most earnestly itiOirst asking : aid from the:
Legisture. -Itl f but agew years since,
On, of anmedusetts,in vetoing
Gov. inc
an ect i r.of private ncorporatioo, said in sub
stance, thatthatate was delivered; bound
hand and foot in the power of such asso

incorporations shuld be made for smelting
iron, why should not millers and farmers
have their mills -add farm incorporated, that
they may try thir favorite experiments,
without danger t their general estate ?
Agriculture is the most interesting and , the
most important illness of the country;
and it is precisely a necessary that cam
parties should be formed for Agriculture,
as fur the smelting of iron ore. Experience
has proved, that 1 individual enterprise and
competition Mode, are necessary to con-
duet - Agriculture:to the highest degree of,
perfection; and Ithis is the resu't of what .
Political cono y has termed " Division ,
of Labor" —an . ngredierit, which she has
deemed essentis y necessary to permanent
prosperity. T . re is certainly something
very plausiblen the projects which we
see daily before he Legislature, and in the
results they pretend to produce ; but a
little examination may convince us, that
these projects cipsult rather individual ag
grandizement, han the public welfare.—
Ar.d that these results may be obtained
equally as welt With far less expense.
Some enterpises there doubtless are, of
such , magnitud as to render combination
neceseiry, butoleos it man be shown that
the erection o an anthracite furnace re
quires means gteater than individual wealth
can afford, no ergument can be drawn in
favor of the incorporations of which, I have
spoken, from the beneficial results of in

way by which the best results may bemost

The iron arid the coal trades, and the
manufactures i which th ese articles are
employed, are apidly increasing in impor-
tance, and adv racing towards perfection.
What has beeu dune, has been done chief-,
ly by indivtduahs, and cart, any one look a
round upon did results of the last few years
—results achieved amid all the difficulties
which beset new undertakings, and amid
the evils t h at a ruinous policy has brought
upon the country, and doubt that private
enterprise will lie sufficient for the future ?
As far as the state of the times will per.
mit, the iron nosiness is prosperous and
improying; all iwe ask of 4116 Legislature,
is that they will let us Slone; we petition
themfor no neiv enactment in our favour,
but our earnest remiest is', that not to tools
fy the cupidity lof speculators ; not to serve
party `purposerd or to gratify party favour

The writeri i f this article, is both an iron
master and th owner of coal lands, and
after several yciar's acquaintance with.the
subject in all its details, he writes from a
firm convictioni, that any Legislative inter

embarrass and retard the business, the

unhesitatingly pronounce it superior to any

is still a mere important consideration is,
that this cloth, we understand, can be ma

than in Europe on the old spinning and
weaving plan. The carpeLis beautifid—
the body appears as tough as so much lea-
Aber, and the figures are very rich; but we
would not like to promise their durability,

greatest advantage of this carpeting, how
ever, is yet to be - told—it is •this that it
can be manufactured and' sold for about
half the price that forei and domestic

The Policy of the Vas Bui•en Party,its
Penns?/vanitz' .—The great unpopularity
of ther Presidentin this st4te, and his yet
more unpopuhir measures, have compelled
the party which formerly supported Um
here to overlook Mm altogether in the
Convention, which recently put in -nomi
nation a candidate for the gubernatorial
chair in opposition to ourresent worthy
governor. This unprece jented act was
not an oversight, hut enact of design, and
many the members of the Convention
have since boasted of this az a cunning .
trick. Knowing and believing, as , they
said, that if their caudate was iden
tified with either the President or. his
ineasnres r there was no use in putting a
manic nomination for the office of toyer
nor against Gov. Ritnert and to carry out
yet farther this policy of theirs, an effort
is making by the party from one end of
the state to the other to create the im ,
pression, that Mr. Porter,' their candidate,
is a tortszavanne in principle? Who
desires better testimony than this, that
Martin Van Buren-arid his measures are
obnoxious to tile people, when his own
party afraid to trust either'?
But the question is, are the people of
Pennsylvania to be caught in this , snare of
the-enemy ? Are they to be se duced into
the support of a candidate, because his
friends see fit to throw a,veil over his true
chamcter and principles? Are they to be
