NUMBER a 7.:
Greelr telle lomt borne truths,
soma sound . advice. - In a late
o-smW of the Tribune, he bat a leniible
talk with hii readers, on the subject of the
great national contest before us, the following
extract from which we cannot commend toe
strongly or- too earnestly to the Whigs of
Sandusky county. There is work to Be
done, and every Whig is expected to do his
duty: " ' " ' :
' Friends of Scott and Graham! nnderitend
now and henceforth that every vote t wanted
io your tewnship and county I Don't say your
State ia sure or is hopeless; for there ere
not ire Statet in the Union that are used be
yond controversy, end even in these we want
aha last Whfo vote called out Effort in Ver-
aaont ia desirable and needed, though Ver-
anont will give large majority for Scott and
Graham. So ia effort in Alabama, though
Alabama is morally certain to Tote for
Pierce and King. Enthusiasm is eontageous,
-and effort in one State stimulates effort in
others. With proper effort on the part of his
friends. Gen. Scott is not to be beaten. ,
But the cause needs work.' First, in put
tie information into the hands of all the vo
ter ; Beit, in effecting such an Organisation
-mm will secure a full attendance at the polls.
Th.re are thousands of Whigs (we say it with
sorrow) who will go a journey in October
and fad to reach borne till alter tne rresiuen
aial election in November, if they are not en
treated to do otherwise. Many will start on
-voyages of business or pleasure, who mean
te do the right thing, but, under the decep
tive plea that "Owe Vot" can make bo differ
ence, they wi! severally abstaio from voting,
mod perhaps collectively defeat the Country's
Cauae. We care little for great meetings.
feut let the Doeassents be everywhere diffused
mnd a thorough Organisation effected, and we
nay then feel assured of at Scott triumph.

Hundreds and thousands, to the Democratic

San spite would deny valor, heroism, and ex
ailed ' military services to General Scott
would rob American history of its zlorvi aad
ths Father of hie Country of honor, to serve
political ends. Let the truth be confessed.
Whatever the other merits of Scott, as a sol
dier and hero, bis name is blazoned with the
splendor of a fixed star over the record of the
two national wars. Ten pitched battles,
equal to those of Cesar, and all glorious vie
tories over British and Mexican hosts, prove
it His stalwart frame is seamed with battle-
scars, and the nation exults with just pride
in his prowes. Yet there is an American
base enough to deny him the credit of
hero, and to link bis name and claims with
those of Arnold. Shame 1 shame!
V , N. Y. Mirror.
Every honest American ton eras will reecho
the cry "shame! shame L We do not be
lieve, that, with the single exceDtion of Hen
ry Clay, the man ever lived in this nation who
was so vilely and basely and infamously slan
dered as General Scott Loathsome calum
nies were uttered against General Harrison,
and , torrents or aenuncistions were noured
out upon General Taylor, but neither of them
was ever made the subject of half as much
ooiiioquy as tne noble old hero who new
stands before the American people, a can'
didate for their auffregea. It ia truly an ex
traordinary fact and a fact unutterably dis
graceful to oar nation, that the man, who, of
all living men, has rendered the most uluatri
ous services to his country, and done the
most to promote her glory, ia, of all living
men, the most calumniated. A country that
would quietly permit this without interposing
w avenge tne wrong ana to uphold her per
secuted psinpi sna cnanpioa, would deserve
never to find another champion even in the
day of her sorest need. We do not wish to
judge harshly of men, bat we cannot under
stand now any man, possessing the least gen
erosity or justice of soul, can behold a thou
sand unscrupulous partisan cresses denoun
