With tho agreements or dVjngrecmenta of the
different papers of tho State on tins subject wo
have, and can have, but httlo to do and especial
ly would we not interlei-o in regard to any matter
as between tho Messenger mid tho Watchman.
As,liOwcvcr, tho Messenger has seen proper to
place several of tho papers of tho State the
Herald among tho rest in opposition to tho n
vowed sentiments of the Watchman in regard to
this que&tioii wo feel to express tho hope and
the belief tcith if that no such disagreement has
occurred, or will occur, in any quarter, and that
there will be but ono expressed opinion on tho
subject when the time for action shall arrive.
Good very good. Wc aro not aware, howov

as eminently woll qualified for Governor. In

amen to tho nomination of either of tho abovo
named gentlemen, than tho senior publisher of
The Iloston Atlas of Tuesday says "The ve
ry latest ami most authentic information which
we haro received from Washington, Baltimore
and other places, leads us to believe that Gnci
al Scott will be nominated for the Prondency
without much difficulty, and perhnps on tho first
ballot ; and that tho feeling among all tho dele
gates is, that tho Convention will meet and net
in a spirit of union and harmony, worthy of the
good causo which they meet to promote"
.Vr. H'clsttr's J'alher. A writer in tho Boston
Daily dvertiscr informs tho public that the states
man's father was a remarkable man that " in
person ho was tall und commanding. His height
was more than six feet ; he had a complexion as
dirk as his Bon's a Roman nose and a most
piercing black oye." Hois said, or is supposed
to have delivered tho following speech, or sjiiio-
thing like it, at a Constitutional convention at
Concord, N. II., during tho Revolution. What
that speech, or the father's black cyo and tall
proportions has to do with tho fitness and quail
fications of his son for tho Presidency, wo can
not very readily see. Perhaps tho groat states
man's friends had better rely upon tho speeches
and talents ot Daniel than of Ebcnozcr Webster.
Hon. Daniel Webster will undoubtedly bo the
Whig candidate for President if he gets the

Opening of the Campaign.
Pirsl Gun from Maine 1 lleed, the H7tlg Candi-

Everybody hs heard of tho " Comet District"
in Maine, which, in order to make it strong Lo
cofoco, was made to extend from the seaboard to
tho Canada line. At tho last election, tho whlgt
made a strong effort to carry the district, but
were defeated by n, small plurality. Ry tho

A friend in whoso sngscity wo rely, and who
seldom allows himself to declare opinions until
ho has formed them upon sufficient premises,
writes from Washington under date of the 1 1th
instant, that there is no longer any doubt of the
nomination of (Jon. Scott.
We write this glorious news, for such we deem
it, with feelings of satisfaction that wo havo no
words to express. With Winfiold Scott for the
candidate, and tho Constitution tho whole Con
stitution for a platform, success is certain.
And not success merely not that success which
consists alono in tho enjoyment of official place,
the tenure of office, and tho dispensation ot pat-
rotngo j not that success which appears solely
in the exhibition of numerical majority and a
dominant parly ; but such success as shall ex

Wo boliovo that tho nconlo nro readv for n
camhdato upon such n platform. False issues,
and feigned issues, and local issues, and tempo
rary issues, nnu partial issues, have hud their
day. There is n feeling abroad that the renova
tion ol Uio liovcrnmcnt upon constitutional prin
ciples is necessary. They nro prepared to hear
tho truth in that bchall, and understanding, to
net upon it.
Thero is n tnlo of an ancient city, once stric
ken into stono by tho power of n magician. In
stantly, and w hile its streets wore full of life, its
marts busy wnli commerce, ami Us halls vocal
with ilons nro, it, and all its inhabitants, were
irozen into silence liko that of death. An impen
utrable forest sprung up, and shut it out from
human view. Ages passed away, and centuries,
and its name its very existence was forgotten.
At length a sohtnry trnveller was led to pay n
visit to its noiseless streets. There sat tho noise
less warrior, on his stony steed, with luuco in
mat flu liotrifiml in luu riirnnr fPI,n l.-tnif It-na
on liis throne, nnd, in the posturos in whicTi they
received the stroke, stood his silent court around
him. The stiffened Sentinel nt his post, glared
with his stony eye, but made no sign. Thu
rnniJcn reclined in her bower, in stillness like
tho grnve, and tho hammer of the attisan, stopped
in its blow, hung midway. All was silence.
Suddenly, tar over thu distant hills, was hoard
a sound, as if a trumpet spoke. As its tones
broko upon the city, every thing awoke as in
Etnntly as it had died. '1 ho hammer fell, the
sentinel challenged, the maiden touched her
lute, tho king bent his oar to the flatteries of Jus
courtiors, and tho btony steed sprang with new
fire upon his course, and bore his living master
to tho combat.
Such is the chango that will take place when
tho nows of tho nomination of General Scott
bursts upon tho people. Petrified by falso and
immaterial issues, nnd frozon by the pettiness of
conllicting local imoiests, they know not their
own btrength. tlut a " day ot rosutroction is nt
bund." The shorn locks of tho captive Sampson
will sprout afresh. His strength will return ; nnd
when tho gathering cry of Scott and the Consti
tutim shall be heard coming over the eastern
hills, the pillars of the temple of LocofocoKin
aro doomed to full, burying under their ruins the
ugly idol and Ins deluded worshipers.
Stam FinM. Those aro times which require
every truo wins to sluna Jinn to his principles
and present a bold front to tho enemy. If we
expect or hope for success in the approaching
rri'suieniiai contest, our runlu must presuut
a bold and unbroken front. Our attach
ment to nnd our zonl in tho defenco of
our principles, must not bo sullbred to abate.
If our principles aro worth any thing to lis. or
of interes-l to tho nation IU large, they bhould bu
defended, maintained and porpetuuted. No
good Whig, wu nro sure, would for a moment
listen to n proposition to abandon the noblo
Whig Ship, in which so many successful voyn-1
cos havo been made, but on tho contrary. 1ns
