THE DROUGHT AT 'THE WEST
We learn from a ecatlemm (:ays the Albany Ar
gus) who ha! , just arrived from Wisconsin, that the
drought there has been intense, and that the weather
has never been wanner. It has been swelterintr hot
for the last fuur week;. This will have a serious et:-
: feet on the summer crops—corn, oats and potatoes
must be light. But wheat is very heavy and of a supe
rior quality, the berry is plump and the pulp exceeding
- 4i. white. Michigan has not suffered so much from
drought, as they have had more rain, and it is also rath
er a better watered State. From the same source, we
learn that the summer crops in this State promise far
better than at the Far VGA. This shows how favora—
ble a summer we must have had, which causes our
amparatively thin soil to compete tu production with
the rich virgin soil of the western prairies. We also
learn that the emigration to Wisconsin is so heavy,
• that it is anticipated that the farmers there will have
a home market for every bushel wheat they raise, and
they will thus be able to sell at remunerating prices,
whatever may be the result in the other Western states.

PITTSBURGH, TUESDAY, AUGUST 15, 1843
la*The Gazette makes a very feeble effort to crawl
off from the charge of treachery to the country antima
sons which we fastened on it,and instead ofdenying that
it was leagued with others for the purpose of transfering
the poor confiding antimasons to the "masonic whigs;"
it whiningly charges the Posr with having more sym
pathy for the whips than tho blue-noses. We can't
see how this charge, even if true, is to get the leading
antimasons out of the difficulties they have got them
selves into by attempting to sell the party to the "ma
sonitawh igs." Just look at the unparalleled treachery of
these men. They organize their party on what they
call "distinct antimasonic principles;" they make
speeches, write addresses, resolutions and editorials
denouncing the whigs because they will not join in the
denunciations of the Lodge; they try to induce the coun
try people to believe that pure, unadulterated antima
soary is now to triumph, and that nothing with the
taint of masonry or whigge ry will receive the slightest
favor at their hands. But a discovery is made; we
found out that with all their professions of hatred for
the Lodge some of the speculators in antimasonry
were negotiating a bargain and sale of their party to
the "masonic whigs." When further concealment
of the plot was useless. Mr. Craig divulged the whole
matter, and lo ! the agents of the conspirators turn out
tube two prominent antimasons, one of them former
ly a representative in the Legislature, and the other a
gentlem an whose untimasonry bas never been doubted
heretofore. This is the matter the Gazette should clear
up, and show that it is not as deep in the plot as any
of the other conspirators. But knowing its guilt, it
dare not attempt this, and tries to get out dale difficul •
ty by starting a discussion about the unequal division
of the sympathy of the Posr between the whips and
As matters now stand, and have stood for some time
past, it is manifest to every man of ordinary discern
ment, that the Antimasons cannot make a -struggle at
the coming electi.m. Before the treachery of their
leaders was discovered, it was admitted that the}•
would be the 'hindmost of three,iand the late astound
ing developements were quite unnecessary to settle
Ltheir doom. As we have said before, our only formida
ible opponents arc the whigs; and if it were possible for
the democratic party to be beaten be either of the ad
verse factions, it will be by thsm. All our energies,
therefore, must be devoted against the machinations of
the whigs; but at the same time it is proper to expose
the base and treacherous manner in which the honest
antimasons of the country were about to be sold out,
like a stock of old second hand clothing.
Subjoct to the decision of
TH/i DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION
PHILLIPS & SMITH, EDITORS AND PROPRIETORS
THE OLD GAME.—The Whigs are beginning to find
out—as is generally the case—that their "glorious tri
umph" in North Carolina, is nut such a wonderfnl vic
tory after all, and that thei-e is a great deal more cause
for them to mourn over the result, than to split their
lungs htmaing fur their achievements in that State.—
Stanley's defeat galls them sorely, his unprincipled con
duct as a member, made him their darling, and they
think that ileitis loss the ‘vhig can ha- bent &Fri% ed
of one of its most active champions. In this we h. -
lieve they are right, for to be a good whig tnernlicr•
man must be destitute of every . principle of political
honor or honesty, and in this respect, Stanley was, the
emoolimcnt of the very es setrett of the "universal white
; party." They may well lament over his defeat.
; But notwithstanding that the present aspect of af
! fairs indicates that the result is favorable to the demo
orals in as mach as it is probable that they have tdcc
ted live out of the nine Congressmen, the whi p s keep
up tic ic old _Tame of brag, and refuse foothill: that they
have hi-en beaten in districts, where at first they claim
!od a victory, although the returns show the election
of the democratic candidates by large majorities. They
act on the priaciple of the man who said that his horse
was fifteen feet instead of fifteen hands high, and
when reminded of his mistake, swore that if he said it
held stick to it, mid flog any man who would say to the
contrary. So with the wings and North Carolina. At
first they announced that they had swept the whole
State, but the correct news shows that the democrats
have obtained a majority of the members, yet the whip
still keep up the shout of victory. “They said it and
, they'll stick to it."
The Whigs are truly happy fellows. Give them pen,
ink and paper, and out of the most gloomy reverses,
they will figure you a "glorious victory" with as much
facility as they used to makir princely fortunes out of
nothing, in the palmy days of bank speculation. These
victories, however, partake very touch of the character
of their paper money; when brought to the test they are
worthless and only serve to deceive those who depen
ded on them; while on the other hand, democratic tri
mphs appear like the "hard." solid and certain fur all
useful purposes. and nevelt depreciating from their
riiII.kDELPHIA WEAVERS OCT AGAM—The Phil
adelphia We3VVrA had another "turn-out" for higher
wages on last Friday. They are principally from the
lowci part of the city, and include almost all the work
men in that neighborhood. The papers apprehend sc;
riot's difficulties, as several assaults Loa been commit
ted on persona who owned factories. It is to be re
gretted that workmen shonldbe forced to resort to such
means to obtain a fair remuneration fur their labour.—lt
is unrecessary to go into argummt to show that violence
is of so benefit to the cause or either operative or em
ployer, but we do not know of u single case where re
spectral remonstrance has softened the flinty hearts of
capitalists to the sufferings of the laboring classes, or
whereat) improvement of their condition has been con
sented to by the employers, without a resol ute,bu t peace
able turn out of the workmen. Such turn-outs, how
over, when attended by violence, will always generate
a spirit of bitterness that is certain to settle in a feel
ing of hatred between two classes whose mutual inter
ests require that they should live on the best of terms.
Employers have never found it to their advantage to re
fuse the reasonable demands of their workmen, as they
! have generally lost more by the suspension of business
consequent on "turn-outs," than would be necessary to
pay the advance of wages demanded; and on the other
hand, violence and exorbitant demands have never been
of any advantage to the cause of the operatives, but on
the contrary, always injurious, as it deprives them of
that public sympathy which every cause must have to
be successful. The case of the Philadelphia Weavers
is an illustration of this. At their "turn-out" some
time since, they committed many acts of violence a
gainst their employers, which placed them in the posi
tion of outlaws; and made diem objects of terror to the
commuirk . No one could feel sympathy for a body
ofirien who acted in such an outrageous milkier, and
he consequence was they had to turn into work with-
out procuring redress for the heavy grievances of which
We hope they will be more prudent in their present
"strike," and we have no doubt but their demands, if
reasonable, will be granted.
DEMOCRATS, BE ON TOUR GUARD!—We have been
informed that a publication will be made soon, or with
in a day or two of the meeting of the Democratic Con
vention, attacking certain candidates fur nomination,
and perhaps it may assail friends of candidates who
are not themselves seeking office. We have always
abominated this wretched system of cutting the throats
of candidates in advance of nominations—we have
discountenanced it by every means in our power—and
we think it our duty thus to warn the democracy against,
and denounce such an unfair and unprecedented mode
of electioneering for nominations. We are not pre
cisely informed as to who is to be attacked, nor of the
nature of the charges to be brought out—but we would
caution the democracy of the county against allegations
made on th , - eve of the nominations, or at a period
when replies cauuut be generally circulated. We
hope, most earnestly, that those who meditate this
course will abandon their design; if they persevere, all
engaged in it should be held as the worst enemies of
the party, be they whom they may.
THE SVE-TREASIIRy.—As it is now reduced to al
most a certainty that the Democrats will be in the ma
jority in the next. Congress, the thoughts of the party
are naturally directed to the consideration of the meas
ures which it is incumbent on them to adopt. Time
and Circumstances may, in some mtpects have modified
or changed the views of the party on ether measures,
but in regard to the INDEPENDENT TREASUrty, all
good Democrats can entertain but one opinion—that it
should bo again brought forward and passed. If the
federal strength in the Senate should prevent its adop
tion at the present session, let the measure be persevered
in,—let it be pressed upon the attention of Congress
and the country, until it obtains what it so eminently
deserves, a permanent place upon our statute books.
h e greatest error committed by the admi ui s tration of
Gem Jackson, was the choosing of the State Banks as
' receptacles for the public treasure. Ha I he, instead
of selecting deposite banks, presented the Independ
ent Treasury plan, for keeping the public moneys, and
used his influence to procure its adoption, we believe it
would have been vastly better for the country, and the
Democratic party would not have lost the important bat
' tie of 1840. There would, no doubt, have been hooch
opposition to the measure by those members of Congress
who were interested in the State Banks, but still, in all
probability, it would have been carried, and the coun
try snved fromtho evil effects of the State Bank system.
I loweer, there is no use lamenting over that misstep
of Jackson's administration—he and his advisers no
doubtbelieved they were acting for the best; they had
to proceed, too, without the sure light of experience
which the Democratic party now rinos:!,, and which
will guide them in their en , lnvorF• to at.):l - fr th, mis
take they made in adopting the State 131:1'i
It is evident that no Bank of the United States can
ever receive tie- sanction of the people. Every project
under that name ha 3 been again and again rejected
by Congress or the President, and the people have sus
tained such rejections trimmOantly. The measure of
a National Binh lut3 Elrod no better under the names of
"Fiscal Corporation" or "Exchequer." Each and all
of these conceptions have been strangled in some man
ner. The friends alive Smtb-Trea,ury, then, ran again

by Liles M. Stilwell, Esq., U. S. Marshal of that Dis
trict, from the President of the United States, directing
him to surrender Christine Cochran, or Gilmour, (the
young woman charged with the murder of her hus
band in Scotland) to such officer of the British Gov
ernMent as may be duly authorised, under theterms of
the lute Treaty, to receive her.
She will doubtless be given in charge of Captain M'-
Kay, the rural police Officer who camitn pursuit of her,
and who assisted Messrs. Wm. &Biel and Walsh in
arresting her on the arrival at this plrt o'f the brig Ex
cel, in which she was passenger. The.. unfortunate
young woman is now in Eldridge streorprison, and has
received every attention that was possible in mitigation
of her fiudorn and melancholy position. From the
length of time that has elapsed since her commitment,
she has recently indulged hope of final escape, but the
illusion of course is dispelled, and she must now pre
pare for that tremendous ordeal that awaits her. Cap
tain ,M'Kay will probably embark with his unhappy
prisoner in the Boston steamer, which sails to-morrow.

excellent acquirenients, has acquired a character not
easy to be shaken. A large number of young men of
mature age, while pursuing an extended and thorough
course of studies, pay all their expenses by their own
industry, thus procuring useful knowledge for their
minds a:id some productive art for their hands. Their
applications are more than double their accommoda
tion;.—A-. Y. Sun.
In January, 1811, says the Philadelphia Chronicle,
a member of the London bar, named Wm. G. Knight,
absconded, taking with him a largo amount of money,
the proceeds of numerous forged hills of exchange,which
he had sold in London. A reward 0f..E.50 was offered
by time Bow street police for his apprehension, and the
adveraisemmas which appeared in the papers of, that
city, gave a minute description of his person. It ap
pears that after obtaining the money, he went to Gree
nock, in Scotland, from which punt he sailed for New
York, under the assumed name of John Cooper. He
arrived at New York about the 19. th of March, and took
lodgings at time Globe Hotel. Here he assumed the name
of \Vm. G. Kaac.
In Augtett, 1842, more than a year after his arrival
in thin country, his whereabouts was discovered by
officer James - Young, of the Philadelphia police, who
immediately took measures to have him arrested, Mr.
Young had received information that Knight was in
lowa, to which territory he proceeded, and having found
the individual had him arrested. A suit was brought
against him in that territory fur $12,000, mid
judgment obtained for the full amount. The whole
amount of the forgeries is $27,000. Ninety-one of
the forged bills of exchange, uttered and passed by
Knight, are in this country, and it behooves the public
to be on their guard against any future action of one of
the '4 oat adroit and consummate swindlers that ever
landed on our shore.

AN ENGLISH FORGER AND FUGITIVE
Messrs. Smith 4. Philips: Learning that it has been
industriously reported in different parts of Allegheny
county, that Dr. J. C. M'Cuily will not be recommend
ed wale coming convention, by his:own township, as a
candidate for Prothonotary; thereby dissuading and
preventing his friends in other districts, frombis support;
therefore we feel it our duty, as his neighbors, and as
democrats, to undeceive the party, by pronouncing the
report as groundless as it is unfair.and malicious. We
believe that Dr. M'Cully will receive the support of
the party at the primary meetings, in Upper St. Clair,
almost, if not quite, without a dissenting voice;—and
because we know him we earnestly recommend him to
the party, as every way qualified to make an honest,
pleasing and efficient Prothonotary.

Don't fold your arms until you can find something that

surprise and entire satisfaction. after the trial aft few
doses, was healed of my complaint, and restored to a
healthy action in my bowels. I can now say, I would

would advise all who may require its use to try it as I
have done, and they will be satisfied of its virtues,
You at liberty. Sir, to make such use of this as you
