THE NEXT GOVERNOR. Mr. Ingram : I have Sicon the names of many persons announced as candidates for Governor at the next election; and among thcrs that of Isaac Slenkuiv, Esq. of Uni- pn county. 11 the policy ot the democratic Eparty requires a new man one "lrcsli from the ranks of the pepplc" none better could bo selected to concentrate a united support, thin Mr. blenker. He is a licr- man a Ponnsylvanian a genuine Demo crat; and by his honest industry and appli cation, has risen from a poor Farmer's Boy to considerable eminence at the Bar, and to merited distinction in the Halls of legislation. His private character stands !Vii3Kvitliniit snnl nr Itlnmitili! nml for nnlltieal honesty and moral courage lie lias lew c- wSauals, and certainly no superiors, among thoso already named as "prominent" can didates. He neither seeks nor declines of fice, when oflered or conferred by the pco jple; and their confidence cannot be mispla feed in one so deserving and so qualified. This comes from one who has always sup- E ported the men and measures of the great republican family, and who therefore prides Ihimsclf in being A DEMOCRAT.
