V II I D A Y M O It N I N H. V iT.RUAIIY 4. PENNSYLVANIA. Wo publish in another column, Gov. Porter's special message to the legislature in reference to banks, and the finances ol the state. It seems that the state was under the necessity of raising 8800,000 to meet the interest on their debt. A proposition had been made to tho banks for n loan, which was declined, for the reason that a bill had already passed one branch of tho legislature compelling them to resume specie payments on tho loth of February, or forfeit their charters. I.osuinption was out of tho question, and a forfeiture of charters at the present mo ment idvolved too many serious conse quences to tho community to bo dwelt upon witli composure. Tho day arrived the interest was not paid, and the state was dishonored. Under these circumstan ces, ho communicated to the legislature the message in question, in which he repu diates the doctrines of locofocoism, and avows his determination to regard the in terests of the stale in preference to the interests of the party. His language is bold and fearless "I fed liminil In :iv, regardless nf nny dentin, ci.tuon uliiih in n li! tinuml fin ill fiom inn nn.tr.. ler. llut I belietc, if I'm riL'nr.iiH ii p?Hmii nf iMMiiir be adapted lococire the p.twnriil of llie linik, iinuipdialch lilt! cieilil nf the. .Stale inuJl nuil will lit! erintily mill iIUii; limxlj iiffected I et mi ,if in. inrc lii! nivrn In llic public. lli.il lit it rprlitiniiniinsPilil.lv. uilliln a le.ifnii.ihte tune, nnr.li if!niiiiiiiini vill lake place, inulili.il it u ill llien he. peiinanciii. This, of course, has drawn down upon him the unmitigated wrath of the ultra radicals, who arc ready to burst, for lack of terms to express their indignation ; while he is sustained by Speaker Hopkins, and a fair proportion of the influential members in both branches. A meeting of those in favor immediate resumption, and consequently now directly at issue with the governor, was held in Philadel pliia last week. No less n person than the notorious (,'eorgc M. Dallas, presi- deil. The meeting was addressed by the Chairman, the infamous C. J. Ingcrsoil, anil others. Resolutions were passed, approving of the passage of a bill compel ling immediate resumption, and the spee ches wore to the same effect. It appears, therefore, that an attempt will lie made to push the resumption liill through, in opposition lo the views of the Governor. Most, if not all, the persons who took an active part in the proceedings, were members of the Muhlenberg branch of the democratic party. The whole afiliir wears- the aspect of marshallig anew tho old Wolf and Muhlenberg parties for ac tion. Governor Porter is a man of too much real .spirit lo be deterred from his purpose, when ho has onco resolved, even by such formidable admidable ad versaries as G. M. Dallas and C. J. In gepoll. There is no possible chance, therefore, that Governor Porter can, by any means, be driven from his present position. And even if the legislature pass tho resumption hill, as it seems they will attempt to do, in spite of his opposition, ho will not fail to put his veto upon it. Still less have wo any reason to suppose that the Muhlen berg faction will change their ground after thus voluntarily coining forward and as suming it. The Keystone, Pcnnsylvanian, Times, Evening Post, and Now Era, have nxcom municated tho Governor and his allies from tho regular locofoco party, and are showering upon bis devoted bead tho bit terest denunciations in copious profusion. Tho following from tho Evening Post will servo as a specimen. "Wbolhor Governor Porter lie corrupt mid vena' or lunal and pusillanimous, or only Joolhh and deludid, wo earn not to inquire. Cowardice and u tuhicsi in public men, often jtroduco nearly all tho bad consequences of corruption. 'Il may pecin to Governor Portor very lino to cover up his apprehension of merited ro proacli with a show of contempt for (ho opinions ofhisconstitucnlK, whoso just ex pectation ho has disappointed, hut i ho rick will not pass. Sony within tho citadel of liix new allies, ho may about his defiance to hi" old friends as loudly as ho pleases, hut ho will not cicapo tho infamy which attends Ihoi-o who desort a just cause in a moment of need. As this is strictly a family quarrel, wo do not feel at liberty to interfere with it, any farther than to keep our readers ad vised of its progress.

His manner is calm, digni fied and forcible ; and well adapted to "the meridian of the Senato chamber." WILL 1STON M E ETING. The young men's call for a meeting of "those who are not prepared to ho made "over at tho dictation of party leaders," like to have bred n riot in tho loco foco ranks. The ofliee-liohlors swore they would not stand that. They had borne tho brunt of the battle, served their coun try without hope of reward, and were yet willing to continue at their posts. They were not, therefore, to ho imposed upon by boys. Accordingly, tiio Marshal, the breakwater agent, and Custom House Department wore on the ground at an early hour, and had things cut and dried before the youngsters got there. A beard less youth of near fifty years, presided, assisted by a number of venerable fathers and to while away tho time, a younger member was called upon to ridicule Gen. Harrison. The resolutions, b:ivin-r lmnn supervised by tho leaders, were not in tho least pugnacious, but such as indicate too clearly the fact, that the young men who adopted them were on this very occasion "made over to party leaders." At all events the "party leaders" are chuckling over the result, while some of the javenils begin to mistrust that they were gum'd, after all. SIGNS OF THE TIMES. The Ohio Confederate, a " State's Rights " paper at Columbus, and the Cincinnati Republican, tho strongest Slip portor ()f Van Burcn in Ohio, li out for Harrison. The " State's Night's " party although small in number, have held the balance of power in Ohio, for the last six years, and if they unite with the Whigs, the success of the latter is certain without the aid of any seceders from the Van Burcn ranks. Every sign therefore in Ohio is favorablo to tho pros pects of the Old Hero. NEW-JEIJSEY CASE A Washington correspondent of the New-York Commercial Advertiser, savs there will ho no preliminary report of tho committee on Elections, in the Now Jersey case until the full investigation is accomplished. Four of the committee were for reporting the commissioned members entitled to their seats on their commissions, four others were for repor ting the Tory remonstrants elected, with out any evidence of it, while tho chair man of the committee opposed both pro positions. New-Jersey, therefore, it is main 1111 represented l,n rn.nainder nf the' apparent, must rem probably during tho present session. The joint resolutions of the Legislature of tho State, protesting against the right of tho Representatives in Congress from other States to exclude the commissioned members from New Jersey have passed both Houses, and been transmitted to Mr. Hunter, of Ya., " who presides over tho body called, by courtesy, the House of Representatives of the United States. These resolutions, it will be perceived by reference to the proceedings in Congress, tho Speaker re fused to present to tho House, and for the reasons set forth in his letter to governor I Pennington.
