STAR OP THE NORTH.
WM. H. JACOBY, EDITOR. BLOOISBIIBC, WEDKKSDAYTIUG. 21,185! L Democratic [Nominations. FOR AUDITOR RICHARDSON L. WRIGHT, OF PHILADELPHIA. FOR SURVEYOR GENERAL, JOHN ROWE, OF FRANKLIN COUNTY. / Col. Tde and the Columbia Democrat. THE poor old simple soul, Le,vi L.Tate, editor of the Columbia Democrat y has conde scend so low as to notice some of the doings of the STAR OF THE NORTH, the only acknowl edged Democratic paper published at the County seat of Columbia. The old man has become considerably alarmed at this "channel," from the fact that it is heavily leden with support from the public Demo cratic officers whom he litterly opposed in their electrons. But there are some people who have so much of malice and bile in their nature,that nothing has to them its nat ural color. They are never content; they feel eo ugly within that they must pervert and nnd distort to some evil intent everything they hear and read. If they cannot be hap py themselves, as vciy seldom they are, they determine that no one else shall be so, if at all in their power to prevent it. And judg ing others by their maligni'y, they cannot believe that any intent of the human mind can be good. The STAR while under onr control has, as our numerous readers can allest, never jost led Democratic nominations; nor never sup ported men for nominations who have been placed in Convention, to assist in forming a Democratic ticket, and then turned traitor to the party and helped defeat the ticket of his own making. This the STAR has never done ; and we feel proud in editing such a paper, and rest assured thai a journal of this char acter must eventually be crowned with abundant success. The STAR is taken and read, and punctual ly paid for, by hundreds of families of re spectability, in and out of the county—by families that are competant to judge as to its being "so utterly beneath contempt," as the whining Democrat styles it to hie readers, but we trust in their better judgment. Our paper visits the family circle of the truly religious and moral man—such circles that a paper teeming with immoral and illegal advertising (say nothing about the libelous matter) could not enter. The editor or his paper would not be countenanced. The Democrat says, "we decline holding any communication with its operations (meaning the STAR) and with which party we can never consent to hold respectable intercourse." The words in parenthesis are ours. Dear me! what shall we do! and what will become of our party. Only to think, tho Democrat will not have "inter course" with the STAR or its party any more, it does appear to us that the Democrat had "intercourse" with us a little over a year ago, when it got completely knockeJ off the (in ter) course. It is very liberal in the Democrat to acknowledge us in existence with a parly. This is something more that we would nat urally expect of it; its endeavors have been ever since we took control of this journal, the STAR OF THE NORTH, to crush us out of existence. Nothing has been too email for its editor to stoop to and dabble with in order to cripple our business. The pock-faced and green-eyed editor, (excuse us reader for using these epithets, they are so applicable, can't help it) soon after we had commenced the publication of the STAR, in his rides over the county, we are informed, circulated the report that the STAR would not live three months, and that people had better not sub scribe to it, as it would be a sinking institu tion, for its editor had neither means nor ability to carry on the paper. We do not say he did this, but we have been credibly in formed that such is the fact. A man that would do so is a mean contemptable puppy and we are not to modest to knock the trot ters from under such a scamp. The STAR is now in its twentieth month since our having control of it. That's a little over three months, so send along your names, we are out of danger. GODEY'B LADY'S BOOK. —This popular mag azine has reached our sanctum for the month of September. This work exceeds all like publications. For a number of years it has been looked upon as a perfect exam ple. In the present number the illustrations are splendid. The Heroine Woman of the Revolution , and "Eyes Right," are both hand somly executed engravings. The fashions and paterns, in this number, generally are of an elegant and grand style. Godey's long experience enables him to please the most fastidious admirer of fashions. We say, and the ladies will agree with us, that L. A. Go dey, of Philadelphia, publishes the best Ladiee' book in extant. To be satisfied that this is the case, subscribe for it and test its merits. A single copy, per year, $3; by club it can be had considerable cheaper. THE EMNBUBGH REVlEW— American Edi tion—Vov. LI.

THE Bloorasburg & Lackawanna Railroad Extension from Rupert to Danville is com pleted. The oars run through to Danville over this new road. The first train passed over the road a few days since. To the Bob-tail Organ. THE brayings of the last Columbia Demo crat are rather alarming; one not acquainted with its whining and lamentable appeals to the public would suppose that it was, on last Saturday, kicking its last. It pitches into the County officers, the Republican, and us, in a round-about way. Now if the Dem ocrat has anything to say about the course of the STAR or its editor, we would thank it to put its articles more direct to us, that all his readers may understand what he is dri ving r else forever hold its peace as to nof having "intercourse" with us or our party. It appears that he has no desire to have "intercourse" with our Democratic journal only in a sneaking manner, by the way very characteristic of the man. We are perfectly satisfied that he should tefuse "intercourse" with us, as it would unmis takably redound to our credit to not havo anything to say or do with this blackguard, ing sheet, in any manner or form. The Democrat and its crew should try their hand again at manufacturing "Sugarloaf" communications ; they may do better next time. Howsomever, try to write so as to not be expo-ed—change your style a little more. After you have accomplished this— to write without being detected—then for your own sake, say nothing about men sup porting candidates for office who have run against Democratic nominations. They should sweep their own door-yard, and ad here to the old maxim, "persons living in glass houses should not throw stones." Bolt ing and jostling nominations should not be intimated by the Democrat. How dare it. Cool impudence, indeed. Scarcely is a Convention held and a full ticket nominated but what the editor of the Democrat opposes some one on it. It is truly said of hitn, as we heard remarked a few days since, that "his paper does one thing and he does another." That is, his paper advocates the ticket or party and he opposes it. He is a beaul'ful specimen of humanity to attempt to advocate pure Democratic principles to an intelligent public. We would that the whole world could see him ; and we should like nothing better than to be the exhibiter for the purpose of reaping the benefits. TIIE SCIENTIFIC ARTISAN, published week ly at Cincinnati, Ohio, has entered upon its second volume with fair auspices of becom ing a firm, reliable, and valuable institution. It is one of the cheapest Scientific and Me chanical papers in the world. It is strictly devoted to the advocacy and promulgation of all inlormation which is more particular ly of a scientific character and embraces within its scope, discussion upon Art, Sci ence, Invention, Discovery, Manufactures, and all the various industrial pursuits. Suc cess to it. Address, American Patent Com pany, Ciucinnati, Ohio. I P THE "standing candidate for Sheriff," who smells "treason" in the fact of promi nent Democrats being friendly and sociable with the editor of the Republican, don't soon practice on the motto of "thinking twice belore he speaks once," he may possibly "slip up" in some of his calculations Thpre are a lew who arq not deceived by his Janus face. They see through his double mask. Because men honestly differ in pol itics it is no reason they should treat each other like savages, or determine to disagree on every other subject.— Republican.

EDITOR, Dear Sir .wThe last Columbia Demo crat contains a communication signed "Su garloaf," ir. which SherifT Snyder and my self are abused by the publisher of this piratical sheet, because we would not suffer him to rob us. Mr. Snyder and myself both went to Tate with our advertising ; and for an advertise ment amounting, by the square, to eight tlnllars, he charged me twenty-three dollars, and he also charged Sheriff Snyder forty two dollars for which he was only entitled to twenty-one dollars, hence the advertising by us in the Columbia County Republican. And because we would not allow him thus to levy black mail upon us, we are in the estimation of this unscrupulous rascal, not good Democrats! The communication in question charges us with supporting men for nominations who are accustomed to op pose the regular Democratic ticket. This is simply one of 2b te's oft told lies, got up for the express purpose of defeating men, who if elected would keep his ( laic's ) fist out of the County Treasury. I notice in the same sheet a sickly editor ial in regard to Mr. Lirrr.c, candidate for District Attorney, calling me his friend, fcc. Well, suppose this to be so ; Mr. LITTLE is a good Democrat, while on the other hand Tale's pet candidate for District Attorney, last fall canvassed the county for the pfir pose of defeating Mr. MCREYNOLDS for Con gress, receiving his pay in money from the Opposition, (and of which pay 1 believe Tale got a part.) Yours truly, DANIEL LEE. Bloomsburg, Aug. 22, 1859. I'. S. The Mormon Editor of the Derni er at will please copy this communication, in order that his fro readers in Sugarloaf may know the reason why Sheriff Snyder and myself do not patronise his advetising columns. D. L. C. B. TOWN AND Co.—We consider it a duty incumbent upon us to wart: the frater nity against a set of swindlers, sailing un der the above name. Some months since they sen*, us an advertisement of a paper they profess to publish at Nu 63 Baltimore St. Baltimore, entitled "Mason & Dixon's Line," asking its insertion in our columns, six months, for $12,00, payment to be made quarterly in advance, on receipt of first pa per containing advertisement; at the same asking an exchange. We placed them on our list and inserted their advertisement, im mediately forwarding them a marked copy, and, although we have since forwarded our paper regularly and written to them some four or five limes, we have never seen, or heard from either them, their paper, or our pay. They are a set of arrant impostors and should be severely dealt with. The next lime we go to Baltimore, if they don't prove to be myths, as we fear they are, we shall sue them for swindling. Will our editorial brethren do us the kindness to warn the fra ternity against the Swindlers. Pass them around.—Milton Democrat. TOIAATO WlNE.— This delictus vegetable, which inay be applied to so many purpos es, is very abundant at this time, more so, we think, than we have ever known them. The following is a recipe for making toma to wine, said to be equal to the best cham pagne : Take small ripe tomatoes, pick off the stems, put them into a tub, wash them clean, and then strain them through a linen bag. (One bushel will make five gallons of pure wine ) Add two and a half to three pounds loaf sugar to each gallon, then put into a cask and ferment, aud fix as you do raspberry wine. If two gallons of water be added to the five gallons of juice, it will still make a very nice wine. Brown sugar may be used instead of loaf, but the wine is much more sparkling when loaf sugar is used. The United States might export this wine by the ship loads. It is said to be a delightful beverage, equal to Heidsick. UNWOMANLY CRUELTY.— Some women liv ing in the town of South Bend, Indiana, re cently had their virtuous indignation aroused against a widow of loose morals. They took her, and stripped her, cut off her hair, and tarred and feathered her from head to foot! This in broad daylight, in the public street, and in full view of the crowd. The perpetrators of this sweet act were "mem bers of the Church" and married. The victim of their rage or jealousy, as soon as she escaped from the clutches of her per secutors, ran to the shop of a blacksmith near by, who received her, shut the door upon her pursuers, and furnished her with oil. &c., to remove the tar, and with clothing to hide her nakedness. SELLING INDIAN SOUAWS.— Horace Greeley writes from Big Sandy, Oregon, July 6th, that "white men with two or three squaws each are quite common throughout this re gion, and young and relatively comely In dian girls are bought from their fathers by white men as regularly and openly as Cir cassians at Constantinople. The usual range of prices is from $4O to 8410—about that of Indian horses. I hear it stated that, though all other trade may be dull, that in young squaws is always brisk on Green river and the North Platte." LOOK TO THB POTATOES. —Some of our ex changes notify us that the bugs are playing sad havoc with the potatoes, and in some instances whole patches have been eaten up, and others are seriously damaged. They also attack beats, cabbage and tomatoes. They are very destructive in some parts of Indiana. Our farmers had better examine their potatoes to see whether the enemy has made an attack upon them. The crop promises to be very fine unless injured by these pests or the rot. T" Don't forget the Delegate election on Saturday. It is important that this matter should be well attended to. DR. KENNEDY, of Roxbury, Mass., should answer our letters soon, and that satisfac torily, or else he will hear from us through a different channel than by letter. Proceedings of the Democratic Co. Convention.

Resolved, That the policy of the national administration both home and foreign, has been such as to commend it to the favor of the Democracy of every part of the Union, and that the promptness with which every great question has been met and snccess fully disposed of, is a sure guarantee that the interests of country will be carefully protected during the remainder ol the Presi dential term.

Resolved, That we are in favor of a revis ion of our present tariff laws, and an in crease of duties on coal, iron, wool and such other articles of Ameriean growth and manufacture, as suffer from Foreign compe- tition, and that in the adjustment of a tariff, it is both the right and the duty of Congress to make such discriminating as will ensure them a sufficient amount ol revenue to de fray the expenses of an economical admin istration ol the government, and avoid the necessity of a resort to loans and direct tax ation ; and at the same lime afford reasona ble and just protection to the American la bore and Manufacturer against unequal foreign competition ; and that this has ever been the policy of the Democratic party. Resolved, That the Hon. Richardson L. Wright, our candidate for Auditor General, and Hon. John Rowe, our candidate for Surveyor General, are both men eminently qualified for the positions for which they have been nominated, and that their known and unquestioned integrity and sound De mocracy entitle them to the support and confidence of every Democrat in the state. Resolved, That the course of our late Rep resentative in Congress, Hon, Paul Leidy, meets our unqualified approbation, and that his firm adherance to democratic principles and ardent devotien to the interests of his District, entitle him to our confidence.

We advise adventurers to await further developement." It would certainly be advisable. BLONDIN AT NIAGARA—ACCIDENTAL DEATH —Niagara Falls, August 18 —Mons.
