Philadelphia Temperance Nc-misa'iong The prohibitory liquor law meu of Philadel phia met iu convention on Monday of last week, and named a number of candidates for the Legislature. We select the following from their resolutions, to show what stuff the con vention was made of: Resolved. That the enactment of a law pro hibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors as a beverage in the State of Pennsylvania is esseh- I ml to the moral and political welfare of the people. Resolved, That it is the duty of every good citizen to so far disregard the ties of political parties as to cast his vote and use his influence so as to secure the election of men known to he favorable to prohibition. Resolved, That no person shall receive the i final nomination of this Convention, who will not give a pledge in writing to advocate aud vote for a prohibitory law in case of his elec tion to the Legislature. The convention will re-assemble on the 18th inst., to make final nominations. A Word with You, Governor. Will your supreme Excellency be kind enough to explain your connection with the Native American Party and movement in the campaign of leol ? Did your Excellency con tribute towards a Native newspaper published in liarrisburg at that period? and did you not falsify your promises to the poor editor who was green enough to put faith in your word? 1 our object was to raise a schism between the Democratic and YV lug elements which formed the Native American Party and the game succeeded; didn't it, Governor? But like a scurvy politician, you forgot your pled ges, and thev stand to tin's dav on record as an evidence of your ingratitude ! Blanche's bund ay Brest. We have waited for ten dts, to hear from soma one of the Governor's organs relative to the above charge, but thev are now trying to deceive Protestant, foreigners, as the did the Native American party in 1851, and it does not suit their purposes to refer to history, particular!' if it refers to transactions more than a year old. Mr. Blanche, at the time of the last Gubernatural esmpaign, edited a Na tive American, paper in this place, and for some reason, he and his friends a short time before the election, dropped Governor John son and spoildour calculation several hundred votes. Had the contribution in question any thing to do with this charge? Come, Mr. Blanche, give us a history of the entire trans action. Telegraph. A Sad Story. The following extraordinary case occurred in Mississippi under the slave law of that State : A planter was afflicted with a loathsome dis ease! So offensive were the ulcers that he was deserted by his white friends; and while thus afflicted and forsaken, a girl whom he owned as a slave, kindly and patiently waited upon him, dressed his ulcers, cleansed his person, and watched over him until he even actually recovered. With gratitude and affection to his benefactor, h3 took her to Cincinnati, Ohio, executed to her a deed of manumission, had it recorded, returned to Mississippi, and there married her m legal form. They lived to gether affect ionat elj' for many years, reared a family of children, and, as he lav upon his death-bed, by will he divided his property between his wife and children. His brothers hearing of his death, came forward and de- mended the property. The widow and chil dren were indignant at the demand. They too were seized, and the validilj' of that marriage was tried before Judge Sharkley, of that State, who decided that the whole'iuatter was a fraud upon the law of slavery that the property belonged to the collateral heirs. His widow was sold by the surviving brothers, the chil dren were bid off at public auction, and both mother and children now toil in chains or sleep in servile graves. BniTALitv Personified. The Baltimore Pariot of July "list, says : Wc learn from Capt. Hewell, of the Middle Watch Station, that a man came to the loek-uii last, evening and claimed shelter for the night under cir cumstances of a peculiar nature. His head was completely shaved, not a vestige of hair leh)g upon the cranium in fact, nothing vis ible but the bare scalp. His back was one mass of coagulated blood, caused, he said, bv fifty stripes being inflicted upon him at Fort jlcllenry. In answer to questions from the captain, he stated that he had been a soldier in the U. S. Army, stationed at FortMcIIenry, and that he had deserted, and on being ar rested was sentenced to have his head shaved, to receive fifty lashes upon the bare back, and be drummed out of the service, which had ac cordingly be.cn done. Since writing the above we have learned that the name of the mutilated man is Patrick Kelly. We also understand that the two buglemen who were detailed to lash him are now under arrest because they did not lay on the lash with more severitv. It is said they will also be punished. Tite Importance or Voting. In announc ing the result of the late election in North Car olina, the Faycttevllle Observer states that the contest for the Legislature was exceedingly close. In Bladen county, Mr. McDugald was beaten by 22 votes: in Sampson, 3fr. Slocum by 7; in Forsythe, the Whig candidates bv less than 20; in Washington and martin, the Whig Senator by 23; in Craven, by o; in Brunswick, by 2o; in Chowan, by 2; in Pitt, one of the Democrats is elected by three votes, another by one, and a Whig hy four; and in many oth er counties the Whigs have lost by similar small majorities. "Red Spirits axd White." All parties are invited to come into the democratic fold, and aid in the election of Bigler, Black & Co., next uctouer. JKcv. John Chambers will mus ter the temperance men, Gov. Bisler will take care of both sides of the Nebraska bill. Mott will muster the Know-Nothings, Charley Urowii will take care of the "Furriners." and Judge Black can summon the Spirit-Rappers, it tneir aid should le required. If everybody votes for Bigler, he will be elected bevond doubt. Chester Republican. AMERICAN STATE TICKET. WK GOVERNOR, BENJAMIN RUSH BRADFORD, , Of Beaver County. FOR SCPREME JITGE, THOMAS II.

Mr. Hacghenbekry was the senior clergyman on the Clearfield circuit, and in his death, the com munity have sustained one of those serious bereave ments, the design of which only the iuscrutiblo wisdom of Providence can understand. He was originally from Huntingdon county, and during bis residence among our people, he won tho re spect and love, not only of his own congregation, but of all classes of the community. His 'walk and conversation' were characterised by all the virtues that adorn tho christian, and All the en dearments that cluster around the name of a man uid a gentleman. It miht truly be said of him None knew him but to love him None named him but to prai.se." He was a kind and attentive Paitor, a good neighbor, a high minded and worthy citizen. Be fulfilled his destiDy on earth, and having been in strumental in gaining many souls for his Redeem er's Kingdom, he haa taken his flight to that bet ter Land. There, after they, like him, 'have fought thegood fight,' and conquered the last great enemy, his family, brethren and friends will again meet him, with many glittering jewels iu the crown of his rejoicing.

We congratulate our subscribers and the reading public generally, on the cheapness with which they can now receive our reprints bv mail. The postage hitherto though gradually reduced since 184 4 has always operated as a dis couragement to their circulation in places inac cessible by expresses or other modes of regular private conveyance. Hence, as yet they have ob tained but a comparative meagre mail circulation. We hope now that the postage is merely aomitud, a new impetus will be given to these valuable works, and that no Post Office within the United States will remain unvisited by at least one copy of the four Reviews and Black woods Magazine. " The Postage on Blackwood and the four Reviews is now but 72 cents a year, and the subscription price is but 3. and when taken with anv of the four Reviews but 52, a if ear.
