His election was analagons .in its consequences
and results to the late Presidential contest. ;The
Convention which gave him the unanimous nomi

these • odds, Gov, Bmuaaa arrayed himself, and la
bored zealously and personally until he had achiev

debted only to his own exertions. His frank,
manly and eloquent addresses no the people, his
plain and forcible illnsitteions of State policy, vin

Gov. BIGLER, upon his election, wart beset, by the
same influences which are not at work upon Gen.
Plkacr.. Plane were laid, and schemes concocted,
by cations cliques, to get him into por.session, to
control his action, and dictate his appointments.—
Like Geu., PIERCE, he shook them all off, and re

union and•harmonious action were at once restored
to that party, and though some who may have had
" intentions" upon him, were disposed to growl,
they wete awed by the universal expression of ap
proval which went up tram the people.
In connection with the Cabinet of Gen. PIERCE is
also mentioned the name of Gsonce W. Woon
wAan. Pennsylvania does not boast of an abler
man than Mr. W., and should the President-con
fer upon him a seat in his Cabinet, ho would meet
with the approbation of our citizens. Mr. W. is all
that cou'd be desired in a Cabinet officer. Endow
ed with abilities which are unquestioned, his atten
tion would be directed to the welfare of the coin•
try and the character ,and credit of the Administra
lion. Modest and unassuming in his nature, his
own advancement would form nn part of hiv study.

• There are some score of gentlemen nnrned as
competent to fill places in the Cabinet, many - ol
whom are thus poi forward with no:expectation of
being so honored s but to give them a prominence
and influence with the Administration. From all
theve.Gen. PIERCE will have no difficulty in com

The Philadelphia Bulletin, which assumes Iscor
reut the moral and political conduct of most the en•
tire world, is down upon Gov. Bicr.ea, for pardon
iug iNfr. George ltlslater. The Argus, which is glad
to echo anything in dasparag.emerit of a Democratic
Governor, publishes a lalse and perverted:statement
cf the case, and is horror-struck that the Governor
should exercise the pardoning power, forgetting the
frequent use made of it by Gov. Johnston.
The following remarks upon this case; are kraut

drift by the Governor of Mr. George E•her',' win)
was sentenced to a week's imprisonment for assault
and battery on the election ground, and was releast
by the'Governor after serving half the`time he was
sentenced'. We are opposed to arty abtise of the
pardoning power, and think that an interpositiOn by
the Govern-or between the offender and his pernish
men!, where it tends to impair public insiiee, can
not be 'on severely reprobated. Dm, on the 'other
hand, the Constitution makes it his duty to inter
fere when he believes that courts have acted np
prosively or vv;th prejudice against a cidzen. Lr
C3 , C of Mr. E-her, Al cannot see how the ends
of justice afe delettieJ by the Governor's paidon.—
It is not customary in our cminty courts to punish
mere assaults and batteries with imprisonment
The practice has been me reverse, and in a very
recent case, since Mr. Esher's sentence, where die
assault was gross and r reined.taied,lhe offender es
etiped with a fine only There was no such aggra
vation in .111 s. Esher's case, which called -specially
for an example to offentlod jostice, or warranted
any departure from the usual practice of-the court
to make one of it. These Was-no premeditation in
the assault; it-was the result- Dia momentary ex•
eitement merely, and Ilia best ittstifiention of the
pardon granted by the Governor is found in the sub
segnent faels,.es given by the Governor himself in
his reasons tor granting it.
" Mr E.her was hound guilty of having commit
tistfan assanlt and battery, wherettport the Judge

inept, and anxious to exempt associated capital
from contributing its•fair proportion:
The advneatesof a reduction irf tha tarifT,lo the
lowest possible revenue standard, will find in Mr.
Gribw - a zealous ea laborer. The immense suip!os
in 'what - Treasury seems to indicate that the
Re4etimit laws need some - modification ; and when
iris done, we trust The effect will be to reduce the
tax imposed upon the' industry of the country, by
cheapening the necessaries of lite, anti not by such
a monstrous propos:tion as that which benefits Only
capital or the country.
I am not opposed to reduction of duties on railroad
iron from any consideration of protection to any in
terest of the country- I have always yaderstood
that the object of the imposition of duties on imports
was to raise reveitue'for the support of Government
and while the tariff is the only tax law that the
Genetal Government now has. justiecto all interests
require that the duties should be imposed its such a
way as to raise the greatest amount of revenue. For
being a tax on imported articles consumed in the
country, and not upon property, the only 'way you
can reach the wealth of the nation, and Mate it pay
its proportion of taxation, or anything towards
to imp. se your heaviest duty on articles consumed
mostly by the richer portion of von p potation.—
What justice is there then in exempting from taxation
one article of your import', when, as was well said
by the gentleman from Tennessee,Dlr.Josss,) that
article is used by corporations alone! What justice
is them in exempting from taxation the associated
capital of the country invested in railroad enterpris
es, while you tax the mechanic en his saw and ham
mer, the farmer on his chains and plow, and the
day-laborer on his spade, axe, and hoe ! What is
it, sir, but another form of class proles:tient, Some
gentlemen who are: violent opposers of protection
to any interest or class, are stiersooos advocates of
Where is the difference in granting legislative
favors to a class of men engaged in manufacturing,
or another class ea2,aged in railroad speculations I
For in kith cases men invest their money in the
hopes of gain. The dividends and the percentage
are the inducements, and let them both be treated
alike Ly your laws—giving boonties •to neither.—
While the'reveaue of the Government is collected
by imposirs, let every a , tick imported pay its pro
per share of tax, unless it bean article of necessary
and universal consumption. - Bat railvmal non is
not,such an article,- and justice us the taxpayer de
mands that it should contribute its share to the rev
enue. Why shou'd the labwer of - the country be
taxed on salt, sugar, and other indispensable neces.
saries of life, and at the same time exempt the men
who have invested and associated their capital in
railroad projects I Besides, while collecting reven
ue, you are•bound by every consideration to do as
little injury as possible to any and all inlet este that
have grown up under the laws or On the faith of the
Government. Repeal the duties on railroad iron.
and you strike a deadly blow at the iron interests of
the country ; for the manufacture of milt-cad bar is
one. of the greatest means of consuming pig iron.
And besides, the railroad bar imported, after it be
comes worn, can he taken up and worked over, so
is to answer many purpose. for which iron is used.
By a repeal of this duty, then, you slrike down an
interest that you called mto exta ence solely by your
legislation in '8 , 12. Is :t necessary to d , r it from sty
consideration of reren 'lf so; that inte rest, like
any other, must submit to it. Fur the objr ct in im
posing any . duty being to raise revenue, and the man
ufa•-turer having the benefit of whatever protection
arses from that amount whenever it becomes ne.
cessary, therefore. to change the duty in order to
meet the watts of the Government, whatever mitt ry
may result to him is one of the necessary con-e
-quences of this mode of collertion. But in this ease
ther. is no :such necessity % for by a repeal of this
duty you destroy revenue.
Anilthus vou would permit a large amount of iron
to come into the country, to be used by various in
terests, tinder the disguise of benefiting corpora.
ileitis; and without raising an'iota of revenue, You
ruin one important interest of the nation. . 8111. sir;
I. raise no voice here for protection; nor do I rep.
resent constituents who desire to trammel the trade
of nations. They are 'ready to meet the gentleman
prom Ohio. (Mr. Ca wrreart). or gentlemen from any
section of the Union, to onfetter commerce and strike
off forever its shackles. But they ask that it shall
be done with justice and fairness to the tax-payee
and to all the great interests of tke country.
The question was taken upon Mr. F 's
amendment, and was rejected.
