Tliii Sacra lli t xtviN a.—The meeting of the friends
of FRO/tots R Sansa, held at the Washington Ho
tel; on Friday evening, was one of the old fashioned
gatherings of the democracy, in which the heart and
et , cl of th. , audien'en were warmly committed in favor
of the objest that called them together. Many of the
"old, consistent demacratsfrom the c.rantry, who have,
since the days of Jefferson, pursued the plain, clear,
honest course of democracy, and who were foremost
among the hosts who rai H r dto the support of Jackson,
were present and joined onthaiia , :tically in the pro
ceedings. The meeting was ably addres , ed by Messrs
Kr.r.a., and MAGRAW, and th:fir rem - trk3 in favor of the
nomination o FR.A5.7.15 R SBLINg ware warmly re
" Tended to by the vast assemblage.
Thii ie the second indicatioo that ha: given in
Allegheny county on the Gubernatotial qurstim within
a short time, and from L'ae 'thunder of the pflopie" on
both a - ....e.asions, we thick no parson can doubt now
bat 5i1.11 . 113 13 TIE: MAX. At th. it f.,..tivals and pnb
lic tb2 people of Alle;irmy have p:oclai.ned
'heir preference forFaAscts R Sri UNK, and we be
lieve the resolution pledging the co Lary for one
gandntajority, if he ihoald be clad' late, will bo
made good next October.

ever in c loanco we may have to s;co .- .! him an lElora

him to bo th^ ch of thn peopla, and at exponents
ofthe sentiments of the d.milcracy we deem it our do
yto lend our aid in pronlainilog the a 'nest and well
ascertained preference of the party.
We can assure our readers, tlvit h li.`Pit received
Irm - a other portions of the State, there is not the slight
est doubt of Mr SU l; K's nominnthm if the real voice
or the Envie is permitted to be heard, and we are cer

REGi:LATiKG TH le CURRENCY. — Our exchange pa-'
pets says: that the whigs arc getting to be as shy of
these words al they are of burl r: but we must ne
vertheless otteasionally disturls tileii• nerVeS, by remind
ing teem of their old sayings. Every body knows that
through all the bank war, the cry was, that the ex
changes fiever could be regained witheut a national
money despot; but the dem cer ,:s on the other hand
contended that the free !twit of trade, like the free
laws of Republic, were better for the exchanges and
every thing else, than any money king. This was the
great q testion that divided money monarchists
o i the one side, the unbought dem )ereey oa tha other.
Th question is now settled; the exchanges never were
s r staple. and so unif trmly good, daring the reign of
the United States Bank, as they have been since.—
We clip the following as the present specie rates, from
the Jout nal of Corn Tierce.' It will be scan, that on the
principtl pointa of the Somb, New Orleans and INIo
bile, instead of there being a discount a formerly, there
is now a prerniu:n of at least one per cent in on r fa
vor. Tait is, a northern manufacturer or trader, who
has soil :is toads in those markets, and has $lOOO
lying there n: the avails, can not only receive the spe
cie for it in New York with rat disc.:et:lt, but will get
$lOlO for the a.rn sun:. This never happened while
the United States Bank win in existence. On all uth--
er points, it will also be seen the rates are altogether
!invert:n:la they used to Le uni?.f the United States
Batik. We ask the attention of business men, wheth
er whigs or democrats, to these figures. It has tam
ed out in this, as on every other great question that
has ewer divided the public mind, the democrats
in the end came out right; and the federalists, instead
of owning it; run off to something e'.se—:u be proved
wrong there also, when tested by experience.

EXTRAORDINARY FEAT.—The Limerick Reporter
siys that a man named famed for many sur
prising acts Of - pedestrianism, undertOok to walk forty
miles in nine hours. The place marked out was from
the head of the Military walk to near Rallinacurra
pike, half a mile. What makes this feat loon, extra
ordinary is, that twenty of the forty miles were per
formed backward. He began at twenty minutes post
Irina, and concluded at about balf-past tire, thus accom
,Flishing his task in abouteight hours and tea minutes,
'being fifty less than tho ti ne speciiied. At the con
clusion he was loudly cheered, A collection was
made during the day, and it is understood the officers
.of the garrison subscribed a liberal sum. 3,l'Mullen
is an Irishman. Thousands of persons congregated
cluring-the day to witness this singular feat of pedes.-
WESIZRN W.treas.—We are pleased to learn from
.our Cincinnati papers, that the citizens of the west
are early moving in relation to the improvement of
the western Rivers. A meeting has been held in Cin
cinnati, at which it was resolved to memorialize Con
gress on the subject. Thirteen states of this Union
are directly interested in the navigation of these waters,
and if theysend forth their united appeal, it cannot he
disregarded. Speaking of this mov:Nr.ent a Cincin
nati paper sayst--
"We hope our sister cities on the Lake and Ins.g
the Western !livers, everywhere, will make a similar
movement and that the leading press ()fine West, es
- pcpially that portion of it at the seats of government
of the various States, will urge our Legislatures to net
promptly on the subject.
It is time that we should preseat a bold front, and
take a decided stand, as regards these great interests.
'We brow tke pocer if we are weittd. Let that uni
on be manifested this winter, and we shall have more
attention paid to oar home affairs both by out own re
9,reeppituptres, and the representatives of the Union."

rend, was unanimously agreed mot—
Reso!red, That t h e petiple of Allegheny county do
hereby most cordially present to the state convention
robe held on the 4th of March next. Francis R. Shtudt
as theit choice &A candidate for Governor. and, if ho
receive the nomination, do pledge themselves to give
him a most cheerful, hearty and enthusiastic support:
Because•, we believe that there is no man in the state,
who has been named as a candidate for the office, who
is so well qualified to perform it s duties—
Because, we believe that there is no man in the
state of purer virtue, more honorable principles. more
unblemished reputation, and more amiable character,
whether we consider his public or his privnto life—
Because, %% c have confidence in the sterling purity
of his democrtioiiii principles, well tried and proved in
the fiercest fires of political strife—
Because, we have confidence that his democracy
does not depend on the temporary ascendancy of pis
litiral parties, 01 the temporary popularity of new avid
changing opinions. nor arise from accidental attach
ment to a particular party; but flows from the kilid.,.t
fee inns of humanity, nourished a7.d cultivated in him
from his earliest infancy—
Because, we have colificience that his democracy is
too firm nod too lofty to he undermined or overtopped
by the insidious- encroachments or ttrrogant assump
tions of federal heresies, or aristocratic monopolies—
Because, we believe that his election would he a
free will offering" of an enthusiastic people to Itizh
but humble and unpretending worth, imattended by
any of the ostentatious trappings of wealth and pow
Decruse, we owe him, as a people, a debt of grati
tude for the heroic stand which he took in the from
rank of the democratic host in the fearful strife of 113 . 38;
when he nobly dared, in the face of swords, and mus
kets, rind cannons. and all the panoply of political and
military power, to stand forward in favor of liberty and
the constitution, and to assist in their defence when
assailed in their most vital parts—
Because, we believe that a large majority of the
people, who attend to politics only so far us is neces
sary for the public good, prefer Francis R. Shunk to
any other into that can be named, and point to him as
one of themselves, and one to whose honesty, irmness,
intelligence and care they can cheerfully and cuutident
ly commit the public interest,
Because, we b-heve the west has claims upon the
rest of the state which should not be resisted when we
ask to have, at least for once, a western democratic
governor, and when we cbbose as our candidate one
born and bred in an esetern county, but who, in his
short residence among us, has been cordially received
"as one brought up with us"—has secured. by his in
telligence and virtue, our utmost confilence, and by his
kindness of heart has attached us to him by bonds of
affection which tenant easily be severed.
&value, we believe hie name isdear to the demo-

cmcy of Pennsylvania, and that ho has never done any
thing that has rendered him obnoxious to any portion
of the party—
in the approaching highly important .con
test of 1849. v e expect to struggle against the force of
the most popular man of the opposition fur President
and the must popular man for Governor, and we must
+-cot risk our success on a doubtful candidate, or one
1 who can receive but n lukewarm support from any
pottier of the party—we must select our strongest
man, and with Francis R. Shank. as the people's can
, didato, we are sure we can bent all the hosts of the
i opposition, no matter bow fortified, arrayed or combi.
Because, we believe with Francis R. Shank as our
candidate, we can recall to our ranks the old demo
crats who have of late years acted with the opposition
—crush the power of federalism in Allegheny county
—re-establish the ascendancy of COMM principles.
and secure a permanent democratic majority.
R/solvcd, That we ! l ive to Francis It. - Shard: the
Pledge of all our might in his support, Ind to our
fi Heads in the state the sure promise of a thousand
majority in old Allegheny.
In the course of the evening WILSON M'CANDLESS,
Esq., was loudly called for. A gaotleman present sta

sence which was triumphantly applauded.

When politiciaas talk about,
Who next the State shall rule, sirs?
They're sure to e.iak nod blink and name
One of their crafty' school, sirs;
But w 1 1 ,39 the people—as is right,
The question closely scan, sirs,
In thunder tones you hear them shout,
"Old Stu: K'S the very man, sirs...

But then we want one or oursolves.
To fill the highest place, sirs;
Let politicians name !Lir choice,
We know their very plan, sirs,
To check the plundering now abroad,
"Old SHUN les the very man, sire
The farmers who attend the plough,
And toil by day and night, sirs,
By tricks of politicians find
Their purses getting light, sirs
Mechanics, too, arc asking who,
Extravagance will barn, sirs,
And the echo answers from the hills,
•"Oid Stiesx's the very man, sirs!"
Let rule and ruin, banhers scheme,
With rags to cheat us all, sirs,
We'll hare a clause to make them pay,
When honest m ni shall call, sirs:—
We think we Knair who'll lend his aid,
To consummate this plan, sirs,
The "Smulie Tuwn" boys indeed, hare said,
'•Old SHUSKS the very man, sirs!"

poadent of the New York Courier say=:—"At the
November term of the Superior Court fur the Southern
District of Florida, eight negroes were indicted for
minder and rubbery. They are the same who fled
from St. Augastine come time past with a sail boat.
They wont to Winans., Cape Florida, where they re
mained some time, during which they entered the
house of one Geeren. and in the presence of two chil
dren, the one 10 and the other 6 years old, wok what
ever they found and wanted and then went away. Mr.
Geeren, on his return, learning what had transpired,
took his gun and pursued, and soon after, the children
heard the reports of guns. Mr. Geeren was afterwards
found dead, having been shot. But the nezroes have
arrived safely at Nassau. It it the intent& of the au
thmitiei here to have them demanded of the British
Government as fugitvica from justice. The above de
tailed facts, I believe are the substance of what was
disclosedhefure the GrandJurv."
