A Double Withdrawal.
Mr. Jas. Hagerty announces' that he has
withdrawn from the field as an independent
candidate for Congress in the'third district of
Maryland, and from the whig party itself.
07'C. B. Langdon, Esq., of Lock Haven,
has cut loose from federalism. Ile could not
sanction the treasonable course of those who
oppose their own country on all occasions,
and take sides with the public enemy. He
says; "Since the beginning of the war, the
whig party seems to have substituted folly for
policy, and desperation for principle."
' The following letter was sent to the editor
of the Bedford Gazette a few days tigt; for pub
lication. The Gazette says: "Mr. Karns is
a gentleman of great respectability, 'and has
heretofore occupied a prominent position in
the Federal Mexican party. We hail his en
trance into the great Republican party with
great pleasure—who comes next? Listen to
the sound•and logical reasons adduced for !lie
decided step:" ,
GeN. BOW3IAN:-4 have' always voted the
\vhig ticket, but
,I cannot at present go with
that party—l cannot go against my country,
the land that g4ve me birth? lam a friend of,
the eiisting war, and cannot see, on due re
flection, that it could have been honorably
avoided—and as the Democratic party appear
to be the exclusive friends of the war I enroll
my name under their banner. •

Forgdy and Dec l eption.
.1s in .1838 the federal whi,g - pttrty, despair
ing of carrying the state by fair and honorable
means, have resorted to pass Fortreru .and .
"Peg Beatty'' affidavit makers been called in
to requisition, and although but a few days
remain before the, election, yet the disgrace-,
fail scenes of '3B, when Whig politicians trav
eled the entire sate promulgating their infa
mous falsehoods and false depositions, are 'a
gain to be re-enacted. Drowning men catch
at straws, and the federal party knowing well
that the billows of Democracy will assuredly,
on Tuesday next, overwhelin'them and their
ca+lidates, have resorted to the , falehood and
calumny so effectually and completely rein
tedlin the statements and depositions copied
into our columns to-day from tho Democratic
Under the hypocritical guise of conducting
the canvass on fair and hostorableterms-with
their presses daily a`nd weekly teeming with
articles denounci l ng all personalities, and de
precating the a lu / ions or+ the democratic
press to the .co nection of their candidates,
Irvin and Patton with the : iniquitous Bank—
rupt Law, the one as its father and the other
as having availed himself of its provisions in
the snug little sum of s22,ooo—they ; have
been secretly organizing their forcN) and now,
just upon the eve of the election, as a last and
final effort have resorted to the• basest, fraud
and forgery! in order to withdraw a portion
of the Democratic ,party from the support of
SIIUNK and LoNosTanTrr. But they will not
succeed!—the trick is to shallow!—the fraud
to glaring to deceive any.
This is no new gime with federal whigery.
All who resided in the state in 1838 know full
well that the leaders of this infamous Pie -bald
party will stoop to any and every thing to
carry their point. The Federal press was
then the vehilde of slander against the char
acter of the Democratic candidate for Gov
rnor. Wind wonder that it should bo so
ow: It then abounded with "Peg Beatty"
affidavits, base frilsehoods & glaring forgeries:
Could we reasonably expect anything better
now' Again, just on the eve of the election
the Federal editors of Pittsburgh concocted
the notorious islanders againat , Gov. SHIM{
in regard to "I/IJ, Bible," -4
'the Catholic proces
sion",and "trampling on the anteriean Flag."
miserabie inventions of Federalism
were proved tobe false, Governor Situtqls was
triumphantly elbeted, and the authors of the
falsehoods branded with such a load of infamy
that they have ne since been able to look
on honest maniahe eye, but sneak off when
the subject is broa he'd in,their presence like
sheep killing hounds. The Erie Gazette was'
among the first! to promulgate this infamous
falsehood. What wonder then that it should
now join wiih the North American in an en
deavor, by the same base,means, to defeat the
re-election of Gov. Shunk. . .
•And what think you, reader, is the great
and • horrible cme which .they now charge
against Gov. Slunk, in the-hopes - of defeating
hiii election. A simple relation of facts. and
the proof which we append, will enable the
readei to see.te whole plot of federalism as
clear as the light.of day. •

The DetnOcratic Union says it feels pretty

the Champion was edited by a notorious'whig

on Mr. Mulilenberg in his min'paper, were

manuscripts. Morgan; hog ever, stated that.
certain articles against Mr.kMuletiberg had
been written by Messrs. filler, Petriken,,
&c., and that the original Manuscripts were
still in the possession of Augustus Sprigman.
I was astonished at such a charge; and I ,at
once determined, if it could be - sustained, to
lay the whole matter before the public Prior
to the 4th of March Convention. I called on
Sprigman who informed me that he had such
manuscripts, and upon. giving him a certain
sum of money, he placed them in my posses
sion in the presence of Morgan. I refused to
make use of the manuscripts until the hand-,
writing could be identified; but Morgan in
tared upon going ahead, alleging that ivheth
er true or not, the friends of Mr.. Muhlenberg
would lailieve the charge, and thus defeat the
noininzumn of Mr. Shunk.
I must admit, that from the 'statements of:
others % I - was led to believe that tiro or thre
of the manuscripts %%ere genuine, and accor
' dingly referred to them in are editorial article.
As soon, however, as Sprigman saw the arti
cle I had written, he called upon me and said
he was sorry he had deceived ine4but he
solemnly declared that the articles he had sold
me were not genuine—oil, in other words,
that 'Messrs. Miller andl t 'etriken had nut
written them—but that mos of them were in
gentleman hand-writing of a certain gentleon of
Harrisburg, in nu manner connected with - the
administration. When I remonstrated with
him for deceiving me, he urged in ex:tenuat ion '
that he was intoxicated when , he ;furnisli, - 2d
me- with the mainiseripts. ,
On' the morn
g of the .sth of March, a cer
tain Whig of Harrisburgcalled me to' one
side, and told me that heiwas authorized to
give me 950 if I would agree to furnish them
(the Whigs) with a certain article, supposed
to be in my possessiod, headed "The Blooded
Parson." k I promptly declined his offer. He
then raised to $lOO. I told him he wus mis
taken in his man—that I would sell myself to ;
no man, nor toany party. ,On the same, day;
I placed the article alluded to In the hands of '
Judge Laporte, telling hitnlat the same pme,-
that the Whigs wished to obtain it frthn me.
but that I was disposed'to s upport the regular •
nominees of the Democratic party, and that
other articles were in the Possessioa :of Mor
gan and myself, which I'wOuld place at hiS
disposal, as soon us I could see Morgan; who
was then in Bloomfield. Sometime after that_
I handed ten or twelve of t h e articles over to
Mr. Petriken, requesting him to hand' them
to Mr. Laporte. These were all that I had
in my possession at that time or since. I ,
