In a spirit of candor, we would ask the
honest portion of the Whig party, in what
way,mannerorshape, have we reaped advan
taee from the change which has recently taken
place in the politics of the country. Has
our currency or our credit been bettered.
Has it enabled the tt tenant of the Log Cab
in." to obtain a more just equivalent for the
hard labor he endured in preparing his
produce for market.
Some will, and have replied that Gen.
Harrison has not been in office long enough
to effect any material change.
This might seem reasonable if we could for
an instant forget what was told us during the
last Presidential canvass, by the " no office
party." It was thundered in our ears by
the stump Orators of the day, that so sure as
the election of Gen. Harrison was rendered
certain so sure should public as well as private,
credit revive and flourish anew. The long
expected perio.l has arrived, but has not
fulfilled the prophecies of those good men
honest and true," who in their insatiate itch
ing after office, sought to pull and entrap tin
"honest and unsuspecting part of the com
munity. '
Harrison Rbform: The Legislature of
Louisiana, having a considerable Federal
majority, have passed a resolution for the
alteration of the naturalization Law
that it willl require a residence f twenty
one years before a foreigner ran heroine a na
