We this day present to ourl)emocratic friends
the ticket formed by the conventions which assem
bled at this place last evening ; and we lee) a pe

exhibited in the proceedings of the recent convert.

in the selection of candidates. The gentlemen
whose names are presented for the suffrages of the
people, are unexceptionable to any portion of the

North Branch C4ital.
We publish in another colnm 1
, the report of the
State Treasurer, in regard to the moneys to be ap
propriated to the North Branch. ' It will be seen
that the most sanguine expeetatiOns of its friends

predict that from its resumption to its completion,
the work will hereafter be push d without interrup

This meeting, heldon Monday evening, was not
as fully attended, as a meeting in favor of the North
Branch should have been, owing probably, to the
mystery which' was about its true object and intim !
tions. These were disclosed by J. C. Adams, Esq
to be, the nomination of two candidates for the leg.

the disapprobation of every sound Democrat pre..

endeavoring to get into the field, a third 'ticket—
whilialivery Democrat present, with one or two
excePtions, manifested their disapprobation of such
a move. There can be no mistaking the feeling of
the Democracy of the . County. To a man, zealous

Whereas the ; government of Austria, in its efforts

WWI) TAcn4.—The Whigs aro, emphatically,
great tacticiansi—that is, in the number of their
movements; but their objects and pretences can
never be concealed beneath their hollow profes
sions. One of the boldest movements, however,
of the Whig leaders, is the present tour of Gene
ral Taylor through the heart of Pennsylvania. lt is
a shallow trick ; and we are almost led to 'pity a
main—a President—who tan lend himself to politi
cians for such small proposes. He comes at a
most propitious hour, when the canvass is about to
open for important State and county officers. He
comes arrayed in all the dazzling glory of Buena;
Vista, Monterey, and Palo Aito ; yet he forgets that
there is a broken-faith ;to answer for ; he remem
bers not that the glory of Bima Vista has been tar
nished by Cabinet tools and party .prostitutions.—
How willingly, though, does Zachary Taylor lend
himself to such men as Stevens, Penrose, and John
son; yet we hope that the Democratic press of this.
State will join in exposing this trick.
These Whig tacticians will learn that their efforts
to retain good old Pennsylvania in their iron grasp
will prove abortive. The glory and fascination of
Military laurels Gave passed away, and the " so.
her, second tholght," has shown the people the fol
ly of their late infatuation. Pennsylvania will res
pond to Tennessee, and the song of her redemption
will soon burst from the lips of her hardy sons.—
Let them 'parade the President through the land ;
let him be feasted and toasted; but when he comes
to intefere in local elections, be will find that " his
arrow has fallen short of the mark."—Ltrnatster Irr

Tax hump or Cusa.—The Island of Cuba is
624 miles in extreme length, with a width varying
from 22 to 117 miles, and covers an area of 37,000
equate miles, being about the size of the State of
Blaine.l It contains a population, at the present
time, of 1 , 400,000 ; of. which about 610,000 are
whites, 190,000 are free colored, and 600,000
slaves. Its imports in 1847 were 032,389,119, of
which $7,049,975 were from the United States.—
Its exports during the same period were 827,998,-
770, of which $12,394.877 were to the United
States. In 1847 the number of arrivals at its ports,
was 3740, and the number of clearances 3346. Its
principal harbors are the finest in the world The
amount of American tonnage employed in the trade
with Cuba is 476,773 tons. It has 195 miles of
railroadilimpleted and in successful operation, and
61 k miles in course ofconstruction. it is well wa
tered by umerous riven, and its surface, except in
the central portion of the island, diversified' with
mountains. Only two-fifths of its surface are culti
vated. 01 the remaining three-fifths, now unused,

genial that it yields two crops a year of many of its

Tea CRAPS ix Marits.—The Bangor Whig of the
Roth inst t says —We have intelligence from the far

farmers o Maine, particularly in the great valley
of the Arnostook, where are fine intervals' and
beautiful "wells of excellent soil. One man living
there informs us that he has twenty-five acres of
bock wheat now in excellent order. He will also ,
raise this year a thousand bushels of oats. Thais.

heavy drawback upon the lumbering interest, al

G. J. BALL, State Treasurer
To his excellency,- Gov. Wm. F. /moms. •
By the fooegoing statement .1 report a balanceli
the Treasury applicable to the North Branctisamd,
of $164,226 13. The Auditor General prepared and
signed two reports tiqoutl'Excellency on this, sub
jets, the first *one showing an unappropriated "ex
cess,"or balance on the Treasury of 52,726 13, and
the second one, an unappropriated balance of $22,.
726 13. 1 could not concur with that officer in ei
ther of said reports and, therefore declined sign.
I could not conscientiously sign either of them
for the mason, that•they fell short of the sum oequi
red by the Act of Assembly for the. North Branch
-canal, by overSl274Xlo, while my estimates, which
I have-earefully revised, showed a sum mom Ann
sufficient to authorize the *commencement of 'that ,
work. - • •
Under the circumstances, I deem it my duty . to :
lay before you the kinlgoing statement, exhibiting
the unappropriated balance in the Treasury,in order
that you may take inch action in the premises as in
your wisdom may be best for the interest of the
The estimated receipts in Treasury, from the
public works, outstanding taxes, and other sources
of revenue mentioned; are based upon 'careful ex
amination of the income from those sources is pre
vious years, and it isconfedently believed they can
be relied on, especially if collections arc pressed
with that energy, whictil am aware it is your de
sire to infuse into the business operations of all the
departments of the Government. A considerable
sum can also be realized by pleasing the collection
of the bugs amount of accounts now in the hands
of various collecting agents.
The large appropriation of overSl,2ooooo tothe
Public Worts , by the laus•Gemeral Asse mbly, will
discharge the State indebtedness thereon, and will
free the Treasury thn coming year of that burthen.
lit consequence , we may solely calculate that no
more than 111100,000 will be required by. the State
Works the tuisumgyear. In this view of the sub
ject, there can be no hesitancy in saying, that .the
State debt May be reduced at least three hundred
thousanddoilars hut year, and at the same lime,
give;under the act of the 10th of April last, the sum
from 11150,000 t 0.111100,00111 toward the corn-.
pletion of the North Branch canal.
It now remains with your Excellency to decider
what shall be done in the premises the present sea

It is to br regretted, that-too any of or young

impressions of government, and knead of taking ,

ing our apprehensions to the contrary, that the re.
port of the' accounting officers will authorize an
immediate tesomption of a portion' ot the work op

be, we have heretofore clearly indicated. To as 0
