Democratic Harrison
The members of the Democratic Harrison party
of Pennsylvania—those who unite with them as
allies in the achievement of that glorious political
victory in 1840, the result of which was the elec
tion of that pure, venerated and much lamented
to the Presidents! Chair—those who have hitherto
consistently battled for " the Supremacy of the
Laws," who are opposed to all mysteries, whether
of the Government or otherwise, which are inacces
sible to the public eye—those who are opposed to
favored classes and monopolies either of office or
power—those who are tired of experiments upon
the Commerce, Manufactures and currency of the
country, and all others who are convinced of the
necessity of so reforming the abuses of the State
and National Government as to secure their prompt,
faithful, economical and energetic administration,
with a strict accountability to the people, on the
part of those by whom they are administered, aro
requested by the State Central Committee of the
Democatic Harrison party, to meet in their several
Counties and Districts, and in conformity with
former usages, to elect Delegates in proportion to
the number of Senators and Representatives in the
State Legislature from such Counties and Districts
to II STATE CONVENTION to be held at Harrisburg
en MONDAY, the 4th day of MARCH next, at
12 o'clock, M., to nominate a suitable candidate
or Governor, to be supported by the friends of good
order at their next General Election, and to do such
ether acts and things as may be deemed necessary.
The several County Committees will be careful
to give the proper notices in their respective counties.

Monroe County.
The 'Whigs of this county have instructed their
Delegate to the 4th of March Convention to sup
port Judge Banks for Governor.
COLUMBIA COUNTY has appointed a delegate
favorable to the nomination of Gen. IRVIN, and the
party in that county are very unanimous in his favor.
In Bradford county, the delegates have not yet
been chosen, but the Bradford Argus declares Gen.
IRVIN is the choice of the party in that county.
Qj Mr. LEE., the delegate from Clearfield
county to the 4th of March Convention, is a strong
friend of Gen. Invisr.
0i UsioN COUNTY has instructed her delegates
for Middleswarth. Gen. Irvin is the second choice
of Union county.
LYCOMING COUNTY has instructed her dele
gates for Gen. JAMES IRVIN.

"The Popular Congressman."
GE, Jaw, has been styled" the popular Con
gressman" by his friends; but as it has been asser
ted that no regard was paid to " to the fitness of
things" in the matter, we deem it well enough to
lay a few fads before the people, to enable them to
decide properly on the point at issue.
When a candidate for Congress in 1840, out of a
poll of 13,098 votes in his district, Gen. Irvin re
ceived a majority of 426. In 1841, when only 26
votes less were polled, Judge Banks was beaten in
the same counties 850 votes.
Now is this not a fair comparison, and does it
not conclusively prove Gen. Irvin a popular man—
for it cannot, with any regard to truth, be argued
that Judge Banks was unpopular.
But again :
In our present district Gen. Harrison's majority in
1840, was 645—Gen. Irvin's in 1843, was 1,336
Irvin's majority being 691 greater than that of Har
rison ! Has there not been some regard paid to
the fitness of things" in bestowing upon him the
flattering soubriquet of the popular Congress
man 1"
Aml again :
In 1841 Judge Banks was beaten in Centre,
Mifflin, Juniata and Huntingdon, 770 votes. In
1843, in the same counties, Gen. Irvin received a
majority of I,336—and this when there was a •con
siderable falling off from the vote of 1841, on both
sides. Had there been as full a vote polled in
1843 as in 1841, we may fairly infer that Gen.
Irvin's majority would have been proportionably
increased, and that instead of 1,336 his majority
would have approached 2,000.
But hero is another view of the case, that also
establishes the position of Gen. Irvin's friends, that
he is "the popular Congressman."
In 1836 our district gave 1599 majority against
the Whig candidate for Congress.
In 1838 Gen. Irvin was our candidate, and the
majority against us was reduced to 267 I—and that
when lie had Gen. Potter, the most popular Loci:if°.
co in the district, for a competitor.
At the next Congressional election, (1840) Gen.
Irvin was again our candidate, and still gaining on
our enemies, he beat his opponent (Gen. A. P.
Wilson) 428 votes!
In 1843, his popularity still swelling, lie gains
900 votes on his poll of 1840, and beats his oppo
nent in the " Great Gerrymander," 1336 votes !
Now can it be denied that Gen. Irvin is a popu
lar man in his district? Has he not revolutionized
it? and who will any longer dispute that there is a
fatness of things" in styling him " the popular
Congressman 1"
The Locofocos, wisely regarding the cvidcnco of
David It. Porter'e popularity is his vote when a
candidate for Senator, nominated him for Govern
or; and what was the result? Why the fact of his
overwhelming popularity at home, bore down with
such irresistable force upon his enemies that he was
triumphantly elected. So will it be if the Whigs
and Antimasons act as wisely, and take up an indi
vidual whose opponents can be met with the same
irresistablo weapon ;--and such an one in a pre-etn
eminent degree is Gen. Invix.
The state Taxes.
STATEMENT, showing the amount of State Tax
due the Commonwealth from the several counties,
for the years 1842 and 1843, furnished to the
House of Representatives by the Auditor General
on the Otis instant. The table for 1843 is imper-
feet, in consequence of some of the counties failing
to make returns. It will be seen that a large
amount of tax is still uncollected for 1842, and a
very large amount for 1943. In some of the coun
ties indeed, it is impossible to collect the taxes, be
cause the people have actually not got the money
to pay them, and cannot get it. In this state of
things, how would it be possible to collect the taxes,
under a system of augmented taxation?"

extract from the Bedford Inquirer shows that the
fair fame of the late distinguished CHARLES OGLE,

and that at least ono of the vile resurrectionists who
have desecrated the sancity of hia tomb, has been
branded by a Jury of the Country with the indelible
stamp of " CONVICTED L 'mama," notwithstand

saving him from dwelling within the walls of a

The bill to restore the tine imposed by Jhdge
Hall on General Andrew Jackson for contempt of

decision of this question was unexpected by the lo

it, during the pending election, presuming that the
Senate would reject it. It is a source of national
congratulation that this fruitful subject of locofoco
electioneering , humbug has at length been removed

From the Harrisburg Telegraph,
HomanarsminG, Feb. 1, 1844.
Mn. FENN:-[ notice in your• paper
of the 27th of January, a communication
over the signature of "Old Mifflin,' al•
though under garb of friendship to the
party, evidently intended to thwart the
claims, prejudice public opinion, and turn
the tide of popular favor into channels
other than those chosen by the people.—
It is lobe deeply regretted that persons
who attempt to "canvass the pretensions
of candidates for office," can be so lost to
generosity—so wanting in all the nobler
feelings of our nature, so far to forget what
is due toe fellow man, and so sadly mis
taken, as to consider the disparagement'
of one candidate an indispensible requis
ite to advance the claims of an opposing
—less worthy and less available man.
Whether the charges arc made direct,
or only by insinuation, the e'lB•ct is the
same—it is felt as a thrust at the people
through their favorite; and as such it will
be repelled in tones not to be misunder
stood nor disregarded.
In pressing GEN. IRVIN to the citi
zens of the State as a candidate worthy
of their support, it is nut contemplated
that he should rise upon the ruins of oth•
erg, or that his qualifications should be
made visible by the disparagement of
those who might be preNrred by others.
But, because he possesses in an eminent
degree, and comes fully up to the ,stand
aril of Jefferson—which was "is he hon
est, is lie capable ?" These two ques
tions alone, answered in the affirmative,
would have jastified his friends in urging
din as a candidate, to say nothing a - his
unbounded populaiiiy, which, to say the
least of it, is a worthy and weighty con
sideration under any circumstances, and
certainly where a party is in the minority,
as we are in this State.
Your correspondent, "Old Mifflin," al
ledges that Gen. btuis dubbed himself
with the imposing sobriequet of "the pop
ular Congressman;" which charge is en
entirely gratuitous, and without founda
tion. He then makes several other char
ges and innuendoes about manufacturing
public opinion, purchasing letter writers,
which are equally false—totally
destitute of truth. Theo, by way of a
clincher, he introduces a calculation, and
attempts to show by it that Judge Backs
is a inure popular Than than Gen. Irvin ;
relying, no doubt, on the credulity of his
readers is the old maxim, that figures
won't lie.
He takes the vote of Judge Banks in
1841, in this Congressional District, and
that of Gen. Irvin ►n 1843. which shows
that Judge Banks had 661 votes more
than Uen. Irvin, then forsooth, Banks is
the popular candidate and Irvin nut en
titled to the appropriate name of The
Popular Congressman. Now if figures
wont lie, there is nothing more certain
than that some calculators can make use
of them, when hard run, just to suit them
selves. The fact is, there were three
thousand four hundred and eighteen more
votes polled in this district in 1841 than
in 1843, which will satisfactorily account
for the plurality of Banks' vote.
1n.1840 there was pelted in this district,
that is, Huntingdon, Centre, Mifflin, and
Clinton, 13098 votes, of • which Irvin had
a majority of 926. In 1841 there was
polled in the same 13072, in which• Banks
was beaten 850, Thus in about the same
number of votes making Irvin 1276 votes
more than Banks, or Banks that many less
popular than Irvin. . .
\Ve VOW come to the present district,
Huntingdon, Centre, Mifflin and Juniata.
In 1841 Banks was beaten 770 votes; in
1843 llrvin's in:jority was 1336, making
Irvin 0107 votes 7169 re popular than Banks
or Banks that much less popular than Irvin,
and when, if there had been a full vote
polled, Irvin's majority would have been
increased five or six hundred.
This I trust, will satisfy the friends of
Gen. Irvin that he is justly entitled to the
enviable reputation of "the popular COO
gressman ;" which he earned by breaking
down the opposition . in a district that until
(lien was cunsidcred hopeless. Nominate
him now, and he will carry the State by a
triumphant majority; victory will surely
crown our efforts.
It is now too late to attempt to question
the ability of Irvin! lie has given
sufficient evidence of his being a man of
more than• ordinary . attainments ; a man
of sumod judgment aad discerning mind.
