says; Ii is not to be denied thai impor
ianl political changes have taken place in
several counties of Pennsylvania, during
the present year, nd indicated by the results
of ilie recent elections, particularly in the
coal and iron regions; and p rhaps ire
Whigs a e right in attributing theui lo the

ibis is ihe ground of their dissatisfaeiion,
tvhy do they expend hupun men who have
exerted themeelvej to prevent Ihe passage
of that law, and in favor of ihe Tarill of 19
