tain the cause, found deceased lying

parted. It appears that be was for
years subject to spasms, and his death
is attributed to that cause. le was

To variolas articles which have ap
peartsi in the Norninj Times, of this
city, and other opposition prints, as
sailing Gen. PAckin upon old Canal
transactions, no reply has beer made,
probably for the reason that a prompt
defence was nnnecessary to p.irty Mao-
CegS, and because, also, some of the
charges are frivolous, others inoon,is
tent and absurd.upon their face, and all
of them obviously malicious. The old
journals and docain.ints to which refer
ence must be made in making or repel
ling such charize.4, are not w.thin th
reach of must persons, and it is tedious
labor to pursue an investigation even
with their aid upon any question of
Canal inanagem,_ait controverted be
tween parties of o;ficials twenty or
twenty-five years ago.
Bat although it mss be, tedious, and
a work of supererogation so far as the
requirements of the canvass are con
cerned, we will answer some of the
charges in question As an act of justice
to individual character unjustly and
rudely assailed.
GeII. PACKER was a Canal GOlllial4-
sioner in and is assailed for not
removing Cul. Ploterr from the office
of Superintendent of the Tioga division
of the North Branch extension--it be
ing al..ged that each removal should
have been made upon the evidence of a
man named, CLARK, Nvtio is said to have
testified before a Legislative Committee
that Col.'PlOaLEr was concerned in a
contract while holding his office of Sup
perintendent, which would have been,
if true, in violation of law. Upon re
ference to the Senate Journal of 1&58-9,
when the Committee spoken or was ap
pointed and made their report, we do
not find this statement borne out by the
facts. No such evidence is stated to
have been given by Otank, and if it had
been, it would hail been false. Col.
Plotter , was not at any time directly
or indirectly interested in any contract
after his apiwintment us Superintend
ent. The records in the Auditor Gen
eral's" office, will 'show• that contract
Toe section 29; Tioga line, which- had
been taken by Col.' Piourr and Ctanit,
was abaudolied before his appointment,
and was re-let to GEottoe Seorr, (now
one of the Canal Commissioners,) who
went on with-the work and wee paid
for it. That was the only contract Col.
PIOLLET ever had with which CLARK
had aay concern, and in fact, in that the
latter was not really interested as a
partner, (although he alleged it) as was
afterward proved iu a suit in the Court
of Common Pleas of Dauphin County.—
Tbe whole charge is therefore ground
less, and might be dismissed without
. notice. But we may state In
addition that the report of tbe Commit
tee to be found at page 1236 of the first
volume of the t sonate Journal, does not
implicate or censure Col. Piotaarr iu
tiny way whatever, which would of it
self be sufficient to answer the calumny
in question. That Committee consisted
ofJ Steonit,of Lancaster, ABRAHAM
31ILLEir, of Philadelphia City, and three
others, most if not all of whom were
politically opposed to the Demacratle
party. The Committee say in their
eport,"after alluding to certain declara
tions said to have been made by him :
"It is but jastice to Mr ~.,en"-.
v e n ofr
aue-leed to show
1.4 e .
the appointment of any particular En
gineer, nor could the Committee disc v
er that any attempt had been made by
him to influence, control or direct the
Engineer in regard to the manner of
making estimates, or in any way to
carry out tee threats above alluded to.
On the contrary, several contractors,
whys° political opinions were -adverse
to those of Mr. P., and who have con
tracts upon his line, were examined be
fore the Committee, and testified that
they had no cause of complaint, anti
certided that his character and conduct
'us Superin tendeut was good," (p. 124,1. )
Note word-is said by the Committee of
the charge now trumped up, and the
above extract does not iodic as if there
was cause for removing the Saperiu
But behold another wonder! Upon
reference to the books in the office of
the Auditor General, it will ho found
that. DAVID WILMOT, Black publican
candidate for Governor of Pe nay van ia,
'was Col. Ptol..r.res e during his
'whole terra of service as Superintend
ent. It is a somewhat romantic charge
against Gen. PACKER that he did not
have Pfor,Lwr .and Wmator turned out,
of office after The endorsement of Col.
P. from a Committee of political oppo
nents, - which we have quoted above.—
coi..pOLLET was Superintendent from
Feb.' 12th, 1839, to the 7th of Minh,
1841. D.tvin F. 8.-karoit• was then ap
pointed, and Continued to serve until
the Ist of June of the same year, and
was 8 - nceeethd, N•ti believe, by SAMUEL
P. COLLIN4IB, who continued to serve
until -typist Ist, I:q2, at which time
work upon the line was suspended.—
DAVID WILMOT drew pay from the
State Treasury as Clerk to the Superin
tendent from Feb. 12th, 18:49, until the
Ist of April, 125-12, and had there been
anything wrong in the odicial conduct
of the Suprin [cadent he would certain
ly have known it, and should have du
nounced it.
The above statement is verified
throughout. by reference to public docu
ments, access to which can be had by
any one; and it will be seen, that were
the charge maintained, it. would equal
ly affect the character of the Guberna
torial candidate of the opposition. It
shoiVs how dangerous it is for anony
mous slanderers to attempt to asperse
private citizens, without first verif),ing
their facts, and discovering bow and to
what extent others may be involved.—
We will speak as to other points of this
subject hereafter.

medicine creating such a stir among invalids
as Dr. Sanford's Invigorator or Liver Remedy.

its wide popularity simply because it does
