be sure . to effect the interest of the other.
T is was einehatically the case in our par

the moderate Whigs, formed their compo

We have mentioned these facts' solely

Upon this they resolved together,' tlAt the

the consequence was the whole body was

not one of indolence, or ease—that it
only received the nourishment which they

In less than four weeks, the elec

which is to, deeidethe fate and pros

ensuing season. Many of yok have
not yet decided for whom to vete—
either .front carelessness, want of
promptness, or . the fear of ;being
wrong. Look -with us therefore at
the results which will be attendant
en the two issues. In the first I plane

cate of Mr. Van Buren and h 4 mea

Ito take the control of public Money
!from the custody of the • people,
and give it to office holders—this
will be revived and insisted on.—
The consequence of this win be, a
continuation of those rash experi
ments which have brought our bu
siness' almost to n stand, at' 'least
have rendered it discourageing and
ruinous. No facilities for carry-
ing on our operations can be obtain- -
ed, and the inevitable result' must
be, our operators will be left with
out capital to continue basiness the
ensuing winter; money cannot be
obtained, and the miner, the me
chanic, and the labourer, must be
thrown out of emptCy. This is as
sure as to morrow's sunrise—Bat on
the other hand if JOSEPH RIT
NER, is re-elected, public confi
dence will be revived—the
ties on which the colliers must rely
to carry on their winter operations,
will be obtained, and a cheek will
be given to experiments and sub
treasury schemes.
Pause then fellow citizens, before
you vote, for it is •f vital impor-•
tanee to yourselves—rest assured
that if you produce a wrong 'result,
you are injuring yourselves.—Those
who claim to be your friends,_ and
,you to vote for Porter, will
desert you. when their wishes are
accomplished—when ruin is brought
on your families, and they are fat
tening on it, they will not bring you
work to support them; they will not
clothe your suffering wives; they
will not pia bread in to the mouths
of your starving children.
Glorious. news
cttr ! The r g -election of Joseph Ritnerren
dered certain. .1;:()
, .
Oa Wednesday evening last we had the
pleatiore of hearing from those,of our del
who have returned, the triumphant
result of our Convention The thousands
of Whigs who assemble to join in the
support of Joseph Ritner, and their spirit
proceedings stroc dismay and terror
into the Porter rank nd file; the of fi ce
holders looked bilious, and the expectants
agueish. Never in or country have
Four thousand of o fellow citizens met
together, as delegates before—never were
such perfect harmony, unanimity and con-
I cord *xhibited. From the estimates made,
the election of Joseph Ritner is certain.
He cannot have less than 8000 majority,
and will probably have double that num
ber? An address to the people of the
State 'was reported, which will be laid be
fore our readers as soon as received. The
delegation saw the original transfer of Da
vid R. Porter's, property, in his own hand
writing, and dated only three&four days
before he applied 'for the Benefit of the
Insolvent laws. Samuel Sturgeon was on
the ground—add delivered a plain unvar
nished tale in such a manner as to carry
conviction to all. The documents were
acknowledged by all of both parties to be
genuine—and looked upon as the evidence
of his infamy under. his own hand—his
I confusion.
Milner Township Meetings.
The friends of Ritner will hold a town
ship meeting this afternoon, at. Friedens

A meeting will also be held at the house
of Jacob Rapp, in Union Township, on

Schuylkill, Lehi gh, -Speiser .filetcdow, and
Lackawanna, and now . but 4150,000 tons ;
have been sent to motet, making sp far a
deficit of 124,1100. From 150 to 175,000
tons were on hand at the commencement
of the season, a major part of "islich was
theOrtrbite Agh, generally -used for manu
facturing purposes,,the demand for which
had been superceded by die effects of the
government experiments. The-consump
tion last year, as near as can be ascertain
ed, was from 725 to 750,000; there h4ving
been upwards of 8.50,090 tons sent-to mar
ket, and there remained over at Kingston{
Jersey City, and other places, about 50,-
000 tons white ash Coal, making the whole
yearly supply 900,000 tons. Of this' quan
tity, John White, Esq. who Visited the dif
ferent markets early this Sprie.g, estimated
about 400,000 remaining on band' the Ist
of April. It is a well known fact that more
Coal was sold in the month of April for im
mediate consumption than during any of
the winter months, aril as there was very
little shipped to market during that•rnonth,
we are inclined to estimate the quantity on
hand at from 150 to 175,000 tuna out of
the 900,000 in market.
At the time we penned,oor article alludel
to by the Ledger, there was nearly an entire;
cessation of the coal business owing to the
want of purchasers. If this state of things
bad continued any length of titne,.there
must certainly have been a Ann supply—
and as it is, every/ exertion cannot prevent
the quantity_sent down this season from
falling short of the last from 150 to 175,-
000 tons. We believe the market will be
barely supplied, if the demand continues
brisk for the. remainder of the navigable
season, and there-should be an immediate
supplY of water in the canal, which is at
present almost useless from the continued
drought, and consequently the shipments
from this region have nearly been sus
The Collier deprecates high prices for I
Coal; all he asks is a fair living profit,'
Which prevents prices, from
which they can derive no possible benefit, '
but an absolute injury, as creating a want
of confidence. This year, however, sw
ing to peculiar causes, they have not re
ceived even this living profit; a large pen
non of the Coal has been sold at less than
cost, and eve think we are safe in saying
that at least one-half that has been sent to
market, has not more than paid cixpenses.
At all eve is it is evident that Witte price
of coal ishigh in our cities, the first holders
here derive no advantage from the! advance,
all the benefit must accrue .to the dealers
and retailers where such advance has ta
ken place.
Last year we were accused of tryil to
depress.the price of Coal—this year ore.
flung a panic to enhance its value. We
are equally guiltless of both charges. , We
wish to see a fair value teceived fur our
staple,*arid the lower it can be aNirded the
better for the interests of the region, as
well as the consumers. Our cq of scar
city was not without Toumlstioo—human
efforts can barely prevent it, and it is our
wish to have a full supply to prevent the
increase of price which a deficit must oc
casion. Last winter was comparatively
mild; much less Coal was used tan antici
pated—hardly any for manufact ring put.-
1 3
poses, and for domestic uses th ruinous
state of the times compelled the most rigid
economy; at all events, had business con
tined uninterrupted, there would not have
been too much Coal. When there is a
short supply, no matter from what cause,
the collier is Idamed first, and the cry is
immediately to take off the duty on foreign
coal. It is - therefore our duty; when we
think the supply will be short, to warn
them of the fact; if there is an Overstock,'
the coal region receives no benefit from it;
the consumer has all the advantage of a
glutted market. 1
Review the subject calmly—look at the
relative situation and interest orthe collier
and the consumer, and it must Oe evident
we can have no motive for misrepresenta.
