It happened that befere re-ochlng Dunkirk yesterday, no Ism tban three Judges made their appearance on the Erie railway oars somewhere in Cattaraugus county. One was Canal Oonuniesi xier, a very worthy man by hia looks, and one who evidently knows at much about a canal as the Mate requires. Tbo trio at once engaged j? a loud and general conversation, the Canal Commissioner being rather reserved and a little sleepy, not stupid. Jadge No. 1?How is it with you, Judge ? Anything going on about the State? Judge No. 2?Just returned from an official tour Inspectlag Mate canals. Don't know mnoh about anything else. Judge No. 3?Lxcoln boys waking up, Judge? Judge No. J?No, not much stirring; Lincoln's got too May votes already. Judge No. 1?I'm afraid we are too confident about Lveoln. Confidence may defeat us. Judge No. 2?

The great northwest of Ohio Is strongly republican. It li difficult to calculate Douglas' strength; for while the Breckinridge people declare it to be on the wane in Ohio, evidence's afforded that there is something substantial in the "Little Giant's" position which does not meet the public eye, but reste in the hearts of the people. We will take one instance for the purpose of Illustration. Tbe publisher of one of the Douglas papers In this city?the Plaindtaler?has published a campaign sheet every Presidential election for a number of years. Heretofore he has thought be was doing well if he obtained five or six thousand subscribers: at the present time the demand lor the paper is so Immense that he has been obliged Is put on an extra force in all the business departments. Commencing with one subscription book, capable of containing five or six thousand names, ne filled that to evertowmg; then book No. 2 was tilled: then book No. 3, and now book No. 4 is being rap.dly filled. He has now some forty thousand circulation, and new names pouring m from every quarter every day. This is a fact resreettag Douglas' secret strength In the West that may well be weighed in making up sn estimate of his popular.ty n this quarter. The Breckinridge men in this city are evtremcly active. Tbsy have a newspaper, ably edited, called the \atifmal Democrat, and a campaign sheet, of wh . h about five thousand copies are issued. Br" kinri Ige's strength Is ss great in Cleveland, It I* alleged, as it is in any other pari of the s!tatc of Ohio; but be does not receive the support of the foreign element, which Is great in this section. Tbe Germans aro the largest body of foreign voters, and a majority at them will go for Doagias. That is settled. 'A Douglas demonstration will take i/lace to morrow night, htaucd by a stroogr Douglas man. Col. J.

J. Haldeman, a politician of this borough and a member of the Douglas National Executive Committee, in connection with a small minority ef the members of the State Executive Co mm ttee resident at Hamsburg. It was tha intention of Haldeman and the other self constituted leaders to throw over this meeting a cover of regularity, and then force It to take some definite action?laboring under the impression that their call would be acknowledged only by men of their own kind, and that the Convention would be composed of ready dupes who would follow any course If led on with the cry of "No compromise. " Your readers will bear in mind that the regular Ptnte Committee appointed at the Reading Convention, which selected the lielegatee to the Charleston Convention, nominated electors and a candidate for Governor, had at their meeting in Philadelphia r^eommendod a union of efforts by both wings of the democratic party, and had directed their chairman to obtain pledges from all the electors that they would, cast tb^r vote In accordance with the agreement or the omm.ttee. This action aroused the Iiouglasites and kicked up a hrcese generally amongst tho i followers of the "Little Giant." from Korney down. To 1 pfcow the friends of Breckinridge, and Set-v.or Biglcr in | particular, tint they would not follow the l>>a<1 ofanv such party. R. J. Haid^man, the Pennsylvania member of the ' Douglas National Conimlttee, call-d thU Con vol t ion to repudiate the action of the commlltcc, an J to act thiug-i , right all round. The proceedings of the Convention were all cooked rp before band. An iidre?? had been prepared,? series of resolutions adopted, proper officer* sclcct?J, and all the work farmed out.

(Applause.) 1 The Convention was permanently organize 1 by the election of Hendrick B. Wright, of Luzerne county, President. A Committee on Resolutions was appointed, consisting of Richard Vaux, of Philadelphia; Ira C. Mitchell, of Centre Jobn Cessna, of Bedford; W I. Pewart,of Vorthnm berland Charles Brown, of Philadelphia; John W. Maycard, of Lycoming: James Hill, of Franklin; Israel Paintor, of Northumberland; Judge Champneys.of ljuicastor; Stanley Woodward, ofl-uzerne; George W. Penrce, of Chester; C. H. Ward, of Bradfbrd; George IV Buchcr, of Cum berland. This committee retired, and spent about two hours In During their absence the meeting was entertained with ; several clap trap speechoe made by the lower order of politician*. I The proceedings of the Committee on Resolution?, which met in the Senate Hall, were of lively intereat. Tho first matter which came under consideration was an address, Rill of pedantry, prepared by a young and aspiring politician. I'nwilljag to submit to its entire read ug, the committee agreed to rocommond it on the strength of tho assertions of the } oung gentleman'* friends that it covered all the ground necerwy. The ^solutions of Haldeman, appointing him sole ex- ] ecutive officer of the destinies of the party, were attached to the address. They were laid on the door without re ' celvlng even a moment's consideration. Quite an excitement wa* threatened, when Ool. Painter, | of Northumberland, opposed a resolution endorsing the candidate for Governor, Mr. Foster, on the ground that 1 that gentleman was sitting on the fence and was reported ] to fkvor the fusion movement. Several members arose and implored llr. Painter not to throw this firebrand. Should the endorsement of Mr. Foster be omitted by the Douglas 1 men, the democracy ol I he State would desert their < standard by thousands and support Mr. Breckinridge. Col. Patvtkr said he had op posed the recommendation ' of Mr. Faster until he had declared himself, because ho 1 thought the friends of Douglas were willing to meet the i battle boldly, and were careless of victory unless it was , a triumph of principles. As his suggestion had cauiod so much apprehension, however, he would withdraw it. I Resolutions were then adopted endorsing Douglas and l the principle of non intervention without debate. The subject of an electoral ticket was earnestly dis cussed. Several members of the committee were In fkvor of immediate action; they desired that the present meet . ing should nominate an electoral ticket. Hie friends of IXraglaa wanted a ticket before them which they could support. The Convection now in session was af c&pable 1 of choosing a true Douglas electoral ticket as a delegate convention would be. We have had enough State Conventions, and as they arc attended with much sipense. they thould ho aa few as possible. Other members were desirous of a more moderate course of action. Let this meeting or convention nominate an electoral ticket in op- ? nnalli/tn tn that a* D??4Ua mnA J selvfR out of the democratic organization. We arc not yet able to decide between the friend* and opponents of Mr. Itouglas on the prcaent electoral ticket, and in (-Imaging it we might be striking some of oar own friends.

If. Fitzhugh and Major Carter, in tho presence and In defiance, If not by the consent, of Got. Letcher's Prince William Cavalry corps, Capt. Thornton 1 commanding, entered the Tillage of Occo<iuan, Virgin.a, and cat down a liberty pole erected by the republican', from which Ooated tho American flag, and upon which was Inscribed the names of Ijnooln and lUmnn. The Alexandria Caz'.Ut of to day describes the scene as follows ? On the 4th of July the black republicans, of whom some sixty reside in the vicinity of Occoquan, instituted an association, and agreed to erect a pole to boor aloft a (lag with the names of J.incoln and Hamlin. The pole was ac cordingly erected, the following persons Assisting in the pole raising:?John Underwood, W. C. Alhoy, Robert Curtis, Oliver Underwood, H. W. Rives, J. W. Miller, William Davis (boy), Stephen Qammill, John Taylor, Andrew Underwood , Marion Grigg, T. O. Coulter, James Gould, Thomas Rives, Jr., H. F. Duty, W. H. Johnston, T. L. Selecman, John Wright, William Western, A. A. Selecmun, Edward Roberts (Englishman), Tasco Harris (frco uogro), Jim Snyder (free negro), and Albert Harris (freo negro). Upon the raising of the pole the pole raisers wcrearmod with muskets, and made quite a military demonstration A meeting was held, at which blaclc republican speech"* were made by W. C. Athey and J. Wright. Many persons in the neighborhood oppoeed the erection of tho pole, but at first there was no indication of an attempt to disturb it. Tfce republicans when spokea to on tho sub jeet answered, "That there was no one In thejeountry who dared to touch the pole? thero were men enough to defend it," 4c. On one occasion an old rcsideut of tho neighborhood was assaulted because he declared that the pole was a nuisance,and on another threats were made to ride upon a rail a gentleman living near by, because ho bod spoken Southern sentiments freely in Occoquan. Tins raised much feeling in the neighborhood, and at a mooting at BrentBvllle, some time about last Court, it was agreed that the flag was an Insult to the people of Virginia, and incendiary in the object it waa raised to promote, and should be torn down on Friday, tho 27th day of July. Intelligence of this determination soon reached Occoquan, and on Monday night a republican meeting waa held thero to devise measures for the defence of the (lag pole. On the following morning Mr. J. C. Athey visited Washington, and sent to Governor 1/etcher the despatch which wo published yesterday. Whilst In Washington Athey made arrangements with certain republicans to Airnteh forty or fifty firearms, of approved make, with ammunition therefor, which were to be sent to Occoquan on Tuesday night by wagon. 7 The despatch rrom Governor Lctcher, however, induced the abandonment or this plan. On tho morning of the 27th (yesterday) the republicans hoisted the American fUg and tho party ensign bearing the names of Lincoln and Hamlin. At half past three o'clock the Prince William Cavalry, Capt. Thornton commanding, entered the village, and ranged thomaclves m the neighborhood of the pole. They were followed .by 1 a company of about forty strong, under command of ' Capta.n Filzbugh and Major Ctrier, who, paying no * attention whatever to the horsemen, quietly formed iu a 1 hollow square around the pole, lacing inwards. Whilst & this company was surrounding the pole, Mr. Joseph T. ' Jannty advanced to the captain of the troop of horse aud 11 > .. . .. . o ciBimeu jTwiwiwu ivr u:a upon Wtticn IDC pole stood. 1 At the word of command, James \Y. Jackson, of Fair- ' fax, a stalwart yeoman, sprang forward and gave the tost blow. Others followed, redoubling strok" on stroke. 1 Duriiie[tlio time there was no interruption, ?avo the re- 1 publicans and others who stood at corners near by would cry out, "Ain't your axe dull? Hope you're having a * good time," Ac. In a few minutes, however, there was t a try of' stand from under I"' ami the jiole canse to tho . ground. Instantly the crowd gave three ch< ere, when the repub- 1 licans responded by "Three cheers for Hamlin." All " were quickly at work on the fallen pol?, and In 1cm t me <i than II takes to teil It ?aa choppoU wp and the f.ecea jl Carried off. T*c Oaf ww ecnt to Brentsvlllo. I So ai the Otg pole waa levelled, Captain Filihu?h t ord"red -'about Ikce," and bis etiupany marched off, J,' sainted as they went by minfrM Jeers and applause. ? I> the evening there was some excitement, and a * p r?tnal rencontre t<v.k place between G>lorel Pra*ner and Joseph T. Janney, in which the latter waa consider- oi ably injured. The crowd cleared away during the evening, N and at sundown all was quiet. ^ Tb<s republican? say they will put ap another po!con a the same site. A report reached here to-night, through parties who [j were at Ocooquan yesterday, that the greatest excite- 0 meet prevailed at that place when they lef. that several Jj republicans bad >>e?n attacked, and severe flghfs resulted. fl One statement Is that Mr. Janney, a Bell and Kvorett man, ? ?an old settler in Virginia, a large property holder, and th<- 11 owner of the land where the liberty pole was erected? , was brutally as. a.led and beaten because he aHaerted that ' he had the right to doclyo bis own principles upon his own [io?r?Me?u, ana 10 permit oiuer* lo eierri?e the.r * right* within bia own grounla if it plowed him to do ao. * - - ~ f City Iatelllgeare. t ctmui r*KK Swajh.?
