Look to it, ami see that your name, am! that of your neighbor is en ro'le'l among the list of voter-. L)o not suffer it to be said by vour fellow Demociat, thai through your n e!i"eiire you were deprived of one of the most glo ria*-privileges—that of the right of -utfrage. See • 9 it then. Don't depend upon others having it done, hut "u yourselves to the assessor and see that your names are properly entered. The law requires that vou should be assessed at lea-t ten days before the election, which takes place on the 13th day of Octo ber next. A PROTRACTED MEETIXG is nenv in progress in the M. E. Church of this place, and will continue every evening up to next Saturday, when Ouarterly meeting will commence. The P. E., Rev. Mr. Gurett, is expected to be present at the services on Sabbath morning. The Sacrament of the Lord's Siipoer will be administered on Ihe afternoon of that <lav. Mr. SeoT-rswoon, tiie I'astor in charge here, -a gentleman of great determination and ability, and labor-with unceasing diligence in his sacred calling. LAST WEEK, John 0. Kimmel, Jl'm. A. OA" and O. H. Oaithrr, Esqs. of Somerset, were admitted to the practice of the law iri the several Courts of that county. It was our privilege to be pres entat the examination, and judging from the manner in which the many "TIVISTEItS" put to them, were unravelled, we have no he-itancy in saying that they are amply qualified for their dignified profession.

XOTICES of the meeting at Flack's in E. providence Tp., and of that at Stonerstown, (which was very large) will appear next week. A DEMOCRATIC FRIEXD, who has been louring it in Londonderry township, has entertained us with a description of the beauti ful farm owned by C. Devore Esq., of that township. He says lie saw the most luxuriant corn-crops growing upon it that he ever beheld. A fine brick farm-house, about which every thing is a mode! of neatness and taste, is the dwelling of Mr. Dev >re. The scenery circum jacent is exceedingly fine, and the most wildly picturesque views can be obtained from various points on 1 fie farm. Thermite of the Pittsburg and Cinitellsvijfe Riilroad skirts this locality, which fact will in time greatly enhance the value of lands located there. f./i.\. P.

SMITH: Sin.:—At a meet- I ing held in Ebensburg, on the loth inst., of which you were Pre.sid--nt, the following reso lution is reported as has ing been passed unami mously : Resolved , That we emphatically denounce the meddlesome spirit evinced by George \V. Bow man in interfering svith the Democratic nomina tions ot this county. His course we cannot but re gard as unkind and ungenerous, and lie should be made to understand that the Democracy of Cambria can attend to their own interests without tus dicta tion. Now, sir, 1 deny the truth of the charge pre ferred iti the above resolution, it is false in ev ery particular—destitute of even the shadow of foundation. I have not, at any time, either di rectly or indirectly, "meddled" or "interfered" with the "Demociatic nominations of Cambria," and it was unjust, as well as "unkind and un generous" in you, sir, as an old friend, to suffer this slander to pass without the production of evidence to sustain it. You, at least, should have raised your voice against it. 1 do aot think I am asking too much in calling upon you, as a gentleman, for the proof to support the a boie allegation—and 1 expect you to produce it, or acknowledge Hie glaring injustice done nie ata meeting over which you presided. As the editor of a Democratic newspaper, living in the District of which Cambria was a part, I denouuce.Kl. NELSON SMITH as having betrayed bis party in the most shameful and reckless mamtei, by refusing to vole lor the '•regular nominee" of the Democratic party tor Senator of the United States, thus indirectly aiding lu electa Black Republican Know Nuth uig to that important hodv, for a period of six years, against the express wishes of his constitu ents! in pursuing this course, I did not stand alone. I'iie Democracy ul Bedford County in Alass ( -ounty Meeting us well as tie* Democra cy ol Fuitun denounced hun as a Traitor, un worthy I lie future respect and confidence of the party. Was this interfering with the "Demo cratic nominations ut Cambria?" G. Nelson Smith did not deny that Col. Fotr- NEY had been "regularly" nominated, ami the only reason lie pretended to give tor Ins apostocy, was, that Mr. BUCHANAN, the President elect, had expressed a preference for him, thus deny ing to the great iavorile til the American peo ple a ngiit guaranteed to even the humblest cit. izen ir> the laud—that of an honest expression ol opinion. Smith s denunciations of Mr. Bu chanan's letter were of the most low and scur rilous character imputing to that great and good man any thing but a pure inolivs. After this insult to Air. Buchanan, arid be trayal of a high trust, which had been branded, in proper terms, by the entire Democratic press of the Stale, (if we except the mongrel ami prostitutec sheets of Westmoreland and Cam bria,) the wire-wotkers of Cambria county forced G. Nelson Smith upon the people for a third term, in violation of former usages, thus demanding that the honest Democrats, who spurned his course, should be compelled to en dorse his treason, no matter how revolting the pill ! ID giving utterance to the sentiments ofthe Democracy of Bedford and Fulton, we express ed surprise at such a result—denominated it an insult to all conscientious Democrats—am! said that the defeat ol G. Nelson Smith would be lar more crecitahie to the true Democracy of Ctunbfiu than his election—and upon this point we have not changed our opinion. Was llns "interfering with the Democratic nominations of Cambria ? " What Democrat does not blush fur his native Slate, when he remembers that in a Legislative body having a legitimate majority of Represent latives chosen bv (lie National Democracy, Si mon Cameron w as eL cted to misrepresent this glorious old Commonwealth tor a period of six years, through the treachery of Smith and a few otherdisoiganizers of the same stripe? G. Nelson Smith trampled beneath his (Vet the established usages ol tin* Demociatic par ly, in refusing to vole lor the "regular nomi nee" for Senator of the U. States, and now the Democrats of' Cambria are told that ail their in terests are embodied in returning turn to Dm Legislature! Those who refuse to vote for liiin are styled "dis,organizers." The election or the defeat of Mr. Smith, can neither benefit or injure me, personally—and J would not recall a word I have written concer ning him were 1 ceitain he would receive every ! vote i.i CamSiia county. Whilst the meeting at which Dr. Smith ! acted as President, denounced jm* lor defending i the old laud-marks of ihe Denvwratic pariy, it eulogized the man who refused io vote for one j of the brightest intellects and most faithful ad vocates of our great faith, who was placed in nomination bv the usage that lias ever charac terized our political action. 1 feel very sorry lo see Dr. Smith engaged in the business of bol stering up so reckless a renegade—and trust he will be able to give some substantial rea-uu lor his conduct.
