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 Penn sylvania may be said to have immediate in terest. We allude to the onanuai. LI !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 ments 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 Inquirer. The following admirable hit is from the Berks and Schuylkill Journal: The Harrisburg Union publishes the fol lowing bill in bold type, under its editorial head : The Commonwealth, _ . Dr. to Wilt F.

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 would sell. . Prosperous farmers would have had no need to pray for the potato rot, nor would prosperous planters have had to pray for short crops. 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 Locofoco AdratinNtratons, Mr. Bigler's Pittiburg speech containe the following "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 cut 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 sures success. Let EVERY MAN but do his duty, and a, glorious triumph will bo the result. 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 NUMBER 38. 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 results. 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 community generally. 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. [Louisville Courier. TERRIFIC ASCENSION. The lust Parisian papers give the annex ed account of a recent balloon ascension there.—Por intrepidity end daring the feat is unparalleled. . On Sunday last, M. and Mine. Poiteven made their second ascent in a carriage and two horses Leon Faucher having been in duced to take back his prohibition. Im mediately beneath the ballon was a small car, in which an assistant took his place; from this hung the ropes and irons to which the carriage was made fast. The balloon rose, at the given signal, with its ponderous load, with all the race of a but terfly. Mme. Poitevan showered the spec tators with roses, and M. Peiteven the rains as uncoucernedly as if he was driving slow team out to Bloomingdale. But the most wonderful part of the spectacle was not down upon the bill, and was only vis ible to those who had fortified themselves with long macs and telescopes.--At the point where the naked eye lost power of vision, the magnifying glass revealed the following scene The ;lan in the car let down into the carriage sonic 12 feet below, a rope ladder; Up thi. wallthd Poiteven ' with a glib • 110S6 and unconcernedness postavely fright ful.

A thunder storm coming up, these intrepid remnants thought it best to get out of its way by going above it.— They therefore penetrated the muttering clouds that veiled the face of the sun, and in a few moments were perfectly high and dry. They descended in an hour and a half afterwards and found themselves about 45 miles front Paris. The next morning, the hotel where they had taken lodging for the night was besigeed by a crowd so dense, that the gend'arnieric had to be called upon to procure an exit for the par, ty. All the way back to the Capital it was a triumphal march. It was no use trying to travel incognito, having as they did, a bolloon to take care of, and one that you couldent hide under a bushel. They reentered the city, safe and sound, after ant abseence of twenty-four hours.
