With Rough and Ready wo gained the-day,
We'll gain it now with Chippcway;
We'll make the loccfocos feel,
The power of brave Chippy's steel.
So clear the way with your vile party,
Clear the way with your vile party,
Clear the, way with your vile party,, .
We'll go for ScoLt with will right hearty.
To Baltimore the Locos went,
To nominate a President,
Their timber being might scarce,
They nomin-ited Franklin Pierce. .
So clear the way &c. ,
O, such a time ut that convention, ,' .
Such quarreling and such contention ;
At length they thought it would not do, .
So took a man entirely new.
Bat clear the way &c.
But the Cass men say they wont go Pierce,
He faints whene'r the battle's fierce ;
His votes too they have not forgot,
And so they nil will go for Scott.
So clear the way &c
The people do not want a King,
And say they'll not be ruled by him,
They'd rather far on free soil tread,
With good Scott soup and Graham hr. .
So clear the way fcz.
The locos say we cannot boast,
Save in the deeds upon the coat;
But to his country Scott proved true,
And that is more than Frank did do.
Then clear the way &c.
From North to South, from E.ist to West,
The people like Wmfield the Lest;
Hie noble service they'll repay,
At tho pulls upon election da)'.
Then clear the way ye loco party,
Clear the way with your vile parly,
Clear the way ye fainting party,
We'll put in Scott with will right hearty. '

of oppression, what amount of fraud
would be 'sufficient to arouse' the people
of this State to a true sense of the danger
in which they arc .placed. The inanaae -
ment of our. public works, ibr a lon -
series of years, has heen-characterized by
lying, perjury, robbing, stealing, swind-
linn, and every other species of g eat ras-

nal commissioners, eno-ineers, supervisors
and callectors have been implicated in the
most nefarious transactions transactions
ofinfamvas would have excluded thpm
forever from intercourse with respectable
people. It would seem, however, that a
new school of ethics has been established
in this unfortunate State. A canal officer
