4re you Assessed?
If not, attend to it immediately—lose not a
moment. Examine the assesment in each ward
in the City, and each township in the county, and
don't go away until you see your name there. The
law requires each voter to be assessed at least ten'
days before the next general election, and pay a
State or County Tax, otherwise he will be deprived
of his vote. Democrats, be sure and see to this
matter before the 3cl day of October.
Supply You selves with 7 Acts.
We request our Democratic friends in the vari•
ous townshipi to call at the office of the Daily Pos
immediately, and supply themselves with tickets
This matter should not be neglected, by any means
A SHORT ADDRESS
_ TO THE FREEMEN . OF. ALLEGHENY CO
MILSON DPCANDLESS AND MOSES HAMPTON.
These two gentlemen are now before the people
of Allegheny County, as candidates for Congress.
The fast is the Democratic and the latter the fede
ral candidate. We conceive it to be our duty as
a pitblic journalist to speak candidly of their re-
spective claims and qualifications for the impor
ant office for which they have been nominated
,COL. M'Cisinitss was born and raised in this
city. No person within. its limits has a more ex
tensive range of acquaintances and friends. He is
farniliar with the wants and habits of the people—
he has evenbeen identified with their interests, and
watched over them with the most intense solid_
tude. In every meeting to promote the moral, so
cial or political welfare of his fellow beings, his
voice has alwaYs been heard. He has sacrificed
his time and talents for the public good, and his
purse has even been open to relieve the wants and
necessities of the destitute and unfortunate. He
has never turned any empty away from his door—
he has never oppressed the weak,—he has never
wronged a single individual beneath the blue vault
of heaven. With a heart as pure as ever throbbed
in human breast, he has ever stood up manfully fo r
the Right, and contended for "the greatest good of
the greatest number." He despises every thing
that is low and mean, and never was guilty of an
act, at which the most fastidious might carp.
Every word we have written comes fresh and
free from the heart, and 4 true to the letter. If it
were necessary we could prnduce the testimony of
hundreds of Whigs, wAnt'W9lll2substantiate every
thing we have said. Atid.ut*lire wehope our
friends will not think it improper for us to quote
the words of a highly distinguished citizen of this
city, in reference to Mr. MCCANDLESS:
Extract from the Sddress of A. W Loomis, Esq.,
delivered before the Board of Trade. in the city of
Pittsburgh, on the 24th day of January, 164 2.
My immediate predecesior, Wilson McCandless,
was cradled and reared amid the objects which
surround us. Identified with the interests, and am
bitions to promote the prosperity of his native
city, the origin of eve!) , improvement and the
growth of every interest had been familiar to his
observation. He had been taught from his in
fancy by all the passing events around him, that
our great manufacturing interests demanded pro
tection. His views on that interesting subject,
hlnorable alike to his intelligence, ability and pa
triotism, and satisfactory and gratifying to his au
ditory, have attracted a share of attention at home
and abroad, which has deservedly augmented his
well-earned reputation and popularity.
Mr. Loomis, the author of this glowing and do.
quent eulogy, is a gentleman incapable of bestow
ing praise upon any, man who did not richly merit
it. He is a zealous Whig, but can appreciate worth
and talents wherever they are found.
Of the political opinions of Mr. McCestitEss, it
is scarcely necessary to for us to say one word, as
they are known to every voter. He has always
been a thorough-going democrat from choice, and
when others have been luke warm and faltering
he has stood at the helm of the good old ship, until
she'rode in triumph over the tempestuous sea. If
elected, Col. 31cCANDLEss can do more for Penney/_
vania intereits than any man in Congress, and in
him our citizens of all classes and all pursuits, will
find a willing, able and eloquent advocate. He will
never prove a traitor to the interests of his constit
uents—he will never abandon his post in the hour
We now come to speak of
• 1 MOSES HAMPTON,
The candidate of the Federal party. This gentle
man is the last coati in this city we supposed our op. t
ponents would have placed in nomination. Wha
services he has rendered to the federal party to en-1
title him to this distinguished make of approbation, l
we certainly are at a loss to know. He has seldom
participated in their meetings, and never took the
least interest in their deliberations. There are
scores of whigs in this county, of finer talents, and
in every respect better qualified to represent the
people Man Mr. Hanirrox. He is utterly despised
by the mass of his party, but through the influence
of a set of cunning wire-workers, his nomination
was secured. His words, acts and opinions, are
but the mere reflex of this faction. As a citizen
he has taken but little interest in the welfare and
prosperity of this great City. He has seldom ever
attended a meeting, the object of which was to pro
mote the public good. He is selfish in the extreme,
and parsimoniously illiberal. He never spent a
cent to relieve the wants of a destitute fellow-be
ing, and never opened his lips unless he was sure
of a good fee.
Mr. Mammy and his friends are now playing a.
'double game in regard to his connection, with M.
sonry. Although it is notorious that he was once
a Mason, yet to secure the votes of the Antimasons,
the cunning. Guetle is endeavoring to make its
readers believe that he , •has been a consistent and
persevering Antimason for the last sixteen years.' ,
The Journal, on the other hand, which represents
the feelings of a different branch of the federal par
ty,. says not a word in behalf of Mx. Haatrrox's
,rt t.„..• - • • -
Annmasony, and we nnderstand the editor private-:
ly denounces his co-laborer of the Gazette, in the
most violent manner,' for the course he has taken
on tltia subject. • If it is true, as. ,alleged by the
Gosette,!that Mr. Hampton is , a good Antimason,
Why in the.name of hone 4 is not his renunciation
'men to the public? Is it of that Character that
Mr. friends are ;afraid it will ruin his pros
pects of election? Will honest men in the whig
ranks tamely submit to such a wicked fraud as
The part Mr. Hampton acted in the trial of the
Mail Robbers in this, city, in 1 . 841, has become the
subject of general conversation in this community:
Bmddee, Strayer and Piaui!, were indicted at the
May term of the Court for robbing the snail at
Uniontown. They were all, particeps criminit—
principals and accesiories. Hampton was retain,
ed by *trayer to defend, him on the trial, and we
have always understood that he received a liberal
fee from . that person; In proof of this, we pub
lish the following letter which we received yester
day from trniontovi•ii, the manuscript of which can
be seen any time at this office. We only give the
initials of the 'writer:
4,4 4 4 4
DEAR Sin:—Perceiving by the Post, of the 25th
inst., that an effort , has been made to cast odium
upon the gentlemanly and esteemed McCandless,
in relation to receiving fees in the Braddee trial—
accusing him with , charging the enormous fee of
$5OO for his serviceae
Upon reading this article in the presence of a
number of persons, kills Strayer, whose" name is
brought up in the comments of the Post, happened
to be present He at once stated tome, and others,
that he was willing to swear that he and his sister
- aovanced fifty dollars to pay Moses Hampton to
take charge of his ;particular case in that trial;
and that Wm. E. Austin, Esq., was acquainted
witlithe fact of his; having paid this amount over
to Hampton. Strayer's sister lives in Pittsburgh,
as I understand. E. M. G.
When Braddee was arraigned for trial, Strayer
abandoned his defence, and became a witness for
the United States.i As an honorable man, Mr.
Hampton should then have declined taking any
part in the whole proceedings.' But this eraltylaw
yer, to the utter astonishment and mortification of
the other members of the bar who were engaged
in the trial, took his seat on the other side as quick
as the shifting of a scene in a drama! The Hon.
[ Iticasan Burma, than whom a more high-mind
-1 ed man does not lire in this community, looked up
on Mr. Hampton'S conduct on that occasion as
contemptible in the extreme.'- In his speech which
was published with the trial, by 11. G. Berford, in
1831, at page 107, he spoke as follows of Mr•
" Mr. B. did not mean to say that there had been
any formal abanddnment of the prosecution. No;
that might be indiscreet. The witness might
breathe too freely. 1 That had not teen dune cm: In
the case •of Strap*, wno HAI) roactct.r GONE
octal, TOGETHER WITH HIS COUNSEL—
DESERTED AND CARRIED HIS ARMS
This is strong and pointed language, and w il l
convey to the reader Mr, Biddle's opinion of Mr .
Hampton, long before he was thought of as a can.
dilate for Congress.
Mr. Hampton, thinking that the sum of S5O re
ceived from Strayer, one of the defendants, was too
small an amount for the services of such a distin
guished banister as he, made out a bill of $3OO
against the United States, the plaintiff in the pros
ecution, although he never opened his lips to say
one word in behalf of the United States, and took
no part against the defendants after his client be
came a witness for the goVernment. If he per
formed any labor in the prosecution of Braddee, it
is passing strange that no other lawyer engaged in
the trial was aware of the fact, and still more
strange, that Dr. ks2tiEnT,the Agent of the P.O.
-DePartment, knew nothing of his services! Hear
what Dr. KENICEI;T says:
" FROSTO:11G11, 3id., 16th May, 18-12.
"Mr. Hamptort I believe received a fee from
Strayer, or at leaSt was to receive one, and I do
not conceive either in justice or equity, that he is
entitled to any compensation from the Post Oiliee
Department. Ilaavis not a copy of the report of
Braddees trial with me, and therefore cannot speak
positively, - nor refer to the page, but I am under
the impression, that during the progress of the
trial, in reply to something which had been said
on the opposite side, Mr. Hampton defined his pcxi•
'lion, and retired' from the case after Strayer had
been examined asa witness."
(Signelby) HOWARD KENNEDY,
Special Ag't of the P. 0. Dept.
Notwithstanding all this, we find by an exhibit
of the Receipts and Expenditures of the U. States,
as published by authority, that Mr. Hampton ac
tually received the enormous fee of $5OO, although
Dr. Kennedy says that neither iu justice or equity ,
he was entitled tdariy compensation! Here is the
item • ' . . •
CO' ".43L-Hatiljtton, for professional
sertfrna rendered in Ilie ease of the
" United Stales vs. Braddee and others,
Ah ! but say the cunning whip, "the govern..
ment was a fool for paying Mr. Hampton f.ftoo for
doing nothing." iWCe don't deny the correctnesss
of the remark; but it was nothing more than could
have been expected of John Tyler's immaculate
administration, and it may possibly explain Hamp .
ton's adherence to Tyler's fortunes after the Whigs
as a party denounced him as a Traitor!
Here, then, we have presented, in as few words
as possible, the claims and qualifications of Messrs•
MCCANDLESS and H.vmsrox for a seat in the next
House of Representatives of the United States.

"MR. HAMPTON—THE_ RENUNCIATION.
• Several of Mr. Hampton's friends have reproaeh
ed us for calling on <him to, publish the ienuncia
tion,of Masonry,whichis is.alleged.to have made
many years:ago, This is strange. We-are told
again and again that he has made Such crreinthei
ation—that it is alearless exposure. of the institu ,
Lion—that be has the renunciation in his office, and
freely exhibits into all his anttmasonie friends who
wish to,see it-s4y,et he refuses to pablish- it. -Why?
Is he ' not an antisnaion stilL2 If , so, surely he
should not hesitate to throw whatever evidence and
influence' he can. against Masonry and other secret
societiestfow. They never -have been--more dart
, gerous than at this MasontY, Oddfellow
ship, secret societies of all : kinds, are rapidly in- -
creasing=growing.bold and insolent-420,000 Odd- ,
fellow's paraded in Philadelphia on the 17th.—
They are to paradehere next .Monday.—The
sons paraded here on last-St.-John's, day—the first
time for many years. There are but few who op
pose them cmenly—and yet Moses Hampton, run
ning as the 4ntimasonic and Whig .candidate for
Congress, declines doiug any thing to aid those who
are struggling to arrest the tide of evil—to pre;
tent these societies from acquring an influence
it Will be vain to oppose. He even refuses to,
publish% renunciation alleged to have been made'
years ago, show ing his own views, and giv
ing his own testimony against such societies.—
Is such a course manly? Is it honest or fair for
one who expects the votes of Antimasons—who
cannot possibly be elected without them—to leave
those who have no special interest in opposing
Masonry to incur all the odium and do all the
work' for him, while he is to receive a seat in Con
gress for playing dummy? Some of Mr. Hampton's
friends allege that if he should publish his renunci
ation, and take an open stand against secret socie
ties, he would incur the resentment and, lose the
support of the Masons and Oddlellows! That is a
pitiful excuse. If be has a right to shun odium
and buy votes by a compromise of principle—by
silence in regard to the evil—when' he is running!
as the nominee of the party pledged to oppose it, l
why should other Antimasons incur Masonic hat- I
red and vengeance for his sake? He is to have the
office and the honor—surely, if he may be silent,
nobody else is bound to speak; and. every Antima
son in the country may do all that he can to make
fair weather with thepembers of secret societies—
neither say nor do anything against them—and yet
be a consistent antimason.
"The Chronicle of this morning contains an ad
vertisement of the Odd Fellows' procession through
the streets of Pittsburgh and Allegheny, on Mon
iday next. Every one of those honest and worthy
men who sincerely believe that secret oath-bound
societies are of evil and dangerous tendency, and
who for many years fought against them. are now
to be insulted by the triumphant niarch of the
members of the bastard offspring of blood-stained
!Masonry; and yet the Antimasonic candidate for
Congress is not required to bear his testimony upon
the subject. No doubt he hopes to be rewarded
for his silence by the cores of those who thus com
bine together to insult and triumph over the
wounded feelings of honest Antimasons, and yet
he is spoken of as the .dotinnisonie candidate!
"Are there no Antimasons in Pittsburgh or Al
legheny with spirit enough to resent this conni
vance of Hampton's friends with the Odd Fellows
of the two cities! It is manliest that. these bastard
masons base boldly arrayed diernselt es against the
ilvinestdicarted Autimasons of the county; and Mr.
Hampton is expected to stand by an indifferent
witness of the triumph of the former, and )et to be
elected by the votes of the latter. Is not that
I rather too much to expect from the simplicity of
the • • - the •
)1.010.011) of coon.)
So well Batt iicd was Deacon White—the
-hushed up - editor of the once Antimasonie
zette, that the article above wouhl not bear to be
men alluded to in the Gazette, least some of his
Antimasortic readers might be induced to inquire ,
about it, suffers it to go unnoticed altogether.
The Deacon cry cunningly think•, that by de . '
flouncing the Pont, and charging the editor with ut•
tering slanders against Mosca Hampton, to divert
the attention of his Antimasunic readers from the
true state of the case. But he will find hitmeif
mistaken, the people :base heard of jfampt o u' s
duplicity, and they ss hale the facts, or know the
reason for this attempt to kin them in the dark,
Backed out ! Barked out!
Just as we anticipated the editor of the Gazette;
has not produced the proof of Mr. Hampton hay - I
ing renounced Masonry, but ignobly hacks out like
a whipt spaniel from his own proposition! He
vauntingly declared, a few days since, he was "pre•' :
pared to substantiate' . that Mr. Hampton has been
"a persetering and consistent Antimason for the
last sixteen years, - but yesterday morning he comes
out and says, that he dues "not feel disposed to pro.
duce evidence to satisfy the curiosity of one who
cares nothing at all about the matter at issue, and
has shown himself to be, not only a political but a
personal enemy of Mr. Ilampton;"This is mean•
ly skulking from the issue. Shame! Shame! Be
a freeman,and break loose from the sixteen tyrants
who hav e got their heels upon your neck, and speak
and write as you feel and think!
Again the editor of the Gazette says: "Vile can I
produce a single respectable Antimason, who heel
doubts that Mr. Hampton did renounce the Lodge!
many years ago. and that he has since been a
thorough going,and consistent Antimason, as well
as'devoted Whig, we will produce the evidence de
sired." This is begging the question, but still we
shall gratify you. Is not Mr. FLEEXOX, of the
I .Ecciting News, a "respectable Antimason," yea, a
genuine Antimason, and does not he "doubt" all
you have said in regard to Mr. Hampton having
renounced the Lodge! Now, out with your proof!
Don't stick any more ifs in to drive us off: We
shall not give you up yet!
We are no "personal enemy of Mr. Hampton."
Nothing has ever passed him and myself, as citi
zens, but what has been perfectly courteous and
gentlemanly. Mr. Hampton will tell you this him.
The editors of the Gazette and Journal being
satisfied that no more capital is to be made out of
the cry of Rum, have with most commendable
grace, agreed with their leaders, the Kew• York 'Fri.
bun° and the " Courier & Enquirer," to poltpone
the ruin of the country, until next spring. The
people shOuld feel themselves under many obliga
tions to these gentlemen , for their liberality and
The immediate ruin predicted by these wisea
cres not having taken place rather discomfitted
them, and the actual advance in the prices of ag
ricultural products in consequence of the new
Tariff; has altogether destroyed their thunder., 7
They have therefore turned their attention to slan
dering Wm. B. FOSTER, in hopes of rendering him
unpopular with the Democracy, and if possible to
I defeatlis election, so as to enable them to pro
claim a Whig Victory in Pennsylvania.
r Moses Hampton's meanness in taking a fee of.
$3OO from the United States; for services never
performed, : has completely durnfangled the Jour
nal, andeven shut up Deacon White. The candi
date for Congress is no longer to be the rallying
cry of the Whigs. The-$5OO fee, 'and the $3,50
which Hampton forget he owed to the Masonic
Dodge in Uniontown, when he I'm:tidied to Sore
l erset County,' is rather too much for honoiable
men to svvallo*. So they « draps that. "

which has been made by Mr. Insetx Sox,
of this place, is allfitted and ready to go_on board
as soon as the ship is launched, She is to be pro

intending the work, and from the energy that he
has manifested at all times to carry out his plan
we heartily wish that in this ship he may be tri:

Her armament for the present will consist of
four heavy 64 Pounders mounted on Pivots, so as
to fire in any direction. - These guns will weigh
10,000 Pounds each, and were manufactured by
Messrs. Knapp and Totten of this place, hrid from
the great strength with which they are made it is
calculated that they will range much farther than
any guns now in use in our navy. The ship is al..
so pierced for a side battery of six 32 Pounders—
which can be put on at pleasure. It is calcula

for sea will be 13 feet.
She has two low pressure Engines of '3OO horse
power each, which are also being built by Mr.

credit to any establishment; her Cylinders are GO
inches Diameter and four feet stroke. The whole
of the machinery for the ship is under the direc

from the many improvements that he has made in
the arrangements of the work and in making ev

all the evils that may have occurred to this plan

respondent of the C•. S• Gazette writes, that the
act of Mediation has been rejected. In the Cab
inet meeting the matter was debated at much
length, and with great spirit; and the unfriendly
expressions of the prominent areakers of the op
position party in the House of Commons, proba
bly provoked some pretty sharp commentaries.—
But the sense of the Cabinet was that the courte
ous tender made by the British government of its
services, required an equal courteouOvyly,
it was determined that the offer itself should be
t:eclined. It is-presumed, therefore, that the dis•
patches of Mr. rakenham by the steamer of the

of the mediation on the part of our government.

- StAaTr.rno Rl7l[oll2l.—The' blew York Sun, giv•
ing the news from ?texictt, says that its private,ud
vices are 130 startling,:that the editors Can icalcaly
credit them'. They aie indeed incredible, tut the
reader will once' rierceive:---
"Santa Anna remained it his farm, preparing to
to lead the army in,person, it is said, against Gen.
Taylor. An order to.this ffeet Was expected daily
at Vera Cruz,- from the War Department, over
which Gen. Almente now presides. Santa Anna
is said to be looking for European aid, to enable
him to "roll baek the tide of tear to the banks of the
Sabine," and the old storx, of . Spain, France and
England being made parties to any treaty that
Mexico may make with the United States,is again
revived at Vera Cruz. ' General- Almonte is the fa
vorite candidate for the piesidency, and no doubt
is entertained of his electiim i in December next.—
Santa Anna will lead`the kirmy, bat will refuse to
accept the Presidency agiiin; and at the end of the
war, if he survives, he proposes to follow the illus
trious example ofWashington and Cincinnatus.
Preparations were making for the election of
members .of Congress, milder the Constitution of
'24. The Church, the Ai'my, and the Bar,. are or
to keep aloof from the elections. Great dis
-1 satisfaction prevails amoiig the Clergy in come
, quence of Santa Ann's restoration and policy, and
an open. rupture is expected between the Church on
the one hand, and the people and 'the army on the
"other. Yucatan has sent in its adhesion to Santa
Anna. The American amy was becoming popu
lar, as reports of its fothearance and liberality
spread among the masses, and ".plnnexatieri to the
United States," we are assured, is the watchword
with the native)lexicanS brat! the northern de-
apartments; and , the EuroPean intervention, which
ISanta Anna is said to be !privately encouraging, is,
looked to by our Mexican correspondents as one of
the surest means of coMpelling the Mexicans to
adopt the principle of annexation in preferrence to
the policy which a EuroPean alliance would force
upm them. Siich are the views of our correspon
dents at Vera Cruz. In the absence of more defi
nite information as to Santa Anna's policy, they af
ford abundant material for speculation on our fu
ture relations with Mexico and other nations." '''"
WHIGGEDY AND DIRECT TAXATIOT.—The D.O
- Democrat, the grat whig organ of Western
New York, seems inclined - to go for direct taxa
tion! What is getting into the whigs!
"We are free to confess that no tariff gall is
preferable to one intleosed exclusively for •• revenue
purposes. We greatly prefer direct taxes to indi
rect, unless the latter can be so arranged as to dos
e ter the productive industry of the country."
The Milldgeville Jour4eal, the leading wbig
gan in Georgia, sayr.-- I
..The present tariff is altogether too high The
whigs of Georgia are opposed to protection."
The Palladium of thiS city, on Monday last.
threw out the following very singular paragraphs
"Let direct taxation now come. The whigs are
as ready for the new issue as their opponents can
Do these whiggies sUppose that they can .drive
the democratic party from the present approved
mode of raising revenue by duties on foreign goods,
to direct taxation, by their blustering? If they
prefer direct taxation. let them advocate it to their
heart's content—the democratic party will be con•
tent with a judicious tariff sySteM.

Ma. HA a emu :Since the publication of your ed
itorial on cite subject of Public Squares, I have
heard a great deal said by out working people a
bout them. There is not a spot about the city
where a laboring man or niechanic can breathe
fresh air, without invading private property.-:
Poi:ail - non is spreading over our hills, every geecn
spot will soon be covered with private residences,
or laid out in private gardens. and the people and
their children will cm long have no plaCe of re
tort on a holiday, except to the crowded streets or
the river landings. Then why Should not'the men
id labor, one arid all, come out for Nuns run
His Perini, ? Let them agitate the subject con
tinually, talk about it in their work shops, and in
i their social circles ; demand the opinions; of can-
Ididates for city offices, and vote for no Man who
will not go in heart and soul for *Parks for the
People."' The time is come Mr. Editor, when
the people Will not submit to that tyranny which
'deprives the man of labor, of the enjoyments
iwhich nature intended for him, 1 mean thi3 tyran-
Illy of wealth, which monopolises ail the beautiful
1 things of the earth. Mr. Editor, you base the
good will of the public in going in for " parks for
tue People." There is not a working !man in
!Pittsburgh who will not vote for green swards,
I shade trees, and fountains, it his vote will have
'any effect towards accomplishing that Object.—
Go on, Mr. Editor, and agitate • the subject, and
keep it before ' THE PEOPLE.
"Good morning to your majesty, how ;soft your
honor is!" as the devil said to the jack-ass, when

0 no, nei danger, of whiggcry making any im
proper use of a triumph; 0 no, not the least dan
ger of that—they never and the democrats
must surely rely on the truth and honor of the par
ty; when Mx. Riddle further asks:—

Reader, did- you ever see or hear of a! man who
had retired at night to his Chamber, alter having
