Democratic State Convention meets

t0 place on record a prediction, which is—-that
tbat body will endorse BUCHANAN ami Lecoinp

delegates from Bradford will support such en

single man in this County, belonging to that

RErrm.ic.vN CONVENTION. —A convention of
representing the city of Philadelphia
and "many of the counties of this Common
wealth, assembled at nerr's Hotel, Ilarrisburg
on Monday the 22d ult.
The Convention was organized by appoint
ing JOHN ADAMS FISHF.R, Esq., of Dauphin
countv, as Chairman, and GEORGE S. KING,
Esq., "of Cambria county, as Secretary.
After such organization, and a full and free
interchange of opinions among the delegates,
the following preamble aud resolutions were
introduced, read, fully discussed, adopt
ed and ordered to be published :
WHEREAS, It is desirable that all those op
posed to the misrule of the National Adminis
tration, and especially to its otrocions attempt
to force Slavery upon Kansas against the will
of the people, should unite at the ensuing elec
tion on the State and County tickets, without
regard to the mode or form of effecting said
Iles'lred, That the State Committee, of
which Lemuel Todd, Esq., is Chairman, be re
quested to call a Convention of all those wil
ling to unite to effect the above object, to be
lipid at Ilarrisburg on some day not earlier
than the first of July next.
Resolved, That such call should distinctly
state that, in thus inviting, no individual or
party is expected to sacrifice any priuciple,
nor to approve of any principle of those with
whotn he acts, saving only earnest and practi
calhostility to peJiltcal despotism and the. exten
sion of human slattry over the free territories
of this Republic.
ATTEMPT UPON THE LIFE OF THE
FRENCH EMPEP.OR is still a subject of conside
rable discussion in the French Journals. It
i said that one of the prisoners has confessed
that the conspirators are five hundred in num
ber, and are bound by oath to assassinate the
Emperor. Each year, or oftener, if cirenm
cances will waarxut the attempt, the whole
band are to draw lots from a box in which
there will be five winning numbers. The mem
bers drawing these are held to put in immedi
ate execution an attempt upon the Emperor's
life which shall be approved by the whole so
ciety, and by those who are charged with its
execution. If this report be true, the police
will have plenty to do to maintain their repu
tation. The Emperor was so disgusted with
them ou account of their remissness in not ar
resting the conspirators, that he said they were
the " worst police in the world." It is a sin
gular fact, that the assassin Orsioi aud his in
tended victim, Napoleon 111., were in 1831
brother members of a society called Carbonari,
which held its meetings at Forli, in the Ro
man States, where the eldest son of the King
of Holland died. And subsequently, in 1.848,
it seems that Louis Napoleon, as member of a
republican society in Fraucc, took an oath to
exterminate whoever should subvert the liber
ties of the republic !
Hoy RORFRT J. WALKER. —The Evening
Bulletin of Wednesday has an editorial alleg
ing that Governor WALKER has ceased his op
position to the Leeompton fraud, and suggest
ing certain motives. We have no authority
to speak for Mr. WALKF.R, but, our life for it,
in proper time and fitting place, MR. WALKF.R
will speak for himself. His character, and his
high jiositiori as a champion of right, already
speak for him, and say that it is a moral im
possibility that he will—we do not say desert
his colors, but lower them for a moment. We
are ashamed to say thus much, but fear onr
entire silence may be misconstrued.—l'hiladel
SsT A dispatch from Ilarrisburg says that
Governor Packer has pardoned Monroe Stew
art. who was to have been executed ou next
I riday. It will be remembered that Charlotte
Jones and Ilenry Fife —executed about ten
days ago, for a murder of which Stewart stood
couvicted as an accomplice—in their confes
sions both in prison and upon the gallows,
solemnly declared that Stewart had no parti
cipation in the crime. The Pittsburg Enion
and other journals of that city have, since the
execution of Fife and Charlotte Jones, declar
ed a strong belief that there is room to doubt
his guilt and that the Governor should inter
fere to prevent his execntion.
BANK OF PENNSYLVANIA. —The assignees of 1
this bank are Messrs. Patterson, Thompson
and Taylor. The assignment was made on the
1tli inst., and was approved by Judge Thomp
son and Allison.
The domestic attachment against the prop
erty of Thomas Alfihoue, has been dissolved—
he having made an assignment of all his real
f-'ate in Pennsylvania, and certain personal
property, for the purpose of securing any debts
and liabilities which may be established against
him on account of his connection with the
Bank as its principal officer.

More Developments of Eleotion Frauds
ST. LOUIS, Thursday, Feb 25,1858.
The Leavenworth Times says that the Judg
es and Clerks of the Election at Shawnee have
been arrested, and that they testify under oath
before the Investigating Committee that the
poll-book of Shawnee was taken to Westport,
and three hundred names added thereto in that
place. J. J. CLARKSON, Post-master at Leav
enworth, was burned in effigy on the 15th inst.,
and threats were made to hang him, if caught.
Correspondence of the Cincinatti Gazette.
LAWRENCE, Kansas, Monday, Feb. 15.
The Investigating Commission for Investiga
tion of election frauds, sat through the whole
of Saturday night Dr. SABIN, of Brownville,
Kansas, a reliable gentleman, was one of the
witnesses examined. He testified that about
two weeks before the 4th of January he was
in the "V irgrnia Hotel, Jefferson City, Mo., and
there overheard a conversation between Gov
ernor STEWART, of Missouri, and FRANK MAR
SHALL, of Kansas. STEWART assured MARSHALL
that arrangements had been perfected by which
several hundred voters were to be sent over
into the border precincts to participate in the
election He gave him the full details of the
localities and numbers.
The Sergeant-at-Arms of the Commission
had just returned from Johnson County with
four persons who were implicated directly or
indirectly, in the enormous frauds of the 4th
of January election.
Shawnee Precinct, as you will remember, re
turned over nine hundred (900) votes. C. C
GODFRAY, one of the Clerks of Election there,
was examined under oath. After some hesi
tation, he fiually gave a full history of the af
He swore that there were about one hun
dred and sixty-three honest votes polled. The
polls closed at 9 o'clock P. M. Early the next
morning he and the other Clerk went over to
Westport, Mo., and there, in Colonel BOON'S
, store, added several hundred names to those of
the bona fide voters. The names were read to
them from some list, by a son of llev. " TOM
JOHNSON," and other Pro-Slavery men. The
Judges' certificates (which had been made out
on separate sheets of paper) were pasted on
! at the foot of these bogus returns, and they
| were then sent to CALHOUN. Colonel DAN-
J FORTH, of Westport, (who is known to have
J acted under instructions from CALHOCN, and
who is also connected with the frauds in the
other precincts,) was the instigator and direc
tor of the swindle.
The Judges corroborate this testimony fully,
and swore that several hundred names had been
added to the returns, after the polls were clos
ed and they had made out their certificates.
As these witnesses gave their testimony un
der the direct promise that they should be pro
tected back to their homes, they were sent
back quietly, early yesterday morning. They
will, of course, flee to Missouri.
The Spring Hill returns showed a Free
State majority. The Pro-Slavery messenger
by whom they were to be sent in, never deliv
ered them, and now swears that he lost them
on the way. CRAYON.
fifeg- The Kansas election frauds, it seems,
were not confined to Delaware Crossings.—
The Committee of Investigation appointed by
the Territorial Legislature, has ascertained 1
that the poll book of Shawnee, also, was taken
over into Westport, and 300 names added to
the list in that place. General CALHOCN, if
he was sincere in the declaration of his pur
pose to act fairly and honestly in the matter,
will be obliged to revise the returns from near
ly every part of the Territory. This Investi
gating Committee was appointed by the Terri
torial Legislature, in which the rejection of
the Oxford County returns by Messrs WALKER
and STANTON gave the Free State men a ma
jority. It has no legal authority to decide
who are and who are not legal members of the
State Legislature, but it can and does expose
to the public the frauds by which the elections
in nearly every part of the Territory seem to
have been distinguished.
A MISTAKE. —The Illinois State Register
calls the Philadelphia Press " the leading and
most influential Democratic journal in Penn
sylvania." The only mistake is that the Press
is not a Democratic journal at all. It has
long since abandoned that party, and is now
recognized bv the Black Republicans as their
organ in the old Keystone State. We have
no objections to the Register calling the Press
a " leading and influential journal," but then
give it a proper location in the ranks of the
Black Republicans—that's all.—Pennsylra
MR. PRENTICE ON KEITT. —The Louisville
Journal gets off the annexed commentary on
the fight in Congress :
We see a good many comments in the pa
pers upon the affair in the House of Repre
sentatives, in which Mr. Keitt figured, and was
figured with so strikingly. Mr. Keitt certain
ly had the floor upon the occasion, and the floor
had him, and the two were unmistukeably en
titled to each other. There seems, however,
to be some little dispute as to whether Keitt
fell by stubbing his toe or was knocked down
by an enemy or pulled down by a friend.
One statement, apparently true, is that Keitt
disappeared immediately after rising from the
floor. Mr. Grow gained some eclat in the af
fair, and Keitt lost. Grow grew, and Keitt
Keitt grasped grow by the the throat. lie
is not the first individual that has had a down
fall from being too grasping.
teST Horrible developments are expected to
be brought to light with reference to the burn
ing of the Pacific Hotel at St. Louis. Yes-1
terday a man named CHARLES L. TAYLOR, oth
erwise known as SANDERS, was arrested for*'/-
lingfire to the hotel, after murdering Ephnaim
Doanc, one of the inmates. The landlord, Dr.
STRADER, and CHARLES WALDKOI, a watchman,
have also been arrested, though tlie nature of j
the charges against them is wot stated in the
telegraph dispatch. The examination of the
arrested j>erson3 wiff tuke place to-day.
T&R KF.ITT says if he was struck he was UN- j
conscious of it. It is understood he was 9tu- i
dying astronomy at the time, and counting the
stars that studded the firmament—several of
which were of the first magnitude, immediate
ly after Grow's fist was introduced under his
ear.— Chicago Tribune.
BUNTING.— A full suit of American flags are
waving from the St. Nicholas Hotel to day.—
The goilded rooster, too, that 6uraoant6 the
bouse, gleams particularly bright in the moro
