At the meeting of the People's Conven

Mg the Payment of the Tonnage tax should
not be repealed. •

remembr, when they go to vote,
Henry D. Foster is sustained by the Penn•
Sylvania Rail Road Company, 'with the tin•
derstanding that if elected Governor, he will
use his poiver and influence to procure the

D. Foster is one of the' Attornies for the

pledged to work for the exclusive relerests of
that road, it he is elected Governor.

TUE HELL AND EVERETT
,;.A, large number of our citizens assembled
in the Court House, ou Tuesday evening last,
to bear the speakers, who were announced to
address the 'Bell and Everett meeting. In ad
dition ,the Bell and Everett men, a large
numberof Republicans attended from curi
osity, and a larger number of Democrats who
woo drawn there probably. from sympathy.
The first speaker was a Mr Alimony, who
elaimate be a southern man, though n> 'lf a
resident of Philadelphia. lie was introduced
to the 'audience, by Wot M. PeNnose Esq.,
and cemmeceed,nyegular set speech, which
he delivered in an easy forcible manner; but
unfortunately for his cause, lie was a "swift
witness," and proved too much, thereby giving
ground to suspect, that instead of a " Union
man," he was nothing more than a deMocrat
lc emisaiy, who cored less for the election of
`Jowl BeLL, than forth° defeat of the Republi
can party. Mr. MUMMY -was—followed by
MAJOR !litany of Tennessee, a friend and.
neighbor of 'Joni Dyer, who made one of the
most, interesting political speeches we have,-
ever'listened to. If his arguments failed to
convince his audience, they were, at least, ready
to do justicedo the eloquence of his remarks,
the aptness and beauty of his illustrations, and
the energy with which litindvocated•his cause.
Both of the speiikers indulged in some hard
hits on LINCOLN and his supporters, which the "
Republicans present could afford to take in
good part, as it was frankly admitted that
DOUGLAS and Daecitatenzoox were ihoth'"dead
cocks in the'pit," neither of them having the
ghost of a chance, and that the contest`was
thereforenarroweddown to LINCOLN and Btu.;
a declaration which produced several :long
faces among our democratic friends. ,
Neither of the speakers adverted to the
Gubernatorial question, they had discovered
no doubt, before the meeting convened, that if
the philadelPhia 'leaders of i lie Bemaind Em
ir? party expect to sell their influence to the
highest bidder, they
.must seek some other
market than Cumberland county. Th 't,
and Emmy men of this section of th tale,
are too high minded and intelligent to be
caught by kicky ,demagogues; or induced to
transfer their votes to Puma, to gratify the
cupidity of political gamblers who throw con
science to pie Devil, whenever they mitt put'
money in &heir pooketsiby the operation..

that the 'Steward would ifttend to that.' Mr.

I have a high regard for the ability;integri

and Everett, of which I tun well assured, by
long personal acquaintance. and in whose_hands
the government woulfl, be safe, and adminis

Yet froM the very limited support their 1101111-
natitrwline received, success in their election
by the popular vole, against the popular will
manifested for other candidates, is impossible.
Under such circumeinlices for a Whig in
Pemtsylvania to support 4 ticket for Messrs.
Bell and Everett, in my opinion, is to aid one
or other wing, ot the democratic party in the
election of Messrs. Douglas or Breckenridge.
Thiel am unwilling to do. Under ale mis
rule of .the democratic party, the national
government has of late years been much low

been increased to an amount of extravaganCe.
