HOWELL. FOR CORONER, JACOB 11. FRITZ- Wright and Ruwc. These gentlemen—the Democratic nomi nees for Auditor and Surveyor General—are two of the purest and best men in the Com monwealth, and will be triumphantly elect ed over the arrogant Opposition this fall.— The respectable papers of every party in the Slate, speak of them in terms of praise—all, even iheir bitterest political en emies, freely admit that they stand before the people with character, both moral ami political, unstained by a single blemi-h.— Such men the people will always delight to honor. These men will honor the offices for which they are nominated instead of the offices honoring them. The Stale Conven tion exhibited its good sense and sound judgement in the nomination of these gen tlemen. They will be elected over their competitors by larger majorities than lias been witnessed, in our humble opinion, for a number of years. THE Democracy of our county have a ticket formed for their support this fall which cannot be defeated by the Opposition, although some of the Republicans are vain enough to think or at least assert tnat they can elect their ticket. They are boasting largely of their strength and good timber in this county. Qualifications are a very es sential point in the selection of men to fill our offices. This matter in the formation of our ticket has been attended to. A good ticket has been selected, one that an objec tion against canrot be made The men se lected as our candidates are good staunch Democrats; and the party have full confi dence in their integrity and fidelity. The ticket, from tup to bottom, is worthy and deserving of our hearty and undivided sup port, which it will, beyond a doubt, receive. Democrats, stick to the ticket, the whole ticket and nothing but the ticket, and the victory is ours. IT affords us great pleasure to note the improvement in the quality of the paper now made at the Mill of C. W. McKelvy & Co., at Cnttawissa, Pa. This mill has, not long since, undergone the most thorough repairs, introducing nearly all new machin ery, which run their 6lock of paper rather low at the time, but we believe in no in stance were their customers compelled to go elsewhere. The improvement in the newspaper of their late manufacture— of which this sheet is a specimen—is not infe rior to the best York State manufacture for newspaper purposes. There is also uniform ity in the stock that saves the pressman much vexation. For one, we can speak of this film as one of the most upright with whom we have ever had dealings. We have bought nearly all our paper of them, and have yet the first irregularity or devia tion from uprightness or promptness on their part to discover. PETERSONS' COUNTERFEIT DETECTOR is cor rected by the celebrated bankers, Drexel & Co., and it is certainly the most reliable De tector published in the Union. Everything is fair about il; that may bo known by the high standing of the publishers and editors. The latest iuformation is given of all counterfeit notes, broken banks, the rates of discount, &c. Every person in trade should subscribe to it and have a copy. The price is month ly, only one dollar a year; semi-monthly, two dollars. Address all orders to the pub lishers, T. B. Peterson & Bro's. Philadelphia, and our word for it, you will never regret it. A few months ago, it was fashionable for the organs of the Opposition party to re gale their readers with articles about the disaffection existing in the Democratic ranks and to season the feat with congratulatory paragraphs in regard to the perfect harmony in their own organization. But recently they have become remarkably quiet on this subject. We hear no more of their self congratulations ; but, on the contrary, their columns afford incontrovertible evidence that there is no longer any peace in the camp of their mongrel party. W E SEE it staled that the counties of North umberland and Snyder have concurred in the appointment of Hon. PAUL LEIDY, of Danville as Senatorial Delegate from this Senatorial District, to the next State Conven tion, to be held in March, 1860. This se cures the appointment for Mr. LEIDY— he being the choice of his own county and having the concurrence of two other coun ties. The appointment is satisfactorily, no doubt, to the entire Democracy of the Dis trict. • Our Next Governor. We find the following communication in the Harrisburg Patriot and Union strongly urging JJIE claims of JACOB FHY, our pres ent A General, for the next Governor of this Slate, which clearly meets our ap probation. The people of this Common wealth justly owe Mr. Fay a debt of grati tude, for no public officer has ever been more careful in taking care of their interests. The services ol such men as JACOB are too valuable to be lost.' He is eminently filled by education, by habit, and by expe rience to fill the highest office in the gift of the people of this Slate. His character for | honesty, uprightness and integrity is beyond reproach. He would make an excellent Governor, and be an honor to the Executive chair: MN. EDITOR: It is exceedingly important that the Democratic Convention next March, should nominate, for the office of Governor, some good and true man, around whom the parlv can rally unitedly, and for whom ev ery honest man in the parly can vote with out any sacrifice of conscience. The gross derelictions ol our present Governor will in , cline the people to look sharply to the per sonal merits of the man who is to take his place. If there be anything rotten or un clean in our candidate. I am sure that our Democratic people would rather suffer the mortification of a defeat at the polls, than submit, again, to the ignominy of seeing the Stale betrayed by a ruler ot their choos ing The issue of the Presidential contest hangs, too, upon the decision ot this State. Many good men will doubtless be present ed to the Convention, but among them, the man, who, it seems to me, is most strongly indicated as the proper candidate, both by the feeling with which the public regard | him, is JACOB FRY, Jr, our present Auditor | General, lie is an inflexibly honest man, j and the people know it. As a public officer | it is mild praise to say that he has never j had a superior in this Commonwealth. He I has administered the duties committed to j him with an eye single to the good of the State, and he has opposed, with all his | might, every scheme of plunder that has ! been hatched during his term of service. It ! would be hard to reckon the advantages I which the Commonwealth has reaped from his vigilance in the pursuit of dishonest debtors, and in the recovery of claims, long ! ago regarded as stale and worthless. For I these things he has never sought any praise. \ He is a plain blunt man—jus: such a man j as the people delight to honor. His popu- j larity throughout the State is probably great- j er to-day than that of any other man in the [ Democratic party. He has served in Con* j gress, where he was distinguished as one , of the most useful, industrious and incor- | ruptible members of that body, in which j these virtues, we all know, are not as com mon as they should be. To sum up his qualifications, he is ''honest and capable." These were the requisites which Mr. Jeffer son asked in a public officer, and compre hend everything. TKAFPE. Harrisburg, August 34, 1859. THE Opposition met in County Conven- lion on last Tuesday, between the hours of' one and two o'clock, i.t the Court House, at this place, and made a few County nomi nations. On motion the meeting was called to order and the following officers appoint ed : President, Dr. G. W. Lott, of Orangeville; Secretaries, Andrew Madison and John Hart man. The Convention then proceeded to the nomination of candidates. For Commissioner they nominated JOHN STALKY, of Greenwood ; for Treasurer ELL WOOD HUGHES, of Centre ; for Auditor, JAMES BARTON, jr., of Montour. Frank Stewart, Esq , Col. Joseph Paxton, William Neal, Dr. Palemon John, and Neat McCay, were appointed a commit tee to draft resolutions. The Committee retired to a ptivate room a short lime, and then came into the Convention with a string of resolutions denouncing, as a matter of course, everything that the Democratic par ty has cone, from the highest office down to the lowest, no matter how good it has been. They disapprove of every action that ' is Democratic, but point out no particular measures only that the affairs of State and County in the hands of Democrats are badlv managed. This is carrying out the sense and meaning of their name—Opposition—and > that is all. | In their estimation—only for talk sake— JAMES BUCHANAN has not done his duty, he ' is not carrying out principles and measures to suit them or for the good of the country. But who, that has been President of these United Stales, have they not said the same thing of; meaning Democratic Presidents? ft is (heir business, or at least they make it their business, to do this. JAMES BUCHANAN so far has made a pood President ; he has adjusted and settled affairs which have came under his attention ably and satis factorily and to the good of the country. They also find fault with our late mem ber of Congress, and our late members of Assembly. That is ail, they only find fault with them, simply because lltey are good Democrats. They cannot say one tvord in in condemnation of their acts—what they have done is all prefeclly right—but still they find fault with them. Thus goes the Opposition. Lack'a and Blooutsburg K R. Extension. Since last Thursday llie trains nil the Lack awanna and Bloomsburg Railroad have been running regularly from Kingston to Danville, making two trips a day. As the extension from Unperl to Danville is not yei ballasted, the trains run very slowly upon that portion of the road. This work was completed with vigor, involving as it did, an immense expenditure of labor and means. The first mile and a half from Ru port was much the most expensive portion of this division of ten miles, and for above one mile was made by removing the whole face of a precipice ol solid rock from twen ty-five to seventy-five leet in height, to ob tain room lor the roadbed. The work from its commencement in the prcliminuiy sur vey to its final completion and formal open ing, was finished in exactly nine month, a smalltime for a work of this magnitude. THE Montour Herat,t has changed hands again ; George B. Ayers having transfer red the establishment to Alba C. B. Fisher, a journeyman printer, formerly of the Demo crat office in Danville. We wish Mr. F. success, also the retiring editor in whatevor vocation he may be engaged. The Herald establishment, in our opinion, has not been a profitable one. Mr. F being a practical printer may change the receipts of the of fice very much. He has an excellent chance to exhibit his energy and ability. Arithmetic Against Principle. Not only is the Opposition divided in'.o J differmit factions, Wl each of these factions is co'ulsed by internal dissensions. In the Republican parly, which occupies the mas ter position, and regards the Americans and other organizations as floating fragments to be taken on board the political vessel for ballast, or thrown off according to conveni ence, is now divided between the coalition ists and the anti- coalitionists. The fromer are anxious for a union of all the elements of the Opposition, in such manner as to se cure a substantial Republican victory; while the latter are opposed to introducing a de basing alloy into the mental of pure Repub licanism, by combining with Americans or disaffected Democrats. The address recent ly issued by the Republican National Com mittee led oflf cn the side opposed to fusion, and counselled the raising of money, distri bution of books and phamplets, speech-ma king, and other appliances to prepare the Northern mind for a sectional issue in 1860 and for the support of a sectional candidate. Some growling follows this manifesto from the union-for the-sake-of the-spoils portion of the Republicans. This policy finds an earnest advocate in the New York Tribune, a paper that has less real affinity with any parly outside of the darkest shade of Republicans, and which does not hesitate to assail other branches of, the Opposition when policy does not dictate that they should be mollified by the most gracious and winning manners, than any other Republican organ in the country This paper has taken to the science of ar ithmetic, and after much laborious figuring has demonstrated conclusively that the Re publicans cannot elect the next President without they carry the States of Pennsvlva ia and New Jersey ; and furthermore, it is ascertained that the Republicans alone can not carry these two very necessary Stales j The conclusion is therefore at once otlain- ; ed, by the aid of patience and arithmetic, 1 that New Jersey and Pennsylvania must be | carried for the Republican candidate by the I combination ot the same elements which united last fall to return members to the House of Representatives. This arrange meut is conclusive with the Tribune, which supposes that it ought to be conclusive with everybody. And so it would if everybody would forget that there is some principle involved in a Presidential election, and start Irom the moral premise of the Tribune, that electing men to office is a matter of arithmetic. The Evening Post takes entirely different view of the question, and as a matter of in formation we re-publish the following por tion of an article on the circular ol the Na tional Republican Committee, from that most able and influential of Republican or- gans: It is well remarked in the circular that no party but the Republican can meet the evils wtought and projected by this formi dable power ; and we are pleased to see that the commiue have fallen into one of the prevailing silliness about the necessity of a coalition of the Republicans with other parlies. They simply recommend to the Re publicans to do their work, and not to look outside of themselves for assistance. Their objects are plain ; their principles decided ; and their policy, to be successful must be straightforward. No party can secure pub lic confidence which is perpetually shifting its positions or its alliances. If it does not maintain its own integrity with the most jealous caution, it will alienate its best friends and prove a laughing-stock to its enemies. When the old Democratic and Whig par ties were in existence the Democratic par ty was almost invariably victorious, and one great reason of its success was, that it adhered firmly to its organization and creed On the other hand, the Whig oarty wascon staidly undergoing transformations which left the peoble in doubt, often, as to its identity. When it succeeded it did so by accident mainly and not because it had really conquered the popular sentiment.— 'I he next year, perhaps, saw it unsuccess ful, and the immense majorites on which it had counted dwindled into the most mea gre minorities. The same fate would over take the Republican party il it should adopt the same short-sighted plan of operations. Parties which step aside from their direct path to pick up stragglers Irom other par ties, or to coucilitate other parties, common ly lose more than they gain. There is an instance of the fact now before us, brought out by the elfort which tome Republicans are making to produce a coalition with the Americans. It has given the alarm to the whole body ol German Republicans, so nu merous at the West, and to essential to an effective Republican movement. Abend- Zeitunp, of this city, publishes the substance of opinions given by Messrs, Slallo, of Ohio, Schurz, of Wisconsin, Knap, of New York, Koriier, of Illinois,Rusch,ot lowa,and others 110 less influential and distinguished,to the ef fect that Republicanism must keep its skirts free from any suspicion of Know-Nothing ism, il it would retain the warm support of the German masses. This, we presume, is true, and it should warn the active mana gers of the party that their only safe and wise course consists in a rigid adheience to its original plallorm. FIRE AT NORTHUMBERLAND, —Our citizens were alarmed, on Friday night, between 2 and 3 o'clock, witit the cry of fire. The "Good Intent," ot this place, was brought out, but it was evident that before the fire coul'l be reached, which was at Northum berland, C'l would be over, the engine was therefore put tack. The building consult ed was the grocery .store of Wm. Elliott, to which was attached the ticket office of the Northern Central Railroad. We regret to say that Mr. Elliott lost everything in the store, including his books, and about S4OO ill money besides all the tickets, &c., of the railroad. It was supposed to have been the work of an incendiary. Mr. Elliott's entire loss is about g2,000, with but a small insurance only on the building —Sunbury American. IV A stiff-necked old politician, living near Detroit, recently refused to allow his daughter to marry the man of her choice, because he "didn't vote die regular ticket." But the marriage took place in the parlor, while the old gentleman was holding a cau cus in his library. HON.

It is rather interest ing, and afiords Agricultural information, which could not be obtained elsewhere. Bolndon Again. Monsietff 13loudin did it again yesterday, with variations. That lie can do it is new a fixed fact, a foregone conclusion, and shuld he announce in his next programme that he would walk the rope on its under side as flies walk a ceiling, everybody would be lieve hup. The " Libcriau Slave" opera lion of yesterday was not, in itself, as exci ting or astonishing as some previous per egffflations. His shackles were not more burdensome than some we have seen upon free white woman at a fashionable party.— They consisted of a tin collar, tin wristlets, and anklets, we suppose we must call them all connected by tin chains more formida ble in appearance than in reality. His shackles may have weighed a pound or two. But they were appropriate to his character. He appeared as a " Liberian Slave." There are no slaves in Liberia.— Had he come on us a South Carolina nig ger, he would have been in duty bound to appear in solid and weighty shackles, like Longfellow's chap : '■Chained to the market place he stood, A man of giant fame." Thus accoutred, the Monsieur went out again upon the rflpe, and in the course of his "ascension," as they call it at the Falls, stood upon his head, suspended himself beneath the cable hanging by one arm, one leg, by the and swinging on his chqst, all of whictT Wits very comfortable to look upon. Having crossed to the Canada side, he re turned in his grand comic character of the "smart man who knows how to keep a hotel." His stove was a good-sized Russia iron arrangement, some two feet and a half long, and weighing with all the traps, some 56 pounds, a good load to carry. Midway the rope, he attached the stove to the cable, climod over it, started his fire, mixed his omelette, cooked it secundem nrlem, arid then lowered it away to the people on the Maid of the Mist, who scrambled and fought for fragments of it as a good Catholic would for a piece of the True Cross. formarice was over, he packed up his kit, shouldered it with a great deal of difficulty, and returned to the American side, having occupied 45 minutes in the passage. To stay three-quaafws of an hour on that dizzy rope is in itself a marvello us feat. Next Wednesday, at 8 o'clock in the ev ening, Blondin will cross tho rope suround ed by Bengal lights, in a blaze of glory The grounds are to be illumiated by loco motive lamps, furnished by the Central & Great Western railroad companies; which are practically partners with Blondon in his exhibitions. After all Blondin is a gen ius, and teaches his lessons like any other. He shows us what enfeebled, degenerate fellows we are, all for want of proper phy sical education. It is not quite necessary that we should bo skilled on the tight rope, but we have no business to be the feeble, helpless children we are in all difficult physical situations.— Buffalo Commercial. 1V THE Pittsburgh Post, which is sup posing lor the Democratic lioiftinatibu at "Charleston, took occasion, yesterday, to animadvert upon the present political conduct of Col. Forney and follow ers. A correspondent writing to the Post. laments that Judge Douglas, whom head mires, should be injured by Forney's friend ship, and remarks that "the friends of Mr. Douglas cannot serve him better than to wheel into support of the State ticket, in solid column—leaving Mr. Forney and his squad out, if he prefers it." Commenting upon this, tho Post remarks : "That Mr. Forney, one of his friends in Pennsylvania, does not support the State ticket this fall is a grievous fault in our eyes, and grievously will tie have to an swer it. Bui Mr. Douglas does not desire Mr Forney to be gratified, nor Mr. Buchan an "rebuded" by the defeat of the ticket this fall. # # # The friends of Douglas will'"support the State ticket as heartily as those of Mr. Buchanan. Both are working for the same object—the suc cess of the party in 1860." This is certainly wise and proper for Mr. Barr, who is a friend of Mr. Douglas and a Democrat. Mr. Douglas could not be more injured than by having the impression go throughout tho Union that his peculiar friends in Pennsylvania oppose the ticket upon the mere pretext that Col. Forney did not draw up the platform. Tho Democratic success in 1860 will probably depend upon the vote of Pennsylvania, and should Penn sylvania be lost this tall by a very large majority, it would be exceedingly diffi cult to overcome it next fall. The odium of this would rest upon Mr. Douglas. He feels this, and is accordingly shaping his course. He is drawing off from Forney and is earnestly advising his friends to sup port the ticket. He is leaving those foolish rebels, who make hostility to Mr. Buchanan a justification for opposi tion to the Demo cratic Party, to lie in the bed which they have prepared for themselves.— llarrisbu-g Patriot Holloway's Ointment nml Pills the best Hem • edies for the cure of Eemale Complaints.— The extroardinary effect these Pills have upon all complaints peculiarly incidental to females, would appear incredible to the citizens of the Union, if it were not con firmed daily hy the wonderful cures they effect in the various States.

Bound in Cloth, 3 00 itell. | A good instruction book for the Piano has long been wanting, ami Mr Ciiaiii.k* Gkobk litis performed lite labor, in gelling this one up in the most admirable J ami satisfactory mm ver. It will prove itsell one of the most valuable guides in the instruction of the art ol playitiing on the Piano. Considering the author's well known ca pacity, and long and unreriiiuiing devutiun to the task of elementary teaching, we have strong reason to hope that the public are now lobe furnished with a thorough, sys tematic, progressive, and entertaining meth od for lite Piano. We can confidently recommend it to teachers and pupils as belter adaptad to the purpeses 0 elementary instruction than any others with which we are acquainted. The plan pursued in this work is substan ttally the same as that developed in Ollen clroff's method of teaching languages. It commences with the simplest elements,— The progress tnade will be gradual, so that j every step will be perfectly imeligible, and be rendered of positive value to ttie pupil.— Every difficulty is met with single, and, al ter thorough analysis, overcome by praotice. This method will, undoubtedly, piovtde teachers witn a well digested, progressive, and entertains plan by which a sound und correct knowledge of itie art of playing the piano tnay be acquired with comparatively little labor, and in so short a space of time as will ulmn.-t seem incredible to those who have confined them-elves to sume of the te dious systems heretofore in use. This work contains ten engraved figures, illustrating the different positions nl the hande ami fingers ; and also a likeness of (he author. lis typographical accuracy and appear ance have never been equalled in any mu sical work that has heretofore been issued front the press in ibis or any other country. Copies will be sent by mail, free of poal age, on the receipt of the marked price. LKE & WALKER, Publishers, 722 Chestnut St. Ph'iadelphji. NEW AIUBROTYPK SALOON IN BLOOMSBURG.
