Czi. E-tlcr's Letter of Acceptance. . The Washington Union of the 10th ; inat., contains General Butler's letter ot' " ' acceptance of the nomination by the National Democratic. Convention as their candidate Cor the Vice Presidency. 'I v, The letter of the Hon. Andrew Steven son had only reached him at Washing ton two days previous. The following it the correspondence : ; ' , ,;v Baltimore, May 30, 1848. Dear Sir: It becomes our duty to , rtiunicate to you the (act that the, . National Convention ot Kepublican . . Delegates, which assembled in this city on the 32d instant, lor the purpose of electing candidates for the two highest executive offices of the country, united ' in presenting your nam for that of Vict f resident oj tne unuca aiaies. That Convention also adopted resolu tion! containing the principles upon ''-,. which they believed the government ought to be administered, and which I have now the honor of transmitting to you. These resolutions constitute the true Democratic platform. That they i will meet your cordial assent, we feel well assured; ner are we the less salis- ' 'fieri, that should this high office be con ferred upon you by jour country, the Erinciples which these resolutions em race will be successfully illustrated in your administration. We offer vou our cordial congratula tions upon this distinguished proof of the confidence ot your country, ana are " very respectfully and truly, your friends end obedient servants, A. StKVNSON, President of Democratic Convention, And 30 Vice Presidents, To Maj. Gen Wm. O Butler. ' Washington, Aug. 8, 1843. Sir: I have the honor to acknowl edge the receipt of your communica tion as the organ of the Baltimore Con ventionwhich reached me only yes- terday announcing my nomination by that body as the democratic candidate for the office of Vice President. It is at all times proper in a free country, and at a crisis like this, deem ed indispensable in our own, that aspi rants to office should be distinctly un etood on all important questions of na tional policy; and my nomination for the office of Vice President has no doubt been made with a full knowledge of mine. My position while a member of Congress compelled me to take a decisive, though not a conspicuous, part on all the leading questions of the day. 1 might therefore appeal to the past as the best and safest guarantee for my future political course. Some of these questions are, however, daily growing in importance; and as I cannot consent to win the good opinion of others by disguising my own, and as 1 design this communication to be final, it may be r roper that I should be more explicit, fell the more impelled to this course from the consideration that my action s a member of Congress may not be ' accessible to the people at large. With this object in view, I have examined .carefully the proceedings of the conven tion by which 1 was nominated. 1 re cognise in the resolutions passed by that body but the re-marklng,and with an able hand, of the great lines of sepa ration between the democratic and whig parties lines that should be ever kept freshly before the people, and are o plainly laid down in the resolutions referred to, that "the wayfaring man, though a fool, cannot err therein." Those resolutions have been widely circulated, and are within the reach of all. I deem it sufficient to say that they meet my entire and unqualified appro bation. For this distinguished mark of con fidence and trust, 1 am most deeply grateful to my friends; and cannot but the more appreciate the honor done me, ' when 1 reflect that this nomination was made without my knowledge, while ab sent in a distant country, and by the unanimous voice of the convention. Mr acceptance is a matter of course. Permit me, in conclusion, sir, to ten der to you, and through you to the en tire democracy represented by the body over which you so ably presided, my grateful thanks for the distinguished honor they have done me. With high regard, I remain ; - truly your friend, ' i , ;,,;:.'i7 I' .'M : W.O.Butler. . flee. Andrew Stevenson, n I President of Democratic Convention. . i'i General Taylor's Income. General Taylor, on the score of econ omy, lefused all letters but those which ere pest paid. A Washington corres ' pondent of a New York paper, gives the following as the amount of pay he receives from the government: I find the following items among his monthly revenues, payable from Uncle Sam's strong boxes, to wit: cash, 19 rations per day lor hit own subsistence t twenty cents each, equal to $117 50 ' Dr month: eight rations per day for , length of service, equal to $59 80 more; forage for seven horses commuted at 43C per month, and pay for four ser vants. S38 per month total items a . little over $15 per day, or $470 CO ner month, or S5647 per year. , About these limes, it is altogether probable the General has various small v .additions by way of official gratified tions and Terquisites, working up his annual receipts to $7000, to say noth ing of his income irom a hpe plantation and three hundred negroes." v "t We presume it was not so much the 10 cents postage that fretted the Gen eral, as it was to confess himself the candidate of a party whose principles are so odious that it is a disgrace to avow them, and whose patriotism de nounced the wars in which he won nil his honors, and whose policy was to starve him and his soldiers in the ene mies country. Statesman. ; Factory Kiots Amazonian Rioters. The Pittsburg Daily Dispatch, gives the following account of the riot at Al legheny city on Monday last, a brief report of which was received by tele graph: , ' ' , "Our readers are aware that, for four weeks past our cotton " factories have been slopped on account of the passage of a ten hour law last session 61 the Legislature. , 'On yesterday morning, having procured sufficient hands willing to work twelve hours, the Penna cot ton factory, owned by Kennedy Childs &' Co., commenced operations. At about six o'clock a crowd of small boys and girls collected around the factory cheering tumultuously. Until nine o'clock the crowd gradually increased in number,by the addition of older per sons, girls and boys, men and women, who commenced tearing down the gate on Isabella street, with axes, but were repulsed by the Alleghany city police. "Mr. Childs then endeavored to in duce them to disperse, by addressing them, from the inside of the fence, but was driven off with mud, brick and stones when the fence was cut down, the windows on Isabella street demol ished, and the yard entered by the crowd, who, at noon had forced the gate fronting on the river; they then endeavored to force open the gate which they first attacked, in defending which the police were very rougly handled, one of them (Mr. John Weigley a watchman,) having his head badly cut by a brickbat, and his face also badly bruised; they succeeded in cutting away this gate, forced open the front door ol the mill, which they entered with a rush, breaking their way to the third story, driving out those who were at work, tearing oil their clothing, pulling their hair, scratching, kicking and beat ing them shamefully. ' "The mob remained in possession, destroyed windows and injuring the machinery, tor some time, when they returned to the yard, where a fw re mained up till evening. "About noon the sneritt appeared on the ground with the Pittsburg police, and a posse which he had summoned, but little was effected by them, the dam age having been chiefly completed at that time. "The manufactured cotton in the mill was destroyed by the mob, the female portion of which acted like so many furies, in the destruction of property and in attacking those more orderly and more industrious than themselves. "These girls, whose language was mosj outrageous, and a disgrace to those who used it, were terribly insulted last week at being recommended to go to work as "domestics'1 in the families of our citizens. We owe an apology to the domestics, if to any one for our suggestion. Riquette A Duel Perhaps. It will be recollected that the duel which resultbed in the death of Cilley, some years ago, originated in this man ner: Hon. Mr. Graves, of K v., con veyed a letter from J. W. Webb to Hon. J Cilley. Mr. C. refused to receive the letter. Mr. Graves thinking the refusal insulting, challenged Cilley and killed him! !, GenT Taylor refused to receive all etters post-marked at Philadelphia. dur ing the sitting of the Whig National Convention! Now, was not this in sulting to the Convention! If Mr. Graves was justified in challenging Cil ley and shooting him, the whig party would be justified in shooting General Taylor! The whole, whig party and Henry Ulay justified braves. , Let this matter be settled nccording to whig etiquette. Mr; Morehead, 1 we shall expect to learn, has challenged Gen. Taylor. Detroit Fret. Press. i!; , , The difficulty has been amicably ar ranged and as usual in such cases, on terms "honorable to both patties." Gov. Moorehead, wrote a second lime to the whig candidate, and took the precaution to have marked on . the en velope of the letter the magic words "paid 10 cents.", and this obviated nil objection, and made 'the lettei of Gen. Moorehead ht tor a. gentleman and a soldier to receive. ,' Another good effect produced by the pre-paying ol the post age was, that it made Gen. Taylor ac cept the nomination pt the ,VVhig INa- tion Convention. J hough not. worth a dime to. Gen. Taylor, yet, he was willing to accept it, provided it cost nothing. Ohio Statesman, , , '. T. D. Jones, the sculptor, who is rapidly attaining to a high and deserved eminence, has returned to the city having completed his bust of, General Taylor. Cincinnati Commercial'. " ' 'And General Taylor has about com pleted hit ' busi of" the whig" party .-j The Buffalo Convention, f This body met in Buffalo on the' 9th insL, to nominate a free soil candidate for President, und was organized by the. appointment of Charles F,". Adams,. sonoljohn Quincy Adams, as 1 resi dent, and eighteen Vice Presidents and seven Secretaries.,. . ... " Mr. N. Spindler, ol Knox county, is the Vice Pn-sident from Ohio, and Mr. T..Bojton, of ,Cleveland Secrey iary. v Hon.. P. King, from the informal committee on organization and other business, reported a series ol resold lions, which he said had received the unanimous concurrence of the commit tee representing half of the States of the Union, and composed ; of individuals lately belonging to all political parties. : i Resolved, That the ' States : within which slavery exists are alone respon sible for the existence or continuation of slavery within the limits of such States, and ..the Federal Government has neither responsibility nor constitu tional authority to abolish or regulate slavery within a State - where slavery now exists. ... . , . . Resolved; That the true, and -in the judgment of this Convention, the only safe means of preventing the extension of slavery into territory now free,' is to prohibit its existence in nil such terri tory by an act of tiengress. . i Resolved, That it is the duly of the Federal Government to relieve itself from all responsibility for the existence or continuation ol slavery whenever the government possesses constitution al authority to legislate on that subject, and is thus responsible for its existence. On the informal ballot for President, the vote stood, Van .Buren 159, Hale 129. Mr. Van Buren was subsequent ly nominated for President, and Charles F. Adams, of Massachusetts, for Vice President. These facts we gather from meagre despatches to the Cincinnati papers. The operator at this place was absent yesterday in search of .the broken wires and consequently the despatch' passed this point without notice.- Statesman, "Leaving the foul Party." In 1 840, when Mr. Van Buren was the candidate ot the democratic party, the words "leaving the foul party" waB a very common expression among those who then had such a holy horror' of blood-hounds. Mr. Porter, the editor of the Carroll Free Press, the sole whig organ of Car roll county, thus bids good-bje to I he no-party, no principled faction who slaughtered whig principles at Philadel phia. So we go in Ohio! "To the readers of the Free Press:-' Finding myself, after mature delibera tion, unable to yield any support to the nominee of the late Whig National Convention, 1 retire from the editorial department of this paper. It is not necessary, at this time, that I should make an exposition of my present po sition, suffice it to say that 1 am an "ul tra whig" one that regards principles as paramount to every other considera tion, and, therelore, cannot conscienti ously aid in the elevation of any man who was willing "to accept a nomina tion from a National Con vention, should such be held, for tho Presidency, from the whigs or democrats, or from both, should any think proper to tender it, without being pledged, or even consic ering myself so, to advocate the views or opinions of either." As Gen. Taylor, by his own showing, is not to be tho "advocate" of whig prin ciples, I conceive that, in hi present position, supporting him would be a vir tual abandonment of those principles, and, therefore, must decline to become his "advocate."
