A Letter from Major Jack Downing.
DOWKIKOVILLE, STATE OfMaINE,
. : Saturday, Sejitember 13, 1852.
, . Mr. Gales & Seaton :My dear old friends
I wish I had better news to write to you.
I'm pesky afrnid Gineral Scott is coming in.
And, nrtr all, I don't see why I should feel
so much afraid of it, especially on my own
account, for I don't spose he's a very bad
man. liut I feel bad for Uucle Joshua. His
whole heart is bound up in the post-office,
and if he should lose it, I'm afraid it would
almost be the death of him. He's had it now
more than twenty years, nnd he's more fond
of it because it was given to him by dear old
Gineral Jackson. He loves it now like one ol
his own family, and I think it would be the
hardest one of the family to part with, unless
'lis Aunt Keziah. If he were to loose ary
one of 'em, that is Aunt Keziah or the post
office, I know it would break his heart And
that's what makes me feel so bad at the turn of
things has took down this wayin favor of Gin
eral Sioitllatiy way could be contrived to keep
Uucle Jushua in the post-oflice, I wouldn't
care a snap if Gineral Scott did come in.
And 1 guess there's a good deal of the same
sort of leelin' amongst a good many of tho
Democracy. I'll just give you a sample of it.
... Tin-re's Cousin Sargent Joel, he can't live
without hurrahing for somebody as much as
two or three limes a day. He got in a habit
of it in old Hickory's time, and he couldn't
never leave it off since. Two or three weeks
ago Uncle Joshua and I was in the barn,
planning a little about getting out the voters
to the election, when all to once we heard
somebody back of the barn holler with all his
might "Hurrah for Gineral Scott." We both
started and run round the corner of the barn
as fast as we could, and who should we see
there but Cousin Sargent Joel, standing on
a stump, swinging his hat nil alone, and hol
lering at the very top of his voice, "Hurrah
for Gineral Scott," Uncle Joshua looked as
cross as thunder, and Cousin Joel colored a
little as soon as he see us, but be swung his
hat again, nnd sung out once more, "Hurrah
for Gineral Scott and I don't care who hoars
it." . ...
' "What's thai you say ?"said Uncle Joshua.
"I say, hurrah forGeneral Scott, and I don't
care who hears it," says Cousin Joel, putting
on his hat and jumping off the stump.
"Will, this is a pretty piece of business,
said Uncle Joshua, "setting such examples as
this to the neighbors. There's many a word
spoke in jeest that's turned into arnest be
fore its done with; and you ought to be care
ful how you set such hurrahs agoin. If you
once get em started, liter's no knowing what'll
be the end on'l."
"I don't much care what'll be the end on't,'
said cousin Joel.
"Why, Joe!, what do you mean?" said un
cle Joshua ; "if you are going to turn Whig
say so, and let us put you out of the syna
gogue al once, and be done with it. I want
a ph.in right up and down answer are you
going fur Giiiera! Pierce or not?"
"I spnss I shall," said cousin JoeL
"Then, why in the name of common sense
don't yon hurrah for him?" said Uncle Josh
ua , "and try nnd get up some enthusiamusy.
You ought to b ashamed to throw your hur
rahs away on 'tother side."
"Now, Uncle Joshua, I'll tell you what
'tis." said S irgent Jih-1, straightening himself
up jest as hi- used to at the head of the com-'
puny !:i -N ui.il'Cation time, says he, "1 11 tell j
you "sua l us, Uncle Joshua, i m willing toi
vote f.ir Gineral Pieree lo help yoti. keep the !
post-office, nnd I mean to; but you needn't I
nsk me ti hurrah for him, for I can't stand j
no such toni-fook'ty ns that. I've tried it,
and it won't go no how. It makes .me f.-el i
so much like digging small potatoes nnd few
in a hill. Dutwhen I get right hungry for
a hurrah, I give it to Gineral Scott, and I
find there's 'refreshment and nourishment in
that, omi;lhing like real meat ; it makes mi;
feel ns it used lo when we in the loudest
hurrahs for (iiuer.al Jackson,"
Uncle Joshua turned away, looking rather
tlown in the mouth, and saying, "he did'nt
know what the world was coming to."
As net.r as I can find out, there's a great
many Democrats in this State, and other pla
ces too, that's in the same fix as Cousin Sar
jeiit Joel Downing; they've tried to hurrah
for Gineral Pierce, and can't. Over lo the
raisin of Squire Jone's barn 'other day, nrter
! !-v "'J S." ihf'uyh. Squire Jones, who isa
great. Uemocrat, c illeil out, "now let us give
three- cheers lor Gineral Pierce." As quick
ns look they till swung their hats, and about
litree ijiim ters of 'em sung out ns lotil a
tlw-v eo.il '. h'iller, 'hurrah foa Gineral Cass."
At that Sijuiie Joiies fl w in a rage, and told
'em tii'-y was traitors to the parlr. and no
true Dem u r it would .hurrah, tor any body
but Gim-rul Pierce. Thai touched the dan
der of the rest of em, and about twenty
swung their hats and cried out lustily. "Hur
rah tor Gineral bcott and asked bquire
Jones if he liked that any better.
These things has kept Ur cle Joshua very
uneasy along back, and before our State elec
tion which come along last Monday, he got
quite narvous; and lie aint no belter yet.
We ve been in quite a stale of comboberatiou
nil the week, trying to find out how the elec
tion's gone, but ii's a hard sum to work out
I went over this morning to help Uncle Josh
ua figure up. He was sitting at the table
with his spectacles on, and the papers spread
all around him, and a pen in his hand, and a
dark scowl on his brow. He was thinking so
hard he didn't seem to know when I come in.
Says Aunt Keziah, says she, "I am dreadful
glad you've come in Major your uncle will
make himself sick working over them figures."
Says I, "Well, Uncle Joshua, how are we
''I am afraid we are coming out at the little
end of the horn, Major, said L'ucle Joshua,
and he looked up over his spectacles so pale
and melancholy it made me feel bad. Says
he, "I don't like the looks of it a bit; the
State is on the back track again towards
Wliiggery, jest as 'twas when Harrison camu
"Oh, I rnvss not," says I, for I wanted to
cheer him up as much as I could. "The liq
uor law has played the mischief with this
i h-rtton all round, and got things badly mix
ed up; but if we sift 'em out carefully we
shall find the Democrats as strong as ever."
Uucle Joshua shook his head, Savs I, "Let us
Seethe figures. Here's the returns from
ont hundred towns.all the State.except some of
tho outskirts. - Mr. Hubburd and Mr. Chan
dler, the two Democratic candidates for Gov
ernor," has together more than fifty-eight
thousand votes, and Mr. Crosby, the Whig
candidate, has a liltla more than twenty-seven
thousand. The Democratic vole is more
than double the Whig vote. ' This don't look
as though the State was going back to Whig
gcry:". , i -'
"That don't amount to nothin at all," said
Uncle Joshua; "a good many thousand of
temperance Whigs voted for Mr. Hubbard,
and a good many rum Whigs voted for Chan
dler; nnd when the Legislature cornea to
meet Crosby will stand jest as good a chance
to be chose Governor as any one of em, and
better too if the State goes over the dam the
2d of November, and you may depend it's
drifting that way. or else I've forgot how to
cipher. Jest look at the Legislature. Last
year in the Senate there was about five
Democrats to one Whig, and now the Whigs
have elected fourteen benators and the Dem
ocrats only seven, leaving nine or ten no
choice, or doubtful. And then in the House
it aint much better. Last year we had a
clear majority. And if the State goes for
Scott I believe the Legislature will go that
way too, Governor and all.
"But, may be. Uncle Joshua," says I, "the
Whigs havn't gained as much as you think
for, after all. It looks bad in the Legislature,
I see, but that may be all owing to the rum
businiss, as you say about the Governor.
"No, no, it isn't that," said Uncle Joshua,
with a- heavy sigh ; "you may depend upon it
the Mate has got a Whig r'ntt. the Uon
gressmen tells the storj and there the rum
business has nothing to do witlr il. In the
last Congress we had five Democratic Repre
sentatives and the Whigs two. Well, now
how is it ? In the next Congress thij State
has six Representatives, and the Democrats
have made out to elect three and the Whigs
three. It's jest an even balance, and a few
more of them foolish hurrahs for General
Scott will 'lip the State agin us."
"Well, we must stir round," says I, "and
try to stop this hurrah business, and may be
we can stve he State yet .If I ketch Sar
gent Joel at it again . I'll cashier him. If
Democrats can't hurrah for Pierce they
mustn't be allowed to hurrah for nobody.
But. after all, Uncle, suppose we should lose
this State, the nation is safe for the Democra
cy, j You must remember we have n large
majority of the States, and nigh two-thirds of
the members of the last Congress."
"Wei!," says he, "that don't prove whether
we shall have two-thirds or one-third in the
next Congress. If the States go on as they
have begun it will be pretty likely to be one
third. There's only three States that has
elected their Representatives to the next Con
gress yet, and that is Maine, and Missouri,
and Iowa, and only jest look at em. Three
years ago they stood twelve Democrats and
two Whigs, nnd now they stand seven Demo
crats and six Whigs. How long will it take
at that rate to turn our two thirds into one
third ? I'm afraid there's a Whig drift going
over the country that'll swamp us. . Ssilors
tell about the big tenth wave that rolls up
and citifies every thing afore it, and I'm think
ing it seems to he a good deal so in politics.
Theis was a l ig lentil wate in 1840, and you
remember whit work it made. It looks a
good deal as if there is another big tenth
wave roliing up now, to swamp the Democra
cy and upset the Congress. We've got to
have trying times. Major. I dont know
what.ll become of the connjry if the Whigs
get the upper hand." Ho said this with a
mournful epressiou that I see the tears cinne
into Aunt Keziah's eves. She.s a irood
Christian woman, and she laid her hand on
his shoulder, mid says she, "Oh, Mr. Downing,
pray, dont be, so worried but trust in Provi
dence." And now. M. Gait s & Seaton, if you can
say nay thing to encourage us, or lo relieve
Uncle Joshua's anxious min i, you would do a
great kindnes to our old friend,
EAJOR JACK DOWNING.
. What the West may Expect.
The oi guns of the Virginia Democracy have
told the West what it is to expect on the
subject of Harbor und appropriations with
Pierce as President , They say he would
veto any bill granting aid to carry on Inter
nal Improvements, and with a candor which
is mre among Locofoco politicians, have de
clared that al! the antecedents of his public
life will compel him to such a course. Mr.
VeSaBle, of N. C, in his public speeches in
favor of Pierce takes the same ground, and
declares that with Pierce President no Har
bor and River bill can become a law.
The New York Evening Post, the Pierce
organ of that city, speaks in a tone equally
ii -stile to Western interests. It characteri
zes the ruil-way grunts of public lands and the
Harbor and River iippropiialions ns amongst
"the most fatal heresies" of the Whigs, and
such as cannot be approved by a Democratic
Congress with a Democratic President.
Hear the Evening Post! It says:
"The Democratic party, with Frank Pi"rce
as President, havn't been in power in Con
gress, if they had, we have not one particle
ot doubt that a very considerable proportion
of the expenditures referred to would not
have been made. It is true there has been a
Democratic majority in Congress, bul the hon
est and faithful of both Houses have been ob
liged to struggle against an Executive patron
age amounting annually to over 50,000,000,
wielded by a President who lias been brought
up from his youth to war upon the economi
cal and strict-construction policy of the Demo
cratic barty. It is not surprising, in the great
confusion of parties to which the recent sec
tional controversies have given rise, and which
have bronght inta public life multitudes of
men who have bad no available merit but
their obscntity or their political flexibility to
reccommenu them, that enough pratessmg
Democrats should have been found to give
the Whigs the control of the national treasury.
Had the patronage of the- General Govern
ment, however, been in fit hands, had the Ex
ecutive possessed sufficient principle and firm
ness to enter imon and overturn the tables of
the money-changers, and drive them from the
Capital, we have no doubt that he would have
been sustained by every Democrat in Con
gress. Had Gen. Pierce filled the executive
chair during the hist session, we are justified
by all his antecedents in saying he would
have frowned effectually upon the unexam
pled corruption which tainted its legislation,
and especi ilK- that part ofit to which we have
more pi ticulai ly referred."
We commend the language of the Evening
Posttolhe consideration of Western Hirbor
Improvement Democrats. It plainly fore
shadows what the West mny expect should
their rotes place Frankliu Pierce io power.
The Other side of the Question.
The Irishmen in New Hamshire" are nof
satisfied with General Pierce, or with . hit
course on the Catholic test question. Some
days since, the Locofocos paraded the names
of thirty-six Catholics, staling that thoy were
under profound obligations to him for his ef
forts to procure the abolition of the test in
the constitution of that State. ' It now turns
out that no such feeling exists among the
Irishmen there, and that at least a portion of
the names attached to that instrument were
forged. We ask the careful reading of the
following articles, which place this whole sub
ject in its proper litrhtV
The Irishmen in IVcw Hampshire and
ueneral Franklin Pierce.
From the New Hampshire Statesman, Extra. '
Concord, N. H. Saturday, Sept 25, 1352.
Soon after our paper went to press, yes
terday, we received the following communi
cation, which we issue this morning in an ex
tra from. We postponed a communiration or
two Irom our. last paper to next week, giving
evidence that the adopted citizens and our
countrymen generally in this vicinity were
grieved at the course which some of their
friends had adopted, end which , others were
made to adopt, by having their names used
without their knowledge or approbation. We
have felt confident the letter with "30" names
to it did not correctly represent the feelings
and views of the Catholic citizens of Concord
and vicinity, nor, indeed, those of the State
generally. , We ask attention . to what fol
lows: TO THE SONS OF THE "GREEN ISLE."
Whereat, An article appeared in The New
Hampshire Patriot, dated at Concord, Au
gust 13,1852. over the signatures of thirty
six Catholics of this town, many of whom, we
are credibly informed, knew nothing of their
names being used until they were in print,
representing that they, and Catholics of New
Hampshire generally, feel deeply indebted to
General Pierce for his f upport, iu and out of
the Constitutional Conveution, to the propos
ed amendment to the Constitution, remov
ing the Anti Catholic Test therefrom and
whereas, no credit is due in this particular to
General Pierce, or the party in the State
whose candidate he is for the Presidency, it j
is deemed proper to put forth the following
paper: - . r. i
We, Catholic ctttizens of Concord Bnd vi
cinity, feel that we are wrongfully marked for
proscription in - matters political, when the j
spirit of the age is favorable elsewhere to re-'
ligious toleration; and we think the party in
power in this State has shown an indifference
to our tights highly censurable, inasmuch as
no honest efforts have been made by ihera to
remove the impediment which bars Catho
lics from holding, under the State Govern
ment, places ot profit, honor,' influence and
responsibility; and we have yet to learn that
General pierce, who seems so solicitous lo ob
tain the votes of people of our faith for the
high office he seeks, has ever uttered a word
in utir f-ivoi, save just at the close, of a Con
cord Town Meeting, in 1852, when the ques
tion had already been decided against us in
the State, nnd also in Concord itself, . . . .

merit our support Indeed, in 18o5, his own

Concord, September 53, 1852,
Let the following affidavit speak to honest
men, everywhere, and tell them, what means
are employed to manufacture public opinion
for a candidate who has become somewhat
identified with "Certificates.1' We hear of
others of the "38," who declare they knew
not that their nsmes were used until they
were in print, who never consented that their
names should be of the "36," yet, as. they
are employed under those who are very real
in their support of General Pierce, they have
not yet bejn urged to certify to the improper
use iriado of thair names, as ' the three who
sign the following are amply sufficient to .fix
the character of the whole transaction:
"We the undersigned. Catholic citizens of

What 1ri3UMsh Think. Here is some
testimony of the estimation in which Frank
Pierce and the Locofoco party are held by
Irishmen, with regard to tbe religious test: '
- Nashau (New Hampshire) Telegraph.
We, the undersigned Catholic eitizens of
Nashua and Nashville, having seen a state
ment signed by some thirty- six of our coun
trymen. in which it is stated that the Demo
cratic party in this Stale has uniformly been
opposed to what is called tbe religious '.'test,"
and that the Democratic nominee has exerted
himself to erase that odious feature from the
Constitutuliun ; we feel it our duty to say
that the statement we believe is calculated io
mislead the public, and particularly our coun
trymen, inasmuch that tbe. Democratic party
alone is responsible for its retention in the
Constitution; and that General . Pierce has
never, to our kuowledge, done anything upon
that question to recommend him to the Cath
olic voters of this State;, while on the other
hand, the Whigs of .these two towns have,
uniformly been in favor of striking out, and
voted by 1-trge mejorities in favor of its aboli
tion : . -'.-:.'; . i . ... -.

candidate fjr the Presidency, aud stood now
in relation lo them alone in lite light of com-mander-in-

a citizen disconnected with politics, as a gen

battles lo victorv, who has . rendered many
important civil services to the country if
they were called upon under these relations
to express an opinio of him, would it not be
highly laudatory ;ould it not be kind and
L'em-rous; would it not be with a desire to do
justice to ids character; would it not be thanks
