In 1840, during the Presidential canvases
a committee of the citizens of AlleiW
addressed letters to the several ettn4lll#lo
for the Presidency and Vice Presiden4,
containing interrogatories touching some of
the most important questions involved in
the contest, such as a National Bank, the
Tariff, etc. The Democratic candidates re
plied to the questions of the committee, but
the candidates of the Whigs did not, and
the people who voted for them had to do so
without knowing their sentiments on the
_questions at issue between 'the .
two great parties of the country. it was
supposed that Gen. Harrison, if he replied
at all, would declare "suchopinions as would
suit the views of his 4/confidential commit=
tee," and that they would of course be in
favor of a National Bank—be was admitted
by all to be a bank.man. But, JOHN TY

Tyler had prepared an answer, in which he
candidly admitted the right of all citizens
to call for his sentiments on public ques
tions, and honestly declared that he still
held the opinions he had ever entertained.
that a "Bank of the United Stales wae
unconstitutional, and that he could not
sanction the incorporation of one Without
an alteration of the Constitution." The
letter was submitted to a nenaber Of the Whig
leaders, and they had it suppressed, fearing
that its anti:bank sentiments Would iajure
their cause in a city so

This information we had i.ume flays since.
from a New York peper, and the following
extract from a letter of Eimer A.Wrse to hie
constituents, published in the Madisooian
of the 26th, confirms it beyond a doubt , —

the Bank Question, Mr, Wise says: _,

Commerce, between Little and Wide Wa

for seafaring persons; by a widdw lady,
named Mary Ann Anderson. The facts
connected with the case are substantially
as follows:
It seems that. an Italian, named Michael
Francis, recently sailaliaker of the revenue
cutter Taney, had forisome time entertain
ed a strong attachment for Mrs. A., with
whom he had been al boarder for several
years. She had repeatedly rejected his ad
dresseb. Francis had several times decla
red that.she should never marry any other
man than himself; and to jealously appre
hensive was he that she might become the
wife of another. that Of late he was seldom
absent an hour from the house.
This morning he 'again renewed the
declaration of his attachment, and Mrs. A.
firmly expressed to him her determination
oevet to 'become his 'wife. He was then
pacing the room in an agitated manner;
Mrs. A. was .seated in a corner, near the
window engaged in sewing; opposite, but

[From the Phila. Sp. Times ]
Constable Shot•—lu'orrnation was received by the
Sheriff on Friday, that an attempt would be made
that night by a party of hand.loorn weavers from
the city. to burn down Kemptoo's mill at Mana
yunk. The Sheriff in consequence of this infor
mation, sent two or three officers to apprize the
citizens of that torough of the .fact, and adopt
mPasures to prevent the outraie,;_ apd secure the
depredators. Very soon the I.tiftrate . ^.lown was or
ganized, and together with ali t : ftiaittprough vol
unteers, prepared for the attack: . All the n.en
employed in the mill were armed; small parties
were also dispatched in different directions, to
give notice of the approach of the weavers:
About two o'clock on Saturday morning, a
hndy of some thirty men were seen by rho scouts
stationed bel w, approaching the mill. They
were at first taken for friends, but the mistake
was soon discovered, and scarcely had this been
made kn wn, before they were firedoon by the
assallonts,and Mr. Collins, the Manairaink consta
ble, who had charge of the party, severely wound
ed inflie necit. Several of the other men were
theft hats, some got shot in
teceived a shot in the arm, and
antilli'4.llleabin skinned:: They fired baca
in relgrh,,l4 - almarently without much if any
-efft et. tfieWeaversfinding that their project was
- kitowm-reWrped to the city.
T he
,tottrtvia this contemplated villany, we hear.
was that the mill in question has been manufsc
titriknocis met) as the hand weavers *ere in the
practiee,-of oinking. They therefore determined
thus, efloctutilly to stop off the water power!
Hang such rtscals! The very mill they wanted
to destroy, we understand, has now thousands of
yards mote goods than they know what to do
with, from giving.employment to numbers of men
who might otherwise starve. And yet thrirc.ity
weevers were not satisfied.
