Resolved, That the Democratic Electoral Ticket be headed with the name of Stephen A. Douglas or John C. Breckinridge, as an Elector at large, anJ in the event of the suc cess of said ticket, if the greater number of votes shall have been cast for Stephen A. Donglas, then the vote of the Electoral Col lege of the State shall be cast for Stephen A. Douglas and Herschel V. Johnson for President and Yice President, bnt if for John C. Breckinridge, then for John C. Breckinridge and Joseph Lane for the same offices. If the vote of Pennsylvania cannot elect the candidates (or whom a majority ol the votes are cast, and it can elect any man running for the office of President of the United States, claiming to be a Democrat, then the vote of the Electoral College shali be cast for that candidate. If it will not elect of the Democrats for whom it is cast, or any of the Democrats who are voted for in tbe States, then the vote shall be cast for the candidate who has the majority of the Totes of the Si ate ; and that the Chairman of thin Committee be instructed to obtain from the gentlemen on the Democratic Electoral ticket of this State their several and distinct pledges of acquiescence in the foregoing resolution, and to report the result of his action in the premises at the next meeting of the Committee. Pole Raisins. The friends of Breckinridge, Lake and Foster, erected on last Saturday afternoon, between the hours of five and 6ix o'clock, in Ea6t Bloomsburg, near the residence of Mr. Henry Wanich, a magnificent hickory pole, not much short of one hundred feet in length, with a streamer on the top, and a plendid flag bearing the names of Breck inridge, Lame and Foster, our gallant Democratic nominees. Quite a large and respectable number of Democrats partici pated in this raising, considering the little notice that was given. It was not publish ed by large flaming hand bills or otherwise, that such a demonstration Hfcas to be made, tut still the gathering would not have fallen much short ia numbers of that of the Re publican Mass Meeting held in this place not long since. We understand that this demonstration was gotten up by the work ingmen of Bloom Furnace and that vicinity. Everything was well arranged, and the pole raised quite handily, notwithstanding it being an uncommon heavy one for its length. - After the pole was planted three round cheers were given for the candidates whose names were inscribed on the flag, when CoL L. I Tate was called upon, who made some very appropriate remarks on the po litical questions of the day. He was after wards followed bf John G. Freeze, Esq., who chanced to come by on his return from a-TM-tlitial canvassing tour. He rose in his buggy and dealt out to the Republican par ty some pretty hard hits, not forgetting to pay Mr. Cnrtin and his supporters a few left-handed compliments in relation to the tariff, and thereby fully establishing the fact that Mr. Foster is, and always has been, a tariff man an advocate of a judicious tariff and Mr. Ccrtih only a trafficking preten-1 der, a maa who has been pitch-forked into public notoriety, like many others of his dais of men, by the Know-Nothing organi zation of 1S54. The speaker was frequent ly interrupted by out-bursts of applause. We had almost forgotten to mention that there was a sufficient number of Democrat ic ladies present to set to flight half the Re pabiicaa'worsbippers in this place. .Montour County ConieBtion. . Xu9 veiegaies eiecieu iu iec5cui uo Democratic party in Montour county, met in Convention on Monday last, at the -Court House in Danville, and placed in nomina tion a ticket to be supported by the Demo cratic party of that county at the ensuing election. Tbe Convention was called to order, and proceeded to business, by the appointing of Job Shearer, President, al ter which the delegates ot tbe different "districts presented their credentials and were admitted to seats. '. , . On motion the Convention proceeded to the appointment of Conferees: Wm. Mc Ninch and Hiram A. Child were appointed Congressional Conferees; Wm. A. Dean 'and Hiram Antrem, Senatorial ; Adam Ger- ringer and Robert Davidson, Representative; to meet similar Conferees, of the several counties in Conference for the purpose of forraing our District tickets. ' The following nominations were made by acclamation : Eor Senator, Dr. L. F. Cald well; Prothonotary, Geo. D. Butler ; Trea surer, . Edward Morrison; Commissioner, John Mc Williams ; Auditor, William Blee. The nominations were all made with a good deal of unanimity. Everything seemed to pass off harmoniously. , PrrtMOs's MACitraa for September is already rwceived, with the usual variety of fashionable plates and illustrations, of inter est and usefulness to the ladies, besides being: well filled with choice reading mat ter. It is an excellent publication, and of-f-rsd very cheap 52 pr annum. Send 9 Bell and Everett Meeting. There will be a meeting of the friends of Ball anil Everett held in the Court House at this place on Wednesday evening the 29th inst., to which men of all political or ganizations are invited. It is not under stood positively whowill address the meet ing; but from the number of speakers an nounced on their haud-bills, as enlisted in the cause of Bell and Everett, the occasion will not be without one or more able orators. The names of Hon Henry M. Fuller, David Paul Brown, Esq., Hon Joseph R. I ngersoll, James W. Burns, Esq , and many others of equal ability and celebrity, apjear on the hand-bills, ready to discuss the political topics of the day. No doubt but this Mass Meeting will be more largely attended than was the "Republican Mass Meeting'7 held at this place on the 9th, although this party commandsabout the same strength through out this State that the Fillmore party did in 1856. They may carry one or two Slates; but they have not the slightest chance of carrying States sufficient to interfere with the election of John C. Breckinridge to the next Presidency of these Un'ied Slates. A meeting will be held in Catlawissa on Thursday, the day following the meeting in this place. . . Tnc State Fair. The advertisement for the next State Fair to be held on the Wyoming Battle grounds, on the 25ih, 26th, 27th and 28th of Septem ber, appears in to-day's Star, by which it will be seen that the Society are making active preparations for their coming annual exhibition. The Wilkesbarre Union, in re fering to the doings of the Society, says : "In addition to the present buildings they invite proposals for the erection of such oth er Saloons, Sec, as will beyond doubt ac cornmadate the vast concourse of people from all parts of this and adjoining States who will be in attendance. It is now con ceded, we believe, on all hands, that the State Society acted wisely in their selection of the 6ite for this year's Fair. The histor ic interest that cluster round the very snot on which the exhibiiioa will be held the unrivaled beauty and attractiveness of our Valley the productive wealth that lines the whole course of the Susquehanna its accessibility by Railroad, and the desire on the part of almost everybody to visit this region, will form at once a combination of attractions that will fill the Fair Grounds throughout the whole exhibition." The Lvzerne Union, a strong Douglas paper, and the leading organ in Luzerne county, in speaking of the action of the State Executive Committee and it compro mise, saj8 : ''We note the fact that many Demo crats in this section approve the action of the Committee. It the party then, unitedly accept this compromise, we have, in our view, but one plain duly to perform, and the State of Pennsylvania will carry Henrt D. Foster triumphantly into the Guberna torial Chair, and when that shall have been done, it will end the possibility of electing Abrara Lincoln to the Presidency. The first duty of every Democrat now is to stop quar reling with his brother Democrat, and go to work for the defeat of the common enemy. Enough time has been lost in the adjust ment of our own quarrels let them now be considered as ended forever. We have another chance at the fanaticisms of the day another battle is to be fought on tbe field of the Union, for the preservation of its integrity and the perpetuity of true consti tutional principles. A victory now in this State will arrest the march of the legions of error, and one way or the other result in the vindication of national principles. We may now, if we will, arise like a giant from slumber, refreshed and invigorated, and with banners blazins with victory, assert and maintain our position at the helm of the government." Abolitionism. We never knew an aboli tionist that was not a tyrant in nis own family, or anions those over whom he had control. We never knew an abolitionist, that did not strain bis mental vision, to du cover cruelty "way down south," when he could not see the suffering at his own door We never knew an abolitionist who would treat a negro with anything like fraternal regard, alter be had enticed him from his master. Look now, at Lowell and Lynn, and throughout the east, which has been for years, the hot-bed of that hopeless fanati cism. Witness the present conflict between these abolitionists and their slaves. Thirty thousand sons aud daughters of toil are on a strike, for a fair compensation for their labor, which is denied to them by those who would spend large sums to import the "darkies from the south." Their white brelherc around them are "guilty of a skin, colored as their own," and therefore they can not do anything for them. But if a "nigger" 6hould come along to lecture on the wrongs of his race, they would flock to bis standard and sasuin and encourage him by every effort ... : ! The Pittsburg Post, the leading Douglas organ in Western Pennsylvania, endorses the action of the Committee, in speaking of the plan of Union adopted, says : "We shall sustain it, because it will give a united vote in Pennsjlvania for the Dem ocratic cause. We shall sustain it, because it leaves to the people themselves the source of all power the solution of the dif ficulties which have arisen. We shall Bus tain it, because we believe it will bring out the largest Democratic vote vhich the State of Pennsylvania ever cast in a Presidential election. . And above all, we shall sustain it as the best means of showing to the coun try and the enemies of Mr. Douglas the strength which he has in tbe hearts of the people of the Keystone State. . We have no doubt that the "are a few extremists on both sides, to whom this compromise will be doubtful. Let them bury their pride of opinion and personal preferences, and go in heart and nana lor tne common cause of Democratic success in the paiga." , , corning cam- The annual Agricultural Fair of Clinton county, will be held at Lock Haven, on the Accident. at Danville. - ... . , We learn from various sources, that an accident happened at Danville, on Wednes-. day last, by the breaking down of a Bridge,' which crossed he Canal at Mill Strpet, but no serious injuries were sustained. The bridge was laden with from four to five hundred people of all ages and sizes, brought together for the purpose of witnessing a feat of wire-walking by one James Carr, who had crossed the Canal from one house top to another upon a slender wire, and was about to perform some ground and lofty tumbling on the Bridge for an afterpiece, when the Bridge gave way and precipitated the whole mass into the Canal among the broken timbers. All were rescued, and but few received any iniury. It caused the wildest kind of excitement for a fchort time Some of the smaller ones came near drown ing, and it was only with prompt medical assistance that they were resuscitated. The Bridge was newly erected but a short time ago, and supposed to be very substantial, but the weight which was upon it proved to be too heavy. Disunion. Much has been said of the disunion proclivities of Mr. Yancey, and every occasion possible is taken by Doca las organs, to misrepresent him, and hold the Breckinridge party in the South respon sible for there misrepresentations. Now people who live in glass houses should not throw stones. The record of Herschel V. Johnson, the Douglas nominee for Yice President, proves him to have been a no ted disuniouist a few years 6ince. He vio lently assailed Union men and Union meas ure, and absolutely earned great reputation and notority throughout the Southern Con federacy. The friends of Breckinridge and Lans challenge their opponents to point to a single disunion sentiment ever uttered by either of those gentlemen. Possibly no two public men throughout this broad coun try have so clear and patriotic a record, in ibis respect, as they have ; and it must be indeed an unholy business for any set of men to create a belief to the contrary. The Lincoln Bull Burted! An en thusiastic Black Republican, living at Bath, in this county, purchased a plump little Bull, a short time since, which, he announ ced, he was feeding up for a grand barba cue and jollification after Lincoln's election. His Bullship was put in the best pasture, and thrived prodigiously until the news rerched Bath that the Democracy of Penn sylvania, through their State Committee, had agreed upon a Union ticket, when, like the party that was preparing him for a feast, he bursted and gave up the ghost. His loss so grieved his friends that a meeting was held in the vicinity on Saturday last, at which a Mr. Cressman and a certain young man from this Borough, acted as chief mourners. Alas ! poor Black Republican party, the fate of the Bull but foreshadows your end. While Billy Koch's Bull lived, he lived in clover, And when he died, he died all over. Easton Sentinel. Badly Cut Up. The Opposition are just now divided into two intensely nosme ..a.... 1 . I wings the one supporting Lincoln and the other Ball, for President. All the old Know Nothings who still believe in the doctrines of the defunct party, are for Bell. Ex-Preai dent Fillmore is about to stump New York State for Bell. Crittenden, of Kentucky, is about to do the same in that State. In Phil adelDhia. the Bell men have nominated a 1 full Citv Ticket, and have already put forth candidates in three of the five Districts. Hon. Edward King, an able man, is the nominee in the first ; H. M. Fuller, in the second ; and J. B. Robinson in the fourth The friends of Bell calculate on polling 100, 000 votes in this State, which will be am ply sufficient to beat the Rail-spliiter. The hotice that we have quoted below is from an Opposition paper, and is an hon est confession that speaks favorably for our candidate. Henry D. Foster: 'He is one of the most amiable, genial, kind-hearted and unpretending of men ; and withal an honorable gentleman in the no blest sense of the word. Although a fine lawyer, of subtle intellect, and persuasive speech, he is modest and unambitious to a fault. He has not an enemy in the world, and his friends adore him. We know stead fast Republicans who cherish for "Harry Foster" a personal friendship as stron any of his Democratic adherents." as The North Branch Democrat, a Douglas paper, speaks as follows: "Tbe Republican papers, with Forney's guerilla Press at the head, are loud in their condemnation of the compromise proposed by the Democratic State Committee. This fact should be noticed, and caaaly dwelt up on by the true Democracy of the Common wealth. The masses of the party should not fail to give tneir cordial adhesion to the action of the State Committee in its efforts to preserve the integrity of the Democratic party of Pennsylvania." A heavy thunder storm visited Philadel phia, on Monday of last week, and owing to the great quantity of water that fell, the sewers were too small to carry it off, and in consequence the streets and pavements were overflowed and cellars were filled, re sulting in great damage to property. At several points culverts fell in carrying with them the railroad tracks, and causing great alarm to the resident occupants of houses in the vicinity.
