Our former charges against them of wilful and corrupt vio- lation of official high handed a daring disregard of all law and morality, in order tore- elect Governor Ritner, remain un-an- swered; and we now re-assert that they dare not deny them. We'are prepared to prove them in a court justice to the letter; nay, many of the facts are stronger, and present the conduct of the commissioners in a more infamous point of view, than our charges. The testimony of the editor of the "Lycom- ing Eagle" is his statements can be corroborated by twcn-' ty witnesses. In addition tp the charges heretofore made public, we are 'now prepared to prove by testimony indubitable, that the work has Been allotted to political partizans, at vastly higher than the bids of as good contractors as can be found in Pennsylvania; who were the frtends of David R.

THE The question to be decided by the Democracy of Pennsylvania, at thecom- ing election, is not simply, whetlier DA- VID R. PORTER shall je the Governor for three years to como. It is true he has been selected as the head and repre- sentative ofthe democracy ofthe and is in every respect worthy of :the distinguished honor which har thuS been conferred upon him. He is one in whose firmness and spotless integrijn ty all may safely confide. Yet, in the" approaching contest.are involved prinp ci-ples of the highest moment, jfcottp. Pennsvlvania :alone, but tp the whole Uniohi! It is a contest, the result cjf which, will tell upon tie destiny of th'iis country in "future years. The great question to be decidec, is, whether the government shall again be administered upon the- sound republican principles inculcated and set forth by those who" it__01! whether it shall remain Is of corrupt rncl irresponsible agents, who bid open the( popular voice, and recognize no rule of nation, but their awn will. And- the. grand alternative is riow before the peo- ple.

They have but to rjityy under Iflie broad banner of de- mocracy, and give their undivided sup-' port to the Peoples candidate, and 'all' will be well. In.his former political career they have the brightest evidence, of his eminent qualifications to admp- ister the governmen. upon the whole- some principles of genuine" democracy.
