Enrrout.u. coxvTforx.—A conven
tion of the edito - zial fraternity. of Central
l'eunsylvania, will be held at Bellefonte, on
Friday the Sth day of January, ISO,. for
the double purpose of celebrating the anni
versary of the battle of New' Orleans, and
ogrecin: , upon a scale of prices for adver
tising and job work, to be hereafter
adhered to. It is expected, of
conr:;e, that a "good time" will 'be inciden

The above call for an 'ieditorial
convention, is being widely circula
ted ; and it is confidently expected,
will *nit in such a gathering of
the "knights of the quill," as will
throw far iiito the shade any similar
convention heretofore held in the
State. The free use of the town
hall has been kindly tendered for
the occasion.. The deliberations will
be of such a character, as cannot fail
to benefit the fraternity. Editors,
as allthe world knows, ate sociable
animals, and are disposed to look up
on the bright side of life, so that we
may look forward to a pleasant time:
ern NExii: GOVERNOR
It must oe not a little gratifying
to Gov. Geary, and his numerous
friends, to see the unanimity with
whiek the Press of the State urge
his re-election. Out opinion, which
we base upon the tone of our Re
publican exchanges, is, that he will
be nominated by acclamation, while
his election will be effected by a Ma
jority more nearly unanimous than
that given any Gubernatorial candi
date for many years. It is an ad
mitted fact that he is honest, faith
ful, and capable ; while his popular
ity is undoubted: With these few
circumstances existing, his election
is a foregone conclusion. As we in
timated in a former issue, we consid
er as the true policy in this matter,
that where an official has during his
first term, done well, common jus
tice to . himself, not less than the
best interests of those whom he rep- .
resents, demands his continuance in
oflice,that he may if possible be able
to do better. In the selection of
the chief Executo of this Common
wealth we should not lose sight of
what is, or should be the object of
our efforts, "the greatest good to
the greatest number." Sectional
preference, or personal prejudices,
should be studiously kept in the
bade ground.• The desire for the
Governor's re-election is deemed to
no locality ; but the expression
which is very general on this matter•.
must be taken to indicate a general
want. here then we have au op
portunity of convincing the "boys in
blue" by the re-election of one of
their representativa men, that the
frequent promises of reward for ser
vices, made them both during and
since the war, were not the empty
and delusive things, our political op
ponents so often asserted them to
be. We elected the General once ;
we will now repeat the interesting
proceeding, and persuade our sol
dier boys that they were jtistified iu
putting the most liberal construc
tion upon .our promises. Let us
then form our lines anew. We have
the same old political battles to
fight over. The identical issues
that distracted public attention du
ring the years past, still exists, - un
der new names it is true, and al
though our opponents indulge them
selves in frequent changes of tactics
their weapons are ever the same.
Ignorance and prejudice constitute
their heavy ordnance ; while the
light arms of their service, consists
of personal detraction and abuse ;
and of bitter vituperation, unfound
ed assertions, and disgusting slang.
This warfiire must and will contin
ue, while Mullen nature remain 4, ca
pable, of perversion ; yet we have
the pleasing consciousness that right
and justice will in the end triumph.
Then too, if we but work as we
should, we can enjoy the pleasure of
seeing our opponents, suffer an un
broken succession of defeats ; and
since light and knowledge, are in
their effects death and destruction to
the latter-day Democracy, let us dis
seminate the truth. The pillar of
Democratic principles, so-called, is

WE are in receipt of a communication

THE LAST SENSATION%
EyEnt, ifewsiiiner,-, writer frimi
BoOlin tom's, his been tngag
'ed for the past week or ten
furnishing copy to his dtvil in. this
case of Hester Vaue.ian, until the
matter has been woo ed up - to a
pitch of subFariity really grand.
Soine writer.,, have become so famil
iar with tt e subject, tint they simp
ly refe."l.• to it as "the case of Hester
Vataghan," while commenting-on the
.of sin." They
speak glibly of injustice; of unpin
. iShed wrongs ; and'of the sympathy
created by her case; without giving
the partiCulars connected with the
inatter,,or anythinglike a history of
..We speak or it, because
we think- it likely many have read
these frequent references to the case,
without getting from them anything
like a clear'. understanding of it.
Hester Vaughan, who is now the
central object of interest, and who
justly merits the sympathy of all
right-minded persons, is, it seems
an English girl of respectable, who
some time has been residing at Phil
adelphia. She, as has been true of
others of her sex, • was cursed
. beauty ; and yet she bid fair to paSs
through. life without ; suffering more
• than ger due share of its sorrows,
until her accfnaintace with some One
unknown, began. We say unknown
because she still persiits as she has
ever done, in refusing to make known
the name of her betrayer. She has
herself becomeknown -through, her
misfourtunes. • • She was tried some
months ago, -and convicted of infant-.
icide ; indeed -She confessed her
GoV. Geary lids for reasons
satisfactory to himself,'and-we doubt
not, such as would prove generally
satisfactory, *ere . they °generally
known, refrished . to sign her '
warrant. . And although_ she has
never been reelased, from,,imprison
nient, her case has not been wanting
the freedom of discussion: As we,
have intimated, leading journals ev-,
ery w here liayd.espotised her. , cause;
and but lately delegation of ladies
from New York, strong in i the sense
ofjnstice peculiar-to their sex-; -and'
with their liNelieat Sympaties .
tided in the interest of one who has
been grossly wronged, Waited upon.
Gov. Geary, - to urge his immediate .
interference in - her behalf.. We by
no meat* hiii)rove thd'policy that
would reftiSe: expiesa . toita`Of condo
lence,. oilers of assistance, or sugges
tions as to what was right, • when
made by citizens of 'another State,
merely because they were citizens of
another State ; bnt the fact is that
the action takeuin this matter, by
the citizens of New York, was so
decided in its character; and partook
so strongly of a fault-finding nature
in its reference to the administration
of justice in Pennsylvania; it was.
so bitter in its reflections upon the
Bar in Philadelphia, and so ' urgent
in its demand that action should be
- had upon their theory, as to strength
en the very fooltsh sentiment of
State pride. And in accordmce
with the wishes of Pennsylvanians
the Governor, in his very neat reply
to the New York ladies, characteriz
ed their proceedings,. as well asthose.
of other people, as au interference.
Those who have examined the evi
d.ence in this • case, are persuaded
that there are . many circumstances
connected with it, which demand
. executive clemency. We do not .for
a moment sfippose that Miss. Vaug
han will suffer the extreme penalty
of the law.; indeed we confidently
expect that she will be pardoned. It
would be in the highett degree, tin:-
jutt that she should suffer, while the
real crimival, although, unknown,
still lives unpunished.
NEVER, so far as our knowledge
goes, ht's there been a• time in the
histery of our conntry, when -offen
ces were more frequent or more hei
nous, than at present. - The enormi
ty and frequency of the crimes com
mitted of late, call for more than a
passing notice. There must 'be a
cause ; some reason, some motive
which prompts the .commission of
the :numerous wrongs, which are
making for our time a place in hiSto
ry far from enviable. Lawlessness .
seems to prevail on all hands ; pub
lic opinion has become powerless to
shade men's actions ; and criminals
starting with the loss of their own
self-respect, soon come to regard as
valuless the good opinions of others,
so that they are left without a check
upon their movements, while their
debased natures are amply fitted for
their parts in the grand carnival of
murder. When men's natures be
comes so perverted ; and their ac
tions seems to be dictated by a bru
tish instinct, rather than by a sence
of right; justice to others demands
tnat the strong arm ofthe law should
make itself be felt. The certainty of
punish went, rather than its severity
is what works the moral reformation
It sometimes happens that offences
work out their own punishment, and
we are pleased to see, that this fre
quency of murder, which is in itself
so shocking; is about accomplishing
its own destruction; since it is lead
ing men to think seriously, as be
comes a serions and important sub
ject. We will hope that these cogi
tations may lead to such, a revision
of our penal code, as will lessen the
frequency of crime. We begin to
entertain a serious belief that this
end may be attained by the abolition
of capital punishment. When we
take into account the great number
of capital offences committed ; and
the very few executions, compara
tively, which occur in consequence,
we must conclude that criminals
form beforehand, an estimate of the
amount of sympathy which may be
created in their behalf, in the minds
of a jury ; they make also a close

Ire then makes al?rief review of the public
indebtedness from 1789 to the present
A NEW 'NAY TO PAY DEBTS
Our national credit should be sacredly
observed ; but in making provision for "our
creditors, we should not forget what' is due
to the masses of the people. 'lt may be
assumed that the holders of our securities
have already received upon their bonds a
larger amount, than their original invest
ment, measured by a gold standard. Upon
this statement of facts it would seem but
just and equitable that the six . per cent.
interest now paid by the Government
should be Applied to the reduction of the
principal' in semi-annual instalments,
which in sixteen years and eight months
would liquidate the entire national debt.
,Six per cent. in gold would, at present
rates, be equal to nine per cent in currency;
and equivalent to the payment of the debt
one and alialf times in a fraction less than
seventeen years. This, in connection,
with all the other advantages derived froni"
their investment, would afford to the pub
lic creditors a fair and liberal compensa
tion for the use of their capital, and with
this they should be satisfied. The lessons
of the past admonish the lender that it is
not well to be over-anxious in exacting
from the borrower rigid compliance with
the letter of the bond.
Our relations with foreign nations are
generally cordial. The government of
Paraguay, it is alleged, has' arbitrarily,
seized two American citizens, aid offered
indighities to our minister (Mr. Wash.
hurne.) The 'newly appointed Minister,
McMahon, who bas gone thither, will-in
vestigate the matter, and the Rear -Ad
miral commanding the United States South
Atlantic squadron has been directed to at-
tend the new Minister with.a proper naval
force to sustain such just demands as the
occasion may require, and to vindicate the
rights of the United States citizens referred
to, and of any others who may be exposed
to danger in the theatre of war.
He anngunees that the Bolivian Repub
lic has established the extremely liberal
principle of receiving into its citizenship
any citizen of the United States, or of any
other of the American Republics, upon the
simple condition of volunteer registry.
He speaks of the recent terrible earth
quake in Peru, Equador and Bolivia, and
says the services rendered the distressed
by U. S. officers were promptly acknow
leslged by the Congress of Peru.
