Democrats of Pennsylvania:
m i i
i ne issue is once more raaue in our
good old Commonwealth, and it remains
for vou to say whether it shall be redeem
ed or not. This issue is not a new one,
although it may be presented under a dif
ferent aspect.
It has been the constant and unchanrino
object of the Democratic Party, in this
country, ever since the days of Thomas
Jefferson, to establish upon a firm basis,
and to put into successful practice that fun
damental doctrine of the Declaration of
Independence, that all men are born politic-ally
free and equal; and while a diversi
ty of objects somewhat local in their char
acter, may have temporarily changed th
issues from time to time, there has never
been a contest in which this important
principle has not been involved directly or
mdireeily. The questions of Banks, Tar
ills, an Independent Treasury, distribution
of the pioceeds of the sale of Public Lands
Internal Improvements. &c, &c, have
agitated this country for many years, and
yet viewed in the abstract, good democrats
. i. . i i
are ouen at a loss 10 see wnat Ganger can
accrue to their principles let these measures
be successful or not Few look below the
surface of tilings; but those who do, see
in these measures a foundation on which
is to be erected the superstructure of priv-
ueged classes ana privileged interests.
The democracy never change its name or
objects: They are universal suffrage and
political equality. Federalism is opposed
to both at first openly, but of late under
various guises and changes of names.
In the early days of our government, the
enemies of democracy openly declared
their distrust of the people, and labored to
restrict popular rights and privileges by
legislative enactments. They failed and
the whole history of federalism under the
different names of Federalists, National
Republicans, Whigs, Democratic Whigs,
and Taylor Republicans, has been untiring
labor to do that indirectly which could not
be done directly, to wit: by establishing
corporations without restrictions, thay hope
to control tne hnances, trade and legisla
tion of the country, and to smother indi
vidual enterpnze; by having a particular
class ol interests placed under the special
protection of government, they hope
through them to rule the country; and con
trol all other interests, which in the end
must corrupt the government, demoralize
the people, and ultimately sap the person
al independence of the masses which is
the only sure basis of republican govern
ment. On all these issues whether presented
directly or indirectly, the democracy have
triumphed, and it was their highest pride
under the late administrations to point to
the records of their country for the sue
ces3 of every Democratic measure, and to
point to the unexampled prosperity and
happiness of the people for the fruits of
these triumphs.
There always have been and always will
oe, at least two parties in a free overn
merit, and in outs the democracy represents
the masses. It is the province of the oth
er party under what ever name it may be
known to take care of privileged classes
and privileged interests.
In the success of these measures the
democracy have nothing to fear, they have
always triumphed and always will; but
when issues re abandoned and a military
hero, professedly without political princi
ples, is presented to the people and claims
their sufferrges for his military services
our rulers may change, but our principles
never; and such has been the result of the
late Presidential and gubernatorial elec
tions. The country never was in a state
of higher prosperity than it is at present;
peace, happiness and abundance are every
where. Some one particular branch of
industry may languish, but i; is only tem
porarily, and this constitutes but a small
proportion of the great thriving, industry
of the country. ' All these exist under full
sway of democratic principles. Not a sin
gle line has been blotted out bv the elec
tions as compared with those of last fall, it
would spem as lf-the people having sus-i
taineit their country's war, and rewarded its
hero with the highest honor in their gift,
are determined to surround him with a
democratic Congress, allowing him nothing
more than the name of President and the
em oluments of office.
AVe predict that in les3 than six months
the National and State administrations will
be without the power to pass a single act,
either in the national or State Legislatures.
Still, while they are without power to
legislate, every one knows the executive
power will do its utmost to paralyse the
democracy, with the hope of ultimately
breaking down their principles. The pol
icy ot uoernor rnuni was endorsed by
an overwhelming majority in 1817, and
nothing but a fatal security of the Democ
racy prevented the re-assertion of their
principles in 1848. No one dreamed of
danger, and while all felt secure, Governor
Johnston travelled the State, avowing no
principles for the public eye, but bargain
ing with Natives, declaring liimslf for
Free Soil in one section of the State, and
advocating a slave-holder for the Presiden
cy in another he succeeded in carrying
the State by a few hundred majority.
We will not attempt to charac erize the
late campaign. It is now well understood
by the people and known to be without a
parallel in the history of our country,
Our object of addressing you now is, to
draw your attention to the importance of
the present campaign, and in doing so we
have thought it expedient to show that the
principles of our party are at stake; with
out discussing them at length, they are too
well understood to require it. Let Penn
sylvania be redeemed in October, and N.
York with her once more united Democ
racy in November, and the laurels of 1848
will fade forever, the country be safe, and
Democracy triumphant.
Democrats of Pennsylvania, this is the
issue. Had you carried the State at the
last election, it might not have been so
the only question to be passed upon in that
event would have oecn the election of a
competent officer for Canal Commissioner.
As it is. you have now the double duty ot
redeeming your State, by triumphantly as
serting your principles, and of electing a
good and competent officer to carry them
out in the proper management of the in
ternal improvements of the State. It was
with a full knowledge of this issue before
them, that the Democratic State Conven
tion, lately assembled at Pittsburg, placed
in nomination John A. Gamble as your
candidate for Canal Commissioner, a gen
tleman of long experience in public im
provements, in the legislative policy "of the
State, and of spotless integrity of chaiacter.
Aside from all other questions, the two
candidates before the people, for the res
ponsible office of Canal Commissioner,
differ in all te essential qualifications for
the duties of that office. Mr. Gamble is a
man in middle life, who possesses nothing
but what he has earned by his own indus
try and economy; he has been for manv
years engaged in various capacities on the
line of our internal improvements thus,
acquiring by experience and observation, a
thorough knowledge of our whole system
of internal improvements he was a mem
ber of our Legislature, and is pefectly ac
quainted with the whole policy of ourgov
ernment in relation to internal improve
ments he is a democrat, and as such has
always been faithful and true, to the prin
ciples of his party and its organization,
and if elected will carry them out in the
economical management of the public
works. Mr. Fuller the candidate of Fed
eralism and Nativism, is a young man of
reputed wealth, a lawyer by profession,
without any experience whatever in rela
tion to internal improvements, and was
never known or heard of in the State, until
he served one session in the legislature last
winter. For he office he'seeks, he seems
not to possess a solitary qualification, and
he rests his whole hopes upon travelling
the State making speeches, declaring him
self a Free Soiler, although he voted for a
slave-holder for President; a Rough and
Ready to secure the Natives, and anything
and everything to secure votes. Between
these two the people are to choose. We
have no fear of the result, if every Demo
crat will do his duty. Have the vote all
brought out, and all will be safe our par
ty is united, and our candidate approved
throughout the State all that is now ne
cessary is to go to the polls, and Pennsyl
vania will wipe out the stain of her defec
tion and take her rank again at the head of
the Democratic States.

The French Difficulty W Saris of Explana
tions". First From the semi-official corres
pondence of the North American. In
dependent,' has the ear of the Secretary
of State, Mr. Clayton, and perhaps speaks
by authority. He says by telegraph,
Sept. 18:
As long ago as in February, M. Poussin,
the French Minister, presented to M. Bu
chanan, then Secretary of State, claim in
behalt of M. Porte, a Frenchman, residing
in Mexico.. Porte had purchased Tobac
co, sold by the agent3 of the American ar
my, knowing it to be private property, and
not subject to the rules of war. The to
bacco was restored to its proper owner by
Col. Childs, the commanding officer, and
the purchase money refunded to Porte.
Under these circumstances, a claim was
setup by the French Minister for dama
ges, being the difference between the price
at which Porte had purchased and sold.
A court of inquiry was held, and decided
unanimously against the claim, and the
decision was approved by Gen. Scott.
Mr. Buchanan went out of office without
examining the case ; and then it came be
fore the present administration. The find
ing was reaffirmed by Mr. Clayton, and
in answer to a note of M. Poussin, the
Secretary of State sustained the verdict of
the Court and his own approval.
M. Poussin rejoined, charging Colonel
Childs virtually with perjury, and using
other insulting language. He was invited
to Washington, being then absent, and the
alternative of withdrawing or adopting his
offensive note, was offered. He withdrew
it, expurgated the offensive terms, and tiien
renewed the communication, which was
accepted. Here, it was supposed, all
difficulty would end. Subsequently, how-j
ever, ' Poussin presented another note,!
claiming the punishment of Commander
Carpenter, under the following circum
stances: Commander Carpenter, while forming
a part of the blockading squadron on the
coast of Mexico, was called upon by the
Captain of the French ship Eugenia, to
iv, to learn what

further steps to takf.
This is kthe whole amount of the diffi

rently, but really about the validity of

Why is not Ihi Frcnlirr Protected?
We have more than once asked the
question, says the Union, Why is not the
Frontier protected? During the whole
summer, the Indians have been commit
ting deprepations on the lives and proper
ty of our citizens residing on the Rio
Grande, and the frontiers of Mexico and
Texas. Large bodies are also collecting
in the neighborhood of the western routes
to California. And yet our government
does nothing, except to lend its aid to
Spain in putting down an anticipated revo
lution in Cuba. Whither are things ten
ding? While we have a general war with
the savages apparently impending, we are
also upon the eve of a rupture with France.
What bungling management of the cabinet
has brough about this state of things? In
view of these threatening difficulties, shall
we have any more of the stupid nonsense
and humbusrsrery about having a 'man of
peace, at the head of our government?
Does it not invite aggression from civili
zed nations? And have not the savages
at last learned the meaning of this con
lemptable cant? It is time for the cabinet
to relieve the country from the error of
position in which they have placed it, if
they cannot retrieve their own reputations.
With the counsels of the Czar prevailing
over the weak but ambitious President of
France, who knows but we are upon the
eve of war with the miscalled republic? It
would be just such a game as the butchers
of Hungary would be likely to play in or

New Bishopric. The Catholic church
is about to found a diocess in Minnesota,
with the seat of the Bishop at St. Paul.
the French Minister of Foreign Affairs
attempted to inculpate our Government,
and to divide the responsibility. As soon
as this information was received, the Pres
ident ordered no further correspondence
to be held with M. Poussin, and his pass
ports to be placed at his disposal.
From the New York Herald.
Soon after M. Poussin airived in this
country from France, he opened, or ex
pressed a desire to open a diplomatic cor
respondence with the Secretary of State,
(then Mr. Buchanan) on two very impor
tint points. These points or topics, were,
First, a more intimate and beneficial com
mercial treaty between France and the
United States, on the basis of a generous
reciprocity, which might increase the trade
of the two republics, beyond what it has
been of late years. The" next important
point was a claim put forth by certain
French citizens, in Vera Cruz, whose
property there, during the bombardment
by Gen. Scott, had been injured or des
troyed, amounting to 8860,000, by one
estimate, or 2,150,000 by another esti
inatr. The old administration, that of
Mr. Polk, received this proposition with
courtesy, but referred M. Poussin to the
new powers, who were soon to come in
with Gen. Taylor.
Thus far, so far. On the accession of
Gen. Taylor, and the appointment of his
cabinet, M. Poussin opened the sime budg
et with Mr. Clayton. Nothing of any
consequence took place on the subject of a
commercial treaty, but a very bitter and
sarcastic correspondence was the result of
the notes on the claim put forth for the
loss of French property, destroyed by the!
bombardment of Vera Cruz, under com
mand of Gen. Scott. Mr. Clayton, on the
part of our government, refused to admit
the claim. xM. Poussin insisted on its
validity, and interspersed some very pun
gent allusions to the honor and honesty of
the French government in paying up the i
American claims on France, some years
ago, after the insulting correspondence of
Mr. Rives towards the French govern
ment. At these allusions, Mr. Clayton
took fire, and, under advice, made a direct
communication with the French govern
ment, through our Minister in Paris, de
manding of Louis Napoleon that he should
recall M. Poussin, or the American gov
ernment would hold his passports in readi
ness for his acceptance.
To this demand and intimation the
French President tired up, and has given
a negative reply, and may probably treat
Mr. Rives as we are going to treat M.
Poussin. Louis Napoleon is satisfied
with the conduct of his Minister here, and
will not recall him. No alternative is left
to the government at Washington from the
first stand taken; and, of course, M. Pous
sin will receive his passports, and return
to France. M. Poussin, accordingly, who
has been in this city up to yesterday, went
to Washington in the afternoon, and will
in military command have not reported in
due form but 23 cases, no steps whatever
have been taken in relation to the remain
ing Indian massacres, although perfectly
well authenticated. The twenty-three
cases officially reported are duly placed
on the file in the War Department; and of
course, the neighbors and relations of the
murdered will feel entirely protected

ous prejudice, but we must confess we
have a deeper sympathy for the lost lives
of 187 of our citizens, slaughtered in cold
blood on our soil, than for the anxious sus
penses of any regal despot. If the fifty gal

cheerful alacrity" to arrest men who never
dreamed of resistance to the laws, were
employed in saving the unprotected wo
men and children on the border from the
scalping knife, it would be more gratifying

Vast Steamboat Combination. A
combination has just been formed says the
Cincinnatti Enquirer, including every
steam vessel on the Lakes, Erie, St. Clair
Huron and Michigan, and the rivers Ni
agara, Detroit and St. Clair. This gigan
tic combination includes the Michigan Cen
tral Railroad. The nature of the compact
is such, that the present owners of boats
give up to the combination all control of
them, and they consequently become, in
effect, joint stock property. Persons are
appointed by the association to appraise
each vessel, and issue scrip to the owner
to tHe amount of the appraisal. The ves
sel then becomes the property of the as
sociation, which places her upon whatever
route it thinks fit, appoints her days . of
sailing, fcc, or lays her up if it thinks
General Reid of Erie, Pa., is President
of the Association, and Mr. Kembcrly, of
milialo, Secretary. 1 he amount of capi
tal invested in the combination cannot
fall short of from three to four millons of
dollars, aside from the Michigan Central
Railroad. The result of this movement
will be to raise the price of passage and
Mr. George Bancroft, our late Minister
at the Court of St. James, intends to make
New York his future residence, and he
will devote his time and attention to liter
ary pursuits. '
