The ''Pennsylvania btalesmm," is tlio
title of a Campaign Democratic Paper,
published in Harrisburg, by J. M. Cooper,
Esq. The Statesman is the most spirited
and ablest conducted sheets in tho Com
moiuouwcalth. It goes it strong for Breck
imidgo, Lane, tho Constitution and tho
Save Us rnoM Abolitionism. Mas
sachusetts, the hot bed of abolitionism, is
fast mingling its "coal black roses" with
pure white lilies. Massachusetts can boast
of its prowess in Abolitionism, in tho way
of marrying white girls with negroes. Tho
Census Marshals report that ievonly two
while females were murried to negroes in
tlx State of Massachusetts last year. God
eavo us from Abolition Republicanism;
when its only end and boast is tho mar
riage of white girls with negroes.

for two reasons: The first that tho

Tho other is, that such a whipping as tho

them to their senses, and shows them tho
folly of permitting men, no matter how

Tho Elootion of Tuosday.
Tho election in this State, ou Tuesday
last, resulted disastrously for tho Demo
cratic party Mr. Cuutin, tho Republican
candidato, being elected Governor by a
largo majority. Wo havo also lost the
Legislature and a majority of tho Con
gressmen, and our good old State, for tho
time being, is handed over, in all its do
partmonts, to tho tender mercies of Aboli
tionism. We exceedingly regret that such
is tho case. It is tho first timo in thn
history of this great Commonwealth that
sho has so far forgot her high duty to tho
Union and the Constitutional rights of her
sister States, as to endanger both by her
action. Sho is no longer the conservative
Pennsylvania of tho olden time, but is now
bouud hand and foot to tho car of sec
tionalism, and it will rcquiro a mighty
struggle to release her from her perilous
position. Had Gen. Foster been elected,
tho great battlo of tho Union would havo
been won, and tho contest in November
would havo been an easy ono. As it is
wo shall havo to fight tho samo battlo over
again on tho Oth of November, and under
yet moro numerous disadvantages than we
encountered in tho Gubernatorial election ;
but our friends should not despair, nor
should tho reverses of tho past paralyze
their efforts in tho future. The moro nu
merous lho difficulties, tho greater should
bo tho exertions to overcome them. Tho
darkest hour of tho night is frequently
just beforo tho dawn of day; and it may
bo that tho clouds, which now lower so
portentously over tho country, will soon
break away, and tho sun-light of Democ
racy speedily skpd brilliancy over tho po
Tho Democracy met with similar rever
scs in 1810 and 1848; but they soon re
covered, and at the next trial of strength
wero stronger than ever. So it will bo
again, whether the Presidential election in
November goes against us or not. Then
let our friends keep their courage up.
Tho country will not, oven if wo lose tho
Presidential clectiou, stand more than one
term of Black Republican misrule. Tho
Democracy will again be in tho ascendant,
and Black Republicanism will bo hurled
from power, never more to riao again.
Christian View of Abolitionism.
Tho Chrislia7i Advocate, in commenting
on tho "conspiracy in Texas," uses tho fol
lowing appropriate language, to which we
wish to draw attention of many people
within reach of our publication.
Southern Slavery, as a rule, is the mild
est and most benevolent system otiaborw
tho world, and the slaves, without abolition
tcmntation, arc the most happy and con
tented laborers. But, granting it tho char
acter attributed to it by tha abolitionists,
it is even then, in comparison with abo
litionism, most saintly and holy. '1 hero
is not an evil to character and home, to
society or country, attributed to slavery,
by an ignorant or lying press, ttiat aboli
tionism docs notproduco a hunredfold. It
is the life of modern politics, tho falsehood
of modern philosophy, the apostacy of mod
ern civilization. If ever men deserved the
doom which Benedict Arnold escaped, V.
II. Seward, Iloiaco Greely, Charles .Sum
ner, Wendell Philips, and their abctitors,
political and clerical, aro tho men and
i natriotio Northern men. And vet, South-
cm men, and patriotic Northern men, too,
who aro determined to resist tho demon of
abolitionism in every form, and to make
no compromise with lho insidious monster,
and who simply contend for the constitution
of their country, and the Union based upon
it, are denounced sometimes by ooulhcrn
' U1CU fir0 eaters, extremists ultras ond
disunionists 1 Shame on the ignoble souls
who thus attempt to weaken tlie publio
' confidence in reference to tha monstrous

iniquity of abolitionism. This indirect
of tho aboUtionistg uas dono raoro

I advocates the overthrow of slavery in the
States as tho doetneo of tho republican
, party) and sLamea ,ho rcpuuUcan-Under,
wuo ar0 t00 timid to avow it. It quotes
I Lincoln's languago, embodying tha saino
sentiment. But as far as we can see,
nothing but defeat, and the election cf nn
abolitionist, will ever teach Southern men,
constitutional men generally, the les-
sous of patriotism and political wisdom,
Uu;tC(1)'black rcpublicauism could be casly
, ucfea.CIii xbe people are willing to unite
but the demacoRues and oflico-seekcrs, who
curse the country, vriU notlet them. And

About 11 o'clock, tho pcoplo began to

about ninety feet high without crook or

At 1 o'clock tho Still-Water delegation

By the timo five hundred people had as

A Larue Bear Story. A correspon
dent of the Shamokin, Pa., Register, tells
a story of a large bear ho mot at tho foot
of tho Big Mouutain, It would bo diffi
cult to say which was tho biggest, the
Btory or the bear. The writer says :
" I had only time to turn when I saw a
largo black bear approaching iqs, with
his mouth wido open, di-playing a beauti
ful set of largo, whito teeth, and oyo-balls
glaring with delight in anticipating what a
luscious supper ho would have. I am not
a coward, but I surely thought tho (imp
of my departure was at hand, as I had
no other weapon but a small walking
stick which I drew in a defensive posture,
and gave .1 yell to tho extent of niy lungs,
tho echo of which resounded along tho
barren mountaius for fifteen minutes after.
His bearship camo to a wise conclusion
that a man who could hallta so frightful
might fight heroically, wheolcd about and
trotted off along tho path befors mo."
