Irishmen ro Scott. We have before
jus the card of over a hundred Irishmen in
-the city of New York, published in the whig
paper of that city and giving their place of
Residence, in which they declare their unal
terable determination to vote for Scott
Part of their reasons we give, and commeud
them, not only to their own countrymem
Dut to all who wish to vo'e right in the pres.
wjnaew Scott ja in fuvor of principles
laid down and advocated in Ireland by such
men as Lucas, Swift, Grattan, O'Connoll
nd :JMeagher; in favor of Protection to
Home Industry; while Franklin Pierce is in
favor of the doctrines of the L ndon Times,
wnicn wouw loilow the Celt, whom he had
hunted from house and home, from the Island
of his birth into this country, and here, be
neath the very wings of the American Eagle,
make him a machine for consuming British
manufactures, and thereby make him sus
tain the very policy which had hunted him
from his home.
Because Winfield Scott is in favor of, and
Franklin Pierceis opposed to, Internal Im
provements, by which the luborer can make
money with which to commence tho world;
and of such a disposition of the Public
Lands as will secure comfortable, free and
independent homes fur the honest luboror.
That Winfield Scott has boon for forty
yeas before the public, distinguished alike
in war and peace, the great benefactor and
most beloved of soldiers, both by naturalized
and native citigenB; while Franklin Pierce
.has never done anything to endear him to
the country or. to its cilitens, either- native

- His noble conduct on the prison ship at
Quebec, when British minions assumed the
right to execute Irishmen for being found in
arms against England, especially endears
him to every Irishman who has an honest
heart in his bosom. . . '
. Who that claims to be an American citi
zen, does not point with pride to that
page of the History of the United States,
made glorious by the courage and bravery of
the faithful soldier.
, Fur ourselves we feel that it is only to
such meu as Wifilield Scott that the Nation
can look with safety in her hour of trial and
danger a man who lias proved his prowess
by coping successfully with England in her
day of prido and power, and whose whole
life has been devoted to the service of his

tict, and' always used his power anu J'lilu
cnoi to protect the altars of all creeds from
desecration. In this respect the life of
Winfield Scott stands out in bold relief as
compared with the narrow minded bigotry of
New llatnpsaire, the native State ol t rank
lit) Pierce, a State always under the domin
ion of his party and political associutes, and
which is now the only State in the whole
Confederacy where men are proscribed on
account of their religious faith.
It will not do for t lie friends of Pierce to
urge that he was iu favor of expunging this
odious restriction from the Constitution of
tho State. The evidence o his labors so to
do is wanting,
07Mississippi exhibits unlocked for signs
of a Whig victory to be achieved in Novem
ber. . Several elections to fill vacancies in
the State Legislature, &.C., have resulted iu
the choice of Whig officers in districts hith
erto Democratic. So great indeed has been
the stampede from the Democratic ranks,
that a correspondent in Tippah county,
writing to an eastern paper suys:
Don't despair of Mississippi at least ten
democrats out of every one hundred rcfusj
to support Pierce.
Send me all the documents you can get
hold of. If the Whigs do not carry this State
for Scott, they never will!"
The voto of Mississippi stood in 1848:

For Taylor, Bfl.831

The palpable changes already taken place
jn Mississippi will givo the State for Scott

Another Interesting Letter. The fol

.Democrat of this city, is another evidence
of "the way the wind is blowing" It will
blow such a hurricane before the 2nd of No

that the Pierce and King craft will ever

I am a foreigner a German and a Demo
crat., ' I came to this country in 1830. 1
served, in .1836, in Floridafirst under Gen.
Gaines, and then under Gen. Scott. Now,
Messrs Editors, that my position may be dis
tinctly understood in the community, (hav
ing been considerably annoyed on this sub
ject,) I desire to state, through your paper,
the reason why I intend to vote for Gen.
Coott. It is this: When I was sick, wound
ed,, and suffering inteuso pain, in Florida,
Gen. Scott took charge ol me himself, and
treated me as . a father would have treated
hia son as be did all the men under hi.
command who were so unfortunate as to be
sick or wounded. This was when I was a
mere private in the rank.. When my
wounds were dressed by the surgeon, Gen.
Scott held my arm, and said: -'Hold still,
Vollksr I am with you, and will have all
things done right with regaid to., your
wounds.'.' Having stood by and befriended
me, in a trying time, I, though a Democrat,
shall stand by him on the 2d day of Novem
ber., ... . ,L. VOLLMER.

The Statesman, a few days since, felt very
much g -invod because some three nr four
persous with black blood in them voted in

Again; I learn from tes-timonv that I re
gard reliable, that a portion of these persons
with black blood voted the Locnfoco ticket!
The editor of tho SUttsmun was blowinw a-
bout these matters in a company the other
day, when a prominent Loc.ofoco told him he
had better not agitate the subject, as u por
tion of these blacks voted lor M.'duxv's

This will bo consist 'iii-y with a ! vengeance.
We publish the above communication,
only because the article to which il is a re
ply, appeared in one of tho Locofoco papers
of this city. Under the decision of the Su
premo Court of which Gov. Wood was a
member, the Judges of elections had no right
to prevent such men from voting,' if they
desired it; but the locofocos of New Hamp
shire could repeal the odious test if they
would, which exists iu their Constitution.
The National Era Mr. Corwin.Dt.
Bailey, the able and dignified edit'ir of the
Natibiirl Era, at Washington, in writing of
"Mr. Corwin and the Gardiner claim," says:
"The report we regard as a complete refu
tation of tho base charges against mr. Cor
win; and rejoice that the miserable charges
against him aro refuted." '
, That is tho evidenco of a paper, opposed
politically to Mr. Corwin, and is of far more
weight than all the evidence of all such men
as Olds and Medill in the Union.
"Tell Cimwian to Crow!" In 1840
when inevitable and overwhelming defeat
stared them in the face, tho leaders as a last
resort passed the word along their wavering
line, "Crow, Chapman, Crow;" and- every
Locofoco chicken, from the shrill broken
toned Pluindcaler to the Shanghais of the
Globe and Argus, crowed till their throats
wero in danger of splitting. They crowed,
but the people won, and. not a vrsttgo of .lo
cofocoism was left to mourn the result. ..
. So will it be in 1852. In Ohio the Whigs
have gained- fifUrn thousand, voles since lust
year. They gain two, and probably three
Congressmen; and taking tho Congressional
vote as a test, the State is Whig. Quaking,
shaking and trembling at the result, the
word is again given, "Crow, Chupman,
crow!" and tho chickens littla and big crow
most Justly. Despatches are sent from the
Plaiudealer ollioe to all putts of the Union
claiming 20,000 to 25,000 locofoco majority
in Ohio, when the returns show but 10,000
.o 12,000 on a popular candidate for Judgo.
"Chapman's crow" in J840 was the Bignal
of overwhelming defeat to tho Locofocos,
and the crow of his imitators in 185J will

and great influence in tho parish ' of West

He has always been an unwavering Demo

termination to sustain Scolt is doubtless the
result of a calm, deliberate judgment. We
regard his accession to 0W cause as an e-

Boston, Oct. 22. On Tuesday Mr. Web
ster was considered by his physicians not in
immediate danger. Thero was a probabili
ty of his being able to resume public duties
in a few days, but before evening his disor
der, which is of the bowels, took an inflam
ed turn, and continued to grow worse until
yesterday, when Pr. Jeffries became alarm
ed. Webster's wife, and son are with him.
Dr. Warren left here for Murshfield this
morning.. The distinguished statesman is
fully aware of his danger, and his intellect
is unclouded. He is able to converse freely.
At a speecial mooting of the Webster
Stato Executive Committee, early this morn
ing, it .vns resolved, in compliance with the
wishes of Mr.- Webster's family and friends,
that all political action he suspended for the
present. , . . ,.
During last night Mr. Webster was very
sick, but at five o'clock this morniug, wh m
the messenger left Marslifield.he was asleep.
Yesterday ho prepared a bundle of docu
ments to bi dispatched to Washington.
Who is- He! Some scioundrcl is wri
ting letters to Fairfield county; stating that
the Germans were not permitted to vote in
this city,- while negroes were allowed that
privilege. This same blackguard will sup
port Pierce who has, all. his life, resided in
a state where full blooded negroes could not
only vote, but, be . elected Um-ernor if nc
cessary, and where not only tho German,
but ' the itative-boni American citizen' could
nut hold un office if he happened to bo a
Callwlic. Such is the constitution and the
jaw of Locofoco New Hampshire to-day, and
yet this Locofoco villain will support a lead
ing man of 'that benighted State for Presi
dent.. . . . .
Wo have been credibly informed that, no
man having black blood in his veins voted,
except such as Governor IVoorl had decided
Were entitled to vote. We have also been
informed that the majori'y or them Voted the
Locofoco ticket, but being legal voters,they
hud a right to do so. We aro also informed
that no German or Irishman, or any other
foreigner, was deprived of his right to voto.
But we are informed that, a deaf and dumb j
person,, who had a clear right, wus rryitscrf
his voto by some prominent Locofoco, be
cause he could not talk, and answer certain
questions that were asked him. It may be
as well for those who live in class houses to
refrain from throwing stones.-O. S. Journal.

been discovered in what is called Hill Vein
in the Lake Superior country; Certain' cir
cumstances recently brought to: light by its
discovery, indicate thut it was worked long
before the discovery of America by Colum
bus., 'The richness Of tho tnincmay be.im
agined from tho fact that Mr. Meiidlebaum,
the manager, in causing it to be explored, hud
mass ut copper, winch weighed z.dau
