' "Tfic Btpnblkan Meeting,
The meeting of our Republican friends,
held in "this : place, on Thursday last, was
nothing to brag of in the way of display or
numbers, considering the exertions. used to
secure a large turn out of the faithful, and
in the way of spirit and enthusiasm, was
certainly a most lame and impottnt affair. It
might be proper to stylo this meeting "a
graad fizzle," but ia order that the partici
pant cr.y feed h:;;hijr elate J over it, as long
as possible, we will not do it. A good por
tion of the attendants were sound, faithful
and working Democrats, who had nothing
particularly to engage them upon that day,
hence they went to the meeting to see
"Andy'' and hear what he had to say. Had
this not been the ca:e their meeting would
have been beautifully small. The meeting
was organized by appointing Col. Joseph
Paxton, of Cattawissa, President, who soon
made, his appearance on the rostrum and
treated his auditors to a brief diatribe on
his -favorite theme "the tariff," slightly
coupled with "the everlasting nigger." The
Colonel's oratorical powers are not very
great, but what he knows he knows just a
well as anybody else and can tell it with as
much forceand meaning as any other stump
peaker. Some were uncharitable enough
to insinuate that lis remarks done more
harm than good. Ail we have to say, they
were received "wilt, a solemnity befitting a
funeral oration.
On the Colonel's making his bow and
taking his seat, net amid great applause
and enthusiastic' cheering, Dr. D. H. B.
Brower, of the Montour American, was call
ed upon to "fill up a small gap," who was
"prompt to the call," in his usual familiar
and easy style. He commenced by saying
that he did not rise to make a speech, but
to merely "fill up a small gap," which was
occasioned by the yet non appearance of
Mr. Curtin, and the briefness of the Presi
dent's speech. Besides telling his hearers
that this was a very important campaign,
he cited a few newspaper anecdotes, when
his "gap" was completely "filled," and be
6boved off the track.
He was followed by the wonld-be-Gover
nor. Akdrkw G. Ccrtin. Mr. Curtin's text
was the tariff, with a few slight variations.
upon which he dwelt long and learnedly.
Indeed, his mind 6eemed to be so exclu
sively " occupied with the subject of "pro
lection," that he forgot eutirely to enlighten
" bis audience as to how he stood on the
Chicago Platform " generally, and the
"Dutch Plank" in particular. This over
sight caused no doubt considerable fluttering
among his Republican brethern, who con
fidently expected him to come oat flat footed
for the Republican nominees and platform,
and some of whom it is raid called on him
after the meeting to "define bis position."
(We have reference to the meeting in the
afternoon, in particular, j AVhether he did
eo or not, we are pninformed; but for any
thins that was contained in his speech, it is
just as fair to icfer that he is lor Fell and
Everett as that he is for Lincoln and Ham
lial And this", no doubt, was exactly the
impression he wished to create; but we
apprehend he will discover that the politi
cal birds hereabouts areioo o!d to be caught
with iuch chaff. , Take it all together the
speech of Mr. Cvinv was rather a common
place aFair, using nothing higher than a
school-boy's argu ment remarkable for n.oth
ins save trie aexterity with which it dodged
unpleasant issues and; exceedingly char
acteristic of its eliaoerv author. Like its
predecessors, it fell as flat as a pancake and
failed to elicit a single hearty cheer Alto
rretner this meeting was one of the tamest
and most spiritless political gatherings ws
ever witnessed ; especially, for oae that so
much speculation was made about; and
afforded a sorry t'pecimen of the enthusiasm
which is taid to prevail, in favor of "Old
Abe" and 'Ha:idy Andy' in Manch old
Columbia. Onu thin2 we must say for
Mr. CorVin. ha treated our gallant candidate;
Henry D Fosti:b, with the respect of a
gentleman. r . , .,-
The evening of the 7th inst. should be rath
er a memorable Dne,as quite a large number
of disorganizing meetings were held by the
straight out Douglas men at that time.
Meetings were held in Reading, Easton,
Johnstown, and other places not fresh in
our memory at preent, npon that evening,
all favoring a bogus electoral ticket. R J.
Haldenjat" of spread-eagle notoriety, par
ticipated in the :seeting at Reading.- He is
laboring assiduously to make a wide breach
in the Democratic party upon the Presiden
tial question. Nothing would please Dick

""Z''s, Cnrtiir on the Stamp.
Andrkw G. 1 Ccrtin, the Republican can
didate for Governor has taken the stump in
behalf of himself and his desperate cause.
His first speech vaslelivered at Bloomfield,
befo'rs a vejy small meeting. Mr. Curtin,
in politics, has been "'everything by turns,
and nothing l"ng." He was first a Whig,then
a Know-Nothing, and now a full-blooded
Black Republican. Whether he approves
of the "Dutch plank" of the Chicago plat
form, he did not .inform us,, when here a
few days since, but we presume he will
enlighten the people on this point ere he
finishes his canvassing tour. He has, over
and over again, denounced the Germans
and Irish in unmeasured terms, but this
was when Know-Nolhingism had the sway,
and when it was fashionable for demagog
ues and corrupt politicians to speak re
proachfully of better men than themselves.
Mr. Curtin is a son of an Irishman a for
eigner but this did not deter him from ta
king the blasphemous Know-Nothing oath
"before God and the brethren assembled,"
to oppose and persecute all foreign citizens.
But, Know-Nothingism "busted up" the
weight ot its own corruption was too much
for it, and down it went with the hiss of
an indignant people in the ears of its fol
lowers. Andrew G. Ccrtix got out of . the
wreck and from among the rubbish as best
he could. But, after a few months of exile,
at the head of Salt River, he and hi3 guilty
and condemned coadjutors again appear
upon the political stage, to attempt once
more to deceive and gull the people. The
"dark lanterns" are stowed away, and the
"brethren" no longer use the "pass-word"
and "grip." As they march along in sol
emn procession, with down cast looks, be
traying guilt and meanness, a black banner
can bfl seen at the head of the motley crew,
one side of which bep.TS the inscription
People's art," and the otha-sidc 'Rails.'
The People's Party, indeed ! a party made
of condemned political demagogues, with
Abe Lincoln, the Abolitionist, at the head,
and Andy Curtin, the Irish Know Nothing
at the tail A beautiful crew truly, to style
hemselves the " People's Party." The
peoplethe honest yeomanry will, at the
polls, administer to them a thrashing, that
will leach them not to take their name in
vain again in a hurry.
When Andy Cuktin attempts to enlight
en the people as to their duly next October,
they should Vequire him to define his po-
silion. Let him now say whether he is sun
hostile to the "ignorant Dutch and Irish,"
as he was w int to call them whether he
approves of
khe "Dutch plank" of the Chi
cago Convention and whether he endor
ses LincolnPs opinion that ."this country
must be all free or all slave." Let him ex
plain, too, why it was that he went to Chi
cago lor the! purpose of working against Mr.
Seward, and assisting to defeat his nomina
tion. The people want to hear him on
these subjects they desire to know his
present views. The Harnsburg lelegraph,
the Republican organ at the seat of Govern
ment, says rCol. Curtin is out-spoken and
desires to conceal nothing." V ery well ;
then he should, of course, enlighten the
people on the subjects we have hinted at
If he don't soon do it, however, Gen. Foster,
the honored son of the "Star of the West,"
wilt be after him with a sharp slick, and
compel him to define his position or beg
fjor quarters. A few volleys from the elo
quent Foster, will put to flight the Militia
Colonel and his motley crew of negro wor
shippers. Mark it !
Action of the State Central Committee.
The Democratic Stale Central Committee
met pursuant to adjournment, at Cres?on, on
ThursJay last, the 9th inst , and agreed up
on a fair basis of Compromise and concilia
tion, which cannot fail to prove acceptable
to all who desire the success of the Demo
cratic party, and the defeat of the common
enemy the Black Republicans. Want of
room prevents us from laing before our
readers the full proceedings of this Execu
tive Committee. .The proposition, as adopt
ed by a vote of 49 yeas to 22 nays, is nearly,
if not the same, as was proposed by the
se eral sound Democratic prints some weeks
since. The following is the proposition :
Resolved, That the Democratic Electoral
ticket be beaded with the name of Douglas
or Breckinridge as an Elector at large, and
in the event of the success of said ticket, if
a greater number shall have been cast fer
Douglas, then the vote of the Electoral Col
lege of the State shall be cast for Douglas
and Johnson, but if for Breckinridge, Then
for Breckinridge and Lace. It the vote of
Pennsylvania cannot elect the candidates
for whom the majority of votes are cast,
and can elect any man running for Presi
dent, claiming to be a Democrat, then the
vote of the Electoral College shall be cast
for that candidate ; if it will not elect either
of the Democrats for whom it was cast, or
any of the Democrats who are voted for in
the Slates, then the vote shall be cast for
the candidate who has the majority of the
votes of the State, and the Chairman of this
Committee be requested to obtain from the
Electors their several and distinct pledges of
acquiescence in the foregoing resolution,
and report the result of this action at a
future meeting of the Committee.
The Committee then adjourned,witb three
cheers for the ticket.
Coffee, Tea and Sugar These little
items of lamily expenses amount to a vast
sum every year. The United Slates Treas
ury Department reports that for the year
1859, the ira ports of these articles amounted
to the ioilowing sums: Tea, 67,50,000;
coffee, 825,100,00''.; . sugar, $30,000,600.
The importation of molasses is valued at
$5,000,000. How many bushels of wheat,
rye, corn, oals, &c, does it take to pay the
little grocery bill ? '

' Tlie Massacre in -Syria.-. - ; : -
The following letter was read at the Month
ly Concert ot Prayer for Missions, in Prov
idence, R. I., on the 4th iuet - :
Beirut Syria, Thursday, June 28, 1860
My Dear Sit You have doubtless heard
of the horrible massacres -that have just
been perpetrated upon the poor Christians
of Mount Lebanon by the Druses, aided in
some cades by Turkish soldiery.
A few facts may give you an adequate
idea of the present state of things in Syria.
The American missionaries have estimated
the loss sustained by the Christians at 10,-500-
and that of the Druses about 7,200.
The inhabitants of the Christian towns ot
Deir il"Komr and Hasleeiya were brutally
slaughtered in cold .blood, after a full sur
render had been made. Thirty or forty
convents have been plundered and burned,
and the monks were put to death, some of
whom were French. Nearly oce hundred
villages have been burned, and the crops of
the peasantry destroyed. Many churches
also have been burned among them the
Ameiican Mission Chapel at Hasleeiya, and
the schoolhouse at Deir il Komr.
The facts are enough to 6trike the civil
ized world with horror ; but there is yet
something to be told. It is believed that
not less that sixty thousand Christians an
now homeless and starving, and have no
other hope for subsistence than the charity
of the Christian world ! More than 5,000
fugitives have been supported by the con
suls, missionaries, merchants and convents
of Beirut ; but this is only a temporary ar
rangement. Something must be done for
the starving, homeless thousands who are
now hiding in caves and other secret places
until peace shall be declared. Beirut is no
longer a place of safety for Christians. Mos
lem fanaticism is now fully aroused, and the
Turkish Government has found it necessary
to elation a platoon of soldiers in ever? !
consul's house lor their protectiont . Thou
sands of the Christian refugees, and large
numbers of the native residents have fled
the country. Indeed, the land is full of
misery and the deepest woe.
American missionaries., aided by the
guards from the American Consulate, have
brought away many poor, besieged and per
secuted Christians, whose lives have been
thus preserved ; and the English vessels of
war have picked up about 2000 fugitives,
many wounded women and children, who
had escaped to the 6ea coast, and there is
still work for them to do.
What can be done in the United Slates
for these famishing widows and orphans ? I
will say nothing now ot vengeance, for ihe
European Powers will no doubt exact jus
tice for this great crime ; but humanity calls
upon me not only to distribnte bread to the
crowds around my house, but to present
their cause to my countrymen, and to arouse
their sympathies in behalf of this persecu
ted people.
The King of Greece has sent a sum of
money for the present relief, and efforts are
being made elsewhere to collect money for
that object. America sent food to Ireland
and to Greece, and will not something be
done for the Christians of Syria ? ;
Rev. Francis Watland, D. D.
Black Eepnblican Clerk.
In the proceedings of the Democratic State
Committee at Cresson, an incident occurred
which exhibited in the most striking man
ner the feeelings of tne Democracy of this
State in refereuce to this arch traitor In
the course of the discussion upon the sev
eral proportions before the Committee, Mr.
Johnson, of Cambria, known as the close
political and personal friend of Gen. Foster,
our gallant standard bearer in the guberna
torial contest, and also as a supporter of
Douglas, opened a battery of the most vio
lent denunciation of the political fraud and
chicanery now being attempted to be prac
ticed by John W. Forney. He referred to
him as a Black Republican traitor, whom
no Democrat, (no matter what his prefer
ences.) did not despise from his innermost
soul, and declared that for himself, he
spurned his impudent assumptions to speak
in behalf of the wing of the party to which
he belonged, and utterly repudiated any
and all fellowship with him in his wicked
and base designs. These remarks called
forth the most terrific shouts of applause,
and for the moment the proceedings of the
Committee gave way to a deafening out
burst ot scornlul indignation of the uncov
ered demagogue. If he could ouly have
been present at this assemblage of the rep
resentatives ot the Democracy, he would
have quailed before the storm of contempt
and derision that was showered upon him.
He has talked boldly ot his friends in the
Stale Committee, but this outburst found
"none so poor to do him reverence." It
was the unerring and unmistakable senti
ment of Pennsylvania's Democracy, and it
is the rebuke for which he has been so long
waiting. Will he lake this kick, and go
over to the Black Republican camp, to
which he belongs 1Pennsylvanian.
Lincoln's Tariff Views. Before Con
gress adjourned, a distinguished member ot
the United States Senate sent a copy of the
Morrill Tariff bill to Abraham Lincoln, with
the request that he would give it his en
dorsement and return it. It was desirable
to place him right upon Ihe record so far as
Pennsylvania's interests are concerned, but
he was not disposed to be thus caught. He
has not been heard from' since upon the
subject, and, we suppose, intends to keep
the bill iu his pocket until after the election.
Can the Republican papers tell us why Mr.
Lincoln don't endorse the Tariff measure
which the Republicans think is necessary
to ihe saltation of the country t
. Foa Sehator. We will state that Col.
Keller is a candidate for renomination for
State Senator. There will in all probability
be no other candidate, and Mr. Keller will
get a unanimous renomination in this coun
ty. Selm's Gt ove Times.

: Letter to Andrsff G. Cnrtia.
Mr.: Curtin. As you are now a promi
nent candidate before the people of this
Commonwealth for the- highest office the
people o! a sovereign State alone can confer
and as you doubtless desire every man in
the State to vole for you for Governor, I
take this seasonable occasion to give you, as
we'd as the public, my reasons why I can
not and will not vote for you. When you
was Secretary of this Commonwealth, a cir
cumstance occurred in Bellefonte, the place
where you reside, showing satisfactorily to
my mind that you possess too malicious a
spirit to fill, with any creditable degree of
dignity, the honorable position of Governor
over a free, civilized and enlightened peo
ple. The circumstance was one of too se-
rious a nature to be lost; and as I told you
then, that I would on some future occasion
remind you of it, I shall now proceed to do
so without the fear of your rkvolveb in my
1 will here first state that I am only a poor
man, and by my profession am a huckster.
At the lime above referred to,I came to Bel
le fonte on business. I had an excellent dog
with me to guard my wagon. A number of
boys began teasing the dog by running at
him ; and some we.it - so far as to throw
stones at him. Sp on as the dog would
defend himself against these unjust attacks,
the ungodly boys ran into the houses ; but
no sooner had the dog again returned to his
wagon, than the boys would also return and
repeat the insult. Among these boys was
the son of A. G. Curtin, who, being a little
tardy in reaching the house, was caught by
the dog at the leg of his pantaloons. The
dog was at once recalled and tied in the
stable belonging to the hotel, so as to pre
vent the boys from teasing him. Soon after
that you came to me and asked me whether
it was my dog that caught your boy. I
told you that you should keep a Millie cool,'
and I would explain the matter ; but you
would not hear me, and walked off greatly
excited, and returned with a revolver in
your hand and a crowd following you. You
walked up to me and drew your revolver
and said : You dam Dutch son-of-a-
your G d G d Dutch Son-of-a- b h's
That, Mr. Cortin, was ray introduction to
our Secretary of State ! It was a loud and
sirong introduction : and I must say 1 never
had an introduction to any official gentle
man (1) 1 so well remember.
You then turned to the poor dog and shot
him three times, and said you had "another
ball left for me."
The subscriber is ready at any time, when
called upon, to verify . these statements by
good and reputable citizens who were pres
ent and witnessed the scene.
These, then, Mr. Curtin, are some of my
reasons why I really and honestly think you
ate unfit to be the" head of a free, Dutch
and sovereign people.Iike lhat of Pennsyl
vania. "You seem to have a very contempt
ible opinion of Dutchmen ; but allow me,
Sir, to tell you that the Dutchmen of Penn
sylvania will 6hpwyoti by next October that
they have an equally contemptible opinion
of you. They will shoot yon, not with re
volvers, but with something more efleciual
and honorable paper balls !
Middleburg, Pa., August 6 1860.
Meeting at Danville.
The handbills staled that the meeting
would be held at 2 o'clock p. m. at the Court
House. We wended our way thither at the
appointed time, but finding no person there
and no signs of a meeting, we eirolleJ to
wards the "Rough & Ready" mill, where
a crowd of men and boys were engaged in
erecting a Lincoln and Hamlin pole, which,
we discovered was rotten at the core, prob
ably emblematic of the principles of the
party. After ihis was got. through with, the
crowd were invited into the mill, which by
the way was turned into Republican head
quarters. Judge Kelly was not "thar," and
Col. Curtin merely stating that he would
speak in the evening, slipped out of the
crowd, and left the "rising statesman of
Pennsylvania," Simon P. Kase, to mount
the Stump, who endeavored to enlist enthu
siasm, for their cause by enquiring in thril
ling tones of his body guard, the "Wide
Awakes," whether they were about. No
respjnte came up from ihe promiscuous
crowd. Again, he shouted at the top of
his lungs, "Wide Awake's were are you ?"
and as there was still no reponse, we con
cluded they wasn't wide awake, and he no
doubt felt that he had got among a sleepy
crowd. However be endeavored to wake
them up by discharging a large quantity of
words, containing but little sense, which
fell upon his audience like a shower of
rain, and with about the same effect, for in
a few minutes, the crowd commenced to
disperse leaving the speaker alone in his
glory. hittUigencer. .
Rope Walking for a Gobi) Purpose. Mr
John Stickell, a native of Antrim township,
Washington county,-Md., a carpenter by
occupation, was engaged in building a mill
for Mr. John Cushwa. The building, a
brick structure, was up to the square ; a
number of neighbors perhaps several hun
dred had collected to assist in raising tim
bers ; a rope was stretched across the build
ing, near the middle, for some purpose or
other ; Mr. Siickell was on the wall near the
one end of the rope, and a young man in his
employ was on the wall at the opposite side
of the building, at the other end ot the
rope ; the ycung man fell, and, in falling,
caught the rope, but was not able to raise
himself and if some person had not hasten
ed to his relief, he would have fallen sixty
two feet, into the cog pit over which he
was suspended. The crowd who witnessed
the young man's peril seemed paralyzed.
Mr. Stickell's attention was directed to
the young man's dangerous situation by the
murmur of awe from tho?e below him,
when, without a balance pole, he fearlessly
walked the entire length of the rope, over
the sixty feet, and rescued the young roan
front an awful fate, amid ibe raptnrous
shouts of all present. . -This was rope walk-
Mr. Editor:
Perhaps you are aware lhat on
ihe 9ih inst., the Republican party made a
grand demonstration of its strr iiglh, by hold
ing a meeting at this place. Unless your
especial attention had teen, called to the
subject, it would not have occurred to yon,
as no.hina but a few flags across the street
gave evidence that the great "People's par
ty of Columbia County" had assembled in
its might. I admit that h was a grand de-monsfration-bil
of its Weakness.
But I wish to call your attention only lo
the meeting in the evening I was proc
ceeding leasurly down Market street, when
hearing some person screaming as if in
distress, I hastily proceeded to the Court
House, when I saw Mr. Frank Stewart of
Berwick on the stand, who, besides being
author of the noise, was gesticulating vio
lently As the gentleman in question had
been particularly merry during the day, I
doubted not but this was caused by the
same agents, and was strengthened in my
opinion by the incoherency ol his remarks,
and the number of boys present. But lo !
upor. investigation, I found lhat he was ad
dressing the Republican club I II is impos
sible to give you an idea of the substance
of the speech, (as I must now call it) as
there was none in it. It so resembled .the
incoherent ravings of a madman that no
ideas could be gained from it. Yet this
man is considered the Republican leader in
this County was a delegate to Chicago
and is strongly spoken of as a candidate for
State Senator. To strengthen his claims,
after weeks of indefatigable labor, he suc
ceeded in getting a few Republicans, and
quite a number of Democrats from Berwick,
to attend the mass meeting as it was called.
He would be a fit representative of a party
which boasts of immaculate purity ! If he
is a true representative, corruption has a fit
Even the "Many Republicans" in a com
munication in last week's Republican, had
not the barefacedness to assert lhat among
his other qualifications he possessed honesty.
As to the "depth of his political knowledge"
I may mention by way of illustration, that
he is the man said to have asserted in 1856
"that the slave holder had one vote for
every slave in his possession."
Simon Peter Case, the Danville orator,
produced a decided impression lhat of
drowsiness like Peter of old, he has denied
his master at the crow'ms of a cock. Peace
be to his political ashes ! Me will soon
meet with "a recompense of reward, given
by a party composed of kindred spirits.
Col. Curtin, endeavored in vain to ex
cite enthusiasm. He conjured up his ste
reotyped anecdotes about Buchanan, but
the ladies merely blushed while ihe boys
laughed. Such was the conclusion of the
"grand demonstration" which was to call
the "farmer from his plow, the rnachanic
from his workshop etc."
Western Sentimext. The meeting of
the State Committee at Cresson was atten
ded by a large number of Democrats from
the surrounding country. A vender of
Douglas and Breckiiridse medals, with a
keen eye to business, appeared upon the
ground, well stocked with both kinds. In
less than two hours he had sold every
Breckinridge medal, whilst he had not dis
posed of one fourth of the Douglas kind.
This result, be it remembered, was in a
