Chairman. NEW VOLUME The present number closes the third year of our editorship of this journal. To the manr friends who have assisted and sustained us, and especially to the gallant Democracy of our county, we return our heartfelt thanks. Our last year haa been a prosperous one, and we lope to merit a like success in the luture.— Those desiring to obtain the paper tor $1,50, flHtsf pay at or btfore September Court. We would, also, be under obligations to those in arrears, it ihev would come in and settle.— We have debts to pay, and must have our money. UNION AND HARMONY. There js a 'number of Democratic journals in tti>* State, old and respectable exponents and defenders of the Democratic faith, whose col umns are filled with all sorts of arguments (?) fur a Union Electoral Ticket to be voted jointly by the friends of Mr. Douglas and those of Mr. Breckinridge. We say ell sorts of arguments, lor, whilst some of them are reasonable and calculated for good, others are the merest de mmciation and abuse of those who oppose the policy of forming a Union Ticket. New, we assert that we are just as earnestly in Javor of union and harmony in the Democratic ranks as any of these persistent sticklers for a Union Electoral Ticket ; we are just as deeply concerned for ihe success of the Democratic party of the State and of the nation, at the coming elections, as any man in the Union ; but we do not ere bow such union arm harmony can be brought about, if the friends of Mr. Douglas, who for the best reasons in the world, look upon him as the only regular Presiden tial nominee of the Democratic party, ate to be denounced and condemned, merely because they are unwilling to accept a compromise offered aud and invented by the friends of Mr. Breckinridge. Gentlemen, if you would have a united Democracy, you must try gentler persuasives than the spar and the goad., You caonot drive men who ,'eel and know tbev are ■n the right, to make a compromise with those whom they know and feel to be in the wrong. Come, let us reason together! Who is the ot the present division in the Democrat ic riocv J Was not every Congressional dis trict ?n the Unton, represented in the Convec tion at Charleston 1 Was not the Democratic party a unit when that Convention asaembled ? Who, then, and for what cause, created the rupture m the ranks 1 Who bolted and why ? Was IT ao: the very men who now support Mr. BreaktorKfge, and was it not for the simple reason that they, a minority, could not rule and control the majority 7 Who was it that sece. ' drd from the Cbari*ston Cooventioo, organized a btdy fccMiie to Jhi: ard set up a platform in opposition to that {which was regularly aoopted by a majority of 27 votes before a sinsrle delegate had seceded trora the Convention ? Wat it not the friends and sup|iorters of !<lr. Breckinridge ? Does it not, therefore, come with a bad grace from these disorganizing gentlemen to denounce the ' friends of Mr. Douglas, because, forsooth, they vrili not accept a cure prescribed bv the very men who produced the disease ? It the triends ol Breckiniidge, are as anxious to elect Doug las, as they pretend to be in their arguments for a Union Electoral Ticket, why did they ever bolt, or vvhere's the harm in their voting a Douglas Electoral Ticket ? It, as they pro pose to do, thev can vote to give the Sta eot Pennsylvania to Douglas, if it will elect him, where's the eatrifi e of principle in voting a pure Douglas Electoral Ticket, or what is the sense in throwing awa_v their votes onßrecki ridge? If the party is to be re-united, is it not ra [ ther for the bolters who disrupted the party, to ■ come back and join the organization from which thev seceded, than for the organization to run alter the bolters ? Shall the mountain goto Mahomet, or Mahomet to the moun ; tain ? That those men who bolted from the Demo cratic National Convention, and nominated Breckinridge and Lane, are the immediate and responsible cause for the present difficulties in j our ranks, no candid man will dare to deny. — Theirs is the wrong and it is for them to re i pair it. Wo be to them, if they fail to d" it ! • For ourself, we are ready and anxious to do all we can to re-unite the party ; we are willing | to support any compromise which does not re ; quire of us a sacrifice ot principle, or of honor ; but we have determined, so far as we are con cerned, that if the men who are attempting to i destroy the Democratic party, will persist in their work of insanity, they never shall receive i any recognition from us, except as penitents i seeking to be restored to the fold whence they wantonly and causelessly strayed. STAND TO YOUR FLAG ! The darkest hour is just belore day ! The I night of disaster is neariy spent, and the bright dawn of a glorious future will soon burst upon the steadfast Democracy. There is a vivify ing spirit that stirs in the blocd cf our noble old party, inciting to activity and ex ertion, and flushing our banners with the proph ecy of victory It is the brave and dauntless spirit of the voung Democracy ! It is the blood uf youth, in whose "vocabulary there is no such word as fail !" The young men of the countn , the Iree hearted and tfce true-hearted, are rally ing to the Democratic standard. The old grey headed veterans, whose stately tread has been a march to victory in years gone by, now lead on a band of spirited and active men, with the impress of manhood fresh and undimmed upon their brows, whose battle cry is Democracy, the Union and the Constitution ! Not as in times of yore—not as in the days of HarrisoD, Taylor and the Know Nothing era—the young men of our land are now with and of the De mocracy, ihev are for STEPHEN A. DOU GLAS, the intrepid champion of the sovereign ty of the people ! All honor to the war-worn veterans that have lought our battles in the past! All honor to the men who stood by Polk and Pierce and Buchanan ! Let them stand to their flag once jnore—let them lead us against the foe once again—and the young Democracy will follow to sweep fc ev?rv vestige of Black Republicanism from the soil nl our happy land Stand to your flag ! "Forever float that standard sheet. Where breathes the foe but falls before us, With freedom's soil beneath our feet, And freedom's banner streaming o'er us!" MAKE WAY FOR DEMOCRACY! THE CRY IS STILL THEY COME ! We have received a letter from MR. JOHN MYERS, a citizen of Londonderry township in this county, in which he renounces Black Re publicanism in all its phases, and announces his intention "hereafter to cleave to the De mocracy !" Such is the case every where. The intelligent men of the opposition,Yince the meeting of the Chicago Convention, and the nomination of Abe Lincoln, find that they were humbugged and that they can no longer consis tently remain in the ranks of that reckless and unprincipled party. Tftey do not believe in sayir.g, one year, that Foreigners are the curse of the country, and in running after them for their votes, the next. They do not believe in the doctrine of Lincoln, that "this Union can not endure permanently half free and half slave." They are for the Union, not against if. They are for peace and friendship between the different States, not for intestine broils and John Brown raids. Such men are entirely welcome to our rank*. John W. Forney. We warn our Democratic friends againtt trusting this renegade from the Democracy.— We believe him to be a thorough-going Black Republican, if is support of MK. DOUGLAS is mete pretence, and the tone ol his columns shows that he cares more for the success of Lin coln than oi Douglas. The Douglas men place no confidence in him, nor will they accept any of his doctrines or propositions. The man who plays the ingrate with his best friend, i 9 to be watched and shunned. Bewar-of him ! have received from the authors, Messrs. R. J. Haldeman and W. H. Welsh, (the former the member for Pennsylvania, of the Douglas Democratic National Committee, the latter the Chairman of the Democratic State t*.vo very able articles, the one ad vocating the policy and propriety of a pure Douglas Electoral Ticket, the other favoring a Union Electoral We should like to publiah both, but cannot find room lor the pres- I er:t. GOOD NEWS! By air arrangement between Messrs. Collins s and Dull and the President and Directors of the Bed lord Railroad company, the work ol gra- | ding the said road, will be resumed on the first J of August next. That part of the road between j Hopewell and Bloody Run, wil be ready for the laving of 'he track on or before the first of December next. We learn, also, that the "re mainder of the road (the part between this p'ace and Bloody Run) will be let as soon as the final survey is completed, which will prob ably be about the first ol September next. The President and Directors of the road merit the thanks of all interested in the project, ior their energetic and unremitting exertions in promo ling its success. The Only National Party. The rtgular organization of the Democratic party, whose nominee for President is STPHEX A. DOUGLAS, will run an electoral ticket in i eveiy state ol the Union where the Electors are chosen by the people. This cannot be said of any other party. The Black Republicans will not have an electoral ticket in at least 12 | states ; the Bell rnen will /ail to have a tick,., in some six slates, and in twelve Northern states the Breckinridge men will not be able to raise jan electoral ticket. How, then, can any Na tional man hesitate as between the different par ties ? His choice must be DOUGLAS and ithe regular Democratic organization. p BOH. EDWARD MCPHERSON.—This gentle man, the member ot Congress from this district, is at present staying at Bedford Springs. Mr. ; MCPHERSON is an agreeable gentlpman (being , an old editor, how could he be otherwise?) and seems to be popular with his patty. Personal ly we wish him much success—politically,— I may the principles he advocates soon be blot ted from the chart of politics. v Local and Miscellauect:?. i ... .A performance novel and interesting to rrany of cur readers, will come off at this place on Friday the 27th inst.

PROF. T. MCD.

S. S. Wharton, J. Sewt-li Stewart, Esq., and Mr. McWilliams ; one in Somerset, Maj. Alex. : Stutzman, and any quantity in Bedford, of j which last Maj. W'ashabaugh seems to be the ! most prominent. Probably they will not all be elected. * .... B— ware ! The Secessionists seem (o have appropriated th* letter ;, B" to their own exclusive use. "To B, or not to B, the question" with them. They seem in this par ticular member of the Alphabet, to live, move ! and have their B-ing. la fact without it they could not have their B-reajJ acd B-utter.— Hence their exhibition of transparencies with • those three mysterious "B's" upon them, at some iof their recent pow-wows. "Breck, Bread and , Butter ! " Thai's their motto. . . .Somerset county was represented at the Springs last week, by our old friends, Col. ISAAC HUGus, MAJ. ALEX. STCTZMAN, GEY. GEO. Ross/ and JOHN W. PARKER, ESQ., than whom a pleasanter quartette of gentlemen cannot be found in all Western Pennsylvania. They inform us that the crops in Somerset county are yielding a most extraordinary harvest, some of the farmers in that region claiming that their wheat-fields will turn out from thirty to forty bushels per acre ....Among the numerous visitors at the Springs, during the past week, w recognized HOY.

The season at the Springs is now at its height, a large number of visitors being in attendance. ... .The Census Marshal? for tl<is county, are about completing their labors. We are en abled to give the population of the following districts: Bedford Borough, 1328; Bedford township, 2105 ; Colerain, 1235 ; Cumberland Valley, 1326. In 1850, the population of these districts, was as follows : Bedford Bo rough 1203 : Bedford township, 1831 ; Colerain 1281 ; Cumberland Valley, 1114. Total in 1850—5,4.29; in 1860—5,994. Increase. 565. The decrease in Colerain is accounted lor by the fact that a considerable slice was ta ken off that townstiip in 1857, to form the new township'of Snake Spring. .. . .Persons wishing beautiful plain or col ored photographs, should apply to .Messrs.

We find in the last issue of the Fulton Dem ocrat, the subjoined article on the Presidency. It is bold, honest, and outspoken, and we heartily •commend it to our readers : accordance with the views heretofore expressed m our editorial columns, we this day raise to the mast-head of the "Democrat" the names Stephen A. Douglas and Heischei V. Johnson, the regularly nominated candidates ot '.tie Democratic party lor President and Vice President. We do this so thai our friends may where -ve are on this question, an 1 be cause it is not in our power to equivocate or "carry water op both shoulders." We are for Douglas and Johnson, heait and soul, and the I best efforts we are capable of shall be used to I promote their election. Whilst we regret the ; split in the ranks of the party, made wider by ! designing demagogues and tricky politicians, j our duty a9 3 Democratic editor is piain. We I recognize the action of the regular Convention iat Baltimore as the action of the Democratic party of the nation. By that action we as Democrats are bound, and although the nomi ! nations made, may not be those we would have j wished, yet duty and honor compels all who are really Democrats to acquiesce and give them a hearty support. The disunionists of the north, led on by the II vile abolition horde of New England, enlisted under such men as Garrison, Greely, Sanborn, Beecher, Seward and Co., have nominated Lin coln as their candidate, lavoring Congressional j intervention against slavery, whiist prominent j among tbeseceders who support Breckinridge, ! are to be found the disunionists of the South, a- Imong whom is W. L. Yancey, a man of brilliant talenls, but an avowed advocate of a dissolution joftheUnioD. These men favot intervention iin favor of slavery. Here are the two ex j tremes meeting on common ground, because if it is right for Congress to interlere against sla | very it is also right that they should interfere in its favor. The conservative and medium ground is that occupied by Senator Doughs nori inrerveiition of Congress with the question of slavery. This was the doctrine inscribed upon our banners in 1856, and is the true ground to take now. Under this flag we have marched to victory and under it we shall still conquer. I' We do not say that the election of Lincoln will produce a dhsolution of the union, but we be lieve that if such a thing is possible, his election will bring it about. As one who loves his countn* and who de sires to see its glotious institutions handed down to the latest posterity, we support Mr. Douglas. He is a statesman of tried metal, a patriot of the soundest integrity, and a Democrat deserving the suoport of all who love the principles ol that party. ''We do our own Business in our own way.'' We cannot be driven from the post of right with its fortifications ol justice environing it, by the threats of secession fire-eaters raving for a dissolution of the Union, and anxiously seek- I iig a protest for the establishment of a Southern | Confederacy. We have been charged with bring fire-eaters ourselves, and we are—in one i sense of the word. We invite "war, pestilence and famine," rather than the South should de grade herself iu the scale of political, practical equality, but we are for death and the grave rsther than dissolve the Union upon a farciful Utopia, engendered in the minds of those who have no optimism outside of cotton stiings, and no prudence outside of sectional domination. We are for the South all the time, lor it so long as we can maintain its privileges in this glori ous Union, —for it outside of the Union, if we cannot maintain its rights within its limits. The position of the National Democratic party and Judge DOUGLAS, admits of our remaining in the Union ; and we espouse his cause as com patible with justice, patriotism and the sover eignty of the States. People of the South ! people of Virginia' in what condition and under what type of gov ernment can you expect a more lair dispensa tion of municipal law and political equality than under the present Federal Government and the present States government of this glorious con led.°racy ? Do you expect more happiness un der a Southern league, as at onetime favored by Wm. B. Yancey 1 If so, oppose Judge DOUGLAS. BO you expect it undei the admin istration of public affairs with each State repre sented bv a separate Government distinct lrom political alliance with the others? If so oppose Jud<*e DOUCLA*. But if you are for the ideas of Jefferson, of Madison, Monroe and Jackson, and the plan ofsafeiv and peace and prosperity, stand by and tally around the standard of the National Democracy. No threats v.od no arms can drive us and the reople of Rockingham from the support of the gallant Tllinoisian un less the compromise suggested ;n our last im pression of the Register is met and agreed up on. "We do our own business in our own way," and that way is always in the line of A merican patriotism and democratic usage.— Rockingham (Vn.) Register. From the State Sentinel. Who'll Take Them ! A correspondent of the Indianapohs (Indi ana; Sentinel, who is anxious to make or lose some money, sends us the following proposition. Is there a zealous Lincoln man in these pans who will take the bait ? "1 will bet SIOO that Lincoln will not be elected . SIOO that Breckinridge will not get one electoral vote outside of South Carolina, Mississippi and Florida ; SIOO that Douglas will be elected : SIOO that Breckinridge's name will not get before the House of Representatives; SIOO that Joe Lane will not be elected by the Senate ; SIOO that Hendricks will be elected Governor, SIOO each that Lincoln will not°t a majority in Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania,, New Jersey, Indiana, Illinois, Wiscohsin, Oregon and California. All these bets to taken togetfe er. OHIO. KEEP IT ST.tSDI.\G ! LET THE PEOPLE KNOW ! That there remained in the National Conven tion at Baltimore, afier every disorganizing Rebel had seceded, 436 regularly appointed delegates, entitled, under the rule, to cast 218 voles— lG MORE than TWO-THIRDS of a f ULL Convention. Let tbein know that, on the second baliot, SREPHEN A. DOUGLAS, re ceived IKI i votes of the 2IS, over FORTY more than TWO-THIRDS of the whole vole present. And then, to clinch all, let '.hem know, that the resolution declaring STEPHEN A. Douglas to be the unanimous choice of the Con vention, passed wiihou' a single dissenting voice ; so that STEPHEN A. DOUGLAS actually received 218 votes—sixteen votes more than two th rJs ola lull Conven 10.1 ! Let tlie People know, too, that the Seceder's Convention which nominated Breckinridge and Lane had no authority from any const itnency to sit at Baltimore outside of the regular Conven tion—that it did not contain more than eight}' or ninety delegates who had even a shadow of authoiity from the people to act—that it cast in all but 105 votes—not one of them properly au thorized, or binding on any body—let them know this, and let them decide which was the Regular and which was the Disorganize! X Con vention, and which of the nominees. Dougias or Bretkuiridge, is entitled to the undivided sup port o! the National Democracy. Douglas Men on (lie Mump (long Side ot (lie Secrders at the Smth. Right nobly, says an exchange, have the true-hearted Democracy of (he South entered the campaign to battle against sectionalism and disunion. We like the' plan ot the gallant Mississippians, where the Douglas men meet the Seceders on the same stump, and the crowd listens to the speakeis of both parlies. In all these discussions great good is being done to the cause of the "Little Giant," as is sure to be the case where the masses of the thinking, un selfish people hear the truth honestly explain ed. One of these meetings took place a few days since, at Corinth, Mississippi, at which Hon. B. N. Kenyon on the part of the Douglas men, and Ex-Governor J- W. Matthews for the Seceders, held forth. The True Democrat ol that place says of the meeting : Our limited space will not admit of an ex tended notice ot this discussion. Suffice it to say, that the Seceders are bearded at their own homes by their own constituency, tor a deser tion of the great and settled principles of the Deinocralic party. By party trickstering, known to all, the Seceders have been enabled to disrup! the pcrty, and sow seeds of discord in this trying hour ot its histoiy ; and the peo ple will not hold tiiem guiltless, but in every county ol the State, as in Tishomingo, they will be met in their efforts to paim off on us the nominee of a miserable faction, and be let to know, as they were in 1851, that slavery agitation shall be driven fiom Congress, and the people allowed to make their own laws in their own way. "residential Calculations. The commercial editor of The Augusta I Constitutionalist, Mr. Pritchard, alter consul ting with all the leading men at Baltimore, and visiting: Washington and New York lor the pur pose of obtaining information, thinks th&: following States can be reiied on to give their ; electoral vote for Douglas and Johnson : New York 35 | Minnesota. . .4 Pennsylvania ......'27 j Wisconsin 5 Ohio 23 J Missouri 9 ; Indiana 13 | Maryland 8 Illinois 11 | Louisiana 6 New Jersey 7 J ; lowa 4 | Total 152 It is also believed by many, Mr. Pritchard says, that the tollowing States will vote lor Douglas and Johnson : Alabama 9 California 4 Delaware 3 Oregon 3 Arkansas 4 Michigan 6 Connecticut ..6 | New Hampshire. ..7 j Total 42 , Mr. Piitchaid made up his calculation very , •oon ai er the nominations were announced.— We think it safe to say, at present, that Con- ; necticut is nearly certain lor Lincoln, and that j Maine, New Hampshire, Michigan and Arkan sas are certain for Douglas. Onr belief .si that in the North and West Mr. Lincoln has i I st at least tive per cent, of his strength since! the Baltimore nominations were made ; and ; that the split ol the Democratic party, instead i ot doing us harm, is actually doing us good in j every one of the free States. The Republican { thunder is gone, and Abe Lincoln is scarcely j thought of in the fight.— Providence Post. THE OLD I)0>1I\10\-VIR(.1MU The mother of States seems to be in a politi cal stew at present. There as here, thpre seems to be a party in favor of sustaining regular Na tional nominations, and a party of disorgani zes. The Democratic State Executive Committee i met on the 10th of July, to try their hand at I what is called by the secessionists in this State ; "compromise but they tailed. The Breckin- i ridge wing have called a State Convention to j assemble at Chailottsville on the 16th of Aug., j and the Douglas wing have called a similar ' Convention to meet at Staunton on the same j day. The Richmond Enquirer ot the 13th contains an address from D. H. Hoge, Esq., a delegate to the late National Democratic Convention from the 12th Virginia District, in which he a bly argues in support of the regularity and bind ing force of the nominatiun of Mr. Douglas, and declares unequivocally in his favor. In the san.e paper of the 17ih, we find an ad dress from another delegate to the same Con vention, Wm. G. Brown, Esq., of the 15th Dis trict. Mr. 8., takes strong ground in favor of Douglas, as the regular nominee, although lie was not his first choice, and declares he cannot support Breckinridge, whom he pronounces <lh# nominee of a Seceders' Convention not called by the people." We are glad to see that the National Democ racy are firm even in "Old Virginia." Douglas Ratification Meeting at Ful ton, W. Y FULTON, July 21,1860. The people rallied en masse in this place last night to ratify the nominations of Douglas and Johnson. Three immense meetings were'held at the same time, which were addressed by Hon. Edward Marshall, of Kentucky ; Hon. Sanford E. Church, and Hon. Francis B. Spin ola. The greatest enthusiasm prevailed. Af ter the meeting the Douglas clubs had a good torch light procession. At least five thousand people atteoded the meeting. HOS. A H STEPHEN If THE FIELD Thi. profound statesman, eloquent speake and sound national Democrat ha, entered thj held for Douglas and Johnson. So fully i m " pressed ts he with the importance oi (he Contest that he announces his determ.nation not tocon fine his effjits t 0 Georgia alone, but to o in*,, all the Southern States. The Northern rebels will probably find, bef o ,- a November, that they rrnssed the mark at which they aimed when they united their political 0 ;' tunes with the disunionijts of the South. The will find, before that time, that among conser vative men m the South, Yancey and his p ro . gramme are as much detested as they are amoncr the National Democrats of the North. Thev will find that the most able men in the South ern Stales will support the nominees of the Na tional Convention, and that the masses the great majority of the party, will sustain them-- and they will find, alter the election, that the, r candidates have not received a single Electo ral vote,in the whole Union.— Statg Stnh nei. THE HIGHT SPIRIT Ihe Jackson Union, published in count}', Indiana, though opposed to the nation of Judge Douglas, hoists the ot Douglas and Johnson. It says : We have raised the names of Douglas and Johnson to our mast-head as the Democratic candidates for President and Vice President.- We are constrained to take this step for the rea son that Judge Douglas is the nominee of the National Democratic partv ; and, as we have ever been opposed to "bol'ters," we shall not boltourself, although the nomination is not ex actly as we desite it should be. The only ques tion for Democrats in Indiana to consider is, shall Indiana go for Douglas ot for Lincoln?— Shall the Democracy triumph, or shall the Op position. Great Ratification Heeling at Memphis 100 Guns for Douglas and Johnson. On Saturday last, about ten thousand Demo ocratsassembled in mass meeting at Memphis, Tennessee, to ratify the nomination of Doughi and Johnson. The occasion was one of the most notable in the political history of Tennes see. Judge W. C. Dunlap presided over the indoor meeting. The gathering outside was addressed bv Hon. William T. Brown, J. P Pryor, of Holly Springs, E. M. Wager,' H. C. Voung, A. H. Douglas and Col. John Eubanks, ot Illinois. Resolutions approving the course of the delegates who did not des-rt the party at Baltimore, and commendatory of the nomina tion of Douglas and Jonnson were unanimous ly passed. A resolution was adopted recom mending a full elecioral ticket pledged to the nominess of the only Democratic Convention held at Baltimore. The German Democracy. A large and enthusiastic meeting of the Ger man Democracy ot Cambria county, was held on Wednesday the 12:h, at Johnstown, to ratify the nominations of Douglas, Johnson and Foster. 'I he meeting was large and enthusiastic, and was addressed by John B. Stoll, the talented young editor of'the "Btobcchter," the German organ of Cambria, at considerable length ; Mr. Hey I also addressed the assemblage in En glish. Strong resolutions were passed, endorsing Douglas, Johnson and Foster, as the regular nominees. A Douglas Club was then organ ized. when t.Ve meeting Q.Jj..n r r...j ~u i .lst en thusiastic coerrs for the success of the ticket. The German vote of Western Pennsylvania is a heavy one, and will be cast as a unit for Dou glas, Johnson and Foster. A Firm- RATE LAWYER. —Lucky for Lin coln that he happened to live in Illinois and had a tilt with Douglas, or he would never have been heard of in the political world. The Chicago Democrat, Wentworth's paper, and a Black Republican sheet, sums up Mr. Lincoln thus: ".Mr. Lincoln was in early times, a member of the Illinois House of Representatives. He was also a member of Ihe Thirtieth Congress of the United States, being the last two years of Mr. Folk's Administration. Beyond this Mr. Lincoln has no official record. He has devoted most of his time to his profession, by which :ie has been enabled to but little more lhan support himself from one year to anot/t- N'o experience in Legislation, no claims to Statesmanship, and a poor stick of a lawver. What a president he would make. "Oh ho, ho, such a nominee, As Abraham Lincoln of lllino s-ee." WESTERN NEW YORK. —The Ontario Repos itory, an Opposition print, says:—"While Douglas is not our candidate, we are willing to do trim and his friends the justice to sav that we believe bis strength has been very greatly underrated. We can speak only from the tes timony of others in relation to the support he is likely to receive in other sections of the coun try, but no man of intelligence aud candor cart come to any other conclusion than that here, in Ontario county, the Democratic party are uni ted upon him, and not only that, but "that there are many of the other parlies who will give him their hearty support.
