be forced to ignore the question in their national platform or swede from their next national convention. They can not pass a pro-slavery platform and force the Abolitionists out,'as the Know- Nothings did: on the contrary, the Abolitionists will drive thenvout, and they will be left to choose between form ing a sectional organization and becom ing utterly powerless- or uniting their forces at the South with the National American party, and thus maul Aboli tion into a cocked hat 1 “ To this complexion mast it come at lost,' and gentlemen who wish to act wisely and patriotically bad as well make up their minds at once. The only ques tion for them to decide is a question of time. Some of them will probably bold on to the name of the old organization until it bursts up at the next national convention; while others as we think more wise than they, will at once unite with the pure and patriotic National American Party—which is, after all, but true Democracy, refined and puri fied of its dross—and buckle on their armor, ready for the fierce conflict of 1856. For the Southern Watchman Lawrenceville, June 19th, 1855. Mr. Christy : Sir : I beg permission to give through your paper, an account of the great meeting of the unterrified Democracy of this county, which, after being trumpeted by all the wire-pullers and party hacks, and advertised in flam ing hand bills at most, if not all, the store houses, justice's court grounds, cross roads, &c., through the county, came off yesterday ; and you mast know that Ex-Govei nor Cobb was present—boil ing and fuming with pent-up rage against poor unoffending Sam. Well sir, the appointed hour, eleven o’clock, finally arrived, and considerable ado was mad* at the court house, calling and bluster ing, to every body and every body’s brother to come in; they succeeded pretty well, in getting in all the friends and enemies of Sam into the court house, and I was informed by those present, both friends and enemies, that they supposed there were one hundred persons all told, and of this number at least one half are dead against Catholics, Foreigners, and the Cobb dynasty, and will vote foi any respectable opponent who will come out against him, and advocate the cause of the American Party. Various are the conjectures as to the causes operating upon the minds of the people, which prevented them from coming out to hear the great advo- ca.e of Catholicism. Some very shrewd ly suspected that it was on account of the harvest, whilst others thought it was the unpopularity of the speaker and his foreign principles. The truth is, Mr. Cobb has changed his political course too often in the last five years, to retain the confidence of the people. In 1859, he was engaged in saving the Union, and building up a great Union party upon the Georgia Platform, fight ing Gov. Johnson and all those who agreed with him, and denouncing them as sectionaiists and disunionists. In 1853, he is found battling against Charles J. Jenkins and tho Georgia Plat form, leaving the Executive Chair of Georgia, and stumping it through upper Georgia side by side and cheek by jowl with Gov. Johnson, moving heaven and earth to have Mr. Jenkins defeated, and denouncing all those as sectional who desired to see all the people of Georgia upon her own Platform. Now, in 1855, wo see this same veritable Howel Cobb stumping it through this District calling upon the people to elect him to Congress, and Johnson Govern or. Why, because he and Johnson are vow on the Platform of Georgia.— “When will wonders cease ?” I was conversing with a gentleman after the meeting, who said, “ is it possible that Cobb and Johnson can beat us.when they run against the Georgia Platform And beat us when they turn round and go for it I told him I thought not. The time was once when the Cx-Governor could do these things, but I thought he had lost the track in Gwinnett coun ty» That the people could no longe be gulled by him.” But, sir, to return The crowd being in, the Ex-Governor mounted the rostrum and pitched in right and left and banged the eyes of Sam, and « with the secret blade of Joab” gave him several stabs, and some of his friends remarked that the bells ought to be tolled, but upon examina tion it was found that the wounds were flesh wounds only and towards evening £5am sensed as vigorous as ever. In the course of his speech, l am informed {for I did not hear his speech,) he said that if the time should ever arrive that Catholics and Protestants should get into conflict riitd War, he would should pf his ryu'kq. and fight side by side with the Catholics against the Protestants.— That the Protestant Clergy who had united with and become members of the American Party had fallen from their high position'before the country for truth and integrity, —were bringing the Chris tian Ministry into disrepute, the Catho lics excepted of course, aud that time had arrived when they even prevari cated and would not tell the truth.— Well, sir, this is a fight that Mi. Cobb has got into with the Protestant Ministry of the country that he must get out of as best he may; there were several present, that will make this charge tel] at the ides of October. Mr. Cobb spent an hour abusing, villi- fying and denouncing the American party and their principles, and then turned round with an air of triumph and asked “ if your principles are good why not come out and advocate them, why light a candle and put it under a bushel.” Now, sir, this pretended ignorance "of Mr, Cobb is simply ridiculous. He knows the principles of the American Party as well ns you do, if he will read your paper or any other in Georgia , except the Democratic organs, .who. refuse to publish them. Or perhaps Mr. Cobb con siders (hem kept in the dark and under a bushel, unless published in his organ, the Southern Banner; that he and the Banner are alone in the light. Of this, let the people judge. A Friend of Sam. |t^ We are in the daily receipt of such letters as the following: “ June 19, 1855. “ Mb. Christy : I take my pen in hand to forward the names of some very staunch Democrats who desire to take the Watchman. Many of the old-line Democrats, who have been subscribers to the ,* say they can’t swallow the principles that are published in that sheet any longer, aud intend to have the paper stopped. The fact is, some of the Foreign Roman Catholic advocates in this county have been trying to keep the spirits of their party up by crying out "Democracy,” but it won’t do any longer. The people can’t see any De mocracy about it. It has Democracy’s coat on, but the interior looks too for eign. The hand is that of Esau, but the voice is Jacob’s. Their main prop is gone, as to its being a Whig measure. Stephens and Toombs have knocked all that into pi. Something has to be done. Sam is here, and there is a good pros pect for the Foreign office-seekers to fall with the buttered side down. Yours, respectfully, S.

It was first published in 1847, since which time Five Hundred Thousand Copies have been sold, of which there were upwards- of ouc hundred thousand sent hy mail, attesting the high estimation iu which it is held as a reliable popular Medi cal BOOK FOR EVERY FEMALE the author having devoted bis exclusive at tention to the treatment of complaints pecu- liarjto females, in respect to which he is yearly consulted by thousands, both in person and by letter. Here every woman can discover, by com paring her own symptoms with those de scribed, the nature, character, causes of, mid- the proper remedies for. her complaints.
