Our choice for that position under
stood by our readers; and we confess ourlas-,

*.tredhead's nomination in caocus,,, we pre=.
tlictud . it to : be game Of , Cr CAMERON, ttO secure
I his cumuleetion; ancithough subsequent events
proved tile contrary, we arc aro not satisfied that
Simon didn't; manage it. ~The,; exultation of
his friends; the fact that - neither they or: Min
self encievored to. defeat Mr. 8., seems eon
clUsive evidence, of an understanding and , ar
rangement, for who ever knew Simon Cameron
to befillant on's question, that affected his in
terest in the most remote particular?. -We are'
disposed to sacrifice almost , anything but -prin
ciples for the sake of harrnooy, ,and therefore
will hcpe for, the Best till the worst comes. ,
Onseveral, of the first ballotings in caucus,
Judge_ W9ODWARD received the largest num.
ber of votes of any candidate ; and his chohce
`for Success, seemed by farthe fitirest. Thia ofj
coursecould not be allowed by BuenawAs and 1
Cameron, though at war with each other : 'cud I
that fellow-feeling of revenge, which they'mu.
Wally cherish towards Mr. Woodtvard, whose
purity,of mind, putpgse,.and, principle they
would do. well, to emulate, induced
_them to 1
combine thee;`forces to defeat'
We, are not satisfied with Brodhead's elec
tion, over Jiidge Woodward, for 15everal prom.
inert masons., TkiiSt, in point of talent;. Judge'
W. is an 'intellectual- giant when compared'
with him, and -though Mr. Brodhead may - pos.!'
seas fair abilities, he , has not the •eletnei4s,. of 1
greatpeae niental.,tunDeC ea+.7 to
' occupy a prominent place is the 'Senate, mull
which Judge,W'oodward_possesscs to an emit)-
1 ent degree. To suppose that Mr. Brodhead
can tali,. a position along side of the leading,
men of our country is absurd, while only, one
at all acquainted with Judge Woodward, knows '
that he most certainly 'would if he had thh pa ]
sition to admit of it. It is a shame on Penn.!
