B. W. EWTOR. " aiogasslmvp, U*LiMMdu/, Juu. 21, 185 T. RWIM*RLVWN I A ®BT RAYED. By this time almost every person in Penn- jn}Sih£d-of iheekciioo ol Came ron by treachery and corruption. No man i heart rejoins* over this remit, for even those Republicans who may like the treason despise the traitors, and have their misgiv ing* that thia will be for rhem a fruitless • victory. They begin to see the responsibility they have assumed, and feel like Phvrrus of old.—-"another such victory and we are un done," 't wo years ago even Know-Noth ihgirm ahrntrk appalled from contact with ruoh * man as Cameron, and assumed the (ambiance of a virtue if it had it not. Re publicanism has fallen even lower than was KnowNothingism. Defeat tnd desperation has destroybJ every memory and impii!'* •in it except its intense hate of DEMOCRACY. Upon that hato alone it lives now, and upon that it rftllied together for Cameron the men who once'talked about honor. It was this hit* of Democracy that-spiced the "buzzard's feast*' to which they all went in. But the traitors had other motives, and sfai for Pennsylvania that it should be so I ft treed dot surprise men, for every time has feed its Georgey or Arnold. Even among the twelve faithful ehosfn by him who spake aanever man apake there was one to betray. Human nature has its fraii'fie# ood these are •of them. Bold bad men evoy vear corrupt the fountains of logiilation, and bang like parasites around the members at r.'ai'isburg ami Washington. Even members ge s° ,n * ialuated with the life of reckless and dipt- 0 ' lute adventure, that alter they have lust *ll character and hope at home they go year , after year 'o beg some situation of lackey or j hanger-on at the outskirts. The members •from Schuylkill care only for money, and . would just as likely have long 6ince belong ed to the Opposition if it had looked expedi- . cnt and profitable to do so. It is as easy for the'm lo serve one party as another. They j 'tlvc in the wild and whirling tide of a , changeable population and still more change- , able business,—speculation more like gam- ■ bling lhao business—where character is sel dom inquired after. Cameron has long since j had his stool pigeona in Schuylkill, and these causes.made these men approachable by the arch-intriguer. As to Foster, he has as effectually destroy- i d himself as Lebo, Waganseller or Menear; j , and sold himself for the low price of selfish j ( passion and revenge. The mind roust be | ] narrow which, like I.ts, can give nothing to | the cause it presumes to help lead. A nau j„ is never great who cannot sacrifice selfish- [ ( cess. In litis case, when he end his taiseJ the staodiud of rebellion it was pointing out , the way for treason, and offering a p.'Otext and justification for it. The result has neither injured the cause of ] Democracy nor its chieftain in litis fray.— j Col. Foruey lias lost nothing in the contest, j ■ for the treachery was lo favor Cameron, and i the cause was money. So it mattered not i , who was (ho Democratic nominee—the recult j would have been the same under*uy othor j , leader of our csuse. The C'nnnl Hoard, The Marr'tsbttrg Vn ton of the 17th says : ' t "Col. George Scott, the newly-elected Canal j t Commissioner, was qualified on Tuesday | '• last, and took his scut in ths Board. Col. < Henry S. Moll was elected President, and 1 Thes. L. Wilson was re-elected Clerk. The ; Board now consists of Mesrs. Mott, Plumer, j t and Scott. Col. Scott is a gentleman of s:er- i ling-integrity, is practical, and thoroughly 1 posted upon lite working* of onr State im- oravemettis. and will make su oble and effi- , eicnt officer. Tfco Board, as now constituted, is unex- , -eeptionable, and will command the confi- I Henro of the people of the State. We have, heretofore, spoken in terns of high praise of ' each member of the Board, and we have had no reason to change our good opinion of j thvrn.

' [CQmNUCD.] Eveh in Sc'OA KLOAF TOWNSHIP, which eer talnly has many difficulties to contend with in the effort for good schools by reason of its sparse and sra'.teretd population, we found a school with a chtss of 16 scholars in Geog '• rapby, whit a uniformity of books both in - this and- other studies; and in which there seemed an eatnist zeal to lero in every . scire, far, and. n correspui.diiig labor of love . on the part of the teacher. Tfue, all'the , schools of tho district are not 60 successful j as the one at Cols-s Creek, but this school 1 proves that all can be made good if there is . a proper effort. Sometimes persons say 'any j teacharwill do for our school, for it's very f | bickward,' If such persons were told that f j their children could not learn like others, or I did not deserve to be equally well taught, 1 because lltey were made o( different male- j , j rial from the rest of childkind, die/ would , j feel insulted. Aud yet it is Hio same insult | which they use themselves. Auy school oan , I be made good, but it requires effort, and the j co operation of pareuis, directors and teach- j , | era. Nothing is more pernicious than lite | , election of a.ui-sehool men as directors, or | even of men whose heart is not in the oause. | HEMLOCK district has r.ot as good schools I as its opportunities and means ought to ex- ! i iiibit. lit could be one of the first districts jin the county. But so long as the Directors persist to employ a teacher who does not ' know-a note of interrogation nor its use, and J cannot add f and J together our hope for progress is laiut. We found Menial Arith* 1 nietic taught -only in Miss Ferlie's school, 1 which seems-in all rcspeots lo ; be the best conducted and most advanced school ol the ! district. At our first visit there two winters ago we found the scholars were not taught ! the difference between a comma and a peri ' od. There hascertuinly been a maiked pro , gress since then. At the Forks school we I gave instructions to have a class organized 'in Ural Arithmetic, and thai punctuation ' sJiotfld be taught in the reading exercise; ' w |,, oh we are told has since been done.— j ivConce't to ®ding in its origin was found at the new ißickborn school, but it is surely , impossible for'scholars to learn oven puttclu ' ation or the i " f ' o ad"g f" Emerson's | books, whichCv'"do bi neither instructions for | reaJiug, uor any t xefdses to illustrate inllec [ lion or modulation ci f lb o voice.

It i . understood that Judge Douglas will soon re i, port a bill for this purpose, aud also form a new Territory out ol the 7"ti:riiory of Miu . nesota, to be called the Territory of Dacotah. Judge Douglas' MM will propose the division , of Minne.ontu, by a north and south line, into naartf equal pans, the eastern half to form , the State of Minnesota, and the western half the Territory ol Dacotah. A bill authorizing the people of Oregon to form a-constitation and State government, is in Cummittuo of the Whole in the House, and it is probable that ibis will be taken up' and passed tbtough at the same dime with the bills above alluded to. ty It is rather discreditable to quote from the New York Herald upon political subjects. The reputation of that paper in politics, and perhaps ill other metiers, is rather shakey, and Its opinions must be received with much caution; but the e(tract we give below is to exhibit His effect which success in an oppo neiu has upon some men, who always desire to be with the big crowd. Mr. Buchanan has as yet done nothing to change the opin ion which entertained of hirn last summer, and yet the weather-cook has come round with remarkable facility : "We anticipate from Mr. Buchanan a prac tical, capable, united working Cabinet, and a policy of now appointments, if necessary, every tfx or eight weeks, until this desidera tum of a team of seven horses that will puli all together at the crack of the whip, shall have been secured. We anticipate also, I from the President elect, a general policy of | honesty and conservatism, and yot of rigor, ability and progress, in our foreign and do mestic affairs, eminently satisfactory and advantageous to the country. Already, too, 'as if in expectation of such things, we per ceive that the Southern fire-eaters are oooling down, and that our Northern agitators are -subsiding into the sober affairs of every day life. In a word, all the signs of the limes are auspicious of a new administration ps firm and straightforward as that of Jackson, ! yet as conciliatory to all parties and section# : as that of Monroe. REPUDIATION IN CALIFORNIA. —The Califor nians have been running very largely into debt, though the Constitution of the State prohibits ar.y debt to be contracted which shall swell the total amount of indebtedness beyond 8300,000, unless the bills making any further appropriations should be submit ted to the people, and be ratified by them. The amount of debt contracted by the Stale is over three millions of dolltrs, and all the ex cess over $300,000 without iho people's ratifi cation is by a decision of the Supreme Court doclarcd to be illegal. Tuis decision affects : parties ill Now York and Philadelphia, where | the bonds of the Slate are held, and it has I already seriously depreciated the vatao of I sncli securities. The sentiment in Califorv l nia, so far as the San FTarrcisco jonmole re flect it, seems to be decididiy in favor of the people sanctioning and legalizing the debt. YANKEE ENTERPRISE.—A Boston mechanic named McGowan has contracted with the Russian Government for the removal of the ships of war which were sunk iu the harbor of Sebastnpol for the defence of the town.— The vessels were made air-light, and were supplied with orifices to attach hose to pump ,hertl out. On attempting to raiso them in this manner the seems were found to have started to such a degree, as to render it im possible. They will now be raised by ohains and large scows made for the purpose, ap- j plied to the ships by men in sub marine ar mer. There are one hundred and twenty one vessels in all, and the price to be paid i is said to be in the vicinity of $200,000. United Slates Senators.

Part of the clothing and some val uables were taken. The trunk contained a large assortment of the Judge ( s opinions, whioh the rascal left behind.

Benton slated that he had nevel received, any pay for his lectures, and never would ; but the Boston people have complimented him by making hirti a present of two hundred dol lars for a lecture, and that a similar compli ment would be satisfactory to him.

As such, they met in caunus, and : determined to admit none to their defibera | tions but such as were known to be true to the great principles of that Organization. Jn vindication of those principles, they also de termined to support no man fot any office in the gift of the Legislature, who was not equally kaavutYo lit> true to them, as well aa to the interests of the CommonweaYftf. At the' Conventional Caucus, helj to nominate a candidate for State Treausrer, members of the American Organization were relused ad mittance, simply because they had refused to co-operate with the party from'the begin ning, and to vote.for Its cduCUS nominees.— But at,lhe caucus held on the evening of the 9th insw, (hose who had been refused admit tance to the previous caucus were found in attendance; and some who wire only known as the bitter enemies of the American organ ization, were with us, directing and controll ing the iromfinaiion of one of the most in- Iriguemg, if not ihe most corrupt politicians in the State. A resolution was offered to exclude these objectionable persons, and their own votes indefinitely postponed the consideration of the resolution. Amotion was then made to proceed to nominate a candidate for the United States Senate by a viva voce. An amendment was offered, substituting a vote by-ballot. The amendment was adopted and the resolution carried by a majority df only thru— thus showing (hat those who had no , right to be .present held a controlling influ ence, or the balance of power. Here let us reflect for a moment upon our j ■own position. There were before that cau- | cus some of the best men in Pennsylvania, whose friends were urging them as proper , candidates. There were in that caucus less . than twenty men who openly admitted they ( would vote for Simon Cameron. Under those , circumstances It seemed scarcely possible , that ho could be nominated. He was openly . repudiated by three-fourths of the members, | and certainly we had no reason to fear, with (his open avowal of hostility, for elmost any other of the names before us would have , been acoeplable. It is (rue they had masked I ] themselves by the secret ballot; but to ns j , this was more at, evidence of cowardice than | of perfidy. We could not believe that all , who had voted for the secret ballot, had done | so to hide themselves from their constituents, , or to betray us into the support of a man de- / spued and disowned by every political or- ; gan'za'tion in Pennsylvania- ft wss not until ( we t'eganto ballot, that ourbetraya! became | manifest. It was then that wo discovered the / treachery that was pretending to oppose Cam- eron, tvttd yet hypocritically and Becretly vo- ( ling fa: his nomination. t The power that controlled thai caucus was fi too psllpable, corruption was behind the throne, and DO wonder that its victims skulk- s J behind a secret vote, and covered their 6 deeds lr.im the eyes and knowledge of the t beholdfeu. , YVei|e we justified in leaving the caucuß ( when the evidence, to our minds, had become ' \ demonstrative ? Could we, as the represent atives Can honest constituency, hsve served j thetn with fidelity by remaining I Could we have exonerated ourselves from (lie odium of such,a nomination if we had delayed our deparlnfe and aided to consummate such n result I Could we beve remained in that oau cu6 believing ourselves bound by its action, and justitied ourselves in votiDg for a man whose uliole history is but Ihe history of in trigue ?—a man who has deapiaed all party obligations', and treated all caucuses with contempt? The inquiry erisea, who is Simon Comeron! As a Si ale ,man, fame has never associated hit name with the word. Ae a politician, he has always professed to be a Democrat, and yet that patty only remembers him because of his treachery, and speaks of him as a traitor. As a Whig,it is his boast that be never voted a Whig ticket in his life—that party being saved from tuoh a disgrace. At an American and Aoli-Slatvety man lot the record speak for itself. At a County Convention, held in the Court House, to the borough of Harris burg, on the second day of last September, Simon Cameron was a delegate and an ac , tlvb member. The following resolutions were offered iR that Convention, nd aw Mid A" nave oeen in his handwriting. Certainly, - they mot with no opposition from him; Resolved, That wa hare confidence iu the ! administration of Gen. Pierce, because he , has manfully battled for those prinoipies, and , thrown its influence in favor of sustaining . the right of man to eelf government. Resolved, That the able, fearless, aud Dem ocratic administration of Go*. Bigler meets , our heady approbation, #nd we congratulate , tno Democracy ol the Slate upon the certainly of his election.. .7 - , Resolved, That Judge Black, the able and r intrepid Justice of Ihe Supreme Court, has So conducted himself as to win the esteem and confidence of the people.' Resolved, That the manly repudiation of i Know Notbingism by Henry S. Molt has won j i the respect of even bis enemies, and will i add largely to his majority at the coming t election. , Resolved, That wo are in favor of the No braska-Kansas bill, because it embodies the vital principles of belf-government, which never can .conflict with the interests of free- j • dom. Resolved, That we are opposed 10 the pro- I scriptive and anti-republican order called t Know Nothings, and shall deem it our duly, i aa Democrats, to oppose for office all persons , known to hav* any connection with it.

Bet do not fbe people of Pennsylvania ex pect'someth',ig more of the present'Legista luro WiWliA election of "an eld polideM hack?" Tire great polhtsal revolution that brought tbe American party into power, has no parallel in tho history of Pennsylvania.— The old party organizations were dissolved by au unseen power, and old politicians with all their schemes, left floundering or wrecked with the elements that supported them, ab sorbed by the mysterious power of au organ ization beyond their control. JThi* great rev olution is not without its lesson. The old parties with their loading politicians, were corrupt; and it was their signal destruction tho people sought when tltey put their power into the new organization. They did rebuke corruption, and the parly in power stands as a monument of,that rebuke. Shsil the American party then,in the face I of all its professions and actions, be now made ! the dishonored insttuonenl in elevating Simon Cameron to the highest office in its gift? and thus hold him up to the world as the expo nent, embodiment, and personification of Americanism I We trust not. WE CON SIDER HIM A FIT EXPONENT OF NOTH ING GOOD ; AND A FIT EXPONENT OF NO HONORABLE PRINCIPLE. As Penn sylvauiaus, we remember that our State mot to, as adopted by our ancestors of seventy-, six is "Virtue, Liberty and Independence." We reverence this glorious old motto; and bear in mind that we but recently swore at representatives, to perform our Juliet as such, with fidelity ; fidelity to our constituents, fi delity to our native Slate, and fidelity to the ennobling principle engraven on our Slate escutcheon. Shall we then, or oan we con sistently with (ire oaths we have taken, sup port a nomination so destitute of every ele ment of virtue, which would disgrace the Amer ican Organization and our own native State; and which we feel assured, our constituents will repudiate with scorn and rightoous in dignation. We recognize no power in any caucus, 'to require us thus to sacrifice our in tegrity to throw away our self respect, or to vio late our oaths ; and therefore it is, that in the independence of freemen, we strike down king caucus at the bidding of our country. Above our venerated motto, and associated with it in all the true memories of the past, and our hopes of the future, the Amerioan eagle—our national emblem, and our coun try's pride. Il ever adorns our starry flag ; and it spreads its "wings of glory over us" as a protecting angel. When we go into the Hal! of the House of Representatives, to exe cute the most important trust confided to us, we desire to meet something there having some analogy or concordance with these glo rious recollections, and these sacred emblems. Grnnt us this or something approximating to this, and all will be well; and our hearts and our hands, will be with you, both to do and to date. But what we say unto one we say unto all invite us not in there to partake of a buzzard's feast. Ask us not to support a nom ination brought about, as We believe, by the concentrated and "cohesive poivar of public plunder," and tho superadded element of shame less and wholesale private bribery. All counte nance and participation In such things as these, we not only most earnestly and por emptorily decline, but have pledged our selves unitedly and determinedly to oppose. Such is a brief and hasty outline of our past action and our intended future course. We submit it to our constituents, confident of a triumphant vindication, and we cordially in vito all our hottest fellow-representatives, whether in the late caucus or not, to rally with us in this contest, and to make common cause with us for the honor and the glory oi out Native State, assuring them that though it may have passed into an adage that "Paris is France," yet Harrisburg is not Pennsyl vania.

Tits TROUSSEAU or A SLAVS Btupi.—A let ter of the Joatnal of Commerce, from a lady who'owns slaves in Georgia, gives an ac count of the recent marriage of one of her negroes, in which she remarks:— "The cpupte, ttwt nfght, were both very young and handsome, and tbe groom in a full suit of black, with a white cravat, looked as serene and unembarrassed as if he had been a gentleman. The bride's trousseau, furnished by her parents, who, like herself, are common field hands, would do credit to many a decent white mechanic. She has seven ntew dresses and a shawl, besides more necessary articlss, and the trifles from the groom, one of which is invariably a bottle of cologne." X3F The Erie City Bank has closed its doors, owing, as some of its apologists very truthfully say, to the "heavy outside pres sure." This is one of the banks created two years ago as belonging to the "judicious in crease." The Germantown Telegraph trusts that the Legislature will be very careful how it yields this session to similar "public ne cessities" lor new banks.

Resolved, That the conduct of WiHism B. Lebo and George Wagonseller, in connoo tion with another traitor from York county, in voting for Simon Cameron for U. S. Sen®, tor, in known and open defiance of lb* wishes of the entire Democracyref Schuyl kill county, is a direct violation of their re peated assurances and professions before d their election. Resolved, That for such traitors we know of no adequate punishment provided by law, and can oi.l/ express the e' ecration ot a de ceived and outraged conslitutettoy, who wIU treat these Arnold's and Gorgey's with ex clusion from all social and and political iu* tercourse. Resolved, That we have no doubt this coo duct is the result of bribery, that the consid eration for this betrayal was gold—and that these guilty wretches and their confederates may be exposed to the world as a warning to all others, we ask the House o? Represen tatives of Pennsylvania to cause a full in vestigation of the means by which this un paralleled freed and treason was cotnmilteJ. Resolved, That we request the County Committee to notily the delegates in the late County Convention, who by misplaced con fidence caused the nomination of these trai tors, to assemble at the Court House, In Pottsville, on Saturday, the 2-ftb inst., aud that a County meeting of the party be called to moot on the same day and place, at such an hour as shall be fixed hereafter, to ex press their opinions and wishes, respectively, in refcrenco to this treason. Resolved, That for a professing Democrat to sustain or approve tho conduct of these traitors, is acknowledging their own com plicity in tlieir infamous transactions, and to confess that at heart they have boen hypo crites and enemies of the Democrstio party and its principles. Resolved, That we hereby solicit the Bu chanan and Breckinridge Clubs in the sev eral districts, in this county, to assemble and make known their feelings of fndignation at the wrorg that has been inflicted upon them.
