The position of the New Hampshire De-1
! mocracy i'pon Hie religioua test in thoir con
- stitiktion, has been so well ascertained from
the records, that tho party, not being able to
raise themselves iip, aretrjing to pull others
down to their own level, Gen. Scott's lib
erality is so well known that they duro not
attempt the game with him. But having
hopes in another quarter,' they commenced
with our candidate for the Vice Presidency. ,
They made their charges without proof and
are now compelled to back out or repeat the
He.' , ' Many ol them prefer tho latter course.
They first commenced with North Carolina,
a Whig State, but the clause had been a
bolished. . So that gun waa spiked. They
' then attacked Mr. ' Graham and atated that
he opposed' the amendment.'' But if turns
out that, in 1833,. tlie. question of revising
the constitution was agitated and among oth-
or amendments the abolition of the test was
"proposed. Mr.. Graham was elected to the
Legislature as an advocate of the revision.
; A law was passed and an address issued to
the people "advocating the amendments,
which waa sighed by V, A. GRAHAM and
others. In that address was the following i
paragraph:.,: : v! v ;, . -t r I
"The thirty-second article of the constitu-
tion excludes from civil office all who may
deny the truth of the Protestant religion,
This haa no practical effect for the pluin rca-
' son that there is no tribunal established by
the constitution to determine a man's faith.
. It is an odious badge of prejudice, which the
enlightened liberality of the present day
should scorn to wear. It is an unjust impu
tation against the Catholics of this State to
. attach to them any such disqualification:
The patriotism, personal virtues aud abili
ty, and the disinterested public services of a
single individual in the State, brand with
-falsehood the idle fears that are implied by
this paper restriction. How fur it is consist-
- ent with Protestantism itself how far it is
computable wih the bill of rights, which de-
. clares 'that all men huvo a natural nnd in
alienable right to Worship God according to
the dictates of their own conscience,' we
. leave to that bigotry which would perpetuate
But this is not all. The call for a conven
tion' fuiled and the recordsshow that Mr.
Graham continued to be the advocate of the
abolition of tho test until the constitution
was finally amended and the clause stricken
OUt. - !
Can Gen. Pierce clear his skirts so well!
Can New Hampshire LocolocoUm maintain
their innocence! While mouthing"Deiiioc
racy" and prating about "equal rights and
privileges," why do they not show their faith
by their works! Why have they not long
since followed the example of Whig North
' Carolina and stricken the odious test from
their fundamental law! Their majority bus
been greater in proportion and more regular
than in tho latter State, and yet they re
main where they wero a half centui'y ago.
' The name is nothing. Any one can preach
in the name of Democracy and profess to
cast out devils, but If their works tlo not
sustain what they pretend to believe, their
preaching Isbypocricy and their professions
end in nothing. : ; ' - :! "f"
Our arguments are not addressed to reli
gious prejudices. ; The question, as we stat
ed yesterday, is merely one of political right
so far as it has' any application in this i can
vass, and we refer to it, not because bigoted
christians live in New Hampshire, but be
cause men there who preach Democracy, do
not practice it and are not what they pro
fess to bo friends of "equal rights and priv
ileges." - ' ' 1 1 .'

Cleveland True Democrat, writing from this

. This is the. calculation of a political op

from the same county. In 1848, Cass beat
Taylor 826 In Lorain, a heavy vote being enst
for Van Buren. s '

.and. recklessness enough for a correspond-
ent of such a sheet, writes that Old Demo
cratic Knox will give Pierce and King 800
majority,;.. The , beauty of the,, hoast
. consists , in the fact that tho same county
gave Cass a majority of nine hundred and
eighty. A gain of one hundred ahtf eighty
for Scott In Knox, is all wfl ask. '',"".'" :

' The man who stood Up in Congress most
able aud eloquent in advocating the declara
tion of war against Great Britain in 1812,
and who was then regarded as the leader bf
the , Democratic party, was nunicd Henry
Clay, and is the same who was afterwards tho
founder of the present Whig party,
The man who on ,the,battki field during
that war achieved more victories over tho
British forces than any other American cora
munder, wus none pther than. Winfield Scott,
the present candidate of the Whig party for
the Presidency., ,:.
It is also well enough in this connection
to remember thut Mr. Bcphakan, who, for a
long time received the . largest number of
votes except Uass.iii the Locofoco Nutional
war of eighteen liumlredand twelve t in the I
Convention, fur President of the United I
States, Was a rank Federalist during the
year 1815 delivered an oration wherein he

crutic blood in his veins, he Kuu'.d ojxn them and
let it out."
This is n pret ty party to talk about Fuler-

And it should also be remembered thut the
National Intelliyaicer, the central organ oflvot.es.
the W'hig party, was probably the warm
est and most efficient udvueuta of the war of
any paper then published. -
And likewise should it be remembered, thut
men can be found now, not connected politi
cally with the Whig party, but supporting
Pierce and King, who follow the example of

Ciblo nnd humorous illustration of the man -
nor in which falsehoods of that kind shoulJ
be treated. Turning round to a gentleman
on tho stand with red hair, arid very fair
complexion, he said, "If I were to charge
my friend here with being a negro,you would
not deny ir;':the absurdity of the charge
would be self evident. So it is with General
Scott's cowardice, the very mention of
which, is a subject fit for laughter only."

dience right down. Zones. Cour, .
Me.. Fillmore. Tho .Union has repeat
edly intimated and even averred that Mr.
Fillmore is indifferent to the Biiccess of the
Whig candidates at tho. approaching Pres
idential election. These suggestions are
iliudo in the hope of alienating his friends
from the support of Gen. Scott. -
By continual nnd uncontradicted repeti
tion this story may begin to be believed even
by those who invent und circulate it.
We take this occasion, therefore, to sny
that no man in the country is more earnest
ly and ardently desirous of tho triumph of
the Whigs and the Whig candidutes at the
npproachiug election than Mr. Fillmore.
His ambition has been abundantly satisfied
by the success' of his pulicy of peace, and
its approval by , the conventions of both
political parties. Beyond this, no new hon
ors could add to the pleasant recolLection of
opportunities conscientiously cmploycdto
preserve the peace and augment tho proa

It has been mentioned, said Sir. Walker,
to injure Gen. Scott, that the officers of the
Army were not anxious for his election.

Gen. ScoTTcame in nt the moment of vic

shouts. - He raised his arms, and exclaimed

you! You If AVE been tried bt fire and

had arms long enouyh to clasp you all in one
warm cmlrace of joy and tratitude for your

continued 5Ir.W.,,"that is the way he spoke
to us. . That ia the man who has been so a
bused, and charged with all manner of im
proprieties.. That is the man who they say
is no orator. , Now have you ever heard of
any man who could have said that better,
or more appropriately, in fewer words!"'
As to General Pierce, he (Walker) had
nothing to say. It was fiot his place to
speak against any man, for he was nn politi
1 cian. He-knew very little about Pierce,
and had seen little or nothing of bun while
in Mexico. -HvA he fell juM right about Oen
Scott, and felt sure of going right, (although
he was a Democrat, and tho Generul was a
Whig) in going far him out and out. Ho felt
that Scott was competent to make a splen

of view, but in all respects. After other
remarks delivered in the same fervent strain,
that engaged everybody's attention and ad

Save your Tomatoes. Oberlin Sept. 8,
1852. Editior Onto Farmer: A few
years ago my Tomatoes began to ripen just
in season to bo destroyed by the frost. To
secure them I pulled them up by the roou
and removed them to my cellar, placing the
roots in tho drain ' and spreading the vines
ovor the floor, and I assure you I enjoyed a
luxury for three months, by having an abun
dance of fresh tomatoes, for my half hours
worfe. - :
I think they may be secured by covering
them with straw or shavings, by making a
drain around the bed, and placing a protec
tion over them by means of stakes driven
into the ground and laying poles or boards
across, raising them 2 or 3 feet, to give a
free circulation of air. Yours, D. C. K.
