Mb’RR tv, Agent, Minnesota. St. Paul, Febmary IWS 21-!ra SAINT PAUL, MINNESOTA TERRITORY, SATURDAY, AUGUST 14, 1852. Our position brings us in almost daily contact with the Whigs from other States. Detroit is a very favorable point at which to meet with gentlemen who are passing from State to State upon business, and bu siness men as a general thing are conver sant with the political feeling in their own localities. From these interviews we learn that the Whigs of Ohio were never better organized than at this 1 ime, and that their opponents in consequence of the unpopular course of the present Legisla ture, which is Locoloco, in adjourning over the summer months, together with the establishment of a system of inordi nately high salaries, in connection with certain local and personal quarrels, are divided and weakened. The popular en thusiasm for Gen. Scott upon the river counties and through the entire Southern portions of the State, is very strong, and a vast majority of what is usually classed as the floating vote, will be given for him. This has been heretofore the stronghold of Locofocoism in that State, but the prospects now are that it will go for Scott. The feeling among the Wings of the Western Reserve is excellent, as the recent turnout from that section of the State to the Falls of Niagara abundantly -hows. Of the eight thousand in atten dance from Ohio, not less than four thou sand of them were from the Western Reserve. In the State of Pennsylvania the feeling upon Scott and Graham is ex cellent. Our most experienced and best politicians concur cordially with the sen li-; ent expressed by Gov. Johnson and others from the Key Stone State in at tendance at Niagara last week, viz: that Scott must and will carry the State. A gentleman of intelligence who was in our office ye>terday, and who resides within ten miles of Lancaster, Pa., said in rela tion to the vote of Pennsylvania, “ Our Locofoeos are watchful and will work hard and with diligence. We are pre pared to expect illegal voting, pipelaying, colonizing and all other resorts to which they are accustomed, but all will not do— the name of Gen. Scott lias taken hold of the popular feeling, and Old Pennsylvania will be true to the Old Soldier, for when was she ever known to be otherwise. 1 shall not he surprised to see her give Scott and Graham 20 000 majority. Even old Berks herself is emulous of the honor of competing with her neighbor for the honor of voting for Scott. There are no fears of Pennsylvania—nothing short of a inirucle can prevent her frum giving liei support to the ‘ Hero of many battles.’ ” In New York the opposition are well enough united so far as leadership goes ; that is to say, Crosswell and John Van Buren, Dickinson and Henry R. Stanton, &c„ &c., are all pulling together for the spoils, but the material of the respective factions of which these names are the ex ponents, are by no means united. The Van Buren leaven of 1848 is still in the lump, and when the bread comes out of the oven the bitter taste will be there, let them sugar over the top as they will. If parties were all politicians and office seekers, the prospects of Pierce and King in New Y’ork would be good enough, but one-half of the Locoloco leaders in the state have sacrificed the position and principles which have kept their follow ers in the party even in name, and many of their followers will now support Scott and Graham. The best informed, most judicious and candid Whigs with whom we have met, put down the State as sure for Scott, by at least 10,000 majority. Still all depends upon the energy, zeal, and unanimity with which the campaign is conducted. So far there is no dissension or jar, and we are confident there will be none—in that case New York is safe. The Whig* of New York have called a State Convention to meet at Syracuse, on the 22d oT September next. The schooner Coral, condemned for a breach of the fishery laws, was sold at St. Johns, on the 3d inst. The Itoekford Democrat *ays the amount of travel to and from that city may be estimated by the fact, that during the week ending July 31st, 397 passen gers arrived by Frink &Co’s stage lines, and during the same lime there were 368 departures. Hon. Mortimer M. Jackson, the pres ent Judge of the sth Jud cial Circuit, is an independent candidate lor re-election. We hope to see him elected over any po litical nominee.— Prairie du Chien Pa triot. Adjournment of Congress. — Both Houses of Congress have agreed to a resolution to adjourn on the 31st day of August. The Democratic State Judicial Con vention to nominate candidates for Judges of the Supreme Court, assembles at Madi son next Wednesday. The opposition to making this a political struggle is daily increasing, and we expect to see the nominees very decently laid on the shelf. —Prairie du Chien Courier. AGENTS. The story circulated a short time since relative to the horrible murders—some 80 in number, said to have been perpe trated by the brothers Stupinski, now in prison under sentence of death, turns out to be true. They have confessed to every material portion of the statement by Stu pinski, to the authorities.

Frum the Detroit Advertiser, THC PROSPECT. Philadelphia, Aug. 2. Lundy’s Lane Celebration. From the accounts received by news papers, and more particularly, from those who Were personally present at the above celebration, we confidently infer, that in point of numbers, as well as enthusiasm, this far exceeded any other political as semble ever before collected in the United States. A conception of the number present may be formed from the fact, that independent of those who reached the ground by (he Ontario boats and by private conveyance, the tickets sold by other boats and railroad companies amount ed to FIFTY THOUSAND! The num ber addressed by Gov. Jones, of Tennes see, in the clear moonlight cf Tuesday evening, was more than sixty thousand! The universal feeling was that of ardent enthusiasm and high hope. Not a mur mur was heard. The influence of this eventful meeting will be felt all over the Union, and the echoing shouts of freemen will answer back from many similar as semblages, equally hopeful, enthusiastic, determined and true.— Galena Adv. Celebration at Niacara. —Mr. Greeley was on the ground at Niagara, and refers to the following significant fact: “ Nearly half the speakers on the ground, with many hundreds of old sol diers and others who shrink from addres sing public assemblages, were opponents of the Whig party in the last Presidential Election. Among these were John H. Bradley of Indiana, Gen. Wm Larimer, Jr., of Pennsylvania, Daniel R. Tilden of Ohio, and Charles Quin of Michigan, who supported Van Buren in 1848. Others spoke who were lor Cass in that struggle.” He says further: “ What we saw and heard at Niagara changed our opinion with regard to Ohio. We had previously considered that a doubtful State; we now confidently ex pect i<s vote lor Scott. It would’ cer tainly have voted for him in 1848; it was proved a VV hig State in the vehement contest of 1844; we believe it is note a Whig State, and still more decidedly for Scott. We shall be disappointed if Gen Scott does not receive in Ohio 25,000 more votes than was ever yet given there for any man, and 5.000 more than can now; be given to any body else. “ Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana and even Illinois, look better than we sup posed they did. We think Gen. Scott must have two of them and may have all. 9 ‘•The following is our estimate of the present probabilities of the canvass : FOR SCOTT. DOUBTFUL. ) FOR FIERCE.

Pierce’s State, pretends to quote the following as the 32d article of the Constitution of North Carolina: “ No person who shall deny the being of God, or the truth of the Protestant Re/ig on or the Divine authority of either the Old or New Testament, or who shall hold religious principles incompatible with the freedom and safety of the State, shall be capable ol bolding any office or place of trust or profit, in the civil de partment within this State.” That’s a forgery. We do not charge or believe that the forgery was perpetrated by the editors of the Enquirer, but there it is. The North Carol ina constitution says nothing about the Protestant religion —the rascally Locofoco forger has substi tuted Protestant for Christian ! What honest man, Catholic or Protestant, will not resent these constant attempts to cheat and mislead him by a resort to crimes which should consign their authors to the penitentiary ?— Lou. Jour. Lundy’s Lane.— Playcards werestuke up along the road from the Suspension Bridge to the battle ground, to this effect: “ Road to Lundy’s Lane. Bailie fought between 1,600 British troops and 4,000 Americans, in which the latter re treated ftom the field with the loss of all their guns, and 300 prisoners to the Brit ish !” The thousands of visitors to the ground were vastly amused at this evidence of Canadian spite, and at the remarkable coincidence between the opinions of Gen’l Scott’s enemies on both sides of the line. —Milwaukee Sentinel. A correspondent of the Ohio Cultiva tor vouches for the merit of the following receipt for making vinegar: “Take and mix one quart of molases, three gallons of (rain) water, and one pint of yeast. Lei it fermmet and stand for four weeks, and thee will have the best of vinegar.” Mr. Clay and Gen. Scott.— Major Ward, the Whig nominee for Governor of Florida, mentioned in the recent Whig Convention of that State, that while he was at the North, during the sitting of the National Convention, he waited on Henry Clay, then gradually sinking upon his death bed, and that lhe great Whig leader gave, among his last expressions, his testimony to the integrity, patriotism and virtue of Winfield Scott. New Land OrriCE. —A bill has pass ed the House for the establishment of two new Land Offices in Wissconsin—one at Stevens’ Point and another at La Crosse. The bill has also passed the Senate. DUAttllji with England. We copy that portion of Mr. Webster’s Marshfield speech referring to the recent demonstration of England on the subject of the fisheries. The Secretary speaks out plainly and fearlessly. The N. Y. Express well says—“ The right of our countrymen and the honor of our flag are safe in the hands of a Whig Administra tion, no matter whether it is Great Brit ain or powers less potential that assumes to encroach upon the one or dishonor the other.” Thus far, then, there is a wonderful and most significant unanimity of senti ment manifested by Congress and the Ad ministration in this matter. The speech of Mr. Webster at Marshfield, on Satur day, was a fitting appendix to the firm and dignified debate in the Senate, at Wash ington, the day before. For our own part, we have no apprehension for results.” Mr. W’ebster said: Mr. Sprague has made allusion to re cent occurrences threatening disturban ces, on account of the fisheries. It would not become me to say much on that sub ject until I speak officially, and under the direction of the head of the Govern ment —and then I shall speak. In the meantime, rest assured that that interest will not be neglected by this Administra tion under any circumstances. The fisher men shall be protected in all their rights of property, and in all their rights of occu pation. To use a Marblehead phrase, they shall be protected hook and lint, and bob and sinker. And why should they not? They employ a vast number—ma ny of our own people are engaged in that vocation. There are perhaps among yon some who have been on the Grand Banks for forty successive years, and there hung on to the ropes in storm and wreck. The most potent consequences are in volved in this matter. Our fisheries have been the very nurseries of our Navy. If our flag ships have couquered the enemy on the sea, the fisheries are at the bottom of it—the fisheries were the seeds from which these glorious triumphs were born and sprung. Now, gentlemen, I may venture to say one or two things more on this highly im portant subject. In the first place, this suJdeu interruption of the pursuits of our citizens, which hud been carried on more than thirty years without interrup tion or molestation, can hardly he justified by any principle or consideration what ever. It is now more than thirty years that they have pursued the fishing in the same waters, and on the same coast, in which and along which notice has now 1 come that they shall be no longer allowed [ these privileges. Now, this cannot be j justified without notice. A mere indul ponoo ol too oon'inmmoc, even if the privilege were “ but an indulgence, can not he withdrawn at this season of the year,” when our people acc rding to their custom, have engaged in the business, without just and seasonable notice. 1 cannot but think the late despatches from the Colonial Office had not attracted to a sufficient degree the attention of the principal Minister of the Crown, for I see matter in them quite inconsistent with the arrangement made in 1845 by the Earl of Aberdeen and Edward Ever ett. Then the Earl of Derby, the present first Minister, was Colonial Secretary. It could not well have taken place with out his knowedge, and, in fact, without concurrence and sanction. I cannot hut think, therefore, that its being overlook ed is an inadvertence. The Treaty of 1818 was made with the Crown of England. If a fishing ves sel is captured by one of her vessels of war, and brought in for adjudication, the Crown of England is answerable, and then we have to know who we have to deal with. But it is not (o be expected that the United States will submit their Tights to be adjudicated upon in the pet ty tribunals of the Provinces, or that they will allow our vessels to be seized by constables and other petty officers, and condemned by the municipal courts of Canada and Newfoundland, New Bruns wick or Nova Scotia. No! No! No! (Great cheering.) Further than this, gentlemen, I do not think it expedient to remark upon this topic at present; but you may be assured it is a subject upon which no one sleeps at Washington. I regret that the state of my health caused my absence from Washington, when the news came of this sudden change in the interpretation of the Treaty. My health requires relaxation. I shall iV-el it my duty, as soon as my health and strength will justify me in undertaking the jour ney, to return to my post and discharge the duties devolving upon me to the best of my ability. Distinguished Arrival. —About two o’clock Saturday morning last, a buggy was driven in front of a house on lower street in this village, from which a lady, (beg pardon) a person clad in female at tire, alighted with a basket which she carried to the door, called the lady of the house and to’d her there was something for her to keep, and again repaired to the buggy which was driven immediately out of town. Upon examination, the basket was found to contain an interesting young gentleman some few weeks old. He de clines giving any account of himself, and as yet some little doubt exists at to his paternity. —Mineral Point Tribune. Hung. —Ann Hoag, sentenced to death for the murder of her husband, and Jonas William*, a colored man, sentenced for the outrage and murder of his step-daugh ter, aged only 11 years, were hung at Poughkeepsie, N- Y., July 30 h. Both exhibited much firmness on the gallows. The woman made a full confession of her crime. EDITORS AND PUBLISHERS. President Fillmore and General Scott. —We are permitted, by the gen tleman to whom it was addressed, says the Philadelphia Gazette, to make public the following extract from a letter of President Fillmore, dated the 19th inst. It was written in reply to one the Presi dent had received from a warm personal friend and zealous supporter, and is alike honorable to the writer and the illustrious nominee. This letter was obviously not intended for publication, and would ’ pro bably never have seen the light but for the calumnious rumors lately circulated, by the enemies of both, that the President was desirous of defeating Gen. Scott’s election; a rumor contradicted by the whole tenor of the President’s life. It is for the purpose of doing him justice, and in the full persuasion that he desires no concealment of his sentiments on the sub ject in question, that the receiver of the letter ventures to make known those senti ments as expressed by the President him self in the freedom of friendly intercourse. [extract.! Washington, July 19, 1852. * # * * * I was not disappointed, nor had I any thing to regret, in the result of the Bal timore Convention. The approbation which that convention expressed of the policy which I had pursued, in the reso lutions which it adopted, was more grati fying to me than to have received the nomination. * # # * * I cannot doubt that Gen. Scott intends to carry out the principles of the Whig party in good faith, if elected, and it seems to me that lie is justly entitled to the support of every true Whig. I am, therefore, gratified to learn from your let ter that you intend to give him a cordial and happy support. Lake Superior Matters.— The num ber of strangers flocking to the Lake Su perior country this season is much in creased over former years, and the boats and shipping are doing a fine business.— The steamer Baltimore left the Saut on the 27th ult. on a pleasure trip to La Pointe, 400 miles up Lake Superior.— Several gentleman took that route to the Mississippi country. At La I’ointe they will take a bark canoe and coast to the Riviere Brule, then tip tiiat river and down the St. Croix to Stillwater and the Mississippi. The settlements on the south shore of Lake Superior are flourishing. At On tonagon a large, three story, new Hotel has been opened by Messrs. Paul & Mitchell. The opening was celebrated by a grand ball. At Eagle River a fine, large Hotel has been erected by an asso j ciutinn of gentlemen of that section. The building is three stories high, j The editor of the Lake Superior Jour nal has recently paid a visit to Kewee naw Baw, and crossed overland from Ea gle River to Torch Lake, 21 miles. He pronounces the country a fine agricultural tract, and passed over several copper lo cations, mostly abandoned. The Indians at L’Anse are opposed to removal to the Mississippi. Many of them read their own and some of them the English lan guage. Father Baraga, of the Catholic Mission, has recently published a Gram mar of “ Otchipwe Language,” a work of 570 pages, and is now engaged on a Lexicon in the Chippewa language. It contains over 1000 manuscript pages. The arrivals of copper at the Saut on the 22d were 27 masses and 21 barrels, equal to 16 1-2 tons, from the Minnesota mine; on the.2sth, 11 tons from the Ridge mine, and 13 lons from the North West, and on the 27th, 28 1-2 tons from the Minnesota, and 15 tons from the Cliff mine.— Cleveland Herald. Beef and Politics.— We learn from the Louisville Courier that a well known butcher of that city, the other morning, bought a couple of fine beeves weighing 1531 pounds net, at 5 3-4 cents per pound. This, in the aggregate, amounted to SBB. Soon after he made the purchase a couple of Democrats, in a spirit of banter, offered to give him 15 cts. per pound for cattle, payable on the election of Gen. Scott to the Presidency. He at once took the banter, transferred the cattle and received their notes as per contract. Adjutant Gennral Appointed.— Brevet Lieutencnt Colonel Samuel Cooper has been appointed Adjutant General to fill llie vacancy occasioned by the death of Gen. Jones. It is said the Colonel is a gallant and accomplished officer, and his appointment will give general satis faction to the Army. The Albany Atlas thinks Gen. Scott, is “ not the man to ride the whirlwind and direct the storm.” That may be. The old hero may not be able to ride a whirlwind, but he can, at all events, stick to a horse.— Bu ff. Rough Notts. Pierce Campaign Papers. —The Al bany Evening Journal enumerates the following campaign papers which have been started to support Pierce and King: London Times, London Leader, Man chester Examiner, Toronto Colonist, Mon treal Herald, Philadelphia (Native) Sun. Position or Gen. Scott. —ln reply to an address of the State Right* Conven tion of Alabama, Gen. Scott *ays that the only declaration of principles he will feel called upon to make, during the present campaign, is contained in hi* acceptance of the nomination. Tennessee. —Gov. Jones on his way to the great Lundy’s Lane Celebration, declared unhesitatingly, that Gen. Soott would receive the vote of Tennessee.— He says, if the ticket is not triumphant, there is no believing signs that have al ways been sure guarantees of sucoes*. NUMBER 48 Washington,- July 27. Commodore Perry states that it is sot the went of seamen that detains the Japan Expidition, but the trouble is in getting vessels prepared for the voyage. The Intelligencer of this morning re views the fish difficulty, and concludes by expressing the opinion that the time hae come to cease remonstrating or protesting, and for this government either to abandon its pretensions and inform its citizens that the construction for which the En glish contend is the true one, and that they must govern themselves accordingly, and abide by the consequences, or else it must insist upon its own constructioif and maintain our rights under adequate force, or propose an arbitration to settle the true construction of the treaty. ' It is stated in the papers that the gov-- ernment of Sweden has acknowledged the receipt of fifty thousand dollars from Jen. ny Lind, to be employed in establishing primary schools in her native land. A noble benefaction to a noble purpose. Most Detestable.— Some hearties* rascal sold some hundreds of defective cast iron pistols among the boys of New York, a large number of which, on the 4th, exploded in the hands of children, which accounts for the unusual number of accidents that occurred on that day. Hanging is too good for such a villain. A Sharp Wit. —Dr. Sloss and R. Armstrong of Lawrenceburg, Indiana,had a rencontre last week about a canoe, when the Dr. cut his antagonist in sever-- al places with a knife. During their trial a young lad was called as a witness and was asked if he knew what was the obli gation of an oath, and where he would go, if he told a lie? He said he supposed “he would go where all the lawyers go to.” River and Harbor Bill. —ln tlii# bill, which has passed the House, an ap propriation is made of $‘50,000 for the improvement of the Des Moines Rapids. Good News. —An extra of the Little Rock Whig says : An express arrived at Fort Smith on the 29th ult, from Fort Arbuckle, bringing the cheering news that Capt. Marcy and his command are still alive, thus falsifying the report of the Waco chief. This last report is probably true, though intelligence receiv ed at New Orleans, from Texas, appear ed to confirm the first account. Hauling Down the Pierce Flag! —The Star, heretofore a neutral paper, conducted with considerable ability, at Jackson, Miss., immediately after the Baltimore nomination, hoisted the Pierce and King flag. A “sober, second thought” ha., however, wrought a change, and the flag has disappeared. It is reported that Mr. Webster wa» offered the choice, to return immediately to Washington or resign. He chose the latter, and will soon be at the seat of Government. Cheers for the Ladies. —A lady friend of ours relates the following, whicfi in our opinion is too good to be lost: A few months since, herself, in company with two female companions were so journing for a short season in Kentucky, in the neighborhood of Big Bone Springs, and on one occasion when walking out were surprised by a sudden shower and sought refuge in a school house near by. The sudden appearance of three fashiona bly dressed women in such a retreat, ex cited, as may well be supposed, what the French call a sensation. The boys were astounded, while the rustic domine, welt pleased to be the recipient of so much honor, and at the same time wishing to bo polite, turned to the children who cluster ed near him, and exclaimed, “ Boys, boys; three cheers for the ladies! (mean ing chairs. ) The boys, more accustomed to cheers than chairs, took the words lit erally, and waving their arms gave three such yells as nearly frightened the ladies out of their wits.— Cin. -Was. Anti-Fainting Club. —The “dissent ers” of the Loco-Foco party in Syracuse are forming an “Anti-Fainting Club.”— They say that they have heretofore acted with the Loco Foco party, but will do so no longer, at least not till they can nomi nate something better than a “confection ary candidate." This is another touch of “Loco Foco Harmony”' There are many such instances. The Washington correspondent of the Ohio Statesman is evidently alarmed at the signs of the times. He says he is afraid the Democracy underrate the popu larity of Gen. Scott. They certainly do if any of them seriously expect to beat him. Boston, Aug. 2. The American schooner Union has been seized for violating the “Fishing Treaty,” and taken into Charlestown, Prince Edward’s Island.
