It is a subject of regret to us' and slioulJ

ments are not yet published and in the hands
of the people, which will give .the names of
each of this small array of office-holding gen

official document, as that document ii not yrt

result with a reasonable degree of certainty,

It is proper to remark that toward the end
of the session, the Locofocos became alarmed
at thwTast array' of retainers that were hang
ing about them, and by their persuation, or
threats, a few of these extra retainers were
discharged.- It is only by iuspection of the
Treasurer's books, and seeing bow much pay
each one received, that we can tell whether
ay thing, or how asuch should be .deducted
from this cam. . It wiU not materially lessen
thia aggregate, and we are '- aafe in placing

Let us, -for moment, look at the expense

that body -raised the wages of its members

Aug., 1814, the following retrospective and
prospective tribute to Oen. Scott. The opin
ion formed of the young man, by Thomas
Jsftstsoh, and his cabinet, has been entirely
realized by time.
' ". From Niles Reg.', Vol. 6, p. 4 40. .
" Uajor-Gbnsrai, Wikfild Scott. Peters
burgh Va August 16,' 1814. This gallant
soldier, who has not yet attained his thirtieth
year, is a native of this County (Dinwiddie.)
In this State be received his education and
its last polish at the College of : William and
Mary. With skill, diligence, persevrance, and
unrivalled eloquence he practiced the law for
a short time in the adjacent counties. But
his great soul aspired to "deeds of arms!"
He entered in the service of his country in
1808, and with the commission of captain of
light artillery, and in a short time joined the
Southern army under Oen. Wilkinson. - His
arrest, the charges against him, and. his un
paralleled defence on that occasion, have long
since been before the public " This noble de
fence convinced' the' cabinet at Washington,
and the world at large, that he was the schol
ar, the politician, and the , soldier. . Since
then, no man has ascended the military lad
der with more resplendent ' rapidity than has
Winfield Scott two 'more rounds, and he
will have topped the dirans of military honor I
-. Glowing with friendship, veneration and
pride, for this brave soldier, a number of cit
izens of PetersOuh, as we are informed, have
resolved to have madi- an elegant SWORD,
with appropriate devices, to be presented to
the Aero of Chippewa and Bridyewatvr,
ta hi bands we are confident that it never
will be drawn but in defence of his country's
rights, and never tarnished but by the blood
of our toes'.
- tST The gallant Gen. Shields thus speaks
of Gen. Scott. P .., , .
Gen. Winfield Scott is the candidate of the
Whig party. For him I entertain the high
est personal regard and esteem. I admire
him- as much as I do - any man living, for his
great military talents, and I consider him enti
tled to the grattitude of his country, for bis
glorious military services.'.' '. p"" ''
Gen. Shields is a native of Ireland, is U.
S. Senator, and a Democrat, and was a brave
soldier in the Mexican war. -
rp Whig Doctrine on the TariflCf ' r
: At the Baltimore Convention the Whigs re
asserted the eeiilimems they have always ad
vocated, in relation to the tariff, iq the follow
ing terms j. ,;4 ' t i , '?s.
Government should, be. conducted upon
principles of the strictest ' economy, and reve
nue sufficient for the" expense thereof, in
time of peace, ought - to, be , mainly - derived
from a duty , on -imports, and not
from direct taxes; and in levying such duties,
sound policy requires a just discrimination,
and protection from fraud by specific duties
when practicable.whereby suitable encourage
ment may be assured to American industry,
equally to all classes, and lo all portions of the
country. - '' . ,"' '
The leaders of the Locofoco party have ar
rayed themselves against this doctrine, and
in so doing, have arrayed themselves against
the manufacturing interests of the country.
They assert that a tariff is a tax , upon the
consumer, and they keep, making this asser
tion, though challenged to point to a single
article that has received six years protection
that has not sold at a less price at the end of
that time than it did when the duty was first
m posed. I be Whig doctrine, is precisely
that advocated by Washington,Jefferson, Mad
ison, Monroe and Jackson. The following
letter, written by Jackson to Dr. Colerann, in
1834, and reammed by him m a letter to Uov.
Ray, of Indiana, in 1828, is a good exposition
of Whig policy on this question : '
Washington City, April 26,' 1824.
: Heaven smiled upon us. and gave bsliber
erty and independence. ' That same- Provi
dence has blessed u with the means of na
tional independence and national defence.
If we omil or refuse to use the gifts which
have been extended to us, we ' deserve not
the continuation of his blessings. He has
filled our mountains and our plains with min
erals with lead, iron and copper and giv
en us a climate and a soil for the growing of
hemp nd wool. These being the great ma
terials of our national defence, they ought to
have extended to them adequate and fair pro
tection, that our manufacturer and laborer
may be placed in a fair competition with those
of Europe, and that we may have within our
country a supply of those leading and import
ant articles so essential in war.
I will ask, what is the real situation of the
agriculturist? Where has. the. American
farmer a market for hi surplus produce?
Except for cotton, he has neither a foreign nor
a home market. Does not this clearly prove.
when there is no market at home or abroad,
that there is too much labor employed in ag
riculture ? - Common sense at once points out
the remedy.' Take from agriculture in the
United istates six hundred . thousand men,
women and children, and you - will at once
give a market for more breadstuffs than all
Europe now furnishes ns. In short, sir, we
have too long been subject to the policy of
British merchants. It is time we should be
come a little more Americanized, snd instead
of feeding pauper and laborers of . England,
feed our own ; or else, in a short time, by
continuing our present policy, we - shall al! be
rendered paupers ourselves. ... It is- therefore,
my opinion that a careful and judicious tariff
is much wanted to pay our national debt, and
to attord us the means of that defence within
ourselves, on which the safety of our country
and liberty depends; and last, though not
least, give a proper distribution to our labor.
Inch must prove beneficial to the happiness,
independence, and wealth of the community.
1 am, sir, very respectfully, ' .
Your most obedient servant,
What was- the true doctrin then, is the
true doctrine now. It is high time we should
become Americanized, provide for American
laborers, instead of British paupers, snd elect
American and not British candidates.
"Who oppose Gen. Scottt
It is a common rremark, that you mnv
know a man by his friends. You can ' tell
something about him by noticing who are his
enemies. . lien. Sco't has various opponents.
the Kev. Mr. Brovrnlow oppose him be
cause he caused the churches and religious
services of the Catholics in Mexico to be res
pected by his soldiers. And all supporters of
the Religious Test in New Hampshire and
ascertained bigots everywhere follow the lead
of the Rev. Mr. Brownlow.
The London Times opposes him because
"Gen. Pierce will be S valuable practical ally
to the commercial policy of - England." by
which Ireland has been-ruined, and America
seriously injured. And the capitalists and
landholders in bngland follow the lead of the
- Messrs. Tombs and Stephens oppose hint
because "he gives no other guarantee for the
policy of his administration than the known
incidents of a long life," and they looked
through them, and can find nothing that indi
cates any leaning towards their views. And
the Southern Secessionist follow the lead of
Messrs. Toombs and Stephen.
The Philidelphia Sun oppose him because
"he is disposed to grant, too many privileges
to foreigners." And ;Nativists everywhere
follow the lead of the Philadelphia Sun.
The Mexicans and Canadians oppose him
because they think "be is loo much of a
military man." ' -
The South Carolina and Frontier malcon
tents oppose him because they think he is too
much of a Peace man.
The Snags and Sawyers and Shoals and
Breakers in the Rivers and Harbors oppose
him because they know that if be is elected
they will have to move.
Loco Foco office-holders, here and there
oppose him for the same reason.
And the greater part of the Loco Foco
party follow their lead, simply because they
are Loco-Focos, without knowing why or
wherefore. Wilson's Field Piece.

-v-.-, la Old Soldier. - '
"'A correspondent of the Louisville Courier,
travelling in Indianna," relates the" following
incident : - -, ' . ' ' " ' : ' '
' A yet there is not much political excite
ment in this section of Indiana ' Along the
road I found the Whigs were enthusiastic for
our glorious old leader the Patriot .Cuiar
tain, and the impression was general that
throughout the State he would gel a "right
smart sprinkling" of Democratic votes I am
strongly in hopes that our friends will carry
the Stale. ' They will' make a bold and gal
lant fight, and if they do hot achieve success,
it will not be because they do not deserve it.
There are many old soldiers in Indiana who
know and love their old commander, and who
will snpport him despite of the arbitrary exac
tions of party. " A pleasing incident,; going
to confirm the truth of this remark, occurred
a few days since, in Harrison county, some
twenty or thirty miles from New Albany, and
at the risk of making this : letter tedious I
will relate it: '- '
"A gentleman from Louisville while Visit
ing Harrison county -on business, was stand
ing nitb a squad of " gentleman discussing
politics. Oui friend, who is an enthusiastic
Whig, declared that there were thousands of
Democrats throughout the country, who bad
served under Gen. Scott, and who would vote
for him. A Democrat present took issue
with this statement, and pointed to an old
man who was approaching, remarked there is
one of his old soldiers, who, I wager, will nev
er vote for him. ! The old man joined the
crowd, when the Democrat asked him who he
intended to vote for, for President. Raising
himself his full height, the silver-headed old
veteran with much earnestness and feeling
responded Do you mean to insult me, sir!
Ask me, who fought under Gen. Scott at
Lundy's Lane, and whonow bears on my bod -y
eleven bullet wounds and one bayonet
woiihd ask. me,- who - saw Scott with the
most daring courage, leading his column where
the bullets flew the thickest and the danger
was the greatest, and who said, when making
the most desperate charges, "Come boys,"
and not 'go boys," and who with his com
manding loin was always in the advance, ask
me who I vote for!! ' Could I vote against
such a man? No! no! All I desire and pray
f;-r, is that the Lord may be pleased to spare
my poor life long enough to enable me to
cast my vote for. ay beloved old commander,
and then I am ready to die in peace."
The name of this old soldier, is Hansom
Johssoh, and he is one of the most respecta
ble citizens of his country. He isnow nine
ty years of age. The effect of this brief but
eloquent speech on the crowd may readily be
conceived, ; . ..
This is but one of the thousands that will
occur throughout the United States, especial
ly if the leaders of the shara Democracy con
tinue as they have commenced, not only to
disparage his personal qualities, but even to
deny his claims to eminent military renown.
Some of the traducers of Gen. Scott charge
him with "cowardice,'" and "dodging" bullets
on the field of battle, while others say he nev
er "planned the attack at Lundy's Lane, nor
deserved the honor of victory." '
Such things were not said in 1814, when
Scott was universally hailed as the hero of
Chippewa and Bridgewater, as bis old sol
diers will remember.. .
That Difference Another Phase.
Resolved, That we are opposed to any law
for the distribution of ' the proceeds of the
Public Lands as expedient in policy and re
pugnant to the Constitution; Third Reso
lution, Dem. Platform. i"'
Keep it before the people, then, that the
Democratic party are hostile to any liberal
policy in regard to Public Lands. That, true
to this resolution, Democrats in Congress
oppose the bill giving land to actual settlers,
and by their concerted action, keep the bill
from being acted upon.
Keep it before the people, that, in 1839, a
bill came before the Senate of the United
Slates providing that, when any of the pub
lic lands of the United States remained un
sold for the space of fifteen years, they may
be entered and purchased ta the number of
80 seres, by actual settlers,at 50 cents an acre ;
and a vote being had upon that bill, stood
ayes 22, nays 24. lost by two votes, and
those two mere FRANKLIN PIERCE and

Keep it before the people, that, by their
encouragement of foreign pauper labor by
their hostility to our pws landless- laborer-'
the Democratic party tend to build up an
Aristocracy of Manufactures in England and
an Aristocracy of Land Owners at home:
thus proving themselves democrats by as
sumption, not by liberal and politic principles.
The Cincinnati Gazette say the following
account of Pieroe is found in a-number of
the Philadelphia Saturday Courier, published
in September 1847. The Courier is a neu
tral paper: .
"Keenly looking to the future, and fearing
a pence which would disband the volunteers,
he refused to accept the genralsiup unless ne
received with his commission, six months full
pay, and rations for man and horse, in
advance, which, extraordinary as it may ap
pear, and unprecedented in the army, was
granted and paid to him before he mouuted
his charger or received' his sword purchased
for him by the ladies of Concord, of N. II.,
where he was a practicing attorney. -
Anti-Faintino Clcb. The "dissenters"
of the Loco-Foco party in Syracuse are form
ing an "Anti-Fainting Club." They say that
they have ' heretofore acted with the Loco
Foco party, but will do so no longer, at least
not till they can nominate something better
than a "confectionary candy-date." This is an
other touch of "Loco Harmony!" There are
many uch instances.
To Whigs Everywhere; m
" It is a safe rule in moral as well as in phy
sicial conflicts, never to underrate the strength
of the enemy, " Thia rule should ' not for a
moment be absent ' from' the reccollection of
the Whig party during the campaign.' -We
have supposed, however, that since General
Pierce was not a prominent candidate prior
to the assembling of the Baltimore Conven
tion, and resides in a small and border Com
monwealth, Our "Whig friends in the Central,
Western and Southern State may be suppo
sing the exertions in his behalf will therefore
be less than if he were located in a more cen
tra and favorable position." " As to the exer
tion being made in his behalf in other sec
tions of the' Union, the' -Whig residing in
those portions know better than we. But
our position i such as warrants us in saying
that the utmost ' exertions are. being made
here, by as unscrupulous and ravenous a set
of politicians as ever had being in the land, to
produce a result 7 which all good - Whig de
sire to avert There are prpbally at least five
hundred men in New Hampshire, who, should
General Pierce be chosen, expeet to have
prominent political . stations abroad, sayiag
nothing of aa many more who are on the look
out for the crumbs to be gained from com
mission as postmaster and other small offi
ce within the bounds of New Hampshire.
The Locofocos of this State are born with an
instinct for office, and it never die out; and
should such an event take place as the elec
tion of General Pierce,- they will on the 4th
of March; 1 853, be as plentiful and trouble
some at Washington as the lice of Egypt. -'Concord

The Germans and the Democracy.
We hear a great deal ' said of Locofoco
freindship for the Germans, and we know
that the Ger.nans, as a body.hav heretofore
been deceived into an honest friendship for
the party miscalling itself by the name . of
"Democracy." We think, however, that tne
time ts coming, if it be not now at the very
doors, when the Germans may see that the
moment they cease to be serviceable instru
ment in the hand of the Locofocos, these
same Locofocos will turn round and persecute
them. Look, for example, at the past and
present condition of things in Cincinnati. The
Germans of that city have, for years, been
the right arm of the Democratic party in
Hamilton county, fighting it battles, voting
its ticket, and bearing down the Whigs in
every contest. At last the startling discove
ry was made, a few weeks ago, that the lead
ing men of the Democratic party in that coun
ty, had banded themselves together ia a se
cret political organization, the" objects, the
name, and even the existence of which, were
lobe kept hid from the mass of the party.
The Association was called the "Miami Tribe;'
it met at midnight, and with guards at the
door, proceeded to nominate candidates for
offices high and low, from Congressmen and
Judges down to the tail of the -county ticket
The nomination being thus made in secret
the Tribe went to work, unsuspected.to force
them upon the people. Nomination Con
ventions were called, according to party usage,
and the people selected delegates to represent
tbem ; but the secret machinery was brought
to bear, and the nominations of the Tribe
were sure to be the nominations of the Con
vention. The people were mere tools, with
out knowing it, in the hands of corrupt and
selfish demagogues, banded together and ac
ting in the dark, for the purpose of keeping
themselves in office and every body else out
When this "infernal machine" was exposed;
when its iniquitous purposes were dragged in
to the light and looked at, it and its authors
were indignatly execrated by hundreds of
Democrats, and among the rest by Charles
Reemelin, a lending German Democrat of
Cincinnati a man of more mind, perhaps,
than any other individual of his party in Ham
ilton county. He reolved to snpport no can
didate for office who was a member of the
"Miami Tribe," and hundreds of his German
friends followed his example.
What is the consequence ? Do the so-call
ed Democracy now any longer pet them?
