James K. Polk was elected, by the Dnnocratie rnajoiity, Speaker f the House: and w heu Mi. Polk came to Repreeentalivea !

Pierce did not rise above the dead level of me diocrity I Mr. Franklin Pierce wss afterwards, I was not made chairman of any commiuee of the United States Senate, and the two last years be was chairman of die com paratively unimportant committee of pen sions. Now, if Franklin Pierce was, while in Congress nine years, considered to be a'tnan of decided talents and slates manship, bow did il happen thai, under I die Democratic organizations of both , bouses, be should, for seven years out of nine, be appointed lo no chairmanship of any committee, and the other two years was chairman of the fourth or lifih rate mcs Ii u- portant Silas airman of finance. Kin of Alabama was chairman of commerce. Wall of New Jersey was c,air,MB v( tie judiciary committee, and j olher aide men chairmen of other impor. tant committees. . Such was the njea sure, ae anolied bv bis own party, of Franklin Pierce, while in the Congress of the Untied Slates. Now Mr. Franklin Pietce was in Con grew nine years, and had a fine field lot the display of hie ability and statesman- slim, il he possessed eidier. lJul he uia Dlav either I Where is tbe evidence ol il!

He has never dis nlaved either military or civil qualifica tions which give him the.leasi promi nence either as a military man ot a states man. l he conclusion of the matter, then, is hat Frankho Pieiee was a Genen! fen der ibe illustrious Beott is the rampatg n of Mexico, where there waa a great deal of bard fettling, yet be was not in a sin gle tu'.e 1 lie was a. tember of Con re hiiie yeara, and did. aothinf to dis nncuuh himself as a s aie.man he in irodurrd not a tingle be nt6 il public art -ongiiuir-d uo oicfcstire fr ti e public giMnl i.evcr iote above the level of ute. oWiity ner made a aing!e speech which bia fiiends dare puHiish'as ei denre of bis ability f He was, according lo tlit ufHrial report of the romunnding General in Mexico, an inva'id," during atl the hard tightm; in Mexico, and the record of Congrea show that he was equally inSrm, wrak-beaded end faint hearted during the nine yeara that he was in Congress. So low wss be rated by bis own political friends, tbat they, hav ing the ortfaniratinn in their own hands,; did not pUre him at ibe bead f any landing committee during seven of the nine yean of hia Congressional career! He has confessedly rendered no diMtn. guished military nor civil nervines lo hi country, unli ss bi. naked votes, sgaimi river and harbor nnproveinenta, againt pensions lo old soldiers and their widows, against lb settlement of the public land, by setaal occupants, and against doing any tiling lo aid the toaperiiy of the la bor and woiking men of bis own coun try, are deemed lo be included in the lat ter. He is surely, the mot blank and bald Presidential eandidate ever present ed lo the American peple for their auf- Incidents of the Campaign . Tlie Democratic presses in EastTen ucssee have been circulating the ra ii or that Gen. Cocke (a veteran Whig who thirty yeara ago represented in Costgress ihe district in Tennessee in which he resided,) had refused to sup port Gen. Scott, and declared bis in tention to vote for Gen. Pierce. The rumor having readied the ears of that firm old Whig, he disposes of it effec tually in the annexed letter, which. we find in the Knoxville Register of the 2rth ultimo: liutlcdge, August S3, 1852. Dar Suit I see iu the Unoxville Plcbian a communication from a De mocrat of this' county, in which it is skid that I atn"n'ol tmly unfriendly to the election of Gen. Scott, but that I will vote for Gen. Pierce in the ap proaching Presidential election. Why this statement is made I am at a loss to conjecture. I have never intimated to any one that I would vote for Gen. Pierce, nor hat it even entered tny mind to give such a vote. Il, accor din? to the old rule, "a man tnav 'lk. ?. l-.l. ' l. !.' !ue " " " v" 'I ""J" Ta Idinz out tlie' position of Gen. Pierce iin-j"'" " - . - - uP,,n. 1 ,e great ijuest.ona m which the South has so deep an interest. I would be gratified if "A Democrat," or the editor of the Plcbian, would tell the community how it is that Martin Van 15 lire n, John Van liuren, Preston King, Wilmot, and other leaders ot the Free soil party, who, four years ago, so bit terly opposed the election of Gen. Cass, now support with so much zeal and harmony Gen. Pierce ? Can there be but one reason for it, and is not that to be found in the fact that Gen. Cass did not favor their peculiar views and that Gen. Pierce does? They aban-. doned Gen. Cass for no other reason; and it must be inferred that they sup bort Gen. Pierce because they'know he is identified with them in their great reesoil movement. Gen. Scott was not my favorite; there are many others whom I would liave preferred before hint, and 1 have states! that I would not vote for him. I, in common with the people of Ten nessee, preferred Millard Fill mure. I could not get my choice. The Con vention of the Wh'ff parly in its wis' dom thought proper to nominate Gene. rai hcott; but, before Uoin"; so, a plat form of principles was proposed by the south, accepted by the JNortn, ana adopted by the Convention. The prin ciples therein embraced are dear to me as a Whiz and as aa American citizen. Gen. Scott accepts the nomination, en dorses the platform, and pledges the word and honor ot an old soldier who has devoted forty years of service to hiscountry's cause, toabide by them ana carry them out. tie is now theemooat meat and exponent of thete principles, and I trust wi too old a It'hig and too good a Whig lo desert htm now; for in deserting him I desert ny princi ples. (-..Therefore ;6ay. to, the Plebian that -I will not , vote for Pierce,-but that I will vote for Gen. Scott if 1 live. . , I have recently seen the statement of Lieut. Shields, of Sevier county, published in the Knoxville Register. 1 know him to be a man of truth, and he should be believed, and his state ment has gone far to remove the preju dices which I entertained for Gen. Scott personally. Very respectfully, . . ....) crj ,. JOHN COCKE. LETTER FROM AN OLD SOLDIER. We have believed, fays the Hants tille Southern Advocate,) since the canvass opened actively, that Scott would tint Tennessee. There was some disaffectiot at firsttome few soared polititians flew olf but tbe bone and sinew atood firm, closed their ranks, fixed their bayonets aad charged poo their opponents. Tbe indications now are that the soldier .State is safa for the gallant Id soldier who has always led tlie columns to victory. As one of tbe many indications we see. we cvdt the following letter from Lieut. Shields, of Seviercountv, Eat Tennessee. The Knoxville Regi.ter says he 14 is one of those win- volunteered Jrom bevier county to serve in the Mexican war; was afterward a lieutenant, commis sioned by Polk j fought in every battle in me vauey oi aiexico, was several times wounded in battle, aa the scars on his body testify." He now is en thusiastic fur Scott. Listen how he talks about his Id commander his words come bursting from the heart and communicates an electric thrill to the hearts of others: . ' 8evierUie, A a goat , USi. T tkb EerroK : I learn by the newspapers that some nan in "Little- uentuck has become very angry at me because I, a Democrat, should sup- rrt my old commander. General Scott, had supposed this was a free country, and that a man had a right to vote lor whom he pleased. The writer of that article saya that I am a convert. In that you are correct; I was a Demo crat, and at first felt like supporting). Pierce; but when I remembered the!, trials and daggers I had gone through with- while under Scott, 1 did not feel that I could do my feelings justice and vote against him. When I: thought of the long and toilsome march from Vera Cruz to the city of Mexico, when we were fifty days in the heart of an enemy's coun try, cut on trotnall supplies, aa well as Irom all communication with our country and friends, surrounded by guerillas on every side; and when you eard ol us airaiu we bad planted the star spangled banner upon the Halls of the Montezutnas, and it was still float ing triuphantly in the breeze over as biave an army and as nobie a com mander as ever went forth to battle J and when I heard my brave old com mander abused 1 could stand it no longer,' Well do I remember w ith what kindness he visited the sick and wounded in that campaign, and how he administered to their wants day after day. I tell you, Mr. Editor, the ofucertt and soldiers under his command loved him. You, my brother soldiers, remember how he visited the hospitals m the city ot Mexico, and how he ad ministered to the wants of the sick furnishing each man with a shirt, a blanket, a pair of shoes, and one dot lars worth ot tobacco ; and 1 tor one drew all these comforts and a knapsack also, as did all others who lost theirs in battle. And now I am to be abused because I choose to vote for my kind. jrene rous, noble, and brave old com mamler; and that too Irout a man who fires from behind a masked battery and won't sign his name. I venture the man that has written against me, and who is trving to tear down Scott, never slept on a wet blan ket; never stood sentry at night for his country; was never pat on half ra tions antl hard trackers, and was ne ver compelled to drink warm water, un. less it waa to work off a dose of physic uut it 1 am not mistaken, in November next we will give yon a hasty plate of Scott soup, that you will find warm enough for your comfort, and the water ot it shall be real Niagara water. But I said the soldiers under Scott's command loved him. You, brother soldiers, remember when he wa? ar rested ; you remember the morning he left the army for tire United States, and what was done that day ; yes, eve ry regiment marched round his quar ters, clad with a badge of mourning, in order to show how they honored and loved him. You know we had orders not to cheer ; but one of the volunteer companies was obliged to cheer and break the solemn silence, and cheer they did. This was a company of sharp shooters who took a part at Vera Cruz and Cerro Gordo, and who did so much of the guerrilla fighting on the road to the valley ol Mexico., ihey were a noble set of fellows", and did their duty to a man. You all remember how slow and sluggishly we inarched up the hill that brought us in view of the capital, before the battle of Contreras, and, on ariving at the top of it, there was our old commander looking though his spy glass and crying out to us as we pass ed him: "Bovs, the capital, the capi tal, the capital !" My fellow-soldiers, how did you feel in that hour? Didn't new lite take hold ot your weary, ton worn limbs; and were we not led from victory to victory until Scott waa' arrested and torn away from bis aob! army by bis wF Government? Bat, by the'blesaing f God, we will try and be with him aaia (n Novembers ind whenever Scott leads, ictore ia sure, rtcwapaper may talk about Sevier county falling o.t five hundred votes, and all that kiod of stuH, bat with !d Scott as our leader, she will roll op the largest Whig vote she ever gave. The " pine-knut boys who served uixlcr him am here, atiJ they 1 - . a wiu count in anv crowd. And bo', fellow soldiers, let's gl.e "a ion pull, a strong pull, and a pulL altogether' for our brave old chieftain. Gen. Scott. "Eves right," lorward march." J. VT. SHIELDS.
