PA SATURDAY MORNING, SEPT. 2, 1854 11*.=71MMT71 FOR GOVERNOR: WILLIAM BIGLER, Of Clearfield County. JUDOZ OF SETRIXI COURT JEREMIAH S. BLACK, Of Somerset County. i'v It CANAL CONJUSSIONY.II HENRY S. MOTT, Of Pike County. The Democratic Party—XOrmica. One thing cannot have escaped the notioeeviti of the moscaareleiss observer of the working of political parties; that there is now making in the fragmentary Whig party, in all its various de partments, the most vigorous efforts to cast re proach upon the Democracy of the country, and the Executive power of the nation True, this is not a nee thing in the history of ouepolitical organizations. It is not a new ele ment in the Whig party Ridicule with them is a more powerful weapon than argument, and in • its use they have uncommon skill Long prat ties has made them perfect in the use of appro bious epithets, low cunning and scandal There never has been a Democratic administration that • suited theta, or one that they did not denounce as ruinous to the country and destructive to the rights and liberties of the people Jefferson and Jackson were as loudly condemned as Folk and Pierce The only difference obtains in the fact, that then the Wbig party was a unit, working under the t•uidance and direction of muter minds—but now it is in fragnients---the three , great portions of w - tilch are the Free Boilers, the old line Abolitionists and the Garrisonian patty. Each of tlyse parties has its especial hatred for the Administration, and for the Democratic par ty Each at the call of a new opportunity, ri ses tip to the work of abuse and is true to its old federal ides The present time is distin- guisbed by strong political excitement, and the union of all opposing factions against the Ad ministration, for at its sanction of a bill passed the recent session of Congress, giving the people of the territories of Kansas and Nebraska the same nght to eintrol their internal affairs, that is con ceded to New York end Pennsylvania. This is a plain statement of the whole matter, the height and deptn of the whole question. And yet this. our country has not for years known 40 ten , interest and excitement All over the laud men are called together by flaming band dud wild, restless spirits, make night hide• ou , with their long harrangut.44 peop;e up on rue progressive tendency of the •fave p ,, wer, au 1 ' pr.—laver) 'sentiment o. the Dew ,er.t it: part , It, crowd: gather—Li libow. .tchst be dJue, ii ntr koriws, wham ,as be d o t o • ha l t hatred ,t 11•, vak4r u rev) and Jeal .u.) are t•trugglitig in the heart. anal so the throbbing maw iws wild, and , turgt •cii, and like that too throws up mire and dirt , w, why 1 , 4 all this excitement, this ruling i_s.sc , u• No new principle has been sought by an) man. or any party to be incorporated into our institutions. But simply, an old land-mark that Lad long been obnoxious to a free sover eign people, especially the people of the North, , has hecu removed That old line of division I had long been a "rock of offence, and a stone o f stumbling" to the Anti-Slavery party of the North Deep and bitter are the curses they tiave pronounced upon it. Strong is the lan guage of their resolutions in which they have c budemued it Its. repeal, then, could not have be , u 1 new, Jr unexpected. or unhoped for thing, with them It inv Aved no new principle, but on the con tr.Ar) it carried into action an old and well es tablished doctrine of the States, that every State has, and of right ought to have, the controling power over its own internal policy Why then should the re-affirming of this principle, old as th e Constitution of the United States, produce so strong feelings of excitement in the body politic and bring down the holy wrath of the Prophet, and the Church, upon men whose only political sin is that they have dared in the halls of Con gress to advocate the dchtrine of State sovereign ty? Why should any honest and intelligent man be deceived by the use of meaningless terms into an opinion unfavorable to the great principles of the party to which he has belonged, calculated to alienate his mind from doctrines and truths the correctness otAritich be has ne ver doubted, and has never had reason to doubt? Why should any be deceived with reference to the I,,,eition of the whig party upon this quer u.. 151" It is not claimed by any one of them, neither lb it claimed by any respectable number of men of any party, that slavery will be extend ed by the recent act of Congress. If slavery is not extended thereby, why should the alarm be sounded through the whole world, and men called upon to drop all political ties, and Join the ranks of the enemy Reference to the past, shows, with bow much honesty the Whig patty min claim to be anti-sla very in sentiment or action. Who was the can didate for the Presidency of that party in '4B! The man owned a hundred dam.' Who brought forward the fugitive slave law of '5O, and carried it through both branches of Congress 1 The Whig party. Who signed that bill, and caused it to become a law' A Ishii President- Let the harping whig papers and leaders look these facts in the face, and honestly and frankly confess to a candid and intelligent people, ere they claim to be an anti slavery party, laboring for the ad vancement and freedom of mankind. But they have entirely changed, and now smite with the great mass upon the broad platform of the anti- Nebraska organisation, we are told. Bat, who, with the open page of history before him has, or can have, any confidence in their plofessions.— While the Democratic party has been true and conetant, firmly adheriagto it its peat leading ideas and prlasifiss, iodating epos a rigid sow ERIE, SATURDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 2, 1854, pliant* with the 00111;6 union, the Whig patsy has been changing, vasilating—having no bed Or enduring principles Will they continue to oppose slavery ettension? who knows this? At one time they denonsoed a United States Bank as an "obsolete idea;" and then soon after coming into power labored with all the best ta lent and energy they could command, to reinstate that "obsolete idea." To the Providence of God, in the removal of Harrison, and the stubborn ness of John Tyler ni vetoing the bill when presented, and not to the ioAiy part", the eountry owes its freedom from the curse of that institu tion So with all the exciting questions of the day; they have advocated them and than denounced them, as it would best subserve their course and help them in a pressing emergency Democrats, what will you gain by listening to their loud denunciations of these principles,which for years have been our support and safety, and suffering yourselves to be led by a party whose whole principle of action is expediency? Noth ing but shame and sorrow, You have been true and honest in tunes past, and have stood firmly and manfully by the con stitution of the States. You have not faltered when dangers threatened, and the clouds gath ered, and have lived above bribery, unspotted too by political intrigue,. Then before you act with any other political organization, that is brought out upon a false and forced issue wheth er secret or public, consider what you will gain and what you will lose HOMER. ADDRES S OF THE STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE To THY PZOPLK or PINNSYLYANIA• Fellow eihzena• —We shall now aak your at tention to the character, claims and qualifications of the Democratic nominees, and the measures and merits of the State Administration, leaving the more abstract and distant quQstiou of for future consideration But little need be said at this day of the mer its and abilities of Goveritor Bigler His person al history has become familliar to the people of the State, and his official acts furnish abundant evidence of hie eminent and rare qualification , ro discharge the duties of the office he now holds From the humblest rank in society, unaided by wealth or influential friends, he rose, when yet in his minority; to the dignity of a practical prin ter and editor; and at a very early age, the con trol of an extensive and useful business He came into the State Senate in 11342 Though young, modest nod retiring he soon made a fa vorable impression on the members of that body It was the remark of a veuerabie Whig Senator, on heanug Gov Bigler's maiden speech in the Senate, which was on the question of resumption of apevie payments by the banks, "That man tt ill Dome day be Governor of Peunayivailia. He served sis•yeara in that body, and iew its members have left behind thew au ip.asl a re cord or a more spotless mural earoer He was distinguished for hi• iudnetry, ell Je , ,oti to duty, and hi, entire tu the great financial crisis tit 1.14 „iv sorely effected the credit of the State, ~n,ce, were of the wo-9t eminent character de was :on *tautly at his post, to meet and repel ail attacks upon the tionor of the State, fearless voting tor and sustaining every practical scheme fur the maintenance of her fidelity, regardless ut coutie quence personal to himself We recur to the part which our candidate acted iu those critical times with pride and pleasure, and we are cunt;- dent that thousands of our political opponents at Philadelphia and elsewhere will pin with us in this feeling. He was the estrly advocate of eugratting the principle of individual liability on bank charters —of the abolition of imprisonment for debt, and of every measure intended to du Justice to the la boring masses, and elevate their condition in life. His report on the Tariff in 1847 stands in proud contrast with the feeble and abortive ef forts of his enemies in the Senate, who attempt ed to break him down that question It way a masterly production, eloquent in language aud sound in doctrine As much may be said of his speech made the , same session, on the policy of constructing the 1 Pennsylvania Railroad When representatives from Philadelphia and Pittsburgh denounced the project as impracticable as a ruse and a trick, Gov. Bigler advocated the feasibility of the route and the utility of the work, foretelling what has since taken place with remarkable accuracy And it may not be improper, at this juncture, to remind the people of Philadelphia and Pitts -1 burgh of the significant fact, that when Goerner Bigler was advoe.stieg the construction of a rail road by a direct route from one city to the other, through our uwu State, a portion of the repre sentatives from both thou cities advocated the policy of making this connection by a circuitous route, passing through two other States Indeed, in every exigency that has arisen in the last um years, Gov Bigler has been the staunch advocate of the true interests of our great commercial em porium, and her citiseus, will uei, we trust, for get this fact ou the day of the elect' .0 His election in 1651 was a triumph of brad State and National re , hey, fully and fairly tied-- red He was presented to the people AZ the ad vocate of the Compromise measures of 1850—u the friend of the tariff of 1846, lie against the Tariff of 1842—the friend of economy of public affairs—the advocate of a sound currency—the opponent of an increase of banking capital, and the advocate of the fullest liability that could be iingsed on corporation*. is administration has been eventful and dis tinguished by energy, ability and prudence At the time of his inductiodinto office, the Legisla ture were indulging in the practice of granting special privileges to corporations, to carry on mere business transactions, and to compete with individual enterprise. This species of legisla tion had been indulged in to au alarming extent. Gov Bigler immediately took ground pinta it, and by a series of veto m, embodying the soundest doctrine, sustained bythe dearest and most forcible arguments, soon succeeded in con vincing all parties, that such all special privile -1 ges should not be granted; that those who seek to enjoy the profits of a business enterprise, under an act of incorporation, should be required to bear all the responsibility. This doctrine is now the settled policy of the State. It is 1 remarkable fact, that whilst Gov or Bigler's vetoes in the session of 1852, were ti mericaßy greater than all that had emanated fro 03 ,132 any one of his predecessors in a full term of ser vice, not sec measure was sustained by the Gen eral Assembly against his objections. Indeed, such is the fact in reference to all his veto mes sages up to the present time. When the 'stare attempted to crate a broOd of new and to extend ihtprovidentially paper issues, the fatal step was arrested by the veto power, and eleven banks were rejected at one time. When, again, it wss attempted to give the Pennsylvania Railroad Centpanentire control of the State Weeks at West • the ineesure was $1 50 A YEAR, IN ADVANCE. u-31 BER T u promptly arrested by a veto; Ng remedy, when it was proposed by the General Assembly, to re lieve this mese mrporaties and the Peemsylvanis sad Ohio Railroad Oompaay, fres the penalties imposed by, sad lammed nadir, the law spinst the circulation of foreign small notes, thereby es tablishing a most dangerous sad prejmficial pre cedent in hgielesioa, the evil Imo averted by the same mesas. The policy indicated by Gov. Bigler in his first message, after his induction into o&oe, contained many stwgestiam l / 2 and among these was the can eallation of six per coat. bonds for the Common wealth then outstanding by the creation of five per cent. bonds This measure was adopted and a large sum of money, saved annually to the treasury The policy of sash payments and short settlements on the public works,is the cane document, had it been • y into ef fect by law, could not have failed to exercise a most healthy influence upon that branch of the public service. His predessesor, William Y. Johnston, was the author of the relief currency. Under the ad ministration of Gov. Shank, measures had been adopted to withdraw from circulation and cancel this noxious medium Very soon after the Whigs came into power, under Gov. Johnston, this process of cancellation, so wisely began, was arrested, and provisions made to continue this depreciated and oonstitutional currency in circu lation, by paying the Banks a large compensa tion, from time to time, for re-issuing the defaced notes. Among the first measures of the present administration, was to make provisions for the final withdrawal and extinction of this currency, and the work of cancellation is again in opera tion. In this single item of State policy, fellow citi zens, we have • very striking illustration of the difference between Federal and Democratic meas ures. It is for you to determine which are right, and the best adapted to promote the pros perity of the State But in nothing has Gov Bigler rendered a more important service to the people, than by his constant and untiring efforts to break down the pernicious system of omnibus and special legislation. This was among his earliest remmi menttatiotuir and in the session of 1853, a few general laws were adopted on the repirt and re commendation of commissioners appointed by him for that purpose under an set ot the Legis lature, and much goott was thus affected In the Governor's message of 1854, however, he placed the axe at the root of this tree of evil, this spreading Upaa, by declaring most emphati cally, that Le should u. , iunger participate in that offensiit -,ysteui it legislation; and that the whole power of thi. Eitetutive Department should be wielded against It The sentiment received universal approbation All parties. the-Gene ral Assetabiy acted ou tins suggestion, and the people are presented with tile laws of 165-4. each seperate from the other, and standing ou its own Weill., Th. us, never .arecuTed before, since ~; the Government Had the present admito-s - rrtiou no other claim , this cone shoo.. trsoratole Judg neut of the people The policy of tut u,str•li now well defined ou all -übj-,•(-. 1111 .ut.uurti,c can not fail to promo:.. , tin -ah,(aut,al w•Atrr_ ot the people At to, 1we"1 Or Into power a number of improvements wete in progress of construction, much iarg, r sum then had been antietpatel, and this c)-reuiustanee It is true, 484 to some exteui embarr itled the !solid of the administration But it - must te remem bered, that these schemes were u o oomaneueed at the instance of Governor Bigler They had been undertaken before he come office, and the wise policy seemed to be to conduct the w to au early completion Indeed it bass been de clared as a fixed policy of the administration, that nu new schemes of improvement shall be commenced Nor has the honor and dignity ,f the State been permitted to suffer in any instance When the Executive of a neighboring State refused to surrender a fugitive from justice, against whom a true bill of indictment.for kidnapping but 'teen found the county of Chester, the right and dignity of the Commonwealth was vindicated in a paper of surpassing power and ability. Liug after its author shall have retired from public life—yea, after his head shall be pillowed be heath the sods of the valley, this document will be referred to in the archives of Pennsylvania, as a model fur other executives, and continue to excite the pride aud admiration of her people. When again at a subsequent period, an exi gency arose at the city and county of Erie, in volving no inconsiderable extent the honor aud dignity of the State, he was nut found wanting, but came up fully to public expectation His energy and firmness in this crisis commanded the respect of all. When told as he was frequently that the measures he deemed expedient to adopt, would prejudiur his political prospects in this ur that locality, his unitorm reply was--it mat tered not, he had the honor of the State to pr 1- tect, and that should be dune at all hazards. - Fellow-citizens: shall an officer thus tiouest, devoted, prudernt,and able, be discarded or strict en down, for ligi4 and imaginary causes? Shall a policy in State Iffairs so wise be abandoned to give place to a Federal rule? We hope not;— and we would be doing injustice to thi. people to even entertain the thought for a moment We believe you will retain Governor Bigler, as you have done all his Democratic predeoeeeurs, for the constitutional term. We dii not claim per fection for his administration, nor for the man. There are, doubtless, grounds for honest differ epees of opinion, whether the wisest policy has at all times been pursued, but we do claim that the good greatly preponderates, and that his purposes have been universally pure slid patri otic. In the distribution of executive patronage every one who applied could not be appointed; and although this was necessarily sat, it is a diffi culty which must be encountered by all admin istrstioua. Some worthy citizens may have felt that they had just cause for complaint—but so long as the public 'emit* be well performed, you will agree with us, that it is of minor im portance who shall be the agent of the work— and certainly no than will forsake his principles and party, for reasons so untenable and result& so unavoidable The Hon. Jeremiah S Black, the Democratic candidate for Judge of the Suprrtue Court, re quires nu recommendation at oar hands. He has been weighed in the balance and not found wanting. His pail tient qualifications for the place, his profound ,cixolarship, his fine literary attainments and Liz , unsullied moral character, are the theme of general admiration, among men of all parties, lawyers and laymen. Indeed, these qualifications, his entire and peculiar fit ness, his honesty and his great moral worth, will not tfe gainsayed by the most violent partisan.— It would bane the most prolific brain to produce one well-founded reason against his re-election. The numerous opinions be has written since he has been the Chief Justice of the present very able and learned bench, not long since chosen by the people of Pennsylvania under their re moddled constitution, by which they are permit,. ted to choose, as is their right, the administra- LIOR al well as the makers of the laws, and his literary productions at an earlier period of his life, have distinguished him as a man of extra ordinary powers of mind, and have made for him a reputation of which his native Blase my justly boast.

Henry Mott, Seq. ' the Democratic candi date for Canal Commis sioner, is likewise emi nently worthy of your et:Widen* and support He has heretofore filled several public stations, in addition to that of Bepreseutative in the low er hawk of the Legislature In the dieeharge of the duties devolved upon bins in these respec tive stations, he has given evidence, that be is possessed of a clear mind, of a sound, practical judgment of habits of industry and principles of strict integrity. He is well qualified by educa tion and by experience to perform the duties of the airs for which he is named Of his per nasal merits of his exoellent qualities of head and heart, you could have no stringer evidence, than is furniebed in the coated and zealous sup port extended to him by his neighbors and those who know him most intimately We d. not doubt his triumphant election But lot ns, fellow-oitisens, in addition DI the views presented for your consideration in our last address, again ask your attention fora mo ment, to the aspect of the opposition to the Dem ocratic nominees. The Whigs as a party have no priaciple to bind them together, neither &ate not National policy on which to rally One after another, ui rapid suocession, their meas ures of public policy have been rejected by the people and utterly abandoned by themselves.— The operations of time and experience have fel mified all their former dogmas The Bank of the Ututed States; the Bankrupt act; Public Lands; the Tariff of 1842, or indeed any Tariff avowedly for protection, have all become "obsolete idea.!" descended to "the tombs of the Capulets '' tility to territorial extension in general, includ ing-the soquisition in Louisiana and Texas, Los att.) to the Independent Treasury; the Tariff of 1846; to the war with Mexico; the acquisition of California; to the liability of stockholders in banks and corporations generally, together with their terrific descriptions and usurpations and ty rituny. of the one man or qualified veto power, with which the constitution of the several _Suites have wisely clothed the Chief Magistrate of the States and nation, have become dead stock in the pilitical market. Never was a party oetore so barren, of all the elements of existence! ur power There is, we assert, without fear of contradic tion, no instance w be found in modern history of political party that has been so uniformly wroug on every question, and against which time and experience have spoken in such terrible tow:- ut 4...undessuatioa—wtiost follies and errors I..colien with such a miter retribution Tb , u„, now a vestige of Federal ur Whig polo y to be futiud in the country, and nut an ac eu,atlou has been mode against the Democratic policy and ineasuree twit has not been shown to u' utifuuucluii, and been properly rebuked by the As an organization they stand before the country condemned and demoralized Thus pustion is felt and acknowledged by a large portion, the moderate men, of the wbtg party But toe lessons of experience have nev-r taught many of their leaders wisdom, and we now find them indulging in the grievous error of at tempting to re-construct that party OR false and fleeting ideas, without any of the principle- if their former creed on which to basic an ',r i ssole, tion.

We need not reiterate theal mole - adapted by the Whip in the 106- test of 1852, in which they courted the Celia lies and foreigners with the same siaanity that they have previously denounced and reyilod them. Awl now, with a foreigner on their-owa ticket, they have the hardihood to change their policy again, and have commenced to fan tte, lames of prejudice against adopted citizens, aid those professing a certain religious belief, wheth er nativt or foreign born They have atsemptat to create the impression, that ever) adopted cit izen who happens to hold an oboe under a Dew ocratic administration, has been selected base* he was such—that every man of the Catholic faith was selected because he was of that sect.
