Al t(tough these beautiful specimens of "Americanism" are recklessly squandering hundreds of thousands of dollars of the peoples' money, in playing the tool, not a single K. N. paper disapproves of their conduct! STAT E TBS FA N1162 55 K. r / Ti!#* election of HENRY S. MAGRAW to the highly important trust of Treasurer of the Common wealth, meets with a universal response of gratifica tion from al! sections of the State. Mr. Ms grave is and ha- been for many years one of the most relia ble Democrats in our tanks, and his qualifications are of the highest order. As a lawyer and public speak er he is the equal ot the ablest men of The present day. We want just such a inan at the sea: of Go vernment to lock after the interests o! the tax-pay ers. Mr. Migrate gave a magnificent entertainment a few evenings after his election, at which some three t>r four hundred guests were pre-ent, embracing near ly all the member- of the Legislature. Judge Wil kins. the accomplished Senator from. Allegheny, pre sided with all the grace and eloquence so peculiar to his character. Our friend and neighbor, Hon. ISAAC HCGUS, in a neat letter to the Convention, declined being a candidate. No man stands fairer with the Democra cy than Mr. Hugus; and the day is not distant when he will be properly rewarded for his unyielding devo tion to democratic principles. The TSietinfr! trust our friends will not neglect the Democratic Meeting to be held in the Court- House on next Monday week, as business of great importance will OP presented for its deli be'ration and action. The next State Conven tion will be one of the most important ever held in Pennsylvania. The duty will devolve upon it to select a Presidential Electoral Ticket, and choose delegates to the National Convention which meets in Cincinnati in June next. Also to nominate a candidate for the offices of Canal Commissioner, Auditor General, and Surveyor General, and to appoint a State Committee for the ensuing year. Hence the importance of the meeting proposed to be held on next Mon day week, when it will be necessary to give an expression of opinion as to who is-the choice of Bedford county tor the next Chief Megistra cv of this glorious'nation. Those Democrats who siraved from the fold to unite themselves with Whiggery, under the name of Know Nothings, if convinced of their error, are cordi diallv and affectionately invited to come back, and rally with us under that good old Flag and those sound Democratic Principles bequeathed to us by the Heroes'of the Revolution! And to those old line Whigs, who have never affilia ted with this disgraceful organization, we also extend a brotherly invitation to join us in de fending the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Rally Freemen to the res cue of your country, which is now threatened with all the horrors of Dissolution by the mad fanatics now ruling 4he National House of re presentatives! Awake before it is 100 late! 11 LAW ! The Jug Law has been repealed by a two-third vote in the House at Harrisburg—and, that it will be fully repealed and wiped front the Records, by the present Legislature, we have not a doubt, notwithstanding the K. N's go for it almost to a man, regardless of popular opinion! We shall have something to say on this exciting subject at the meeting on next Monday week, when our position will be so clearly defined that no man can misunderstand it. JiS LIT AIS I I©\VE A T I© A Pursuant to notice. the delegates elected by the different military divisions of tlie commonwealth, met at Harrisburg on tbe 31st tilt. The Convention organized, permanently, by electing Get.. GKORGK CADYV A I, ADF.R Chairman; who, on taking the Chair, delivered a neat, eloquent, and appropriate address. A committee of six, ot which General Cadwaiader is Chairman, was appointed by the Con vention to draft and present To the Legislature a bit! lor their action and consideration. The following are the resolutions adopted by the unanimous vote of tbe Convention: Whereas, it is generally concerted, that in tbe ab sence ofa standing army, which is at variance with the genius ot a republican lorm ot Government, the citizen soldier is the natural bulwuik ot our national detente; and whereas, the law tHut now exi.-ts in this State is inefficient and calculated to depress and enervate, by making the duties ol tbe volunteer one rous and expensive; and whereas, the Legislature, by lhe a.-t of ISJO, repealed the act of 1822, "entitled an act relating to the militia of the commonwealth," without providing any sufficient substitute, and re commended "that the Legislature at its next session pass a law for the re-organization of the militia of The Commonwealth," which has never been carried into effect, and that, therefore, in the opinion of this convention, the Legislature should, during tbe pre sent session, pass a law regulating the militia of the commonwealth in accordance with said recommen dation. Resolved, That we recommend the re-organization of the military department of the State; to increase its efficiency, enlarge its powers, and provide rea sonable jiay for its officers. That in the opinion of this Convention it should be made a separate and in dependent bureau of the executive branch of the Commonwealth. Resolved, That in 'he opinion of this Convention, the military tax should not be less than one dollar for each citizen taxable for military purposes. That a board of fiefd officers, selected in each brigade, lor that purpose, be empowered to make lists of persons taxable—appoint collectors and treasurers, and dis burse the fund raised in payment ot the expenses ol the Brigade, and that all collecting, receiving and disbursing officers be required to give security, to be approved by said board, lor >he faithlul perform ance of their dutie-. On aiotion of Col. T.EE. Resolved, That a committee of six, in conjunction with the Chairman of the Convention, be constituted for the purpose of drawing and urging upon the at tention of the Legislature, an act embodying the sense of this Convention, and that they also be a per manent committee, with power to call subsequent Conventions whenever it may be deemed necessary. The Convention appointed Col. Lee, Generals Cad walader and Bowman, Major Hodgson, Col. Gregg, anil Captains Ziegler and Eyster, said Committee. On motion of Col. Raymond, Resolved, That the thanks of this Convention are hereby tendered to Gen. Cadwalader tor the able manner in which he has presided over its delibera tions. At a meeting of the committee above named, at Herr's Hotel, on the morning of the 22(1 January, al ter a free interchange ol sentiment, it was unnimou ly Resolved that Gen. Cadwalader fiame the Bill contemplated above; to which he consented alter pointing out the difficulties anil the great labor pre sented in the undertaking. No man in the State is better qualified for this arduous duty than Gen. C. and the entire military of the Commonwealth will rejoice to learn of his willingness to serve them in this matter. This, however, is not the first time the General has sacrificed his personal comfort for the public good. Disgraceful Proceedings in Congress. QWe copy below from the Washington Union, o 11h e 25th and 26th inst. the following synopsis of "AMERICA N " Congressional Pro ceedings, to which we invite the careful atten tion of the people; satisfied that candid men ol all parties will agree with us that so disgrace ful a body (we mean the majority) never before assumed to control this glorious land and tuition. And yet this is the organization which contends that it, alone, is til to "rule America!" The House met at 12, m. Praver by the Rev. Mr. Teasdale. The journal of yesterday was read and ap proved. The Clerk stated that the House having de cided on yesterday that the main question should not then he putoti'the resolution submit ted by the gentleman from Arkansas, [Mr. RUST,] the question recurred, Shall the main question be now put. Mr.STANTON, ofOhio. demaneded the yeas and nays on ordering the main question. Mr. PRINGLE, of New York, moved to lay the resolution on the table. Mr. FULLER, of Pennsylvania. Mr. Clerk, i I desire before the vote is taken, with permis ' sion of the House, to submit a few remarks. [Cries of "Hear him, hear him."] The Clerk. If no objection is made, the gen tleman will proceed. Mr. FULLER. Mr. Cleric, I believe it was i generally uuderstood that, immediately upon ' the introduction of the resolution by the gentle man from Arkansas [Mr. RUST] some days ago, I signified mv wish and intention to withdrew as a candidate. This lias been my desire for weeks. I have so expressed myself to my li finds ; but as they have considered my name under their control, and not under my own, I have been compelled to submit to its use with ' out public objection. 1 desire now distinctly to withdraw it, and have it so understood; and, ; at the same time, I tender my acknowledg ! merits for the support which I have received, and for the uniform kindness and courtesy with which I have been treated, and trust that I may be allowed to express the hope that we may now adopt some plan of action by which these difficulties may be settled—some mode of ad justment whit h will be agreeable to ourselves, satisfactory to our constituents, and honorable to the whole country. Mr. JONES, of Tennessee, hoped that the i House would permit the names of Messrs. Rtcn- I ARDSON and FULLER to be stricken out of the I lesolution, as they were no longer candidates, i The Clerk. II there be no objection, the ; names of Mr. RICHARDSON and Mr. FULLER j will be stricken out. Mr. GIDDINGS, of Ohio, objected. The motion to lay the resolution on the table i was agreed to—yeas 100, nays 99. VOTE FOR SFKAKEK. The House then proceeded to vote for SpeaU i er.

Mr. FAULKNER, of Virginia,submitted the following resolution, on which he called for the previous question ; : Resolved , That the persistent adherence of the republican party to the Hon. \. P. BANKS as its candidate for the office of Speaker, after the repeated manifestations bv a majority of the members of this House that he does not pos ' sess their confidence for that station, exhibits a determination to sacrifice the public interests of the country to the triumphs ola personal and sectional party, and that the further continu ance of his name before this tmdv as the candi date of his narty for the office of Speaker justly attaches to his supporters the responsibility for the failure to organize this House. I Mr. WASH BURN E, of Illinois, moved to lav the resolution on ihe table. Mr. DUNN, of Indiana, hoped that the gen tleman from Virginia would withdraw the reso lution. Mr. FA VLXNF.R refused to withdraw the resolution. It expressed bis wishes, and if the gentleman from Indiana could not stand to it he did not know who could. After some further conversation the resolu tion was withdrawn. The House then proceeded to the one hun | dred and twenty-fourth vote for Speaker, with the following result: Whole number of votes, 200 ; necessary to a choice, 101 : of these— Mr. Banks received 95 Orr 68 H.

Beforethe result lor Speaker was announced, and while the rln ks were casting it up. the pri vate sect itaiy of the President, Sidney Webster, Esq., appeared at the main entrance lo the hall, and the Doorkeeper announced "a message lronn the President of the United States." Immediately upon this announcement, Mr. CAMPELL, ol Ohio, objected, to the re ception of the message. Ureal excitement and disorder here occurred, member# rising in all parts of Die hall. Rlr. ORK, of South Carolina, submitted to the gentleman Irom Ohio that he allow the se cretary of the President to make the announce ment ol the message, and then make his objec tion to its reception. Mr. CRAIGE, of North Carolina, said that the gentleman from Ohio objected to something —he would like to know what. .Mr. ORR hoped that the secretary would be allowed to state whether it was a message or not. Mr. CRAIGE rose to a point of order. He de manded to hear the announcement of the .secre tary. The gentleman from Ohio— [Cries of "order," "order."] The clerk desired gentlemen to take their seats and preserve order. Mr. CRAIGE insisted on hearing what the paper was. j Shouts of order.] He could not be cried down. [Order, order.] He demanded to he heard as a member of the body, representing as he did a district which first proclaimed the Declaration ol I independence. [Vociferous cries of "order," and indescribable confusion.] Mr. CRATGE continued sp-aking, demand ing t hear the announcement ol the message. .Mr. PAINE, ol North Carolina. In the name ol God and rny country, 1 protest against tins tiling. The clerk requested gentlemen to take their seats and aid him in preserving order. Order at length being somewhat restored, Air CRAIGE proceeded to state his jioint of order. The gentleman from Ohio [Mr. CAUI"- BCI.L] had objected to the reception of what ? The House did not know what it wa, and what lie brought, before any objections were made. Mr. CAMPBELL, ol Ohio, made the point or order that while the House was acting under the rule prohibiting debate it could do nothing except vote on the motions that were submitted. Mr STEPHENS, of Georgia, moved that the message be received. After some further conversation, the pointsof order were withdrawn: and the question be.ne taken on the motion to receive the message, it was agreed to—yeas 117, nays 84. The Cleik having stated that the message would now be received— The President's secretary made the following announcement: "I am directed by the Pre sident of the United States to communicate to the House of Representatives a message in writ ing, if it be the pleasure of the House to receive it." Mr. CRAIGE. It is the pleasute of the House. Mr. A. K. MARSHALL, of Kentucky, mov ed that the message be read. Mr. VVAKEMAN, of New York, moved to lav the motion on the table The question was taken on the motion to lay on table, and it was not agreed to —yeas DO, nays 86. On the announcement of the vote there was applause in the galleries. The Clerk read the message. Oil its conclusion Mr. CAMPBELL, of Ohio, slated that, as debate was not in order, he moved to lay the the message on the table. Mr. A. K. MARSHALL moved to amend the motion by inserting tiiat the message be com mitted to the hands of the present Clerk to be handed over bv him to his successor. Mr. CAMPBELL accepted the modification. Mr. JONES, of Tennessee, said that il they would lay the message upon the table it would always be in possession ol the House. Mr. S.NEED, of Tennessee, moved to lay the subject upon the table; which motion was agreed to. Mr. A. K. MHRSHALL moved that when the House adjourn, it adjourn to meet on Wed nesday next.

Feb. 1, IS5G—3t ' INTRODUCTION TO THE REPORT OF THE ABj*3fioßas WfHeral So;* I S His Excellency, JAMES POLLOCK, Governor of Pennsylvania: SIR: —As required by law, I herewith sub mit to your Excellency a detailed Report of the condition of the militia of the Commonwealth, (embracing all the information in my jrosseisiou,) together will) an inventory of the arms and military stores now in the several arsenals.
The building occupied as a temporary- arsen al in Philadelphia, at an annual rent of SIOO, is no belter than an ordinary bam, and is entirely inadequate to the sale keeping ol the stores there deposited, it being so located as to render il very insecure from the ravages of fire, a fact which I brought to the attention ol the legisla ture in my last annual report. It was the only building, however, that could he had at the time it was rented, and was only intended to be used for a limited period. 1 would respect fully suggest that there is no use whatever lot an Arsenal at either Philadelphia or Meadville, now that our public improvements are capable of transmitting the arms, &.c. to almost any part ol the State in a few days, and at a tiifiiuit cost. The present Arsenal at Harrisburg, with a few hundred dollars' of repair, will be amply sufficient to hold the store# now on hand, and all that will be likely to accrue, under the pre sent appoitiontnent, for a great many years to come. Jri my judgment, the public interests would be promoted by the passage of an act to sell the arsenal at Meadville, and authorizing the removal of the stores from the Philadelphia to the Harrisburg arsenal. If the thirty thou sand dollars for which the Philadelphia arsenal was sold (now in the Treasury,) and the amount which would arise from the sale of the Mead ville arsenal, were appropriated for the encour agement of volunteer companies, it would onl v be an act of justice to which they are eminent ly entitled. Music and Colors should be furn ished by the Slate, and the men composing a company should be allowed a reasonable sum for the time spent in preparing themselves to dttend their country from foreign invasion or domestic insurrection. To become a member cr-ja volunteer company, a man necessarily ex pands from twenty-five to fifty dollars in provi ding himself with a proper uniform: arid is it ji| t, alter making this sacrifice of his own per sonal means, that iie should be required to spend a number of days, in the course of a year, for the public good, without receiving some remu neration for the time thus spent '! The annual quota of arms apportioned to Pennsylvania, (under the law of 1808, as a rnended by the seventh section of "An act mak ing appropriations for the support of the army, lor the year ending the 30th of June, IS:*>(>, and for other purposes," approved the 3d March, liS.ofr,) amounts to only twelve hundred and tbiity-thn-e muskets, which is not sutlicietit to supply the pressing demands upon this office: hence the necessity of support from some other quaiter. Our quota will hereafter be made ac cording to the number of Representatives and Senators in Congress, and not according to the number of militiamen in the Commonwealth, as heretofore. By the decision of the ordnance department, at Washington, there was 3G9 8-13 muskets due us for the year iSbb, all of which have been issued, except 1 1-13 muskets, which, when added to the actual quota for ISfifi, gives us 1234 1-13 muskets, or their equivalent in such stores as may be deemed necessary to meet tfce numerous wants of our gallant citizen sol diery. Since the trainings of the ununiforme<l mili tia were abolishi'd, we have never been able to get a full return ol the strength of the Stum, consequently we have failed to draw as rtianv arms from the General Government as we were justly entitled to. Whilst the second section ol the act of 184-9 requires the assessors, mid r a penalty of twenty-five dollars, to make return ol all delinquent rmlitamen to the proper brigade inspector, there is no binding obligation upon brigade inspectors to make return to the Ad jutant General; and, consequently, most of their reports have been deficient in tins respect. In 1847, during Governor Shnnk's adminis tration, I reported two hundred and seventy-six thousand and seventy men as the strength of the militia of the Commonwealth, upon which basis we were furnished with arms from that period up to, and including the year 1853. In 1854. alter every reasonable effort on my part, I was only enabled to report m j hundred and six thousand nine bundled ami fifty-seven men as the force of the State. My predecessor only reported thirteen thousand one hundred and tit ty, being the number ol uniformed militia. '1 his reduced our quota to eighty-two muskets: and, in the language of the head ol the ordnance de paitment, placed us in debt to the General Gov ernment for a period ot twenty years. This in debtedness, however, (for arms alleged to have been overdrawn.) was taken off after the proper explanation as to how this deficiency occurred, had been made. Our interests hereafter will not be affected, so far as drawing arms is con cerned, by an imperfect return of militamen— the quota being now based upon a principle which cannot fail to give uniformity. At present Pennsylvania can boast of as fine a volunteer organization. as any other State in the 1 nion; and, il they wete pioperlv encour aged bv legislative enactment, the "Old key stone" would, in this particular, soon eclipse any of her sister States. There are several companies, handsomely uniformed, that have no arms, which lias caused much complaint. They are unwilling to re ceive old or second-hand guns, and would ra therdisband than parade with arms of this de scription. Some companies have accepted of second-hand guns, under tile promise that they are to have nevv ones as soon as they can be had. The laws governing the militia, have been so alteied and amended as to render it almost im possible for even a Philadelphia lawyer to un derstand them ; and if they were all repealed, and a law enacted, simple in its details, and for cible in its points, it would be a source of gen eral congratulation among the military—and it is to be hoped that the present Legislature will meet the expectations of the public touching this subject , which is one of no small importance. The persons charged with feloniously abstrac ting from the Harrisburg arsenal one hundred and thirty-five guns, belonging to the Common wealth, are under arrest, and will he tried in the criminal court of Dauphin county, which commences on the 21st instant. No pains will he spared in the just prosecution of this case, and in ferreting out any other cases of robbery, if such exist. 1 made sale of a second-hand field piece (dis mounted) in December last, to citizens of Adams countv, Pennsylvania, for the sum of one hun dred dollars, which i- the only sale 1 have made since the date of my commission. I have au thorized no one to k v sale nf itnserv'feeable arms, except brigade inspectors, who a;e under bonds, and who are instructed to make rejx>iti>f their sales (if any) to the Auditor General ami State Treasurer, when settling their accounts. I have made an abstract ofliiis report to Mis Excelh-ncy, the President ol the United States, as required by law. Youi Excellency is respectfully referred to the accompanying statement and tables for a list ol the general, field and regimental officers, for a 11>t ofall the companies of uniformed mili tia, and for statistical information.

Jt savs the present i# fniitful of instruc tion in the polities of the country. The new theory of the new partv which organized in garrets and wrote its political creed by the mid night lamp, and consecrated their faith by the blood of their brethren shed in the riots of Phila delphia, New York, Louisville, Cincinnati, Bal timore and St. Louis, is being put to practice in the attempt of "Americans" to rule America ! More than one and a hall months have passed since the present "American Know Nothing" Congress has Keen assembled, and vet the or ganization of the House has not yet been effect ed. No scene of the kind has ever before been enacted in this nation. It has no parallel in contempt to the people! no rival in weakness, no competitor in follv, no like in everything dis graceful, factious and reckless. It is an anoma ly. With vain boasting about ruling Ameri ca, it has failed to rule itself. Prating of liber ty and good go\ eminent, 1! is a scene of anarch v, and is unable to produce any government ut all! Talking much of foreign paupers, it has con verted its members into a hand of hungiy pau pers feeding on the treasury of the people, without doing us any service ! The nation is being humbled by its actions •. and the contempt of the world will circle round those who now constitute the popular branch of the national Congress, it is a shame. The representatives ot the people should be ashamed to thus misrep resent an honest constituency. If they have lost all regard for th -n selves, let the interests ot their country, the pride of the nation, the hope that the struggling masses of mankind have in us, tin* memory ol Webster and Clay, and Calhoun, arid Adams,and Randolph, and Jack son, of whose gr-alness the present members are the faintest shadow of a shadow, —let com mon sense and common honesty make them or ganize' the House or go home !

Go there and learn the new doctrine of the government of a country by the enemies of civil iiml religious freedom. When you have gathered instructions there, then reflect that most of those who are actois in the farce are creatures of midnight or ganizations, which two years since banded to gether for political purposes, bound bv wicked and infamous oaths to proscribe their fellow cit izens on account of religious belie! and place of birth.
