Read voters read Perior Coral stove a special address of Thi democratic Central committee to the people of Pennsylvania. Fellow citizens for the Honor and dignity of our Commonwealth it was to Hare been hoped and believed gubernatorial Campaign i this state would be conducted by both parties on principles of Candor and 111 a manner which would comport with the character of a Liberal and enlightened people. The moral sense of the Community having so repeatedly placed the Seal of its unequivocal condemnation on that reckless sys tem of personal abuse and denunciation which has characterized so Many of our past political struggles the fond Hope became to be almost universally cherished that the present conflict at least would exhibit none of that Gross departure from the rules of decency and propriety. So far of regards the course of the democratic presses towards the candidate of the Federal party John we believe we can safely de Clare these of a whole some Reform in political warfare have been fully realized. Whilst they hive scrutinized with becoming fear be Ness the tenets avowed by him and endeavoured Faith Lully to illustrate their pernicious re they have studiously refrained irom committing Over assaults upon his personal character or attempting to deprive him of the full Benefit of an unimpaired private reputation. They Hare to invent charges that have no foundation in fact nor have they condescended to impute such High crimes and misdemeanours to him As an Only committed by the most abandoned of the human race. This is a proud testimonial of the ,, the Liberal Ity the , am the of the democratic press and would if uni Vei silly adopted soon free our political conflicts of that Gross personal asperity and omd activeness which is so justly tie by word and reproach of the an or i an people. On the other hand we Hare observe Vith poignant regret that the opponents of David r. Porter after a fee ble attempt at moral Reform in the outset of the Campaign Are again giving Loose to he reins of Low and person Al invective and Are actively engaged in the task of inventing and circulating every species of calumny against his private character. His Public acts be ing above assault they vainly Emagine that his private reputation will prove less impregnable. The miserable Stone breaker and Peg Beaty calumnies con Cec Cal by i a Man in i838j Nav. Ing hopelessly exploded necessity con them to have resort to a new Jenes of falsehood in order to distort the truth accumulate the lie and Pyramid of one of the new series is the foul and loathsome calumny now and to some time passed promulgated by the that governor Porter is habitually this Infa "iou.5 libel was at Only verbally throughout the state by a gang unprincipled men. Especially employed and paid for the purpose ii was mostly uttered Only by Fly inn undo and Seldom in a manner Bodi to that its debated retailers could be amenable for their wickedness. However the nature of depravity bolder As it grows older so those ederal alumni actors have advanced a Tep in their profligate career and now As we do on the threshold of reelection they do not hesitate to utterance to the slander openly _ s a Federal paper devoted to judge is published at Washington pa., the under Date of he Isth instant publishes the product of an alleged correspondent at Rea in which we the following Porter has been travelling through Berks and Schuylkill electioneering. He came to this place Reading on Friday night last so drunk that he had to be led into the tavern what think his Tempe Arice friends of such a Man what a contrast to John this is beyond doubt but part and parcel of a systematized scheme to circulate this libel on the chief magistrate of our slate industriously through every county the democratic Central committee have deemed it a part of their duty to confront it As they now must emphatically do with a full explicit unqualified denial. We whose names Are Hereunto subscribed Are All residents of Harrisburg and enjoy an almost daily Intercourse with govern or Porter. We do therefore from knowledge thus derived pronounce thie and All similar assaults upon his private character a vile disreputable and atrocious calumny which is utterly and wholly devoid of that essential Quality truth. We do pledge our Honor As men for the correctness of the allegation Here by unequivocally declare that we know David k. Porter to be among the most abstemious men in Harris Burg which will be most readily Asser Ted Toby every respectable citizen in the town who stands himself unconnected with the vile slander. In relation to the particular charge embraced in the above we will most readily Appeal to the citizens of Reading Opall ties whether it is not As Gross a calumny As has Ever been conceived by depravity itself. That they will forgetting the distinctions of party and mindful of the respect due the highest officer in the Republic come Forward in Matse and pronounce in a vile fabrication we have every Rea son to believe. This Strong emphatic and unequivocal denial Ofa most prof Ligate and abandoned falsehood will we Trust set this matter at rest and effectually Rescue the fair Fame of our chief magistrate from being ruthlessly destroyed by a band of affiliated libel lers and slanderers. Another imputation which the same men Are assiduously seeking to Lay to the charge of governor Porter is the one that he has in his official capacity accepted a bribe from the United states Bank of the Gross and obvious Absurdity of this charge Well justify the friends of the executive to treat it with silent and indignant contempt. The committee can scarcely determine whether to become exasperated at its extraordinary wickedness or to laugh at its supreme Folly. In order however to leave the enemies of governor Porter an Inch of ground up on which to rest their fulcrum we will meet it at once fully and fairly. We do not by pronouncing it in the most positive terms that the English Lan Guage is capable of conveying a wicked and diabolical falsehood destitute of even a Shadow of truth. We meet it by declaring that on the authority of governor Porter himself that he never in his whole Lif Tirre either As a Orvale citizen or since he has been governor received a solitary cent from the Bank of the United states or from any person having any connection Wilh it As president cashier director or other officer or agent either directly or indirectly for his private Benefit or advantage or for that of any other per son or hat he never owned a Dollar s Worth of Stock in said Bank and does not own a single share of Stock in any Bank in the his name has never been before the Bank of Theu. S. As Orin any other manner or shape we hate he never had in his Possession even a Check upon that Bank or his foot within its Walls at any time in his whole we meet it further by challenging his Federal opponents thus openly to adduce an Iota of proof to sustain their allegation. The proof is All in their own hands if there be any in the world and Why do they not adduce it the Bank was chartered by the enemies of governor Porter conducted by them and is now exclusively in their hands they alone can have the proof in their Possession if it exists any where. The that they have not d Abed to venture even upon the attempt to support the charge by of itself a considered by All honorable men a triumphant refutation of the Ca Lumny. But for what should gov. Porter accept a bribe from the u. States Bank has he Ever rendered it a favor be i on the contrary he has veto time and again innumerable Bills that were designed for its immediate Bene fit and for these very vetoes he is bit Terly denounced. He has been during his entire political career its uncompromising adversary which is conclusively evinced by the fact that All the men who re chartered it and Are yet connected with it Are opposed to his re election and support the pretensions of John Banks. Deeming this at ample and sufficient reply to these foul charges we leave it to the discretion and intelligence of the people to pronounce upon them in october next the sentence of their condemnation the same As they did upon a variety of Sim Ilar slanders during the memorial conflict of 1838. In conclusion we derive pleasure from being Able to congratulate our democratic fell few labourers throughout the state that the prospects of the pre sent Campaign Are so eminently auspicious. Information derived from the most authentic sources such As we can not possibly be deceived in leave no doubt of the re election of d r. Por Ter by a majority which will certainly reach and May exceed 000 votes. The democracy of the Keystone of the Arch seem to be inspired by the laudable determination that their Brethren in Indiana Alabama Tennessee Maine and Vermont shall not be left alone in their they too intend in a few weeks to return the grateful shouts of Triumph and will once More enjoy the proud satisfaction of seeing the political Escutcheon of Gallant old and purified from the stain of Federal ism. Henry Buehler Reily a. V. Parsons Jacob Seiler we. D. Boas Benj. Parke j. B. Bratton e. W. H utter Jacob Baab Michael Burke Harrisburg sep. 24, 1841. Is proper to stale that the letter from the Hon. Henry a. Muhlenberg and others was received alter the address of the Central committee was written and in Type and that will account for the Rea son Why those Gentl Ernen did not Al Lude to it. The subjoined is the letter alluded to above sept. 23d, to Hent , Esq. Chairman if the dem. Central committee. Letter purporting to be writ ten from this place appeared in a paper called the Washington of the 18th september which said Lel Tei asserted positively that upon the occasion of governor Porter s recent visit to Reading he gov. Porter was so drunk that he had to be led into the now we the undersigned witnessed gov. Porter s arrival and we were with him the Grea Ter part of the few hours he remained Here. We therefore feel ourselves called upon not to suffer so base a slander to go a contradicted. We As Sert boldly and without the least Hesi tation or fear of contradiction that the above charge is totally and utterly and that there is not even the Shadow of a foundation upon which it can rest. Nor is this opinion based upon hearsay but we know our Asser Tion to be what we personally saw and heard. We again repeat that the charge is totally and utterly false. We remain yours Henry Al. Muhlenberg John Green Elijah Dechert s. M. Barr Andrew m. Sallade Henry Al. Muhlenberg or. We. Wunder we. Betz Henry w. Smith we. Arnold John y. Cunnius. A Able judge was once obliged to deliver the following charge to the grand jury gentlemen of the jury in this Case the counsel on both sides Are uni Tel Gible the witnesses on both sides incredible and the plaintiff and the defendant Are both such characters that to me it is indifferent which Way you give your correspondence of the american Sentinel. Election one of the most Active intelligent and influential democrats in the Interi or of the state writes to us As follows election is close at hand and the people Areu Ery Little excited and Fiorin this both parties augur you know i have never been mistaken in the result of an election for governor Inthis Sla the. I never suffer my parti feelings to get the better j of my judgment and my judgment regulated by information received from sources in which i can confide. With All the prominent democrats in the state with All i am personally acquainted and to them i Appeal for a candid development of the situation of affairs in their respective counties. By them i have never been deceived. In the present instance have full Confidence in answer to various letters written by by me that no deception has been Practised by my correspondents and if so i am not deceiving you in stating that d. R. Porter will assuredly be elec Ted by a majority of not less than 000, and it May exceed the in excited stat of Public feeling augurs any thing but success1 to the whig party. Whenever the people Are dissatisfied with their rulers that Dis satisfaction manifests itself always in the most palpable manner. No Man can mistake the indications Ofa determination to overthrow the Powers that be symptoms of discontent May be heard from every Farmer at his plough of every Mechanic in his shop. The apparent indifference that so universally regard to he elec Tion is a Strong evidence that the great mass of the people Are perfectly Satis fied and contented with the acts of their chief magistrate. If in his measures they found anything worthy of condemnation the mighty efforts Nada by the whigs and anti masonic editors in the Interior to raise an excitement would not have proved so entirely revolutions Are never brought about without casting a dark and frowning Shadow before to revolutionize Pennsylvania last fall it Cost the whigs a mighty amount of uproarious Coil Ven tonal of ing of trumpets and a vast amount of Money and withal they had but a majority of the abolition vote to majority at All. The Patron r age of the United Stales government constituted no Small item in the list of objections a vast number of persons had to or. Van Buren s re election. To grasp the spoils More was promised than has been performed. The times instead of having improved Are much worse than they were one year ago and in connection with this palpable fact the declaration of or. Clay that the Compromise act must be invaded or Coffee. Tea taxed at the next meet ing of Congress you can easily judge the probability of the whig and anti masonic vote being any thing like what in was last year the Farmer me chanic and labourer Are aware that in Stead of diminishing the liabilities of the United states government the whigs have increased them and instead of reducing annual expenses of the government they have increased them to at least two millions a year for the next four years making in the aggregate eight Small amount when taxation has to be resorted to in order to make up the deficiency arising out of the extravagance of congressional appropriations. The non performance of the lavish and unlimited promises made by the whigs has done More to destroy that party than a thousand veto messages could possibly have affected. The delusion of better times has passed est men have discovered that the whigs i mean the leading whigs battled Lor the of office and not for the com Mon Good of tie country. The result of the late elections in other states is a fair criterion to judge Pennsylvania by. The astonishing revolution of opinion in Maine has not surprised me and to Surprise any reflecting Man. Like causes always produce like effects. Pennsylvania will at the ensuing election give such a democratic majority As Wil astonish Friend and foe. She is thoroughly years will pass away before another defeat of a democratic candidate for president and governor can take place unless the party should Divide As in 1836. I might enumerate Many counties in which vast changes favourable to democracy have taken place since this time ast year but to do so would spin our my letter to an unwarrantable length. To be Brief on that May rest assured that in every county revert oni governor Porter s vote will be much larger than or. Van by and John Banks will be below general Harrison s. I wish you to Bear this prediction in mind and when the election Over if you find i have deceived you set me Down As having for the first time been deceived my self. I am truly through the Valley and the of death yet will i not Leape it i be not and we hive the satisfaction of knowing it is All sufficient. The Eye is Hope beyond the grave. The immortal part has winged its Way to the spirit land. Of May i Ever Call to mind these words of our blessed Saviour it is not and i think i May Bear the ills of life and the approach of death without a m murmur. The prospects of the election of gov. Porter appear to be brightening every Day. The democrats Are every where preparing to give him a vigorous sup port whilst it is evident that the whigs Are divided and disheartened. In Sev eral important counties As for example in Allegheny Cumberland Dauphin and Erie great dissatisfaction prevails among them and new tickets for the legislature will probably be in Allegheny the old controversy be tween the Anli masons and the friends of or. Clay has been revived and is carried on with great bitterness so much so that the democrats Are not without Hopes of carrying their ticket. The movement Here in favor to or Clay will add fuel to the flame already raging there. Domestic colloquy. When is that Relief coming father which you talked so much about when you came Back from the Syra Cuse very soon my soon As the distribution Bill and what is that distribution Bill a i declare Janette How inquisitive it is a scheme designed to take the Money out of the Treasury to give it to the How Nice that will be shall we get to be sure we shall that is to say indirectly Shan t we get any in our own hands shiny stuff that Uncle Joseph Calls no child not Well father How much shall we get As you Call Why love we shall yes we shall get May be a Quarter of a Only two shillings father. Why you gave a Hundred dollars to get them Loafer looking Fellows to Hunt Coons go to conventions and to vote in a Good Many go to your a dear a is be not there is not a passage More emphatic and at the same time More cheering and comforting to the afflicted soul than this. I the hour of trial when the Clouds of adversity Darken our path and there appears not one Ray of Light to guide our Steps when the tempest roars and death grim tyrant s Tares in the face then it is that this sub Lime and soothing passage comes with All its Force. And calms the troubled soul. What a Blessing these words com fort have been to Mankind Ever since they were uttered by our Saviour the child when in the dark hears a foot step approach its Little heart beats fas Ter but the Mother s voice Falls upon the is i love be not and All is peace in the infant s bosom of is it not Beautiful to contemplate the child s Reliance on its Mother but infinitely More so to see the Young leaning with that same Reliance on the bosom of their Saviour. And when sick Ness comes with its withering Light and the Mother sits beside the Cradle of her idolized child watching for the last breath yet hoping praying such As that agonized Mother pours Forth none but those who have suffered can that god will hear and spare her child. Suddenly it gasps it breathes once More and All is Over and that wretched Mother sits almost distracted. In her despair she cries my child my has taken it from me it not mine own but a Light Breaks in upon her Ana a voice Whis thy child is not dead but sleep eth it is i be not again we Kneel beside the death bed of the loved one and Ever and anon a Shade of doubt and anxiety passes Over the Pale face As the Shadow of death Falls upon like the Mariner tossed upon the Ocean without com pass or guiding Star so is the loved one until we Rouse the scattered sen ses by whispering the blessed ass Ranee of our Saviour though you the spirit of investigation is abroad. It is a Noble one and it should be encouraged. It was it that stirred with Columbus when he went in search of a new world it was it that moved the Phy Josoph Mcmind of Franklin when he made subservient to his will heaven s lightning it promoted Arkwright to make his successful Experiment in machinery and buoy up the mind of Fulton till he completed the steam engine. We receive our neighbor of the advertiser does not mean to let the laudable feeling lie dormant from cer Tain queries he propounded in his paper of yesterday but we fear he has plunged too deeply into the subject a the set he should Lead the mind into the Depths of his subject by Sto Len paces As it were instead of forced he should gently draw them on by s Silken string and not Asho has done drag their into the vortex of chemistry by tying a Ofa Steamboat round their body. But we will remedy his error by offering the following less less abstruse propositions for the exer Cise of their investigative faculties Why Are rats More obtrusive and less timorous after a Shower than be fore it 1 Why do some prefer a pig and whistle in a morning to a pumpkin what Quantity of wind would a sufficient to raise a balloon in a Calm a tolerably Well sized editor being stowed in the boat As ballast Why do ladies at the present Day Wear their sleeves Loose and their stays tight Are a plurality of shirts really antidote for the Yel of fever Why Are place Hunters the most Kariolic politicians submit a pot of Small potatoes to a chemical Analy nation and what Quantity of alcohol will you find in them was the Kink originally put in the pig s Tail to denote his obstinacy and crooked temper has science been benefited by the invention of wooden Nutmeg is tailor s cabbage an indigenous or exotic Plant does an editor with Money in his purse come within the Legal definition Ofa suspicious character or can a Man who voluntarily and of his own free will become an editor be pronounced of sane mind we some More questions of a like scientific a Are with the forego ing to ask our readers As soon As they Send us written replies to those already put to them. Picayune. Forgiveness. To err u human to forgive if there is anything which raises Man above his Fellows which even raises him himself and proves him to be Akin to heaven it is forgiveness to forgive an injury How it ennobled the Man. May decorate the exterior but the Bubles which it Pur chases Are but empty toys glory May encircle the brow with a Victor s Wreath but its leaves must fade Orch nge to thorns but forgiveness the Meek and gentle spirit that can forgive a wrong is an ornament that must Shine with enduring splendor even after the shall have faded away. It is perfectly natural if any individual has injured us to desire to be revenged. But it is certainly god like after we have received an injury to Bear it in the spirit of weakness and submission and instead of retaliating of the individual who has injured us to f n Deavor by love and kindness to conciliate his feelings and govern our own. Nothing can to like the spirit of him who when he was reviled Rev Tud not again if then to possess Christ s spirit be no Honor we know not any.
