The Crazy Convention at Philadelphia.
' del pit in.
In any other age than this, stupified
as it it by all sorts of fanaticisms, the
crowd ot Know Nothings assembled
at Philadelphia would be taken as a
set of mad men, just let loose Irom an
insane Asylum. They avow senti
ments that are abhorent to human rea
son, and disgraceful to the country that
gave them birth.
They claim to be the nobility of the
land the better blood ol the country I
the annointed of the Republic, and
born to rule the rest of mankind. A
set of political outcasts Irom all the
other parties of the country unde
serving any longer of the confidence
of their fellow men they associate to
gether and proclaim that they are the
chosen spirits of the age to lead roan
kind to a new political standard and a
sublime excellence.
They cast aside the labors of a
Washington and Jefferson, and make,
Mormon-like a new political Bible,
and send Preachers to propogate the
new faith.
Such are the impudent, self-conceit
ed, brainless and characterless bigots
that are committing sacrilege in the
old Hall of Independence in Philadel
phia. Political bastards Temper
ance drunkards Religious infidels and
blood thirsty moralists, they set at ut
ter defiance every principle of common
sense, common honesty and the broth
erhood ol mankind.

The Convention held here was call

tJsgp, yd, during the afternoon, the
City Hall was entirely filled. It was
not as large as either the convention
held by the Democracy of Ohio on
the 8th of January last, nor as that ol
the 13th of July. But it was larger
than other State conventions held here
tofore, by parties organizing for a State

vention. The members were not only
.manifestly in earnest, but many of the
members and speakers appeared very
sanguine that this would not only be
the starting point of a distinct party
for national purposes, but that they
would be able to make a very formid
able, if not successful effort to obtain
.ascendency in Ohio next fall.
Let not the Democracy ot this State
flatter themselves that they are to ob
tain an easy victory. Our enemies
have modified their positions, it is true
We may be compelled to encounter, in
the new organization of yesterday, the
real foe with whom we shall have to
.dispute the field. But it carries with
it the secret councils and futive machi
nations of Know Nothingism. This

Plain Talk.
The Piqua Register, fusion, took
the Daiton Journal, old line whig, to
(ask for not supporting Chase. The
Dayton Journal retorts in very plain
.language, it says:
"We have never 'apologized for
rsiavery,' nor nave we ever tailed Ho
condemn the Aggressive conduct of the
auvocaies oi jue institution.' ve no
irnore Apologize for slavery' thau we
'apologize' for abolitionism. We are
just as much disposed to 'condemn' fa
naticism at the South as fanaticism of
the North. But we do not believe for
all this that all the patriotism and phi-
laninropy wnich the Union contains,
is held North ot 'Mason & Dixon's
line;' that all the North is 'Simon Pur.
and all at the South is wicked and cor
rupt. We have no more confidence in
the political honesty of Joshua R. fiid
dingB and Salmon j?. Chase, than ne
Have in the decency oi Stringfellow
not a whit."
Again:
"What folly then is it for the sake of
conciliating such men as Joshua R.
Giddings and his adherents to keep the
great, the only question, 'Stale Re
form,' in the back ground, so as to al
JowGiddings $ C'hase to reproduce

treason and disunion, but we will have

Hon. J. Scott Harrison Declines.
By the following letter it will be per
ceived that John Scott Htrrison decline

him by the Whig tod Know Nothings

BROADWAY
August 6th, 1855.
Hon. James Vail,
Dear sir: At a meeting of the citi
zens of Cincinnati, held on the evening
ot me gnu inst., at winch you had the
honor to preside, I perceive my name
was favorably presented to the consid
eration of the people of Ohio a a can
didateforthe chief maeistrecv of th
State. I have also observed movements
of a similar character in other counties,
and desire through this communication
to respond to each ot these meetings.
I trust, Sir, I duly appreciate the hon
or proposed, and will ever cherish with
grateful recollections the kind partiali
ty which has so manifestly governed
the action of my friends. But, Sir, I
must be allowed to decline the honor
which is tendered me. I cannot con
sisienuy with trusts already assumed,
suiter my name to be used in anr con
nection that will at all infringe uponj
uuur.s i one me people of the Sec
ond Congressional District of Ohio. I
shall therefore remain at the post which
has been assigned me in the national
legislature always defending, with un
abated leal, the rights of mv constitu
ents, whenever assai ltd by Executive or
ucgib.aine aggression. At the tame
lime not forgetting the duty I owe our
common country as a National repre
sentative, In doing what I may to arrest
every attempt to .hatter the ties that
bind our gloxious confederacy.
Auow mz again, sir, to express to
you, ana mrougn you to mv fellow cit
izens composing the meeting of the 3d
instant, my sincere thanks for the hon
or they have done me, and to indulge
the hope that whoever may be called to
preside over the .councils of our State,
he may be a man free from sectional
prejudices national, union-loving man
a man who in times of excitement
like these can forget that there is a
ftortri or a fcoutb, and remember only
now glorious and patriotically the
blood of each mingled in harmonious
union in cementing the rampart of A
merican freedom.
With true respect.
Your friend and obedient servant,
August 6th, 1855. J. S. HARRISON.
The Elections.
In lennessee it u finally conceded,
says the Cincinnati hnquirtr, despite
the efforts of the telegraph, which elec
ted Gentry several times, that Johnson,
Democrat, is chosen Governor. Here
is the latest dispatch to the Louisville
Journal, dated Nashville, August 8.
it 6ays t
"The dog's dead at last, but died hard.
All the counties in but two, Johnson
is elected by from one thousand to fif
teen hundred majority."
The dog alluded to is "Sam." who is
completely throttled. The Congression
al delegation will be divided five De
mocratic and five Know-Nothings. The
Legislature is in doubt
In Norlh Carolina it is finally settled
that the Democrats have six or eight
members of Congress, and a large ma
jority of the popular vote.
In Kentucky, the Louisville Courier
reports Jewett, Democrat, elected to
Congress from the Fifth DUtrici, by a
majority of 696. The Courier think
that Elliott, Democrat, is elected in the
Sixth District, and there is a chance for
Talbot, Democrat, in the Fourth Dis
Wicl. Humphrey Marshall, Know
Nothing, elected, by frCud and violence
in the Seventh District, and A. R. Mar
shall in the Eighth District. Mr. liar
ris, we regret to say, is defeated in the
Tenth District, by a small majority.
In relation to llio State ticket the Cour
ier says i
"In the forty counties reported above
Morehead has a majority 0f 5,678. As
yet but very imperfect returns have beeu
received from tha mountains, and noth
ing from the First District. Mr Clarke
who is at present in the city, depends
upon these sections for hii strengtb.and,
if they meet his expectations, the sue-
cess of the Democratic State ticket may
not be cousidered altogether an imoos
sibility." Chil. Advertiser.
