held in Irie on
2ATtIEDAY, THE. 18th
At 11 o'clock 0., m.
.The purpose of 'said
County Convention being to elect dele
gates to attend the State Convention, to be
held at Harrisburg, on the 17th of June.
By order of County Cominittee,
WM. A. GALBRAITH,
Franklin for Governor.
We direct the notice of our readers to a
`letter in another column, which explains
the position of Gen. FRANELIN, and the
grouads on which his friends present him
before the public for the Gubernatorial
nomination. The straightsforward style
in which it is written will impre'6B all who
read it. It makes no
. assault on the per
Donal or public character of the other em
inent gentlemen who are mentioned in
connection with the nomination, and
speaks in go frank, !Teti and manly a man
ner as to command our unbounded confi-
Wekthean no disparagement to any other
idates when we say that walook upon
CreptFILANKLIN as the man who is best
tittecl to be . our standard-bearer in the
coming campaign. His high talents are
unquestioned, and under 'all circumstan
ces, he has borne himself in a manner that
commands the 'esteem of all who kpow
him. From the time that as a mere' led
be took the highest honors at West P int,
down through the glorious ,carapai on
the Peninsula, until he was removed by a
partisan Administration, solely on a unt
of his political views, his career has n
one to admire, to praise and to hono . A
Pennsylvanian by birth, by resideric and
to sentiment, his brilliant record is alpirt
of the Commonwealth's treasure, an leer her
people would be untrue to themselves if
they failed 0 embrace every occasion that
offers itself to exhibit their appreciation of
his gallant services. .
We believe that with Qen. FkiNE.LIN. as
our candidate success would be as certain
as the coming of election day. No combi
nation of circumstances could possibly
defeat him. His career as itoldier is as
"familiar as hou
.. lold words." Wherever
he is khown beNs. esteemed„ and it is a
tact, that speaks volumes in his favor, that
those who know him best are his warmest
friends. Anson t the brave men who
have fought und o his lead, his popularity
is only second to at of llfcCtxtu.sres, and
Nike influence whi h they would exert in
his favoi would add, thousands to his vote.
The people *ho hait3 • seen ho 7 efficiently
he has conducted hitirself in ell other ca
. pacities, would have no hesitation in en
trusting him with another position, for
which he is isolate qualified, by education,
moral training and personal character.
„need not suggest to our. friends
throirghont the State how essential it is that
the Democratic party of , Pennsylvania
should not meet with defeat this fill. The
election of anotheiGovernor of opposition
views would condemn us, to-three years
more .of, uncertain liberty, f iuch as we have
bad in the pest, with. perhaps additional
dangers. It would put back the penna
nent success •of our principles almost as
largely, while a victory this fall would en
sure us permanent triumph. We only re
peat whatevery man of earnest bemocrati6
instincts must fell, when we say, that.our
party =not crford to risk a defeat in this par's
campaign. It can have SIMMS, and we do not
believe its leaders will be so blind to all that
- is expected of them,as to deliberately throw
It behind their backs. With Gen. Fluxi-
Lilt ascur candidate this victory will be
surely obtained. With any other of the
gentlemen mentioned,.and we say it with
due respect to them, for we esteem them
all, the tide of contest will at least be
doubtful. We know not haw , our friends
i els ewhere may feel, but u for us, we have
I no hesitation in accepting certain Victory
• •-: before probable defeat. • ' .
iln making these suggestions, we do not
wish to be' understood u speaking in any
..i manner for Gtit._Furrettx or has immech
i ate frieUds. With him in person we en-
joy no acquaintance whatever, neither
have we any with the gentlemen who
were instrumental in bringing him before
the public for the office of Governor. Gni.
sole aim is to biiild up and maintain Dem
ocratic principles, and by so doing, as we
firmly believe, aid in restoring the country
to its former state of Union and prosper
ity ; and if we can be an instrument in
doing this, we drill ask no further honor.
The RIAU the Prtah
An important meeting of the editors of
New York City was held on Monday last,
nearly all the leading papers of every po
llama hue being representeJ. Howl
Gamer, of the Tribune, presided, and
the proceedings are said to have been at
tended with the utmost cordiality. The
. the meeting was to decide the
rights of newspaper* in this country, and,
to express the opinion arrived at in snob
• manner as to command the attention of
the Administration and the people of all
chimes- Mr. (rests offered a series - of
resolutions, wiLich, after . a brief and - good
te m pered discussion, were adopted with
but slight alteration. They affirm the
duty of fidelity to the Constitution, gov
ernment and laws ; pronounce Veal=
&no; rebellion great crimes ; assert the
right of the press to criticise fearlessly
and freely the acts of public officer.; and
deny the legal authority of . any military
oilier to suppress the issues of any paper
printed hundreds of mites away from the
seat of , war. These are sound Demons:l4W
doctrines, audit is gratifying to seoabeas
neoepted by editors of leading Republican
jeipers,lihe the Tribms and Larperatest.
le.Gey. Castln a Candidate t
The Harrisburg Telegraph, Gen.' Ciatt..
aos's organ at the State Capital, is not '
pleased with the course of Gov. Cuaeur,
and plainly intimates that be has been
acting dishonestly i with regard to the
Pittsburg nomination. The Mauch Chunk
Gazette, Republican also, asks the question
" L arms acandidate," adding that -he
"surely is not capable of such trifling with
his political , friends as to declare in an
official document, that he positively and
and unconditionally declines a re-nomi
nation, and afterwards go into a private
arrangement to have his name sprung
upon the convention, and by getting up
a sudden hue and cry about availability,
aid popularity among the soldiers, to
crowd off every other candidate." ,

positively that Gov. Curtin means to be a

was taken with the sole object of making
political capital, and nothing .else. To
disarm suspicion elsewhere he meekly an

that a person Who -is able to make seven

condition. The Governor has played a
shrewd game in this movement, but not
one that will add.any to his characterfor
Immediately upon the appearance of
_the editorial and communication in the
York• Gazette, published by ua last week,
a gentlemen of this city .wrote to some
Democratic friends in York, making cer
tain inquiries in relation to the capability,
political standing, and personal character
of Oen. Fasnicum. In reply, he received
the following frank and interesting letter,
which, we. doubt not, ctim be relied upon
in 'the most implicit manner :
DIAZ 8111 :—We'inswered you briefly by
telegraph, and will' now go more into de
tail. Gen. Paucitttic does not seek the
nomination, but will not decline it. He
is capable in every respect, being a man of
great intellect, having stood No. 1 in his
class at West Point. Gen, lifcCczuse
told the writer of this, within the lest
week, thit FllaxaLlll hid the best and
most practical mind of Any General in the
Army. He has a remarkable degree of
firmneiis, with great coolness and presence

and•not only in profession, but in practice,
by his plain and unostentatious manner
and conduct on all occasions. • He will
stand Up manfully for the principles of

gency; and especially for the- freedom of
speech and the freedom of the Press. He
combines more of the elements of success
than any candidate ever 'put in nomina

will sweep . the State. This County will
give him the largeet majority ever given
to any candidate, and a much larger one
than can be given to any other. He will
stand on the platform of our Convention,
which will no doubt, be something like •
that of New York. He greatly admires
Gov. SiYllOl7ll and highly approves of his

the purest patriots living, - and will Make
any sacrifice to save the Democratic
and the Cckuntry, for he is fillip impressed

is the salvation'of the- other.
Cruel - Treatment of Gor. Curtin.
We insist updrt it that Gov. Ccartles
political- friends in this section have
treated him with most distressing cruelty.
It is well' known - that the Governor's
health has been sadly .‘ failing" of late ;
and that_ e was induoed to send a special
message - into the ~ p egislature informing
that body that he would not be a candi

Now, in view of the bad condititin of
the Governor's health, we do say, that his
friends treated him cruelly -7,sueielf
cruel. Why was it that they could not
allow him to enjoy his " recreation' i ' in
peace and comfort. What if he did let
them know.long before handthat he war
coming,—was that any reason why they
should disturb his tranquillity, by i•orn•
pons receptions, distressing hurrahs,: and
ear-aching speeches ? Did not ' every ZCIO.
tive of charity require that ids "*cre

why hard-hearted Leaguers, did you
oblige him to make three. !Pooches in
our city, one at every little railroaditown
between here and Meadville, and one at
least in the latter place, all in the apace
of two short days,—and oblige ; himto- it
up late at night, chatting, joking and
into the bargain ? For shame,
say: Aid then, too, to demitnd that ,the
Governor should be a•candidate fee re
election, when it is well known that he
does not want the office another 'term,
and dares not take it on account the
low state of his health ! Wicked Messrs.
LOWRY, Buz, DsCser and Wuxi's:, how
could you? Don't you know that the
Governor Iva he would not live through
another term ! Is it possible yOu want to
kilt him? Hive you no , regard far his
feelings? We insist upon it that, the
Governor shall be taken at his word; and
not. be .forced to become a candidate:
Nobody who is his real friend, will urge.
him to do so, after his repeated declare,
tions. If he should; and happened: to be
elected, which we regard as doubtful, it
would prevent him from accepting that
" important foreign mission,'' and cop.
sequently from regaining his very feeble
health. We caution you, gentlemen, to
take care. Should "our nible I.:}over
nor's" health become worse. and hie body
at last sink into the grave, who knows
but his indignant relatives may have you
indicted for murder.
We sigh when we think how much his
"loyal" friends in Erie and CrawfOrd
'c:ounties may have shortened the Gofer
nor's life. The voice of." 14%1" huma
nity, all over the world,. must Protest
against their nnmiant severity. And now,
that their attention has been called to
the fact, we hope, by all thet is , kind,
charitable and dutiful, that they will not
insist upon the Governor's being a l candi-
Elate again. ashen it is so much against Aa
will, and may so seriously - den*. his
health. • -
