rZr The nada:mons art making a spasmodic effort
to animate their drooping and dispirited friends, by as
..suriag them of the election of No vile B. Craig. ‘Vo
• do not believe that the blue-nose candidate himself, or
any of the old experienced politicians of the party,
have the least idea of his success; the reckless false
hotels and bold perversions of fact which Craig has,
been guilty of, show conclusively that he himself con
eiders his chance a desperate one. But it is of course
prudent, by some such braggadocia, to keep up the
fainting spirits of his friends.
Let us turn to a former contest, when parties were in
pretty much the same position that they are now, with
- 4itis difference, that then the Antimasonic was the most
powerful faction of the opposition—nor, the whigs ate
believed to have the majority.
In 1841, there were three candidetesfor the Senate:
Dr. Gaszarn, Democrat, Wni. Little, Whig, and
George Darsie, A ntimason. Wm. Little was a pure
Whig candidate—or at least, pure sn l far as being un
tainted with Antimasonry could make him—and, of
COMMIS, did not receive the slightest support from the
• Antioursonic faction. Many whigs, although they pre
(sired Little, voted for Darsie, because they thought
ids nomination was made mom legitimately than that
of the whig candidate; and many Whig Masons, know.
Darsie to be a member of the Lodge, believed that
after the election, be would be a better Whig than An
timuon, cart their votes for him. Yet, notwithstand
ing these discouraging circumstances, Mr. Lertte re
ceived 766 votes. Every person who has any knowl
edge of the pelitical feeling of tho Jay, will admit, that
Mr. Brackenridge will receive a larger votethan this in
tie tent Mau alerse, and, backed as be is by the con
ciliatory nomination of a Whig and Anlimasonic Con
vention, he will receive a large Antimaxmic vote, for'
which an exclusive Whig candidate could have no hope.
out even suppose Mr. Brackenridge should get but the
Lrert.r. vote, how stands Mr. Craig's prospects then?
The most "impudent and ignorant" of his supporters,
cannot claim for him a larger vote than that of Mr.
Denim, and by referring to the returns it will be seen
thattbatgentleman was beaten by the democratic can-,
didatein tho county. Dr. Gaszarn received 4317,and
Darsie 4267-47 votes less than the democratic candi
date. Such was the result in 1841; and when they
could sot then elect their candidate, with all the force
of party centered upon him, and aided
by a large Whig support, how preposterous is it to talk
of success, when hundreds of Antimasons who then
voted. their ticket, are now united with the whigs.—
No one doubts but that Mr. Brackenridgo's vote in the
two cities will exceed Mr. Little's whole vote in 1841,
nor that he will receive a large vote throughout the
county. Yet with the facts before them, that we hare
stated, the blue-nose leaders are attempting to "gull
tile simples" in their party,by talking of the chance of
electing the Antimasouic candidate:
ALL RiADY.—During the past week some cf our
friends from almost every township in the county have
called at our office to get a supply of tickets, and they
all give the most encouraging assurances of a splendid
triumph of the democrats throughout the county.—
They are all ready, and feel confident that they will give
the coons the greatest dusting that ever they received
lathe county.
=Dr. HAYS has contradicted a rumor to die ef
feCt that if elected Sheriff he would appoint members of
his own family to the subordinate stations about the of
fice. The Doctor's word ought to be sufficient to, put
down this rumor, but we had other reasons to suppose ,
it to be untrue. If we are rightly informed, a gentle
men who will shortly go out of a good fat office at the
Court House, and another who is very actively enga
ged id electioneering for the Antimasonie candidate,are I
to receive the richest favors that the office can bestow.
But there is no danger that there will be any heart
buntings as to th t appointment of the Doctor's depu
ties; the Democrats will save him that trouble, and we
would, with a sincere feeling for their welfare advise
dame who are waiting to take office under him, to look
out for some other business, as we can assure them that
the Doctor won't appoint them. We received this in
formation confidentially and are not at liberty to give
geeemthority, but on next Tuesday the reasons will be
wok public.

bill of prices which had been' prepared, the preamble
to which contains the following paragmphst—
"Regardless of name or sect.a multitude of kulies in
this city have resolved to form themselves into a socie

to the privilege) that it will take such as are willing to
emigrate, “bag and baggage, from their own doors, and

will put them with all their effects on ship-board; will
provide them with good spacious berths and fixtures;
will supply them with good wholesome provisions for

Cape they will be furnished with a good dwelling for
six months, and supplied gratuitously during that time
with food and necessaries, including medical attend

which resulted in the murder of Jefferson Spaulding, a
citizen of that town. Spaulding was twice struck in
the head with a piece of iron by one of the men set to
keep guard about the tent, and his skull beaten in.—
He lingered, however, till Sunday night, when he died,
leaving a wife and three children to mourn his loss.
The savage deed caused intense excitement at Canaan;
a large bady of, the eithens armed themselves with
guns, and hurried to the scene of the murder, and sev

arrested. No clue to the gather of the murder had
been &eamed. It is said, however, that two of the
men who were in the employ of Messrs. Raymond &
Co., have fled.
Dusr.Litte.—Associalios at Nest, Orleans.—The
New Orleans Bee says, a society is about being estab
li,bed in New Orleans - for the avowed riurpose of array
ing against the practice of duelling, the influence of a
well directed, efficient and wholesome public opinion.
Legislation it says, cannot extirpate it, as it is intimately
blended with the feelings and sense of the citizen: and
laws too severcand utterly repugnant to the sentiments
of the communtty for which they have 1c..-on formed, are
foyer enforced.
The society is to beheaded says the Bee, by a number
of our most respectable townsmen,—many of whom
hove proved their valor on the field of honor, and are
thereforo well fitted to become leaders in the philan
throiic enterprise. One of the objects is t' engraft on
the code of honor, the established practice in France,
that where an insult has been offered, the aggrieved
party shall have the choice of arms, the reverse being
the case new. Also, that where the insult has been
pushed to the extremity of a blow, the further privilege
of the first shot is to be accorded to the insulted
vidual, in the event of the selection of arms.
Boston Post of the 30th says, that the match for a purse

"blind mare," name up within two lengths of P. The
second heat Pizarro had all his own way; time 2m. 3045.
On the third heat Pizaaro was closely pressed for three•-
quarters of a mile, but fur the last quarter he kept the
lead steadily, and came in in 2m 37ii. There were
quite a number of gentlemen from New York on the
ground. No accident occurred ; and every th;ng went
off regularly.
ald states that two enterprising gentlemen from the U.
States ure erecting buildings for an extensive manu
factory in the Charnherly District. They cannot well
avoid making the business highly lucrative. It is found
that in the coarser kind of Cotton goods manufactures
from the United States already crowd out the British
from the Canadian market. The duty in favor of the
British article is only 7 per cent., and this does not
meet the expenses attending two freights, the first of
Cotton to England and the second of thr rods back
again. Even at the high price of labor (from $2 to $3
per week) in the United Stacey, the Cotton Manufac
ture for the Canadian market is found to be profitable.
How greatly this will be increased when the labor is
done in Canada may be conjectured from the fact sta
ted by the Herald that in that province thousands work
frr as little as two dollars per moiellt, and are well
satisfied to get that!

St. Paul's church took I decisive vote yesterday after
noon on the exciting question involved in the "Pusey"
Controversy. Judge OAKLEY had offerod the' follow
ing resolutions:
Whereas, it appears that a doubt exists as to the
true construction of the rubric which directs that in
the ordination of a candidate for orders in the church
the Bishop shall call on the people, to make known the
existence of any impediment to such ordination, wheth
er any Presbyter in the church has a right to respond
to such call, as one of the people—and whether in case
any impediment be alleged, and the sante has under
gone a previous investigation upon a private complaint,
and has been determined by the Bishop to be linfound
od. it is, or is not, the duty of the Bishop to suspend
such ordination,
Therefore, for the purpose of solving such doubt,
Resolved, That the delegates from this diocese to the
general convention be requested to bring the subject to
the notice of that body, that such action may be had
thereon as may seem meet.
Resolved, That the delegates from this diocese to
the general convention of the church be requested to
propose, fur adoption, to that body, at its next meeting,
a canon which shall, in substance, provide, that when
the Pishop shall receive, from any two presbyters, ob
jections, in writing, to the ordination of any candidate
for orders in the church—notice of the time and place
of the examination of such candidates ahull be riven to
such presbyters, who shall thereupon have the right tc
be ptesent at, and take part in, such examination; and
that, for the avoidance of any misunderstanding or mis
take, all questions put to such candidate, and the an
swers made by him, shall be reduced to writing.
They were sustained very ably in a somewhat ex
tended debate, of which the Hon. Jou?' DUER main
tained a very prominent part. Their passage was
urged on grounds entirely disconnected with the par
ticular case which gave rise to the controversy, namely
the ordination of Mr. Carey. Judge Oakley said he
had not made up his mind fully as to the issues involved;
but that one point was very evident—namely that there
was room for great difference of opinion as to the right
or propriety of presbyter's interposing objections to
candidates for ordination when the Bishop calls for such
objections from the people; and he said that the reso
lutions were intended to provide for the removal of this
difference. It was necessary that the question should
be definitely settled. The opponents of the resolutions
contended that, whatever might have been the intention
of the mover, the resolutions did in fact express a deci
ded censure of the conduct of the Bishop in admitting
Mr. Carey to ordination; and on that ground they main
ly based their opposition. A motion was made to re
fer the resolutions to a committee. - This was nega
tived by a vote of 13 ayes to 10 nays, from the clergy,
and 35 ayes to 53 nays from the laity. The
was thou taken on the adoption of the resolutions and
decided in the negative, as follows: clergy: 18 ayes, 97
nays: laity 35 ayes, 53 nays—total 53 ayes to 150 noes.
This will probably end the discussion of the matter at
the present Convention.

The following striking view of this important sob
ject presented by Mr. EVCHIS AN, must appeal with
grt'ntfciree to every intetigent mind and patriotic heart:
"Tree, this wits a great, a magnificent inheritance;
and though the Senator was anxious to give it away, he
could not be more severe in his conviction that this was
wise policy, than he (Mr. B.) was that it would prove
dangerous and destructive. Without the lands what
would be our condition in the event of a war with Great
Britain or any other great naval power? Much of our
commerceOwould be driven from the ocean. and our rev.
enue ditties, would consequently cease. In such a mo
ment ofdanger, where would be our resort? Could we
then expect much aid from the States, whose citizens
were already tatted as much, almost, as they could bear?
Whilst this land fund is preserved by the generalgeyero
meat, he repeated, we could at any time, raise fifty
limns of dollars on the faith of its pledge. In the hour
of danger, when duties could not be collected, the pub
lic domain would be a sure resource for the relief and
defence of the country. He believed it ought never to
be surrendered. He knew it had been said that the
distribution law would cease to operate, by its own
terms, in time of war. But it would revive again on
the conclusion of peace; and therefore, you could never
pledge the fund for the payment of a debt contracted
either to prepare for war, or to conduct it to a successful
issue. All that you could 'obtain, would be only the
receiptsfrom land sales during the actual continuance
of the war."

to the holy union of the sexes, that " it is a fearful
sight to see the young; confiding girl, approach the al
tar with one who loves to linger round the wine cup.—
He may pass unscathed through the fiery ordeal, and
the bright hopes of the bride may ripen into fruition.
But, fair reader, let not the splendors of wealth, nor the
allurements of pleasure, nor the promised triumphs of
ambition, tempt you torisk so fraught with danger to
all you hold dear. Honest industry, joined with tem
perance, may crave a fortune, and all that ambition
should covet; but wealth, taleats, and fame, cart nay
er gild the drunkard's home, nor soothe the sorrows
of a drunkard's wife."

- -
"Our market for tha past week has been more dull
than during the two weeks preceding, and for two or
three days past our levee has presented an unusually
dull appearance. The receipts of the week have been
fair, but there have been few tninsactions worthy of
note. The river at this point has risen three feet, and
has now eight feet water in the channel between this and
the mouth. The Missouri and Illinois rivers are in
good navigable condition. there haring been a rise of
four feet in the former, and one in the latter. The
weather has been dry and sultry.
Flour.—,t few lots ofcountry flour have been sold
at $3 75 a 3 81. City Mills $4 a 4 25, and the sales
are principally confined to the retail trade.
Wheat —There is but little demand for this article.
There is an abundant supply on baud. We quote it
55 to 73 cents, according to quality.
Corm.—There its a fair demand for this article, and
we quote it at 25 cents without sack, and 20 cents
with sack.
o a / B .—Oats are firm at 18 cents. The market i
nearly bare.
Hemp.—The receipts have been light during the
week, and the demand is good. We quote it at .2,62
to 3,00.
Lead.—Lend is firm at $11,65, with an upward
IVAiskey.—Raw I VhiskeycoMmands 19 a 20e.
