We raise to the head of our paper the name of

Gov. Bigler occupies a strong hold upon the
affections of the Democracy of this county, who
fetand.pcap.ared upon all occasions to defend the
honesty and integrity of his official conduct from
Any unjust aaimadversiorts, having full and nn
changing'fuitlt in Lis attachment to the princi-
pics of our organization, and full, confidence
that he has labored and will continue to do so
Tor the advancement r.nd maintenance of the
pwiltieal truths which link us together. lie has,
"therefore, received the voice of the Cambria de
mocracy in his favor, which could not have been
given to a" men more eminently deservirg, "to a
democrat more true, to a Governor "more fitted
to protect the interests of the Commonwealth and
increase the greatness and prosperity of her in
habitants. v ' "
We"also place at the mast-head ' the unani
mous and only choice of the Convention - and the
democracy of the county, as the candidate for
State Senator- from this district Cvnrs. L.
Pibshixc, Esq., of Johnstown. ' Nominated for
' so distinguished a position without any solicita
tion cn'bis part, containing within himself the
'material and every proper qualification for the
ofoce; "endowed" wiQTa strong and well-informed
mind, familiar with the political and civil his
' tory of the Republic and of the State, profound
in legal .learning and research in him have we
& candidate worthy of high distinction,' worthy
f t an energetic aiid successful support a man
whose known cpplication, correct habits' and
unquestioned capacity, gives every assurance
i that hewould prove true to his trust, true to
, his constituency and be an ornament and pride
,to his district. Combining within himself all
the elements of popularity, confident of his strict
integrity and great worth, Cambria county pie
peats his name under the conclusive belief that,
,if nominated, he can and vr511 receive an unpre
cedented majority from the people ef the county.
. For the Legislature, Thomas Collixs, Esq.,
of Summitville, was re-nominated, having dis
charged his duties with so much satisfaction to
hia constituency uuri"nr the last session, its in
.merit and receive this additional testimonial of
esteem from Lis admiring fellow democrats. He
.is of the manor born, and his wishes and feel
.iegs are so inseparable from the interests of his
native county, as to warrant a faithful adhe
rence to ber welfare and concern in the discharge
of every official duty. Competent and deserv
ing of the station, of ucniistakeabie honesty and
tfirm adherence to the principles of the party, he
.wUl make an useful and vigilant member of As
sembly. The experience cf one session in the
Legislature, from which he was enabled to gain
entire kuowledge of ell things pertaining to the
."tiffice, prompts us to state that he will make "a
valuable and influential member, careful to use
every honorable effort tending to further the
happiness of his constituency and the progress
eS the State. - He will be elected by a larger
majority than he received last year.

nominated. ..'.. -, . ;
For County Commissioner, we have Jons H,
Douglass, Esq., of Clearfield township, who is
an excellent selection for this office. He is a
sbrewdj safo, good business man, one who will
bestow every attention to the county affairs, and
demonstrate bis peculiar fitness to take charge
of her increasing resources. " f
For Auditor, Joseph Hogue, Esq., of Carrol,
township, is our candidate. He is an estimable
young man, peculiarly qualified to audit the
county accounts, and will be careful that noth
ing over which he exercises a supervision bu
will receive a thorough and complete examina
tion. For County Surveyor, Thomas M'Connell,
Esq., of Summerhill township, a skilful and ex
perienced surveyor, than whom a better man
could not have been nominated.
These then are the nominees of our County
Convention, and we trust that that cordial and
enthusiastic support will be given, to which their
merits so justly entitle them. Numbers there
were, who preferred others, equally as deserv
ing of support as those nominated, but their pre
ferences are, for the present, merged in the will
of the majority, that will being expressed in an
honorable manner. In the late campaign the
hardy democracy of Cambria vied with each oth
er in their devotion to party ; may we not hope
that the spirit of '52 is again abroad, urging us
on to as glorious a victory in October '53, as we
gained over our opponents last fall.
