united STATES,
We have been appointed a Committee trom
;, hundred of our fellow-citizens, to invite you
• send Delegates to the Convention to assemble
io this place on the FOURTH DAY OP MAY NEXT,
and we do, therefore, most cordially bidding you
welcome, strenuonsh urge this duty on vout at
tention, and claim your best c tin it., to secure the
election of
Addressing ourselves to men who have felt, as
well as argued, and whose minds are informed
wf the daily political history of our country by
aw untiring and most zealous press, —we deem it
needless on the ptesent occasion to enter into a
long or detailed examination of the measures ot
wur opponents, but letting it suffice to judge ot
•or RULERS by the results of their schemes, we
ask them what they have to hope from the iuspec
tion, and you —-why you should commence or j
continue your political career by extending them
jour favor or vour voles. I
We ask the "YOI,NG MECHANIC to remember the
scenes around his boyhood's hearth in better
times, and under other'auspices, when the toil
uf his industrious parent was repaid,aud promptly
too by honest employers; —we ask him to re- I
member his well spread beard, and the hopes
with which his yuiing iniod looked toiwst il to ihe
life ol an artizah as one of industry, intelligence
eomfoit and wealth,—and, then, to contrast these
scenes and expectations with his deserted work
shop his unblotted older book, his idle journey
men, his undulled tools, his government reduc
iH ,T the wages ol laborers, his empty purse, his
ilbfed family, the difficulty with which he secures
even the most transient employment, and the yet
greater difficulty with which he procures pay- .
oient even from the wealthy.
•r IRELAND, to remember the pet iod when em- |
"barking from Europe, his strength and his child
ren his only capital, he read ovei the glowing de- ,
acriptions of our country—its mineral resources, j
Its kindly sail. it lenient and equal laws, its li- j
berty, and the certainty that sober industry had
ever promise of employment on the rail roads (
nnri caoals, those arteries through xvhich was to i
flow our nation's wealth, the product ol the soil:
We ask him to remember his hope of becom
ing respectable and rich in the FAR WEST, whith
rhe proposed retiring with his earnings on the
uublic works oi Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylva
nia and New York; —and, then, to contrast these
pictures and promises with schemes of internal
improvement abandoned, his countrymen aud
fellow-emigrants unemployed, his children un
provided for, himself a hopeless idler, often sup
ported, when pride permits or starvation forces,
by the charily of strngers!
We ask the YOUNG FARMER to remember the ,
returns which every "Harvest Home brought to
his father's collets, the wealth of their humble
but contented cottages, the expectations which
cheered him to labor by his father's sides at the :
plough or in the woodland, hoping like him one ,
4ay to become a title'" of the toil, and, like him, to j
beat ease wiih his family around him, under a |
free and prosperous government: and, then, to j
contrast these anticipations with his now idle or j
profitless acres, the uncertainty of sales and in- j
come, the defalcations of agents, the temptations j
f idleness leading him from his dull and unpro- ,
Tided home, where there is no hope in labor, no j
prospect of accumulation for comfort and repose j
in age.
TDRER to remember the tide of prosperity that
flowed so nouiishingly around him but a tew
years ago. contributing to his education and his
pleasures,—to remember his father's successful
commerce u hitening with its canvass the waves
cf every sea. enabling him to give constant em
ployment to the weather-beaten sailor, to raise up
poor but worthy young men in the skill oi sea- |
craft, to make the shipwright busy in his inter- I
ests, to purchase the labor of tne mechanic, to be j
ihe patron of literature and the arts, to acquire j
at the highest prices the staple products of the
soil, and to pay lor thcin tchen due-, —we ask him
lo remember the facility with which he made his
remittances from Maine lo Louisiana in perlect
security and at trifling cost, the leisure that was
afforded liiin to enjoy society and the blessings
which God showered over the land, —and, turn- i
ing from the past to the present, let nirn contrast I
these with the realized scenes of his maturer years |
tinder the blight and mildew of VAN BURENLSM- j
Contemplating the condition of his country more
at a glance than any other of his fellow-citizens, j
because in him centre, more than in them, the re- |
suits of the farmers' and mechanics' labor, let
-4iim behold sailors without employ,—mechanics
sent from hiin without work, —day laborers idle,
—silent ship-yards, untenanted warehouses and
dwellings, stagnant Hade, deranged exchanges!
We ask him where are the returns of last
year's sales, or of the yeat before! whatdiscounts
he has paid on foreign paper in which he has re
ceived his remittances? what costs? what fees he
has expended in his attempts to collect outsiand
: J„C,. A •
ins debts?
We ask him to remember the mode in which
be is now forced to raise funds to meet hisengage
njenis at Bank, the usurious means by which lie
sustains his mercantile reputation, in the hope to
weather the commercial storm whicli is desola
ting'the land! We ask him w here are his plea
sures new: his peace—his leisure —his hope!
Trade decay me around him; days of physical
effort and mental anxiety spent in providing foT
responsibilities nights of care passed in thinking
of the engagements of to-morrow, —day by day,
his domestic luxuries or comforts passing from
his home to the pawn-broker or the auctioneer,—
no time for fire-side intercourse, for reading, lor
enjoyment, for love of wife and children, for
deep, for food, fur piuyer! .4 "'hole >\ct leno con

; Cairo, Itiinfii*. —The angle of land formed by
the Ohio and Mississippi at their point of junc-
I tion, is intended to be the site of a city to be
j called Cairo. The spot is owned by the Mes
i srs. Wright of London, who have sent out a
1 million and a half of dollars to continue the
improvement there. It is also said tnat they
have offered a loan of lour millions to the
Slate of Illinois to complete her great central
rail road, which is to terminate at Cairo.
The important services rendered by this
vessel to the mercantile community, and the
disposition of her officers to be useful anil ener
getic in relieving the distressed, is again the
subject of remark.
The Cutter Alert sailed from here a week
since, under the command of her first lieuten

this time indisposed, remained on shore, but
directing the movements of the Cutter.
The Alert had previously exjterienced bad
weather, &c., notwithstanding winch, on the
report of a wrecked vessel reaching her offi
cers, they immediately got underweighin pur
suit, and found at the Cross Islands the British
Brig Repeal, O'Hara, Master, of and from St.
John N. B , bound to Ireland, with a cargo of

such of the crew as could be spared, repaired
on board the wreck, stripped her, and saved

! Jl JVovcl Defence.— A writer in the Philadel

jin reference to the Jtws as a body. One ol
the Israelites replies as follows ; "Can the au
thor of the pliillippic against the Jews point
out an Israelite who has been convicted or
even tried lor murder, arson, rape, blasphemy,
adultery, &c. Does your correspondent know
of a single instance where any one ol the Is
raelites has abandoned his wife and children,
and left them a charge to thejoveiseers ol the
poor? The writer then makes an appeal to us
of the press: "I ask you if ever you have re

THE undersigned propose* to pmbliih ill the city of
iSaltimorc, a newspaper to be called
Born and educated in Uic West, lie has known Gene
ral Harrison personally, and been familliar with his pub
lic lile since the coinmciilicmeiil of the war. lie lias
known Mr. Van liurcn, and closely observed his career
since 1886.
The chief inducement to resume the arduous and res
ponsible duties of an Editor is the hope that lie may
now contribute something towards the election of Gene
ral Harrison. The fidelity, ability,firmness and moder
ation with which that eminent cilizeu has discharged the
most responsible and difficult public trusts—his unexam
pled popularity as the chief magistrate of the Territories
N.W.of the Ohio, —the uniinpeEchcd integrity of his
public lile; his amiable, courteous and dignified respect
tier the laws aud public opinion, are guarantees thil, it
elected, lie will bring into the administration faithful
competent and honest men ; who will devote all the con
stitutional means ol the Government to restore confi
dence, and thus revive the indastiy, enterprise, credit
and prosperity of the Country ; now paralized by un
faithful and incompetent public agents.
The PILOT will review the eouisc of the present ad
ministration, and discuss freely the fraudulent singula
tions in the public lands and'their connexion with the
subsequent warlarc on the banking institutions ot the
country. In doing this the present and the past adinis
istratiun w ill be identified, and their measures examined
and contrasted, —the present unexampled condition of
the country, the causes in which it originated, and the
inevitable consequence of continuing powct in the same
hands will be boldly and faithfully treated.
The undersigned lielieves that the FedSral Govern
ment is a compact between the Slates intended, by a
moie perfect union to haimonise, as far as possible,
what would otherwise have been at conflict between lo
cal interests, —and that tliis is no less a duty than the
protection of our foreign commerse. The benefits to
ilow from a well directed system of Internal Improve
ments, whether it he considered as a means of defence
in case of invasion, or insurrection; of conveying the
products of the interior to market OR OK TIIBNSPORT
ING THK MAIL, are so palpable that the only objections
heretofore utged against appropriations to that object,
have been made by those who denied the power ol the
Federal Government; or by others who, admitting the
power denied the expediency, under the existing state
of the Treasury. The undersigned believes that the
Federal Government inay, bv |>eriiiaiieiii contracts with
rail road companies, for the transportation of the mail
and troops and munitions of war, oil the leading routes
of travel, accomplish a gcnetal system of Internal Im
provements ; and will enforce the propriety of doing so,
an t endeavor to show how this may be done by an en
lightened use of the public credit; —and also to develope
the incidental advantages to flow from such a measure,
by sustainii g die credit of the Slates, and thus restoring
public and private confidence.
Baltimore is central, and in some respects, the best
point at which to concentrate political intelligence
Should the expectations of the Editor be realized, the
Pilot will become the medium of diffusing the intelli
gence thus concentrated ; and whatever an earnest zeal,
some experience, anil unceasing industry can do, will
be done to render it acceptable, as a Commercial, Sci
entific, Literary anil Miscellaneous, as well as a politi
cal newspaper.—lt will treat political opponents with
candor and fairness, but will be linn and decided in
support of the men, the measures aud the principles
whose support may be identified with the welfare of the
ci.untVy ; and if in doing this, it shall be necessary to
retaliate, or to carry the "war into Africa," it will tic
done—the Editor will not falter in the discharge of his
duly, to please a subscriber or to gain an advertisement
—his press will be free and he will fearlessly discharge
his duly.
It is ptoposed to issue u daily paper at six dollars per

The first number of the daily will lie issued as soon

The Editor is admonished by the past, and will not

remunerate his services ; and this proposition is submit

him in weathering the storm.

As Monsieur LE SAGL mice wrote in a preface to
his translation of "LIFE OF GUSMAK D' ALFARACHK'
°l\hire say there arc many good thiugs in this (transla
tion) drama, because they are none of my own; and
some bad ones which I ain not bound to vindicate; and
whoever lays them to my charge will do me wrong; for
without vanity he it spoken, there would have I -ecu many
more of the latter, if I bad not abridged or omitted them.

expression, that the whole might assume a modem ap
