A GRAND FIZZLE.
Tho 'Hogus Convention," or rather tho
amclaveof muloontentii which infoKt the
Domooratio party just now, undeserving
.he name of Convention, even with the
prefix of Logua, which met at llurrisburg
List Wodnc8day, tiroved most unexpect
edly to its projectors, a humiliating
failure a couiploto fizzle. Not even large
enough to furnibh Forney and his coadju

utropaniocbhin in their misery. And
oven somo of those who we e present for
(he purpoBO of participating in the prococ
ilings becamo so much disgusted villi
their company that they withdrew and
repudiated their connexion with thiH
crow of disorganizes. Ono of them, Mr.

We have heretofore refrained from al

ing it prudent to await the rosult of the
'great Convention" which was to be, but
did not take place thai is, the great part
of it at llarrisburg last Wednesday ; ns it
bad been charged that one of them be
cause of his anti-Lecompton views, would
not accept the Democratic nomination,
but would act with tho Forneyites. This
w were not willing to believe of as up
right a man as John Rowe, of Franklin,
but we awaited with the expectation, in
Which we have not been disappointed'
that Mr. Rowe would lay bis viows .before
the public at an curly date, and thus leave
no doubt about bis position. A well known
anti-Lecompton Democrat, tho Conven
tion, having full confidence in his ability
and integrity, did not Hesitate lo nomi'
nato him, thus showing that that was no
longer a living issuo in tho Democratic
party. And it is only the treason of as
piring bad men, which continually drags
it into remembrance. It will yet prove
tho incubus to strangle thoir political ex

Aran. 8th, 18.59.
Mr. KniTnn: Sir: It is customary, we
believo, for those who wish, to announce,
about this time, the names of their favor
ite candidates for Governor. I think it
very noccssary that the people bo made
acquainted with tho name and character
of every person brought beforo them for
their lonsulcratiou, and 1 write thus e.iny
to allbrd amnio titno for the purpose. The
party will, doubtless, next time, bo more
particular than they havo lately been in
their celeclion of a candidate, and will at
least, endeavor to rest llieir choico upon
an houc-t and able man and a Democrat,
alui one jy whom they will no, bo betray

a mn, and mch a Democrat, havo wo in
Ifou. James Macmani's, of liellofonte, Cen
tre county. This gcntli'tnan is widely
known as an r.bloaud faithful practitioner
of law, and as an eminent legislator. In
tho hitter capacity ho has very few equals,
jud no superiors in any o(uarter of the
State. To this fact Ceutro county can
well testify, as she has several times been
very ally represented by him at the State 1
Ci'pitol. (ilten ilul the wings men rep
ruientins their constituencies, feel the'.
force of hi3 logic, and the effect of his cut
ting sarcasm. As to his course as a Demo
crat, every one who is acquainted with it
know ? it to have been always consistent,
always straight forward, always honest;
and with his high qualifications for the
position of Governor of the old Keystone
State, wo recommend him to the favora
ble consideration of all truo Democrats.

contributing among oilier causes to our
temporary defeat in this Slate, and the
consequent ephemeral popular siipremney
of tho two combined opposition factions,
now seeking to obtain tho possession of
the Government, not by virtue of any
plan of sound statesmanship, or by main
taining correct principles, but by means
of tho clamorous assaults of mere numbers
attracted together by lawless excitements,

senting a defined number cf voters free to
act and choose for themselves, in tho un
controlled expression of all shades of opin

Convention, wero pa-scd uiilwid one diw,l-

murmur of disapproval in relation to then,,
uttered by a single Delegate wbos.it in tho
Convention. Richardson L. right, the
nominee for the office of Auditor-General

for the office of Surveyor-' lonoral of the

In fine wo can aver

there was not ore vote taken by the Con
