Know Nothings Tracked of

tributed these "Know Nothing signals

mark on his boots led to the discovery
of this messenger of the McArthur
Council. Know Nothings about town
should see that their boots are not
marked. Murder will out.
We have reliable information for
the fact, that the Council here, on mo
tion of G. B. Will, seconded by the
young Shanghai editor up street, "lie-

have it beyond doubt that the last meets

Of Hamilton County.
The above named gentleman is a
son of Gen. W. H. Habriso.v, late
President of the United States; and
never, perhaps, in the history of the
Whig party, has any man received a
more hearty endowment than hag this
hian in the past week, at large meet
ings, held in Cincinnati, Chillicothe,
Columbus, Cleveland, Sandusky, and
ether points in the State. These
meetings are all preparatory to a State
Convention to nominate a State ticket
for the Whiff party, and is a move
ment that commands the influence of
all old prominent Whigs of our State.
We will publish their Resolutions next

What Free Soilers of 1818 Said
of Whig Principles.
' We clip 11 following from the
Clarion of Freedom, a thorough Free
Soil paper, of August 1818 :
TAYLOIUVTI.
We had tn awful demonstration of
this abominable thing ic out town on
Tiieailj)' and Tuesday night. Arrange
ment! had been previously male . by tlic
follower of T y lor, to uita a in
dicative to tlieir devotion to the cause
of slavery and tin very extension, fur
the Whigs, when thejr ivisli to extend
Uvrry, always promote slaveholders,
alia th casecf John Tyler, and now
Gen. Taylor. On the pole which Whigs
dedicated to slavery, h attached a ban
hit, to which we would tay:
Taylor men ! your banner wears
Two emblems : one of fame.
Alub ! tl.e other thai it bears
Kt n.ii. ils us of ycur blmn.e ! .
Tl.e white muu's liberty in types
Stands bluzoned by your stars
Hut what's the meaning of jour strip's?
Thry meun Tuylor'a negroes' scars!
At the twitch end of this pole is at
tached a twenty foot streamer, which,
when the wind blows, dashes round and
i-recks, to that one i forcibly reminded
jf Gen. Taylor's slate-whip, which digs
ill cracker into the bleeding backt ol
humanity. The streamer is red; llii
represents the color cf the slave driver's
lash, made blooJy with the gore whip
ped from tbe backs of men, woman aud
children.
As the pious and sage travelers past
this way, they make remarkt, that this
it the first town which they have r.oli
ced upou the National Koad which hat
been seized by that disagreeab'e diseate
called the puff-evil. Our town it dis
graced ill it communityis disgraced
ad the tow n council should hold a
meeting to remove the nuisance from
the place, which has been imposed upon
us by the whiskey telling whiskey
drinking, fighting, cursing, mobocratic
Whigs. But, men bass enough to go
fur slavery aud its extension, are pre
pared for every abomiuable excess.
Let the traveler, as he passes our way,
remember that in this town there is a
majority of Free Soil men, and a large
majority opposed to this "polt evil" of
Whiggery.
This was receiving Wliiegery into
the embrace of 'Free Soilism with a
vengeance; and it was the position ta
ken by Whig stumpers every where.
We heard it proclaimed from the stump
that "Abolitionism was a hellish
scheme, gotten up for hellish purposes,"
by very prominent Whig speakers.

Convention.
Reader, mark the change! A Rev
erend Gentlemen opens the Convention
by prayer, and very appropriately in
corpora tes in that prayer the following
terse:
"And Pharaoh senl and called for
Moses and Aaron, and said unto them,
I have sinned this time: the Lord is
righteous, and I and my people are wick
ed." Genesis ix : 22, 27.
Alter prayer the Convention, under
the load uf Chase, Oiuuinqs if- Co.,
hatch out a batch ot Resolutions.
Reader, just compare this Platform
with the above positions of Free Soil
ism and Whiggery in 1818, Oh 1
what a change! The Whig party in
'48 tried to swallow up Free Soilism,
but could not do it. In '55 the Free
Soil parly tries to swallow up Whig
gery and has done it!
"Come and dwell with me," as the
whale said when he swallowed Jonah.
"Come into us" says Chase, Giddinos
& Co., July 13th, 1855, and Whig.
gery was swallowed. The only ques
tion for futurity to solve is whether
Jonah or the Whig party 6taved swal
lowed the longest? For our part, we
think either of these parties sufficiently
nauseating to turn the stomach ot any
party composed of honest men, and
have a notion ol our own, that if Berv-
cd as Jonah was, the dog would havY

Another year has rolled around since
we last called the attention ot the pub

POLITICAL SPIRITUAL ANNOUNCMENT.
MENT.
Our reporter informs us that quite a
long discussion is now going on among
the spirits on the present position and
prospects ot the universal Whig party,
woolly heads and all, as to whether it s
a fit subject for the other world, or
whether its convalescence would shake
off the sins of Free Soilism, with
which it has prostituted for some few
years back! We expect to report soon
oi uie conclusion.

The Gazette and the Whig Meeting.
Eoitobs or the Advertises : Gen
tlemen: I could not have dreamed,
five years ago, that "among the changes
and chance? of mortal life,' a contingent
cy tvoulil arise, when I, as a H'Atg,
would be compelled to throw nivelf
upon the courtesy of The Chillicothe
Advertiser, defending myself against
m&iicious, ex parte statements in The
Scjolo Gazette, the latter paper rejocing
at the same time, in another party name
and glorying in what it is pleased to
call tbe "fossiliferous organism of the
Whig party." But having long since
learned and taught that "men change-
principals never," I am content that
none of the responsibility of such inhe
rent homan frailty depends upon me:-
aud if I may haply succeed in maintain
ing a consiKtenl position in the enjoy
ment of opinions adopted with some de
gree of deliberation, and destined, as I
believe, to "prevail," with the residue
composing the great body of "mighty
Truth,"! shall be quite as fortunate at
most men.
Inasmuch as the Gazette has represen
ted me as playing a part in the Whig
meeting on Saturday last, which I ex
pressly disclaim, as foreign to my prin
ciples and feelings, (viz: chocking down
free speech,) permit to give the facts as
I understand them.
So soon as Gen. J. T. Worthington
had concluded his speech, against the
resolutions of the committee, referring
to State candidates and policy, and hav
ing moved to atrike them out, and twice
called for a "second," which was vouch
safed finally from the back part of the
house, I rose, and said that "although
tbe meeting wis called for and by the
ppposers of tbe Columbus Convention, I
wai glad, nevertheless, the meeting had
listened with so much patience to his
remarkt. Such courtesy was due to him
as a long time, native citizen ol the
county, a respectable gentleman," &c.
The Gazette maliciously misrepresents
me as opposing tbe right of the ueuer-
a) to speak or make a motion.
tien. vv, had said: "Hut in rela
tion to the whole platform of July 13th
friends ini neighbors, Whigs of 1643,
J
vlio acted in 1S54 'viih the Republican
party in their glorious and earnest at
tempt to redress a gieat wrong, to keep
unpolluted by slavery the territory con
secrated to Ireedom by the solemn com
pact of our fathers in 1820, I appeal to
you as to the identity of the position of
the Republican party now, with llmlof
the Wing party at their great Conven
tion in ISM. I was a member of that
Convention, was appointed on the com
mittee to draft resolutions, aud as Chair
man ol that committee, composed of
of some of the ablest and best Whigs of
Ohio, reported the resolution adopted
by that Convention. Those resolutions
were adoped not only by the Conven
tion but by the whole Whig patty of
Ohio, w ith an enthusiasm aud an unan
imity without a parallel in our politi
cal history. They were displayed at
the head of the colums of the Whig pa
pers not only of oliio but also of the ad
joining States, aud never have they been
disowned or denied." Whereupon I
undertook to refresh the memory of my
former colleague, as to the manner aud
way in which thu "platform of 1848"
wus adopted, and asserted that the res
olutions reported to the Convention
were those of but 10 of the 19 members
of the committee which drafted them--the
tenth being the casting vote of the
gentleman himself, who was chairman
of the committee, against another set
of resolutions deemed also expressive of
the sense of the people of the State, on
tbe questions at issue, which were con
cof ted by John L. Minor, Esq.. and your
humble servant. The successful resolu
tions were penned by L. D. Campbell,
Esq., (since "Hon.") who after fighting
them through the committee, with his
characteristic pertinacity, and carrying
them by one majority, was not content
with their comparatively-moderate free
soil animus, but endeavored to press
others of more extreme and imlammato
ry tendencies, through the the Conven
tion, drawn up without consultation
with the committee, by himselfas be
said aud two or three of its members.
It is due to that great Convention too
large for any house in Columbus to
eiy, that they hooted' Campbell from the
stand and he lft in disgust rhen
the committee's resolutioni were passed
