the advance of the crmy under General
Worth would set out fur Monterey about
the 1st September. But this is deemed a
matter of much uncertainty, a3 the whole

the rains and rendered quite impassable

Taylor ha? encountered from this cause
are said to be very great and quite in

-witnesses. It has not been without the
most unremitting perse vers nee, toil, and
exposure that he has been able to reach

4,000, ere still fortifying at Monterey,
hut witiwut the slightest expectation of
Ttttemntirvj to defend the place. In fact,
vhilc the army is carrying the appearance
of defensive measures, the people are said
to be preparing to give a friendly recep

al hostility and implacable prejudice which
the Mexicans have long been taught to
feel toward Americans, r.re said to be giv
ing way under the prudent policy and
management of Gen. Taylor. .They
have been constantly treated with consid
eration and kindness; they have received
a full equivalent in money for all they
have had to sell; they have been able to
purchase the necessaries and luxuries of
life at one-half, one-third, or even some
times one-fourth the price they had to
pay under the enormous duties of their
own Government; they have been sub
ject to none of the contributions so often
levied upon them by their own Generals;
they have found a ready and profitable
market for every thing they had, horses,
hogs, catib, sheep; their laborers have
found employment end good wages; those
who have before spent their lives in the
nbject condition -of slaves, subject to the
orders of their perpetual creditor and
master, have suddenly become emancipa
ted, and have accumulated money by their
industry to an amount w hich they had
before never dreamed of. Some Ranche
ros have been named to us who have ac
quired 6100 to 5-500 per week, by fur-nii-hinjr
teams for the use of the army.
In fact, our army furnishes a market to
the Mexicans, far and near; and hence the
larger portion cf the population, and es
pjci dly the more intelligent, are said to
be determined never to come under the
Central Government again.

The New Orleans correspondent of the

Camakgo, August 10. There was a

There may be some show of fight at the

TTfco goes rev ITritlsh Interests?
We take, the following extract from the
speech of Mr. Johnson of Maryland, de
livered in the United States Senate a
iiiiinst trip n??trp nf tha Tiritish Tariff
e t b .
Bdl, rnd invite particular attention io the
paragraphs quoted from the Report of
Mr. Polk's Secretary of the Treasury, as
furnishing the most Conclusive proof, 6T i
the- Administration's ; hostility , to Ameri
can labor and of its partiality for British
in toasts Mr. Johnson -say 6 ; .;.
And now let mc call the attention of
the Senate to what the Secretary of the
Treasury says that we Bo'with the cotton
we send abroad, and what w ith the cotton
we sell at home, and then let us see why
lie prefers sending it abroad to having it
manufactured at home. I quote from
'At present prices our cotton crop will
" yield an annual product of 2,000,000,
'&. the manufactured fabric $501,000,000
FURNISHING PROFITS ABROAD
"TO THOUSANDS OF CAP1TAL-
ISTS, AD WAGES TO IIUN
" DREDSOFTIIE WORKING CLAS
" SES; all of whom would be deeply in-
jured by any disturbance growing out of
" a state of war,to the direct and adequate
" supply of the raw material-"
Who gels the benefit? We send abroad
the raw material worth 72,000,000, and,
by the process of manufacturing, its value
is enhanced, says the Secretary, Jto . 504,
000,000. If "that is done in England
somebody in England gets the benefit of
the operation; but, if it were all done here,
then somebody here would get thebenefit.
Now who is it that the Secretary wants
to get this difference in value? Hear
what he says; I give you his own words:
" At present prices our cotton crop will
" yield an annual product of $72,000,000,
" and the manufactured fabric $50-1,000,-"
COO, rrRMsnixo profits abroad to
" THOUSANDS OF CAPITALISTS, AND WAGES
TO HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF THE
" WORKING CLASSES."
Now you have, the country will sec,
what it is the Secretary wants to do.
he wants that these profits hhall be shared
by the thousands abroad. That is the
new theory, that is the revenue standard,
that is democratic in his view of the
matter. Could there be a more clear,
obvious, anti-American policy? We in
the United States raise a crop of cotton
worth 72.000.000, capable of being made
worth 504,000,CC0T How is it tobe made
worth 650I.C00.0C0. By the process of
be;pr manufactured. And how it that to
be done? The first thing ts to 'vest capi
tal in the rcaqisite buildings and machine
ry; the next to employ laborers. Here
then, is the employment of foreign capital
fc foreign labor,;; nd the fruit is to increase
72,000,000 to 504,000,000; an excess of
4o2,G'J0,(i00. Who gets it? The A
lnerican laborer? the American capitalist?
No, no; according to Mr. Walker's own
statement, that profit is furnished, and
should be furnished, to "thousands a
broad." Is that democratic? Yes, that is demo
cratic; that is the essence of democratic
wisdom: that is Jthe 'quintessence of po
litical economy; that is the benefit we are
to derive from progressive democracy
that progressive democracy which goes
beyond the United Slates, not confinig
itself to the limits of our own country.
Mr. President, I do not see how it is
possible there can be two opinions as to
the anti-national spirit and influence of'
such a system ns this. Wc are Ameri-
cans: w e have capital here; we have la
This American capital and
American tabor couiO jmsI as
those seven ty-lwo millions into five hun
dred and fonr million.-' as English cardial
and English labor. Whoever dors this
enjoys the w hole benefit of the ditlerence.
Let that seventy-two millions go abroad,
and hundreds of thousands of foreign la
borers are supported by those seventv-lwo
millions of American cotton. The Sec
retary's philanthropic spirit is so enlarged
and Miblimalcd that it takes in the whole
WGrk'.jnnd quite fjrgets home.

tice the fact that the Huntingdon county

county in relation to all future elective
officers from Governor the Auditor in
clvsivr. And again : the "Democratic Conven
tion" of Warren county, has adopted the
following, which is also to the point:
"Resolved, That rotation in office is a
democratic doctrine; and that the demo
cratic prrty of this county believe in ihe
policy of the "ONE TERM" principle,
so far as it relates to all offices where
patronage can be dispensed by the incum
bent!" At a locofoco meeting in Chester coun
ty, a LKADiNG Loco made some remarks
to the following effect. We copy from
the Village Record:
"A motion being made to adopt the
resolutions as reported, James Monaghan,
sq., declared that he could not vote for
the one which says that "Ym. B. Fos-
tcr, ue candidate for Canal Commission-
er, W33 "in every respect worthy of the ;
confidence of the people." Mr. M. said
he could not support that resolution. He
did not believe that Mr. Foster was wor
thy of confidence. lie said he had been
nominated by management: that he - had
withheld appointments upon the public
improvements in order to secure his nom
ination; and that he had used his office to
effect that object; and that to this day, he
had not made certain anDointments to fill
offices which were now held by men
who had given not one cent of security to
the State." lie could not approve such
conduct. Besides,- that " Mr. Foster,
when a delegate to the National Conven
tion at Baltimore had voted for the two
Thirds rule by which the Democracy of
Pennsylvania were betrayed, and the ma
jority defeated, And an effort was made
to sanction his conduct and his democra
cy. Such democracy as that of Mr. Fos
ter's he did not believe in "away with
it." said Mr. M. I want nothing to do
with such democracy ! Mr. Monaghan
went on in this strain; but we have not
room to follow him. We hope the dem
ocrats of Chester county will think for
themselves, as Mr. Monaghan , has, and
we have no doubt many of them will a
gree with him in disapproving of the
nomination of Foster."
The Lycoming Gazette, the organ of
the "unterriied democracy " of that coun
ty, has the following:
So for as our information extends,
the impression is very general that a cor
rupt bargain has actually been concluded,
and thatSlnmk and Foster Administra
tion and Canal Board, are to blend their
fortunes together, and each strive for the
promotion of his own and his fellow's
interests. We hope those concerned will
endeavor to place their conduct in a more
favorable light, for otherwise the polls
in this meridian will tell a doleful tali;
in October, for the democratic nominee,
William B. Foster."

. Washington, Sept. 1st, 184G.
I wrote you a week ago thatoursquadron
m the Pacific would not long remain idle,
having received positive instruction to b
up and doing. 1 now have the pleasure
cf communicating the loliowimi import
ant news :
Commodore Sloat entered the harbor
of Monterey, and on the Gih of July is
sued his proclamation to the inhabitants
of California, calling upon them to re
mam peaceful, assuring them that he did
not come as the enemy of California, but
as their friend that they are destined to
form part and parcel of the great federal
union of the United States, enjoying the
same rights and priviliges as the citizens
of those States. They should select
their own civ il officers and magistrates,
and enjoy nil other privileges of freedom
of which thev are now part or wholly de
prived. The revenue laws should be in
force in California as in the United States
bv which mcnsthev, as Calitornians and
members of the American Union, obtain
provisions and manufacturers of the U
nited States duty free, while all other im
ports would pay a duty at least twenty
five per cent, less than is now levied on
the same articles by the laws of Mexico;
those who will not become citizens of the
great American confederacy, to depart in
peace w ith all their property, provided
they lay dovn their arms and remain in
other respects neutral. He enjoins them
to retain their Aleades and other mnis
trales till they should have better digested
the particular form of government they
w ish to adopt, and have had lime to
elect other officers in their places. All
property of private citizens, and particu
larly that of the churches, should be re
spected; all supplies and provisions paid
for, on reasonable terms, and no private
property used for public purposes wilh-
1 out proper compensation.
The proclamation is dated Savannah,
harbor of Monterey, and Signed John B.
Sloat, commander-in-chief of the U. S.
forces in the Pacific.
Captain Montgomery, of the U. S.
ship Portsmouth, entered the harbor of
Verba buena, and issued his summons to
the inhabitants of the country, in virtue
of instructions from the Commodore. -The
mrnons bears date July 9, 1840.
In addition to the above news informa
tion hasVeached here that Col. Fremont's
advanced posts have reached Sonoma, to
the north of San Francisco. Gen Castro
Governor of the Prov dvanced at
the head of his troops to repulse them;
but the jrallant Colonel meeting him in

mong themselves. A junto met at Santa

Another Tile Swindle!
The leaders of the locofoco party,
startled at the great opposition made to
the British Tariff bill by the organs and
people of their own party throughout this
State, have concocted another vile swin
dle to betray Pennsylvania into the con
tinued support of Polk and Dallas. The
prime movers of the Kane villany are the
active agents in the new scheme, and
just so sure as the one was fatally suc
cessful, so will the other be if the least
countenance be given to it. The Phila
delphia Pennsylvanian, whose editor is a
feed Government office-holder, leads off
and begs that the democracy will not for
sake iheir rparty;' as he "has ' "assuran
ces" that lhe Gevemment views with the
-Jiiost favorable eye the w ishes . of Pcnn
sylvania, and will embrace the earliest
moment to do justice to her peculiar in
terests. This is taken up by the Dem
ocratic Union, the great central organ, and
circulated throughout the State, but it is
too bold a movement to be for a moment
successful. Pennsylvania cannot be a
gaitr duped into the support of a free trade
Administration, whose measures are ooly
calculated to strengthen Southern power
over the prostration of her own best in
terests. Norrislown Herald. ......
REDUCTION OF WAGES.
The Baltimore American says: "A re
duction of the prices of labor is one of
the inevitable effects of the repeal of the
American Tariff of 1812, and of the sub
stitution therefor of McKay's British Ta
riff Bill. The latter bill deliberately
takes away the sure protection to Ameri
can labor which the Act of 1342 had so
happily and wisely raised arounu it, anu
uie naru-iiiuiufu niuuir m uiu u.m
is left to sustain itself as it can against;
the -competition of the half-fed labor of
Europe. Although the 'British Bill' does ,
not so into operation until the first of!

anected the value of various articles.

io Detinue price,
it is true, has as vet been agreed upon,
but is is clear that a material reduction
must be submitted to. We further learn,
that in view of this condition of thing,
and the clouded prospects ahead, the pro
prietors of all the Iron Works in and
about Baltimore, have reduced the wages
of their workmen 25 per cent. These
woiks give employment to about two
thousand men, whose labor, literrally the
sweat of the brow, is thus reduced in val

The city was thrown into a broad grin
last evening by the denouncement of an
nouncement in some of the morning pa
pers, and also in Hand Bills around the
streets, that a Mr. Frouburg, the inventor
of a flying machine, would fly from
the top of the Hand Street Bridge to
the point and back again. This fabulous
gentleman exhibited a great deal of cour
tesy to the Press, and sent polite notes of
invitation, but the hoax was too transpar
ent to take. However, knowing the gul
libility of some of the people, we went
down to see how many would attend.
We confess we were astonished. Thou
sands were congregated on both sides of
the river, on the bridges, board piles, and
in fact on every point affording a good
view. We even imagined we could see
them on Coal Hill with spy glasses, ea
gear for a sight. It appeared to us there
were more women than men. This
crowd was really a curiosity, and we had
no litlle amusement in watching them.

a general hum ran round. With mouths
agape the multitude looked up. A man
got over the railings and approached the
edge and just as curiosity and wonder
were ready to burst, he opened a sack
and out flew a White Goose!! Such a
sloping off with mortified looks, it was
laughable to see, and the hoax afforded
matter for many a good joke during the
Wc regret to learn that on Saturday
last a son of Jeremiah Cloud, of Cumber
land township, in this county, was shot
through the head by an accidental dis
charge of his brother's horse pistol. Tho
mas was loading his pistol preparatory to
repairing: to the parade ground, ancL. his
little brother, Milton, was standing near
him. While he was ramming down the
wad, the powder ignited and theammer
nd load were lodged in the head and face
of his brother, who was so dreadfully mu
tilated that he died on the following day.
The rammer and other contend of the
pistol entered the corner of Milton's
mouth and passed up the cheek bone into
the tcimle and brain. No blame can be
attached to Thomas, though this accident
should be a warning to all others to be
careful in loading fire-arms. We under
stand that Thomas had his hand badly
injured by the discharge of the pistol
