For the benefit of our Whig subscribers, we publish

TO THE WHIGS OF MARION COUNTY, AND
OF THIS CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT.
The undersigned, a delegation appointed by the
County Convention of the friends of W infield Scott, of
Marion county, to consult with their friends in the coun
ties of Hancock, Shelby. Johnson, Morgan, and Hen
dricks, to agree upon and select a candidate for Con
gress in the District, are now, after such consultation,
instructed to report: That, in the opinion of all, a Con
gressional Convention is deemed unnecessary that with
equal unanimity John H. Bradley, of Marion county,
has been agreed upon as the candidate for Congress of
the friends of Gen, Scott in this District.
In accordance with this selection, the undersigned
have addressed a letter to Mr. Bradley, informing him
of such result, and requesting him to allow his name to
be presented as such candidate ; to which he has re
plied, ;-ihat he was willing to support and would advo
cate publicly the election of any other candidate, and
would prefer so to do; yet as an ardent friend of the
election of Wintield S- tt to the Presidency, and of the
success of Whig principles, if it was deemed liest by
his friends in the District that he should be the candi
date, he would not shrink from the responsibility."
We. therefore, now present his name, and have re
quested it to be inscited in the general ticket, to be
voted for at the ensuing election.
Respect fully ,
SIMS A. COLLET,
WILLIS W. WRIGHT,
It appears that great unanimity prevailed in the
i-ounties. It is understood that in consequence of his
late connection with the free-soil parly, and his zealous
support of Marlin Yan Buren, thai he can now get the
votes of the friends of Hale and Julian; these added to
the Whig votes make him willing to meet the " re
sponsibility.'" To be elected to Congress is rather a
pleasant responsibility But to run with the certainty
it, requires some nerve, especially as this is

tributed to any publications in reference to the State
Election And I now say that if the Auditor of State
certifies to any items as being false, that ray party friends

are erronious or lalse as you say. 1 han bäseaBreeomg

This is the kind of news that is manufactured for the
border counties at the Journal office. It is caught up
and published by these small-fry editors who never in
tend to let their readers know the truth. Now, the
true retnrns show that one Whig is elected to Congress
by 300 majority, and one Democrat by 800 majority;
and that on joint ballot in the Legislature there are 'ii
Democratic majority, and on the aggregate vote for the
State ticket a Democratic majority of 1,900.

Editor or BoMliaaX: The prospects are bright
here for the Democracy. Willanl puts Williams Aon
du combat every time. The Democracy is well united,
and will give Wright and the State ticket a strong lift,
and will serve Pierce and King the same way.

More falsehood. Governor Wright never was a mem-
j ber of any Hungarian Association in Indiana He
gave mite tn the Hungarian fund, and in this Nicho-
Ual McCariv beat him, for he gave more than the Go-
vernoi did, as he was able to do. Nicholas McCarty
was one of the Whig Senators who invited Ciov. Kos
suth to visit Indiana. The act of the Legislature, both
Whigs and Democrats, made him the guest of the State,
and as such Governor Wright extended to him those
courtesies which the occasion required. Kossuth is the
able and talented champion of liberty in the old world.
He came to America to plead for his oppressed and
down trodden country. This is his crime a crime
which is magnified by the Whig press, in hopes of
making converts to the sinking cause of Whiggery.

Anecdote ol Gen. Scott.
An interesting anecdote is told by a Masacbui Its
offieer, of the wonderful foresight of our great chiel,
whose plans for the whole conquest of Mexico SSaso
made history, by altering the tenses from future to past
While at Vera Cruz, Gen. Scott sent for the head of the
Quarter Master's department, and said to him: ''Sir,
have you got everything in readiness in your line, which
i we may want between this and the capital?"
sir, I have got everything an army can possibly leqojso.
"Have you sent along any tn-penny nails " leu
penny nails! No sir." ' Then forward a cask of them.'
The officer whs puzzled to conceive what the General
could want with ten-penny nails. But when the " Na
tional Bridge " was blown into a mass of rocks by the
flying enemy, the General's admirable foresight was ap

that officer is Maior General Winfield Scott. Here is a
Massachusetts officer extolling the great chief for his
wonderful foresight m ordering ten-penny nails for r
pairing a bridge.
This Massachusetts friend would lead the common
sense portion of the public to believe that the tall hero
of the Whig party had not the sense be was born with.
Ten-penny nails for repairing the national bridge in
Mexico, when ten inch spikes are scarcely laige enough
to secure the timbers of a bridge! But the eulogist can
not be more than half witted himself. Does he not
know that ten-penny nails are only one inch and a ball
long, and the military chief only wanted them to nail up
the boxes which contained bis feathers. But this inter
esting anecdote is going the rounds of the press, and the
innocent Whig exquisites, many of whom have nevei
seen a nail or head of a spike, take it in as the hen a fide
" truth of history."
But, for their edification, I must inform them that the
national bridge in Mexico was not blown into a mass ol"
rocks by the flying enemy, nor was it requisite to use a
single ten-penny nail in repairing it. The flying enemy
had neither time nor inclination to destroy that admirable
structure of stone and cement, and the hosts of Xerxes
might have passed over it at any time during the Mexi
can war if ten-penny nails had never been invented.
It is requisite, melhinks, to nail such absurdities oi
our opponents. loth past had future, for they are a weak
race, and their plans cannot strengthen their cause,
however they may resort to idle tales nd subterfuges to
make up a history, if we only keep a correct run ol their
chicanery, and expose it intime to destroy its effects
