; True Democracy, according to the
: standard established by Jr.rPEnsox and
hilt associates, is a principle of Jtistice
no: to be appalled, corrupted, cr crunpro-
nosed. It holds that ad men arecreateci
equal. and that every man—black, white,
red, or mixed—has an in,aYieualilc right
:ihorty. Ent sham Democrrcy, such
as has ruled Pennsylvania for sears, is
the 'very opposite of :his. It lives by
compromising away the rights of free.
non. 1: holds that slavery is justifiable,
and is in favor of breaking down all
barriers to its indefinite extension. For
roof of this, note the following quota
tions from the Harrisburg Union of April
12. Speaking of the attempts of the
Montrose Democrat to make out Bratr.R
opposed to the Nebraska. bill, the Ciiion
says :

"It is now well understood that Mr.
Poflock, the whiz candidate. will stump
the State, and that he will take the same
side of the Nebraska question which the
Speaker or the House so ably advocates
—that is, he; will „ agitate" against the
Doug.lis bill— and we think the demo
cratic editor should be satisfred -with
having one candidate on his sick. ; it is
asking too much to claim both. When
Gov. Bigler shall speak on this question
.we wilf chronicle his sentiments; until
then v.-'e shall rest happy in the belief
that on the Nebraska question, as on all
others, he will be found acting with his
democratic friends."

Again—in another article dissenting
from the advice of the N;l'
Deidocitn to abandon the present the
National Administration; the Union gives
the folcwing reasons for standing by
President Pierce :
For instance, the Nebrastia bill is
known to be approved by the President,
and a majority at least of the Cabinet..
Tile principles of Mal I! are unde
niably demneratir. and we think we are
not mistaken in saying are concurred in
by the 11..w-York liirds. Would they,
therefore, oppose what they believe to
be right, mealy because Gen. Pierce
diappens to bu in the Presidential chair,
and some men equally obnoxious to them
in the Cabinet ? We cannot think sn.
Let 1850 take care cf itself—but in the
meantime let the administration be sus
tained in all ritiht measures by the undi
vided national democracy.'
In another article the same paper says
Let us place cur feet firmly upon
the Baltimore platform,.-let us espouse
nt once the compromise measures of
1550—let us stand shoulder to shoulder
as national democrats, scouting all out
side ci.ceti-n44:and toning a deaf car to
all the schemes of an d
treache:ous hearts to lead us from our
true position:"
But the following places the position of
Bint.rn Democracy onymg the shams
beyond dispute. Says the Union: •
Whatever timid leaders or time
serving politicians may say to the con
trary, we contend, as we have from the
first contended, that the Democracy of
l'e nnylvaniu favor the principles of
,Nebraska bill, and that he or they
who d.sert the party on that issue, can
be Icokt-d upon in no other light thin as
the allies of- whits and abolitionists. 7
tVe believe the assertion in the above.
paragraph, that the BIGLER party are in
favor of the Nebraska bill, cannot be
questioned Vor denied ; and hence we
are curious to see how many of the rank
and file in this county who have deter
mined to oppose that measure at all
hazards, will be coaxed or driven to sup
port the party that tnahes the repeal of
the Mi.ssouri Compromise, and the
tension of Slavery a test question.
Effects of the Erie-Troubles
We are glad to learn that there is a
dispo•zition on the part of some of our
merchants to buy their goods for the
future in Philadelphia. instead of New-
York. The business men of New York
attempted to crush Pennsylvania be
cause they could not override the peo
ple of Erie. If the merchants of the
western part of the State will be true to
them-selves they will take advantage of
the liberal inducements held out to them
by the heavy mercantile houses in
Philadelphia; and in the mean time,
the merchants of that city should adver
tise liberally -in the local papers of this
part of the State.—Conneautville.6'ou
ricr. .
So are we glad at the very general
manifestation of self-respect, which the
merchants of Western Pennsylvania are
exhibiting. The New York merchants
and editors undertook to annex Erie
county to their city, and because they
could not succeed they forthwith Stig
matize the whole people as rowdies and
rioters. If these unfounded charges
shall open the eyes of our people to
Cle true interests of the State, the evils
of the Erie disturbances will not be
without good results.

True Enough.
The Susquwzna Register of Aptii
, 13, has an article on the position.of the
• Bigler- party of this State, and the cow
' ardly attempt of their State convention to
(I(tge the Nebraska . question. The
Register article closes as follows:
How the Governor has changed his
tune since 1851 Then the whole sal
vation of this - nation depended upon the
opening of our jails as slave-pens for
Southern slaveholders, and Governor
Johnston was denounced in the most
unmeasured terms. because he . was
going to veto the bill that was to accom
plish that desirable object. Then it
was all very pleasant and proper to
brin7 the whole power of a:pro-slavery
administaation to bear in his favor. be
cause his opponent dared to think and
net as became a:Northern freeman; but
now, when the north is forced to speak
out, and speak so as to be heard, Gov.
Bigler is mum ; and some of- his friends
cannot see why the Nebraska question
need enter at all into the. State election.
We think there are several reasons why
it should. and be the culminating point
of the next canvass. It is one of more
vital importance than al . / others that
have been
. presented to the American
people for the last quarter of a century.
The Missouri Compromise of 1820,
provided that all the territory North of
:36 deg. :30 min. should be free: the
Nebraska bill repeals the Act of 1820,
and opens a new and fertile territory of
hundreds of thousands• of square miles ,
in extent, to the blight - of Slavery, giving
the lie to all our professions of love of
liberty and equal rights, so long the
boast of Ainniza. Should the question
remain - open till after the Pennsylvania
election, the result will no-doubt be
decisive of the measure. Pennsylvania
gives more votes for the bill than any
other Northern State ; a majority of the
Democratic papers as well ns members
of Congress, support- the bill, and the
Governor dodges the question, not know
ing which will be the strongest , side.
Let Gov. Bigler be reelected, and the
members returned who support the bill,
and it will be claimed, from Maine to
Louisiana, as a Nebraska victory—a
demberatic triumph. With what in
tense interest did the people look for
the returns of the elections in New
Hampshire, Connecticut, and Rhode
Island and although the Democrats of
those States declared that the Nebraska
question-was not involved in the issue,
yet the people did not believe them, but
voted in a mariner that their ivoulcl-be
nesters at ‘Vashingtort understood them
most fully.
We have more to say upon this sub
ject another time. We believe there
are thousands of Demo-:rats in the State
who are heartily and
.honestly opposed
to the extension of slave territory, and
are n:.4 in favor of dodging a question of
such momentous moment to the welfare
of the whole country; and unless we
are greatly in error, before Gov. Bigler
has played out his game of hide and:
hit will be constrained to admit
that honesty Is toe ors,
We have italicised two lines of the
above, which- contain a very important
confession. We subscribe most heartily.
to this article of the Register,_ and . think
it contains more truth tnan the Whig,
press generally will ailmit. The Register
very truly says, that the. Nebraska ques
tion "should be the culminating point of
the next canvasS," and that " there are
thousands of Democrats in the State
who are heartily oppoSed to the exten
sion of alaVe territory." This being
true, may we not ask why the Whigs
will not so modify their action, as to
allow. this "culminating
. point" to be
surrounded by all without reference to
old issues; and thereby clear the taack
for an independent candidate. for Govern
or, who would receive the - enteusiustic
support of these thousands of honest
democrats, who are heartily opposed to
the extension of slavery.:
Every such democrat, while remem
bering that the honest and fearless Lor
imer failed to receive; the nomination,
simply because the compromise Whigs
controlled the convention, and required
a man of their stamp, will hesitate a:
good while before voting for Judge Pol
lock, who has never yet given any evi
dence of opposition to the extension of
slave Territory, except his endorsement
of the resolutions adopted by the Whig
convention, one of which- opposes the
Nebraska fraud, and .another one en
dorses the compromise measures of
1550, including the fugitive slave bill.
ams understood well the duties of the
pulpit. In a letter addressed to his
wile, dated Philadelphia, July 7, 1774,
he enquirer : "Does Mr. Willbind preach
against oppression and the other cardi
nal vices of the times? Tell him the
clergy here of every 'denomination, not
excepting the Episcopalian, thunder
and lighten every Sabbath." The cler
gy of the Revolution gave effectual aid
and comfort to the cause of liberty.
They assailed wickedness in high
places as well as in low, and dealt with
public as With private sins. Oppression
on the part of rulers they held to be a
flagrant crime, demanding the sternest
rebukes of the pulpit.
The Ten Hours Law.
There is prpgress even in Pennsyl
vania. The operatives in !the manufae
turing districts of the Slate have been
laboring for years to , have the length of
a day's work defind by law. -They
have at last succeeded, and though it
has but little practical interest to our
readers, from the fact that in this section
the mass of the people are their own
employers; yet we recognize this as one
of the great humanitary movements of
the day, which is calculated to elevate
and dignify labor, and therefore ive feel
a deep interest in the success of this

UPLAND, Delaware County,.Pa.,.
April 10, ISM.
Drar Sir,—l write to inform you
that the Legislature of this-State has
passed the ten hours law. The third
section. of the bill prohibits "all , under
twenty-one years of age from working
above ten hours in any one day."' The
House passed this section by . a large
majority, forty four yeas and eight nays.
The Senate was evidently against us,
for they voted that! all. minors sixteen
years of age should be competent to
contract, or their parents or guardians
for.thern, to work eleven hours a day.
But the Senate was forced,to-recede, and
they gave passed the bill as it came
from ;the House. The vo:c on the
third section prohibiting all under twen
ty-one years of age from working above
ten hou rs a day, was "yeas. eighteen,
nays thirteen. And on the final ;tote
the yeas were. twenty-seven, and nays
four. Believing that this information
would give you much pleasure, I , feel
highly gratified in forwarding, it. In
the hope; sir, that your exertions in
Massachusetts will be attended with the
same success,
I remain yours respectfully,
An InexcusOle Dodge.
• We regret that the Demotratic'State
Conventiori did not express its sense
upon the - most important political ques
tion which now engages the • public
mind. A " dodge" may he sometimes
convenient, but it is never manly nor
honest, and always tends to impair con-
fidence in those who resort to it. If the
liemocr,m,.. ,•--..:, nf. Pennsylvania. is in
favor of adhering,to the principle or
interference- by Congress with the Do
mestic affairs of -the Territories, which
formed the basis of ff he compromise
measures of 1830, its c nventiorr should
not have hesitated to ,ay so. On the
other hand, if it has ceased to appreciate
that principle, and is opposed to its ex
tension to Territories hereafter to be-i
organized, the people have a right to'
know the•fact. In either case it Was
proper for the Convention to speak out.
But we cannot doubt hoW it would have
spoken, had the voice of its majority
been allowed a hearing; for we are per
fectly satisfied that the sentiment of - the
democracy of Pennsylvania upon the_
enbject of Corigressional interference
with slavery, has undergone no change
since it, was so plainly declared with
reference to, rind in support of, the
Compromise of 1850.—Reading Gazelle.
With a trifling amendment, the above
article would contain more truih than
often gets into a paper which . unites de
mocracy and - slavery under one flag.
- The Gazette is satisfieSthat the de
mocracy of Pennsylv.4nia are in favorlif
the repeal of the Missouri Compromise
and the extension of' slavery. If it-had
said the politicians who rule its party
are in favor of this .measure its article
would need no amendment, but it is a
slander on the rank and file ,of any
party, to huy that they are in favor of
submitting', *to the dictation of .300,000
elaveholders. • The North has been ser-
vile.. not because the people are so, but
because they have :allowed the politi
cians to rule them.
We are glad to see the cowardly con
duct of the Bigler Convention so thor
oughly exposed ; and we hope the
people will have the manliness to repu
diate the control of those who dare not
express nn opinion on "the most impor
tant political question which now en
gages the public mind."

Spitting on . the Platform.
The J3radford Reporter, though it
supports the candidates of the conven
tion, thus valiantly derides its resolutions:
WE had suppoied also that we, had
seen'the last declaration of the finality
of the compromise of 1850. This has
been repeatedly proclaimed in Congress
and in State and National Conventions,
and yet nothing Is more certain than
that the "vexed and dangerous question "
is now agitating the country and " metr
acing the existence of the Union," in a
degree never before experienced. If
the Democracy of Pennsylvania "regard
it as a solemn and deliberate settlement
of controversy," why did they not re.
buke the ambitious promptings which
have enkindled the flame of sectional
agitation ; ,which in violation of the most
solemn declarations of the Baltimore
platform, again brings the slavery ques
tion before the country, by an attempt to
violate national compacts. to infringe
upon the obligations one section is under
to the otter, in defiance .of good faith,
and the understanding entered into,
thirty years ago:
If - the hist resofution means anything
—if it is not senseless twaddle—if it is
noChistoriCally incorrect, and out of time
and stale- r —it means to convey a rebuke
to. the authors of the Nebraska outrage,
and intends to denounce those who are
now disregarding the finality."' and
violating the .Baltimore platform and en
dangering.; the existence of the Union !
This prestimption is sustained by the
fact that the Convention v.iatuntly ex
pressed their disapprobation of Douglas'
Nebraska bill, by refusing to endorse it
—and negatived, by the resolution ap
proving the course of BRODZEAD, who
hasstopped at nothing demanded by the
South, even to disfranchising foreigners
who may 'settle in the Territories. We
arestill in perplexity rind doubt.
By a proper union of the independent
voters of all parties, upon good men, the
present administration and the corrupt
legislature, may be overthrown—but.
thiS work is too great' to be performed
by the present Whig party, which so
disgracefully debased itself by, its course
in adopting the Baltimore platform of
1832 ; and , we fear an adlierence to its
issues, may result in the triumph of
the present ant.•Linit bank, anti-Nebras
