• F.E;LLOW - CITIZENS: Ai the Whig 'County 'Convention held• in Angus
last, through delegates selected from the body of the people . we were 'mini
nated-mail..llaced'before you as candidates fOr the State Legislature. Al
though unsolicited on our parts, yet having been settled, we have detertnin
ed to rest the matter with you whether the selections made shall be confirm
ed_at the ballot-boxes.
The Convention which nominated us adapted and published a creed .em
bracing the principles and measures to be carried out and ndvocitted` by
• the opponents of 3iISIUTLE rind TX3cA.TroN in Cmpberland County—all of
Which were published• with the proceedings of the Convention, and have our
hearty approbation. • • ,
. But to leave nothing in the dark, and to take frotri our opponents the op
, portunity of saying we "avowed no principles for the'public eye," we here
DECLARE, that, seeing nothing but Debt, Embarrassment and Increased
Taxation before us—and knowing all to be the result of bad jegislation and
the mosereckless extraVagance in every departtnent of the . Government and
on the• Public Works,—should you see proper to elect us to the Legislature,
we will, so .far as in our Powei, most strenuously advocate and vote for the
following measures of Reform—to. wit:
Ist. TO limit the Sessions of-the-Legislature to 90 days at most, by pay
- Ingthe pet diem allowatice.only during that time, or by giving an annual
salary, not more than equivalent to the daily pay during that time.
2d. To pass a law requiring the Clerk of each House to note upon the
• journal, everyday, the names of all absent members, and to disallow the
pay. of such absentees in every case, except in that of sickness and inability
to -attend. --And also wholly to abolish the practice of paying niernbers dur
ing holyday adjournments, and. other. recesses of the Legislature. , •
Sd. - To - pass - a law defining the etnitingent - OkpensesTtit, the legislature, and
all other departments of the government, and confining the same to Station
ary, Fuel, Furniture of the Halls, and to Postage on letters and documents
sent to memberS during the session.
4th. 'To repeal-the law whicirftthorizes each House to draw for all their
expenses through their respective speakers, and to pass a law requiring all
accounts of each House, and every'depariment of the, government • to be
settled by.the Auditor General and State Treasurer; as in case of other ex
penditures of the public money. • . , •
sth. To pass a law
,consolidating the ,offices of Stirveyor General and
Secretary of the Land Office, so - that one head,and half the munherof elerks,
will_perform the duties of these'departments.
6th. •To pass a laW . 'giving Out all the ptiblic Printing, of- the Common
wealth for 4 tcrin'of 'three` years at a time to the lowest bidder; with ample
security_ for faithful performance, to'be approved by the governor. , .
. 7th. TO dispose of, for State State Stock, in payment.of the State debt, or
for completion, all the branches of the Palm. Works to companies, under
such proper restrictions and reservations as will effectually guard and pro
tect, all the interests of the,Cornmonwealth and thoseiif
• B,th. To dispose of in a shnilar.manner, and. for State Stock, the Main
Linefrom Pittsburg to-Philadelphia; Unless the legislature shall have clear
•and undoubted evidence that under the future manageMent 'thereof the'
commonwealth will derive' some reasonable amount of .revenue beyond the
expenses of repairs.and management. —•

a Congressional apportionMent bill, and that it
performed this duty, but that our enlightened and

Great Speech.
The long looked for speech, was delivered ac
cording to appointment in Fanelli' Hall, Boston,
on Friday afternoon last. It is of course a great
speech of a great man, but it will very much dis
appoint the majority of Whigs who read it. Mr.
Webster avows himself still a Wlng—"a Massa.
: Whig"—he praises the Whigs fur the
passage . of the Tariff Law,' one good effect of
which is that it destroys the "Compromise" prin
ciple of 183.2—1ie next censures the Whigs for
neglecting the Currency, and avows'himself in
favor of the E.icheque'r plan,uf President Tyler,
which he says ought to ho passed—the man who
now advocates a National, Bank, pursues in his
opinion,:an • obsolete idea. Mr. Webster next
speaks of the Veto power, against the indis
criminate use of 'which none, he says, has spoken
and written more than he, - and in the exercise of
which .in every • case 'by Mr. Tyler ho advised
against. , .Mr. Webster thinks there aro still other
important matters to be settled with Englund,
and intimates pretty clearly that he intends to Stay
in;the Cabinet to . arrange 'them. ,
