Hon. Daniel M. Smyser, of Adams County CLE.ARFIELD, PA., . Wednesday,' October 4, 1854. BIGLER'S ADDRESS. ... " Ve hope our readers will not fail to read 'our article in another column, in reference to the recent 'appeal' issued by Gov. Bigler.- Wc were compelled to write it hastily and im perfectly, nor could we occupy sufficient space, to treat the address as its length demanded. It nevertheless cantains some points, which will afford matter for reflection. Remember. That Gov. Bigler is in favor of the Repeal of the Missouri Compromise, and that his election will be hailed as a Nebraska Victory, as an endorsement by Pennsylvania of this "infamous Bill," which has-been' dc nounced by every true friend of Freedom. PHILADELPHIA. We have news from Philadelphia by which we are assured that Pollock, will receive, in the consolidated city, over ten thousand ma jorityf The attempt to create the impression that there is any dissatisfaction existing there, which will affect the State Ticket, is simply absurd. If the rest of the State doc3 as well as Philadelphia, Pollock's majority will be FIFTY THOUSAND Mark the prediction. "A BIG LIE." "We are well aware that the most strenuous efforts have been made, and are still making, to strengthen the cause of Whiggery in this County through the agency of Knaw-Notking-lsm. "Democratic Paper." ... "Being determined to tell as big a lie aa possi ble" you "hit upon the above." Go it Daniel, If yon think there is no h ope; yon have nothing to care, and everything to gain. Let Ler flicker. . . ..; .r .. ; DISORGANIZATION IN BERKS. Let those who think Bigler will get hia usu al majority In Berks, read the article on our drst page from the "Berks County Press," the regular Democratic 'Organ.' "The democracy are rent and torn dissension and disaffection prevail." The same thing is true of more Counties than Berks. The political fate of Bigler, Campbell, & Co., is sealed, and all the stumping the Clearfield 'Clique' can do, wont save them. No,not even the unparalleled elo quence of the Valliant Captain of the'Chinckle--eanioose' Rangers,' the illustrious "Corporal," and the "learned Judge." They are-"a licked community," and. sis they are net "Know Nothings" they Knoie it. Lancaster all right. Wc have good authori ty for saying that Bigler will have "six hun dred" majority in Lancaster County. Being determi ned to tell as big a lie as possible, wc hit upon the above. "Democratic Papers' "And, as usual, you succeeded most admira bly. Don't think you can be beat at the game by anybody in "the wild cat district." Guess you must have been trying the same experi ment when you alleged that the story was circulated in this county that Gov. Bigler had a daughter in a nunnery: or. perhaps you were thinking of the time when your party circula ted the same story about General Scott. You're a posey, ain't you ? PERSECUTION. The latest scheme of the Locofoco wire workers here, is to get up the cry of " Perse cution" against Gov. Bigler, and for this pur pose the greatest misrepresentations have been made, and the lowest means resorted to, we have ever known to be used in a political contest. If is ' alleged that "through the la bors of hired vilifiers,' many of his neighbors have been led to condemn his conduct, &c." " Wc don't know exactly what this means, but if there are any 'hired viliflers' in the couuty, they must be the 'paid clerks' and other recip ients of official favors, who, instead of being At their posts, have been here conducting this campaign, and dealing in wholesale slanders against the candidates of the Whig party. We utterly and entirely deny that one word has been said, publicly or privately, by a Whig, as such, against the character of Gov. Bigler, or any other candidate. On the con trary," we have said through our paper, and the whig speakers liave said in the public meetings that have been held, that we believe Gov. Bigler to be a gentleman in every re spect, and the first word has yet to be ' said of his private character. But," notwithstanding all this, and the fact ; that they are claily aud weekly slandering Judge Pollock, these con sistent gentlemen, would have the people be lieve that Gov. Bigler is 'vilified' and persecu ted, as .no other man ever was in Pennsylvania. This scheme of exciting f sympathy,' is an old one with the Locofoco party, and has long Ago been wonUhreadbare. It is, at all events, a mighty .low businesstoseek to obtain votes through pity' and all they can get in that wayV WO- 'Perfectly, .willing, they 'sball have," o Jong jm they do not resort to falsehood and 8r9pre.se"nuyon"of Individuals who are noi Jhsr candidates n?r. aspirant, f" ' . GOV. BIGLER'S APPEAL. . An appeal, some. five or six news-paper - columns long,-has been issued byGov. Bigler. and thousand of copies, franked by the officers at llafri.--burg, as official papers, have been sent all over the State. In this county it has been freely; and extensively , circulated, so that, wo piesunie, all of our readers have been furnished with a copy of the -modal' document, and can refer., to it and seo whether, in what we have to say, we "misrepresent" its con tents or not. He begins by a most contemptible and undignifi ed fling at Judge Pollock, which, even if it was true, he should never have mentioned. We should be sorry to accuse him of falsehood, and shall, therefore, charitably presume he has been misin formed, when he says that during the three weeks he was confined to his room, - "the canvass was ac tively pursued by Lis opponent " .With a gener osity, which Eig!r himself was far from exhibit ing, J ndge Pollock, ceased his labors in the west ern part of the Commonwealth, when he heard of Uov; Bigler's illne.M, and leaving the fctato, went to Buffalo, where he remained until news came that the Governor was better. For the truth of this we can refer to Col. A. G. Ccrtiv, and other distinguished gentlemen who accompanied him. But, how was it with Gov. Bigler? . At the begin ing of the campaign, it was announced in all the Whig papers that Judge Pollock would stump the State, after the farmers would get in their grain. and tho proper time would arrive. This was well understood, by all parties. But when the time came, Judge Pollock was lying extremely ill at his homein Milton. Then, and not till then, Gov Bigler issued a Proclamation that be would canvass tho State, and started off on his expedition, while Judge Pollock was still unable to leave his couch. Immediately all the democratic paper?, began to crow over the' fact, and alleged that Judge Pol lock was afraid to meet Bigler before tho people ! So much for Governor Bigler's generosity and mag nanimity, in politics. ; ' The next point in the address is that :lthe finan ces of the State were never in a more wholesome condition." and this with a public debt of over Forty six millions, or Out thousand Jive hundred and eighty-one tons! A debt thatit would require "03 wagons and four thousand horses to haul, and every year being increased ! Such is the 'whole some' condition of our State finances. The next question which ia alluded to in the ad dress, is tho Sale of tho Public Works, which ho re gards simply as 'a business transaction.' He occu pies hi3 usual non-committal, or whip-the-devil-rnund-the-stnrop position, and talks about the 'compensation" for them, Ac , just as he did in hi3 annual message, and just as those members of tho Legislature did who loaded the Bill, last winter. with reslriciona and conditio ifor tho oxpress purposo of defeating it. Notwithstandingthis mea sure is demanded by the people, Gov Eigler is ev idently opposed to it, and will do all he ean, to gether with tho leaders of his party w ho are in debted to them for their bread and butter, to pre vent their sale. JIo next descants upon the banking qucstion,but forgets to tell how it happened that, while he ve toed some bank bill', ho approved others contain ing exactly similar provisions! There is no other question (always excepting tho Liquor Law) upon which the Gov. occupies a more "straddle-legs" position than on bis profcssel opposition to corpo ration! and monopolie. The next snbjoct of importance that receives his august attention, is tho School Question, upon which he has at last been forcc-l to express an opin ion. But he does not coma out freely and openly, like Judge Pollock, and say "if my church, or any church, chooses to enter the political arena, cows WITH it!" From tho School Question, he gets to the Prohib- atory Law, on which he Btands precisely in the saino position as he did before the Stato Conven tion, when his letter was declared 'unsatisfactory.' lie would desire to leavo the impression that he is in favor of tho Law, but hear the Ilarrisburg Un ion, his organ at the Capitol : . . "Up democratic guards of Dauphin, and charge f r victory. Up for Bigler, Black, and Mott ! Route the 2Iainr Isciv: fanitics, the Whigs, the Know Nothings, Ac." It is not diQ:ult to seo who are running him as their candidate- He also p-dmiU in this address that he has vetoed tho Lager Beer Bill, passed last session, thus proving most conclusively that ho is the Anti-rrohibatory candidate. But row wo come to tho great burthen of his song, the "Know Nothings ' Wc havo no particu lar love for secret societies, nor do we desire to be come their peculiar. apologists. But we have a re gard for tho Constitution, and Republican Institu tions of oar Country, and while that Coostitntion guarantees to every man the right to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience, it also secures to every American citizen, the rigit to vote for whom ho may see propor, and for what reasons ho may soa proper. If therefore,-tie hold a different religious creed from a certain ean cUdato, and on that ground atom, sec proper to vote against him, we are only exercising that right as guaranteed to us by the Constitution. And if wc pledge ourself to vdc for no one holding that creed, whether publicly or privately, we most cer tainly viola to no word, phraso, or clan so .of tho Constitutiou. If therefore, a portion of our citi zens, seo proper to form an organization, whether open or eecret, and mutually pledge themselves not to voto for individuals holding a different re ligious or political creed, we cannot see how it conflicts with, or "violates" "the "guarantees and immunities" secured to us by the Constitution. ; It is precisely the same privilego which Gov. Bigler claims for himself, yet denounces in others. . Will he vote for a Whig, Free Soiler, or Native Ameri can? And why?, Simply because they hold dif ferent principles from the party to which ho be longs. Will he vote for a Mormon, a Deist, or an Infidel ? We presume not, and for the same rea son. Now if we happen to hold the doctrine that the tenets of a particular church are inimical to our form of goverrment, that iU teachings arc directly contrary to tho spirit of all our Institu tions, and to republican liberty, havo we not tho saw right, to vote against an individual that holds such a ereed, as he has to voto against a Whig, a Native, or a Mormon 1 . But, says Gov. Bigler, the Constitution declares that "no religious teat shall ever be required as a qualification for oflice." True, but Gov. Bigler utterly fails to show that the Know Nothings ad vocate the adoption of a religious test as a quali fication for office.- So far as we. know anything about the organization, as wo have been able to gather it from the. public prints, they . expressly declare that it is their great object to leep religion out of politics. They merely say that "for certain reasons we will not voto for certain individuals." Now what are their reasons? -Why because "they are members of a church which we believe haa en tered th political arena and ia inimical to our in stitutions.'. Havo they not the tight it do this, under th Constitution? We do not thiol Gv. from them that high privilego of an American citizen !.'. But : he denounces them also, becausa he says they proscribo American citizens, for "an accident of birth," Well, we don't intend to defend them for this, but wo would merely call Gov. Bigler's at tention to the opinion of Tuos. Jbffersox on this subject, -whoso orthodoxy, we presume, no Demo crat will doubt, which he will find in his "YoetS o?i the State of nrgi'iiir'," pago 69. It i3 as fol lows: "Every species of government has its specific principles. Ours perhaps are more peculiar than any other in the universe. It is a composition of the freest principles of the English constitution, with others derived from natural right, and natu ral reason. lo tneso nothing can be more oppos ed than tho maxims of absolute monarchies. Vet rrom sack we are to expect tho greatest number of fc.UlGKAiUS. They . will brine, with them the principles imbibed in their youth ; or, if able to tnrow mem on. it wilt be in exchange for on un bounded licentiousness, passing, as usual, from one extreme to the other. These principles with their Language," they will transnit to their children. In proportion to their numbers, they will share with us in the legislation. : They will infuse into it their spirit, wurp and bias its directions, and render it a HETEROGENEOUS, IKCOIIEKKNT, AND D1STE.ACTED . MAS." . But this organization also find its principles en dorsed by the Father of- his Country. Washing ton says :; : ' . ': . "Against tho insiduous wiles of Foreign Influ ence, the jeaousey of a free people oinrht to bo constantly awako. IT IS ONI Of Tlffc MOST BAXEFL-L FOES OF A REPUBLICAN GOV ERNMENT." . : But admitting that "Know NothingUm" is tho monster which Gov. Ligler and his parly rcprescn it, to whom docs it owe its origin ? Why, to Gov. Bigler himself. He is its very god-father in Penn sylvania. Yeft, verily, "he conceived and brought it forth," by the appointment of James Campboll Attorney General! It was the hostility to that ap pointment, in tho rank3 of Gov. Bigler's own par ty, that originated "Know Nothingism" ia Penn sylvania. And now Gov. Eigler would disown his offspring! He would denounce tho produc tion of his own party, for tnoro than cue third of the democratic party of . tho State are members of that Order, as .will be proven by the result of ihe election! It is Democratic in its origin, democrat ic in its features, democratic in its workings.and one of the fe iff good consequences that have resulted from Pigler's Administration. But this talk of "violating the constitution" comes with a very bad grace from Gov. Bigler, a3 the exponent of 1'emocrcy in its modern 6ecso.' A party that cou'.d violate one of its most sacrod compromises, which was formed upon the ordinance of 1737, as framed by the authors of that sacred instrument themselves, should have very little to say about iLs violation by others. By the way, Gov. Bigler in his vituperation against tho Know Nothings, very singularly, as wc may suppose, has entirely overlooked this all absorbing qnestion. and prominent issuo of this campaign. He has not one word to say on the Nebraska Hill, though hia party acknowledge itasono of the most prom inent features of this contest.' If it is not, why did they pump, the candidato for Congress in this district for some two hours, on the question, and then succeeded in getting nothing out of him. As usual, Gov. Bigler, has 'dodged' it, well knowing that as the hea l of tho party ia Pennsylvania, he j must support the leading measure of tho Admin istration if ho comes out on the question at all, and yet fully aware of its unpopularity. Dut he cannot escape in that way. lis is tho Nebraska can didate, and cau bo regarded in no other light? He rcaat thoreforo boar the burthen which Pierce, Douglass t Co., have east npon his thonlders. If ho is elected, it will he claimed r.s a Nebraska vic tory as an endorsement of tho present weak, in efficient, and corrupt national administration. He is insepcrably linked with them, and 'dodging the question won't release him. Ho may bs ashamed of it. and no doubt is,but he had the power, when th resolutions on the subject wore before our Legislature, to hive prevented its passage, and failed to use it. For this sin of omijfion ho must now bear tho responsibility. - Oar articlo is already longer than wo intended, and we aro compcllod, from want of room, to. cut it short. Gov. Biglor's address is a Ingthy docu ment, and requires a long article to give it even a cursory review. Wo advise our friondj all to read it, as it will servo as a modal electioneering document, should any of them have occasion to use one. It is a most pittiful begging for votes, that must disgust every inlependant reader. Iu the language of tho Sun, it reminds us, froru its .spe cial pleading and ingenious sophisms, of the speeches made when the judge asks a man what he has to say why sentence of death should not bo pronounced upon Li m "A FEW "WORDS TO THE THINKING AND JBDICI0I73 V0TEB3 or PENNSYLVANIA." ; The locofoco leaders of the Campaign have issued a hundred thousand copies of a pamph let under the above "title, containing tho false and contemptible articles, originally publish ed in tho -Pennsijlcanian, about the "Know Nothings," and malicious attacks on Judge Pollock. Theso documents, franked by tho public officers at ILui isburg, have been secret ly distributed all over the State, and our own county is fairly flooded with them. But their labor has been in vain, for no man of ordina ry intelligence, can read it, aid give it the least degree of credit. It is a collection of base slanders and malicious lies, that found their origin in the prolific imagination of the hired slanderer who presides over the columns of the drivelling Pennylcanian. : The only thing they havo been able tosay against Judge Pollock, and which this pamph let re-echoes, is that he belongs to tho Knov Nothings." ' Against his character as a man, acitizen, and a statesman, they havo netdividual who sought to use thafPubltc Work," yot been able to say one word. He represcnT?j i cd his District in Congress, during throe ex citing sessions, aud in all that time there is not a single vote, speech or 'act with which they have found fault. ,Thcy have searched and re-searched, but in every instance they found him right upon the record. Unable, then, to say anything else, they make the foolish and absurd charge that he is a "Know Noth- mg." - . This charge is scarcely worth contradiction, for if it be true, it is no objection to Judge Pollock, or any other man, as : we understand this secret organization from all we have been able to learn on the subject. If ho as a mem ber, wq have only to say, he seems to have good company, and plenty of it. But wheth er he is a member or not, if he stands before the peoplo a high minded and honorablo man, capable of discharging the duties of the office, of projecting the interests of th. Common- j w ealth, iu favor of the Sale of the . Public Works.opposed to the extension ofSfa very over free territory, and. thV candidate of Freedom, Retrenchment, - Economy, and Reform, he should be supported by every true Pennsylva nian, who has at heart tho best interests of his Native State' r-.;: Rally then around the standard 6t v JAMES POLLOCK, whose intelligence, fidelity, and availability, whose long public services, patri otism and experience, eminently fit him to preside over the affairs of our noble old Com monwealth. Support him as the AMERICAN CANDIDATE, and rest assured his , election will be an AMERICAN VICTORY. L , , - - ,.-. THE STU.nPEIlS. -. The Locofoco leaders here have determined to stump the County. Accordingly all hands have set to work at the bellows, - and the way they make wind Is a caution to all outsiders. : The performance commenced at tho Mount Joy School House on Saturd-ty night, a descrip tion of which, will be found in another column. Tho ball opened by reading thcAppeal of Gov.. Bigler, which we understand required the uni ted exertions of the whole 'trio' to get through with. R. J. Wallace,'a veteran of sixteen sum mers," then proceeded to enlighten the good people-of that region on the principles of de mocracy, by repeating the stale assertion that one of the whig speakers on Court Week, pro nounced "popular Sovereignty" a ''magnitl ccnt humbug." As Robert has been assisting the 'Corporal' in his laborious search after the "Know-Nothings," wc must make due allow ance for the elasticity of his imagination, to the exuberonce of which, we must credit the assertion. Master Robert is a young gentle raan in whom wo feel great interest, and we a-e sorry to sec him waste -the time lie should be devoting to Blackstone in dictating to bis elders how they should vote-at the comming election. . This precocious youth was followed by the renowned 'Corporal,' whoso wind 'apparatus was in excellent . order, but for some time- it was difficult to tell which end was in 'operation. The 'Corporal' Mowed away at a terrible rate, and fears were entertained for the safety of the building. He was ridirig his great hobby; th-j "Know-Nothings," and it is said ho was per fectly at borne on the sulject. His speech was conclusive evidence thus he ought .to un derstand them. lie wa3 initiated ft birth; ' The 'Corporal' took his seat amidst tho most uprorious applause, and was followed by the IIon.'G. R, Barn-t, who, in his usual style, ripped away at tho "Know-Nothiugs," until some of his hearers feared that there would be a '.vpontaneons 'combustion." The "Ioarnod Judge" answered very-well for a 'stomach' pump' during Court week, and in all probabil ity, a.s was suggested by.one of his Democratic hearers, he would answer equally as wtll for a "gasometer." They might use hiin ia lic-u of gus-works, when they get the R.diiu.id. .With the Judge's speech the 'fizzle ended at Mount Joy. On Monday evening another 'bust up' was had at Centre School I!ci;se'. There were sorno thirty or forty persons r.resatit, about two thirds of whom won Whigs and Natives. The party' had received an addition in the per son of a Mr. Sacketts, who' made tho astound ing discovery that "Americans was born with monarchical instincts, and furv;gi;crs with Democratic or republican instincts!" Verily, wo hope h-j'l! go over the whole county. The "learned Judge" was replaced by Mr. J.B.McEnaliy who enlightened thaunterrfifed' of that region on tho United States Dank, etc. Th3"Corporal" then attempted to"l!ow out," Lnt h:s comicalities took the audience by Horni, and the loud noise from hi3 wind apparatus, was entirely drowned in the cri -s, hisses and yells of the crowd. The audience had already heard a history of tho adventures of this sec ond Don Quixotto De'La Mancha, nnd of ;hi.H Squire Robert, through the alleys, lanes, and (isoft places" ia search of tho "Know-Nothings," and their uprorious reception so dis comfited the 'Corporal' that he "backed wa ter," and retreated. ' The meeting adjourned, and a Native meeting was announced for the next evening, at the same place. . Wo understand it is tho intention of this 'splendid troupe' of performers, to give exhi bitions in every township in the county. We advise "all the world aud the rest of mankind "if they have an opportunity, not to fail see iug the "Mvr.ley Show." ' .'( .' : TO DEMOCRATS. Democrats remember that Gov. Bigler ap pointed JAMES CAMPBELL his Attorney General, and subsequently used his influence to have him raised to a seat in the Cabinet of President Pierce, after YOU, by your votes, had repudiated and rejected him.". Remember that Gov. Bigler was elected as the great opponant of Banks and monopolies, and that while he vetoed somo bank bills, "ho approved othors exactly similar in their pro visions. Remember that a contract was entered into with Messrs. Bingham & Dock, by which they were granted the exclusive privilege of carry ing passengers over tho Columbia Railroad,1 while tho cars of every other company or in- were driven from the ro id ! Remember that Gov. Bigl-r in hia conduct and appointments, has truckled to tho influ ence of a particular Sect, thus dragging Re liOou into Politics, which he professes so much ftrdeprecate. In proof of this wc refer to tho appointment of James Campbell, of the Lazzaretto Physician at Philadelphia, and of the Flour Inspector at Pittsburg. Remember that Gov. Bigler has abused the pardoning power, and has turned looso felon after felon, notwithstanding they had been convicted after long, arduous, and extended trials, and were sentenced by the Court, thus usurping the prerogatives of the Judge and Jury ! In proof of this we point to the pardon of Alberti tho notorious Kidnapper, to the Chester County prize-fighters, to the two fold pardon of Copenhaver of Huntingdon, to the Alleghany Conspiritora, to Lachononr of Eaa. ton, and a hnt of others, equally notorious. Biltlew'-oTdiiT readers have not heard , since the commencement "of this campaign . and be fore It, Native Americanism, and Know-Noth-ingism, denounced as a "Whig Gull Trap This h been ; the constant cry ofLocofoco fism throughout the( whole .contest. They knew that the-1 Whig party svaa ' the. only great Amesica.v party of the country, and that con sequently, some of its tenets and principles bore a slight reicmblancc to the doctr incs professed by tho Natives, and they seized hold of this hobby for the purpose of securing the catholic and foreign vote, whilo they madeNativeAmericanism and Know-Nothing-ism, in more senses than one, -another step ping stone to power. In proof of this fact, one need only point to the Locofoco papers, every ouo of which, is taking especial pains to publish to the world a letter,' purporting to bo written by the Native candidate for Govenor, declaring that he will not decline. In addition to this, the Lo cofoco leaders are buisily engaged distribu ting Bradford tickets in all tho disaffected districts in the county !' Docs this resemble a "nidgGull Trap." And what is their object? Why simply to prevent the dissatisfied demo crats from voting for POLLOCK, and to get as many Whigs as possible to vote for Brad ford! They well know that every democratic vote for Bradford is one saved to Bigler, and every "Whig vcte thus cast, ia' one' lost' to POLLOCK. ' ' "' But it is not only a Locofoco "gull-trap" in this respect. The democrat.? who have all along I-en loudly professing Nativeism, arc new turning traitor to the Whigs whom they keve succeeded in draving into th:ir rrnks, r.nd are going- bade, 'body and breeches' to Bigler, just as -we predicted they would, from the begin ning. -This is not a racro naked a.s?rtion,but we can PROVE it, by the most conclusive ev idence', and the Locofoco loaders arc glonfi-ng over it on the street confers. Latt week, they reccived a letter from ono of the former Na tive. American leaders in ' Bradford township, who, to prove his allegiance to the Locofoco party, 'betrayed his brethern with a kiss, and exposed to the wircworkers hero all the pri-privat-j ; movements an 1 disign3 of the party with which he had been acting! Now will-any whig permit himself to be thus bamboozled out of his vote? And what is to Ix! thought of a'party:;who will stoop to the use of such means to ride : tato ofiiw ? With one hand they are holding out tho bait to Cath olics and foreigner, and with tho other dis tributing Bradford tickets! Any and every means to -accomplish thoir designs. Thera is uothingj however low and con'emptible , to which they will not stoop for success. Will Whigs and ' true. Native Americans permit themse-Ws to ho thus hembugged. Let tbcm answer at the ballot box. I - ., JUDOi; POLLOCK. . . . Asa profound , lawyer, reliable statesmen, eloquent ypcikcr, and Mcccriplished gentle man, Judgo Pollock is witbont s'Tvcrjcr in Pennsylvania. He is a strong minded, vigor ous, and forcible writer, a.practical and tlo iu:it speaker, a. patriotic and true-hearted Pcnnsylvacian. Of bis um-xcjpticnible pri vate character and moral worth, lo better evi dence can be given t'lan the fact that when a candidate for congress, he revolutionized his district three consecutive times, receiving the almost; unanimous votj cf his friends . aud neighbors. Dming tw three ':s..;or.s hi 'sefrci in con gress, the Mexican War waV in progress, aad ether i-xciting and important topics wera be fore that body, yet, though ; or.r:advcrs.iries have patiently searched the records tiric and again, not a single act, voret orspcech can be pointed to with nbich ' tho least fault can be found. 'He sttnds right' upon the record, and all their ingenuity aiid sophistry 'haa thus far utterly fnil'.-d to place him in an unfair light on any 'question r.ron which he wes" called to act during his public lifel" : such is ihe candidate presented to tho p?o- plo oi Pennsylvania fir their MiftYages at ihe coming election. A man whom they ' can ell support, with tho utmost .confidence in his in tegrity, intelligence, and ability; to make an 'able and ufScient Chief Magistrate.. v LOOKOUT FORIT. . . We understand the Locofoco leaders hen aro getting up what purports to be an exposi. tionof the "Know-Nothings," with a list of the names of those persons7 in this town and vicinity, whom they believe to belong to them. Remember that it is on tho eve of the election, and that it will, perhaps, be impossible to con tradict what they may say. We believe "Know Nothingism" to be a Locofoco gull-trap, and one of tho means by which they make it effec tive is by representing its members to consist of Whigs. Remember that the Whig party have no alliance with "Know-Nothingism" whether it be good, bad, or indifferent, and that our candidates stand upon the good old plat form, on which we fought wider a ILvhkison, a Taylor and a Scott. ' We are the advocates now as ever, of -the restriction of slavery within its present limits, of tho Sale of the public works, of Retrenchment and Reform in all tho departments of the G overnment, aud of the Common School System in its present form, without alteration or addition. If these are the principles of the Catholics and foreign born citizens they can vote for our candidates. If they are the principles of the Know-Nothing, they can vote for them. But they are the principles of the groat AMERICAN WHIG PARTY, and no man who has ever enlisted under its banner will refuse to sustain them. .

Tho Governor and his friends aro boasting of his spirited conduct in the case rf McCreary, the kidnapper!.' ' ' '" - "Mark how a plain t ile puts them down." Rachel Parker, a free borne citizen of Penn sylvania, was kidnapped by certain Baltimore slave-dealers,' hurried oil" to that city, and thrust iuto a slave pen.; Several citizons of ": tho vicinity went to Maryland, in pursuit of. the stolen girl, and gave testimony in Balti more to the effect that she was free and had ' been kidnapped: of which one of their fc'iinbeiy : Joseph Miller, a respectable citizen of Chester county, was brutally murdered before he left Maryland. Thomas McCreary, of Baltimore ' a notorious scoundrel, who had for years been : committing .depredations o:i .Pennsylvania soil and escaping into Maryland for Bafety, was afterwards indicted by a Chester ' county Grand Jury;"-and this (rue; bill was taken to -Govenor Bigler, and he was called upon to do .: his duty and bring the wretch to trial, but Mai duty was never discharged. - It is true he made tho requisition on the Governor of Maryland. which his duty as a public oflicer compelled , him to do; but Gov. Lowe, in defiance of our constitutional right?, refused to deliver up the criminal. Thereupon, Gov. . Bigler writes Gov. Lowe a letter, and there the matter drops; . and McCreary walks abroad unpunished for .; his crimes. At this open and almost unprece dented insult to our State, does the Gover nor show a proper degree of spirit, or does lioi." meanly truckle to an outside iniluencel". He tamely pockets the insult, and permits this Jesuit Governor of Maryland to trample on our constitutional rights, without another word, : eve-n of remonstrance, on Uu. subject...., His next message after the outrage passes over the subject in silence, as unworthy of attention. But ho did more than tamely submit. As if to show his subserviency to slavery, and his disregard for the rights of the Common wealth, the very next Legislature, overflowing with Bigler's friends, passed a rcsolntion, in viting this same abettor of crime, this Lowe, and other Stato cflScers, to visit Ilarrisburg as tho honored guests of the State. Tho invita tion was accepted, and' tho Maryland slave holders, who may have thought hard of Peon- -sylvaniana for asking the surrender of a man as a criminal, when ho was only a kidnapper, were conciliated at an expense to the tax-pay- ' era of this State, of something like six thousand dollar. That is a specimen of the manner in which Gov. Bigler has maintained the boner aud dlgcitv of the State. Share, whre Is fhvhMnhiMrend'nfXl'hig:.:
