Whigs of Mifflin!
On Tuesday next you will be called upon
once more to cast your suffrages in vindication
of Whig Principles. On that day will he decid
ed the great questions, whether the Cannl IJoard
shall be composed wholly of Locofoea i or not—
whether Milllin county shall be represented in
the next Legislature by one w ho will render his
aid in carrying out I.orofoco measures, however
much to the detriment of our best interests they
may be—and, whether mtr County Officers shall
AI L he of the sau.e party which has for years
ruled the county without restraint. These are
among the questions which are brought before
your consideration ; and therefore it behooves
you to arouse to action, that your interests may
not be TRAMPLED vron !
Then let us earnestly invoke you, ye. gallant
sons of Mifflin, to TCRN OPT ! As you value the
prosperity of your National and State Adminis
trations, your own interests, and your children's
future happiness, wc call upon you to TURN
OUT! and not only turn out , but WORK TOO!
Let no one coolly put his hands in his pockets
and exclaim "There is no use in trying!" This
is a wholly groundless and mistaken notion.
The Whig party have but to lay hold of the
work with the proper spirit, as was shown last
year—to obtain a full turn out—to give " a long
pull, a strong pull, and a pull altogether," and
SUCCESS IS CERTAIN!
From every part of the State we have assur
ances of the most cheering character; our pros
pects are bright, and even the Locofucos them
selves are beginning to think there is something
wrong in the Canal Hoard. And their appre
hensions are not without foundation. They hud
that their candidate is fast losing the confidence
and esteem of the independent freemen of Penn
sylvania—they behold the appalling truth that
Locofocoism is tottering under popular con

it to be wondered that LOCOFOCOS TRF..M

INDEPENDENT FREEMEN as DEMOCRATIC
A Lorofoco Forgrir.
The locofoeo papers are publishing what pur
ports to be a private letter from Henry M. Ful
ler, the whig candidate for Canal Commissioner,
to F. Saxton, a Free Soil democrat of Luzerne
county, in which Mr. F. declares himself "in
favor of Free Soil, Free Speech, Free Labor,
and Free men," but which, as published, shows
other matters were incorporated, all professing
to come from Mr. Fuller. Mr. Saxton has ad
dressed a letter to the Pennsylvanian, in which
the forgery originally appeared, wherein he
says:—"The letter, as published in the PUDl
isylvanian, teas not received by me." He concludes
as follows :
" 1 have always been a democrat, am a demo
crat still, but cannot swallow the Pittsburgh
Platform. 1 do not believe in Buchanan wages
at 10 cents a day. Ido not believe in extending
an institution which is in violation of human
rights, at war wilh the public sentiment of the
i world, destructive of northern interests, and a
! curse wherever it exists. Knowing Mr. Fuller
to entertain the same sentiments, and believing
him therefore to he a better democrat than .Mr.
Gamble, whose efforts, to my knowledge, con
tributed largely to the defeat of that excellent
man, William B. Foster, in 1*46, 1 shall sup
port him. Let others do as they mav.

' A GROSS OITRAOE. We understand, says
the Lancaster Tribune , that the Superintendent
has notified the Phoenix Line (owned by Gener
al Miller and others) that hereafter they will
not be permitted to run their Passenger Car
with the Fast Line on the Columbia and Phila
delphia Railroad. The reason given for this
base attempt to prevent any thing like fair
competition on the road is, that the addition of
the car of the Phoenix line makes the train too
large and prevents the dilivery of the mail with
in the stipulated time. All this is mere subter
fuge, intended to gloss over the real object of
those who control the road. It will he difficult
to make people believe that in this age of im
provement a locomotive cannot be found of
sufficient rapacity and speed to haul a train con
sisting of three or four Passenger Cars.

The Gold — Health of the Emigrants — Troubles an
ticipated between the Americans and Spaniards.
The Now York Tribune publishes news from
California, 16 days Hter, by the steamer Pana
ma, received through Mazatlau, Mexico, and
|by the steamship Severn, at Mobile. It does
not add much to the amount of information pre
viously received, but is satisfactory in showing
that the yield of gold was steady, and though
there was, as a matter of course, much disap
pointment among individuals, the general result
was highly satisfactory. It is estimated that
the average product of all the mines together,
thus far, since the beginning of the season, has
been $2,00(1,(MX) per month, and there was
| thought to be no doubt of its continuance at the
same rate of abundance. No change 19 quoted
in the prices either of gold or merchandise.
The health of the population, both at the
! mines and elsewhere, is generally good, and
neither cholera nor any other serious inaludy is
reported as having made its appearance.
The jealous, unfriendly feeling which has so
long been in existence between the Americans
and South Americans of Spanish origin, has at
last approached a crisis, and by the next arrival
we may expect to hear of a grave collision, at
least if the party warned ofl" display anything
i like a manly spirit. The Americans have de
i termined that the Mexicans and Chilians who
arc at the mines, shall no longer enjoy the priv
ilege of digging out the riches of the earth, and
have taken deliberate measures accordingly.—
All companies of these nations who ha\e come
organized to work for the season, with the in
tention of returning to spend the winter and wet
i season at home, have been informed that their
presence will r o longer be*tolerated, and have
received positive orders to leave the gold region
and not return.
The order to evacuate allows a fixed time,
sufficient for the retiring parties to make all
necessary preparations. The Americans seem,
from our information, to have proceeded very
calmly about It, and tip to the 18th no disturb
ances whatever had taken place; they were
1 waiting for the expiration of the allotted period,
after which, should the rejected adventurers re
fuse to leave, they would set about making them.

Wc understand that a young man, named G.

committing a number of robberies at different
hotels in that city, at Cape May, arid other
places. The property stolen comprises tnonev,
gold watches, and numerous articles of valuable
jewelry. The greater portion of the watches
i and jewelry has been recovered. This individ
ual, who has thus been detected in a criminal
career of so lamentable an aspect, we are in
formed, has a widowed mother in Centre coun
ty, to whom the news of his disgrace will doubt
less be a terrible blow, ami is otherwise most
respectably connected. He lias been residing

as shawls, &c.
Sentence and Suicide of a Mnnierer.
FREDERICK SMITH, who, it will be remember
ed, was found guilty of the crime of murder at
the August term of the. Court of Adams county,
and whose counsel had filed a motion for a new
trial, was on the 25th ult. again brought before
the Court, and the application for a new trial
having been overruled, his Honor Judge I.)ur
kcc accordingly passed sentence of death upon
him. It is said that during the whole proceed
ings of the trial, although the feelings of others
were at times apparently moved, the guilty cul
prit maintained a sternncssof countenance, that
scented to betray a hardness of heart which no
thing but repeated crimes could have effected.
After he had received his sentence he was re
manded to prison, to aw ait the day of rxecuj
tion, when on the following Thursday he com
mitted suicide, by hanging himself in his cell.
He had made a rope of a piece of linen, part of
his bed-clothing, &c., with which he suspended
himself to an iron bar. From a contusion in
his face it was supposed that he had made sev
eral unsuccessful attempts before he succeeded
in destroying himself. It is said that he made
a confession before bis death to the Deputy
Sheriff and others, but what its purport is we
are not informed.
