We -u ;r friethds to stand firm, every ! man at the 5t of duly until after the election, j Tr-.ie, all 19 well, and if the ejection should come on j to-rr.orrow we could give from ten to twelve thousand mjority against the Southern Slave Driver in spite of all his hound, but U t it be remembered also that we . hare an enemy to contend with who is utterly unsreu pulous, and who when hard pushed will not stop at anything, no matter how base. They resorted to ; bribery, in Iowa, and what tsecurity have we that they iv'Il not resort to the same and even more infa- . nious means in IndUna ? j Let every Indimian remember that in voting for , Gen. Taylor he votes his own disgrace for all time, j and that the world will so regard it! Bear it in mind j that by Taylor's orders the gallant 1st regiment of j Indianians were kept at tho mouth of the Ilio Grande ; to guard the bread ar.d meal for his regulars to cat, during the whole of their term of ßirvice while others j no mure worthy were advanced before them ; that the i second Indianians, for retreating at Buena Vista in j cb':di"nce tit orders were branded by Taylor as cou ards anJ fugitives in his official report, though tiie j most of them afterwards rallied nnd did as gallant service as any men on the field, and that to this day I the stubborn old wretch sticks to it, though it has 1 betn proved by sworn testimony ana an abundance of j it, that the retreat was in obedience to orders, that j the regiment was rallied and did good service; and! that according to Gen. Taylor's report the gallant Col. Bowles" and a handful of men who joined the i Mississippiar.s were all ofthat regiment who returned j to the field at all after the retreat ! By the infamous I lie contained in this report of Taylor'd the history of our State is falsified and our brave volunteers elan tiered. Men of Indiana, shall we submit to it 1 Let it be remembered also, that Indiana gallant third j regiment, which never fell back, never faltered, and under cover cf which other regiments when beaten j Lack by the enemy repeatedly formed, and which by j all Impartial persons is acknowledged to have contri buted tnorc to the gaining of the great battle of Buena Vista than any other engaged, let it bo remembered we say, that this regiment is passed by in Taylor's orncial report with the cold and formal remark that it performed its duty " creditably." We have here tofore said that in view cf these things no honorable Indianian acquainted with the facti cf the case can vote fur Gen. Taylor, and this is the light in which it is looked at abroad. Every Indianian then who votes far Gen. Taylor votei his own diegrace. The :r.eJ:is by which the Louisville Journal in the extract above prupooj to carry this State for Taylor is worthy of the end. It will be remembered that the first person named on the Journal' list of speakers proposed to be senl to Indiana, Hardin, only a fow yjaM ago educ.rl a young girl who was put uudcr Li charge by a fri-nd, nnd had to fly from the State t prevent his worthless life from being taken by a mol of the iTituriatcd citizen of Kentucky ! But the girl was poor ar.d friendless and Hardin was rich and respectable, so the rich wliigs thought it best " to let the matter drop," and Hardin was taken into favor again. The next on the II?. Humphrey Marshall, was in the Mexican war, and was known to be the open and avowed enemy and '-nderer of the Indiana volun teers, and cam ; i..r provoking Gen. Lane to ehoot him for his bvi.ess. Of the other persons named we know lathing, but we should certainly advise these two worthies not to attempt to address an au dience of Indianians. It might possibly turn out a bad i gg " crpe. A CARD.

Stock brought in alive, to be butchered for the Bar becue, .should be delivered cn Monday at Mr. JBritton's p'.i- ghter pens in the South part of the city. The committee would prefer having the animals alive, if delivered on Monday. The grove selected for the Barlecue is Mr. Britton's woods pasture, immediately west of Nicolai's Brewery in the western part of the city. The following gentlemen have been appointed Com mittees in the different townships to assist the Dinner Committee in procuring meats from their respective townships rnot of whom are now actively engaged in the performance of their duties, to-wit: TO V NSHIP CO MM 1 TTEES.

Sir : I had the honor to receive last evening your invitation on behalf of the Committee of Arrange ments for the Democratic Festival, to address the offi cers and soldiers who may be present at Indianapolis on the ensuing 4th of October. I accept the invitation, and will with great plea sure attempt a discharge of the honorable duty as signed me.

On receiving the tele graphic despatch announcing Mr. Clay's determina tion in regard to tue presidency, the Clay committee was called together, and the following resolution wa passed. lltsolv d. That thi Committee, deferring to Mr. Clay's wishes, thus expressed, their own ardent de sire to place him at the head of the general govern ment, measure due to his exalted talents and pa-!-.frism, to th5 advancement of the national interests, and from tiie gratitude of the Whig party, do, there fore, call a public meeting of tiie friends of Henry Clay at Vauxhall Garden, on Friday, the 5J2d of Sep tember, to take into consideration aid communica tions and the course to be adopted in reference, thereto. The foregoing was adopted in full committee. By order, WILLIS HALL, Chairman. N. Cakkoll, Secretary. We shall await the result with some interest. Some of the Cass exchanges assert that (ten. Tay lor hadn't laid down a solitary principle. What a fdtrider ! Don't he say in his McConkey letter 44 have, laid it down tts a yrinnple, not to jiive my opin ions or prejudge in any way the potitical parties of the country, nor to promise what I would or would not do were I elected to the Presidency of the United Slaii ri' Frte Soil Banner. Well, that is one principle laid down by the ex pounder of Esop's Fables, eure enough : but it seems to us to conflict somewhat with another principle, laid down by the same high authority, to-wit: 44 have no concealment. I hold tut vyinian which I xcou'd not readily proclaim to my assembled countrymen." Fraternizing. The Cincinnati Signal (free soil) and the Cincinnati Herald (abolition) have both been discontinued or rather merged in a new paper, to bo called the Cincinnati Globe, which is to be published daily and weekly, by J. V. Smith. It is to be edited by John C. Voughan, Stanley Matthews and James W. Taylor, and hoists the names of Van Buren and Adams. Like most of the papers of this new-born party it is mostly devoted to one subject, and cannot be said to be very interesting. OrTiiE True Kkpitblican is the title of a new democratic paper at Jefferson ville, Ind., published by J. Usiier. Its editorial department is well conduct ed and gives evidence of a tact and talent which will make itself fait and appreciated in that part of the State. It is printed on entirely new materials, and makes as gucd an appearance in that respect as any paper in tho State. We wish the Republican great ßueerss. 0r7The Journal has a poor opinion of some dem ocratic meetings lately held in this city, and says of a meeting at which the Journal editor was to have spoken but did not for want of hearers, ,4As to the Broad Hippie affair, it was a perfect o.ass-mee.ting in comparison to either of the abovo failures." Strike the m from tho word mass and we will stand corrected. Dr.cLixtn. Dr. Lewis Beecjiek of Fort Wayne, who was appointed an elector on the Van Buren tick et declines the honor. Hon. James P. Milliken, ap pointed on the same ticket as a contingent elector for the Dearborn district, also declines. We shall endeav or to give their letters in full in our next. There will now be but two democrats to Un wliigs on the Van Buren ticket. Stage Voting. A few days ago a vote was ta ken in a fctage in Armstrong county, on the Presi dency, with the following result : For Gen. Cass, 11 For Gen. Taylor, ------ I Steam Boat K:icin-. With public carriers, we know of no more nefari - ous act than Steam Boat raeim ; nnd we believe the public generally will coincide with our opinion. Some- time since, we had occasion to notice this conduct on ithe part of the steamer Mary Fell, running from An- irora to Cincinnati. We were taken to task for it by i mi editor velm nrroSnUir I,?.,,. ,r,1 t, ti.o mtnp .nmfrs. jButafew weeks after, human life was sacrificed on J the same boat, by the bursting vf her connection pipe, I while she was, no doubt, generating extra steam for another race. i On our last trip down from Cincinnati, she attempt - j the same game, that i f holding- on until some boat j should cat oir and then try in? her powers at racing, ine intention was so evident, tr.at it could not DC con-1 oiue.? .oi uvuie m join me irigaie onsuui ccaled.

After 5 &r him for a short time, till his services should be a wicked attempt to crowd the other boat nut of tlie I rrquired in some other ship. On Thursday, as I channel, the river being very low, and the channel j learned by letter, the Cumberland was sent to the quar conspquentlv narrow, the boats became locked ; and jaMinc ground, George having been ordered on board the Mary PtU, with a head of steam, as the sequel j the day after I left New York.

Understanding the infrrogalor, , he soon found that all would not submit to this trilling jonc, and especially to a boy. The alarm was in i with human life ; and for once, hi: pilot was directt J I creased by tho death, on Monday night of the Mae ! to run properly. Under the ordinary head of steam, j ler, a deserving man upon whose wages depcuded in ! she was soon left far astern, and the writer of this has j a great degree, the support of his parents, and an un ! seen her but once since.

War Department which he thinks would entitle him to the Governorship of Cilifornia, which was the,, exercised by Lt. Col. Fremont ty ! appointment of Com. Stockton. To get this, Kearny i Attempted to Hubvert Fremont's government, and came ! well nijh involving the country in civil war, which (was only prevented by Fremont's voluntarily sur - 1 rendering to Gen. Kearny the Governorship. Becoming invested with supreme authority, Kearny preferred false charges against Fremont, and ordered him to accompany him to Washington City. Having arrived at the borders of Missouri, Col. Fremont was arrested. This was the first intimation Fremont had of his intended arrest. Thus he was taken away from California without a particle of evidence, while Kearny having his arrest in contemplation for about seven months, had collected evidence upon which to try him, while those persons who were known to be friendly to Col. Fremont, were hurried off under or ders to the four quarters of the globe ! Ai rived at Washington, Kearny got a packed court martial consisting of Col. Fremont's enemies, to try him, and by which he was sentenced to bo dismissed from the service. Tlie President offered him a par' don, but Col. Fremont scorned a pardon when he was conscious of having committed no ojj'ence. All the olliccrs engaged in Mexico and California have been brcvettcd and double-hrcvetted, Fremont's enemies and all, Kearny included, while Fremont, amongst tho most meritorious of tho whole, has been wholly neglected. We do not see why this mutter was per mitted to go just as it has gono : hut public justice will set it right at no distant day we hope. Col. Fremont has not therefore gone to California as it.- Governor, though we sincerely wish the gov ernment had done itself the credit to send him there in that capacity. lie has gone to that country how ever to complete his scientific researches, whither he carries with him the sympathies and respect of all just and honorable men who know his history. A correspondent of the Detroit Free Press says: In coming from Albany to Buffalo on the packet boat Baltic, on her last trip, the passengers took a vote on tho Presidential question, with ihe following result : For Gen.

We have nccouiits of the discovery of the most Wenderful gold mire n record. The l- tters which we publish below will give some idea of the richness of the mine and of the. fever it has created. If the statements in relation to it be confirmed, perhaps Congress 7it' find time t pass a law" providing for a gnxcrniiunl there. The territory is now without gov ernment and without law or organization, except euch as barbarous Mexico left. Ho! for California, nnd baskets full of gold ! Who goes ! Monterey, Upper California J July a. 11. S The storeship Southampton leaves for Mazattan in the morning, and the hour is late; Mill I mut throw en paper a few sentences to you. Since my last, a gold mine has been sprung here. It has been discov ered that the sands which border the American Fork and the Feather River, branches of the Sacramento, are full of particles of gold, resembling in shape squirrel shot, flattened out. It is got by washing in any vessel, from a tea-saucer to a warming pun. A single person will gather by this process from one to two ounces a day and some have gone as high as a hundred dollars worth. Two thousand whites and as many Indians are now engaged in washing the sand. All labor of every other kind has stopped except a lit tle farming. Mechanics, d"Ctors, law vers, merchants, sailors and soldiers, have all gone in mass to the gold region. Only the women renin in. and they will, it is expected start soon. Their cradles will answer ad mirably to wash out gold in, nnd the little fellows in the mean time must amuse themselves with the ingots which their mothers dig. The excitement which this gold discovery has pro duced, is most intense. People stop each other in the streets to feel the pulse, and see how the gold füver, as it is called, beats. Talk to a laborer about h;r;ng him for fifty dollars a month, and he will turn up his nose at you. Offer him ten dollars a day and he will tell you he is bound to Feather river. One man, who resides next door to me, gathered five hundred dollars worth in six days. He lias one lump which weighs over an ounce. A trough such ns you feed pigs in, will bring in the gold reg.on fifty dollars. Put a piece of sheet iron punched with holes on it, and it will bring over a hundred. My friend J. II. paid six teen d-dlars fr a litile basket, and his companion gave twenty for a chmaberpot, ail to wash out the gold in. It beats all the dreams of romance, and all the golden marve ls of ;he wand of Midas. And yet it is true, if there be truth in man where gold is concerned. Sailors all run from our ships, ond soldiers from our camps, to search Ihe gold region. One Yankee captain here found that all his sailors were about to desert, and so he told them he would join them, und they would give the male the ship, and sure enough. when the mate waked un in the mornirur he found the captain, crew, and ship's launch, all gone ! nnd he himself sole monarch of all h surveyed. The list vessel that left the coa-t, was obliged to pay her 0 i crew fifty dollars per month each. Then; is no use in chasing n sailor here in un interminable forest. We have no news here of any moment. The squadron is still at Mazathn. but in the event of peace, w ill come here, except tin? C tnL'ress and Cy- an", which will go homo under ihe Pennant of Com cdore Shtibnck. We have hern exi""ct:n" to have a great owning en ine i- urm ..1 .inly, in u.c iov.nj i.u., v.......... o.e iv..,h,1..;jus1 im.-.eu, but the gold iever has taken off too many of our cit - izens. Jt must be postponed. The country is all quiet tor matter of war the weather fine, and the crops abundant it the gold fever will leave hinds enough to gather them. Yours truly. W. C.
