"27 Ball it Rollmtf On." The Detroit
Tribune says that a Scott Club formed last
week, not over twenty miles from Detroit,
TWENTY-THREE Democrats who had up
to that time voted the Democratic ticket,
came bolilly forward and registered their
names among its list of members, and de
clare their unalterable determination to vote
for the Hero of Lundy 's Lane, and to do all
ia their power 'to promot his election:
There are many more who will follow their
example. Amongst the officers of the De
troit Scott Qlub, are three of the most prom
inent Democrats In the State. We refer to
General Williams, Col. O'Calahan and
Major Keantley. .-.;. . ,
A, Scott Club haa been formed in Lysan

95 members, all of whom voted against the
Whigs at the hat Presidential election.

tofore a firm supporter of Pjebci Sl Kiao, ha

Saturday's Tri-Weekly of that paper we ob

at its head. The -editor, is E. 8cHXUrrutB,
Esq., late of the Zu$chauer, or Erie Specta

iting and nublisVinff newspapers. He was
proscribed a few rears since in Europe, for
his libral ' principles, and condemned to
imprisonment, and his life endangered onan
accusation of treason against the Govern
ment, and he was obliged to flee for saelty
to this land of refuge. We believe his pa-

it will have, as It deserves, a large circula

A Bot Saved from Dxowrimo bt a Dog.
Aa- interesting scene occurred on Sunday
lastatHoboken. A boy- about ten years ot
age, while playing on the bank of the river,
fell in, and the current being very powerful,
he was carried along with great rapidity. Of
those who saw him fall in, not one would
risk his life in an attempt to save him.
When all hope appeared to be lost, a large
Newfoundland dog named Rolla, belonging
to Mr. Adams, of Courtland street,' New

boy ; by the collar, held ' his head above the

Ceo. Scott Is S Cetholio. Not daring, for
well knows reasons, to arge this objection
publicly, they resort to the manner we have
named with the hope of drawing off a few i
vote from Scott. Tbe trick is too shallow
todemaeh harm; ami w only allude to it
to let them know that we are aware of what
they are doing. Piud tUgittrr. ;

Catholicism, and at the close of Ids Wctures
states that Gen. Scott is a Catholic and
therefore ought not to be supported. The

solicited to pay his expenses. We . are

This energetic aud talented young Irishman
has been to Concord for some time, examin
ing the official records of that State. He
has returned to New York, and a short time
since made a speech of great power. He
has demonstrated from the records, beyond all
controversy, the following among other
propositions, viz:
I. That the Democratic party of New
Hampshire has not at any time manifested
any general or earnest desire to expunge the
odious and unjustifiable persecution of Cath
olics from their State Constitution. .
3. That the Whig party ef New Hamp
shire has not aa baa been falsely asserted
by Vice President Dallas among others
resisted and defeated the Constitutional a
mendment required.
. . Th:it : Franklin Pierce km not taken
any such decided and con'spicioiie part in
urging Catholic Emancipation as his friends
have represented. - " ' "
4. That the Whigs of New Hampshire
cast a greater proportionate : vote for that
Emancipation than the Democrats at each
of the elections when it was submitted to a
populnrvote; and "; ' ' ; ' - '
go. That the Democracy of New Hampshire
might and should (with the help freely ren
dered of the Whigs) have long since amend
ed theirCohsfitution so as to place-Catholics
oa-an equal footing with Protestants. '

Geb Butlfb's Oci.iios or G-. Scott.--General
William O. Butler, of Kentucky,
at a recent Democratic ratification meeting
at Carrolton, in that State, spoke as follows
of Gen. Scott:
General Scott is known to the nation,and
to the world; and as it is not my province
to paint Whig portraits, I would be content
to examine his position before the world
without saying any tiling of him personally,
but for the known positions we relatively
occupied in the city of Mexico, and for the
purpose or saying publicly, tbat through
out out whole intercourse, though oelicate
and embarrassing, he acquitted nimselt in
such a manner as to win uiy esteem and ad
miration.
Iu 1318, Gen. Butler was the candidate for
the Vice Presidency. After hearing the effort
made by a few of the leaders In this city, on
last Saturday evening, to dofame not only
the civil, but military character of General
Scott, one is constrained to aa. what Gen.
Butler "knows about war!"

Persobal Hobob or Geb. Scott. What
ever may be said of the bravery of the Whig
candidate for the Presidency, a qualification
wcich nearly every American, soldier pos
sesses in the highest degree, Gen. Jackson's
opinion of bis honor as a gentleman is fully.
justified by the fact that after having beeir
taken as s prisoner at llueenstown,and dis
charged on parol, he broke his parol and was
found under arms before beins exchanged
r discharged. We are assured that this can
be verified by the best evidence. Buffalo
Courier.
Yesterday we copied from tbe News a
charee'ef Cowardice against Gen. Scott.
To-day we.have from the Buffalo Courier an
accusation of tj'uhonor. The one complains
that Gen. Scott "squatted on the ground" to
avoid an adversary 's fire. Tbe other asserts
that he "broke Ai's parol" in - bis haste to
serve again against hiscouutry's enemies.
The consistency of these accusations is no
less striking than the chivalrous, patriotic
spirit' which prompts them. It is such a
glorious service to rob an old Soldier of bia
laurels, and to impute Cowardice to a Hers
whose honorable scars bear mute but elo
quent witness to his gallant bearing. Shame,
shame upon the libellers'. Miheaukie Sent.

River. Some five hundred persons were
present to witness the feat. In consequence
of the strong unexpected current of air un

of the pedal extre"mKies, was first introduced
to the surface of the water. He was not so
badly injured, however, but that be com
menced swimming towards the shore, and
was soon taken into a small boat. Hs had
an appointment to descend the precipice af
