    deed to Gdverher Porter, to tend the Buckshot he
to and quindom friend of Thad Stevens, the anil
bt paving Henry Fiick, to the legislature from a
county that usually gives a little lea than a thou
aand democratic majority. But we are unwilling
to believe that any true democrat will persist in fur
ther opposition Id the democratic ticket, merely be
cause that ticket ia not composed of the men of his
own entire choosing. We all know that where
there are several candidates seeking a nomination
fur the! earns office, aome must be disappointed,
and to yield to the will of the majority Is democratic,
Resolved, That David B. Montgomery being
rcgula'ly, and to all appearances fairly nominated
for the legislature at a regularly called county con
'ontion, we feci bound aa democrats to support as
veil Montgomery, aa the rest of the democratic
icket from the Governor.
Resolved, That Mr. Montgomery's frankness in
ipenly avowing his willingness to withdraw fro m
he contest if fraud, treachery, imposition or bar
raining can be proved against him, in obtaining his
lomination, is strong evidence that he does not
:ar an investigation of hia conduct.
Resolved, That the event of (he coming election
i not only of vast importance to the general inter
st of Pennsylvania, but the welfare and ascenden
f of the democratic party for years to come may,
nd no doubt will in a great measuie depend upon
e political biai of the next legislature, it therefore
ecomea every true democrat at this time to aurren
er all minor personal objections to the all impor
mt consideration of principle.
Resolved, That while we sincerely regret the pres
nt course of the only democratic paper in this end
f the county, we ara willing to award to the editor,
I. I. Dieffcnbachcr, honesty and integrity of prin
phs, but at the same time we are forced by hon
it conviction to declare that we fully believe that
ic course he ia blindly pursuing is far better calcu
ted to defeat the party to which he belongs, than
accomplish any other end he may have in view.
Resolved, That the proceedings be signed by the
crting ind published in the Milton Ledger, and all
e Democratic papers in the county.

r'M. SHANNON waa called to the chair, Jacob

The meeting being organized and the object be
g elated by the chair, on motion of John B. Hel
r, a committee waa appointed, consisting of twelve
irsons, to prepare a preamble and resolutions ex
rcssive of the sense of the meeting.
J. B. Heller, Job Kremer.E. Buoy, John Pilegcr,
Kline, Tunia Gearhart, Reuben Mabes, Wm.
remer, John Snyder, Charles Fox, John Kramer,
id John Pfleger, jr. were appointed that committee,
ho retired for a short time, and returned with the
'Hawing preamble and resolutions, which were re
nted and unanimously adopted :
Whereas, The Democrats of Chilisquaque town
lip doom it expedient to meet in public meeting,
act in conjunction with the Democratic party of
Id Northumberland county, in giving our hearty
jpport to the regularly nominated ticket, made at
unbury on the 9th of August, according to a call
f the Standing Committee; though many of us
eing farmers, do regret being called from home at
lis time to attend to the duties of the Democratic
.arty, but seeing the course pursued by be Milton
.edgcr, aided by a few canal oineere and their sa
?llites, in trying to distract the Democratic party,
ve feci it our duly to inform those officers that they
ire the servants of the public, instead of being the
nastera and diroctors of the people. And therefore
e it
Resolved, That the editor of the Milton Ledger,
ho few canal otliccta and disappointed applicants
'or office in the forks, should be permitted to foot
he path hereafter, that they aie taking so much
pains to prepare for others.
Resolved, That we recognize no other head to our
lemocralic ticket, save that which ia headed with
he two Daide, the choice of the people.
Resolved, That we will use all honorable and fair
meana to secure the re-election of D. R. Porter, for
in him we believe the temocraey ha a JefTeraonian
I Resolved, That we will auppoit D. B. Montgo
mery, and we will elect him, if honorable means
will effect it, and that we will not resort to the low,
mean, contemplialo trick of procuring letters from
oltcure persons, who are little known in the coun
try, for the purpose of injuring their volunteer can
didate, aa they have done to injure the regularly
nominated candidate, and afterwards claim to be
members of the old and well tried party.
Resolved, That we feel ourselves more animated
in the cause of Democracy at this time, in conse
quence of the efforts made by aome pielended de
mocrats, to secure the election of they dont caie who.
Resolved, That -we approve of the course pursued
by our worthy representative in Congress, CapU
John Snyder. Hia unceasing opposition to the
Bank Bill, and squandering of the people's money
by the extravagant administration of the all princi
pled party, baa met our entire approbation.
Resolved, That we hail President Tyler'a aecond
veto aa being another evidence of hi intention to
- preserve the constitution.
Resolvsd, That the proceedings be aigncd by the
officers, and published in all the democratic pipers
in this county, and in the Danville Intelligencer.

From DickentlTi Reporter,
The Monty Market,
We are unable to notice any revival of confi
dence in the condition of our local stocks, although
a heretofore, money Continue easy. During the
past week, the panic maker were in the ascend
ent, and by insinuations, inuendos and ominous
shrugging of the shoulders, succeeded no little in
alarming the timid. Thus, in several instance, the
very low ratea at which stocks hava been selling for
some time past, were still further depreciated. Our
Bute Fives were sold at 79 and 80, or at a deprecia
tion of 20 per cent Thia too, in tho face of the
declaration that there is now enough money in tho
Treasury to pay the next semi-annual interest.
What, we ask, of those who continue to assert that
there ia not the slightest doubt of Ihe payment for
the future of the interest due by the state on her
enormous debt, what can be the cause of this depre
ciation t Money is, and has for months been abun
dant. And yet here are State Bonds paying an
annual interest of 6 per cent, per annum, and for
which the commonwealth of Pennsylvania ia re
sponsible, selling for f 79 for $100 paid. Surely
there must lie something wrong somewhere; and
while we merely state the fact, we sincerely desire
to contribute by every meana in our power, justifia
ble by truth and duty to the public, to bring about
a more favorable condition of affairs.
The loana of the Wilmington Rail Road, paying
an interest of 6 per rent, and redeemable in 1842,
were sold for $90 or $100 paid. The Lehigh loans
payable in 1844, and bearing an interest of fi per
cent., were sold at 62 j, or at a depreciation of more
than one third of the original cost. Our bank
slocks are also down to what we trust will prove the
very lowest point. Girard has been selling at 20
and 22. The par price is AO, but about two years
ago, it readily sold for 60. The Western is at 31
and 32, the par price being GO. The Bank of Penn
sylvania haa been selling at 200 ; a year or two a
go, it sold at 420. This depreciation ia terrible.
The decline in this Stock, and indeed, in aeveral
other of our Bank stock ia attributed to the fact of
the indebtedness of the United States Bank to those
Institutions. Thus, the Philadelphia Bank has a
capital of $1,542,200; while she holds United
States Bank Post Notes to the amount of more than
$1,000,000 in addition to the State slock and real
estate, to the amount of $4.r0,000. Her officers
aie, however, prudent and able, and are no doubt
exerting themselves to the utmost, to improve her
condition. The capital of the Bank of Pennsylva
nia ia $2,500,000 and ahe haa a contingent fund of
$300,000. She hold United State Bank Post
Notes to the amount of $1,368,000 State Stock
The Veto Potvrr.
Judge Story, in hia Commentary on the Consti
tution, held the following language on the veto
power of the President i
"Tho truth is, as has been already hinted, that the
real danger is, that the Executive will use the pow
er too rarely. He will do it only on extraordinary
occasions, when a just regard to the public safety,
or public interest, or a constitutional obligation, or
a necessity of maintaining the appropriate rights and
prerogatives of hia office, compel him to the step,
and then it will lie a solemn appeal to the people
themselves, from their own representatives. Even
within these narrow limits, the power is highly val.
liable; and it will silently operate as a preventive
check, by discouracing attempts to overawe, or to
control the Executive. Indeed, one of the greatest
benefits of such a power is, that it influence is felt,
not so ninch in it actual exercise, as in it silent
and aecrct energy as a preventive."
Tax Revenue Bill becomes a law after the
30th of thia month. For the last few daya we have
received here very heavy importations cf good es
pecially from France, which were ordered in an
ticipation of the increased duty, and between thia
and the 30th a large amount is expected to arrive.
We hear that steam boat are chartered to cruize a
bout the Hook for tho two or three last days 6f the
month, in order to bring up before the time expires
any vessel that may be fortunate enough to arrive.
In the meantime a numlier of cargoes have been
sold on speculation the purchasera taking the risk
of the vessel arriving before the expiration of the
lime allowed by law. A. Y. American.

$5,000,000 ; but they expect to get back a consid

their capital ia locked up in thia way and cannot

llarlich's Herman Aperient and Compound

is no vain boast to say this medicine bus proved by
its happy r fl'ecls in the cure of a vaiioly of diseases
to which (lie human frame is liable, lobe vastly su
perior In the many preparations before the puhhe.
Many of these piepurations are compounded liy in
dividuals who are positively ' ooraiit of the myste
ries of the human system and mere pretenders to
medical knowledge. Dr. Harlich, however, is cele
brated among tho German faculty as a man of the
highest scientific alta'tments, and equally distin
guished throughout Euiop-. as a successful meilienl
practitioner, spent most o ' tho years of a useful life
in the aquisitton of such knowledge as might prove
beneficial to his f How creatures. In ihe pills which
he invented, and which hear his name, the public
arc atburcd of an article that possesses more than
ordinary virtues. From ihe acknow'e. ged talent
of this inventor, nothing 'ess un a good article
could be expected ; and tbo ex,erieiiie of many
years has afforded demonstration of the virtues of
his medicine. In deimany and other parts of l.u
rope, its reputation established. In this country
into which it has bu. been lcecnlly introduced, it is
rapidly gaining the most st sianl'al leputntion. The
numerous eertilicp .es of cures of (be most obstinate
diseases effected by tho use of llarlich's Pills, which
the proprietor is constiint'y r reiving is proof of the
fact. Dav alter dr 1 he. iccivves new testimonials
of their efficacy, and wcok after week increases Iho

IT IS FALSE, that Gov. Porter ever in his
whole life-time, either while Governor, or as a pri
vate citizen, received a solitary farthing from Ihe
U. S. Bank, for anv purport of hia own whatever.
His name ha never been before that Bunk or its
officers for any thingeither aa drawer, endorser,
acceptor, borrower, or any other manner or shape
whatever. He lias never had a fuot within its
walls in his whole life-time, but has, on (lie con
trary, bein it constant, uniform, unwavering,
uncompromising ENEMY. He OPPOSED
the institution as a private citizen, and he OP'
POSED and VETOED all laws passed by tho
Federul Legislature last winter, that were designed
cither for its direct or remote benefit I This latter
fact, of itself, stamp the seal of eternal INFAMY
