I Ah Everlasting Candidate. In a stump
speech mad by Joseph A. Geiger some ten
yearg ago, he jocosly remarked that Dr. Olds
had from policy exhibited some maiden coy
ness In being brought out for office, but that
after once being successful, he cannot be
choaked off that he was like the Dutchman
with his pig, who had to pull his ear out to
get him up to the trough, and then pull his
tail out to get him away from it. What was
spoken in levity has resulted in prophecy.
The Dr. began In the Legislature, went into
Congress, and although he promised faith
fully when last the candidate, not again to
obtrude his services on the party, yet he
holds on like "grim death to a dead nigger,"
and refuses to give UP nis place. The pig's
tail is kept well greased, and your Smiths,
end Martins and Neils may seize hold, but
the harder they pull the more violent will be
; The Democracy had better make him their
perpetual nominee, for if he attempts to get
the nomination and fails, woe to the Democrat
by whom he is superseded. Let him take
warning from Wm.'Medill. Circleville Her.
The time before the last, the Dr. promis
ed not" to be a candidate; bet the last time,
he said that the first two years w?re devoted

The August Elections. Tho Cleveland
Herald summing up the result of the August
elections and showing that the victory claim
ed by Locofocoism in North Curoliua is no
victory at all, adds:
- "Now look at young and gallant Iowa.
Whut is the matter there! Isn't it "thnt
ball!" and do you think von can stmt ill
One Whig member of Congress cortain.and J
probably the entire Congressional delega
tion Whig, with good prospect of a Whig
Legislature, giving us another Whig Sena
tor in place of Hon. G. W. Jones!
Then Missouri! How does it happon that
the only two Simon Pure Locofoco members
of the present Hdiiee of Representatives are
beaten by two straight out Scott Whigs!
Locofucoism it would soem is almost eradi
cated from old Missouri; for the delegation
in the next Congress will stand two Whigs,
two Benton men, and Col. Benton himself.
In addition t all thin, the rumor seems to be
current that Old Buliion will soon declare for
the Old Thunderer of Luudy's Lane!
To our friends everywhere we say, these
arc auspicious indications. Only let the
same - spirit pervade the great Whig party
which now animates it, and a victory worthy
of our great Chieftain and our cause, will as
suredly reward us." .
The Queen of England. The National
Intelligencer is :. publishing copious extracts
from a very interesting series of "Family
Letters from an American Lady in Europe."
The writer thus speaks of the Queen; and
her description is worth a hundred of those
which are written more carefully for the pub
lic eye. She speaks of her Majesty as she saw
her at the Opera:
"The Queen, Prince, and attendants were

A New Nose. Mr. Edward Clarke, of
Pittsburg, published a statement describing
anew nose, made for him by Dr. Pancoas
of that city, to supply the one he had lost
some 16 years ago. A niece of flesh from
the forehead was sewed into the cheeks; a
gutta percha mould of his father's nose was
placed over it to give it the proper shape, and
gold tubes were inserted for the nostrils.
He says he has now a new nose, sound and
well-formed, with the senses of feeling and
smell as fine as they every were.
North Carolina. The returns show that
Reid is from 30 to 100 ahead of his ticket in
almost every county, and has carried sever
. al counties which elected Whigs to the Leg
islature. Generally, (says the New York
Tribune,) the vote is heavy, though in Guil
ford, and some other Whig strongholds, it is
otherwise. We doubt that there is another
man in the State that the Opposition could
have chosen Governor. .

Indian Corn and Irish Potatoes. The.
English papers last received represent the
sudden re-appearance of the potato rot.
The signs were doveloped immediately after
the great thunder-storm of July 23d, the
leaves and steins in the vicinity of London
appearing withered and burnt. A Livorpool
paper states tr-t in that neighDorhood the
disease, in all c es, has been unusually rap
id in action; tubers which had been perfectly
sound ten days before, had since been cutoff
by the blight. No report, as yet, ot the pro
gress of the disease in Ireland.
Should the visitation ot tins potato rot
prove a general one to Great Britain and
Ireland, there will be increased demand Tor
Indian corn from this during the full and
winter, and the growing crop in many sec
tions of the West . is not as promising as
usual. . The supplies of corn now in London
and Liverpool are light, and the shpments
from the United Estates have been nearly

Terrible. Some upstart, who it appears
was once an officer of tho army, has a com'
munication in the St. Louis Democrat tra
ducing Gen. Scott. He institutes several
queries as to what induced the Whig Con
vention to nominate the General. Among
others is '.his:
"Was it the wisdom, philanthropy, and
soldier-like General order No. 53, of 1842,
in which he recoenized the right of the sol
dier to correspond directly with the common'
der-in-chiefqf the army, without the delay of
submitting a grievance to his company, post,
regimental or department commander!"
Grave oflence, this, to allow common soldiers
to make direct complaint to the commander
in-chief of abuse ol their rights and persons
by subordinate officers! Shouldn't wonder
if thousands of these same "common soldiers'
recollected this and other kind attentions of

(Nov. 34, 1798,) a committee was appointed

way for other victories in which General
Scott nobly distinguished himself.

the remark of Gen. Scott "Let us die,

defeat of the American arms, should forever j
hereafter hold their peace about the Tories
of. the Revolution or the Federalists of the
last War with Great Britain. We commis
serate all three . classes. Selfishness, with
them, is a more powerful motive than patri
otism. In precisely the same connection, we
would as leave applaud a remark of this
kind about the retreat of Washington or the
capture of the Chesapeake, as the surrender
otQueeustown Heights, and no speaker who
has any regard for the patriotism of an A
merican audience would presume thus far
upon their forbearance.
We are satisfied that the Democratic mass
es will not join in any such movement, des
tined to tarnish the lustre of American arms
and destroy the reputation of their most dis
tinguished military commanders. They have
too much putriolism for that. And we have
hopes that a speech, the first portion of
which was aimed at pulling down Ameri
can manufactures and building up those of
Greut Britain, and the latter portion calcu
lated to decry American heroism and exalt
that of the English soldiery, will have an op
posite effect from that designed by the speaker.

(7 We find the following anecdote of
Gen. Scorr in tbe National Intelligencer.
It is communicated by a Tennessee corres
pondent, for whom Uie Editors vouch:
"Some years after Uie war of 1812 waff
concluded, Gen. Scott, at Cincinnati, met.
with Capt , who had served with, him
on the Canada frontier in that war. At its
close, Capt. E left Uie army, highly es
teemed by the General and his officers for
gallant conduct and amiable qualities.- At .
this meeting with his comrade, Gen. Scott
was impressed with a belief that Capt. E
was in destitute circumstances, and at once
felt a desire to extend to him some relief;
but knowing Capt. E to be rather sensi
tive, the General consulted with i s.
Esq., the co-editor of a leading journal in
Cincinnati, as to the best mode of affording
substantial aid and comfort to tbe Captain
and his lamily. They concluded to consti- m
tute Mrs. P sole agent, with discretions-
ry powers as to mode and means, to carry
into execution the benevolent intentions of
the General. Mrs. P cheerfully accept
ed the trust, and immediately searched for
and found the humble dwelling of the Cap
tain's family. Under the pretext of procur
ing a seamstress, Mrs. P ,with the tact
and rrace of a well-bred lady, perceived
. - . . - i
their great distress, and soon ascertained
the full extent of their present and pressing
want. Without delay, and at the General's ,
expense, Mrs. P procured all the neces
saries and comfort that she.as a good house
wife, thought their condition required, and
sent Uie articles to them by a messenger,
who was directed not to answer questions,
but merely say he was ordered to leave' the
things there. Capt. E soon after ob
tained profitable employment, and subse
quently removed to another State, where he
practiced law successfully. In 1S40 he was
a member of the Legislature of that State,
and in 1841 the writer of this met the Cap-.
tain, and was informed by hiir that his con
dition was comfortuble and easy."

urday, July 31, 1352. Two years ago last
March a most uncomfortable party was drag
ging through Canada, between Stony Point
and Chatham. Free Trade had gone against
Internal Improvements, as it seems bound
to do this side the lines. Our conveyance
was a springless nondescript, through whose
tattered curtain, the rain threatened to driz

lights in our vehicle, no stars in our sky,
and for miles we had been toiling through
water nearly up to the wagon-boxes. It.
required considerable faith in the horses, for
as lar as our eyes could see, ana a goou oem
further, was water, water. Suddenly the
driver broke the gloomy silence with " I
wish I had old General nere, I'd tane
him such a ride ns he wouldn t lorget in a
hurry." . -
Marveling probably what weighty offence
could have provoked such vengeance, the
gentleman questioned the angry John, and
from the General in question went on to,
other Generals, under whom he had served
in the Mexican war. Coming at last to our
