With his youthful hopes and patriotic ambition, ho moved not until he was perlectly well satisfied that we had one army which could cope with the veteran troops of Great Britain. The result was most glorious. His troops met his expectations. Crossing theNiagarn, Fort Erie was taken; the battle of Chippewa followed; the enemy rctreotcd and the Amer icans nursued;untij at last the glorious fight atLundy's Lane showed conclusively that tho gallant Americans werefuperior in every respect to their adversaries.

See to it that not a man is wanted on the day of the elec tion. LET EVERY VOTER BEAT THE POLLS. At the buttle of Lundy's Lane tho British infantry poured their deadly fire into tho Anicricnn ranks, but all to no pur pose. They were at length compelled to retire and abandon the Avid. Tho great coutest is almost upon us. In two weeks time, we will bo called upon, as freemen, to d.cido whether Gen.

If the defeat of the corrupt clique of Locofoco politicians, called the Miami 1 nbc, were the only gratifying result of the late election, tho Whigs ofthe State would have cause for rejoicing.

Letusrejoico over this , triumph as a triumph of principle.." Destruction op ar Old House A Reminiscence. In Norfolk last week, a three story brick houso on Little water street, built in 1804, was destroyed by fire. The Norfolk Herald says: It wa.in this house that a shocking trage dy occurred in 1800. Two gamblers, broth ers, ofthe namo of Davis, rented tho third story for the purpose of keeping it pharo ta ble. One night nn Itulian, whose name we believe wa. Colminl, (Coalminer, as he was commonly called,) visited this establishment and meeting with extraordinary luck, final ly broke tho bank. The Duvisc. and an other of their fratornity charged him with cheating; ho protested his innocence, but it was to no purpose. They attempted to seize him, but ho broko from thorn and fled down a narrow dark stairway, ail three in closo pursuit. On tho- second landing he stcnnoil aside, unporceived, and as each pas sed him on tho right. In the dark, ho gavo him a fatal slab with a stiletto in mo ten side, and pushed him down .the next flight. The two Davises were mortally wounded and died within 24 hours; their companion lingered several weeks and diod also. The Italian escaped. A Bit or Histort Set Right. We find the tho following letter from tho Pres ident, addressed to D. II. Lindsoy, Esq., In the Columbus (Mass.) Argus: Washington Vilti, August 7, 1852. Sir: Your letter of tho 35th ultimo is re ceived. You soy that it ha. been rumored, since the Whig Convention at Baltimore, that I sent a telegraphic dispatch to my fiiends at the Convention "to go for Web ster and save tho party," andj you desire; to know whether this is true. In reply to which I now state that it is not; that I made no telegraphic communication during the sitting ofthe Convention, to any member of it, or to nny other party for it. information. I am your obedient servant, Millard Fillmore. "The Gallant Hero who Saved c.." While Mr. Chandler, the Whig candidate for Governor wa. spoaking the other day at Kalamazoo, Michigan, of that noblo conduct of Gen. Scott in saving tho lives of twenty Irish prisoners, he wa. .dddonly interrupted with " am one of those same men, and prop se three cheers for the gallant old hero who saved us!" Three cheer, were accordingly given for old Chippewa, and three more for the gallant old follow who fought under him. Mr. Chandler had living evidenco of hia statement. The Irishmen had proof of what he represents himself to bo. Tub Difference Between a Wife and a Maid.

Our attention is directed to the following in last week's Eagle: "This is not his first attack upon our fellow-citizen, Col. Medill. Last year, just on the eve of the election, he was charged with drunkenness, and almost every other moral and political sin; and what was its effect! Why, even the Whigs were indignant at the foul aspersion, cast upon one of their most honored citizens; and the Whig township of Hocking hurled back the vilo slander, at the ballot-box, and gave Col. Medill 81 majority, and .welled hi. majority jn this county to 1400." The implication is that we made the charge of Drunkenness against Col. Medill. That is false, but no matter. He ran a few votes ahead of his ticket, by pcr.onollylporsuading a few Whig, to voto for him, and treating every one whose supporthe thought he could gain in that way. That charge will not be denied. If he is satisfied with the Eagle calling it out, we are perfectly .0; and if any more is wanted, we have them on hand. The attack that was made on him by some Temperance men, did notinfluenco one vote cither way. One thing i. certain, no man begged harder for votes or used more efforts to procure them, than did the "honorable" candidate for Lieut. Governor of tho great Statjof Ohio. National Washington Monument. A Contribution from Turkey. The Washing ton Republic contains a letter recently re ceived at tho office of the Monument, ad- dressed to Mr. Whittlesey, by John P, Brown, Esq., the American Dragoman at Constantinople, from which it appears that tho Sultan of Turkey, Abd-al-Mnjid, intends to contributo n block of marble for insertion in the shaft of the National Monument, in token of his admiration ofthe character and respect for the memory of the Father of our country. It seems that when the lato Turk ish agent, Amin Bey, was in Boston, Mr Winthrop presented him with a copy of his address, delivered on the occasion of laying the corner-stone ofthe monument, nnd that the Sultan having read it, and be!n struck with admiration and respect for the charac ter of Washington, has determined to con tribute a block of marble to hi. monument Mr. Brown, in communicating the fact, says: This marble i. from Byzantium, the most ancient of republics, and from the city of Constant ine, as an ottering trom tnesucccs sor of the Mahomedan caliphs and the Otto man sultans-from the most illustrious sove reign of the race of eastern princes, illustri ous both for the great nobleness and magna' nimity of hi. character, ond for the exertion, which he is making to promote the prosperi ty or his country and his subjects; it win, 1 am confident, give satisfaction to the Amer ican people. It will contain the cypher of tho Sultan, ond a proper inscription, and be sent to your care for the association. Cheap Prepay Postage Rates. Under the Cheap Postage Law now in operation, the Daily and .Weekly Gazettes circulate through the mails at the following low rates the postage to be paid quarterly or yearly, either ot the office of mailing or delivery, in advance'. Daily Gazette quarter of a cent a copy in tho State of Ohio, or 19j cent, per quar ter. At half a cent a copy for the rest of the Union, or 39 cents per quarter.

"You are instructed not to enlist foreign er., for the battalion of St. Patrucia has taught u. that foreigner, can oot be trust ed. General Scott's instruction, to hi. re cruiting officers, during the Mexican war." This is infamous, scandaldtis. It ia a base falsehood and nothing but a falsehood. It such an order wa. issued, it was done at the AdjutantGeneral'aoffice at Washington and approved by Polk and Marcy. Gen. Scott, while iu Mexico,gave no Instructions. Read the following from the Washington ftyuV lic: I heir vou will deny it, in mu name, as ut terly and unqualifiedly false. I waa one of Gen. Scott', aid-de-campa during the Mex ican war, and have continued in that capac ity to thi. time. The only instructions giv en by Gen Scott to recruiting officers, were to report to certain officers in the United State, viz: tienerai urooKe ai iiew unm and the Adjutant General of the Army at Washinirton. D. C. &C&.C All other in- airiirtinns to the recruiting officers were is sued from the office of the Adjutant Uenerai at Washington; and, on Inquiry there, I am authorized to state that no such instruction. ! were issued from that office. If any instructions were, however, issued from the Adjutant General', office.it could only havo been done with the sanction of President Polk or Mr. Secretary of War Marcy, under which Adjutant General Jones issued orders during the absence of General Scott in Mexico. . The utter folly of so doing, in timoof war especially, is sufficient to Btamp this, pur porting to be an extract from Gen. Scott', in structions, as a Dase lorgiry. 1 reiu-raic the statement isu'erfy false. Very respectrully, your oo t serv i, SCHUYLER HAMILTON. Captain by Brevet, United States Army. To such base, scandalous and contempti ble means do these miserable demagogues descend, to deceive naturalized voters. From Col. Medill down to his contemptible tools, who scribble for the t.agle, all such base falsehoods emanate, and nothing is too low for tiiem to engage in, if they suppose that, by it, they can keep the ear. of the naturalized citizens closed against any ar gument, that they may have addressed to their judgments by member, of the Whig party. But Gen.

Will you render us this assistance! The day on which you must decido is drawing nigh. You have your choice to voto either for Gen.

These ore tho two camiidates, and one or the other must be elected; and we feel confident that you will not vote for the ovowed friend of your op pressors.

Hmtt is not a much stronger candidate in Pennsylvania than ever General Taylor was, and tho apparent present increase in the vote for Judge and Canal Commi.sioner in that State is no evidence ot party strength there, as it will be seen in many counties where the Judge and Canal Com missioner have majorities varying from 300 to 600, the Whig candidates for members of the Legislature and County oflber. have been elected.

Cooke, Esq-1 alluded to several matter, of deep interest. During his remarks, he paid a high tribute to Msjor Camp of that city, who stood by his side upoo the quarter deck ofthe boat from which they landed to make the attack upon Fort Erie. Gen. Scott added that he had to swim for his life, and had not Major Camp picked him tip, that would have ended hia little history. Hi. remark, relative to the Mexican Churchea and the offer made him by citizen, of Mexi co to assume the reign, of Government, we give in full: My honorable friend who ha. addressed you in such eloquent term. a. almost to de ter me from attempting to speak, has refer red to some scenes that occurred in Mexico, to one or two of which I beg leave to avert. He ha. spoken of the protection extended to the churches, he might have added to the persons and property of all. I had the warm thanks of the 'Archbishop of that country for the protection given to' the church and also those of his people; I had hi. affection, his thanks, and his blessing. He wa. an aged man, then cighty-flve year, of age, and is now gone to In. long home. I spoke to him about the pictures with which the churches were ornamented; they were copies and originals by the first masters of Spain; the lormer couia not De uiBLiiiguisntru ujr a tun- noi.senr from the originals. He supposed that I had a fancy for some of them, and I must soy I had a lurking wish to bring some home, for public buildings not for private rse. I intimated such purpose, and he said if I chose to select fiteen ortwenty he would assist me in selecting duplicates, one of which might be retained for Mexico. I went home ond thought of the matter. "If I take these pictures for churches at home," thot' I, "it would be like taking irom reierio pay Paul." If I take twenty, why notother offi cers take pictures in proportion! 1 came to the conclusion not to take one: nor was there a picture I am confident, taken by any A merican officer or American soldier. They were all left as we fouud them untouched and undamaged. Applause. One word more about myself, my friends. My friend has adverted to the;propositionsecn floating about in the public papers I have nb where seen it correctly stated that an offer was made to remain in that country and e-overn it. The impression which gen erally prevoils that tho proposition emanated from Congress, is. nn erroneous one the overture, were made me by private citizen. men of wealth and prominence. During our atay in Mexico and other cities, a sys tern of government and police was estab lished, which, as the inhabitants themselves confessed, gave security for the first time, perfect and absolute security, to persons and property. About two-fifthsof all the branch es of government, including nearly a major ity 01 tne memoers 01 vonj;r?s mm hid i- ecutive, were quite desirous of having that country annexed to ours. They knew mat unon the ratification ofthe treaty of peace, nineteen out ot twenty 01 tne persons oe- bnains to the American Army would .tana disbanded, and would be absolutely free from all obligations to lemain in the army anoth er moment. It was entirely truo of all the new regiments called regulars and eiirjit out often ofthe rank and tile ot the old regi ments. After the war waS over, the govern ment overwhelmed u. with reinforcements after there was no possibility of fighting a nother battle. When the wor commenced we had but one-fourth the force which we needed. The Mexicans know that the men in my army would be entitled to their dis charge. They supposed, if they could ob tain my services. I would retain these twelve or fifteen thousand men and that I could ensily obtain ona hundred thousand more from home. Tho h"po was, that it would immediately causa annexation. They of fered me one mflli'n of dollars, as a bonus, with a salary of fjL'50,000 per anmtm; ond five responsible individuals ofl'ored to become security in ony bank in New York, which I might nome. It would be so arranged that I might get it in five days. They expected that annexation would be brought about in a few years; or if not, that I could organize the finances and straighten the complex af fairs ot that government. It was understood that nearly a majority of Congrers was in favor of annexation, and that it was only necessary to publish t prorunciamentolo that effect to secure the object. Wo possessed all the army of that country and occupied every fortress; wo had their cannon found ries and powder manufactories had posses sion of their ports of entry, ond might easily have held them in our possession, if this ar rangement had gono into effect. A publish ed pronunciamento would have brought Congress right over to us, nnd with these fifteen thousand Americans holding the for tresses ofthe country, all Mexico would not have disturbed us. We might have been there to this day if it hod been necessary. But gentlemen I loved iny distant home, ira.1 not in favor of the annexation of Mex ico to my wen country! Mexico has about eight millions of inhobitans, and out of these eight millions, there are not more than one million who are of the pure European blood. The Indians and a mixed race constitute a bout. seven millions; they aro exceedingly inferior to our own. Asa lover of my coun try, I was opposed to mixing up that race with our own. This was tho first objection on my part, to that proposition. May I not plead some little love of home, which give me the preference for the soil of my own country and its institutions? I came back to die un der theso institutions, and here I am. Ohio Election. We have the unofficial report, of some sixty-five counties, and the Journal has the entire vote of about 20 coun ties. The result shown that about 60,000 voters in tho State did not attend the polls. This must not be the case on the 2d of No vember, and we appeal with confidence to tho whlgs of Fairfield to do their duty. We know they will not falter when they aro a ware that a full vote will give Ohio to Gen. Scott . j Native American, against Soott. Lewi. C. Levin, the leader of the Native Americans in Philadelphia, is very strongly opposed to Generol Scott, and declares ho will defeat him if possible. He ha. pledged the whole Native American vote against Scott, and will take the stump himself for Pierce and King, a. soon a. the State elec tion i. over. ftrThe State Election having passed, let let every friend of Scott and Graham press forward to the great contest on the second day of November.

Cholera in Wheeling. A geptleman in Zanesville inform, the Courier that he has received a letter from Wheeling, which states that several death, from cholera have occurred in that city within the last few days. OirThe Cincinnati Citizen a Catholic Democratic paper ha hauled down the Pierce and King flag and will hereafter be neutral. . , . . ..... , "Haul Down Tout Scott Fiao." So say the poster, for the Locofoco meeting; so say the Locofoco pres. of thi. city. We yi NO, NEVER! Scott never permitted the flag of our country to be hauled down by uritish or Mexican hands, and the friends of that great hero and good man will never be so base as to permit the flag bearing hi. name to be hauled down by the "PRACTI CAL, ALLIES" of Great Britain in this country. It would be Ingratitude not de served by anyone act in hia long and event- 1 -1 vnrccr. "Haul Dcvn your Scott Flag!" Men'who can cheer over an ill-timed allusion to the surrender of three hundred gallant Ameri cans to four times their force of British and Indian, at Queenstown Heights, may raise that cry and labor to do the deed; but the gallant and patriotic American citizen who is proud that he can claim Winfield Scott as one of hi. countrymen, will NEVER per mit the lustre of his great name to be dim med by such an act as that. n... Haul down your Seolt Flag!" And whyt That the flog or the "practical alliea" of Great Britain may be reared in its stead! Such a deed may be worthy of men who are "held together by the cohesive power of public plunder;" but the base order will be spurned with .corn by men who have seen recorded on the bright page, of their coun try's history, the gallant and heroic service, of Winfield Scott; whose heart, have .wel led with grateful emotion for hi. great sac rifices for the public good, and whose patri otism ha. been re-invigorated by the record of hi. forty yearj of faithful and untiring'de- votion in the service ol hi. country. "Haul down your Scott Flag!" The hand that penned the order would tremble at the .lightest danger that Winfield Scott has witnessed in his country's service; the heart that conceived it, would cower, though only Gen. Pierce should bid him charge the chap. pare); and the intellect that permitted the record of such a sentence, is cold and cal lous to all the bright deeds of men whose patriotism ha. nerved them in their labors to make the name of tho country which they love, illustrious. "Haul down your Scott Flag!" Do you hear the taunt, FREEMEN OF OHIO? And will any one of you remain at your home after that, and by neglect permit the deed to be done? It wos the gallant Scott who did more than any other man to wipe away the disgrace of Hull's surrender; it was him, who hauled down the British Flag at .Fort George and made Britain's veteran troop, fly before the armie. of our country at Chip pewa and Lundy's Lane; it wa. him, who led the gallant troops of America to victory and honor from Vera Cruz to the Hall, of the Montezumas; and more than that, it wa him, who in the hour when pestilence struck downhi8 soldier, by scores nnd hundreds, 11 1 .

We might go on and add column after column of what he ha done for hi. country and for you a clti.cn of that coun try; but you know his history, you have read of his services, you aro satisfied with his pa triotism, and we call upon you, with all the earnestness of which we are cnpable.to rally around that glorious standard, bear it aloft in the thickest of the fight, and defend it with all the power with which you have been gifted. Do this, now, until the contest is over, and that flag will float proudly to the breeze with "SCOTT, GRAHAM and VIC TORY" inscribed upon its beautiful folds, and you can say with a full consciousness of Truth and Gratitude, "I HAVE DONE MY DUTY." "The Columbian," A few year, .(nee we received a paper from Pike county, Illi nois, published by T. J. McElroy, brother of the Rev. John McElroy, of thi. city. He disposed of that establishment and soon af ter sprung up in Oregon City, Oregon Ter ritory, where ho published the "Spectator." Remaining but a short time there, we lost sight of him for a few weeks, until a day or two since, we received the first number of a new paper, called the "Columbian," pub lished away up at Olympia, Puget'a Sound, byj. W. Wiley and T.J. McElroy, Ha always manage to poblish a readable and excellent paper, and tho number before u. is worthy of an older and more densely popu lated country. We wish the proprietor much success. They think Northern Ore gon is equal to the Valley ofthe Willamette or Umpqua, and when its rich resources are sounded abroad by aid of the press, that it will prove equally inviting to those desiring homes upon the shores of the Pacific' "The Columbian" will prove a valaahre auxiliary to the cause ofi'mprovement in that portion of Oregon lying North of tne Columbia.
