FREE SQIL TICKET IN VIRGINIA.
The.whig papers are parading with great
zest; through the .Union -an.. "account of
free soil convention held ,ia Woodstock,
Va., on the 20th of July, to farm, an elec
toral ticket to be cast for Vaa Buren. We
have seen the names of tbe gentlemen that
are said to compose, that .ticket, several of
whom we personally know, and more ultra
abolition, Whtg are. not to be found in the
Union. ., There is another complexion to the
face of, perhaps, the most talented and in
fluential member of this electoral ticket
we mean Samuel M. Janney of the 9th dis-j
tnct. He is not only an ultra Whig, who
was never known to vote for a' Democrat,
and an Abolitionist, who has written more
abolition tracts, pamphlets, and newspaper
articles Tor circulation in the South than
perhaps tbe most unmitigated New England
fanatic, but is the head and chief ornament
of a large and influential Church of Friends,
who poll . in one county Loudoun, more
than a thousand (exclusively 'whig) votes,
who love . consistency and eppose at all
times military men from oonsciencious mo.
tives. .They carried their opposition to the
Mexican war to a level with Corwin's.
They frowned upon efforts to enroll volun.
teers opposed supplies, and have no sym
pathy Tor any one who participated in the
battles. ; Their influence, - through their
delegate, John anney, was east in the
Philadelphia Convention for Henry Clay,
and ifjwa are net greatly mistakea.their
totes will be cut in) November for Van
Buren and Adams. .They never' nan rive
