THE membere of the DemocratiC Whi g
Standing Committee of Cumberland county

Wo observe by exchanges that a large num
ber of editors through the country have been
made Deputy Marshals. This is right, because
..from their : position and extensive acquaintance,
no clam of thq community is better qualified for
the intelligent and faithful discharge of - the
duties incumbent upon• Marshals. But Our
specific object at this time is to endthe the hope
expressed by_a contemporary_hat in counties
and districts where°editors are not appointed,
the Diiputies may find it convenient to occasi
only say h•good word for their county papers.
They will r of Course, naturally and properly
feel a partiality for the paper advocating their
awn political principles, but they will be doing
a good turn for hard-working but illy-requited
laborers, if they shall impress even upon Dem
ocrats the obligation of sustaining their own
county paper in preference to those at a dis
whether Whig or Democrat, who is not a pa
tron of his local press.—lt might havebeen
better if the law had made it obligatop4pon
Deputy Marshals to enforce this irliolesome
truth in every houshold. But Wit has not, a
word of voluntary admonition can do no harm.
HONOR TO GEN..Terton.—From one 'end - of
the country to the other we hear of general de
monstrations of respect to the memory of Gen.
Taylor, all -going to prove the Ovation in
which - he %yeti - Held' by the people: In Philadel

rangements for a giand civic and military pro.
ceXsion, and invite the attendance of the milita
ry, trades and, association,' from the country to
taire - i - part. Tuesday the Atli of August is the
day fixeciuponY The Councils of Easton have
fixed upon Thureday next.the_.2sthinst., for a
similar procession in that place. At Syracuse,
Rochester, Albanyi Providence, Detroit, and
a number of other places processions either
have or are about to take place.
AN INCIDENT or VIE PASSIDENT:—The acts
and speeches which marked the closing scenes
of Gen. Taylor's life will doubtless be gathered
up and treasured in the memory of his country
men. The following anecdote is related of him,.
and whether truly timpani or not, is certainly
- characteristic. The Now Yo - Mirror says :
It is but a fete days since , hen a delegation
wpited upon him to re onstrato
liberal position on thi every question, and to
talk of disunion as he inevitable conetquencc

Mr. Stephens, of Georgia, having - denied, in
preferred against them by Henrico, the Wash.
ington correspondent of the Philadelphia Bulle
tin, detailing the particulars of the Preeldent's
illness and death, Henrico responds, saying
that the denial is "equivical," and adds, that
the visit was made on the 3d. The correspon
dent of the Philadelphia American, under date,
of the 15th, has, however, the followirig on
this, subject: •
Very serious and unfoitunate 'misapprehen
sions, to use the mildest term, have been pub
lished in various quarters, concerning the ill
ness - and -- incidents connected with the Presi
dent's death. It is not true, as has been stated,
that Mr. Toombs and• Mr. Stephens visited
General Taylor after his indisposition, and
threatened a vote of censure if he refused to
coincide with the policy which they recom
mended. Mr. Toombs called upon_Gen.Tay-.
for on the morning of the 3d of July—the day
before ho attended the celebration—and confer
red fully with him in regard to the Texas dif
-ficulty.- The--President -stated—his-purpose-to
hold possession of New Mexico, and to resist
with all the power at his command any attemp
ted aggression. Mr. Toombs expressed his.
opinion of the consequences which would at•
tend such a policy, and .the interview closed
with an emphatic understanding on both sides.
Mr. Stephens - was no party to the conference,
and was not informed of its character mail the
evening of that day. It may well be doubted
whether the interview referred to, ever made
any impression upon the mind of Gen. Taylor,
aftbr its occurrence. If it did, his family and
constitutional advisers are inure ignprunt than
the correspondent who gave the story publicity.
This statement is due alike to the memory of
the dad, and in justice to the living.

The Report of tho Committee is published in
the Boston papers. It gives a summary of the
progres's of the cane from its commencement,
and says that the Commitleo, after,a
and earnest inteetigation of the argurnents of

'and circumstances, as to form a proper and suP
ficiont basis for Executive interference ; that
on three grounds tho Committee cannot, con
sistently with their duty, recommend a corn
mutatioa of the sentence. They then recom
mend the above date for the execution.
The Governor, in his address on the subject
to the Council, remarkalliat he feels the weight
of his responsibility, but is nut disposed to e
vade itor to 'shrink from it. lie then proceeds
to give u detailed history of the case, and says
In carefully and anxiously - examining and
considering the case, I do not feel authorized
by any considerations which have been presen
ted to my mind to set aside the deliberate ver

law an pronounced by the highest, judicial tri
bunal of the Commonwealth, and disregard the
opinion and advice of the Council.
Utile circumstances of the killing, as stated
by the prisoner, aro taken as true, it may be
well questioned whether the Executive Coun
cil could interfere with the sentence without vi
olating the the land.
In his charge to the jury in this case, the
Chief Justice says : "It is a settled rule that
no provocation of ?words only, will justify a blow.
Then if upon provoking language, the party re
venge himself with a mortal blow, it is unques
The only new fact brought to'light as to the
killing depends upon the word of the prisoner.
It will fluidly be pretended by any onc,thatthe
declaration oca person ender sentence of death,-

the Court and Jurysnd rescue him from the
consequences which are to follow their procee
It is candidly stated by Dr. Putnam, in his
able argument, and by several of the petitimis
presented in favor of commutation, received
since his confession, that standing as lie does,
the word of the prisoner is entitled tone credit.
If the circumstances disclosed on the trial
nib' felled • - iin to S - uppartthisetate mcsi,abio reply
is, that those circumstances wore urged in 'his
favor before the Jury, and they have decided
against him. The facts of this appalling case
are before the world ; they will hereafter fill

I was introdliced to his amiable and beautiful

the table as by instinct—and 1 assure, you, Mr,
Herald; his company was of no ordinary kind..
Pity friend is a printer, and his guests were his
apprentices and journeymen, as pretty a, set of
boys as any country can afford. His devil was
there as nice as any of them. My_ friend and
his accomplished lady seated at the head of the

a practical example of politeness, elevating
their bashful youthfurminds, preparing them to
go abroad into hur Republican world to do
their.duty. I can assure You I experienced a
pleasure at that dinner table which made me
desire soon to be invited to another such. My
friend is a true Whig. But let me contrast this
scene with another that happened to me at a
farmer's house At far from your town. Being
an old and familiar acquaintance in the family,

Mn. EDITOR : The time is close at hand'
when it will be necessary for the Whigs - of
this Congressional District to select and nomi
nate for themselves an individual qualified to..
discharge the duties of an active anti honora
ble CongressiXan. And as Cumberland county
has not, since the existing arrangement of thisv
District, had the_honor of being represented by , ..
any one of her sons in the Hall of Congresg„
_we think - the counties of Perry and Franklin
ought and will ae:code.Ais us our right to furnish.
the next candidate.
Among Ippbe whom wo have heard mention
in dilferengetions of the county, we know of
none mpro worthy and able its a candidate i than.
JOSEPH MOSSER, Esq., of N. Cumberland.
He-has labored hard and long in the Whig;
cause, and is well knoWn throughout the coun •
ty and District as an able, consistent and genu
ine Whig. • Ho is a close observer, and well
acquainted with the wishes of the party and:
the interests of the , county—From our know
ledge of his energy of.character and business
habits we believe no one - CMild be nominated. or
—"-us better or reprettent
us more honorably.'
Wo, therefore, reecorlamend him to the citi
zens of Cumberland county and this Congress
ional District as a candidate for nomination ;
believing as we do, that no other one would be
better supported or receive a larger majority
of our votes at the polls.
