commrrrnEs OF VIGILANCE—Toe
undersigned, Standing Committee, appointed
by *Democratic Convention of the Bth of September,
1816, have appointed the following persons in their re
spective townships as a committee of vigilance for the
purpose of calling meetings of the Democratic electors
of each township on Satunlay the sth day of December
nest, to elect two delegates from each township to the
Democratic County Convention, to be held on Tuesday
evening the Bth day of December, at the Court House
in Towanda, for the purpose of placing in nomination a
candidate for Representative, to till the vacancy occasion
ed by the death of the late John L. Webb', Esq.; and
also to elect delegates to the Democratic State Conven
tion to be held on the 4th of March next, for the purpose
of nominating candidates for Governor and Canal Com
.... ..
The Standing Committee would respectfully urge up
le the Committees of Vigilance, the importance of the
duties they are requested to perform. The success of
the cause depends in a great measure, in a cordial and
hearty support of the ticket formed at the County Con
vention, and to deserve and secure this suppot fair and
timely notice should he given of the place and hour of
holding the primary meetings, that every democrat who
wishes may be present. And further, we would ask
the committees of vigilance, that they urge upon the
democrats (when met) the necessity of a free inter
change of feeling and sentiment, in reference to the vs
lions matters of interest for which the meeting was call
ed, in order to the obtaining that hiltltlrliOtli concert of
action so necessary to defeat again the various combina
tions opposing the sound Democracy of our county.
The meeting should be called at some convenient
place, and kept open until every one has had an oppor
tunity of voting. •
They would also urge upon the democratic citizens of
the several election districts the importance of a punctual
attendance upon the primary meetings, and the selec
don of active and zealous democrats to act as delegates
who will be punctual in their attendance, and indepen-
dently perform the duties committed to their charge. .

More Mews of Ruin!
We copy the following paragraphs for the especial
benefit of those who were a short time since crying out
Ruin! Ruin!" and busily engaged in depicting the
distress which was to follow the modification of the
Tarir of 1842.
The Chexter Democrat says that "the two large An.
thracite Iron Furnaces. recently erected at Allentown
Pa., by Messrs. Bevan, HuMphreys & Co., of Philadel
phis, were su&eardlTY blowriiesfeek before last by Mr
Perry, and continue to work prosperously."
Tbelock Haven (Clinton county.) Democrat says :
"A company fully competent to the undertaking are
now busily engaged in refitting the Iron Works at Far
randwille, and we are informed will do an extensive
"Peter Ritner & Co. are also making extensive ar
rangements forgoing into a large Coal operation on the
lands of Grafaa & Co. at Tangascootack. All the Iron
and Coal operators in this county are driving on their
ba ',anus rapidly, and no fears ans entertained of their
suecem They seem to care no more about the change
of the Tariff than though no such thing had occurred."
"Saul 81'Cormick, Esq, is putting up a large Rolling
Mill. a short distance above Mill Hall. Although Mr.
M'C. is a strong Whig. he does not appear to be par
timbal', frightened by the Tariff of 1846."
This certainly does not look like a total suspension of
business, or of ruin to the iron and coal business of the
State. ' •
EDITCII . O Cosysornorr.—The Democratic Standard,
published at Hollidaysburg, Pa., proposes that an Edito
rial Convention be held at Harrisburg, composed of edi
tors and publishers of country papers, to take into con
sideration the grievances under which they now labor.
The Standard very truly remarks that it is a source
of extreme regret that many of the country publishers are
so blind to their owix'intentats uto publish long pro
spectors of city literary Fyne for less than the price
of Esan's birthright; and further proposes that the con
vention take into consideration the gross and palpable
injury done the Country press by puffing into existence,
and keeping alive, sheets of great pretensions, but little
merit, merely for the sake of an n ezdurnge."
We plead " not guilty" to this charge, at least; sod
we believe, that if country pacers would adopt a higher
ma more independent wares with regard to city literary
papers, they would find it much to thew interest,
We are heartily in favor of proposed Convention,
and we trot the expression will be unanimous in its

The Markets.
We give below, the state of the produce markets at
Philadelphia, New York and Baltimore on Friday last.
Pateesseeente, Friday, 3P. M.—There was not
much doing to-day in flour, though prices were firmer ;
$4/ wastrecly offered, while holders were firm at $4/.
Rye Flour is held at $n Corn Meal sn.
Gaeta.—Pennsylvania red Wheat is worth 100 e;
white do. 107 c a 108 c. Rye, no sales. Corn, old
Southern yellow, 700 ;no new selling. Oats, 33 a 35c.
New Yon e.—Thd confidence which the present cold
snap has infused into the holden of flour, has induced
them to put up their prices to $5 50 for Genesee, and
some moderate sales. have been made at that price.—
Some 5000 bbls. were sold yesterday at $525, and 1000
Troy at 37/.
The holders of wheat have also put up the price a
cent or two, but there was en =willingness to accede to
the demand, particularly as freight cannot be had. Corn
is without alteration ; new is coming into market freely,
and is selling at 61 a 62 ; old corn is abundant; sales
5000 bushels mixed at 66 a 67c; Northern and Jersey
yellow will command 72 a 73c., and white 74 a 75c.
BALTIMORI.—FIour continues fine, and sales are
made at last quotations, $4 75.
Sco-rr.—lt is generally believed that Gen.
Scott will take command of the Army of Occupation,
and in due time, command the new expedition either
against Vera Cruz or Tampico. This is to be done at
Gen. Taylor's request.
The Ledger in speaking of the probability of this ap.
pointment by the President, says Gen. Scott is a
soldier of tried abilities, and in command of • vigorous
campaign against Mexico, would inspire confidence in
the whole army, and the whole country. Asa true pa
triot and a high-toned man, he must desire an opportu
nity of retrieving the hasty indiscretion of the "hasty
plate of soup;" and the President, asanother true patriot,
and a man superior to low jealousies, must desire to give
him an opportunity. When Can. Worth, in a jealous
pique about rank, resigned his commission, the Presi
dent, mindful of public interest, and in kind considers
tion for the General's real good, ordered him back tudc
ty, and to opportunities for 'winning new laurels and
deserving higher rank. He wanted an opportunity for
retrieving his position; and Gen. Taylor. faithful to pub
lie Interest and magnanimous to Gen. Worth, gave him
carte blanche. Most nobly did he atone for one false
step. Gen. Scott is in a similar position, and deserves
similar chances for recovery. Public interest demand
them for him ; the President, under a, sense of duty to
the country and magnanimity to the General, will glad
ly offer them ; and most nobly will Gen. Scott improve
I them"
novas' 'CAN Lts.—Col. Lusk has proved in his last
Advocate, by figures, that Mr. Wilmot is virtually de
feated, notwithstanding he has a majority of 747 votes
over his competitor. That's an " abstraction" too fine
for mit comprehension. We had always thought the
candidate " virtually defeated" who got the least num
ber of votes—but Col. Lusk says otherwise, and we hope
he will not fail to enlighten the world by a speedy pub
lication of anew mathematical work to be entitled "Lusk
upan.Daboll," in which shall be fully demonstrated, a
solution of the problem in politics, that a candidate may
be "virtually defeated" who receives a majority of 700
over all competitors.
The Col.'s figures chew a falling off of the vote of this
year, compared with that of 1844, of 2584—and he
avers that Mr. Wilmot's . " lota wu greatly increased with
the increase of the 00t8—that is, with a vote 2584 less
than it wee two years ago. We .propose the following
to Col. Lusk, or any of the coterie that surround the
Advocate, for solution:
In 1944, the entire vote of the district, 'accordin' g to
the Advocate; was 13,013. In 1848 it was 10,391, of
which Mr. Wilmot received a majority of 747, and, as
Col. Lusk says, wu " virtually defeated." Now,' if he
could get a "majority of 747, when but 10,391 voteswere
polled, suppose the furvote,:l3ol3, had been,givur,
what would have been biz majority . 1 Don't you think

it shot like a cannon ball, to the depth of five
feet, and then tolled end over end some dis

the engine house to the place where the boiler
was found, to be between two and three hun

In its passage it took off the head of Mr.
William Holland, the fore Man of the establish

three hundred feet from the body.

The British Party
Our whig friends latterly are, endeavoring to
tack the word " British" to the skirts of the
Democrats. They call the late Tariff the
" British Tariff," and the democrats the " Brit
ish Party." This is the repetition of the stale
trick of crying " slop thief!' by the thief him
self. and in these latter days not likely to be
very successful. Suppose we arrange a few
questions and answers, drawn from history of
the past; to illustrate the solution of this impor
tant question : who constituted the British Par
ty in the United States ?
. •
Q. Who opposed the war of 1812 ?
A. The Federalists, as they were then called,
now styled whigs.
Q. Who declared it "immoral and irreli-
gious" to rejoice at the success of our arms
against the British ?
A. The Federalists leaders then, now whigs.
Q. Who got up the Hartford Convention ?
A. The whigs.
Q. Who opposed the hero of New Orleans,
the great conquerur of disciplined British
troops t
A. The whip:
Q. Who Supported the British claim in the
Maine boundary question ?
A. The whige•
Q. Who supported the British claim to Ore•
gon t
A. The whigs.
Besides this the whigs sympathized with the
French, when Old Hickory was maintaining
the rights of America; and now they have tears
and sighs fur the Mexicans whO • are at open'
war with us.
Verily, it requires a great stretch of assu
rance on the part of these whigs to attempt to
shift a title so appropriate to themselves, upon
their opponents, aid besides it shows a great
deal of ingratitude, for' he British newspapers,
since the election of Mr. Polk, have furnished'
these same , Whig Editois with their pattern
specimens of denunciations, against him and
the democratic party.—Someisd Messenger,
ry person knows that the. Whigs. called John
Tylor a traitor. and why did they.. do .so ?
Was it because be refused to sign the tariff bill
011842 , NO. he signed the bill. ,It was be
cause he would not sign A UNITED
STATES BANK bill. This is the reason
why he was a traitor. Before the electioni.
those good. patriotic whiga want nothing but
protective tariff and economy in the expendi
tureof the public money.. But when they get
into power—when they get a. President ,and
Congress:they want nothing but a UNITED
STATES BANK. and the man', who „refuses
them this is a traitor ! Let the Democrat's re
member this and not allow themselves to be de
ceived by the federal party. •

An extra from the New Orleans Picayune, re•

dated Thursday. the 19th inst., gives the fol
lowing account of expedition against Tampico
having started from Anton Lizard°.
The scbr. Millis, Captain Thompson, arrived
this morning from the squadron at Anton Lizardo,
having made the voyage to the Pass in five days.
The Commodore despatched on Wednesday,
the 11th inst.. the Ingrate Raritan, Capt.
Gregory, the Potomac, Capt. Wallack, and the
sloop St. Marys, Capt. Saunders. for Tampico.
On the following morning the .Commodore
hoisted his broad pennant on. the Princeton,
Capt.Engle. and sailed for the same destination.
The Princeton took in tow steamship Spitfire,
,Capt. Tatnall. and the gunboat Petrel, Lieut.

sailed the same day, having in tow the steamship
Vixen. Capt. Sands, the Banita, Lieut. Renshaw,
the Reefer, Lent. Sterett. and the Nonate,
Lieut. Hazard.
Ere this.they have .doubtless reached their
destination, and we pr,esume that Tampico is
already, in , our hands. The Spitfire, Capt.

having touched at Tampico, and communicated
with the Porpoise; which was maintaining the

Wright's Indian Vegetable Pills are a certain cure for
the above unpleasant complaints, because they purge
from the body those stagnant and corrupt humors which,
when Coating in the general mass of circulation, are the
cause of a determinatiOn or rush of blood to the head,
giddiness; low of memory, dimness of sight,' drowsiness,
pain tithe head, any{ Many other symptoms of a loaded

Wright!' Indian Vegetable Pills are also one of, the
very best medicinal in the world for the CUM of indiges

unpleasant symptoms, and entirely prevent any evil con
sequences resulting from a rush of blood to the head, but

Is Tnis MEDICINE !" we exclaimed the other day,
on tasting some ofJayne's Tonic Vermifuge. It certain
ly has none of the nauseous flavor, which one associates
with the idea of physic. Children consider it quite •
treat, and in taking It their palates are gratified, end their
health restored at the same time. Jayne's Tonic Vermi
fuge not only destroys worms, bat carries off the mucus
in which they-are imbedded, and effects a radial and
permanent cure. Every mother knows the prominent
symptoms of worms, such at voracity, leanness, fetid
breath, grinding of the teeth during sleep, paleness of
the lips, itching of the hose, du-, but there is other indl.
cis not so generally recogniied. A dry cough, dull eyes,
enlargement of the ibdottiFi, and many other symptoms
common to Other diseues, frequently denote the presence
of worms. ' If iiteir existence is even suspected, the irer
mifuge should be administered, because it can do no
harm in any case, and may do incalculable good.
JAY 'sExeterOaLler always cures Asthms,—two
or three large doses will cure the Croupor Hives °feline
dren in from IS minutes to 1 hour's time. It immedi
ately subdues the violence of whooping cough, and effects
a speedy cure. Hundreds who have been given up by
their physicians as incurable, with Consumption, Spit-
ting of Blood, ind other 'Pulmonary Affections, have
been restored to perfect health by it. It never fails in
giving relief.
