Speech of John Cessna.
The following report of the remarks of 301 m
Cnsmu before the Straight-mu Douglas Com
’mittee is taken from Kthe firms. and is worghy of
preservation as an humble confession of weak—
Mr. Cessna responded in some lengthy remarks. The
action of the Brockinridge flank, in falling luck upon
the Reading ticket was prompted by a. desire to ruin
Judge Douglas. They hoped ‘hkt the. stmight ticket
would be retained‘ knowing that the friend: of Judge
Dough: would be divi-‘ed between it and the Reading
regular ticket. Then they would oanly decl me that the
eompnnvive'y few 17 tes cast. fur the straight ticket con
stituted Doualas’ entire strength in Pennsylvania. and
claim the entire vote for the andingficket as indicative
of Breckinridge strength. '1 he hopmi of Judge Douglas
woilld be ruined by retaining the straight ticket. It
had wheel-wed its purpose invocrcngtheWelsh-ites into
snlnnias on The regular electors were bound in honor
to support Douglas Ind Johnson. for in no historic case
had an elector failed to represent the mshes of his con

dream, le.
The Douglas Straight-out Committee met in
Philadelphia on Thursday last, am} determined
to withdraw the Straight—cut Douglas electoral
ticket, and also recommended the Reading elec—
toral ticket to the suyport. of: the Douglas men
of the State- As the Demccx‘aiic State Como
mittee has already recommended the Reading
ticket as it was constituted by the State Con
vention, without conditions or pledges, there
is now only one ticket in the field claiming the
support of Democrats. Untier these circum
stances we can urge upon Democrats every
where, without regard to Presidential prefer
ences, to use their utmost exertions to have the
full Democratic vote of the State polled in No
We do not. feel disposed to quarrel Willl the
members of the Straight—out. Douglas Commit,-
tee for the reasons assigned in their resolu
tions and address for withdrawing the disor
ganizing electoral ticket, new that. they have
thought. proper to take the back track. They
are perfectly welcome to extricate themselves
from a disagreeable position with all the plan
sibility and grace at their command. But it is
(somewhat. diflicult to preserve a. respectful de
gree of gravity while reading the excuses which
this Committee have rendered to the public.
The sum and substance of their apology is,
that. their only object; in getting up an electoral
ticket. in opposition to the one regularly consti
' tutedat Balding, was to induce the regular State
Committee to hdhere to the Reading ticket un
conditionally; and that they never wished the
electors to be specifically pledged to vote for
Douglas in the event. of their election, regard
ing the resolutions of the Reading Convention
as binding them to vote for Douglas and John
son as the regular nominees of the Nntional
Convention. Since the State Committee has
rescinded the compromise resolutions, they are
pet-f only satisfied. This is certainly drawing
it very mild. The Straight-out. Committee
might have saved themselves much trouble,
and possibly the.Democ-ratic party from de
feat, if they had made known their intentions
several months ago. The sole object of the
regular State Committee in proposing a, 001 m
laromise, in view of the divisions existing in
the Democratic party, was to concentrate the
vore upon :1 single electoral ticket. Had the
Committee been aware that the Douglas men
would have been satisfied with the Reading
ticket, pure and simple, WLthout specific
pledges, We have no doubt. that it would have
recommended that ticket. to the support of the
party without a moment‘s hesitalion. The
only reason why they did not, was because the
Douglas men insisted upon the electors being
all pledged to Vite for Douglas. If a return
to the Readig ticket was the only object of the
Douglas Committee, why did they insist. upon
interrogating the ole-esters, and why' did they
strike from Ihe list. all who would not answer
unequivocally in favor of Douglas and John
son '1
But Mr. John Cessns gives a, much better
reason for viijlldrawing the Straight-out ticket,
than the resolutions and address of the Com
mittee. He expressed apprehensions that» if
.fllia ticket was kept in the field it would get
only an insignificant number of votes, and this
Inn‘ld be taken gs an indication of Doug‘ae'
strength, or rather weakness in Pennsylvania.
111'. Cessna is a shrewd politician. and as such
sees'the necessity of hiding the Weakness of
Douglas from those who have been made lo be
lieve in his amazing strength. We give him
credit for his sagncity.
As before remarked. however, we will not
quarrel with these gentlemen for doing it good
thing, or seek to deprive them of any excuses
for their misconduct. We are gratified to find
an tribulation has brought repentance, and
M shay have at last been brought to see it:
virtue of adhering to the regular crganizntion
of the party.
This is satisfactory, as far as it goes. But,
we shall not rest wholly satisfied that. all is
right until We hear from the “member of the
National Executive Committee for Pennsylva
nia.” AS he occupies the position of guardian
over the interests of Mr. Douglas in Pennsyl—
vania. it is incumbent upon him to see that.
those interests are not sacrificed by “compro
mise with traitors.” We await. in breathless
suspense to learn whether the action of the
Committee is liable to that objection.
What Shall We All Get?
It would [k curious and instructive it" the
expectations of the prominent. Republicans of
this State should be revealed to the public
inspection. How are all these patriots to be.
compensated for their exertions in behalf of
Lincoln and Curtin? How many regard a
Cabinet appointment. or a foreign mission as the
least recognition of their services that Lincoln
can venture to offer, in case he becomes Presi
dent? It is a melancholy fact thatwe can’tall
be accommodated with Cabinet- places, foreign
appointments and fat oilices, and that some who
did and suffered immensely in the cause will be
compelled to be satisfied with an approving
conscience as their only reward—which is well
enough in its way, but not exactly the sort of
food to satisfy the cravings of hungry patriots.
In the first place, there is ALEX. K. M‘Can-i.
Chairman of the Republican Committee, to be
provided for, and provided for handsomely. lie
is not- the man to be put oil with crumbs. He
must have a whole pie to himself. After or
ganizing the State and contributing so much to
the election of Carlin. he has accumulated a
large amount of political merit. thatit. would he
a. shame to overlook—and not only shameful
but dangerous. His name has already been
suggested as a sort of {color for two ofiices by
the Chambersburg Transcrwt, but we hope that
he will not insist upon having both. The
Transcrio! thinks that he would make a splendid
United States Senator, and a very efficient.
Secretary of the Commonwealth. If it had only
thrown in a Cabinet office and a foreign mission l
the effect would have still been more bewilder
ing to other aspirants for position; but. it seems
to be generally understood that Mr. M’Clure
asks nothing more than to be elected to the
United States Senate, and that he will magnan
imously decline all other ofiices. .
But Wilmot, and M’Micharl, and Pollock,
and Mann, and Iteeder, and Stevens, and some
two or three dozen more, think that they ought
to he Senators, or something else equally hon:
orable and comfortable. It ’don’t appear to
them exactly fair that. the old soldiers should
he overslaughed for a dashing young blade like
M’C-lure. Wilmot can boast of the northern
counties that, he revolutionized ; M’Michael of
his exertions against Fosrnn in the North
American, and of his success in convincing the
conservatives of Philadelphia that. Lincoln was
a very moderate man, not at all inclined to
Abolitionismj. Reeder can point. to his wounds
incurred in the Kansas wars, and Stevens to his
long and consistent Abolition record. If the
‘ Chairman of the State Committee can beat up
against this army of rivals, and carry oil” the
prize in the face of their opposition, he will
prove himself the most able and sngncious
general of the campaign. Already there are
indications that the struggle for the office of
Senator will be long and earnest, and that the
man who wins will hare to fight hard for it.
It, is painful to think that so many hopes and
'patriotic aspirations nre destined to be blighted
within the next twelvemouth; but multitudes
must be disappointed when ‘ofiices are few and
applicants many. Such is the fat-e of war and
The Insolence of Funaticism.
Car}. Shurtz (one of the skirts of Nessus on
the back of Mockßepubficanism) in a speech
at. Utica, New York, on Monday, represented
John Brown as a teacher of Virginia, and his
bloody instruclions as their first lesson in Re
pubficanism. This is a part of his insolcnt
strain ,:
But Southern men must have learned something from
the events of the past few years. They mus‘ have
learned that the northernmost slave States are not quite

learned that. the Northern Ya: kees, the blue-bellied

This {irade against American citizens as
“polu'oons,” comes with bad grace from one
who, according to his own confession, has‘
given personal illuslraiiou that “ Bragggdocio
and Polu‘nonory are close bed-fellows."
Mr. Samuel Stern, an adopted citixsn of
German birth, now of Boston, was one of the
leaders of the German movement of 1843, in
which, also, Shurlz figured. He challenges
the latter to a discussion from which h- (uni
ting “bruggaéocio to pollrconcry”) shrinks.
But- in his letter he gives an insight into the
value of such weak heads and hem-ts and strong
months as Shurtz:

Republican candidate for the Presidency. Subtractthese
voles from the vote given for the Republican candidate
for Governor, and it leaves Lincoln six thousand in the
minority, and demonstrates that the Democraticelecto

We esiimate the entire vote of the State at 252,000,
of which Lane rPceivcd 29,000 and Hendricks 123,000.

Afi‘eclion for a dog:-'l‘he following extraordi
nary star}; is in circulnlieu. Au aged gentle
man, a. planter in one of lhe Southern States,
has just died, leaving a. fortune of $lOO,OOO,
which is to be disposed of accoroding to the
provisions of his will, and that document is as
“I hequenth all my effects to the children of
my brother, on the following conditions: De
sirous of marking my sense of the service which
my Newfoundland dog rendered me in saving
my life one day when l was drowning, and
wishing also to provide for my housekeeper, I
appoint. my said housekeeper nurse. tutor and
mother to my dog. My natural ht-irs shall, on
this account, pay to her, out of my entire for
tune, a daily sum in the following manner:
The daily payment. shall continue so long as
the dog shall live, but not one second longer.
During the first year after my tic-cease, or for
so much of it as the dog shall live, my house
keeper shall receive $5 a. day; the second year
she shall receive. $lO adny; the third yearsls;
and so on, until the death of the dog. In the
course of the month in which the dog shall die,
there shall he paid to my housekeeper for every
day of the dog’s existence $125 On the day
of his death she shall he paid per hour of the
dog’s life, $25“. In the lest hour of his life
she shall receive for every minute that he lives,
$375; and. for every second of the last minute,

entertained for his dog sentiments similar to
Byron’s. What, the heirs will think or do we
cannot say, but. we shall be much surprised

Inconstant Bride.—-Two young ladies of Highls
town, Mercer county, had been wooed and so
for won by a pair of ardent suitors as to have
named the day, and the spot, when and where
they would surrender hearts and hands. On
Sunday last. at Puinceton. the silver coNs
were to have been tied, and the tender vows
sealed; but, alas! forthe mutability of earthly
hopes, one of the fair ones, whose afl'ections
Cupid had forgotten to label “not transferable,”
had so for lost sight of all former promises as
to allow a new attachment. to spring up in her
bosom, and, on the wedding morning, when
the first: suitor called to claim his bride, he
found she had already gone. with her new lover
to the very spot where she was to have been
joined to him in the holy state of matrimony.
Forthwith he started in pursuit of the fugitives,
and. arriving before the service of the clergy
man had been rendered, the disappointed bride
groom took his inconstant one aside, and
represented the injustice of her treatment..—
80 moving was the appeal that, the fair one at
length consented to marry according to origi
nal agreement. The proud spirit of the man
rose within him, and he spurned the otfer with
contemgyt, refusing to take to his arms the
hearth-es creature who had broken her vows,
and preferred another before him. The daunt—
less heroine, determined. to be a bride at. all
hazards, immediately returned to her lover.
who waited with trembling anxiety the resqlt
of the interview, and, without risking further
delay, was married to him on the spot.~l‘t’n.r:-

Destructive Fire in Philadelpoia.
This morning about five o’clock the large
five-storied structure known as the Franklin
Buildings, located immediately in the rear of
Franklin Hall, Sixth street. below Arch, was
destroyed by fire. The fourth story. in which
the flames originated, was occupied by Duncan
White, baukbinder. The entire stock of work
on hand was ruined by: fire and water, invol
ving :1 loss to Mr. White of about $2,500.
E. C. & J. Biddle, Charles Desilve, and other
publishers, had work in the hands of Mr. White,
which was destroyed or badly damaged. The
fire spread to the bookhindery of Charles H.
Marot, on the fifth floor, which sustained some
loss from water. ,
The third floor was occupied by Wm. S.
Young. general joh printer. Mr. Young's es
tablishment was deluged with water. Several
religious newspapers and periodicals are pub
lished here, and the fire will interfere seri
ously with the issue of some of these papers.
The forms of the Christian Instructor and tho
Uonlimntal Journal, were knocked into pi, and
printed sheets were destroyed. A considerable
portion of the edition of the l’resbyfarian Quar
terly Review were destroyed. Mr. Young can
form no estimate of his loss.
Smith B'. Peters, stereotype printers, occupied
the second floor. They had a number of valu
able works on hand, which were ruined by
water. They estimate their loss at. from $2,000
to $3,000.
The building belongs to Huling & Cowperth

&c., roughly estimated at from $lO,OOO to
$15,000, is entirely covered by insurance. The
fire was the result of accident.
