" Oh Gregoree, oh Gregori,
Such poetree, such poetri."
" A little bird I am you see."
One day last week a wild-looking, long-haired,
elittwholy countenanced inert entered our office--
at underarm, and apparently somewhat fatigued—
who seated himself on a chair and drew from his
pocket a sheet of paper, at the same time addressing
us—" Sir, with your permission I will read you a
piece of poetry which I wrote and some of my
friends want to see published." We told him to
proceed; whtripon he read, in a tone peculiar to
himself, the following' [ lines," which we have con
cluded to publish verbatim et 'Vera", as they were
written. To our inquiry, whether it was not new
poetry, he replied--" no, it comes quite na
-1 star to me. We give the " poetry" without any
further detail of the colloquium we had relating
thereto. It will be found quite Byronical.
Of all the birds bcneth the sun

And (loth these words to me declare

In Ouse of bowing to the Lord

1 the Harrisburg Telegraph.
The Locofocos " beginning" to tell
the Truth---the Harrison Party has
no need to make such a commence
ment—Honesty the best Policy.
Z.The locos arcbegliming to speak the truth.
[Daily Forunz.
We wish we could say as much for the Whigs.
[Harrisburg Union.
No doubt the Locofocos would be glad enough to I
place their opponents in the same unenviable cate
gory with themselves. But for proof that the
Democratic Harrison party has not now to begin a
career of veracity, the Union is referred to the cam
paigns of 1838 and 1840—to go no further back—
for the charges and evidences against David R.
Porter, that it may compare the colors in which he
is there displayed, with those in which they are
every week painting him; and that too, without
their having any new developements to improve
their political vision, or add to their limning skill.
They will discover the files of the Telegraph of
those periods to contain substantially the same alle
gations, like proofs, similar deductions, with those
which are now served up, every week, with epicu
rean gusto in it own columns. Indeed, so much is
this the case, that the editor of a Reading paper
queries whether Mr. Benedict, the former editor of
the Huntingdon Journal, is not now connected with
the Union, in the capacity of assistant editor ! A
marvellous union truly that would be, but the sup
position is nut to be wondered at, when the tenor of
some of our neighbors editorial ebulitions are con
sidered, redolent as they are with denunciations of
Porter's dishonesty—Porter's lumbering and Kick
apooism—Porter's bribery and corruption—Porter's
robbery of the State Treasury to pay his brother
and Attorney General Johnson fees of $2,000 each
—Porter's hypocrisy and perjury—Porter's abuse of
the pardoning power—Porter's treachery and trea
The Union in all this, is notoriously following in
the footsteps of the Democratic Harrison press. It
is uttering now, for the first time, truths, which were
declared years ago. Did not its conductors then
know them to be truths? They cannot place their
hands upon their hearts, and answer, nay! They
cannot hold up their hands to Heaven, and declare
that they sinned in ignorance.
Yes! After years of political tergiversation and
falsehood in defence of Porter and his misdeeds,
the locofoco presses are "eating in their own words!"
—seizing "our thunder" to annihilate a monster
who they erst shielded from its bolts—gathering
our spent arrows wherewith to destroy the serpent
whom they themselves warmed into life. And yet,
to a remark, made we are confident in a liberal spirit,
upon their new born veracity, the Union replies by
an insinuation of entire falsehood in the Whig par
ty ! Some people, in view of the fact, that almost
every column of that press contains matter which is
a triumphant vindication of the sterling integrity
and unswerving truthfulness of the party which
we have the honor to act with, would be disposed to
denounce such an insinuation as unparalled impu
dence. But that might be considered harsh and
uncharitable ; and we would rather deem it but the
force of an old habit, which having become like se
cond nature from long custom, is very hard to shako
off all at once. With time and care, it is not to be
doubted but that the Union may become a pretty
fair truth-teller, for a Loco foco organ ; and we shall
live in hopes of so desirable a consummation.
" Wet;ish we could say as much for the Whip:"
If we chose to misunderstand the meaning intended
by the Union in this sentence, it could easily be in
terpreted into an admission of the correctness of
the Forum's remark; and as a regret that the Har
rison party had so much of a moral advantage, in
, not having at this time to begin, like themselves,
"to speak the truth." Sitting upon the stool of
repentence for former advocacy of Porter, as they
confessedly are, this kind of an admission would
have been more consistent with a character of real
contrition, and with its present course.
It is to be feared, however, that the differences
existing between us and our Locofoco friends in the
matter of truth-telling, are too vital to be easily ad
justed. With them, it is a question of expediency
—with us, an immutable, unchangeable principle.
We, therefore, have never to " begin" in that way.
But in the above reply to the Forum, taken literally,
the Union tacitly admits that its own party has
made such a beginning, including also the inference
that it sometimes treats truth as a malefactor, by
making it to undergo a temporary suspension, as
being too dangerous to the party interests to be suf
fered to go freely at large. It was this Lynching of
truth which put a Porter into the Executive Chair,
to disgrace it. The Harrison Democracy did their
best to prevent the sacrifice; but the beacon lights
which the majority of the people had been accus
tomed to look to for guidance, shed a false glare over
the land, and the deed which they all now lament,
was blindly perpetrated by them.
The events of the last 'few years of political his
tory in Pennsylvania, however, renders it more clear
than over, that the remark so often applied to indi
viduals, is not less appropriate to parties—that after
all, "honesty is the best policy." As the poet
beautifully says:
"Truth, entailed to earth, shall rise again,
The eternal years of God are hers;
But error, wounded, writhes in pain,
And dies amidst her worshippers.
Lynch Law in Pennaylaania
The Philadelphia Ledger is informed bye gentle
man from Columbia, Lancaster county, that a fiend
like attempt was made by a negro to commit an
outrage on the person of a white girl, at that place,
on the afternoon of the lot inst. The girl had taken
passage on board of a canal boat for Harrisburg,
when the negro came on board, locked her in the
cabin, and attempted the outrage alluded to. The
cries of the girl attracted the attention of a boat.
builder on the other side of the canal, who immedi
ately rescued her, and took the negro before 'Squire
Lloyd. After hearing the case, the magistrate com
mitted the negro to the town hall, to await a con
veyance in the morning, to the jail in Lancaster.—
The outrange soon became known, and much ex
citement prevailed in the neighborhood. During
the night u number of citizens and strangers went
to the town hall, rescued the negro, took him down
to the beach on the Susquehanna, stripped him of his
clothing, and gave him thirty-nine severe lashes.—
They then tarred and feathered the wretch, gave him
thirty-nine lashes more, supplied the place of the
feathers which were cut off by the last beating, by a
fresh quantity, then pinioned his arms, took him to
the door of the house of a leading abolitionist of
Columbia, and left him, in that condition, tied to
the handle of the door.
(0- The readers of the above paragraph will
deeply regret that the indignation which would nat
urally be excited at the foul outrage upon a person,
should altnost be extinguished by the outrage which
was afterwards committed on Justice. The repea
ted usurpations of the rights of the Law, cannot be
persisted in without overwhelming our country in
lawlessness, confusion and anarchy.

been five miles in length. A platform was
erected capable of containing 3,000 per

The various propositions having been
proposed and carried, Mr. O'Connell ad•
dressed the multitude at great length and
amidst the loudest cheering. His speech
was comparatively exempt from the usual
exciting and inflammatory topics, but
though more moderate in terms, was not
less confident and decided in tone, and he

lire Morning Herald, which is now the
sole organ which the Government pos
sesses, had an article the other day de
claring that the Ministry would riot have
recourse to any coercive measure against
Ireland, tor this very singular reason—
that it would be the ruin of conservatism
in this country to identify it with civil
war in the sister kingdom. This article
is regarded by the well-informed as ema
nating from authority, and as consequent
ly indicating the true Ministerial policy.
In the Herald of yesterday the editor re
