Why does our friends of tho Gazette,

Landlords aro men who tako tho pipers.
Speculations about tho Conven
tion. John Younoman, Esq., in llio last
"Sunbury Gazette," gives tho annexed
jocularly descriptivo synopsis of tho per
sonal appearance, peculiar features, on I
unique qualities of tlio various gentlemen
composing tho lato Editorial (Danville)
Convention. Wo commend tho article, to,
'tho attention of rur readers, as worthy of
careful perusal. Our friend l'oungman,
' 1 has Leon fortuna'.o and tolerably correct,
in personating tho rcspcotivo members of
"the Art preservative of all Arts," and
notwithstanding ho 'has dealt out some
" sharp shots," all must acknowledge their
general truthfulness ;
Sf Wo have received from Mr. Cox,
Daguerroan at Danville, a copy, taken on
pajicr, of tho original ambrotypa of tho
1 ' , .. ii." 1. 1.. t.'.i:. ! n...
mcinucrs aiiuuuiug inn l.itu ouiiuiioi -uuu-'
volition. Tho picturo is a group of cigh
' teen, aud gives a very correct idoa of thtir
appearance With two or tnrco exceptions
tho likenesses arc very striking. Tho largo
gentleman sitting in tho centre of tho front
lino, with a benevolent smile upon his
countenance, is Col. Tate. From tho ex
pression of his faco wo would suppose that
the Colonel felt quito at caso. Tho amturo
little man to tho ri-jht, with the white neck
cloth and ministerial look, is Weaver from
Dloomsburg. Tho artist has put out one
of his eyes, making him look as if he was
"going ono oyo on it." Tho stout, bluff,
independent looking gentleman to tho right
of Weaver, is Painter, from Miincy. IIo
is tho Daniel Lambert of tho party, weigh
ing, wo should judge, over 200 pounds.
In tho picturo Oeorgo appears to be in ono
of his "brown studies." His mouth is
very firmly compressed, as if ho had formed
some solemn determination, and was going
to carry it out. Generally, ho don't any
much, Lut thinks a great deal. To tho
left of Tato sits Baker, from Jersey Shoro
who was principally distinguished in the
Convention lor his moustache at d fancy
stockings. Ho is a good looking fellow,
ai.d appears to know it. Dr. I'ulcston
sits on the left of liakcr, a tall, delicate,
Irndsomo ynting man, dressed with great
neatness, His suit ot spotless white has
given him rather a ghost-like appoaranco
in tho picture. Dr. John, tho go-ahcud
oditor of tho Columbia Kcpubliean, occu
pies tho left end of the settee. His physi
ognomy indicates an aelive, vigorous tem
perament. He figured in tho Convention
as ono of tho talkers. To tho extreme left
is located Air. Edwards, a modest, little
Welshman, from Pottsville. Tho thin
faced gentleman, with tho heavy moustache
and imperial, on tho right of the rear line,
is Frick, of the Miltoniau. Joke is quiet
in Convention, but very talkative and
agreeable when ho has two or tlirco friends
arcund him. Next stands Price, from
Mincrsvillo, whom tho artist has given
somewhat the appearance of Ccn. Jackson.
He is much a better looking man out of
tho picturo than in it. Jones, from Jersey
Shore, tho smallest man (in stature) in the
Convention, stioks his head upfront behind
tho shoulders of Price on the ono side and
lirowcr on tho other. IIo is apparently
standing on his tip toes, trying to look
over. A very boy in appearance, his pre
soiico among his brother editors his been
oddly compared to " an old lip among a
parcel of half dollars, Urower, of the
".Montour American," stands next a stout
man, of medium height, carclcts iu his
dress, but careful iu conducting his paper.
As to looks, it is thought that he would bo
entitled to tho " kuilo." The portly man
behind lirowcr, with his head cooked to
ono sido as if ho w s looking out for an
item, is Miner, from Wilkesbarro. Ho is
;nitl t.n lit. n vorv snrtinliln mid nirrnpnliln 1
man ho is certainly a food looking one.
Wo canuot say as much for tho looks of
tho gentleman on his right, Chichester, a
reporter from Philadelphia. Wo would,
however, tako him for an intelligent man,
as ho is deeply red R itich, of M.iueh
Chunk, who aspired tu bo tho "funny man"
of the Convention, stands uct, aud looking
over his shouldor, with a slight stoop, we
seo Worden, of the "I.ewisburg Gbrimiclo''
whom the artist has nude, in truth, a
thorough Black Republican. The want of
light did it, friend Wordcu. Black Re
publicanism, Generally, may bo attributed
to that cause. The indistinct faeo,appi-
1 reutly about ton feet from the gioup, wo
! rccosrnizo as belonjini' to Davis, of tho
T , ... , , i
"Montgomery Ledger." His wife would
i ,ia dly know :, h ther d , k.
ing, but tho Sun didn't do him justice.
Mr. Irwin, of Berwick, tall, reserved and
dignified, occupies the right flank. Ho
would make a capital grenadier. Another
faco finisho i the group. Tho individual lo
who'ii it belongs has been noticed thus by
tbo Mauch Chunk 'Gazetto' "Youngman
1 of tho Sunbury Gazette Is about 25 years
of ace, edits a good paper, and is a sociable,
though quietly disposed follow." Our
neighbor, Masscr, is not included in tho
gtoup, as ho went out of tho room previous
to its being taken.
ISS' Mr. Ilazlchurst, of Philadelphia,
tho National Nnnw-Nothing candidate for
Governor, is now engaged iu holding meet
ings iu tho western part of tho State. IIo
is as much opposed to Wiltnot nnd his ab
olition party, as ho is to Packer and Demo

any fusion, and adheres to hisN. N. party

browned farmer, by tho busy merchant and
tho toil worn seamstress, who ekes out, by
her needle, a scanty pittance. These seek
their pillows, and rest from ihoir labor.
' Nature's sweet restorer, balmy ileep"
steeps their senses in utter forgctfulness,
and prepares them for the toil that awaits
them witli the rising sun. To tho contem
plative mind, night is the timo for reflec
tion. Iu tho stillness of darkness, the
thoughts, freed from tho distracting cares
of tho day, wander through tho immensity
of spaco, and at last fix themselves upon
tho Author of all things. In imagination
wo are carried back to the scenes of child
hood. Wo remember tho gentlo teachings
of a loved mother and the eludings of a
revered father. Tho companions of our
youth and the friends of riper years. We
remember the joys and sorrows j tho hopes
and fears which assailed us in cur struggle
forseholastio honors. How vividly nre past
events bruujit to mind. They aro engraven
upon the heart never to lo forgotten. May
we htpe that each new tiial may find us
stronger than tho last, that every disap
pointment will bo an incentive to nobler
exertions and higher aims. May wo glean
knowledge for the future fro.n our past
experience. Hut during our reveries the
hours have flitted past, aud tho noon of
night is upon us. Let us, before wo seek
rcposo nnd wander in tho land of dreams,
consider for a few brief moments, tho long
dark night of iho gravo. Man's life is but
a day. In infancy, he resembles tho mild
beams of tho early dawn. In manhood,
his genius flashes, with the vigor of the
noonday sun. Fur a few years, ho exults
in the prido of his strongth, 13ut .13 tho
sun descends the western sky, so man sinks
to his grave. No longer docs tho roso
bloom upon his cheek, nor iho iiro of youth
flash from his eyo, his limbs have lost'thcir
elasticity, his voice, its music, and as the
last lingering rays of the sun aro shod over
tho earth, and tho shades of niht deepen,
man is hid from our view eeath tho cold
clods of the valley.

Hut the grave is not mau's resting plaee.
As tho sunrriscs in tho morning, so shall

of tho coming of Christ. A morn, surnass-
