All Hail Old Pikk. She has put on the
-Collar of Dehocract. We have carried
our whole ticket, for the legislature by a
triumphant majority. The real log cabin
boys of "Old Pike,11 have spoken in a voice
of thunder, to those who have been msult
in them, with the disgusting mummery of
haTd cider, log cabins, and coon skins. The
final returns, for State and county officers,

From Marion, we make the following ex
tract from lhe letter f a Whig friend.

informs us, that Fiiilev. (W.) is elected by 6
votes over Huston. In M-mgonierv thp
majoritv, is 99. In Lincoln, Hus-
tons Maj. is 93.
Oar information !rom l.ewi, is contradic
tory. We learn verha'ly tint Reese. (D.) is
re-elected. This report is confirmed bv a
report that McDaniel, is 100abe;id of Glover
in this county. A fuend in Hannibal, how
ever, writes that Ellis, (W.) is elected by 20
votes. If this be true, it will be a gain of
one for the whig. The same correspondent,
ays that lmncy (Id.) has gone far the Dem
ocrats, as well as the county.
P. S. Since writing the above, we learn
from a souice entitled to confidence that Mc
Daniel is defeated, and that Clark has cone
for the Whigs. Warren has elected Wyatt,
(D.) by 7 votes. This is a change in favour
of the Democrats.
St. Charles has gone for the Whigs, by a
decreased majority. We have also a report
that Callaway has t-lected a Whig, and a
Democrat. This will also be a pain for the
Democrats, if true. It needs confirmation.
We have information from St. Louis, at
the close of the first day. Clark was near
500 voles ahead of R?ynolds and about 1 2'J0
votes to poll. The election for Sheriff seems
to be attracting more attention there, than
any thing else.
0y At the hard cider celebration at Han
nibal, the whig papers say that this county
wbs well represented. One of the many
flags, which our boys took with them, bore
the incription "Old Pike is not yet ready for
the Collar." For once you have hit the nail
on the head "O'd Pike," is not yet ready
for the collar of hard cider, and log cabins.
She has renounced Whiggery, and has put
on the collar of Democracy and in Novem

The democrats of Pike, are requested to
assemble at Bowling-Green, on Saturday the
15th of August, for the purpose of oiganiz
jng for the Presidential election in Novem
ber. It is not our object to exult over a
fallen foe, or to crow over our opponent,
but 10 meet as men, and adopt some system,
by which to counteract the ceaseless, and
untiring efforts of the Whigs, to deceive and
delude the people. Several addresses may
be expected, and we hope that every demo
crat, who values lhe institutions under which
we live will turn out. Let it be remember
ed, that it is only by energy and activity that
the advantage we have, cm be retained.
August "7th, 184a
KT The whig papers are publishing the
speech of Ogle, of Pa. on the expenses of
the Government. From what we have seen
of it, he seems to be well suited 10 do tlie
dirty work of his party and, to have merited
tne castigation which Gov. Lincoln, of Mass.
is reported to have given him Gov. L. is a
distinguished talented whig, and in reply to
ugie, lie irowns down, the attempt to make
political capital of such stuff as is contained
n his speech.
We ask every honest and candid man to
suspend his opinion on the subject, until he
reads the dignified and gentlemanly remarks
of Mr. Lincoln.
"LOOK OUT FOR SPURIOUS TICKETS.
We caution our Whig friends to be
ware of spurious tickets."" Rp.
5Zr "Whigs, look out for spurious tickets.
Lots of them are in circulation." Era.
"Look out for Spurious Tickets. The
Locos, driven from every position which they
have assnmprl- nnrl tAcnrntA in thpir ATneHi-
ents, are continually devising means for the

iiccompusnmcni 01 meir purposes. Tticueis
of every variety are distributed in the city."
GtrWe have been looking out Si have found
lots of them." Lincoln has been flooded with
'them by the Whigs, and here is a specimen
which a friend from Troy, has sent us. The
device is too shallow to requite comment.
For Lieutenant Governor,
M. M. MARMA DUKE.
John C. Eiwari,
House of Representatives,
"One of the mottoes at the head of the
Native American," a violent Federal Loco

if Mr. Van Buren:
-Foreigners trill make our clectitns a curse
i'lstcaj of' a blessing.1
MARTIN VAN BUREN."
"To the FcJeral Locofoco party belong5
the shame of having elected the only Abo
litionist Governor in the United States, Mar
cus Morton of Massachusetts."
We cut the two extracts above from the
Palmyra Whig. As to the first, we have to
say, that it is not true that the "Native A.
merican' is a "Federal Locofoco Paper,"
nor do we believe that Mr. Van Buren ever
uttered the sentiment attributed to him, in
the sense n which, it is here intended to be
As to the second we have a word or two
more to say. Gov. Morton is not an abo
litionist in the sense, in which it is now used.
He like Gen. Hirrison, believes Slavery to
be a "great moral and political evil," and
he may like him, look forward to the day
when a N irtii American Sun, will not shine
down upon a Slave." Bat that he thinks,
that Congress ought to abolish slavery in the
District ot Columbia, or prohibit the slave
trade among the slates, we utterly deny and
call foi the proof. More than this, he was
opposed hy the Alrolilionists, and Gov. Ev
erett, was deemed by them be the
least objectionable. The Liberator af
ter reviewing the opinions of the two can
diJates, "Moron and Everett,"said that Gov.
Everett, should receive the vole o f every Abo
litionist, and that Morions opinions "gave
But what is the object of the Whig in
making this statement! Is it by a few isolated
farts and a few individual cases to attempt,
to make the impression that the Democrats
of the North are infavor of Abolition.
Does not the Whig know, that the Wnigs
and Aliolitionists at the North are as much
identified as it i possible for two parties hav
ing different objects in view, to be? Does it
know that the Democrats nave oeen denounc
ed bv Northern abolitionists as Northern
serviles, on account of their course in Con
gress on the subject of the right of petition?

and the Whigs as a party against us. This
is no random assertion. e Enow that the
history of the two parties will sustain us, in
iu We pive a few facts and we leave our
readers, to form their owo conclusions..
1st. On a branch of nnebnevs resolutions
on the subject of Slavery, and the right of
petition, introducea in iongress iour yean
ago, there were 42, Whigs, and 5 Democrats,
who voted aeainst the slave-holding states.
The resolution, was in these words: "that
in the opinion of this House Congress ought
not to interfere in any way with Slavery,
in the district of Columbia. Among the 42,
there was no Southern man. Amng these
42 are the names of J. Q. Adams, W. K.
Bond, W. B. Calhoun, (one of the secret let
ter writers.) Thomas Corwin, (Whig can
didate for Governor.in Ohio.) Caleb dishing,
(author of a life of Harrison, for lhe Northern
market.) II. Denny, (to whom Harrison,
made pledges in 1836.) George Evans, (one
of Harrisons secret correspondents.) and
Francis Granger, (in 183C, Candidate for
the Vice Presidency, on the whig ticket.)
2, One of Athertons rr-solutions, at a
subsequent session, was in these words,
"Con gress has no right to do that indirectly,
which it can not do directly." Of those wire
voted in the negative on this resolution there
were 30 Whigsi and no democrat.
3, Slade, Gates, Adams, Lawrence, and
ten to one of the Northern Whig members of
Congress, are more or less tinctured with Ab
olition. 4, Of the Whig Executive Committee
of Congress, numbering eisht members form
ed for the purpose of aiding in the election
of Gen. Harrison, Smith of Con. Clark of
New-York, and Salsfonstall, of Mass. are
avowed Abolitionists. The latter has said
that he has always "considered it a
" sufficient ground for want of confidence.
" in Mr. Van Bjren, that in entering on the
u duties of his office, he made the gratc-
itous declaration, that he should veto any
" bill which had for its object the abolition
"slavery in the district of Columbia the
" the most objectionable sentiment, ever avow
" e lby a chief magistrate
5th. The thorough whig state of Vermont,
has more Abolitionists in it, in proportion to
the population, than any o'her state in th--Union.
The legislature is this purely whig
state, has passed strong resolution in favour
of abolishing slavery in the District of Colum
bia. The purely Democratic state of N. Hamp
shire, has passed resolutions condemning Ab
olition in all its forms.
KrThe correspondence between B. F.
Hallett, and Rev. A. Brown, w ill be rtad
with interest. It will be lecollecled that
this gentleman, first disclosed the letter, that
was written by W. B. Calhoun to bis abo
liton fiiends in Mass. Mr. Brou n.shcws con
clusively the object of the letter, and the
source whence he derived his information.
The letter from Gen. Harrison, to Evans of
Me. has never been published, and we put
it to every candid man of any party, to say
if Gen. Harrison, is the honest, frank, and
high-minded man, that he is said to be, if he
will not have that letter published, if he does!
.not. that he will be convicted, bef. ire the A.
merican people, of adopting a policy un -
worthy of the meanest political d'ivcler, in

CAUSES OF THE LOW PRICES OF
It is undoubtedly an exceedinly ingenious
device on the part of the opposition, to as
cribe the bad market for grain to the doing of
the government at Washington; but we can
tell them a story worth two ol it.
There is in this city an aged lady, who
has ste.i more than ninety winters, and who
lives ai.iu.st entirely in the recollections of
the past. Wiien she bears any of the fre
quent complaints which are made of the
hardness of the times, she invurt ibly says:
"Ah! these are sad times to be sue; very
different times from those we had under good
king George. It is all ow ing to that rebel
George Washington." When she is told that
busu.ess is dull, or money scarce, she is al
ways leady with the moral." well you should
have remained under the rule of good king
George." When people tell her of failures
and baukruptcies, how banks stop payment,
how nobody discharges his debts, how the
price of wheat at home w ill not pay for rais
ing it, she exclaims, "It is just as I expected;
it all comes of following that wicked rebel
George Washinston: the country will never
get riiiht until it is again under the rule of
People smile at th? old lady and remark
that she is in her second childhood, but what
excuse shall we make lor those who, in the
full possession of their fact u! tics, and able to
observe the progress of events, yet give quite
as childish a reason for the low price of grain?
There is not an individual of all those who
imput this low price to lhe doings of the ad
ministration, that can tell what connection
there is bet urn the two All they can say
is, that while a democratic administratton
. as in office, a decline in the price of grain
lojk place. S did the great fire of Decern
tier, 1835; so did the hard winter of 183C.
We have heard of a Scotch humorist who
insisted on laying every thing that went
wrong to the change of the Union between
Scotland and England. Whenever he cot
into any difficulty, be indemnified himself by
cursing the Scotch Union. When any trou
ble happened to any ol his neighbors, he had
no other consolation for them than to tell
them that it was in some way owing to the
union. Nay, if his kail bnnt was not well
seasoned, or bis parrith burnt in the making,
or if an ill done haggis appeared on his table,
it was odJs but be would find some reason
for laving the blame upon the union. Tuese
