TO THE WHIGS AND.nViMASONS OF SOM
ERSET cocxty :
The election is nih at hand, and the
question therefore presents itself: "how
goes the light?" Your opponents are
quietly, yet actively engaged in mustering
their forces and will make a vigorous ef
fort to elect their candidates. Are you
prepared to look calmly on and permit a
minority, numbering scarcely one third of
the voters of the county, to "come the gi
raffe" over you and give you a real Wa
terloo defeat, when ycu have it in your
power to avert such a disastrous result?
Wc hope not: we trust not. Cut you
must bestir yourselves, otherwise all will
Le lost. We speak, now of the county
For the several oniees uf Assembly,
Sheriff, and County Commissioner, there
arc a number of Whig candidates in the
field, whilst the Locos have but a single
candidate for each office. You perceive,
therefore, that they have every chance of
electing tkir men, unless you give up
your personal preferences and concentrate
your forces. The Whig candidates arc
all good men, but cannot all be elected
nd the only way in which you can elect
any or them, will be by first ascertaining
who are the strongest, and then uniting
upon them. We "speak to you as unto
vase men; hearken ye to what wc say'."
A let'er from Sun Antonio de Ikxar,
(Texas) dated Sept. 5lh, and published
in the New Orleans papers, states that
Capt. Washington's Artillery arrived at
that place the preceding day, and undo
(juite a formidable appearance.
Gen. Wool had contemplated to set his
forces in motion on the 15ih instant, for
the invasion of the province of Chihua
hua. His command numbers 3,000 men,
infantry, dragoons and artillery.
It is perhaps not generally understood
thai the Army of Isva-sicn consists now
of three divisions one under Col. Kear-
ney, marcning upon oama t, ,u-,-.x
under Gen. Wool, proceeding toward
capital cf Chihuahua; and the main body
under Gen. Taylor, on their way to M on-
Gen. Taylor expected to be at
:rey on the 15ih inst., from whence he
intended to march upon Saltillo, a town
about CO miles bevond.
There are a great many voters in this
county who, not taking a county newspa
per, scarcely know who are the candi
dates; and as the Whigs have no town
ship committees, it is to be feared there
will be but a small vote polled at the en
suing election. Our opponents, the Lo
cos, we understand, are busy in all the
townships, and will no doubt poll a heavy
rote for their candidates. Now, we think
it the duty of every Whig or Antimason
in the county who understands these mat
ters, and who has any time to spare, to
devote, a few days the week before the
election to the "good old cause," and urge j
his neighbors to turn out to the election.
What say ye?
Will vou do it?
The Governor has appointed Hon.
Richard Cocltxr, of Westmoreland,
Judge of the Supreme Court, in the place
vacated by the decease of Judge Kenne
dy. Mr.' Coulter is one of the oldest
?nd most prominent Members of the
Western Bar, and his appointment, we
have no doubt, will give general satisfac
tion. Canal Commissioner.
We have printed and sent into the sev
eral townships, tickets for James M.
Power, for Canal Commissioner, and de-
tire our Wi.i? friends to see to it that ev
rrv Whig vo-cr will put one of them in-!

WILL PENNSYLVANIA HE DE
CEIVED? It not a little surprises us, thot the lea
,lrc .if tho Democratic party should have
the hardihood so soon to beset the people. ;
of Pennsylvania with promises oi ;"0(!1-;
fying and better suiting the free trade bul
ol 40 to tne mieresis ui mt-
vidfld thev will nve them their support at
tlieapproaciiing election for members of
Congress. J he oft-repeated promise
made them in 1S44, that Mr. Polk should
defend the Tariff of '42, and thus guard
now volunteer a new one to the effect,
that whatever is contained in the present
bill inimical to their welfare, shall be re-
moved, and where additions are requisite,
they shall be made. Wc have before gi
ven specimens of their mode of proce
dure, and now add another to the nnm
ber, from the Udonfau n Genius of Li
ban;, setting forth the principles and in
tended course of Damex Weyand, the
Democratic candidate for Congress in op
position to Hon. Antuew Stewart.
Here it is:
"He Mr. Weyanu would advocate
the Tariff law of 184C, which discrimi
nates in favor of American industry, and
particularly in favor of Pennsylvania in
terests. Where it is not sufficient to pro
tect the American products, he would
have it increased! He would not, like
Mr. Stewart, throw the. fat in the fire by
an indiscriminate war upon the whole
bill, and eflect nothing at last."
Very fair indeed; but we are disposed
to doubt whether Pennsylvania will ac
cept Mr. Weyanp's valuable services in
adapting the free trade bill of '40 to the
use of her people. We think they are
satisfied with Mr. Stewart, and perfect
ly willing to let "well enough" alone.
They are aware of his high order of ta
lentand consummate ability in handling
the tariff subject; and ought to be fully
convinced that, were they to hunt the
State over for the purpose of making a
selection, they could not place upon the
floor of Congress an abler defender cf a
just revenue law, or a stauncher friend to
That State wants, and, in fact, needs,
the Tariff cf '42. To this measure the
Democracy are opposed, and it is useless
to suppose that the leaders of that party
will upheld it. They look upon the tariff
question as a sectional policy, while they
ought, as the Whigs all over the Union
do, to regard it as a great national mea
sure. This is plainly shown by the pro-
I mise made in the above extract, that where
ti,e tlutfcs are not sufficiently high in the
new bill "o protect tfmcricun products,
tic (Mr. Weyand) v:ovhi have them in-crt-nscd!'
But how is it possible for
Democrats, in other States, oppose higher
on coal anJ iron anJf ,,kc himself;
desire that all the protection afforded by
the bill, be given t- the products of their
own respective sections of country?
While in Pennsylvania protection is only
sought for Coal " and Iron, in Louisiana it
is opposed on every article of produce
save Sagar and Molasses. In Vermont
Wool is the favorite, whilst in New York,
if Salt be not protected, the Democratic
party will support no'revenuc measure
whatever. The same party in Maine
care for nothing but the Fishing Bounty
the drawback on fish cured for expor
tation with foreign salt. So goes the
North; but in the South the whole policy
of protection, except in Louisiana, is re
garded by the Democracy, as a system of
fraud and oppression. Go to the West
and we find the same confliction of senti
ment. Missouri is strenuous for the pro
tection of Lead, and so are Illinois, Iowa
and Wisconsin; but the Democrats of
Ohio and Indiana think this very protcc
tion a gross outrage upon their rights.
Kentucky Democracy is vcrv fond of
protection to Hemp, Cordage and Cotton
BatrginT, which South Carolina and Ala
bama deplore as one of the severest evils
rf tbn times. Now. could the Democra
tic members of Congress, from the sev-
eral States mentioned, hit upon a compro- -
mise in framing a new tariff billeach
one entering upon the list the rate of du-!
ties which he desired to be paid upon the
products of the section from which he
hailed, (doubtless Mr. Weyaxd's idea)
we imagine the country would soon boast
a bill cf vrch ibi lions, instead of a inst
revenue measure, such as the Tariff of'
1842. But these protection Democruls
form but a corporal's guard of their party,
and can consequently do nothing. So
the people must look to the great V hig
