard to this controversy about slavery. I will content with saying, that I never will, by vote or speech, admit or submit to anything that may bind the action of oar legislation here to make the unratlel of 36° 30' the boundary line between slave and free territory. And when I say that, I exp ain the jeason why 1 go against the amend ment."" These facts need no comment. They plainly show ihe views of the Republican leaders on the Missouri Compromise, and about the repeal of which so much breath is expended. Ef The following article from the Fre mont paper at Carbonduta exhibits the hos tile spirit of Republicanism against the natUr ralized citizen in its true light: Going it with a LORY en ess. —The May or's Court of our City is in session the pres ent week, and the Court Ilouse, streets, and groggeries are '-filled and damned" with those who boast of being the better citizens of this i country, who have come here to be made | voters for the coming elections. A van number have utreaily received their final pa pere, and the cry is "still they come." Re port sajs that not much less than three hun dred will he naturalized at the present term.

"Oh, blessed health!" exclaims Sterne, " 'lis thou who enlarge*! the soul and open "est all its powers to receive instruction and "to relish virtue. He that has thee has little "else to wish for; he that i 9 so wretched as "to want thee, wants everything with thee." The truth of tHis apostrophe every one must acknow ledge; poor Sterne spoke from sad ex perience. And yet, familiar as every mart is with the troth herein expressed, no mortal could compute the members who ruin them selves in body, rnind, and fortune by peg leclitig to employ the proper temedies when health fails. How is this neglect to be rem edied? The evil has become so consecrated by age, that the man who undertakes to amend it requires no ordinary hardihood, such a man is Professor Holloway. The honest laborer in the cause ol hu manity finds no sadder discouragement, then in the complacent indifference with which people prefer rather to endure a long existing evil, than to incur the trouble necessary to get rid of it- The more aged ae error has become, the more difficult it ia to remove it. This is true in an especial- ipanner of the art of healing, as it was known and prac tised before the advent of this wonderful ge nius whose mission has bean to re-establish tho treatment of human ailments in a rational way. One by one the venerable abuses that hare disgtaced the past are disappearing, and among the rest, the errors that have crept iuto medical practice have got their dismis sion papers, and are obliged to use a vulgar phrase, "to cut and run." Where, it may be asked, are the proofs? Proofs! Why, there is one great patent, palpable fact, which has been staring ihe world in the face fot the last twenty years, and working its way through popular prejudice into popular favor with a success which is the most unques tionable evidence of its power as a proof.— The medioines of Professor Holloway have been silently but powerfully effecting a change in the science of physio which the world itself has begun to wonder at. It is well known that the causes ol alt the dis eases and sufferings to which people are subject are very few, although their indica lions may be numejously vaired. The old plan of curing diseases was by affecting their primary causes. Prof. Holloway initiated a uew mode of treatment by the discovery of his Pitts and Ointment, which, whilst imme diately grappling with the ultimata symptoms, reach also to the seat of the disease and eradicate the first causes, thus destroying ill subsequent liability to similar affections.— We do not mean to praise these Pills and Ointments. We confine ourselves to staling facts, and are perfectly satisfied that no eulogy is needed. They speak for them selves.—Mobile Register. ASSOCIATE JUDGE* Ejre requested to announce that GEO.

HoUo'way's Pills opeiate beneficially not only upon the diseased organs, bnl upon the constitution of the invalid. To quicken the torpid stomach, enable the disordered liver to secrete a due portion of healthy bile, and re move obstructions from the intestines, are important objects; but Hollow-ay's Pills do more than this. They recruit the stamina of the patient, and infuse tone and vigor into ftie whole vital machinery. The animal spirits, sympathising with the physical powers, be come light ami buoyant, and that greatest of earthly blessings "a sound mind in a sound body" is Ihe result.
