MESSRS. EDITORS —The lime lias at last ar
rived when party prejudice is about to Cease its]
I baneful influence upon the minds of American |
citizons, leaving them free to reflect on the j
past: and when reason is about to resume Iter;
ithrone, we may conclude that a change in our I
Ipolitical affairs will naturally follow. That it i
lis high time that a change for the better should )
[be commenced, every lover of his country will [
iadmit; and gentlemen, the proud and patriotic'
stand you have taken in this moral reform of]
B"the8 "the abu-es and innovations upon our political
rights, is deserving of that liberal support!
jwTiieh no doubt the American Republicans of |
Baltimore can and will give. In your paper)
of the 7th instant, I find you decline calling]
ward meetings, as requested by a resolution of.
i meeting of the first and second wards. No
ioubt you have been governed by a sense of)
propriety in this matter, and I thereforo beg)
leave through the medium of your paper to
rail the attention of the citizens of Baltimore
.o this subject. As a native born citizen lam
.'ree to confess, that I feel a deep concern for
ary country; not alone on my own account, but
in account of my children, who are t j come
ifter me. This 1 believe was the principle that
roVerned our patriotic forefathers, who fought
rnd bled for, and won from Kings their liber
ies, and bequeathed thein to us as a glorious
nheritance, which the slaves of kings shall
lot win back again. Now it is apparent to
ill, and admitted by many reflecting men of
roth the great political parties, that frauds of
lie basest character, and corruptions most foul;
tavc been practised upon the rights of Ameri- i
;an citizens, by designing and unprincipled po-)
itical demagogues; and as foreigners have be- j
xime ready instruments in the hands of such j
nen to destroy our liberty and trample upon i
iur rights, is it not time that we should take .
teps to arrest an evil fraught with so much
ianger to the stability and perpetuity of our
epublican institutions? And in as much as
here appears to be conflicting opinions in re
rard to tho principles and policy of the Ameri
can Republican party, I would suggest the
iropriety to all who feel an interest in the
>eace and quiet of our common country, to
neet in their primary assemblies, in every ward
n tho city, and there appoint ten delegates
rotn each ward to meet in general convention;
me object of which would be to organize as a
isrty, and prepare an address setting forth our
irrnciples, (which would have the cflect of re
aoving the prejudice that many entertain,)
nd which are to govern our party; and let the
•orld see that we will not in any manner or
ray connect ourselves, or in any way be coll
ected with any religious sect or denomination,
saving every creed to its own strength, and
very man to his own faith untramclled; unit
i£ ourselves together as a political band of
rothers, and adhering for ourselves to tho sole
ause of our common country, to the re-estub
alimont of her national character and the
erpetuity of our glorious institutions, through
re agency of our own citizens, as a separate
eople, high nnd above the influence of mon
rchial despotisms.
[For the American Kepuhlicnn.]
SMOKY HOUSES. NOW that the political si
tcco has passed over our land, let us come to
ur (besides, and try to put things in coml'orta
to order there. Did you over, Messrs. Edi
irs, live in a smoky house? Never? Then
ou are a stranger to one of the most exquisite
f mortal annoyances, and Itavo yet something
> learn in the chapter of human misery—and
bile you have escaped the suffering which
iany of your neighbors aro enduring, you have
et to learn the effect that a smoky house has
n tho temjicr of a man, his wife and his chil
ren—to say nothing of its effect upon their
salth and comfort. As lam full of experi
rcc on this subject, and as the season is conr
lencing when so many of our citizens are to
aduro this sore annoyance, or find a remedy,
id having found a remedy myself, I feel that
am doing no small benefit to the community
i communicating the fact of my deliverance.
.After trying, in vain, many contrivances, —
A there are as many vaunted remedies for
wjky chimneys as there are for colds, coughs
'rheumatism, —1 at last found an effectual
medy in the use of "Espy's Patent Conical
entilator," which I had seen in use on the
lpitol and tire Departments at Washington,'
r many houses in our northern cities, and a 1
win this city—l saw one of those ventilators)
Mr. Hayward's, in Light street, but having]
iled so often, like tho Frenchman, I lacked '
e"grando confidance," but from its construc

v. It seems that most chimnoys that smoke, ]
so from tire wind blowing down. It is the ,
vontion of Prof. Espy, who has spent so ma- |
' years in the study of his favorito subject,
leumatics, or the laws of the action of at- ;
osphcric air. The ventilator is so construct-;
, that the stronger the wind blows, the strong- i
must be the current upwards. It is made in !
3 form of a cone, and revolves freely by the
lion of a current of air—keeping its apex to
> wind—which makes o partial vacuum at
of the cone, through which the
Kae escapes—thus performing tho doubleop
ition of preventing tho smoke from blowing
wn, and at the same time causing a draught
If we cast our eyes over our city, we will
3 a vast many contrivances on the tops of the
imneys, from which we ..would infer there
re as many smoking chimneys. This, pro
fly. is owing to the very undulating surfuue
the city—at once tho source of its beauty
d its healthfulness—and to tho great ine
ality in the height of the buildings, &c. But
latever the causo, the evil is palpable—often
a crying one—and a remedy is a great deside
ratum, as a preventive against foul air, soiled
furniture, and the train of moral as well as
physical ills, that never failed to be induced by
a smoky house.
Messrs. Editors, the publication of the facts
above stated, in my opinion, will be of more
benefit than a score of modern love stories and
adventures, and if it tends to relieve one suffer
er, when it mav thousands, I shall bo rewarded
for my share of the trouble in giving publicity
to it, and you will deservo and receive the
thanks of those who heed the suggestion, as
well as those of the writer, who is one of your
daily readers, and is as thoroughly an Ameri
can Republican as he is ANTI-FUMUS.
N. B.—Since writing the aforegoing, I learn
that Espy's Ventilator has been found effectual
in ventilating and removing the foul air from
vaults, banks, school-rooms, churches, court
rooms, &c., and that it is used on the ships of
our African Squadron, and most of the ships of
our navy, to purify their holds of foul air, so
dangerous to health in warm latitudes.
Exlract from I> Jl Plea Jor llie West," by Lyman J
Beecher, D. /)., 1835.
In the remarks which follow, the writer dis- 1
claims any reference to educated, virtuous and |
industrious emigrants. To the high-minded ]
and valuable citizens among this class, he ac- j
cords just praise:
"The danger from uneducated nririd is aug- i
menting daily by the rapid influx of foreign |
emigrants, the greater part unacquainted with i
our institutions, unaccustomed to self-govern- )
merit, inaccessible to education, and easily ac
cessible to prepossession, and inveterate credu
lity, and intrigue, and easily embodied and
wielded by sinister design. In the beginning,
this eruption of revolutionary Europe was not j
anticipated, and we opened our doors wide to !
the influx and naturalization of foreigners.—
But it is becoming a terrific inundation; it has
increased upon our native population from five
to ihirty-seveu per cent., and is every year ad
"It seeks, of course, to settle down upon the
unoccupied territory of the West, and may, at
no distant day, equal and even outnumber the
native population. What is to be done to edu
cate the millions which in twenty years Eu
rope will pour in upon us?" * * * "Since
the irruption of tho northern barbarians, the !
world has never witnessed such a rush of dark- j
minded population from one country to an
other, as is now leaving Europe and dashing )
upon our shores. It is not the northern hive, I
but the whole hive which is swarming out upon
our cities and unoccupied territory, as the ef
fect of overstocked population, of civil oppres
sion, of crimo and poverty, and political and
ecclesiastical design. Clouds, like the loeusts
of Egypt, arc rising from the hills and plains
of Europe, arid ori the wings of every wind are
coining over to settle down upon our fair fields;
while millions, moved by the noise of their
rising, and cheered by the news of their safe
arrival and green pastures, are preparing for
flight in ari endless succession."
The following occurred in one of the towns
of Massachusetts not far from Rhode Island.—
It is a compound of rum and benevolence, ap
petite and cunning, high and low depravity,
such as seldom comes to light.
"Husband, what do you think 1 have dono
to-day?" said Mrs. C. to the keeper of a coun
try store, where the drunkaid's "O be joyful"
was still sold, upon bis return home to dinner.
"I cannot possibly tell, my dear; I dare say
something clever. 0
"Well, I never did such a thing before, but
the man looked so pitiful, I thought I would
encroach upon your wardrobe a little, for once,
as I know you could well supply the poor crea
ture's wants without any inconvenience to
"You have gave away "one of my coat?, I
suppose; hope you didn't make a mistake, and
give my go to meeting one, did you?"
"Oh, no; 1 give away one of your shirts.—
lie said he'd none, and had called to beg one—
BO I gave liiin ona, and he went off" as happy
as if I had given him a cow. 1 don't know
when I have seen such a smile of joy at so
small a gift."
"Given a shirt! I should like to know who
there is so poor as to be without a shirt. Old
Tom Jones is the poorest creature I know of,
and 1 don't believe but he has got a shirt, as
poor a drunkard as lie is."
"Tom Jones!—there, I don't believe but it
was Jones; I have heard you describe him, and
it was him I know. He looked cunning, and
that smile of his seemed to be half joy, half
fun, and if I was Irish, I should say the other
half savage."
"Very likely it was Jones, for he has been
in the storo to day."
"Has he? and had he a short jacket on, and
holes in his pants, and miserable shoes without
"Just so."
"He is the very man. Had he a bundle, or
had he put his shirt on?"
"He had a bottle, as usual, but 1 saw no
bundle, and I did not notice whether lie had u
collar or not."
"His bottle! well, I hope you did not fill it
for him, f„. that would seem like the story in
the puper lately, where the wife told the hus
band she wuuld supply the drunkard's family
out of the house, us long as he supplied the
rum from the store. Did you let liim have
"Any what my dear, molassess or vinegar?
You have no objections to nry selling him any
thing ho will pay for?"
"Yes, I have, you know I have. I would
not sell him mm for pay, and y.ou may trust
him for any tiling else. 1 wish you would let
him have inolassso. His wife would be glad
of that. But did you let him have any rum?"
"Yes, my dear, I did. He seemed so feeble
and wished that I would let him have a little."
"How much?"
"Half a pint!"
"Half a pint! enough to make him get drunk,
and he willdpse his shirt before ho gets home,
and I might as well have turned him ofl' with
out it. Well now, husband, let me know, do
you trust Jones for rum?"
"Did he pay for it?"
"How much?"
"Six cents."
"In money?"
"How then?"
"In rags."
"In rags! I'll bet a dollar you have bought
your own shirt back again and I'll go this min
ute and see."
"No, you sit still and finish your dinner."
"No, no, you shan't go, I'll go myself. It
will be such a good one. I'll muko you ashamed
of selling rum this time, at any rate. There!
there! Here is it torn to pieces, and you have
bought it for rags."
ton Mercury of the 9th inst., thus notices the
"This fiill has closed beautifully, briugiug
everything in the vegetable kingdom to full ma
turity. The Sea Island crop is a good one.—
The orange trees have borne well, and present
a healthy and handsome appearance. We are
presented from Beaufort, with a magnificent
Pomegranate. We gathered on Ediston, three
days ago, several branches of full grown Olives
—from a tree loaded with the ripe fruit—and
though we have had no frost, the daily roses
around it were in full and fresh blossoms.—
There are indications enough though of old
winter's coming—Wild Geese wending South
in large flocks—Robins appearing on tho Sea
Islands—and several straggling Woodcocks, —
The pigs too aie marching into winter quarters
with wisps of straw on their snouts. We may
look out for bracing winds after the present rain
which ought therefore to lie tolerated."

There is also a Senator to bo elected in Vir
ginia, whose Legislature nominally contains a
whig majority of two members; another in
Delaware, arid a third in Michigan. In the
last mentioned State the whigs have not the
least chance. Therefore, in order to retain a
majority in tho Serrato, they must elect the
Senator from Virginia, and the Senator from

favor of the democrats since the table above

GEN. MONTGOMERY. On Thursday last, a
tablet was placed on tho rock of Capo Dia
mond, near the spot where General Montgome
ry fell, with his two aides de camp, Majors
McPherson and Cheseman, at Presdevillo, in
the attack upon Quebec by the American
forces, in the winter of 1775, '76. The tablet
is rested about fifty feet from the road, and
bears the following inscription: Here General
Montgomery fell, December 31, 1775. Pre
vious to this, there had been no memorial to
mark the spot where Montgomery fell.
FFOM ST. CATHERINE'S. Capt. Mason, of
tho brig John Enders, arrived at New York in
fifty-five days from St. Catherine's, reports
that tho markets were glutted with American
produce—cofl'ee scarce, the new crop not come
in—hidcs scarcc, and prices high.
DR. WOLFF RELEASED. It is stated in tho
Boston Transcript, on the authority of a letter
from Constantinople of the 27th of September,
that the Rev. Dr. Wolff lias been released by
tho Khan of Bokhara. Tho doctor was ex
pected daily at the Persian frontier.
JOSEPH BONAPARTE. The body of Joseph
Bonaparte was deposited on the 3rd of August,
in the Church of Santa Corce at Florence, the
temple of honor of tho great men of Italy.—
He is said to have left a fortune of three mil
lion of dollars to his widow and daughter, who
is married to her cousin, the Prince de Marig
liano, son of Lucien. The estate at Borden
toivn, we presume, falls to his widow. No
member of the family now resides upon it, ex
cept Lucien Murat, son of tho brother-in-law
of Napoleon.
A JUST SENTENCE. TWO gamblers, named
Jacob Arnold and Jonathan Hornberger, have
been found guilty, at Reading, Pa., and fined
#2O and costs, and sentenced to the peniten
tiary, ia solitary confinement, for two years
oach, for swindling a boatman by means of the
"ball arid thimble."
FORGIVENESS. A deaf and dumb poison be
ing asked "What is forgiveness?" took a pen
cil, and wrote a reply, containing a volume of
the most exquisito and deep truth, in ilrese
words: "It is the odor which flowers yield
when trampled upon."
ILLEGAL VOTERS. We notice that'several
of these gentry have been arrested in the city
of New York within the last few days.
We have the following returns from this
State through slips from the Nashville Banner
and Columbia Observer, which are compared
with tho Governor's election when the whigs
had a majority of 3833.

(hay's majority in 27 counties, 6498, being a gain
of 1536.
The whigs appear to he successful in this
State, in electing the three Clay Electors, Go
vernor, member of Congress, and a majority of
the Legislature, thus securing a U. S. Senator
in place of Mr. Bayard, and thereby giving the
whigs a majority in that body on the 4th of
March next. We have the vote only of New
castle county, where the whig majority is 152,
being a gain over 1840, of 26 votes, when Har
rison carried the State by a majority of 1083,
a gain of 351 since the Congressional election
of '.842, when the whigs carried the State by
9 votes.
We have nothing but reports from this State,'
and they are that it has gone for Polk by at
least 1000. The Louisville Journal says the:
whig gain in 49 counties is only 186, and that
Polk has no doubt received her electoral vote.
The Southern mail failed to connect at Wa
shington in time for the cars, and we are there
fore indebted to Mr. L. G. Alexander, special
agent of the post office department, for addi
tional news from this State, received through j
the Telegraph:
All the counties are in but 10, and Polk's:
majority 1170, which will be increased.
Mr. Clay bos this State by a decided ma
The majority for Mr. Clay in St. Louis cily
and county is about 300. In 1840, Harrison's
maj. was 641. Barlow, whig, is elected clerk i
of tho county court.
The returns from this State indicate
Mr. Polk's majority will at least roach 8,000, i
and probably 10,000.
of the Presidential election at St. Louis, says
tho Republican, when Col. Benton offered his
voto at tho Fourth ward poll, it was challenged 1
by a Whig, who thought that a U. S. Senator.
was no more than any other man in an elec- '
tion. The exception was upon the ground
that tho Senator was not a citizen of the State;
he, however, was sworn, And upon his state
ment that he considered St. Louis us his place
of residence, he was permitted to vote. It is
something singular to see the representative of
a Stato compelled to swear whether he is a rea
dout of the State or not.
A HANDSOME ACT. Mr. O'Sullivan, thoedi
tor of the N. Y. Morning News, did a hand
some and gentlemanly act a few days ago that
merits general approbation. He had betted:
$l6O against a beautiful saddle horse, upon
some particular result, and won his wager. The
horse was accordingly delivered to the winner.
But he, having learned that it was a favorite
with the wife of the loser, rode it to the houso
of the ludy, and there assured her, that he
could not deprive her of her pet, and begged
her acceptance of tho animal. The offer thus
gracefully made, was graciously accepted.
Messrs. Editors: By an advertisement in your
journal of yesterday, I see that Prof. Whitney
intends delivering a lueture on popular oratory,
in Calvert Hall, to-morrow evening—anil, hav
ing had the pleasure of hearing him, I de-ire
to hear testimony to the capacity of Mr. W. to
fulfil the task he has undertaken. He possesses
a voice singularly melodious and ofastonishing
power and flexibility, and brings to the aid of
liis profession both genius and education. The
pieces he selects are always delivered with just
discrimination, and with the most thrilling and
happy effect. His impersonations of Clay,
McDuflie, and Randolph, are almost without a
fault, and are always most rapturously ap
In other cities his lectures have beon emi
nently successful—and I hope that the ladies
of Baltimore, whose charms are so many and
powerful, will use their influence iu behalf ot
the youthful lecturer, and thereby insure as
brilliant and as numcrout an audience as have
graced his efforts elsewhere. W. B.
GOVERNOR PORTER. The N.York Tribune,
says the Philadelphia Sun, is right in its doubts
as to Governor Porter's refusal to sign the
electoral returns. The report, set on loot here j
for gambling purposes, is without the slightest<
ROBBERY AT NAUVOO. On the IGlli ultimo, J
the store of Mr. Harrison Kimball, of Nauvoo, j
was robbed. A small safe, painted green, was I
taken, containing about $4OO, in gold, silver and j
paper money. A receipt Ibr $6OOO worth of |
notes, given by Gamble &, Walker; certificates
of stock for $lO,OOO of the Farmers' and Me- j
chanics' Insurance Co., of St. Louis, and sun- j
dry pieces of dry goods were also taken away, ;
and nothing has since been heard of either the j
goods, papers or money.
TROUBLE AT HALIFAX. A letter from llali- 1
fax, dated the 4th inst. says, that there is much '
excitement there in consequence of some dif- '
ferencc between the mail officer, Lieut. Am- !
brose and the Governor, by reason of which 1
tho Acadia took no mail from Halifax. The
Governor chartered the Margaret, (the reserve
at Halifax,) to go out with the mails.

in Amherst College, Mass. The Professorship
is conferred upon Alonzo Gray, author of "Sci

LARGE HOG. Mr. Samuel Dudley, of East
Montpelier, Vt., killed on the Ist inst., a pork
