MORTON AND WILLARD.
On Tuesday last, the candidates of
both parties for Governor of Indiana,
met at this place, and jointly addressed
a large assemblage of the people. In the
mnming, and until the hour of speaking
had arrived, the people from the country
came in, in great numbers. We presume
there were at least two thousand people .
in town during the day. The sham De
mocracy had been making extraordinary
exertions for the previous two weeks, or
more, to gather a Urge crowd; and there
was only one thing standing in the way
to prevent this result a scarcity of tim

No disturbance of consrquer.ee ensued
