Jnatlce to Northern Pennsylvania I The tier of counties in our State run ning from the Delaware river to Lake Erie,con tains 45,000 or 50,000 voters, who havo acceded to them a candidate for Got ernor. Those counties have decided tbe elections of the State in many prior con tests, and will probably give in October over two to one for their own Wilmot. There is some sectional pride, aud a patri otic sense of right, in this prospect. Tbey claim that tbey have never had a Govern or, while all other portions of the Com monwealth have furnished several incum bents of the chair Gubernatorial, and tbey now Halt the same honor and favor for their own more secluded aud rapidly ex panding region. Sam'l M'Kcan was U.S. Senator from ltradford, Judge Laporte was Surveyor General, and Messrs. Read of Sueq. and Ball of Erie were State Treasurers ; but this is believed to be the full list of tbe higher offices accorded to the North I Their request is manly and just Be sides the earlier Governors from l'hiladel. aod vicinity, Tu. M'Kean aud Mifflin acrved tbat region by election for 13 years. Skydee and Shumk, from the main river Susquehanna, served 13 years. lllESTEB, from Lancaster Fi.ndi.ey, from West moreland SuilLTZE, from Lebanon, (af terwards living in Lycoming) two terms Wolfe, from Northampton, two terms Rit.ner, from Washington Porter, from the Juniata, twoteruis JoUNSTON, from the Allegheny, 4 years Kioler from Clearfield aud laslly POLLOCK. from Northumberland (both of the West Branch). ..ccrtaiuly, Eastern, Southern, Western, aud Central Pennsylvania have been well provided for. Snyder, Bigler, and Pollock were from the central part'of the State, which can not now claim the honor again, (for three West liranchcrs in succession would look decidedly loo "sectional.") Northern Pennsylvania the North Branch is entitled to re spectful recognition. The "favorite son" she presents, was born in Wayne, mar ried in Lebigb, studied law in Luzerne, and has represented in Congress, presided over as Judge, or practiced m k W 4 Wyoming, Susquehanna, Bradford, Sulli van, and Tioga counties. He would em phatically represent Northern Pennsylva nia, while his opponent would represent tbe West Branch region in general and tne ",veriasuug o-" r i We say in all candor and earnestness, tbe laboring masses of the North nearly all farmers are entitled to at least one Governor by the year 1858 ! Tbey are not rich, it is true ; they cultivate the soil where the blackened stumps of the prim itive forest still obstruct the plow ; and thousands of the real pioneers yet inhabit tbeir log cabins and humble dwellings. Tbey have toiled bard and long to con quer homes from the wilderness, and are beginning to realize the fruit of their la bors. They desire, before they go hence to be bere no more, to see tbe doctrines of the Declaration of Independence more fully established, and one of their own sons at the fouutain bead of power in the State. JuMice to Northern Pennsylvania would also be a matter of poftcy. Mostly of New England origin, tbeir business and social relations have hitherto been chiefly with New York State and city. Linking them more and more closely by official, favors and interests, would add to tbe strength of acquaintanceship and friendship, and altogether prove beneficial to Pennsylva nia generally aod especially to Philadel phia. Let as, then, be liberal as well as just, and yield to tbe citizens of the north ern counties their candidate for Governor. Ilia ability is undoubted, and bis fame b world-wide. Packer and Douglas. In bis speech at York, Gen. Packer is reported by bis friends to have taken the trouble to go out of the way far enough to have "paid a yhwiny tribute to tluit ditiitt guiihtd itatttman, Judye Dvvgltu." As Douglas is one prominent candidate for President, this may be considered com mittal of Packer in his favor. How about Utah. Since Mr. Dou glas made bis Springfield speech, be bas positively and precisely defined himself in bis own Chicago Tima of June 26tb,lS57. He says : "The inhabitants of Utah are Mormons. Polygamy or concubinage it a part of their Tttigiout faith. We do not believe that Con grea hat any more right to dictate to the people of Utah vpon the number cfwivet each man muyponett, than it hat todutttle to them the particular female each man shall marry. Congress has no right to say to the men of Utah tbat tbey shall bave but one wife, nor that tbey shall marry at all. Congress has no more power to dic tate bow often they aball wed, than it bas the power to dictate to the men of Illinois that tbey shall marry negroes." Be-In 1860,Dcmocrsey will be shield for Polygamy as it now is for Slavery. Mark the prediction! And Gen. Packer most then practically defend Polygamy as he oow does Slavery ! Mark that, too ! Polygamy and a Free Slavs Trade are to be tbe nt "p rogreaive" p!anka."J CO., PA., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1857. Flgtatliis; Preacher. "Churches or the Valley" is the title of a history of tbe Presbyterian chur ches in Cumberland Valley, (principally j in Cumberland and Fraukliu counties, I Pennsylvania,) by Rev. Dr. Alfred Ne j VIN, of Lancaster. Presbyterian congre- gatioos began to bo organized through the Valley from 1730 to 1740, but too little ! reliable information of tbeir first proceed- ings bas been obtained. We glean from it a few proofs of the manner in which I Presbyterian clergymen of that day as ' puie aud as earnest men as their successors "preached polities." Ilea. John King, D. D., of Merccrsburg, was second to none of bis Presbyterian ; brethren in arousing the spirit of liberty : among his countrymen, aud iu fostering j opposition to tbe tyrannical proceedings of . the Government. He not ouly volunteer- j ' ed his services, but went as chaplain to : tbe battalion which mached from tbat sec- j tion. Extracts are given, in the volume. I 1 before us, of patriotic addresses to bis ' neighbors a sermon on tbe death of Gen. j Montgomery a speech to Capt. llustou's ! j company as they were about to leave their , i homes for the battle-field, tie. j j llto. Ma CraiglscaJ, of Rocky Spring , I church, after preaching in glowing terms 1 Jesus Christ the only hope of salvation, exhorted the youth of the congregation, in ' eloquent and patriotio strains, to rise up : and join the noble band of settlers strug ! gliog against tbe regular army and the : border savages of Britain. Ou one occa- sioo, be declaimed in such burning terms ' upon the wrongs the people were enduring that after one earnest declaration of '.heir . ' duty the men of the congregation all arose ' from, tbeir scats and declared their willing-, : ncss to take up tbeir arms. Oue old lady, however, whose heart bled with a reccut wound, called out, : "Stop. Mr. Craighead I jist want to ' tell yer agin you loss such a purty boy as ; I have, in the war, ye will na be so keen j I for fighting : quit talking, and gang your- i self to tbe war. Yer always preaching to tbe boys about it, bat I dinna think ye'd be very likely to gang yersel. Jist go and j try it." He did go. Stauding before his meet-: ing bouse be calls on tbe able-bodied men of his flock to go with him to the field of battle, to save his country's libertv or ner-: isb in the cause. One by one they fall io, j until the line reaches across the green to ; the neighboring wood. Their wives.daugh-, ters, snd sisters urge them to trust in the ( arm of God. The line is completed, and j the r Juuiisses tocm to meet the fol-1 lowing Monday. They meet one fervent j appeal to the Almighty, and their Pastor becomes their Captain, and tbey march to join tbe army of Washington. He fougbt and preached alternately, and was as good . a soldier as a preacher. J Among Craighead's companions in war ; was Rev. Dr. Hubert Cooper, many years pastor of Middle Spring church. Both of 1 these men escaped many dangers, and "died in tbeir nests" at a good old age. j Jiev. John Elder, of Paztoo, was a Col- j onel io the army, and with tbe other Pres-: byterian ministers of that day preached up j opposition to Government, when Govern- j ment did wrong, and plead and fought for . Liberty, against Slavery. A Presbyterian j Tory clergymen was as rare as white black birds. "The General." Inquiries bave been made, "On tchat tamminaru field did Wm. F. Packer trin hit title f tchetlter in Revolutionary, British, Indian, M'jcican, Cuban or Kansai trart t or whether he it only a Militia hero f" From all tbe histories,both "national" and Statef I we can obtain, we can say tbat the General j never mounted his steed upon the "tented plain" where red Mars was in earnest j nor has be commanded even a brigade of j cornstalks and umbrellas amid tbe cheers of pea-nut, gingerbread, and smill-becr venders. His sword is a goose quill, and tbe stains upon it are ink instead of blood. Steuben and Ssott are not bis text-books wire-pulling being more congenial to his mode of warfare. His most gallant "charget" were as mudboss, supervisor, collector, Canal Commissioner, or Auditor General upon tbe State Treasury, from which, during a series of campaigns cover ing twenty years, he emerged victorious after many a closely contested and doubt ful fight. In desperate contests lor tbe people's money, General Backer has prov ed no cowardly soldier, as the rich trophies of himself, his brother, and his personal friends abundantly testify. His last and most brilliant display of tactics proving him to be a very Kabius in prudence was bis drawing out Judge Wilmot, and then bis masterly retreat through the mountain pass of Conimitteedom, whereby he saved bimsclf,(as did not bis vaunting prototype Goliab of Gatli,) and whereby also he is now able to discharge a fierce volley of words at a safe distance. As to any bodily barm lie has ever done to a Briton, a Mex ican, Filibuster, or Savage, be is as iioocett as tbe child auboro, bis boasted Quaker training keeping him clear of all such vanities ! - - When doing what is right, the heart is eay, and becomes better every day ; but when practicing deoeit, tbe mind labors, and every day becomes worse. Luther. Mingling OU wilh Water. Those Pro-Slavery New School Presby tciians who want a General Assembly in which "itulht'n'i tdtall be laid concerning" concubinage, separation of families, fl"g i ging of women, bounding of men, aud buying and gelling the flesh and bbod of their brothers by Adam and brethren in church fellowship, have held their scisma tic assemblage, at Richmond in Virginia. Their number was small, comprisirg dele gates from a part of the N. S. churches in a portion ouly of the Slave States. The principal conclusion arrived at was to form a ncworganizition,at Knoxv illc,and to toll cit a union icith die Old lyhoul Presbyte rian Assembly, as one wilh whom it is M likilu "nothing will be said about" the sins which make up what Wesley ; called "the sum of all villainies." (The J Mormons would be a decidedly surer j church in that particular, but they are too much addicted to the use of water ') j This is a doubtful compliment to the i O'.d School church, and the world will lock with interest to its action respecting ! this overture, at their session in New Or-1 leans, next year. It will be curious also ! j to sec how these New Schoolmen will lower I their distinctive standard, forget their past j grievance aud "excision," to ubtain,under j the Old School roof, a shelter from the : conscience-probing arrows of anti-slavery ; declarations. We see some indications of ; demurring to such questionable approaches of Dr. Ross, Col. Nethcrland, and tbeir j faction. On the other hand, tome will j esteem it a handsome swelling of their j ranks. Of this number doubtless will be i "Terpolis," a correspondent of the Pre- j byterian limner & Adcocate, who wrote from Washington, after a visit to the j White House iu March of last year, that j PresiJeut Pierce's "greetings were truly 1 cordial, lie expressed himself as much pleased with the A'ifiunaf ground taken by j our Old School church, touching tue , vexed Question of Slavery, oflirmintj it as , his belief that it was both Scriptural and j Cuiitittiiitunal. o tuauked uim lor we compliment."

After Backer had, thro' his "Committee," declined, the name of bis opponent should no more escape his lips, and all reference to him should be avoided on his part.

The degree of concentration requisite can be judged of by trial. A little of the syrup can from time to time be taken out and cooled. The boiling should be con tinued until the syrup becomes quite thick and ropy. It is yet a mooted point whe ther the syrup will crystalize by simply boiling down.
