On Wednesday the March, the
Democratic Ilatrieint Convention willineet
in the eannit'place,,and
all we can le*n, w& incline.
to the opinion 'that the Hon. Jom.BANKS
or Reading 'will be the 'nominee of that
convention. Judge Banks is a strong man;
an unflinching Harrison Democrat, and
withal a gentleman and , scholar. With
such a candidate in the field in opposition
to the present incumbent, 'the result car.-
not be doubtful.
GOVERNOR POiTER.—His Excellency,
Governor Porter, has acquired ' for himself
an infamous notoriety of late. His pardon.
of 'Huller Citittine, before, trial, for a
gross libel on - certain citizens 'of Adams
county, to which we alluded a few weeks
lego, has been denounced
. in all parts of the
state as a wicked and dangerous use of the
pardoning power. But the censure of the
press of this state is Weak in comparison
with:that of the . press of other states. We
scarce open a paper, no matter from what
section of the Union,that we do not find this
Arbitrary. act 'commented upon 'in proper
terms, and his Excellency handled vilthout.
gloves. So great iias been.the excitement,
that the Pennsylvanian has condescended
to take up the cudgels in defence of the
Governor, and devotes a column of special
pleading in extenuation of IheArime. But
it will not do. The people can not and,
will not forgive this extraordinary use of
the Executive prerogative. .
