If Col. Benton don't voto for Scott, bo
comes very near voting f r the Whig plat
form. He goes for a protective tariff, inter
nal Improvements, improvement of rivers
and harbors in fine ho has not concluded
to run wild because his party does It is
rather curious however, that an intelligent
mm, like him, should support a candidate
who is opposed to all these, and who will, if
one of hts leading supporters in Virginia
tells tho truth, veto Col. Benton's projects,
. even if he docs got them through Congress.
- We invito our Locofoco friends to exam
ine Col. Benton's platform and then that of
their candidato for the Presidency. - It is
not yet settled, we may add, that the distin
guished Missouriao will rote for Pierce. ' Be
that as it may, with all his "vagaries," he
comes very nearly up to the Whig platform,
and may be considered more of an acquisi
tion to that than the ether party.

Just so soon as they' find any of their parly

all the venonf of a disappointed politician
and call them "torics," "federalists," "dumb

the above paragraph should be to convince

who would apply such an epithet to those vot

The truth. Is, the " staid Democracy of this
city, "the bone and sinew" of the party, are
about tired of hearing a gallant and success
ful General slandered by a set of partisans,
who, to use the expressive language of
Charles Jared Ingcrsoll, are permitted to hold
meetings in the Court Mouse only through
the skill and energy of General Scott and
bia brave comrades. Let them talk about
tho unconstitutionality and inexpediency of
protection to American Industry, the uncon
stitutionality and inexpediency of River and
Harbor Improvements and the unconstitu
tionality and inexpediency of sundry other
of the negative qualities of Gen. Pierre;
then defend the' constitutionality and expe
diency of a religious test in a State constitu
tion and perhaps they can get thoso who be
lieve that way to come and hear them. We
tell them that every speech made by them j
against tho bravery, the skill, the patriotism, i
the honesty and the capacity of the Whig
candidate, tells against them. Well do we
remember the expression of a good Demo
crat after one of these meetings "A
tow more speeches like these, and our cause
will be ruined."

Pat arc Service. Tbe Democratic Sen
ate, in calling for a statement of tbe moneys
paid to General Scott for public services,
will not merely call public attention to the
character of thos services, but will inevita
bly provoke a comparison between the pay
and services of those who arraign him. The
battles of Chippewa and Lundy'a Lane
wereworth a hundred times the amount re
ceived by General Scott during forty years
or publio life. And such will be the verdict
of tho American people. The British and
their allies in this country may, and very
probably will, put a very different estimate
on his services. They would have .appre
ciated much more highly the ground and
lofty tumbling with which Gen. Pierce has
adorned our military annals.
But to the sort of service rendered by the
Hon. Senators, who think that Gen. Scott
has recoived too much: We find that the
following named gentlemen received tbe
sums respectively attached to their names,
for one night's quiet rest in Washington
under the pretense, false of course, that they

These sre all flaming Democratic econo
mist mighty enemies of extravagance
boisterous advocates for saving the dear peo
ple's money ! But when they got a chance
to slip their own hands into the crib, we see
with what results. These are the charges
they make for one protended night's work,
between the 3d and 4th of March,-1851
They not only had no right to this money,
but they pocketed it in the face of an express
law against it. In l849jthoy made a similar
charge; but Mr. Fillmoro then being Vice
President, and being no friend to Democrat
ic economy, the account was not rendered,
until he was temporarily Substituted by Mr.
Atchison wheii the opportunity was seized,
and that gentleman certified the account, by
which he put near 61700 in his own pocket.
In 1851, Mr. Kinir, the present candidate of
the party, being'the presiding officer of the j
rienste, certified the account although ho
refused to profit by it himself.
J nose are the scrupulous and honest gen
tleman who. aro now overhauling Gen.
Scott's accounts. They are the irreat men
the leaders the shining lights of the Dem
ocratic party; and the country may form
some idea of the sort of economy they will
practice when they como to get the control
of tho public treasury. They do not scruple
to put from $1000 to S4000 into their pock
ets for a single night's sleep. If the lea
ders, who might be supposed to have some
regard for. public opinion, are so eacer for
the spoils, what may we not expect from the
"beggarly rabble," should they become quar
tered on tne treasury The reat which dis
tinguished the Van Huren era, when "hon
est, Levi" guarded the crib,wouldbe thrown
completely into tho shade, on the restora
tion of the spoilers.

The Great Speech or Franklin Piercx
roR and Against the Tkst When U was
made. The spoech of Franklin Pierce on
tha Religious Test Ib already before our read
ers. But it turns out, on examination of
the rocorda of the convention, that thia milk-and-water,slipsy-slopsy
harratigue was made
after tho Convention had adopted the
amendment abolishing the Test! The speech
was delivered on the clause rotating to the
Property Qualification, and its allusion to
tho Test was merely incidental. Thus it
appear that Franklin Pierce, in the great
contest in convention concernii g the Bigot
Test, came up, just as he did at Moliuo del
Rey, after the battle was over, and the en
emy defeated! Then it was that he delivered
the speech which, like the Dutchman's pig,
runs on both sides of tho fence; and which,
as wo peruse it, and try to arrive at its mean
ing, puzzles us to divine in the language of
tne oiu coopiot.j -

Pierce's Statrsharsmif We hay cal
led upon the friends of Mr. Pierce to give u
soma evidence of hi statesmanship, but
they . have not yet done it. Ha has been a
member oflbe New Hampshire Constitution
al Convention, of the Legislature of tbe
same State and has been in Congress sev
eral years. In all this time, he has had plen
ty of opportunities to exhibit his peculiar
qualifications .in this way. rWhen has be
done It, or bow, or where t It is easy to In
dulge in a flight of fancy and grow eloquent
over his superior attainments or his distin
guished services never rendered, but we
want proof.' We might go off into rhapso
dies about the peculiar qualifications of our
neighbor of the Eayle as an editor, about his
high regard for troth and tbe reputation of
America's distinguished sons, but every
body would laugh at us. If men have it in
them, and opportunities are offered, U must
come out. Could Cass, or Benton, or Web
ster remain In Congress for ten years and
not leave some mark of their great minds and
some proof of their statesmanship! How is
it with Gen. Pierce!. On the same field of
action, eivil or military, other men, with
qually and less favorable opportunities, made
their impress, and why did pot Gen. Pierce!
Let us have the reason.
NatiVism. The following article Is pub
lished in the speech or Dr. Olds, has been
published a half dozen times in the Eagle tad
has been quoted frequently' by Locofoco or
ators, a coming front a Bueynis Whig pa

"Show me a Dutchman if you can, who is
in favor of any good. Not one. They are
enemies of our Government unfit for any
moral debauched drunkards a pest to so

. We charge It boldly that the above was
written by a Locofoco, that it never came
from a Whig, and if it is denied we have the
documents to prove it. It only proves what
we have long since charged. The Germans
of that place would not support him, and he,
like hundreds of others of the same stamp
would act in similar circumstances, abused
them because be could, not use them.
Invasion or Cuba. It is stated that ar
rangements are actually making for a pub
lic meeting in New York, with a view to en
list the active sympathies of the people in
favor of the renewed attempt at revolution
in Cuba. The meeting will be held at Me

If the Locofoco leaders had been able to
obtain a hobby-horse for this campaign, they
would be in a much better humor with them

without some false issae, by means of which

Gen. Pierce at the Battle or Chf.ru
busco. There Is some dispute whether Gen.
Pierce was In tho battle of Cherubuaco or
not. Let us take his own account, and that
of Gen. Shields. Read these and then judge
which la tbe most likely to know and" state
the truth. Gen. Pierce says:
. "Arriving at a ditch, which it was impos
sible for my horse to leap, dismounted and
hurried forward without thinking of my in
jury, at the head of my brigade for 200 or 300
yards, when turning suddenly on my knee,
the cartilage of which bad been seriously
injured. I fainted and fell upon the bank, in
the direct range and within perfect reach of
the enemy'a tiro.. That I escaped seems to
to me now providential."
Remember, this is what Gen. Pierce says
of his own operation. Now let us see what
Gen. Shields' says of the matter. He says:
"As we (he and Pierce) approached the
enemy's position we encountered a dcen
ditch or rather a deep, narrow, alimy canal,
which had been previously used for the pur
poso of irrigation. It was no time to hesi
tate; so we both plunged in. The horse I
hsppened to ride that day was a light active
Mexican horce. This circumstance oper
ated in my favor, and enabled me to extri.
cate myself and horse, after considerable
difficulty. Pierce on the contrary, was
mounted on a large heavy American horse,
and smm end horse both tank down and rolled
over in the ditch. There I was compelled to
After struggling there, I cannot say how
lonrJie extricated himself from his horse and
hurried on foot to join hit command, then closely
esujagea in a aesperate con met witn tne en
emy; there he remained till, overcome with
suffering and exhaustion, he sank to the
ground and was carried alt but lifeless from
tne Bold." .
It is not our business to reconcile theso
two statements. We regret.that the claim
ol heroism and generalship for the Locofoco
nominee, makea it necessary for the poople
to examine into those matters at all. Cw,
Consumption op Gold. The following
curious statistic relative to the cosksump
tl'on of goW, were stated in a lecture lately
delivered at the Geological Society of Lon
don': ' : , .
Tbe entire amount of p-old in circadatioa.
i said to be 48,000,000, of which the wear
and waste is stated to be 8J per cent an
nually, or 1,680,000.' The consumption
of gold in art and manufacturca is aa fol

States, 500,000 Total 6,050,000.

On the 14th day of June, 1845, it seems
that an Oregon Convention was held, of
which an account is given in the fytglc of the
19th following. ' It seems that a special In
vitation waa made to the Whiga to be pres
ent, to resolve upon "54 40 or fight" and
that only a few of them were willing to stake
their standing upon the reputation of the
Locofoco Administration. The Eagle be
comes rabid and cries out: .'. '
"A a opportunity was offered them to show
that tbey are better Americans than- the
whig editors who advocate the British aide
of the Texas question better patriots than
the tories of the late war and Revolution,
-who like the leading whigs of the present
day, supported the grasping rapacity or the
British-put they refused to accept the boon ;
they refused to enroll themselves in the glo
rious and honorable ranks of Freedom. We
are not disappointed, for we have little faith
in the magnanimity or patriotism of the lead
ing whigs of the present day." . .
We place this upon record for various reas
ons. - In the first place to show that the
men who talked this way and afterwards de
fended the Administration which disregard
their opinions, were, according to thoir own
showing, "supporters of the grasping rapac
ity of the British" "no better patriots than
the tories of the late war and the revolution"
and are now engaged side by side with
tbe London Times, the Liverpool Timet and
other British papers, laboring to make Amer
ica dependent upon Great Britain for her
manufactures. In the second place, to show
that they haveno cause to complain of the
terms of our correspondent w ho is justly harsh
indignant that England should have "allies"
in this country; and in the third place, to'
refesh their memories with these "old docu
ments." Chippewa Club. The Court House was
crowded last evening with enthusiastic
Whigs, to hear a speech from William E.
Finck, Esq., of Somerset,' and every one
went away highly pleased with the speaker
and tbe speech. In State and National af
fairs, he showed up the inconsistency of Lo
cofocoism and their utter disregard of prom
ises made to (lie people, and closed with a
beautiful and deserved eulogitnn upon tho
Whig candidate for the Presidency. It is
hard to' compare a Locofoco now' with one
even a few years back. It can't be done.

Illinois and Wisconsin Railway. 'A
company has been organized at Chicago un
der the above title, and has a strong Board
of directors, to construct a Railway from
Chicago through Wisconsin to the Winne
baga Lake and Lake Superior, with a branch
from Janesville to Madison, and thence to
the Falls of St. Croix, by the wsy of La
Cross and tbe Willow River, being more
than one thocftand miles in length, and trav
ersing the most productive parts of Wiscon
sin. "It will furnish a shorter route, with
easy grades, from Chicago-to Dubmpm.than'
can be had by any other proposed line."
The company have purchased their iron and
machinery, and any they have 107 miles to
the Illinois State lino, under contract.
They will have some thirty miles of the line
run from Fon du Lac South this fall, and
tho work from Chicago will be pushed vig
orously. The company are completing ar
rangements for large freight and paasenger
stations on the east sid-3 of the river at Chi
cago. William Sloan is President of this
company, and R.J. Walker one of the Di
rectors. t'in. Goj.
A Row at Tammany Hall. Somo of the
democratic party of New York, are again at
logger-heads; on Friday night, or rather Sat
urday morning, a disgraceful scene occurred
at Tammany Hall. It appears the General
Committee wi a in session until & late hour,
endeavoring to compromise a difficulty in
relation to the appointment of Inspectors of
Election, when they were not only over
awed and dispersed by a gang of rowdies,
who broke into the room at half past two
o'clock in tho morning, butsomeofthemem
bera barely escaped with their livea. One
gentleman, Mr. John Quinn, of the nine
teenth ward, was severely injured, and Mr.
Daniel Sickles had to risk his .life by throw
ing himself out of a back window. The
rowdies wero in the interest of the barn-burner
faction, and bore down the majority of
the committee. . .
Conspiracy Discovered in Italy. A
letter from Rome gives some details of the
recent arrests of members of the revolution
ary committee, residing in Lombardy, Tus
cany and the Roman States. It appears
that the Austrian consul, at Genoa, hearing
of the death of a "person, a Lombard by birth,
went to place seals on his property, when it
was found that the deceased was one of the
paymaster of the conspiracy. Tbe mode of
carrying on the correspondence was also dis-.
coveredbeing by means of silk handker
chiefs the color of which ' disappeared by
chemical washing, the writing being brought
out by the same operation In conse
quence of thia discovery various arrests have
taken place at Fonarar and other places in
the Roman States. .

Taki.no Care or his Friends The edi
tor of the New York Dutchman don't appear
to have a very good opinion of his political
associates who are now engaged in the work
of defamation. He thus hi to off two or
three of their buse-allegations: -
"A few days- lince; the Pciwsjlvanian

after having the first fire.-"

As a Democrat, we shall vote for General
Pierce for President. We do this, not be
cause we consider Gen. Pierce a more patri
otic man than Gen Scott, but aimpiy because
we have a greater admiration for his politi
cal platform. That man nover lived whoso
love of country excels that of old Churubus
co. The writer that would charge Winfield
Scott with cowardicehoukl go a step farther
and hold up Washington as a' traitor, 6f
Franklin for an idiot. Such attacks as those
made by the Pennsylvanian will only result
in injury to the democratic party. If that
paper is really in favor of Gen. Pierce, the
fewer flings it contains at General Scott's
bravery, the better. In the history which
will be written fifty years hence, the name
of Winfield Scott will ocenpy'a pbsitJotr sec

France. Among the various episodes" 6t
therteoftlie 15th, may be mentioned fl'ie
marriage of fourteen young men and the
same number of young girls, chosen among
poor bnt respectable families ia the twelve
arrondissements- of Parle, and the fwo rUr

Seine. A dowry of 8,000f, besides a trous

to each married couple, . . ... ..

Michel Ney, the grandson of Marshal Ney,
and son of Gen. the Duke of Elchingen, has
entered the 7th dragoons as a volunteer.
The young dragoon is only in his 18th year.
'. The Times' correspondent says: "It is
rumored that? some untoward accident has
occurred to interfere, with some say. lo
break off entirely the President's projected
matrimonial alliance. In quarter that
ought to be well informed, H ia denied that a
rupture- has take place, tbeegh it would
seem that something ha occurred; not.
however, as I am informed, of a seribus
character. Every one Knows that 'the
course of true love never does run smooth,"
but I beleive it would be premature to say;
that it baa been definitively interrupted." ;
The Sun says it has excellent reasons for
being convinced that the long talked of
marriage between the. President and. the
Princes Wasa will newer take plboen A1-,
