E. 0. Goodrich, seq., Editor of. the Brad

.appcared in that paper, in, 1846, written by
Senator George Sanderson, of Bradford cOnn

in Judge Wihnot's letter, in every particular.

son, in 1840, we extract the following:
The delegation from this State had it in their pow
er to secure alinost any duties they could reasonably
ask for by the new tariff; but they refused, and with
the execption of Mr. Wilmot,,voted against the bill ;
for the same reason, we presume, that a similar dele=
-gation on a former occasion, e.rcept one; Toted to re
•charter the gaited States Bank; assuming it for
granted that the people were too gullible, to un
derstand their rights, or accept of any explanation.—:-
If Pennsylvania has not all the advantage under the
tariff of 18-16, that she had under that of 1842, it is
Ur own fitult. 31r. Wilmot endeavored to secure it
for her; It was in her power to have but it was
rejected: Why ? Because it was not the tariff of
7842. This is the begin 'ng, conclusion, and the
whole argument. • -

long 9 •
A letter frtorri Judge Wilmot, addressed to EC La
pone, Esq., a member from your county, under date
of Jan. 22d, appeared in the Morning Herald of Tues.,
day hist, explaining his course in Congress upon .the
tariff tluestion ; and hia.viewsi in regard to protecting
the Wan intereats.of this State. It has bad the effect
to bring out a iscurtiloos letter in the Penniylvania
Patritet,.or to-day, from Ex-Speaker Chase, df Sus!
quehamia county, who is here evidently attending to
the inirrests of feenild be Senator Cameron.: assailing
Mr. Wilmot interins of insinuation and distrtutt, with
outrefuting one single position taken by that Igentle
man in , his lettet... ' Another attack appeared strnulta;
neously with the above, in the editorial eolomns
the Tnion' of to-day. Cominm e' front such disin
terested !sources", they,. of course , have no reference,
in any . way, to Mr. Wilmot's support of Gov. Pollock,
butariselfrom att honest desire to enlighten the pub-,
lie mind uponliis tariff views; and from the same
spirit that dictated Mr. Chase, in tyying• to make the
people believe thefore the late electibn, that Gov.
tigler was an anti-Nebraska man, and will pet, doubt
have abitut as Much weight. Instead of answering
the end for which they were evidently deSigned,
these ;unjust attaCks appear to have the effect to
press npon the minds of the conservative members
in both branchei of the Legislature, some idea that
they owe Mr. Wilmot a debt of gratitude, for his 'aid
in brioging Mau t the late political revolution in this
State.: Honest men should come to his rescue) while
such influences seek to destroy his well deserved
