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

cus in his library.

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

| 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.
