ENGLISH FfftfniNG TOWARDS AMERICA. It must be gratifying tn Americans to know,that notwithstanding the abuse heap ed upon them and their institutions, by the hordes efEnglisb travelers who ■ early infest this coutry, there are those in the good old •‘fader land” who are disposed to accord 10 them the credit they deserve. We, as one of tli “universal Yankee nation, have never been disposed to complain where our real faults have been animadverted up on, nor to deny that vve possess them in as great abundance as any other nation; hut we have felt a disgust towards the English character for the undue ami unqualified censure which many of their public men have, for years past, been meeting out to us. It is seldom now, that we receive an honest greeting from John Bull, without qualification. But when the old man is in good humor, and thinks that Jonathan is his son. fte for a moment forgets tho man ner in which he ‘‘cut the leading strings,” and says, “God bless you,” from the very bottom of his soul. The new era in Atlan tic Steam Navigation bids fair to increase good feeling between the old and young gentleman, and may bring about an entire reconciliation between them, We find symptoms of this in an article in the Lou don Quarterly Review, “Atlantic Steam Navigation,” from which we extract the following: • iniriy years n£() 1 i'11011 u iinrssmg Mr. Miller’s experiments on tin* Forth ami Clyde Canal, succeeded in really establish ing a steamboat on the Hudson River, be tween New York and Albany, a distance of about 150 miles. His speed was only six or seven miles the hour; but how as tounding must it have been to the unbe lieving and jesting crowds on the river side who witnessed the commencement of the project, w hen they were crunpelh d to acknowledge its execution? \t’e have heard it lately stated, that of the two mem bers of a lcadieg New Yolk firm in these times, one started from Albany and the other from Bristol on the same day—each by sailing packet—and each being sixteen days on the voyage, the passage to Europe was accomplished in tlio same time with that between the ‘commercial mi tropolis of the new world and the Legislative Capital of the same state. Mr. Porter (in 1637) enumerates thirty-nine steamboats as be longing to the port of New York. Our own enquiries may be move recent, arid a year or two is a matter of some moment in those matters, especially in Amei icn, where the whole aspect of their kalnidescope so ciety changes as it were at jar, almost while the book of the men who undertakes to de scribe it is going to press; we should set down about sixty steamboats for N'. York. A daily journal from that busy emporium, now before us, speaks of the starting of some ten or a dozen for Albany, at the same hour, and of an equal number seen meanwhile crossing the water in various other directions; most of them, he it con sidered,boats that may well ho cnlbd bloat ing palaces.’ And again, looking to the in terior of that country—a country that would seem almost to have been made for steamboat navigation for it—what a specta cle do uu there behold of victorious sei eftee, energy, agd art, thinking it would seent, their proud triumphal marches, their /progresses.” Instinct with all but life, •Tramp, trump along the earth they ride, Splash, splash, across the sen;’ everywhere, rejoicingly rushing on, ns if, with all their flying flags and noisy en gines of specil, themselves to celebrate the advent of that civilization which they do so much to extend. There are now about 40 steamboats on Lake Erie alone. On the Mississippi waters where 20 years since, there was no such a tiling as a regular line known, there are now 300 boats at the smallest calculation ; we have indeed seen the number rated twice as high.” Our neighbors in the provinces might feel their pride a little hurt, if their self conceit would allow them to sloop so much as to notice the following: 'Not only does America occupy the Western Hemisphere by herself, while all other continents are pitched against*her in one, hut on that side civilization has yet made so little progress, things are so liter ully ne:r, that the ‘United States of Atneri- ! ica’ might with some plausibility assume to : be America, the writer says, ‘‘The Americans themselves, not more in the transports of their exultation over the ; first thought of the effects of it, than in : their admiration of tlie thing itself, and oil the style in which it was carried through, I seem to hnve been too much otherwise ex- j cited to feel their wonted chagrin at ap pearing to bo ever taken by snrpriso in matters of practical adventure. Nay cher- ‘ ishing, we do believe the honor of their Ci ther iand next to that of their own (for we i . bare often that, although Jonathan gives a gruff,grumbling family growl of a lecture now and then—partly, perhaps, to prove himself a descendant—ho is never easy in seeing it done by any body else,) they quite torget their sorrow in their pride.” In alluding to the New York ships which ply between New .York and the several English Ports, lie says, “From the very high and well-deserved reputation of the ‘Line's’-—the most per fect conveyance of the kind, and the great- i est advance in merchant navigation ever up to the spring, of 1838—it is per jjjk"1'1 »«tm|non impression, that a passage gland and the Uni ’"’‘•"••(IMiperb vessels ^>*“'Mi»|olera course of it, or for tlie nauficnl manage ment.” Mechanic & Farmer. THE ELECTION. We feel it our duty to recur frequently to the recent election, in ibis State; and to spread before the public such facts as come to our knowledge,which go to prove beyond a question, the trutn of our ns.-eition, that the election was carried against the Whigs by a system of fraud and corruption ini paralelled in the history of this or any other age.—In the countv of Piscataquis the loro foco Bmtrd of Selectmen of two towns have already been indicted by the Grand Jury for their dishonesty, and pros ecutions are already in progress in different sections of the Slate against Van BurOrt presiding, officers for their high handed rascality on the day of e lection, in disfran chising Whig voters, anti in enfranchising 'tost1 who Imd no legal right to vote, hut who were permitted so to do, because they were of the true faith. What candid man is there who believes that tIso county of Oxford co.lid throw more votes than one fifth part of its entire population—vet such is the startling fact, and who is there (wc pat the question with earnestness and can dor) uho is there that believes it could he honest I v done? Again we ask why in the mast of the towns in the County of Waldo check lists wore not kept, and tho voters were permitted to deposite their ballots in a hat in violation of law? Was it not so arranged to afford facilities to the reddes and abandoned to throw as many ballots as they chose? Again we ask where the vast sums of money come from, that was frerly hvished in mmy parts ef the Si "to lo oppcrate upon the election. Ruel \\ il lintns said in a letter addressed to the Ban gor Whig that he did not obtain money through the Merchant’s Bank, hut why did Mr. Williams lament his answer to his al leged .agency through that Institution in the destribntinn of the funds? Is Mr. Wil liams ignorant of the fact that thousands of dol'nrs were expended to influence voters? Is he Ignorant of the fact that in several places as high as ten and fifteen dollars were unblushingly offered for votes? Ifso, let him extend his enquiries in the commu nity and lie will find that sueli was the case. The \ an Boren leaders have been very anxious since the elect ion to suppress ail inquiry, and to have as little said about the election as possible, and well they may be anxious, lor the voice of tin indignant and cheated people arc sounding their notes of' displeasure into their ears. Wo repeat— Maine lias been thrown into the arms of Van Bnrcn by bribery and fraud—the elec tive franchise among us is not only abused, but is rapidly approaching to that condition when it will be considered as a mere farce. Ret we do not ynt despair of the triumph of correct principles men in Maine—if po litical iiaverv his reaped its golden harvest, hoiiesily and truth will find un abiding place 1 and make rapid accession to their ranks by the force of their own loveliness and majesty.
