rir Somt: of our hunker friends an
quite anxious to have the people believe
that the active friends of Temperance
herealiouts are simply working for pop
ularit.y. These poor, envious souls can
learn of any of the old citizens of the
coratty, if they will take the trouble to
etnicrire,that the same men were equally
iealocts for the Temperance cause when
it was an exceedingly unpopular one.
Col. Benton has given the Doug
las fraud its finishing touch—we think.
The speech of this veteran statesman,
delivered in the House of Represents-
Lives on the 2fith of April, is among the
allcst of the session, and will be read by
every voter in the free States, we hope.
'We shall publish extracts enough from

C7' Why did every prominent slare
tolder who took part in the Revolution,
vend in establishing the present Govern
ment of the United States, restore his
Own slaves to their natural rights be
lore his death ? ' Because they knew
ehvery to be inconsistent with the
Goternment they had formed, and in
opposition to the principles they pro.
fessitd to maintain. They knew that to
hold on to their slaves was to. remain in
union with despots. So they « let the
•ppressed go free," and thereby set an
sample which, if it had been generally
llowed, wrauld have abolished Slavery
,ing ago. And, yet, unfeeling men, of
-he present day have the hardihocd to
quote W.Asniricrox as a ddender of
Slavery. They might as well quote our
Savior as a disciple of Beelzebub.
tThe session of the Grand Division
S. of T. of Pennsylvania which met here
'on Wednesday last, was an occasion of
great interest to those of our citizens
who took part in its proceedings. The
Attendance was not large, owing in part
to the late freshet, which took several
delegates to market with lumber. Still
Aviihad delegates from IPN:can, Potter,
Pradford, and Tioga counties, who gave
unmistakable evidenceof their zeal in
the good cause by their attendance at
ale most disagieeable time for traveling
that we have had since last November.

by looking at their report. They " de

of Temperance with party politics," and
yet they were the only members of the
committee who introduced that •subject
into the deliberations of the Committee,
and Mr. Ellis was the first speaker to
introduce "party politics" into the dis

Will Judge Pollock Decline ?
We have received several private let
ters which intimate a doubt whether
Judge Pollock will maintain the field as
Whig nominee for Governer.. Some
strong and conspicuous Whigs are in
favor of the Judge withdrawing to leave
a free field to David Wilmot to beat
Bigler. If it could be made clear the
Judge's withdrawal would enable Wil
mot to defeat Bigler, and teach the Slave
power an everlasting lesson, we do not
know we should offer any objection to
the arrangement ourselves.
Willi - tot is no Whig, but could not the
Whigs for 'once, give their help to beat
their enemies, without reward in place
or power to themselves ? Let us hear
from our friends on this mere hint. We
are quite ready and willing to make
personal and party sacrifices for the de
feat of the , enemy at this. mouientous
crisis.—Pitts. Com. Journal, April 18.
We like the spirit of the above article.
The Commercial is an old and reliable .
Whig paper, and yet manifests such a
liberal spirit as would soon secure union
and harmony among the opponents of
Governor Bigler, if :a majority of its
party act thus liberally And wisely.
Whatever the result, we.shali always
hold the Editor of the Commercial in
high esteem for his manly course.

I Single Districts.
It ii , ,evidetu to every one who thinks
on the -subject for a moment, that true
klemcichtcy req(iites all repreaeitative
officers to b l e'etected on single tickets.
For instance—a few years
. ago several of
, Staten . elected their whole delegation to
Candresi on one ticket. The resat was
that the party, havitig a majoritylin the .
Stale of a single foie; 'would elect the
- fintiretlelegation; The peoplege4erally
were opposed-to such ariti-riptlidican
practices s• and Congiess passed' an act
requiring each State to he diVi/ed into
Lis . many districts as it, was en t ied to
members of Congress. But New Hemp
, shire and South-Carolina, being tinder
the control of sham democmti, disre 7 _
regarded, the act of Congress, 'and re:
fused to district their respective States
in accordance' therewith. When the
members from these States, elect id on
the old gener,ll.ticket system, iirerted
themselves, they were refuled ad mksion,
and the act of Congress was e4ced.
Since that the district ticket systent has
been adopted for all legislative °ricers
in nearly all the States. But in hti3lier
ridden Pennsylvania,the anti-democratic,
log-rolling; double-district system still
prevails, notwithstanding the efforts of a
large number of the people to
. secnre
_reform in this respect. An effort of this
kind has just been defeated in the Senate
of the State, and we ask our readers to
note well the names of those voting
against thii genuine republican measure.
On the 19th inst. the following proceed
ings were had in our State Senate
The amendments to the Constitutien,
to restrict the increase of the State debt,
and to prevent municipal subscriptions
to railroads, were discussed.

Philadelphia Conference
This body closed its session on the
28th ult. It reports a membership, pro

last year, which gives au increase for
the year of 2.287. On the resolutions
of the Troy • Conference, asking the
General Conference to insert a rule in
the Discipline forbidding "the buying
and selling of human *beings, except in
view of emancipation, and the voluntary

against the Troy Conference resolution,

point. If our friend states a fact, then
we must conclude there has been an

The People have not asked for any
such legislation. On the contrary, all
classes and conditions of Whigs,
Dernoceats,, and Free Soifer's, have pro :
tested against it.
The National Era forcibly says:
WE need hardly say, that the author
of the Bill, with its supporters in Con
gress and out of it, knOws, that the only
sovereignty over Territories of the Union
resides in the' Fedenti Government hat
the Bill itself proceeds, from its enacting
clause to its last provittion..npon this
assumption ; that only on this assump
tion, can any Bill for the 'organization of
a Territorial .Government. be • justified ;
that to assume that the.'inhabitants of a '
Territory .have the right of sovereignty
is to deny-the distinction - between Slates
and Territories, and • claim for the latter
the same rights and rank that. belong to
the former..
Into What then does this' specious
'decimation about, Popular Sovereignty
in Territories, resolve itself? , Simply
into this—a claim that any number of
settlers therein; ':indisposed to earn their
bread by the,sweat of their brow, shall
be allowed to live ?Ton the labor of
slaves; and to secure this great and
precious privilege, Congress is -called
upon to repeal the Missouri Compromise
in Nebraska, under which the, laborer is
deemed worthy of his hire, tend entitled
to the full enjoyment of the fruits of his
own work.. This, is '!the simple and
sublime" issue presented by the Ne
braska Bill—nothing more, nothing less.
In ,ml,9utaining the act of 1820, and
resisting3he attempt to .repeal it, we
stand Upon the true ; doctrine of Popular
Sovereignty. Bythe votes of "a major
ity of. the Ipresentatives and Senators
in Congress; and by the sanction. of the
President, representing and exercising
the Sovereignty of the People and States
of the,Union; over United States Terri
tories, that act became a Law ; a Law it
has continued for . the last thirty-three
.years, the People - and States of the
Union acquiescing in it, no attempt
in all that time having been made for its
repeal. If any Law is invested with
the sanction of Popular Sovereignty,
that Law is.
On the other hand, the Bill to repeal

class of sfaveholclens, who have no re
spect for the rights, or interests of the
People, when opposed to their policy.
No Press, no primary meeting of the
People, no State Convention, no Legis
lature. North, South, East, or West.
had intimated .any dissatisfaction with
the Act of 1820, or a desire for its re
peak ' so that the Bill is nothing, but an
attempt of a Would-be Sovereign Class,
to annul a great measure, enacted by
the real Sovereign People, sustained by
them for the third of a century, and still
resting on the sanctions orthcir will.
The Act bears the stamp of Popular
Sovereignty ; the Bill to repeal it, bears
the stamp of a Class interest, which
cares no more for the political rights of
the free People of the United States,
than it• does for the natural rights of the
three millions of slaves, on whose unpaid
labor it has grown fat and arrogant. - •
Since reading the above, the following
Washington letter has been received and
shows up more clearly the total disre
gard of popular sovereignty,, by the en
tire Nebraska supporters :

WASHINGTON, April 24, 1854.
The process of incubation over a Ne
braska bill has been going on for some
time past,-and it will
,be introduced to
the House on the . very first favorable
opportunity, or as soon as the advocates
of the measure, either 'froth accident or
any other cause, find theMselves in the
House with a working majority. If has
been decided, that it must be pushed
through without discussion; and it will
probably Come in as ' an amendment to
some unimportabt bill previously desig
nated, the previeds question'sprung on
it, and the' whole aka .done up before
the Opponents of the measure are fully
aware of what is going on. At least
such -is the plan foreshadowed ; ,and if
there, is ,found to .be a`fair chance of
success, it is the one which will, unques
tionably, be attempted. Whether such
a system of legislation can promise any
permanent successlo a party ; or wheth
er measures passed under such circum
stances can look for strength and suste
nance from the great body of the people,
are questions which, it will be found,
bring their own solutionlefore the lapse
of Many - months. All concede that the
vitality c of the measure is gone—that it
has no substantial foundation , in ~p ublic
sentiment, either North or South, and

We areglad to notice an address from
the pen of this stanch old Republican in
opposition to the repeal of the Missouri
Compromise. The following eitract
from this address states one objection
which wo have not seen'so forcibly done
by any other person. Says Mr. Miner :

suppose, after the apportionment follow

representation from the slave States.
They equal, save one, the repre

Delaware 1 ; Arkansas 2 ; Louisiana 4 ;
,Mississippi 5; Texas 2 ; Florida 1-15.
These six States send twelve members to
the Senate, equal to the senatorial repre

These six States, with a free popu
lation of less than half that of Pennsyl
