attention and delight his audience. On this
occasion his speech was worthy'his reputation
-=-cieter, forcible and convincing. The great
subjects. of political agitation were reviewed
• in succession, and the character of our noble
Governor and his judicious administration of
the government, dwelt upon in - - terms of
hfghest eulogy.

Interrupted by bursts of applause, and three

The Locofocos of Harrisburg had a meeting
yesterday evening. WO•stepped in during the
'evening, and found Mr. Bonbani, of Darlisle„
-making a speech. He alluded to, the State is
sues involved. in the contest—repeated the
stale and, exploded slander, that Governor
Johnston had devised the scheme Mr.. Honig
' inaeliTir tiffeTed•last seSsion "relative to, the .re= r
_iicf...issues—shabbily explained 'his' vote last
. winter to, increase the State Debt—insisted that
Gov. Ratner had increased the State debt sev
en millions of dollars, and that when ho left
office the public debt was thirty-two millions of
dollars ! Mr. Bonham said thin could be
proved, but unfortunately hi did not attempt to
"rove it I Gov. Porter , said in his last Message
.ht, increased the debt fifteen Millions of, del
, tars, and that' whin he retired the debt was
forty millions of dollars. How then could it
.have been thirty-two-trillions when his admin
istration commenced '1 It could not have been.
It impOssible.l" :It Was twenty-five millions
when Gov: Either took office;, it was twenty
five millions when ho retired. It -was twenty
five millions when Gov. Porter entered office;
it was forty millions when ho retired. These
are facts as shown by their own Governor,
Porter, and confirmed by all' • Gov
ernors and Auditor General's They cannot be
denied, and Mr. Bonham or any one else is un-:
equal to the' task of proving to the contr try.
Mr. Bonham ,stated further that all the
sources of revenue now in existence 7ere in
existence when Gov. Skunk-resigned his office!
This is Mr. Bigler's statement ,re-iterated.—
We have already proved it false. The Sinking
Fund act which was passed after Gov. John
ston's election, improved the method of col
lecting the collateral inheritance tax so much
that this tax now yields en average 'annually
of $08,616 20 MORE THAN it formerly
The same act imposes a new tax on charters
which in two years has yielded $126,660 17.
It imposed a new tax on distilleries•and brew
oriee, on ten-pin alleys, &e., on eating houses
anti restaurants, 'which has yielded $23,000 to
the State Treasury.' ' The total of- all these is
$346,918 46 ! Locofocos sneer at this and
talk of the folly of such a scheme pitying the
State debt. It has paid over HALF A MIL
LION already. ',Why may it not pay more ?
It:will, if it be not disturbed. Mr. Bonham
Called it Gov. Johnston's contemptible Sink
--W-FiT37 That was the word. DON
TEMPTIBLH." Taxpayers, do you hear thisl
Locofoco rule has built up a debt Of over for
ty millions 'of dollars. Whig rule, by scone
ny and cars„ has in ewo years kaki More than
- -- H-Ar. - F - A --- m - rtro - g of ttilit debt. This is
done by means of a Sinking Fund which. Lo
oofactis call . 6 . contemptible I” From - this,
'udge of their,,anxiety to pay the debt They
oppose and denounce the only measure which
will relieve the people.
Mr. Bonham says it is very easy to pay the
dept, when the money was furnished. True ;
but leak at this; The people, under Locofoco
adnifaetrations were taxed as heavily asunder.
Gov. Johnstons. In fact, as we have frequent
ly proved, a larger amount of money was actu
ally collected every year from Real Eatate by-
Gov. Shank : than by Goo. Johnitoti. War lUD
'ORTiON OF TOE TADT,? This is ODO of our ob-'
cations Locofoco Administrations. They
rot the money,-but didn't pay the debt. Why
did they not ? The people can imagine. These
are the only points of Mr. Bonham's • speech
which deserve notice. When he commenced
trying to prove that the Whig party were op
,losed to their country; and that the ',acetones
were the only patriots, we left the meeting,
•lisgusted that any decent American; citizen
mold debase himself or ineult his audience, by
uggesting so infamous a sentiment. - -
Hero is a man, a candidate for Itepresenta-
tive of the county of Cumberland, a county
which haenot had ono dollar of our great For
ty Million debt, spent within her borders, but
which is grievously taxed on account of that
robt, who yet has the bold hardihood to pro
ounce Gov. Johnston's Sinking Fund a "con
I'EMPTIIILE" affair! Mr. Bonham's ideas tl,l
, noney-matters are truly magnificent. Why
:rho and what 'does he think the people of
3umberland county are? Are they fit for
lothinyt‘t to PAY TAXES . 9 It would seem
to in his estimation nt,least.
Benham we ftppoae think the Forty
Million debt a "contemptible" affair also. He
mist have thought so vviten he voted for two

The Whigs feel that he cannot be limited, while

was chosen to be the ;Whig etandardbearei ; for
another campaign, he to'ok up. Lie position in

For weeks past be has hold forth ,daily to
crowds in va'rious sectioniof the State—bold
ly meeting his opponents facn'to face, replying
to their slanders and freely,givingan account
of his stewardship. He bra spoken at Kittan
ning, Clarion, Franklin, Warren, Erie, Mead
ville, Butler, Beaver; Tioga, and a number of
other places, and is everywhere.reeelved With
enthusiastic delnonstrations. His speech at
Erie, of which we give an extract Ili another
part of this paper, is a noble effort. It takes
high national ground, an re ? nbracem the senti
ments of •a true statesman and patriot. No
one can read without feeling its force and sub
seething to its declarations. At. Heave not
less than six thousand:persons Wont the Sur- .
rounding country were assembled to hear him
and all along the road, whereover there was a
house standing, persons were gathered to cheer
and bid him welcome. : His route from Beaver
to Pittsburg was a continual triumph. At the
town of Economy the community of the place
was drawn up along the reed to receive him,
and one person presented' him with a boquet
six feet , high. A . short distance further up
the workmen on the rand were drawn up, and
had a cider-barrel elevated, on a stand, with
th'e words, 44 Thai same old coon of •1940" pain

female seminary were drawn up, and waved
their handkerchiefs as the train passed.. At

large number 'of fparraera and others greeted
the Governor with hearty cheers, 'and the -sta

introduced by the Hon. Thomas M. Howe, in
a brief but etoquent speech. Gov. Johnston
said a few words-in response, and was' greeted
with enthusiastic applause. The procession
was then formed, and the Governor - was escor;
ted CO the Monongahela lipase, Pittsburg,
where he arrived on Wednesday last, to attend,
the Scott Convention.. Here he 'made several
speeches, referring to the Tariff and other_ po
litiCal topics, and createdo most favorable im
impression. lie was at Washington on the
21st, Brownville on_the 22d0and.1a. to .deliver
an address at Greensburg on the 25th. From
thence he purposes to passAhrouga_thu.Sou

He will be'present at the 'Whig meeting at Got
tysbUrg on the 2d - of September; -and at York
on the 3d. He will continue on the stump, if
health and strength permit, until the close of
the campaign.
We hope every Whig in Cumberland, and
„throughout,Pennsvlvania, will imitate the ex
ample of our gallant leader. There hi no use
in being Whigs unless we aro working and vo
ling - Whigs—ready to stand up for the princi

ensure the success of our candidates. We have
the numerical strength to elect ovary man on

The enormous - sum of two and a
lions of dollars have left the port of New York
within tha last two weeks, . to pay foreigners
for goods imported into this aountry. Two and
a half millions in ttoo.weekst exclaims the Vil
lage Record.. Think of that yo advocates of a
revenue Tariff. Out. farmers who wore prom
ised high prices for their grain, under the Brit
ish Tariff of '46 find themselies deceived and
cheated. The English market is supplied with
Wheat from other countries, at - a price lower
than it can be raised hare at a profit. So the
Whigs predicted. The potato rot raised the
price of corn a few years ago and the Locos
said,it was their new Tariff did it! The far
mers now see what reliance is to by placed on
a party who'are so destitute of American prin
ciples, as to manufacture falsehoods in order
to reconcile their followers to the - support of a
most pernicious and ruinous law.

While' the Committee was out° the mooting
was addressed witlrgreat ability and eloquence
by Joins C. KUNICEL, Esq. of Harrisburg, who
was listened to with deep .interest and whose
address elicited enthusiastic' applause. The
Committee then repofted the following resolu
tions, which wore unanimously adopted:
are in favor of the ihrron, first, last and before
every thing. That we view with contempt the
effort now making in Pennsylvania by, the lea
ders of locofocoism to induce the,people to be
lieve the Whig party are iu favor of Disunion.
The trick it too shallow to deceive even the ig
noiatit, and would only be resorted to by des
perate politicians, unprincipled enough to ad
vance party interests before those of their
ResoNeil, That the administration, of Neal
dent FILLMOTIE deserves the confidence of, the
entiee Whig party — lts'pati f ibttsm — T - fra
are Unquestionable. The noble. stand taken
by our national government in favor of Amer
ican-Industry goes to Pennsylvania hearts, and
the - old - Keystone --records-the:4 verdict "'well:
'done, good and 'faithful servants."
Resolved, That the Protective Policy is the
true national system. That as republicans we
can never consent to be subsidiary to the sub
jects of foreignillespotisms. Our national ge
nius in mechanical and raanuficturing pursuits
should have full scope, and so far as the Whig
party can encourage our own labor it shall be
done. it has over been the champion of our
own Workmen, while Sir Robert-, Walker and
his locofoco allies aro the advocates of British
interests and complimented as such by British
Rcsoli•cd, That in the election of Governor
of Pennsylvania the Whige of Cumberland
County go heart in hand for WM. F. JOIIN
Resolved, That' if Gov. JonusTort had done
no more than establish the present SINKING
FUND SYSTEM, which is paying, the State Debt
without additional Taxes on the Farmer,' he would
hard rendered greater servieb_to the Common,
wealth Man all the looofooo Governors ever e-
looted, they being much more skilled in ova•
ting debts than paying them. But when in ad , '
dition to this-we'regard th,ii ability of his whole
Administration we eon endorse him as pre-emi
nently entitled to the suffrages of, -theeitizens
Of Pennsylvatfia; • • •
Resolved, That the Weig party are opposed
to a-Board- of- Canal Commissioneis- who use
the public works to. transport their political
friends to and from political assemblages, free
of cost, thus defrauding the tax-paying•citizens
of Pennsylvania, and lessening the State revs-,
nue. That We deed it high time to Wyse a
little Whig leaven into the •pftinagerrient of our
public improvements, which we will to this
fall by electing honest JOHN STROHM Canal
Resolved, That we but reiterate the voice of
the Whigs of this Commonwealth, when ict
pronounce Gen. WINFIELf) SCOTT as our
first choice for President, and that with. him
as our candidate we can go into the next cam
paign confident of a successful result.
Resolved, That the present low prices Of our
agricultural products show • conclusively the
fallaciousness of a foreign market. The Mal
lon° Free Traders promised high prices under
the Tariff of 1846. The farmers can now acie
. . . -
how these promises have been fulfilled.
Resolved, That the Whig party of Cumber
