From the Wushmei..h Unu n Aug 28
Difficultiei are th!ckehing around the
whigparty. Yesterday we published an
article from the Savannah Republican,
which his hitherto sustained the Scott tick
et, justifying and defending the Webster
movement in Georgia as one of supreme
necessity in that 'State, in order to prevent
a large fragment of the Whig party from
falling into the democratic ranks, this ma
king the defeat which awaits Gen. 'Scoff
in November the'permanent overthrow
and destruction of the Whig patty. We
also published yeSterday an article from
the Boston Courier, the home organ of Mr.
Webster, which urges on the movement
in Massachusetts having for its object the
nomination of a separate ticket tbr Mr.
Webster in that state. The Boston Post
of Tues - dity morning contains the proceed
ings of whig meeting held in Boston the
night previous. It was convened by reg.
War notice, fo . r the purpose of appoihting
delegates to' iepresetit the city of Boston
at. the whig Cldn‘leiltion to be holden at the
'city of Wol*stit'llext week,, and to elect
n'County coning ee 'flit the enSaing year.
thiigtig thO plaigeess of the meeting, one of

nounced that, whatever electoral ticket the
Whigs might nominate at the convention,
there were those who would feel bound to
o:up,anoiller'electoral 60;0. This dee
laration.iS significant, and shows•that the
difficulty in the Whig party of flilissachu
sett' IS 'deep •sented ; that it does not arise
froth tiny rivalries between persons and
cliques as to the composition of the eled
toial ticket, hut froth the character of the
whig 'nomination made by the' Baltimore',
elation, and its anteceihmts, and from
exigencies of the wing party growing
out of that nomination. And, what is
more significant still, during the excite
'Merit which the allusion to the presidential
'preg.rences gave rise to, a call - was made

CuNcolzu, (N, II.,) August 13, 1.552
DnAn Sin : Understanding that an im
pression has obtained in Wisconsin to a
considerable extent, and especially among
that portion of yoUr people that are Call).
lics, that General Franklin Pierce,-of this
State, was unfriendly, to Catholics as a
religious sect, and that, an attempt has
bced made to huld him responsible foi the
odious religious test contained in the con
stitution. of this State, the undersigned,
Catholic citizens of Concord, deem it our
duty to say that the Cutholies of this State
and of New Englarid, and especially that
portion of than that are of his political
opinions entertain for him the highest res
pect as a pnliticiau and a man. Especially
,do they feel under great obligations to him
for his powerlhl efforts in the convention
to OtpUllge that' odious "test" from the
constitution of New Hampshire, and for
his etfor:s before the people to have the
amendment to the constitutiOn adopted
which provided for the striking out the re
ligious test.
Any impression of the kind iniiicated
does Gen. Pierce great injustice, and we
regret that fOr partizan purposes he has
been thus misrepresented. We send this
to you, not,
_for electioneering or-partizan
purposes, but as a simple acy or justko to
one of the strongest opponepts the odious
"test" has in New Ilainspriire, and to . one
of,the most liberal and tolerant of its citi
zens. We have been- )resent in several
meetings, and at the last town meeting,
when proposed amendment was sub
mitted to the pevle, and have heard Gen.
Pierce address.the people in favor of abol
ishing this "test," - m ---.-- A -- atty--re+wesentation
that lie is opposed to striking out deli
"test," or that he has not exerted himself
to have that test abolished, must proceed
either front profound ignorance, or mali
cious Misrepresentation 61: the man, his
character and- course, in relation to this
"test'!'question. •

We learn that our Democratic friends
of the new and flourishing village of Lum
berville, and its vicinity, on Saturday last,
met together and raised a PIERCE and
KING Pole. The notice was not general,
(for which we are very sorry, or the num
ber in attendance would have been much
larger,) but as it was, there was a very full
turn out from the adjoining townships of
Ferguson and Penn, and a good feeling
manifested. The Polo, we are informed,
is in dvery respect worthy of the good
cause, and the interest manifested by those
in attendance, betokened the wholesome
feeling that perVades the ranks of the De
mocracy everywhere. We rejoice tphear

Col. Hopkins,. of Washington county,
will be remembered by most of our read
ers as the gentleman who was Speaker of
the regular 'branch of the House of Rep.
resentatives at the time of the Buck-Shut
War. For his firmness in doing right and
opposing wrong on that trying occasion,
he has received many sincere though val
ueless compliments. Now the Democracy
will be glad of the opportunity to reward
him for his devotion to the Constitution and
the people. He is a man of excellent tal
ents, extensive experience; and ardently
devoted to the honor and welfare and pros
perity of our good old Commonwealth.
(1..7./ The Pierce and Kin o rrKing Club No.

rfotnination of Woodward and Hopkins,,
was received on last Saturday evening.—
We never saw a set of Democrats , better
pleased. The single announcement bro't
every fellow to his feet, and three times'
three were given with a spirit worthy of
our cause.
The Federal papers are publishing, in
glowing letters, a paragraph, for which
they give the National haellig,ciwcr for
authority, stating that the United States has
run into debt to Kirope, "upwards of two
hundred millions of dollars," under the
tariff of 1846.
Now, we pronounce this, as stated, tobe
a monster lie, and defy them to produce

Messrs. Editors: —Perhaps some of your
Whig readers would like to read the opinion
of'''the Albany Evening Journal, (now
devoted Scott paper,) edited by that sterl
ing old Whig, Thurlow Weed, upon Gen.
Scotts qualifications in 1848.
For their special benefit, will you please
publish the following extract from that pa
per of March 20, 1848.
"But the mischief is, there is weakness
in all he (Scott) says or
,does about the
Presidency. Immediately after the close
of the campaign of 1840, he wrote a gra
tuitous letter, making himself a candidate,
in which all, sortf of unwise things were
said, to return and plague his friends if he
ever should be a candidate, and since that
time ; with a fatuity which seizes upon men
whe,get bewilder e d in gazing at the White
House; 'he has been*,suffering
,his pen to
dim the glorie4 achieVed by.the.sword.
Those ",unwise things" have rcturned to
plague his friends, and, could the various
foolish letters which he has written, be col
lected one volatile, and p'ut 'inky, the
Jiands of the voters, t o Would not carry a
,single state id the Uniod. The fear °fan
\ o
other batch of the "unwise ,things," has
required Seward- and Greely tii• seal his
lips during the campaign. Yes—be it re.
membered the Whig Party, are 'milting
American, citizens to-, vote - for. tii,maa for
President, whom they•dare not *trust with
.pen and ink, through fear of the utterance
of , "all Sorts of unwise things," for which
fie is notorious. &nig :tkrino.

district for Congress.
KENTUCH Y.-A highly distinguished
democrat in Kennickv writes a democratic
member of Congress froth that State, un.
der date of August 14,1852. Weextract
from his letter as follows:
'•our prospects for carrying Kentucky
are good, and brightening every day. The
best feeling prevails mono our friends. Our central committee are laboriously t. en
gaged in perfecting a thorough organiza
tion. There is no feeling among the
svhigs. They have no stomach for the
fight in Kentucky. Ltrust and believe
the day will never come when-the victor
ious banners of Scott, Seward, Greeks',
& Co. shall wave over this proud State.''
Krill regard to a protective tariff, an
obsolete dogma which ;the Whigs, with
strange fatality and ' blindness, still cling
to, our readers well know that we alWayti
maintain the opposite end of the argument.
A tariff for revenue is all we shall ever live
to see in this country ;, and a gradual ap
proximation to free trade is just as inevita
ble as the increase of knowledge, liberty,
and peace. But in this matter also, Con.
gress—inexorably Democratic—will al
ways hold the country from raising the tar
iff beyond the revenue point.
This is progressive Whiggery. The
Mirror has been a very fierce Whig pa
per, but the editor has learned some sense.
