against their better judgment, have at length j
determined to take a bold and open stand
- L'ainst the combination, and in doing so
acknowledge that the party needs a thor- ;

fragments from the corruption with which i
it is blended.

Messrs. Clark, Moore and Swope were ap
pointed a committee to inform Dr. M'Culloch

of it.
The following resolutions were then submitted
and unanimously adopted :
Resolved, That while we deeply deplore the
great national bereavement that has befallen us
in the death of Gen. ZACUARI TAYLOR, late
President of the United States, we can look with
confidence upon his successor, MII.LAIU> FILL
MORE, and feel assured that his sagacious states
manship, purity of purpose, and unswerving ad
herence to Whig principles will ensure us an
administration that we can cordially approve.
Resolved, That the administration of WM. F.
JOHNSTON meets our unqualified approbation;
that his untiring efforts to bring our tax-ridden
old Commonwealth back to her ancient pros
perity, by taking effective measures to reduce our
State debt, and secure adequate protection to
domestic industry, must commend him to every
true hearted Pennsylvanian.
Resolved, That Hon. SAMLET. CALVIN has faith
fully represented the Iron District, and that we
recognise in him a true Whig, and a reliable
Representative.
Resolved, That Dr. JOHN M'CL'LLOC U, of Hunt

unanimous support of the Whigs d!" thi district,
and that we will leave no honorable means un
tried to secure his election by a triumphant ma
jority.
Rrsolved, That these proceedings be signed bj
the officers and published in the Whig papers of
the District.
ROBERT CAMPBELL, President.
A. K M'CLCRE, Secretary.
2CJ" 3 The following letter, addressed to tic
editor of the Gazette, speaks the sentiments of
a good Whig, and will find a ready response
throughout the entire district. Gen. IRWIN hav
ing submitted his name to the action of the con
ferees, so far from feeling dissatisfied at the re
sult, returns thanks for the partiality manifested
for him in Mifflin county, and is now ready to
do battle in favor of Dr. M'Culloch against the
great gun of free trade in this district, Andy
Parker, or any other locofoco who may be nomi
nated :
LKWISTOWW, Sept. sth, 1850.
Mr. Frysinger—l embrace the first opportu
nity to declare, in the most public manner, my
entire satisfaction with the action of the Whig
Conference Convention of this Congressional
District. Dr. JOHN MCCLLLOCH, the whig nom
inee, is a gentleman of excellent sense, sound
political opinions, and great personal popularity,
and 1 have no doubt that his triumphant election
will vindicate the wisdom of the choice of the
convention. Unanimity and activity will ensure
our success. Our candidate is an avowed and
uncompromising friend of a Protective Tariff,
the one great measure to which Pennsylvania
looks for safety and prosperity, and the real, the
only issue between the Whig and the so called
Democratic Party is, Free Trade or Protection to
American Industry. Let this issue be fairly and
powerfully presented to the people—let them
remember that they are choosing, not only a re
presentative of themselves in the National Le
gislature, but the representative there of one
great principle, ami the result will not be
doubtful.
Permit rnc, Mr. Editor, to tender to the whig®
of Mifflin county rny heartfelt thanks for the
distinguished mark of their confidence and es
teem which the unbroken vote of their conferees
gave to me in convention. It was exceedingly
gratifying to me to receive this indication of the
attachment of ray native county, and it has in
creased (if that he possible) rny devotion to the
success of the principles of the whig party.
Defeated for the nomination, yet in no wise dis
honored, I retire from the contest cheerfully
and without complaint. My successful friend
tins my kindest feelings, and shall have, with a
hearty good will, whatever aid my humble abili
ties can give to secure his election.
Verv respectfully yours,
W. H. IRWIN.
( KM RE Cot NTv. — The Whigs of Cen
tre county, on the 28th ult., nominated
J Win. If. Harrison for Assembly ; Philip
B. Waddle for Commissioner; David
Whitmer for Auditor, and W. G. Waring
i . *=>
; for Surveyor.
The Democrat has made some very
logical discoveries in reference to the whig
congressional nomination, by which it
would make it appear that the whig lcad
<rs ol Mifflin control the five counties
j composing this district. Our neighbor's
| vision, we presume, was bounded bv some
very preen grass when he penned that ar
tli. bibbonev, lb* Democrat, and the
Whigs.
The Democrat of yesterday has the
following paragraph, which we copy for
the purpose of making some comments :
" The sincerity of our neighbor's sympathies
for Mr. Gibboney might have been made some
what more apparent, had himself or hi# party
manifested the same interest in his election
when he was a candidate, that they now do for
him, because he did not get the nomination this
year. Mr. Gibboney fully appreciates your de
signs, and will evince it by giving his support to
the Democratic ticket. When he ask 3 for sym
pathy he w ill look in another quarter for it."
Now we beg leave to say that the Ga
zette has offered no sympathies to Mr.
Gibboney, and never intended to do so ;
hut on die contrary we have all along said,
and still say, that in the Legislature Mr.
G. ww ultra enough for the most ultra lo
cofoco, and supported a number of the
most violent partizan measures, no matter
how unjust to the whigs—yet with all these
recommendations to party favor, he was
insultingly thrown aside, without explana
tion, and as many good locofocos believe
without cause. It is to this censure on him
and his conduct—for such it truly is—and
the trickery by which it was effected, that
we have drawn public attention, and we
shall continue to do so until the wirc
workers, who, under false pretences pro
cured a majority of delegates favorable to
John Ross, make known through their or
gan why Mr. Gibboney was so summarily
rejected from a nomination to which, by
the usages of the party, lit? was clearly
entitled. Thus far, as we have heretofore
shown, the Democrat lias had no response
to the charges alleged against the unfair
ness of Ross' nomination, but has had an
abundance of advice to the cheated to
STICK TO THE PARTY, because it alleges its
candidates " ate not nun who change their
politics as they would their stockings, but
firm, HONEST, reliable democrats, ever
ready to do their whole duty as men and
citizens," —see yesterday's Democrat—
which being interpreted into plain English,
means, we suppose, that Mr. Gibboney
did not till these requisitions and that John
Ross did ! Or, if it don't mean that, why
was the Jormer not renominated ? Why
was not the same courtesy extended to
him that there was to Hugh McKee and
every other locofoco member within our
recollection except Major Wilson, who was
made to walk the plank under the one
term plea ! If the Democrat can explain
this matter it will much oblige us, and
probably Mr. Gibboney, as well as a num
ber of tlie " democracy" who cannot un
dcrs.and all the ground and lofty tumbling,
(rhalitig anything that will be performed
in Robinson A: Eldred's or Welch's Cir
cus,) practiced by their leaders within the
last seven or etght years.
As for Mr. Gibboney appreciating our
designs, asking for sympathy in another
quarter when he needs any, and giving" his
support to the democratic ticket," he can
do as he pleases wiliiout incurring our
censure or flattery. For aught we care,
he may lick the hand that smote him—re
turn thanks for having dragged him into
public life, and then sent him back under
an implied censure—slip on a collar la
belled Ross, Dnll Co., and help to place
in ofliee one who don f change his jwlitics
as he would his stockings, hut a firm,
HONEST, RELIABLE DEMOCRAT like
John Ross ! He can do all this, and we
have no fault to find. Hut having been
brought forward for re-nomination, and
swindled out of a second term by the po
litical tricksters who have not even the
face to deny the act, it is within the com
pass of "our business" to hold it up to
the people of this county, and instead of
going on a wild-goose chase in search of
the " philosophers' stone," as recommend
ed by the Democrat, we shall keep throw
ing stones at more tangible matters at least
once a week from now until the October
election. In the meantime let those whom
the shoes tit wear them.

The newspapers, says llie Chanibersburg
Wliij{, are advertising lor the following
rare curiosities, which they won't get, viz :
—a measure which the loco party has ad
vocated unwaveringly for ten consecutive
years—a pledge which they have honestly
redeemed —a Locofoco Legislature that
never chartered a Hank—-a candidate for
oflice who never deceived his constituents
—a Locofoco executive who eared more
for the prosperity of the country than for
tho ascendency of his party—a Locofoco
convention at which there was no villainy

sample of that party's consistent ).

Congress against I)r. McCulloeh, and
wouldn't have much objection to yield the

free trade candidate for Congress in this
district nets a good deal of expense and

EPHBAIM BANKS, the Democratic candidate, I
has every qualification, and will make a valua- |
ble officer. He is a just, highininded, honora- !
ble man, and entitled to the respect and confi- j
denceof his fellow citizens. He is a tariff man. i
Not wedded to the tariff of 184G, but in favor of
any that will be honest and fair in its operations, j
A tariff that will protect labor and encourage in- j

We have no objection to the laudations .
extraordinary in the first part of the Stan
dard's article, hut the statement that Mr.
Hanks is in favor of a tariff that will pro
tect labor and encourage industry is con
siderably over a mile from the truth, un
less it is intended to mean that he is in fa
vor of a tariff like that of *4O, which pro
tects British labor and British industry in
preference to our own. So far from being
a tariff man, we think Mr. Banks was an
advocate of low duties when the locofocos
of this county professed to be better tariff
men than the whigs. He endorses the
Baltimore Platform in full, slavery, low
duties and all, as did the convention which
nominated him, and we dare Say is ready
to go for DIKF.CT TAXATION AND ABOLITION
OF AI.L DFTIKS whenever a National Con
vention will lay that down as " democ
racy."
fT The late election in Virginia for
members of the Convention to amend the
Constitution, has resulted in the return of
a large majority of " Reformers," and
there will probably be a thorough revision
of the present Constitution. At least we
hope so. We have for years heard a good
deal about Virginia " Republicanism," but
there is very little of it to be found in
their present State Constitution.
NEW JI DOE. —Hon. GEORGE S.WYSER
having resigned the post of Associate
Judge of the several Courts of Adams
county. Gov. Johnston has appointed as
his successor, SAMFEL R. RISSELL, Esq., of
Gettysburg, a brother of Wm. Russell,
Esq., of this place. The Star says the
appointment is universally conceded to
be an excellent one, Judge RUSSELL being
possessed of every requisite for a compe
tent, judicious and faithful discharge of
the duties of the station.
rr The Whigs of the 23d district, met
at Warren on the 23d ult., and nominated
JOHN 11. WALKER, Esq., of Erie, as their
candidate for Congress. Mr. Walker Is
now the Senator from Erie in the State
Senate, of which hotly he is one of the
most able and distinguished members.
C 7* JOHN SNODORASS, Esq., of West
moreland county, of I'ortage Railroad
memory, has been nominated as the Loeo
foco candidate for Congress in the district
composed of Bedford, Westmoreland and
Cambria. The nomination has created
quite a hub-bub in the district.
ZV Joseph Higgins, late a member of
the Legislature from Blair county, has an
nounced himself as a volunteer candidate
for the Senate, and William T. Wilson,
formerly a of Lewistown, oilers
to run as a candidate for Register and Re
corder in opposition to the regular nominee.
The Standard man always said that Hig
gins was of the mulish order, and we be
gin to suspect that his opinion was right.
Wilson, we fear, has listened to evil coun
sel, and he may yet live to regret having
taken it, as least of all is there any excuse
for one to turn disorganizer who but lately
edited a \*hig paper in which the support
of regular nominations was strongly advo
cated.
RP* The Hon. THOMAS M. T. MCKEN
NAN has sent to the President the follow
ing letter resigning the oflice of Secretary
of the Interior, upon which he so lately
entered.
WASHINGTON, PA., Arc. 2G, 1850.
Mv DEAR Slß: —i respectfully tender to you
my resignation of the Department of the Interi
or, to which you did inc the honor of calling
me.
This determination has rw>t been reached with
out the most serious and anxious deliberation.
A conscientiousness of my peculiar nervous
temperament, which too readily responds to
causes of excitement and depression, would
have prompted me, in tho first place, to decline
the oiler ; but the kind manner of the appoint
ment, accompanied by the good wishes of the
Cabinet, and backed by the pressing urgency of
friends, made so strong an impression upon me
as to leave me no alternative but to accept. A
brief experience of the arduous labors and on
orous responsibilities of the position, in connec
tion with considerations of a private and do
mestic nature, which press upon me with great
force, has brought inc to the conclusion that a
duo observance of duty to my family and my
self require my withdrawal.
In thus dissolving my brief official association
with you, permit me to say, that I cherish a
confident reliance upon the patriotism,capability,
and worth of every member of the Administra
tion, and a hopeful assurance of its success. To
this end no effort of mine, in iny rctiroment,
shall at any time be wanting.
May I not also assure you of my grateful ap
preciation of the kindness extended to me by
you and your official associates.
With respectful and sincere regard, I am
vours, faithfully.

Thirty-two sheep were recently killed
by lightning, in l'ine township, Alleghany
county. They were under a chesnut tree
at the time, which was struck, and onlv
|WQ of the whole flock escaped,
ili-eat Floods'.
The heavy rains of Sunday last caused
the streams in the eastern and southern
counties of this State to rise to an unusual
height, and more damage \fas sustained
than by the great Hood in July. In Lan
caster, York, Berks, Schuylkill, Mont
gomery, Philadelphia, &c., mills, houses,
bridges, fences, timber and lumber were
earried off in every direction, and in some
instances attended with the loss of life.
At Fairmount, the Schuylkill was three
feet higher than in July, and prevented
the machinery from working ; it also sub
merged a portion of the gas works, leav
ing the city for several hours in almost to
tal darkness. We subjoin some telegraphic
despatches :
ALLEN-TOWN, PA., Sept. 3. —The freshet has
been most disastrous along the Lehigh. The
water rose 18 feet in a few hours, being higher
than the great freshet in July last. The loss
cannot be estimated at present. All along the
shores small buildings and property of various
kinds have been swept away, farms inundated,
&c. The losses to several of the sufferers will
be ruinous. It will take some weeks to repair
the damage to the canals. The waters are now
(3 o'clock, P. M.,) receding, aud the greatest
danger is over.
POTTS VILJ.E, PA., Sept. 3.—Several of the coal
mines are inundated, and the damage throughout
the region is immense. From what 1 can learn
here it will take fully a week to repair the
damage on the Heading Railroad, and it is doubt
ful whether the Schuylkill Canal will be able to
get any more coal through this season. Several
of the large dams are carried away. Between
thirty and forty houses were swept away from
Tamaqua. Sixteen lives were lost at Schall's
forge, above Port Clinton, fourteen at Jones'
forge, and several between Mount Carbon and
Schuylkill Haven.
1 READING, PA., Sept. 2, 1850—11 P. -M. —About
daylight the water commenced rising, and is
rising to this moment. It is some four or five
feet higher than ever known before. The whole
of the western and southern parts of the town
. are under water to Third street. The destruc
tion of property is immense. Boats have been
employed in rescuing people all day. The bridge
known as the Harrisburg bridge is entirely swept
away ; the first span went at 9 o'clock, and the
others in the course of the morning. The Lan-
I caster bridge is also entirely gone. Several
large bridges have come down the river, and it
is supposed none remain. One brick house with
seven persons in it, with the water at the second
story window, was suddenly crushed together
1 and fell—ail lost. A woman, floating down the
I river on a log, was saved by a boat. Twelve
hundred hogs, the property of Mr. Bushong,
distiller, have been scattered and drowned.
Houses in large numbers have been swept away,
arid others are filled to the second story. Im
mense quantities of lumber, wood, &c., swept
away. The gas works are full of water, also
nine rolling mills on the river.
In Schuylkill county, the loss is esti
mated at one million of dollars, and the
loss from Schuylkill county to Philadel
phia cannot he much less.

FP* JENNY LIND, the celebrated Swed

Sunday, by the steamer Atlantic. Her
arrival created a great sensation in the city.
She is to give her first concert on Wednes

The political news from Europe by the
All antic is not important.
LATER. —The Hihernia arrived at Hal
ifax on Wednesday with news from Eu
rope to the 21th. The crops in Ireland
arc very abundant. There is but little po
tato rot. In France matters looked rather
stormy. The President had been turned
out of a ballroom at Brisoon, and the room
had to be cleared at the'point of the bayo
net. The Holsteiners had dislodged the
Danish outposts at Kropp, and their whole
army had left Rensburg, and advanced in
the direction of the Danish position. In
Germany affairs are becoming more and
more complicated. Several heavy failures
arc reported at Hamburgh. Cotton had
slightly advanced on speculation, but flour
and grain continue low.
IMPORTANT DECISION. —We see it stated
that the Supreme Court of this State has
decided that an Administrator to an estate,
w ho fails in a suit instituted by himself, is
personally liable lor the costs. This is a
decision which it is important should be
generally known.
