Being entitled to traverse, lie cannot he tried, under the present in formation, until the next assizes of Lim erick, to he hnlden in the spring of 184.9. His departure for this country has there fore, it is probable, only been delayed a few days hv the prosecution flies insti tuted against him. Mr. Meagher was arrested (or language used in addressing the Rathkeale dub, which is thus des I cnlied in the information: “ That the said Thomas F. Meagher did on the fifth of July last, at Rathkeale, in the county of Limerick, deliver a sedi- j tions speech before an assemblage of per sons. calling on them “to organize force | to obstruct the execution of the law, and ! be prepared to prevent the law from ! being carried out, hv force: in case a similar attempt was made as in the case of John Mitchell, to strike such a blow as should prevent the law being carried out by force in such a case.’ ” Cass against Internal Improvements —The Alabama State Gazette, a zealous “Cass and Butler” paper, says, briefly and truly, “That Mr. Cass is totally opposed to the system ol internal Improvements hv the General Government, is sufficient I v pro ved by his endorsement of the Baltimore Plat form” This will suit (lie west under (he ‘cir cumstances,’ though it may create ‘ noise and contusion.” Hr Don’t Swear. —Major Gaines of Kentucky, said, in his speech atFaneuil Hall: “Taylor does not swear. I have known him long, have slept in his tent and been on the most intimate terms with him; yet 1 never heard him utter a profane woid. Once, though. T remember his telling me he was sorely tried. It was at the bat tle of Okeechobee, where the Missouri volunteers were so hard pressed, that they fell into disorder: and finally re treated. “where are you going!” asked Col. Taylor, riding np to their head. They said that they had been ordered to retreat. You lie, you scoundrels!” an swered Taylor. “And,” said old Zack, “1 believe I cursed them.’” Bolting in Michigan. — Ft is stated that Chas. D. Smith, Esq., for many years if not now, editor of the Adrian Watch tower, (loco) and Secretary ftf the last Senate, was one of the ollicers of the Barnburners’ meeting at Adrian, on the 14lh. Barnburnerism has taken deep root in Southern Michigan ami promises !to completely up.root the remotest pros pects of Cass and Butler in that section of the State. VOL. VIII.—No, 2 Aren. Taylor’s Principles. The Locofoco press, with an amiable gen erosily, profess lo he very solicitous lest die Whigs may be deceived about Gen. Taylor’s principles - They say he has not declared | himself a Bank man, ora Tariff man, or an Internal improvement man, &c., and that for all he has yet said on these subjects, lie may ho a thorough-going locofoco—ho may rnl like John Tyler; and make up a Cabi net exclusively of the progressive democra. cy. Wo pass by the very obvious suggestion, that if the old General were not a fl'/iig. he would most probably have been nominated by our opponents; and that if they really thought him a disguise l’ l dcinocral, diey would he very unlikely - lo rouse our; suspicions a bout it —and we proceed lo consider die Truth of the allegations, What do we mean by political principles! we mean the rules of morality, die dictates of justice, honesty ami good faith applied to the affairs of government, and Iho conduct of public business. Wo know the others seem by their conduct lo mean a I’rfeie t hing. But to return to General Tin lor and ilia Winn Principles. Accordingly to our def inition, we hold Whig principles to be these. I. Thai Government is instituted for the common good —ornaiialiw from die common authority—and exists by the common con sent—of the people. 9. That as it is impossible for the peo ple to legislate in poison, by (lie reason of ihe numbers, they must make laws, through iho representatives, elected by themselves fora limited time, and responsible lo diem for iheir conduct. 3, That, an executive head being neces sary tor Ihe’adniinistralion ot (he government this unavoidable d elega'ion of power lo ono man, shall he limbed and confined by every leslriclion, continent with an officiant dis charge of the executive functions. 4, That the will ofthe people, as expres Bi d in the laws passed by their representa tives in Congress ought to be carried into effect in almost every conceivable case, for the simple n ason that it is their will, expres so.I tnroiigh their repie.-entaiives in the mode provided by the Constitution. 5, That the power of (he veto confidedt to tlie President, is intended <>El\ fir ex-| Heine and exigent cases— lor cas. a in which ihe legislature migl t a t -mpt tn bie.ik down and destroy iho executive dcparlrnen' or might [lass improper laws through inad verieul haste or corrupt design. 0. That tl.e abuse of the veto, for the purpose of arresting legislation, not of this character of legislation, deliberately entered into, alter mature consideration warranted by numerous precedents, approved by the practice of former Presidents and legislatures and sanctioned by tlie solemn judgement of the Supreme Court of tlie United Slates—is a dangerous end alarming usmpa'ion. 7. I iial lo sustain such practice, is to de feat the great end and aim of Republican Government; and, under tin* specious pre text of a i heck upon hasty legislation, vir m dly to transfer the power of making laws from die Representatives of the people to the President alone. Now these are tlie fundamental principles ofthe \Vh ; g party: to thrte Gen. Tie.! r ! has tin equivocally given his assent, and de clared his intention to adhere. Me has ! pinelaimed that he would have nofrlmds In itu uni, an Ino mcm c* lo pu.ii.h —that lie I would leave Ihe d ily nflccris/atiou lo the Itep rescnlntircs of the people, not interposing bis veto, unless in case of manifest neces sity—and that he would administer the gov ernment on Ihe principles respected and ob served by the eatlier Presidents ofthe Ho public. To those principles, the so-called Dentine racy of ibis day are opposed. For nearly twenty years, their administration have been progressing further and further in disregard ing and violating them; until they have, as we trust attained their climax, in Ihe te cent assumptions of the power to make war —to annex territory by conquest—and to establish territorial governments, without the knowledge, of (he people’s representatives. As to the Bank, the Tariff, and the other questions alluded to, those are not princi ples—:hey are measures. It is true that no measure ought to bo adopted; unless it be ; const iUilinnal. Rut admitting it lo be ennsli tulional, it may or may not be expedient: it may or may not consist with the dictates of sound 'policy. What is expedient and proper at one lime, may not be so at anoth er.—lt is for tlie representatives of the peo ple 10. consider and decide on these ques, j lions, lit their funds, where the people , have reposed the trust, Gen. Taylor declares Ids intention to leave it - and with that dec laralion for our own part, we ate entiiely content. — Richmond Vhtg.

In the sum mcr ol 1817, it was removed to the new building it now occupies in Tremont Street, near Court Street, which was erected for (he express purpose. At this place it was first thrown open to the public, on November 2d, 18)7. i'o those who have not visited the es tablishment, the following brief sketch may not be uninteresting. The building occupies a situ extending 148 feet from Tremont Street, to Court Square; mea suring Id:') feet upon Hie former, and 117 at the latter.

Four men were passing ov or the bridge when it was struck with one of those sudden and strong gusts of wind which frequently rush through the chasm with the tremendous force ofa hurricane, and so twisted it as to turn it bottom upwards. The men caught in the wiies, and in this position—suspen ded JOG feel above the resistless waters beneath —they were enabled to maintain themselves un til the alarm was given al the Falls, a mile and a ball distant, and the whole population in a bo dy rushed to the rescue.—The bridge was return ed to its former position, and the men saved. The affair produced the must profound sensation for a time. ‘Gen. Taylor never held a Civil Office.’ —So says the Locofocos.und the irresistablc er go to which they arrive from the premises is, j n the statement of the whole proposition, as fol lows:—“Gen. 'Paylor never held a civic office: therefore Gen. Taylor nevci ought to hold i civic office.”—And these same sound and con clusive rcasoners would doubtless stale another proposition with equal falili in its correctnc*s|t.lnifl “Gen. Cass lias holden civic office all his life* therefore Gen Cass ought to hold civic office during the remainder of his existence.

Taylor.—A '•orrespondeut of the Sabin Gazette writes as follows concerning the opinion of Ex-President Adams, respecting the proposed nomination of Gun. Taylor. An effort seems lobe making, by the “Fioe Soil” leaders, to give the impression to the pub lic mind that the late John Quincy Adams fully approved and co-operated in the course they are now pursuing. In confirmation of this, we find the son of Mr. Adams leading the van in the en terprise. Wo happen to know, upon authority that cannot be questioned, that Mr. Adams was of opinion /hat Gen. 'Baylor was the only man who could be supported by the Whigs jfir the Presidency with :■ probable chance of success, — and, all thing considered, was the best man for tiie office. —II any one questions this* assertion, we have it in a form that will remove all cavil, and will indue timnjlay it before the public. In the mean time, wo ask our friends to consider whether it is their duty to follow their antisla very notions to the extreme, when so intelligent and ardent an opponent of slavery as Mr. Adams was of the opinion that “to promote the election of Gen. Taylor, was the bust means of prevent ing tiie extension of slavery, and continuation of the ravages of war” Delaware State Convention.

One of (lie Association certiti cates of stock has been sent to us. it is us follows; •‘WESTERS' LAND ASSOCIATION. ‘•Hu it known that Lewis Cass, Henry Hiili- Francis O. J.

He it known, also, that said stock is transfera ble in whole,or in parts not less than one thou send dollars, by an assignment of this certificate by said or his Attorney, and record thereof being made by the Secretary in llio trails lor book ofthe Association. Washington City, , 1336* • Secretary. President.''’ This Association for purposes of land speculation was formed when Lewi* Cass was Secretary of War under Gen. Jackson. Cass himself, the chief of the speculators, paid in §20,000, and others paid in §IOO,OOO, making a total ol §120,000. Tue contemplated capital ol §220,000 was nut obtained. The plan ol the As sociation was to enter lands in the West and hold them up for a vast increase of value. Cass being Secretary of War, and in virtue of his official station, having important advantages over private indi viduals, the Association gave him the control of the whole business. He ap pointed the agent to make the entries of land—selecting bis own agent and agree ing to be responsible lor bis own acts. The agent went to the West and made purchases, all under Cass’s direction, and the hitter, directly and through his agent, continued to have the management of the lands. Alter several years delay, the mem bers of (he Association began to have s trong suspicions that there was little or no probability ol their ever getting any thing for their money. All their appli cations 10 Cass for information were of no avail. Nothing satisfactory could be learned from him. After a consultation with each other, they appointed Hon. Henry Hubbard, one of their own num ber, and then or since U. S. Senator from New Hampshire, to look alter their in terests and ascertain if Cass and his agent had dealt by them fairly and honorably. Mr. Hubbard opened a correspondence with Cass, but, failing in every effort to get any satisfaction from him; he wrote a final letter informing the Hon Si-ere tarv of W ar that he was a rascal, and the Mon Secretary was quiet ami silent un der the charge. Air Hnbbatd charged him with swindling his associates, and the Hon Secretary, instead of exhibiting resentment or attempting to prove his innocence, admitted by bis silence the justice of the accusation, and even to this day the Association has not been able to get anything out of him. W e are authorized to make this state ment by a member ofthe Association, a gentleman who paid §IO,OOO into the hands ol Cass or his agent and has never received anything whatever in consider ation of his money Our informant re quests us, if tile villainy is denied, to call on Hon Henry Hubbard for a state ment ofthe truth —to demand ol him a publication ofthe letters that passed be tween him a”" '’ass. particularly the letter to the Hon Secretary of War, charging him with villainy in all its forms. We shall enclose a copy of this paper to Gen. Cass, and, it he has any thing to say, let him speak out or author ize some of his organs to speak for him. Mr. Hubbard, the public are aware, is a prominent LocoFoco, and was the man that nominated Mr. Polk in the Balti more Convention four years ago. It was bad Plough in all conscience lor the head of the War Department to i become a member of an association for speculating in lands—to use the advanta ges of his high otlice, one of the very highest in the Government, for monopi lizing lands, through the influence of an immense capital, to the great disadvan* tage and detriment of the poor emigrant. Such an operation on the part of a Sec retary of \Var would have been in the extremes! degree censurable, even if there had been nothing dishonest or un fair in his treatment of his associates; but it it is a fact, as charged, that, to the monstrous impropriety and shameless ness of entering into such a speculation, the Secretary added the crime of cheat ing or over reaching his associates, he deserves an immortality of infagiy. The man who, as Secretary of War, | speculated so entcnsively in-Western : lands, and who, by that and other means, : Ins accumulated property to the amount of a million of dollars, is now a candi date for the Presidency. It, with a high office and a salary of §fi,ooo, he could operate thus largely as a land speculator what might he not be expected to do with a still higher office and a salary of §-5,000! If no sense of propriety could restrain him from connecting himself with a secret association for the monop* oly of public lands when he was a mem ber a I the Cabinet, what could he relied on to restrain him from a similar pro ceed.ng if he were President. Look al this thing, f ello\v citizens, Whig ami Democrats, ami decide lor yourselves in your own honet mind* if this land speo ulaling Secretary of War, whether guilty of the crime, laid to his charge by lion. Henry llnbbard and ins other associates, of defraud ing ami swindling them, is tne man you will elevate to die Presidency. Selling White ificn.
