f BOIS'S BTarli TICKET.
TOR AUDITOR GENERAL;
THOMAS E. COCHRAN,
roa SURVEY. GENERAL:
GEN. WILLIAM EL KEVL
OF BERYLS COUNTY
OUR STATE TICKET.
We raise to cur mast-head, the ticket
placed in nomination by the People's Con
vention, on the Bth inst., and shall use
whatever ability we possess to secure its
triumphant election—which we look upon
as a settled and certain event.
The ticket is a good one—unexception
able and strong. Mr. Cochran is a gentle-
man of ability and undoubted integrity, and
the name of Gen. Kelm, is a tower of
strength in itself. He it is who overcame
Glancy Jones, in old ' , mother Berks,' , and
revolutionized that Democratic stronghold.
On the whole, we hear nothing but per
fect satisfaction expressed on every hand,
at the action of the Convention, and a de
termined and united purpose of doing all
that can be done to swell the majority for
The state Convention.
We find in the Elarrisburg Telegraph,
a full and complete account of the pro
oeedings of the Opposition State Conven
tion, which met at that place on the Bth
inst. In noticing the candidates, etc., it
says that "every county was fully repre
sented, and. judging from the delegates,
by the ablest men in the party, The pro
ceedings were harmonious, and although
an excited struggle took place for the of
fice of Auditor General, everything passed
off pleasantly, and as soon as the success
ful candidate was announced, the unani
mous satisfaction seemed to be from the
eighth ballot. He is a gentleman well
known throughout the Slate. and in his
own neighborhood has acquired an estima.
tion and standing which any man might
envy, He is known to be an honest man,
(without any peculiar boast of it on his
part,) which is the best recommendation so
particularly necessary for the responsible
poet of kuditor General. Mr. C. has al
ways been a hard working opponent of
the Buchanan Democracy ,and he deserves
to be rewards d by those whom he has so
faithfully served on various occasions, lie'
represented his own county on the floor
of the Senate for three years, and he can
point with pride to the record of that body.
His opponent of the ' , Soap Convention,"
Richardson L. Wright, will find honest
Tom Cochran a hard nag to beat, and he
may prepare himself to be left in the back
ground to the tune of 30,000. Lecompton
and old Buck will not be able to save him.
Gen. Wm. H. Keiut, (soruetimes called
Glancy Jones Keim,) is the the nominee
for Surveyor General. The General is
known all over the State as the successor
of that man who had so often the honor to
dine with the President, Mr. Jones, lie
served in the last Congress, and distin
guiihed himself by his able Tariff speech.
He has always been known as the friend
of the poor, and we are certain that he
gill be remembered by the workingmen of
'Old Berks.' on the second Tuesday in
October next. He will make an honest
and industrioue officer, and hie election is
'The resolutions are just such as we indi
cated in Tuesday's paper, of a conciliatory
nature. Whilst they offend none of the
great Opposition party they go far enough,
Our platform is broad enough for all.—
Opposition to the further extension of '
Slavery over Territory now free—a prop
er protective tariff to encourage home la
bor—opposition to the renewal of the
cursed slave trade—opposition to the im
portation of foreign criminals—are all
measures which have beets advocated by
the party at large. They are the true
principles of the Jeffersonian democracy,
and will lead us to triumph in :1859 and
also in 1860, with a Pennsylvania midi
rim for President of the United States."
lion. Nest! Taggart presided as Presi•
dent, assisted by 34 Vice Presidents, and
some 16 SeMetaries.
Mr. Todd, on behalf of the Committee
on Reaolutiona, reported the following,
Resolved, lot. That Executive intervention
to prostrate the will of the people, Constitution•
ally expressed, either in the States or Territo.
ries, is a dangerous element of Federal power,
and that its exercise by the present Chief
Magistrate of the Republic, as well in elections
h i upon the Representstivea of the people,
meets our decided disapprobation.
2. That we protest against the sectional and
'OPeliver, policy of the National Adminiatra•
lion as at war with the rights of the people and
subversive of the principles of our govern.
3. That we denounce and will unitedly op.
pose all attempts to enact a Congressional
Slave Code for the Territories , believing the I
same to be utterly at, war with the ! true purposes i
of our government, and repugnant to the mot ,
al sense of the nation ; and that we re-affirm
our continued hostilities to the extension of
Slavery over the Territories of the Union .
4. That we regard all suggestions and prop
ositions of every kind, by whomsoever made,
for a revival of the African slave trade, as
shocking to the moral sentiments of the en
lightened portion of mankind; that any art.„- j e
on the part of the government or people conni
ving at or legalizing that torrid and inhuman
traffic, would justl7 subject the government
and citizens of the United States to the re
proach and execration of all civilized and ehrist
lan people, and that the inaction of the Na
tional Administration in bringing the slave tra
ders to justice, and its course in sending such
as have been arrested to trial in places where
acquittal was certain, subject it fairly to the
charge of conniving at the practical re-open
ing of that traffic.
5. Thatlve hold the encouragement and pro.
tection of home production and American in
dustry to be ono of the first duties of our gov
ernment; and the failure to obtain such en
couragement and protection from the last Cs ti
gress, notwithstanding the professions of the
President, convincing us that the laboring
masses of the tree Suttee will look in vain for
a tariff for the protection of the labor while the
administration of the government is in the
hands of the party now in power • and that we
believe the adralorem system wholly inadequate
to the protection we demand, and in lieu of it
we are in favor of specific duties upon iron,
coal, salt and all such other products wholly
the growth and manufacture of the United
6. That the reckless and profligate extrava.
ganee of the National Administration, nous•
ing a necessity for continued loans without
any means provided for their payment, give
evidence of a want of that ability and integrity
which should characterize the Government of
a Free people, and unless checked will lead to
a dishonor of the National credit.
7. That the passage of n just Homestead
bill, giving one hundred and sixtyacres of land
to every citizen who will nettle upon and lot.
prove the same, would be a measure fair in
principle, sound in policy, and productive of
great good to the people of the nation. And
that we regard the defeat of Mr. Grow's bill in
the Senate of the United States,
by the party
in power, as a direct blow at the laboring clas•
ses of the country, and us unworthy of the lib.
erality of a great government. And that kin
dred to this was the defeat, by the same party,
of the preemption bill which gave preference
to actual settlers over land seeculators.
8. That the purity and safety of the Ballot
Box must be preserved, and that all frauds
upon the Naturalization laws, which have been
so much resorted to, to promote the success of
the party we oppose, ought to be counteracted
by wholesome and proper legislation.
9. That we approve of the enaetm eat of prop.
er laws to protect us from the introduction of
foreign criminals in our midst, by returning
them at once to the places from whence they
have been shipped to our shores.
10. We cordially invite all men of all par.
lies to join with us, in earnest endeavors to
restore the Government to its original purity,
11. That this Convention do most heartily
approve of and endorse the course pursued by
on- able and distimmished Senator, the Hon
Simon Cameron, and that of our Representa
. the popular branch of Congress who
have zealously supported the protective policy,
the homestead bill, the just rights of actual
settlers, :Aid have steadfastly opposed the tyran•
ical policy of the National Administration in
their attempts to force upon the people et Kan
on a fraudulent slavery constitution in opposi
tion to the known and oft expressed sentiments
of the Freemen of the Territory.
Messrs Kirkpatrick and lidie advocated the
passage of the resolutions, and they were linen.
The chair was authorized to appoint a
State Central Committee, to consist of thirty.
Mr. E. 11. Rauch offered the following,
which was adopted:
Renaced, That the thanks of this Conven
tion be and are hereby tendered to the Presi
dent and officers of the same for the able,
courteous and impartial manner in which they
have discharged their duty.
Mr. J. S. Pomroy offered the following which

The express coaches have arrived with ad
