Democratic [Nominations.
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.
tion—Vov. LI. No. I.—for July has been re

teresting and instructive. It contains an
immense amount of reading of that charac

The contents of the present number are as
follows:—State of the Navy ; The Acropolis
of Athens; Memoirs of the Court of George
IV.; Life and Remains of Douglas Jerrold ;
Fossil Footprints; Queen Marie Antoinette;
Dr. Cnreton's Syriac Gospels; Brialmont's

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.

They will no doubt be of interest to our

Democracy can place abiding confidence,

this is done the Democratic party very sel

For the Star of the North-
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.

in order that his fro readers in Sugarloaf

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
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.
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.

Saturday. It is important that this matter
should be well attended to.

a different channel than by letter.
