TRUE ECONOMY FAIRLY TESTED.
T HE Subscriber having sold out part of his Patent
A Right for his superior HOUSE HEATER and
COOKING STOVE, we are now enabled to carry
on the business more extensively, and shall use our
utmost exertions to meet the demand for them this
season. For this purpose we have the store No. 414
Girard Row, Market street, second door below 12th st.
where we would respectful solicit the public to an
iispeption of them as we are satisfied from the practi-
cal experiments which have been made on them
(where close observation has been taken) that they
are the most economical so well as safe method of
cooking and heating houses ever yet introduced to the
public, as the same fire which is necessary for the
cooking purposes of any family will be found suffici.
ent to heat a house large enough for the accommoda-
tion of such family, besides the advantage of having
but one fire in the house, there is no dust, no smell of
victuals pr gas carried through the house, but the
pure air fro4i the street or yard is brought in and dif-
fused through the building after being gently heated
(but not burned) so thatit is pure and pleasant as the
air of summer. We are also prepared to satisfy the
mind of any one that they are at least as good, if not
better, for cooking than any other plan heretofore in-
trodqped, with the double advantage of heating the
whole house with the same fire, and thereby saving at
least one third of the fuel used on other plans; certifi-
cates of many persons who had these stove in use du-
ring the severity of last winter, have been obtained
for the purpose of satisfying those who might still
have some doubt on their minds as to their utility and
economy, which certificates may be seen at the store,
and they Wi!l be found sufficient to satisfy any one of
their uqperiopity; the|F is 4sp irnsprted into some of
these stoyes,a perpetual boiler which will throw a suf,
filient supply of hot water into any Qf the roqiqs for
bathing and culinary purposes, There has also beepl
some important improvements lately made in the struc-
ture of these stoves which renders still more useful.As
there has been considerable encouragement and many
applications for them, the public are respectfully in
vited (and particularly those bout to build dwelling
houses) to call and see them, as from three to twelve
hundred dollars or more may be saved in the nett ex-
pense of building by constructing the house to suit the
heater, as there need be but one chimney and one air
flue or ventilator in the house, and thus" save the e -
pense of the stock of chimnies, marble mantel fire
place, grates, <4c.
N. B.--et the public (and particularly the ladies)
call and see for themselves, and we are satisfied that
when they see the stoves and certificates that we
have of their utility, economy, and convenience, ahat
they will at once adopt this new improvement, and

the State, being on the Ridge Turnpike, at the 8 mile
stone, within one and a half miles of Manayunk, and
convenient to mills and places of worship. There is
also on the property a good tenant house and garden.
Title indisputable. A large portion of the purchase
money may remain on the property, if wished.
-ALSO-
A lot of 12 aores of new land, lately enclosed and
improved, situated half a mile from the above place,
and within a small distance of Mr Adams' new house,
now building in English Cottage form. This lot is
handsomely situated for building, over-looking the
whole of the village oh Roxborough, Mount Airy, and
part of Germantown, fronting on a good and level
road, leading from the Ridge Turnpike to Livezey's
Mill on the Wissahiccon.

ADVERTISING.
It is curious to hear the complaints made when a
bill is presented for advertising, which has, by the
neglect of the advertiser himself, run up to an amount
which appears rather large, whereas there are no ac-
counts whatever which can be so easily computed
by both parties. Every paper has its rates publish-
ed in every number; the list is always before the
reader. The price is precisely so much for a certain
number of lines, (say 8, 10, 12, or 15, according to
the size of the type and width of the column, being
so arranged as to make the same number of letters)
-it is further published that all advertisements not
marked to the contrary will be inserleduntilforbid,
and charged accordingly. The account can be far
more definitely arranged than any merchant's ac-
count, and yet it is not at all unuconmon to hoar or
the rascally accounts made out by the printers !"
We have now numerous accounts, some of them
not falling far short of $400, for single advertise-
ments of merely one or two squares, which, when-
ever we present them, we are told by the adver-
tisers, are "most enormous," and that the adver-
tisement has not been worth to them a half or a
quarter of the amount," &c. &c. But whose fault
is it? Certainly not the printer's! He has adver-
tised his rates and his rules-rules which are actu-
ally necessary to the carrying on of his business;
and every man who advertises with those rules and
rates before him, voluntarily enters into a contract
to which he is legally bound and has no right, legal
or moral, to object. Look at the disadvantages of
a contrary system to the printer. He never can tell
how he stands with the world; whether he can ven-
ture to improve or enlarge his paper; in fact, he
never can even balance his books! Now, what
would a merchant say if he found himself in this
predicament? Suppose he should sell a piece of
cloth for ten dollars per yard, and when he presents
his bill be told that the cloth had not been worth
three dollars, because the buyer was careless enough
to ruin his suit of clothes the first time he put it on,
or had never worn it-that it was of no use to him
-and payment resisted on such grounds! Would
not every man ridicule such an idea? Certainly.
And yet we should like some one to Ipoint us out
the difference in the two cases; for we confess we
are not metaphysicians enough to discover it.-

'i.. ,i :, i A i :', tk it upon themnehemg to dive
inti. the cscrcts of futurity, and to foretell with ttu-
inerical precision the nature of coming events, To
onutwrd appearances, they never entertain the
slig'liltt doubt of their own infallibility. No mis-
givings shake then, and, unlike the Pythia, they
give out their vaticinations from the mystic tripod,
with the smile of confidence and the smirk of self-
complacency. Now, as there is no desire in the
human mind stronger than the wish to penetrate
the veil which hides the future from the eye, all
this would be wondrous comfortable, if it were not
that there are two sets of prophets and two sets of
prophesies in this matter-a. species of centrifugal
and centripetal force-acting in such direct contra-
diction as to neutralize each other, and leave the
public mind in its original state of uncertainty.-
Luckily, however, the moment which applies the
test of truth-which decides who are the soothsay-
ers and who are not-is at hand, and by its arbitra-
ment we at least are prepared to stand or fall. We
have from the first asserted that the anticipations
indulged in by the democratic press would be real-
ised almost to the letter by the result, and have de-
clared that the whiggish journals of the country
habitually and wilfully misled their leaders. Wheth-
er or not we were mistaken is now to be seen,and if
our assumptions prove to be correct, t* public, if
hereafter their suffer their credulity to be abused,
have none but themselves to reproach. As for the
falsifying journalists,who stand upon the eve of con-
viction, we can imagine no worse punishment for
them than to be compelled to read their own files for
thie last two yeaws.

The Election.-Our democratic friends on Fri-
day should let nothing but actual sickness keep
them away from the polls. The enemy are drum-
ming up their full strength. Ever since the Octo-
ber election, they have been secretly at work all
over the state, in a diligent effort to poison the
minds of the people, and it is important that they
should learn the might of democracy, and the use-
lessness of all the dt'vices that cunning can fabri-
cate. Therefore, let no indolence, no compromise,
no certainty of victory, keep a single friend of Van
Buren, Johnson and Reform away from the polls.
The work which we have in hand is one of an im-
portance unparalleled in the history of Pennsylva-
nia, and it should be well done. A democratic
President is to be elected, to continue the policy so
ably begun by Andrew Jackson, and a democratic
Convention is to be chosen to root out the aristo-
cratic abuses of our present constitution, under the
evils of which the people have so long suffered.
Such is the task committed to the hands of the yeo-
rnanry of Pennsylvania. Their exertions ought to
be, and doubtless will be, commensurate with its
magnitude. Let every man To the Polls !" and
do his share of the great task which now devolves
upon the people. The contest of 1836 is destined
to be a loft* landmark in our country's history,and
he who does his duty in it will hereafter look back
upon his acts with pride and pleasure.

TO NATURALIZED CITIZENS.
On Friday you will have an opportunity to vote
for or against your rights. The whigs proclaim it
extensively that no emnigrant should be naturalized
or allowed to vote under 21 years' residence, which
would disfranchise many for their whole lives. If
you like this doctrine, vote the Federal Convention
tickets: If you do not like it, vote the democratic
tickets.
"No man should vote who does not bring his
Deed for Real Estate to the poll." This is the
doctrine of the aristocracy. Let the people show
their disrelish of it on Friday.

FLORIDA--DEATH OF COLONEL LANE.
In addition to the news from Florida given yes-
terday, we learn that Lieutenant Colonel Lane
committed suicide at Fort Drane, on the 20th ult.,
by placing the hilt of his sword on the ground, and
falling on it in such a way that the point passed
through the corner of the eye into the brain, No
, conjecture is otflrcd as to the cause. He was in

PHILADA. Co., Nov. 2, 1836.
Gentlemen,-The answer to your enquiries we
will state:-
1. That we are in favor of taking from the Go-
vernor the greater portion of his patronage, and of
establishing some check on that which may be suf-
fered to remain with him.
2. We are opposed to-life offices, and in favor
of a limited tenure for all offices whatsoever.
3. We are in favor of a greater extension and
equality in the right of suffrage,and of placing those
between the ages of 21 and 22 on as good a footing
as other citizens.
4. We desire to continue the security of life, li-
berty and property, at least as ample as it exists
under the present constitution, and to render it
more perfect if practicable.
For your further satisfaction, we refer you to
our pledge given the delegation, a copy of which
has been furnished you. The other candidates on
our ticket are not present. If they were, we pre-
sume they would join us in this letter.
Very respectfully,
Your fellow citizens,

AB'M. HELFENSTEIN,

C. J. INGERSOLL,
CHARLES BROWN,
JOS. M. DORAN.
BENJ. MARTIN,
To S. H. James, Jos. M. Hendricks, and others.

The following is the pledge above referred to.
PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 6th, 1836.
Gentleman-The undersigned, having been ap-
prized of their nomination as candidates for Dele-
gates to represent the County of Philadelphia in
the Convention to alter and amend the Constitution
of this State, respectfully submit the following as
their general views upon this important subject.
It is impossible to foreseen all their details what
may prove to be the will of the people, or what may
be accomplished for the public good; but
I. The patronage of the Executive should be
thoroughly reduced, so as to take from an individual
the power of convulsing the Commonwealth, as has
been the case hitherto, by contest for office-and
the term of office of the Executive and Senators,
may be reduced with advantage.
2. The Judiciary requires entire renewal in its
tenure, mode of appointment, and power to make
laws, so that laws may be made by the Legislature
only: and only construed and enforced through the
Judiciary.
3. But above all, the Legislative trust should be
ascertained and restrained, so as to prevent viola-
tions of it, like that in the late formidable instance
of the United States Bank, and to prevent any Le-
gislature from making laws or granting charters
beyond the power of repeal or amendment.
4. The Right of Suffrage should be extended,
equalized, and better guarded.
5. The Militia, the public domain, in rivers and
highways, and Universal Education, should be es-
tablished by such Constitutional provisions as shall
best promote the general welfare.
6. Officers for Life should be prohibited, and a
greater proportion of public officers be elected by the
people.
7. A provision should be inserted, providing for
the amendment of the Constitution, when desired
by majority of the people; and a mode should be
prescribed for carrying their will into effect.
Respectfully, your fellow citizens,
C. J. INGERSOLL,
GEO. W. RITER,
JOHN FOULKROD,
ABM. HELFENSTEIN,
THOMAS WEAVER,
PIERCE BULTER,

umphs to inspire us with false confidence, or make
us forget that the price of freedom is incessant
watchfulness and untiripg effort: Democracy ex-
pects every man to do his duty. Permit us, fel-
low citizens, as we stand on the Verge of the field,
to point to the foe and ask you to "remember whom
ye have to cope withal." Recal the times long
past, or refer to recent events, and say whether you
would be willing to be at last overcome and subdu-
ed by such opponents.
When our country threw off the bonds of foreign
domination, and your fathers, amidst every priva-
tion and danger,were battling for its independence,
where was the aristocracy? Where but basking
in wealth and luxury in our cities, under the then
beloved title of Toryisna! seeking protection in
Nova Scotia, or the British camp; or piloting the
ruthless enemy to the sack of your villages-to
conflagration and robbery-to massacre and viola-
tion.
And when our independence was at length a-
chieved, and our liberties were to be secured by
constitutions and by laws, where then might this
spirit of aristocracy be seen: where but in the coun-
cils of the nation, in the disguise of Federalism,
endeavoring by the influence of wealth and sophis-
try, to cheat the people out of the liberty for which
they had been contending; and, failing to erect it-
self into a nobility, and reduce- the people to the
condition of slaves, introducing insidious clauses
into our institutions, under the sanction of which
might be created, by Federal or Aristocratic con-
struction, Banks and monstrous monopolies, to
make the rich richer, and the poor poorer.
Shall we ask whether the spirit of aristocracy
was unseen or unfelt in'98-the blessed Reign of
Terror-the era of black cockades and bludgeons-
of Alien and Sedition Laws-when your presses
were muzzled, and your Editors attacked by armed
men, and the glory of aristocracy shown brightly
from the polished bayonets of the Blues! It is true
the evil then became insupportable; the democracy
of the country rallied in its strength and annihila-
ted the power of the oppressor; and never let us
forget that at this crisis it was honest, incorruptible
and fearless Pennsylvania that gloriously led the
way to national enfranchisement by her triumph at
her general election in October, followed by the
Union in the November succeeding, when Jeffer-
son was first elevated to the Presidency.
Did we not witness the same hostile spirit ol
Aristocracy combatting against the people and the
country, when Jefferson and Madison were assailed
and reviled for sustaining the honor and interests
of their country; when blue lights gleamed anm
Hartford Conventions assembled, and toryism only
lacked courage to become treason.-or has it beer
less obvious for the past twelve years, during whici
period assuming its boldest front, under the sanc
tion of the Money Monster, it has made its mos
formidable effort to establish its power on the crum
bled ruins of our liberties ?
Fellow Citizens-The patriot JACKSON, sup
ported by the people, has been able, during his' glo

How long you shall remain so, depends on your

TIN VAN BuniEN the indignity to institute a com-
parison : to your knowledge of the candidates, we
fearlessly leave your choice, confident that the
splendid talents, the pure patriotism, the irreproach-
able character, the eminent services of Mr. Van
Buren, can no more be unknown or overlooked by
you, than the weakness and want of moral as of

have shown that ye best know how to convey the
proper rebuke to flagitious politicians. One great
effort-one signal victory more-completes your
emancipation and security. In placing VAN

RESOLUTIONS
Unanimously adopted by the Democratic Ward
Delegation, and ordered to be published by
the Committee of Superintendance.
Whereas, the period is approaching, when it
will devolve upon the people of this common.
wealth, to elect delegates to a convention to
amend their present defective and aristocratic
constitution; and whereas this delegation is about
to nominate candidates, to be supported by the
democracy of the city of Philadelphia, and it is
essential that every citizen who will be called on
to exercise the elective franchise, should know
with distinctne^s and clearness, not only the
views of the candidates offered for their support,
but also the principles of those by whom they
were selected; therefore
Resolved, That in the opinion of this delegation,
the present constitution of the commonwealth is
not only exceedingly dcfctiye in its character,
bht is aristocratic in its tendency, and calculated
to nurture principles and feelings adverse to the
free and liberal institutions by which we are suTr
rounded,
Resolved, That this delegation is opposed to the
existence of all offices for life, to the enormous
and kingly patronage exercised by the Governor,
and to the restrictions which at present exist upon
the right of suffrage.
Resolved, That this delegation expects every

THE ROTAL TAR.-The eastern papers received
yesterday furnish some additional particulars re-
specting the melancholy disaster to this boat,which
ire worthy of being recorded.
-The Salem Register states that one or two of the
steamer's boats had been left at St. Johns, to make
room upon the deck for the caravan. The passen-
gers were thus deprived of a part of the usual means
of escape in case of disaster. An effort was made
to put overboard a large Omnibus, upon which to
escape; but its great weight, (being nearly two tons)
prevented its being done. Our informant then,with
several other passengers, took to the only remain-
ing boat. The remaining passengers,among whom
were'a number of women and children, were driven
overboard by the flames. The scene at that time, it
need hardly be said, was truly terrific. Women
threw their little ones overboard and leaped after
them. Other passengers, both male and female,
secured ropes to the vessel, and lowered themselves
over the side. This precaution was rendered una
vailing to many of them by the ropes being burn
off. One man having secured a quantity of silver
dollars to his person, lowered himself to the waters
edge, with the intention of seizing a spar, but no
sooner let go his hold, than owing to the weight o
his silver, he sank to rise no more. Six horses be
longing to the caravan were backed overboard; three
of them instinctively swam towards the nearest land
the other three swam around the boat until the)
sank exhausted. A large elephant belonging to the
menagerie having retreated to a part of the boa
which the fire had not reached, mounted his fore
feet upon the rail, in which position he remained
till about 4 o'clock, apparently calculating, with thi
characteristic sagacity of the animal, the prospect:
of escape, when it decame too hot for him, and h(
leaped overboard,carrying with him as he slid dowi
the vessel's side several of the passengers who wer:
still clinging there. His immense weight probably
carried him to the bottom ere he rose, and he reap
peared after some time at considerable distance
This animal also instinctively swam towards th
nearest land, but as the boat was by this time drift
ed four or five miles out to sea, he must have per
ished. The rest of the menagerie, consisting of li
ons, tigers, &c. were allowed to become a prey ti
the flames, as, on account of their ferocity, it wa
deemed dangerous to loose them.
The Royal Tar was a fine boat of 400 tons. Th
whole number of passengers on board was 85, of
whom 28 were lost-20 males and 8 females.-
Four persons] attached to the boat were also losi
making thirty-two in all. Four of the persons at
tached to the Caravan were among those lost.
* From $50,000 to $100,000 in money was lost
One gentleman had $10,000 in money and draft
-all lost.
The passengers saved give great credit to Capi
Reed, for his indefatigable exertiont to rescue th
suffering and drowning passengers.
A passenger informed the editor of the Portlani
Advertiser, that the scene presented beggared de
scription. The cries and entreaties of men, womel
and children, were truly distressing. When th
intensity of the heat and smoke would not permi
them to remain any longer in the steamer, they
would jump overboard, and hold on to the ropes un
til they were taken off by Capt. Reed, who was ir
the boat, or until the ropes burnt off, when those.
who could not swim, sunk to rise no more. Ap
prehensive that byapproaching too near the steamer
from the anxiety of the passengers to save them
selves, too many might rush on board the boat a
once, and hence all would perish, Captain Reec
held out the oar, and one of the sufferers at a timi
laying hold of it, would thus be drawn on board
But one person was burnt, 31 were drowned. Th
person burnt was an aged Irish woman, who wa
not seen at all on deck, Capt. Waite, of Portland
held on to a rope until it burnt off, He the swan
to the rudder, got his arm into the chain, and fo
an hour and a half thus sustain himself and a ladI
and a gentleman-holding the former by the hand
while the latter held on to his leg.
In giving an account of this melancholy catas
trophy, the editors of the Boston Centinel and Ga
zette, make the following observations:-
All the circumstances will doubtless undergo
severe investigation, and the public will await th
result with anxious solicitude. Captain Reed ap
pears to have discharged his duty pwoiy, after thb
fire was discovered, in staving lives; that the boile
should have been without water, on such a voyage
is most stqi bthing; let the public authorities loo!
to it; if th9 statements in regurd to the engineer I
true, he deserves univerol exec rtior; he ought t,
have guarded against the absence of water from th
lhoUer it is no justification fox him to say that th.
canduutors werp fpul or clogged ; it was his duty t
have inspected them feros time to time while in porl
and to have guarded against their being stopped
after such neglect, he should have given immediat
warning to the Captain, crew and passengers, in
stead of skulking off in the largest boat; had tha


boat remained along-side, in every probability ever'
life would have been preserved.

JUSTIFIABLE HOMICIDE.-The New Orleani
Bee states that on the lithG Oct. Mr. W. S. Wa
terman, of that Oety, while hunting back of the
burying ground, was attacked by a runaway slave
who threw him down and bit his arms and hand
Mr. Waterman succeeded in getting himsef re

him. He fell dead, Verdict of the jury, the de

FIRE.-Yesterday morning, about 4 o'clock, th.
large double building, No. 4, Wall street, was dis
covered to be on fire. The house was three strike
high and tenanted as follows:-The hasement as o
refectory by Mr. Ten Eyck; the f rst story by Johi
Roache, mathematical instrument maker, and
Sandersn &, Oo. hattters,-the second and thirn
by Gracie and Sergeant, merchants; Barber am
Green, hatters; Edward H. Ludlow's land office; J
B. Purroy, attorney, and R. Mortimer. The side
of the building nearest New street is entirely des,
troyed, and the portion that partially escaped the
flames much injured by the water.
Next to this, in, NeW satret, was a house in the
the old Dutch style of architecture, said to be th(
most ancient building of the kind in the city. This
was occupied by a German named Halrie, as a
grocery and dwelling. The building was so fat
destroyed as to be unfit for repairing. The housp.
hold furniture was all burned; a portion of the
grocery stock was saved, but \n a damaged state.
Mr, H.'h loss is -computed at from $1000 to
$150"t.
The fire originated in the refet4ory in the base-:
mant of No. 4 Wall stireel, known as Moses Blue's
refeotory or oyster house.
Three persons were hurt hy the falling of the
gable of the large building, The detatched por-
tian struck and broke off the ladder, upon which
they were standing, and they were precipitated a
distance of about 16 feet to the ground. We have
not been able to ascertain their names, hut under-
stand that one of them was attached to No. 15,

THIRD CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT.
s Great .Meeting of the Democracy and Friends
t of Reform of the State Constitution, Thurs-
day evening, Oct. 27, 1836.
r At an early hour, the people began to assemble,
0 and at the time appointed for the meeting, (half
o past 7 o'clock) the extensive Hay Market Yard
was occupied by a dense and enthusiastic mass of
e the democracy of the district.
JAMES MOLONEY, Esq. was called upon
to preside, and Dr. Joseph L Thomas, Peter Kline,
sen. Thomas Halloway, Benjamin E Carpenter, E
D Martin, Wm Hall, Joseph Justice, Joshua
t Johnson, John Laws, Gen. John D Goodwin,
e Daniel Smith, Alexander Major, John Naglee,

Y Pelouze, J R Kline, Wm A Lee, Abraham P
" Ayres, Samuel J Pearson, Dr. N Marselis, Wm R
' Cash, Edward A Penniman, Z B Ziegler, secreta-
e ries.
- On motion, Resolved, That a committee be ap-
pointed to draft resolutions expressive of the sense
of this meeting.
0 Wherenpon the following gentlemen were ap.
S pointed, who retired for that purpose, viz. Franklin
Lee, Richard L Lloyd, Daniel Reiflf Simon Sny-
e der, Godfrey Townsend, Wm F Ireland, Christian
f Read, Augustus P Fougeray, Henry Garlanger,
- Ferdinand Cownover, Daniel Newman and John
t, Apple.
During the absence of the committee, the meet-
ing was eloquently and forcibly addressed by
* Charles J Ingersoll, Alexander M Peltz, Benjamin
s Martin, Edward A Penniman, Thomas Earle,
Charles Brown, and John J McCahen, Esq's.
It would be impossible to do justice to the ex-
e pressed sentiments of the different speakers; suffice
it to say, they were received with heartfelt bursts
of applause, and the reiterated cheering of the
people, determined to rally as one man in defence
of their sacred and unalienable rights.
e The committee appointed to report resolutions
it having returned, reported the following, which
Y were read and unanimously adopted:
I- Whereas, A crisis is at hand highly important
n to the democracy cf Pennsylvania, as well as to the
e 'United States, when it is to be determined whether
) the institutions acquired by the blood of our fore.
r, fathers are to be preserved in their original and
" sacred character or to be changed for new angled
't doctrines that aim directly to destroy the suprema-
J cy of the people; and whereas, it has ever been the
e usage of the democratic party freely to consult to-
. gether, to act together, to rally; together in the
common cause of their Country: And whereas, the
* republicans of this district are not to be turned
I, from their straight forward course by the slanders
a of their opponents or by assertions, grossly untrue
r and unjust, in regard to their motives, intentions
Y and objects:-Therefore,
Resolved, That the democratic citizens of the
Third Congressional District of Pennsylvania will
Suite and act as one man in the approaching and
Vital struggle for the choice of a chief magistrate,
and the appointment of delegates to a state con-
" vention,
Resolved, That the principles and actions of
Such patriots aa CThsmas Jefferson and Andrew
e Jackson'are those which ,he democracy ot Penn-
r sylvania approve and will support with all their
"' mind and with all their strength; that the cuckoo
k cry of usurpation and tyranny raised against these
e illustrious champions of liberty by the same in-
Sveterate foes of the people and the people's rights
B at the two great democratic contests of 1800 and
e 1834, only puts the faithful friends of the people
o and the people's rights more firmly on their
t, guard, and binds them more firmly to the men
; and-&the measures against which it has been vin-
C dictively uttered.


- Resolved, That we regard M&RTIN VAN B U-
t REN as the avowed, the tried, the faithful, the
Y consistent follower of these great men and their
measures; that in all the actions of his life he has
so proved himself; and that slander and detraction
s only bind us more strongly to his support; that we
- well know the popular cause is sustained in sus-
e training him: that his success is the success of de.
mocracy, and the downfall of modern whiggery;
; and thgt if a mere available candidate, is put upon
- us, we shall soon see in the government of the
t Union the same unprincipled career of a set of po-
- litical desperadoea which we have lately witnessed
in that of the state of Pennsylvania during the
s transient success of federalism and antimasonry.
, Resolved, That in RICHARD M. JOHNSON,
a we recognize a statesman who has won the popu-
larity he has by a long life of patriotic usefulness;
that his body bears the records, of his dauntless
e bearing on behalf of his country in her glorious
- fields of battle; that the journals of Congress prove
s hi' true, steady, devoted in supporting, year after
a year, measures which the democratic party regard
n as the tests of faithful adherence to their principles
1 and faithful devotion to their cause.
d Resolved, That itis the solemn and serious duty
d of the State Convention, which is to meet in May
. next, to reform our cenqtitution according to the
e lights, experience and improvement of the age;
that its cardinal point must be to curtail excess of
government, whether in the executive, the le,
gislature, or the judiciary; that we regard the
3 people not only as the true source of power,
e but as the best, the mrst faithful, and the most
s sincere employers of it1 and that it should only be
so far abstracted frop them., as is necessary for
the safe administration of public business. That
all nmomopolies are odious; that the extension, and
even the grant of chartered privileges are to be
watched with the most jealous eye; and above all,
that the people of this commonwealth never will
endure a state of things which tends to take from
Themselves the power to remove any institution
obtained in violation of their known will. and ex.
erting powers in open opposition to what they
deem to be best for their happiness, prosperity and
welfare.
Resolved, That it is the duty of the legislature
to establish an immediate and thorough investiga-
tion into the affairs of the present Bank of the
United States, and the means by which it pro-
cured its charter; and that it will be the solemn


A iartg stand enthusiastic meeting of the biffidi
cratic freemen of Kensington was held at the Comr
missioners' Hall, in the district of Kensington, on
Saturday evening, Oct. 29th, WM. GRAVES,
Esq. President; David Clayton, John Rambo,
Peter Fisher, Thomas Vaughan, Jacob Collar,
Richard Eyres, Henry Lutts, John Limeburner,
Samuel C. Boggs,John Choate, Mahlon Dungan,
Jacob Hettman, and Benjamin Pettit as Vice
Presidents; and Zachariah B. Ziegler, Wm. A.
Lee, George Erwillei, Charles Roberts, and Henry
Shermer, as Secretaries.
The following named gentlemen were appointed
a committee to draft resolutions, viz. Robert Max-
well,Dr. Helffendtein, Peter Rambo. In the absence
of the committee, the meeting was addressed by
A. M. Peltz, John M. Read, and John J. McCahem.
The committee reported the following resolu-
tions, which were unanimously adopted:
The late glorious triumph of Democracy at the
October elections, over the combined forces of
federal whigism and antimasonry is a clear evi-
dence that when united, the Democratic party of
Pennsylvania is invincible-it again proudly
holds up the keystone as an example to our sister
states of thle Union, and bids them in strong em-
phatic language to "go and do likewise"-but
while we are rejoicing at the late unparalleled vic-
tory we must remember that there is yet another
battle to be fought and won; a battle which to the
free-born sons of Pennsylvania is of infinitely more
importance than that by which they so lately
covered themselves with so much honor and glory.
And whereas, notwithstanding the signal and over.
whelming defeat sustained by the whig and anti-
masonic parties at the late election, they are again
preparing for a contest, in hopes through negli-
gence to triumph over the incorruptible democra-
cy of Pennsylvania, and to give us an aristocratic
President, and an aristocratic state constitution;
hence it becomes necessary once more to give the
strong pull for the sustaining of those just, liberal
and equal principles, for the overthrow of which
our adversaries are so busy in preparing 'more rope.'
Be it, therefore,
Resolved, That we earnestly recommend to
our democratic fellow citizens that they go unani-
mously to the polls on Friday of next week, and
there support the Electoral ticket pledged to vote
for MARTIN VAN BUREN and RICHARD
M. JOHNSON, in whose ability and integrity for
the administration of our national affairs we have
full confidence.
Resolved. That we earnestly recommend the
support of the entire Democratic Convention ticket
for the County, believing that the candidates will
faithfully redeem their pledges, for the maintenance
of sound and liberal principles; and that the dem.
ocrat who scratches a ticket, will to that extent
lend his aid for the advancement of aristocratic
men and measures.
Resolved, That the charges made by the aristoc-
racy against our candidates for convention, of
Agrarianism, infidelity and disorganization, are not
made with sincerity, but the real objection of the
aristocracy to our ticket arises from its known
friendship to equal justice; and to the protection of
every citizen in the right and opportunity to ac-
quire and possess property by honest industry; a-d
from its known hostility to privileged orders, life
offices, and to property qualifications for voting
which the aristocracy would gladly establish and
perpetuate.
Resolved, That in concealing their sentiments
from the public, the candidates of the opposition
but practice upon the example set them by tyrants
and betrayers of the people in all ages-yet enough
has been acknowledged by their Editors and other
supporters to give just grounds for belief, that they
would proscribe the emigrant and the poor man-
violate the principles of the Declaration of Inde-
pendence, and to give to wealth alone that superi-
ority which should be conceded only to wisdom
and to virtue.
Resolved, That the recent advocacy by one of
the whig city papers of the British House of
Lords, in opposition to the Reform proposed by
Daniel O'Connell, is but one among the many evi-
dences of what should he expected from a Conven-
tion having a majority of aristocratic members.
Resolved, That at the present moment, when
the patriots of Spain and of Portugal are throwing
off the shackles of aristocracy and tyranny, it
would be particularly inopportune and derogatory
for us, the people of the New World, to permit
ourselves to be bound by the chains which have
been rejected by the emancipated inhabitants of
the older Continent.
Resolved, That we recommend to our democratic
citizens, that they point out and carefully watch,
on the day of election, those recreants, who bought
by gold, or stung by the disappointment of inordi-
nate ambition which seeks either to rule or to ruin,
will attempt to deceive unsuspecting democrats
into the support of a spurious ticket prepared by
their political .opponents, for the purposes of
treachery and tyranny.
SResolved, That the happy results of the expe-
rience of those neighboring states which have-
long since abolished life offices, and provided for
the election" of public agents in most cases by ai
direst vote of the people, has fully demonstrated)
the fallacy of the pretension set up by the oppo--
nents of these measures to the possession of all the.
talents and all the wisdom of the community.
Resolved, That we call upon young men, Be-
tween the ages of 21 and 22 years, and allother,s
who without any just cause have been deprive af
the right of suffrage, to support the Democatlic
Convention Ticket, which is known to be fvaron-
ble to the recognition of their well groflandedl
claims to an equality of political rights.
Resolved, That there is strong reason to suspect
extensive frauds in the returns of votes in some of
our neighboring districts at the late election; we
therefore recommend to the Legislature an early
investigation of the subject, together with the
prompt application of the proper remedy.
Resolved, That while our hostility to the United *


States Bank-to the Senators who, in voting for
it, violated the will of their constituents, and to
those who used corrupt means for obtaining the?
charter, remains unabated, and while we are re-
solved to use all constitutional, just, and reasona-,
ble means for preventing the evil consequences:
likely to flow from this stupendous treachery, we'
do nevertheless declare, that the charges made by.-
our opponents of hostility to other institutions,.
and of a desire to violate any of the just rights of.'
property, are unqualifiedly false and malicious.
Resolved, That we regret to see the nawatof
individualstwho have heretofore acted with tih-de-
mocratic party, on the Convention ticket formed;
by our political opponents, for the purpose of db-
reiving the democrats at the coming electiiLa.
We point them to the noble example of that pa-
triot democrat, John Goodman, Esq. anda bid them
imitate it.
Resolved, That the fallowing named persons bw.

to the democratic voters:
