will support the great principle of
prote - etion to American Industry.
Senators and Representatives in the
State Legislature are also to be e

A BUENA VISTA VICTORY
So (dr the Election canvass has - been very
quiet, and we have had no public meetings.—
But if we hate bad no public speeches, we
hope there will be a good many private speeches.
Let every Whig make it his duty to taik with
_ t i,_n e istibor_en_the importance of the coming
election to press upon him the dUty of turn
ing out oil that day, and if necessary to Desist
in making his arrangements to do so. Let cv
cry Whig voter be a Whig speaker-, and address
every man tic ineetsi—ask him ,if ho is going
to attend the election, and how lie is going to
vote. If ho is indifferent or hike warm, rouse
hint 4i; if ho says lie cannot leave his work to
the polls, offer to stay and work in his place unit
_he returns from the z polls, if lib thinks of vo
ting the wrong way, straighten him out; if he is
a new voter, and has not been assessed, attend
to that . ; if he is an aged man, or has far to go
to the polls and no means of conveyance, pro
vide hint a horse or some other conveyance ; if he
is poor and cannot pay his tag, plank-out the
dust for him; tell him when the election will
take place (for we Tear many will forget it;)
tell him who 'are the Whig candidates, and
don't leave hint tiltdie hos ,promised' to attend .the
' election and VOTE THE WHOLE WHIG
Stay at the Polls!
There are too many who think they have
diechurged their —Whole duty when they have
deposited their vote. The result usually Is
that thk-hard-wur iO the polls is thrown upon
the shoulders ofa few men. This is not right.
After voting, every elector should ascertain
whettier his neighbor has voted, and if not, GO
AFTER MM. II every Whiff who "feels an
interest iu the result - of the coming election
would do what it is his duty to do, the result
would be just what he would have - it to be.

he, "from our example in the Stale T represent.
Illinois entered the Confederacy in 1618. Ever
'since that limo she has been under the govern

The Terry liveman says the Senatorial Can.
feypcs sho Met at 'Sierrett's Gap on Friday,
nominated A. W.. Monroe, Fc'q., of Newport
as the Whig candidate for Senator for the Fer
ry and Cumberland district. The nomination_
was ltra'ecord tvitli"the " decided pro=
ferencerespressed by the late Whig Convert,
thin, and we b, have it will be as satisfactory
in Cumberland as we are confi lent It is to the
'Whigs of Ferry.'
We have known Mr. MoNnon from our
youth. There arc but few men in thin coun
try, with whom we hive been . better 'personal
ly and politically acquainted; and we declare
without the least hesitation, that lie is an tion•
est, intelligent and most estimable gentleman.
Ilia fault—if fault it be—is that his modesty
has newer permitted him to sound a trumpet in
his Lavor.. -lits"qUalificat ions are we believe

Of theTcacc, they gave him t With hut one ex

a very reipectuble endorsement of our candi
date, and one too wh.ch he deserved to receive
from his neighbois. His morel character is
unexceptionable. The whisper of Slander
itself could way a disparaging word a
gainst it. Whilst his intellect Is sound and
clear, arid his heart in the right place, ho is one
of the most benevoledt men in the country.
We intend thie not as unmeaning compliment
to a partisan—it is the truth.
'As a politician, he is courteeus ao4 pleasant,

has never been found wanting when work was
to bo done to promote the prosperity of the
State or Nation. Theie is no color of Free
Trade about his principles. There is no aris
tocracy about him, either half concdaled or
half disclosed.—Not in affluent circumstances
himself, he know's the wants of the people,
and has always worked to protect the interests
of the laboring( man. He is Grin .and true in
the right cause. ' lie is the decided friend of
the present State and Natibnal Administrations,

the course pursued by THOMAS C. SCOpL

o‘ith characteiistio zeal, has thrown himself a

them to activity and energy in The contest.—
GaV. Johnston is in every sense of the word a
working Whig, mid we are glad to know that
bin efforts advance the Whig cause are at
tended with eminent , success, wtele they are
regarded with warm •admiratioa and approval
by his friends. On the 17th ho addressed an.

Saturday ho was with the victorious Whigs of

tesy peculiar to Locofocoism, calla Goo- Joan.
/TON a "political mountebank," hothouse in pur
suance of the invitation of his follow-citizens
'he has thought proper tovisit various _ portione
ul tho State, to discuss-the-principles and men
cures of the two groat parties. The Union
announces its "firm belief' that the Governor
has his eye upon the United States Senate, and
is now "scheming" to secure a majority of
Whig') in the next Legislaturepfavorable to his
election. But, says the Reading ! Trarnaf, it
we reccullect aright this same sort of "ache-
Ming" was practised some years ago by a cex 2 '
tain Francis R. Shunk, who visited Reading on
an electioneering, tour, marched through mud
and rain; at the head of a locofueo procession
In our street', and wound up by reading a
speech from the rostrum of the Court House
.to secure his election. The same kind of
"scheming." was adopted at the same thee by
a very disinterested patriot well known to 'the
democracy as the defeated candidate for Gov
ernor In 1848;—and if we aro not mistaken a
certain JAMES BUCHANAN, visited Reading no
later than two or three days ago, doubtless
with a similar view of "scheming" Jo effect
his own:political aggrandizement.
As to the charge that the Governor is desi
rous of a seat in the United States Senate, we
havd only to say that if each be his aspiration,
it is an honorable one. It would be hard fur
the Loc.:doer's to find a man in the ranks of
their party more deserving, or who would as
United Stripa Senator, more ably and faithfully
represent the great interests of the State. In
lhs respyrialble position in which thrrGovernor
harrbetin placed, lie has Moro than met the
public expectation. We need no better evidenito
than is presented in his, past course to ensure
us that in whatever new field he is placed, ho
would discharge his duty with credit to
self and his cuustituente.
TREASON IN THE SOUVI.—The Chivalry of

Mr. Editor—You have given me credit fur
what I do not possess, a thorough knowledge of
horticulture. There are many individuahi In
our county, who have given it“.morcr practical
attention, and are much bettor able to offer in
formation on this subject, than-1-can possibly
do; but I have waited in vain for some one to
move in the matter. Last year, we attemPted
to form an horticultural society, will, a view of
exchanging such facts and details as the expe :
rienco of-each migiirsuggeet; but after repeat
,.but fruitless efforts to get a meeting, it was
abandoned ; and ,:now my design is nothing
more than to call the attention. of those who
have hitherto neglected raising fine fruit to
what others have done, and thus stimulate ef
fort, so an to improve our markets and afford
our citizens luxuries they do not now possess.
'My experience 'hos been limited to a few kinds
of fruit, and I would be much indebted if the
practical fruit growers, and those who rear
vegetables foi market, would either give to
you, or allow me to embody their observations.
Fruits are appreciated, first for theio flavour
and juiciness. Second for their 81211 and beau

and lnetly.for their different uses and keeping
' - Any one wbutikl prefer a peach - or other fruit
of modiurn size: sweet and luscious to the taste;
to one much larger devoid of these qualities ,
bul if we'can obtain a large ono of rich flavor,
it has a double claim on our attention, and it to
that can be added beauty of colour and shape,
it is still more highly 'estimated, and still more
so if to these other qualities it is fount/tape
bin of being preserved fur a length of tfide, and
used for various purposes.
The Peach.—The natural division of peaches
is into free stones and cling latrines. There
are found at the base of the leaves of some
kinds of peaches small gram excrescences,
some round and some oblong, called glands ;
this helps with the shape, colour, taste of the
peach;tamiltie - tifferir — OtlfeViViWto — tfie — tirdrie;
together with the appearance of the leaves, to'
distinguish one from. another, and to classify
The host time fur planting the peach is ear
ly in the Spring, and they may be pruned of
that lime or when in bloom. 'The pruning
must not be inereljt — toking away i few crowded
small slinots from the body, but cutting half of
the last year's growth from the small shoots on
every branch ; two objects are attained by this
mode, the number of peaches are reduced so as
to give a bettor chance of largo ones of those
that remain; and second it gives a different as.

branches continually breaking down with (liv
