PROGRESS OF THE CAUSE.
The Baltimore Patriot publishes the fol
lowing summary and most gratifying review
of the progress of Whig principles, during
the present year:—
The first was the election in the city ot,
Baltimore and Anne Arundel county, for
a member of Congress, which terminated
in the election of a Whig by more than !
eight hundred and sixty majority, being a
great Wbig gain.
Next was tlio election of Congressmen
•in Mississippi, which terminated in the
• lection of the Whig candidates by a thou
sand majority, fn a Stale which gave Van
Buren her eleotorial vote in 1830.
Next was the election in Connecticut,
which terminated in the election of a Whig
Governor, by upward of five thousand ma
jority, the election of an entire Whig Sen
ate, and a large Whig majority in the
House of Delegites, thereby securing a
Whig Senator in Congress, in place of the
present-Van Buren incumbent. Connec
ticut gave her electoral vote for Van Bu
ren, in l830.
Next was the election in Virginia, which
terminated in the election of a Whig ma
jority in the Legislature, by a majority of
upward of three thousand popular votes,
thereby securing the election of a \V big
Senator in place of the present conserva
tive incumbent. Virginia gavt^her elec
toral vote in 1836 for Van Buren, by up
ward of six thousand majority.
Next was the election in Louisiana, which
terminated in the election of a Whig Gov
ernor, a Whig majority in the Legislature,
and an entire delegation to Congress.—
Louisiana gave her electoral vote for Van
Buren, in 1836, and elected two Whigs to
one Van Boren member to Cnngress.
Next was the election ofNnrth Carolina,
which terminated in the election of a whig
Governor by upward of sixteen thousand ,
majority, a id the election of a whig ma
jority in both houses ofthe Legislature.—
North Carolina gave her electoral vote for
Van Buren, in 1836.
Next was the election of Kentucky,
which terminated in the election of large
majorities of whigs 111 both houses of the
Legi-I iture.
Next whs the election in Indiana, which
terminated in the election of large majori
ties of whig* in both houses of the Legisla
ture, thereby securing the election of R
whig Senator in Congress in place of the
present Van Duren incumbent
Next was tiie election of Rhode Island,
which terminated in the election < f large
majorities of whigs in the Legi-I tore, and
secured the electi m of a whig Senator in
Congro.ss, in place of the present incum
bent. Rhode Island gain her electoral
vote lor Van Buren. in 1831).
Next was the election of Alabama, which
terminated in the election of a whig mem
ber of Congress hv an increased majority,
an.I which added to the whig strength in
both houses of the Legislature.
Next was the election in Missouri, which
terminated in the election, as in IS3l>, of
two Van Buren members of Congress, and
od led to the whig strength in both houses
of the Legislature.
Next was the election of Illinois, which
terminated in the election of a Van Buren
Governor, by a very.small majority, and In
the election of one Van Buren, one conser
vative, and one whig member of Congtess
Being a gain of one whig me liber of Con
gress. A majority of the Legislature is
understood to be whig.
Next was the election in Vermont, which
terminated in the election of a whig Gover
nor by an increased majority, and also in
the election of an increased whig majority
in the Legislature. In one Congressional
district there has been no choice, so that
another election will be held.
Anu last was the election in Maine,
whici) gave a majority of upward of nine
thousand in 1833 for the Van Buren Gov
ernor, and which gave the Whig Governor
n majority of threejor four hundred in 1837,
owing to the small vote and t! e unpopu
larity of Mr. Parks, the Van Buren candi
date. This year the Van Buren candi
date is erected by about three thousand
majority, out of upward of eighty thousand
votes.
From all these elections, it will he seen
that, compared wilh 1836, the Whigs have
gained Mis-issippi, Connecticut, Virginia,
Louisiana, North Carolina and Rhode Is
land—giving sixty electoral vn.es—and
have lost nothing. Compared wish 1837,
the Whigs have gained Baltimore, Missis
sippi, Virginia, one district in Lnusiana,
one district in Illinois—and have lost Maine
The result is truly cheering, and ought
to animate us to increased exertions. The
whigs have gained six Van Buren States —
the Loco Focos have not as yet carried a
single original Whig State. The next
election will take place in Maryland, and
let it not be said that she is the first to de
sert from the Whig cause. Our opponents
nre untiring in their exertions; the public
business of thu people is almost entirely
suspended, to give the office-holders plenty
of time to electioneer; emissaries from
Washington and Baltimore, nre perambu
lating the whole State, tn animate the Lo
cos and browbeat the Whigs; money has
been raised in large amounts, and evetv
means that a desperate party ran devise
lias been adopted to defeat the Whigs._
Let us bo wide awake. Let us meet them
on thrir own ground. If necessary, let us
carry the war into our enemy’s camp.
; Singular cojtGivr.Nnss. ..Sir W,aWer
Scott,, in his article in the Quarterly Re
vie w on the Cullodon papers, mentions a
charnrtei itic instance ol the old Highland
warrior’s mode of pardon. ‘Yon must for
give your bitterest enemy. Cenmnir, now,
said the confcsser to bru.as lie lay gasping
on his death-bed.—‘Well, it I must, repli
ed the chieftain.'‘but my curse be on you,
Donald,’ turning towards his son, ‘il you

Hie official returns to the'1 reasprv I)e
lartment show that in the year 1821, the
mine of Silks importer! into this country
vas 8 {,280.000. In the three successive
rears there was a steady and progressive
ncreasn in the amount of importations, and
n 1825 they rose tnthp valoe of-810.299.
100 —From 1 "-2f* lo 1830 llmre was a grad
ial falling off, the value of importations in
be last year named being $5.930,000.—In
1831 there was a sudden increase, the im
variations or me vear rising to jj, i i, I I r ,
100. In 18.32 ’.3.3 and 34. thev averaged
about 810.000,000. In 18.35 they rose to
a 10 877,080, nnd in 1a38,they reached
tile large amount of 822.930,000. During
he last 1837, the importations fcdl to 814.
152,070 iri consequence of the commercial
lifliculties of the country, and although the
Utter amount is small when compared with
.he value of importations of 18,38, it is nev
ertheless a large i'ern of na'iunal expendi
nre for the article in question. The ofli
*ial statements of export of Silk goods from
this country during the same series of
years show that the annual average shipped
o other countries is only about 8 1,000 000
n value and consequently that very nearly
lie whole amount imported is consumed
iv the people ot the United States. It is
a singular spectefch* to hehold a country
ivllie.h is so admirably adapted in nil tps
aeets to the culture of Silk as is our own,
rihutnrv, to the amount of so many mil
ions annually to the industry of France.
But we are induced to think that the im
aorts of Silk from abroad have seen their
eax mum, or at a’l events, ’hat should thev
grow higher, tl ey will soon begin tf' lie p >id

Pt.nslve adm rert pr.Jerred by Ihe ladies.
I have remarked that tire generality of my
.sex prefer those of the other sex who are ol
a grave and s n imentnl turn, provided nl
vvuvstlmt the gravity does not pri coed (rout
dullness, hut from a reflecting castol mind,
which increases their respect while it adds
to the interest they experience. I have
known n pale face and pensive manner
make impressions on female hearts that had
successfully resisted the attacks of counte
nances and exhilarating gaiety: the pos
session of these agremms being more calcu
lated to amuse than interest, are rarely te
ineinbered when absent. Women seldom
forget the man who makes them sigh; but
rari ly recur to him who has excited their
mirth, even though a brilliant wit may have
been displayed in his bon mots and good
stories. lie therefore, who would capti
vate the fastidious taste id la bran sex,
must eschew too frequent smiles, even
though he may have floe teeth, and
must likewise avoid occasioning or promo
ting the exhibition of those pearly orna
ments in her he wishes permanently to
please.— Lady lllessiiigton’s Confession.
