THE 13.E.E0bEAOY Aft D TIM TAX
From every quarter of the State and of the
country, t_e voice of unqualified and univer
sal condemnation is heard in regard •to the
before unheard of and suicidal action of the
late Democratic Convention of Allegheny
county, in its total !disregard of the great prin-
eiples of party for the sake of a local issue.
The'positive declaration that in tho campaign
now irf progress, both national and State is-
sues must be considered of no consequence
the insult offered to the national Administra
tion by the Convention, and the shamefu
manner in which Hon. William Wilkins
that white haired patriarch of Democracy—
was treated by those who, in politics, might
almost be esteemed his children—has must
justly drawn down upon the Convention the
contumely and contempt of every truly Demc
()ratio instinct in the State and in the coun
try. By the action of this Convention, the
Democracyi of Allegheny county have not
been rendered Simply ridiculous, but an oppro •
brinm has been cast upon it from which it
will with difficulty escape. It is not simply
a want of intelligence with which we are
charged; the allegation of both political and
moral dishonesty at our doors. For
all this we m-t. the Convention, or
rather a few interested wire-workers, who,
unfortunately. obtained control of its move
ments. To our_ readers abroad we wish to
say that there is a Democracy in Allegheny
county which is uncontaminated, and which
refuses and will ever refuse to acknowledge
that the opposition to railroad taxation is the
only issue which even temporarily is worthy of
their consideration. While upon this ques
tion of railroad taxation they believe it to be
their duty to resist payment until a variety
of doubtful questions which have arisen in
regard to the bonds, have been settled by the
courts, still they will ever acknowledge the
supremacy of the law, and when the courts
shall have decided, they will bow to the deci•
sion, and, as far as lies in their power, aid in
upholding that submission to law which is
the foundation of all government in a free
country. In their opposition to what they
believe to be an onerous burthen, they are not
mad enthusiasts. They do not believe them
selves Johifile.mpdens, and are not looking
about for another Charles the First to decal;
tate. They know that when these bonds were
issued it was done with a prospect and a hope
of gain, and not of loss ; they know that the
subscriptions were originally made in good
faith, and that those who purchased the bonds ;
--- or at least most of them, did so in good faith;
they know that the investment has proved a
failure ; they believe that at least a portion
of this disastrous result has been owing to
dishonesty somewhere ; and for the sake of
there own interests and the interests of their
neighbors, they are determined not to pay one
cent of railroad tax until the law has decided
that it is right, and just, and proper, whether
what they have earned by the sweat of their
brows is liable to be assessed for such a pur-
But while they hold these opinions in re
gard to Railroad taxation, they also hold that
every Democrat has a higher, a nobler and a
more patriotic duty —a duty to the State, to
the Nation and to posterity. ;The great, time•
tried principles of the Fathers of the Democa
racy are not extinguished in their breasts by
the cry of Anti Tax," "Anti Tax," and
while they bitterly regret the course adopted
by the Convention in declaring that there was
but a single issue to contend for this fall, they
as heartily denounce the demagogueism,
which, by its appeals to the justly excited
feelings of the peopleon this railroad
has cast so foul a blot on the fair fame
of the 9,000 - democrats of Allegheny County.
The real Democratic spirit of our people,
which we assure our readers i not dead, al
though appearances are agai ist us we con
fess, will make itself heard ar.d will place the
National Democracy of the County in the po
sition where it belongs and which it has nev
er ceased to occupy.
We beg the people of the country, and es
pecially the Democratic people, not to judge,
of the Allegheny Democracy, by the platform
which the late Convention so madly adopted,
to the exclusion of other issues, advised by
• patriarchal wisdom and matured judgment of
the oldest and best Democrats in our midst.
In the " mad hunt after office," those who
engineered this Convention, and many who
were members of it, have acted with the ut.
robot inconsistency. The feeling against tax
ation being : so strong that there appeared to
be a probability that the Democracy could de.
feat at least a portion_of the opposition ticket
through its means, the temptation to throw
away Democratic principles for the time has
been too strong for some good Democrats,
and • some of them have placed themselves in a
position of most unenviable inconsistency.—
They have set their political lives upon the cast
and they must stand the hazard of the die.—
But they must themselves bear the responsi
bility of their own position. It is not expected
that the aid of the political world will occur
in 1858. There is a Democratic hereafter, and
when it comes, those who have been instru
mental in placing the Democracy of Alleghe
ny county in its present position, will be call
ed to a strict account for their political sins.
The record is madcout, and they must abide
The ticket which the Convention has nomi
nated is fortunately fsr the Democracy a most
excellent one, and oue which every Democrat,
nu matter what may be his opinions on the
Anti-Tax question, is bound heart and hand
to support. The appeal is to the law to save us
from oppression, and whatever the law says is
right, will be abided by. We have appealed
unto Cseear, and unto t'L . essr will we go.
The position o f soma of three men, who,
as members prime movers in the Conven
tion, is one which even as far as regards the
question of Railroad taxation itself, is to the
last degree inconsistent. They have con
stantly endeavored to make a point by assert
ing that the public press of the city has been
the main cause of the present difficulty and is
even yet the advocate of railroad interests to
the exclusion of the rights and interests of the
people. They have made this charge so often
that perhaps some people actually have been
induced to believe the bald assertions, un
accompanied by a particle of proof, or even
attempt at proof, that the newspapers have
been " hired," " bought," or in some other
1 - way influenced by the railroads. This idle
assertion, utterly without foundation in truth,
has long ago ceased to be regarded by us even
as insulting to our own sense of independence.
The people who read our paper, are capable of
judging of the moral honesty of our course as
an independent democratic journal. We care
not for the good or ill opinions of men who
are capable as Democrats of insulting such
men as James Buchanan and William Wilkins.
If their high position and gray hairs will not
defend them from the contumely of these
men, how should we expect to escape? But
while we have been consistent in our course,
and have ever labored for the good of the peo
ple and the National Democratic party, these
men who have nova assumed to say that the
only Democratic principle is the opposition to
taxation, have been on all sides of this very
railroad question. Some of these gentlemen,
prominent in this Convention which says that
the State and the Nation are small matters
as compared with Allegheny county, have
heretofore affixed their names to petitions for
railroad subscriptions. We have no personal
contest in this matter, or we might give their
names. Our position ie one of Democratic
principle only, and we mention the former
acts of some of these ignoring Democrats, on
ly to remind them that it ill becomeS them, of
all others, to charge those who choose to pur
sue a straight Democratic course, while at the
same time they oppose to the last legal and
constitutional extremitlunjust taxation, with
inconsistency and being influenced by un
worthy motives. They seek office and suc
cess in an important local issue ; we the suc
cess of the great plinciples of National Des
mocracy. Time will show who are the
friends of the people, — and who are influ
enced by Eelti , Ai ni,itives only.
Wt: have said thus much, and spoken thus
plainly, in order that the world outside of
Allegheny county may know that the Demo
or ,tic party is not dead here, and that a large
portion of it, as we do ourself, refuse to Enos
knowledge any binding fore in the platform
adopted by the Convention. On this tax
question, as we have before said, there is but
One feeling th-nt 13 not to pay ...tit
the question of liability has been properly
decided by the legal tribunals.
But the clouds which the unfortunate action
of this Convention has temporarily east over
the Democracy of Allegheny is fast being dis
pelled, and at the coining election we will
show our brethren in other parts of the eouns
try, both by our vote for the State ticket and
our excellent county ticket, that the second
county in the State has a Democratic party
whose views are not confined to a single idea.
THE WASIIINO`ON DIBWRiC
Jonathan Knight, of Washington, has re.,
eei ved the Republican nomination in the dis
trict composed of Washington, Fayette and
Green. Hurd, of the Brownsville Clipper,
has backed down gracefully, (that is if he
can do anything gracefully,) and the contest
will be between Knight and Montgomery.
The latter has little else to_do than walk over
e I the course.
THE True Press perceives a similarity he•
tween our report of Mr. Williams' speech in
the True Press Convention and that of the Die
patch. Both reports were certainly very cor
rect, considering the gaseous nature of the
Consecration of Bishop Bowman
On Wednesday morning, Rev. Samuel Bow
man, D. D., was consecrated at Christ Churoh,
Philadelphia, as Assistant Bishop of the Di

large, and the ceremonies unusually interest-'
ing. Bishop Kemper, of Wisconsin, assisted
by Bishop H. Potter, of Eastern New York,
and Bishop Lee, of Delaware, officiated.
Pittsburgh F. Wayne and Chicago Sail
There will 13 , e a meeting of stockholders of
the Pittsburgh, ,
Fort Wayne and Chicago Rail
road ,at the rooms of the Board of Trade;in this
city, on Wednesdy of next week, the Ist of
September. J. Edgar Thomson Esq., the
President of the Road, is now in the city and
will remain until after the meeting.
THE True Press is inclined to think that in
the Anti-'l'ax Convention " the Republicans
were very considerably in the ascendency,"
Dr. M'Candlees, Mr. Win. Chambers of Al-
legheny City, and some three or four others,
may be inclined to differ from this opinion.
What does Capt. Ward think of the matter?
Frtal th. Wallington Eiamluer
That venerable Democrat, 11... u. Charles Sheler,
we 7 brought forward by many of his friends as
a candidate for Congre9B before tha late demo
cratic convention in Allegheny county. The
Judge declined, and iu doing so, sent a letter to
the convention, in which he used the following
"As regards the Lccorepton question which is
now a dead letter as a matter of practical influ
ence, I have no hesitation in saying that I oon
eider the course of the President upon the sub
ject as dictated by wisdom, sagacity and patri
otism, and that the opposition of Mr. Douglas
and his friends was factious and unwarranted
by the usages of the party—that it has tended to
create confusion in the Democratic ranks, and
may lead to the ultimate defeat of the party.
That Mr. Douglas has shown himsslf recreant to
his own prinoipis, and after taking the wind out
of Gov. Walker's sails, has run ' his own bark
plump ashore of the quicksands of black repub
licanism, on which I sincerely hope he will re's
main a long time before the democracy will
assist in get.ing his political chip again afloat."
That's the way for a true democrat to speak
out. Judge Sheler never flinches when our party
Is assailed by its enemies. He knows the impor
tance of standing by and upholding our Presi•
dens. Verily, Mr. Buchanan's course on the
K an sas question was " dictated by wisdom, sa•
gaoity, and patriotism," as the whole country
will ere long be convinced.
NOW AND THEN.
Politicians, like liars, should have good
memories. Last year the County Con:mist.
sioners issued a document relative to Railroad
taxes as follows:
The position of Allegheny county toward her
clues and boroughs, as marts of manufactures,
as also its worth in agrionituree, demanded, at
the time the subscriptions were made, that the
full energies of the oounty should bs :put forth
for the purpose of opening avenues to all parts
of our common country. Trade was changing
in the rapid creation of railroads which was im
poverishing places, which, at one time, like Pitts
burgh and Allegheny, had thriven under their
own natural resources and limited facilities. Oar
citizens were satisfied that our rivers could not
be relied upon, and without other avenues their
manufactarera, mechanics and farmers would be
the eufferers; hence the anxiety for prompt ac
tion at the time. Laws were passed giving great
power to our county and municipal Corporations.
The Grand Jary acted also upon presentation of
applications for reoommendatlens to county sub
scriptions, and thousand of our citizens, repre
senting the larger portion of both real and per
sonal estate, were unwilling to petition our noun
ty for subscriptions to Railroad Companies.—
Thus from the very current of events, our pre
decessors were participators in what was con
sidered the beat that could be done for the Inter.,
ests of so large a proportion as was located in
The benefits of our railroad connections so
far as completed, can thus far be answered by
our merchants and manufacturers. What is to be
realized to many property holders depends, we
' think, upon the judicious action of citizens. If
our country credit and the companies that we
have embarked in as partners, are to be assailed,
their credit ruined, and no hand to sustain them
when most wanted, then not only the worth of
I property in the county, bat also the stock she is
I now possessor of, will sink, fearfully sink, iu val

I taming hand is stretched out and they are kept
As respects the liability of the county for the
interests coming due on the bonds that have not
been met by defaulting oompanies, we here state
that before agreeing to pay the interest on the
Pittsburgh and Steubenville Railroad Company,
which were the first to give notice of their ina
bility to pay, we advised with Messrs. Loomis &
Stanton, in conjuno ion with our Solicitor, all of
whom gave their opinion that we were legally li
able for the interest coming due on the hoods is
sued to said company. We have watched with
the care that is expected of us by our constitu
ents, over those corporations whioh our county is
so interested in. We have personally examined
the qualifications and standing of those who
rest their affairs; and after being satisfied of
their being trustworthy, have voted to plane
them in the position they now hold.
We here speak as the custodians of the coun
ty : we have no more interest as citizens than
others: but representing a high trust we recog
nize oar obligation to maintain the faith of the
county, and at the same time inform the people
as to the state of their affairs under our admin
This appeal is not made to aid ns personally,
or as trustees; oar duties are laid down, and we
have sworn to perform them; and although we
may look back with some regret to many acts
that we had no share, still we will perform our
duties fearlessly, leaving it to an' intelligent and
honest community to sustain us.
This is a very sensible and reasonable does
trine, and it was duly signed by Mr. Jacob
Tomer, one of the County Commissioners
and was published to the world with his sig.
uatare. This year, Mr. Tomer was an anti
tax candidate for sheriff before the Convention
and such views as he expressed last year,
would he " flat burglary" before that body, in
fluenced as It unfortunately was—not by
Democratic, but by personal and selfish in
terests. We hope our readers will read and
ponder this extract. It may be taken as what

What Democrats Elsewhere Think of thh
The Harrisburg Patriot and Union, a thor
ough and reliable Democratic journal pub+
lished at the State capital, in speaking of the
recent proceedings of the Democratic Conven , ,
tion in Allegheny county, uses the following
severe but just language. .Let those who
have brought this upon us wince, if they have
any Democratic feeling left :
The Convention, although nominally Demo
cratic, met aside all other issues, and placed
their candidates on a platform of opposition to
taxation for the purpose of paying Interest on
bonds given'by the county of Allegheny in pay.•
ment Of mqniolpal subscriptions to certain rail
roads. This is nothing more nor less than repu
diation. When municipal subscriptions were in
fashion, Allegheny county made certain large
subscriptions to advance what was then suppos
ed to be her interest. Now that the investment
turtle out to be a dead loss, a considerable por
tion of her citizens are opposed to paying in
terests on the county bonds. It touches their
pockets, and they murmur. The excitement upon
the subject runs high, eclipsing all questions of
national or State politics. To take advantage
of this feeling and strike the popular current,
the Democratic Convention agrees to deny its
faith and sell its party for the miserable con
sideration of the bare prospect of a temporary
triumph. So anxious were they to abandon
Democratic principles in favor of the doctrine
that a county should not pay the dedt it solemn
ly contracted to pay, that that venerable cham
pion of Democracy, Judge Wilkins, was scarcely
heard with patient respect when he, solitary
and alone, raised his voice in behalf of the Dem
The example and fate of the opposition should
have warned the Convention against the policy
of expediency—of deserting great principles to
profit by an ephemeral gust of popular feeling.
Suppose the whole ticket should be elected, what
a poor equivalent it will be for the stain Inflicted
upon the Democracy of Allegheny county by
the truckling record of this Convention I
—A trial took place a month ago at Rouen,
in France, that affords a good precedent for ju
dicial aotion the world over. Two fellows, pre
tending to be gentlemen, were pleased to talk
indecently in a railroad car, even after an angry
remonstrance of a worthy farmer, who happen
ed to be with his daughter in the opposite seat.
Ho denounced them to the public prosecutor ;
they were tried by the Correctional Court ; the
sentence passed on each was Imprisonment for
two months and a fine of two hundred francs.
—The army worm is doing great damage to
the' oats crop in some parts of Wisconsin. The
Racine Advocate says that Mr. Leander. Lower,
of the town of Raymond, in that county, had_a
field of forty sores of oats, which promised,a
yield of forty bushels to the sore. Twodtiks
before he commenced nutting, he examined his
field and found it all right. Oa the morning
that he commenced harvesting, he noticed the
presence of the army worm. He out some ten
or twelve sores the first day. On resuming his
work the following morning, hie surprise may
be imagined on finding the balance of the en
tire crop destroyed by the worm.
