The Sinking Fund.—The State Debt.
There is a matter of more than ordinary
importance under discussion throughout
the State at the present time, with refer
ence to the great struggle to take place
on the second Tuesday in October. It is
a question in which every citizen of
may be said to have immediate in
terest. We allude to the onanuai.
!QUIDATION OF THE STATE DEBT, AND
THUS THE URADUAL REDITTION OF THE
TAXES OF THE PEOPLE, and the re-estab
lishment, on a basis of the highest character,
of the financial reputation of Pennsylvania.
The indebtedness of this State for sonic
years past, has been enormous. The ag
gregate is over FORTY MILLIONS. Hence,
the necessity existed, and still exists, of
imposing a very heavy rate of taxation, in
order to secure the prompt payment of the
interest on this sum, and this too, in ad
dition to the amount necessary to liquidate
the ordinary expenses of the Government.
True, this heavy indebtedness was created,
in a great measure, by the construction of
our splendid system of public improvements
—a system that constitutes a noble monu
ment to the enterprise of Pennsylvania.—
But, if the policy be continued from year
to year, of increasing the debt, without
providing any plan of gradual but certain
liquidation, the financial condition of the
State would soon bo lamentable indeed.—
the taxation would become too oppressive
to bear—the people in season of adversity
would be unable to comply with enact
of the Legislature, and the credit
of Pennsylvania, would receive a shock,'
calculated to depress and prostrate it for
Iyears. This view of the subject was no
doubt taken at the time the enlightened
and sagacious measure of a Sinking Fund
was suggested and established. From that
moment public confidence revived, the
credit of the State was quickened into new
life, and the bonds of Pennsylvania ^: ere
sought with the utmost avidity by capital
ists. They are now, and for some time
past have been, above par—thanks to the
v.,' ;Hance and economy which have charac
, terized the most important Administrative
branches of our State Government for sev
eral years. The qustion for the people to
decide at the coming election, is—whether
this condition of affairs shall continue—
whether the financial policy of the present
time shall be sustained—whether the State
Debt shall be gradually, but certainly li
quidated, and the general taxation he re
duced? This, we repeat, is an important
matter, and one that the citizens should
think of in time. It is strange, but not
less true, that while our political opponents
when in power, have constantly increased
the indebtedness of the State, our politi
cal friends the Whigs, have, when the
reins of goverinnent were confided to their
hands as constantly reduced it.—Philuda
The following admirable hit is from the
Berks and Schuylkill Journal:

This is all "fair and square" and ac
cording to law. Senators and members of
Congress and the Legislature, jurymep,
witnesses, &c., &c., receive mileage, and
why should not the Speaker of the - Senate,
suddenly. called to the seat of Government
.from a distance to act in the oapaeity of
Governor, when the Locofoco Speaker of
the House, who administered the oath of
office to Gov. Johnston charged both pay
and mileage and received $77 25 for his
services! But the Union has forgotten
to give the credit side of the account.—

From 1841-2 to 1846-7 the consump
tion of cotton goods increased 40 per cent,
and had it continued to increase at the
same rate wo should now consume to the'
extent of 900,000 bales.
In the same period the consumption of
iron grow from 350,000 to 950,000 tone,
and had it continued at the same rate, we
should now consume two millions and a
half of tons.
From 1841 to 1847 the consumption of
coal grew from 1,100,000 to 3,000,000 of
tons, and had it continued at the same
rate, it would now reach eight millions.
With such a growth, the domestic mar
ket for the farmer and planter would have
grown more than one hundred millions ,of
dollars, and the necessity for depending
on foreign markets would have so far di
minished that it would have been left for
them to determine for themselves when
they would sell, and at what price they
. Prosperous farmers would have had no
need to pray for the potato rot, nor would
prosperous planters have had to pray for
Instead of thus waxing together, all
have waned together. The consumption
of cotton has diminished in amount ; that
of iron has greatly diminished ; that of coal
has but little increased, and that increase
is due alone to the substitution of steam
for sails, a substitution that would have
gone on with twice the rapidity had the
manufacture of cotton and woolen cloths
and of iron been permitted to increase.-- 1
The farmer finds his wheat falling in price
from day to.day, with no hope of rise un
less he can be favored by Providence with
a repetition of the starvation of 1846-47,
and the planter sees his cotton, with the
small crop of 2,300,000 bales, have al
-1 ready fallen almost to the low prices of
11848, and has before him the prospect of .
of crops of three millions, with a fall or
price that must bring with them certain'
1 ruin.—X. Y. Tribune.
The Difference between Whigs and
Mr. Bigler's Pittiburg speech containe
"The crisis of MN was one in which I
had to bear a part. This was a period
when the State credit was prostrated; when
repudiation was openly asserted to be our
only hope of getting rid of the enormous
burthen under which we were g roaning, and
it was certainly a time which required at
least as much prudence, filminess, and skill
in governmental affairs as is claimed by
and for those who now boast of having
these qualities to so high a degree."
It is will to ranker that it was under
Locofoco rule, that this crisis came—that
the State credit was prostrated, and that
repudiation was openly avowed! Under
Whig rule the State credit is firm. State
stocks wore worth 67 cents in the dollar
when Gov. Johnston came in. They are
now worth dollar for dollar and afford a
safe and excellent investment ! The State
Debt is being paid and already have the
hearts of tax payers been made glad by
the welcome tidings, that
NV 9 9 122 OS !
of the principal of the Public Debt has
been paid by Coy. Johnston. Which re
port do you prefer—that of Locofoco
barrasment or Whig payment of Debt?
Are the Whip; Organized T
Are the Whigs over the State aware of
the importance of an organization that will
bring out their entire vole? Are they
sensible of the importance of such an or
ganization in every county, town, township
and every school district in the State?—
Do they know that a full Whig vote (and
none but a full Whig vote) is a WHIG
VICTORY ! The day of trial is near—
only three weeks stud the question as to
the policy that Pennsylvania approves is
to be decided. Arouse then, Whigs, as
ono man, and assist in bearing aloft and in
triumph the noble banner of PROTEC
TION TO OUR OWN LABOR—and the
eventual repeal of all State Taxes by the
PAYMENT OF THE STATE DEBT,
through the operation of GOV. JOHN
STON'S SINKING FUND ! You have a
noble Cause and a noble leader.—Rally'
around the banner then, ono and all, with
a zeal, unanimity and resolution that en

A few Fwots—Cousider Them
Is it a fact that Pennsylvania stands
untarnished in her federal relations ? /s,
it a fact that she enjoys in this respect a l
position of which she may well be proud?
is it a fact that her internal affairs are in
a condition equally prosperous z Is it a
fact that her internal improvements are
proceeding at a rate commensurate with
the progress of a great and flourishing
State ? Is it a fact that her State debt
has been diminished ? Is it a fact that
the interest upon it has been promptly
paid ? Is it moreover, a fact that these
things have been done under the Whig ad
ministration of Wm. F. Johnston ? If
these are the facts, let the voters of Penn
sylvania remember them in the coming
election, and put the stamp of dishonesty
upon any party that would filch us of the
honor which belongs to us. 64 Give unto
Caisar the things that are Cwsar's." If
these are facts then the credit is due to
the party which carried forward and gave
success to the measures which led to those
Cir Gov. Johnston has already paid off
snore than half a million of the State Debt.
Under his rule it will continue to be can
celled at the rate of a million a year, and
that too without increasing the taxes of the
Col. Bigler, on the other hand, has ex
plicitly avowed himself in favor of an in
crease of the Debt. In a speech re
cently delivered In Bradford county, he
said he was in favor of borrowing a mil
lion and a half to complete the North
Branch Canal. This would of course add
that amount. to the debt.
It is for tax-payers to choose between
these two candidates.
Mr. Bigler not a Raftsmaa
Mr. Bigler is called a raftsman. This
is not his occupation. He probably never
cut a log of timber in his life. He has a
store in the town of Clearfield—and spec
ulates in lumber. He trades goods for
lumber, and then sends it to market. His
occupation is that of a store-keeper, and
lumber-merchant. He once was a printer,
and was in the habit (so says one of his
biographers) of returning after the labors
of the day, into his sanctum, and there
"studying military tactics and political
jurispruderice." By these studies he quali-•
fled himself for the rank of Colonel and the
business of a politician and became as
much distinguished in war as in peace.
A CIREAT CURIOSITY.—We saw yester
day one of the greatest curiosities ever ex
hibited in this city. It was a negro boy
shout five years old, born in Shelby coun
ty. from jet black parents, and while one
half of his body was as black as the skin of
his parents, the other half is as white and
fair as the skin of a white person. On
the white p6rtion there are numerous small
black spots, and on the black portion sever
al white spots. Take him all in all, he is
about as odd-looking a specimen of hu
manity as we have ever seen. lie belongs
to Mr. Jos. H. Oliver. We understand
he will be exhibited though the country.

most wonderful part of the spectacle was
