Mr. Curtiti has promised to conduct this
campaign without personalities, in a man
tier becoming a Pennsylvania gentleman,
aud Mr. Foster has nsertcd bis determina
tion to conllno the contest entirely to tho
political issues between tho two parties.
Those declarations of tho respective can
didates for Governor have been received
with pleasuro by all decent men, as prom
ising exemption during the campaign from
that system of personal detraction and
vituperation which has too often embittered
and disgraced our political struggles. It
is, however, worthy of remark that Mr.
Curtin's political friends have been the first
to violate this covenant of decency, and to
throw dirt at our candidate for Governor.
If thcro is a man iu tho State whose per
soual character should have protected him
from calumny, that man is Henry D.
Foster but it appears that no eharocter
is no exalted as to afford a protection from
tho poisoned arrows of detraction uud

abuse that small minds can inflict upon a
A late number of a paper called the
State Journal, published iu Philadelphia,
contained a letter from Greensburg, West
moreland county, written by some itiner
ant vagabond, which accused General
Foster of being a "gambler " and having
lost largo Hints of money at tho gaming
table. This correspondent found him
" lounging lazily at a tavern door, un
shaven, without cravat, and in dirty linen,"
and represent) him generally as an indo
lent, good-foruothing idlor, totally in
capacitated for tho position to which the
Democrats of Pennsylvania intend to ele
vate him. Where Mr. Foster is known
an attack so false and baso as this nseds
no reply we allude particularly to the
charge of immoral habits. The author of
the calumny is not a citizen of Westmore
