The Philadelphia papers of yesterday give
glowing accounts of the reception of President
Fillmore, who with Messrs. Webster, Critten
den, Graham and Hall, of his Cabinet, arrived
there Monday 'afternoon, 'on their way to
New York, to attend the opening celebration
of the great Erie Railroad. The President
and suite left Washington, at '7 o'clock in the
reforming, wand wore received with 'eta° public
honors by the zat , iretittles of Baltimore. A-
long the Tout& freta s Hiltimore to Philadelphia
the utmost enthusiasm was manifested by the
people at every point. At Wilmington the
party were met by the Committee , of Reeep
_ tion front Philadelphia, by whom a special
steamer, the . "Roger Williams," had been
provided for their conveyance to Philadelphia.
The North American says; at Chester, Fort
Mifflin, and various other points salvos of ar
tillery were fired as the "Roger Williams"
passed lip the Delaware; and upon reaching,
the NavY Yard the PreSident and escort land
ed amid the roar of the cannon, the huzzas of
the:multitude, and the spirit-stirring strains
of martial maxis. The Naval officers on the'
station, headed by Commodore
s liced, and a
full company-of marines under command of
--Lioutenant-Graysow - receiTed — tho — Presidentt,
and party, and conducted them to the gate of
the Navy Yard, where they were placed in car
riages; and, followed by a long procession of
_ citizei_p_assed over the route which had been
designated. Along the entire extent of it, the
enthusiasm ofthe People - expressed itself in
rapturous cheers and the waving of hats and
hatidkereheifs, until the cortege finally arrived
at the United States Hotel.
At thl hotel the President and Secretaries
~..Iyere received with tumultuous and continued
applause. Clanierous calls for•the PreSident
being loudly persevered in, ho came forth upon
the piazza over the entrance tp the hotel, and
after the vociferous applause had subsided; ho
addressed the multitude in a few eloquent
words of acknowledgment for their cordial hos
pitality, as displayed toward himself and the
at,companying members of his Cabinet.

them hismost sincere and profound thanks for

trespass upon their" attention by making a
,speech; and if ho had had any such intention,
a scene like that before him would have de
feated it. Again he returned them a thousand
thanks, and retired. These few remarks were
frequently interrupted by the most enthusias

Subsequently Mr. *bate appeared in an

speech in his usual terse and sententious style

Who will be elected?'
The Locos think they will have us at disad
vantage. They spare no pains to create the im
presSion that a terrible and irreconcilable mis
understanding exists in the Whig ranks. The .
State - Mid NatiOnal administrations aro repro
iiented'aS antagonistic. - The private quarrel
(for it amounts to nothing more) in regard to
the Philadelphia Collectorship, is hailed by
our friends on the other side as a symptom of
wide spread disaffection -
This is all moonshine, and they will
so nt the out-set of the campaign. • Filfifitore
• - and Johnston are on the best terms with each
each other. Their administrations harmonize
upon all the cardiaal doctrines and plmminent
measures of the Whig party.. The friends of
ono are the friends of the other, apd this too
with scarce an exception throughout the length
and breadth of the Commonwealth.
How stands the caso on' the • other hand?—
Are the 'Democracy' harmonious? •Ftir from
it, They are 'splitup into all sorts of factions
—Campbellites _and. Anti,Caiiipbellites—l3u
chanan men and Cass men—Cameronians and
Anti-Camerimians!—real Simon Puree and false
Simon Pures—Hunkers and Darnburners—
Tariff men and Anti-Tariff men, &c. Szo. &c.—
Eimry leader and would be leader has a knot
of hangers-on—ln fact the great Locofoco
platform rests upon a mine, and it needs but
tho application of a match to blow their miser
able organization to atoms. We never yet at
tended a Locofoco State Convention without
witnessing a scene of glorious confusiCn and
disorder. This year the party have two, so
look out for breakers.;
Upon the whole, thlfore, taking the quar
rels and misunderstandings of both sides into
the account,:we-think the Whigs have_the_best
chance. What , we most fear is the shameful
APATHY sometimes manifested on our 'side
of the house. With a full vote of 'Whigs, as
well as Locos—we cannot fail to come off vie-
The Whigs should turn out to a man next
fall. . The election is a most important one.—
A Governor, a Canna Commissioner, Judges of
the Supreme Court, Judges of the District'
Courts, Members of the Legislature, and. a
large number f local officers are to be chosen.
If the Whigs ant a Governor immovably op
posed to ..Einy • crease of the State Debt; if
they want a C nal Commissioner prepared to
expose the c rrnption, profligacy and favori
tism along our intern - al improvements; if they
want a Judiciary* that will honor the bench
and maintain the purity of the judicial er
mine; if they want n Whig Legislature to car
ry into effect the recommendations of a.-Vithi..
Executive—above all, if they want to kehp
Pennsylvania k the noble many of Whig
States, and tinve the way for giving her elee
feral vote to the Whireaudidate for the Pres
idency next year, they must forget andfcfrgive
all past differences—and march Shotdder to
shoulder to meet the common enemy.
It is a little singular that just at this time
the ultra Slavery propagandists, South, and
the ultra Abolitionists, North, aro each assem
bled in Convention, anntritiing to dissolve*

The great convention of Southern Rights
'Associations, which:met at Charleston, on
Monday week, adjourned on TharSday
The proceedings consisted of a good deal of
gassy discussion and the adOpiton of en ad
dress and resolutions. The ground is broadly
taken that there is no safety for the Sotith in
the present 'Union. South Carolina •(says the
address) has heretofore Mired to follow the
other'Southernitatesi --- and uot: to -load; but
.to act for herself,.she shag made
up her mind that she will no longer to,
Tiorthern aggression. • Still, however, she is
willing to adopt the action of any other 'State
likely. to promote 'the end in vie*. 'The right
of secession is regarded as guarantied 'by the
Constitution, and its denial by the General
Government is a eutSolent canoe for resis
tance. It were better to be conquered than
yield without a :struggle. Any State 'has a
right to secede without moleiiation. • -
It is hoped, however, that the necessity of
separate action by South Carolina tzs,y be a
voided, and that other means may be devised
by a Congress of Southern States. If not,
South Carolina, will go alone, at some 'future
Tho taking of testimony in the matter of.
the contested_ election for" Congress, in the:Lu
cerne district, was concluded at Danville, on
Monday of last week. Mr, Wright's. attempt
to prove that fraudulent votes had been given
to Mr. Fuller, his successful compititor, in
Montour, county, proved an utter failure.
only' illegal votes proved were given, it was
ascertained, to the Locofoco candidate! So it
is in all contested election cases. Wherever
rascality and cheating prevail at the polls, the
Looefecos are sure to be at the bottom . of it.—
The District AttorneyshiP in Philadelphia is a
striking case in point.

for the year thus far of $7,948,075, or at the
rate of about $24,000,000, a year I—The main
causes of thisimmento drain, says the -tend:
big ietsrard, are ,the heavy introits of f ore i gn
goods Which the policy of Locofocoism emit-sr
ages. •This is apparent the facithat the
present shipments are not made in silver on
account of the premium which it commands in
Europe, for the supply of that:metal is sonenr
ly exhausted that no further supplies of any a
mount can Ito raised. Nearly,tho whole of the
exports now going forward are in gold, and by
far tiro larger portion in American coin. The
large (mounts of the - precious metal coming
from California,. arc shipped almost as soon as
coined: The probability is that, if. things con
tinue as they arc, gold will soon be as scarce
as ; silver in our sank vaults. In that 'as° a
suspension of 'specie payments by the banks
will ensile as a matter of actual necessity.
Another,, and by no Means inconsiderable
drain of the precious metals:is occasioned' by
the fact that thousands of citizens of this coun-
try aro leaving - for the World's Fair, all of
whom, it, is to too suppoSed, are carrying with
them large amounts of coin or its equivalent.
Weeny of these persons will - take the advantage
of their visit to import goods on their own ac
count, so-that the importations for the - next
half yee:r will doubtless be
. awelled to a sum
far exceeding previous amounts. Add to this
the interest on stooks and securities in this
country, held by' Europeans, and it is plainly
to be inferred that all the gold and silver we
can scrape together will soon gop the oilier
side of the water.
We arc 110 t oro akers or panic inakere, but it
does seem, as matters are now going, the coun
try is on the verge of a general bankruptcy,
destined to be more disastrous in its effects
than any revulsion that has yet taken place.—
The nation flint IMys more than it sells—that
consumes macThanit , proiluces, must soon be
in a condition to owe more than, it can pay,
and this, unless we mistake the signs .of the
times, is what we ore comming to, if we have•
not already reached that point.

The Clearfield Republicanef May the 2d, •
the organ of Col. Bigler, states that intelli
gence enough has been received from different
parts_ottlie_State to...seeure the nomination of
DiOtsr-liy a majority of MO delegates' out of
MS.. The Republican expresses the opinion,
thnt by the time the. Reading Convention meets,
the Democrats will be so atarmonious, that Big
ler will bo nominated by acclamation. The '
Republican adds,--
"The struggle will ho a spirited one. Gov.
Johnston will bo tho Whig candidate, and hav
ing achieved-what-no-other Whig ever did in
this State—received n majority of votes for
Governor=will bring into the contest a repu
tation of strength. Yet the two cases are wide;
ly different. Gov. Johnston then had the ben
efit of the popularity of "Old Rough and Rea
dy," and besides that, ho stood in a state of
"betweenity," and could be called Whig or De
mocrat just to suit the company he met with.-
Now Le runs alone—and no man can doubt his
hatred of the democracy, or shield' his Whig
gory.. But while we look for a warm and en
ergetic content, we have strong hopes that it
will be distinguished for prudence and gentle
manly courtesy, and the absence of every thing
like personal dotraotion." .
parevapk will not bemi l
heeded by the Bigler presses. Tho Republi
oan - thinks that -Gov. -Johnston'was aided at the.
last election, by the popularity of Gen. -Tay
lor. This may be so, says the Harrisburg ...4-
-ercricateitut-now-he-will-be-ohled-t-by-the ex
cellence of his administration, the plans for
decreasing the State debt, his opposition' to
every' measure of taxation, and. the general
oonfidence the peoPte now have in his ability
and integrity. We hold the opinion that Mor
ris Lopgstreth was stronger than Bigler, be
cause he had no assailable points, was a new
man, and all the leaders were united upon him
—Miller, Laporte, Buchanan, 'Frazer, McCan
dless and Black, were 'all active for longstreth.
Cameron and his men were active, because
they thought that hiselection would secure the
election of Cnss. The Presidential election
• harmonized all factions, and the National Ad
ministration sent men and money into Penn

Horslerd. As the latter de;eribes a familiar
and easy mode by which the experiment can
bo tried in private, we veto it for the benefit
of - curious readers:
"It may not be uninteresting to your read

Ladiest - Direeles—Lateet Fashion
._ We mentioned a few weeks ago_thatsome_of
the ladies of 'Syracuse, &ew York;hail adopt
ed short dresses and pantaloons, ala Turk.—
The New York Tribune thus describes the new
apparel: • . •
"We understand that it consists of full Turk
ish trousers, fastened at the angles, and skirts
Coming down a trifle below the knees. . The'
waist is made loose, and according to the taste
of the wearer: - The lady- editor of a paper at
Seneca Falls, and several ladies at Symons°,
have lately adopted this style of dress, - which
they claim far preferable to the street-wiping
skirts now in vogue. - A daughter of a distin
guished philanthropist in • the central part of
this State, his also adopted' this new fashion,
and on a late .occasion appeared in publio in
such a dress, made of the most costly materi
.als. The editors-of the Syracuse papers speak
glowingly of the beauty and effect of this nov
el inn:notion."
Lady Subscribers.
The editor of a Southern paper pays thefol
lowing compliment to his lady patrons, whorl
he justly regards as:model subscribers. Hay
ing a number of- lady subscribers ourself, we
can fully.ondorso the compliment:
-"Women ;ere the best subscribers in the
world to newspapers, magazines, Sze. We have
been editor now going, on eight years, and we
• have never yet lost a. single dollar by . female
subscribers. They seem to make it a point of
conscientious duty to pay the preacher and the
printer—two classes of the community that
suffer more by—ball—pnyland no pay nt all}
than all the rest put together. Whenever we
have a woman's name on our books we know it
is just as good for two dollars and a half as a
ever they subscribe for they read, whether it
bo good, bad; or indifferent; if they once sub
• Scribe for a paper, they are sure to read it— ;
upon the principle, we suppose, that if they
did not their money would be thrown' away—
as nnLildlifdyWhom - vintnewforwhose -- siek --

Hence, we say they are the bestreaders. For
those reasons, we had, any time in, the world,
rather have a dozen women on our book than
fifteen men. . -
To the Ladles--Mouth Making.
As it is essential that the fair Sex should
know how to make aid place their little lips
when they desire to look 'killing,' we give the
following advice gratuitously for their•benefit ;

Pitiable Fanatical Nonsense.
The Hutchinson Family, whose reputation as
concert singers once stood very high in the
Eastern and, Middle States, and who have late-1
ly been mixed. up with's:ll.oo isms and new
fangled theorids of the day, seem to be about
half crazed. On the occasion of a Into concert
the following singular' announcement was,ap

iltilitary Parade
Instead of the annual. May training of the
invincible Militia, as in days of ,yore, we had
yesterday a handsome parade of Volunteer
conpardes. The sovroign people, instead of
being compelled to shoulder deStractive corn
stalks and dress in lino along the rail-track,
were allowed to stay at home and attend to
their business, or to stand in pence and quiet
ness On . the sidewalk, enjoying their ginger
bread as gratified spectators of the,gay suers.
The companies on parade yesterday were the
Artillery, Capt. Hunter, the Infantry, Capt..
'McCartney; and tlie Rifles, Capt. Crop—the
- whole under command of Col. Hunter. The
Garrison Band paraded with them and dis
'coursed most spirit-stirring music. The bat
tallion was inspected. by Brigade' speeder
