great Republics of this continent e for the
purpose of hearing the propositions which
may be made for this purpose by thecom
missioner of His Excellency the President
of the United States of America, who is at
the headquarters of the American Army.
It is certainly lamentable, that in con
sequence of the disregard of the rights of
the Mexican Republic, the shedding of
blood has become inevitable between the
first republics of the American continent;
and your Excellency with 'great propriety
qualifies this war as unnatural, as well on
account of its origin as the antecedents of
two people identified by ilffir relations and
their interests. The proposiiiou of an ar
mistice to terminate this scandal has been
received with pleasure by his Excellency
the'President, commander-in-chief, as it
will enable the propositions to be enter
tained which the commissioner of the
President of the United States may make
lin• the honorable termination of the war.
Accordingly. the President, Command
er-in-chief, directs me to say - to your Ex
cellency that lie accepts the proposition to
enter into an armistice, and for this object
he has appointed the Brigadier Generals
I). Ignacio Mom y Villamiland D. Benito
Quijano, who will be present at the time
and place which may be designated.
His Excellency also instructed me to
communicate his satisfaction that the army
Of the United States should occupy conve

ing that they will ,be out of reach of the
tire of the Mexican fortifications.
I have the honor to be, with high con

That law was up in the Senate before the
election of 1840, and was-passed in that
body, but not acted on for want of time.—
The.most of the Whig Senators, and some ,
otthe Democrats voted for it. Among
them Mr. Robert J. Walker. At the extra
session of 1841, it was broUght up in the
Senate again and passed, •nearly• all the fur it, and again the
Democrats came to the rescue; and unless
four of them had voted fur it in the Senate,
it would never have been brottglit to the
House, becaufe unless these Democrats,
Mr- Walker and three others, had voted for
it, it would have been killed there, and I
never would have voted for it. But i fit was
an infamous act for James Irvin, a young
and inexperienced member of Congress,
to vote for this bill, was it not equally so
for the great Sir Robert J. Walker, one of
the very pillars of Democracy ? And what
most be the thought of your President, Mr.
Polk, in selecting a man for one of the
most responsible stations in his Cabinet,
who has been guilty of such disgraceful
and infamous conduct? Do they not by
this very course make Mr. Polk a party
to this conduct, and a sharer in this infamy
and disgrace 1"
The lion. John Snyder here 'interposed,
and said he hdped that Gen. Irvin would
-have the candor nrackuowledge. _that Mr.
Walker voted for the bill under instruc
tions from the Legislature of Mississippi.
Gen. Irvin replied :
"This may be so. I do not know that it
is the fact. I know Mr. Walker made two
speeches in the Senate in favor of the
measure, in which, I believe, he says no
thing of instructions, perhaps they instruct
ed him to speak as well as vote in favor of
the bill. But doef the gentleman see,
that if this is even so, it makes it so much
stminger formei I had not only thepersonal
example of the great Sir Robert J. fFidk

This turn of the subject fell like a thun

"that he had wakened up the wrong par

MR. P.ATTON'S BANXittirt,PY...--Among
the other charges urged against. the Whig candi
data, by the leaders of the Loceieen pasty is the
desperation ot impaling defeat, is this—that Cita
levrer; cemma tgllh many of the best and
moit distinguished men of the country, of both
political pada, voted for the law nider which
those whQknui..isagirtuaitely. become poet might
be relieved (eV. papcution of heartless credit
tors—and that ',Lunar', wawa so unfor
tunate as to become involved by the failureiof his
partner in business, also took the benefit of this
Law. Passing by the contemptible hypocrisy of
the men who urge this objection to Gem. levier
and yet lad am worthy of their highest confidence,
Mr. V• 11 111:11111., who mcommentled, and Mr.
W , who voted for, this Bankrupt Law—
we to-day present to our , readers a triumphant
refutation of the charges of dishonesty and fraud,
with which our candidate for Canal Commission
er has been so readessly assailod in Sundry Lo
rococo papers. On the first page of to-day's pa
per will be found a clear statement of the facts
connected with Mr. Patton's failure in business,
his taking the benefit of the Bankrupt Law, and
his subsequent payment of the larger portion of
his liabilities. This statement is substantiated by
certificates of Mr. H ALDRICAN and other respectable
Locofocos, and by names with which many of our
citizens are familiar. It will be seen that although
it was Mr. Patton's misfortune to fail in business
some years ago, he has since sacredly applied
the product of as industry to the payment othis
debts, and anti, too, when he had been relieved
from all legal obligation to do so by the Bankrupt
Law. Mr. Patton has been thus compelled to
expose his private affairs to the public gaze, in or
der to vindicate himself from the aspersions of un
principled political foes. Yei we are in a mea
sure gratified that the occasion for it has arisen,
as the voters of Pennsylvania can now have an
opportunity of board:rig familiar with the stern
integrity and incorruptible honesty of the man to
whom they are called upon to confide the control
- end management of the Public WOO,: '
43°"A very large meeting of the Whigs of V

inst., which was addressed by Gen. IRVIN, Hon.
spee•htes are spoken of in the highest terms by the
"Union Star." Of Mr. Coon., the Star stays,"he
spoke most eloquently of the great Western States.
man, HXNAIt Cur, and rebuked the administra
tion for their feeble and inefficient prosecution of
the war, and their hostility to Genii. Scott and
Taylor. He urged, (in order to ensure a thorough
reform in our public works,) the necessity of elect
ing Joseph W. Patton Canal missioner, who
was both honest and capable. That with one
Whig in the Board, our public works had yielded
thousands of dollars more than they had dune be
fore; and that with a. full board, a sinking fund
n °old he created, whiele - Would soon pay off the
entire State debt and relieve us from taxation,—
And concluded by urging upon the Whigs the ne
cessity of union and activity, as all that was
necessary to ensure our success was, that we should
be up and doing."
A series of exrelleut resolutiorui were adopted
complimentary to Gons. Wrier and TAT Lon, and
the Whig candidates, and expressive of Whig
principles. The following were also adopted :
Resolved, That we regard the-ti On.
JAMES COOPER as one of the champions
and ex pounders of the Whig faith, and that
his high talents and great experience emi
nently qualify him to serve the people in
the higest stations.
Resolved, That the hearty thanks of
this meeting arc hereby tendered to Hon.
CoorEtt, fur their respective able and elo
quent addresses, and that the day is not
far distant when we hope to have an op
portunity of returning to each of them by
our votes some equivalent for the labor
they have expended iu the support of
Whig principles.
ttACHIFICE OF I, IF E It is estimated, by
the officers of the army, and those who have the
means of ascertaining the grand loss of our Army,
since the commencement of the war with Mexico,
that the bodies of 20,000 men lie mingling with
the soil of Mexico, and that at the present time fif
ty soldiers die every day ! Is Texas worth this
sacrifice 1 Philanthropy looks on this picture
with sorrow and weeps, and Christianity blushes
to think that h was brought about and is now do
fended by pniessing christians, and members of
the church of God.
It The infamous proposition of Mr. Pozz's
official organ to convert the War into a crusade
against the established religion of Mexico, mad to
plunder the temples of religion, in order to real
ize means whereby to defray its expenses, it seems,
does not lack for endorsers among the rank sod
file, as will be seen by the following precious ex
tract from the "Fine:title (Ylrgini•) Democrat," •

Where it is, it is doing no part of the hu

breadiduff people are in a good deal of abuse, for
the fact is certain, we shall have no more deinand
from Europe. One year' has told the story about
a ferclint .demand for oar grain. The ship that

told us the &mine had opened the markets of the

the crops are restored, and that we must eat our

other, Gen. levee, the candidate of those who be

and excusable only in resisting the infliction of
positive injury—who opt Ose this Mexican War as
unnecessary, and waged for purposes of conquest,
arid extatufing and streigthening the Slave /4'11"
totion—who believe it to have been commenced
jn violation of the Constitution and the rights of
Congests, and conducted with an irresolution and
want of judgement utterly unworthy of our Gov

once, arid in such a way es that while the honor
of our country Is maintained, the integrity of the
Mexican territory shall be preserved. Between
these men, it will not only -be the privilege, but
the duty • of the people of Pennsylvinia to chase
—a duty which no one can safely neglect. And
now that the period - when - tide - choice trtote
made, is so near at hand, it is time that the
friencis of correct ptinciplershould be moving,
with a view of deireloping their full strength. Let
an efficient and energetic organization be at once
effected in every tewnithip' in the County. As
the Harrisburg Intelligencer justly remarks, organ
isation ie one of the most efficient engines of po
litical succems. Let every borough, ward, town
ship, and school district be thoroughly canvassed.
Let every man be informed of his true interests.—
Lot them know that the pretended democracy of '
this day, seek to destroy the liberties of the people,
and make them "hewers of wood and drawers of
water," to unscrupulous demagogue*. Let them
know that their agricultural and manufacturing
interests are to be sacrificed for want of protection,
that the pauper labor of Europe may be encourag
ed. Let them know that the policy of their oppo
nents is driving the industrious and painstaking
artisan from his workshop, to give phloem import
ed mechanics.
WHIG.% WAKE UP ! bit the people know
that the proteruled democracy of this day have
plunged the country into a latched war for the ex
tension of SLitZIIT. - Let them know that they
are called upon by their opponents to support men
and measures which will perpetuate the traffic in
hswrailesk, and ultimately lead to a dissolution of
our beloved Union.
WHIGS, WAKE UP ! You are taxed aliesuly
with burdens "too grievous to be borne." Yeur
property, and that of your children, is pledged for
the payment of an enormous State debt, contacted
by reckless and dishonest demagogues, who fatten
on the spode of office, and smile at the contentment
with which the people submit to their dictation.
WHIGS, WAKE UP ! Remember that while
your opponents prate of the ability of the people
for self K ,mermaid, they urge the claims of a man
for Chief Magistrate who has lived upon the hard
earningi of the people, a lile time, to the tune of
whose only return has been, while Governor, to
veto the acts of the people through theirßepresen
tative. Let the people know that their voice is
disreganled by him, and those who are his imme
diate advisers. Let them know that their well cx
pressed wishes are Cleated with irOorn arid contempt.
WHIGS, WAKE UP! Remember that your
political foes are for FREE TRADE—Mit they
have destroyed the American Tariff of '42, which
they at one tittle so highly eulogized ; and have
sold themselves and their country to British inter
ests, by establishing the British Tariff of 1846.
WHIGS, WAKE UP! Let the people know
that your opponents are opposed to extending the
benefits of associated wealth among the poor la
boring classes, and are for confining the Adieu of
the wealthy to the immediate use of its lirseessers;
thereby depriving the man of small capital from
participating in the manufacturing enterprises of
the day; while the Whigs are for granting sets
of incorporation, which Mill enable the poor man
to become a co-operator, and a useful business
member of the community.
WHIGS, WAKE UP! Circulate the docu

Guard against the falsehoods which are industri
ously circulated. to decieve the people. Remem
ber that your opponents hard ahvayi been the m

forget that Gen. James Irvin, your standard-hear.

his might, end with the aid of others like himself,
overthrew this measure. Don't forget that at the
last Congress, these patent democrats united their
whole fon* to fasten the tax upon the poor, and
signally failed.
WHIGS, WAKE OF! Don't go to sleep
now ! You are on the eve of a great battle, in
which the question of human rights is involved.—

TRIE WAR—Waste of Human Life.—
Of all the incidents which go to illustrate
the horrors of war, we have seen none
which presents them to the mind in a more
striking and powerful manner than the
present condition of the South Ciroline
regiment of volunteers. They left their
homes six mouths ago, about 800 Strong:
of this number 140 "died at Vera Ott' of
on .the march to Puebla; 860 were lift sick
in the various hospitals. _About 278 were
int a condition to fight in. the late battles,
arid of these 187 (including' their gallant
Cblol►el, Pierce M. Butler) were killed'
or Wounded, leaving a meagre remit:int of
136, a moiety of whom-may yet perhaps

and departure for the seat Of war.
