Gut. Pierce an.d big Abusers.
•--It seems entirely superfluous to attempt to
prove. Gen. Pierce is as decidedly brave as any
man 'in the country. 'All :the official reports
prove it in the most unqueitionable manner.—
Indeed, General Scott not only admits it him.;
self, but upon all occasions manifests his high
regard-for. Gen. Pieree-ia the disch - argo of the
'responsible duties that:appertained to his post
of; Commanding General. • His Selection of
Gen:Pierce to assist in conducting the armis
tice; discloses his exalted opinion Of his bra
very,eapacity; and judgment. • None but a sot.
flier, in every iieriati of the. word, Was fitted for
that important trust, and Gen: Scott could se
lect none other. • ..,
But there tun two other thoughts that w 6
deem worthy of notice while on this subject:
The first is, that it should be remembered that
Franklin Pierce; nt the opening-of tie Meriden
war, was a private citizen, in New England--
lied Might well, without any stain' on his
eutcheon, have remained at home in the dear
enjoyments of the domestic circle. j The pop
ularity of the war was not so great in New
England that he had neressarilct to leave tone
te invade a foreign country, lie Was net like
the military Officers of the United Slates Army,
hound to go to whatever point they might be
ordered by the gorernmsnt. Yet:no sooner
does be find war declared than ho buckles on
his'armor. His gallant and venerated father
had - stood by the standard of his: country in
the revolutionary contest, it was natural -the
son should resolve on treading in the footsteps
of hia brave ancestor. A coward would have,
remained at home—a coward would ,have given
a thousand excuses for not marching to a dis
tant region to-meet an enemy. But Pierce
was rot educated in a selfool of cowards„he
therefore commendably' gets ready, and as if
to pat down all cavil on this point, leaves New
England in a transport, andaftera sea voyage
of some six weeks, arrives at Vera Cruz at the
most sickly period of -the season. Indeed, his
whole route, whether by land or by he
knew in advance would be surrounded by per
ils. Vet "onward" is his watchword.- Now
he ploughs the sea, and now he leaps upon the
abate at Vera Cruz; the great city Of death to
so many of our gallant Americans. From
thence he pushes ahead; for ho had been told
that, General Scott would not u3ake, an assault
upon the city of Mexico till Ire - ;encamped
where the main army was stationed.
Or his way, the enemy met him at the Na
tional Bridge, and some uninformed' rejudiced
partizans wonder that ho had any difficulty in
passing the fortes stationed there. ;Bat these
mon do not know that all the Mexican bridg,-
es aro constructed so as to answer a defence
against a large force, and the National Bridge
is so eminently so. Nor is this a matter of
assertion: It is known to every maa tvho met
an enemy at that post. Now let us see what
took place at this bridge. Was the General
in any peril during the assault of the enemy
there upon his forces? Let the result of the
,speak foritself. On that Occasion a
bullecpassed through General Pierce's hat; in
the midst of thefight. Here, too, he had the
command alone. Here he acted upon his own
forecast and judgment, and we find him where
the halts were fiying.thichr-st. To those who
know General 'Pierce and aciw saw him in that
fight, after the enemy had been driven from
the fort,,(for the bridge was - virtnally a fart)
with the bullet holes in bin hat, it is unneces
sary to say anything .to prove hire! fo be as
brave as any man in the whole army. And
the merareference to this part of Gen. Pierce's
conduct in Heald°, is enough to show that he
behaved like a true descendent of his, gallant
old father. • -
• The 3lexicaniknew that if Gen. Pierce sue:
eceded in joining his force then on its march
from Vera Cruz with- the army of Gen. Scott,
that an immediate assault would be Made up
on the city of Mexico itself. • ;Everything was
therefore done to prevent Gen. Pierce's march
over the National Bridge, and the defence of
the Mexicans was consequently the more res
olute on that account. ' .
For• the- present we will 'suspend our re
marks hire, that the miserable, slanderers of
Gen. Pierce may. blush over theirlnfainotts as.
vaults, if- blush - they can. The great body of
the people cannot fail to be indignant at the
course of a portion of the opposition- in rein
tinn to his military career in telexico2, and are
waiting anxionsly,t,o'pronounce their judgment
in his favor at the polb.--Permsyirariian. ,

To the Democracy and Citizens
I of Susquehanna County:,
'Pm peculiar position in which the recent
Democratiecounty Convention saw fit to place
me, ',renders it very proper that I should state
to the people of the , county ,what has been,my
eourim in the past, and what it wilt . .be in the
Entire in reference theroto.
l i'My soon after my return from Harrisburg,
fist spring, I Was frequently solicited by men
in ditlerent sections of the eminty to be a can
didate for RepreSentative the present fall.==
The4e friends will bear nie witness, that I re.
peatedlY and uniformly refused , to have 'my-1
nanin used in that , connection--,givingas a. rea-_
On, that I had no\ ambition for that position,
Withl:its load of cares and its multitude of tier
plexities,and further, thatl'had no bend for the
contest it would bring,and no wish to leave my
husiiiess int:orests -at home. Thus =matters
‘ireiti on for Months. . I was appealed to with
iticreaSeit- carnkstness, and reasons placed be:
fore Me of a elinracter tliat I could hardly feel
at liberty to disregard:- It was urged that my
nomination would harmonize the democratic
ptirty, of the county,: : that, in the main, all sec
tionsof the parti could unite in my nomina
tion find support it heartily at the polLs,—that
they !,wished to 1/indicate my- person' and the
course I had purl red as the conductor of the
pi.ess in the eipure of corruption and in de. 1
fensM of the righth rind interests of the pedplo
of the county, 'Without distinction of party, 1
alpinst wrong inOutrage. To these reasons 1
ly yielded . t is far, that if things Were
really zis - represented, when the Convention
should assemble, i would accept the nomina: 1

'inflpenced my nomination at all, itwitsbecanse
of the stand .I had taken in defence of the 'cit.
, izenti of the emintyagaitiit the encroachments
of the' leading spirits of Montrose' • - • '
Now, I maybe permitted to ask, why this
, merciless and unrelenting,erusadeagainst me ?
Why is this "brother-in-law" pat forward as
tho great champion, to assail. my character, de;
'stray rriy reputation, and impugn tiny motives?
Why do I find all the leading spirits of this
MontroSe clique and their 'subjects, ready, to
sacrifithei any amount of time, money, influence
, or. MO, to acComplish my ruin. l',l'lte reason
is irresistible,--it cannot be 'avoided. They
once were as ready tridefend me and"my rep
utation as they are now to assail! both ; biat,
regardless either of their smiles or frowns, I
undertook to protect the interests, and defend
the rights of the citizens of this county, against
the startling, consequences that 're:stilted from
,the conduet , of these men - when 'acting in .a
'public position.. I undertook this,inot for my
'own personal ease or pleasure, for I well un
derstood, at the outset, that I mtlst sacrifice .
both, but because I conceived it a duty to- ,
fend my fellow citizens when outraged, and
Withto teach morthat they cannot thus trifle
With the property and rights of their fellows,
'without being exposed to public censure: For
aving dared to de. thtis---for ' the's! having ta
-en sides with an abused peoplei instead of
Winking'at such enormities; I am now assailed
sno other per Son ever was. Thie is the I con
lusion to' which disintereited. person
rause arrive. This is why the brother-in-late
of the Bank President, is put forth as the os
ensible detraetor, instigated by 1 the whole
force in the back ground.... He mar l deny it as
Strongly as he 'can, yet his conduct, and the
circumstances surrounding it; all convict him
m every. impartial mind. , -
At this.l do nut complain. ' Nen who
aye been, guilty of such grossness, I expect
f'lill follow me as remorseless as death itself
or exposing it; .but I do most confidently ex.
pect that the citizens of this county, who have
suffered . such outrages - in the past from
these men, will rise and rebuke them, as they
!lave done once before, at the ballot-box:—
I In open and flagrant violation of law," as say
the Commissioners who were appointed to in
estigkethe Bank, it was started,, Pursued a
eceptive career till it failed, bringing a ruin
f $205,000, the amount in circulation, upon
omuninitf. • Or at least that amount was out
f the institution who - nit failed. They Were
cry ready to place the blame somewhere else,
ad in order to convince community of their ha
ll noeence, they commenced several suits to bring
the alleged guilty parties to justice.! Whydo
t i bq not do so ? If they tiro so guiltless, why
have they net hid a legal investigation instead
Of being engaged to settle those suits; and thus
' leave community in the dark. Thislthey have
arranged, and now but one one moll:, triumph
ik wanted. If they can prostrate me, they will
then have perpetrated the wrong, prOvented its
letlul exposure,' deprived the citizens Of the
community from meteing out Justice to the
offenders, trampled down the person i who has
eadeavered to protect society from such conic.
quences, and thus have gained'a corepleto as
ebndeney. I coo appe.al iv ith cenfidence to the
voters of this county, andask if sneh a state
If things shall be permitted? •
A few words as to myself. I lad hoped
that no .circumstances would occur-in which 1
should feel called on to defend myself public
1Y during this canvass.. In this I have been
pointed, for I could not remain silent,
t ained to a rock mail permit the "vtiitures of
malice to feast upon my reputation. i
If, in the past, I have not stood faithfully
and defended the lights
und , interests of the 1 7

venality. and warned my, fellow citizens of
its' encroaehments, 'it is because my" judg

We must confess, that, at this day, we nev
er expected to bo called on- to meet such slan

hare'tirrayed thetn4'elt'es'against us, would re
sort to bverythingthat they hid any hope of
making believed ;'fbut-vire di& tudanticiPate
that they would have the' heart to assail us in
this. way, for we. stippcisecl that our whole life;
from boyhood, spent among the citizens of
this county,: wouldbe such a refutation that
no one could be willing to hazard his char
acter ; by' spreading :such a charge. Freak
an early ago, we have been forctil to build bur
own character and our own ferttines in the

it,---men, some,of whom, we wonder that they.,
can have a face to talk about character to the
people of this county. r 1,
From one endthe county; to the other,
has thii slander seen, circulated.- Had thiS.
one neier, been' shirted,' We should have let
others passed, feeling assured that they would
be regarded as metv political falsehoods. But
this one struck too deep to be passed by in si
lence. We point, our fellow citizens 'to iti
complete and triuMpharit refutation, and ask
thorn if they can hesitate longer to roll back
'upon these desperate calumniators, the,tide of
infamy with whiehttheir conducedeservea they
