L , In yesterday's Daily, we proposed 'to give Straigh tout's speech to-day. t'Wt exclude much other matter to fulfil our promiie and present to our readers, ' the first Democratic speech delivered - by the gallant Col. Wtncoop, at a gath ering of the Democracy of Old Buck's county, Pa. on Saturday last, at Doyles- town, the county seat. General Fat Hereon, Colonel Samuel W. Black, and other patriots of the war with Mexico were there and made speeches, all of 'which were received -with enthusiasm, The proceedings of the meeting are re ''ported in that excellent paper, ihe Phil adelphia Spirit of the Times of Mon ' day, from which we quote Colonel 'AVyncoop's speech 83 follows: -'- The gallant and fine looking Col. - 7u.nr! rVf. VVrNc.oos was then intro- 'duced.amid the enthusiasm of the peo "'pie, rim ng; whom he had drawn his f' first breath. 1 It seemed as if the hur 'rahs would never come to an end. - It 1 was an interesting scene to behold a Democratic; meeting welcoming into - the arms . ol the party, a son, who hasl wandered from -the iaith, but who -tvai I how 'returning with joy to those ' ho most loved him. He proceeded, "lifter the' applause had subsided, to ad- 'minister such a dose to me wings mat ' they will scarcely recover Irom its ef ' lect until after the 7th of November ."iiext, and most likely not at all. We do not pretend in the following remarks f to do him full justice; but as nearly as re could, we took down his language, 'and his ideas in his own words. The 'anxiety to hear him was so great that . the crowd pressed between him and our table, and prerentea us caicningau tnai Jh said.''' He spoke substantially as follows:"-' v -'V. -u" Old Friends and Playmates! As ' ociates of my youth! Companions of riy boyhood's sports! I was born J among you drew my first breath in 'jrouf midst fished in your streams and gunned in your woods! ; 1 have i1 been absent for a long time,' I have been far separated from you, but my native "home lias ever Deen warm in my re- Collection never forgotten!

I knew that blood good, true, red American blood had been shed upon 'American soil, and it was that feeling that induced me to take up my musket. .. I have nev er doubted the justness of this war. (Cheers.) And .yielding to the influ ence and force of motives, I could not resist 1 gave in 'my adhesion to the Democratic party, with my heart and soul. (Cheers.) , 1 can trace back to the Whig party, most of the carnage that reddened the plains of Mexico! 1 can point to litem as the cause of the guerrilla system, with all its'enormity and blood-thirstiness. I heard the ar guments the Whig orators addressed to the populace, and 1 know, their influ ence in inciting the Mexicans to an ob stinate and ' desperate resistance. . 1 knew, too, their influence upon my poor men, some of whose bones are now bleaching upon the plains of Mexico. I point to the Mexican, party in the United States with Henry Claj at their head, as the cause of all this evil. Taking the hint from him and his par ty, Salas, the originator of the guerrilla system, urged that they should "hunt them down, worry them out and pro long the war. "You can't overcome them," he said M when you meet them face .to face, and thousand to thousand." "The Democratic ; party,". he said, "would insist upon a prosecution of the war, and would have an indemnity; but if the Whig party comes into pow er we will have a peace without any sacrifice of territory." How this plan of Salas, suggested by the. Whig party, in the United .States succeeded let the bones of the Americans now in.Mexi co testify; let the gallant spirits who were maimed and are now lying in the hospitals speak out; and let the dead officers who fell along' the National Road utter: their voices. And these men were there struggling for their country's honor, not for one State, but the whole Union. And what was their position! ' Surrounded by an enemy, numerous enough to crush them, and eat them they found a party at home where they ihould look for succork moulding the ball, preparing the pow der, and sharpening the knife to assas sinate them. . What was the reward for which they looked? The approval of their cpuntrymert nothing else they earnestly' gazed three thousand miles back to their native land for that ap proval.' Where they should have found assistance,and indeed approbation, they found nothing fjom the Whig party but hostility. ; They . -turned back to the work with broken hearts they, felt that there were black-hearted, smooth skinned politicians at home encourag ing the Mexican - blood hounds to seek after their blood... But the crowning act of all, and that which, drove out pf my heart the last vestige of whig affec tion, was Henry Clay's speech and resolutions at Lexington. " 1 tell you, and 1 speak it ' in honesty, that tears rolled, down, my cheeks when I read them; and that too published in good Spanish. , I found them circulating in every street and corner of Fuebla. Where then were my 'whig principles! In the dust, and so help me God, I hope forever. (Great cheering.). Another circumstance I must allude to, a few weeks after, 1 received the Monitor American.' It contained the proceed ings of the Philanthropic Society, com posed ofmeahigh in Mexico', in which were resolutions, complimentary of Messrs., Clay, Corwin, Giddings, Botts &c.,nnd announcing that "these illustri ous friends of humanity,' have , been elected honorary members of the Phi lanthropic Society,' and fellow citizens, let them remain there forever, (Cheers.) i Now, I am not here for the purpose of making a , political: speech I. have been spending my time in the camp, at tending to the duties of the soldier. I Cannot take 'time to 'discuss the princi ples which were in vogue when I left, and which: the change in our circum stances may require to be able, to dis cuss these questions as. eloquently as those who have preceded me. I havo been used to Took upon the two par ties as being divided, by the .simple lifie of, for or against the .war,. or as I inter pret it, for or against- the country. (Cheers.) -But I, talk to you from the honest influence of on old Bucks coun ty heart, and would like to be able to take, late 'authority upon the subjects that now Agitate ithe public mind." I know one of the candidates pf the dem ocratic party; well. 1 know the other as well as l can from history," . Gen. Cass' biography, is the history of the country. Hii services in the field are brilliant and -eminent. His life lias been that of a good r sound, patriot. As a statesman, you all know him there can be no doubt as to his honesty, and his qualifications. Gen.. Butler 1 am intimately acquainted with. He was my Major General. I know him to be an honorable, gallant, worthy and accomplished American citizen. 1 have little to say, about the whig candidates, Gen. iTaylor 1 know par tially, and cheerfully lend my testimo ny relative to his high abilities as a gen eral But I have always looked, as a whig, upon Henry Clay as the High Priest of whig principles. Had I never gone into this campaign, and not met with proof that the whigs were against the war and not lead - the Lexington speech, I would still be a whig. And now, the very party, which for expe diency sake condemned the war, and advised, the- Mexicans to welcome the American army with bloody hands" and "hospitable graves," have taken up Gen. Taylor as their candidate for the Presidency, whose glory was acquired (according to them) in an unholy, tyran nical, iniquitous and unjust war. Gen. Taylor received his reward, and we might as well expect a blacksmith to make a good watch as he make a good President.--''' ' had a desire that the first Demo cratic speech that I ever made, should be delivered in the old county of my birth, and my desire is now gratified. I am surrounded by eloquent gentle men, accustomed to speaking, and knowing better the various questions that : should: be discussed than 1 do. And now I will yield the stand to them. The above is an imperfect sketch of what Colonel Wtncoop said.., ' He was loudly cheered at every sentence, and when he took his seat i three ; hearty cheets were given him by the whole multitude. , - , , ,; ... . Gen. Cass The Right of Search- ', . Abbot Lawrence, &c, &c, , Federal editors charge that when Gen. Cass defeated the Quintuple Trea ty he defeated a project for. the sup pression of the slave trade, carefully concealing from their readers, the fact, that if that treaty had been consumma ted, England would have the right . to search the vessels of the world, and would have dragged the best sailors from them, as she did from American vessels previous to the last war,1 for "Free trade and Sailors' Rights,'? and forced them,: by the lash, to fight her battles.. For . exposing and defeating this attempt of England to ride undis puted mistress of the ocean, to cripple the commerce1 of every other nation, and insulting tha flag of our i govern ments," by stopping, detaining s. and searching every vessel that floats; the ocean, General Cass, at the Jime re ceived the thanks of every man engag ed in commerce, and the patriotic of all panies.' Though Mr. Webster sought to disgrace him; though lor his efforts to defend; the flag of his country, Gen. Cass, was not sustained by the Admin istration of Mr! Tyler, which was then under the 'influence of Mr. Webster, yet even in Boston, where the then Sec retary of State,; was most potent, the people without party distinction, rose up to do him honor,. Among the com pliments he received on his return to the United States, was the following which we commend to the careful at tention of the whig editors?: j. ;; ; , a,fl Boston, Dec J, 1842. , '. "Sir: The undersigned citizens of New England,' would congratulate your excellency on your safe return to your native country after; your faithful ser vices and energetic proceedings at an important, crisis in ..your, distinguished mission; and respectfully request that you 'will ' give 'them and their ; fellow citizens an opportunity of expressing personally the high respect Which your publio career and private virtues have uniforrnly inspired.. ., , i ( "Returning fas you,, do with the ap probation of that generous people, who were the first, and for a long time, the only friends' of Our fathers, we should prefer, that .the. meeting should beat such a time as would suit your conve nience, in Faneutl Hall, the spot asso ciated most nearly with, the dangers in which ' both nations participated,' and the place in which, of all others, Amer icans would desire to welcome her de serving sons. .... .,... ,: V.We are,, with sentiments of the highest consideration, yourexcelleBcy's most obedient servants, Samuel T, Armstrong.

When this question is answered in the affirmative, we will show its falsity. Ohio' Statesman. i ; ' : Truth. V , : The investigation and dissemination of truth is one cf the noblest employ ments of men. It is labor which yields a hundred fold. It adds to the store house of knowledge, and continues to exalt and bless our race. "Truth is mighty," and , its . influence, like Ihe wave made by a pebble, widens and widens till it breaks on the boundless shore of eternity. It may seem lost for a time, but it is only the loss of the sun obscured by a flitting cloud, which, when it has passed over and gone, shines forth with increased brightness to gladden the face of Nature, Truths uttered centuries ago. are still sound ing in our ears. ., The .skeptic may dis regard these, and the sophist try to bu "ry them in oblivion, yet they "will pre vail." Eternity is their lifetime, and (he test Of ages but adds to their bril liancy and beauty. :1 '- ' '" ' ! The sources from which truths may be gathered are many and various:, yet they are chiefly found within two vol umej those of inspiration and Nature. Each one of these volumes was written by the same unerring 'wisdom, and when studied intelligently and in con nexion with, each .other, they tend to promote virtue and secure happiness. The moral taws of God's kingdom are embodied in the former, and the physi cal ! in the latter. ' Between the two there is a corresponding harmony, for the author.of.the System of Nature js one and the same being. There is no contradiction or disagreement beiween the truths of Natural Science and those of Revelation. For y e are , told, that since hypothetic assumptions, and the oretical reasonings are no longer made use of in the investigation of Nature, but the certain,' invariable process of induction, all discoveries in science are completely ; accordant with the Scrip tures of, truth,-and illustrative of many of the i sublime sentiments they con tain. ,.' '.'", " ' - " ' ;The' study of the former volume commends itself to ' us, inasmuch as it emanated from the "father i of light" and instead of being an imposition up on the ;credu!ify f mankind, is the vol ume of inspired Truth; containing rules by 'which we are to govern our conduct, that we i may obtain . happiness - in this life, and also in that which is to come.' By! the study of this volume alone man may grow wise unto Salva tion; .') 'Tis not soj however, in regard to the study of the later volume, .. The greatest ) philosopher', that ever lived, without the Bible, would be as ignorant of eternal life and the way to obtain it, as the most benighted Heathen. Yet when the two are studied in con nexion with each other, the study of the later becomes of no trifling import ance. The study Nature is no study of fiction.. 'Tis the ' study of truths for truth flows in every rivulet; it is breath ed forth from every spear of grass, from every herb and every flower; it floats on the winds of Heaven, and is. found in the caverns of the earth. !

(.fi::i , ; America a Cturtir. - ' ', From the Home Journal, . s One of Banyard's Stories, - i.Wfien Banvard was coming on from the west with his great Panorama ol the Mississippi river, he passed up the Ohio in the steamer Clipper,' and it being a season when there was a great deal of travelling,, the boat was much crowded. . Several very large and long boxes, which contained the differ ent, cylinders of the painting, "were piled upon the deck, which could not but meet the eyes of the passengers, and being painted red, soon caused some remarks to be made as to . what the contents could be. One of the passengers, who had an over abundant stock of curiosity and wished to satisfy his own ' mind at least, ' commenced peeping and prying around, but finding no directions on or about the boxes, was about to give up the task, when he spied the mate giving orders to some of the hands, and made for him with an anxious mind, expecting to obtain the information he so much desired. He cautiously, approached him, and in a low tone, said: "Mr. Mate, please tell me what those large boxes contain " For a moment the mate hesitated, as if considering whether to do so or not, and with a significant nod beckoned the stranger to follow him to another part of the boat, which he did. On reaching the upper deck, they found themselves alone, when the mate, in a low tone, said: If he would keep it a secret, and not let the other passengers know about it he would confide in him. This was readily consented to, when the mate, with a long and solemn countenance, said: "That in those large boxes were the remains of our gallant men who fell at the late battle of ''Palo Alto," among whom were many distinguished officers, as also the lamented R ." The stranger seemed satisfied, and the two parted the mate for the wheel house," and the stranger to the deck, once more to view the long red boxes. The secret was too much to long remain in the possession of one, for in a few moments a visible change was seen in many faces, and ' the bright smile gave place to a melancholy change. It was ascertained, that. the boxes. were going to Cumberland, over the mountains, and although the caution had been given to the stranger not to make known their contents, for fear of creating a dissatisfaction among the passengers, it was very evident it was of little avail, for on reaching Browns ville the landing, of the steamer many a sad glance was given, as the passengers left the boat. Many of the passengers passed on to Cumberland, among whom -was the curious stranger, and the inhabitants of that place were soon informed of the expected arrival. At this time, there was a large volun teer company formed, which in a few days was to start for the seat of war; and the captain becoming acquainted with the facts, through some of the passengers, resolved to pay. a tribute of respect as the remains entered. . The captain, was filled with military glory and could hot think of letting the boxes pass through without showing his true, patriotic feeling in respect to the re mains of the fallen heroes. In a, short time his company was out and for a full hour drilling, in order to make an appearance worthy of the occasion.' ' It was announced that the procession would enter the city about noon and at one o'clock business was at a stand, and the inhabitants patiently awaiting the entree of the solemn spectacle,' The company had marched out of town about a mile, and the wagons coming up, the captain made known his inten tion to Mr, B., who being (Well aware of the joke on board the boat, and not wishing to disappoint the gallant captain and the many who joined the solemni ties,' decided to carry it through. -Accordingly, the march was commenced, and on entering the city, although not accompanied: by a .full ,band, the sol emn notes, of martial, music fell sadly upon the ears of the assembled crowd. The escort was for about a mile and a half to the cars, on reaching which it was ordered to 'stack arras,", and all assisted in transporting the heavy boxes from the wagons to the cars which were to bring them north. , ." .' , This ' being accomplised,' the com pany I was again drawn up in a line, and a volley of three 'rounds fired in honor of the occasion when , the cap tain and company returned j to their quarters, highly satisfied with the pro ceedings conferred upon the remains of the illustrious dead. : A few days afterwards, when the talk had subsided, and quietness once more was restored, the joke was made known to, some of the citizens by the mate of the Clipper, and to this day, 'many a hearty laugh is had at the captain -of the volunteer - MECHANICAL EXECUTION l BT H. .ADOLPHIB KVJTlA V; ; 5 TERMS OF ADVERTISING. viVf '.'
