We are certainly within bounds when we state the numbers present at 5,000. Many estimates were higher. It was unquestionably the largest political moot ing ever held in the county. It was ateo the most effective and-satisfactory demon stration we ever attended anywhere. The day was very suitable, warm bwt agre ably tempered with a grateful breeze. The dust and the Douglas Democrats alone were i Some four or five very large 14 delegations Ottumwa. The former, from Dahlonega, was the largest, and was two miles long as displayed-on the march. It consisted of numerous wagons and other vehicles, a troupe of couple of young Ladies and Gentlemen residing at Long Point, Dahlone ga and the vicinity of inglon Township, scarcely on which a half dozen stalwart Republicans from Competine, Pleasant and other Town i ships in this county, and a good many ar- most orderly and systematic manner, but i noticed Maj.

Then it was that Samuel the Judge, spake unto Allen or Aminadabof the house of Bently, chief of the trnmpeters, to sound convention who should be their next scribe. 6. And when the sound was given, many of the people spake after this manner: 6. "Let us go up and make Norman scribe, for he is a good scribe, and comely to look upon, and he will be much pleased, and oor wives and daughters, delighted." 7. But it happened in those days that many others desired to ba scribe, in order that they might grow rich like unto Nor man, and the office of scribe was much to be desired. 8. Among these were Richard of the house of Rolliin, John of the tribe of Shelton, Harrison of the tribe of Kelsey, Mass Mcc'ting at Agency City.

And Aminadab's counsel regarding Harrison, is good and findeth favor in my eyes, but how are we to cast Clinton, of the tribe of Thomas from us. 2ft. Did I not promise this man Clinton my place, even twelve months ago, and many also of you have made like promises unto him, and otn his hands we have received many presents, and great help, he has also many friends, and, verily I say unto you, we must work this matter ingeniously, else they all will surely bolt, and great will bo our defeat in this land of Davis. 27. Then spake Samuel again, saying Aminadab must act as a friend to Clinton, and Daniel must electioneer for him, (over the left you know.) 28. And I am always neutral, at least peo pie think I am, therefore we will have it understood that the other Delegates when they fail with their candidates, must unite on Norman. 20. Now this will beat Clinton, and Nor man must say the people would bring me out even against my will, therefore, I will serve the dear people, even though you, Clinton, do become soar headed. 30. But be w ill think that it was all done by a converted clique in the delegation from the place called Drakeville, 81.
