rises from our midst, mingling with the waves
as they dash' against the banks and Are brok

numerous lights proceeding from ' the tenls

Wht Dosa rr msam? We learn, upon
good authority,' that (len. Cass, on Wednc-s-tlay,
gave a dinner to some of his political
friends, but that, for some' unexplained cause.
it neyleet' d to send an invitation to Senator
Uoityiastf What does it mean! We also
learn that during his speech in the afternoon.
he referred so frequently to the -charge of
"Old rigytsm which Uouglass had preferred
against him, that the "Young liiunt" who was
sitting by his side, left the stand with signs
of marked displeasure. The little' evidences
of ill feeling and jealousy amopgst our op
ponents so much to be regretted, if not really
.The above copiod from the Detroit Tribune.
The circumstances were communicated to us
direct after their occurrence ; but they were
so nearly private in their nature, that we did
not feel at liberty to make them the subject
of public remark. - The omission to invite
Docqlass, is a significant and rather curious
fact. Gen. Cass is a thorough man of the
world, ou fail in all the eommities of social
intercourse, with views sa liberal and enlarg
ed aa to place him above the petty influences
of party associations. . He would not omit to
offer the hospitalities of his house (o a gentle
man because of any merely political difference.
The slight Io Docolass is therefore the more
pointer), and imports a feeling of bitterness
and detestion too strong to be overcome by
any considerations of policy. We regard it
as proper and becoming on the part of Gen.
Cass thus to rtsnifest his self-respect mid bis
sense of Douglass's insidious and unhandsome
course in the preliminary canvass for the Pre
sidency. Douglass professed the warmest
friendship for the General, while he was hard
at work with Young America, trying to cir
cumvent him. : -
' Tbis Looks Rebellious.
The See Bote, a leading German paper of
Milwaukee, publishes an exceedingly well
written statement of the cause which induces
it to hoist the banner of General" Scott, and
urge his election upon its readers. : The fol
lowing extract will show its spirit:
, We know that by far the majority f the
German Catholics share our viewe. We sol
emnly declare that as Christians, Catholics
and Patriots, we feel bound to support Win-
field Scott, and to do our utmost to aid his
cause. Franklin Pierce is doubtless a good
hearted, honest man, but the Democratic par
ty, of which he is put forward as the chief,
is undeniably responsible for the Blue Laws
of New Hampshire, and we do not care to
sustain a leader of bigots, even though he
may not subscribe to all their opinions.
Winfjeld Scott ia called a Namist and Anti
Catliohc, but these charges are lies and- so
Known to be by the men who ulter them, and
it requires more than a retracted letter to
make men believe the contrary. Franklin
Pierce, whatever merits his friends may claim
for him, is compared with Winfield Scott,
whose fame and integrity are emblazoned
over the whole world an obscure individual,
and we can be tinder no conceivable obliga
tion to artist in his elevation to dignitr, for
which chance made him a candidate, at the
expense of a Hero who owes his nomination
solely to his desert. Kail away, then, ye
Democratic demagogues,, because, we cast ofl
your shackles! . lour taunts and praise
affect us equally little, ana when you tell tis
we mutt not forsake your pnrtv, because it is
sinking into decay, through roguery and in
fidelity, we answer wa will forsake it. '
t3T Gen. Pierce went to Contrres. and re
signed because he found himself unlit for it.
He joined the army, and resigned bccaue he
found himself unlit for that too. It is said
that evtry man is lit for fe-methiii-r or other.
and we suppose the Democrats think that Mr.
Pierce, inasmuch as he isn't fit for anything
e!e' must neceesarily be fit for tlje Presiden

Tub Gardiner Claim. From the Report
of the Committee of the House of Represen
tatives on this claim, of which we obtained a
copy at a late hour last evening, we make the
following extract, which ia all that relates to
Mr. Corwin'a connections therewith r
In relation to the second branch of the in
quiry, the connection of the Hon, Thomas
Corwin, the present Secretary of the Treas
ury, with the said Gardiner claim, the follow
ing facts appear from the testimony upon the
points directed by the resolution to be investi
"In May. 1848, the Hon. Thomas Corwin,
then a member of the United States Senate,
was employed as counsel - in the Gardiner
claim by Hon. Waddy Thompson, the original
counsel of Gardiner, upon an agreement hat
Mr. Corwin should have for his fee five per
cent, on whatever sum should be awarded to
Gardiner by the Commissioners. In Febru
ary, 1 850, Thomas Corwin, in company with
Robert G. Corwin, purchased one forth part
of the claim of Gardiner, and this erne-fourth
part of said claim was assigned on the 1 3th
of thatmonth to W. W. Corcoran, Esq., who
loaned money to the Messrs. Corwin to pur
chase it, and held the claim for Messrs. Thomas
and Robert G. Corwin, in equal shares, as col
lateral security for the payment 'of the loan.
The Messrs Corwin paid 22,000, and relin
uuished theii fees on the fourth part of the
claim purchased by them; and paid a part of
bdward Curtis fees what amount does not
appear as the consideration for the purchase.
The Hon. Thomas Corwin resigned '''8
seat in the Senate, and accepted the appoint
ment of Secretary of the Treasury in the
month of J idy, 1850. In the same month
and previous to his going into the Cabinet of
President rill more as Secretary of the Treas
ury, a sale of his fee interest in, and also of
his half of the one-fourth part of the Gardiner
claim, was negotiated through the interven
lion of tiov. John Younj;, of Jew York, Io
George Law, Esq , of New York. From this
time the said Thomas Corwin refused to act
as counsel, or consult with the tler counsel
who had been associated with him in relation
to the same, and took no further part in the
prosecution of thesaid Gardiner claim. The
assignment of his fee interest and his interest
in the one fourth part of the Gardiner claim,
and all his interest i all other claims be-fore
the Hoard of Commissioner, (was execut
ed by Thomas Corwin to Jacob Liltle, of
New Yoik. in November, 1850, and the
money for the purchase as then paid bv
George Law, to who the assignment to Jacob
Little was at that time transferred.
"The money for the sale, $30,357, was re-
ceived by Thomas Corwin, and on the 23d of
November was deposited by him to ins credit
with &! ssrs. Uorooran & Kijgs. ao testi
mony has been abduced before the commit
tee proving, or tending to prove, that the Finn,
Thomas Corwin had anv knowledue that the
claim of said Gardiner was fraudulent, or thai
false testimony or forged papers had been, or
were to be procured to sustain the same.
Tbe Effect of Gen. Scott's Election in
Extract mou a letter or ak American
Traveler, dated London, Sept. 6, 1852.
"The Presidential election excites much
interest on this side the Atlantic. From the
sympathizing tone of the British journals, one
would think that the welfare of bngland de
pended upon the election of Gen. Pierce. The
difference between free trade in a country re
bundant with wealth and luxury, and at the
culminating point of its political power, and
protection in a young rising nation, with un
developed resouices and a future of indefinite
expansion, is not understood by tbe London
the effect of the election of Pierce and
King would be to discourage the growth of
our own industry, and to place us in a tribu
tary position to arrogant Albion, it would be
as disastrous in a domestic as in a foreign
point of view, and would be regarded in Eur
ope as a sevile sacrifice of American to Dri
tih interests. I cannot believe that Yankee
spirit has sunk to such a base degree of hu
miliation, and the patriotism of '76 and 1812
is so utterly extinct that you are now prepar
ed to surrender all that was then gained by
the flood and valor of our glorious ancestors.
"The last nation to propitate is England.
She is our rival, nnd can never be a firm
friend. Moreover, the feelins of her writers,
statesmen, and people generally, nre hostile
to the United Stales; and there seems to be
a studied effort on their part to represent to
the world the workings of our institutions and
our character as a community. There is an
evident design formed in bnirland Io drive us
from the position of a rival, and to reduce us
to that of dependent and pupil. Beware lest
American name are iinconsiously used as the
instrument of this selfith ambition!
''1 am satisfied that, in the present state of
Europe, nothing could be more auspicious for
the increase of our moral influence than the
ele-clion uf Gen. Scolt His military exploits
are looked upon in Europe as among the
the greatest actions of the n;e, and had he
been a subject of France or England, he would
have been covered with honors and wealth,
and. as Sen. It and. Wellington, called to the
direction of the national destinies. Here,
much as it is desired, it is hardly considered
possible that such an illustrious man can he
set aside by h discrimnating people for Gen.
Pierce, as subordinate in capacity as he is in
reputation. The election of Sroit will be. es
teemed a third declaration of independence
of British domination, and his military e-nergy
ill give to the American Oorernmerit such
a tone ns "it needs in times like the. present,
when the great transatlantic Democracy is
capable of exerting a potential influence for
the benefit of the human race. God grant
that you may be true Io yourselves and the
Republic in lliia most important struggle."
"Tho .nanr thousands who saw Gen.
Scott pass through the streets yesterday were
filled with admiration . of his' venerable nnd
mvjestic appearance. He returned the num
berless salutations of the ladies at the doors
nnd windows at the dwelling houses withal)
the suavity, grace, and dignity of a knight of
the old days of chivalry. At the hotel a vast
number of ladies were introduce-d to him and
all were charmed with the nobie elegance of
his deportment. '

and rascality sufficient to re-publish these let

to tbem, when no name but Americus was
ever affixed to them! Gen. Scott never wrote
those letters, and his.friends have repeatedly
said so, and the attempt to thus injure him
with adopted citizens, is as base as it is cow
ardly. The men who thus traduce and misrepre
sent Gen. Scott, who has doqe more actual
service for his country than any other man
the Republic ever produced, would not hesi

That our adopted citizens may know what
Gen. Scott's views actually are, we re-publish
the following extracts from his letters and
speeches 1 In a letter written over four years
ago by him, we find the following extract:
"Certainly it would be impossible for me
to recommend or support any measure inten
ded to exclude them (foreigners) from a just
and full participation, in all civil and political
rights now secured to them by our republican
laws and institutions."
Again, in a speech nude about the same
time, to a large concourse of people in New
York, on his return from .Mexico, Gen. Scott
"You have been pleased, sir. to allude to
our adopted citizens. I cm siy th,ttliie Irish,
the Germans, the Swiss, the French, the Brit

by himself, as to the merits and bravery of

Now mark. Gen. Scott does not say that he
is in favor of the repeal of the naturalization
laws, as these locofocos would have you be
lieve, but that he will recommend a single al
teration in them ; that is, he is in favor of giv

naturalized at the end of that time. Those
who do not serve in the army or navy one
year, can be naturalized in the usual manner

JEST" So far as we have seen, almost every
Locofoco paper in the Unitee States have pub
lished the old letter of Col J. M. White, of
Florida, making charges as to Gen. Scott's
management of the Florida campaign, and, so
far as we have seen, not a solitary . Locofoco
paper in the United States have noticed ei
ther the fact that Colonel White, in a subse
quent letter, fully retraced those charges. or
the fact that a court of inquiry rendered an
emphatical verdict acquitting Gen. Scolt of
all blame on account of the failure of the -campaign
and paid a high compliment to the
wisdom and energy of his arrangements.
Wo do not care to waste ink and paper in
commenting tipon the conduct of the editors
of the Locofoco press in ibis matter. Editors
capable nf such couduct are capable of any
thing but honesty.
83" The Nashville American, a Locofoco
organ, published a statement a few days ago
from a Mr. Ryne, of Knoxville, that Gen.
Scott is a proud, haughty man. Soon after
wards, Ryne. came out with another state
ment declaring that the first had been fraud
ulently obtained from him, and that he
was determined to vote for Scott. Since
then he has made his appearance in a third
statement, declaring that the first was true,
and that the second was obtained from him
when he was drunk. No doubt a new state
ment might be obtained from him, for a glass
of whisky, eachday from now till the election.
Such are the poor, drunken wretches pick
ed up bv the L'H-ofoco leaders to put forth
statements against Gen. Scott for circulation
throughout the Uuiled States.

and I never know'd the indications of tbem -..
boat to fail. In 1840 the boats all carried
'Tippecanoe and Tyler too;' and old Tippeca

Dallas: and sure enou"h . Polk- and Dallas '
were elected. And four years ago tbe same -boats

that the flag bore the words "Scott and Gra-.

flag tells the election to my mind just as sat-'
isfactorily as if 1 saw the votes counted my
self. All them boats this - year carry , the '
names of 'Scott and Graham' flying over their .
decks; and the same boys ' that hoist them
flags will carry the day for Scott and Graham '
at the election. You see if I don't say true."
