Hand-bills were posted on the corners
of oar streets on Tuesday morning last,
calling on the friends of Gen. WIN
FIELD SCOTT to assemble in the Court
[louse on the evening of the same day.
Accordingly, the ringing of the bell in
the evening, brought together a very
large concourse of people, all anxious
to do honor to the conqueror of Mexico,
and to adopt measures to advance the
Whig cause generally. We have rarely
witnessed so large, respectable and en
thusinstic an assemblage of the People,
convened upon so short a notice and with.
so little effort. The conduct of the ad
ministration in its base attempt to dis
grace and humble the glorious old Hero
of two wars, has awakened among the
honest and patriotic yeomanry of the
country a feeling in his behalf which
nothing but the most ample justice to
Windfield Scott can allay.
The meeting was organized by up
pointing GEO. HUDSON, Esq., of Clay
township, President ; A. LONG of Shirley,

During the absence of the committee,

addressed the meeting in a strain of
most thrilling eloquence. He spoke fer-
vently and with great pathos of the
persecution of the late commander of
our gallant army in Mexico; and his ap-
peal to the friends of Gen. Scott to gird
on their armor and defend him against
the ruthless attacks of a most ungrate

The Bank Vetoes.
Gov. Shunk has vetoed the bills re
chartering the following banks, viz :
The Farmers' and Mechanics' Bank, of
I Philadelphia—the Columbia Bank and
t Bridge Company, of Columbia, the Far
mers' and Drovers' Bank of Waynes
burg, and the Chambersburg Bank, of
Chnmbersburg. It is said that the Leg
islature had deferred so far to the sup
posed wishes or prejudices of the Gov
ernor as to saddle the amended charters
with the individual liability clause: but
all in vain: Gov. Shunk has a love for
vetoes amounting to monomania or
rility—and nothing of public good, how
! ever vast and important, must be sup
posed worthy for a moment to stand be
tween his Excellency and his rattle.
I And thus, by the exercise of the dem
ocratic despotism of the veto, a single
man defeats, and is allowed to defeat, the
whole legislative power of the Common
' wealth, substituting his will and plea
' sure for the authority of the represen
tatives of the people as whim or caprice
may lead him. While this power is al
