Col. S. S. Wharton.
On account of the name of Col. Wharton
having been paraded before the public in
connection with the nomination for Survey
or General, without his consent or desire,
and possibly may have made the impression
that be wished the nomination, we deem it
but justice to the Col. to state that he was
not a candidate for that position, but in
tends, we learn, to be a candidate for a re
nomination to the Legislature at the Au
Murder Case in Philadelphia.
The trial of Arthur Spring, for the fien
dish and cruel murder of Honors Shaw
and Ellen Lynch, on Thursday night, the
11th inst., took place last week in the
Court of Oyer and Terminer, Philadelphia,
and reiulted in his cunviction, in the first
degree. We must say we have never
heard of, nor read of a murder surrounded
wit') more aggravating and horrifying cir
cumstances than those surrounding that of
which Arthur Spring was convicted.
From the facts and circutus'ances in the
case, it clearly appears that it was a Pre
meditated act on his part.
This wretch, who claimed to have the
sympathies and feelings of a man, and who
professed to be endowed with all the shin
ing attributes of humanity, watched the
opportunity when Ellen Lynch and Hono
rs, Shaw were alone, unprotected by the
hand of a husband or a friend, entered
their house in the dark and silent hours of
the night, and with a deadly weapon bru
tally murdered both of them—all too, for
the sake of a few paltry dollars, which he
hoped to procure and did procure, in the
event of having taken their lives. •
If this degraded and fiendish man is not
hung by the neck until he is dead, we hope
a law abolishing Capital punishment will
immediately pass-our• Legislature, for we
don't want any law of the kind. on our
Statute books—we need none.
In the ease of Spring, his son, about 18
years of age, was the chief witness against
him. On the. vrords of his lips the life of
his father, and the respectability of himself
and comlections hung.
But true to the noble instincts of an hon
est nature, and guided by the convictions,
of an unperverted conscience, he spoke the
words which must swing his father on the

Conventibti, Principles and Nom.
In another column will be found the pro
ceedings of the Whig State Convention held
at Lancaster on the 23d itat. The Con
vention was well attended, and a very res
pectable looking body it was.
The whole proceedings were characteri
sed with perfect harmony and unanimity.
The allegaticn, which originated with the
locofoco press, that the Whig party was
dissolved and had abandoned the principles
it had so often avowed, acid cherished with
such warm expressions of devotion, was so
completely falsified by the spirit and de
termination manifested in the Convention,
that it ought, if they were reasonable and
honest, to close the mouths of our political
opponents in all time to come.
Annihilate Whig principles! just as ea
sy could a human arm pluck'the stars from
their sockets, or stay the Sun in his course!
The party still lives in all its wanted
youthful vigor; defeat does not dishearten,
nor does beheading discourage.
Our principles must survive because they
are immortal; they have for their founda
tion truth, and for their final cause justice;
and we feel confident there is no Why in
the land who hesitates to avow the deter
mination, by them to live, and by them to
die. They are progressive as well as con
servative in their nature, and were it not
for the American influence they exert on
the minds of our people, our democratic
government would soon be crumbled to dust
by the wild and fanatical spirit of "Mani
Let the Whigs then universally, take
courage, for the battle in the end will cer
tainly be theirs.
They have nothing to fear for the glori
ous triumph of their principles, if they only
work as a unit.
Would that all felt tho binding foroe of
party obligation as strongly as do the
Whigs of Huntingdon County, and there
would then be no doubt of a victorious re
sult at our October election.
MOSES POWNALL, of Lancaster county,
the Whig nominee for Canal Commissioner,
is an intelligent, honest farmer, possessing
all the qualifications necessary to make an
efficient member of the Canal Board. And
if the Whigs of the State do their duty the
result will be his election. He is at pre
sent a member of the lower House of the
Legislature, and is said to be one of the
most industrious men there.
CHRISTIAN MYERS, of Clarion county,
the nominee for the office of Surveyor Gen
eral, has for some time been a member of
the State Senate, and is regarded as a very
reliable and" active partizan, possessing ev
ery requisite to honorably and faithfully
discharge the duties of the office. And his
election is placed beyond a doubt if the
party and 'his friends use the proper moans.
A. K. Moe Linty:, of Franklin county,
the nominee for Auditor General, is a
young man of unquestioned talent, and if
elected, which he will bo, to the position
for which he has been nominated, he will
do honor to the offico, himself, and the par
ty. Ile is the present editor of the Prank
lin Repository and Whig, one of the best
published papers in the interior of the State,
and has done valiant service in the cause
through several successive campaigns.
Whigs of Huntingdon County, rally to
the support of the ticket and let no one
say, we cannot conquer. In our opinion,
no better ticket could have been made by

Charles Brown, Collector of the Port;

Hael, Surveyor of the Port ; Captain Day,
Navy Agent; Gideon Wescott, Postmaster.
Ex-Governor Porter's claims were
strongly urged by Himself and his friends
for the Collectorship, but like in all his
other recent political speoulatiens,he failed.

This amount, however, has been reduced
by securities of one kink or another to about
$40,000, and it is hoped will be eventually ,
refunded altogether. The individual al
leged to have overdrawn, it is understood,
possesses earceiderable means.

sembly of Wisconsin have, by a voto of 46
to 27, ordered to be engrossed a bill abol

The West Tennessee Whig has a well
written article from which we copy the fol

yet they, after all compose the
great conservative element, the element of
strength in the country. Although in a
minority, it. is a powerful minority, and is
always liable to become a majority, and is
able to prevent the mischief that an un
scrupulous party might otherwise perpe
trate. This is no man or unimportant
position, and it is one in which great hon
or can be gained, and much good be done.
Let this position be maintained with steadi
ness, dignity, and perseverance, without
turning aside to this or that new name, and
if it cannot do much for the good of the
country, it can prevent much evil.
All the Whigs have to do is to be steady
in their aims and undivided in their efforts,
, disregarding the croakings of a few of their
I nominal friends on the one hand, and the
bullying of political bargadocios on the,
other. We have only to keep our ranks'
close and our arms in order to scatter the
foe in all directions at the first fair onset,
l and ensure ourselves and the true interests
of the country a complete,,and permanent
victory. Let no Whig despair of the Re
public. We have seen darker days, since
our advocacy of Whig principles, than
those which now hang over us. We help
ed to work the party out of those gloomy
days, and we can do so again. But if
there be any who think differently and are
inclined to despond, we would bid them
remember the glorious examples of other
times. Had the Whigs of 76 given way
lunder reverses the liberty we now enjoy
would have been 'denied us. Had the
Whigs of '39 given way under reverses,

adhering to them.
