TO TUE PEOPLE OF PENNSYLVANIA
The Whig party, the Republican party, and
the American party having each nominated a
candidate for the office of Canal Commissioner,
it becomes apparent that such a division of
the elements of opposition to the National Ad
ministration and its Nebraska fraud would in
evitably.. lead to • the eledtion of Arnold Mi
lner, the Pro-Slavery Nebraska candidate. In
vieW of these facts, a meeting of our respec
tive Central Committees of said parties, was
held at Harrisburg, on Thursday, the 27th of
September, 1855, and their nominees having
declined and been withdrawn, Thomas Nichol
son, of Beaver County, was nominated as the
candidata of the said parties, for the purpose
of concentrating - the votes of the Anti Nebras
ka party on one man, and he is hereby ear
nestly recommended to all the lovers of free
dom in Pennsylvania, as a capable, honest,
and true hearted msu, who is worthy of the
support and confidence of the people.
By order of the Committees,
Signed, JOHN A. FlSlitit,
Chairman of the Whig State Committee.

OUR DUTY ON TUESDAY.
The Whig party has been derided as
dead. Many of its old adherents we
know have deserted its banner and
sought another organization. But the
faithful and true that still cling to the
ancient faith—the political faith of the
god-like WEBSTER and glorious lIENnY
CLAY !=will rally again around the old
WHIG FLAG at the Polls on Tuesday
next ! Let others do as they may we
stand firm by our old organization. Our
course is dictated by no factious spirit.—
We offer the right hand of fellowship to
all who agree with us in principle, but we
cannotiSubmit to be used by those who
scorn us. We are Americans, loyal and
true, belt we regard secret political or
pinizations as highly dangerous and alto
getherinimieal to the spirit of our free
institutions. We have no principles and
can hold none that may not be openly
avowed. We acknowledge no necessity
for, but on the contrary abhor all oaths
And rituals in political organizations, and
regard attachment to principles as the
Only..bond , of party fraternity. For these
reasons we still cling to our old organi
zation, and in this spirit we rally. around.
our own ticket.. Let those who seek our
aid abandon their odious I secret:organi
ration and stand with us upon fair, open
and equal terms, and wo are ready f 6
friendly alliance. This is our ground
and upon this we stand or fall. To
the Polls, then; Whigs, and let the ballot
box show our devotion to our glorioufi
organization and principles.

Nminhaation Of Thomas Nicholson!
We have the highest satisfaction in
being able to -state,—a satisfaction we
know will be fully shared by every whig
—that at a joint meeting of gentlemen
composing the Whig, the American and
the Republican State Committees, held in
Harrisburg, on Thursday evening last,
THOMAS _NICHOLSON, of Beaver co.,
was after due discussion and deliberation
put in nomination for the office of Canal
Commissioner, in place of Joseph Hen
derson, the Whig candidate, Peter Mar
tin the Americiin candidate, and Pass
more Williamson, the Republican candi
date, each of whom have voluntarily and
moit-cordially declined in favor of the
nomination of Tnomns NicitoLsoN.—
We accordingly place his name at the
bead of the whig ticket.
This is a result at which every Whig
and every sincere opponent of the'miser
able administration of Franklin Pierce
must be _ratified. It is a magnanimous
giving-u 1 by these various parties fo their
favorite and chosen standard bearers, and
a noble yielding. of 'till minor party con
siderations, to the one great point of a
union against the Pierce Administration
—a union against the Nebraska Kansas
fraud—a Union a! , ainst the extension of
Slavery! On this point the Whigs, A
mericans and Republicans are now united
for iii;teit'citl ut.:,./oie as they have hither

principles. Professing heretofore tl,e
same views on the Slavery question, but
acting separately and apart and thus
defeating the greataim of each, they

we congratulate the country, upon this
union, which may be regarded as the
guaranty of VICTORY I The easy

Plummer, the Nebraska Candidate, were

THE ISSUE NEXT TUESDAY.
The nomination of Thomas Nicholson
makes a plain issue to be decided by the
people of Pennsylvania on Tuesday next.
Those, who are in favor of the Pierce and
Campbell dynasty, and desire to, approve
the Nebraska swindle, and endorse the
Kansas outrages, will vote for Arnold
Plumer. Those who are opposed to these,
and desire the overthrow of Loco Focoism
in the next Presidential contest, will vote
for Thomas Nicholson. This is the issue
and no true man, be he Whig, Republi
can, or American, will have any difficulty
in deciding for whom to vote with such
an issue involved in the contest.
THE 'UNION MOVEMENT.
We are gratified to notice that the no
tion of the State Committees of the Ameri.
can, Republican and Whig Parties, is
everywhere hailed with pleasure, and
cordially approved, and that the seleotion
of Mr. Nicholson as the candidate for
Canal CoramisSioner gives general satis
faction. The Pittsburgh; Philadelpl4a,
Lancaster, and Harrisburg 'Whig , and
American papers all give the assurance
that in their several sections the nomina
tion meets with the cordial concurrence
of every opponent of Pierce & Co. • We,
can say the same for the Whigs and
Americans of Cumberland county, who
will ratify the nomination on Tuesday
by at least six hundred majority!

Now, Whigs, is the time for decided

your influence and your exertions to the
support of your ticket. Have ont your

that every man is provided with a genu

and do it NOW !
No candidate for Sheriff was nomina
ted by the Whigs, and our friends can
therefore make their choice between tho
nominees of other tickets. In point of
personal character both the American
and Democratic candidates for Sheriff are
unexceptionable. With Mr. Bowman,
the democratic candidate, we have no
acquaintance but he bears the character
of a respectable and worthy citizen.-4-
With Mr. Riley, the American candidate
we are well acquainted, however, and al
though he differs from us in politics feel
bound to say that ho not only bears .an
irreproachable character for uprightness
and integrity ; but is in every respect
well qualified for the office. tie has been

oases of the disease have occurred for the
last two or three days past.
The nOrnination of Thomas Nicholson
for Canal Commissioner is so far asheard
from, most heartily responded to by
Whigs and Americans, whohail it as the
precursor of Victory. The Philadelphia
J.Vetes remarks that it is the first step in
the right direction on the part of those
opposed'to Loco Focoism, and, if proper
ly seconded, and efficiently and faithfully
carried out, will not only lead to a tri
umph in the State at the approaching
election, but will pay..e the way for united
and harmonious action in the next Presi
dential contest.," which will be certain to
prevent the electoral vote of the State
being given to the Loco Foco candidate
for Presidetrey next fall. We rejoice,
+ therefore, at the arrangement agreed
upon, and shall not only contribute all
we can to have it carried out in good
faith, hut indulge the hope that every
Whig, American and Republican. who
;• values the principles he professes so
much as to desire the defeat of LocoTo
coisin, will contribute his'inip-ht in the
same spirit, and with the same earnest
zeal. The gentleman agreed upon as tb,e
Union candidate is a good and true man,
possessing the most un hlemss lied personal
eharacter, and having no political antece
dents which can make him objectiorahle
to any Whig, American or Republican,
who makes the success of principles his
only guide for action. Mr Nicholson has
all his life been a steady, consistent,
straight-forward and uncompromising
opponent of Loco Focoism. lie bas nev

posed to the extension of the system of
human. bondage as it exists in the South
ern States, and on all oceasicns, whether
in public or private life, resisted by his
voice, vote and influence, the - aggressive
spi”it of the Slave power. An American
by birth, and in all his feelings and sen
timents, his course in his own county,
and the western part of the State, has
been such as to secure the confidence and
esteem of the, American organization
without forfeiting that of the Whigs or
Republicans, or arraying any of them in
a hostile attitude towards him. A Whig
in the startand from the heart, he is in
feeling and principle no less an Ameri
can and Republican, and combines in his
character those political elements which
can render him obnoxious to none but
Loco Focos, and makes him a fit and ac
ceptable rallying point for all, without
any sacrifice ,of principles, who de - sire to
