• THE STATE CONVENTION.
We have seldOm had the pleasure of
witnessing a more harmonious assem
blage,or one more enthusiastic in devotion
to the principles which it had met to ad
• vance, or respectable in point of member
ship, than the State Convention, repr&.
-_renting the Democratic party Of Pennsyl
vania, which convened in Philadelphia
on Thursday, the 24th ultimo. The at. l \
tendance was remarkably full, every dis
,,trict and county in the State being repre
- seated, and many persona of mark being
present as visitors. Among the members
were some of the most . prominent Demo
crats in the State, and the sentiment
which pervaded the proceedings was of
• the kindest and most patriotic nature. In
the list of delegates were a number whose
names are " familiar as household words"
to our readers, such as Wm. H. Witte, of
Montgomery ; Carrigan, McGrath, Hirst,
Gilmore, and Miles, of Philadelphia ;
Galbraith, of Erie ; J. Glancy Jones, of
Berke; Pratt, of Wyoming. fornierly
Speaker of the Senate; Kerr and' Mc-
Calmont, of Venango ; Lamberton',. 'of
Clarion ; Sanderson, of Lancaster ; Wal
lace, of Clearfield ; and-Schell, of Bedford;
By far - the larger portion of the members,
though, were new men, fresh from the
,people, and representing more directly
than usual their wishes. One remarkable
feature of the Convention was its almost
entire absence from wir&pulling, and the
ordinary tricky tactiba by which shrewd
• managers control the action of large
bodies. "The proceedings generally sprung
from the spontaneous wishes of the mem
bers, and in no respect was this float
more marked than in the election of offi
cers- nd delegates to the National Con
venti . Whatever may have been
char's against previous assemblages of,
the Democratic party of Pennsylvania, 'it'
can never be read with truth of this one,
- that it was anything else than a true rep
resentative of the Democratic masses of
The place of meeting was in National
Guards Hall, a large edifice used for local
military purposes, on Race street, in con
venient proximity to the large Hotels, and
other places of public resort. ' The Hall is
not as well suited for gatherings of the
sort as that of the House of Representa
tives at Harrisburg, where the State Con
ventions ordinarily meet, but the thought
fulness mad kindness of ' our Philadelphia
friends had made it as agreeable as possi
ble. A large space arranged with seats
had been fenced - off for the delegates,
leaving a still larger one, which was con,
stantly crowded with interested Tacos, for
spectators. Above' the President's chair,
and in various parts of the Hall, waved
the national banner, and during the pro
ceedings au immense flag floated fromthe
'staff on the top of 'the building.
The Convention was called to order,,
according to custom, by the Chairman of
the State Central Committee, Col. Chas. J.
Biddle, of Philadelphia. This gentleman
will be remembered as having been the
first commander of the celebrated Buck
tail regiment, which he led into several
important actions. While he was in
' service , in the .field; he was elected to
Congress from 'one of' the districts of Phil
adelphia, where he distinguished himself
' for ability, and daring defence of Union
principlei. In personal, appearance he is'
entirely different from what our imagina
tion had pictured him. He is:quite small
and slender, wears his coat closely but
toned around him, has a sharp, tale faq,
and with the exception of a remarkably
keen, piercing eye, possesses no feature
' that would lead one to,suppose him the
intrepid hero and able man that he really

agreeably disappointed .with this gentle

did him great credit. We copy them in

After the election of three pecretaries,
the list of delegates was called over, and .
one exception only which was
promptly and courteously settled by the
parties, there were ng contested seats—
a feature that has probably never before
taken place in any convention for the
last twentv-five years. The representative
from Warren county not being present,
Gen. J. Y.,Jernes volunteered to take his
place and was accepted by the Convention.
A good-natured, but somewhat disorderly
debate sprung up on the subject of choos
ing a perminent Chairman. Judge Itkc-
Calmont, of Venango, proposed to select a
Committee of one from each Senatorial
district to select permanent officers. An.
other gentleman amended the motion
that the Convention vote for Chairman
direct, and the subject 'was discussed at
consicreihble length by some of the best
speakirs of the body. Meagre. Galbraith
and Kerr were the leaders in the opposi
tion to Judge MuCalmout's metier, and
their arguments had great weight, for the
Cons+ention finally adopted them by the
decisive vote of 70 to 48.
Nominations for permanent 're-ident
were then announced, andllessrs, Witte,
'Anderson, Hirst, McCalniout, Jones,Wal
lace, Galbraith and Kert, were named,
all of whom ,declined except the two
former. But , one ballot was taken, in
which Mr. Witte received '94, and Mr.
Sanderson 31 voter. The former was
escorted to the chair by Messrs. Sander
son, and Jones, of Greene, and, in intro
ducing him to the Convention. Mr. San
derson, whose course throughout was gen
tlemanly and courteous to the fullest ex
tent, took occasion to say that 'he was
highly gratified that the Convention had
selected a gentleman of such distinguished
abilities and whose course was so consis
tently Democratic as its presiding officer.
, Mr. Witte is a gentleman whose record
is probably as well known to the people
of the State as any other man living
within her limits. Ile has been a repre
sentative in C,ongress two terms, and on
three separate occasions was a prominent
candidate for the 'Democratic Guberna
torial nomination. Defeated in each in
stance, he acquiecsed in 'the decision of
the majority with e grageand magnanimity
that entitle him to the highest honor.
He has, perhaps, the warmest friends and
bitterest enemies of any public man in
Pennsylvaiiia, but it is to his credit, that
those who know him most intimately like
him best. As a public. speaker, he has
not a superior;in the nation, as all, who
heard him in his splendid nampaign last
year will readily attest. Mr. Witte bears
a striking resemblance in'face and body
to tbefirst Napoleon-a feature that no one
can fail to be attracted by, on first sight
of the man. He - made-a cool, courteous
and prompt Chairman, and gave entire
satisfaction—a fact much to his credit, for
it, requires extraordinary self-control and
quickness of thought to preside acceptably
aver a . great political convention.
4'3...Sanderson, his manly rival, is the
editWr of the Lancaster intelligence", one
of the olaeil. and moat influential papers
in the country. -Re is said to be the par
ticular friend of Mr. Buchanan, and re
ceived most of his support from the im
mediate personal adherents of that gen
tleman. _Hia appearance is that of a
bland, kind-hearted and intelligent per
son —"one of the olden kind," who alas,
have become too rare.
The speech of Mr. Witte, on taking the
chair, was an exceedingly strong and elcr
queiat efrort, and if the tumultuous cheers
with which it was received, are to be
taken as an indication, received the undi
vided endorsement of everybody present.
We understand that it is to be written
out in full, and as semi as received, we
shall present it to our readers. The Con
vention, after a recess for dinner, pro
ceeded to the selection of Committees on
permanent organization and resolutions.
The representatives from this section, on
the former, were Messrs. Shellito, of Craw=
ford, and James: of Warren ; the writer of
this article was selected as the member
from this Scoatorial district on the Com
mittee on Resolutions. The Committee
cln organilation soon made their report,
which was unanimously adopted, Mr.
White being chosen as the Vice-President
from Erie county.
These proceedings, briefly as we have
I condensed them, occupied the attention
of - the Convention until late in the after
noon, and it - being understood that the
Committee on Resolutions would not be
ready to report for a considerable period,
a general disposition was exhibited to ad
journ until the next day. A delegate
from Philadelphia, believing to the Ca
tholic Church, Mr: Samuel G. Kingg, op
paid this proposition in serptal strong
and earnest speeches. He reminded the
members that the succeeding day was a
holy one lathe calendar, one revered by
Abe' wbOle Christian community--Good
Friday—and argized that it would outrage
the feelings of many pions citizens if the
sittings of the body were held - on that
occasion. • His views were adopted by a
couple other speakers, and finally accepted
by the Convention, which agreed to finish
up its business that night, or adjourn to
I On motion ; of Mr. Hirst, of I:l'biladel
phis, the following order of business was

for Chairman of the State Central Com
mittee - Mr. Wallace, in a modeol , and
neat *pooch, withdrew bis and GiCv. Big
ler's names, and the balloting proceeded.
At the• close of the second ballot, Mr.
Witte's name was withdrawn, and most
of his friends uniting on Mr. Wald, ;that
gentleman•was chosen by a vote of 85 to
35 for Mr. Hirst.
- The selection of Mr. Ward is in all res
pects a most fortunate one for the petty.
and creditable alike on the score of men
tal and personal character. Mr. Ward IN
a resident of Towanda, Bradford , county,
the very hot-bed of Abolitionism in Penn
sylvania. Surrounded by fanaticians of
the most hateful sort, .with ever4laotive
of ambition enticing him to the
other side, he has steadily maintitined.his
consistency through trials andi tempta
tions which would have compelled any
than of less firmness to falter:. His abili
ties are of the-highest type., Hie writings
are distinguished for a liteituy polish and
pointedness which are seldom seen in po
litical productions, and the addresses
vrich will emanate from his pen during
the campaign soon to open, we feel con
fident will take rank with th • mast cele
brated documents that have appeared on
public topics in this nation. We are much
mistaken it Mr. Ward does not prove
himself one of the most active, able and
efficient gentlemen who have ever held
the prominent place of Chair Man of . the
State Central Committee.
The Committee on resolutions had a
protracted session at. the Merchants' Ho
tel, and did not report until late in the
evening'. Their proceedings exhibited an
extensive diversity of opirifon, but were
none the_ less conciliatory and pleasant in
consequence. A large and persevering
peace element prevailed, which was prin
cipally confined to the members from the
counties bordering upon the Maryland
and Virginia line. Several - 'gentlemen
had lengthy sets of resolutions prepared.
but the Committee finally compromised
on a motion to dismiss them all, and
adopted the brief series printed in our
last issue, transferring the
, subjeol of a
platform to the National Convention.
During the interval of the evening see
sion between the meeting of the Conven
tion and the arrival Of the Committee on
resolutions, short speeches were made in
response to calls, by Hon. William A.
Wallace, State Senator from the Clearfield
district; Henry G. Smith, Esq., editor of
the Fultem Democrat, and District Attorney
of Fulton county; Col. James K. Kerr,
Chas. W. Carrigan, Esq., Mr. Witte, Hoist.
L. Johnston, one of the Seriabarial elec.
tore, and Judge McCalmont. Me. Wallace
is a man of thirty or thirty-five years of
age, and bids fair to attain a distinguished
position both as a speaker and Statesman.
His publithed speeches in
~the Senate ere
characterized by, energy, - directness, and
above all, by rare common-,sense. Mr.
Smith was one of the youngest members
of thebOdy, and_he evinced no little em
barrasament on appearing upon the Pre
sident's stand. His effort on this occasion
consequently afforded no opportunity of
judging his merit as an orator, but we
take him to be a man of more than ordi
nary talents for bis age. Of the speeches
of Messrs. Kerr, Carrigan, •Witte and
Johnson, it is sufficient to say that they
fully sustained their reputation., which is
giving the highest praise, to tirm. We
may have been partial, owing' to our per
sonal friendship for the gentleman, but
we thought Col. Kerr's was the best effort
of the evening.
The Cormittee on Resolutions did not
arrive until near 11 o'clock, when 'they
reported through Hon. J. Glancy Jones,
each resolution being adopted without a
dissenting vote and amidst rapturous ap
plause. The one endorsing Gen. McClel

The nominees for Senatorial electors
were Ex-Gov. Bigler, John L. Dawion,
Robert Ewing, of Philadelphia, Robert L.
Johnson, of Cambria, Judge McCalmont,
Vincent L. Bradford, Henry D. Foster,
Richard Vaux, and Wm. 4. Galbraith.
Of these Messrs. Foster, Bigler, Galbraith,
McCalmont and Dawson were withdrawn,
and on the first ballot Messrs. Johnson
and Vaux were elected, having received
nearly all the votes. The former is an
eminent lawyer of Cambria county, a gen
tleman of fine personal appearance, the
purest personal character, and good speak

vice of the Government: in coin or its
equivalent:. This resolution, which wi's
ably advocated by Senators Hopkins. Cly

opposed,by the Abolition leaderi--John•

we were inclined to beliefe the story must

have been accustomed to seeing and hear
