promote some private and speoial interest
Few of thorn are of any publio importance.
Tho delegates to the LanCaster Convention,
Messes. MoCnunn and CATIIOART, appointed
'at the Whig • County Convention .on Monday
last, are excellent men and sound and devoted
vrhigs. The appointment of tion. SIMPSON,
of Pow county, as tho Senatorial delegate,
Ins also concurred in.
The resolution passed by the Convention
approbatory of the administration,' of Gov.
Joranrion indicates the course Which' our del
egates will pursue in reference to his re-nomi
nation: In the passage of this resolution the
'Convention has baexpreratifid too general feel

Among the hardy yeomanry of Cumberland
county there is : no'diminution of that enthusi

fled him in triumph to the gubernatorialchair

Gov. Johnston has Won for him tho increased

work they Will not 'permit to be oheeked; but
will bend their energies' to the re-eleotion of
Gov.. Johnston; in order - that - the Work,
may be carried en to still more' triumphant ri3 7

belong's peonlittily . to Gov. Johnston. He o

Among the many complaints that prevaiLin
this community at the present time, is the,one
whicl i t we have placed at the head of this ar 7
Hole. 'We cannot conceive how any sot of
persons can 'be the publisher's of their °ism
Meanness. We witnessed, what.wo call-lifeam
ness, in all its nakedness, disrobed of any.ror ,
deeming qualities, the other evening. At a
free Lecture in Education Hall, op last ThUre-'
day night, the house was crowded to excess,
and all seemed delighted with-the lecturer and.
the manner in which he handled his subject,'
This being the introductory to a course of ,
liectUres, by a gentleman' whom no one will
nocuab of not being able to perform' what he
had undertaken, ono might have supposed
that the same suisceSs would attend the future
efforts of the lecturer. But, no, as there wait a
"levy" charged as the price of adintssion,
it,was a sure preventive to those who make
it their business 'to attend free lectures, and
*Wen called upon to_contribnispenses
Of the lecturer, in the shape of a shilling ad-!
-mittance,,,,exprete themselves perfectly satis
fied with the first ono, and decline going to
hear any more, because, forsoothoit will cost
them twelve and a half cents! And_ yet if it
was_for_ a._ circus, or -a Una- of-Serenaders
they would not hesitate a moment to pay even
double that amount to hear them, ni was done
by many who attended the first free lecture by
Dr. lilorron. on Thursday night last.
We do not hesitate to say - that such conduct
las this is highly reprehensible. It looks well
for a conrniunity like this, which a stranger, to
hear some of them talk, would suppose was.
the hot-bed from which springs all the light
and science that dawns upon the country,—
It speaks well for us, our colleges, schools and
seminaries, that out of such an intelligent
community as this, in which every one pro
fesses to he a dove:teen of Science, such' an
eminently qualified: Lecturer .ns ' Dr. Morron,
Could scarcely raise 'ha audience. Why 'even,
in adjoining towns, with one-ludf the,popula-,
lion of this would-be community of Solons,
Dr. Morron lectured'.night .after night to,
crowded audiences. To conclude,—we hope
that our expression of the truth may ,not
