CIVIL WAR RECOMMENDED. Two of the Government paper are urging upon the people Id resort to eiail war, to prevent Gen. Harrison from being installed as President, provi ded he should be elected. We request ever; re flecting man to examine carefully the extracts we give from the Globe and the Albany Argus, and then ask himself if we have nut cause fur great gratitude and joy, when we contemplate the awful condition into which our country must have been ? dunged, if the administration had been continued n power, which could retain such organs, and en dorse auch INSTRUCTION ARY DOCTRINES. The Globe says : "What are to be the consequences of an dec tion contaminated, in many of the States, by in. famous frauds, which can and will be proved? Will the people submit to such an election? Suppose it should be proved that enogh of the electoral votes were controlled Dy traua to delea the election? Will the People submit? will Ihey assemble in their respective ' States and DECLARE THE ELECTION FRAUDU LENT AND VOID?" Here, the official organ of the President, after having virtually admitted that Gen. Harrison will bo elected, asks his party "if thoy will submit to uch an election," "or will they assemble in the dif- Jerent Stales, and declare ruch on election void?" Is not this an onen and daring invocation to rebell- ionl The Albeuy Argus, the organ of Mr. Van iiuren in JNew York, seconds the treasonable sug gestions of the Globe. It says: "ORDER, PEACE, TRANQUILITY, are BANISHED, and those who cheerfully submit to the will of a MAJORITY, constitutionally ex pressed, will RISE, in their WRATH, if the spirit of tho Revolution is not extinct, to resist, to overcome nod to prostrate, the factious and fraudulent rule of a conceded MAJORITY The Locofoco papers throughout the country for me last montn, nave been tilled witn charges or an sorts of frauds upon the Wine party. The leaders of the party have discovered that Van Buren's de feat is inevitable; and they have resorted to slander forgery subornation of perjury, and every infa. nious scheme that could be invented, to induce their followers tu believe that Gen. Harrison's election would be the cause of corruption and fraud. In New York city, men holding some of the most iuv portant offices in the gift of the President, have of fered a most tempting bribi, nay, have even offered to "divide their last crust" with a member of the Whir party, if he would oeriure himself, and testi fy, under oath, that some of the prominent men of his own party were guilty of bribery and fraud They have instituted extra judicial unauthorised courts, and dragged before them numerous individ uals, hoping to elicit or extort from them some Kina ot answers that wouiu give color to the inla inous chorees, The Mayor and Recorder of the citv entered t he dwelling of a Whig, who had token an active part in electioneering, at tlie hour ot midnight, and with a recmessness and disregard ot all law, character istic of highway robbers, seized upon and carried off the whole of his private papers, with the vain hope of finding something to sustain their nefari ous slanders. Ia the midst of these base attempts at misleading and poisoning the public mind these attempts at inducing the whole of their party to believe thntthe Whigs are the most corrupt and vile men on the face of tho earth, and that Gen. Harrison will be elected by fraud, bribery and corurption, the official organs of the administration enme out in the lan guage we have quoted, and call upon their party to assemble and declare the election void, and not to be regarded. Felluw-Citizens, pause and ponder this malter. Suppose for a moment, if such a sup position be possible, that the whole of the charges made by tho Locofoco papers are true, what then. Suppose Gen. Harrison to be elected by fraud, what course would every citizen recommend, who de sires to preserve our republican form of governments Most unquestionably it would be to submit the whole matter to the legal investigation of the proper tri bunal for deciding such questions. This course does not suit the leeches who have fastened them selves upon the treasury and power of the govern ment. They know that the whole of tho infamous charges they have made are without a shadow of a foundation, and that with all their perjury and forgery, th is would soon appear before an inlelligen t tribunal, under a coo) and candid examination. It is for this reason that they attempt to deceive, mis lead and inflame their partizans. They do not wish the matter to be submitted to a cool and deliberate investigation. They know thev would be overwhelmed with infamy and disgrace, and they seem to entertain the vain hope that their party are 6ase and corrupt enough to sustain the present rulers in their places by open force: in tlii ooiisn supposition, mey uo injustice to the great majority of their party: but no man can tell what might have been the state of feelings at the end of tour years trom tins time, it our present rulers had been permitted to continue the exercise of their cor rupting influences. Look at the suggestions of the Globe and Argus, in their naked deformity, stripped or an vcrmage; and wnat are they; nothing les. than a proposition to subvert the who's of our cherish ed institutionsto trample the elective franchise in the dust, and by a resort to mob violence and civi war, to retain V an Buren in office, UNDER THE NAM C OF PRESIDENT, WITH ALL THE POWERS OF A DESPOT.

TO OBTAIN THEIR ILLEGAL VOTES ! !

Why should the editors of papers in Eng land surpass the editors of American papers? Because we are often in want of a subject, but Ihey seo a tuhjeel in every person they meet. There's a man out east who ia to small that he frequently gels lost, and is obliged to go a bout with a candle and ring a bell, to find out what's become of himself. The Batcj Rouge, La , Gazette states that on the la inst., tho Ui 'v of a white man u fonn flut ing in the river, about ten miles below that place. It appeared to have been in the wa'er about two days, and on one side was perforated with buck shot, from the hip to the bead; It is supposed to be ihe body of some unfortunate traveller, waylaid and murdered by robbers. Mi snout! Lrgiclatiire. fcVWe find the following remarks prepared to our hand in the St. Louis New Era, of the 27th ult. "The Murder is out." We have got the treason able letters. Col. Benton brought thorn from Jet- fcrsun In his pocket, slipped them into the Argus office on Tuesday, and the same afternoon cut and run for Washington not daring to stop to see the explosion of indignation which was to follow their publication the next day. It was well for the Col. that ha struck in an unusual number of capitals, so as to indicate the parts which were deemed ob jectionable.and excited so much of the bile of Hans Smith and Speaker Price; othorwise, we are sure plain, common folks, such as compose the pope lation of Missouri, never would have been able to see any thing villainous in the letters of the Lon don Bankers. No party movement of modern times can equal the folly of this petty attempt to distort the correspondence of a Banking house in London into a conspiracy to bring about the elec tion of Gen. Harrison. Col. Benton and all en gaged in it ought to be ashamed of themselves The whole matter is supremely ridiculous, and we do not wonder that the better informed men of the parly here, should express their disapprobation of the course which has been taken about this corrcs pondence. It is not in their nature to stand every thing especially when they know that such follies as these have placed them in a hopeless minority! It is not yet satisfactorily settled how these let ters found their way to Jefferson City, and their contents to the knowledge of the public. That is however, an unimportant matter. No objection could have been made to their publication in the usual way, on a call from the Legislature, and in connexion with other portions of the correspond' ence. They are published, however, and it is with the letters that we have to do. We venture to say, that no case is on record where so grave a charge has been made upon so slender a foundation. What are the facts ! The State of Missouri, to pay up its stock in tho Bank the expenses of the Mormon ecu Osage Wars, its State House, and other liabilities, was obliged to resort to the borrowing of money. The Lcgisla ture authorized the issue of State Bonds. They were sent to the Atlantic cities, and there hawked about from one Broker's shop to another, without being touched by any' one, to any extent. Capitalists were afraid of them. They did not doubt the anil ityofthe State ; but they did question whether her fuith would be kept with them, so long as it was under the control of Col. Benton, who, they knew laughed at the inviolably of contracts, had derided Slate credit, and advocated every measure which had a tendency to destroy it. Effort after effort was made agent after agent was despatched to the East, but no body would touch our Slate Bonds, It was then determined to send an agent to Europe to see whether Capitalists there were willing to trust to our good faith. It ivas a six months job cost some eight thousand dollars, and ended in get ting nothing. The Capitslists of London and Pari as it happened, had their pick of American Stocks all of which were much depressed, and they did not care about dealing in a new security, the character of which was unknown to them, and about which if they did make inquiries, they could have learned nothing very favorable. Mr. Smith selected the house of F. Huth &. Co., as the Agents of the Bank, and left the Bonds with them. It was hoped, that some change in the money market of Europe would occur in a few months, end early in the spring of this year sales were expected by th Bank. In the interim, systematic attacks were made npon the credit of all the States, first by Mr, Van Buren in his message, and then by Benton Grundy, and the whole tribe of Loco Foco orators and presses. The knowledge of these extraordi nary attempts to disparage State securities, made part of the creed of Mr. Van Buren's party, speed ily crossed the water, and, as they were mainly owned in Europe, excited more interest and were better understood there than at home. They at once saw, that if tne Stales of this Union were to prove faithless in their contracts, they must lose not only the interest hut the principal of the stock which they held; and it is not surprising that they were very chary about making new engagements and looked with much solicitude to the course of events hero. In Mr. Van Buren's administration they had no confidence, for he had already been in struinental in deteriorating the value of the secu rities which they owned. They knew that a fierce struggle was going on between the Whigs and the Van Buren party. They knew, also, that it was a canon of the Whig party, that the public faith should be preserved inviolate, both State and Na tional. As a matter of course, they perceived the advantage which the defeat of Mr. Van Buren would bring to them; and, as prudent business men every where would do, they determined to await the issue of the election. Their money was their own, and they had the right to invest it in American securities, or not, as they pleased. This was the general feeling; and Messrs. F. Huth &. Co. in answer to the pressing solicitations of tlm Bank for money, and wishing, as its agents, to sat isfy them of the inability of effecting sales at that time, frankly stated the reasons which controlled Europeau Capitalists in declining to purchase State securities. How they will be surprised to learn, that their frank, business letters, have been tortured into an attempt to bribe the democratic people of Missouri, tarougu their demor.ratic Bank, to voto for Gen. Harrison as President; and that a distin- guished Senator has gone off to Washington, full charged with these letters, as incoutestible proofs or a concerted design, on the part of European Capitalists, to iuterfere in tho election, and make General Horrison President of the United States! How much they will be surprised to hear, that the Lcgilalure of Missouri has made their letters the basis for the withdrawal of the bonds from their band, and from Europe altogether! How much they will be shocked at being told, that we will not borrow your money at 0 per cent, per ann.. for 25 or UO years, although we are paying ten per cent, for it in New York, returnable in less than a year, and have pledged two dollars for one in order to obtain it. After a knowledge of all the facts to catch Trice, Hans Smith, and Col. Benton, yoke them together, and send them to London, accompa nied by a veritable account of all their savings and oings in this connexion, and our word for it the .egislature will realise more monev bv tk. .u,. than they can borrow upon the State Bonds for ihl ucai leu cars i Per Great Western. London, June 3, 1840. John Smith, Esq., Pies't of the Bank of the State of Missouri, St. Louis: Sir: We refer to our last of May 15, and have now the pleasure of acknowledging tne receipt oi your esteemed letter of. 17th Apiil. The box with the coupons of the lionds in our possession has also reached us within these few days; the contents have not yet been examined, but we have no doubt ol these being found correct. we assure vou that we are not unmind ful of your anxious wish either to realize your bonds at a satisfactory price, or to receive an advance upon them, but we re- gret to say this is still out of our power; mere are hardly any transactions in Amen can securities, even m the most current stocks, and as to the introduction ol any new stock in the market, we should noi consider it either advisable or even credita. ble, nor can we as yet foretell the period when a material improvement may he ex pected. We should consequcntlv in ina- kincan advance, lock up our cnpitul for an indefinite period, and for this, we confess, the value ol money is too great at present. THE ATTENTION OF UUIt CAPITAL ISTS AND OTHERS ENGAGED IN AMERICAN AFFAIRS IS NOW TURN ED TO YOUR INTERNAL POLITICS AND IF THE PROSPECTS FOR YOUR NJJXT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION HELD OUT liY THE LAST AC COUNTS SHOULD BE REALIZED, THIS CIRCUMSTANCE WILL CON TRIBUTE MORE THAN ANY OTHER TO RESTORE GENERAL CONrl DENCE. The payments of the dividends on Pennsylvania stock has produced a good elfect, but even now that stock (which a few years ago was preferred to all others and sold as high as 120,0 0) can be pur chased at trom 7b to 78 0-0, which will show you what could be expected for Missouri Bonds. Indiana dollar stock has been sold at 66 0-0, Illinois 6 per cent, stock at 74 0-0, but even at these rates no large sales could be ellected. We remain respectfully, sir, Your ob't serv't, FRED. HUTH & CO. Per Great Western. London, Sept. 11, 1840. John Smith, Esq., President of the Bank of the State of Missouri, St. Louis Dear Sir: We have duly received your favors ol July 9 Irom St. Louis, and July 29 lrom JNew lorn, and must regret we still continue unable to meet your wishes as regards a sale of your Bonds, or a loan on the security of them. The war with which we are threatened by France again diverts the attention of our capitalists from permanent investments, and all American securities appear quite foreign. Indiana per cent, dollar stock was offered to us at 674 0-0, and Missouri, being less known, could not even be sold in the same propor tion. IF, HOWEVER, YOUR ELEC TIONS FOR THE PRESIDENTSHIP SHOULD HAVE THE RESULT NOW ANTICIPATED, IT IS VERY PROB ABLE THAT AN IMPULSE WILL BE GIVEN TO ALL STATE STOCKS, AIMD THIS MOMENT MAY THEN ARRIVE WHEN YOUR BONDS CAN BE INTRODUCED UNDER FAVORA fir ti TTn-nir-in.i . .... nun AUoniyiiO, though not at the limit you have fixed, whilst Illinois 6 per cent. sterling bonds can be purchased so much ower: the price asked at present lor this latter stock is 87 0-0, being nearly 10 0 0 under your limit. AFTER YOU HAVE WAITED SO LONG, WE THINK IT WOULD BE A'PITY TO RECALL THE BONDS WITHOUT SEEING WHAT EFFECT A CHANGE IN YOUR EX ECUTIVE WILLPRODUCEJN WHICH POINT WE MAY EXPECT TO FORM A'FAIR JUDGMENT ABOTT THE BE GINNING OF NEXT YEAR. If, how ever, you wish the bonds, or a portion ol mem, to ue returned, please eive us vou instructions and they will be punctually fol loweu. i j We remain respectfully, dear sir, Your ob't serv'ts, FREDERICK HUTH & CO.

That it is unconstitutional, degrading to the character ot the stales, tending to consolidation and involving corrupt practi ces on the part of foreigners for Congress to engage in any schemes to sustain Slate credit in Europe. 9. That a copy of these resolutions and of the two letters to which they refer be furnished to the Missouri delegation in Con gress, nnd thnt the same be spread on the journals ot this House. Mr. Doniphan said he wished to have time to reflect on the resolutions. He might support some of the resolutions; oth ers he was opposed to. He moved, there fore, to lay them on the table and have them printed. 6000 copies were ordered to be printed. As soon us this matter was disposed of, Gen. Hans Smith o lie red the following res olution: Resolved by the House of Representa tives, That the Committee of Criminal Ju risprudence be instructed to report a bill to prevent Irauds at elections, with the follow ing modifications: 1. To fine any person who votes at ti ny election in the State of Missouri who has not been one year in the State, and three months in the county or district. S. To fine any minor who votes at any election, and if the fine be not paid, it is to remain as a judgement against said minor until he be 21 years of age, and that it shall be the duty of the clerk then to issue an ex ecution against said voter, and the sheriff shall collect the same, if the voter reside in the county, 3. To punish by fine or imprisonment, or by both tine and imprisonment, any per son who Knowingly gives a printed or writ ten ticket to nn elector who cannot read, contrary to his known politics. 4. 10 punish with fine any person or persons who cause to uo primed ana circu lated any false Or fraudulent tickets, whicl from their face appear designed as a fraud on voters. 5. To punish with imprisonment in the l'enitentiary any person or persons whot ther give or receive a bribe, either directly or indirectly, in voting at any election in the biate ot Missouri. 6. To punish by imprisonment in the Penitentiary any person or persons engaged in, or endeavoring to bring into the State ol Missouri, voters Irom other States, with the design of controlling the elections of the State of Missouri against the will of the ma jority ot the voters, and in violation of the provisioos ofthe Constitution of our State Mr. Smith said that he proposed these changes in the existing laws, because he wanted to guard against frauds in elections as far as it was possible for the Legislature to do so. On this question he hoped thai party feeling would be disregarded he should certainly lay it aside himself. In other countries overt acts, to revolutionize tne government were punisnea witn death In our country similar acts of fraud and vi olence, to subvert the will of the majority should be severely punished. The Drac- tice has crept in upon us of transferring voters irom estate to otate to control elee tions where they have no right to vote. This was making the minority govern, not the majority. He was one of those who believed that the people are capable of self- government he thought they had the in telligence, the virtue and the patriotism to hold the sovereign power in their own hands, and wield it wisely and safely. H deemed it their power to be in danger ."uiuuime proper time ne snouid be pre pared to show, trom the numerous instan ces in which elections have been lately controlled by fraud, the absolute necessity ol further laws to maintain the purity ofthe elective franchise and the sovereignty ol tne people. The resolution was adopted. The following resolution, offered by Mr iiunt oi tauaway, was likewise adopted Resolved, by the House ofRepresenta tives, that the President of the Bank of Missouri furnish to this House a list of the names of the directors of the Bank of the Slate of Missouri, to correspond with the numbers,!, v, 3, etc., contained in there port of the examining committee, if it be in the power of the President to do so. If the President cannot furnish such names, that he be instructed to lay before the House, so soon as practicable, the names and liabilities oi the Directors of the Bank of Missouri. Mr. II. Smith explained that the Pics dent was not able to give the information: when he was directed by the House to write to the Cashier and obtain the infor mation required. Ihe Law of Newspapers.

Ib my fellow-citizens from New-Orleans tn Down ingtille, and from Salt Water to the Laki Wa ters, tip and down the country and cross-wise. Fellow-Citizens : Ever since the world begun all the hunts and chases tdll'd on in all parts of creation haint beon only a mere flea hunt to the rale fox chase that has just been completed in these United Slates, by the grace of God frae and inde pendent at last. It has been known to every body that for the last ten years it has been impossible to hatch eg;, or raise poultry, or to trust any thing at large of that natur night artcr night and day arter day nest arter nest and chicken artor chicken, was destroyed by the foxes, and they got so bold and brazen at last they would come into the poultry-yard in open day, or any where else, and kept the bull feather'd tribe a kackling pretty much all the while. M first the folks got traps and dogs ; but it got so at last, that the foxes got so numerous, it was jlst as much as a dog's life was worth to attack 'em -and folks begin to despair especially as it was found out that all the younger foxes got their direc tions from one rale sly fox, who as yet never had been tracked, or trap'd, or driven to his hole; he was every where, in every State, almost at the same time. And wherever he was reported to be, there it was found all the other foxes was most knowing and most impudent. So it was concluded that it was no use to try and trap the common run of foxes, but, it possible, make a general rally in all the States, and give chase to this old fox especially and not give up till he was run to his hole, and then dig him out for it wis thought if he was only caught, all the rest would be pretty scarce. Well, this matter being agreed upon, the first thing next to be done was to select a good long winded leader of the chase one who would not give out, and whose horn could be heard furthest. And so we all agreed upon Old Tip, and we got hi in pretty well mounted, and he sounded his horn, and its echoes went up and down rivers, and across vulleys, and over mountains, till folks all about creation got well acquainted with the sound, and, on a given day, they assembled at all their sta tions, and put in practice theftio general rules of mo cnae, capering a nine round, ana navir.g a few sham chases, iist to git nimble, and then on a signal from Old Tip's horn they all started, and sivh a chase, as I said afore, as then began, the hull created world has never before seen for it was an everlasting wide and lung country to chase over, ana no one knowing yet where the fox would nrsi oreaK kiver, an bands at first went to work beating the bush. The first track was struck in Louisiana, and about 3,000 give chase there, and run him out of that State and he streaked away North as hard as he could clip it, and knowing all tne secret by-ways, escaped till he reached the Mate ol Maine. Ihe Maine Loys were wideawake, ana as soon as tney struck his track there, they raised an almighty shout and headed him off. He then sheared off to New Hampshire, where they are pritty much all fox and there for a spell took breath. But hearing the coining shout he struck for Vermont in hopes the "Green Mountings" would furnish a kiver, but they were all awake there, and about 8000 folks jinedin the chase, and ne remained no longer in Vermont than he could get out on't. "Well," thinks he, "this is pritty me worn, ana i m on ooum agin, tor they must be irienaiy to me mere, seeing as how I tell d all the foxes tube civil to the Southern Chickens," and so lie slipt along to Georgia. The Georgia folks, however, not liking the natur of the breed, had already called their fox hunters together, and on the first show of a track they all opened and about o.uuo give cnase tnere in a most noble stile, and he turned tail and run towards the middle States. In passing through the old North State of Carolina, he finds things too wide awake there to stop a minit and jist so it continued all the way through Aluryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania though he Kr.tU 1 L- I . 1 :I f n . wmeruu ma iiumurs plaguy in rennsyivania, lor they dun t underainnd fox hunttnsr much in that Stute except in alew counties especially in Bucks county, and that is the reason why in that county they always have good poultry and plenty on't. So he continued North. In Connecticut and Rhode Island they gave him an amazin? close run and no time to stop or double, and eenmost caught him. As for Massachusetts, he knew pritty well he stood no chance there, and so you see but one strait chaso across and taking a bite in Now Hamp shire, he tried for New York and run considerable well and comfortably along the Hudson but such a howl as met him in the west was a shiverer for him and he sheered off for Ohio, but that was out of the frying pan into the hot ashes and looking around him and seeing all ready in the Slates-some 10,000, some 15,000, some more, some less scouring the country and prepared to track thinks he "its nouse 'to the victor belongs the spiles' was the doc trine of my party and I may as well go for it to tho last," and he made a dead 'track to the Log Cabin at the North Bend with about 30,000 Buckeves n kin. J CM., 'P " . . 1 1 . - i-.ci uuu mm uiu Aip- lung ena on em. j. was standing near the door and I seed him coming, and now thinks I here goes for Log Cabin mercy and hospitality and I opened the door and in he streak'd, and just then carne up Old Tip all of a lather. "He is safe," says I, "Gineral we have got him snug at last." "Well," says the Gineral to his friends, "fellow citizens the chase is up; the old fox is in my pos ession, and I hope that you will be satisfied that tha Major and I will take good care of hirn, and give a good account of him. He is not in condi tion just now to oe held up by the tail he has had a hard run and is considerably siled: but he'll dn no more harm, let all go home and let their poul try out as in good times. You will not be trou- ui u Dy ioxes lor a good spell to come, and if vou are, its your own fault, not mine." And with that all join'd in three hearty cheers for "Tippecanoe and Tyler too" and thus ended one of the greatest fox chases ever heard tell'd on afore, and I have only told a very small part on't. Yours, fullow-citizens, J. DOWNING, Major, &C. &.c. The position we have already assumed, that Gen. Harrison will bo the President of the whole country, and not of a party, of itself es tablishes a marked contrast between the new Administration and that which it will upr.o,i and carried out to its legitimate consequences, includes, necessarily, a return, a real and bona fide rolurn, to the true standard of appointments to office.

' We are the mora emphade on ttiia po1 from the brazen and notorious Impudence, with which the Custom House officers of this city have interfered, both in this State and in other Slates, in the recent Election. We have seen them at the polls buying up voters.-slangwhanging, betting, bullying and challenging volers.-.and we have felt that such insolent interference on the part of federal office ought to be severely rebuked. On the contrary, however, when men in office have confined themselves to the simplo exerciser of their rights as electors, without obtruding themselves offensively upon their neighbors, or seeking to interfere with them and are diligent, competent, and faithful in the execution of their public trusts, we hope, we presume, they will not be disturbed, whatever their political prefer ences. The new Administration will succeed to power under great disadvantages. The Treasury is not only empty, but largely in debt. We presume, indeed, that a debt of at least ten millions is now hanging over the coun. try; and if as we have reason to suppose, the buildings and repairs of fortifications, barracks, &c. on the sea board, are carried on credit, for engagements payable next April, the debt will be larger. The revenue for the current year will full short of the estimates, and that of the year to come, nnd available within the year, will be much below the expenditures which the new Ad ministration will find entailed upon the country. Its first step, therefore, must be to create re sourcesalways a difficult and delicate under, taking and after a period of such general stag, nation and interruption of business as we have suffered under, much more difficult. But we have faith in the wisdom of Gen. Harrison, both in the selection of his Cabinet and of the measures of public policy he will suggest; and above all we have faith in the pa triotism of the people, that they will accomplish the work they nave so well begun, by lending their hearty and zealous co-operation in whatever just and proper measures may be proposed by the Government of their choice.
