It lies nut yet destroyed them; but for

Topean famine has, for a time, buoyed us

JOSEPH W. Pervox.--The following
article is taken from the Pittsburg Chroni
cle, a neutral paper, and we commend it.
to the perusal of the candid and honest of
all parties. It is a brief, comprehensive
and eloquent defence of the character of Jo- .
aseit W. PArroN, Esq.; against the slan
ders of a corrupt Locatimo press :
"A gentleman who is now' a candidate
for Canal Commissioner was once so poor
as to be unable to pay some debts which
be had contracted. He was in conse
quence of his poverty compelled to take
the benefit of the Bankrupt Law—a resort
which thousands of honest men were driv
en to before him. Is not the humiliation
which an honest, but unfortunate man ex
periences by the reverses which overtake
him sutheiently paiaful without every
heartless wretch who edits a newspaper
throwing his misfortune into his teeth ?
What justification can any man or any
thing offer for grossly assailing one whom
poverty has placed within his reach ? Mr.
Patton is poor, very poiar, but his honesty
has never been questioned. Those who
are blinded by party rancor, should at least
remember that there are some who are
bound to the unfortunate by every sympa
thy of the human heart, and respect for
their feelings, independent of one's own
manhood, should confine villainy itself to
at least. the truth while giving vent to the
feeling of its malignant heart. "

to sob bitterly, until at length she exclaim
ed: "My father and mother have been ta

with a view of relieving her, and then said:
"I will be to you a father, and my wife
(and no man has a better one) will greet
you with a mother's smiles.' He then
took her by the hand and carried her to

• STARTLING/ = DEVETAIPEMENT&--A.
bomb has been exploded within a few weeks in the
camp of our Political opponents, which thraldom
to matter to the winds what little of harmony nay
have remained among them. It may be rectilket.;
ad that a Lecofoct; 144, called the .I:htmem;atia
Champion," was stetted in Hanisbergin 1844, to
advocate the nomination-of-Mr. Savest, In oppo
mitten to Mt. Men mese arm, se the Locofixo candi
date for Governor, and that the "Champion" was
continued even alter the nomination of the latter,
and teemed - with the most bitter assaults upon Mn
Muntssaceo and his friends, The object of the
Champion was to defeat the election of Mr. Mxh-
lenbwg, and it was continued to be published until
the day of hls death, •
Circumstances, lidely coming to light, induced
the friendo_ofMr. Mohlenburg to inspect tbat the
"Champion" was sustained by Mr. Shunk, and
that the articles in it were written by several of his
confidential friends. These suspicions, it seems,
were too well founded. Mr. James B, Crangle,
A. Sprigmettr . H. Sprigman, (oil Locofoccaltta
published and edited the "Champion," upon being'
appealed to by Mr. Muhlctiburg's friends, have
made a full statement in regard the matter, and
certify THAT THE PAPER WAS UNDER
THE CONTROL OF MR. BHUNK AND HIS
FRIENDS, and that the principal articlas
written by JEREZ HILLER, HENRY PCTRIKEN, J.
Settle, end other persons; now connected with
Sauces administration I '
The statement of the publishers of the "Champ
ion" a endorsed by Dr. SETH Sztreecnr, who
will be recognized as one of the most prominent
Locofocos in the State, having 'occupied the impor
tant posts of Marshall of Northern Pennsylvania
under Mr. Van Buren, Chairmin of Democratic
State Committees, State Librarian repeatedly cho
sen by his Democratic associates, Secretary of the
celebrated Lewistown Convention which first pla
ced Mr, Muhlenberg in nomination for Governor
in 1835, and Chairman of the Committee to in
form him of his nomination, Delegate of tho lath
Congressional district to the Democratic National
Convention in 1844 which nominated Mr. Folk,
and in fact one of the most active, zealous and con
sistent of his party. Dr. SALT sir a r impeding
that Mr. Sou azt had alittle too much to do with
the "Champion," undertook an investigation of the
matter, in the course of which he was put in pos
session of the onto irr•t. 111•NUECRIPT4 of the
abusive articles published in the "Champion," and
finding them to be in the hand-writing of Messrs.
Miller, Petriken, Seiler, and others, has appeared
in a.card to the friends of Mr. Muirtior enno, ful
ly endorsing the statements furnished by the
publishers of the "Champion," and publishes a
number of extracts from the OSIUINAL Maim-
It is scarcely necessary to say that these singu
lar developentents have produced much sensation
among the friends of Mr Muldenburg, who, of
course, can scarcely he expected to givextheir sup
port to Um roviters_of-their decaaietbuldianlized
It may be proper to state that Messrs. Miller and
Petriken, with the view of saving. it possible, the
tottering fortunes of old Hunkerism in the State ,
have met these statements with a bold and un
blushing denial; but Dr. Salisbury holds the man
uscripts in Their hand-writing, and the publishers
of't% paper hays followed up their statements by
MAKING OATH AS TO ITS TRUTH.
THE PROSPECT.—As the election draws
nigh, says the York Republican, we feel more limn
ever aosured that it rests with the Whigs alone to
determine ieho shall he the next Governor of Penn
sylvania. The intelligence from every section of
the State is most cheering. The Centre and the
North will speak in favor of Gen. farts trumpet
tongued. The Tariff Democrats of the State will
not fail again to rebuke the faithless leaders who
DECEIVED and BETRAYED them 3 years
ago. IV - SHUN Kis t his day a defeated earulidate,
IF THE WHIGS WILL DO THEIR DUTY !
Nothing but their apathy or delinquency can re
elect him. Will they render him "aid and com
fort" when so large a imrtion of his own party are
done with him, and ready to stamp the seal of
their condemnation upon him 1 The friends of
Mr. Shook are themselves very well aware of his
desperate condition. To such extremities are they
driven, that they are said to have actually attempt
ed to form a coat/ion with the Nahres in the city of
Philadelphia, proposing to vote the ticket of the
latter For Mayor, if they would vote for Saes* !
Thus these pretendgd exclusive friends of our Nu.
turalized Citizens are asking for assistance from
the very men whom they stigmatized as "Churrh
burners . ' in 1844. All will not do, however; the
scalene( is already passed, and will be executed upon
them 04 Tuesday week, if the Whip do not hold
back the hands which are rained to strike.
"TERMING ki nureraY.—On the line of the
Providence and Worcester railroad, there are twen
ty stopping places or way stations; 94 cotton
mills; 307,0006 spindles; 7.093 looms; making
1,197.800 yards of cotton cloth per week; 22 wool
en mills; 81 sets of woolen machinery ; 4 scythe
works, and 90 machine shops. • The read is a frac
tion over 43 miles long, and will ho in operation
by the last of this month."
arThat is in "Irankisa4ruul," where intelli
gent freemen will not permit themselves to be
humbugged by political demagogues, with senseless
denunciations of "soulless corporations," "charter
ed-monopolies," and "bloated capitafists,"—where
W hig 'Governors, instead of crushing industry SW
enterprise by vetoing Bills for the erection of "Cot
ton Mills,"":lliningCompanies" and "Woolen Fac
tories," do all they can to bring into being and fos
ter these establishments, In order that healthful, re
neunelating employment may be secured for mime
less men and women, boys and girls, veto must
otherwise suffer keenly front "the chill wants of
penury." And so it will bo in Pennsylvania,
when the people shall have discarded the dome
egues whose only 'care is to secure for themselves
favor and patronage, and place the reigns of Gov
ernment in the hinds of men pledged to the pro.
tection and fostering of Home Industry.

we find iu its notice of the recent Whig meeting in

not a word of reproach against the perso

Law," as some people call it, was discus

went with him in sustaining the bill, one
of whom was Robertk Walker:- - Forour

mere eleetioneering humbug. What has
it, we ask, to do with the election of Fran
