A few Words to the "Rump" Correspondent
of this Paper.
We feel a kindly interest in the
young gentleman, whoever he may
be, who, over the signature of "Pro
bono publico? wrote the "Rump"
account of the proceedings ot the
Democratic County Convention.
We 6ay to him, that he is allowing
himself to get into bad habits of
thinking and writing. lie is
doubtless well known, in the com
munity, and has friends of respec
table standing. It is evident from
the classical style and title under
which he writes, that, at some re
mote period, ne naa access to a
book of "familiar latin flotations"
with accompanying translations.
It is probable that he went to week
day and sabbath School, and was
'on general principles," brought up
in the fear and admonition of the
Lord. It is important that all this
uuro auu leacmng snouia not be
thrown away. If we can recall
him from error, and "pluck him as
a Drana irom the burning," the con
sciousness of a good act will be
our ample reward.
First, then, we would call his at
tention to the fact, that all his
friends will know, as soon as . they
read his article on a "packed" con
vention, that he has (not to put too
fine a point on it) been drawing
upon his imagination to a great
er extent than a strict regard to
truth and fair dealing would allow.
Now, this is not right, and we doubt
not they will say to him that it is
not creditable to his training; that
he can not win public confidence,
nor extend his influence among
good men, by indulging in that
style of political warfare. It they
have failed to remind him of this,
we hope he will not take it un
kindly, if we perform that office
mere are no laurels to be won in
that field. It is easy to write in
that way; and grows easier rap
idly to put it in Shakespeare's
language "it is as easy as lieing" in
fact, it is about the same thing.
Yet even a tallent for lieing, may
indicate the existence of the imag
inative faculty in such a degree, as
u lurnea into a proper channel,
might be made useful to the pub
lic, and honorable to the possessor.
Tho fact that he signs himself Sec
rotary "for the public good", evin
ces a latent Eense of duty shows
that he recognizes the fact that
every man is in duty bound to use
his talents for the public benefit.
We hope this "secretary" will turn
hi3 attention to legitimate argu
ment and discussion. If he don't
like "butternuts," let him, with
whatever ability he has, expose the
falsity of their positions, the tolly
or wickedness of their conduct,
and the unsoundness of their po
litical principles. Here is field
enough lor his exertions, if they be
in any degree deserving of the
contempt with which he speaks of
them. We invite him .to the
work and let him fail or win, he
will, at least, deserve the credit of
having met the foe in honorable
combat; not the disgrace of hav
ing been a political "bushwhacker."
We don't insist that his style
must ' be grave and his matter
heavy. By no means. LethimbeJ
witty (if he can;J let him be spicy
(if he can;) let him indulge in rail
lery, irony, sarcasm, to the extent
of his ability. These, when used,
not abused, are valuable weapons
in aid of truth. . '
We don't object even to a rough
handling of an opponent occasion
ally ,so that 'it be done fairly on
the square with no "foul holds'"
and with no undue advantage at
tack your opponents bravely, and
fight them, if you . please, with
"gloves off" but don't strike in the
back, and, above all, state facts,
when you know them, and when
you don't, wait till you get them. '
The Abolitionists in a Stew about
the Irish.
The redoubtable "Rump" corres
pondent of the Record 6eems hurt
by the resolution of sympathy with
the Irish cause, passed at the Dem
ocratic County Convention.
We can understand his feelings.
If the resolutions had been sym
pathetic toward the negro, his feel
ings would not have been hurt at
But when the Irishman is talked
about, this 'Rump' correspondent
can't see it. 'Cause why ? 'Cause,
he's white, and, therefore, ain't 'a
man and a brother.'

broth of a boy a 'sweet scented'
He wiggles and waggles, and
through about two dreary columns,
'like a wounded snake, drags his
slow length along.'
He squirms terribly.
Because his party wants the Irish
vote. The Radicals are losing their
old friends so fast, they are in a
big hurry to catch a few new
He quotes 'cheap resolutions' in
troduced for that purpose, by his
congressional friends.
His own guilty conscience, then,
impels him to charge the Demo
crats with trying to buy the Irish
vote by 'cheap resolutions.' '
Is that, intended for a go-ak' and
does he charge extra for it ?
The Irish are democrats, gener
ally speaking, and if any body
wants to buy their votes it must be

is me aoonuonists.
They have been trying it. in
what they thought a very smart
way, and they wanted us to keep
That's why the 'Rump' corres
pondent don't like our resolutions.
But the Irish are not in the mar
ket. These abolitionists made this
great mistake. .They thought all
people were like themselves, ready
to be bought.
But, in thinking so, they were
badly sold sold for jast what they
are worth nothing at all !
The Irish are noble people.
They are brave, enthusiastic, imag
inative, generous. Eloquence,
song, valor have flourished grandly
in Ireland. Down trodden, op
pressed, and enslaved for lo! these
many years, she has still maintained
her unquenchable love of liberty.
Oppressed by a nation of tra
ders and an aristocracy of wealth

Irish people naturally hate parties
who favor class legislation, and
'strong governments' in which the
powerful and rich flourish at the
expense of the poorconsequently,

The "Rump" Correspondent's Account
of the Democratic Convention.
In last week's issue of this paper, ap
pears a communication from a member of
the opposite party, in relation to the Dem
ocratic County Convention. He signs hlm-
self "Secretary pro bono publico." If it
be good for the public to feed on foul inu
endo, and glanderous insinuations, and ma
licious and premeditated misrepresenta
tion?, then he wag secretary "for tho pub
lic good"; but if it be good for the people
to hear a fair, unvarnished talo of truth,
then he wrote for the public hurt.
Now, which did he do ?
He might have been a hundred miles
away, on the day of the Convention, and
have written the same article, and wlih
just as much foundation to work upon.
He does not know what lie says about
the "pocking of the convention" to be true;
and he know that he don't know it to be
true. ' :
Yet he states it, without qualification, at
Did he do that for the public good f "I
We defy him to give, to the public, for
its "good," or for any other j)urpose,any
evidence of what he states, as to the "pack
lng" oi that convention. He hna no evl-i.
dencef he knows it, and he knew tt.vhn
he wrote the article. Did be, them .write
It for the "public good ?" Is it pari of the
"Rump policy" the .Radical. system to
lie. ror "the public good" r '
We believe it Is!
The "Secretary" is an apt scholar. He
talks glibly about "packing conventions,"
"laying Jhe ropes," "puMa . the -wires
&&, &c. . It It because be. is lamiUat, iVom
prBotlce, with the nomenchrtnre -of -ttrc
Radical "liuiui" of which he forniB a part?
We believe it Is. ;
We presume it is as natural for him to
talk of such things, as tor a burglar to talk
of "piping the lob," Ac, &c. That they are
the "terms of nls trade," constitutes the
only imaginable excuse for him. We give
him, freely, the benetlt of It.
We may say, in passing, that if the con
vention was "packed," It wns packed well
packed with good material. t
Tho Secretary showed an intent to find
fault; even to intent faults when be couldn't
find any. Yet he can't And or Invent (un
less his inventions were so palpable ns that
they must inevitably return to plague the
Inventor) many faults In the candidates.

cular, charged dishonesty and corruption,
so squarely, upon these very men.

We arc willing to admit that they are

And, necessarily, it can be shown that
they have not, always, done precisely right.

The "Rump" Pow-wow at the
Court House.
On Monday night last after lhe 'Ramp
County Convention.had passed away, a few
ol the faithful had become 'ardent' in their
spirits over that affair persuaded the very
modest and reluctant (7) Geneial Groavenor
of Athens Co, (who happened accidentally(l)
in town) to make a speech. He spoke.
Doubtless he wished he hadn't after he
was through. Re has not got bis 'piece,
for the campaign, arranged and committted
yet. So, he was not as 'fluent' as bis friends
would have liked. Still, considering that
it was the first gui of the campaign, and
that it was unexpectedly touched off, it' fired
away tery well. Grosveaor is a pleasant
gentleman, and fot the most pait, an easy
talker it is, a pity he dont know much
thai is about politics. His sharp sentences,
commonly known as "clap trap'' intended
to catch the ear of 'groundlings' and to
'bring down the house' were not recited
very glibly, for the reasons above stated.
They will doubtless go off more smoothly
after a few rehearsals. He closed up with
an eloquent figure of speech, entirely new
to the stump, we believe -in which he com
pared the government, to a' ship, caught In
a storm, and strugling with 'angry billows
He deserves great credit for this conceit. '
After the General was through, and the
clappings 'usual on such occasions had sub.
sided, John P. Plyley, Judge of the Com
mon Fleas in this district,, was called for.
After considerable solicitation, he Judge
was induced to get up, and deliver his 'opin
ion' all things considered Mr. Plyley does
quite well on the bench, but be is physically
aod mentally incapacitated for public polit
leal discussion. He does not argue, 'be' de
cides. He speaks as though be would say,
'I am Sir Oracle, when I open my. mouth
let no dog baik' and we think that dog
which persisted in barking either didn't un
derstand, or was unwilling to 'accept ' the
situation' Judge Plyley s reference to Gen
eral Le Fever, our Candidate for Secretary
of State, only lacked one element ofbeing
crushingly. severe that was truth. Le Fe
ver never resigned and never shirked. ' The
Judge might have found a better illustration
nearer at hand, in the person of his friend
Grosvenor, who is as unpopular with the
soldiers, as any General need desire- ,

Mr. , Jones r made another molon,
viz: that tlierebe a committee up
on 'credentials appointed which
was accordingly done. But this
master spirit, after a short consul
tation with the tkhowing ones, dis
covered that he had committed a
faxti pas that it would never do,
to depend upon ' holding the con
vention, with only regularly elec
ted, and properly accredited dele
gates; that would give 'a beggarly
show of empty seats,' and leave too
many' townships out. in the cold
so Mr. Jone3 made another motion,
to the effect, that any person
present,' might represent any
townships which had failed to send
up delegates. This, was agreed to
by a vote of three in the' affirma
tive. and no one voting against the
proposition. But; the dignified
chairman, of the 'committee -on
credentials, was so deeply engaged
in , calling for ; credentials from
townships, from which there was
no delegates to respond, to his
mournful cry, that he did not per
ceive the trick, or attempt to. cov
er up the fact, that about one third
of the townships in the county
were not represented in that con
vention by any authorized dele
gates: consequently, after conclu
ding his fruitless labors to 'draw
blood, from a stone' the. dignified
chairman, attempted to report tho
doings of his committee to the con
vention but the chair of the con
vention; failed to recognize the
gentleman. (It may be that, as
the committeeman is a new-comer
in these parts, that the chairman
did not know him or was waiting
for an introduction.) Uut the dig
nified chairman from the commit
tee on credentials would not 'give
it up ! so' he . evidently believed
with Mazeppa, 'That . one refusal's
no rebuff,' and persevered in his
effort to make the .convention hear
his report, until, some better posted
lnaiviaual, made the gentleman
understand that the convention did
not desire any report from his com
mittee. They had only been an
pointed for the, sake of form; and
the convention had long since, pn
the motion of Mr. Jones, performed
the labor, usually.allotted to his,
committee. '(The innocent commit

now;; you will have the ticket,

ties tho others must, 'tarry,, till
their , beards . grow longer.? ..'All
went merry as a marriaee feast'
until they came to select a candidate
for County commissioner -For this
offlcey there wre leyen or.cijjat
candidates announced. When all
at once, 'like a clap of thunder lrom
a cleat-sky' the' convention was set
aghast by a delegate from Brown
Township jumping to his feet and
announcing that there was a bridge
broken down in Brown Township! I
and that there was a man in Brown
Township, who had had hie leg
broken 1 1 'and' continued the' dele-
gate'fromBr6wn'If you do not
nominate our candidate for Com-
missioner I pledge every vote in
Brown for Mr. McGee, the demo
cratic candidate; we know,him to
be a good man, and we are deter
mined to have a commissioner from
Brown.' Mr. Jones asked the del
egate from Brown if they failed to
get their candidate, if they would
not support the balance of the
ticket To which the undaunted
delegate from Brown replied We
"Then there wns a hurrvlng to and fro,
Some srrew pale, and others red,
But plain it was, nil were mad."
Coh Phillips and Capt Fry, made
a desperate effect to save the Union
of the convention by compromise;
and proposed to throw overboard
all the other candidates, some tix
or seven in number, and nominate
the candidate from Browri by accla
mation But the late Captain Jones
was big with a speech, and an in
stinctive dread least 6ome rebel
should get a controlling power over
some person, place or thing and
that would neVer do as a precedent
in a 'Union' convention; and not
withstanding the chair, had deci
ded Mr. P.'s compromise out of or
der, on tho principle that 'Union'
men can not compromise with reb
els in 'arms.' Mr. Jones was al
lowed to deliver himself of his
speech. Whereupon one of the
delegates lrom Brown attempted to
reply, but the chair had by this
time discovered that there was no
motion before the house, and that
all debate was out of order. Once
more the compromising spirit of
the Madison delegation was
brought to play; and a motion was
made to allow the delegate from
Brown to reply, which was carried.
But the delegate from Brown said
the convention had allowed Mr
Jones 'to pitch into them, and wherJ
he ouered to reply, he had been
choaTced down, and now he would
not reply, and so he sat down to
pout', and the convention proceed
ed to ballot. Whe,n the time came
for Brown to vote the tellers made
repeated calls, loud and long for
Brown. But Brown was in the
sulks, and would not answer the
call. But the result of the ballot
showed that rebellious Browm. had
carried, and soaied the convention
into nominating their candidate.
Thus demonstrating that even Reb
els have some rights, which Aboli
tionists aro bound to respect. It
is said that 'straws show the course
of the wind.' What a contrast be
tween this convention, and that of
the Democracy, held last week.
Here, after all the boasting, and
loud talk about the enthusiasm and
harmony in the Abolition ranks,
we find a want of interest, and a
backwardness in many of the Town
ships, to such an extent, that they
actually failed to pay any attention
to the call for a; convention, or to
send any delegates to represent
them, and Tom, Dick and Harry,
who happened by accident to be
present, have to be pressed into
the service in order to, give the ap
pearance of a County convention.
How was it with the Democratic
convention held the week before ?
Every township was fully represen
ted, to the utmost capacity that the
basis of representation would al
low under the call, and' so great
was the harmony, that the opposi
tion thought, or pretended to think
the convention was ( packed. But
gentlemen the people are aroused.
They have heard enough of Union
from the lips, while the heart , and
actions show nothing but disunion.
revolution, and hatred to the gov
ernment of oui Fathers. You will
conclude, gentlemen, that the poll
boxes have been packed by the same
hands, this fall.'
Have courage, Democrats; our
enemies, and those of the govern
ment 1 are demoralized, and their
forces scattered; a brighter day is
dawning, and soon again, you will
see the old , Ship of State The
Constitution proudly ; ride the
wave, defying the storm of Aboli
tion wind and Secession thunder,
with a Democratic crew from Cap
tain to Cabin-boy, then and not till
then may we look for peace and
prosperity, throughout the length
and breadth of this whole land.
