The Pish Question. The Mount. Ver-
non Banner thinks that the present is a "fa
vorable opportunity" to rebuke the insolence
of John Bull and administer to him a proper
chastisement for his repeated outrages upon
,our citizens upon the high seas.' It is true,
but then we should be in no hurry about it.
The same "favorable opportunity," should
lohn Bull persist in wrong doing, will offer
itself after march 1853. Now or then, wo

tion which will declare for 54 40 or fight and

Political Changes Enthusiasm for Scott.
Locofoco papers and orators would gladly
flutter themselves Into the belief, and con
vince the people if they co'uld.thut no chang
es are taking place in favor of Scott.; Here
is one incident, out of several, which, hap
pened at the. Niagara Convention. We Copy
from the Ohio State Journal, the editor of
which paper was an eye-witness: ' .' '
"On Tuesday morning.as the Norther In
diana was approaching Buffalo, with it least
1500 people on board, there was much . en
thusiasm on board, and several speeches.
One of the speakers said that a large number
of Democrats had oome nut boldly, and de
clared they should rote for General Scott.
Near the outside of the crowd was a discon
solate looking Locofoco, who attempted to
keep his spirits up by getting into a contro
versy. Ho declared that this assertion' was
false, that they could not point out a Demo
crat who would 'vote for Scott. This-was.
bringing: matters to a test.' Instantly, , an
Irishman from Cleveland, a heavy Contract
or, and one who wields a very large influence,
mounted the chair and informed the gentle
man that he was one of that class that he
bait always been a Democrat, and that he
should vote for: Gen. Scott. . He wanted to
know what Gen.. Pierce had. ever, done that
any body should vote for him! He gave the
r,l nf thin country are beeinnhi? to discover
' . . t x .u -' tr;t(A any body should vote for hint!' He cave the
.that the. party leaders who labor for 2rt,Jw(J0 chalicnger a regolar Irish broad-
' pauper laoor ui ine . expense ui . urai vm
free labor, have not yet followed the advice
of Gen. Jackson and become a little more
. "Americanized. ., The. compliment to the
, present Administration is deserved, though
" it was not intended, and we can aBsure the
Banner1 that the honor and interests of the
country are perfectly safe in its hands, as
they will be under the coming Administra
tion of Gen. Scott.
(7"The Defiance Democrat thinks Gen.
Scott is "good enough Native American
because George C. Washington refused to
accept the nomination of that party and ex
pressed his determination to support the gal
lant Boldier. A much stronger reason ex
ists why he is "good enough Democrat," be
cause thousands of that party intend to sup"
port him. But the truth is, Mr. Washington
is no Native American, and Native Ameri.
cans refuse to support Gen. Scott. vYet
what better could we expect from a paper
which is mean enough and degraded enough
to state that Gen. Scott "connived at the
- burning of churches in Philadelphia.'! We
'pity tho party that names among its leaders
in the North West such miserable specimens
of humanity men who have a tolerable rep
utation only from the force of circumstances.
Bank Taxation. The Ohio ricayune, a
miserable eight by ten Locofoco sheet, says
that the Banks of Ohio are to about appeal
from the Legislature to the Courts, and that
they will susluin the appeal by "bribery and
corruption." This is rather an equivocal
compliment to a Locofoco Court. It docs not
call upon tho "Courts to resist these appli-
anccs, but appeals- to the people to sustain
the art Legislature. It must be fur sunken
in iniquity, to make such a request as this.
v .OiTTho Mount Vernon Banner is copying
attacks upon tho Whig party from the col
umns of the Ohio Statesman. The Bonner
iman has frequently expressed the opiniou
'" publicly, whiqh we have transferred to our
columns, that the Statesman man is a dis
honest politician and "unworthy of confi
dence." The extracts, with the readers of
'the Banner, should carry with them their own
comments. . '
A Mean Man. The editor of the Defi-
ancq Democrat says that Gen. Scott"conniv
. cd at tho burning of churches in Philadel
phia." We would very much dislike to trust
this editor in any position where ho could
commit crjme without foar of immediate de-
. toction. ...
Incidents at Niagara. Among the in
" teresting incidents at Niagara, was the pres
ence of about 250 of tho surviving officers
and soldiers of the War of 1812, and a dole,
gation of Tuscarora Indians, numbering 40,
with several old warriors of the tribe who
fought at Lumly 's Lane.
Extensive Funerals. The Cincinnati
Catholic Telegraph in noticing "the vanity
of having long lines of carriages at funerals"
makes a remark or two applicable to other
cities besides the Queen. It says:
.'.'."More money is spoilt in idle and riJicu
lous display on such occasions than would be
', necessary for the support of all the widows
and orphans in the city. When will our people
understand that in most of those instances,
whore survivors are left so utterly destitute,
the larger the funeral the deeper the shame.
. . and the greater the disgrace." , , '. ,
siufeof eloquent talk. No -sooner had he
closed, ' thd.i another Irishman mounted the
stand, andu9clar?d that he was a Democrat,
and should vote fpr Gen. Scott. The huzzas
that followed this announcement, had,
scarcely subsided when & third Irishman
mounted the chair,and Bhakiri'g J?is'St in an
excited manner at the Locofoco Piorre man,
said, "I, too, shall vote for Geiu Seoti. I
have always been a Democrat, and lam a&
good looking a man as you are, any day."
This was a clincher.' The steamer re
sounded with shouts, and the pooi1 discomfit
ed Loco left, not deBinng any farthi-r demon
strations that he was in the wr6ng pew."
. A few days ago, a stout red-faced, pom
pous man, in threadbare clothes, called at
the residenco of General 8cott. He was
conducted into the parlor, and in few mo
ments the General appeared. Mowing with
profound formality,, tho visitor . introduced
himself. , . -, . .
"lam Colonel- , of Virginia." said
he; "and I am proud to be permitted to see

"Sit down, my dear sir," said the General.
"I thank you for this friendly .viait."

"But," interrupted the General, , "let us

"Chifltewa Club" The Court House was'
crowded last evening with live and enthusi

we have witnessed there this many years.

taining also the conviction, that most if not
all of tho modern doctrines incorporated in
tho demoiyutio creed, if scquiesced in by the
people and applied to our future legislation,
would embroil our country with foreign
States, disturb our domestic tranquility, by
exciting jealousies and animosities between
tho ililierent classes, in tho different s 'ctions
of our common country, foster corruption
and frauds in our executive, Irgislutvc and

to genius and worth, by elevating to the

essential service to the state, for the period
of nearly half a century, by the performance
of distinguished military and civil duties, and

Backed Out. On Tuesday last wh'n
most of the Whigs of Buffalo were "out of

one of the principal Hotels, in their praise
of Gen. Pierce and disparagements of Gen.
Scotland assumed a great deal of confidence
in the election of the former offering, in
general terms, to back their opinions by
large amounts in the way of bets. A gen
tleman ofonr acquaintance who was sitting
at the same table, who is a thorough Whig,
listened to their bloviating for some time, de
termined to take the first bet that waa offered
in a specific or tangible form. At length
on of the Locos declared he would bet a
thousand doll are on Pierce's election. At
this our Whig friend quietly took his pocket
book and laying it upon the table announc
ed that he would "take that bet." The brag

Gen. Scott, in going his rounds, noticed a

General handed him ten dollars, and with
