We have this week raised-to our mast
head the name of Col. Wuzlca Bonsai
of Clearfield county, as our choice for the
next Gubernatorial nomination—and not
only oar's; but. wribelieve also the choice
of a large majority of the Democratic par
ty in Lancaster county. In doing so we
are titillated by hostility to no other gen
tleman who has been named in connection
With the office—on the contrary, we could
sender either of them a 'host cheerful and
willing support., But, circumstances have
made Col. Bonen by far the most promi
nent as well as the'most available candi
date, and the nomination of any other at
this time would cause the heart burning":
and distrust in the minds of the people,
and again -endangerthe State and the N
ation. With this impression strong upon
our mind, and with the knowledge that he
is a sound and reliable Democrat, posses
sing talents of a high order, and in all re- ,
apects well qualified to fill the important
station with credit to himself and advan
tage to the Commonwealth—and with 'the
certainty that we are but following the
course of an almost unbroken public opin
ion throughout the State—we unfurl our
flag to the breeze, and shall keep it flying
until Col. - Bigler is elected Governor of
the Commonwealth—or until the State
Convention shall have determined upon
another candidate, a circumstance scarce
ly within the range of probability.
-In thusurowingour preference for Col..
.lumm,-ve-clo-not—thevelay-exchado. the
Mends ofether candidates from presenting
the"claints of their favorites through our
columns: Previous to a nomination by
the State Convention, every Democrat has
aright to his preference—after the nomi
nation tat:node, all ought to submit with
;lota manner, and cheerfully sustain the
_nominee of the party .. . - That the unsuc
cessful candidates wd
i do so, we have
not aparticle of doubt--and that tilt, will
labor to promote the election of their suc
cessful competitor is , nothing more than
might be expected from gentleman who
have so long enjoyed the confidence of the
party.—Lancaster Inteingencer.

From present indications, one of the
chief objections that was urged to the elec

and instead of the Judges that are to be

able men of the State, and will ford► a
Bench as powerful and as distinguished
for legal abilities as the present Bench,—
high and distinguished as they are admit

Ryan advertisement in our paper it
will be seen that Mr. Jabez Stone contem
plates running a steamboat on our river
next summer. Mr. Stone is now engaged
in building se-venal small crafts to be used
as freight-boats 'attached to the Steamer.
The experiment of a steamboat en out riV
er was tried a number of years ago, but
did not succeed, Mr. Stone has been en
gaged in running a boat on . the N. Wench

project as practicable here as there, it is
his attention to ply between-Lock Haven
and Clearfield, ,carrying passengers, store
goods, flour &c., in his upward trip and
bringing back coal, boards, &c. He Is ac
quainted with all the shoals and ripples
on the river above this place and r.l , :ards
thein as no great hinderance to his designs,
as he thinks, drat-with but little expense
they can be made passible in the driest
months in the summer. So our friends
up the river can keep a sharp look-out for
the Steamboat.—Clinton Democrat. -
NE tv HA/OVUM—TiIe result ofthe re
cent election in this State is still in doubt
as far as the legislature is concerned, but
it is certain that Dismore .the Democratic
candidate for Governor will lack several
thousand of a majority. In that case the
election of Governor will devolve on the
House, and in that view of the question the
result of the contest for members of the
Legislature becomes the more inipifitatit
and interesting. One_thing is certain, the
the regular Democrats of the Old Granite
State deserves all praise for 'the manful
manner in which they acted in the whole
affair. Utterly refusing all alliances with
free-soil, they repudiated a candidate who
would not place himself fairly on the plat
form of the Union, and with this disativanH
tage they nobly marched on to the
sr ght. i
If they have been beaten, they haVe_been
so with their colors flying, on which T was'
inscribed the great principles of the party
and upon which no traitor had ever laid
his poluted hands. Our New Hampshire
friends, have but to persevere-sit the path
of Democratic policy they have marked
out, regardless of temporary detente and,
success must attend them. She,"ttas,..keen
bred in.the Jefferson school of politics, and
is non.° be daunted at the first tire of the
enemy. Some years since a similar event
took place, which resulted in the election
of John P: Hale to the Senate. but the de
feat was a brief one, and she soon resumed
her place in the republican line._ And so
it will be now, the next election and.the
unconquerable sons of the North will
sweep the State like a torrent from their
mountain In the mean time let therm be cer
tain that the democratic party of the Un
ion look with pride and satisfaction to the
gallant struggle for principles which has
just terminated in New Hampshire.

by the skin of his teeth, were uncondition

these hitherto .Whig scare-crows,' it will
require all his lime to 'refute his fanner
position, which will render him the con

I ' HON. Geo. W. Woonwmtu.—This dis
tinguished gentleman declines being a
candidate for the Supreme Bench. In a
letter in reply , to certain ctizens of Clinton
county asking him to allow his name to be
used - in this connection, he says
•, Ido not wish to be understood as unwil
ling to make &sacrifice of personal preferen
ces for the benefit of the public, - On the
contrary, I. hesitate not to say that my rea•,
sons for declining
,judicial stations, if ten
times stonger than they are, should be
cheerfully sacrificed, if I believed it were
necessary for the attainment of any great
public good. Personal interests and dq:
• mestic consideraiions Mast, when real
necessity exits, give way to public de
tnands, But this is nut such an occasion.
There are many gentlemen more compe
tent and worthy than myself, who are wil
ling and anxious to fill the places on the
Supreme Bench, and whose circumstan
ces oppose no obstacle to their devoting
their tune and. attention to judicial labors.
Indeed, according estimation of my quali
fications for that station as compared with
those of some other men, I feel that I am

concerned, it has certainly not entitled it

paper is fortified by many strong argu•
ments, which cannot fail to weigh strongly
with the Legislature. The fact stated in
the following paragraph is known to many
of our citizens:
Had the Rank of Pennsylvania manifes
ted the same disposition to aid the State
Treasurer in his laudable efforts to pay
the interest on the funded debt in specie
funds as another institution has seve.ral
times done, some thousands of dollars paid
for discount on uncurrent funds might
have been saved to the Commonwealth.—
It is a fact that' for the last two years the
interest on our public debt has bee n
promptly met in specie funds, without a
single dollar having been paid
, for dis
count.—Pennsylvanian. $.
WILLIAM ,BIGLER.—This gentleman,
who will no doubt be the next Democratic
candidate for Governor, came -"down the
the river on a rafi" on Tuesday last. He
remained here over night—during which
time he received the grntulations of his nu
merous friends—and next morning pass

Many are the follies and weaknesses of
human nature. But none are more con
temptible than those actedout by the SCRUB
ARLSTOCRACY 'Of 'our towns and villages...-
Those are to be - found in all the relation's
of life. A young man, whine father was.
a hard working mechanic, either has a
moderate fortune left him, or he marries a
few thousand dollars—and forthwith he
puts on airs, and assumes - in iinportatice,
perfectly disgusting to those who are ac
quainted with the circumstances of his rise
and progress in the world. Such young
men regard as beneath their dignity, the
vocations of their parents. and frequently
avoid letting it be known that they sprung
from sUch sources. We have even met,
