The following secret sircular.says the ßee, lias been prepared in Washington by the leading Locofocos there,, and distri buted to the "faithful." Fas est ab hoste doceri. The enemy is at work, with all the eaormous aids derived from the pa tronage of the Government, the possession of power, the dread of losing office, and the heavy contributions of those who sub sist upon Government pap. No effort will be spared to accomplish the defeat of Taylor and Fillmore; and we have al ready had evidence of the desperate strug gle at hand, in the malignity of the ra vings of the Locofoco press, and the in dustry with which the foulest and filthiest libels on our candidates have lieen strown, broad-cast, all over the State.— We sny then, to the Whigs, "lose not a moment by useless delay, but organize at once, actively and efficiently. You have every element of success that a glo rions cause and unimpeachable cham pions can command. Victory is certain, if you will but stfive to win it, but success is rarely the result of accident. In the political world, as in the world of labor, he who strives with most zeal, ptitience and courage, arrives the soonest at the goal." Therefore, friends of Old Zacli, let us begin the good work without further procrastination. Organize ! Organize ' ! ORGANIZE ! ! ! GENERAL CIRCULAR. Washinoton City , June 24, 1848, Sir :—The Undersigned were designat ed by the National Democratic Commit tee at the Baltimore Convention to serve as an Executive Committee at Washing ton, to aid by such means as may be with in their reach the efforts of their friends in other parts of the Uuion in the pend ing Presidential canvass. From the information already received in this city, it is certain (that the leaders of the Federal or Whig party will resort to an extensive system of misrepresenta tion, adapted, in its details, to every sec tion in the Union, which they will render more effective and mischievous by a tho rough organization. To counteract these designs and movements, it is incum bent upon the Democratic party to be equally as well organized, active, vigilant energetic. Our friends should at once make a thorough organization in every State, County and District in the Union. It should be so complete and perfect as to reach every individual member of the party. » This being done, measures should at once be taken to supply all voters with documents, containing important infor mation upon subjects which will be in volved in the present canvass. Valuable compilations will be made setting forth the true issue* of the contest, and other wise from time to time be prepared as the canvass progresses to refute the misrepre sentations and sophistries of our oppo nents, and to sustain the principles and policy of the Democratic party. These complaints will be printed and furnished at prices just sufficient to cover the cost, (say at the rate of 50 cents per 100 copies,) and forwarded, franked, and directed to any part of the Union. We would therefore respectfully sug gest the expediency of forming clubs, for the purpose of disseminating political in telligence among the people. Money in tended for that purpose should be trans mitted, post-paid, to Major B. B. French, Treasurer of this city, which shall be faithfully applied according to directions. The Whigs have nominated their can dinates without the avowal of any princi pies, it becomes important to detect and expose false issues, intended to operate upon different sections of the Union. We should therefore be glad to be speedily informed of the grounds on which our op ponents wage the contest in every section of the country. Should the Whigs of the North fraternize with the abolitionists, this part should be exposed at the South, togprevent them reporting to the people that they are the only safeguards of her peculiar interests. Letters and papers showing the pro gress of the cauvass, and exposing the course ofthe Whigs in different sections of the Union, should be directed to Henry S. Foote, at Washington, who is entitled to receive them free. Also, names of persons to whom documents should be sent. Relying on your faithful co-operation, in our common cause. We have the honor to be, very respectfully, \ nurobedien t servants. H. Ö. FOOTE, EDMUND BURKE, W. J. BROWN. [From the Albany Evening Journal.] Gen. f ass' Retreat from Aux Canards Bridge. " He was ordered peremptorily by the commanding General (Hull) to retire with his command to Detroit."— Albany Ar gus. "Gen, Hull, instead of responding to the ardor of the troops under Col. Cass, near that hateful repository, (Maiden,) ordered that officer and his command back to camp.' 1 ''—Argus biography of Cass. "Gen. Cass was peremptorily ordered by Hull, his superior officer, to retreat from Maiden, and march the troops back to Detroit ; and he was obliged to obey, however much it was against his in clination."— Syracuse Democrat. The first paragraph above quoted, was in reply to an article which we published on the 11th inst., and particularly to the following portion of it 1 : "While the American army was station ed at Windsor, (Sandwich,j Gen. Cass, accompanied by Col. Miller, was permit ted by Gen. Hull, to make a reconnais sance toward Fort Maiden. In approach ing the Canards river, a party of British troops was observed on the bridge.— These were fired upon, and speedily re treated in confusion. Instead of pursuing them , Gen. Cass bivouacked on the bridge, and sent a messenger to Gen. Hull, ask ing him what he should do? Gen. Hull replied that, he could remain or return, just as he pleased—he would assume no responsibility in the matter. Gen. Cass returned : although, as his biographers admit, if he had followed up his advan tage, Fort Maiden would have 'fallen at once.' " It was not until yesterday that we were able to lay our hands upon a work with which we were familiar, (Forbes' Report of the Srial of Gen. Hull) and which eon tains the following justification of our statement, and refutation of the denial of the Argus, and the assertion of Cass' Biographer : Sandwich , 17th July, 1812. Sir —I have received your letter of this morning. To my astonishment, I have not received the least information from M'Arther. It is possible something un pleasant has taken place. It will proba bably be a week bçfore the cannon will be mounted. I am sensible ofthe advan tage of holding the bridge. I would not however hazard too much for the pur pose. The enemy may pass the ford above and come in the rear. I will, how ever, leave to your discretion and Col. Miller's under all the circumstances of the case, to do that which you judge most expedient. Twelve miles are a great dis tance—and the enemy can either land in boats, above the mouth of river, or pass at the ford to attack you. You know the ground better than 1 do, and as I before observed, I will leave the measure and the force to your discretion and Col. Miller's and the best mode of security to the party. I am very respectfully, your ob't servant, W. HULL, Brig. Gen. Commander. Col. Cass. It is unnecessary to add a word to this letter, which we quote to show how little confidence can be placed in the state ments of Gep. Cass' Biographers and Eulogists. ft/^To be victorious we must be sleep less in our energies. A Word to the Whigs. " These are times to be met, not followed!" We request all whigs who are iuert in the cause of Taylor and their country, to ponder upon the following admonitions, so energetically given in the New Orleans Evening National : " The struggle has commenced- Our opponents are moving Heaven and earth to carry the election—everything that mo ney profusely, lavishly expended, can ef fect is being done. Principles, men, truth, honor, justice, and our country are cast aside, and all the untiring energies ofthe most indomitable and best organ ised combination of men the world ever saw, are brought to bear in this contest, —if, by such means Taylor can be de feated, then will Lewis Cass or Martin Van Buren be elected next President of the United States. Have we any thing to contend for? Have we principle*, upon the establishment of which we be lieve the happiness, honor and prosperity of the country depend? Are these prin-1 ciples woirth contending for ? If ?hey worth anything, and the whig party is sincere in its professions of these princi ples, then is it their duty as men, as whigs, as patriots, to go to work ! We ccnnot triumph without an effort, n strong and vigorous effort. We have truth and right upon our side—truth, right and the interests of the country with which to meet the double dealing, specious argumenta and unblushing misrepresen tations of locofocoism. if these consti tuted the only weapons with which the foe would fight us, then we might hope to win an easy victory. It is openly boast ed by the most distinguished locofoco in Louisiana that, this State shall vote for Louis Cass if it takes half a million of dollars' to secure that result. What do they propose to do with that enormous sum ? Print and circulate documents ? By no means. One-tenth, or one-twen tieth of that amount would literaJly flood the State with documents, and less than one-tenth of half a mil lion has already sown broadcast over Louisiana, thou sands and tens of thousand of speeches, letters, lives, adresses and every other form and character of print and argument that mouey, ingenuity and a desperate cause could procure or devise- These papers, thus thrown among the people, with the most judicious care and system, that no antidote may ever reach the poi son, are from beginning to end, tissues of the most unblushing falsehoods, atffl slanderous charges against Taylor and Fillmore, and the whole w!«ig party What then they propose to do with so large a sum of money? Look to the scenes enacted at Plaqueminejin 1844 for an answer. But shall all the error and falsehood so widely published by our opponents throughout the State all pass uncorrected? There is no perpetual motion—no inhe rent quality in the whig party, that it can move of its own accord, and, unaided by its friends, meet the forious and desperate assaults of its foes. It will not do for whigs to lay the flattering unction to their souls that this struggle will win itself.— Unless we act while action may serve our ends, we will be doomed in Louisiana to the most inglorious defeat that ever tar nished the lustre of our arms. We have fin abiding and unshaken confidence in our strength, o<tr principles and our men. Shallwe, by overweaning confidence, make our veiy strength our weakness, and ihe element of self-destruction ? Shall we sacrifice our principles and the inter ests of the country to our inactivity? Every whig will answer No ! —and loco foco office-holders will find in November next that their half a million has been spent in vain. The Battle of Aux Canards. At the commencement of the last wgr, when Col. Cass was with Gov. Hull, in or neai* Canada, he went out one day with a few men and saw a squad of British sol diers at a bridge called Aux Canards.— When Cass's men got within gunshot they fired upon the British, who fired back again and ran. Cass had two men slightly wounded. Such at least was his own official account of the affair which has been hunted up and published in all the Locofoco papers in the country.— The skirmish is now called "the battle of Aux Canards." Wo do not suppose there is a man in the United States who remembers ever to have heard of "the battle of Aux Canards" before the late nomination of Gen. Cass for the Presi dency. All the historians of the late war with Great Britain though exceedingly minute in their details, are silent in regard to it, and there is no probability that any man of the present generation would ever have heard of it if Cass himself had not hunted up his old report and got it pub lished a few weeks ago in his Detroit organ. And now we do suppose our readers will hardly be able to keep from laugh ing when we inform them that the Loco foco editors, East, West, North and South, nre actually dwelling upon what they call "thfc battle of Aux Canards" as one ofthe most brilliant events in our country's history. One of these editors, in his glorification of it, uses an old wood-cut of the battle of Bunker Hill to illustrate th t sanguinary scene, and des cribes it as if he were writing about the field of Austerlitz or Waterloo. If you would believe the locofoco editors, Mon are|terey. Buena Vista, Cerro Gordo, Cha pultepec, and Molino del Rey all dwindle into utter insignificance in comparison with the terrible "battle of Aux Canards." We are grieved however, that a Mr. Stewart, one of the Indiana Locofoco Senators, was a litte unfortunate the oth er day in an attempt to describe this me morable right. After glorifying the mili tary character of Cass over that of Gen. Taylor, Gen. Sc ;tt, and every body else, he eloquently exclaimed : "Who of us, fellow-citizens, what man or woman or child, is not familiar with the name and the glories of the immortal battle field of—of—of—" but the discomfited orator could not for the life of him think ofthe name of the battle-field with which every "man, woman and child" was supposed to be to "familiar;" and, as no man, wo« man or child present seemed able to come to his relief, he had to sit down, leaving the name of the terrible battle-field un spoken,— Louisville Journal.
