Great TariiT Victory!
. H7'g Canal Commissioner, IV his;
J)'lcnlii to Congress, and a H his;
Stats Senate end House if Eepiacn
We have the pleasure of announcing
to our readers one of the greatest political
victories ever achieved by any party in
Pennsylvania. The Whigs' have swept
the State from the centre to the circum
ference. They have elected their candi
date lor Canal Commissioner, 1? out of
21 Members of Congress and a majority
of 10 to the Assembly, and have 18 out
of the 33 .Members of the Stale Senate.
Pennsylvania stands by the Tariff of
IS42, as the sheet-anchor of her prcs
peritv. Though cut off by base and
treacherous hands, it is destined to be
restored again at a day not distant. Her
people have spoken in a voice audible as
thunder, and her betrayers may take war
ning from it and prepare for the coming
Etorra, in other Slates of the Union.
Tolnnlcers lor Mexico!
It will be remembered that Congress
EUihorizcd the calling out of 50,000 vol
unteers to be employed against Mexico,
should the Executive deem it expedient,
rjj that Pennsylvania's quota of that
force was fixed at six regiments. In the
carlv part of the Summer a number ot
Volunteer companies from this Slate ten
dered their services, but owing to a strong
turn out from the Western and South
western St-ites they were r.ji ;I..n acrepl
f.,1. Vn learn, however, that a rrouisi-
' . I
lion has been made upen Gov. Shunk j
, r, . , r
wit nn tne nast weeii, lor tne wnoie oi
this Suites quota of men, we suppose
for the purpose of reinforcing Gen. Tay
lor's Army at Monterey, and the proba
bility therefore i., that onr gallant volun
teers will ere long find opportunities to
distinguish themselves on t!w battle-fields
The Tniig and Anliiiiasons cf
Though the day w?.s one of the most
disagreeable we had tne present season, j
t':e who!e-Ciued Yv higs and Antmissons
of this county did their duty nobly on
the dav of the election. The turn out
was small, it is trn?, but still much great
er thm many supposed it would be vhen
they saw it raining ail day. Onr moun
tain boys do not regard a little sprinkling,
however, when duty calls them to the
b:dlot-boxe? and whether there be "rain
"do up thing?
War Kan or s.
We have several rumors in regard to
the present state of affairs at Monterey,
the litest of which is, that the Mexicans
h'aj lurried upon Gen. Taylor and attack
id him in the city, but were repulsed with
the loss of from 1200 to 1800 men in
kilh-d and wounded, and that Gen. Tay
lor had lost from 300 to 500. We have
not been able to trace lhi3 rumor to any
reliable source, and cannot say, therefore,
what degree of credit it is entitled to.
The election in Ohio has resulted in

From the Pittsburgh American. -Speaker
el" the House of Kejpre-
As the choice of this officer is not on
ly of great importance to the entire Le
gislation of the session, but singularly so
in tne selection ol Committees ol the
House ami in all the bearings of conser
vative legislation, we 'would earnestly
recommend the election of Col. Edie of
Somerset. Mr. E. is a man of talents
a staunch Whiff, and in all respects admi
rably qualified for the Chair. We there
fore most cheerfully recommend him for
the station, and trust that the Whigs and
Antimasons of the State together, will
cordially unite with us in placing him in
the Chair. '
JO We cordially concur in the fore
going recommendation of the American.
Col. Edje is a man of "the right stripe,"
and would make an excellent presiding
officer. The "Frosty Sons of Thunder,"
. moreover, are entitled to some little dis
j tinetion for their persevering eft
1 half of tiie ascendancy of Wl
torts in be-
ples, and we trust it will be conferred up
on them by electing; their Representative
to the Speakership of the House.

DaUimore Election For Mayor.
The election for Mayor and city coun
cil in Baltimore was held on Wednesday
last, and resulted in the election of. the
Locofoco cahdidate by a majority of 106
The American says:
The largest vote ever cast in Baltimore
was that of yesterday, the aggregate be
ing 17,701. At the State election held
last week the whole vote was 14,809, be
ing 2832 less than yesterday. At the Pre
sidential election in 1814, the aggregate
vote was 17,301.
The City Council will stand in the
FirFt Branch 1 1 Democrats, and 9 Whigs.
In the Second Branch, 5 to 5.
Last year the First Branch consisted of
17 Democrats and 3 Whigs, and the Sec
ond Branch of 9 Democrats and 1 Whig.
The Nashville Union of the 1st instant
says: "Yesterday morning four men, cal
ling themselves Wm. C. Spencer, Win.
Brown, James Johnson, ond Wm. Boyd,
were brought before Justice Ferriss on a
charge of having in their possession coun
terfeit money. On an examination there
was found in one of their saddlebags be
tween $15,000 and $17,000 of counter
feit paper money, on the Bank of Ken
tucky, 'he Northern Bank of Kentucky,
Yates Couhtv Bank at Pen van, New-
York, the Planters Bank of Alabama, (no
such bank in existence.) and banks in
Virginia. They had also in their posses
sion copper plates and other necessary
implements for engraving money upon all
the above mentioned banks. The engra
ving for the Planters Bank of Alabama is
the same as the Planters Bank in Ten
nessee, with the exception ol the change
of the name of the State."
etv Copper Discovery at Miner
Extract of a letter, dated "Mineral
Point, Sept. 25th, 18 J G." A very splen
did show of copper .has just been opened
here. It is a regular sbect, running north
west and southwest, going down into the
water, and the ore is believed by men
competent to judge, to contain 45 or 50
per cent, of copper. It will not, how
ever, be worked at present, because smel
ters will not give what the ore is worth.
About a ton of this rich ore will be ship
ped to Boston forthwith. At the diggings
of Mr. Woodman and .Mr. Hubbard, there
is a large quantity of ore now in sight,
and it is estimated by miners, that the
ground now broken will turn out from
300 to 500 tons of ore.
ROCKY MOUNTAIN CORN.
Corn, the seed or which was brought
by Lieut. Fremont from the Rocky Moun
tains, is growing in Albany. Each ker
nel is enveloped in a husk.
The above paragraph, the Philadelphia
IVnnsylvanian says, h going the rounds
of the press. In some places it is called
Rice Corn, both names covering one va-
nety. i ne same description oi corn tins
been cultivated all through the West and
Sou;h these fn'teen years; and :i positive
nuisance for all ordinary purposes it is,
except when ground, hull and all, for feed
ing rattle. The common Pennsylvania
yellow yields a greater return, and is
much more desirabb: in every respect,
whatever fancy agriculturists may say to
Tl'.e offi'.ial p iper, the Union, inform
ed the public yesterday that orders would
be immediately transmitted to Gen. Tav
Lon to terminate t!io asmibUce, and ad
vance; and we understand that an officer
(Maj. J. (JRAnAM) will set out this morn
ing with all sped for Gen. Taylor's
headquarters, with the orders alluded to
bv the Union. fNat. Int. Oct. 14.
MoNTr.REY, now in possession of Gen.
Taylor, is the capital of the State of
New Loon. It is on tho Fernando river,
about 2'0 miles from its mouth. It has
well-paved streets and mostly one story
stone buildings. The population is about
10,000, and the city is situated on the
main travelling route from the Rio Grands
to the city of Mexico.
