Is ANOUS ISSIILT TO THE DEMOCRATS OF ALLE
rai rat y Cotrwri.—We saw yesterday a publication, in
newspaper form, entitled "Light for the People," in
whiekran effort is made to distract the Democratic par
ty, by assailing some of its most prominent members,
who are spoken of for public stations, and others who
are *tot heforeihe people for any office. If this attempt
to create discord in the party proceeds from persons
• whoesß 'themselves democrats, it is evident that they
havaao regard for the party, and that to gratify their
fee This of personal malignity, they are willing to be
come doe despicable tools of the whigs and antima.ons
to pall down men who arc considered worthy the confi
dewier of the party.
nitt, we cannot think that this vile attempt to deft-at
ouiticket at the coming election, proceeds from a ny on
who has a pure regard for the success of the Demo
cratic oeuse. It shows a violation of confidence that
allhonorable Democrats should revolt at, and resorts
to mesas, of to4glult that have never been tolerated by
our party, even against its bitterest opponents. Pri
vate letters, addressed under the seal of confidence,
appebr in its columns—how they were obtained we
know not; it must have been by surreptitious means , as
it appears incredible that the gentleman to whom they
were addressed would let them out of his possession
for the dishonorable purpose to which they have been
applied. Private correspondence is always consid
ered sacred among men of ordinary honor, however
much the writers may differ in sentiments, and we do
no; know an act that excites such universal abhorrence
is betrayal of such confidence.
As another evidence that the democratic piety can
hare nothing to do with this vile publication, we may
state that itis issued from the office and published by
the man who unblushingly proclaimed himself the pub
lisher of the "Man About Town," a paper that was
started forth° most infamous purposes. and the gross
obscenity of which provoked a mob to attach: its edi
tors; anal scatter the type on which it was printed in
the public street. We ELM reluctant to suppo,“e that
any 'oneconnected with the democratic party hail a part
in getting up the xuppleatent to thi3 11111.111,MS sheet,
that appeared yesteriay, or that they would employ the
aid of the "Man About Town" to revile respectable
members of the party.
That it will be execrated by evori pm lent :leni _tem!
we have no doubt, for to countenance such a system of
dishonorable attack would degrade and injure our
cause more than all the open falsehoods and misrepre
mm4o.l'ol33 of our opponents; and it is hoped that the
frier:rasa tbe g neemen who are attempted to he inju
regiby its insidious friendship (!) will take an early op
portunity to disclaim all connexion u itli the di •honor a_
ble attempt to distract our ranks.
It will no doubt be widely circulated Lc the whig,s
and elltiMl33oll9. and those who would rather gratify
emir private malice than insure die ,ueccs. of our tick
(' ; 'Jut the dem - (zits will I,n_nr how to estimate it, and
treat it as they would any ether efforts of nn enemy to
draw/ the harmony of our party.
tir The Gazeve wo.,'t rp rak to our ( I n , stion of yes.
terday, it is as silent as the grave in regard to the union.
Wonciw ask our neighbor once more, to enlighten the
public as to his opinion reliecting the propciely of Mr.
Craig's conduct in refusing, to serve on a union ticket,
ard wht ther he agre:?s w thm gentleman, when he d. -
dares that he (Craig) ran on a union ticket once too of
tea. But, above all, we call on him to state whether
there is not still a project on foot among the leaders to
forma union, during Mr. Craig's absence, and to sacri-
fiee a portion of the:indium:mite ticket to make Nvay for
the favorites of the "tnasonic twigs?" Once more we
say, speak out, and no dodging—the country people
want information, and if you are not going. to recite
the late efforts to 8.211 the i aly, you can have no ob
jectio' a to answer these plain, repectful que,ahms.
TRADE AND BUSINESS OF THE MISS IS trpi.—Some
idea of the extensive trade and business upon the
Mississippi may be learned from the following facts,
which we find in a St. Louis paper. It says lust year
there were 450 steamers navigating that river, avera
ging each 200 tons, and making an average tonnage of
90,000. They cost above $7,000,000, and were navi
gated by nearly 16,000 persons—about 35 each. Be
side.; these steamers there are about 4,000 flat boats,
which coat each about $450, managed by five hands
each, or 20,000 persons, and make an expense of $l,-
380,600. The estimated annual expense of the steam
navigation, including 15 per cent. fur insurance, and
7, cent. for wear and tear, is $13,618,000.
RIMEAL ATION IN FRANCE.—The Paris Na
tional of the 15th ult. states that a banquet took place
Paris the day before, in compliance with the wish
manifested by the Repealers of the United States. The
company consisted of 100 persons, among whom were
the deputies of the extreme gauche, members of the
institute, literary men, electors of Paris, commanders
anti officers of the National Guard, and a deputation
niche Patriots of New Orleans and Rouen. Mr. Le
arn RoPin, a deputy, opened a subscription fur the "cen
tral fund of the Repeal;" and at the pressing invitation
tion of the assembly, promised to proceed forthwith to
visit the directing committee of the association, and be
the bearer of the relief to be forwarded to them as a tes
timony of the lively interest taken in the cause of all
opposed nationalities; and, finally, to assure the Irish
people, that should the struggle, hitherto pacific, ever
become violent, France would no more be deficient to
Ireland than she was, 11 7 ,11 f a century ago, to the noble,
courageous efforts of the American Repul,lic, %%kinn that

On Saturday last three yeung men named Sa fowl
Rhoads, John Miller, and Joseph Clegg, were bound
before Judges Parsons and King, -uf the Court of
Common Pleas, on a writ of habeas corpus. It art
pears that they had been bound over by one of the Jus
tices in Bucks county, on a charge of conspiracy to de
fraud the creditors of Clegg. They were surrendered
to the Sheriff here. The writ was issued to the Sheriff
and bail of Bucks county, who returned that they held
thent under the hail piece issued by the Justice. Mr.
Dickenson, the counsel for the creditors, contended
that the Judges of this county had no power to investi
gate a crime committed in another county, and that if
sufficient evidence was set forth on the warrant of
commitment, they were bound to remand the prisoners.
The Court sustained Mr. D. in his views, the Judge
stating that he could do no other way than to surren
der the petitioners to the custody of the court by which
they were first tried, and to the prison in the county
where the offence was committed. if otherwise, all
rogues would be entitled to the same privilege, and the
Commonwealth be required to produce witnesses in
their several cases, to be tried in counties distant from
the one in which the ctime was commituxl.

Messrs. Editorst—Ai an old supporter of the Dem
eratic cause, I take the liberty of making some sugges
tions to the party through the medium of your valuable
and disinterested paper. I have for a great many years
closely watched the movements of the people in making
a selection of suitable candidates to be placed upon the
Democratic ticket for the support of the party. As I
have frequently had the honor of serving as a delegate
at the conventions, I have always used my influence and
gave my support to such candidates as I firmly believed
would strengthen the party, by selecting them from dif
ferent parts of the country, as well as from the city,
giving to each as equal a share as possible, in order
that no portion of our party should have cause of com
plaint, and thus by cutting off all reasonable cause of
dissatisfaction, render more union and strength in sup
port of the ticket.
As there are many candidates proposed to fill the dif
ferent offices to be voted for at the next election and the
friends of each candidate are becoming warm on the oc
casion, I would appeal to their sense of justice by re
minding them of the policy of strengthening the ticket
by removing all cause of disaffection by choosing from
the candidates for nomination persons residing in the
city or in its immediate vicinity, and from &Greet parts
of the county. For instance, one member of Assembly
from tie city or vicinity, and three front as many parts
of the county; for Cominissionet, one from the city or
immediate vicinity, there being already two from the
county, and in like proportion with the other candidates.
flaying no other object in view but union and strength,
I beg leave to oficr the above suggestions to the consid
eration of the people at th •irprimary meetings.
August 16,1841 AN OLD DEMOCRAT.
Messrs. Editors: I am pleased to learn that your
columns are open to those who prefer this mode of
giving publicity' to the claims of candidates for nomina
tion ut the Demo( retie County Convention. This is as
it should be. A refusal to to do so, on the part of the
democratic press, would create an incalculable amount
of ill-feeling, and tend only to promote dissatisfaction
and, perhaps. dissolution in the ranks of the party;
especially when, at this juncture; every candidate has
less or more influential friends to urge his peculiar
claims. andio take great interest in his success.
But I ant pleased with this resolution on the part of
our press, not only because the harmony of the whole
press is thereby preserved; bat Instause I am afforded
the opportnnity of contributing my feeble effitrts to
wards &Um; justice to one whose claims have heretofore
been much neglected; and whose character fur integri
ty and capability stands as unquestioned and unques
tionable in this community, as that of any other which
is likely to be brought before our county convention for
the same office. I
allude to ROBERT GLASS, Esq., of
the city of Pittsburgh, who is an applicant7for the of
fire of COCNTY TREASCRER•
Mr. Glass has been a citizen of Pittsburgh for more
than thirty-eight years, during all of which time he has
'acted well his part" towards the promotion of Demo
cratic principles. He has not, like many in called
Democrats of the present day have done, forsaken the
party at a time when danger stamped its prospects as
almost hopeless—aor has his patriotism required a
stimulus in the shape of same good office, to keep him
firm in the faith; but has remained steadfast to the cause
through good and evil report, since he became a resi
dent of Pittsburgh.
1 write nut these with a vi..w I li.7:wage the claims
of others. There are in Lay demecrats
who u ill come to the convention, front town and eOllO
- well prepared to assert claims of the strongest
kind; but I hazard nothing in saying that no name will
be brought before that body possessing claim♦ superi
or to those of Robert Glass; or whose personal worth,
and high standing in the estimation of the citizens of
Allegheny county, will be likely to secure a more cor
dial support of the whole Democratic Ticket than his.
AN OLD DI:MuCRAT.
Messrs. Editors—l see a communication signed M.
in your paper commenting on the pretensions of Col.
Hawkins to the Prothonotaryship. He says," l hare no
objectilais to the Col.. nor shall I questiais the suffi
ciency of his claim,. But Ido protest against the
mean alb mpt mail( to stir up section a l pr e j u di ce ,.
to carry him into office; of the Ca!, eliptes, the wri
ter Inlklabout, I know nothing. I core n ,, thtn g ,. If
they e xi s t, I ?tare yet to fin.l them."
N.) mon.i.•r M. prote,ts against sectional prejudiee,
no doubt he is one that wiltes to keep all t h e offi
ces in the city scction, where they an• now. No won
de•r cannot see the management of the city chyle:.
he knows nothing, nor cares nothing-, none so baud a •
he that wont .1 . ; UM' eared //Whin'!" of course not, so
the cliques get all themselves, they care nothing for
the rights of others. But M. says "the most piteou s
complaint about the County hein,g deprived of the
offices, is not only contemptible, but it it false as re
grs nix Me office of Protkanotary." Ilea M. admits
that the Comity is d eprived of the offices, except Pro
thonotary. To the Prothonotary M. takes exceptions;
now there was not a word said in the piece alluded to
by M , about any one office in particular, but made a
getwral charge that out of 12 or 15 offices, hut 2 or 3
are filial by cititensof the county. If this is what M.
means is false, I will not retort back the foul epi
thet offalschood,but leave it to the people in the coun
ty to decide for themselves. Ave, as the honest part
of the people of the city, Ince out Mr. M. and his
eril workers or cliques, and we will have an over
whelming majority in the city to say, as all the countty
says that the country people are juggled out of their
rights. They would brand Mr. M. with falsehood,
whether he can sec or not, or whether he cares for the
rights of others or not.
Again M. says, "it is unjust and erroneous, to sup
pose elicit a man's location can add to his claims on
his popularity." From this doctrine I should sup
pose M. did not belong to t h e democratic party, he
must be a Tylerite, or he surely would not let go the
claim we urge so strong for James Buchanan, not only
from his merits or his competency, but from his locali
ty, belonging to the old Keystone State, who has never
had a president. As for what M. says about the big
eared gentleman, and the logic on Wilkins township,
Se., it is not worth printing, and I shall not reply to it.
Certain democratic presses have been busy, of late,
laying "bare as a bodkin" the details of various leagues,
conspiracies, and plots, concocted in different quarters
for different purposes. These revelations have been
made with due patriotism and faithfulness, and just as
setiously as though the revelmors really believed in
their existence. These plots, if we can credit the ac
counts, have been deep-laid, and boded awful conse
quences. Had they gone on until ripe for execution,
they would have been as terrible to the cause of democ
racy as the old Guy Fawkes plot, or the Rye-House
plot, or the Meal-Tub plot would have been disastrous
to the cause of Protestantism. The master-plotters
have been certain long-headed democrats and whigs,
and their objects have been to break down the demo
cratic party. and to elevate to office, or to "kill off,"
certain distinguished men. Sometimes Martin Van
Buren is plotting with John C. Spencer to crush John
C. Calhoun by means of the government patronage;
sometimes John C. Calhoun is in league with Daniel
Webster to storm the Presidency by means of the great
scheme of commercial treaties; sometimes David Hen
shaw is in full league with the two former to build up
the third party: the very last plot that has been almost
miraculously unravelled, is one that the new Secretary
of the Navy has set about on his own hook—iris to re
store the whigs to their commanding position of 1840.
Re it borne in mind that these plots, with but oun ex
ception have been discovered exclusively by editors
calling themselves democratic. None other deserve
any of the glory of the exposition. The merit of this
day may be enhanced from the fact that they have had
the advantage of no positive testimony. The clues to
the various plots have been few
-"but trifles light as air
Are to the jealous confirmations strong
As proofs of holy writ."
Let this be borne in mind, and credit freely given
where credit is due.
The plots which of late have fallen so thick upon us,
carry back our thoughts to the times of ninety-eight.—
Then they were as plenty as , blackberries, and far
more appalling than the present ones. They constitu
ted the "last card" of fa/ling federalism. When-the
canvass that at last resulted in the elevation of the il
lustrious Jefferson was going on, the federal leaders saw
that the tide had tamed against them, and that some-

thing must bedone, and that, too, quickly done, to save
1 their sinking ship. Hence they attempted to inflame
the public mind, and succeeded to a certain extent, by
connecting the democratic party with the Jacobin par
ty of France. The latter, in their world-wild propa
gaudism, weretaking steps to revolutionise republican
America; to overturn otir meeting-houses, burn our Bi
bles, and divide our property. Robinson's proofs of a
conspiracy, Barreul's exposition cf Jacobinism, Doctor
' Morse's exposition of the foreign interference, were
books circulated far and wide. Details of Tailor-plots,
Tuh-plots, Lady-plots—of ocean massacres—and of
"Wild Irishmen"—were set on float in every quarter.
One vast conspiracy, it - was said, existed against repub
lican America, and Robert G. Harper, the great ora
tor and gun offederalism in Congress, gravely stated in
his seat that he hal the clue to the whole business, and
would soon unravel it, our capitals were to be burned;
and nor liberties destroyed. Political sermons were
preached; hand-bills in glaring capitals greeted people
as they came from Church on Sunday, revealing the full
detection of these horrible plots. And so it was kept
up until after the election. These were plots some
thing like. People believed them—we mean the old
federalists. If the danger was imaginary, still the
alarm was real—more than can be said of the present
day conspilacies. A few flats are caught by these plot
stolies, but not one in a thousand of those for whom
they am specially intended believe them. The great
body of the democracy Laugh at them. And we se
rioudy doubt whether any two of the revelatory can
meet each other and refrain from laughing, too, any
mere titan the two soothsayers, whom Cato the Censor
speaks of, could when they saw each other bony in their
Fie on this attempt of democratic editors to imitate
the electioneering tricks of old federalism. It is not
their vocation, and they make poor work of it. Why,
the whole hatch o f plots would not make one equal to
the old Tub- lot, or create a tithe of the alarm that this
did in its dui The fact is, the editors who are hatch
ing, them out so freely don't understand the matter. To
have a plot succeed, the public mind must be ripe for it.
To make it ripe fora real "raw head and bloody bones"
one, there mist be previous daises of medicine, care
full prepared. Besides: the times must favor it. All
these things have been neglected: hence they du not
take well. If our co-laborers in the cause of democra
cy will persist in this plot business, we beseech them
to lay them deeper. Let the next one at least keep
probability in view. Thus far they base been as weak
as the water which would not run down hill. The plot
now on hands makeslarger demands on our credulity
than Matthias made on that of his followers: Fie, wo
say again, on this plot-work. Democrats have better
business to engage in, if they will roll up their sleeves
to it. Let them defend their own great political meas
ures, and expose the enormity of the measures that w•i(l
assuredly be saddled on the'country if that "darling can
didate tif aristocracy"—llvittor CLAY—wilts the victsi
ry. Here is business worthy of their time and talents.
Shame on this losing sight of principles in useless guar
rels about men.
NOTICE OF lIMINEMAN
