ccptablo to you to hear from your

discussed in tho bar room nnd nt the

Tho Democrats hnvo hold their Con- j

composed of good sound Democrats,
If they should succeed, vWio is to wenr
the laurels t Hut for tho firm : First
comes my old friond Rriggs, Gov. Geo.

tho'Natlonnl Democratic party, if they
are, as they claim to be, the truo par

in the ranks of tho opposition party,
under the r.amo of tho "People's Tick-

defeat Gen. Lane. Noxt wo find him
in the Gaines campaign against Gen.
Lnno, soatcd in n hollow log on the
banks of Althouse, whero Tom Dryer
was administering tho solemn oath of
Know Nothing. Foreign citrons of

wo find him voting for Lavrson and
Watklns; of tho latter I will speak
moro hereafter; of tho former thero is
not subject enough to talk.
Next comes Dr. Wm. Wntktns. The;
nearest thing I can comparo him to is
Joseph's coat of many colors. Ho has
beon everything, whero tho filthy lucre i
could bo obtained. Whilst ho extends'
tho right hand of fellowship to tho no

ho Is n Black Abolitionist, ho has tn
