FOR GOVERNOR, t
GEN. DAVID K. PORTER,
(OF HUNTINGDON COUNTY.)
The idle litols in I'Mlailclphia.
The commotion in this once peaceful city, caus
'cd by the late disgraceful t iots, appears to havo almost
entirely subsided; not, however, without having
produced oh tho public mind, a deep and lasting
impression of the folly and madness of a few individ
uals attempting to bravo tho curront of public opinion
by enforcing their own peculiar doctrines and polr
cy, in opposition to the prejudices and often repeat
t.1 sentiments of tho great mass of society. That
every man has n free and undoubted right, un
'der our government and laws, to discuss any mcas.
tore of policy, or express any opinion ho may cn
tcrtain, at all times and in all places, if, by bo doing,
'lie docs not interfere with sound morals) and th'j
pcaco and happiness of his neighbor, no otto will
deny. But, whenever he touches llicso rights, he
oversteps tho bounds of reason and justice, and true
freedom of speech and action, and falls into licen
tiousness. It is not maintaining an " inalienable
right" of his own, but infringing Upon tho rights of
others. This is not UUrlV:
On the other hand, in no. case have wo a righl to
'take tho law into our own hands. It should always
be left to tho administration df the proper author!.
lies. To their decision wo should submit. But
by saying this, we do not Admit the right to arouso
tho passions and prejudices of tho people by cither
publicly discussing sentiments which they abhor,
or enforcing customs upon them, by precept 'or ex
'ample, which tliey consider as detrimental to tho
well being of their domestic firesides. Thus it was
with tho Abolitionists of the city. They knew
thev wcro Braving public opinion. They knew
that 'tho doctrines of Abolitionism and Amalgama.
tionism, as tatlght by them, was Universally de
tested bv tho community in which they were; and
thev must have been aware that tlieV were enkind
ling a flamo that neither law nor justice could con
trol, if they persisted in promulgating their doctrines.
But notwithstanding they did persist, and the con
sequences that followed, arc, in fact, of their own
seeking. We do not justify tlio, people in the
'city in tho course they pursued td put down these
fanatics ; they ought arid should bo punished ; but
.at the same time, we dd think that tlio principal
leaders of the Abolition cane, who wcro tho first"
Qccressors: should receive their reward from an
"equal hand of justice:
Federalists of '98 and Whigs of '33 the same.
Tho Whig Legislature of Connecticut lias chcted
General Kimberly; df New Haven U. S. Senator,
in the place of the Hon. JohnM.Nilcs, whoso term
"of service expires on tho 4th of March next. Gen,
Kimberly is endorsed by tho whigs throughout the
country as beinc sound and unchanging in his
whig principles." This is true. Gen. Kimberly
was a Federalist of tho John Adam's school, and
still glories in the principles of that party ; ho must
of course be a "sound and unchanging" whig, one
in whom that party can have the utmost confidence,
He will be a good acquisition to the Federal corpse
in tho Senate; for a man, who, for forty years has
steadily maintained tho principles of that party.

Federal party.- Th'o Democratic party, by exposing
the selfishness of their political career, havo thrown
them out of power, and the course they havo pur
sued to regain it, has rendered them still more ob
noxious. And liko the loafer, they would like to
cast tlio odium of their guilt upon tho shoulders of
