When General POrter ws pominated,

parties; that Fvfit'., is opposed to it is an
enigma whick we • .nno teolve,
No man — can Bert- two maSteri, is a
maxim that no man wi dispute. Then,
how, we ask; can General ' orte l r, if elect
ed, go with !anti satisfy th two parties
that are now supporting him, hich are
as wide apart on the great and a absorb
ing measure of the. administration, as the
antipodes? He cannot. - He must unite
himself with one of those parties, and a
bandon the other. After having been an
eye-witness during the last session of Con
gress of the overpowering influence of the
Executive, fo seduce to,abandon their
friends, and in total disregard of the inter
ests and wig of their constituents, 'to fol
low the lead, and in the _ walk of power,
we are at no-loss to make up an Opinion
for ourselves, which party will; be aban
doned, and which courted. The conser
vatives will find no more favor with Gen
eral Porter, ifite shall be elected, (in our
opinion) than those'who openly Oppose his
election. They will be cast off, and be
denounced in Pennsylvania, as they have
been in many other places, particularly
through the columns of the offitiial organ,
as "federalists," "traitors," “bank bought
renegades," "enemies to their .counity,"
and "opponent€ to the administration."
But were it otherwise, awl should Gen.
Porter disapprove of the Sub-Treasury,
after he enters . the Gubernatorial chair,
his election would be claimed as a tri-_
umph of .he administration and its mea
sures, and be heralded forth on the wings
of the wind as such, for effect of the elec
tions in other States, {particularly New
York,) which would be prodigious.•
It has been semi-officially announced in
the columns of the Glob, and in tie ad
dress of the Loco -Foci, portion of Con
gress, that the issue, is to be continued,
Sub-Treasury or no Sub treasury. Upon
that measure we have been told, is suspen
deci the fate of the Admmistration. Upon
it, Mr. Van Buren'a friends have declared
• that he "will sink or swim." • Every sa.
iteittus observer cannot fail to see, that
that must be the course he is now compel! ;
ed to pursue. He has adhered to it so
long, and urged it with such pertinency,
he rennet retreat and abandon it if
sired so to do. He must go forward.
tlo gh the yawning abyss into which it
will' inevitably carry him, was full to his
view before him.
Hope, Clot so often deludes by its eat.
taring tales, now ,buoys . Mr. Van Buren
aid his followers. An eyes are notiv. turn
ed towards P-onsylvania, the great Rey•
stone of then Union. If General Porter
shall be defeated, we believe that will end
the struggle; we feel confident that not e
ven an effort will be'made in another; the
baneful Sub treasury system and policy
will he immediately abandoned forever.—
If, on the contrary, he shall be elected, it
will be claimed as an administration tri
umph, and the Shouts of victory will re
sound from State to. State, and unparal
(Pled efforts will be made to carry the elec.

It is under this important Position the
State of Pennsylvania now occupies, that
her election - loses its local and assumes a
national - character. The whole Union is
deeply interested, and will be equally effect

which emboldened us to extend the length
of this article and give_thear3 views,
We have never - believed that' General
Porter could be elected under any circum•
stances whatever. Yet, wo may have un
der estimated the strength of those who
are united in his support, and ovue-estimat

In conclusion, we beseecii our frien4s in

are opposed to the Sub-treasury scheme.
