The Contest for Governor.
The late legislature Investigation has brought to
light the fact that some of the printers at Harris.
burg for many years, and without distinction of par
ty, have plundered the public treasury• by exorbi
tant prices, and over-charges for work. Thousands
of dollars have thus been filched from the State.
This of itself throws some light on a matter that
might otherwise seem strange to HONEST persons.
•An effect is made, and a most unfair one too, to
prevent the nomination of Gen. Irvin for the office
of Governor by the 4th of March Convention.—
That gentleman's well known character for honesty
and integrity in public and in private transactions,
does not seem to take with those disinterested
creatures at Harrisburg. for they know that with
him as the guardian of the interests of this much
abused and plundered Commonwealth, there would
he no chance for them. These remarks are inten
ded only for such as may deem themselves justifia
ble in appropriating the same to themselves.
A most unprincipled attempt is made at Harris
burg to stir up a strife between some of the promi
nent candidates for the Gubernatorial Chair and
their respective friends. Special pains are taken to
create a " war" between the friends of Gen. Irvin
and those of Judge Banks. The contest seems to
have narrowed down to these two gentlemen, and
the truth is either of them would make an excellent
Governor and we could cheerfully enroll ourself un
der the banner of either, and struggle for victory;
although our preference, as is well known is Irvin.
'lime Harrisburg editors, whose motto is " rule or
ruin," think by stirring up a strife, and setting the
respective friends of the gentlemen named against
each other, their choice, Gen. Joseph Markle, may
stand some chance of the nomination.
A small paper of a most disguisting character,
railed The Old Warrior," was issued last week at
Harrisburg, for the special praise of Markle. For
the honor of the party, however, we state that the
paper is not to be continued, unless there is a good
prospect of dealings ahead.
The " Stevens faction" too, with the Telegraph,
are striking for Markle; and they, no doubt, are at
the bottom of the whole movement. They use the
most deeperale means to succeed ; but the people,
who are tired of following in their wake, will take
a short turn upon these rule or ruin" leaders.—
We say nothing against their favorite, (;en. Joseph
Markle, for we know but little about him; nor has
his " fame" reached this "meridian." We are

I was pleased to sec a call in said paper signed
by Gwts chairman of the County Commit
tee inviting the democracy to send delegates to a
County Convention, to be held in Huntingdon, on
„ Tuesday evening, the 9th of January" (last) "to
select delegates to represent Huntingdon County in
the democratic State Convention, &c &c." Well,
the time came, and passed, and I heard that ouch
Convention was held, and that the two gentlemen
were appointed delegates to the 4th of March Con
vention, but on looking over the "Globe" I found
no notice whatever taken of the Convention, until
two or three weeks after the time said Convention
teas to meet, according to the call. A preamble and
resolutions relative to the government of future
County Conventions submitted by Thaddeus Banks,
Esq., were published in that paper, but no notice
was given of any other proceedings. Such being
the state of the case, diversity of opinion prevails in
OUT township, one party says, that a Convention
was held, which most unanimously discharged its
duties, and for the truth of their declaration refer to
the township delegates, both of whom fully sustain
them; another party says that the Convention did
not meet, and in evidence of their opinion refer to
the "Globe," which does not contain any notice of
its proceedings, they say that the t Mho" pledgeit
itself, in its opening address, "to uphold the dele
gate system," to sustain "all its" (the democratic
party,) "regular nominations," to rebuke "every
factious ntovement, from what ever source it may
come, sit ;" and that of course a paper thuspledged
would not attempt to STIFLE the voice of the rep
resentatives of the people. Now, sir, I wish to
know from you, as you were on the spot, and of
course, know all about it, being an Editor, whether
such Convention was held, and whether delegates
were appointed. I cannot think, until I hear so
frotn some one disinterested, that a paper claiming
to be democratic, and dependant upon the party for
its support, would thus deliberately set up its opin
ion, in opposition to the voice of the democracy,
and in doing so violate its solemn contract mode
with its subscriberswhen they gave it their support.

Printer's Investigation.
The committee appointed to inquire into the al
leged frauds in the election of State Printers, final
ly closed its labors, and reported to each branch of
the Legislature on Wednesday last. The committee
reported the testimony taken only, so that the whole
subject is now again in the hands of the two bran
ches, and will no doubt undergo another thorough
discussion before it is finally settled. In the House
2000 copies of the testimony were ordered to be
Calhoun Withdrawn.
The Charleston papers of tile 29th ult., contain
a long Address from John C. Calhoun to his politi
cal friends and supporters, assigning his reasons for
not permitting his name to go before the proposed
Convention, to be held in Baltimore in May next.
The Charleston Courier says that between Mr. Van
Buren and Mr. Clay, John C. Calhoun will main
tain an armed neutrality. Want of time and space
permit us merely to mention the above fact to-day.
tCr During the year 1843 there were 304 vessels
lost at sea--61 of which belonged to Great Britain.
There were also several others of which we have
no account, except that they were passed at sea, and
have never since been heard from.
To the above we are pained to add that six hun
dred and forty-two lives have been lost. Ten ves
sels have been reported as missing, whose crews it
is to be feared have all perished.
cd. Sir H. Pottinger, British Plenipotentiary in
Venusylvania Legislature.
The Harrisburg Inteltigencer of the 2d inst. says
—The Legislature have been in session precisely
one month to-day, and although a similar body, per
haps, never assembled under a more imperious sense
of duty to enter at once upon the transaction of the
important business confided to them, we aver with
out the fear of any one daring to contradict our
statement, that for all the good interests for which
they assembled, a tea-table coterie of old women
could have done more good in a single afternoon,
than they have accomplished in all this time. Nay,
we will go further, and say that up to the present,
their humbug legislation—so far from proving in
the slightest degree beneficial to the Commonwealth,
has actually operated adverse to its interests—that
so far from having done any thing to retrieve onr
sinking credit, they have but plunged us deeper in
the mire—so far from having advanced one step to
retrieve our honor, they have branded the Com
monwealth with a more scathing disgrace if possi
ble than that which before marked it for the sneers
and scorn of the civilized world.
What have our Solons' done during the past
month—what mighty interests of the Common
wealth have received their grave consideration I'
Tell it not upon the mart where our credit is alrea
dy the jest of every stock-jobber—proclaim it not to
the world, in whose eyes we are already branded
with disgrace and infamy—whispor it not within
the precincts of Bond street where our dishonored
State bonds are the subject of writhing sarcasm and
bitter jest—a tehole month has been wasted—liter
ally wasted in hypocritical whinings about " re
trenchment atl4 reform !—retrenchment that may
justly be styled a most reckless profligacy—a reform
that is calculated but to plunge us deeper in the
mire of disgrace.
The present is styled par-excellence—a " Re
trenchment and Reform Legislature."—"Retrench
ment and Reform !"—Heaven save the mark! To
give the people of Pennsylvania an idea of the kind
of "retrenchment and reform" that their represen
tatives prate about so much and care so little, we
would inform them that one half the time already
wasted, has been occupied in discussing the merits
of the most trifling propositions. When the peo- '
pie are told that at IeastTWENTY THOUSAND
DOLLARS have been wasted in the bare DIS
CUSSION of party measures, they will be better
enabled to judge what is meant by this favorite text
for Legislative Buncombe speeches, and perchance
they will not have quite so exalted an opinion of
those of their representatives, who having no per
sonal popularity of their own, are compelled to re
sort to the most contemptible and hypocritical ex
pedients to attain that consideration which they can
never hope to reach in any other way—most of
them being lamentably destitute of those high-min
ded and honorable Rrinciples by which men of ster
ling worth and integrity never fail to acquire the
confidence and respect of the people.
A matter which has already cost ten times more
than it con ever, by any possibility, come to, is the
4 , Printing Question," and the results growing out
of it. It has been usual, heretofore, for each House
to elect three printers to do the public work, but so
flagrant were the abuses and so vexeilous the diffi
culties arising from this system, that nearly the
whole time of the Legislature was occupied in de
vising a means to remedy the evil. At length, after
being repeatedly thwarted by the Executive, a bill
was passed by the aid of the Whigs, and received
the signature of the Governor, providing for the
election of Stale Printers to do the work in the
English and German languages, and under its
wholesome provisions certain gentlemen wore dully
elected for the ensuing three years. This was fond
ly hoped would settle for a time at least all the dart
collies, vexations and abuses which had occupied
so much of the time of preceding Legislatures, and
leave the representatives of the people for the next
three years free to attend to the legitimate duties for
which they were to assemble. It chanced, however,
that the persons chosen State Printers, were not
such as to please His Excellency, the Governor, and
inasmuch as by the law he was required Co approve
the bond, he abused the ministerial duty confidsd to
him, and made use of a contemptible quibble to
treat the election as if it had never been held.—
, Charges of bribery and corruption were gravely
promulgated by one who is admitted on all hands,
to be himself the most corrupt and unprincipled
demagogue that ever betrayed a party, or disgraced
a State ; and the Legislature, instead of rebuking
the Executive interference, and treating the impu
tations which had been cast upon their body, with a
proper contempt, very gravely constitute a commit
tee of Investigation, which after putting the Com
monwealth to a greater expense than the printing
itself would have amounted to for the whole session,
elicited nothing but what was well known at the
time the election was held, and what has since been
the subject of common conversation.
The main object for which the Legislative and
Executive Departments of our government were
constituted, was to make laws for the promotion of
the general good—which, once solemnly enacted,
it is the duty of the Executive to see that they are
faithfully executed. Had he attended to his duty
in a proper manner, the Legislature at the opening
of the Session, would have had all the important
documents printed and laid on their desks, and they
could at once have entered upon the discussion of
those important matters which so imperiously de
, mond their attention. Had this been done, we are
persuaded the firet of February would not have been
permitted to pass without some action upon those
momentous questions, which should properly have
first claimed the attention of the people's represen
tatives. What, we should like to know, do the
great body of the people care who are elected the
officers of the Senate or House--clerks, doorkeepers,
sergeant-at-arms or printers, so that their duties are
faitkfuliy performed? What matters it to them
whether these officers are Whigs, or Locofocos--
Tyler men, or Porter men 1 Suppose that combi
nations calculated to influence the votes of members
of the last Legislature did exist, what security have
the people that more powerful combinations—com
binations with the grant dispenser of patronage and
pardons, David it. Porter, himself at their head, do
not now exist, and are not now exercising the whole
weight of their influence upon the members of the
present body? Are the members of this Legisla
ture more pure and incorruptible than those of last
year How aro the people to know that a system of
bribery and corruption is not even now going on
that will require to be investigated by the next Le
gislature These are plain, common sense ques
tions that must occur to every one. How absurd
then was it to make such an ado about nothing, put
the Commonwealth to an expense of thousands of
dollars, and postpone the legitimate business for
which they assembled, to follow up the vague and
indefinite charges of the Executive in the manner
they have done?
We trust that tlte members of the Legislature,
and especially the Whig members—the great body
of whom we know to be governed by the moat
honorable and high minded principles, and who
scorn an alliance with any thing that is mean and
contemptible—will frown down the attempts that
have been made to waste the whole time of the
session is gravely discussing the two-and-sixpence
measures, while those more important provisions
for the maintenance of our credit are unattended to.
The people are in favor of " retrenchment and re
form"—a retrenchment of the time of their legisla
tors to the legitimate business for which they have
assembled, end a reform of the flagrant usurpations
and corrupt and unprincipled abuses which for the
last four or five years have disgraced the Executive
department of government. Let them apply the
corrective to these flagrant abuses in high quarters
and the smaller ones will follow in the natural
course of things.
From Mexico.
By the arrival of the brig Lime Rock, on the
18th ult. ? at New Orleans, files of Mexican papers
to the 30th December, wore received by the Dee.—
Santa Anna had issued a decree expelling from the
Californians and New Mexico all Americans, citi
zens of the United States; but that our minister,
General Waddy Thompson, had remonstrated so
warmly on the subject, declaring that in case of its
enforcement he would immediately demand his pass
port, that the decree was revoked within 24 hours
after its promulgation.
Another version is that Mr. Thompson declared
that if the decree was not fulfilled, he would quit
Mexico, with or without his passport. However
this may be, the principle fact may be considered as
positive. It is stated that the decree had been pro
mulgated under the influence or extreme mental
irritation caused by the reception of President Ty
ler's Message in the city of Mexico.
It is rumored that Gen. Thompson has changed
his views in regard to his resignation, and intends
Isimply asking for a temporary leave of absence.
The Mexican schooner Montezuma left Vera
Cruz on the 26th ult., for Campeachy, having on
board the Commissioners of Youcatan,—who were
on their return, after having settled all existing trou
bles to the satisfaction of both parties.
Much excitement prevailed at Vera Cruz about
the period of the departure of the Lime Rock, on
account of rumored quarrels between Mexico and
Great Britain.

The injunction of secrecy having been removed,
publication has been given to an interesting message
from President Houston, communicated to the Sen
ate on the 22d December. It paints in deplorable
colors the situation of the Texian navy, traces its
history for the last twelve months, contends that it
has proved inefficient and cannot be supported in
the present crippled condition of the financies of the
i Government, and finally recommends the dismant
ling of the Navy and the sale of the vessels com
posing it. This message was followed by a bill to
authorize the sale of the ship Austin, the brigs
Wharton and Archer, and the schooner San Ber
An important bill was before Congress at the
iciest accounts, entitled, An Act concerning the re
lease c,f captive Toxin's in Mexico. It provides
that if certain information of the release of the
Texian captives in Mexico, be not received by the
President, on or before the first day of March, the
Major General of militia is required to make a pub
lic call for volunteers, to repair to his standard at
some place designated, west of the Guadaloupe, for
an offensive campaign against the towns and settle
ments of the Mexicans, situated in the valley of the
Rio Grande. It further provides that the army thus
organized, shall endeavor to procure a sufficient
number of Mexican prisoners, of the highest rank
and consideration, to be held as hostages for the
good treatment of the Texian captives; that the
warfare shall be transferred to the Mexican soil;
and that the Texian troops shall be supported and
paid by confiscation of property and forcing could
j butions.

ing from Judge Story :
"To the honor, the eternal honor of the sex, be
it said, that, in the path of duty, no sacrifice is with
them too high or too dear. Nothing is with them
impossible, but to shrink from what love, honor,
innocence and religion require. The voice of plea
sure or of power may pass by unheeded, but the
voice of affliction never. The chamber of the sick,
the pillow of the dying, the vigils of the dead, the
altar of ;'religion, never missed the presence of the
sympathies of woman. Timid though she be, and
the winds of heaven may not too roughly visit her,
on such occasions she loses all sense of danger, and
assumes a pertenatural courage which knows not
and fears not consequences. Then she displays
the undaunted spirit which neither courts difficul
ties nor evades them; that resignation which utters
I neither murmurs nor regrets, and that patience in
suffering which seems victorious over death itself.

On or about the 13th day of October, 1841 , I
was taken - with a violent pain in the side, near the
liver, which continued for about five days, and was
followed by the breaking of an ulcer, or abscess,
inwardly, which relieved the pain a little, but caus
ed me to throw up a great quantity of offensive mat
ter, and also much blood. Being greatly alarmed
at tins, I applied to a physician, but he said lie
thought he could do but little for me except give me
some Mercury Pills, which I refused to take, feeling
satisfied that they could do me no good ; many oth
er remedies were then procured by my wife and
friends, but none did me any good-and the discharge
of blood and corruption still continued every few
I days, and at last became so offensive that I could
scarcely breathe. I was also seized with a violent
Cough, which at times caused me ro raise much
more blood than I had done before—and my disease
continued in this way, still growing worse, until
February, when all hope of my recovery was given
up, and my friends all thought I would die of a
galloping Consumption. At this moment, when
my life was apparently drawing near its close, I
heard of Dr. Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry, and
got a bottle, which relieved me immediately ; and,
by the use of only three bottles of this medicine, all
my pains were removed—my cough and spitting of
blood and corruption entirely stopped, and in a few
weeks my health was so far restored as to enable
the to work at my trade, (which is a carpenter,) and
up to this lilac I have enjoyed good health.
