THE 13.E.E0bEAOY Aft D TIM TAX quEsTiori. 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were issued it was done with a prospect and a hope of gain, and not of loss ; they know that the subscriptions were originally made in good faith, and that those who purchased the bonds ; --- or at least most of them, did so in good faith; they know that the investment has proved a failure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 by 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 material reported. 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 ocese of Pennsylvania. The attendance was 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 Never tillacties. 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 language:— . . "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 our county. 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 ue compared with what they will be, if a sue- I taming hand is stretched out and they are kept alive. 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 istration. 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 Mr. Tomer and his compatriots thought upon railroad matters last year. It is what sensi ble people think. Whose opinions have ohan ged ? Certainly not the opinions of those who are charged with being in the railroad interest. There are other gentle. men beside Mr. Tomer who took an active part in ignoring the Democratic principles and Democratic usages in the Convention whose names are also of record ou this subject. We might mention their names, but refrain. A little examination will show that the press has Lonna! (slid inure consistent than the office holders, office seekers, and demagog,ttes, who have made the attempt to sacrifice the Democratic. party On the 14th inst., a grand barbecue was given at Craytonvillo, S. C., in honor of the lion. James L. Orr, Speaker of the Hove of Representatives. In the course of his speech un the occasion ho took bold and decided ground against the proposition to re-open the Slave trade as against the interests as well as the policy of the South, anal commented upon the folly of the late Southern Commerrial Convention in attempting to agitate the sub ject. He also alluded to the pending contest in Illinois, and declared that ho would infin itely prefer to see Douglas a Senator rather than Lincoln, and closed with a feeling ex., hortation in favor of the preservation of the Union. 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 ocratic- party. 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 --0---- —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.
