I ,.1,,,.. - no such law has passed; that whilst the law in relation time our road reaohes there, as we see by a late ' ;-tr, the most confident tones. It is boldly asserted by old 1 holder under Gen. Taylor's administration. It is there-j seems to have been to publish the expenses in advance politicians, that States which have for years been com- fore the most natural thing in the world that Mr. Lange j of the laws, journals, and Revised Statutes to urge pelled to follow the triumphal car of Whiggery, will. Lheuld desire the election of his old friend and compan I thf to beheve lhl Uey nm extravagantand in the approaching contest, wheel into the Democratic . w n . . . . ... them to pass judgment upon the expenses before Corrections. Mr. fionge, in his long address full of objections to tue Democratic party, among other things equally erro neons says: " Where in the United States will you find a Whig State that is so aristocratic as the always Democratic State of South Carolina, whe.e a white man is consid ered nobody if he has not a set of negroes to support him, and onlv a certain number of rich planters decide on the course of policy and the interests of the State? It is according to the rules of the Democrats that the Democratic State of Virginia allows a vote only to men of certain amount of real estate, or that the likewise ever Democratic State of New Hampshire cannot be lieve that a Catholic might be a good citizen? Has the decided Democratic Senate followed Democratic princi ples, when it cannot consent to pass the bill of Land Reform, that intends to give to every poor man a farm, passed by tbe House of Representatives months ago? Is it out of pure love of Democracy, or ont of fear, to create in less than no time a half dozen of free States, which would gire to them the preponderance in Con gress?" We desire, jn respectful language, to correct the mis representations in the above. By the present Constitu tions of the Democratic States of Virginia and South Carolina, every free white man is entitled to vote. Those alterations and amendments have been made by Democratic Conventions. Roman Catholics vote in New Hampshire, and are regarded good citizens. Ii they are not entitled to hold office, the fault does not lie at the Joor of the Democratic party, as has been clearly shown by the Boston Pilot, the organ of the ( jtholic Church in New England. As to the land re form bill, it was introduced into the House by a Demo crat, passed by Democratic votes, and on a recent vote in the Senate it only received the vote of three Whigs, whilst sixteen Democrats, and among them Senator Bright of Indiana, voted for it. Still Dimb. The "Sentinel" will not open its mouth on the subject of Gen. Jackson's letter to Dr. Coleman, in favor of adequate and fair protection of American mannfactures. Indiana Journal. Gen. Jackson's letter to Dr. Coleman on the tariff was written in 121. During the whole of his administra tion as President he never recommended the doctrine of high protection; He signed the compromise act of 1332, which was a bill to reduce the tariff to the revenue stan lard. His whole official course as President was opposed to the doctrine of protection; yet the Whig party, to sustain their doctrines, go back to this letter written in 1824. This they regard as just and fair; but when Democrats allude to the letters and communica tions of Gen. Scott written in 1844, they say these are not his opinions now, and in quoting them manifest in justice is done to their candidate. Now, if it is proper to refer to a letter written by Gen. Jackson twenty-eight years ago, where is the wrong in quoting the opinions of Gen. Scott expressed eight years ago? Whigs plead the statute of limitations on their candi date without allowing the same privilege to their oppo nents. This is Whig tactics. Mr. McCarty, the Whig candidate for Governor, nev er makes a speech that h does not complain bitterly that Democrats refer to the Native American letters of Gen. Scott; yet in the same speech he refers to the defalca tions of Harris and Boyd, and the indiscreet Utters of Levi Woodbury written in 1837, fifteen years ago. Let the Whigs bring forward the votes of Gen. Pierce and William R. King. We will not plead the statute of limitation.. Test their votes by the written opinions of General Scott. Thiis is all we ask. General Jackson sleeps in his tomb at the Hermitage. His opinions ex. pressed in 1324 are not involved in the controversy. His administration we are ready to defend when assailed. Charles Bonge, Esq. This gentleman, who has received the Whig nomina tion for Representative, has published a long address, intended to convince his German Democratic friends that they ought to support him. It is an out and out Whig document, manifesting respectable ability. He advocates all the Whig doctrines, and notwithstanding his experience of the effects of a high tariff in his own country, he still advocates that doctrine, because it is part of the Whig creed. But we do not intend tore ply, but will turn him over to our friend of the Volks Blatt, who will manage bis case. He concludes with a sarong appeal to his German friends, and as to the Whigs he remarks: " I have to add but a few words, as we agree about all these questions. I cannot give you a certain pledge; it would be assuming too much only I promise, should 1 indeed be elected, to try, to the best of my ability, not to forfeit your confidence." This is a very strong argument why Whigs should vote for him. Should he be elected he will no doubt endeavor to fulfill his promise, by voting against every Democrat for office, and in favor of every Whig measure. Democrats, think of this when you are asked to vote for Mr. Bonge. The Booton Pilot. We have always understood that this journal was one of tbe most reliable newspapers in the Union. It has an immense circulation, and its statements we have always regarded with the utmost confidence. In this we may have been mistaken. Michael Morrison, an Irishman and a Catholic, charges this journal with ut tering falsehoods against the Whig party. If Mr. Mor rison's statements are true, Mr. Donahoe ought to be branded as a trator by every Irishman in the land , and if they believe Morrison they will surely do it. Irish men do not like to be hoodwinked and deceived. As editor of a journal, claiming to be impartial and inde pendent, Patrick Donahoe makes a statement, which Michael Morrisop pronounces false. These gentlemen are both Irishmen. Donahoe is a man of more ability, and better posted in the history of the nation than Mor rison; but we leave it to their countrymen to decide which has told the falsehood. to evidence is omitted in the revision, the old law on from which we copy below.

To prejudice the people against that Constitution, the cry was raised against the expenses of that Convention. But the people tri umphed the Constitution was adopted, and an end put to all schemes calculated to again involve tbe State in a debt of millions. The people were not to be induced to abandon their cherished principles in consequence of the cry of extravagance.

Wallace a Native American The Whigs need neither stnrt nor wince at the above caption, for we have it in our power to prove beyond question that John M. Wallace, Whig candidate for Congress in this dis'rict, in 1844 indentified himself with the odious Native A- "rican party. The facts are these : Some time during tl "ir, he then being a resident of Fort Wayne, Mr. Wal . wrote a call for a meeting to organize a Native Arne ican party, which he caused to be published in the Fo Wayne Sentinel. Contrary For the liiy Indiana State Sentinel. Lexington, Ind. Aug. 24, 18Ö2. Mr. Editor Gov. W right and Mr. McCarty spoke in our Uwn yesterday. There were about two hundred persons in attendance. Mr. McCarty led off in a speech of an hour's length. In that time, he devoted not more than ten minutes to State policy the rest of the time he de voted to matters not at all connected with the canvass, and altogether out of place for a candidate for Governor. The object was manifest. He could not speak of tbe present condition of the State, without reflecting great credit on the Democracy ; and he could not speak of tho the Journal condition of the State prior to the election of Gov. Whitcorab, without reflecting equally great discredit on the Whig party. In order, then, to have any success, be must talk of matteis foreign to the canvass, and if pos sible, draw ott the minds ol the people Irora the condi Whig Slanders. To show the recklessness of the Whig press, we copy the following from the New Castle Banner: ' Professor Wm. C. Larabee, A. M. L. L. D.. and candidate for Superintendent of Schools, has stumping" the State to secure his election. ! The Rev. Professor will not, we hope, get as "anxious" j about his election as he was to secure the nomination I forgetting the sanctity of the Sabbath and the duties of to his expectations, the meeting xvasbutslimly attended the sanctuary to electioneer about the bar-rooms and ! and though it organized by calling Wallace to the chair, I I public houses of Indianapolis.

A new rehash of Whig slanders under the imposing title of the "Expositor," has just been issused from office, but we are requested by Nicholas McCarty, Esq., to say that he has not contributed one cent for the publication of these documents, and that he will not. The document which he says he contributed to purchase, and recommended to be distributed among inlancv, and by being anions the hrst to shout the ban le-r-rv of "Down with the Foreigners," to ride into power ilk the friends and associates of his choice. As the Whig convention adopted no platform of principles, we are forced to look into the past history of Wallace to find what are his views, opinions and predilections. Conspicuous upon the pases of that history stands fotth this one damninc fact JOHN M. WALLACE IS A NATIVE AMERICAN! Brethren! adopted citizens! do you consider yourselves under any obligation to support a party whose leaders are thus inden'ified with proscription? Will yon uphold those who seek to welcome you to our shores with a tvrannv worse than that from which you have fled? as a Democratic candidate for Assessor is to be nomina ted. Speeches will be made, and the Glee Club is ex. pected to be present. Plain TalkHear him. Mr. Mangtim, tho great Scott leader in the Senate, talks thus about Mr. Webster: ;Mr. Mangtim said, there were doubtless sometimes petty, paltry things done in th9 Departments. Veiy recently, a paltry, contemptible thing had been done by the great man of the Whig party he meant the Secre tary of State unworthy of him, unworthy of his posi tion, and disgraceful to the party, so far as'his act could affect it, which was to but little extent, and would be but little longer to any extent." It appears that the Scotites are losing confidence in the great expounder. The expounder has certainly lost confidence in them since the Baltimore nominations. that I should say notbinir about it : but every man. how ever humble, has a reputation to sustain, and that repu tation is as dear to him when he is not, as when he is, a candidate. Mr. Sheets said that he was clerk at the session or 1830-'3l, and that he performed all the du ties with one assistant, and that the laws were revised that session. Let us see what kind of a revision that was, and hat labor was performed by that Legisla ture. Upon examination it will be seen that the Legis lature of 830-'31, passed some fifty odd bills, which covered 391 pages all told ; and then passed a bill de claring that certain laws passed bv previous Legisla tures should REMAIN IN FORCE AND BE RE PUBLISHED IN THE REVISED STATUTES, and that certain other laws should be repealed. There was another revision in 183S, and also one in 1843. Ths revision of 1843, was a compilation by Gov. Bigger and Hon G. H. Dunn, and was reported to the House in Enrolled Bills, and piled upon the desks and many I chapters passed without reading. Hence it required no labor of clerks in either House to engross and enroll. i But 'then came the revision of 152. Everything re- ' qnired a change. A new Constitution had been adopt -ed The general and local laws had accumulated to i over 6000 pages, and it became necessary to make a re vision to conlorm to the new Constitution. The fo. A Powerful Argument. The following, which originated in the city of Lafay ette, is going the rounds of the Whig press. Such kind of stuff is all the arguments that Whies can hunt up in lowing table will show the number of paces of laws in favor of Nick McCarty. They are hard run for ma- i forc at lhat lime not including the unrepealed laws tcrials: 1 inn ef ihinna u f hnma u rwl Y f l Im h ml i n (J m t iknm about party names and naMonal politics.

He gets up I presume, without ever having fixed in his mind tbe manner or matter about which he is to talk, and, in consequence, passes from one topic to another in so quick and incoherent a manner, that his hearers scarcely get a glimpse at one position, unlil he brings before them another, so that when he is through you can ; hardly tell what he has been talking about. Not so with Gov. Wright. His speech was also an honr inBength. He discussed almost entirely State po- . liey. His effort was a masterly one. It exhibited talent, deep research, and a profound and perfect knowledge of State affairs. His diction was smoothe and fluent. His manner graeeful and easy. He seemed to know exactly what to say and when to say it. His whole address was connected and chaste, and you could not have added to, I or taken from it, without materially injuring its classic symmetry. Jo Wright is deservedly a popular man. His talents, his purennss of motive, and singleness of purpose, cm- : nected with his assiduity as a public officer, entitle him to the highest regard of the people of Indiana. They have honored him, and will again delight to honor him, by re-eleeting bim their Chief Executive. Scott will Le in, and do her part. AMERICUS. not the documents got up to defeat Gov. Wright. We are glad to hear that Mr. McCarty has not lent his countenance to such a despicable mode of electioneer ing. If be sticks to it he shall be entitled to the cogno men of "Honest Nick." He does not ask to be elected by such a system of fraud and falsehood. The Right of Petition.

Yet some of the more resolute Scottites were determined to raise a pole. They failed to muster force enough in their own ranks to even get the pole on the ground, and of ne cessity were obliged to call to their assistance the gen erous hearted Democracy to haul in their pole and pre pare it for going up. Everything being in readiness, not one-fourth of the necessary help could be drummed up among the admiring friends of Gen. Scott to raise their pole, which was 122 feet long. Another call was made on the Democracy to assist, who turned out en masse to gratify this consistent cUus of politicians call ed Whigs. When the pole was up about twenty-five feet, this beautiful emblem broke by its own weight, and came down, soup bowl and all, spilling the soup and awfully soiling the feathers of the horror stricken Scottites; there lay their emblems buried in dost, and there stood with heavy hearts 'he elongated visaged paternity, wondering, we presume, whether their deleat was the want of capacity on their part, or an "omen" from heaven warning them of their inevitable doom.
