Although this result was reached only after a ;
prolonged ballotting and by a small nmjority of the I
Delegates, we are glad to learn that it has been cor
dially concurred in not only by the unanimous
sanction of the Convention, but by the Whig press
and People so. far as their voices have yet been ex.
pressed. The nominee possesses unsullied integri
ty, proved patriotism and a courage that has been
tested by the actual ordeal of battle and of conflict.
A brief reference to his life and services may not
Gen. JOSEPH MARKLE, the Whig candidate
for Governor, was born in Berks county—his fami
ly comprising a part of the German yeomanry of
that section of the State,and many of Ita members still
residing there and enjoying the respect of their
neighbors. Joss. MAIIELE must have removed
to Westmoreland at an early age, and ho there en
gaged in the honest labors of a Farmer, which he
still prosecutes with untiring industry•. The com
mencement of the last War with England found
him busily employed in his agricultural toils, to
which was superadded the management of an ex
tensive Paper Mill and Merchant Grist Mill. The
disgraceful surrender of Hinz at Detroit having
left the entire North-western Frontier open to the
incursions of the British and their savage allies,
murder and rapine became rife among the thinly
settled outposts. Gen. HARRISON was then called
to take command of the American forces, not then
raised, and to repel the enemy. His celebrated ap.
peal for Volunteers was issued, and reached Gen-
MAAR'. in the midst of his private occupations
end surrounded by a family of helpless children.—
He at once responded to the call, and marched in
command of a troop of mounted Volunteers tojoin
Gen. HARRISON at his Head-Quarters in Ohio.—
On reaching Pittsburg he encountered unexpected
difficulties: neither munitions of war nor other
supplies for his men could he procured. To await
the slow action of the Government was to permit
the massacre of his fellow citizens to continue.—
Capt. MARBLE did not hesitate; (Lj' he went to
the Bank and OFFERED TO MORTGAGE
HIS FARM AND PROPERTY in Wedmore
land for Three Thousand Dollars, to be applied to
the purchase of articles imperatively required by his
men, and to enable them to proceed to the scene
of action. He was refused ; but tot discouraged,
he returned home—PLEDGED I lIS PROPERTY
IN ORDER TO RAISE THE NECESSARY
FUNDS, and rejoining his Troop at Pittsburg,
EQUIPPED THEM Awn warren. Orr TO HIS
POST. No one can dispute the disinterestedness
and love of country which led to en act like this.
In the days of antiquity such a proceeding would
have secured to its author the highest honors of the
Republic. It is said to have crippled Gen. MAO
aLR's resources for many years, 'ere he could dis-
charge this debt which his patriotism led him to
During his term of military service Gen. MAR.
K. was engaged in some of the severest actions
of the War, and underwent all the deprivations to
which a soldier in an unsettled wilderness is sub
ject. The battle of Mississinewa, in which he par
ticularly distinguished himself, was the first success
ful effort of our arms on the frontier.
" The expedition was undertaken in the depth of
winter, and the battle took place ono hundred and
twenty miles from the head-quarters of the army,
and one hundred miles beyond the limits of the
white settlement. The troops took with them only
five days' rations, and were absent EIGHTEEN DAYS.
The provisions were exhausted on the morning of
the battle, six days after the departure, and twelve
before the return of the expedition. The troops
were without tents ! eq. there were about five inched
of snow on the ground, and the principal subsist
ence was ;s p ice wood tea. "I have seen," says one
or the troops, describing the expedition, "General
MARKLE, often mustering Ida men, and regaling
hitneelf at the same time with a tin-cup full of
smoking spice-wood tea." The Pittsburg Mercury
of Dec. 18, 1812, contained the following letter
from Capt. Alexander of the Greensburg Volun
teers. It is dated,
MUNCT TOWN, Dec. 18, 1812.
" We arrived here yesterday morning,—attacked
and took this town. This morning we were attack
ed before day—had hard fighting—and were victo
rious. Capt. MARKLE HAS DISTINGUISH
ED HIMSELF. His company has suffered—
Waltz is killed and two or three others. About
thirteen of his men wounded—some severely.—
Capt. Butler's men fought bravely. Their fire was
destructive. So of Capt. Hopkins, and of every
other that fought. Capt. Butler had one man kill
ed, and four wounded. My men had little share
in the fight owing to our station; but they will
fight. We have thirty seven prisoner.. I think
the enemy suffered greatly. Behind almost every
I tree blood is seen. I think they have lost at
least filly or sixty. We will march on our return
this morning. We have no forage for our horses,
and are scarce of provisions. I think we will be
able to make our way."
At the sortie from Fort Meigs under (;en. Hsi
nrsole, great praise was awarded to Maim.. and
his troop for their bravery. Afterleaving the army
Gen. Mantua resumed his peaceful pursuits, in'
which he has continued until the present time, hap
py in the calm, retired vale of life and respected by
all who know him. Against his wishes he was run l i
in a strong Locofoco District for Congress in 1838;
in 1830 he was a member of the Whig National
Convention and satiated to put his old Commander,
Gen. lissalsoa, in nomination as a candidate for
President, and he was also chosen and served as a
member of the Electoral College of Pennsylvania
which in 1840 cart the vote of this State for that
venerated and lamented patriot. Gen. MARKLE is
now presented to the people by no agency of his
own, but by the action of his political friends as a
person worthy to occupy the Executive Chair of
this Commonwealth ; and they plead in his favor
his services, his honesty and the high testimony
which is borne to his capacity and virtues by those
who know him best.
That be is destined to be elected we have so
doubt. Besides his own merit, the fact that his op.
ponent, Mr. MOULENDERO, can never receive the
support of a very large proportion of his own politi
cal friends operates strongly in his favor. The
contrast between them is well drawn in the follow.
ing extract made by the Harrisburg Intelligences
from a speech delivered at a public meeting in that
Borough after the nominations had been made—
"The people of Pennsylvania have now placed
before them for the Chief Magistracy, two oldwar
riors—Gen. Markle and Gen. Mithknberg. The
former entered the army at the call of his country
and fought the Indians—the latter betook himself
to the Church to wage a war against the Devil.—
The great difference between them is this—General
Markle overcame the Indians, and retired quietly to
his farm : General Muhlenberg suffered himself to
be overcome by his adversary, the Devil, with the
tempting pumps of this wicked world."
And we might add that General Muntinneno
—ever since he was thus " overcome" by his Sa
tanic Majesty—has been fighting for his old ad_
vereary" in the ranks of Locofocoism.
We repeat that the Whigs are united in the sup
port of Gen. MARKLE. Although the ballottinge in
Convention were numerous, there was no ill-feeling;
and when the nomination was made, it was unani
mously and cordially affirmed. On Wednesday
evening the 6th inst., after the Convention adjourn
ed, a Whig meeting of ratification was held at
&antes' Hotel in Harrisburg, at which among
other addresses was one by the Hon. JAMES Inv's,
the favorite of the minority of the Convention, who
had reached town that day after attending to their
place of sepulture the remains of his deceased col
league, Gen. Fnicx. We copy a sketch of those
remarks of Gen. Turin, which are characteristic of
his manly disposition and express the pervading
feeling of the Whig party :
"At the close of Mr. Gibbons' speech General
lima was introduced, and received from the As.
sembly an enthusiastic welcome. The General
stated that he had been called from his post at
Washington, to perform the melancholy duty of
accompanying the body of his late colleague, Gen.
Frick, to his family in Northumberland; that it
would have been more in consonance with his own
feelings, had he declined attending the meeting, but
having been placed in nomination before the Whig
Convention as a candidate for the office of Gover
nor of Pennsylvania, and that Convention having
preferred another gentleman to himself, he felt it a
duty he owed to his friends and to the Whig Party,
to avail himself of the first public opportunity to
second the nomination that had been made and de
clare his determination to sustain it, and use every
exertions to secure the election of General Josten
MARKLE. He called upon his friends and upon
every Whig in the Commonwealth to do likewise.
Their candidate was an honest and a good man—
who had bravely served his country in the field, and
was now beloved and honored for his virtues and
his past services by all who knew him. Let the
people gather to his support—they ceuld elect him
triumphantly; and that triumph would insure ano
ther still more glorious—the triumph of Heirs
CLAY in the State of Pennsylvania. The General
returned his cordial thanks to the friends who had
given him their votes in the Convention and assur
ed them that it was no mortification to him to have
been defeated in that body by such a man as JOSEPH
MABEL. The meeting responded to the patriotic
sentiments of General lityrx with three hearty

The Game of Detraction Commen
ced. Meting out to Locofocoism
by their own Measure
The loco press has already commenced its course
of misrepresentation concerning Gen. MARKLE the
Whig nominee for Governor. The Harrisburg
Union leads off as follows:
In the fall of 1838 this same Gen. Markle was
the whig nominee for Congress irr the county of
Westmoreland, and was beaten by A. 0. Merchand,
Esq., only the trifle of two thousand five hundred
and twenty-five votes! and Mr. Markle was not
only the lowest candidate on the whig ticket, but
actually run nearly 200 votes behind even Mr.
Ritner. We append the vote polled for Governor
and Congress at the election, in order that the pro
ple of Pennsylvania may have an opportunity of
estimating the standing and character of the federal
nominee among those who know hem."
David R. Porter received 4,561 votes.
Joseph Ritner, 0 2,315 0
Dem. majority on Governor, 2,246 . 4
A. G. Merchand, received 4,656 votes.
Joseph Markle, 2,131 4.
Dem. majority on Congress, 2,525 ! a
The reason why Mr. Markle made so poor a race
in his own county was, the universal impression
of his total unfitness to occupy a seat in Congress,
and hence he rim nearly 200 votes behind the rest
of his ticket. We hazard nothing in the prediction
that he will be beaten much worse in old Wert
moreland for Governor than he was in 1838 for
Congress, and in the State lie will be defeated by
The Union knows well enough that the reasons
why Gen. MARKze ran behind his ticket, were
neither his unpopularity nor unfitness; that the
true causes were the utter impossibility of electing
a Whig member of Congress in the old Westmore
land District and the fact that lie was taken up in
' formally, shortly before the electien, no conferees
having been appointed by the different counties
composing the District to nominate a candidate.
It seems however a strange argument for the
Union to adduce, to prove a person unfit for office,
that he ran behind his ticket, or had before been
defeated, when it has the names of Van Buren,
Johnson and Muhlenberg at its mast head—all de
feated candidates—all the most decidedly unpopu
lar of their party ! If such arguments prove incom
petency, how is it with Van Buren, who was
entirely repudiated in 1832 by the locofocos of our
State and stricken off the Vice Presidential ticket?
Why was it ho made so " poor a race" in 1836,
when a majority of over 60,000, dwindled down to
a few inglorious thousands ! Why was it that he
was defeated in 1840? If to run behind a ticket
argues unfitness, why nominate Col. Johnson' for
the Vico Presidency, when the people of the nation
actually refused to put him there? If" actually to
run behind even Mr. Ritner," justifies a prediction
of defeat, as the Union would fain make us believe,
may not the Whigs go into the gubernatorial con
test rejoicingly, when they reflect that in 1895 the
present locofoco candidate far governor, then as
now the caucus nominee of the party, was far, far
behind Mr. Ritner.
The fact is, the character of Gen. MARBLE is so
pure and spotless, so far above the reach of any
shaft of political malignity; so opposite to the locos,
that we must not be surprised to find their ingenuity
taxed most ludicrously, for the material of that
offensive war which they will strive to carry on.—
Gen. Markle is a plain, honest German farmer, who
has never left his plough, except when Cincinna
tus-like, his country called him to repel an enemy
from our borders. These facts in his history may
prove distasteful to our political opponents, and
especially to Van Buren. Buchanan, Wilkins and
others who opposed the last war, while General
(then Captain) Markle was at the head of his troop
of cavalry, by the side of that old hero, known to
locofocoism as the 'petticoat General" and "old
granny Harrison," defending our frontier from sav
age incursions. If Markle's commander, the victor
of Tippecanoe and the Thames, could not escape
the malignant attacks of the anti-war federalists, it
is hardly to be expected that his humble sabaltem,
should be more fortunate! The Whigs, however,
have selected General Markle, for his unbending
integrity ; his well tried firmness and honesty ; his
entire disconnexion from all political cliques; his,
love of country, and his knowledge of the wants
and wishes of the people;—these reqUisites he pos
sesses in an eminent degree, and he is therefore as
sailed by the locofoco press.
We ask an honest investigation of his character
and a canvass of his claims. If he is not the man
for the emergency ; if the people think it would le
better to elevate Mr. Muldenberg, a political hack,
to the Governor's chair, we shall regret their delu
sion, but bow in submission to the will of the ma
jority. But we cannot for a moment believe that
Gen. Markle is not "the most proper man" to re
deem our State and bring back its golden times of
honest prosperity. The struggle we know will be
a tremendous one—it will be the dying effort of the
spoilers to retain their hold on the treasury—the last
gasp of expiring tyranny, which has ridden rough
shod over our State, and made our citizens the serfs
of a political aristotracy, rather than the free sons of
a free soil! The spirit is np ! the word has gone
I forth—their doom is written !—Forum.
Among the proceedings of the House of Repre
sentatives, on the 12th inst., we find the following.
The bill erecting a new county out of parts of
Huntingdon and Bedford counties, to be called
Blair, came up on second reading.
Mr. Macmanus moved the indefinite postpone
ment of the hill.
Mr. ]'Williams went intro a lengthy detail of
the reasons why this bill should pass, and urged
with force his reasons in reply to the arguments
used against its passage.
Mr. Brady opposed with zeal and warmth the
passage of the bill—alleging that the only reason
why the act was urged, was that Hollidaysburg
might be made a county town,
Mr. Blair followed in opposition to the bill on
the motion to postpone, and described the manner
in which the petitions were got up--they were gen
erally from irresponsible persons, nut property hol
ders, and trot interested in the welfare of the county.
On the question of indefinite postponement the
yeas and nays were called and were Yeas 39,
The previous question was called and sustained,
and on the question 'shall the main question be
now put,' it was determined in the affirmative.
The question on the amendment, striking out
the two townships in Bedford county, being put,
the yeas and nays were called, and were as follows,
Yeas 41, Nays 48.
The question recurring on the first section of the
bill, the yeas and nays were called and wore as
