RECMCIAN ZINI 1.-Mr. Bonham an
uounces himself ready fur action again,.
in a call, which' is
,published in the Pcnn
sylvanian of Saturday, for .a meeting of
the Pennsylvania State Central Commit
tee, on the 26th pros. "for the purpose"
as the call says, " of organizing the dem
ocratic party on a more perminent basis,
cansolidating it against the secret and
insidious assaults that have fur a time,
impaired its usefulness and efficiency in
carrying out our cherished principlcr,
and to render it impregnable in the future
against the approaches of the various and
dangerons-isins and delusions of the day."
Mr. P. has changed his tune. The.
days of bombastic " defiance" of the
Know Nothings are over now, and as Mr.
Bonham looks hack at the awful wreck
of the second Tuesday in ()etcher,
imploring cry chines up from th''
depths of humiliation in an appeal to tl
"friends of the rights of man," the od
and ends of all nations, to come forwat: 7
in general "fusion" and save the Loco

UNION FIRE COMPANY'S LECTURES.—
The first lecture of the course was dclivered
on Thursday eveninglaSt,by Prof. TIFFANY.
Absence from town prevented our being pre
sent, but we understand that a crowded audi

casion. The lecture was an elegant produc

to with great interest and sathilaction. The
Carlisle Quartette Club also enlivened the oc

The second lecture_of the course will be
delivered on Thursday: evening, Dec'r ith,

particular notice of Prof. Tiffany's lecture,
which we 'subjoin:

The first half of the lecture showed - that
the dcictrines of our Constitution and the
genius of our government are derived from
the gospel of our lord Jesus Christ. The
Professor gave bold relief to Christianity—
Pcolestend Christianity—as the very life of
our institutions—as the spirit that moved our
forefathers, and the light in which their great
deeds were wrought. Regarding this as the
great source of our stability and the great
reliance of the people fur future welfare, he
thought it a question of serious moment
_whether---the-vast---immigration and rapid - nn=
fitralizalinn et fiwei fpwrs, and especially of
Human Catholics, floes not endanger the
safety of Our institutions. The lecturer was
very careful to as-ow that lie had no hostility
to immigration and none to naturalizMion.
provided it he notioo speedy. He would have
foreigners become Americans inwardly lie

to seine recent revelations of — Startling im
