JAMS M'SIIEREY, ESQ.
It will be perceived, has been chosen as a candi
date to represent this District in the next Con
gress. The people afil, well acquainted with "Mr.
M'Sherry, and know also that he has faithfully dis
charged the duties ‘ heretofore entrusted to him. Ho
is the friend of the American System, and opposed
to TAXING the people to uphold the extravagan
ces of the present dynasty. So much is he op
industrious people,that lie oven paid " the postage on
his letters i &e-at-the last Ligislature, and strenu
ously opposed the passing of the present unjust and
oppressivirtesjpx./ His opponent, is a friend of
those wild - rinsed that law, and if elected will, no
doubt, carry its spirit with him into Congress. So,
remember, that, by supporting JAMES 111 4 SHERRY,

$15,000,000. It was enlarged last winter about
5,000,000 of Dollars, and we presume will be in.
creased at the coming session about $5,000,000
more. This will bring it to 820,000,000. The
interest on this sum is ONE MILLION, but much
more must be raised to pay the collectors, &c. ,
therefore, we may set the sum dowh at 81,200,-
WIRT AND CLAY.--ErWa think our respected
friend of the Frederick Examiner errs in saying
that the Anti-Masonic party, in an "imperative
and arbitrary manner, insist upon the withdrawal
of Mr. Clay." However much we admire Mr. C.
for his devotion to the American System, and his
talents as an Orator and Statesman, we believe
there are others a ho are as equally worthy of the
highest office in the gift of the people. Conse
quently, we cannot—do not, and will not, "insist"
on his" w i thd rawal." I f the "Orator of the West,"
possesses the power and influence of uniting all
the friendsof the American System, let his friends
nominate him. lie cannot receive the support of
our party. Because, we have made our cnoice,
and in our Candidate we find Mi good a States.
man—as' sound a Lit—its able a Politician,
and as firm a National Republican, as in Mr. C.
True, Mr. Wirt has never travelled about, preach
ing aphis political creed; but whenever solicited,
he has freely and candidly given his views and
opinions on any subject. And whether the Anti-
Masonic party "is waning as rapidly as It arose,"
time, that tests all things, will prove. At present,
however; we know it is growing at home,
hear of its growth in other States, to the East,
Vet, North and South.
f our respected friend really doubts the purity
of Mr. Wirt's Anti-masonry—it' he also doubts
the, sincerity of the Anti-Masonic party, he ought
not to wish or ask them to yield to his party—be
cause, if Mr. W irt and the Anti.Nasonic party are
•not possessed of correct principles, they would be
no acquisition to any party.
Respecting Mr. Clay's being "as much art An
ti-Mason as Mr. Wirt," the acts ofeach will speak
plainer than the words of the friends of either.—
Mr.tilav Is, and always has been a high and stren.
nous adhering Mason, and would think it a dis.
grace to be termed an Anti-Mason. Mr. Wirt
never took but one or two degrees, and has pub.
fished to the world, that he considers "Masonry at
seer with the fundainental principles of the social
cempactt as treason against society, and a wicked
. against the laws of God and man . ;
*mot °vont. Teak PUT Down;" deems it high
and distinguished honor to be chosen the leader.
of; the opposition against Masonry, and says he
freely goorkwith us in the patriotic cause of "As.
, PLIIMINO SOPRZJIAOY OP Tine LANNI."
' Therefore, taking all ithings into consideration,
we ate not without, the hope 'of seeing, ere long,
our respected friend of the Examiner "rallying a.
mind the banner of"

To such of you as are not shackled
with Masonic Oaths, nor , influenced by a
fatal bias to support the proscriptive princi
ples of Free-Masonry, we desire to address
a few candid and dispassionate remarks
relative to the approaching Election.
On the TWENTY-SECOND DAY of
this month, it becomes your duty to elect
one of your number to represent you in the
next Congress. -- A party, which with un
blushing impudence,claims to be Democratic
—a party composed of actions, and frag
ments of factions—of all such as are willing
to answer the "HAILING SIGN" of Free-Ma
sonry, have nominated, and recommended
for your support, ROBERT MCCOY, Kr A
HIGH AND ADHERING MASON to!!
This party, whose great object is to sustain
the Masonic Institution, have hitherto be
guiled the people with false pretences.—
Knowing the indignation which the people
feel against that titled and 'cruel Order of
Nobility, they have themselves professed
to be opposed to it. But they havepretend
ed that it was unnecessary- to orgapize a
new party to carry such opposition into ef
fect; that they would, under their old party
appellations, exclude all adhering Masons.

ciple opposed to Secret Societies, have hith ,

the census of 1820, there where 7,956,269
whites, 233,400 free colored, and 1,5:31,436
slaves. The increase of whites has there
fore been 2,670,099, or 34 per cent; of free
ycolored 86,247, or 37 per cent; and of slaves

THE TARIFF CONVENTION.
The Tariff Convention which assembled
in New York on Wednesday the 26th ult.
was organized by the election of WILLIAM
WILKINS, of Pennsylvania, to..be
dent; JOSEPM KENT,. of Maryland, .I.tmus
TALLMAGE, of New York, GEORGE BLAKE,
of - tilassachtisettsi - and - Lzwts Coma r, of
New Jersey, to be Vice Presidents; and
Hezckialt Niles, of Maryland, Robert Til
lotson, of New York, ChAtrles Paine, of
Vermont, and Joshua, W. Pierce, of New
Hampshire to be Secretaries. About 430
members were present. A number of corn.
mittees were appointed to report on various
subjects assigned to them; among these were
a committee to prepare an address to the
people of the United States, a committee
upon evasions of the Revenue, a committee
to prepare a Memorial to Congress, a com
mittee to report on the effects o the existing
Tariff, a committee on the production and
Irtanufacture , :of ironot—committee on the
production and manufacture of wool, and a
committee on the culture of silk, hemp and
other agricultural materials used in the
manufactories of the country. These com
mittees, with others, presented reports to the
convention at the subsequent sittings-during
the week, which were discussed and dispo
sed of, and on Monday afternoon,- after hay%
ing empowered the Central Committee to
call a meeting of the friends of the American
System next year, if they deemed it expe
dient, the Convention adjourned sine die.
We understand measures have been ta
ken to establish an Anti-Masonic paper in
the City of Washington, to be issued twice
a week. •
Stich a paper, conducted with intelligence,
firmness, and discretion, upon the broad
and truly liberal principles of genuine Anti-
Masonry, woutdi be highly useful at - the
seat of the Government of the Uninn. Such
a paper we should hail a". sko. important sup
port of Wirt and the laves.
We expect to bo able to lay before our
readers the prospectus of such a paper in a
few days.—New York Whig.
Our rallying cry is " WIRT AND THE
laws." The National Intelligencer pro
poses "CLAY AND THE CONSTITIITION; "
and the Philadelphia Inquirer, "JAcasori
AND THE UNION.
We would simply ask of what practical
value is the Constitution, or the l Union, un
less the Laws made under them, can be
equally, uniformly, and every where, exe
cuted, and justice upheld on her throne.—lb:
The Election is 'over and the friends of
Equal Rights have cause to rejoice. In
spite of bitter opposition of the Lodge, and
the dishonorable efforts of the pretended
friends, we have, by, an increased and over
whelming majority, carried our ticket.
The Masonic party in nearly all the die-.
tricts except the City polled as many votes
as last year. The Lodge has given very
nearly as large a vote this year as they can
expect for next fall. Our vote for WIRT,
ELLMAKER arid RITNER, next election,
will not be less thim 8500, which will give
give us a majority of at least 3000. Such
is the prospect of the good cause.—Lan. Her.
