The United American, Republican, and
People's Committee of Superintendence for
the City of Philadelphia, earnestly deCirous to
extend and perpetuate that union of the ele
ments of opposition to the present National
Administration, which in this City has lately
resulted in such brilliant success, do hereby
respectfully suggest, and recommend to the
State Committees representing those several
elements of opposition, that they cull upon the
Citizens of Pennsylvania, who are . opposed to
the present National Administration; espec
ially to its despotic and fraudulent Lecompton
policy, and its wilful neglect of the just claims
of domestic industry; and who aro in favor of
the Sovereignty of the People over their own
local concerns; of American institutions as
against the policy and intrigues of foreign
Governments, and of adequate protection to
our home labor, to assemble n their respect
ive Senatorial and Representative Districts to
choose delegates to a State Convention, to
meet at Harrisburg, in the Hall of the House
of Representatives, at 2 o'clock, P. M., of Wed.

In view of the above recommendation, and
its genets! acceptance, I hereby withdraw the
call for a State Convention, issued by me, far
the Bth of July next, and earnestly request the
American Republicans of the State to accept
it, end participate in the election of Delegates
to said Convention.

The above recommendation having been sub
mitted to me for my approval. lifter consult.:
tion with the majority of the members of the
American State Committee, and a large ruin
bne. of the prominent Atnericans of the State,
I cheerfully adopt it as our call for a State
Convention, and urge the members of the
American party throughout the State to parti
eipate in the election of Delegates.
Chairman of American State Com,
Clearfield, May 29, ISM.
Inasmuch as the above recommendation and
calls point out the plain road to practical, de

National Administration and its tyrannical and
sectional policy, I therefore request the Repub

of Delegates to the above Convention.

else, the prosperity of their country.
For some cause, industry has been com•

A government is only truly Republican
when the Rulers obey the wishes of the
Peryle. The moment their Rulers endea
vor to force the people to obey them, it is a
tyranny. It is only until within a few
years that tho National Administration
boldly made known its purposes to coerce'
the people to submit to its demands. The
mask has been thrown off. The power of
the present Administration has been freely
and unblushingly used to crush the spirit of
Freedom in Kansas. Force and Fratld
have struck hands. The People of Kansas
asked to be permuted to vote upon their
Constitution. It was denied, and Presi
dent Buchanan took the field in a special
message, - urging, as the excuse for the
wrong, that an early settlement of the tins
bless in Kansas was of vast importance, arid
to secure any State Government would
certainly produce that end. 'l'he minions
of Buchanan used every applian ce, with
out success, until the "English Swindle."
and its accompanying bribes, compelled
the People of Kansas to accept the fraud,
or stay out of the Cif on for five years.
Thus, in one act, Congress anti Buchanan'
himself. have written .jals , liooll" on every
lord of that special message, which pre
tended that an “early settlement" was all
that was desired, The bribes offered in
that Bull, if offered in Pennsylvania, to se

the •'Warm Springs,. ns they long have

visited the Om., I can speak from person

There are several springs here gushing
in close vicinity, front the saute hill; and
yet some of diem warm. and medicinal.
others cold as ice water, and perfectly soft
and pure.
For the last half century these springs
have been known, and more or less resor

to he quite a place of resort for invalids;
tied continued so for many years, until*
Bedford antrother places inure easy of ac

Acquittal of Gen, Lane.
The Lea;r.iworth Daily Ledger of the
2d instant announces the acquittal of Gen.
Lane of the charge of killing Jenkins.—
The decision of the Court wits to this ef
fect ;
'ln making out a case against the defen
dant, it was necessary, first, no prove that
a murder had been committed; and second
ly, by General Lane. The prosecution
had (ailed to establish the first. The Court
were unanimously of the opinion that no
murder had been committed; and as the
Territory having failed to establish the
primary fact, the only charge contained in
the affidavit, the defendant, General Lane,
was accordingly discharged."
correspondent of the Ledger, writing
from Lawrence, where the trial was helo,
"'I he decision, though generally expec
ted, is not universally approved. Col. S.
S. W. Eldridge denounces it bitterly. Lie
told Justice Lad J. just after the decision,
that if he (Eldridge) wits ever brought
belere him, and convicted of any crime, he
would shoe him as cure as fate "
['here is nothing in this decision to
prevent the Grand Jury indicting Lane, if
so disposed.. By express statutory provi
sins, the evidence, together with the de•
damn, must be submitted to them by the
Clerk of the District Court. The exami
nation honing been so full, and, withal,so
fair, it is very doubtful whether the Grand
Jury will ever cause another proceeding,
on the same charge, to be instituted."
The Ledger further remarks, editorial.
ly : .
The Court were unanimous in their opi•
nion, and we lee) fully justified in saying
that the evidence adduced for and against
the prisoner warranted them in arriving at
the Collalusion they did.
We have read the entire testimony care
fully and impartially, and arrived at the
see, conclu.ion several days since.
e defy any lawyer in the country to
come to any other conclusion ; alter a Care"
ful and impir.ial rending of the testimony.
We are no political friend of General
Lane's. We despise :very political senti•
mint that he over uttered, at the same
time, as a public journalist, we feel tt in•
cuinhent upon us as a pudic duty to assent
to the judgment of the xamining Court,
and to accord to theta all praise. Colonel
Jenkins was a particular friend of ours,
nod we are free to confess that our sympa
tines aro to mat airocurni, out we oeterint
tied to hear the final result ere we spoke
one word.
The kstimony proves conclusively that
Col. Jenkins was the aggressor, accompa
nied by three friends. nil armed ; and th-it
the party were closing in on Gen. Lane,
and ac ual y shot at him twice ere he show
signs of self protection, and the Ilion who
would not protect himself, if in his power
to do no, would prove to the world that be
was unfit to live, and too contemptible to
die. Gen. Lane acted just as every man
should act under like circumstances, and
public opinion will sustain him.
We dismiss this subject from our col•
umns with the remark that, let the man he
n friend or foe of ours, in a case of life or
-death, we will endeavor to do him justice,
°though the heavens fall."

Fillibustering Movements.
A decree issued by . the senate of the
State of Salvador, Central America, nn•
notincos in the preamble that the fillibus
ters are preparing two expeditions—one
to Mobile and the other in California—a
gainst Central America, which threatens
in a positive manner its independence and
nationality. The preamble goes on to say
very sensibly, that the weakness and •dis
tracted condition of the Central American
States invites such outrages, and that until
t hey unite under on confederation nod
form u strong defensive arry they can ex
pect no peace or aafety. This has long
been palpable to all the rest of the world
and at length it seems to have., crept into
the heads of politicians more immediately
pverested. ..General efforts are in pro.
cressnow to Salvador. Nicaragua, Costa
Rica and Hondunis. to form a national un
; but Guatemala, the most populous,
fluusishing, and powerful of all the States,
has hitherto been opposed to it, in conse
quence of the despotic sway exercised
there by Carrera, whose influence would
sink to case of a union.
CifirA FRENCH SHIP, called the Regi
na Corti, seized by an English Cruiser ofi
the African coast, had on board two hun
dred and sixty five negroes, shipped as Af
rican apprentices, who, it is stated were
shipped from Liberia, with the consent of
the President of that Republic, and were
nearly sufficontly well educated to read
and write ; a circumstance indicating
suspicion that they all primarily emigrated
from this country. It is suggested that
the American Colinization Society might
more profitably undertake the supplying
of the French colonies with laborers direct
,from this country, as it is an expensive,
roundabout way to send the free negroes
first to Africa then allow them to be re ex
ported to the French colonies.
Kentcicy Alessengrr mentions a freak of
nature which is about parallel in the onl
ine! kingdom. It is a colt with only one
eye. It was foaled on the farm of Mr.
Roberts, in Madison county. The eye is
considerably lager than the usual size,
and in the midd:e of the forehead.
ear correspondent of St. Louis Democrat
says that "affairs in Kansas are I ecoining
quiet," and that men of both parties are
beginning to see that the supremacy of
the law is better than every man being
his own avenger. This is the best news
we have had from Kansas Territory for a
long time.
