Spiring is coming, with her flowers.
And her sunshine, and her showers;
Spring is coming—Spring is coming!

HARIUSEURG, March 17, 1859.
iianisburg has been thronged for several
•lays. Collectors, Surveyors, Post Masters,
Contractors, and their swarms of hangers-on
have been here by platoons to regulate the lio
'•ofoco party. It was of little consequence
who should be nominated for the Smtc offices
to be filled ; for but Jiitlc hope is entertained
of the success of the ticket ; but i: was impor
tant to Mr. Buchanan and his office-holders
••hat his Kansas, Free Trade nnu Cuba policy
should be endorsed, and to that end the efforts
of the faithful were directed.
When the delegates cumc here fresh from
their constituencies, a very large majority were
in favor of conciliation, uuiou and harmony —
they were willing to allow differences of opinion
on dangerous, questions and lend their best en
ergies to consolidate the party and give it suc
ees, if possible. But this did not suit Buch
anan arid his adherents. We arc within one
year tf another Presidential nouiinatiou: and
t the lost of utter defeat, Pennsylvania inu-:t
be kept in the leading-strings of the South.—
It the Convention had been froe from Presi
dential interference, there would have been
harmonious action between the Buchanan and
ait; Buchanan wings. A platform free from
off-nce to either would have been adopted—
and Packer would have been endorsod generally,
and the party would have started in the coming
contest apparently united, at least, and could
have made an earnest struggle to redeem the
state. But Mr. Buchanan seems to be con
*ivent only in the unmingled bitterness with
wtiich he pursues those who do not yield blind
obedience to bis administration, and be prefer
red to stand, with the empty bauble of an en
dorsement, upon the wreck of bis party, to
•eeiqg that party united and vigorous ami uc
kn wiedging other gods than himself.
1 be national office-holders changed the whole
curreution. 1 counted some twenty of tbeni—

i In addition to these, a cloud of contractors and
> expect acts were on bands, ail demanding the
1 special endorsement c!' Leaomptonism and the
other loading features of Buchanan policy.—
The nnri-Lcoompton men weie choked down
from the rery outset. They tried to make tiio
. delegates faee iljo music by a direct vote for
P. e-ii'Tt of tbc Convention , but that did not
accord with the Distractions from Washington,
and that importaut post Lad to be filled by t>
c immittee. AgiD, when the committee on
; resolutions Lvl to be chosen, the auii-Lccomp
ton men demanded that the delegates from each
, Senatorial district should select one member cf
j the committee, si that ther** should be a fair
| expression of the sentiment of each district,
| but that also wis voted dean. Hon. Arnold

could R it be brought to swallow the platform
of the 1 ffice-botders without much hesitation,

followed by Hagus, of Sorner s et, who gave the
: boy some wholesome advice and brought dawn
j the Lonse frequently by bis happy hi*?. He
, Hta'id that if the policy laid down by Scow-Jen
prevailed, the delegates would have done
I themselves ;ud the .State more Ciodit by giving
to the poor the money trey were expen iing to
come 0 II arris burg to uomiua'e a ticket. This
! sueecb urettv vff,;ct'j*l!y sdrneed the insolence
jol tb° ofnee-bolders, and no one coul'. be got
to defend their pel toy. FmnUy Professor Gar
diner, the o:p-;tiau, who vends his goisls on
; the streete an t cracks stale jokes to the boys,
w.;s prevailed upon to cutertam tbe convention,
lie opened in a speech approving the Nitiana!
Administration generally and his sosp in par-
Ocular, •! ccuitnesaed both to the f*vcr
j consiacreiioa of the public.

' the scope of a Tariff for necessary rivenue !
n-xt tiie purchase o: Cuba is cotuujcndcd, which
| is an approval of the startling proposition of
the President to lake §30,000,000 for that
purpose, when the treasury is utterly bankrupt
! and a heavy Darioual debt loaded upon tie —
■ next Senator Bigier is endorsed for betraying
j the people of iho State on the Tariff and on the
Kansas question. At this stage of the pto
j ceediogs, the autt-Lecompton men found that
i the office-hollers Lai determined that Gov.
Packer must be totally ignored, for his name
oid not appear in the resolutions. Mr. Lim
j bcrtoc, of Daupiiiu, offered the following as an
; additional resolution:
t Resolved, Tbst we tppiove the State policy
;of Gov. Wm. F. Packer. His just exercise of
j she veto power has been fearless and Demo
cratic, and Lis administration of the affairs of
our Commonwealth and the execution of the
t 1 iw, commands our commendation.
It will he seen that the Packer rendu!ion did
j not refer to Licotnptou or auy of the other
issues upon which (tie office-holders and Gov.
Parker split; hut simply endorses bis State
i policy. Kvea this small boon was not iu the
Washington programme. Aknotot Collectors,
Marshal. .4, P. st Masters, & •., counselled be
hind the Speaker's chair,and the resolution must
be voted down ; and forthwith the edict went
forth aud was obeyed Lumlicrtou, llugu
..and others stood up boldly and warned the
majority of the fatal consequences o f attempt
i irjg to discrace the State administration when
• its only crimo was c consist ant devotion to the
principles which elected Air. Buchanan; bu !
j madness ruled the hour, and the resoluiion was
lost, 81 to 37. Douglas, Saaaom, Stable and
Myers, of your Senatorial district, all voted
I with the majority. Ssusuin, though an avowed
anti-Lecomptou mn, is one of Mr. Buchanan's
post-masters ; Douglas is an ultra Leoomptouite
1 and voted consistently ; and Stable, of Adams,
is a candidate for Senator next fall. It is
i worthy of notice 'hat the first man who voted
aguiust the resolution, endorsiug Packer, was
; Mr. Acker, of Sahylkill, who was pardoned by
j Gov. Packer last summer and thus saved an im
prisonment Jor Libel!
1 iMr. Collins offered the following resoluiion,
which the President of course ruled our of or
