W. C. RIVE'S OFIINIOX OF GEN. CASS.
Iii 1813, when Gen. Cass was the object of
bitter denunciation and assault from British
editors and politicians, because of his timely
and effective interference to prevent Fiance
from co-operating in the English scheme to
cripple the freedom of the seas, William C.
Rives, now a leading whig, and a Taylor
electoral candidate, in Virginia, penned one
of the most eulogistic vindications of the
American Minister, that the crisis called out.
It was published in the Washington Globe,
of May 22, 1843, under the signature of
" Americanus."' la that paper, ho pronotm
ces Gen. Cass " one of the most able and ac
complished ministers and jurists of which any
country cau boast,,' and ho adds :
"The value of his services to his own coun
try it were difficult to appreciate, even by an
approximate standard. Had the quintuple
treaty been consummated by the ratifications
of France, (and that it vas not, oicing especi
ally to the timely and spirited interposition of
Gen. Cass,) we have the authority of Lord
Palraersloii, in the late debate in the House
of Commons, and of Lord Brougham, for say
ing, Great Britain would have been so Hushed
with the success of her projects, and so em
boldened in the pursuit of her long cherished
aim of undisputed supremacy on the ocean,
that America would haue no other alternative
but war or submission ou the great question
of maritime rights, on which she had staked
her character and fortunes. Submission is a
word not found in the vocabulary of Ameri
can patriotism. War, then, with the great
est maratimo power of the world, would have
been inevitable and with the alliance of all
Europe secured to her beforehand, to back
and sustain her in the conflict. By the bold
and skillful efforts of Gen. jCass in averting
the ratification of the treaty, France was de
tached from the menacing and formidable An
glo European confederacy, and restored to her
natural and ancient relations of cordial co
operation with the Uuitcd States in defend
ing the liberty of the seas. This at once
mi l'i England pause ; and by transferring
to the side of the United States the peaceful
ally which had been detached from her, en
forced upon her councils tho necessity of
peace with America."

K7" The editor of the Miltonian, the
whig candidate for Senator, seems to find a
grpat deal of fault with Mr. Bright' large
nose. Mr. Frick's r.asal appendage is near
ly as great as Mr. BrigTits, although he has
much less to back it. This prominent and
characteristic feature adds greatly to the
appearance and address of Mr. Bright,
whilst that oTMr. Frick may be considered
anything but an ornamental structure. Tt
stands out, it is true, in bold relief, but then
it is not properly supported. Is this another
of his moral features 1 Who knows (nose.
ft-The Miltonian ishighly indignant that
we should call "Benton," who propounded
certain questions to Mr. Bright, through the

"needy adverturer." The Miltonian says,
it is well understood that Benton belongs
to the Northumberland Democratic Club,
There is no such understanding that we
have heard of, nor do we believe a word
of it. No good democrat would be guilty
of communicating his views through the
columns of the Miltonian. Benton, is per.
fectly understood in this quarter. Not on
ly do the author's "legs stick out," but his
head and shoulders also.
Any one who has looked over the whin-

suppose that the editor was trying to smug

Has he become tired of the principles he

certainly something wrong. It is, however,
generally supposed that some hair brained

up pretty considerably with the the esta

some of the leading democrats of the party,
J he Miltonian is entirely dissatisfied with

Mr. Friclc, the redoubtable whig candi

to disbelieve the genuineness, of the letter
of "A JLewis Whig, published in our pa

like to create an impression that this was
also of our own making, Jlui no Intelli
gent whig doubts the authenticity of the
letter. It contained some homely truths
that could only have been known to a few
who had been acton in the affair. It
touches a tender and delicate subject. Hence
we find that the "railed jade winces."
And to show that Mr. Frick does not
doubt the genuineness of the letter, we ask
him if he did not tell a certain respectable
whir of this place, whom he saw in Milton
some days since, that he knew who the au
thor was ; and whether he did not name a
certain individual of Lewis township, whose
respectability or high standing w ith the
whig party he will not dare to question
As Mr. Frick bases his claims for election
upon his morals, past, present and future,
it would be well for him to show his inno
cence instead of evading the subject by af
fecting to disbelieve the genuineness of the

OI R CANDIDATE FOR GOVERXOH.
The nomination of Morris Longstrelh as
the Democratic candidate for Governor, is
hailed with great satisfaction in every part
the State, and the democratic journals
speak in the most encouraging terms of the
brilliant prospect of a glorious victory that
lies before us. That the nomination of such
a man as Mr. Longstreth should meet with
general upproval is a matter of course, for he
possesses in a high degree, all the qualities
which should commend a candidate to ttie
favor of tho democracy of Pennsylvania.
Morris Loncstreth, iu the first place
. i - i.v . t- a
never sovgM or aesirea ine omce oi -anai
Commissioner. His name was brought be
fore the State Convention, that met at Har
risburg, on the 4th of March 1847, contrary
to his express wishes, as declared in an au
thorised public declination. He is possessed
of an ample fortune, surrounded by every
domes'! ic comfort, and his original accept
ance of a place in the Canal Board was at
tended with many pecuniary and sociul sac
rifices. His continuance therein will, there- I
fore, bo only to accommodate the People, I
and not in any wise to minister to himself.
No living man that knows Morris Longstreth
will dure accuse him of holding on to his
place in the Canal Board from any design of
personal or pecuniary profit He does not
need its emoluments -he is above its unsub
stantial honors and, if he continues iu the
Board, it will bo solely to discharge a great
public trust conferred upon him by the Peo
ple, and from which they themselves are
willing to relieve him by his elevation to the
graver aud more responsible duties ot the
Governorship. All the hue and cry of the
Whigs, therefore, that JuJge Longstreth's
continuance in the Canal Board is to secure
to himself the paltry pittance of Three Dol
lars per diem, or to avail himnelf of its pat-
miiage which is always a positive encum
brance will be perfectly understood by the
public, and be no more regarded by the in
telligent Democracy than falls to the lot of
most of the silly electioneering stories pro
pagated by the Whigs.
Free Soil m Ohio A correspondent of
the Cincinnati Globe speaks of the signs in
Northern Ohio in the most gratifying terms:
"We shall sweep the reserve with a rush,
by fifteen thousand majority. Look at it
All the Whig candidates for Congress here
are anti-Taylor men. Two of them, (Crow,
ell and Giddings) are Van Buren men. The
other (Root) is undecided whether to vote
for Van Buren, or not at all ; but incline to the
former course. There are but three Taylor
Whig candidates running for the Legislature
on the reserve, and they will probably all be
defeated by Free Soil men.
The great effort of the Whigs is directed
to the election of Ford. The "Free Soil," or
Abolition party, has no candidate in nomina
tion, and the result is more doubtful. Ford
has refused to declare for which candidate,
Van Buren or Taylor, he will give his vote.
This is a slmnge oourie to pursue, but it is
deemed the only safe course for him. If the
people of Ohio can blindly support a man
without knowing or asking his views, then
we are disappointed in them. ., The Whig and
"Free Soil" papers both fly Mr! Ford's name
THE FOREIGN NEWS.
The foregoing news by the Acadia, informs
us of the decline of grain in England. This
has not been wholly unexpected. The pro
priety of the warnisg we gave our readers a
fortnight ago, in contemplation of such a pos
sibility, is now apparent. '.The improvement
In cotton may be considered, however, mere
than an equivalent to the ratling off in bread
stuffs. On the whole, the news may be re
garded as not unfavorable to our financial in
terests. , C-v ., , ;;, ,7 ,
The chances of a general war seem to be
declining, Austria having accepted the medi
ation of France and England. We hail this
prospect with unmitigated tatisfaoiion. War
is so great a curse, even under its most favor
able aspect, that every friend of his race
would rejoice to see it bapished from the
earth. But this, we fenr, can not be. The
passions of the multitude, aud the ambition of
rulers are continually hurrying nations into
hostilities, and will do so as long as the world
lasts, or human nature remains unaltered.
In Ireland, quiet has apparently been re,
stored, at least for the present. The great
topic is the visit of the premier to Dublin.
We are glad to learn that the first reports
of a decline of flour and (train in the Britixh
market is contradicted by private letters at
New York. Instead of a decline, there had
been an advance of 3s. on Corn and 4s. on
Wheal on Friday, the day previous to the
sailing of the steamer. The advance was
consequent' upon the demand for Ireland and
the unfavorable reports in regard to potatoes.
After the letters were distributed at New
York on Monday, the Breudotuff market
which had been depressed, revived, unci
Corn advanced 4 cents per bushel, and Flour
continued firm at Saturday's prices. The
prospect of a considerable demand for Corn
and Flour for Great Britain is now good, and
although we shall probably we none of the
extravagant prices of last season, the appear
ances are that a healthy demand will exist
at fully remunerating prices for all our sur
plus provisions. It will probably be well that
growers and millers freely meet the demand
and not hold back in the speculative hope of
getting higher prices. The true policy of
this country undoubtedly is to meet a foreign
demand for food freely whenever it exists
at puces yielding a remunerating profit
to tho producer, which is the case at present

Ol'R NEXT SENATOR. r
It is all important to tne people of this
county, that we should have some one in the
legislature this winter who has experience
and influence and can do something for our
interests. .We see by the Baltimore papers
that the stock of the York and Harrisburg
Rail Road has been nearly all subscribed.
This road is intended by the citizens of Bal
timore, to be connected with the Harrisburg
and Sunbury railroad, on this side the river,
so that they can have command of ihe Sus
quehanna trade. We saw a few days oeo, a
letter from an influential man ensaced in
this enterprise, who is anxious, that tho peo
ple of this section, should help them urge
on the work. We ask then should not everv

uige the election of an influential and expe
rienced man to the Senate. E. Y Bright is
just the man we want. He is acquainted
with the whole project ami feels a deep in,
tercst in it. His experience in the lesisla
ture and the leading men connected with this
enterprise will give him great weight. Now
on the other hand, it is acknowledged by
Mr. Frick's own political friends, that he has
no qualifications whatever for the office of
Senator. He is wholly unknown and can
neither speak or write on the subject. Why
then should we sacrifice onr own interests
merely to vote for a stripling, who if he had
discernment enough to know himself, would
feel ashamed to aspire to such an office. The
member of Assembly they have already, on
the other side of the river, and must we also
give them the Senator. Must we for the
sake of party abandon all our interests and
vote for a man wholly unfit. There are
number of other reasons whv we should have
such a man as Mr. Bright. A lets r a
