CoU William Bigler. We have this week raised to our masthead the name of Col. Wuxiwi Bigler, of Clearfield county, as our choice for the next Gubernatorial nomination—and not only cur's, but we believe also the choice of a large majority of the Democratic party, in Lancaster county. In doing so we are actuated by hostility to no other gentleman who has been named in connection ^vith the office—on the contrary, we could Tender either of them a most cheerful and willing support.. But, circumstances have made Col. Bigler by far the roost prominent as well as the most available candidate, and the nomination of any other at this time would cause the heart burnings and distrust in the minds ofthe people, and again -endanger the State and the"Nation. With this impression strong upon our mind, and with the knowledge that he is a sound and reliable Democrat, possessing talents of a high order, and in all respects well qualified to 611 the important station with credit to himself and ...

Fostag« oa the Democrat. The New Postage Law takes effect ©n the first of July next. Under its provisions, the Democrat will be carried in the mails, fkee oFtros.TAcc, to any part of Centre county ; to any distance out of the county, nol exceeding fifty miles, five cents per quarter ; and for tny distance over fiAy and not exoeding three hundred miles, ten cbxts per quarter. We hope our Democratic friends—especially in this county—will exert themselves to swell our subscription list, now that the postage is so soon to be taken off. A highly important political campaign is rapidly approaching, and the more general diffusion of intelligence among the people will tell with marked eflect on the day of the election. An increased" circulation of the paper will benefit the party and the publisher in a corresponding ratio. The advantages are reciprocal, and it therefore should be considered a duty roevery Democrat in the County to aid in enlarging the influence of a journal devoted to the...

Candidates for Snpre&e Judges. From present indications, one of the chief objections that was urged to the election ot Judges, will be effectually obviated, and instead of the Judges that are to be (so far as the Supreme bench is concerned, at least) being composed of fifth-rate lawyers," and incompetent, they likely to be selected from the most eminent and able men of the State, and will f°rm a Bench as powerful and as distinguished for legal abilities as the present Bench,— high and distinguished as they are admitted to be. Among the number, from whom a selection of the five candidates will most likely be selected by the Democratic Convention, arc Hon.- Ellis Lewis, of Lancaster ; Judge Lowrie, of Pittsburg; Judges Campbell, Petit.and King of Phita. W. A. Stokes, of Westmoreland ; J. W. Maynard, of Lycoming, Judge Bell, of Chester; Judge Thompson, of Erie; Hon. H. D.Foster, of Westmoreland, and several others whose names we do not now recollect.

New Hampshire.—The result ofthe re cent election in this State is still in doubt as far as the legislature is concerned, but it is certain that Dismqre the Democratic candidate for Governor will lack several thousand of a majority. Jn that case the election of Governor will devolve on the House, and in that view ofthe question the result of the contest for members of the Legislature becomes the more important and interesting. One_thing is certaiw, the tbe regular Democrats of the Old Gtanite State deserves all praise for "the manful manner in which they acted in the whole affair. Utterly refusing all alliances with free-soil, they repudiated a candidate who would not place himself fairly on the platform of the Union, and with this disadivantage they nobly marched on to the ^fight. If they have been beaten, they havcJbeen so with their colors flying, oh whicawas1 ) inscribed the great principles of the party and upon which no traitor had ever laid his poluted hands.

• Hon. Geo. W. Woodw'aru.—This distinguished gentleman declines being a candidate for the Supreme Bench. In a letter in reply to certain cwsens of Clinton . county asking him to allow his name to be used in this connection, he says : I do not wish to be understood as unwilling to make a'sacrifice of personal preferen: ees for the benefit of the public. ~On the contrary, I hesitate not to say that my reasons for declining judicial stations, if ten times stonger than they are, should be cheerfully sacrificed, if I believed it were necessary for the attainment of any great public good. Personal interests and domestic considerations must, when real necessity exits, give way to public demands. But this is not such an occasion. There are many gentlemen more competent and worthy than myself, who are willing and anxious to fiti the places on the Supreme Bench, and whose circumstances oppose no obstacle to their devoting their time and attention to judicia' labors. Indeed, according estima...

The Bank of Pennsylvania.—A mas-[ terly reply to the memorial ofthe Bank ! of Pennsylvania; asking to be relieved from the payment of the tax on dividends, provided* by law, has been sent to the Speaker of' the Senate by Auditor General Purviance and State Treasur er Bickle, in- which they show ,thut the claim df the Bank h oot founded in juotioo and that so far as services to the State are concerned, it has certainly not entitled itself on the account to the consideration of the State, and especially not to the exemtion from taxation which it asks for, Th*. paper is fortified by many strong arguments, which cannot fail to weigh strongly with the Legislature. The fact stated in the following paragraph is known to many of our citizens: Had the Bank of Pennsylvania manifested the same disposition to aid the Btate Treasurer in his laudable efforts to pay the interest on the funded debt in specie funds as andther institution has several times done, some thousands of dollars paid for...
