*'The Louisville Courier, of the 4th inst.
says: °The Hon. E. W. McGaughey w•as nomi
nated at the Whig Convention holden on the 11 th
inst. at Rockville, Indiana, as a candidate for
Congress from the seventh district in that State.
He voted for the compromise measures, and de
fended their passage in a speech of marked shill
The Whig State Ticket.
The Whig State Convention met at Lan
caster on the 24th of Juno last, and placed in
nomination the ticket which appears at the head
of this number of our paper. Gov. JOHNSTON
was nominated by acclamation for the distinguish
ed post ho now fills, and of him it is unnedbssary
to pronounce any eulogies. The history of his
administration is his highest panegyric—an ad—
ministration peculiarly business-like in all its
features. His object has been to arrange the fi
nances of the Commonwealth, and to establish
upon a permanent basis all its business interests,
and in that way lay the foundation for the event
ual payment of the State debt withottt putting
any additional burthens upon the honest indiistry
of the people. The plan, thus far, appears to be
eminently practical, and if suffered to continue iu
operation will, assuredly subserve its purpose.—
This and other questions connected with the do
mestic economy of the State are the ones with
which be has to deal us the chief officer of this
Commonwealth ; and the great questions arising
out of the Federal Constitution and the laws in
pursuance of it, aro left to be decided upon and
enforced by an officer entirely competent to the
task. The President of the United States has
shown himself willing and able to carry out the
provisions of the Constitution, and has shown
himself prompt and efficient to enforce obedience
to the laws. Gov. iTonssrox has had the same
good fortune with that Constitution and those
laws of which he is the chief executive officer.—
Let no false issues, then, be raised in the coming
canvass—such as are slot applicable to Pennsyl
vania interests.—Keep In mind the coal beds, the
forgo hammers, the spinning wheels, the plows
and harrows, and the healthful management of
the people's money and let disunion demagogues
sink into the contempt and infamy they deserve.
Joint Sruonm, the candidate for Canal com
missioner, is proverbial for honesty and integrity,
and Lancaster county profilisa to send him out
with six thousand majority. When all other men
fail to do their duty, John Strati' has MA* been
known to desert his convictions of right:
The candidates for seats on the Supreme Bench
aro nil lawyers of the highest attainments in their
profession, the strictest integrity, and well devel
oped, comprehensive minds. COULTER and
Cusultans are members of the present bench,
and have filled their respective places with emi
nent ability, great satisfaction to the country, and
lin vc exhibited an urbanity in their intercourse with
the bar and the public, which eommends them to
general respect. Jriteur is the presiding Judge in
the Susquehanna and Bradford district, and is
a maa at spotless moral character, high order of
intellect, mad auserpassed Legal attainments. The
north claims hiss its the first of her sons.
Costhr, of Montour, and Menantrit, of Phila
delphia, never held judicial stations, hut they are
lawyers of the highest eminence, and capable of
filling any station. The name of Wm. M. Mere
dith, however, stands high up among the great
lawyers of the United States. This country is
incapable of furnishing his superior, and if the
picked lawyers of the world were to ha chosen
from, we know of none that we would select be
fore him. We are anxious to see the Supreme
Bench graced I.y a genius so ..,tependou,
Printers nre entitled to some recreation as well
as other white folks and as this is harvest-time we
have concluded that we will take an excursion
somewhere. consequently there will be no paper
issued from this office next week.
We have to nekhowledge our indebtedness to a
young friend fib two communications under the
signature of "Osceola." We this week publish
the poetry, and will, in our next number, place
the "PGlpit Rock" before the people. Mr. "Os
age will at all times be welcome to our colininis,
?Or in all his articles he bettlt)'s a 'very high or
der of genius.
"Major Jack Downing" can have his commu
nication whenever he sees proper to call for it.
We cannot publish it, for the reason that the au
thor has failed to comply with our rules—viz: tur
nisi& us with his name. Is the article intended for
Wit, Mr. "Downing? " If so, we respectfully ad
vise you to adopt the plan of the school-boy who
attempted drawing the fair proportions of a horse.
Being apprehensive that every person wottlil not
know what the critter was, be *rote tinder it
"This is a horse." So, Mr. "Dowding," if you
went your article to pass for wit, just write wit at
the bottom, and then people will know, for we
are certain nobody could find it out on reading
such a production as the one before us.
IVe have great respect for our young friend
who writes over the signature of " Independence"
but really we have serious apprehensions that
there is something personal in the artlcle and
therefore respectfully decline publishing it. We
shall be very happy to publish any article you may
write but you most avoid that which we have men
tioned. A little experience, in our humble judge
ment would make you an excellent writer but du
try uhd aboid itiVedive arid ridicule.
LOOK AT IT FOR A MOMENT.-Did ever scol
ding or Laughing at you make you a whit better?
Suppose a man calls you a liar do you not feel
like striking him in the face fur his insolence—
and you may at the same time feel conscious that
you have uttered an untruth but still harsh means
will not make you acknowledge. Such is human
nature. If we desired to win the world to our side
we would use the affections instead of the dagger.
We declined publishing a communication over
this signattlit some three weeks since, and assign
ed as our reason for doing so that the author had
not furnished us With his name. We also men
tioned that the article was somewhat personal its
its character, and that we desired time to reflect
upon its contents. Since then we have received
a very itnpertiuent letter Chaim Mr.-somebody
alledging that he was the anther of '‘ Cobb." He
should blush to make the acknowledgement l It
is a poor, weak atlitir at any-rate, and attacks
men who aro infinitely the superiors of its author.
Ile Nom some of them to possess hearts big
enought to people a township' and if they do oc
casionally get high there is one thing certain, they
are all incapable of getting tow.
We have inquired of various persons in regard
to the conduct of some of young friend at Bir
mingham and there is none attribute the excesses
you do to them, Mr. Cobb. In your letter of the
27 ult., you furnish us with your real name.
A gentleman will not insult us, and a vagrant
cannot! In your case, however, we have brought
into requisition a principle of charity we used to
adopt, viz :--that a voluntary fool is entitled tons
much compassion as a natural born idiot. We
therefore decline saying anything more on the sub
ject, other than this, a slanderer can hare no
place in our columns.
Campbell and Lewis.
The following delicious morcrau is from the pen
of friend Iliekok, of the Lewisburg Chronicle, a
pro:nine:it affil inn:tenth:l Democrat—one whose
voice has been frequently heard harraitheing his
fellow Democrats "on the stump." Ile is uni
versally esteemed by his party, and was spoken
of as the Democratic candidate for Congress in
his district, last fall. He but iterates the senti
ments of many prominent Demoefais ill this town
and vicinity, who wo have heard elpiess their
sentiments with regard to the Judicial nomina
tions. This is the extract:
"Judge Lewis is learned and capable; but his
thirst for notoriety leads him occasionally to run a
booless tilt against the authorities, and indulge in
disquisitions more fanciful than sound. The only
objection we have to Judge Campbell is that, so
far as we have been able to ascertain, be is almost
destitute of the requisite qualifications for the
high post to which he aspires. His vote in this
region will be very slim."
Piag of the Revolution.
There is now in Alexandria, Vu., the first flag
taken during the Revolution by General Wash
ington, front the Hessians, at Trenton. It is
CoMposed of silk, beautifully embroidered in nee
dle-work—the crown appears prominent, and the
date 1771 on the front. Also the identical flag
surrendered at the battle of Yorktown. It was
the flag of the seventh regiment, and now bears
this inscriptions "The surrender of Lord Corn
wallis being the Crowning glory of the complete
success of the American arms." The flag is of
rich silk, well perforated with bullet-holes m Gen
eral Washington's body-guard flag is also there—
silk, with fhe triottb, "Conquer or die."
Ltet r . MAtifit, of the National Observatory
at Washington, reports to the Secretary of the
Navy that an ephemeris for the new planet Irene
has been computed by Mr. Ferguson. The as
teroid is said to have nearly the brilliancy of a
star of the ninth magnitude! and has probably the
largest orbit of any of its numerous class, except
GEN. SCOTT.—Over one hundred and sixty pa
pers in the United States, already advocate Gen.
Scott's election. New England especially appears
to be preparing to give him a very heavy vote;
and they even promise, under his banner, to carry
New Mampshire and Maine.
IfrolvET Amon, late cashier of the State
Bank, Norris N. J. has been fuund guilty of the
charge against him—perjury—on the trial at
Gov. Johnston's Re-Nontinatton.
There is no man in this State, from one ex
treme to the other, and throughout the remotest
corners, who does not know, who does not feel,
and who does not acknowledge—if impartial and
honest minded—what Wm. F. Johnston has done
mnch to restore Penn's to the proud position 'from
wadi she had been dragged down by Democratic
misrate arid prodigality, and to place her again
before the world, with her standard "full high ad - -
vanced," and her honor untarnished. If be had
done nothing else to challenge approbation, this
one great act should call out such an expression
of favor as would ensure his re-election. Bat the
public records bear witness for him even more
strongly. They exhibit him on all occasions as
the foremost champion of every interest likely to
promote the welfare of the Commonwealth, of
every effort to secure her just influence in the
Union; and the courageous advocate of her rights,
her dignity and her cherished fume.
Shall it then be said that one who has achieved
so much shall be discarded merely to pacify parti
zan animosity?—Shall it be said that we aro in
sensible to such devoted and disinterested services?
Are the people of Pennsylvania prepared to cast
aside one who tins extorted admiration from all
sides, and been hailed with the cordial "well done
thou good and faithful servant?" Is there not
enough of State pride and State Justice to hon
or the man who has so truly honored Pennsylva
nia? These things cannot be, and we predict
they will not be. Our people are generous and
loyal-hearted. They are calm and discrimina
ting observers Of passing events, and they know
who are the real friends and who are the real ene
mies of the State. And they will act upon this
knowledge by giving Gov. Johnston their cordi
al approval at the ensuing election. Wo speak
with confidence, because we speak of men who
are worthy to be tilisted, slid who have their own
destinies lo shape.—North American.
William Bigler and Taxation.
We charged upoh Col. Bigler the fact that ho
voted for a tax on Lineal Inheritances, mid that
this tax would have operated heavily upon the
fitrmers, laborers and poor men. "The Demo
cratic Union" admits the fact, but says that Bigler
did this to pay the State debt, and that Gov. John
ston voted for a tax of the same kind. We ex
tract the following from "the Union:"
"We however, can tell the junto tlidt control
the organ a secret they seem to have overlooked.
If they will examine the Journal of the House of
Representatives for the year 1841 page 814, vol.l,
they will find Win. F. Johnston, the present
Governor, voting in favor of a tax on Lineal In
heritances, not to pay the principal of the State
debt, but to go into the Treasury for ordinary
There is a great difference Setween both the
times when, and the propositidtis which Gov.
Johnston and Bigler voted. GO: Jtihnsioh voted
for a propositidil of Mr. Hineliman, in 1841, when
the State was on the verge of repudiation, and
when it was impossible to borrow a dollar on the
faith of the State. Bigler voted in 1844, for a
proposition of Penniman of Philadelphia (in Sen
ate Journal, vol. 1, page 797, '44) to tax Lineal
inheritances, when the State had passed the repu
diation laws, owing to the beneficial influences of
the RELIEF L.tw of Gov. Johnston.
There was, too, great difierence in the proposi
tion. By the proposition of Mt. Hindman, es
tates of five thousand dollars were to he taxed
twenty cents on every hundred dollars; estates
from five thousand to ten thousand, were to he
taxed thirty cents on every hundred dollars; and
from ten thousand to fifteen thousand, were to be
taxed forty cents on every hundred dollars; and
so on increasing in the ratio of ten cents on every
hundred dollars of the clear value thereof, fur
every five thousand dollars of increase in the value
of the estate. It required that an estate should be
worth sixty thousand dollars &fore it could be taxed
one dollar for every hundred. jay renitiMan's pro
position, for which Bigler voted, a Lineal Inheri
tance tax of one dollar on the hundred was impos
ed on estates above two thousand dollars. Small
estrltes; stielt as those of thrtners and laborers,
were toted the saino as the estates of wealthy
bankers and nitrehants, and hence the burden of
taxation by the bill, for which Bigler voted, was
thrown mainly on the producing awl laboring
The public may judgo that the Union is wholly
unscrupulous by the following statement. Gov.
Johnston voted for a Lineal Inheritance tax,
"not to pay the principal of the State debt, but to gii
into the Treasury for ordinary purposes."—licro is
the proviso to the proposition of Mr. Madman :
"Provided, That all estates of a less value than
two thousand dollars shall be exempted from said
tax. And that the proceeds of said tax shall be,
and the same are hereby specifically appropriated
as follows: to the difiercnim between the tax on
said dividends, and the amount of interest due
and payable on the stock loan of three millions
hereby authorized, and the balance to be applied
to the fund now pledged flir the payment of the
Interest on the public debt of the State,"
At times when the States was orl the verge of
repudiation, Johnston voted to raise a tai, iihich
would hate operated most heavily on the wealthy,
but in 1844, Bigler voted for a toe that would
have operated most heavily on the farmer and la
The Lind Criticised.
The editor of the Minoreville Bulletin, visited
Philadelphia to hear Jenny Lind at her farewell
concert, and in his last paper says of her singing:
"Let our reader imagine himself attached to the
bob-tall of a large kite—gently and steadily he
ascends into the air, to an immense height, an;
til, at last, the string breaks, and he conies down
'wigglewaggle' (a very impressive word) artititig

let his imagination thus aid him, and it will be
useless for us to feebly portray the peculiarities of
her musical talent, for he has Jenny Lind herself

Wedding of Sleep to Music.
The French papers speak of a new invention
called a musical bed. It is so constructed that the
pressure of the body causes the performance of,
one or more Operas, according to the length of
the slumber. A dial is placed at the head of the
bed, with a minute hand to be set at the hour
when the sleeper wishes to wake; and when this
hour arrives, u grand finale is executed, from
Verdi, with imitations of trombones and kettle
drums, sufficiently loud not only to awaken but to
inspire a lively disposition to get up!
Testing the •Knoekers.'
A correspondent of the Cincimuitti Commer
cial recently paid a visit to the Rochester Knock
ers. As ono of the modes adopted with a view of
testing the reality of these spiritual manifestations,
he wrote down the names of a dozen deceased
persons, of distinguished eminence. He then de
sired to know of the 'spirits' if, in case he selected
one of the twelve, they would tell the disease of
which he died; to which an affirmative answer
was given; whoti, running his pencil down the
list, it rested upon the name of Martin Luther;
whereupon the "spirit" immediately communica
ted the important and astonishing information,
that the great Reformer died of delerium tremens.

The Pastoral Convention of Orthodox Congre:-
gational Ministers of New llatnpshire, at their
recent meetings, having been requested to take
action on the subject of the Fugitive Slave Law,
voted to lay the question on the table, "for
thought and deliberation for one year—then to be
made the order of the day immediately after the
public exercises in the afternoon." This re

The eccentric but shrewd George Monday
thinks the Democratic cause is ill-omened at pres

spirit was Lowry, and at Ilarriibarg was Black.
Tbis, George thinks, portends a lowering and black
political atmosphere. He says too that the North
ern Liberty Democratic meeting on Tuesday
evening, was opened by LITTLE, and closed by
SMALL; and therefore thinks the cause will come
nut at the wee end of the horn! We have little
skill in reading omens aad portents, but Amos
Kendall used to warm up the very cockles of the
heart of democracy in olden times, by less appall
ingOnens than these. Is 11Iunday to prove his
Locotoco Judicial Nominations.
We find in the Jejfersonian, an organ of the
Chester county democracy, an article from which
we extract the following paragraph :—" The tick
et is not such as we had a right to expect, nor
such as would have been formed if the corruptions
which disgrace the exercise of the elective fran-
ChM in Philadelphia, and which wero well re=
buked in the Harrisburg Convention by the scath

Curious Discovery in Bulgaria.
A very curious discovery has just been made
iu the province of Bulgaria, in Turkey. Some
Greek workmen, in digging near the village of
Rulamanieah and the town of lladeah, found a
large table of grey-colored marble ; they removed
it, and found one beneath exactly similar; having
removed that also, they saw a great itOtiiiigr tif
objects shining like gold and silver. Thhy hoe
wiled to the captain of the district, and that
functionary, assisted by two ecciesinities pro
ceeded to make an examination; They found
the skeleton of a man of Jai* statue, with a
copper helmet on his bead, surrounded by a thin
crown of gold; the hands and the arms up to
the elbows were stained with something of a
bronze color; in the right hand was a copper chain,
with an incense-box of the same metal, covered
with verdigris, on the third finger of the left hand
was a gold ring, with the figures in Roman char
cetera, 966. By the sides of the skeleton were
three cups in silver, very brilliant, and 26 cups in
iron, very rusty, but bearing traces allaying been
gildbd; therti ivero also nil immense number of
I nails, and about 500 arrows, of which the wood
was rotten and the points rusty. The skeleton
and the different articles were carefully packed up
and sent to Adrianople for examination.
