This pay has been appointed by the

A considerable portion of our paper has
' been appropriated to the publication of the
memoral on this subject. Although but a
feint allusion is made to the sufferings of the
early settlers, ami the massacre whioli left
but few survivors to tell the ta'cs of horror
ami devastation incident to the Wyoming
butchery, yelit historically portrays tho just
claims of those who ask frorrt government
some remuneration for their services, their
sufferings, and their lous of property, while
contending for American liberty. The me
morial is from th(! pen of Mr. Charles Mi
ner, and while highly creditable to the au
thor, cannot fail to secure the accomplish
ment of its object.

THE NEXT GOVEUNOIL
The following communication i; from
the pen of a real old democrat, who has
heretofore actively espoused the principles
of democracy, and whom we have every
reason to believe has no other objpet in
view than tho success of the, party and the
perpetuation of its principles. We give it
a place without further comment.
Mr. Ingram: Hy acalj of tho Standing

ri.il and Representative deleg it.- in the Mi
of March democratic Slate Convention.
This is an important matter to the demo
cratic party, and although , tlie time allotie 1
hy the call is cxtieniely short, yet I hope
the minds of all arc prepared to acton the
question. I really believe that upon the
success or defeat of our next candidate for
Governor depends the future destiny ofour
party and its principles, .not only in the
stale but throughout the Union. Then how
careful should we be in our selection how
anxious to guard against a repetition of the
scenes of 18U5. And will not the nomi
nation of either Wolf or Muhlenberg be
productive of the same disastrous conse
quences? Are any so blind as to overlook
the hostile fedings which still actuate the
friends of either of those gentlemen? It
is too evident to doubt too evident to de
ny; and as one who anxiously desires suc
cess, I would earnestly urge upon dele
gates the nomination of a NEW MAN
one on whom the whole party can unite,
and whose election will consequently lie
placed beyond a shadow of doubt. Foi
one, too, I would recommend
Uoct. Daniel Slurgccn,
a man of unblemished moral and polities'
integiity whose moderate participation in
the contest of 1835, would neither r.i'iject
him to censure for his individual prefer
ence, nor yivti fuel to hc heated feeling!'
which in u st attend the nomination of bin
whose fate it might have been to have zeal

fortunate contest. Dr. Sturgeon has uni

elected Statu Treasurer bv the unite votes-

with the evidence of gratification which
such an important event is well, calculated
to inspire. It may now hi! said, that the
great railroad thoroughfare, from Philadel
phia to Pittsburg, is half completed. The
first portion opened, was the stale road
from Philadelphia to Lancaster; last fall
only, the Lancaster and Ilarrisburg railroad
was firm passed over; next, in Aiit'tist, wo
believe, iinnviihianilhig tin; inainfold dis
couragements of the times, the Cumberland
Vallev railroad company celebrated the
eompl lion of their work from neat Harris
iinig to Carlisle; and now, with an energy
and perseverance that cannot be too much
applauded, they have locomotives p.-.ssing
twice a day, over a distance of fifty miles,
and show by tin; almost insurmountable
dilliefilties they have conquered, that the
entire connection to Pittsburg may be com

Corporations. By a statement made out
at the secretary's ofliee for the convention,
it appears that the aggregate capital of all
lilt: (lillcrcut corporations in the state a
mounts to over $130,000,000, of which
more than $00,000,000 belongs to the
blinks. It would therefore ecem that the
capital of our stale corporations is greater
in amount, than ono half of the assessed
value of all the real and personal property

Memory. Among tri rnntiy TemnrKfiMc

derful memory, of which my friend Col.
A., whem ho ran wgainst for Congress,

"W linn we began our electioneering cam
paign," said Col. A., not beinir able to
eprak very well extempore or rather not
til all, 1 wrote out a speech with great care,
and committed tt to memory. I delivered
this at three sejcral meoiines, and was a
good deal gratified in .believing that it was
very well received. I had always spoken
first, but at the fourth .meeting, .w'hicdi was
a very numerous one, Crockett proposed
that ho should lake the lead. He accord
ingly mounted the stand, and to my uitei
amazement recited every word of in;
speech, and only changing very slightly, a
sentence or two to suit bis own case. I
neicrl'clt more awkward in my life. My
turn to speak eanio, and my speech was
gone, stolen used up and 1 was left
without a word lo say. And to complete
my mortification, the rascal was chuckling
and laughing as if he had done the cleverest
thing in the world."
