The Free-soil Candidates and Whig Misre presentations. A systematic eflort has been made by falsehood and perversion, to show that the free-soil nominations, at PittsWurh. will redound to the benefit of Gen. Scott - I and the Whig party. Telegraph operators were bribed and hired to send out false dispatches, to influence tbe South, by representing that the question of nominating Pierce and King was under discussion j when no such idea was entertained by a single delegate. Horace Greely commenced with the first flash of the ttlegraph, by declaring that the Convention had "a very Loco focoish look." In his paper of tbo 13th inst., the nomi nations are thus announced "By Telioiaph. We have a full report of the pro ceedings of the f ree-Soil Convention at Pittsburgh ir- I i ifoia ro;-d hp nr.min.tion for the Presidency, and Hon George W. Julian, of Indiana, : measure demanded by the special interest of slavery ; that for the Vice-Presidency.

Having assembled in National Convention as the delegate of the Free Democracy of the United States, united by a common resolve to maintain rights against wrongs and Freedom against Slavery ; conßding in the intelligence, the patriotism and the discriminating jus- tice of the American people; putting our trust in God ÄÄ'ÄÄÄ candid judgment of all men the following declaration of a. i noi U'VCI IllllCillS 1 I ,k;. r deriving their tit powers Irom the consent of the governed, are instituted among raen to secure wall those inalienable rights of life, liberty, an.i the pursuit of happiness, with which thev are en- 1 .. i i . ft. - r. f r ft . a uu cu i-jr men -iciur, unu 01 men none can ue ue- - u.: i: j 1 1 . . r prired by valid legislation, except for crime. 2 That the true mission of American Democracy is tc maintain tbe Liberties of the People, the Sovereignty of the States and the perpetuity of the Union, by the impartial application to public attain without sectional discriminations of the fundamental principles of equal . i . , , . , j . rights, strict justice, and economical administration. 3. That the Federal Government is one of limited powers, derived solely from the Constitution, and the grants of power therein ought to be strictly construed. by all the departments and agents of the Government; and it is inexpedient and dangerous to exercise doubtful constitutional powers. 4. That the Constitution of the United States, ordain- .1 I , L : - c i i a.

That to the persevering and importunate demands of the Slave Power for more Slate States, new Slave Territories and the nationalization of Slavery, our dis tinct and final answer is No more Slave States, no slave Territory, no Nationalized Slavery, and no National Legislation rot the Extradition of Slaves. 6.

Their principles are war on the ' God-abhored j institution of slavery," as they call it. If the party were strong enough to elect their ticket, a dissolution of the Union would inevitably follow The South would not, and ought not to submit. Even a large vote for this ticket would alarm the South, and endanger the stability of our government. Both of the grea'. politi cal parlies have acquiesced in the finality of the com promise measures, tLc fugitive slave law included, and the vote at the North will show whether the people mean to carry out the pledges of their representatives in convention.

Wright on ac count of the Governor's views on tne tariff, and dwells particularly on the article of wool, which, he thinks, for the benefit of farmers and wool-growers, should be protected. He urges strongly the policy of abandoning the Democratic Revenue tariff of 1846, and a return to the Whig system of protection of 1842. The tariff of 1842 was framed with a view of protect ing the American manufacturer. The farmer was never thought of. The manufacture of wooleu goods in thi country, is almost exclusively confined to the coarser r l tT . Jul : ...:.. . fabjcs. mimes. neny ciu.us, cassnuci es, anu saunet;, ' ' ' coarse blankets, carpets, 3to. The finer qualities of ; colns are not manufactured to any extent in this coun- try. These cloths are from France and the west of England. With a view o( protecting the American manufacturer, the tariff of 1842 levied the following tax on wool: 'On coarse wool, unmanufactured, the value whereof, at the last port or place whence exported to the United Stales, shall be seven cents or under, per pound, there shall be levied a duty of five per centum ad- valorujnV Such wool as the farmers of this country sell from 30 to 35 cents per pound, can be purchased in South America from ö to 7 cents. The flocks cover the vast pampas or plains of that country and require no other cars than the watchful viiiance of a shepherd who can tend a flock of thousands. To enable the manufac turer to make a high profit on his articles, the duty on coarse wool was merely nominal rive per cent., whilst the coarse fabric of foreign manufacture which came in competition with the American article, was taxed to exclusion. This was the policy of the Whig tariff of 1842. The manufacturer was protected at the expense nf tkt farwtA an.l HnsMtosJ rr T s iIia TlarMAAvatin ' ,u 8'" u - Revenue I anil ol 184b, the tarirl on all kinds ol wool is thirty per centum, an advance of twenty-five per j , centum on the Whig tariff. Yet, Mr. 'Veritas" of the I j Journal, complains that the Democrats are opposed to protecting the wool of the farmer. A fair specimen of Whig honesty. A Just Rebuke. The Philadelphia Ledger, a neutral journal of high character, with the spirit which should characterize every fair and honest man, in seveie language condemns the personalities of the Whig pi ess towards Gen. Pierce. From this article we copy the following extract: "One of these calumniators proposes a 'pictorial life' of General Pierce, in which he should be represented as teaching his father to spell.

It applies with much force to tbe article in tho Journal of Thursday, beaded ''Governor Wright's speech." As an evidence of the Journal's ut ter want of fairness, we ask those who heard the speech to scan the following extract from the article in th.T paper: "During the coarse of Mr. McCarty's remarks, ht asserted that, after Gen. Jackson and his party had He cecded in breaking down the United States Bank, they bad encouraged the local banking institutions, selectr-d as deposites of tho people's money, lo exteid their cir culation by an increased issue of their paper. This faei known to every well informed man present, Gov. Wnglu most positively denied!" Here the Jourual makes a case, and then introdu - - his testimony to sustain it. We did not hear Mr. M Carty, but have repeatedly heard him during the can vass. His assertions are, that Gen. Jackson and his cabinet, after they had succeeded in breaking down the National B.inW. recommended the establishment ol State Banks and encouraged the to flood the coun try with paper, to over-issue, to expand their circu lation to meet the demand, 4rc- This, we understand, was his position on Satnrday last. Gov. Wright denied that Gen. Jackson had done any sach thing, and in tins denial be is sustained by the truth of history. Gen Jackson contended that the State Banks were adequate to supply the country with a good currency. By this he meant State Banks properly controlled and managed. Was he not right? Has not experience proved the truth of this assertion? The Whigs, even, are convinced. They no longer clamor foi a National Bank The State and local banks, rightly managed, answer all the pur poses of securing a sound and reliable circulating me dium. But Gen. Jackson at no time encouraged the over issue of paper money, by the local institutions, which brought ruin and disaster on the country. On the con- trary, he endeavored to check it by issuing the Specie Circular, which was universally condemned by the Wilis party. Mr. McCarty, in asserting that Gen. Jackson encouraged the Banks to expand and over-isue, did so inferential!-. No such recommendation can be found in 1 any of the General's messages, or public recommenda tions. He recommended a course of ooiiev which, if the banks had followed, would have saved the country from tbe pressure of 140. They violated the dictates . , - of prudence, and set at naught reason and experience, and the consequences predicted by Gen. Jackson, when he issued the Specie Circular, came on tbe country. Governor Wright, we understand, never asserted that the expenditure ol the General Government were sixty millions. He stated them at fifty-five millions:. This was f . L . r .i o . r .i t i , i .v.-.j . . j the estimates of that Department. Mr. Defrees makes 0ut a table to suit himself, but we presume the people will pay quite as much attention to the reports of the m.. c . .... ... . Z Whig Secretary, as tbey will do to the organ of the Whig party in Indiana. Gov. Wright did not attempt to give the items of this enormous expenditure. He merely ala.-u iuo iwi, bru in mai siaioment. no was susiamco . . . . . l . L. . r . i . l . . . i - i by public documents. The truth is.

Slick a pin there. Terrs Haute Courier. William R. King voted, in 1827, lor a Bankrupt law. But it bore not the slightest r S: rab auce to the Bank rupt law of 1841, which Gen.
