frosperity of rittsburb. - , I
I'4e - unexampled prosperity of the "liirtningham"
yArtierica, is a sure indication, thattl Manufac:
pout atal - Mechanicaliinterests of Pennsylvania,
have not .been injuriously affected by the repeil
of the Tariff of 1842, and the substitution of the
Tati'lf:of iB4O, in its place.
All - our ennitfacturere, us well' as the commun
ty, generally, are profitably engaged in their busi
ness, whilst scarcely a Knanuthottirer h able to fill
the.onlers daily pressing on him for" goodsr'sinti
such hue been the case for months past, notwith
standing the cry of ruin! rnin! rsia7 raised by the
Whigs; immediately before and after the repeal of
the Tariff of 1642. The whigs then said.that ruin
us inevitable, that every manufacturing establish-
;nent.in Pennsylvpiis would he forced to stop
work, discbarge their hands and dose up.
Seven months have now rolled round, , since the
adoption of the Tariff of 1846,' and ruin has not
yet come down upon our manufacturers; nor is
there the least symptoms that it will. • But ruin
has, come'oit the whigprophes. The manufactu
rer is doing well, the ~ rnechanic and laborer are
doing well, the merchant is doing well, the com-
mercial interest is doing well—the amount of
freight and travel is unbounded—and the farmer,
whose , inteiest has always been %tilde subservient
to the Manufacturer, by the whigs, is .reaping a
most bountiful harvest, notwithstanding the- de.
sanction of the "home market,:'. %%Via it was
Said could eat 'up all the surplus products in the
country.. . •
The quetion with the whips now is, what shall
we do for thunder? The operation -of the Tani
of 1840, has belied all our prophesies, as much so
as the election of Harrison In 1810, did our pro
mises of "'two noxians a'day and . Roast Beef."
The organ of the Mexican wh,igs, together with
the •Gazette, Journal and Telegraph, are trying
their skill on the war question, and Occasionally
giving Mr. Clay awl . others . a dig fur rating for a
tea and coffee tax. They have_ nothing to say
may about the Tariff of - 1648,and the restoration'
. .
of the Tariff . of 18 . 4. •
The truth is; these Mexican Editors, are like a
certain Prophet, Who after many. year! Of deep
itudA gieat research and lirmisente calculations,
prophesied lhe'tlestruction- of the earth' op a cer
tain day, to the great
,consternation and. alarm of
old women and. children Nifel‘l tbe - Slay came,
and great was the rejoicing an a . ongtt the faithful•
theirProphefs propbecy was about to.be
Hat-the sun rose and set on that day as usual, and
4there Was no end of time." The Prophet re-ex
*Mined his calculations, made other observations
iturdiscovered that he had mode an error of some
inonfltsf and again he fixed the day for the final des-I
traction of all things earthly., 'That day came and I
went as the others, and great was the mortification
of his believers, who, if they had possessed the•pow
sr, Would doubtless have produced the result,
merely for' the purpose of fulfilling the prophecy ,
of their leader,'
After this iecond, failare, the Prophet - quietly ,
said to hiifollowers: my brethren, I
have ,Made a false prophesy, owing to some mis
' take an my ealculatione, but yod may rely upon it
the:day will most assuredly come." . •
Now the . Whigs prophesied a great deal, particu
larly 'about the ruin of the country, and it would
not surprise any body but themselves if their pre
, dietions should sometimes prove correct Men
viliek are conatantlY guessingat results, must ne
cessarily sometimes bit, because they guess every
way, and iflhere is any result at all, 'they mutt
- occasionally be on the right Bide.
It should, however, be noticei,that in view of
the present prosperity of the country, the Whig
prophets, kind souls, have agreed to postpone their
ruin '
thunder until some time in the fall of 1848.
They expect by that time a wind fall of some
kind, either a triumph of their party in Mexico, un
der Generals Corwin and Webster, or a famine iu
otwown country. One of these must take place or
they will be rained themselves. •
Proclainiing their Alms before Men!
'The Telegraph of yesterday contains the follow
ing brilliant effusion from its. editor's pen :
•
Our Governor.—At a meeting, in Eellefonte, for
the•rellef of the starving Irish, Gen. JAMES lavry,
. our next . Governor, contribUted three hundred bar.
rib: of flour. Contrast this noble generosity with
the conduct or the Tories in Congress, by which a
Bill 'offered by a Whig Senator, giving 500,000 to
the, relief of the starving Irish, was killed in the
Blouse.
That is decidedly the coolest thing of the - kind
we have come acrois for many days. It may be
all true that the Tax-on-Tea-and-Coffee-Candidate
for Governor did contribute 300 barrels of dour for
the relief of the poor of Ireland; but is that isola
ted'act of charity to be used by himself and his
political friends for the purpose of catching votes
atthe next gubernatorial election? The good book
says we should not prOclaim our alms before men,
Mar let one hand know what the other doeth; but
-
such is not the course pursuedby our opponents's"...
Gen. Livia is said to be a very wealthy man, and
that wealth has been chiefly accumulated through
• the aid of the protective tariff laws passed by Con
gress. For some imaginary service he has render
ed his party, he is nominated as their candidate fbr
Governor. Out of his princely fortune he gives one
drop to keep his fellow beluga from death by star
' vation. He immediately proclaims his charity on
qta house tops, and endeavors to use that act for
the - purpose of covering a multitude of. political
sins. We have no fault,to find with Gen. Invis
by reason of this contribution—other men gave as
. well as he, according to their -means; but we
khow of no other perion who is turning his char
_
ity to political accourft., We do not know the
amo int contributed to the relief of Ireland by
Governor Sauna., neither•shall we inquire. He
Mei , have given a dollar or a thousand dollars. He
is a poor man; but we believe his heart is as rich
es it is honest and pure. For every dollar given by
Gov. Saexs, Gen. - I - stele is able to give five hun
dred dollars. Those who know the means of
both men, will not doubt this.

the Telegraph IS If Very learned-man. • His politi,
cal astiftenesti•-is only excelled by his s tirofound le
gal acquirements. .HOw, ivili he be so good as to
answer these questions categorically:
Congress the constitutional power to pass
an act ap - proPriating $500,000 for the relief of the
.
poor of Ireirincf? - '
If yea, in• what pail of the Constitution can
the'clatia, be found granting that rower?
If no such authority /El given by the Constitu
tion, would it he right for Congress to pass the bill
alludedlol . •
If the act would be unconstitutional, is it honest
for federal eilifora to endeavor to make political
capital out of its defeat? NP\
Do - you think people give you credit for being

The afterhoon session in the Senate was devoted
entirely to the consideration of private bills.
The Hon. James Buchanan is here at present on
a visit. He is stopping at Buehler's. and will re.

',well, and is as lively and cheerful as if but yet in
the spring time of life. He spends a couple of
hours every day in the Capital, and is as a matter
of course,the centre of attraction.
The,llon.. Simon Cameron is also a regular vi. -

very much. Mr. Wilmot bus alto been here' for

presented; with the commission of maior general
in the army of the United States, I think it right,
to inform you at once that thy acceptance, or re
fusal, of thathigh appointment will depend en.
tirely t.pian public and national considerations, at
which yciu. yourself, will be the judge. Person
ally. I can have no wish for this: office ; but it you
believe that I can be of service to the, country, I
am willing to forego all private consiaerations—
separate myself from my family, under painful
circumstances; resign my place in the Senate,
which isao dear to me—and proceed immediately
to the theatre of war. My only stipulation would
be for the powers which I deem necessary to suc
cess; and these would be both military and dila°.
matic—the command* the army, and authority
to sign Preliminaries of peace, based upon terms
previously approved by you.
I beg you to believe, sir, that nothing selfish, or
peronal, dictates this proposed stipulation. These
is no such thing in it. It proceeds from a thor
ough conviction that, with a subordinate com
mand. I Could do no good in the army on the
contrary, that my, presence there would be impro.:
kilier and Mischievous; for I am known, from my'
public speeches, to disapprove theplans, both of
the !late; and of the present commander—(tlle
defensive policy of one, and the San Juan of
Ulua attack of the other)—and this beino '
known.
my presence would operate as an implied censure
on the tWo generals, and might make me. in spite
of myself, the nucleus of discontent and insubor
dination. The command of the army. therefore,
is the only military position which I could bold iu
it.
Authority to conclude a peace, or at least to
sign the pteliminaries of peace. I deem highly es
sential to success, as it would enable the cornman
der-in-chief to take instant advantage of all pass•
itig events, military or political, to close the war.
Furnished with these powers, I am willing to
make the sacrifices, and to incur the responsibilities
of this high command: but I lease it to you, sir,
for your free and final decision ; considering it 'as
national question, and a new one, on which there
is no commitment, on either side,- anything that
has passed.
Whatever may be the decision, my thanks and
gratitude will not be the less to you for your un-,
solicited nomination of me to this high appoint
ment, nor to the Senate fur its instant and unani
mous confirmation of it, nor the Ilouse of Repre
sentatives for its three times virtual election of me!
to be the commander-in chief of the army in
Mexico',
Respectfully, sir,
Your friend and fellow citizen,
THOMAS H. BEN lON
To TOL rIIESID.LNT
WAIMINGTON CITY., March 9, 1847
Sln : I have given to your' letter of the oth in
stant, the consideration which its importance de
mands.. In tendering to you the appointment of
major general in the army, I earnestly desired that
the country should hate the advantage of your
conceded ability and military knowledge, your in.
timate ;acquaintance with the :Mexican character,
and your familiarity with their language and pó
litical condition.
ImMediately after your nomination as major
general had been unanimously confirmed y the
Senitte,!l carefully examined the question,-kvbeth
erl poSsessed to designate you—a junior major
general—tQ the chief command of the army in
the field. The result of thi§ examination is, Farr
constrained to say, a settled conviction on my
Mind, that such powers has not been conferred up
on me 'by the existing laws.
am fully sensible of the exalted patriotism
which could alone hen induced you to make the
personal sacrifices to %%Mich you would le subject
ed, in assuming even the chief command or the ar
my in Mexico; and / duly appreciate 'the 'reasons
yon hive assigned, and which may, I'fear, prevent
you frdm accepting your appointment idt major
