'WHAT WILL TILE IVHIGS DOI
Mr. EDITOR:—This is an interesting ques
tion -and one which I know is seriously exer-
Heising the minds of many of the old and faith
ful whips of the county, who have not accom
panied their former brethren into the ranks
• of a new organization.' Another annual Elec
tion is at hand.
,What shall the Whigs do?—
how - shall they most wisely act in view of the
present condition of things and the position of
other parties? _I see in the last Herald a call
for a Nominating Convention, and in your
brief allusion to it you state that although the
whips have but a slender chance of electing
their ticket they nevertheless have-a most im
portant and influential Hart to play in the.
canvass." This is undoubtedly true. They
not only have an influential part to play, but I
may safely add they have actually the power
to control and determine the result. They cm
not elect a ticket of themselves, but - they can
give success to either the American or Demo•
cratic ticket, and hence hark , a controlling in
Such is the state of parties nail with the
balance of power thus in their hands it c
hores the whips to consider well their action.
That action I,mny say in the first place, should
not be of a factions character but such ns will
conduce to the good of the country awl to the
advancement of sound principles. It seems to
me then that there are three different courses
open to the whips. They may effect a coalition
with 'the Americans by adopting the American
ticket—they may make a fusion with the
Dethocrats, an arrangement to which the latter
I tun told are not at all indisposed—or they
' may maintain a strictly independent organiza
tion, by nominating owl adhering to a ticket
of their own, regardless of what number of
votes it may receive. In writing upon this
subject I shall merely express my own views,
and presume your columns will be open to the
views of others who cheese to think and act
As to a fusion with the Democrats I for one
am utterly and
- invincibly opposed to it, How
ever odious the secret organization of the
Americans and however strongly I may desire
to see it broken up. it would be a sorry tri
umph', incleco!;4to-effect such a result through
victorious locor,moism. Timm may have been
Whigs who a few months since could' have
consented to form nn alliance with the denio•
oats in order to annihilate the "dark lantern
order," hut such I am sure would scorn to do
so since the democratic State Convention of
the 4th of July, when the democracy so much
more basely than ever before bowed its knee
to the dark spirit of slavery, when it coolly
winked at the outrages in Kanzas, pail Wittll
with the most shameless meanness it allowed
n gallant Pennsylvanian in the person of Gov.
Reeder, to be come the victim of cold-blolded
political assassination, without uttering one
word of rebuke while noble old Pennsylvania
was thus basely stricken down, her rights
raged and her pride insulted! Shall whips
fOrin an nllinnee with such a pusillanimous
and self degraded party, and aid them in sus
taining the e,rrupt an , ' traimrous administra
tion of Franklin Pierce': Never! No man with
the genuine spirit of a Whig of the olden time
can aim: il , kl , e himself.
Whether the Whigs and Americans shall
unite in the support of the same ticket, ninst
greatly depend upon the course pursued by
the Americans in making their nominations.
It' they are determined to continue their ex
elnsiv'e system—to lock themselves lap in their
midnight conclaves, while they secretly con•
cpet their plans rind nominations—a proper
feeling of self respect may also prompt Whigs,
whose co-operation is not sought in council, to
be equally indifferent when in the hour of
trial, their co-operation would be the pres,ti; , e
of victory. The Whigs
,in my opinion might
consistently unite with the Americans—especi
ally since the latter have set themselves right
upon the Missouri Compromise question by
their action at the Reading Convention—if
the American party would at once abandon
their secret organization,- and take ground
freely and openly with all who sympathize
with their leading principles and objects. In
connexion with the American party hundreds
of democrats have now taken a bull and de
cided stand against the Pierce Admidistration,
which most of them aided to bring into power.
But disgusted with its truckling subserviency
to foreign influence and slavery propagandism,
they have indignantly renounced-its doctrines
and nobly broke loose from its degrading
thraldom by uniting themselves with the
American organization. There is now but ono
thing in the way of a union between the
Whigs and the Americans, and that can be
removed at once by the will of the latter. It
is the odious secret organization. The objec•
tion of the Whigs is not the principles of the
American party in the abstract, but to the
secret meetings and the alleged arbitrary do
minion of the majority over the minority.
Freedom of' thought and freedom of•• action
are the life of republicanism; the opposite is
deipotism.' Hundreds of Whigs have gone
into this organization and ore now acting with
it. I impugn not their motives- 7 -4 question
not their patriotism. I only say for myself
and other Whigs who aro still outside of its
Pule, that our objections to joining-the organi
zation are insuperable. And it' the obligation
'qf secrecy is to be obstinately and pertinaci:
ously adhered to, and the 'Whigs thus debarred
from political go operation, be it so.. 1 can

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 8, 1855.
only express my regret at the blintlness and
folly which thus recklessly adheres to a false
policy at the hazard of political ruin. For it
is evident on all sides that the pOlicy of secrecy
has fully renched the climax of its potency,—
that it canno longer be of practical advantage
to the party which has:ndopted it, hut that on
the contrary its increasing odiousness is rapid
ly diminishing the power of the American
party. The mysterious "Sam" goes not for
ward now, as a year ago, "conquering and to
conquer." His invisible wand has more than
once failed to vindicate its potency in recent
contests,' and the battling democracy seems to
be infused with fresh courage. Can the
American party see these results and not take
warning? Shall an obstinate persistence in
their exclusive policy he allowed to precipitate
defeat, and defeat be followed by annihilation?
The great Presidential contest is approaching.
It is the favorable period to unite the allied
forces for the grand assault, or the political
Sebastopol may gain new strength and after
divided and discordant assailants have vainly
wasted their fire, may rear its hateful towers
in prouder triumph.
Mr. Editor, I have written, as one Whig, to
indicate what I think is the probable spirit
and feeling of a majority of the Whigsr" — To
concentrate the elements of opposition which
new exist against the Pierce administration I
think an all important object. Will the Ameri
cans continue to pursue a course which must
not only defeat that object but eventuate in
their own ruin? I trust not in the spirit of

after of a powder mill about three hundred
yards distant, containing about 1400 lbs of
powder. The report of the two was terrific.
By the second explosion the mill was utterly

NEWSPAPERS. Judge Longstreet, whose
views on any subject are sensible, practical'
and worth treasolJog up, thus sets foi.th the
value of a newspaper:
'Small is the sum that is required to pat
ronize a newspaper ; and most amply remu
nerated is the patron. I care not how hum
ble and unpretending the gazette he takes, it
is impossible to fill a sheet fifty-two titnes
year without putting into it something that is
worth the subscription pried. Every patent
whose son is off from home should furnish him
with a paper. I well remember what a differ
ence there was between those of my school
mates who had and those who had not access
to newspapers. Other things being equal, the '
first were always decidedly superior to the
last in debate and composition at least. The
reason is plain : they had command of more
facts. Youths Will peruse newspapers with
delight when they will read nothing, else."

it is riot spoiled IT food; it is only spoiled for
light bread. The dough, instead of rising by
too ordinary process. has a tendency to spread
outetrol form a sticking mass that will not be
kneaded into loaves. It makes good unleaven
ed bread . , and is quite nritritious, with a sweet
ish taste. By many per Sons bread made of
sprouted wheat is preferred, but in market the
least appearance of grown kernels will injure
the sale. Some millers even contend that one
per cent of such kernels will injure the quality
of the whole. It is therefore important to the
farmer that he should be very careful to keep
the sprouted sheaves separate from the sound,
and should also separate the sound from the
unsound grain in winnowing, as far as possible.
THE CHOPS AND THE HARVLST.—The panic
got up in Western New York about the ruin
said to have done to the wheat, has subsided.
The damage, it is said, was greatly exag
gerated. From Wisconsin, a letter dated at
Ottowa, July 26, sny.s , "There aro excellent
crops in Wisconsin of every description, nud
the harvest is now general. Corn and pota
toes also promise well." The ndvices from
Tennessee and Georgia are that a large corn
harvest is rendered certain. The wheat crop
in those States, is also large. The Southern
wheat crop has been well gathered, and the
grain is arriving in market. It is said that
the peach crop in New Jersey and Delaware
will be_the largest ever known.
Plums or PROVISIONS.-A heavy provision
denier of New York, just icturne:l ;•ion, on
extensive blt•iness tour in the West, says
th:re are “no two ways about it; prices have
got to. come 'down; not only flour, but pro ,
viz:ions of all - kinds, will soon be lower than
they lin,ve been for toi-eral years.''
