Duty of American Republicans.
The brilliant victory which was accomplished
last fall by the united Opposition, over the co•
hods of Black Democracy, has, in a measure,
caused a calm in our ranks, as a natural con
sequence; but we should remember there is a
danger that this apathy may continue, and
probably lead to n defeat in subsequent cam
paigns. The coming campaign which is about
to open, will no doubt be conducted with spirit
and attended with intense excitement. The
late elections have taught us that the Opposi
tion party is the majority party in Pennsylva*
nia—and nation—and that we can carry the
State at any time, if we use such politic meas
ures as will secure the harmony of those op
posed to "progressive" locofocoism. If this is
doubted or denied, we point to the vote of last
fall, when the locofoco party—notwithstanding
the fact that Government influence and Gov
ernment money were freely used to insure a
victory for the Buchananites—were beaten by
tens of thousands. This, however, should but
stimulate to still greater action. We have art
ful and dexterous enemies to contend against
—partisans who depend upon intrigue, decep
tion and fraud for success; and who have more
than once effected their purposes by these very
means. It is as impossible for the "Ethiopia n
to change his skin or the leopard his spots" as
for Buchanan locofocoism to conduct a cam
paign honestly and fairly . An endeavor has al
ready been made by the wily political jackals
the coming County Convention. In view of
this fact, it is all-important that the greatest
caution and wakeful vigilance should be exer
cised in the selection of delegates. We have
already accomplished much good to the coon.
try by a united effort, but in order to retain our
advantages over our insolent and unprincipled
opponents, we must not only continue active
and vigilent, but in the selection of our candi
dates, sea that none but tried and true men are
brought forward, and when such are nomina
ted, do all we can to secure their election.
The nomination of one bad man, does more
towards destroying a party than twenty de
feats with good candidates. It is the bane of
every political system; and never, whilst we
wake pretensions towards common honesty,
will we be a party to any deception of this
character which may be practised upon the
The Late War News.
By the arrival of the steamship Weser we
are put in possession of two days later intelli
gence from Europe. The news from the seat
of war is of moment, mainly as confirmatory
of what was previously known or generally
inferred. The Austrians had fallen back to
Verona, and Garibaldi was endeavoring to get
the command of Lake Garda, in order to iso•
late that fortress from the Tyrol. We are en
abled to lay before our readers the French offi
cial report of the Battle of Solferino. The
news from Germany is highly important.—
Field-Marshal Prince Windischgratx was ex
pected at. Berlin from Vienna on a special mis
sion. The Federal Diet had unanimously
acceded to a proposition from Prussia to place
a corps of observation on the Upper Rhine,
and an extraordinary Diet had been convoked
for the 14th inst. to raise money for war pur
poses. This does not look much like " localis
ing " the war. Kossuth had been received
with great enthusiasm in Italy.
Appointment by the Governor.
The morning papers announce the appoint.
ment by the Governor, of James Gamble, to
the Judicial District made vacant by the death
of Judge Burnside.
We are very much surprised at this appoint
ment, and have no hesitation iu saying that of
allthe names before the Governor tor the place
this is the worst selection that could have been
made. He is unfitted for the place iu every
respect—by nature, by attainments or by ex
perience. And we venture to say that the peo
ple in the district will rebulse the appointment
by its overwhelming rejection in October.
Rufus Choate.
A. telegraphic dispatch from Halifax announ
ces the demise, at that place, of one of those
brilliant orators whose fame has shed so much
lustre on the current history of Massachu
sett. Rufus Choate died there on Tuesday.
He had long occupied no large a space in the
ay. of the public, that hie death will excite
more attention than any of recent date.
A Word to Naturalized Citizens and
Honest Democrats.
Who don not well remember the terrible
outcry which the Black Democracy raised
against our party during the last Presidential
contest, in reference tom naturalized citizens,
and who has not heard it repeated since the
passage of the Massachusetts Amendment?
Who would have believed that this tune could
be so easily changed, when the leaders of that
party saw something could be made of it? For
our part, we never believed in the sympathy
of Loccifocos --and Gen. Cass' recent letter
proves beyond all cavil that theirprofessions of
friendship towards the foreigner, are hollow and
heartless. The loan or men who could deceive
their own fellow citizens, and barter away the
dearest interests of Pennsylvania, care no
more about the interests of adopted citizens,
than they do of the man in the moon. It was
a fundamental principle of Locofocoism in the
last Presidential campaign to avow deep love
for the foreigner. This was artfully enlarged
on in the speeches of Locofoco brawlers and
endorsed and enforced in newspaper paragraphs.
All this was to catch the votes of naturalized
foreigners. This numerous class of voters
were induCed to believe that the Republicans
and Americans were alike opposed to them, and
that the Locofocos alone were their friends.--
How hypocritical have they proved all these
professions I They succeeded in getting the
votes of foreigners—and now they are eagee
to combine and make common cause with oth
er and despoiled governments, to oppress them.
Let the foreigners treasure ills Ipintheir mem
ories, and reward the locrAcos as they deserve.
Never again believe o locofoco when ho asks
for your vote,
An Extraordinary Flour Contract.
A correspondent of the Missouri Dsnsoma ,
writing from Camp Floyd, Utah Territory,
charges that a groat swindle is being perpetra
ted under a contract of flour for the United
States Army. The contractors are John Hol
liday and Col. Martin, who received $2B GO,
per 1.00 pounds.
The annual consumption is about 2,000,000
which would make the amount of the contract
$ 51'2,000. Taking into consideration the fact
that 51r. William Martin and E. P. Staunton
offered to furnish the supply for $lO per 100
pounds, and that Mr, J. C. Little agreed to
take the same contract for $7 50 per 100 pounds
it seems strange that Messrs. Holliday 8c Marlin
have been awarded this contract at $5B 60
per 100 pounds. The flour furnished is menu•
factored in the territory, is of poor quality, and
is bought by contractors fur $5 to $8 per
100 pounds. At the latter rate they are nt an
outlay of $160,000 in fulfilling the contract
leaving them a snug little balance of four
hundred and twelve thousand dollars. The
writer alleges that there are probably four
partners in this contract. Mr. John Holliday,
Major Martin, Wm. Russell, (firm of Russell,
Major 5 Waddle,) and Secretary Floyd. They
will retain one hundred thousand dollars each,
and be at no trouble or risk.
Who Shall be Our Next Governor/
Although it may be considered premature
at the present time to note any preference for a
mw an election for uovernor - before ISO—
yet it is a privilege which many of our cotem.
poraries have been exercising, and which we
see no reason to deny ourselves. In casting
our eye along the rank of talented Statesmen
already named for that responsible office, it
rests upon Hon. John Covode, of Westmore
land county, as the one most surely able to
secure the success of our principles by a tri
umphant election. In thus proclaiming our
preference for Mr. Covode, we are actuated by
no other motive than as ardent and sincere
desire for success. He is a man of unbending
integrity and untarnished honor; possessing in
au eminent degree all the essential q ualifications
necessary for a proper discharge of the duties
of that or any other office in the gift of the
American people. As a Pennsylvanian, he
is and always has been a firm and consistent
friend of protection to American industry; op
posing with a manly vigor the policy which
protects foreign in preference to home labor;
he is opposed—as his noble sentiments in our
Congressional Halle fully attest—to the exten
sion of human bondage into territory now free,
and in favor of the restriction and abolishment
of this muse, by every constitutional means.
He is, itt short, the man for the times. Pos
sessing as he does the elements of a popular
lender—the eloquence and pleasing manners,
which mark him as a pouched gentleman—
and fitted by his talents and experience to fill
the Executive chair with honor to his party and
himself—hie name would be a tower of strength
and the presageof certain victory. With Gen.
Simon Cameron as our candidate for the Pres
idency and Hon. John Covode for Governor, the
success of the opponents of the present system
of corruption practiced in Washington, would
be placed beyond a peradventure. So we
think, so we say, and so we hope will be the
The Black Democracy.
Or. the outside of this issue will be found an
editorial relative to the address of the State
Committee of the Black Democracy of Penn
sylvania, signed by Bob Tyler—son of John
of blessed memory l—as chairman. It bears
throughout as the Herald remarks, the evi
deuces of a constitutional political pleader of
She Old Virginia School. On the great sub.
ject of. Squatter sovereignty the committee
contend substantially that should the necessi•
ty arise it will become the duty of Congress to
interpose against the 0 unfriendly legislation "
of the local authorities of a Territory on the
subject of slavery so that the rights of slave
holders may be duly protected. Thus, while
the regular democracy of Pennsylvania occu
py the platform of Govenor Wise, the Hickman•
Forney bolters stick to the platform of Mr.
Douglas. And thus we suppose they will g o
into their October election. And thus, right
and left the democracy, upon their negro ab
stractions, are torn to pieces. Who could have
dreamed of such terrible disasters from that
" popular sovereignty" experiment of Messrs
Douglas and Pierce: the Kaneas•Nebraska bill?
Impeachment of Gov. Packer.
It is a fact well known that the administra•
tion of this State has been at open war with
the Buchanan Administration since the inau•
guration of Gov. Packer. Packer fell from
grace, as understood and expounded by King
James, on the Lecompton issue, giving mortal
offence unto the said James.
In 1858, it will be remembered, a bill was
passed by the Legislature and signed by Gov.
Packet, authorizing the sale of the remainder
of the public works to the Sunbury & Erie
Railroad, providing for a re-sale of the same by
the said road, to a third party. The basis of
the charges brought by Buchanan & Co., is
alleged malpractice by the Governor in con
summating the sale, etc.
The editor of the Harrisburg Patriot and
Union, a devoted enemy of Packer's is print
ing a series of articles charging fraud and cor
ruption upon the Legislature of 1858, in pas
sing that bill. Also charging Packer with the
same sin. These charges assume a grave air
when it is announced that they form a part of
a deliberate, well digested plan, which looks to
the impeachment of the first magistrate of this
Commonwealth "for high crimes and misde
meanors in office." There is no doubt that
many of the leaditig Buchanan Democrats—
those who 11 , 411 the wires and manage the affairs
of that portion of the Democracy which ad
tera to the National Administration, are now
engaged most seriously in discussing the mans
by which to bring about an impeachment.
This ides, in all probability, had its origin in
the President himself. Judge Black is to be
the chief agent in prosecuting it to completion.
The attempt to impeach will be made beyond
question, if there is any probability of succeed
ing in getting the House to prefer charges to
the Senate.
The Oberlin Prisoners Freed.
" All our readers must be familiar with the ex.
citing trial of the Oberlin rescuers, and of the
menaced serious conflict between the State,
.d United States Courts. We now learn that
the governmental attempt to enforce on the
Western Reserve the Fugitive Slave law has
resulted in a most disastrous defeat. The goy
erment has entered a"noli coneendre," in the
Obetliu cases, and the "rescuers"who have
been so long imprisoned, have at last been
freed. Just as they were leaving the Cleveland
jails for their homes, they presented, with ap•
propriated speeches, a beautiful Silver Napkin
Ring, Fork and Spoon, engraved with the ini
tials of her husband's name, to each of the
wives of the lawyers who defended them. A
fervent prayer by Prof. Peck then closed the
scene, and, accompanied by musks and brass
cannon, they made a triumphant march through
the city.

The eternal years of God are her's."

DANIEL AND TEREBA.-It will gratify the
lovers of pure morals, and the admirers of
vindicated laws, to learn that that most excel.
lent man, the Hon. Daniel E. Sickles, and
that very pure.minded lady, Mrs. Teresa 13 agi.
oli Sickles, have settled the little domestic dif
ficulty that for a time interrupted the course of
their connubial felicity. It was a little actor.
tunate that this difficulty should have led to the
killing of a man, and the distraction of a wo
man's reputation. But the great wrong com
plained of, when their separation took place,
was that Mr. Sickle's honor was destroyed and
that hencetitrth there was no peace or
happiness for him in this world. The intelli
gence that he is reconciled to his Teresashows
that the honor is all right again, and, as for
peace and happiness, they will be the most de
voted and happy couple known in history.

rial on tie subject, as follows:
Several of the morning papers have shout.
taneously announced a fact, which has been
known for some time in this city, namely, that
the hero and heroineof " the domestic tragedy"
at Washington had concluded to forget the lit
tle affairs of the house in Fifteenth street, the
extorted confession, the murder of Key, the va
rious incidents of the notorious trial, and live
together again as though nothing had occur
red. But there is one small discrepancy in the
accounts of the loather, and that relates to the
manner in which the happy event is received
by Mr. Sickles' friends. The T•ibune said:
"We are assured that in taking this remur•
able step, Mr. Sickles has alienated himself,
from most if not all of those per onal an/ po•

during his recent imprisonment and trial.
But the Tribune is not very good authority in
such canes, and the public generally give

and carry San Cassiano. Then in order to re
inforce the right of McMahou's command,
which was a little exposed in consequence of
the distance which separated them .d the
troops of Gets Neil, his Majesty sent all the
cavalry of the Guard and two divisions dem ,
airy of the first and third corps up. Canrobert
hod been charged to watch the movements of
the Austrians expected on the side of Mantua.
I);:eing the whole lay they fought, advanc
iiiplowly bets always in good order, the corns
joining up towards each other. The first corps
after taking possession of So:forint), seized one
position after smother in Pozzidoego. Night
alone stopped their career. The Guard seized
San Cas-iano and Cavriana without losingtime.
The last village was carried with great spirit
under the eyes of the Emperor, whr., himself,
directed the fire of the artillery. The fourth
corps, under Gen. Neil, advanced step by step,
always gaining ground.
There was a time when to cover their retreat
the Austrians made a desperate effort to place
themselves between the fourth and second
Corps, a fierce struggle occat red. The infantry
and artillery took part in the conflict and the
cavalry, by several charges, decided the success
of the * day. This was the last act of the battle.
The Austrians began to retreat along the whole
line. This retreat was favored by a dreadful
storm which lasted for more than an hour.—
The thunder hail and wind produced such an
sheet that nothi g could be distinguished on
the field of battle. When the weather had
improved, the enemy had disappeared and the
direction they took was perceived when their
columns had attained some distance.
The Emperor of Austria, who had lodged at
Cavriana, quitted the field at four o'clock and
retired towards Gerto. Napoleon was in some
