paid a visit to While Hall. Passing the exten

were noon greeted with th appearance of the
cheerful village of Buck Horn. Thin is a thriv

wilL-i once be observed by the in-it appearance
of the many new and whilo houses with which
it is ad.)rned,among the most pleasant of which is

"Swift Retrihution.-Oii Tuesday Inst
the "Green spot" was rnaJo doleful by
the tolling of bells for the death of James
K. Polk, late President of the Locofoco
party. The news of his decease was re
ceived by Telegraph. The disease, under
which the labored was chronic diarrheca,

has this ambitious and wicked man been
called early to the final settlement of his
dreadful account. We would, in charity,

Wo are taught in the Book of Books
that for National sins there shall be Nat

seem a little singular, just contempora
neous with the death of the author of the
most shameful iniqitics in which our coun
try ever engaged, that the consequences of
those iniquities should be so full upon us!
that' the scourge of disease should be

The name ol the beastly wretch who wrote

and we hope ho may hereafter be known as the
meanest man living. The wretch who could pen
and publish such an article, in relWcnce to the
death of any man, who has filled the office of
President or the United Ssatf.s, must be in
fiiiately worse than, a brute. If the whigs of
Franklin county, do not immediately denounce
this wicked and infamous scoundral, and drive
him out of the county, they deserve to be branded
with the disgrace that attaches to the author of
the outrage. Let it be remembered, that this ar
ticle appeared in the organ ol the parly, and they
must either approve or disapprave of it. We
have no words to express our contempt for so
mean a man, and so viles scoundrel. '

Soino time since, in a throng of busi
ness, Charles R. Paxton, instead of look
ing on at the hands whilst they performed
the labor, was running his barrow loaded
with Clay, when he was accidentally
thrown load and all some 10 or 12 feet in
to the race, and yet he worked all that day
out, in the rain, without so much as chang
ing his dress. Subsequently, the gate of
the tale-race was found to bo obstructed,
so that it could not be closed, or let down.
The water was washing and the works
were already much injured. Had it so
continued until morning, the damage could
not have been repaired short of five
hundred dollars. Several men had spent
the dav in fruitless labors, to remove the
obstruction, and at eleven o'clock at night,
jjr paxton finding it yet unrepaired,
plunged into the race ana immediately re-
moved the obstruction. I.v his engage
ments with the work men, I have been
told by many of them, that Mr. P., always
comes fully up to the mark, and very often,
if he thinks they had a hard bargain, he
exceeds the stipulation.
Those things indicate the man. I state
them freely, and in doing so, disclaim all
fulsome adulation. By publishing the

In order to give a fair uniUrstanding of
the matter, you will please republish that
portion of the proceedings of the late Vitts
burg Convention, by which Columb'
county was cheated out of her Senatorial
Delegate, and the usages of the District
violated, by Collins and Koons, these
distinguished champions of disorganization
in Luzerne county, and let them, with
the lie in their mouth, stand forth as they
deserve to be known tothe world, the ene
mies of regular nominations and the re
nowned heroes of their own failures.
The Senatorial District of Luzerne and Colum
biaCountieswas taken up. The gentleman claim
ing seaM were Mr. Koons, of Luzerne ; and Mr.
Caldwell of Columbia.
Mr. Frick moved that Mr. Caldwell be admitt
ed to a scat in the Convention, as the Senatorial
Delegate from Luzerne and Columbia counties.
The question elicited a spirited and lengthy
discussion in which a number of the menbei s
Mr. Collings of Luzerne claimed that Luzerne
had as 2oml a right to select a Senatorial Deleaie
as Columbia. She had nearly double lhe number
of voters, yet Columbia had alwavs had the Sen
atorial Delegate. The Democratic County
Standing Committee had a perfect right to select
M. Mercur thought that the fads stated by the
(lenllemau Irotn Luzerne, were incontrovertible,
Luzerne has been very lenient to Columbia. Here
was Luzerne with a population of from one half
to one third more thau Columbia; and slio had
been lor six years without a Senatorial Repie
suntative. There appers to be conflicting state
menis. The primary meetings of Luzerne did
not appoint their Senatorial Delegates but Dele
gated to Ihe Standing Committee the power to ap
point. This Convention was not going lo decide
whether or not they had given too much pow er lo
that Standing Committee. They "have acted.
They have given their man as Senatorial Delegate
Columbia has presented her man and it was now
for the Convention lo choose which was entitled
to a seat. For the sake of peace and harmony, for
six years Luzerne has right of appointing a Sen-
nUw. m Pnliimbioniinly, Whnl rifjhf
has Columbia co. to claim the privilege forever,
if she has il much longer she will cairn it by right
of limitation, and say to1 Luzerne, "you have no
right you have conceded it to ut for six years ;
and we inlend to keep it." Out of common justice
Luzerne should have the man ; and Mr. Mercur,
would therefore move to amend by striking out
the name of the gentleman from Columbia, and
iiuerting (hat of Mr Koons, nl Luzerne.
Mr. Frick said that the Convention of Luzerne
had nominated its Reuresseiilive Delegates to this
Convention, but had not mentioned a Senatorial
Delegate, they had left that power to the Standing
Comittee; it was certainly delepatine very great
and extraordinary powers to that County Commit
tee. This Convention he presumed was not go
ing to recognize such powers in any Committee.
Whera wero Columbia County's rights to appoint
conferees to confer, with regard to this appoint
Alter considerable disscussion, the question re
curring on the amendment admitting Mr Koons as
the Senatorial Delegate, it resulted as follows:
yeas 5G ; nays 't
And Mr Koons was permitted tn taks his seat
in the Convention.
Now, Mr. Editor, I am at a loss to cite
in the annals of political chicanery, a more
infamous transaction than that recorded a
bovc. By hard lying and wilful misrep
resentation, Samuel P. Collings, the fel
low who last year defeated the democratic
party and elected Chester Duller, to Con
gress from this District, backed up by Sher
iff Koons, and sustained by ffilmol's man
Mercur, of Dradford, has again betrayed
the Democracy of Columbia, and thereby
add?d insult to injury. Let such traitors
V marked, that they may be shunned and
dipaed by all honest men.
I aJinn without fear of successful con
trailicton, that Columbia has alwavs ac
cccdcd he Senatorial delegate to Luzerne,
when tint county had the Senator this
being thcusage and as evidence, state an
undeniable fact, that twice did Columbia
c.meur in he nomination of Mr. Beau
mont, although he then, I mean after his
election, saw proper, for purposes since
quite apparent, -o deputise Mr. liuckalew.
Who asked him'o act thus 7 or what was
his object? Cefainly, Columbia did not,
nor was it by her trrangement. Two years
since Luzerne, or some of her most "shab.
by political hacks, set the example of dic
tating our candidate, and now the same
little faction have led off in violating the
usages ofthe District.
Thus, it will be seen, that they, and not
are the offenders. As the hatchet has
thus- been raised, I tdmonish them, in tho I
name and strength of the democracy of tl e
"Star of tht North," to guard well their
political scalps. I intend to give them
their dues hereafter, as I am too old it Dc'D
ocrat.to betacitly ehisseled ou( of my right
and shall never brook an open insult with

called my attention, I would also thank
you to publish, as relevant to my subject.

enough ot this for Ihe )rec'. Had Mr. Cald
well been for Mason, Bowmon, Dimmeck, or

fjCj-The Virginia wheat crop has been secured
in good condition. It is generally abundant and
of excellent quality. The same may be said of
the crop of Maryland.
Dr. South says: "Thetale bearer tnd th tale
hearer should be both hanged up, back to back,
only the one by tho tongue and the other by the
How auk ths Mighty talleiv. We do not
remember, ever to have been called upon, in so
brief a space, to record the death of so many emi
nent and celebrated characters, as within ths last
General Kearney, Ceneral Gsines, and Gener
Worth. Each highly dixtinguited in his war
have passed from the stage, escapr-d Ihe perils of
the battle field, been denied the gloiies of a sol
dier's death ; and sunk to rest, surrounded by Ihe
tears and sighs and moanings of friends, instead
of the stirring music of the battle the blood of
the dying, and the roar of artilery.
James K. Polk, too, having but just laid tsidn
Ihe insignia of power, and become once more.one
of the sovereign People, is taken from among tie

And last, Ihe widow of Ex-President Madison,
in Washington city, and the widow of Ex-Preti-dent
Harrison at North Uend, Ohio. The links

Out upon time ! It will Uave no more
Ol the things' to come, than Ihe thing before I
Penntyhnnia.At the democratic Slate con
vention, recemly held at Pittsburg, Hon. John A.
Gamble, ol Lycoming county, was nominated
candidate for Ihe office of canal commissioner If
a handsome majority; after which the convention
resolved unanimously to support him. The best
spirit prevailed among the delegates, who (says
the editor of the Morning Post) broucht the most
encouraging accounlsoi the slate of public senli
ment in their respective- couniies. The pres.
ent weak and perfidious adminisiraiion is regard
ed with loathing by the stu n and true democrats
of the Keystone State- If lhe democratic party,
cordially support their candidate for canal ccm.
missinner, as we have no doubt they will, he w ill
he elected by a majority of twenty thousand.
Such a gratifying result would sound the knell
ofthe administration now in power, which the
people never intended lo elect, and which d''i-
honors Ihe country by its shameless violation of
its pledges, and by its ruthless proscription.
