The importance of the coming election is. nol

Eacouriged by differences in our party last fall,
tie federalists look with hope, for large accessions

whether the democrats of Bradford are at their post

Commander Carpenter, while forming, a_partof4
the blockading squadron on the coast of Mexico,
was called upon by the French ship Eugenia, to
: rescue her from:Alai:wreck. He, with hie crew,
succeeded, after much Jabot: and afterwards re

whereupon Corn.' Carpenter restored the vessel to
her captain ; she having laid alongside the:iris for
thirty hours. Mr. Clifford, the Minister at Meal
co, approved of Carpenter's conduct. When this
subject was submitted to Mi. Clayton, it was refer
red to Mr. Preston, who furnished Carpenter's state

the correspondence to his Government, wrote an

Scconel—Tn the absence of a syllable from the
real organ of General Tartna's regency. the Re

and quote from the New York Herald, Sept. 19, al
so claiming to be a particular Taylor organ, abbe'
opposed to the sabinet, which says: -
Soon after M. Poossin arrived in this aoeuiry
from France, he "openedor expressed a desire to
open, a diplomatic correspondence with the Secre
tary of State, (then Mr. Buchanan) on two • very
important points. These points or topic; were
Ernst, a more ultimate and beneficial commercial
treaty between France and the United States, on
the basis of a generous reciprocity, which might
increase the trade of the two republies, beyond
what has been of late years. The next important
point was , a claim pat forth by certain French eiti
2ellt in Vero Crot, whose property there, daring
ther , gombardment by general Scott, bad been injur.
ed or destroyed, amounting t0.f160,000, by one es.
timate i or 52,150,000 by another estimate. The
, old administration, that of Mr Polk, received these
, proposit;ons with coarte sy, bat Feferred M Poussin
' to the new cowers, who werel soon to coffie in
with-General Taylor. I
Thus far. so far. On the accession of General
ITaylor, and% the appointment of his cabinet, M.
iPoossin opened the same budget with Mr. Clayton.
!Nothing of any consequence took place on the sub
ject of a commercial treaty, but a very bitter and
sarcastic correspondence was the result of the notes
on the claim put forth for the loss of French prop
erty, destroyed by the bornbanlment of Vera Cm;
under eornmand of General Scott. Mr. Clayton
on the part of our government, refused to admit the
claim. M. Poessin insisted on its validity, and in
terspersed some very ungent allusions to the honor
and honesty of the F rench government in paying
up the American claiths on trance, some years
ago, after the insetting eorrespondence of Mr. Riv
es towards the French government. At this allu
sions, Mr. Clayton took fire, and, . under advice,
made a direct communication with the French go.
vemenent, throio our minister tit Faris demanding
of Louis 'Napoleon that he should recall M. Pees
sin or the American govem9Att would hold his
passports in readiness for hie(cceptence.
To this demand and intimation the French Presi
dent fired op, and has given a negative reply, and
may probably treat Mr. Rieves as we are going to
treat M Poulain. Louis Napoleon is satisfied with
the conduct of his Minister here, and will not recall
him. No alternative is left to the government at,
Washington from the first stand taken ; and of
course, DI, POussin will retam - to France. M. Pons
sin, accordingly, who has been in this city up to yes
terday, went to Washington in the afternoon, and
will reach the capital to-day, to learn what further
steps to take.
This is the whole amount of diffiealty between
the two republics. it is a quarrel about etiquette
or courtesy apparently, but really about the validity
of claims demanded for the loss of French property
during the bombardment of Yera Cita. • Vy two

a doven of oysters to .smooth the negotiation, it

The 140,4 is the most striking.' Aiffien - JOHNSTON
Governor, it ryas announced that no...bank
should be chartered, *lid, all the oki ones shoeld
berestrieted 2nd refortbed. He *as chosen; and
the result was the infliction ripen -the • people of re
number of useless institutions r and the lavish crea
tion of all de g rees of chartered privileges. Just
now, one of th e most desirable objects of specula
lion is a charter. It enables the eapitafiat to-niel
ttply hiscredit and it protects that dishonest man in
the refusal to meet his honest engagements. Who
desires to increase the already vat and overshad,
owing evil I All parties‘in this State are honestly
opposed to such an increase andthough the Whig
leaders are in favor of it, the Whig musses are not.
In HENRY M. FULLER,- the present Federal can

the most ambitious and unscrupulous of these lead
en'. Last year; in the Obese. di, Representatives
at'llarrisbargof which he was Trretriber—he
was always ready to vote for-a Bank or a Cooper
