The Committee, always desirous of se• curing a fair and honorable alliance with other parties in this State who are hostile to the forcible extension of Slavery into free territory, considered that its duties would be discharged with greater eatisfac lion to its constituency. by .a•ting no ott stocks in th , way of such an alliance. A large number of our fellow-citizoits had ex pressed their preferences for Mr. Fillmore sac candidete for the Presidency. although their opinions on the queLtiun of Slavery extension were concurrent with those en. ! tertained by the Republican party. .A [res. tly the Republicans and Americans were united in support of the PPM' candidates forcertam State (Motto. In every county of 'he Commonwealth a fraterrul f e el ng existed between the masses t f the two par ties. In every county, with but one or two exceptions, they united on the same candidates for Congress and the State I,eg• islature, and a general desire was expres sad from all quarters of the State for a u nice on ono Electoral Ticket. About the middle of August a vetbal communication was made by Mr. Sanderson. Chairman of the American State Central Committee, to the Chairman of t he Republican State Com mittee, expressive of an anxiety to unite the two parties, and requesting that the Republicans should poAtp , n . their uomi, tion ,f electors in order to secure that ob fc et. Several members of the Aire rican Committee made the same request, found leg it on the assurance that the friends of Fillmore, throughout the State generally, considered his election hopeless, and earn grisly desired to secure the defeat of Mr. Buchanan, Soon niter Mr. Sanderson's fraternal communication to the Chairman of the Re publican Committee, he visited the city of 11 ahhington, and munediately on his re turn, a letter was received from him, as follows .

In the evening of the same day, (Sept 12.,) the American State Committee met in Philadelphia, but it is understood that Mr. Sandervon withheld from his colleagues the foregoing correspondence.

The subject wits accordingly postponed to the 7th of October. and the follawiog letter was rul dr.:ssed to Mr. Sanderson : PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 29, 1856.

At the meeting of the Committee which I have the honor to represent, held on the 18th instant, of which you had notice, some comma• ideation ou this subject frout the American Committee was fully expected; but none was received, and I have out bad the pleaaure of bearing from you since.

The Republican Committee tel at Har risburg, on the 7th instant, end adjourned to inert in Philadelphia, on the It'th for the purpose of fortning the Electoral Ticket in conjunction w'th the American Commit tee. the minutes of the proceedings of the last named body, at its meeting on the 16th, have been published, and it appears that It r, Sanderson suppressed the fore going communication addressed to hint on the 29th of Sept ember, which in his an ewer, he promised to lay before his Com mittee. The Republican Committee, at ita meet ing, held on the sante day, sent a deput.t• lion to the American Committee with the following in,t ructions : Resolved, That the Committee appointed to cotter with the FiHiner° and Honelson State Committee, be instructed to invite them to meet and unite with the Republican State Executive Committee for the purpose or [brining. Elec. tuntl Ticket, opposed to the election of Jetties Suchanan, upon the basis proposed by the Union State Central Committee, as published in the call for a Union State Convention, to meet at Harrisburg on the 2let inst. And if this invitation be not accepted, then, Redo/red, That the said Committee be in structed to. invite the Fillmore and Woolson State Committee to meet with us for the par. pose of funning an hl'ectural Ticket on some other bait's, which will he likely to receive the support of the people of this State opposed to the Cincinnati Platform and the election of James Buchanan. The Americun Committee reftispd tone cept either invitation, and rejected the ((A lotting resolution, ()tiered by 31r. F.a,icis Jordan, of Bedford : Resolved, That it the friends of Fremont and Dayton accept and support the American Elec. tuna Ticket, at the ensuing election, we are willing that the said ticket may east the electo ral vote of the State for Fremont and Dayton, in case it will defeat Mr. Buchanan, and will not elect Fillmore and Dutielson if given to them They also struck from their Electoral Ticket two gentlemen, who had been pla ced on it by the American State Conven tion, who had declared that they preferred Mr. Fremont to Mr. Buchanan for the ['residency, substituted others who prefer the latter to the former candidate, and final ly adjimurned. A minority of the Committee (seven in number,) dissatisfied with the conduct of their colleagues, then united with the Re publican and North American Committees, and formed a Union Electoral Ticket, which is fully explained in the official sn ai., nesimmit Already wiadv.. All that could be done by the Chairinan of the American State Committee and his! coadjutors in the Democratic ranks, to give the electoral vote of Pennsylvania to Mr. Buchanan, by a secret "side-door" combination with the friends of that gen tleman, to divide the t .ength of the Oppo sition. has been accomplished. The prop osition of the 27th August, was evidently t's igned to embroil the American and Republican parties in every county where they had united on Assembly and Congres sional candidates, and thus aid the Dem ocracy to an overwliehning victory. For what other object did the Chairman of the American State Committee place himself in commuaication with Mr. Forney ? Whether that gentleman accepted an invi tation to ''slip in at the aide-door" of Mr. Sanderson, or whether Mr. Sanderson "slipped in at the side door" of Mr. For ney, is not certainly known. Why Mr. Sanderson should invite a secret "side door" interview, and shrink back from a fair open and honorub'e conference, can only be surmised. Although Chairman of the American State Cotutnittee, it is well understood that he was never connected with the American organization, and tin der other circumstances. a "side-door" ef fort on his part to annihilate it, would per haps subject him to no reproach. Bu t why he should participate in the concoc tint' co' schen es to frUttrate and defent the well known wishes and purposes of that party. after it had so far 'tenured him with its conlid once as to place him at the head of its State Committe is a qtm-tioti which must be settled ry those who have been betrayed . fire Democratic State ticket has been el , vied by a small majority. It teceived the votes of thousands of Fillinore's friends in Philad. Iphia and elsewhere, who cannot support James Buchanan for the Presi dency. It "dipped in at the bark door," while the true friends of the Union ticket were slumbering at their poste. hey have not been vigilant. They have not put forth their strength. 'l•lre official re• turns of the recr nt ele^tion shovel in neatly counties their votes Wave ndit been polled. In Cumberland, the entire vote is nearly six hundred less than in 1852. In Berks, it is truly five hundred leas than in 1855. In Franklin, it is nearly six hun dred less than in 18.12. In Dauphin there in, an increase of seventy votes only, sine, 1852. Similar deficiencies will be found in the official returns from other counties, The Democratic party, with a perfect or. ganization in every election district in the State, polled every vote which could be se cured by the uunost vigilance, and at any cost. Never before were such efforts made by that party to carry an election—and ne• vor was an opposition more sanguine of its own success and more neglectful of the proper means to secure it. Friends of liberty I We invoke you to arouse from that supiness which must prove fatal to every cause, howevt-r just and ho ly it may he, With you a gracious Prov induce has deposited the power of arrest ing the eve ision of human slavery to the free Territories of the country 'Phi, is the single object of the Republican party, It proposes no interference with the con stitutional claims of any State. It does not concern itself with slavery in the South—it see ks no quarrel with any sec tion of the Union. list it demands fidel• ity to that solenin compact which admit ted Nlirsouri, pledged freedom to Kansas, peace to a c:istracted country. It declares that those who de-troyed it, shall derive no advantage from their own wrongful act, and this is a principle daily administered in every court of justice throughout the civilized world. It promulgates no poll:. ical doctrines of recent origin, but founds itself upon those embraced and maintain ed by ll'ash.ngton, Jefferson, Franklin, and other Fathers of the Republic. The Electoral Ticket nominated by the joint action of the state Committee, rep ' vsents fairly the principle for which we contend. Every vote cast for that which contains the Penne of Alin C. Frenio is a “ot. , for there principles and the aggregate will exhibit their strength with the peo ple of Pennsylvania. In proportion to the number of votes east for that ticket, in tt.e event of the election of the twen ty six electors, the vote of Pennsylvania will be cast in the Electoral College— And so in proportion to the number of votes cast for Millard Fillmore and the rante twenty•six Electors, r ill be the num ber of votes which he will receive in the Electoral College. Messrs. Fremod and Fillmore are therefore rival cat didates, and the contest for popular supremacy may be conducted by their respective frieude with all the earnestness in their power, each contending fur their princi. hont compromise irr contoelineet, and asking no favors of the other. This plan of union, exacting no morel sacrifice, must commend itself to the friends of both candidates, ■nd its acceptance by them must result in the de feat of life. Buchan. Republicans ! Let us prepare for the final struggle. Our cause is just—our candidate is worthy ! In the prime and vigor of a life which has been devoted to honorable, laborious and useful services to the country, the acknowledged founder of the Fre" State of California, the first who opened a path for the emigrant across the Rocky Mountains to the shores of the Pa cific, facing death, and overcoming dan gers in the enterprise which no man before him had dared to encounter, he has been presented to the people nut as a calcula ting and successful politician, but as one from their own ranks, whose career is the evidence of merit, capacity and patriot ism. if you would check the extension of Slavery, assert the worth and dignity of free labor; if you would preserve the constitutional rights of every section of our beloved country; if you would "ensure domestic tranquility, establish justice, pro mote the ph wral welfare and secure the blessings of liberty to yourselves and your posteihy," the titan to do it is NOSY I Fur these very objects. the lives and fortunes of men, in the earls history of our coun try. were pledge.] and lost.

REBID TO THE AMERICAIS OF PENN% There can be no denial that we the un dersigned, have been, and are, both Amer icans and Fillmore men. We have watched the progress of the canvass with a profound attention, worthy of the cause aed times. From ctrouinstances but recently brought to light, we are sati fi LI that plane S have been maturing to hand over the entire American party to the Democratic plat form In the address of Chas. liibtrons, Esq., Chairman of the Republic:in Execu tive Committee, he states, that on the lsrh of September a resolution was passed by the American State Committee in favor of any honorable arrangement with the friends of Fremont and, Dayton, to defeat Mr. Buchanan. toe have investigated this fact, and find that such a resolution was missed This fact has been studious ly concealed from the American party of this city and State. It is now time to speak plainly. 'l'he chairman of our Fillmore State Committee is not now, nor was he ever connected with our Americsn party, nor do we think that we should allow even the entire Executive Committee to stultify our cause and to con,ign us to inure defeat by their cry of straight line American tick et. Mr. Sanders in does nut believe (for he says so) that the Fil'inore Electoral ticket can be elected. It is a mere ques tion of how many voter; can we pull as a forlorn hope. The're can no evil result to us by uniting upon a Union Electoral Ticket upon National grounds, The pro post: n is to forum one ticket headed with Ftlinicre's name, and another ticket head ed with Fremont's name, and the vote in the College to be east for each candidate according to the number of votes roll, d by each ticket. Con anything be fairer than this ? e are ever Fillmore men, and can so express ourselves by our votes ; and our common political enemy, who stands on a platform entirely inimirnt to Anericin prin •iples, may be defeated. We are, by this means, seeming votes in the Electoral College for Fillmore, where we would not have one without it, It resolves itself into a question of utter defeat, by advocating our candidate in One mode, or of obtaining fur our candidate, by another nude, a fair proportion of the electoral vote of Penn sylvania. For ourselves, we know the respousibil ities we assume, and we believe that our American friends throughout the Union will thank us after the canvass is over.— Yesterday we should not hrve made inch a proposition. 'I o•day we do, because we are sure that treachery is being attempted, and we are nit willing that our American Party, which we love as we love our polit ical existenie, shall Le ha atleta aver as a body for the use of that misnamed Demo cratic Party, against which we have been battling since the organization of the Ame rican Party.

How to be Miserable, Sit at the window and look over the way to your neighbor's excellent mansion whioh he has recently built and paid for, and sigh out, "0 that I was a rich man rt Get angry with your neighbor, and think you have not a friend in the world. Shed a tear or, two, take a walk in the burial ground, continually saying to yourself, "When shall Ibe buried here ?" Sloe it note for your friend, and never forget your kindness; and every hour in the day whisper to youtself "I wonder if he will pay that note." Think everybody means to cheat you. Closely examine every bill you take, and doubt its being genuine, till you have put the owner toe groat deal of trouble. Believe every shilling passed to yol is but a six pence crossed. and express yore doubts about getting rid of it, if you should take it. Put confidence in nobody, and believe every man you trade with to be a rogue. Never accommodate, if you can possibly help it. Never visit the sick or afflicted, and never give a farthing to the poor. Buy as cheap as you can, and screw down to the lowest mill. Grind the faces and, the hearts of the unfortunate. Brood over your misfortune, your lack of tal. sots, and believe at no distant day you will come to want. Let the workhouse be ever in your mind, with all the horrors of d stress and poverty. Then you will be miserable to your heart's content. (if we may so apt alt,) sick at heart, and at variance with all the world. Noth‘n wll cheer or encourage you; nothing will throw a gleam of sunshine or a ray of witvin..b into your heart. All will be as idark and cheerless as the grove. The Tables Turned. Some time since, on one of the North River Boots a lady rho had attracted much attention for the masculine turn of her tnan. ners and conversation, was seated at the table opposite a gentleman, who in taking some butter, in the absence of the butter. knife used his own, which the lady obser• ving. called aloud to the waiter : ..Wai.ta ! bring another plate of butter, that man, (pointing to the gentleman) had his knife in it !" The unfortunate sight almost sunk un- der the curious gaze of all the company. but said nothing, determined to watch his o, portunity to return, for the cruel morti fication, change in her own coin.

FREMONT'S RELIGION CARD FROM ARCHBISHOP BLUES, Among the many blistering folsehooda which tl.ii campaign has given birth to, none stand out more malignantly false t;:an the charge of Ca.holicism, which the ,y• ing journals and politicians have endeavor ed to fasten upon Fremont. The Daily News and other Know Noth ing Journals have spread the lie that Bleb. op Hughes had himself declared that Fre mont was a Catholic. 'the following let ter from Bishop Hughes, we trust will tramp that slander into the dust. From the N. F. Courier and Enquirer. We have received the following Card from Archbishop Hughes, with a request to publish The Archbishop of New York thinks it due, both to the private feelings of Cul. Fremont and hie family, as well so reasonable sell.respect to state, that he has had malting to do, directly or indirectly, with a private letter which is now being circulated through the newspapers, put• permit , to have been written by J.
