WELSH, SAM TEL MAN EE R, ISAAC BECK, .JAMES RAMSEY, A. (I. BLACKFORD, A. WENTZ, A NTH ON Y DRESSENBERG. JOHN RIEMAN, KILL!AN SMALL. Old .Mother Cumberland. Ciy"The Democrats of this County al*o_made their j nomination* last week, having selected for their caii : didates the very he*t men in their ranks. The. fol i lowing is a portion of their resolutions: Resolvi d, That the passage of the law by the ia*f legislature, commonlv known as the "jug law," is calculated to increase rather than abate the evils of intemperance. Alter the people had decided against prohibition, it was a stretch . .f pou-er in the Legislature to disregard the peo ple's pinion: and, whilst we most earnestly ap prove of temperance and sobrietv, we are at the .-..one time opposed to the "jug law." and think said law should he w ip.-d from the stutue ■ books. Resolved, That we hail with hope and' joy j tlie- recent brilliant victories of" the Democratic partv in the States t f Virginia, Tennessee, N. (Carolina, Alabama, lowa and Texas, believing thai these overwhelming victories are but a pre ; hide ol others soon to be achieved in our own j and other States. Resolved, That we continue to have undi , minished confidence in the patriotism, integri ty and Democracy of President Pierce and those i composing hi* administration. The economical j manner he has conducted the affairs ofgovrrn j merit since his induction into office, is evidence j of his sagacity and statesmanship. Resolved, That the act of our last State Leg ! islature, increasing the members' pay from 300 to §3OO for the session, was an outrage upon ! the people, and as dishonest as it was outrage ous. We demand the repeal of said acf, and, in j the event of the election of Messrs. Harper ec Anderson, instruct I hem to vote for its repeal.— None but Know Nothing legislators would ever have dared thus to attempt to rob the people. Resolved, That we urge upon our Democra tic brethren of this county, the importance and necessity of an eatly organization. To oppose successfully a party (hat concerts its schemes in ; the dark and burrows under the earth, we must be lully organized, and prepared to stand shoul der to shoulder in defence of the Constitution and law s. ResMved, That we have full confidence in the Democratic nominee for Canal Commission-j j er. the Hon. Arnold Blumer, and shall yield i ; him our hearty support. j .! 7'tn: K. N. TICKET. —The representatives of j the different K. N. Councils, met in secret con- j clave at Hnrrisonvilie, i ■ Friday last, and pla ted the following Ticket in nomination : ASSEMBLY WRN. W. KIRK, of Bethel. Commissioner — J. B. ALEXANDER, Wells. Auditor—Jon FISHER, Bethel. If the gentlemen accept the empty honor ol j being defeated by the Democracy this fall, we ; shall have something, to say of each of fh<-u:.— ' • Messrs. Kirk and Fisher have heretofore be ' longed to the Democratic Party, and by their. nomination hv the Know-Nothings it is sought j i to break down and divide the parts in old Beth- ; ej. We as- ure our Know-Nollnng friends that ; they are slightly mistaken in their calculations j —the sterling Democracy of IK-thel will not ; sell their birthright for a 'mess of pottage.' Mr. j Kirk is by far the most unpopular and obnoxious man in the Township, and bus repeatedly been defeated for small township offices. He will be most soundly 11) cashed at home in the [.re sent canvas*. He has for years been a stand-j ing candidate lor office, and having been dis j appointed he seeks to vent his spleen on his former friends. We are sorry for the man, and ; are satisfied that he will live to regret his. pre sent conduct. His apostacy will not break ■ down the Democratic. Party—he cannot injure it, but will rather add strength to it, by leav ing it—but it will most effectually and certain jly use him. up. Mark our words! The true Democracy of this County have been fighting RENEGADES for some years, and have have always signally triumphed, as ! they will over this unholy combination. P. S. We have been informed that Mr. Fish er was nominated without I;is knowledge or consent, and that he has no fellowship with the woman-burning crew. We hope for his sake that this is true.— Fulton Democrat. • A Shark upwards of seven feet long and weighing between three and four hundred pounds, was caught in tfi" lower Bay of New i ork on Saturday last. From the Raleigh Standard. THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. Never has the democratic party occupied so proud and so reponsible a position as at present. Great in its principles, great in its actions, and great in its results, it has heretofore been called 1 to battle against an open, bold, and independent 1 enemy, and one that claimed its respect; but now it i* opposed by a party (if we may call it a party) that attempt to overthrow the freedom ' of the elective franchise, and hind us deluded victims by solemn oaths to become the slaves of its leaders—a party that aims to subvert religi ous as well as political freedom, and to set up in their stead bigotry and intolerance, thus flv -1 ing full in the tace of the constitution and total -1 ly disregarding that instrument, the very lileof ' the I'riion, and without which the I nicn would he a burden ami a curse—a party that makes falsehood, prevarication, and deception tiie chief requisites for membership, and lays its ' I very foundations in the exclusion of truth—a | party that appeals only to the prejudices and evil passions of our nature, and has not one en nobling quality in its whole composition—a par ity secret in its oppositions, concocting its schemes in the night, thoroughly organized arid powerful for evil, guided as it is by uuscrupu- i • lous, reckless, broken-down politicians and des perate office-seekers, who have staked all their i hopes ol personal aggrandizement in the move ment, and would rather reign over the ruins of our republic than serve in its entire fabric—a partv whose members are fired by its leaders j with a fanaticism such as disgraced mankind in j the darkest period of the dark ages, and the re* ( suits ol Which have already begun to manifest# themselves in bloody riots and devastating con flagrations—a partv that has elevated none la office in the free States but abolitionists of the darkest dye, and has found its greatest strength i:i the Slave States in the sections w here free soil ism has taken root— a party that is one thing in Massachusetts, another in Louisiana, another in Georgia, and still another in North Carolina, with as many shades and hues of col-j oring as can be found between black and white, and all united on but two points the ojficAt , and the spoils. j This i* the piebald, hybrid combination against which tfie democratic [tarty is called to clo bat tle fortlle preservation of our constitution and ! the right* guaranteed by it. We trust it will he equal to the emergency, for we beli-we the: hopes of liberty now hang u[>on it. A large.! proportion of northern* democrats have a I way I* been sound arid conservative, while northern : • whigs (now know-nothing*) have long been rot-* , ten to the core. Cur friends there have f • i prnstrateilheneath the wheels of this worse than Juggernaut car, hut they will rise again, and j the "sober second thought" will unite with them thousands of honest and duped men. We do not believe that the indomitable democra cy ot Pennsylvania and New Hampshire will ever again he beaten down. Whiggery stun ' nui the ears of our people with a tornado of ex citement in IS 10. and dazzled their eyes with the glare of military glory in ISfS. ami in each instance acquired u brief supremacy, more dis astrous to it than its defeats. Thus w ill it he with know-nothingism. Once in power, as in Massachusetts, it will disgust all honest, liglit ! minded mm, and its very success will work its j destruction. j Do not dispairof the Fnion. Democracy ; [ has placed it upon its foundations so firmly that a short reign even of Know-Nofhiugistn : cannot shake it from itsba-v. We hope never j to see that reigrt—we believe we never shall see ' it; hut even if it comes, we shall not lose hope. As in times of temporary defeat heretofore, the democratic partv will rally with redoubled strength to prop the totering edifice ofotir liber , ties, and victory will again award its patriotism. \ But now is the time to drive this deti-stahie ism j from our midst. It sneaked among us and was jin full vigor before we knew it < xisfed. It came in the dark, arid cannot bear the light.— j Already have Virginia, North Carolina, Alaba : ma, and Tennessee d- alt it death blows. We I believe it has received its dentil-wound, but it will make a spasmodic effort next summer, and we must prepare to meet it. From its past course, we know it will stop at no means in the future to accomplish ifs ends. Let us keep up , j our# organization—let us remain united and i watch for and expose its trick*, and we shall ■ achieve a triumph which, in coming years, will j make our children proud of their fathers.

F.J. of Volunteer —ln March last the Know- Nothings carried this Borough by an average' majority of 23 votes, and elected a Tow n Coun cil that was very unpopular outside of the or der.

way the wind blows." SPECIAL ELECTION AT SINPPENSXCNO. —A special election for a member of the Town Council was held at Shippensbnrg on the 14-th inst.. and resulted, after a warm contest, in the election of John MeCurdy, Esq,, au" Irishman by birth, by a majority 42 over his Know-Noth j ing opponent. Shippensbnrg has heretofore been one of Sam's strong-holds, but the election jot Mr. MeC. lias considerable damaged Lis fu ture prospects in that locality.— Carlisle Dern. Attack by (allle on a Red Wagon. Extract from one of Col. Claiborne's letters from the pine woods of Mississippi, published in the New Orleans Delta : "I set.out for Augusta, howling merrily along in a blood-red buggv. The road was beautiful, roof'-d over with trees and vines, and the air fragrant with the breath of flowers. There was onlv onedrawback—the myriads ot flies of eve rt' species that swarmed around and ravenously 1 cupped the blood from the ears, 4 neck, and j flanks of my horse. It is what is appropriately i termed heref'fly-timv :" that is to say, f he j period when this-rwtnerous family of scourges i have it all their'bwn way, and neither man nor ! beast can venture into tin* woods with impuni ty. Now the "cattle from a thousand lulls," and even the wild deer, seek the abodes of men, j and huddle around some sirnkit g pine, or stand ! in some open field to escape their periodical tor mentors. On a sudden curve ofthe load, I Hound myself in one ol these 'stamping grounds,' and it-simultaneous roar from five hundred in formed animals gave notice of mv danger. It is ifSell-known that the Spanish maiadores pro voke the wounded hulls ol the arena by flaunt ing tfo- moleta or bi >od-red flag before them.— ; It was the color of my equipage that excited • the bellowing herd. They snuffed the air, i planted their heads near the ground, tore up the earth with their hoofs and horns, and glared at me with savage eves. The fierce phalanx ; blocked the road, and the part of discretion was ,to retreat. The moment I wheeled the pursuit commenced. A cloud ot dust enveloped them, and their trampling feet was like, the roii of thunder. Mv horse dashed forward, frantic with terror,and on they plunged, on every side crushing down everything in their course, gor ing and tumbling over each other, filling the ■ woods with th'-ir dreadful ctb* T and gathering nearer and nearer in the fearful chase. "The contest now became desperate. In five rninuLs we should have been overturned and trafhpTed to death : but at this juncture I threw out mv overcoat, and, with an awful clamor, they paused to tight over it, and tear it into shreds. Driving at full speed, I tossed out a cushion, the infuriated devils trampled it into atoms, and came rushing on, their horns clash ing against the bogy, and ri[ ping up the libs of mv horse. At this fearful moment we were providentially saved. A monstrous oak with torlfed top, had fallen near the road, and into this I plunged my horse breast bigh, and he wa* safe, the hack ofthe buggy I g then the only a.*>ailabie point. At this the whole col umn made a dash, but I met the foremost with six charges from a revolver : two bottle sof Sewell Tavlor's best were shivered in their fa ces ; next a cold turkey, and finally a bottle of scotch snuff—the last shot in tin locker, 'ibis did the business. Such a sneezing and bellow ing was never heard before : arid the one that got it put out with the whole troop at hi* heels, circling round, scenting the Mood that had been spilled, and shaking the earth with their thun dering tramp. I was now fairly in for it, and made up my mind to remain until sunset, when thev would disperse, as in "fly time" cattle graze at night. I was relieved, however, by the approach of some cattle drivers, who, gallop ing up on slfaggv but muscular horses, and with whips twenty feet long, which tln v manage with surprising dexterity, soonjdrove the herd to their "cow pens," for the purpose of mark ing and branding. This is done every year in "fly time." The cattle ranging, scattered thir ty IT. i!es around, are now easily found, collect ed at their stamping grounds, and are driven to a common pen or pond, where the respective owners assemble and put their marks and brands on the increase ofthe s.-.tson. I bus this Egyp tian plague is turned to a useful purpose. .ANECDOTE O) WE;;STI I:. —Among the many anecdotes told of Mr. Webster, there is one which though re-fleeting slightly upon bis neg ligence of pecuniary matters, is still very Web sterian in its wit: On one occasion it is related that lie was the guest ofthe Southern Senators and Representa tives in the City of Washington, and they pass ed many compliments on him, and alluded tre quentlv to his being like the Southerners in his habits and feeling, and that it was all an acci dent that he uas born in New Hampshire. At last Mr. Webster arose : "Gentlemen," said he, "it has been stated that I resemble the Southerners in many res pect* —and T must confess that, now it lias been mentioned, I think I do. The Southerners love a good glass of wine—so do L fhis is one thing in which I resemble the Southerners. — The Southerners are also good judges of beauty, and I v til again confess (hat 1 am a lover of the beautiful. This makes two points of resem blance: but there Is a third in which I more closely resemble them. The Southerners, it is said, never pay their debts, and the same has been said of me. In those particulars, gentle men, I feel I am like the Southerners. ' Shouts of laughter followed this sally of wit and good humor. CARRSED TIIE JOKE TOO FAR. —The Toronto | (Canada) Patriot says : "Two Americans, on Wednesday morning, wishing to secure a free passage from London to Niagara, received a small bounty, and enlisted to serve in the Foreign Legion. I hev were furnished with free tickets through to Niagara, and immediately left on the cars for that place: but the recruiting officer, bearing of their inten tion to stop at Paris, take the Buffalo and Brant fort lailway, and get their passage free to the land of liberty, gave notice to the conductor by telegraph to keeji an eye on the gentlemen.— When at Paris they attempted to carry out their designs but were arrested and carried on. Pro bably they will see Sebastopol before they re turn. They were respectable in appearance, but carried the joke a leeile too far." i LOUISVILLE RIOTS. From the Reading (iu/.ette arid Democrat. M ; 'e have been permitted to copy tiie follow ing extracts from a letter written by a gentle man of tbis city, now travelling in the South, who happened to be an eve-witness of the re cent deplorable tragedy in Louisville. He re lates some farts which have not been given in the accounts heretofore published and as he is an American, horn and bred, it may he taken forgianted he d ies "nothing extenuate, or set down aught in malice." LOEISVILLE, Ivy., August Slh. Tiiere are several tilings connected with the Louisville riot, which I have to make you, and vour (fiends acquainted with, before you can understand it. The polls of the city were all in the hands, that is. taken possession of, by the K. N.'s from ti A. M. to 7 I'. M., and at each poll from one to five hundred were stationed. An American could walk the gauntlet without molestation, bv taking a pistol or knife in hand, and politelv Faring "Gentlemen, I am determin ed to vote." It is said that about one hundred Germans and Irish voted with arms in their hands, or prepared with arms; this is about the number that did vote; and the foreign vote is more than one-third ol the whole. It, howev er, a poor timid voter would come with his white ticket, and no one to protect him, he was sure to go away without his vote or perhaps his life. What I mean hv the white and yellow ticket i* this : The Democrats, as usual, printed their tickets on uhite paper. The K, N.'s had yellow paper, — a large ticket, and carried it in their hands and on their hats. Some Democrats and strangers carried vellow tickets to protect ttieir persons. Last Spring the K. N. .* by a similar vet tint so bold a move, carried the mu nicipal Electi in. The Irish and Germans, who then attempted to vote, were driven from polls and a number seriously injured, and their hou ses sacked. Since that time, a large number of houses, in the upper and lower part of the city, are fir renf. and rent cheap—the result ol rioting last Spring. This spirit again began to show itself more than six weeks ago. Germans and Irish were beaten most cruelly when met out ofthe citv, alone or with their u ives, drag ged through hi icl.-pond*. and some have been found dead. No droit, lam certain, has ever been made, to bring those villains to punish no nt. Geo. D. Prentice, with Wis Journal, has been the prime mover and chief instrument in tft is trageiiv. On the morning of the election, he ii*i (I such language to his K. N. friends, (already sufficiently excited and with the blood of innocent women, whom they had shot and stoned in tile German district a few nights be fore) : "Go ahe-ad K. N.'s and raise as big a storm as you ) lea*' .'"—"L<4 foreigners keep the ir elbows to themselves to-day at the polls,'" Kc. Kc. "Keep the Irish and Germans down. Show them that Americans are determined to ; ruie America." Similar, v t more inflammatory and incen diary articles appeared in i)i-< Journal through out the canvass. Again, the mayor, council and police, are oath-bound, ard Jure not even now attempt to make an arrest, without it is a poor foreigner. They have given comfort and aid and have countenanced the mob-rule which governed the citv, and disgraced the citizens too long. It is as true as the sun shines at noon day, that not a murder was committed yester day in this town, but what has been perpetra ted in the presence of a police officer, or the victims' cry for help has been heard by them. Early in the morning, there were several Ger mans driven from the upper poll—first ward, one of them killed, and one or two seriously injured. The paitv of Germans afterwards re treated into a Brewery near by, closely pur sued by the mob. One ofthe Germans had a gun, and fired (and I believe it so happened) killed an innocent man. The Brewery was surrounded—the torcfoapplied, and six or eight perished In the flames. Several houses adjoin ing were gutted, and all suuered to burn to the ground. It is said, that some of the mob, had casks of Ale or Beer sent to their hemes from that tire. Doc-s the mayor or police not know who thev are ? 'Fhis part of the day's tragedy I did rrot see, hut received the above facts on the spot, after the ruin had been made complete. Immediately after tLis fight, the cry of fire, re ports of fire-arms, and dense crowds, became quite general along Jefferson si. from one end to the other. The mayor and his rnarshall I saw several times driving from one poll to the other in a buggy, hurraing for the second ward, and saying, "That they were doing it up brown," and so they did ; for every foreigner had to tiv the course. Soon after, there was a cold blood ed murder committed at the Court House, in the verv centre of the cit v, and within a short distance of the mayor's office. Tdo not know whether he was a German or Native, but I am certain that he had not the yellow ticket. The disgraceful pursuit commenced a short distance from the [.lace of rioting. About twenty followed him first with stones, then fired sever al shots. The poor fellow staggered and retrea ted under the K. N. speaking stand, in the Court House yard. 1 thought lie was safe there, hut all would not do. He covered his face with his hands and begged for God's sake to save him, hut the oath required it, and they mailed up his In nd, and not satisfied with thai, a fend came TERITCS, §2 PER YEAR. with a pitch-fork and ran it inlo his stomach.— This fiend afterwards paraded up and down the Court House yard, with his pitch-fork shoul der-arms for nearly one hour until his services were required elsewhere. Do the city authori ties not know who they are? I cannot give you all the incidents that happened, and that 1 saw during the afternoon. Toward evening they moved down to Chapel and Market street. An Irishman kept a grocery, and his house had a triangle maiked with chalk on it. They gut ted his house completely, divided the liquor, cigars and tobacco, & threw him out of his house with such violence as to injure him fatally.— Alter they had completed t-he destruction ot furniture and windows, they sent him to jail to make it appear that he was the guilty party. — He died in jail last night. From thete they gathered around a Mr. Quid's, one square be low on Main street. Mr. Qoin has always been called a peaceable, good citizen —he was worth about SIOO,OOO. He had several fine three-story houses, and had Irish tenants in them. When the crowd collected, they knew what would come next. An Irishman (perhaps) imprudently fired, and a man fell in the crowd. If they had not fired, I think the result would have been the same. Near 7 o'clock, they fired the house in different places. They stood guard ("L-t none but Americans stand guard to night !") so that none of the inmates of the large house could escape. The 10 or 12 two-story houses adjoining in the block, were all entered and women and children and furniture, promis cuously dashed out of doors and windows. The men had to fly in this part of the block as best they could. A poor Irish woman was lamen ting the loss of one of her children : several ot us tried to find it for her. Just as I was going near the house Mr. Quin lived in, two men, dressed in female apparel, to avoid detection, c ame out of the house (the greater part ot the house was then on fire) to make their escape. Both were recognized and both shot dead not far from where I stood. Mr. Quin then tried to make his escape, hut was shot and thrown back into the flames, and suffered to remain there until his body was nearly consumed. On the other wing of the house, a woman tried to save her husband by rolling him into a leather bed, and another woman helped to remove him from the house. They discovered the trick, and then the devils took hirn and hanged him : they then took one out of a house on the opposite side of the street, and hanged him too, and applied the torch to his house. Several more* were kill ed—some said burned up, not permitted to leave their houses. There were 12 or 14 houses de stroyed in this district. They had a twelve pounder standing in the street, and 12 or l."> with muskets marching up and down the street —some said the mayor sent the "Guards" there to keep the peace. I hope it is not so. At about 12 o'ciock or midnight, two fires were kindled in the upper part of the city the sky was in a lurid blaze, the moon looked red, and the time had come when many thought the ci ty's doom was sealed. Just at this time, they marched up Third street towards the Times and Democrat Offices, yelling like devils let loose from hell :—" Down with the Times dawn with the Democrat Here an unexpected check was made. A few grav-headed citizens stood * there, but said not a word. The mob hesitated on** of the leaders said, "Boys you have done nobly to-dav, you elected the ticket and honor able men too, and vow had better go home now."
