Another Revolution in Mexico.

from Vera Cruz, to the effect that Gener

and that Mexico was about being con

Products of Missouri.
The last number of the St. Louis Price
Current states, that the tobacco crop ot
the past season was superior to any ever
produced in Missouri, and that cultiva
tors were well paid for their labor. The
' shipments of lead from the Galena mines
alone, the past year, amounted to 778,000
pigs, being an increase of 156,000 pigs
over the previous year. 1 he wheat crop
of 1845 is represented as having been
remarkably good better both in quantity
and quality than any crop since 1812.
Missouri possesses many natural advan
tages, which, if rightly improved, will
one day cause her to rank amongst the
(irst States of the Union.

Diseases or the Season.
Since the commencement of winter
the weather has been more regular than
it had been in former years, and it there
fore seenis somewhat remarkable that
disease should be so prevalent1 as it is in
various sections of .the country: Within
the last three months the small pox have
raged in some of our principal cities and
towns and in the country, especially in
this county, other diseases have prevailed
to a-considerable extent. In this section
' in town and country manyr have been
, afflicted with- the sore throt, and a
number mostly .children have "died of
. that disease. The presumption is, that,
notwithstanding the regularity of the sea
son, the atmosphere, from some cause or
other, has become noxious, and that dis
eases ere thus en?ndared isd spread erst

The object of the meeting having been
Resolved. That we approve of the
holding of a Whig State Convention at
llarrisburg, on thellth, of next month,
for the purpose of nominating a candi
date for Canal Commissioner.
Resolved, That the public works of
Pennsylvania, owing mainly to their
mismanagement by the Locoibco office
holders, have heretofore been and con
tinue to be a burden upon the tax payers
of the State, and that, if they cannot be
placed in better hands, they ought to be
sold, if responsible purchasers can be
Resolved, That Francis R. Shunk, by
his truckling to the South in his late an
nual message, in regard to the tariff, has
forfeited all claims, if any ever he had, to
the confidence and future support of the
people of Pennsylvania, who are so deep
ly interested in the maintainence of the
Resolved, That "Uregon is ours up
to the Russian Possessions, or to 54 40y
of North latitude, the offer of James K.
Polk and our distinguished fellow citi
zen" James Buchanan,' to comprraise at
the 49'' to the contrary notwithstanding.
Resolved, That we arc in favor of an
amicable settlement of the Oregon ques
tion, if it can be effected without a surren
der of any of our just rights; and while
we can well account for the disposition to
compromise in the conventionsof 1818
and 1827, when less interest was mani
fested in the matter, yet believing now
that our title to the whole of Oregon is
"clear and unqestionable," whsn we re
flect upon the strong and emphatic asser
tion of our right to the whole of it, -made
by the long-to-be-remembered and never-to-be-forgotten
Baltimore Convention of
1844, the re-assertion of the same by
Polk in his Inaugural address, and es
pecially in view of the increased light
thrown upon the subject by the "Great
Nullirier" of the South and "our distin
guished fellow citizen" aforesaid; by
whom our title it 6hown to be incontro
vertible, we are lost in astonishment at
the late ofkr of President Polk to yield
nearly one" half of the territory to the
claims of our ancient enemy Great Bri
Resolved, That should it be necessary
to assert and maintain our right to Ore
gon at the point of the sword, although
they deprecate war as the "greatest of
evils, yet the "Frosty sons of Thunder,"
will not be found among the missing on
the battle field.
Resolved, That although we cannot
expect from the present Congress and
Administration any favorable action in re
card to the public" lands, we still adhere
to the opinion long entertained, that the
proceeds arising from their sale should be
distributed amongst the several States and
Resolved, That the. recommendation of
James -Poik'Tn his fate message' that
duties upon imports should be reduced to
the lowest Doint at which protection com
mences, only confirms us in the unsha
ken belief often heretofore expressed,
that his election by the vote s of northern
Tariff men could only have been effected
by a stupendous swindle. See the Kane
letter, and the Silver Lake and Plaque
mine Ballot boxes.
Resolved, Trrat our Representative in
Congress, Hon. Andrew Stewart, is en
titled to the thanks of every lover of his
country's prosperity, for his clear ' and
forcible exposition of the. anti-American
doctrines of Polk's late- message, and
Walker's Treasury Report, and for his
ever watchful and untiring efforts to save
the present excellent Tariff.
Resolved, That we accord to our op
ponents in the Senate of Pennsylvania i
true Pennsylvania feelinfrs in their late
j - - O
unanimous vote to sustain the Tariff of
1842, but we detest and denounce as trai
tors to the best interests of our State,
those who attempted in the House of Rep-
resentatives to postpone action upon the
Senate Rtsoluiions "untiL-they., should1
i h?ar from England " foreoo.th thus shsme-
lessty admitting that ont legislation should
be shaped and modified in celerence to
British legislation. .. ; j -
Resolved, That in tho language of tne
Senate "Resolutions, "the Tariff of-1342,
produces no more than sufficient revenue
to defray the necessary . expenses of the
general government, and . affords only an
adequate incidental protection to Ameri
can Industry and American Manufactures
against foreign competition and foreign
policy, and a consequent encouragement
to commercial enterprise, to agricultural
pursuits, and to the devclopement of our
own internal resources."
Resolved, That the miserably abortive
attempts ba few members of: the House
to pass resolutions conaemnatory-.ot.tae
Tariff of 1842, is, we tear, but the en
tering wedge of an open systematic op
position "oh the part of the Loco party, to
the protective system, to be hereafter
waged, when it is necessary again to suc
cumb to the South in the choice of a Pre
Resolved, That Col. Edie, our Repre
sentative in the State Legislature, merits
the thanks of the friends of domestic in
dustry, for his late able defence of the
protective policy, in that body.
Resolved, That we have undiminished
confidence in the great talents and integri
ty of the "Gallant Harry Clay" of Ken
tucky, the Philantrophic Frelinghuysen
of New York, and the brave old General
Msrkle of our own state, and while their
defeat is still a source of regret to us, we
can say, in the language of Baker, a noble
whig member of congress from Illinois,
"what may be in future, wc do not pre-
tend to ioresee, Dut o: one xnmg w
certain, we shall abide the fortunes ol the
whig party cheerfully and gladly and that
we would rather be whigs defeated, than
successful modern democrats."
Resolved. That the people, of tliis
Countv are unanimously in favor of gran
ting the right of way to the Baltimore
and Ohio Kail Road Company to pass
from Cumberland to Pittsburg and they
demand it from the present Legislature, as
a right to which this section of country
heretofore burdened with taxation with
out corresponding benefits, is justly enti
tled. Resolved, That Simon Gebhart be our
representative delegate to the 11th of
March Convention at Harrisburg, and
(Westmoreland concurring) that John R.
Edie be the . Senatorial delegate to said
convention, with power to appoint sub
stitutes. Resolved, That the chair appoint a
County Committee of Correspondence
consisting of seven, whose duty it shall
be to issue calls for county meetings, at
such times as they shall think proper;
take measures for a general organization
of the Whig party in the county, and
correspond with similar committees in
other counties. -
The chair appointed the following gon-(
Uemen, to compose the County Commit
tee of Correspondence: -' -George
Mo wry, John L. Snyder,
Moses A. Ross, Michael A. Sanner
John C. Kurtz. Geo. A. Clarke, '
Conrad M. Hicks. . ' -A
After a few appropriate remarks from j
Samuel V? , Pearson and Jost J. btutzman,
Resolved, That the proceedings be
signed by the officers and published in the
Somerset Herald, with the request that
the whig papers in Westmoreland, Fay
ette and Greene counties, and in Harris
burg copy them-.

Correspondence of the Chambers
Harrisbcrg, February 10, 1846.
To the Editor: On Friday last, the
House rejected Mr. Burrcll's Tariff reso
lutions, by a vote of 37 yeas to 57 nays.
The resolutions offered by Mr. Piollet,
of Bradford, received 9 votes." AH a
mendments having thus been negatived,
the resolutions, as they came from the
Senate, instructing our Senators and Rep
resentatives to oppose the repeal of the
Tariff of '42, passed second reading by a
vote of 79 veas to 13 nays. Mr. Piollet
then moved, that the House resolve itself
into a Committee of the whole, for the
purpose of amending, which was agreed
to. A resolution, recommending the re
cstablishment of the SubTreasury, dis
approving of the distribution of the pro
ceeds of the sales of the Public Lands,
and the chartering of a United States
Bank, was appended to the Tariff reso
lutions. The Whigs, having previously
recorded their votes in favor of the Tarifl
of '42, did not vote on the resolutions as
amended, and they passed, finally, yeas
5i, nays 4. The present Tariff act has
a strong hold on the affections of the peo
ple of Pennsylvania, and James K. Polka's
hostility to it has had no other effect than
to bind the Keystone more closely to it.
Mr. Bun-ell is the acknowledged leader
of the Democratic party in the House,
and although he had a large majority of
his political friends on the floor, he could
not carry resolutions which recommen
ded the slightest modification of the Ta
riff of 42. The "union and harmony"
of the Dartv. was ' fully demonstrated on
the evening of the passage of the reso-
. lutions. The merits of the quarrel last
winter, which resulted in the election of
Camevon, was again examined, and some
ehare-cs of a serious nature were made by
i one faction of .the Democracy against the
other. Mr. Bufneide, who is first lieu-
t?cant of ths Dsmomttc l?gion, sustain-
d.ihe - Tariff of 43, and gloried in cal
ling it a Democratic, measure... whilst oth
ers of the same patriotic party, would not
agree to give so unjust and partial a mea
sure ia place. in their political creed.-
In the Ssnate, the Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad bill ' is jJiscussed daily." Mr.
Crjbb has been speaking for two or three
days , in opposition to it, and when the
Senate adjourned yesterday, he appeared
to be about as. near concluding' his re
mark as he was when he commenced.
Othp.. Senators .wish to . express- tneir

of ke bitl is .doubtful; The most unpar-
alcIt&jexertions are bing made by the
irfedelphians and' others : to t defeat it; .
train of cars' from the East ap
pears te bnuff a fresh delegation, of bo
rers, and erery measure is. resorted to m
ortlcr to effect' the object, intended. The
members from the counties' through
which the Railroad by the Juniata route
would pass, exhibit as much zeal in pres
sing their project, and talk as largely of
their claims upon the State, as if they
were really in a suffering & destitute con
dition. Those counties are the ones through
which the main line of Canal and Rail
road passes, and they have reaped the ad
vantage, while other counties of the State
have suffered, and paid an enormous tax
to keep down a debt incurred in the con
struction of works, not only useless, but
a decided injury to them.
