NO JOURNAL wiil be issued next

jeient, though our non-paying, subscrib
j ers may not,) reason is that we have no
paper to print it upon, and no money to
buy it with. We dislike to dun our pat
rons at apy time, and particularly iu hard
i times, but nothing but money or paper
! rags will buy paper, and we cannot be
j expected to pay "out cash endlessly with
jout there is some income. We have al
ready made every reasonable effort to
avoid dunning our subscriber?, but the
time has now come when forbearance i*
no longer s virtue. We have some five
:or six hundred dollars scattered over the
i county, and would like very much to have
• some of it now. Will not some of our
j subscribers couic to our aid immediately?
; Those who cannot raise money will dorr
ja great favor by sending us grain, pota

j and an investigation of its affairs com
menced. Its biiis are worthless. The
Weekly Press ; in an editorial on the suh
j ject, says:
i There is too much reason for bcliev
: ing that the forthcoming report of the
investigation into the affairs of the Bank
of Pennsylvania will disclose a mass of
| corruption and mismanagement in that
institution, which will vividly recall the
: days of the broken Bank of the United
1 States. There seems to be but one opin
ion on the subject. Hopes are entertained
i that the noteholders and depositors will
be paid ; but the stockholders, the wid

ded their fortunes to the bauk, will not
'be so fortunate. Many reflections will be

BSaT'fhe Lecture of Ilty. C. M. BLAKE,
before the Coudersport Library Associa
tion ou Saturday evening last, was a learn
ed and logical aud all who heard it
speak of it iu terms of highest commend-,
and bad LitcratunTof (he day, and argued j
that the pressure iu the money market
would result iu a great benefit to book;
readers, inasmuch as it would reduce the j
quantity of books improve the quali-j
Tycffhosc ia the market. He briefly;
reviewed the literature of the day, and;
gave the younger portion of his aqdienpe
sqmc healthy advice ia regard to the se
| lection of reading matter. He also took j
a firm groucd in favqr cf the consoiida-1
ti ou of American Magazine literature, and
; . 1
a concentration of American genius. We
cordially endorse his believ
ing that the litsiary genius of our nation
has been too wide spread to be properly
appreciated. But we fear that Yankee
enterprise will never submit to so great a
chepk as the concentration of its sphere
of action in the publishing trade.
We jjsfened with pleasure to the en
! j-ire lecture, and will bo pleased to pub
lish it in our pjvr, if wa ewn prevail on
the Kev. gentleman to furuiah it for that
The audience wss pretty large for the
evening, there being a heavy ryiu ail the
afternoon and evening. Altogether flic
| occasion was flattering to the prqspeets
(of the Association, and we hope will
i awaken a new interest in its behalf in our
} '
\ reading community.
Buchanan and Free Kansas.
| In view of Buchanan's retention of
Judges Cato and Lecompteon the Bench
J of Kansas, and of his letter to Professor
-jSilliruan and others, in which he asscrtes
; that Slavery already exists in that Ter
ritory under the Constitution of the
United Spates; it is amusing to see the
j Buchanan press in Republican counties.
,claiming that person as favoring the for
mation of a Free State. We shall esteem
'it a great favor if any person who pre
tends to believe this, will just name a
single act of the President that has been
'iqnthe side of Freedom and justice in
1 that Territory. The retention of Judges
" ; Lecomptc and Cato, and every appoiut
"! ment made has aided t!;e Border Ruffians.
R Governor Walker himself, bv throwing
r . .
J | the apportionment of the Territory into
the hands of the Bogus officials, and his
! 1 r •
' activity in the Kiekapoo fraud, did all
. that he well could to throw the Territory
' into the hands oi the Border Ruffians ;
but because he would not receive the
' purely fictitious returns from Oxford pre
'jcinct and MeGee county, it is claimed
'(that President Buchanan has favored the
' Free State cause in Kansas. If there is
' I a single yoter who can read English, dull
enough to he deceived by such logic, we
think he is entitled to much sypipa
' thy. If the President desires to aid the
Flee State men in Kansas, or if lie in
■ tends to do them simple justice, why
don't he dismiss Judge Cato, who is
: using his judicial power to con,pel YV lak
er to recognize the Oxfurd fraud and give
certificates to the Border Ruffians whom
t; that fraud would elect ? Why don't he
approve of Walker's refusal to coynten
■ t anee that fictitious return 1 Can the War
' ren halyer tell ?
The simple truth is, Ficedom has tri
umphed in Kansas in spite of the efforts
of the Administration to crush it. In
spite of the Cinoiquati Platform party,
* that has removed every Governor the iuo
ment he refuses to do all the dirty work
of the Slave Power, and that will renicve
; It. J. Walker, because of his refusal to
i damn himself with endorsing the Oxford
swindle. And yet, after Walker has
been killed for his one act of simple jus
tice, the Free Kansas Buchanan men will
• continue to shout, great is the service
. done to Freedom by the parly. Such
servility is simply contemptible.
The rk'flions.
The official majority pf Gov. Chase, in
Ohio, is 1503.
The vote in Minnesota leaves matters
.jn doubt yet, with Ramsey, Republican,

! didate. Great efforts will be made by the
. j friends of t}ie latter to manufacture su(£-
cionf jnajoritics in the backwoods qouu
i t}PS to overcome this.
Jn lowa, the official majority of Lowe,
the Republican candidate for Governor, is
2338. The Republican majority in the
State Senate is 8; in the Rouse 10.
The elections came off on Tuesday,
Nov. 3, in the States of New York, Mas
sachusetts, Maryland, Wisconsin and
In New York, the Republican State
ticket is defeated by from 10,000 to
115,000 majority, while we have a small
majority in the Legislature. Seven of
the twelve Judges of the Supreme Court
elected arc Republicans; among them
Martin Grover, of the Allegany district.
. In Massachusetts there is the greatest
triumph of the year. N. P. Banks,
[against whom there were three leading
candidates, is elected by a plurality ot
[23,703 oyer Gardner, his highest com
jpctitor. The Republicans of Massachu
setts haye crowned themselves with glory

on the Suite ticket with Mr. Banks who
are all elected by majorities of a thousand
or two less than his arc; Eliphalet Trask

ditor; Moses Tenny, jr., of Georgetown,

cillors we Republicans. The Senate'
(complete) stands, Republicans, 33;
Democrats, 4; Americans,3. The House
stands 166 Banks, 34 Gardner, and 36
Democrats. Nine districts to hear from.
Wisconsin is said, at latest dates, to
' bare elected Republican Bute officers and
t' Legislature, by from three to five thou
sand majority. We hope the good news
! i is true.

Leessful, with less than usual,

What is Democracy?
f; The lion. WM. ALIEN, formerly U. 8.
JjSeflato* from Ohio, gives the following
! answer Jo this question. It is eloquent
J and just:
s i "Domocracy is a sentiment not to be
'■( appalled, corrupted or compromised. It
e' knows no baseness, it cowers to no
e ! ger, it oppresses no weakness Fearless,
igenerous and humane, it rebukes the ar
' j rogant, cherishes honor, and sympathises
with the humble. It asks nothing but
a what is right, Destructive only to des
i-!potism, it is the sole consevator of liberty,
1V labor and property. It is the law of na
ture pervading the law of the land. The
i stupid, the selfish and the base in spirit.
! may denounce it as a vulgar thing ; but
s ;in the history of our race, the Democrat
;-! ic principle lias developed and illustrated
, i the highest moral and intellectual attrib
i utes of our nature. Yes, that is a nobie,
7 j magnanimous, and sublime sentiment,
" which expands our affections, enlarges
s | the circle of our sympathies, and elevates
J - the sqr,! of man, untjl claiming an cquai-
with the best, herejeets, as unworthy
juf his dignity, any political Immunities
' over the iiuuiblost of his followers."
r ; We cut the above from a late Clin
ton Democrat. We have published this
I noble definition of Democracy several
"j times before, but it is so refreshing to re
b i call sqch sentiments as compared with the
; Dred Scott decision Democracy, that we
cannot publish it too often.
The Democrat must presume on the
*! dullness of its readers, or it would not give
•them this description of genuine Democ
racy, while it defends and supports the
Democracy which sustains such doctrines
"las the following. The Democrat goes
" i hand in hand with the following papers
1 land their sentiments :
I WHITE SLAVERY.— The Richmond
* i Enquirer, a leadiug Buchanan paper in
- Virginia, uses the following language:
"Until recently, the defense of slavery
has labored under great difficulties, be
; oause iu apologists ( for they were merely
b j apologists) took half-way grounds. They
l j Confined the defense of slavery U mere
, negro slavery, thereby giving up the priu
_ ciple, admitting other forms of slavery to
. be wrong.
"The lino of defence, however, is now
' changed, The south uow maintains that
J slavery is right, natural and necessary,
l and does not depend upon the difference
s j of complexion. The laws of the slave
! states justify the holding of white men in
i Again a loading South Carolina Bu
r' | chanau paper says :
J "Slavery is the natural and normal
|condition of the laboring man, whether
: white or black. The great evil of nortli
;cm free society is, that it is burdened
with a servile class of mechanics and la
borers, unfit for self government, and yet
clothed with the attributes and powers of
5 pitijens. Master and slave is a relation
in society as natural and necessary as that
of parent and ehijd; and the northern
states will yet havp to introduce it.
"j "We repent, theq. that policy and liu
" manity alike forbid the extension of the
- 1 evils of free society to new people and
looming generations,
"T\yo opposite and conflicting forms of
j society cannot, among civilized men, eo
", exist and endure, 'i he one must give
M way and cease tp exisL the other become
j universal. If free society be unnatural,
'immoral, unghristian, it must fall, and
give way to a slave society—a system old
as the \yorld, universal as man."
j The Muauqgpe (Ala.) Herald x another
I yaliant Buchanan organ says :
i, "Free society Iwe sicken at the name.
, I What is it but a conglomeration of greasy
'mechanics, filthy operatives, |small-tixted
,| farmers, and mpon-struck thenvists? All
i the northern a'id especially the No\y Ri'S
land states are deyuid of society fitted for
i well-bred gentlemen. The prevailing
class one meets with is that of mechanics
'struggling to he genteel, and small i'arm
'jers who do their o*u drudgery, aqd yet
who are hardly fit for assoeiatton with a
:; southern gentleman's body servant. This
is your free society which the northern j
j hordes are endeavoring to extend into
; Kansas."
i The Richmond (Ya.) Examiner, an
other Buchanan paper, uses the following
. language:
"We have got to hating everything'
with the prefix free, from free negroes!
idown and up through the whole cata
logue—free farms, free labor, free society,
| free will, tree thinking, free children, and t
' tree school—all belonging to the same
'brood of damnable isms. Rut the worst!
:of all abominations is the modern system
of free schools, which has been the'eause
aqd pruUfio sciurce of the infidelity and
• treasons that have turned her cities into
j Sodoins and Gomorrahs, and her land in-!
the nestling places of howling Bedlam- ■
itcs. We abominate tho system because 1
the schools are free."
m e ■ .+
THE GreensLurg (Pa.) Herald informs ,
us that Mr. J.NO. H. HOOPES, Assistant
Editor of that paper, lias been obliged to
1 retire for A SMI#CC from the ohair editorial,
■ on account of a severe spinal and neural
i gic affection, wliich jhas paralyzed his
