Though danger, as the wreck is near'd becomes
More imminent. N.,ti unseen do they approach;
And rapture, with varieties of fear
Incessantly conflicting, thrills the frames
Of those who, in that dauntless energy,
Foretaste deliverance; but the least perturbed
Can scarcely trust his eyes when he perceives
That of the pair-tossed on the waves to bring
Hope to the hopeless, to the dying, life-
One is a woman, a poor earthly sister,
Or, be the visitant other than she seems,
A guardian spirit sent from pitying heaven,
In woman's shape. But why prolong the tale,
('astinc weik words amid a host of thoughts
Armed to repel them ? Every hazard faced,
And difficulty mastered, with resolve
That no one breathing should be left to perish,
This last remainder of the crew are all
Placed in the little boat, then o'er the deep
Are safely borne, landed upon the beach.
And, in fulfilment of Gon's mercy, dodged
Within the sheltering lighthouse. Shout, ye

THE FORTUNES OF A COUNTRY GIRL.
One day-I will not say how many years ago,
for I intended to be very mysterious for a time with
my readers-a young woman stepped from a coun-
tr; w"aon that had just arrived at the yard gate of
ihe ai fawas Chelsea Inn, the Goat and Compasses
-a namin formed by corrupting times out of the
ioius original, "God eti'uripitt-if l us." The
young ng%%oman appeared about the age of eighteen,
and wa- decently dressed, though in the plainest
rustic ta-hi,,'n .f the i, .. ,. Slit was well formed
and will looking, ,:,th Ionu iail I,:k giving indica-

Th> youngg woman readily obeyed the invitation,
and scion. by the kindness of the landlady, found
herself Iiy th- fir -side of a nicely sanded parlor, and
where'rihhal i, refresh herself after t long and tedi-
ous otn mey.
"A nd so, my young girl," said the landlady, af-
ter ha' tng heard, in return for her kindness, the
whule ,.articulars of the young woman's situation
and history, "so thou hast come all this way to seek
service, and hast no friend but John Hodge, the
wagoner Truly he is like to give thee small help,
wench, toward getting a place."
Is service, then, difficult to be had I" asked the
young w'iinliir Sally.
"Al. marry e.-3,l situations, at least, are hard
to find. But have a good heart, child," said the
landlady ; and as l,. ,',t,tino,.d, -he.' looked around

The landlady's speech might hawe gone on a
long way-v-t,.r the dame li.,.d well tihe sound of her
ownT teongue---ut for the inlerruption occasioned by
the entrance of a gentleman, when the landlady
rose and welcomed him heartily.
"Ha! dame" said the new-comer, who was a
stout, respectably attired person of middle age, "how
sells the good old ale !--scarcely a drop left in the
cellar I hope."
"Enough left to give your worship a draught
after your long walk ;" and she rose to fulfil the
promise implied in her words.
"I walked not," was the gentleman's return;
but I took a pair of oars. danie, duwn the riser.
Thou knowealst I ala a. e come to Chelnea myself, to

BONAPARTE'S OPINION OF CHRIST.
The following conversation is said, we know not
with what authenticity, to have been related by
General Monthelon. Monthelon is well known as
the faithful adherent of Napoleon in his fall and his
amanuensis at St. Helena, in giving the world a
history of the life and times of the great warrior.
The sentiments are worthy of the greatest mere
man towards the greatest of all beings, who, though
immortal once, put on mortality, and became visi-
ble in the fashion of man.-Trade Reg.
I know men," said Napoleon, "and I tell you
that Jesus is not a man! The religion of Christ
is a mystery which subsists by its own force, and
proceeds from a mind which is not a human mind.
We find in it a marked individuality, which origi-
nated a train of words and actions unknown before.
Jesus borrowed nothing from our knowledge. He
exhibited in himself, a perfect example of his pre-
cepts. Jesus is not a philosopher, for hris proofs
are miracles; and from the first, his disciples adored
him. In fact, learning and philosophy are of no use
for salvation; and Jesus came into the world to re-
veal the mysteries of Heaven and the laws of the

rest the creations of our genius 1 Upon force. Je-
sus Christ alone founded his empire upon 1it', .
and, to this hour, millions of men wolild die for him.
"It was not a day, or a battle, that achieved
the triumph of the Christian religion in the world.
No; it was a long war, a contest for three centu-
ries, begun by the Apostles, then continued by the
flood of Christian generations. In this war, if all
the kings and potentates of the earth, were on one
side, on the other I see no army but a mysterious
force; some men scattered here and there in all
parts of the world, and who have no iAter rallying
point than a common faith in the imyteries of the
"I die before my time, and my body will be
given back to the earth, to become food for wormns.
Such is the fate of him who has been called the
great Napoleon. What an abyss between my deep
misery and the eternal kingdom of Christ, which is
proclaimed, loved, and adored, and which is extend-
ing over the whole- earth! Call you this dying ?
Is it not living rather ? The death of Christ is the
death ot God!"
Napoleon stopped at the last words; but General
Bertrand making no reply, the Emperor added:
"If you do not perceive that Jesus Christ is God,
I did wrong to appoint you General !"
WOMAN'S LOVE OF APPROBATION.
Woman was not made to live alone, any more
than man; and the absence of the natural assist-
ant of the gentle sex was felt in ways separate from
protection and support. All the actions of a woman
whether of useful industry or of ornament,, are sub-
ject to the approval and pleasure of the other sex,
to which their own are subordinate, and on which
they are founded. To descend to the humblest form
of this feeling: every one knows that, when a fair
lass has arrayed herself in her new gown or ribbons
or any finery put on for the first time, although the
admiration of her female acquaintance may give a
degree of pleasure, the applause or compliment of
one man is more valued than that of a thousand
women: and this feeling, modified by the circum-
stances of individuals, runs through the whole sex,
anmd is part of the nature of the human being, im-
planted in the heart by the Divine Artificer, to pro-
duce the most delicious fruit that grows in the gar-
den of human life. Women, by themselves, require
little to be comfortable; they can live without
bustle and without form; neither in beauty of rai-
ment, nor in delicacy of food, can they find happi-
ness, so long as they have it to themselves alone.-
They require to please the other sex, before they
can please themselves. A knot of old maids may,
to be sure, be bitterly merry over their tea and scan-
dal, and despise the other sex with profound disdain,
but there is something unnatural in their enjoyment;
nor does anybody suppose that the respectable spin-
ster's heart bounds with such a sweet human de-
light at the compliment of her female friends on
her neat room, darling spaniel, and strong tea, as
the heart of the cottager's wife, when her tired hus-
band tells her how nicely she has cooked his bit of
supper, and how prettily she looks in her clean cap.
It matters not whether the husband be the master
of a palace or the occupier of a hovel-whether his
day be spent in the sports of the field, the drudgery
of a profession, or the labor of the farm; the plea-
sure of the wife, and the object of her labor, are to
have a table comfortably spread at his return, and
to see that he enjoys the delicacies of the necessa-
ries which she has provided for him; whether the
provision be merely a piece of bread and cheese
and a snow-white table-cloth on the deal table, or
the rich soup, the superb joint, and the bottle of ex-
quisite wine, laid out in the magnificent dining-
room, the feelings of a woman relative to man are

funds, the amount would not have exceeded $80,-

that at the market prices of granite work of a like

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 7, 1843.
TO OUR READERS.
The co-existence of three rival democratic jour-
nals at the seat of our State -GoernmenL. each one
distinct from the others in sentiment and interest,
has long been openly deprecated by the great body
of the republican party. To this single cause,
more than to all others united, can be ira,', d Iist
of the jealousies, heart-burnings, and dlitrictioni,
that have unhappily convulsed the democracy of
PeinnAltanis in past years, not unfrequently men-
acing i;, ultimate and inglorious overthrow. This
circumstance has stood out in bold relief, confess-
edly, as the prolific partll of a train of multiplied
and aggravated party evils, and hence a union of
the three papers has long .onsntuted a desidwraouin,
foIr which eicryv devoted democrat has cherished ar-
It all'rds IS urfi irie] gratification to announce,
as it doubtless will .to th. democracy of the State
generally to learn, that this source of embarrass-
ment is now removed, and that the factious rivalry
and discordant .ntiment which were wont to ger-
nnnmate among the republican journals at the Capi-
tol, spreading from thence, "like the pestilence
that walketh in darkness," over the whole Com-
nmonwealth, will no longer exist. The election by
the la.t legidl-ature of a State Printer, resulting in
the choice of one of the proprietors, has happily
nnbl.d us to merge the i.ffive. of the Keystone,
Rel-.rter, and State Capitol Gazette, into a single
central establishment, devoted to but one single
and elevated purpose, the service of the great re-
publican party of the State and Union-and, as
the result of this harmonious association, we this
day usher into existence, in lieu of the other pa-
pers. an entire new journal, styled the "DEiMo-
f R iTir lSoN." de..ted to the men and measures
ot ihe reart repuitlican party, and deriving its name
from the auspicious circumstances which have
minmone,] it into being.
Deeply imnipreseed with the conviction, that the
pc rd has urnmtd % hen men have ceased to receive
with unqualified confidence mere theoretical pro-
fessions, however syren the voice that gives them
utterance; but that they have learned to suspend
their verdict until Time, the great arbiter of all
things human, shall have tested their sincerity; we
u...uld pref, r to let the world judge us by our fu-
ture actions rather than our present promises. Im-
memorial custom, however, seems to have establish-
ed it as part of the common law, that every new
lblie'otj,si sliall b. preceded by some sort of au-
ti'i\,ipe.J ]r,.gi-resoi, indicative of what the public
may, or may not, expect from it. This golden
rule, rendered venerable by its antiquity, we find
it impossible to violate, however strong our inclina-
tion. Accordingly we proceed to yield it our obe-
dience, and submit our brief chart to the public
As its title pro-supposes, the "UItox" will be
thoroughly and radically democratic. The pub-
lishers themselves having been reared and nurtured
in the love of Jeffersonian democracy, the joint
product of their labors cannot of course fail to be
imbued with the same lofty and patriotic principles.
Fortunately for us all, these doctrines are well de-
fined, easily comprehended, and Euhrt,-t neither to
doubt, caprice, or speculation. In times past they
have served as the "pillar and the cloud," to guide
the destinies of our country successfully through
the mazy labyrinths devised by despots without and
wiley aristocrats within. Three constitute part and
parcel of the great system of free and equal gov-
ernment which is at once our security arid boast-
were infused into our glorious institutions at their
birth, have "grown with their growth and strength-
ened with their strength," and are indissolubly in-
terwoven with our national destiny. Among these
hallowed and fundamental doctrines, as recognized
and taught at the present day, we may briefly enu-
merate the following:
1. A strict construction of the Federal constitu-
tion, denying to the Nati,.nal Government the ex-
ercise of any power not delegated to it by the ex-
press terms of the instrument-regarding every
other grant, like the Ark of the Covenant, as too
sacred to be touched-and reserving its exercise
exclusively to the States and the people.
2. As a necessary corollary, iiio,ron.itg
hostility to the establishment of a National Bank,
however novel and diversified the Proteus shapes
and guises it may assume-such a power existing
only by the direst contortion of the spirit and letter
of the constitution, and bitter experience having
ra.:fld it as fatally subversive of individual hap-
piness and national freedom.
3. An utter denial to the General Government
of the right-passing the expediency of the matter
by, sub silentio-of embarking in any wild and
visionary schemes of Internal Improvement, either
by absolute usurpation, or by the modem and more
insidious policy of assumption of the State debts-
federal heresies fraught with imminent peril and
4. Unqualified opposition to the distribution poli-
cy, being inconsistent with the genius and charac-
ter of our Institutions, the more espece.ll, in tht
present embarrassed condition of our .Ni ,tonal fi.
5. A thorough and radical reform of the banking
system by the State governments. In this impor-
tant category we embrace as points of cardinal vir-
tue: the individual liability of the stock-holders--
the power of repeal by the legislature-the restraint
of paper issues within the pale of immediate re-
demption-the prevention of the isfue of small
notes and inconvertible shinplasters--the infusion
of a larger portion of the precious metals into the
circulating medium-and, in our own State, Ra-
SUMPTION of specie payments by the banks, or
LituiiJATIru, and a gradual withdrawal from cir-
eulation of the mis-called Relief Issues.
6. Last, but not least, a full and unconditional
endorsement of the ancient and time-honored usages
of the democratic party, involving absolute submis-
sion to the decrees of all conventions, meetings,
and tribunals, held and conducted according to the
recognized party Trde--surh bhing igt. only meth-
(d by a lich a conentoarion oif the Herculean forces
of the democratic party can be effected, and such
the only spirit by which its integrity and ascenden-
cy can be at all successfully maintained.
To the furtherance of these cardinal articles iv.
the democratic creed, and the political advancement t
of men pledged to their faithful maintenance, th e
" DEMOCRATIC UNION" will be ardently, zealously y,
and unceasingly devoted. For their permanent re-
establishment in the administration of the Natio nal
Government, by the election of a Chief Magist rate
identified with them in theory and practice, we pro-
mise to labor at the oar with untiring diligen ce- I
whether it shall prove our fortune to be waftei I into
the desired haven by calm and auspicious gal es, or
whether we be doomed to buffet the billovi of a
rough and tumpesmous 'odage. The next Presi-
dential battle will be f ought and won" mainly
with reference to these transcendent imsuea and it
behooves the Democracy to gird on their v hole ar-
ar for t&e coming s'niQgle, Nevpr du a more
solemn and imposing obligation rest upon them
than now, to re-kindle the vestal flame that warm-
ed into life Ihe immortal doctrines of the fathers of

statesmanship, whose brow is entwined with a
moral wreath of unfading verdure, and whom she
will present with enthusiastic unanimity as her
choice for this distinguished honor. Should fate
smile, and her aspirations be crowned with success,
the day and the event will prove eminently auspi-
cious to our future destiny. If, however, the gods
decree otherwise, and the National Convention se-
lects a different candidate, he, too, (knowing that
the choice will not fall upon any one unworthy of
it,) shall be cheered and supported by us to the ut-
most limit of our abilities. On this question, as
on every other, it will be our unwearied study to
pour oil upon the troubled waters-to allay, instead
of excite, the rising storm-and to inculcate, upon
all occasions, in a spirit of generous and magnani-
mous forbearance, the sublime sentiments of the
patriotic Benton: "UNIoN AND HARMONY-SELF-
DENrAL-CoNCESSION-EvzaT THING FOR THE
CAUSE--NOTHING FOR MEN."
But, whilst we shall thus unceasingly in'oke a
spirit of amity and concord, inciting our republican
brethren to "dwell together in unity," our pacific
intentions shall never betray us into silence, when
infidelity and corruption rear their hideous crests in
the high places of government. We shall forever
"cry aloud and spare not" against all those faith-
less public agents who make it a practice to "steal
the livery of the court of Heaven to serve the de-
vil in." We shall denounce, if need be, "from the
house-tops," all hypocritical pretenders to Democra-
cy, who wear its unsullied garb as a mere cloak to
reach by stealth places of power and profit-and,
having reached them, throw it cavalierly off, impu-
dently revealing their turpitude and the people's
error. To all such political jugglers, "men of
principle in proportion to their int, rest," this jour-
nal can never lend even the curi, '% of silence, for
we hold that charity to such would be cruelty to
the honest and the good!
He is a bad surgeon, who for pity spares
The part corrupted, until the gangrene spreads
And all the body perishes."
In conclusion, we assure the democrats of this
and other States, that we have resolved to spare no
sacrifice to render the "DEMOCRATIC UNioN"
worthy, in all respects, the high character of a
State paper. In our efforts to consummate a matter
so desirable, we have enlisted some of the ablest
political writers in the Union, whose contributions
shall frequently enrich our columns. We have
also made preparations to publish fuller and ampler
reports of the debates in our State Legislature, pro
and con, than have yet been furnished by any of
the papers. Our miscellaneous and news depart-
ments shall likewise receive appropriate attention,
and generally we shall seek in all things to deserve
public confidence, esteeming that the most certain
method of obtaining it.
Our Subscription List.
The union q, the three Demtocratic papers, for
the 'I sake ofl' THE UNioN," has put us into posses-
sion of a subscription list far more numerous than
has eve- ,ifo're I., n enjoyed by any permanent
journal iut.bh.rd at Harrisburg. After making all
erasures of such names as were contained on all the
lists, lopping off delinquents, and curtailments of
every sort, we find that there are still not far from
5000 subscribers, good and true, left standing on
our lists. This very extensive circulation in every
county of the state will afford advertising patrons
a chance but seldom afforded, to give their notices
the most wide-spread I..blicirt. We shall take
great pleasure in accommodating merchants, trades-
men, and others, in that way. An advertisement
inserted in the UnioN will unquestionably inure
sreaily to the benefit of him who has it inserted-
and, at the same time, will do us no injury. What
we mean by the remark, is, the advantages will be
o0: It is with pleasure we announce to our
friends we have secured the valuable services of
EDWIN W. HUTTER, Esq., as one of the principal
editors of the "D41iocAT'ric UNIoN." Theacknow-
ledged abilities of that gentleman as a strong and
,-wrr-tic writer, and his early and ardent devotion
to the great principles of the Democratic party, will
be a sure pledge for the faithful discharge of his
That 23,000 Majority.
We learn that Governor Porter, when seeking
to extenuate his numerous political tergiversations,
and in order to prove that lie is itut hle rereani De-
mocrat the world takes him to I, i- irry nni'h in
the habit of boasting of the 23,000 Democratic ma-
jorir\ he received at his second election. In this,
we hold, he commits an egregious error. The
Democracy of Pennsylvania always battle for PaIN-
CIPLEs, never for mere MEN, and he must not flat-
ter himself that when they marcid ,.1 iin solid pha-
lanx to. the polls in 1841, and gave him their votes,
they subjected themselves to so much trouble merely
on his account, but they did so because they
hoped and believed he would carry out the princi-
ples they have so close at heart. The moment he
deserted those principles, that moment the People
deserted him. He should remember, also, the
political fate of poor ScaULZE, who was elected a
second time without a co mpetitor, and nevertheless
retired from office universally detested. Schulze
wrecked his fortunes by attempting to transfer the
Democracy to John Quincy Adams. Porter has
sealed his doom by seet :ing to hand them over to
John Tyler. Both hat ,e split upon the same rock,
and will soon be fightii ig under the same banner.

phant success and the total defeat o" iL' enendiit-

Whilst threk it a pi.rfi-L agreement a-4 ti, the

unanimity around the glorious banner bearing aloft
the war-cry which finds a responsive echo in every
part of the Union-the watch-words that are heard
in their simple majesty swelling to the heavens
from the hardy North to the sunny South, from the
industrious and intellectual East to the boundless
magnificence of the mighty West-there are some,
who, apparently forgetful of the true issue, seem
determined to lug into the contest feelings too gro-
velling for a (aure so holy, too contracted for a
consummation so important.
That principles cannot be carried out without
the aid of men, and ihat r.aL, qu:lily the services
of tried and t.siliful atntris are nearly as important
in the development of principles as are the abstract
doctrines themselves, is too obvious to require proof.
But when the measures have all been previously,
by common consent, agreed upon, and the men are
one and all pledged to sustain them, and competent
to redeem the obligation, can there be any real ne-
cessity for this wild devotion to mere names which
some of our republican brethren manifest? Can
it make any real difference whether lhe National
Convention shall meet in Baltimore or Boston, in
Pittsburg or Philadelphia? whether it shall assem-
ble in November or in May ? whether the delegates
be chosen in this way or the other?
If the sub-treasury edifice is to be re-constructed,
what boots it who is to be the master-builder? Is
a national bank to be vetoed-an unconstitutional
tariff to be rejected-the assumption of the State
debts to be prevented-or any other federal heresy
to receive the coup de grace from a republican
President-what mi.imi-r; it whose hand it is that
strikes the blow ? Do the great mass of republi-
cans care who d.
efficiency ? They ask for results. They look to
the ends to be achieved, and are comparatively in-
different whether they be effected by the calm, safe
and never mistaken statesmanship of Mr. Buchan-
an or Mr. Van Buren-by the ardent patriotism
and heroic energy of Gen. Cass or Col. Johnson-
or by the stern and inflexible determination of Mr.
The democracy of Pennsylvania are for Penn-
sylvania's favorite son-not because he is the only
man they can rally upon, but because he will unite
them in a stronger phalanx than any of the others.
They have declared, and do still declare themselves
unconditionally committed to his interests, because
he is Pennsylvania's favorite champion of demo-
cratic principles, and she has as much reason to
love and cherish his fame, as New York has to
husband that of Mr. Van Buren, or the Palmetto
State to take pride in elevating Mr. Calhoun.-
Pennsylvania democrats go for JAMES BU-
CHANAN with an ardor that will know no rest,
until they reach the portals of the National Con-
vention, when they will consign him to that high-
est of all political tribunals-the tribunal of the last
resort-in full confidence that it will do him and
his transcendent merits full and ample justice.
If sustained there-as they hope and believe HE
WILL BE-they shall be most happy to see (as
they unquestionably will see) the democratic party
throughout the land unite with one accord in his
support-for he who will then falter in his duty,
and refuse to answer at the roll-call, will not de-
serve the name of democrat. If he fails in procur-
ing the nomination, the enthusiasm they now cher-
ish for him will be transferred during the campaign
to his more fortunate competitor, and we are well
assured that in such event Mr. Buchanan himself
will be the very first to fling all views of personal
ambition to the winds, by lending the aid of his
great name to the cause of the nominee. If the
Convention selects the gallant JOHNSON, whose
very name is an eye-sore to the enemies of civil
and religious liberty, we will have in the "Hero of
the Thames" a man who never flinched in the
hour of trial, or betrayed those who trusted in him.
If CAss, we will feel that our destinies will be
committed to the hands of one, who, having care-
fully guarded the interests of his country when
abroad, will never prove recreant to them at home.
If CALHOUN, we will have an intellectual Colossus
to rally around, whose mind is as vast as the coun-
try to which he is so devoted. If, in view of by-
gone days, the Convention again presents to the
nation the name of Mr. VAN BuREM, who, like
Aristides of old, was banished for his fidelity, the
past will prove an ample guarantee for the security
of the future. So that, under any combination of
circumstances, if we but remain true to ourselves-
discard personal considerations-and unite with a
spontaneous good will in support of the regular
nominee-the cause of democracy, whose principles
are in such perfect harmony with our republican
institutions, will be eternally perpetuated, and move
forward in a career of uninterrupted triumph.
If ever there lived an unfortunate man, "Harry
of the West" is surely one. With talents of the
highest order, and a political career fraught with
events of general and acknowledged consequence, he
has nevertheless been doomed to perhaps as many
disappointments as any ambitious statesman living.
Years upon years have rolled round since he first
cast "longing, lingering looks" upon the Presiden-
tial chair, and yet he occupies it not. With friends
warm, and true, and enthusiastic, as ever politician
had, he has swept on towards the goal of his aspi-
rations as boldly and with as free a flight as ever
eagle soared. But just as he was stooping to seize
the noble prize "times and ways without number,"
some rude blast has invariably sprung up which
again dashed him rudely to the earth. The Presi-
dency, like the bird in the fable, has ever been
dancing before his delighted vision, but is always
perched upon the tree immediately beyond his
reach. He is "always to be, but never blest." The
inauguration of Gen. Harrison brought him in
closer proximity to his wished-for haven than he
had ever been before, and yet scarcely had he seized
the reins from that honest but superannuated man,
when Providence mysteriously removes the Presi-
dent to "another and a better world," and Mr. Clay
is again foiled in his expectations. He has thus
constantly lived a walking demonstration that the
renowned gold-diggers, who have an hundred times
reached the very lids of the concealed treasure, but
which, just at the moment of opening, has again
vanished from the sight, are not wholly the crea-
tures of superstition. Even now, whilst his friends
are again crowding around him in anxious groups,
in the hope of uniting the masonic whigs with the
anti-masons, by running him for President and
Scott for Vice President-whilst the sky seems
tranquil, and serene and the star of Hope is beam-
ing-even now there comes a voice from the refrac-
tory East, conveying terror to his soul and warning
him of thick coming disappointments. Daniel
Webster will yet be the Blucher of this political
Napoleon, and the next Presidential election his

To the man who sincerely cherishes the welfare
of the republican party, the unqualified condemna-
tion o. Governor Porter is very far from being a
source of unalloyed satisfaction. On the contrary,
we newer refer to him without experiencing emo-
n.,ns much nearer akin to sorrow than to anger.-
\\We vould, if we could, infinitely rather speak
vl if him than evil. Having been among his
farlieit and most zealous advocates, at a time when
we Miieed him honest, it is very far from being
a1 a .reable task to chronicle his transgressions,
now :hat we have discovered him the reverse.-
We Vould derive even more delight from the ob-
servaice of studied silence, if silence were not
strictly incompatible with duty. But as sentinels
on the democratic watch-tower, planted there by
the wi,.- of the people's representatives, we have
a higli and solemn obligation to discharge. We
will discharge it, too, by treating of measures as
they deserve, irrespective of the men that advocate
Pihaps no other public man in the United
States, of equal pretensions, has ever been blessed
with rich a rare combination of opportunities to
enshine himself deeply in the popular heart, as
have fallen to the lot of Gov. Porter. For a while
fate wanemed to have thrown open to him the vesti-
bule fame and distinction. What man so cal-
lous is not to have envied him the democratic
noraintion for Governor in 1838? The adminis-
tration that preceded him had been reckless and
improvident to a degree without a parallel. The
public heart panted with deep impatience for the
day of deliverance, and David R. Porter was se-
lected by the democratic party as the instrument
for its achievement. The fierceness of the contest
is well remembered, as having summoned into re-
quisition all the elements of indignant virtue on
the one hand, and official desperation on the other.
The result is matter of history. The democratic
party achieved a triumph over odds of the most
fearful ciarB-Lr, and Mr. Porter was elected. But
even then the hurly burly" was not yet over-
the battle was not yet "lost and won." The
peaceful Capitol of the State was first converted
into a fierce military camp, and amidst the waving
of plumes, the gleam of the bayonet, and the roar
of artillery, did a republican people secure to their
Governor elect the chair of State. Who that re-
members the perils of the "Buckshot War," and
reflects upon the tumultuous passions which the
democracsey was doomed to encounter, will hesitate
to declare: Governor Porter had at his command
the mesas to render himself an idol in the popular
affectior.s-his name might have been wafted to
posterity accompanied by pans of applause-he,
of all men, should have been the very last to de-
mean himself treacherously and ungratefully to
the part! that perilled so much in his behalf!
But, alas-how has David R. Porter met all
these generous sacrifices? How has he justified
the high-wrought anticipations of the gallant band
that risked their very lives in his defence 1 Let the
echo of many times ten thousand voices answer.
Instead of avoiding the shoals and quick-aandas of
Ritnerism, he has stranded upon the same rock,
and his vessel has been lost in the same engulph-
ing whirl-pool. Instead of now being an object
of sanctimonious reverence, his name is execrated
by the virtuous and good of ALL parties. Of the
many stern and unflinching newspaper sentinels,
who labored for his elevation like toilsome galley
slaves, he is now anathematized by all but a meagre
dozen, whose interest alone prompts them to com-
misserate with him in his fallen condition. His
towering ambition which acquired accelerated stim-
ulus to further daring from each superadded suc-
cess, has at length been completely crushed under
the ponderous weight of his own corruption.-
From the dreams of absolute dominion with which
this Napoleon of politics was wont to be amused,
he suddeol4 finds himself on the St. Helena of his
career, there to realize "in sack-cloth and ashes"
a sense of true ignominy and shame. The sun of
his glory has sunk forever, and the vital essence of
his once gigantic power has dwindled down to
nothing more than the pecuniary aggrandizement
of a few friendly family-worshippers!
What strange and startling phenomena has
wrought this sudden revulsion? The answer is at
hand. Governor Porter has forfeited the high
character he once possessed for sterling integrity
and honor, and from the title of a patriot he has
succeeded to that of the vilest demagogue. The
people have discovered that his assumed democra-
cy is a cheat, his pretended honesty an imposition.
They have learned to their sorrow that he has not
now, and probably never has had, a single feeling
in common with the patriotic party to whose disin-
terested efforts he owes every jot and tittle of his un-
merited importance. He stands publicly convicted
of a close and mysterious ALiIANCE WITH THE Mo-
NET PowEa, and of making common "dause with
the most debauched of bank borers and speculators.
It has been satisfactorily ascertained, that he has
vetoed a bill granting indulgences to the banks on
one day, and invoked the very gods to secure its
passage by two-thirds the next-thus adding that
most detestable of human sins, HYPOcRIsY, to the
dark catalogue. To these grave offences must be
added his oft-repeated interference against the reg-
ular nominations of the democratic party-his ap-
pointment of uncompromising Tyler Whigs to
office--his bestowal of lucrative stations upon
members of his own house-hold, offending thereby
against every possible dictate of delicacy and pro-
priety-his unblushing essay to transfer the demo-
cratic party to a treacherous Whig, in considera-
tion of an appointment to his brother worth $6000
per annum, with the benefit of contracts-and last,
though far from least, his alarming usurpation of
the legislative and judicial functions of govern-
ment, thereby striving to convert himself into a
despot more formidable than the Autocrat of all
All these atrocious offences have had the natural
and unavoidable tendency to estrange from Gover-
nor Porter the esteem and approbation of the de-
mocracy of Pennsylvania-to turn the sources of
love into springs of hatred-and to convert the
sunny fields of Porterism from a fair and fascinating
picture, rich in beautiful and variegated scenery,
into a mere stagnant pool, full of the dregs of
misery and seeds of death. He may, in imitation
of a certain foolish bird, run his head into Helve-
tius and imagine himself concealed,'because he
does not himself see that he is seen, but his doom
is not the less overwhelming. The catastrophe
that has thus suddenly overtaken him, may be
made a profitable moral to others. In it the public
man may behold, as in a mirror, an impressive ad-
monition, never to forsake duty for interest-never
to trifle with that stem public sentiment, which is
slow to anger, but terrible in revenge!
James Madison Porter has appointed his nephew,
Samuel Humes Porter, acting Secretary at War

A letter from Washington also says: "A dis-
creditable act was committed yesterday by Mr. R.
Tyler and his indiscreet acting Secretary of the
Navy. The body of Major Seldon, late Navy
Agent, was scarcely cold, before his place was filled
by a nephew of the President, who, it seems, had
already a salary of $1,200 in one of the Depart-
ments. Nepotism (fondness for nephews) is the
order of the day; and sons, brothers, nephews,
uncles, and, for aught I know, aunts, are thickly
congregated at the Capitol, watching the move-
ments of the President and his subordinat es, and,
hyena-like, snuffing and preying upon the I ,odies of
the victims of Death and Executive treachf ry."

The reader must not infer from the above caption,
iat we are aboul to record another batch of cabinet
emovals and appointments by President Tyler.
mngular to relate, we have not heard of any inter-
sting occurrence of this sort for the last three
r four weeks, although before that they were as
plenty as "melancholy suicides," deplorable casu-
lities," "horrid murders," "railroad accidents."
r even distressing instances of "insanity." Our
,ject is solely to condemn in a general sense the
utirely too frequent and rapid change of cabinet
advisers ever since Mr. Tyler has occupied the Presi-
ency. Than this, perhaps no single circumstance
more forcibly exemplifies his lamentable instability.
Before one set of counsellors have become fairly en.
consed in their seats, some slight shade ot political
difference springs up between them and their patron
-when presto their necks are unceremoniously

lew-coUsArs have scarce had lame to ilvtlgalte their
itle-papers-they have as yet been afforded not even
a decent opporturty to become familiar with the
tang of the building"-.when they are also, in turn,
orcibly ejected, at perhaps less than forty-eight hours
notice. To-day Bell and Ewing tickle the presiden-
ial ear with their flattering bank tales-to-morrow's
sun finds them "o'er the hills and far awa," and-
others have become the reigning spirits. Now Bad-
ger is lord of the ascendant, and an.on the upshot is
hat Upshur takes his place. Spencer recently
sported an hour or so in the War Department, but
not understanding Indian" affairs equal to Porter,
he soon took passage for a different locality. By
he latest advices, we believe, he was flourishing in
he Treasury. Thus the Tyler cabinet has been a
perfect Kaleidescope, the colors varying with every
turn ofthe hand. The much abused John Jones
of the Madisonian seems, indeed, almost the only
stick of "lumber" in the whole edifice that possesses
he quality of adhesion. We are aware that all
things human are ikteming and uncertain, but we
know of nothing that way be considered more so
than the appointments of John T %ler. He whose
misfortune it is to holil one. had better immediately

lure more than a month or two. According to the
old adage that rolling stones gather no moss," it
is not matter of wonder that Tylerism has never
grown beyond the size of a mere pebble, for it is on
the roll perpetually. All this is decidedly wrong,
and must leave the government in the hands of in-
competent men, but it serves to exhibit Mr. Tyler's
VALUABLE STrocKs.-The Hartford (Conn.)

would soon starve.
CoVGEnzssIoxAL ELECT ons.-Another election

trial for it-took place in Massachusetts on Mon-

tion of candidates for Canal Commissioners, has
been ordered by the Central Committee of thatparty,
to be holden in this place, on Wednesday, Sep-
tember b6. The Democratic Convention meets the
day previous. Thus whiggery is forever behind.
A REASONABLE ScooasTio.-'The Bangor
Whig expresses the belief, that the object of Presi-
dent Tyler's coming to New England on the 17th
of June, is to give a party cast to the Bunker Hill
celebration. It suggests, therefore, in order that
sufficient distinctness may be given to the Tyler
interest on the occasion, that it would be well to
convene a grand mass meeting ofthe Tyler party
of the United States, upon the top of the monu-
ment. An abundance of seats could be reserved
for the ladies. The party-adds the Whig-could
be taken over from Boston in the Charlestown
hourly Omnibus at a single trip.
MASSACHUSETTs.-The whigs of the Bay State
hold a state convention to nominate a candidate for
Governor, on the 7th of June. It is believed that
John Davis will again be nominated.

"THE DEMOCRATIC UNION."
We alluded recently to the contemplated union
of the democratic papers at Harrisburg, which is
about to take place the coming week; and we ad-
vert to it again with pleasure, inasmuch as we con-
sider the movement of great importance to the
democracy of the State; more so, probably, than
any circumstance which has transpired for a long
period of time. That the paper will be ably con-
ducted and zealously maintain the best interests of
the Commonwealth, we have no doubt, and as a
party paper, the best guarantee for its faithful and
zealous devotion may be gathered from the evi-
dences already established in behalf of its conduct-
ors. There is, however, a prominent consideration
to be attended to, and we would endeavor to im-
press it forcibly upon all the democratic citizens of
the Commonwealth, which is an efficient support.
To make the paper what it should be, it is essen-
tially necessary that it receive the most liberal sup-
port of the party of the State.
The Bedford Gazette of the 2d instant furnishes
a graphic and interesting account of the military en-
campment which "came off" in that beautiful town
recently. It is described by the editor as "one of the
most splendid ever witnessed in Pennsylvania."
The Bedford Artillerists, Capt. Martin-Independ-
ent Grays, Capt. Taylor-Williamsburg Blues,
Capt. Fluck-Washington Blues, Capt. Austin-
Hollidaysburg Greys, Maj. Williams-Cambria
Guards, Captain Smith-Stoystown Guards, Capt.
Hibe--and Schellsburg Artillerists, Capt Fry-
were the companies in attendance. The command
was conferred on Maj. Williams, who is reported to
have discharged his duties very satisfactorily. The
troops were reviewed by Gov. Porter on Thursday
-and on Friday inspected by Maj. Keller, and on
Saturday again reviewed by Major General Bow-
man and staff. "OOn Sunday at 10 o'clock the
whole line was formed without arms, and under the
conduct of their officers, moved without music to
the Presbyterian Church, where an appropriate ser-
mon was delivered by the chaplain." The Gazette
adds, that the town was literally crammed with
people from the surrounding towns and neighbor-
hood, who were all highly gratified with the cere-
monies. Appropriate civilities were also properly
extended to the Governor of the state, the guest of

Delegates representing the Anti-masonic branch of

a vast deal of maneuvering, and no inconsiderable
degree of bickering, (the whole particulars of which

nominations were agreed upon:
For Congress.-NEvILLE B. CRAIG, Esq., one

"He was waited upon by our citizens generally,
who all, with one accord, extended to him the hand
of friendship, and welcomed his arrival with every
demonstration of the high regard they entertained
for his eminent talents, distinguished services, and
pure republican principles. This was the first time
many of our citizens had an opportunity of seeing
and conversing with the man, who has justly ac-
quired the enviable distinction of "Pennsylvania's
favorite Son," and we are warranted in saying, that
not one left him without receiving stronger impres-
sions in his favor. A public dinner was tendered
to him, which he declined, in consequence, no doubt
of the peculiar attitude in which he now stands in
reference to the presidential question, lest his mo-
tives in visiting this section of the country, which
were purely of a business character, should be mis-
understood and misrepresented. On Sunday fore-
noon he attended divine service of the Presbyterian
Church, and in the evening, in consequence of the
urgency of his appointments, set out in company
with Mr. Reynolds, for ILucinda furnace, about ten
miles to the north-east of this place."
A Compliment well deserved.
The sincere and ardent devotion of Mr. Jefferson
to the agricultural portion of society was proverbial.
He was wont to regard the industrious "tillers of
the soil" as the chief prop upon whose patriotism
and energies our country must rely in any eventful
crisis. In his "notes on Virginia" he pays the
farming interest the following eloquent tribute,
which is as beautifully expressed as it is just and
"Those who labor in the earth are the chosen peo-
ple of God, if ever he had any chosen people, whose
breasts he has made his peculiar deposit for sub-
stantial and genuine virtue. It is the focus in
which he keeps alive that sacred fire, which other-
wise might escape from the earth. Corruption of
morals in the mass of the cultivators is a pheno-
menon of which no age nor nation has furnished
an example. It is the mark set on those, who, not
looking up to Heaven, to their own soil and indus-
try, as does the husbandman, for their subsistence,
depend for it on the casualties and caprice of cus-
tomers. Dependence begets subservience and ve-
nality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares
fit tools for the danger of ambition. It is the man-
ner and spirit of a people which preserve a Re-
public in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a can-
ker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and
South Carolina on the Presidency.
A Democratic State Convention convened at
Columbia, on the 22d and adjourned on the 24th
ultimo, to express the sentiments of the State on
the great question of the next Presidency-Hon.
W. SEABaROOK in the chair, assisted by nix Vir
Presidents. A committee of 15 reported a series of
resolutions, and another of 21 an address to the
Democracy of the Union, which were unanimous-
ly adopted by the convention. As was universally
expected, the Hon. JOHN C. CALHOUN is urged
in both, as South Carolina's first choice for the Presi-
dency, and the claims of that giant Statesman ad-
vanced in terms of glowing enthusiasm.
The fourth Monday of May, 1844, is recom-
mended as the time, and Baltimore as the place of
meeting of the Democratic National Convention--
although, we regret to add, nothing is expressedin
the proceedings, binding the Democracy of South
Carolina to acquiescence in the decision of that tri-
bunal, should it be adverse to the pretensions of
their favorite. It may, nevertheless, be unjust,
from the omission of any distinct pledge on that
head, to infer, that such unwillingness to abide by
the decision of the majority really does exist-and
we are loth to believe it, until we can perceive, as
the Homaeopathic doctors say, some stronger
symptoms" of the fact.
As to the manner of choosing the delegates by
the several states, and of voting in convention after-
wards, the following resolutions were adopted:
Resolved, That in the opinion of this convention,
the Democratic Republican Party in the several
states, ought to appoint to the said general conven-
tion as many delegates from each state, as such
state is entitled to in the Electoral College of the
Union, under the constitution ; two of the delegates
for each state to be appointed for the said state at
large, by a state convention, or by democratic re-
publican members of the legislature of the said
state, in convention; the remaining delegates to be
chosen, one for each congressional district, by the
people thereof, in those states which are divided in-
to congressional districts, and where there are no
such districts, then to be chosen in such manner as
the Democratic Republican Party in such state
may deem most advisable, and best calculated to
insure the true expression of the will of the people.
Resolved, That the vote-in the said general con-
vention should be per capital, each delegate's vote
counting for itself only ; a rule consecrated by the
genius and principles of the constitution, and
equally indispensable to securing a true expression
of the popular will, and the protection of the just
rights of minorities.
Resolved, That this convention recommend to
the people of the several congressional districts of
this state to elect a delegate each, to represent them
respectively in the said general convention; the
said delegates to be chosen by the people of each of
the said districts in such manner as they may re-
spectively determine upon ; and that the delegates
to this convention be, respectively, appointed com-
mittees to bring the subject of this resolution to the
consideration of the people of their respective dis-
tricts and parishes, at such time as will insure an
election of delegates to the general convention, on
or before the first Monday in April next
Resolved, That this Convention proceed forth-
with to elect two Delegates to represent the State
at large in the general convention to be held in
Under the last resolution, the Hon. F. H. Ea-
tORE and Hon. F. W. PICKE-S were unanimous-
ly elected Senatorial delegates to represent South
Carolina in the National Convention.
The Democracy of other states will, of course,
bestow on these resolutions, which are merely re-
commendatory of a certain mode of proceeding, be-
coming and respectful consideration. We hold to
the doctrine, however, that each state possesses the
right to select its own delegates, in its ot.nn nn-
ner, irrespective of the action of sister states.-
Pennsylvania has already determined that she will
elect her delegates in the mode to which she has
been long accustomed, viz: by a STATE CON-
TENTIoN-and we doubt much, whether any
thing can occur to induce her to subscribe to the
South Carolina innovation.

From the Pennsylvaniain of June 3.
The Delaware Canal.
The Commissioners for the disposition of the
stock of the Delaware Canal, met yesterday morn-
ing at the Merchants' Hotel, and, after a session of
several hours, in which no result was reached, ad-
journed until afternoon, when it was resolved, in
view of all the circumstances of the case, to ad-
journ sine die, that the matter may again come un-
der consideration of the Legislature. This, beyond
all doubt, was the wisest course that could be pur-
sued. The law is essentially defective, and a gen-
eral feeling of disapprobation, now that the matter
is fully understood, is manifested in regard to it.-
By tie adjournment of the Commissioners, an op-
portunity is afforded to the Legislature to revise
their proceedings, to correct errors, and to provide
for the sale in a manner calculated to be satisfacto-
ry to the community. During the morning, there
was quite a concourse of people at the Exchange,
anticipating a renewal of the disgraceful tumult
and scramble of the previous day, and forces were
rallied for the same purpose, under an expectation
that the subscription would be again opened. But
the violence which had already been displayed,
proved subversive of its own ends, and brought
about a closure of the books, for the present at
least It is more than probable that a different
method will be resorted to when this stock is again
submitted to the public.
A town meeting of citizens in reference to the
matter of the Delaware Canal, was held on Friday
afternoon, in front of the State House, at which
Henry Horn presided, William S. Hansell and
Thomas B. Town acting as Vice Presidents. A
preamble and resolutions were presented by Benja-
min H. Brewster, who enforced them in a series of
earnest remarks. These resolutions were in oppo-
sition to the details of the law providing for the dis-
position of the stock of the Delaware Canal, and
were adopted as fully expressive of the feelings of
the meeting. This meeting was the result of a
strong anxiteomont in the public mind, in reference
to the whole matter.
B. H. Brewster, Esq., addressed the meeting in
opposition to the law authorizing the sale, and said
Commissioners having violated the law, bad as
it was, by closing the books, because they could not
control the action of those disposed to buy, the law,
so far as the Commissioners and the sale are con-
cerned, is annulled and of no effect.
He then reverted to the arrival in this city of Gov.
Porter, whom he denounced as "the great Mogul of
Stock jobbers," for the purpose, said Mr. B., of con-
trolling the action of the Commissioners by his
authority, and compelling them to go on with the
sale, and thus lining the pockets of certain worthies.
Here Mr. E. McGowan rose and stated that he
had just seen the Governor, and he could say on
authority that Governor Porter was opposed to the
"Yes," said Mr. Brewster, "so he said in regard
to the infamous bill putting in circulation the Relief
notes; but he said further, if they, the representa-
tives, were worth a d--n, they would pass it by
two-thirds." This was received with great cheer-
ing by the meeting.
More of the Monroe Meeting.
We have already published the declinations of
three of the gentlemen, whose names were used in
the proceedings of the spurious Monroe county
meeting, without their authority, and contrary to
their wishes. The Monroe Democrat of the 1st
instant also contains the declination of JASPER
VLITs, Esq., a sterling democrat of that county, as
To the Democratic Citizens of Monroe County.
In perusing the Easton Sentinel, (a mormon pa-
per) of the 18th May, I observed several resolu-
tions, purporting to be the proceedings of a demo-
cratic meeting held on Thursday evening, the 1 lth
May, (court week,) and to my astonishment I saw
my name was published as being a member of the
committee to prepare the resolutions. Now I deem
it proper to state, that I never acted as a member
of the committee of that disorganizing, Kickapoo
and bribery meeting. It was held contrary to the
usages and customs of the party, and as I profess
to entertain democratic principles, could not coun-
tenance it as a democratic meeting. The editor of
the Easton Sentinel, who has said that I acted as a
member of the committee to draft the resolutions of
that meeting, stated what is totally and utterly
The democratic meeting held on Tuesday even-
ing the 9th of May, was the regular democratic
meeting. It was held in pursuance of a call of the
Standing Committee and in accordance with the
customs and usages of the party. The business
usually transacted at the primary meetings was
done at that meeting.
I am in favor of sound democratic principles, and
opposed to all corruption, bribery, "tight places,"
bargain and sale; and shall always remain so "re-
gardless of the denunciations that may be poured
forth from any quarter."

MEssas. EnrTOas:-Numerous very worthy
and capable gentlemen have already been named
in connection with the office of Canal Commission-
er, to be filled by the people at the fall election.-
Permit a disinterested citizen to add another name
to the list, that will not suffer in comparison with
any of the respectable gentlemen already before the
public. I refer to GARDNER FURNESS of
Lancaster county. Mr. F. is a tried and veteran
democrat, who has never yet compromised his prin-
ciples for the gratification of any one-plain in his
habits, but of sterling honesty and great intelligence.
He has heretofore occupied distinguished positions
in the ranks of the democracy, in all of which lie
has acquitted himself faithfully and well. As Mr.
Furness fully squares with the criterion of the illus-
trious Jefferson-" Is he honest-is he capable Y"'-
I know of no other prominent public man in the
Commonwealth, who would be better qualified for
the office-and, I trust the Democratic State Con-
vention will give his claims favorable consideration.
A DEMOCRAT OF '98.
For the Democratic Union.
MEssas. EDIToRs :-Having already noticed the
names of several gentlemen of distinguished merit
in the east and west of the State, recommended as
candidates for Canal Commissioners, permit us to
recommend Gen. R. H. HAMMOND of Northum-
berland county, as a person well qualified for that
distinguished station. We consider Northern
Pennsylvania entitled to one of the Commissioners,
and it is our firm conviction that no gentleman
stands higher in the estimation of the people in
Northern Pennsylvansia, for said station, than Gen.
board the Forrest, and of several other passengers, we
think that certainly two and probably five or six
were thrown overboard and lost. The names of
these, of course, it will be difficult to ascertain, as
there were so many passengers on board of the boat.
One of them was said to be a hand of the Pulaski.
Another person was seen floating past, calling pite-
ously for assistance, and he sunk before it could be
rendered him. Another went under the wheel, and
three or four others were seen in the water, appa-
rently making very little exertions to save them-
selves; but we are inclined to think that some of
these latter were good swimmers and reached the
shore. One young man we saw who swam ashore,
having jumped from the cabin window.
The names of the sufferers who are scalded, are
Win. Coon, of Erie county, N. Y., very badly
scalded on the body.
Michael Hawkins, the steward of the Pulaski,
also very badly scalded.
The two above mentioned are the worst injured,
but they will probably recover.
Sheridan McCullough, of Redbank, Jefferson
county, Pa., near Brookville, hands, arms and face
very badly scalded.
James Jilson of Dill Creek township, Crawford
county, Pa., badly scalded.
Joseph Hughes, of Jefferson county, Pa., hands
and face badly scalded.
-Wing, slighted scalded in the legs, but was
able to be about.
All the above with the exception of Wing were
brought down by the Forrest, and are receiving
every attention from the hands of Mr. Valentine
Fehl, the landlord of the Travellers Home, at the
foot of Irwin street.
The thanks of the humane are due to Dr. Speer
of Pittsburg, and Dr. Dale of Allegheny, for their
prompt and efficient attention to the sufferers at the
late hour of the night, at which the Forrest arrived,
as well as to Mr. Fehl, Mr. J. A. Stocton and many
other gentlemen whose names we did not learn.
We asked several of the passengers, but could
not learn that blame was to be attributed to any one
for the occurrence of the accident.
The freight which was on the Pulaski, such of
it as was not distructible by water, will be saved.
There will probably be no attempt made to raise
the boat, as she is BO badly inju thtat it will not
pay *9 wot"

a lofty mountain cloud, lit up the bay, and revealed
to the eye some -hifi ty sloops and schooners just
coming into port; tluhi together with the forest of
masts at the wharf, the puffing of steamboats com-
ing in, the dimly described steeples in the distance,
the lights moving from place to place, and the hum
and bustle on every hand, conspired to impress
the stranger with ideas and expectations in regard
to the business of the place which daylight was
sure to dissipate. Havre de Grace is not, what
many from its peculiar situation, have been led to re-
gard it; there is a great difference between an
outlet and a market. It is a plaIe of l.,i little
'-im'--, .'..tit-iiriing less than ,%.i lli'..-mrid inhabi-
tants. It is well and regularly laid out on a large
scale, and was expected by its founders to become
an important town. Thus far its growth has been
gradual but steadily progressive. It has known no
retiring ebb, and its situation, improvements, and
other prominent causes, bid fair greatly to enhance
its importance. The natural and most direct out-
let for the trade of the interior of Pennsylvania, is
now the arena of a warm strife between Baltimore
and Philadelphia for that trade; the former city
having a decided advantage in regard to locality.
Most of the produce brought to this place is carried
in what is termed Tide Water Boats, which are so
built that they can be safely towed by steamboats in
the open waters of the bay, either to Phil'a. or Balti-
more. Between this and Phil'a. the towing is done
by an organized company, who having an interest
in the Chesapeake and Delaware canal will admit of
no competition, consequently the price is kept up.
Towing and toll to Philadelphia amounts to about
$40. Between this and Baltimore there are four
steamboats now engaged exclusively in the busi-
ness of towing, and so great is the competition that
boats are taken to Baltimore, a distance of more
than 50 miles, for $5. This gives a preference to
the Baltimore market.
The rise in flour and bread-stuis, within the last
week, has brought from the interior many loads of
wheat and flour, which have been sold at fair prices,
but so great is the demand that the market is still
bare. Flour within the last week has advanced
from $4 75 to $5 25, and wheat and corn in pro-

LANCASTEra, 22d May, 1843.
GExrTLr.rE -I feel greatly indebted to you for
your kind invitation to visit Bradford county, and
for the warm commendation of my public conduct
which you express. Whilst sensible that I do not
merit this approbation in so high a degree as your
partiality has bestowed it, I am yet conscious that
in my Congressional career, I have never deviated
from the course so clearly pointed out both by.
Democratic principles and the wishes of the Demo-
cratic party of Pennsylvania. To believe that I
possess their confidence is to me a source of the
highest and purest gratification.
I know not whether it will be in my power to
take Bradford county in my way, in returning
from Meadville, for which I am about to set out on
a visit to my only sister. Your county possesses
an interest for me which has, I presume, been long
since forgotten by its inhabitants. Whilst a very
young man, as a member of the Legislature of
Pennsylvania, I took a decided and active part, un-
der the lead of the late General M'Kean, in favor of
the hardy pioneers who were its first settlers. The
strong impressions which were then made upon my
mind, in favor of the bold and indefatigable men
who first clear the forest and render it the fit abode
of religion and civilization, have ever since remain-
ed and will be as lasting as my life. If, in Con-
gress, I have been the steady advocate of granting
pre-emptions to actual settlers in the far west, my
zeal in their behalf was first kindled by the wrongs
and the hardships which the first settlers of Brad-
ford and the neighboring counties endured from
unjust and contracted Legislation. Under such
circumstances, it would afford me heartfelt pleasure
to meet these ancient settlers and their descendants,
now comprising a large and important portion of
one of the most prosperous and intelligent conunu-
nities to be found in any community. Should I be
unable to accomplish this wish, I hope you will ac-
cept the will for the deed.
With every sentiment of regard,
I remain yours sincerely,

Terrible Steamboat Accident.
Office of the Pittsburg Morning Chronicle,
SATURDAY, May 6, 2 P. M. S
On Friday night last, about eleven o'clock, as
the steamer Forrest was lying to, to put out a pas-
senger in a skiff, about 20 miles up the Allegheny
river, with her head down stream, the Pulaski,
which was coming up, having on board about 150
passengers, ran into her, the bow of the Forrest
striking the side of the Pulaski opposite her boilers.
The boilers were immediately thrown down by the
concussion-the steanm pipes separating and the hot
steam rushing among the passengers and scaling
them in the most terrible manner. The Pulaski,
whose side was broken in by the bow of the For-
rest, immediately sunk to her boiler deck.

Opinion of Otiro
Attorney General's Opinion."
Our readers had an opportunity last week of
reading at length the "opinion" of Attorney Gen-
eral Johnson relative to the regularity of the elec-
tion of State printers. We conceive that we have
done full justice to the legal 'adviser of the Gover-
nor, in thus giving him a hearing, a week in ad-
vance of any legal comments which we might
deem proper to publish, in answer to his 'opinion.'
We don't know much about law; not a tenth
part as much as we should like to know. But we
have read a few books, written by such men as
Blackstone, Chitty, Kent, and Story-men gener-
ally received as tolerable lawyers. But when pe-
rusing carefully the opinion' of the chief prosecu-
ting officer, before we had seen it commented upon,
it occurred to our simplicity that the said opin-
ion" was a very poor opinion" indeed; and that
if the Attorney General should receive five hundred
dollars extra for that service, as he did in a certain
other case, he would get a great deal more than
three disinterested lawyers, upon their oaths, acting
under the stay law, would appraise it at. We
thought, after reading over the law, which provides
for the election of State printers--then examining
the law for the election of State Treasurer, (with
which the former has an intimate connection, be-
cause it provides that the printers shall "be elected
in the manner now provided by law for the election
of State Treasurer,") and lastly, acquainting our-
selves with the facts attending the election of State
printers-after this we thought, (but our thoughts
are not worth much-they are not given under the
sanction of an executive appointment,) that the
"opinion" of the Attorney General was a poor,
puerile piece of pettifogging, weak and unsound,
without even the equivocal merit of ingenuity.-
We asked ourselves how it would look in a book
of reports; and we wondered what court on earth
since the abolishment of the Criminal Sessions in
Philadelphia, would have consented to the engross-
ing of that document on its records, with the prefix
It has no doubt already occurred to the reader as
singular that the legislature which made the law,
and in pursuance thereof elected the State printers,
did not know how to execute its own enactments,
but must be taught that duty by the Attorney Gen-
eral. He. tells the people's representatives, in plain
words: "See here, gentlemen, you have made a
law, but you don't know what it means; I am
wiser than you, and will instruct you in the inter-
pretation of your own language; I will tell you
what you intended to enact in that law." Most
learned judge! A second Daniel !- Wilkesbarre
Governor Porter is mad, because the late Legis-
lature did not elect his man State Printer, and con-
sequently, his Attorney General has decided that
the election was invalid. A law was passed at the
late session, authorizing the election of a State
Printer by the Legislature. This election was to
have taken place on the third day after the passage
of the law. The two Houses met for the purpose
at the proper time, but adjourned before the election
was decided. Subsequently, however, they elect-
ed Isaac G. M'Kinley, Esq., editor of the Keystone,
and never dreamed of any violation of law or or-
der. But the Keystone had been vigilant in ex-
posing the base machinations of His Excellency,
and therefore incurred his displeasure.
The Governor is a strange man, indeed-a very
troublesome man. He knows full well, that such
a law was required to save our sinking Common-
wealth from the vortex of degradation to which it
is speedily approximating. At the commencement
of every session, several weeks are consumed in se-
lecting a printer, and transacting very little other
business of importance, at the I ,'- expense of
only two thousand seven hundred and nine-three
dollars per week! This will all be saved by the
new law. But what does Porter regard the impe-
rative demands of justice, or the real interests of the
Commonwealth ? If he had the interests of the
people at heart, he would not "catch at straws,"
merely for the sake of gratifying a desire to show
an arbitrary disposition.-Westmorel'd Democratic
The Voice of the Democracy!
It is cheering to the Anti-Porter Democrats to see
how gallantly and nobly the Democracy of the State
and entire Union have come up to the defence of a
position which we in this county occupied as pio-
neers in the crusade against Porterism. As like
causes produce like effects we felt confident that the
truth would gradually find its way among all think-
ing Democrats, and that the present corrupt admin-
istration of David R. Porter would ere long meet
with signal retribution-but in our most sanguine
expectations, we did not anticipate a judgment so
speedy. He is now denounced as no other Execu-
tive of this commnuonwealth was ever denounced, and
not for one, but for a series of corrupt and arbitrary
actions. The forbearance of the people continued
until it ceased to be a virtue, and the cup of public
indignation is now full to overflowing. Execra-
tions loud and deep are heard from every corner of
the commonwealth against this ingrate to the peo-
ple and, "regardless of denunciations from any
quarter," the people will continue to execrate the
man who could soil his official robes by huckstering
about his official influence for filthy lucre.
So barefaced and shameless has been the prosti-
tution of the Executive of Pennsylvania that the
Democracy of other and distant states have joined
in the cry of almost universal condemnation, and
so signal a rebuke to any public man has scarcely
ever been witnessed. Public justice is sometimes
slow, but it is certain. The black clouds of infamy
may hang over an individual when living, but if he
be really innocent, his name and memory will live
after him, will rise from his ashes as bright and
pure as the fair faced moon, and remain a rich leg-
acy to his posterity. But let the honors and emol-
uments of the world fall thick and fast upon the
unworthy, a day will speedily come when official
robes will be no shield to public scrutiny, and the
head that stood erect and commanded the admira-
tion and applause of the multitude, may be bent in
shame, and as a refuge from the hisses of that same
multitude pass in infamy to the grave.--Carlisle
What's in the Wind?
Some time ago Gov. Porter appointed Richard
Elliott (formerly editor of a violent Anti-masonic
newspaper published at Harrisburg, and at present
an office-holder under John Tyler) aid-de-camp and
now he has conferred the same title upon Andrew
J. Ogle of Somerset county, a nephew of the illus-.
trious Charles Ogle, who made himself notorious
during the campaign of '40 by his examinations of
the President's table, stable and Bed-room.
We have the pleasure of a slight acquaintance
with Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Jackson Ogle,
aid-de-eamp to his Excellency, and believe him to
be a clever fellow. He is, however a whig, and we
are considerably astonished to find him enrolled
among the followers of the great Kickapoo Chief.

building was situated near the capitol, and the fire
extended on both sides of Main street, to the Court

Of the three printing offices one was saved-that
of the Star ; the Sentinel and the Fhiridian offices
It is supposed that there were at least two hun-
dred and fifty I....-.I.I.- with most of their contents
destroyed. It was impossible to save many of the
goods in the stores, the fire made such rapid pro-
gress, and those that were saved were mostly in a
damaged state. Several buildings were blown up,
and two or three ncgroes lost their lives.
The loss is estimated at $300,000. There had
been no rain for six weeks, in consequence of
which the buildings had become so dry that they
burned like tinder.

If any thing could hae surprised me coming from

day in January "in every year." 2d. Each house
is to assemble in convention, at the hour of 12
o'clock, on that day. 3d. The Speaker of the Sen-
ate is to preside. 4th. If neither candidate receives
a majority of the whole number of votes present at
the first meeting, the convention is to adjourn from
" time to time" until an election takes place, &c.
Now this is the manner of electing State Treasurer.
Well, what is the language of the act for the elec-
tion of State Printers? Why, that theree shall,
hereafter be elected, in the manner now provided
by law for the election of State Treasurer, two
State Printers," 4ec. 4c. The election was to take
place in three days after the passage of the act, and
every third year thereafter on the first Monday of
March. The Legislature intended the election to
be conducted in the same manner as that of State
Treasurer, and accordingly so expressed itself, in a
way that cannot be fairly misunderstood. Is it
not a part of the "manner' of electing State Trea-
surer, that, if the convention cannot agree on the first
meeting, it may adjourn "from time to time V" If
it is, and no one can doubt it, then tlhe convention
to i.. .c1ite Printers had a right also to adjourn
-. fr.i--n i.., to time," in case no election took place
at the first meeting.
The distinction that the Attorney General at-
tempts to draw between the two acts is ridiculous.
The adjournment'of the convention to elect State
Treasurer "from time to time" is as much a part of
the manner" of th. election as its assembling is,
and so was the adjournment of the convention to
elect State Printers. The matter is too plain to
argue about. Even if nothing had been said in
the act passed for the election of State Treasurer
about the adjournment of the convention fromn
time to time," it would have possessed the power
inherently by virtue of its authority to elect, and
by necessary implication have a right to adjourn
from day to day, in case it could not elect on the
first meeting; otherwise the will of the people could
not have been carried out, as expressed through
their representatives in the passage of the law, and
the spirit of the act itself would have been prostrated,
which is the polar star of construction in all cases.
But I will not pursue the subjr',' furTh.-r. The
will of the people cannot be (.-i,at.-.l i i til- way.
The elections of their representatives are not to be
treated as if they had never taken place. And the
Governor will do well to profit by the lessons of the
past on this subject. If the Governor desires to
bring down upon himself the just judgment of the
people in another, and to him more fearful shape,
at the next session of the Legislature, he will still
persist in obstinately opposing their will, by refus-
ing to accept and approve the bonds of the State
Printers. The people cannot and will not be de-
feated by one man.-Fayette Genius of Liberty.

Culture of Silk.-Dr. Charles Stuart, of Breck-
enridge county, Ky., has manufactured in his fami-
ly, during the present season, 500 skeins of beauti-
ful silk. The opinion is expressed in the Louisville
papers, that in a short time the culture of silk in
the west will be as common as that of flax now is.
A valuable Bustle.-When Treasurer Graves
sloped, in female attire, in order to be fashionable,
he had a bustle made of United States Treasury
notes and State scrip, amounting to $145,000, the
amount which he stole out of the Treasury.

novel, The Pioneers," in its action and characters.

committee on manufactures in the Senate when

men in South Carolina, but they even dispose of
white men at auction. Two were sold at Spar-
tansburg, a few days ago, probably for some offence,
and brought the insignificant sum of six and a

that quarter is low to a most mortifying degree;

Dr. B. EHRMIAN,
WOULD inform his former patrons and the
citizens of Harrisburg, generally, that he
has removed to No. 38, North Second Street, a
few doors above Walnut, where he will be happy to
attend patients afflicted with all kinds of diseases,
acute as well as chronic, many of which-though
they have baffled the skill of the old school-he
has been able to cure. In proof of this, many cases
of cures might be referred to, but the following tes-
timonials may suffice:
HARIsaBUsG, Pa., April 1, 1843.
Dr. Benjamin Ehrman:
DsAnt SiR:-As I am now on the eve of my
departure from this place, I gladly avail myself of
this opportunity of expressing my sense of obliga.
tion to you for your prompt, faithful and unremit-
ting attention to me and my family for many
months past, as a Homieopsthic Physician.
SWhile I shall ever retain a grateful and affection-
ate regard for you personally, I shall respect you as
an intelligent, competent and successful physician,
and the system on which you practice as decidedly
not only the easiest to the patient, but also thb most
safe and efficacious.
Even in my chronic diseases I have been greatly
relieved by your remedies. In acute cases that
have occurred in my own person and family, the
cures have been affected immediately, insomuch
that the medicine seemed to operate like a charm.
This fact is particularly noticed, because many
who are unacquainted with the Homceopathic sys-
tem, conclude that the medicine is not sufficiently
prompt and powerful in acute diseases. My own
experience is, that in such cases the remedy corres-
ponds with the disease.
While I fcheerfully recommend you and your
system to the patronage and confidence of the pub.
lic, I remain yours with sentiments of cordial re-
Pastor of the M. E. Church, Harrisburg.
The undersigned takes pleasure in making the
following statement: That Dr. B. Ehrman, (a
practitioner of medicine upon the Homceopathic
principles,) while attending my family in 1842 and
1843, was eminently successful in his practice.-
I believe him to be a man of integrity, and well ac-
quainted with the science of his profession, and
worthy of the confidence of the public. One of
the cases which he had in my family was extreme-
ly difficult, but the effects of his medicine was all
that could be desired-the patient was restored to
In my opinion, Dr. Ehrman is a good Physician
and a safe practitioner.
Late Secretary of the Commonwealth.
The subscriber was induced, through the solici-
tation of friends, to apply to Dr. B. Ehrman, a
practitioner in medicine upon the Homoeopathic
system of Harrisburg, for medical aid for himself
and family-and although then an unbeliever in
the whole system, it is with great pleasure that he
now bears testimony to the eminent success Dr.
E. has had in the cases for which he prescribed.-
Such is the confidence which the subscriber en-
tertains in Dr. E. as a practitioner, and the system
upon which he practices, that he would without
hesitation commit the most critical case into his
hands. The subscriber was for many years afflict.
ed with severe pains in his liver, head and limbs,
(a kind of liver affection combined with chronic
rheumatism, &c.,) occasioned originally, as he be-
lieves, by the effects of large quantities of Mercury,
administered to him in a critical stage of malignant
fever in 1825, and again excited or irritated by
every slight cold. From this he believes Dr. E.
has succeeded in giving him permanent relief.
SAMUEL F. HEADLEY.
SENATE CHAMBER, April 7, 1843.
DEAn Sin:-I take this opportunity of turning
the attention of the public to my case : I have been
severely afflicted for many years with a complica.
tion of diseases, and the endeavors and attentions
of several skilful Physicians of the old school have
been unsuccessful in affording me relief. I finally
applied to Dr. B. Ehrman, who, by the administra-
tion of medicines upon the Homceopathic system.
restored me again to health.
I respectfully recommend this system to the con-
sideration of the public, as beneficial and worthy
the confidence of those who labor under the various
diseases to which we are all subjected.
Very truly yours,
DAupRnix Tow.', March, 1843.
ASTHMA CURED.-Having been severely
afflicted for 17 years with a periodical Asthma,
and, after trying many Physicians in vain, I finally
applied to Dr. B. Ehrman, who succeeded in affect-
ing a thorough cure in less than four months, and
although more than 3 years have since elapsed,
there has as yet been no return of the complaint. I
therefore feel it my duty to recommend to others a
system that has been so beneficial to me,

States Saturday Post, the oldest and best establish-
ed Family Newspaper in the Union, having recent-

greatly to improve and beautify the sheet, and to
show a degree of enterprise in its management that
must more than maintain the high character it has
enjoyed for the past twenty years as the FAMILY
JOURNAL of the UNION.
The "UNITED STATES SATURDAY
POST" is considered, in all respects, superior to
any of its class, while in price it is far cheaper. It
is ONLY TWO DOLLARS PER YEAR, per
As a means of compensation to Postmasters for
their trouble as agents, or as an inducement for
neighbors to combine, and thus save to the Pub-
lishers the cost of packing, directions, &c., the fol-
lowing additional advantages are held out:
1 copy $2 00 per annum.
3 copies '- 5 00
8 copies 10 00

attention, unless it is in strict accordance with the

of sending individual names, will send for the num-
ber of copies in their own name.

Certificate from Major Charles Nauman, Brigade
Inspector of Lancaster Co., Pa.
Messrs. Heinitsh & Keffer:-Having for a long
time been afflicted with Tetter on my face, which
I believe I caught in a Barber's shop, I tried a great
many different salves, washes, &c., which gave no
relief, but on the contrary, rather made it worse-
Hearing from Mr. Jacob Foltz, of this city, of your
Tetter Wash, I authorized him to procure a bottle
for me, and had used it but a short time when the
Tetter disappeared, and with the exception of a
slight discoloration of the part affected, I am now
as well as ever. Knowing a great many persons
who are similarly afflicted, and who believe theirs
to have been caught in the same manner. I make
this statement in order that they may be informed
where relief can be obtained.
Lancaster, Nov. 2, 1835.

pounding medicines, has been such as admitted

tion above all others.
