W her Cash the time a come when the voter of thi county Are called upon to make nominations or Candida la to fill the different office of Tia county and whereas party polities have Given piece to a More important question to it relates to this county even the removal of the Connly Seal from Danville to e More Central position a therefore citizens of Greenwood and fishing Creek townships adopt this plan to set Forth our views a regards the removal party in general. Flat we believe this neither of the four townships lying upon the head Waters of fishing Creek has had the Honor of giving s sheriff to the county of Columbia for which a Eavou we claim in the present Ca Vaea the privilege of having a candidate chosen from one of these four townships and hereby recommend Iram Derr of Jackson township As the Man of Oor Choice be being a removal Man. Secondly we Azaert that As we have heretofore urged and sustained the removal cause in this county we Atill stand firm in the aame Good cause. There fire resolved that we View any attempt made to distract the mind of the removal party from their main object by party politics As being detrimental to the beat interests of a Large majority of tha voters of ibis county. Retained that we recommend the for motion of a removal ticket Independent of political cola iteration but at the aame time giving each political party a share of the candidates in the ticket Thna formed. Resolved that As Oor enemy is a Subtle one we recommend a Union of action a there is a Union of interest in tha removal cause. Resolve do that Daniel 8nyder, our representative in the state legislature for the three last aes Aiona Baa stood Arm and unwavering you Nonea Ity maintained the beat interest of his constituents for which he merits Oor warmest approbation and we hereby i commend him the Man of our he once for member of the next legislature from thi county. Otto Loedy that a Bloom Haa had the treasurer and member of the legislature for the last three years she cannot reasonably expect the sheriff this year altho she has two candidates to the Field. Resolve do that notwithstanding we have set Forth our claims we Are pledged to sup port the whole removal ticket when fairly formed.

The scenery along that Noble Stream which a Oil winds its course around the lulls with their lofty precipices on one aide end the Fertile relies interspersed with Village end cultivated Arm on Tho other form a most Beautiful landscape. After leaving Northumberland the first town is Danville the seat of Justice Foi Columbia county a pleasant Little town actuate on the Bank of the liver contains some and Home dwell Inga court House several foundries three or four houses for Public to ship an acad Eray female Seminary die. Its location however is far from being a Good one As regards the Public Burinese of the county being Only the Width of the River from Northumberland doubly and but new mile Distant Tom the seat of Justice for that county. 1 am informed that it wat fixed upon As the teat of Justice through the management of some two or three ind Vidu at who owned considerable properly within its boundaries and cutrary to the Wilbea of e Large majority of the residents of the county on the East Side of the River and eight mile above Danville a Catta Wison a Small but apparently thriving place Aud four Miles above that on the West aide is Bloomsburg about one mile from the River and not far from the Junction of fishing Creek with the North Branch. Tia Creek runs a few Hun dred Yarda West of the town and i a Noble air Eara with plenty of water Power for Iron works or factories of any kind and would a a desirable situation Lor Capa Tiliti to Era bark Iatha manufacturing by sense especially that of Iron As there Are inexhaustible mines of Ore throughout that Whol Region. The town of Bloomsburg 1 would say contain something upwards of one Hundred dwelling four houses for Public worship an Academy several dry Good Aud grocery stores three hotels one of which is a spa coins three atty building and kept by or. Charles Doebler a gentleman Well qualified for the Burinese and provided with All the Good thing which tend to the Comfort of Ilia guest. Ilia table ii furnished with the delicacies of the season and the weary tra seller May Here find a comfortable resting place and will always find mine Host of the Bloomsburg House Quot al Hume ready to Wail upon any person who Calls loafers excepted. The situation of Bloomsburg is pleasant being on the South Side of a gentle Rice of ground descending gradually to the North Gianch Carat Sod from thence to the River and being nearly in the Centre of the county would appear to Render it the most proper place for the teat of Justice. It appears that the citizens of he county have kept s continued opposition to in present location Tod Bill after Bill by one or the other branches of the legislature have been passed at Dif Ferent times for lie Temov Tatj but have a ii heretofore failed in is said by a be unfair representations Ond sympathetic Appeal of the citizens of Danville to the member of the legislature. During the lest session a Bill for the removal passed the lower House by a Large majority and was detested in Ibe Senate by the opposition of the senator from the county under the Vrej specious pretext of a division of the county in which qui Otic measures the anti re Rauvala United As the Only Meaos of saving them from defeat. The Lemueal men 1 find Are again in the Field and intend selecting a representative in order to make it a Teal question and thereby Shew beyond a doubt that a Large majority of tha inhabitant Are decidedly in favor of removal. The removal of the Seal of Justice to a Mere Central part a a matter of which the people of Colombia county May Rutily demand a a right to which they Are Ciu Ulet and which ought to be ranted them by any legislative body acting or the general Benefit of the people. I should suppose one glance of the Eye on the map of the county would convince any candid Man that the Public building of the county Are now and always have been in the wrong place and the sooner they ate removed the sooner an act of Justice will be done to the people fit was wrong to hate them placed at Danville at first no subsequent act could make in right for their continuance.
