'" General Soseph Markle, the Whig and Antbnasonie Candidate for Go vernor. 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 be inappropriate. 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 incur. 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 1 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 cheers." The people in some sections of this county are already moving for General Harrison's " Fight ing Captain." Several meetings have been held. The Coons" are wide awake, and grin ning" the 1114 lies quite out of countenance.— Poor cripples they know they might as well give it up. At the April Court we must have a " Coon gath'• ering"—a real demonstration, after the fashion of 1840. "That same old Coon we saw beforo We'll see again in '44." Where'. the County Committee? Let a call be published next week for a meeting, and clear the Court House and a good piece around the outside. 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." Gov.:von. David R. Porter received 4,561 votes. Joseph Ritner, 0 2,315 0 Dem. majority on Governor, 2,246 . 4 CONG 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 twenty-five thousand." 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. "Blair County." 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, Nays 47. 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 follows: YEAS—Messrs. Adams, Anderegg, Bachman, Bennet, Boal, Brackenridge, Brush. Coleman, Con nor, Cook, Cummins, (Butler) Cummins, (Mifflin) Dickey, Dunlap, Elliott, Evans, Fancily, Gould, Herman, Hill, Hinehman, Kerr, Knox, Luling, Lawrence, Long, M'Caslin, M'Fadden, M'Wil llama, O'Bryan, Picking, Porter, Roumfort, San key, Shindel, Sturgeon, Tustin, Whattaker,Wilson, Snowden, Speaker-40. NAYS—Messrs. Ambrose, Bailey, Bishop, Bluir, Brady, Bright, Butler, Carpenter, Cooper, Cum ming, (Fayette) Deal, Dotts, Eckela, Edson, Hall, Hammer, Heck, Herr, Hineline, Jordan, Kauffman, Kugler, Macmanus. Metzger, Moore, Morgan, Musser, M'Ewen, M'Kinhey, Nicholson, Parke, Potteiger, Shattuck, Show, Smith, (Berke) Smith, (Lancaster) Smith, (Monroe) Smith, (Phil's. co.) Straub, Strauss, Toland, Trego, Urban, Weber, Whitman-4& So the bill was negatived. (0 - .. A bill defeated on second reading, by a vote on the first section, certainly meets very decided disapprobation. • Mauy of those who voted in the affirmative did so, no doubt, to compliment Mr. ltiWittiams, and would not vote for it on final reading. gz? A letter from Washington statos that the Grand Jury of the Criminal Court now in Session, (Judge DUNLAP, presiding,) have found a true bill against Jolts B. WELL., Member of Congress from the State of Ohio, for his assault upon Mr. Snaffles, of Baltimore. The Grand Jury have also found a bill against JULIAN MAT, the surviving principal in the duel between himself and Mr. COCHRANE. The seeends, Noma and Asne, are also indicted.
