IT is not certainly known who will be Ihe
nominee of ibe conveniion which will meet
Rl Cincinnati in June next, but appearances
indicate rather conclusively that Pennsylva
nia will furnish one standard bearer in the
coming contest for the presidency. That she
should be petmilled to do so we think the
world will admit to be right. Pennsylvania
is one of Ihe oldest of Ihe old thirteen. The
names of many of her sons have honorable
mention in the history of scieqce and diplo
macy. She has given the world a Franklin,
but she has never furnished the States a pres
ident. She is now abont to do so, and her
voters w.ll have the additional incentive of
pride to urge them to the exercise of the elec
tive franchise. We say urge them, because
V* W w Uiaentvll. aL-i thoro jta orotatna
apathy with respect to the most important of
the functions of freemen. Men go Isggingly
to the polls. Should they complain of mis
rule? "The price of liberty is eternal vigil
ance." Man, in the civil state, may not be
a creator. He cannot make guoj, i'f ll be may
prevent the creation of evil. To accomplish
the latter is hia mission as a member of soci
ety. How can he do this ? By being active.
No member of community can, with safety,
ait down and agree that hia fellows shall do
that in which he ia expected to be a co-work
er. And no mere disappointment, either in
the choice of rulers, nor in the course of those
who may have been elevated by our votes,
ia a sufficient excuse for negligence in us
thereafter. Such disappointment should only
incite ua to greater caution and activity.—
These are truisms, but let us lay them to
heart—The Democracy will be able to botiat,
in the coming contest, of a champion whose
virtues are tried. The election of JAMKS BU
CHANAN will be an honor not only to the na
tion at large, but to each voter tvl.o shall have
supported him.
The Spirit of tHeauucsa.
Two weeks ago the Democrat began a ma
licious and mean attack upon us because ac
cident, fitness, friendship or spite had given
us a few small offices; most of which are
without pay, and some a source of expense.
The attack only ridiculed it* author's jealousy,
because the true Democrats of the county re
fused even to permit his name to go into the
State convention for Caoal Commissioner,
and afterward protested against bis appoint
ment as Revenue Commissioner, since he
bad only the fall before opposed the Demo
cratic nomination of the county and openly
gloried in it* defeat. That reason was given
in the protest, and the best Democrats of the
county signed it to prove the fact of his po
litical treachery. He was refused other ap
pointments for the same reason, and lor his
repeated opposition to Democratic nomina
tions iu the fall of 1854 and 1855. This is
notorious in the county and out of il.
The only military office he ever held he
disgraced by running after General SCOTT in
regimentals like a clown ; and the only civil
office he held ended with an execution agaftst
him for the public mor.ey he bad collec'ed,
and which never reached the Stale treasury,
according to his own story; although he says
be paid the money to somebody, not named.
After being on the list of Slate defaulters, he
was only relieved by a special act of the leg
islature, which can be found on the statute
book of the Siate.
So much for the greed, the honor, and the
money of hH offices. The fact of his repeat
ed defeats explains his malice—tbe style and
language of his article last week proves his
depravity and mendacity, and it would be a
shame for any man to answer his slang which
would much better become some such flash
organ of rowdyism ts he had lately printed
in his office, than respectable newspaper.
As in ihe matter of Auditor General: be
cause Mr. Scott was prominent for Canal
Commissioner tee did not ask any delegate
for his vote. As to 2J'- Scott, we supported
him efficiently when he began hia political
career, and less than a year ago voted for
him in the Slate convention. As to Mr. Bu
chanan's name—we have not yet hoisted
ntues before nomination; but have snpport
d men for nomination whom we thought fit,
and then raised up the name of the nominee
for zealous, and faithful support, as we hope
and expect to do that of Mr. Buchanan. As
to Col. Wright, we have supported him faith
fully whenever he was the candidate of the
parly, while it was notorious here than when
he was last a nominee in 1854 the whole
bob-tail fraternity of this county opposed

For the "Star."
Naw YORK, Match 24th, 1856.
I am not an habitual ball goer; yet when
I do venture to shake the wrinkles out of my
pantaloons, I want to do it under favorable
and fashionable auspices. It being generally
understood by the metropolis and his wife
that "The Ball of the Heavy Guards" at the
Academy of Music was to be the tip-lop af
fair of the season, I concluded to purchase a
tioket, after which I forwarded an invitation
to a lady friend to accompany ma to the
Terpaichorean entertainment, when the eve
ning arrived we proceeded to the Academy.
The door keeper admitted us after levying on
our pasteboard and having accompanied the
lady to the dressing room, I proceeded to de
posit my hat and overcoat in the custody of
a greasy looking individual who presided
over that department. Devoted fifteen min
utes to unsuccessful efforts to make myself
appear pretty, with the deliberate intention
of creating a sensation. Succeeded in put
ting on a pair of white kid gloves with no
other damage than tearing them between
four of the fingers of each glove, after wbicb
t rejoined my lady and together we proceed
ed to the ball room. 1 had seen crowds;
had witnessed jams ; but I confess that un
til now 1 had never looked upon a crush.—
Every seat ol the three tiers of boxes was
filled by a person who had eyes, but no legs
—or if a generous nature had favored themv
with those physical extensions, they weie
indisposed to use them in dincing. But on
the floor the dancers were in afTeclionute, un
comfortable and ever dangerous proximity—
in fact they were as thick as fleas. A side
couple beinsr wanted in a quadrille set, I
stepped forward with my lady and filled it.
Hires feel in front of us was the opposite
couple whilst my contra partner was so close
to me on my left, that some ostrich feathers
in her hair manifested an uncomfortable li-
JJ " lo my proboscis; and when ever she
moved her •><> ' h ® wou,d ,ickle
my smeller, against 'he organ l ues
lion would protest emphatica"" by a B P as
modic sneeze. All being "ready "honC.' s "
were called and the result to me was an af
fectionate kick in my ahine inflicted by a fat
parly in the rear whilst try ing to make a bow.
"Right and Lell" secured me a dig in the ribs
from the owner of the ostricb feathers.—
"Balance Four" resulted in a groan and the
involuntary nibbing of two malignant corns
on my left foot and causing me to step back
and infringe on the real estate allotted the
couple in the rear of us ; they recovered their
rights, however, during "Ladies chain" by
pushing me hack against the ostrich feather's
partner and upsetting him ; but 1 helped
him up in time to enable him to "promen
ade four half round," which change I fanci
ed had brought with it no mishaps; but 1 soon
realized my mislako, for where I had led off
in th* "right and left sides" 1 carried ostrich
feather's mantilla with me—the lace of that
garment having caugbt upon one of my coat
buttons. Extricated the mantilla in a fractur
ed condition and in time to trot into the
"promenade four" and knock over a woman
in a red dress who had come with her part
ner on a filibustering exdedilion into ourset.
Hostilities were ceased for two minutes, in
order lo give the bellige ants lime lo rest; but
"forward two" tenewed the programme of
accidents and before the change was conclu
ded, the set was broken up ill this way ;my
opposite partner in attempting to dove tail a
pirouette into a succeeding pigeon wing, sent
her curls into my mouth where they remain
ed—and demonstrated to the astonished be
holders tha< if the curls were really her own,
it was only becanss she had paid for thohi.
I combed the capillary oleaginous compound
out of my mouth with my fingers and polite
ly offered them to the owner who is so far
from thanking me, gave s villainous look at
me and then made a precipitate exit. 1 made
no further attempts at dancing until we reach
ed the polka in the little three inoh dancing
"bills of fate." Prepared myself for a hercu
lean eflort at dancing. My partner put her
left hand affectionately on my right shoulder
and her left cheek in loving and tempting
proximity to my chops. The music began
and off we started with a prospect of clear
sailing. Proceeded ten feet when a mali
cious officer caught his sword between my
legs and fetched me up standing. On a sec
ond attempt a fat woman gave hie a lick on
the pellicular spot where my dinner was de
posited causing my head to strike an iron
post and enabling me to study astronomy
without the aid of a telescope, made a third
attempt and when fairly under way my part
ner's baok hair caught in the epaulette of a
high private, and making it one universal
demolition. The prospect being a speedy pul
verization if we remained on the floor and
not having taken the precaution to insure my
life, my partner and myself-beat a hasty re
treat from the premises. We proceeded to a
restaurant ; partook of some oysters and ale,
amf then sloped for our homes.
Are again the subject of conversation. The
second trial of Ebling, the Street Commis
sioner, has just been completed and the in
telligent jury (ailed to agree—there being
three or four personal friends of the accused
on the jury. There are several indictments
brought under the bribery act still pending
and 1 learn that the District Attorney intends
to enter nolle prosequi in them all as he
thinks if he cannot secure the conviction of
Ebling upon evidence against him over his
own signature, it will be impossible to con
vic' the others as the testimony will be state
ments of conversations; and furthermore he
will not bring an) more indictments under
the set nntil he is empowered by the Legis
lature to peremptory challenge any friend
ol the accused who may be subpoenaed as a
For a short season has been revived with
most of the artists of the company lust sea
son, under the direction of Max Marelzex.—
Miss Adelaide Phillips, an American artiste,
is one of the company and will make her
debut ou the opening night.
There ia nothing naw at any of -the thea
tres. Miss Lonisa Howard (Mrs. Henry Far

husband has sdverlited to giva instruction in

With the opening ol spring thete is an in
crease of the emigration to Colifornie, and

Col. Fremont has a residence in this city and
will probably remain here some months. His
sudden elevation into wealth is one of the
many examples of the freaks of fortnne. A
feLvfan ago hqwts known only as an en
terpnnug trplorer, now by the confirmation
of the Mariposa grant he becomes the pos
sessor of wealth almost illimitable. The case
of ("aimer, Cook & Co., ol San Francisco, the
bankM afford another instance. The firm
is composed of four members, Mr. Palmer,
Mr. Cook, Mr. Wright and Mr. Jones. In
1844 the three first named gentlemen were
' poor yonng men residing in Nantucket, Mass.
Mr. Jones at that period was a book keep
er in Clyde, Wayne & Co's, New York, on a
small salary. Being seized that year with
the California fever they emigrated lo try
their luck. Their first enterprise was in the
lumber business in which they were suffi
ciently successful to enter into banking. They
are now among the wealthiest houses in the
world. In the financial panic fifteen months
since it is said that they advanced very largs
sums to the different houses which were in
volved. They own sn undivided half of the
Mariposa claim of Col. Fremont and other
real estate claims said to be of great value.
The oldest member of the ffrm is only thirty
three"kears of age.
DavW Broderick who fs a boding Demo
cratic politician and a candidate for United
States Senator a few years since, was a resi
dent of this city. He was an active fireman

possessed of indomitable energy and ie laid
to be worth half a million of doliare.

The death of this distinguished Pennsyl*
vanian in a foreign land, and while occupy
ing an important official station, must still
be fresh in the recollection of onr readers.
Of a generous, self-sacrificing nature, ardent
in his attachments, honest in his Impulses,
and of unswerving consistency M a poli
tician, he had won the confidence, the re
spect, er.d the affectionate regard of all who
knew him. As an energetic, persuasive wii
ter he had few, if any superiors in the coun
try ; and notwithstanding the unshrinking
boldness with which be placed his politioal
convictions before the public, his suavity of
manner end kindness of heart eeldom failed
to snftett Abe acrimony and bitterness of par
tisan warfare.

of Match 12, prefaoing a letter of the Eng
lish Charge d' Affaires lo the Diplomatic auJ
Consular Ageuts at Tangier, announcing the
death of Mr. Collings, June 14, 1855, with

Tbe Kansas Committee.
WASHINGTON, March 22.—Tbe composi
tion of the Kansas Commission is a promi
inent topic of discussion. It is composed
wholly of Western men. Mr. Campbell, of
Ohio, was selected as chairman, because he
was the leader of the Anti-Nebraska party
in tbe last Congress, and the leader of the
House in this, as chairman of the Ways and
Means Committee. Mr. Howard, who is
regarded as an able lawyer, was the general
choice of the Republicans, who objected to
Mr. Dunn because of his eourse in reference
to tbe Speakership. Mr. Oiirer, of Missou
ri, was recommended to the Speaker by the
prominent Nebraska representatives, as their
' choice for the minority member ot the com-
I mittea. Tbe vacancies thus created in tbe
' Committees of Ways and Means and Elec
tions will probably be filled temporarily.
I The investigation will consume at least
- two mouths. The committee are for a tbor-
I ough scrutiny. They will take a clerk and
' stenographer with them, and two or tftree
marshals, to subpeona witnesses.
THE RIGHT WAT.— We nave before ns the
1 Montrose Republican, containing the State
ment of Receipts and Expenditures of Sus
quehanna county for the year 1855. We see
1 by it that not one dollar is due from Collectors,
• even for 1855, on State or County taxes.—
The amoont reosived was 815,508 87, and
! tbe Exonerations only 8266 33. Here is a
1 lesson for other counties. Susquehanna is
' not a rich county, but she has a system of
! compelling every collector to settle within
the year; and the result is, no claims out
standing, and the per centage of losses by
f this prompt settlement only one and a half
per cent. Money end trouble and anxiety
would be saved if all counties would copy
their example.

The Benighted Batch Democrats,
Of Pennsylvania to be captivated by the no me of
AHDRE W J A CKSON donelson.
The Know Nothings hops to gain much
from the popularity of Andrew Jackson, and
Par*on Brownlow says it is arranged to print
the name of their candidate for Vice Presi
dent in the above style in order to make bitn
run well. Hear the Parson !
"It hat been understood at arranged that
Major Donelson would be pit on tbe ticket
with Andrew Jackson in big letters and Don
elson invisible, and ther. the old line Demo
ents would think that Old Hickory had come
to life again."
The New York Mirror says:
"Of tbe candidate for Vice President, we
know less, end shall say less to day. He
has t good name, and hails from the sunny
side of the 'division line.' It is presumed
that in the approaching campaign, a large
proportion of tbe benighted Dutch Democra
cy of the interior of Pennsylvania will vote
the American tioket under the impression
that they are again voting for 'Old Hickory,'
of blessed memory."
The dandified popinjay of the Mirror will
Gnd out about next November that be has
reckoned without his host. True, tbe Fed
eralists were twice successful in swerving
enough of the honest yeomanry of Pennsyl
vania to carry the .Slate for military heroes,
but the third time they missed it—"the be
nighted Dutch Democrats" of Pennsylvania
could oot be swerved from their fealty to De
mocracy, even by a military hero whose lau
rels were still green upon hie brow. One
would have supposed that with their failure
to humbug the "benighted Dutch" in 1852,
they would have given over efforts of tbe
kind, least of ail so shallow an artifice as to
use the popularity of a name they always
feared and haled, but never suspected. We
presume they will bring out their banner of
1848, on which was inscribed, "We stoop to
conquer," for if such electioneering is not
crawling in the dust, we should like lo know
what is.
Tbe editor of tbe Mirror is very kind in
letting the "benighted Dutch" know their in
tentions. ANDREW JACKSON donelson, it ap
pears, has no merits or qualifications of his
own—none are claimed for him, more than
that he owns a hundred negroes—but the
Dutch Democrats are to be captivated by the
,7tme. A shrewd piece of Federal Yankee
cunning, but onfnrtunately for the projectors,-

The Democrat* who bave been twice gulled
by specious Federal argument can nevet be
caught a third time, more especially when
the Federal editors put their intentions sC
plainly upon laeoni.—Hollidaysburg Standaid.
ft is difficult to persuade some men of the
value of advertising, although the immense
fortunes which have been made by it, in this
country and in England, within tbe last ten
or fifteen years, are evidenced by the pala
tal structures which have been erected by
the shrewd and fortunate advertisers in Phil
adelphia, New York, London and other cit
ies. It is said that the average weakly re
ceipti of the London Times for advertising
alone, umount to S30,000„ and they have
frequently gone up to 840,000. This shows
that a just appreciation of advertising is
possessed by the Londoners. The New York
Tribune on an article on this subjeot says
that nowhere is advertising carried on to so
great an extent as in England. Professor
Hollowsy's Pills are advertised to the amount
of 8150,000 annually; Moses & Son pay
850,000 ; 850,000 is also paid by Rowland
for his Macassar Oil, &c.; 850,000 bv Dr.
De Jough for his Cod Liver Oil, Heal Si
Sons pay 830,000 per year for advertising
Ibeir bedsteds and bed furniture, and Ebon
Nioholln, a tailor advertises to the extent of
Large sums are paid in this country, also,
for advertising; some houses in New York
set aside ten, fifteen, twenty, and twenty
five thousand dollars annually for advertis
ing, and this is continued from year to year,
because it pays. Walking the streets ot
Philadelphia a few weeks ago, a friend call
ed our attention to a beautiful building con •
structed of white atone brought from France.
"That building," said he, "is a portion of
the proceeds of an ample fortune derived
from judicious advertising." We know men
in this oily who have built a large business
from almost nothing by edvertsing, while old
houses in the same business, with every
thing else in their favor, have dwindled into
comparative obscurity. We know of instan
ces of large sums being made during the
last year, within a few weeks, by advertising,
when without the aid of the press, nothing
cduld have been done. We lay it down as
an axiom, tbe money spent in judicious ad
vertising, by a business roan invariably
yields him four-fold, sooner or later, and in
numerous instances one hundred or one thou
sand fold.
Some men advertise for t short time after
they commence business, and think that suf
ficient, others intermit advertising after they
have established a flourishing business by
its aid. This is a great mistake. From the
moment a house esases to advertise, howev
er large its reputation and standing, it begins
lo decline. The changes are so rapid in this
country, and the public mind is so constantly
occupied by new applicants for its favors and
its attention, that to be out of the papers
where every body seeks for information on
every subject, is to be forgotten. Tbe press
is daily more and more becoming e neces
lity, and its usefulness as an advertising me
dium is a* constantly increasing. No man
ie wise, or jnst to himself, who undertakes
lo do business without availing himself of
it* advantages.— Gazette.
