To the exclusion of much other maiter, we lay before our readers ihe spee'eh of the Hon. An drew Stewart, which should be read by eve ry citizen who has a vote at ihe uext Presiden tial Election. ls facts exhibiting the past of ficial conduct of General Cass, iis exposition of his inconsistencies upon matters of civil poli cy, and its unanswerable argument against Lo cofoco measures and policy in general, cannot fail lo fchow every honest unprejudiced mind, the inexpediency of elecjing Mr. Cass to fill the Chair of a Washington. Head the Speech. ! Cf3 The Locbfoco press is pluming itself upon thetl'act that:Gen. Cass, at the eleventh hour, bore testimony to the courage and skill of Gen. Harri son. If Gen. Cass boie true testimony in the case referred to, what infamous libellers our oppo nents must have been in 1840, when they almost unanimously joined in the cry that Granny Harri son had never been within' nine mil6s of a battle ! What becomes of Petticoat Allen, and his cow ard fabrication, if the testimony of Cass in fa vor of Harrison is to telied upon 1 It is scarcely worth worth while to " pause for an answer" to the above question. Somerset Whig. Francis P. Blair, Esq., the editor of ihe Globe, and the legatee of Gen. Jackson's po lnicul papers, opposes ihe nominee of the Baltimore Convention. This truly conies nn dT the head of defection in high places. Cass the Monopolist. Laborers and Poor men ! How do you like the idea of voting for a LAND MONOPO LY SI', as Lewis Cass is now shown to" be. When Secretary of War he took -advantage of his office to SPECULATE in the PUBLIC LANDS to pick out all ihe lest of ihem, and leave the worst for the POOR EMIGRANT unless hb could afford lo pay him three, four and Jibe times the governmentprices for them. This is the way he accumulated his boasted fortune of a million and a half of dollars. Vo ters ; renumber fBel jand Speculator and Extra-pay Cass, at ihe polls.--77t? Bomb-Shell. If General Cass, at Hull's surrefider.' broke his sword, we apprehend, that at the great Lo- cofoco surrender in November he will jump out of his window and break his neck. Louisvillt Journal. It is now twenty-five years ago that I sat all night in a canoe at the head of a pond at Chi cago. Speech of GcH. Cass. The General now deserves to sit ail day, in mosquito time, on a steamboat, fast upon one of ihe Western sand-bars, which he thinks it un constitutional to temoxe. Louisville Journal. Daguerreotype Portraits. Mr.. Be La Montanyes of New Yorkj is now in Stroudsburg, and will remain for a few days for the purpose fof taking miniatures by the Da guerreotype process. Wes have examined several likenesses taken by Mr. M., and we do not hesi tate in saying' that they are superior to any ever taken in this place; and persons wishing to trans jnit their physiognomy to posterity, just as it is, should not leave the present opportunity pass by. There is is'no mistake about the Daguerreotype, we have seen it tried. If any one wishes to sat isfy himself in this matter, let him call on Mr. M , jiow at the Court House, who will be happy to at tend to all requests of this nature. Gen. Cass's presnt position may be very well illustrated by an anecdote told by an old ladv whose horse ran away with her. In rela ting her sensation, she said she felt very much' alarmed while dashing over hills and through valleys, "but she put her trust in J'rpvidetice till the britchin broke, and then she didn't know what to do." Gen. Cass was quiet sure of his election, and put his trust in Providence until he heard that General Taylor was nominated, and then he gave up in despair. That nomi nation "broke the britchin" Abany Journal. The Cambersburg Whig says : "The Ad ministration folks are .peculiar in their tastes. In 1840, we gave them a General who had whipped the "red coats,"' but they called him granny. In 1S48, they bring forwaad a Gen-, eral who has surrendered to the "red coals," and they pronounce him a hero." Martin Van Buren has written a letter to a Committee of the Industrial Convention which asembled in Philadelphia, in which he takes ground for the freedom of. the public lands to actual settlers, and gives his reasons for acqui escing in his nomination for the Presidency by the Utica Convention. Deserters from rhe Cass ranks are quite nu merous. In Lancaster county, Pa., there are several hohdred mentioned by the Examiner, and in Berks and M o'nt grim ore ry counties the feeling among the derrVqcrats against the Cass ticket is reported by- the paper's 6f t'rroseNregio'ns to be very extensive. The wofne'n of Seneca Falls had a conven tion at which they put forth a " declaration of independence'' asserting that men and Women' w ere created equal. This being leap' year, the. women have a peffeci fight to make "de clarations" of any descriptions: without impu nity.
