Mr. 1mt»r:-A Accordingly, under lite espionage of citizens who ought to have some sense of prop/iety and decorum, n couple of boys—almost young men— blacked them selvt- up like darkies, and acted like darkies—than which they can do nothing better—they persevered In Intultingthe Wide Awakes while the ladies were in procession. And they used language which is not1 fit to b- heard by ears polite, but which In their par-! lancc 1- their most sublime flights of speech. Failing to raise a disturbance Friday night, they retreated and held a council of war to prepare for fresh salies on the i Monday night following, which was last evening, And hating determined to cast the weight of the «g- i gresMou if possible, on the wld« awakes, they sound-! ed the ahrni and last evening (locked into town, and hung around the wide awukes like a thick cloud cf evil, tie menial* of the Agency Democracy. Early in the evening there was a fight between two email boys of the opposing parties, and that having raised lhc ixcitemcnt, tome wid« awakes spoke out, and suid the wide cwakes should be let alone, which raised the iro of some of the Democrats, and thenee it seemed they determined to have a fuss, for ln a body larger than the wide awakes they hovered around, nsln: insulting language, getting in the way, an not gotticgout, although politvly requested. The ladies desiring to await the arrival of the card, the wide awakes marched to the depot expecting to form on the platform, but the noble "Uutorrifled" having anticipated the desire, marched down in ad vance, and for.ned in solid phalanx on the atform, and being polit .'ly requested to give way for the la dles, moved "mry peg." The wide awakes not wishing to create a disturbance then peaceably marched away, escorted the ladles home, but while they were marshing away, the "L'n terrifled," but disappointed crew 011 the platform, shouted and shouted in glee, thinking they had awed the Lincoln men, and then hurriedly marched.after In guerilla style, and swiftly passed, aud gathered around the hickory ployed, and torian cheers for Lincolu, which was answered by the rabble giving three cheers for Douglas. Then the wide awakes give tliree hearty cheers for Pennsylva nia, which called forth no response. Then three will ing cheers were given for Indian* whieh were uot an swered, and then the wide awakes and liepubli can i pectators gave three for the Union, which the rabble answered by giving three cheers for "the White girls and the constitution. Mutters by this time grew pretty warm, some few of the company left the ranks while the majority were attending to some business, and having gone among the crowd, overheard some of the Democrats talk in sultingly of the ladies, aud one of the wide awakes knocked an insulter down,which raised a great com motion, and during the metre, some one injudiciously called for the "wide awakes," whereupon they all has. tened to the spot, but e'er they reached it they en counUred a few of the "I'nterriflud" bullies' one of which, a stalwart fellow, hailing I believe, from Ver mont, and one, I judge, who has more reason of pri. ding himself u Id lleenan, and yelled out,''Come Into lue," "Come into me," and while a Republican—not a Wide awake—was dolling his coat, hit him a blow that felled him to the e«rth, aud knocked him the second Mine e'er he had recovered from the first fall. 1 know it is revolting to publish such deeds, but tbe evil doings of the Agency Democracy must be uiads known.
