Fellow citizens approaching elec Tion for stale officers and for members of the legislature and representatives in Congress according to an honoured custom Calls upon the democratic Central committee of Pennsylvania to add a few words on the issues involved in the contest and on the general aspect of things through Jit the country. It has been Well Eaid that the democratic party of the country never Calar acl sleeping in the Glacier in occupied a higher or More enviable position than the Uhitil Shower folding Bright Snow curtains at the present time. Out of Power at Washy softly above the wintry world and weaving the in ton and at Harrisburg its measures have Many coloured Iris that seraph s zone of the sky nevertheless vindicated themselves by the most j porn causes the rapid whose Harp is the rain drop of Earth whose roof j triumphant while the general policy of and widely extending interests of our stale intended to be fulfilled have no regret now Bare that those who sided to defeat the democracy less than years ago should have Only been convinced1 of the faithlessness of those they then confided in by the Melan Choly failure at Washington to which we have referred. Have not the members of the great democratic party therefore profound cause for congratulation amid the general feeling which holds up to the imitation of our rulers the enlightened example of democratic administrations j it was under the impulse of such feelings As these that the democratic state convention which assembled Williamsport on the .29lh of May last placed in nomination the several candidates for state whose names Yoa find in scribed on All our banners. These candidates deserve the support of the people of Pennsylvania two of the officers to be voted for have just been made elective by the legis lature thus imposing an enlarged responsibility upon citizen in the discharge of his elective duties.

Remember if these feud Are left open ing and festering you May have whigs in your stale offices a whig United sales senator and a whig congressional delegation which in the event of the next presidential contest going into the House would throw the vote of democratic Pennsylvania against the demo cratic candidate. How utterly humiliated those will be who failing to exercise a disinterested spirit May Aid to give Victory to our adversaries and who in the hour of democratic defeat May be held justly accountable for the fatal consequences we again invoke our political Bre Thren to exercise All prudence and in Voke All candidates to remember that the cause is higher than Mere if our counsels shall be heeded we May look Forward to a.

With such blundering awkwardness is to exact even from the representative of that foreign nation which sympathies most with federalism the remark that it was weak and a Silica need never Tell me again that Back woodsmen Are deaf to the divine voice of Elo Quence for i saw at that moment the missionary held the hearts of multitude As it were in the hollow of his hand and the popular feeling ran in a current so irresistible that even the due list Watt Foeman dared not venture another interruption during the meeting.

A decided vote including several Independent whigs rebuked the Regency that had supported the claim and had agreed to its payment in terms of the severest reprehension. The Regency left office amid general execration of their conduct and at a moment when other developments were about to be made proving still further their unfitness to conduct the affairs of a Republican govern ment.

Whig president at first entirely overlooks Pennsylvania in his Choice of Cabinet officers and confers the Treasury upon Corwin whose opposition to the same War was so bitter and so uncompromising that Mexico elevated him into one of her household gods and the american soldiers Burnt him in effigy on the very Field where he wished they might receive a Welcome with bloody hands to hospitable Graves. We refer to this significant history of very re cent events with no desire to revive unpleasant recollections but to show to the people of Penn How utterly unfit the Federal i Pirly Are to administer the Laws secondly How inevitably their false and factitious course before every election covers them with disgrace when they get into office thirdly to place in contrast with their doctrines of expediency and extravagance the Plain practical popular and comprehensive Creed and conduct of demo cratic administrations. It is in View of these facts now a part of the history of the country that we think every Democrat has occasion to be proud of the position the National democracy occupies at a time when placed in a temporary minority. Under these auspices the democrats of Penn. Sylvania have gone into the present canvass with renewed courage and Confidence. They feel that their cause is right and just and they instinctively recall the whig pledges and pro Mises which preceded the election of compare them with the proscription and Perse cution that have since broken and trampled them under loot.
