This is a cabinet combining high par

General Oass was born iu New Ilamp
shi'c, in 1782, and is now seventy-five
years of age. At an early ago, ho cmigra
ted to the then wilderness of the West, and
located in tho State of Ohio, lie was hero
elected to several liighposit on.'in tho Ter
ritorial and Stato governments, by the
choice of tho people, a3 well as that of
President Jefferson, who recognized his
merits as a popular and able young man
When tho war of 1312 came on, General
Cass, obeying tho instincts of patriotism,
which has always been a marked trait in
his character, volunteered his services, and
entered tho army, to beat back tho Britisli
and Indian invaders. He served gallantly
under General Harrison, during tho whole
of his north-western campaign, and acqui
red much distinction as a brave and active
officerintho battle of tho Thames, as well
as in several other severely contested ac
tions. After the conclusion of tho war, he
was for many years, under successive ad
ministrations, Governor of the North-West
Territory, and in'"that position acquired
immensn jiopularity. Strongly imbued
with the-prLnciples of Democracy, General
Cisa was one of the ablest supporters of tho
hero Jackson, who. honored him with tho
most distinguished marks of confidonco
lie was made Secretary of War in Jackson's
fecond Cabinet, and discharged the duties
of that mostimportcnt department, at the
nullification era, with great credit to him
self and tho country. One of tho last act3
of tho hero of New Orleans was to fend
General Cass as Minister to France in 1830.
Ho remained at the Court of tho Tuilieries
until 1842, and during that time rendered
U3 more important service than almost any
other Minister we ever had abroad. By
his patriotism, ability and vigilance, he
succeeded in preventing Franco from bo.
coming a party to tho Quintuplo Treaty
between the great powers of Europe, which
asserted tho right of search against Amcri
cau vessels, and would, had it been ratified,
havo involved us in a bloody war against
half of Europe
In 1813 General Cas3 was nominated
for President, at Baltimore, by tho Demo
cratic Convention, receiving a two-third
yote on the fourth ballot. General Buttler,
of Kentucky, was selected Vice President.
Previous t this time he had written his
immortal Nicholson letter against the "Wil
mot Proviso," Uiaking tho then novel
ground that Congress had nothing to do
with slavery in tho Territories, but that it
belopged entirely to the peoplo who reside
there to settle. This position was furiously
assailed by tho opposition, but General Cass
has lived to sco it adopted as the fixed
policy i f tho government, In this cam
paign ho was beaten by General Tayl.ir, ,
receiving ono hundred and twenty-seven
rotes tn Gen. Taylor's one, hundred and
eixty three, s
General Cass was ono of tho principal
tuppurtcrs of the Compromise measures of
18S0, which wcro based upon the idea of
his Nicholson letter. In 1802 General Cass
was again a candidate for President at the
N,atioual Convention, and received by far
more votes than any other candidate. An
agreement was finally effected upon General
I'iorce, as a compromise man, and that
gentleman .then received tho support of
General Cats and his friends,
n.o lent tho imraetisa weight of his name
and influenco to the passage of tho Ncbras-
k.a,bill and to, Uis election of Mr. Bqghauan,!

IIowslIi Conn, of Georgia, lms won an
i onduring reputation by tho commanding
i ability with which he has discussed and tho
boldness with which ho has defended tho
rights guarantied by tho constitution, Ho
was horn in 1SG, in Georgia and conso
qucntly'is but forty-two. After graduating
at asouthcrn college, .ho entered upon tho
prctico of : lie law, and exhibited ability so
niirlctd that in 1837 ho was chosen by tho
Georgia logislaturo solicitor general. In
16-12 ho first appeared in tho national field
by an election to congress. In this body
) no took rank among tho foremost debaters,
and was reelected for foursuccossivo terms,
In 1810 ho was chosen speaker of tho house.
Succeeding this service ho was chosen in
1853 governor of Georgia, and in 1855
again was returned to congress, where his
power was universally felt, and his fitness
for leadership as universally acknowledged.
So elevated has been his patriotism ; so ir
rcproachablo is his private character; eo
industrious his habits ; so clear his intellect
that it is conceded on all bauds that he is
worthy of tho responsible post to which ho
his been called, and if prior servico be
any test, it is a guaranty of an ablo and
faithful administration of tho treasury de
parlmcnt.
JonN B. Floyd is of Virginia, where
his eminent services to tho democratic par
ty won for him a wido popularity. He
has powerfully supported tho democratic
candidates sinqo 1830, He is an eloquent
speaker; ha3 held many and variouspub
lic offices; was governor of Virginia in
1850; and has evinced administrative a
bihty of a high order. An opp"sition
journal concedes that ho "possesses con
sidcrablo talent and versatility, and from
experience iu various offices will no doubt
bo found competent to his new position.'
Ho made an ablo reply to Mr. Banks's
speech from tho steps of the Merchants'
Exchange, IScw York, and was a demo
cratie elector in tho last election.
Isaac Touct, of Connecticut, has had
a long and wide experience, both in his own
state and in tho general government. lie
served in tho house of rt presontatives from
1835 to 1639; in 1640 ho was elected gov
ernor of Connecticut; in 1852 was chosen
senator; and, in every station to which ho
has been called, has exhibited ability and
judgement. He was a fearless ndvocato
of tho Nebraska bill, and his argucmont
for this great measure will be a monument
of his patriotism and statesmanship long
after tho assults of faction th41 havo been
forgotten. To fino ability, Air. Toucey
has a private character above reproach ; a
fidelity to his friends as truo as Iho nccdlo
is to the polo; and tho President in him
will have a constitutional advisor who.
knows how to appreciate thodffioulties, aud
to estimate the patriotism and sacrifices of
thoso at tho north who stand by the nation
al compromisei, and arc laboring to recall
this section of tho country baok to fidelity
to the constitution.
Jacob Tiiomtso.v, of Mississippi, sovcr-
ed several years in congress from 1830 to
1851; and distinguished himself by his
industry, practical knowledgo of business,
and good sense. Ho applied himself faith
fully to measures of high importance, which
ho discussed with ability and eloquenco
and stern integrity. He, like Gov- Brown,
is a state rights southern democrat; but
also liko Governor Brown, did not, in tho
contest whenthe 1650 compromise incisures
wero enacted, go with tho cxtrenio southern
wing. He has great firmness of character;
largo personal popularity; thorough knowl
edgo of public affairs ; and is emphatically
a working man, having in him the quali
ties that go to mako up administrative a
bility of a high order,
Aabo.v V. Brown, is by birth a Virgin
ian, Ho early distinguished himself as a
lawyer in Tennessee, and was tho partner
of PresMcnt Polk, Ho was a senator in
tho Tcnnesseo legislaturo from 1821 to
1827, and a representative in 1831 and
1832, where ho earned a solid reputation
as a debator aud legislator. From 1839 to
1815, ho served in congress as a member of
tho hours. His speeches on tho "freedom
of elcctions,""tho burning of the Carolino,"
against tho tariff, of 1812, against tho Gs.
cai bank bill, on tho remission of Gen
Jackson's fine, on tho Florida treaty, and
on the Oregon bill, ftro pointed to by his
friends with pride as evidences of his supo
rior ability. In 1845 ho retired to private
life, but was met on his return homo with
tho news of bis nomination ai j governor by
the democratic state convention. Ho im
mediately entered upon the canvass, ex-
Senator Foster, ono of tho most popular
men in Tennessee being h'u opponent,
Tho canvass was a brilliant one, r.nd result
ed in Mr. Brown's election. II is admin
istration as governor proved him to bo pos-
scssod of great executive talent. He was
defeated by a very small majority for re-
election, owing to parties u.-wg evenly ual-
anced. In 1850 ho was a member of tho
Nashville convention, and though a stato
rigllts democrat, took ground against tho
cxtrenio radical viows which met with some-
canmuato lor mo vico presiuency uoioro
tho last national convention. Governor
Mr own made very ablo speeches against
know nothiugism, sharply exposing its in
sidious character. Ho is 62 ycar3 of age,
stands high in the confidcuca of the demo
cratic party, and will mako a capital cabi.

e . .......
ono of tho greatest and best mon of tho
country. Ho Is a Pcnnsylvanian by birth,
and wusloYti in 1810. Ho devoted him
stlf to n professional life, nnd never held a
purely political office; In 1842 ho was ap.
pointed ono of tho district judges of Penn
sylvania i bcctimo on tho bench tho chief
justice,. and iu 1E51 was elected to tho su
premo bench, JIh literary attainments
aro of tho very highest order. Ho is pro
found in his knowledgo of law, and his
opinions as a judgo havo won for him tho
highest respect of his professional brethren
Ilia selection has elicited tho flattering cu.
logiums oven from tbo opposition press
Thus Iho Philadelphia Gazette says "lie
is a lawyer of very high attainment', and
of most accomplished mind in other re
spects; and we aro euro ho will do emi
nent credit to his now po"sition.'' Tho
Pcnnsylvanian (democratic) remarks
Tho purity of his character, tho inbred and
incorruptible honesty of his nature, tho
soundness of his principles, tho superior
brilliancy and clearness of his intellect, all
stamp him with tho genious attributes of
truo greatness. Tho nation could not havo
marshalled into her service a nobler spirit "
Thisglanco at the antecedents of the
personnel of tho now administration shows
that it has a marked homogeneous charac
ter. Not that tho members went as a unit
on tho exciting questions that havo lately
divided the country; but that they all held
their views and action na subject to tho
paramount duty of tho preservation of tho
Unmn. Hence, wlnlo this cabinet i3 rep
resentative of tho strictest fidelity to con
stitutional right), it is emphatically a rep
resentative of that national sentiment, that
comprehensive regard to all tho interest
of our common country, which should ever
mark tho couusols and tho conduct of pa
trot statesman.
And at its head, as the dispenser of the
political-power, as emphatically tho Pbes
idest, is tho illustrious statcsmau, who
has just solemnly declared, that ho is con
vinced he owes his groat ofiico "to tho
inherent love for tho constitution and the
Union which still animates tho hearts of
the American people;" and who can have
no motivo to influence his conduct but the
desire ably and faithfully to serve his coun
try, and to live in tho grato'ul memory of
U3 countrymen. Let patriotic citizens, of
whatever party, sharply review tho past and
calmly survey the present in tho legacy of
"tho richest political blessings which Heav
en has bestowed upon any uatio'n;" and
then say whether such an administration,
based on such a platform as tho inaugural,
is ngt worthy of their utiited and powerful
support. But especially let tho great na
tional party that called this administration
into pwer, resolve to rally round it with
zeal and enthusiasm. Measures emana
ting from such a source deserves to be
judged with candor; and the past is a
guaranty that thoy will bo found worthy of
tho support of the patriotism and intelli
gence of tho American peoplo.
Judge Black's Successor,
Tho transfer of Hon. Jeremiah S. Blaok,
by President Buchamn, from tho Supreme
Bench of Pennsylvania to a seat in his cab
inet, has created a vacancy in tho Supremo
Court, which will be temporarily filled by
appointment of Governor Pollock until the
Election in next October. Mean time,
tho Democratic State Convention, will rc
asscmblo and nominate a candidate for the
succession, it is uncertain who will tie
nominee, but 'as a matter of information,
wo gave tho names of several distinguished
democrats, who havo already been named
by tho newspapers viz :
William Strong, of Berks county.
Charles A. Black, of Greene.
William A. Stokes, of Westmoreland.
James Thompson, of Erie.
Hopewell Hopburn, of Pittsburg.
From such an array of distinguished
gentlemen, with others who will yet doubtless
bo proposed, tho Convention can havo littla
difficulty in making a judicious scloction.

Wc,bri!ly rcforrtd yesterday morning,
says tho I'aihtylvanian, of Wednesday, to
tho fact that tho Democratic Stato Conven
tion had nominated Hon. William F.
Packer, of Lycoming County,for Governor.
Ho has been tho architect of his own for
tunes, and has risen to his present position
from tho starting point of a printer's ap
prentice. Previous to his appointment as
Auditor General by Gov. Porter, ho lad
been for a short timo ono of tho Canal
Commissioners of tho Stato. Ho was
Speaker of tho Pennsylvania Logislaturo
during tho session of 1848 and 1840, and
was soon after elected a member of a Stato
Senate, whero ho boro a conspicuous part
in all its deliberations It will thus bo
seen that tho training of Gen. Packer lias
been admirably calculated to qualify him
for the office of Governor, Endowed with
an active and penetrating mind, by his ripe
cxpcricnco ho has bccouio fully conversant
with all tho varied interests of tho State,
and when hois elected, we shall once more
havo a Governor of our uoblo old Com
monwealth who knows something about
her interest nnd of tho duties devolving
upon tho Executive, and who will thus pre
sent a refreshing contrast to the present in
efficient incumbent. Gen. Packer is one of
tho finest speakers in the Stato. During
tho last campaign ho rendered very effeo
tivo service to tho Democratic cause, and
his speeches always commanded tho deep
and earnest attention of his auditors.
For Canal Commissioner, Hon. Nimrod
Strickland, of Chester County, was nomi.
natcd upon tho second ballot. Wo have
known him long and well,' and wo do not
believe that any party in this Stato over
made a better nomination for a State office.
There is no man in tho Commonwealth
who has, through life, maintained a higher
and moro hounralU personal character
than Judgo Strickland. Ardently attach
ed to the Democratic patty, ho has given
tho best energies of his life to its service,
and few men have labored moro zealously
and efficiently for it3 success. Connected
with that staunch old Democratic paper,
the West Chester Ripublicun, as its editor,
for near fifteen years, his vigorous and in
dustrious pen was ever busy in sustaining
great principles, and his political services
as an ablo and convincing writer, were of
a very important and useful nature. Not
withstanding his straightforward political
course, howover, his high moral character
and unswerving integrity havo always se
cured to him the lespoct and esteem of the
members of all parties, wherever ho is
known. As an evidence of this, ho was
last year elected Associate Judgo in Ches
ter County by a handsome majority, al
though the Democratic Stato ticket was in
a minority of several huudrcd. No stain
or blemish mars the purity of his life. Ho
will go into tho office, if elected, with clean
hands, and no ono who knows him will
doubt that ho will como out of it equally
pure, and free from ail taint of corruption,
or tampering with tho public interests.
Diligent, faithful, upright and intelligent,
ho would do honor to the station, and tho
pcopla of tho State cannot do themselves
better servico than by electing him.
ForJudgo of the Supremo Court, tho
present able Chief Justice, Hon. Ellis Low
is, has been ro-nominatcd. In early life,
he, liko Gen. Pirckcr, learned tho myste
ries of tho "art preservative of all arts,'1
and for some timo edited a newspaper in
Lycoming county. In 1832 and 1833, ho
was a prominent member in the State Leg
islature. In tho latter year ho was ap
pointed Attorney-General by Gov. Wolf,
and shortly after ho was appointed Presi
dent Judge of tho Lycoming district, which
position ho occupied for twelve years, until
in 1845, ho was appointed Judgo of the
District composed of the county of Lan
caster, In 1851 ho was elected Judgo of
the supremo Conrt of Pennsylvania, and
since tho expiration of Judgo Black's
term as Justice in 1855, ho has occupied
that position, ror twenty-lour years
Judge Lewis has now occupied high Judi
cial positions, and during all that period he
has most ardently devoted himself to his
profession. At tins day he stands in tho
front rank of tho Jurist of tho ago, Thoro
can bo but ono opinion as to h'u abilities
and devotion to his duties. Notwithstand
ing the eminence he has attained, ho dis
plays tho somo unflagging industry that
has distinguished him through life, and his
opinions givo ample evidenco of tho pos-
eesjion of an amount of legal Ioarning rare
Jy attained even by tho most skilful and
distinguished Judges."
ltogether, our ticket 13 a good ono a
very good ono ono that every Democrat
may bo prcud of, and ono eminently ue
serving of success at tho polls in October.
