To offset these Democratic triumphs, the Whig, have hieved an immeasurable amount of bragging, boast- wig, and blustering, and have carried the elections two thirds of the time, in steamboats, canal boats, and cars, frequently by large majorities. If the Whigs are satisfied with the canvass so far, the Democrats certainly should be. While they boast and bluster, we rote, while tbey carry steamboats and cars, we carry States; and while they parade any qoao tity of Whig vote in the newspaper, we quietly de posite ours hi the ballot box. Hurrah for Piere and King ' More "Spitt i ns on the Platfoim." On the 17th of August Hon. Rufus Schoonmaker, a Whig member of Congress from the eleventh District in New York, made a speech in Congress in which he distinctly repudiated the authority and validity of the Platform of Principles adopted by the recent Whig National Convention. The Albany Evening Journal Thurlow Weed's paper says: ' This speech is a seasonable and eloquent vindication of the position of the Whigs of this State'' Mr. Weed evidently thinks the Whig Platform a gull trap to catch Southerners, while the Yankees are too "cute" to lie caught in any such manner. 0The Democrats of Clinton county held n large and enthusiastic convention at Frankfort . on Saturda v. the 29th ult.. and nominated the following ticket: For Representative Wilson Scawrigh.

The following is an extract from the article referred to The State Journal will please copy " We are led to these remarks by a request to copy one of the squibs at General Pierce's fainting, which so constantly appears in one of the penny papers of our city ; but ice should not only hold ourselves disgraced by so doing, but tcould bring upon the Courier 6,- Enquirer the odium of belonging to the same class of Presses as those referred to." PIT" The Cincinnati Gazette says "such volunteer citi. zen soldieis as Pierce ought to lie sneered at.' Because, we suppose, he did not go into the army from an aristo cratic military school, instead of the ranks of the people. It is well known that Gen. Scott and most of his Whig subordinates entertain a great contempt for "citizen soldiers" and civilians generally: but we supposed the Cincinnati Gazette was rather too cautious thus boldly to express its sentiments and the sentiments of its leader. Rich, Decidedly. The Whig presses are publish ing various extracts from the London papers. The wish lor the election of Pierce is coldly expressed. These are the same extracts that went the rounds in 1844, only that Pierce's name has been substituted for Polk s. North Rirer Reporter. The editor of the Journal keeps a lot ot these spuri ous extracts standing in the editorial columns of his pa per . Wonder if our neighbor can tell where he got them from? IE7"The Union parly in Georgia have withdrawn the electoral ticket nominated by them a few weeks since. There is now but ono Pierce and King electoral ticket in the field, which secures the united action of the Dem ocratic party. The Whigs are divided between Web ster and Scott. The former will, doubtless, receive much the larger number of Whig votes. ITHas our neighbor of the Journal heard from Iowa yet? If he has, why don't he let his readers know the correct result of the recent election in that State? It would be cruel in him to let his friends die in ignorance, especially when he so innocently contributed to that ig norance. ILTHon. Jeremiah Smith, Judge of the present seventh circuit, declines running for Judge.

The Locomotive of . he 2Sth. however, suffered a cor respondent, among other things, to charge this company with having paid "counsel, and others interested, to hang round the Legislature, to defeat every measure brought before it, for another ard competing outlet from this city." This statement is nierly and totally false. I have been at the head of this company for four years, and am conversant, with ill its afTairs. I have not myself, nor has any officer ot" the company, to my knowledge, opposed, or endeavored to defeat,' the passage of any charter in the State; nor has the company ever paid, or ottered to pay, one dollar to any person for any such purpose. The charge ;s wholly gratuitous; and as it affects me personally, I brand it aa it deserves. If the writer made it ignorantly, he is no less a falsifier; if wilfully, he is worse than that. Verv respectfully, JNO. BROUGH. Whig Ridicule of the Irish. The N. Y. Tribune has lately published a picture book in which Scott is represented in scenes that he was never in. and incidents that nevcrtook place. No one disputes Um right of the Whigs to put Scott where his feathers make the most display but the publishers of auch a catch penny affair, have no right to ridicule other people, in elevating Gen. Scott. Those who have looked over its silly pages, must have been struck with the horrid car. icatureof a party of Irishmen, whom Scott is represen ted as standing over in lordly attitude, bestowing some favor; as if it was a monstrous condescention on the nart of the Whig candidate just as the Whig party aro now pretending to be Catholics, for the sake of catching Catholic votes. The Irish American, printed in New York, thus indignantly alludes to Greeley's picture-book: "The Whigs have issued a campaign pictorial life of Scott, which contains one of the vilest caricatures of Irishmen which ever emanated from the filthy pencil of its evil author. Ir. a scene representing certain return ed Irish prisoners, one man is represented as kneeling in the most slavish and abject attitnte, while the faces of all are represented in such a hideous deformity, that hu manity has, thank God. nothing annul m it u. profile of one of my countrymen the artist seems to have studied an ape or baboon!

The Soap Factory. P. A. Hackleman, one of the Whig Electors for the State at large, in an article on the State expenditures, in the Scott Eagle, says: "What has the State realized from these securities? Mr. Bright says in his report of 1846, that the oil "Fac tory" in Brooklyn had been sold to Fred. G rifting for $20,000. We find bv reference to the acts of Congress of 1848, pages 105-6, that certain lots in Brooklyn had been sold to the General Government for $285,000. We have learned that this is the identical "Soap Factory" pi operty about which we have heard so much ridicule. Seme body has received $251,000 for this "Soap Fac tory," for the General Government retained but $30,000 la cover claims against the property. We have heard it intimated and charged that the Bright's realized a clever fortune from this Soap Factory. Well, two hun dred and thirtt-five thousand dollars of a profit was a nice fortune for some on, and was that much ta ken from the pockets of the people." A gentleman a short time since informed us that he heard Hackleman make this assertion in a speech, but we then supposed he was mistaken, thinking that, reck less as thi man Hackleman was known !o Im, he would scarcely be willing to manufacture such a base falsehood. But it seems we were mistaken. We have before said that so far aa the official duties of the office of State Agent were performed by Michael G. Bright, we challenge the strictest investigation. If Mr. Bright was guilty of any thing improper, make it manifest by the evidence, and do not charge a public offi cer with corruption in office on mere rumor. The pro perly sold to the Government, by Frederick Griffing, lies on Wallabout Bay, between the Navy Yard and the Marine Hospital, and was purchased as an addition to the Navy Yard and Navy rope-walk. The oil factory is in another part ol" the city, and has no connection what ever with this Griffing property which was sold t 'he Government. The whole story is a lie, manufactured without the shadow of foundation. More . I phaii ism Defrees, Answer. I it true that fifteen thousand copies of the Campaign Life of Gen. Winfield Scott, by Horace Greeley, came to the Post Office at Indianapolis without being franked' and that Mr. N. McCarty and John D. Defrees obtained them without paying pottage the postage on which would have amounted to over thre' hundred dollars insisting that they knew it was the intention of Samuel W. Parker to frank them? Were they not. in the ab sence of the Post Master, delivered to Defrees by the Deputy Post Master on this assurance, who is now dis tributing them, thereby defrauding the Government out of three hundred dollars. We ask the Journal to say whether this is true or not, as we have it from good au thority. What a Mistake! In the midst of tho troubles of the Baltimore Democratic Convention, when none of their able and distinguished men could be nominated, the idea of nominating Pierce, because of military exploits in Mexico, was started. Had there been one man there that knew the whole extent of his services, the Demo- cratic party would not now be placed in the ridiculous position they at present occupy. They find they have now got a candidate that is neither a statesman nor a general. Ind. Journal. This Democratic Convention must have been an ignorant set of fellows. What a terrible mistake they made! and how Johnny Defrees, is pained at the idea! We hope he will not have fits, nor go into a decline. The Whig Convention had the benefit of his sage coun sels and therefore avoided all mistakes. Thev nominated the very man. ETThc Washington Union states that the Whig man agers sent out eighty thousand copies of the pictorial life of Scott to North Carolina, during the late canvass there. But it seems that them "pictcrs" didn't effect their object; the operation "didn't pay expenses," and it will tako a larger supply to carry tho State for Scott in November. The Whig managers in Indiana are not only circu lating Greeley's picture books in great abundance, but they have got up a lying roorback of there own on State expenses, with which they are flooding the coun try. Democrats, don't be deceived. Hard Run for Objection". The New Albany Tribune is again reiterating the objection to Gen. Pierce, that he voted with John Quincy Adams against allowing Edmund Brooke to bring bis negroes into the District of Columbia in viola lion of law.

Now it changes the location to Bowling-green. We learn from a gentleman who was present on the occasion, that when Mr. Larrabee was called on, he rose and ex eused himself by stating that he was not a oandidate for any political office, but that he was a Demociat and had always been, and bore evidence to the talents and worth of Gen. Pierce, who was his mate in college We again assert that it was no speech not intended as one. J "The Indiana Journal says its statement of expenses, etc., was made and published a month ago, and now it calls upon us to procure the certificate of the Auditor of State to prove that they are not true. This is a new rule on the law of evidence. The onus lies on the Journal. Let it prove the charge before calling on us to introduce our testimony. We say the charges are garbled and untrue. Let the editor of the Journal get the certificate, and we will then meet him with our tes timony.

Thomas Dowling, Esq., of Terre Haute, is the agent for Indiana, and Illinois; and will attend to the securing of tickets for passengers, and will give all information required. fTThe Mobile Advertiser, a very warm Scott paper, says: "We have been free to admit, that, as a private citi zen, Gen.

Who ever thought of him for such a position, until he was nominated by a National Convention that could not agree upon any one else? Ind. Journal. The Democracy of his own State thought of him, when its Convention in January last unanimously nomi nated him.

Harrison incurred a great expense in moving from his home on the Ohio, to Washington, and in one month after his inauguration, be died. A bill was brought forward and passed the House by a large vote, giving a year's salary to his widow. When it reached the Senate, Franklin Pierce spoke and voted against it! That act marks the character of the man. Let it be remembered on election day! Indiana Journal. Yes. let it be remembered, that Franklin Pierce was not willing to vote away twenty-five thousand dollars of the people's money without authority of law or consti tution. Mrs. Harrison was rich. For one month's ser vices, as President, her husband received $2,085.00, which certainly paid him for one month. But it is a great objection in the eyes of Whigs, that Frank Pierce refused to vote away the people's money in pensions to Mrs. Harrison, and in useless and extravagant appro priations for creeks, rivers, harbors, ml inlets. The Democrats must be defeated in Indiana, because the Legislature voted a few hundred dollars to clerks and wood-choppers. Gen. Pierce must not be elected be cause he refused tfl vote $25,000.00 to Mrs. Harrison. This is Whig logic. Pennsylvania Nomination-. The Democratic Convention for the Old Keystone, held ai Harrishurgh on the 26th inst., tominated Hon. George W.

Let no one become discouraged because of former defeats. A majority of the voters of this State, we are very confident, desire the election of Gen. Scott, and if they can all be brought to the polls, theelec toral voto of the State will be given to him. This can only lie done by tho most active, energetic, and thorough organizations in every township. We do not object to stump-speaking. Olten much good is accomplished by it; but, that Whig who will go to work and organize his township will accomplish more good than can be done in any other way by one man. In every township in the State may be found men who have heretofore voted with our opponents, that are now inclined to vote for Gen Scott. Let all such he sought out, and let the proper information be placed before him to enable him to arrive at a correct conclusion. Let all such be reasoned with, and they cannot but see that it is for their country's good that Gen. Scott should be the next President. JLet the friends ol Gen. Scott make a vigorous effort for the State ticket at the October election. The result of that election cannot fail having some influence on the November election. It is important, then, that it should be carried by the friends of Gen Scott Let every man go to work, and it will be done. t3 Hons. Daniel Mace and J. G.

Mr. Brown: Having at an early period expressed my determination not to be a candidate for the office of Prosecuting Attorney in this judicial circuit, I was somewhat astonished to hear that I was nominated for that office by the late Democratic Convention an act for which I shall ever leel grateful to the Democrats of this circuit but inasmuch as my business arrangements were made in accordance with that determination previ ous to the assembling of the Convention, I hope my Democratic friends will not regard it imprudent in me to refuse to accept the nomination, which I now most respectfully do, and hasten to make it publicly known, that the proper steps may be speedily taken to procure a more suitable candidate for the office. G. M. o verstrebt. For the Daily Indiana State Sentinel. Terre Coupee, St. Jos. Co. Aug. 31 I have been absent in Iowa for two weeks, and the prospects west are a-s good as they are in New Hamp shire. The sanguine Whigs are expecting an imi..ense excitement between this and November, but the thing don't seem to come along. I had the pleasure of hear ing of two stiff Whigs in an adjoining township who would not vote for Scott because (they say) they do not like his principles, and I am assured there are more who are about to leave the ranks. You cannot get a bet out of Whiggery upon any terms. When it is con sidered that they are famous for netting, ar.d can control the money of the country, it is an indication of great significance. P. Jackson, Tenn., Aug. 27. The prospects of Democracy were never more flourish ing in Tennessee than at present. Every man, is stand ing up to his post ready and willing to do any thing in his power to advance the good cause. Disaffection in the Whig party is truly alarming to the friends of Gen. Scott's election. In every county and village, there are more or less of the Whig party, who are determined not to support the present organization of the party. Tennessee will give Pierce and King, a majority of at least live thousand in November next. A. John D. Defrees and the Indiana Journal De- nounced by John Davis, (Whig,) late of the Indiana Constitutional Convention. Pendleton, Sept. 3, 1852. Mr. Editor: I was present at a meeting in Madison county in which John Davis, a candidate forjudge, said from the stump 'T have not taken the Indiana Journal for four or five years, because it is a mean, filthy, smut machine.'' I may add that all is well here the beacon lights of Democracy are burning brightly. Look out for a good majority. N California Nominations. The Democratic State Convention of California, which was held at Benicia on the 29th of July, nomi nated two new men for Congress, in place of our friends McCorkle and Marshall; they are Mr. S. Latham, of Sacramento, for the Northern District, and Jas. A. McDongal, of San Francisco, for the Southern District. Mr. Latham is the son of the late Bela Latham, of Columbus, and brother of Col. Latham, of this city. He is a young gentleman of very fair talents, and as good a Democrat as the new State can boast of. For Supreme Bench, Hugh C. Murray and Alex. Wells, the former for the long term. The former was from Illinois, the latter from New York city. For Clerk of that Court, Mr. Woodsides, of Monterey. There can be no doubt of the election of that ticket, despite the strongest Whig efforts. Cin. Eng. E7"George Washington Reed, Esq., the gentleman to whom Gen.

The storv is too absurd for serious con sideration. iLTSome time ago we stated that one of the Native American papers in 1844 had at the head of its columns the names of Gen.WiVFiEi.n Scott and Judge John Mi Lean as the Native candidates for President and Vice President. Some of the Whig papers, with nothing t back them but their ignorance and reckless disregard of truth, have denied the correctness of our statement Yesterday, in looking over a file of the " Whig Rifllr issued in 1S44 from the Journal office in this city, w accidentally came across the following paragraphs credited to the " Philadelphia United States Gazette the leading Whig paper in Pennsylvania: "We noticed that one of the Native Ameiican paper yesterday nominated General W. Scott and Judge McLean as their candidates for President and Yiee President in 1848. "The Boston Courier, a few days since, came out with a well digested editorial in lavor of Native Amer ieanism. The Courier is specially favorable to Mr Webster. Wc do not know that there was any connec tion between the sentiments of the editor of the Courier on the subject to which we refer, and the nomination of Mr. Webster for 1S48." iCTJohn H. Bradley. Esq., the Abolition Whig candi date for Congress, charges that we. William J. Brown, have been an office-holder. Hear him: ''In the last eighteen years, you have been Prosecuting Attorney, Secretary of State, Deputy Clerk of the Uni ted States Court, twice member of the Legislature, Member of Congress. Clerk at Washington, Assistant Post Master General, Member of Congiess again, and now Elector of President, and Editor of the Slate Sen tinel with a member of Congress at Washington, of your own picking out, to secure yon a fat office there, upon the first opening." Now, what does all this prove? It proves that we have enjoyed the confidence of the people, the Legisla ture, and the Democratic administration. The people have not thought that we are quite as bad as Bradley thinks we are. We have stood in the way of your get ting an office, and hence your bitter feelings, Mr. Brad ley. The difference between us, John, is just this: you have always been an office seeker, and we an office-holder. There has scarcely ever been an office vacant in the State, that you have not been an applicant for it in some shape or other. You have been twice a member of the Legislature, and once a Presidential elector for Martin Yan Buren. In every thing else you have failed, as you always will fail you have been unlucky, because your principles were bad. and you had not the confidence of the people. Now we advise you to look after one Thomas A. Hen dricks, of Shelby county, from whom you have quite as much to fear as from William J. Brown, who is not a candidate. Unless you defeat him, yout war on us wilj be a harmless allair. We expect no office we want none. You do, and therefore you had better b looking after your own interest, and explain away your vote for Martin Yan Buren. That is a subject you must "open up. Captain Georsic W. Culler We learn by the following, which we clip from the Terre Haute Express, that the aid of the gresjffuator, Captain Cutter, has been invoked " Captain George W. Cutter made a chaste and elo quent speech at the Court House last night, about that brilliant hero and patriot, Old Chippewa. The speaker was rapturously applauded, and spoke about three hours to an enchanted auditory of both sexes. Wc have not room this morning to say more, but lope we may again hear from the Captain before he leaves Indi ana. He read many amusing extracts from the life of General Pierce, at which the Locofocos had to Mats, and some disputed its authentiritu for the purpose of evading the direct insult there given, to an intelligent people, by party tricksters and demagogues In 184S Captain Cutter traversed the West, from Uli ni.is to Pennsylvania, making speeches for Gen. Taylor. For all this labor he was rewarded with a clerkship in Washington; and when il was announced that he had been appointed Commissioner of Pensions, the Indiana Journal said : "It is said that G. W. Cutter formerly of Terre Haute, in this State, has received the appointment of Commissioner of Pensions, at Washington a place worth three thousand dollars per year. We should dis like very much to think so little of the discrimination ol the appointing power as to believe in its truth, as he is unfit for, and unworthy of the place." Captain Cutter is a powerlnl advocate of the Whig cause when they need an advocate; but when his friends ask an appointment for him he is pronounced "unlit and 1 unworthy office. Fit to make a speech, but unfit to hold an The Whigs and the Land Reform. The Whigs are endeavoring to create the impression that the Democrats are opposed to the Land Reform bill. Now what are the facts. The Homestead Bill originated with Hon Andrew Johnson, a staunch Tennessee Democrat. It passed the House of Representatives by a strong Democratic majority. Only four Whig Senators voted in favor of taking up the Bill The National Whig Platform contains not a lisp in favor of Land Reform. The same party which has always supported inonopo lies and privileged orders, to bo consistent, must oppose giving "Lands to the Landless." Our German and Irish citizens are earnest advocates of Land Reform, for tbey have seen the blasting effects of Land Monopoly in the Old World. Scott hates foreigneis. and, of course, their opiniens.

The Right of Petition. The right of petition is secured to the people by the Constitution. The exercise ol this r:gbt was denied by- Mr. Pierce, while a member of Congress. A short time since, the "Sentinel'' justified this course by the following logical reasoning: Indiana Journal. Gen. Pierce, during his service in the United States Senate, always voted to receive abolition petitions and lay them on the table He was opposed to legislating on the subject of slavery, and, therefore, voted against taking any action on them. This gave mortal offense to such Whigs as John Quincy Adams, who was in favor of abolishing slavery in the District of Colombia. We expect such Whigs as John D. Defrees and John H. Bradley, to complain of these votes; but the honest national Whigs, who are in favor of protecting the con stitutional rights ol the South, will never complain Prentice has not uttered one word in opposition to these votes. I bat is reserved lor the abolition Seward lug at the North.

The "Sentinel" says this is applying low epithets to the Governor. But suppose it to be true, what then? Sup pose that Gov. Wright has been guilty of filching the ideas and language of other men and pas-ing them as his own, would a person subject himself to an action u scandalo Magnatum for saying so? Doe, the Sentinel'' w-ant the proof that such has been the ease' We are prepared to give it. Indiana Journal You have made the charge now introduce the proof We demand it.

Will the Joui nal deny this For the Haily Indiana State Seat! Bel. J Mr. Ewtor: The Journal of Monday, leicning i the Democracy, says, "They have given up the con test.'' I will venture to say, Mr. Editor, there is not an intelligent man. whether Whig or Democrat, who has read the Journal's article, that does i.ot know in his heart, that the above assertion is unqualifiedly false, and the editor of the Journal himself knew, when he looked at the caption, 'They give it up,'' and when he drew the underscoring lines, that lie had commpneed Lis article with a glaring falsehood.

The application of the subject to this country is, that we must put the Whigs into power and let them instal the old Protective policy of the Tory party of England, in order to enable the farmers to raise bountiful crops oi potatoes, corn, and all thai! What a blessing Whig policy would have leen. if the Almighty had not given us rains, sun-shine, and. soil. All that "would be necessary would be to let the Whigs enact their tariffs, and the very globules of air would turn into fruit and vegetation. By a single tariff law framed by Carey, and be-puffed by Greeley, we could just as easily turn life into a banquet, eat and drink all day, and sleep all night and rise up in the morning again to eaand drink to the glory of Whiggery a party who proposes not only to improve upon the laws of nature, but todmplace them, and snub Divine Wisdom as entirely UjflBb rival the all-sufficiency of Whig staiesmnMkuarj, r Stat Good for Dennett. Ono of the New York Scott journals, having charged Bennett, of the New York Herald, with having sold out to the Democracy for the campaign, he pleads not guilty to the soft impeachment, and among other reasons given the following for sustaining the Democratic cause: "We have tried the Whig party for the last four years, and know that they are a selfish, scrambling, unprogres sive party, unsuited to this great country, or tho go ahead principles of our people. We want, therefore, to see the Democratic party in power from stem to stern from President in the white house down to page in Con gres for at least the next term of office, believiig that their general policy is more congenial with the spirit of the people of this country, and more adapted to extend I our limits, our growth, onr power and innuence over me world, than the timid, stand-still policy of the present order of whigs. The Democratic party have shown themselves to possess more of the old Roman spirit of growth and progress than the Whigs have ever done, and it is only by this spirit that the Union can be pre served intact, and the Abolitionists be entirely swamped and put down during all future time." Trw, every word of it. Fainting. We take the following little incident from an exchange paper. It will serve to show that the ' fainting" is not all done on one side : At a Whig meeting held at a village in the interior oi Michigan, one of their orators thought it his duty to charge General Pierce with weakness and cowardice He said it was unfortunate that the General had fainted at m-prv noint where his services were needed.

Why," said the frightened speaker, "I certainly have heard many persons say as I have here asefted .' No matter," rejoined the indignant soldier, "you must swallow your words or fight me. The man don't live, that could., with impunity, call Frank Pierce a coward in my presence." This time the orator fainted ! Scott Enthusiasm! The Scott Whigs made tremendous exertions to get up a grand rally of the faithful, at Harrisburgk, on the 20th inst-, and it was announced that delegates and speakers would be in attendance from all parts of the State. Tke day came, but the Scott Whigs came up missing! Notwithstanding every effort was made to get up a procession, three bands of music being engag ed for that purpose, the editor of the Union states that he counted fifty-six men and thirty boys in procession' It is said that Judge Conrad, one of the orators of the day, exclaimed, when gazing upon the solemn farce: "This really looks ominous.
