"The Bradford Settler."
We informed our readers last week, that Gen.
Patton had sent his printers to, Montrose-to- get out
a piratical paper to be called "The Bradford Settler,"
and cautioned our democratic friends against its
false pretensions. The Bradford Settler has made
its appearance.- We haie one before us. It Is, as
we predicted; filled with "sound and fury" against
the Democratic candidatefor Congress, andall sorts
of falsehoods'and misrepresentations' to deceiie the
people and induce them to vote with the Whip for
the opposition candidate.
The Bradford Settler purports to be published , in.
this Borough, which in itself, is a falsehood and
fraud upon the people. No such paper has been
published here. It was got out in CohLtlsk's office
at Montrose, for the special purpose of giving vent
to Gen. Patton's venom; and the matter requisite
to fill up the sheet is the same that appeared in Col.
Lusk's paper last week.

Genuine !Whig Principles.
• •• Gen. Patton is on the regular Whig track. He
says in , his Pirate...-. We- hold to regular nomina
tions, but wben the people find that their candidate
is opposed, to their interests, then the nomination
beecimei irregis' /or. The people had not time m in
vestikate Hr. Wilmot's 'course Until after the'dele.
gate Tlections, or. they would bare opposed his re
ticeeditigly mildest. Tke'peopk hod not lime to
iimertigaie Mr,Walituser course. In other words, the
peoP4 are ignorint, they don't read nor understand
What their representatives are doing. It takes the
General to enlighten them i and as he did not mote
until alter the election of delegates.—but actually
.voted for delegates for Mr. Wilmot himselt—the
people were doomed to remain In ignorance, btlkd
folded—tied hand and foot, until the General, &nip.
sowlike, burst the badlis • asunder and proclalraed
liberty to the 'captives.
What a comment upon the wahine, and pre
sumption ofa man, a prey to selfish and ungoverna
Since Mr. Wilmot returned from Congress, Gen.
P. his own free wilt and accord, said to
should vote for his re-election; but this was before
the delegate eleCtion—and We presume the General
had not had time to investigate his coarse. At the
delegate election the General voted for delegates
known as the open and .avowed friends of Mr. Wit
mot:. but we presume he had not then had time to
investigate Mr. Wilmot's coarse.
But the General'has awakened from his Rip Van
Winkle slumber. and the work of the ignorant dele
gates who did not understand Mr. Wilmot's course,
but voted unanimously for his re -nomination, is to
he knocked into a cocked hat by his superior inteM-
Renee.. saßaciTsrld prowess.
We understand the Whigs are hoping to elect
their candidate for Commissioner by enticing demo
emtlevoiers to go for Mr. Briggs through sympithY,
and because he is a u clever fellow." We hope no
depocrat will stiffer himself to abandon his party
rincirles, or vote against any of its regular nomi
nat ions on account of personal friendship,or social
neighborhioxi, relations. We hive . a high respect
for Mr. Briggs, and would go as far to do him a
kindness as anyother friend, where it did not com
promise principle; bathe is now before the peo
pie as the candidate of the federal party for an im
portant office, and if elected will in its tulministra
tion carry ontlederal principles. The office of COM.
• missioner'continues three 'years, - and to place 'a
federalist in it, is to lien to hint the . pewits. to ope
rate; dating that time for - the ' ; Overthrow of the

We matt that the Settlers will place a proper animate

"Mr. White, them has an interest In common with the mass

Bach is the language held by the organ of the
Whig party of this county, as a reason why free
men should vote for Mr. White inpreference to Mr.
Wilmot. Has it come to this I Is the reign of ter

poor," to be re-established.
We confess ourselves utterly surprised, that men
can be &land in our midst, at this day, who boldly
and unblushingly advocate such a monstrous doc
trine; and we cannot believe, even now, that the
mass of the Whig party will:give it their sanction.
But we will see.- '
It is sent forth by their acknowledged mouth
piece as the doctrine of the party. If they approve
it they will of course, as a party, vote for Mr. White.
If they repudiate it , they will at least hesitate before
giving it their sanction. We would much prefer to
believe they will both condemn the sentiment and
-discountenance the bileiless, brainless lawyer from
which it emanated.
