The Senate Question.
.. ,
During the two Weeks breathing spell_ that
our Legislators at Harrisburg are taking, on
the Senator question, it -may be useful for
them to hear froin ' : the " rural distriets. 4 ' Do
they want to kneSai ; what the people think?—
We' give it as Our; firm belief that_there are
not half.a dozen rnen in Susquehanna county,
of any. party, who ',are really in favor of Si
mon Cameron.:. And to judge ,from the tone
Of the public press) the same views appear, to
pervade the' State generally. L It seems, how
. ever, that, scarce as Cameron Men - are among
I the people, the - y - arc quite mitnerous at Dar=
Irislyfitg . . In other.'lwords the members of:the
Legislature (a large number Pf them) and.
I their ei:;kistituents disagree as trio the fitness of
.1 Cameron for the 'Senatorship. i We will not
pretend to say what has caused this difference
Of opinion, 'but, we!think, it would be_ easy to
account ; for the vie„W that the people at large
rake of the question. When the NebraSka bill
was before Congress 're.po4s were current,
and unecintradicted, that Cameron was in
Washington, exerting his peculiar talent for'
intrigue; to prifvuie the pasl,ge of that infa,.
moos acti -. The peiple.wat lied the progress
t. a
of that biil With t.lO, most in , nse anxiety, and
when they discovered any man • laboring tila .
procure V4,11.4ii, they put upon him, for
'all future titne!; the mark of their 'condemna
tion. And when the letter writers from
Washin.gton itiforined us that Cameron was h
One of the ' boiersj' iu favor of that bill, and
the Statement 'Was' Undisputed, the people con.
demned him.: Afferwards, from the tirbe the
Nebraska bill Waspending, down to Septent
her last, we believe there was no public act
of his' that would le4 us to suppose • hitn any
thiagelse than tt consistent Nebraskaitel And
when he went into the Dauphin County ;Dent
ocratie ConvetitionOnst on the eye of the Oé
tober election,:nnii helped to pass resolutions
in favor of the-Nehittska.bill, ( as well as cer-
Itain others, strongly' candetrining Free-Soil
principles,) that ! was 'noti a proceeding
calculated to win -fiar hitn the love and confi
denceOf the peopleof Pennsylvania. Nor
could it be set:dori l as any thing in his favor
that the llarrisbnig, Democratic Union the
t Organ of. the Hunkoir Democraerof this State,
.., and avow r ed advocate - 0 . the Nebraska

and one of the bitterest enemies of free-soil.'

present time, !to- denounee the Free-Soilers
as all that is Vile add infamous. -
Such being „the' c state of facts, 'it is easy.
enough. to see' the reasons I that lead the
i i
people to reriudiate Catri.eroni;but it is not i
so easy to discover the motives that should 4

other candidates before the L. i ,*lslature, Men
far abler and iiurea, and whose political his.
tor a y ispledge ofl their:sincerity, instead of
affording, like ihis, im evident( of- insincerity
aud duplicity.; Why were all these - cast aside
'for Cameron ?[ The cause indicated by metn
bers - thelpseltes IS bribery, and committees
have been appointed by both Houses to in-
vestigate the dbarge. , We hope . that investi
will Ifieti th'orough one, and any can-
didate Who has beet] guilty of tampering with
theetnetabk.ra ftir their suffrages, will ofcourse

'From;ll that we can learn, from the man
ifesto- of t e bulteris and. newspapers, of the 1
proceedlngs o4the (*toms that nominated Cant
eron,_.we belive the nomination was unfairly
made, and thitt therefore the 33 bolters are'
justifiedtorth'eir course, and the other mem
bers.ShOuld not cOnsider themselves bound
by the actton ipf the caucus. We refer our
readers t 9 the address'signed by 28 members
-.which will bejfilundin another column, for a
vindication of the Bourse they felt called upon
to pursue, As fal as we cab judge from the
'voice, of ithe Press of the State, they will be_
sustained by the p6ple, - iti their dete'rmina
tion never to vote tor Simon Cameron. . •
-We think we e4l sce in the late proceed
ings at ITarrisburg, evidences of one. more
desperate effort of the Slave Power to retain
their hold Upon the North. Suite after State
has given in its adhesion to the principles of
-freedom.. 'A stami, must - be made in Penn
sylvania," wboseDemociacy " as Mr. Smith
of Tennessee recently said in a congressional
speech, " have heretofore known no North and
no South." The phttt has been well laid. It was
diseOered.that the Americans. and the Dem
ocrats 'were the only parties that possessed
much; strerig,th in the Legislature. WOuld
. not be an excellent arrangement if each of
these parties mulct de induced, to put in nom
k • -
tuatidn a _pro-sla*ry man, so that slavery
would( be sure 'to *in,' whichever side might
triuMph ? That teas the plan, in our view,
and Cameron and Buekalew ;Were the men
piteb‘d upon for candidates, an&then bribery
and enn.uptiori ive resorted to, to effect their
nomination. : ,
In ; the , case Backalew—a pro-slavery
Dernecrat who opposed the anti-Nebraska
resolutions that were before the Pennsylva
nia Senate, last wipter, in a long speech, and
was rewarded by President Pierce with a
luerativeforeign appointment, ere seems to
have been no diirsialty. He wee nominated
by fl) Democratic caucus, and uniformly
supported by the Democratic members, ex
cepti, that Mr. Sallade, a Hunker Democrat,
whdso election was strongly opposed by the
KnOwNotbingi, on the second ballot , went
°Veil form puckalew to Omicron, thinking it
would make b 4 diffeicnee.which of the
two; was elected. And probably some of
his Democratic, brethren will follow his exam
ple,',should'such a course become necessary
to effect Cameron's
In the ease Of Cameron more difficulty was
experienced. It is true that, by the introdne
tion into. the American miens of mar( who
havb in the Legislature uniformly oppo*d
the I party, and who would have been admit•
ted;there for no other purpose than to' nomi
nate Cameron; and by many other 'unfair
means, alleged, Camercn was, declared
the nothinee of the party.
lut this net effected till a large major.

'O trust that'these latter will remain firm
in the support of, their principles, and that a

i Scheme Worth Watellincp. • 1
We haye information from reliable sources that a
rurie is a=foot at Harrisburg in which it would! be
well that the People of the State should take a hand.
It Was started by a:number of County Treasurer, in
a prlyatc caucus held at Harrisburg, and as far na re
candearn,;:it hai been united in by all the incumbents
in the respective counties of the State. The'scheme
is to put 'a . ! Bill thrtiugli
.the Legislature changing
their term of office from what it is at present to three
years, and providing!, that those in office shall hold
ores for the three yeara. This would be a Yery.Pret
,tv way of providing ore's self with a snug berth 6 f it
should succeed, but we trust that the Peoplewill
speid: s o . ut and inforu the Legislature that they feel
conipetent to decide: this question, and that if they
desire the services Of any of the incumbentsfor a
longer term than they-are now elected for, theviwill
atttpd to them at. , lihe proper time.—Norrii &len
Hotald. . I.
commenting on the above, the-Hairis
burg Herald says, very truly, that " any at
tempt on the part of the Legislature to give
coUtitenance to any such seheine, or to pass
a law of the kind, alluded to by our Norlris-
. I

the:people of the State.

lature has rejected a resolution, requiring the la n' s to
be published in one of the papers of each county.*
The only way the people - can obtain! a knowlcdle of
the laws, is' by such publication. The expense will
be but little more than the present method of pub-
lishing a number of pamphlets, to which not one in
a litintired Can have access.. The plan is not a novel
ty. i It has been in operation in Ohio, for some years,
and has givfn general satisfaction.—Allentotrn Demo

better act than provide fur the publication of,

to give ; them publicity than through: the

more honesty in our present Legislature than
in any tor a duzen yearS past, writes is fol

ram informed this Committee are-in the way of
gaining important information, which will materially
affect the standing of certain Senators and members.
Senator Jordan, the Chairman of the Committeet id
an indefatigable and unpurchasable man, who will not

of the infamous business which has covered our, Leg

To prevent an action' so honorable to the Legisla
ture of our State, andlWo important to the future
terests of oar countri, l ihe Democratic party of S
quchanna County is *tit% forth its utmost exertiohs.
Its paper s fer want of; a single respectable objection
to bring against him, is filled, with low personal ab4se
and blackgnard. Menet high and honorable statlen
itiMontrmi are writing articles, dated from di& at
townships, of which tl4y would be utterly astranied
to aeknowiddge the anihonship in public. Men, siito
are men in church*, write anonymous atil
ries, in which they publish falsities whirl, they dire
net utter will their lipS. Nen who have opposed the
Proviso wits author ifrom ' its first inception uMII
now, are professing free soil principles publicly, rd
in the dark are strikinia deadly blow at the restriction
'of human Slavery. These- Nebraska Democrats ire
not content with abusing and misrepresenting *.
Wilmot at home, but they sent their hireling edttor ,
to Barrisbnig•to injure him there.. By misreprest
ations and false statements; he attempted to abase,
Mr. Wilmot In the puhlic mind and destroy the esegi
dance repo, ed in hini:-by 'the whole country. Mr.
Chase is known at 1114risbitrg,' and is therefore-pew
ekess to 'plum - though clothed with al the power:the
few Nebraska Democrats of this County can 4eleinio
ti) him. ' . , II
*lli is it that the Beniilbratle pi* of this Comity
is out upon' Mr. Wilmot with such fiendish malignity ?
It still firionn wetitdiiere,

the party for the same act in a speech which is ac
credited to be More - masterly and logical than the one
delivered by Mr. Wilmot during the same everd?g.—
Is it beeauie he . denounced Gov. Bigler for his par
ticipation in the crime of passing that infamous - bill?
No. ' From Mr. Grow come the statement that Gov.
Bigler had it in his power to control a sufficient num
ber of the delegation from Pennsylismia , to defeat the
pasuge of the Nebraska bill. No fault is found With
Mr. Grow. - Ile is the pet of the party. Then Why la
*it that Mr, Wilmot is so fiercely assailed? Why is it
that the Democratic party is down, with a vengeance,
upon' the . only Democratic candidate before the Legis
lature{ Who is , right upon the free soil question? Let
me ask you, calmly, why is it? I will tell you why.
it is because be refused to endorse tie Sebraska Kan
sas Bill. Mr, Grow voted directly , against his Anti-
Nebraska principles u drawn out and e4lained by
himself. Mr. Wilmot refused, poiiiively to do so.—
That is the difference between Mr. "Wilmot and Mr.
Grow, and the Democratic party Is . meting out to
them such rewards as it thinks each of them deserves.
• Non- I defy the whole party with all its time serv
"ing minions and dishonest politicians, to eubstantiate
another charge against him. Pointing, are yon, to his
rote on the 21st rule? Since that time, your Conven
tions ,have' endorsed Lis Anti-Slavery principles, time
and time tt , tt
a ,in and threeiiimes have you endorsed
his free soil principles at the ballot box. The men.
tion Of it, by ',you, now, only betrays the baseness of
the party and the extremitieslto whieh'itis,driven in
its present degradation. Do you tell 'me about the
Tariff? , Geo. S anderson, the man_ who pursued' Mr.
Wilmot, like a blood hound from township to town
ship through this County,, to prove he was wrong. on
the Nebraska bill, i declares Over, hie. own -signature
that Mr. Wilmot is light on the tariff question—=that
he is true to the iron land coal interests Of Pennsylya
nia. Dont you mutter that lie again. Sir. " Desert
ed his old Friends!" it is false as h—l. •He takes the
Proviso which has been' trampled under foot. by the
part and holding it aloft as a standard, asks his old
trienas to rally around him. But the Nebraska Dern
ocratS, hiding their motto, Populai• Sovereignty, un
der their cloaks,,stand aloof frora him, nay, join his
pro-Slavery enemies in a crusade against Lim. He is
deserted by his old friends because he, adheres to his
principles after the party has repudiated them. That
is hig sin. He carries his principles not only to the
fornm but to the ballot box. No other charge is pre
ferred against him.
But the Democratic party is wonderfully free soil
just now,—righteously indignant. at the outrage upon_
northern rights." Who - is its candidate? Softie anti-
Nebraska man of course. No, indeed'. An anti-N,e-
briska man can never be a can4idate of the Democrat
ic panty again.. The day has gone b y 'when free soil
sentiments will be sustained by the Democratic par
ty. In this - County such sentiments
,may l be, spoken
and Published by the party, but mark , raylword, thep
trill never be voted. The candidate of the party , for
11. S.' : Senator, like its candidate for Governor,ls out , I
and dut Nebra'ska. - The only anti-Nebraska
.date s opposed with the most unscrupulous vindk
tiveriesa. Yet there is hope of his election. If
defeated, and a man of opposite prixkiples elected, it.
will be wholly by the exertions of theDemocratie par
ty of the Wilmot Districi. If strong free 'soil ex.
pression could be sent to Harrisburg f ont the party •
in northern Pennsylvania, it would be!utterly impossi
ble fOr a Nebraska candidate to be elected: As it is,
individual remonstrances. must take the place . of party
action. Prompt and energetic measures may yet de
