The Committees will call meetings on Saturday,
August 30th, between •the hours of 4 and 7, P. M. for
the election of Delegates.
We would enjoin upon the Committees the respon
sibility which rests upon them, and the necessity of
diecharginutheir duty faithfully and fully. The
primary meeting should be called on the day imb
ed, at the usual, place for holding said meetings-or
at some place most convenient to the democrats of
district. -Great care should be taken that every
democrat has notice or the Delegate meeting, that
all may have a chance of attending:
The Standing Committee have remarked that the
Conventions to elect delegates to the State conven-
tion which have been held for theltilit two or three
years at February Court, have been of but little in
terest to the Democrats of the County, and havd
been but thinly attended. In view of this, and of
the fact ,that the next State; Convention is called on
the 4th of March, they have deemed it best to sug.
gest to the Democrat..r• of the, County. tbepropriety
of`electing Delegates to the Stale Convent ionat - the
COunty Convention which they have now called;
and they hereby authorise and empower the Con
vention to elect said Delegates to the State Conven
tion, if the Convention shall judge said accuse prop
er and seasonable. .
The Democrameif the County are requested to
take the matter into consideration, so their Delegates
may be able to represent the wishes and feelings of
the great hody of the party.

-In this paper will be found the call for the usual
September County Convention and the list of dn-
Mitteei of Vigilance - appointed by the Democratic
Standing Committee. The importance of the ap.
preaching itlection should make the Committees
more than usually careful in discharging their dn.
ties. They should post np in conspicuous places
notices of the tinvirand place of meeting, and should
personally urge upon Demoerats.the importance of
attending the primary meetings. They should also
attend the meeting themselves, see it properly or
ganieed, and that it is tidily conducted. No little re•
spotbibility rests upon them, and we tuustthtsy will
faithfully discharge it.
The County Conventions which have 'usually
Ateen called in the spring, hive been_sbutdeniante
upon the patty, and strenuous exertions have tailed

The prospect for the seeress of- the ‘ democratic
party in Pertqaylvania, s4s the no ne, was never
more encouraging than at present. From every
pan of die State we hear the same report, that `the
democracy are awake to the importance of the
contest and the — necessity of exertion, did Ampered
to give their best efforts for the election of all can
didates. For Digler and Clover the only question
appears to be as to the number of their majority--
There are but few, even of the whip, who serious
ly calculate on -she election of Johuton and Strithin.
The diameter of the termer' has at-last' developed
itself, and he stands before his worshippers much
in the position ol the . unveiled prophet. The dela
sion which led them to imagine that there was a
statesman before them, has vanished, and they be
hold, what party prejudice atone preiented them
frsm beholdimt, a political demagogue. The course
pursued by Grey. Johnston and hiS friends to render
his &eetion secure, by taking both sides of the ex
citing questions of the day and thus endeavoling to
secure the votes ol both parties, has signally failed,
and is about to- be signally rebuked.
Of the manner in which this trickery has been
received out of 'Pennsylvania, without distinc
tion of party, we published abundant evidence in
our last paper; that it is received in the same =sn
eer by the honest, intelligent portion of the party
at home, it ss only necessary to mingle and con
verse with the masses of the people to ascertain.
This state of facts' must necessarily dispirit the
Whig party and weaken their exertions; they can
not zealously labor to promote the election of a
man 'whose success wouhl be hailed as a triumph
by the enemies of equal rights; they wilt not exert
themselves for the overthrow oldie measures they
approve, the principles they advocate. On the other
hand, the democracy, conscious at once of the cor
rectness of their principles, the importance of their
measures, the identity,of their candidates with those
'meanness and principles, and ol their principles and
measures with the general . good of the whole coun
try, an imated.not merely by the prospect of soceeis,
but by the magnitude of the 'interest involved in
that success, and the necessity of redeeming the
State from Mug misrule and m isrepresentation, find
themselves stronger as the contest thickens, and
animated by one spirit, move on as.one man to a
common and glorious victory.

JOHNSTON ON TOE PARDONING POWER —The 18-
ton Argus, in along and able editorial upon t is
subject, gives a few instrnees in which Governor
Johnston has exercised the pardoning power in that
i cocnty. It Johnston has not pardoned, which we
very mach question, as many convicts as some of
the Executives that have preceeded him, all must
admit that his subjects have been for offenees of the
very worst character. The editor says : -
How does Governor Johnson stand .nin'si this
question ? lie has pardoned out of the Pennentia.
ry more than half of the convicts sent-from this
county, expeptinrithose that have been sent within
the last six months. And among thole pardoned
are Sterner, who was convicted of rape upon a child
II years of age, and sentenced to 6 years and 6
months ; Craven for the killing of Zink, sentenced
to 4 years; Mills, /Or the shooting with intent lb
kid, and the wounding of Buss, sentenced to 2 years
and 6 months ; Smith, convicted of perjury in false
ly and maliciously charging the crime of adultery
upon one of the most respectable citizens, together
with several others who were convicted of larceny
and the like °knees. What motive can demand
such an exercise of Executive power l Can it be
possible that money has been employed. for these
purposes . , or is it!toseeure votes? Surely jostieedoes
not require this, bet bleeds under thi operation. In
our opinion, the only excuse that can be given, is,
that the Goveruor is so lender-hearted he cannot
beat that these poor fellows shouted bo compelled
to suffer out their time as keit by law. •1 Ms is
the constractien given by the Constitution ; the one
prevents acts passed by the Legislature from be
coming the law; the other prevents the execution
of the law by interposing a pardon. We-leave the
people to judge which is the worst ui the two.

course weshould pursue in rek.retrie to that gen

the foundation, and show his political and public
acts as we nurletstand them, influenced by no sin
ister or unkind personal motive. II we have not
done so thus far,it is because we lack ability ; and
in the future we have only to crave our reader's
generous indulgence, and ask that they will keep
in mind the subject from week to week, as we in
tend the articles to form a continual series, 'each
having more or less reference to the preceding
The last one we shall give to our readers the 21st
of October next, announcing the defeat of the Judge
by the largest niajority polled, conclailine - with a
general review , of the causes that produced it.
',four last issue we showed I from, the evidence
of the Judge himself, his connection with the "Sur.
pins stock 'Company," which was really the ground
work oldie wholesale fraud and plunder, that was
visited, open Otis generous and unsuspecting com
munity by the-failure. We say it was the ground
work bqause there vratrthe starting of the institu
tion, and there was where the Judge interposed,
raising a voice sovereign to the law, and by the
most . unheard of calculating and designing intrigues,
thwarted the purposes of the Vegislature in granting
the Act of Incorporation, trampled upon law and
honesty, outraged the confidence of a confiding pub
lic ;atril with the law of incorporation in one hand,-
the " Current Bank Note" Resolution, Towanda
money, and Stock Notes in the other, launched his
bark and staked his reputation as a Bank Financier.
We not only showed that he was connected with
that Stock Company at the outset, but that hakes"
a prominent member of it while it existed: and that
it was in his name---" Win. Jessup & Co.,"—when
its final and original lawless purpose was avant
plished,—when that which " was conceived in sin
was brought forth in iniquity . ,—by, the cancelktion
of those notes at the Bank, without one farthing
ever having been paid thereon ! Arid further too,
we showed that Wm. Jessup.was the man by whose
influence others were induced to sanction they
knew not what ; that he originated and consumma
ted by his artintnesss, activity, and - elmplence the
dark dyed plot, that first revealed itself to the gaze
of an unsuspecting people. when too' late to shun
the vortex that enguiphed their homes,' their prop
erty, their sustenance ; burying the product of days,
and weeks, and years of hard and anxious toil, in a
grave as relentless as that which holds the loath
some dead; anti then, with a coolness both provo
king and insulting calmly replies through his or
~T hen eons' not say that I thd it:,
Yes, we can and eilt say "that I did it," and so
'will a robbed community. We eharge home epee
Judge Jessup the authorship of this high-handed
outrageupon the property and rights and confi
dence of his fellow-citizens ; and when we make
the charge, ere say that his own testimony, before
the Committee of Investigaticur, is alone sufficient
to substantiate it; and all the efforts of hireling
presses, from this till the day ef deem. cannot weak
en its force, divert public attention • from the facts,
or create a morbid sympathyl be the, beggarly cry
of persecution. ~ Who does net recollect. the scenes
that were everyday presiintgil, in this goodly town
of Montrose, immediately subsequent to the failure
of the Bank ? Who that bad a heart to feel for the
misfortunes cif others, that did not feel it rung with
in him, when the tears, the entreaties, the supplies
tions, alike of widows and orphans, the fartherless
and friendless, the husband and mother, the poo
and the affluent, from whose grasp the last depen
dence was snatched by the merciless hand of this
Bank tweeter, which was breathed into existence
and nu-sed into manhood by the power and influ
ence of Judge Jessup --wis ask, who that saw all
.these thsre.earded, an d the tuthor of the calamity
indifferently rolling in dignity, that' did not feel in
his very soul even more vengeance than language
can express or emotion betray ? W 6 are accused
of being influenced by "petty malice" in this mat

charge. ,_We have no mainly to gratify save the
malice that rankles in the breast of essay man,
when to a genteel plundering of his pocket, is ad
ded a wholesale robbery of whole ,confmunities ;
and still to that, a cool, provoking insolence that
