Gov. llartr.tnl't lr.u appointed Hon. J. P.
Wickersliam to tho new office of Superinten
dent of Pttblin Instruction, which takes the
placoof Superintendent of Common Schools,
Soldiers' Orphans Schools, &e. As the ap
pointment requires confirmation by tho Sen
ate, the present e imin'mion will expire upon
tho assemblage of tho Lejialaturo, when an
appointment for lour years will bo made.
As tlio appointment was not made before the
adjournment luisiuoic as tuom-ii uuv. mm
ran ft anticipated defeat and by making an
appointment within a few d i.vs of tho close
of his term desired to run tlio commission of
his Superintendent through tho entire term

tendent's terms is all wrong. The Governor
should Iiimtelfbe. directly responsible for the
management of t'.ie School Department, and
this he can not b; itnluss ho appoints tlio
Superintendent himself. The appointment
of Mr. Wickersliam is a highly proper one,
in all respects, but if ho is to be continued
throinrh a Democratic administration lie
ought to bo appointed by it.
Mr. Wickersliam b peculiarly qualified for
the position. A teacher of great experience

attention of the people to i '.i.ini li. ;hv,
of Clearfield county. Six years a State
Senator, tlneo years a Governor and six
years a Senator representing in part tlio
State nf Pennsylvania in tho Senate of the
United States, that staunch and pure Dem
ocrat never failed to fulfill conscientiously
and cU'ectively his various official obliga
tions. Always true to tho constitution ol
his Stato anil of tlio Federal Union, he
gr.i'ped with calm courago and rare judg
ment iho many contingencies of legislation
and of executive ditty which encountered
liim at every step in his long and auluous
I will venture to assert, without tho fear
of contradiction, that there is not now liv
ing in I'ennsytvaiiia a single prominent
Democrat who passed triumphantly and
unscathed through the many trying ordeals
that tested tlio talents, tlio po'litioal faith,
tho honesty ,thecnurage and the patriotism of
William liigler ! While yet but a young
man, he commenced his political career in
the Senate of his State, (which then had
suspcndo.1 the payment of iutcrcston its debt
in conc(uenee ol tho great panic ol '.i.s.l
as the ardent defender of tho public faith,
in opposition to tho demagogues who then
advocated the horrid doctrine of lcpudia-
In accordance with that honcit and sound
policy ,heat tlio same time forcibly advocated
in the Senate the bill which compelled toe
banks to resume specie payments, and the
ever memorable bill'whicli abolished forever
in the Stale nf Peniisvlvauiathat last ve.-tige
of barbarism, the law of imprisonment for
debt 1 niav here remark that tins was
e-sentially a Democratic measure, every
Whig in each branch of tho legislature vol
incr inralust it.
There is a strong resemblance between the
panic of ';!S, which swept over tho country
with blasting devastation and brought even
the great State of Pennsylvania to tho very
ve-re of bankruptcy, and the' panic of '7.'!
inaugurated by the failure of Jay Conko a
Co., tlio Unites! States government bankers.
In each case the trouble came fiom enormous
speculations and the worthlcvsncs-, of an
unredeemable paper currency. Would it
not then be wi-e and politic to place the
helm of Stale in the hands of him who, iu
his youth, contributed so much to rescue his
-uato from tno con-eniiciiccs ot tho same
calamities which now oppress us?
William Rigler was not bom with a silver
spoon in his mouth ; on tho contrary, ho
passed in his youth through the severe or
deal of poverty and toil. His parents, mnt
respectable persons, lemoved shortly auer

hrst rcvcnteeu years nt lus lite maiiluliy
battling with the toils and privations nl a

sell-made men of Pennsylvania graduated
and took their degrees, There ho learned to
think and express his thoughts. At the ago
nf twenty he removed to Clearfield. Clear
field county, where, with nu old pics nnd
ha -worn tvnes. he commenced the publica
tion uf a 'Democratic paper. Here the
energy and self-reliance he had acquired iu
tho lo'resls of Mercer did not desert him :
throii.ru many difficulties ho succeeded in
establishing liis paper on a linn basis and iu
winning the respect and good willofnU who
knew him. Some three years, after his ar
riwil in Clearfield ho married oli-s Maria I.

that ho announced that no l'ennsylvatiiiiu

that Cameron is demanding the appointment

The key to all this is that a C-ibinct position
is esteemed equal to about fifty other good
