A Pal) delegation consists of two persOns

and two sets of Delegates. The Delegates

ferees as above, making both delegations coM
plete. .
It is probaby Well known to our readers
that the gentleman whose name heads this or.
tide, stands before the Demomaey of Pennsyl
vania, a candidate for the office of Governor.
The Convention to which his name will be
submitted will assemble in a fowl weeks; the
nominations for the respective State offices, to
be filled the coming fall, will be made and the
Campaign fairly opened.
Present appearance's indicate to a certainty
that Mr. BIGLER will be the nominee o r the
Reading - Convention, for Governor, and, for
our own part, we have not now, nor have we
ever had, in connection with the coming Cam
paign, any other choice for the high and;hon
orable position to which he has been n4med.
He is emphatically a than from the ranks o f the
people, his whole life. having been spent en ar
duousindustrial pursuits and enterprise% and
a man universally beloved for-his many amia
ble qualities as a gentleman. The exalted pa-.
trjotism of the min; his virtues; his purity o •
purpose and character; his stern integrity; his
unquestioned and unquestionable, Democracy.
in heart, sympsthy and principle, all combine
to make him the man of our choice,i, and the
man whom the Democrats of Susquehanna
will delight to honor with one of.their largest
' Aft; /31aLna' was six years a State i enator,
in which position he distinguished himself as
an able and EtithfelLegislator. As Chairman
of the Committee of Finance, the most diffi
cult and arduous position in the Senate, he
displayed wonde rful skill and talent; and when
he le ft the Senate, all agreed that it had lost
one of its brightest ornaments. i ''. '.
The position of the Democratic party of this
State, in reference to the opening Campaign,
is certainly.a proud one. Harmony apparent
ly exists everywhere; and from all sectionslof
the State comes a voice which seems a certain
prelude to suecees. The unfortunate state of
things that lost us the election three yetis
ci zal
ago will 'not a ff ect us now, t&all Pppeanut es, 1
and we really cannot conceive how defeat
prostrate ns next fill; save it be by over co ft-
dence in ourselves. In that there is danger;
and the mistake is often made that we pre
strong because united. The motto that "p
-ion is strength" loses its truth, when the' ,
strength is not employed in active service:—'
Give us union and-a power, an energy, to bring
the.united elements into actite service rather
than passive, and the Democracyof.Peniasylva
nia cannot be beaten.. All put history author- ,
izes this conclusion. - I
Every Democrat then, should feel it a duty
to himself and his principles, to act, to work,
to labor, diligently, faithfully. We have the
same active, ever-ready foe to contend with,
and.their every energy is now sharipated by
previous success. We know of sloth= in the
State around whOm the Dsmocrta can rally
more enthusiastically now, than around him
who promises to be the candidate 6f their
choice; and, wafer such circumstances, do.
feat would be humiliating in the extreme.
and one from - which they would not recover
for icing years to come. With our . opponents
the struggle will be a desperate one, for, to
them, the. verdict that' given will be , ansro 7

executive reins for the last thtce years, during
which their 'policy has 'been, perhaps, more
boldly declared than eves before, so the verdict

Harmonious Whiggerr•mnow In the
Whitt Convention.
The richest politipal demonstration we ever
witnessed, came off at the Whig Convention,
in this place, on Tuesday evening of last Week.
We earnestly wish that every Whig in Sus
quehanna County had been present, and we
are certain the candid ones would Jtave Made
up their minds firmly, never again to act with
the Whig party of this county, so long as it
should be led by the men who figared that
Convention to their own purposes.
It was evident at the organization of the
Convention, that the "Clique" (to use a Whig
phrase) had - the arrangements all completed,
to send Delegates to the State Convention
who would support Hon. Wat. lissue for the
Supreme Bench. '
Contrary to all usages and befona the Con
vention had half assembled, the Chairman of
the Standing Committee, without even stating
the object of the meeting, nominated ABEL
CAsstor, Esq., for President. A' suitable
number of Vice Presidents, Secretaries, &c.,
having been chosen, A, Chamberlin, Esq,
"moved that a Comnattee of thirteen," not
like Hr. Foote's Committee, to save the
Union, but "to report Resolutions, and to
nominate suitable persons as Delegates to the
State Convention." This was agreed to,where
upon a "suitable," person slyly passed to the
President, a list of "suitable persons" for said
Committee, made out for him to copy, thus
giving the whole an appearance of fairness, as
thoughiappointed by the President, instead o
having been got up in alawyer's office in town.
Dr. Patrick, one of the champions on the
side otthe People, saw how the game, was
working, and moved to add thirteen' more
names to the Conimittee, and presented a list
of Whigs of the county principally, instead of
the Borough of Montrose. Uri flash of light
ning had that moment darted through the
room, it would not have startled the "leaders"
more. They denounced the motion in the
mast vociferous manner, and seemed deter
mined to brow-beit'the Doctor down. But
they-had "waked up- the wrong passenger,"
—the Doctor 'was " after them." The motion
was seconded and a vote taken amidst a gea r
eral uproar and confusion. The "Clique"
made an the show of strength posidble, by
aliontMg, No, No, NO, nt the top of their voi
tea, and insisted that the motion was lost,
whemin fact, it Was carried by more than a
two-thirds Vote. The vote was taken again
and again With.the same result. A division of
the house time called for by A. Newton Esq.,
The "Clique" seeing themselves caught, blus
tered and raved, and the President stool nal
though stupefied. Finally the Doctor'arose;
and expiated the whole game of the "Clique" ,
to the audience, plaeingi them in no very envia.
ble light , They then 'offered to compromise
by taking both - lists, tuao selecting nine names
to compose the Committee, being careful . to
secure the , oda one themselves. The Doctor
and his friends were rather forcedlo accede'
to lhis, for, somehow, the President could not
undmitand how the Whig. delegation from
the whole county could - awry a motion when
the "Clique," composed of five or six persons,
voted Noq The Committee was then formed
by the President, and on the
f irst reading of
I theilials N. Newton Esq., was the first named,
so of course be would, be the Chahman; but
Mitt* second reading it appears that A.Charn.
berlin, Esq., had taken - his place! A slight at
hand peifoftoanett we presume..
The Committee retired, and soon returned
With resolutions, dm., and among the red" one'
nominating Urbane Bunrows mad OilberfWar-
Or forDelvites to the State - Convention,—
Hein the Doctor stepped on %aloes of tfie
al Clique; by open and bold opposition to the
kesolutke, an in' under -bunted game to send
a couple of the " Ciiquo:merr to thO
tion, who were known to be anxious to go,but
dare not have tbeir'namas used lnihe Coven:
tion, knOiring that they could not get five
votes without votingfor themselves. sSo_they
thought to . get Messrs. Burrows and Wainer
elected, who,instend ofgoiug would substitute
them. • The Doctor kw tins, and 'offered an
amendment to - the resolution, substituting G.
W. Stephens, BK., in place of Mr. Burrows.
Mr,Stephens 'would go. if elected, and:the
"'Clique" opposed-him with
_all their might,
thus proving the troth of the' Doctor's - 11
The Doctor insisted that a vote should be
Utica on hisamendment; the'" Clique" bins
tered, donned and scolded, but • the. DeCtor
reas'nt scarf.", Her exposed the heartless
cheat, and called tipin the. Whigs present to
crush it, and show the "gentry" that they
knew their. rights and meant to take care of
them. The most sagacious of the "Clique"
now diaeovered that,the Doctor's amendment
was " out of oider because it changed the char
acter of the whok Resolution," and intimated to
the Prestdent that it w,as his business to do as
they (the Clique) told him to? A re&lar row
ensued for nearly , hour, when somebody
said, "Stephens wont vote for Jessup," where
upon the President rated the, amendment out
of order, till the wig - hill Resolution should be
passed! The "Clique" Were evidently sur
prised at the sagacity of the . President,' for
even they hid het thisught of 'objection.. How
ever, it , was manifestly out of the "order" that
the CliAue had laid down, and It was fully
understood-ilia' his decision was foirued on
that principle.' Such principles embodied in a
Legislative ganualrwould, we presume, su
percede Jefrerson'e, and enlighten the world !
The vote was finally taken on the original
Resolution,' amid a general tumult. "You lie,"
"you are a liar," Mho President is a fool," &c.
&e., followed the - decision that the Resolution
was , carried. A division of the house wa h
called for, but the "Clique" would not allow
It. They dare:not have the vote counted, or a
fair vote taken. '
Stillman Fuller, Esq., then offered the fol
lowing Resolution:—
"Resolved, That we hereby instruct our
"delegates, to,supiiort no nian as a candidate
"for the office of Supreme Court Judge, who
"has, directly or indirectly, opposed the Amend
ment to the Constitution, under the provisions
" of which, they are to be chosen by the People.
Here, was a "direct" hit at. the "Regency,"
and through. them, at His Honor, the Judge.—
Mr. Fuller had charge of the Register office
last fall, when these same gentlemen went
there, and cut from the Whig Ticket, the votes
or the Amendment, spoken of in the above
Resolution. The "-Clique" were now fairly
caught, and to prevent a vote being, taken on
Mr. Fuller's Resolution, they moved to ad
journ, which they carried with a row.
- We have made these statements as correct
ly as possible from memory. "The ono halt
has not been told," nor can it be described on
paper. It was certainly the boldest game we
ever saw played to suppress the voice of the
people, and we shall wonder much if the inde
pendent Whigs of this county, do not teach
the "Regency" a lesson . that they will long I
remember. We trust we shall hear no more
of " Fireproof Cliques," " Regency" &c., from
those who originated the schemes and chica
net"' so fully exposed in , that Convention.
Injustice to Dr. Patrick and Mr. Newton,
who took the side of the people, we would
state, that they conducted matters on their side
with perfect fainiess. The motions made by
them were clearly in order, nor did they evince
any disposition to iiolate the principles of
honorable dealing and fair arrangement; and
the Doctor assured them on the spot, that he
should "take an appeal to the poor man's
Court,—the ballot box."
AL Dtsratcr.—A 'despatch from a distinguish
ed Democrarin Danville, dated yesterday, re.
marks as follovis upon the investigation into
the election for Congress in the above district,
now being condußed hi Danville. It will be
remembered that Col. H. B. Wright:tbe De.m.
ocratic candidate at the late election, contests
the seat of Col. Henry 31. Fuller, who has the
certificate :
Danville, April 25, 1851
The evidence of the contested election case
yesterday, and today, discloses astounding
frauds, not less than one hundred urinaturaliz
ed persons and boys,' cast their votes for the
Federal candidate for Congress.
We clip the above from the Pennsylvanian.
It Will be recollected that Mr. Fuller's majori.
ty ever Col. Wright was only about sixty. If
the l above despatch bo correct, we judge that
the CoL will succeed.
eign papers state that the committee of the
British and foreign Bible Society have secured

have been engaged for the last forty-six years

be seen and read in one hundred and fifty fan.
guag j es and dialects. In connexion with this
the following brief remarks of an English wri
ter are exceedingly appropriate, and will be
read with interest : •
-"To many (says Anderson) it might seem
too bold, were we to affirm that the English
Bible is at present in the act of being perused
from the rising to the setting sun. The -as

this is no more than the half of the truth. The

The council for plaintiff stated that the defen.
dant was entitled to the interest for life of a
large sum—he believed equal. to 834,000 per
annum. The plaintiff is a very young man,
obviously younger than 'the defendant. Ile 1
alleges that he has suffered serious damages,
in consequence of the long, pending engage,
meet; which induced him to.neglect, his pro:
fession, and that its termination threw him in
to a fit of sickness, The plaintiff's coun
sel read a long correspondence between the
parties, which served.:to relieve the tedium of
a civil trial; The plaintiff was non-suited up
on the strength of one of his letters produced
by the defendant's counsel, in which he stated
he would give her three days time to

whether she would marry him or not, and that
