His whole life had been that of a patriot and an honest man.

It was then that I called around me my men that could be trusted, and told them the hour had come for a decisive blow that a work must be done on that Canada frontier that would lift the hearts of the American people from the gloom of re cent events, and enable them and their chil dren to ring bells, to fire cannon and build bonfires in commemoration of American Vic-terii-s that should obscure the memory of Hulls surrender. We fell to work and the thin a was done. (Cheers.) . The battles of Chip pewa and Lundy's Lane followed. Gen.

On the arrival of the cars at Midway a large crowd was assembled to greet the con quering hero, who' from the platform in front of the cars, was introduced to the crowd by Ex-Governor Metcalfe, and in a brief manner returned bis thanks to the assembly for their cordial greeting. As the cars moved off three loud and long huzzahs were given. The arrival of the old war-scarred hero st Frankfort was signalled by the booming roar of cannon and the stirring notes of Martial music.

Louisville Courier. The way Pierce "goes it" is Indiana. The Buffalo Courier says that Pierce is "going it" in Indiana with a perfect rush here's a specimen of the way ho "goes it," which would lead to the impression that the Courier man's idea of "going il" are of the moderate ort The Locofocus undertook to get up a meeting on Sept 1 0th, at Vinccnnes, Indiana. Hon. John Petlit was sent for to make a speech, and came. The meeting was called to order by the Chairman, in the Court House. Presently Mr. Pettit arose, mounted tbe judge's bench, and with an indignant air viewed the auditory and exclaimed: "Fellow-citizens: My appointment in Vin- cennes has been proclaimed far and wide, and. m viewing tins audience, I do not teel at lib erty to waste time and breath (and by severe exertion, probably cause hemorrhage oi me lungs,) in addressing this meager assemblage this evening, it the people uo not leei any more interest in the success and prosperity of the principles of the great Democratic party, and the election of Pierce and King, I am not a going to trouble myself in exerting my pow ers in promoting the cause in this communi- After concluding, he descended from the rostrum, amid cries for the old champion and war-horse of the Whig party, John Ewing, who, being present arose and stated that he came not to speak, but to listen, and respect fully declined. The meeting being over three cheirra being proposed, were loudly acceded to, for Scott and Graham. - The above, though ludicrous in the ex treme, ts o true tketch of fact, without any mirtpretntatim whatever. "Go it" Pierce! and he will "go it" much after that stylo throughout the Westeen States. Pierce knows no West the West will knew no Pierce!

Wonderful! We have the original New Hampshire Statesman, con taining the certificates of the one hundred Irishmen, which we published in the Journal- We don't dvpend upon extracts taken from some other paper. . The Statesman says, the New Hampshire Patriot shows this list we published fraudu lent. This is false. We give the material parts of the Patriot's article. Contemptible Game. Slicvegammon Kobinson has been burrowing here the wheel barrow man, and other fit associates; and in Dover, Manchester, and other places, getting up "certificates," in behalf of Scott, among the Irish. The result is before the public in '.he shape of lists of Irish names appended to false statements against General Pierce, and in favor of General Scott This is chai acterisiic. Robinson has had the temerity to gat the certificates of men who work with the wheel-horrow as though (hey were not worth noticing by these pimps of nrislocracy. It is a specimen of Locofo ism in its treatment of the Irish, when they don't happen to go just to suit them. The reader won't find any denial tint the names are genuine; but the editor says their Hatt mentt are false. This is an issue between him and them. One hundred Irishmen certi fy to a statement as a fact. The Editor of the Patriot says ihey state a falsehood. Here ars one hundred Irishmen against one Yan kee Locofoco; and on this authority the Statesman brands all the Irishmen as liars. Il is all in character ; but it won't win. The Patriot says, "the namas appended to those documents are doubtless, many of them spurious. Doubtless, eh! Give us the spu rious names. Don't hope to escape by this dodge. Again, it says, "others were ebtain- ed by gross misrepresentation. How do you know? Did any of them ever tell you so? If this is true, let them come out, as the men did whose names were forged to the Pierce certificate, and make affidavit that they were deceived. But no such thing will appear, be cause it is true. And Mis is the evidence which the States man officers, to prove that the Irishmen of New Hampshire have been certifying to a falsehood! It is like the rest of the efforts of that sheet in that line, a disgraceful failure. It is our impression that, notwithstanding these attacks upon the Irish, they will con tinue to stand br their old and true friend General Scott They don't care about he!p ing on the fortunes and prospects of the Brit ish free traders in this country. They are not anxious any longer to play into the hands of the captalists and moneyed men of England, They have got tired of following the advice of the London Times, and the English press generally. They desire to becomo a little more Americanised, as General Jeckson rec ommended. They prefer American to Brit ish interests, and when Ihey see the London l imes and all the British papers so anxious for the election of Pierce, they are begining to examine the reason for all this, and they find that their old British oppressors desire to secure all the trade of this country at the ex pense of our own workshops. 1 hey remem ber the thrilling speeches of Thomas Meagher, wherein he denounced this policy as that which destroyed Ireland. The British can not do this here by force of arms,but they de sire to accomplish the same result bv the election of Pierce, and the adoption of free trade, and they hope that Irishmen will help them bring about this result here, which ru- inwd Ireland, by voting for this Frank Pierce. It is evident the sons of the t-merald Isle be gin to see things as they are. We do not belire that any amount of blarney or force will make them vote for this British free trade party and policy. jf"Tho Kalamazoo Telegraph relates the following incident as having occurred during the speech of Mr. Chandler, delivered in that village a few days since: Washtenaw Whig. "At the early gathering of the meeting around the speaker s stand, among the crowd we noticed an Irishman, advanend in years, who had obtained a seat at one end of the platfor.n. Our attention had been dra more particularly towards him from the fact of a partial acquaintance arising from a cir cumstance, not necessary to be repeated here, which had occured a day or two previous. He appeared to be deeply interested in the remarks of the speaker, and more especially as any allusion was made to Gen. Scott While Mr. C. was speaking of the noble con duct of Gen. Scott in saving the lives of the twentv-tliree Irish prisoners, he was sudden lv interrupted by the person alluded to, with ' am one of those same men, and I propose three cheers for the gallant hero who saved us.'" Three cheers were accordingly given for Old Chippewa, and three more for the gallant old fellow who had fought under hi Mr. Chandler had living evidence of his state ment The Irishman has proof of what he represents himself to be." T To show what Gen. Scott's compan ions thought of his talents when he was quite a ; young man, we -make the following extract from a letter written by William lhompsonof Virginia to John Kandolph, then a member of Congress from the Old Dominion. The letter can be found in the life of John Randolph, by Hugh A. Garlrnd. Mr. Thompson says : We have been visited by the young ladies of Liberty Stock and by ils mentor, Major Scott. had rather hate his wisdom than A'ewton's or Loclcts's, for depend on it, he has dippvd deep in Ike. science of the mind. The single fact that President Madison in vited Scott, when under 23 years of age, into ins Cabinet, is evidence that in his early man hood he was one of the most extriordinary men of the times in respect to mental cultiva tion, political knowledge, and high statesman ship. - And we all know, that, during the near ly forty years that have since passed, his situ ations and occupations in life hav been such as to increase vastly those powers and accom plishments which early distinguished him. Louisville" Journal &Tbe N. Y. Evening Post finds fault with Gen. SCOTT because he told the peo ple of Cleveland, who turned out in multi tudes to see him in the midst of a drenching rain, that he regretted that they had got wet in their attempts to pay their respects to him! In the" estimation of the Post, a man who could so far forget himself as to express a friendly solicitude for the comfort of his friends, is not worthy of the suffrages of the people. We do not believe that the people are quite so sensitive as the rost is. Uen. OUU11 i telling his friends that it pained him to see them wet and muddy, will scarcely have the effect to depreciate him in the popular esti mation. It was a remarkable characteristic of the man and of his whole life, and eminent ly worthy of him. Practical humanity is not a fault even when exemplified in a soldier, or a candidate for the Presidency. Commerical Register THE FREEMAN: FREMONT, OHIO. J.S.FOIIKE Editor. SATURDAY. OCTOBER 0, T8S2.

Jjocofoco OitlpliUiIsm nt Home, Let it be considered by evsry voter, that the election NEXT TUESDAY, is to pro nounce the judgement of the people on the last winter's proceedings of the Legislature. That bodv will again meet in a few s weeks, and unless the stern rebuke of the voters of Ohio is visted upon their party for their ex travagant, profligate, and reckless waste of the people's money last winter, they will con tinue the same course at the next session. Here are the facts, Tax Payers! Read them, and then show them to your neighbors Let the people spurn all party shackles, and speak out honestly against and indignantly against their dishonest servants. The Loco party in this State promised the people a cheap government, if they would allow them to make a new Constitution. Their prom ises were believed, and the power was given over to them. They accordingly made a new Constitution, at a cost of $100,000 more than it required to make the old Constitution ; and then they elected a Legisla ture under it, with a Loco majority of almost two-thirds in both branches. They inserted a clause in the new Constitution, requiring the Legislature to bold its session once every two years, and then in plain violation of the spirit, if not the letter of that Constitution, their firist Legis lature under it, resolved to hold two sessions the first yearX The first of these two sessions was prolonged by party speeches, party meas ures, and party bickeriugs, for the long period of FOUR MONTHS, at an expense greater than tbe expenses of tho Whig Legislature for FOUR YEARS, while the Whigs held power in the State. The following figures are complied from the most reliable sources. The total amount of expenditure is shown by the laws last winter, which ctm be found in the office of any Justice of the Peaee. The ap propriations for pay of members and officers of the Legislature, and other expenses of that body, (see pages 325-32,) amounted to $30, 000. Then look at tho appropriations for ths same items by the Whig Legislature, (March 2, 1846,) amounting to only $20,000, being less than one fourth the amount for a whole year's session, than the Locos have spent, for a half a year's session. . Here are the items of expenditures for Leg islative purposes, last session: Per diem of Members ($4 each per day 120 days,) 62,880 Do for Clerks, Sergeats-at arms and Asssistants, at same rate, 17.2S0 Do for 12 Messenger Boys (at $1 each per day,) 1,440 Printing, 33,551 Total forour months Locofoco rule, f!15'151 Legislative expenses for four years of whig rule,(from 1844 to 1848)1 14 478 Printing for above 4 years, 47, 558 The Printing item is one third less for a whole year than tbe Locofoco bill for half a year, (refer to Sam Medary's pockets.) The number of politicol loafers quartered on the Legislature last winter in reward for their party services was 48, as follows: , Senate. Clerks and Assistants, 8 Sergeantsat-Arms, 7 Messenger Boys, 8 House 13 8 Total, 21 27 Here are 48 servants employed to attend on this Democratic Legislature for 4 months, atan expense of $18,720, or over $393 to each member I ! Comment in words on such facts, is use less. Let every voter make his own com ments at the ballot box. Salaries Increased- Locofoco Economy more Figuring for Tax Payers! Let the Tax Payers consider, while they are now paying their taxes to the Treasurer, that the Locofoco Legislature of last winter increased the wages and salaries of State offi cers in amount, more tban seventy fiv thou sand dollarsl The salary bill raised the sala ries of State officers about fifty per cent. Here are the salaries fixed by this Democrat ic Legislature. Governor, Supreme Judges, each. Common Pleas Judges, Secretary of State, Treasurer, Auditor, Librarian, $1,800 1,700 1,500 1,400 1.500 1600 600 Judges of criminal & special courts, 1500 Attorney Genera $1,000 and 3 per cent, collections, not to exceed $1,400. Lieut. Governor $5 per day, during the session of the Legislature. - The pay of members of the Legislature, Clerks, Sergeants-at-Arms and Door-keep era, was incresed from $3 per day to $4 per day. After thus increasing their own wages 33j- per cent, it was quite consistent that the Loco Legislature should increase the pay of their party servants in the State offices fifty per cent. During the last sitting of the legislature the total appropriations amount to 7 10,811, 89. being $372, 686,80 more than those of the preceeding session, although that was Loco foco enough. No wonder that in view of this extravagance, the State Auditor declar ed a deficit of $225, 071. 46, in the Treasury which he has authorized to make up out of the surplus fund. o DEDICATION.

Hea ton and Mugg addressed the people. A Word to Adopted Citizens. Read Read Read It has always been our aim, in publishing the Freeman, not to mix religion with poli tics, believing that each man's religion should be between himself and his Father in Heav en. But the extraordinary course of the op position in regard to Gen. Scott, leaves us no other alternative. We are either compelled to silently witness their base slanderings of the tried and faithful old patriot, or diseuss, incennectien with politics, the sacred subject of religion In portions of the country, where there are no Catholics, or adopted citizens. Gen. Scott is represented . as a rank Catholic, and op posed to the interests and rights of those per sons. In other portions of the country, where there are many adopted citizens, he is repre sented as being a Protestant, and a confirmed Native American. . ' Below, we publish a speech made by CoL W. G.

Mr. Chairman and fellow citizens, rou have done me the honor not only of asking me to address this meeting, but also by your lan guage in that call, bave endorsed the senti ments which I avow in my advocacy of the election of Franklin Pierce. When I made a speech at Pittsburgh recently, I did not ex pect that it would be published in the South ; but although in that I was mistaken, yet 1 think we may safely express our ooinions here in the privacy of our native fastness, with out the eye of publicity prying in to discover ua, Her there are no reporters to misinter pret our words in behalf of our exeat cham pion. You have already heard the claims of uen. tjcott urged to-day. Ibe gentleman who spoke before the Whig meeting adjourned, spoke no doubt very ably, but certainly very little to the purpose; their topic being in the main, men. not principles. None but the bas est will attempt to rob Gen. Scott of anv one ofhismany and blood-bought honors. No intelligent sane man will, for a moment, ques tion tbe bravery, integrity and magnanimity of the Whig candidate. We differ with Gen. Scott and his party on important principles. In the first place, he was born and educated in the South, in the atmosphere of slavery. Neither has he at any time expressed himself directly or indirectly opposed to the institu tion of slavery; pending the passage of the Fugitive Slave law he was acting as Secreta ry of War, and gave his entire influence in fa vor of that most infumous measure. . It must also be fresh in the memories of most of you, mat tie co-operated with the exploded Union Safety Committee. Nor do my objections to uen. acott end here. J or il is a fact well known that he treats his Protestant fellow- countrymen with no more favor than the Pa pists. Indeed, one of the most vaunted of his great actions is, that while a prisoner himself on board a British man of war, be ventured his own life to save the lives of a few Papist Irish men. Gen. Scolt, as Commander-in-Chief of the Army, tolerates the celebration of the Mass at all the military stations. After conquering Mexico, he even , permitted the Roman Catholic soldiers to kneel to tbe host as it passed. He and his party are in favor ot internal improvements by the Federal Government; a Protective tariff; a National Bank; arid the distribution of the public lands to actual settlers. All ot which measures ev ery Democrat who has a regard for ths suc cess of his party is bound to oppose. The also, you know, are the men who advocate separate appropriations for the support of Catholic bchoolK in tbe btate of New York. These are my principal objections to General Scott and his party. 1 now turn to General Pierce, your candidate and mine, and take a look at his principles. He was born and rear ed in a free State, and educated in the true doctrines of freedom; neither was he ever fondled nor nursed by a slave woman. Deeply imbued with the principles of liberty, he has boldly and emphatically said, that he "abhor- cd and loathed shivery." When the South ern Rights party interrogated both the Presi dential candidates. Gen. Scott replied, but Gen. Pierce treated them with silent contempt. f rankhn .fierce has the honor of belonging to a State, which can boast of having sent to the United States Senate ' that indomitable champion of human rights, John P. Hale. He (Pierce) has both in and out of Congress op posed internal improvements, a United stales bank, and a protective tariff. He is the lea der of the New Hampshire Democracy a State in which Popery cannot raise its hydra head ; there, no Papist is allowed to hold of fice, and their exclusion from the Legislature of the State is solely on ins to the efforts of Franklin Pierce and his party. (Uheers.) Gentlemen, which of these two men will you elect, the man who has always been opposed to Popery, or the man who tolerates it ? (Loud cries of "Pierce, Pierce.") I feel proud of that declaration, gentlemen. (Here a gentle man asked the speaker if the Democratic par ty were not now in favor of internal improve ments?) They are tiot in favor of internal improvements. You bave now heard my sen timents; are they alsoyours? (Yes, yes.) I now call for any resolutions that may be pre pared, expressive of the sense of this meeting. A series of resolutions vers here read to the following effect: 1. Resolved, That as General Scott is, by birth and education, a Southern man, and a Whig, no Democrat ought to vote for him. 2. Resolved, that this meeting will oppose all schemes for internal improvements, by the general government, or increasing the duties on imported goods. 3. Resolved, That all American Protestants should cordially support Franklin Pierce. LEWIS SHELDON, Ch'm. Nathaniel Brooks, Sec'y. Now we ask our fellow citizens, whether native or adopted, if the leaders of the Loco foco party are not pursuing a most infamous course against Gen.. Scott, to influence the people against him. Here in Sandusky coun ty, the Locofoco paper has teemed with char ges the most vile, and many of tbem forged to array Catholics and adopted citizens gen erally, against him, by representing him as being opposed to their religion, and their civil rights; CoL Haynes charges him with treating Catholics with as much consideration as he does Protestants. Col. Haynes is right Gen. Scott, in a letter written by him in 1841, says: Staunch Protestant as I am, loth by birth and conviction, I shall never consent to a par ty or State religion. Religion is too sacred a thinsr to be mingled with either. It should always be kept between each individual and his God; except in the way of reason and gen tle persuasion; as in families, churches, and ass other occasions of voluntary attendance after years of descretion, or reciprocal consent." v He has beeir charged with being in favor of compelling foreigners to setve in the array or navy one year, before they should be enti tled to the right of citizenship a charge which these editors and stump-speakers know to be false whenever they utter it, and if they had a spark of honesty left, they would at once retract the vile slander.' In addition to the rights now guarantied to foreigners, Gen. Scott is in favor of giving to those who serve j in the army or navy one year, the right to their citizenship, as some compensation for their services and patriotism. Those who do not serve in. the army or navy one year) can De naturalized in the usual' manner, tinder the laws as they now stand. There is not a locofoco editor, or locofoco one-horse stumper in the land, but that knows this is Gen. Scott'a position, and they know that they lit, every time they s'ay to tbe eontrary. In support of this proposition, we quote Gen. Scott's own words. 1 In a letter written over four veara ago by- him, we find the following extract: Certainly it would be impossible for roe to recommend or support any measure inten ded to exclude them (foreigners) from a just and fall participation, in all civil and political rights now secured to tbem by our republican laws and institutions." - : - r . Again, in a speech, made about the same lime, to a large concourse of people in New V York, on his return from Alexico, Gen. Scott says:- - ' - - '. - --. ; . . - "You bave been pleased, air. to allude to our adopted citizens. I can eay that the Iriih, me Germans, the Swiss, the French, the Brit ons, and other adopted citizens, fought in the same ranks, under tbe same colors, side br . . . ' siue, wuu native Dorn Americans exhibiting like courage and efficiency, and uniting at every victory in the same enthusiastic shouts in honor of our flag and country. From Ve ra Cruz to the Capital of Mexico, there vm one generous rivalry in heroic daring and unman acuievemenis. juel those who wit nessed that career of valor and patriotism sav. if they ean, what race, according to numbers. contributed most to the general success and glory of the campaign. On the many hard ought battles, there was no room for invidi. distinction. All proved themselves tht faithful sons of our beloved country, and ho spectator couldcut to dismiss any imaginary prejudice he might have entertained as to the comparative meriU of Americans by birth and Americans by adoption." Y-' - These are Gen Scott's views as expressed by himself, as to the merits and bravery of foreign-born citizens. Now bear what be says about rewarding them for their valor,' heroic daring, and sufferings , in -the cause of their adopted country;-- - ..-...':.-.:',..-- . - "Should I by the pirtiality of my country men be called to fill ' thfr presidential chair, I will recommend or opprove of a single alter ation in the Naturalization laws, - to .wit: Giving to all foreigners the right of citizenship, who shall faithfully - serve in the . army one year on board of our public ships, or in our land forces regular or volunteer on their receiving an honorable discharge from the service." r -" ..- ' '', Now mark, Geri. Scott does not say flint he is in favor of the repeal of the naturalization laws, as these loeofocos would bave yon be lieve, but that be will recommend a single al teration in them ; that is, he is in favor of giv ing to those foreigners who serve in tbe army or navy one year, the additional right to be naturalized at the end of that time. Those who do not serve in the army or navy one year, can be naturalized in tbe usual manner, under the laws as they now stand. - Notice.
