ClfARI.CS GIBBOXS. ESQ.
Most of our readers, we presume, have
not forgotten the valuable eerviccs which
this gentleman rendered to the Whig par
ty pending the Gubernatorial and' Presi
dential elections of 1814, and will there
fore be surprised to learn that several
"Whig journals in the city of Philadel
phia have arrayed themselves in opposi
tion to him for his liberal and honorable
course in the Senate, on the subject of
granting- the "right of way" to the Balti
more and Ohio Railroad Company.
Philadclphians, often short-sighted and
always selfish are at this time exerting
their utmost influence to defeat that mea
sure, and one of their Senators, Mr.
Crabb, is. using all his powers of per
suasion to give it the go-by in the Senate;
while Mr. Gibbons is pursuing a contra
ry coursc7from an honest conviction, no
doubt, that ii so doing he will be promo
ting the best interests of the Common
wealth and of her citizens at large. In
that course Mr. Gibbons will be sustain
ed, not only by the Whigs in the interior
of the State, but by the liberal of all par
ties everywhere. That he should be de
nounced by the city papers opposed to
him in politics, was to have been expect
ed; but tbat Whig journals should try to
prostrate him, is indeed surprising. Such
ungenerous conduct ought not and will
not be suffered to pass unrebuked. Hith
erto Philadelphia has been much favor
ed in our Stats legislation, .and in return
for those favors, whenever other sections
ask to be similarly treated, her citizens
combine to defeat everything that does not
exacdy .meet their own selfish views, and
would even sacrifice one of their best
men to accomplish their purpose. It is
time that Philadelphian should be made
to know and feel that they constitute but
a email portion of the population of the
State, and that they cannot, therefore, entirely-
control her legislation.-
I'hfiiicleliibia vs I'cririsj Ivanla.
Such is the indignation that ha3 been
croused in the interior of the Stale a
pranst the selfish, contracted, illiberal
course which the citizens of Philadelphia
.re pursuing in regard to the proposed
cxtensicn of the Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad to Pittsburgh, that it will be diffi
cult for them hereafter to carry any meas
ure of their own in the Legislature.
Many of our public works and on
account of which the pceple are now bur
dened with taxes were constructed for
the special benefit of Philadelphia and

money, but for privileges only, which will

In Pittsburg there appears to be a deter
mination to bring the Phihdelpkians to
thfcir senses, if anything will. The A
mericanof the 18ih says, 'papers are
noiv in circulation throughout the city,
receiving a:i almost unanim ous signature,
pledging the parties, to buy no goods of,
or dral with no merchant i:i the city who
will continue from this out to purchase
any of hw supplies in Philadelphia,"

Kot having received any caetcrn pa-

would be a close one, but expressed the o-

The Philadelphians, on account -of the
pertinacity of the west, in claiming a
share of lite advantages of legislation are
now agitating the propriety ol having a
separate State or sovereignty formed out
of the territory lying between the rivers
Delaware and Schuylkill. Their only
objection is, to taking so much of Berks
county in, although including Oley.
Could they succeed in this, they would
effectually shut themselves off from the
"outside barbarians'.' west of their vision
that is; as far as the . eye can carry
from Fairmount Pittsburg American.
fcCy We object to Oley being included
in the new "Sovereignty." The people
of that "-rreen soot"arc too liberal in their
views to be hitched to anything that is
more selfish and contracted than Old
Berks itself. Lst Oley be established as
an independent district, or what in Ger
many they call a "Freistadl" and it
will take care of itself; while the balance
of the county will be well yoked in being
placed alongside of Philadelphi a.

they are hereby instructed to ' furnish the
Clerk of the House with a copy of the
same, to be printed.
Mr. Davis at the same time moved the
previous question, so as to cut off debate,
and to lake the resolution without the
rule, under which it was subject to be
laid over for debate.
Mr. Haralson inquired if the commit
tee had submitted to the House any report
on the subject of the tariff.
Mr. McKay, chairman of the commit
tee, answered in the negative.
Mr Rathbun moved that the resolution
be laid on the table.
JThe yeas and nays on this m otion were
called for from various quarters of the
House, and were ordered.
And the question being taken that the
resolution do lie on the table, it passed in
the affirmative, 103 to G9.

A lerge number of the citizens of West
moreland County, friendly to the Balti
more and Ohio Railroad, assembled in
public meeting, at the Court House, in
Greensburgh, on Tuesdav evening, the
17th inst., and after organizing and ap
pointing a committee to prepare resolu
tions, adjourned till 1 o clock 1 . 31., on

reported a series of spirited resolutions
which were adopted by the meeting, and
from which we select the following
Resolved, That we are una ble to
perceive any just cause why our Legisla
ture, at its present session, should not
pass Bills or Acts incorporating a compa
ny to construct a Rail Road which would
complete, by means of its connection, the
route between Philadelphia and Pittsburg;
as also to grant the right of way to the
Baltimore and Ohio. Rail Road Company
to pass through this State to the City of
Pittsburgh, under such restrictions as
they in their wisdom, should deem meet
imposed upon such company, so as not
to prohibit them from a ccepting of their
Resolved, Th3t we fear as well as re
gret that the excitement and bad feeling
now between the people of the Western
part of the State and the city of Philadel
phia, on the subject of granting the right
of way to the Baltimore and Ohio Rail
road, will eventually result in' a scpera
tion of the ties which have heretofore
bound us to her, and induce our Western
merchants to seek new commercial rela
tions in tne East.
On motion, of WTah Murry,
Resolved, That W'estern Pennsylva
nia is highly indebted to Chas. Gibbons,
Esq.. of Philadelphia city, for his vigor-
i ous and able support of the policy of
j granting the "right of way" to the :Balti
i more and Ohio Rsilrond Company.
Hon. Andrew Stewart.
f W were; informed the other day by
a gentleman from Oley township, that
several of his Locofoco neighbors who
had Mr. Stewart's admirable speech on
the Tariff, published by us a week, or
two ago, were so well pleased with it
that thev declared and insisted in rood
and solemn earnest that Mr. S. belonged
to theih party. We beg leave to set
these gentlemen right. The Hon. AN
DREW STEWART is a citizen of
Fayette county, and represents the 18th
Concessional District, composed of the
counties of Favette, Somerset and Green.
He is a Democrat, of tub right sort

DEMOCRATIC WHIG. We regard
him as the best man in Congress from
this Stite,' for whenever the interests of
Pennsylvania are attacked, Mr. tlfc-

testing, inch bv inch, every foot of ground
upon, which the tariff of 1842 now em
phatically the mo Iatiff rest lor
support. e are not surprised that his
plain, common sense speeches and argu-
men's have won all hearts, and gained
him hosts of friends from his political op
ponents. The tunc may come when the
people of Pennsvlrauia will have it in
their power 10 snow meir sense oi ma
worth bv elevating him to the highest
office in their gift, and we trust that when
that time arrives thev will not fail to do
their duty to him, as he is now doing his
