The Blair folks aro cross about it, and

sear-During the war the Ron. C.
Vallandigham, the noted rebel from
Ohio, was the invited guest of the Hon.
Asa Packer, Democratic candidate for
Governor, at his residence in Mauch
Chunk. Soldiers of the republic, and
loyal citizens, remember the old adage,
"Show mo your company, and I'll tell
you who you are."
We have carefully waded ‘ through a
long sketch of the life of Asa Packer,
written by a Democratic admirer,which
extols all his virtues and claims every
thing for him which he is entitled to,'
and we have just three points in the
whole article. Mr. Packer has an un
impeachable private character, which
all admit. So has Gov. Geary. Mr.
Packer has no advantages over Geary
in that respect. But let us come to
what the sketch claims for Mr. Packer
as great virtues. Ho was born in Con
necticut and came to this State- when
seventeen years of ago, and settled in
Susquehanna county. He apprenticed
himself to a carpenter and joiner, and
"served his time," as all other good
boys do. He followed his trade for sev
eral years; then went to clearing some
wild land which be had bought. Be
coming tired of that, be went to Le
high Valley, bought a canal-boat and
freighted coal from Mauch Chunk to
Philadelphia. After a while in com
pany with a brother, and with the aid
of an uncle's money be started a store.
He next becthne associated with the
Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company.
In the course of a few years he had
made considerable money, so much so
that he was able, without aid from any
one, to build the Lehigh Valley Rail
road, which eventually was the means
of his amassing his present colossal for
tune. He took advantage of the ne
cessities of the Government during the
war, and while Gen. Geary was in the
field bearing his breast tothe bullets of
the enemy, Asa Packer was furnish
ing coal to the Government at enor
SuCh in a nut-shell is the rise and
progress* of Mr. Packer up to 1866,
when he founded what is known as the
Lehigh University, and endowed it
with $500,000. A large sum, truly,
out of $.20,000,000. We helieve it is
the only sum he ever gave to any in
stitution of learning or anything else.
of a public nature.
Now this is all very good, and
should stand out in bold relief as an
example to the young men of to-day,
to exert themselves in making a name
and a fortune: But we see nothing
remarkable in all this. We cannot see
that because Mr. Packer has been sue•
cessful in business and has become as
rich as Groesus, any good reason why
he should be named as the standard
bearer of any party.. His own friends
do not claim that ho is a statesman.
They do not claim that he is at all fit
ted for the Chief Executive office of
this Commonwealth. The strongest
argument in his behalf is that he is
worth twenty millions, and it is the
was chosen as the• standard•bearer of
the Democratic party. They hope, by
a liberal use of Mr. Packer's money, to
ride into power, over the honest mass
es of the people. In Gens. Hancock',
Cass or McCandless, the Democracy
could have presented men of ability,
but as they were not blessed with as
much of this world's goods as their
nominee, they were thrown aside for
the very weakest man except in dol
lars and cents, that could have been
chosen. We have no intention of do
ing injustice to Mr. Packer, but in all
earnestness we can see nothing in his
nomination, but an "itching after the
flesh pots," for his party have no idea
of electing him.
1163 - Is "John Chinaman" to be the
same source of trouble in this country
as "Sambo" was ? we are led to ex
claim on perusing the columns of our
daily exchanges. The Republican con
vention of California is willing to give
the negro a yoto, but it "opposes Chi
nese suffrage in any form." Is this
consistency ? Truly, the Chinese are
no worse than the negroes; but the
secret of opposition lies in the fact that
California is overrun with the former
while it has none of the latter; but
what they have against the Chinese is
not known to us. They come from a
nation that is superior in some arts to
America, in agriculture they excel, and
they have shown their ability for self.
government bettor than any nation on
the face of the globe. Wo hope tho
Chinamen will not be slighted, or be
deemed more unfit for the rights of an
American citizen than the negro.
soy-We don't wish to be understood
to oppose Mr. Packer because he is rich;
not at all. His riches are good enough.
Ho has made some/Me use of his twen
ty millions by donating $500,000 to
the Lehigh University—by gi vin g sums
to aid the Democratic party in its elec
tion campaigns; and lastly, by giving
his money-bags to his friends in the
Democratic Convention to secure his
nomination. Mr. Packer can enjoy
his money as he wills. He obtained it
all, perhaps, honestly, and he can dis
pose of it as ho chooses. It is own
money, and if be knows so well how
to make it, ho ought to know well hdw
to keep it; but if ho wants to spend it
in securing his election as ho did. in se
curing his nomination, he has a good
opportunity of doing so.
tta..A man was in town on Satur
day to see the show, who is going to
vote for Asa Packer and the whole
Democratic ticket again this fall, be
cause his father was a Democrat ! We
attempted to explain matters to him,
but could get no other reply than that,
ho was a Democrat, and he didn't
know why. Poor deluded creature,
in this enlightened day ! .

ar.That sterling Republican paper,
the Berks and Schuylkill Journal, thus
speaks of Packer's principal backers:

and notorious rebel sympathizer dur
ing the war, was the author of the res
olutions of the Convention which nom

Chairman of the Committee on Organ

La Crosse Democrat, thO eulogist of
John Wilkes Booth, was the outside

"The Poor Man's Candidate,"
Asa Packer and tho Boatman---$e is
Ducked in the Lehigh---A Reminis
cence of 1843.
[From the Rending Daily Timee.J
Hon. Asa. Packer, Democratic can
didate for Governor of Pennsylvania,
is immensely rich. He is said to be
worth twenty millions of dollars. It
is this great wealth that has secured
him the nomination-as in other re
spects he is a very ordinary man—not
remarkable for talent or distinguished
for public service of any sort. '
Twenty millions of dollars is a largo
sum for any ono man to accumulate in
a life time. It could never have been
accumulated by honest labor. In
Judge Packer's case his colossal fort
tune was•liuilt up by the sweat of oth
er men's brows, rather than his own.—
He became rich by grinding the faces of
the poor. As a proof of this we pro.
pose to refer back to some incidents in
his business career which have come
to our knowledge from reliable sour
Twenty-six years ago Asa Packer's
business was' that of boating on the
Lehigh and Delaware canals. Ho
made largo contracts to ship coal to
Now York and Philadelphia. Ha own
ed a number of boats himself, and in
order to fulfill his contracts, hired all
the boats and boatmen he could get at
so much per ton for transportation.—
But it seems that this "Poor Man's
Candidate" did not pay his mon living
prices, and a general "strike" of the
boatmen employed by him was the
consequence, It further appears that
while this strike was going on Mr.
Packer attempted to break it up by
forcing the mon to work for him at
half pay. He visited South Easton
where the boats were laying moored
during the strike, and attempted in
person to compel his mon to go to
work at the old rates. But so violent
was the feeling against him that he
Was seized by-the men, thrown into the
Lehigh,.and would' have been drowned
but for a timely rescue. So exasperated
were the• boatmen against Packer,
that they drove the man who had
saved his life from the ground with
stones. This incident is well remem
bered by the older residents of Easton
and by all the old boatmen on the
Lehigh. They characterize Packer
us a hard man—reaping where he had
not sown and gathering where ho had
not strewed. There aro hundreds of
Democrats in Carbon and adjoining
counties who will refuse to vote for
him on that account.
The following articles, copied from
the Easton iVhig, of 1343, give a short
history of the Boatman's Strike on
the Lehigh Canal, in that year, against
the low wages and low freight policy
of Packer and the coal transportation
companies in which he was interested :
[From the Reston Whig. ofJely 14, 1130.1
A STRIKE FOR HIGHER WAGES
The boatmen engaged in the trans-
portation of coal For the Mauch Chunk
and other companies in that region,
have tied up their boats at South
Easton and refuse to continue in the
service until an advance of prices is
allowed. Three hundred boats aro
moored in and near South Easton, and
six or eight hundred boatmen and
bands have been idling around there
for several days. To their credit' it
must ho said that so far they have
conducted themselves quietly and
orderly. They say the price is too low
to enable them to support themselves
and families, and that they aro com
pelled to ask an advance. They have
heretofore received 50 cents per ton
in good money for transporting to
Philadelphia, and they now demand
77 cents and a porportionato advance
for all intermediate places.
[From tho Easton Whig of July 19, 1843.]
'TIM COAL TRADE.
The difficulty between the boatmen
engaged in the transportation of coal
and the companies has not yet been
removed. The companies do not, it
appears, consider themselves able to
grant the advance in prices asked.—
Nearly all the boats engaged in the
coal trado, about 400 in number, are
moored opposite this place. The emp
ty boats lie in the dam, and present
the appearance of a floating village;
the loaded ones are in the canal and
cover an extent of abbut two miles.—
On Saturday forenoon the boatmen
visited our borough in procession, with
music and banners. About 200 were
mounted on horses, and as many more
were on" foot. The procession was
headed by the tow-path or driver boys,
and the rear was brought up by a
large number mounted op mules. The
whole presented an unusual and very
singular appearance, and caused quite
an excitement. The horses, with two
exceptions, were ridden without sad
dles and guided with halters, and
many of the men were barefooted and
appeared to be in want of new shirts,
all of which had a tendency to excite
a sympathetic feeling in their favor.
[From tho Eauton Whig of July 20,1843.]
All the coal boats continue idle at
South Easton and its vicinity. A ma
jority of the boatmen have gone home
and entered into other employments.
[From the Easton Whig of August 2,1813.]
TILE LIMITOR BOATMEN.
The excitement created by the largo
number of boatmen who continue at
threatening aspect on Monday and
yesterday, and from all appearances a
crisis is near at hand. On Monday
morning, Asa Packer, owner •of some of
the boats, who resides at Mauch Chunk,
attempted to move them off, when he was
seized and thrown into the Lehigh river,
and another person who assisted him out
was afterwards driven from the gronnd
with stones. Processes were issued for
the apprehension of the leaders, but
the officers were not able to apprehend

(Freak the Easton Whig, August 30, 1843.3
After a delay of more than two
months the usual activity and bustle
of business is again seen along the
line of the Mauch Chunk canal. The
Companies have agreed to pay the
