introdueing it Resolution, before the Commis
4ioners, doing away with, that law and allow

which afterwards was found. to mean promises
Of that notorious swindling concern, the Tow
antra Bank!, That Resolution he 'supported
in one of his master'speeches, bringing all Ids
eloquence, and influence, andlho weight of his
great Intelieit and .powers of mind, that we
hear so much about, to bear on its passage.—
This "Surplus Stock" transaction`furnishes a
key, that opens, the reason.why he labored so
zealeusly to carry
- that Resolution. He says,
in his testimony, that the Company was form
ed prior to, the sale of the stock; and bear in
mind that the law required ten per cent of the
stock, to-be paid in specie to - the Commission
ers at the sale. To •evade this provision of
the law heintrodueed and carried the Resolu
tion; and mark ye well the 'shameless pro
ceedings that followed. About ten thousand
dollars was taken from the Towanda Bank,
brought to Montrose by this Surplus Stock
Company, of which Jtidge Jessup by his - own
testimony was .a leading spirit; over seventy
thousand dollars, as sworn to by Mr. Post was
bid oft by this Company, and this Towanda
money used topay_the ten per cent nith.° And
had the fraud stopped even there, there would
have been some palliating circumstances, - and
the dishonesty, (it would be called such in
those obscure person§ who practiee without a
Bank Charter) would not have been so great.
It is clear-11y Mr. Post's and Mr.Mulford's ev
idence, that the money taken from the Tow
anda Bank. was only formally handed over to
the Commissioners; to-blind, the, eyes of the
public, and teas then_ taken back to the Bank,
and the note or= obligation given for it was
cancelled. In other words, the money. was
borrodsd, fir got hold of some how, brought
hen, and Ishibited and.then taken batik:and
replaced. A more perfect fraud; a beret's
honest,designing, calculating game- Was, we
vulture to say, never practiced in anysommtt
nity ; and, who was an active participant in it;
who was the great nian eloquent in consum
mating it who saw it "signed signed sealed and de

Who ever:heard the..fike! Firsts sort of con
spiracy was entered into,as Mr. Jessup swears,
to prevent persons in New York and Philadel

would have paid it in good faith. To prevent
this,a Company wag formed, Which,sofar from

whether Whigs or Democrats, will pass.the
same verdict, upon the, saw act, whether corn:

short, we believe thatthe people of Pennsylva- ,

particular, will not be over . anxious to appOar
learned in tho distinctions that . some pe o ple

runs counter to law "on his own hodk." We
assert) the Whigs of Pennsylvania,—that the
pill will net go down in the empty in which
Judge Jessup resides, among your own breth :
len. However anxious they may. feel to en
dorse your eandidates, they will not endorse
them, when ,to do so they have to endorse the
Susquehanna . county swindle. The - people of
Susquehanna have too much regard for hon
esty and fair dealing-to do so, and More - than
this, they will not be.made " accessories after
the fact," as the law terms it, by upholding
the perpetrator with their votes.. And, farther
too, the Whigs boast here that they are " the
law and order iarty," and they aro not going iii
to compromise their fajth, in. that respect, by
supporting one of their fallen'Angels..
,For our own part, we are glad to see the
press, in all parts of-the State, speaking out on
this question. It has now become a State,
question, politically, by Judge - iessup's 'own
act, and the, assumed aignity of Judicial er
mine can effect but little towards shielding
him from the merited rebuke of an indignant
people. He aspires to a place of public trust,
and tho manner in which he has discharged
previous public trusts should be faithfully. ex
amined, and his claims to this one judged there
by. We assure other sections of the State,
that here,, in his own hdme, they will not only
be examined; but passed upon with little ref
erence to party distinctions. ,

After the publication of thlt article I called up
cm the senior.editor of the Democrat and re

it regarded the lion. Wm. Jessup. This has
not been done, although' a spirit of justice and
regard for - truth would .hare suggested to

that the statement was false. Hon. William

it they hare, any disposition to do right or re

Now by comparing the two angles, above

"stated that the Susquehanna Register was

said "the others-referred,to by Mr. Chapman

EDEMAS OF VIE: DEMOCRAT:—
I was thinking very seriously, ladt week, 'of
taking a trip, over to Londeti, I have talretdy been
there, several thins; and have traveled over En-
rope—from one end ot Franco to the olper, on
foot—but a year hence, no one but;
have been to the World's Fair, will be colsidered
by the polite circles of New' York, to have ever
been in England, at all. Horace Greeley has
gone—and so has Bennett—to say uothlng of a
host of inferior scriblers. Why, thea, shotitd not I
your correspondent keep np with.the rest of them?
When Maraca comes hack, people will listen to
him about Europe, and . Bennett will Fpeak on the
subject, - like a man of eiperience while, should
your correspndent hazard en opinion. at Variance
with those - of a visitor to theiWOrld's Fair, he will
be immediately contradicted, siaubbed, and told
"all that is changed now—things are very differ
ent frotn when yea Were in Europe." • -
Your correspondent, having . matOrely weig,hed
and considered the arguments in: favor of 'jig going
to Europe, and those in favor
,of- hie , sta'y Mg at
home, come to the irresistible conclusion that he
ought to go. Fortunately or itafortunateiy, how
ever; he found upon further reflection, that he had
not the funds necessary to carry out his iaudabiO
deiign—so he had to give it up.
The English papers continue to sneer at • the
American contributions to tbo . Weald's Fair; but,
occasionally; they inadvertently let slip al compli
ment to some of our centributora. :For Ciample,
