This National, Democratic paper, on Wcdnes
laft, passed into the hands of Wm. II. Hope Esq.
late editor of the Baltimore Argus, and will here
after be issued as a penny paper. Mr. Hope has
had long experience as conductor of the princi
pal democratic journal in Baltimore, and he en
joys a no less solid reputation as an able, vigor
ous and ready writer, than u worthy, esteemed,
high minded and useful citizen. We desire him
lasting success and additional reputation in his
new position, and arc confident he will merit
both. Mess. Forney and McKeau have, with
loyal ami heroic hearts, fulfilled the highest ex
pectations of their friends during the years they
have battled for the principles of the democratic
party through the columns of the Pennsylraman,
and in their several vocations we will always be
pleased to hear of their uninterrupted prosper
"WliifT State Convention.
The Whigs of Pennsylvania met in Convention
at Ilarrisburg on Thursday last, 25th March,
and temporarily organized by appointing David
Leech, of Armstrong, President, and John W.
KilHuEcr of Lebanon, and It. L. Johnston of
Cambria, Secretaries. Hon. Wm. Jessup was the
permanent President of the Convention, assisted
by numerous Vice Presidents and Secretaries.
(Jen. Scott was declared to be the choice of the
State for the Presidency, receiving in Convention
113 votes to 5 for the nominee of the Whig Na
tional Convention, the latter being Fillmore men
from Philadelphia city. Ex-Governor Johnston,
John C. Kunkle of Karrisburg, and Morton Mc
Michael of Philadelphia, are the delegates from
the State at large to the National Convention.
From this district Samuel L. llussell Esq, of Bed
ford, was chosen delegate, and John Linton Esq.
of Johnstown, Elector. Alex. E. Brown of Eas
tern, James Pollock, and S. A. Purviance, head
the Electoral ticket. On the third ballot, Jacob
Hoffman Esq., of Berks county, was nominated
for Canal Commissioner, the vote standing, Hoff
man Gl. Wm. M. Lloyd 30. The resolutions
adopted, praise Gen. Scott and Gov. Johnston,
commend the administration of President Fill
more, and suggest 17th, June, as the time, and
Philadelphia as the place, for holding the Na
tional Convention. The Ilarrisburg Telegraph
says " for any other man than Scott there is not
the feintest hope." The Phila. Sun, the organ of
the Native party says he will lose the vote of
Pennsylvania. More truth than poetry in that.
Hon. Mr. Cabell, Whig M. C. from Florida, says
" if Scott is nominated by the whig party for the
Presidency I do not believe that in my State he
would receive fifty votes ; and I am quite sure he
would not get the electoral vote of one Southern
State. Would I support him? I answer unhes
itatingly, No. I will not support him, but will
do all in my power to defeat the election of any
man, who, like him, withholds his opinions." A
Nashville whig paper, says he will be defeated
5,000 votes in Tennessee. The N. Y. Courier
prophesies the defeat of Fillmore if nominated.
"One woe doth trend upon another's heels."
The Democratic party prophcf-y the defeat of the
Nominee of the whig Convention, for theaihas
gone forth that we must have a democratic
President in 1 S53. The nominee for Canal Com
misssioncr is a lawyer from Heading and has
never had any experience in the management of
public works. Compared with Mr. Sebright he
will have to stand back like " a bound boy at a
husking" and we consider certain Lis defeat by
a large majority.

We are convinced that whenever a journal, es-,
tablished for the sole purpose of advocating the
doctrines of any denomination, intervenes in the
political affairs of parties, dissatisfaction and
complaint must inevitably ensue. It should be
the duty as well as the pride of such journal, and
we think it is certainly the interest of the same
to preserve a " strict neutrality on party
questions and stand aloof of all " entangling al
liances" with either of the political parties of the
country, confining its course to the advancement
of ecclesiastical affairs. Departure from such
line of conduct is fraught with mischief, deserves
censure, and admits of no extenuation. We no
tice with deep regret in the Crusader of last week
the following article, written by a Mr. Marshall
Anderson of Chilioothe, Ohio, reflecting upon the
democratic party, because some of its members
and journalists favor Kossuth, and which the
editor of the above paper is "glad to have an
opportunity to present to our (its) readers," and
to which is "cheerfully yielded our (its) Editori
al Columns." The article after discountenancing
the arrogant pretentions of Kossuth, thus speaks
of two journals of the democracy that advocate
his cause, and of the duties of Catholics :
"From almost every pulpit and press, they
(the Catholics,) are denounced, as if, in the lan
guage of the democratic Cincinnati Enquirer,
they were " the fast friends of the political des
potisms of the old-world, nurtured at our own
hearth-stones ; and he further makes the query,
" whether they are not traitors at home V " Et
tu quoqe Brute." And I, sir, as an early and
persevering democrat a democrat from my boy
hood up feel these charges most sensitively,
when I find myself and all other Catholic dem
ocrats, branded, by our own leading journals, as
" slaves and minions of a foreign power." If
any, be his politics or religion, what it may, can
read the Democratic Review for January, 1852,
without a glow of indignation, I envy not his
head or his heart. Is it the duty of Democracy
to give utterance to, and believe in, the foulest,
falsest, most malignant slanders against the chief
Bishop and head of the Catholic church? If so,
then have I, and many of the same faith, who
have hitherto been the staunchest friends of that
party, sadly mistaken our position. It is known,
that the great majority of the Independent vo
ters of the Catholic Church, have gone, heart
and hand, with the leaders of Democracy, in the
advocacy and maintainance of those principles
which they believed, would secure the greatest
amount of happiness and prosperity toourcoun
try. But, we are not disposed to be trampled
upon. v e aesire to oe ireaieu as men, as iree

men. Let them not fancy that they are driving
us, with curves and snaffles in our mouths. The
Catholics are not slaves, nor are the leaders of
democracy their masters ! Let the ruling spir
its of Baltimore affairs look well to their action.
Once for all I say, leicare .'"
The nominee of the Baltimore Convention will
be a democrat to whom the vote of every mem
ber of the democratic party can be given without
fear of subsequent events ; the principles of Jef
ferson and Jackson will be his platform, and
when elected, care will be taken that the "bless
ings of government, like the dews of heaven,
shall be dispensed alike upon all," no matter
what may be their religious convictions or sta
tion in life. Mr. Anderson should recollect that
the inuendoes of the Cincinnati Enquirer cannot
be considered as the voice of the Democratic par
ty of the nation, and that the January number
of the Democratic Review has been read out of
the party for its base insinuations against veter
an democrats, as also for its " Young American"
disquisitions. George Sanders, the editor of the
Review, is known to be so steeped in corrupt
machinations as to have lost the good opinion of
Mr. Anderson has overlooked two important
facts. The first is, that it i3 a moral impossi
bility for a party, so numerous as the democrat
ic, not to have in its household, advocates of
Kossuth's doctrines. The second, that he has
forgotten, or does not desire to be aware of the
fact, that the most ardent pleaders for the cause
of the Hungarian are whigs. We are confident
that the ablest advocate for Kossuth in the U.
S. Senate is Wm. II. Seward, whig Senator
from New York. The newspapers which most
zealously labor for him, are the X. Y. Tribune,
X. Y. Times, Pittsburg Gazette, and Pittsburg
Dixpatch ; edited respectively by Horace Greely,
Henry J. ltaymond, D. T. White and J. II. Fos
ter, all whigs. Hia most active friends before
during and after his visit to Ilarrisburg, wesme
John C. Kunkle and Gen. Samuel J. Karns, both
whigs. More of the same sort could be spoken
of but we merely mention these instances to
demonstrate that the opposition party are as
deep if not deeper in the intervention question
than the democracy. On the other hand Hon.
Wm. lv. Smith, democrat, from Alabama, took
the lead in Congress for an adherence to the
principles of Washington as promulgated in his
"Farewell Address," while Hon. Jeremiah Clem
ens, democrat, U. S. Senator from Alabama, on
several occasions made eloquent speeches against
the Kossuth doctrine and in favor of maintain
ing our neutrality. Gen. Cass only desired the
passage of a resolution by the U. S. Scnate
"sympathising with every people who are striv
ing to establish free governments, recognizing
the principle of each government to manage its
own internal affairs, without interference ; and
that we could not see this principle violated
without deep concern." To our knowledge no
democratic Congressman has gone beyond this,
while Seward's amendment declares, "that Hun
gary established her independence, that the Em
peror of Russia subverted that independence,
that the Ujiitcd States solemnly protests against
such conduct and will not hereafter be indiffer
ent to similar acts." In all truth does not the
whig exceed the democrat?
We make this statement of facts for the pur
pose of preventing erroneous impressions in the
minds ef the people, as well as to satisfy the
searcher for truth ; and to our esteemed contem
porary wc would say, wc do it "all in sorrow,
As the journal of a party we
would prove recreant to the trust confided in us,
were we not to nip in the bud all attempts to
destroy the foundations upon which that party
has reared for itself a structure adapted for the
advantage of the many.
Individually we profess the same religious faith
as the above Mr. Anderson, but we must have
grounds more relative than his ere we can desert
the party that bears aloft the banner of a Jeffer
son, a Jackson, and a Polk. We expect to cling
to it as long as a rag of it remains hanging to
the flag staff, and we hope that such is the de
termination of every true democrat in the State
in the Union. We care not if some democrat
ic journalists assail that religion, they can pur
sue their course vituperative abuse comes also
from the opposition both parties contain many
adherents, members of thai faith we are a dem
ocrat from principle for the reason that we be
lieve the principles of that party to be consonant
with the peace, wealth, and prosperous advance
ment of the country the religious convictions
of no man should be a reason why he is a m ember
of this or that party it is a question too sacred
to admit of profanation by being interwoven in
party politics and we sincerely hope fora quietus
of all religious-political discussion we want to
see each and every man servingGod in whatever
manner he sees fit, and serving his country in
that manner which his patriotism, untramelled
with religion, dictates.
We desire no new fangled principles interpola
ted in the democratic creed, we ask for no new
vagary to be inscribed upon our flag. In refer.
ence to our foreign policy we quote as our max
im, "why, by interweaving our destiny with that
of any part of Europe, entangle our peace and
prosperity in the toils of European ambition, ri
valship, interest, humor, or caprice ;" words sa

father of our country George Wasuixgtox.

spent considerable time in discussing various
minor matters, after which the Committee on

and 1799, take strong ground against the pro

to a division of the proceeds of the public lands
among the States. They also re-affirm the prin

They are touchingly beautiful:
Sweet, laughing child ! the cottage door
Stands free and open now,
But oh ! its sunshine gilds no more
The gladness of thy brow !
Thy merry step hath passed away;
Thy laughing sport is hushed for aye.
Thy mother by the fireside sits,
And listens for thy call ;
And slowly slowly, as she knits,
Her quiet tears downfall ;
Her little hindering thing is gone ;
And undisturbed she may work on !
Death of Hon. Jeremiah Morrow.
Ex-Governor Morrow died on the 22d inst., at
his farm on the Little Miami, Warren county.
From the birth of Ohio to the present year just
half a century Governor Morrow has been part
of the public life of the State. He was her first
Representative in Congress, a Senator, Governor,
Canal Commissioner, and, in the latter part of
his career, an active participator in the first
great railroad enterprise of that State. Gover
nor Morrow was a member of the Convention to
form the first State Constitution in 1802. He
was a Representative in Congress from 1803 to
1813 ; he was Senator from 1713 to 1719; Gov
ernor from 1822 to 182G ; Canal Commissioner
subsequently ; in Congress from 1841 to 1813 ;
and President of the Little Miami Railroad Com
pany till 1847. In Congress, he was Chairman
of the Committee on Public Lands.
The Arnold Family.
A Norwich paper says: "The last remaining
relative of Benedict Arnold (who honored Nor
wich by being born here)was carried to the poor
house three or four days ago by one of our se
lectmen. She was cousin to the traitor, and re
members him well, and spoke with seeming re
sentment and indignation of his having been
" driven out of the country." She is 92 years
old, and when taken from the miserable hovel
where she and a sister of hers, who died three
or four years ago, had lived, shunned, solitary
and in abject poverty, for many years the poor
old creature was sitting without a fire to warm
herself by, although the day was one of the cold
est of the season. We have never been able to
learn that there was any reason, except in the
leprosy which clung to the traitor, whom it was
their misfortune to be allied to, why this woman
and her sister, neither of whom was ever mar
ried, should have gone through life excluded
from social life and intercourse by the inexora
ble ban of society. Yet such is the fact, and it
furnishes a striking commentary upon the depth
and strength of that feeling of loathing execra
tion with which the name of Benedict Arnold is
linked, now and forever, in the popular mind."
