We have been compelled to Wee the dab anbaeription

and when wetellpur DeMocratic Mends, candidly, that
we can no lcuefet afford to sell the Weekly P.Leezer AND
Defoe at one dollar a yeir.. and must add fifty ealitA or
stop the publication, we trust they will appreciate our
position, and, instead of withdrawing their subscrip
tions, go to work with s will to increase our list in every
county in the State. We have endeavored, and shall
continue our efforts, to make the paper useful ass party
organ,. and - welcome as a pew. messenger to every fam
ily. We 'flatter ourfelves that it has not been without
some influence. in 'produoing the glorlois revolution in
the polities of the State achieved at the late election;
and if fearlesenesi in the discharge of _duty, fidelity to
the.principles of the party, and an =dons desire to pro
mote its interests, with some experience and a moderate
degree of ability, can be made serviceable hereafter, the
Weekly PATRIOT AND Union TIM not be less . useful to
the party or less welcome to the family circle in the fu

for increased encouragement in this great 'enterpriee,
iin4 swig to every Inlitential Democrat In the Rate to
lend us his aid in running our supseription list up to
twenty or thirty thousand. The expose* to each indi
vidual is trifling, the benefit to the partimay. be great.
Believing that the Democracy of the state feel the ne
eseaitief sustaining a fearless central organ, we make
this appeal to them foi assistaitee with the fullest confi
dent,. of success.
The ISM reasons which inductees to raise the price
of the Weekly, operate in regard to the Daily - paper, the
price of which is also increased. The additional coitto
each subscriber will be but trifling i and, while we can
not persuade Oarllakell that the change necessarily made
will result in any diminution of our daily circulation,
yet, were we certain that each would be the cons&

JUDGE WOODWARD ON SNOW-NO TS-
The following correspondence was published
in 1852, duripg the campaign of that year,
when judge Woodward was a candidate for
the Supreme Court. It speaks for itself. If
any one, after reading it, suspects him of
Know-lslothir; i;roclivities. he is too firm;;
wedded to falsehood to understand the truth
Ho". Gga. W. WOODWARD:-
Dear Sir :—The undersigaed members of the
Democratic party beg leave to call your atten
tlini io certain charges now frequently Made
by the Whig presses, against - you, in regard to
your views upon the naturalization laws, and
alleged hostility to the rights of naturalized
citizens. We are aware that '
.you may justly
regard your life and conduct in the high sta
tion you have occupied, and the. boundless
confidence of the Democratic party which you
enjoy, as a sufficient answer to ,suoh calum
nies.
But the charges are intended to operate on
and mislead persons to whom the truth is un
known. We would, therefore, solicit from you
an ezpreesion of your viows on the subjectoif
your time will permit,•not doubting that every
candid mind will thus be satisfied, that by no
act of your life have ybu been justly chargea
ble with having entertained men or measures
favoring illiberal or proscriptive policy to
wards adoptld citizens, on account of the
place of their birth or their•religious:opinions.
Very respectfully, yours, &c.,
EDWIN M. STANTWI,
CHARLIE; Sneltan, '
SAMUEL W. Itiacic,
WM WILKINS,

JUDGE! WOODWARD's REPLY.
Y'rrrsituao, September 14, 1852
. .
Gentlemen : The official duties which brought
me to Pittsburg, , keep me constantly engaged.
My answer to •your letter must therefore be
brief.
From my earliest.youth to this present mo
ment, I have been an earnest and hearty sup
porter of the Cemooratic party, and an equally
zealous opponent, as far as my political action
could decorously and properly go, of whatever
has opposed it. lam not and never have been
a ".Native American" in any , political sense,
any more than I am or have been a Whig, Anti
mason or an Abolidtatist.
The charge of "Nativism" is attempted to
be sustained by a motion which I made in the
Reform Convention of 1887. 'That was simply
a limitation of a motion made by Mr. Thomaa,
a Whig member from Chester county, and was
calculated to compel his party (whOwere in a
majority in the Convention,) to come np to the
mark or back out. They chose the latter
branch of the alternative, and my motion hav
ing answered its purpose, was withdrawn. The
sin of introducing the subject into that body
lies at the door of a Whig, and not at mine.
The speech so often qaot4td: against Me, I
•am not responsible for. It was introduced
into the debates by a Whig reporter, in viola
tip& of the rules of the body, which reqUired
him to submit it for revision before publication,
and which he never did. I made some obser
vations explanatory of my amendment of
,Whovacsa', motion, but that speech is not, a fair
report of them. My other speeches were sub-
milted for revision; this one I never saw till
the book was printed, and r have never ceased
to condemn it:
Paring the session of the Convention, name
.ly, on the 10th day of January, 1838, a mem
ber in debate alluded to the motion, not • the
speech, asindicative of hoitility-to foreigners.
I promptly denounced the imputation there,
in the face of the Convention, as I have done
many, a time since, as a gross misrepresenta
tion. See debate of the Convention, vol. 10,
p. 33., 34.
I have retained the undiminished confidence
of the Democratic members of the Reform Con
vention, several of whom were adopted citi
zens, and all. of them opposed to 'Nativism.
Would this have been possible if dig Whig re
ports of my sayings and doings had been true ?
The Native American party itself. is my wit
ness. Seven. years ago .1.• was the °Waft noel
inee for United States, Senator. The county
of Philadelphia was represented by Natives.
They asked me, whether, if elected by
. their
votes, I would favor•their measures for chang
ing the naturalization laws. I answered them
no, and they threw every vote they, could com
mand against me, and raised i shout of triumph
over their victory.
You refer to statements in the Whig papers
of this eiti. One of them was shown me a few
days ago, in which was a garbled extract from
a letter written by me about a year ago, in
which I repelled the imputation of Nativism
as distinctly as I deny it now. Yet the editor
told his readers that the letter contains an
admission that my sentiments were at the time
adverse to the rights of foreign born citizens.
A copy of the letter thus misrepresented by
the Pittsburg U azette, I send you herewith in
the ./Ceystone of Sept. 28d, 1851.
When men will allow their political passions
- to get the better of their veracity so far as to
impel them to acts and associations like this,
it is easy enough to understand how and why I
was misrepresented by a reporter of the Con
vention, whose motives for doing so were just
as strong as those which actuate my political
opponents now.
Another allegation, that I oppose d Judge
Campbell last fall, ie ac Wee as any other of
the numerous misstatements recently made
against me. I never opposed any nominee on
account of his birth or religion, and I suppOr
ted no nominee last fall more heartily than I
did Judge CampbelL •
It is with infinite reluctance I appear before
the public at this time, even in self-defence.
A.' candidate for a judicial office is, perhaps,
more than any other candidate, required to
wait quietly the decision of the people. lam

POLITICAL NEWS
The political campitigns in the several States
that hold elections during the coming fall pro
mise to be very exciting, both from the issues
involved and the fact that their results will in
a measure foreshadow the result of the presi
dential election in 1864. The issues at stake
are nearly identical with thole involved in the
Canvass in this State last year, to wit : Shall
the present administration receive at the hands
of the people an endorsenient of its conduct ?
This is the question that absorbs all others.
is easy, then, to sea that the campaigns be
fore
ths will be no. ordinary ones, so
runs the feelings of the people on the issue
presented to them. The States which will
hold their elections , are:
California , . Michigan, •
Do:laware, New York,
lowa, ' Ohio,
Maine, Pennsylvania,
Minnesota Vermont,
Massachusetts, Wisconsin.
Sajoined we give detailed 'statistics in re
gatd to the politics of each of the States Lour
tinned above, beginning with the first'on the
list. .
CALIFORNIA.
Special interest attaches •to the election in
this State fro the fact that in 1860 the Dem
ocratic party .split on the question of Douglas
or Breckinridge, and have just united again.
the following statistics show. the workings of
this division :
In 1860 the vote of the State for President
was
Lincoln 38,734
Douglas ' 88, 1 20
Breekinsidge. 83 970
Bell 9,180
From this it will be seen that, although Lin
coln minted the. State by a plurality of 714,
the total Democratic vote of the State exceeded
the Republican by 33,261, and this is exclu
sive of the vote cast for Bell. In 1862 there
was a Sdperintendent of Publidlnstraction to
be elected, and the three candidates received
thwfolloTing votes . .
Swett (B,epublican) 51,238
Steyenaon (Douglas Democrat) • - 21,514
Fitzgerald (Breildnridge)
Swett's majority over both his opponents ,
was 13,907, which is accounted for'by the facts
that the Democratic vote fell stunt of that cast
in 1860 by over 30,000 votes, and also that a
number of original Democrats voted for Swett
under the notion that he was the Union candi
date. - This fall there will probably •be polled
the full vote of the State, in which ease the
Democrats will be quite egrtain at electing
their ticket. The election takes place Septem
ber 2, and the candidates in the field are as
folloivs :

Mr. Fisher, it is understood, has declined
the nomination for Governor; judging from the
lowa papers General James Tuttle will be
nominated in his stead. In 1860 lowa gave
Linooln.a majority of 15,298, .and in 1861, a
majority of 16,608 for Kirkwood, the Republi
can oandidate for Governor: At the election
for Secretary of State last fall, the vote was
as follows :
Wright (Sep.) 66,014
Sylvester (Dew.) ..... —50.891
Majority for Wright
It is but fair to add that of the votes for the
epublican candidate, 14,874 were cast by . the
soldiers, while the Democratic ticket received
but 4,115 totes from the army. • After the elec
tions in Delaware last. year and in Kentucky

Comparative unanimity of the political views
of soldiers as expressed by their votes, or of
peaceful citizens when surrounded by bayonets.

The conventions of both parties in this State
have made the following nominations :
Dimetratic Repub'itan.

Governor Blon Bradley, Bamnel Cony.
There are no other officers to be chosen. At
the election last year the Democrats labored
under the disadvantage of being divided on the
wai question and,,rein two wiadidates ' viz. :
Jameson (war) and Bradbury (peace.) Abner
Coburn, the Republican nominee, was elected
by the following vote :
Coburn, (nep. l )
Jammu, (War Dem., j 7,175
Bradbury v (Peace Dem.,) 32,331
This gave., Coburn a majority of 6,025 over
both his opponents—quite a contrast to the
majority of 4,104 that Vnooln reCeircd over
all his opponents.. If the Republican ?at

victory. The eleetion takes place on Septem

MASSACHtrSBTTS.
This State elects State officers in the 'fall,
hut as yet no nominations have been made. It
will most probably go Republican. There is a
strong influence at work to throw Governor
Andrew overboard and nominate a man who,
though equally anti-slavery, will once in a
while bestow hie attention to White men. In
this event the western part of the State will
assert its claims for the candidacy for Gover
nor, and-very likely .urge its foremost'politi
clan, Hon. Henry L. Dawes,.representetive in
Congress. Election day in this State is No

There are to be chosen by this State, on the

Governor, lieutenant Governor, Secretary of
State, State Auditor, State Treasurer, Attor

The Democratic State Convention will meet at
St. Paul on the 26tb inst., to nominate candi
dates for these offices. .
In'lB6o Lincoln's majority in this State was
9,401 out of a vote of 34,737 ; a year later
Governor Ramsey (Rep.) . was eleeud by about
4,000 majority. Last- year two.:meinbers of
Congress were chosen, both Republicans; their

This State, which gave a RepubliCan major
ity of 20,779 in 1860, last year elected the
Democratic State candidates by a majority of
5,577. This would appear to foreshadow the
election of the ticket beaded by Vallandigham
by a very large majority. A prominent Demo
cratic politician of Ohio estimates Vallandig
ham's majority at 80,000, and says there are
those who put it its high as 50,,G00. Time
will show whether he - is correct in this opinion.
On the 13th of October this State w!ill choose
a Governor and Judge. of the Supreme Court,
for which the following nominations' have been
made
15,817
Democratic. Repub lic an.
Governor G. W. Woodward. A G. Curtin.
Sup. Ct. Judge W. H. Lowrie. Daniel Agnew.
It is confidently expected that this State
will go Democratic by a large mejdrity, owing
in part to the unpopularity of Gov. .Curtin
with a large aid influential portion of his own
party. Further reason for this expectation
is drawn froth the fact that the Denocrats
elected their ticket last fall by a majority of
3,524, notwitbatanding Lincoln's .majority in
1860 was 59.618 over all opponents.
The election in this State takes place on
Tuesday, September 1. The following is a list
of the candidates in the field :
Democratic. 1 rptcb:ic

Tnasmuch as the RPpublioan majority in
1860 was 22,972, and in 1862, 26,308, there
can be little hope of the Democrats. carrying
the State in September, but it. i 3 more than
,probable that their vote will be much larger than
it was last year. "
- • New B ate officers will be chosen in Wis.
consin on the sth of November. The Repub

The Democratic State Convention at Madi
son was one of the largest that even met in the
State. The platform adopted lank year was
reiterated, with the 'following additional reso
lutions! 4,6
Resolved, that we hail with delight some
manifeatations of a desire on the .part - of the
people of some of the - seceding. 'States to re
turn to their; allegiance to the Union; and hold
it to be the duty of the administration cordially
to co-operate with the people. of Such states
for their restoration to the Union with all the
guarantees of their rightB and interests con
tained in the Constitution. :
litcBolued, That while we would not withdraw
our armies from the geld, or in any manner
recognize the so-called confederate States ; yet
if such manifestations should become general
throughout the seceded Statesi•we•believe that
the offices-of peace shoUld should supersede
those of war, and that it would in such event
be the duty of the administration to encourage
the holding of . a constitutional convention of
all the Stateti :to restore peace, •maintain the
Union, and support the'Oonstitu Lion.
The Note of this State at the presidential
eleotien of 1860 resulted in a majority Mr
Lin+ of over 20,000 over all opposing can
didates ; in 1861, at the election for Governor,
the Republican candidate for Governor received
but 8,320 majority ; last year the State elected
"representatives in Congress, two (if not three)
of whom out of the .eix were' Democrats.
Taking this as a basis of calculation, there 1.3
fair ground for expectation that the Democrats
may carry the State this fall.
