DEATH "OF GOV. SHUNK.
A Commonwealth mahms her proudest States

Gov. FRANCIS R. iSHCNN, is no more, By a slip from
the Union office we learn his decease.

deal has deprived us of one °tour racisramifille,
accomplished and philanthropic citizens, and the
-State of the an . Executive whore rare finalities of
head and heart have scarcely even been fully appre
ciated. GOV tfitiOß • SuerNu; departed this life on
Thursday evening July 201 h, about seven o'clock,
without a stra g gle. He .died as be lived, serene
nod calm, and with the full possession of his men
lid faculties up to'the last moment of his existence.
Fat' some time past he t has been preparing for
" the end °Leonia," and thigrim messenger of death
brought with him no terrors for this great and good
man. Gov. Shenk has long served the people iu
many public stations; and when deprived' of the
strength necessary to give his personal attention to
the arduous duties of his officeis, he consulted what
he regarded to be the beet interests of his constitnents
by surrendering into their hands the trust reposed
in him, so that a successor might be elected at the'
earliest •period permitted, by the Constitution. This
act Was one of transcendent patriotism . ; and the
prayer accompanying, it , g that peace, virtue, intelli
gence end religion may preVade all our borders,"
is in sublime harmony, with his whole official life.
The remains of Gov. Shenk, by his owe request
will be ccMveyed to-morrow to the Trappe in Mont
gomery . county, where they will be interred by
the side of his ancestors."

We have never, for a moment, hesitated, as to
the . colirse, which, in our opinion, it was the duty
of Mr. Wilmot to adopt. Ws are surprised that a
duty so plain, should be otherwise understood by
any—especially those professing to be his friends:
no man is truly the friend of Mr. Wilmot, who
would have him bazaid his sincerity and integrity.
The people' expect, ana demand, that be stand
firmly by them is this aids. Politicians demand,
that he should be craven-hearted; that for the sake
of one man, he should be a trailer to , the people ;
that heshould abandon therGreat Principle for which
he has labored; that he should.
The name of Wilmot is indissolubly associated
with the great Fate Son. movement. He was the
first to raise the standard; he will never desert it—
if it must go down, he will fall with it. Shall be
tam Recreant now; that one of the greatest states.•
men of the country consents to become the standard
bearer of his principles! Who asks it of him?—
Some at least, who would be the first to assail his
integrity, and who are eager for the opportunity.—
Southern statesmen may demand and insist in the
right to extend slavery, aid require a positive
pledge in the nominee for the Pnatidericy to that
effect, as indispensable but a Northern statesman
who attempts.to set its to slavery, and bring the
government to stand on the platfotin where stood

We approved the course of Mr. Wilmot, on the
Slavery question, from the time the measure was.
first proposed by him. With scarcely a dissenting
voice, he r is sustained by the Democratic conven
tion of this county ; we believe, also, that eight.
tenths of the Democracy of this district agree with
him on thisottestion ; yet there are those who think
it the duty of Mr. Wilmot to abandon this great
measure, and that we should drop the subject in
this paper. Suange, , indeed ! These -very men
applaud the speeches and articles in favor of the
Extension of slavery, which appear in Democratic
papers--all this is very well, but we, who are op
posed to its extension, must be muzzled. If, it is
wished, that this subject should not be agitated,,
why is it, that so rainy of, the Democratic papers
of this State, hare in every number, something to
say against it ? Is it expected, under such circum

our obligations to Country :

We have protracted this article alreadyto a grea
ter length than was intended. Our object was to
state the true position of Mr. !Wilmot, and to show
that be had, and would continue to preserve his in
tegrity upon the Slivery question, as he hid- on all
others, and that whatever may be the choice alibis
District for President, the Democracy expect of
him, that he will be faithful to the cause with which
his reputation is inseparably connected.
We have published in this piper a letter from
Mr. Wilmot, written in answer to an invitation to
attends meetingof the Radical Democracy in New
Tork City. , , It is a faithful and clear exposition of
his views ; and Is etitainly written with much 'abi

where its chief force was felt, there was a general
demolition of awnings, wit the gardens are 'entire

worms had dripped them of their leaves. The
storm was about a mile in width, extending north
and south of the village, and , came from the west.
The Lumens who chanced to be within its track
have suffered severe losses. Several fine fields of
cam and oats which we have seen, are almost com
pletely mined. How far it came, or went, on its
awful and' destrudive course we have not learned.

GttL Lorr.—We learn by a gentleman from Sul
liven county, that no additional traces have yet been
discovered of the daughter of Mr. Williams who
lost her way tensing from Laporte, the county seat,
t o her father's residence Am weeks since, to-day.—
Dili g ment search has been made by the neighbors;
up to this time, but in rain. The circumstances
connected with this sad occurrence we learn from
the Blaney Luminary:—Mr. Williams had moved
but two drys previous to that time, to a new build
ing erected in the woods a abort distance from the
clearing for the town of Laporte. Be has access
to the road and the clearing only by a narrow path.
The little girl had gone to Laporte on an errand,
and on returning home became bewildered, and
instead of taking the 'path that leads td her father's
residence proceeded up the toad several hundred
yards and then entered the wilderness. The most
dilligent search has been made for her by large bo
dies of men who went from the settlement, and the
only traces that have been found of her so far as we
have learned, are that her bonnet was found in the
road near the place where she must have entered
the wilderness, and that a place was found where
the had made a play house with sprigs and
leaves, and a nest made of boughs where it was
supposed she laid -the first night she was out. She
now has been gone more than two weeks, and as
the wilderness extends for many miles in length
and breadth, it is reasonable to suppose that she has
either been destroyed by some animal, or died from
fatigue and hunger ere this, and from what we have
beard of the nature of the wilderness (being grown
up with the most dense thicket) we doubt whether
any discovery will ever be made of her body.

For Mr. Van Buren, I entertain profound respect
and admiration. I have ever regarded him, as an
esample of republican integrity and virtue, and in
my estimation be stands first, among the firing
statesmen of America.
The friends of free soil and free labor, were an:
ions to remove this territorial question, from our
National party strifes ; and to confine it to the se
veral Congressional district& We did not ask the
interference of the Executive in our behalf. We
demanded no pledges. We would cheerfully have
united in the support of any sound republican, who
would have left this question, to the unbiamul ac
tion of the people's representatives. Out southern
brethren refused to meet us, upon Ibis ground of
conciliation. No respect was paid to our feelings
or our wishes. We were.required to surrender our
cherished principles—to do violence to our solenin.
conviction's. The of the South declared
as one man, that they won support no candidate
for the Presidency, unless be was pledged to veto
any law of Congress, securing our territories, against
the encroachments and aggressions of slavery._
The pledge was given and we are now called up
on to support the candidate thus stultified If we
do so, we give the most solemn endorsement to
principles we abhor. The ties of party have been
severed by the South. The issue has been forted nip
on us, we must meet it. There is no escape from
the duties and the responsibilities that press upon
us. For; the consequences, we are in no respect
responsible They rest upon those, who have left
us no alternative, but to meet the question, or aban

county, and Congressional district, may take in the

power, and I trust in God, they have the moral
courage, to rescuells noble Commonwealth 'of

the injuries we complain of amdthe expenses of the
war. I have also attempted to show that, should it
be neceisary, we may rightfully, and without any
great danger, looking to an overriding thoridence,

occupy this country. And I have no doubt-4 ex-
F prim the opinion here—that every foot of territory

"Mr. Wood, of New York, hero intereosed, and
protested against the gentlemao answenng either
for the north or for God.

km is written in his revealed word. I can speak
['authoritatively- upon that point."
1 The policy contemplated by the slavebolders is
revealed in this passage. it is the policy-of «Intim.
[nal extension of slavery—new accessions of tern
tory to which it is to be transplanted —new markets
for slaves—an indefinite sold constant enlargement
[of the area of human boudage—while the free la
'borers of the United States and the emigrants from
Europe are to be accumulated within the fixed lim
its of the northern portion of the 113nion.
Adopt but the Bright Compromise and this result
I summarily follows. The populi.tion of Texas as it
increases, will spread itself rnto. oda and Chi
huahua, where planters with th r gangs of slaves
will seek a fresher soil and er plantations, and
the blacks of Southern Californi will be taken by
, their masters to the vast uninha ." Attests of Sonora.
Theprovision not only. for the t, but for the
future extension of slavery, for Centuries to come,
in this comprehensive arrangement, will he of the
most ample kind. and will keep alive the institution
to theremotest limit of its possible existence.
