The Slate of New York.
After a partial Whig preponderance of five
years, including;'.wo of complete ascendancy, tbe
State of New York lapses into the arms of Loco
Focoism. In the years 1838, '39, '40, and '41, tbe
Assembly was Whig; in tbe years :39, '40, '41 and
'42, the Executive was of ua; in '40 and '41 only
was there a Wbig majority in the Senate. Thus
while we have carried the State decisively at four
successive State Elections, we have had but. two
years of undivided svvay. We carried the State
as signally as it ever was carriwd in November
1837"; yet it was not till 1840 that we obtained the
control of the Canals. Loco-Focoism regained its
ascendancy by a similar vote in November, 1841,
and immediately took possession of the Canals; as
it now does, in the second year of its preponder?
ance, of all remaining patronage and power.
On the causes of these contrasted revolutions
we have not .room to speak at length. Briefly,
then, we think that in 1837 the State of New
York declared for the Whigs because the events
of that year had strikingly evinced the folly and
the ruinous effects of thnso principles and mea?
sures, in regard to Currency, Banking und Fi?
nance, on which Loco-Focoism is based?out of
which It grew. Sho now relapses into the em?
brace of the politicians she then emphatically re?
pudiated, because the distinctive features of their
policy have been covered from her sight by a suc?
cession of distracting events, mainly connected
with the flagrant apostacy of Tylerism. New
York has re-embraced Loco-Focoism in fact be?
cause she has forgotten what Loco-Focoism is.
Is this latest change a prelude to stability ? To
arrive at a correct answer to this question, we
must consider the causes which have produced it.
They are :
I. Tho inability of the Whige to enact those
measures of general beneficence which the People
expected, and which we as a party have done our
best to secure. Death and Treachery have been
too much for cur most determined exertions. The
successive Vetoes and the general defection of
John Tyler and his squad have prevented our car?
rying out most of our distinctive measures?mea?
sures through which alone did we hope to restore
Prosperity to the country?and, although the causes
of our failure were most notoriously such as toe
could not control, a portion of the People have
chosen to hold us responsible, and to vote against
the Whig party because Prices, Wages, Business
did not revive in the absence of those measures
which we had all along declared essential. If they
had done so, that would have bean conclusive
against all our positions. vBut what caros Igno?
rance for tho reason of things? Thousands have
voted for Bouck & Co. because the Whigs, with
their hands tied, could not make Wheat worth
ten shillings a bushel and Labor quick at. a dollar
a day.
IL The Tariff has been made to operate against
us, although that is the only step which has been
toward a real restoration of Prosperity. Among
the fo69 of Protection, as in this City, the Loco
Foco party is avowedly, ferociously Free Trade?
and this way all its cherished maxims, all its nat?
ural instincts, tend. But in Tariff sectioas it is as
good a Tariff party (in profession) as the world
ever aaw ; zealous for a high duty on Salt in Onon
daga; great on Iron in Clinton, and death on
Wool in Oneida, Rensselaer, Washington, &c.
Even the bitterly Free Trade Evening Post has
not scrupled to declaim against the low duty on
cheap Wool in order to excite the jealousy and hos?
tility ef the Wool-growing interest. The Onon
daga Standard and tho Rochester Daily Advertiser
declare for the Tariff as it is, and scout the idea
of a change; while other journals of the party
curse this Tariff as unequal and oppressive, but
go strong for a real Protective one, acting all the
time in harmonious brotherhood with those who
decry all Protection as a fraud and a blight on
Industry ! And all throughout the contest a lower
order of electioneered?who would declare you a
liar if you accused them of opposing Protection?
have been going round whispering privately in
the ears of the more ignorant Laboring Men?
"Why do you support the Tariff? It raises the
price of the articles you have to buy, but won't
increase your wages a cent." False as both thase
assertions are, they had a decided effect.
III. So with regard to the Public Works. While
the asti-Improvement Counties have been dosed
with genuine Hoflmanism, and the Moneyed and
Stockjobbing interests captivated by the prospect
of a rise of Stocks consequent on the absolute dis?
continuance of the Public Works ami tho rapid
5ayment of the State Debt by Direct Taxation, tbe
approvement Counties have been flattered with
assurances that the Loco-Foco party would go on
with the Work? as soon as any party could?havo
been pointed to Mr. Bouck's Canal services and his
?ealous advocacy of tho eight feet by eightv En?
largement?while the Railroad Counties have" been
kept in th* traces by secret assurances from
Wright, Bouck and other* that the triumph of
Loco-FocoiHtn should be speedily followed by the
completion of their great work. It is easy to
make promises in this way, and to gain votes by
them ; to fulfil them all, or to satisfy those to whom
they are made, is an after consideration.
IV. It would be idle to overlook the influence of
Tylarism in our late contest. Detested as the
incumbent of the White House is, his patronage,
?specially in this State, is too vast to permit him t?
be despicable in influence, either as an ally or an
opponeat. His three thousand dependents in this
State?more than half of whom acted with the
Whigs in 1840?have all been given distinctly to
understand that the inclination and the interest of
their master were involved in the triumph of Bouck
& Co. Beside these Swiss Guards, there is a
large number of expectants of appointments or
contracts from New-York to Buffalo, all of whom
knew that services to Loco-Focoism would best
commend them to the favor of Tyler. These ex?
pectants, too, aro mainlyjWhigs of 1340; and thus
the patronage which foil to tbe Whigs by the result
ofthat contest was used against us tar more fatally
than it courd have been done if wielded by our in?
veterate enemies. It might then have stimulated
Loco-Focos; it now paralyzed and corrupted many
Whigs. ,
V The disastrous results in other States injured
us very materially for the moment. The Whigs
were petrified: the fioodwood?what little of it
belonged to us?drifted off to the camp of the ad?
versary. On the back of all these disasters and
obstructions came a furious rain, which kept at
home 10,000 disheartened Whigs and possibly
1,000 Loco-Focos.
?In the face of such a combination of dishonest
but winning professions on the part of our oppo?
nents with discouragements on our own side, the
main body of the Whigs have stood firm, and con?
tested the ground inch by inch with a resolution
and zoal worthy of the best dp.ys of the Republic.
There has been much and cri ninal apathy, but the
working men of the parry never did their duty bet?
ter. In this City, for instance, in spite of a very
heavy defection of the Shipping Interest and those
connected with it, we have polled nearly as many
vote; as ever we did,dividing the Congressional Del?
egation,and making a breach in theLoco CountyTic
ket. In Albanv City anei County, tbe Whigs polled
more votes than ever before ; so they did, we think,
in Rensselaer, and some other Counties. The Lo?
co-Foco vote is probably just about that of Bouck in
1840?viz. 215,000; the Whig of course 195,000.
These are men who intend to vote the Whig Tick?
et in 1844, if they live so long ; and they general?
ly know why. The Loco-Foco aggregate includes
'he friends of Van Buren, of Calhoun, and of Ty
!er, with many who even now are the avowed ad?
vocates of Henry Clay. Of course, they have
taken an odd way of showing that friendship; but
that is their affair, not ours. Many Germans voted
for Bouck as a German who on al! practical ques?
tions are Whigs, and will prove it in 1844.
?What, then, is the prospect as to the Presi?
dential vote of this State? We have something
?o say on this point, but this article is already too
long. Suffice it for the present that our faith is
-trong that New-York will vote neither for Cal
?loun, nor Van Buren, nor Tyler, (!) but for that
true Statesman and Patriot, Henry Clay. We
shall give reasons for this faith hereafter.
An Eye to Wind-ward.
An overjoyed Loco-Foco writes from this City
m Friday the 11th to the Washington Globe a lot |
of very wild aggregates of the result of our Elec?
tion, clearly proving himself no very profound or
icurate Political observer, but winding- up as fol?
lows :
" I have often beard persons speak of tbe " moral etiect"
of an election, which I could never see clearly. But the mo?
ney "effect" of this election is clearly zissible. All tbe
-t?te stocks have gone up about 1 p?r cent, since tbe elec
ion. * * * My confidence in the Democratic party has
made for me about $500 in the rise of stocks."
(The Italics in this quoiation are ours except the
the word money, which is the writer's.) He is ev
idently moro familiar with money than moral' ef?
fects ' generally, which explains ths obtuseness he
?o frankly confesses.
We ask the good people of Erie, Niagara, Mon?
roe, Onondaga, Steuben, and other Counties infer
?sted in the unfinished Public Works, before they
-hout themselves hoarse over this stock-gambler's
? ictory, lo stop just one moment and calculate their
-hare of the profit and loss. Here is one of tho
victors chinking the $;'i00 in his pocket as his
-lice of ' tho Spoils '?there is no mistake in his ci?
phering. Others of his cloth have mado as much ;
?everala great deal more. But who has lost that
hey should win? What conviction is at the bot
om of this rise of Stocks ? Simply this : The
Stale of New-York has decided to abandon the
prosecution of her Public Works, until her
?25,000,000 of Debt, shall have been paid off by
Direct Taxation?a quarter of a century at least.
more Public Works?no more Stocks?and
?lenty of Taxation to pay oft' those already issued ;
?f course, Stocks must rise. Good reason here
vhy this stock-gambler should have gone his length
or Bouck and Company; but tho citizens of the
ecluded South-West?the salt-boilers of Syracuse
-the unemployed canal-rliggera every where?the
neu who have taxes to -pay and not divideuds to
eceive?if these have not missed a figure this
rail,we are utterly mistaken.
Let us here repeat that we will support any
imount of Taxation necessary to pay the accruing
nterest on the State Debt, and ihe principal when
lue. It is of the Tax-and-Stop policy?the policy
if taxing to make Internal Improvement unpopular
?that we complain.
4?ood Again from Indiana.
Dr. Thompson, Whig, has been elected from
Vllen County to the House of Representatives of
Indiana, in place of M. S. Wines, Loco, deceased.
vVe believe this gain renders morally certain the
?hoice of a Whig U. S. Senator for six years en?
tiling. Mr. Wines had 100 majority in August.
The reported death of A. L. Wheeler, Loco Re?
presentative from Marshall and Fulton Counties,
s contradioted by Mr. W., who says he takes as
nuch beef for his dinner as ever he did. On such
t point, we think he is to be credited, if he is a
Loco. So there arc no more vacancies to fill.?

Horrible ?ntrage.
We learn from a gentleman just from Hunting
ton, Long Island, that a most atiocious murder was
comrnittei at Old Fields, about four miles from
that town, on Sunday night. The victims were
Mr. Alexander Smith and his wife. Mr. S. was a
respectable farmer not far from 70 years of age,
and in good circumstances. He owned some 600
acres of land, upon which he lived, and had in his
employ eight or nine laborers, among whom was a
young German, who is supposed to have commit?
ted the murder. On Sunday all the laborers had
left except this German, who with Mr. Smith and
his wife were the only persons known to have re?
mained in tha house. At an early hour yestorday
morning the bodies of the two former were found
in their house by a Mr. Weeks, a tenant of Mr. S.
The body of Mr. Smith was partly lying in the
fire, and entirely ccnsumed from the feet up to the
chest. There were indications of a severe scuffle
having taken place with Mrs. Smith, whose body
was on the opposite side of the fire place, her dress
being very much torn and some of her hair pulled
out. The heads of both were beaten in, and a
heavy r tone-hammer, with which the deed was
perpetrated, was found stained with blood lying
but a few feet off. The German is known to have
taken passage in the Kteamboat at Cold Spring
yesterday morning for this city, and unless he left
by the Eastern or Northern boat he is undoubtedly
here vet. He is about 23 years old, some o feet
3 inches in bight, and speaks broken English.
When last seen he wore mustaches and was dressed
in a green coat and pantaloons and checked waist?
coat, and wore a small green cap. We understand
that our city Police are in active pursuit of him,
and trust that he will be in the hands of justice
within n day or two at farthest. It is supposed
that the horrid crime was committed for the sake
of the victim's money. The German on Sunday
asked a Dutchman there if Mr. Smith was not
rich ; and his desk was found broken open and
rilled. A reward of $200 is offered by the Sheriff
oT Suffolk Co. for the apprehension of the murderer.

tute. this e%cning at the Tabernacle before the Mer?
cantile Library Association upon the mutual rela

the few men in this country who have devoted
their lives to the cultivation of the highest Litera?
ture, to its assiduous advancement and perfection
as an Art, and to the production of works, not
adapted to ephemeral, popular tastes, but fitted
to endure and be admired by the judicious of all
ages. The elevated tone of his Poetry, and the
power which stamps all his productions, rank him
j among the highest of our literary men ; as a Critic,
[ formed upon the soundest principles and gifted
with the most eminent qualifications, he has no su?
perior in the country. The subject of his Lecture
to-night is ono upon which he is peculiarly fitted
to speak ; and we trust his discourse will be heard
by thousands of our citizens, disposed not only to
admire, but to profit by, the views of Life and Lit?
erature to which he may give utterance.

[Cahawba Democrat
Georgia?Governor's Message.?The Mes?
sage of Governor McDonald was sent to the Le?
gislature on the 9th inst. It is long and not spe?
cially important, and has little interest out of the
State. The affairs of the Central Bank occupy a
great deal of space, and the Governor takes occa?
sion to express his ? settled conviction thatu banks
of all descriptions are injurious to the people."
He says, certainly with great truth, that -'if there
were no banks there would be no losses by the de?
preciation of bank notes ;" one bank for the btate,
at all events he thinks quite sufficient. He invites
attention to the subject of education and recom?
mends the establishment of a Seminary of learning
for the poor of the State. Dr. W. B. Stevens is
writing a history of the State, and the Governor
recommends the extension to him of pecuniar}- as?
sistance. The report of the Stale Geologist, Dr.
Gotting, is ready for the press, and its publication
awaits the pleasure of the Legislature. Laws for
the suppression of usury and for the regulation of
the Penitentiary are recommended. The Tariff sys?
tem isdenounced, the Districting Law of Congress
is pronounced unconstitutional, the old National
Bank is stoutly cursed, the course of the Govern?
ment in closing the Seminole war is condemned.
Senator Berrien is abused, and the Message con?
cludes by advocating the remission of the tine im?
posed upon g -n. Jackson during the late war with
Great Britain; by a Court Murtiai at New-Orleans.
Ohio.?Official returns from all the Counties
show that ShannoH, the Loco-Fuco candidate for
Governor, has received fewer votes note tkan he
had in 1840, rchen Cortrin bealhim 1G,130. Here
are the aggregates:
1842. 1840.
Thomas Corwin, (Whig).125,621 145.442

Loco-Foco loss from'40..248; Whig do.. 19,821.
Shan, over Cor., 3,443; less thanC. and K., 1.980.
And this is what is called reversing the verdict
of 1840, and condemning for ever the measures of
the Whigs!
In Pickaway County, where Joseph Olds, Whig,
beat F.. B. Olds, Lo^o, for the House, by three
votes, the latter contests, and the elected Member,
not wishing to attend at all, resigns his seat. A

defeated candidate at the tegular Election will
doubtless be chosen without opposition.

Tennessee.?The Loco-Foco* in the Legisla?
ture still refuse to go into Joint Ballot for the
:hoice of a U. S.Senator, and the Joint Commit
ee on the Apportionment of the State for the
choice of Members of Congress has reported an
utter inability to agree on the details of a bill.
The House has resolved to adjourn on the 14th
inst. The Nashville Whig of the 5th says:
" Yesterday afternoon, Mr. Marable introduced
iuto the House a bill, laying off the State into Con?
gressional Districts, which, after a good deal of
sparring, passed the first reading. From present
indications, there appears to be no probability of
the Congressional Districts being laid off, nor do
we believe there will be any election of Senators
to the Congress of the United States."
Horrible Outrage.?In the Kuninsas (Iowa)
Gazette we lind the most extraordinary and cruel
relation of circumstances that \vc believe ever went
forth in type. An old man lived alone, and had
forbidden a daughter, who lived near, and her hus?
band, or even their children, ever tu approach his
place, on account merely of some whimsical pique
that the old man had taken against, his child. One
morning the inhuman being found his grandchild,
under throe years of age, climbing upon his garden
rail, und he deliberately went for his rifle end shot
the boy dead. The victim fell inside of tho fence.
Theuld man reloaded and sat watching. Notlong
after tho mother came seeking her child, and the
minute she touched her father's garden rail, as she
did with a shriek the instunt she perceived her
dead child, the old brute shot her in the temple
and killed her stone dead on the spot. The hoary
maniac (as he is now accounted) shot the father
also when he came, and he is now in prison to an?
swer fur the three murders.
HORRIBLE Murders.?The Greenville (S. C.)
Mountaineer, of Nov. 4th, says:?"We are in
tormed by a gentleman from Spartanburg that one
of the most awful scenes was enacted in that vil?
lage, on Tuesday night last, which we have ever
recorded. A drunken man, by the name of John
Davis, stubbed six men with a knife, two of whom
-T. J. Larder, Esq., and Mr. Samuel Brawley?
were killed. So far as our informant could ascer?
tain, the sufferers had not interfered with Davis,
in any manner; but some one had molested him,
when he arose from the bed in which ho was lying,
(it being 11 or 12 o'clock at night.) and com?
menced an indiscriminate slaughter. Davis was
secured. He is about 70 years of age."
Indians.?Some twelve or fourteen of the finest

Sands's Sarsaparilla.?Leper or Leprosy is a cutaneous
disorder appearing on various parts ot the body in whitish
dry scabs, which continue to spread until it becomes conflu?
ent, and the parts swell to an enormous extent. It is of an?
cient origin, and was well known to the Romans, Greeks
and Arabians, being considered a disease indicted lor trua
gressions. A Leper was looked upon as an outcast from
society. Leprosy hears a close resemblance to scrofula?
hence it is transmitted from sire to son, and many lepers may
be seen even in the present day. Its peculiar characteris?
tics are wbite scabs, which being displaced leave a fed spot,
and another scab soon is lormed, varying in size, oppressed
in the middle, but nlways having nearly a circular lornj.
It is believed there is no disease without an appropriate
remedy. The truth in this instance is fully verified, sod the
facts are amply proved. Sands's Sarsaparilla has laid the
monster low, and where the citadel of life has not sorreo?
dered, this medicine will exert its healing and restoring
powers, by dUplucing diseased action und producing a free
natural circulation and equilibrium through the ivstera,
when perfect health succeeds debility and disease.
