'lave heard of the equivocation of the gentler sex,
. under embarrassing circumstances--we have even
.read the speeches ond public pledge of Martin Van
Burma to his political tenets, and we are frank
'to confess that, at first blush, we thought this reso
lution the most ambiguous and equivocal production
, w had ever seen; but on learning the history of
Mr. Edwards, we inferred that the writer knew the
Cman he was speaking of, and turned his periods
accordingly. On a first reading, we excused "its
.manner," by supposing Mr. E. to be some young
man whoso talents had given him precedence with
hi party, and to whom no opportunity had pre
sented itself of rendering service to tho cause,
.but a change soon "came o'er the spirit of our
dream." Ht. E., we learn, has for fifteen or twen
ty years, been a eandidato for, and the recipient of,
public favor, and yet his friends have voted that
his ''good service" is still in him! He has held
. more trusts than Mr- Linn, Judge Reynolds, or
Sir. Jameson, and these gentlemen are spoken of
in"ttie most exalted term for service already per
formed, and Mr. E. is dispatched with the hope
. that his may no longer lay dormant! "At least,
my Lord, the hope expressed, is most equivocal."
' The writer of the resolution will certainly make an
' excellent 'special pleader,' and were it not for Mr.
Bat, we would recommend that he be appoin ted
The following is an extract from one of the let
'. tcrs of a correspondent of the Missouri Republi
can, who was at the city during the sitting of the
Convention, and who seems to be not less familiar
" with the merits of Mr. E. than the gentleman who
penned the resolution :
- " It had been announced that after Col. Benton
had spoken, the meeting would be addressed by all
the other members of our delegation in Congress.
But two -of them, however,' Miller and Edwards,
i were present, and they declined the arrangement.
-. This proves as clearly that they could'nt speak as
.that they did'nt speak: for whit locofoco ever de
clined the stump that was able to mount it? Well.
. we all know that neither of these members can
' write nor speak what the deuce then are they fit
for? Pints of order was not. there probably he
had been practising more with quarts than pints.
: Tho new Governor was also absent so was the
eld one. Govenor Boggs. it appears, has entirely
abdicated, and with his whole family, left the citv.
How utterly is he fallen! His history is the best
illustration or the potency or locolocoism fur gov
ernmentshowing that, prefering men alone for
their party seal and their readiness to pledge
, themselves to every party measure, however capri
cious and absurd, they must perpetually exuerience
the shame of having exalted to office, and worship
ed while thus exalted, minions who fade before the
test of time, and drop speedily back into the insig-
' nificance from which nothing but party folly could
,.havn raised them. This will be the case with Ed
wards, thuir new member to Congress, who, if he
had been placed before the people on his own merits.
-would have been immediately consigned to the
shades in which lie had not the sense to remain.
How Benton must triumph at the goodness of his
party to place under his coetrol such infinite jack
sees as they ! " ,

beard a fact of him that reminds us of the case of
most young Methodist preachers: They commence
their career by preaching in the country, at 'school
houses, and at neighbors' houses,' but you can't got
them into town". In the late canvass, Mr. E. made
an extensive circuit. .When he . found himself
very ''high up" in Davis, he mounted the huntings.
and, as we learn, made a most effective effort
considering tho county he was in. We saw Mr.
E. in qurctowa a few days, since, and had it not
lieen for his attempt to apo the dandy, by wearing
his green spectacles, we doubtless would have
thought better of him. As it is our duty, however
to shoot at higher game, we will drop him for the

Now ihat' Gen. Harrison's election is conceded,
somet wonderful manifestations of patriotism are
being made by our must prominent Loco foco
friends. It was but a few evenings since that one
remarked. "Harrison's friends mutt ultimately
earry Missouri. His efforts have always been di
reeled to her advancement. He was the first man
for pre-emptions, firt for the repeal of the duty

The .following is from the Miuurl Argus
that made' Us' appearance, just befdreUit election. -The
reader will see that it has reference to the Lo
co foco forgery .of. General Harrison s name to the
Tap pun letter which we publish to-day :
',!,. HIGHLY., IMPORTANT! ,
Read the following Extra which was received at
this office by mail of last night. Doe it not con-
tirm what you have already had sutticiently preyed:
that the Abolitionists of ths North will concentrate
their votes on Harri-s.nl The Cincinnati listen

is given that it it is not a genuine Abolition docu
ment as it purports to be. Of course the Gazette,
which is published on the verge or Kentucky, must
find some antidote to its Inrluonce iu that State.
and therefore pronounces It a forgery. Bui the doc
uinent is undoubtedly an abolition production issu
ed, as it purports, from the office of the Emancipa
tor in New Yorx city.
The Democrats have never used such devices a
this for sudden effect. This is a legitimate child nf
Abolition Whiggery.' Read it aid judge. And
let every elector who casts his vote for Harrison
know that he is voting-for the candidate of the
abolitionists. -.. t
Now, read the following from the same paper.
published after the election, and seo how decidedly
the two reconcile themselves with Loco Foco mor
ality and honesty ; , .
There is not a sane nun in the community who
will nt .fc at once that if Gen. Harrison's letter
to Arthur Tappanand others be a forgery, it is a
federal forgery, pot up hy the federalists themselves,
to effect the double object of deceiving both the
North and South. Genera I Harrison was to reop
the benefit of this double dealing: first, by the abo
litionists of the North being induced, through an
explicit pledge in his name, with or without his
real signature, to abandon theseperale nomination
and throw i lie full strength of the Abolition vote
in I lie federal scale; and next hy enabling General
Hrrion to deny to the South that he ever did et
his name to such a pledge, anil thereby securing for
him the suffrage of the slavcholding States.
While the election was yet pending, it was most
soundly argued in a slave state that it was a genu
ine letter, and now that the time has passed for de
luding voters, it must be sworn, that if it is a forg
ery, it was done by Harrison's friends ! If such
was the fact, why did Gen. Harrison publish a card
in the very deh of abolitionists denying its authen
ticity ? If such was the Object, how did the Argus
happen to have one of the original extras for
warded to him, in or der to operate on our voters!
The trick is too shallow, gentlemen, and althougn
it is a heavy load, you must shoulder it.
WHO DOUBTS IT !
Some three or four weeks before the election,
Mr. Van Buren's New York District Attorney gave
notice that Mr. V. B. had a card to play that would
not only beat General Harrison, but would, beyond
doubt, overthrow the Whig party of New York
also. In the face of this threat can any man doubt
but that the Tappan forgery, and the bribery and
perjury operations in New York, was the desperate
"last card" referred Jol f Can any one doubt but
the prominent Locos throughout the United States
was a wo re of it, and bet. their money accordingly?
None doubts it here. We hence look for the re
sult in New York and the Southern States, with
correspondent in Snline suggests that as
Major Harvey left the Old Dominion for the pur
. pose of getting rid of office, and as he has been
ogain beaten in his. own county, would it not he
fuir for the Major to permit Major Shroyer (his op
ponent) to serve one third of the session. If the
Major will not agree to this, we would suggest
that as one county of his district is Whig, that he
should vary the political complexion of his votes so
as to give a Harrison vote every third time ! From
the earnest the Major has given us in Missouri,
it is fair to infer that he run for oifi:e, rather than
from it. We are obliged to our correspondent for
the vote of Saline. . . ,

A ROYAL CONFLAGRATION.
The Empress nnd the Monarch: two majestic
bonis, were completely demolished by firu upon
the river early yesterday morning. The Empress
was up for St. Louis, and would have left at me.
ridian on Wednesday but for tho violent rain
storm which prevailed at that time. Betwen3
and 4 o'clock on yesterday morning the was dis
covered to be on fire, but so rapid was the pro
grcss of the flames that all efforts to check the
confla ration proved unavailing, There being
no posibility of saving the boat, and her presence
placing the other boats in manifest danger, she
was at length cut loose and suff -reil to fl iat off
into the stream. This produced a singularly
novel and inognifi' ent spectacle for those who
left their beds and .sought the Levee at the sound
of the fire bells. The blazing bo:it, one sheet of
flame from stein to stern, fell olTinlo the current
illuminating the vessels and houses along the
Levee, spreading a broud glare of red around the
sky and lightning the deep Mississispi with a long,
quivering reflection of her (lames.
She floated almost directly across the river,
touched the opposite shore at slaughterhouse Point
anil comnvtnicaiing her fire to the Monarch, which
was there at the ship yard, undergoing tepaiis.
Both of .he doomed vessels were from here towed
out into the stream by a ferry boat and cut loose,
from whence they floated down the river, an.) the
two hulks sunk in fifteen feet water some nix or
seven miles below tne city.
The Empress was owned brincipally in Frank,
fort, (Ky.) and partly in St. Lou's. She was coir..
u:anded by Capt. Bacon, who never left the bla
zing vessel until she was cut loose by the ferry
boat and actually sinking. It is possible that the
fire of the Empiess niiiihl have been quenched on
this side, but the risk to the adjoining boats was
so great that the other crews cut her loose. The
loss of boat and cargo, which was principally
salt, is estimated at $30,000
The Monarch was valued at $40,000-, upon
which there was insurance to the amount of

Fine. About four o'clock yesterday morning
the alarm of fire was given, which proved lobe in
the steam boat bm press, bound lor St. bouisand
ready to start. She was lying at the foot of
Gravicr street the steam boats Rienzi, Oceana,
&c. lying in the same tier. It was thought advi
sable to cut the Empress adrift, which was acccr
dingly done. She then drifted with the cunent
ar.d was urged by tho wind to the opposite side of
the river, and unfortunately brought up alongside
of the steam boat Monarch, (recently launched,
after having undergone thorough repairs,) and we
regret to state, that in a few niinuns the monarch
caught fire and burned to the water's edge. ''
The fire then communicated to the IiiiIk of the
Boonslick, which was also consumed; and by the
greilcsl dint of exertion the Hurna, tying on the
siocks at the vard of Messrs. Ilarroll & Co, wns
saved, with but little damuge to the after-cabin.
During the i-onlusion on hoard the Monarch,
nn explosion of gunpowder took place on boaid
the Empress, from the forward hatch, which niiuo-
riolly deterred the efforts to save apoition of her
caigo. However, we are happy to state that no
injury was sustained by the persons immediately
in the vicinity.
The hulks were towed down by the ferry boat
to the fhts opposite Slanghter House Point, and
we learn an attempt will be made to save the en
gines. We have not learned ho the fire origi
nated. . . "

DEPRAVITY OF THE PRESS.
The rancour mid malignity of the Loco Foco
presses in Pennsylvania, at the present time, is
admirably rebuked in the following article from
the American Sentinel. The Sentinel speaks in
language which should go to the heart of eveiy
editor who propeily appreciates the dignity of his
station. We do not pretend to say that in the heat
of political warfare, and under tho "excitement
of composition, '" we have not at times exceeded
the bounds of moderation; but we do claim for
ourselves honestv of intention. We believe that
we are not guilty of malignity or wilful misrepre.
sentatio.'i. I his is not the case with many edi-
tors in the Van Buren ranks. We know them to
be governed by corrupt motives, and to act a part
inconsistent with truth and luir-uealing, We
regret that they putsue this course, inasmuch as
it degrades the profession. It would be more
agreeable for all parties if they would pui.-ue a
fair and honorable touise; but perhaps this would
not answer the pui poses of the party. The paper
alluded to in Hie following is, wo relieve, the

VULGARITY AND V1NDICTIVENESS.
Generally speaking, the public piess in the
principal cities, exhibits a gratifying improvement
in the manner of conducting politicical discus
sions. There is less of personality, less of the
vulgar and scurrilous, than in former years, when
there was far less excitement. We wish we could
say as much for the press of thecoumry, and our
own Siate in particular. It is absolutely nausea
tine to look over our exchunges. Thus we have
belore us a paper printed in one of the Inrgest
towns in Pennsylvania, and edited by a man. of
luk'iits, and from so nettling like a column and a
half of editorial articles, we lake only a moiety
of the epithets applied to a political antagonist.
