gentlemen who hare on all occasions participated
and enlivened the debates of this useful end inter

perfect jam.
Stato Legislature.
We net without our usual Legislative letter this
week, and are es yet unaware of rho cause. It is
possible, however, that our correspondent did not
write on account of the entire barrenness of Legis
lative news. We see by the papers that nothing
of interest has transpired in either House since our
last, with perhaps the exception of the passage in
the House of the Judicial division of the Revenue
bill, the provisions of which reduces the salaries of
the Supreme and Distnct Court Judges. Tin
tuna of the Liver.° members was taken up during
nearly the whole week with the nomination of a
Commissioner candidate. There has nothing been
done in the House in regard to either the Central
Railroad or the Right of Way. As the Locofoco
Convention has adjournod, we shall likely have
some news iu regard to these two great projects for
our next paper.

Spring Illections.
We hope our Whig brethern will consider the
importance of the election of Judges and Inspec
tors of election., which are to be held in the re
ppeclive townships on Friday the 20111 day of
March inst. The partial success of the Locofocoe
last fall, enabled them to divide our county, in the
hope that they could place it under the rule of Lo
c.ifecoism for the future. Lel them never realize
that hope. There is still a NVhig majority of from
sIX to SEVEN HUNDRED in the old county,
as appears by the returns of the last Gubernatorial
and Fresidential elections. Every friend of the
country should be at hie post, ready to du his duty
et the spring elections, so as to prevent Lindero
ism from obtaining tire custody of the ballot boxes;
for there to no doubt but that the "li/toiler/I" will
tree every effort, no matter how foul, to make a
demonstration next fall, and carry the county if
possible. Let it be remembered that au important
election takes place in October, for member. of
Congress, Canal Commissioner, and county offi
cers; and recollecting that, let every man be on the
alert early.

Anonymous Writers—M. win
on the Tariff.
We do not often pay any attention to annony
mous correspondents of papers; but wo are inclined
to noticoscommunioation of a decidedly LOW . .co
character in tho last liollidtlaburg Registe6ehich
is prolesaedly a Whig, paper. The comMunica
lion, we have reason to believe, was, penned by
the editor of that paper, and we are somewhat for
tified in this belief by the fact that our brother of
the Register is blamed with often giving publicity
in that shape to obnoxious pieces, whicc it would
be too inconsistent to let appear as editorials.
The communication alluded to states that we
eulogized Mr. 141°11111.0v for having Morris town-
Alp divided, end abuse the traitor Gwin, whom it
characterize. as "the representative of the people
and not of a faction;" and the writer hesitates not
in pronouncing the traitor Gwin and Mr. Patterson
"faithful and worthy representiveie and adds,
"they. are entitled to the continued confidence of
every citizen of the new county of Blair es well as
of the unprejudiced 'of the county of Huntingdon."
If it were not for the course pursued by the
Register for the lest nine months,tve might well be
astonished at treeing such a communication in that
paper; but knowing that its chief avocation during
. the time specified has been to abuse Whigs and
eulogize Locofocos, we aro not at all surprised at
this feeler which it has now put forth.. We assert,
without the fear of contradiction, that no /Mg
would write such a communication, nor tvohtd any
Whig publish ii, the assertion of the author, who
j signs himself "NV," to the contrary notwithstand-

Are you ready to be turnad over to the support of
such a creature, who has rendered himself odious
to every friond of Pennsylvania interests, by his
abominable course towards the tneasUres which
protect 01l those interests? And Whet say you
Whigs of Blair county, are you ready fora bitterer
dose than was prepared for you last fall? Aro
you, bona. the Locofocos, to gratify a spirit of
persecution sad revenge, granted your petitions,
ready to swallow this creature whole? or will you
not rather in defiance of the wishes of those who
control what professes to be your organ, cast this
traitor front you, and as in times gone by, support

A nthracito Yurnacos.
We sce by a statement in the last Harrisburg
Telegraph, taken from the liailroad Journal, that
' there is now 34 Anthracite Furnaces is Pennsyl
vania, all of which are in blast, except 7. Those
in blast are capable of turning out 1300 tons of
iron per week, or 67,600 tons per annum. Those
erecting, and preparing to be put in blast, can pro
duce 500 ton. per week, or 26,000 tons per an
num—making the product of the whole 1800 tons
per week, or 93,600 tont per annum. The quan
tity of coal required to smelt a ton of iron, upon
the average, is 2i tons, which would wake a week
ly consumption of 45,000 tons of cool, amounting
to 234,000 tons per annum, in these works, merely
to run the ore into pig metal. Of the 27' furnaces
all except four have been put in blast since the,
passage of the Tariff of 1812. It is true that sev
eral others were built before that period, and blown
in, but were soon compelled to suspend operation.
In speaking of this subject the other day, en in
telligent friend of oars remarked, that the revenue
which the State would derive from having one hen
tired of those Anthracite furnaces located upon the
banks of her canals, would pay the interest upon
the State debt.
Tax•pupers of Pennsylvania, are you prepared
to sea tha destruction of thu present Tariff; which,
if let alone, will in a few years, produce the very
result of which our friend speaks?

loeofoeo State Convention.
This body, which met in Harrisburg on the 4th
inst., appears to have been rather a boisterows af
fair. The Harsisburg Intelligencer says: "The
hbur of ineetint. ; of the Convention wlts three
o'clock in tire afiernoon, and the rogliett bed I
scarcely arrived, when Gen. Porter Wilson, of '
Huntingdon, at She tap' of his voice, ruminated a
Mr. HALE so President of the Convention; and at
the same instant another delegate vociferated the
name of Gen. ROGERS for President. Thus the
melee commenced. Both nominees took the stand,
the friends of each shouting et the top of their
voices—. Hale !'—'Rogers l'—‘Rogers!
—'Hale!!!'—'Rogers!! f—intermin g led with bar
rel., shouts, hisses, groans, clapping and stamping
—the voices of the chairmen appealing to the Con
vention for 'order!'—'order!'--'order!'--and ma
, king on much clamor themselves as any body else—
and the various speakers, prominent amongst whom
we recognised Messrs. Brewster, Frazer, Brown,
I Reader, Wilson, Black, Rumford, and others of
equal celebrity, mounted upon the desks and tables,
trying to make themselves heard by shouting at the
top of their lungs, altogether presenting such a
I scene of disorder and confusion as beggars descrip
tion. After some ten minutes or more of this "con
fusion worse confounded," the tumult subsided in
a degree, and Mr. Charles Brown of ' , Buckshot"
memory, suceeeded in making himself heard, and
proposed that n vote be taken by yens and nays on
the appointmeht of the President, which was finally
agreed to, and resulted es followst—Rogere; St;
I I Hale, CC"
On the morning of the sth, the Convention was
permanently organized by the appointhleht of Br
Champneys, of Lancaster, ea President.
The anti-Foster men then offered resol'ution's in
quiring into the expediency of adjourning until
June, and in favor of rotation in office, all of which
were voted down; the State Administration havint
a large majority in the Convention.
Resolutions in favor of the one term principle
were then offered, and opposed by Brown of Phila
delphia, and Joshua F. Cox, the eenegato Whig
of Somerset county, and others.
They were replied to, says the by
Mr. Reynolds of Mifflin, and very ably Chi: suc
cessfully by Sam'l. Black, of Allegheny, tad Gen.
Wilson of Huntingdon. Mr. Black wax exceed
ingly happy, sarcastic and severe. The adminis
tration men fairly winced under the battery of sar
exam and wholesome truth which he levelled against
them. Mr. B. made by tar the most effective
speech in the Convention, which was evinced by
the repeated and hearty plaudits with which it was
greeted by the audience.
The ono term principle, however, was VOTED
nowt, and the Convention proceeded to the nomi
nation of a candidate for Canal Commissioner,
which resulted in the choice of Wm. D. Fusion,
Jr., by a vote of SO to 40, the latter being divided
amongst a number of other candidates. Mr. Fos
ter is a member of the present Board and has been
charged with using the patronage of his office to
secure his own nomination• nr thsh ~...t. ..e
But the worst act, says the Pa. Telegraph, was
left for the last. A resolution was reported in fa
vor of a revenue tariff with discriminations, in the
language of Polk and Walker, for protection of all
the interests of the country.
Mr. Mumma, a delegate from Dauphin county,
moved to amend the resolution by one asserting
that the Cont , ention approted of the Tariff of 1812,
and were opposed to its modification or repeal.
A debate sprung up on tide motion, in which the
cloven foot of free trade was fully exposed to view,
The Wolkerites made every attempt to dodge the
question, and finally suceeeded in laying both the
resolution and the amendment oh thy table. Thus
ended the labors of tho Convention, which, by re
fusing to give an expression of opinion in favor of
the present tariff has done more to prostrate Penn
sylvania, than a hundred Conventions can ilo to
!mild her up.
The question will now naturally arise, chn
Pennsylvania Ire whipped into the support of a
man uninitiated through the influence of his own
tion that refused to sustain the Tariff of 1842?
The Tariff;
The Washington correspondent of the North
American says:—"An estimate has been made
within a few days, of the actual veto that can be
relied upon for the existing Tariff, and 95 is tho
total ascertained. In addition to the Whig Coto,
10 aro expected front Pennsylvania, 2 from Mary
land, 2 from New Jersey, 2 from New York, and
3 scattering. There is an inclination in the Com
mittee of Ways and Means to report McKay's bill,
which Was prepared 'oy Gov. Wright two years
ago, and it would very probably command the
Democratic votes I have enumerated. At the final
test thorn will be several absentees, attd I still hold
to the conviction that whatever bill emanates from
the Committee, will be carried by a majority of
twenty votes or thereabouts.

In the Senate the Oregon debate hoe occupied the
week thus far, and continues to be the grand ob
ject of attraction. Although the Oregon question
line been discussed over and over again, and every
inch of ground occupied &sem of times, yet the
interest is as great as ever.
On Monday Mr. Breese occupied the Senate in
a profound and well studied speech, in which he
endeavored to show, beyond cavil, that our title to
Oregon up to 54 deg. 40 min. was clear. He re
viewed the speeches of the several Senators who
had preceded him, and differed with the moat of
' them in regard to the relative naval strength of the
United States and England. He looked upon
England as the weaker nation by far, owing to the
number of dependencies she is forced to keep in
aubjection, and hooted at the idea of her doing us
comparable injury.
On Tuesday Mr. Dayton took the floor, and was
strong in-favor of compromise. Up to 49 deg. he

and burlesqued his bombastic talk about war, un

Senators speech in his pocket, but was cure hi

Mr. Haywood resumed and concluded his re
marks this morning, in the Senate. Ho regarded
this whole debate as n grand electioneering scheme,
got up for the purpose of forcing certain gentlemen
prominently forward for the Presidency. He ridi
culed the idea of bringing the resolution of the
Baltimore Convention, relative to Texas and Ore
gon, before the Senate of the United Stales. He
went on to say if that resolution was administered
as a pledge, it was forgotten in the letter to Mr.
Polk informing him cf his nomination.
As soon alike had finished, Mr. Hannegan rose,
laboring apparently under the influence of much
passion, and was proceeding to inquire whether the
Ser-ator from North Carolina professed to represent'
the views of the President in his speech, when lie
was interrupted by Mr. Allen, who seemed unable,
to resist the strong excitement which agitated his
whole system, and who, in a boisteroua tone of
Voice, and in the most insulting manner, demanded
a categorical reply to the interrogatory propounded
by Mr. Hannegan—ho demanded it for the coun
try, and not for himself or the Senate. Mr. Hay
wood, whd manifested admirable calmnees and col
lection, refused an answer, when Allen renewed
the demand, in a tone of absolute fury, to which
Mr. Haywood signified he would neither give sat
isfaction, nor suffer himself to be catechised by any
member upon that floor—he also gave4llen to un
derstand in the plainest terms, he would be asha
mcd of himself if, holding the position of Chair
than of the Comnlittod on Foreign Affairs, the place
of all others supposed to enjoy confidential inter
course with the Executive department, ho was com
pelled to ask publicly, the eentiments of the Pres
ident. He thought it proved there was no love
lost between the parties, and no confidence wasted.
Mr. Hannegan then obtained the floor, and in
dulged in a strain of personal reflection, for which
he was called to order. Ho charged the . South
with Punio faith, in departing from the Baltimore
Resolutions, and said if the President deviated
from Rho purpose of maintaining, at every hazard,
our right to 54 40, ho would sink to the lowest
deep of degradation that ever fell to the lot of a
public man—that he would stand diegraced before
the world, and despised by his own country. Take
it all in all, it was a moat extraordinary scene for '
the Senate Chamber, and shown how far men will
allow themselves to be carried by partizan zeal.
The Committee on Naval Affairs, threngh Mr.
Stanton, reported a bill relative to coast and harbor

JCDOB Waoawuun has come bei . de tho public
with ei long address, explanatory of the causes
which led to his rejection by the U. S. Senate. It
appears that the Judges of the Supreme Court of
Pennsylvania remonstrated against hie confirma
tion, and Judge Woodward seems to think their
influence was the cause of his 'ejection.
Judge Woodward thus speaks of their honors on
the Supreme Bench of this State:
"From the time I voted for the limited tenure in
the Reforni Convention to this day, I have heard
nothing but reproaches of myself from Chief Jus
tics Gibson, Judge lingers and Judge Burnside. It

to write down the hard speeches and abusive epi

compelled for years to hear from these distinguish

with the nomination which they so much court,
their wrath seems to have burst all bounds. Self
respect forbids me to notice in detail the many un
kind things they have said of. me, btit it is time for
dram distinctly to underittand, that if thorn be not
