Relcaoe of Prisoners to Tote*
The City i? already familiar with the fact that
at the last Spring Election a great number of pris?
oners were released by Loco-Foco Magis?
trates from Blackwell's Inland for the express
purpose of voting Ote Loco-Foco ticket. We
-jik attention to the following extracts from the af?
fidavits of men examined before Justice TaTLoR
who, for his active agency in exposing these out?
rageous frauds, was soon after ejected from the
office the dutie. of which he had long discharged
with eminent ability and integrity. The following
i? from the testimony of John Bc.ert, Deputy
Keeper of Blackwell's Island :

Q. Did yon go to the Eighth Ward that night with any
persons who had then lately been prisoners on Blackwell's
island and hat? been tlischatged t
proceeded alter conversation with counsel.] I had business
on tbe Island. When I got iher. I found these men ; tbey
?were anxious to get to the City, and I gare them privilege to
come dovm with me,anddrove down with them to the Eighth
Ward, where It Ive. It was after 11 o'clock at night. These
persins were Hart, John William?, Thomas Neary, Richard
Thornton and Jonathan Trower?thai is all 1 think of just
now. There were others whose names I cannot thinlc of.
There were a number of them; their limes had expired a
long time before, and some had received discharges. Then
were 16 ta all that came l?ram that night.
John BaYLEY testifies before Mayor MORRIS
as follows concerning one of these released con?
victs named Br*ntley:
"I ?av.? Bentley the day after the late Spring
Election at the corner of Barrow and Hudson
streets, Mr. Shoat'ft grocery. He then said htr
had been _et out of the Penitentiary at
Blackwell's Island the day before the
Election, ?is?, had two or three shillings given
to him by the Sentinel and a lettrr of introduc?
tion to one Mr. Davis of the Eighth Ward; (hat
he got lodgings at Davis1 s, and that he voted
in the Eighth Ward the next morning. He
does not say where he was residing then ; be did
not mention the sentinel's name; be was then a
little touched with liquor; last I knew of him ho
was at Ackerman's ; he then left, as he tolri mo,
and went to live near the Sixth Avenue. He said
he walked down from the Island.''
The following, sworn to by Henry West, shows
what preparations had been made for securing the
votes of these convicts, by procuring their hoard
in those Wards where they were wanted:
"? Deponent further says that about, one week
before tk-e Charter Election which was held in said
City on Tuesday the 12th dny of April inst., he
was standing with Win. B. Kinney in Spring-st.,
near Clinton Market, and said Kinney then and
there asked deponent if he would o-o to the Porter
House of Joseph Diackery, No. 479 Washington
street and hoard at said house until Wednesday
the- loth inst., the day after the Election, and
?aid Kinney then said that twelve or fourteen
men were going t_ board at the house of said
Diackery until the day after said Election,
and that said men were going to stay at said
house that they might rote at the Eighth District
Poll of the Eighth Ward at said Election ; and
said Kinney then said that John Orser, St-ephon
Harris, and the other members of the. Democrati.*
Committee of the Eighth Ward were to pay said
Diackery for boarding said men who were to gc
to said house for the express purpose of being
able to vvte at said Election."
Lawrence ?Austin testifies a? follows :
" Deponent further says that on Saturday the
?tb of April inst. he saw at the house of Joseph
Diackery, No. 479 Washington-street, five) men
whom Mr. B. Kinney said he had brought /
said house that they might rote at the Eighth
District of the Eighth Ward at the Charter
Election on the 12th inst., and some of said tuen
said the same. Deponent further says that on the
lOih and 11th inst. four other men came to DiacL
ery's house, who said Kinney told this deponent
were going to stop there to vote at said Election.
Deponont further ?ays, the Ave men who first came
to Diackery's were allowed as much spirituoii
liquors as they would drink, without paying for it ;
but, as they became intoxicatetl, said Kinney and
said Diackery agreed that said nine men should
have but three glasses of liquor per day.
" Deponent further says that on Tuesday tbe
12th inst., in the morning, said Kinney went out
of said house with six of said men?going with
two of them at a time?and said Kinn??y told this
deponent that said men voted at said Poll * and
deponent says that he wont with the ihree remain?
ing men to said Foil and saw tiro of thern -rate at
said Poll: that said two men were challenged
andsicorn; but the other man, who said bis name
was John Bentley, declined voting at first, but
finally voted at said Poll and was challenged and
sworn. Said Bentley told this deponent that lit?
had been committed to Blackwell's Island for six
months, and was sent from said Island with a
letter to John Davis of lfj8?$ Spring-street, on
the llth inst., and that said Davis gave him di?
rections to go to Piackcry's to board."
These extraordinary proceedings were made:ht*
subject of investigation by the Grand Jury of the
County, and they presented charges against the
Magistrates implicated, which were referred to
M. C. Patterson. He made a close inquiry into
tbe facts, and mad?* a report of which the follow?
ing is an extract:
'?The undersigned lias, however, labored under
considerable embarrassment in the performance of
his duty, inasmuch as he had no authority to :n>
minister an oath, or summon any person* as wit?
nesses before him. In lite course of his investi?
gation, many startling facts intimately connected
with the freedom and puritv of elections, were
elicited, implicating GKORGE W. MATSELL,
Special Justices aforesaid?the said Justices ap?
pear t_ have discharged from the Penitentiary on
Blackwell's Island, a veiy large number of per?
sons, before iheir respective term* of imprison
ment had expired; and this apparently from time
to time t?>r abou*. three- weeks previous "to the Char?

In lB'-iT, when the genuine Loco-Foco?, wer?
somewhat at loggerheads with the old Sachems ii
Iammany, the Evening I'ost proposed a separa
?on between tho two faction*. On lh?3 propos*!
tien, Hon. Daniel S. Dickinson, the presen
Regency candidate for Lieutenant Governor, mad?
the following humorous commentary. We batet.
publish it, for fear it may induce some Whigs t<
vote for this comical fellow, who likes real Loc?>
Focoi_m just about as well as any of us. How
ever, here goes for the Lieut. Governor expectani
depicting those who are about to vote for him :
"The Evening Post recommends a separation ol
the * Equal Rights1 from the Republican party?
that each may pursue its own course and ' agree,
to differ.' It is a timely and judicious sugges?
tion, an event we hnve long desired to see; an
event had it htvppened three years since, we should
not have seen the proud Democracy of our Com?
mercial Emporium humbled undor the dominion of
modern Whiggery. But there has been an Achan
in the camp, and we need not expect to prosper
there, until he is cast out. We repeat, we rejoice
in the prospect, and when it is fairly accomplish?
ed, in the language of the Tost, we will not only
proclaim a ' good riddance, hut in the sincerit;,
?>t ?>ur henrt?? we will carry out the lignre by add?
ing ' to had rubbish.' Since the arrival of that
modern-of Babylon, Fanny Wright, upon our
shorea, &ir party, more especially in the City of
N_ V. has been infested with Patent Democrats,
impotent in numbers, but noisy and consequential
in pretensions. Their Democracy ia Agranianiaro,
and their liberty lawlessness. With all their holy
horror of monopolies, they have uniformly warmly
supported the most ultra Bank Whigs in the na?
tion, whenever there was a prospect of defeat?
ing the Democratic Cnntlidates by so doing. By
attempting to temporize and conciliate, wo have
given them a consequence to which their positive
insignificance never entitled them, and the sooner
they turn to their own empty resources ihe belter.
We haves regarded them from the beginning as an
incubus upon the party, and politically redemption
less. ?*'?** Nothing is tolerable with thorn
unies* it comes up to their standard, which isa vis?
ionary and senseless vagary, made u[> of the odds
and ?Mids of faction, the chief ingredient of which
h. conceit and stupidity?a phantom of a distem?
pered brain, without form and void, and upon
which no two of them can agree. Let them wheel
off. The order of the procession will probably be
?As follows :
1. (Reverend Clergy) JOE SMITH,
4. TJ'JLEX. A//AG,
We will leave it to the Post to fill up the list of
the precenflion and 'arrange the moitrriers' who,
we pri?dict, will be 'few and far between.."
A a the decree of separation has gun?: forth from
the I'ost, ire hope, it will be like the laws of the
Medes and Persians?let it alter net?and try
would neld our wish, that tJieir return might be
prohibited by a gulf as impassable as that lehirh,
separated the rich man and Lazarus.'"

The Erie I-ailron.,.. Arc.
The Albany Argus, in a flaggy sort of dialogue,
intended to ??how that the State Works of New
York will never pay their cost, give* us the fol?
lowing :
Dem?1 suppose yon count upon the Erie Railroad ?
Whig.?No, NOT for revenue. You know well enough
we use that for electioneering purposes.
Such, friends of the Erie Railroad ! is the way
your great work is treated by the L?*?co-Foco State
organ. While the Massachusetts Western Rail?
road in paying over $500,000 per annum, the Al?
bany Argus coolly asserts that ihe Erie Railroad
would produce no Revenue at all, and is only used
" for electioneering purposes.1' If that Road
does not pay $1,000,000 the first year it 3hall be
opened throughout, and net $1,000,000 within five
years, then ail analogeus experience is false and
But ?ays ' Dem ' in this i-ame article :
" There is one other question I wish to ask. Is noi the
loll paid on the Erie Cnnal a tax , antl much more onerous
upon the prior and working classes than a direct tax upon
properiyi I have heard much sait! about tolls, as il they
fell into the Stale Treasury ?ike manna to the I?raelites, but
it always npp'-ared to nit? that they were produceil by
labor, and paid by acias.? least able to bear them, and that
i he ti ue policy for us hard-handed men who labor, would
o? to have ihe State get out of debt, atul have the tolls on
dour, pork, beef,and salt reduced."
Let us test ihe soundness of this ' tax ' proposi?
tion. Jonathan Holdfast lives in Allegany County,
nnrl even, odd year comes down to see his father in
Old Connecticut. Before there were any Rail?
roads it took him five days to reach New-York by
stage, at a cost of $.0. Bui ihe Erie Railroad is
built; and now he runs down in twenty-four hour
direct, or two da?,s' sunshine if he chooses to take
it easy?no racking of bones nor dislocating of
shoulders?no prying out the stage from quagmires
?no mud. no dust, no disappointments ; and the
cost is $8 to $10 at most. '** Why, Holdfast,"
??ays ex-Comptroller Flagg, meeting him in New
York, " do n't you see that the infernal Whig pol?
icy has taxed you eight dollars for your passage? "
"Why, no." says Jonathan, feeling the balance of
his usual $*.'() in his pocket., "it don't exactly
strike me in that light."?Just so of the consumers
of *' flour, pork, beef and salt." The true way to
secure a re?luciion of the cost of transportation is
by enlarging the Canal so that a two-horse boat
can ca'rrv 70 tons where she now carries 25. Then
u boat can pay more toll per ton than now, yet
carry- at half the present price
rVew-Yor? and Erie Railroad.
We took a trip to Orange County on Monday
evening, to look in at the Whig Convention at Go?
shen next day, leaving our City at 3 P. M. ami ar?
riving ut Goshen (6G miles?22 by Steamboat, 44
by Railroad) in a little over fi hours. The num?
ber of passengers up imm have exceeded 100?
nine-tenths of them for Goshen and points this
side oi it. From this fact an approximation may
be made to the probable number of passengeis
when this greut work ?.?mil have been completed.
[f 06 miles of it give '.00 passengers per dav, ISO
could not certainly give less than 1,000, taking
into account those who come from Lake Erie and
beyond. We cannot doubt, considering the num?
ber now carried on the Massachusetts Western
antl other new Railroads ihat the New-York and
Erie, starling a passage train every twelve hours
from N. York and another from Lake Erie, would
rectdveal least $0.000 per day or $2,000.000 per
year from passengers alone, one-half of which
would defray all current expenses and leave
$1,000,000 per annum for dividends on the stock.
From Freight a large but probably not eq*_al
amount woultl be realized?say half as much, or
$1.000,000 per annum. This would give a divi
dend of over 1\) per cent, on the stock, after a
liberal allowance for repairs antl renewals, taking
the highest estimate of the cost of the work.
At this moment nearly oii?*-half of the entire
work has been constructed, jet only one-eighth
part of it has been brought into operation. That
pait ot it. laboring under every disadvantage, and
at a time of general depression, is doing better
than its warmest friends anticipated. There is no
doubt that the whole wiii do a? well as this part.
Then why shall it not be constructed ? Why
should the timber be left to rot, the grade to waste
away, and the whole work to sink annuallv to ruin ?
Why should we lose Halt" a Million a year in in?
terest on the portion already done? Why Half a
Million a year more in the dilapidation of thi??
work ? What is the reason for this ? Is New
York bankrupt or insane ? Have we not abun?
dance of Labor anxiously seeking employment at
rates low enough for any man of conscience???
Have we not storehouses of Grain, Wheat. Goods,
every thing which this Labor requires in payment
for its exertion, which can find no market abroad,
or anv otheiwise than by settingoui Public Works
as well as Factories in motion? Then why do we
now stand idle and. despondent,
*? Leltintr ? 1 dare not' w_it upon ? I would **"
Surely, if there be judgement, foresight, or even
the narrowest sense of self-interest in the Coun?
try, the Internal Improvement policy and parts
will l?e sustained, and our Pubiic Work? pushed
vigorously to completion.
To the Whigs of the Slate of Neu- York :
The result, disastrous as unexpected, of the r
cent Election in Ohio, impels us at this time ta a
dress you. In trhat State and New-Jersey alon
of all those recently holding Elections, did 01
brethren deem it expedient ?o make a determin?
effort this Fall. New-Jerset has done all th
could be wished, but Ohio has faltered. By a ge
erous effort to save their State from a most iniqui
ous and shameful Apportionment, and the l ni?
from its consequences in a gross misrepresent
lion in the House, such as has so long been exhi
ited in the Senate, the Whigs have subjected then
?elves, however unjustly, to the charge of anarch
and lhat has sufficed for their temporary pro*tr
tion. By a majority of barely 3;000 in 220,00
votes?or less than one in seventy?they are ove
borne. The manner of this defeat is as evidei
as the cause. While there has been an iuerease i
votes in the strong Loco-Foco Counties, the Whi
strong-holds have been but. partially drawn oui
and enough Whig votes remain tin pol led in fi'>
Counties to have changed entirely the result of tl
contest. Shall the warning be lost upon our F.Rii
Chat-t-c-?ue. Washington and Old GenesF.e 1
We would not underrate the magnitude of th
disaster. Doubtless in 1844, when the name i
HENRY CLAY is directly before the People. tF
Whig voters whose apathy has caused this mischte
will come out, and Ohio be fourni on the side of hi
principles and her interests. No man c&ncorop?
the vote of the several Counties and not s,>_ tbi
the State would at this lime have given a decido
majority for the Whig candidate for P resident.
But the deplorable consequences of this reverse ai
more imminent and at the same time more endi
ring than those of a wrong vote in 1S-U. The
extend through the whole of the ensuing ten year
By this result the Loco-Focos are empowered l
consummate their villainous plan of Apportioi
ment, which piles up all the decidedly Whig Com
ties in six Districts, ami distributes the Lmco-Fi
co strong-holds so as to cover and bind down a
the debateable ground, giving to that party fiftee
on the present vote, and fourteen (or two-thin
of the entire delegation) in defiance of a popuh
Whig majority of thousands. Throughout the ei
suing ten years, then, we must, surely expect l
encounter, no matter what may be the verdict (
her People, the two Senators and two-thirds <
the Representatives of Ohio arrayed in deadly an
unceasing hostility to the Restoration of a U.?<
form National Currknct, to the 1'rotectio
of our Home Labor, to the Land Distribute:
and to all the great measures essential to a rebuilt
ing of our National Prosperity.
Here is the point o( danger on which we ha-,
been impelled at this time to address you. Tl
Loco-Focos of Ohio, though they have triumphe
at this time on the strength of their deafenir
clamor of ' Treason !' against the resigning Whi
Members of the late Legislature, and by maskii
for the moment their deadly hostility to any for
of Banking or Paper Money, are yet decided at
frank upon all questions of National Policy. Th?
are Destructives of the lehst equivocal stamp; o]
posed not merely to all measures looking to a N
tional Currency, but openly, bitterly hostile to tl
Protection of American Industry. TheirGoverni
elect is understood to ben Cnlhonn man ; theyai
all, with rare exceptions, supporters of. the Ca
houn doctrines. There is no 'incidental' m
'horizontal' juggle about them. In hostility I
Protection and hatred of its advocates, they ai
not exceeded by their brethren of New-Hampshii
or South Carolina. And such will inevitably 1
the large mnjority of their Representatives in tl
next Congress, no matter what may be the vote i
the People.
Thus, Freemen of New-York! the great issue i
Protection or No Protection comes down to yoi

NEW-YORK is the first State to elect legally Men

hearty advocates, or disguised nnd ireacherou
enemies of 1'roteciion ' Your votes and your cxei
ertion. must speedily determine.
For more tban fifty years, down ti> last w'mtei
the State of New-York has maintained one un
form position on this question. Her voice has bee
spontaneously, earnest)** raised in favor of th
principle and policy of Protection. Her ?Hustriou
Governor. Georse Clinton, urged its adoptlo
even before the Federal Constitution was formet
as well as repeatedly afterward. Protection i
Home Industry was one of the chief inducement
to the fotmation of thai Constitution, ond of he
assent to it. Her far-seeing and eloquent Ham
a,ton early and ably illustrated uml defended th
policy of Protection, in a Report which bas neve
vet been Controverted. Her patriotic Tompkin
repeatedly and zealously urged in bis several Mes
sages the most efficient Protection of our Homi
Industry by the repression of Foreign rivalry. Si
did her great De Witt Clinton, as well as mos
of his successors. Her Legislature in each casi
-responded to the sentiment, nor only with alacrit?
but with icmarkable unanimity, as the Journal:
abundantly show. On no important question ha
there been such eniireandcordial unanimityamon**
the People of New-York, through half a centurj
of agitation, as on this topic of Protection, dowr:
to the era of Loco-Focoism.
If the question of Protection or No Protection
could now be submitted directly and simply to the
People of New-York, we cannot doubt lhat the
cause of Protection would triumph by an over?
whelming majority. How. then, is it in danger
of subversion ? By indirection and fraud?by de?
ception and concealment?by jugglery ami trick?
bv a skulking silence and words which 'palter
with us in a double sense.' Witness the vote of
Silas Wright for his constituents accompanied by
his Speech against them: witness the Delphic
oracles of the Loco-Foco Slate Convention and
their echoes from the Albany Argus; witness the
response of a prominent Van Buren candidate for
Congress, when questioned as to his views of tho
Tarin, that he had not yet read the act. and did
know whether he should be for it <rr against it !
Can such a man. can such men.be fit Representa?
tives of the Producing Interests of New-York in
the crisis which the first session of the next Con?
gress must present ? Can men so ignorant or so
deceitful on the very highest and most imminent
question o?" National Policy, be proper guardians
of our Agricultural ar.d Mechanical inter?s- in
the straggle so rapidly approaching .'
Fellow-Citizens ! the course of our opponents
out of the city of New-York, evinces a deliberate
intention it? hood-wink and deceive the people on
this vital question. If our Farmer, and Mechanics
can by smooth, holiow words be lulled to sleep on
tbis topic, and a Recency delegation to Con
elected", then will Van Buren be ready to
openly bis game of rivalry with Calhoun fc
?apport of the Anti-TarirT States, by decisiv
unequivocal hostility to Protection. Then wi
dish.mesr cavils against the insufficient duti.
Wool, by that party which resisted even ti
crease of duty that was effected, and the delib
falsifications of many items of the New
now resorted to by our opponents, be change
that Hne<-juivc?_al and deadly hostility to Frote
now displayed by the Loco-Fccos of New
city. Then will be revived the old plan of 'c
ing the North by party macbinnry, and the 5
bv falling in with it ??measures.' Be not dece
we entreat you, Fellow-Citizens ! A result ad'
to the Whig party now is virtually a dec
against the principle of Protfvtion.'and will pi
blv seal its downfall. Will you not arouse toi
so deplorable a disaster ?

The Locos and Protection.?A great Wbi,
meeting was recently held at Lowell at whic,
Hon. Charles Hcdson, one of the most valua
b!e members of Congress, simply because he is ?
plain, straightforward, well-informed and patriori
man, made a speech of two hours in length?ii
which he took occasion to prove that notwitb
standing the abuse heaped up.n the last Congres*
by the minions of Tyler, it did more work am
passed more important bills than any preceding
Congress since the adoption of the Constitution,
He spoke also of the reasons which induced som?j
of the LocoFocos to vote for a Protective Tarif!
which finally passed, for which they are so loudly
lauded bv tho_e whose rule of action is hostility
to the Whigs. He says :?
" Ten of thase Loco-Foco vot?.*s came from Penn?
sylvania, and some of them fr?-m Free Trade men.
They argued thus : We shall have the power in
the next Congress: the country is in debt; a Pro?
tective Tariff is unpopular. We will vole to pass
this Tariff under a protest, (and most of those
who voted for it stale?! expressly that they disliked
the bill, ami votod for it against their own feel?
ing?,) and when we come into power ice trill lake
from it its protective character. These were
the arguments used and the? motives which'promp?
ted many of those twenty-five L?:*co-Focx__ to vote
for that bill. I know it, said Mr. Hudson, for I
The cry of Repeal was thus raised even before
the Bill was passed?and has been repeatedly
echoed since. What then has Protection to hope
