that the voters and tax-payers of the State

Gen. Scott's Pay.
Since the amount of pay received by Gen.
Scott, in the course of his long and brilliant
career, haa been reported to the Senate, in
accordance with the resolutions of Sir. Mori
wether, of Kentucky, the Loco Foco news
papers have been striving very hard to turn
the facts of the Report to some political ac
count. So far . they have not succeeded in
convincing any body that Gen. Scott has
received a cent more than he earned or de
served; and if his compensation be compared
with that pocketed by Loco Foco office
holders, and, especially, by the late Senator
from Kentucky, who consented to accept
the fragmentary portion of a Senatorial
term after it had been rejected by several
honorable gentlemen ol his own party, Gen.
Scott is in little danger of suffering from any
exhibit of the amount of pay be has received.
The Washington lb-public shows by the very
forcible comparison unnexed, how little pro
priety there ia in Mr. Meriwether's objec
tions to Gen. Scott's conduct:
"The record shows that he labored in the
Senate Ibrty-cightduy , and the world knows
that ho came from Louisville. His Scnato
rial receipts under tho two heads were

Now how does this mileage article com

Mr. Clay charged for 6(i0, and received $.448
Mr. Underwood " 740, " 592
Mr. Meriwether " 1.0U5, " 852
Mr. Meriwether came from Louisville, Mr.
Clay from about one hnndrod miles on this
aide of that city, Mr, Underwood from about
one hundred miles beyond it; yet Mr. Meri
wether charged for one thousand and sixty
five miles, when, according to the accounts
of the Whig Senators, he ought not to have
charged for moro than six hundred snd lif'y
or six hundred and sixty miles. That is
pretty well for a Democratic economist, par
The contrast doea not end here. Mr.
Meriwether has challenged Gen. S:ott's
pay and allowances, and Mr. Meriwether
shall be tried by Gen. Scott's standard:

Supposing, for the purpose of illustration,
that Kentucky and the country were blessed
with Mr. Meriwether's services lor forty-four
years, and he wore to draw pay and allow
ances for tho whole period at the rate es
tablished by himself during his short term,
the contrast of totals would stand thus:
Mr. Meriwether's forty-four years'
Senatorial service . $413,828,25
General Scott'i forty-four years'
military and civil service 290,577,13
Increase of Meriwether's pay and
allowance over Scott's $123,251,07
W will not attempt to calculate the rela
tive value to the country of the two servi
ces.' We will not draw a comparison be
tween the pay to which Mr. Meriwether is
or would be entitled, and the pay to which
the deeds of General Scott entitle him. We
will not draw a debtor and creditor account
between the Senator and the General re
spectively, and the country. That were an
easy task as it regards Mr. Meriwether, for
the only service he rendered, or pretended
to render, In the Senate, was the moving
for and the preparation of the report which
forms his own disgrace. ' That is the sole
product of the forty-eight days' lobor, for
which he charged at the rate of $25:76 per
diem. Our readers may work out for them

Latest from tub Atlantic. Mr. Wells,
of the American Express Company, return
ed from the wreck of tho Atlantic this morn
ing, accompanied by M. Mallefert and his
assistants. Mr. Wells reached tho vicinity
of the wreck on Friday morning last, on the
Columbia, with everything necessary to
raise the wreck. The preparations were
amplo oud perfect. It was found that the
huovs attached to the wreck hud been remov-
ed nearly half a mile from the spot where
they were originally placed. This was sup
posed to be owing to the heavy winds that
hail prevailed for several preceding days.
Tlio wreck was toiinrt alter a uay-ssearcn.
On Saturday, John Green, tho famous diver,
went down to the Atlantic four times. ' The
time required to reach tho vessel is four
minutes, and it is impossible for the diver to
remain more than th-ee minutes. He is
able to stay under water from nine to twelve
minutes. On the following day four more
descents were made. But he was unable to
find tho state-room in which tho Express
Company's sufe is lodged, nor could ho de
termine his exact position on the boat, ex
cept that he was abaft athe gllows frame.
The water was thick and muddy, and the
vessel covered with slime. Several lines
and chains have been mndfifnstto the boat
with buoys attached, preparatory to raising
the wreck. Bvffalo Commercial.

doubt as to the motives which govern the
English press in their preferences on this
side the Atlantic. Tho British papers ad
vocate the election of Pierce because, they
say, (and truly, too) that he will be more fa
vorable to their "Commercial Policy" than
the Whig candidate; and as thissame"Com
mercial Policy" is one of the principal caus
es of allthe woes of Ireland, no true-hearted
Irishman can do otherwise ' than oppose it,
and with it all who favor it, whether on this
or the other side of the ocean. The Irish
have now taken a proper view of the sub
ject, and will not, we think-, be soon again
deceived as they horetotore nave oeen Dy
Locofoco demagogues. No class of people
in our country are more interested in the
success of Whig principles nnd policy than
they, and our greatest surprise is that they
have not, long before this, seen it as they
now do. They have heretofore been mis
led by the word "Democracy" but will not
probably be again. Piqua Register.'
Qr-Why waa Gen. Pierce, on receiving
Scott's letter of Interrogation, like certain
ladies when called on by their friends!
Because he announced himself not at

friends more confident of his succ.es.t. The
apathy that everywhere prevailed, during
the summer mouths, is now giving way to
excitement ami enthusiasm. Our exchange

There are any number of free-soilers in

there is great probability, that the State will
go for Scott.

. Scott's trial by the Peoi-le. The elo

"acres of Whigs" who assembled in the
city of New York, to ratify the nomination
ol Scott and Graham, thus alluded to the ar
rest of General Scott in Mexico, by order of
an administration that shrunk from the task
of afterwards trying him. The issue is now
made up, and the scar-covered defendant
"puts himself upon the country" for trial by

notwithstanding ' my ' weariness, I would

member of Congress, when he was about to
leave his family for an inhospitable climate,
it was there I first knew Winfield Scott.

to the edict: returned home with but one

and the first place he entered was the little
village church, where, forgetting all his vic

and deserved more credit than Gen. Scott.
Polk drove the latter to fight; the former
went of his own accord. We have in v.in
hunted for these brilliant exploits of General
Pierce; we have examined the files of the
Eagle from the beginning to the end of the
War, and not one word of all theso daring
feats is there 'ecorded. Shields, Quitman,
Butler and others are there lauded to the
skies, but the great New Hampshire General
finds no place in the columns of that paper,
until after his nomination for the Presiden
cy. ; But after all and that for which the speak
er was expressly designed, comes the relig
ious test in Pierce's State, where his friends
claim that he moulds the Democracy to his
will. The speaker would leave the impres
sion upon Ihe audience that the test was
lost on account of the two-thirds rule. That
two-thirds rule is a terrible weapon for the
Democracy. It killed Van Buren.Cass,- flu
chanan, Murcy, Douglas, and will help to
kill Pierce. Now we wish it distinctly un
derstood that the clause for a repeal of the
tost did not get one-third of the entire vote
of the State, where Locofocoism has a large
majority. Let the friends of Gen. Pierce
explain away the force of this fact. He
either had not enough influence to rally his
party to vote for tha abolition of tho clause,
or having it, he did not use it. It is immate

who has not exercised his inflaence for the
