Mo'VEMENTS OF THE WIGs IN NEw
The Whig party in-those sections of our
country where it is most numerous, is
ylaying a most desperate game. We re
cently quoted an article from the Boston
Courier, proclaiming in the strongest terms
the worthlessness of our Federal Union.
Theiarticles which we give below, from
the Boston Post, show. pretty clearly that
the promulgation of such a sentiment, the
Boston Courier hardly misrepresents, it
any considerahle degree, the prevalent
Whig feelings in that city.
In fact the recent movements which
have lately taken place in several of the
New England States, go very clearly to
prove that the whig party of those States
is nownearly if not quite ready and re
solved to throw itself isto.the arms of the
abolitionists, or at least to coalesce to them
and with their principles. The course of
events in New Hampshire which resulted
in the recent election of John P. Hale to
the UnCited States Senate-the invitation
sinutaneously extended by the whigs of
Maine to this same Mr. Hale.-the New
Hampliire abolitionist, to canvass the
State of Maine by the Whig side, prior to
the election-the fell and cordial extension
of the right hand of fellowship by the
whigs of Boston, to the. first named ta
these gentlemen taken in connection with
the recent establishment of a Whig aboli
tionist journal in Boston, (the Daily
Whig,) to be the organ of these viels
all these things seem to leave little doubt
that the Whigs of New England are sub
stantially ready at this moment to take
their position on the abolition platform.
But the northern mail of this morning
firings. to us the proceedirgs of the Whig
State Convention of Massachusetts, as
undoubted confirmation of this view, for
which we confess the previous indications
we have referred to had not fully. prepar
ed us. The Whig State Conveniion as
sembaled in 1anueill F-all, on the 23d inst.,
and appears to have embraced a full rep
resentation of the Whig sentiment in las
sachusetts. It adopted about three col
umns of resolutions, only for a single spe
cimen of which we can . afford rooi.V It
is as follows
"Resolved, That tie Whigs of Massa
chusetts regard slavery as a great moral,
political, and social evil, and. they there
fore pledges themselves to present as firm
a front of opposition to the institution of
slavery, as is consistent with our dllegi
once to the constitution, and our duties as
noirribers of ihe confedera'y'.
Resolved;Thiat the -Whiigs ofMassa
zjpise...se-lkenihm t uried kegsit
tional anil prbptr means to restrain themal
ready preponderatidg influence of slave
hIlding interests. in the national legisla
tian, to defeat all measures calclated to
uphold slavery, and promote all constitu
tibual measures for its overthrow, and will
oppose at all times, with uncomnpromising
zeal and firmness, any farther addition ol
slaveholding States to this Union, out of
whatever territory formed; and they will
ini like manner oppo. seall further extension
of the slavery of the African Lace on this
continenot. If utnder the goverenent of
Providence, it shmall happen that piortions
of thiis conatinent, net belonging ,to the U.

The Weathe.--Since our last, the weather
continued dry and pretty warm. On Sitndny
the Thermometer fell, and a cool wind blew
throughout the day.
On Monday morning, ratn commenced fall
ing, and never ceased until Tuesday morning.
It descended very heavily,and vas accompanied
with a high wind.
The Court of Coinmnon Pleas is still in ses
sion, and many cases remain to be tried.
We are indebted to the editor of the Hamburg
Republican, for an extra, containing important
intelligence from Mexico.
The Edgefelod Rail Road.-We call particn'
jar attention,to the communications :of "Vox
Populi," ani "Civis," on the subjedt of a Rail
Road from this village, connecting wiihr the
Charleston road, which will be' found in our
coinmus to-day. This subject is of the atmost
importance to the prosprrity of thisa place,.thae
district generally.and we believe aconsiderable
portion of same of the upper districts. All.
would participate in some meastre.inthe great
bensfits ar' 'g .fron the "Raif-Road.
isi~id .ht s rd$ tt
regird to this matter, has piervaded ie disila
)ur ritizens, and large ctipitalists.' -We thinli
t high time for them to awake, and.to be'7live
o their most vital interess. It is highly no
esay that prompt and elfcient action shuid
e taker at once. Some citizen or citizens of
levated standing and influence should take
he lead. There shoubl be concert; there should
>e unity of purpose among onr lending mnen
nost interested, and the stock wil jsnom be sub
.cried. There is abundanc of oip : in this
lslace, and in the neighborhood, to bmuld twoI
-oads, of the length of the one proposed. Noth
rg but the will and energy are wanted, fur thia <
mnterpriie. If our most infltaential men will
mut give their sanction to this wvork, it will veryI
oon be accomplished. We suggest that a
neeting of our citizens be called at as early I
day as may be practicable, and that ineas
ires bb at once adopted for the construction of I
Oar Army in Mexcico.-Our readers will per
eive, that Gieneral Taylor at the head of our
*rmy, has gained another victory over the
llexican forces, althongh with considerable l.,ss
in our side. We hail this victory ss an earn
et of future triumplhs, should the war be con
tned. There can be no doubt of our ultimate
uccess, though it may be at the cost ofomuch
ufiering and heavy expenditure. We hope
Nat the arrangemnents entered into by General
'aylor, will expedlite a lasting peace, between
ur government and Mexico.

~homas Prince, who had been charged witht
re murder of WVilliami Bailey, in this district,

fthe case, he was found guilty of manslaughter.

:100 fine, and five years imprisonmeat in the d
Onmmuon jail. His honor passed a severe re- tI
uake upon the prisoner, and made some very a
ppropriate remarks, which must come home is
ithe bosom of every citizen of the district. tc
Murders.-It is our painful duty tostate, that p
me shocking murders were recently commit- ol
d by some of our colored population in this it:
