If not, attend to it immediately—lose not a
moment. Examine the assesmont in each ward
hiithe city, and each township in the couuty, and
don't go away until you see your name there. The
law. requires cath voter to be assessed at least tea
days befOre the next general election, and pay a
State or COMity Tax, otherwise he will be deprived
of his vote. Democrats, be sure and see to this
matter before the :311 day of October.
Supply Yourselves with Tickets.
We request our Democratic friends in the vari

immediately, and supply themselves with tickets.
This matter should not be.neglected, by any means.
Henry Clay in a Quandary on the. Tariff.
Henry Clay, the "complete Letter Writer," has
been writing a letter to Some cute yankee to
who take this mode of advertising their
productions, in which he says:
"I - confess that I seriously apprehend great injury
to the general business of 'the country, and ultimate
ly to the revenue of the Government. If there
shall not be a large addition to the amount of our
foreign importations, the Treasury must experience
a large deficit. If there should be an addition suf
. ficient to compensate the, reduction of duties, the
increase tpust be paid for by an equivalent increase
in the value of our exports, or the balance must be
adjusted in specie. I have not the remotest expec
tation that we shall be able to effect payment by
additional exportation of the products of the court
: try. We, in the -west, do not believe that the re
laxation in the British system of restriction is go
ing io create any considerable demand for the sur
, plus ofour agricultural Produce. We shall, I fear,
be constrained to resort to the other alternative, in
the event of an excess of'importations, and pay for
them in the precious Metals. I need not dwell on
the commercial disorder, the embarrassment in
every department of business, the wide-spread ruin
which would be occasioned by a constant exporta
tion of specie in large amounts. We have had ex
perience enough of thes.elfatal consequences, when
ever protection of our own industry has been inad
The N. Y. EVening Post quotes from this letter
• of "the'einboiliment," and gives some truthful com_
meats, which places Mr. Clay in a quandary—
proves him at least to he no prophet, however much
of a whig he may be. from having written and spo
ken on all sides of all public questions. The Post
thus.uses up Mr. Clay's prophecies:
We do not know whether our humble sheet ever
falls under Mi. Clay's eye, and it is of little conse- I
quence whether it does or not,since if he will only
look to the record of the market, in any of the news-
papers, he will find his predictions of the effect of !
. the British ports to the productions of the
United States contradicted in the most direct man-
ner. With every successive week be will perceive
• that the prices of Ameiican produce rise; with
every successive week the amount which goes fur
ward to the markets of Britain and other countries
increases. He, and his friends in the West for
whom he professes to speak, will perceive that no
politician ever made a more deplorable blunder,
never .uttered a doctrine more absurd in itself, or
more flatly disproved by facts, than when they
maintained that the removal of restrictions imposed
in Europe on the admission of agricultural pro
ducts from America would not essentially increase
the demand for them. There is not a laborer on
our wharves who does not know that Henry Clay is
in the wrong bete. Nor is there a farmer in the
country-but knows and is glad. to know that the
opening of the British ports has quiekened the de
mand for his produce and enhanced its price.
The very transactions of the last week refute
Mr.. Clay's position. In the week ending the 18 h
of September, the following among other articles
were expited to Great Britain from New York:
• Wheat, bushels 97,668
Indian Corn, bushels 11,169
Corn Meal, barrels 1,900
. Beef, . tcs. 610
Pork, barrels 130
- Lard, lbs. 178,375
Cheese, lbs. 132,012
- Wool ; bales 66
Besides these commodities, We perceive that in
the last three days of last week, fifteen thousand
barrels of flour were. purchased for exportation to
foreign countries, and about an equal quantity of l
rye flour. There is scarcely any product of our
fields and pastures which have not found a readier
and more profitable market on account of the new
and friendly relations of commerce which have
been established between our country and the coun
tries of Europe.: Instead of that "injury to the gen
'eral business of the country," which Mr. Clay pre.
diets, the new system is already producing im
p:lase benefit. i When our own more liberal.: tariff
goes into effect, the advantage of this exchange of,
benefits between nations, we may expect, will be
'still more apparent."
The Gazette says that "the election returns are
now all in from Maine. The majority against
Dana; Loco Candidate for Governor, is more than
5000 l The Whigs have a majority in the House,
and. hope to increase it." Our neighbor should
have told the whole truth, when he was at it.
According to the Portland Argus, Mr. Dana, the
Democratic candidate for Governor, leads his fede
ral competitor over 400 votes, and Bronson is be
hind, an election some 13,000 votes. Instead of
the Whigs havirig, the majority in the lionse, the
"Boston. Post of Thursday states that the Demo
crats have a majority. Although the
candidate for Governor is not elected, yet he has a
large majority over either his competitors, but not
over all. In Maine Massachusetts and ,per haps
some other 'States, a candidate must have a 'ma
jority over all opposition, before he is elected.
'this is manifestly unjust, causes a great deal of
trouble, and puts the tax-payers to no little expense.
The method adopted in this State is correct.

Pimping the Water out of Lake Iliehigan."
We recently saw, in an rasierp paper a state•
ment.tht engines, and other machinery, were be
ini,rniae in this city; for the purpose of pumping
suffieient water out of Lake Michigan to supply
the Min:ibis and 3lichigan CaLlill; as the subject was
hew to Os, wornade' inquiry concerning it, and
throUgh the kindness of a friend we were furnished
with infoimaticin which may interest the public.
The Illinois and Michigan Canal, which unites
Lake Michigan with the Misiissippi, is destined to
halve an 'important influence on the Commerce of
the West. It was originally intended to be deep
enough to float the larger class of vessels on the
. lkes, and to get its supply of water from the Lake
at Chicago, but the Cut-being found too expen
sive for the bond-holders, to whom the canal has
been conveyed, by a law of • the State of Illinois,
for a nuinber of years, the idea was abandoned i —
It was then determined to fetch in a feeder from
Fox Riorr., by a side Cut of some twenty-two
miles, which would have been carried into effect
had 'lathe owners of property along the line, and
on Fox River, by too much greediness to obtain
large coinpensation for their lands. forced the ofli
cers employed by the bond-holders to devise some
other male of obtaining a supply of water. A
gnestionwas started of the propriety of pumping
up the Haters of Lake Michigan at Chicago, to
supply some thirty-five miles of the upper level,
which is eight feet higher than the Lake. This
idea was a novel one; but after mature deliberation
by Capt. Swift, Agent for the Eurodean bond-hold
ers:and Mr. Gooding, Chief Engineer of the works,
and hiS assistants, it was adopted. The engines
and machinery have been ordered at the Fort Pitt
Works, in this city, and are as follows, to wit:—
Two steam engines, each with high pressure hori
zontal cylinder of 23 inch bore and 6 feet stroke,
and; six double-flue boilers, 42 inches in diameter
and 20 feet long; each engine to have four open
top single stroke punips, of 4/ feet bore and 6 feet
The canal is expected to be in operation by the
first day of July next, and one of the most
substantial au!! complete works of the 'kind in the
country; for which much credit is due to the very
efficient, scientific, and energetic Chief Engineer,
W. Gooding, Esq.
Had the "right of way" for a feeder been given
by the land holders along the Fox River at a fair
compensation, they would have had a canal -at
their doors, and their property would have advan
ced several hundred per cent. in value; but by their
avarice they have lost all, and no one pities them.
May not this be a warning to the land-holders near
this city who will not sign a release for the .right
of way" for the Railroad.- Some plan, similar in
effect: to that adopted by the distinguished Engi
neer of the M. and I. Canal, may be devised to
avoid; them and give the benefit of the road to their
more liberal neighbors.

. Here is an admirable work, which has Just been
issued from the press. Although intended for the
use of school's, its contents will recommend it to
every citizen of the State. Indeed, we predict that
no book issued from the press for the last ten
years will be more sought after than this. The

received by the audience, so well, indeed, that the

is not often heard within those walls. This even

entitled the Cricket on the Hearth, are the attrac
THE HARMON zoss.—The concert of these chaste
and excellent performers at the Odeon, was very
fashionably attended last night, and we were right
glad of it, for a more deserving and gentlemanly
company of performers have not visited our city
foi some time. They give another concert this
evening, and we would advise those wishing to
spend an evening agreeably to attend by all means
—the price of admission is only 25 cents.
TAR] rs.—The Lowell Courier reports that the new
Mill is just about being completed in that place,
which will contain 200 looms—The new Hamil
ton Mill is last going up and is calculated for 20,
000 spindles, the new Mill on the Merimack will
run GOO looms, the new Prescott Mills are nearly
ready for operation, the new mill on the Concord
river is also progressing, and there are several
smaller establishments under way and about to be
started'in 'hat vicinity—all the effects of that hor
rible new Tariff.
—The increase of the price of Wheat and Corn,
caused by the abrogation of the oppressive corn
laws of Great Britain, (says the'Baltimore Sun,) if
calculated on the entire produce of this country for
the year 1846, supposing the produce of those
grains to be no greater than the estimated yield for
1845, will amount to the enormous sum of $42,-
443,700! That is to say, the wheat and corn rais
ed in the United States the present year are worth
about forty-tun and a half million of dollars more
than they were before the recent rise of price—and
the recent rise is clearly attributed to the demand
for breadstuff's in Englanc: and Ireland. So much
for the removal of one of the arbitrary restrictions
of trade, which shut out the abundant supplies of
the farmers of this country, to the injury of the
starving millions of Europe, that the few landhold
ers there might live in affluence. is Paz ess.---The Journal of Com

To the Editors of the Erie Gazette.
GENTLxxsx:—The undersigned have recently
had an opportunity of examining the National Sys
tem of Book-keeping, byJOl-1:9 FLEMING, Pittsburgh.
We are highly'pleased with-its arrangement. The
easy manner in which Doable entry is taught in
this work recommends itself to the Retail as well
as the Wholesale business.. The method of keep
ing steamboat accounts, in particular, is worthy the
attention of all those engaged in that business.—,
For brevity, simplicity and accuracy, we consider
Mr. Fleming's Book•keeping superior to any other
system with which we are acquainted, and would,
therefore, 'most cheerfully recommend it to:Teach
ers,,Merchants, Mechanics and Accountants, as a
work well worthy their attention.. We understand
that a second edition is now about being,published,
which will be forwarded to'this place for sale.
Yours, &c., A. W. BREWSTER,
Erie, Sept. - 23, IS-16. -
We are glad to learn that, such measures are
now in progress as will probably ensure the speedy
.formation - of at least a tri weekly line of packets•
between Louisville and Pittsburgh. No one doubts
the necessity of such a line, and it now only requires
the co-operation of our business-men and mechan
ics to put it in successful progress. Self-preserva
tion is the first law of nature, and acting on that
principle, we have no doubt the requisite assistance
will be cheerfully given by our fellow citizens.
It has been ascertained that the sum of $12,000
will purchase a sufficient interest in four good boats
to secure their permanent continuance iu the pro
posed line. This sum it is desireg to be raised by
stock subscription in shares of $3O each, the amount
to be placed in the hands of a committee of res
pectable merchants, who will see it properly in
vested. It will be so arranged that in no case will
the stockholders be responsible or accountable for'
any torsos. It will only require 240 shares to be
subscribed for to put the line in speedy operation.
The shares we doubt not will be taken without de

MURDEIL AT TUE Aursn.—At a camp meeting
near Memphis, Tenn., Mr. Winston Goldsby was

terey. The editor of El Indirador earnestly urges
the necessity of opposing their advance. Robbery
and ruin, he alleges, wilt folloW their steps, which
he asserts are the main object of the invasion.
This paper advocates strongly the cause of Santa
Anna, and Mates up General Parades "like fury. -
The National Theatre, which was, when built,
called the Santa Anna Theatre, and which was,
when he was driven from power, dubbed the Na
tional Theatre, has returned to itsrfirst love, and a
large line marble stone, with brilliant gold letters,
apprises the inhabitants of Mexico, once more,
that it is the Santa Anna Theatre.
Gen. Santa Anna, after attending a splendid din
ner, given him at the Palace of Vera Cruz, on the
17th, proceeded on the 18th to his estate of Enccro,
accompanied by his family and many friends. He
was expected to remain there a week or ten days,
and then proceed to the Capital.
Public festivals were held'in the city of Mexico,
and salutes were fired during all the day, on the re
ception of the news that Santa Anna had arrived
at Vera Cruz.
On the 23d, it was rumored in the city of Mex
ico, that about a week after that date, public proc
lamation would be made, declaring the federal con
stitution of 182.1 in operation until ratified or atten
ded by Congress.
Strong hopes were entertained in Vera Cruz,
about the 28th August, that Campeachy would
pronounce in favor of Santa Anna, and as a conse
quence, that Yucatan would again voluntarily join
the confederation.
El Indicado• states that it is very possible that
Gen. Paredes will be ordered to change his prison
of Perote for that of San Joan de Ulua, and that he
will leave the castle for dome foreign country.—
Senora Paredes had been several times permitted
to visit her husband at his prison, and the papers
from the capital state that he is much pleased with
the treatment he has received.
By:the latest dates, we are informed that Don
Francisco M. Olaguibel, an eminent lawyer, had
been appointed Governor of the State of Mexico,
instead of Senor Gomez de la Cortina. -

but thoroughly cleanie the stomach and bowels
of the mucus or slymy substance which supports
them. Their operation is so g.entle, that they
may be administered to children of the most ten

upon the general health, which have always con

Their metallic base is generally so violOt in its
operation, that the system seldom recoir - ers from

of maturity or actually outgrown it. We know

I_ persons labor under the mistaken, idea that
Goitre (an enlargement on the throat,(:produeing
great deformity, and often death from pressure on
the wind-pipe and large blood-vessels,) is incurable.
This is a very great mistake. This disease, as well .
as SCROFULA, are eradicated from the system by that
pleasant, yet powerful medicine, JAY E'S ALTERA-
Tire. It is as certain to cure when properly used,
as that the sun gives light and heat. All iS wanted
is a fair trial of its virtues,
