The Presidential Question. Much ex
citement seems to prevail among the whig editors,
in Boston, and elsewhere, in relation to an article
which appeared in the Boston Atlas, a week or two
since, wherein the claims of Gen. Harrison, ns the
most proper candidate for the presidency, was some
what strongly advocated. T he article, appearing at
that time, although entitled to great consideration,
appeared to us rather premature, under all the cir
cumstances. It strikes us, that this business of
quarrelling about men, might as well be referred to
the national convention, which is to meet in 183!),
and that the attention of the press, might bo much
more profitably directed, in
fying the public mind, on
diate, and vital consideration.
The truth is, there can be no question as to the.,
qualifications, and merits of eithorofthe candidates
named by the Whigs. As to claims, we consider j
that neither of them have any, above hundreds of
ethers It is the people, that have the ‘claim,’ and
which ever they finally decide upon, it will be the
duty of the whole party to support.
"Mro fi ddled while Rome was burning.'"
The feastings and carousals of the I.nco-focoes
all over the Ftate, and in many portions of the Uni
ted States, on account of the recent success oftnry
ism in this State, forcibly reminds us of the above
quotation. We have n great many Neros in our
day, who, so long ns they can retain their hold upon
the honors and emoluments of the nation, and feath
er their nests, from the public coffers, nt the expense
of ihe people, care but little, what becomes of Home.
But what better can we expect from a party who
hnvc chosen a man to rule over them, and whom
they have beenj'.vorshiping—even to licking the dust
from his shoes, ever since tho Ciliey duel, who
made his boast at a caucus composed oflocn foeos,
that he “would go with his party, if it went to the
,|-1!” 'Ibis hn3 been charged against Mr.
Fairfield, time and again, nnd yet hr, nor his friends
fn- him. have never seriously attempted a refutation
of it. to nnr knowledge. And from all appearances,
we should judge Mr F. nnd his party wa r detesmin- !
ed to he ns good as their wold. The quicker the
eonsumatioH takes place, the better for those who
prefer to remain behind, and take care of the ship of5

T he last New York weekly Whig, contains n very
curious nnd somewhat ludicrous interior view of
Uncle Sam's kitchen, caricatured in fine style. Over !
llie mantel, on a long line, hangs a large assortment
oT rags, to be made into shin-plasters—the “better |
currency.” That “monster,” the U. S. Bank, in
satanic form, appears over the fire, where it would

road lending from Wiscassct to Aina, or commencing on
paid road on Smith’* fiill’f^o called) near the road lead
ing to Smith’* Mill thence running from either point a«
may seem best in a northerly direction so a* to strike
near the north east corner of Oak* Bundled’* bark field
(so called) in said Aina—thc'nce to branch in two direc
tions, one branch to continue on in a northerly direction
till it srikea the road leading to Francis Avcrill’a dwell
ing House in said Alrt'a, to the head of the tide Village
(so called) in said Aina,—the'otlin branch to run in a,
northeasterly direction so as to strike the road leading
from said Averill’s to - heepscot Bridge, the last descri
bed branch may branch off by Joseph Lnitoii’* south
line in a northeasterly direction, if in your judgment it
will appear to be a better rout.
1st. Bo cause the road i.mw traveled from Wiscnsart
;'irough Aina to Sherpscot Bridge passes over every Hill
and ledge of any magnitude that can be found throughout
its whole course, and it* location is such that for the
J eater part of the winter season it is blocked up w ith
sn »w,so as to render it impassable.
*?d. If a public highway a* above described should be
laid out all the difficulties and olwtructions that arc now
met with in traveling the load leading from Wistasset
11 Sheepscot Bridge as it now exists will be avoided—
as a road laid out as prayed for, will pass over a por
tion of the Country perfectly level.
3d. Because by the location of tbe *a$d road the di*»
tance froth Wiscasset to the head of the tide village will
be greatly shortened-^-sai I road Will heroine pftrt of the
mail route—and the whole F astern nnd Western travel
will be greatly accommodated thereby.
For these and other reasons which will rhore fully nj*
pear, your petitioners request that a road may belaid
out as prayed for. !
