Log Cabin Fare Federal Whiggery,
says tho Pennsylvatiian in 'its ludicrous at

descend and take the pc'opjo by the hand,
talks much about " log cabin fare." It will
bo been however , from tho subjoined, that
their notions on this subject aio about as on
lightened as the ideas of the French ptin
cess, who on hearing that the people of
Paris wero starving for want oi bread, ask
ed why they did not eat cakesshe would,
rather than starve. Iu a Boston paper of
the 20th of June, yv-e find an invitation to a
great Harrison Jubilee, to be held in South
Boston, on the 4th of July, at which a
morning collation" was to be served up,
consisting of the following articles, which
are designated as log cabin fare."
' Cold ham and tongue! do., s'altpetered
beef; do. boenf a lamod; do. veal and lamb;
sandwiches, bread and butter; crackers and

The Now. York Evening Post says that

"Tho "Straight-out Harrisonian" of the
5th June, published at Columbus, holds the
following language, it being tl.o concluding
paragnph of a long cditoiral artielo in fa

"But the banks, as they now stand, re
quire an institution to keep them vi,hiii
proper bounds as lo their issues of bank
notes: so far as experience goes, nothing
will do it but A NATIONAL BANK."
The Federal faction are becoming sensi

tho secret and crooked policy which they
have adopted They have theroforo, by
way of assuming an appearance of bold
frankmss, established a print which they
call the "STRAIGHT-OUT IIARRiSO

the mischief of the non-committal policy.by
coming straight-out for a National Bank.
