Seward leaders are oonoerned, rery justly
marks tbe Raleigh Standard. Tbe Whig
party understand tbe policy of a rough and
tumble fight, and in thia canvass, so for. they
have not attempted to place before the people
the substantial merits of their own candidate»
bat depend ontirely upon slandering their op
posing one, aud thereby throwing the Democ
racy upon the defensive. To enumerate all
the falsehoods and frauds would require for
more space than we could furnish, even if we
were to devote oar whole paper to tho work
Tbo Democracy should be on tbeir guard
against these vile slanders. Tbe friends
Scott despairing of his election, will do any
thing and everything to injure the prospects
of Pierce. They seo tlieir foil is inevitable,
and they will, and are attempting to drag
down with them our own gallant candidate.
Freesoilism aud sectionalism can not triumph
yet awhile, and if the Scott party are signally
defeated, the South will, for a time at least,
be permitted to rest in peace.
A Method of Computing Interest.— A
correspondent of the Haiti more Sun
nicates tbe following simple plan for
ting interest at 6 per cent per annum, for any
number of days, which h3 learned, be says,
twelve years ago :
" Divide the number of days by 6, and
multiply the dollars by the dividend, the
suit is the interest in decimal ; cut off the
right-hand figure, sod you have it in dollars
and cents. Thai ; what is the interest on
S100 for 21 days ? Twenty-one divided by
0 is 3 1-2 ; 100 multiplied by 3 1-2 is 350, or
35 cents. Again; whatistheintcreson $378
for 93 days? Ninety-three divided by 6 is
15 1-2; 378 multiplied by 15 1-2 is $5,859,
5 85 9-10. Let book-keepers try this ruie
and they will find that it is no humbug."

Elector has resigned in favor of T. Bibb

JT" The mass meeting at Jacksou, on the
9th iust., was an enthusiastic affair, and was
attended by thousauds. How the Whig pa
pers make it appear that there were only 173
persons at that meeting, is more than we can
understand. The Whig arithmetic must be
somewhat deficient, as they do not seem to
understand simple numbers.

Another Nail in the Coffin of a Base

following note in the Austin Gaxette :
. Austin, October 1, 1852
Eihtors State Gazette : An article in the
New Orleans Delta of the 15th ultimo rsl
ative to an .Heged indignity «pon the perron
ot Gen. Pieroe. by Col Magruder of the U
S. army, at a card table the evening before
tbeir departure from the dty of nMexico and
which was said to have been suffered to pass
unresented by the former, Ac. Ac., bas attract
ed my attention. As I was myself present
on the occasion referred to, and engaged in the
same game of cards, and remember dirtinotly
the altercation whioh took place, and upon
which the story has evidently been founded I
deem it proper, in justice, as well to Col. Ma
gruder as to Gen. Pierce, to state, that not ou
° ffered »<>
the General by Col. M. but no demonstration
or intention, or threat manifoated iu the man
ner, even of the latter. I cannot but think
that Capt. McLaoe haa been misunderstood,
if be ever made any sneb statement as the one
alleged to have come from him.
