Meantime, let the grand jurors of an honest [•nd moral and virtuous comtnunity, bring the guiitjfs|p condign punishment. OB LI ATIggy^F T-OTING. Mr. Dewey, in his late work, "Moral Views tf Society, Commerce and Politics," has the following remarks: *'I have dwelt much longer than 1 intended pen this first :ur.Jation principle of our polit ical moralit)—that which requires every legal ly qualified citizen to give hi* vote at the elec tions. There is another duty coincident with this, which is too often violated to be passed over in silence and-that is'the duly of giving an honest vote. "Every citizen, in his primary act, that j|ifM its being and character to the Govern is bound to express his honest convic &r\\e vote demands the contribution of ef his judgment, of his patriotism ftnd fidelity to the common weal. The citizen is the real governor and if the elected ruler is forbidden, by every just-principle, to swerve from an honest purpose toward the public good, so is the ruling elector. And he who S'irrendpifs his judgment or his conscience to private interest, or the mere dictation of a par ty fcte who accepts a bribe or offers one he who, iu the ballot, smothers his o*vn convic tion, or attempts to coerce another's, is per jured in the holiest rites which he swears upon his country's altar. ••The familiarity With which certain trans actions at the prdls are spoken of, yes, pnlpa blo infractions of the law, witii regard to the age, residence, and where a property qualifica tion is required, the property of voters—the freedom with which parties charge these prac tices upoo each other after an election—are facts of evil omen. And the common defence ^et up for them is, if possible, worse than the Things tbtmselves. We are constantly told, every nerve must be strained, every means \jsed, tccarry certain measures the opposite party lei*e no means, however fiagicious and untried, and we must meet them on owyi ground—must fight them with their own weapons. Admirable doctrine! that goes around we whole circuit of parlies, and lends a hattdltf to each one, wherewith to push on the cmulatife argument for dishonesty and in trigue! The country in danger! ami to be saved by corruption, bribery, false swearing, and the violated law! The nation sick and prostrate by the tampering of some ignorant administration with its health and vigor—and how to be cured? By the canker and the gangr^O# they are eating out its very vitals! Away with such paltering and paltry argu ments for the expedient against the right! If itmust.be so, I ha 1 rather my countiy were destroyed by truth than saved by falsehood. I would rather it were ruined by virtue than Re deemed by corruption. But do not the very terms of this statement show that it is not so? No 'honesty is the best policy' for manor na iudividual or party. But if honesty hany where to be demanded or expected, il tl in the first act that gives its character.to the Joveranent—'he elections. Admit any false principle there, and what, in consistency, can you look PI 11'.,,, RL for but a corrupt Government? Will you poison the fountain-head an expect the stream to be pure? "I insist, then, that the election shall be honest. A roan should no more dare to he fclse to his own mind, false to conscience, in giving his vote, than ho would in giving his .Word. Hig vote is his word, and the only |ford, perhaps, that he CAN speak in the great '•Br of the nation. If that word is a lie, he Sacrifices, as far as in him is, the right govern ment and rectitude of the country."

The contribu tors to this enormous sum are the real tenipt -they are the guilty—and deserve the misHinent, if any is to be'fiiflictcd. MIN CHANGE, PRINCIPLES NEVER.-—The following lean extract, delivered in the United Slates Senate, on the 6th day of April, 1819, by John Tyler, the candidate of the Federal Whig Bank party for the Vice Presidency: ""For one, I enter my protest against the banking system, as conducted in this country --3 system not to be supported by any correct principles of political economy—a "THE POOR MAN'S PARTY."-—In Louisi &ia«a oojMUl can voteuiinless he is a freehold er. A late proposition to extend the right of suffrage was voted down in the Senate, every Harrisotv'tna:) voting against it, and every Van Buren man for it. This is the position of the two parties throughouUthe whole country.— Websrter declares "it is the part of wisdom to found government on property." Trace the two parties wherever you will and this same difference is found. In Rhode Island none but freeholders are allowed to vote, and at enafcry attempt that has been made to obviate tktft stat6-of things, the Federal party has beeifcflf opposition, and the Republicans in favor. «SjSo it always has been—so it always will be, and that laboring man who would vote for such a party deserves to have his rights taken from him in Mie way and manner they would be, were it nottpr the vigilance of the Republican party—the p&Of man's unflinching friend.— Republican Jour Attempts to Fire the British .Vary. On Friday, tnc second of October, an at tempt was made by an incendiary to fire the British ship of war, Campcrdown, laying in the basin at the Sheerness dock-yard. The fire was discovered in a midshipman's berth and extinguished, but a well laid train .vas discovered in the warrant-officers' store room, consisting of rosin, oakum and lucifer matches. At Plymouth, cn Saturday, the 27th of September, at three o'clock in the morning, a fire, supposed to have been kindled by an in cendiary, broke out in tho dock-yard close tp the docks in which were lying the Talavera 74, Minden 74, and Imogene frigate. Not withstanding the utmost exertions, the fire communicated to these ships, and the Talave ra and Imogene were both totally destroyed. The Minden caught several times, and has sus tained serious damage, hut the fire was ex tinguished on board that ship. A gallery was destroyed containing a splen did collection of trophies and memorials of British naval tiiumphs comprising the figure head, masts, &c. ot the most celebrated inen of war, and, above all, the flag of Lord Nel son,—that beneath which he fought, conquer ed and'died. The loss is estimated at .£200,000. The fire was stopped at the point where the de struction would have been the greatest. Prop erty to the amount of £5,000,000 was depos ited in the building next to where it progress was terminated. POPULATION OF RUSSIA.—The population of Russia in 1838 was 53,977,200 including the army and navy, the wandering tribes, Poland and Finla-id, the number of inhabitants is 62, 500,000. EMPIRE OF CHINA. The Oriental HeraT8 contains the following curious article upon the empire of China "The empire of China is divided into 20 provinces there are one hundred and eighty five capitals, and as many cities of the second order. The taxes and duties amount annually to thirteen millions and a quarter sterling— one million nine hundred and eighteen thou sand tons of wheat and rice must be deducted for the subsistence of the troops and the sup ply cf the public granaries. The civil service ccsts but one and a half millions sterling per annum, but the military service is six times as expensive, and amounts to more than eight millions. Among the articles of the Chinese budget, we find eight millions for tho mainte nance of the Yellow River, two millions for the gardens Yuen-Ming, and corsiderable sums for the entertainment of the Ministers of State of the first and second class, to the num ber of three thousand five hundred and twen ty-five. Tho revenue of the nation in silver and in products, is valued at thirty millions sterling. The duties levied on English and American ships entering at Canton, adds about another million to that sum. The rev enue of England, which possesses but twen ty-two millions of population, amounted in 1824 to one third more than that of the Chi nese Empire, which, according to late enume rations, contains no less than one hundred and si My- four millions of inhabitants. The por tion of the population who live upon the water amount to two millions. The persons iu civil employment do not exceed nine thousand five hundred and eleven, and the military officers seven thousand five hundred and sixty-two.— The army consists of an enormous mass of one million two hundred and sixty-three thousand men, of which eight hundrtd and twenty-two thousand belong to the infantry, four hundred and ten thousand to the cavalry, awl tUrty thousand to the marine." FLORIDA WAR. It appears, by a statement of the St. Augus tine Herald of the 3d inst., that the war in Florida is about to be prosecuted with unusual vi*' r. The Herald says: We are happy to announce that the Secreta ry of War has requested the Navy Depart ment to ordt:r the commander of the W'esi In dia Squadron to provide for the protection of Key est and the Florida Keys generally. And also to send out boat expeditions into the bays and inlets of the coast, to cut off auy parties of Indians who may be hovering about the shores. Vessels will be kept upon the coast to cut off any chances of communication, by which supplies may be furnished them from abroad. Two entire and fresh regiments of United States troops are already ordered to Florida. The Governor is authorized to raise 200 horsemen in addition to those alreadv in the ,**2 •9* If*- IT* W*^«. *"-£,«flSf» gross delu sion—a dream of a visionary—a system which has done more to corrupt the morals of society than any thing else which has introduced a struggle for wealth, instead of that honorable struggle which governs the actions of a pat riot,"and makes ambition virtue which has made the husbandman sptwn his cottage, and introduced a system at variance with the sim plicity of our institutions. If this be true— and 1 appeal to the knowledge of all men for its truth—I demand to know if you can put down the system too soon? Can we too soon escape thedaflger with which we are surround ed?

FROM FLORIDA.—We copy from the Apa lachicola Advertiser of the 23th alt., the fol lowing paragraph. It has long been suspect ed that there were villainous white men con nected with the Indian operations in Florida, and this seems to be the first clue to their dis covery: There is a rumor here, for the truth of which we do not vouch, that two or three, or one or two white persons have been arrested atTalla hasse, on suspicion of being connected with ihe Indians. The name of one is Johnson Cook, a man well known to many of our, citi zens, who was endeavoring to purchase a keg of powder. This man£esided with the In dians previous to the J&mmencement of hos tilities, and is supplied to have been wfth litem ever sitftter Hil^peaks Indian fluently, and adopted their mode of life from choice.— When taken, he is eeid to have displayed in dications of having: been recently' painted af the manner of the savages. We hope this is true, and if so, that every inducement wili be held out, to elicit information concerning the lurging places of the enemy. THE YANKEES IN COMMAND? OF THE CHINESE NAVY. LIVERPOOL, SEPT. 4.—In a recent Calcutta paper we find the following extract from a let ter from Manilla, descriptive of "Old Lin's maratime armaments and the alleged confede racy of ihe Americans with Chinese. A Yan kee Celestial navy will be a formidable affair) "Old Lin's going on as usual the English vessels that he bought up some time ago have been turned into men-of-war they are to be manned partly by Chinese and partly Yankee*! Three American captains have accepted the command at Sp. Ds. 1000 a month, and one fifth of the prize money. The American mer chants are indignant at this, and the American Vice Consul has sent in a remonstrance. How ever, the renegade Yankees have sent in an answer to the effect,that one consideration alone will induce them to give up so favorable com mand." The writer also describes the present condition of Manilla, and the lamentable dis tress of its inhabitants. "The Matiiila go vernment," he observes, have in coi sidera tion of a favorable treaty of commerce with the Chinese, shut the port against the importation of opium. The rice crop again is a total fail ure, and the lower orders iu very great distress several cases of robbery and murder had oc curred there during the course of a very short time." We understand that Df. A "O son, who resides a few miles below this village, has discovered an extensive bed of fire-clay, suitable for glass, pots, or furna ces. Brick manufactured from this mate rial will be found valuable for our swelling, furnaces on Wisconsin and Iowa. The Doctor made the discovery in opening a coal mine. In his researches he discov ered a valuable bed of Kennel coal, equal in quality to that of English. These val uable discoveries are destined to add much to the prosperity of our section of country and show the necessity of persevering in Geological researches, in order to acquire a thorough knowle.lge of lite inexhaustable resources of the west.—Iowa Sun. WISCONSIN TOBACCO.—The Soutliport Sentinel says: 4,The resources of the west are continually developing new articles of commerce and of domestic use are con* siantly adding to the wealth and means of the country. We arc informed that a num ber of inhabitants on Rock River, whose graneries have been filled lo overflowing for the last two year*, and who have found it inconvenient to dispose of their surplus produce, ha' e resolved to direct their au tention to other means of obtaining profit® from the products of their soil. Accord ingly the experiment of raising tobacco has been tried the past summer, and has been found to succeed beyond expectation. The growtii ol the plants was astonishingly rapid, and they were brought to perfect maturity, and completely ripened, about the middle of August last. Many of the leaves measured three feet in length and twenty in width." MORTALITV AT HEELING, VA-RWE learn from the Wheeling Times that sick ness prevails to an unusual extent in that city, so much so that the paper named says that since the days of the cholera, death has not made such havoc among ine people as the last few days had exhibited. Among those who ur^ fallen are several of the most esti.nable citizens of the place. The character of the disease is not mention ed. PLAXTTNO FRUIT T^EES.—NOW is the season for those who intend to plant out fruit trees to exert themselves. It is much better to do it now than to put it off till spring. Not only it is better f»r trees, as they are thus enabled to establish them selves in their new situation before the about have neglected planting till spring. If some fresh light mould from the woods or road side be put in the hole for the recep tion of the tree, it is thought to act benefi cially in giving the young roots a start.— Western Far. & Ga d. Lis- wHorses.—Mr. John L. Smith, %onnty and who has dealt mnch in horses, informs that he has not had a harse to die with the'bats for twenty years. When it is recollected that every farmer is losing horses time §iW time vHh this disease, we should be dispds*4. pay some attention to Mr. Smith's rem edy for bots, which he assures ua has been so effectual. It consists simply in feeding occasionally on heads of rye, a quantity of which he always keeps on hand for the purpose. He is convinced that the"-hpadi» ind chaff of the rye seem to cut and effectually carry off thegrubs and that if a horse every dair be fed with rye heads, he will never be annoyed with bots. The rye may be fed in sheaf. It operates as a preventative rather than as a cure. We hope soon to hear of its being more generally tried.—Southern Cultivator.

The undersigned proposes, as a future occupation, to publish, semi-monthly, a cheap newspaper, to be called KEN DALL'S EXPOSITOR. Should the Administration bo sustained iu the present conflict, as his faith in the people persuades him to believe, there is still much to 1)3 done to secure the advancement and perpetuity of pure principles in our Government and if perchance it shall be defeated, there will be mow occasion for all honest eti'orts to prevent the mischiefs apprehended from the men who may come into power. To thos? objects the undersigned is determined to devote the remnant of his life and he can think of no means through whi n,ii he can so efficiently, as a news paper cheap enough to be within the reach of every man who is able to read, liaised to labor on a farm, ha has never ceased to cherish the interests of those who work for a living and, knowing ihsm to ba the most virtuous and deserving portion of society, one of the most cherished desires of his heart is to sec them aroused to the importance of giving more of their reading, their thoughts, aud their time to the ali'airs of Government. Yet, not to them exclusively, but also to all other men, who do not seek to obtain, thro' the laws, advantages over their fellow men, he will address himself in the proposed publication. The main objects noticed is this paper wiU be as follows, viz: 1. SuIFrag-? is the basis of free government. He that cheats at election's is guilty ef the worst kind of treason, and should be punished as a traitor. lie who gives utterance to a falsehood, for the purpose of in fluencing a voter, n but little better. To denounce cheating, bribery, and falsehood, when detected, and surest effective preventives, tviil be a leading object of the proposed pajcr. In this the undersigned does not intend to be any respecter of parties ibr the man who resorts to such means far the accomplishment of political ends, whatever he may call himself, is no Democrat, and is an enemy to the people. 2. Abuses of privilege and corruption have made much progress in the legislative department of our Government, and Jiave occasionally shown them selves in other departments. These, as far as known, will be denounced, by whatever party they may be practised. In every abuse of privilege, or undue ex ercise of [xiwer, the individual committing it strikes a blow at public virtue, the only lasting basis of free institutions. 3. The principles of modern banking, and the manner in which banks and publicdebts operate upon •he labor, trade, arid property of the community, are not well understood. One of the chief objects of this paper will IK?, by facts and illustrations, to make these matters ploin tp all who will read and discuss the pro posed remedies for evsting evils. This will involve an exposition of the nature and uses'of money, togeth er with a history of the origin, progress, and effects of paper money in Europe and America. To these will be added a notice of ail new disco veries and inventions which promise to be useful to mankind, as also of facts, experiments, and improve ments ^ich^ may be instructive to the farmer and mechanic a summary of news, foreign and domestic, carefully compiled, constituting an accurate history of passim? events abstracts of important public docu ments, and miscellaneous matter, selected and origi nal, instructive and entertaining. In fine, the object •s to furnish a r^wspapar which will present the far mer, planter, mechanic, merchant, and all other read ers, the true interests of those who live by the culti vation of the soil and other laborious occupations in volving the interests of all useful trade, and incite them always to regard those interests, in voting for public agents to inculcate that honesty and truth -houid be the guide of every man iu public as well private life thit a .sacred regard for the rights of pro perty, as well as personal rights, is essential to the happiness of man in a state of society that it is only through a fair ballot that we should look for the cor rviou of existing e\i!s, and the prevention of those we tear and that a true Democra! should never think of revolution by force until be finds himself deprived of the rights of suffrage, or the voice of the majority is psrseverin^ly tftiilsd by fraud or force at the polls. Though thoroughly Democratic in principle, this paper will not be made the vehicle of ordinary elec tioneering matter, nor will it engage in or admit mere personal controversies. It will not conceal its prefer ences for men or parties but will seek to influence results oidy by appeals to reason, and through th instrumentality of tact and argument. That a true Democrat ought n^ver to drspair, is the first article in the undersigned's political creed. Man is capable of indefinite improvement in know ledge and virtu"1. These are the based of Democracy. If we know that he cannot reich perfection, we know also that he may become better than he is. Hope and fait!) are the motives of the Christian teacher. They should be the stay and stimulus of the Demo crat. With him they are strengthened by knowledge for he sees and knows that man is advancing, and miy be made to advance more rapidly, in all thos? acquirements which enable him to govern himself. If arrested by force or fraud to-day, he will resume his onward march to-morrow. By degrees, the ETC at mass of men ere becoming famiiiar with their rights and conscious of their power they may became so well informed that none will attempt to deceive them, and so determined that none will dare to assail them by force. To aid in the improvement of man is the high'\s* remaining ambition of the undersigned. He has seen much of the world, has had some experi nee in public aifairs, has witnessed much human depravity, suflcrcJ some wrong, and met with much to discourage exertions for the good of bis country and of his race but never for a moment has he lost his faith in raanV high destiny, or relaxed his deter mination to contribute to his advancement under all discouragements, if he shall reap no personal ad vantage from this course, beyond a consciousness of doing his duty, his children, his children's children, aud rryriads of human beiags hereafter to live, may, by his example and labors, however humble and fee ble, be made more intelligcntjand more happy. At any rate, in this glorious hope he intends to labor, live, and di?. Who will aid liim in this undertaking 1 AMOS KENDALL. Washington, Oct. 24, 1840. TERMS OF KENDALL'S EXPOSITOR.
